Protect the system they voted against.
Why the fuck is everyone whining about one dude so much?
There is a system.
On January Day when he will have the most awesome egogasm in his life, he’ll also enter the biggest BDSM relationship with the system that keeps the whole US joint working. And the system is the raddest dom you’ll ever meet. Oh, how the system will squeeze that orange.
It is very hard to undo a system put in place by hundreds of years of aristocratic pyramid building. The only way is to effectively terminate the human web of relationships that actually holds in place the country game.
Hitler did it. He killed them all in the night of the long knives.
Stalin did it. He killed them all in the great purge and the smaller purge after for the exclusive society of those with loyalty ties.
That’s how it works. You cannot do it with words or by being an asshole. You need a shitload of determination and the force of armed partisans who somehow believe they’re doing the right thing.
Does the US have enough people with extreme beliefs, people infiltrated in high power structures and also people common in profile but high in numbers? Hardly so. Is there a true revolutionary spirit among Trump’s voters? Not really. It is a lot of ressentiment. A lot of resentment.
Anti-system vote? Protect the system they voted against!
(T)he problem with the other origin of the “good,” of the good man, as the person of ressentiment has thought it out for himself, demands some conclusion. It is not surprising that the lambs should bear a grudge against the great birds of prey, but that is no reason for blaming the great birds of prey for taking the little lambs. And when the lambs say among themselves, “These birds of prey are evil, and he who least resembles a bird of prey, who is rather its opposite, a lamb, — should he not be good?” then there is nothing to carp with in this ideal’s establishment, though the birds of prey may regard it a little mockingly, and maybe say to themselves, “We bear no grudge against them, these good lambs, we even love them: nothing is tastier than a tender lamb.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morality, oh yea baby Wikipedia philosophy, so? Sue me!
This is how we humans work. It is nothing shameful or wrong to be infuriated that someone votes for a notorious asshole like Trump, just as it is nothing shameful or wrong to be infuriated that someone invites Syrian refugees without blinking to live next door to you. Both matters are complex. And the intelligent human is intelligent exactly for internalizing fury and anger and envy and disgust and fear and sublimating them creatively somehow.
In the creative output of the combined frustration of people holding any or all of: racist beliefs, strong religious convictions, low knowledge of how the world functions, poverty inflicted pain, disbelief in the upcoming future, Trump is the core metaphor, a rich asshole, a big worded demagogue, a morally bankrupt caricature of the oppressors: by voting Trump they merely expressed their oh so soothing conclusion that it is they who must be good and right, and why not saint.
If we continue to keep the accusatory finger extended, they’ll eventually byte it off. No manners for the fearing lamb.
Oh, you may say, they don’t have the right to feel this way. Well this is not how it works. All humans feel like humans. Weapons changing hands only shifts tides but doesn’t end wars. The day the whites in the US will really be the minority is a day to prepare for. If we get there.
If you feel targeted by Trump’s idiotic hate campaign or the alt right’s shitty brain diarrhea: fear for your safety. It makes you pay attention. Other people in history (see German Jews or British politicians of pre WW2) were not hysterical that assholes suddenly ran the world, they had noble attitudes. They lost or died or both.
But investing the Donald with apocalyptic power is a bad idea.
Start laughing and keep tight rows.
I am one of conflicting beliefs. For example, I think that the right to bear arm which the US constitution grants is good and it should be very, very, very carefully amended, because an armed population is hard to be taken over by governing sociopaths, unlike all of Europe and so many other countries of the world. In my country if a Trump ascends on a wave of popular support we stand no chance of defending democracy, in the true visceral sense of the word “defending”. We can only either bow our heads or have them chopped off.
The polish people learned this. They are working towards a more prepared population. They have their reasons too.
There is a system. Pay attention to the system. Take control of the system and keep control of the system. That is what the civil society does. The executive government should only use the system. If this remains and all minorities, future majorities, the marginalized and the not ignorant disenfranchised unite in a strong civil society, the Donald will only quack.
Watch the laws. Keep close to your representatives. Picket. Organize and mingle among the ones that are now celebrating. Everyone who had the courage and inner resistance to read Breitbart and watch videos of folks “exposing” the PC conspiracy on Youtube, everyone who was liberal but not ignorant knew inside that there was a real chance for Trump.
But the ignorant liberal is locked into their moral supremacy. Will we have an atheist scientist soon to discover the moral gene as the selfish gene who stepped on the right side of history? I wouldn’t be surprised, the market for self congratulatory idea syrup is huge, a best seller for sure. Locked in the moral supremacy of their so right beliefs and justified anger and ancestral smirk of resistance, people will be charmed by themselves and forget to pay attention.
The system is what matters, not the puppets we vote.
We all must know that it is just a system. A convention among us the humans, which is also changeable by us humans too. All we need is persistence. Stop being afraid to be afraid, face the cold and the anxiety of the fleeting life. Be active and involved. If not for you then for your children. If you have no children, than for other people’s children. If that ain’t doing it for you then do it because you’re being suckered into oblivion everyday, every day.
The wave of disgruntlement makes people tired. The impulses of moving to another country are exhausting. The planning to flee and the void that remains drain you before you take the first step to that airplane. All these liberals who now want to move into Canada are not very different than the openly trump supporter Peter Thiel and his floating cities for the special humans. He wants to emigrate too, but into his own special floating city.
Our exhaustion is their strength. These people who make up the system and who control what’s in our plate each day, these people are powerful because we let them control each day of our lives. The number of hours in traffic jams, the hour you wake up every day, the chances you stand in the ER or the quality of the school your child will go to.
They have the power to decide in your place if the country goes to war, if food is a right or an obligation, if the water should be just as clean for everybody or if the sun falling on your skin should be taxed or not. Don’t be fooled. Almost nothing of that sanctified property you own is actually yours.
The system. The system owns everything. The system will replace you both at work and in life.
This is not a conspiracy. There are people who hold office for decades in a row now. If you are part of the system don’t be scared or ashamed. We the people want you to do good and be noble towards our humanity, that’s all. We don’t want you to quit, to concede, to make pacts, to fraternize with stray folk, to settle on surviving. We want you to keep the game alive in our terms, the terms of a game both for the people and by the people.
Look at this, just look at this:
The chart starts at 52 mil. So watch out for the misled belief that Dem turnout halved. It didn’t. It simply shows that it is HRC’s campaign that demobilized not DT’s that mobilized.
This is the result of the ivory tower class of moral supremacy caste exercising their power of idea congestion upon the human society of a country. It makes people quit.
Folks, it is not the donald who will put the foot in your door and ask for your immigrant papers. It is not the donald that will enforce mandatory religious ceremonies for aborted pregnancies. It is not the donald who will allow Russia to stretch and catch vigor again. The donald is merely a seventy year old member of the orange race.
Donald Trump won’t do squat. Stop this orange supremacy fear mongering. It is we who will be placid or reactive, active or dormant, involved or disconnected, tired or enraged, smug or engaged.
