  • The Spiritual Crisis of Capitalism - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    country in the world Then one bright industrious and cheerfully determined student reported that the first few days of her job she proudly reported to her supervisor that she had finished all of her work before lunch and asked for more After a few days she realized that her supervisor was far from pleased with her efficiency and that she was putting her supervisor in an awkward position forcing her to find more work when there already wasn t enough to go around The student scaled back and fell in line with her peers working about two hours or 25 percent of an 8 hour business day the rest was spent on the internet or reading novels All was well and everyone understood the drill Something structural seems to be happening around the problem of work and unemployment that is not necessarily cyclical Capital is all about leaner and meaner efficiency and the one area where profit is reliably extracted is through increased productivity producing more with less labor So why has corporate capital allowed these inefficiencies to continue A completely untestable theory might argue that this irrational activity might be the subconscious wisdom of the Market Imagine if 75 percent of cubicle workers were laid off I know this is an exaggerated premise but I m trying to make a simple point What would they do Would they be passively herded into unemployment lines Would they wait their turn to be re schooled in order to be more efficient workers in a new role No I don t think so Regardless of the mechanisms behind the action if too many more people become unemployed underemployed and unemployable some might begin to wonder if they were just unlucky or if the system is actually flawed if the promise of capitalism and the free market is a rigged game The secret might get out capitalism certainly creates jobs but it also creates unemployment and in its late stages capitalism produces the unemployed as a new class One of the important points made by Marx was that we have every reason to believe that capitalism will succeed in one of its most important goals lowering labor costs Capitalism has made extraordinary gains in technology and has applied new technological advances to the means of production When the media reports that there has been a rise in productivity and stock markets cheer the success one should understand that it basically means that more work has been done by fewer workers that more profit will be extracted by reducing labor costs usually by eliminating jobs or driving down labor costs in various ways Marx imagined that there would come a time when productivity would reach a point that our needs could be met with much less labor One aspect of the crisis of capital was to imagine how we would live in a world without work how would we occupy ourselves when society had advanced beyond the most pressing economic needs John Maynard Keynes no Marxist himself made much the same point about 80 years after Marx In an essay Economic Possibilities for Our Grandchildren written in 1930 at the time of the Great Depression Keynes tried to imagine the world of his grandchildren in 2030 He drew the startling conclusion assuming no important wars and no important increase in population that the struggle for subsistence would be solved by economic development and what had been thought to be humankind s permanent problem would disappear This wasn t a necessarily happy event for he speculated that the psychological threat of a world without work would deprive most people of their traditional sense of purpose I think with dread of the readjustment of the habits and instincts of the ordinary man bred into him for countless generations which he may be asked to discard within a few decades To use the language of today must we not expect a general nervous breakdown To ease the transition Keynes recommended that we spread the remaining work around so that everybody might have 20 hours work per week and that way maintain some sense of our traditional purpose as workers as we adjust to the new world and try to deal with our freedom One truth that history right up to the Great Recession has made clear is how utterly wrong Adam Smith was when he speculated that if the markets were allowed to operate freely and unregulated then capitalism s invisible hand would take care of everything and most everyone would be happy As one of my colleagues observed when there is a hole in your theory the tendency is to fill it with God or some other vague and unproven helper such as Smith s invisible hand of the market Nirvana or nervous breakdown we re headed to a world without work and the capitalist system doesn t have a solution to the growing number of unneeded workers Waking Up to Capital Buddhist Insurrection What do Marx and the Occupy movement and the Arab Spring and the indignados in Spain and the suffering surplus poor and the unemployed and the debt ridden college graduates living at home and the consolidation of wealth and the destruction of middle class wealth and the subprime collapse and bail out of banks too big to fail and the working conditions at the Foxconn Apple factory in China have to do with BUDDHISM In my classes at conferences and in conversation with friends we have tried to imagine a world without capitalism We are all swimming in the world of capital Capitalism is not just an economic system it is the dominant world culture Buddhism then lives in the culture of capital too History has provided numerous examples of political economic and cultural collapse including many societies that were in denial about what was happening during the shift In 1932 the 13th Dalai Lama made a political prediction that proved fairly accurate Fighting and conflict have become part of the very

