√ Idiot's 1st Notice

You are an idiot, in one way or another
... can you admit it ?... to yourself,
and keep going and unlearning anyways ?

... is the secret

√ Idiot's 2nd Notice

If you are easily offended - do not read -> ** LEAVE,
if you are easily confused - YOU MAY STUDY THIS

there are two kinds of Idiots;
1. Idiots who can't change their opinions
2. Idiots who won't

joe renegade personal note:
I do care about people and about life,
but am not concerned if you read this, or
to hear any pathetic belly-aching, bullshit opinions,
this is a shooting gallery for mediocrity

√ Idiot's 3rd Notice: You have just been warned !

Idiot is a word derived from the Greek ἰδιώτης, idiōtēs ("person lacking proficiency, or adequate skill," "reduced individual"), from ἴδιος, idios ("private," "one's own world").

[1] In Latin the word idiota ("ordinary person, layman") preceded the Late Latin meaning "uneducated or ignorant person."

[2] Its modern meaning and form dates back to Middle English around the year 1300, from the Old French idiote ("uneducated or ignorant person"). The related word idiocy dates to 1487 and may have been analogously modeled on the words prophet and prophecy.

[3] "Idiot" was originally created to refer to "layman, person lacking professional skill", "person so mentally deficient as to be incapable of ordinary reasoning".[6][7] Declining to take part in public life, such as democratic government of the polis (city state), such as the Athenian democracy, was considered dishonorable. "Idiots" were seen as having bad judgment in public and political matters. Over time, the term "idiot" shifted away from its original connotation of selfishness and came to refer to individuals with overall bad judgment–individuals who are "stupid". In modern English usage, the terms "idiot" and "idiocy" describe an extreme folly or stupidity, and its symptoms (foolish or stupid utterance or deed).

"Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?"
~ George Carlin

an idiot is someone who has no bearing on reality as afforded and available right in front of them, and are without the ability to clearly or rationally link themselves to the actuality of events

in this respect almost every person on this planet,
especially those living in dead-concrete cities - are idiots.

mindless consumers, are in fact idiots with emptying wallets

Idiot characters in literature are often confused with or subsumed within mad or lunatic characters. The most common imbrication between these two categories of mental impairment occurs in the polemic surrounding Edmund from William Shakespeare's King Lear.

In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Idiot, the idiocy of the main character, Prince Lev Nikolaievich Myshkin, is attributed more to his honesty, trustfulness, kindness, and humility, than to a lack of intellectual ability.

Nietzsche claimed, in his The Antichrist, that Jesus was an idiot. This resulted from his description of Jesus as having an aversion toward the material world.

the point isn't at all if you agree with Nietzsche, or not

the point is
that perhaps, and most likely - you are - a modern day, living Idiot.

"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot."
~ John Lennon

Let us examine the Idiot premise.

as a 'person-idiot' also acting out a range of idiot characters made up of false masks,
blundering with inadequate mannerisms engaged in the daily idiocy of life, engaging with other idiots
arent' you additionally contributing your own stupidtry and moronism into the entire idiot mix ?

... but can one be so blamed for 'going with the flow' ?

for instance, don't we all use colloquialisms,
when others ask us relentless, meaningless, mechanical questions... 'how are you?'
... how many times have you heard that ?... and the person doesn't even look you in the eye, stop or give a moment's true care ?... once in a while, a rare person actually looks at you, and perhaps even stops to really listen

oh so rare, when idiots run around the daily fare

"Education is a crutch with which the foolish attack the wise
to prove that they are not idiots."
~ Karl Kraus

then... how many times have you asked the same type of empty question... just in the guise of social politeness ?

it is not polite, it is stupid - pretending, and insincerely wasting time is irrelevant behaviour, rooted in undisciplined distraction

are you distracted by the 'missing' CAPITALISATIONS' ?
or peculiar absence of grammar ?
... for if you are, you are entirely missing the point, as usual

now that... my 'on-the-verge-of-crazy' friend... sounds more like the definition of idiocy

if you are not willing to, for a moment, consider this could be true,
then it most likely is,
and if it is true, and you don't stop to ponder your life ineptitudes - then how will the emptiness, misery and shite get any better ?

don't say it doesn't.. because sister, it does

it does have a horrible empty weight behind all the cheshire smiles
it also does
... I am referring clearly to the point - "it does get better"

IF you participate

I mean really, is there anywhere but mostly up from down here?

brothers and sisters, don't argue with me - argue with yourself!

