Dear Mr. Clover, bravo. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated your article. It was insightful, thought-provoking, and a much-needed palliative to most of the current "coverage" and discussion of the financial crisis. I was reminded of something Slavoj Zizek wrote (I cannot remember where) about the current state of cinema, wherein the end of the world (in various ways) can be readily and repeatedly imagined, whereas the end of capitalism (or even significant alterations in it) cannot. Again, thank you for the article, and to The Nation for publishing it.
