“The point of building the city, polis, as Blake’s emanative Jerusalem, which he called “liberty among men,” is not to make the citizenry equal in the sense of “interchangable,” but “Equal, That Is, to the Real Itself.” Stated thus, it looks the impossible dream, but taken methodologically it is rather one more token thrown up from the well of mind to steady itself in a time Olson called “cinematic.” It is a dogma of the “will to change” rather than change itself, which only ever occurs, if at all, in the fullness of time anyway.
– John Clarke, “Olson – the Book”
