I saw these around the city yesterday.

My city is one where we are currently in the rapid process of gentrification. Old historical buildings are being torn down and replaced with ugly ‘luxury’ condos by rich developers from out of state, and small privately owned businesses, mom-and-pop shops, and cooperatives are being displaced by the same chain shops that one already sees in every city every where. As new homes are built that only rich people from out of state can afford, families and individuals that have lived here their whole lives are finding themselves priced out of the area, and homelessness is on the rise.

The goal of capitalism isn’t to set people free. The goal is to profit, as steadily as possible, off their continued neediness.
I struggle when I hear certain people decrying the poor for being ‘needy’ and appearing helpless. For what has capitalism created over the centuries, if not a system that provokes need, binds people to corporate offerings, and does its best to ensure they can never really get out from under the crushing burden of debt we saddle them with in exchange for 'allowing’ them to work for the capitalist system? 
The absolute 'worst’ outcome in a capitalistic enterprise is to create something that enables people to become more self-sufficient. By fostering self-sufficiency, the business undermines its ability to continue to harvest money off its dependents.
—  Eileen Workman
We are not among those communists who are out to destroy personal liberty, who wish to turn the world into one huge barrack or into a gigantic workhouse. There certainly are some communists who, with an easy conscience, refuse to countenance personal liberty and would like to shuffle it out of the world because they consider that it is a hindrance to complete harmony. But we have no desire to exchange freedom for equality. We are convinced that in no social order will freedom be assured as in a society based upon communal ownership.

In the next order, in the socialist order, it is indeed freedom that will be sovereign. Socialism is the supreme affirmation of individual rights. Nothing is above the individual. There is no celestial authority that can bend him to his whim or terrorize him with his threats…

…If man, as socialism so wishes, does not belong to a supra-human individual, it does not belong more to other human individuals. No man is the instrument of God, no man is the instrument of another man. There is no master over mankind; There is no master in mankind. Neither a king nor a capitalist. Men no longer want to work and suffer for a dynasty. They no longer want to work and suffer for a class. But in order for no individual to be at the mercy of an external force, in order for every man to be fully autonomous, the means of freedom and action must be ensured for all. It is necessary to give as much science and thought as possible to all, so that, freed from hereditary superstitions and traditional passivities, they walk proudly under the sun. Everyone must be given equal share of political right, of political power, so that in the city no man should be the shadow of another man, so that the will of each should contribute to the direction of the whole and that, in the broadest movements of societies, the human individual regains his freedom. Finally, everyone must have a right of ownership over the means of labor, so that no man may depend on his life for another man, so that no one is obliged to be alienated, in the hands of those who hold the productive forces, of a particle of his effort or a particle of his freedom.

-Jean Jaurès, “Socialism and Liberty,” 1898.

HAHA - A promise of freedom with state power

I can’t believe I found something funny: A political ideology trying to convince others that you need to get into state power to undo all the corruption and get rid of ones threatening people’s lives.

Beware of one-liners such as “how will society be structured”, “a new radical form of governance that promises and wants to work towards freedom”, “other evil-isms are trying to take over your country” as they are collective division and bait traps.

If you really believe in self-sufficiency and liberty, it is best to do what you like to do without relying on or waiting form state power.

Communism, Facism, Marxism, “evil-ism”, “utopia-ism” all rely the idea on the state power deciding how society works, which works against REAL LIBERTY.

Here is the picture:

Trying to propose a new definition of communism while trying to promise freedom with state power runs against on how governments and liberty work:

Liberty - the freedom for individuals to do anything peacefully and voluntarily without being forced by rulers.

Government - whoever holds the reign can either choose to make laws to restrict government power or expand power at cost to liberty.

 Jean paul Sartre (21st june 1905 - 15th April 1980)

I’ve already covered Kierkegaard, nietzsche and dostoyevsky it would be a disgrace not to cover Sartre. A French commie with a wandering eye. Who became a household name in the US and his native France and embedding himself in history. 

Born in Paris, in 1905 his father died when he was very young and he grew up attached to his mother. They moved back to his mothers home in Meudon where he was raised by his grandfather. His mother remarried much to his regret and they relocated to La rochelle where he was bullied for his strabismus and his thick heavy glasses. He was very short and when he reached adulthood he only stood at 5′3 inches. He frequently described himself as “ugly”. 

