Yeah, there is that.  He's such a gomer.

Don't buy the Steve Jackson Games version because he's a horrible, horrible person.

It sounds like there's a story behind this. What is it?

He's a callous, soulless opportunist.  I dunno, I think he just liked the imagery and trappings of Discordia to sell games and stuff, but could give a lick about the actual philosophy.

Except, as the article notes:

Legal experts said forcing defendants to work for free might violate their constitutional rights. The 13th Amendment bans slavery and involuntary servitude in the United States, except as punishment for convicts. Thatís why prison labor programs are legal. But many defendants sent to programs such as CAAIR have not yet been convicted of crimes, and some later have their cases dismissed.

Anyway, I mostly bring it up because RWHN always said he preferred addiction treatment to prison, when it sounds like the two aren't very different at all.

Well it certainly doesn't sound like Club Med.

Hi all,

I am here to find my way out of (into?) an existential crisis. I believe this is the only religion that has nothing to teach me, so naturally I am here to learn. I bought a copy of the Principia Discordia on Amazon because I was enjoying the parts I read online.

I'm kind of having a hard time with life right now, and interacting with Discordianism is making me feel a little better. Just wanted to say hi before I contribute anything.

Discordianism has an uncanny knack for showing up at our doorstep in these times. 

(According to some other weirdos, sometimes lunch will just up and wander onto your stoop too.)

It means you are ready....for...well...we're all still trying to figure that part out.

I think I only rage-quit once.  But I still have time.

I've seen the illuminati :O

Were they in fancy dress?

I'm going to give several vision-impaired individuals several poison and blade-tipped saxophones and violins, then I will stand up against a wall and tell them to have at er.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Democrats Decide to Just Go Ahead and Implode
« on: August 29, 2017, 01:31:33 am »
Just over a year ago, progressives and Democratic voters had a chance to really change things - to reform not just the Democratic party, but the country as well. Establishment Politics was the theme of Election 2016, and the Established Left shot themselves in the foot trying to stamp out the revolution.

They blew an election that they should have had in the bag.

Meanwhile, American progressives, in their march towards acceptance and equality, found themselves unsatisfied with all of the accomplishments they had made over the last eight years and actually began to alienate those to the right by entitling themselves to a brand of political correctness so far ahead of its time that even the moderates found themselves unable to defend it. Identity politics mixed with a right-wing paranoia of losing cultural control and created the Alt-Right, a band of misfits and misanthropes who not only delighted in triggering the left into abandoning their civility, but were masters of navigating the means to do so.

Winning that election empowered them to come out in full force and declare their pride in revisionist monuments to dead men who fought on the wrong side of history; a history that the cities they reside in have finally begun to evolve beyond. But it wasn't enough to show up in a sea of blinding whiteness. They came out in full cosplay as the one thing the left hates most.

And the progressives, so easily distracted, didn't take this opportunity to reexamine their ideology or the political party that had cannibalized itself in vain. They didn't try to figure out where they went wrong or why they lost. Instead, the radicals shouted "Hey, everyone! Look at the Nazis!"

And they looked.

The parties are built on not being the other guy, not about what they are for, but it's been this way for awhile, it's just exploded to this level of loud, screeching gridlock.  And so we're now in the period where both parties are going to, not elect the person with the best platform and ideals, but the one who's best at being a carnival barker.

The solution? There is no solution. 

Buckle up and enjoy going nowhere.

I believe that evolution saw to it that the chemicals in our head bounced around in certain patterns (amongst all of the other patterns) to occupy us in the questioning and exploration of our existence.  Why?  Because we live to be 80, 90, 100 fucking years old.  That's a lot of fucking time to fill.  Well, that is, those of us with enough sustenance and such to have the luxury of questioning it all.  And I think that's evolution's trick to keep us privileged folk busy so we don't straight out kill everyone and steal their sandboxes. 

I mean, really, either religious-type stuff is real or it isn't.  If it is, well we're all screwed, if it isn't, there is still a reason for why we believe in magical space ghosts.  It's either science or science fiction.  Cosmos or Flash Gordon. 

And the reality is, Cosmos makes more sense, but who the fuck doesn't want to be Flash every once in awhile?

I understand that you're all hungry for another comic, but I can't just release them minute after minute. Be patient.

You're no Max Cannon.

A sailor comes back from a long voyage to discover that his house has been assumed by the government.  They haven't razed it, or done anything else physically to the house.  They simply have allowed a family of talking badgers to take up residence.  It is discovered to be a social engineering initiative to see if they can badger people out of their homes.  Furry eminent domain.
