is a question of power
power it self must be
abolished ---- and not
solely because of the
refusal to be dominated
which is at the heart of
all traditional struggles--
but also, just as
violently,
in the refusal to dominate.
intelligence cannot , can
never be in power
because

of this double
refusal
power has ransacked
all of the strategies
of simulation :
parody,
irony,
and self mockery ------
leaving the left
with only a phantom
of the truth
the terms
"simulacrum"
"simulation"
and "virtual"
summarize this liquidation
in which every
signification is eliminated
by its own sign, and the
profusion of signs parodies
a by now unobtainable reality.

"I never pass a wooden fetish,gilded Buddha, or Mexican idol with out telling my self : that maybe the true God " Charles Baudelaire

After crossing a high, primeval jungle, we came upon a system of aboveground caves in the mountains where an order had survived from the time of the first missionaries till now, its monks continuing the work of conversion among the natives. In an immense central grotto with a Gothically pointed roof, Mass was celebrated according to the most ancient rites. we joined the ceremony and witnessed its climax: toward a wooden bust of God the Father fixed high on a wall of the cave a priest raised a Mexican fetish.
