The Left Column

Politics for Poets

I keep reading about 'Internet Bill of Rights'. Then people try to get other people to come up with censorship algorithms. "I don't like pictures of scarey clowns" meanwhile the site has a 'block user' feature. Use the feature. No site redesign needed.

And as far as a site goes, if someone is abusing other people through it, making threats, then treet it at the level of credibility. If the site is said to have upwards of 20 million viewers, and someone is posting lurid and desgusting images and making threats to hurt 'you peasants' or whatver, then does that person get surprised when a real person shows up? And says 'explain this'? I think that creeps get what the give, in that sense.

I make minetest things. I do it in minetest, and I do it locally. So I have thought about 'how come I don't pout up my own creations on a page and let other people see it.' then I thought 'well, I shoudl at least go and see what other people have. so I set up and went into a world. It was easy. I had to give myself a name and apassword and then I was in, that easy. So what did I find?

It started out where I was way underground and all the stuff was dumping on me, the whole place was blocks of quarry material and water everywhere so I said 'get out of this'. Eventually I reached what would be called 'the surface' but it had the sense of a skyworld (a sky world is built in the sky. There is no bottom. It's all sky and no die (youcan fall but you won't hit anything). OK you can always hit something. (maybe not). It's a video game. There doesn't have to be a 'ground'.

When I got to the surface there were other players there. I am not sure if these were real players as the sprite, or it was some kind of AI> What I saw was that the whole topside was burning or covered over in lava. What I also realized that for something the 'revert if chnged' feature seemed to be in force. So I went on a rampage of tryign to put out a lot of the fires and it occured to me that no matter what anyone was trying to make there were other people, probably jealous, who wanted to destroy it all. Or why? Myabe not jealousy but just maliciousness? They don't think that it's anyone's something? They have to dump lava all over it.

And isn't that what the channels are, in a sense? But even though there were those placing lava-source nodes above other people's work, there were still people in their trying to toil out something. What? It was intersting stuff. But the world builder mods were not there. So it was all single block click stuff, one block placed at a time and no tiling or stacking or anything complex and gigantic. Those things are easy to craft in a world builder world.

The larpers and the pelicans and the concern fraggers at teh channels are akin, in some sense, to those who place lavesource in someone else's creation in a minetest world to try and ruin things. In the minetest world you could disable the lava source node. Or you could have it self expire if it encounters something that someone has built? But then it's not the same game anymore. The lava is something that lets other things happen. If you bring water to it it will make all kinds of interesting minerals that can then be transformed into useful building materials. That is the way that the game is supposed to work (in that mod).

The reason for the world ruiners? Selfishness of some sort? Perhaps as a way to try and get people to go to a different world, the one that they run? Is that what is happening on the chans when the sick larpers start in with their threats? Someoen posted 'did anyone talk to the three letter agency' about the Pennywise clown picture. I guess you could. What are thy going to do? go talk to the fool? who will probably say 'no, we do this to see what we scare up. And to harden people to the diabolical meanness of certain aspects, I'm hnot really an evil clown creation of popular fiction come to life on the infinity channel. I'm just a bunch of pixels on the screen. I'm a nothing burger.;

At which point let's hope that our dreamy whitehat Fed (with gigantic concern as well as biceps, he's the kind of guy you love having as a neighbor.) tells the larper that 'yes, it's an anonymous channel but you still can't put out threats of genocide clown behavior and threaten to anhillate, muee hee hee, your oposition.

"But I have free speech . . . "

Yes, for some behavior, even if it is roll playing (role playing?), the larping could also be seen as criminal incitment and threatening. You want to push your free speech to the limit? The speech is free, the behavior (posting threats) is real, criminally real. There are no excuses, fools. Stop with the larping.

Remember this: if someone is really planning horror, they aren't usually going to 'dress the part'

As far as an Internet Bill of Rights? I think that the ideas involved still need a lot of work. There is no easy answer as to what constitutes Internet 'freedom'. And the idea of 'open systems' is only as far as the end of the cable. The one it connects to? It's a black box and perhaps not open at all.

