comes an angry honest straight shootin guy .....
"the best, perhaps the only, way to waste a vote is to cast it for the purported lesser evil,
the drone-besotted corporate flunky who has made it all but impossible even to speak without derision of “hope” or “change.”
my my let us delve :
" . cheerleaders for Obama. ... have so little to cheer, they fear monger shamelessly — making much, perhaps too much, of Republican idiocy....it is also diversionary..... it frees (Dembocrats) up to toady to the capitalists whose hearts and minds they yearn, in vain, to win over."
whoops .....toady in vain ??
now that is categorically misleading eh ?
the ohbummer wing of the party was fucking BUILT by corporate sponsors
ahh but in the spirit of gracious open mindedness and a dull 100 degree noon time out there
let us pass on jet thru this tinsel talk and ....unleash ... Herr Marcuse !
errr in paraphrase
"despite a comparative absence of overt repression, “critical” thinking, counter-systemic thinking opposed to the established order is if anything, even less evident in liberal democracies than in societies where speech and other forms of expression are
subject to government suppression and control."
i'm nodding off then it hits me paine try for once to enter into the magic
of these cheap hegelian card tricks:
feature this :
suppression and tolerence are interpenetrating
and in the limitless dynamic of history
comes a conjuncture where opposites join forces
"where repressive tolerance reigns"
now call it..... AMERIKA
where "... anybody can say anything, but it doesn’t matter; critical thought is effectively neutered....Tolerance... renders criticism impotent."
but that's not the topic so here now we experience a shrewdly conceived parallel:
" it bears reflection whether, in our circumstances, democracy,
or at least the electoral system that captures
a large part of what we nowadays mean by that word,
can work to the detriment of democratic ideals,
whether like tolerence democracy too
can function repressively (or, more precisely anti-democratically)."
democracy becomes antidemocracy
"......our's is indeed a repressive democracy, and our electoral system
...... has become a means for keeping an oppressive status quo in place."
okay so where to next big fella ?oh God ..here it drops
the final bird turd
..go read it yourself
yup he said it
instead of applying lesser evilism to the gaping sore in washington ....
our hero recommends
we all vote our conscience
or nearly so
"vote third party"
vote...... jill st john !!!
i stagger grow foggy ......
now five minutes and a bud lite later
comes over me
some peace of mind
on further consideration perhaps
instead of fulminating like the great glenn beck
i think i'll simply rework his column
here big pink footed teutonic meme cracker
oughta be yer zinger end line
not as is not as i led off with ....
change it to this :
"the best, perhaps the only, way to waste a vote is to cast it. "
end of contextualized wisdom
brothers and sisters
speak no more of this
oh ya and tell jill st john to stick her sanctimonious gren thumb up her ...
