Gender Equality Does Not Exist

That’s right. It’s unpopular opinion time. For clarification, although all genders are valid, in this article we’ll be using the word “gender” in terms of feminism and mysogyny.

It is 2019. Women are allowed to vote, hold jobs, own land, ect. The majority of us are capable of being self sufficient individuals that can live independent of men, and we have long ago proven that we are intellectually equal to men. So why is it that we don’t have equal legal rights to our own bodies? Why is it that, statistically, women are paid less than men to do the same jobs and the same amount of work?

Simple. Because while women’s role in society has vastly changed, gender roles and expectations have not, and as a result women are largely still being treated like shit.

The fact is, the battle for women’s rights is still far from being won, and in this day and age it’s focus has shifted from the right to work, vote, and own land to our right to healthcare, abortions, contraception, and equal pay.

For women, gender equality still does not exist. However, it’s this writer’s opinion that the same can be said for men as well.

No really. Think about how many toxic expectations there are of men. Men are expected to be the providers and protectors of the family. They’re expected to be the strong ones and keep their emotions in check at all times instead of expressing them.

Now, consider how many men out there routinely allow themselves to be treated like shit by women who claim to love them. That’s right ladies, I’m calling you out on this one. If you use threats, physical intimidation, assault, or temper tantrums to get your way with men, you are an abuser.

Fact: Men are just as likely to be victims of domestic abuse and violence at the hands of women. But again, men are supposed to be the tough ones, therefore most incidents go unreported or are not taken seriously by law enforcement.

When it comes to Hyperianism and it’s stance on gender equality, I personally consider it to be an equalitist movement. We believe in doing away with bullshit expectations and that neither gender is superior or inferior to the other. We believe that men and women should be subject to the same rights and the same laws, and should be held equally accountable for their actions.

There is no such thing as gender equality guys. It doesn’t exist, and it won’t exist until society adopts an entirely equalist point of view and changes its laws and expectations accordingly.

It’s time to stop viewing one another as men and women and start viewing one another as human beings.

Marijuana: A Brief Beginner’s Guide

Some of the most common questions I have seen throughout the Hyperian Facebook groups have to do with different kinds of psychedelics, many of them in regards to the philosophical and psychological experiences we have while using certain substances. However, I have also seen many who have never tried any kind of psychedelic asking what to expect should they ever decide to experiment.

Since I am personally an expert on this one at this point, and since it’s probably the most common, I figured I would talk a little bit about my personal favorite psychedelic, marijuana.

Just to start… Hyperianism does not condone anything illegal. Although Marijuana is making great strides towards legalization and is becoming much more socially acceptable than it once was, it is still illegal in most states as well as other countries, so if you choose to experiment with it, you do so at your own risk.

My first tip for first time marijuana users is to know what you’re smoking.

All too often I’ve met someone who has told me that they tried marijuana once and didn’t like how paranoid it made them feel. That I can understand, it’s not a fun feeling. However, what most people don’t realize is that there are two major strains of marijuana, Indica and Sativa, each with countless numbers of minor strains that share their DNA, and each of these minor strains effect your mind and body in different ways.

Indica strains such as Grand Daddy Purple, Bubba Kush, and Northern Lights will give you a physically and mentally relaxing high. You’ll want to kick back and just chill with a movie or book, and you may even fall asleep. In the medical field, Indica strains are most commonly prescribed for treating pain, insomnia, and in some cases even anxiety.

Sativa strains are the fun ones. If you are one of the people who tried pot once and didn’t enjoy it due to paranoia, you were more than likely smoking one of these bad boys without even realizing it. Sativa strains like Sour Diesel, Green Crack, and Durban Poison are genetically designed to give their users an uplifting, energizing, creative high. These strains make you want to do things, and you’ll find that you’ve suddenly become hyperfocused on a specific activity. If you find an activity to focus your energy on you won’t get anxious or paranoid. Sativa strains, due to their uplifting and attentive high are steadily proving useful in the treatment of mental health conditions such as depression and ADHD.

It should be mentioned that regardless of which strain you’re smoking, all of them give you the munchies.

