  1. This is such an intriguing and well-articulated presentation! Fantastic work breaking down the anarchist qualities of the devil and the inaccurate popular portrayals.

  2. Very very intriguing! I am absolutely fascinated by how the devil serves as the medium of commonality between a discarded aristocracy and an oppressed proletarian class. I wonder though whether the ongoing association of the devil with aristocratic wealth or standing in popular media today solidifies the desire to become a capitalist or at the very least support capitalism consumer culture. The latter champions luxury (as though life must necessarily be luxurious to be enjoyable and worth having), which in turn lends iconic status to the very idea of aristocracy and aristocrats, which perhaps accounts for the American obsession with the royals of England… All this is to say, you’ve given me a lot to think about. Thank you!
