Re: <nettime> n0name Blitz en. #1


Hiya,

If it means anything, reloading Marx can't involve this
hero-worshipping Trotsky and his fellow Bolshevik leaders 
whose government dissolved Russia's 1st elected parliament, 
ended local democracy, closed down opposition media, 
imprisoned trade unionists and invaded other people's countries. 
As long as Zizek and co carry on misidentifying communism with  
a defunct totalitarian police state, the apologists of big banks and 
big business can appear in such documentaries knowing that these
critics - in contrast with Marx himself - have no credible vision for the 
liberation of humanity...

âThe proletarian revolution is that critique of
human geography through which individuals 
and communities will begin constructing places
and events suitable for the re-appropriation not
only of their labour, but also of their total 
history. By virtue of the resulting mobile 
spaces of play, and by virtue of freely chosen
variations in the rules of the game, the 
autonomy of place and the authenticity of life 
will be discovered.â

Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle.
