Spitting Image / Les Guignols De L’info : American Version , Will They Work ?

Spitting Image / Les Guignols De L’info : American Version , Will They Work ?

I’ve been a huge fan of Spitting Image and Les Guignols De L’info for a long time now.

It all started with catching glimpses of Contra Informação on television . I would have the RTP channel on cable during the 2000s . I was 13 when September 11th happened and at the time there was webcartoons satirizing George W Bush and Osama Bin Laden . One video that went viral around that time was a Budweiser commercial ( WAZZ-UP ! ) parody featuring realistic caricature puppets of Obama Bin Laden , Saddam Hussein , Muammar al-Gaddafi calling each other over the phone parodying the commercial . Suddenly it shows that 2 Government Men ( who look like Sylvester Stallone ) are tapping into the phone call. George W Bush ruins it by going on a microphone shouting ( WAZZ-UP ) with causes the terrorists to hang up the phone.

This was my introduction to Les Guignols De L’info. I was so amazed with the puppets and … here’s a thing about me , when I see and ear something that I like , I become obsessed . It’s a good thing that I don’t drink. lol

I was talking to a puppeteer friend of mine about these shows and he told me they were a rip off of Spitting Image. At that time I started high school shortly after. The first things I’ve seen of Spitting Image was a very pixelated video clip of The Who ( My Generation ) parody from 1986 ,   a clip of an interview with Ian Hislop talking about The Spitting Image 1987 Election Special , The very first episode , An episode from 1985 which ended with a parody album commercial about the RS232 Interface Lead . This was before YouTube , so let’s just say that don’t know anything about “ illegal downloading “ back then. 😉 Then on a couple trips to New York , I went to the The Paley Center For Media ( The Museum of Television and Radio ) and watched as much Spitting Image as I could find. The first time was this compilation of the best of Spitting Image’s first 3 series. The on my next trip , I watched a couple episodes from 1989 and the 1990 episode where Margret Thatcher was in a coffin the whole entire episode ( symbolized her resignation ) .

And I have been a huge fan since. 🙂

In recent times , there has been news about the possibilities of not only a Spitting Image revival in America but also a Les Guignols revival in America. Now I’m from America but there’s a reason why I like British and French comedy. I like my comedy creative and satirical. I’ve been a fan of Jim Henson’s Muppets my whole entire life and got into Monty Python’s Flying Circus in childhood. Perhaps Spitting Image and Les Guignols as well as Dinosaurs introduced me into leftist politics. When I got into Anarchism in the summer of 2017 , the funny thing is I kind of understood Spitting Image and Les Guignols De L’info more. 🙂 Now I don’t speak a word of French , but I still enjoy watching Les Guignols . I just watch the body language for the most part and if there’s a translator on me , I would try to figure out what those puppets are saying. And when I do , it amazes me what they were able to get away with. Both Spitting Image and Les Guignols De L’info got away with more than even South Park.

So with the question remaining , Would American versions of Spitting Image / Les Guignols De L’info work ? My first question is “ WHY an AMERICAN VERSION ? “ I loved the shows the way they were. Also I find British swear words and slang funny ( Yep that shows that I’m from America lol ) . British Comedy makes me want to understand the differences of their culture compared to America. How they call Soccer “ Football “ , How they call TV / Television “ The Telly “ , How they call French Fries “ Chips “ and how they call Potato Chips “ Crisps “ for example. Or how we call a series of episodes per year of a television show a Season where in Britain they call it a series but we call the show as a whole a “ series “ . lol It’s interesting and fun to learn. Saying an American version of Spitting Image and or Les Guignols De L’info is kind of like saying an American Monty Python’s Flying Circus. To me , that sounds like a total dystopia , just like any reboot / remake that’s not from the original people , it’s going to suck and it’s going to disappoint fans. But of course in capitalism , no one cares about the cult following fandom that actually cares about the show. They want to reach the masses.

Americans for the most part never heard of Spitting Image and Les Guignols De L’info. The only thing about Spitting Image that most Americans know about is the Genesis Land of Confusion music video from 1986 , and even then most people think all the puppets were created for that one music video. They have absolutely no idea they had a television show of their own. However those who were around the 1980s might have remembered the 3 NBC Specials.

It’s kind of like answering the same question on why the 1990s Muppet Movies were so good and better than The Muppets ( 2011 ) and Muppets Most Wanted , all four movies were made after Jim Henson’s death and all four had The Walt Disney Company involved. The answer to that is the same with why the NBC Spitting Image specials were great , they were made by the original crew .

