Hello Marxists et al; I'm very excited. Our paper (I'm Kirkland) on Xenoanthropology and Star Trek Discovery is up at The Geek Anthropologist! I hope you will check it out, and please, retweet if you can! I would love to actually get people to see it.
"Pseudo-cyclical time is a time transformed by industry. The time which has its basis in the production of commodities is itself a consumable commodity which includes everything that previously (during the phase of dissolution of the old unitary society) was differentiated into private life, economic life, political life. All the consumable time of modern society comes to be treated as a raw material for varied new products which impose themselves on the market as uses of socially organized time.

"The spectacle, like modern society, is at once unified and divided. Like society, it builds its unity on the disjunction.

"At the moment of economic abundance, the concentrated result of social labor becomes visible and subjugates all reality to appearance, which is now its product. Capital is no longer the invisible center which directs the mode of production: its accumulation spreads it all the way to the periphery in the form of tangible objects. The entire expanse of society is its portrait."
--Guy Debord, "The Society of the Spectacle," Thesis 50
"In the inverted reality of the spectacle, use value (which was implicitly contained in exchange value) must now be explicitly proclaimed precisely because its factual reality is eroded by the overdeveloped commodity economy and because counterfeit life requires a pseudo-justification."
