Why does he write as if he has no clue about the subject matter? Why is it so unclear, all over the place and convoluted?

>> No.12575766

Redpill me about this anon

>> No.12575775

The whole purpose of this thread is to also be redpilled. So far into the book I still don't get the hype

>> No.12575896

it's got a few pages of brilliance behind all the abstract marxist bullshit. debord was ahead of his time in seeing how the entertainment age shapes it subjects and has them chasing the transcendence of a fictive world, and social media has integrated the spectacle into our identities and social fabric in a way Debord couldn't have imagined.

So basically you are saying that I dont need to read it because he envisioned the world I already live and observe?

I read the Red and Black translation which is widely regarded as inferior to the more recent translations, but I probably can't be bollocksed to re-read a better translation.
If you think too much you're gonna live a miserable life in this day and age. If you conceptualise of the reasons for your misery in such a grand, vague and insurmountable a framework as Debord does with "the Spectacle", you're life will slowly transform into pointless and futile struggle and eventually a black suicide.

Sidenote, I think a parallel can be drawn between the late Debord believing that the Spectacle was insurmountable and the late leftcommunist Cammette believing Capitalism is insurmountable.

>> No.12576024

But economics is capitalism theology completely detached from reality, buying stuff every day would give me much information about the worlds economy than reading every single economics book ever written

what did marx write?

That's literally the subtitle of his book though, no need to be upset anon.

What are you fucks even talking about ITT

>> No.12577244

Complaining about the book being unclear, but refusing to set out what your actual problems with it are is hardly helpful anon. What did you find difficult about Debord (additionally, what translation do you have)?

>> No.12577626

dumbest comment on the internet

Same. Good shit anon.
