Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

we are borrowing our lives from people who disdain those lives inspo / anti-capitalism

[...\ The places in which your life takes place, the places you love so radically, belong to wealthy corporations, to a tiny handful of families with unthinkably old money, to the Sacklers and their industry of death, to the Catholic Church, to NYU, to Google, to Donald Trump. We are borrowing ou...

carrying in their slow blue hours inspo / setting

This is the time of year to love New York if you are going to love it. Springtime in this city is a cheat code, an overripe and irresistible metaphor. The light is all at once kind, the afternoons that float into evening are longer, carrying in their slow blue hours the memory of every past sprin...

time to get politicized around non-work

Perhaps, during crises, we can hatch alternative programs for survival, other methods by which we might not so much "earn a living" as live a living. Perhaps we can self-downsize or even refrain from work itself, and at the same time address a paradox that goes back at least to Max Weber: work is...

a system of repression and repetition

[...] one huge mass of people is confined to either manual torment or mental boredom, while another much smaller group monopolizes skills, dominates knowledge and expertise, and prospers from that domination and monopolization. This division of labor is pernicious in the sense that the real possi...

the abolition of work

the abolition of work will only be emancipatory if it also allows the development of autonomous activity. The abolition of work doesn't mean abolition of time and effort, the desire for activity, the pleasure of creation, the need to cooperate with others and be of some use to the community. In...

to regain power over their own lives

[...] those who don't rule, the bulk of us, are an assorted and fragmented layering of disparate peoples who are neither conscious of class nor motivated to act in the name of any class. Nevertheless, these peoples are often motivated by a desire to act against a ruling class, against a system ...

the limit of power's political desire to control totally

[...] The non-coincidence reveals the limit of power's political desire to control totally, of its quest for ultimate and indomitable mastery. No system of control can ever be ultimate and indomitable mastery. No system of control can ever be total, can ever be without possibility, contingency, i...

interpellation

All totalizing systems that interpellate individual subjects to coincide strictly with their chosen role as social beings always "expulse" a certain residue

a brute force that doesn't need unmasking by anyone

[...] Do people around the world need Marx to reveal the root of their misery, to correct the illusions and lacunas of their vision of everyday reality? Don't they know this all too well themselves? Aren't they bludgeoned by a system that's all too obvious to them, that has absolutely no desire t...

the greatest bourgeois fantasy of all

[...] how much of the bourgeois order is based upon fantasy, upon a dream world in which ruling fantasies become true because those who rule really believe they're true, because they make these fantasies come true. Through active will and not a little force, the bourgeoisie turns its economic p...

libertine

Politics should be like poetry: something hot, the voice of hotness from the margins, libertine excess, anti-science, red-hot bubbling altermarxisme
