“funny thing that shit has backfired before. Here in Swedecuckistan a couple of years ago a right wing website got hacked and bunch of personal info about people that had accounts there leaked out to left-groups and media. People got outed as racist in the news. But now, people have prepared themselves mentally to get outed so when media shows up and they stand their ground and telling journalists “I regret nothing”.
This has made people overall more “fuck the media, fuck the social stigma”, so many more use their real names when they comment and more and more are saying things like, “yeah we need to send people back” openly.
Now the MSM and left-groups are pissing themselves because they realize when they tried get rid of anonymity they instead created people that no longer gives fuck if they get outed as racists. Their new approach is censoring instead, trying to get internet-providers to block sites that isnt politically correct. “
“The USA was successful to the extent that its highly decentralized political nature made it difficult for the Jews to impose and coordinate their agenda on the American people. The decentralized system in concord with the limited (in reach) communication technology led to the blooming of many different small newspapers, generally run by locals who were doing it on the sides and providing critical commentary/polemic against state and federal policies.
This made it extremely hard for the Jews to control public opinion, as buying out and policing all the tens of thousands of local newspapers was virtually impossible. The Jews were thus limited in their power to the notoriosly corrupt (even then) metropolitan cities like NYC and so on where the higher population density and depersonalizing atomization that comes with big numbers of people in cities allowed them to flourish.
The Founding Fathers of the United States were mostly critical of Jews and knew about their subversive tendencies, but having just escaped the theocratic reaches of European monarchies and the catholic church, they were averse to attempts to crank down on the Jews as a people as they feared this would set a precedent and give the government power to then crank down on other beliefs according to its whim.
For a long time, the plan of the Founding Fathers to limit Jewish subversion by decentralizing political power would have appeared like it was working, but with the advent of radio and long distance communication, and in conjunction with the industrial revolutions push of even bigger population masses into metropolitan areas, the ability to cartelize the means by which public opinion is formed and put them into the hands of a small nepotistic elite (strengthened in its financial power by the 1913 federal reserve and other acts of Congress which served the interests of Jewish banking elites) became increasingly apparent. Jews jumped on television and the movie industry the moment it emerged – Walt Disney himself noted this and spent a large portion of his career trying to resist Jewish attempts to buy or crush his enterprise.
Local newspapers which would not sell out or agree to consolidation were either forced out of business, crushed economically, or they were bullied into submission by successive anti-free speech legislating and regulatory busiwork (the “fairness doctrine” is probably the best example of this) as well as all the tyrannical anti-speech measures implemented by the Jewnited States government during WW2.”
“A bruise that formed purple and green in less than 5 hours! Amazing!
Especially considering that purple and green bruises form from the breakdown of hemoglobin, a process which takes 24+ hours to even *start*. If it had happened any less than 6 hours before she took the picture it would still be bright to dull red. Purple starts after the red blood cells die and release hemoglobin. Min. six hours. Green doesn’t start until hemoglobin begins to breakdown into biliverdin. Min. 24 hours.

“I had a look at my sister’s sketchbook one day, and noticed everything in it was boring. She drew as a hobby and was serious about it for several years before I was, but everything in it was the same couple characters with the same expressions in the same five to nine positions/setups over and over and over again (the linework etc. never got better either but that’s unrelated to “creativity”). So I asked her when she drew and why it was all the same, and she said “I draw when I get inspired” and “There’s only so much to draw anyways.”
I’ve always thought of myself as largely uncreative/uncurious, but that line just stunk to high heaven.
From then on whenever I noticed I thought there wasn’t much to draw, I forced myself to just draw anything I think was too obvious or below me. Oh a bus stop is trivial and simple? Why don’t you draw it then? So then I go and draw it and I find I only know a bit of what one bus stop looks like, find that I don’t know what lighting or camera position to use, what to put in the scene, how to arrange them to present the bus stop as the primary subject and focal point, and a number of other things. And then I realize my folly and go back to studying whatever it was I was doing before then with renewed respect for the subject matter.
What’s probably more important than “stop symbol drawing” is “stop symbol thinking”. Philosophy about all thinking being simplifications and symbols aside, it’s just recognizing what items it is that you can and can’t do.
Certainly there are things you don’t want to draw, but there should be plenty of things you don’t mind drawing. Draw them. Change up perspective, camera position, lighting, whatever. From there you’ll notice that you can’t actually do this, could do better at that, and the other thing you’re not really sure what it is but you’ve seen other people be amazing at and want to find out how you can do it too.
If you can’t, then it just goes to show there’s no cure for stupidity.”

“Only 40% of Cuckoo species practice brood parasitism. And they have evolved it as a behavior in contrast to species of Cuckoo which are still parental. (Not all Cuckoos are like that.)
Different species and races of Cuckoos are adapted to parasitising different host species, with different colored and patterned eggs to match the host eggs (which have evolved color and patterning to facilitate rejection of alien eggs.)
Most hosts will reject odd eggs to save their own. But chick rejection is rare. However, some birds in Australia will reject odd chicks too. So Cuckoos there have evolved chick mimicry as well.
If Reed Warblers, Robins, Dunnocks, Redstarts, Prinias, Weaverbirds, and others were able, it would be rational for them to hunt down and exterminate the parasitic cuckoos, and be rid of their depredations once and for all.
But if the cuckoos were able, it might be rational for them to evolve narratives and moralisms as countermeasures, and attempt to demoralize the species they parasitize, or sow dissention and discord, pit them against one another, and employ a variety of other stratagems to prevent them from unifying in opposition.”

If Hitler 1.0 cannot be morally affirmed, this is as good as saying that we should all give up now. You can’t secretly implement 90% of NS reforms while the original NS is still at the level of a religious taboo.
Also, Revision of the war story and the Nuremberg narrative drains legitimacy away from Jews/ EU/ Communism and Anglo-American governments and ruling classes, which realistically will have to be liquidated. Without an animating narrative (namely the truth, that these groups want to enslave the earth) you cannot call forth the necessary moral energy from those who are to be enslaved.
It goes beyond the Holocaust and includes Soviet control of the American government during the war, the true story of McCarthy, the actual motives of the Germans, the removal of the Volksdeutch, Eisenhower’s starvation camps, torture at Nuremberg, Operation Keelhaul, etc. etc. etc.

