Arcade Theology

it must´ve been none other than Karl Marx who created the, as it were, Theology of Capital. by reversing Hegels´s Theology of History.  yet Marx somehow also Created its opposite: mostly known as Communism. just like who else but Christ set the tone who´s countertone was and is anti-Christianity.

Take this to the post 1950 era and you start getting closer to Arcade Theology, of which´s chief transmittors can be none other than Nick Land (b. 1962), and William Gibson (b. 1948).

arcade (n.) Look up arcade at Dictionary.com1731 (as arcado, from 1640s), from Italian arcata “arch of a bridge,” from arco “arc,” from Latin arcus (see arc). Applied to passages formed by a succession of arches, avenues of trees, and ultimately to any covered avenue, especially one lined with shops (1731) or amusements; hence arcade game (1977).

it would be errenous not to include Walt Disney (1901–1966) and his imageneers along.
