Change Does Not Come from Revolutions or Social Movements

  • Revolutions and social movements are about changing who is supposed to be good and who is supposed to be bad.
  • Changing the categories for games does not change the games.
  • Changing the names of games does not change the games.
  • Change requires an end to games.
  • One way to end games is to provide a new structure for relationships and power.
  • An example of a new way to relate can be found in How to Govern Anything.

“So-called revolutions and social movements are based on enforcing new categories of good and bad self-constructions. No fundamental changes are made to the social games or structure of human relationships.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice
