Tell Me About It

From Félix Guattari and Toni Negri, Communists Like Us--
Work itself -- as organized by capitalism or socialism -- has become the intersection of irrational social reproduction and amplified social constraints. Fetters -- irrational social constraints -- are thus at the foundation of all subjective consciousness formed in the work process. And establishing this collective subjectivity of restriction and surveillance is the first imperative of the capitalist work apparatus. Self-surveillance and doubt prevent any intimations of escape, and preempt any questioning of the political, legal or moral legitimacy of the system. No one can withdraw from this capitalist legality of blindness and absurd goals.