“”As Iraqi military launched their offensive on Fallujah this week to retake the key city from Daesh terrorists, there were bizarre Western media headlines indicating US “concern” for civilian casualties.
Given that US military forces killed hundreds of civilians in the same city back in 2004 and bequeathed a deadly radioactive legacy to the population from depleted uranium munitions, such belated American concern for civilian life in Fallujah does not sound credible.
Could there be another agenda, such as preventing Iraqi forces from delivering a knock-out blow to the IS militants (also known as Daesh) holed up inside the city? Although the US is officially waging a war to defeat these jihadists, the terrorists are, at the same time, documented to function covertly as Pentagon assets for regime change in neighboring Syria.
This week, US government-owned news outlet Voice of America ran this headline on Monday: “Concerns over civilian suffering as Iraqi forces surround Fallujah.” The headline’s wording was subsequently changed in later VOA editions after Iraqi forces actually began their offensive on the Daesh stronghold. Other Western news media outlets also expressed alarm that some 50,000 civilians trapped in the battleground city might come to harm from the intense fighting, or be used as human shields by its terrorist defenders.
Daesh militants first occupied Fallujah in early 2014, and along with the northern Iraqi city of Mosul and eastern Syria’s Raqqa, it formed part of the cross-border triangular axis of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Retaking Fallujah would thus be a crucial strategic victory for the Iraqi government forces against the extremist group. It is believed that Fallujah, which is only 50 km from Baghdad, has been a major source of suicide bombers who have killed hundreds of civilians in the Iraqi capital over the past two years. Three suicide attacks earlier this week reportedly killed at least 20 people in greater Baghdad.””

“How could an ad campaign lead to a rise in the birthrate, you ask?
Well, the answer is simple. Due to basic evolutionary biology, women have an extremely overwhelming desire to do whatever is deemed socially acceptable by whomever is deemed to be the authority on such things. As such, they will pretty much go along with absolutely anything.
If you put it on TV that they should go out in the streets topless on a “slutwalk” in order to show the world how “empowered” they are, they will do that.
Conversely, if you put it on TV that they should be finding responsible men and producing babies, they will do that instead.
Despite what they told you in school, it really is that simple. This is why ultimately real change cannot be done without taking control of the government, media, etc.”
“Boomers believed women and minorities were equal to them because they were equal to women and minorities.”
“If antiracism were rational or sustainable, persuasion and competition would be enough to guarantee its rise, spread, and persistence. That is to say, all other things being equal, if racists are incurring costs, and foregoing benefits, in order to hang on to outmoded or invalid prejudices, then they will be out-competed eventually by people who do not incur those costs and who do avail themselves of those benefits.
But invariably, anti-racists resort to lying, bullying, economic sanctions, and even violence. They’re not content to be better, or to be righter, and to let the results speak for themselves. But they must proactively impose themselves and their preferences in order to make any headway.
In point of fact, while racists DO incur costs, and forego benefits, by making ingroup/outgroup distinctions and employing prejudices and sterotypes as decision-making criteria, it now seems clear that anti-racists incur more costs, and forego more benefits, by failing to do so. And that’s why both the enforcement of antiracism is so nasty and so vigorous, and why racism is mysteriously resurgent after a century of retreat, in this, the current year.
People are different. Differences create difficulties, frictions, and transaction costs. Economizing on these is a competitive strategy, and this suggests segregation. Anyone who ever said otherwise was lying or deluded.
(Jews were lying to advance their own ethnic interests by insinuating themselves into white societies and obtaining ingroup status and privilege by attenuating white ethnocentrism – without reciprocating the same. Europeans were just too high on their own farts, whether Christian universalism, or the secular, enlightenment, equivalents. Undoubtedly, many Europeans have been complicit in duplicity for self-serving reasons. But most get off the hook on that charge on account of paying the full price for their errors, and then some…)”

