We see in our cities persons covered all over in tattoos, invariably accompanied by piercings, often nose rings these days, and these large round inserts into the earlobes.
What is behind this?
It is a rejection of postmodernity and the attempt to become like one of Rousseau’s Noble Savages (which are of course entirely mythical creatures).
Also it has the advantage of making you unemployable; freeing you for a life of leisure in the Marxist welfare state of the West. This leisure will be of temporary value when our systems collapse due to an overgrowth of leeches and generally hostile populations of foreign origin with their own agenda.
Anyway until then, we can expect more of this. Ugliness you pay for and a consumerist acquisition of pretended superstition. And attempts at really becoming a superstitious person: Our modern day witch-imitators or neo-Odinists and all other kinds of esoterics are trying to become naiive uneducated believers in pristine “untainted” cultures (which generally had some element of cannibalism or other quite unsavory ingredient.). Usually in vain, so they switch from witchcraft to Druidism to satanism to whatever.
And it’s an interesting market. Because the product is so simple.
