You and Powers make an interesting point about the sense of catharsis people get from watching some apocalypse movies – particularly the frisson of excitement when a landmark building representing authority is destroyed.

I remember one of my old English teachers (the wonderful Peter Mackintosh – who looked like Count Dracula in his academic robes) back in 1977 getting us school children to explore similar feelings when we read Day of the Triffids (particularly the section describing shops crumbling into the streets of London) and Lord of the Flies – the sense of dread counterbalanced by a sense of wild release.

Stephen King evokes a similar fascination at the start of his epic horror novel The Stand, when he describes the rapid spread of the plague and equally rapid breakdown in civilised society. Part of us hopes it never happens and part of us takes a guilty pleasure in wondering just how (heroically) we would cope.

Cheers

@HuwSayer

Like other progressives I have the utter mis-fortune of having in my daily life, he is entirely incapable of framing a discussion because HE IS WITHOUT FACTS.

Only blind hatred is in his heart because blind ignorance is his god.

To adapt to what is possible in practice, the political spectrum’s well tested parties have had to shed any previously upheld ideological rigour. An otherwise vacant lot of hopes and dreams can be imagined as the dumping ground for the political spectrum’s ideologically hazardous waste (iHazte). The nihilistic wrecking ball of the ZA consists of that iHazte, which, when put into practice, reduces to rubble anything built according to the specifications drawn from the unprincipled principles of the practically possible. Post-Zombie Apocalypse (P-ZA), however, after the wave of satisfaction amongst the rabble breaks upon the rubble, what’s left to do? What prospects would await those who might build anew amongst the P-ZA rubble? Perhaps the Mayans provide a relevant history to consider in this respect.

When the Mayan civilisation collapsed, the various societies that had been united within it ceased to support the centralised authority that organised the construction and maintenance of the Mayan cities, which the Mayan peoples abandoned for a decentralised system of village life. It’s thought that the human population of the Earth in those days was about 1% of what it is today. When the Mayans left their cities, then, each person on Earth had about 100 times more space available than any one of us today, and due to substantial degradation of the productive capacity of the environment in the meantime, each had substantially more than 100 times the subsistence-enabling resources that would await a Post-Zombie-Apocalypse Pioneer (P-ZA Pi) today. Also, there were no arsenals of thermonuclear devices or other modern WMD to worry about when the Mayans went out for P-ZA. Thus, while the timing of the Mayan P-ZA Pis was well suited for surviving a P-ZA, the ingredients for survival just aren’t abundant for any would-be P-ZA Pi in our time.

The next full moon falls on October 18. It is estimated that, without authorisation to exceed its current debt ceiling, the USA will default on October 17. If the USA is in default on October 18, the accompanying full moon might then be dubbed the Default Moon. If that Moon hits the eyes of some new P-ZA Pis, ’at’s a worry. To use an analogy, once Death-Metal-Punk-Rap is where the musical centre of gravity is found, hasn’t music collapsed into a singularity, beyond the harmonic event horizon of which any melody will strain nevermore? And they’ll be singin’, “bye-bye missed American Pi…”

Whether the tea party itself is accurately reflecting the 99%, I think the point is that there is a significant number of tea party supporters who don’t buy the NAFTA espousing, FED sycophants, “market” (the market that says don’t renew food stamps but give trillions to banks to save “capitalism)acolytes that have resulted in 40 years of wage stagnation as well as wage reduction in the last decade. These people see no good reason for things to continue as they have been, and have no interest in saving or having the present state of affairs continue. They are mad as hell, and they are for whoever is the most angry and wants change. I doubt that the tea party really wants to stick it to wall street, but in the choice between tweedle dee democrats and dweedle dumb republicans, as least the tea party republicans act angry (I think they should be angry about inequality, not Obamacare, but most at the bottom are inarticulate about their anger).
When President Obama appointed The Bernanke, Timmy Geithner, and the whole Bob Rubin/Summers Wall street deregulation crowd, he just reaffirmed that Clinton, Bush, and Obama really are all butt boys of wall street, and that rising GDP that goes to the 1% is important, but the decline in median income is not.

However, I believe the interpretation given here is exactly reversed : tea partiers represent the last gasp of the .01% that should be hanging from trees already, as their entire agenda is to ensure the top captures an ever larger share. Fight Club is hardly a story of maximizing corporate revenue.