“Daily Stormer, TRS, and their memers are the ones who have forced the Alt Right and it’s positions into the mainstream narrative. They are responsible for 95+% of the altrights wider exposure through their harassment of Jew media figures. Everywhere in Europe where there is a more radical option, that radical option wins out – Golden Dawn in Italy, Kotleba in Slovakia, LNNK in Latvia, even Jobbik despite it’s recent cuckoldry, have seen far more success than their alternative kosher conservatives.
Likewise, practically speaking, the hardcore “extremists” deserve credit as the only ones actually reaching out to the people they claim to represent. Golden Dawn is popular because it carries out clothing and food drives, provides physical security to Greeks who need protection from marauding gangs of immigrants. Sons of Odin do the same, and have by their actions resulted in more exposure of our ideas world wide as well as actually, you know, protecting and helping average beaten-down Europeans. Casapound in Italy provides housing, food and protection to average people and are the largest action-oriented nationalist group seeing any practical results. In the UK National Action are literally the only ones doing anything with their street theatre, with the UK equivalentof Taylorites spending all their effort attacking NA for upstaging them.
Taylor and AmRen cannot be demonstrated as having accomplished anything. Their ratings are shit, and like most of the alt-right, they simply take credit for the general shift in the overton window and in tone, their role in which has not been reliably quantified – though that wont stop people like Sean who supposedly base their opinions on data and only data, from claiming otherwise, becuase htey have a personal and ideological motive to do so.
Meanwhile, fascist and Nazi groups don’t just whine about Negroes on the internet, they go into the street and support the white Europeans who actually suffer from nigger crime and filth. NPI and AmRen certainly raise enough money that they could walk the talk, and do something to help the whites who don’t have the luxury of flight, who you’d think Taylor and Spencer would want to cultivate and court, but what do they do on any grassroots level? Nothing! And nothign they have done can be substantially proven as having made any change – all you have are vague appeals – “oh well he has a website and racism is rising so he must be responsible!” Total wishful thinking bullshit, it’s fucking pathetic.
AmRen and Taylor have not elicited any significant media attention, they cannot market themselves to the most important target demographics, they are not capable of going beyond the most basic bitch paleocon pseudo-race-baiting and thus get old very fast to anyone who actually cares abotu what is happening, and they sure as hell haven’t done anything to help the average white man who has to suffer under the nigger tyranny AmRen pretends to care about.
“The meme-right is good but when somebody gets exposure and they admit to being a pretender, it completely fucks it up.”
The meme right that is making an impact is serious – it’s Anglin and the Stormer readers, and probably TRS to a lesser extent. Here on Facebook and on Twitter a lot of cucked faggots are probably not serious, but the Jew Media can’t tell – we are aware of how worthless so many of these subhumans are because we have been aware of them for awhile on Facebook, which for all its Jew faults, works well to elicit casual or impulsive content that leads people to exposing their true character and motives.”
“Men subconsciously judge women’s sluttiness for eminently practical reasons, just as women judge men on a host of alpha benchmarks for similarly practical reasons. No moral equation required. “Slut” is, in fact, a morally neutral term in the context of the sexual market, where a slutty girl is viewed, justifiably, desirably as an easy lay who will go all the way right away, and undesirably as a girlfriend or wife prospect in whom to invest precious resources. With the law and social institutions of the modern west arrayed against male interest as it hasn’t been in all of human history, it is of critical importance that men get this part of choosing girls for long term investmest and wife and mother potential down to a science.”
“The company was founded in 1994, spurred by what Bezos called his “regret minimization framework,” which described his efforts to fend off any regrets for not participating sooner in the Internet business boom during that time. In 1994, Bezos left his employment as vice-president of D. E. Shaw & Co., a Wall Street firm, and moved to Seattle. He began to work on a business plan for what would eventually become Amazon.com.
Jeff Bezos incorporated the company as “Cadabra” on July 5, 1994. Bezos changed the name to Amazon a year later after a lawyer misheard its original name as “cadaver”. The company went online as Amazon.com in 1995.
Bezos selected the name Amazon by looking through the dictionary, and settled on “Amazon” because it was a place that was “exotic and different” just as he planned for his store to be; the Amazon river, he noted was by far the “biggest” river in the world, and he planned to make his store the biggest in the world. Bezos placed a premium on his head start in building a brand, telling a reporter, “There’s nothing about our model that can’t be copied over time. But you know, McDonald’s got copied. And it still built a huge, multibillion-dollar company. A lot of it comes down to the brand name. Brand names are more important online than they are in the physical world.” Additionally, a name beginning with “A” was preferential due to the probability it would occur at the top of any list that was alphabetized.
Since June 19, 2000, Amazon’s logotype has featured a curved arrow leading from A to Z, representing that the company carries every product from A to Z, with the arrow shaped like a smile.
After reading a report about the future of the Internet that projected annual Web commerce growth at 2,300%, Bezos created a list of 20 products that could be marketed online. He narrowed the list to what he felt were the five most promising products which included: compact discs, computer hardware, computer software, videos, and books. Bezos finally decided that his new business would sell books online, due to the large world-wide demand for literature, the low price points for books, along with the huge number of titles available in print. Amazon was originally founded in Bezos’ garage in Bellevue, Washington.
The company began as an online bookstore, an idea spurred off with discussion with John Ingram of Ingram Book (now called Ingram Content Group), along with Keyur Patel who still holds a stake in Amazon. Amazon was able to access books at wholesale from Ingram. In the first two months of business, Amazon sold to all 50 states and over 45 countries. Within two months, Amazon’s sales were up to $20,000/week. While the largest brick and mortar bookstores and mail order catalogs might offer 200,000 titles, an online bookstore could “carry” several times more, since it would have a practically unlimited virtual (not actual) warehouse: those of the actual product makers/suppliers.
Amazon was incorporated in 1994, in the state of Washington. In July 1995, the company began service and sold its first book on Amazon.com: Douglas Hofstadter’s Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought. In October 1995, the company announced itself to the public. In 1996, it was reincorporated in Delaware. Amazon issued its initial public offering of stock on May 15, 1997, trading under the NASDAQ stock exchange symbol AMZN, at a price of US$18.00 per share ($1.50 after three stock splits in the late 1990s).
Amazon’s initial business plan was unusual; it did not expect to make a profit for four to five years. This “slow” growth caused stockholders to complain about the company not reaching profitability fast enough to justify investing in, or to even survive in the long-term. When the dot-com bubble burst at the start of the 21st century, destroying many e-companies in the process, Amazon survived, and grew on past the bubble burst to become a huge player in online sales. It finally turned its first profit in the fourth quarter of 2001: $5 million (i.e., 1¢ per share), on revenues of more than $1 billion. This profit margin, though extremely modest, proved to skeptics that Bezos’ unconventional business model could succeed. In 1999, Time magazine named Bezos the Person of the Year, recognizing the company’s success in popularizing online shopping.
Barnes & Noble sued Amazon on May 12, 1997, alleging that Amazon’s claim to be “the world’s largest bookstore” was false. Barnes and Noble asserted, “[It] isn’t a bookstore at all. It’s a book broker.” The suit was later settled out of court, and Amazon continued to make the same claim. Walmart sued Amazon on October 16, 1998, alleging that Amazon had stolen Walmart’s trade secrets by hiring former Walmart executives. Although this suit was also settled out of court, it caused Amazon to implement internal restrictions and the reassignment of the former Walmart executives.”

“I’m stating that governments and lobbyists for corporations eliminated the living wage, necessitating women enter the workforce en-mass, further depressing wages and doubling the taxation base.
It also destroyed the last piece of social leverage men had, giving impetus to second wave feminism and breaking down the family unit, making atomised individuals more dependent on big government.
But you can fixate on minimum wages like good libertarian goys if you want.”
“I had forgotten what it was like, in a “prestigious” academic institution, and other places where people have large heads, feel the need to “qualify themselves” and explain why they are so important and qualified to INTRODUCE someone who is speaking. I have always seen this as pointless, and self indulgent, as no-one needs to be vetted and qualified, to tell people that someone else in will be on the stage in 20 seconds who knows infinitely more than they do. It seems even worse now than it was 20 years ago when I hastily left this world, due to this type of thing. It is nothing more than people making a name for themselves, by building a beautiful pile of bullshit, coated in the gold from other peoples knowledge and hard work. They have made great lives from themselves, by learning how to speak to a group, finding ways to credit themselves for the achievements of others, and most importantly, finding ways for people to remember their name. People remembering their name, and associating it with something like this (Associations from this alone are U.C., Harvard, Jason Scott, and others), which will in turn get them into another door to speak about something else they are not truly qualified for. It is a common con in the academic and political world, and makes people millions, for doing NOTHING but telling other people about the person they came to listen to. I have no respect for these people, because they did nothing to deserve it that isn’t an illusion or manipulation.”
“Women are like if the Scottish were a gender. English people think of Newton as a physicist and Darwin as a biologist. They do not typically think of Newton as an “English physicist” or Darwin as an “English biologist”. In contrast Maxwell wasn’t a great physicist, he was “a great Scottish physicist.” If Newton were Scottish we would never hear the end of it. I think women are the same. Someone can never just be a great person who happens to be a women, they are always a “great woman.””
“366. Marxist thought is utterly obsessed with “the means of production” in much the same way that Austrian economists are utterly obsessed with the “original” appropriation of “unclaimed” resources (as if in a universe of flux there could ever be any truly “original” act or any object whatsoever that’s really “unclaimed”). What is unworthy in both of them is that they see the starting point, the very beginning of human happiness and prosperity, in something that exists OUTSIDE the individual, whereas in reality everything good and valuable about human life begins inside the brain (with an idea), in the absence of which no amount of “means of production” or “unclaimed resources” could have the slightest positive effect on the life of an individual who is so lacking (quite apart from the fact that “means of production” and “unclaimed” resources are anyway created by the brain). But this is typical of the mind that has been trained to think only in economic terms, treating only of what occurs BETWEEN individuals, and completely ignoring what, while the exchange is taking place, is happening INSIDE them.”
“I did examine myself,” he said. “Solitude did increase my perception. But here’s the tricky thing—when I applied my increased perception to myself, I lost my identity. With no audience, no one to perform for, I was just there. There was no need to define myself; I became irrelevant. The moon was the minute hand, the seasons the hour hand. I didn’t even have a name. I never felt lonely. To put it romantically: I was completely free.”

