Forget Capital…

I sometimes think that the Left in embracing the Image of capitalism rather than its effect has contributed to its own illusionary critique; as if in creating the monstrous Image of Capital we’ve built a false simulacrum, an idol we could smash against our critical apparatuses without ever alleviating the real problems which remain in the shadowlands of our planet like so many lost objects. The mirror of capital is broken beyond repair, and we seem bent on putting it back together again book by book – a repetitive act of absolution and absolutizing – rather than crushing its false semblance into oblivion.

Forget Capital… discover a path forward…  absorb the image, embrace the consequences of that which has already happened, the fatality of your existence.