    the constantly emerging desires and multiple steps of self activity not bring into question every existing partition and boundary In this sprawling industrial zone at every work station in each work break whether it s a tea break or a lunch break conversations gather storm Intervals are generative They bring desires into the open and become occasions to invent steps and actions No one is any longer invested in agreements that claim that they might be able to bring forth a better future in three years or maybe five Instead workers are assessing constantly negotiating continually examining the self and examining the strength of the collective ceaselessly And with it a wink and a smile Let s see how a manager manages this The borders drawn up by agreements are breached the game of concession wobbles middlemen disaggregate When we do and can do everything on our own why then do we need the mediation of leaders Whether or not to return to work after a break and across how many factories should we act together we decide these things on our own between ourselves said a seamstress Others concurred When we act like this on our own results are rapid and our self confidence grows and elaborated on the other hand when a leader steps in things fall apart it s disheartening When we are capable of doing everything on our own why should we go about seeking disappointment Are these various actions that are being taken today breaking the stronghold of demand based thinking The most remarkable and influential tendency that has emerged in this extensive industrial belt cannot be wrapped up contained in or explained via the language of conditions demands and concessions Why Over the years the dominant trend has been to portray workers as poor things which effectively traps them in a language that makes them seem like victims of their condition and dependent on concessions And then they are declared as being in thrall to the language of conditions demands and concessions This is a vicious cycle In the last few years the workers of Maruti Suzuki Manesar have ripped through this encirclement What is it that workers want What in the world do workers want The company the local government the central government were clueless in 2011 they stayed clueless through 2012 and they are still clueless This makes them nervous That is why when workers exploded despite the substantial concessions being offered by management it resulted in six hundred paramilitary commandos being deputed to restore normalcy One hundred and forty seven workers are political prisoners even today Do these questions hold for everyone everywhere in the world The April 2014 issue of FMS featured a categorical statement Today we can say with full confidence that an unsettling courses through seven billion people It is inspired by the desire for an assertion of the overflowing of the surplus of life It is an expression of creative boundless astonishment Today we can say with

  • Peak Nature - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    academic work where the point will not be to one up each other by appealing to the trace of the givenness of the openness of the clearing of the lighting of the being of the pencil Thinking past meta mode will at least bring us up to speed with the weirdness of things a weirdness that evolution ecology relativity and quantum theory all speak about This weirdness resides on the side of objects themselves not our interpretation of them When we flush the toilet we imagine that the U bend takes the waste away into some ontologically alien realm Ecology is now beginning to tell us of something very different a flattened world without ontological U bends A world in which there is no away Marx was partly wrong then when in The Communist Manifesto he claimed that in capitalism all that is solid melts into air He didn t see how a kind of hypersolidity oozes back into the emptied out space of capitalism a hypersolidity I call here hyperobjects This oozing real comes back and can no longer be ignored so that even when the spill is supposedly gone and forgotten there look There it is mile upon mile of strands of oil just below the surface square mile upon square mile of ooze floating at the bottom of the ocean The cosmic U bend is no more It can t be gone and forgotten even ABC News knows that now When I hear the word sustainability I reach for my sunscreen The End of the World When Neo touches a mirror in The Matrix it adheres to his hand instantly changing from reflective surface to viscous substance The very thing that we use to reflect becomes an object in its own right liquid and dark like oil in the dim light of the room in which Neo has taken the red pill The usual reading of this scene is that Neo s reality is dissolving If we stay on the level of the sticky oily mirror however we obtain an equally powerful reading It s not reality that dissolves but the subject the very capacity to mirror things to be separate from the world like someone looking at a reflection in a mirror removed from it by an ontological sheet of reflective glass The sticky mirror demonstrates the truth of what phenomenology calls ingenuousness or sincerity I m thinking here of the work of Ortega y Gasset Levinas and Graham Harman Objects are what they are in the sense that no matter what we are aware of or how there it is impossible to shake off In the midst of irony there you are being ironic Even mirrors are what they are no matter what they reflect In its ingenuous sincerity reality envelops us like a film of oil The mirror becomes a substance an object