I think Sid and Marty Krofft were hired to create DC Follies . Sid Krofft said that with DC Follies he was delivering what the American audiences wanted to see but not vicious like Spitting Image.

And that’s my point . If an American Spitting Image and or Les Guignols was possible then it would end up like a cross between DC Follies and Saturday Night Live.

Americans are very cautious with their satire for the most part. Kind of liberal. Unless you count South Park which is currently Right Wing Libertarian ( The Libertarian Party ) and kind of centrist and same with most American satire like Bill Maher and SuperNews! ( which was inspired by 2DTV I think ) .

Besides , there’s already an American Spitting Image show out in time of Trump which is Stephen Cobert’s Our Cartoon President on Showtime. And it just makes SuperNews! Look good and it’s not as great as Lil Bush which was on Comedy Central years ago when I was in high school .

I heard about the Les Guignols American revival which someone from The Daily Show with John Stewart being involved as well as Robert Smigel ( Saturday TV Funhouse from SNL which I’m a fan of ) . It’s almost like no one seen the PBS documentary “ Anti-Americans : A Love / Hate Relationship “ . It’s like the magazine version of Les Guignols De L’info was Charlie Hebdo and Spitting Image was like a cross between Mad Magazine and Private Eye Magazine as well as Week Ending / Dead Ringers .

In Europe they were fearless when it comes to satire. Les Guignols De L’info lasted 18 years longer than Spitting Image , had a bigger budget and they went beyond any satire show I’ve ever seen.

And when Charlie Hebdo got attacked in 2015 , Les Guignols reported it with the same fearless satire as Charlie Hebdo. I often wonder if that was the reason why they were about to get canceled.

The big story was that Vincent Bolloré bought Canal+ and was going to cancel Les Guignols De L’info as a favor from his friend Nicolas Sarkozy due to his worry that Les Guignols would ruin his chances of being re-elected in 2017.

The writers from the 2000s were fired , the producer / show runner shortly after , Les Guignols was half it’s length and the budget kept dropping until they were canceled in 2018.

What was interesting was there was 3 last episodes mocking the situation.

One was PPD in the familiar Les Guignols De L’info setting going to a crew party where he hears the show was getting canceled and he packs up .

The other one was a goodbye song which is quite similar to the ending of Spitting Image in 1996 except it was more low key.

The final episode featured PPD and Jacques Chirac leaving the Canal + studio where Bob Sylvester of The World Company dismisses them. The last episode ends with PPD looking back and leaving slowing in depression , sadness and that feeling of loss that the satirists lost and the evil capitalists have won.

There’s clearly a difference between American humor , satire and culture vs Europe humor , satire and culture . And if one or the other shows were revived , it won’t matter if they are going to go after Trump , the show would be commodified , dumb down and just like all the great classic cartoon characters , they would become shadows of their former selves .

So when Roger Law mentioned in an interview that the American revival was going to be written by Americans , I knew that was a sign that it wasn’t going to be great. Both shows didn’t mind not being patriotic and nationalistic to America but in America it’s a totally different story. If you are not patriotic in America , people will hate you and want you out of the country.

The new Spitting Image puppets look so good , it looks more like the heyday Spitting Image from 1984 – 1986 and not so much the Pablo Bach caricatures from the mid 1980s until the end of the run as well as 2DTV and Contra Informação ( which had some obscure Spitting Image puppets on there . )

But when you don’t have great satirists like Ian Hislop on board , and you have American writers instead ( which is not likely they are going to be leftist or even at least as progressive as the ones who written great satire on the show Dinosaurs ) , It’s not like they heyday of Mad Magazine is what I’m getting at.

Still I’ll be excited to see Spitting Image / Les Guignols De L’info either way. Besides there should be a better release for them on DVD and digital anyways.

At the time I write this , next month would be exactly the 10th anniversary of when I ran away from my abusive father and since the traumatic events that happened to me as mentioned in my first book “ Adults Get Bullied Too ! “ https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/08/adults-get-bullied-too-erica-crooks.html

Ironically I came face to face with the thumbnails of some of the very videos that triggered my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder . Fortunately after 10 years of PTSD recovery , I was able to see these pictures without the fear that my life was in danger or suicidal tendencies as I had previously.

