  • @Thursday
    I actually have some sympathy with women on this point. Women are designed to feel insecure in the presence of younger and prettier women, but, before the rise of modern media, they weren't constantly surrounded by images of women in the 99th percentile for looks on the whole planet. Maybe there would be the village beauty, and a couple other prettier women. That's it. So, yeah the rise of modern media has been a bit rough on women psychologically.

    On the other hand, the feminist conspiracy theories for why this is so are all completely bonkers. As Steve once note, the idea of Colin Powell and Alan Greenspan and other apex males in the patriarchy meeting behind closed doors to decide the how thin fashion models should be is pretty funny. Men are disposed to pick prettier women over less pretty women, so I guess men could be chastized for that, but most of them really have no interest in female oriented media whatsoever.

    Furthermore, women are also exposed to all sorts of media about high status males, so this doubtless inflates their sense of what kind of mate they should be shooting for too.

    Its the homo designer anorexic look, and it is real. Playboy/Hefner favored women with boobs.

  • @Bliss

    Brahmins and higher castes are descendants of the conquerors. They are the conquerors, preserving their culture.
     
    1. If they were descendants of steppe nomads they wouldn’t look like indians. Who would mistake the CEO of Google for anything other than a stereotypical subcontinental?

    2. Their current culture is not found anywhere outside India. What they are “preserving” is not the true Vedic culture, which involved the sacrifice of humans, cows, horses etc. Vegetarianism, Cow Worship, Idol Worship, Yoga etc are not Vedic.

    3. The culture they are perpetuating is nothing but superstitious nonsense. For example here are a bunch of brahmins sitting in tubs of water performing the ritual for bringing down rain:

    https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/indian-brahmins-perform-a-parjanya-yagna-to-appease-the-rain-gods-at-picture-id88479321

    Google CEO, belongs to a sub-caste of Tamil Brahmins, called Thenkalai Iyengar

    1000 years ago, a so called reformer, Ramanuja , admitted thousands of dravidians into the Thenkalai Iyengar sub-caste, and many of them do look dravidian

    I’m guessing there has been some adaptation in rec1man’s Tamil Brahmins so that vegetarianism is less harmful to him than it is to most people. White guys should absolutely not be vegetarians (push yourself toward paleo without being a nut about it). And it’s a really bad idea for pregnant white women as well.
     
    I'm guessing if a woman believed in karma, being a vegetarian during pregnancy and having a kid that later wound up being diagnosed with half the DSM would be a heavy karmic load, wouldn't it?

    30% of Indians are vegetarians, mostly upper castes, and doesnt seem to be a problem

  • From the Daily Beast: ... At a sold out fundraising dinner for gay Wall Streeters in the lavish Old Stock Exchange building in the heart of Wall Street. Barbra Streisand sang an updated version of "Send in the Clowns" with lyrics addressing what Hillary seemed to see as the most burning issue of the campaign:...
  • @CK
    Bill is one of they.
    Does anyone think, for the smallest minute, that he wanted to have to play second fiddle to that woman, in public, as the First "Gentleman"?
    When you have been the king of the hill, being the urinal on the downhill slope is not an attractive proposition.
    And concurrently do you think that Hillary wanted him anywhere near visible in her campaign?
    If she had won it would have been because of him, as it is she lost without his help.

    He was probably holed up at home with a big supply of viagra and a new girl every half hour.

  • @Charles Pewitt
    No one likes lesbians.


    I don't mind the lesbians who don't hate men. Many lesbians are indifferent to men or they think we're clods or dumb oaf boobs. Some lesbians have been known to confide to men that women are indeed a bit ditzy.

    The man-hating lesbians can go to hell.

    I’ve known quite a few lesbians, and if any of them were man-haters I certainly didn’t notice it. They may not be sexually interested in men, well most of them at least, but that doesn’t translate into hatred.

  • @AnotherDad

    What good is your vegetarian diet? It doesn’t seem to improve health in any way.
     
    I'm guessing there has been some adaptation in rec1man's Tamil Brahmins so that vegetarianism is less harmful to him than it is to most people. White guys should absolutely not be vegetarians (push yourself toward paleo without being a nut about it). And it's a really bad idea for pregnant white women as well.

