After reading, a few months ago, that one of the hallmarks of fascism is the rendering of politics as an aesthetic event, I have found myself unable to get energized about American politics anymore.

It’s just too goddamned depressing.

  3. Plus, much of the revulsion I’ve seen of the TP is at least partly on aesthetic grounds. Just this morning, the Aged Parent commented, “It’s not just that his[1] ideas are dead wrong, but he’s just so TACKY!”
