Art and Hell

All art today is just the meaningless raving of idiots in Hell. That is the true art of Hell: banal, loud,empty, strident, hollow. We cannot go backwards to religious fairytales: we cannot go forward unless into further meaninglessness, incoherence, or silence. If Hell is the absolute absence of god, then art and the religious impulse are one and the same. Capitalism is the economics of hell: no final reward to make sacrifice for. The cross is redundant as symbol or voting slip. Art cannot exist without 'god'. Art cannot exist under capitalism. Art is in Hell, where there precisely is no art, nor can there ever be.
