"has had no discernible effect on radical contestation in that entire time."

Soft disagree. In the late '90s as a baby anarchist, his analysis of US foreign policy and the media was incredibly important for me understanding how the world works. His philosophy has never been interesting, but his ability to take big world issues and distill them down into something people can understand without spending all their days analyzing news sources has definitely had a discernible effect on radicals. Assuredly less so now, but the pre-internet days were more difficult as far as that goes.
