A New Immobility within History

"The ruling class, made up of specialists in the possession of things 
who are themselves therefore possessed by things, 
is forced to link its fate with the preservation of this reified history, 
that is, with the preservation of a new immobility within history.” 
Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle, 1967
