Someday Fadsmashers will be forced to self-destruct. It will have become nothing more then an exhausted played out fad. It will breed a culture which will evolve through various fashionable phases, to the point in which it relies solely on rerun themes and predictable humor that fits within the guidelines of its traditions it will have accumulated. Tragically, what will come to mark its success, will be its own downfall. As such it will become obsolete in its entertainment value and useless as an activist tool. Anything fluid will eventually be solidified by the ‘machine’, and fadsmashers awareness of this principle does not make it immune. On a more optimistic note we are still in our Zygotic phase, and are hoping to stave off this inevitable downturn as long as possible! As refined as we would like to think our general outlook on life is here at Fadsmashers (something we humbly and at the same time boisterously 'concede') we (meaning me who I address in third person plural for dramas sake) realize that it is but another in a string of over-the-counter perspectives that has attempted to understand and explain how the world works, born out of a consumer market for truth, and thus is itself equally liable to be corrupted by the market forces it criticizes. The best we can do is keep listening to good fucking music and staying true to the eternal fadsmashers tenet of human social behavior that: if something is allowed to be popular, it is likely not true.
Thus, the following is an overview of the diverse array groups and their perspectives that one will encounter on their way journey in what is commonly and mistakenly referred to as "seeking truth", (i.e. not craft an image for themselves, or an attempt to fit in to a group, not a quest to possess exclusive knowledge, or to aspire to be morally or intellectually superior) rather an actual attempt at understanding all or any part of the secretive agenda being pushed forth by those who quite simply created the fake economy. Seeking to know ‘the truth’ in this sense is basically seeking to know how society works, it is not concerned with the superior question of the meaning of life (real Truth). But, this is not to discourage one in their quest of factoring out the earthly matrix of corruption, but this should not be confused with a quest for 'T'ruth, something that arguably isn’t contingent on the activities of a few monkeys on a spinning alienated rock. Finding Truth with a capital T requires we go beyond our fixation with the moral deviations of a corrupted world, it should not be confused with understanding how the world works. So in the meantime we can benefit by organizing these various understandings of how the world works into one long winded sarcastically illuminated spectrum called the propaganda gradient. I have organized what I will call 'media subcultures ' ranging from the most simplistic to the most dynamic in terms of its fundamental beliefs about the world. This is not to say that truth is dynamic and complex, but to show how these belief systems compound on one another, and how messy the whole situation has become. We will proceed from the lowest of the low, the "Fox news viewer" or what I like to call "complete and utter fucking morons", progressing up to those who have more critical and refined views, and ultimately come full circle back to a position of social immobility as expressed in the philosophy of nihilism. The essential thesis here is that one form of propaganda is not enough to suppress the interests of a post-modern/ information age population, a multi-leveled propaganda effort is necessary to suppress the hi-tech and eccentric demands of the consumer population. In our current capitalist/ free-market system consumer demand is met with supply, no matter what the commodity/ information required, if you want it and it’s plausible, someone will make it and sell it to you. Not only is their special interests at work who dictate what information we receive, but it is facilitated by a flawed economic system that seeks to exploit progressive endeavors at every end. This is why its so imperative that when aligning ourselves with a cause we familiarize ourselves with its implications, that we analyze it from all levels to ensure that our good will is not exploited. Many of these theories of worldly corruption will attempt to tie themselves to the big Truth (i.e. elites possess esoteric knowledge of the universe that they are not disclosing... type thing), for these theories their movement truly has become a religion of sorts, thus many of my classifications for groups will have subgroups comprised of a pragmatic and idealistic versions , the latter being a little more... out there. It should be obvious that this is entirely laced with my own bias, and will likely insult many. Enjoy!
Everyone with an interest in their Orwellian world will have that interest catered too, and should they happen to actually discover 'truth' they likely won’t live long enough to take it to the bank.
1). Complete and Utter Fucking Morons/ Primary/ Direct/ simplistic propaganda
I am not a biological determinist, but it may be the case that inbreeding has 'corrupted this groups capacity to make informed decisions (or to even have 'a' thought) this is not to say I desire a eugenics program to thin them from the population, nor is it an attack on those who are spiritually bound in organized religion; its just a fact, these people are typically dirt fkn dumb, and therefore act as a focal point for many of my cathartic discharges, and keep alot of other critics employed too. I have met many religious people who are more socially and politically enlightened but not the people in this group. The sad thing is that alot of these people (as with all groups) think they are morally superior; they actually believe the shit that they say. Anyone who watches Fox News in order to be informed and not to be entertained is likely to be the first person who shouts you down in your quest for truth, their criticisms will be ridden with propaganda clichés such as God hates you for not supporting war, that to think clearly is anti-American etc. These people in short are complete and utter fking morons, who outside of being appreciated for their sentience, should have their opinions completely ignored, namely because they are not their own, they are programmed thinking animals, their opinion is complete shit, there is no simpler way to put it. The blindly believe any and everything they are told from the most degenerate media they can find, outside of emitting carbon these people are completely useless to mankind, they are defenders of the past. This group is also the ones most commonly referenced as sheep by all other groups; essentially this is the thick of the flock.
