...and underneath all of the apparent [news] frenzy a huge sense of ennui, that this is nothing more than theater--a dance of turkeys. All this frenetic activity hides a terrible Void, and it is deeper and deeper into that abyss that we are sliding, slowly but surely, on a daily basis.
What we are going thru is the disintegration of neoliberalism and globalization, basically the capitalist regime of the last 500 yrs. Macron said as much in a speech he gave a short while ago, talking (amazingly enuf) abt the end of Western hegemony. (Of course, he himself is a representative of that dying order.) Immanuel Wallerstein anticipated this, as did I, along with many other thinkers.
