There is no subversion of the system as an individual only as a group otherwise you are a mentally unstable person mooing at the dmv. The only non cooperation is non participation for the individual unless they are participating in the frame work of a subversive political party. If you participate in the system as an individual no matter how much you would like to think otherwise you are perpetuating that same system. Sure you can say things like "I'll take it down from the inside" but in reality you are just endorsing the system by participating. Much the same was as entertaining ignorance in debate gives the air as if two opposing views have equal merit. When that is not the case at all. The entertainment of the view lends it legitimacy. Such is the case with the social constructs that we participate as individuals in our day to day lives. It is the participation that validates them. This is something that good rational men just can't seem to wrap their heads around. If you want to change the system you either have to form a group by which the power of subversion is amplified (ala ows) or you have to drop out of the system cause there will be no reforming this system we are in or both.

Yehaw folks!!! Just look at the way they jump on you and downvote you if you actually say something radical here!!!

An eye opener, isn't it?

I got jumped on right off the bat, and have already been downvoted a hundred points.

Think this is your forum - think again!

It's all about the money boys. Go on posting, but don't believe ANYTHING you see here!

Aw, it's not that - just trying to point out the Concerted way this happens.

I hope you know what I mean.

[+] -6 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Yeah, I thought that was weird too. I got voted up really high, and then down a whole bunch of points. But the thing that's really weird is the uniformity of it. I've noticed that before. Somebody is precisely managing the scores here. It ain't random. It's part of a larger effort to manage the content of this forum.

[-] -3 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

It's all too clear. I think this forum still might do some good in spite of it. That's my hope anyway, but after this attempt I won't bother anymore.

[-] 3 points by Renneye (3652) 1 year ago

"It's part of a larger effort to manage the content of this forum" "Its all too clear".

Many here can't see through the haze. Why don't you spell it out for them.

I'm fucking pissed off now, I started out trying to be diplomatic, but I'm fucking pissed off!!!

The revolution needs to start on this forum if you ask me!!!!

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Due to the habit of some members here not being happy with just the one ID, there's a general air of suspicion surrounding anyone new appearing at this forum. I guess you've just got to tough it out for a few weeks, or not. It's your choice, of course. And you're right about the points thing. It's too bizzare to even enter the thought process, so it's best to just ignore it.

[-] -2 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

So much for solidarity and communion among friends. Lets just rip each other to shreds here. That'll show um!

It is becoming a bit crazy, yeah. I try to rise above it.

Doesn't always happen, but I do try.

[-] -3 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Marvelous to watch how this thread is gradually being managed to be in line with the established narrative.

The right number of points, the appropriate juxtaposition of comments, the right removals and deletions. Pretty soon it will be very inocuous. It will fit the narrative.

Whoopiee!

[-] 3 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Well, back on topic. I did a small business course run by the govt many moons ago, and their advice regarding paying your bills to corporations and utility companies, was to withhold payment until threats of legal action, so that is what I do. It takes no effort at all, causes a minor shitstorm for them, and possibly creates work for a third party.

How's that for non-cooperation?

[-] 1 points by HCabret (-327) 1 year ago

I love you!!!

[-] -2 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Aw, come on folks, lets have a little fun talking about Action. The little things we can do in our day to day lives to undermine the corrupt system - isn't that what this is all about?

No, these instances don't come to us easily anymore, and that is a great part of the problem. It is in the small ways that we can really work to undermine the system, and when we do it, it's really fun. We can chalk up a small victory for ourselves, and savor it.

When we start thinking about it, you would be amazed at the things people can come up with! I like putting chewing gum in survellance cameras. Since when were we supposed to be watched all the time!

[+] -4 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Yes, but we have a right to not be surveilled. It is that whole thing about being innocent until proven guilty. I don't have a problem with the use of these cameras in very specific instances, but the whole notion of privacy is at stake today, and we should enforce that right, with chewing gum even, if necessary.

[+] -5 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Good one . . . I like! This takes a little time . . . people have gotten used to compliance as a mindset, but when we set our minds free to invent - you''d be amazed at the possiblilities.

This is serious. This is what Ghandi meant by passive non-cooperation. It is, when used by multitudes, a powerful tool for people's self protection from tyranny and to create solidarity.

It's silly, in a way, and fun . . . but also serious.

Good, but I think we should be aware that certain possibilities might fall under the broad definition of terrorism. LOL. I really like the little things - really little things - things that in and of themselves would be too rediculous to even bring to court, and the prison system is already too overcrowded to bring people to court for mooing in line.

The truth is that there are a myriad number of ways we behave every day that signal our compliance. Perhaps we should explore little ways that overtly signal non-compliance. The possibilitues are endless, and only limited by our own internalized social control.

Let's have a party. Let's release our inhibitions a little, which more than anything are what keep us repressed.

It's an idea anyway.

I can't see how this thread could generate this kind of opposition from anyone who really backed this movement.

Stuff your stupid links. Speak for yourself, if you can. Don't go attaking people the way you did me just now for no legitimate reason and then try to sweep it under the rug when you can't justify yourself.

I ask again, who's girl friday are you, really?

Pfft . . .

[-] 0 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

That's just sad GF. I'd expected better of you.

The only thing that separates you from the 1%, if there is actually a separation, is your views.

In every other way you are alligned with them completely. You are competitive, aggressive, condescending, overbearing, excessively entitled, controlling, vugar, and in every other way exibit all the noble traits of the 1%.

It's clear that if you aren't there yet then that's where you are diliberately headed, even though maybe you don't know that yet.

The sickness is a state of the impoverished soul, which is far worse than being impoverished . . . far, far worse.

The substance of a person isn't in their mind, but in their soul.

It seems that you have a wee leetle bit of work to do in that area.

We won't talk again, it's a waste of time.

I've always paid a heavy price for thinking outside the boxes.

[+] -5 points by LittleMatchGirl (-143) 1 year ago

Okay, I lived in one of them, Michigan, for ten years, when the whole labor movement was being sold down the river. I sat in a theatre in Michigan to watch Roger and Me - that was empty except for me, my wife, and a couple of members of the 1%, and we damn near got in a fist-fight on the way out. I've been a progressive left-winger for 45 years. My father was a progressive left-wiger who paid the price by getting kicked out of his job as a newspaper editor in 1949.

You can't tell me anything about substance.

I know what group think is, and I know what censorship is - and I find it really damned strange that I'm having this conversation with you right now.

OWS is a dictatorship set up to further GirlFriday's agenda at the expense of everyone else.

She has a group of mindless followers who blindly listen to her every word and then march to tune that she cant stop whistling.

People (not you) are afraid of freedom.

Forget it, just forget it. Anything but breaking down conditioning and comfort. That only comes in the despairing end - when we finally have the walls of the ego ripped from us and realize that we could have forged a community of resistance.

I can't believe this post encountered such resistance Here,
