Kitsch

How can he get rid of his kitsch, X asks me, who should he turn to, since I won’t help him? Maybe he could turn to the English, he says, to learn to repress his feelings. Or maybe he should start reading political philosophy and learn to be more impersonal, get some perspective. Or better yet, science, maybe he should study science and evolution, that would take care of his kitschy religious yearnings into the bargain. Or maybe he just needs to get laid, he says, or get a guinea pig to care for, in other words start living like a normal human being and stop thinking the world revolves around his feelings. Because that’s what you think, isn’t it? he asks me. But you’re useless, he says, I don’t expect a response from you.
