You thought the monster was some dictator, but actually it isn’t even human – it is a system, a structure, a substance, a chemical, an ideology, an economy, a process, a fear, a ghost, a language, a border, an event, a story, a history.
We are now inside of this realization, and we look to the monster as an enlightened barbarian par excellence. And it presents a terrifying new project with regard to the handling of history, to the prospect of confronting its horrors, of accounting for its losses.
Welcome to the diabolical cultural production of the 21st century that is nothing but the monster of history.
