Spearheader to feminists: No, YOU’RE the malignant solipsistic predatory narcissists without conscience!

And another thing …

Some threads on The Spearhead are virtual gold mines of crackpot misogyny. Today, from the same thread I drew upon for a post the other day, I present to you yet another long-winded antifeminist manifesto from a dude who doesn’t know shit about feminism. This time the dude in question is someone calling himself Darryl X.

Here’s his little screed:

There is only one kind of feminism. There is no first- or second-wave feminism. There is no ecofeminism or radical feminism or socialist feminism. There is no left and right. No conservative or liberal. (With which many feminists would hope to rationalize their egregious misconduct and criminal behavior – “Oh, but I’m not THAT kind of feminist.”) …

Feminism = the Borg

There is only feminism and it is evil and civilization depends upon its complete and utter elimination. Feminism is the product of false constructs and straw men and false flags and lies and fraud and is a political campaign of hate against men and children. Period.

And apparently Darryl loves the word “and.”

It has coopted our financial and legal and political and social institutions to affect the enslavement

[citation needed]

and murder

[citation needed]

and imprisonment and exile

[citation needed]

 of men and the forcible separation of children from their fathers. It is responsible for the collapse of our economies worldwide and the fall of civilization.

[citation … oh, forget it. Every single thing he says needs a citation.

Feminists are comprised of mostly women but there are some men (manginas and white knights and other descriptions).

Manginas represent!

Feminists are psychopaths and malignant narcissists, without conscience and driven to do evil. They are solipsistic, manipulative, opportunistic, parasitic and predatory. They are compulsive pathological liars and deceptive and manipulative. They have no empathy, remorse, shame or guilt. They have no analytical skills and cannot plan ahead and are short-sighted. They are shallow of affect and are remorseless and are insincere and disingenuous. They are faithless and in the absence of any analytical skills, they do not have faith in the analytical skills of others, no matter how much evidence there is of its benefits. They are career and life-long con-artists.

Huh. Are you perhaps familiar with the psychological concept of “projection,” a defense mechanism whereby you project some of your own characteristics – particularly your most unsavory ones – onto someone else, or perhaps a group of people?

Just curious.

No matter how we define or relate to one another as men in the MRM, understanding the distinction between men in the MRM and feminists is more important. That is the enemy which must be destroyed. The other men in the MRM from which each of us are different are our brothers and the only important difference is that between men in the MRM and feminists. That’s the difference which defines us and on which civilization depends.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the future of civilization doesn’t actually depend on a bunch of bitter, hateful dickwads grousing on the internet about how much ladies suck.

  1. Also srsly? at the Thomas Ball reference.

    “Thomas Ball who died for our children”

    Let’s be honest now.
    “Thomas Ball, who assaulted his infant child. Then he lost custody, because the judge was aware that he had assaulted his infant child. Then, instead of contributing meaningfully to his children’s well-being, he publicly killed himself in an attempt to guilt trip his ex-wife and inspire terrorism, thus giving his children a whole lot of shit to work through in therapy in 20 years. For our children.”

    I hope you realize that someone who can’t even act in the interests of his own children sure as hell can’t act in the interests of all children.

  2. Also, When She was Bad has ONE chapter on female perpetrators of domestic violence.

    And it still doesn’t say what you are pretending it says. Me thinks you have not read it.

  3. Unfortunately, there are no good data concerning men and poverty or homelessness because men are not included in those databases. For instance, if a man earns $70,000 per year and pays $30,000 in child support and $ 30,000 in taxes, he lives on the street on $10,000 a year but is NOT considered impoverished and is ineligible for any public assistance.

    If he lives on the street… while holding down a 70,000USD a year job he’s amazing.

    Then again, even if the court has ordered a 50 percent gross for child support, that’s (in Calif., said to have one of the higher state income tax rates). 70,000-17,500 (federal taxes) – 6,850 (state taxes) for a total of 15,815. Me,I was living, in Calif. on an income of 17,000. I wasn’t in the lap of luxury, but I wasn’t “on the street”.

