"Bourgeois ideology is an ideology which refuses to allow itself to be identified as an ideology by presenting itself as neutral, impartial, universal, objective and value-free." - Roland Barthes
Some accuse the materialist conception of reality of perpetrating moral and existential nihilism. On the contrary, the real nihilism is the ideology which demands subordination and uniformity to the interests it defends by virtue of its own institutional ideological indoctrination, seeking to bind the very fabric of our existences. It destroys and imprisons the metaphorical soul in the spiritual secular war. In a totalitarian fashion, it asserts its propositions of unavoidable and non-modifiable truth as somehow metaphysically innate to material consciousness and reality.
