was a profile in the local rag of a student who considers herself
a socialist, and what life is like to her in that identity.
No cakewalk apparently, but then she is Scandinavian.
The vapid story got me to thinking about
the obvious: how our world has ordered thought so that socialism
must account for itself. So far as we know, barely 200 years
of possessive individualism is the only deviation from our species
universal experience with group centered social existence.
From this I conclude that to say ideology
is superstructural is not to say very much.
