Yellow group: results of first iteration

Depending on which meaning of revolution you’re using, different activities can be classed as revolutionary.

 

Yellow group: results of second iteration

We disagreed:

- That we need a revolution in civil society to transform it into a political society and gain functional independence from business and corporate elite

- That we must accept that no big idea can last forever

- That revolution necessitates ending capitalism

- On whether revolution is possible

 

We agreed

- That we need to establish who are the agents of revolutionary change

- That using biological and systems theories as a means of understanding revolutionary change, either as a theoretical framework or a metaphor, deserves further discussion

Yellow group: results of third iteration and final statement

A definition of revolution:

TIME: Revolution is a process with explosive moments. It is dynamic and not unidirectional.

MEANS: It’s not the means that define the revolution, but the objective. We think that the means must be prefigurative of the objectives – that means that there are certain red lines which cannot be crossed.

OBJECTIVE: If you cannot stand the current situation, you do not care what will happen the next day OR a non-normative radical change from the status quo.
