The end of truthfulness – the dessert of the world’s vanity.
This is the best play you haven’t seen. This is the funniest play that you haven’t heard of. This is the most passionate play that will make Jesus’s stigmas wet and his dense hair touch Trump’s yellow-ish ponytail. Believe us, we are the prophets of today, we will lead you to the bright tomorrow. Let’s have a party of gods so that we don’t need to ride Putin’s cock.
In the era of mass consumerism the society is changing and so is its norms and the behaviour of the contemporary human. There is completely new socialist world forming. The hate for ideologies and politics are spreading. The social identity is eroding. The de-stabilisation of self is growing. The sensation of mass fear is spreading. Why? Today, it is rather easy to speak about society and the absurdity that surround us. But to be silent is to surrender to this massive pile of shit that tries to ruin the last drops of humanity and to make us part of this stinking mass.
But who cares about what is happening with us, really? Who cares about what is happening with others, with the whole world? We are not going to change anything. What is important to us is to be happy, content, full, relaxed. We are short distance runners, we don’t care about the environment and the people that surround us, we don’t care about our children. Today’s man can endure anything: “trumpism”, “putinism”, fascism, the refuse of Christianity, violence against children and other joys of nowadays. The world is starting to appear more and more like a synthetic field, where we all feel disoriented, where we panic. We are afraid and we try to control everything, sterilize everything, synthesize the surroundings. The same surroundings that drive us nuts. We are nuts. We look for meaning and truthfulness in every step of the way and at the same time we run away from it. Antichrist is an unsterile performance about values and virtues.
