In some ways it speaks to the success of the movements which spawned in the 60s largely focused on identity politics. The genuine origins, led by national revolutionaries like Fred Hampton, Malcolm X, and Robert F Williams, have been hijacked and misformed into a central pillar of ideological construction supporting monopoly capitalism - 'responsible capitalism' which 'values inclusive, diversity, representation, equity,' and more corporate friendly terms that the superstructure beats over people's heads with.
Meanwhile, I'd argue, the physical architecture of total information and communication control is being developed at a rapid pace, such that former western revolutionaries didn't face. In fact, the current subscription orientation of the economy matched with near total surveillance is one matter in the base, the most fundamental aspect of society according to histmat, that warrants a different name than 'capitalism' or even 'imperialism.'

Counter culture of the 60s was just commodities hippy bullshit. I hate hippies fuck hippies. But the new left yeah maybe. But the new left was, itself, an attack on the left.
