Oh for fucks sake. Just let a meteor hit us and be done with it.

As long as we have a nondiscriminatory naming system for the origin of the meteor. Would be problematic to use Greek terms lest they be blamed. “alpha Centauri” always reeked of classism, elitism, and systemic oppression.

And even if the meteor comes from a binary star system we should allow that perhaps it could be a non-binary star system.

As a gay man (fortunately in a monogamous relationship), I think the idea of stopping casual sex for a few weeks is not unreasonable at all. In fact, I've warned a few promiscuous friends that they might want to lay off it for a bit.

As for stigmatization, anyone who thinks that the fact that Monkeypox came from Africa is somehow stigmatizing of Africans is more of a racist f*ck-up than one can possibly imagine. These "anti-stigmatism" folks are showing more racism than a KKK meeting.

i can only assume that it is because they would argue there is a difference between being 'blamed' for an innate state of existence (i.e., race) and actively choosing not to have a SAFEANDEFFECTIVETM medical procedure. if one refuses the latter of that list, shun away my dear friends for they are the devilspawn.

Still waiting for that crowd to say we shouldn't blame random gun owners for spree shootings. Or random heroin pushers for random overdoses (or maybe fentanyl is more in the now?)

Or random [insert term here] for random [insert event here].

Random gun owners and random heroin pushers are not equivalent--random gun owners have nothing to do with spree shooting; heroin pushers, random are not, do have something to do with overdoses.

Jun 14, 2022·edited Jun 14, 2022

Yeah, but I was going for the very common rethorical artifice of trying to evade and obfuscate an issue by stapling "random" and "not all" to it.

Like the difference between "Raccons spread rabies" and "Random raccoons randomly spreads rabies". The first sentence carries a clear message of who and what, which leads to the thought to several possible ways to respond, handle and care about the topic; the second one just makes it all into random occurrences with no agency and no actors involved, meaning you will have trouble to formulate a response to the topic, especially a contextual one.

This is intentional to prevent action from being taken: what we become conditioned and inured to react to and think of as random events striking randomly, fully lacking agency, we will also refrain from thinking up solutions to, eventually not even reacting to the events as wrong, fixable or problems.

Look at the language used on any issue where people in charge doen't want to do anything: it's always random, passive and made to make the thing seem like a natural occurence. The point is to keep their backs clear and us impotent.

Edit: oh, and it would be very easy and obvious if one had that agenda (I don't) to point out that both the pusher and the gun shop can say: "I just sell this stuff, it's not on me how it's used", yes? That's another beaut of semantic judo, because a good refutation pointing out the insididous blending of the metaphorical and the concrete in the simile would become a mini-essay or else fail to attack both avenues: motte&bailey-strategy I've seen it called in US debate-techniques a decade or two back.

Jun 14, 2022·edited Jun 14, 2022

Gun shop, as in your second example, would havde been a more analogous comparison to a pusher than gun owner. Another example of what you're talking about would be how the mainstream media all reported that a car plowed into people in a parade. As though the car had a mind of it's own, like Christine. Because the identity of the driver didn't fit their narrative.

Expand full comment

Yep, that's what our state-media reported about the terrorist-attack (the racially motivated murder of innocents): "The car mysteriously lost control".

Passivum, random, no agency, no causality.

We had such an attack in Stockholm a couple of years back, when an illegal moslem drove a lorry on to a walk-only street and murdered several people, including children. That the EU's lack of border control, swedish migration policy since 30 years, and lots other issues was the reason this man could be in country at all? Silence.

Instead, it got blamed on poverty and racism. Meaning any swede asking "How the Hel could he move about freely and work illegally, after being denied entry and after police and migration authorities had been made aware of his whereabouts months earlier?" got smushed as a racist by state and regime loyal privately owned media.

Can't have agency and causalty, as I said - that means it's someone's fault and that it can be taken care of.

Permanently.

It’s following the HIV playbook in which Africa was supposedly blamed and Africans but in reality it was homosexual men that really were quietly blamed outside media narrative.Once the hemophiliacs began to acquire the virus ,then it had a safe victim class to push forward.Ryan White ,probably in  retrospect the “victim of “ media created hoaxes was pushed forward.Tge Monkey pox needs it’s victim class outside homosexuality and it’s Ryan White to move forward.It’s not the 1980s and top down media is having a harder time creating narrative.

Event 201. Late 2019. Simulation of a novel CoV emerges in China & spreads round the world.

Jan 2020. Actual outbreak of novel CoV emerges in China & spreads round the world.

May 2021. Simulation of a MPX outbreak, starting May 2022.

May 2022. Actual outbreak of MPX across several countries, in exactly the month in the simulation. Do note, there’s NEVER previously been a multi country outbreak of this virus.

Some might be willing to look past these two wild coincidences. I’m not.
