Masked Comedians Of Discordia and the QAnon Phenomenon

book coverBy now, if you are American, and spend a lot of time on the interwebs, you will be asking yourself, as I have, is the QAnon phenomenon (kindof rolls off the tongue nicely, that) a big spoof, a bit of light-hearted fnordic ludibrium with some unfortunate side-effects.
Fnordic humour is a big part of the Discordian outlook. Taking yourself, or the world around you too seriously would just kill the joke. The other thing is, not everyone gets to be in on the joke, some folks are busy being serious and don’t have time to joke around about reality, and that’s just fine. In fact, it often makes the joke even funnier for those in on it, as it did in the case of the Q phenomenon, for those who maintained that Q were a group of hackers LARPing about, at everyone else’s expense. When Donald Trump decided to do something very serious, on Friday 13th April, involving Syria, a disputed chemical attack, and a bombing mission, the joke turned very sour, as his most loyal supporters, dubbed the ‘deplorables‘ by his election opponent Hillary Clinton, reeled in shock from the departure from the promises he had made in campaigns. They were no longer in the mood for the triumphalist joking about that gave birth to some truly epic memes such as Pepe the Frog.

Not all Discordians have a sense of humour unfortunately. There are some people who are right full of themselves there, as there are in all organisations, no matter how loosely organised they say their structure is. Take Cramer Florian, for example, who got quite irate over a PewDiePie video that was posted on the Discordian ‘Neoists‘ page on Facebook.

His anger seemed a bit over the top, until he admitted that himself and many of his pals are affiliated with the Antifa political organisation, which has recently been designated an internal terrorist group by the US government, after a series of particularly violent clashes with ‘alt-right‘ groups at protests. Eric Clanton, anyone? Mr. college professor, Don-a-balaclava then attack people with a bike lock in order to fight to make social conditions better for the proletariat.

Or ‘Moldy-locks, Antifa’s pin-up gal, who thought she could throw Molotov cocktails with the best of them, until someone shut her down with a swift punch to the forehead, proving that it is not always wrong to hit a girl. In fact, I have to admit, I laughed a little.

Q – The Big Finish

http://vintagewinnie-bentley1938.blogspot.ie/2012/01/alice-in-wonderland-advice-from.html

Crossing the Delaware Demotivation

The Q phenomenon is quite a thing in the US. Outside of there, not so much. Ireland’s RTE Radio 1 Sean O’ Rourke radio show managed to discuss a new book about the Alt-Right by Mike Wendling,  ‘From 4Chan to the White House‘, without once mentioning Q. Which was strange, given how crazy ‘The Storm’ has gotten over there. I don’t know if you will all be able to hear this radio show without having to fiddle about with the links on the webpage a bit to get options for your country, but here goes the link anyway:

They also discuss the Facebook and Cambridge Analytica story, for the three people in Ireland who don’t know about it yet.

Here’s another radio show, this time the Zero Books Podcast, which gives an insight into how Irish journalists perceive US politics. Anna Neagle writes for one of the National Newspapers, The Irish Times. Her interview starts at around 11 minutes in. I’m not saying I agree with her, as I haven’t even heard it yet. But I know people love de bitta de Irish brogue, so dey do, so I included it here.

Now this idiot here (the one on the right; we know Hillary is on the left)…….

Tubs_Clinton

…….I am pretty much guaranteed NEVER to agree with. I can’t stand even the sight of his ugly little mush, so I can’t, not at all, at all. An’ dat’s a fact. He is a total mouthpiece of the state, and hasn’t an original idea in his head, that he thought up without first considering the size of the paypacket that would result from holding that view. He absolutely loves Hillary Clinton, and recently got an opportunity to metaphorically kiss her powder blue behind. He took loads of photos of it to put in an album to give to his mam, so he did. Brace yourselves for incoming sh*te. This guy is so stupid he doesn’t realize he’s insulting her to breaking point. You’re a granny, love. Get your rocking chair out.

