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.
