The “Free-Speech Twitter” PSYOP

CJ Hopkins

It’s never a very enjoyable experience, facing the fact that you’ve been bamboozled. Realizing that you’ve fallen prey to an elaborate con, or PYSOP, is painful. It’s embarrassing. People feel ashamed. No one likes to see themselves as a sucker. It’s humiliating. It makes people angry. It makes them want to lash out at someone.

The funny thing is, it usually isn’t the person who conned them that they want to lash out at. Doing that would only make them feel more ashamed. No, typically, who people want to lash out at, when they finally realize that they’ve been bamboozled, are the people who didn’t get bamboozled along with them, and who tried to warn them that they were being bamboozled.

This phenomenon is occurring right now. I know this, because a certain sector of my readers are angrily unsubscribing from my Substack, and unfollowing me on Twitter, and so on. This happens more or less every time that people start to realize I was right about some PSYOP or con that I warned them about … Russiagate, Covid, and now “free-speech Twitter,” or “X,” or whatever we’re calling it today.

Yes, that’s right, the jig is up. The bloom is off the rose. The cat is out of the bag. The party is over. The thrill is gone. Folks are finally starting to realize that “free-speech Twitter” was an elaborate con (or a PSYOP, depending on how paranoid you are), and they’re none too happy about this realization.

So, they’re taking it out on blasphemers like me who tried to warn them about The Emperor Elonicus, and how the Twitter Files was a textbook limited hangout, and who pointed out how Musk shut it down as soon as it had served its purpose, and who referred to some of them as “Musk cultists,” and “suckers,” and who tweeted sarcastic Tweets like this…

But I’m not writing this column to whine about that. It’s part of human nature. I get it.

I’m writing this column because, maybe, now that folks are starting to face the fact that the whole “free-speech Twitter” thing was an elaborate con, or a trap, or a PSYOP, maybe, now, they can knock off the “Elon is our savior!” crap and try to pay attention to what is actually happening.

Here’s an example of what is actually happening…

Here’s a link to that Tweet with a recording of the Spaces thing. It’s Linda Yaccarino, X CEO, explaining how the new censorship system works. And here’s my favorite Yaccarino quote:

“Since acquisition, we have built brand-safety and content-moderation tools that have never before existed at this company. And we’ve introduced a new policy to [address?] your specific point about hate speech, called “Freedom of speech, not reach.”

What she’s talking about is the future of Internet censorship. Not the ham-fisted government-initiated censorship that people tend to think of when they think about censorship. Corporate censorship. “Free-market” censorship. What she’s talking about is the virtually imperceptible moment-by-moment manipulation of social-media content, search engine results, “reference” platforms like Wikipedia, everything most people see on the Internet. The corp-speak term is “visibility filtering.”

From now on, instead of being suspended or deplatformed — which is bad PR, and only draws more attention to the deplatformed party — dissident voices will be “deamplified.” We will be “free” to post whatever we like, but we will be talking to no one, in a digital void, which most people won’t even know exists. “Red/blue” culture-war mud-slinging content, and other such harmless entertainment that keeps the masses infuriated and at each other’s throats, will of course be allowed, and will be “amplified” and “monetized.” But any serious form of political dissent or deviation from official narratives will be labelled “hate speech,” “disinformation,” “malinformation,” or simply “unhealthy.” Corporations like X, Meta, Alphabet, and Tencent will decide what is “healthy.” They will do so with algorithms, but not only with algorithms.

Here’s Linda Yaccarino again, talking to CNBC this time …

“… X is committed to encouraging healthy behavior … 99.9% of all impressions are healthy … and we have an extraordinary team of people who are overseeing, hands on keyboards, monitoring, all day, every day, to make sure that that 99.9% of impressions remain at that number.”

I don’t know how much clearer she could make it. A team. Of people. Monitoring everything. Moment by moment. Every day. Not some badly-written algorithm. Not some secret cabal of mutinous Wokesters sabotaging Elon’s vision. Not the FBI. Not the CIA. Not the WEF. Not the Rothschilds. Just Twitter. Just X.

