He is alone in the universe

Stevo:
The Fight: What does it mean and where does it come from? An Essay: Homosapien. A man. He is alone in the universe. A punker. Still a man. He is alone in the universe, but he connects. How? They hit each other. No clearer way to evaluate whether or not you're alive. Now. Complications. A reason to fight. Somebody different. Difference creates dispute. Dispute is a reason to fight. Now, to fight is a reason to feel pain. Life is pain. So to fight with reason is to be alive with reason. Final analysis: To fight, a reason to live. Problems and Contradictions: I am an anarchist. I believe that there should be no rules, only chaos. Fighting appears to be chaos. And when we slam in the pit a show it is. But when we fight for a reason, like rednecks, there's a system, we fight for what we stand for, chaos. Fighting is a structure, fighting is to establish power, power is government and government is not anarchy. Government is war and war is fighting. The circle goes like this: our redneck skirmishes are cheap perversions of conventional warfare. War implies extreme government because wars are fought to enforce rules or ideals, even freedom. But other people ideals forced on someone else, even if it is something like freedom, is still a rule; not anarchy. This contradiction was becoming clear to me in the fall of '85. Even as early as my first party, "Why did I love to fight?" I framed it, but still, I don't understand it. It goes against my beliefs as a true anarchist. But there it was. Competition, fighting, capitalism, government, THE SYSTEM. That's what we did. It's what we always did. Rednecks kicked the shit out of punks, punks kicked the shit out of mods, mods kicked the shit out of skinheads, skinheads took out the heavy metal guys, and the heavy metal guys beat the living shit out of new wavers and the new wavers did nothing. What was the point? Final summation? None.

{\fscx90\fscy90}STEVO{\fscx100\fscy100}: {\fad(100,100)}The fight. What does it mean,
and where does it come from? An essay.
{\fad(100,100)}Homo sapien. A man.
{\fad(100,100)}He is alone in the universe.
{\fad(100,100)}A punker. Still a man.
{\fad(100,100)}He is alone in the universe.
{\fad(100,100)}But he connects. How?
{\fad(100,100)}They hit each other. Ooh!
{\fad(100,100)}No clearer way to evaluate
whether or not you're alive.
{\fad(100,100)}Now, complications.
{\fad(100,100)}A reason to fight,
somebody different.
{\fad(100,100)}Difference creates dispute.
{\fad(100,100)}Dispute is a reason to fight.
{\fad(100,100)}Now, to fight, is a reason
to feel pain. Life is pain.
{\fad(100,100)}So to fight, with reason,
{\fad(100,100)}...is to be alive with reason.
{\fad(100,100)}Final analysis.
To fight, a reason to live.
{\fad(100,100)}Problems and contradictions:
I am an anarchist.
{\fad(100,100)}I believe that there should be
no rules, only chaos.
{\fad(100,100)}Fighting appears to be chaos,
and when we slam in a pit at a show, it is.
{\fad(100,100)}But when we fight for a reason,
like rednecks, there is a system.
{\fad(100,100)}We fight for what we stand for, chaos.
But fighting is a structure.
{\fad(100,100)}Fighting is to establish power,
power is government...
{\fad(100,100)}...and government is not anarchy.
{\fad(100,100)}Government is war,
and war is fighting.
{\fad(100,100)}The circle goes like this.
Our redneck skirmishes...
{\fad(100,100)}...are cheaper versions
of conventional warfare.
{\fad(100,100)}War implies extreme government,
{\fad(100,100)}...because wars are fought to enforce
rules or ideals, even freedom.
{\fad(100,100)}But other people's ideals
forced on someone else,
{\fad(100,100)}...even if it is something
like freedom, is still a rule.
{\fad(100,100)}Not anarchy.
{\fad(100,100)}This contradiction was becoming
clear to me in the fall of '85.
{\fad(100,100)}Even as early as my first party,
why did I love to fight?
{\fad(100,100)}I framed it,
but I still don't understand it.
{\fad(100,100)}It goes against my beliefs
as a true anarchist, but there it was.
{\fad(100,100)}Competition, fighting,
capitalism, government,
{\fad(100,100)}...the system.
It's what we always did.
{\fad(100,100)}Rednecks kicked the shit out of punks,
punks kicked the shit out of mods,
{\fad(100,100)}...mods kicked the shit out of skinheads,
skinheads took out the heavy metal guys,
{\fad(100,100)}...the heavy metal guys
beat the living shit out of new wavers,
{\fad(100,100)}...and the new wavers did nothing,
they were the new hippies.
{\fad(100,100)}What was the point?
Final summation?
{\fad(100,100)}None.
So I'll just close up
if you guys give me a second.
Dude, she's, like, responsible, you know?
She's a businesswoman.
She owns her own store.
She's making a contribution to society.
Bob, she owns a head shop.
She sells bongs, Bob.
– No, no, no. It's not what you sell.
– Blah, blah, blah.
Why do you got to be so cynical?
Why don't you grow up?
You bitch!
– Hey, Mark.
– Hey. Great party last week.
– We aim to please.
– Animals.
I've always loved animals.
It was a little violent at the end.
Violent?
Look who's talking, Mr. NRA.
– What are you doing here?
– Actually, I came by to say I'm off.
– Where are you going?
– I'm going to Miami.
– What the hell is in Miami?
– Hell is in Miami.
Don't worry. I'll be back.
You can always count on that.
Why would you ever come back
to a place like this, man?
It's like any other place, Bob.
People, houses, roads, cars.
What else do you think is out there?
– Freedom.
– Yeah.
Freedom.
It's not out there.
Freedom is another way of saying "death."
Know what I mean?
You're pretty fuckin' weird, man.
You know that?
– I'm off.
– All right, man. See ya.
Hey, Mark, if you ever get lonely...
...or if you ever need someone to talk to,
Bob's there for you.
Hey, Stevo!
– Fuck you!
– {\fscx90\fscy90}STEVO{\fscx100\fscy100}: And that was the last we saw of Mark.
{\fad(100,100)}Never came back from Florida,
if that was where he was going.
{\fad(100,100)}Rumor flew around...
{\fad(100,100)}...that he had died in a plane crash
like he was supposed to...
{\fad(100,100)}...all those years ago.
{\fad(100,100)}Anyways, that was Salt Lake.
People came in, and they went out.
Oh, no.
{\fscx90\fscy90}BOTH{\fscx100\fscy100}: Fuck you.
So, Trish, are we hangin' out later?
I'll tell you what, Bob.
You're coming with me.
– I am?
– That's right.
I own you now.
Oh, yeah. That's right.
I forgot to tell you.
I sold myself to Trish for 36 bucks.
Thirty-six bucks. Wow, Trish,
that's a good deal.
Salt Lake City.
Land of the dead sea.
Zion, as the Mormons call it.
It really is the holy land.
{\fscx90\fscy90}BOB{\fscx100\fscy100}: {\fad(100,100)}See you, Stevo.
{\fscx85\fscy85\fad(200,200)}(CAR HONKING)
You can't afford me, old man.
– How are things going these days?
– Not so bad.
– How are the ladies treatin' ya?
– The ladies?
I tell you, the women in
this town are so, miserable,
I'd give anything
to get the hell out.
You know, you gave up
a good thing in my mother, sir.
Maybe so.
So, good news.
The world is coming to its end.
– Better.
– Oh. Ow, shit!