"Don't take the wrong side of an argument
just because your opponent has taken the right side."
~ Baltasar Gracian

you are reading this because you have a perfect life ?

but no
... you are super busy
way over busy
chaotic, mostly empty, meaningless and quietly desperate
is more likely - at least in some moments... here and there

you can't get over there, past the here, without going through here, first
... even if you sold your soul out a long time ago,
take it back, I dare you !

liars always lie to themselves first - how good are you selling
your version of your great fake dream to others ?... just need to hear yourself say it enough times, and it will come true ? hog wash

you can convince yourself of almost anything,
actually anything - even that you are happy living someone else's rules, expectations that are not your own, disrespect for who you are

but if you haven't really thought about who you are
... others will sure tell you,
and every reason why You can't do something, your dream

I know, I've been there, getting kicked when you're down
heck, misery does love company - but abhors a vacuum

become the vacuum

empty out the shit-bucket of other's opinions, out of you

stop making unimportant things important

become god

" Man as an individual is a genius.
But men in the mass form the headless monster,
a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded."
~ Charlie Chaplin

sweet jesus hayzeus, not the regilious kind, just simply the reverse of a kicked 'dog'... which is what spelled backwards?... I'm only pointing out you can take back your power to become your own creator (like a god or goddess) of your own life

if you are one of those people who watched The Secret
and thought, 'oh my good god, this is it, I will have everything now...'

√ Idiot's 4th Notice:
you are one of the mass idiots, that bought in, because it gives
you a perfect excuse to not do the Work, the self-work,
let me guess, you watched it 5 times... and nothing changed...

I know of a guy who watched it over 60 times,
and actually said, 'I can't figure out why its not working, I just keep watching, but nothing is happening?'

"If an idiot were to tell you the same story every day for a year, you would end by believing it."
~ Horace Mann

is mind control bullshit to get your attention,
baubles and buttons,
and contests for bread and circus

sure is a lot easier to see others idiocies - WHAT ABOUT your own?

that is the end of the first order of our affairs in the Notices for Idiots.

√ Idiot's 5th Notice:
spelled out... is,
if you are easily offended, what the hell are you doing here ?... for one, on this planet ?
... or in my column ?

self-masochist, maybe ?

life IS misery,
it is also purely sweet,
just don't choke on the candy

all the shite that comes in life isn't garbage, it is compost,

all of it

no matter how bad the shite, don't throw it out as garbage
... the baby is in that bath water Mate !... take the worst of it and compost it, grow something beautiful out of the mud, just as the lotus flower needs the mud to support it's beauty so do You need to grow out of the mud.

what does that mean ?
Stop being a wounded-child, victim, saboteur
whore, in the respect of selling out your own self and ideals

"No man can be a pure specialist
without being in the strict sense an idiot."
~ George Bernard Shaw

yes, it does take balls to be better, not to be a dip-shite idiot

we all have common sense - we all know what is right and wrong,
especially for ourselves,
in fact, really we only know for one person, one's self

that is what authentic friendship is,
respect enough to listen and straight-tell of the truth
that lurks in the other's blindspot - that's anam cara

if you think you are a teacher, guru of any kind... you're not


all a human being can do for any other human being
is give them the fire of passion to pursue their own path by sharing their own story, but not the recipe, for no two paths are alike, ever

but no,
we have to indoctrinate other minds to follow our learned prattle, to feed our children years of other's old, rancid left-overs, forcing them to learn the repeated 'facts' disguised as pseudo-knowledge... the supplying of answers

instead of asking so simply, 'what is Your question?'
genuinely waiting to listen to the answer, their own answer

creating profound disconnected sadness, frustration and pure angst - sometimes for a lifetime

