Perhaps its about time Herbert Marcuse did come back into fashion. It would
perhaps lead people to realise that this pomo discovery of consumer hedonism
and hyper-reality is nothing earth shatteringly new. It seems to em that
Baudrillard for example, is nothing more than Marcuse without the (albeit
sometimes sketchy) politics of resistance. The Marcuse revival starts here.

              Hey -- I _still_ like Herbert Marcuse.

               Sure, I know. The difference is that eventually Nehru jackets
will come back into fashion.
