Cult of celebrity

Spare us the hysterical eulogies of the cult of celebrity. Men are capable of both greatness and unspeakable evil. An idol who touched the lives of millions has departed. Only the bravest dare speak of his crimes. The same establishment which pretended not to know about the last superstar unmasked still looks the other way. Nobody really cares about the insignificant ones abused by those with money, fame and power in the era of Free Love. To care would be to challenge the orthodoxy of the enlightenment elite. No, speak not of demons, unless they be foreign and dark and alien. The cult of celebrity demands that only a single narrative be told.
