21 I sphincter, therefore I am

Look at me, then. I\u2019m a broken man with a mind that attacks me as much as it support me; a wretch, a no-one who has contributed little to this world, not martyr, nor antagonist nor navel-gazer. Just a simple insignificant human being, as hypocritical and imperfect as anyone, who cannot get everything right and is not willing to give my soul for a cause, who compulsively put myself down and repeatedly wanted to snuff myself out. This is the point.

But I have a sense, as we all do, of the nobility of human nature. In its most limited selfish state. In its most humiliated state. A nobility. It is in every human being, without exception. Even in those betraying it for power, fame and domination. Shitting on their integrity. Shitting on each other \u2013 shitting on every corner of our beautiful planet and denying it, defying it, though the stench reeks in our nostrils and the stains are plain for all to see. What did the privileged squanderers ever do to deserve this position? That\u2019s what we are doing to nobility. That is what we have done to dignity. If that is what I\u2019ve been able to diagnose from merely scratching the surface, what is the real extent of denial?

Oh, shit! Just look at this\u2026 I\u2019ve just seen an on-line advertisement for a special edition of the complete series of \u2018Man From Uncle.\u2019 I\u2019m not a particular fan of MFU but look at the marketing. How could anyone resist? The shiny sturdy chrome case oozes quality. FORTY-ONE DVDs with the MFU logo on! Each three-disc set in radioactive, health and safety yellow, danger and classified red, trustworthy eye-spy blue and reassuring global green. Each set of three DVDs with its matching fold-out DVD case, with the MFU logo on. Not just the series but extra material. Secret documents and campaigns. Directors commentaries. And behind behind the scenes scenes. Deleted scenes that were too cover-up to air. Even a Woman from Uncle, episode! Four matching bound outer cases to protect the discs secluded in the DVD cases. An operator\u2019s manual includes you in the team. And just look at the size of that matching glossy, two-inch thick volume on everything,ever ything, that went into the series. All with the MFU logo on. The craftsmanship. It\u2019s really a work of art. And the nostalgia. Over twohundr ed hours of viewing and reading. Sweet sheer delusion. It\u2019s guaranteed to make you feel eight again every time you look at it and show it to anyone. Your MFU identity card has a guilt globe on it to prove you\u2019re a world citizen. And I can get all this for just two pieces of paper with the queen\u2019s miserable mug on.

But how can I have it without capitalism? That\u2019s the question. Oh, well\u2026 I\u2019ll have to deny myself that, while I chew on my 29p hotdogs that have been reformed from goodness knows what, made by illegal immigrants living fifteen to a room and employed by the biggest retailer in the world to work sixty-hour weeks for the price of this set. Or should I deny my poverty and just go for it?

Brown wants us to deny that we have spent more than we could ever pay back and he says we should continue to borrow and spend more than any of us could ever want or need in a lifetime. Apparently, you can blow out an oil fire using dynamite. He obviously wants the biggest balls and the biggest penis in the urinals. Any confident, contented man around the world knows, the size and shape argument is totally out of his hands. It is completely dependent upon the one he wishes to satisfy. His sole ambition is to be the world\u2019s greatest lover. Fuck frugality and modesty, that\u2019s no fun. When you want to fuck the whole world, you\u2019ve got to be a genuine nymphomaniac and we know, they\u2019re never satisfied. \u201cLiquidity or demand, liquidity or demand; funnel funnel funnel, push push push, mince mince mince, grind grind grind,\u201d is the only language these rapists know, because they justcannot get out of bed. More consumerism, more deforestation, more demand on fossil fuels \u2013 more floods, more extinct species, but it\u2019ll keep the wheels of commerce turning and as we have seen, that\u2019s what makes the world go round. We might just as well have Jeremy Clarkson at the wheel. I detected his customary air of sardonic distain when he said, after being asked if he was for conservation, \u201cThe planet is more than capable of taking care of itself.\u201d And I agree. But Jeremy has