This isn’t one of my “conspiracy theories.” There is absolutely nothing secret about it. It’s all explained right here, and here, and here, and here, on the Twitter Safety blog.

Here’s one of the interstitial labels that Twitter might put on your “unhealthy” Tweet before they “deamplify” it into oblivion.

See! Twitter is, like, totally committed to transparency!

Of course, you have nothing to worry about if you are tweeting (or Xing?) “healthy” content. That “extraordinary Twitter-Safety team” that is monitoring everything “all day, every day,” would never “deamplify,” or “visibility-filter,” or otherwise censor political speech that isn’t “hate speech,” or … you know, use one of those interstitial labels to maliciously defame some troublesome author by deceiving people into thinking he was tweeting child pornography or graphic violent content, like bestiality, or necrophilia, or some other type of “age-restricted adult content,” as Twitter was doing to me until May of this year.

I’m just joking, of course. They’re going to keep doing that. Not to me anymore, not that way. (After I embarrassed Ella Irwin publicly, they removed the fake labels and just deamplified me.) But they are going to keep doing it to other people. And not just X. All the corporations. They are going to keep “visibility filtering,” and “deamplifying,” and vaporizing dissent, and there is currently nothing we can do about it.

Meanwhile, we (i.e., the “Free Speech Movement”) will be celebrating our “victory” over the bad apples in government who were forcing the poor, helpless global corporations to censor everyone until we took them to court and made them stop with our democratic rights! Then we’ll all live happily ever after!

I don’t mean to shit on my friends and colleagues who are fighting hard against government censorship. At least they’re actually achieving something, while I’m just sitting here running my mouth. And the fight against government censorship is important. It is vitally important. And it has to be fought. I support it wholeheartedly, and I applaud them for fighting it. But it isn’t going to change what’s happening.

What’s happening is, GloboCap, or Corporatism, or whatever you want to call the network of global corporations, governments, media, non-governmental governing entities, investment banks, global health authorities, academia, the culture industry, and other such entities that together comprise the decentralized system of power and ideology that is currently running the entire planet … whatever you want to call that, it’s going totalitarian.

It has been going totalitarian, more or less openly, for the better part of the last three years. I’ve been covering this transition for quite a while now, and I have reiterated my analysis in many of my essays, and I published a book about it, which is possibly going to get me sent to prison here in Germany, so I’m not going to rehash it all again here (which should come as a relief to my regular readers). If you’re new to my work, you can read the book, or my essays, which are all on my blog and my Substack.

For now, trust me, we are going totalitarian. That’s what all the “visibility filtering” is about. That’s what the “cancel culture” is about. That’s what all the mindless mass hysteria and the demonization and criminalization of dissent is about.

It’s what the “Free-Speech Twitter” PSYOP is about. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter whether Elon Musk even knows what he is doing. The system that he is an integral part of is evolving. Musk will help it evolve or he will be replaced by someone who will help it evolve. Musk, Yaccarino, Zuckerberg, Pichai, Gates, Klaus Schwab, Wang Zhonglin, or pick your evil mastermind! These people, notwithstanding their very real power, are just components of a system, a global system, a system that is evolving toward totalitarianism, because it doesn’t really have anything else to do.

I do not know how to stop this from happening, this evolution of global capitalism into a new form of totalitarianism, but one thing that occurs to me is, it might help matters if we slowed down a bit and tried to actually understand what is happening, like in the broader, historical, systemic sense, and maybe didn’t chomp down on every little piece of red-meat bait that gets dangled in our faces, and then whipped up into a frenzy over whatever the visibility-filtering team at Twitter, or X, or Meta, or Alphabet, or some other corporation, wants us whipped up over.

Oh, and, maybe, next time some self-aggrandizing global-capitalist military contractor comes riding into town like Billionaire Jesus to save us from his buddies in the proverbial Big Club — you know, the one that you ain’t in — maybe folks could take a moment and at least hear me out before they start prostrating themselves at his feet.

