"All of them, all those who canít adapt ñ you and I, for instance ñ will die cursing the power which they helped bring about with often enormous sacrifices. Revolution is impersonal, so it will take their lives and even use their memory as an example or as an instrument to control the young people coming after themÖyou will die with your fist clenched and your jaw tense, the perfect manifestation of hatred and struggle, because you arenít a symbol (some inanimate example), you are an authentic member of the society to be destroyed; the spirit of the beehive speaks through your mouth and moves through your actions. You are as useful as I am, but you donít realize how useful your contribution is to the society that sacrifices you."
