    In this worldwide scenario of what he calls a post-progressive future, or what Bobbitt calls the market-state (which has destroyed the concept of a nation-state functionally) does it make sense to talk about political labels/affiliations in the way we have done in the past?

    Sounds like the Wm. Gibson novel “Neuromancer,” where the characters deal with multi-national corporations instead of governments.Report

    What has largely filled the void politically in the post-progressive era West are salesmen/entertainment leaders (Clinton, Blair, Sarkozy, Obama, even Bush in his own faux folksy way). Report
