            The original Baudrillard has ceased. The counterfeit Baudrillards continue to represent “Baudrillard-ness” for most “consumers” of his philosophical production. From a few counterfeits they have reproduced themselves exponentially at campuses across the globe. The simulated Baudrillards "or third order simulacra" are now the only Baudrillards that anyone knows, the copies of Baudrillard are now and forever more, more real than the “real” Baudrillard ever was or ever could have been.