Hyperobjects push the reset button on sincerity just as Neo discovers that the mirror no longer distances his image from him in a nice aesthetically manageable way but sticks to him The beautiful reversibility of the oily melting mirror speaks to something that is happening in a global warming age precisely because of hyperobjects the simultaneous dissolution of reality and the overwhelming presence of hyperobjects which stick to us which are us The Greeks called it miasma the way blood guilt sticks to you Why objects why now The philosopher Graham Harman writes that because they withdraw irreducibly you can t even get closer to objects This becomes clearer as we enter the ecological crisis How far in are we This anxiety is a symptom of the emergence of hyperobjects When you approach them more and more objects emerge It s like being in a dream written by Zeno This strange paradox becomes clearer as we enter the age of ecological crisis Has it started yet How far in are we is the question on all our lips precisely because we are in it precisely because it has started It s November 2010 You are waiting at a bus stop Someone else ambles up Nice weather isn t it she asks You pause for a moment You wonder whether she is only saying that to distract you from the latest news about global warming You decide she isn t Yes you say But your reply holds something back the awareness that for you it s not a particularly nice day because you re concerned that the heat and the moisture have to do with global warming This holding back may or may not be reflected in your tone Mind you she says Oh here it comes you think Funny weather last week wasn t it I blame global warming We all have conversations that are more or less like that now Just as after 9 11 objects to which we may have paid attention an X Acto knife some white powder suddenly gained a terrible significance so in an age of global warming the weather that nice neutral backdrop that you can talk about with a stranger in that nice neutral backdrop y way we might call phatic after Roman Jakobson has taken on a menacing air In any weather conversation one of you is going to mention global warming at some point Or you both decide not to mention it but it looms over the conversation like a dark cloud brooding off the edge of an ellipsis This failure of the normal rhetorical routine these remnants of shattered conversation lying around like broken hammers they must take place everywhere is a symptom of a much larger and deeper ontological shift in human awareness Which in turn is a symptom of a profound upgrade of our ontological tools As anyone who has waited while the little rainbow circle goes around and around on a Mac knows these upgrades are not necessarily pleasant It is very much the job of humanists such as ourselves to attune ourselves to the upgrading process and to help explain it What is the upgrading process In a word the notion that we are living in a world one that for instance we can call Nature no longer exists in any meaningful sense except as nostalgia or in the temporarily useful local language of pleas and petitions We don t want a certain species to be farmed to extinction so we use the language of Nature to convince a legislative body We have a general feeling of ennui and malaise and create nostalgic visions of Hobbit like worlds to inhabit These syndromes have been going on now since as long as the Industrial Revolution began to take effect As a consequence of that revolution however something far bigger and more threatening is now looming on our horizon looming so as to abolish our horizon or any horizon in fact Global warming the consequence of runaway fossil fuel burning as we all know ad nauseam has performed a radical shift in the status of the weather Why Because the world as such not just a certain idea of world but world in its entirety has evaporated Or rather we are realizing that we never had it in the first place We could explain this in terms of the good old fashioned Aristotelian view of substance and accident I m sure you are familiar with the idea that for Aristotle a realist there are substances that happen to have various qualities or accidents that are not intrinsic to their substantiality In section Epsilon 2 of the Metaphysics Aristotle outlines the differences between substances and accidents What climate change has done is shift the weather from accidental to substantial Here s Aristotle Suppose for instance that in the season of the Cynosure the dog days of summer arctic cold were to prevail this we would regard as an accident whereas if there were a sweltering heatwave we would not And this is because the latter unlike the former is always or for the most part the case But these sorts of violent changes are exactly what global warming predicts So every accident of the weather becomes a potential symptom of a substance global warming So all of a sudden this wet stuff falling on my head is a mere feature of some much more sinister phenomenon that I can t see with my naked human eyes I need terabytes of RAM and extreme processing speed to model it in real time they were just able to do this in spring 2008 There is an even spookier problem with Aristotle s arctic summer If those arctic summers continue in any way and if we can model them as symptoms of global warming it is the case that there never was a genuine meaningful for us humans sweltering summer just a long period of sweltering that seemed real because it kept on repeating for say two or three millennia Global warming in other words plays a very mean trick It reveals that what we took to be a reliable world was actually just a habitual pattern a collusion between forces such as sunshine