In an earlier article here, Dr Tamm-Clattuc paraphrased Old C G Jung (pbuh), on the problem of mass unawareness. She said that in the psychological and moral desert of our postcontemporary life, it should come as no surprise that, for example in the case of America, 300 million zeros do not — actually they can not — add up to more than zero.
Given the nature of what is often willful, or bullheaded, unconsciousness, this is a “just so.”
It is also on all fours with each and every fine speech messrs McCain and Obama give, in what is by definition an essentially rigged campaign. That we are handed once again a false dichotomy in presidential politics is, in itself, a necessary consequence of the arbitrary “two party” notion. This last is superficially convincing because of the continued popularization of a once-valid historical perception. And, certainly, all this shortsighted and reassuring anachronism is advantageous to party managers and other professionals, for the short term at least. But, the fatal conception in the end leaves no room whatsoever, creatively, for the saving ex tertio inspiration.
It is the third unforeseen factor like the blackbird among cattails always, in which lies the salvation of individuals and, therefore, societies.
However, our late-modern politics now also are broadly anachronistic, in this second decade of the actual postmodern age. The objective corollary I tell you now three times is that hence, and once again objectively, they are doubly and objectively God-damned, certainly in terms of any no-longer-innate worthwhile possibility.
