David Brooks writes in the New York Times:

Sundar Pichai Should Resign as Google’s C.E.O.

Judging from this clip, Principal Skinner would appear to have what it takes to be the frontrunner for the job.

Seriously, is there an Inner Party that actually understands itself? Is there really a Mustapha Mond such as at the end of “Brave New World” or an O’Brien like at the end of “1984” who could lucidly explain the way the world really works?

Could the current CEO of Google provide you with an intellectually interesting justification of his actions?

Or is it TED Talk cliches all the way down?

    “is there an Inner Party that actually understands itself?” The USSR left me with the impression that once Stalin was dead and Beria disposed of, there were people at the top who knew the score. But it wasn’t until Gorbie that any of them grasped the nettle. What happened next probably explains their reluctance to do so.

    Post-Stalin, or more exactly post-Beria, the top echelons of the Party came to an agreement to stop the purging and the war of all-against-all. Post-Mao, post-Red Guards/Gang of Four China came to the same agreement.

    I don't think the Current Year is anywhere close to that point.

    No, there isn’t a grand end in mind. Just as there wasn’t some supremely organized end that would have went well with the last housing bubble. In the end, we will end up in a collapse. The longer it takes to happen, the worse it will be. Maybe not in the next decade. Maybe by the end of the century when fewer than a few million people worldwide are in productive, wealth-creating jobs while the entire rest of humanity are either in FIRE type rent seeking industries or are lifelong welfare basket cases, like the entire continent of Africa.

  6. Google is anti-White. Google-controlled YouTube is anti-White. The Democrat Party in California is anti-White. We are in a historical moment where political power will be taken from one group and reclaimed by another. White Core Americans in California, and the rest of the United States, will soon dislodge the anti-White elements from the media, academia, banking, the military and government bureaucracies.

    Debt and demography are going to destroy the evil Globalizers. Google is a few dozen anti-White rodents. That is who has the power currently at Google. All White Core Americans need to do is remove the few dozen anti-White rats causing all the problems and that will be that.

    Perhaps the young people have figured out that the Deep State of the American Empire is in bed with the few dozen anti-White rodents who are currently running Google. The YouTube video makers who have seen their videos de-monetized and de-platformed certainly understand that Google is in bed with treasonous elements in the Deep State of the American Empire.

    A lot of these problems will be solved when the tech bubble collapses. White Core Americans should do everything they can to bring on the collapse of the tech bubble. The tech bubble collapse will solve the Google problem.

    Youtube doesn't decide what advertisers want to pay for. They are forced to make such decisions or advertisers will further cut themselves out of Youtube. I wish they would have more of a spine, but I can't blame a private company for wanting to make money.

    They provide free unlimited access to those who call them 'anti-white rodents' and are under constant attack from the a dozen different special interests.

    Video hosting on this scale is no simple task.

    Derbyshire was cut from the masthead of a publication after he'd had serial incidents of sticking his thumb in the eye of other employees there. He wasn't on salary there. He received a per diem. You're forgetting his function there, which was to write somewhat comic articles of a sort Florence King, Meghan Cox Gurdon, and Cathy Seipp used to write. Only he wasn't funny anymore.

    There were a mess of complaints about Murray's berth at AEI, but he was retained.

    Only Jason Richwine is a good fit for your complaint. (He retained his contributor's slot at NR, btw).

    I still can’t get over the memo that Babu wrote to his employees. That’s how you expect a grammar school teacher to talk to second graders. It was revelatory. Google is pretty much an adult daycare center now. Most of what goes on is a form of dress up where these overgrown toddlers pretend to be in charge of a fantasy world.

    I’ve made this point and Vox Day has written a whole book on it. Once the SJW’s start to arrive, the firm has ceased to be a serious business. Google is a stodgy old company living off past glories and oligopoly protection. It is boiling off the smart risk takers and replacing them with diversity hires to police those unable to get better work elsewhere.

  12. Google has pushed Code2040. Code2040 is a celebration of when Whites will be a minority in the United States. The gutless politician whores in the Republican Party are silent about Google pushing this anti-White Code2040 propaganda.

    Google is anti-White and it must be destroyed. Coward scum like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are implicity collaborating with Google in their plans to replace White Core Americans in the United States. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell push mass legal immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders.

    Only the Alt-Right has the bravery and courage to stand up against anti-White Google. Google and YouTube are run by a few dozen anti-white rats. The Republican Party, if it wanted to, could targetize and destroy the few dozen anti-White rats running Google.

    Code2040 is a declaration of war against White Core Americans. Now is the time for all White Core Americans to declare war on Google.

    Code2040 will soon get a response from White Core Americans.

  15. Brooks writes:

    What we have is a legitimate tension. Damore is describing a truth on one level; his sensible critics are describing a different truth, one that exists on another level. He is championing scientific research; they are championing gender equality. It takes a little subtlety to harmonize these strands, but it’s doable.

    No, it’s not. If men and women are different in abilities, interests or a combination of the two, you will have unequal outcomes for various tasks. Damore’s truth and gender equality cannot coexist.

    Perhaps Brooks believes that those who champion gender equality define equality as equal access and acceptance. If so, he is wrong. They define equality as numeric equality.

    Brooks is an old-school liberal, the type who deep down know that there are genetic differences between men and women and among the various races/ethnicities but who also believe that women and NAMs weren’t and aren’t getting a fair shake from white men (non-Jewish, of course). As a result, they backed policies to promote women and minorities and to bring white men down a notch but always with a quiet understanding that we shouldn’t let these policies go too far or to take the rhetoric too seriously.

    What his type didn’t anticipate was that the next generation would, in fact, believe the rhetoric, to hold it as the truth since every pillar of society – teachers, government leaders, business leaders, the media, academia, the military – told them that this was the truth. What’s more, society severely punishes those challenge the rhetoric so it must be true.

    And once you accept the rhetoric as the Truth, you very quickly start to wonder why the old guard liberals – Brooks, academia, etc. – are letting all this racism and discrimination continue. The policies that they enacted to rectify the situation have failed, yet the old guard does nothing. (The old guard, of course, understands why the policies have failed.)

    Naturally, you get angry, as seen by all the screaming on college campuses and the screeching of countless diversity seminars. You also start to demand more strenous policies to stop the senseless racism of white males. If they won’t give up their racism voluntarily, we’ll force them to stop – or just push them out of positions of power.

    Brooks and other older liberals are being passed by and pushed aside. And they’re not too happy about it. (They might also be a tad worried about what this Red Guard might do to society as a whole.) They’re trying to rein back in this new generation. This column is Brooks pulling them aside and saying, “Hey, look, we might not have told you the complete truth about white racism and genetic differences.”

    But it’s too late. Brooks will just be seen as a coward and closet bigot. Look at the most popular comments for the column. They’re all against Brooks. The Red Guard doesn’t tolerate people who challenge the Truth.

    As the old guard falls by the wayside – either through age or being pushed out – they will be replaced by the true believers. And the true believers will push much harder for on-the-ground results. No more waiting decades for policies to get blacks on par with whites. We want results now, and we will ratchet up the pressure and punishment of any and all until that happens.

    "It takes a little subtlety to harmonize these strands"

    Brooks will never wow us with the requisite subtlety, because it's undoable. You cannot reconcile the scientific fact of gender inequality with the goal of gender equality. Not even through the rhetorical legerdemain that's Brooks' bread and butter. He can't square this circle.

    The old "equality of opportunity, not equality of outcomes" won't fly with the harpies. Mild and temporary (how many generations has it been, again?) affirmative action won't, either. The best you can do is hope the diversicrats pass you over, as they did Silicon Valley for a long time. Or you rely upon "there is much ruin in a company" and hope it won't hurt your bottom line.

    Or you get enlightened, start Noticing, and tell the jackals to face reality or hit the road.

    Considering Brooks is a neocon, actually he, or rather his kind, were passed over long ago. Back in the 60s by the New Left, which busted open the Ruling Consensus and broke the back of the Old Liberal Order. PC was the creation of Boomers, or at least they instituted, sometime after the Long March Through the Institutions. That was long after the Brooksies of the world already pushed conservatives to the side to make room for themselves on the right.

    This next generation, the ones raised under PC, they don't even speak the same language as Brooks. Now the Brookses of the world could just ignore them and continue to speak the old words to the only people who buy newspapers anymore,which is old people like him. But his job is being threatened as much by the shift on the right as the sea change that already took place on the left. Which shift was provoked by the excesses of the New New Left, admittedly.

    Not to get too bogged down, but basically even if Brooks' constituency in the middle disappears he could still make a living as a token (barely) rightist who liberals can stand listening to. But not if he doesn't understand the right anymore. Even leftists will notice that at some point. And, of course, he can't understand the right anymore because the right is reacting to the left that he doesn't understand either.

    I guess what I'm saying is that Brooks types have been passed and pushed aside more than once. They can't reposition themselves this time, because the Overton Window has shifted and for the first time in a long time some actual rightist positions have been allowed in the national discussion. Token rightists are losing their homes and heading for the hills.

    Brooks retains his paycheck, but intellectually he's already in the hills, with the neoconservative, neverTrump refugees. And they ain't forming up any Wolverines.

    What we have is a tension. Damore is describing reality; his critics are describing a vision, one that exists in their imagination. He is championing scientific understanding; they are championing Utopian fantasy. It takes a little weed to harmonize these strands; a big dooby.
     
    Fixed.

    You assume a lot about Brooks' secret inner thoughts and motivations, all of them exculpatory.

    What if he is an Entryist for the Red Guard?

    Man does x. X inevitably leads to y. Man tsks and disappears. What would Occam's analysis be?

    Since we actually * don't know * Brooks' secret inner thoughts and motivations.

    I know we have plenty to be angry about but just keep in mind that there are Jews on our side who I do not believe are controlled opposition. Ron Unz provides this forum, for instance. Stephen Miller. David Cole. Finkelstein. Those who voted for Trump. There are others. It's good to be critical enough to cause introspection but we don't want to unite and get smashed, we want to divide and conquer. Hold out the olive branch and the arrows like the bald eagle does. Avoid epithets for this reason.

    The PC cliches may not extend all the way down, but they run quite deep, I think because even people at the top are so deathly afraid of saying anything that could be construed as offensive, that they have to make these cliches the focus on their internal dialogue – what they tell themselves when they are alone and no one else is around in order to avoid a possibly career-ending slip-up.

    So is there an O’Brien or Mustapha Mond? I doubt it, because to make such exertions to believe in what one knows at some level causes one to descend into madness. For the liberal elite, survival lies in insanity.

    What is more insane – pushing one’s child to become gender fluid, or pushing one’s child to become gender fluid in order to defend one’s social status? The pragmatic concern that causes one to sacrifice the mental stability of one’s child adds a dimension of Morlock cruelty to Eloi foolishness.

