To me, the most adequate definition of false consciousness is “Putting your personal, economic, and social freedoms and interests in the charge of a person or people who have no interest in maintaining or protecting your personal, economic, and social freedoms.” For example, I personally know one particular Ivy League douche-fag who is “married” (LOL) to an illegal Latino immigrant. This asshole leads discussions and activity evenings for campus Republicans, filling yet another generation of rich white kids with bigotry and ignorance, and proudly voted for McCain/Palin, AND AT THE SAME FUCKING TIME, cries piteously to the “liberal media” every change he gets about the fact that his partner is at risk of being deported by the big, bad government and constantly puts up Facebook status updates about how worried he is about his “marriage” and how he hopes people will support him in his struggle to save it. Uh…maybe you should have thought of that before voting for the people who rely on anti-gay bigotry as a key source of influence and authority, fuckwad? People like that should stab themselves in the face, just to save the rest of us the effort. There is only one economy, kids.
