Reification of the Day

Even as “the market” implodes and again refutes its own totalitarian worshippers’ dogmas, our “mainstream” (read “overclass”-serving) leaders continue to talk about “it” in terms that would embarrass any self-respecting third-grader.

What am I talking about?  Treating “the market” as an actual, real thing, rather than a euphemistic abstraction for aggregate capitalist endeavors.

Check out this headline from yesterday’s New York Times:

Trying to Break Cycle, Markets Rise

It’s remarkable to watch how utterly imprisoned by its own ideologies our super-decrepit overclass is.  The rotten, impotent twaddle pours forth, even as the Wile E. Coyote feet keep scrambling on canyon air.  Don’t ever look down, o brave entreperneurs!

They don’t know themselves vewwy well, do they?
