Damn, that is good stuff. Very poignant and well-written. Though writings from this tone and perspective (ultra critical, and deconstructionalist) are very important, it pains me to read stuff like this these days (though I still will, becasue it is important too).
You are right that this does sound a bit familiar...something that I might have written and/or thought years ago (however, perhaps not of this quality). However, I am in a different place now...
I want to begin focusing on the concept of "revitalization," and what de we do from here. YES, we are FUCKED...now, what do we do about it?
We can "carve the block" and make a different future...I mean collective we (not necessarily you and me...however that we, too).
