Critique of the Manifesto for an Accelerationist Politics - P2P Foundation

Critique of the Manifesto for an Accelerationist Politics - P2P Foundation | Politics | Scoop.it

This is not the least merit of #Accelerate: Manifesto for an Accelerationist Politics. It has at least some grasp of contemporary conjuncture in which we find ourselves. But the grasp is in my view, only partial. In some ways it’s a rather old-fashioned text. Of course, one is always drawing on the past to imagine a future. But this process – some would call it détournement, some would call it hacking – has to be done with a little more historical depth and breadth. What follows, then, is a friendly commentary and critique of #Accelerate. The numbering of these counter-theses match those of the original document.

"Park Service did not want to barricade these, but unfortunately we have been directed, because of the lack of appropriations, to close all facilities and grounds," said National Mall and Memorial parks spokeswoman Carol Johnson.

"I know that this is an open-air memorial, but we have people on staff who are CPR trained, (and) we want to make sure that we have maintenance crew to take care of any problems. What we're trying to do is protect this resource for future generations," said Johnson.
