So if Noam Chomsky says, "here is how Consent is Manufactured," but doesn't explain how HE is manufacturing anyone's consent nor what HIS biases are, has he explained

how the world works

or

how to work the world?

Chet Redweld said...

As Syd Harrington says,

an eye for an eye for an eye for an eye

and I lied and I lied and I lied and I lied

Paul Behrer said...

Ah, that's not all that clear to me, Chet.

Let's try another. So, if Glenn Greenwald says, "here are the EXPLOSIVE documents of the Snowden Treasure Trove, which I'll release in small amounts so as not to BLOW YOUR MIND with the EXPLOSIVE nature of the trove's contents,"

has he explained

how the world works

or

how to work the world?

Chet Redweld said...

Greenwald - He hasn't explained either one, Pablo, but maybe he's showing how HE works the world.

Chomsky - Same deal.

Paul Behrer said...

But people say each of them is Teaching Us How The World Works, Chet. What's up with that?

Chet Redweld said...

What do YOU think is up with that, Pablo?

Paul Behrer said...

I think Montgomery County MD public schools would praise each of them as a courageous truth teller who offers valuable lessons for future contemplation.

Harold Caidagh said...

Not without ancillary lecturing on Evil Rethuglicans Who Are Racist White Misogynist Patriarchal Cis-Het Homophobes, the presence of whom in our society shows where America needs to progress.

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Or a new "Sex Ed" curriculum with lab practicals in which the students are encouraged to try same-sex copulation/self-gratification-in-tandem.

Paul Behrer said...

"See, Class, when TRUE HUMANS enjoy sex, they enjoy it with the SAME GENDER, and that is how we keep the population of Racist White Misogynist Patriarchal Cis-Het Homophobes in consistent decline."

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

If it feels good RIGHT NOW then it's GOOD FOREVER!

Harold Caidagh said...

Where will Gay / Lesbian Couples get the children they want so badly to imprint?

Child & Family Services seizures of offspring?

Paul Behrer said...

Hal, you idiot.

This is why PANSEXUALITY is supreme. Mercenery fuck for procreation and eventual tyke imprinting is SUCCESS, you idiot. XX+XY-->offspring, for the eventual progress goal of EVERY CHILD PANSEXUAL -- THAT right there is a huge win, bro!

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Ya gotta wonder why Hollywood and MadAve want to sexualize children at such an early age.

Maybe it's because both places/entities are full of paedophiles who'd like less pushback when trying to "teach" the young'uns about the pleasures of an Older Human As Sex Partner, especially an older docent who wants to help the tyke lose virginity.

Harold Caidagh said...

OMIGOD, it's GROOMING when a Christian talks about sexual morality with children, but it's HEALTHY AND NATURAL when Hollywood tells 8 year olds they should be twerking.

Paul Behrer said...

Totally unrelated:

I mean, seriously: this can't be related!

I don't know how this stuff manages to get discovered or reported, it's obviously totally fabricated!

Paul Behrer said...

I'm sure this guy was just trying to build more PROFILE with "negative publicity" since Hollywood considers all publicity "good publicity" --

Also, don't try google-ogling the E Wood story, none of the links to American publications will work. Apparently E Wood has redacted, recanted, rephrased, reworked and rethought everything and now whatever he thought he knew from first-hand experience is a lie because the ones he's suggested as guilty don't like to work anywhere but behind the scenes and under cover of darkness, metaphoric or otherwise.

Gosh. Clearly we should say all religions are bad except Judaism. Look at the results!

Harold Caidagh said...

Maybe E Wood should have let them all schtupp him in every orifice, then he'd get more Leading Roles?

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

This is why Glenn Greenwald went to Brazil. Nobody in Hollywood found him valuable in any capacity (too old, too schlubby) when he tried for a script writing or set dresser position, so he did the most logical next thing: sing Boy from Ipanema while booking a trip to Sao Paolo.

Harold Caidagh said...

Hollywood was where he found Fast Eddie Snowjob, hawking his amaporn nonsense and trying to be "discovered" while pretending to be The Dreaded Hetero by frequenting strip clubs and taking a stripper as his "girlfriend."

Chet Redweld said...

Just a reminder, lads, that certain currents within that slowly moving water of the Capitol Swamp have been, are and will be stumping like a prop-rooted cypress to find discussions like these evidence of domestic terrorism.

Maybe this is why Mark Tushnet's now doubling-down on the ringing of that same bell.

He's getting support from the governor of the State of New York, who has signed into law (as Executive Order) the declaration of State Commerce Power war against anyone who dares to support BDS, with a legislative history found here:

https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2015/s6086

https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2015/s6378/amendment/a

and an Interested Party position statement offered to NY state legislators:

Given these rough seas I'd suggest you lads don the foul weather gear and watch for oversplash, swamping and turtling.