My second tip for first time marijuana users is to make sure you are in a place that is comfortable and safe, preferably in your own home, and since it affects your physical and mental facilities, DON’T DRIVE! Make sure you have something to drink, munchies, and a book, movie, or creative project. The high won’t last long, maybe a few hours tops, and you’ll be good as new the next day. Weed doesn’t give you a hangover like alcohol.

Your first hit off of a freshly packed bowl will always be the harshest and you’re probably going to cough and feel like you’re about to drop dead. You’re fine, try to slow your breathing and take deep breaths until you’ve stopped coughing. This is where a cold drink will come in handy. Also remember the old saying “the more you cough, the more you get off.” Coughing causes a surge of oxygen to hit your brain which makes the high more intense.

Since THC (the high inducing molecule in marijuana) is absorbed through the lungs into the blood stream, it only takes a minute or two for it to reach your brain and cause you to feel mental and physical effects.

You may feel as if you’re disassociating, like your body is physically there, but you are mentally disconnected from it. Physically, your body may feel heavy. It might feel as if moving a muscle is a majorly exhausting task, and if you’re lying down or sitting in a reclined position your chest may begin to feel heavy. Sometimes, your mind will begin to race. You’ll find yourself feeling anxious and unable to sit still, and one crazy creative idea after another will pop into your head until you choose one to focus on.

Also, you will at some point get a major case of the giggles over something completely fucking stupid, and you’ll most likely forget why you’re laughing to begin with and then laugh about that.

As far as psychedelics go, marijuana is the most common and safest when used responsibly. It will not cause you to hallucinate. It will not cause you to go on a drug fuelled rampage, and it won’t cause you to eat anyone else’s face. However, THC molecules travel through your bloodstream. That means that if you’re pregnant, you should probably wait (or quit smoking) on weed. Although THC is safe for adults, it can have negative effects on the unborn. I would also not recommend it for use by anyone with a history of addiction.

Be safe, be responsible, and have fun. Even if you only end up trying it once, you’ll see why it being illegal is pointless. The only thing a stoner is a danger to is the contents of their refrigerator.

Capitalism: What is it and Why is it failing?

Every American citizen knows that our country runs on a capitalist economy, but what a surprising number of Americans don’t know is what capitalism is or how it works. They are also brainwashed into believing that our current free market capitalist system is something that benefits them.

So, what is capitalism and why doesn’t it benefit The People like we’ve been lead to believe? This Hyperian, who has actually studied for a degree in Business, is about to give you a brief lesson on our economy and teach you how it would operate under Meritocracy.

Capitalism is an economic system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit rather than by the government. In a capitalist economy, decisions and investments are determined by owners of wealth, property, or production ability, where as prices and the distribution of goods and services are determined by competition.

America operates under free market capitalism, a system which operates free of any intervention by the government. Under free market capitalism, prices for goods and services are determined by consumers and the forces of supply and demand and are allowed to reach their point of equilibrium without government intervention.

The number of working class Americans who have to rely on some form of public assistance, whether it be HUD, food stamps, medical assistance, WIC, or cash assistance is the number one indicator that free market capitalism has failed completely and our tax laws, namely the trickle-down theory are the reason.

The trickle-down theory, or trickle-down economics is the economic proposition that taxes on businesses and the wealthy should be reduced, thereby stimulating investment in new businesses, raising wages for workers, and benefiting society at large.

Clearly these investments and wage raises are not happening. Why? Well, see above where it’s stated that decisions are made by owners of wealth, property, and production and are free of any government intervention. There are currently no laws in place that state that the billions of dollars that the rich don’t pay in taxes every year has to be used in ways that benefit society.

Trickle-down economics is clearly a complete and total failure, and has turned America into the dumpster fire of financial inequality that exists today. Without laws in place to determine how excess wealth is spent, the rich pocket it and continue to get richer while the working class struggle to make ends meet.

Social capitalism would solve every single problem that America faces because of free market capitalism. A social capitalist economy is what we would have under Meritocracy.

Social capitalism is a socially minded form of capitalism where the goal is to invest wealth in making social improvements rather than allowing it to accumulate.

Under social capitalism wealth, property, and means of production are not privately owned. Instead, they are owned and controlled by the people and are heavily regulated by the government.