I’m not right about everything, of course, but I seem to be doing OK with this PSYOP stuff.

3) The fool (uneducated) shall be servant to the wise (educated), Proverbs 11:29b.

4) There is nothing new under the sun, Ecclesiastes 1:9.

There was a mysterious ideological & socio-economic/political link etc. between “Arm & Hammer” Baking Soda and the world’s then premiere money-launderer, Armand Hammer. His father, Dr. Julius Hammer, founded the NYC Communist Party over a century ago, when communism was still cool, and he was tight with Lenin & Stalin. As a tribute to his Red associates, he named his son Armand as a sort of pun on the Hammer & Sickle iconography of the USSR. Apparently Hammer, fils (my ol’ man’s client at ecjlaw com, as a simply incredible but Fun Fact) got tired of explaining that, no, he had no connection, zero, to the iconic American brand baking soda, nor was it named after him, nor vice versa. Still with us? So the Russian-born billionaire Hammer bought it, lock, stock, and hammer (and the flexed bicep of the logo, as “Arm, and”).and he could now say that, indeed,… Read more »

Visibility filtering via manipulated algorithms has been going on for at least the past couple of decades on Google, for instance, and has in recent years got so bad that dozens and hundreds of pages of search term results have gone missing. Now, only “approved” pages for any given search term come up when you enter a search enquiry, no matter the search engine you use (they all seem to access Google for information).

The only thing we can do about the vapourization of dissent in the ‘approved’ sections of society is to keep creating our own echochambers, our own communities of more or less like-minded freedom lovers. We can keep the doors open to new members but otherwise shut out the totalitarians, obfuscators and destroyers of everything beautiful and wholesome.

If you read the essay by super-Weffie Ida Auken, “I Own Nothing … ” she states the following, ” … Those who got upset with the political system and turned against it. They live different kind of lives outside of the city. Some have formed little self-supplying communities.”

Well the word “binary” has now become “suspicious” and “controversial”. But sexual love is binary with a vengeance. So it all follows logically. There is a war on sex, on relationships, on socialising. We are all being condemned to solitary confinement.

So Twitter is big enough to hire an army of employees to monitor its content 365/24, meaning every post has been seen by a human eye! Sounds incredible considering the size of the content, but it could be with a suitable organisation. What I can’t understand is the author’s implicit message that Twitter is failing some moral duty by not publishing content, or by “de-amplifying” it, “invisibilizing” it, etc, and connecting that to Freedom of Speech. As I understand it, Freedom of Speech is just that, freedom of speaking one’s mind as exercised directly, (within the family, with neighbours, in the streets, etc) not to be confused with the right to post content using the services of a company which allows expressing one’s mind, just like I’m doing right now. Technology brings with it conceptual problems, and this is one of them. If I’m hungry and go to the supermarket,… Read more »

There is one huge fly in the ointment you present. It’s called Open To The Public. A grocery store that is (as are some here in the US) strictly a co-operative need not sell to anyone not a member. However, a store that is Open To The Public has in effect forfeited the right to limit its services to only certain customers. The same thing with companies like Twitter. The internet does not – and by its very impersonal nature cannot – discriminate those who access it. The only recourse would be for social media companies to ADVERTISE themselves as open only to certain individuals. Yet they allow anyone to become members. Then they decide afterword that certain members cannot enjoy full privileges of membership. Yet they enjoyed the full privileges of data mining their members. In a word, Twitter et al has an obligation to the public to inform… Read more »

It is IMO not the case for an open to the public store, and here is why.   There seems to be some confusion. The Internet is the infrastructure that allows connectivity, made of cables running on land and under the sea, the routers that optimise and direct traffic, the towers, etc. It is a public resource, to which governments of the world and other institutions helped build, expand and maintain over the years. Although some of the equipment is owned by companies such as IBM, the Internet as a whole has no owner. Let’s pray it stays that way.   This Internet (inter-network) connects to each other networks of computers and servers (as in a home or a company) containing the data that make up websites, texts, images, audios, videos, etc. By means of a monthly fee, my computer gains access to that connectivity, the right to use the… Read more »

