Estrangement

This post was made to the blog for Anti-State Communism Reading Group

From the blog of Ivor Southwood, author of a forthcoming book on precarious work called Non-Stop Intertia (Zero Books).

So, having tripped over precarity at the start of my nerve-jangling journey into understanding the experience of temporary work and 'jobseeking', I seem to have stumbled upon autonomy on the way out.

There are some interesting parallels between the themes covered in my book and those in Bifo Berardi's The Soul at Work: for instance, the power of technology to restrict as well as liberate, and the use of anxiety and debt as control mechanisms. Berardi also explores abstract areas I was wary of straying too far into as a relative novice, particularly drawing on Deleuze/Guattari to contextualise these themes.

The Becoming

ποταμοίσι τοίσιν αυτοίσιν εμβαίνουσιν, έτερα και έτερα ύδατα επιρρεί.

Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers

The quote from Heraclitus appears in Plato's Cratylus twice:

τα όντα ιέναι τε πάντα και μένειν ουδέν

All things move and nothing remains still

Negri: Letter to a Tunisian Friend

This post was made to the blog for Anti-State Communism Reading Group

Hi everyone - I wish I could have been coming to the sessions recently, but I only recently found a job and I'm struggling to find housing. Anyway, yesterday the journal Multitudes published a recent piece by Negri called "Letter to a Tunisian Friend" and I did translation of it with the hopes you might find it interesting or relevant to your discussions. It's quick and artless and likely riddled with mistakes, but maybe you'll find something useful in it.

unemployment article

This post was made to the blog for Anti-State Communism Reading Group

hm, just came across this article that I think illustrates Bonanno's point that reducing work is not the same as destroying it, since capital itself (here, a conservative German gov't) is interested in reducing work as a way of managing unemployment:
