I’m really trash for the production of Taylor’s music. Like, all the layering and instruments and synths. My brain tries to isolate all of the vocals when I’m listening to a track and it’s so fucking calming but also overwhelming to my senses. She just blows me away with her genius.
Real communism consists in creating the conditions for human renewal: activities in which people can develop themselves as they produce, organizations in which the individual is valuable rather than functional. Accomplishing this requires a movement – to change the character of work itself. And redefining work as a creative activity can only happen as individuals emerge from stifled, emotionally blocked rhythms of constraint. It will take more than the will to change, in the current situation; to resist neutralization itself demands desire.
