nation

“I believe there is simply ourselves, and where we are has a particularity which we’d better use because that’s about all we’ve got…there is no other culture. There is simply the literal essence and exactitude of your own. I mean, the streets you live on, or the clothes you wear, or the colour of you hair….Truth lies solely in what you do with it….

Put an end to nation, put an end to culture, put an end to divisions of all sorts.”

Charles Olson, July 20th, 1965, Berkeley (Causal Mythology, p.36)
