  1. My dearest Tutteji,

    We must bow to your supreme insight in bringing us your incomparable teaching “mind and market are one” You have proved once again that to rest in the ineffable confluence of the neo-liberal individual essence and the market will suffice to bring us to the realisation of the mind market confluence –the non-dual supreme bliss/ground of all of our entrepreneurial efforts.

    It is astonishing to me that you have so effortlessly anticipated the intellectuals by decades by simply resting on you (adorable)laurels in the empty-headed neo-liberal state which is the preliminary to the full realisation of the mind/market confluence. The absolute truth of your timeless, majestic vision is perfectly illustrated by the belated, stunted and pitifully crude conceptual excretions of the so call intelligentsia, fittingly illustrated by this poverty stricken attempt to conceptually plagiarise your insightful and effortless poetics –- a continuum of blissful buddhistic effusions which is indeed the mergence of wisdom (Thatcher/Rand/Wachtmeister) and compassion (Shakumuni/Jesus/Wachtmeister)

    Fourthly, the desideratum of universalizing the norm of competition goes well beyond the boundaries of the state. It directly affects individuals considered in their relationship with themselves. In fact, ‘entrepreneurial governmentality’, which must prevail at the level of state activity, finds a kind of continuation in the self-government of the ‘individual-enterprise’. More precisely, like the private actors of ‘governance’, the entrepreneur-state must indirectly conduct individuals to conduct themselves like entrepreneurs. The mode of governmentality specific to neo-liberalism thus includes ‘techniques of governing that exceed express state action and orchestrate the subject’s conduct toward him- or herself’. The enterprise is promoted to the rank of model of subjectivation: everyone is an enterprise to be managed and a capital to be made to bear fruit.
    Christian Laval and Pierre Dardo in their critical appraisal of Neoliberal Society “The New Way Of The World: On Neoliberal Society” quoted here on Dark Ecologies

    At last these pathetic intellectual dwarfs have at least a meagre grasp on the crumbs of your incomparable non-conceptual and empty-headed insight, which exceeds even the empty-headed conceptual excretions of Rand and Thatcher. Please accept my heartiest greetings after your long absence and ignore the rantings of my Non-buddhist doppelgänger and his boss Steingass.

  2. Dear Tutteji,
    Insert the link to Dark Ecologies. I was overcome by emotion and succumbed to a moment of incipient Altzeimers.
