A revolutionary is, of course, someone who wants to overthrow the existing order. We need such people. The current order is unsustainable. It is destroying the planet and creating inequality so severely that society is becoming unstable. It's an engine for human misery on a massive scale.

Three things separate a revolutionary from most other human beings of conscience. The first is knowledge—specifically, knowledge of the many harms our current system inflicts on other beings and on the planet.

We don't have the historical, scientific, moral, or spiritual context to see that these destructive forces are created by people—which means that people can end them.

The second is context. We assume that the world we see in the world as it has always been and always will be. Capitalism, which has only existed for three or four centuries, is considered as immutable as the Laws of Thermodynamics. Warfare, a phenomenon that ebbs and flows, is considered a basic part of human nature. Roles of class, race, gender, and sexual expression are considered fixed when they have evolved and shifted over time.

We don't have the historical, scientific, moral, or spiritual context to see that these destructive forces are created by people—which means that people can end them. Anthropologist David Graeber is quoted in the new Adam Curtis documentary series: “The ultimate hidden truth of the world is that it is just something we make, and could just as easily make something different.”
