William S. Burroughs’ 7 Occult Techniques for Smashing Reality

William S. Burroughs

William S. Burroughs was one of the 20th century’s pre-eminent magicians, and spent a lifetime experimenting with obscure techniques for altering consciousness. Here’s his seven favorite occult techniques for destabilizing control and smashing reality.

One of my early magical heroes, who I read obsessively in high school and college, was the author William S. Burroughs.

Burroughs is known not only for his prolific literary output but for his lifelong heroin addiction, as documented in his novel Naked Lunch, a perverse, hallucinatory satire of 1950s America inspired by Burroughs’ addiction, his transient and often grim life, and the visions induced when Burroughs ventured to South America to try to kick heroin by quaffing AyahuascaNaked Lunch made Burroughs a household name when it was brought to trial for breaking obscenity laws, and Burroughs won, setting a new precedent for free speech in the US.

SUNDAY BLOGGERS. A DIGEST OF BLOGS, PERSPECTIVES ON THE UK’s Vote for Brexit. TINA, SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED.

As one grows older one naturally becomes more circumspect, the old cliche was that one grew more conservative as one grew older. What are conservative values and who best represents them?
Neo-Liberalism is not Conservatism or indeed conservative it is a radical ideology which defines the centre ground of current political discourse. This centre ground is not a landscape that would easily be recognisable to the Post world war 2 generation. In this landscape left and right and indeed up and down do not exist. It is all, Right the top is fixed so as such there is no UP and all roads for those outside of the chosen Elite lead downwards, that is the Neo-Liberal Race to the Bottom.

Mrs Mays Conservative party is no longer representative of Conservative values, neither was Mrs Thatchers. A power struggle was won by Neo-Liberal ideologues in the Old Conservative party which was fought through the 1970s, the same struggle took place in the Labour party and resulted in 1997 in Son of Thatcher, Tony Blair. This video from 1986 sees Roy Jenkins who set up the Social Democratic Party in the UK along with 3 other people who were known as the Gang of Four. They merged into the LIB DEMS WHO REPRISED IN 2010 the 1951 Tory-Liberal alliance that formed a Tory government in spite of Labour having won the popular vote.

 

 

Neoliberalism shifted the political debate into a new orbit where a core belief was
´´Free Markets´´ and a new economics voodoo was ushered in and given the status of received truth to which there was no alternative. ´´TINA´´. Queen Tina was to be worshipped and never questioned indeed TINA was and is She who must be obeyed. Unlike the Dionysian pair or Matrifocal societies TINA was not a feminine Deity but archly patriarchal, cold and a bitter vengeful god, TINAs Noble lie was the Lie of Austerity. A lie Mrs May espouses and which was espoused in 2015 by all 3 Neo-Liberal sects of the TINA religion.

Happily, for my own middle age, a new Conservative leader has emerged on the scene, Jeremy Corbyn has conservative values of maintaining a Free at the point of use National Health Service, Free Education for all, and a foreign policy that seeks diplomacy and not War as a default setting.
A return to the Post War consensus which allowed a Conservative Prime Minister Harold Mac Millan to declare “You Have never had it so good´´.

Mrs May could well coin the phrase today, ´ have never had it so bad´and to borrow from Tory Boy Blair, ´Things can only get worse´ under this broken neoliberal paradigm. He will never learn and should give a little more thought to and display some genuine humility about the Chilcott report which details his many war crimes against democracy and humanity. Mrs May, well she should go back to Conservative re-education classes.
There is one true Conservative in this election and its Jeremy Corbyn. #Corbyn4PM vote for Labour when there’s still something left to conserve.

Slapstick comedy, farce, outlandish costumes and heckling: It’s the House of Commons and it’s also the British tradition of pantomime.

On Wednesday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn got in trouble for allegedly calling Theresa May a “stupid woman” in parliament after being mocked by the prime minister for not calling a vote of confidence in the government.

Starring
Theresa May as Cinderella
Michel Barnier as Prince Charming
Jeremy Corbyn as Baron Hardup
Arlene Foster as Wicked Stepmother
Boris Johnson as Ugly Stepsister 1
Jacob Rees-Mogg as Ugly Stepsister 2
Jean-Claude Juncker as Fairy Godmother
David Cameron, Nigel Farage as Pantomime Horse (both playing the back-end)

Fairy Godmother: I have sciatica.

Cinderella: But I can’t go to the ball with this Brexit deal, everyone will make fun of me.

Fairy Godmother: Let me have a look (reads, makes face)Nebulous.

Cinderella: What did you say?

Fairy Godmother: Nothing.

Narrator: The Fairy Godmother waves her magic wand and Cinderella’s rags turn into a beautiful dress. Her leopard-print shoes turn into glass leopard-print slippers. Her ragged, tattered Brexit deal transforms into a golden document that pleases everyone, even the Democratic Unionist Party.

(Audience: Boo! Hiss!)

TWO YEARS, A PARADIGM SHIFT IN POLITICS

A big change and paradigm shift? or, will the reactionaries of neo-liberalism manage to spin the lie machine one more time to allow the bourgeoisie to deny their own mutually assured enslavement.

