Micropolitics – why it’s legitimate to turn (more or less) all thought you have into a case study on capitalism and power relations

Featuring the ideas of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. Very accessible introduction to great critical thinkers.

“Is there a real difference between my tiny personal affairs and my politics? D&G’s radical answer here is: no. Not really. While it is hard to see any political significance to my left sock first rule, this is only because it doesn’t seem to affect anyone else. It still says something  […] about the way my desire is investing itself in “the world.” This is the idea of Micropolitics; there is ultimately nothing that is not political, because desire is always embedded to a broader social field.”
