Good Examples of Bad Critical Theory.

Whilst readers of this blog are right to probably refrain from being acquainted with this type of literature, I am looking for some good examples of bad contemporary critical theory to cite in my thesis. By bad critical theory I mean: (1) Post-Habermasian critical theory that does not engage with an account of the crisis. (2) contemporary critical theory that has an a non-economic or socio-economic account of the crisis. I’m already going to cite Habermas for being theoretically incapable of such an analysis and argue that Honneth’s rehabiliation of reification in jettisoning a suprindividual frame is incapable of addressing these problems, but further examples would be helpful.