a) Some of these individuals exercise a simplistic moronic view, i.e. that people hate them for their freedoms. Little depth, no real insight, completely one sided and biased.
b) Others exhibit a more dynamic attitude and graduate from the Bill O’Reilly perspective to one of Rush Limbaugh, who purport a vast left wing/ communist conspiracy to take over the world… A bit more depth, some insight, still completely one sided and biased.
Nemesis: Anyone who doesn't take the bible literally but namely moral morons (discussed next). Also likes prodding 'twoofers' (group 4).
Political disposition: Right wing/ conservative
Characteristics: Jocks, religious fundamentalists, bigots, oblivious fascists
Exploited emotion: Fear/ Anger
Exploited by: Republicans, capitalists, war profiteers, Religion etc.
Media Source: FOX news, CNN, The Jerusalem Post
Whose to blame: Muslims, brown people and anyone who doesn't claim to love Jesus. Their is no disdain for the system, only the 'others'.
2). Moral Morons/ 1st level secondary/ indirect/ complex propaganda
These people see through the deception of conservative media, and drop anchor in the self-proclaimed leftist media zones, or what are referred as leftist or liberal forms of media when contrasted with the shit stream of information spewed by their conservative counterparts. O'Reilly Vs Olberman is about as deep as this rabbit hole is going to go. They will battle with one another about token left Vs. Right issues but seldom mediate anything of real value. If alarm bells didn’t start ringing when ‘right wing media’ labeled this form of media ‘liberal’ it’s likely you are at this phase. People who get caught in this net are usually more moral people who are not so easily convinced by religious delusions and patriotism. In fact they are mostly democrats, are better educated (As it is fact that democrats have higher IQs), and like to think that they are informed. However, their liberalism is fashionable, they are the kind of people who will critique fox news coverage of Gaza events but not NBC, because they cannot see the deeper deception involved with NBC news, or BBC or any supposed liberal news agency. Maybe they will shop green not because of the impact they will have but because it is the in thing to do. They will revere token liberal personalities like Keith Olberman, and they just love to think that George Bush is the root of the world’s problems, and that if he died all corruption would cease. In addition they are currently the bulk of the American population and comprise most of Obama’s voting base, they merely align themselves with what appears to be more socially acceptable or morally developed but safe. They are the cool kids in school who weren't jocks. They are morons because although they want to end world hunger, and want world peace, their understanding doesn’t go beyond the Wall st Vs. Main street debate, they simply have conceded upon the lesser of two polluting mainstreams of information. As such their opinions they fashion around the information they collect from this 1st line propaganda should be regarded for what it is. Complete shit that is devoid of any depth or holistic understanding of what is actually occurring.
Nemesis: Complete and Utter Fkn morons, and ironically also anyone who thinks 9/11 was a complete scam (it is these people who are the 'debunkers'.
Political disposition: Left wing/ liberal/ secularist
Characteristics: Less orthodox in their religion, semi-cultured
Exploited emotion: Sadness, empathy
Exploited by: Democrats, capitalists (covertly)
Media Source: Any token liberal media, CBS, ABC, BBC, CBC, NBC
Whose to blame: Bill O'Reilly (people and the system)
3) The Romantics/ 2nd level propaganda
-These are more radical leftist people who are perhaps even militant in their defence of which ever party is said to represent the leftist (socialist/ progressive) line of thinking. They are passionate people you will find on picket lines and exotic coffee shops everywhere, but when it comes to their comprehension of the big picture, they live in a world in which they actually believe and/ or hope that government will develop a sense of virtue as evidenced in their countless attempts to choke out corporate weeds with grassroots activism. They shake their fists at corporate logos, they are rebelling but do not know really know why. They may throw up banners that say free Palestine (most likely ones which say "form a pali/ Israeli joint state") but they have no understanding nor concern for the secretive forces who exploit these enmities, their attention is focused on their elementary understanding of "the machine" they rage against this "machine" because they have been conditioned with the Ghandi myth that they should not rage against people; that the state of the world involves a blame shared by us all equally, they actually believe that peaceful protest allowed India to be freed from Britain (this isn't true as many post colonial linkages remained), they have been conditioned to think that anything in excess of this constitutes violence or terrorism and they are scared to death of ever having to partake in a real revolution which would require them to fight. I am not necessarily condoning such a thing, an unorganized resistance would likely amount to a system that is worse. In many respects these people are very practical; they keep their protests around issues that, regardless of their sub-level importance, allow for achievable goals and outcomes. Another thing about these people is that they usually believe the official 9/11 story sold by the mainstream media, even though they primarily don’t rely on mainstream media, usually leftist indy sites, grass roots activism etc. They are still hardwired into the left/right paradigm; they are the more radical Obamians that one may have found themselves paling around with from time to time. Essentially these people are the first to intensify the Hegelian dialectic, and its not inclusive to all who hold picket signs, many as we will see have a more developed socio-political outlook. People in this group have medium depth to their views, they watch shows like democracy now, and read Naomi Klein and Noam Chomsky, they also probably listen to a lot of kick ass music while shaking their fist at the Neo-cons. But do they really know? Hell no.
