  Slipping the pulleys

Generally speaking, local and state governments are not quite as far gone as the "Federal" "government". Most of what they do is necessary and sensible. So when I saw this in yesterday's headlines, I was initially reassured:
Some criminals are so habitual that Spokane County judges recognize them when they first appear in court after their arrest. In an effort to stop the spinning of what some say is a revolving door at the Spokane County Jail, the Spokane Police Department has launched a “chronic offender unit.” The new unit targeted the top 20 residential burglars – those with multiple charges....
.....Good! About fucking time. Break through the legal logjam and get these dudes into jail for life on a Habitual Offender sentence. The laws are already there, and the laws do get used sometimes; they need to be used more often. When you look at the arrest records for nearly everyone who gets arrested for a real crime, you see a life totally and ascetically devoted to crime. As with any other definite talent (pianist, mathematician, athlete, teacher, etc) you find the first evidence of criminal talent at age 9, and every year after that is spent in the 'revolving door'. In juvie for a month, out for a few days, in again for two months, out for a day, in for a year, out for a day .... and so on until the latest offense, which was committed one day after the latest release from custody. It's an absolutely predictable story. The delays involved in court procedures are the only reason these folks ever spend more than a day out of the walls. By all means let's target them....
..... for intensive tracking and services designed to help them break their addictions and find housing and jobs.
AAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!


Does the idiot police spokesman recognize how atrociously useless and counterproductive this project is? Does he know what a fucking CRIMINAL is?
Spokane’s new unit was greeted with suspicion; many offenders worried that police were just trying to pin more crimes on them, Meidl said. “The way we’re working with offenders isn’t anything like what they’ve seen from law enforcement before,” she said. But on the whole, the chronic offender unit has been well-received, Meidl said.
THE ONLY FUCKING CONCERN IS WHETHER THE FUCKING OFFENDERS appreciate the idea!!!!!!!!!!!! Logic and sense and facts? Never heard of those things. Criminal personality? No such thing. These fragile little dear little wilting violets need to be persuaded ever so carefully that KEEPING THEM OUT OF JAIL is a good thing.

Lesus save us. Mohammed save us. Buddha save us.

No. Pointless. Those gods don't exist. Only Satan exists, and he is roaring ahead with accelerated acceleration.

All the mechanisms of "government" and business and culture and media at all levels are mechanically working together to SMASH every aspect of civilization. There are no feedback mechanisms, no control dials.



The only thing we can do is minimize the contact, try to decouple ourselves as much as possible. Slip the pulleys, break the static friction, as Danbo is trying to do here. Avoid TV, avoid** obvious Agents Provocateurs, stay sane, maintain humor. Withdraw consent. Take a hint from the unfortunate citizens of places like Czechoslovakia and Poland in the 1950s.


= = = = =

**Expanding a bit: In the cultural and political realm, many partisan 'teams' and 'support groups' and 'movements' have been infested by APs, or are entirely APs. Their job is to steer you into viewpoints that serve the purposes of the authorities. In some cases it's an outright criminal Sting; in others it's just making you a convenient scapegoat for propaganda and arrest. This probably doesn't apply to support groups for genuine medical conditions, but it applies to everything else. Recent advice from a Calif mayor is perfect. Grow a pair. Don't let a bully flatten you, and don't let a support group pick you up. Frustrate the bullies, frustrate the APs. Withdraw your consent.

Location: Spokane

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
