"Operation Mindf*ck"

Operation Mindfuck is one of the most prominent features of Discordianism; it is the systemized abuse of fellow men and women hidden under the guise of "expanding minds". If your son or daughter is caught doing something WRONG, and then tries to weasle out of facing the consequences under the pretense of promoting Operation Mindfuck, do NOT, under any circumstance, think that this is "simply" teenage rebellion. This is the first sign of serious anti-social behavior.

This is how Wikipedia defines Operation Mindfuck: "O.M. is most often manifested as a decentralized campaign of civil disobedience, activism, art movements (especially performance art and guerilla art), culture jamming, graffiti and other vandalism, practical jokes, hoaxes, reality hacking, chaos magic, trolling and anything else that is believed to bring about social change through disrupting paradigms and thus forcing the victim to question the parameters of one's reality tunnel, the end result intending to be a society in which the creative aspects of both order and chaos are embraced."

Let's look again at just some of the ideas listed above:

-civil disobedience

-activism

-graffiti

-vandalism

-hoaxes

-chaos magic

-trolling

Isn't that a "heart-warming" list of extra-curricular activities any kid would want to be involved in? I think not. The very fact that Discordianism encourages these behaviors should be the only proof anyone needs to see what a truly nauseating and smarmy concept Discordianism truly is. Kids and Teens and Tweens are naturally inclined to act out now and then, it is -after all- how one tests the limits of what society will endure, and what it will not . . . Discordianism noticed this and decided to pounce on natural ideas to pervert and corrupt the youth, so that they can mould them into the extremists and terrorists they desire for their army.

If you don't think manipulation is involved with these fiends, let me draw your attention more closely to the last sentence of that Wiki definition: "believed to bring about social change through DISRUPTING paradigms and thus FORCING the victim to question the parameters of ONE's REALITY TUNNEL, the end result intending to be a SOCIETY in which the creative aspects of both order and CHAOS are EMBRACED." [emphasis mine]

Forcing the victim to question the parameters of one's "reality tunnel"? Interesting concept. FORCING. Consider that term. Have the Discordians ever considered changing their own "reality tunnels"? I guess that concept never occurred to them. How could it? Their idea is perfect.

And, do NOT, under any circumstance fail to notice their intention of forcing society to conform to their viewpoints. This is paramount folks.

Once again, another thought provoking response on the evils of discordianism.

Down with discordianism! Down with Eris! Fuck operation mindfuck!

One question you seem to consistantly leave out of your blog: Is Eris hot!? I can think of nothing more worth asking.

You are so correct, Central Scrutinizer, when you say that people should NOT be forced to question their own irrational assumptions. It is JUST PLAIN WRONG to make people question things and think for themselves. People ought to behave like brainwashed sheep, believe what they are told to believe, and do whatever they are told to do. Anything other than that would negatively impact the Republican Party's chances in the next election.

You are finally starting to get it, perhaps there is hope for you after all. Think about this: when you are in a lifeboat floating in the middle of the ocean, which is the better idea: To sit still and hope for the best, or To stand up and start rocking the boat?

It Depends, Central Scrutinizer. Are you in the boat with me, if so, I'd say rock the boat...

Nightmare said...

Heh. Central Sheepanizer :P

who's on a fucking lifeboat? we have a SURPLUS ECONOMY. You can live your life like you're stuck on a lifeboat, but I'd like to let people realize that they are already on shore.

I actually wrote that Wikipedia article when I was like....15

Needless to say I have since renounced Discordianism as the evil, Satanic it is. Thank you Concordia Movement!
