“The change towards new politics can only be implemented by us, the people who are aware that we have the power, that we are the only possible political entity and that we have the responsibility for political actions and political changes in the world.
The dominant understanding that parliamentarism is the only possible way of doing politics should, could and can be changed: self-organized, autonomous grassroots groups, collectives and initiatives have proven that through the long history of struggle within the dominant system. New politics has an important goal, namely to face the dominant state of “capitalo – parliamentarism” or the “all-too-objectivist apparatus of the market economy and the electoral ritual with sense” as A. Badiou put it, and to pull people out of passivation, lethargy and depression. Real politics should be able to find ways for reinvention of the political engagement starting from the local level to all the levels of society.
People are political beings and new political structures, new political methodologies and new political discipline have to be invented in order for people to act politically more than once every four years come election day.” (‘Imaginaries of New Politics’, Lana Zdravković)
