Life in Amer¬≠i¬≠ca is very much a very dark, fall¬≠en place. still liv¬≠ing under the delu¬≠sion of being the hero¬≠ic pal¬≠adin: a knight of pris¬≠tine heart and dia¬≠mond soul. it loves the lime¬≠light, it lusts for atten¬≠tion + affec¬≠tion. yet it despis¬≠es the intel¬≠lect, the artist, the poet. it glo¬≠ri¬≠fies the cre¬≠ative liar (politi¬≠cians), the art¬≠ful assas¬≠sin (media), the intel¬≠lec¬≠tu¬≠al thief of intel¬≠lec¬≠tu¬≠al prop¬≠er¬≠ty (Chi¬≠na). it assigns hero¬≠ic alphamale sta¬≠tus to the white man and paints non-whites as after¬≠thoughts (but: only if they‚Äôre male). also por¬≠trays women of col¬≠or as being more hero¬≠ic and aggres¬≠sive than say Asian Amer¬≠i¬≠can males. yet some¬≠how it owns and main¬≠tains a patent on the word racism. some¬≠how mag¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly able to label peo¬≠ple racist but nobody else can.

it wor¬≠ships at the tem¬≠ple of Jeff Bezoz and is a whore for his cheap¬≠ly wrought goods from Chi¬≠na. Ama¬≠zon is Amer¬≠i¬≠can‚Äôs favorite whore¬≠house. much of this anti-cul¬≠ture stems from liv¬≠ing life online think¬≠ing we are liv¬≠ing life at all. yet we‚Äôve been con¬≠di¬≠tioned to think noth¬≠ing we do is nec¬≠es¬≠sar¬≠i¬≠ly detri¬≠men¬≠tal. to which I say wake up from that crock of horse shit. a drunk¬≠ard will always sing prais¬≠es for wine, and a crack¬≠head for that crack rock. so will emo¬≠tion¬≠al idol¬≠a¬≠tors extol the virtues of being a wastrel of time. What I‚Äôm propos¬≠ing isn‚Äôt the nega¬≠tion of cyber¬≠space, it‚Äôs a renais¬≠sance of it. con¬≠sid¬≠er me a sep¬≠a¬≠ratist in this. we need bet¬≠ter places + spaces. screw all of these dig¬≠i¬≠tal pimps try¬≠ing to turn you into their next trick.

Elon Musk‚Äôs twit¬≠ter files revealed what we all knew to be true (or maybe just me). these psy¬≠ops were tox¬≠ic waste dump¬≠sters filled with garbage con¬≠tent. when you bathe in that men¬≠tal¬≠ly, emo¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly it affects us spir¬≠i¬≠tu¬≠al¬≠ly. all of the trolls, haters, biters, wankers, doxxers, biters, cyber¬≠bul¬≠lies regur¬≠gi¬≠tat¬≠ing tox¬≠ic sludge 24‚ĀĄ7. every piece of sup¬≠posed news ques¬≠tion¬≠able. at best designed to influ¬≠ence you about a thing, nev¬≠er to inform. not with clar¬≠i¬≠ty of con¬≠text in mind. truth was blas¬≠phe¬≠my on these plat¬≠forms. I saw them as nar¬≠cis¬≠sis¬≠tic pur¬≠vey¬≠ors of cor¬≠rupt lies, fake news, decep¬≠tive con¬≠structs. noth¬≠ing that is tru¬≠ly sat¬≠is¬≠fy¬≠ing, pure, worth¬≠while. every¬≠thing made to shape you into a use¬≠less, unthink¬≠ing zom¬≠bie via group/‚Äčright think. even self aware¬≠ness of this did lit¬≠tle to free minds from these vir¬≠tu¬≠al pris¬≠ons. but I must con¬≠fess these pris¬≠ons were util¬≠i¬≠tar¬≠i¬≠an: they did well to iso¬≠late the dam¬≠aged in con¬≠tain¬≠ment. these were max secu¬≠ri¬≠ty pris¬≠ons w/‚Äčo locked doors or guards. the pris¬≠on¬≠ers want¬≠ed to be impris¬≠oned. they absolute¬≠ly loved it. and they hat¬≠ed any¬≠body who did¬≠n‚Äôt. any¬≠body who dared to dis¬≠agree, den¬≠i¬≠grate, dis¬≠par¬≠age them were very bad peo¬≠ple. ene¬≠mies wor¬≠thy of destruction.

since the damn¬≠ing rev¬≠e¬≠la¬≠tions big tech/‚Äčlegacy media tried down¬≠play¬≠ing (as well as intel¬≠li¬≠gence agen¬≠cies) one thing stood out: we need to form new spaces. not only this but there needs to be ter¬≠ra¬≠farm¬≠ers to inhab¬≠it those spaces and cul¬≠ti¬≠vate them into habi¬≠tats for human¬≠i¬≠ty. Mas¬≠ta¬≠don was as emp¬≠ty as it was bor¬≠ing pri¬≠or to the twit¬≠ter takeover. it quick¬≠ly filled with lib¬≠er¬≠tard refugees need¬≠ing to hyper¬≠ven¬≠ti¬≠late and now its their echo cham¬≠ber. not real¬≠ly: they just think b/‚Äčc they invad¬≠ed they own a place. truth was they nev¬≠er owned twit¬≠ter. it just so hap¬≠pened that Jack Dorksy and oth¬≠er Cal¬≠i¬≠for¬≠ni¬≠ca¬≠tion kids ran it were mil¬≠que¬≠toast snowflakes. Jack was a douchebag tyrant. before I used to think it was sim¬≠ply Mark Zucker¬≠berg (and oth¬≠ers like him) who ruined the inter¬≠net cul¬≠ture. but in real¬≠i¬≠ty its these most¬≠ly Amer¬≠i¬≠can lib¬≠tards that flood¬≠ed spaces sow¬≠ing dis¬≠sen¬≠sion, chaos and hate. all b/‚Äčc their stu¬≠pid can¬≠di¬≠date of choice was¬≠n‚Äôt in pow¬≠er. these unsta¬≠ble (unhinged) peo¬≠ple could¬≠n‚Äôt under¬≠stand that they weren‚Äôt the majority.

this isn‚Äôt news or sud¬≠den rev¬≠e¬≠la¬≠tions, they‚Äôve been around. what we need, ought, must do is stem the tide, thwart the mad¬≠ness, and calm the storm of chaos. you can‚Äôt do this with sheer will. it has to be a con¬≠ta¬≠gious afflic¬≠tion of our souls, stirred to life with the fire of alive¬≠ness. peo¬≠ple must want to effect change to actu¬≠al¬≠ly make it work. you can‚Äôt sit in the side¬≠lines think¬≠ing this is some¬≠one else‚Äôs mess to clean up after. the rea¬≠son there is a mess is because peo¬≠ple like you were silent when they should‚Äôve spo¬≠ken up. its not do what you can when you can but what you must when you must.
