Anti-Capitalist Consumer

Anti-Capitalist Consumer


Erica Crooks

For more info on consumerism and Anarchism , I recommend this link.

In this blog post I’ll be talking about what I would consider the differences between healthy consumerism ( Buying things that mean something to ourselves deeply and moderately ) and

Obsessive , Impulsive consumerism due to some sort of fear that develops into mental illness.

And how this relates to my views as an Anti-capitalist left wing anarchist as well as a pop culture entertainment art fan. As well as mentioning my view on Comic Con a little bit.

I don’t know why I decided to write this blog subject but perhaps it’s because

I love pop culture. And when your an American who had a 1990s childhood and perhaps similar in other generations I suppose , you are used to the capitalist world of consumerism.

As an Anarcho-Communist ( Libertarian Socialist Anarchist ) I have reasons of hating capitalism. There’s the class war which people kill themselves over having the choice between a meaningless lousy job or dying on the street . If you were diagnosed with something you can receive SSI benefits and that tends to be political usually a bunch of right wing and American versos of Libertarian would hate you for it , just bitching about taxes and how they even though they can agree with you that perhaps you regarding what neurologists think of you , they would HATE you for it. Personal experience folks . I have my own politics regarding to a theory that people who are intuitive when it comes to personality type and perhaps perceivers as well are most likely to be diagnosed with something. Benefits is a positive side , a negative side is that it’s not really money from The Government but from the working class.

I’m sure people would feel better if I would just accept my diagnoses of Asperger’s Syndrome but I won’t !

First off , I was diagnosed as a kid and even diagnosed at age 30. My mother thinks I’m high functioning , I think there’s a conspiracy between minorities being diagnosed.

Even Libertarian Socialist Rants have addressed similar issues .

So when it comes to welfare / SSI related political issues , I go which what Anarchists point out.

Because if people say NO and it was taken away , sure people can enjoy extra cash in their pocket where many people , especially minorities can’t find employment is most likely than not to die on the street !

As an Anarchist , this points out clearly that capitalism does not work !

And this isn’t the only chains that slave the working class but capitalism itself.

The other reason why I’m against capitalism relates to how I got into satire in the first place which relates to my interest in pop culture.

This would explain my satirical obsession to satirize bad television which is in a sense what The Erica Crooks Show’s format is partly about or at least that’s how the show started out.

When I started performing live puppet shows from 1999 – 2005 ,

The show was more in a Muppet Show kind of format where the characters were bad performers .

When I did public access television from 2006 – 2009 , I was doing things alternatively.

I filmed out of my own bedroom and then the basement , never using the studio they had because of the limitations of 2 hours filming time.

So it was really and truly independent film.

I still remember being in high school and slowly realizing that there was less and less good stuff on television for me and the commercials where getting more annoying , obnoxious , and the new tv shows were becoming more crass products then something ground breaking like I remember in the 1990s. So technically when I moved into my first apartment in 2010 ,

I decided NOT to get cable television. But also I very well understand the fact about myself

That I can not live without the internet access !

As a pop culture fan , I do love how there was toys and action figure membrobillia based on my favorite characters , but at the same time the real purpose was income.

If it was capitalists or even struggling artist companies like The Jim Henson Company.

I wish I could find a simple video clip from Henson’s Place but I’ll just have to describe it.

First of all Jim Henson had strong opinions regarding not merchandising his characters .

He experimented with it in the early days but even when he did , during his life time , he would check the quality of any toy relating to his characters , especially Sesame Street.

Jim Henson was against crass products. But as of 1984 , he sort of had to be more flexible against his will because his company was pretty much had money issues.

Sesame Street merchandise is pretty much what saved The Muppets as a company.

In the 1984 documentary Henson’s Place , Jim talks about the logic aspects of serving the needs of the audience as well as having the income go back into the productions.

“We’re living in the real world here. It would be nice if we could do without it but unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case.”

Jim Henson passed away in 1990 due to stress of the Disney Deal ( in my opinion ).

Jim Henson would have absolutely LOVED the internet and would probably use Kickstarter and Patreon like most artists today !

For me , I’m very selective when it comes to what collectibles I want to own and not get out of hand like many pop culture collectors out there.

I look for quality .

I admire a toy in this sense as a work of art within itself. It was made as sort of a sculpture which people can actually admire and own in their very own home !

That’s what I like . Because whatever happens in my life , I can have something like this looking back to me and bringing a smile on my face as it has always done in childhood.

