Market and the Army

The merit of Marx is that he suddenly produces a qualitative change in the history of social thought. He interprets history, understands its dynamic, predicts the future, but in addition to predicting it, he expresses a revolutionary concept: the world must not only be interpreted, it must be transformed.–Che Guevara

It was Marx who wrote that what is subjective of the bourgeois is actually objective ( Marx mockingly says “The so-called objective. Subjective (moral among others). The philosophical.”) or in other words in Deleuze’s tone “what is subjective essence of bourgeois is this very wealth”. All concept of bourgeois culture and morality emits from it, this is the ground of everything- ground of ground.  Thus Marx would say Cultural histories are only histories of religions and of states. But Marx goes more deepr into it decoding more truths, he writes in political economy that “War developed earlier than peace; the way in which certain economic relations such as wage labour, machinery etc. develop earlier, owing to war and in the armies etc., than in the interior of bourgeois society. The relation of productive force and relations of exchange also especially vivid in the army.” So forget that its just a market phenomena and concerned with only business, what is known as market is actually grounded in army, either, world wars won’t happen for the market share.  Marx predicts it before the first world war. This is very important paragraph to be read carefully and to be contemplated.  If Deleuze is important Marxist for us it is because he decodes the deterritorialization and reterritorialization tactics of the capitalists in his texts in Marx direction. Whole capitalists movement is this constant movement of deterritorialization and reterritorialization sometimes  in a circular way.  Its example is its cultural repetition and always its recourse to the old in the time of crisis. The D/G are the first materialist Marxist psychoanalysts who try to understand psychological aspect of capitalist production. But I am  not gonna here to explain it.

The relation of productive force and relations of exchange also especially vivid in the army.

Cultural histories are only histories of religions and of states. –Marx
