At filosofere med hammeren..Cyberstyle

Så skal man jo misbruge Nietzsche.

Han er altid god for et par provokerende overskrifter.

Men jeg vil nu hellere misbruge Jim Jarmusch.

Han har jo lavet den intet mindre end geniale film Dead Man.

Sort/hvid, musik af Neil Young, Johnny Depp, Lance Henriksen, Robert Mitchum og ikke mindst Gary Farmer som den højst kultiverede indianer Nobody..

Lige den her sekvens rammer helt præcist ind i hvad filosofi og kunst gør:

Bemærk venligst at Loven falder for William Blakes poesi, og efterlader en falden Helgen i billedet.

For dem der ikke kender William Blake, the Original, så er hans data her

Jaeh..og hvad kan  man så bruge det til…

Ikke noget specifikt, men jeg elsker klippet.

Ud over det så er det en meget god illustration af at Loven og Videnskaben ikke er ukrænkelige for dem der har det Kaos i sig der giver fødsel til en dansende stjerne.

Loven:

The more laws and order are made prominent, the more thieves and robbers there will be

Laozi

Videnskaben:

Enough research tends to support one’s theory..
Someone important at some time

Fortsættelse følger utvivlsomt…

Of Lokean virtues

So he was responsible for the killing of a god. And, no, he didn’t show any remorse.

Being a scandinavian it would seem right to go with the Asatru.

Unfortunately it gave up with a whimper and gave way to Christianity long ago, and have lived in suspended animation before someone somewhere decided to revive the corpse. Fortunately the stories did live on and have provided me with many hours of good reading.

Somewhere along the lines, and many other lines, I realised that the old Norse Gods are just as boring and predictable as all other gods, just like they should be, as the god(s) are the foundation of the culture and societies everywhere.

Luckily there is Loke, son of two giants, father of  Wolf Fenris, Midgårdsorm, Hel and the mother of Sleipner. He and his family are almost singlehandedly the destroyers of the Asirs at Ragnarök, but still he is the blood-brother of Odin, travelling companion of Thor and purveyor of Thors Hammer and other nice stuff to the Asirs. Some even claims that our word for Saturday, Lørdag, is derived from Loke and shows how important he is.

Nice complex personality.

So what are the virtues? None.

He is the primarily the “Lord of changes”, which is why his prime enemy is Heimdal, watchman of Asgård, sounding his horn when the Jotuns arrive at Ragnarök. Loke is the one who keeps the gods from stagnation, both by being responsible for the death of Balder ( and thereby also preparing him for the ressurection after Ragnarök) and generally keeping them on their toes. He is the mirror that plays tricks on you to confront you with your own stupidity.

Secondly he is a thief. This is an underlining of Loke as the “Lord of Changes”. So how can being a thief have anything to do with changes?

Time for some philosopher abuse.

There is no rational reason for punishing the thief. The acts of a thief do not have negative consequences for other than the victim. The thief is happy, the locksmiths and the insurance people are happy with the need for their jobs who wouldn’t exist without the thief, and the people at the bottom of our societys are happy to be able to obtain the goods of the upper half at a reasonable price.

The only reason for punishing the thief is the collective sentiment that goods are rewards for useful participation in society.

These collective sentiments are the reason that a society without crime is impossible. This would mean that sentiments would have to exist to the same degree and intensity in all people. (Really boring)

What defines the character of crime and criminal is the collective conscience. If the moral conscience is too excessive there will be stronger reactions against crime resulting in stronger reactions against minor behaviour.

“The harder the rules and regulations, the greater the number of those who will steal” (Tao Te Ching)

This leads to a reduction in the ability to express individual originality, which again leads to stagnation and lack of progress in the society.

If the idealist is to express himself, so will the criminal, one can’t occur without the other.

What is said here is that both morality and law will have to change to avoid stagnation, lack of progress and eventually the demise of the society (or culture).

What is also contained is the fact that “consensus is truth”, since it is the collective conscience that defines crime.(The Romans saw the gladiator fights not as a sign of decadence, but as the antidote because it was good for morality to see people die in a noble fight)

Which brings us back to Loke.

