Sorry to be so late the party, and I don't think ill generate many more comments with my addition, but I want to make it anyway, just for fun and for practice. I very much second @funky's chomskyian idea of manufacturing consent, though I don't often couch it in such terms. I call it something like 'controlling the narrative', 'moulding our dreams'. The media, but also our education and socialisation, reinforce many of our behaviours that themselves reinforce capitalism, and indeed the many non-capitalist yet still anarchically-undesirable structures.
Also feeding into this is our self-mollification; the ways our justifiable anger and discontent are redirected into channels that at the most cause only temporary roadblocks for the machines of capitalism, and at the least serve only to exhaust the energies of those involved in them.
I may add more as my medically slowed brain chews over this topic. Thanks for reading, if you did. Its good to be back (I hope).
