Every right-winger's masturbation fantasy, Libertarian Girl, offers her thoughts on dada:
Dadaism and modern art are leftist movements based on the left's hatred of achievement and Western culture.
So dada held a mirror up to the world, and the world was repulsed by what they saw, and we who held the mirror were called disgusting; we who held the mirror were scorned for creating such ugliness!
Libertarian girl says we hate the achievements of Western culture, examples of which include:
- a war that ended all wars
- a surge in patriotism
- another war after the one that ended all wars
- various social advancements
and many, many others in which Libertarian Girl and her comrades take such pride.
What was the Enlightenment? The awakening of man's inner light of reason? A lie? A delusion? A fig leaf to cover the true base nature of humanity?
The twentieth century had its answer, as did dada.
