We share a common objective universe in which we live and struggle to meet our human needs, raise our families, love and care for friends.
We each develop a unique and subjective interpretation of our experience of this objective universe; an interpretation which can either encompass the peoples with whom we share this time on earth, embracing forgiveness, understanding, and shared struggle toward a common goal, or isolate us from each other with fear and misunderstanding, exploitation and oppression.
The materialist doctrine concerning the changing of circumstances and upbringing forgets that circumstances are changed by men and that it is essential to educate the educator himself. This doctrine must, therefore, divide society into two parts, one of which is superior to society.
The coincidence of the changing of circumstances and of human activity or self-changing can be conceived and rationally understood only as revolutionary practice.
