  Decadence of capitalism | International Communist Current   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The decadence of capitalism is not the eternal repetition of its contradictions on a growing scale, but poses the question of its survival as a mode of production, according to the terms used by Marx and Engels.
By rejecting the concept of decadence as defined by the founders of marxism and subsequently taken up by the organisations of the workers’ movement, some of whom deepened it further, Battaglia Comunista is turning its back on a historical materialist understanding.
The very idea of decadence, which we describe as a period in which the material pre-requisites for communism exist but the revolution has not been made (since the subjective consciousness is absent), is a notion which would be nonsense to a mechanical materialist since he sees causality as working directly from material conditions".

 Decadence: The Theory of Decline or the Decline of Theory?
III][3] The model is one of the objective reality of capitalist decadence, arising from its own dynamic, which makes world communist revolution necessary and possible, with the job of revolutionaries being to take this analysis to the class who will be objectively predisposed to receiving the message due to their experience of the crisis.
In this program we see the recurrent themes of the theory of capitalism's decadence: the identification of the revolutionary project with the evolutionary progress of society; the ascribement of primacy to the economic laws of development of capital; and the reduction of revolutionary political activity to a reaction to that inevitable movement.
[28] The word decadent does seem apt for a system that flings millions to their deaths but this would be to slip into a moral use of the term that the proponents of the theory would be the first to reject.

As for decadence, the most important thing is to recognize it, to become conscious of it, and to resist being misled by its various tricks and disguises.
The terms decadence and decadent offered Nietzsche the opportunity to synthesize and unify a great many related ideas (decline, degeneration, sickness, etc.) that had become constitutive elements of his dialectic of life against death.

 Charles Baudelaire and Decadence
He himself thought the word "vague" and too convenient, a cant term to be brandished by "ignorant pedagogues." Yet most of the phenomena it was and is supposed to describe can be traced to him: that is, he is found as the early object of their attribution.
The common idea of Baudelaire as decadent, particularly in the sense of being perverse, derives largely from the preface that Théophile Gautier wrote for the edition of Les Fleurs du mal published in 1868, the year after the poet's death.
Gautier, says Gilman, "was the first to call him decadent," a term that had previously not been "used to characterize persons, and in fact, in applying it to the poet, Gautier was actually invoking the work, as when we speak, for example, of Shakespeare's qualities and mean the plays' rather than the man's.

 Literary Decadence / Aestheticism   (Site not responding. Last check: )
According to the literary scholar Chris Baldick, literary Decadence is the 19th-century literary movement in Paris, London, and Vienna that cultivated the exhausted refinement and artificiality it admired in the "decadent" ages of Greek and Latin literature.
The basic principle of this decadence, expounded in the 1860's by Gautier and Baudelaire, was the complete opposition to Nature: hence its systematic cultivation of drugs, cosmetics, Catholic ritual, supposedly "unnatural" sexual practices, and sterility and artificiality in all things.
General characteristics: Decadence reflects excesses, loss of vigor, concern with manner over substance; it is a refinement of style, an artificiality in content; it is the oppositite of "progressive." An important note: Decadence doesn't require that the author be "decadent;" this has nothing to do with personal morality.

During the nineteenth century, decadence acquired a third, closely related, aesthetic meaning that led to the formation of the Decadent Movement.
Roman decadence is analyzed in, among other works, Charles-Louis le Secondat, Baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu's (1689-1755) Considérations sur les causes de la grandeur des Romains et de leur décadence (1734) and in Gibbon's The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1776-1788).
In a sociopolitical vein, the Romantics' notion of individualism and their revolt against classical form and conservative morality helped formulate decadence into a self-conscious lifestyle choice that allowed individuals not only to accept but to celebrate preferences and tastes that were traditionally seen as deviant, immoral, and counterproductive.

 FrenchQuarter.com: Southern Decadence 2005: A How-To Guide
Unlike most gay and lesbian party weekends, Southern Decadence doesn't revolve around one single ticketed party, although multiday passes are sold by the two main gay dance bars (the Bourbon Pub and Oz) which flank either side of Bourbon Street and Saint Ann.
If the weekend has a signature event, though, it's the Southern Decadence parade which begins at the Golden Lantern on Royal Street on Sunday afternoon and winds its way through the French Quarter on the whim of whoever happens to be the Grand Marshal that year.
Parades and non-stop parties aside, Southern Decadence may be most famous (or infamous) for the displays of naked flesh which characterize the event - which is only fitting, since New Orleans in early September is generally the closest thing you'll ever experience to walking around in a steambath outside of a health spa.

Decadence vocalizes the paradox of modern cosmopolitans who found themselves dependent on a lifestyle which they inherently despised.
The sinister, teeming metropolis, the central symbol of Decadent literature, overshadows the protagonists in Decadent plots, and many novels from the 1860s onwards seem an accumulation of individual sketches of city life when compared with the developmental Bildungsromanen of the mid-nineteenth century.
The city emerges as the “megalopolis”—evil because it divorces men from nature and conditions them to the artificialities of urban life, causing them to lose their souls: the recurrent image employed in Decadent fiction is that of the City as Babylon, the Great Whore.