“People *say* testing is easy. Experience shows it is not. I had one case where we found the root cause of problems was that people were simply burned out. Management was very much not interested. End result: both of the important customers very angry, most programmers burned out, entire division “reorganized” by firing most and moving some, while management got promotion.
This is a world where Dilbert lives.”
“This shows two things. First, Hitler and Nazism are wildly popular whenever given a chance. And second, the Jew fear it more than anything.
Those who say we have to avoid talking about Hitler, Nazism and Mein Kampf in order to push our message are clearly delusional.

Talk about Hitler? It’s annuda shoah!”

This equates to a PROPAGANDA device.

The second form of woman logic is nominalism. Men are not taller than women because what about acromegalic Susanne?
Combining the forms, we get: no man must ever hit a woman under any circumstance/ women must be allowed to serve in army and attend military academies/ women must never be drafted.
Woman logic. And no, I don’t think that women participate in morality in a Platonic sense, even if they are inclined to nurture or in some cases, empathy. Principle is alien to them unless they are raised in strongly patriarchal societies.”

“Japan does currently have a labor shortage. This means, that from now on all wages of Japanese workers are going to rise – a welcome situation” he said. “But during this stage, if we start taking in foreign workers, our real wages will undoubtedly be suppressed. When our workers are forced to compete with the low wages of Chinese workers, real wages will fall, and Chinese will keep flooding in.””

“We’ve had this “conversation” about gun control now several times per year every year for the last decade and a half or so. The result is always the same. We tell you to fuck off and then you come back with the same shit as soon as you can find another incident to shoehorn into the same faulty narratives. It’s getting tiresome.
Look I’m not even saying “commonsense gun control” is completely senseless. Maybe there are some gains that could be picked up here and there. But:
1) Life is tradeoffs. Gains from gun control, in safety say, have to be balanced against the losses, such as in government accountability.
2) “If it saves even one child” is a retarded argument. Thousands of children die in car accidents. While we take some measures to reduce the number, nobody is really looking to ban cars or even reduce access to them. It’s a risk we accept, in exchange for the benefits.
3) The tradeoff between guns rights and safety is not so simple and straight forward as your camp maintains. There’s a complex relationship which also includes defensive uses of guns. But your talking heads straight up lie about the statistics (like the infamous “bullshit ratio” of 42:1)
4) None of y’all know the first thing about guns.
5) None of y’all know the first thing about the current law.
6) Gun violence, along with violence more generally, has been declining for 20 years. So called “assault weapons” account for a tiny fraction of gun violence. Mass shooting account for still less.
7) The main motivation for this “assault weapon” nonsense seems to be disarming political rivals. (That would be me.)
8) Strict gun control does not prevent Islamic terrorism in Europe or anywhere else. Can anyone say “box cutters?”
9) Guns are the right’s veto and that’s why we’re never ever, never ever, never ever, giving them up. The only reason anyone wants us to give them up is because the want to do stuff to us that they know we would object to.
Therefore, fuck off. The guns are not negotiable. Every time this issue comes up, we get closer to civil war. If you ever get your ban, you will get civil war, which we will win because we have the guns.
We don’t accept your arguments, and we don’t accept your dishonest framing of the entire issue.
We’re keeping the guns.”

Be able to interview an NRA member without scorn or derision.”
“The Jews have spread the unspeakably destructive idea of “universalism,” “one-worldism”–one mob of raceless, stateless, and atomized individuals–as the supreme idea of mankind.
Even the conservatives have been suckered into paying lip service to this same unnatural, fragmented, superindividualistic, JEWISH disease of society.
We are told by the Jews that the Law of BIOLOGICAL INTEGRITY (love inside, hate outside) is “racism”–the “ultimate evil” of all time! We are told that if we do not love Yellow men, Black men–and especially Jews–as much as our own people, then we are vicious, perverted, and doomed–we are “racists.” Millions of pitiful white suckers believe that Jewish lie!
We are told that the Law of TERRITORY (private property) is an UN-natural greed, and that decent men must wish to share everything and have no desire for their own private property. They call this “Marxist socialism,” “Communism,” and various other names indicating a concern for “society” and “community”–but all of them strike at the heart of the most powerful and only motivation in living creatures: to build, create, and produce. Millions believe these Jew liars.
We are told by the Jews that the Law of LEADERSHIP (rule of the best) is “dictatorship,” and that we must strive for “democracy” (rule by mobs). Millions of White Aryans have been suckered into believing this siren song of “democracy,” until mobs of human garbage are now terrorizing our whole nation.
We are told by the Jews that the Law of STATUS (the establishment of the natural order of ability of each person in his right place) is “class exploitation” and that the natural leaders of a society–those who have been successful–must be smashed and murdered by those who have not. Whole nations full of good White Aryans have been suckered with this vile Jewish method of dividing and conquering our people through class warfare.
Finally, we are told by these ever-loving Jews that the specialization of women in child-rearing is a beastly enslavement of our females, that women are intended to be judges, locomotive engineers, army officers, and business executives. The result, of course, is the growing destruction of that sacred and beautiful institution of all healthy civilizations, motherhood, and with it the home and the family. Our entire Western world has fallen for this “democratic” Jewish swindle, which has made women the most pitiful victims of the Jewish disease. Millions of “modern” women are hopelessly lost, frustrated, and utterly miserable, even while they are squawking about more “rights” through loudspeakers and marching around in hell-raising, militant, political organizations. Meanwhile, millions of families are without warm, wonderful mothers, and homes are becoming more like luxurious jails than the miracles of love and warmth that were the homes of a century before.”
“Women are strong! That’s why they need feminism to make sure:
No one judges their bodies.

No one mentions traditional gender roles ever.
People don’t assume they identify as women.
Men don’t say anything negative about women ever.
No one shames them for any of their choices.
No one buys them pink toys when they’re girls.
Pictures of “beautiful” women are never printed.”

“What so-called “gender nonconforming” individuals don’t understand is there is literally no reason for normal people to cater to them, to accomodate them, even to tolerate them. We have a schema that works for us, it works for the vast majority of us, and it would work for even more, if it were *normative,* if we could enforce it.
There is no reason for us to even go to the trouble of learning new pronouns, let alone building new bathrooms, to humor a tiny fraction of attention-seeking deviants. We don’t need their cooperation, we don’t need their good will, we don’t need them. What have they ever done for us? What could they ever? But the cost they seek to impose is actually far greater than that. For they seek to indoctrinate normal people’s children with their mental illness.
People normally make a substantial investment in their children. And one of the things they (quite reasonably) expect in return is grandchildren.
But if you tell them they can’t raise their children according to norms and expectations likely to see their line survive to the 3rd generation, but must raise them, or permit them to be raised, according to expectations calculated to make them fruitless and dysfunctional, then there is no punishment, no retaliation, too great, for what you are attempting to do; and no means that are unwarranted, if they should prove necessary or helpful in stopping you.”

