    to say that contemporary power to make a difference (that makes a difference if you will) lies at the level/scale/leverage of the state has nothing to do with a kind of absolute (physics or metaphysics) determinism and isn’t at all opposed to change, see Jodi Dean on the need for communist parties (and not mark fisher dance parties), now is the world too complex (the reach of our tech too powerful, our problems too “wicked”etc) to manage even at the level of the state, sure most likely.
