Classical Marxism evolved in a production system whose basic technological capability was producing huge quantities of identical products, which resulted in a general trend towards homogenisation, towards centralization of all powers in only one power, that plans and orders centrally, and it was also expressed in a joint behavioral pattern of normalcy, intolerant of difference, repressively promoting adaption to one kind of world, to one kind of life. We live in a world where high-tech production has the capacity to produce a diversified manner, and dominate in this diversification. A world in which power management does not require the full power to maintain its hegemonic position, and in fact distributes apportioned quotas, being able to dominate in a second order, maintaining a power differential on the distributed and atomized powers. A world in which classic "normalcy" has been broken down into a multitude of particular "normalcies", configured as series, or combinatorials of specific characteristics, and where dominant powers do have sufficient technological capacity to interact with these individuals, to dominate them in their diversity, and even provide them illusory diversity in an interactive and recognizing way. A world with many possible forms of life, many apparent worlds in the same world. A world that can suppress resistance, and maintain the prevailing state of things, through tolerance, promoting tolerance in the immediate order of life, although refusing to do so in the second order from which it dominates.
