‘YouTubing’ is the habitation of a fantasy world made real in images upon a screen. This is exactly the ‘inverted’ world of religion writ large as described by Feuerbach, Marx, Engels and Lenin, etc! In theory, any image, regardless of its positive, negative or neutral construction value, can be made to seem ‘as if it exists’ upon the screen and stimulate the imaginations of all and sundry that happen to allow these images to pass in front of the eye and ear – thus ‘traversing’ the surface of the mind! Whereas the film industry is a tangible profession involving ‘real’ training, qualifications and jobs that guarantee genuine ‘labour’ in the material world – ‘YouTubing’ places this ‘dream-making’ process firmly into the hands of the uneducated and immature masses – telling them that this is ‘reality’ and that no other interpretation exists! The way the entertainment world used to exist (pre-internet) – ensured that ordinary human-beings all inhabited the drab and mundane ‘material’ world and tried our best to traverse its realities and injustices – BEFORE they were able (or allowed) to subject themselves to the ‘inverted’ world of ‘escapism’ and the 90 minutes £5 allotted to get away (just for a moment) from the reality of capitalist existence! All a child has to do now is wake-up and switch-on which ever device happens to be within reach and the ‘inverted’ world of YouTube beckons!
My view is that if an individual is ‘forced’ to accept an imposed point of view decreed by a government – then a country is ‘fascist’! This is exactly what developed capitalist countries do to their ordinary citizens! The US, UK and EU are prime examples, whilst many former Eastern European members of the USSR are now pursuing Neo-Nazi political pathways – all disguised as ‘Democracy’ and supported by the US! Modern Russia feels that it must ‘relate’ to its Soviet past (I can see this changing overtime) and so although inundated with fascistic modes of totalitarian thought itself (as can be seen through the illiberal attitudes as expressed by ‘Anton Korobkov-Zemlyansky’ and his student friend ‘Stepan Antropov’) – rejects ‘Hitler’ due to the mass-murder and destruction his regime inflicted upon the USSR (which included Russia)!
The lunacy (and anti-intellectualism) of modern Russia includes the bizarre conspiracy theory that the US is supporting Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine as a means to import homosexuality into Slavic lands (rather than simply projecting ‘hegemony’) and attempting to ‘corrupt’ the idea of Russian Manhood as defined through the fascist ideology of ‘Pan-Slavism’! So, there is nothing ‘suspicious’ about an older (male) lecturer coming to the rescue of a younger (male) student – with a large ‘Z’ painted on his chest…?
Anti-Note: This post is a parody of a ‘translation’ of this otherwise profound Daoist text generated by a European Christian Missionary whose purpose in China
When growing-up – Malcolm X – was far more than just a passing inspiration for me. He represented the most advanced manifestation of the Proletariat,
Interestingly, the Vatican – which hates Communist China – carried-out an independent investigation regarding China’s medical system (which included an examination into the practice of voluntary ‘organ transplant’ with China’s ‘Socialist’ System) and concluded that forced organ harvesting in China is a ‘myth’ perpetuated by the ‘Falun Gong Cult’ in the service of foreign powers! The Western media ignored this finding because it contradicts the official line emanating from Washington!
The cultural and religious baggage within Asian cultures generally means that it takes decades to finally arrive at the ability that Systema teaches from the first day of training (and only then, if the practitioner of the Asian arts has found a competent Master). This signifies the ‘Socialist’ egalitarian nature of ‘Systema’ where there were no coloured belts representing a fascistic and hierarchical grading system – as is common within Japanese culture. In the original Soviet – (and now ‘Russian’) – martial system (Systema), the highest form of inner and outer awareness, body-alignment, organisation and movement, as well as advanced technical manifestation – is taught first without any hesitation, whilst an individual’s psychological and emotional (spiritual) understanding of what a practitioner is physically experiencing has to catch-up over the many years of training.