Nemesis: The proverbial 'man'/ corporations, and anyone who drives an SUV.
Political disposition: Extreme left/ socialist/ Marxist/ Liberal Feminist/ environmentalist/ Takes the 'Zeitgeist' perspective that injustice is caused by flaws in the system and not humans that occupy roles within it.
Exploited emotion: Euphoria, happiness
Exploited by: Watered down versions of ancient eastern wisdom's like yoga and Feng Shui. Taken in by eco-capitalist green initiatives, and all of the token hippy subcultural elements.
Characteristics: Marijuana! Transcendentalist, humanist, whimsical
Media source: Democracy now, may listen to Coast to Coast with Art Bell
Whose to blame: The corporations (the system)
4) The Twoofer
I hate to use this derogatory term which was designed by ‘moral morons’ (shills) to stifle this groups attempt to get to the root of global corruption, but in many instances... they deserve it. These people self-proclaim as 'truthers', add a little Elmer Fudd and someone who needs a cheap ad hominem attack to support their flawed understandings of 9/11 and they will morph this into the term 'twoofer'. The name emerged in a facebook group called 9/11 conspiracy morons, a group run by a bunch of athiest assholes who are dumb enough to blindly defend to the death of themselves the official narrative of 9/11. Fuck these people and their cries for attention. But in addition, fuck alot of these twoofers too! These people can come from anywhere along the political spectrum but will likely have been previously indoctrinated with some conservative values, hence one of the primary motivations for understanding here is self-preservation. They are survivalists. Some may go as far as using instances of global injustice towards their own political ends. For instance, for the sake of their own self-preservation, they may align themselves with pro-Palestine causes or the like, in order to bolster support for their own political agenda (one in which most twoofers are unaware of). They are a progressive anomaly of sorts in that they seek to preserve their liberty by fighting corrupt forces, but to a point that is borderline selfish, almost as if they are dictators in waiting... They typically immediately stop at the first explanation of global corruption they are sold (i.e. that the world is run by a group of tight knit elites who partake in cult rituals and want to destroy us all to fulfill and live out their satanic fantasies yattayattayatta). Thus most of these people are powered by religious motives as well, but unlike the Fox News viewers (a group they argue with alot) they are slightly more enlightened in that they see the negative aspects of the inevitable one world government, and use it to validate their religion, talking about things like the mark of the beast and microchipping, population control and being whats called 'pro-life', being anti-immigrant and nationalist etc. They tend to call everyone else sheep, and in some respects they are correct, but they have merely stopped at the next plateau towards the peak of knowledge, with which many uncritically accepted as easily as they at one time accepted moronic propaganda… Twoofers will usually believe anything that isn’t mainstream, from alien conspiracy theories to sterilizing flu shots they believe it all. Underlying all of it is the notion that any world government is bad. Period. These people are in it for the fear factor, the adrenaline rush involved in ruminating about our imminent destruction. The self fulfilling aspect of this scenario is something they will at some point be forced to reconcile, that is, their beliefs are challenged by the mainstream, they have a vested interest in the corruption occurring so not to come off as a quack! But don’t stop for these hysterical yaks on your journey, there are still more developed bullshit perspectives to explore. There are two distinct kinds of twoofer:
Pragmatic- Believes that the world is run by a group of elites who want a one world government. They lean towards the alarmist fearmongering of one Alex Jones for insights about this conspiracy. They believe that their counterparts (Idealists as explained below) are a part of the conspiracy, alike anyone else who disagrees with them.
