explanation of the mail hierarchy: for the most part, ts and
i handle the bulk of pa1n related email, however, all three
of the addresses above will make it to the right sources. my
address is always open for any sort of email, but i cannot
handle everything necessarily. if your article is of a purely
news-related nature, it would be best to contact turnspike,
who has the majority of the past six billion events in human
history hardcoded into his brain. anyone feeling adventurous
can submit letters about previous issues to angel ice, but
keep in mind that the really juicy ones might find themselves

"fill the seats of justice with good men,
not so absolute in goodness as to forget
what human frailty is."
the world is full of people that can only think of new ways to throw the same stupid rocks at people who try and build something, and ultimately die having never accomplished something to be proud of. these naysayers are petty
people, they have little to offer the world, and i would very much like to
ignore them and move on. but what happens when one of these individuals does
something that directly impacts on your way of life, and how you see the world?
what happens when one of these nietzchian 'shitheels' tries to destroy the life
you live, but usurping the only things that matter to you? the first response
is one of retaliation. it's only natural. if someone wants to come get some,
then they must realize that they're going to encounter a world of opposition
from not just me, but what i stand for, and who i stand with.
in the time that this issue of pa1n magazine has been in production, there
have been a couple of direct attacks on me, or people who, as i said, i stand
with. to stand with someone is to devote a part of yourself to looking after
that person's wellbeing. i've come to realize in the last few days, that this
isn't as easy as it sounds. in fact, this is unendurably difficult for the most
part, and it's so easy to just look at someone's actions as black and white,
right or wrong. it's also rather self defeating to do this. instead, i've had
to try and see why people do what they do, and i've realized that although i
won't stand for an attack, i cannot but pity these wretches for their lack of
scope and moral developement. to put it a completely different way: fuck them.
they aren't worth being aggravated over.
what is worth all the aggravation, effort, toil and hardship is learning to
put every single thing you have into standing by the people that matter to you,
even when it seems that their actions are so confused, you don't know what
you're standing by. it's actually not so complicated in this sense. what we are
standing by is the knowledge that when we made up our minds that a person was
worth befriending, we accepted that they were not perfect. we accepted every
single aspect of who they were, are, and will be; and therefore, we love them
despite their shortcomings or seemingly hurtful actions.
i cannot stress enough, the older i get, that in this world, it's almost
impossible to find someone with which you connect on a higher level of
awareness; someone so special that you know are actively thinking about them no
matter what you are doing. on this silly little planet, there are billions of
people, and maybe one, if we're lucky, will understand us through and through.
these people will make mistakes, just as you will, just as i have. to punish
someone for being so blatantly human is not just cruel, it's completely
assenine. i don't intend to come off as some scholar or saint, i'm far from
either. i'm just tired of the goddamn apathy that exists in society under every
fucking rock and behind every stone wall and in every crack in the brickwork.
we are surrounded by people who would run their best friends through to get a
leg up in the world, and it's a sickening prospect. in addition, we're
surrounded by these self righteous morons who see no reason in letting a simple
mistake go by. to people who think they are so goddamn perfect that they can
discard a person after they have stumbled; i say fuck you. go away, get out of
my world, get out of our world. this is our world. the community that is
growing like wildfire through rantradio, spfd2600 (in fact, the entire 2600
hacker community), e-lite communications, etc., can no longer stand to tolerate
people who think that they are so special they can disregard the feelings and
overall goodness of someone.
this community i see growing every second of the day will thrive only if we
put our differences aside and recognize positive goals, and understand that we
can reach them together, and that we must work together to see these tasks
through. the only way that humanity will ever evolve is if it stops being so
petty, greedy, and nihlistic. in a word, they must move away from "traditional"
society. tradition can be a great thing, it can also be a terrible, barbaric
concept. in china, footbinding was a normal tradition. such a fantastic fucking
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
