Modernity showed us what it really was all along by showing us how it ends. People want to get back to reality and away from the giant scam of subsidizing the weak by taking from the strong.
The ancients knew this. Most likely, people from Europe and Asia were visiting the New World regularly, but left few traces, especially in the southern hemisphere where wood structures quickly rot away.
If we recognize ecosystems as having a legal right to exist, humanity will have to stop its reckless expansion.
When you make healthcare “free,” you open an unlimited budget, and not surprisingly, Big Pharma has gotten far too powerful for anyone to contain.
The lecturer, Dorian Abbot, a geophysicist, has been criticized for opposing affirmative action programs and other initiatives to promote diversity, equity and inclusion at colleges and universities.
The Left rages because recent history has proven that diversity is a dead letter. It does bad, not good. Unsurprisingly, normal people are pulling back while the Left goes full insanity into the abyss, since it has used “civil rights” since WW2 as its path to unlimited power. Diversity is Communism.
Welcome to doofus planet, where we design software by highly-paid ineffectual committee and then hand it off to the lowest-cost NEETs and H-1Bs we can find to code it.
Remember that “green energy” jihad that the Left was going on about a few months back? They just got us out of the way so the third world can buy up all the oil, gas, and coal.
Over time, every industry seeks to become a utility. Like Communism, being a utility means that checks arrive every month no matter how useless or incompetent you are. That’s what the parasites want.
Sounds like they caught someone with a hand in the cookie jar and are backpedalling until they can excise all references.
Like all bullies, they enjoy atrocities, because they naïvely think that this makes their victims lay down and take it even more. In reality, it weaponizes their victims and makes them ready for a war with no quarter. Back someone against the wall, and he must kill you to survive. We’re like rats in a cage!
Leap into life: if you have markets, people will sell anything; if you stop those markets, like with Communism, people will sell anything and pay bribes. If you make it illegal, people will work around it or pay bribes. We have to start talking about the quality of people we allow into our species.
Bannon shows the new attitude on the Right: treat this government as illegitimate, and ignore it, then sue after it does whatever pointless flailing it will do this week.
As said many times here before: we are in Late Stage Democracy. Our leaders have followed precedent into literal insanity, our people are not reproducing, our governments are broke, and our industry no longer invents anything new or valuable. Welcome to the end.
Arabic-looking Salvini realizes that the far-Right is defined by a bottom line: it accepts and endorses biological inequality. This clashes with the egalitarian ideals of democracy. There is no way forward except out of democracy, and most of his job now consists of being in denial of that.
In previous studies, Vopson postulated information is a fifth state of matter alongside solid, liquid, gas, and plasma, and that elusive dark matter could be information. Vopson’s study also included derivation of a formula that reproduces accurately the well-known Eddington number, the total number of protons in the observable universe.
Logic allows that matter can have an informational basis, but not the other way around, since information by being necessarily abstract does not confine itself to properties of material.
No one can control health costs. When you make healthcare “free,” whether by EMTALA or Obamacare, people use it as an alternative to avoiding health problems. Why eat well, sleep sufficiently, and exercise when the doctor has a pill? Democracy makes people morally and mentally lazy.
Crowdism says that people in groups participate in trends that re-enforce that idea that individualism administered by a herd is good. When even open source software starts adopting the same “fake news” filters that mainstream social media does, you know you are not seeing a conspiracy… you are seeing trend conformity.
Ideologies like egalitarianism are conjectural, taking the form “equality is not found in nature, but our theory is that it makes life better.” That means that any who fail to conform are a threat because they are competition showing that life can be better without egalitarianism.
The latest horrific clown world pathology just dropped. Injecting women with date rape drugs seems extreme, but in a world of constant casual sex, it seems increasingly minor. Women go to clubs to have sex, and the guy with the needle just gets there first.
In egalitarian systems, whoever is the biggest victim wins the power game, since democracy takes from the strong to give to the weak, so whoever is weakest gets the pot. The trans lobby sure ate up the LGBT movement.
