But is it possible to say that those who live comfortably on consumption are not happy? I postulate that, at this point, it is necessary to get ones hands on an old omission of those sacrificed classical Marxist revolutionaries: precisely the issue of human happiness. "We want to be free and happy" is a statement that requires a judgement on the possible happiness in a social system, and its comparison with another. And this is something that Marxists have left for obvious until today, and certainly is not any more of the obviousness that everyone assumed. Now, when the chances of reformism are broader than ever, and seem to be such in a plausible way, the possibility to think of a revolutionary perspective requires greater effort, a greater risk, than the classic one. And it is at this point that Marx's concept of alienation is crucial.
