Fenris 23 has undertaken the daunting task, at the request of Doloras LaPicho at Chaos Marxism of explaining Deleuze and Guattari “in terms a factory worker would not only understand but would be interested in.” Daunting in part because I’m not sure how one can approximate what “a factory worker” is interested in or what they are capable of understanding. I’m not sure if being a college educated tech worker puts me in a better or worse position in terms of understanding D&G, but I think Fenris does a good job at introducing these concepts I’ve been spending the past few months trying to wrap my brain around. Here is the rough draft for the first part:
Their project for Capitalism and Schizophrenia was psychological emancipation of the individual and cooperative social organization so they are very compatable with both Marxism and Occult practice.
Deleuze and Guattari, however, are not a totalized whole that can be understood and explained. Rather their work is many things subject to many understandings. One purpose of studying Deleuze and Guattari is to change how you think. It is an initiation. Their concepts are not a system to be understood but rather tools we can apply or put to work.
