Can’t ignore this awesome exchange in the comments.
Obviously OOO is build around a certain rhetoric of oppression and marginality – “We must fight the powers that be!” – “No one’s here to fight, man” – “What are you talking about? The enemies are everywhere – look! look! over there!” – “Sorry, mate, don’t see any. I am going to go have a beer and relax.” – “Traitor! Everyone is a traitor!”
I think it must have started here (judging by the angry and whiny fits in the consequent comments).
The victimhood and the complex of persecution is vital to objectology – good job on understanding this point and pursing it.
“We are under siege!”
[UPDATE] The original blogger responds with what is perhaps the most bizarre reinforcement of the above-mentioned persecution complex. How clever! I bet it’s just a really cool inside joke. No one can be that stupid and be so open about it…
