FDR isn't to the left of Stalin! And so on and so forth. First of all the above graph represents the political spectrum as it actually is, in real life, rather than as it is presented in the mainstream media (MSM). In real life, for example, the USSR practiced state capitalism (a system where the state controlled surplus) which is only different to the private capitalism of the west (where private owners control surplus) in the most superficial details. Life for ordinary people under 'capitalism, 'communism' and 'fascism' is identical, because they all share the same basic attitude to money, law, growth, science, work and so on: hence Stalin, Blair, Hitler, Obama and co are all on the far right. The Overton Window is Nonsensel Another reason why this graph seems doubtful is, of course, because real people, in the real world, often have complex and contradictory views about a range of subjects. Most of the views of DH Lawrence, for example, were about as far left as you can possi- bly get; he rejected civilisation in toto. Yet he also suggested the working class should all be rounded up into Crystal Palace and gassed! My grandad used to read The Sun, voted conservative, praised Thatcher and regularly warned me about the blacks and gays up in London; yet in his actual behaviour he vigoriously reject- ed authoritarianism and inequality and believed that ordinary people did not need professionals to direct their activities. The Overton Window represents the limits of acceptable thought in mainstream media and politics. The left side is the position of the middle or professional class, the (new) Labour Party or Democrat Party, the Guardian, the BBC, the Washington Post and so on. These groups are firmly to the far right of the actual political spectrum, although it is difficult to perceive this as they also com- prise journalists and academics who are slightly to the left of them; Steven Pinker, Owen Jones, Christopher Hitchens and other corp employees (stagversives) are used to give an impression of balance and adversarialism, and to attract members of the 'anti-corp' or "socialist' demographic into their ads for carbon-neutral package holidays and ethical mousemats. To venture beyond the corp-es- tablishment friendly feminism' of Laurie Penny or the 'originality' of reactionary writers like Jared Diamond or Malcolm Gladwell-to suggest that wealth should be radically redistributed, that we should head towards a classless society or that the MSN is organ- ised to reward only establishment-friendly voices-is to go beyond the pale, into the land of woo' or, more ominously, 'extremism' This is why the Overton Window is ignored or dismissed in the MSM, which must maintain the illusion of 'impartiality, variety. 'balance' and even 'anti-establishment bias: It's also why maniacs like Nick Cohen and Oliver Kamm describe themselves as 'left-wing." So if the MSM left and right are fictions, what is left and right? On the left is individual freedom and equality, which is based on a basic basic trust in humanity, or in reality. On the right is authori- tarianism and social stratification, which is based on basic cynicism. The scale, therefore, is to some degree* one of sanity. The further right you go, the more you view the universe as a vast pyramid of power which people must do whatever is necessary to climb. For this reason I have listed 'theology, which bears upon one's funda- mental political outlook, the right being typically a place where aggressive atheism, abrahamic theism, sham 'yoga-and-mindful- ness' spirituality thrive, the left being a place of heretical (non-duat ist) theism, pantheism and the like, and the centre, typically, informed by reasonable agnostics and open-minded atheists. Likewise in no sense is Bill Hicks a Tolstoyan or Slavoj Žižek a Jungi- an or Thatcher a Hegelian. So the above scale is faithful to the range of political opinions outside the reverse telescope of the mainstream media, but it also represents a kind of schematic aggregate or rough approximation of the political position of major characters in Western political history (most of whom, yes, were white and male). Of course Hitler and Stalin, like a few ultra-ultra-ultra right wingers today, are officially just outside the acceptable spectrum (it's just not the done thing nowadays to explicitly persecute racial minori- ties). But their fundamental approach to society and to reality remains the same as Pinochet's, Thatcher's, Clinton's, Churchill's and so on: which is why in all their societies the poor end up getting shafted and nature ends up getting decimated. by Darren Allen llustrations by AI *ie. bearing in mind the approximations mentioned above -it's ludicrous to decisively rate anyone's sanity- hence 'truish-let alone cal Hicks saner than Orwell or Wilde saner than Morris.

