–– English Below ––

Minggu lalu, Society muncul ke hadapan Nicola dan Simbi dan mengajak mereka untuk menjadi Shaman. Society perlu untuk menyingkir dari identitas Kapitalistnya agar dapat mulai melakukan penyembuhan. Kematian shamanic merupakan kematian simbolik dari permulaan (Society); dari gaya hidup kuno dan identitas personal (Kapitalisme). Kematian Shaman meliputi uji…an brutal kekuatan fisik, kemampuan fisik, dan tekanan kuat pada setiap ‘tombol’ emosi. Nicola dan Simbi mengidentifikasikan manipulasi-manipulasi psychedelic Kapitalisme terhadap masyarakat sebagai kontrol dan menimbulkan kegilaan ringan (paranoia). Menolak Paranoia! Kami telah menemukan ritual-ritual untuk menghina dan menyiksa, agar Kapitalime benar-benar gila (Schizophrenic).

Ritual kami membongkar semua bentuk-bentuk konsep “diri” kapitalis, kami menghina dan meludahi kapitalisme. Dirimu adalah masyarakat dan kamu bisa bergabung. Kami berjalan di sekelilingmu dengan sepatu hak tinggi. Kami melakukan Yoga dengan Death Metal. Kami meneriakan ritual kematian panjang untuk Kapitalisme. Kami sesak dan menguburmu sehingga hanya suara sampah yang terdengar olehmu. Kami memainkan tantangan fisik dan gamelan bersamamu, membunyikan Kenong dan Ketuk di sekeliling kepalamu dan berayun di langit-langit. Singkirkan dirimu dari identitas kapitalis kunomu! Datang ke JNM, tanggal 24 Juni ini!

Last week, Society appeared to Nicola and Simbi and asked to become a Shaman. Society needs to rid itself of its old Capitalist identity in order for it to start healing. Shamanic death is the symbolic death of the initiate (Society), to the old ways of life and personal identity (Capitalism). Shamanic death entails brutal tests of physical strength, psychic ability and having every emotional “button” pushed hard. Nicola and Simbi have identified Capitalism’s psychedelic manipulations of society that control and limit madness (Paranoia). No more Paranoia. We have devised rituals to taunt and torture, to make Capitalism truly Mad (Schizophrenic).

Our rituals break down all former notions of the capitalist “self,” We taunt and spit on capitalism. You are society and you can join in. We walk all over you with our high heel stilettos. We do yoga to death metal. We scream long death rites for Capitalism. We suffocate and bury you until all you can hear is trash. We play psychic dares and gamelan with you as we put Kenong and Ketuk over our heads and swing from the ceiling. Rid yourself of your old capitalist identity! Come to JNM, 24 June.
