Cydonia – Mars Colony – the present.
A psychocivilisational experiment has produced an evolved Corporate-State Apparatus in which all social & political relations are fatally entrapped inside an hallucination.
In such a world, where the irreal has become the last viable human habitat, inhumanity represents the ﬁnal refuge of “ideological struggle.”
Yet to murder an illusion, it is necessary to become an illusion.
And the escape from the mind-control labyrinth leads through the uncharted Maze of false disillusionment, where there is no Theseus & myth itself is the Minotaur.
Thus spake Assmann.

“They were marching like fugitives around the city. They were hiding yet they
didn’t know what was after them. They were in murky depths in a city that
now spread out like a swamp. L-Bomb would sometimes close her right eye
to see more clearly by bringing an uncoupled luxuriance to her visioning. They
threaded themselves in & out of streets, roads, parks, broadways, markets,
shopping malls, squares without ever being individual entities. They suffered
the abundance of a kind of inexhaustible intermediate state. They were like
animals of oblivion, & this was a literal fact too as all ancestors end up with
apes & their ancestors, ultimately the stars. They were like creatures rooting
around, anyone watching would assume there was some sort of fickleness
in play as they would suddenly swing round & make off in a completely
new direction to the one they had been following, as if thoughts were being
freshly corrupted & their despair a butterfly.”

INTERIOR MINISTRY, DEATH MASK SUTRA (2018), published by Alienist magazine
“But these extravagant forebodings dwindled in the light of reason. True, the word ‘Plague’ had been uttered; true, at this very moment one or two victims were being seized & laid low by the disease. Still, that cld stop, or be stopped. It was only a matter of lucidly recognising what had to be recognised; of expelling extraneous shadows & doing what needed to be done. Then the Plague wld come to an end, because it was unthinkable, or, rather, because one thought of it on misleading lines. If, as was most likely, it died out, all wld be well. If not, one wld know it anyhow for what it was.” (Albert Camus)
“From an epidemic point of view, the Plague is the only disease exactly resembling art.” (Antonin Artaud)
The revolution is now. Plague City, year zero. A contemporary retelling of Boccaccio’s Decameron, played-out against the backdrop of the 2000 Prague anti-globalisation riots, DEATH MASK SUTRA is a relentless parody of neoliberal economics & light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel political irrealism.

ALIENISMO, EN GUARDIA
Un Alienista es una persona que lucha con armas no convencionales, usando metodos no convencionales. Tenemos que ser buenos estrategas para compensar el hecho que las defensas del totalitarianismo económico cultural son de naturaleza asimétrica. Las armas del Alienista puden parecer inferiores al enemigos, pero desde el punto de vista semántico, tenemos una superioridad indudable. La severa limitación puesta sobre la conformidad, significa que el alienista debe ser imaginativo y creativo. Continue reading “ALIENISMO”

“Since art is dead, it has evidently become extremely easy to disguise cops as artists.” Debord
That avantgardism has long been amortised to the socalled Culture Industry in no way detracts from its efficiency as a disguise for art capitalism’s dark operators: reactionary elements within the field of self-professed “political art” whose role is that of infiltrator, chaos agent, provocateur.
THE MYTH OF THE ABSENCE OF MYTH
An immense fraud has been perpetuated in contemporary thought, founded on the persuasion that modern life is a malaise – a decadence – produced by an “absence of myth.” It has dwelt in modernity’s shadow from the outset, the most fervent purveyor of its decadence, like a jealous doppelgänger. Yet, far from abolishing myth, modernity is in fact constituted by the greatest myth of all: the myth of perpetual progress; of the extraction & consumption of natural resources without end & the magical transformation of human waste back into nature. This is what the blood-&-soil of the Corporate-State amounts to: the belief that – in greater abundance than the old gods, at the service of individual gratification & without cost to the collective conscience – Capitalism will provide. Continue reading “DEATH BY RESURRECTION”
Protest only serves as the prenatal expression of an attitude that must still give birth to direct action. Continue reading “NO EXIT”
