The American dream?
Or in this image on a brick wall in the ID do we see the future death of all that is not this plain American smile, health, and wealth. From the wild variety of the many we end history with this one standard. And is it bad news? Is the standardization of human culture a bad thing? Will the finishing of difference make us more peaceful?
One beauty (one type of belly) will soon rule the world:
But deep in history there was an African king who was famous for forcing his wives to drink beer so that their bellies and bodies would grow to a fatness that finally aroused him. Gone is that king and his type of “jungle boogie.” Women fattened by beer are no longer the model for humans in what Vico would have recognized and named “the age of man.”
