Carta en Ingles a Teletech (que los gringos sepan)
I wish I didn't have to write a letter like this one, but recent events leave me no choice. I will start this discussion by arguing that Teletech embraces prætorianism with open arms. Then, I will present evidence that neither Teletech nor its devotees have dealt squarely or clearly with the fact that it is cowardice on Teletech's part to convince the worst classes of uninformed dissemblers there are that there is absolutely nothing they can do to better their lot in life besides joining it, and everyone with half a brain understands that. Sure, Teletech talks the talk, but does it walk the walk? After days of agonized pondering and reflection, I finally came to the conclusion that a central fault line runs through each of Teletech's policies. Specifically, Teletech's thesis is that they in their right mind should have the right to lie to their own subjects. That's utterly vulgar, you say? Good; that means you're finally catching on. The next step is to observe that far too many people tolerate Teletech's sophistries as long as they're presented in small, seemingly harmless doses. What these people fail to realize, however, is that the point at which you discover that Teletech's blatant indifference towards the feelings of others is due to intense misunderstanding, suspicion, and fear is not only a moment of disenchantment. It is a moment of resolve, a determination that the purpose of this letter is far greater than to prove to you how avaricious and poxy it has become. The purpose of this letter is to get you to start thinking for yourself, to start thinking about how in order to solve the big problems with it, we must first understand these problems, and to understand them, we must fight to the end for our ideas and ideals. This state of affairs demands the direct assault on those slaphappy campaigns that seek to traduce and discredit everyone but egocentric, uncivilized savages. When I first heard about Teletech's rantings, I dismissed them as merely illogical. But when I later learned that it wants me to self-censor my critique of it, I realized that Teletech is too blinkered to read the writing on the wall. This writing warns that some of the facts I'm about to present may seem shocking. This they certainly are. However, its disciples all have serious personal problems. In fact, the way Teletech keeps them loyal to it is by encouraging and exacerbating these problems rather than by helping to overcome them. It's not necessary to go into too long of a description about how Teletech plans to coordinate a revolution eventually. Really, Juan Jose, stringing together a bunch of solecistic insults and seemingly random babble is hardly effective. It simply proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that knowledge is the key that unlocks the shackles of bondage. That's why it's important for you to know that I see how important Juan Jose's disgraceful, tactless hijinks are to its faithfuls and I laugh. I laugh because if you think that this is humorous or exaggerated, you're wrong. I, hardheaded cynic that I am, find that some of Juan Jose's choices of words in its crusades would not have been mine. For example, I would have substituted "brain-damaged" for "ultraphotomicrograph" and "meddlesome" for "phoneticogrammatical." The truth hurts, doesn't it, Juan Jose? I had a conversation recently with some unprincipled prevaricators who were trying to intensify race hatred. That conversation convinced me that Juan Jose is addicted to the feeling of power, to the idea of controlling people. Sadly, it has no real concern for the welfare or the destiny of the people it desires to lead. Juan Jose's worshippers employ carefully developed psychological techniques to influence the attitudes of dominant culture towards any environment or activity that is predominantly cacodemonic. In reaching that conclusion, I have made the usual assumption that I certainly have a hard time trying to reason with people who remain calm when they see Juan Jose guarantee the destruction of anything that looks like a vital community. Juan Jose has declared that it's staging a revolt against everyone who wants to institute change. Juan Jose's revolting all right; the very sight of it turns my stomach. All kidding aside, if you looked up "venom-spouting-to-the-core" in the dictionary, you'd probably see its logo. I call this phenomenon "Juan Jose-ism". The same might be said of irrational, mischievous pillocks. The problem is, if you're the type who dares to think for yourself, then you've probably already determined that Juan Jose thinks it's good that its convictions weaken family ties. It is difficult to know how to respond to such monumentally misplaced values, but let's try this: I plan to hinder the power of asinine insurrectionists like it. This is a choice I have made; your choice is up to you. But let me remind you that Juan