Citizens of Deviantart it is I Party9999999 your ruler, hear me and obey!
Oh sorry that's conservatoons.
Sorry I haven't written anything for a while, I've had a stab at a few things but none them came to anything so I've gone back to something I've been meaning to cover the Radical rupture.
For those who don't know the Radical Rupture in politics is an action or actions a person undertakes to break with society and cement their place as a revolutionary and to prove that they are dedicated to changing the system of government.
Now this is more than simply an act of rebellion, it has to be something that upsets society's view of you that There is no going back after you have done it.
While all revolutions have some form of a radical rupture, one of the best known example comes from the time just before the Chinese revolution of 1911, it was simple action but none the less very meaningful, the cutting of the queue.
Under the Qing Dynasty all Chinese men had have their hair braided into a long ponytail failure to do so would mean execution. As a result the queue became a symbol of the Chinese people's submission to the Qing Imperial court.
As the Qing government weaken in the early years of the 20th century those Chinese willing to stand against it would cut their queue and they would do in public making a show of it to prove their dedication to overthrowing the Qing court.
Our radical rupture must be just as meaningful, but we have yet to find something that truly puts us outside the social nom forever.
The hippie movement for example was an easy to join and easy to quit movement, You could grow your hair long and live on a commune and protest against the system for a few years, but at the same time but you could undo those actions and return to society.
In a way my Republicanism could be seen as a radical rupture, going against the Monarchy in Britain is something few people do openly but at the same time it's something I could easily undo.
So I put to you, good reader. What do you think our radical rupture should be and remember it has to be something we can never come back from.
