Guy Debord: The Revolutionary Project of Time

a_time

The revolutionary project of a classless society, of an all-embracing historical life, implies the withering away of the social measurement of time in favor of a federation of independent times — a federation of playful individual and collective forms of irreversible time that are simultaneously present. This would be the temporal realization of authentic communism, which “abolishes everything that exists independently of individuals.”

The world already dreams of such a time. In order to actually live it, it only needs to become fully conscious of it.

– Guy Debord,   Society of the Spectacle