    Leavened with huge dollops of intersectional guilt–money and power are after all forms of Privilege(TM), which puts the holders of money and power “on the wrong side of history” from their intersectional critics. Fortunately one can expiate (some) of that guilt by speaking Power to Truth spoken by those on the “wrong side of history.”

    It strikes me this is its strength and likely fatal weakness. At the moment there's no single institution from which this shit emanates, secret or open. The dogma holds sway over both political parties, commerce, the military. Level the Democratic party with such as Trump's victory and it metastasizes into the bipartisan "resistance".

    Even its vague, illogical and endlessly self-contradicting nature makes the Narrative stronger; it's hard to grab a hold of something that has no real substance. But the worst part is it's all masked self-interest, and the self-interested don't even seem to understand, even as they doggedly pursue their self-interest under the guise of social justice.

    Blacks are naive to throw in with immigrants and refugees who harm their employment prospects? Nah. They see the bigger picture. Their position will not be improved through thrift and industry in a fair society. They can't win that way and they know it. Their position will improve through political power--they've already managed to carve out an out-sized degree of autonomy and influence purely through political action--demagogy really. Same goes for the Hispanics who ally with them, despite the high degree of hatred between the communities. Gays and Muslims?

    Everyone, except the cuckservatives, has made the same calculation, and it's the right one. It's all ethnic and identity warfare, rationalized as liberal politics.

    That's because the policy outcomes come first and the arguments get made up later. There is an Inner Party on the important stuff: war, cheap labor, internal population movement, etc. The ideology is disposable trash. There's no reason for it to make sense.

    I like the cut of your jib(s), my man, but I have some good news/bad news for you.

    Goolag's price/earnings ratio is a healthy and defensible 30.

    Facebook is similar at 31.

    Netflix stands at 100 -- but its growth is strong, so this high P/E may be investor anticipation of stronger future earnings.

    Amazon has a hair-raising P/E of 275, but is also growing gangbusters.

  26. If this were a Facebook post I’d click “Like”

    I had cause to listen to an explanation of dekulakization last night and it falls somewhat into the aegis here – Marxist missionary/demagogues went out to the country, found the most miserable, jealous and discontent losers, persuaded them that the kulaks who had a small measure of success were responsible for their own failures, got them on board, rounded up the kulaks and off to Siberia they went.

    That’s usually where the conservative narrative of all things Marxism ends though, and the pivot is typically made right from this point to defend all misuse and exploitation of capitalism.

    The trouble is – far above the kulaks were , and are, elites. Theses elites do exploit their lessers, all of us, through misuse of capitalism.

    And right here – after the narrative of the kulaks, is found the conservative defending these elites.

    Which circles right into the question Mr. Sailer, “Seriously, is there an Inner Party that actually understands itself?”

    Answer: on the level you are asking “no”, but at a level of a social “mind” that’s selected for by anthropogenic forces, sure, of course there is.

    The elite exploit to perpetuate their elitism. They are morally banal. They are often well-kempt, well-dressed, well-groomed, of excellent hygeine and all around classy by appearance and they suit themselves well to the inclinations of conservatives – but they are not in the least bit possessed of a conservative ethos of shared community. And they are utterly morally banal.

    [MORE]

    They have been hollowing out your cities and economies and sending jobs overseas while locking overseas workers in low cost geographies using “free trade” agreements and looking the other way not thinking too hard about it all along while you complain that immigrants are taking jobs while they understand quite well that they are sending the jobs over a fence neither you nor immigrants can cross but their elite visas and capital easily traverse. The free movement of capital – without – the concommitant free movement of labor.

    And … here comes the conservative … defending this.

    Everyone becomes frustrated. Everyone gets hurt. Everyone blames each other. But the conservative dutifully defends the elite and out of this pressure cooker the conservative is found by the peasants to be a kulak who should be dekulakized and the peasant is found by the conservative to be a robber.

    I’ve been watching conservatives and libertarians defend these guys my entire career, my entire adult life, while they seem to think they are defending “capitalism” – and even in close proximity where you can as much as point a finger at it and say “there, there, can’t you see exactly what they are doing, right there” … all that comes back is a stare, a frightened stare.

    I’ll be your Mustapha Mond, Mr. Sailer. Stockholm Syndrome. You all have it. Conservatives – terrified of the peasants coming to dekulakize you: Stockholm Syndrome. Peasants – i.e. “liberals”, some indeed malcontents but most simply looking up the nose of a genuine emptied out market bereft of opportunity.
    The conservatives / kulaks defend the elites in the false hope of reciprocation. There will be no reciprocation. Ever
    The liberals / peasants, intuiting the power of the elites to be irresistable, blame the conservatives / kulaks, who they intuit to be vulnerable, hoping this earns some favor with the elites while buying them another day. They too hold false hope of reciprocation.

    That’s how it works. The “center” breaks and everyone loses, sometimes even the elites.

    Every insult is specifically chosen as an especial slight upon the symbols of all one holds dear and sacred.

    The course of judeo-america is to take everything White and manly and reduce it to a risible raped mess.

    Everything a man aspires or holds as greater than life itself will be traduced and thrown down to be mocked and trampled under foot.

    Yes. Mental illness or, really, illness generally is a problematic area for moderns. It's obvious that Natural Law is the tool you want to define illness properly. However, this tool is not available to moderns, so they have to flail about.

