of media A Going death the psychoanalytic Postal: social and drive reading

"If the punchy, claustrophobic anti-sociality of platforms in early lockdown proposed a really black perspective for the future, the Action for Dark Lives road uprising of the late spring believed like their wondrous opposite—the next by which tools were responding to and being organized by the functions on a lawn, rather than these functions being structured by and shaped to the requirements of the platforms. This is anything value our time and devotion, something which exceeded our compulsion to create, something that—for a moment, at least—the Twittering Device could not swallow.

Not so it was not trying. As people in the roads toppled statues and struggled police, persons on the tools altered and refashioned the uprising from a street movement to a thing for the usage and representation of the Twittering Machine. What was occurring off-line needed to be accounted for, defined, evaluated, and processed. Didactic story-lectures and pictures of effectively stacked antiracist bookshelves appeared on Instagram. On Facebook, the typical pundits and pedants sprang up challenging details for each mantra and justifications for each and every action. In these concern trolls and response people, Seymour's chronophage was literalized. The cultural market does not just consume our time with endless stimulus and algorithmic scrolling; it takes our time by making and selling individuals who occur and then be told, people to whom the world has been developed anew every morning, persons for whom every settled sociological, clinical, and political discussion of modernity must be rehashed, rewritten, and re-accounted, now with their participation.

These people, using their just-asking questions and vapid open words, are dullards and bores, pettifoggers and casuists, cowards and dissemblers, time-wasters of the worst sort. But Seymour's guide suggests something worse about people, their Facebook and Facebook interlocutors: That we need to waste our time. That, however significantly we may complain, we find satisfaction in countless, round argument. That we get some type of pleasure from boring debates about "free speech" and "cancel culture." That individuals seek oblivion in discourse. In the machine-flow atemporality of social media marketing, that appears like no good crime. If time is an endless source, why not spend a couple of ages of it with a couple New York Situations op-ed columnists, repairing all American believed from first maxims? But political and economic and immunological crises pack on one another in sequence, over the backdrop roar of ecological collapse. Time isn't infinite. None of us are able to afford to spend what's remaining of it dallying with the ridiculous and bland."
