Advice for the Week

From back in the days when even stoner beatniks had tanks, on the other hand we could do worse than to give it a try.

Friday Fuckoff Open Thread

The political tribal mentality that causes people to subordinate every principal they hold to hypocritical tribalism can fuckoff with a full sized totem poll coated with sriracha sauce.

Dementia can fuckoff for robbing people of their loved ones well before they are actually gone.

Finally highly variable temperatures can fuckoff for making me uses the heat/coat and air-conditioner/ice in the same day.

The floor is yours angry readers.

I don't want to start this fight on someone else's blog but yesterday Bayou Renaissance Man had an excellent post about Atheism-Activist Richard Dawkins' comments normalizing pedophilia parroting the NAMBLA playbook. Many people had visceral and heartfelt reactions to this and very rightly so. Today I find many people on the "right" twisting themselves into an ethics pretzel over the exact same things being said by Milo Yiannopoulos. So lets break down some of the disgusting prevarication going on out their.

  • He(I) was edited/taken out of context. Okay here's the transcript and an embed of the unedited audio, if you don't have a problem with that then that's where your conscience stands mine can't stand there. Don't bother to comment we aren't going to be able to come into the same moral frame of reference.
  • There's a huge difference between defending pre and post adolescence child rape by older men. To start with neither can give informed consent and neither has even close to a fully developed brain. In both cases there is a world of difference in savvy, and authority that will make consent impossible no matter how advanced the child is.
  • Yiannopoulos can't be a pedophile he's turned in three pedophiles to the police. That's about as stupid as saying there's no way a detective's snitch could ever have murdered someone.
  • They never made this kind of stink when Lena Dunham said she raped her sister. And you're just as hypocritical as they were for defending a normalizer of molestation just because you agree with them politically. Maybe we should abide by our own principals.

Quick Nazi Question

For people who declare that it is not just morally permissible but morally necessary to "punch a Nazi" and you get to define who is a Nazi.

Is it morally necessary to punch a Marxist not once but several times? After all if you count the respective civilian genocide we would have to build in a multiple.

I'd really rather sort things out without physical violence and personally intend to adhere to all applicable laws defining when violence is legally acceptable.  But given all the fine young Bolsheviks gearing up for the glorious people's revolution I though this an important hypocrisy to clear up.

Thought for the Night

One of my all time favorite books is Frank Herbert's Dune. It wouldn't be going too far to say it has shaped much of my personal philosophy. So I've a thought from it for tonight:

Hope clouds observation.

Do with it as you will good readers.

Paging Doctor Frankenstien

AoS managed to actually have that rarest of things a reasonable conversation between people who agree to disagree that summarizes a rapidly growing problem. I would argue that the renunciation of reason is far from one sided after this last year, yet it seems that since the inauguration the left has gone into renunciation mode in hyper-drive. To summarize it's no longer the professionally political who are demonizing and increasingly attacking other people who are professionally political. Now everything and everyone is political and demonizing their opponents about everything. This is leading to both increasing calls for violence, and increasing violence.

It would be reasonable to discus the self-defense when people have morally convinced themselves that physical violence against you is not only justified but virtuous. However there are far more qualified to discus bot the legality and practicality of self defense. All I can say is both be aware of and follow the law people.

What I would like to do is try to figure out how to not have this come to the historical methods of dealing with people who have renounced all reason, because while we might still have a country when it's done it wouldn't be a very nice country to live in anymore.

I'm still not sure what that will be but all I can plead is for people to adhere to the better angels of their natures, because we need to figure out how to fight this fire with water instead of fire or we are in for dark times.
