We live and die under the carceral gaze. Obey, or be Punished.
We have done this to ourselves, in the name of progress, safety and civilization. I can only wonder at the folly we might be regarded with, if we ever make it so far as a species to recognize it.
The carceral gaze. The all seeing, all judging eye of the Zeitgeist, lingers heavy over all of us. Man is born free, and yet everywhere he is on camera.
Technofascism marches on.
War is Peace.
Information is Ownership.
Ignorance is Strength.
Yes we can.
Yes we can continue the same foreign policy agenda that has made the world less safe, and put everyone in massive economic depression.
Yes we can continue to ignore the Bushisms that many people vocally hated but now ignore.
Yes we can continue to support our President while ignoring the war-crimes committed by our administration.
Yes we can ignore that “cybersecurity” is double speak for “knowing everything about everyone at all times. Even, forget all about the troubles of an increasingly expanding surveillance and intelligence market for spying on citizens in their own homes.
Yes we can mutter under our breaths while recognizing that “speech crimes” on the internet have become the pretense for any state-based aggression for not liking what someone writes or says.
Yes we can hope, we can hope that there’s less blood on our hands than our conscience, our deep underlying humanity, tells us there is, as we give thanks for an empire built in blood.
Yes we can change anything we want, so long as it’s superficial, arbitrary, and dictated to us.
Yes we can, even ignore and refuse to acknowledge that “freedom” is just another buzzword in these here United Dictates.
Yes. We Can.
War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.
