“No matter how you slice it normies are the greatest plague upon mankind. Sure, some political systems will function better than others but a good chunk of the problems regarding the use of power is reducible to normieism. Even anarchists won’t be able to avoid their communes from degenerating into chimp-like social states where the cheiftan has obtained “power” through social prowess rather than pure merit.
When a machiavellian type climbs the ladder to become a leader of an organization this individual has likely obtained the position by wooing dumb normie cattle. An instance of this are cults and their leaders. People say that cultists are more intelligent but I suspect that the more intelligent cultists adhere to an ideology that is more focused on extremes of a given belief whereas the dumb cultists are part of cults that are focused on spiritual finding, self-help, and psychology. This is why cults like scientology and NXIVM target the actor demographic (hyper-normies) who have no sense of self-awareness or any higher level rational introspective ability to speak of so they will fall in line with a guru that could do it for them and give them an emotional anchor. Normies barely have any ability to rationalize their condition and surroundings so the world looks like a chaotic malevolent storm to them but they insist that they have influence on the state of affairs.
It follows that business hierarchies and politics works similarily albeit with some checks and balances from people who aren’t retarded. With regards to politics most people don’t hold political views, they are literally incoherent normie grunts based on personality types so any appeal to the person rather than the ideology has an advantage whenever you have majoritarian systems.
In some ways I find it hard to hate the psychopathic/narcissistic types because these people often don’t think too much themselves, they don’t really care, and are just in it for the ride and normies just hand them all the power because it makes the normie feel good inside when the psycho/narc tells them good things.
It think the solution to this is to either limit political franchise, appeal and lie to normies to get what you want, or obtain so much power that you can just crush them.”
“As part of their Wizard research, the Air Force had developed a formula that compared the cost of an ICBM to the ABM needed to shoot it down. The formula, later known as the cost-exchange ratio, could be expressed as a dollar figure; if the cost of the ICBM was less than that figure, the economic advantage was in favor of the offense – they could build more ICBMs for less money than the ABMs needed to shoot them down. A variety of scenarios demonstrated that it was almost always the case that the offense had the advantage. The Air Force ignored this inconvenient problem while they were still working on Wizard, but as soon as the Army was handed sole control of the ABM efforts, they immediately submitted it to McElroy.”

Before they had to make up these convuluted rationalizations about how even the guys in their matching bracket of attractiveness weren’t good enough for them. “Oh, he has a weird vibe”, “he’s creepy”, “he isn’t confident” or whatever the fuck. Now they can just point at those dangerous evil terrorist incels to convince themselves that anyone but the most handsome studs must be morally reprehensible and bad people by definition.”

“truth doesnt exist. thats the thing. truth is a dumb dude who thinks hes entitled to something because he was nice. thats why when nietzsche asked what if truth is actually a woman, he was saying that the truth is not static, but it dances around, it is a fickle thing, a thing of many colors, a changing thing, and that because philosophers have sought truth like they have, by going directly to “the truth” and trying to analyze and rationalize, they have missed the heart of truth altogether. they dont know how to romance a woman, just like they dont know how to romance the truth. the truth is power. power itself is the truth. if a man says “fuck the truth, i am the fucking truth”, women are like, omg im wet. squirt. so basically truth is in reality a creative endeavor to be, a will to power. the story doesnt contain the truth inside, but it is the truth itself”

“If you make adults do pointless work, it is considered torture. E.g. if you make someone dig a ditch with a shovel, and fill it back up right in front of them with a bulldozer, it’s obviously intentional humiliation.

“Sex is part of the social contract that motivates men to cooperate with a society, follow its rules, preserve it from invaders, and not to invade it themselves.”
“Work is only endurable when purposefully sacrificial, and to rob it of sacrificial purpose is to turn it into slavery.
When everyone’s working out of duty, everyone’s winning (in a way); when everyone’s playing life to win, almost everyone’s losing, and working for the winners.
No intelligent person can feel their labour dignified solely by the chance to partake in a rigged game. A man without great prospects can endure drudgery nobly to feed his family, serve his community, and do his duty to his nation; nobody can do it just for a chance at ‘success’.”
“All this incel malarkey just illustrates that for many women, it’s not enough to just not fuck you and leave it at that. No, if they don’t want to fuck you, you shouldn’t even exist. And that’s not just a passive sentiment but an extremely active one. And if they can’t rub you out they have to rub it in. It’s solipsism and self-centeredness (and malice) to an almost unimaginable degree. Another object lesson in why women have historically never been in charge (and had better never be…)”

