No, listen, what happened was this: they lied to you, sold you ideas of good & evil, gave you distrust of your body & shame for your prophethood of chaos, invented words of disgust for your molecular love, mesmerized you with inattention, bored you with civilization & all its usurious emotions.
There is no becoming, no revolution, no struggle, no path; already you're the monarch of your own skin--your inviolable freedom waits to be completed only by the love of other monarchs: a politics of dream, urgent as the blueness of sky."
-Hakim Bey (T.A.Z.)

I am a staunch supporter of proletariate solidarity. (but also into post-left anarchism) This means I find all the petty, multi-tiered class warfare we endure on our so called "social ladder" of "freedom" and "reward" to be a shell game designed to distract us and render social evolution impotent. For instance I believe the mutual disdain that various socioeconomic groups have been coerced into feeling -by the dispassionate, unreasonable, avaricious plutocracy of America today- may in fact lead to human (if not planetary) extinction.
It may seem contradictory to some to find a denouncement of class warfare in the same paragraph in which the ruling elite are slandered. However, one must remember that when discussing the ruling elite we are not talking about "anyone who makes over 100k/year", as some ill-informed people seem to think... we are talking about people you and I have not and will never see. You're talking about political forces that have existed in one form or another since the outset of "civilisation". They are a chosen few who's reign depends solely on the great toiling masses of the world and their belief in the necesity of it. Their reign is not required and never was; it is a symptom of industrialisation. Call it technopathocracy (the rule of sick machines), call it democracy, call it plutocracy... just question your belief in it and inform yourself and your loved ones that there is a better way.
Many so called "Christians" would do well to learn the real philosophy of compassion... born of empathy and co-operation. It is an undisputable fact that for more than 95% of human history our species has lived in co-operation with each other as well as sustainably with the environment. One must remember that when the societal trends of today and the influence of status quo academia lead you to believe that humanity is inherantly hierarchical -has been and always will be so- not only are you poisoning your own mind with sheer untruth... you contribute toward an arrest of our ability as a society to end this tiny moment of history in which our people have allowed there to exist reward in avarice... and truly begin to heal -to evolve.
If I'm boring you, you are probably a boring person and perhaps would rather discuss your hairstyle, accessories, & wardrobe? I hope not, but if that is the case, or if you had a lot of trouble understanding what I meant... we might not enjoy micro-cohabitation. These remarks are not meant at all to be sexist; I would not want to listen to a man discuss his hairstyle, et cetera either.
At the same time I am very aware of the bitter taste of tedium found in traditional methods of political action. This isn't really how I converse socially, nor is this an extrememly relevant diatribe; its just a kind of snap-shot of my thought process and value system.

Romance, Spirituality, Philosophy:
We have laid down our pistols and accepted the strength wrought by our shared vulnerability. Peace found in the baring of our true nature, with intimacy as the conduit of this, our most important endevour. Embracing and perpetuating this balance of energy and using it to know better the cohesive spirit that runs through all things.
Romance expells the steely coldness of logic...causes the predictable and systematic function of brain chemical ego reward looping found in human reproduction to take on a life of wonder, awe, elation, disenchantment, and sorrow.
There is no acceptable catharsis, we must always seek to know and to love... in order to find the wisdom of balance.
Hahaha, I guess this profile update is more frightening than the last, oh well... call it a filter.
