The present work discusses social-political occurrences which could indicate a process of transformation of subjectivity. In order to comprehend this change, it is necessary to investigate how subjectivity is built, that is, how concrete, imaginary and simbolic modes of doing, thinking, feeling, speaking and fantasizing are constructed. We depart from the conviction that the subject is a social historical being crossed by need and desire. Such configuration indicates the undeceivable task of comprehending the social system in which the subjectivity unfolds, since it is in it and from the territorialities present in it that the possibilities of its realization are met or not. The capistalist mass production brings about the merchandise 'fetishization' (dynamics under which the worker is regarded as a material thing) and the reification of capital. One consequence of its empire is the reduction of the social historical being into individual alienation. It is suggested that the desire (of changing the structures of domination and exploitation) is a determinant factor and perhaps prior to the conscience of opression. Hence, the root of all revolutionary act lies in poetry, in word, in that which awakes the desire for transformation.
