Re: <nettime> Fwd: Re: Forms of decisionism


   Brian poses the right questions. As for regulation theory mixed with
   kondratiev please also see (in addition to paul mason) my two 2009
   contributions which built on stuff posted on nettime

   https://www.academia.edu/9343417/Climate_Anarchists_vs_Green_Capitalists (pag 5-6)

   and

   http://www.agenziax.it/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/anarchy-in-the-eu.pdf (pages after 230 for the full model) - what just want to say that
   this is the crisis of neoliberalism not the crisis of capitalism. it's
   a regulation, deflationary crisis like the Great Depression with
   attendant fascist danngers. neoliberalism cannot regulate
   informationalism properly, it cannot distribute widely and/or guarantee
   consensus. the regulation regime after the Great Depression was solved
   by war, but national socialism was as apt as democratic socialism in
   solving the problems of fordism. i contend ideology is mighty important
   in our predicament much as it was in the 1930s and 1940s in shaping the
   future. Call it the Dickian moment in history. Fordism could carry
   either the swastika or the whites. Everything is weird, and there's
   many men in many high castels, but an alternative to european and
   islamic fascism needs to be found and fast. Neoliberalism won when it
   subjected political to economic power. We need to find a way for social
   power to subject political and financial power. But most especially
   there needs to be ideological production of a Universal Federation of
   the Peoples of Earth. Crucially, the new radical ideology needs to
   redistribute, but also to give sense and meaning to people's lives.
   The Black Star of the Uprooted and Exploited needs to rise again from
   the ashes - in what guise: TechnoPopulism might be a good name - who
   knows - let's be the Surrealists who enter major ideological debate: I
   side with Errejon;)

     I begin to worry about the theory of the three crises, which Brian,
     building on "regulation school" research and "long wave" economic
     theories, has put forward, which has been at the core of the
     techno-politics project in which I'm deeply involved, and which
     informed many of the the most productive threads within nettime over
     the last, say, 5 years.
