Building upon Althusser, ideology is thoroughly unconscious and functions as a series of justifications and spontaneous socio-symbolic rituals which support virtual authorities. The Real is not experienced as something which is ordered in a way that gives satisfactory meaning to all its parts in relation to one another.

Instead the Real is experienced as through the lens of hegemonic systems of representation and reproduction, while resisting full inscription into the ordering system ascribed to it.

This in turn may lead subjects to experience the Real as generating political resistance. Two instances of the Real can be identified: the abject Real or "real Real" , which cannot be wholly integrated into the symbolic order, and the symbolic Real, a set of signifiers that can never be properly integrated into the horizon of sense of a subject.

The truth is revealed in the process of transiting the contradictions; or the real is a "minimal difference", the gap between the infinite judgement of a reductionist materialism and experience as lived, [54] the "Parallax" of dialectical antagonisms are inherent to reality itself and dialectical materialism contra Friedrich Engels is a new materialist Hegelianism, incorporating the insights of Lacanian psychoanalysis, set theory, quantum physics, and contemporary continental philosophy.

Its power is purely symbolic and has no normative force outside of collective behavior. For example, controversial policy decisions such as reductions in social welfare spending are presented as apparently "objective" necessities.

Although governments make claims about increased citizen participation and democracy, the important decisions are still made in the interests of capital.

The two-party system dominant in the United States and elsewhere produces a similar illusion. Particular demands, if executed well, might serve as metaphorical condensation for the system and its injustices. The real political conflict is between an ordered structure of society and those without a place in it. When we lost our shared belief in a single power, we constructed another of the Other in order to escape the unbearable freedom that we faced.

For example, that despite people being aware of ideology, they may continue to act as automata, mistakenly believing that they are thereby expressing their radical freedom. Although one may possess a self-awareness, just because one understands what one is doing does not mean that one is doing the right thing.

Atheism is good. Religious fundamentalists are in a way no different from "godless Stalinist Communists". They both value divine will and salvation over moral or ethical action.

According to John Gray and John Holbo, his theoretical argument often lacks grounding in historical fact, which makes him more provocative than insightful.

Noah Horwitz, in an effort to dissociate Lacan from Hegel, interprets the Lacanian unconscious and the Hegelian unconscious as two totally different mechanisms. We are therefore, according to Lacan, alienated from language through the revelation of our desire. Even if that desire originated with the Other, as he claims, it remains peculiar to us.

I nonetheless deeply regret the incident.
