The residua of value, or, Yet more studies in a dying culture

“Villages shoot up and cities where this class digs for ore, / Dead & unpeopled in a flash when it moves away. So quick / A boom was never seen before, nor so quick a bust.”

Brecht, The Manifesto, tr. Darko Suvin

“The various forms of organisation [bourgeois society] has blindly erected, as an animal tunnelling for gold might throw up great mounds of earth, are all haphazard and not understood.”

Christopher Caudwell, ‘Liberty’, in Studies in a Dying Culture
