POSTMODERNISM AND THE GIAN GASTONE DE MEDICI CODA
30 November 2021
In a postmodern-neoliberal corporate society that's increasingly inoculated against outlier rebels and individual genius, science itself is downgraded to mere data collection for the orthodox consensus, trapped in the straitjacket of layer after layer of credential gatekeeping. Creativity becomes subordinated to a perpetual cycle of repetitive ephemera slavishly following the…
NO MORE HEROES IN FOREVER CULTURE WAR
4 November 2021
Winston Smith, in Orwell’s 1984, wrote “if there was hope, it must lie in the proles” but this is wrong. Cultural renaissance – revitalisation of genuine diversity liberalism including the essential respect for disruptive genius – will only come from a critical mass of educated, competent individuals with something to…
WHY I CAN’T BE PATRIOTIC… BUT IT’S NOT AS SIMPLE AS THAT
30 October 2021
It's easy to make allowances for a nation ostensibly founded (or founding) principles like freedom of expression, fundamental rights of personhood and property, rule of law, access to education, healthcare, social security and safety from the violence of despotism (home and abroad). It would be churlish to be ungrateful for…
STAR WARS, NATIVE GHOST DANCING, HAPPY MEALS – NONE OF THESE ARE CULTURE
16 October 2021
There is nothing especially wrong with Star Wars. In fact, there's nothing wrong with any of the pop-movie genres, same as there's nothing wrong with Marvel comics or daytime soap operas or MMORPGs or tabloid media or pan-piping Peruvians or fast food chains or city-transient sports franchises or any other…
PATRICIAN JUDICIAL PRIVILEGE AND OTHER BASTARDS
2 October 2021
Nobody in the public conversation about #BLM police brutality seems to have understood it's the court system that's set up to brutalize the black, brown and working class and it's the unaccountable patrician judiciary that's been driving the corruption engine for decades. The prison Industrial complex with its well-documented disproportionate…

Award-winning veteran reporter and Pulitzer Prize-nominated newspaper columnist — Marc Munroe Dion is an old-school newsman who fell out of a Frank Capra movie, complete with pipe and fedora.

His long-running WSAR radio show was closed down in May 2021 and he was forced out of the Herald, moving to the Falls River Reporter in 2018. First column: "Maybe It's Us".

David Solomon

D.J. who moonlights as a titan of Wall Street, David Solomon is a crossover media-finance bullshit artist. Under him, Goldman Sachs - the investment bank - has tried to shed its uptight image as a haven for besuited M.&A. bankers and chest-thumping traders. That effort now includes its own typeface. Meet Goldman Sans. The firm describes the font, which is free to download, as “approachable without being whimsical” and “neutral, with a wink.” It was created for Goldman Sachs by the British design firm Dalton Maag, with a mandate to create a typeface with just the right amount of personality for the 151-year-old bank.

It follows other efforts by Goldman to come across as cool, including relaxing its dress code, pitching itself as a tech company and collaborating with Apple on a credit card. The reaction from experts is, shall we say, mixed. They are on record saying that it suffered from “lack of courage,” was “missing life” and was the typographical equivalent of “a casual Friday.”

Turns out he's got a lot of AMC stock and he's short on it!

Paul Ryan

The former House speaker Paul Ryan is reportedly preparing to launch a special purpose acquisition company, The Wall Street Journal reports. The investment fund is aiming to raise $300 million in an I.P.O., with Mr. Ryan, who left Congress last year, as chairman. He’s not the only famous face joining the SPAC boom. Figures from financiers like Bill Ackman, Dan Loeb and Michael Klein to the famed baseball executive Billy Beane have launched versions of these “blank check” investment vehicles. They have been buoyed by strong equity markets and private companies’ desire to sidestep the traditionally laborious I.P.O. process by merging with these funds, assuming their stock listings.

