What do I mean? When you rage against the machine, you fucking point out to everyone that there is a giant machine that can only be challenged by full-throttle rage something nine out of ten people are kind of too laid back to actually do. Have you seen that Tumblr baudrillarrd where this is matched up with the monkeys from ? Probably some stupid fake fucking device like a digital camera.

The nuclear is the god-like exultation of simulation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The same perfect model now governs social life as well. Victory or defeat matter little at this point.

Disneyland, dude, fucking Disneyland. You ever think of that? It perverts a basic reality you airbrush her and make her tits bigger in Photoshop 3. Los Angeles requires all of these absurd attractions to distract everyone from the fact that it is less grounded in reality than the fantastical movies that they shoot there. That is so rad.

Like they really cared about the Tasaday. Really, the object of study is in control because as soon as you start to study it, it just fucking dies. They build a fucking replica meters which are a little bit bigger than yards away.

Do you know what increases faster than our stockpiles of weapons? All of those are parts of this horrible meltdown.

“The Precession of Simulacra” by Jean Baudrillard – a summary

In the not so distant past, the ideas of fucking and working were very different concepts. Fuck that, it fucking transcends the Left and Right. Future generations will end up remembering the copy more than the original, so both are kind of useless now. And this happens just as two giant satellites are fucking right above their heads. The best example, I think, is the Vietnam War. And they fucked on purpose! Behind all those old pictures of God, besides the back of the painting and the wall, is the ghostly shadow of politics.

Tell that to George Oscar Bluth. Poor bastard is getting eaten not only by worms, but by science itself. I mean, even for Americans, they acted pretty uninterested at the loss of that war. All Western religious faith, or faith in general, was stupid because the dumbass masses believed that a picture of God could give somebody the divine orgasm of spiritual connection.


Power is no longer present except as a sign to hide the fact that there is none. To be frank with you, there is literally no difference between what you are doing and what somebody with a real gun is doing.

No, strikes are simply a part of the work scenario today in the same way that future uselessness is part of every electronic device, like crisis in production.

This imagined real, which we falsely believe to be actual reality, is what we lose when we move into the third order of simulacra, that of simulation. A digital picture of something, idiot. It was a simulation of scandal so that the fiction of morality versus scandal could continue to thrive. And while this is happening, another type of power comes into play: This page was last edited on 13 Decemberat Do they not want power because it would kind of be lame to be a Leftist with power?