I didn’t even bother watching the videos and why should I ? I have so much self love , self esteem and self confidence in myself that seeing and hearing what some bullies have to say and think about me is a complete and utter waste of my time and attention.

But I’m not going to pretend what they did was no big deal and just laugh it off because there is in truth no joke. If there is one , it’s a satirical aim towards them because those who hurt others hurt themselves ( Ok I took that from The Tale of The Bunny Picnic lol 😛 ) .

I may have gained weight since 10 years ago due to my isolation , alienation , recovering in my PTSD and deep depression but perhaps I can be looked at like a Budda figure since spirituality , a satirical sense of humor , my loves in life , anarchism , and achieving goals such as gaining what I have lost and finding the love of my life ( My Twin Flame ) …. I HAVE ONE ! Not the Bully ! I’m still alive at the time I write this. They are the losers , not me. I did absolutely NOTHING wrong and I am not alone.

I had thoughts of revealing the very names of the very men who started this sick dark triad cyberbullying since 2008 and to this very day , the very men who paid me $80 to freelance them on 2 animated projects … Why should I bother saying their names or the projects which were NOT to help them with their Hollywood entertainment industry career as they once claimed …. Besides , it’s already on my portfolio names and all https://ericacrooks.weebly.com/filmography.html .

I remember the videos which I had filmed where they had this obsession with making me look like a muslim with islamophobia and all. I am anti-religious however as an Anarchist I am all for religious anarchism because it’s spirituality since there’s no hierarchy in it so therefore it’s no longer a religion or a cult. 🙂 Also liberal religious people would seem to not be filled with hate like the religious right in general.

One video was where I was proving a point when it came to the free speech of adult puppetry , animation and satire which was my right to do so. It was unfortunately patriotic because I was talking about my “ American “ civil rights with nationalistic patriotic music and the flag at the end. Yeah… it was 10 years ago , also I didn’t come out as a Trans Woman yet but I still was Androgyne / Genderqueer however the way I looked didn’t seem it , being dressed like a preppy due to my abusive authoritarian parents.

So looking back , I’ve already talked about the events that had happened in Adults Get Bullied Too !  https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/08/adults-get-bullied-too-erica-crooks.html

But there’s a reason why I’m not going to bother pointing out these two. Perhaps they were the ones doing those really crappy imitations of The Erica Crooks Show ( my satirical puppet show ) but I’m sure there was others involved which they have networked with 4chan and other dark triad bullies who suffer with toxic antisocial personality disorders and are politically right wing ( aren’t they all , all right wingers are fascists ) .

They are not the only ones. Some are more a threat than others. But as an Anarchist , I know that I’m not the only one who’s recognizing this abuse. I am so grateful for how Transgender people are being recognized more and the awareness of cyberbullying on the internet.

Also the fact that ANTIFA would kick the butts of bullies ANYWHERE , ANY PLACE and ANY TIME ! I am a pacifist but of course there’s comfort in that. Perhaps doing posts like this is my form of direct action I suppose. That and political satire aka Con & Spy Rotten ( Yeah Yeah Exactly Man ) .

For those who have had similar events happen in your life just remember you are not alone , you are loved , self love is key , follow your dreams regardless , do research of what you fear so you can understand it and they fear will go away a little bit and NEVER EVER ALLOW SOMEONE TO CONTROL YOUR LIFE EVER ! Because fear is a tool of control and therefore hierarchical which is something Anarchists are AGAINST !

Is Science Hierarchical ?

Is Science Hierarchical ?

Erica Crooks Blog 2019 - Is Science Hierarchical ?

Tumblr : https://officialericcrooks.tumblr.com/post/186717315736/is-science-hierarchical

Blogger : https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/08/is-science-hierarchical.html

As I was researching the question if evil can be cured. With all my research of personality disorders , all the sorts of therapies …

Behavior therapy , rehabilitation , Clinical Psychology. Psychotherapy , Neurology…

And I’d like to refer back to a previous blog article

https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/07/spiritual-anarchism-anarchism-vs-new.html

Perhaps I’m just getting back into spirituality because what is science anyway ?

According to Google definition results

Science Is “ the intellectual ( says who ? ) and practical

( of or concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas. (of an idea, plan, or method) likely to succeed or be effective in real circumstances; feasible. )

activity encompassing the systematic ( sounds hierarchical ) study of the structure ( oh yeah ) and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.

Fine , what is REAL ?

Real

( actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact; not imagined or supposed.

