“(Reblogged from what-was-e-schatology)
capitalism’s great work of salvage is the salvage of time: making something out of every last bit. In earlier formations, the worker kept time to inhuman rhythms of the integrated factory, and Fordism streamlined movements to the single repetitive task. On from there: the colonization of our free time, never being able to punch out, free time only a self-subtracting countdown back to the time of value. The work of “creative” capital, when being aware of “what’s going on” culturally and socially is our supposed protection against the precarity of labor. No longer blocks of time or long cycles, just pseudo-cycles that never start or stop yet which don’t advance. The factory never sleeps anymore.
