the google guys say
life’s more than just the money
do good and do well
ruthless people say
“don’t be evil” is naive
greed obscures vision
gold rush in china
civil rights violations
don’t intend to become so?
no more censorship
part of repressive program
hong kong redirect
back to core values
principled approach yields trust
trust is everything
all bits created equal
born into bondage
splinter in your mind
i remember learning that the hardest thing on punks was punks,
not the system, not cops or anything else
but people saying anarchy is impossible because…or ####### ORGANIZERS anally setting things up…the greedy people with no vision that ruin everything.
overcontrolling. still, the feeling in the music will matter more.
i will always HATE ClearChannel. for what they did to radio in the years between 2000 and 2010. a certain brainkill prevailed and it reflected in all sorts of culture.
of course the closed mind will say “way to rant,” derisively as if to be the psychic vampire that sucks the relevance out of the statement.
that’s the republican tactic of late, the fascist tactic.
but a rant is an incoherent statement…a closed mind can choose to refuse to comprehend—and then say that anything that fails to reflect the agenda that the closed mind wishes stated to be a rant…
...add to that the way that greed assaults minds with soundbites and attempts to enforce short attention spans…
when punk seemed to begin for me it had been going on. but it was the dead kennedys that woke me up—pointing out that Reagan was the Enemy and The Evil and stupid and brutal and ugly one, all in one. and it was true.
then jello clearly “changed, man, you forgot what it was all about,”
in a ####### courtroom suing his bandmates for what?
because he got blinded by a little fame and money and completely forgot what it was about. a certain sort of success can ruin people…it’s more than just greed and bright lights. it’s integrity, an idea of integrity, something inside
punk rock has always been a form of joke…but when corporate mentalities came to take over…
some people have always recognized this.
i know that someone might want to come up and say that this is a manifesto. i am just gonna say—they are skimming real fast because they care more about what they want to project than the idea i have shared—i just want to say I HATE YOU, I ####### HATE YOU to that person, so maybe they will shove the idea of the word “manifesto” BACK UP THEIR ASS…
anarchism was around for decades, centuries before punk rock, cock rock, #### rock, crack rock or elvis, before JAZZ, anarchy existed as an idea of intellectual autonomy and personal freedom…
