I see no reason the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
So goes the rhyme that commemorates the actions of Guy Fawkes, who attempted to blow up Parliament in 1605. Fawkes was part of a radical Catholic group, that were seeking to displace Protestant rule. In England, bonfires are lit on November 5th, and Guy Fawkes is still burnt in effigy, four hundred plus years after the original attempt.
As social change activists, I think that one of our biggest challenges is not recreating the oppressive structures in the new world we make together. How do we utterly change the dynamic of hierarchy and oppression, leaving them behind in the world falling around us?
Listeners called in with their experiences of engaging social change, and thoughts on creating the new world together. There is a lot to say on this subject, so let's continue this discussion online! Read my blog here, and participate in the conversation by leaving your comments.
