sentences i get to write in my diss:
Perhaps when Marx writes about the “vampire-like” quality of capital, the way it “lives only by sucking living labour, and lives the more, the more labour it sucks” (342), we ought to think of capital as the affect vampire, sucking the capacity, force, and power from the depleted bodies it leaves behind.
So then to reapproach capital…. We have to remove the vampiric aspect… We have to work with love… To stop to work with capital.

Marx + Deleuze’s Spinoza, for me:
In a Spinozan framework, capitalism is an organization of society that conducts relations such that encounters are essentially never joyful encounters; instead, capitalism systematically lessens the capacity to affect and be affected.
