Immer Irgendwas

du
magst meine witze oder findest mich klug du
schätzt meine ehrlichkeit oder meinen mut aber
wenn dann das "aber" kommt hab' ich schon meinen Hut in deinem
Ratschlag komm' ich nicht vor es projezierst nur du - ent-
weder soll ich kuschen oder zwei Gesichter haben - nicht
"alles ernst nehm'n" auch mal debil drüber lachen 'n bißchen
krummer 'n bißchen kleiner ist ja wirklich gut gemeint - wie
dich gab es schon viele und auch dir sag' ich nein - ist

schön dass du mich gern hast doch mich kennst du nicht - sobald du
deinen horizont zu meinem knast machst - flennst du Gift -
- das mich nicht trifft - und das mich nicht rührt dass du nicht
siehst wie du mich würgst verdirbt die Lust - zum Diskutier'n
- der Freund der ich mir bin der solltest du dir sein statt mal zu
höhnen mal zu mauscheln und dann doch wieder zu schleim'n - statt
- normal zu sprechen soll ich deine Lücken decken soll dein
Alibi sein - dein kuschlig-hilfreiches Versteck

draußen verrecken - g'rade in dieser Sekunde - x
Menschen an nix und noch mehr geh'n vor die Hunde - so-
lange du nicht heißer glühst und kühler denkst als ich kannst du
dir 'ne Nummer ziehen doch erzähl'n kannst du mir nichts - die
feigen Massenmörder denen du die Zeit zuspielst - die
trauen sich ja auch nicht also weiß ich nicht was du willst
guck' den Hampelmännern zu buckel' oder lass' es sein doch
spuck' mir nicht - in den Bart und tu' als ob es schneit

[part 2]

wenn's schon nicht
deine Schuld ist dass dein Wille leider Wille nicht genug war um als
*ein* Mensch hervorzugeh'n aus dem Kindheitsblutbad
- was kann dann ich dafür - warum soll ich's leiden? in der
freien Wildbahn kann ich dich davon nicht heilen
- es bräuchte neun auf ein'n nicht ein'n auf neun - doch auch
9 Milliarden - können mich nicht beugen - was
Hänschen durchschaut brauchst du Hans nicht erzähl'n selbst dein
lautestes Lachen wirkt auch mich noch gequält -

du und deine Chefs Mittelfinger setzen sechs ich hab mit
acht schon gecheckt was du mit achtzig noch verdeckst - deine
ganze Crew fletscht ihre kleinen braunen Stummel ich seh'
eure Anpassung - nicht euren krausen Fummel jeder
Club ist gleich jeder Stamm - ist der selbe Scheiß - ein
Pakt von Idiot'n_die auch zusammen nichts reißen - doch sich
Ausreden liefern - Titel verleih'n habt ihr nur
das im Gehirn - passt schon nichts and'res mehr rein


wär' ich
weniger gewitzt wär' ich weniger charmant gäb' es
diesen Text nicht denn ich wär' längst überrannt

[wär' ich
statt wo ich sitz' in so manchem ander'n Land gäb' es
diesen Text nicht denn ich wär' längst an der Wand]

die
Welt trieft vor Spuren voll mit Fossilien - Ge-
schehnisse vertuscht damit dass es ja so viele sind
so wie ihr auch sagt was ihr tut tun doch alle dieses
nachgekaute denkfaule ewige Gelalle was
du Fortschritt nennst sind Esel die trotten nix als
Angst vor Schlägen und Hunger auf Karotten

And what hurts is the steadily diminishing humanity of those fighting to hold jobs they don't want but fear the alternative worse. People simply empty out. They are bodies with fearful and obedient minds. The color leaves the eye. The voice becomes ugly. And the body. The hair. The fingernails. The shoes. Everything does.

Notice the American focus on individuals and figureheads, single people who you can attack and onto which you can offload your problems. Couple this with partisan feuding which is being fuelled and is causing the left-right divide to grow even more rapidly, you end up with precisely this: Americans bickering and engaged in vitriolic argumentation over whose side is better, without the key issues ever being addressed. Without stopping and thinking about holding your country to account/doing anything about it.

That is the manipulation. And the deception is as you say, those old/young, left/right, tacitly sold on the lie that this perpetual state of war is somehow necessary and driven by anything but your country's massive military industrial complex. A complex which most Americans I've seen don't even deny, but at best shrug/laugh off as "haha, maybe we're the bad guys" but internally justifying and convincing themselves otherwise.

