In Capitalist Realism, Fisher offers a hopeful note. He predicts that a politics of fear enslaved by capital is vulnerable to even the slightest of ripples across its surface. Precisely because the system is made and maintained by technocratic control freaks, it is easily disrupted. Fisher says, “the long, dark night of the end of history has to be grasped as an enormous opportunity. The very oppressive pervasiveness of capitalist realism means that even glimmers of alternative political and economic possibilities can have a disproportionately great effect. The tiniest event can tear a hole in the grey curtain of reaction that has marked the horizons of possibility under capitalist realism. From a situation in which nothing can happen, suddenly anything is possible again.”
