‘Stating the obvious isn’t an analysis’

On the Critical Attitude

The critical attitude

Strikes many people as unfruitful

That is because they find the state

Impervious to their criticism

But what in this case is an unfruitful attitude

Is merely a feeble attitude.

Give criticism arms

And states can be demolished by it.

 

 

Canalising a river

Grafting a fruit tree

Educating a person

Transforming a state

These are instances of fruitful criticism

And at the same time instances of art.

-Bertolt Brecht
