Like “Fidelio” from Eyes Wide Shut or “Open Sesame” from the Arabian Knights: dissident, majoritarian and populist authors, activists, media personalities and artists have all be at virtual Robert Stark journalistic parties for over a decade now.

The inner book from this journalist has arrived drawing on the seemingly infinity lava flow that seems to have been spawned by the high priesthood of Kek ever since the election of Donald Trump.