"In the first place God made idiots. This was for practice.
Then he made School Boards."
~ Mark Twain

why do teenagers rebel ?
... when they figured out your power play on their mind and emotions is bullshit - that you are a fraud
because you simply couldn't let them have their own thinking

you bastards and bitches,
and you thought that wickedness was so good, because you forced being right, as it was done to you, onto others, your own family...
'let's show little Mary and Johhny what's good for them'
father knows best

NO ?... do not lie, it is mentally retarded... and we are all mentally retarded on this planet, guaranteed !

parent-experts on how to create suffering,
just push this small, vulnerable human being as far as you can according to someone else's rules - holy sacred cow

well, I have news for you - father spent 40 years climbing the ladder of success
and, got to the top,
and found it is against the wrong wall,
but he didn't tell you that now, did he ?

it's the death of a salesman, who sold himself his own shite for 40 long years...

how dare I point out that you can't admit you're wrong ?

... well you are wrong, no doubt
that makes you an idiot, when you can't admit it

remember, that's how this all started

take note,
we're mostly ALL wrong in our minds, our thoughts, our decency - in some way

so what,
not because you did those things,
BUT because you didn't try to learn anything greater and beyond your myopic, tiny, cursed, crushed self

"There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity."
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

you couldn't let go of your constructed, false GOD,
to just actually... go directly to god

you bought into someone else's version... didn't you ?

so the swill you've conjured up
will just take time to age
unless you decide it's bloody garbage,
then it will rot out from behind your life,
the one that you wear in your stink everyday

but if you allow swill to age into wine,
and not throw it out too early - your loss - if you could just wait, let life's processes take on the best of its environment
then you have allowed for a natural course, an honest fermentation

and there is no other way - timing

natural timing comes from experience, good experience comes from hardship, adversity

let's drink some of the sweet wine of life - ah, now we've finally
come to the sole purpose of, the radical

you will notice, I didn't write soul purpose, because firstly
I am not ever going to offer you new age prattle, cute bullshit
or ever allude to, preach or make innuendo in the context that I know
anything about what your path or destiny is

I am no guru nor teacher, though possibly one of the greatest arse kickers you will find in your time

"The difference between genius and stupidity
is that genius has its limits."
~ Albert Einstein

I only entice you, to consider perhaps, surrendering to your own authentic purpose

the genius and uniqueness of YOU that gives meaning

so that the sweetness of life,
which is between thoughts,
between the shite,
between the expectations,
in between the GODlessness
so that the elusive, sacred elixir can be enjoyed
even if for a few moments,
in moments that are actually genuine, real, meaningful

isn't that what it's all about, living a great life ?
it takes courage,
... not idiocy

because every single system (any religions lurking out there?)
ever set up to answer your questions
is only robbing you of your power, so I will not answer your life
questions, or ANY question - that is for you to do, and only do for you, by you

Jesus is Jewish, the Dali Lami said so himself, look it up
... consider that, between all the other bullshit facts
shoveled in your directions
... you don't even know he also had a brother named Kristos ?

there is no such thing as a FACT,
shear facts grovel before authentic life, crushed before the dynamic, matrix of natural living which is connected by the ancient purposeful power of divine LOVE

you can say 'whatever', it doesn't exist,
but you are breathing the air, your blood flows, your hearts beats
try and deny that - hint, you can't without looking like an idiot
you can't even make any of that even happen
you can't fabricate your own birth,
or even grow one blade of grass
but you can engineer your own death - from birth,
or at the age you decide you are a victim, or a loser

as idiots
we non-participate in a genuine life, every day, idiots idolizing death - just to chase 'illusions', another word for 'false gods'

I can say that I have done this myself,
and I have also experienced the rapture of hard work, cosmic luck and stunningly satisfying life experiences - go on get out there... anywhere, out of your comfort zone

it is worth pursuing
- you gotta have the gumption to try, take it to the edge
take the plunge into yourself, so you can live,
experience and act as a total, decent human being
this is where the only journey where authentic freedom awaits

not as a brainless moronic idiot, who is only regurgitating other's words and versions of shadow control dreams,
as if you knew what you;'re doing,

not likely
until you first admit, "I'm an idiot."