    Pope Benedict is interesting. He's one of those guys whom everybody claims is smart but who never actually seems to get around to saying anything smart. He is facile with technical language. He has a scholarly style. But his actual ideas never strike me as being interesting or even particularly adult. To meme, he is what Theologians think smart people are like.

    In Greek mythology, every hero has gods who protect/support him, gods who attack & seek to destroy him.

    Google is Mt. Olympus of Modern Economy. Its biggies are the gods of internet, the Other reality that shapes the future of all other realities.

    What Zeus wants, Hera opposes. What Athena protects, Ares curses and harasses.

    A hero is someone with the guidance of some gods, but he must always go against other gods.

    No hero was ever approved by all the gods.

    In current era, all the gods are on the side of PC. So , heroism is bound to be much more tragic. There is only the network of heroes but gods control all the stage, all the platforms.

    And the stars are going out one by one in the constellation of heroes as Google, Facebook, and Twitter — Goofatwit — demonizes, demonetizes, and demotes dissident voices .

    That’s the way to keep your job for the average employee. Things would be quite a bit better if men wouldn’t spend their whole lives in hock. Imagine if you had a year or two savings and/or coupla rental houses, what they call “fuck you money”. That’s still fairly easy to get to for a single guy.

    Exactly. Small business is freedom. I wonder why Republicans don't punish their enemies as Democrats do. When GM went into bankruptcy, Obama used it as an excuse to close down GM car dealerships in small towns across the country. Car dealers are conservative because they have to meet a payroll and control costs. Yet with control of all three branches the Repubs do nothing to hobble academia, state bureaucracy, legacy media.

    Maybe the tax plan will end Federal deduction of State income taxes - that would hit me in the bank account but stop states like NY FLA and CA from spending the money of more sensible Americans in the heartland.

    If we wanted to win over the kind of people who still think the NYT and MSNBC are truth-delivering organizations, we could encourage them to look at things as cool-headedly and dispassionately as possible. We could say the existing decision making system we inherited from the 20th century is glitchy and suffers from chronic information blockages but that new technologies like YouTube and Twitter are helping to fix that.

    The enormous gap between our lived reality and what “our” “elites” say has simply been caused by the technical limitations of our legacy communication and decision making systems. Collusion between the media, academia, elected officials, bureaucrats and NGOs has just been a problem of the scarcity of broadcast bandwidth, magazine rack space, the costs of printing and the limited number of movie screens. Added to that is the fact that all these old communications technologies were fantastic at one-way communication but terrible at making the rest of us heard.Thankfully the web, social media and mobile devices can help us get past these purely technical handicaps. The old mass media effectively gave some citizens 100,000 ballots while the rest of us were stuck with just the one but lets not argue over spilled milk.

    With things like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and blogs, folks like Jordan Peterson, Steve Sailer and James Damore can help clear up any misunderstandings that may have arisen over a century or so of less than optimal technology for running a liberal democracy that doesn’t want to commit civilizational suicide . It’s all just been an annoying misunderstanding caused by the limitations of our old mass media technology. It hasn’t been a case of malice or selfishness on the part of people who felt they could get away with pretty much anything they wanted.

    That’s how I’d sugar-coat my message to the dangerous normies now in power.

    There is no Inner Party. There is only intersectional dogma, grinding against the gears of reality, emitting shrieks of rage and cognitive dissonance. Haven Monahan hovers just outside the edge of one's field of vision, problematizing the discourse.

    Leavened with huge dollops of intersectional guilt--money and power are after all forms of Privilege(TM), which puts the holders of money and power "on the wrong side of history" from their intersectional critics. Fortunately one can expiate (some) of that guilt by speaking Power to Truth spoken by those on the "wrong side of history."

    It strikes me this is its strength and likely fatal weakness. At the moment there’s no single institution from which this shit emanates, secret or open. The dogma holds sway over both political parties, commerce, the military. Level the Democratic party with such as Trump’s victory and it metastasizes into the bipartisan “resistance”.

    Even its vague, illogical and endlessly self-contradicting nature makes the Narrative stronger; it’s hard to grab a hold of something that has no real substance. But the worst part is it’s all masked self-interest, and the self-interested don’t even seem to understand, even as they doggedly pursue their self-interest under the guise of social justice.

    Blacks are naive to throw in with immigrants and refugees who harm their employment prospects? Nah. They see the bigger picture. Their position will not be improved through thrift and industry in a fair society. They can’t win that way and they know it. Their position will improve through political power–they’ve already managed to carve out an out-sized degree of autonomy and influence purely through political action–demagogy really. Same goes for the Hispanics who ally with them, despite the high degree of hatred between the communities. Gays and Muslims?

    What about clergymen? Pope Benedict may be a profound thinker. Your local minister (if he isn't a slippery character) is the V.S. Naipaul character in Guerillas described by the narrator thus, "...he had no important skills...an organizer of boy's clubs". Academics? A few of them. The STEM types suffer from the same confusions which you see in business executives and many of the rest of them trade in sociological fabulism and subscribe to errant nonsense. Lawyers? There you're getting a tad warmer...

    It’s all about Control.

    There are two things people have most difficulty resisting: pain and pleasure.

    Torture, for example, will get most people to talk. People have different pain thresholds, but 99.99% of people will cave under. Jesus is much revered because He stuck it out to the very end. His spirit was stronger than flesh. But most people? Pain wins. Under torture or threat of extreme pain/duress, they cave. This pain can be physical or emotional, but then, emotional pain is a kind of physical pain in the end because the body feels extreme discomfort under emotional trauma. Suppose a parent heard his or her kid got run over by a car. It feels like the parent got hit by a car.

