An historical rupture?

The amazing thing about all this is that it’s totally spontaneous; it can’t be, couldn’t have been, orchestrated by a mad and hideous conspiracy. It has the moral clarity and historical certainty –the pure bliss — of an impossible dream. Those who read Gramsci for critical insight will call it a caesura, this uncoordinated but synchronized movement of people that we all hope, is already the tipping point.
