The trouble with Woke entertainment is, even when it is trying to tell a story, which isn't always, it is also, while the story is trying to draw you in, jabbing you in the ribs with an icepick, again and again and again and again. If the story is somewhat good, you might try to put up with the icepick for a while, or watch it in small doses to minimize the stabbing pain.

Usually, "fuck it" is the right response, though.

A quaint anachronism.

We rarely see this "there is no right and wrong on values, just facts" anymore.

Partly because it is incoherent. Truth is an all or nothing sort of thing. But also because the modern form of this is to make the Nietzschean move of transposing "value" to the domain of the Will.

But once the will is in play, we learn quickly and to our cost that the will is ARBITRARY.

Not bound by truth, the will constructs its own reality.

In order for a behavior/form of life/language game to serve as a criterion, one must be able to know what it is/to identify it.

Behavior, for example, takes place over time. Since Wittgenstein rejects immediate perception, appeal to behavior requires that I retain this in memory One cannot observe a behavior in an immediate instant, since in an instant, nothing happens. So one must grasp the behavior over time. But that means one must retain the actions of others in memory, which Wittgenstein has deemed unreliable.

Looks like the House resolution condemning Critical Race Theory says 3 things about it.

Let's look.

1 CRT and its derivatives is a form of Marxist ideology

Well, that one is just true. Image 2 CRT is in direct opposition to the founding ideals, way of life, and form of government of the United States

Since CRT explicitly calls all three of these racist and demands they be abolished, yes, this one is also just true. Image

ImageImageImage Wittgenstein's case that private language is impossible goes a fortiori for public language, since I cannot know what anyone else says or means much more than I cannot know what I say or mean.

Atheists hate God.

It isn't that the don't believe in Him. They hate Him.

The proof is that they never reject the God worshiped by the faithful, but they always try to tear God down with impotent words. They always speak of "god," as if God could be diminished by being denied a capital letter. They call God a "sky daddy" or "sky wizard." They engage in theology and scriptural interpretation—badly—to try to "prove" that in which they say they do not believe is unworthy of belief.

Jordan Peterson - Ben Shapiro - Lessons Learned From Beauty and The Beast youtube.com/shorts/qwjLwuS… via @YouTube @YouTube I want to add that the reason the story of Harley Quinn and the Joker works so well, is that it is a quintessential female tragedy.

Peterson is right that the female hero myth involves civilizing a dangerous man to become a protector (of the woman and her children and the home).

Green Arrow: This whole thing might just prove the kid shouldn't eat nachos before bed.
Question: Peanut-butter sandwiches.
Supergirl: How did you—? Do you go through my trash?
Question: Please. I go through everyone's trash. The Justice League Animated Series version of the Question was one of the best version of the Question ever.

A mixture of the brilliant voice actor, Jeffrey Combs, and writers who knew how to lean into a good thing they didn't fully plan — as also happened with Harley Quinn.

Again, correct.

Thinking is Not Easy youtube.com/shorts/LhLYarB… via @YouTube @YouTube Peterson paraphrases Jung:

For most people what they call thinking isn't thinking so much as:

"A thought shows up in your mind and you believe it."

This is the rather sad manner in which many people form their beliefs.

Concerning the 2020 election and "January 6th"

In our democratic system, the rules and justice dictate the following

"The person who gets the most legitimate votes wins the election." Now, because fraud and error and corruption are possible, it is also possible that this fails to happen, and that a person who did not get the most legitimate votes is installed in the office instead.

Sex corresponds to biological reproductive capacities.

If gender is a thing at all, it is tethered to sex.

But we have established that "gender identity" does not correspond to sex or to gender (if it corresponds to sex). The whole point of "gender identity" is to be AGRESSIVELY UNREAL.

It is an anti-concept, one actively hostile to reality.

It is a kind of adolescent declaration that the facticity of my sexed body has no power over my free-floating, autonomous self.

Although it does anyway.

Imagine a society in which people believe they each have an inner "color identity" and go around telling one another "I'm a green" or "I identify as a red."

This is purely a language game with no real trait or property corresponding to one's "color identity." Nevertheless, many people in this society deeply believe that their "color identity" is not only real, but somehow their deepest "inner truth." They endlessly discuss the differences between different color identities (like people discuss zodiac signs).

But none of it is REAL.

My list Some of these require skill on your part to use.

Like, why did I put the land-squirts at A rank?

They are the tankiest summon of all. They each have like 10,000 hp. So they *will* put a poison cloud in an area and they can't (practically) be got rid of.

The things you name are either not actual threats to America or are wholly unreal.

NAME the "fascist threat" to America. Who is it?

You'll either have to lie about it being fascist for it to be a credible threat.

Or a real fascist group and an utterly negligible non-threat. Wokeness is parasitic and an enemy even of yours.

Many of us are highly skeptical that "climate change" is any kind of serious threat. But anything you want to do about it in today's climate will involve Woke "climate justice" — and many of us will fight it by all means.

To say that there are objective and eternal moral truths is not to say that everything in the realm of ethics is wholly static.

Actions are specific and thus always have specific circumstances. Moral principles are general, and must still be applied to specific circumstances. "Stealing is wrong" is true even when "Bill stole Amy's purse at 2:24 PM, July 18, 2022" is an event which has never happened before in all the world.

When gaps in the wall is the thing that makes the wall unfinished, filling in the gaps just is the action of "finishing the wall."

KJP claims they are not "finishing the wall" -— because they aren't painting it yellow? Who know? Biden is filling in at least some of the gaps. I suppose you could say that you are not finishing the wall because you are not filling in ALL the gaps.

But this raises the question of why you would fill in ANY gaps, if a wall with gaps is fine as is?

If filling some of the gaps is good, isn't filling all of them better?

This idiot thinks he is better than other people because he's a moral subjectivist.

But of course, if there are not objective moral truths

* "better" means nothing
* anti-intellectualism isn't bad, because the intellect isn't good
* being an "incapable sheep" isn't bad * "standing for something of your own volition" isn't good (and this point is stupid, anyhow. Does he think acting morally is involuntary?)
* killing your family because some god told you to (or for any other reason) isn't bad

How full of MORAL JUDGMENT our "subjectivist" is!

Atheists who run this "The Bible 'condones' slavery" shit never seem to notice that abolition falls directly out of the two commandments

Love your neighbor as yourself

and

In everything do to others as you would have them do to you

It's not even hard deduction. And I remind you that atheists have no moral basis upon which to condemn slavery at all.

Atheism destroys the roots of any possibility of any moral condemnation of anything.

Since,

And Jesus answered him, Why callest thou me good? None is good, save God alone." There is something entirely absurd in trying to forward (or really, even entertain) the proposition that "God is evil."
