"Living in the virtual Temple of the Neoliberal Cathedral we have lost our ability to know the difference between time lived and time erased and have in the end entered the slipstream of our own collective amnesia."

"Advertising has successfully used both these strategies to accelerate identity formation/dissolution and, by extension, consumer capitalism. There is no reason that radical groups could not use similar methods to challenge capitalism and develop alternative collective identities. The contemporary focus on critical and deconstructive social theory offers fertile ground for positive and collective re-translations. The fear of unity, although understandable, can be limiting to radical political movements. The unity produced by re-translations are not necessarily oppressive, especially if these moments of unity are periodically disrupted and re-configured by schizophrenic outbreaks. A successful contemporary politics has stakes in defining the rhythmic flow between schizophrenic and identificatory impulses. Hopefully, alternative rhythms can challenge, or at least syncopate, the accelerating rhythm of late capitalism."

"Capitalism and Schizophrenia: Contemporary Visual Culture and the Acceleration of Identity Formation/Dissolution" - Jonah Peretti

Written by the founder of BuzzFeed. What a fascinating trajectory:

"From Deleuze to LOLCats, the Story of the BuzzFeed Guy" and “BuzzFeed Founder Responds to His Marxist Roots, ‘Lol’”

Is BuzzFeed “one giant resistance”?

"The fugitivity of Indigenous art in struggle is not a flight from battle or a defensive, reactionary posture against the predation and violence of colonialism. As Collins…argues, the violence and broken promises of colonialism are what fuel the resurgence of the ‘warrior energy’ of the people, funneling it into creative contention with the limits of colonial modernity. Fugitivity finds its energetic potency in remaining illegible to power, incommensurable with colonialism, and opaque to appropriation, commodification and cultural theft. That which is fugitive proposes an insurgent force of dissident visibility; it is the hidden that reveals itself in motion. The fugitive aesthetic is thus an overflowing of borders and bordered-thinking, a liminal praxis whose generative effects activate art in a transversal re-presencing of indigeneity throughout Indigenous lands, languages and territories. The cultural and aesthetic production that emanates from these positions is a strategic motion of refusal: to evade capture, resist cooptation, and renew Indigenous life-ways through the creative negation of reductive colonial demarcations of being and sensing. In this way, Indigenous art contributes to decolonization by disrupting colonialism’s linear ordering of the world and its conditioning of possibility. Art creates experiences of potentiality that inspire and sustain our collective struggles for freedom; Indigenous art reminds, remembers, and calls out to us to account for colonial injustice, and to realize the potential freedom found in our creative transformation of the world."
