In his main work The Principle of Hope (1954-9), the anti-Heideggerian author Ernst Bloch[7] has correlated the thrownness into the world with a dog's life: hope "will not tolerate a dog's life which feels itself only passively thrown into What Is, which is not seen through, even wretchedly recognized".[8] Such a connection had been picked up by The Doors in a verse of their song "Riders on the Storm" (1971): "Into this world we're thrown / Like a dog without a bone". Speaking with Krieger and Manzarek, the German philosopher Thomas Collmer [de] tells how this verse recalls Heidegger's concept of thrownness: in 1963 at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Jim Morrison attended a whole lecture in which philosophers who had examined the philosophical tradition, such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Martin Heidegger, were discussed.[9] In 2009, Simon Critchley dedicated his column on The Guardian to Heidegger's concept of thrownness and explained it using the aforementioned verse of The Doors.[6]

Alright, but if you don't get a fine (which I don't think even exists for copyright claims), you'd still have to travel to me but I get to slap you with something sturdier (I'm in a landlocked country, so not many dead fish in our dumpsters).

Here, check out this fair use guidelines. I'm not messing with you. If you are just using quotes, arranging them however it suits you, and adding commentary, you'll be fine.

But an alternative to what you call 'antinational anarchism' is anarchism. I don't know a single 'national liberation movement' that is actually anarchist. This is mostly a Marxist arena since the very idea of 'nation' (which really is just a bit more poetic way of saying the 'state') is antithetical to anarchism.

As for that Indonesia point, we are getting entangled in what was me just being surprised that very 'European' anti-semitic tropes travelled as far as Southeastern Asia. It also proves my point that you can't pin anti-semitism down on a specific country when it's a transnational phenomenon.

Besides bringing it up in relation to your idea of 'antigerman anarchism,' I also don't think there are that many Jews in Indonesia, which made me think how strange it is that an Indonesian collective would make such a blatantly antisemitic work. But now reading more about it, it looks like they are doing it to express their solidarity with the Palestinian people. Still, this was a terrible idea.

I'm again very happy to bet the little money I don't actually have on the fact that Gillis possibly found 3 out of 20+ people (maybe that guy with his two ladyfriends) who flippantly said 'yeah, let them all die' and made it into 1:1 ratio.

And yes, of course, anyone with at least a cursory knowledge of what eugenics is, and who identifies as 'transhumanist,' should know better than to utter something like 'green shit.' But here we are, eugenics is when you say civilisation is not really what it's made up to be, and not, say, when you send Jews into gas chambers, or sterilise Black women, or claim you can determine future criminals on the basis of their earlobe shape.

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.

Real talk tho, what's up with Gillis resenting other people having sex. Didn't he have similarly snide comments about Aragorn! getting around?
