When you believe the means justifies the ends, a la Saul Alinsky’s playbook, pretty much anything goes. Have fun with it by all means , and don’t let the discord get to you, but remember, the point is to keep you going around in circles instead of having a real life. These people are quite happy to isolate you from all your friends, and leave you fecked up and lonely, wondering where it all went wrong. They do that by interspersing lies with truths, and using phoney justifications for doing it. They even want you to help them to keep others going in the same circles (called driving social engagement by marketers). These people are not your real friends, they are fairweather friends who only wish to have you onboard as long as the going is good, and the clicks keep coming. To understand the multi-layered nature of the game, let’s have Bill Hicks explain.
YouTube LARPS involve the utilization of the most cynical methods methods imaginable by cross-platform marketers to emotionally engage the viewer while distancing them increasingly from reality. The post below from Symzonia explores surrealist art in relation to the reflected realities that lie on the other side of our reality. Marketers reappropriate and subvert Fine art and transmute the sublime into the mundane in the name of Mammon. The aim is to engage the viewer, keep him going around in ever decreasing circles, before he finally disappears into a rabbit-hole which is the blackest pit of all, Dante’s 4th circle, where hopefully all marketers will reside for eternity, being poked eternally by the rest of us. If we ever speak to another human being again, that is, after having our souls raped by these lowlives, whose moral justification is the Assassins Creed, of killing them with kindness. The kindness extends to endlessly poking YOU with endless volumes of spam Emails bringing you to other places you really don’t want to end up in, and pleas to interact in Facebook groups, where they mine your data, in order to have something to read in hell. Meanwhile, decent folk are kind of hoping they’ll choke on their own psychotic pills. Perhaps we would be better off hanging out with nobler creatures, but it would be a pity to lose one’s faith in the goodness of at least most of the people we interact with. They are not all actors in the movie ‘zombie apocalypse‘. They are the great big happy family that wants to sell you something, and all you need to give up in return is your soul.
