Drawing (236) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"At the regulars' tables, late capitalism leads to the highest emotions. Political Darwinists can't find anything bad about what is forging ahead at a safe distance. From that distance it is declared that there is no alternative to the revolutionary designer state. Twenty-nine half-naked and bald Chinese recruits in the S.C. Johnson Administration Building in Racine, Wisconsin, which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935, prove what it's all about through the fact that they are well-fed. The columns of the open-plan office act as stalactites of reason, finally a roof over one's head. A stake for burning people from the Thirty Years' War appears from the left. Propagated time and again and welcome to be witnessed from afar: the exploitation of humans for a cause. A movement and it's dead, a raging nature and a history blazing up in cycles: society as a beast, the lacerated skin of civilization. And those to whom it happens have the last thought: 'All this just can't be true.'" (From: Schwarze Blöcke, SchwarzHandPresse 2010).
