tsuomela : hegemony   7
"How to explain the hegemonic stability of neoliberal capitalism even in the midst of its crises? The emergence of ideology theories marked a re-foundation of Marxist research into the functioning of alienation and subjection. Going beyond traditional concepts of ‘manipulation’ and ‘false consciousness’, they turned to the material existence of hegemonic apparatuses and focused on the mostly unconscious effects of ideological practices, rituals and discourses. Jan Rehmann reconstructs the different strands of ideology theories ranging from Marx to Adorno/Horkheimer, from Lenin to Gramsci, from Althusser to Stuart Hall, from Bourdieu to W.F. Haug, from Foucault to Butler. He compares them in a way that a genuine dialogue becomes possible and applies the different methods to the ‘market totalitarianism’ of today’s high-tech-capitalism."

slacktivist: The indignation of the persecuted hegemon: An illustration
"We've discussed here the feigned offendedness of the IndigNation -- those who seem addicted to and intoxicated by finding or manufacturing reasons to self-righteously puff themselves up with artificial umbrage.

And we've discussed the bizarre contradictions of the persecuted hegemons -- those who claim the privilege that in their view pertains to being a dominant ethnic or sectarian majority while simultaneously posturing as a persecuted and put-upon minority."

Self-Reflexivity and the Hegemonic Fallacy « Larval Subjects .
Benoît, criticizing what I call the hegemonic fallacy, remarks that he’s never heard anyone defend the position that there is one difference that makes all the difference. He’s right, you won’t find a single thinker in all of the history of philosophy claiming that there is one difference that makes all of the difference. However, like many fallacies, the hegemonic fallacies occurs not in the positions people defend, but in how they proceed in practice. While no reasonable person would make the claim that there is one difference that makes all the difference, there are a number of thinkers that nonetheless behave as if there were a type of difference that makes all the difference.

slacktivist: The burkha-logic of NOM
The persecuted hegemon is thus an oxymoronic creature driven by an oxymoronic principle: non-reciprocal justice. For these folks, turnabout is never fair play, turnabout is merely backwards. Thus when others respond to them in kind, or even simply remind them of the Golden Rule, they take offense, as though this constitutes an injustice toward them.
