THE RIGHTEOUS PREDATOR

I have insight into the heart of evil, because, although, by the grace of God, I have been spared from an upbringing that would immerse me into the culture which would feed into it, I am, to a large extent, cut from the same cloth.

When a predator sees a grass eater, its instinct is to sneak up on it, tear its jugular, rip it limb from limb and consume it.

Now, we, as human beings, were designed to be predators. We have eyes on the front of our heads. We have digestive systems that can process meat. We have brains that operate more efficiently when we eat flesh. We were meant to hunt things, and tear flesh from bone. This is what we are. People can subsist on vegetables and be perfectly healthy, but in order to do so, they must eat a very wide variety of vegetables to get all the same nutrients; nutrients that we can get wholesale by eating raw meat (cooking meat damages its nutritional value, although it does kill anything it may be infested with).

I don’t say this to attempt to refute vegetarianism, which can be made to work, but merely to point out that, biologically, that is not what we are designed (evolved and/or created) to be.

All of that having been said, over time, civilization has successfully bred out the predator instinct from a large portion (the majority, I would say) of the population. We have relinquished our predator instinct in favor of a herd mentality. Rather than focusing on developing a relationship with a few strong people and subsisting by consuming the weakness out of the herd, our nature has been inverted to seek validation, comfort, and protection in large groups — the psychology of the herd; the grass-eater.

For those of us that are left, who have not succumbed to this, who are still capable of thinking for ourselves (another attribute associated with the predator-individualist), there is a strong psychological tension at work.

We see our fellow human beings, and we experience, on the one hand, a human fellowship, yet, on the other hand, we perceive in them (in their attitudes, values, philosophy, and psychology) the nature of herd.

We experience desires that offend our conscientious natures.

But those that fall prey to their desire to eat their fellow human beings ultimately becoming something else, entirely — they lose the predatory nature, and become parasites.

The nature of the predator is to take out the weak. This strengthens the herd. In corporate America, the healthy predator will frequently be in a managerial/executive position. If they are not, then they frequently experience alienation and frustration, since their coworkers will tend to have more of a herd mentality, which will be completely foreign to them.

The nature of the parasite is to take out the strong. Why? Because they have become accustomed to people willfully feeding themselves to them via the various fraudulent systems they’ve designed, and the self-confident, and intellectually independent strong (i.e., the predators) pose a direct threat to that system, which enables them to continue to enjoy a position on the top of the human food chain without having to work for it, or be worthy of it.

The entire system is unnatural, twisted, and unjust, and it undermines the viability of the human race by promoting weakness and the herd mentality. It is disgusting to independent thinker — as well it should be — and it is enabled by the philosophy of the city; the system whereby we huddle together into vast population centers until we are piled on top of each other like sheep around a shepherd; instead of being the rural, land-owning entrepreneurs we are supposed to be.

Do you hate Wal-Mart, Monsanto, MTV, and all of these unnaturally huge corporations that are making us weak and stupid?

I blame the herd mentality.

FASCIST!!

People are very quick to throw this word around.

It really amounts to an ad hominem attack.  It is seen as inherently pejorative; and perhaps rightly so, and it is frequently thrown around quickly and (as in my case) inaccurately.

This same guy later deleted one of my posts, which had been both polite and on subject in a different thread.

Retaliation much?

SEND THE CITY: A CASE OF UNTAPPED POTENTIAL

Article by PJ Cornell.

Syndicated from the Asterisked Music Journal.

Assessment: 7.7 out of 10.

Bottom line up front: You guys are very good.  You could be much better.  The only thing you need to unlock your potential is to get off the flouride and find your untapped warrior spirit.  You identify your genre as being «Easycore/Melodicore.»  I’ve never heard of this genre, but based on the sound, I gather that the idea is that it’s Metalcore minus the screaming.  Here’s the thing, guys: you need to know your fan base.  Chances are, if they like your admittedly excellent riffs and melodies, they’re probably Killswitch Engage fans.  You’re trying to sell soft-core KsE.  That’s not going to fly.  GET ANGRY!

Highlights: The best song you guys have, by far, is Retribution.  You could maybe speed it up a little, but I like the riffs, I like the vocal harmonies, and I love the screams.  That’s the direction I’d like to see you take.  Look Alive is a distant second.  It’s a decent song.  Has a great tune.

Criticisms: Look guys.  You just need to get hardcore.  Bottom line.  Find your inner warrior.  Speed it up.  Give us more screams.  You’ve got talent.  Make me feel like you actually believe in what you’re singing about.

Conclusion: Good songs.  Get mad.  Ramp it up.

 

HYMN ONE

We walk this earth
With fire in our hands;
Eye for an eye.
We are: Nemesis!

We are with you:
Countless vicious souls
Fight; fighting for freedom.
United, we stand. We stand!

We are a legion
Voice of anarchy.
This is revolution;
Creating new disorder.

We are enemy:
Opponent of the system.
Crushing hypocrisy,
Slaying the Philistine.

One for all, all for one.
We are strong, we are one.
One for all, all for one.
We are one: Nemesis!

A malicious fever burns
In our heart, in our veins.
Your blood, my blood;
Our blood runs the same. The same!

One for all, all for one.
We are strong, we are one.
One for all, all for one.
We are one: Nemesis!

We are Nemesis!

One for all, all for one.
We are strong, we are one.
One for all, all for one.
We are one: Nemesis!

Happy 11SEP12. I hope you thanked a soldier today.

DON’T TAKE SHIT. EVER.

If you put yourself in the position being humble and genuinely willing to learn, then the group will subconsciously, yet inexorably push you to stay in such a situation.  Furthermore, they will identify you as the group scapegoat.  All shortcomings of the group will be ATTRIBUTED TO YOU.  If you don’t want to get shit, then don’t take shit.

And God help you if you happen to be the smart one of the group.  They won’t understand your ideas, so they’ll break them into shards and shank you with the pieces.  Before you share ideas with any group, you should first find out what peoples’ weaknesses and insecurities are — so that when they do lash out at you for being smarter than them, you have all the ammunition you need to destroy their fragile little self-esteems.

They will not realize how deeply hypocritical and insecure they are being.  They will admonish you to be more humble and more willing to accept advice — even as they continue to pile on the shit.  Therefore, if anyone tries that kind of bullshit on you, you throw it back in their face IMMEDIATELY.  Don’t be afraid to be brutal in your verbal abuse — regardless of how «gently» they seem to be poking at you.  If they are poking at you gently, it is because they are testing you.  Fuck.  Them.  Up.
