Sabry, Tarik. “Revolutions in the age of ‘globalization’: Between the trans-temporal and the trans-subjective.” Media, Culture & Society 35 (2013): 21-26. (5) Tarik Sabry’s opening statement in his piece “Revolution in the age of ‘globalization’: Between the trans-temporal and the trans-subjective” sets the stage, most uniquely, as he questions who really makes history?199 The emerging and quickly advancing global nature of the communication field is critical in this question, as now more than ever, information exchange is at a radical speed and communication interface is reaching a reality which is widespread. The role of global media technology, social media included, is an advancement which is playing critical roles in social movements throughout the world, and more and more inspiring sub-movements through these realities, such as hashtag revolutions. Though Sabry stays true in examining the revolutions of a global reality, referencing such movements as the Arab Spring, there is still weight in his arguments and they are easily relatable to those of the United States, as many a technique are similar.200 A prominent proponent in his piece, as explained through Arab movements but applicable to global ones, is the complexity of these revolutions and the overlap in socio-cultural and political realities.201 Sabry’s piece is complex in and of itself, implementing the ultimate nature of foreboding thought, but in a way which might just be critical to understanding the necessity of these movements. Ultimately, if he were to merely spell out the nature of these movements without emphasizing their importance through his choice of execution, the effect would not be as urgent as it should be.
