Louis B. Hartz Must Be Laughing (and crying) What’s Left (oh right–there is no left) of His Ass Off
Yes folks, just in case we needed any more proof that, when you really get down to it, there is no (significant) oppositional thought in America, the good folks at Fanboy Rampage (except for James Smith–who is, and always will be, awesome!) are performing supererogatory feats of capitulation to the Man…
You want “Moral Capitalism”? Could someone please explain to me what the fuck that means?
Yeah, yeah–John Byrne is evil. But what makes you think he isn’t right? (and why do you care if people who have enough money to mount massive lawsuits get a little more of that shit?)
my own comments are pretty far down in that thread–so here they are again:
John Byrne is absolutely right (this is a one-time only thing, so let’s not get used to it!)
nothing “fair” about capitalism, and copyright itself is an abomination
in the eyes of all good folk… anything anyone creates (especially an
easily-disseminated wonder like a story) belongs to the world, on a
need basis… Who the fuck cares whether the Siegel and Shuster heirs
win this petit-bourgeois struggle against Warners? I want to take those
little green shares in oppression away from all of them…
Okay America–resume squabbling over the spoils of war!
but let’s not forget what’s really important here (to me anyway)–Cerebus!
Good Aftanoon friends!
