I should write the CorpScrew Letters. What would it be good for the corporate devils to have us think, feel, believe?
Here’s a thought it would be good for Uncle CorpScrew to advise his younger Tempters to promote: That politics doesn’t matter, that it is, in fact, evil. That would be very Orwellian. It would get people thinking that politics = government, and government = pernicious meddling in our lives, and thus by the transitive property of equality, that politics = pernicious meddling in our lives. Because if we can believe that, then we will find ourselves defending CorpScrew’s minions around the world, helping to “keep government of our backs” and by “our backs” I mean “corporations’ backs” and not our backs. We will be useful idiots.
It would be good to get people to think that “useless” means “worthless.”
It would be good to have people be confounded by, at turns, thinking the world they see is exactly the world as it is and is meant to be AND that we have no access to the world as it is and as it is meant to be and so what anyone says about it is simply mere opinion. They wouldn’t know whether to cry or wind their watch.
It would be good to get people to think that there are only big problems.
It would be good to get people to think that there are either no solutions to big problems or that there are only big solutions to big problems.
It would be good to get people to think that there is nothing beyond death and that death is bad. This will get a lot of people killed.
For those who persist in thinking that there is something beyond death, it would be good to get them to think that this means they need take no notice of what’s happening now. This will help get a lot of people killed, as well.