Perhaps you have a nuanced understanding of the word “contract”, but the defining characteristics of a contract don’t specify who determines the considerations.   In the US: “A contract is an agreement between parties, creating mutual obligations that are enforceable by law. The basic elements required for the agreement to be a legally enforceable contract are: mutual assent, expressed by a valid offer and acceptance; adequate consideration; capacity; and legality. In some states, elements of consideration can be satisfied by a valid substitute. Possible remedies for breach of contract include general damages, consequential damages, reliance damages, and specific performance.” – Cornell Law School   In the UK: “A contract is a legally binding promise (written or oral) by one party to fulfil an obligation to another party in return for consideration. A basic binding contract must comprise four key elements: offer, acceptance, consideration and intent to create legal relations.” –… Read more »

RE: What you’re overlooking is that commerce is a two way street. When it comes to social media, it is really a one-way street.

With this behavioral data, they engage in a behavioral futures market, selling your future behavior to other companies who want greater certainty that you will buy their products.

It’s still a private company censoring though. Freedom is speech must include the right to free expression everywhere, even at your place of work or anywhere in public. The free exchange of ideas demands this. And are Twitter really publishing anything? That’s like holding BT responsible for ideas expressed over the phone.

Aw, thank you for the poem, Kacz, but honestly I’m really quite nice.

Anybody can make typos, no problem, but I’m old enough to see a systematic pattern of disintegration at work in our language, and I reckon we need words in the 21st Century to mean what they’re supposed to mean.

Feeling ‘superior’ has nothing to do with it. I don’t harbour any grudges or suffer from an inferiority complex for which I need to compensate.

I just care about the future of education because, back in the day, the availability of education gave me so much personally; so I’d like my grandchildren to have that option too.

Yes, it’s certainly pretty naive to think one of the richest people in the world is going to protect free speech. It’s not impossible but unlikely. Musk’s ‘controversial’ views are basically window-dressing. Most likely, Twitter was already (very quietly) in commercial trouble, and it would have looked too suspicious if someone like Rupert Murdoch had been asked to step in, so they went for Musk.

Right, it is very naive….kind of like a lesser Billionaire, like trumpster… why the hell would ppl imagine he’s “for” them?? (I saw a clip of a woman bawling her eyes out, like a tween would over that Harry pop-idol guy, bc her Idol/Saviour trump was taking a minute of his time to sign her red hat). Having lived in nyc during trump’s time, it was easy to see him as a big conman. Musk is the same, a colossal fraud – meant to lead/march us into the nwo. None of those who are out in front (well, front men & women) are in our club.
Same for the alleged other “side”….Malone, Kennedy and the like….it’s all the same side/club.
What should we call our club…”WTP”?…or maybe Club “Mankind”?…(don’t be put off by my use of ‘man’…i’m female, but it’s 👍 w/me….ha).

As I’ve said for half my life, Cynicism means never having to say you’re wrong. Believe the worst of humanity and history will always prove you right.

It may take a while as people swoon under the delusion that humanity is just one great big wonderful species which is, sadly oh so sadly, led astray once in a while by bad actors.

As long as this silly notion holds sway, we’ll never get anywhere. As long as we insist on blaming humanity’s warts on Klaus Schwab et al (whoever’s the present day devil’s servant), we’ll never get to the bottom of this history wide problem.

As so often, your comment provokes serious contemplation of what human existence and evolution really are.

I think you are right to mention the devil as being behind many of the humanoids who currently run everything, and that’s perhaps the crux of the matter:

Forces which oppose the things we normally consider to be good, healthy, fruitful and enlightening are part of the reality of life, but the good news is that we can regard those backward forces as an important part of our learning experience as we struggle onwards.

Just imagine if there was no opposition to “The Good”, and everything was done for us by some benign spirit.
We would have no self-conciousness at all, because there would be no need for it.

But this is the devil’s claims.