“A large group of Russian soldiers in the border area in 1939 are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a small hill:”One Finnish soldier is better than ten Russian”. The Russian commander quickly orders 10 of his best men over the hill where Upon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence. The voice once again calls out: “One Finn is better than one hundred Russian.”Furious, the Russian commander sends his next best 100 troops over the hill and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again Silence. The calm Finnish voice calls out again: “One Finn is better than one thousand Russian.” The enraged Russian commander musters 1000 fighters and sends them to the other side of the hill. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades, rockets and cannon fire ring out as a terrible battle is fought… Then silence. Eventually one badly wounded Russian fighter crawls back over the hill and with his dying words tells his commander,
“Don’t send any more men…it’s a trap. There’s two of them.””
“As I’ve said before, Universalism is intuitive morality, but it is also very straightforward and logical. In this way, it has the same ideological advantage enjoyed by Libertarianism, but it is also much more nimble than Libertarianism because it is not so dependent on the validity of a particular model, or for that matter, particulars of any kind. It is such a devastatingly powerful ideology that it will always have deep believers. (I believe labeling Liberalism/Universalism a “simplistic morality” is a good talking-point, but I have no illusions that this is some magic bullet.) ”

“On Sunday June 26th, GSS, the California affiliate of the Traditionalist Worker Party, will be marching in the city of Sacramento to protest against globalization and in defense of the right to free expression. The state’s Marxist paramilitary groups and local gang members have vowed to stop the march through violence, and because of the mass subsidization of these groups by Non-Governmental Organizations in California, we are estimating that their mob may outnumber our men up to 10 to 1.
After carefully weighing the pros and cons, we have decided that this would be our Thermopylae, no matter what it costs or what it takes the march will go on! After witnessing the brutal assaults these cowards, drug addicts, illegal immigrants and criminals committed in orchestrated pogroms by Zionist agitated colored people against elderly people, women, children, and even the disabled at Donald Trump events throughout the Golden State, we concluded that it was time to use this rally to make a statement about the precarious situation our race is in. With our folk on the brink of becoming a disarmed, disengaged, and disenfranchised minority, the time to do something was yesterday!”

“Yesterday I found out the hard way that Utah taxes people based on the year of their car and not the calculated impact of the vehicle. I tried to figure out why. The answer I got was basically people with newer cars have more money and the money doesn’t actually go towards fixing anything. It’s just another source of income. 70% goes to education which is fine, but that still doesn’t account for the economic impact of each vehicle. Poor guy with small 50mpg newer car bought to replace a giant old gas guzzler is punished.
So not only does registration not go towards anything infrastructure-related, it’s a progressive tax based on the idea that having a newer car means you can afford the big increase. Absolutely retarded logic.”

“Building parking places and auctioning off their use is a productive activity that increases the supply of parking spaces to meet demand. Profit is, in this case, both the signal that guides production and the incentive to be productive.
But monopolizing common parking spaces and demanding payment to move is not a productive behavior, it is theft of commons and free-riding. The profit one may earn doing this is neither an incentive to increase the supply of parking spaces nor a reward for doing so, it is simply taking of what is already there from those who are already using it.
If the whole reason you are in a parking spot is so that you can charge someone to move then you are not simply offering to find and sell information, you are the cause of it. People who manufacture bad news in the hopes that someone will pay them to stop are appropriately regarded as knaves.”
“It’s a little known fact, that grizzly bears and polar bears can produce viable offspring. But there is no long term population of these hybrids because there is no evolutionary niche they fill better than either parent species. There is no environment to which they are better adapted than those parent species.
So if you have mixed children who can’t compete as well with non-mixed peers, even if they carry your genes, then your genes will diminish in frequency with each generation, relative to choosing a more similar mate. Small disadvantages magnify over time.
For the sake of completeness, it’s worth noting that there are *potential* advantages to mixing. Acquiring novel, beneficial, traits from foreign populations and building stronger combinations of traits, for example. But this is unlikely to happen right off the bat, since there is a high degree of randomness involved. Some degree of selection, natural or artificial, will be needed for some number of generations to produce this result, particularly in a form that breeds true. And this greatly diminishes the practical utility and moral defensibility of this course.”
“I really hate environmentalists. They do more far harm than good with their high-emotion, zero-information campaigns and since they’re “the good guys” nothing they do ever has easily predictable bad consequences.
Case study: Back in 2003 the US Army Corps of Engineers and SFWMD realized that all the river restoration they were doing along the Kissimmee River was going to cause millions of acre-feet of water to overflow the levees of Lake Okeechobee, which would have been catastrophic. So their options were: controlled release of water contaminated by phosphates (causes algae blooms; bad); or build a catchment area to hold runoff from the rainy season until it can be absorbed naturally (good). Well of course environmentalists, knowing absolutely dick about water management but convinced they knew more than professional engineers, surveyors and hydrologists, decided to block the construction of the riparian wetland. Yay! Go team! We did it!
Well, fast forward to 2016. It’s the wettest spring in 20 years in South Florida and just as engineers predicted would happen, Okeechobee’s levees were about to overflow or break. Since environmentalists blocked the only low-impact solution, they must release enough overflow to cover Delaware in 2 feet of water or else thousands of homes would be destroyed by the flooding. The effect? Massive algae blooms the likes of which haven’t been seen since the 70s. Again, exactly as engineers predicted would happen if the catchment basin was not built.
So what do environmentalists do? Accept that their opposition to the catchment basin was purely emotional and had no scientific basis? No. Reverse their opinion and campaign for the construction of the basin? Nope. Tell people that algae blooms are a side effect they’re going to have to deal with because they opposed the basin? HAH! Nope.
They blame the US Army Corps of Engineers and SFWMD, who predicted this 13 years ago and devised a solution, which the environmentalists blocked.
This is why I don’t give a fuck what activists think about anything. Experience has shown me that activists tend to fall into Dunnig-Kruger territory the vast majority of the time, believing themselves experts in things they barely understand and have little more than passing interest in. Experience has also shown me that they will blatantly ignore the advice and consultation of experts and scientists they disagree with, while positioning art majors as “experts” in fields of science they have no business speaking about. Lastly, experience has repeatedly shown me that their interest lasts only as long as the hashtag is trending and they will completely forget about the issue in a matter of weeks, only to turn around and blame the people they opposed for not doing the thing that would have worked the first time.
As a group, they are overwhelmingly regressive and cling to the idea that they are going to be vindicated by history when the last 50 years of environmental activism has been a hundred trivial successes patched over a half dozen colossal failures. When they’ve completely ruined everything with their rebel-without-a-cause schtick, they’ll simply blame “the man” and go around trying to get people to put 6 tons of soil on their non-structural roofing because plants and stuff man or cover their Seattle front yard with solar panels because freaking solar panels man.”
“The rebellion against the “experts” that we are witnessing can be simplified: experts in some domains like economics, political science, policymaking are not experts. But we know why:
PRINCIPLE: it is easier to macrobullshit than microbullshit.
So your car mechanic, sushi chef, house painter, espresso machine repairperson, plumber, barber, dentist, Apple genius bar attendant, sanitation engineer, translator of Greco-Aramaic texts, guitar player, …, these are, to some degree, experts.
Mixing this with the concept of skin-in-the-game and the idea of complexity, we can build political structures that are immune to expert problems.”

