Dante's 10th Circle

As we're hurtling towards the last curtain call, the final epic encore in the Grand Guignol entertainment known as humanity, I've been contemplating Hell.

More specifically, Dante's unmentioned 10th circle.

I know Dante never mentioned it, but I think that's only because he didn't have the cultural equipment to interpret it.

The 10th Circle of Hell is designed just like a Wal-Mart check out section.

In Hell's version there are 500 check out lanes but only 1 is actually running. In this one line the wait is decades long & when you finally make your way to the cash register & pay, you glance into your cart only to find that your cheap vittles & your sweatshop made knick knacks & clothing & furniture has all rotted & turned to dust. This forces you to return to the store in order to fill up your cart so you can reenter the decades long line & begin the process over again.

In the background there is a never ending soundtrack of insipid Pop music playing all the time.
Strictly for your aural enjoyment.

Next Week I will examine Dante's 11th Circle of Hell. This involves a never ending Christmas shopping season.

Here, smiling happy Westerners super glue a baby & a mushroom gobbling shaman wild man onto their "bring the Sun back from the darkness"  solstice celebration, & then celebrate this by buying oodles & oodles of "soon to pad landfills" junk made by made by slave & sweatshop labor.

Be there or be square.
