First, it suggests the failures of transforming social, cultural, religious and other expectations and perspectives within communities at least marginally caught up in the flows of globalizing radical unity.Second, it suggests the failures of global vanguards (whatever their ideological foundations) to effectively rupture the foundations of the social and cultural organizations that feed into traditional divisions and the hierarchies of power and place that these produce (expressed in a variety of guises depending on context--racism, ethno-cultural chauvinism, caste, etc.).Third, it suggests the radical transformation of traditional societal organization in response to not yet successful efforts to undermine and replace the premises, structures and operations of traditional societal organization and premises. Traditional society is changed under conditions of change and either becomes ossified (museum cultures that serve as cultural-political organizing and disciplinary mechanics; e.g., Not a Zookeeper's Culture).And fourth, it suggests a radical globalization of rupture--as insular communities develop transnational unifying and institutional structures that reject the efforts of local representatives of radical unity to undermine and transform their traditional structures and world views. Global solidarity grounded in indigenous, racial, religious or other differentiating communities across national borders provides the template.
12. Violence marks radical separation, as it marks radical unity. But it also marks a rejectionism that would re-arrange global orders to suit its own hierarchies of value and of the placement (or displacement) of communities (formed or reformed to suit the taste for unity or rupture). It is unlikely that these acts of sacrifice will disappear soon. It is also unlikely that groups will cease to find value in the offering of the blood of others to satiate their own lusts.
13. What this suggests in the age of the radical--the radical leader, the radical community, the radical society, the radical culture, the radical economy, the radical solution--is inevitability of the restructuring of compatible communities. These communities impose order vertically, but owe loyalties and share common cultures and objectives horizontally. It took a global network of "deplorables," of individuals with citizenship in a variety of locations of convenience, to move forward a project of radical expulsion of other global communities, and in the process of rejecting radical unity under the ideologies (social, political, cultural, etc.) of global governing elites. And it will fall to a global network of vanguard actors to bring order--though that becomes more difficult as that elite is caught in webs of its own principles.
14. And the object of all of this activity--the hearts and minds of communities of the masses, in the service of which others will continue to be sacrificed. The structures of globalization, and of the fracture that unity has brought, makes it unlikely that individuals will no longer be sacrificed to the abstract deities that create or protect self-reflexive communities that cultivate perceptions of threat, or construct opportunities through threat. It is not clear that there is any way out of this box without reconstituting the box.
