unhinged 'i prefer the gradual reforms of a functioning, liberal democracy. i fear the process of massive social engineering. i detest the poison of violence. i would rather live in a system in which our social institutions permit the citizenry to nonviolently dismiss those in authority and promote the common good, a system in which institutions are independent and not captive to corporate power. but we do not live in such a system. we live in a system that is incapable of reforming itself. the first step to dismantling that system is to dismantle the ideas that give it legitimacy. once that is done, though the system may be able to cling through coercion and fear for years, it will have been given a mortal blow.
