View Full Version : Smell the Fear™


The Good Reverend Roger
October 15th, 2008, 01:19 AM
After all the ranting I have done about The Conspiracy™ and The Machine™, it occurs to me that I might have forgotten to mention one critical thing: They fear us. Yep. We scare them silly. Not because we're physically intimidating, or because we're armed (even though both are true of some Discordians, and some are even worse)...but because we're unpredictable.

There's really no way to know ahead of time how a Discordian is going to react to bullshit. We might lash out in spectacular vengeance, or we might chuckle and shake our heads. We might jump up and down, hooting like monkeys, or we might take the offending thing and "improve" it. Or worse, we might just ignore it (granted, this is rare), or simply laugh our asses off.

The second reason they fear us is that - because we ourselves are such great bullshit artists - we are damn near impossible to fool. Dress a greyface up as a Pagan, and we'll sniff him out. Dress a drone up as a "liberal" or a "conservative"? We aren't impressed. Because we understand. We've seen what Robert Tilton saw, just before he went mad and ran naked down the street, screaming that rats were eating his brains. We know the face of degeneracy. So you can understand that we aren't terribly impressed by the shit that They™ use to fool the rubes.

The third - and main - reason that they fear us is that, deep down inside, they know that we are laughing at them. We are laughing at their cars, their McMansions, their "fashionable" clothes. We are laughing at their silly beliefs, their ridiculous, contrived religions (whether they worship Baby Jesus, or some stupid fucking "neo-Pagan" bullshit). For we know that worship is for monkeys, and superior mutants need not the fear of the Gods. We have no Gods but Eris, and no salesmen but "Bob", who is her prophet (or profit, as the case may be). And believe you me, our made up entities can kick their made up entities' asses any day of the week.

We laugh at their schedules, their meetings, their Feng Shui. We laugh at their makeup, their silly belief in a "government", their insipid, white bread lifestyles. But mostly, we laugh at their FEAR.

Yes, we laugh at their Fear. Their weak-kneed, pance-poomping terror...whether that terror be of dirty Ay-rabs coming to kill them and make their children GAY, or fear of the Big Scary Black Man™ and his gynormous penis, coming to take their women, or fear of Gay folks getting married just like real people, we despise them for it, and we laugh in their squealing, bewildered faces.

For they are heathens, and they deserve our scorn. They had a chance to be BIPEDS, Bobdammit, and they chose instead to hide in their respective dream worlds, jabbering about silly made up shit like "Gaia" or "supply-side economics".

Oh, yes, they are afraid of us. They fear we superior mutants a great deal, indeed. For they see that we are not afraid. They hate us for this, but they fear us more. We weren't purged from the Pagan community because we broke their silly little rules. We were purged because we spoke the Hideous Truth™ in broad daylight. In front of impressionable children (and retards).

And they - all of them, not just the Pagan retards - are becoming more afraid, as they learn of us, and as they learn that this really is OUR century. They can see that the world they know is spinning hopelessly out of control, and all they can hear is our mocking laughter in their ears, as we move OUR ideology in, to fill the void left by their broken and discarded beliefs.

For this IS our world, now, to have and to hold, to play with and throw down the stairs, to build or destroy at our whim. They ARE afraid. They will be MORE afraid, as we let the happy-go-lucky mask slip a little more each day.

And they SHOULD be.

Or kill me.

I wasn't attacking either. I think that for some it could come off as a bold declaration of superiority moreso than a challenge to question oneself. I think the latter was more the intent, but the writing seems to suggest the former. There's a few other rants he's written that have given me a similar feeling, but this one was moreso than those. On the whole, I'm prone to really enjoy Roger's rants. However, I can see how roger daruko historical friction would get ya going down that train of suspicion. Hello, I'm Daruko, I've been told I communicate a little brashly.

No, actually it was the former. I AM a superior mutant, and so are the people I am writing to (yourself included). I have long since completed challenging myself...Conclusion? I'm an asshat. I'm comfortable with that.

Yeah, I agree. I think you could pose some of this in a more logical, critical format. I mean why do you believe the way you do, especially about those factions you are lashing out against? It sounds a bit preachy to a choir that I'm not privy to. Give us some of your positives on beliefs instead of taking cute little phrases of those beliefs you dislike and assuming that we dislike them as well. Your critique is flawed, my friend, merely in that it bashes, rather than explains, makes fun of, rather than offers alternatives or answers to "whys."

Give us some meaningful arguments for your frustrations, instead of citing clever opposing catch phrases that you seek to critique without offering your own solutions to the problems they are attempting to address. It appears you are looking for the easy laugh rather than a true debate about the issues.

