> Materialism is as fat and stupid as all the other bloated gods.
Oh, I don't know. Doesn't it depend on who uses the word, how, for what
purpose? If one is to build a war machine, sometimes one needs things that
are fat, bloated, and perhaps even stupid. After all, you yourself are
advocating the use of catatonia, a form of willful stupefaction, to wage
a low-level war against the bloatedness of "materialism". Also, fat
and stupid things may want to be detourned, re-machined, reclaimed for
the opposite cause.
