FDR isn't to the left of Stalin! And so on and so forth. First of all the above graph represents the political spectrum as it actually is, in real life, rather than as it is presented in the mainstream media (MSM). In real life, for example, the USSR practiced state capitalism (a system where the state controlled surplus) which is only different to the private capitalism of the west (where private owners control surplus) in the most superficial details. Life for ordinary people under 'capitalism, 'communism' and 'fascism' is identical, because they all share the same basic attitude to money, law, growth, science, work and so on: hence Stalin, Blair, Hitler, Obama and co are all on the far right. The Overton Window is Nonsensel Another reason why this graph seems doubtful is, of course, because real people, in the real world, often have complex and contradictory views about a range of subjects. Most of the views of DH Lawrence, for example, were about as far left as you can possi- bly get; he rejected civilisation in toto. Yet he also suggested the working class should all be rounded up into Crystal Palace and gassed! My grandad used to read The Sun, voted conservative, praised Thatcher and regularly warned me about the blacks and gays up in London; yet in his actual behaviour he vigoriously reject- ed authoritarianism and inequality and believed that ordinary people did not need professionals to direct their activities. The Overton Window represents the limits of acceptable thought in mainstream media and politics. The left side is the position of the middle or professional class, the (new) Labour Party or Democrat Party, the Guardian, the BBC, the Washington Post and so on. These groups are firmly to the far right of the actual political spectrum, although it is difficult to perceive this as they also com- prise journalists and academics who are slightly to the left of them; Steven Pinker, Owen Jones, Christopher Hitchens and other corp employees (stagversives) are used to give an impression of balance and adversarialism, and to attract members of the 'anti-corp' or "socialist' demographic into their ads for carbon-neutral package holidays and ethical mousemats. To venture beyond the corp-es- tablishment friendly feminism' of Laurie Penny or the 'originality' of reactionary writers like Jared Diamond or Malcolm Gladwell-to suggest that wealth should be radically redistributed, that we should head towards a classless society or that the MSN is organ- ised to reward only establishment-friendly voices-is to go beyond the pale, into the land of woo' or, more ominously, 'extremism' This is why the Overton Window is ignored or dismissed in the MSM, which must maintain the illusion of 'impartiality, variety. 'balance' and even 'anti-establishment bias: It's also why maniacs like Nick Cohen and Oliver Kamm describe themselves as 'left-wing." So if the MSM left and right are fictions, what is left and right? On the left is individual freedom and equality, which is based on a basic basic trust in humanity, or in reality. On the right is authori- tarianism and social stratification, which is based on basic cynicism. The scale, therefore, is to some degree* one of sanity. The further right you go, the more you view the universe as a vast pyramid of power which people must do whatever is necessary to climb. For this reason I have listed 'theology, which bears upon one's funda- mental political outlook, the right being typically a place where aggressive atheism, abrahamic theism, sham 'yoga-and-mindful- ness' spirituality thrive, the left being a place of heretical (non-duat ist) theism, pantheism and the like, and the centre, typically, informed by reasonable agnostics and open-minded atheists. Likewise in no sense is Bill Hicks a Tolstoyan or Slavoj Žižek a Jungi- an or Thatcher a Hegelian. So the above scale is faithful to the range of political opinions outside the reverse telescope of the mainstream media, but it also represents a kind of schematic aggregate or rough approximation of the political position of major characters in Western political history (most of whom, yes, were white and male). Of course Hitler and Stalin, like a few ultra-ultra-ultra right wingers today, are officially just outside the acceptable spectrum (it's just not the done thing nowadays to explicitly persecute racial minori- ties). But their fundamental approach to society and to reality remains the same as Pinochet's, Thatcher's, Clinton's, Churchill's and so on: which is why in all their societies the poor end up getting shafted and nature ends up getting decimated. by Darren Allen llustrations by AI *ie. bearing in mind the approximations mentioned above -it's ludicrous to decisively rate anyone's sanity- hence 'truish-let alone cal Hicks saner than Orwell or Wilde saner than Morris.