and moisture and us humans expecting such things at certain regular intervals and giving them names such as dog days We took weather to be real But in an age of global warming we see it as an accident a simulation of something darker more withdrawn climate As Harman argues world is always presence at hand a mere caricature of some real object What Ben Franklin and others in the Romantic period discovered was not really weather but rather a toy version of this real object a toy that ironically started to unlock the door to the real thing Strange weather patterns and carbon emissions caused scientists to start monitoring things that at first only appeared locally significant That s the old school definition of climate there s the climate in Peru the climate on Long Island but climate in general climate as the totality of derivatives of weather events in much the same way as inertia is a derivative of velocity climate as such is a beast newly recognized via the collaboration of weather scientists satellites government agencies and so on This beast includes the sun since it s infrared heat from the sun that is trapped by the greenhouse effect of gases such as CO2 So global warming is a colossal entity that includes entities that exist way beyond Earth s atmosphere and yet it affects us intimately right here and now Global warming is a prime example of what I am calling a hyperobject an object that is massively distributed in space time and that radically transforms our ideas of what an object is It covers the entire surface of Earth and most of the effects extend up to 500 years into the future Remember what life was like in 1510 You are walking on top of lifeforms Your car drove here on lifeforms The iron in Earth s crust is distributed bacterial excrement The oxygen in our lungs is bacterial out gassing Oil is the result of some dark secret collusion between rocks and algae and plankton millions and millions of years in the past When you look at oil you re looking at the past Hyperobjects are time stretched to such a vast extent that they become almost impossible to hold in mind And they are intricately bound up with lifeforms The spooky thing is we discover global warming precisely when it s already here It is like realizing that for some time you had been conducting your business in the expanding sphere of a slow motion nuclear bomb You have a few seconds for amazement as the fantasy that you inhabited a neat seamless little world melts away All those apocalyptic narratives of doom about the end of the world are from this point of view part of the problem not part of the solution By postponing doom into some hypothetical future these narratives inoculate us against the very real object that has intruded into ecological social and psychic space If there is no background no neutral peripheral stage set of weather but a very visible highly monitored publicly debated climate then there is no foreground Foregrounds need backgrounds to exist So the strange effect of dragging weather phenomena into the foreground as part of our awareness of global warming has been the gradual realization that there is no foreground The idea that we are embedded in a phenomenological lifeworld for instance tucked up like little hobbits in the safety of our burrow has been exposed as a fiction The specialness we granted ourselves as unravelers of cosmic meaning Heideggerian Dasein for instance falls apart since there is no meaningfulness possible in a world without a foreground background distinction Worlds need horizons and horizons need backgrounds which need foregrounds When we can see everywhere when I can Google Earth the fish in my mom s pond in her garden in London the world as a significant bounded horizoning entity disappears We have no world because the objects that functioned as invisible scenery for us as backdrops have dissolved World turns out to be an aesthetic effect based on a kind of blurriness and aesthetic distance This blurriness derives from an entity s ignorance concerning objects Only in ignorance can objects act like blank screens for the projection of meaning Red sky at night shepherd s delight is a charming old saw that evokes days when shepherds lived in worlds worlds bounded by horizons on which things occurred such as red sunsets The sun goes down the sun comes up of course now we know it doesn t so Galileo and Copernicus tore big holes in that particular notion of world Likewise as soon as humans know about climate weather becomes a flimsy superficial appearance that is a mere local representation of some much larger phenomenon that is strictly invisible You can t see or smell climate Given our brains processing power we can t even really think about it all that concretely You could say then that we still live in a world only massively upgraded True but now world means significantly less than it used to it doesn t mean significant for humans or even significant for conscious entities A simple experiment demonstrates plainly that world is an aesthetic phenomenon I call it The Lord of the Rings vs The Ball Popper test For this experiment you will need a copy of the second part of Peter Jackson s The Lord of the Rings trilogy You will also require a Playskool Busy Ball Popper made by Hasbro Now play the scene that I consider to be the absolute nadir of horror when Frodo captured by Faramir is staggering around the bombed out city Osgiliath when a Nazgul a Ringwraith attacks on a fell beast a terrifying winged dragon like creature Switch on the ball popper You will notice the inane tunes that the popper plays instantly undermine the coherence of Peter Jackson s narrative world The idea of world depends upon all kinds of