“Pillage is the natural response to the affluent society: the affluence, however, is by no means natural or human — it is simply abundance of goods. Pilllage, moreover, which instantly destroys commodities as such, discloses the ultima ratio of commodities, namely, the army, the police and the other specialized detachments which have the monopoly of armed force within the State. What is a policeman ? He is the active servant of commodities, the man in complete submission to commodities, whose job is to ensure that a given product of human labour remains a commodity with the magical property of having to be paid for instead of becoming a mere fridge or rifle — a mute, passive insensible thing, itself in submission to the first comer to make use of it.” – Situationist International, Decline and Fall of the Spectacular Commodity Society.