    But that 30,000 number, is bullshit.

    First, women aren’t the only recipients of child support: In spring 1992, about one-half (6.2 million) of the 11.5 million custodial parents were awarded child support; award rates were higher for mothers than for fathers (56 percent compared with 41 percent). (See chart, below.)

    So, with only 1/6th of custodial parents being the fathers, although the ratio of mothers with custody is higher (9.9 million women with custody, 1.6 million men with custody).

    Men aren’t doing do badly in the issue of who gets support.

    That’s one of the misleading aspects of that little rant of Darryl’s.

    Women who received child support in 1991 were paid an average of $3,011 that year, about one-third more than their male counterparts ($2,292). On average, these support payments constituted 17 percent of 1991 money income for the women, but only 7 percent for the men.

    That difference (17 percent vs. 7 percent) implies the men who were given support awards also had a higher baseline salary than the women. Because the difference in the two average amounts received is almost 33 percent, and the difference in share of income is only 10 percent.

    The fathers’ had an overall income of 33,500USD, to the mothers’ average of 18,144USD.

    Accepting, arguendo, that there exists the occasional man who is paying half of his 70,000 income in child support, there is no way this is typical (even ignoring that 70,000 USD is almost twice the median income in the US.†

    It’s bullshit, that Darryl is peddling here. With manufactured numbers, and the implication this poverty/homelessness because of child support is a widespread problem.

    † all data from US Census

    I used data from 1995, because it was easier to cut/paste, but the <a href =http://www.census.gov/prod/2011pubs/p60-240.pdf2011 report has similar numbers. From 1993-1999 the poverty rate of custodial parents was dropping, overall. In 2000 it started to rise again. More women (a lot, because they make up 5/6ths of custodial parents) are living in poverty, but the rate of increase on the part of fathers has whipsaws, and is now higher than it was in 1993; though it did reserse the trend in 2001-2005, while mother’s rate of poverty was steadily increasing.

  4. Random nonsense ahoy, but am I supposed to be making a spearhead = penis connection here, or is it just my brain being rude?

    I don’t really want to go there to see if the connection is intentional. :(

  5. Cliff Pervocracy

    I think the spear thing comes from an old expression that calls women’s business “the distaff” (a tool for spinning thread) and men’s business “the spear” (because war is MANLY).

    That might be crediting them with too much intellectualism. They might have just skipped straight to “war is manly and big pointy spears will scare those feminists!”

  6. @Shade

    hey now that you mention it lol….

    I don’t know if that was intended by Price but I’m surprised I never caught it before since us feminists are supposedly the ones to see phallic imagery in everything. There is an actual graphic of a spearhead on the site banner, so its safe for work or whatever.

    NOTE HOW THE SPEAR IS ERECT THOUGH!!!
    XD

  7. I think they meant it to be evocative of them being the tip of the MRM, the way one describes a military unit at the front of an advance being, “the spearhead”, or the way an innovative business if described as, “spearheading” something.

    So it more megalomania, then it is erudition.

  8. I can’t even mention the Spearhead to my husband because he won’t stop giggling.

  9. That was my second thought actually, that it was supposed to be a spear tip/end-of-the-wedge sort of deal. But then my brain went back into “penis, penis, penis!” mode.

    Now i’m off to learn about this old expression Cliff mentioned that i’ve never heard of, time for my new-learnt-thing-of-the-day. :D

  10. @Shaenon

    My husband has the same reaction. I just tell him that he is a mangina :)

  11. @pecunium

    the irony in that being that the particular brand of misogyny on there is of the more hostile type that is both fluent and regurgitated throughout history. It’s like Schopenhauer but with a lot more vulgarity and bad grammar. They’ve argued against women’s right to vote on there, at least some MRAs profess to actually be for equality.

    They’re the complete opposite of “spearheading” any new or different ideas.

  12. I assumed my hurhurhur penis response was due to the fact I have an unusuaqlly juvenile sense of humour.

    (cf. “hurhurhur stimulus” on another comment thread.)

