The Supersystem : The World's Number One New and Improved Ultimate Nihilist Theory of All Social Reality
The world's foremost unpublished social critic describes the Supersystem, the governing accumulation of reinforcing myths, practices, inclinations, understandings that underlie the corruption of contemporary social reality. This work is necessarily deficient in footnotes and rarefied scholarship, since to document the supersystem would take the wherewithal of a thousand sequestered monks. This book is then rather a deep assay of the contours of our present social reality, showing how from so many angles the supersystem is blocking possibilities for social uplift. Each section of the work is an extensive course in how to understand and cope with our modern predicament, written with skill and verve and an fundamental eye for absurdity and futility. Other books will certainly provide more documentation for the truths that are becoming so clear, the associated failures of our courts, our schools, our legal system, our politics, our degenerate religious charlantary, but nowhere else is that very deluge of nihilistic reality given such trenchant, precise depiction. Are there questions about the modern world that bedevil the reader? Where is hope, or meaning, or success, or finding good times in a social world of such stunnign vacuity? Only a person who has lived within the core of that supersystem, who was raced along the edges of a spurious liberal arts education, then rejecting the bromides of the professoriate and the horrors of hipster capitalism could provide the life-long grounding in skepticism and literary boldness that the established, mainstream voices in the defunct world of contemporary writing have established. Every one of the copious sections of this work is meant to be read for pleasure, to be comprehended, to be appreciated for its encapsulation of the features of the modern social world, from work to sex to popular culture to burners-on-high fictionists to the shared ignorance of quantum physics. The guarantee is that this work is the product of decades of sustained work and research and investigation of the sociology of our times, just not in the dead-end form of the ivory tower corporate-endowment supported scholarly format, but from the undiscovered outside.