This SPAC is notable for its Republican ties. In addition to Mr. Ryan’s involvement, the fund’s sponsor is Solamere Capital, an investment firm run by a son of Senator Mitt Romney, who picked Mr. Ryan as his running mate in his 2012 presidential bid. But its financial adviser has strong Democratic leanings. Mr. Ryan’s SPAC is being underwritten by Evercore, whose founder and senior chairman is Roger Altman, who served in the Carter and Clinton administrations and is a major fund-raiser for Joe Biden.

Evercore has been strengthening its SPAC expertise, hiring Neil Shah, a specialist in these funds, from Citi last year. The bank has also emphasized its capital-markets business of late: Executives told analysts last month that the firm was coming off its “strongest period ever in equity underwriting.”

Stanley A McChrystal

Four star American Army general and entrenched neoliberal character actor, Stanley A McChrystal was a prime mover in the enrichment detail of the Military Industrial Complex during the Obama Presidency. As is the norm, his retirement from the military led to a series of appointments in business and heading up various fronts for deep state interests. Corporate boards, consulting, speaking fees: How U.S. generals thrived after Afghanistan is a useful article on Stanley McChrystal exemplifying how ex-generals sell their battlefield experience in other arenas, from corporations to Covid-19 response grifting.

aphorisms

All | N S W
There are currently 3 aphorisms in this directory
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

Spoken in the House of Commons (18-Nov-1783). Based on the original lines in John Milton's Paradise Lost (Book IV, Line 393): "And with necessity, / The tyrant's plea, / excus'd his devilish deeds"

Scapegoating according to Girard.
Whereas the philosophers of the 18th century would have agreed that communal violence comes to an end due to a social contract, Girard believes that, paradoxically, the problem of violence is frequently solved with a lesser dose of violence. When mimetic rivalries accumulate, tensions grow ever greater. But, that tension eventually reaches a paroxysm. When violence is at the point of threatening the existence of the community, very frequently a bizarre psychosocial mechanism arises: communal violence is all of the sudden projected upon a single individual. Thus, people that were formerly struggling, now unite efforts against someone chosen as a scapegoat. Former enemies now become friends, as they communally participate in the execution of violence against a specified enemy. Girard calls this process scapegoating - an allusion to the ancient religious ritual where communal sins were metaphorically imposed upon a he-goat, and this beast was eventually abandoned in the desert, or sacrificed to the gods (in the Hebrew Bible, this is especially prescribed in Leviticus 16). The person that receives the communal violence is a ‘scapegoat’ in this sense: her death or expulsion is useful as a regeneration of communal peace and restoration of relationships. However, Girard considers it crucial that this process be unconscious in order to work. The victim must never be recognized as an innocent scapegoat (indeed, Girard considers that, prior to the rise of Christianity, ‘innocent scapegoat’ was virtually an oxymoron; see section 4.b below); rather, the victim must be thought of as a monstrous creature that transgressed some prohibition and deserved to be punished. In such a manner, the community deceives itself into believing that the victim is the culprit of the communal crisis, and that the elimination of the victim will eventually restore peace.
What are the true root motives of the US Conservative movement?

It's important to understand the motives of a Conservative movement versus what are the tools a Conservative movement may be using to get to where they want to be. Solely on root motivations, some will say: Conservatives at the very top, they're racist, they're anti black, they're anti semitic. They want an all white world And so that's what the objective is. And a current tool they happen to be using is voter suppression. Motivated by racism. Not wanting to raise the minimum wage, motivated by racism. Everything in American Conservative ideology is motivated by racism. And there's another camp that will say: We live in an oligarchy, people are very driven to protect elite financial interests. And since the dawn of America, race has been weaponized. It's an underclass signifier even when it's no longer a cheap economic engine (slavery, etc). To protect and perpetuate elite power, we will exploit factions that emerge along racial lines, we will create and teach people to Balkanize themselves in these ways and others. All in order to prevent them from noticing (and resisting) the ways that they're being exploited economically.
