: : :Is the term "REVOLT" actually the best choice of term?

: yes, I think it is a good term.... thought I don't fully agree with what Kristeva does...
: but she gives a very interesting history of this word.... (from revolvere... from turning.... what allows her to appropriate this by now political concept for psychoanalytical ends ... sometimes too much

she doesn't really address violence or a more structural
application of violence and force for a change
(take into consideration that there is the model of
the revolution: unfortunately, she doen't give too much
attention to the problem of revolution as a
more coordinated way of social revolt

and of course, when violence comes into the game or the discussion
we feel rather ambivalent... at least I do.... -

(unfortunately it is daily business around the globe...
in very few cases it is the "right use of violence and revolt" as I could
may be agree to it...
