Some Notes On the Spectacle of Opposition

“Don’t get caught up in the spectacle of Opposition. Oppose the spectacle.”

This is much easier said than done, since we are a generation raised entirely under the domination of the spectacle, without an counter-hegemonic workers movement from which we could learn and to which we could contribute. To date, all that we have had is an echo of a memory of a time when there was such a thing. We don’t yet know how to move toward what we need. All we can know right now is that we needn’t any longer cling to our routines, and even that is a debate.
