Bad Subjects #86:
The End of Memory
Neither history nor literature have ended, but memory is fading fast. Francis Fukayama wrote in 1992 that history had ended because global techno-capitalism had silenced all opposing ideologies, but global techno-capitalism was, in fact, only doing so much, for so few. The end of memory does not signify the end of any ideology or the supremacy of any ideology, but merely the end of being interested in or able to remember, which means the end of any usuable critique of Market Rule. The end of memory has already made "the new Viet Nam war", this century's US war in Iraq, possible. It has also made possible the reappearance of the extreme Right behind the 1990s Contract with America, now called The Tea Party.
