Herbert Marcuse describes that utopia is impossible due to subjective and objective factors, but the presence of these factors does not dictate that utopia will never be real. It is necessary to generate other factors that make it possible.
And what are those factors?
People invade spaces that do not belong to them and create systems that fail. Again and again. And what is left is put under the carpet... or it is thrown to a country in the global south.
It is easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of the war. The destruction and restarting are easier than the transformation of the current system.
Utopia is not a paradise, yet it is something that does not exist because there is no room in today's society to build it.
What is left to change? The individual plan or the collective plan?
As István Mészáros explains, for there to be an act of liberation, there has to be a process of liberation.
