Zeitgeist Spam: An extract from Levi R Bryant, “A World Is Ending”, from a feature called LOCKDOWN THEORY at Identities Journal

Everywhere there is an absence of toilet paper. Lacan taught us that the symptom is structured like a language, that it speaks, that it expresses a message or a series of signifiers. It is odd that toilet paper, of all things, should have been that which people hoarded. It is as if at some level they registered the earth that rumbles beneath the world, that renders the world possible, and chose a thing that marks the intersection of nature and culture to say what they did not have words to say. We spoke through a symptom. – Levi R Bryant
