The Utopian Function in the Anarchist Imaginary

from Autonomies

Utopia lies at the horizon. When I draw nearer by two steps, it retreats two steps. If I proceed ten steps forward, it swiftly slips ten steps ahead. No matter how far I go, I can never reach it. What, then, is the purpose of utopia? It is to cause us to advance.

Fernando Birri quoted by Eduardo Galeano
