In the anniversary of the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World, 111 years, I create this post to honor one of the best musicians I respect and admire. I'm as a Wobbly, honored to learn about this man.
Joe Hill is always as one of the greatest folk musicians in 20th century.
I die with a clear conscience, I die fighting, not like a coward.
No Wobblies from all over the world forget the words and music of Joe Hill.
Workers of the world awaken. Break your chains, demand your rights.
All the wealth you make is taken, by exploiting parasites.
Shall you kneel in deep submission from your cradle to your grave?
Is the height of your ambition to be a good and willing slave?
My will is easy to decide
For there is nothing to divide
My kin don't need to fuss and moan
"Moss does not cling to rolling stone"
My body? Oh, if I could choose
I would to ashes it reduce
And let the merry breezes blow
My dust to where some flowers grow
Perhaps some fading flower then
Would come to life and bloom again.
This is my Last and final Will.
Good Luck to All of you
Rest in Power, Rebel Joe.
I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night
Alive as you or me
Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead,"
"I never died," says he.
every motherfucking year.
the masters meet together so they can discuss how to fuck you over.
bring it hell, European comrades.
when the pigs disperse, the street is our.
Let's give them the pain every of their G20. See you on the street.
What if I told you that 5 out of 10 popular media you watched, listened and read, would borrowed from the core ideologies of anarchism. And you cannot avoid or ignore it? Often we overlooked these perspectives of what the movies, shows, music or books about why the media spoke about what anarchy really is. Anarchism transcends age and time.
To ask yourselves, what is anarchism? The wikipedia doesn't tell you a lot beside the simple "without rulers". But the missing part of it is up to you to explore anarchism and the anarchy in your own self. I find it's almost too comical that those who's trying to misinterpret anarchy as some sort of hierarchic system of their own. Like how one could try to marry Taoism with fascism and misogynism belief. But they are misguided by the society, like we all were. And there are plenty of room for education.
Which is why I made this post today.
Anarchism is stateless, classless and to abolish all forms of authorities and hierarchies, whether it's class, sex or race. However there are room for (informed) temporary and necessary hierarchy as Bakunin said it, such as a parent protect a child from danger. The bigger picture and core principal of anarchy is mutual aid which Peter Kropotkin laid the groundwork for critical understanding of anarchy. The ability to care for one and another regardless of culture, race, sex or background. The common interest and cooperation of survival between species to disprove "survival of the fittess" are not the represented fact of evolution. Mutual Aid by Peter Kropotkin is most important alternative fact and understanding of evolution that being missing out by capitalists, because it doesn not fit their narratives and exploitation.
The movie plot and story line is literally linear and straight. But that's not the points and purposes of the movie. Snowpiercer penetrates and puncture deep into the notion of harmonies, with the core principal of anarchism, socialism and communism as a whole. Class. The whole plot of Snowpiercer from beginning to the end is literally about class war. It's the truest representative of our society. First we need to understand what is class. There are two core classes, the working class, or Marx coined the term, proletariat, and ruling class, the bourgeois. But ever since neoliberalism separated these two classes, with the third pseudo class, middle class. Technically, middle class is still working class, however they are subjected to believe that they are above the poor. As George Carlin said it, "the middle class was invented to scare the fuck out of the working class."
Let's summarize the movie's purpose. The protagonist, Curtis led a revolution by caused Gilliam to take over the head of the train, Wilford. But later they only realized when reaching the front after bloodshed, that the revolution, and all other revolutions, were being perpertuated to maintain and manufacturing the consent of change. Noam Chomsky pointed out that limited conformity of change, is being created and manufactured all the time to subjected people into believing that they done something different.
But there are other two protagonists, Namgoong and Yona. And one of them who survived. Survived the bloodshed of the system. Throughout the movie, they constantly looked and think outside of the train. By the end of the movie, Namgoong blew the train door and derail it, kill everybody on the train but Yona and another survivor. Namgoong and Yona, are the anarchists. We don't want to take over the plantation, we want to burn it down and free everybody. As George Carlin said it, no revolution without bloodshed. So when you are too conforming for change, stop riding the fence and step over.
