A thought on the death penalty

I’m against the death penalty in capitalist countries, like the US, Saudi Arabia, ect.

However, the death penalty has it’s place in certain situations. I’m cool with the French people killing King Louis during the French Revolution, with the Russian people killing the Tsar, among other examples. The royalty in those countries legally owned all the land so it had to be done for those revolutions to be actual revolutions. 

If they exploit, suppress, and/or enslave the people then I won’t shed a tear if they get killed over it. 

Reflection on a dream & some thoughts on how we dream

I had a dream last night. I dreamt that I was in a forest eating some sort of bugs with 2 other people. Idk who they were. I began to eat the bugs b/c they told me that it was good. I was hesitant at first but b/c I felt that I should try, I went ahead and did so. I remember liking it but after a few bugs we stopped eating and talked. After talking I felt like that fear of eating a bug, which I had already eaten a few of, had returned. I could no longer imagine eating the bugs. Even though I was perfectly aware that they were good. 

It’s strange how we can learn that something taboo to our upbringing, in my case eating bugs, can be changed with a type of peer pressure that changes a taboo. But then, out of nowhere, it can become taboo again. 

What is it in our subconcious that we are fighting against so often? Is it my secret desire to go against the grain of society & do other things? Is it possible that I am still breaking away from my parent’s culture? Which I view as poisonous in many ways. 

Culture is defined as a learned system of knowledge. This means that everything we do, think, believe, & say is learned. We are not orginial. There is no such thing as human nature. 

This also gives rise to something I heard Slavoj Zizek say, “Desire is a wound on reality.” 

What desire am I trying to fullfill? 

What constructed this dream? What is it in reality that structures our dreams? Surely, our dreams are not just wild. We dream within a box. That box is structured by our reality & our culture. Are we even able to grasp the nature of our dreams with the language we use today? I don’t believe so. 

This also gives rise to the notion that the commonly used phrase, “Think outside of the box,” is a desire that cannot be fullfilled.

Excerpt from “Women, Race, & Class.” Trigger Warning

"In Vietnam, the US military command made rape ‘socially acceptable’; in fact, it was unwritten, but clear, policy." When GI’s were encouraged to rape Vietnamese women & girls (and they were sometimes advised to "search" women "with their penises") a weapon of mass political terrorism was forged. Since the Vietnamese were distinguished by their heroic contributions to their people’s liberation struggle, the military retaliation specifically suited for them was rape.
While women were hardly immune to the violence inflicted on men, they were especially singled out as victims of terrorism by a sexist military force governed by a principle that war was exclusively a man’s affair.” - Angela Davis. Observations on the role of rape during slavery in an attempt to oppress black women & how the same measures were used in the Vietnam war. From, “Women, Race, & Class”

thecrystalizer
In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.

i don’t know how to deal with this

So we can now say, the mental health infrastructure’s blaming of women for sexual violation is; ‘as old as Freud.’. Or y’know more honestly. ‘as old as punk ass, throw women under a bus for his own peer validation Freud’.

rmovement:

R Movement Birmingham created and distributed ‘care packages’ to the homeless. These are very easy and cost effective to make. Our care packages include condoms, period pads, cotton buds, a packet of tissues, toothbrush, plasters, soap, comb, hair bobble and snacks. We’ve decided that this will be part of our R Movement action plan, where we distrubute necessities to those without shelter and those who simply cannot afford these basic items which many people within the UK enjoy. Please do get involved and implement this idea in your local areas!
