Guy Debord was right
Guy Debord was right
all of these people glued to their phones, watching netflix, engaging in promiscious sex imitating their favorite sex scenes in porn, I tell ya, they're absorbed in the Spectacle
Weak thread as these people would be shilling for McLuhan
Epic memes fellow redditors
If Debord makes the shills mad then that can only be good thing.
why yes, I am a situationalist marxist who wants people to forsake consuming things products they enjoy and instead live in medieval poverty because it is more authentic
I bet you bought a ticket to the emoji movie
holy shit dude you destroyed him
The spectacle is capital to such a degree of accumulation that it becomes an image.
debord's theory of the spectacle is actually pretty reasonable if you replace marxist class analysis (social "science") with race analysis and evolutionary biology a la Kevin B Macdonald(hard science).
Basketball is not a collection of jams, but a social relation among players, mediated by Michael Jordan.
Best thread on lit right now
race analysis a la Kevin B Macdonald
why do situationalists fall for such obvious bait so easily and autistically
It's a fedora meme thread, the bar is basically as low as it can get
The spectacle that can be named is not the true spectacle.
Though separated from his product, man is more and more, and ever more powerfully, the producer of every detail of his world. The closer his lif come to being his own creation, the more drasticallyis he cut off from that life.
68 hippie hedonism can only lead o a dystopian society ruled by jews. we need less 68 and more 1933. Why does the spectacle seem so focused on pushing all manners of sexual depravity, homosexualism, transgenderism, mass migration and islam then? could it be maybe it's not 'capital' that's the problem?
I dunno. I think Debord consistently gets proven right
Because they want the widest possible demographic to consume what they're proffering.
The impulse to focus on Jews, while correct in pointing out that people like the Rothschilds were/are a problem, is mistaken in attributing their characteristics of greed and manipulation to their ethnic Jewishness, and neglects the fact that Caucasian capitalists like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet also act "Jewishly".
Stars — spectacular representations of living human beings — project this general banality into images of permitted roles. As specialists of apparent life, stars serve as superficial objects that people can identify with in order to compensate for the fragmented productive specializations that they actually live. The function of these celebrities is to act out various lifestyles or sociopolitical viewpoints in a full, totally free manner. They embody the inaccessible results of social labor by dramatizing the by-products of that labor which are magically projected above it as its ultimate goals: power and vacations — the decisionmaking and consumption that are at the beginning and the end of a process that is never questioned. On one hand, a governmental power may personalize itself as a pseudostar; on the other, a star of consumption may campaign for recognition as a pseudopower over life. But the activities of these stars are not really free, and they offer no real choices.
*takes a big ol drag on my cigarette*
well well well kid, youve got some strong opinions, good for you
but I gotta question to ask.
how much is your opinion worth when it really matters, how much is your opinion worth when you're hiding in the long grass with shit running down your trouser leg hiding from six heavy brigade combat teams, the elite of the elite, everyone of them with your scent and flashlights running through the grass, as you try to stay still and keep your breathing slow and pray you wont shit yourself again, you pisser how much is it worth then
how much is it worth when you're in a bunker with african drug lords, with your own guerrilla army bombing the bunker with your own supporting artillery, including MLRAs and Big Sisters.
how much is your opinion worth when it really matters, how much is your opinion worth when you got three palestinian ket-troopers brandishing rusty machetes eyes popping out there skull, you've used up your whole magazine, not missed once, these drug-scrambled f*ckers are still coming, riddled with bullets and actually seeming to *get off* on being shot, how much is it worth then you f*cking soup sandwich
these are the kinds of things i saw when i was out doing mercenary work. im six foot 7 and i know krav maga, how many marial arts do you know manlet, you wouldnt last a f*cking second in the veldt
sitting there in your college dorm listening to modest mouse and the shins and you DARE to criticize my fav writer
