Accelerationism – Wikipedia

Accelerationist theory has often been divided into mutually contradictory left-wing and right-wing variants. Left-wing accelerationism (abbreviated “L/Acc”[6]) attempts to press “the process of technological evolution” beyond the constrictive horizon[jargon] of capitalism by dismantling and reusing modern technology for socially beneficial and emancipatory ends.
