This thread is not about Kobe being a 'ritual sacrifice' so much as defining "what is the purpose of a ritual sacrifice to begin with"?
There is a psychosocial value to killing off a single person for the sake of the larger whole, or rather, for a whole whose existence benefits a very
small proportion of powerful individuals with a major stake in maintaining its future viability. A group consciousness, or those most intimately in
touch with the consciousness of a group, very often determines the more significant events that can happen in the world around us.
When JFK was killed, there are arguments that can be made that his death disabused people of the belief that the world could be made into a better
place. Even the direction, or the particular object of attention, that a society pays attention to can be severely redirected through the power of a
collective trauma - and there is arguably no more effective and efficient a trauma than the killing off of a famous individual that many people have a
personal "relationship" with. Knowing someone makes their death more real to you; and the more famous and consequential a person has been in a
person or social groups world, the more people will identify - or empathize with - whatever happens to them. The chieftain or leader in many
pre-industrial societies was ritually killed; was this mere habit and superstition? Or rather, a sort of psychosocial "hygiene" which when
periodically enacted, kept the larger masses hyper-identified with the hierarchical structure which makes the fate of some people "so much more
important than others"? When a very famous person dies, the net effect is basically to reinforce the status differences between individuals, and in
todays day and age, we don't quite feel right until we've learned what other famous people think and feel about the death of an important person.
Was Kobe Bryant's death accidental? Let me just say that his death couldn't be any more advantageous for those republican senators eager to
exonerate Donald Trump but uncomfortable with the high level of public scrutiny they're facing. The death of someone of Kobe Bryant's celebrity
status is more than sufficient to drawn out any attention and keep the media less focused or concerned with what, relatively speaking, is
astronomically more significant than Kobe Bryant's tragic passing.
Is it so beyond the capacity of the intelligentsia within the CIA to monitor the comings and goings of a famous basketball star, and to, if they so
wished, plant an explosive on a helicopter, which then creates the fire that creates the chaos and havoc that results in the helicopters crashing?
At such a pivotal time in American history, it seems deeply odd that something as unlikely as this - Kobe Bryants death - should occur at exactly the
same time that one of the most corrupt and consequential presidents is facing impeachment, and is predicted to be exonerated by a republican led
senate that would very well prefer less public attention.
The Roman coined the phrase, "qui bono", because when something unlikely or improbable happens, they typically assumed that it wasn't a
coincidence, but probably engineered to create exactly the effect that we're currently perceiving and experiencing.
Accidents do genuinely happen. People do die in accidents; errors happen, and this may ultimately be a error. But it seems even more probable - given
the unbelievable timing of its occurrence, and the sorts of people it benefits - that Kobe Bryant's death has been calculated by very smart people to
create the distraction required to allow this Donald Trump impeachment to come and go with less attention than it otherwise would have.
