What do the powers claim to establish?
It is important to remember, that, in order for the powers to retain power there must be an implicit altruistic motive.
In other words, the powers are powerful not simply because they are powerful (holding the most weapons, etc.), as this doesn’t work, for ‘the masses’ can at any point overthrow them (or at the very least, create chaos).
The powers are powerful precisely because they claim to bring peace and justice.
The battle is thus ideological.
Therefore the key to undermining the powers is demanding what they claim to proffer society, taking the discourse of power more seriously than the powers.
I.e. subverting the norm means radically accepting its ideological presuppositions.
