The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “state of emergency” in
which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a
conception of history that is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall
clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency.
—Walter Benjamin, “Theses on the Philosophy of History
