""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

For one thing, godardian won't have to deal with Pantalones (or at that time, SantaClausWasABlackMan) anymore.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.... well, shit, what can I say???


*sigh*
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I just want to thank godardian for replacing that ugly Odd Job avatar for this much better Ricky Ricardo one.

Hey, if you tore through your short(ened) life by regularly cranking out four brilliant films a year, ruining your actors' lives, getting dangerously high and being a sexual omnivore, you'd look pretty bad, too! Any of us would! Cut the guy a break!

Hey, godardian, lighten up. It's called a joke!

Um... that was me being light. Under normal circumstances, I would never have been so flip about one so deserving of reverence.

Misunderstood by so many, I am...

Well, there was that one time I realized I had turned into some sort of insect, but I figured it was merely "symbolic."  :)
