"At this historical conjuncture of crisis, rage, and the bankruptcy of institutions, the only thing that can bring about a social revolution is the total rejection of work.  When street fighting takes place in streets dark from the strike at the Electricity Company—when clashes occur amid tons of uncollected rubbish—when trolleys and buses shut down streets to block off the police—when striking teachers light up their revolting pupils’ molotov cocktails—then we will be finally able to say: ‘Ruffians, the days of your society are numbered; we weighed its joys and justices and found them all too little.’"
