    Tolstoy. He belonged to the last generation that wasn’t past the tipping point of falling into hopeless materialism.

      >hopeless materialism
      The Anglo-Saxon model of economics is the worst, the nordic model is not as bad but it is still bad as it encourages charity and idleness, and the Asian model is too authoritarian and centralized. The system of governance Aristotle depicted in The Athenian Constitution, along with the class system Plato described in Republic are the best solution to Social-democracy and American (Anglo) capitalism.

        That's just how you get Latin America and Southern Europe (pre-1970s)

          Imagine combining the concepts of crowd funding, DeFi , debt obligation in a form of smart contract and co-operative enterprise where the workers own the means of production from the day they get the job until they quit or forced to quit through voting and get compensated for their shares (buyback) according to the valuation of the business. Taking power from the bankers and giving it back to the commoner. Although, I understand that some people are destained to rule and others to be ruled, according to Aristotle.

            Master-slave relations never ceased but merely changed to employer-employee.

      He will be studied in future anthropology classes, but otherwise no one will have heard of him.

    Murakami is still alive and I honestly think he's great.

      I like his work but I don't know why. I also think he's terribly overrated by people who don't quite know why he's great and not given any credit by those who don't have a contemporary novel to offer as a counterpoint. I think his work will have some longevity but time will tell.

        Yeah, it is odd how we hold to one image of a person, even ourselves, an image from a moment of time. But we have all done so many things. I think of Wolfe, a soldier in the Korean war, feeling the artillery barrages through the Earth as he lays in his tent... There are passages in BotNS which seem to me to drip with autobiographical content, especially some of the scenes surrounding war.

    Houellebecq. I despair that there are really none like him. His work is some of the most transgressive and raw that I have ever encountered.

    Beckett, he died towering over the generation after him and he looms even larger when looking at the current crop. Ireland in particular shows a disgusting decline in literature before and after Beckett.
