The Logic of Not Demanding

"We don’t tell them what we want because they already know what we want: We want their system to die. Why make demands of the thing you want to destroy? Negotiating only grants legitimacy and continuity."


  1. Good question. The quote is Kalle Lasn, reworked from a commentary by A.G. Schwartz. The photo is from Reagan Hackleman at Occupy Austin

  2. I don't know. There should be a shopping list of at least a dozen immediate demands, but 40-50 elucidated demands (not slogans) that cover a variety of issue areas is what we should aim at.