The devil claimed he could do God’s work better by introducing “opposition” saying evil.
He also claimed if there was no opposition, God would be a nanny for humans who would not develop and progress toward the divine.

But the result of your and the devil’s belief, that opposition in an important part of progress we exactly ended up as bottomless stupid as we are today.

It is therefore the tree in paradise is crucial. The point over the i. If you eat from it you will certainly die. If you stay away by own will you can live forever and progress toward the divine endlessly.

Paradise is only for those who dont cry for a nanny, nor opposition.

You misjudge me, although there is something important in the point you make, and we are actually in complete agreement about the ‘necessity’ for opposition as far as our spiritual evolution is concerned. My last two sentences confirm that agreement. Yes. The devil did claim he could do God’s work better, but the definition of “better” matters. Then there is also the question of our readiness to receive certain gifts. Men are clearly at all kinds of different spiritual levels, and not even our average awareness of such things is very advanced. And there is a third consideration: The catastrophic results of the right thing coming at the wrong time, for example too soon. The devil actually promises divinity for ourselves, but the condition for that (in small print) is that we remain under his thumb. God, on the other hand, clearly has a slower, but surer path for us… Read more »

Disagree with you totally, at least in respect to Icke. He figured out the nwo agenda 3 decades ago. In truth, even that is not so difficult if you have a smattering of street smarts, and besides, if you read between their lines, they tell you. He often says about himself and his amazing predictive “track record,” that he is not psychic. If you know where this scum wants to go, and the population doesn’t resist them fiercely, then predicting future events is just relating the successful rollout of their agenda. Ain’t rocket science, Mars.

As to your statement that Icke is a limited hangout or controlled opposition, tell me this. Just how has the information that he has been releasing for the last 30 years aided their agenda? Please be specific.

Similar to Ted Kaczynski in many ways, who’s manifesto is a truthful and precient piece of work that accurately predicts and dissects current events and modes of thought. But try telling any of their useful information and ideas to a general normie, even one that has an inklng that all isn’t as we are told. You will become the subject of ridicule.

After hitting “post comment” here at Off Guardian, it was disappointing to follow up and find 1 upvote and 3 downvotes as of 6:47 AM ET – Thursday, August 17, 2023… We would respectfully ask those who registered a thumbs down the following question: “Does your negative reaction suggest your possession of a more practical solution(s) to the ongoing global mass murder nightmare than people reporting the crimes to law enforcement…or are you part of the sinister effort to dissuade people from/reduce the number taking right action by reporting COVID/mRNA bioweapons crimes to law enforcement?”

The logo of Facebook is identical to the mathematical symbol for infinity (∞).

The logo of Twitter would also be the same mathematical symbol for infinity in which the left-end and right-end lines are thinned; it is called x-infinity. Both firms then are expressing through that symbol to having found the way of indefinitely capturing the ressources of the public mind, or in economic vocabulary, of at will disposing of the public’s time (eventual labour-time) for their possible gain.

Danger and Death ☠️

Some associate the X symbol with the overlapping femurs or the skull-and-crossbones that signify danger and death. While the crossbones first became associated with pirates, it later became a generalized hazard warning by the end of the 19th century.

Later, both skull-and-crossbones and X symbol on an orange background became the standard for labeling harmful and toxic substances throughout Europe. It’s likely one of the reasons why the X symbol gained a macabre relationship with death.

An Assange Plea Deal? For What Crime? Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

“It really is nuts how there’s now talk of Julian Assange being offered a “plea bargain” for rightly exposing US war crimes. What’s he meant to plead guilty to? Good journalism?”

”Julian Assange said “The overwhelming majority of information is classified to protect political security, not national security.” It doesn’t exist for our benefit, it exists for theirs. It’s so our rulers can keep doing depraved things with no accountability. That’s why they keep expanding government secrecy and increasing the punishment of those who breach it: because they want to do more depraved things and remain unaccountable.”

