Make your revolution yourselves in your neighbourhoods, in your places of work. In this sense the victory of the Liberal party is in fact nothing but the victory of the Simard-Cotroni election- fixers.

Manifewto are terrorized by the Roman Capitalist Church, though this is less and less true today who owns the square where the Stock Exchange was built?
