F***ERS. ARABESQUES

22 May 2012

Every epoch has its own heroes. They are the ones about whom books are written and films are created; it is them who are eagerly followed; they are knights, warriors, thinkers, poets, and musicians… Yet, times change, and heroes change, too.

Unlike their predecessors, the heroes of our mysterious time don’t make war, they don’t discover new lands, they don’t write books and, most often, don’t read them either. Being children of a “chaotic democracy”, they simply live. They go shopping, watch TV, drink beer, and pick their noses… You can meet them in the metro, in the street, in the lift, and even at your home. T

hey have conquered this country without any slightest effort. When you think about whether they’ve always been as numerous, it gets more and more difficult to find enough arguments for a firm “no”.
