Revolution will move forward until consolidation is total


Tyranny Unmasked, Antonio Gramsci


“. . . the revolutionary fire is spreading, scorching new hearts and minds, turning them into glowing torches of new light, new flames, devouring all laziness and fatigue. The revolution will move forward until its consolidation is total. ”


Source: Antonio Gramsci, The Russian Maximalists,  Il Grido del Popolo, 28 July 1917, translated by Quintin Hoare. Antonio Gramsci (22 January 1891 – 27 April 1937) was an Italian writer, politician, political theorist, sociologist, and linguist. He was a founding member and onetime leader of the Communist Party of Italy and was imprisoned by Benito Mussolini’s Fascist regime.

Gramsci was one of the most important Marxist thinkers in the 20th century. His writings are heavily concerned with the analysis of culture and political leadership and he is notable as a highly original thinker within modern European thought. He is renowned for his concept of cultural hegemony as a means of maintaining the state in a capitalist society.
