nice one, bruvva.

"In contrast to the logic of false consciousness, which cannot truly know itself, the search for
critical truth about the spectacle must also be a true critique. It must struggle in practice among
the irreconcilable enemies of the spectacle, and admit that it is nothing without them. By rushing
into sordid reformist compromises or pseudorevolutionary collective actions, those driven by an
abstract desire for immediate effectiveness are in reality obeying the ruling laws of thought,
adopting a perspective that can see nothing but the latest news. In this way delirium reappears in
the camp that claims to be opposing it. A critique seeking to go beyond the spectacle MUST KNOW HOW TO WAİT."
