It's Not 1984 Yet!

Mood: Unclear
[Toot!] Index: 3.2
Communism Bit: On
Location: Job, of course



My Mama says I am `all heart and no brains'. That I am a fanatic, once I choose something. I think she's right. Back then, Baz told me: `You think you're moderate, but you're an extremist.' Again, that sounds true. And then, the latest, Kenyanchick said (here) `... I doubt that 27th is capable of making a respectful, coherent and logical argument.' Hehehe. Well, again, I agree.
Mostly, I will go off at the beak screaming propaganda for the effect on me and the surrounding. And you know, one of the basics of Newspeak in 1984 was speaking without thinking. Duckspeaking, you know. Doubleplusgood.
Still ... until the Americans stop supporting a certain issue, I will oppose it (from the heart, not the head) as part of the anti-Imperialist struggle. Come, O Great Revolution. If I involve the head, I may side with the 'Mericans. Not good for the Revolution. Still ... I'll try sanity next time.

And if I want to get laid, I better wise up—girls generally don't like a guy who thinks summary executions are sexy. Who supports, for captured spies, a firing squad then a trial. No telling what kinks he may reveal later on ... :o)

Funny that Baz and Kenyanchick echoed exactly what one of my two angels told me. The angel that sits on my right shoulder, called Ange au Droit once told me to `think, think again, then talk'. The angel on the left, called Jude is his younger sister's opposite. He replied, in that same argument, that `Before you're done thinking, the Americans will have brain-washed another potential fighter ... propaganda is all that matters for now.'
You'd think I shouldn't trust Jude, since he leads me to more trouble than smiles, but he feels (to me, anyway) like the voice of reason. He has an abrassive personality, and often crosses over to the right to make his sister cry. I separate them (one of the reasons I always grew big hair was to keep a barrier between Jude and Ange), and Ange complains in sobs, sometimes I pocket Jude, I promise to keep better watch ... and it happens again, when I put Jude back on the left shoulder. (They are the size of a thumb, and weigh nothing.) But besides that, he's practical and pragmatic. Right now, I don't have them both.

Last Wednesday, Jude harassed his sister, so I put him in the pocket to stop the war. Sadly, I forgot to remove him from the jeans today, when I was taking the clothes for washing. I remembered after getting here, and I ran back. Ange was really worried. I ran over to get my jeans, and found them already soaked in detergent. I checked, got him out, and left them both at home, Ange trying to help her bro recover from the shock of cold detergent. I'm sure Jude would have said `No, let's leave her there and see what happens ... experiment, you know.' He's weird like that. But, at least, now he will learn the dangers of disturbing Ange ...

(Also, my argument has been redeemed. Women make better teachers. Why? Because smarter humans make better teachers. It doesn't take a lot of brains to be on top during sex—or to be a war-monger, for that matter. But it takes refined minds to make great teachers. Men are inferior to women.)

Did Ugandan bloggers think that these rednecks had their best interests at heart? Think again. If you think Indians are nasty, then you haven't seen redneck institutional racism proper and how whites benefit from it.

They will keep on telling you how to think and what to think ad-nauseaum.

As if the US and South Africa are not examples enough

@Anonymous: Wow. Much force. Un-named comrade? :o)
Actually, I understand that behind everything American lies the perverse drive to widen the empire. Most of these Americans down here are unknowing foot-soldiers. They think they are spreading `democracy' (they never visit Guantanamo Bay to deliver lectures - always that rotting hell-hole called Afr-something). They think they are talking about human rights (again, not in Guantanamo Bay or in the ghettos of NYC, or even burning their great-grandparents portraits, those un-repentant enslavers). They think they are doing the Good Thing. That is why I don't think it is fair to attack them. They are merely brain-washed repeaters of propaganda. In the end, it is imperialism. If this had been 200 years ago, America and Britain would be freezing our accounts if we were not homophobic absolute monarchies with a slave class. They make us copies of themselves - which is bad, because they are evil.

Okay. Now I'm starting to sink into angry incoherence. Shite. Later.

How does propaganda work when so many have access to many-to-many near instantaneous media?

Propaganda lends it self well to top-down media.

It seems to me that 27th comrade is acknowledging that conversations via blogs have an effect on him.

That cultural imperialism is so hard to dissect from the issue of gay rights is just a sorry state of affairs.

I'm happy that the 27th comrade knows that same sex love in Uganda exists outside any foreign introduction. And I think he's right that how such love should be treated is a matter of Ugandan culture. And that the 27th comrade sees culture as a dynamic process--constantly in flux.

So I wonder what irritates him so much about Ugandans in SMUG? It's one thing to resent foreigners telling Ugandans what for, and quite another for Ugandans to actively participate in civil discourse. It seems worth listening to what gay Ugandans are saying.

Of course this comment is from a white American--me--so that self-righteousness the 27th comrade points to does sting me.

But that's the point: In dialog, in many-to-many conversations propaganda isn't so easy to control because people are always being influenced from many directions.

