Diversity Implodes Near the Titanic

A company named Oceangate embarked upon a mission to descend to the wreck of the HMS Titanic in a homebrew submarine with five passengers. The company claims that they have a hack to defeat the odds and consistently execute similar missions. They simplified the controls to the point that the submarine can be operated like a video game.

This sounds like an inspirational story. They are bravely going where not many logical people have gone before. The submarine intended to descend over 12,000 feet beneath the surface to visit the wreckage. According to NOAA, water pressure increases by one Atmosphere (14.6 lbs/square inch) for every ten meters a craft descends. Given the standard conversion of roughly 0.3 meters/foot, we can multiply by 12,000 and get 3,600 meters of descent. This converts to a pressure level of 5,250 lbs/square inch.

Two hours into its mission, the submarine imploded in a flash of metal and flame. The revolutionary carbon fiber hull failed and with a siren song of screeching metal, the submarine took on a much smaller size and ended up as a debris field on the ocean floor.

We call it hubris when people act above their station in the natural order described by tradition; this includes both men pretending to be gods and proles pretending to be kings. The proles who ran Oceangate deserve our mockery for providing a teachable moment about the failure of diversity.

Oceangate CEO Stockton Rush oozes with DEI contempt for the people who built the society he gets to callously play around in.

“When I started the business, one of the things you’ll find, there are other sub-operators out there, but they typically have, uh, gentlemen who are ex-military submariners, and they — you’ll see a whole bunch of 50-year-old white guys,” Rush told Teledyne Marine in a resurfaced interview. “I wanted our team to be younger, to be inspirational and I’m not going to inspire a 16-year-old to go pursue marine technology, but a 25-year-old, uh, you know, who’s a sub pilot or a platform operator or one of our techs can be inspirational,” said Rush. Specifically, Rush navigates the trapped submersible with what the report describes as a “cheap Amazon video game joystick.”

Mr Rush embodies an entire mode of thought and belief that causes damage to anyone it touches. In an effort to appeal to the hip new audience of Leftists and minorities, he has rejected all of the learning that went before simply because White people did it.

The medical examiner should write in “Leftism” as the manner of death on those certificates. When we ignore learning about how to adapt to reality, we face bad consequences like, say, our submarines imploding and leaving behind ravioli paste for our families to bury.

Stockton Rush can choose to forget or disrespect anything or anyone he chooses. History, physics and perennial philosophy all have ways of keeping track and keeping score. The reckoning can be astonishingly brutal. The same can be said for the future of the West under diversity.

I feel a genuine human sympathy for the four passengers who paid $250K each to be brutally crushed in an environment more hostile to life than the surface of Venus. I feel no sympathy whatsoever for Mr. Rush or for his joystick cavalier who piloted The Woke Sub to its ineffable fate beneath the waves.

If anything good can possibly emerge from the depths of this sad event, it would be the clear and obvious display of what happens when arrogant wokeness overrides the accumulated wisdom and judgement of time for the sake of fleeting social and political approval.
