Example text

The step from mere survival in a system to life must be made if the revolutionary project is to be worthwhile. Man's attempt to organize his own life must this time not be thwarted. Life, not survival - self-management, not subjugation must be the goal or there is no revolution. Carol Verlaan the Sexual Revolution Wilhelm Reich (1935,1944) The social concepts of the 19th cent. with their purely economic definitions, no longer apply to the ideological stratification we see in the cultural struggles of the 20th cent.

What American democracy means. For this reason we are absolutely - I repeat absolutely opposed to the drafting of young people of any nationality who are oppressed like us. If we are to fight we will fight - but in our own country. to liberate our people. We have only one answer to the draft: Hell No! We who stand with the poor of the earth, must unite.

Unless revolutionary ideology recognizes the fact that this is its main concrete content it remains empty talk. in conflict with the real facts.
