Harnessing Mistrust for Civic Action « … My heart’s in Accra
In his 2012 book, “Twilight of the Elites”, Christopher Hayes suggests that the political tension of our time is not between left and right, but between institutionalists and insurrectionists. Institutionalists believe we can fix the world’s problems by strengthening and revitalizing the institutions we have. Insurrectionists believe we need to abandon these broken institutions we have and replace them with new, less corrupted ones, or with nothing at all. The institutionalists show up to vote in elections, but they’re being crowded out by the insurrectionists, who take to the streets to protest, or more worryingly, disengage entirely from civic life.

Joe Beef and the Unfortunate Appeal of Ignorance - HeadSpaceHeadSpace
“Business is business” may seem like a reasoned reply to the sometimes unfortunate consequences of daily commerce, but it’s really more sidestepping pleasantry than wise commercial aphorism. It neatly avoids the deeper questions and collateral damages of the capitalist model we all live in, allowing those directly involved to continue with their singular pursuit of More, while giving those on the outside permission to go blissfully on with their day-to-day, all parties very relieved to be free of any direct responsibility, clutching their believed free-passes as they drive on through the ruins.

The factory owner polluting waterways to save on operational costs, the oil company lobbying government so they can keep on drilling, the advertiser playing on our insecurities – all share the bond of trading something valuable in ways hard to measure for the chance at more.

Fail better
It is an aesthetic and an ethical failure: to put it very simply, you have not told the truth. When writers admit to failures they like to admit to the smallest ones - for example, in each of my novels somebody "rummages in their purse" for something because I was too lazy and thoughtless and unawake to separate "purse" from its old, persistent friend "rummage". To rummage through a purse is to sleepwalk through a sentence - a small enough betrayal of self, but a betrayal all the same. To speak personally, the very reason I write is so that I might not sleepwalk through my entire life.