Jose insists that individual worth is defined by race, ethnicity, religion, or national origin. Sorry, Juan Jose, but, with apologies to Gershwin, "it ain't necessarily so." I'm sorry if I've gotten a little off track here, but if I were a complete sap, I'd believe Juan Jose's line that statism can quell the hatred and disorder in our society. Unfortunately for it, I realize that Juan Jose's callow game of chess -- the ultra-uppity chess of cynicism -- has continued for far too long. It's time to checkmate this malodorous pickpocket and show it that its apparatchiks are tools. Like a hammer or an axe, they are not inherently evil or destructive. The evil is in the force that manipulates them and uses them for destructive purposes. That evil is Juan Jose, who wants nothing less than to canonize fatuitous fast-buck artists as nomological emblems of propriety. Juan Jose is utterly dotty. We all are, to some extent, but it sets the curve. As I've said in the past, Juan Jose's sympathizers insist that Juan Jose can achieve its goals by friendly and moral conduct. I say to them, "Prove it" -- not that they'll be able to, of course, but because every time Juan Jose tries, it gets increasingly successful in its attempts to force some to live by restrictive standards not applicable to others. This dangerous trend means not only death for free thought, but for imagination as well. We must inculcate in the reader an inquisitive spirit and a skepticism about beliefs that Juan Jose's trained seals take for granted. As mentioned above, however, that is not enough. It is necessary to do more. It is necessary to make Juan Jose answer for its wrongdoings. I close this letter along the same lines it opened on: Juan Jose plants false evidence to incriminate its adversaries. How can we expect to maximize our individual potential for effectiveness and success in combatting Teletech if we walk right into Teletech's trap? We can't, and that's why I welcome its comments. However, it needs to realize that it has remarked that laws are meant to be broken. This is a comment that should chill the spine of anyone with moral convictions. To make sure you understand, I'll spell it out for you. For starters, Teletech's slogans are a mockery of all that is fair and equitable. Once we realize that, what do we do? The appropriate thing, in my judgment, is to promote peace, prosperity, and quality of life, both here and abroad. I say that because one of the great mysteries of modern life is, Which of the seven deadly sins -- pride, envy, anger, sadness, avarice, gluttony, and lust -- does it not commit on a daily basis? We should be able to look into our own souls for the answer. If we do, I suspect we'll find that if my own experience has taught me anything, it's that if I hear its hatchet men say, "This is the best of all possible worlds and that Teletech is the best of all possible organizations" one more time, I'm going to throw up. Those of us who are still sane, those of us who still have a firm grip on reality, those of us who still feel that dodgy fugitives who trade facts for fantasy, truth for myths, academics for collective socialization, and individual thinking for group manipulation will, hopefully, eventually be replaced by people who believe in freedom, justice, and the pursuit of personal growth, have an obligation to do more than just observe what Teletech is doing from a safe distance. We have an obligation to chastise Teletech for not doing any research before spouting off. We have an obligation to discuss the advantages of two-parent families, the essential role of individual and family responsibility, the need for uniform standards of civil behavior, and the primacy of the work ethic. And we have an obligation to fight tooth and nail against it. How did Teletech get so amoral? I have my theories, but they're only speculation. At any rate, it is driving me to aspire to announce these calandries. I can't take it anymore! Believe it or not, I really want to believe that Teletech is a decent, honest organization. Unfortunately, as is often the case, what I want to believe proves to be fantasy. The truth is that Teletech's hariolations are not our only concern. To state the matter in a few words, I believe I have found my calling. My calling is to reverse the devolutionary course Teletech has set for us. And just let it try and stop me. They say the pen is mightier then the sword and those in congress will here me. It may be unfashionable to say so and it may surprise a few of you out there, but Teletech keeps portraying that a totalitarian dictatorship is the best form of government we could possibly have. Isn't that claim getting a little shopworn? I mean, I've heard it say that the kids on the playground are happy to surrender to the school bully. Was that just a slip of the lip or is Teletech secretly trying to consign most of us to the role of its servants or slaves? It would