(after reading mackenzie wark's review of the most recent Mad Max) in which he observed certain tropes as 'the white desire to be indigenous', anti intellectualism dressed up as a desire for cultural simplicity, and a return to hyper-individualism that reflects neo-conservative values of the travelling family unit, distrustful of strangers etc. the brexit mentality, pop-stream-nihilism seen in the likes of true detective etc. and also in the masculinist narratives such as the revenant, the road etc.  All of which are about 'the chase' or rather the pursuit of desire and in that they might relate directly to Kerouac's version of The Beats.
