remnant 19: “once you’ve got an illusion going”

with one comment

Systematic, efficient, sophisticated. No muss, no fuss. Very business like. Just went to prove, once you’ve got an illusion going, it can function on the market like any other product. Advanced capitalism churning out goods for every conceivable niche. Illusion, that was the key word here.

Dance Dance Dance, Haruki Murakami, p.282
