Anti-politics is a new type of politics because it is not about the capture of state power; it is the politics of those "who do not want to be politicians and don’t want to share power; it is a counter power that cannot take power and does not wish to. Power it has already, here and now, by reason of its moral and cultural weight..."
Of course, I am small before the great, weak before the powerful, cowardly before the violent, wavering before the aggressive, expendable before IT, which is so vast and durable that I sometimes think it is immortal. I don’t turn the other cheek to it. I don’t shoot with a slingshot; I look, and then I collect my words.
