It has occurred to me the world is indelibly stupid and so, probably, am I.
My theory is as follows: economic precarity makes people say what they really think because the energy they would spend self-censoring is instead spent on grinding / grifting / gigging / etc.
Therefore, as capitalism imiserates the middle class and proletarianises just about everyone except capital, we come face to face with our subconscious.
Then maybe something new can begin.
But oh boy —
Don’t count on it.
