I lost your game? The image simply criticizes modern Enlightenment intellectuals. As their predecessors, these cretins take pride in rejecting the teachings of the Old Church as they been thoroughly discredited, but have not progressed past the theological refuse which is human equality.

User avatar #57354 - arisaka (02/11/2014) [-]
As for the why, the same reason they moved all the homeless people (who are likely going to die, just like some did in Vancouver): to give the illusion of a totally clean city.

Are you trying to make a statement on modern systematic cultural distrust of the non-religious, or am I just missing the point?
User avatar #57119 - arisaka (02/08/2014) [-]
Naweh, just that being opposed to religious tolerance of any kind supposedly makes you an asshole, no matter what your argument is, left or right. From tolerant leftists to 'libertarian' republicans.

I'm not talking about how something is marketed or how successful it is, I'm talking how it is. When more is created from less, it can be appreciated both because it's usually creative and unique and all of that and because you can appreciate it for the fact that it did so much with so little alone. How much money something makes is a different matter entirely.
User avatar #56035 - arisaka (01/26/2014) [-]
Yeah. I kind of re-read your comment there.

You should look into the art movement of minimalism. I think you'd really like it. It's not QUITE what you're saying (as in it's more artsy-fartsy than videogame music and it's not always about how GOOD something looks - art is a lot about ideas) but the concept is fascinating.

That's part of what I'm trying to say. For example, video game music. With a lot of the new stuff, it sounds nice, but it isn't unique. Going into the old stuff, more of it sounds fresh, new and unique not because they had a lot to work with, but because they didn't have nearly as much. Scarcity fosters ingenuity in the arts.
User avatar #56023 - arisaka (01/25/2014) [-]
From a minimalist perspective that makes sense but I don't think that it can be expanded past that theory.

Art in the age of mechanical reproduction works like this:

Before the avant-garde, someone creates something really neat. It spreads into the avant-garde scene and is marketed as such. It sells, and is then therefore marketed. People create more of the same because it sells. Artistic ingenuity is completely null.

You live in fucking Montreal? Why did you even have the occupied movement?

Also the occupy movement could have been better if the people weren't so stupid and dis-organized, maybe what they are saying is 100% right. But its really a bunch of hippies and stupid people as the majority. Sadly, i can't see change occuring unless a violent revolution occured.
User avatar #55473 - arisaka (01/14/2014) [-]
There was a calling for people everywhere to have their own occupy manifestations with a broader, straight-forward anticapitalist attitude. Les Habitants have a history of protest and struggle. We know what it's like. The student movement, like I said, was in full force. There was some serious shit going down.

Try to look at the bigger picture and realize history is not a set of "isolated" events. The two movements were not parallel.
The goal of the movement was to raise awareness and to say "we're upset".

Individuals within the milliue can say WHATEVER THEY WANT. Moderates can call for reform. Radicals can call for revolution. Bourgeois can call for cake.

It doesn't matter. The movement was an awareness campaign. It was opposed to advanced capitalism and the institutions that exist NOW. Go around the city - you'll find tons of graffiti that are reminiscent of may 1968 in France. It is the modern capitalist machine they are protesting against, not the lassiez-faire stuff your grand-pappy was used to. Montreal is the archetype city for THAT kind of movement.

It's a very distorted perception of what was really going on there. I talked to all sorts of people; moderates, who were looking to learn, to experience, people who just interested in what was happening, and of course frustrated workers as well.

There were people of all ages; I hung out with 70 year old people as often as I did with people my own age.

People wearing Crass t-shirts were cooking up vegan food as people played music and lectures were given. The workshops were interesting but I didn't go to many. I remember an art collective showed up and encouraged people to paint their hands and stick it on the canvas. A band even showed up at one point. It was neat, totally non-violent. People picked up after themselves.

The people saying that the occupiers didn't know what they wanted were morons. Sure, it got a little watered down and there were some bandwaggoners. But a lot of different people were there for different reasons (I wasn't there for the same reasons as someone who was there for employment issues). But the movement was designed to bring attention to certain issues, and I think it was successful at that. Here in Montreal they kind of got outshined by the student movement, but the two kind of coincided with eachother and eventually all the occupiers were wearing un carré rouge, the symbol of the student movement.

Neat!

My point was that Occupy is something you had to experience. It was more prevalent in the larger cities (more people to participate).

We had workshops, teachers giving lessons, people cooking, caring for each other, etc. It was a wonderful experience for me and the portrayal it got in the media did not represent it well in the slightest bit.
