One of the greatest revolutionary hurdles will be normalizing the discomfort of unlearning. We've learned to live with and enact so many endless expressions of oppression, and the process of identifying, isolating, reflecting on, and dismantling those impulses is very, very long under the best of conditions.
@mkb patrician and infantilizing because it tends to assume that today we're advanced and complex and have fancy things like theory, but in the past we were simple, unconcerned with the abstract, and lived without giving it any thought.
It's like a kind of modern exceptionalism that condescends to the past and denies it complexity, imo.
Makes sense. Thanks for clarifying!