Monkeys exist to be made fun of. You take a monkey that climbs out of the trees, builds nuclear reactors and reusable spacecraft, and STILL flings poop at each other over imaginary bearded guys in the sky, and then tell me why I shouldn't dump all over them.

Solutions? I'm only in it for the lulz. I don't wish to SOLVE the monkeys' problems, because they'll only find more ways to fuck up (and those ways - if history is any guide - will be WORSE), and because I hate them.

Cynical realism is the intelligent man's best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation.
Aldous Huxley

I don't know why I still miss your schtick. I should know better by now.

Perhaps it's my prison that sometimes steers me moar towards inspiration from art and literature, rather than more cynicism. I'm a cynic and I enjoy cynicism (your cynicism sometimes, as i've mentioned), but at a certain point, I feel like I have to feel something good about the world... beyond the putrid smell of brain sewage, layered underneath all that fecal decay, I'd still like to discern that sweet smell of orchids... I identify with another Huxley quote where he says:

The finest works of art are precious, among other reasons, because they make it possible for us to know, if only imperfectly and for a little while, what it actually feels like to think subtly and feel nobly.
Aldous Huxley

Ever identify with that, by chance?

This is where you always leave me hanging. I don't get the superiority thing... what it amounts to. Either it's a metaphor, or you're really that arrogant, or something else. I've never quite figured it out. Same reason why the Principia gives me a warm fuzzy feeling still, and the BIP kinda makes me want to scratch my ass. Some of the newer texts from the Discordian community come off to me as much more condascending than the older ones, and I've never seen the benefit of the additive. I don't doubt I'm missing a point somewhere... being a cosmic schmuck is what I do.

Maybe if I ask the right question? At what point does one consider oneself a "superior mutant"? It seems to me that most of the "superior mutants" I encounter still run on auto at least some of the time.

After all the ranting I have done about The Conspiracy™ and The Machine™, it occurs to me that I might have forgotten to mention one critical thing: They fear us. Yep. We scare them silly. Not because we're physically intimidating, or because we're armed (even though both are true of some Discordians, and some are even worse)...but because we're unpredictable.

There's really no way to know ahead of time how a Discordian is going to react to bullshit. We might lash out in spectacular vengeance, or we might chuckle and shake our heads. We might jump up and down, hooting like monkeys, or we might take the offending thing and "improve" it. Or worse, we might just ignore it (granted, this is rare), or simply laugh our asses off.

The second reason they fear us is that - because we ourselves are such great bullshit artists - we are damn near impossible to fool. Dress a greyface up as a Pagan, and we'll sniff him out. Dress a drone up as a "liberal" or a "conservative"? We aren't impressed. Because we understand. We've seen what Robert Tilton saw, just before he went mad and ran naked down the street, screaming that rats were eating his brains. We know the face of degeneracy. So you can understand that we aren't terribly impressed by the shit that They™ use to fool the rubes.

The third - and main - reason that they fear us is that, deep down inside, they know that we are laughing at them. We are laughing at their cars, their McMansions, their "fashionable" clothes. We are laughing at their silly beliefs, their ridiculous, contrived religions (whether they worship Baby Jesus, or some stupid fucking "neo-Pagan" bullshit). For we know that worship is for monkeys, and superior mutants need not the fear of the Gods. We have no Gods but Eris, and no salesmen but "Bob", who is her prophet (or profit, as the case may be). And believe you me, our made up entities can kick their made up entities' asses any day of the week.

We laugh at their schedules, their meetings, their Feng Shui. We laugh at their makeup, their silly belief in a "government", their insipid, white bread lifestyles. But mostly, we laugh at their FEAR.

Yes, we laugh at their Fear. Their weak-kneed, pance-poomping terror...whether that terror be of dirty Ay-rabs coming to kill them and make their children GAY, or fear of the Big Scary Black Man™ and his gynormous penis, coming to take their women, or fear of Gay folks getting married just like real people, we despise them for it, and we laugh in their squealing, bewildered faces.

For they are heathens, and they deserve our scorn. They had a chance to be BIPEDS, Bobdammit, and they chose instead to hide in their respective dream worlds, jabbering about silly made up shit like "Gaia" or "supply-side economics".

Oh, yes, they are afraid of us. They fear we superior mutants a great deal, indeed. For they see that we are not afraid. They hate us for this, but they fear us more. We weren't purged from the Pagan community because we broke their silly little rules. We were purged because we spoke the Hideous Truth™ in broad daylight. In front of impressionable children (and retards).

And they - all of them, not just the Pagan retards - are becoming more afraid, as they learn of us, and as they learn that this really is OUR century. They can see that the world they know is spinning hopelessly out of control, and all they can hear is our mocking laughter in their ears, as we move OUR ideology in, to fill the void left by their broken and discarded beliefs.

