GETTING SOME THINKING (2) >>> "If the students [May '68] were the detonators, the media were the resonators. [...] But this sort of argument has been constructed in the absence of analysis. I would say the contrary that the media have never discharged their responsibility with more efficiency, and that, indeed, in their function of habitual social control, they were right on top of th action. This is because, beneath the disarrey of their routine content, they preserved their form; and this form, regardless of the context is what inexorably connects them with the system of power. By broadcasting the events in the abstract universality of public opinion, they imposed a sudden and inordinate development on the movement of events; and through this forced and anticipated extension, they deprived the original movement of its own rythm and of its meaning. In a word: they short-circuited it. [...] But transgression and subversion never get "on the air" without being subtly negated as they are: transformed into models, neutralised into signs, they are evisherated of their meaning."