[x] This shit is wild. Wtf a table finna do for anybody?? There’s basically nothing you can do but die they’re doing this to give people a sense of safety , even though we full well know this won’t work at all. ALRIGHT KIDDOS LISTEN UP! I did emergency management for the air force which involves this fun thing called Plume Modelling (aka chart the path of death for a given bomb based on its payload, distance, type of detonation, etc) and let me tell you some actual LEGIT™ methods of minimizing damage to your life. Unless you are within the vaporization zone (where you turn into a fucking shadow because of your proximity to the blast) there is a specific order of events nuke blasts cause and there are ways to protect against these things. 1. There is this thing called a flash to bang ratio. It is really freaking important. The first wave from a nuke is a blinding flash of light that can literally FRY YOUR RETINAS. If you believe that a nuke has just dropped on your city, HIDE AND DONT LOOK AT IT. @shesheistyy a good solid table is good for this but you’re way less likely to go blind if you get to an internal room with no windows, especially one below ground. 2. After the flash there will be the bang. If the time between the flash and the bang, counted in Mississippi seconds, is more than 10 seconds you MIGHT survive and just die of cancer later. If it’s between five and 10 buckle up kiddos because the worst is yet to come. And well if it’s less than 3 you won’t live long enough to remember this. These are loose estimates only. 3. The “bang” usually announces the arrival of the fire ball. Yes. A massive heat shock will erupt from the core of the bomb and light pretty much every thing it comes into contact with, including your flesh, on fire. Back to that whole “metal buildings underground” thing. There’s really no getting around the whole getting lit on fire if you’re too close thing. 4. Fallout. When the bomb goes off it sucks all of the shit it just vaporized up into the air with it and as the blast cools, it begins to rain down the radioactive fucked molten wreckage onto everyone in a huge radius. Just because the fallout you can see has stopped doesn’t mean the molecular radiation has stopped. The survival factors for nuclear blasts are time, distance and shielding. The longer it takes for it to get to you the less of it there is. The further away from the source the less dead you are. Want to survive? Put 6 feet of concrete and/or 2 feet of lead between you and everything else. Yes. Those loons with their bunkers actually got something right. NOW! About radiation! If you are so fortunate as to survive one of these blasts and not be vaporized or burnt to a crisp or die of radiation poisoning within hours, you need to understand the types of radiation. Gamma radiation is the most “severe” in that it can penetrate your flesh through your clothes and house, causing severe illness. Gamma radiation fucks with your cell walls and disrupts your DNA. It kills you in hours, months or years. Some people survive decades. Think of gamma like the sun. Too much exposure gives you cancer. Now Beta, on the other hand, think of Beta particles like sand on the beach. Its in the air. Its in your clothes, in the creases of your fingers. But beta particles can burn through your flesh or get into your blood stream through open wounds. Luckily they can be stopped with nonporous materials, like rubber, or foil. Make that two points for the loony conspiracy theorists. Aluminum foil does protect from beta radiation. And finally, Alpha radiation. Think of alpha Radiation like dust motes. It takes a high density filter to prevent you from breathing them in and if you’re surrounded by rubble they’re probably everywhere. Alpha particles do the same thing as beta particles in terms of getting into your system and wrecking your shit. So! Survival? Most likely based on dumb luck. But! If you think you’re being nuked 1. get under ground or at least to an internal room of the building if no other options are available. 2. CLOSE YOUR EYES. Curl into the fetal position to protect your orifices and vital organs from gamma radiation and get low to the ground to reduce damage from the blast and potential ceiling collapse. 3.You will still feel the flash pass over you. Count. One, two, three… If you aren’t vaporized yet keep counting. Pray to every god ever imagined that you get to 10 before you hear the bang. 4. Bang. Try not to shit yourself. The fireball will follow almost instantly if you’re in range. Be prepared to start rolling to put yourself out. 5. Fallout rains down. Do not open your eyes. Do not stop praying. As hard as it is because time will feel as if it has slowed to a crawl, try not to leave your position for at least 30 minutes, although 60 minutes is better. At 30 minutes, only 60% of the potential fall out has fallen but by 60 minutes, up to 90% may have come down. 6. Remember, Alpha and beta radiation are particles. Do not put anything in your body that has not been thoroughly washed, dusted of or came from a sealed package. Point 3 for the conspiracy theorists, hot pockets and canned food are probably still safe. Do not leave shelter without goggles, and try to wrap yourself in a minimum of those weird space blankets but rubber and metal lined suits (like hazmat suits) are best for the job.