(of a substance or thing) not imitation or artificial; genuine. )

Before I go on with my rant to say F**K Science and realism , let me tell you where I’m coming from.

I have a Twin Flame , we have telepathy , maybe that can be proven by science …. MAYBE NOT ! Is , is.

I follow my intuition , can intuition be proven by science , probably NOT !

I follow my heart , what is a heart ? MEAT ! An Organ ! What about love…

What about Love ? WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF LOVE ? ( Before I say you can take your “ pseudo “ remarks AND SHOVE IT ! )

Love : an intense feeling of deep affection. , a great interest and pleasure in something. feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone).

Feeling

an emotional state or reaction.

a belief, especially a vague or irrational one. ( interesting JUDGEMENT )

Emotion

a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.

SCREW Neurology !

What did we learn from the story “ Frankenstien “ ? You can put a body together , but love is a mystery and if you deny it , it turns to the ego .. evil .. “

So that in a sense , love is the answer .  AND SCIENCE CAN NOT PROVE EVERYTHING !

If you rely everything on science , you reject the true mysteries of life.

As mentioned in The Secret , there can be someone DYING in the hospital bed , their body is so damaged , doctors can say that it’s impossible. This person is going to die and there’s nothing we can do about it. What if these doctors don’t believe in miracles , coincidences , the strange positive ironies of life….

Suddenly the will of this person will breath and with this spirit , the body CURES ITSELF !

Spirit 1 , Science 0 !

Why are there things that can not be explained by science ? You ask them , the narcissists who think they are the smartest and most intelligent people in the world , they will just shrug and say “ because it is not real  , can’t be proven by science. “

This person’s name is Quinton ( INTJ ) . He’s made three known websites Slayerment / TruthControl and CrowdFreedom . He’s an Anarchy-Capitalist ( Not real Anarchist ) / Right Wing Libertarian . Most for the stuff that he has said has made people very angry and isn’t very true at all.

In one video he talks about the smartest MBTI type . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86s1wXYQAnw

In the beginning he says it’s the INTJ jokingly because that is his type. He says the top ones are INTP / INTJ then INFP ( mine ) and INFJ .

He does believe that Thinker types are smarter than Feelers because Animals feel but don’t listen to reason ( his opinion ) , HOWEVER he does admit perhaps he might be wrong. His website TruthControl mentions spirituality and he has also mentioned his interests in The Law of Attraction and Abraham Hicks .

In another video ( which is how I discovered him a few years ago and I think is his best article / blog video ) iNtuitives vs Sensors ( iNtuitive Bias which is controversial in the MBTI Online Communities ) he has mentioned that iNtuitives are SMARTER than Sensors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zba9jnEOQqw&t=3s

As an INFP I do believe that is true. As I read the Anarchist FAQ on how this hierarchical society shapes people and perhaps is responsible for the Extraverted Sensor catered Society GLOBALLY , it’s interesting to think about because it does sound true.

Quinton in the video talks about intelligence , the intelligence he refers to in this video is which types are most “ Influential “ .

I would have to say the Feelers are most influential but then again how do you measure MBTI ?

Albert Einstein was known for his scientific theories and Martin Luther King Jr was known for his peace activism to end racism . However very little people know that both were LEFTISTS !

I believe those who side with hierarchy tend to be ST / TJ types while NP / F types are more chill.

In conclusion ,

If you’ve seen my work , you know I live in the land of imagination ( very typically INFP right ? ) . I do have a Twin Flame ( I think she’s ESFP , might be subject to change at Union ) , and I write blogs such as this.

I think 5D Earth perhaps will get rid of any last bit of hierarchies from non-friendly animals to any sort of scientific laws.

They say spiritually that the only thing that is real is the power of love.

And if emotions can be measured on an organ called a brain , you may call me stupid but to me I think that’s dumb. It kind of reminds me of the smart ass remark I wrote on my final Astrology ( science Astrology not REAL spiritual Zodiac Astrology which my High School teacher thought was crap ) test which was “ How do we know a solid answer about stuff in space if people haven’t been there themselves. “ Surprisingly I got a good grade … I think my teacher written a note how I refuse to answer any of the questions correctly however he admired my ability to think outside the box. This guy was funny , perhaps an ENTP , very wacky , the students loved him , but he committed suicide years after I graduated. Several short tribute websites were made in his memory.

