Shit comes in many shapes and sizes and if we’re lucky it smells like roses to us and our partners. But everything boils down to shit for the vast majority of people, not flowers. The question is whether you can avoid smelling it or not.
Whether it’s a job, a religion, a scientific position, or a policy discussion, odds are its just a bunch of douche-bags agreeing to get together and stare at the shit-house of hierarchy while negotiating ways to get someone else to wipe until the music stops. Like hypnotized slaves the hordes congregate each day with a new hope of making the person below them eat the shit so that they can feel better. It can be really simple like in a mob family or really complicated like at a university conference on ethics but it’s always the same dirty pathology.
If the new disciples of truth aka religious zealots of reason, science and democracy wanted to actually smash the temple of religious barbarism to bits they would do something actually radical like redefine the parameters of human experience without the need for discrimination and exclusion. But somehow they find amazingly complex ways of avoiding anything that might achieve that. For all the ‘progress’ in reason, technology, and society it seems as though people almost hope for the most alienated life that could possibly be designed.
The jig is up and we all know who really won. Let’s stop pretending and get on with taking charge of evolution according to the only value that seems to have universally survived all change throughout history: snobbism. In my experience most people are as snobby as their position in the alienated pyramid of lies they are part of allows them to be, whether it takes the form of racism, heightism, or whatever and whether or not it is acknowledged for what it is.
I agree with the ‘good’ productive people who are ‘real democrats’ and have a strong work ethic. Let’s get on with business and do some real stewardship of the hierarchical alienation we all agreed to favor: let’s cull the population of all the people whose real needs will never be met. Or does that make things worse for the powerful people who weren’t so morally degenerate as to ‘make some bad decisions’ (ie acknowledge that their free will as socially supported mutual powers has been taken away from them) in their lives that ‘denied’ them success…in a system that demands losers?? Let’s be social and ethical. No to the nasty anti-social drop-outs who shirk responsibility! If you don’t have a good attitude then go die! If you can’t have a good attitude then we as good people should help you die, not sustain you for our own benefit and then blame you like a righteous bag-of-shit worshipping pillar of the community would do.
I value pleasure over ‘life’. Especially when the people pushing life as a value are dirty liars who are living off other people’s pain. Kill them or kill the rest of us. Let’s put that team spirit to good use, just do it, get ‘er done, just for the taste of it.
To worship life requires two things: change that is real or death. Life on earth for most humans is designed to be shit so to affirm life as a ‘good’ member of society means either change or death. To pretend to want life by striking a balance is worse than dishonesty, it’s worse than worshiping death, it’s making flowers into shit while living off human trafficking, slavery and the daily dose of snobbery that passes for glamor and hope in most people’s lives.
