In the land of the blind...

Daily humour:


LAWYERS for Julian Assange have expressed anger about an alleged smear campaign against the Australian WikiLeaks founder.

In a move that surprised many of Mr Assange's closest supporters on Saturday, The Guardian newspaper published previously unseen police documents that accused Mr Assange in graphic detail of sexually assaulting two Swedish women. One witness is said to have stated: "Not only had it been the world's worst screw, it had also been violent." - The Australian


Wait, you mean leaks are only good when it's not your own information getting leaked?

So that pithy phrase "just don't have secrets" doesn't apply here?

All that assumption that only bad people have secrets, that was just hogwash?

I guess it's funny how governments say to people, "If you have nothing to hide, don't worry about privacy." Then people say that back to government, which makes no sense as government isn't a person, but a policy instrument. And that's a far more complex field than an individual life. But now we've got Julian Assange saying that he wants some information to be protected from leaks. But he doesn't want to extend the same right to government, even though its task is a billion times more complicated than not raping Swedish women.

What an amusing world.


Why film yourself hitting your wife's lover? Why even hit your wife's lover? No man owes you a vow of fidelity. If your wife cheats, it's on her. (Via ATL.) Attacking the man is infantilizing the woman. Why not punch her? - CF


Summary: boy marries girl, boy gets cancer, girl gets affair, so boy punches out interloping male.

That anyone has any objection to this is a travesty. Of course you beat the cheater. Of course you don't punch the woman. She's your wife. You don't hit your wife. But you can pound the ass of the parasite who decided he'd take advantage of the situation. Clearly he's a scumbag.

In other times, both past and future, people recognize that you either uphold a social principle or you let everything fall apart. When people start doing what's convenient, trust goes out the window, and then so does working together. At that point, society becomes a shopping transaction. There is no other obligation except to make ourselves feel happy.

So we ignore big problems, but one cat gets tortured on the internet, and we're all over that! Because it makes us feel like a big fuckin' MAN to go kick ass on the cat-torturer.

And while we were doing that, another 10,000 cats starved to death on the streets, victims of neglect by other selfish people who bought a kitten, found it became too much work, and then just cut it loose.

Humans, the problem isn't our government having secrets. The problem is our little secret: that 90% of us do nothing but go to jobs and leave messes behind. That most people are secretly miserable, but on the surface, are there to tell us how cool they are and make us feel bad about what we don't have. That there's no social order, only a giant tangle of people struggling to get to the top.

While those 10,000 cats starved to death, a few hundred thousand gallons of toxic sludge hit our oceans. Another few hundred million cubic meters of exhaust filled the skies. Landfills pile higher, toxins spread farther, there's less land for animals and so, without a "democratic" voice, they die quietly in unseen places.

The human disease is to always look for something tangible to blame, like God, King, Corporation or Government, when in fact the problem is very simple: we are out of control, and breeding out of control, and no one wants to say NO to the individual and tell them that the rules apply to them too. We're great with attacking "evils" like Government Secrets or a Single Cat Torturer, but we can't face the mundane evil within.

And that is what will convey us back down the evolutionary chain to monkeyness, which is where in spirit, most of these people already are.

actually, I'd hit the wife. Men by definition have the obligation to try whatever to impress whoever they want. Women make the choosing. Noone forced her to cheat on her dying husband. Get a divorce and then screw anyone - probably the dude didn't know that she was going to be husband-free in a few weeks. In any case, both of them deserve some punishment ;) thetruth - 20-12-’10 02:59

I like how you comment modern neurosis Mr. Prozak. Keep up the good work. TommyD - 20-12-’10 11:25

Of course you do.
Mr. Prozak is the most brilliant writer in history.
Even more so than Johann Christian Friedrich Hölderlin.

His work on the decadence and the dying of civilizations can only be equated to the work of Nietzsche and Homer, because we are living in an age of sheer decadence, decadence of culture, decandence of values, of absolute colapse of every single metaphysical infrastructure than you could ever possibly imagine.
Who created Homer, author of the Odyssey and the Iliad, is irrelevant. The works of Homer represented the last dying years of the Mycenaean Empire and consecuentaly. a specific World-View (Global Perspective).
Nietzsche would do the same at the end of the XIX Century, the year in which Modernity would colapse and end, just like the Mycenaean civilization.
We are, since the XXth Century, not in Arcaic, Ancient, Medieval, or Modern History, but Contemporary History.
Our task is to critically view and understand what the XXth Century was, because it was the first Century of Contemporary History. The XXth Century was a "Dark Age" much like the one that followed the colapse of the Roman Empire, and much like the one that followed the colapse of the Mycenaean Empire. We are now, in the XXIst Century, in a sort of Renaissance-like Epoch. The task of critically viewing what the XXst Century was will determine the greatness of this new Renaissance-like XXIst Century.

Just my 0.02 cents,
if even worth that. Rhizome (URL) - 20-12-’10 13:09

unfortunately, Prozak lacks the power of insight and style that made Nietzsche a fantastic philosopher-poet. Prozak is a powerful voice of lucidity amidst complete (post-)modern chaos - among not too many, but he's very well entrenched in a clear dogma (and thus, a philosophical system, if not dilettantism), as it can be seen by the fact that the same ideas are being repeated for years on this site. thetruth - 21-12-’10 01:44

"But now we've got Julian Assange saying that he wants some information to be protected from leaks."

I don't think that's what he's saying. I think he's saying that his case is being misrepresented. It may or not be, but it's quite different from what he did, which is release primary source documents, completely uncommented and uneditorialized.

"That anyone has any objection to this is a travesty. Of course you beat the cheater. "

That's ridiculous. I know it's a common belief, but it's absolutely insane. The quote was right. The man is not the one who made the promise. I'm not saying he's a good guy, but he's not the one who wronged you. And this is all assuming he even knew the woman was married.

"Of course you don't punch the woman. She's your wife. You don't hit your wife."

Well, I agree with this. You don't hit your wife. You don't hit anyone, at least not unless they're about to hit you. But hitting the man is no more right than hitting your wife.

"But you can pound the ass of the parasite who decided he'd take advantage of the situation. Clearly he's a scumbag."

Nope. Not even if he is a scumbag. Being a scumbag is not a punchable offense.

"The problem is our little secret: that 90% of us do nothing but go to jobs and leave messes behind. "

How is that a secret?

"The human disease is to always look for something tangible to blame, like God, King, Corporation or Government, when in fact the problem is very simple: we are out of control, and breeding out of control, and no one wants to say NO to the individual and tell them that the rules apply to them too. "

Actually, the point of this whole scandal is that the rules *do* apply. Dave (Email ) - 22-12-’10 09:59

"Well, I agree with this. You don’t hit your wife. You don’t hit anyone, at least not unless they’re about to hit you."

Whether you are dealing with an asteroid that will hit you 200 years from now or 200,000 years from now, you send a preemptive missile that fucker's way and make sure it is dealt with.

"Nope. Not even if he is a scumbag. Being a scumbag is not a punchable offense."

Fuck that. Scumbags are just filth in my pearly gutter. Kill 'em all! No tolerance for the weak! Levy_Spearmen - 22-12-’10 11:09

So, pedophiles and the like can be rehabilitated. Right? Scumbags should roam free in our midst because we have no values to uphold. Riiiiiight? Levy_Spearmen - 22-12-’10 16:27

Uh, where the hell did I mention pedophiles? Or anything criminal/illegal?

Apples and oranges, dude. Dave (Email ) - 06-01-’11 13:53

Both fruit. Both tasty. What the fuck do they have to do with paedophiles, though? Cargast - 28-02-’11 08:42
