Dr. Chadwallah, was lecturing on this last night, in our Subaltern Studies course, which I have to take 'cuz I flunked Diversity 101. He said, basically, that in Wealth Bondage, which is a metaphor for Societies of Control, our bodies are no longer restrained by shackles, or subordinated through the rack and the whip, but that now we have internalized these controls in our capacity as machines of desire programmed and exploited by Marketers. That is on the Consumer/Citizen side. On the producer side, we are surveilled, commanded, subjected to the discipline of the business plan, the job description, the management chain of command, in short strategies through which all things are measured and managed. Chadwallah went on to suggest that Venture Philanthropy and Strategic Philanthropy are strategies designed to extend the Societies of Control into what had once been called "civil society," or "the independent sector." I think this is all a bunch of crap. Philanthropy is going to save capitalism. Capitalism makes us Free.
So said Missy Proctor, as overheard by Tutor, in the ladies room in Wealth Bondage, where he was mopping the floors after Missy's dog got sick from eating the corndog he stole from Dick Minim at the Dallas Country Fair, where we had gone for a Corporate Morale Building Event. Anyway, here is the video Missy was made to watch. Talk about command and control. Chadwallah should back off or we will lose our better students. I appreciate Tutor drawing this to my attention. O, wait, I am Tutor. No, I mean the Happy Tutor.
