(NB: no flaming of Vaneigem in this thread please. i'm trying to understand him, not hear a million different lefty hack's opinions of him. If this happens, please make a new thread for it.)
Last night (well this morning at 6am, battling insomnia), I was reading "The Revolution of Everyday Life" and in the chapter "Abstracted mediations, mediated abstractions", what's he going on about when he says that language is a tool of Power against the proleteriat, and concludes: "We will have to speak until we can do without words". Is he talking about the importance of theorising to the working class, but only as a means to an end (that being physical revolutionary action)?? Or is it some shit primmos use to justify grunting??
I know I may not be an intellectual heavyweight so gimme a break here. Cheers.