  13. I want to hear more about these men who make executive-level salaries but are homeless and living on the streets because of child support payments.

    Incidentally, the average child support payment is about $300 a month. And the cost of actually raising a child in your home is about $850 a month.

  14. Cliff Pervocracy

    The thing I never got about this child-support-outrage business is: if the child’s mother is such a horrible person, do you really want to leave your child with a horrible person who also is short of money? Is that going to work out better for your kid?

    I can understand thinking “my child’s mother is a bad person; I should have custody.” I cannot understand thinking “my child’s mother is a bad person; she should have to raise the kid without any help.” Not if you’re still pretending to care about your child.

  15. My ex when we were still together but she needed to live back in her hometown lived with ‘a friend’ (Platonic Ideal of the Nice Guy) that punched holes in drywall or cut himself whenever she did something he wasn’t happy with (mainly, still being with me and not jumping on his dick). Believe me, this whole ‘only hurting himself’ bullshit is just that, bullshit. She was terrified. It took forever for her to tell me about it because she was scared it would only escalate him. Even today he will occasionally contact her through Steam/FB/Second Life and be completely oblivious as to why she doesn’t want to stay in touch.

    I have no sympathy for this sort of shit. You can be depressed and be abusive, just like you can be a rapist even though you have cancer. These things don’t come in package deals, and I don’t have to sympathize with your need to control or abuse others because you happen to also have a mental illness. To assume these things are linked is insulting to everyone who is mentally ill and doesn’t act like a douche because of it, and it is in itself ableist.

  16. I’m pretty sure the “spear=male” identity is meant to evoke both war and penises.

    Hey, being NWOslave might be miserable, but his argumentation style requires only enough effort to type the comment.

    Of course, he probably hunts-and-pecks. Typing is women’s work. How else do you think they efficiently type all those long legal bills that their puppets then vote on? They all have to be good typists! And so therefore NWO mustn’t.

  19. ShadetheDruid

    Oh god, I was thinking the same thing! My brain basically just went “..war and penises.” I think we just turned this post into the height of maturity. :P

  20. MorkaisChosen

    Maturity is demanded by the standards of kyriarchal society and thus should be REJECTED!

    WARPENIS FOR EVERYONE!

  21. It’s almost as cool as THE THOUSAND COCK STARE :)

  22. MorkaisChosen

    That rings a bell, care to remind me?

  23. It was from this thread. Trogdor was complaining of how little girls had a thousand cock stare or something. We had a lot of fun with it in the comments section.

    http://manboobz.com/2012/05/26/trogdor-goes-to-the-store-tw-misogyny-ageism-racism-chicken-taquito-rolls-end-of-civilization/

  24. MorkaisChosen

    Ah yes. That rings a bell. :-)

  25. Hey, you know what else will leave you impoverished? HAVING KIDS. Kids are damn expensive and they don’t get less so when they are missing a parent.

    BTW, it seems to me the solution is more help for parents from the government… if the costs of childrearing were routinely subsidized such that a single parent could easily raise kids without child support, I’d be happy to eliminate it. [/socialist]

  26. MorkaisChosen

    SOCIALIST WARPENIS!

    … I may not be contributing meaningfully for a while.

    Also I need to be careful not to start calling any of my LARP weapons WARPENIS.

    One of them is six feet long and consists of a ‘shaft’ and a ‘head.’

    >_>

  27. Argenti Aertheri

    I’ll finish catching up with the thread in a moment, but I need to call bullshit on this bullshit —

    “All data reported by the Nat’l Institute of Suicide Prevention, World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control, Dept of Public Health and Human Services, Heritage Foundation and many others about suicide (no laughing matter) – suicide of men outnumbers those of women by a multiple of four not because they suffer mental illness but because they were left with no means to survive and were condemned to the street and didn’t want to suffer anymore – remember Thomas Ball who died for our children”

    “Findings from psychological autopsy (PA) studies, where the individual’s state of mind prior to the suicide is determined through extensive interviews and review of medical history, indicate that about 90 percent of persons who completed suicides in all age groups had a diagnosable mental or substance abuse disorder.”

