The commodity-form revisited: speculations on the Spectacular society

Wouldn't normally do this, but received an email from a college friend who said, in passing, of an Old School anarchist we both know:

Talking of which I saw Ed recently... the punk legend. He was keenly enthusing about some Mushrooms he bought from Igigis. "Good old capitalism," I wryly commented... as he supped at his early morning can of stella. Anarchism and good quality, imported, continental lager. "Yes," he replied, "I've had so much capitalism this morning I can hardly stand up."
