Whether or not a movement emerges from these tensions certainly remains
to be seen and with a non-democratic ruler in America, a certain nadir
has been reached in progressive political life.

However, I don't believe the situation is hopeless or that unexpected
events will still emerge from out of the current wreckage.  

I also don't think that these, when and if they, occur will be
explicitly Marxian, poststructuralist or global in nature. They will
more likely be local and heterogeneous revolving around particular
issues, at least initially.

For me, the important thing here is to have a forum for discussing these
issues in a way that is philosophical as well as political.


Perhaps a new physics of action without agency will emerge
from a philosophical haze betwixt Monty Python's dead???
parrot and waiting for Godot, the ultimate "is it happening"?


P.S. Expect the unexpected.