    Mostly it serves as a signalling device--tribal marker and bonding agent. A simple one, but in function not unlike all the more baroque things the Ashkenazi developed to separate themselves from the surrounding gentiles, create barriers to interaction and thus help defend against defection or infection.

    30% of Indians, mainly the upper castes are vegetarian

    In North India, even richer peasant castes are vegetarian

    Indians have started winning Olympic medals in boxing and wrestling and all the winners are
    Jats from Haryana. Jats are Upper level farmers and vegetarian. Traditional Indian wrestlers were / are vegetarian

    Diet tells a lot about caste rank

    Vegetarian = Upper Caste

    Lamb, Chicken , Fish = Low caste

    Beef, Pork = Untouchable

    Similarly, the best selling books which advise the 90% of females who are truly "superwomen" to "settle" for Joe Average ("Mr Good Enough") because at least he'll earn enough to support her and the kids, and will be forever grateful for her deigning to do so.

    I hardly know any couples in which the woman isn't forever acting as though she is condescending royalty and in which the man doesn't spend his entire life working his fingers to the bone--at the office and at home--to finance her life of relative leisure.

    And every single representation in the MSM is exactly the opposite of this. White men in particular are inevitably portrayed as lazy, dishonest, and dishonorable. That's not the world I live in.

    You must live in an upper middle class area. Visit a lower middle class area and you’ll find the opposite scenario: women working pink collar jobs nonstop and taking care of kids while men work odd jobs and have a lot of leisure time. Granted part of this is simply because jobs for lower middle class men are fewer and farther between.

    I’m a teacher and 80-90 percent of the women I work with are basically supporting their entire family plus in some cases their parents as well on their so-so salary. True regardless of race. Me and one other lady who married rich guys are the only exceptions.

  • I agree with Steve’s first paragraph. To wit, women have a certain man in mind for them. One who is better than average in areas that women covet, such as power and status. Males in nature, tend to covet sexual attractiveness more than either power or status.

    I could be very wrong about this, but I don’t know about the concept of lesbians trying to exploit attractive females for their own (sexual) purposes.

    I’ve always found a ring of truth in Camille Paglia’s pronouncement that lesbianism was more about softball than sex. Haven’t seen updated “studies” but my anecdotal experience has supported that lesbians have the fewest number of sexual partners (compared with gay men, straight men, straight women in descending order).

  • Looking at how other mammals do ‘sex’ it is pretty much males exerting raw physical power over other males to win procreative rights. I don’t think a buck much cares how ‘pretty’ a doe is as long as she is in heat. Those antlers they grow are pretty useless too except for driving off other males and preventing a doe from saying ‘no’.

    It is interesting that some birds are both monogamous and have the male being the ‘prettier’ of the sexes. I guess birds aren’t sturdy enough creatures to engage in combat and so use ‘sex appeal’ in lieu of strength.

    My guess is humans, being more or less ready to mate year round, made ‘sex appeal’ the dominant factor in mating for both sexes with females being more dependant on it to attract a top male.

    OT Caleb Ecarma, the same guy who got shoved by the Gorka at CPAC, asks why Kanye West is "promoting" the "far-right" Scott Adams of Dilbert fame. The idea that Adams needs Kanye's help is as good as the idea that he is far-anything.
    https://www.mediaite.com/online/why-is-kanye-west-promoting-far-right-dilbert-creator-scott-adams/
    "Caleb Ecarma" sounds like a fake name derived from the letters of a real name, but it probably means a dog obsessed with revenge.

    However, by promoting Adams and his livestream video — titled “Scott Adams tells you how Kanye showed the way to the Golden Age” — Kanye has taken a turn for the more fringe side of the pro-Trump movement, as the author of the famous office-themed comic strip is known for promoting odd theories on behavioral science and supporting the so-called men’s rights movement.
    In one post on Adams’ blog that has since been deleted, the comic writer wrote, “The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone.”
     
    Ecarma goes on to fret and hand-wring about deplotable lunatics who do not know which fork to use, which snobbery probably explains a lot more about Kanye's present focus than politics.

Barbra Streisand sang an updated version of "Send in the Clowns" with lyrics addressing what Hillary seemed to see as the most burning issue of the campaign:...
  • @Whiskey
    Hillary is (not a joke) the most naturally gifted politician of this age. Just not with ordinary people you deplorables you. But with people who MATTER ... gay Wall Streeters, Barbara Streisand, Martha's Vineyard and the Hamptons billionaires, the oligarchs in Hollywood, Academia, Wall Street, and Business who run this country and have run it since Ike at least.

