What started as The New Demographic soon became a similarly evocatively titled piece, Sisyphus in Denial. (see detail) Sisyphus' endless task, similar to the prision that we make for ourselves, is the result of a protracted dellusion based on The Dream we (americans) embrace, or some acceptable popular mysticism. Instead of committing to what George Orwell called "significant mental rebellions," we, like Sisyphus, "carry on." And astondingly we do anything to carry on even if it is mind-numbingly fruitless. It seems Sisyphus' time has finally come, never to cease.
