To Live Without Dead Time

What does it mean to you?

To Live Without Dead Time
Charles Peterson

This article is available in:

To live without dead time means to embody a great refusal, to find pleasure in struggle, to transform every moment of existence into a repudiation of the consumerist nightmare and an affirmation of revolutionary possibility. A semester, a year, a decade without Big Macs, Frappucinos and World of Warcraft but overflowing with midnight adventures of blackspotted billboards, guerrilla gardening and spectacular synchronized global memewar actions. Imagine if a huge number of us start living in this way, turning daily life itself into a form of resistance that re-enchants the city and reawakens the promise of a people’s insurrection. The way forward is through this kind of radical play.

agree with everything except with the struggle. Whatever you fight against, you make it stronger. The fight, if needed be, has to be against ourselves, not against others. The transformation is first individual, then spreads around. We will win this not by fighting, but by recreating.

Identify the enemy - capitalism is a business model, a philosophy. You are attacking values - who is the enemy who embraces these values? Who has their hand on the levers of power? Who manipulates the gold price? Who runs things?

Stop jousting with windmills - the hand has a face, that person is not alone, they are aided - who are they?

I hate reading this crap, you want fight a philosophy, a faceless person. Give them a face - call them the enemy, show us them, let's kill them, that will be the change we need.

Why only 20,000 people? You set your sights awefully low for a city of nearly 9 million - not all whom are investment bankers and hedge fund managers....
