This is just (yawn) one more fake 'post-marxist' analysis (of which there
has been plenty: 'Post Modernism' being the exemplar of this genre).
Dismissing the importance of those CENTRAL materialist concepts -- the
Means and Mode of Production -- is a dead giveaway that this is just one
more quasi-/pseudo-'scientific' analysis. With a suspect political-economic
-- no doubt petit-bourgeois liberal -- agenda behind it, of course.
