    Default Fantasy and politics

    I posted a thread about fantasy in the mature topics subforum just now and it reminded me of what I'd read in Eric Fromm's Fear of Freedom about how much he felt that fantasy informed politics and the economy or ideology overall.

    Its not clear and not presented well but I felt the import of Libidinal Economy was the same too, do you agree? To what extent is fantasy important to politics now? There arent great utopias like what the once were but perhaps its still important, I certainly think that a lot of economic theory and political ideology doesnt measure up to the reality in practice.

    There isn't a political system where religion doesn't play some role.
