Mimetic Behaviour

Resistance

Each generation raises its fists and marches in protest to the offensiveness of the contemporary cultural paradigm – rightfully so, yet each generation sells out like its predecessors after a time; hopefully, each generation leaves behind some positive remnant in its wake, before selling out to the very system it protests. Change is needed desperately, but human nature is now, still, what it was a few thousand years ago and before; human – there lies the predicament; the “mimetic illusion of modern individualism.”

“The children repeat the crimes of their fathers precisely because they believe they are morally superior to them. This false difference is already the mimetic illusion of modern individualism, which represents the greatest resistance to the mimetic truth that is re-enacted again and again in human relations. The paradox is that the resistance itself brings about the reenactment.”
René Girard

 

The Madness of Crowds

Separate the family structure from itself
Leaving the individual (child) left to its own devices
He/she brings him/herself up in an emotionally isolated world
Latching onto anything that can replace the loss of genuine “care” but! finds no care, just resentment.The Corporate Government now owns your children, and will mold them accordingly and drug them as they see fit – indoctrination started years ago; its right on track.
Herding the population away from their homes, loved ones, and communities during the industrial revolution into the Cities seems to have been the beginning of this “Madness of Crowds”.
Disconnecting small communities – connected by care- and driving them into “The City” where caring was and still is a profession, inflicts a paradigm shift onto the urban newcomer he/she just aren’t prepared for; payment replaced care, the “individual” became lost, confused, and desperate, drowning in a sea of unauthentic “care” yet needed to learn to swim in these tainted waters – home to the shark.
“Love and care” became institutionalized, the institution became family, the authentic family became lost, the institution then became Mother, Father and finally, god.

Public Relations: inspiration and motivation for everything we think – and do.
Systematic economic, spiritual, and emotional rape, via repetitious sound bites, false profits, glorified leaders pulled out of local snake-infested swamps; most, or all, vigorously gearing all their energies toward cultivating inner turmoil among the masses, in exchange for control, of objects (us). Drugs, entertainment, BS illusory political theatre &c. all to suppress the memories of the once lived set of communities spread all throughout our country grounded, at least somewhat, in “Care”.

The polarization of the masses through all the above
lead to blindness, gullibility, twisted appetites driven by the loss of authentic care, and finally, the result – violence.

Burn it all to the ground…really!?

I’ve been a liberal most of my life up until the last few years. I couldn’t any longer condone freedom of speech, and freedom of expression, being violently attacked from the Alt establishment left, who – the leaders – feed from the same trough as the Republicans (Wall Street & such). I’m not a Republican by any stretch of the imagination, but I certainly see the insanity taking place in this country today. Re-writing history through the dismantling of statues, demonizing, and demonetizing, political commentators on independent alternative social media news  – this to me is batshit crazy! and is also begging for neo-Marxism to step into the vacuum created by this nearsightedness (we cause enough problems and pain with capitalism, I don’t think Marxism will improve things at this time. These emotional trigger responses that seem to be permeating our Universities and workplaces – all in the name of unity – are what I believe to be seed for division, as opposed to what it “claims” to be – progressive. The influence of postmodernism should be considered problematic; not because of what the postmodernist brought over from France – by way of brilliant minds – who I love to study and learn, but from what our educators and politicians did with it. Much what like Hitler did with Nietzsche; hijacked him, distorted his work, for their own purposes. Civil war is a real possibility if we don’t learn to think in a critical manner and get far away from this emotional knee-jerk reactionary mindset that’s being promoted at every turn. These statues: they are history markers, weather good or bad, they should be left for all to see, warts and all; no culture that attempts to dismantle its own history does well in the long run. Wendell Berry once wrote: “Modern ignorance is in people’s assumption that they can outsmart their own nature.” in this case, erase the evidence of it.

Addiction…

Here we are 2017 and still building soapboxes out of blood, sweat and tears, and the the dried up bones of our forefathers in order to continue, and maintain an elaborate lifestyle for these snake oil salesman – we so admire – to stand on and preach from, about freedom. The perpetuation of this insanity that allows for these Apes and Billy goats to live in their ivory towers – far away from the foul stinch they cultivate here and around the world – and continually hypnotize the masses into divisions that perpetuate their control, is unmistakably brilliant! and hanus at the same time. They captivate us with their sincerity, gain trust with their rhetoric, and bleed us to death with their greed and inhumanity. And yet! we continue to buy what they sell. Fabricated Bu** Sh** sprayed with cheap perfume to hide the stench. Soma is enticing to the senses; and what junkie doesn’t worship his or her dealer.

Colorado Theater Massacre (Huge Zero)

Sometimes you just need to express what it is you see in a given day, this seems like a good way to do just that…Its half past 8 p.m. and I just heard about the theater shooting in Colorado…WHAT DA _ _ _ _ ! Im in shock, in the 57 years I have lived on this violent planet, I dont think Iv ever felt so sad about where things are headed in reference to humanity in general, other then 911, and the Fed building in Oklahoma…We live in a small sliver of of the planet, in an even smaller sliver of history that has aloud us to live both free and prosperous, even if we live at the poverty level which I have been doing for a few years now dew to health problems, we can still live with dignity. I still can live like a human being thank to this time in history, and the country Iv been lucky enough to be born in…(Thats not the case around the rest of the world, and certainly not the case in our known human history)…AND yet the culture is slowly cultivating this kind of madness displayed in these mass murders we have been witnessing the last 30 years or so more and more each year is get uglier and uglier…Aside from the day to day crime all of humanity have to live with each and every day…This last massacre breaks my heart.  I pray for the souls of the innocent people that lost their lives and were wounded by this,  defective human being…My God little children shot at the movies on a saturday night…
