Covid-20: Electric Mink Boogaloo

To add to what QG is saying: think of it as a two or three PowerPoint presentation slides.... youre probably thinking of making two paragraphs of solid text, but between them and after them a small list of bullet points. Maybe one good quotation at the start and one at the end.

I like this one! Can it be Holy Nonsensed up?

I didnt share the bibliography to avoid breaking the inmersion, but it in fact isnt my text.

This is actually Sigmund Freud, 1909, p. 50-51, "Five lectures on psychoanalysis".... so do what you can and want with it.

You've been reading our business bestsellers again, haven't you?

Something like that, this text could easily had been named "Freud's guide to being an effective slave-driver"... wherein one is supposed to allow the peasants some actual fun and pleasure, so they dont actually burn out and collapse... sublimation and repression of our libido after all, has a limit.

Or Kill Me / Schilda's horse

It has been made known to us, that the inhabitants of Schilda were in possession of a horse whose vigour for work made them very satisfied, and that they only had only one thing to reproach it: it consumed too much oat, expensive oat

They decided to take away this bad habit of his benevolently, reducing day by day its ration by several stalks until it was habituated to complete abstinence.

For a time, everything went greatly. The horse was accustomed to not eating, except a single daily stalk, and at last the next day it would work without the need of any.

That morning they found the treacherous animal dead; the inhabitants of Schilda could not explain the reason behind its death.

This is a world of force. We're edging away from that but it has always been about force. It will be about force for as long as we solve problems with ballistics. To argue otherwise is to be a victim, and who wants that? This world is hard, lonely, fucked up, and you take whatever you can get from it, because it only gets worse from here. One day, you're going to get older, and waste away and die. Nobody is going to remember Alexis the graceful soul but they will never forget Alexis the horrific savage.

Needs MOAR angst.

Do i hear Nietzsche hanging out at Hot Topic? Where he preaches the death of punk for we have killed him?

I've read your text like 8 times over the course of 10 days, and the significance in the first 80% its a call to anarchy with a type of accelerationist agenda.

Yes, you try to fix and redirect the meaning in the last two paragraphs, but people are too fucktarded for such nuisances of rhetoric, and the text just has so much inertia in the other direction i pointed out.

If that's your intention, whatever.


"Can you explain to me why you think submittiing my will and desires to a tyrant is a bad idea? Genuinely curious, pls answer. BTW, i think democracy is socialism and the weak should perish."

Beau of the Fifth Column has besn a fave of mine for a while. He's a nearly seraphic straight shooter and fine analyst. This is more on the subject of WHY a military coup is unlikley in the extreme. Kinda put my mind at ease a bit. Not a lot. Just enough to take the edge off slightly.

Thats really nice, because the last thing i want to do right now is starting to learn chinese to welcome our new alien overlords, from the resulting power vacuum.

I've been hoping for a while that one of his generals would just snap his neck. I mean, I didn't have much hope that would happen, but it's a nice thought.

That would be a coup.  Not the worst possible thing, but still not great.

But is it really stealing if you're stealing from a thief, as the saying goes.


Things that any well-studied and well-trained therapist could manage to do without even needing to resort to anything unethical like brainwashing.

But those types of people avoid any kind of introspection or psychic work like the plague (well, they don't actually even avoid the plague like the plague, but you know what i mean).

I want to share a quote from a friend at this point, because I think it gets to the essence of this wierd moment:

Before the election I thought that was going to be the playbook.

But it seems that DJT simply cannot focus enough to run that game. He would have to say They Betrayed Democracy, but he does not care about democracy so it just comes out as They Tried To Cheat Me, which is not the same.

I was relieved when Fox News refused to play along. It seemed to me that they and the Republicans saw this as a fight that DJT would likely lose, and gambling on that was too dangerous for them; backing T personally to the hilt leaves them compromised if T loses.

But I misjudged the cowardice of the Republican Party. Most Republican electeds are trying to ride out this interval without either throwing fully behind Trump OR conceding to Biden.

And while Team Trump ARE fully playing along with Maximum Leader, they cannot lead from below, which means they cannot set up the They Betrayed Democracy story from their end; it has to come from the man himself. Nor does it seem that all the brownshirts out there itching for a fight have the ability to act decisively and get ahead of the President.

But this weird in-between state cannot last forever. Somebody is going to make a move and we are going to be all the way in the churn.

I do wonder if Biden's getting assassinated before he takes up office.

Hey look, open treason from sec state!


“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

When pressed on whether he and his department are preparing to hand over power to President-elect Biden and his team, Pompeo, who at times grew irritated at the questions, made it clear he didn’t see the contest as having concluded. At one point, he referred to the importance of counting “every legal vote” — phrasing other Trump allies have used to suggest without evidence that widespread voter fraud helped Biden.

Tbh for the most part its just delusion and denial... although i agree that its also preliminar setup for the possibility of armed revolt if they get any chance at doing it effectively.

I dont really have a well established theoretical perspective about these things but, such ideological postures are just a variation of defense mechanisms.

And defense mechanisms act upon what they perceive to be dangerous threats, regardless of their true relation to reality.

So unless you can manage to bunker-bust their irrational fears, you are not accomplishing ANYTHING.

They're very much waiting to see what Trump does. He might stick to the legal challenges and the cries of fraud even after defeat - he might even declare that he will remain President until 2024.

But if he runs off to Saudi Arabia while they start a revolt, they're gonna look like idiots.

But if he runs off to Saudi Arabia Mother Russia while they start a revolt, they're gonna look like idiots.
