I'm by no means a new accelerationist - the Fully Automated Luxury Communism current springs from the academic 'manifesto for an accelerationist politics'https://syntheticedifice.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/accelerate.pdf
- but I think the question is worth engaging with. In this light isn't your defence of the job premised entirely on Capital's appropriation of Labor-power through commodification? Your response appears to offer the extant relations as somehow essential and in perpetuity.
The question posed is not, does Capital still require Labour to convert the dead-labour of the machine into surplus value? I think that's still unquestionably so - the PC definitely sublimates the exploitation of labour power into a surplus for appropriation. Under the sign of Capital, Machines are designed to get more from labour. That is the economic logic of Capital. The questions must be to invert the economic reason and ask, can economic relations be rethought to get more from machines? This seems to be to be entirely valid question to propose and engage with. Surely?
"The bourgeoisie cannot exist without constantly revolutionising the instruments of production, and thereby the relations of production, and with them the whole relations of society. Conservation of the old modes of production in unaltered form, was, on the contrary, the first condition of existence for all earlier industrial classes. Constant revolutionising of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind."
Maybe the answer is that techno-utopianism, a fair accusation that might be levelled at the new accelerations, leaves them drunk on idealism and looking at the conditions of life through beer-googles?
Maybe you can unpack your response a little for me?
