Politics in an age of fiction

05/12/05

Perhaps in a way all rulership has to be a kind of fiction. The difference is that [King of Spain Philip II's] equivalent today, the head of the globe's 'lone superpower,' is at the center of a vast machine for the creation of fiction, a kind of ever-growing assembly line for its production. I suppose the truth is that the human ego -- whether that of the man who 'runs' America (and desires to run much of the [known] world) or the CEO of any globe-spanning transnational corporation -- only has so much expandability. Even a single megalomanic ego, an ego stretched to the limits, would have no way of taking in, no less governing, such a world. Not really. Perhaps this is why, increasingly, the President of the United States has himself become a kind of fiction...
