i've seen both of those posts and getting deeper into uk drill (and now dipping my toes into the new dancehall) i've thought about them a LOT.
the 32 paths are engraved in the thirty two teeth - language is weaponcraft. drill crafts uniquely elegant weapons - with aerodynamics, precision aim, gloss and sheen.
when poky waxes poetic on "making money on war, invested in more, gold silver and oil" "it's about time we brexit, no more immigrants on our strip - only brown gang on our strip" "better bring that visa, if not don't cross that border" "fuck the feds and nigel farage", he makes himself a warlord on the world stage.
i should qualify what i mean by rejecting john the baptist in favor of jesus and 'gnostics' in favor of the traditions deposited in living faith communities (although that seems to be a counterintuitive move for people like us stepped in whatever's left of a 'counterculture')
the audio on this video is a little fucked. basically, john probably believed in a sacrificial universe, an unpayable debt to HASHEM, mapped illness and wickedness, death and defilement to each other.
pretty much the opposite of what i mean by 'the hermetic church'
rabbinic judaism and christianity (and latter developments) can both offer resources to us corrective of this trend.
our image of john must be of someone holding his severed head in his hands covered in tears as he died - as someone who tried and failed.
our type of christ must also be similar.
the truest type of christ is iyyov
"a serious man" is also a good illustration of what i mean by saying iyyov is the truest messianic type (because it's consciously based on the book of job)
christ is someone who screams "I AM NOT AN EVIL MAN" because he's getting passive-aggressively grilled about his tenure being in question because the university faculty is figuring out he's a homo based on anonymous letters (and being a homo is illegal)