Meritocracy and social capitalism would do away with trickle-down economics entirely (so absolutely no tax breaks for the rich period) and a maximum wage, or income cap (a limit on how much yearly income one can earn) would be implimented. Any excess wealth would be seized by the government and distributed equally in ways that benefit society at large. Workers, by law, would be paid much higher livable wages, would own a share of any business that they choose to work for, and would be allowed to determine how it’s profits are spent.

Under a social capitalist economy and Meritocracy, it would be recognized that production of goods and services depends entirely on effort put forth by The People, and that therefore it is The People who should profit from them. Imagine how much of a difference could be made in your life if you worked your current job for an hourly wage that you could live comfortably off of, and at the end of the year they cut you a check for your share of the profits that wouldn’t have been possible without you.

Feminine Bodily Autonomy & Crimes Against Humanity

Hyperianism is a pro-choice movement. We support the right to bodily automomy, meaning that we support the right of every individual to make decisions regarding their own body up to and including a woman’s right to seek an abortion.

The insanely strict abortion bills that were recently signed into law in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Ohio all stop short of full on bans by making abortion illegal past 8 to 10 weeks of pregnancy. They make no exceptions for cases of rape, incest, or complications and in at least one case, the new law is so strict that it calls for the investigation and possible criminal prosecution of miscarriages. These are extremeist laws, and unless the Supreme Court in each of these states chooses to overturn them, women will die or be sent to prison because of them.

Every single governor who signed one of these bills into law is guilty of a crime against humanity.

Every single Hyperian should be pissed about this, and they should be doing something about it. I didn’t start writing this blog for my health, I started writing it to be a voice, lead by example, and to give this movement some constructive criticism. To the Hyperians reading this, consider this article a call to action. It’s time to step up, and this is how I’m doing it.

The aforementioned states are not the only ones who are looking at the possibility of passing stricter abortion laws in the coming year. Florida, Louisiana, Illinois, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Minnesota, Maryland, and Texas all have similar bills that are working their way through the legislative process.

As Hyperians we talk a lot about how we want change to happen. How we want to live in a world where men and women are equal in every single way. Well, guess what? Change doesn’t happen unless you make it happen, and that means taking action.

I see your posts, and I know that you all stand with me when I say that women deserve the right to total bodily autonomy. What I don’t see is real world activism.

Social media is great, but it can only do so much guys. The people on your friends list know your position on this issue. If you really want to make an impact, search for the public Facebook pages of the governors of these states and dump your sarcastic memes and voice your outrage there, publicly, where they have to see your post and hear you out. Or, better yet, try this:

Visit usa.gov. Scroll down and click on State Governors. Select the state who’s governor you wish to contact and it will bring you to the contact information page of their website. From there you can choose to snail mail, email, or call them. This is the absolute best way to let a government official know that you don’t agree with a law they have passed. So, regardless of where you live, contact some governors! It doesn’t matter if you live in Nevada, you’re still allowed to tell Alabama’s governor that she’s fucked up big time, and it makes one hell of an impact when the message comes from all over the country.

Let me be clear. If you’re going to voice your opinion over the internet, do it in one of these two ways or it makes absolutely no difference.

The internet can only do so much. The French Revolution didn’t happen because The People sat around and liked each other’s posts, it happened because The People got pissed and took real world action. In 2019, that means getting involved with politics on a state level. That means siding with the Democrats. On a side note, this also means that everyone who thinks they’re being a hero by not voting needs to knock it off and do so.

Each state has a Democratic party. In Minnesota, it’s the DFL (Democratic Farmer Laborer Party). Visit the website for the Democratic Party in your state and find out where the office for your county is. Then, go down there and sign up to volunteer. Doing this opens up some major opportunities. Number one being that it gives you a chance to work on campeigns, meaning you actually get to meet elected officials in person. This is where I’d like to inform those of you that need extra cash that if you are hired to work on a campaign, you get paid.

Doing this doesn’t just give you a chance to speak out against extremeist abortion laws. It gives you a chance to present Meritocratic ideas to the Democratic Party and maybe get some people on board. Think about that.

