Re: Foucault and Revolution

Perhaps this example of the Chekoslvakian Velvet revolution could give some
perspective to this discussion. In 9 days, students with no experience
organized a mass strike to protest the oppressive government. 5,000,000 people
participated, and in 24 hours, the government backed down.

"It is only after one ceases to reduce public affairs to the business of
dominion that the original data in the realm of human affairs will appear, or,
rather, reappear, in their authentic diversity." -- Hannah Arendt