Idealistic- Believes that the world is run by X, who wants a one world government. (Substitute X with aliens, reptilians, cyborgs or anything you choose, so long as it isn’t plain old humans who want money and power, that doesn’t cut it; because the thing is these people are attempting to knit the grand truth with regards to the meaning of life as we know it, with these worldly issues)
* Both of these sub-groups claim that the other is disinformation.
Nemesis: The first three groups (Mainstream media, anything within left-right paradigm), but namely the "globalists" (communists and fascists)
Characteristics: Indignant, paranoid, excitable
Exploited emotion: Fear, hysteria, excitement
Exploited by: Survival capitalists, political campaigns (i.e. Ron Paul), the establishment as they are scared into submission.
Political Disposition: Mostly anti political spectrum/ libertarian
Media Source: (progressing in absurdity) Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, David Icke, Tsarion.
Whose to blame: People in power (not the system)
*Note: Fadsmashers offers no comment on the issue of sterilizing flu shots!
5) The enlightened twoofer
Although less hysterical in their attitude towards corruption they still challenge the system and its corrupt proponents but from a more enlightened perspective, one that namely; isn’t selfish. If one were to place these people on Kohlberg’s scale of moral development they would score very high in empathy. They realize that one world government isn’t necessarily a bad thing if the best interests of humanity are kept in mind, and are far more optimistic then their twoofer counterpart who get their kicks off of talking about how big, their big brother really is. Essentially they are more idealistic then their survivalist twoofer counterparts, They may advocate ideas such as the resource based economy paradigm as explained in the documentary Zeitgeist. As the name explains, this group leans toward the idea that our conditioning (the system) is more to blame then the people functioning within it. A defining factor of this group is a shared repulsion towards organized religion. Another primary difference between them and sub-level twoofers is that these people think that communism (or a system which resembles it that is free from religion and money) is not only ideal, but achievable, whereas twoofers are primarily defenders of the free market, only asking that there is gold to back up the corruption... Its important to note that these peoples pursuit of truth differs from the twoofer in that spirituality is a motive for their movement.
Nemesis: Religion, the first 3 groups, and to a lesser extent group 4, with which it shares beliefs with regards to what the problem is but differs in terms of solutions.
Political Disposition: Communism in an idealistic sense (i.e. not Maoist, or Stalin). Anarchism.
Characteristics: A blend of both sacred and mundane truth seeking behavior, eccentric.
Exploited emotions: Euphoria, love.
Exploited by: Potentially can be exploited by a corrupted communism and or political campaigns, although it also lends its support to libertarianism.
Media Source/ Example: Zeitgeist
Whose to blame: Everyone (the system)
6) The 'Groups 1-5 are shills (people who are being used) anti-Zionist/ Anti-Jew
Apart from being a refined in its view that revolutions are not televised, that things and people like Ron Paul and Alex Jones are if not willingly part of the deception, just another oblivious gear in the system, this perspective has shortcomings of its own. For one it uses the term Zionist in the sense that it is really referring to a Jewish gang of sorts that rules the world, although it doesn’t say this. This viewpoint has the side effect of causing pro-Jewish/ pro-Zionist organizations more leverage in their points of strength within the system. This group mainly receives criticism from people claiming it is being anti-Semitic (a flawed criticism but in some senses accurate). This too is yet another level of the deception, they want people to think that if the Jews were 'regulated' then our society would mirror perfection, that anywhere their is a problem in society, there is some group (defined by culture, religion) that is responsible. This group suffers criticism mainly from the "second level fucking morons" who in an attempt to display their humanity blindly defend anything Jewish people do using their karma earned from the "holocaust". In the end those at this level have their ideas exploited. Primarily they invite all sorts of criticism, and are easily labeled as terrorists. Their hatred for Jewish people is harnessed to enhance the global panopticon and used as the premise for implementing unnecessary standards of domestic security in any country allied with Isis-Ra-El. They make valid criticisms including some of their attempts at disclosing the details surrounding the holocaust, and their facts regarding which group has an insanely disproportion of wealth and power in the world etc. The problem is a stereotypical one, the intellectuals of this vein suffer from doings of the more reactive indignant ones who blacken their movement. Idiots who paint swastikas on their head and practice overt racial hatred, really dont do much for this group which is comprised of alot of people who have reasonable questions. Osama Bin Laden in addition to Adolf Hitler have done a lot to tarnish the credibility of this group! The most defining characteristic of this group is that they refute notions of 'the machine', they believe that the machine does not exist, and that it is only a select 'breed' (or creed) of people who are the scorn of the world. In fact anyone who tells you there is a 'machine' is said to be a shill (someone who is working for them). Just because these people are number 5 doesnt mean it is necessarily a 'better' perspective, its just that within its own world paradigm 1-4 would all be enemies.
