In her book, Capital is Dead, McKenzie Wark poses a provocative thought experiment: what if we are not in capitalism anymore but something worse? Jodi Dean responds to Wark’s question with a tendential analysis: what tendencies do we see leading us away from capitalism and toward something worse? Expropriation, domination, and force have intensified to such an extent that it no longer makes sense to posit free and equal actors meeting in the labor market. New businesses seek revenues from rent and debt rather than production. But tendencies are not all-determining. There is always a space for, a need for, political action. If Capitalism is indeed tending toward a kind of Neo-Fuedalism, then our choice will not be, as Rosa Luxemburg framed it, between socialism and barbarism, but between communism and neo-fuedalism. Let’s see where this line of thought leads.

Eva Cherniavsky, Jason Read, Jodi Dean, Philip Wohlstetter, Gus Burns (moderator)