“Railways are conservative, in Britain especially, because we invented them and they are ideally suited to our landscape. They are conservative because they help to conserve the countryside, and because they are, when well run, a disciplined service requiring loyalty and dedication from their workers, not unlike the armed forces. They are conservative because they can be made to rely on national sources of energy, since electricity can be produced by nuclear reactors, coal or even waves. They are conservative because, by giving a centre to towns and cities, they promote cohesion and discourage shapeless ribbon development and the atomisation of society which follows when everyone relies on the car for transport.
Car,s on the other hand, encourage globalism in culture and economics, force us into dependency on oil states and therefore influence our foreign policy in unconservative directions, radically reshape cities and countryside, marginalise the old who cannot afford to run them, break up established communities by their greed for land and by the way in which modern roads act as impassable barriers.

Both the commies and the capitalists are two pieces of bread in a jewish sandwich of atomizing people and turning them into economic units as slave to the economy and not the economy as servant of nation, reducing the role of family, and increasing production and consumption to unsustainable ends. They want you as laborer, not as spiritual being with a sum greater than its parts, especially when united as a greater family (nation). […]
It worked pretty similarly to indentured servitude if the person was unable to pay their debts on time. If they defaulted on the debts, the (((banks))) would offer the resident farmer/rancher the option to stay on the land and work it off, giving a percentage of the production to the banks meanwhile, which was an early form of debt slavery and interest. So they would get the full value of the land plus what had been paid to them already, plus interest.
What ended up happening is the banks owned way the fuck too much land in fertile regions and people were forced to enter into unsustainable contracts as the land was scarce by now, or hope to find work on a large homestead. Either way, the (((bankers))) were living better than kings and controlled nearly everything with zero net returns to the people. They, or foreign agents, could then leverage local satraps to rebel or cut ties with the empire when those municipalities were needed in times of war to change the outcome.
Guess what? Same fucking thing happening in the modern world.”

