THE POLIS IS NOW THE GHETTO

Multiracialism and the Death of Politics



During the American election contest, I found myself paying less attention than ever to the arguments, campaign slogans, promises and gaffes made by both sides – and I have to admit to having felt somewhat guilty about this at the time. Despite my contempt for mainstream politics both in my own country and abroad, a nagging little voice persisted in scolding me that one should at least study these things in some measure of detail.

On second thoughts, and having perused the election results, I think I should have paid even less attention than I did. As America advances towards Multi-Racial Utopia, the content of the national debates and media circus around its elections is going to become about as relevant to their results as the spectacle of a surfer dancing on the crest of a wave would be to an oceanographer. Political programmes and arguments that might once have been worthy of debate are degenerating into irrelevant entertainment, as demography and caste become the true determining factors.

THE GREAT WORDFLATION

Words before they escaped from the monastery.


If I could write this article without words I would, because, by employing more of the squiggly little things, I am being complicit in “The Great Wordflation,” that great clogging of the mental arteries, or that stimulus to ignorance that you encounter when you see another yet another 10000-word-plus essay on the internet, written by someone with a pen name detailing their personal path to enlightenment.

Matching the great inflation of the money/credit/debt supply and the great outpouring of cheap, mass produced consumerism that has characterized our era, we have also seen The Great Wordflation. It seems only fair to assume that they are somehow all marching in lock step towards some mutually agreed cataclysmic point.
