    A Global Fallacy and the Military Intervention in Egypt

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2013
    When movements don't have (or claim not to have) ideologies, agendas, demands and leaders, they can go in two directions: they can dissipate (as did Occupy), or serve the agendas of others.

But it spells the end of the fallacy that the people can take power without an agenda, an alternative platform, an ideology, and leaders.

    Disobedience

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 2017
    Ultimately all power structures depend on the obedience of those over whom they rule. It helps if people believe in the legitimacy of those who wield power, but the crucial thing is obedience. Once people start to disobey in significant numbers, the dynamic of power changes fundamentally. Disobedience, especially on a large scale, shakes the power of the rulers, and increases the power of those who disobey. Disobedience is the theme of this issue.
