Ah, I didn't even think of that! But I think that makes sense, yeah. The one of the black and white wolf, I presume?

I often feel both infinitely lonely and surrounded by people at the same time.

Yes, as well the job itself is a "spook" or ideology. Since all jobs (even outside of the capitalist context) are ideological in that they serve the purpose of extracting profit (from the non-human and the human) and are thus removed from "wild nature" or ones natural "desire". I would suggest the text Against His-story Against Leviathan for this analysis of jobs as I tie Perlmans conception of "Armor" to this understanding of ideology.

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: the conditions, definitions, and implications of job titles were made up; the only thing that says that a janitor, a cook, a cashier, and a manager can't switch jobs are arbitrary social standards; as are any differences in the wages of those jobs. The janitor is stuck being a janitor regardless of the janitor's wishes; in this sense, the job title of "janitor" is a phantasm that is given the ability to influence the actions of the individual holding, or rather being held by, the title regardless of how that individual feels about it. So, yeah, it's a phantasm in a similar sense that race, nationality, laws or gender are: fake when you think about it, but real in the sense that most individuals in society give it power and influence.

not exactly sure what you were originally trying to communicate to me but to clarify, while i concede and recognize my participation in so-called witch-hunting, i seem to recall a good amount of 'backlash' recieved being either arguments thst I misunderstood wolfi's intentions of the piece (doubt it), that it was baseless moralism (half-truth), or that it was a personal affair i was using for publicity (absolute fabrication.) my regret stems from a crass and unuanced analysis, not for providing the analysis itself. my regret stems from making it accessible to those who will absolutely use it to justify the abuse of children, not because i brought the essay to light. again these things will have to be said because if we do not talk about it, someone else will talk about it for us.
