This should come as no surprise. The liberal-democratic system is designed to objectify, externalize, and quantify. Much of its power resides in the cheapening everything via volume. Its totalitarianism rests upon making a spectacular show of crushing quality and the subject under an avalanche of objects.
A basic but effective form of resistance is the reversal of these dichotomies in our thinking. When you extol the subject over the object, you essentially extol beings over things. When you revere the internal over the external, you revere the spirit permeating the material. When you esteem quality over quantity, you esteem genius over mass.
This resistance, these shifts in thinking, may seem insignificant on the surface, but its impact certainly resounds in the depths, which is where meaningful change starts and true purpose begins.
