Bifo:

"Semio-capital is in a crisis of overproduction, but the form of this crisis is not only economic but also psychopathic. Semio-capital, in fact, is not about the production of material goods, but about the production of psychic stimulation. The mental environment is saturated by signs that create a sort of continuous excitation, a permanent electrocution, which leads the individual as well as the collective mind to a state of collapse.” (http://unemployednegativity.blogspot.com/2010/03/bending-stick-returns-of-political.html)