Also, pro-choice rallies. If you live in one of these states, join them! I’m in Minnesota, and I’m paying attention to the bill that’s currently working its way through the legislator. Minnesota is, thankfully a fairly steady pro-choice state, but that could change if this bill gains traction. If that happens, I plan to be in Saint Paul standing with the pro-choice movement, and I hope that some of you will be standing there with me.

This is how revolutions start. This is the only way you are going to be able to make change happen. We are the gods and goddesses of this world and its time to start acting like it!

Ad Astra,

Merrick

Freedom of Speech & Why It Doesn’t Work

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

This is the introductory paragraph of the First Ammendment of the U. S. Constitution. It was made number one in the Bill of Rights due to the oppression of early American settlers by the British monarchy. The intention was to create a country where everyone has the freedom to practice the religion of their choice, express their personal or political opinions, and criticize their government without fear of retaliation, discrimination, punishment, or persecution.

While the First Ammendment does provide Americans with some benefits, it is also causes several of the problems that America faces in the present. In this article, we are going to break down the First Ammendment, cite and discuss the reasons it doesn’t work, and discuss how freedom of speech would apply if America were a meritocracy. For the sake of length, we will only be discussing the main components of the law which are religion, the press, belief/opinion/expression, demonstration and assembly, and what constitutes an imminent threat. Also, since several of the annotations are so closely related to others, we will be combining them.

Time to piss off the entire internet! Or at least every single irrational individual that doesn’t have the balls to read articles that upset them to the end or at all.

Freedom of Religion/Establishment of Religion/Free Exercise of Religion

These annotations make up the first three sections of the First Ammendment and were put into place due to the religous oppression faced by early American settlers prior to The Revolutionary War. It provides Americans with the right to choose which religion they follow, prevents the federal government from naming or establishing a single religion as the only legal religion, and establishes the separation of church and state.

The First Ammendment was adopted into law in 1791. Now, take a wild guess at how many times since then that it has been violated by the very people who swore to uphold it. The answer is: More than you can even count. Native Americans, for example, weren’t legally allowed to practice their religion until 1978 when The American Indian Religous Freedom Act was signed into law (see American Indian Religous Freedom Act on Wikipedia.) And, if you think that slaves were allowed to practice religions that were native to Africa then you are in dire need of several lessons on American history.

The fact is, despite the First Ammendment being the law of the land, both Native Americans and slaves were routinely persecuted and murdered for openly practicing their religions and were forced by the federal government and state to convert to forms of Christianity.

That is not religous freedom, it is oppression.

In present day, this is the exact law that makes America the most religiously diverse country in the world, and also the least tolerant. How? Because the one thing that every single religous person believes with every fiber of their being is that their religion is the only one that’s correct. Since indoctrination is the name of the game for every single Abrahamic religion, it makes it okay and perfectly legal for individuals and religous organizations to not only force their beliefs down the throats of others, but to discriminate against and openly express hatred for those who don’t follow their faiths or who live lifestyles that their religions deem wrong. And, when called out on their atrocious behavior they use this annotation as a scapegoat and cry about religous oppression.

This is what gives extremist organizations like Westborough Baptist Church the right to picket the funerals of soldiers who were killed in the line of duty with signs that read “America is doomed”, “You’re going to hell”, “God hates you”, “Fag troops”, “Semper fi fags” and “Thank God for dead soldiers” simply because one of their parents (in this case, the soldier’s father) happens to be homosexual.

In fact, the case of Snyder v. Phelps is an excellent example of a religous organization being allowed to use the first ammendment’s annotations on religous freedom to trample all over the rights of others. Not only that, it’s one of many examples where the Supreme Court upheld and provided legal protection for hate speech.

What the freedom of religion annotation ultimately does is, it creates the problem of people who are in the position of being tolerant of others being legally obligated to be tolerant of intolerant, uneducated, beliefs and opinions. It protects the “right” of hateful organizations and individuals to openly express their beliefs regardless of whether or not they are correct.

Freedom of the Press

This is the sixth annotation of the First Ammendment, and is a lengthy slippery slope of gray areas, specifically in regards to matters of national security. However, for this article we will be discussing it as it applies to what the media is allowed to publish.

