So, he was basically already doing the "anti-PC is the new counter culture" thing decades ago?

counter culture was always anti-pc, it's just that what is or isn't pc changes with time

>>90073164
no
counter is simply counter
anti-pc is just a hoax you were sold so racists could keep being racist
pc is a language for institutional press releases and has nothing to do with anything else

He was anti-everything. The man was a legitimately a completely sociopathic nihilist. Just read some interviews with him, he literally could not help but take the piss out of everyone around him, no matter what. I kind of like him for that, he was a very damaged dude but i wonder if he saw that the only honest way to exist in an insane and absurd universe was by being an insane and absurd person. It never had anything to do with "PC" or "anti-PC," he was one of the most deranged people to ever gain a public platform.

https://thequietus.com/articles/09277-mark-e-smith-nick-cave-shane-macgowan-nme-interview

Just read this. He literally starts digging in on everyone for no fucking reason. Any time anyone tries to pin him down he turns around and rips them a new one for even attempting it. Communists are idiots. Nazis are idiots. He sees only stupidity, and when asked for his solution? You get pic related

"Whenever Big Black plays somewhere, it's always the same handful of people in every town, all dressed the same way. When we play, it's a huge crowd of all different ages and backgrounds. Big Black are doing what the Fall were doing in 1982-83...we're five years ahead of them. And the rock critics, bless them, I'm no ageist or anything, but some of these guys are like 45. They're still talking about John Lennon. When I was 19, I couldn't have cared less about that stuff."

>He remembers bumping into Kurt Cobain and his wife Courtney Love, in Los Angeles. He wanted The Fall to support his band, the legendary Nirvana, on their tour of Europe. Mark E Smith, The Fall’s lead singer, had other ideas.
>“Mark told our tour manager at the time not to let them on the bus under any circumstances whatsoever as he thought the guy was a loser,” he said.

>(kurt cobain) wears crap clothes, has too much money, he's married to that actress Courtney Pine"


>A lot of bands are into you, Big Black...
>Mark e smith: Oh, I know. Big Black are (muffled). You get a lot of resentment from these independent shits because they're still trying to be like the Fall in '82, '83. They're fucking light years behind. You don't see that the Fall has always been like that, always been ignoring what the trends were. I see Big Black as another fucking trend. They go around the world and play to 400 people in every city and they're all dressed the same. And all act the same. Why do world tours? Why not stay at home? The Fall audiences are interesting. They're good people. All age ranges, all races, all creeds. I enjoy coming to America with Brix to visit relations. This has been great so far. I've done American tours and been lucky to come out alive. You come out with nothing and nobody appreciates you. We've not ever been in Rolling Stone. We've not had any coverage there whatsoever, But they pour pages on these American and English bands that slavishly imitate us. And actually quote verbatim from my interviews, the ideas. You meet some of these American rock journalists -I'm not age-ist, you know-but some of 'em are fuckin' 45. And they still talk about Lennon and things like this. When I was 19 that was irrelevant to me.

Paul Joseph Watson tweeted about leaving his tap on all day to dab on environmentalists or something, so I wouldn't put it past some people. I think the left has backed off being actively against littering as they've become more against law enforcement though, and since the most littered neighborhoods seem to be "communities of color" cracking down on it is extra out of the question, not that there's probably much likelihood of catching someone in the act of littering to begin with though.

Maybe that's just what the people in charge want you to believe. They'll toss you a penny and warn you that a black man's coming to take it from you so that a class struggle gets turned into a race one.

Blacks on average are net takers from the government and whites on average are net contributors. The people in charge are consistently against racial struggle and class struggle, both of which are legitimate, though it is against our genetic interests to allow the benefits of a restructuring of the economic system to benefit races other than our own (whatever race you are). I would prefer a racially homogeneous state with a mixed economy and private property that would not tolerate the current level of wealth/earnings of the wealthiest. Anyway, you implied that colored neighborhoods are more littered due to a lack of funds. Unless you mean to increase taxes on the local level, how would it not be a flow of wealth largely from whites to blacks?

I'd say in spirit he had a form of it. The rampant attack on menial shit screams as the forefather to gen x 'nihilism': The other side of the coin to the art wankery of 90's indie. Even then, let's pretend he was devoid of posturing - It doesn't change the fact that the fans of let's say the fall and pavement (lol) are almost indistinguishable in the sub cultural context. Regardless of how much MES would screech about the fall being for regular blokes.
>>
>>90077161
>The rampant attack on menial shit screams as the forefather to gen x 'nihilism'
the fall was never about nihilism. mes was smart enough to not reproduce the gen x "antiestablishment" dead end street which is basically themodern version of the hippism failed "antiestablishment". the only legacy of both were at best fashion aesthetics. no idealism in the fall
>art wankery of 90's indie.
the fall was all about an exploration of rhythm without losing the sense of repetition and melody, adventurous but simple at the same time.

As for trannies, I've many trans friends and I have nothing against trying to stop yourself wanting to die, I don't really care if yer pa called you "Susan", it's not like Iggy Pops his birthname& were alright with him
>>
>>90077161
>the fall and pavement (lol) are almost indistinguishable in the sub cultural context.
pavement i guess is the archetype of all the indie cliches: careerist safe people and music. meanwhile the fall i think never fell in those cliches and was more about an unpredictable rhythm searching with mes as a conductor with the logical consequence of an approximation to other genres, unthinkable for the most prominent indie rock orthodoxy. so i guess the fall and pavement and the likes are in different context.

>>90077654
Excepting that he were exactly that. He chose to put his middle initial in his stage name because it were very "art school" & mysterious, his favourite people were "art school" intellectuals (Camus and Lovecraft), and his favourite bands were "art school" bands (Can and The Stooges).
You dislike "art school liberals" so much you've forgotten that pretty much every acclaimed musical act ever is entirely "art school".

While Peru, being in the global West, is Western, Mexico is not only Western, but also North American. Africa is also in the global West. It's a nonsense divider created in order to make Europeans feel good for 200 years before China took back it's monopoly of power and wealth (that it has had for all of recorded economic history). "The West" is only ever defined by those 200 years, and not by the other 2 millennia of history it has. "The West" caused the collapse of Rome, "The West" destroyed ancient knowledge (only recovered due to the Islamic golden age), "The West" is the only region that faced "the dark ages" due it's own idiocy. "The West" is a failure, and I can't wait to see the faces of the leaders when they finally realise that China has been centre of the world stage for near 20 years already & is in ascendancy.

It's called an apparatus of control. the spaces of free speech and narrative development are controlled by msm and tech giants who (as shown by mountains of public evidence) collaborate with intelligence communities to influence and control public opinion. Playing people against each other in identity factions is just one piece of the architecture of control. Recommend you read "Propaganda" by Edward Bernays and then "The System's Neatest Trick" by Theodore John Kaczynski, if you're really into it then read Jacque Ellull's "Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes" and (to bring this back around to /mu/...) why not try John Maus's "Control Societies"?
