Long live DFW. Les Assassins des Fauteuils Rollents, as described in Infinite Jest. “Les Assassins des Fauteuils Rollents of Quebec are essentially cultists, locating both their political raison d’etre and their philisophical dasein within the North American sociohistorical interval of intensive special interest diffraction that preceded – nay, one might daresay stood in integral cause relation with respect to – the nearly simultaneous inaugurations of O.N.A.Nite governance, continental Independance, and the commercial subsidization of a lunar O.N.A.N. calendar. Like most Canadian cult extensions, however, the Wheelchair Assassins and their cultic derivations have proven substantially more fanatical, less benign, less reasonable, and substantially more malignant – in sum, more difficult for responsible authorities to anticipate, control, interdict, or reason with than even the most passionate U.S. kebals."
