As the late French philosopher Félix Guattari has argued, it is the infrastructure that ties us into the larger social and economic system, operating even at the level of the unconscious.

"I am an Idea-Thief"

"The molecular texture of the unconscious," he wrote, "is constantly being worked on by global society, that is to say, these days, by capitalism, which has cut individuals up into partial machines subjected to its ends, and has excluded or infused guilt into everything that opposed its own functionality."

Yet for Guattari it also the design of infrastructure that holds the potential for revolutionary action -- not on a grand scale but at the "molecular" level of daily life practices and interactions, and in the structure of management in institutions and organizations.
