Apocalyptically sexy denial

I still think Grant Morrison may be clinically insane, and his work frequently drives me nuts, but when he has a point, sometimes it's worth repeating:
I don't know if we're so much inured to apocalypse as almost sexually obsessed by it…Think of all those videogames where the Earth's overrun by insect-aliens or there's been an atomic war and we're stumbling in the ruins with a gun we stole from a zombie. We should be grateful that we live in a culture so insulated from true horror it can afford to play with fear as entertainment.
