Violence against bitter differences -- Violence... AND bitter differences.

I was lurking about the bowels of the internet’s intellectual realm, a place that I’ve silently observed for over three-years now, but rarely ever spoken about; I speak of 'The Dark Forum,' if you lot aren’t aware, already. I have recently found that a centrist theme has become the common trend on this board, and I’ve quite literally, seen it culminate right before my very eyes, because I’ve honestly been following the group dynamic of this massive community for nearly six years now; three years being the latter half. I can’t say I blame them, either, but I was shocked to find them bickering over concepts where progressive thought was needed. I found certain Americans who were trying to come to terms with the notion of all-out genocide against the Islamic bracket, which was a bit much. However, I will add that I didn’t entirely blame them; hell, I even empathised, but with personal disgust.

Therefore, I decided to finally break my three-year long silence and voice some contentions, because that’s what I am: a fuckin’ contentious, contemptible prick! One such thread commanded a rather solid response, and one that I’d consider blog-worthy. You see, I toppled on the flavour of the month debate, a.k.a, controversy over the fuckin’ cartoons of Mohammed. Yeah, real cute! The debate branched out into a fuckin’ semantic bitchfest over the word violence. Idealists whined that it can’t be an integral part of the advanced and awesome human psyche, while pessimists contradicted their stance by conforming to the traditional and somewhat existentialist view of human nature and struggle; something that I often agree with in theory. As human beings, we do have awesome potential, but our individuality and selfishness has pretty much been exploited for the worse by our own egos and we have a whole history to back up such a negative outlook. I shall stop with the digression and move straight to my response, which first addressed the bickering about the word ‘violence’ and then my broken-record of a mantra against how conventional Moslem psychology is simply incompatible with the modern-day, humanistic school of thought that the secular west rightfully subscribes to.

Now, this point attached well to that thread, but it also attaches well to most of my own readers, some of whom I‘d consider idealists in their own respective capacities. Let us settle the case regarding violence, and face the fact that we’re all quivering about the same point, but actually under the dispute of semantics. Call it what you wan't; Dyshade's (a member) using 'violence' for its very conventional meaning, which means any act that is essentially violent. This isn't necessarily discounting, or adding to the intent or reasons behind the action, but merely referring to the description of the violent aspect of the most actions.

It's not an overstatement to say that there is no such thing as humanity without violence, because violence is part of the human condition from our evolutionary struggles all the way through to our still having to come to terms with the concept of civilisation and order. By this very proxy, the acts of aggression are essentially violent; whether they’re instrumental or hostile, they remain violent. Humans ace both forms, and are somewhat connoisseurs of the latter category; we are probably the only species prone to exuding truly spiteful aggression, otherwise dubbed 'hostile aggression' by most social psychologists.

You may call it whatever y'want, but point remains that the follies of greed, hostility, and individuality-bred conflict are essential pillars of the human psyche, and thus, a great argument used by the proponents for what they consider often-justified acts of violence. Only difference: most critical thinking idealists try to find solace and closure through justifying such acts and attempt to shift the fallout away from the word 'violence'. Unfortunately, they try to use justification as a conflated cover-up for all out omission, which is the disingenuous flaw at play. The justification for any act of violence can be as valid and essential as possible, but this still doesn’t discount anything from the actual, raw ‘violence’ of any given act--it doesn‘t negate the act itself.

Violence in itself can never be defeated. It's a tool, and is merely used by the winning side to methodically eliminate its opposition. There are also those that chose to abuse their own utility of violence. Therefore, the violence is not the concept being defeated and neither the desired concept of defeat; sometimes, a crude and violent ideology can be defeated with use of counter violence.

As for humans being the only one's with awareness. Well, this is merely our own spiritual arrogance at play; however, probably one with accurate basis. This still doesn't change the fact that we're probably the only species that are now the epitome of unnatural integration; we rarely adapt through accommodation, because we're busy manipulating our environment and assimilating at best. A higher state of awareness may command that we sort our ways, but apparently, it’s only perpetuating our own ability to coerce nature, thus far. Moreover, we seem to be utilising most of our higher thoughts and even spiritual humility to actually justify our crude acts, even abrogating our so-called moral compass in the process.

Returning to the nucleus of this topic:

I’m telling you lot this, right now! There is no fuckin’ compromise with these pretentious twats (the fundamentalist Moslems). None of it! No offence to this forum’s member base, because I am horrifically contempt ridden against the entire mire that is the Islamic culture. I need not digress with this personal and somewhat first hand hatred. Those who know my stance know it well; I despise the extremists like a malicious plague. At the same time, I feel that the pitiful and poverty ridden bulk of their populace are merely passive extremists who’re just unconscious puppets, waiting their ‘awakening.’ As for the so-called moderates, I think they’re wimps who can’t come to terms with the savage nature of their religious culture, and live in a paradox of contradictions while trying to get along with the rest of the world--utterly useless.

“Oh but do ya’ know any of ‘em?”

