Everybody’s individual consciousness is a governing committee of shiftingly dominant and subordinate minds of unstable size and strength, 25-60% of which may be titanically stupid at any given moment.
“Everything good is torn straight down; everything shit is crowned: by which sick imperative behind whose clown?”
The minute after you are born you are not so much adding one human body to a pre-existing collection of billions of human bodies as you are adding one minute of experience to civilization’s pre-existing accumulation of c. 15,000 years: to what extent is this mathematical imbalance rectified by the time you’ve reached the age of 40? I.e.: are there perhaps fundamental attributes of the World about which you know nothing still …?
Here’s how the Control Mechanism behind Social Engineering (in the Age of Social Media) works:
Via Media/Social Media, TFIC* flatters (mostly young**) Liberal Women; saturates them for years with the message that they’re wise, powerful, noble and good by default. A decade or two of copious Endorphin hits ensue. Liberal Women like that. They trust their flatterers because everyone is like that; everyone flattered for long enough begins to either trust or distrust their flatterers (the former being a far more common response to flattery than the latter; flattery is the heart of almost all cons). The flatterer flatters Liberal Women and demonizes All Men (although the flatterers are largely men: they are above the fray and cannot be demonized by the demonization).
After the flatterer has addicted Liberal Women to this flattery and gotten in return total trust in the images and institutions through which the flattery has been delivered, the flatterer instrumentalizes this cultivated Trust and Addiction, announcing (cyclically):
ATTENTION!WARNING! DANGER! FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING EMERGENCY INSTRUCTIONS! FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER! YOU ARE SPECIAL AND WE WANT TO SAVE YOU!
The Liberal Women do so. Also, Liberal Men who like/need/adore the Liberal Women and who’ve had their self-confidence and independence decimated by a steady diet of women-flattering/men-demonizing content, wanting very much to be liked by the Liberal Women, obediently follow along and so the flatterers (TFIC) control two large (significant, middle-to-upper class) cohorts: Liberal Women and their subservient men.
The men who aren’t under the suave control of the flatterer… Right/Left Wing Males***… were the target all along.
Because only from the demographic of Right/Left Wing males is any form of violent “revolution” likely to spark. From the standpoint of any Control Apparatus, it’s very important to demonize, isolate and neutralize (except as military mercenaries) this demographic.
I’m not saying I’m pro-Cracker-Gun-Nut, I’m just pointing out that Cracker-Gun-Nuts and their Lefty/Libertarian equivalents are a concern for TFIC and that social engineering is working on marginalizing/ neutralizing both. You know, like how Mao’s “cultural revolution” instrumentalized billions of naturally-reactionary kids to deal with the threat of the “bourgeois intelligentsia”?
Again, to The Fuckers in Charge: well played.
*TFIC: The Fuckers in Charge
**Quite a few women who aren’t young but who aspire to be young will be caught and enchanted by this flattery, too; middle-age’s hard-earned wisdom will be eroded in many cases of this collateral media-damage.
*** Many naturally Left Wing men have their radical impulses tamed out of them during the process of a college education (which dangles the hologrammatic carrot of a good job while swinging the stick of student debt). The resultant Left-to- Liberal (politically-trans) Men are further kept in line, again, by the need to please Liberal Women, though they may well never recognize the fact that they are now something far from “Left”.
What little dissidence remains is represented by the aforementioned dis-empowered (often racist, sexist) Right Wing White Males… and a cadre of Left Wing Males greatly reduced in number, and marginalized, and fractious (not nearly so coherent in outlook as the Right Wing White Males). Plus Right Wing White Females (many of whom leak, aspirationally, toward the Center) + hyper-marginalized, atypical Left-leaning Females + Blacks/ Minorities who figure, in the greater calculus of the control-pyramid, as either boogiemen, charity-cases or reassuring tokens hired to make an evil policy seem benign under a brown-faced (as White Liberals are trained to fetishize “minorities”) smile.
