What's REALLY Funny, part I of V
« on: November 03, 2016, 08:03:58 pm »
Okay, so let’s just talk about Jill Stein, and we’ll leave out the boring crazy bits.  Dr Stein’s primary plank is “stopping the wars”….Which is sort of one of those “outsider” ideas that ignores the fact that our republic is in its terminal phase, and we will never be at peace again under our current form of government.  If by some miracle she won, and stepped foot in the beast, I strongly doubt she’d have the moral courage to actually make the attempt to stop the wars.

And if she DID, she’d be given a ride in a convertible in Dallas.  Or just have a good, old-fashioned heart attack.  No more little Dr Stein being a nuisance.  Not to get HER out of the way.  No.  An inconvenient president can be ignored (see: Jimmy Carter).  The reason she’d be suborned or killed would be as a message.

A similar message to the one send by the Chelsea police (London Chelsea, that is) when, just days after riots over police brutality, the pepper-sprayed a young man until he died, for the heinous crime of being the only person at the address from which he himself had called in a domestic dispute.

The message is “Shut up or we’ll kill you.  If we can be bothered.”  It’s all about the message, after all, and Stein would make the perfect telegram to the few remaining peaceniks in the country. ..”Your opinion does not matter, and nothing can stop The Machine.”

Remember Occupy?  Neither do I.  Occupy was doomed from the moment it began, for more reasons than I can fit into this post, but the big one was their hilarious insistence on “general assemblies” that accomplished nothing but the generation of factionalism and butthurt that saw Occupy dwindle from out outraged horde to a few homeless people using the idea as a means by which to keep cops from moving them along.

Why?  Because they slipped right back into the training and indoctrination they have received since childhood.  Think about it: You vote every two years, and it doesn’t seem to make much difference.  So why would it make any difference if you voted in an Occupy general assembly?  The majority of people are going to vote for the ideas of the most charismatic speaker, or for the ideas they arrived with, no matter what other ideas they are given to consider.  This does not lead to effective decision-making, and the idea of having no leaders doesn't work with more than 7 domesticated primates at a time.

In short, the same failure of the US system is what killed or will kill any opposition to the system, literally or figuratively.  It’s been like that since day one, but we put up with it because it keeps the wheels on.

These “messages” are what a certain type of people call “psyops”, but then that person will generally start hollering about bogus moon landings or the Earth being flat.  They are that annoying species that refer to themselves as “woke”, who would be, in any civilized society, humanely euthanized. 

But they aren’t completely wrong.  Psyops are practiced by governments, multinationals, asymmetric warfighters, and of course the thing that we used to call Madison Avenue.    The most cost-effective ones are the asymmetrical warfare guys, who can fuck with the minds of a billion people just by taping a beheading on their smartphone.  The most overall effective ones, though, are the non-government actors that have a vested interest in making sure you STAY afraid of the terrorists who put their $2 operation up on youtube for free.  What crazy hijinks will you do to get on plane?  More to the point, what sort of background checks are you willing to go through for the purpose of buying yourselves out of those antics?

And now, thanks to Clive Bundy and people like him, anyone who points any of this out is obviously crazy, and everyone else slides over to the other side of the bus…Even if you point out that there isn’t A Conspiracy, but instead loads of little conspiracies that each occupy a different niche.

No, Jill Stein isn’t going to fix this.  Nothing is.  The fight is over, the future won, and it isn’t done with you yet.

(more to follow tonight or tomorrow)

The next one is on Trump and the whole idea of "just do it more" when discussing fighting an asymmetrical war.

I've basically matched candidates to their principle form of bad signal.

THAT is a pretty interesting premise. I'm looking forward to more.