mood lighting and mood music aesthetic effects that by definition contain a kernel of sheer ridiculous meaninglessness It s the job of serious Wagnerian worlding to erase the trace of this meaninglessness Jackson s trilogy surely is Wagnerian a total work of art or Gesamkunstwerk in which elves dwarves and men have their own languages their own tools their own architecture this is done to fascist excess as if they were different sports teams But it s easy to recover the trace of meaninglessness from this seamless world absurdly easy as the toy experiment proves Stupid Kids Toy 5 Wagnerian Tolkien Movie Nil What can we learn from this World a key concept in ecophenomenology is an illusion And objects for sure have a hidden weirdness In effect the Stupid Kids Toy translated the movie clashing with it and altering it in its own limited and unique way In Lakewood Colorado residents objected to the building of a solar array in a park in 2008 because it didn t look natural Objections to wind farms are similar not because of the risk to birds but because they spoil the view A 2008 plan to put a wind farm near a remote Scottish island was well scotched because residents of the island complained that their view would be destroyed This is truly a case of the aesthetics of Nature impeding ecology and a good argument for why ecology must be without Nature How come a wind turbine is less beautiful than an oil pipeline How come it spoils the view any more than pipes and roads You could see turbines as environmental art Wind chimes play in the wind some environmental sculptures sway and rock in the breeze Wind farms have a slightly frightening size and magnificence One could easily read them as embodying the aesthetics of the sublime rather than the beautiful But it s an ethical sublime that says We humans choose not to use carbon a choice visible in gigantic turbines Perhaps it s this very visibility of choice that makes wind farms disturbing visible choice rather than secret pipes running under an apparently undisturbed landscape a word for a painting not actual trees and water And now of course there are wind spires which do reproduce a kind of aesthetic distance common in landscape painting As a poster in the office of Mulder in The X Files used to say the truth is out there Ideology is not just in your head It s in the shape of a Coke bottle It s in the way some things appear natural rolling hills and greenery as if the Industrial Revolution had never occurred These fake landscapes are the original greenwashing What the Scots are saying in objecting to wind farms is not Save the environment but Leave our dreams undisturbed World is an aesthetic construct that

    common weal discipline has been reduced to a dry boring amoral and inhuman study full of pseudo formulas and cumbersome equations with little connection to ethical questions or social desirability Graph upon graph on page after page of Principles of Economics reveal just how far economics has drifted from the poetry and prose of its roots that often misread bible of global finance Adam Smith s The Wealth of Nations to the purposely obtuse and elite math of today Along the way a host of radical though not really radical just traditional thinkers tried to warn the logic freaks of economics that their profession was heading into a dead end Nobel Prize winner Wassily Leontief said Departments of economics are graduating a generation of idiot savants brilliant at esoteric mathematics yet innocent of actual economic life Author of The Origin of Economic Ideas Guy Routh wrote The standard economic texts are powerful instruments of disorientation for confusing the mind and preparing it for the acceptance of myths of growing complexity and unreality And the great American economist and historian Robert Heilbroner famously warned Before economics can progress it must abandon its suicidal formalism But to no avail for half a century these warnings have fallen on deaf ears So here we are Great Depression 2 0 and finally the mystery of economics is again awakening from its long logical slumber In the panic of escalating financial and ecological meltdown the old certitudes are crumbling and the logic freaks are everywhere in retreat In 2008 Bush era Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan the man who oversaw much of America s financial nose dive told the public those of us who have looked to the self interest of lending institutions to protect share holders equity myself included are in a state of shocked disbelief That s putting it mildly As the top economist in the nation for two decades groomed in 50 years of rigorous positivism such naïvety was as appalling as it was telling of the false science being sold to people What Greenspan s reflections show is that the Newtonian law of positivist economics the self interest principle the rational maximizer at the heart of economics is profoundly flawed It should now go without saying that carrying on with business as usual in economics would be equivalent to physics without relativity or thermodynamics For a scientific experiment to cross the threshold from speculation to truth it must pass the repeatability test For an outcome to be considered true one must be able make it happen again In their quest to be regarded as real scientists lab coat and all rather than ideologues the positivist economic theorists so far have only been able to reproduce one major economic phenomenon Depression This is a sign that the only provable thesis in their pseudo inquiry is that unrestrained market liberalism leads to short term financial gain for the wealthiest members of society followed by periods of economic collapse As the global economic and
