Meanwhile, in Austin yesterday, Logan Bucknam, the son of David Bucknam, Skowhegan, ME police chief, attempted to drive his car into a group of protesters, then pulled a gun and brandished it, pointing it at the crowd. He was detained and released with his firearm within 30 minutes.

aged yuppie spectacle aside and not to defend the "stand around with rifles" guys but they seem to mostly just, stand around with rifles as a gross gesture.

this couple a.) seemed to be in that "preemptive racist violent strike" place of anger and manufacured terror that often leads to a racist murder by these types and b.) were actively pointing guns at people (including each other!) with their fingers on the triggers. they seemed about a fraction of a second away from closing their eyes in a wince and pulling the trigger until it clicked while crying hysterically and screaming "rape!"

I like that he ends that insane bio by talking about working at a hot dog stand and remarking wistfully on how it was the best job he ever had before he chose to become a literal demonperson.

If anyone is bored and wants to elaborate on this that would be cool

I may or may not understand the explanation but it’s fun to try (tone: sincere)

i keep seeing gofundme's and venmo's for , not only hospital bills and eviction notices and ... and ... and ... , but also legal fees for the possibility of life in prison for "allegedly" torching cop cars &c &c &c , faces so common as to dispute the rarity of their crimes , felonies being slapped on the wrists of almost everyone , and this is yet another reason why these uprisings must push all the way thru , to wherever that may be , for the prisons will keep packing bodies into unmarked graves ....

it's kind of wild that americans have historically looked down on other countries for warehousing and liquidating people by typology

a conversation yesterday on how resistance becomes struggle , how oppressed by becomes revolts against , how to affirm an identity as the logic of whiteness becomes the recognition of one's negation , for life , true life , real life is only thru the horizon of struggle , which starts as soon as one's dejection , abjection is laid bare for what it truly is , the wound of the wrong world , and this is already starting , from the moment the third precinct was taken , but the transition is still embryonically struggling to be birthed , and the question of transition (from resistance against to struggle towards , from affirmation within to negation without , from the critique of isolated incidents of violence to that of the violent structure of the world , from standing up for to solidarity with - these are all the same questions) must be answered , but it's also the most difficult question to ask !

like , to move from the critique of "isolated" acts of police violence to the violence that structures both these and the world they police , a violence that isn't only structural , foundational , architectonic , but is itself an act , is also to move from the white or middle class or cis-het or ... or ... or paternalistic standing up for to an active solidarity in struggle , but how does that happen , how does that occur ?

the problem w the vocal , performative , abstract renunciation of individual privileges and freedoms is also the problem w 'things neeed to get worse , things need to get bad enough , for them to join in struggle' , the problem of the former is that it is like , ontologically , impossible for someone to give up the very things that structure their individual being , the problem of the latter is that it is just as impossible for these things that structure their individual being to be taken away , and moreover , the individual is a bogeyman , a false premise , for individual autonomy , freedom , privileges , are white supremacist constructs that are founded on the negation of blackness ...

and the conversation moved towards , in order to ask this question , answering the other : how to move from critiques of individual acts of police violence to the violence that both structures these and the world , how to reveal the fabric of violence , not just as a condition of possibility for violence , but as itself an act of violence , something that directly enforces and brutalizes the lives caught w/in its constraints

and i think it's simple:

take , for instance , the history of exchange , one must sell one's labor power in exchange for commodities that will replenish that power , one must work for the necessities that will get one back to work , and one must do this freely , but of course this freedom to choose how one will be oppressed is an unfreedom , because this choice is predicated upon the erasure of a previous choice , one can either be oppressed or not be oppressed , one can either be a worker or be ...... whatever one wants to be ! be reconciled with oneself ! be a flourishing human being whose needs are satisfied , etc. etc. , but this choice is functionally a choice between being a worker or not being at all , for one cannot be anything but ,

and this is where it gets interesting

one cannot be anything but a worker , for if one were not to work , and to be something else ? who will be there to stop one from being that ? the police ... if one organizes one's workplace in order to gain more freedom w/in the constraints of oppression , who will be there to break the strike ? the police ... if one were working in food production and refuses to take one's wage to buy food but "steals" food from the workplace (food that one's labor has produced) , who will be there to stop one ? the police ... if one were to refuse to be evicted , who will be there to stop one ? the police ... if one were literally to choose to be anything but what one is at any moment in one's life , who will stop one ? the police ... if one were to step out of line at any moment , who .... ? the police .... if one doesn't work , one starves , if one doesn't work , one is homeless , if one doesn't work , one dies

but why ? literally because of the police

but whiteness as the grammar of the world will never choose to step out of line because it is the line , and thus will never experience the violence of the police that quite literally enforces , with the possibility of violence at every moment , one's entire life from birth to death , the violence of the police at a structural level is : you will be who you are or you will not be . it is only that some lives are something that they don't recognize to be as abject , dejected , and oppressed as they actually are , while others are something that is socially dead ...

but , if you were to ask this question to anyone ! why do you go to work every morning .... i think , if one were to challenge them , it is really intuitive that they do because of the violence of the police , a violence that remains only possible never actual , because one will always choose the side of law and order , even if that means giving up one's dignity and the hope of ever flourishing , even if that means delegating the actual violence of the police to those who exist under the brackets of social death ....

you , the one reading this , experience the same violence of the police that enforces black death , it's just that it's always under the modality of possibility , not actuality , it's just that you can exist w/o stepping out of line , even if stepping out of line , means recognizing one's abasement and seeing the possibility of reconciliation w life ...