One-sided enforcement does not work. If tearing down White statues, screaming “Black Lives Matter,” and claiming racism every time something turns out poorly for a minority is legit, so is telling minorities what you think of them. ProTip: just attack diversity, in any form, instead. Send the Irish back!
This sure is starting to look like a statistical error where the vaccinated are just social conformists who are not particularly at risk of anything.
Another Hart-Celler success story. It is interesting to see how the big networks are starting to report what social media will not.
Democracy favors easy answers. Not surprisingly, guys like Fauci get away with blatant lies because the average voter cannot remember more than a week ago, and cannot think ahead more than a week.
Comparing with Iranian population, the findings suggest the higher prevalence of most diseases among Afghan immigrants and refugees.
Refugees at this point in history generally consist of those bailing out of a difficult situation for an easier one in a country with more money. Not surprisingly, lots of them have lots of diseases.
This sounds more like Stalin, Mao, or Genghis Khan than the leader of a would-be superpower. Most likely, China is less stable and prosperous than we have been led to believe, and in this instability, will turn toward war to mobilize its population.
When you let the proles run free without consequence, they make a ton of noise, and soon no one is getting quality sleep. Well, except for the moral and intellectual slumber that defines the voters.
If you want to bully someone, you do not do so through sane actions; you do insane things and then act as if you were attacked when people resist, mobilizing the Crowd behind you to smash down the non-conformists. Everyone who is healthy and normal recognizes that Dr. Levine needs a padded room, not a uniform.
Intellectuals love Communism for the same reason that the rich do: they think it will finally appoint them Supreme Leaders over the people who actually produce things for a living. They are always surprised when they end up against the wall instead.
You cannot have your cake and eat it too, nor can you come out ahead in a deal with the Devil, just like you cannot beat the house for long. The bureaucrats will pause, regroup, and wear Poland down with endless internal litigation. Civil rights gives empires like the EU the mandate to do whatever it wants.
Diversity military seems to be under-performing. In the next Pearl Harbor, all of the diversity, soyjack, boxwine, and LGBT troops will simply destroy their own ships so they get disability pay.
The new robber barons appear to be exactly like the old, except that they produce nothing but drama.
They are clearing out non-conformists so that their system can be run by fanatics who are oblivious to everything but ideology. The same thing drove the French and Bolshevik revolutions, and also doomed the societies thus produced.
The same RINO cucks who have given away the game want you to draw a distinction between Marxism, liberalism, and Leftism. These things are all the same: egalitarianism. This is a messianic ideology which will not stop until it reaches full-blown Communism. “A Communist is just a Democrat in a hurry!”
This would tell a sane person that our infection model is all wrong and that our statistics may be manipulated. The Left needs COVID, like the Green New Deal or civil rights, as an absolute demand for conformity to increasing liberalization.
The housing crisis across the West has come about because we have both raised the cost of housing with taxes and imported huge numbers of foreigners, creating ghettos and driving up demand. Reduce population and the housing crisis goes away.
Everything is fake in “freedom”-based societies. If not, just give it time.
The saga keeps getting creepier and creepier. Nerds are good at manipulating machines, but it gives them a god-complex, sort of like psychologists and bureaucrats. There is no substitute for the aristocracy.
American democracy self-destructed and created a power vacuum, so now all aspiring major powers are making their plays. Since all parties are bankrupt, this will end in another world war. Looks like getting rid of mean tweets has a high cost, and will for generations.
This must be why we slam kids into cities and put them in airless classrooms.
Abstraction was addictive, she recalled from her early psychology classes, and could become somewhat of a rabbit trail, leading away from reality entirely.
Raise taxes, and you raise costs; raise costs, and only those who are already wealthy can get anywhere. We have crushed our middle classes under the burden of paying for the diversity and underclasses, while giving the poor a free ride like a socialist nation. Again, “equality” always means “take from the strong, give to the weak” no matter what the cucks tell you, and the only alternative is “good to the good, bad to the bad” as found in natural selection and pre-universalist morality.
