Larken Rose does what some of the anarchists won’t. He explains how it’s being done wrong and that millions of people are going to starve to death. I don’t even like LR that much. I always thought them ancap.
There’s some very tasteless posts going around on social media. Insipid. Willfully ignorant. Tasteless. I know I said that already but I’m tired so fuck away. They are base, these posts. All coming from this empty air space of privilege and disconnect.
“Let’s have a virtual dinner!” “Come on a walk with me in my upscale neighborhood!” “My Zoom meeting was SO FUNNY yesterday!” “Look at me posing against my brightly colored wall!” (For that last one it took every last ounce of strength I had not to quip, “I see you’ve already lined yourself up nicely for when the revolution comes! Thanks, essential!”)
You can literally say “Millions of people are going to die across the globe.” And the response will be “You sound like Donald Trump.” Or, “Look at the album cover that changed my life.”
This empty language has sunk to gibberish. They have to be bots. They’re bots, right? But they’re not bots because I’ve been to their houses and gone out to dinner with them and walked with them and laughed with them. But they are really insipid, these people. These bots. These glib, smug tasteless bots on a social media feed.
Everyone should be railing and engaged and researching and focusing their laser sharp minds on: Supply chains are drying up. People are going to starve to death. Children are getting arrested, violently, by police. Sustainable development models are being implemented. Military planes are flying overhead day in and day out. Brown countries are holding onto the last shreds of their autonomous sovereignty. Human capital. The death industrial complex. The poverty industrial complex reinventing itself. Nothing’s open. Everything’s gone. Capitalism is over. The engorged wealthy have all they need. It’s neo feudalism and the demon said it best, back then.
The masks are murder. The social distancing is murder. The immune system is collapsing. It’s being done on purpose which is murder by design. Murder literally by a highly funded, heavily designed marketing campaign with executives, and board meetings and investors and capital markets and global puppeteers. It’s literally murder in the making. This is murder. Murder. There’s no other way to describe it. It’s murder. How many times can I say murder in one paragraph. Murder. Murder. Murder. Murder. We are being told to murder ourselves and our children. It’s being suggested. It’s not. even. law. Just do it. Just put the mask on, breathe in too much carbon dioxide and slowly suffocate yourself and your children to death.
There’s a good little corpse.
And the dead-eyed response through a menagerie of tasteless self indulgent banal social media streams is the only response to fascism, as it stomps its boot on your neck and crushes everything inside of you, around you, above you, beneath you. You’re done. Toast. Kaput. Murdered.
There’s the Fascist with the Big F like the Governors and Bill Gates and Fauci, then there’s the fascists with the little “f” like liberals, and the privileged and everyone who’s super down with smothering their babies to death over unnecessary masks and forgetting basic immunology 101 and seething with self righteous anger calling anyone who casually says “I kinda think herd immunity is what we’ve been doing for thousands of years and that’s probably the best thing for a virus that isn’t even as harmful as a common cold.”
And these little “f” fascists scream their self righteous spittle on your face. Well, they can’t because they’re wearing that stupid, stupid mask.
And every little lie from the Fascists and their media entourage is held up as a precious golden flower of truth as the future murdered fascists sit in their haloed self-important poses, sheltering in place by reminding the world that they’re helping the Fascists by flattening the curve.
Some people say “If these super smug fascist people saw that a despotic leader was doing these things to another country, they’d raise their fist in righteous anger.” Don’t kid yourself. I know these people. They could give two shits if some far off despotic psychopath was murdering his own people to oblivion. Honestly. They really don’t care. They’re fascists.
And, it’s only going to get worse. From the Fascists and their fascist bootlickers and their adoring fash-fans.
I’m starting to wonder if I should just remind them to tighten that mask a little tighter. There you go. Nice and tight now. Watch their immune system completely collapse. After all, they won’t starve to death. These condescending essential bots socially distancing like good little Fascist wannabes will social justice warrior your ass all the way through to the snitch line.
Murder by Fascists. Then fascists.