He is, as earlier mentioned, the mirror to show your own stupidity, he raises the questions in you, he is the destroyer on the small scale that makes it possible for the world to keep on existing, and if you tie down the one who is responsible for the dynamics of the world for too long, he will break free and bring about the end of the world as you know it.

So Loke isn’t so bad after all. Mostly you gain more than you lose.

Mission statement?

No Kings
No Dictators
No Religious Leaders
No Politicians
No leaders at all

Skip these and you have lost your excuse for being stupid.
Then and only then you have to accept the responsabilities that lies upon you as a Human being.

Act in accordance with your persuasion and know that all choices have consequences.

And you can quote me on that 🙂

Om den aktuelle politiske situation i Danmark

Ja, det kan blive en lang udredning, men jeg må hellere overlade ordet til Motörhead:

Jeg er enig med Søren Krarup

Surprise!!!

Ja, jeg har nogle punkter hvor jeg er aldeles enig med Søren Krarup.

Islam er en totalitær religion der ønsker at overtage den politiske styring af samfundet.

Det er nogenlunde samme ønske som den katolske kirke har. Et ønske der deles af de fleste religioner i den judeo-kristne religions sfære.

Jødedommen var der først, så kom de Kristendommen, ikke-blods jødernes fællesskab, og sidst Islam, plads til alle,  alt kogt op på de samme gamle historier.

Som bestemt er interessante, men hovedsagelig bygger på andre og ældre religioners kultur, omskrevet af krigerfolk som argument for erobring.

Nu er Søren Krarup jo ikke medlem af den katolske kirke, men er hard-core lutheraner og medlem af Tidehverv, så hans ønske er vel ikke at overtage styret, men da han jo også er politiker træder han sig selv lidt over tæerne hvad angår det enkelte individs ret til “at være et enkelt menneske mellem fødsel og død”.

Nå, men hvis han vil hykle at overlade verden til individets egne vurderinger og gudsforhold, samtidig med at han føler en retfærdig religiøs trang til at fortælle andre hvordan verden skal se ud for at være den rette, så ham om det.

Det sted hvor jeg er mest enig med den gode Søren er i hans kristendomsopfattelse.

Jeg er nemlig 120% humanist, hvilket vil sige at jeg ikke acceptere nogen Gud over mig. Jeg hævder ubesværet at mennesket er guddommeligt, ligemand med Guderne og i stand til at klare sig uden nogen overøvrighed.

Hvilket vist nok i Sørens optik gør mig til Satanist, sammen med alle andre der skulle have samme ide. Hvilket  er et par individer i denne verden.

Men så er det jo at jeg er så glad for Søren K. Han definerer nemlig Kristendom, inkluderende Lutheranisme, som det det egentligt er:

En totalitær religion der selv om den hævder at det er individet der skal klare sit gudsforhold, vil gøre alt for at påvirke og styre dine tanker og selvopfattelse, samtidig med at man bruger alle midler for at opnå politisk indflydelse.

Jeg takker Søren. Og henviser til den anden Søren, nemlig Kierkegaard:

Det Store er ikke at være Dette eller Hiint; men at være sig selv, og dette kan ethvert Menneske, naar han vil det

og så lige Nietzsche:

En politiker inddeler menneskeslægten i to klasser: Værktøj og fjender

Fødevarer og priser

Se, så var der lige den her i Politiken

Fødevarepriserne er stigende og G20 kan næppe nå til enighed-

De har vist ikke lært at de eneste revolutioner der nogensinde er gået rigtigt stærkt er dem der har været udløst af mangel på fødevarer.

Der var vist noget med den franske revolution og den Russiske revolution.

Nu er den så ved at brede sig til mellemøsten, og jeg er ikke helt sikker på at vi i vores del af verden vil sætte pris på de politiske og religiøse holdninger der vil blive valgt ved de næste demokratiske valg.

Samtidig håndhæver vi retten til at lade børsspillere sætte prisen, mens vi destruerer fødevarer for at holde prisen oppe til gavn for vores egne landbrug.

Eller vi vælger at bruger “overskudsproduktionen” til at fremstille BioFuel.

Igen kan man undres over det geniale samarbejde og den fælles ånd til menneskehedens bedste der driver verden
