Recently on Free Talk Live, I lamented the fact that the Capitol Building wasn’t burned down. I was happy to see a show of force against the perceived invulnerability of the state, even if the protestors had the worst possible reason for doing it (and they’d have been hard-pressed to have a worse reason than they did). However, I applaud any attack on the symbology of the state and its religious apparatus. Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t the consent of the governed that keeps the state in existence; the state is actually preserved by widespread belief in its divinity.
So I play in a rockband called “FUD,” which is an acronym for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. It is common in the cryptocurrency world, because FUD is the bulk of media representation that crypto gets. I’m familiar with fear, uncertainty, and doubt. I just saw something online, however, that made me fearful that humanity is getting the message, uncertain that people will ever understand their place in the universe, and doubtful that there is hope. It was this series of tweets: First, this person intended this to be a positive message. It could have been positive, right up until the third part, where Waldman says, “I’m
It would be easy to be sad about the election results. For those who don’t follow me on Twitter, the election results are in, and I did not do very well. In fact, I probably did the worst of any major-party candidate in a two-way race throughout the United States. I’m not really upset by that; getting zero votes (beyond my own and my friends) was a realistic possibility. I am, after all, a transsexual anarchist and High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church. That is a whole lot of stuff about which the average voter may pause. I’m sure there were
It’s Election Day, for those who wish to engage in the exercise of futility that is voting. Personally, I am not a fan of voting. If it mattered, the powers that be wouldn’t let us do it. That’s generally my position, but it isn’t necessarily true in local elections, where the Powers That Be don’t exercise nearly as much control. Let’s be real for a moment, though. The two party system in the United States meticulously selects your candidates for you, and it’s why amazing stories like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s get so much attention–when we have someone who bypasses the party apparatuses to
The last six weeks or so have been extremely interesting, but I’m ready for the election so that, regardless of the results, I can at least move forward with a result. The biggest issue right now is having literally no idea what the voters of Cheshire County are going to do. I can’t help but notice that none of the Democrat houses that I drive past have Eli Rivera signs in the yard–they don’t have my signs, either, but even some Republicans who support me aren’t willing to put up my signs. It’s eerily similar to the 2016 presidential election, where Trump proved
