Make Purging Great Again Started by: Wood on Aug 11, '20 00:57
Come at you? I think you are now misreading I merely stated why they didn't need to provide answers many wanted and then just asked a couple of questions to try and start a positive conversation to debate. I didn't twist anything of what you said so please don't start manstrating all over me. I thought you'd maybe just get into a conversation not get bitchy.

Curtis listened to the young woman make her points.

"mahihkan, thank you for your contribution. You make some good points. Just a note on the difference between my grandfather's regime and this one.

When Disorder was alive, they were permitted to do a lot more things than we are now. They were allowed to ask people who they were before being taken into the inner family. By doing this they were able get an honest foundation between crew leader and initiate.

They were also allowed to collect witness statements in way that is no longer possible. By doing that they were able to roughly track who was becoming a threat and who really wasn't. There were numerous things that were possible then that have since been made impossible or illegal, that enabled a crew leader to establish much more clearly if they could trust a person or not. They could make a very calculated guess about whether someone was a potent threat or could be happily trusted to live a long and loyal life in a family. They were the salad days.

Unfortunately the world now is a different place. We are unable to ask anyone who they are and we are unable to track anyone's murderous activities. Therefore all levels of humanitarian decision making has been forced out the window. I'm afraid all we can do now is look at what is possible and assume everyone is potentially the worst kind of person. Therefore the decisions on who lives and dies have lost any level of discerning compassion and have been forced to become utterly emotionless and ruthless."

He took out his grandfather's hip flask and had a swig before continuing.

"This brings me round to the definitions of purging and bloodlining. 

Purging is the act of killing a person based on nothing other than their age. You take the age in which it is possible (not common or even likely, just possible) to develop a capped gun, then you kill anyone you can not identify before that age. Without emotion, or understanding, or even feeling. You have to know a target to have feeling for it. The rules removed all that. So anyway, that is purging defined. Emotionless, cold mathematical problem solving. 

Bloodlining on the other hand is something entirely different. Bloodlinging is the act of having an issue with a particular person's lineage and deciding to kill their descendants as soon as they are identified. Again and again and again, until the entire family bloodline eventually gives up all hope and leaves these shores forever to live, unmolested in the old country. It is a brutal and sadistic act that allows absolutely no room for redemption, change, growth, evolution or any other cherished human trait. it is a horrible act and one (thankfully) that is almost never seen.

The two things are very distinct and different.

I hope this helps."

Curtis I appreciate you coming and setting some history down. I understand the differences, I had no intention of appearing like I did not and  it is quite apparent I should have been more descriptive on my explanation.  I only mentioned the older regime because others are comparing this one to that one, as well as  that particular regime is accused of harshly purging people. 

 

 

 

I think my post was mistakenly misunderstood. Which is partly my fault for not communicating in a way that all could comprehend. This task is actually daunting in an open speaking environment like this one as you can not talk to many people in the same manner. You have to talk to individuates in a way they comprehend. 

 

My point is this behavior is natural and that every regime in the history of this game has done so to some degree, so why are  we condemning a practice and a particular group for doing what is natural behavior that all regimes have exhibited to some degree.

 

Maybe this  will help some understand what I am saying. 

Jesus once said he who has not sinned may cast the first stone. 

This means everyone has practiced "purging". It is a natural occurrence in this society.  It is animal behavior and humans are animals so we behave like animals.  

 I suppose my post would have been more accepted if I  had chosen a side . That purging is bad or purging is okay. 

 It is neither actually.

It is just the nature of this thing.

what do I have to do to make one of these lists?

Curtis puts a friendly hand on Zeb's shoulder.

"Like any dream Zeb, it's a lot of hard work and travel. There is all manner of challenges you must conquer before you can be selected.. And cake, there must always be cake. Few beers maybe but there can be no progression without cake.

Then my friend, you never know. If you're a very lucky mobster, we may wipe you out for very obvious reasons. And in so doing, afford you the (seemingly) very desirable position, of being able to have your kin return and claim all kinds of innocence, injustice and every other righteous indignation you care to explore.

It's a wonderful gift but as I say, only open to a very select few who really put in the effort."

"You've made a great case for yourself so far Zebedee, there's no denying that. But this is a special thing we're talking about here. I mean, it's a really big deal, man!"

Curtis takes out a stick of Blackpool rock and hands it to his friend. Putting one arm around his shoulder, he gazes into the distance and waves the other hand slowly across the sky.

