About Cry

André Breton wrote "Beauty is convulsive or it will not be." (Nadja, 1928).

Karl Marx believed that "Theory can grip the masses as soon as it demonstrates ad hominem, which it achieves the moment it becomes radical (...) But for man the root is man himself." (A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right', 1844).

Guy Debord criticised the insufficiency of fighting alienation using "alienated forms of struggle" and wrote of breaking the "machines of permitted consumption." (Society of the Spectacle, 1967).

The Socialist Patients' Collective of the University of Heidelberg wrote that whoever claims they want to "observe the bare facts dispassionately" is either an "idiot" or a "dangerous criminal." (Turn Illness Into a Weapon, 1972).

They all had the right idea. We need a new expression of it, appropriate for our epoch. We who write and produce Cry magazine throw stuff. We believe in the human spirit.