Freedom of the press was introduced in 1789, and was intended to prohibit federal and state government from dictating which beliefs and opinions individuals and the press were and were not allowed to publish. It applies to written publications such as magazines, newspapers, blogs, and websites as well as television or radio broadcasts and any other form of recorded media. It is what prevents our justice system from sending people who’s published works have been deemed as radical to prison.

The only benefit that this annotation provides in present day America is that citizens are given a vague idea of what’s happening in their country and the rest of the world. It’s major flaw is that are absolutely no laws whatsoever in place that state that the information that’s published has to be based on factual evidence, cannot be based on religous or personal beliefs, or that the full story of events even has to be given to begin with. This means that individuals and media outlets get to choose which parts of the full story they publish and that they are allowed to leave out whichever facts do not support their position.

Fox News and MSNBC are prime examples of two major media outlets that routinely twist stories and leave out evidence based facts that don’t support their position or the position of their viewers. One twists facts and evidence in support of Republicans, the other twists facts and evidence in support of Democrats. Both play key roles in the problem of identity politics and are responsible for creating the massive amount of division that is currently taking place. Not only that, both of these entities are allowed to decide which stories they publish based on whether or not it will bring them views, ratings, and financial gain. Also, both of these outlets are owned and invested in by the elite who are notorious for manipulating them for their benefit.

This annotation is a major problem because it allows biased and incorrect information to be published, and provides citizens with exactly zero rights to get the full story and therefore form their own opinions based unbiased information. Instead, Americans are forced to form their opinions souly on the faith that the information they’re getting is correct, and most of them then choose to view information only from sources that support their opinion.

This means that the only chance American citizens have of viewing unbiased, correct information is to abandon mainstream media and seek out independent and unbiased sources, something that the majority of the population is too lazy to do. These sources can also be extremely difficult to find, especially online.

Clear and Present Danger/Imminent Threat

Annotation number ten of the First Ammendment is almost as long, confusing, and gray area filled as Freedom of the Press because it has to do with which words are used to convey beliefs and opinions and it ties in with Speech Plus, the law that protects the right to peaceful demonstration and assembly.

In Layman’s terms, what this law states is that as long as the words someone chooses to use don’t openly encourage violence or physical harm to others, they are free to say whatever they want regardless of how incorrect, offensive, toxic, hateful, or hurtful it is.

In short, not only does this annotation protect your right to say “fuck the government” and burn the flag, it protects hate speech.

This is another part of the First Ammendment that allows organizations like Westborough Baptist Church express the opinion that “God hates fags”. How? Because according to this section of the law, as long as their signs read “God hates fags” instead of “Kill all fags” they are not in violation since their words are not openly encouraging acts of violence.

Here’s a fun fact. The Ku Klux Klan is single handedly responsible for this annotation coming into existence. That’s right. The KKK has had a hand in shaping America’s Bill of Rights.

In the case of Brandenburg v. Ohio (1969) the Supreme Court not only upheld the KKK’s “right” to openly spew its racist views in public, but, because of this case, created a list of criteria (also called a test in legal terms) that must apply before speech is determined to be an imminent threat to others. In otherwords, it was decided that since the KKK didn’t specifically state that citizens of other racial backgrounds should be killed or physically harmed, it had a “legal right” to express its opinion.

This exact list of criteria was used again in 1990 in the case of R. A. V. v. City of Saint Paul where the Supreme Court struck down the city’s Bias-Motivated Crime Ordnance and reversed the conviction of a teenager who had been found guilty of burning a cross on the lawn of an African American family. Basically, because he didn’t openly threaten or cause physical harm to someone, behavior such as this is perfectly acceptable according to the Supreme Court. Ya know, because instilling the fear of being the victim of a hate crime in an innocent person isn’t damaging at all.

How fucking ass backwards does a society have to be to grant individuals and organizations like these with rights, let alone allow them to shape our constitution?

