Quote note (#307)

Some insightful sadness at The Guardian:

However, I’ve come to realise that the specific nature of the horror frequently isn’t the primary reason for the glee. It takes a certain level of callous disregard to respond to human suffering in such a manner, but the real target of derision is most often People Like Me. That is, socially liberal, middle-class do-gooders piously informing people that they should care about these various issues. In the words of Rage Against the Machine, the message being conveyed is clear: “Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me.”

    Electing Donald J Trump president of the United States is just about the most punk rock act imaginable in the current political climate. The glee that we feel, and the utter horror the elites feel, brings to mind the transgressiveness of early punk rock acts (but I’m too young to remember that)

    Aesthetic realism. Embrace it. Or fade.

    The trouble is, these people believe in a weird, linear theory of history and that they happen to be at the forefront of it, even if it involves following a book written 150 years ago.

    They don’t seem to think what they believe is good so much as good is whatever they happen to believe. It might explain the double standards and toxic levels of in-group preference we often see.

    Humans are always rebelling, with the same result: less social order. Revolution is a dead model as a result. Renovation is not.

    Her examples of concern are all very revealing. No sympathy for the Christian and Yezidi genocide, no love for the French men, women and children mowed down in Nice, no mention of the war on cops in America, no mention of the thousands of children raped and enslaved in England. And on and on and on.

    When you read articles like this, you begin to understand why someone like Deng Xioping sent all them red guards down to re-education through labour camps.

    I was speaking to this bitch online years ago. A SJW from conception. Had a faux chip on her shoulder. Glad to see her making a tit of herself infront of such a large audience.

    The missing part of her knowledge is a lot of us care deeply about a lot of things – its just not what she thinks is important. Her almost complete blind spot in that awareness because it privileges the individual over anything else. So if we prize the culture or even species over the individual, we cannot be understood as anything but cartoon villains.

    And on top of that, of course, is the lack of understanding of why we “don’t care to be hurt.” Reaction fundamentally honors self-sacrifice. What kind of “educated” person misses that?

    Punk Rock this is…

    Someone needed to tell this bunch you can’t run an Empire – I mean the Globalist TransAmerican One – if you’re a sniveling neurotic.

    “it’s undeniable that the ability to affect things must feel thrilling, even if the specific nature of your influence mainly involves just totally fucking stuff up.”

    Altering reality on the ground, rather than playing video games is thrilling. Arsonists in Israel and vandals in Portland, OR know this thrill very well. It is a very powerful rush and highly addictive.