One thing is certain: private international conglomeranters, fronts for secret wells of capital set up by ? ? ?; and run by ? ? ?; should not own and control the dissemination of data, the collection of data, the storage of data, and the surveylance to makes the data. And the making sure that the larpers are not real . . . so that everyone is safe (which is an important part of any real civil society. (the fake civility of the incivil society where they would rather have to talk to their hand and don't really care what you are saying? )all of that.

These things need to be better worked out. And all data shouldn't be in a system run by one giant entityt or corporation. So I'd say 'the right to privacy' includes data. But what about data that is needed under a court order. Give the court order and if the data isn't provided than treat it the same way that it would be if they were paper records.

Here is a run down of some current accusations concerning the networking infrastructure and surveylence society that has sprung up, like kudzu, in our wonder world: The problem some say, the recent problems are,(some say) that some few have access to stuff (stuff: data and records, dossiers, of copious information; access to hidden methods, 'back channels' to devices, are alledged, as well as 'hacking of the brain' through various methodologies, much of which is derided in constant attack when ever it is discussed on a chan which says that it's not just crap or they wouldn't waste their time trying to counter it and that leads me to the idea of the singing toilet that a crazy person (in a Kafkaesc story) thinks is TP ULTRA (why not TB for toilet bowl?) and that his toilet was compromised by a bad plumper and that it talks to him while he is sleeping through the singing of the drips . . . and it's trying to get him to . . . do things. It sings out . "Flush me. Flush me!". He finds himself sleep walking at the toilet and flushing it. "I suppose that's better than needing to change your sheets at 3AM because you wet the bed." his friedn snarks at him. trying to make it all just seem like a joke.

So, yes, the story might be seen as a joke: that the brain can be hacked and that elctromagnetic or aucustical singals can create a different method of hearing and that would be a way to 'get into someone's head'. But they would still have free will and can then tell the voices in their head to STFU (shut the faucet off?)

I'd finish that little snippit of fable by having the friend remind his adled companion that the dream was to do something that was reasonible and useful: flushing a toilet after using it. "If the toilet ever tells you to do something wrong, I am sure that you will be wise enough to not do it."

"That's right. Just because I think doesn't me that the thought is a direction to action. Sometimes it's just the residue of something else, and without any purpose or use. I really don't have to follow along and do whta it 'says'." Fable complete (needs work) point of it: you might hear 'voices' in your head. You don't have to listen or agree. You really can tell them to Shut the faucet off.

That doesn't actually get to the other point, which I obfuscate, perhaps unintentionally. There are some allegations that some aspects of the system of failsafes and controls can be compromised, though it would be extrodinary and non sanctioned use of those systems. In fact this does imply a misdesign of those systems: in that they could be used for ill purpose so easily once the gear got known. If this is true we have a serious situation. People would have access to data and methods and controls, and recording equipment that they shouldn't have access to, and they could use the data and controls to do really horrible things, black mail, plane crashes, car crashes, etc. The accusation that has actually happened . . . would reasonable be answered through indictments or libel lawsuits. Will there be indictments? Will there be lawsuits? We are still waiting.









 


I was Up all Night

I told you

I was up all night

I was up all night
not to make a fight
but to make it right
and to make the light

Told you

Oh the wish of dreaming songs
that all can sing along
even those out of tune
howling as they swoon.

Oh this hard fact
of buzz kill
stories
the week before.
Take note of that sarrow
nothing more.

You didn't cause it
so why feel so blue?
And is there anything really
that you could do?

Just to post these lamoid
draft poems, so chilly
on my unread front page
posted by billy
whose always been inclined
to run on in his mind
and produce content that is silly.

Ah, silly billy,
willy nilly
oh so silly.

if you don't have proper fonts installed you won't see what this picture shows: the output of the echo command with unicode symbols as input. If you are blind basically the unicode are symbols that you could feel as shapes. If you have a 'font box', which would be like that divice with all the pins in it that you can place your hand inside, and the shape of your hand will appear on the surface. If such a thing locked, it would then let a blind person feel it and they would feel the shape. such a device that does that for font shapes would greatly aid the blind. It would be a 'kind of' high resolution new-braille. Call it a 'sean-box' font reader.

