„Hegel bemerkt irgendwo, daß alle großen weltgeschichtlichen Tatsachen und Personen sich sozusagen zweimal ereignen. Er hat vergessen hinzuzufügen: das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce. Caussidière für Danton, Louis Blanc für Robespierre, die Montagne von 1848-1851 für die Montagne von 1793-1795, der Neffe für den Onkel. Und dieselbe Karikatur in den Umständen, unter denen die zweite Auflage des achtzehnten Brumaire herausgegeben wird!“

(zugrunde liegt dem folgende Passage aus Hegels Vorlesungen über die Philosophie der Geschichte: "Trotzdem sehen wir, daß die edelsten Männer Roms dafürhalten, die Herrschaft Cäsars sei etwas Zufälliges, und der ganze Zustand desselben sei an seine Individualität gebunden: so Cicero, so Brutus und Cassius; sie glaubten, wenn dies eine Individuum entfernt sei, so sei auch von selbst die Republik wieder da. Durch diesen merkwürdigen Irrtum befangen, ermordeten Brutus, ein höchst edles Individuum, und Cassius, tatkräftiger als Cicero, den Mann, dessen Tugenden sie schätzten. Unmittelbar darauf aber zeigte es sich, daß nur einer den römischen Staat leiten könne, und nun mußten die Römer daran glauben; wie denn überhaupt eine Staatsumwälzung gleichsam im Dafürhalten der Menschen sanktioniert wird, wenn sie sich wiederholt. So ist Napoleon zweimal unterlegen, und zweimal vertrieb man die Bourbonen. Durch die Wiederholung wird das, was im Anfang nur als zufällig und möglich erschien, zu einem Wirklichen und Bestätigten." - Hegel: Sämtliche Werke, hrsg. von Georg Lasson, Band VIII,2, Felix Meiner Leipzig 1912, S. 712 archive.org https://archive.org/stream/smtlichewerke81hege#page/712/mode/2up

Kontext: Money appears as measure (in Homer, e. g. oxen) earlier than as medium of exchange, because in barter each commodity is still its own medium of exchange. But it cannot be its own or its own standard of comparison.

„The worker therefore only feels himself outside his work, and in his work feels outside himself“

—  Karl Marx, buch Ökonomisch-philosophische Manuskripte aus dem Jahre 1844

Estranged Labour, p. 30.
Paris Manuscripts (1844)
Kontext: The fact that labour is external to the worker, i. e., it does not belong to his intrinsic nature; that in his work, therefore he does not affirm himself but denies himself, does not feel content but unhappy, does not develop freely his physical and mental energy but mortifies his body and his mind. The worker therefore only feels himself outside his work, and in his work feels outside himself.

„In like manner, the beginner who has learned a new language always translates it back into his mother tongue, but he assimilates the spirit of the new language and expresses himself freely in it only when he moves in it without recalling the old and when he forgets his native tongue.“

—  Karl Marx

The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte (1852)
Kontext: Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past. The tradition of all dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brains of the living. And just as they seem to be occupied with revolutionizing themselves and things, creating something that did not exist before, precisely in such epochs of revolutionary crisis they anxiously conjure up the spirits of the past to their service, borrowing from them names, battle slogans, and costumes in order to present this new scene in world history in time-honored disguise and borrowed language. Thus Luther put on the mask of the Apostle Paul, the Revolution of 1789-1814 draped itself alternately in the guise of the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, and the Revolution of 1848 knew nothing better to do than to parody, now 1789, now the revolutionary tradition of 1793-95. In like manner, the beginner who has learned a new language always translates it back into his mother tongue, but he assimilates the spirit of the new language and expresses himself freely in it only when he moves in it without recalling the old and when he forgets his native tongue.
When we think about this conjuring up of the dead of world history, a salient difference reveals itself. Camille Desmoulins, Danton, Robespierre, St. Just, Napoleon, the heroes as well as the parties and the masses of the old French Revolution, performed the task of their time – that of unchaining and establishing modern bourgeois society – in Roman costumes and with Roman phrases.

„When people speak of ideas that revolutionize society, they do but express the fact that within the old society, the elements of a new one have been created,“

—  Karl Marx

Section 2, paragraph 58.
The Manifesto of the Communist Party (1848)
Kontext: When people speak of ideas that revolutionize society, they do but express the fact that within the old society, the elements of a new one have been created, and that the dissolution of the old ideas keeps even pace with the dissolution of the old conditions of existence.

„Communism differs from all previous movements in that it overturns the basis of all earlier relations of production and intercourse, and for the first time consciously treats all natural premises as the creatures of hitherto existing men, strips them of their natural character and subjugates them to the power of the united individuals.“

—  Karl Marx, buch Die deutsche Ideologie

Vol. I, Part 4.
The German Ideology (1845/46)
Kontext: Communism differs from all previous movements in that it overturns the basis of all earlier relations of production and intercourse, and for the first time consciously treats all natural premises as the creatures of hitherto existing men, strips them of their natural character and subjugates them to the power of the united individuals. Its organisation is, therefore, essentially economic, the material production of the conditions of this unity; it turns existing conditions into conditions of unity. The reality, which communism is creating, is precisely the true basis for rendering it impossible that anything should exist independently of individuals, insofar as reality is only a product of the preceding intercourse of individuals themselves.