And because of the "us vs them" dichotomy that you've been fed, that internal justification is automatic when thinking about any situation involving America and the Middle East: "are we the bad guys? Well it's us vs them, and they're the bad guys so no, we're the good guys".

And it's that that I believe has lead to your current physical inability to empathise with the killing of innocent human beings in the Middle East. Not tiredness or burnout; just "us vs them".

The fanatical exultation of American troops is, at its root, a refusal of Americans to accept all the horror they do is the citizen's fault. It's a refusal to actually break down and cry and feel bad that the American lifestyle and comfort has a cost of human lives and misery.

lovely.

A study led by Sergei Petrovskii, Professor in Applied Mathematics from the University of Leicester's Department of Mathematics, has shown that an increase in the water temperature of the world's oceans of around six degrees Celsius -- which some scientists predict could occur as soon as 2100 -- could stop oxygen production by phytoplankton by disrupting the process of photosynthesis.

Well, Americans
What, nothin' better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant too

Who's usin' who?
What should we do?
Well, you can't be a pimp
And a prostitute too

You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told)

by The White Stripes
(click to load video)

In some respects I suspect you've got a respectable side
When pushed and pulled and pressured, you still don't hide
But it's for someone else's benefit, not for what you wanna do
Until I realize that you've realized, I'm gonna say these words to you

Yeah, you don't know what love is, you do as you're told
Just as a child of ten might act, but you're far too old
You're not hopeless or helpless, and I hate to sound cold
But you don't know what love is, you just do as you're told

I can see a man can't help but win any problems that may arise
But in his mind there can be no sin if you never criticize
You just keep on repeating all those empty "I love yous"
Until you see you deserve better, I'm gonna lay right in to you

Yeah, you don't know what love is, you do as you're told
Just as a child of ten might act, but you're far too old
You're not hopeless or helpless, and I hate to sound cold
But you don't know what love is
No, you don't know what love is
No, you don't know what love is, you just do as you're told

Yeah, do as you're told
Yeah

Leni Dorkenstrull's propaganda

The aesthetics may not quite be Triumph of the Will material, but plenty of folk in the gaming and movie industry have the pathetic fucking whore part down pat.
This is the beginning of a list I'll never finish because fuck these people.

https://archive.org/details/msdos_ATAC_-_The_Secret_War_Against_Drugs_1992

Lead the secret war on illegal drugs in South America! Wage war against drug barons with advanced weaponry such as F-22 fighters and AH-64 helicopters. Destroy their drug pipeline to starve them of cash, but don't hit the civilians or you may get kicked out of the country! The drug lords won't stand by though... And they had used the drug money for an effective arsenal, from missiles to fighters and more. Gather intelligence, decide on strike targets, and launch planes to accomplish their missions. Take over any plane in flight if you think they need help. Send in DEA agents to gather more intelligence and resupply local rebels. Can you win the war? ATAC can be described as two games in one. On the strategic level, you need to figure out how the drug barons are forming their pipeline and the best way to destroy the pipeline while causing minimal damage to the civilian population, while defending your own base against intruders and attackers. You can order recon flights or gather intelligence from rebels and DEA agents on the ground.


https://archive.org/details/msdos_Conflict_in_Vietnam_1986

The third and final installment in Microprose's Command series of war games simulates five key battles in Vietnam, beginning with the defeat of the French colonial army in 1954 and culminating in the 1972 victory of the Viet Cong against South Vietnam forces. Conflict in Vietnam adapts the well tried "accelerated real-time" game system of its predecessors to the jungle combat situation in Indochina, with its bizarre balance of power, specific technology (such massive use of helicopters) and unique strategic challenges. Impressively complex for its time, the simulation calculates a day-night-cycle, weather, terrain, supply lines, formations, unit organization and experience, to name only the most important factors. Two players can compete head to head on one computer, soloists may randomize the enemy priorities in some scenarios for added uncertainty on the battlefield. Even more so than in the previous games, designer duo Sid Meier and Ed Bever stress the educational aspect of their well-researched historical simulation: the manual is designed as a complementary read that offers extensive background information to the five scenarios and their 'what if' variants.

nailed it.

Moreover, I'd like to have all the extremist argumentation slapped the fuck down by intellectuals in public. Given the way things are going however, it's as though transparency and public discussion were anathema to those with power to censor.

