Althusser on Purchasing

“I now feel I know for certain that one is not really alive unless one spends, takes risks, and therefore has surprises, and that surprises & spending (freely rather than for profit, which is the only possible definition for communism) are not simply a part of all life but constitute the ultimate truth of life itself, in its Ereignis, its surging forth, its very happening, as Heidegger has argued so well.”


~Althusser – The Future Lasts A Long Time, pg. 107
