The Savage Peace by Sasha Durakov

6.00

Democracy has failed. The institutions we were supposed to believe in are falling into ruin all around us. Everywhere we look, exceptions to the law replace its normal application. Global civil war is becoming the new normal, and the police, developers, teachers, and politicians are doing everything in their power to prevent this fact from becoming known. Since the beginning of the West, there have been two parallel stories: one is the story of democracy progressing since its glorious founding in Ancient Athens, the other is the story of the wreckage it has left behind, which goes by the name of Civil War.

In The Savage Peace, Sasha Durakov outlines a hidden paradigm for political action in the ancient concept of civil war, which has consistently been seen as a threat to the democratic order. By viewing history through the lens of civil war, new fault lines appear: neither the progression of a rational idea nor the opposition of two symmetrical and binary forces, but between dispositions that foster order, and those that expose difference.
