    The Name and Email field were prefilled with someone else’s info when I started making this comment, dunno if that’s the same known error or something different.

    Anyway.

    I think this is largely spot-on, but I’m not sure that it’s necessarily true that the capitalist class hierarchy creates the hierarchies of race, gender, and so on, so much as that all of them are manifestations of hierarchy underlying (at least) all European and European-derived culture since (at least) the Middle Ages, the kyriarchy. That’s the real target–leave it untouched, and the liberation of the working class from capitalist oppression will just twist into new hierarchies.

    I had more here, but the more I wrote the more I realized I’m not sure if this is actual disagreement or just a difference in terminology.

    Good stuff.

    I think Thomas Mann made a fascinating distinction between the fascist and communist relationships to art – with which, let’s face it, this blog is profoundly concerned – when he said that communism makes art into politics, whilst fascism makes politics into art.

    hey..awesome piece..but i’ve got just one question – so i’m writing this essay for http://www.domyhomework4me.net/ and based on all the stuff i read (probably not much but still quite enough for me to do the assignment) fascism is about the government or one sole person having a control over the whole country in all its aspects and in your piece you talk about business financing fascism but how can a business exist in a fascist country and not be monopolized by it??
