If you read this blog, you will find an apparently odd mixture of literary criticism, philosophical and psychoanalytical reflection and vaguely Marxist politics. Nonethless, I regard these things as part of the same project.So without reading further, I did.
Roughly, this can be summed up in the words of Theodor Adorno: "To displace and estrange the present, to reveal it to be, with its rifts and crevices, as indigent and distorted as it will one day appear in the messianic light." And perhaps by the sadness in Brecht's 'As a way of living together, we merely invented capitalism." If these quotes sound pretentious or portentous (in the pejorative sense) then go elsewhere.
