“A Messiah Of Absurdity”

In 1932, the New York Times wrote a very accurate description of the madness America faces today.

The majority of [his] followers are men and women who have lost their spiritual anchorage 


To them civilization is no longer a protection but a menace. The skyscraping factory chimneys of which they had been so proud may one day sound the signal of the doom of a mad world.


Logic no longer appeals to them, and what they want is insanity. A Messiah must come, even if he is a Messiah of Absurdity.


Nothing can be worse than ‘reality! Let madness reign supreme!