Sartre met his lifelong friend and ocasionally sexual partner. Simone de Beauvoir while studying at the École Normale Supérieure. After he graduated he was drafted into the French army to fight in world war 2. His forced conscription would contribute to sartres feeling of freedom and purpose. 

When he returned to paris in May 1941 he and ecole founded an underground socialist group called Socialisme et liberté (Socialism and liberty) which was anything but dangerous in Nazi occupied France. During this time he wrote the book that made his name. Being and nothingness. 

He became famous not becuase people could logically decipher what he was saying. But because they couldn’t quite. His book was based on the idea of existentialism and revolved around 4 main principles. 

1. Things are weirder than we think. Pay close attention to the world around you and things appear more strange. Realising that a chair is just a piece of wood and wondering what use does it have, suddenly the word chair becomes loose from your tounge, as only a string of letters. Sartre described this as peering into the “Absurdity of the world”.

2. We are free. Sartre described the anguish of life. Life is scary because nothing has any premade purpose. A chair is made to be sat on. But humans have no such design. Realising that every eventuallity in your head is possible. Terrifies us. 

3. We shouldn’t live in bad faith. Sartre believed nothing is out of our limits. We shouldn’t live in just accepting the fact that “Things have to be this way”. In being and nothingness satre describes a waiter. Every step is quick. Every movement is too precise. Every word is too devoid of emotion. As if he was firstly a waiter and secondly a human being.

4. We are free to dismantle capitalism. Sartre believed the one thing stopping from us being free is money. Most of us want to experience the world and its wonders. But we don’t make enough money. Capitalism enraged satre he thought it was a machine that created nessecity that didn’t really exist. It was because of these views Sartre became heavily involved in marxism because it removed the value of material gains. 

Becuase of his some would say “Radical” philosophy the CIA kept a large file on Sartre and he was arrested in 1968. But was pardoned by the president of France charles de Gaulle who said “You don’t arrest voltaire”. He was offered the nobel prize for literature but refused it stating “a writer should not allow himself to be turned into an institution”

Sartre still inspires to this today urging us to tap into our unfufilled potential as free human beings. 

“Better to die on ones feet than to live on ones knees”

~*~Each sign makes up for the downfalls of the one before~*~

I’m sure YOU have portrayed many of these virtues and mistakes at some point, as YOU ARE ALL THE SIGNS. That which exists above us lives within us!

Aries rises anew when Pisces has been run into the ground by those who have stomped on them, and all the life Pisces has seen.  Aries is fresh and eager where Pisces is the hesitant sage that feels to have seen it all. Aries is the queen of witty comebacks, they know how to put others in their place!  Aries sticks up for themselves with all their might, to the point of rightfully cutting down those who have crossed them!  Pisces the people pleaser hasn’t learned this unless they have a Mercury in Aries, for example.  Even if you’re not an Aries, you may have these traits if you have Mars in Aries.  While Pisces can be wishy washy, Aries is the bold go getter!  Aries is full of “va va voom” when Pisces is worn out.

Taurus portrays patience, unlike Aries.  Taurus understands managing money and business with a steady pace where an Aries is more like, “Let’s just get er done!”.  Aries may fall into impulse buys, where Taurus focuses on work to save up for indulgent treats.  Taurus has settled down while Aries can be too much go go go…  Taurus is usually pleasant to be around, taking longer to have a tantrum than Aries would, yet they are both aggressive.  Mars in Taurus is a subdued Mars, Sun in Taurus is someone who builds a pleasant life for themselves, however they choose to define it.

Gemini is the excited leap up from methodical Taurus; buzzing around full of movement unlike the bull who likes to lay in the pasture. The transition from being SO PHYSICAL, with the joys of affection and comfort food to savoring intellectual joys; Gemini reads an array of topics while Taurus might rather stick to pleasures of the body.  Taurus follows thru while Gemini is all over the place struggling to complete tasks because their brilliant mind always has more to add on!  Taurus may get stuck in ruts because they stick to foods and opinions they hold dear, whereas Gemini is thrilled to hear new opinions and try new activities.

