The Infinity of Capitalism? A Question of Poesy-Inspired Glory…. [early draft]

*The Infinity of Capitalism? A Question of Poesy-Inspired Glory….*

by Maxwell Clark
Jean-Francois Lyotard, in his grandiose romp of a *Libidinal Economy*,

represented (+) by the state of the situation (+). It is thus counted twice
in its place: once by the structure (count-as-one) and once by the
metastructure (count-of-the-count).” —Alain Badiou, Being and Event
