P2P Foundation's blog » Blog Archive » Problematizing and untangling the concept of ‘competition’.

Undoing and replacing belief systems can’t occur by edict or intellectual exercise; it requires the externalization of thought in action, with consequences. We are bound by the body; fail to feed it, and all thought is for naught. Only religious faith exercises similar power. No cultural change arises without spiritual change. What begins the process? Words, first. Rituals. Dichotimization (us/them). Rewards. Fear in the form of a story so engrained it is considered fact: if we don’t do this, this will occur.
