Words fucking fail me.
It feels like defeat, like we have turned some terrible corner and have fallen...
I knew the aftermath to CharlieHebdo would be bad (and Marine le Pen and her vile cronies have certainly not disappointed), but...
We now clearly inhabit some nightmarish era of Media Inversion, have entered an Age of Untruths and malignant state-sponsored falsehoods - an Unenlightenment - where the opposite of everything you believe is true. We have fallen prey to ignorance and superstition once again. It's all over my Twitter time-line.
I read that Hollande stood up and walked out in disgust during Netanyahu's speech, but for the wrong reasons, I suspect.
Paris wasn't killed by terrorist bullets, something else finished it off - a willingness to let thieves and child-murders smile for the cameramen of Le Monde. Yesterday's parade demonstrated that 'satire' is still alive and well.
We need a new Situationism that tears through this tissue of lies, that illuminates as it disrupts.
1871 - 1968 - 2015 RIP Paris.