That’s the thing about fans. This is culture. It means something to us !

I’ve addressed similar opinions within a blog article I did last year relating to an idea of “ An Anti-Capitalist Comic Con “

Print shop websites such as Zazzle has a similar feel when it comes to Consuming.

But what’s great as well as living in an age of 3D printing is that it’s something that can be printed ON DEMAND !

Same with CreateSpace and digital media.

It’s available for those who want it.

Unfortunately, what’s really sad is just how easy it truly is for someone to go to jail.

And that’s just the so called “ Free Countries “ !

Say if I wanted to lie to the police about someone I did not like very much and get them into trouble . What no one knows can’t hurt them right ?

Well my conscious and soul can not handle such Ego and anti-humanitarian acts of anti-social crime such as that.

Or in this case. Say I was a capitalist bastard who seen a fan of my work

And they wanted to buy some fan art or make it themselves with Zazzle or something.

Or they saved my youtube videos and made a DVD for themselves and their friends.

And since I have more money than this fan. I sue them , the poor innocent fan doesn’t have the money to pay the copyright violations and they go to jail.

Again , I won’t have the heart to do something like that.

One of the things I love about Anarchism ,

Is that Anarchists are all for the good of human kind and Earth Kind.

In an Anarchist Society , nothing will ever go “ Out of Print “ !

Everything will be counterfeited professionally to the point where counterfeiting no longer exists.

Who knows what Anarcho-Transhumanism could bring.

Science could give everyone their own mansion in a hologram where homes can change in size , shape , color , etc !

But also in an anarchist society , perhaps people won’t be as security worry warts.

Perhaps people would be more flexible when it comes to possessions , even knowing that thanks to Anarcho-Communism , if they need something , they can get it any time they want , no worries , no limitations like what capitalism does to people.

But one thing I will say is this.

I am an introvert. But it doesn’t mean I’m a hermit.

For me , I like to make my home , my home where ever I live.

I want it to feel like home, I like to own things. Even if it’s a book or movie I didn’t see in over a year. I know it’s there. I can see the title. Perhaps I like to look at that title and read it and smile at my favorite moments and say , “ Hey , I got time. “ and then I check it out reliving the memories.

My father was not only an abusive heartless bastard but also an obsessive consumer.

I have different views when it comes to consuming.

I may own a lot of stuff , but I’m extremely picky when it comes to things I want to own.

Pretty much any possessions I have , I use.

And if I lose electricity or the internet , I have something as a backup to keep me and even company entertained. 🙂

I think one of the things that educated me about consuming was something that Rocko’s Modern Life creator Joe Murray recommends when is something called “ The Story of Stuff “

It is liberal but Anarchists do share similar views. We just don’t think hierarchy is justified.

But anyway , I enjoy and get use of my libraries. 🙂

In fact , this week I have filmed some videos showing off my libraries which includes things that influence me as an artist in my field of work which I’d like to share with everyone really soon.

It’ll be related to my upcoming pop culture related blog videos .

Quit Capitalizing on my Spirituality !

Anti-New Age Capitalism

If someone teaches Twin Flames or Law of Attraction ,
it’s interesting how defensive some of these capitalists get when they tell people to stay away from all the other teachers and do not listen to other people on the internet. So much for community building eh ? Perhaps it’s time to question the teacher teaching. Are they really a Lightworker ? Twin Flame ? Do they believe in New Thought / New Age Spirituality at all ? Or do they believe in Jack Canfield . Bob Proctor and the rest of the New Age Capitalists way of selling it ?

Not all New Age spiritual people are statist and capitalist and centrist !
For example

How do you get to union with your Twin Flame ?
Law of Attraction because both have the same energy !

Now there’s teachers that are going to raise the question and sell you the answer wording it into puzzles which each puzzle piece cost $500 or more !

Is that spiritual ? I don’t think so ! Time for Spiritual Anarchism !

Thumbs Down Culture

Thumbs Down , This Sucks , So Unhappy

I’d like to talk about this “ Thumbs Down “ culture.

Or perhaps dare I say it the “ Me , Myself & I “ culture. And what I mean by that is more on the lines of narcissism and self centeredness appose to say people having a healthy non-ego focused self esteem love for their self and individuality.

