Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I only wish that you had caught my response to Jake, which clarified my meaning:

This has been rather well understood in academic anthropology for twenty years at least, but, as it affects how social, political and economic power is perceived, it seems to be better understood within a discipline the further that discipline is from the routine use of the "levers of power".
