Pasolini on bourgeois subjectivity

“The most odious and intolerable thing, even in the most innocent bourgeois, is that of not knowing how to recognize life experiences other than his own: and of bringing all other life experiences back to a substantial analogy with his own.”  Pasolini, Heretical Empiricism, p. 87—quoted in Fredric Jameson, Antinomies of Realism (Verso, 2013), p. 178.
