Kapital macht frei (Capital makes free)


If the power transition which we are living today can be summarized in the shift from a regime based on productive capital (work) to another based on financial capital, then it would not be unreasonable to adapt the Nazi motto Arbeit macht frei ('work makes free') to its neoliberal version Kapital macht frei ('capital makes free'). In both cases, work and capital are the instrument to, at the same time, liberate and subjugate, the vehicle that articulates the privilege of a few and, at the same time, the extermination of many. This crucial concurrence -this at the same time- is exactly what the systemic propaganda tries by all means to hide.
