"Since the emancipation of the third estate, the formation of bourgeois democracy and its transformation into mass industrial democracy, the neutralization of politically relevant differences and postponement of a decision about them has developed to the point of turning into its opposite: a total politicization of everything, even of seemingly neutral domains of life."
 ----Karl Lowith.

1. The future will be ruled by meth addled drone operators.

2. Neither trot nor ski because the shit mars snow.

3. Monetization is the easiest nihilism.

4. Editing T.S. Eliot: "This is how the world ends, not with a bang, but without giving a single fuck for 'people'."

5. The English and French Revolutions did fine without adhering to Scientific Principles. The Liberal fetish for a popular appreciation of Evolutionary Theory is reactionary.

6. Hegel's work is the best criticism of "common sense" philosophy. (Realism, Empiricism)

7. Orthodoxy is where ideologies go to die. (please note alternate meanings of "doxy" and "die")

8. Making conscious resistance to authority an ideology places it under glass, dead, pinned like a butterfly enabling hierarchical collection and classification.

9. Natural Selection: Mythical as the land of milk and honey, rational kernel of the Cosmos, etc.

10. Social Media: Canaries crying in sharecropped mines.

Not Augustine or Aquinas, Here's the True Inspiration for Obama's "Kill List"

"But the anathema must strike down man most directly and most visibly: the exterminating angel circles this unhappy globe like the sun, and allows one nation a respite only to strike down others. When crimes, and especially crimes of a certain kind, accumulate to a designated point, the angel relentlessly quickens its tireless flight. Like a rapidly turning burning torch, the immense speed of his movement allows him to be simultaneously present everywhere in his formidable orbit. He strikes all the peoples of the earth at the same time. At other times, a minister of a precise and infallible vengeance, he pursues particular nations and bathes them in blood. Do not expect them to make any effort to escape or alleviate their sentence. It is if as we saw these great criminals, enlightened by their consciences, requesting the punishment and accepting it for the sake of their atonement. So long as they have any blood left they will come to offer it, and soon a sparse youth will get used to telling of these devastating wars caused by the crimes of their fathers."
--------- Joseph de Maistre, St. Petersburg Dialogues: Or Conversations on the Temporal Government of Providence.

Whistling Graveyards(Pop Fascism's Latest Hit)

“Barack Obama believes in options: ‘Maintain my options,’ “ said Jeh C. Johnson, a campaign adviser and now general counsel of the Defense Department."--"Secret 'Kill List' Proves a Test of Obama's Principles and Will"(to kill anyone he decides), Jo Becker and Scott Shane, New York Times.

The New York Times is once again floating "serious leadership" campaign propaganda for an Executive hoping to earn approval for a policy of indiscriminate(by it's own stated "principles") mass murder.

Namedrop Augustine and Aquinas to dazzle "thoughtful" liberals with Crusader apologia. Natch.

The decider is tested in secret. Can he continue to muster the will to kill anyone he wishes? It's a hard cross to bear. In the safety of the White House he meets with his advisors and mulls over which faces to erase with joystick operated drones. Very serious and heroic to take up the power of life and death over anyone, anywhere, at any time. A caricature of a living God brought to you by the latest military technology.

Fear not proud Americans. He's "maintaining his options" as Commander in Chief of the greatest nation forever. If he decides to kill you know his principles deemed it necessary to protect the Homeland. He's got your back, even in death. Accept his principles and, as a patriot, surrender your will to "his options".

The sound of whistling fills the sky...

Bloody Diamond: Head of England's Oldest and Wealthiest Crime Family Celebrates 60 Years on the Dole

"She sang a heavenly lullaby,
The song of renunciation
By which the people, that giant clown,
Is lulled from its lamentation."
