Capitalism After Corona Lockdown: Having the Power to Walk Away

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:12

To enter into this fight against the elites from the starting point that we can’t leave their society and can’t stand to die fighting for something just and dignified, means we have already surrendered. Like Mowgli, men enter into society and labor within its confines surrendering freedom, and in exchange have access to security and the possibility for a family that can enjoy that inclusion and security.

If society has successfully gas-lit us into thinking that it’s we who wanted and needed society, and not the other way around, then we have already lost. To win the fight against their version of a ‘4thIndustrial Revolution’, means knowing first and foremost that we don’t need most of what society today has to offer, and would rather die free than live as slaves. That’s the power to walk away.
