left:
some people are strong, some people are weak, society is best when the strong support the weak.


right:
some people are strong, some people are weak, society is best when you let the strong do whatever they want.

reality:
some people are strong, some people are weak, the strong do what they want regardless of society's best interests.

FIFY

Strong/weak seems like an odd way of looking at it tbh. Rich/poor might be closer to the mark, if it's got to be a dichotomy.

The rich aren't rich because they're more powerful, they're  rich because they're descended from the rich.

Especially since wealth tends to make you weaker, and reliant upon the strong for protection against the numerous and poor

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

It's funny because the strong usually end up realising the rich are dependent upon them, seizing their wealth and becoming the new rich. Until the new strong do the same unto them in the future

What will we do when money becomes not needed? Right now our economy is based on humans working to receive money to buy what they need/want. When machines do work instead, how will humans get the money to get what they need?

Planned obsolescence for us. We'll become useless but as a low grade lubricant source for our new machine overlords.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

We'll obviate the need for work and grant life artificial meaning by placing hooking up people's brains to an Matrix-like alternate reality game. In this game, people are arbitrarily mortal, have arbitrary ethical values to uphold, and have to survive by compromising those values by selling their precious time and efforts working dismal jobs for their whole lives and... fuck we're in it right now aren't we?

I have no recollection of writing this. I slept approximately 16 hours. I had a frightening manic episode and I'm kind of glad nothing happened that's irreversible.


The distinction between left and right I wrote is what they are aspirationallly. Left says society is strongest when the strong help the weak. Right says society is strongest when you don't hinder the best adapted.

dragdeler is pointing out that Baal every single times conflates authoritarianism with The Left. And that is a bad take.

Thanks that is more comprehensible.

Another thing that shouldn't be conflated is left wing aspirations with leftyism as defined by the unabomber. Also just because someone is nominally left doesn't mean they aren't just a filthy carreer politician.


Anyways sorry Baal I wasn't myself.

True, it had to be taught through the two troughs too, though the thoughts it threw out, were tough and thorough throughout.

Drag, what's life without a couple of maniac attacks here and there... seriously don't worry my good friend, in fact I know my rants can get tiresome
