Does Too Much Chaos Breed Freedom?

Tug on the puppets
Till the puppeteers crumble
Alongside statues
Elsewise, leave the birds somewhere to shit

 

She's got me wondering
Does too much chaos
Breed freedom?

 

We've seen that traditional
Chaos
Does not
We've seen that "new normal"
Chaos
Does not
Simply put, controlled
Chaos
Does not

 

And we're clear that lack of
Chaos
Cannot
For absolutely zero
Chaos
Is total order

 

We call that a quiet day in a prison

 

So it seems a good question
Does too much chaos
Breed freedom?

 

Here and now, here's what I think
I think we should tug, tug hard
Tug on the puppets
Till the puppeteers crumble
Alongside the statues
And find out

 

If too much chaos
Breeds freedom
And whether we like freedom
Afterall

 

But, look, I'm fine to weigh on it together
Bring some sandwiches while we sit and think it over
I want to be sure to feed the birds real, real well
Just in case 'yesterday' is how we wish to continue

Chaos

Greek Mythology: "The primeval emptiness before things came into being" - I had to go there. see Nyx. 
See also Anarchy.

Both are precedents for unrestrained cataclysmic corporeality. Freedom as unrestrained by laws or mores. Works as a manifesto for the immortal.

How can mere chaos/order contend?

Yes. Absolute chaos is,

Yes. Absolute chaos is, essentially, setting ourselves back to a primal/primative place. Understanding "chaos" is important. Chaos is not implicitly and explicitly "violence". It is the mere act of removing all constraints - it is letting nature take the wheel back and reshuffle the deck. Civilization was designed to hone nature, yet our second try at it (or third, or fourth, who knows) has failed badly. This does, indeed, open up the door for violence. And, of course, violence will attempt to reign supreme with constraints removed. Yet we kid ourselves if we don't admit that our current order is incredibly violent - much of that violence is kept out of the eyes of first world consumers, is all. Still, it's creeping up even on the margins of the decadent daily. Scan the world over, though, and it's already infested with the brutality of this violence: the greatest measure of just how violent our order is comes in the knowledge that 25,000 children die of hunger every day - that's due to the an order controlled by armies, whom in turn are controlled by politicians, who in turn are controlled by their corporatist rulers. I'm not an anarchist, but I can understand the rationale. Perhaps, I'm on a border near being a Collapsist. I may have just made that up. Perhaps I can write a book about this political philosophy of Collapsism and get fame among a few hundred followers? :)

 

Anyway, the upside of absolute chaos, or, to use more of a euphemism, a "primative return" and a reboot, is the ability to achieve a true 'great reset' - not the one being sold by borderless billionaires to move us deeper into a technocratic order. And, perhap,s returning to our ancestral roots is all that is left to do? To go backwards with the hope that, perhaps, next time around, we get it right - or at least better. Can we really fix a system so broken and doomed, while we are so deep inside of it? Aren't we all playing within the rules and fences it built, and aren't our expanses of progress within it's limits, even when we go into the seeming wilderness? Externally, of course. Within oneself, no other can travel and bring fences without permission from the 'User'.

 

As I see it, we will almost surely collapse one way or another. It appears to be inevitable. It seems unrealistic that enough people will escape the box that keeps us marching to the beat of the golden sociopaths which rule over our world. Swarming Capitol Hill to keep a billionaire in power is not absolute chaos. It's controlled chaos. But people couldn't see they were being played. Attempting to crush misguided voices is absolute order, which is equally misguided a thing to support. Again, people can't see they are being played. Ultimately, both are incredibly violent, both are controlled. So, my greatest concern of all is who is controlling the collapse. If it is controlled by the ruling class, then it's seeds will surely grow to be crueler and more destructive than it's parents. If it is controlled by the "common man", as in walking away from the system and refusing to participate any longer, than there are other possibilities. All of our options are grim, at this point. We are destined to collective suffering. Perhaps, if we each start to walk away now, we won't need a complete reboot (though that seems highly doubtful), just a step back of a few decades. But I feel, if I had to choose, I'd take unbridled chaos over controlled chaos. This coming from a person who has lived a very non-violent life, and plans to finish out his life that way. I'd rather fend with the chaos of nature than with the Order of Man. Controlled chaos, every single day it's been permitted, has driven us deeper into what we live in now.

 

Anyway, I blame you for this : p You got me and my hopeless mind started on this long, and probably pointless, string of thoughts with your writing yesterday. I wish with all my heart we could be better to each other, but I think to do so we each need to walk away from what we've been born and/or grown into. I think it's the only way. While the elitists try to pick up the pieces, we can walk into their guilded coffers and starting feeding hungry mouths, we can unchain ideas to feed hungry minds. Isn't that life?

I hearby dub this movement

I hearby dub this movement 'Non-violent Collapsism', to make it's mission clear and utopian as possible ; )

 

"Just walk away."
