Another lovely reading group conversation in the bag.
How free can you be if you're still inside a cage?
For next week we will be reading Social and Humane Liberalism, stopping before the Postscript. As always, hope to hear from you! :)
Holy shit 200lb draw weight!?
Seriously, Cube has a much more astute understanding of the nihilism of late stage capital than Platform. Platform is essentially a primer for proto-Marxists, and its understanding of capitalist relations is still essentially that of the 19th/20th century. Cube, on the other hand, has a grasp on the transfiguration of late-neoliberalism into what Sayaka Valencia calls "gore capitalism".
Whereas Platform remains sentimental in its scale and its focus on human understanding/action -- the motivations are still human-centric; the solution is still some version of solidarity and revolutionary self-sacrifice -- Cube simulates the experience of being born into a system from which there is no evident escape, no history, no explanation, and no understandable governing logic; just pure violence, exploitation, oppression, with no discernable meaning or reason or solution.
@athousandgateaux Plus when that guy gets cut into little cubes it's super nasty and cool
