Who is this describing?

From this article (don’t read it yet though!):

  1. “barely capable of distinguishing themselves from the consuming desire to work at all times”
  2. “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”
  3. “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”
  4. “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.
