Engaging RETORT's Afflicted Powers, this critique asks how far RETORT takes Guy Debord's thinking, what the political implications of their use of Debord are vis-à-vis some of the geopolitical issues they raise (specifically, with regard to U.S. security policy and the Balkans), and, given the problems discussed, what conclusions can be reached about the nature of resistance both within and to a society of spectacle.
