it seems like a lot of people don't question authority, and when they do demand change it is to support our government and cultural values rather than oppose them. like all the black lives matter rioters, they weren't rebels or revolutionaries. the US stands for diversity and multiculturalism and equality for all, which is why they had the support of pretty much every major company. they did all that just to push us in a direction we were already headed. or they just did it to loot.
i feel like commies and nazis are the same way. like i used to be a NEETsoc when i was a teenager, but what really turned me off from it was it seemed like all the people that preached these kook ideologies all tried to promise their own version of the american dream. like under their ideology you would be successful with your work, be able to get a wife and have a family, and that under our ideology these prospects are obstructed. and i thought that was retarded because i dont want that shit. like it doesnt address the fatal flaw of government at all. mills makes a distinction between absolute government and absolute rulership. it seems like because we have a democracy, everybody thinks that we are "free" for some reason. but after the lockdowns last year, i never want to hear anybody say that shit again. like seriously fuck off. fascism and communism would just be the same thing except they stop pretending like we have a say in government.
i hate soceity like fundamentally. i dont think it can be reformed, i want it gone. rousseau says that government is slavery, and the common interest of society is carried out by making everyone a slave to everyone else. i think about this every time i am working a shit job for shit pay that i am actually just being a slave for my supervisor and for the stuck up consumers who buy our dogshit stuff. and you dont escape if you start your own business. you are just a slave to your creditors and your customers. i mean the whole point is to meet a demand. their demand.
i think it is a lot easier for people to never think about that because of how much more involved we are. most people are being bombarded with system affirming messages anywhere they are with phones, the internet, television. i read this book called manufacturing consent, and basically the whole point is that the media self censors itself to promote preserving the status quo to defend social hierarchies. it basically serves as a propoganda tool for the Post too long.
