Deep time Marxism (noun)

/diːp tʌɪm ˈmɑːksɪz(ə)m”/

  1.  Investigation of political subjectivities which develop as direct results of geological developments and the concentration of valuable minerals in specific regions of earth’s crust (and celestial bodies in outer space).
  2. Class consciousness which develops from investigating oneself as a fossil of the future (i.e. Imagining how traces we have left in to earth’s crust and geospace [traces of radiation, concentrations of metal, space junk, etc.] will be interpreted by the Deep time Marxists of the future).
  3. A pedagogical movement working to deposit specific traces of human activity in geographically strategic sites, so that the Deep time Marxists of the far future may come to terms with their role in history.
  4. (Fig.) Of a communist or socialist ideology resurfacing from history. Ref. Geological theory of deep time which manifests itself in minerals and fossils surfacing from earth core; living fossils.

    1. This definition of DTM offers me enormous hope. From its perspective the waste management of capitalist society is presented as ideological and I can assure myself that the DTM’s of the Future will read the geological deposit we leave behind in critical light.

      1. Same here, finally a political stance I can relate to. We should introduce this in the next Left Alliance party congress.

        1. “Fellow members of the party. I stand speaking to you, not only as an advocate of solidarity and economic equality but also as a fossil of the future. Comrades! Class awareness is a result geological development and hence communism is a geological inevitability! Comrades! History will not end!”
