A couple of selections of writing by Rosa Luxemburg (1871-1919), from letters to her comrades. Both deal with global human (and species) solidarity.
“What do you want with these special Jewish pains? I feel as close to the wretched victims of the rubber plantations in Putumayo and the blacks of Africa with whose bodies the Europeans play ball…. I have no special corner in my heart for the [Jewish] ghetto: I am at home wherever in the world there there are clouds, birds, and tears.”
“I suppose I must be out of sorts to feel everything so intensely. Sometimes it seems to me that I am not really a human being at all, but rather a bird or beast in human form.”
