Testing Heiner Müller’s statement: “[...] It would really be a revolutionary act if people were happy to see others, outside, who have nothing to eat. If people did so consciously, that would be a revolutionary act. There would then be the shadow of a chance that someday these homeless would eventually be exasperated and that they will do something. The first commandment of Marxism says: "a socialist is not alms." On the contrary: a socialist should awaken in one who has nothing to eat, the conscience of his hunger by eating in front of him and not giving him anything." (Heiner Müller. 1991. Fautes d’impression; Textes et entretiens. Paris : L'Arche, p. 108-109)