Freedom of Belief/Opinion/Expression

Because of how vague it is, annotation number eleven is by far the biggest dumpster fire in all of the First Ammendment. In fact, “The Right to Be Stupid” would be much more appropriate. This is the law that gives everyone the right to believe whatever they want and to express their beliefs and opinions in whichever way they see fit. While it is most commonly used in reference to religion, it also covers political beliefs, non-religious personal beliefs, and states that you cannot be punished by the state or federal government because of them.

Basically, according to this law it doesn’t matter if you are racist, homophobic, sexist, a flat earther, or an anti-vaxxer. You are correct. You are protected. You have the constitutional right to spew stupidity in public.

Like Immiment Threat, this annotation is, yet again giving racists, mysogynists, and homophobes protection and rights that they do not deserve, and it forces others to tolerate the expression of their idiotic opinions regardless of the fact that they are a completely toxic threat to other members of society. In fact, in reference to Immiment Threat, it simply refers back to the Clear and Present Danger annotation which, as has already been shown, is completely bullshit.

In addition, if you are an adult that is stuck in 1492 or chooses to believe the opinion of a former porn star over scientists and licensed medical professionals, you are incorrect and your beliefs don’t deserve legal protection. In fact, you have already caused a Measles outbreak and all of your attempts to manipulate science into proving the Earth is flat and that vaccines cause Autism can and have easily been disproven by actual scientists so please stop.

Speech Plus – The Right to Peaceful Demonstration & Assembly

Speech plus and the right to assembly are, for the most part, exactly the same thing. Both annotations give Americans the right to come together for peaceful demonstrations and to demand the government make changes or stop things that they don’t agree with. The only real difference is that speech plus covers propaganda such as signs, leaflets, and informational material whereas the right to assembly basically just states that you have the right to unite, demonstrate, and petition the government.

These annotations sound excellent. People should always reserve the right to stand up to their government and defend their rights. However, given the fact that these laws again, give everyone rights across the board, it’s flawed. The KKK, Neo-Nazi’s, and religious extremists should have zero rights under our constitution, especially the right to petition the government and demonstrate their toxic, hateful, damaging beliefs.

Another problem with these annotations is that given how the federal government and states respond to peaceful protests, they actually don’t exist. In otherwords, Americans have the right to protest on paper, but as soon as they exercise that right the government decides its time to deploy armed police officers and the National Guard who are allowed beat us, shoots us, hit us with tear gas grenades, arrest us, and in extreme cases, murder us regardless of the fact that we are unarmed.

The Dakota Access Pipeline protest that took place in 2016 is a perfect example. Native Americans (so, American citizens) came together to protest a multi-billion dollar, federally funded pipeline project that would have destroyed land that was historically and religously sacred to their tribe and would have endangered the water supply of thousands of people across the country. If you click on the link, you’ll see how the government responded. Heavy artillery, tear gas, beatings, rubber bullets, and arrests were all used in an effort to stop Native Americans from exercising their right to peacefully protest and petition the government.

Now, supporters of the right who only get their information from right-aligned sources will try to hit you with incorrect (not to mention racist) lines like “the damn Indians had guns moron.” when, in fact, protesters didn’t begin to arm themselves until the police and National Guard escalated the violence to the point where self defense was becoming necessary. In fact, to my knowledge, none of those weapons were used. That’s exactly what the Second Ammendment is for. So that you can take up arms against the government if it’s necessary for self defense or the defense of others. Leave it to the right to forget that white people aren’t the only ones who have the right to bare arms.

People should always maintain the right to peacefully protest and demonstrate. The government should not have the right to respond to peaceful protests and demonstrations with violence.

Meritocracy and Freedom of Speech

The only thing that Meritocracy upholds are the five meritocratic principles, which according to the UK Meritocracy Party’s website are:

  1. People before profit
  2. Equal opprotunities
  3. Rewarding merit
  4. Social capitalism
  5. Intellegent government

Since the Meritocracy Party is a world wide political party, wording of these principles may be different depending on country, however, they all essentially mean the same thing.

As you can see, Meritocracy does not support freedom of speech, or at least not total freedom of speech like we have currently. And, now that that statement has made all of the idiots rage quit, we will discuss what that means.

