Notes from Tomorrow: On Reason, Negation and Certainty (Radical Notes – 8)
It is easy to say what is wrong with capitalism. It is much more difficult to decide what therefore needs to be done. The biggst danger of a critique of capitalism is that it itself becomes reified.
This book examines the dangers of reified critiques of capitalism, and activism grounded in these critiques. It argues against the idea of history as an unfolding force. History is made, therefore it takes no site. History as the history of the victors of history must end Now.
