Labour without complications: Theses on the new proletarian economy

It has occurred to me the world is indelibly stupid and so, probably, am I.

Friedrich Engels, colleague and interpreter of Marx.

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.