Bernie Sanders: Once, I went down to a department store, I was with a rather old man who didn't understand how commercial businesses work. The old man reeked of stale old woman vagina, however, I kept this to myself afraid the old man might fucking shit his britches off. He then shouted unreasonably loud, "I never thought a 96 year old woman could get so wet nigga!" He's not even black. A nearby customer, who is black, gets mad fucking angry and slams the fuck out of the perfume counter. PERFUME GOES EVERYWHERE! The old man gets a overwhelming whiff of the perfume and begins having a violent seizure, shit flying out of his ass everywhere. Jack Black pranced on, by doing some weird ass face and slipped on the pile of liquid shit, screaming: "Fuck, can a man skip in peace?". A random child is caught stealing candy through all the commotion, to which the angry ass asian store owner gets fucking heated and slams a glass on Jack Blacks head. Jack Black faces the store owner and whips out a 12 gauge shotgun from his ass then proceeds to shotgun blast the store owner in the face with fury. Coming out of a tent located in the dog food aisle, Bernie Sanders said with pride, "In this country a man should be able to skip around a store without slipping on a steaming pile of liquid shit. That killing was justified." The repercussions were removed, and mostly everyone went about their day. However, the memories still lingered in Jack Black's mind, in fact; they haunted him as he tossed and turned every night with rage. As much as he tried, he just couldn't get the crusty shit globs out of his beard. Bernie showed up at his house later that night and slammed against his door with a can of pedigree loud as fuck: "Open the door you fat fuck, I have christmas dinner!" Jack Black didn't answer the door, as he was afraid of Bernie's sensible political opinions, and Bernie crawled up a nearby tree to sleep. The next morning, neighborhood children thought he was a pinata and started to yell "Give us some candy you old bitch!". Bernie replied "Here I'll give you some candy you little shit." Bernie proceeded to throw up dog food on them from last night. One of the "special" kids proceeded to scoop up the dog food and eat it like ripe sweaty ass on a hot summer day. His friend Tyrone Zimbabwe peeked his head out of the tree and yelled with splendor, “Holy shit nigga thas fuckin nasty!" A bunch of bloods showed up in a Bentley truck and started doing a drive-by on Jack Black's house. Jack Black finally heard all the commotion and raced outside of his house, he then grasped the retarded kid and chucked him at the bloods screaming, “Natural selection niggas!". The kid hit the truck like a retarded sack of potatoes to no effect, all while projectile vomiting dog food in a backflip all over the neighborhood kids. It was then revealed in epic fashion that Filthy Frank was the driver of the Bentley. To everyone's surprise Pink Guy was in the passenger seat, this confused everyone because most thought they were both the same person. grandayy Pink guy stuck his flaming ass out of the passenger seat window with a wild grin and completely ripped ass releasing toxic fumes like a Nazi gas chamber. Jack Black fucking died from inhaling the obnoxiously stanky bullshit ass fumes. Bernie Sanders waited until it was all over and jumped out of the tree, dog food falling all over. He landed with a sick ass parkour roll, and the bloods in the back seat said, "Damn this old nigga got clout." The bloods all lowered their weapons with ease "Why didn't you say it was you bernie? We ain't bouta' harm the one nigga that's gonna make weed legal." Then something miraculous happened, a crater opened in the ground and a big round boulder blocking the sacred entrance to christ's cave slowly moved itself aside, allowing a holy light to seep into the atmosphere. Then, Jack Black arose from the crater dressed in a white robe with a thorned wreath on his head. "I am now black jesus! I am here to atone for your sins!" The bloods all pause. Filthy Frank mutters “Nigga, do you have any idea how dumb that name sounds?" Black Jesus obviously has none of that and takes one of his vintage guitars from School Of RockTM, lights it on fire and hurls it at 50 miles per hour directly into the driver side window of the truck. This impact hits Filthy Frank and Pink Guy directly, cutting off Filthy Frank's head. The bloods in the back say "Aw fuck no nigga" and throw a grenade out of the window without pulling the pin. "Amateurs." Black Jesus mutters, while pulling a glock out of his back pocket and shooting them both. Suddenly, Pink guy puts his head up. He managed to duck under the guitar that Black Jesus had thrown! He yells, “O0OYYYUUAAA" and climbs out of the car window. Black jesus picks up the old unpulled grenade and throws it into the car. Pink guy screams as he runs from the car and *BOOM!