    It's why I linked to Procrustes' bed. The journalistic version of history is perfectly happy to leave out any details that don't fit the schematic being laid out (see, for example, the omission of Shays' Rebellion). The rest is explained by invoking Gramsci and omitting what he said about the subordinate cultures and how permeable the barrier between dominant/hegemonic and subordinate (see jazz and hip-hop) is.
