It goes without saying that most of the working class would be better off having
their productivity unshackled from Empire only if that meant that they were
unshackled from their productivity. I want to conclude by offering a brief diagnosis
of how Negri has wound up in this blind alley. He is, I believe, a victim of two
things. The first is the undue limitation he places on the refusal of work strategy.

Marxism, Productivism, and the Refusal of Work If hard work were really such a
great thing, the rich would have kept it all to themselves. UNION ACTIVIST A
cultural dominant the work ethic may be; seamless and incontrovertible it is
certainly not. The previous chapter touched on one reaction to the exclusions
enacted by the work ethic—namely, demands for inclusion that draw on
alternative work ethics as tools of insubordination— and considered both the
advantages and limitations ...

Harriet Anthony may well have been one of these people. "I am just as free and
just as good as you ...