First off, you know you're my boy, right? OK.
I don't condone violence of any kind, and I know you didn't literally mean 'let's line up all the gays, put sacks over their heads and shower them with bullets'.
I don't hate Americans or Europeans. But I do hate the way foreign aid has evolved to become this animal that cripples initiative among Africans. I hate that we are told: these problems are your priorities and this is how we (the West) are gonna fix them.
I have seen too many white elephants in my day to continue being impressed when aid flows in.
If Africa is left alone, there will be a coasting effect: things will get worse before they get better. Sometimes I think it will be worth it for the long-term gains, other times I think no, the price paid in terms of human lives will be too great.
Better to struggle on with this aid (a new form of slavery in my opinion - cripple the African's creative capacity and they will depend on you forever) business.
That said, I don't think the solution is to replace white supremacy with black supremacy.
And finally, moderates define extremists. One is irrelevant without the other. So bring Jude back to life. Angie will keep him in check, never fear

@John Powers:
Propaganda here will work. Because if people listen, people will think. Imagine how the gospel - a very admirable result of bottom-up propaganda - became the state religion of an empire that had been persecuting Christianity the day before. We know who to target, and we are sending the signals - heck, even subliminal messages :o) - to where they matter the most.
You said:
`But that's the point: In dialog, in many-to-many conversations propaganda isn't so easy to control because people are always being influenced from many directions.'
Oh, yeah? Do you know why the Americans saw Esquire shooting pool (second-last comment) and were shocked? Because they expect Africans are only skilled at starving, and stuff like that. Shooting pool, for Jah's sake! It is because they are brain-washed by insistent American propaganda. In an age of the internet and TV, they don't have a clue what happens beyond the American rubber curtain. See this page, on Noam Chomsky's Propaganda Model Theory.

And, yes, homosexuality is in every society, just like any other virtue or vice. But the acceptance of homosexuality is not in Africa, particularly in Uganda. This is what should evolve on its own. Currently, it is being pushed by the 'Mericans, and therefore it becomes a valid, vital, valuable, and prized target of all who are fighting American imperialism. So, yes, even though I am not logically homophobic, I will be emotionally homophobic, to fight the arm of American imperialism.

@Fujitsu:
Wow. You prowl these quarters at odd hours ...
Look, there will be trouble if we break free from the West. Slaves face death in their first time of freedom. They don't know the outside. Babies are in graver danger after birth before age five than at any other time. When you leave your parents' crib, you have a hard time (and even rethink your move, I guess), but things normalise later. What we need is the steely, grim verve of `Forward, No Matter What, On To Bright Freedom'. It will be fuckin' hard when we break free of the Western Downpressors, but freedom can't be traded for convenience. And the hardships are only temporary. Let's martyr ourselves for a Freedom that lies ahead. No, we don't want to create Black Supremacy - we can't replace the Devil with a devil. All we want is self-determination. And the Americans don't want that - they want an enslaved continent. And slaves breaking their chains is the scariest image a slave driver can have. A Communist revolution (repressive, even?) will provide the steely forward march we need to get past the swamp.

Come, O Great Revolution!

PS: Jude is recovering, but it's taking longer than I thought. He really got a wash-down, literally.

feather said...

tumwijuke said...

27 - on the teacher/men/women argument ... who exactly are you trying to suck up to?

Say me. Say me.

Elle B said...

Thanks for that little comment about women at the end. I keep forgetting. Brainwashing, I guess. Could u explain to me what native americans are still doing in reserves? Shouldn't they have been liberated eons ago? Am confused. Thought you might know.

Duksey said...

Men are inferior to women hmmm... not bad,not bad at all.

GERALD said...

Men are inferior to women?

Manda said...

eddiie said...

You put Jude in the pocket for all that long? For harassment?
.LOL...

But all people differ.Some just tell you the point in little less than 10 words while others make sense in the 999th word...

eddiie said...

@Duksey? Can i hear you shout out that loud again?

@comrade....may be you answer Duksey well..i may not be objective,....

lulu said...

Duksey said...

What happened to BHH? Thought you were the custodian

eddiie said...

@Duksey? custodian...? Just good will.Isnt it Comrade?

Esquire of the mountain said...

I know am late in this comment, but well Angie and Jude are a nice twist, where have you been friggin hiding them, detergent? hmmm, and pray do tell me, are they communists with socks and boots too?
Of course in regard to the American propaganda and other machinery, you know increasingly i agree with you, we need to probably martyr ourselves for a couple of years, all African powerhouses have seemingly had to go through this refining fire, unfortunately us Ugandans want to remain in the comfort zone being given irrelevant titles like beacon of africa, thats just fattening us for the kill!

Omar Basawad said...

You may have many detractors, and many opposers, and I too might disagree with some of your ideas - but man - your posts are some of the best and most thought provoking out there in the 'blogosphere'. In relation to Africa.

'....homosexuality is in every society, just like any other virtue or vice. But the acceptance of homosexuality is not in Africa, particularly in Uganda. This is what should evolve on its own.' DITTO. I wonder, can they accept our custom of polygamy?

They don't want us to evolve on our own; as always. Good or bad for us, they want us to always ape from them. Note: even when many of their own conservatives are trying to find any means or ways, to reverse the acceptance and spread of homosexuality - they still want to force that on us.

Can those guys at Google choose your site as one of the most 'Interesting and noteworthy Blogger-powered blogs' out there? They should. If they are not that biased.

I agree with your Mama. And tell Jude that you can't be brainwashed unless you let yourself be brainwashed and to stop being so paranoid about the Americans and the Imperialists.
