The Fragment On Machines

The Fragment On Machines

people try to put us down

the economy's burned to the ground

my car is broke and i am too

i hope i die before my loans come due

 

“Hence the workers' struggle against the machinery. What was the living worker's activity becomes the activity of the machine. Thus the appropriation of labour by capital confronts the worker in a coarsely sensuous orm; capital absorbs labour into itself 'as though its body were by love possessed.'” - The Grundrisse, Karl Marx
