So, Woman for Life is playing tag, but I have meetings scheduled all day from 9 to 3. Then I still have work to do. Unlikely I’ll be able to respond today. Perhaps tomorrow. Hmmm… Gives me time to ponder.
So, I’ve pondered…
- I am somewhat of an anarchist. I do not believe in the the conclusions of John Locke or of the so-called Enlightenment. I believe society is arbitrary and is based on a lie. I think most people cannot understand this, and so they go along believing the lie. I do not believe anyone in the world is actually free, unless I rely on Sartre’s proposition that says one is always free to choose between life and death. Some freedom, eh?
- I do not believe that “all people are created equal,” as neither did the Founding Fathers of the United States of America (despite what they had written). I don’t believe anybody could intelligently know the differences that create this inequality, so we pretend we are all the same, and there is no justice in a human context. We try do imagine we are not arbitrary and capricious beings. Nobody actually believes we are all created equal except at the most superficial level.
- I don’t subscribe to gender roles. Men are men. Women are women. As per number two, above, men are not equal to men let alone women. We are all unique, yet we are all the same—of the same source.
- I don’t believe humans are inherently good, and I don’t believe in absolutes—good and evil, right and wrong. I believe most humans are selfish and self-serving utilitarians. Only those who work hard at being good end up acting good. These figures include the likes of Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus, and a very short list of others.
- I do not believe in Capitalism. Despite the rhetoric, Capitalism and the American Dream are based on lies. I don’t believe in private property. I believe the earth is, and no one can own any piece of it. Most, if not all, owner was initially at the expense of exploitation and violence. These right are propagated through implied and legislated violence. Only States have the right to be violent. Individuals may be violent only at the behest of the State. All others will be controlled through State-sponsored violence. War is terrorism. There is no bigger terrorist threat in the world today—if at any other time—than the hegemony that is the United States of America.
- Language corrupts reality. I feel that the construct of language is used to oppress, even though I happen to enjoy language, etymology, and rhetoric.
Well, I guess I took an overtly heavy political tack, but I suppose I am in a pissy mood given the state of world affairs. OK, so there is nothing in here about sex and such, but as I have said, this is not all I think about. If it helps to keep this post in character, I was lucky enough to get two blowjobs over the weekend. That has to count for something.
