Re: Precisely Aris. You get the humour... Re: Drug Gaze

Dear Lionel,

Do you believe that all these UFO sightings are actually aliens planning
to colonise the planet by themselves or is the US government also
involved in a collaboration with them in order to breed alien/human
hybrids that will be immune to the impending viral apocalypse?

This is my last response to this. Any other comments/response to my
previous post by members of the list who are more familiar with
Foucault's work than I am would be highly appreciated.
