      "There exists a scholastic and academic historico-political outlook
      which sees as real and worthwhile only such movements of revolt as
      are one hundred per cent conscious, ie, movements that are governed
      by plans worked out to the last detail or in line with abstract
      theory (which comes to the same thing). But reality produces a wealth
      of the most bizarre combinations. It is up to the theoretician to
      unravel these in order to ... `translate' into theoretical langauge
      the elements of historical life. It is not reality which should be
      expected to conform to the abstract schema. This will never happen
      and hence this conception is nothing but an expression of passivity."
