Let There Be Retards

If your reaction to any bit of the article is not horror, disgust, and anger, then you might not be included in the 144,000 that get to go Home early. One chuckle and your seat at the never ending all-you-can-eat boiling diarrhea banquet below is assured.

A few observations.

Social darwinism, clearly, is just fine. It fits right in to the post hoc ergo propter hoc conception of tradition.

Authority freaking cuts off any ability to perceive hoaxing and guarantees a corruptible, easily exploitable structure.

I really wish the Beast hadn't made disability part of the spectacle. The issue at hand is civic morality, which even the severely retarded can manage, often better than their nominally more "evolved" fellows.

I agree. Those guys are very much like my old posse on majenta but we had an absurdity in place of some of the blatant knee-capping. It left me wishing I’d written the piece too b/c I like them but they’re coming off flat. They’re either drinking too much or bored with it.

I think you've got it with the bored angle. Creating spectacle to illuminate spectacle does get boring. I know where their hearts are -- in the right place. It's an uphill battle, though, against the sheer profusion of shock and the steady resistance to it built up by overexposure.

I couldn't get past the 2nd paragraph - wordy and too many adverbs; however, I think I got the gist of it. As Ashley noted in a comment, there are better ways to to mock the ridiculous.

Awww... I liked it.

"Unencumbered by reason and logic, their minds drowned with sweet ignorance and incredible fairytales, they were the true freaks. You have to admire that sort of commitment to delusion. I let a strategic pool of saliva slowly dribble from my gapping maw. I wanted to fit in."