Cancer shows consideration where Gemini likes to push someone’s buttons.  Cancer has the potential of stability while Gemini is jittery, to be fluid in feelings when Gemini thinks they’re oh so rational, ignoring the heart of a situation.  Cancers don’t mind being the shoulder to cry on where Gemini prefers to be the fair weather friend, keeping conversation light and in the intellect instead of coaxing the sadness of another.  Gemini Moon girls, however, love to talk about their feelings.  Cancer nurtures when Gemini just wants to chat away.

Leo is determined when Cancer exhibits “sideways behavior”.  The crab does what they *feel* like doing, even procrastinating, when Leo’s pride motivates him to get things done.  Both these signs are insecure, but Leo has great skills of presentation and performance.  Leos are often go getters unless they have planets in Cancer to hold them back.  Both signs are very heartfelt and creative, Cancer creates from their emotions, while Leo creates from passion.  Since Leos care about the impressions they set, they won’t whine like a Cancer, but they sure take a stab to the ego pretty hard!  Leos strive to improve their work performance and creative pursuits, to prove themselves after they’ve been put down.

Virgo presents themselves modestly when Leo loves to toot their own horn.  Virgos clean up the mess left from a Leo’s party, feeling the satisfaction of purifying what has been tainted.  I’ve known many health conscious Virgos who are called “particular” by those who eat out of the passion of the moment like a Leo.  Ruled by Mercury, Virgos willingly learn the negative effects of MSG and avoid it, while others perceive that as fussy, it is a Virtue for Virgo.  The Mercurial intellect is more focused in Virgo than Mercury in Gemini, taking note of crucial details better than any other sign.  Virgo represents the bees and butterflies which pollinate the earth, providing the organic produce we harvest, while the Lion is the carnivore that takes the lives, Virgo nourishes for the lives in the entire food chain.  Lions wouldn’t survive if not for insects; step by step, building up, Virgo provides what is needed to the entire world.  This is a metaphor for how Virgo humans do the dirty work, the tough jobs that keep the world running. Think mechanics, nurses, data entry, secretaries, and computer programming that requires technical knowledge that Virgo handles best.

Libra is the breath of fresh air from the agonizing details, having an appreciation for harmony instead of criticism.  Virgo had grown so cynical from the serious work he had to do, Libra expresses Liberty, socializing sweetly.  Both Libra and Virgo are intellectual but Libra is better at seeing the big picture, gaining insight from different kinds of people instead of being zoned in.  Libra is the diplomat, considerate while Virgo can be condescending.  Virgo may do what feels right to them, but in a way that comes off as snooty to others, while Libra lives based on what pleases others.  They use their charm and congeniality to get what they want.

Scorpio treads into the darkness that Libra fears.  Scorpios prefer a few close friends, Libra gravitates towards groups, being miz popularity instead of the intense love and true friendship that Scorpio exhibits.  Scorpio wonders, “How can Libra be the shallow socialite with so many friends who never talk about deep stuff?”  Scorpio feels everything to the core of their soul where Libra looks at the surface of topics and situations.  Scorpio perceives the motivations, complexes, and underlying mechanisms of the minds of others when Libra would rather get along with everyone, give them the benefit of the doubt.  Scorpio clings onto the people and aspirations, deeply determined because they are so emotionally invested, even to the point of being overly attached, which leads us to…

Sagittarius knows when it is time to drop something or someone that isn’t working out.  Her wild, mutable flame doesn’t get stuck in ruts as all the fixed signs might.  Instead of being chained to toxic thought patterns like Scorpio, Sagittarius runs free, eager to expand their horizons with different cultures, not just sticking to what they know.  Sagittarius gets joy out of life that the others wouldn’t jump for because of being attached to comfort, like trying that exotic curry or daringly spreading wasabi on their sushi!  Want to go scuba diving?  Let’s go!

Capricorn mindfully weighs the “what ifs” before moving forward.  Want to go scuba diving?  “What if there are sting rays?”  Will you have a slice of the cake I baked, “No, I’m watching my sugar amounts.”  While the fire signs go for the gusto, Capricorn says, stop, lets think about this first.  Sagittarius excitedly says, “Yes!” without concern for consequences.  Capricorn instinctively realizes what could go wrong in given scenarios, and they have innate wisdom and sensibility that others perceive as a wet blanket.  Capricorn likes to go one step at a time, to thoroughly learn a subject where Sagittarius treats knowledge with enthusiasm, not necessarily fully focusing on crucial facts.  Capricorn values competency before putting themselves out there.

