While it doesn't surprise me that Disney, a company that was once famous for paying foreign workers twenty five cents an hour back when their CEO was making over $90K an hour has, in more recent years, launched a massive PR campaign to paint themselves as an icon of modern, progressive values while not changing their diabolical business practices in the least.

What does surprise me is that anyone actually falls for it.

Oh look at us, says Disney, we're all big on filling our movies with minorities and strong female characters! We even unofficially endorse gay pride celebrations at our theme parks! We're so modern, we're so progressive! Just pay no attention the monster behind the curtain.

"In the paper that we were looking at the discourse that precedes genocide and genocidal states, the enhancement of a sense of victimization on the part of one of the groups, is usually the group that’s going to commit the genocide. First of all, their sense of being victims is much heightened by the demagogues who are trying to stir up this sort of hatred. So they basically say, ‘Look, you’ve been oppressed in a variety of ways and these are the people who did it, and they’re not going to stop doing it, and this time we’re going to get them before they get us,’ It’s something like that. And so there is something very pathological about the enhancement of victimization.” - Jordan Peterson.


Both the red-capped inbred rednecks and the tonsure-haired art school girls - really not that different after all once you strip away all their bullshit.

A black hole, or singularity as it is more properly known, is functionally little more than an empty pit of pure annihilation that exists only to devour and destroy everything around it with its insatiable hunger that, like the wendigo, only grows hungrier the more it consumes.

At the center of the galaxy lays a super-massive black hole, and everything else - all the stars, planets, comets, and even our own fragile life bearing mote of dust - exists in perpetual orbit around this vast well of death.

And every day, across that mote, billions of tiny humans go forth to produce wealth that will mostly be reaped by a tiny minority that produces nothing of value in return. Yet their all their lives are forever trapped in orbit around these tiny black holes who see themselves as the center of their own little universes.

The silver lining

You may or may not remember many posts ago where I pointed out that if anything good was to come out of Trump getting into the Oval Office it was this: Someone who was not part of the status-quo actually managing to win an election would eventually inspire other non-status-quo people to run as well, because now they realize that they actually have a chance of winning after all.

Well, eventually was sooner than we thought, wasn't it? Because now we've got Cortez in congress - the youngest woman to ever be elected to that post and unabashedly leftist, along with an openly bisexual woman also in congress and our first Muslim congresswoman, as well. In other words, not your typical status-quo Democrats.

And also the kind of people who probably wouldn't have won, or even bothered running for office, if Clinton had won back in 2016. Why? Because she was the Democratic status-quo candidate just like Romney was the Republican status-quo candidate. Both represented safe, easily digestible, by-the-book examples of their respective parties that would say nice things and change absolutely nothing. These radicals, oh dear, they just rock the boat too much, don't you know?

Yet once that giant turd managed to shove his way in there the door was opened on the other side, as well. Now we're seeing what looks like real Democrats running & winning for the first time since the fucking Carter administration - and it's about goddamn time.

Yes, it sucks that it took something like Trump to galvanize their brains into remembering what they're supposed to be, but hey, it least it finally happened. Now all they have to do is outlast him (should be easy enough) and maybe we'll actually see some real, positive change at long last - instead of just the empty talk of it we've been getting up until now.

Never set out to solve the mysteries of life, because you just might succeed. What's left?

Spent the entire last day laying in bed, sick. Only awoken by the sound of Erik's apocalyptic snoring from the room next door. Checked news, bored. Checked comedy sites, bored. Booted up a game and then closed it before it was even done loading.

I can't find any meaning to anything, anymore. The difference, here, between me saying that and your typical poetry-twerp hipster is that I'm not trying to sound cool and I really wish that I could find inspiration in something, or some sense or purpose at least.

Then again that might just be the sickness talking. All I want to do is go back to bed, even though that's where I've spent the last 24 hours or so and everything is sore because of it. Sleep would also be nice, if I could block out the chainsaw next door.

The product is you.
