In Spain, the very first operation against self-produced pornographic content by minors uncovered 110 kids between the ages of 5 and 13 who were filming themselves in pornographic ways and uploading the videos and images online. The motivation was always to get more likes and followers.
This is an example of the eager self-exploitation discussed by Byung-Chul Han. These children are not trafficked by evildoers or tortured by a totalitarian state to create terror. They have turned themselves into a means of production that creates profits for somebody else. And it’s all done completely willingly.
The only way to comprehend this is to ditch the outdated vocabulary of choice, freedom, free will, oppression and class struggle.
