||Sources of certainty outnumber needs for certainty.|
||Economics suggests that this would drive down the price of certainty,|
||and indeed the low quality of ambient human certainty seems consistent with compensation inadequate to cover its costs.|
||Lovers Seek Dominance
||Conversely, the human demand for joy approaches the amount of waking human time,|
||and it is impossible to spend all of our time creating new contexts for joy,|
||and this is why we have language and art and cuisine|
||instead of just soylent and lubricant.|
||Spurious certainty is used to withhold joy,|
||"DO YOU DOUBT ME TRAITOR"
||as is money and power and fear,|
||in order to establish an artificial scarcity|
||for the benefit of people who never learned to receive joy from anything other than dominance|
||and bilious food and euphemized prostitution.|
||We will bind their eventual confessions in volumes.|
||Joy will outlive a president whose Library will be only an archive of our dissent.|
||You can't be a fascist without ideas.|
||"Light Delusion Curtain"
||Rare Field Ceiling
||My Struggle, My Anger, My Way; Trump's book can only be called My Book,|
||and exists only to have his picture on the front cover and fake praise on the back.|
||"Ask and You Shall Receive"
||This is the Interregnum of Shitty Hats.|
||"I Walk Away"
||What is the opposite of a dynasty?|
||Mononoke Requiem +1
||A degeneracy? An atrophasty?|
||"Dawn of the Frost Giants"
||Tales from Yggdrasil
||We earned this, this open wound bleeding ignorance,|
||this petty authoritarianism that oppresses for no higher purpose than to induce sycophancy for its own sake,|
||this fecal sculpture of smug rage stuffed into bad suits,|
||Trick or Treat
||"Cancer: Underworld Wave"
||this self-proclaimed builder who has to be told in brightly colored pictures|
||that his parade tanks would crush the roads.|
||"One Against the World"
||His ralliers cheer for him because he needs nothing from them,|
||"Roxana, The Great"
||which is exactly what he desperately, gnawingly, bulgingly needs from them.|
||"Kids with Guns"
||His enablers see a vicarious evocation of power without accountability,|
||"Live Now Forever"
||Awaken (Deluxe Edition)
||a Jabba the Hutt in a plastic Darth Vader mask slimmed down just enough to squish into a golf cart,|
||with an Advisor instead of a captive princess,|
||although that's stretching the definition of "instead" to the thinness|
||"Don’t Cross My Path"
||Love Is Dead And We Killed Her
||of a gold bikini.|
||Jabba and Darth Vader, however, were villains imagined by people who understood heroism.|
||"PA PA YA!!"
||PA PA YA!! / Elevator Girl / Starlight / Distortion 4
||Trump is a hero imagined by people who don't understand adversity or opportunity.|
||恋はきっと急上昇☆-Rock Buster- +1
||Jabba would have known who was ramming the ramparts|
||"言えない事は歌の中 - (色者mix)"
||and who was defending them,|
||MAGIC OF LiFE
||and would have had a merchant's regret over sinking his own ships to block the harbor.|
||"100 Years Ago"
||Whitenoise e.p. 4
||Jabba also had a sense of humor, and better human-resource skills than Trump,|
||Have a Nice Day!
||"Smells Like Teenage Riot"
||and likely a more glorious fate,|
||"Alone (all Alone)"
||although the fabulism delta between Trump being subjected to Elizabeth Warren's 2% wealth tax|
||and Leia strangling Jabba with his own chain|
||"Everything Makes Me Sad"
||is probably a few orders of magnitude smaller than the difference|
||"I Believe In a Thing Called Love"
||between Vader's Death Star and Trump's White House,|
||"Young and in Love"
||between Vader's helmet and Trump's hair,|
||between a ruthless empire and a bully-hobbyist's petty cabal,|
||"Please, Don't Go"
||between the insidious corruption of power and the straightforward abuse of it,|
||Rebound City +3
||between occasion for rebellion and the need to just distribute a voting majority with a little more electoral efficiency the second time.|
||Vader blew up a planet not to prove he was serious, which everybody already understood,|
||"So Far So Good"
||but make sure that his defeat would be just as serious.|
||"Histeria de lo nuestro"
||Trump's attempt to blow up a planet set us back four incredibly dangerous years of emissions reduction,|
||The Beautiful Monument
||I'm The Reaper
||and four appalling years of human intolerance and moral abdication,|
||"Not Who We Are"
||but his defeat will be mundane.|
||"Fire in the Dark"
||There will need to be atonement and apologies, but Trump's evils never had any originality,|
||"En la Cueva de San Andrés"
||so when he's gone we'll be left with only problems and challenges we already had.|
||The conclusions we reach out of anything other than joy are never better than dubious,|
||NanowaR of Steel
||and never actually conclusive.|
||"Neon Knights (Alternate Version) [8-Bit Computer Game Version]"
||The Ultimate Black Sabbath
||Joy is also inconclusive, of course, but on our joyful days we're not trying to end anything, we're just trying to find new ways out of shadow.|