    When I’m done fuming about how untreated mental illness means treating mental illness could lower the suicide rate, I’ll catch up on the rest of the thread. (Yeah I know, commenting without reading the comments is a terrible thing, but that’s just infuriating)

  28. ShadetheDruid

    Don’t worry, it’s basically just “penis penis penis” now, you aren’t missing much. :P

    (Actually there is some important stuff in between that and here, but still).

  29. MorkaisChosen

    It’s not just penis, it’s WARPENIS.

    (If it’s getting superannoying, do say and I’ll rein myself in. Venting some WARPENIS is amusing, though. ;-P)

  30. “Thomas Ball, who assaulted his infant child. Then he lost custody, because the judge was aware that he had assaulted his infant child. Then, instead of contributing meaningfully to his children’s well-being, he publicly killed himself in an attempt to guilt trip his ex-wife and inspire terrorism, thus giving his children a whole lot of shit to work through in therapy in 20 years. For our children.”

    Thomas Ball was a good man. He loved his children. Certainly more than their mother and the courts who denied them access to their father and kept persecuting him for child support he was obviously and mathematically unable to pay.

    I doubt if any of you have ever fought in a war. Seen your closest acquaintances die in the most gruesome ways. Thomas Ball didn’t just die for his children. He fought in a war so that you didn’t have to. And so that you could enjoy the freedom you do right now to criticize and judge a dead man.

    Thomas Ball made a mistake. And by all standards, certainly comparied to many on this site, a minor one. Living with the memory of war is incomprehensibly tough. Doing that with the guilt of not being a perfect father is even more tough.

    There are many fates which could have been visitied upon Thomas Ball for his mistake. Permanent separation from his children and persecution by an irrational office of child support isn’t any of them. It isn’t just an excessive punishment of him but of his children.

    I’ve made plenty of mistales in my life. I am a walking example of imperfection. But I try to be better. And so did Thomas Ball. I’m really glad Thomas Ball was around. He made my life better. Yours too. I feel awful whenever I think about the missed opportunities to help him.

    No one expects you to like the guy. No one expects you to understand his experience with war. No one expects you to repsect him. But a little gratitude and sympathy would go a long way to demonsrating you’re still human. For his mistake, he didn’t deserve the fate visited upon him.

    He certainly shouldn’t have felt compelled to die to make the world a better place. It isn’t. And even if none of us are directly responsible for his death, we’re indirectly responsible. None of us are better people for allowing it to happen. So stop patting yourselves on the back. For myself, I’m ashamed.

  31. Argenti Aertheri

    Yeah I’ve caught up and have nothing to add besides WARPENIS!!

    Shade, thank you for asking because I was going to but figured that was way too immature. But this nonsense needed it.

    Actually, I do have one thing — “DV assault can be as minor as blocking her egress from a room or grabbing her wrist to get her to stay and talk. DON’T DO IT!”

    I’m glad to see he at least admits that blocking egress is wrong, less thrilled about it being a how to get away with abuse guide, but it almost reads like if a guy actually follows all of it, he’d be not-abusive by accident (ok that still sucks, but should make it easier to just DTFMA).

  32. MorkaisChosen

    Any movement who takes as its martyr a man who called for people to burn down buildings in a document that included instructions on how to create home-made incendiaries- a man who, in short, made clear he was not interested in nonviolent protest- tars itself with the same brush.

    Thomas Ball called for terrorism. Idolising him is idolising a terrorist ideology. Is that what you want?

  33. Darryl, go build a shrine to your hero Ball somewhere else.

  34. Argenti Aertheri

    Darryl X — care to address how 90% of suicides have an untreated mental illness but you say otherwise?

    And idk if it’s my place to out him, so I won’t say who it is, but there’s at least one service member here btw.

    Also, most of us, if not all of us, do sympathize with the suicidal part of Ball’s actions, the part where he thought he had some right to stay married (among other parts) is what really pisses us off. Plenty of people manage to be suicidal without calling for terrorism (hell, plenty of people manage to kill themselves without hurting anyone else).

