Sam: (Sam complains about the crime situation in the city) You know, decent people are going to have to work here and live somewhere else.
Paul: By “decent people,” you mean people who can afford to live somewhere else.
Sam: Oh Christ, you are such a bleeding-heart liberal, Paul.
Paul: My heart bleeds a little for the underprivileged, yes.
-Death Wish (1974)
The old, global power-structures are seemingly, slowly overturning, transitory transformations that create chaos, break down homes, spawn criminal gangs in the suburbia, erupt violence, inflict punishing police brutality, giving birth to poverty and hatred. But in these ruins and chaotic transformations there is also a potentiality towards new aesthetical, social, ideological and political directions that look into the horizon towards a different age, one that is uncertain and unknown, freed from the punishment of our prisoners. It is out of this contemporary chaos that we create our own new individual and collective mythologies.
