“We must, then, understand the infinite creativity of the masses not as an empirical fact, but as a political determination: the infinite creative power of the masses is determined as the knotting together of the revolution with communism.

The role of the class organization is to make this infinite creative power live by serving as a processing plant for partial forms of mass organization and ideas that emerge in class situations. It is not to dream up unprecedented forms of class struggle. In carrying out its role, the class organization must deploy a series of weapons—social investigation, actions, meetings, proposals, summations—in order to systematize the forms of struggle already at work in the mass movement. In this limited but powerful arsenal, the decisive weapon is the summation.”