    If you actually gave a shit about suicide, instead of just using it as a talking point, you’d also realize that no, only the person who kills themself is responsible.

  35. Argenti, also, Ball had every opportunity to g anger management and work with court, but CHOSE not to. Darryl seems to be missing this point.

  36. Please don’t associate Thomas Ball and what he did with the military. Just because he was a soldier didn’t give the right to do what he did. As for feeling compelled to die to make the world a better place, that’s on him. And if you’re ashamed, well that’s on you. I have no sympathy for Ball. I’m only grateful that he didn’t take his kids with him, like Josh Powell.

  37. CassandraSays

    When someone hits their child hard enough to make the child bleed they have officially failed at being a good person.

  38. For myself, I’m ashamed.

    You’re lionizing a person who bloodied his child’s face and decided to end his life in an act of terrorism rather than face the consequences. You damn well should be ashamed. Find yourself a new hero.

  39. BTW, Dracula, loving your manticore. Our gravatars should hang out.

  40. Aw, thanks!

  41. Darryl joins the list of logical failures.

    Thomas Ball was a good man. He loved his children.

    A does not follow B.

    Certainly more than their mother

    Substantiation is lacking. On tbe basis of the evidence I disagree. A single counselling session was all he needed to do to get acces returned. This paragon of paternal love wasn’t willing to do that.

    Rather he called for (with instructions) others to commit mayhem and murder. He was asking others to deprive children of their parents. This isn’t, to my mind, indicative of his being a “good man”. I’m not opposed to all killing, but Ball’s justifications are thin, and don’t hold up to examination.

    I doubt if any of you have ever fought in a war. Seen your closest acquaintances die in the most gruesome ways.

    Wrong again bucko. I have. Care to share your unit of assignment/attachment, and your tour dates? I was with A Co. 525 MI Bn, OIF-1.

    He fought in a war so that you didn’t have to. And so that you could enjoy the freedom you do right now to criticize and judge a dead man.

    The fuck? He was fighting to return a right that hasn’t been lost (the right to criticise stupid assholes who immolate themselves in a vain, and pointless, attempt to inspire a mass-uprising against a specious oppression)? I thought he was all about ending the reign of terror the family court system of New Hampshire was inflicting on men everywhere.

    Not it’s all about freedom of expression. Who knew?

    There are many fates which could have been visitied upon Thomas Ball for his mistake. Permanent separation from his children and persecution by an irrational office of child support isn’t any of them.

    Glad you admitted this. What separation he did suffer was self-inflicted.

    1: He beat his four-year old daughter for acting like a four-year old.

    2: He was told to go a trivial level of counselling.

    3: He didn’t.

    4: His wife filed for divorce.

    5: He had a child suppport award he didn’t pay.

    6: He never asked for relief.

    7: He killed himself and advocated murder, on the part of others, to avenge him.

    Some fucking hero you’ve hitched your wagon to.

    No one expects you to understand his experience with war. Bullshit, right there (and higher up) you did just that.

    Let’s look at his, “experience with war.

    Ball claimed service, “going back to the Vietnam War. He was born in Feb. 1958. That means he was 18 in 1971. The US was in drawdown, with Vietnamization in full swing. By 1972 we had no active combat operations going on (there were still advsiors, but these tended to be smaller units, SF Companies, and the like).

    So show me some proof of his service in a combat zone, until then, it’s you arrogating an experience of mine, in support of this idiot; because it sounds good.

    It’s also bullshit to say that just becuase he might have been in combat his attempt at martydom by suicide is the result of that.

    Don’t be such a fuckhead.

  42. Shit… that posted as I was trying to proof it. Sorry for it being messier than usual.

  43. Cliff, why did I think you were a libertarian?

    Two axioms that I don’t accept and so feel unable to call myself a libertarian:
    1. State X is always worse than private X. (I don’t think state X is always better than private X but nor do I think it’s always worse; it depends on the state, the private entity, and the X.)
    2. It is feasible for a significant number of people to live in a way that doesn’t impact anyone else.

