I'm not upset anymore
« on: February 27, 2007, 02:34:12 am »
I've watched a lot of TV. It used to make me mad. The fact that millions of potential humans are destroying themselves by tuning into the same bullshit and having it reverberate through all of society used to get me filled with a near Biblical rage at the world and how stupid it is.

The fact that only a very few people do think made me even more mad. Little enclaves like this are the only way to find any measure of intelligence in the world, and that's a depressing thought.

Life kept getting madder, because I realized I can't live up to my own standards, ever. Every method I attempt only puts me somewhere that's not quite enlightenment. I never had the balls to stand up and say "no, and you and the society you're building is fucking insane". Neither has changed.

The world is an ignorant place full of the fat complacent pack animals, psychotic alpha males (and females, I suppose) destroying themselves and bringing the world down with it, and faux revolutionaries who only know how to think like what their favorite T shirt companies think.

But that doesn't bother me.


Love is the answer.

Just like Burroughs said.

I really wish it was more special.

I am completely incapable of doing anything great. I will never change the world. I can get together with a mass of people, and we can make things look different for a little while, but it'll all go back to nothing eventually. All I have left to do is love. I love Bill O Reilly. I love those hateful, selfish girls on Super Sweet Sixteen. I love every person who has ever hurt me or the world. They dissappoint me, but they don't worry me. Pamphleteering goes nowhere, nor does protest or mindfucks. Love is all I can do. Hope as I might that that sort of unconditional love can teach and help others, I'm not stressing out over whether it will. Whatever the outcome, I am one with the world.

(Feel free to tear this apart in all its hippy ineffectualness.)

its just one way.

I think Roger would say that it lacks hate though.
One by one, we break the sheep from their Iron Bar Prisons and expand their imaginations, make them think for themselves. In turn, they break more from their prisons. Eventually, critical mass is reached. Our key word: Resolve. Evangelize with compassion and determination. And realize that there will be few in the beginning. We are hand picking our successors. They are the future of Discordianism. Let us guide our future with intelligence.

Indeed, while it does lack hate, its still pretty good.

My grandpa used to say that love is the only thing that matters. He was a pretty cool guy to have a conversation with. Oh, and he beat the living hell out of his kids.

CK,
Mostly just depressed, though tries to be optimistic.
Well, I just said it so FUCKING LISTEN OR ILL KEEP SHOUTING UNTIL YOUR BRAINS BECOME FLUID AND POUR OUT YOUR EARS.

You're farther along than I am on that path.  I'm more on the trip of "Love is the only thing I can reliably do without fucking things up too badly."

That sounds about right from my perspective, except for me its "Love is the only thing I can reliably do and I still fuck things up rather badly"

I hadn't thought about it sticking to her face in the rain.  It was kind of dark and I didn't look that closely.

I did notice that it stuck to her face in the shower, though....
