The Endarkenment of Social-Life: As Enlightenment Beyond State-Normalcy

by Maxwell Clark


The normalization of capitalistic modes of production have heretofore forever been essential to the poesy of state-power over society. "Prior" to when the now cancerously global metastasis of industrial technology calculatively rationalized the everyday behaviors of society -- and precisely unto their representation as the affective (even also unconscious) norms of state governance---prior to this, this ideational mechanization placing society under an (inconsistent) complexus of governmental norms, this arrogation of the voice's ethical wisdom by hand-eye planes of coordination, there is no otherwise more original world "prior" to this except this world itself expressed more and more (((and...))) elementally primal. The pure future of this pre-original normalcy, further, is utterly unforeseeable, or perhaps even "without future" -- as it were, in as the future itself presents an absolute alterity to and apart the present. Insofar as postindustrial modes of technical behavior are already present in society, however, another renovation of state normalcy is perhaps rather discretely culminating even now.

  1. Why call it government at all? Let's just cut to the chase. But what term or phrase to use to describe a puppet show government sponsored by the corporation? My term for it is Corps(e)itarianism™. What's yours, Max?

    in government we trust, ie in nothing we trust,

    your faithful servant in poesy,
