“
By the time Stalin died on 5 March 1953, the Soviet Union boasted the largest and best-funded scientific establishment in history. It was at once the glory and the laughing stock of the intellectual world.

[I] threw open the door to find Rob sit¬≠ting on the low stool in front of my book¬≠case, sur¬≠round¬≠ed by card¬≠board box¬≠es. He was seal¬≠ing the last one up with tape and string. There were eight box¬≠es - eight box¬≠es of my books bound up and ready for the base¬≠ment! "He looked up and said, 'Hel¬≠lo, dar¬≠ling. Don't mind the mess, the care¬≠tak¬≠er said he'd help me car¬≠ry these down to the base¬≠ment.' He nod¬≠ded to¬≠wards my book¬≠shelves and said, 'Don't they look won¬≠der¬≠ful?' "Well, there were no words! I was too ap¬≠palled to speak. Sid¬≠ney, ev¬≠ery sin¬≠gle shelf - where my books had stood - was filled with ath¬≠let¬≠ic tro¬≠phies: sil¬≠ver cups, gold cups, blue rosettes, red rib¬≠bons. There were awards for ev¬≠ery game that could pos¬≠si¬≠bly be played with a wood¬≠en ob¬≠ject: crick¬≠et bats, squash rac¬≠quets, ten¬≠nis rac¬≠quets, oars, golf clubs, ping-‚Äčpong bats, bows and ar¬≠rows, snook¬≠er cues, lacrosse sticks, hock¬≠ey sticks and po¬≠lo mal¬≠lets. There were stat¬≠ues for ev¬≠ery¬≠thing a man could jump over, ei¬≠ther by him¬≠self or on a horse. Next came the framed cer¬≠tificates - for shoot¬≠ing the most birds on such and such a date, for First Place in run¬≠ning races, for Last Man Stand¬≠ing in some filthy tug of war against Scot¬≠land. "All I could do was scream, 'How dare you! What have you DONE?! Put my books back!' "Well, that's how it start¬≠ed. Even¬≠tu¬≠al¬≠ly, I said some¬≠thing to the ef¬≠fect that I could nev¬≠er mar¬≠ry a man whose idea of bliss was to strike out at lit¬≠tle balls and lit¬≠tle birds. Rob coun¬≠tered with re¬≠marks about damned blue¬≠stock¬≠ings and shrews. And it all de¬≠gen¬≠er¬≠at¬≠ed from there - the on¬≠ly thought we prob¬≠ably had in com¬≠mon was, What the hell have we talked about for the last four months? What, in¬≠deed? He huffed and puffed and snort¬≠ed and left. And I un¬≠packed my books.

“
The population, who are, ultimately, indifferent to public affairs and even to their own interests, negotiate this indifference with an equally spectral partner and one that is similarly indifferent to its own will: the government [Ie pouvoir] . This game between zombies may stabilize in the long term. The Year 2000 will not take place in that an era of indifference to time itself - and therefore to the symbolic term of the millennium - will be ushered in by negotiation. Nowadays, you have to go straight from money to money, telegraphically so to speak, by direct transfer (that is the viral side of the matter). A viral revolution, then, more akin to the Glass Bead Game than to the steam engine, and admirably personified in Bernard Tapie's playboy face. For the look of money is reflected in faces. Gone are the hideous old capitalists, the old-style industrial barons wearing the masks of the suffering they have inflicted. Now there are only dashing playboys, sporty and sexual, true knights of industry, wearing the mask of the happiness they spread all around themselves. The world put on a show of despair after 1968. It's been putting on a big show of hope since 1980. No more tears, alright? Reaganite optimism, the pump ing up of the dollar. Fabius's glossy new look. Patriotic conviviality. Reluctance prohibited. The old pessimism was produced by the idea that things were getting worse and worse. The new pessimism is produced by the fact that everything is getting better and better. Supercooled euphoria. Controlled anaesthesia. I should like to see the equivalent of Bernard Tapie in the world of business emerge in the world of concepts. Buying up failing concepts, swallowing them up, dusting them off (firing all the deadbeats who are in the way), putting them back into circulation with a dynamic virginity, sending them shooting up on the Stock Exchange and then abandoning them afterwards like dogs. Some people do this very well. It is perhaps better to save tired concepts by maintaining them in a super cooled state like unemployed labour, or locking them away in interactive data banks kept alive on a respirator.