So that’s my point , someone could be a master of science , AND STILL FEEL DEPRESSED AND COMMIT SUICIDE ! Perhaps a lack of love for oneself I suppose.

Is science completely useless ? I don’t think so. Anarcho-Transhumanism or some sort of Anarcho-Communist Science can solve all the worlds problems…

However , science is only useful for Earth Stuff. Spirit and Soul is NOT Earth Stuff. Perhaps there is life before birth and after death. Somethings can NOT be proven by science doesn’t mean it’s not real.

Love is the most powerful energy in the universe , and even that energy is so powerfully beautiful that it’s hard to put into words.

Science isn’t completely useless …. However when 3D Earth upgrades to 5D Earth …. Yes , then science would be completely uselsss.

I identify with many empaths including ( and probably not limited to ) crystal child adult , indigo , starseed , old soul , lightworker , twin flame , INFP personality type , Transgender Lesbian Woman , Androgynous Femme , Pisces , etc

But I also identify as a Heyoka . A Heyoka is a mirror empath which term is most familiar with the native american spirituality and culture. Yes on my mother side I’m part French Canadian Native American. So wonder I love Dreamcatchers so much. 🙂

Anyway , Heyoka’s spirits are appreciated because they think outside the box , they come from a culture where criticism even if it’s harsh is appreciated with gratitude to help people’s personal and spiritual growth. Heyoka’s are known as the most powerful empath ever and perhaps are known as the satirists and even the “ Anarchists “ of spirituality.

The sacred clown as well.

Pretty sweet eh ?

Well you know how hierarchical society is. It’s a world that needs love but people live in hate and fear. The liberals are very sensitive to intellectualism and trigger warnings aren’t going to help and conservatives live in hate and fear and feel the most comfort in not only fascism but being capitalists ( illuminati ) ruling this world using hate and fear … consciously or unconsciously …. Yeah they need to go to a psychiatric hospital !

So if love is what people need , why won’t they accept it ? Perhaps realism is such an ego shell to protect people from hurt.

If your a lightworker and your doing the best you can to treat them with equality and peace and they just fire off negative stuff at you…. 

You need a good laugh.

Satire can help Anarchism build the new world in the shell of the old , Satire is deep spirituality because I know as a Twin Flame in Ascension working towards Union IT CAN HURT BIG TIME but we learn to get back on the ball of spiritual alignment and become better people going through it … yeah not in The Secret right ? Someone can mention Heyoka on their website but when they are faced with one… They don’t recognize one of their own. https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/07/spiritual-anarchism-anarchism-vs-new.html

But perhaps it’s only funny to those who are awaken to the truth.

It’s like America has Mad Magazine and South Park .

The UK Had Spitting Image , Alternative Comedians ( Rik Mayall and The Young Ones / Hale & Pace / Monty Python’s Flying Circus ) and of course Ian Hislop ( Spitting Image / Have I Got News For You / Private Eye Magazine )

France has Charlie Hedbo and Les Guignols De L’info

Even my satirical works , it can either make someone laugh with me or make someone vomit.

Kind of like that time I had that film screening in Providence RI where someone walked out without asking for a refund.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEEixkzR4bg

This very complication of the best of my work which was technically edited to a PG / PG-13 level still SHOCKED people. This one person was like “ Oooohh That Erica Crooks , how disgusting ! For a Transgender Woman … I expected better from her ! “

The projectionist didn’t bother saying what he thought. Perhaps this guy who wouldn’t bother giving it a compliment pretty much didn’t like it. Ironically it was the same projectionist from my first screening in 2015. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RhjrAvcT8I&list=PLJLbzpbdP5rkwzxjzTVhXiGZyfbOfDh25

When one is a satirist , the big aspect is you want to encourage people to think.

American culture to me is so superficial and philistine. Art museums reactions are all about “ Oooh I like this painting because it’s beautiful . Oooh I don’t like this painting ( and doesn’t bother explaining why )“

I feel in an Anarchist Society , things like this would be appreciated.

Perhaps perceptions of Spirituality if any who reject the idea might find something fascinating in the phenomenon wonder since their lives would be better under Anarchism , perhaps people might me open minded to it more like how Native Americans are about they Heyoka Empath.

If you’ve read my other blog articles as well as seen my blog videos , relating to Spiritual Anarchism … Perhaps at the time I write this , I am a minority ( well that isn’t the first time in my life 😉 )

I have covered MANY subjects regarding the Anarchists vs New Age and New Age vs Anarchists and always try to bring about my Spiritual Anarchist perspective.

