“I am very familiar with the treacle of moderation and middle courses which enmesh revolutionary gestures. I am not an ex of 1977. When I was twelve, I lived in an isolated, barren countryside that was being buried in cement warehouses. I am a walking contradiction. I say no to class culture but I am its offspring. From this uncomfortable position, I looked at the 1970s, a hinge decade for the capitalistic West, the end of the post-war cycle of expansion, dominated by strong social conflict and an unshakable power of imagination.”