Aquarius has flashes of brilliance, they don’t need to take things one step at a time!  Their knowledge whirls rapidly into innovative achievement.  Being ruled by both Saturn (traditional ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler), they can exhibit the focused determination of Saturn and the wild freedom loving Uranus.  Aquarius is the revolutionary, rebelling from the confines of a controlling world.  They wish to go their own way instead of climb the career ladder.

Pisces has learned to be at peace instead of rebel.  Pisces can be seen as the culmination of all signs, having grown wise and weary from the lessons of all of them.  The ocean from which we all originated and will return to.  Pisces represents the collective, the spirit world, where all souls blend together; whereas Aquarius can be so individualist to the point of separatist. Aquarius can be unaware of their effect on others, Pisces cares, adapting to the needs and wants of others.  When Aquarius can be emotionally detached in order to make way for their intellect, Pisces is all about free flowing feelings, streams of music inspired by their sensitivity. 

Please note: Blog posts are meant to be entertaining and not a replacement of an in depth personalized reading made just for you.  I can show you insight into what the planets are wishing to teach YOU specifically. Message me for details.

Marriage equality was never achieved

There is no problem with gay people marrying, as far as I am concerned, but had I realized the conflict with my principles that socialized marriage poses, I would not have supported the LGBT lobby’s attempt at including gay marriage into socialized marriage. It is a problem that the marriage system excluded gay people, so to the simple mind, the inclusion of gays into that system was the solution. But it was not actually the rightful, liberal solution, the solution was to end the current government monopoly on officiating marriage and the government dictation on what constitutes marriage.

We should never have fought for or against the extension of socialized marriage to include gay marriage, what should have fought against was socialized marriage - we should have fought for the liberalization of marriage, to take marriage back from the government and give it back to the people. Socialized marriage was unapologetically instituted by government in order for them to overtly socially engineer society - to control divorce, to ban interracial marriage, and to ban gay marriage. Instead of taking this Orwellian tool of power away from the government, the LGBT/feminist/socialist lobby expanded the reach of this abomination so that it could be their own ideological tool over society instead.

Social marriage is an oppressive force, with only a tax-benefit carrot on a stick to incentivize and sugarcoat it. The inclusion of gay people into that system was not equal liberty, it was equal oppression, which is the only thing socialism has ever offered. It is ironic that this particular socialist threat was not actually posed by the left, but legalist sects of protestants who saw the government as part of god’s authority. Christian theocracy is a form of socialism, and so it’s no coincidence that outright socialists actually stood for expanding that system to include more people rather than destroying a system that religious conservatives had created.

It seems to me that this approach of ending government marriage should have had bipartisan support, as it does actually satisfy the both errors: legal discrimination & the of forcing of religious people to recognize the validity of a unity which doesnt match their understanding of valid marriage. If someone doesnt recognize a marriage, they actually have the right not to, and the people they’re denying deserve for that to be of no legal consequence to them, and the institution which made it a legal problem for gay people and religious conservatives alike was the government, which both ironically demanded be in the oppressive position it was. But I suppose the left would certainly prefer to be able to sue people who dont see the world the way they do, and the right would rather be a cunt. If the right, liberals, and leftists have any interest at ending the unrightful dictation of marriage by legal authority, I recommend organizing against this socialist system of marriage. Society snowballs into a worse and worse state the further from integrity with our principles that we compromise, like ticking the temperature up one degree at a time.

Marriage equality was never achieved in the liberal sense, because socialized marriage is an illiberal a violation of your right to free belief & religion, freedom of conscience, freedom of privacy, and a violation of the liberal principle of privately organized of society. We need to end the government’s authority in ordaining marriages on the federal and state level.

  • Right-winger: Leftists are just glorified statists! They want constant wealth redistribution and big government to fulfill all their needs!
  • Engels: The modern state, no matter what its form, is essentially a capitalist machine -- the state of the capitalists, the ideal personification of the total national capital. The more it proceeds to the taking over of the productive forces, the more does it actually become the national capitalist, the more citizens does it exploit. The workers remain wage-laborers -- proletarians. The capitalist relation is not done away with.
  • Marx: All forms of the state have democracy for their truth, and for that reason are false to the extent that they are not democracy.
  • Luxemburg: There is no democracy without socialism and no socialism without democracy.
  • Kropotkin: Where there is authority, there is no freedom.
