Slaves and Masters
Only the Slaves can transform the World that forms him and fixes him in slavery and create a World that he has formed in which he will be free. And the slave achieves this only through forced and terrified work carried out in the Masters service. To be sure, this work by itself does not free him. But in transforming the World by his work, the Slave transforms himself, too, and thus creates the new objective conditions that permit him to take up once more the liberating Fight for recogmition that he refused in the begginning for fear of death. And thus in the long run, all slavish work realizes not the Masters will, but the will, at first unconcious, of the Slave, who finally, succeeds where the Master, necessarily, fails.
