In America— Cruelty is when you enforce adherence to some sort of formal ideal of civic behavior, Benevolence is when you protect transgression against all formal ideals of civic behavior.
The Chinese are Cruel when they “brainwash” their subjects into adhering to their formal ideal of civic behavior (especially when those subjects are CIA trained islamo-separatists)— Americans are only Cruel if they *don’t pretend to care* about it.
Everyone who is “against their national-formal ideal of civic behavior” is “an american in waiting”— the traitors of each Sovereign Nation State are Liberal American Global World Trade Patriots.
So— it’s not a surprise when the fragmented vestiges of “the ideal republican american civic behavior” — in being more Nationalistic than World Federalist— becomes enemy number one.
This is what differentiates BLM from MAGA— BLM is an acceleration of Liberal World Trade Federation subjectivity (“we have to include everyone in our global calculations”)— MAGA is a rejection of this (“we only need the idea of True Patriots, our Formal ideal of civic behavior”)

Most people don’t want to read Joyce or Pynchon et al because they had classical educations & play with multiple networked allusions to obscure biblical, kabalistic, hermetic, pagan, historical, musicological, philosophical, etc concepts figures events & persons in a single page.
The Proteus section of Ulysses for example is a history of western epistemologies with extremely specific allusions that if missed render the whole scene pointless because it’s literally just about “becoming able to write/read such a sequence & understand it”
When Pynchon connects Wagner to the Third Reich to the Rockefellers to Auschwitz to Disney World in one scene— that’s a topographical map of historical developments which become meaningful when taken apart & put back together by the reader— otherwise “lol Rocketman stole weed”

No one reads anything at all so most people have developed a form of discussion in which specific references to texts/authors are considered rude to the extent that the answers would require familiarity. Talking “around the books” is preferred. Talking about “your feelings” best.
You’re trained this way in school anyway— you don’t get asked “how does Faulkner develop the novel” you get asked “how does Faulkner speak to contemporary discussions of race & your feelings about that discussion” etc
The concept of formal rigor, or formal innovation/development, is considered a false framing, & that “development” is a critical projection that isnt evident in the text, & that all art is basically “intuitional feelings dumps” — the curtains are blue because he felt like it.

The reason why “white male authors” & “boring white guy movies” are castigated has nothing to do with ideology & everything to do with the laziness of “critics” who need all art to be paced like an episode of The Office.
You learn this hermeneutic so that you can blackmail professors into giving you a pass for refusing to do the reading— that’s its sole utility in life.
I’m not doing the reading because it’s offensive to me that I was asked to— instead I shall explain why it’s counterproductive to do the reading when I could be scrolling my timeline & watching TikToks & “worrying about politics”

See we needed Democrat Bush so that we could get Republican Obama so we can have Democrat Trump so that after that we can have Republican Democrat Trump & then finally what we all have been waiting for— Democrat Republican Democrat Trump.
Clinton? Don’t you mean Democrat Bush?

Obama? Don’t you mean Democrat Bush?

We got stuck in a cycle, but finally we can complete the system when we elect Democrat Republican Democrat Trump in 2036.

Lib Metaphysics is the assumption of the Individual before Society-- whereas, in my view, the Individual is a consequence of Society-- & that there is no "prior relation" to the social-- Language is my model here-- there is no "Individual Language" qua Wittgenstein
Governing on behalf of "Individuals" is really an opaque way of "Governing on behalf of a Society which produces Individuation"-- this would be the Bourgeois Market Society-- one is an individual, first, when one is in the Market-- not ever before this.
The "Common Coinage" of Language is my bedrock here-- Language is a collective "public works project" which nobody owns, everyone uses, & which founds the basis of all cultures, even "individuating" cultures-- the debasement of Language is the debasement of humanity.

You guys really need to stop saying "Medicare for All" because that's already a Neolib Technocratic Compromise position-- & it isn't Universal Healthcare-- & it doesn't dismantle the Racketeering & Criminal Insurance Industry.
Nationalize Insurance-- that's what you want-- that's what Insurance Corps don't want-- they have no problems with M4A at all-- in fact, it gives them even more bargaining power to expropriate wealth via taxation.
