The Yellow Vests protest is not, as Negri claims, an insurrection against capitalism, nor is it a protest without "vision" as Žižek argues. It is a class matter. It is a sadness—bordering on the comical—that although the contemporary Left represents itself as an in-date tendency that has abandoned the out-of-date class struggles since capitalism has moved away from its industrial articulation to a new cognitive formation, its only model of change remains an out-of-date 1968 mutiny in France. Both Negri and Žižek in their analysis take '68 as the model for an up-to date Left insurrection: "The old '68 motto Soyons realists, demandons l'impossible!", Žižek writes, "remains fully relevant" (The Independent, 17 December 2018). This does, of course, raise the question not only of the relevance of this relevance, but the relevance of the contemporary Left itself.
