Likewise, Leif Sorensen draws on a similar point by discussing how Zone One feeds into his claim that “the novel’s commitment to closure is driven in part by a sense that repetitive cycles of late-capitalist futurism offer change in name only” (561). In other words, an aspect of consumer society includes a presentation of a new idea, product, or concept that is actually a previous idea rebranded.
