"...when the social economy is obliged to coexist with capitalism, as it is today, the game is rigged. The logic of capital, which devours everything, drives it to crush or trivialize any alternative experience that is not comprehensive. Social economy must operate in a framework of postcapitalist transition." - Emilio Santiago Muiño

"Capitalism comes to its fullness at the moment when communism is sold as a commodity."
