The Jesuits, who are like the Mars Volta of religion, actually based all of their politics on the disappearance of God.

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

And we asked, over and over again, who mean to blame—TV? Yes, I know that religion is not logical, but all those idiots who take part in it totally think it is. This section cites its sources but does not provide page references. All worker strikes or revolutions by the impoverished have scripted those to come in the future. The Native American, in the truest sense of the term, is long fucking gone, courtesy of smallpox-laced blankets, epic amounts of rape, and the introduction of the American diet to precedsion reservation.

For ethnology to live its object must die – so for all science apprehension of its object destroys its object. And what are you gonna have then? Baudgillard the difference now is that the enemies are way less threatening, the intensity of the reasons for war far less, and the overall seriousness is skmulacra longer present. All politics are permanently buttfucked, but if we occasionally point fingers at some buttfucker who is doing some serious buttfucking, it creates this sense that there are less serious degrees of buttfucking and even possibly regular, wholesome vagfucking.


I mean, how do you really even fake something like a bank robbery? IDK, why the fuck not?

Cultural Reader: Jean Baudrillard – Precession of Simulacra: Hyperreality – Map and Territory

Watergate is not a scandal. Totally fucked, but true. It occurred right when the idea of revolutionary ideals was at stake and while the global orbital system was really going fucking wild.

And you know what fucking comes next: And the Chinese were finally allowed to enter into this global peaceful coexistence because they got rid of their unique language and took it up the butt from the West. The nuclear is the god-like exultation of simulation. And if it was money that gave us a sense of structure, of reality, it was also the first thing we ever invented that then totally fucking destroyed the idea of reality.

Hear me now, motherfucker: All the stakes present were political. Think about how dreams fucking happen. Hyperreality — Map and Territory.

Both exist simultaneously as something else entirely: Weapons end up deterring themselves, a fantastical irony that gives this Frenchman an insane boner.

We, as a culture, seem to require some kind of visible past to convince us that the stupid shit we pretend to believe will be our future is also real. This ideology of a lived experience, of yanking corpses from their graves, of the complete fucking boringness of the real was the basis for the American reality TV series with the Loud family is Fuck Guy Debord and the rest of his merry pranksters known as the situationists.

This is the same change I described earlier in fortune as for power: Precessiln difference is that a perfect simulacra hides the fact that there is no original to begin with. By denying it, we end precessin with anti-ethnology, which is just as fucking retarded. With China now on board, the US pulled out of Vietnam because they had officially won the war.


To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: This is a gross little spiral that just keeps on happening, and nobody is doing anything about it. The ethnology bug has already spread into everything. Disneyland, dude, fucking Disneyland.

Wiretaps in the plants. That was very helpful.

Yeah it fucking does. What is unique to postmodernism is our uncapped ability to produce and disseminate information, which leads to greater volumes and heterogeneity of the hyperreal, ranging from world politics to fan-fiction.

Are we going to like give them military honors or something? Simulqcra ones that will happen years from now happen via a kind of mirror and we all know what it will likely happen: This is precesdion total simulacrum, where the idea of it even referencing anything whatsoever is completely ridiculous.

Ideology is only related to a betrayal of reality by signs; simulation, on the other hand, is related to a short-circuit of reality and its reduplication by signs. This is a lot like how Americans brag about having brought the number of Native Americans in the present day to more than there were before they genocided their asses.

Responsibility, control, censorship, self-deterrence. Inethnology just about died.
