Spending the day with Foucault

“It seems to me that the real political task in a society such as ours is to criticize the  working of institutions which appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticize them in such a manner that the political violence which has always exercised itself obscurely through them will be unmasked, so that one can fight them.”

– Michel Foucault, Human Nature, pg. 171