One against Spirituality Capitalism

https://www.facebook.com/notes/erica-crooks/spirituality-anarchism-vs-law-of-attraction-capitalism/2094353613998679/

Even a recent one called “ Alternative Anarchist “

https://www.facebook.com/notes/erica-crooks/alternative-anarchist/2127697123997661/

And how about that time when I tried to talk to the cult followers of 5D Earth about Anarchism ( which is better than in5D’s Global Unity Project which the website leader will be an elder soul guru aka New Age Hierarchy Politics ? ) Only to get comments such as HOW DARE YOU BABY EATER !

I literally read the actual comments on this very video. It was intense !

Get your right wing out of my spirituality

And it’s aftermath

And I do have a YouTube playlist of my blog videos about Spiritual Anarchism

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmlJh8fThyE&list=PLJLbzpbdP5rlcxWu5SDhUKO1AuJIP0YCZ

And even a label of all of my Spiritual Anarchist blog articles so far

https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/search/label/Spiritual%20Anarchism

Anyway there does seem to be a polarity , a devision , a VS between Anarchism and Spirituality.

New Agers ( again feel free to see the insults I got such as Baby Eater above ) think Anarchism is the same as all politics for the most part. It’s negative energy , opposition gets more opposition , It’s a lie from the illuminati , it’s the lefties that are negative and always picking on Trump ( record scratch ) yeah that’s what I was complaining about against in5D … again check out the links above.

That’s right , it’s Instant Karma …. Rich people can be good people or bad people.

Well guess what , there’s such a thing as New Age politics and people can be right wing or left wing.

Also this belief that Elder Souls are going to be the hierarchical power ( like I mentioned about in5D’s Global Unity Project ) , Um… I don’t dig that.

So from an Anarchist perspective , you get what I’m getting at. NO Hierarchy even if it is New Age , No New Age Politics NO ! And no capitalizing on spirituality… OK perhaps you can be a worker but still , people can do it themselves. But of course I’m always a sucker who’s gonna cough up some dough because me and my Twin Flame are working on our ascension onto Union.

OK … New Agers are kind of like liberal / centrists , Anarchy is too extreme and think happy thoughts instead.

Now let’s look at what Anarchists have to say. Now most Anarchists for the most part are atheists . There are religious anarchists , there are pacifist anarchists , why not spiritual anarchists ( who are also pacifist ) . Yes folks I am an Alternative Anarchist in that sense .

https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/07/alternative-anarchist.html

Now I have been chatting with a couple of Anarchists lately and I won’t mention any specific usernames . Some might be subscribers of mine which might unsubscribe from me regardless but… lol Anyway , I brought up the subject of Spiritual Anarchism , Law of Attraction , Twin Flames and this is what I got.

Let me just say with politicians running for president like Bernie Sanders ( who is popular among Anarchists and leftists ) , Marianne Williamson ( New Thought / New Age Spirituality ) and Pete Buttigieg ( LGBTQ + and Gay himself )  It just makes it even harder for me to be an Anarchist Satirist . I’m a Transgender Lesbian Woman and a Spiritual Anarchist who’s into New Thought / New Age Spirituality. If I wasn’t an Anarchist , I would probably vote. Marianne Williamson educating people about Law of Attraction to help out 5D Earth which Anarchism would be included ….. Tempting .

But anyway , most Anarchists think Law of Attraction / New Thought & New Age Spirituality and even Twin Flames is crap. ( If My Twin Flame is reading this , we need to get to Union so we can prove them wrong eh ? )

Again I don’t mean to humiliate certain Anarchists who I chatted with , it’s just for educational reasons no offense to anyone. Everyone has the right to their opinion.

OK , again most Anarchists don’t believe in spirituality so therefore…

Such cynical and skeptical notes include but not limited to….

_ Dark Psychic Magic , wrote bestseller new age book and has done nothing in politics. Was on Oprah a bunch of times.

_ Exposing psychic businesses and it seems that they take money and get it off the most vulnerable people . So I’m skeptical about extra sensory experiences and opening your third eye and stuff.

_ Exactly , they prey on people

_ It’s just like astrology or GOD

_ Where they make such general statements that you make apply to yourself

_ Spooks

_ It’s just another method of control

_ They tell things that are obvious

_ ( Like religion ) it’s scares people when they did something bad and makes them terrified that God is going to kill them. F**k , that’s terrifying to be policed in your own mind.

