>Why, then, should we not read Parsifal from today’s perspective: the kingdom of Klingsor in Act II is a domain of digital phantasmagoria, of virtual amusement— Harry Kupfer was right to stage Klingsor’s magic garden as a video parlour, with Flower Girls reduced to fragments of female bodies (faces, legs . . .) appearing on dispersed T V screens. Is Klingsor not a kind of Master of the Matrix, manipulating virtual reality, a combination of Murdoch and Gates? And when we pass from Act II to Act III, do we not effectively pass from fake virtual reality to the ‘desert of the real’ , the ‘wasteland’ in the aftermath of ecological catastrophe which derailed the ‘normal’ functioning of nature. Is Parsifal not a model for Keanu Reeves in The Matrix, with Laurence Fishburne in the role of Gurnemanz?

I love classical music; I’m a mega Wagnerian – Wagner, Shemberg, Mozart, Schubert, Schuman. I listen for hours every day. I work to loud music. […] Of the latest music, I like bands like the German one, Rammstein. I disagree with those who think they are some kind of proto-fascist band. They do this wonderful thing – deconstructing from within; the charm of fascism, overidentifying with it and making it ridiculous. […]


I thought you couldn't concentrate with loud music playing?

>"Throughout 2009, the gay community in the Netherlands increasingly began turning towards anti-immgrant nationalist parties. The reason was simple: the Muslim community locally, as the strongest and most organized immigrant group, had become more and more vociferous in its homophobia, including even occasional recourse to violent acts."
>"How should one react to this tension? Who should we support? The pure liberal multiculturalist line gives a clear answer: we should support tolerance and symmetry. It is unfair to demand of the gay community that they work hard to convince the Muslims of their acceptability-they are what they are and nobody should be made go justify what he or she is. The first move should thus be made by the Muslim immigrants-it is they who have to accept a multiplicity of (religious, sexual,etc.) ways of life, accept that the properly political struggle shouldn't concern particularly ways of life. There is also an obvious asymmetry: when in November 2009, the Swiss decided in a referendum to prohibit the construction of minarets. Turkey (along with other Muslim countries) vigorously protested-calls were made for the boycotts of Swiss banks etc. But what about the fact that in Turkey itself, a country which sees itself as modern and wants to join the European Union, the construction of all sacred objects with the exception of mosques is prohibited? How about a new Catholic church or synagogue in Istanbul, or even better a center for atheist studies in Riyadh?"
>"What nonetheless complicated the simplicity of this position is the underlying gap in economic and political power: the tension is ultimately between the upper middle class Dutch gays and the poor exploited Muslim immigrants. In other words, what effectively fuels the Muslim animosity is their perception of gays as part of a privileged elite which exploits them and treats them like outcasts. Our question to the gays should be what did you do to help immigrants socially? Why not go there, act like a Communist, organize a struggle with them, work together?"
>"The solution of the tension is not to be found in multicultural tolerance and understanding, but in a shared struggle on behalf of universality which cuts diagonally across both communities, dividing each of them against itself but uniting the marginalized in both camps."
>"Something along these lines occurred during 2009 in the West Bank village of Bilin, where a Jewish lesbian group, complete with pierced lips, tattoos etc, came each week to demonstrate against the village's partition and demolition, joining ranks with conservative Palestinian women, each group developing a respect for each other. It is through such events, rare as they are, that the conflict between fundamentalists is exposed for what it is: a pseudo struggle, a false conflict obsfucating the true issue."

>The left is egalitarian the right is hierarchical. Modern elites are a result of dialectics between these polar opposites, which is ironically why they have to be destroyed by both egalitarian and hierarchical reactionaries.

None of you can refute this:
>"Here we encounter the basic paradox of liberalism. An anti-ideological and anti-utopian stance is inscribed into the very core of the liberal vision: liberalism conceives itself as a "politics of the lesser evil" It's ambition is to bring about the "least worst society possible" thus preventing greater evil, since it considers any attempt to directly impose a positive good as the ultimate source of all evil. Churchill's quip about democracy being the worst of all possible systems with the exception of all others holds even better for liberalism. Such a view is sustained by a profound pessimism about human nature; man is a selfish and envious animal and if one attempts to build a political system appealing to his goodness and altruism the result will be the worst kind of terror(both the Stalinists and Jacobins presupposed human virtue). However the liberal critique of the "tyranny of the Good" comes at a price: the more the program permeates society the more it turns into its opposite. The claim to want nothing but the lesser evil, once asserted as the principle of the new global order gradually replicates the very features of the enemy it claims to be fighting against. The global liberal order clearly presents itself as the best of all possible worlds; its modest rejection of utopias ends with the imposition of its own market liberal utopia which will supposedly become reality when we subject ourselves fully to the mechanisms of the markets universal human rights. Behind this lurks the ultimate totalitarian nightmare; the vision of a New Man who has left behind all the old ideological baggage."
