Nicholas Preston is creating passable essays and a blog

I cherish each and every one of you on this site and it's for this reason that I'm telling you this. Do not go outside. If you must go outside, you must put a bag over your head. Do not even ride the tube, bus or subway because [redacted] is full of STDs and you might catch one. If you read anything; an advert, a book, an article, a tweet, you will need to be brought around again with smelling salts—sal ammoniac, for example—after slipping into delirium.

Technology won't help us. It can't in the hands of the capitalists who monopolise it now. Nor will our government officials. They burned down our tower blocks and left us languishing in the rubble. Those who consider themselves intellectuals especially aren't on our side, there wouldn't be a place for them in any world we may want to build. Even the so-called benevolent elites don't want to see us prosper. What are we to do against these odds?

The working week has snatched away all of our free time, but with the little I have before the sixth mass extinction dispatches us all — I am writing essays about politics, anthropology, art (mainly film analysis), animals and other things that I'm probably unqualified to talk about at This Dilapidated World because it's the only thing that can save us. And cheap wine ain't cheap. If you vaguely like any of my pieces, please consider becoming a patron for my sweet, sweet gratitude and other perks.
Tiers
I'm ten a penny

You get access to the blog on here and also: your name won’t be included in the eldritch incantations and curses that I yell into the waves.
Goals

When I reach 50 patrons or about $100 a month, I'll be able to write essays & the blog on here more frequently and stop relapsing into torpor.
