Andrewmarkmusic: decoding the headlines
and official narratives in short, terse pithy aphorisms!

                      “Well, actually, three wrongs don’t make a right.”

I’ll link below Rand delineating the ideas of Nietzsche. I’ve been critical of both of these thinkers in previous blogs. I’ve pointed out that Nietzsche reified and made an idol out of Schopenhauers WILL, and wrongfully so…So, I agree with Rand on this one that Nietzsche elevated phenomenology over empiricism. 

And no matter how you slice it selfishness is not a virtue, Ms. Rand, and any coherent rational moral philosophy would not suggest that it is. It would be better to eliminate the cause of needful altruism by making sure everyone gets access to a small plot of land as a birthright and that the education system is overhauled to teach everyone how to become sustainably productive on their land. If we do this we can wave goodbye to the welfare state with its fake welfare systems which are entirely toxic and manipulative. Moreover, there are those on ‘esoteric boulevard’ who rightfully suggest that the modern nation-state is now the vehicle for *toxic parenting, and I couldn’t agree more; although these same people suggest we should murder our parents and that’s a stance I can’t abide. We need GOOD governance not the removal of all governance. See my What Should A Healthy Spiritual Economy Look Like. 

I’ve suggested in other posts that the modern nation-state is a fusion of Marx and Rand but its arguably a fusion of Marx, Rand, and Nietzsche! And a terrible fusion at that. On an aside here: Miles Mathis hinted at taking a look at who Nietzsche was and my shekels say he’ll find that things are not what we are told in that regard and those findings will give us an aha moment when it comes to my speculation that modern society is a fusion of Marx, Rand, and Nietzsche...Surprise surprise Gomer! Well, not so much…Miles, don’t be a slacker and get to work on that ‘german’ philosopher…

I do agree with Rand that the will to power is a mystical notion not grounded in rational thought but she would never concede what will is being powered on this earth…The Demiurges! As for Apollo and Dionysius? Healthy people need a good blend of both so it’s not one or the other…BTW: Christian Gnostics place reason at the top of the hierarchy and is personified by the Aeon Logos who battled the irrational claims and religion of the Demiurge while on earth. We also tend to be ‘hippieish’ so we do personify Dionysian mores to certain degrees…

Humans are born into slavery here and the archons who wiped our memory in the bardos are our masters so I hope this clarifies what the hell these two thinkers are talking about. So, in a sense, Rand is right and we are born with a blank slate: it’s just that that blank-slate is a metaphysical manipulation. Now, can man become superman in the Nietzschean sense, then? If they want to become one with our slave-owning masters they certainly can but that just makes these people assholes, IMO…Did Rand just say, SOUL? I believe she did! Again, though, she is missing the reality of the metaphysical substrate that undergirds the tabla-rasa–obviously, I get why she does this…

On ethics…In a sense, I do side with Rands take on it although I’m not entirely convinced that there is, in reality, an objective rational moral standard…If this place is a demiurgic construct then the idea in itself is rather absurd. I could list a very long list of democides and genocides in the 20th century alone which argues much more for a near entirely flawed construct…As for innate characters, drives, dispositions, and talents? The archons and their bloodlines make a mockery of the idea so I’m afraid it’s predetermined, Ms. Rand…You lose on that point although I get why you hold the position that you do. So it’s Rand’s materialist presuppositions that get her into trouble here. 

On agency: everything man has and doesn’t can’t be assessed accurately until one comes to know that ‘robber-baron pirates’ have ruled the earth for a very long time and that the casino they have created is set up so you’ll not ever win unless you align yourself fully and completely with their endless metaphysical bullshit and disregard for cosmic truth…

NOTE*: Covid-19 and government over-reaction is an example of the toxic mother personified in the modern nation-state…