We’ve been gulled with impressionistic non-logic into accepting the notion that misogyny (literally meaning: the hatred of, or aversion to, women) encompasses any critique of a specific woman (especially if the critique acknowledges the fact that she is, in fact, a woman). But, in order to be “woman-hating,” the critique of said woman would have to insinuate, at the very least, that the critiqued-woman’s flaws are tied directly to being a woman (as opposed to being a certain kind of woman). Is George Soros a problem because he’s a man… or because he’s a certain kind of man?
The descriptive and analytical powers of the language are destroyed by popular abuse (with political motives). The Media are blunting and blurring and mushing up the tools we actually need to be sharpest to counter the brainwashing. We need to stop worrying about giving “offense” to each other (the Serfs), so much, and use the power of these tools to deter the Ruling Order.
Logic-twisting and definition-creep are big parts of the psychological war being waged against us. Obama (hired as Left/Liberal cover for Bushite policies) couldn’t be criticized without his criticizers being labeled as “racist,” and HRC can’t be criticized without her prosecutors being labeled “misogynists” and Israel can’t be criticized without… etc. You get the picture. Do you see how the language of critique has been masterfully undermined by the quasi-therapeutic culture of logic-leaping sensitivities?
During OWS, when Lennon’s song “Woman is the N—er of the World” (a title/concept he got from Ono), was cancelled as “racist” by earnest sophomores, with IQs of 95, who never ‘cancelled’ a single thing George W. Bush ever said, and who couldn’t possibly get the irony of their error, I thought: yeah, just keep scoring goals against yourselves, kids, and the whole thing will be over quicker than we ever thought possible. Unwitting “Accelerationists” all.
In the end, being “nice” and being “liked” are not worth as much as we are being hypnotized into thinking they are. As I had a character in a novella say, once (relating an invented “old Czech saying”): you can’t make good soup with lukewarm water.
Fight the rot on whatever front we can or must, fight it frankly. Language is primal/ primary and framed heavily by context and obvious intent. Something “sounding” racist and/or sexist is not enough to deputize the plaintiff as an authority on the matter. Whatever the plaintiff feels.
The Internet (like TV before it) is easily subverted: I have always preferred to use it “wrong”.
I read and write long-form pieces with my PC, ignore viral “trends” (I was going to list a few here but suddenly realized that, having always ignored them… I can’t), never “surf” on my phone (in fact, the first thing I do when I get a new phone is disable its internet: I’ve never used Google Maps, nor checked my email in the park, nor downloaded apps nor uploaded pics and geolocational data straight to FB), never read “Yahoo News,” (et al), don’t get desktop notifications for anything, refused to Skype or “Zoom” during the Dehumanizing Popular Global House Arrest Vacation Drill… and so on. I use my PC/ Internet like the non-medical, Tricorder-like gear I always longed for as a geeky kid watching the original Star Trek… I do NOT use these tools to voluntarily lock myself into a psycho-electronic web of interchangeably subservient (and disposable) cogs… despite seductive invitations from the demon called Convenience; if there is a long way around something, or a difficult way in, I usually go for it. These tools are marvelous as long as THEY (not WE) are the tools and as long as WE (not THEY) are the users.
Problem being that people want to “belong”.
Many prefer to do things the “appropriate way”… many people love that gold-star, goody-two-shoes feeling. They like the discounts and coupons and pats on the head one gets by toe-ing the line in the Gulag, even if the Gulag (for now) is still strictly an opt-in affair: the gate (for how long?) is always open.
And, of course, there could be a mammoth essay all its own concerning the Vonnegutishly-named pharmaceuticals (and crypto-pharmaceuticals in the tap-water, tooth paste, salt, Twinkies, Big Macs, Coke, et al) which no doubt render us more receptive to the subtle frequencies on which the appropriate definition of “appropriate” is always broadcast.
Stubbornness is stupidity for smart people.
That time I had tender intercourse with the apparently wounded (rather deeply unhinged) woman who claimed to be sterile? I was 20 and extremely Smupid ™. Friends warned me about her. We’re all Smupid ™ from time to time.
Let’s all work on that.
Let’s pull out of this.
