Real time strategy,
when the system tests itself
I would focus on global warming,
to improve the system in a positive way,
before I cut out drone missions,
to stop defense initiatives,
put less faith in the other,
more weight on the home base
but wouldn’t want anyone to know
that this is what I had chosen
though this is what I would do
in a situation like
a world where people can’t control themselves
and other people hate you
for your freedom
which is why you can’t let your virtual reality
a virtual morality would ensue
you need the plaintive cries and
pleading eyes of the world
of those who need to see a better world
come through the leader,
which is you
you put the least faith in failsafes
and the most in the worst case
and this is why
the system doesn’t need you
‘The Occult Roots of Nazism’
People who will tell you they believe in God
are trying to forget they know God is
People who practice miracles
are seeing the wrong things
People who don’t know anything
are either right or wrong
If you were to talk of it
It’s either night or song
People who are seeking light
are probably just old
And if you wish enlightenment
you’re used and can be sold
People who want to try new things
are charting paths to dreams
and People who go outside at all
are darker than they seem
Terrence McKenna, Lecture
“They are more fired up than we are” says the move-on email, telling its recipients that “them”, among “our enemies”, those on the “right” just WANT IT MORE, and are more avid voters. And so, won’t you please pledge $20.
But this is typical, is their gist. Republicans, the Right Wing, Conservatives, are typically more active, they are telling you, and you need to GET IT IN GEAR.
But what is behind this? Is it more PASSION? Or is it simply, a firmness of footing?
Or, rather, a place of surer LEVERAGE… in the PHYSICAL meaning of the word. More pivot, more torque, more to push with, and against.
Because, mostly, when you have the power of the afterlife in your ‘corner’, you have the ability to lean back on this, and lift with the legs. If we’re doing God’s will… or rather, working without need for conscious thought, no higher brain function, or, even ratherer still, no need to contemplate our NON-actions, then we in our power have POSITION. And can push as hard as we want, because NOTHING WON’T GIVE.
On the other hand, what does dear old liberal have in his pockets? Our democrat friend, what do our hands linked together hold that red rovers can’t break apart? What is the point at which we make a line that won’t be crossed?
Of course, immortality. Or coursely, being against the real enemy. Our dear old nemesis, God, damn him. Our immortal enemy, the enslaver of Man. The one who put us here, he’s the asshole. You can hate the LORD of ALL and this will put us in our true place, as ubermensch, over-man… the man who takes his place AMONG the GODS. And damn the Ruler of all if he can’t take a joke. The measure of all things wants a recount. Get a job, Messiah.
“Periods of European Nihilism”
The period of unclarity, of all kinds of tentative men who would conserve the old without letting go of the new.
The period of clarity: one understands that the old and the new are basically opposite, the old values born of declining and the new ones of ascending life—that all the old ideals are hostile to life (born of decadence and agents of decadence, even if in the magnificent Sunday clothes of morality). We understand the old and are far from strong enough for something new.
The period of the three great affects: contempt, pity, destruction.
The period of catastrophe: the advent of a doctrine that sifts men—driving the weak to decisions, and the strong as well—
So, you have a culture of repression, a well-nigh police state where the political-philosophical ideal is idealism, so the belief system reflected is that everything should be perfect but nothing is. So what happens? Damage control. You have everyone reacting to the fact that no one gets what they want. Politicians can only lie. People will die. The system, so called, is merely running around with fire extinguishers calling attention to anything that makes fires burn beautifully. Imagine if you will, believing that everyone around you is a cesium atom conspiring to decay a gas pellet which when exposed will poison you and expose the fact that it doesn’t matter if the box opens. This cat ain’t coming back.
“The truth is finding you are free, but free within a prison.”
