My complaints about how destructive the world is. One day I'll change it, but public opinion needs to change, everything needs to change.

My political views are a form of Anarchism. I don't like to label the exact form because I don't completely agree with the main forms I've read (Syndicalism, Capitalism etc.)

My religious views are Secularist Agnosticism, I'll write about what that means soon. I'm sure you can understand what I mean by it though.

-All Roads Lead To Amber-

In every reader, there is one book, or story, that can transport the individual to a land far from reality, to places majestic, gruesome and all-encompassing. After such a journey, the time spent in absence from your mind, it can truly shake a person to their core, and even change their most base perceptions of veracity. For me this journey was taken on the thoroughfare laid by Roger Zelazny. in his ‘Chronicles of Amber’, published originally by The Science Fiction Book Club, and then republished by Doubleday.
  This story, perhaps the best example of First Person Narrative from modern American literature, revolves around a dysfunctional family, in the center of a great cosmic struggle between Pandemonium (The Courts of Chaos) and Stasis (Amber). The protagonist, Corwin of Amber, wakes up in a mental asylum in Northern America, with amnesia. He realizes that he’s been sedated illegally, and escapes the institute by blackmailing his doctor. Equipped with blackmail money, and an address for the individual who’s been backing his medical bill, supposedly his sister, Flora; he ventures forth into the world, unaware of his identity, even his name.
  He investigates the situation, and discovers he is one of Nine Princes of Amber, with the power to roam the ‘multiverse’ (Zelazny dubbed the distinct universes as Shadows, imperfect replicas of Amber, the only true ‘reality’.) and due to the infinite nature of Shadows, they technically have the ability to visit anywhere they have the will to imagine. The inspiration for such an idea obviously echoes The Everett Interpretation (The concept of splitting universes due to the randomness of the half-life of atoms, and so forth – the stuff of Schrödinger and his grisly cats) and indeed Zelazny makes scores of references to other pop-science phenomena.
  The Dialogue is crisp and minimalistic dialogue is somewhat reminiscent of famous Crime Authors such as Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett (Farewell, My Lovely and Red Harvest, respectively), yet with Shakespearean sounding content; this is a common theme in The Chronicles Of Amber, anachronism runs rampant, yet fluid. An example would be modern medical practice in a medieval environment, coupled with cigarette smoking. Although it is a chronological juxtaposition, he makes it work excellently and fluently.

Quote reblogged from liquidating the hand that feeds with 29 notes

State capitalism, socialism, communism, fascism, democracy… these are all livestock management approaches. Some work well for long periods… and some work very badly. They all fail eventually because it is immoral and irrational to treat human beings as livestock… Rulers have recognized that if they prevent you from fleeing the farm, you will become depressed, inert, and unproductive. A serf is the most productive when he imagines he is free. Thus your rulers must provide you the illusion of freedom in order to harvest you most effectively.

At this level, it’s not about shelter anymore. It’s about creating a property that reflects their success and their personality.

Property

Today, I broke into a house.  An impressively sized, obviously  ridiculously expensive mansion.  The most interesting part? It was empty.

This amazing house, far larger than anything I’ll ever be able to afford, lies empty and unused. It is simply wasting space, which no apparent purpose at all. It has been like this for nearly seven years.

It really is disgusting that people around the country can’t afford a room to sleep in, people that hide under bridges with stolen fires to keep warm… and there are empty mansions, carelessly thrown away after a messy divorce. What sort of society does this; forces the vast population into low class, cheap and sometimes dangerous houses, when there are amazing luxurious houses waiting to be lived in.

In fact, it’s just a way to keep the poor, poor and the rich, rich. The divide created by property is human’s basic and by far worst nature, it’s pathetic. Even more pathetic, if I was caught in there, doing no damage. In fact, I cleaned it up. If I was caught I would be arrested with trespassing… what an excellent society.

Part Two: Grind. Grind. Grind, Synthesizing intelligence.

N.B: This is the third post, Tumblr blogs are listed by newest posts first. I would advise reading this in a more linear fashion.


People in University courses doing high demand courses (They’re high demand because they end up with high paying jobs, it’s little concern if that’s what you’d do best to enhance society)  therefore they require more ‘points’, which should have the purpose of stopping idiots from becoming surgeons or teachers. But in reality all it’s become is a way of minimizing class sizes by putting in un-innovative people into the ranks of the elite (I’m aware uninnovative isn’t a word, but it should be)

What I mean by this, is to achieve these massively high grades in everything, you have to spend countless hours cramming useless facts into your mind. Regardless, no matter what any teacher will tell you, if your field doesn’t use the subject, than the only point to know these things is for trivia. Of course we do require basic knowledge of everything to a point. It is a simple fact, that if I become a primary teacher, lawyer or doctor, I will never find the need to map the area of a function on a graph. Never. And yet, I need to know how to do this to become any of those three things, I need to spend countless hours wasting my time learning this useless knowledge, that once I am actually studying for my job, I will definitely forget.

Regardless of how desperate our teachers are to impart this knowledge on us, we will forget it if we don’t use it. All of that time, wasted. For what desperately vital reason?

To lower class sizes.

And returning to my original point, where the uninnovation comes from is these people don’t care they’re wasting their time. All they want is to live a rich successful life, and they know if they want to do this than they must study nonsense they hate. When you ‘study’ for an exam, if you love it, it’s not ‘studying’, it’s research.  Therefore these people in high point classes, for the majority, have had any love of education stripped from them from their barbaric attempts to grind information into their brain. And it’s not knowledge, they don’t need to understand it, they just need to recite it.

It’s information.
