Surrender On the contrary if our world is dead then the space is open for another to appear a world where apocalypse can shake us out of our zombie like contemporary existence The second coming of Communism will have nothing to do with 1917 Apocalypse has to be conceived of as a metaphor and Communism is a metaphor too the metaphor of the possible deployment of the potentials of the mi Some parts not altogether convincing but the closing chapter than makes up for it

    I don't know if this is a masterwork but this is one of the most relevant books to our current struggle against mass violence Berardi already tackled mass killings in Heroes and The Second Coming offers a look at what is really behind these killings on an ideological level A triumph of unreason and idiocy in the form of white supremacy made possible and amplified by our usage of social networks Ultimately the only thing that stands in between our collective solution to this sort of apocalyptic scenario we find ourselves in is our greed conformism cynicism and ignorance Each one of these ualities subdues our willingness to do something about the wave of far right extremism we find ourselves engulfed by the shit storm

    “Don’t stop thinking because the unpredictable may soon need some thought and this is our job thinking in times of apocalyptic trauma”According to Berardi we have entered the apocalypse We live in a chaotic world overloaded with information and mental suffering Our ability to assess information critically has dwindled as we rely and on automation ie Google This flawed development has ushered North America into the Trump age; an age marked by racism nationalism and stupidity Corporations have built their empires and capitalism remains a trap Communism not the Communism of 1917 but a metaphor Berardi uses to describe the emancipation from an exchange between oppressed and oppressor between worker and employer presents a liberation from the Nazi like grip of an age where everything is automated from cognition Google to friendship Facebook and opens up broader possibilities for the potential of societyBerardi claims that 1968 was the peak of human evolution meaning the moment which technology knowledge and social consciousness reached their maximum point of convergence Since then technology has continued to expand while social consciousness has decreased Technology increasingly gains power over social life and society loses it’s power over technology The increasing technological landscape has resulted in the expansion of the ‘infosphere’ All this information flowing out of every corner creates a state of info nervous saturation within ourselves The critical mind is unable to function in this state The deterioration of people’s ability to think critically and the deterioration of education have resulted in the crumbling of the collective social mind along with overall depression despair and aggressiveness Chaos abounds but with chaos hidden possibilities often reveal themselvesBerardi explains that the expansion of the infosphere the acceleration of info nervous stimulation and the increasing inability to emotionally or critically process information has created an ‘ignorance boom’ and the deterioration of daily life for the majority worldwide “humankind is officially entering the age of dementia massive support for racism nationalism and religious war”Berardi acknowledges that Trump openly supports racism nationalism and religious war and links ‘Trumpism’ with the old fascismNazism the racist cult of supremacy When Trump uttered the words “Make America great again’ it actually means ‘make the white race superior again in the spirit of the Ku Klux Klan’ Thus creating a divide among the Western working class and the oppressed populations from colonized countries and threatening the very roots of peace “Western workers are following nationalist agendas in order to avert the effects of globalization and resorting to nationalist and racist forms of identification’ Berardi further discusses the permanent transfer of our social resources to the banking system This transfer has allowed financial corporations to establish the ‘rules of the game’ while networked governance inscribes those rules forcing workers to work and be paid less ‘in favour of capital accumulation’ Berardi continuously uses the Nazi metaphor According to Gunther Anders the main feature to Nazism is ‘automated inhumanity’ He explains that Auschwitz did not exterminate individuals or people with relationships families and futures rather it was simply an industrialized machine for extermination He compares this with the financial machine one that automatically does its job despite the lives it may destroy The impoverishment of daily life through the exploitation of deterritorialized underpaid labour has lead to the saturation of mental suffering in America “Mental suffering is American than Coca Cola American than stars and stripes Mental suffering depression anxiety fear paranoia impotent rage and drug addiction is saturating Amerca’s life”Today the political exit from capitalism seems unthinkable We are bombarded by information images ideas and fears We are living in chaos however Berardi is here to remind us that capitalism is only made insurmountable by our inability to imagine Berardi’s Communism is a potential escape from our world of financial domination and potential global war

    'Caminante no hay camino se hace camino al andar' There is no path; the only path is our walking togetherBifo asks that we follow the signs of the second coming of communism that emerge from the apocalyptical moraine of cynicism