“The thing about incels isn’t that they can’t get laid. It’s that they dare to protest about it.
[…] the problem that normies have with incels is not that they are losers for not getting laid. The problem is that they organize, that they gave themselves a name. That they have class-consciousness of a sort. Liberal states have “freedom of association” in their constitutions as a relic of the time they were fighting the old monarchies which wouldn’t give it to them. And they wouldn’t give it to them because “associations” are a hidden-in-sight form of political conspiracy, and any state which wants to survive doesn’t admit political conspiracies. Try to gather 50 people in public in China and see how long it takes for police to ask what the hell you’re doing.
Of course liberal states, i.e. Western states have freedom of association as a symbol of their revolution against the old order; but they aren’t stupid. They don’t really allow freedom of association. Ask Roosh what happened when he tried to organize a meetup of right-wingish PUAs. Ask any club or association of size that denies access to women; or accepts only white men. The liberal state understands that only white men are potentially disloyal, and so any association of white men is illegal de facto.”
“[A] shortcut to understand Bioleninism is “a coalition of people who don’t want high school jocks to rule the world”. Which is the natural state of mankind, for better or worse. I wasn’t a high school jock, but as a white man I’d rather they rule than the girls rule, so I am not Bioleninist. For the more awkward nerds in class though, they probably prefer the girls rule, out of some extremely misguided hope that the girls will be somewhat nicer to them. That’s the vibe I get from Scott Alexander.
Or maybe it’s just that nerds are awkward, know they are powerless, and so tend to obey whoever is in power, and since Bioleninism advanced after the 1960s nerds have just bent the knee and dropped to the floor and kissed the feet of Women and Africans and Muslims and whoever the fuck they’re told to kiss. That’s the vibe I get from Scott Aaronson.”
“You might have heard about “women in tech”; i.e. women trying to get nerds out of tech. Nerds protest. “We were here first! We built this from scratch!”. Yeah whatever. There’s money to be made, so women want in. Then they saw nerds there, and they can’t help their instincts. Nerds must go. Women just won’t live close to them; the same way humans don’t like living close to snakes or rats. That getting rid of the nerds would destroy the whole ecosystem is secondary. When tech collapses after women chase the nerds away, women will just migrate to somewhere else, as if nothing had happened.”
“Well, what is best in life for women? What do women do when they have all the power? What is the female equivalent of Gengis Khan. We are finding out lately. It includes, obviously, complete privileges in every area of life for women. These two recent tweets were very illuminating. One complains that 19% of journalists killed were women. The other that 1 in 4 homeless are women.
Well, say cucks, that means 81% of journalists killed were men! And 75% of homeless were men! What the hell are women complaining about? Well obviously they complain that there is even a single women being victimized, when it should be 0! When an Englishmen said that 10% of victims at something in colonial India were Englishmen, he was right to complain. We fucking rule this place, why should even a single of us have a rough time? That’s what Indians are for. Well that’s how women think. We are women; why should a single women have trouble? That’s what men are for! There is no irony in this. It is only the cold logic of power.”
“A PUA is a man who pretends he has what a woman pretends she does not want.”
“Robin Hanson got screeching calls to lock him up when he suggested that men with no access to women perhaps have good reason for being upset. Seems to me he doesn’t understand how hypergamy works. He was accused of promoting rape and slavery. Which he denied of course, but feminists had a point.
Women want hypergamy.
For a woman to sleep with a man below the top 20% is by definition not consensual sex. It is thus rape. For a woman to work for or live with a man below the top 20% is by definition not consensual work. It is thus slavery. This is no joke.“
“‘Jocks’ and ‘nerds’ are degenerated moderns. Thucydides for example wasn’t a ‘jock’ – he was a warrior, philosopher, and man of action. A ‘jock’ is a cretin who has no inner life and who values games and material trappings of victory in superfluous games over anything else. The historical fascimile of a jock would be a dimwitted gladiator who cares for nothing other than wine, gold, the favor of women, and shouts of approval from plebes when he kills opponents in staged spectacles. A general of arms has nothing in common with such a man.
Similarly, a ‘nerd’ is a managerial technocrat who is incapable of thinking in terms of total systems as he is stubbornly oblivious to nuance and non-utilitarian measures of value. A nerd can only exist in a technological state that places a premium on specialization and quantity – Aquinas, for example, had nothing in common with the modern nerd; the ‘nerd’ is best exemplified by Robert MacNamara or Bill Gates. Nerds are enemies of philosophy, not its stewards.”
“Why have men acquiesced so much in giving women the upper hand in society’s institutions? It falls to men to create society (because women almost never create large organizations or cultural systems). It seems foolish and self-defeating for men then to meekly surrender advantageous treatment in all these institutions to women. Moreover, despite many individual exceptions, in general and on average men work harder at their jobs in these institutions than women, thereby enabling men to rise to the top ranks. As a result, women continue to earn less money and have lower status than men, which paradoxically is interpreted to mean that women’s preferential treatment should be continued and possibly increased (see review of much evidence in Baumeister 2010). Modern society is not far from embracing explicit policies of “equal pay for less work,” as one of us recently proposed. Regardless of that prospect, it appears that preferential treatment of women throughout the workforce is likely to be fairly permanent. Because of women’s lesser motivation and ambition, they will likely never equal men in achievement, and their lesser attainment is politically taken as evidence of the need to continue and possibly increase preferential treatment for them.”
“Today most schools, universities, corporations, scientific organizations, governments, and many other institutions have explicit policies to protect and promote women. It is standard practice to hire or promote a woman ahead of an equally qualified man. Most large organizations have policies and watchdogs that safeguard women’s interests and ensure that women gain preferential treatment over men. Parallel policies or structures to protect men’s interests are largely nonexistent and in many cases are explicitly prohibited. Legal scholars, for example, point out that any major new law is carefully scrutinized by feminist legal scholars who quickly criticize any aspect that could be problematic or disadvantageous to women, and so all new laws are women-friendly. Nobody looks out for men, and so the structural changes favoring women and disadvantaging men have accelerated (Baumeister and Vohs 2004).”
“All of this is a bit ironic, in historical context. The large institutions have almost all been created by men. The notion that women were deliberately oppressed by being excluded from these institutions requires an artful, selective, and motivated way of looking at them. Even today, the women’s movement has been a story of women demanding places and preferential treatment in the organizational and institutional structures that men create, rather than women creating organizations and institutions themselves. Almost certainly, this reflects one of the basic motivational differences between men and women, which is that female sociality is focused heavily on one-to-one relationships, whereas male sociality extends to larger groups networks of shallower relationships (e.g., Baumeister and Sommer 1997; Baumeister 2010). Crudely put, women hardly ever create large organizations or social systems. That fact can explain most of the history of gender relations, in which the gender near equality of prehistorical societies was gradually replaced by progressive inequality—not because men banded together to oppress women, but because cultural progress arose from the men’s sphere with its large networks of shallow relationships, while the women’s sphere remained stagnant because its social structure emphasized intense one-to-one relationships to the near exclusion of all else (see Baumeister 2010). All over the world and throughout history (and prehistory), the contribution of large groups of women to cultural progress has been vanishingly small.” In fact, large groups of women–unless checked by male authority–tend to ruin vital institutions: as happened in academia, as it were.”
“Great writers are most valuable to other great writers, for whom they are generative. What does it matter to a great writer if there won’t be a Nobel Prize this year?

