Libidinal Accelerationism

Postby LD330 » Wed May 16, 2018 3:10 pm

Okay so the first thing to keep in mind is that according to psychologist Lacan, as long as doing good is a superego injunction, the most revolutionary thing one can do is to be evil.

Accelerate Left: Here we are Stalin. We are egalitarian and all-encompassing. The sickle is sweeping over entire countries. We are equalizing. Everyone is our comrade. The Great Leap Forward is happening. Stalin is the Great-Father instituting equality for all.

Accelerate Right: Here we are Hitler. We are part of a massive institution holding jurisdiction over all. The swastika stands on a massive banner. We are superior. We are discriminatory, or not even. We are part of an in-group. Hitler the Father will lead us to victory.

Either way millions of people will die.

Perfectly consistent with Nazism.

I like how they outlawed Freemasonry.

That’s what it is, isn’t it.

Ostensibly Thelema will let you think whatever you want, but practically, most things don’t align with Thelema.

What is Thelema? Do you mean the organized religion called the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica? Do you mean specifically the teachings of the A.'.A.'.? Do you mean your interpretation of Thelema? Do you mean learning one's true will and doing nothing but that?

Now... if it's the latter of those listed, who are you to know? Another's true will.

So I’m the hypocrite if I don’t let someone else be a hypocrite.

Well, I suppose if I'm wrong and you are karma, to thwart him from his will is blind. Feel free to speak and think as ye will, and when necessary, as brothers fight; but whoa unto he who scorns the mob! so says the mob.

It's probably going to have to be an "as brothers fight ye" kind of thing.

I can let go of it, but it just makes me feel dead - like nothing is supposed to move me ever. Like that's some kind of ideal - statuesque inactivity and removal from the world. It doesn't feel right.

I think, in pondering all things, that a wise man (or woman) is all things equally; a stoic, a hedonist, a pagan, a monotheist, a pantheist, an atheist, a logician, an artist, etc. That's how I feel.

To get back on topic....

I think it's possible to make more moderate adjustments.

1. What is appropriate depends on the context: the time, the place, the individual.

2. An individual's job isn't to be a balanced average of everything. Just a balanced average of one's own impulses. One gets control of the vacillations of one's being, not to become a neutral, but so as to be in harmony with one's essential direction.

3. Work your way from superficial to deeper. Ergo if you have too much superego going on, some id might help.
