@kwit:matrix.orgkwitthe "normal", "consensus", or whatever they call it07:34:06
@sonofkafka:matrix.orgsonofkafka🦉mediocre pollution 07:34:11
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitsometimes also democracy or something else07:34:14
@sonofkafka:matrix.orgsonofkafkaDemocracy is the adults way of continuing to play highschool themes directed by the upper class 07:35:44
@kwit:matrix.orgkwittribes like to gather around ideas or individuals in order to make a "connection". to be protected by or to make some sort of goal that will seem meaningful to them somehow07:35:52
@sonofkafka:matrix.orgsonofkafkaThe void is deep 07:36:18
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitif something doesn't follow the "normal" as defined by a "them", they are free to practice evil07:37:20
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitit's only natural that a government from a normal/slack collective would express "power" by being even more so07:40:07
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitso in a way, it might be morally right to have such expressions07:40:29
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitlike bad examples07:40:39
@kwit:matrix.orgkwit"everyone" want to be "normal", isn't that a tune that's been playing for some time07:42:26
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitjust like in school where they bring up the most dull of history, events and wars. just so people get tired of the idea. a overwhelming idiocy would make people tired of it and strive to be something greater away from it07:43:42
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitbut it does remain a subject07:44:05
@kwit:matrix.orgkwitbullies hunt down what they don't understand. and mediocrity doesn't understand much07:45:08
@kwit:matrix.orgkwittherefor a government is necessary, because everyone is too lax to make their own decisions right07:46:29
@sonofkafka:matrix.orgsonofkafkaThe government is the polited version of the bullies, sir.07:51:24

@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreIs humankind ready for peace? or do we require an endless cycle of conflict to give context to our natural unrest?18:58:13

@sonofkafka:matrix.orgsonofkafkaPeace is a way of the common people, war is the money time of the rich and powerful 03:59:35
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreUnconvinced. Not that what you say isn’t in some ways true. Common people are easily ignorant and confused. They rape and murder when they loose control or think they will get away with it. Organized warfare may be a luxury of the resourceful, yet everything powerful people do clings within the unfulfilled mind of the ordinary.10:29:37
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreWithout the capacity to make war, the peaceful life of men inevitably come under duress.10:31:49
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovore The big mistake we make is thinking we remember anything from one generation to the next. Conflict has a 10-15 year cycle. About enough time for men to forget, and deceive themselves into thinking if they act quickly and decisively victory may be theirs 10:33:34
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovore Modern warfaring is more complex. More subtle. Not always bullets and bombs. 10:34:38
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreA secret war plays out even now, conquering minds, acquiring power over greater and greater masses by means imperceptible to ordinary minds.10:36:21
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovoreExtortion, coercion, subterfuge.10:36:58
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovore A secret governance of power hobbles your minds into subservience, strategically extorting through infinite hostages, and the thorough corruption of those elements of conventional law ordinary people believe secure in their openness 10:39:09
@inphovore:matrix.orginphovore * The big mistake we make is thinking we remember anything from one generation to the next. Conflict has a 10-15 year cycle. About enough time for men to forget, and deceive themselves into thinking if they act quickly and decisively victory may be theirs 10:40:24
