The institutional/structural societal peonage maintained based on race, and repressive economic divisions preserved over disadvantaged classes of personkinds, require dialogical collusion – sometimes evident in the dialogical hetroglossia (Mikhail Bakhtin, Speech Genres and Other Late Essays, U of Texas Press, 1986) of the distressed and badly served. The “profits” about which we so often speak (“success”, “fortune”, “affluence”) are not bound by the verbal-ideological horizon within which we have given them voice.
