From this article (don’t read it yet though!):
- “barely capable of distinguishing themselves from the consuming desire to work at all times”
- “neurotic people who deploy a series of practices that coincide quite neatly with the requirements of the neoliberal, predatory, continually mutating capitalism of the every moment”
- “people who behave, communicate, and innovate in the same manner as those who spend their days trying to capitalize every moment and exchange of daily life”
- “they offer no alternative to this”
Academics? Journalists? Video game designers? Artists? It would be an interesting exercise to collect self-pathologising descriptions for each group and to study the overlap.
