Example text

And though with Anderson we may question the degree to which Western Marxism’s educators were in fact in solidarity with their students and the oppressed more generally, inasmuch that their personal situations had little in the way of common cause with the world’s oppressed, the objective of Western Marxism as a whole was nevertheless perfectly consistent with Freire’s: it, too, wanted to transform the consciousness of the people so that they in turn would begin the process of transforming their objective reality.

Why vote when the choice is basically between two parties that in the end stalemate one another? Why pay 25 dollars for the large-screen viewing when we can wait for the cam recording? Are these forms of cynicism or resistance? It is hard to tell. A both|and logic persists – resistant cynicism perhaps. There is a certain uneasiness, I must confess, in my own attempt to justify a ‘micropolitical pedagogy’ of cinema as culled from Deleuze’s cinematic writings in the mid-1980s, especially as he developed this possibility in his time-image cinema book where the unthought and the unthinkable, the so-called ‘spiritual automaton’ of the non-dialectical cinematic machine, is given the task of performing such pedagogical work with the image.

Basically, their position, which I will expand upon in what follows, is that consciousness-raising, the catch cry of the radical 1960s, did not work in the way Marxists thought it would. People became conscious of their oppression and more importantly their interests but did not rise up. No doubt this was in large part because in contrast to Freire’s Latin America, people in the West generally did not see themselves as the oppressed, and in many ways they were not. For a start, they were vastly better off materially than at any other time in history.
