“However these privileged workers of the completed commodity society do not resemble slaves in the sense that they must provide for their upkeep themselves.  Rather their status can be compared to serfdom, because they are exclusively attached to an enterprise and to its smooth running, without receiving anything in return, and above all because they are strictly compelled to reside in one single space: the same circuit of ever identical dwelling-units, offices, motorways, holidays and airports.
But they also resemble modern proletarians by the precariousness of their resources, which is in conflict with the programmed routine of their expenditure: and by the fact that they have to hire themselves out on an open market without possessing anything of the instruments of their labor - because of the fact that they need money.  They have to buy commodities: and things have been so arranged that they cannot remain in contact with anything which is not a commodity.”
from In Girum Imus Nocte Et Consumimur Igni (We Spin Around the Night Consumed by the Fire) d. Guy Debord (1978)
