Notebook (temps perdu)

March 24, 2013 § Leave a comment

“The historical predictions about the fate of bourgeois society have been confirmed. In the system of the free market economy, which have pushed men to labour-saving discoveries and finally subsumed them in a global mathematical formula, its specific offspring, machines, have become means of destruction not only in the literal sense: they have made not work but the workers superfluous. The bourgeoisie has been decimated, and the majority of the middle class have lost their independence; where they have not been thrown into the ranks of the proletariat, or more commonly into the masses of the unemployed, they have become dependents of the big concerns or the state. The El Dorado of bourgeois existence, the sphere of circulation, is being liquidated.”