    All those tough Muslim warriors caved under waterboarding. And even a tough Irishman finally spilled the beans to Nicky Santoro.

    Pain is the god greater than anything know to man. Consider SILENCE the Scorsese film. The Japanese Christians cave under physical pain, and the priest caves under emotional pain….. even though he remains true to Jesus and God surreptitiously like Jewish Conversos under Christian domination. He keeps the ember of faith lit in some deep dark crevice in his soul.

    The other thing that people have extreme difficulty resisting is pleasure. Consider all those white folks who are now addicted to meth or some opiods. They’ve become like Chinese in the 19th century addicted to opium. Even though Big Harma sold those opiods to deal with pain, they became pleasure-drugs, and people became addicted to them to go off to lala-land. (And marijuana legalization was pushed under guise of medicinal, even spiritual, qualities as Pot was idealized as drug of the gods that can heal, repair, or redeem just about anything.)

    http://blog.getnugg.com/benefits-of-marijuana/

    People are addicted to pleasure and can’t say NO like Nancy Reagan once told Arnold on Diff’Rent Strokes. “What you talkin’ about, First Lady?”

    Look at addiction to video games. Look at Pachinko madness in Japan. Look at Negroes hooked to drugs and twerking. So many Negroes now got STD’s. And look how the culture itself has gotten pornified with gross humor for belly laughs and sexualization of everything, even prime time shows that glorify adultery and skank behavior. And look at the obesity epidemic among all races. People just can’t say NO to sugar, cream, fat, starch, and etc. Even as they blow up into hippo bubble-butts, they just stuff their faces all the same.

    In the past, pain and pleasure used to be called ‘sticks and carrots’.

    But ‘sticks and carrots’ sound too elemental in the world we live in.

    After all, carrots matter in a world of hunger. It wasn’t long ago that many people’s minds were mainly on food. They ate to live, not for pleasure or to turn into buffalo-butts. So, ‘carrots’ meant something. Pleasure meant simple elemental satisfaction of full belly and survival.

    Also, things were more brutal back then. It was common for government, teachers, parents, and other figures of authority to use blunt means to inflict pain and make people obey. Or simply to punish them. So, ‘sticks’ meant something in those days.

    Now, hunger and brutality are still common all over the world, esp in Africa, Middle East, Latin America, and parts of Asia. But the ‘world’ is dominated by Western Standards, and the use of ‘stick’ no longer applies. Sure, cops are well-armed, but look at BLM riots. Blacks were just allowed to run riot and smash things and mess things up. Cops did very little. US can inflict ultra-pain in OTHER nations but not in the West.

    [MORE]

    As for pleasure, the West is far past hunger. Hunger is not a problem. There is plenty of food. So, pleasure today is about ultra-pleasure. Pleasure not for food to survive but pleasure for pleasure’s sake.

    In the past, pain and pleasure closely co-existed. Without food, there was the pain of hunger. Some food, as in Oliver Twist, meant simple pleasure of survival.
    Now, food is eaten mostly for ultra-pleasure… just like sex is practiced mainly for pleasure since there are pills, condoms, and abortion to nullify any unwanted pregnancy. And there is welfare provided to women who get preggy. And there are lots of drugs to deal with STP. Even homos with HIV have access to expensive drugs and live on to do more bunging.

    Since brutal pain isn’t permitted in the West, it’s not so much the stick but the (pink)slip that matters. If you get the slip, you are destroyed and all your dreams of success and privilege goes poof, up in the air. Getting the slip also leads to shunning by the entire COS or community of success. So, un-PC types need not be beaten up. (But punching ‘Nazis’ is still okay.) They merely need to be threatened with the slip, and that is pain enough. It will not threaten their life. They can still have enough food and roof over their heads. But modern world isn’t about survival. It is about striving for success, and if your career path is destroyed, you are nothing where it really matters in COS. COS is also more important than ever because the middle class is shrinking. The future will be one of have-lots, helots, and underclass.

    As for pleasure, we’re way past carrots. It’s like dog or cat behavior. A starving dog or cat will eat anything, even the cheapest driest pet food. But once you feed them good stuff and they got full bellies, they become more finicky, esp true of cats.
    Similarly, people no longer care about carrots. Consider the scene in PLACES IN THE HEART. Sally Fields has to harvest cotton but doesn’t have enough hands. She has Danny Glover to hep her, but even that Negro isn’t enough. But there are black women willing to work just for corn meal. They needs to eat. Today, fat negresses got cornmeal and grits coming out of their ears and they demands ribs, chickens, shrimp, and burgers and shi* to pack calories to have big booties to twerk all night long. Black womenfolk are no longer virtuous like Aunt Esther. They wanna be like that hot sizzling nasty ass ho Rihanna.

    So, it’s no longer about carrots but about dope or dildos.

    The two gods of America: Slip and Dildo as new Pain and Pleasure.

    Something was going wrong when, with each year, Christmas became more and more a day of Orgasmaterialism, like Black Friday at Walmart and Oprah idiocy.

    This is culture for college-educated people of America. This is Christmas. Hedonistics of Lesbian narcissism and fat negress egotism.

    In the past, most political orders sought to control the system and masses with pain. Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and North Korea are still like that. Threaten people with extreme pain to make them obey. Otto Warmbier learned the hard way. NK is a kingdom of pain… except for upper piggish elites who are like the new bosses in Animal Farm.