“Of course throwing words like “totalitarianism” around means little, and it’s not like this broad knows what totalitarianism is about, being a “sociologist” her job is not to read books. She’s a political commissar, and as such her work does have value. Japanese education indeed has been moving right in the recent years. A couple decades, perhaps. And that is worrying if you work for the Left. It’s her job to worry about losing power. Well, it’s everyone’s job. I can’t think of any human trait more universal than worrying about losing power.”
“It is of paramount importance to dispel the fiction that the Left and Right are both equal forces, armies fighting for their respective causes which are different in content but generally equivalent in size and culture. No, that’s not how it works. There are no causes. There is only power. The Left is where the people who want (more) power flock to, and their ideas are contingent to that ultimate purpose. The Right are the people who do not want more power, either because they have some already or because they’re just not into it. Risk-averse, perhaps. Whatever ideas people in the Right believe in are contingent to that ultimate purpose. To put it in military terms. Doctrines change. Strategies change. Weapons change. But the basic nature of war is universal.”

“Come on man! Don’t you know that while there is life, there is hope? I understand your disdain for death by a thousand cuts and the honor in a quick death, but still. Is it really that bad?

I would never count the Japanese out.
If there is someone richly deserving of your contempt, it is the Hindus and their long drawn out slow decline starting with the first Islamic invasion in 668 A.D. That coupled with their stubborn refusal to learn about the nature of Islam, their endless virtue signaling culminating in the deification of Gandhi should win them the Darwin awards for every year starting now.

“For the Hindus you will forgive me but I have no strong feelings one way or the other. With the Japanese though I have lived many many years.

Once the American empire in the Pacific dies, and it will die at some point; Japan is then just some island in the edge of Asia with no resources and no plausible way of defending itself.
Japan cannot be independent, one way or the other. It’s choice is to subject itself to a decaying and increasingly evil US, or to a rising but rather vindictive and still poor China. And it must take this choice while undergoing the worst demographic crisis of any nation in modern history.
It is that bad. Modernity has destroyed many, many, many nations. Japan just got lucky and delayed some decades, but the time has come.

“China during the Mao years was distinctly nonchalant about their old war rival, and it’s reported that in 1972, when the Japanese prime minister Tanaka Kakuei went to Beijing and apologized about the war, Mao laughed heartily and said that, on the contrary, the Chinese people are grateful, as without the Japanese invasion, the communists would have never won power. However, after the riots of Tiananmen, the government decided that leftist indoctrination of the youth was counterproductive in the new capitalist environment, and decided to change the fuel of asabiyyah to a nationalist myth based on the Great Victory against Japan. Since the 1990s, all history textbooks have been rewritten to focus on the great Communist Party which deserves power not because of the great profits from agricultural collectivization achieved with Mao’s leadership, but because the Communist Party defeated the evil Japanese Devils. This had the double benefit of leaving open the possibility of rapport with the Kuomintang in Taiwan. The foundation myth of the Communist Party stopped being their victory against the evil capitalists of Chiang Kai-Shek, and became a people’s romance where two friendly factions of noble Chinese fought the foreign invader, and then tragically were deceived by foreign imperialism into fighting each other.”

