¡Consolidated! (PostBailout AdornoStrength-HowieLivin’ Mix)

Back from 1989 with a double major in Armchair Revolution and a minor in Personal Theory it’s -¡C!-

Not a consumer product – yet. They are of the same mind as i about money = it sux. So go get some more of their beats and smarmy smartass sciences from them for free:

After, you can go talk to at least 1 (one) of the people in your neighborhood. Just to say “hi”. Do it! You won’t regret it.

For Adam (who’s right despite having short hair) and Tommy (who understands these ol’ sk00l Bay Thangz)

Decolonize yourselves. It’s going to be an outstanding day.

[Economics wit’ B0B]

I have spent a long ass time studying the ways humans turn tools into modes, modes into institutions, institutions into people of incredible power, and life into an empty gray hallway of needless strife and extra effort for negative gain . It’s almost funny, except for the part where i have to live here with you retards. Here’s something to grok about economics.

The word “economics” stems from “eco”, which is “that which is without/external” from which “ecology” also stems. Ecology is the study of this environment, and the study of human interactions and relations with it would be something like “ecophylology”. “-Nomics” indicates verbal modeling, description, naming; but NOT study. No Logos here, just taxonomy. If one wanted to study interactions based on quanta, one would use the lowest common unit in the systems observed; this is a unit of energy known as an erg. Hence, “Ergonomics” or “human factors”, which is like applied physics and engineering with a harm-reduction/efficiency maximizing spin. The erg has been quantifiable for a long time, and has been used as the base measure for Labor Value Theories quite effectively. When you think about it, talking about human production systems in terms of money and quarterly reports is rather like using shiny rocks as the unit in which all studies of birds shall be expressed; it’s drawing an abstraction from a symbolic tool and calling the model done rather than, you know, actually observing stuff.

Oh, and it’s not “fee-aht” currency; that’s a grouse. Good one too, the whole tax-value thing. No, no; it’s “fae-yaht” which means “agreed price – market value”.

Lain Says You Should Come Here: Alienation Therapy

My fave Anime Princess, Eve, has allowed a certain user (who is not a pimecone, BTW) to fill the Elfin Lied hole with a timely tale of social networks and connectivity.

Serial Experiments 12

We were looking at the basics of formal modern democratic thought, and had basically reduced the malignant Authortarian toxic meme-mimic of Natural Law to a simple set of truisms based on observable natural history. What we’re left with is not a Social Contract, a mysterious extra-legislative all-empowering and perpetually binding pre-natal “agreement” suspiciously familiar in tone and effect, but a simple nexus state from which to chart development.

Toxic Mimics

Toxic Originals

It is the nature of life systems to evolve, as opposed to being intentionally constructed. Few branches of hard science even bother to attempt a divination of inception for traces of artiface, linguistics being a notable exception. Social science loses it’s footing as science immediately when it assumes a priori that the institutions and methodologies of hierarchical social ordering apparent in such wide diversity across almost all human cultures are intentional and architectured via Social Contracting.

This is one of the many reasons that sociologists and statisticians sit at the table with the broken leg in the Faculty Dining Commons, while historians and NeoMarxian PolyEconomicists sit with the computer science and anthropology people. It does not explain why the historians occassionally huck ketchup cups at them, nor does it shed light on why all involved will blame the physicists for acts of food violence; but you digress.

Please, try to stay on message.

The alienation of humans from the basic aspects of what they as a society and as individuals actually are has accelerated in recent years, at least on the apparent level. It’s noticable by the most casual observer; and i highly suggest you try this little experiment.

First, think about the last time you walked around the neighborhood in which you live. Not as exercise; no, just to walk around the block, even better a 2-block radius. How many people live within that area? How many do you know? How many do you talk to?

Now go take that walk. Women should of course wait until daylight, or go with a freind/razor knife. If you see somebody, say “Hi”. If you don’t know them, introduce yourself as a neighbor.

Just do it. Then we’ll talk about comunitee.

The Invisible Hand Returns

I didn’t mean to leave allzy’all hanging, but i’ve been deleriously tracking the Intelligent Agent as She (or Her proxy) steadfastly avoids the temptation of waving a fist o’er the Corpus Delecti of the US body just to see if it can still twitch. Then i am reminded by a Yankee of The Simple Genius of Dissorganization. I laugh, with the wise silence of the sky unechoing me. A bird flys into a window.

PermaKulturae With 8rf

From the East rises an ir’e mind molded in calmingly furious resolve against the bitter vanity of violent conflict; molded so by a flesh informed of war. Anon! Anon, muthafuckers! Tend to your plots, they are naught but easements for primroses; they could be Victory Gardens in the Classless War against disposable communitee. They could be Sustainable.

Best not to say too much more of this. It’s not a movement with a T-shirt anyway, so why would anyone poke into it? Even Che had design sense. This bullocks about local micropermaculture and the individual smacks of the same old tired “DIY” democracy-via-personal-investment i always throw out to cock-block PBS liberalism and it’s hysterically shock-frozen partner in inaction, Paranoicism.

Change will come, one way or another. Either we will all rest together at day’s end, proud and satisfied after reintegrating our shattered and alienated world into a sustainable system of systems; or we will be mulch ourselves, feeding our new deserts blood and sweat until our bones bleach out and crumble like dry snowflakes dancing on the Sirhocco.
