Don't let your memes be dreams" shown below. Within 48 hours, the post gained over 16, likes. In the coming days, articles about the video were published by BoingBoing  and Manchester Evening News.
In the talk, Arato discusses the story of his life as a "meme-hero," as well as his career as an electrical engineer in Ukraine. His story begins with a vacation in Turkey, where a photograph of him was taken.
After uploading the photograph to Facebook, a professional photographer contacted Arato regarding modeling, inviting him to a trial shooting.
Both were happy with the results and continue to work together, resulting in a "couple hundred" stock photographs. Several months later, Arato began finding the photographs used in a variety of other contexts, outside of the stock photographs he agreed to.
He stated that closing down a webpage would not really work, as the meme content could soon respawn, so after six years, he accepted his meme status.
He hoped that everyone would forget about using his photos, but that didn't happen. He still thought that everyone would forget about the photos, but an internet user found out his true identity and emailed him, stating that there were many users who believed that he was not a real living person.
After a few hours, the photo has been seen by over ten thousand users as well as the international media. The photographer who took the stock photos asked him to smile.
Many users saw his smile as fake, masking sorrow, hence the name "Hide the Pain Harold". In the photos, he stated he got tired of smiling too much.
For Arato, this new focus on civil society constituted, in part, a rejection of the traditional Marxian problematic for a post-Marxist one.
He and intellectuals in Eastern Europe criticized Marx's advocacy of a radical democratic reunification of state and society in a supposedly collective free social order.
They rejected Marx's idea of ending of the distinction of state and society or state and market , along with his conception of an unalienated collective subject, totally undivided and in control of itself.
The experience of Eastern Europe and Russia suggested this utopian merging of government and society inevitably resulted in authoritarian forms of rule.
It resulted either in the loss of independent freedom of civil society under the embracing control of the party-state or else it saw regression in economic rationality as the community or state subjected the economy to their traditional norms and political calculations.
Instead, partly for normative reasons and partly for strategic reasons to prevent repression from the state or USSR invasion , opposition movements in Eastern Europe and throughout the world sought not to take over the government but only to strengthen the forms of freedom in a modern civil society, that is, forms of solidarity, free communicative interaction, and active democratic participation in autonomous publics and a plurality of associations.
The goal—Arato argued for Eastern Europe, but soon extended this model to the West—should be the protection and indeed the strengthening of civil society and its democratization and institution building separate from the strategic instrumental logics and power hierarchies of the state and capitalist economy.
In the late s into the s and beyond, the problematic of civil society spread across Europe, Latin American and Asia as a powerful theory and ideal that could guide social movements in obtainable advances in freedom.
Here too Arato drew heavily on the work of Habermas, especially Habermas's book on the rise and decline of the public sphere. With this three-part model of ideal social organization — state, economy and civil society — Arato could make the idea of civil society and its strengthening a critical tool in Western capitalist societies.
Between his initial and articles on Poland and civil society, a full decade passed before he and Jean Cohen issued their magnum opus: Civil Society and Political Theory.
Despite its late publication and its intimidating size at pages, the volume quickly became popular. In October , Google Scholar listed over 2, publications citing the book.
During this time, Arato remained associated with the radical journal Telos. However, the relevance and vitality of the category of civil society for the West became an object for vigorous dispute at Telos , most especially by Paul Piccone , the journal's pugnacious editor.
The unique nature of the transitions and the powerful intellectual and political issues of writing a new constitution soon became Arato's prime target of intellectual investigation.
He closely followed the political debate surrounding the drafting of constitutions in Hungary, where he maintained continued with such critical intellectuals as Janos Kis, co-founder and first chair of the Alliance of Free Democrats, Hungary's liberal party until In —97, Arato served as a consultant for the Hungarian Parliament on constitutional issues.
In the ensuing years, he published commentary and analysis of constitutional issues in Nepal, Turkey, South Africa and Iraq after the U. Were you concerned at all about revealing your identity, or was it more intriguing to you by that point?
