In the Auction Barn of Time

An American Friend on MyBunghole comments about these new RAF bombing raids:
“Dragged into another failed enterprise.”
As an amateur historian of no small salience & power, and as a naqshbandiyya dervish 73rd in Al Muasisa [‘The Institute’ eg — editor], one objectively may only reply:
There are many signs of the halting of the Late Modern age of the Old Atlantic West, including the observable fact that from about 1980, the very APPEARANCE of things stopped actually changing, our urban arcologies, vehicle, styles including tats, piercing, the lot.
By 1980, this all had ‘been done’ & even the patient search for really ‘new’ forms of sexual excess ground to a halt (mainly one supposes on account of the dreary fact of an EXHAUSTED tally by now of as-yet-unplumbed orifices.
There only remained the unplunged depths of political & military failure; and, because of the final reduction of reduction of all professional forms of ‘work’ in the North Atlantic world to nothing beyond the stale category of ‘helping professionalism’, this category too of final collapse was assured.
Indeed, the very police, the trans-Atlantic legions of the damned frowsting it as ‘sales associates’ and the burgeoning ‘volunteer’ NO-WIN militaries in all the Autumn Lands in the World, all were sunk in the mire beyond rescue by the time of the strategically absent [NB] floundering in the Arabian Gulf in 1991….
In short & by the time the short twentieth century that began in 1912 with the symbolic sinking of RMS Titanic had come to its (early) end in the Fall of 1989, the hay was THEN already in the mow for the ‘EuroAm’ West.
