: As to the implied stipulation, i.e. that the stupid and inane are the foundation of capitalism's support, I would look recommend you to look at 'New Age' pseudo-scientists and post-modernist philosophers more closely. Their lack of intellectual rigor and attention to the facts bodes ill for the Left's respectability in the future.

SDF: Why are "New Age" and "post-modernist" automatically "leftist"? There's certainly nothing opposing capitalist practice in either subculture. The "New Age" appears to me to be a commodity sold by Marin County hucksters, and my leftist friends think of "postmodernism" as a theory defending corporate marketing strategies, as in "Pepsi ads have a postmodern narrative construction..."