“Over 30,000 emails relating to the Clinton Foundation were purged from the records she turned into state, but the FBI was able to recover more than 20% of that. Aside from the classified information, which is enough to roast her personally, they recovered thousands of emails to, from and about all these people and their global money laundering network. The Clinton Foundation has been implicated in dozens of money laundering schemes over the years and even caught red-handed once during Bush’s administration (it quietly went away). Four out of ten members of the Clinton Foundation board have been found guilty of wire fraud, money laundering, or conspiracy to commit same and all of them have long-standing connections to foreign dictators who wish to store their plundered billions in overseas banks and Western companies, or those same companies who want to “encourage” said dictators to open up their country to some business prospect.

Hillary Clinton is the first person I can find record of in the last 24 hours who knowingly mishandled Top Secret and TS-NOFORN information who did not spend a single minute in Federal Circuit Court answering questions like “how do you plea?”. They chased Snowden to the ends of the Earth for leaking *unclassified* information and charged him with the exact same crime- mishandling classified information.
After years of the government insisting they were going to stop cracking down on whistleblowers, and instead cracking down on them *harder*, they finally decide to go easy on someone not because they were acting morally- no, instead they went easy on her because she was chosen to win 2016 in November 2008.”
“Somehow the Remain camp has managed to portray Europe as a bastion of free trade and so the Leave voters are enemies of free trade. Let’s analyze this.
Leave says “Even though I am not in the same political entity with my consumers, I want to be able to freely trade with them.”
Europe says “If you want to trade with us without having high tariffs, you must join our political entity.”
Now what do you call the principle that people should be able to trade without needing to exist under the same political entity? Free Trade.
Europe is the enemy of free trade.”
“It has always been odd to me that no one else finds it at all odd that “anti-semitism” is a well-accepted term. No other discrimination ever has specifics. Hate blacks? “Racist”. Hate women? “Sexist”. But for some reason, hating Jews gets its own word? What is that reason?
And these people talk about hate like it’s literally a weather condition, like they’ve been reading too much into their own shit wording “political climate” etc. No, there couldn’t possibly be a reason why people hate Jews, it’s the weather, you can’t explain it.
Except these guys are also the ones talking about global warming all the time, and we know the cause of that. So obviously there’s a reason for change in politics as well. Since they don’t bother to look into the reason for a 114% rise in hating kikes between 2014 and 2015 (imagine if temperatures rose 114% in one year?), I’ll tell you:
Cause of anti-semitism is the actions and words of semites.”

[…] The things I’m telling you now, where did I hear them from, what book did I read them in? Is it true? It feels that all these ideas are shattered pieces, I have no confidence to say I’ve experienced it myself […] When did I start piloting planes? When did I start killing people? What am I doing this for? When did I become like this? Every night I would try to recall. But I couldn’t recall. I can’t ever recall.

“A mob drags a man into a police station for running over 13 people, while shouting “Murderer!” “Killer ” The policeman disperses the crowd and begins to interrogate the suspect.
The policeman :” Tell me what happened. ”
The suspect :” Sir I was driving home within the speed limit when my brakes failed. I had no choice but to crash the car into a group of 12 people or to swerve into a single person. Am I a monster for deciding to swerve into the single person? ”
Policeman :” No, that sounds like a difficult yet reasonable decision. But tell me how did you end up killing 13 people? ”
Suspect :” Well that selfish guy ran towards the other 12.””
“Leave without notice and start working the next day at your new job:
Result: Guaranteed no lost income
Leave with two weeks notice:
Result #1: Company fires you on the spot, walks you out and you lose two weeks of income
Result #2: Company keeps you on the payroll the two weeks, no loss of pay
All the risk is yours when you give two weeks notice, you give all the options to the company. When the shoe is on the other foot it is pretty much guaranteed that the company won’t give you two weeks notice that they are going to let you go and few will pay you two weeks even though they’ll walk you out right after telling you that you are fired.
My suggestion is spend a day or two putting together a transition folder, hand it in on the day you quit and wish them the best. Tell them that for security reasons you can’t provide two weeks notice.”

“The fact no one in our government sent in a drone bomb to take out the ranchers during the Bundy Standoff but didn’t hesitate to blow-up Micah Xavier Johnson shows how biased our law enforcement system really is.

“The country has got itself into this murderous fix because its eyes are firmly closed. President Obama mourns that “black folks are more vulnerable to these kinds of [police shooting] incidents.” Now why is that?
Is it because in Pittsburgh blacks are 27 times more like than whites to be arrested for murder and because in Milwaukee they are 25 times more likely to be suspects in non-fatal shootings? Is it because in San Francisco they are up to 10 times more likely than whites to resist arrest? Is it because blacks are five times more likely than non-blacks to kill a police officer? Or is it because a black person is 19 times more likely to kill a police officer than an officer is to kill an unarmed black?
Mr. Obama says that we must “reduce the appearance . . . of racial bias in law enforcement.” So does Miss Wasserman Schultz. Sorry, but that’s impossible. So long as blacks commit crime at vastly higher rates than anyone else, simply stopping and arresting criminals will look like racial bias to them.”

