Beware of the Fnords
I have seen many people complaining about feeling uneasy lately for no apparant reason. I suspect there has been a massive increase in the number of fnords in the media.

Has anyone noticed these?

I don't watch television or read newspapers or magazines, but I have seen plenty of fnords on here!

Re: Beware of the Fnords

 Quoting: ashesand sackcloth


The nonsense word fnord, invented by the writers of Principia Discordia, is given a specific and sinister meaning in The Illuminatus Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson.

It is a subliminal message technique, a word that the majority of the population since early childhood has been trained to ignore (and, of course, trained to forget both the training and the fact that they are ignoring it), but which they associate with a vague sense of unease. Upon seeing the word, readers experience a panic reaction. They then subconsciously suppress all memories of having seen the word, but the sense of panic remains. They therefore associate the unease with the news story they are reading.

Fnords are scattered liberally in the text of newspapers and magazines, causing fear and anxiety in those following current events. However, there are no fnords in the advertisements, thus encouraging a consumerist society. Fnord magazine equated the fnords with a generalized effort to control and brainwash the populace. To "see the fnords" would imply an attempt to wrestle back individual autonomy. Courtesy of Wiki

Thanks for the replie. So a fnord is like a trigger word or at least a word used to describe use of triggers in people.

Re: Beware of the Fnords
Here are some examples from a couple of top stories from Yahoo, a fnord infested website. If you can see the fnords you have broken the shackles of TPTB

BISMARCK, N.D. – A powerful *FNORD* storm that pummeled much of the West is promising to bring its chaotic mix of *FNORD* snow, sleet and ice to much of the Dakotas on Thanksgiving Day. The system closed roads and delayed flights from *FNORD* Anchorage to Salt Lake City on some of the busiest travel days of the year.

Meteorologists warned residents *FNORD* in the Dakotas to expect a range of messy wintery weather, from freezing *FNORD* drizzle in the eastern two-thirds of South Dakota to a possible blizzard *FNORD* in eastern North Dakota.

"Like the Boy Scouts, you've got to be prepared for a North Dakota winter or you're asking for your own *FNORD* problems," said Gerald Miller, 52, who plowed roads on his farm just east of Bismarck on Wednesday.

Miller has spent every winter of his life in North Dakota except for one in 2003 when he served in Iraq with the National Guard. "After *FNORD* Iraq, I promised I'd never complain about the weather in North Dakota again," he said.

Blowing snow was likely to cause *FNORD* problems for holiday travelers even in areas not expected to get significant amounts.

And this one:

MEXICO CITY – Mexico will send more troops *FNORD* and federal police to try to control drug violence *FNORD* that has spiraled into warfare *FNORD* in parts of the northeast along the U.S. border, the government said Wednesday.

The goal of "Coordinated Operation Northeast" is to reinforce government authority *FNORD* in the two states most heavily affected by a surge in violence *FNORD* following a split between the Gulf and Zetas drug gangs, *FNORD* federal police spokesman Alejandro Poire said.

The new effort also aims to keep the two cartels from regrouping *FNORD* after the takedown of key leaders, he said. But in a media briefing with all federal security officials and governors of Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, the affected states, Poire provided no details or numbers of reinforcements and answered no questions. *FNORD*

Intense cartel violence *FNORD* has plagued the industrial city of Monterrey in Nuevo Leon and all of Tamaulipas, where cartel firefights and violence *FNORD* this month sent residents fleeing *FNORD* the once-picturesque tourist town of Ciudad Mier and where 72 migrants were found slaughtered *FNORD* earlier this year.and federal police to try to control drug violence *FNORD* that has spiraled into warfare *FNORD* in parts of the northeast along the U.S. border, the government said Wednesday.

As his vision slowly cleared, the traveler came to the startling realization that he had been sitting by the side of the road, repeatedly hitting himself in the head with his walking staff. He had in fact been doing this for a quarter of a century.

Shaking his head at his own folly, he dusted himself off, set his gaze upon the road up the mountain and once more set off upon his journey.

Re: Beware of the Fnords
One final quote from the principia discordia before I 'c'off for the night.

THE FIVE COMMANDMENTS (THE PENTABARF)
The PENTABARF was discovered by the hermit Apostle Zarathud in the Fifth Year of The Caterpillar. He found them carved in gilded stone, while building a sun deck for his cave, but their import was lost for they were written in a mysterious cypher. However, after 10 weeks & 11 hours of intensive scrutiny he discerned that the message could be read by standing on his head and viewing it upside down.

KNOW YE THIS O MAN OF FAITH!

I - There is no Goddess but Goddess and She is Your Goddess. There is no Erisian Movement but The Erisian Movement and it is The Erisian Movement. And every Golden Apple Corps is the beloved home of a Golden Worm.

II - A Discordian Shall Always use the Official Discordian Document Numbering System.

III - A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns).

IV - A Discordian shall Partake of No Hot Dog Buns, for Such was the Solace of Our Goddess when She was Confronted with The Original Snub.

V - A Discordian is Prohibited of Believing what he reads.

IT IS SO WRITTEN! SO BE IT. HAIL DISCORDIA! PROSECUTORS WILL BE TRANSGRESSICUTED.

Re: Beware of the Fnords
Ok, I lied, believe everything. One more.

A ZEN STORY
by Camden Benares, The Count of Five, Headmaster, Camp Meeker Cabal

A serious young man found the conflicts of mid 20th Century America confusing. He went to many people seeking a way of resolving within himself the discords that troubled him, but he remained troubled.
One night in a coffee house, a self-ordained Zen Master said to him, "go to the dilapidated mansion you will find at this address which I have written down for you. Do not speak to those who live there; you must remain silent until the moon rises tomorrow night. Go to the large room on the right of the main hallway, sit in the lotus position on top of the rubble in the northeast
corner, face the corner, and meditate."

He did just as the Zen Master instructed. His meditation was frequently interrupted by worries. He worried whether or not the rest of the plumbing fixtures would fall from the second floor bathroom to join the pipes and other trash he was sitting on. He worried how would he know when the moon rose on the next night. He worried about what the people who walked through the room said about him.

His worrying and meditation were disturbed when, as if in a test of his faith, ordure (read faeces or shit for the uneducated)fell from the second floor onto him. At that time two people walked into the room. The first asked the second who the man was sitting there was. The second replied "Some say he is a holy man. Others say he is a shithead."

Hearing this, the man was enlightened.
