Force is the only solution open to capital; the accumulation of capital, seen as an historical process, employs force as a permanent weapon, not only at its genesis, but further on down to the present day.
Rosa Luxemburg

It’s OK to #resistcapitalism on an iPhone. The feudal lord who owned the pitchforks the peasants killed him with prob observed the irony too.

The making of the working class has always been a violent process. Peasants cling tenaciously to their land. Artisans treasure the freedom and dignity of independent craftwork. To create an industrial proletariat, it was necessary to separate the producers from the means of production. The history of capitalism is therefore a history of eviction, dispossession, and impoverishment.

It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts.
Buenaventura Durruti

Repetition, according to Hegel, plays a crucial role in history: when something happens just once, it may be dismissed as an accident, something that might have been avoided if the situation had been handled differently; but when the same event repeats itself, it is a sign that a deeper historical process is unfolding.

In the present state of history, all political writing can only confirm a police-universe, just as all intellectual writing can only produce para-literature which does not dare any longer to tell its name.

Nobody in history has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.
