The Crisis of German Social Democracy (1915) “Socialism is the first popular movement in world history that has set itself the goal of bringing human consciousness, and thereby free will, into play in the social actions of mankind. . . . The victory of socialism will not descend from heaven. The international proletariat . . . will take the tiller of social life and become the pilot to the goal of its own history.”

— Rosa Luxemburg, “The Crisis of German Social Democracy” (1915)
