first they came for the metal heads and no one did a thing and/or I don’t need to like what the artist says to defend their right to say it.
ATTENTION: metal heads, artist and those who dwell in the underground – if you haven’t seen the video where varg vikernes and his wife defend themselves after being arrested on terrorist threat, only to be later let go, please watch it and share!
the rest of you, this is an important look into YOUR future… and while folks like varg and his wife stand up and tall and fight back hoping that you’re listening – we know you’re not.
really, give it a try… this is the moment – we are in the moment of unity or decline.
investigation isn’t what this case and abuse of power is about – is it? this is about rights being violated and even worse – the inditement of thought crimes. an investigation is one thing, the powers that be demand a show of force to break the spirit of others, who in this instance might have a thought contrary to the norm.
those in control got that show of force as the police shot thru and smashed the door to gain entry of this family with pregnant wife and children to gain entry.
reminds me of ruby ridge.
here’s the deal – this is the typical scapegoat move – look over here at the satanic nazi while we fuck you over there. this is a case of the authorities going after someone who is thinking different and is opinionated. a person who explores politics that are not popular with a majority of people. how long is it until your ideas are a danger?
you should be ashamed for not being either better informed of this case or not having the mind to understand the domino effect this shit has… I have worked in this area (censored, shunned and persecuted artists and reg. folk who are creative and/or expressive and have been or are being harassed) since I was 16… this is an extension of the 2live crew debate, just a different color…. this is an important case, it’s the dominos falling.
at the least this action by the french government and how “thought crimes” are gone after, punished and prosecuted will be studied by the higher ups of all nations added to and made to work more efficient… a happy, palatable fascism is our future.
at the worst, because we are all linked and communicating, a global control or law will take place based on the masses reactions, or I should say, lack of reactions to abuses of power like this. I know this might sound paranoid or conspiracy-ish, but really, we now exist in a different time than the golden years of 2live crew, we are of a global economy and we are all linked via the net… some, now in exile, might even say controlled and monitored by places like FB who have become a branch of the government… if not a legit branch, they have at least become a soil enriched fertilizer helping those branches grow big and strong.
I’d also say in regards and relation to my 2live crew comparisons vs. varg, this is about cultures that aren’t easily explained or understood… there seems to be a huge cultural war happening and the prevailing, whitewashed, religious culture isn’t something I’m interested in nor do I feel it is any good for human kind, beauty, or expression of any kind… much like some try to save the extinct species, we must to help to protect cultures who are on the verge of extinction for what would the world be if we were all the same.
this case is about human rights and of course the birth right of thought and speech, in the state of creativity, in the country of expression, in the universe of art.
if the creative community backs artists, any artists being fucked with, they show strength and gain respect… and maybe there will come a time where the artist community will become some sort of political powerhouse like the politicians who claim they are in charge… a community who will represent artists who will eventually take money from the NEA and wield their new found power to do a poster that will help to elect the next president… it’s a vicious cycle and you are either a check and balance or a pawn.
this isn’t about the majority caring, it’s about the artistic community caring, based on their own greed and needs, the same way the journalistic community should care about the wiki-leaks issue… not because they find assange cute or repulsive but because of their own greed – it’s time for folks to be more greedy and look past their personal preferences and even past the big picture and to start looking at the entire picture.
for me, it’s not even in my mind that anyone out there is listening or cares… I think 99% are fucking cows being herded to slaughter, being told what is right and wrong, what fun is and what it aint – I post this shit for me, so I might continue to do what I can do, express myself and to try and make the pendulum swing the way I think it should – and that direction is LESS control and MORE freedom – total freedom.
I don’t agree with everything varg says… it’s an idea, a thought… there is so much to fight that is in action, moving towards you and me and semi-real that we might want to pay attention to… like police breaking down the door of an artist for his blog.
I’m sort of blown away that most won’t back him because they feel, if he were in charge he’d want others censored, so they move to censor him. a wild and fucked up cycle indeed.
are varg’s politics that of which need to eliminate them before they influence or… are those who won’t defend him, worried about his ideas because, they are ideas they see people gravitating to? and if that were to happen power and control switch to something that doesn’t serve the present power structures greed.
if that’s the case, what are the laws good for? why would we vote? when do we admit it’s all about childish manipulation and grow the fuck up??
be more greedy people. want more freedom.
