An international perspective on the end of the end of the end:
The struggle for control of the White House in 2009 is a perfect analogy for the current state of the West. On the one side you have John McCain, an old Pale Male scarred by the many (moral) struggles the West has fought over the past two and a half millennia, and on the other side you have the (demographically) upcoming ‘Other’…. slugging it out to determine who will own the future. All promise Hope, but can they deliver? In short; will Rome still be Rome when Romans no longer rule?
Sad but true, Hillary Clinton, is just another anachronistic First Wave feminist whose sole aim is ultimate power, and Osama Barack is a completely inexperienced Afro-American, whose sole promise (Hope) is based on a myth (the Noble Savage). That the latter (a male) has based his campaign on his ‘blackness’ and not his ‘whiteness’, is clearly indicative of the continuing criminalization of the Pale Male. That this, in itself, is racist goes without saying, for to choose his ‘blackness’ over his ‘whiteness’ (he is half-black and half-white, not just half-black) is blatantly prejudiced. But then, who can blame him; the ‘Science’ of Victimology is still having a whale of a time ever since Freud and Marx invented the Eternal Victim (of trauma and capitalist exploitation, read alienation). Even Doris Lessing, the 2007 Literature Nobel Prize winner, has jumped on the Victimology bandwagon by stating that Obama will be assassinated if he became President. Assassinated by whom? By some Pale Male of course….those ‘evil’ creatures who stole humanity’s innocence by ‘traumatizing’ women and children (in the nuclear family), alienating ‘poor’ workers through capitalist exploitation, destroying the natural environment through science and raping the eternal beauty of the Noble Savage through self-serving racism.
It is truly over. The tipping point has been passed. All that’s left is acrimonious name calling, sarcastic confessions to criminality and crying in your beer. Woe is “we.” Woe is “we.”
