ends of simulacra

Assertions that we live completely in an environment of simulacra - the posture which is aware of coffee advertising but not the WTO's forced closure of the fund Columbia used to have to stabilize the price of coffee - are, to a great extent, the pronunciations of people who have deliberately chosen to content themselves with simulacra and consider the predicament inescapable. Alphonse van Worden read the whole thing (rtwt)

Partly, the analysis and interpretation of simulacra is easier work than the analysis of reality, and easier the more emphatically any other experience or form of knowledge of reality is ignored

to wit, the pervasive use of "that" Terri Schiavo picture (including her reflex smile) as the de facto headline for many of the news stories of this continuing controversy ... or as the means of continuing the controversy ?

Is it possible to raid the scientific and intellectual weapons of capital and turn them against capital?
