Divine Hunger and the Cannibal War Machine http://en.m4.cn/archives/15747.html
The logic of the modern world order is thus necessarily violent and cannibalistic. Persons, places, and things are perpetually consumed through forms of commodity production and price speculation that profit from the systematic creation of social chaos and its re-ordering through the violence and destruction of high-tech military and police performanceAt the same time, the cannibal war-machine spiritually redeems liberal democracy and financial profitability through the structural adjustment of nationality and locality to the discipline of democratic free-market conditions.
This is directly achieved through forms of economic and military violence that obliterate prior collectivity and political organization.However, the profitability of this process is made occult through a Western liberal discourse of democratic transparency and terrorist conspiracy.Rational, Infinite, Justice-seeking violence conjoined to the agonistic procedures of Science and Research, thus perversely promises pre-Apocalypse global redemption through faithful adherence to the cult of the Modern.
However, our colonial history of relentless immiseration of local communities for the last 500 years and a 20th century apotheosis of the Modern which killed millions, shows us that the Sacred Empowerment of the Modern is necessarily violent and so perpetually stimulates the Divine Hunger of The Cannibal War Machine.
