Heads were rolling in Libya last week, right along the lovely Mediteranean coastline. blood in the water… At least, that is what the new Islamic State would like you to believe. Now, mind you, I do not doubt their claim for one post-modern, neoliberal minute. But, why can’t they at least show us them lopping off the heads of those Coptic Christians. In any event, it is truly heartening (not to mention surprising) to hear how well that young jihadist who was narrating the event spoke English. A very good upbringing, indeed.
The short story is that the USA really is the indispensable country. We have upset the entire fucking world in just a few short years. I don’t think even the French or Germans like us anymore. Of course, the English remain engaged, along with the infatuation shown us by Israel… but every master loves his pet dog. And the Israeli lobby treats us similarly.
While Putin was doing his damned best to show the West how neoliberal western Russia was becoming – spiffing up Sochi just to impress us for the big Olympic spectacle – we were out sneaking around behind big daddy’s back, fucking our way into the asshole of Ukraine. The only problem is, when you start by entering dirty orifices, you wind up catching the disease. And boy, do we have it bad now!!
There is no cure for this. We have screwed the pooch, and now must pay the piper. (Love those little diddys!) The entire Moslem world is beginning to take aim at our culture of pornography, as Chris Hedges rightfully pointed out this week. And capitalism, as always, is the culprit. Just can’t clean your hands of that stuff. The stench of money just hangs around like flies around an old barn door. Not that I agree with those Moslems chasing after virgins in the afterlife. I’d rather do my fucking here, while I still have a working penis! Wink wink. Or, as the Brits might have it — Wank wank! Well, you get my drift. But, I would concur that our neo-liberal sensibilities have been so deformed by the parade of sex, blood, and violence, (Bradley Cooper, American Sniper) that the world we inhabit is no longer recognizable.
Beware the appeal of the spectacle, the contoured body, the pretty eyes, the sexy voice. All is not as it appears. In a world where men become women and women, men. Where what you look like is more important than who you are. And, perhaps it is for those of us that are long ago emptied of anything we can call real. And a great majority of our enemies (new and old) are still running to be like us: Indians, Chinese, Russians.
And Russia, yeah Russia! Boy did we fuck that reset button. Hilary goes from showing Lavrov her red button to push, all the way to calling Putin the new Hitler. Well, now there is friendship for you. So much for that soul-reading George Bush did on Vova a few years back. Reset my ass! Russia did a 180 degree turn; instead of continuing its pivot West, it about-faced and pivoted East. Now, the claims of a new Eurasia stand out, along with the burgeoning economic power of BRICS. And Greece, huh! They took a lesson from Vicki Nudleman. They too said FUCK the EU!
Anyway, we are now entering the final phase, so beam me up Scotty. The world as we know is fast evaporating like hot breath on a cold mirror. What is to be done? We have built an erector set village managed by lunatics parading as adults. The entire deal is becoming unreal, long ago.
