funeral_holmes: “My solitude doesn’t depend on the presence or absence of people; on the contrary, I hate who steals my solitude without, in exchange, offering me true company.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
funeral_holmes: “Most civilization is based on cowardice. It’s so easy to civilize by teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to bravery. You restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of chaos. You teach even the children to breathe slowly. You tame.”
— The Stolen Journals
funeral_holmes: Suffering makes you live time in detail, moment after moment. Which is to say that it exists for you: over the others, the ones who don’t suffer, time flows, so that they don’t live in time, in fact they never have.”— Emil Cioran, The New Gods
To believe the way to happiness is to keep ones heart “pure”, mind free of gross impulse and vice, living meekly and simply enjoying a brief scatter of sunshine is folly. Unless of course you are of the privileged minority who by mere happenstance can afford these luxuries due to social and economic standing. To abandon self, live in a humanistic fashion and pursue an idealist dream will leave one trampled under foot , unaware and apathetic to the oncoming misfortunes the world has in store for you. You shall indeed live a fretful and powerless existence, having little control over your own actions in the face of this oncoming beast known as modern civilization, defenseless against the will of other men. Principles and ethics will be dismissed quickly in the face of true personal catastrophe,your will to live and base survival instincts crippled by your hapless delusions and weaknesses. Your transgressions handicap you. To say one does not care about the needs or desires of other men may sound ignoble, yet you are expected to cater to and live according to the desires and demands of other men , to in fact serve them, in order to simply exist above ground in society, amongst the other “living” participants in this facade. To expect other men to care about ones own personal needs like food and shelter or ones personal desires is ludicrous and unrealistic unless you can enforce your will upon them or have been catered to most of your life. “Social Darwinism” seems to do alot with resources and currently, money. Generally anyone who expects others to care about their supposed needs to survive or existence altogether would be a fool, or someone privileged enough to have been born on the outskirts of the eye of the storm. Your ideals mean nothing , they are merely personal manifestations existing in your hallucination of grandeur and immense identity crisis you call your “individualism” or “self”. All the ideals, morals and beliefs you have subscribed to, believe in and supposedly adhere to will crumble at the first sign of true danger. Not a threat to your comfortable principals or way of living, but your life. You were bred, fed and led this way, mute and cripple to the worlds advancements against you. One cannot blame someone for seeking comfortable shelter if it is afforded to them. Yet it is said that the truth is always dangerous, mainly because it is savage. And you, “my friend”, are merely a tamed beast.
funeral_holmes: The very foundation of the modern world is about granting a small percentage of the population extreme power and today it ultimately comes at the expense of the world and all it’s inhabitants. Excluding members of society from the decision making process, mixing military and corporations with government, this is fascism in a nutshell. Today it appears that we live in a negative utopia, our lives used against us, existing in a hopeless malaise, in an increasing alien world dictated to us. The world can no longer afford to pursue the dreams, desires or demands of the rich or those who support this method of living, or this parasitic , dehumanizing, destructive culture that has spread like a plague. This empire is against human progress and the creative will of the individual man, there is no evidence in documented history to the contrary.Your Institutions, History, Religions, Sciences,Models of Civilization mock me and my existence as a human being. I desire to forget you entirely like a bad memory. You cripple and eradicate ideas and people opposed to your mythology and oppression. Our dreams are separate. I dream of a fine day, from the ashes of your dead culture a new man evolving,no longer blighted by your visions. I long to actualize my dream and turn it to reality, to step over your old rotting bones buried under the sediment.
