Sedate, Exterminate


Something is dying. You can smell it on the air; taste it on the ether.
The cornerstones on which (we are told) our society is built – stability; security; morality; the family; the caring state – have (been) turned against us.
Fear.
Administered in ever increasing doses in a desperate attempt to sedate the patient, piped in via the media; advertised as this year’s must-have insurance policy – F E A R.
Strung upside-down while money is hoovered from our pockets to feather the vultures’ nests.
And the anger that boils within us (quietly, for we are no match for 'public' broadcasting) is made safe by those bomb-disposal experts at The Ministry of Truth – if you don’t get behind the global message, you’re the violent anarchist, the terrorist, fodder for the baton and taser.
F.E.A.R.
Taste it in the luke-warm foam on your latte; hear it echo in your ringtone, watch it unfold on the market news tonight (as if our lives depend on how much money those cunts make out of nothing), suck it into your dreams and kiss its ugly face on the morning commute.
Something is dying, and it’s not going to go quietly.

Yes it's very true.It can't go quietly.This is the last straw,people have really enough.Unfortunately,before we can have a changed world and peace and equality,a lot of blood will be spread,but then mother nature too is going to raise its voice,I'd rather die like that instead of violence you know,if I had to chose,unless a flying saucer is coming to give us a choice to follow them or die in here.(what would you do?)..ah it's a shame we have to arrive to that point but there are too many mother f** as leaders!Especially in France(most of those you see on TV smiling and shaking hands have been on trials and now they are still around,i don't understand that).

You're right Candie - people are getting angry (at last). Smiling (while lying) politicians/managers are the face of everything that is wrong with the system.
Watching the stormtroopers coralling the protests while those fuckers kissed arse and siphoned another kings ransom out of our pockets at the G20 was particularly sickening.

I've been in media boycott for a while. I know what's coming and it isn't good, my friend. The pot has boiled over, so to speak. Scalding the common man into a rage which will not soon cool down!

Pisces Iscariot said...

Yeah, 'official media' boycott is a good idea since it the obvious propaganda employed merely raises my blood pressure.

Oh I think this can be applied to the media; from Nietzsche's Zarathustra( upon meeting the Kings )"Once-in the year of grace number one, I think--
The sybil said, drunken without any drink,
'Now everything goes wrong! Oh, woe!
Decay! The world has never sunk so low!
Rome sank to whoredom and became a stew,
The Caesars became beasts, and God--a Jew!'"~~~~direct from the translation of the book!

Can you imagine the media turning this around? I haven't read the full tale (as it is pretty lengthy ), but some very interesting things prevail....surprising Nietsche hasn't been picked apart like Nostradamus...

You don't have to be psychic - this sort of thing has been going on since way back.
The artists are the one's who first spot the fact that the emporor is naked.
Unfortunately the media already has a line in Nietzsche: the association with the Nazis

I'll agree there( tho' I've not seen the reports on it ). And it's easy to see( from what I've read so far ), how Adolph twisted Nietzsche's writings round to suit his own purposes; what, like 50-odd years later? 'Tis pretty amazing what some shepherds will do( and how they interpret things ), to head up the flock...

word verification=frapitc

I interpret as "fit crap"

round and round we go and where it stops nobody knows...

some do: armegeddon's coming, baby! so they say...

oh but if only...

and here in the western west, the u.s., still that ugly quiet...

latinos marched by tens of thousands (once), and then they stopped...

i hope we get louder over here, bro. something's coming, something good, if i can wait.. say, what? romeo and juliet? get over it!

the capitalist heyday is coming to an end! if only... we would act! now that's existentialism at it's finest!

peace and love, bro. and the end of corporate capitalism! xoxoxoox
