Just trolled the tedxbrum fb page by posting a link to the only critique I could find ( the tedxmet one spit house linked to, since googling for critiques on TED is damn near impossible ) and then posting “I’m sorry I cant afford to work for you if you’re not willing to pay me”. Now an old friend of mine is going to be pissed at me on new years eve because she’s volunteering with it for her future career and she’ll take it personally. Let’s see how long til it gets deleted, ought to have print screened dang. I’ll never be given a job.
In other news someone Charlie was at uni with asked if he could use a glitched 2010 screenie I had put on my fb for an article he’s submitting to something, about capitalist realism and the defeat of democracy, and confirmed he was reading nick land to support it so I no longer feel like my fb forwarding has been in vain and my general outlook was temporarily buoyed from a baseline of Absolute Shit.

Sometimes you have to give an agent the benefit of the doubt and presume that they’ve spent the last 60 years in a cultural vacuum with their eyes closed.

Quote reblogged from The Poverty of Theory with 28 notes
I will only add, to complicate things still a bit more, and to make you see how difficult, indeed well-nigh desperate, the predicament of the sociologist is, that the work of production of official problems, that is, those problems endowed with the sort of universality that is granted by the fact of being guaranteed by the state, almost always leaves room for what are today called experts. Among those so-called experts are sociologists who use the authority of science to endorse the universality, the objectivity, and the disinterestedness of the bureaucratic representation of problems. This is to say that any sociologist worthy of the name, i.e., who does what, according to me, is required to have some chance of being the subject of the problems she can pose about the social world, must include in her object the contribution that sociology and sociologists (that is, her own peers) make, in all candor, to the production of official problems - even if this is very likely to appear as an unbearable mark of arrogance or as a betrayal of professional solidarity and corporatist interests.
