Escobar on New Men and Social Change
"In the past they told us not to worry about changing society because what we need is to change men. New men will change society. But when the new men begin to worry about changing society, they are told not to worry, that the world has always been bad, that we await new heavens and a new earth and that this world is condemned to destruction. Why try to make it better? What's even worse is that those who teach this are the ones who enjoy all the advantages that this passing world offers, and they passionately defend them whenever they are endangered."

Moreover, the things that you need to do to change the existing system are the exact opposite of the things that you need to do to survive within the existing system.
