You Don’t Get It

Posted in Uncategorized by bigsleytheoaf on October 23, 2011

You don’t get that you don’t believe your beliefs. You are devoted to them.

What do you think about Wall Street? About pedophilia? Murder? Torture? Genocide? Selfishness? Hatred? Rape? Do these things make you sick?

Tomatoes used to make me sick.

You don’t get that your beliefs are nothing but historical accumulation. Even if you believe these words, you don’t believe them deeply.

Your ethics, your metaphysics, your epistemology, your aesthetics – all inherited. Seriously – in what moment of infinite hubris could you ever think that anything you believe could possibly have been conceived by you?

You don’t believe this deeply because – how could you? You’re defending it all, right now.

See, you don’t believe things passively. You fight for your beliefs. Any time a conflicting belief presents itself, you start inarticulately flailing.

How could murder not be wrong?

How could rape not be wrong?

Are you even going to consider it? Are you going to actually open up and accept that all things that happen happen? They actually happen. They really happen. They’re not evil or wrong, they just happen. Murder happens. Death happens. Rape happens. It just happens.

No, seriously, it just happens. It just happens. It doesn’t happen because something is Fucked. It doesn’t happen because the universe is somehow wrong or broken, or society is broken, or anything is broken. It. Just. Fucking. Happens.

Mankind loves to carry its trauma. Let it go.

I am inarticulate. I am not getting across what I want to. I don’t give a fuck!

Look! You can’t keep pretending that it makes sense that you believe what you believe. At least give me that. You just believe it. It just so happens that you believe it. It’s not wrong or right, it’s just the case. But it’s stuck and it’s boring, so stop it!

I’m stuck on this anarchist shit. I used to be libertarian. Like, what would happen if we just removed all economic restrictions? If we stopped all government programs? Would it really be that bad? Now I’m thinking more along the lines of: could we stop punishing murder, governmentally? Has humanity progressed enough?

And if not, why the fuck not!?! Who wants to murder? Are we so brutish?

Let’s get there!

This is my point! We should seek to legalize murder!

Why do we consider it a big win to erase? Murder exists! We can punish it. We can lock up murders. But we have not destroyed murder.

If we destroyed murder then we could legalize it. N’est pas? So why aren’t we trying to annihilate murder?

It’s boring. We sit around humming to ourselves until something annoys us. Then we squish it, or put it in a cage, instead of destroying the root, instead of accepting it, instead of I don’t know what!

It’s just so boring! How can you possibly hate murder or murderers?

Sometimes I think that society is progressing towards tolerance of murder. It’s a weird thought, but if you look at our media, there’s a lot of murder porn going on. Our video games are all designed around murder. You shoot people in the head in our video games – and they die.

Does anyone really think murder is so bad, anymore?

But what we hate is when a group murders. Genocide – now that’s sick! But killing one guy – whatever! I did that last night – virtually yes.

When the fuck are the genocide videogames going to come out?

Rant!!! ran!!!t! rant!!!! rant!

    I own this game where you control Pol Pot. Every button executes 1,000 people. After 30 minutes the remaining citizens (if you left any alive) stage a parade in your honor. After an hour the game breaks the fourth wall and prepares a banquet in your kitchen using the human remains as protein (you need to buy the version 1.05 patch for this to work).
