Mocking Human Life [4]

(This is part 4 of a multi-part post. See part 1 here,   part 2 here,   part 3 ) Don Harder: I hadn’t bothered to watch Freeman’s vid until now. It’s so much worse than I imagined. I feel like posting it and saying “If you believe this, go fuck yourself” but how effective would that be?…

Mocking Human Life [3]

(This is part 3 of a multi-part post. See part 1 here, part 2 here) Here’s what it sounds like to talk without mocking human life. It’s shocking to hear it. We never hear it anymore, so we don’t know what it sounds like to hear someone NOT mocking human life. Do yourself a favor….

Mocking Human Life [2]

(This is part 2 of a multi-part post. See part 1 here) The harm that follows from excess devotion (which I wrote about here: Devotion ) is greatest where devotion is reflexive, unnoticed, unquestioned. Such devotion is common among people who otherwise are well on guard against the problem. Such is the nature of the problem of…

Mocking Human Life [1]

(This is part 1 of a post in multiple parts.) “Now you’re mocking me.” We all know the cruelty. Person to person, we know the pain of mockery. I’m not absolutist about it though. Mocking is a tactic, and can be used to reveal, as a shovel digs through covering. And it can be defensive,…

Devotion

Honestly I have a strong aversion to hospital culture, the idea — not saying you do this; you don’t — the idea that every little thing has to be obsessed over and that salvation is found in the medical industry. Hospitals are not to be worshipped, are not for finding salvation, though some people think…

top shelf psy-op

The author of this article, Chris Hedges is a Public Menace, Matt Sedillo, whether he knows it or not, writes what sounds like the recent breed of top shelf psy-op. The article builds up an exaggerated enemy while hiding real oppressors. It goes all-in on the  “attribute our crimes to others” technique of discourse derailment….

making a mockery

“He clarified that he opposed the Iraq war.” …of course he did. I do not know him. But that’s what most Democratic Party voters say and believe. They believe that war is aggression when Republicans preside, but perfectly justified and not even noticeable when Democrats preside. This makes absolute mockery of the idea of democracy….

“Go full retard? Walk away empty-handed”

The reason we are here, not in Mayberry anymore, as John Whitehead describes in a great article, Battlefield America: We’re Not In Mayberry Anymore , is more than 20 years worth of having two US political parties, both of which are parties of war. The Democratic Party, formerly, was at least partially pro-peace, from 1968 to 1998, and…

Chatting on Facebook about “Russiagate”

Here’s what Caity Johnstone says  (again) today: Caity Johnstone Excerpt from the article: “This is unacceptable. You don’t get to lie to the American people for nine months, terrify them with fact-free ghost stories that their nation has been taken over by a hostile foreign body, use their terror to manufacture support for a new…

A Strategy More Evil than Imperialism

As an American, I’ve been watching American wars my whole life, through our media. As a young man, I participated personally as well, from the safety of a ship at sea. It’s always a cartoon, for most of us. Certainly not for those who see it, and do it, up close. These days, 22 American…

I posted this article which criticizes a recent NATO-produced anti-Russia propaganda film glorifying WWII Nazis: nato-celebrates-nazi-collaborators-who-murdered-jews-holocaust:  “In Flashy New Film, NATO Celebrates Nazi Collaborators Who Murdered Jews in the Holocaust. Top historians slam NATO for lionizing former Baltic Waffen SS fighters as anti-communist heroes.” A Facebook friend commented: We should not be surprised. The same people support Islamic…