    As we can see with Trump, they're not going to tolerate you deplorables you and are working hard to remove him.

    Hillary won this group, not just by shared HATE HATE HATE of the White working AND middle class but by building a massive political machine that employs much of the TV/Media people, political operatives, and the "super delegates" who control the Nomination of the Democratic Party. If Hillary wants to run again its hers, as primary votes don't matter as Bernie Bros found out -- its all Super Delegates now. And these are Hillary's people -- far more so than Bill who never really got along with them the way Hillary did in their shared disdain of ordinary White people. Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeffrey Immelt, and Bob Iger all love love love Hillary. Do you have a few spare billion lying around you deplorable you?

    Trump's victory was a victory, stunning, over the oligarchs who have run this country since Ike. It is why Trump's voters have to be punished as much as Trump. To teach us deplorables a lesson by our betters.

    [Who are all pretty much weird and debased and a step away from branding some "slave" on the private parts.]

    IF and only IF Kamala Harriss or Corey Booker or Eric Holder (My People) get the support of Hollywood, Academia, and various oligarchs through the creation of a machine backed by a Zuck or Bezos with limitless money, they have a shot of taking the nomination away from Hillary!

    But lets be honest, Trump has been a disaster, he's riled up every NAM, Pussy-hat wearing loon (that's about 90% of White middle and upper class women right there), gun grabber, power twink, and oligarch and its the latter who are dangerous. They run almost all business, the entire government, the military, the cops, all of the Universities, Hollywood, and the media. Trump got them angry and in a punishing mood towards the Deplorables without doing anything to energize the Deplorables. Napoleon ended constant revolution in France by giving most of the Peasantry some small holdings carved out of the nobility, and creating battlefield promotions and en-nobling which got the peasants to turn out in the millions for his campaigns. Yes, people will fight for a few acres of land and some petty title and social honor when they have had nothing. All Trump has done is get Cackling Gun Grabber Dianne Feinstein literally rubbing her hands in glee and empower all the gun grabbers who are now media stars.

    Hillary could beat Trump like a drum next election, particularly if he's under indictment (thats if the Deep State does not just remove him) by the simple expedient of making millions of "Instant Americans" (just add water) by legalization of all the illegals or even State officials just saying illegals can vote ...

    As California has already done.

    I look around and where is the raw, political, social, economic, and military power create fear, uncertainty, and doubt in the oligarchs? Really all Hillary has to do is let her oligarchs carry her over the goal line and she'll be the President finally. Do you have $250 million in the bank? Heck does Eric Holder or Kamala Harris? Only Oprah can defeat Hillary in the Super Delegate fight because she's got more money and huge hold over all NAM and White female voters.

  • I actually have some sympathy with women on this point. Women are designed to feel insecure in the presence of younger and prettier women, but, before the rise of modern media, they weren’t constantly surrounded by images of women in the 99th percentile for looks on the whole planet. Maybe there would be the village beauty, and a couple other prettier women. That’s it. So, yeah the rise of modern media has been a bit rough on women psychologically.

    On the other hand, the feminist conspiracy theories for why this is so are all completely bonkers. As Steve once note, the idea of Colin Powell and Alan Greenspan and other apex males in the patriarchy meeting behind closed doors to decide the how thin fashion models should be is pretty funny. Men are disposed to pick prettier women over less pretty women, so I guess men could be chastized for that, but most of them really have no interest in female oriented media whatsoever.

    Furthermore, women are also exposed to all sorts of media about high status males, so this doubtless inflates their sense of what kind of mate they should be shooting for too.

  • Women are hypergamous. They want to mate with the highest status male they can get. And they want him to be higher status than they are. That is why throughout history higher status men have had more sex (and more kids) than lower status men. That changed for a period with monogamy but with birth civil it is changing back. I recently read that on tinder 20% of the men get 80% of the action. Not surprising nor were the findings on Freakonomics and elsewhere that the more money a man listed the more communications he got from women.

    What had changed from the historical trends are:

    1. Feminism has told women that they are perfect the way they are. They deserve that high status man no matter how they look or act.

    2. Feminism had also told women that they should focus on work and having fun during their youth while waiting for that perfect man that they don’t need just like a fish doesn’t need a bicycle. Then when the biological clock starts to chime many women become angry that no higher status man wants them. Now they have to either be cat ladies or settle for a man who is below their ideal. Damn patriarchy! Those sure yield satisfied marriages.

    3. Thanks to birth control the higher status men are banging away like always but are no longer having most of the kids. That is left to the lower status less educated classes.

    Amusing that no matter the level of indoctrination basic nature stays the same. Women want a tall, wealthy, high status man. Men want a younger, attractive, slender woman. increasingly neither gets what they want but in porn and, soon, with sex robots. Men will get more of their needs meet with them than women. Very few robots will be billionaires.

    The first part is definitely true but to what extent can lesbian professors (none of whom are remotely attractive) actually convince young heterosexual girls to have sex with them? It’s not like the case with the male profs, where the girls legitimately are attracted to them. Wanting to bang your prof is an extremely common thing among college girls…when your prof is a man. And you can’t ‘convince’ someone to become gay.

    They may "frown" on intermarriage but they do it. Intermarriage rates among Jews have been greater than 50 percent for decades. Among people younger than 40, we don't have a group of Jews but a group of white, educated people which includes many half-jews, quarter-jews, etc. It will be impossible to separate out "the Jews" in future generations.

    When 2 percent of a population marries itself at a rate of 50 percent or more, while random selection would give a rate of 2 percent of less, we are dealing with extreme ethnocentrism.

    As is Ayn Rand’s Objectivism, though it is a little subdued from its peak.

    Rand sold a boatload of books (though her titles have been gradually falling out of print). However, there was never much in the way of 'organized' Objectivism. It's long consisted of her literary executor Leonard Peikoff and a handful of others. Their one attempt at a periodical, The Objectivist Forum, was founded a couple of years before Rand died but ceased publication thirty years ago. It was a little folio, nothing more. There was once an 'institute' and a coterie of people who met regularly in Manhattan, but that blew up in 1968 when the affair between Rand and Nathaniel Branden unraveled. Rand herself had no time for the Libertarian Party or unconventional practical politics generally and Peikoff and his associates have that same disposition. Their interests are philosophical and literary.

    Sailer drops a 500 pound bomb right down the rug licker smokestack with that line!

    College professor and faculty lesbians lick their lusty chops at each new year's crop of dewy fresh babes who are ripe like peaches to be plucked. Granted, the male professors and faculty at colleges and universities eagerly await each new batch of beaver like howling horndogs too. I've seen it and heard it, folks. It's true.

    These college lesbians wouldn't admit for a second that they love to prowl for that fresh pussy when the late summer and autumn leaves start tumbling down. Well, some of the more honest college lesbians would admit that Sailer has a point, but not a lot.

    This comment has been rather explicit, but those lesbians, some of whom I assume are good people, are just as bad as men when it comes to horndogging the young ladies.

    In all fairness, the lesbos don’t spread much disease, can’t impregnate the coeds and 95-99 percent of time the girls tire of mussypunching after a while. I doubt they make permanent lezzies out of anyone not predisposed to that anyway.

    Similarly, the best selling books which advise the 90% of females who are truly "superwomen" to "settle" for Joe Average ("Mr Good Enough") because at least he'll earn enough to support her and the kids, and will be forever grateful for her deigning to do so.

    I hardly know any couples in which the woman isn't forever acting as though she is condescending royalty and in which the man doesn't spend his entire life working his fingers to the bone--at the office and at home--to finance her life of relative leisure.

    And every single representation in the MSM is exactly the opposite of this. White men in particular are inevitably portrayed as lazy, dishonest, and dishonorable. That's not the world I live in.

  • OT Caleb Ecarma, the same guy who got shoved by the Gorka at CPAC, asks why Kanye West is “promoting” the “far-right” Scott Adams of Dilbert fame. The idea that Adams needs Kanye’s help is as good as the idea that he is far-anything.

    https://www.mediaite.com/online/why-is-kanye-west-promoting-far-right-dilbert-creator-scott-adams/

    “Caleb Ecarma” sounds like a fake name derived from the letters of a real name, but it probably means a dog obsessed with revenge.

    However, by promoting Adams and his livestream video — titled “Scott Adams tells you how Kanye showed the way to the Golden Age” — Kanye has taken a turn for the more fringe side of the pro-Trump movement, as the author of the famous office-themed comic strip is known for promoting odd theories on behavioral science and supporting the so-called men’s rights movement.
    In one post on Adams’ blog that has since been deleted, the comic writer wrote, “The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone.”

    Ecarma goes on to fret and hand-wring about deplotable lunatics who do not know which fork to use, which snobbery probably explains a lot more about Kanye’s present focus than politics.

In fact most people have average intellects and rather generic personalities that don’t stand out in any way.

    It is obviously impossible for us to come to an agreement, I don't worry much about 'pissed off' diplomats or Tier 1 confrontations. In general a country that goes on is 'succeeding' on its own terms, Russia is there, will be there, they seem to live just fine.

    The preachy, self-centered, narcissistic condescension that you display here, with a touch of lazy thinking, is hurting West. It is a sign of weakness, you don't seem to be ale to argue actual points so you escape into high-falluting slogans and dismissive patronising. It is not working.

    Regarding the Tier 1 confrontation (yes, ugly and yet in a remote, non-real way that didn't touch that many people): why are we having it? Who has shown the endless initiatives to 'fix' Syria, 'liberate' Ukraine, put a base here or there, who has run a media demonisation campaign of almost Jesuit ferocity? Who are the real meddlers here? If you ask a normal guy on the street in Central Europe, it is not even close - he sees the frantic activity, the media manipulation, over-flying planes, the hectoring on TV - and guess what, almost all of it is from Brussels, Washington, London. Russia is invisible here, nobody cares, nobody sees them, they seem to be minding their own business.

    Then a bunch of Merkel migrant goons attack people on the street and people know what the real danger is. You are dreaming if you think that is not a #1 issue, you must not get out much. I guess you are too busy putting the world in 'Tiers'.

    Regarding the Tier 1 confrontation (yes, ugly and yet in a remote, non-real way that didn’t touch that many people): why are we having it?

    For this latest business, this is Russia’s fault. Nobody forced them to poison the Skripals, and nobody forced them to greenlight Assad using chemical agents in Syria, and yes, Russia did both here. The evidence and basic inference indicates that, and Russia’s online army of sycophants and propagandists (and I’m not saying that you’re one of them) who can’t do anything but say “False flag, false flag!” aren’t convincing either.

    But even if by some miracle Russia didn’t do these things, this would still be Russia’s problem anyway. This is what the diplomatic process is for. The representatives of various nations talk to each other, threaten, negotiate, persuade, educate, etc., etc. Russia seems to believe the whole process is an elaborate swindle against Russia’s interests, but that’s garbage. What is true, is that in the case of the Skripals, is that in addition to the evidence against Russia that the UK has much more credibility for square dealing so that as a consequence other countries believe them. There can’t be anybody else to blame but Russia for this.

    Who has shown the endless initiatives to ‘fix’ Syria, ‘liberate’ Ukraine, put a base here or there, who has run a media demonisation campaign of almost Jesuit ferocity?

    Those things happen, at least to a substantial extent, because the American presence is needed to guarantee peace in situations that wouldn’t have it otherwise. Why are the Czechs in NATO? It does nothing for American security, if it doesn’t do anything for the Czechs either they should leave. Why are there 30 thousand American troops in South Korea? Same there. The Filipinos didn’t get enough money to have an American naval base in the Philippines. Guess what, now we don’t have one.

    We are in these various places because people who are living in those regions understand perfectly well enough that things will be very very bad for them if the Kims and the Assads get to do what they want. If it were up to me, I’d just as soon a bunch of them could return home.

    Then a bunch of Merkel migrant goons attack people on the street and people know what the real danger is. You are dreaming if you think that is not a #1 issue, you must not get out much. I guess you are too busy putting the world in ‘Tiers’.

    I was trying to be precise with that. I should have just wrote WWIII my one of the earlier comments, that might have avoided some confusion. Ie, I’m not saying that Central Europe is supposed to think that the migrations are less important than Syria. I completely don’t believe that. I do hope the migrations and the political maneuvering surrounding the migrations are resolved in your favor. But it is fair to think that the migrations are less important than WWIII, if it comes to that. I’d even venture that holds for the Czechs as well. If we do have a US/Russia based WWIII, the fallout would affect so many people in so many negative ways, so as to be more important than the migrations, as crucial as they are.

    On the surface, people on the Left seem especially prey to joining cults. Not only do most prominent examples of cults seem to be Leftist cults like Jim Jones, but people on the Left really seem to coalesce around personalities. To carry giant pictures of Mao or Stalin, even Elon Musk. To quote Steve Jobs, like he was some kind of philosopher.

    It is kind of frightening, when you consider how it may all reflect a more general pattern of psychology in their general voting patterns and other influence. Jim Jones had teachers and newspaper people in his cult.

    Unity is the most important value to leftists so they’re psychologically primed for the cult life.

    I had a very similar experience with a younger family member in the early 1990s. He was into EST/"Landmark" in SoCal.

    Similar exchange too, only my point after many similar "full court press" charges on his part was, "I see your emotion coming up strongly in reaction to my disinterest in your group. What's up with that, do you know?"

    He claimed he wasn't getting emotional, that it was part of the Method (or something) to push the other person till they "could face their own resistance to it."

    I noted that I wasn't resisting it, I was simply not interested. He replied that disinterest WAS resistance.

    He kept pushing, I kept sitting there observing dispassionately, and finally he went ballistic, to which I reacted viscerally by laughing. Not to be mean. His behavior, tone, argument tactics, posture, etc., all struck my brain's humor-centers. If he'd been a stranger I probably would have been more guarded--felt the laugh but my caution-centers would have reined it in. And if we'd been closer, maybe he would've done a better job of pushing my buttons, who knows.

    He recoiled, flashed his eyes, and hissed, "Some day smug people like you will get their comeuppance"--or words to that effect. His behavior struck me as reptilian-defensive, though I wouldn't do a David Icke take on that. I figured that his cultic exposure had taken him apart down to that level of functioning, which was sad and concerning, but I wasn't close enough to intervene and none of his closer relatives cared to. They were just happy he lived three time zones away.

    One of the things that people were taught in est was that if they couldn’t persuade others to take the training, they hadn’t really “gotten it.” Hence the pressure they put on friends and family members.

    College professor and faculty lesbians lick their lusty chops at each new year’s crop of dewy fresh babes who are ripe like peaches to be plucked. Granted, the male professors and faculty at colleges and universities eagerly await each new batch of beaver like howling horndogs too. I’ve seen it and heard it, folks. It’s true.

    These college lesbians wouldn’t admit for a second that they love to prowl for that fresh pussy when the late summer and autumn leaves start tumbling down. Well, some of the more honest college lesbians would admit that Sailer has a point, but not a lot.

  • “Ballet has seemed to flag before, but reviving it requires a Pavlova, ZiZi Jeanmaire, or Baryshnikov: an impossible blend of physical technique, acting skills, and charisma. Those conditions are not fulfilled in a case where the hype has so little to support it.”

    Ballet is hardly flagging. When Balanchine came to the US, there was no ballet. There’s a regional ballet company in every town now. Perhaps ballet is overextended, and will contract, but right now, it’s almost mainstream. The standards at the NYCB today are dizzyingly high. The corps is first-rate (not like in the 70s, when it was a laughing-stock) and dancers like Tiler Peck and Megan Fairchild have techniques that are better than the current crop of Russians.

    This push for “brown ballerinas” is interesting and not in itself a bad thing. A middle class population always produces a critical mass of stage mothers and ballerina wannabees. What’s unacceptable is lowering standards to push a “brown ballerina” to the top at a major company, and the nasty contempt that is constantly spewed by the diversity pushers.

    I won’t bother to supply links and quotes, you can look them up yourself, suffice it to say that it’s the usual childish black supremacism combined with contempt for whiteness. This is galling, and it’s spreading to all black dancers now. They’ve all got “brown ballerina” Instagram accounts, Dance Magazine (which is run by ballet rejects who washed out of modern dance) has degenerated to the level of Tiger Beat and gives them a platform.

    Nobody within the power structure of Rome was tweeting out "death to Rome", unlike today when America's ruling class seems almost nakedly hostile to "their own" country.

    Has this ever happened before, where a ruling class had basically no ambition other than eliminating most of the people they ruled over?

  • A panel discussion Monday afternoon at Harvard on a topic I went over in Taki's Magazine three weeks ago:
  • @AnotherDad

    What good is your vegetarian diet? It doesn’t seem to improve health in any way.
     
