Punk was relevant for exactly 2 years from 78-80, and during that time they were dressed by people who would go on to be either famous photographers or designers. Today they're basically riveted into a few different traditions that are rigidly defended, ironically enough. Add to that the fact that the whole aesthetic of punk is supposed to be bratty and sloppy and you have a recipe for a mess.

>> No.15449571

i think some guys in this thread have already given great answers. as mentioned above, punk has been co-opted and commercialized to neuter any real threat it could represent today.

punk is about standing up to the system and telling it to go fuck itself. the look is secondary. you need the attitude. not everyone originally had the actual attitude, but ran with the look, just like labeling yourself with an -ist allows you to fall into a clear box without having to put work towards it.
the system (i.e. the cultural zeitgeist) isn't the same as it was back then. on the surface, non-conformity is encouraged. self-expression at almost any cost, individuality, and personal freedom in some aspects are now seen as universal values, and propagated as ideal to aspire to. we are approaching full relativism.

but what are the things that you're not supposed to speak against today? which values are you not supposed to adopt? if you want to "be" punk, those are your targets. if you're uncomfortable with the answer to that question, then the system aligns with you; why go against it?

if you want to "look" punk, really punk, then you can buy the diluted, ingested look of punk which is already being sold to you. that niche has been catered to. or, you can push it to the authentic extreme, and look unfit for society. there are many ways to do that that aren't tainted by the cultural heritage of punk. but it can be done within that tradition as well if you want to push it, because no matter how many documentaries people have seen about how cool stinky beer-and-spit-covered concerts behind chicken feet, there are things that just can't pass.

if you can stomach the projection of the unapproachable in your appearance, then that's a way to internalise the new punk. but the look is just the surface. it's signaling. you can be punk without forcing yourself into a box that we've inherited from several decades ago.

>> No.15449639

While it's true that alot of the aesthetics and *some* if the values represented by early punk are coopted by the mainstream and corporatism now, I don't think that means being "right wing" is punk.
Having blue hair is no longer "punk", but neither is wearing a 3 piece suit as some said.
That's just a cope presented by squares to say "Wow finally I'm the cool rebellious guy"
That being said; It is unironically more rebellious to take care of yourself, and live the best life you can, than to buy into self destructive decadence. That was always a psyops to neutralize rebellious cultures. However deciding to be into self improvement, anti-corporatism, etc. Doesn't mean you have to adopt a particular political ideology. Alot of people on 4chan will say that I'm being a centrist fuck boomer for not taking sides(their side), but they don't actually know my political beliefs; they just can't comprehend me saying that the abstraction of punk rebellion doesn't need to include them. Both the pills were blue pills desu. As for clothes? I think the pinkest way to dress would be to buy utilitarian clothing secondhand. Style and utility don't have to be mutually exclusive, though.

In this context that's false, stuff like punk was more about social side of things than economical. It wasn't capitalism vs communism, it was strict morals vs. let the faggotry run wild.

Neocons are the worst people, because they appeal to a total lack of morals in marketing to make these "free spirits" their whores and profit off it, at the expense of the working class at home that would like to actually protect their own interests. The CEOs don't want that - and neither do these left wing faggots taking the CEO's dick when they say "let in the cheap labor, racist". The only people they're rebelling against are their hard-working countrymen who are usually poorer than their own daddy who buys their band tees and piercing appointments.

I doubt Catholics, if you were to ask them, support molestation of children -- or basically if you ask the majority of people, period.

Wageslaving is what people have to do -- for better or worse. That's the way it be do until you collapse the system -- and maybe even make it worse for them; who knows.

Having both a mother and father figure isn't oppressive.

It's not People being okay with it outside the family, its more it being justified from within.

People feel the pressure to never fuck up their own families dynamic even when it starts to become fucked up, and with media filled with "happy family" imagery it makes it harder to recognize that there could be an alternative or that you can still be a "good person" if you're the own that breaks apart your family like that.
