TOWARDS THE MOVEMENT FOR BASIC INCOME [ASH AND CASH DISCUSSION] Print
Written by Bifo   

 

We disagree on a crucial point, I see: you consider congitarians as part of a bourgeoisie (what is bourgeoisie nowadays? Do you see any bourgeoisie around? I don't, I only see criminals and corruptors and pimps in the places of economic power and of political too.

But I agree with when you say that the interesting acto of something new could be the hungry and angry intellectuals of East Europe and Middle East. That's true, but do not forget that the hyper-stressed underpaid cognitarians who are working in the info-production in London are part of the same pack.
Anyway it's not so important what we share and what we disagree. Important is the urgency of a new transnational movement of sensibility and of intelligence against the neoliberal dictatorship.
The Greek crisis is opening a prospect of economic catastrophe, and of spreading barbarianism. But also opens a window to social imagination.

 

What is most striking and ennerving for me is the inability of the European workers (especially cognitive workers) to take the word, to launch a movement for basic income. 1000 euros for every person  from Vilnius to Malaga. This is Europe02 that we should be able to invent, and to spread, first of all in the consciousness of millions of young intellectuals.
