Project 2025 Is the alt right's hope that you've all forgotten your history as to how fascism gets into power.

The left Skipping the vote in 2024 is like the left putting all their support behind the alt right's project 2025.
The ideology of skipping the vote on the blue side, is just blind accelerationism.
THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EVEN CORPORATE DEMS AND ALLEGED "MODERATE" PUBS.
Your moral obligation is to get your ass out there and vote for the people who arent trying to bring fascism.
There is no tactical advantage to letting the Pubs win.
Skipping the vote for ideological reasons does nothing but cut your own throat.
You cant boycott the vote in a two party system.
Don't let your delusions of how things should be cause you to fuck shit up to as bad as it could be.​

Ideological purity is impossible outside of the purview of fanaticism, madness and brain damage. And even in these exceptions, it is still impossible. Boycotting the democratic vote in a two party system with fascism on the rise in america, is essentially collaberation with Project 2025. Don't break the spear you need for the sake of the spear you wish was possible to exist in a world where it cannot. Too many lives are at stake to allow the perfect to become such a deadly enemy to the good.

Florida schools have always been like this.
When I was her age the teachers still slapped students they thought they could get away with it with;
and they all cover for each other. Sometimes the teachers would even reward bullying certain students.
A kid could live out a pint sized version of Serpico or the Godfather in some florida schools.​

Note how the anchors portray everything like this like some sort of war. The terms frame the children as the enemy, the heroes were once outsiders who decided to conform to the narrative.
The reality isnt hard to explain: Would you want to hang out in a place where you had to fear for your life and bullshitted to by adults. Until the system starts giving people something attainible so theres a reason to invest in all the bullshit...this would go away like it never was. The anchors frame it like a war they're confused about so their questions are designed to instill hoplessness a feeling of small helplessness inside the individual viewer. The people out on the street putting in the effort are perhaps indeed heroes, but I would love if everyone could at least look themselves in the mirror and aknowledge that its no great mystery, nor surprise the thing to fix it begins in recognizing is the battle, and what things are the casualties. There is an education crisis in America, it's not a truancy problem. That is a result of survival instinct kicking in and recognizing it for what it is. Fascists are trying to destroy education in this country because an uneducated child is an easier to manipulate adult. The Internet is a genie that wont go back into the bottle short of a global emp that turns all electricity off. So kids arent being raised in a vacuum anymore. They want truancy to stop they need to stop the shootings in ways other than turning the schools into maximum security institutions. As Rube Goldbergian nightmare factories go, i feel like it should be pretty obvious how the mouse trap is supposed to work, but without any sort of good bait, its just an elaborately cogged murder machine. And its like right out in the open for everyone to see.
Children. Such imaginative and wonderous things.
Toys. Such imaginative and wonderous things...​

Nick Cave and Tom Waits write the music of real life. Nice to know Nick's letter writing game is top notch too.​

While I'm not a fan of the whole greek letter male pilliverse.
To me it looks like a strange mockery of the original bad research about wolves in captivity.
This is what happens to little boys who grow up abused and how they're taught to deal with that. What "works" to make the physical bullying stop. These are kids who didnt want to be violent, but couldnt bear up under violence, so they develop a kind of camoflage. All I hear in Greek Letter Men Pill coments are desperate and often inscrutible cries for help. Part of it comes from insecurity of never being able to be seen as normal, part of it comes from a life time of being bullied and trying to cope with being a social creature in social isolation. Its sad. And its telling. Ive noticed by and large online the gender divide has split into victims on both sides trying to front as the heroes of their own narrative be they "feminist" or "man going their own way". These are people who are desperately afraid of being picked on and a hopless outlook that they're never going to find a place of acceptance or normality. They have all of them been decieved and have fallen into a trap. Because no person is ever just one thing and no one can fully be summed up by a single categorization, either by the self or by others. People are just too complex dispite their doomed yearning for simplicity.

Sticks and stones will break my bones
But I always will be true
And when your mama is dead and gone
I'll sing this lullaby just for you
So what becomes of all the little boys
Who never comb their hair?
They're lined up all around the block
On The Nickel over there


So you better bring a bucket
There is a hole in the pail
If you don't get my letter
Then you'll know that I'm in jail
So what becomes of all the little boys
Who never say their prayers?
They're sleepin' like a baby
On The Nickel over there

If you chew tobacco, and wish upon a star
You'll find out where the scarecrows sit
Just like punchlines between the cars
I know a place where a royal flush
Can never beat a pair
And even Thomas Jefferson
Is On The Nickel over there

So ring around the rosie, you're sleepin' in the rain
And you're always late for supper
And man you let me down, let me down again
I thought I heard a mockingbird, Roosevelt knows where
You can skip the light with grady tuck
On the Nickel over there

So what becomes of all the little boys
Who run away from home?
The world just keeps gettin' bigger
Once you get out on your own
So here's to all the little boys
The sandman takes you where
You'll be sleepin' with a pillowman
On the Nickel over there

So let's climb up through that button hole
And fall right up the stairs
I'll show you where the short dogs grow
On the Nickel over there
