Politics is so frustrating and depressing and overwhelming nowadays, and there doesn’t seem to be any escape. Everything is politicized. Everything is weaponized. Everything feels so important and urgent. And that’s exactly what the people who are fucking with us want.
I have spent most of this year just trying to keep myself sane amidst all this madness. This morning, I realized… it’s time to stop fighting a million battles, and it is time to start fighting the war. The assholes of the world call this a culture war, and it really is…
And this war isn’t between democrats and republicans… it isn’t between left or right. It is a war against freedom, waged by every evil ideology that thrives on inequality. And if you don’t want to end up a slave at the end of this… you need to fight the good fight, too.
The most frustrating thing about all this, for me, is knowing that many who fight for illiberal ideas don’t even realize that they are. They don’t realize that they are setting themselves up for slavery. The rhetoric of criminality used in Illiberal PsyOps is astounding.
And I think that is key… their “rhetoric of criminality”… all that garbage language that turns the whole world upside down and backwards… war is peace… slavery is freedom… good is evil. So fed up with this shit.
Know why it’s called, “rhetoric of criminality”? Cuz it re-programs the mind to accept… and even worse, DO… really fucked up shit… while believing that they’re actually doing good.
In spite of everything going on, I really do have a lot of faith in the goodness of people. I think most people actually do want to be good and do good things… and because of this, I don’t think that we are beyond hope.
I’ve been reading a lot of books that I never would’ve read before, since Trump got elected. Really evil shit that required bottles of wine, and sometimes Tequila, to get through. And I’ve learned a lot about what these evil assholes are thinking, why they do what they do…
More importantly… I think I’ve figured out how they’ve convinced good people, throughout history, to buy into their evilness. Yes, throughout history… they’ve been using the same playbook, through every cycle of evil, each time improving their methods.
This time around, they claim they’re fighting Cultural Marxism. The Nazis called it Cultural Bolshevism. Nietzsche called it Slave Morality. Relative to modern times, the most ancient term for what they’re fighting is actually more fitting: Aristotle (who was pro-slavery) called it Democracy.
These terms… Cultural Marxism, Cultural Bolshevism, and Slave Morality… it’s all just Democracy, relabeled, to turn “freedom” into a dirty word…
The authors of these terms have a common message: “All this talk about freedom and equality is a conspiracy the slaves are hatching to eliminate their masters.”
Actually, two messages… their other message… the one given to those who strive against oppression… that message is the truly sinister one: “The masters of the world are conspiring to make sure you can never be a master yourself.”
That’s the bait. And here’s the switch: Nobody wins in a society built on master/slave duality. Whether oppressed, or oppressor… oppression weighs heavily on everyone… either on one’s back, or on one’s soul.
And here’s the thing that I’m thinking… if we want to win this war, we have to fine tune our game, and fight “for” the things they are fighting “against”. And I don’t mean “Cultural Marxism” … cuz that’s just some bullshit conspiracy theory they came up with…
Our fight… is for freedom from oppression. It’s a simple idea, really. It’s the weaponry that makes it complicated. But I have ideas about that… and I think I’ll have to start an actual blog for it all.
Thank you so much for reading my rant today.
