Mission Statement: To be a nexus, a cornerstone, between the lanes of indie culture and nerd culture. Up to date, informed, and an active participant in the existence of said cultures. In doing so, this is an area where expression is personal, genuine, and intimately a celebration of everything human. This is panacea. "The laws of the universe are not indifferent, but are forever on the side of the most sensitive. Listen to every zephyr for some reproof, for it is surely there, and he is unfortunate who does not hear it."

I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome. But the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations.

It is amazing to me that the conservative working class (especially the working poor) has been so captivated (and captured) by corporate America that they fight fang and claw to keep themselves on the bottom end of increasing economic disparity, and to make the wealthy, wealthier at the expense of worker.

In the 4th century BCE, Plato said that neither oligarchy nor democracy are suitable systems to bring about social justice. An Oligarchy—rule by the few and the wealthy—is unacceptable because the wealthy are only interested in their own appetites and will exploit the workers for gain. But Democracy will not lead to social justice either, because the public, by and large, is ignorant of the functions of government, and by that lack of information, they are easily misled by the emotional rhetoric of self-serving politicians.

Even back in Plato’s time, the two major political parties in Athens were the Oligarchs and the Liberals. The Oligarchs wanted precisely what conservative “leaders” want today—an oligarchy. The Liberals wanted all men to be equal and have equal voice—same as today.

The process of good propaganda is clear:

1. Demonize a word (such as “liberal”) by using it always in a negative sentence, preferably as emotion-generating as possible (falsehoods actually work better than truth). Give the word no quarter and never speak it in a positive sentence. Because of the constant demonization of the word, long and loudly, many in the public will come to hate the word and everything associated with it.

2, Now, attach any person or policy to the word, and the person or policy comes to be hated as well.

Evidence? Take a look at Newt Gingrich’s memo to GOPAC back when the political division was not as bad as today: Google “Language: A Key Mechanism of Control.” Yes, the conservatives started this well before Gingrich wrote the memo, but it did serve to clarify and consolidate the political methodology of the Right Wing. This was greatly enhanced by the rise of the neoconservatives.

So, here we are, a corporatocracy, slipping quickly into an oligarchy with the help of the corporatist conservative Supreme Court.

Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”
