Homework – Mythologies Essays

I must admit that It was quite an interesting experience interpreting the encryption of insights within the four essays assigned. I however, really enjoyed the difference in expression and communication of ideas. Indeed they were as a treat to be interrogated relentlessly by the tongue and then swallowed whole.

The World of Wrestling

SPORT = FAIR

SPECTACLE = UNFAIR / EXCESS / PASSION / NO CONTROL / DISORDER

  • Wrestling is an intelligible spectacle, not a sadistic one
  • The crowd wishes for the perfect superficial display of pain and suffering, not their real existence
  • In the forearm smash, catastrophe is brought to point of maximum obviousness
  • The crowd wishes for an excess of realism, maybe to escape reality and witness the true heights of emotion & passion
  • Defeat takes up the ancient myths of public suffering and humiliation
  • Wrestling is meant to display justice, revenge, PAYBACK overall
  • The crowd is jubilant at seeing the rules broken for the sake of a deserved punishment
  • Wrestling is a quantitative sequence of compensations
  • Fairness is a genre
  • A fair fight is a controlled fight, passions are not allowed to inundate the participants
  • Evil is the normal climate of wrestling. A fair fight is truly exceptional–suprising the aficionado

Soap Powders & Detergents

  • The relations between the evil and the cure, between dirt and a given product, are very different in each case
  • Chlorinated fluids have always been experienced as a sort of liquid fire: the product kills the dirt
  • Powders on the other hand liberate the object from dirt: their function is keeping public order and not making war
  • What matters is the art of having disguised the abrasive function of the deteregent under the delicious image of a substance such as foam.
  • A lesson to gather from this essay is that of the need to understand competing products may be born of the same business

Steak & Chips

  • the very raw & natural state of steak partakes unto the victor a very real sense of pure dominance
  • steak seems the very flesh of the French soldier
  • chips are the sign of Frenchness


Strip Tease

fsda

  • women are seen as a categoy of luxurious objects which surround man with a magical decor, they are romanticized and legendary
  • it is a self-evident law that the whole of striptease is given in the very nature of the initial garment
  • a strippers dance is the alibi for the crime of nudity, and as some might have you believe: impurity.
  • Many justify the condemnation of striptease and sex as a household property, to be had only in the presence of a luxurious wedding ring
  • to wear clothes is to justify & enforce the unenportance of the flesh and appendages (the body)

Critical Thinking Insights

What is the purpose of law but if not to justify the act of punishment or sin against another

the powers that be, setup a system of control so powerful, it’s wonder hidden to all but a few, and for some odd reason, it is those few that hider the liberation of their kind……The Perfect Tyranny
