Communist Measures: thinking a Communist Horizon

Die Politik der Grausamkeit

8 Dez , 2015  

I). Die Politik, die uns anleitet, ist nicht ethisch, sondern grausam. Wir setzen der Politik der Ethik die Politik der Grausamkeit entgegen. Die Ethik geht ganz auf die Griechen zurück, deren Ethik das Studium des »guten Lebens« beinhaltete. Unsere Interessen liegen überhaupt nicht darin, besser als unsere Feinde zu sein. ...

Gavin Mueller: Your 1999 book Cyber-Marx is an excellent summary of autonomist Marxism and post-operaismo as well as an argument for its relevance for struggles against a capitalism increasingly suffused with information and communication technology.
