Should we await le Grand Soir – the climactic "great night" of revolution? Or re-organise other common worlds in the here and now, making visible the capacities and intelligence of all those who live in them?
There is a famous line in Lenin saying that "without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement." That is a very profound phrase. Theory serves for two things: to join together struggles that are apparently unrelated, and also as a compass in periods of crisis. It is what tells you whether in this precise moment you should be smashing up banks or standing in elections.
