And that's more than enough. Nobody goes to war only by consideration of current misery and oppression. The calculation is always more subtle: somebody goes or does not go to war according to his expectations of a better life after going or not going. And the crucial question then is: why the poor have a reason to choose the risky road of revolution with its failure so widely publicized and riveting, if it is always possible to wait for a gift, for some improvement in the current situation? You may prove a thousand times that the excluded, marginalized, are less and less likely to have their expectations met, but the theoretical demonstration is not enough: once and again they will fall in the space of alienation that media and the objective consumption of the integrated can create in the very foundations of the psychic apparatus of the poorest.
