The phobic panic that the prospect of a Labour-SNP coalition is provoking indicates that capital fears any reversal, no matter how modest, of this situation. It has grown used to having everything its own way — but this has led to a certain decadence, an exhaustion of thinking and of strategy. Sturgeon poses a threat, not merely because of her lawyerly poise in debate, not merely because she has articulated an anti-austerity position, nor even because she makes Scottish independence more likely, but more because she has a mobilised base of support behind her.
Rather than compulsively repeating the same strategies, rather than dogmatically insisting on the inherent futility of elections, these developments are part of a process of collective learning about how popular movements can be re connected with parliamentary politics. The potential power of such strategies is clear. The electoral impasse is not down to some semiotic failure if only we had the right PR initiative to engage the kids!
Capitalist realism is class war fought by one side only, an organised corporate elite which is very clear about what its own class interests are and what must be done to keep things aligned with those interests.

I had a really hard time with this book. I felt like I was reading a B rated movie, it was really unrealistic and almost comical. I would have much rather it been more realistically scary than comically scary.
I usually read a book a week or more and it took me months to pound through this book. I was not at all interested in any thing that was happening.

The imagination used to create This book was provided free in exchange for an honest review. The imagination used to create the world of Limbo and its inhabitants — wow! Dora is just as gritty and well developed. The only real issue I had was there is a point in the book where the police are talking about a John Grim and how he disappeared a long time ago, long enough for a few wars, industrial revolutions and a several hundred more years on top of that.