Give nerds money and they turn government into an engineering project which works about as well as their flaky, cumbersome software.
Old wisdom: “Don’t trust anyone over 30.” New wisdom: “Don’t trust anyone who takes a paycheck.” Our lockdowns and mask fetishism have not stopped the COVID-19 panic, which is more panic, trend, and cult than disease.
It is even worse with Apple, which is why they keep their products as a “black box” or something where one cannot see the inner workings. These large companies are pimping advertising that actually reaches the wrong audience — SJWs, diversity, LGBT, soyjack, boxwine — instead of hitting the middle class families who actually buy stuff based on how well it performs.
It formalizes their value as being physical bodies only and, if you create the market opening, some will be shuffled into it. This opens up the perpetual question about morality: do we want to force people to behave, or let them act as they will, and use natural selection to filter out those who make bad choices? Do vaginas need odometers? What about penises? Too bad you cannot get a CarFax or LexusNexus report on your potential partners or spouses.
Good thing that everyone is looking at White Nationalists. We can ignore the vast internal conflict caused by diversity that way.
Who is really surprised? If flashing images can affect our minds, then TikTok might as well. Either that, or we have added “social media PTSD” to the string of excuses for bad behavior as we did when we declared obesity, promiscuity, gambling, and alcoholism to be “diseases” instead of moral failings.
The dystopia that you feared arrived not by the action of hostile governments, but because it offers convenience and safety. The first company to fail to roll out facial recognition software will be blamed for not doing so the instant a known criminal kills someone in one of their locations.
This is a Leftist provocation. The State law requires teaching opposing views, so the Left trotted out something perceived to be beyond criticism as a means of attacking the law, which really is about “critical race theory” and other Leftist indoctrination. You can bet this guy is a Leftist.
Ignore the political drama, and you can pay attention to normal life instead of being kept in a constant panic condition by those who want you to cling to them so that they can rule you. Michael Crichton called this one as well.
Unions always favor the Left, and the media will fit anything into the Narrative simply because their audience can understand it easily that way and will cheer for the dominant paradigm. Never trust a union!
When you effectively legalize thefts of up to $1,000 then gangs form to divide mass thefts into thousand-dollar chunks. Then business leaves. Without police enforcement, business will also leave. Soon your urban population will leave in a food and resources desert. They will order it all from Amazon and Facebook. Wonder who supported these crazy laws?
They want to abolish citizenship so that the Crowd can surge in and vote for what it always wants, which is Big Daddy Nanny State government, free stuff, and anarchy in the streets. That way, only those who are ultra-conformist will be able to live in the gated communities, and government will never face an opposing viewpoint.
Slowly, everyone is figuring out that wind power and solar power are not great options, after only a few trillion spent worldwide. Now we are back to the race to make nuclear power plants that do not explode when Homer Simpson is at the controls. If we wanted one place to use our existing “AI” (machine learning) technology, this would be it.
They kicked the numbers up with the panic. In a panic, if someone dies who might have COVID-19, you report the death as COVID-19 even if the person died of the average 2.6 other comorbidities that they had.
Did you wonder why those mean old conservatives opposed generous pensions? People are double-dipping, working twenty years for each branch of government, and then going home with six-figure salaries for the remaining thirty years of their lives. No system can afford this. Nor can any system afford illegal aliens doubling its school-age population.
However, The Independent understands that the suspect is of Somali origin, and the murder is being treated at this point as a probable Islamist terror attack.
Watch that one slide into the memory hole, just like they want to ashcan the Justine Diamond shooting.
Welcome to the Streisand Effect: the more you demonize something, the more valuable you make it as contraband information while simultaneously legitimizing it. The Holocaust — the official narrative is crap like all wartime propaganda, but the event happened — is next, along with other sacred cows.