Meritocrats believe in the right to protest and petition the government. That is a right that every single human being on the planet is entitled to indefinitely, and it cannot be taken away. We believe in freedom of the press as long as all of the information is presented and varified as true in an unbiased manner. We believe in the freedom of belief, opinion, and expression as long as your beliefs and opinions are based on unbiased facts and evidence, not religion or personal feelings. And, as long as you are also presenting unbiased facts and evidence, you are free to express yourself or publish your work as you see fit.

Also, on the topic of opinion, under a meritocratic constitution, you have the right to an informed opinion. This means that any opinion that is expressed in public must be supported by evidence, and that unless you’re willing to do the work and educate yourself on a topic, no one cares what your opinion is because you haven’t earned the right to have one in the first place.

When it comes to imminent threat, Meritocrats believe that ALL lines of destructive speech are a danger to society and should not be tolerated in the least. In otherwords, it doesn’t matter if your sign reads “God hates fags” or “kill all fags” or if it reads “go back to Africa”, “death to negros” or “get back in the kitchen”. Under a meritocratic constitution you are in violation of the law. Therefore, if you are racist, sexist, or homophobic, you have no legal right to express your beliefs or opinions for any reason. In otherwords, under a meritocratic constitution, intolerant beliefs and opinions would not be tolerated, and hate speech of any kind would be illegal regardless of the choice of words.

Freedom of religion is also something that meritocrats do not support. In fact, the Abrahamic religions are so abusive and cause so much psychological damage to people that they would be outlawed. If a religion is responsible for racism, sexism, homophobia, war, famine, rape, slavery, and murder it and its followers do not deserve any kind of legal protection or rights.

Now, to the idiots who will finish reading this and claim that meritocrats want to take away freedom of speech, that’s not what’s being said. We support free speech as long as it’s informed and truthful and is not discriminatory against, threatening, or damaging to racial minorities, women, the LGBTQA community, or the rest of society. One thing that Americans are too dense to understand is that there is a huge difference between taking away freedom of speech and telling hate groups and extremists to sit down, shut up, and get out of our society.

Total freedom of speech is one of the many things keeping America divided. Why should it matter what uninformed, uneducated, hateful individuals have to say? Why should they be treated as if they are equal to someone who is well informed and educated? It’s high time that our constitution stop giving morons, bigots, and the insane rights that amount to a legal participation trophy.

Ad Astra,

Meritocracy vs. The Oligarchy

Oligarchy. This word describes America perfectly. If you don’t believe me, here is the definition according to Google.

Americans love to bask in the age old myth of the American dream. You know, the one where anyone can be anything they dream of as long as they put in the hard work? Sadly, Americans don’t want to admit to themselves that no matter how hard they work, money and nepotism will always be the deciding factors when it comes to everything from admission to our best colleges and universities to our country’s leadership. In otherwords, the American dream that was based on the idea of meritocracy does not, and has never existed.

The rich elite are the ones who truly run this country, not The People. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at Capitalism, specifically, the theory of a trickle down economy where the rich get rich and they therefore invest, create jobs, raise wages, and do all of these things that benefit The People financially. It sounds great on the surface, until you realize that none of this is happening and that you’re being fed a line of bullshit.

Instead of investing their wealth in things that would benefit America as a whole, the elite’s hoard their wealth, and use it to do things that only benefit them, and that includes maintaining control over our elections, politicians, justice system, and education system. In addition, they use a combination of wealth and family or social connections to weasle their way into positions of power. Positions that they are not qualified to hold, that they then use to manipulate the system for their benefit even further.

In America, the elite get to go to the best schools, they get the best healthcare, the best jobs, and they get it all because of who they know or who their family is rather than their individual merit and qualifications. Does that sound like a country that’s founded on freedom and equality to you? Fuck that! The elite are the reason that financial inequality and poverty exist in America, not to mention the rest of the world. These people are a cancer that needs to be cut out of society.

So… Here’s a new word: Meritocracy.

Just this brief definition sounds a hell of a lot better than the oligarchy that exists now, doesn’t it?

If America were to become a meritocracy, individual merit, talent, and qualifications would be considered over wealth, family ties, or social connections. In fact, a person’s wealth, who their family is, and who their friends are wouldn’t matter and would not be taken into consideration.

