    Support Human Decency wherever you find it.

    The natural divisions of human temperament, one side cautious, accepting, and narrow, the other adventurous, questioning, and broad, will always be around. Some people come up one way, others the other.

    The Rulers trick is to turn these temperaments into identifications with Flag-Groups and get everyone trying to play King of the Hill while they work to fuck us all over. Including their supposed allies.

    Fight Whacked Out Vanity. It's essential, imo, to realize that we are not dealing with massive invisible historical forces, but the actions and sentiments of real humans.

    All political ideologies exist as a justification for their core mood and intention. Fascism, is not a real thing, as much as it is organized fucked-up pricks. Let someone come along with the "Communist" flag, and when in power what you get is organized fucked-up pricks. But the people in the middle -- wave the official labels around and they get confused, ignore the core heart of reality.

    In other words, the trick of materialistic, pseudo-sophistication is to remove morality from the forefront on considerations. To pretend to have some ultimate, objective basis.

    But the only objective basis in reality is what people value and intend, and whether it's humanly decent or not is all that matters.

    Fascism, btw, is organized dickishness.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
