«Detroit», by Diego de Rivera

Empiricism and mechanicism served as the basis for the great political and social apparatuses of capitalism, today completely obsolete, rigid and incapable of guaranteeing a future for workers and humanity.

Both were and are partial visions of the maximum possibilities offered to Humanity... possibilities that can only begin to take shape by bringing together a Humanity divided into classes.
