“The reigning economic system is founded on isolation; at the same time it is a circular process designed to produce isolation. Isolation underpins technology, and technology isolates in its turn; all goods proposed by the spectacular system as it strives to reinforce the isolation of “the lonely crows.” The spectacle is continually rediscovering its own basic assumption – and each time in a more concrete manner.”
Guy Debord, 1967, The Society of the Specacle, p.22
