Political Objectives/Target Audiences: Wreck society through direct action by destroying its institutions and the men who serve it, and by relying on the people's forces to spread the doctrines of "P-Power" and "Ragnarok." To consolidate the New Nation, while never forgetting the need for constant purging, "as the nation shall resemble a self-cleaning oven."
Background: The Conservative Nation of Ulysses (conservative refers to a reserved manner of dressing and acting) is a violent and rejectionist group operating out of the Washington, D.C. area who seek to "wreak their vision on the world" through the medium of music. Despite fiery condemnation by both liberals and the right, and a virulent campaign waged by the media and by parents' groups, their aggressive campaign seems undaunted, and schoolyards now more than ever chime with the chant: "Ulysses, Ulysses, little flower, beloved by all the youth."
ULYSSES SPEAKS...On Menudo...
Menudo's potential for infinitude through member replacement has so impressed the Nation, that a rotation of new and fresh faced youths, each more beautiful than the last, shall be commenced with nation members upon the first signs of commercial compromise, so as to ensure permanent revolution and everlasting musical ineptitude.
The Critique: "By remaining obstinately underground, you marginalize your work and damn yourself to "ghetto music," simultaneously limiting your effectiveness."
The Response: "We prefer to remain in obscurity together with the masses rather than harangue them in the artificial illumination which is manipulated by those who hypnotize them. We shall not contribute to the adulteration of our own nation by bowing to pragmatic economic concerns. Let the bloated burst, choke on cynicism, be strangled by supplicating corporate arms. Let us watch their corpse be consumed by slugs and snails, while we blubber, The Nation of Ulysses Must Prevail."
