Social Movements make society

The fundamental social conflict and its transformative/dialectical outcome

 

‘[s]ocial movements are not a marginal rejection of order, they are the central forces fighting one against the other to control the production of society by itself and the action of classes for the shaping of historicity’ (Touraine, 1981: 29) 

quoted in Nielsen, A. G. 2008 (?) Notes towards a Marxist Theory of Social Movements Part 1
