All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist (...) but almost all say that such is not the case now.

Giwrgos Skourtis, Ekpoiisi
All social life is essentially practical. All mysteries which lead theory to mysticism find their rational solution in human practice and in comprehension of this practice.
Karl Marx, Theses on Feuerbach
But how did they become pioneers? Certainly not without very bitter struggles, extremely difficult debates.
Walter Benjamin, The Author As Producer
Self-emancipation in our time is emancipation from the material bases of an inverted truth. This 'historic mission to establish truth in the world' can be carried out neither by the isolated individual nor by atomized and manipulated masses, but - only and always- by that class which is able to effect the dissolution of all classes, subjecting all power to the disalienating form of a realized democracy - to councils in which practical theory exercises control over itself and surveys its own action. It cannot be carried out, in other words, until individuals are 'directly bound to universal history'; until dialogue has taken up arms to impose its conditions upon the world.
Guy Debord, The Society Of The Spectacle
Faced with the invasion of the spectacle, we can still contemplate the rebellious potentialities that the imaginary might resuscitate in our innermost depths.
Julia Kristeva, Intimate Revolt