    In the West, the Order seeks to control people by addicting them to pleasure(which is also tremendously profitable to lords of Vice Industries and Escapist Entertainment). Whites are losing because they are addicted to pleasure associated with blacks who kick their butts. White boys wet their pants over black sports athletes as their heroes. Even a white homo ‘conservative’ will only take black genitals up his bung. White girls got jungle fever and that means white wombs now make black babies. Whites are addicted to neo-religion of Oprah and MLK worship, the soulful Magic Negro BS. And some white men are even addicted to the pleasure of Cuckiness, supposedly the top fetish among Liberal intellectuals. (It is a bit strange because feeling the pain of humiliation is part of the pleasure. But then, ‘white guilt’ also comes with its masochistic pleasures. It makes one feel holier-than-thou. White self-loathing isn’t just about pain. It’s about masochistic pleasure.)

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/cuckolding-the-sex-fetish-for-intellectuals

    Another pleasure derives from homomania. As homos are so vain, narcissistic, flaming, flamboyant, expressive, and whoopsy-poopsy, people find great entertainment value in that. As churches hang homo flag, it means homo hedonism is what new christianity is about. Also, advertising and Hollywood associated homos with the rainbow and sainthood. Consider how ‘conservative’ SE Cupp bawled with joy when ‘gay marriage’ was passed. Yes, THAT is a ‘conservative’. And even Charles Murray bent over to homomania. Homomania is associated with pain… but it’s an offer you can’t refuse it. Refuse it and you will be made to feel the pain, like decent bakers who won’t make pervert cakes or Carrie Prejean. Obey the Gay. (Incidentally, tranny businesses may be useful to men since it undermines feminism. After all, if men in dress must be accepted as ‘women’ by women, it undermines feminism. Likewise, if any non-black who claimed to be black has to be accepted as ‘black’, it would undermine black power.)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_Prejean

    Because Magic Negro Worship and Homomania are part of the governing ideology, espousing them offers much pleasure. If you worship Magic Negro and homos at Google, you are favored for promotion,and that means more money, more prestige, and more pleasure. If you mutter the slightest skepticism or atheism about Homomania or Magic Negro worship, you are renegade!!! You are not beaten with a stick, but you do get the slip, and then all the super-pleasures of money and status vanish as the magic carpet is pulled under your feet.

    Regulations of pain and pleasure, that is power.

    It sort of makes senses why EU is worshiping the strong beastly Negro and welcoming all these rough-and-tumble Muslims. Like the Eternals in ZARDOZ, they have a secret death wish. They’ve built a rich advanced system but one that is soulless, artificial, severed from roots of life, mendacious, hypocritical, and decadent. But since Western elites are too trapped within the system to do anything about it, the OUTSIDER must come to destroy it. It is a kind of liberation.

  57. Funny the brave new world is being reference to here. I just finished reading it this week for the first time. Both 1984 and brave New World, Zemyatin’s We, A lot of HG Wells, all have characters who serve as the all-knowing, all-powerful puppetmaster character Who explains “the way things is” to the main character. I think that literary trope all goes back to dostoevsky’s grand inquisitor and obviously has been a powerful character influence on literature but also conspiracy theory. But the sad truth is a sailor makes it out to be: the puppet master is a moron who thinks he’s a genius but also has real power, hence doubly dangerous.

    The thing is, really competent people don't make it to the top in business because they aren't politicians or sociopaths. The system simply weeds them out.

    That's why companies are managed by PHB from top to bottom. It's not a bug it's a feature.

    It's like that in the military. The best officers never make it past colonel or Lt. Colonel because they are troop pushers and are not ass kissers and politicians like Colin Powell, Patreus, Abazaid or a host of others. This how we get senseless wars like Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The brass told us we'd welcomed by the locals and be it out in six months. Instead it was one failure after another.

    This is why our system is doomed to failure. No one competent is in charge anywhere. Just morons wit power as you say.

    No, but there really are councils of evil. Inside the inner circles of N. Korea or Iran or Russia or Syria, you would hear stuff that would make you wish that mind bleach existed.

    Today I read that not only did Kim Jong-Un have his uncle and mentor executed by anti-aircraft gun (with his inner circle in attendance) but he had the entire rest of the uncle's family murdered too (some by flame thrower, just to mix things up), not to mention his own brother. Not just the uncle's children but his sisters and brothers and THEIR children and grandchildren. Some of the spouses were spared and sent to remote villages, because he is such a nice guy and doesn't like to hold grudges.

    "is there an Inner Party that actually understands itself?" The USSR left me with the impression that once Stalin was dead and Beria disposed of, there were people at the top who knew the score. But it wasn't until Gorbie that any of them grasped the nettle. What happened next probably explains their reluctance to do so.

    Post-Stalin, or more exactly post-Beria, the top echelons of the Party came to an agreement to stop the purging and the war of all-against-all. Post-Mao, post-Red Guards/Gang of Four China came to the same agreement.

    Exactly. Small business is freedom. I wonder why Republicans don’t punish their enemies as Democrats do. When GM went into bankruptcy, Obama used it as an excuse to close down GM car dealerships in small towns across the country. Car dealers are conservative because they have to meet a payroll and control costs. Yet with control of all three branches the Repubs do nothing to hobble academia, state bureaucracy, legacy media.

His spirit was stronger than flesh. But most people? Pain wins. Under torture or threat of extreme pain/duress, they cave. This pain can be physical or emotional, but then, emotional pain is a kind of physical pain in the end because the body feels extreme discomfort under emotional trauma.