“The moral is, never be sorry for a waiter. Sometimes when you sit in a restaurant, still stuffing yourself half an hour after closing time, you feel that the tired waiter at your side must surely be despising you. But he is not. He is not thinking as he looks at you, ‘What an overfed lout’; he is thinking, ‘One day, when I have saved enough money, I shall be able to imitate that man.’ He is ministering to a kind of pleasure he thoroughly understands and admires. And that is why waiters are seldom Socialists, have no effective trade union, and will work twelve hours a day–they work fifteen hours, seven days a week, in many cafés. They are snobs, and they find the servile nature of their work rather congenial.”
“There’s a bunch of stuff said in this one minute which is neither here nor there, so given the actual operatives, which occur mostly near the end, it could actually be stated as “Racism destroyed in two and a half sentences”. Maybe the rest of the posing and shaming is important, but there’s not much to say to that part except “No, YOU’RE ignorant” so I’ll ignore it. For the stuff that’s actually respondable:
> We hate because we’re taught to hate
It is never specified by who or by what vector. This woman goes on to talk about educators and education, but usually, if you have a problem you try to find both the cause and the causer. That is to say: anyone who isn’t attempting to identify both is out to play you.
It is also false. I’m racist because it’s effective. The purpose of knowledge is to judge quickly and accurately, the ideal of knowledge is to know everything before it happens. I would prefer to know someone is likely to fuck with me before they actually fuck with me. As it turns out, being racist actually improves my accuracy rates quite a bit.
> There is no gene for hate.
It has been shown through experimentation that you prefer to associate with people genetically similar to yourself, with friends across races and backgrounds being similar in some way. It has also been shown throughout history and around the world that people prefer dealing with “their own” rather than with foreigners.
I say this because it’s been defined by communists that “preferring people similar to you” is interchangeable with “hating people who are dissimilar to you”.
> Race is just the amount of pigment in your skin.
I do not know a single racist who believes this.
The only people who I know who believe racists believe that race is a matter of skin pigmentation are people who are against racism.
> Anything that can be learned can be unlearned.
The vanguards of equality in Scandinavia have found that with all the money they pour into feminism and with all the effort they put into changing words and advertising schemes, men still prefer to be engineers and women still prefer to be nurses.
Give them the choice to do what they don’t want to do, and they still won’t do it.
> I’m an educator.
A common title chosen by people who like brainwashing others.”
“[Emma Watson] could earn $100,000 for a charity of her choice, for staying in the Calais migrant camp for one week without bodyguards. The petition is out there. Mike Cernovich has offered to pay. She says they’re all refugees, victims and good people, so I don’t know why she doesn’t?”
“If we ban muslims we don’t have to ban trucks, or guns, or shoes on the airplane, or liquids on the airplane. The only thing imposing these costs is a liberal dogma that says muslims are entitled to receive all the benefits of a civilization they desire, and aim, and act, to destroy.”
“In Germany, which gets the same amount of sunshine as the US state of Alaska and where inexplicably nearly half the solar power output of the world was installed, investment experts expect not a single solar cell company to be in business in five years time, since not one of them is currently showing an operating profit, nor is expected to do so in the foreseeable future. In Germany alone, the government have to date handed out about €100 billion in subsidies to renewable energy and even there, the most fervently green country in Europe, they’ve begun to have some serious doubts. It’s a money pit. The promised green jobs haven’t appeared and unemployment in the developed nations continues to rise. On a world-wide basis, the money wasted runs into the trillions of dollars.
Billions and billions and we’ve ended up with pretty much nothing. Actually, that’s not quite correct. What we will have, within a decade or two, is a clear up job that’ll make Chernobyl look like a training day. As the vast arrays of panels age, they’ll crack and contaminate the topsoil with poisonous chemical particles. Take a careful look at the picture below, because that’s what we’ll have to pay to detoxify, and make no mistake, we’ll be the ones paying, despite a few of the companies installing these panels having given undertakings to dispose of the panels at the end of their service life. The hard-nosed investor in me reckons they’ll be safely bankrupt by the time any such expensive undertakings have to be honoured.
I wonder where we will store all that contaminated topsoil? Perhaps wherever we’d planned to store nuclear waste, before we decided not to build any more nuclear plants. […]
Energy produced from renewables, such as solar power, is at least ten times more expensive than conventional sources, so the only way it can be afforded, is if you heap on various direct and indirect stealth taxes on those conventional sources to subsidise it.
The macroeconomic impact of the resultant rise in energy prices is on enterprise. Once the cost of energy and regulation rises to a certain price point, it’s simply a no brainer to relocate the company to a more business friendly environment, either out-of-state or out-of-country. A classic case is California, where commercial electrical rates are already 50% higher than in any other state in the Union. Because of recently enacted state legislation and the upcoming “California Global Warming Solutions Act”, it’s estimated that an additional hike in energy prices of between 19% to 74%, dependent on your location in California, will occur in the next decade.
Companies have been relocating, in whole or in part, out of California. It’s a bit like the California gold rush of 1849, but in reverse; everyone is getting the hell out of the place. In the first quarter of last year alone, one business relocater counted 70 of these “disinvestment events”, as they’re euphemistically called, and that in a state with a 10.9% unemployment rate and some very severe budgetary problems.
Another effect of this rise in energy prices, is to push more and more ordinary people into what’s now called fuel poverty and as usual, it’s the poor and low wage earners, who are taking the pain. What hard statistics I can find on the number of people now priced into this situation, are quite simply appalling.
The only country, for which I can find official national statistics on fuel poverty, is the UK but whatever country you live in, I imagine the figures might be similar, dependant on your climate and how far your government has gone down the renewable’s rabbit hole.
The UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change’s (DECC) latest report in July 2011, which only gives figures up to 2009, estimated that 18% of UK households were then officially classified as being in fuel poverty. The UK Citizen’s Advice Bureau, again a guesstimate circa 2009, is concerned that 5.5 million people in UK face living in freezing conditions through Winter, because of self-rationing or disconnection. Given the steep jump in domestic power prices over the last three years, the figure must now be well over 25%. When it comes to any of DECC’s numbers, it’s interesting to note that they attribute the increase to several factors, but never once do they mention green taxes, which is why I view even the dire figures supplied by them with some suspicion, as being too conservative.
Mr. Cameron, here we are in the twenty-first century and in a quarter of households in the UK, the people you’re supposed to be responsible for, are having to make stark choices between food and heating as a result of your continuing policies and the policies of your predecessors. And that, in the teeth of the worst recession in living memory. […]
You could at least take your foot off the green taxation pedal and help them out but you won’t though, will you? Saving the planet is simply too important to ever contemplate doing anything like that.”
“Attention-whore Conservatives 4 months ago priming the masses to accept quasi-un-democratic outcome: “OMG Trumptards, quit bitching about how ‘rigged’ the GOP primary system is in Colorado and elsewhere. Parties are independent and private, they can do whatever the fuck they want.”

You know, THAT FUCKING THING THAT THEY USED TO “PROVE” THAT TRUMP WAS A HILLARY AGENT AND A TRAITOR TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY???
What happened to that? Has anybody called these kike slaves out on this or are the fucking goyim just going to let the Chosen Ones get away with sliding another case of death-sentence-worthy hypocrisy down the memory hole?”
“I don’t like Facebook Trending’s way of talking about popular things on the internet as “surfacing”. It feels like a wrong and misleading way to talk about it. Not just the internet, but any information network in general.
The “web” visualization makes a lot of sense, and a “sea” is fine too, as long as the idea is that you’re a fish and not a surfer. “Surfacing” in a “web” is nonsensical; “surfacing” as a fish basically means you’ve been dead for a while. Which is actually correct some of the time, especially when they’re talking about normalfags catching onto memes, but in general it’s not the right word to use, especially not for information that’s on the tip of everyone’s tongues.
“Viral” is overused, but fairly accurate. The operative concept is that an idea has enough penetration to go through multiple number and types of networks at an abnormal speed. Other words that work are “hot” and “electric”; heat and electricity are understood to go through just about everything.
Then again, Trending is trying to become news, and news is about dead fish, so I guess they’re accurate.”

