Social Protest Lit.: Henrik Ibsen “Real Liberty”

Taken from “Real Liberty” by Henrik Ibsen. This piece is an excerpt is from Book V called “Revolt.” This chapter pertains to “The struggle to abolish injustice; the battle cries of the new army which is gathering for the deliverance of humanity.”

Away with the State! I will take part in that revolution. Undermine the whole conception of a state, declare free choice and spiritual kinship to be the only all-important conditions of any union, and you will have the commencement of a liberty that is worth something.

  1. Battle cry against all forms of social injustice for real liberty is not possible unless the united working class fights for abolishing “Private Property”!! #Socialism