For this IS our world, now, to have and to hold, to play with and throw down the stairs, to build or destroy at our whim. They ARE afraid. They will be MORE afraid, as we let the happy-go-lucky mask slip a little more each day.

And they SHOULD be.

Or kill me.

This rant is amazing. Hats off to you sir!

Keep your hat back on.

If you would have read it closer, it was the author that reeked with fear. He writes an illusion that someone is after us. Who exactly is after us? Who is after him? That rant is no different than the invisible spiritual battle between god and devil; thus between the author himself and the boogie man.

A Psychopath candidate? Likely but for sure I say he is no different than a preacher, trying to convince you of things no one can see.

Oh pish posh, good Sir. I beg to differ. I guess I won't be the first to try and tell you this, but someone IS after you. The author isn't talking about the boogie man. He's referring to something MUCH worse. Much more intimate. I don't see the boogie man anymore. I haven't in a long time. I do see Them though. Every day. You start to notice Them some fine day, let me give you a piece of advice. Don't let 'em catch you watching.

As for me, I'm currently googling "Gods" with "Eris" and "Bob". I don't know what religion the Good Reverend is preaching, but it sounds every bit as refreshing, perhaps moreso, than Googlism.

Tom in the Morning

:icon_lol: Here's what I found on wiki:

Eris Nancy Discordia (Born -9900,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, She never died, they say) was a 'Big Ol' Dyke' deity, and became President of the United States after Cthulhu in a closely fought game of go-moku. She was sometimes known as a Sacred Chao. Her Vice President was J.R. "Bob" Dobbs. She is also widely known for Her authorship of the humorous text, The BibleFNORD, the creation of Golden Delicious apples, and the defeat of the Illuminati in ancient Atlanta. Many statues in the Britains, known as Sheelanagig, depicting a hideous woman pulling open her vagina, are based on the impression Eris left in the minds of the Human Race.

Eris works part time as the Greek Goddess of Confusion and Chaos, or She What Done It All, and part time at a Dairy Queen in Towson, MD. In traditional Greek mythology, she created Forgetfulness, Lies, Quarrels, and lots of other things the ancient Greeks weren't particularly fond of. The Holy Text Principia Discordia states:

"One day Mal-2 consulted his Pineal Gland and asked Eris if she had really created all of those terrible things. She told him that She had always liked the Old Greeks, but that they cannot be trusted with historic matters. 'They were,' She added, 'victims of indigestion, you know.'"

Eris is the Primary Deity of the Discordian (http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Discordian) religion/soccer squad. Discordians hold all the scriptures of all the other major and minor world religions in extremely high regard — as works of humor.

Discordianism encourages its followers to promote the balance of Order and Chaos in the world, mainly by performing chaotic rituals such as Mindfucks and not washing the dishes too often. The fulcrumonious allies of the Discordian religion include The Church of the SubGenius, the Bavarian Illuminati (sometimes considered an ally or even a Cabal of Discordianism), and all Greyfaces, including "The" and the "They".

So I googled "Greyface", and THIS is what I found:
In the year 1166 B.C., a malcontented hunchbrain by the name of Greyface, got it into his head that the universe was as humorless as he, and he began to teach that play was sinful because it contradicted the ways of Serious Order. ``Look at all the order around you,'' he said. And from that, he deluded honest men to believe that reality was a straightjacket affair and not the happy romance as men had known it.
It is not presently understood why men were so gullible at that particular time, for absolutely no one thought to observe all the disorder around them and conclude just the opposite. But anyway, Greyface and his followers took the game of playing at life more seriously than they took life itself and were known even to destroy other living beings whose ways of life differed from their own.
The unfortunate result of this is that mankind has since been suffering from a psychological and spiritual imbalance. Imbalance causes frustration, and frustration causes fear. And fear makes for a bad trip. Man has been on a bad trip for a long time now.
It is called THE CURSE OF GREYFACE.


Fucking
Floored.

I failed to see any humor in the piece. It was all a little too depressingly on the button. :icon_evil:

The monkeys (or sheep, as I prefer to think of them) fear anyone who is free from the shackles of conformity. Such freedom for them would mean giving up their security blanket (conformity).

The non-conformists fear the monkeys because they fear becoming monkeys themselves and so, they laugh at them to dispel that fear.

Anyway, that's what I got from it. What I don't get is how the person who wrote this rant (http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/forum/showpost.php?p=98828&postcount=1) and the one who wrote this (http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/forum/showpost.php?p=100228&postcount=68) can be one and the same person. :icon_wut?:
