We hear so much about how bad colonization was, but according to current dogma, cooling the climate takes top spot on our ideological to-do list. They use dodgy figures to claim that there were more people in the new world than there were, and that ninety percent of them were killed, when the same diseases in Europe did not achieve anywhere near that number, so this is likely just more Leftist woo to keep the herd stampeding in the same direction. Since they have no actual goals, they must be kept in motion with a series of panics, trends, fads, and outrages.
The Holocaust industry overplayed its hand, and now no one cares. It was a long time ago in a war that killed tens of millions. There is no way to “learn” from it; yes, no one likes genocide. However, we now see that whenever diversity appears — no matter what groups are involved — it ends in racial resentment. We do not even want the “nice” immigrants from Japan and Maryland living among us. Like history itself giving a giant shrug and burp, a history of sausages museum moves in next to the Holocaust museum, so that after their mandated feeling-bad-together, the tourists can learn about something hopeful, enjoyable, and life-affirming.
Trump has been rebuilding the judiciary by moving in judges who are not necessarily raging conservatives, but more importantly, are not Leftist ideologues. This means that their decisions may not always go to the Right, but they will not participate in the steady and aggressive consistent push to the Left that has been the nature of American courts since the 1920s.
In the past, we admitted people for H-1Bs based on the promise that they could learn things in the future. Now, we want them to have invested a great deal of time and money in their own education, which gives them skin in the game and also reduces the fire sale prices that large Silicon Valley companies were paying for such laborers. This will cut down the number of people who come here, raise the quality, and then prove that the problems of diversity still exist and force us to confront the epidemic of cheating and teaching-to-the-test that makes many third world universities underperform relative to European and American ones.
We reach a crossroads in diversity. Modern society broke us and turned us into zombie robots who wander around talking about equality while doing repetitive tasks that take far longer than they should, given our labor-saving devices. We are engaged in a giant pro forma activity for the sake of keeping our herd stable after we killed off our only real leaders. When others come here, we want to break them, too. We want to force the nonsense jobs, the insane politics, the neurotic social life, the promiscuity, and the existential misery upon them. Yet we claim to respect their cultures, which suggests that we are counting on our sickness to break down their cultures over time. Somehow, we get outraged over their odd practices because we assume that our culture is objective, scientific, universal, and beyond question. However, we panic because on some level, we know that we are simply passing on a sickness.
Apple shows us the third world model in action. A few wealthy people sell products to a vast horde of poor and not very bright people, and the wealth stays with the wealthy because the poor have no idea what is happening to them and will never figure it out. When people whine about inequality, this is what they mean, but all of their “solutions” lead to more of the same. Ironically, when Apple sells less, working conditions in China may improve. In the meantime, without the circular Ponzi scheme, entertainment companies like Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and Google would sell a lot less of their product. The rich need the poor to generate income, which is why the wealthy ultimately turn socialist so that they can formalize this arrangement and make it permanent, cutting out the middle man. In the ultimate irony, the “wisdom” of the merchants and shopkeepers leads directly to socialism, which is just as delusional as their first idea, which was killing off the kings so that they could sell more garbage to morons directly.
Back in the early dot-com 2.0 and 3.0 days, “disruption” became a favored buzzword. It meant upsetting existing markets with a new and radical efficiency that caused existing institutions to collapse. Ride-sharing apps claimed to be more efficient through computer scheduling and therefore, to be a better option to the cabs. Fast-forward a few years, and the drivers in these firms notice that they are working for less than minimum wage. The “woke” crowd cries out at the “inequality,” and this gives government the blank check it needs to work, and soon it mandates that ride-sharing drivers get paid the same as cab drivers. The ride-sharing firms, after some legal battling, now announce that they are raising their rates. These will now be much closer to the cost of cabs. What happens then? People will notice what cabs offer that ride-sharing does not, and demand that. Costs will go up again. Eventually, the industries will merge, with consumers paying exactly what they were before, adjusted for inflation. Several thousand dumpsters will be filled with discarded material from the failing companies and hauled to landfills to await the end of humanity.
The water wars begin in Spain. Since the country produces much of the fruit and vegetables for Europe, it relies on greenhouses and lots of water, which has led farmers to dig millions of illegal wells. That has in turn drained the groundwater supply to a critical point. Europe will have to import its water, at first from Russia, and later from China, in order to make up the gap, and this will make it dependent on them. The other option: reducing population by sending the migrants home, and growing fruits which work in the climate of Europe, has occurred to no one.
The global warming and ninety percent taxes crowd has come up against a brutal reality:
California’s struggle bodes poorly for other major U.S. cities with similar sprawl and expensive urban housing – such as Houston, Atlanta, and others that planned their cities around cars – and casts doubt on whether the United States can meet its pledged carbon cuts under an international agreement to fight climate change.
Transportation is tied with power generation as America’s leading source of carbon dioxide emissions, at 28 percent, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – and it takes top billing in California, at about 40 percent. It makes up a smaller share in the rest of the world, where car ownership is lower but likely to grow.
The more people drive, the more they emit, and even mandating that they buy electric vehicles does not seem to be working. So, what would any “smart” manager or administrator do? She would demand that we redesign cities around giant Soviet-style apartment blocks located next to stops for public transit, cutting out private cars entirely.
People detest diversity. It turns Britons from people proud of winning in WW2 to people who think Hitler was right. This man has figured out The Third World Strategy, which is to get into places, outbreed the inhabitants, genetically absorb them, and then resume doing third world things like subsistence agriculture. This is why he is talking in terms of Mengele-style sterilization of the Other.
Why would a UFO come here? Probably to watch a civilization that is trying to decide whether it should live or die. If they need something from us, they will recruit human collaborators, set up shell companies, fund them with their superior technology, and take whatever they want. We offer them nothing if they have the technology to get here. The disaster scenario is aliens with technology more like our own who become marooned here, and therefore need to take over our political systems in order to get what they want. At that point, they will simply concoct something like egalitarianism, since most people get doe-eyed and weepy and vote for that, and then manipulate us through actors hired to tell us all about the free stuff that we will get next if we just mobilize to pay attention to what is going on over there, and ignore what is happening right next to where we just were.
Cops got a tip that someone was dealing heroin. This was phoned in by someone else, maybe a neighbor with a grudge or who simply wanted to buy up a house cheaply once the inhabitants were gone. The cops went in “Big Dumb” in undercover garb and blasted down the door, at which point the homeowner started blazing away. He shot four cops before getting killed, and his wife allegedly attempted to grab a gun from one of the officers and was killed; it is unclear whether she knew that this was a police officer at the time. Some drugs were discovered, but not drug dealer levels of drugs. Now one of America’s most diverse police forces has to answer for a multi-bungle of epic proportions.
The “yellow vests” do not know it, but they are ethnic French people who are protesting their high taxes, low wages, and high prices caused by the attempts by the government to pay for the non-white underclass. All they know is that they are working more (it is difficult to consider modern work “hard,” but one spends more time and worry over it) only to see more taken out of their paychecks by taxes and more of the remaining money going to goods that cost more because those businesses, in turn, are paying higher taxes. Since 42% of France depends on government to keep it out of poverty, and an elite of bureaucrats and consultants needs government for employment, this means that half of the population is carrying the rest to no benefit and considerable disadvantage for them. Socialist-style policies — taxing everyone and giving the money to those below a certain threshold — always end this way. As Margaret Thatcher was fond of saying, “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” The people who are being taken from want that to end, and this presents a problem because that will cut government down to a shadow of its former self, so government is offering them more of the socialist-style policy that caused their predicament in an attempt to buy them off. To their credit, the “yellow vests” have not fallen for it.
Maybe now we can finally admit that social media is the fake news. Half of the accounts are fake, many are bots, and this automated traffic is designed to sway public opinion. If we believe that Russia and Iran can do it, with both being cash-strapped third world states, what do we think that large corporations and wealthy foreign powers can do?
Young Adult (YA) author falls afoul of the SJW crowd, and they tear down a mediocre but rising star in their mediocre genre because she was not politically correct enough. As time goes on, having the Left reveal its true motives — power for its own sake — over its pretenses, pretexts, excuses, justifications, auto-validations, and dogma shows us all exactly how insane and unstable this movement is under the skin.
Obama left Trump a mess because he sabotaged many thousands of little things instead of leaving one large centralized disaster. Much of this stuff was already broken but was made worse by having an ideologue in charge. Now Trump and his team have to go through and bit by bit edit out the failing policies. Much of these involves large swathes of government that stopped doing what it was supposed to do, and became dedicated to Leftist activism instead. As he works his way through the different agencies, replacing ideologues with functional people, Trump is chipping away at The Leftist Model: a third world state where a few wealthy mixed-whites rule over a vast grey race horde.
People have not yet figured out that most of the money is gone from journalism. The days of papers with huge budgets and legions of reporters who could spend time researching stories probably went away in the 1980s, followed by the years of the USA Today Effect in which colorful graphs, vivid pictures, and human interest stories with a self-help kind of vibe took the place of the somber, analytical, and detail-heavy stories of years past. Since the 1990s, much of mainstream media has involved retyping press releases, sometimes even calling opposing parties for a quote before slapping the stuff out the door.
With diversity, you are never free. You will never be free of the demands of other groups who are, like all special interest groups, trying to get their fifteen minutes of fame so that they can use it to gain power. Imagine if MADD, the NRA, Jews for Jesus, NOW, and Doctors Without Borders knew that one of them was going to gain control of the entire civilization and change it into its image. They fight like cats and dogs, just like our religious, political, racial, cultural, and social classes do. Society works when you have a single race and ethnic group, a caste structure where the good people are on top, and rough agreement on religion and politics with both super-simplified so that fractious divergence does not arise. When you have different special interest groups, they look for ways to be offended because that is how they attain media presence and through that, how they get closer to their goal of total domination. This means that they do not care that you did not intend for your shoe to have markings that might look like “Allah” if squint, they only care about seizing more power for themselves. Diversity is a path to doom through endless infighting.
Leftists found a way to win elections by abusing absentee ballots. It turns out that operatives would find ballots for people who were not voting, fill them out, sign them and hand them in. If they could not do it directly, they would go to these people and sit with them while “advising” them on how to fill out ballots. As always, democracy fails because relatively few people vote, and many are haphazard or careless in their voting, which means that the Left will either sway them with lies or outrage fake the vote.
Mentally bloated by democracy as they were physically swelled by its junk food, first world citizens sleepwalked their way into a very dangerous situation during the years of Obama, who was as incompetent as he was corrupt. China slowly gathered around them, infiltrated wherever it could, and prepared for final subversion. For them, loyalty mattered more than division into industry; the Asiatics may be the most individualistic of all races, but they know that their individual interests are best expressed by a strong group. As a result, Chinese companies work with the state, much as companies and oligarchs work with the state in Russia, and those of us who let them into our nations suffer for it.
It turns out that among the diverse groups of the world, not all groups like each other. Our current narrative focuses on how the West is bad, since the West grew up before all these other people and organized itself in ways they did not, and ended up colonizing the world as a result. That makes them feel bad, so they need a narrative about how the West is bad. In reality, every group is acting in its own interests alone. Altruism does not exist; people participate in herds because they expect that the herd will defend their individual interests, namely they desire to do whatever they want with no accountability. Instead, people see their interest as the group interest, and they want other groups gone or conquered, which means that diversity and globalism will never work but will only, as democracy succeeds so well at doing, bury the conflict so that it explodes with much greater intensity later.
The inevitable collision between high-productivity societies with generous social benefits nets and immigration finally played out in Sweden. The message that immigration is already too much and needs to stop, especially as formerly peaceful Sweden becomes a place where you do not go out late at night because of the ethnic violence. Others are watching this and across Europe and America, realizing that diversity is like so many other policies of our democratic states, a desperate attempt to fix intractable structural problems that focuses on one single element — making money and generating tax money — at the expense of everything else. Now that it has formally failed, we know we can move on, and the backtracking begins as these countries start to deal with an unwanted population among them.
The Trump method works. Reduce taxes, regulations, and immigration and suddenly your economy is not struggling any more. As he lifted the cruft and manipulation of the Clinton-Obama years, Trump liberated the economy to function on its own again, instead of acting as a centralized economy because regulations dictated pricing in many ways. This led to a surge in jobs as the USA tries to make itself self-sufficient before the collapse of the globalist economy led by China, which will result in the mother of all economic domino effects. This recession has begun with a drop in production caused by the breakdown of the globalist cycle. Under globalism, the West was a “service economy” that outsourced much of its actual productivity to the third world in order to avoid the high costs of unions and regulations, both of which are “let’s assume that the worker is always innocent and competent” exercises which fail to meet the standards of known reality. This produced a consumer orgy in cheap goods. With the demise of the cost disparity, the trade in massive amount of cheap stuff fell off, and now the demand for it has lowered as nations struggle for self-sufficiency instead.
Record sales peaked in 1996 and companies looked for the next big thing. They had been promoting hip-hop/rap for some time but finally got their big break. The new people rising in our culture had no idea of any kind of heritage other than mass culture, and when mass culture went African-American under Bill Clinton, they accepted it as normal and became regular hip-hop/rap listeners, not realizing that they were listening to music that came out of the same surge of combining and refining genres that produced the last gasps of Baby Boomer music. Now that music has become almost totally conformist, and people are bored out of their minds, can we finally view rap/hip-hop, rock, jazz, techno, and so forth as vestiges of the past, and move on to something with some actual depth?