One of my favorite episodes of the satirical puppet show “ Dinosaurs “ did an episode slamming Government and State ,

In the episode the Sinclair men ( ironically ) were sent to the Counsel of Elders to be punished for asking questions relating to “ What is the meaning of life ? “ . After passing a Jesus Christ type Dinosaur , he gets passed because Earl finds his philosophical message complicated and Baby hates him because he “ DOESN’T HAVE A HAT ! “

Then the Government decides to answer The Meaning of Life by throwing out easy answers as an excuse for POWER over OTHERS !

See why this is one of my all time favorite satires of all time. 😉 lol

This very political satire can relate to day’s world 20 years later.

But I’m not talking about the subject or religion.

I’m taking about right wing idiots who have nothing else better to do but continue to be brainwashed by lies that dominate their life and pick on people that differ from them because in their mind , they seem inferior .

Yes I do bring up my book Adults Get Bullied Too !

I might as well write a sequel because this kind of evil doesn’t end with low lives picking on people who are happy.

And it doesn’t even end at Trump , Fox News , 4Chan / 8Chan , etc

It’s most certainly an epidemic of FEAR !

We can ignore them , but Karma is going to kick them where it hurts one way or another !

Perhaps in a sense , is tough love.

Perhaps a question is just how do we all keep up our forgiveness to people

Who need the most love but deserve it the least ?

Perhaps if we see everyone as children , not as adults.

We can pin-point those who had abusive horror parents , and those who have had the most damage perhaps end up either the most depressed or the most aggressive.

Anarchists know this hierarchical system sides with them.

These bullies know they can get away with it.

But instead of taking a break , they continue to hurt innocent people.

And ANTIFA get the blame .

The Left get blamed by the Right all the time , especially when it comes to New World Order Conspiracy Theories.

Someday Love will conquer hate and fear.

Why can’t we all give peace a chance ?

As I stated before I’m sure , the internet can be used in a force for good.

But because of the FCC , because of Capitalism ,

In no means do they care about public opinion , but those who have been successfully been brainwashed by hierarchy to obey.

For example , see a Social Justice Warrior then boo them for being idiots complaining over nothing which is nonsense. And people think more nationalistically and not globally.

We can’t keep thinking that non-Americans are evil , especially in the middle east and in countries that are more totalitarian in it’s hierarchical structure.

In any given moment , the Government can go ahead and do it.

But there’s a reason why so called evil people haven’t devoured the Earth like a giant snake ,


These bullies are going to continue picking on those they think is vulnerable.

They are going to continue their gaslighting and power over them.

They are going to play nice to get people they find vulnerable on their side.

Those who seek power feel powerless and are incapable of gaining wisdom and love from within.

I’ve came a long way since 2009 to the point where It really surprises even ME !

I could have taken my life if I didn’t continue living with my authoritarian father and kept believing ex-friends of mine were my friends and not these cyberbullies that go around saying that I’m some sort of religious terrorist.

I cave into that fear years ago. I said patriotic stuff about being a proud American because I was still in liberal mode at the time. Or perhaps a closet liberal since of course my Father and his equally wicked wife who screwed him out of his money for a house and threw him out I believe.

But to say that vulnerable people are bad and deserve to have their butt kicked is a very self serving , sick , demented , sadistic thought of selfishness. That’s like someone decided to urinate on the homeless , be a killjoy of someone’s happiness , abusing animals and innocent people , etc .

Of course bullies hate love !

As Kryptonite is the weakness of Superman , Love is to those who can’t Love .

Perhaps they don’t trust it. Perhaps they think it should be stomped out !

Hell isn’t just an afterlife in a soul collective sense which people can channel through black magic , but it’s happening right now.

But same with Heaven as well.

Love is a stronger vibrational energy than hate and fear.

Love can take many forms. Even Satire and Anarchism.

Just because someone gets arrested , has an FBI file , the CIA is after them and the cops beat them , doesn’t necessarily mean they are evil.

Personally I find Conservatives a bore !

And liberalism sort of bland like a dollar store knock off of your favorite treats.

It’s something for now but it does not get your fill and get the job done.

And right wing Libertarianism having your favorite drink but saying too bad when you can’t afford it at the price of a car and a house !

I’ve learned this lesson in 2010 – 2013 .

It doesn’t matter how quiet and peaceful you seem offline.


They are looking for a fight.

But nothing says “ checkmate “ like intelligence and love

Because the right hate that stuff !

Especially those of middle age who cyberbully and troll innocent people.

The lefties have got your back my like minded friends , you are not alone.

Finally I’d like to say something about Anarchism and Building the new world in the shell of the old.

When someone has something to say , perhaps people should take a listen.

