The world as we wish it to be is no mere fantasy. We have been offered science fiction-like descriptions of technology that can create a clean, sustainable environment for the whole biosphere that can satisfy the reasonable needs of all. This isn’t simply a fantasy: the technology already exists.
We won’t stop shouting from the rooftops about everything that’s is wrong.
"The weapon of criticism cannot, of course," Marx wrote in 1844, "replace criticism by weapons, material force must be overthrown by material force; but theory also becomes a material force as soon as it has gripped the masses." A revolution in thought must precede a revolution in deed.
We are now witnessing people around the world becoming more and more aware of their real needs.
"No class of civil society can play this role," Marx says, "without arousing a moment of enthusiasm in itself and in the masses, a moment in which it fraternizes and merges with society in general, becomes confused with it and is perceived and acknowledged as its general representative; a moment in which its demands and rights are truly the rights and demands of society itself; a moment in which it is truly the social head and social heart."
The new day of a full fledged socialist revolution, demanding the abolition of private property, freeing humanity from exploitation and oppression draws closer and we should be minded that it is always darkest before the dawn.
Hearts of Glory
I dreamt a dream of ancient times
when hearts were filled with glory
and everyone was living in sweeet simplicity
Pray it's not a fable
Pray the day will come
When to live like this in Eden's bliss
will be reality