*. Pink guy then pulls out a walkie talkie and mutters sexually into it "Got a big dick nigga over here, need backup!". Immediately after, two sedans roll up and pink guy hurls himself onto one as the other pulls in front of him and starts shooting. Pink guy rolls away. Satan was the shooter, naked in the front seat, fucking George Bush in the ass as his head stuck outſof the pink car's floor. Hillary Clinton was sitting in the back seat getting fucked mega hard with a spinning rusty minigun held by a Nigerian Warlord. The windows were bulletproof, and the warlord sat in front of the window smiling his ass off. He held eye contact with Black Jesus the entire time while Donald Trump sat next to them in the backseat playing Fornite on his Iphone XVII. Black Jesus fired multiple shots at the warlord's window, but this didn't make the Warlord flinch or stop smiling. Once he was done with Hillary, the Warlord pulled it out of Hillary's stank pussy, stepped outside, spun it up, and took aim as his whole inbred family climbed out of the trunk and watched. "SUCK MY DICK!" yelled the warlord as Hillary's juices flew off the minigun onto his wifes face. As He started to shoot down Black Jesus's house and caused Bernie Sanders to shit his pants so hard all the neighborhood dogs came running to eat all the dog food that came from Bernie's ass.

 Coming out of a tent located in the dog food aisle, Bernie Sanders said with pride,
 "In this country a man should be able to skip around a store without slipping on a
 steaming pile of liquid shit. That killing was justified." The repercussions were
 removed, and mostly everyone went about their day.
 However, the memories still lingered in Jack Black's mind, in fact; they haunted him
 as he tossed and turned every night with rage. As much as he tried, he just couldn't
 get the crusty shit globs out of his beard. Bernie showed up at his house later that
 night and slammed against his door with a can of pedigree loud as fuck: "Open the
 door you fat fuck, I have christmas dinner!" Jack Black didn't answer the door, as he
 was afraid of Bernie's sensible political opinions, and Bernie crawled up a nearby
 tree to sleep. The next morning, neighborhood children thought he was a pinata
 and started to yell "Give us some candy you old bitch!". Bernie replied "Here I'll give
 you some candy you little shit." Bernie proceeded to throw up dog food on them
 from last night. One of the "special" kids proceeded to scoop up the dog food and
 eat it like ripe sweaty ass on a hot summer day. His friend Tyrone Zimbabwe peeked
 his head out of the tree and yelled with splendor, “Holy shit nigga thas fuckin
 nasty!"
 A bunch of bloods showed up in a Bentley truck and started doing a drive-by on
 Jack Black's house. Jack Black finally heard all the commotion and raced outside of
 his house, he then grasped the retarded kid and chucked him at the bloods
 screaming, “Natural selection niggas!". The kid hit the truck like a retarded sack of
 potatoes to no effect, all while projectile vomiting dog food in a backflip all over the
 neighborhood kids.
 It was then revealed in epic fashion that Filthy Frank was the driver of the Bentley.
 To everyone's surprise Pink Guy was in the passenger seat, this confused everyone
 because most thought they were both the same person.
 grandayy
 Pink guy stuck his flaming ass out of the passenger seat window with a wild grin
 and completely ripped ass releasing toxic fumes like a Nazi gas chamber. Jack Black
 fucking died from inhaling the obnoxiously stanky bullshit ass fumes.
 Bernie Sanders waited until it was all over and jumped out of the tree, dog food
 falling all over. He landed with a sick ass parkour roll, and the bloods in the back
 seat said, "Damn this old nigga got clout." The bloods all lowered their weapons
 with ease "Why didn't you say it was you bernie? We ain't bouta' harm the one nigga
 that's gonna make weed legal."
 Then something miraculous happened, a crater opened in the ground and a big
 round boulder blocking the sacred entrance to christ's cave slowly moved itself
 aside, allowing a holy light to seep into the atmosphere.
