       Regarding feen speak that’s fun and it would be interdasting if it caught on big time. It makes me think of an article I read not long ago about a “calligraphy drive” in China where the government was insisting that people take classes in traditional Chinese calligraphy. The official reason was some claptrap about cultural preservation. The real reason though is that a new language is emerging among young people in China that is a kind of technical shorthand. If memory serves it even uses Chinese characters to say words in English. The big problem with this for the chicoms is that the government there cannot effectively censor this new language. They are basically trying to censor a language that no one really knows how to speak, well how to speak it in a definite fashion.
       As for why billionaires are not all libertarians or anarchists, the whole using the government guns to your own advantage is a good argument. But its not the whole thing, the biggest factor in my opinion is fear of the unwashed masses.
        This is a belief that is hammered into all sorts of people, even the dirt poor, that if the scum of the earth, which makes up 99 percent of the population figures out what is really going on then they will rise up, burn everything to the ground and take all the rich peoples stuff and power. Returning all of humanity to a state something like that of cavemen. Except for the fact that everyone has guns and steel knives. And that the only thing that stops this endless rampage of blood and mayhem is the supremacy of the state. When I lived in Eugene Oregon there was an awful lot of people who anxiously looked forward to the day when something would snap and it’s looting time!
          This is of course a pile of nonsense, and downright racist in a lot of cases, but it is a persistent belief, and an obviously popular myth for those who want to retain control. Heck my dad adamantly believes that homelessness is good for any capitalist economy. No evidence I can provide will convince him otherwise and that’s a major reason why he is a socialist. Which is the theory that if we can just take some of the money of the greedy undeserving capitalist pig dogs and give it to the deserving poor then the poor won’t get mad and burn down civilization. See it’s good for you and good for them, but of course socialism doesn’t work like that in practice, or at all. But that basic idea remains and in my opinion it causes an awful lot of people to worship the state. It’s an idea that defined both communism and fascism, the only real difference being that communism was about bribing the unwashed and killing any who got in your way and fascism was about enslaving them and murdering them. But in either case it doesn’t matter, you are still dead or enslaved.
         Please pardon my harsh language on this but I feel that I must use it get across the sheer stupidity of this thought process, and those who subscribe to it. There are an awful lot of people who advocate this crap, but I find the most entertaining offender to be a fellow named Ted Rall. If you want a giggle have a glance at his absurd anti American manifesto. A call for arms for liberals, please, every liberal I ever met would barely know which end of a gun to hold, and in combat would probably just shoot themselves in the foot, at best. I had a real entertaining dream once that I was training a left wing militia in Oregon once, their equipment was very fancy, but I wouldn’t have trusted any of them to mop a floor.
         And that Larkin Rose is one clever sod eh? I have reached the point that our society was designed to fall apart though.

    You’re welcome and thank you too. I figured the ‘missing’ episode was an ad, a cover-up(Kidding), or a glitch. Just making sure. I’ve told a few people about the cast and I think I got one listening.

  3. MichaelWDean says:

    p.s. tell two friends about the Feens, please!

    good call. There was no episode 29. We did one of our short funny ads between epsidodes 28 and 30 and I didn’t know how I was going to number things. I later decided to just not number non-episodes with anything related to the episodes, they’re their own thing.

    Reminds me, I should ad a category for “Satire” and tag those ads as such. I think they’re still categorized as normal Feens episodes.

  5. ICS says:

    What up, feens? The site is loading fine and I’m enjoying all the content. It’s easy to navigate and if people aren’t interested in the interviews or the user’s manual, they should be and probably will be if they click out of curiosity.

    p.s I can’t find FF episode 29.

    Worms, cats, guns, weed, freedom, liberty, feen for life,

    Wikipedia was a protest against SOPA and PIPA in another way. It was an example of a block that was easily circumvented (in this case by just disabling javascript for the domain or in general temporarily). Its was an example of a censorship implemented in a way that most of the people who wish to would eventually and easily learn to get around.
