Have you ever heard of the Iconoclasts? When power is now threatened by simulation it risks the real crises But it is too late!! Disneyland, dude, fucking Disneyland. War comes not when it is made by sovereign against sovereign not when killing for attritive and strategic neutralisation purposes is authorised; nor even, properly spoken, when shots are fired ; rather, war comes when society is generally convinced that it is coming.

Baudrillard then talks about the power of precfssion and symbols to subvert reality. Historical revolution can suck a dick. Further, a real nuclear clash has never even been an issue, except maybe at the very beginning of the Cold War when people thought that nuclear battles would be fought like traditional battles. Or, is it the result of right-wing provocation? The purpose of a strike really has nothing to do with actual work in any capacity.

And this happens just as two giant satellites are fucking right above their heads. This is a total simulacrum, where the idea of it even referencing anything whatsoever is completely ridiculous.


Victory or defeat matter little at this point. Hyperreality — Map and Territory.

Because what are you gonna use to get to the real? When we talk about nuclear warfare, there is this terrible cliff-hanger at all times—who will nuke whom? Once your country has entered the Atomic Country Club, you no longer have to do anything violent anymore.

The same perfect model now governs social life as well. This simulation can go on and on forever because unlike real, tangible power like that possessed by King Arthur wait, was he a real king?

It seems like we actually know better than to try to use our stupid modern science to save the corpse, to give something visible to the world. It ends up being so big that it just covers the whole territory like a pelty moss of pubic hair. Fuck Guy Debord and the rest of his merry pranksters known as the situationists. Like a fucking funeral photo.

The creation of the simulacra of hyperreality is described by Baudrillard through three baudril,ard of simulacra manifested in four types of images.

What are we left with?

What is active or passive anymore? And we asked, over and over again, who was to blame—TV? Inethnology just about died. We live in a universe that always seems similar to some other reality that once existed before it.

Are you looking for them? Map—territory relatione. If baudrllard man pretends to be ill, he may sit in bed, but does not possess any symptoms of illness.


Wiretaps in the plants. What we think is real is made from tiny baby units, from code, ones and zeroes, databases and IT dorks. They realized that this meant one of two things: Like I said earlier, every fucking interpretation is kind of true in this world of simulation.

Every human goal, every distinction between good and evil, true and false, was destroyed so that money could eventually convince us of a universal law of value and exchange.

Oh, wook at dis witto Gweek bebe. Referring to “On Exactitude in Science”, he argued that just as for contemporary society the simulated copy had superseded the original object, so, too, precessiom map had come to precede the geographic territory c. More like Lady Debord. What is really fucking dumb is that I know for a fact that everyone literally suspects this, but nobody really accepts it. All fucking power is like this.
