Interrogate the Form and summon it again
The revolutionary duty is to separate form from content(Rebuilding the form), a form that has no compromise with the content and content that does not see any similarity with the form.
This factor may not necessarily lead to a revolution and can be ignored like any other undeniable reality. However, emphasizing this factor emphasizes the importance of form, and the project of revolution begins.
So the path of revolution, whether in our personal lives or in political dimensions, arises from this factor, such as when a content called the concept of people does not see any similarity with the existing political form, or when we experience the destruction of a romantic relationship.
So when this disconnection occurs, we can either ignore it, and the consequences of this neglect will be severe, or we can take action, and the only solution is to return to the form.
How to rebuild the form
But rebuilding the form takes two forms: first, revisiting the previous form through reasoning, and second, calling back the form to its formless content.
In our romantic example, we revisit the entire past and create a new form suitable for the new person we are, and every moment we call back the form, it is dynamic and alive, not static and sorrowful.
So rebuilding the form will transform the pre-existing content, and the formless content demands the return of the form, even if it means changing it
However, the problem arises when a part of the previous content remains outside the new form and never accepts the new form, or the new form does not open a place for it. This is when the day after victory is not equal to filling the gap, but the day after creating
a new gap and the pain of failure always remains, known as nostalgia.
