The trouble with critique today is that it is almost always negative. It is a flaw-picking assessment of something, to be written down, listed out, tabulated, and then somehow explicatory of why something isn't working. Capitalism isn't working because, have you seen that homeless guy climbing into the Westminster garbage bins on Belgrave Road? Immaterialisation of labour isn't working because First-World labour extraction is now about subjective processes, whereas the 'real', materially demanding work has been outsourced to the Third World? Postmodernism isn't working because, look at postmodernist critique! It deconstructs itself!
My gripe with critique is because it doesn't offer solutions, which by default makes it a demoralising practice. I'm thinking of frustrated middle-age men in mamak stalls who lambaste their bosses with a vengeance, and then carry their resentment back to work. In fact, I have a special beef to pick with critics who, in critiquing others, cover their asses so well by meta-critiquing themselves. Offer a solution? Gosh, if they did, they'd have to cover their asses so tightly they'd die of constipation.
Look at the way I've covered my ass here too.