_ Oh God see totes a scam.

_ The New Testament is just a bad fan fiction of a fiction called the Old Testament

_ Law of Attraction by the name sounds like a weird spiritual appropriation of Newton’s Laws lol . F**K Laws !

_ I really don’t know about that S**t Erica .

_ It sounds kind of fake in my opinion

_ Hard same

_ I feel like there’s a difference having like a feeling about someone or w.e. that coincidentally happens to be true maybe but like not straight up telepathy

_ I see s**t every single night and I’m still 100% sure there is no super natural

_ I thought I seen stuff but I was having a psychotic episode

_ Oujia boards having f**king batteries

_ Certain linguistic anthropologists think that religion is a language virus that rewrites pathways into the brain. Dulls critical thinking.

_ Spiritual anything is someone trying to control you and take your power away from you. Telling you it’s elsewhere not your own !

_ I feel like it’s a great way to get people to be passive af . And that’s why so many religious people are just like it’s part of God’s Plan. So I won’t do that s**t .

_ Distracting / leading resources away from real s**t .

_ You didn’t you say the dude who said such things was a cult you had to buy into that is just how your brain works vs some kind of spiritual conspiracy

_ It’s called “ CONFIRMATION BIAS “ , it’s scientifically proven.

_ If it can’t be proven by science then it’s not proven.

_ That’s entirely your choosing to believe that but… That is confirmation bias.

_ It’s you piecing together perceived coincidences and deciding there’s a special connection.

_ I mean tbh I’m a little worried about you considering you spend a lot of $ and were indoctrinated into that cult and even though you aren’t paying into it now they still got you

_ Um please don’t. That brings back past bad trauma.

_ The Illuminati isn’t real.

_ Western rhetoric is harmful

_ I can’t believe this is like a fr conversation right now.

_ Satanism is inherently atheistic. It’s an anti-theist philosophy.

_ Ugh I swear I’m learning I have triggers thru this convo

Ok so I guess it’s time to clear out your chakras , vacuum out that yucky bad karma with the light on you , etc

Don’t want to attract anything negative now.

OK , so what’s my opinion about this.

Well as you already know , I have been very critical of New Thought / New Age Spiritual teachers because most would think that hierarchy is good or we should be thankful . And I don’t know why I just seen some sort of white orb flash up upon my wall facing me upward when I am writing this… anyway

I have been critical of them for rejecting Anarchism. But also defending New Age / New Thought Spirituality as an Anarchist.

A big question to ask is WHY ? Those are valid arguments against Spirituality and everything I have been saying …. Right ?

Well I do feel that “ Realism “ is hierarchical and not everything can be proven by science. That’s like trying to find where emotions come from on the brain. Perhaps you can find something , maybe personality types are formed in life … But what if there was something beyond “ 3D Human Consciousness “ as spiritual people refer to it as.

Law of Attraction says that you attract everything in your life even if your not conscious of certain things,  just follow your heart and intuition.

But if you want the real truth why I just won’t drop this beautiful fantasy which might as well be the religion for INFPs , well it’s simple.

I have a Twin Flame who I have a telepathic romantic relationship with since 2007 . I meet my Twin Flame face to face in late 2015 , early 2016. Yes she is 6 years younger than me. Yes my art which I channel drew predicting what she would look like has some differences as well as visions I had , but there is strong characteristics that are still the same.

Also it was my Twin Flame and even Spirit Guides pointing out “ SHE IS YOUR TWIN FLAME “ when I wasn’t sure if this person who I was STRONGLY attracted to was my twin or not since my Twin Flame did throw me off thinking she was a rockabilly musician from Brooklin. Two names “ Vallery “ and “ Tommy “ came to mind before I meet my Twin who’s name is very similar to the two.

But yes this is no imaginary person , THIS PERSON IS REAL AND MY TWIN FLAME !

https://officialericcrooks.blogspot.com/2019/04/my-twin-flame-part-2.html

The best way to describe my situation is to refer to you a website http://www.twinflames1111.com/blog most of the things on this website is EXACTLY my experience.

And it’s Law of Attraction that’s going to help me and my Twin Flame come together in Union.

And of you think I’m crazy and what I’m saying is still nonsense , well perhaps you won’t be thinking that way once me and my Twin Flame are both together outside telepathy on the internet together somehow. Stay tuned. _ Erica