"We know that the nature of genius is to provide idiots
with ideas twenty years later."
~ Louis Aragon

you have'tn yet had a big enought kick in the arse, have you ?

if you don't like my speelin' = then bugger off, it is EXACTLY
NOT the point,
but notice clearly that is how easily diss-tracted
you are,
if you ain't on track, you are de-railed

do you even know what your real dreams are ?
chances are - you can't answer THIS question !!

what do You actually want ?... do you know ?
... I bet you can sure say things that you DON'T want...

are you still just reading for entertainment or morbid curiousity?

but, if you are in the majority...
then right now
you are also on the verge of being so darn angry,
mad at these words before you, because maybe no one in your damn, miniscule and putrid, shitehole life has ever told you the truth about anything, even when they swear that they did

news flash - because they don't know either !!

how are you supposed to know, that they don't know, when
they say so surely that they know ??... they're just part of the gears set up to mindlessly provide you answers - someone else's answers - that they have accepted to repeat like robots

to think on your own, to think for yourself, takes guts !

it takes taking the hits, criticism, ridicule

do you have any answers of your own ?
or haven't you asked, really asked any good questions yet of yourself, of Your life ?

have you gone far enough down the rabbit hole ?

"I'm all in favour of the democratic principle
that one idiot is as good as one genius,
but I draw the line when someone takes the next step
and concludes that two idiots are better than one genius."
~ Leo Szilard

you think you're free, you live in a democracy right ?

I am not going to use the argument of 'freedom of speech'
that is simply horseshit, if you think you have the right of free speech - then ask your neighbour's wife for a blowjob and see how far your 'free' speech will get you ?

the fact is, in this life, nothing is free, once you get 11 mm
past your skin, you are immersed in the dimension of energy that physcially connects all of us { hint: under 11 mm is the energetic connection to the entire energetic matrix }

99% of your time, is spent engaged in
  -> didacticism or pornography
it is not what you think - nope, it's worse

you are (likely & mostly unknowingly) doing it all the time

"Most fools think they are only ignorant."
~ Benjamin Franklin

"the conscious separation or cheap removal of yourself to a disconnected reality of another's genuine presence - removed far enough in your mind that you are so separated, higher - that you can now pretend that you can judge that other from your distanced position"

of course, it is utter bull that you can remove yourself from the universe of the micro and macro cosmos, as you are the biological centre point of your galaxy - your universe is connected to all other worlds, life forms - these universes are where the creation and settlement of karma occurs

so good idiot - that is Didacticism

as an idiot, yes - you are also involved in... pornography

[ it is not what you automatically think it is, because you already think you know what pornography is, right ? ]

"it is the deliberate act to take another's presence and reduce it into an image - for the purpose of possessing the idea of that image - so that you can control and dominate the form through the false image you projected to hold in your mind - this is a pure desecration"

"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool
than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."
~ Abraham Lincoln

still don't get it ?... okay, I'm taking one for the team,
didacticism is when you remove yourself away from someone so you can judge them from your separated perspective & pornography is when you attach yourself to something in order to possess it

didacticism & pornography are the main idiot's weapons against life in western white-trash anti-realism - you are either judging yourself and others, or even worse... you're doing it with other's standards (ie, religious constructs, of guilt, moral superiority etc.)

are you grasping at an image of something to dominate or possess that other human creature that you have turned into a false idol, which makes you a pornographer in every sense of the word ?

and we've all done it !... and you will do it again today and tomorrow... can you admit you are an idiot, and catch yourself?

"A fool thinks himself to be wise,
but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."
~ William Shakespeare

if you can't admit this simple in-bred fact of life,
that your mind has wandered over to the dark side of lower energies, time and time again

if you can't admit you've judged another or held out the image of another you wanted to possess, then
don't come back here
and don't ever read my column again - Disgusting Idiot !
