From any angle...
Whatever angle you look at it from, there's no escape from the present. That's notthe least of its virtues. For those who want absolutely to have hope, it knocks downevery support. Those who claim to have solutions are proven wrong almostimmediately. It's understood that now everything can only go from bad to worse."There's no future for the future" is the wisdom behind an era that for all itsappearances of extreme normalcy has come to have about the consciousness levelof the first punks.The sphere of political representation is closed. From left to right, it's the samenothingness acting by turns either as the big shots or the virgins, the same salesshelf heads, changing up their discourse according to the latest dispatches from theinformation service.

The fatherland was ablaze all the way to downtown everywhere,with fires that were methodically snuffed out. Whole streets went up in flames of solidarity in Barcelona and no one but the people who lived there even found outabout it. And the country hasn’t stopped burning since. Among the accused we finddiverse profiles, without much in common besides a hatred for existing society; notunited by class, race, or even by neighborhood. What was new wasn’t the“suburban revolt,” since that was already happening in the 80s, but the rupture withits established forms. The assailants weren’t listening to anybody at all anymore,not their big brothers, not the local associations assigned to help return things tonormal. No “SOS Racism
