38 Their thesis is paradoxical: because the rationality of enlightenment excludes the irrational, it ends up purifying its own non-rational elements in a self-destructive way. This corrosive process, in the era of fascism and late-industrial society, entails that subjection become a condition of subjectivity, an illusionary form of voluntary domination rendering the experience of subjection inaccessible on account of its appearance of rationality. Under such circumstances it becomes possible to have knowledge of domination without the experience.

These impulses and the unpleasantness of hunger fuse into rage at the victim . . The animal to be devoured must be evil.