Merit would be the deciding factor for everything from who goes to which school or university to who our political leaders are. The average citizen would be given just as much of a chance at getting an ivy league education, a high paying job, or holding a public office as a Trump, Rockefeller, or Vanderbilt.

In fact, if America were a meritocracy, an inheritance tax of one hundred percent of a person’s accumulated wealth would prevent vastly wealthy dyanistic families like the Trump’s, Rockefeller’s, and Vanderbilt’s from being able to gain any kind of financial dominance over the rest of society.

In addition, public offices would be held by those who are qualified to hold them, and who holds them would be decided by people who are experts in those departments. For example, our Secretary of Education would be an educator that is elected by other educators. Who sounds like a more qualified candidate to you? Someone who has spent years working in our education system and can therefore use their qualifications, talent, and experience to improve it for the better of everyone else that has been elected by other experts in education, or some rich bitch with a Karen haircut who is not an educator, was not elected by expert educators, has never attended a public school in her life, and thinks that guns should be carried on our campuses because “bears”? The choice is pretty much common sense, don’t you think?

For America, Meritocracy is the inevitable political system of the future. Do you want equal rights and opportunities? Financial equality? Gender equality? The absolute end of nepotism ruling the world? Then become a Meritocrat. Support The Meritocracy Party. It is the only rational choice.

Ignorance is Bliss: Old Adages and Timeless Truths

Actually, the entire quote goes like this:

To each his sufferings: all are men,
Condemn’d alike to groan—
The tender for another’s pain,
Th’ unfeeling for his own.
Yet, ah! why should they know their fate,
Since sorrow never comes too late,
And happiness too swiftly flies?
Thought would destroy their Paradise.
No more;—where ignorance is bliss,
‘Tis folly to be wise.

It is the very last passage of Thomas Gray’s 1742 poem Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College. In it’s entirety, the message of the poem is that, in a world where so many people choose to remain ignorant, it is painful and sometimes even dangerous to become wise. When we remain ignorant, not only do we become numb and unsympathetic to the suffering of others, we become numb and unsympathetic to our own and deny that it exists at all. And, what’s worse, we feign sympathy with ‘best wishes’ and ‘thoughts and prayers’ instead of showing any real emotion. When applied to today’s society, nothing could be more accurate.

You see, ignorance equals the easy life. Choosing ignorance over wisdom means never having to involve yourself with, think about, or experience the real world. It means getting to sit on your ass on an electronic device of your choosing while you share a post about ending world hunger on Facebook. Of course you do this while stuffing your face with a number 14 combo meal from McDonald’s before going back to ignoring world hunger entirely and binging on Netflix.

This is exactly what is expected of us by the ruling classes of the world. We are expected to ‘speak out’ and ‘show our support’ and ‘raise awareness’ for world issues, but after taking two seconds to share a post we’re expected to shut up and do nothing else. I garauntee you that not a single person on your news feed takes any action in response to the posts they share. In fact, unless someone comments on it, they probably forget about it completely. In their mind, they shared the post so therefore they did their part and are now free to go back to serving their country in Call of Duty.

In otherwords, when the message of this poem is applied to modern society, people are a bunch of lazy, stupid fucks who would rather ignore problems and pretend they don’t exist than become educated, take action, and solve them. Why is that?

Because choosing wisdom over ignorance means having to experience pain and suffering. It means hard work and being forced to take action and stand up for one’s self and others.

In addition, the ignorant will always try to silence the wise. Your attempts to educate the ignorant will be brushed off and disregarded. They will call you a ‘special snowflake’ or ‘libtard’ and scream to the rooftops about how your attempt provide them with the education they willfully refuse to give themselves is somehow a violation of their (insert constitutional right they actually know nothing about here).

Being wise, in many ways, means being shunned by society. It means facing ridicule from family and friends. It means you cannot be afraid of being labeled as an outcast and ditched by people you thought cared about you. It means being Gandalf against the Balrog, taking a stand, and saying “your ignorance shall not pass!” even if you stand alone.

Which is it? Are you the wise and brave Gandalf who will stand tall and strong in the name of wisdom, or the ignorant Balrog who is hell bent on destroying us all?
