Things  §

I am a fairly intent Marxian: I tend to argue that nearly everything in the world shares a deterministic (i.e. being fully determined) relationship to extant modes and relations of production.

I am, however, wearing post-structuralist socks: I deeply suspect that modes of production themselves are actually fully subjugated (without such things being obvious at all) to lexicality, semantics, and analogics.

The wind and the police actually often sound the same. These are apropos of each other only if the police are (as they often claim to be) like the wind. Otherwise the phenomenon is just, as one initially feels it to be, uncanny.
