    everything is ideological? well, no. ideology is an unconscious response to a condition of alienation. so “everything is ideological” is on a par with the sophistic “there is no truth.”

    i have to express my admiration for how often Corbett’s good sense and love for truth seem to win out over the anti-state/pro-money ideology expressed around here, to which he apparently subscribes

    if you want political economy (exchange > money > capitalism) without the state you are more utopian than those of us who want none of them