“Thats historically though, before females largely entered the work force, and before we were able to keep old people healthy and in working shape well beyond 65 years old. Unfortunately now that we ahve females in the work force, and the elderly working well beyond the point of retirement, our work force numbers SHOULD be much higher than historical averages.
But, they arent. They’re barely above historical averages, even when we have a lower birth rate than in the past (ie: fewer young ones who cant/shouldnt work yet) and an elderly population that can still work (ie: more older people who can still work). And an even bigger problem on top of that, is that regular full employment isnt enough anymore to sustain the average home or the typical “nuclear family” model by a long shot. Which leads to a reduction in what would be “stay at home moms” as well, as many are forced to work as well to make ends meet and be able to have any money to put away for savings if they can even manage that.
It doesnt matter that the historical averages are, because so much has changed in the last 30-40 years. With things as they ARE, we SHOULD see 70-80% of the population in the work force. But we dont, we see barely over half and well under 2/3rds.
Which is really the problem when you get to the heart of it. Our economies and societies as humans just arent built, or will ever be built, to sustain both men and women, as well as the elderly, all being in the work force at once. Theres just not going to be enough space to ever accomplish that, because of the fact you’re going to have mega-chains that always show up and are able to do lots of work with less labor and keep high output levels to provide consumer goods to everyone, which means you arent going to see every little town able to sustain itself through small businesses.
Those small businesses keep having to become more and more specialized in order to find a market. And theres not enough room for THAT either.
Its a problem without a solution right now. And its GOING to eventually lead to an economic collapse of the west.”

