Re: <nettime> Eric X. Li: Democracy Is Not the Answer..

What unites China with other citizen-dominated nations is armed
authority, and big D Democracy is not democracy any more than
Communism is communism or Capitalism is capitalism -- or
Education is education.

Hypostatizing of seemingly benign ideologies or beliefs renders
them into aggressive armaments, by intellectualizing the legitimization
of homicidal tools as necessary defense of protective authorities
in their multiple guises and disguises.

Opposing authorities is complicit with them for they thrive on
conflict. Treason is the club posied over every dissenter who foolishly
"goes too far," that is, engages in physical attack beyond soothing
verbosity, that is the law promulgated by all armed authorities.

Propaganda for offical, state, religious, commercial and their unified
agenda  has alwars been the primary source of funding for intellectual

Double- and triple-crossing NGOs and non-profits have never been
anything but inside authority and never will be for they thrive on
appearing to be different from, even prentendng to oppose, authorities
but never ever seek to undermine the source of their sustenance.

Bring back the draft to teach those OWS spolied idlers a lesson,
the ideahawks are ever on the ideapath to profiting from cheap
labor, big S Students.
