An anti-manifesto to Digitality by Jonathan Beller

Who incidentally is an alumnus of the Literature Program

The Digital Ideology
<http://digitallabor.org/speakers1/jonathan_beller&gt;
” ‘The Digital’ has become the mantra for all things contemporary and as such signals that the capitalist market is present in the very articulation of digitality. We can be sure that unless we ourselves develop an antagonistic relation to “the digital” and “digital culture” our creativity, if that’s what it is, will continue to serve that system which structurally guarantees the accumulation of wealth by a tiny minority and the intensifying immiseration of the global majority. Thus, from the standpoint of social justice, any theory of labor/value that does not reckon with structural inequality and the larger contradictions of capitalism is pernicious. ”

He was in the Program before Alex Galloway came.
