The Xenophobe

Let us plunge into the last pages of the Encyclopedia Cartooniensa and go xenowild to distract from the outcome of the French presidential election.

Per Marquard Otzen is leading us, proving how word and action are one. There is no need to establish a cause and effect. The tongue of the xenophobe is the manned machinegun. What is more, the xenophobe is a propagandist, staging an outside, while internalizing as many as possible to make the opposition plausible. To a degree that the parliament has become one with the xenophobe. In case the xenophobe is successful in having a war come about, the machinegun shall obtain an official capacity to turn the whole nation into one of xenophobes.

It is not a good place to be in to be a xenophobe. The noise is painful within. Layers of internal bodies crouching, protecting themselves.

The xenophobe is contrasted by the xenophile of cartooning, curious and inquisitive and first and last ready to engage in some more xenogamy.

In the latter we find the very definition of the drawing process in which the state of xenon is dissolved. That heavy, colorless, chemically inactive, monatomic gaseous element. It is there and yet not. It is the paper before the pen is put to it.
