Tommy's which revolution is really Heidegger's how the revolution
- The question is which revolution. In the idea of Sartre, the response is it depends on your freedom of choice. In the idea of Heidegger, the response depends on your potential, projecting possibility and in this case it becomes one of how the revolution and not which revolution. My feeling is the deeper and more evolving question is the how the revolution and not the Tommy version of which revolution. Carrying this a step into getting out of nihilism and the which revolution is nihilism, is to consider Nietzsche. He's the revolution in he gives us the support to a [a] consider atheism, [b] homosexuality, [c] Marxism, [d] getting back to the primordial state of Being, [e] how the use of art as escapism from nihilism isn't a good choice. Nietzsche touches on insanity, surrealism, and anarchy in his sense of rapture and it enables one to deal with the which revolution and the how the revolution potential, projecting possibilities at the same time and space. Nietzsche is quite well aware of Heidegger's concept of time as Heidegger lifts it from Nietzsche at least as one source. The which revolution doesn't take into consideration Heidegger's concern with time and this is a major defect in the philosophy of both Tommy and Decker. However, if one supports the genocide and the omnicide of Ariel Sharon, or the mass weapons of destruction at one billion dollars a day of George Bush, or makes the choice to live under a Queen such as in the United Kingdom the ability to answer the which question or the how question I think is rather difficult. Chairman Mao of the great philosophers does a good job at asking and answering the how the revolution. Of course, many people betray Mao, the revolution, and China, and many of these people are now millionaires living in the United States coming from China. Many are wealthy Chinese still living in China.
