  15. The medium is the “massage” quipped the prodigiously deterministic McLuhan, improvising on his own PR dogmatism. So we are being consistently ‘softened up’ in preparation for the “unthinkable.”

    Slavoj Žižek tells us, that (tactical) nuclear weapons are nothing compared to to the secretive biogenetic ordnance, now at the disposal of “our” infantile ecocidal establishment.

    Be that as it may, John Pilger’s appraisal is profoundly apposite, even more urgently needed and obligatory as never before. It will fall on deaf ears as usual, however.

    The new US Pharaoh, whomever or whatever ‘it’ may be dressed as, will certainly be invested with the quasi-authority of the perverse, wonky pyramid, that is overbearing, cock-eyed US exceptionalism ~ the transnational gift of an insane and servile polity, seduced into intoxicated impotence by consumerist platitudes; literally mesmerized by its own mechanistic precocity.

    How can democracy prevail, when automative psychosis rules through the militant authoritarianism that is US (ie Pentagonal) “pragmatism?”

    Good luck America….learn to ‘love your servitude!’ as you vote to bid farewell to this brave new world, and say hello to the void into which, even angels fear to look.
