Rosa Luxemburg

Rosa Luxemburg

was a Marxist theorist, philosopher, economist and activist of Polish Jewish descent who became a naturalized German citizen
Without general elections, without unrestricted freedom of press and assembly, without a free struggle of opinion, life dies out in every public institution, becomes a mere semblance of life, in which only the bureaucracy remains as the active element. Public life gradually falls asleep, a few dozen party leaders of inexhaustible energy and boundless experience direct and rule. Such conditions must inevitably cause a brutalization of public life: attempted assassinations, shootings of hostages, etc.More Rosa Luxemburg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most revolutionary thing one can do is always to proclaim loudly what is happening.More Rosa Luxemburg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
History is the only true teacher, the revolution the best school for the proletariat.More Rosa Luxemburg quotes [02/25/2008 12:02:00]
On the one hand, we have the mass; on the other, its historic goal, located outside of existing society. On one hand we have the day-to-day struggle; on the other, the socialist revolution… It follows that this movement can best advance by tacking betwixt and between the two dangers… One is the loss of its mass character, the other the abandonment of its goal. One is the danger of sinking back to the condition of a sect; the other, the danger of becoming a movement of bourgeois social reform.More Rosa Luxemburg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What do you want with these special Jewish pains? I feel as close to the wretched victims of the rubber plantations in Putamayo and the blacks of Africa with whose bodies the Europeans play ball… I have no special corner in my heart for the ghetto: I am at home in the entire world, where there are clouds and birds and human tears.More Rosa Luxemburg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
