Ordinaryism: An Alternative to Accelerationism. Part 2 - Exit versus Voice:
Freedom, Reasoning and Skepticism. By Robert Jackson.
Robert Jackson continues with a second journey into the realms of
Accelerationism and Ordinaryism. Having articulated how Accelerationism
merges Enlightenment principles in a supposed age of automation, Jackson
interrogates its philosophical roots by suggesting that the core motivation
behind its key approach embraces skepticism (even if the explicit method is
to reject skepticism in favour of increasing applications of knowledge) -
whereas what Ordinaryism suggests (following Cavell) is that skepticism
cannot be refuted nor endorsed, only inhabited as a salient vulnerable
conditon. The political implications of this division are telling and can
be extrapolated through the freedom to Exit (inhuman acceleration) versus
the freedom to find ones Voice (Ordinary appeal).
