Re: <nettime> Franco Berardi & Geert Lovink: A call to the Army of Love and to the Army of Software


Hi,

I agree with many ideas of this inspiring text, despite certain questions:

1/ I'm not sure that the word "nazism" is able to make us understand very
well the market logics... ok, it's an image, but some images are more able
to install a screen of clichés than an access to reality;

2/ I wonder if OWS is not quite the contrary of this text: the problem is
not to make vanish the political "pupetts" but to embody them into a one per
cent, into a One against 99. To give market bodies (as an Army of Hatred? Or
an Army of Insensitivity? Human Drones of the Capital?...) in order to fight
against the ideological representation of
it-is-the-fault-of-the-machines-and-sorry-we-can't-help-it-just-put-another-coin-please;

3/ I love Sci-Fi and his power to turn concepts into perceptions, but I feel
unwell to read that especially when the Real appears...

All my best,

Frederic Neyrat
