Or Kill Me / if you're part of the problem you're part of the solution
« on: December 16, 2004, 10:30:31 am »
Reminded me of a Bruce Lee saying (and I am someone who does not particulary like Bruce Lee so feel honoured that I decided to quote him here, probably for the last time).

"Let yourself go with the disease, be with it, keep company with it-that is the way to be rid of it"- The Tao of Jeet Kune Do

Now I'm not sure as to what its real meaning is but I had always interpreted it in the sense of the second paragraph.  If there is a flaw built into the system itself, exploit it, drive it to its absolute limit. If the system is built on that flaw it tends to crash under the pressure of it all.

Or Kill Me / Philosophical Vomit (Nietchze!)

I miss my Nietzsche library I have at home.  It had most of the books and a few discussions on them.  He is one of the few philosophers I truly liked. Him and David Hume.

Thats Cthulhu's job :D Nice rant, kinda reminds me in part of Jerry Mander's book, 4 Arguments For the Elimination of Television.  The death of the mind, the boredom of life itself, thats so big you cant even see it from the inside so it doesnt even seem that boring.  You know, I havent actually watched a TV in over 4 months.  Or watched that many films.  If I wasnt so busy with the mountain of work Im often doing on my computer, I might actually have time to do something intereseting.  Damn work :evil:

Well, when i spoke about learning I also just meant generally.  People do tend to over intellectualise stuff alot, something I try to avoid if possible.

Funny you should mention Madonna, she lives very close to my home, in fact my mum knows the sister of someone who used to work there for her.  Ah the stories I could tell and be bankruted for...

Also, about the "cheeseburgers", isnt that in part who the Discordian Jihad should be against?  I admit I am fairly new to the whole thing though I have a slight head start due to (in theory) studying Philosophy and so am going by websites that are mostly never updated and odd tracts I find in random places (like the one that bought me here actually).

But I am willing to learn, an important trait I picked up from martial arts training.  Never think you know it all.  Never tire of learning.  Once you think you have learnt it all, or think you are "enlightened" then it will elude you.  You will have lost the "true way" (my reading of Musashi is showing here, isnt it?).  The way is never attained, one can only live through it, it is not an object to be seized and coveted.

I thought the point of using Kerry was that Bush would get in, make things worse then Hilary Clinton comes round next time and everyone hates Bush so much that they vote for her.  At least thats what The Times and The Guardian has insinuated more than once.

Makes sense. Kinda the opposite of the "all the rugged individualists came here and that's why we're superior to Europe" theory. Wonder if it's a good thing or not that not all the assholes came here.


The problem isn't individuals its people who consitently bleat on about their individuality.  I've had a few discussions with friends about this lately, and my thoughts are people who claim to be individual and make a show of it are normally more insecure and are actually more conformist within a new subculture.

Unfortunately no country has a particulary nice History, regardless of who they are.  The only reason we see the "Western Powers" as better is due to the old adage that "history is written by the victors".  I'm sure if you asked the Russians in the early 80s if they thought they were the good guys they would have said yes.  A country that had tried to build a better state for the workers, that had been invaded three times in 20 yeaars by powers seeking their destruction and had successfully fought back the ide of Fascism and won WWII.  Its very mich a matter of perspective and its hard enough to view from the inside in any manner, let alone objectively.

I was speaking with a lecturer in International Relations today, just about current happenings etc and the funny thing was, he was saying similar stuff.  He is a pro-American right-wing Australian, hates apeasers, fully supported the Iraqi War, like the free market etc

And he thing was even he was saying that the current administration were a bunch of criminals and worse.  In theory you would expect him to support them, given his sympathies.  But it seems these guys have even given up the pretence of legitimacy.  I will be the first to admit than any superpower does take drastic, sometimes grossly disproportianate action.  But thats not it with the new guys, they seem to court trouble, they seem intent on ripping up that rather nice Constitution and they seem intent on lining their own pocket at the expense of collapsing the economy, which wont only affect their country, but practically everywhere.

They've upset the balance of power, they dont seem to understand that alliances will form against you if you get too strong, thats the way the international system works. Instead they'd rather a show of power to destroy any counterbalance, say in Europe or Southeast Asia that would develop.  Thats why they decide to use multimillion pound bombs ona third world country, to show "this is what we do to punish our foes."  The nice smart laser missile sytems were a warning to the leaders of any country, not as such out of humanitarian concern.  It was a message to say, "we can even target individuals if we want."  

Ah fuck I've started a rant, this probably doesnt even make sense.  Come the morining I'll see if it still makes sense and delete it otherwise.

I thought everything was Discordian anyway?  After all, by enforcing the Anerisic principle among competing forces, it just ends up increasing the overall chao in the Universe....
