As well as this chemically altered perception – Burroughs would participate in all kinds of deviant sexual activity – which he admitted in his books also included the ‘illegal’. How did the hypocritical Bourgeoisie respond to these revelations? By turning a blind-eye, of course, Everything that titillated the Bourgeois imagination was viewed as prime examples of an ‘alternative’ lifestyle well-lived, whilst anything that was or could be ‘illegal’ was simply declared as ‘imagination’ and pure ‘art’ – and nothing else was said! Losing control of the material world is NOT Revolution and is the process of effectively ‘abandoning’ the field to the opposition. Participating in various forms of illegal and/or sexual deviancy (as a form of ‘lack of control’) is nothing more than William Burroughs letting his ‘Bourgeois’ side shine through!

William Burroughs – My Lunch is Naked – So What? (21.2.2023)
For instance, William Burroughs (in his masterpiece ‘Naked Lunch’) argues that male homosexuality is a product of Matriarchy – whereby women ‘influence’ men (through a sort of cultural ‘osmosis’) to take on a female sexual orientation. Women deny they are doing this, of course, whilst perpetuating the camouflaging myth that they are the ones being oppressed by male ‘Patriarchy’ – the very attribute combined womanhood is destroying through this ongoing effeminate re-programming of men. The Bourgeois State accepts this female-concocted surface argument as a means to avoid acknowledging the real causes of Gayness, or the further suggested idea by William Burroughs that much of what passes as ‘deviant’ sexual behaviour in a post-industrial society (as decreed by the Bourgeois State and enforced by reactionary elements of the working class) – exist because those participating in such activities find them enjoyable and fulfilling.
