Or Kill Me / Re: Your version of Disordia is as perfectly valid as mine.

Nobody owns the word, so there's no way to say what is or is not Discordianism. In that I agree with everyone else ITT.
However, some versions of Discordianism, while perfectly legitimate in their claim to the name, are dumb.

In case you're serious, here is a brief description of what I believe to be worthwhile. Muumuus not included.

Culture-jamming is fun, and mindfucking others ultimately encourages you to mindfuck yourself. Anyone can break shit down, though; one then has an opportunity to build something new.

I believe in structuring experience rather than accepting at face value what is foisted on you by the world, because the world is fucked up chaos.
There is an interesting take on that described in this book, which is written as an exposition of William Blake. For Blake, there is no higher faculty than imagination, and art is the greatest of human endeavors. I am inclined to agree.

Everyone's Discordia is equally invalid.

Just like everyone's art is equally not art.

"Rolling" a con man who accidentally acquired noncorporeality power. Versatile but weak CHA & DEX based character.

Yes, this is thoroughly inconsistent with what is practiced, but not with what is claimed. I remember a post by Cain somewhere awhile back to the effect that the notion of truth in conservative news is pomo whereas that of liberal news is positivist.

I wonder if Olbermann didn't deliberately enact this in order to spark some outrage and add fuel to the fire on the Democratic side of things. If he was aware of and counting on the enforcement of the policy, his maneuver was well played.

I think the basic idea is older than (the concept of) fractals. Not just the homology between the microcosm and the macrocosm, but the notion of countless intermediate layers...

I disagree with this, especially the second line. Things can be judged on their own terms even without a universal standard. Furthermore, we cannot simply throw away our values in the name of warm fuzzy shit. At least, I can't.

This doesn't mean we should silence dissent, or shit on it, but that we should carefully clarify our positions and encourage others to do the same.


I'm starting a movement to sneer at amateur Discordians. We'll have a gallery opening on the 23rd.

I'm also starting a Neo-Surrealist Neo-Discordian movement to sneer at the public and the "professional Discordians" at the same time. We'll have a gallery opening on
SHUT THE FUCK UP AND SIT THE FUCK DOWN. HAVE YOU READ THE ELECTION RESULTS?!?! HOLY SHIT, THE HORROMIRTH WILL CONSUME THE NATION IN EPILEPTIC FITS OF ANTI-MASTURBATION AND PROTEST RALLY BURNINGS OF EFFIGIES OF POPULAR COMEDIANS/ILLUMINATI.

I believe that clarifies things nicely. Have fun.

100%.

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God is pretty vivid. As for the god portrayed therein, kind of a dick.

You can never undo learned patterns, you can only teach new patterns and hope they will be stronger than the old ones.
