The Das Kapital of the 20th century. An essential text, and the main theoretical work of the situationists. Few works of political and cultural theory have been as enduringly provocative. From its publication amid the social upheavals of the 1960’s up to the present, the volatile theses of this book have decisively transformed debates on the shape of modernity, capitalism, and everyday life in the late 20th century. This is the original translation by Fredy Perlman, kept in print continuously for the last 30 years, keeping the flame alive when no-one else cared.
A favorite quote of mine:
“The omnipresent image of everyone elses happiness terroristically condemns everyones real misery to silence.”
by Guy Debord from a book called SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE that either sparked or was a manifesto of sorts of the Situationists, a global movement at that time of that had more going on than just workers revolting for higher wages…
Not many publications reveal this but because of social media this new/old insight needs to counter the frenzy for attention that social media purposefully dictates… Other sources and resources:
