Cursory notes by spitzenprodukte on the evolution of a memetic non-demand.
You hear it everywhere, these days, if you walk within a certain activist milieu. It’s a token demand, a given. FULL COMMUNISM- I wouldn’t get out of bed for anything less. It’s a joke, a dumb joke. It’s a communist meme. Like all good memes, it’s pretty much devoid of meaning, in terms of content. But its use denotes something else– a Zizekian uber-demand, a demand which goes beyond.
A beautiful poem, here preserved for posterity, by two unknown renegades.
Just mechanized blades slashing about everywhere
An atmosphere utterly hostile to human life
Hopefully, eventually the technology will expand to the entire solar system,
Until eventually all of reality is covered by a beautiful megamachine
Not even a weed will grow
The planet will just be mechanical noise
Heard by no one
Felt by nothing
Imagine that glorious noise!

weeler: Recessions are inherent in the boom bust cycle of capital, "greedy bankers" are a scapegoat distracting from the fact that this will happen again and again and again. Blaming them implies you could have a nicer capitalism with good bankers, this is social democracy at best.