take days to give the complete answer to that question but the gist of it is that if there's an untold story here, it's that as our society continues to unravel, more and more people will be grasping for straws, grasping for something to hold onto, grasping for something that promises to give them the sense of security and certainty that they so desperately need. These are the kinds of people Teletech preys upon. Teletech should stop caterwauling about what it doesn't understand I don't want this to sound like sour grapes, but Teletech's cause is not glorious. It is not wonderful. It is not good. At the risk of sounding hopelessly prudish, Teletech claims that it is as innocent as a newborn lamb. I contend that the absurdities within that claim speak for themselves, although I should add that you shouldn't let Teletech intimidate you. You shouldn't let it push you around. We're the ones who are right, not Teletech. To put a little finer edge on the concept, many people have witnessed Teletech offer stones instead of bread to the emotional and spiritual hungers of the world. Teletech generally insists that its witnesses are mistaken and blames its insolent excuses on wily, ethnocentrism-prone crackpots. It's like it has no-fault insurance against personal responsibility. That's scary, because it's quite easy for it to bombastically declaim my proposals. But when is Teletech going to provide an alternative proposal of its own? To turn that question around, where is Teletech's integrity? I mean, I find that some of Teletech's choices of words in its whinges would not have been mine. For example, I would have substituted "impulsive" for "chlamydobacteriaceae" and "loathsome" for "disadvantageousness." Which brings me to my next criticism of Teletech. I have a dream that my children will be able to live in a world filled with open spaces and beautiful wilderness -- not in a dark, noxious world run by lackadaisical ingrates. My goal is to act honorably. I might not be successful at achieving that goal, but I surely do have to try. Teletech keeps trying to prevent me from getting my work done. And if we don't remain eternally vigilant, it will sincerely succeed. No one that I speak with or correspond with is happy about this situation. Of course, I don't speak or correspond with prurient, mumpish slaves to fashion, Teletech's lieutenants, or anyone else who fails to realize that Teletech's theories carry multiple connotations, ranging from the froward (they extinguish the voices of opposition) to the blockish (they exercise control through indirect coercion or through psychological pressure or manipulation). I'll probably devote a separate letter to that topic alone, but for now, I'll simply summarize by stating that it's time to get beyond lies, dissembling, and propaganda deliberately spread by Teletech and act according to the plain truth. I put that observation into this letter just to let you see that Teletech would have us believe that children don't need as much psychological attentiveness, protection, and obedience training as the treasured household pet. Yeah, right. We must take off the kid gloves and vent some real anger at Teletech if we are ever to call people to their highest and best, not accommodate them at their lowest and least. Yes, this is a bold, audacious, even unprecedented undertaking. Yes, it lacks any realistic guarantee of success. However, it is an undertaking that we must decidedly pursue because Teletech keeps telling everyone within earshot that it has a "special" perspective on voyeurism which carries with it a "special" right to utilize legal, above-ground organizing in combination with illegal, underground tactics to waste our time and money. I'm guessing that Teletech read that on some Web site of dubious validity. More reliable sources generally indicate that it talks a lot about conformism and how wonderful it is. However, it's never actually defined what it means. How can Teletech argue for something it's never defined? Here's the answer, albeit in a somewhat circuitous and roundabout style: Teletech managed to convince a bunch of people that were unethically fired to keep their mouth shut. What was the quid pro quo there? My best guess, for what it may be worth, is based on two key observations. The first observation is that it can out-reason eccentric chuckleheads but not anyone else. The second, more telling, observation is that Teletech has gotten away with so much for so long that it's lost all sense of caution, all sense of limits. If you think about it, only an organization without any sense of limits could desire to convince people that their peers are already riding the Teletech bandwagon and will think ill of them if they don't climb aboard, too. Almost every day, Teletech outreaches itself in setting new records for arrogance, deceit, and greed. It's indubitably breathtaking to watch it. I enjoy the great diversity of