Sample text

O~~ cracks are not pure cracks, our dignities are not pure dIgmtIes. We try to break with capitalist society, but our break st,ill bears its birthmarks. However much we try to do something dIfferent, the contradictions of capitalism reproduce themselves within our revolt. We are not pure subjects, however rebellious we might be. The cracks, both as spaces of liberation and as painful ruptures, run inside us too. These problems are probably inevitable. The purpose of the cracks is not to create a community of saints but to establish a different form of relations between people.

Money makes the world go round, as the saying has it. More precisely, the social synthesis is established through that which is expressed in money: valueY Value is what holds society together under capitalism. It is a force that nobody controls. Capitalism is composed of a huge number of independent units which produce commodities that they sell on the market. The social interconnection between people's activities is established through the sale and purchase of commodities or, in other words, through the value of the commodities, expressed through money.

We try to break the constraints of the society that oppresses us, to overflow the domination that suffocates us, to create something else. It is not a question of purity, for any crack will reproduce the cracked within it. It is a question of movement, of direction. Movement is what matters. The possibility of the cracks is in their moving. Think of occupied factories or cooperatives, for example. In isolation, the taking of a factory into workers ' control is of limited significance: all the pressures of the market will tend to impose constraints that limit the extent to which the workers can radically alter the nature of their activity within the factory or enterprise.