Machines today far exceed the human capacity for strength, dexterity, endurance, accuracy and precision. The missing piece in the doom of the value of human labor is AI.
It’s not skynet you need to worry about it’s that when AI truly arrives it will make human labor worthless.”
“The only two explanations I can think of are that the Air Force wants a Cas platform that can keep up with prompt Global strike policies (basically a light supersonic AC130)
Boeing got mad when Trump canceled there sale of 30 Regional jumbo Jets to Iran and the defense department scrambled to come up with some stupid make work program to justify sending them 20 billion dollars”
“Just because there’s a patent doesn’t mean they’re gonna manufacture or even prototype it”
“Just because they’re never going to build it doesn’t mean the DoD won’t give them $20 billion to develop it”
“I remember there was a honeymoon period where he tried to do all his campaign promises via executive order in like the first two weeks. I think the guy literally didnt know what he was getting himself in to and now he’s just running on autopilot with all the poison they put in his diet coke”
“Dad, why do dogs look so different?”
“Because of their breed, son.”
“Why are some so big and some so small?”
“Their genes, of course.”
“And why are some clever and others not?”
“Um, purely economic factors.”
“Ironically, democracy -does- prevent war between nuclear powers. Due to the bureaucrat supremacy model, the guys allowed into the ‘in case of nuclear war’ sub-mountain bunker don’t have any power, and the ones with the power to declare the war aren’t allowed in.”
“Marxist class conflict.
Marx was correct that the elite classes, which he was born into, largely shares interests with each other. Prole classes are indeed more similar to each other than to elites…however, not similar enough. They cannot get along.
I always remember it as elites being able to handle the abstract similarities, while the proles get hung up on the concrete disparities, such as flags, food, and courtesies.
However, even if they didn’t get hung up, proles genuinely want locals to win and the distant to lose, simply because the locals are closer.”
“Defensive technology is essentially a way to avoid responsibility for inciting attacks. In other words, defence is irresponsible (and left wing).”
“The probability of entering and remaining in an intellectually elite profession such as Physician, Judge, Professor, Scientist, Corporate Executive, etc. increases with IQ to about 133. It then falls about 1/3 by 140. By 150 IQ the probability has fallen by 97%! In other words, a significant percentage of people with IQs over 140 are being systematically and, most likely inappropriately, excluded from the population that addresses the biggest problems of our time or who are responsible for assuring the efficient operation of social, scientific, political and economic institutions.
“Over an extensive range of studies and with remarkable consistency, from Physicians to Professors to CEOs, the mean IQ of intellectually elite professions is about 125 and the standard deviation is about 6.5. For example, Gibson and Light found that 148 members of the Cambridge University faculty had a mean IQ of 126 with a standard deviation of 6.3. The highest score was 139.”
“From a theoretical standpoint, democratic meritocracies should evolve five IQ defined ‘castes’, The Leaders, The Advisors, The Followers, The Clueless and The Excluded. These castes are natural in that they are the result of how people of different intellectual abilities relate to one another. This is based on research done by Leta Hollingworth in the 1930’s and the more recent work of D.K. Simonton.”
“Leta Hollingworth studied profoundly gifted children. She reported them as having IQs of 180+, which was a R16 score. As such, on today’s tests this equates to 159+. Her conclusion was that when IQ differences are greater than 30 points, leader/follower relationships will break down or will not form. It establishes an absolute limit to the intellectual gulf between leader and followers.””
“Garth Zietsman has said, referring to people with D15IQs over 152, ‘A common experience with people in this category or higher is that they are not wanted – the masses (including the professional classes) find them an affront of some sort.’ While true, it is more likely a symptom than a cause of the exclusion. We need to understand why they are an affront.
I can tell him that. People who work very hard and spend years in order to climb to what they regard as the pinnacle of achievement actively resent those who can simply leap up to the peak. And because their knowledge is hard won, they tend to cling to it much more tenaciously than the more intelligent individual who is no more tied to one piece of information than the next. What makes it worse is that they cannot fathom that the more intelligent individuals do not think like they do.”
“In my experience, the 150 IQ individual does not resent the individual with the 160 or the 175 IQ, and this may be because being above 145, we all tend to engage in similar thought processes, albeit with different capabilities. The 135 IQ individual dislikes and fears the 150+ individuals, while the 115 IQ individual either doesn’t believe the 150+ individuals exist or blithely insists that they are crazy.”
“While fundamentally a continuum, the epistemic competence hierarchy can be divided into ranks, by taking an arbitrary point as the origin.
Everyone in a lower rank is called an idiot. Anyone in a rank more than one higher is also called an idiot.
In both cases the rank produces conclusions contradictory to the reference point, and the reasoning behind them seems incomprehensible. At first glance they are impossible to distinguish – and almost nobody looks a second time.”
“Kind of insensitive to call the third world population boom an “ecological catastrophe””
Bad feelings might happen
Better throw away civilization”
“Interesting how the alt-left and the alt-right were equally furious about a drag queen performing at a free speech event.
Almost like they both have something in common – ruthless intolerance.”
“The alt-left: “We will kill all White people!”
The alt-right: “White people should be allowed to live.”
Paul Joseph Watson: “They’re exactly the same!””
“I used to think I had no will to power. Now I perceive that I vented it on thoughts, rather than people. Conquering an unknown province of knowledge. Getting the better of a problem. Forcing ideas to associate or come apart. Bullying recalcitrant words to assume a certain pattern. All the fun of being a dictator without any risks and responsibilities.”
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a small Jewish man shrieking “How dare you!” – forever.”
“[I]t would be so much cheaper, safer, healthier and easier to wait until the baby comes out before murdering him.
