every time I spend any considerable time thinking/writing about UNESCO I initially have a burst of energy that soon degrades into blank, questionless fear. It’s not writer’s block, it’s not that I have nothing to say: I am literally just so terrified of this organization and its neo-colonial allegiances that I don’t even know how my juvenile notes on the many ‘violences’ (symbolic and material) it perpetuates will do any good, like, ever. UNESCO=Uncouth Nationalist Eternal Soul Crushing Oligarchy is more like it.
I finally actually own a book by Zizek (no carons today children) because I decided to cough up the money for The Sublime Object of Ideology instead of checking out all the books in the library authored by him in the last 30 years and hoarding them for myself. I can finally write in the margins since its mine even though half of what I write are just question or exclamation marks.
