Weinger speaks of an “intellectual victory of capitalism,” yet he offers nothing more than its (assumed) acceptance as the current form of dominant thought as evidence for this claim. It is hardly shocking, again, to see that he has little consideration for why, perhaps, this current state of affairs might be; he seems more interested in dogmatically asserting (in a typically conservative way) that capitalism is, and, if he a) stands to gain from it and, not unrelatedly, b) does not take seriously criticisms of the status quo (insofar as he’s even familiar with them), is desirable. This article, like much that passes for thought in our society, would be well accompanied by a consideration of the writings of Antonio Gramsci, notably his theory of hegemony.
