DIRECT ACTION UPDATE

Hey everybody did a great job in class today breaking the back of systemic oppressive power relations! @Gylfie and @Crystal Rosethorn set the semantic buffers right up near the chalkboard, which definitely slowed VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS down as he attempted to maintain his tyrannical position of superiority. Then @mimi alexander was ready with the Neural Correlates argument, and while he was distracted with that I hit him with the Argument of Simplicity and sliced him wide open with Occam's razor. Seriously, without a room full of fascist misogynists to back him up, his dualism just crumbles away.

Meanwhile, great work on the posters, @Miranda Ashdove -- love the art! That giant head of VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS on the baby body is fantastic, and I'm sure also helped keep him off balance. Also the fact that @GROTTO G.S.M. INC. keeps leaving him voicemails and clogging up his DMs.

This isn't the end of things, I'm sure. VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS could push back harder after this, maybe pull some BS with the Zombie Argument... and there's still those Horrifying Plastic Clowns out there, who might be nastier than ever following our win today. So everybody stay safe out there! And keep those Anti-Clown Goggles handy!

I'm all for rebelling against the system and attacking authority figures, but we need to organize our approach in order to maximize the damage. To do this, we have to ask a couple of hard questions: What does VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS have to gain from his "inferiors" disregarding their animal instincts? What exactly is he gaining from his connection with the clowns? And why does @GROTTO G.S.M. INC. suddenly want to further our cause?

First, it seems obvious that by urging his pupils to disconnect from worldly senses and sink deeper into purely conceptual and spiritual antics, our old pal VECKY aims to incapacitate us and make us easier to control. But why, specifically? Even though we are just students, our combined abilities as a student body could easily overcome any opponent. If him and his associates fear our strength could get in the way of their mission, it would be simpler to defeat us before we can even try and fight back.

Second, another influx of clown activity much like that of '15 spells bad news, and not just because they are creepy as hell. Here at PsyHigh, we know the rarity of coincidence, and we cannot pretend that pasty makeup and squishy red noses are unrelated to the problem at hand. Due to VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS's spotty past, gathering information on his possible motives is extremely difficult. It seems that traditional outlets of knowledge cannot help us, but reading auras, inducing precognitive dreams, and performing an array of spells could help retrace his steps back to his first interaction with clowns.

Finally, @GROTTO G.S.M. INC. never offers its assistance without some sort of catch. Although the organization's intricate knowledge could prove useful, it almost certainly has an ulterior motive driving it. Everything that occurs on campus is filtered through their "security system" for our safety; information is power, and with power corruption ultimately follows.

Aye, these clowns are most insidious!

Dripping, drooling red mouths, hideously painted faces, murderous eyes gleaming with insanity. Lurking in the woods, leaping out from behind bushes with their switchblades and rubber chickens, hiding in closets and underneath beds. And honking horns. Always honking their squeaky horns.

The duly assembled Knights of the Wig wasted no time bringing the fight to the red-nosed devils. They seemed unprepared for our defense, falling out of ranks, running in ridiculous circles in their giant shoes. These were mere foot soldiers, pawns of the higher ranking Dukes of Clown, who are so terrible to look at they can only be endured through lead goggles. They have not yet made an appearance, thank the Wig.

But even more horrific--have you noticed an increasing number of Clowns working on campus? In the cafeteria, the administration building, driving buses? Could it be that they're filling positions left by school staff who have been deported to their home dimensions following the Reality Accident? Now they no longer stand in the rain, cleavers raised, emitting scratchy recorded laughter, but instead are serving us meatloaf, and making us do push-ups!

The Kinghts of the Wig are trained in the esoteric martial art of Clown Fighting. But we're not equipped to handle making small talk at the checkout counter with them, or figuring out how much of a tip they need. We may be entering a whole new theater of clown warfare.

Most sincerely,

Lady Bettricia

Walking through the courtyard, littered with horrifying plastic clown body parts, it's clear how important the Knights of the Wig have been in keeping us safe. For days now we've all heard the swishing and swooshing of their swords as they lop of the heads of those nightmarish circus monsters, and we've all been walking through the puddles of whip cream and spilled pop corn and sticky clown syrup on our way to our classes....

So I don't want to seem ungrateful when I say perhaps @bettricia and @Sir Olaf McHandshake are going too far by casting suspicion on all the Clowns working at Psyhigh these days. It seems wrong to stereotype a whole group of people just because they're... Clowns. Plus, they're not even plastic clowns. And they might have taken those positions left open following the reality deportations, but don't Clowns need jobs too?

When I started this protest, it was specifically about VELKOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS choice of curriculum. And his sexual harassment. But, as an intersectional psychic, I think it's really dangerous to begin labeling entire groups of people. And I can't condone the work of the Knights of the Wig beyond their traditional, artisan, horrific plastic clown slaying.

I agree @Juliana Hatchett. As a lot of students here know,i usually help with cooking lunch along side the clown lunch ladies. They are much fun,always telling jokes and having a good time. And of course,they always do the surprise inside birthday cakes! I have yet to learn how to make one of those...anyways they even got me a pink wig and a red nose,just so i can fit in it them. How did it start? As punishment from a while ago. And i hear we are getting an assitant clown librarian,so i am excited about that. So don't judge clowns,when they are nice and fun and are the worlds smile...at least a part of it. Good day,good luck,and go Clown Around!

Yeah there are some people it just doesn't make any sense to argue with, because you know you're never going to change their minds.They're not even willing to try and look at things differently. I feel like VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS is one of those people.

Couldn't @GROTTO G.S.M. INC. just have VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS committed to a Ghost Server or something? Or lose his seat assignment? Drain his brain account?

@mimi alexander AND ANYONE INTERESTED IN PUNISHMENT FOR VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS.

WE SUPPOSE WE COULD COMMIT VEKLOR TO A GHOST SERVER, BUT THAT IS EASILY BREAKABLE FOR SOMEONE LIKE VEKLOR. WE RECOMMEND PLACING VEKLOR IN THE BRAIN WIPE COLONY #023089. THIS WILL RESET THE BRAIN ACCOUNT , BUT RETAIN OLD MEMORIES, IN ORDER TO REHABILITATE VEKLOR. THIS WOULD HAVE TO BE DONE, OF COURSE, BEHIND THE BACKS OF THE PSYCHIC LAW DEPARTMENT, BUT IT WOULD KEEP VEKLOR FROM REEKING HAVOC ANYWHERE ELSE.
WE HAVE THE RESOURCES TO DO THIS,AS WELL AS THE CONNECTIONS TO DISGUISE OURSELVES FROM THE LAW.
IF YOU OR ANYONE ELSE IS INTERESTED IN THIS, CONTACT US.

GROTTO G.S.M.

You know this whole VEKLOR THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS thing has started to creep me out, so I decided to just pretend he doesn't exist. And I t's been working out great! I did stub my toe really bad on his ego (which was parked on the sidewalk in front of the gym), and accidentally fell into the giant pit left by his absence of compassion and twisted my ankle. And, because I am refusing to believe in his reality, totally bonked my head on his ability to incite.

Sure, if I chose to believe in him I might have seen these things coming, but for now I've decided it's healthier for me to live this way.
