ROMANTICISM IS A CURSE / FOR A NICKEL AND A DIME / MAN MACHINE / ADVERTISEMENTS AND POLITICS / THE GAME OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND

twenty years from now, white europeans and their descendants will be in many ways a minority / within twenty years, the global climate change will have a direct impact on a local scale / within twenty years workers doing 50% or more of all existing jobs will be replaced by robots or machines with arti cial intelligence / these are facts / am ı alarmed? / no, it is still 2,188,484,943,400 metres to go / some of us will make it and some will not and some will go to mars — there seems to be a parallel universe / a vision: ı see ‘the waste land’ in twenty- rst century neo-liberal post-postmodern reality / everything goes, but … ‘do not mention the war’ / victims become malignant aggressors not because they have to, but because they can, and that is their privilege / the pursuit of happiness, exclusively available to a few / happiness, physical love, career, appearance, a new top contact sport / membership required / the signi cance of kurtz’s last words, ‘the horror! the horror!’ — ‘qu’ils mangent de la brioche’ she is supposed to have said / ‘it is a jungle out there’ he is supposed to have said / ‘wolves eating lambs’ they are supposed to have said / and ı, ı am supposed to have said ‘whatever is the new sorry’ / am ı or am ı not / ı suppose ı have to say ‘dearest, life is pissing me off 24|7’ — except in advertisements and politics perception does not change reality / there was a middle-aged couple, they lived on the assumption that the banker would watch over them / on behalf of the banker, politicians promised prosperity and welfare / in return they had to have unconditional love and loyalty / unrealistic expectations, to think you can trust words of comfort from politicians who speak on behalf of bankers — supersize snake charmer / this, ‘the garden of eden’? / must be! / there is always food / so much food / food for creatures that are cursed, belly crawling children of satan / ‘ı sometimes think that’s love but ı know it’s only lust’ / damaged goods, send them back / money back guarantee / jolly good so far