If it’s fascism , forget it. lol

But as an Anarchist , I feel that it’s rather important for people to talk about ideas , share ideas ,

And let me just say…. IS A THUMBS DOWN AN IDEA OR AN OPINION ?

It’s like if that one person is unhappy and they don’t say why , just troll ,

Why does that one opinion matter over everyone else’s ?

What I’m trying to say is , an individual knows themself more than anyone else.

Anarchists and New Agers alike know this.

Philosophy and the greatest wisdom known knows this.

But why this “ Thumbs Down “ culture of “ If I’m not happy , no one should be. “ justified ?

Sure people have the right to their opinion but how interesting that Leftists get the blame for being the Identity Politics , Social Justice Warrior , Special Snowflake , Butt-hurt Crybabies probably because that’s the job of the Right eh ?

And doesn’t the Right hate ROBIN HOOD OR WHAT ?

They put a suit and gave Jesus Christ a haircut perception within how they preach the Bible instead of what Jesus Christ truly is which is a left wing liberating philosopher which isn’t a bad thing.

If you want the duality of Good vs Evil to make sense , you might as well look at it from a Fear vs Love sense which is in Spiritual Terms Ego vs Soul.

You can’t escape the power of love.

Sometimes pain and hurt from love is a good thing because it’s healing the wounds from the past.

That’s what shadow work DOES !

You will break down in tears seeing beauty.

You will surrender to love or die due to the illnesses of anger & fear.

Popularity : When Quality & Truth isn’t Viral

Popularity : When Quality & Truth isn’t Viral

It’s amazing that ever since my Kundalini / Spiritual Awakening in spring 2016 when I meet my Twin Flame face to face even though we are still in Twin Flame Ascension working towards Twin Flame Union ,

One thing spirit kept reminding me of that most New Thought / New Age Spiritual teachers and gurus won’t admit is “ Negative Energy is thoughts that make you feel bad , not the subject because the perception of a subject depends on the reaction of the individual not the subject itself. “

Also Satire and Anarchism isn’t bad Karma within itself.

There’s a common set of traits when it comes to going viral on the internet , like business articles and such will tell you , a lot of it is very basic “ Quality , Be Human , Bring about something original , etc “

So why isn’t the MBTI ( Myers Briggs Personality Test included into this discussion ? )

Perhaps there’s some personality types that are Born This Way where others develop due to say society / authoritarian upbringing.

So does that mean types like INFP is pure ?

I’ve noticed an interesting pattern when it comes to today’s mainstream entertainment and types such as ESFP and perhaps even ESTP .

Is this related to a sensor majority world ?

Or does hierarchy take advantage of sensors for being the majority ?

Is it all a part of the mainstream media or what ?

Or is this related to personality type alone ?

The point I want to make here is this.

First why do you want to be popular , why do you want to be famous ?

Sometimes people have fame and fortunate hand and hand.

Some only take the fortune like the bastards who rule over us ,

Some want the fame.

But is the fame to boost someone’s Ego ?

OR is fame a tool to help benefit the good of world ?

There’s nothing wrong with positive content.

But the problem with liberal ideology is it’s about “ Thinking positive of hierarchy “.

As one who practices New Thought / New Age Spirituality , I get that .

But sometimes liberalism takes it too far being pro capitalism ,

And interferes with TRUE teachings of The Secret “ Law of Attraction “ .

Saying that anything that isn’t happy will manifest back to you.

But what if Horror Movies makes you happy ?

Then you got them by the crotch at that point.

Because the ruling class can use law of attraction for their benefit.

Terrorists can kill innocent people and be ok themselves because they feel good hurting innocent people , no skin of their back.

Their Ego is so solid that no spiritual awakening can pass through their stubbornness of cruelty. Unless , something triggers them emotionally.

Hurt people , hurt people.

One thought I had on my mind this morning is ,

In 2012 – 2014

I seen Bob Proctor as a genius .

When you have a wealthy mindset and your an artist ,

By Law of Attraction , you can take on this darn world.

In 2017 ,

I feel bad for Bob Proctor.

If he realized that capitalism is crap ,

He can still teach the same thing but using

Anarcho-Communism with Law of Attraction

And Innovated wisdom instead.

But what makes something popular ?

It really depends on personality type.


Hierarchy has brainwashed people into accepting the status quo.

Labels like “ REAL WORLD “ has one people.

That’s why people would rather watch people falling down on their butt and go boom then learning that Soul is more powerful than the Fear driven Karma known as Hierarchy.
