kultur und Politik, Gesellschaft      can the world be as bad as it seems 

Über uns: 

"We're interested in information, we're not interested in radio as sutch. And we believe that the whole battlefield, if there is one in the human situation, is about information."
(subhuman reloaded)


So, the enemy is thee "control process" and thee power of thee "control process" isn't actually armies and police, it isn't power through force. That is a secondary tactic, butter not thee crucial thing, thee real power is who's got thee information. Thee weakness of whoever controls that information bank at any given time is that, to store and use that information, systems have to be developed for storing it and reproducing it. Those systems are very expensive and cumbersome, requiring capital & equipment which can't be utilized thee whole time. So, to cover costs and keep equipment running, these systems have to be made available to thee rest of us to keep them financially viable. That's why you get access to cable TV, to computer time, to xerox, instant printing and cassette recorders, even thee mail, polaroids too, and video. These are all spin-offs from business, conglomerates and people at thee top who deal directly in control. They develop these systems for their own reasons, butter they are so expensive they have to mass produce them to finance them. So we all get easier and easier ways to mulitply our ideas and information, it's a parallel progression.

In the magical universe there are no coincidences and there are no accidents.
Nothing happens unless someone wills it to happen.
The dogma of science is that the will cannot possibly affect external forces, and I think that's just ridiculous.
It's as bad as the church. My viewpoint is the exact contrary of the scientific viewpoint.
I believe that if you run into somebody in the street it's for a reason.
Among primitive people they say if someone was bitten by a snake he was murdered.

I believe that.

-- William S. Burroughs--

"du räumst dem staate denn doch zu viel gewalt ein. er darf nicht fordern, was er nicht erzwingen kann. was aber die liebe gibt und der geist, das läßt sich nicht erzwingen. das laß er unangetastet, oder man nehme sein gesetz und schlag es an den pranger! beim himmel! der weiß nicht, was er sündigt der den staat zur sittenschule machen will. immerhin hat das den staat zur hölle gemacht, daß ihm der mensch zu seinem himmel machen wollte"
