What’s Goin’ On by Mussmann
June 5th, 2019
June 5th, 2019 in America. We see Stonewall at 50. An Anniversary for liberation. 1989 Tiananmen Square Protests in China–the Berlin Wall comes down in 1989 the 20th Century ends. The Iron Curtain rises the iron rice bowl emerges–bigger and better than ever. Democracy is Communism just spelled differently. Marx is history’s future. We begin to see the neo-liberal hammer come down on our heads–we are squeezed- time is a commodity–space an asset. The nuclear-family rises–assimilation is king/queen. Queer is style. Gay unhinged. Hetero-normative looks for a landing. Women remove yourselves from the picture–you thought you had a turn—well think again. Choice is not yours to be. Control is a callous. Rise up or shut up. Nancy resists a revolution…we are near cooked. They step over one another as they climb Mount Everest–some too dead to care that the boot is in their face. We are already done with this century. The 21st looks unsolvable.
