Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

Would you be willing to comment on my draft manifesto for balancing my concerns about the world/society with my well-being? Perhaps you have some suggestions. Basically, I want to work towards co-creating a fairer society that pays attention to climate, inequality, and justice, but I don’t want to get so caught up that I feel unhelpful anger or helplessness.

Survival manifesto
A. I will take what action I can when I notice injustice in the news or online.
B. Clicking in order to “like” something isn’t action.
C. Action includes supporting the people involved practically; writing to politicians; discussing the issue with others to try to gain support; and [...]
D. I will look after my well-being, and in particular I will acknowledge the limits of what I can control, and avoid getting agitated about things outside my control.
E. I will interact politely with people who I disagree with.

The trend line in the graph shows that, on average, trust in science declines as societal inequality increases.

“inequality affects how you see those around you … people in less equal societies are less likely to trust each other.”

#Antisemitism is best understood not as an anthropological constant but as an ever-changing, always delusional reaction of some non-Jews to their experience of an always-evolving #society.
From this point of view, the antisemitism of the 20th and 21st century can be seen as the epitome of anti-emancipatory #ideology, in which hatred of #enlightenment, self-awareness and #freedom are combined.


Hmmm, so Trumpism is anti-Semitic even though Trump and Netanyahu see eye-to-eye and baldly work to each other's benefit?

From this point of view, the antisemitism of the 20th and 21st century can be seen as the epitome of anti-emancipatory #ideology, in which hatred of #enlightenment, self-awareness and #freedom are combined. Because capitalist society is uncomprehended, fetishistic and self-mystifying, it contains a tremendous urge towards the delusional concretisation of abstraction (i.e. to put a tangible name and face on the source of distress). To simplify, this need to scapegoat, which seems to me to be one of the decisive elements of anti-Semitism, is, then, inherent to modern #capitalist society. The task of any materialist #critique of antisemitism is to make visible the connection between the antisemites and the society that produces them. In a delusional projection onto the ‘Jewish principle’ and its supposed physical embodiments, antisemites are fighting against social and individual ambivalences, and against individual and social contradictions and crises. This seems to me to be the constant factor in the different manifestations of antisemitism. https://fathomjournal.org/fathom-long-read-adorno-and-iran-critical-theory-and-islamic-antisemitism/ #adorno #israel #iran #education #modernity #capitalism #islamism #nazis #holocaust #lebanon #hezbollah #marx #europe #antifascism

“Hatred is not only a vice, but a vice which goes point-blank against Nature. Hatred divides instead of joining, and frustrates the will of Nature in human society. A person is born to help another. Hatred makes us destroy one another. Love unites—hatred separates… it is not hatred, but mutual love that holds all humankind together.”
Seneca, On Hatred

The Covidian Cult by C.J. Hopkins / October 13th, 2020


Source: https://dissidentvoice.org/2020/10/the-covidian-cult/
One of the hallmarks of #totalitarianism is mass conformity to a psychotic official #narrative.

Nazism and Stalinism are the classic examples, but the phenomenon is better observed in cults and other sub-cultural societal groups.

These narratives are invariably paranoid, portraying the cult as threatened or persecuted by an evil #enemy or antagonistic force which only unquestioning conformity to the cult’s #ideology can save its members from.

Moreover, cult leaders will often radically change these narratives for no apparent reason, forcing their cult members to abruptly forswear (and often even denounce as “heresy”) the beliefs they had previously been forced to profess, and behave as if they had never believed them, which causes their minds to further short circuit, until they eventually give up even trying to think rationally, and just mindlessly parrot whatever nonsensical gibberish the cult leader fills their heads with.

The cult leader isn’t trying to communicate. He is trying to disorient and control the listener’s mind.

If all this sounds familiar, good. Because the same #techniques that most cult leaders use to control the #minds of the members of their cults are used by #totalitarian systems to control the minds of entire #societies: Milieu Control, Loaded Language, Sacred #Science, Demand for Purity, and other standard mind-control techniques.

It is happening to most of our societies right now. An official narrative is being implemented. A totalitarian official narrative. A totally psychotic official narrative, no less delusional than that of the Nazis, or the Manson family, or any other cult.

This is what totalitarians and cult leaders count on, and exploit to implant their narratives in our minds, and why actual initiation rituals (as opposed to purely symbolic rituals) begin by attacking the subject’s mind with terror, pain, physical exhaustion, psychedelic drugs, or some other means of obliterating the subject’s perception of reality.

Nor can they perceive the delusional nature of the official “#Covid-19” narrative, no more than those in Nazi Germany were able to perceive how completely delusional their official “master race” narrative was.

Their initiation into the Covidian #Cult began in January, when the medical authorities and corporate #media turned on The Fear with projections of hundreds of millions of deaths and #fake photos of people dropping dead in the streets. The psychological conditioning has continued for months. The global masses have been subjected to a constant stream of #propaganda, manufactured #hysteria, wild speculation, conflicting directives, exaggerations, lies, and tawdry theatrical effects.

Facts do not matter to totalitarians and cult members. What matters is loyalty to the cult or the party.

What we are up against is not a misunderstanding or a rational argument over scientific facts. It is a fanatical ideological movement. A global totalitarian movement … the first of its kind in human history.

Instead of the #cult existing as an island within the dominant culture, the cult has become the dominant culture, and those of us who have not joined the cult have become the isolated islands within it.

I wish I could be more optimistic, and maybe offer some sort of plan of action, but the only historical parallel I can think of is how #Christianity “converted” the pagan world … which doesn’t really bode so well for us. While you’re sitting at home during the “second wave” lockdowns, you might want to brush up on that history.

"Ser gay es cool"

Tobias es gay. Para él eso no es un problema, al contrario se siente orgulloso de serlo pero no siempre fue así porque cuando el salió del Closet se sintió solo y sus padres - en especial su padre-, al comienzo no estaban claros con lo que estaba pasando con la homosexualidad de Tobias. Por esta experiencia, él esta comprometido con otros jóvenes Queer en la asociación Fliederlich en Nürnberg - Alemania.

Almost all of my posts are public, just because I want them to be public and thus findable. The search function in Diaspora is hilarious - it finds only users and hashtags.
I cannot even search for my own posts.
It turns out that here at pluspora, search engines are blocked for privacy concerns. See robots.txt:
User-Agent: \* 
Disallow: /

Now the effect is that mostly anything older than 2 days is gone. I find this unacceptable and want to ask the podmins of pluspora to re-think robots.txt.
Am I the only one who wants a searchable pluspora?