I mean, it can't possibly be that some jack-ass white supremacist, trash-ass ISIS goon, or wank-ass Hillary Trumponite, were hard to repudiate -- unless your own wack bullshit depends on similar constructions. Then it's really hard without stabbing yourself in the back.

we'll never peek our heads out of our own quagmire far enough to realize the depth of our tragedy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldwin_effect

So completely out of left field, I stumble across this sentence that I suspect will now haunt me forever:

the sustained behavior of a species or group can shape the evolution of that species

Keep it turned off, and there you go. Augmented reality anyone? Let's gamify the shit out of people, until they themselves are nothing but a thin client, a derpy blob without any inner or outer structure.

There's so many people who seem to think being captured and broken is where adult human life begins. Bullshit, it's where it ends. You got captured and broken, it doesn't matter who you love, what you cook, what languages you learn, where you travel, if your kids are healthy or managed to develop infectious cancer.

Another way to look at it is that many people don't want kids to get abused more than they were, but also not less. "I didn't get to develop a fully self-owned personality, why should anyone else?"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Article_9_of_the_Japanese_Constitution

In July 2014, Japan's government approved a reinterpretation of this article despite concerns and disapproval from mainland China and South Korea, although the United States supported the move. This reinterpretation would allow Japan to exercise the right of "collective self defense" and exercise military action if one of its allies were to be attacked. It is considered by some parties as illegitimate, posing a serious danger to Japan's democracy since the Prime Minister circumvented the constitutional amendment procedure, dictating a radical change to the meaning of fundamental principles in the Constitution by way of Cabinet fiat without Diet debate, vote, or public approval.

Ah, "mehr Krieg wagen". That's alright then.

We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.

Reagan

by Killer Mike
(click to load video)

[Sample: Ronald Reagan]
Our government has a firm policy not to capitulate to terrorist demands. That no-concessions policy remains in force, despite the wildly speculative and false stories about arms for hostages and alleged ransom payments, we did not, repeat, did not trade weapons or anything else for hostages, nor will we

[Verse 1]
The ballot or the bullet, some freedom or some bullshit
Will we ever do it big, or just keep settling for lil' shit?
We brag on having bread, but none of us are bakers
We all talk having greens, but none of us own acres
If none of us own acres, and none of us grow wheat
Then who will feed our people when our people need to eat
So it seems our people starve from lack of understanding
Cause all we seem to give them is some balling and some dancing
And some talking about our car and imaginary mansions
We should be indicted for bullshit we inciting
Hand the children death and pretend that it's exciting
We are advertisements for agony and pain
We exploit the youth, we tell them to join a gang
We tell them dope stories, introduce them to the game
Just like Oliver North introduced us to cocaine
In the 80's when the bricks came on military planes

[Sample: Ronald Reagan]
A few months ago I told the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not

[Verse 2]
The end of the Reagan Era, I'm like 'leven, twelve, or
Old enough to understand the shit'll change forever
They declared the war on drugs like a war on terror
But what it really did was let the police terrorize whoever
But mostly black boys, but they would call us "niggers"
And lay us on our belly, while they fingers on they triggers
They boots was on our head, they dogs was on our crotches
And they would beat us up if we had diamonds on our watches
And they would take our drugs and money, as they pick our pockets
I guess that that's the privilege of policing for some profit
But thanks to Reaganomics, prisons turned to profits
Cause free labor is the cornerstone of US economics
Cause slavery was abolished, unless you are in prison
You think I am bullshitting, then read the 13th Amendment
Involuntary servitude and slavery it prohibits
That's why they giving drug offenders time in double digits
Ronald Reagan was an actor, not at all a factor
Just an employee of the country's real masters
Just like the Bushes, Clinton and Obama
Just another talking head telling lies on teleprompters
If you don't believe the theory, then argue with this logic
Why did Reagan and Obama both go after Qaddafi
We invaded sovereign soil, going after oil
Taking countries is a hobby paid for by the oil lobby
Same as in Iraq, and Afghanistan
And Ahmadinejad say they coming for Iran
They only love the rich, and how they loathe the poor
If I say any more they might be at my door
(Shh..) Who the fuck is that staring in my window
Doing that surveillance on Mr. Michael Render
I'm dropping off the grid before they pump the lead
I leave you with four words: I'm glad Reagan dead

[Outro]
