guy debord's "specatular marxism"

A short one from the "drafts" file. Below is an excerpt from some of my class notes on the Situationist International:

Guy Debord, et al--Situationist International rejects materialism;
problem of objects in post 1945 art--society
Spectacular Marxism

Am I the only one who finds the phrase "Spectacular Marxism" rib-ticklingly hilarious?

In reality, it ought to read "Society of the Spectacle; Marxism" as in this.

All jokes aside, the SI is pretty great. I'm completely pressed for time, so here is a link to SI online.