"If you keep going the way you are, there's a chance I may come and shoot you myself. You never know your luck. It's a total shot in the dark, normally. But for you, with all your ambition and eagerness, the sky really is the limit."

While there may be people on the aforementioned list who had malicious intent, there are many obvious ones that anyone with a brain would know wouldn't act out of line. It is clear that you execute using your statistics and figures rather than primarily good detective work. You minimize people down to a number. See how far that goes for doing good for the community. But as I've said elsewhere, no harm, no foul. This is your version of self-preservation.

What I do find funny is that you have a habit of viciously blaming others when you don't get your way, like a wee posh spoiled child. When you get set back, you rage like "the Clank 2.0" those close to you know you are. That madness does not serve you well. People are not your tools to throw in the drawer angry after you hammer your thumb by accident.

The people, who allow this Egyptian Pharaoh-like Genocide to continue that do not benefit from your "cleansing," only hurt themselves. You are not forever, and your existence, as the 1% (which it would seem people are hoping to fall on you), is an affront to the 99% of the community, whether they are going along with it in fear, naiveté, or not.

Curtis sighs and shakes his head.

“So far you have defined me as frail, wee, posh, spoiled and a child. Anyone that actually knows me can tell you, this list of characteristics is the polar opposite of me. I’m every way. You clearly know me so well. 

Also, the issue with increasingly divorced forms of control is entirely a byproduct of an increasingly restrictive systemic issue. The more the system restricts our ability to gather information, the more we are forced to make binary decisions based only on what is possible and the fact we aren’t allowed to ask anyone who they are. If you look at it the approach the current leaders are taking is inevitable, for any group wishing to maintain control for more than a couple of months.

Also this insistence that I am somehow a controlling voice in our leadership, is as funny as it is wrong. I have a voice, certainly but is just one of a number. My grandfather suffered from the same public misconception. But hey, if that basic lie quenches your thirst for controversy, drink it in kid.”

Curtis, I comment on private reviews and transcripts I have seen of your raging. We all have seen the evidence of your ancestry's end and its unfettered and wild rage. This is founded, but I appreciate you trying to tone it down here in a civil fashion. 

In your reply, unlike Grin-08, you validate part of my argument. I agree with you on why you have to make binary decisions for survival. This is why I have continually said no harm no foul. I do believe in killing those that want to kill my interests. I do believe that bloodlines' interests transcend down lineage in some select cases.

That said, the changes you discuss are due to the abuses of your ancestry, such as the use of invalid witness statements to bolster up various bloodlines you guys disliked, and the ancestry of Cohle going out of his way to harass bloodlines. I know you can blame this on your other partners back then. However, now that you've become more binary in your executions than bloodline-y, being partially-non-discriminatory, it has resulted in you driving even innocents away and alienating much of the community. I find this tactic of being purely binary as relatively lazy, and widely injurious. 

The main point of my argument is that the binary executions are at the behest of a very small collective, interested in survival. In the process, your executions shame those under you. The systematic executions are for the benefit of that small collective, and they have to eat the cost. Personally, I would not put my allies through this to benefit myself, not any way to this extreme or what you may call efficiency. Your culling is non-selective. You can kill everyone, and be relatively safe, but you will be alone, and that is not why we are here. 

I will share the following for the public to understand part of what I described in history. Perhaps some people can look to their books, and see some inconsistencies in these "estimates."

Now Trump2020 lets out a long sigh

 

Curtis, I have witnessed your lineage for years. Early on, right before my time, you were well respected.  Not long after my lineage arrived on these shores you played the role of being butt sore. I can relate. It happens. You are within your right/role to come spew lies because you are a hard core mobster. 

A hard core mobster would not feel the need to question an outstanding asset until given a reason.  But I suppose when paranoia runs in the blood, explains why and what you are about these days. 

Final thought. You killed an asset to this thing of ours.

You would have thought the private reviews you have claim to have obtained would noted the Clank 2.0 comment wasn't made about Curtis. An easy mistake to make though when you don't know what is actually going on and have to trust every little desperate whiff of the winners table you catch a scent of. Rather like dropping a 3 year old list to back up a mistaken point of view, which isn't even the real data that was used by those in charge. You should probably stop trying to seem "in the know" at this point, it is getting quite embarrassing to watch.
