The Real Political Task in Our Contemporary Society 

Michel Foucault. (1971) Menselijke Natuur En Ideale Maatschappij (‘Human Nature and Ideal Society’). [TV Broadcast] Nederlandse Omroep Stichting.

‘It seems to me that the real political task in a society such as ours is to criticize the workings of institutions, which appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticize and attack 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 against them.’ (Chomsky and Foucault, 2006)
