Notes on the end of the cycle 1: the fall armyworm
when you lock up so much delicious energy behind pesticides and herbicides and selective breeding and genetic engineering you taunt the entire earth to throw its worst at you, terrifying monsters from our darkest nightmares

the XR movement here is clearly riddled with cops but we suspect many fossil fuel and trans national companies are also sending in plants, suspicions were first aroused by a leaked email doing the rounds that show XR encourage the development of affiliate groups for landlords and police but have explicitly banned socialist affiliates because "we need the help of capital".

earnest nerds on twitter today are talking up how the violent altercation at the tube station shows the "subjective mode of commuter fascism" and when they start lapsing into that kind of gibberish it's their way of saying they've realised too late that their latest cause celebre is a hopelessly compromised op but they don't want anything to do with the great unwashed either. falling back on impenetrable academic jargon and high falutin theory is what the big brains of the UK left do in lieu of sucking their thumbs and snuggling with a blanky. they're really fucking bad at sniffing out cops and ops and they are really good at learning nothing when this stuff happens, so they become part of the op by dropping their hot takes online that disrupt organizing viable alternatives to booj movements like XR.

The Mayor: What is going on over there? Why aren't the cops out encouraging environmental destruction as we planned?
Chief of Police: Sir... the protesters have forced us into a dilemma situation.
Mayor: Jesus Christ.
Chief of Police: In all my years of using my badge to harm nature, I never planned on this.
Mayor: But can't you simply arrest them?
Chief of Police: You don't understand. If we arrest them, they've won. Eventually, we'll have arrested them all. And we'll be stuck.
Mayor: Game over.
Chief of Police: Exactly.

my bad, it wasn't a leaked email it was an official one lol. from the current affairs article:

Not long ago, a friend of mine affiliated with the London-based group Left Culture Club attempted to start an XR socialist subgroup and quickly incurred the ire of the central XR media team. In a phone call, he was told that such a move would contravene XR’s stated “beyond politics” stance but also make it more difficult to accomplish their strategic goals, which, the spokesperson argued, require the cooperation of big business. Yet in an official email encouraging people to join affinity groups, XR’s list of approved spin-offs included XR Police and XR Landlords.

after demonstrating my superior awareness of dialectical materialism, rooted in the material nature of the universe and allowing me to operate at a higher state of consciousness, the leader of the gang will be so overcome by their idealism that they'll rush me -- but this is sheer utopianism, as i will parry their blows at rapid speed like neo at the end of the matrix... quantitative changes becoming qualitative changes... before finally somersaulting into their body and shattering it into tiny pieces
