Is backward the new forward?

And what does forward mean? No, don’t look at me like that, That exasperated expression on your face; I mean it seriously: Forward is now back.   Is this Nietzsche’s Eternal Recurrence?   1970 is as far as got before the braying donkey of the right Rediscovered those populist slogans  To feed the resentments toxically [...]
