Notes on “[Notes] Guy Debord: Society of the Spectacle”

From the blog Avoiding the Void

Debord plato Nietzsche

 From Simon Critichely’s Ethics, Politics, Subjectivity are worth a look:

From Simon Critichely’s Ethics, Politics, Subjectivity

From a panel debate on The Society of the Spectacle:
“Man in audience: -When I listen to you it’s like a Bible reading.
Will Self: -Bible reading is cool, man!
Man in audience: -Yeah! That’s why I came here!”

Something like this would be my response to the Plato-Nietzsche critique of Debord in the screen shots above.

Apply ‘please’, ‘thank you’ and ‘sorry’ to all of your actions and towards all beings and you’ll see through the spectacle. This understanding has changed my life quite considerably recently. As one person, you have the ability to change and to help those things that are suffering right in front of you. If we stop thinking about grand notions of change and start to look at small changes, the big changes will come. It’s quit simple, but it does and has worked for me.
