Just a fun graphic that evokes the autonomist idea of refusal/withdrawal.

I couldn’t resist making it plural and non-definite in English.  (Also: people only ignore their power sometimes.)

    • It may be that you are getting at the problem that the demos always has a demas. When the demos (or la gente, or the people) acts, it is rarely if ever everyone acting together, there is always a remainder, some others who are not acting. The empty space of democracy, as Lefort put it…

      • Demos/demás. hehe, nice. Yeah, I guess I’m just uncomfortable with how ‘refusal/withdrawal’ sometimes seems like: “Later. Too bad for the rest of you suckers.”
