its funny to me that one of the reasons i decided to be an anthropologist is because i'm intrested in social technology. i mean, just looking around its so funny how there just hasn't been any advancement in the human condition. how the past four (4) years had a strong element of rival father-son diads. george bush & george "dubbya" bush vs. saddam hussien & his sons. shit, how dawn of time is that fucking shit? dubbya even inherited the god damn presidency. the whole bush clutch has nepotism written on their coat of arms. & then the wolf at the door going after saddam's sons to the tune of thiry million dollars ($30,000,000.00)? come on guys, get out of the sandbox.

but really, the more i study about this shit, the more i start thinking that maybe social tech is a waste of time. i mean, if humanity can survive till there is the creation of a post-human contingent, i'll throw my lot in with them. really, the other break that could really give a strong in for it would be an apocalypse. nuclear war remnants might be willing to try all kinds of new things. a diaspora of all mankind could be just the sort of diversification thats needed. which is really my problem with fascism in most of its forms- the monolithic face it presents encourages homogenization. i don't mind the unified front, but there needs to be all sorts of cross breeding & co-mingling.

its a fucking shame that all anthropolical research has to be investigative. i mean, there is the problem of the fact that you can never repeat an archeological dig, on one hand. & despite some of the hard sciences looking down on the invasive nature of anthropological investigations, there is the comfort of physics to keep us warm- all you motherfuckers are being invasive. thanks bohr for giving us ammunition for the guns of our bitterness. the thing is though, i want to make my anthropological experiments. its like poor b.f. skinner, getting flak for making psychological experiments. man, just give me a fucking chance & i could make being human count for something.