    I'm guessing there has been some adaptation in rec1man's Tamil Brahmins so that vegetarianism is less harmful to him than it is to most people. White guys should absolutely not be vegetarians (push yourself toward paleo without being a nut about it). And it's a really bad idea for pregnant white women as well.

    Mostly it serves as a signalling device--tribal marker and bonding agent. A simple one, but in function not unlike all the more baroque things the Ashkenazi developed to separate themselves from the surrounding gentiles, create barriers to interaction and thus help defend against defection or infection.

    Abstaining from meat two thousands years ago in tropical India must have made a lot of sense to avoid nasty diseases. Meat avoidance has also the social function of delimiting who you can socialise with.
    But today with modern hygiene and animal husbandry it doesn’t make any sense. Unless you are a believer in hinduism.

  • I saw Don Giovanni tonight at the Pacific Opera Project. It got me thinking about how long Mozart has until they come for him too as part of #MeToo. On the one hand, he's Mozart. On the other hand, have you ever paid attention to his operas? Beethoven, for example, was scandalized by Mozart's and...

    How do you explain Warner Bros cartoons (see my posts above) or the Marx Bros (Carmen in the Cocoanuts' "shirt song," and the priceless version of Il trovatore in Night at the Opera)?

    Every generation rejects the culture of the one before it--see (That's The) Rhythm of the Day" from 30s film Dancing Lady. The real issue is that there were limited sources of entertainment then. Everyone saw many of the same movies, heard much of the same music. Even when I was in jr. high, Top 40 played everything: old Motown, whiny ballads, country, glitter rock, and the occasional novelty song. Network TV had annual showings of GWTW, The Wizard of Oz, and Yellow Submarine. You couldn't avoid encountering other genres, whether you liked them or not.

    Now you can listen to streaming services that play only Smooth Jazz or Angry White Male Thrash. You choose your Netflix, and may never see a classic film unless someone in your family likes TCM.

    Most of all, if you don't encounter classics in school, you may never encounter them at all. Our school band played "Marche slave," the choir sang "Carol of the Bells," and we had Johnny Tremaine in both novel and movie form. Teachers gave us excerpts from Alcott and Dylan Thomas. God only knows what the kids are getting now.

    Hollywood, Disney included, cheapened classical music by turning it into nothing more than a backdrop for cute cartoon figures.
    I am furious, not grateful, that when I hear Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice I see Mickey Mouse.

  • From The Guardian: Do you realize that Beyonce has only won 22 Grammys? Black megalomania can be pretty entertaining, as African dictator Big Men like Idi Amin have demonstrated, but just how seriously do we have to take it?
  • The example you gave is not a fugue. It is a Prelude no. 1, from Book 1 of the Well Tempered Clavier. And this is not a distinction without a difference, so don’t try that crap on me. Bach’s preludes are homophonic in nature, whereas a fugue is the quintessential contrapuntal expression. What this means, then, is that for the umpteenth time, YOU’RE WRONG!

    Either you’re a troll or some flavor of retard. Youtube thinks it’s a fugue, take it up with them. If the example used is causing your palsy to flare, find a Bach fugue that doesn’t. We were discussing the validity of the test, not obscure baroque naming conventions. Stay on topic.

    Then see my latest post, which contains 3 more Youtube-certified fugues, where I conclusively demonstrate that my test works as advertised and that all your name calling would have been more aptly direct inward.

    And I’m not dodging sh*t. See the post above.

    But since we can both agree that you’re impeccably credentialed, highly experienced and nigh omniscient in all things musical, and we also agree that I have no credentials whatsoever, have virtually no experience and am just some random internet trash talker, I propose the following:

    Odds 10:1, my $100 to your $1,000. Proceeds are to be sent in the form of a donation to iSteve by the loser, which he can confirm on receipt.

    I will compose a passable two-hand piano fugue of at least 3 minutes length. It will be uploaded and linked to by the time indicated in your acceptance post, should you accept, on Monday of next week. Failure to meet the deadline will mean I automatically lose. Passability will be defined as the following: Of some large number of randomly selected Americans, more than half would confuse it with something done by any well-known but unspecified composer of the baroque era.

    Whether or not the fugue is passable will be judged by iSteve. If it is judged to be passable and is submitted by the deadline, then you lose.

    Deal?
