Ballardian: Fascist State: Another look at Kingdom Come

There's just been a rather long, but quite fascinating post up on ballardian.com regarding JG Ballard's Kingdom Come, and the links between consumerism and fascism:

Thanks for posting that. Interesting, though I haven't finished reading it yet. Remember reading another paper on (I think) the same site about how The Unlimited Dream Company was a fascist work too. Shrug. Always had Ballard pegged as a blackshirt!
