thanks for this.  great exercise. 

i'm sure you've seen the attribututions on the interenet to the rosa luxemburg reader.  i don't have that. 

i've searched most but not all (yet) from the links at this website: http://www.marxists.org/archive/luxemburg/ . 

i used both the search engine and opened almost all of the links.  nothing. 

i'm thinking that if she said it, it was in a letter. 

if it's a ruse, it's clever.  a simple search of her works shows she likes the word "loudly".  but the idea doesn't really sound like her at all.  proclaiming the truth seems more to her a duty than the most revolutionary thing.  the quote almost undermines her.

Rule #1: YOU MUST clip all extraneous text when replying to a message. 

'The most revolutionary thing one can do is always to proclaim loudly what 
is happening.' 

That sentence, attributed to Rosa Luxemburg, appears in many places on the 
net, but none that I've found gives an actual source. 

Can anyone tell me where it can be found in her works?
