"You say you don't know what is going to happen next. When right-wing populist vampires are busy sucking the blood of the European underclass and have secured the US presidency for the king of the undead. Here's a hint: barbarism. That's what is going to happen. Still, the truly fake newsmakers tell me that there is no pattern, that it's all very "unpredictable". Across the West, we see real wages decrease, social services evaporate and towns and industry shut. And the bolder fake newsmakers tell me they can't see a connection. Right-wing populism and the threat or experience of poverty? When have these two things ever been found rising together in history before? I can't think of a single example! Let's blame the Russians and the racists." - Helen Razer
Lies have long legs: they are ahead of their time. The conversion of all questions of truth into questions of power, a process that truth itself cannot escape if it is not to be annihilated by power, not only suppresses truth as in earlier despotic orders, but has attacked the very heart of the distinction between true and false, which the hirelings of logic were in any case diligently working to abolish. So Hitler, of whom no one can say whether he died or escaped, survives. - Theodore Adorno, Minima Moralia (1951)