 A hard hearted Rosta.
 A full plate of pasta.
 Everybody knows
 you can never make a 
 girl like that
 happy.
 
 On a brighter day
 everybody goes
 to the high pier
 at the fifty mile beach
And I know
She doesn't look you in the eye
and when she she says bye-bye
she means
by
and by
and buy
uhn't ah
ya huh huh
till all the moneys gone and I knjow

You can't ever make a girl like her
happy
so why should you even try
because if she has you in your sights
she might just be wishing that you'd . . . 
die.

nuht uh
uh ha
nuht uh
uh ha

in the bigger world
everyone says
if you want two 
then why not just take two?
But if she's watching everything you do?
all the hopes that you pursue
and causeing harms that might acrue
if you dwell
in that hell

nuht uh
uh ha
uh ha 
uh ha ha ha ha haa

nuht uh
uh ha
uh ha
uh ha ha ha ha haa

Everybody says
you can't
ever make a girl like her
happy
It's a brighter day
and you're driving a way
she had nothing left to say

nuht uh
uh ha
uh ha
uh ha ha ha ha ha haaa

If you want to
then you don't you just do?

If you want two
why don't you just take two?

 This the part
 where she's breaking your heart.
 
 How can you stop
 when you don't ever start?

 
 I know
 the things you keep in side
 you've been shutting up your mind
 the one's you left behind.
 I heard
 the songs you sing when you are blue
 you make the words sappy gew
 like you don't know what to do.
 
 
 
 If you'd just
 write your songs
 to be for everyone.
 Stop 
 making villains
 of who you don't know.
 You see it all in the dark
 and you write and tune
 and then on a lark
 you put some crappy words
 that actually are absurd
 if you think of what you say
 when you're lonely to convey
 that I don't really know
 what you are rattling on.
 Can't you think
 of better words
 for your rage-head
 anthum song?

nothing
nothing
you don't know anything
I can't take you anywhere
you don't kjnow nothing
and I
don't know
why
with that look
in your eye
that you're starting 
to cry
your just a little
baby guy.

Nothing
nothing
don't you know anything?
I cna't take you anywhere
you don't know nothing.
And I don't know why
with that look in her eye
that I was starting to cry
but the video didn't lie.

I ain't never gonna be
anything more
than what I'll already become
and if you thinking what you hope for
what you left behind
no make up your mind
what did you really find?
Cause I don't know that it's dumb.

If you're thinking about it
and you're talking about it
you had the whole day long
to do something about it.
And I don't know why
you've been screaming and shouting
and I don't even know what you mean.

If you don't love me
then I could walk down along the sea
in the blizzard
with the wind and the flooding flow.
I'll walk off along the shore
you won't see me back here anymore
Getting on my boots and I'm going to go.

If you're thinking about it
and you're talking about it
you had the whole day long
to do something about it
and I don't know why
you've been screaming and shouting
and I don't even know what you mean.

If you don't love me
I could walk down along the sea
and you'd would see
that you don't really want me 
to go.
But you opened up that door
you said "Don't come around here no more!
Now off with you
into
the blizzards and hightide flow"

If you're thinking about it 
and you're talking about it
had the whole day long 
to do something about it
and I don't know why
you are screaming and shouting
and now you say I must go?

Ah
ha ha haaa
ha haa ha haa ha
haa 
ha ha ha
ha
ha ha ha ha
due do do doom doom doom
da de dippity doom
and the dunes
are flooded with
snow.

ah ha ha Haa
ha ha
ha ha
ha ha ha ha
have you told your lover to go?
And did he take you at your word
as rediculous and as absurd
and wonder off
into the blizzards of snow?



You look to me
like you've been trying too hard
like life's been dealing you a crooked card
Or you've been freaking out
locked out of your car
and then you wondered down the midnight highway really far.

And I don't know
which way
the wind will blow
I thought we'd worked out
yesterdasy
you look at me and have nothing to say.

You look to me like you've been running to fast
like life has bowled you over
and kncoked you on your ass
or you've gotten bloated and are all full of gas . . .
or worrying about a fantasy past.

I don't know
which way the wind will blow
I thought we'd worked it out yesterday.
You look at me and you've got nothing to say . . .
