Drawing (520) from THE BASIS OF MAKE-UP

"China, the construction of the dam at the Yellow River through manpower. History is written on the backs of humans; at times they can even decipher it. GUL = GHOUL = GHUL = Brute = Monster. HYS = History = Hysteria. Progress and its victims exemplified by automated chicken slaughter: head chopped off, pipe in the anus, and the giblets blown out with compressed air. All democracies in the Western world since the Greeks are based on slaveholder societies. The outsourcing of value creation is a long-established cultural ideal. Even the very last proletarian profited from being allowed to feel a racist sense of belonging to a value-creating community. That's where the Janus-faced nature of social revolutions has its origin. As long as capitalism hadn't asserted itself globally, human resources that closed their minds to its wisdom were allowed to be destroyed with the blessing of the church. At the bottom left, sadomasochist telephone sex that approaches this situation in a playful manner." (From: Black Blocks, Cinema Scope #46, 2011).
