From Tunisia to Egypt, from Greece to Spain, from Turkey to Brazil, people are realising that the leaderless revolution, and therefore the leaderless society is possible. More and more they move without the dictate of the party line, more and more they are aware of the failings and horrors of our leader directed history. It is that realisation that will bring justice and freedom. All this bodes well for the future, the kettle takes a while to boil.
An interesting analysis from COUNTERPUNCH:
"-----Bowing down to the need for leaders, “an” (read, one) ideology, and a common platform would obstruct the most important line of growth for these revolutions, which is self-organization. A prerequisite for self-organization is that the outcomes cannot be predetermined as they are when we all have to toe a party line. Once most people know how to take the initiative in their own lives and put their plans into action, once the practice of self-organization intensifies to move beyond making abstract decisions, people will be able to create new social relations and collectively organize the material aspects of their lives—how to feed, clothe, house, heal, and generally provide for themselves. If this happens, leaders will be obsolete and we can begin to earnestly talk about revolution.----"
