commented on In 3,228 Words John Roderick Tries to Kill Punk—In 30 Words He Validates Its Existence Instead
I'm with Roderick. I don't think he's dwelling on the subject as much as a lot of these commenters--I think they're proving his point. Without letting go, all you are is what you're not. In this case--not John Roderick.
Here's Slavoj Zizek to prove my point.
"There is no ideology (punk rock) that does not assert itself by means of delimiting itself from another 'mere ideology' (capitalism). An individual subjected to ideology (punk rock) can never say for himself 'I am in ideology (punk rock)', he always requires another corpus of doxa (capitalism in form of 'the mainstream') in order to distinguish his own 'true' position from it."
