Challenging the Two-Party System

Jill Stein's staffers must've read Evil, or just dumb?



Ah well.

A thousand and one ironies. Stein has been arrested for trying to appear on the televised debates between the Republicrat candidates, and has then written articles and given speeches (and tweeted, of course) about the hypocrisy of power controlling access and voice in what should be a democracy. Her having her internet cronies ban me is, like Mao's purging of intellectuals, proof that the Green Party really is just another part of the system.

More importantly, the necessity of boundaries arises: if there are no boundaries, then there are no voices. If a bunch of Greens are trying to plan home invasions to seize assets to pay for their latest "green energy" proposals, and High Arka is asking why the Federal Reserve and the military-industrial complex should be gobbling money from private citizens to pay CEOs for elite climate policy plans, then the Greens aren't able to stay on message, and they begin losing fans and coming apart. It's the conundrum of the anarchists, who find that their rugged individuality can't trump the discipline of the nationalist militia. Relativisms fail by being relative, and can only survive as hypocritical non-relativist relativisms.

What, then, is the lesson? "Demand honesty of those who will to power"? Or, "Demand savvy from those who will to power, such that they are able to trick the foolish into believing they lack such will"?

  2. Please, you're scaring away all the idealistic radicals who will in 20 years or so realize what a monstrous war criminal Bernie was and look for a new party. Feel the Jill!

    2. In this context the female part of the audience cheering whenever she mentions that she's a woman would at least make some sort of sense.

    3. I wondered, given the Green's successes in formally infiltrating Europe, if they're grooming the Green Party to be the new leftist alternative to the Democrats, which will become the conservative party after the Republicans go the way of the Whig.

      But now, if Trump's a Manchurian redirectionist working with Bernie, perhaps popular discontent will break the Democratic Party, and leave it Green v. Republican, thereby efficiently dumping Democratic slavery history.

  3. Of course they're going to ban you.

    Possibility 1 - the mod who banned you did the homework, typed "higharka" into google and found your lovely antidavidian right-to-kill-your-children-stripping blog, and concluded that if Jill ever got on TV, she'd have to spend all of her airtime distancing herself from you. Maybe the mod even considered the possibility that the blog was some republicrat effort of an early killswitch should one become necessary.

    Possibility 2 - the mod who banned you is just a run-of-the-mill representative of the breed; someone given a small degree power and dying to use it whenever a breach of the Overton window is suspected.

    Now it's in all likelihood #1, but it is astonishing how narrow the Overton window gets in so called open anonymous internet venues like "forums", especially nonpolitical ones. Although maybe I should lose the quotation marks for the open discussion places in a militaristic empire where everything can be opined upon in a civilized manner under the watchful eye of a praetorian guard as the latest batch of troublemakers rots on trees a bit out of town. The term forum might be perfectly appropriate.

    Regarding unelectable vote-wasting Jill, the notion of stopping all the killing seems pretty good, even at the price of stolen tax dollars and Kurosawa movies.

    1. Jill would love to spend her airtime distancing herself from me, because it would be airtime, and because it would be a great way to demonstrate how big her Mao is. Except that they only spend time distancing themselves from people who are (1) already famous, or (2) flat-earth type Mossad opposition.
