How does the revolutionary insert themselves into the capitalist totality? What kind of totality is capitalism, anyway? It has a definite beginning, but is it possible that it is logically determined to stretch into infinity? How do we extricate ourselves from this totality? As a totality based on a particular mode of production, capitalism can be located in its physical residue—infrastructure in the form of technology and architecture. Is technology neutral in the class struggle? We enter into all of this and more via a discussion on contemporary COVID politics and some reflections on the past summer, and what might come of the second summer of the Pandemic Age.
