 No.13607

So I'm reading picrel, and enjoying it so far, but I was wondering if there are any analysis of its critique of yuppie culture/capitalism?

Feel free to share your thoughts regardless, it is a very enjoyable book IMO.

the writer of this thing damn
what a moron
can't believe he understands anything to critique

 No.15586

>>13631
yeah, he wrote an entire book (his first non-fiction) crying about how millennials (does he even know what that means?) are over sensitive and how "white privilege" is racist lmfao

Ahh, what a shame, when a past transgressive author gets too old.

how did he write american psycho?
did he go crazy or was this book meant to critique something else

 No.15603

In addition to >>15587, I think that's just what happens when you get old and stop paying attention to trends, then after 5 or 10 years you see something in the news and it all hits you like a brick wall that you have no idea what is going on, it's all new and scary and confusing, and most people have the instinctual reaction to reject it.

It'll happen to you, too.

NEVER
I'LL ALWAYS STAY HIP WITH TEENS

IM A GENZ YO
WE'LL ALWAYS STAY RAD

But seriously tho, his transition into a reactionary goes to show you the importance of trends and having a consistent belief and theory

 No.16490

I used to read lots of Baudrillard, but now I find this kind of radical critique totally pointless and toothless. It's like complaining about the existence of air at this point.

But if anyone's still interested in this then I recommend checking out early Baudrillard:
>System of Objects
>Consumer Society
>For a critique of the political economy of the sign
