the structure

Societies are not about structures, institutions, processes, systems. No longer. The very fabric of contemporary societies are “events”. Be those “scandals”, “cases” or everyday minor difficulties of “famous” people… Luhmann was wrong. So were people from complexity sciences…

It is a continuum of discontinuities. Apparently, these events are singularities in nature. They do not display any evidence of connection between them. It is a process of random series of single events without the possibility of stochastic relationship and of learning to occur within the process. In fact there is no “process”. It is more like a spontaneous bubbling. The “next event” simply takes its place in the social arena, replacing the last one, no legacy or memory is required or involved in this process. Thus, there is no time, only here and now and me…

Without these forms of life there is no life. No press, no politics, no politicians, no journalists, nothing…

It is only about being alive in some space and time and producing utterances about the last plastic surgery made to some boobs.. or about the benefits of Botox...

social agents are, mainly, football players and bimbos...
