No overt control of dissent (system selects for system-friendly voices). Huxleyan Dystopia. Most of the modern world (USA, Europe, Japan, etc.) Rule by unspoken context or by temporary and powerless leaders. No institutions (no need for them). lawless (soft guideline bounded), moneyless (gift-economy) and timeless. Used by most societies (and most friendships) for most of human history. Never been tried in a No state, extreme limitation of power. Citizen's income, local currencies, jubilees, etc. Extreme limits on energY consumption, complexity of institutions, power of technology. Untried. (N.b. Some strands of anarchism (e.g. Stirnan) are fanatical, extremely violent and cultdike). These are much publicised by 'the mainstream Rule by workers' councils, direct democracy, etc. Technophilic. Scattered examples in history (eg. Spanish civil war, pre-Bolshevik soviet Russia / Makhnovist Ukraine, etc). Rule by intellectuals and professionals oversee- ing democratic welfare state. Heavy restrictions on wealth-acquisition, privatisation, etc. Heavily unionised workplaces, heavily subsidised public services. Small or non-existant military. Very rare, but 1950s -1970s Britain, Scandinavia and Cuba exhibited many features. Rule by autocratic totalitarian people/ elites, limitation of choice, repression of speech and repression of minorities, belief in order, routine and rationalmorality and control by enclosure, fear and explicit violence. Violent repression of dissent (via "the party line). Orwellian Dystopia. Most of the pre-modern world + USSR, Nazi Germany, Saudi Arabia, etc ('the bad guys') government examples modern or agriIcultural society post B,000 BC. > SOCIAL STRATIFICATION AND AUTHORITARIANISM SOCIAL EQUALITY AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM (theology) PANTHEISM "SPIRITUALISM' MYSTIC THEISM THEISM ATHEISM AGNOTICISM EXPLANATORY NOTES Marx isn't to the right of Chomsky! 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.

Trump Hitler: I never said it was a good thing. I said fuck cops. I said that I don't pity him. I didn't say it was a good thing. Cops are bad people because they are cops, just like trump supporters are bad people because they support trump. Call me out of line all you want. I don't think he should have been shot. I don't think anyone should be shot. I think we should ban guns. Unless he supported trump. Then I think he should have been shot. permalink embed ave parent report give avard reply born and bred 0 points 5 hours ago Oh, and don't you dare say it. I like a normal person, draw the like at fascists. permalink embed save parent report give award repby opoints 51 minutes ago* Cops are bad people because they are cops, just like trump supporters are bad people because they support trump. Hitler thought all Jews were bad people just because they were Jews. I think we should ban guns Hitler banned the Jews from owning guns, it made it easier to exterminate them. Unless he supported trump. Then I think he should have been shot. Hitler also believed that the people he didn't like should be killed. Oh, and don't you dare say it. I, like a normal person, draw the like at fascists. This is painfully hypocritical considering you have all of that in common with Hitler, the biggest fascist in the history of the planet. You are literally a fascist based on your comments in this thread. permalink save parent edit disable inbox replies delete reply born and bred 0 points 49 minutes ago You use t d. Die.
