Wait a minute, dystopia has not arrived yet? - Digital identities and the ability to act collectively, an interview with Andrew Feenberg

Abstract : This chapter presents interview with Andrew Feenberg, conducted by Armen Khatchatourov and Pierre‐Antoine Chardel. The supporters of Marxist revolutionary aspirations see in capitalist movement a one‐way journey towards dystopia and its brave new world, all the more as the industrialization and manipulation of culture are added to recuperation. Interaction between individuals and technology is constantly increasing, as evidenced by the transition from television to digital devices. These same individuals are, in return, as it were "recuperated" through the logic of Big Data. The system, including its technological dimensions, seems to favor an increasing atomization of individuals, even subjectivities themselves. The treatment of Uber's "employees", outside the regular framework of employment, feeds a new kind of socialization process. In some countries, Uber drivers have brought lawsuits to gain recognition as full employees.