If anybody wanted to take any sort of logical approach: ‘free-speech’ is a misnomer. Free-speech is “indoctrination, intimidation and intolerance” (as per the preceding article.) The most significant event in every life is the indoctrination into languages as the means of control. Thereafter: the language itself is the PSYOP as part of the language-gamification we play as Sprachspiel or Kultursprache. The logic and grammar dictates or compels not just the way we think, but that we can think at all; in culturally predetermined ways. Every thought has already been culturally-generated as predetermined organisation, ‘we’ merely change the order-words whilst the logic and grammar remain the same as legislative “rule-governance”. The most significant event in every life then is indoctrination into grammatical intimidation and intolerance; whichever is also arbitrarily engendered in “romance languages” like French (which is what Barthes, Derrida, Foucault, and D&G where critiquing.)

According to the merriam-webster website the first known use of ‘gamification’ is 2006. Wittgenstein died in 1951.

An English-speaking parent says to their child:

“That’s a wasp and it will give you a painful sting if you annoy it”.

You might be able to work up some anodyne sense in which the child’s understanding of this sentence is ‘culturally-determined’. However, the child may disregard (or not fully understand) the advice and in so doing may find its understanding rather ‘reality-determined’.

“Language-games” have intensified in their intensity since W died; particularly as an increasingly vicious hyperindividualism — which is gamified grammaticalisation. You can connote some economic Game Theory as well, especially the zero-sum gamification of “determination and negation” of economic ‘what is valuation’ and ecologic “what is not” valuable, which includes things like life-support and even life-itself — all of which is predetermined by grammar and logic.

It’s not worth pursuing this further. All that needs reiterating is that Wittgenstein’s concept of a language-game in Philosphical Investigations (first published in English posthumously 1953) has nothing to do with the much later concept of ‘gamification’ (2006 according to merriam-webster). According to the Cambridge online dictionary ‘to gamify’ is ‘to make an activity more like a game in order to make it more interesting or enjoyable’. I’m not going to attempt here to write an exposition of Wittgenstein’s use of the word ‘language-game’ – anyone who’s interested should go and read Philosophical Investigations. A simplistic explanation is that Wittgenstein was comparing human activities including language to games of many kinds. He certainly wasn’t advocating making human activities more like a game.

Wittgenstein does not control the language, and neither does anyone else. What Wittgenstein meant in either the Tractatus or later was contextual to him, and him only. Since then, things changed. “The author is dead” and things move on. All this close reading stuff is irrelevant. Nobody knows what W meant except W and the circumstances in which he wrote. Thereafter “W said” is projection of the current author and their interpretation in the crowd and in the flow of life; for which the poetic metaphor “language gamification” suits my purpose. There is no way to recreate the author of the Tractatus of the PI, ever; that’s gamification for you!

You have to use the grammar and logic that was indoctrinated into you in your infant years. Most people are uncritically and unquestioningly indoctrinated for life. Some question that indoctrination but are ridiculed by the lifelong herd-animalisation of the communised collectivisation. OMG: was Nietzsche ever wasting his time!

Surely you can see that any left/right dichotomy is purely grammatical: The left/right antagonism is grounded in the sentence-structure; not in actuality. Class antagonisms are the same; which is not to say that domination does not exist, but that it is ubiquitous. Humans are second class citizens as objectively dominated as subjected by grammatical construction. Thereafter:<solipsism is solecism>; individual personification is an autonomised abuse of the grammar; especially a continual abuse of the verb <to be> as an existential copulation.

Its a statement, how to emotionalise is up to you, but there is no animosity teleported by me. How anybody reads anybody else’s statements is a matter of emotional self-investment. The critique is of the use of language itself. I admit to no left/right dichotomy, only a left/right mirror imagery. How anybody reads anybody else’s statements….

Any indeterminancy of meaning is differential emotionality invested in symbology. Personally, I’d rather we didn’t emotionally charge language, but most people have their identity at stake in self-indicating symbolisation. Again, I’d rather we did not do that and use the language as a tool. I’m critiquing the uncritical use of language and therefore critiquing any sort of classification, categorisation and periodisation. If we determine the correct label do we determine the essence of the thing — No, but most ideologues would have you believe they can. So I’m critiquing that too!

