Back by dope Demand; Renegade with a New Cause

Ow yes, it has been a while. Let’s call it literary hibernation. Not that there wasn’t anything to write about. Too many things happened, that shocked the world and too many shocking events occurred, most on this earthly plane remained ignorant about.

It has been a challenging autumn for the Dark Fairy, contemplating life while dealing with serious skin issues. I have interpreted this as a sign, that after years of KNOWING that  a true Dark Fairy Adventure lifestyle is the way forward, the Dark Fairy should now actually live and breathe it. The knowing and not doing can lead to friction and frustration and last autumn it hit me; I am to live that lifestyle to the full or die trying. So, I am fleeing the corporate prison once more. I am leaving the Rock and I am, yet again, to spread some Dark Fairy dust in more exotic parts of the world. There are a couple of weeks to go and I am as excited as a four-year old on the eve of her fifth birthday.

Don’t be Trumped

After what seems like dozens of celebrity deaths in the last year and a bit, that made many an 80s kid feel like there are really getting on, as all their childhood heroes seem to be passing on, we had quite some political earthquakes. After Brexit and the selection of the Trump presidency, anything seems possible and I’d place my bets on Marine Le Pen becoming the next president of France.

If you consider yourself a self-respecting leftie, an intellectual and/or a feminist, you are supposed to despise Trump by default and you wish to rally the whole world to join the anti-Trump movement. I suggest you don’t be fooled. As a former self-respecting leftie, self-proclaimed intellectual and feminist- it’s not that I changed my views, I just don’t want to deal with those labels and paradigms any longer- I am by no means a Trump fan. I just think that rallying against Trump is distracting is us from rallying against the real boogie man: the puppet master that controls the Trumps and the Hillaries and the Obamas and all the other bastards across the world. Obama, being sold to us as the ‘cool president’, is just as much of a bastard as the rest of them. Issuing more executive orders than any of his predecessors combined and being at war every single day of his 8 year presidency is no mean feat and terribly uncool. Not leaving just one, not two, no, no, not three, but four countries in failed-state mode; that’s Obama-cool for you.

Ditch the boxes

Which brings me to leftist militancy. I recently had a taste of it, dished out by a person I considered a homey for years, and let me tell you; the taste is vile. With leftist militants, I don’t mean the fake-anarchist, who go out rioting on Labour Day. I mean the boxed-in intellectuals with a statist’s mindset, advocating diversity until you disagree with them. Then they come down on you like ton of bricks and call you every uncool word under the sun. You have an issue with the transgender agenda being stuffed down your throat? You are a bigot and a bastard. You understand why people voted Brexit in the UK and Trump in the US? You are a populist and intellectually challenged. You are against mass migration as your government has no infrastructure in place to deal with said migration? You are a a xenophobe and a racist. If you claim that women can be their own worst enemy when it comes to fighting a -perhaps illusionary- patriarchy? you’re a sexist or a brain-washed twat.

We are being told it’s about the battle of the sexes and the struggle for the means of production. We have to fear the upcoming race war and the LBGTQ-XWZ gang is coming to get you if you wish to stick to conventional living.

If you don’t want to go for the ‘we-are-the-world’ theme, then at least realise, that your fellow and sister victims of the system are not your enemies. There are likely just as ‘pathetic’ as you and just that; another victim of the system. Maybe it’s high time we just all ditch that victimhood.
