Millions of proletarians not only take pride in “their” work but they identify with it. And they confuse their necessities with those of Capital, internalizing the capitalist social relation in such a way that even when they want to fight against what they perceive exploits and oppresses them, they continue reproducing it. The dominant discourse and the everyday capitalist routine have “integrated” the exploited to such a degree that they supppose to resist commerce precisely by engaging in commerce. Many dissatisfied proletarians suppose to fight through work, the production of commodities, the circulation of money, and the valuation of life in general! It’s gotten to the point, that when we criticize the capitalist means of production in its self–managerial facade they feel profoundly offended and attacked. 

If we are willing to openly debate the proposal of self–management it is because there were and there are shared spaces, not only of struggle, but of mere subsistence.