Nemesis: Anything Jewish (Mainly anything from some extremists perspective)
Political Disposition: Thinks politics is largely a Jewish contrivance; a distraction but has some similarities with libertarianism.
Characteristics: So marginalized that they can become very defensive, even moreso then the twoofers. Typically marginalized for being anti-Semitic, although this vague and inaccurate term doesn't do justice to the complexity of their miguidedness. In reality they are a gang who is after a gang...
Exploited emotions: Jealousy, resentment, anger
Exploited by: Potentially exploited by the same pro Israeli-fascists who emerged out of Nazi Germany, and also used as an excuse by the establishment to warrant censorship. In addition they hatred of Israel (which stems from their hatred of Jews) is used by AL CIAdas terrorists as an excuse for the crimes they commit.
Media Source: Eric Hufschmidt, Prothink
Whose to blame: Take a wild guess! (hint: people)
7) The anti-political/ religious Zionist
This person is beyond noting that a significant portion of the world’s wealth resides in Jewish hands and or Jewish endorsing hands criticizes the political/ economic Zionist element. It seeks accountability and responsibility with power that is earned via global capitalism, and the spoils of private banking... However it also realizes how hatred toward any group is exploited and used against the person, and that the circle of friends extends well beyond Jews, it encompasses all appendages of the oppressive social apparatus from police to politicians. it doesn’t deal with the Talmud, or challenge the religious beliefs nor culture of the Jews themselves. Rather, it uses Zionist as a blanket term to describe those who support Israel no matter what creed or ethnicity they are apart of, as it is taken that those who support Israel indirectly support the oppressive global military industrial complex. Thus people at this level are against political Zionism, but not Jews because they realize that any generalization or stereotype will be collaterally damaging and simply make matters worse, thereby playing into the 'gangs' plan for worldwide hysteria and a super charged Zio-facist one world dictatorship (involving lots of coca-cola, expensive gas and overpriced meds!).
Nemesis: Zionism and its supporters, may be anti anglo-zionist, christian zionist etc.
Characteristics: Rationalists, empiricists, positivist, more appropriatley termed "my-onist".
Exploited emotions: Empathy
Exploited by: Potentially exploited by anti-Jew movement, and anything surrounding the Zionism Vs. World distraction.
Political Disposition: Thinks politics is largely a Anglo-Zionist contrivance; a distraction and has equal empathy towards the lessertards in society as they do hostility for those at the top. Thinks religion is a oppressive social institution no matter if its judaism, christianity, islam, should be limited in its influence on government affairs both domestic and (now) global.
Media source: Fadsmashers, The Fkn News
Whose to blame: The people and the system
8) The "it’s all a bullshit liability/ cynically optimistic/ but I still am compelled to care" perspective
This person is well aware of the mass corruption that has become embedded in human social behavior, although they (being true skeptics) don’t settle for anyone else’s answers. These are ultra-skeptical people who still may have some leanings toward number 7, but realize how all dialectics exhaust people’s energy and can be exploited too. It is a point of confusion in which if one were to progress forward they would likely be shot.
Nemesis: Anything that is a part of popular culture or a developed sub culture.
Political position: Fuck politics
Characteristics: Eccentric, cultured, rationally minded.
Exploited emotions: Happiness (laughter)
Exploited by: Nathan Human

Whose to blame: People and the system
9) The Philosopher
This person knows all media is bullshit, but doesn’t care, as they realize their probable insignificance in the grand scheme of things and don’t take this life’s material realities and injustices too seriously. Sure there may be global corruption occurring but what significance does this have on the universe… time and space?
Nemesis: People with beliefs about anything they purport as being factual.
Political disposition: Undecided, agnostic.
Media Source: Socrates
Exploited by: The thieves stealing your money in the real world!
Exploited emotions: hopelessness
Whose to blame: Anything and everything is a consequence of what happened before... maybe.
10) The Nihilist
Last but not least are people who don’t even care to watch the news, they are not even necessarily dumb, they just simply do not care in anyway whatsoever, they are completely apathetic.
Nemesis: No one in particular.
Characteristics: Nothing worth noting.
Exploited emotion: Apathy
Exploited by: N/A
Political disposition: WTF is politics?
Media Source: Anything but news.
Whose to blame: What was the problem?
One thing is clear, there are alot of people in this world living off the backs of others, so don't be afraid to get your feet wet in some new perspectives, but remember if you buy the ticket... get ready for the ride!