Inside out! Hell, I even know critically progressive Moslems, who’re about the only bracket of this creed’s populace that earn my respect. I keep them out of my aforementioned contempt; and no, I do not view them as Moslem’s, because their naturally progressive views contradict much of their religious norms, cultures and the fuckin’ Sharia doctrine! Ask one of ‘em about the Mohammed cartoon that's got the entire Islamic world in barbaric fits and they’ll be sure to have a good laugh.

It’s real simple, the holier than thou Moslems can ponder the following points:

- They’re culturally conditioned to persecute pagans.

- Their religious ethos encourages, and in some cases, commands the execution of apostates; so much for a one-sided freedom of faith.

- All they can do is present contradicting quotes from their books, as a worthless and pointless apology and exercise in futility that demonstrates the inconsistency of the book, and ideally reflects in the identity crisis suffered by its followers. 

If it is all about peace and asserting passive enlightenment, then how the fuck do these morons stand by the slew of religious laws that their theocracies preach so wholesomely? Are they even aware of how many innocents are being set up for life sentences for merely having disagreement with the tenets of their officious creed? They also claim that their extremist colleagues are right, but just going about matters the wrong way. So, is stoning innocent people for exercising their essential human volitions a ‘right’ thing? Are they just using the wrong type of stones?! For fuck's sake -- we're just grasping at straws now!

It’ really doesn’t matter; the core of their religious system is built on different blue prints. They don’t consider the sanctity of every individual, and thusly so, will never find remote compatibility with the rest of the world.

"Questioning facts is how one learns. Questioning the Koran, questioning the Bible. Questioning reasoning and motivations. Unless we brainstorm and look at some seemingly silly questions we will repeat our mistakes and learn nothing new." - Retorded By A Member

That is exactly what the controversial cartoon did on many levels; it questioned their reactionary nerve, and the results speak for themselves. That is what I psychotically devote myself to doing, and will someday end up executed by a terrorist state, or just smeared by the barbaric third-world Islamic public’s sick take on legitimate persecution. You wanna' drop the bomb? Sanction full genocide? I wouldn't agree in spirit, but then again, a few days back I thought it to be the only solution. Therefore, while I criticise the pro-Western extermists from loathing the entire eastern Islamic bloc to a degree of massive generalisation; I still don't quite blame them for harbouring such profound hatred against the said bloc.

Though the rhetorical question still haunts my conscience:

"Have you really degenerated to a point of justifying genocide, even if it means the demise of other humans in a divisive frenzy of friendly-fire for pro-western idealisms?" -- The question presented by my own conscience, and my own ego. However, for once, both realms are in agreement. How the fuck could that've ever happened?

As already stated elsewhere on the same forum. This must be the psychotic fringes of my ego, musing away, but I am actually in partial sympathy with this genocidal nerve that the fringe movements in the west have begun to develop. The notion isn't progressive by any margin; it's sick and a mark of humankind's pathetic desperation. Hell, it even implies threat to my own sanctity and idealisms since it's just as bad a position as most of the barbaric notions preached by doctrines like Islam and Old Testament Christianity; but I really see no other way in this current conflict of civilisations. Aye, I've gone bat shit crazy!

Whatever, I’ve already expressed volumes of political incorrectness on the matter. On the good side, I am still glad to know that The Dark Forum has its legion of progressive thinkers who will effectively cancel out my insanity of a contribution towards the human paradigm, as well its own element of trailer park trash ignoramus folk . On the other side, cynicism is at an all-time high, and I am just as guilty as the next bastard of perpetuating this counter-constructive thought cycle.

Stay cool, fuckers.


“We need more cartoons! Yes, I'm being spiteful. However, they [The Islamic drama queens] should learn to look away or retreat to their private domain. Therein lies your problem: They [the Islamic fascists] treat the entire world like their private, theocratic domain. The apologists say that they don‘t impose their beliefs on others, but in reality, they do impose their religious expectations and values--such as superficial pride in 'prophethood' and god--on everyone everywhere. To say otherwise is fuckin' denial of reality at its most basic form. So y'know what, bring on the fuckin' piss christ, and bring on the cartoons! WE NEED MORE!" -- Closure.

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

…I find my intellectual capacity being greatly threatened under the sarcastic glee of a challenge; am I just being neurotic? Heh.

Unfortunately, I lack the resources to offer an equally well-honed rebuttal, so I shall skip ahead to a serenading poem of my own.

We continue to bother,
Enduring the bitter grief,
Using means to smother,
Heathens with our belief.

Confronting the cynical mockery,
My insights grow bleak,
Critics dub this hypocrisy,
But I laugh it off, and turn the other cheek.

“May I suggest that you do everything in your power to honor your encyclopedic/omniscient Designer/Architect as well as your revering audience.” - Dr. Howdy

Ah, but good doctor, I’m doing just that; I do honour myself, and with great pride; and now I find a divine grin breaking across my face just as I get away with such a contentious response.

Let this not slip into spite, however, because I do appreciate your efforts, Doc; despite the tax that this ordeal took on my dignity.

These are things that you could not survive without. They include, of course, food, water and shelter. Even here, these should be at a minimum. Thanks.
