Culture of Illusion – What is America?


We are all insane:

– The Psychological Architecture of Leni Reifensthal.

– Everyone is a star in the motion picture of their lie.

– A public holiday is a celebration of shopping and commercialism first, a celebration of the person or event in question third.

– All Weathers. All Climates. All Landscapes.

– Freedom is a shibboleth.

– Bigotry and Enlightenment walk hand in manacled hand.

– Laziness is at once embraced, venerated, criticised, aspired to.

– Purposelessness is derided and underrated.

– Drive thru banks, drive thru restaurants, drive thru drive thrus, drive thru funeral parlours, drive thru shooting galleries

– The American Dream is a mist that covers everything in a patina of greasy possibility.

– Utility is an ugly obsession.

– Teetering at the edge of an abyss.
