Motivation Monday XII

On this President’s Day, we can say with some certainty what we should be commemorating is future lack of dependence of representative leadership. It is a strange idea to have a holiday monumentalizing the future, but it might be necessary as the present seems more and more obsolete. Perhaps, one day a maximized citizenship will eclipse concepts of hierarchy. Our Motivation Monday comes to us from Michael Hardt’s contribution to the movie Examined Life. He is amongst the leading American Theorists  and his essay deals with the philosophy of revolution. Mr. Hardt’s book Empire is a said to be “the communist manifesto” of the 21st century.  The overwhelming thematic content addresses the fallacies of revolution and what that concept means to those looking forward.
