It should probably be taken seriously as a political
 statement, but not as a program for political action -- for it does in its
own manner address some aspects of the economy of power as it manifested
itself in Germany in the 1920's and 30's -- it also represents an
ideological stance both in its absurdist nihilism as well as what might be
taken as its impotence --  its political content therefore resides in what
it reflects rather than the analysis or lacxk of it might be premised on --
in the same way a spontaneous riot or a racist statement  must be taken as
a serious political statement.
