a long time ago, today

Saw K. today, for the first time in a long time. I've always been a little in love with her, but today, for the first time, I was struck to discover that I'm a little in love with her.

Socialism is neither historically necessary nor inevitable; what Marx/Engels/Luxemburg failed to consider is the means by which barbarism can, by virtue of its barbarity, replicate itself unto a more ultimate demise.

This potential for self-replication can also be construed as a weakness; our foresight of this 'more ultimate demise' makes possible a return to the anti-barbaric. That is, the very inevitability of capital's encroachments is the thing which makes it evitable.

Self-analysis and the anticapitalist impulse

Why Do Intellectuals Oppose Capitalism?
by Robert Nozick (from a Cato Institute Policy Report, January/February 1998)

Interesting thoughts relating to social hierarchy, resentment and schooling, as well as the allocation of resources under capitalism and the possibly contradictory nature of the anticapitalist impulse as the product of a feeling of superiority on the part of the intellectual classes.


Might these posited motivations offer a unique source of powerful analysis?

Capital Infection
