review í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ô Benjamin Noys Benjamin Noys Ô 5 characters Free read Malign Velocities Accelerationism and Capitalism Celerate it Rejecting this conclusion Malign Velocities tracks this 'accelerationism' as the symptom of the misery and pain of labour under capitalism Retracing a series of historical moments of accelerationism the Italian Futurism; communist accelerationism after the Russian Revolution; the 'cyberpunk phuturism' of the ’90s and ’00. Parts of this book were decidedly a bit beyond my comprehension and took awhile for me to dig around the vocabulary I am not that familiar with but beyond that I am surprised by the well roundedness of Noys s exploration of the topic As such some uotes showing his words are better than my attempt to sum them up What we can trace between anti accelerationists and accelerationists is a strangeconvergence on nostalgia nostalgia for a vanishing possibility of socialist slow down itself aterminal slide away from socialism versus a capitalist ostalgie that can only fill in our absentfuture with past dreams of acceleration This is a painful irony for accelerationism inparticular which stakes so much on its futurism The nostalgia is a nostalgia for forces adesire for something anything to generate enough energy and momentum to break thehorizon of the present It is important that this is a metaphysics of forces and not force in thesingular to account for the dispersion and linking of different possible sites into a plane ofimmanence Accelerationism is constructive but the construct replicates the past in the guiseof a possible futureIf accelerationism points to the problem of labor as the moving contradiction of capital both source of value and sueezed out by the machine then it tries to solve thiscontradiction by alchemising labor with the machine I want to suggest that this is not asolution We can t speed through to some future labor delegated to the machine nor can wereturn to the good old days of labor as honest day s work In fact accelerationism indicatesthe impossibility of labor within the form of capitalism This obviously doesn t mean labordoes not take place but it means labor can t and doesn t perform the function of politicalsocial and economic validation capitalism implies The readiness of capitalism to abandonany particular form of labor at the drop of a hat or at the drop of the markets suggests thatlabor cannot carry the ideological weight it is supposed toIn his study of workers in post Apartheid South Africa Franco Barchiesi has detailed howon the one hand work is the condition of neoliberal citizenship and how on the other handit can t allow for true self reproduction The privatization of healthcare insurancetransportation costs home ownership etc leaves those lucky enough to be in work unableto survive While labor is essential for citizenship if we think of the demonization of welfare scroungers benefit cheats and so on and on it also never performs thatfunctionWhat is also crucial about Barchiesi s argument is that he notes that the revelation of this precariousness or impossibility of labor does not simply lead to left wing political activation but in the current ideological context is as likely to lead to anti immigrant and anti welfare sentiments Those struggling to survive as precarious workers are as likely to turn on others as they are to start new forms of support and struggle that recognize the impossibility of work This is I think one of the crucial conundrums of the present moment Accelerationism tries to resolve it in machinic integration and extinction which bypasses the problem of consciousness awareness and struggle in a logic of immersion We are torn by the moving contradiction of capital into two broken halves that can t be put back togetherA working solution to be deliberately ironic is to struggle for decommodification of ourlives Campaigns against privatization and for the return of privatized services to publiccontrol try to reduce our dependence on work by attacking the way work is supposed toaccount for all of our self reproduction These struggles are in parallel for struggles to defendpublic services protect benefits and sustain social and collective forms of support Whilethey may be unglamorous especially compared to space travel these struggles can negate theconditions of the impossibility of work by trying to detach work from its ideological andmaterial role as the validation of citizenship and existence
