Jacques Rancière: “Democracy, Equality, Emancipation in a Changing World”

“A free social space … is a space where assemblies can practice forms of direct democracy intended … to make collective decisions on concrete matters. In such a way a form of political action tends to be at the same time the cell of another form of life. It is no longer a tool for preparing a future emancipation but a process of invention of forms of life and modes of thinking in which equality furthers equality.”

Robert Maggiori: “Rancière: Democracies on the move”

‘Should we await le Grand Soir – the climactic “great night” of revolution? Or re-organise other common worlds in the here and now, making visible the capacities and intelligence of all those who live in them?’
