New Book, Just Published: The Meat Generation



Another year has passed, and the time has come to publish another book of essays. This year’s offering has turned out to be a rather weighty tome, at 1.5 lbs. (0,68 kg) and 352 pages. As usual, it includes both the public blog posts and the ones that remain hidden behind a paywall. Also as usual, those who have been supporting me at the $10/month level (and have provided a shipping address) will receive a free copy. The book is available for order only through Amazon, which offers direct shipping in all of the following: US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Japan. Others will need to pay for international shipping. (Pick the nearest country that's on the list.)

I can think of quite a few reasons why someone might want to buy this book:

• Those of my readers who haven’t splurged on $1/month to get past the paywall will get a chance to catch up on everything I’ve written over the past year.

• Writings published on the internet are ephemeral but a paper book is a physical object that will persist over time and will remain perfectly legible after the lights go out. You will be able to rely on it as a sort of time capsule of ideas, to look back and see what 2019 was all about.

• Perhaps you have family members, friends, acquaintances and neighbors who spend money on personal trainers, psychologists, booze and recreational drugs, all in an effort to stay sane in an increasingly insane world. If they start railing against the injustices of the world, please hand them a copy of my book and tell them it’s what Dr. Orlov ordered. It offers a much cheaper alternative for building up the independence of thought and the mental fortitude to make it through life with their sanity intact.

• You can check whether someone is mentally stable and capable of simultaneously entertaining several mutually contradictory notions without suffering cognitive dissonance simply by handing them a copy of my book. If all goes well, it will give you plenty to talk about. But if it “triggers” them, run away!

On Systemic Corruption

The Meat Generation

To the globalist elites who are still attempting to control your fate, you are either milk or meat. The moment they can no longer milk you for debt payments or rent, you and your children will be asked to report to the abattoir. But you have to volunteer to be milked or slaughtered; otherwise, processing you would be too difficult to do efficiently and profitably. Therefore, it is possible to think of ways to make yourself too expensive for them to exploit, so that they might give up on trying to use you for further self-enrichment and leave you in peace.

On Systemic Corruption

The philosopher Slavoj Žižek, among others, has drawn a useful distinction between subjective violence, which takes place between individuals, and systemic violence, which is perpetuated by institutions. Žižek is a Marxist, and part of his justification for introducing this distinction is to justify revolutionary violence as a means of opposing the systemic violence of oppressive systems. This may or may not work, since revolutionary violence is often itself systemic, borne of an ideology that dictates radical change of one sort of another, while the end result of revolutionary change along Marxist lines is often a totalitarian state which raises systemic violence to a whole new level. No matter; I think the distinction is still useful.

It is useful because it makes it possible to draw a certain axis—between free action and compelled action—that runs through not just violence but every type of vileness and perfidy. Subjective violence is an instance of the former: you punch a person you don’t like as an expression of your personal opinion. Systemic violence, on the other hand, is where, for instance, depersonalized knuckle-dragging drones have no choice but to imprison parents for their children’s truancy—nothing personal, the rules are the rules. This axis runs through many aspects of individual and group behavior. Lying, for instance, can be done privately (to spare someone’s feelings or to teach a fool a lesson) or publicly (such as excluding close to 100 million long-term unemployed Americans when calculating the official unemployment rate).
