Mark Fisher, in Capitalist Realism, writes about how adept capitalism is at absorbing and redirecting all forms of anti-capitalist resistance. Adbusting becomes another form of advertising. "No logo" becomes a logo in itself.

We will miss neoliberalism when it's gone. And I say that bitterly and sincerely.
I wonder if neo-liberalism is the last fully human system of economy. Whatever is next will either be more machine than human. "Humans are the sex organs of the machine world" will be replaced with "Humans are the strap-on of the machine world."
