    The thread could have sat in moderation limbo forever, but then I'd have lost my mind.

    I'm cool. I've read DeBord and my third nostril is already opened.

    The spectacular sham struggles of rival forms of separate power are at the same time real in that they translate the unequal and antagonistic development of the system, the relatively contradictory interests of classes or subdivisions of classes which acknowledge the system and define themselves as participants within its power.​

    I hate power struggles so much. It's like being colorblind and suddenly everyone's obsessed with a crucially important battle between red and green.

    You're gonna have a hard time if you ever go to New Mexico. Red or green is the most important choice you will make every day.

    It's okay, I'm not colorblind except in the metaphor.

    You don't know how incredibly irritating that is until you have a 17 y/o girl on your team who thinks it is the cutest phrase ever and says it approximately seven times a hour.

    Oh i guess thats true. You can't see through them though.

    Okay but how rad would that be if you had a thread that was literally transparent so when you looked in it you could see like, the forums secret forum insides. Like an xray specs thread. I dont know how forums work

    I was thinking the other day that Carrot's whole "personal isn't the same as important" thing sounded like a very seebsian sentiment
