The experience of the world by far exceeds any categoric effort to understand the world.

A paradox: there is no justice as long as any concept of justice is imperative.

The emancipatory transformations may follow motivations other than those developed theoretically, and such diversity should be valorized.

There is no way of knowing the world better than by participating a better world.

Institutionalised lies can – and should – be unmasked intellectually, but this is meaningless without unmasking them practically at the same time, as the truth is a concrete institution existing in a concrete world.

The historical record of global capitalism, colonialism, and patriarchy is full of insti­tutionalized, harmful lies, lies that are not lies anymore, as they are institutionalized as social practices (aka. truth).

And let me allow Boaventura de Sousa to have a solo in the end:

“social regulation in the name of social emancipation, appropriation in the name of liberation, violence in the name of peace, the destruction of life in the name of the sanctity of life, violation of human rights in the name of human rights, societal fascism in the name of political democracy, illegal plundering in the name of the rule of law, assimilation in the name of diversity, individual vulnerability in the name of individual autonomy, constitution of subhumanities in the name of humanity, putting price tags on convictions in the name of priceless values, commodification in the name of redemption, standardization in the name of choice, massification in the name of freedom, racism in the name of tolerance, constitutional wrongs in the name of constitutional rights, ontologies of inferiority in the name of Immanuel Kant's Was ist die Aufklarung?, inequalities after the law in the name of equality before the law, compulsive consumption in the name of happiness, and hypocrisy in proclaiming principles (St. Thomas's habitus principiorum) in order to cover up for the most hideous negations of recta vita.“

Still nothing.
