THE FALL AND RISE OF THE WALL

The Dodologist is a lover, not a hater... Yeah, right!

Well you wouldn’t be all that perky yourself, if extinction was a fact of your daily life. And, after all, being a neo-reactionary is more than simply being gloomy. It’s being gloomy with an axe to grind.

Whatever. The Dodologist loves irony and hates – and he really, really means hates – those Irish wannabe messiahs – U2. You know, the great enemies of greed and capitalism that fled Ireland to skimp on taxes. Smug bastards.

Now, this is wonderfully absurd: Because U2 are such great lovers of freedom, they celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall by playing a free concert for 10 000 people in front of the Brandenburg Gate. And for safety reasons they obviously had to put up a huge fence around the bloody thing, blocking the sight for everybody else.

So, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, they … put up a new wall!

Oh, the irony.

  1. It's - at least for me - impossible to enjoy U2 without a couple of pinches of irony.
