asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what next, mujahedeen in afghan were not amerimuppets ?
mircea_popescu: exactly.
mircea_popescu: the fallacy here is that you wish to attribute action to "ownership" because this is a fundamental pillar of your otherwise broken "action is not the measure of phenomena". if only it were possible that the mujahedeen were "a puppet" then so many things you wish to be true would also perhaps be attainable.
asciilifeform: muppet
mircea_popescu: nevertheless, in afghanistan the only NOT puppets were the afghanis.
asciilifeform: not puppet
asciilifeform: important diff
mircea_popescu: ru and su were the actual puppets in this discussion.
mircea_popescu: and im not sure what the diff between m and p is here.
asciilifeform: muppet can put on a good show of, e.g., biting the puppetteer
mircea_popescu: but, to be perfectly clear, the man who goes to work hard so he can buy a diamond ring so he can "muppet" a woman into staying put for sex is not some sort of mastermind.
mircea_popescu: he's some sort of muppet.
asciilifeform: this - yes
mircea_popescu: this is the relationship of actual active tribes with soi-dissant empires.
mircea_popescu: the empire goes to get them diamond rings.
mircea_popescu: and i would know, because this is what romania's been doing for about a millenium.
mircea_popescu: course, not the same as greece's two, but nevertheless.
asciilifeform: let's say usg had not supplied the goat fuckers with modern rockets, infinite ammo, food, etc. then what, precisely, would've distinguished them from the red indians ?
asciilifeform: (who were also quite the set of 'active tribes')
asciilifeform: or zulu, et al
mircea_popescu: that red indians wanted to sit around and smoke peace pipe, whereby these guys wanted to rape your wife.
mircea_popescu: heck, zulu are raping your wife as we speak.
asciilifeform: iirc the peace pipe folks went to meet quetzalcoatl first. followed by the rape-the-wife ones.
mircea_popescu: sure, back then white didn't yet mean castrated.
mircea_popescu: or to bring the captive mouse back into all of this, whether it succeeds or not at chewing its way through plain steel and glass, and whether it has any chance at succeeding or not aren't considerations. it simply lacks any capacity of being my puppet, and for this reason it can't be, and that's that.
mircea_popescu: it's, as the polite expression goes, "uncivilised".
mircea_popescu: or rather, undomesticated.
asciilifeform: brick is even better 'undomesticated', then! as there have been trained mice, but never brick.

mircea_popescu: what else is the job of human industry since forever, but to separate the wires.
mircea_popescu: and so... we industriously retrain their youth. it's slow and unrewarding, but then again what else is the human condition, idem since forever.
mircea_popescu: note how this also happens to be exactly the male expectations of females, generally. "she should be pliable to no one but me", which then gets repackaged in weird things like madonna/whore compelx by sick societies, which is how "slut" works : to indicate that she's exactly the antiwoman (ie, pliable to all but me) and so on and so forth.
mircea_popescu: this is why dudes hang out with bitches (hey, she might not be pliable to me, but she sure as fuck ain't pliable to anyone else - so that's 50%. spreading, works.)
asciilifeform: everybody wants an everything 'pliable to no one but me.' 'i want a meat edible to me but not flies.' 'grain for me but not mice.' 'unix box for me but not usg.' etc
asciilifeform: that's pretty much what being alive means
mircea_popescu: this is why anal sex being painful to teh woman is actually THE REASON it's practiced and so on
asciilifeform: (e.g., why does cell have membrane? 'for meeeee!!!11')
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform quite exactly.
mircea_popescu: fractal reality, it really doesn't have that many tropes.