Chet Redweld said...

Of course, whether BDS is anything of any motive power is a different question entirely. Perhaps this is a long con, in which feigning opposition to BDS is actually endorsement of BDS for the simple reason that BDS is a surrogate for actual Federal Government Disbursement divestment, and Federal legislator boycotts of foreign aid to Israel.

The sanctions part is I think obvious, from what Mark Tushnet has been clanging about.

Harold Caidagh said...

How terrible it must feel when the jig is up on your grift. Enough to drive one to violence, I'd suppose. Though probably through assigned thugs who either are well-paid to, or even in the absence of reimbursement still do, enjoy terminating the life of another or severely debilitating that other's future enjoyment in some way or another, ranging from the more passive-aggressive technique of economically squashed existence to actual sub-lethal violent acts.

Everyone's desperate and trying for their last packet of power, eh Chet?

As a group, I think the transhumanist libertarians and uber-progressive Democrats (including those who claim separatist status while pinching nostrils and voting D) will be the most sorely disappointed in the reversal that seems due in short order.

Perhaps Israel will see a massive uptick in immigrant application. Since they're conditioning it on Judaism follower status faithfully demonstrated, that's also a big win for Team Star-of-David.

Of course, there's no "religion" in any of this. Judaism isn't a religion. It's simply the only way any human being should live, or else not be human.

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Judaism isn't a religion. It's simply the only way any human being should live, or else not be human.

Making Israel the center of all rectitude in the national/collective view of Israel & Judaism, while the behavior of Israel and its "brook no naysayers" approach reveals a self-image pipsqueak passive-aggressively acting out the jealousy held toward the RC Church and the Vatican's nodal power for RC people.

What was that thing about Kryptonite someone said in another thread?

You can see why seis puntas sent Krakauer to write about the Mo-Mos.

Eliminate the opposition.

Land in Utah is cheap. Cheaper yet if you get the LDS folks put out of office with deep-well campaign spending, blackmail of adversaries/supporters, or getting the Federal Government to find all non-Jewish religions to be evidence of domestic terrorism.

They really did admire Joseph Goebbels and Co., didn't they?

THey call that a "loss leader" in business strategy.

Lead with a lie, always lead with a lie.

Now 35% OFF Store-Wide!

(which is 35% off of a price that was bumped by 45% anyway, and that 45% was the pre-existing gravy margin, with "gravy" meaning free and clear of all overhead otherwise on the books of the business or the wallet of the biznissman)

Harold Caidagh said...

Hey Karlos, why so many blanks?

What about quasi-religions, like

Faith in Progres
Faith in Human Ingenuity
Faith in Technological Remedies for Everything
Faith in an eventual Transhumanist Existence

??

Paul Behrer said...

the 1-s'd Progres, it's a beast
the 2-s'd Progress, it's a Priest
not ranking them from most to least
the 3-s'd Progresss will leave you fleeced

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Pablo's got a nice distraction there, Hal. But to answer your Q, the blanks are there for these divisional cults:

Hal @ 11:14 AM on June 3:

Hal, you sneaky bastard, you said you hadn't read any of Corey Robin's work. Clearly you've read enough to know what he says over and over and over and over.

What did Chuck call these people? "Splitters"?

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

Corey's mind: "I'm helping them see the world clearly."

Corey's heart: "I'm helping rid the world of Christians and persuade people to follow, ultimately, Marxism to Leninism to the First International to My Revolution and solidify the thought that Judaism is the One True Way."

Paul Behrer said...

Never let Corey try to connect with His Hated Adversaries. That's not part of "what's best for everyone" in his socialist view.

They just get purged. That way, no accommodations/sacrifices/agreements have to be made or struck.

My way or the highway.

We are the tolerant.

We are THE PROGRESSIVES.

Prof. Corey Robin, leading expert on being an expert said...

There's no commonality. There's just Good Guys and Bad Guys.

That's what my father taught me, that's what my rabbi taught me, that's what my graduate advisors taught me, that's what my book The Reactionary Mind will teach you if you'd have the courage to read it.

What you need to learn is that I climbed up to this little titmouse nest and I'm safe in here, I can pontificate like any stupid Pope and if people in America are going to become fully human, they first have to reject any ideas about that stupid Pope or any other leader, and stop listening to anyone besides Yahweh, the local rabbi, or well-educated and highly respected university professors such as myself.

You cannot expose yourself to the Reactionary Mind. It will corrupt you and make you think the worst way for you to go is away from what I'm trying to teach you.

I think you need to listen to Andrew Cuomo and start singing a different tune here, Mr Tin Ear.
