The See Saw Of Kitsch

Maxims And Reflections:

You know, Grant Morrison predicted all of this around '97 or '98. He said that the turn of the millennium would be marked by a cultural cycle of tight-clothes, violent attitudes and power-worship. He invoked this energy in his comic book Marvel Boy, the ideology of whose eponymous hero is named in the text as “Zen Fascism.” Morrison went on to predict that the next cycle, later in the first decade of the twenty-first century, would be a return to pastoralism. He claimed that the popularity of the Lord of the Rings films was an early indication of this, and I would add that the goddess-centered ethos of The Da Vinci Code as well as any return of Jung-Neumann-Campbell also signals this cycle. I am tempted to become a mage.
