The following is from Ch. 2 of Revolution of the Dialectic:


We must be sincere with our selves and dissect the ā€˜Iā€™ with the tremendous scalpel of “self-criticism”. It is absurd to criticize the errors of others; what is fundamental is to discover our own errors and then disintegrate them on the basis of analysis and profound comprehension.

It is only possible to act collectively when each individual is capable of acting individually with complete and absolute consciousness of what is being done.

The systems of the Revolution of the Dialectic will seem very lengthy to impatient people. However, another way does not exist. Those who want fast and immediate changes in the psychological and social order are the ones who create rigid norms and dictatorships of the mind. They do not yearn for others to know how to think, instead they dictate what has to be thought.

Every abrupt change defrauds its own objective and man becomes a victim once again of that which he struggled against. All the causes of the failure of any organization exist here, within ourselves.
