“A ‘postmodern’ boss insists that he is not a master but just a coordinator of our joint creative efforts, the first among equals; there should be no formalities among us, we should address him by his nickname, he shares a dirty joke with us … but during all this, he remains our master. In such a social link, relations of domination function through their denial: in order to operative, they have to be ignored.” Slavoj Žižek, In Defense of Lost Causes (via class-struggle-anarchism)

The White Daze

dagwolf:

The eyewitness account of M Brown’s murder has cop, D Wilson, pacing back and forth in a daze after murdering the young man, hovering over his body. Of course he’s dazed. He just woke up to the real conditions of existence for black people in the US that he implemented in the most violent way possible. Welcome to reality good cop! You are the fucking problem. That’s how it works. There are no good cops.

La Commune (Paris, 1871) Another Peter Watkins for you.  I had to turn the english captions on, FYI.  From Rotten Tomatoes:

Noted filmmaker and media critic Peter Watkins directs this mammoth six-hour-long look at the legendary Paris Commune of 1871. Following the humiliating defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian War, the reign of Napoleon III collapsed in the resulting public foment. While a new regime headed under the Government of National Defense tried to shore up power, a band of commoners took the reigns of power for themselves and created the Paris Commune, a government defiantly separate from the state operating under a sort of proto-Marxist ethos. Inevitably, the Commune was brutally suppressed by French troops. Watkins’ treatment of the event juxtaposes the present with the past — modern day CNN-style reporting with historical fact.
