The feral underclass hits the streets: On the English riots and other ordeals

By Rocamadur/Blaumachen 12 September 2012

The dangerous classes represent what has become universal as a dynamic for the proletariat at large: the lumpenisation of the wage relation. There is no longer a ground for a workers’ identity or proletarian community, nothing to be liberated, no craftsmanship or human nature. The ephemeral ‘us’ of the rioters, this transient subject of destructive practices that appears momentarily only to rapidly dissolve, is the impossibility of a permanence of the Subject. The overcoming of the limit of struggles is today the attack on the very existence of the class of proletarians.

ROBIN HOOD IN REVERSE

By Vile & Arrogant 22 May 2018

The V&A’s butchered chunk of Robin Hood Gardens is a vile and arrogant monument to the social cleansing of London. Architecture, or a reified slice of it, is preserved and celebrated for aesthetic contemplation at the very same moment that it is destroyed as people’s homes. It’s an obscene spectacle, where working class housing is usurped for middle class pleasure, social vandalism whitewashed by the circuits of cultural heritage.
