(9098) Did the Sokal affair "destroy postmodernism"? - YouTube
"society of the spectacle" - The Society of the Spectacle is a 1967 work of philosophy and Marxist critical theory by Guy Debord, in which the author develops and presents the concept of the Spectacle. The book is considered a seminal text for the Situationist movement. // Mass media and commodity fetishism - Comparison between religion and marketing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Society_of_the_Spectacle --- In his analysis of the spectacular society, Debord notes that the quality of life is impoverished,[6] with such a lack of authenticity that human perceptions are affected, and an attendant degradation of knowledge, which in turn hinders critical thought.[7] Debord analyzes the use of knowledge to assuage reality: the spectacle obfuscates the past, imploding it with the future into an undifferentiated mass, a type of never-ending present; in this way the spectacle prevents individuals from realizing that the society of spectacle is only a moment in history, one that can be overturned through revolution.[8][9] << see by Byung-chul han - Psycho politics and the tired exhausted depressed worker who can't imagine getting up for a revolution. thus votes brexit and trump. where am I getting my pizza if we have a revolution?

Donald Trump Making Life Tough for German Companies - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Irritation is growing within both the European business community and the German government over the Trump administration's ruthless approach. During a trip to Beijing last week, Joe Kaeser, CEO of global engineering giant Siemens, lamented an American policy of "tariffs and tweets." The statement represented something of a reversal of course for the executive. At the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this year, he and other German executives were fawning over Trump.

DeVos repeated the lie multiple times to different committees knowing that the conditions she was told about came from a student who graduated 17 years ago. DeVos, caught red handed for clearly manipulating the truth to sour public schools and proffer public funding for private schools, sat dismayed.
