This is really excellent; I feel tho that one needs the postmodern and
postmodern analysis more than anything at the moment - for me Mike Davis
work is crucial to understanding what is happening, even what we might
assemble out of the bloody inverse of Baudrillard. We haven't returned to
the real - we're sintered it, mashed it, transformed it into plasma and as
you say, pyrotechnics.

The very writing you do of the subtance of all of this is against the
virtual and yet conveyed by it. Ontology is changing at high-speed; even
the ideological horror of bin Laden is based on virtual satanism and we'd
better understand it -
