Up till now, a socialist revolution hasn't succeeded yet, because

Ø the socialist movement was split at the beginning of the last century into those striving for a bourgeois society and those striving for a dignified human life.

Ø the theoretical foundation came from the bourgeois society and not from the oppressed.

Ø economically the revolution is overdue, but the subject of the revolution is missing.

The subject of a socialist revolution or the sane character in an insane society looks like this:

Ø I am entitled for a dignified human life without service rendered beforehand.

Ø After I've slept well and had a good breakfast, I need to be useful to the people next to me.

Ø I live in the companionship of about 300 people, providing and organising themselves.

Ø I've only sensuous needs, and so they are limited.

Ø I live by my identity, not by some identification.

Ø I enjoy life.

Ø I love simple things.

Ø Small is beautiful.

Ø I feel part of nature.

Ø Money is ephemeral.