Jaazus. I’d love to do the Graham Norton ting with the two o’ dem, on the big red chair, where he just pulls the ejection lever when their story gets boring. Neither of them would last a second, and they are both so horrid that I would enjoy de laugh when dey fly backwards and de knickers show, like Mrs. Brown.

I can’t guess where all this right-left polarization will end. Not to mention all the shades of grey in between. It’s all a mess, but there are a few who reckon they’ve got a few answers to the mysteries, and have worked out their own answers to the riddle, like Denise from Natural Orchid Crafts. Let her break it down for you. Her latest theory is that it’s left, right, and Alex Jones the figurehead, directing the action.

So glad I could do what little I was able to in clarifying the mystery for you. Now back to my book. Can’t wait to see how it ends.

The Creepy Online Family That Wanted to Adopt Me

AdamsFamily

The following is an online publication outlining the political/educational aims of The Family, a marketing company that recently tried to recruit me, originally through YouTube, then  via their sites and on Facebook (see my previous posts that tell the full story here and here) using weird deep marketing techniques.  Are they the new army of moderators that YouTube has employed, I’m wondering? They make up a huge network, with head offices in three European locations. Their Facebook community lists 44,000 follows.

By the by,  I also got hacked after visiting their sites – just sayin’!

Let’s see what courses one of their founders, Oosama Aama, can offer you, if you don’t want to start work for them immediately, but wish to get educated by them first. Like their conferences, their courses are free. Isn’t that great? And there I was thinking there was no such thing as even a free lunch. Here’s a course outline. Sounds interesting; very in-depth. You should be quite able to handle that new job at The Family after doing their course.

Digital, New Technology and Public Policy
General Objective
The Digital, New Technology and Public Affairs Policy Stream prepares the next generation of actors to leverage the nexus of interactions between exponential technologies, public affairs and civil society. The digital revolution is transforming the inner workings of our economies, businesses, democracies, social models and public affairs. The aim of this policy stream is to understand the evolution of economic and human activities that are direct results of digital technology and to explore the regulatory measures to be taken by public policy and civil society.
This stream addresses several key questions: How can we enhance the positive impact of emerging technology to address humanity’s main challenges, including equal access to education, renewable energy and global health? How can we minimize the negative externalities of such a process on individual freedom, inequalities and data privacy? How can civil society and public policy harness the power of machine learning to bring about a shift from the public good to the common good?
The program offers the necessary pluri-disciplinary and holistic approaches needed to fully consider the economic, legal, social and institutional transformations brought about by exponential technologies:

The economic and human resource dimensions:
a micro perspective on the digital transformation of the industrial sector and organizations (including private businesses and public administrations); a macro perspective on the global causes and consequences of the  uberification” of the economy, and the tension that is emerging between new collaborative economies and established digital monopolies, such as Google.
The legal dimension of tax laws, intellectual property rights, and redefining potential
structural shifts in the labor model and standard employment contracts by taking into
account task fragmentation and unpaid work within the scope of a producer-consumer
system.
The social and institutional dimensions: social welfare 2.0, health care 2.0, democracy
2.0, citizenship 2.0 and more generally, government 2.0.

Sunday Sermon, anyone? Secret Jesuit Teachings

The greatest cross in the world is to be without a cross’. These are the words of the famous Jesuit preacher Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, a popular lecturer on a wide range of topics. Bishop Fulton’s humour  and knowledge on a wide range of insightful topics made him popular with Sunday Catholic TV audiences in the 50s. His series of shows begins with a sermon on

‘HOW TO PSYCHOANALYZE YOURSELF’

Bend the knee, pull up a pew in the comfort of your own home, and get ready to take notes (or just write the best jokes down; you’re allowed laugh in this chapel), because I guarantee he will hypnotize you with his riveting sermons. Or just switch channels and watch cartoons instead.

Reality Hacks 101 – Fear.Inc’s strategy to keep you online

Octopus with earphones

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.
