2021-07-05 (4th of You Lie Edition)

What the fuck is up all you ultra-hyper patriotic girlies and guylies?! Em-to-the-muthafuckin’-o-to-the-muthafuckin’-clew to the 4th of You Lie Edition! All you veteran perverts out there ought to know generally what to expect from me as far as political music, especially about the 4th. I’ve been far from silent about it over the years (except for the few years when I went silent due to depression and abject apathy), so I’m fairly certain y’all know where I stand on this shit. Even as a kid, I thought (and still think) the red, white & blue color combination was generally ugly in any design I saw. I thought the flag looked dumb, and so to have a holiday celebrating with these colors and the flag, I figured there had to be something deeper to it. Boy-o, was I correct or what?

 

This is a nation of artifice. I see people clamor for freedom w/o even understanding true freedom; clamoring actually for the myriad conveniences that have made life damn near unbearable in their absence. Many people on the left and right are fucking addicted to convenience, to modern frivolity, and I’m no exception. The only difference with me is that I’m trying (in my own ways, at least) to remove the shackles from all of us so we can maybe see a semblance of true freedom at some point in our lives. Maybe even have something of a future? Crazy fuckin’ notion, I know. We’re never going to get there so long as these rich piles of human filth keep growing their wealth at all of our expense.

 

I feel fairly confident (even hopeful) that paths to true freedom are clearing up in the minds of many. I know it may seem odd to have any hope left after the past 5 years, and I certainly still struggle with depression, apathy, etc. I just know that as situations grow more dire on the planet, especially in this country, people will either unite behind the common cause of survival, or we’ll bicker ourselves into extinction. Either way, we’ll get what we deserve, in my opinion. I don’t wish suffering on anyone, least of all anyone close to me, but if billions of us can be so easily subjugated by a revoltingly wealthy few, I have to wonder if human beings really deserve survival. In life and death situations, we what, just willingly choose to piss away our precious existences because we don’t have any better ideas? Even when millions march simultaneously, we still don’t have enough people power to overturn the will of some greedy politicians?

 

You know what I think is most likely? As things grow more desperate, the respect for the rule of law will wane. Crimes of desperation and despair are nothing new, and I’d argue those are where most crimes originate. I would tell these greedy fucks that if they’re interested in remaining where they are, not to mention having something of a habitable planet for their children, they need to help us secure a future for all of humanity. I know I’m speaking more globally than nationally right now, and this is technically a 4th of July podcast, but American companies are some of the worst offenders as far as pollution and wealth disparity. Never even mind the laundry list of sins we’ve accumulated over the relatively brief period of 5 centuries. I genuinely hope this country collectively atones for and actively repairs the damage it’s done not only to its own population, but to countries all over the world. I imagine I’ll be holding my fuckin’ breath on that one ’til I asphyxiate, much like the belief in fairytales that I talked about in Sunset.

 

Speaking of which, yes, I did include the snippet of Sunset I put on my last 4th of July podcast back in 2016. If you don’t understand it, well, that’s fine. Even I probably don’t understand it all anymore. I just hope you enjoy it. Anyway, as far as the tracks, most everything is from previous editions. There’s one new track by a group called ZSK called Antifascista, and I probably ought to find more new political music. The truth of the matter is that I was going to make another Send Newds edition, but I stopped in the middle of compiling ‘cause I wanted to do this edition instead. That change of mind left me with little-to-no time to properly put together an entirely new playlist, especially since I had other household stuff to take care of. That said, I’ll probably just do the next Send Newds next week, so keep your eyes peeled and ears open for that one.

 

I don’t think I need to bother saying much about the tracks this week. I would say most of the big names ought to spark enough interest to hit that play button and give the rest of the stuff a whirl. It’s funny too ‘cause as I’m sitting here writing this script, I keep thinking of new shit to add to it, so I should probably wrap this fucker up already. Remember, two of the best things you can be in this country (anywhere in the world, actually) are vigilant and educated. So, if/when the typical revelry of the 4th starts failing to elicit the same wildly and blindly enthusiastic patriotism in you, maybe poke your head out of the sand for a bit, extract the enormous red, white & blue dick from your ass, and see what you can do about changing some shit for the better around here.