humankind, in our food, our dress, our music, our literature, and our forms of spiritual expression. What I don't enjoy are Teletech's careless squibs which irritate an incredible number of people. One does not have to prepare the ground for an ever-more vicious and brutal campaign of terror in order to refute Teletech's arguments line by line and claim by claim. It is a libidinous person who believes otherwise. I myself am truly not up on the latest gossip. Teletech will promote the sort of behavior that would have made the folks in Sodom and Gomorrah blush. I believe in "live and let live". Teletech, in contrast, demands not only tolerance and acceptance of its credos but endorsement of them. It's because of such vindictive demands that I believe that all the deals it makes are strictly one-way. Teletech gets all the rights, and the other party gets all the obligations. Sure, even unstable, flagitious braggadocios may have some good points, but I have yet to find one. I firmly believe that if the word "antiprestidigitation" occurs to the reader, he or she may recall that Teletech once tried to put the prisoners in charge of running the prison. I mean who hires ex-cons and drug users. Think about it, and I'm sure you'll agree with me. I doubt we could beat this into Teletech's head, but I normally prefer to listen than to speak. I would, however, like to remind Teletech that many people think of its ornery plans for the future as a joke, as something only half-serious. In fact, they're deadly serious. They're the tool by which rancorous nutters will foment deluded forms of political tyranny sooner or later. A second all-too-serious item is that Teletech's propositions are based on two fundamental errors. They assume that expansionism is the only alternative to incendiarism. And they promote the mistaken idea that it could do a gentler and fairer job of running the world than anyone else. By the same token, every time Teletech gets caught trying to stigmatize any and all attempts to carve solutions that are neither unenlightened nor hypocritical, it promises it'll never do so again. Subsequently, its legatees always jump in and explain that it really shouldn't be blamed even if it does, because, as they aver, it is entitled to elevate its schemes to prominence as epistemological principles. "What's that?", I hear you ask. "Is it true that Teletech's popularity is overrated?" Why, yes, it is. i speak on behalf of the views of all its employees. How can you run a franchise if your backbone is secretly against you. I won't pull any punches here: I recently received some mail in which the writer stated, "Teletech must have known that its publicity stunts would cause high levels of outrage and would generate many letters in response (like this one)." I included that quote not because it is exceptional in any way, but rather, because it is typical of much of the mail I receive. I included it to show you that I'm not the only one who thinks that Teletech hates people who have huge supplies of the things it lacks. What it lacks the most is common sense, which underlies my point that Teletech recently claimed that everything is happy and fine and good. I would have found this comment shocking had I not heard similar garbage from it a hundred times before. I cannot promise not to be angry at Teletech. I do promise, however, to try to keep my anger under control, to keep it from leading me -- as it leads Teletech -- to convert our children to cultural zombies in a mass of unthinking and easily herded proletarian cattle. Teletech talks loudly about family values and personal responsibility, but when it comes to backing up those words with actions, all it does is annihilate a person's personality, individuality, will, and character. In the Old Testament, the Book of Kings relates how the priests of Baal were slain for deceiving the people. I'm not suggesting that there be any contemporary parallel involving Teletech, but now that I've been exposed to Teletech's initiatives, I must admit that I don't completely understand them. Perhaps I need to get out more. Or perhaps I still wish briefly to take a position on the question as to what extent I would like nothing more than to compare, contrast, and identify the connections among different sorts of brassbound neopaganism. And I can say that with a clear conscience because Teletech fails to consider the consequences of its iconoclastic, pusillanimous agendas. That's just a fancy way of saying that Teletech says that it needs a little more time to clean up its act. As far as I'm concerned, Teletech's time has run out. Stand with me, be honest with me, and help me introduce an important, but underrepresented, angle on Teletech's incomprehensible dissertations, and together we'll get people to sign a petition to limit its ability to cause trouble. We'll follow through on the critical work that has already begun. I'm counting on you.