1
Two years later. The Green Party has been hijacked by a joint leadership which is acting as Neo-Liberal GateKeepers and agitating against the democratic will of both the British and US people. Quite frankly UKIP seems less extreme to me these days that the Green Party. Corbyn is under yet another attack from the neo-liberal wing of the Labour Party and remains between a rock and a hard place. The Lib Dems are as toxic as ever to my own tastes, just not trustworthy and of course neo-liberal by definition.
So the Tories, if they manage to take back the Tory party from the neoliberals, could easily cement their already dominant position demographically through the constituency border changes, by following Trump’s common sense Charity begins at home policies. Now, this used to be called One Nation Toryism and whilst as a democratic Socialist I prefer a more egalitarian and less patronising view of human nature it looks like the shift into the new paradigm belongs to those ablest to shed old dogmas and embrace new potentials.
I watched Zizecks, The Perverts guide to ideology yesterday and it was a very good watch. It starts with a look at the late 1980´s budget film, They Live. With the mind control obedience subtexts in corporate media focused on consumerism. For me this past week, the first of President Trumps presidency is redolent of the Salem Witch Trials.
“A fire, a fire is burning! I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face! And it is my face, and yours, Danforth! For them that quail to bring men out of ignorance, as I have quailed, and as you quail now when you know in all your black hearts that this is fraud – God damns our kind especially, and we will burn, we will burn together!”
― Arthur Miller, The Crucible

DEMOCRATIC FAULT LINE, SOCIAL DEMOCRACY VS NEO LIBERALISM.

Back in 1986 Tony Benn and Roy Jenkin’s ran over the dividing line between the Right wing social democratic wing of the Labour party versus the Democratic socialist wing, the current fault line in British politics is the quarrel between social democracy and neo-liberalism.

The fault line runs across all political parties in Europe including the UK, it is painted as a Nationalism and populism against progressive internationalism But Globalisation is not internationalism it does not hold to any of the tenets of Social Democracy it is effectively anti-democratic.

THE UGLY SISTERS AND MAYS SLIPPER

Globalisation is the catch-all term for Neo-Liberal Corporate technocracy promoting the freedom of Big Capital and people as economic pawns, not citizens. We are allowed to participate in a periodic Karaoke event called a General election when we are asked to take our inspiration from the footwear or fashion sense and sound bite telegenic of vacuous ideologues chanting the same Mantra of TINA. Queen TINA she who must be obeyed.        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J-Y2VAk45c

POLITICS IDOL, WHEN MAKING THE TUNE YOUR OWN JUST ISN´T ENOUGH ANYMORE.

For a year or two now as I have forced myself to watch political programs, chat shows, the great debates in the house of commons and whatever the latest I´m a celebrity, house Jungle party who do you think can get us out of here fad, at least a couple of times a month seeing things at least once just to know what is being produced. I have become more and more vexed. Is it the same scripted dialogue are they all saying the same thing but in the best traditions of X Factor,” Just making it their own.´´.

NEO LIBERALISM NOW WITH OVERT FASCISM. MACRON (POT KETTLE, BLACK SHIRT )

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/1995/06/22/ur-fascism/ 

This is a very incisive and direct article. It shows Neo Liberalsism for the Extreme and Fascist Ideology that it is.

LAST NIGHT IN LAMBETH. TERRORISM , RAPE, POLITICS AND RELIGION. A GUIDE FOR THE PERPLEXED.(LONDON BRIDGE AND BOUROUGH MARKET MURDERS)

Last Night in Lambeth there was another terrorist attack perpetrated by Islamicist Terrorists, whilst no claims were made immediately for responsibility it is clear that this Attack was claimed for the extremist Wahhabi Islamist Jihadist ideology, which is exported from Saudi Arabi via proxy´s in several North African and Middle Eastern wars.Shortly after the first news reports started to emerge

the Telegraph newspaper and several celebrities whose accounts are monitored by the BBC´s Live News Feed team
called for a postponement of the General Election on the
8th of June.

Screen Capture from BBC

Whilst all people will stand in solidarity against the barbarous and cowardly attack, we should Hold our political leaders and institutions to account and those of our deep state Intelligence services.

So called Islamic State Daesh, formerly Al-Qaeda is a web of collective terrorist groups in which the CIA and MI6 have “assets”. These assets are of various types, sleepers, Double Agents, compromised or infiltrated cells
and so forth. AL Queda grew out of a joint MI6/CIA promotion of Islamicist resistance to the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan the recently decease Zbigniew Kazimierz “Zbig” Brzezinskiwas the architect of this aspect of Regime change destabilisation policy.

The Murders we now see clad in suicide vest and dead in our streets, following their cold-blooded murder of innocent Civilians among them women and children, are the direct progeny descended from these dark deep state operations and the Wahabi Islamist ideologies of Salafist Jihad corrupted beyond anything most , almost all, islamic scholars recognise as even remotely founded in the many sects and branches descended from the Prophet Mohammed ( peace be upon him)

Gaslight as expression[edit]

The psychological term gaslighting, which describes the form of psychological abuse in which the victim is gradually manipulated into doubting his or her own sanity, originated from the play and its two film adaptations. The fictional work is also considered the first artistic portrayal of this type of psychological abuse.[6][7]
