28 Theses on Class Society

The following text was originally published in the first issue of the journal KOSMOPROLET (July 2007).

The provisional result of the history of capital in its advanced zones presents itself as a classless class society, in which the old workers‘ milieu has been dissolved into a generalized wagedependency: everywhere proletarianized individuals, nowhere the proletariat, not as a recognizable group of people and certainly not as a collective actor, as the negative, disruptive side of society. Sporadic labor conflicts do not turn into class struggles in which the future of society is at stake, since the old proletarian movement has been absorbed without a trace into the dominant order, and a new movement is not in sight.
