Ummm... I didn't say that. I was talking about DEMOCRACY. The process must have a intention and commitment towards resolution. Whether there will always be conflict and problems is irrelevant.quote:I do not think that there will ever be a end to struggle.
The point is what is the point to Democracy.
It has no virtue when and if it doesn't and won't even commit to resolution. What good is it then when it won't?
I said:quote:Liberation, justice, freedom, are goals, but I do not think that we will every fully realize them.
Whether you call it an Ultimate Resolution, whether an ultimate one is achieved...
AKA "may never be fully realized" but PROGRESS and a clear, focused and intentional PROCESS towards that Goal (aka that "END") is a conscious and firm commitment.
And I say that has little to do with the PROCESS of DEMOCRACY or an earnest answer to my question.quote:I would assert that there is value in the struggle
I've asked what is the purpose of all this Democracy "mess". What? Just to be messy?quote:I do not believe that democracy is a state of affairs. It is a process, dynamic, dialogical, agonistic, and messy.
You talk about struggle... The CRM was about achieving or progressing to resolution. Was there "value" in that struggle worth talking about without that resolution?
