Marxism evolved in a world in which large industrial workshops gathered crowds of workers, and made possible large unions. A world in which the Enlightenment fully maintained its prestige as a progressive and enlightening ideology, allowing the existence of cultured workers, of libraries and labor press, of intellectuals arising from the same working world. We live in a world in which the disaggregation of production chains removes the specific physical basis from which the unions were possible, which leads to a progressive weakening of the union organizations. A world in which the Enlightenment has lost much of its appeal, and the system of social communication can almost completely cope the field of real working class culture. A world in which Taylorization of subjectivity promotes behavioral patterns of strong subjective integration between capital and labor, leading the classical reformism of the labor movement to an end of simple collaboration, to the integration of workers into the corporate spirit of large enterprises.
