Dissent

http://www.benetvision.org/Ideas_In_Passing/03_11_13.html

  • Dissent comes out of the depth of the heart and exists only in service to what both sides say that they are each committed to preserving.
  • out of a soul in anguish over life that must be bartered in the process of saving it.
  • always has a place and a time and a face we do not expect to see in this place and at this time.
  • The problem is that both sides define their one same loyalty differently. The establishment is always loyal to the very institutionalism of the institution in question. The dissenter is always most loyal instead to what the institution itself claims to be about.
  • ¬†loneliness is at the very heart of dissent
  • Loneliness is its character and isolation is its cost
  • the few who hold out against total dissolution of the highest ideals of any institution.
