A Tale of Two Flies


By Der Kosmonaut 
  There once were two flies and this story will tell how there was only one left. The first fly was a common outdoor fly. He was originally a House Fly but was evicted by the Jocko Homosapiens whose dwelling he had tried to survive. His first survival lesson was that Jocko Homos don't like the likes of him. They persistently and aggressively tried to kill him. They deployed a weapon which would cause him to crash while flying or would crush him while standing on the surface. Like most of his fellow species he had quick reflexes and happened to just escape out from harms way. It came to pass that the Jocko Homos had poisoned the atmosphere and he had no choice but to fly out the open window never to return.

Heidegger’s Notion of “Being”

By Ljubodrag Duci Simonović

Heidegger fell into the trap that he, himself, had set. If Being “remains self-explanatory and unquestioned and therefore unthought”, why does Heidegger mention being as “something”? Moreover, Heidegger declares Being to be a non-conceptual phenomenon and then determines its specific concept, reducing it thereby to an object. The specificity of Being as “something” lies, according to Heidegger, in that we cannot comprehend it, can only experience it. Also, Being has a personal nature and we cannot ask of it “what it is”. Furthermore, “Being remains self-explanatory and unquestioned and therefore unthought”. And,  “Being persists in the long forgotten and fathomless truth”.

Smart, Eh? The Electronic Concentration Camp Of Totalitarian Capitalism Has Arrived

"In the future we'll all be subjected to retina scans. Everyone's personal information from school grades and criminal records to their finances will be stored in a central database. The cops will be able to stop anyone and do a retina scan. The cops will have access to all that person's information through a computer. 'Oh! You don't have enough credits! We're bringing you in!"

Heidegger and Nazism




By  Ljubodrag Duci Simonović,


In Heidegger’s philosophy, we can discern a political doctrine underlying the Catholic and fascist vision of the future. It is an “industrial feudalism”, which involves the abolishment of man as an emancipated citizen and thus as a political agent in the establishment of society as a political community; reduction of the state to an instrument of the most powerful capitalist groups in their attempt to establish “social peace”; the abolishment of trade unions and the degradation of workers to industrial serfs and the exaltation of capitalists to feudal masters; the abolishment of a class society by replacing it with a “folk community”; the establishment of a totalitarian political will embodied in a “Leader” and in the ruling order …. “Ein Volk – ein Führer!” – this is the political essence of Heidegger’s fundamental ontology. It is explicitly expressed in Heidegger’s view from 1933, that “the Führer alone is the present and future German reality and the law”.
