Through the short days I have offered opinions
in comment sections so as to counter a criticism often leveled at me,
which is that I "don't play well with others." And I think the
word is 'moderation' from 'moderate' which means, 'being within
reasonable limits' or 'medium or average quality' or 'opposed to extreme
or radical views.' In another way and with respect to comment
sections, it is a sieve through which a remark needs to pass before
entering the arena of worthiness. And I can understand
completely why a 'moderator' is required because through the short days
I have spent a considerable number of hours reading comment sections.
And sometimes I have been persuaded to raise the question "who will
moderate the moderator" because a great majority of comments, it seems
to me, do little to assuage the view that our species is quite
determined to achieve a nirvana through some process of "mutual
strangulation" or "trampling each other to death at the Best Buy,"
rather than anything remotely to do with "fitness."
And here, I would like to discuss the phrase "Communism is
based on a lie." And I really would like to ask those
who assert this to explain with a degree of precision, why
it is they think this. Sadly I already know at least
parts of the answer to the question. It's not complicated or
long winded, it requires no 'F' word or 'C' word or 'L'
word. You don't have to reach for the rarely used
keys, you don't have to use 'caps lock,' unless you are
retarded and don't actually know why 'communism is based on
a lie.' But instead you heard the phrase somewhere,
liked it's sound, allowed it to permeate then fill the
empty spaces so that it might become a comforting utterance
in the same why I draw inspiration from the patty-cake
of "Your flag boy and my flag boy, sitting by the fire."
Anyway I think it enough to say that through the course of
the past couple of months I have been 'moderated' out of
good number of comment sections. I could try to think of it
as exile, but more likely it could very well be that I am
indeed an FCL.
