A collaboration between Ardent Press and Cruel Hospice, this book newly-translated from French. discusses in plain yet pithy language many of the problems with our current society in an analysis that has something for readers at any stage of thinking about work and capitalism.
Today the managers want nothing less than to make every employee a situationist, enjoining them to be spontaneous, creative, autonomous, freewheeling, unattached, and greeting the precariousness of their lives with open arms. Trying to outdo this would be absurd. On the other hand, limiting the critique to the domain of the negative, without prescribing a specific goal, is to show great optimism stemming from the hypotheses (obviously unproven) that most people have within them all the energy necessary for their autonomy without there being the need to add any.