“In this series we’ve had a lot of discussions about whether or not the writers had a plan, if they broke from that plan, or if they needed to plan. Tolkien purportedly didn’t have a hard plan on how Lord of the Rings would be resolved, and his story turned out just fine. Other writers failed spectacularly when working from a plan. The focus on “having a plan” is something of a distraction. The reader generally doesn’t care if the writer spent years planning out their story, or if they came up with each idea thirty seconds before they appeared on the page, as long as it holds together in the end.
What the audience wants is a story that’s not full of contradictions, contrivances, loose plot threads, forced dialog, dumb characters, and sloppy justifications for character actions. I suspect that the more scrupulously you adhere to the rules, the less you need a plan. If you’re willing to let the rules of the world and the personalities of the characters drive the story then you can get away with winging it. But if you want to arrive at some predetermined outcome at a predetermined time – perhaps you have a plot that needs to run for the length of three AAA games, end each game at a logical and satisfying point, and conclude at the end of the third with a resolution to the central conflict – then the sooner you get something passable on the dry-erase board, the lower your chances of ending in failure.
A plan can help a writer achieve this, but it’s not required and it’s no guarantee of success. What matters most is that the author makes a world that holds together.”
“Taunting is a dangerous thing for a villain to do in a game. If the player likes the villain, it can intensify the rivalry. But if they don’t, it instantly creates animosity towards the writer. The player is already aware that the writer is omnipotent within their own story, and it’s generally considered bad form to rub the player’s nose in it. And it’s really bad form if the writer seems to be reveling in that power. Suddenly this isn’t about Shepard vs. Kai Leng, but Player vs. writer.”
“Those who make peaceful deportation impossible make violent execution inevitable.”
“Please just imagine if what the #DNC did was applied to ANYTHING else in this world. Business, gambling, playing poker with your friends, ANYTHING. The fact that #HillaryClinton was caught manipulating the #DemocraticNomination and conspiring with people who were supposed to be neutral observers (Wasserman Schultz et al) AUTOMATICALLY disqualifies her from the nomination. PERIOD. If you get caught cheating in a game of Black Jack it doesn’t matter what your other cards were or wether you might have won even without the card you were trying to roll out from under your sleeve. You being caught cheating automatically makes you lose the game and you’ll probably be kicked out of the casino, if you don’t just have the cops called on you outright as is possible in some jurisdictions.
THIS is how these sorts of things are handled by serious, honest and adult people. You don’t fucking bargain with morally denatured human garbage which doesn’t even have the preliminary basic respect for a process that everybody else is trying to avide by. The mere fact that this DNC situation is even a matter worthy of debate already shows how completely morally bankrupt these people are. And if Hillary wanted to have any sort of support from the #BernieSanders camp, it would be based ENTIRELY on the gratitude and mercy of the Berners. Hillary not even trying to seriously reach out to Bernie Sanders supporters, and in fact expecting them to just shut up and take it just again goes to show her arrogance and I don’t see how any former Sanders supporter with any dignity whatsoever can accept this shit.”

“Also consider kids bring people together like nothing else. Most ancient/arranged marriages meant the husband and wife conquered everything together through their early adulthood. It was their first falling in love, their first pregnancies, everything that was important was shared between them. They didn’t have the one-after-another heartbreak and shattered promises that casually-dating romantic chasers did today. That isn’t to say romantic love is worthless, but statistically speaking arranged marriages in small communities meant you had more realistic lovers with greater emotional stakes in the game.”
Phrase implies that only one dimension needs to be considered.
Phrase also implies that the speaker’s definitions of where moderation ends and extremities begin are the correct ones, or alternatively, that it’s a challenge to anyone else in the room for moral high ground, since whoever defines the line first loses.”

“The problem here is coding. When an author wants to do some quick shorthand for “this character is a racist”, they often reveal it with comments like this. It’s kind of like parents yelling at their kids. In real life, it’s an ordinary thing that happens all the time. In a movie, a parent yelling at their kid is universal screenwriter shorthand for “this person is a horrible parent”. We’re used to picking up on these cues and extrapolating. If a parent yells at their kid in the first five minutes of a movie, we assume we’re being shown the world in its default state. “This parent is ALWAYS yelling at their kids.” I think some people get caught on Ashley’s dialog the same way. “Oh, she’s ALWAYS ranting about aliens.””
“Often when I do this sort of long-form analysis people will respond with “Why are you so angry?” and “Why did you write a book-length tirade about this?” I think this is a side-effect of the common “nerd rage” shtick that some critics do. People see something critical and they just assume it’s supposed to be performed in the voice of a spittle-spewing madman.
But if you look you’ll notice this series isn’t filled with outraged hyperbole, profanity, or personal attacks against the developer. I’m not making demands, claiming that I’ve been wronged, or accusing anyone of fraud. Yes, it’s negative, but it’s not outrage. If your mechanic tells you that your alternator is busted, he’s not saying you have THE WORST CAR EVER and that YOU ARE DUMB FOR OWNING IT. He’s just telling you why it doesn’t work.”
“[S]lave labor is notoriously inefficient, and skilled slave labor is doubly so. They can look extremely busy without getting any work done, and will spend all their time plotting revenge or escape.

“Keep you powder dry and your cyanide handy. The Soviet Union is essentially here on American soil. If you’re not ready to kill every journalist and to deport or quarantine: Muslims, Jews, Blacks, and Mexicans and to nationalize every industry that has used H1B and H2B visas, best to keep that cyanide handy. How comfortable do you feel, today, in saying that you support Trump? That’s the index of totalitarianism. While you still can, read some accounts of Jewish rule, starting with Israel.

“Albert Einstein (1879 -1955), Time Magazine’s “Person of the Century”, wrote a long treatise on special relativity theory (it was actually called “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”, 1905a), without listing any references. […]
The most recognizable equation of all time is E = mc2.
It is attributed by convention to be the sole province of Albert Einstein (1905).
However, the conversion of matter into energy and energy into matter was known to Sir Isaac Newton (“Gross bodies and light are convertible into one another…”, 1704). The equation can be attributed to S. Tolver Preston (1875), to Jules Henri Poincaré (1900; according to Brown, 1967) and to Olinto De Pretto (1904) before Einstein. Since Einstein never correctly derived E = mc2 (Ives, 1952), there appears nothing to connect the equation with anything original by Einstein.”