The show doesn't bother to hide its true purpose. Anti-capitalism. Anarchist group try to take down the system. Mr. Robot is the powerful head on that struck the idea of our society and why we fuck shit up. Mr. Robot shows the deepest fear, depression and anger of everybody struggling daily for food and shelter. It spoke to our lives and why we fight for what's necessary.
But there are another point that Mr. Robot showed that most people, even the closest fans of it, missed out completely. Mental illness being framed in the show as another core point, beside capitalism. But little known, that Mr. Robot tries to tell us that Elliot's disability is the main and most serious cause of capitalism. And the show pinpointed this problem right from the first episode. In Canada, it was reported that by 2020, mental illness will be worldwide's second largest source of disability. That we wanted to be sedated.
Mr. Robot connects every core issue with art and power. It's truely one of the greatest TV show in our time.
Which Side Are You On Remix by Rebel Diaz and Dead Prez
This music video is an art and it shows how powerful music and graphic can bring to people. It gets more addicting with every watch. What's more powerful is the lyrics of the track. It contains everything that anarchists fought against and still fighting for. Racism, sexism, classism, union, colonialism, war, commodity, police brutality... and capitalism.
One of the core problem that this music video pointed out, is people ride the fence. Stop doing that. Pick a side. If you want to stick with the ruling class, stay the fuck there. But if you want to help the working class, come over. Don't sit on the fucking fence and pretend that you play both sides. Either be a comrade, or class enemy/traitor.
The Handmaid's Tale
You cannot address anarchism without feminism. Against patriachy and misogynism is the core principal of anarchism/socialism. The Handmaid's Tale strikes deep into the the men's fragility of humanity. It's funny how misogynists always fear of feminism and women's rights, they never ask themselves, what's to fear if you really that care about women? The misogynists will stop at nothing to oppress women.
Triple oppression, classism, racism and sexism are inseperable. As Angela Davis said it.
mosquitos. BIG mosquitos. and the goddamn ticks. i went hiking and mountain biking the other day out of town and holy shit i get chased down by insects of all kinds.
100 people was killed in a massive fire at Grenfell Tower, Kensington, West London. Over 75 people was injured and hundreds are now being homeless. The victims of Grenfell fire were murdered by the system. The same system that promised them security, comfort and safe life. But it's not the case here. Grenfell victims were massacred by capitalism. And it gets worse because they were/are immigrants, refugees, expats, the poor and people of color. Not to place the race card, but I need to address it here, if they were whites, there won't be this tragedy.
The morbid and disgusting things here, thus murdered by capitalists:
Rest In Power, men, women and children of Grenfell.
it's a pain in the ass repacking Philharmonia Orchestra into Kontakt but i'm painfully enjoying it so far. it's purely masochism trying to organize single note in Kontakt. I don't know how @Bspendlove or @Lich did it so great. Bespendlove did Versilian Studios VSCO 2 Kontakt version, and Lich is doing his own libs. I've also been flexing my KSP scripting skill, VI-Control tutorials have been great help. however too terrible at making the GUI. So my placeholder scripts will be a modified Photosynthesis, a free Kontakt engine by Audio Imperia. It'll at least feature my fractal arts ;).
Since my sound design skills have been improving greatly these years, I'm putting together a free hybrid library. if this one come good then I'm releasing another experimental library featuring purely custom experimental sounds I used in my music.
I'm gonna take my time since Kontakt scripting is painful job. I'll update about the Philharmonia Orchestra lib in 1-2 weeks. if everything work out well, maybe i'll finish repacking @blackattackbitch SFZ sample pack into kontakt. been planning to finish that for a while.
Stay cool, guys and gal.
