a (late) contribution to a prizeless contest presented by Infinite ThØught
Five Amongst Our Enemies:
1. the commodification of everyday life:
a - memory, time, culture, life receive all value from their exchange value
b - the amnesiac society; the supremacy of a consumption which exists in an eternal ahistorical present
c - the sociality of social life having been replaced by coordinated consumption amongst adjacent individuals
2. the ideological dissolution of shared value(s) in favor of individual value(s)
3. the triumph of ideology as anti-ideology; the invisible takeover of 'things as they are' (according to Imperial rules) rather than 'things as they could be'
4. the primary optimistic assumption on the part of those who support 'things as they are' - without recognizing reality as a dangerous proposition
5. the lack of general recognition that this assumption (4) reveals the ideological biases of "anti"-ideology.