Every sentence on this virtual page, and every other page — indeed each and every sentence humans have created (in the last few hundred years of standardisation) — is apophantic. If you say it is ‘apophansis’ people balk, and then carry on apophantically constructing propositional sentences as completely unconsciously internalised. Sentence construction is governed by strict rules under communitarian supervision (as phatic communisation) and nobody wants to acknowledge that this structure of dualised antagonisms is the organisational principle of our lives. We live as the grammar dictates; and that is very much not “reality-determined” but grammatically-determined. Wittgenstein had plenty to say about ‘pain’ and private language; we can only feel ‘pain’ due to cultural=determination; but any singular example trivialises the population-wide use of language. “The cat sat on the mat” yields no universalisable principles. So, 2,500 years of semeiotic usage has bypassed the current readership; and the grammar and logic… Read more »

Language is a system synonymous with all human activity: what language ‘means’ is what humans do as anthropogenesis; which is irreducible to the few sentences you produced. Meaning and truth cannot be inferred from any singular statement as Hjelmslev, Frith, MAK Halliday tried to show. But nobody read them.

Humans use language all the time as unconsciously and uncritically incorporated; which will probably never change; so meaning and truth is consensus in practice and use. If somebody reads any of the above; at the same time Xbn other people are using language so the meaning and truth is somewhat limited. I’m talking about the overall use which come called the metalanguage; that is the total use of sound symbolism as economic civilisation. Language = civilisation; anthropogenesis = anthroposemeiosis as the species use of sound symbols to exploit itself and its surroundings — “Mind the gap!”

I posted “On Truth and Lies in an Extra-moral Sense” the other day; It appears ‘we’ are separated by the same logic as bipolarisation if we adhere to the cultural logic of Absolutism v Relativism. There is a third position currently denied by the culture of the middle way; proposed as “all grammar and logic is a priori falsehood: but some of it may still be useful” which is pragmatism. All our statements are false: but some of them may be useful (modified Box’s Axiom) is possibly too subtle here, but Nietzsche was a very subtle writer. If an when we stop speculating, that does not preclude us from articulating descriptively as a better, or more adequated morality. In short: economic moralisation as the absolutisation of the contemporary culture is nihilism; an ecologic ethicality of a successionary community is anti-nihilistic.

An interesting, if macabre, addendum to the idea of language itself as enslaving might involve our good buddy Elon’s Neurolink. Presumably that technology (should it ever come to fruition) could render language passe. Then what? Would we then have pure thought, unfettered with words and grammar?

If so, no one could convey their “thoughts” to another because each Neurolink recipient would be on a different wavelength. Unless, of course, Bro Elon and his team fiddled with the link itself.

What is macabre or occult (as hidden and absconded) is that the “end of philosophy” is the “beginning of philosophy” completed or perfected as First Philosophy as Ontology (Being qua Being).

Bees have dances that indicate where plentiful food can be found; and if the others are fed, they ignore the dancer.

Therein, the eusocial comparison falls apart.

The word is the symbol of the word; the ‘thing’ has nothing to do with it. “Terminus supponit pro res the supposition terminates in the thing is part of the underlying dogma of Western mystification; and this has nothing to do with ‘me.’ Everybody is indoctrinated into grammar at school, there is no “realisation” in sentence-structure. If everybody understood that the word is a symbolic token for the dominant interpretation of things there would be little or no need to say anything. A state of affairs that would suit me just fine. In the meantime: everybody thinks that the word is at least one type of thing — and that is the self. Which is exactly how the dominant grammar controls the collectivised mind.

I know somebody who posted art, music, writing online 10 years ago and nobody accesses it. And it’s good stuff. Just as good as or better than most of the crap on the internet. I guess she got visibility filtered before they invented visibility filtering.

One should always “look a gifted horse in the mouth” BUT should use it as long as it works out. Tucker Carlson for example does this or RFKjr. Or were these also gifted? Aren’t we all? In street fighting anything could be a weapon…