    All those tough Muslim warriors caved under waterboarding. And even a tough Irishman finally spilled the beans to Nicky Santoro.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-d5yU-aQ34

    Pain is the god greater than anything know to man. Consider SILENCE the Scorsese film. The Japanese Christians cave under physical pain, and the priest caves under emotional pain..... even though he remains true to Jesus and God surreptitiously like Jewish Conversos under Christian domination. He keeps the ember of faith lit in some deep dark crevice in his soul.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASU4wvY0CbE&t=2s

    The other thing that people have extreme difficulty resisting is pleasure. Consider all those white folks who are now addicted to meth or some opiods. They've become like Chinese in the 19th century addicted to opium. Even though Big Harma sold those opiods to deal with pain, they became pleasure-drugs, and people became addicted to them to go off to lala-land. (And marijuana legalization was pushed under guise of medicinal, even spiritual, qualities as Pot was idealized as drug of the gods that can heal, repair, or redeem just about anything.)

    People are addicted to pleasure and can't say NO like Nancy Reagan once told Arnold on Diff'Rent Strokes. "What you talkin' about, First Lady?"

    Look at addiction to video games. Look at Pachinko madness in Japan. Look at Negroes hooked to drugs and twerking. So many Negroes now got STD's. And look how the culture itself has gotten pornified with gross humor for belly laughs and sexualization of everything, even prime time shows that glorify adultery and skank behavior. And look at the obesity epidemic among all races. People just can't say NO to sugar, cream, fat, starch, and etc. Even as they blow up into hippo bubble-butts, they just stuff their faces all the same.

    In the past, pain and pleasure used to be called 'sticks and carrots'.

    But 'sticks and carrots' sound too elemental in the world we live in.

    After all, carrots matter in a world of hunger. It wasn't long ago that many people's minds were mainly on food. They ate to live, not for pleasure or to turn into buffalo-butts. So, 'carrots' meant something. Pleasure meant simple elemental satisfaction of full belly and survival.

    Also, things were more brutal back then. It was common for government, teachers, parents, and other figures of authority to use blunt means to inflict pain and make people obey. Or simply to punish them. So, 'sticks' meant something in those days.

    Now, hunger and brutality are still common all over the world, esp in Africa, Middle East, Latin America, and parts of Asia. But the 'world' is dominated by Western Standards, and the use of 'stick' no longer applies. Sure, cops are well-armed, but look at BLM riots. Blacks were just allowed to run riot and smash things and mess things up. Cops did very little. US can inflict ultra-pain in OTHER nations but not in the West.

    As for pleasure, the West is far past hunger. Hunger is not a problem. There is plenty of food. So, pleasure today is about ultra-pleasure. Pleasure not for food to survive but pleasure for pleasure's sake.

    In the past, pain and pleasure closely co-existed. Without food, there was the pain of hunger. Some food, as in Oliver Twist, meant simple pleasure of survival.
    Now, food is eaten mostly for ultra-pleasure... just like sex is practiced mainly for pleasure since there are pills, condoms, and abortion to nullify any unwanted pregnancy. And there is welfare provided to women who get preggy. And there are lots of drugs to deal with STP. Even homos with HIV have access to expensive drugs and live on to do more bunging.

    Since brutal pain isn't permitted in the West, it's not so much the stick but the (pink)slip that matters. If you get the slip, you are destroyed and all your dreams of success and privilege goes poof, up in the air. Getting the slip also leads to shunning by the entire COS or community of success. So, un-PC types need not be beaten up. (But punching 'Nazis' is still okay.) They merely need to be threatened with the slip, and that is pain enough. It will not threaten their life. They can still have enough food and roof over their heads. But modern world isn't about survival. It is about striving for success, and if your career path is destroyed, you are nothing where it really matters in COS. COS is also more important than ever because the middle class is shrinking. The future will be one of have-lots, helots, and underclass.

    As for pleasure, we're way past carrots. It's like dog or cat behavior. A starving dog or cat will eat anything, even the cheapest driest pet food. But once you feed them good stuff and they got full bellies, they become more finicky, esp true of cats.
    Similarly, people no longer care about carrots. Consider the scene in PLACES IN THE HEART. Sally Fields has to harvest cotton but doesn't have enough hands. She has Danny Glover to hep her, but even that Negro isn't enough. But there are black women willing to work just for corn meal. They needs to eat. Today, fat negresses got cornmeal and grits coming out of their ears and they demands ribs, chickens, shrimp, and burgers and shi* to pack calories to have big booties to twerk all night long. Black womenfolk are no longer virtuous like Aunt Esther. They wanna be like that hot sizzling nasty ass ho Rihanna.

    So, it's no longer about carrots but about dope or dildos.

    The two gods of America: Slip and Dildo as new Pain and Pleasure.

    Something was going wrong when, with each year, Christmas became more and more a day of Orgasmaterialism, like Black Friday at Walmart and Oprah idiocy.

    This is culture for college-educated people of America. This is Christmas. Hedonistics of Lesbian narcissism and fat negress egotism.

    In the past, most political orders sought to control the system and masses with pain. Saddam Hussein's Iraq and North Korea are still like that. Threaten people with extreme pain to make them obey. Otto Warmbier learned the hard way. NK is a kingdom of pain... except for upper piggish elites who are like the new bosses in Animal Farm.