But then it would be more obvious what a terrible thing it is you are doing and nobody wants to know the stuff they do is terrible.”
“I am into some fairly kinky stuff, but somehow, sticking a knife in a pregnant woman’s vagina…. yeah, that crosses some sort of line. The sort of line that when you cross it, noone will ever lover and anyone who does ought be disdained.”
“I haven’t thought too much about abortion but assuming the premise it’s always seemed like the obvious move to me. All this nonsense about vacuums and guns and clotheshangers seems like a nonsensical way to go about destroying the existence of a fetus. Just get it out of the womb first and what does it matter if it’s vacuumed or incinerated or whatever afterwards?
Pretty decent example of how it’s just women wanting to eat their cake and having it too. Can’t commit to actually solving a problem / efficiently achieving an objective.”
“what do you see as the premise?”
“”Assuming the premise” I meant just “assuming that abortion is a justifiable goal” i.e. “avoiding the whole is abortion right or wrong debate”. If their goal is to abort the fetus then they should do it in the safest most efficient manner possible. As you note though, that’s clearly not their goal.”
“There are few things that the liberal media hates more than seeing whites and blacks getting along with each other. Unless of course, the white and black people in question are agreeing with each other about how evil white people are or are having mixed children together, then the news coverage and accolades are unending.”
“Looking back at the Bolshevik Revolution, we can see now that the Enlightenment for two hundred years before – all the critics of religion in the eighteenth century, all the republicans, all the secularists of the nineteenth century in agony over “the social problem,” all the “emancipators” of women – resemble nothing so much as a group of innocent and foolish children, playing with their canoes in some quiet shallows, a mile upstream Niagara. In the shallows they had proved themselves to be so strong, and no one had come to serious harm: why should they not try the deeper water?”
“Dogs can be trained to do quite complex tasks. She’s not as dumb as a dog. However, in a democracy, folk like this demand ‘human dignity’ but still have to be trained like dogs.
Result: they cannot be trained and cannot find productive work.”
“Japan carmakers are basically what feed, clothe and house the whole country.
That won’t stop 2 female journos from agitating to wreck it in order to gain status points in their American company.
If this isn’t high treason I don’t know what is.”
“Exercise is important for health, and everyone should exercise.
But if you’re trying to lose weight, food is going to be 90% of the battle.
“Eat less, move more” is ineffective nonsense for weight loss. And if it is so ineffective, why do we hear it so much? We hear that partly because it’s in the vested interest of certain groups to get that message out. Which groups? Food and beverage companies, the fitness industry, and mainstream medicine.
Food and beverage companies – Big Food – want us to believe that eating less and moving more will help weight loss because it absolves them of all blame. They’ve made a lot of effort to create addictive, highly profitable junk food that makes people fat and they want to continue. Big Food wants the gravy train to keep rolling. If it turned out that their industrial food engineering and manufacturing helped make everyone fat, there would be consequences – and less profit. Big Food has spent millions in advertising to tell people that eating a “balanced diet” (which includes their products) and exercise are how to lose weight. The fitness industry – gyms, magazines and websites, clothing, trainers – also want you to believe that exercise, not food, is the key to weight loss.
Most people use their products and services to lose weight.
Finally, mainstream medicine has little to offer for weight loss. It has stood by idly while the country has become fat and diabetic. By promoting “eat less, move more”, mainstream medicine can readily shift the blame to *you*.
It’s your fault you got fat (they say) because we’ve been telling you how to do it but you’re too lazy to act on it.”
“The seed of decay is perhaps the fact that the earlier pieces are basically porn. Yes, the Pentagon probably does kill soldiers on the regular to fellate its own ego. What can all or almost all Atlantic readers do about it? Buttfuck all. It’s high-quality porn, but… Sexual pornography assists the viewer in imagining they’re having sex. Coercion pornography assists the viewer in imagining they are a governor for a large territory. IMO the latter is a far more degenerate vice.”
“The Christian deity:
- demands blood for appeasement (Lev. 16), and offers material gain in exchange for foreskins(Genesis 17:9-14)
- has body parts (in Exodus 33:23 he shows Moses his ass)
- has a name, Jealous (Exodus 34:14)
- has temper tantrums, and experiences states of anger and jealousy, showing that he fears loss (not very godlike) (too many verses to list here)
- is bested by Chemosh (2 Kings 3:26-27) on one occasion, and is unable to overcome men armed with iron on another (Judges 1:19)
- He made Ezekiel cook food using human shit in exchange for magic assistance (Ezekiel 4:12)
- When he isn’t being carried around by the Jews in a box (Joshua 6: 1-12), he travels in a pillar of smoke or fire (Porphyry said evil Daimones have cylindrical vehicles, pillars are cylindrical)
- He also instructs Moses employ usury against Gentiles (but not other Jews) in order to “deliver all nations into your possession” (Deut. 23:20)
Yhvh is a Genie. Christians worship a blood-thirsty genie whose name is Jealous and who offers the world to the Jews in exchange for their foreskins.”
“Evidently we’ve worn out our usefulness to the faith and are to be replaced with the teeming throngs of third-world faithful. Faithful who wouldn’t even exist had we not brought the religion to them at great cost in blood and treasure.
As a universalist religion with its holy places far from Europe or her colonies, this sense of human interchangeability is understandable. It doesn’t make it excusable though. They taught us to see our ancestors as foreigners and foreigners as our kin. They tore down the wonders of our classical era in an ISIL-style orgy of iconoclastic barbarism, then claimed its achievements for their faith without batting an eyelid. When we felled our forests to build tall ships and conquered the four corners of the earth they rode on our backs like bloodsucking bugs, sinking their fangs into the primitive peoples whose land we conquered and compelling us to ‘civilise them’ at our (and their) expense.
Yet now, in our hour of greatest weakness, they either join our enemies in tearing us down or look on indifferently as we are destroyed. Without us they would be nothing yet they show us only contempt.”
