On the Need for society and a Social Interest

The politics of humanity have always been about power. To disregard that fact is to disregard history. To eradicate power is to eradicate the need for a body politik.

This fact underpins social discourse and can not be expunged. An ideology based on reducing the importance of power will inherently reduce the importance of the society, leading to its own destruction.

What is needed is a framework to build on the empowerment of the self. To reestablish or foster belief in self-governance. To impress the importance of cooperation. To ingrain the need for a collective process.

What is needed is a collective interest in society. A social interest. An interest beyond the self that encompasses the totality of the human experience. That understands the intrinsic value of the social contract. That comprehends the permeation of a thousand separate actions that flow together to one goal of progress.

This social interest is a goal that must be seen to each and every day.

For to let it slide is to allow us to fall back into the problems that have plagued the prior century and continue to provide despair and destitution of our selves as well as social structure.

A social interest is understanding the inherent value of a social order, of the rule of law. Of a society that protects its vulnerable and fosters its strengths. A society that betters itself each and every day. That deals with its weaknesses and improves upon them.

Such a society can only be possible when the full weight of governance falls upon each individual citizen, Both the governance of the society and the governance of the self.

The only actions we can control are our own. It must be through a collective belief in the fundamental good of supporting one another that we move forward. Lest we isolate ourselves and plunge ever deeper into a disconnected society riddled with despair and intolerance.

"Weird Al" Yankovic - Dare to Be Stupid

Alfred “Weird Al” Yankovic first came to national attention after he handed Dr, Demento a tape of accordion songs he recorded in his bedroom when the famous DJ spoke at Al’s high school. Dr. Demento played the song “Belvedere Cruisin’” on his show, and the track was recieved well. Eventually, Yankovic recorded more songs which Demento also played on air, gaining him enough fame to get a record contract, and his eponymous debut album was released in 1983. Despite his reputation for writing silly parody songs, he has been noted, along with his band, for his ability to mimic almost any style of music and has won three Grammy Awards for his work.

Although he is mostly known for his parodies, he also writes many original songs, often in the style of certain musicians or genres. One such song is the title track to his 1985 album, Dare to Be Stupid, which is done in the style of Devo’s music. Mark Mothersbaugh himself loved the song and called it “more Devo than Devo”. The music video for the song parodies several Devo videos including the videos for “Jocko Homo”, “Beautiful World”, and “Whip It”. The song was also featured in The Transformers: The Movie as the theme for the Junkions.

Enjoy!

Note: despite the similar names, preference for the accordion, and the fact that they have performed together, he is not related to polka legend Frankie Yankovic.

102 chicken nuggets

why would you order 17 of 6 instead of 5 of 20… that shit’s expensive as hell

Getting 2 four pieces is cheaper then 1 6 piece know your nuggets

but getting 1 20 piece is cheaper than 3 6 pieces KNOW YOUR NUGGETS

this is how word problems for math books are started, isn’t it.
