I’ve turned into a dirt jump fiend this summer; when I return to Montreal no one will recognize me. Thanks Whistler.

11:49"In their different ways, both totalitarianism and liberalism seek to establish consensus, the one by eradicating opposition and the other by negotiating with it. This project, in the view of Jean­ Francois Lyotard, is itself mistaken. What we need if things are to get better, he argues, is not consensus, but dissension. The commitment to consensus promotes a bland centrism, appoints the compromise candidate that no one really wants, satisfies nobody, and leaves things much as they are. Conversely, intellectual difference, inventiveness, lateral thinking, heterogeneity all promote modifications of the existing rules and conventions. Dissension challenges the status quo." — Catherine Belsey (Poststructuralism: A Very Short Introduction)
