ReneeDion - The City That Sleeps

Well... Columbus is no Cincinnati, but the host city of THE Ohio State University has produced some nice musicians - ReneeDion being at the top of that list. Much like Carlitta Durand's Songs From Carli, The City that Sleeps combines hip hop influenced production with the delicate yet raw vocals that demand the listeners full attention.

CAPITALISM’S INNER LOGIC OF SELF DESTRUCTION

In Labor and Monopoly Capital (1974), Harry Braverman echoes the prophetic theories of Karl Marx by tracing the historical development of capitalist production. 

Marx predicted: “the needs of a constantly expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the whole surface of the globe. It must nestle everywhere, settle everywhere, and establish connections everywhere.[1]” As capital established connections everywhere, Marx posited that capitalism would create “a world after its own image,[2]” and Braverman connects this prophesy with contemporary socioeconomic conditions created as capitalism has, in fact, nestled everywhere.


Post-modern man now lives in a state of total administration[3]rendered one-dimensional (Marcuse 1964). The one-dimensional man is both a product and a cause of the intensification of capitalism's domination of the self in the era of monopoly capitalism (Braverman 1974). Capitalism alienates man from his labor, himself, and his society. Alienation lies at the center of capitalism’s self-destructive nature.

The two main innovations of capitalism were the division of labor and Mr. Ford's assembly line. These two innovations led to a few changes in the nature of production:
  1. Allowed manufacturers to produce large surpluses (supply > demand) with less money, 
  2. Increased the need for new consumers in order to increase profits. 
  3. Simplified the workers duties, increased the expected production levels, and decreased wages 
  4. Divided labor and consolidated management
The capitalists implemented scientific management theories in order to optimize production and capitalized on new transportation technologies to expand the market for their goods nationally and internationally. As capitalism has progressed labor has been divided while management has been consolidated:

"The mass of humanity is subjected to the labor process for the purposes of those who control it rather than for any general purposes of humanity as such…. Machinery comes into the world not as a servant of humanity, but as the instrument of those to whom the accumulation of capital gives the ownership of those machines… production may be controlled not by the direct producer but by the owners and representatives of capital."[4]