 Then, Jack Black arose from the crater dressed in a white robe with a thorned
 wreath on his head. "I am now black jesus! I am here to atone for your sins!"
 The bloods all pause. Filthy Frank mutters “Nigga, do you have any idea how dumb
 that name sounds?" Black Jesus obviously has none of that and takes one of his
 vintage guitars from School Of RockTM, lights it on fire and hurls it at 50 miles per
 hour directly into the driver side window of the truck. This impact hits Filthy Frank
 and Pink Guy directly, cutting off Filthy Frank's head. The bloods in the back say
 "Aw fuck no nigga" and throw a grenade out of the window without pulling the pin.
 "Amateurs." Black Jesus mutters, while pulling a glock out of his back pocket and
 shooting them both. Suddenly, Pink guy puts his head up. He managed to duck
 under the guitar that Black Jesus had thrown! He yells, “O0OYYYUUAAA" and
 climbs out of the car window. Black jesus picks up the old unpulled grenade and
 throws it into the car.
 Pink guy screams as he runs from the car and *BOOM!*. Pink guy then pulls out a
 walkie talkie and mutters sexually into it "Got a big dick nigga over here, need
 backup!".
 Immediately after, two sedans roll up and pink guy hurls himself onto one as the
 other pulls in front of him and starts shooting. Pink guy rolls away. Satan was the
 shooter, naked in the front seat, fucking George Bush in the ass as his head stuck
 outſof the pink car's floor. Hillary Clinton was sitting in the back seat getting fucked
 mega hard with a spinning rusty minigun held by a Nigerian Warlord. The windows
 were bulletproof, and the warlord sat in front of the window smiling his ass off. He
 held eye contact with Black Jesus the entire time while Donald Trump sat next to
 them in the backseat playing Fornite on his Iphone XVII. Black Jesus fired multiple
 shots at the warlord's window, but this didn't make the Warlord flinch or stop
 smiling. Once he was done with Hillary, the Warlord pulled it out of Hillary's stank
 pussy, stepped outside, spun it up, and took aim as his whole inbred family climbed
 out of the trunk and watched.
 "SUCK MY DICK!" yelled the warlord as Hillary's juices flew off the minigun onto his
 wifes face. As He started to shoot down Black Jesus's house and caused Bernie
 Sanders to shit his pants so hard all the neighborhood dogs came running to eat all
 the dog food that came from Bernie's ass.

 Vladivostok. Parents were part of the burgeoning soviet middle class of the
 1980s. I could write forever but l'll give some interesting tidbits
 My father was born in western Ukraine in 1942. His family were what we would
 call "kulaks". Stalin forcibly moved his family to the Far East when he was 8
 (literally crammed into boxcars).
 My mother is from Rostov and her parents were college professors. Her
 grandfather was a minor noble and (proudly) served in the white army and never
 hid it. However He was sent to the front in WW2 and saw action and got some
 medals.
 Both of my parents went to school my father was an engineering “VP" and my
 mom was a software engineer. In the USSR your salary didn't really mean
 anything but what favors your job could provide was your currency. My dad as a
 VP for a large commercial fishing company allowed us to have a nice quality of
 life. He was able to travel abroad to Italy and Japan in the 1980s for work and
 bring us back stuff.
 One notable example was that my dad was buddies with the guy who was in
 charge of all the supermarkets in town. He got my mom a job working for him
 directly to set up early computer based databases for inventory management,
 accounting etc. In the 1980s when there were food shortages and long lines, my
 family didn't have to wait, they would have our weekly groceries ready and my
 mom would just go pick them up in the back. As a sort of favor for some
 business agreements. These sort of quid pro quo's were very common and were
 the real lifeblood of the economy.
 In terms of western influence my mom grew up in the 1970s with all the western
 music like Beatles zeppelin Levi's jeans etc. because sailors would bring them
 and sell contraband at the market (in this case the black market was literally a

 She's a little too much of a boomer to be "anti lib" or a full like Marxist Leninist
 but l'll take what I can get.
