The Simulacra final part 3

It finally happened, the sham political system collapses in the novel, and is obviously a metaphor for our western system of democrazy.

"They were frightened," Pembroke said." and frightened people lose the ability to think." about how the elite cowards lost their power structure :) I wonder how afraid they are in this reality.

"And don't worry about the psychological effect on the nation," pembroke said. "on the masses of Bes. I think they'll be able to withstand it, once the initial shock has worn off. There will be a reaction, of course; I expect it to demolish the system of government. Wouldn't you agree? By that I mean there will be no further der Altes (android replacement president) and no more so-called "Nicole," (first lady getting replaced by an actress when too old, people are too stupid to notice) and no more division into Ge and Be. Because we'll all be Ges, now." anyone else think of the bee gees here? :p
