You want to reappropriate life for yourselves?
In the meantime, destroy the bosses that are in you, destroy the capitalistic characteristics within you. Destroy yourselves as our bosses. Destroy yourselves as the inexhaustible vacuums of our domestic labor.†
from «Le operaie della casa», June-July, ‘76
†Yes, vaccuums. Vacuum cleaners. Aspiratori. (As in, that which gobbles up without limit.) A remarkable line, as it figures men both as the endless void that swallows up unpaid labor and as the very tool – the industrially produced machine – that’s part of that labor, which allegedly “lightens the load” and “makes housework a breeze!” No, not a breeze. A tremendous sucking of time.
oh love those Italian Autonomistas.
