BEARDED PROSECUTOR

Let’s replace the term critique by an attitude closer to what we effectively experience in our current relations with capital; in the office, in the street, in the cinema, on the road, on holiday, in museums, hospitals and libraries, that is to say, a horrified fascination for the entire range of the dispositifs of jouissance. It must be said: the Little Girl Marx invents critique (with her fat bearded prosecutor) in order to defend herself from this horrified fascination, which the disorder of the drives also provokes in us.
