It is impossible at the present time to write history without using a whole range of concepts directly or indirectly linked to Marx’s thought and situating oneself within a horizon of thought which has been defined and described by Marx. One might even wonder what difference there could ultimately be between being a historian and being a Marxist.
You could argue that the different eras of human history have been defined by a few key innovations. Advancements in agriculture some 10,000 years ago allowed our nomadic ancestors to finally stay put in one place. Alexander Graham Bell and his rivals changed telecommunications forever in the 19th century with the advent of the phone. The Internet’s rise in the ’90s sparked an era of boundless information, and the smartphone in 2007 put that information in the palm of our hands.
All of which is sure be to eclipsed by what could be mankind’s greatest achievement to date. Behold: The 3D pizza printer.
the world is gonna end. there’s nothing more to aspire.
Kant’s concept of the noumenon or “thing-in-itself” is … an objet petit a: an attempt to give positive body to the radical negativity of essence. The subject seeks to identify an actual object to explain his desire. The subject attributes her desire to objet petit a, although the true desire of man is the desire of the Other - i.e. to be recognized in intersubjective relations. … The logic of desire … is retrospective - desire precedes its “cause.” The subject does not desire because he lacks an object. … She hypothesizes that, because desire is present, something must be absent. She therefore tries to identify a specific absent thing to explain desire. This fantasy is reassuring because it purports to give a simple account of … the universal sense of alienation …. [This fantasy] is the vain hope that the desire’s flame can be quenched.

the rope just gives him your money before he’s hung
“justice begins when I remember the faceless many left in shadow in [love’s] privileging of the One. … justice … has to be blind; it must disregard the privileged One whom I “really understand”

“The foam grows to a thickness of up to four feet … a vile-looking substance seeping up from between the slats that form the floor of a hog barn …
And here’s the catch: Scientists can’t explain the phenomenon.”
Yeah, sorry to gross everyone out, but we figured you’d rather know about the existence of unexplained exploding poop foam (UEPF) than not know about it.
