Example text

As a satellite uses the gravity of a planet to launch further in space. Central to the use of a line of flight is thus the gravity of a system - the oppressive force of subjection is also the potency for liberation. This force is an operator beyond the point of departure: The hacks offered Kaplan, A. (1996) The Development Practitioners’ Handbook. London: Pluto, page 74. org/order_interbeing 64 65 58 59 in the examples before are not based on dialectical opposition but of modulating forces and flows.

We have to create a new platform and jump over the dead body of the political left and right, that battlefield is passé. It’s not selling out, it’s facing facts. There are many of us that live beyond left and right. We are visionaries starting activist-businesses. That’s the cutting edge of politics. 34 The promotion of ‘activist-businesses’ is an increasingly dominant theme in the activities of Adbusters, which now describes itself as ‘a loose global network of artists, activists, writers, students, educators and entrepreneurs’.

An Energizing Activity Hacking is in a dialogic form, not in dialectic opposition. Not to operate with its object as an opponent or foe, but as a field of gravity. Not regarding a system of belief as opium, but as a path of liberation, using it as trampoline, as a line of flight and force of gravity. This central inverse force is also the one to ally with and use for ejecting a downward spiral and instead use it to shoot out of a system.
