Anarchism/Anti-State

Whose side are you on?

It’s always funny when people jump the gun and assume I’m some sort of conspiracy theorist or something like this. I’m interested in that stuff because we have 20 million people in the US who believe the ruling class is trying to kill us. That’s kind of interesting. And while most of them are right-wing Christian nutbags, doomsters, home brewed weirdos, anti-abortion fanatics, homo-under-every-bed anti-gay hysterics and, whatever else, I’m still interested in the trust issue. Once a person learns that their officials are straight up shills, liars, quacks, and self-serving scumbags, then it becomes increasingly difficult not to harbor increasingly-damning suspicions about what else these weasels might be lying about (9/11, moon hoax, “chem-trails,” etc.) I defend those people not because I believe in such conspiracies, but because I believe that if US authorities continue to lie, cheat, and treat certain sectors of the public like shit, whacked out populism against whacked out Officialness is where we’re headed. The rise of bonehead alternative media, insane conspiracy theories, and anti-elite fear mongering serve as an example of what a total collapse in the implicit trust relationships between the upper-middle/ruling classes and the lower/working/middle classes would probably look like. If that kind of stuff weirds you out, you should probably side with the Establishment.

  1. Jacob sounds pretty hysterical himself.

    “I believe that if US authorities continue to lie, cheat, and treat certain sectors of the public like shit, whacked out populism against whacked out Officialness is where we’re headed.”

    Here Jacob sounds like he’s gearing up to launch a write-your-congressperson campaign to restore “good government.”.
