Comments on Season 3 of American Horror Story

TLDW?: Everyone goes to hell, no one deserves it. (no not even her)

Your revenge fantasy is not worth even in theory the opportunity cost or the ethical cost.

In the context of this show it would seem that hell gets everyone. Perhaps that’s partly because everyone is so keen on vengeance and punishment. Ironic that the deserve to punish should manufacture justification to punish. Makes me ask who benefits. Who setup this cyclic system of never ending karmic debt? And why is no one opposing it?

Complaining about a tv show, letting it get to me, it’s not as trivial as you think because any story about magic could be a story about technology and like it or not these options will be presented to our species, and as we open up and grow we may learn that some of these concepts of existential context, hells, heavens, spirit worlds, could have real world analogs and we will have to deal with them.

I like having at least some idea of what I’ll do in basic classes of strategic eventuality and in the context of this show the lack of vision and stupidity is appalling. Firstly you have a pointless adherence to tradition which betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of what tradition is and therefore a profound degree of stagnation.

The seven wonders, among which are telekinesis, pyrokinesis, divination, resurrection, etc is one where they visit hell and come back. The achievement being the escaping part. One of their friends doesn’t escape. The didn’t do this test last. They admitted to reordering the test schedule at whim, it did not occur to them to sort the tests in order of failure lethality.

Imagine the stupidity and psychopathy that betrays. In this context if that’s how witches are, then they should be killed. It makes you wonder if the hunting organizations are actually a good idea.

How do they not declare war on hell? How do they not invade it to recover their friend? And if they utterly cannot by dint of cosmic law, they why on earth would they put such a risk before actions as trivial as setting a fire, or playing hide and seek, or teleporting?

The take away from the whole series is as is often the case a reminder that either people are really really stupid, or mean, or tv thinks why are. The fact that I am basically the only one that I know of that writes this way tell me it’s not merely that third one.

The take away feeling is one of disgust on many levels.

Feminists should hate it for the lack of intellect alone of the supposedly immortal female characters, let alone the rest of the cast.

At one point a character demands to be executed for her crimes for an internally valid political reason, but the response reminds me of school in that we have a demonstration that it is not the administrators that are in charge but rather the bell on the wall.

The autocrat of the witches political structure does not even consider simply decreeing a change of tradition. A rather mind numbingly stupid tradition I might add. At the very least they could update the method of execution to something both more effective and less barbaric, and perhaps most importantly, less sycophantic. Why duplicate the simplistic thuggery of your prejudicial foes? Especially considering that the one being executed had already been executed once.

I think I’m coming to grips with the fact that I simply no longer believe democracy is a good idea. I look at the world and this notion of collective self rule is proved a sham on every continent. Always some minority rules the majority by deception or force. At what point would we even in theory admit that it’s unworkable? That like all difficult tasks a specialist, preferably one trained from the cradle for it, would be best at it?

There is a lot wrong with this show.

I tried to publish this also as a netflix review but got the disgusting “Reviews must not exceed 2,000 characters.” How pathetic.

“The time when our connection to others defined us is gone. We’ve lost all sense of self. In this world where we’re watched over by the system, and live by it’s standards, a community is no longer needed, it’s not even relevant. We all live in our own little cell, and the system tames us by giving each of us our personal serenity.” ~Shogo Makishima, Psycho Pass

We Earned It

 We earned it.See all the women in that crowd? When rich old white men start making laws about them like they are live stock, they earned it.

We want oppression, brutality, extortion, lies, abuse, slavery.

We want it all, we want to be tazed and searched and jailed and censored and raped and starved and poisoned.

We want poverty and suicide and death and madness. We want a state religion and carcinogenic water air and food.

We want an excuse to be the most vile shits we can be to each other.

We wanted the zombie apocalypse. And apparently we got one.

Here’s a screen shot of how my ads were showcased before I removed them:

So yeah, here’s my response to that bullshit on Gplus:

Hey +Google AdSense

Your ignorant no reply email accusing me of mislabeling my ads can be shoved up your ungrateful incompetent ass.

Goto underlore.com and have an actual fucking human tell me my ads are mislabeled.

Fuck you and your sleazy no reply mails. Fuck your automated harassment. Fuck your unrelenting spoiled greed.

And yes, fuck the slave drone that’s reading this too. “Just doing my job” is about the same as “was just following orders.” You’re working for a giant parasitic corporation that like all the others is in a race to the bottom ethically.

You’re personally a party to everything evil they do. Don’t like the fact that you have to be someone’s bitch just to pay your rent? Then maybe you should fucking vote like it.

http://underlore.com/one-possible-solution/

Fuck your three business day threats. Deleting those ads will hurt you more than me, such is the glory of being unpopular.

You’re goddamned lucky I ever attempted to run your piece of shit ads in the first place. Clearly I never should have.

They are now deleted.
