Bored and terrified all at once. "The eye converts the news image to fear enzyme."


I think this is partly what it's about. News as spectacle as fear induces moral mutation in the species. You can't act (unless you can install a bunker 24 inch reinforced concrete) to protect yourself. You can only consume the news image and convert it to fear enzyme, transfixed, rabbit in the headlights.

The fears aren't fears of the immediate environment, sabre tooth tigers, falling rocks, flash floods, there's no direct experience. It's a horror movie we watch, but one in which we are somehow involved, inside of. Displacement of the body image? Translocation of the self to focal alert.

liberal america, outraged about four years of chaotic rule by a wannabe authoritarian and driven by desperately needed progressive social change,...nominates a 78-year old moderate democrat who's been in the DC swamp for 47 years.

this list is certainly eye-opening when all put in one place, but in fairness you could do this for pretty much any year and it would look stunning. 2020 probably tops past years due to COVID and world lockdown alone, though.

Trump advertising those beans and whatnot from the White House. North Korea telling everyone to hand over their dogs for food.

Speaking of North Korea, we also learned that KJU's sister is the spitting image of Dominic Cummings.