    If those are true, most libertarian ideas I’ve seen fall very neatly into place, but neither matches up very well with my (limited) observations.

    kirby:

    Narcissism isn’t even a governmental theory… it’s an aspect of personality. I honestly think he’s drawing off of some “evil-sounding words” generator on the web.

    Maybe he’s taking the list from words that have been applied to him.

    katz:

    At least “humanism” managed to stay off the list.

    Probably because it would be accurate.

    hellkell:

    I bought a scented fucking candle this weekend

    I’ve heard scented candles aren’t good for fucking. Burn too hot.

  44. Hershele, they’re not good for fucking, but they are excellent for MISANDRY.

  45. Morkai: One of them is six feet long and consists of a ‘shaft’ and a ‘head.’

    I feel inadequate. My weapon with a shaft and head isn’t 6 feet long. It’s not even four feet.

    It is multi-purpose though, perhaps that makes up for its shortcomings.

  46. Thomas Ball was a good man. He loved his children. Certainly more than their mother

    “I’m willing to contribute to your care, even if I don’t agree with the circumstances” is a hell of a lot more use to a child than “I’m willing to do horrific, traumatizing things that you never asked me to do, supposedly on your behalf.”

  47. Cliff, why did I think you were a libertarian?

    Because I was! But I haven’t identified that way for a while, because of stuff and reasons. (Mostly experiences with just how badly employers can backstab their employees when there aren’t enough restrictions on them.) I still edge libertarian on a lot of issues that don’t involve screwing the poor, but I can’t call myself a libertarian anymore.

  48. Actually, if Ball was born in 1958, he turned 18 in 1976. That was the year I was born, so I’m a little fuzzy on this, but weren’t we well out of Vietnam by then?

  49. @ Seraph

    Maybe he fought in the Falkland Islands War :P

  50. Argenti Aertheri

    “Actually, if Ball was born in 1958, he turned 18 in 1976. That was the year I was born, so I’m a little fuzzy on this, but weren’t we well out of Vietnam by then?”

    That’s the same year my father was born and he still complains he didn’t get to fight in Vietnam (idfk, I can’t explain anything he says or does) — he’d have had to get parental permission to go and that’s a long story. But yeah, 1958 means the only way Ball was in Vietnam was if he got parental permission at 16 to join voluntarily.

  51. My dad was born in 1956 and he missed the war. I can’t imagine someone born in 1958 participating.

  52. @Darryl X

    “Thomas Ball was a good man.”

    Good people don’t write terrorist manifestos, regardless of the circumstances. And how is his writing terrorist directions to burn government employees alive “making the world safer for our children?”

    He beat his 4 year old child. HE BEAT HIS 4 YEAR OLD CHILD. That’s not “a little mistake.” That’s a felony. Had he done the exact same thing to an adult, and had that adult pressed charges, he would have been looking at 3 to 5 years in prison.

    What did you expect the court to do? Accept that Thomas Ball, who, had he actually been prosecuted for the assault of his own daughter, would have still been serving his prison sentence, would not beat his child randomly again because he promised he wouldn’t? Despite his refusal of anger management or therapy? Despite the fact that he was so angry that he was already secretly plotting the murder of government employees? Despite the fact that he was so controlling that he wanted to prevent his wife from leaving him?

    Do you really want courts to have no regard at all for children’s safety?

  53. Oops, bad arithmetic. So no way Ball was in Vietnam. War, in toto, ended in 1975.

  54. @Cliff: yeah, I used to identify as libertarian too. The more experience I had with Capitalism As It Is Practiced Today, the more I became a proponent of a strong Regulatory State. And every time the Capitalism gets nakeder and uglier in this country, I get more trenchant in my opposition.

    It gets much worse and I may take to marching in the streets…….

  55. @Ugh
    “Good people don’t write terrorist manifestos, regardless of the circumstances.”

