Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the development of the Bulgarian protests that began in 2013; the author views these as a transition from a nihilistic attitude towards all the achievements of the years of democracy to the creation of new forms of sociality which, in the terminology of S. Lash, could be defined as „disorganizations“. Fundamental for the latter are values, not procedural norms or rules. The disadvantage of the Bulgarian version of disorganizations is the lack of reflexivity about their foundation.
