PostSubject: First Meditation on Marx: Money   Tue Jun 11, 2013 11:21 am

Money is theft. Of what? By whom? In typical economist fashion, Marx likes to not acknowledge even its existence, it is simply a synonym for capital. This is a metaphysician's error, Value Ontology reveals that no thing is nothing. Money has self-valuing properties. Value Ontology is the elimination of the thing-in-itself via the most elegant strategy of absorbing the very last concecuences of the thing in itself without compromising Nietzschean honesty. Money is no thing in itself, rather it values itself.

More importantly, and my first step to establish that it is theft, it is valued by the self-valuings self-known as humans. How is it valued? That economists don't look at it means that it is valued as economy, as trade itself. It is the way a certain group of great thieves supplanted the very notion of rich, the truest value of ownership, by adding a middleman that is essencialy not enriching. Rather than valuing the trade directly, or through an anarchic element like gold or cacao seeds, these thieves of the notion of rich (who don't get to keep it for themselves either, nihilist thievery) separate men from the notion by forcing them, with military force regulated by written codes, to value money first, that-which-money-begets second. Or did Aztecs hoard cacao seeds!? Or is gold not valuable enough simply as gold to be hoarded?? Money has no value but the implicit threat of violence, which is the mark of thieving.

If we value the Money entity into Marx's economic analysis, made manyfold better by the great Guattari and Zizek, he was wise in seeing that richness is not only stolen in the terrrain of engineered goods, but even in that abstract level of thought known in some of its facets as intellectual property. Philosophy has remained above it only in the internet, the greatest open secret in humanity. Yet the thieves that created money begat the petty thieves that enforce it, and they are looking for us.

This is the importance of the politization of Marxist philosophy, that it is a defence against the worst kind of thievery: philosophical thievery. Here the true Marxist, as Zizek, must wage his war: not with bloody violence, but with philosophical violence.

I call on you, who see Marx, and would not stand by thievery; not out of ethics, but out of the pure will to be rich.

Exactly right. It is such a strong self-valuing that it manages to value humans in terms of itself with such violence that it draws humans to value themselves in terms of it.

Guattari reminds me of hot summer afternoons in Vienna, reading him while smoking a joint on the bed of my then-girl who was at work, marveling at my freedom. The point: I fail to be threatened by the truth. Life of the self-overcome, self-discovered, self-created philosopher is too rich to be drawn in by theft - what I create, they may thieve - but that only means they value themselves in my terms. My only response to being stolen from philosophically would be triumphant and mocking laughter. I will already be far ahead.

Words to my heart.

I applaud your self-initiation.
In the background of VO was always radiating the realization of the discovery of true, cosmic wealth.  Wealth that can not be stolen, that only increases by thieves laying their hands on it.

One good reason I use the North South distinction between us is the largeness of spirit that allows you to be the green/white power ranger, and the smallness of spirit that allows me to be the red one.

I am small, against immense nature. You are big, against manageable nature.

I always chose the red one as a kid, even though the green/white one was obviously cooler, had better taste and enjoyment of freedom. I tasted that when I lived in the parts where cold comes, it was delicious. I am glad it is there, I am glad you are master of it and are in my team. Your view feeds me, though I will abandon it for myself and instead lead the black, blue, yellow and pink ones with more intention: I care more about their fate, I feel more the nature of others pressed against mine.

You like me because I, abandoning your way, nonetheless seek one of great power. Some say all kings are slaves, and I say don Juan is far from a king.

I said to Capable once: I seek to build a world where ones like you will be a hundred-fold in proportion of humans. I don't need you to help me, though I would accept it with joy, you "inspire" me always in the words of lesser ones. My envy for a life such as yours, such as I have known, further fuels my will to power. Doesn't it thrill you to see a project like that unfold? It must, you are of good taste.

Green/white ranger, red ranger. Same team, more or less. The less is because of your aloofness, which I love.

And as your taste for wealth is, I know, real, you will be no obstacle to my will of destruction of money wealth, though you yourself don't seek it. Others like me will help, once they see. Or I will fail. Good stories in any case, and fun times. Your creative genious, unabated.

I am a genious because I overcame the Che, I am compatible with Q, I am only a threat to weakness. So is any that joins and helps me. Doesn't Zizek, after all, love Badieu most of all?

----------------------------------------------------------------

We most overcome money, those who would, and I cannot tell you how, though I will cooperate with you whenever and however. I am already starting the mise en place stage of my own anti-money concoctions, I am not exactly seeking adventure down here. Not exactly.