    Virtually all of our founding fathers wrote terrorist manifesto’s inspiring the common people to rise up and throw off the oppressive rule of the international bankers. Many acts of terrorism were committed, (Boston tea party is one I’m sure you’ve heard of). As of 1913 the international bankers have reasserted control in the U.S. We live under their rule once again. They write your laws, control your media, run your education, tell you what to eat, what drugs to take, what is and isn’t socially acceptable. They tell you what’s right and wrong.

  56. Depends on what you mean by terrorist. It’s not clear that, per the modern definition of terrorism the Boston Tea Party counted. It was certainly an act of insurrection, but not all insurrection is terroristic, even when violent.

    Were there acts of terrorism? Yes. The tories who were tarred and feathered were victims of terrorism. Thomas Paine, with Common Sense, and Patrick Henry with his oratorical flourishes in alehouses weren’t. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence weren’t signing a terrorist document; a revolutionary one, but the two are not synonymous.

    Nice try though, and pleasantly free of your usual vitriol; though the “international bankers” is a bit otiose. It was some very specifically national banking they were against (The Colonial System, which said that to make something in the Colonies, for local use, was a crime).

  57. “Spearhead” is a cross-cultural colloquial reference to men at the front of a battle or the troops that are sent in first to fight a battle. They’re usually the ones that suffer the greatest incidence of mortality or casualty. I’m not sure when it was first used but it appears in text going back at least four-thousand years.

  58. WAR. PENIS.

  59. On a more serious note, it’s the people at the front of the battle- vanguard and such. With some effort I can probably find some cultures where there were female ones historically.

  60. I was going to post a comment saying “in before WARPENIS”, but I thought better of it. I now have regrets.

  61. WARPENIS TRANSCENDS REGRET

  62. @ Howard –

    “@Cliff: yeah, I used to identify as libertarian too. The more experience I had with Capitalism As It Is Practiced Today, the more I became a proponent of a strong Regulatory State. And every time the Capitalism gets nakeder and uglier in this country, I get more trenchant in my opposition.”

    I don;t identify with anything anymore. Since industry influences government so much anymore (lobbyists, anyone? or even closer associations) with our military-industrial complex, “regulation” in my experience amounts to industry regulating itself under the guise of government. A big government is the same as a big industry. It’s all the same. Very incestuous. Capitalism as it is practiced today amounts to fascism. At the same time, socialism amounts to fascism too. Currently there is too much of both. And in our government, there doesn’t appear to be much choice of leadership. Liberals impose too much on the population in one way and conservatives impose too much another way. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

    That’s rather nihilistic.

    “socialism amounts to fascism too”

    Please go learn why what you just said is beyond wrong. You don’t even have to do much work, that’s why humans invented Wikipedia.

    (Hint: If you’d have said “authoritarianism” rather than “fascism”, you would have still been wrong, but not uberly so).

  65. @ Morkais –

    I didn’t say I like it LOL. Nothing “rather” about it. It IS nihilistic. But I think it is an accurate portrayal.

  66. @Darryl X:

    You aren’t wrong. But… you’re wrong.

    Government socialism as a puppet tool of the corporations is A) not really socialism and B) everything you describe.

    Yeah.

    “Government of the people, by the people, FOR the people.”

    They own it, yes they do. Obama is a corporatist.

    And when the people stand up together, they are more than any corporation, more than any government. When they stand together they are more than can be resisted.

    You can listen to those who want you to despair, those who want you to lie down and stop resisting so they can easily use you as a serf.

    Or you can fight.

    I have been the tool of the oppressor, and I have been the person who lay there and didn’t resist.

    And I’ll be damned if I’ll do either again.

  67. @ Shade –

    I think it depends upon degree. Once any kind of government becomes too big, it devolves into fascism or one of those other “isms”. Since the US has a large military-industrial complex, any attempts at socialism or capitalism or any combination thereof (or some other type of government for that matter) pretty much becomes an expression of fascism.

  68. @ Howard –

    “I have been the tool of the oppressor, and I have been the person who lay there and didn’t resist.
    And I’ll be damned if I’ll do either again.”

    I heard that. Don’t need to tell me twice.

  69. And the solution? Ron Paul.
