David Harvey

Concept: capital is not a thing, but a social relation between persons, established by the instrumentality of things. (Note: I really should have spent all the time I spent trying to understand Derridean coursework into trying to understand Marx, and I am fairly sure the reason we had to read so much Derrida and Foucault was precisely so we would not have time or energy for Marx.)

Fact: the decolonization movement of the 1960s was encouraged by the U.S. to break up empires that could come into conflict with each other, and also to strengthen U.S. hegemony.

I will review the chapter I have read and continue. Harvey explains a great deal.

Axé.
