Friends, two new tracts from the Current State of Fashion are out:
Tractatus Fashionablo-Politicus: The Political Philosophy of The Current State of Fashion and The Mark of Cain: The Aesthetic Superiority of the Fashionable.
In the Current State of Fashion, Otto von Busch asks,
“What if fashion was a state? What kind of state would it be? Probably not a democracy. Something more sinister, more controlling, more elitist; a state of exclusion and violence.
“A state with no dictator, but with a population all too eager to follow every command and demarcation. A population that happily embrace the superiority consumerism evokes and turn the terror to each other through acts of judgments, micro-aggression, micro-violence, bullying and passionate micro-fascism. Fashion is a totalitarian state hidden under the consumer paradigm of ‘free choice’, a mythical superpower with a political mannerism in the footsteps of what political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls ‘Inverted Totalitarianism’.
“This is the Current State of Fashion.” (Source: The Current State of Fashion)
Both tracts are available for free download, and also available for purchase through Amazon.