    In the West, the Order seeks to control people by addicting them to pleasure(which is also tremendously profitable to lords of Vice Industries and Escapist Entertainment). Whites are losing because they are addicted to pleasure associated with blacks who kick their butts. White boys wet their pants over black sports athletes as their heroes. Even a white homo 'conservative' will only take black genitals up his bung. White girls got jungle fever and that means white wombs now make black babies. Whites are addicted to neo-religion of Oprah and MLK worship, the soulful Magic Negro BS. And some white men are even addicted to the pleasure of Cuckiness, supposedly the top fetish among Liberal intellectuals. (It is a bit strange because feeling the pain of humiliation is part of the pleasure. But then, 'white guilt' also comes with its masochistic pleasures. It makes one feel holier-than-thou. White self-loathing isn't just about pain. It's about masochistic pleasure.)

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/cuckolding-the-sex-fetish-for-intellectuals

    Another pleasure derives from homomania. As homos are so vain, narcissistic, flaming, flamboyant, expressive, and whoopsy-poopsy, people find great entertainment value in that. As churches hang homo flag, it means homo hedonism is what new christianity is about. Also, advertising and Hollywood associated homos with the rainbow and sainthood. Consider how 'conservative' SE Cupp bawled with joy when 'gay marriage' was passed. Yes, THAT is a 'conservative'. And even Charles Murray bent over to homomania. Homomania is associated with pain... but it's an offer you can't refuse it. Refuse it and you will be made to feel the pain, like decent bakers who won't make pervert cakes or Carrie Prejean. Obey the Gay. (Incidentally, tranny businesses may be useful to men since it undermines feminism. After all, if men in dress must be accepted as 'women' by women, it undermines feminism. Likewise, if any non-black who claimed to be black has to be accepted as 'black', it would undermine black power.)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_Prejean

    Because Magic Negro Worship and Homomania are part of the governing ideology, espousing them offers much pleasure. If you worship Magic Negro and homos at Google, you are favored for promotion,and that means more money, more prestige, and more pleasure. If you mutter the slightest skepticism or atheism about Homomania or Magic Negro worship, you are renegade!!! You are not beaten with a stick, but you do get the slip, and then all the super-pleasures of money and status vanish as the magic carpet is pulled under your feet.

    Regulations of pain and pleasure, that is power.

    It sort of makes senses why EU is worshiping the strong beastly Negro and welcoming all these rough-and-tumble Muslims. Like the Eternals in ZARDOZ, they have a secret death wish. They've built a rich advanced system but one that is soulless, artificial, severed from roots of life, mendacious, hypocritical, and decadent. But since Western elites are too trapped within the system to do anything about it, the OUTSIDER must come to destroy it. It is a kind of liberation.

A new government could also claim any real estate or other assets the Silicon Valley titans bought with their profits from the tech stock bubble. I think in terms of civilizational survival. If Eric Schmidt or Larry Page or Sergey Brin is financially wiped out, too bad.

    White Core Americans can dislodge the Globalizers. It seems like fair play to me. Schmidt, Brin and Page take great delight in attacking White Core Americans. Schmidt, Brin and Page have declared war on White Core Americans. White Core Americans are now declaring war on them. anti-White billionaires will find no sanctuary anywhere on the planet when White Core Americans come looking for them in order to deliver some payback.

    Google is anti-White. Google-controlled YouTube is anti-White. The Democrat Party in California is anti-White. We are in a historical moment where political power will be taken from one group and reclaimed by another. White Core Americans in California, and the rest of the United States, will soon dislodge the anti-White elements from the media, academia, banking, the military and government bureaucracies.

    Debt and demography are going to destroy the evil Globalizers. Google is a few dozen anti-White rodents. That is who has the power currently at Google. All White Core Americans need to do is remove the few dozen anti-White rats causing all the problems and that will be that.

    Perhaps the young people have figured out that the Deep State of the American Empire is in bed with the few dozen anti-White rodents who are currently running Google. The YouTube video makers who have seen their videos de-monetized and de-platformed certainly understand that Google is in bed with treasonous elements in the Deep State of the American Empire.

    A lot of these problems will be solved when the tech bubble collapses. White Core Americans should do everything they can to bring on the collapse of the tech bubble. The tech bubble collapse will solve the Google problem.

    “YouTube video makers who have seen their videos de-monetized and de-platformed certainly understand that Google is in bed with treasonous elements in the Deep State of the American Empire.”

    Youtube doesn’t decide what advertisers want to pay for. They are forced to make such decisions or advertisers will further cut themselves out of Youtube. I wish they would have more of a spine, but I can’t blame a private company for wanting to make money.

    They provide free unlimited access to those who call them ‘anti-white rodents’ and are under constant attack from the a dozen different special interests.

    Video hosting on this scale is no simple task.

    The thing is, really competent people don’t make it to the top in business because they aren’t politicians or sociopaths. The system simply weeds them out.

    That’s why companies are managed by PHB from top to bottom. It’s not a bug it’s a feature.

    It’s like that in the military. The best officers never make it past colonel or Lt. Colonel because they are troop pushers and are not ass kissers and politicians like Colin Powell, Patreus, Abazaid or a host of others. This how we get senseless wars like Iraq and Afghanistan.

    That being said, the issue is that so much money and so many people and so many organizations are invested in the notion that the only thing holding women down is men. It is taken as a truism in federal and state law that any gender imbalance against women must be sexism. Therefore, these people and organizations exist to make money off “fixing” the already proven problem.

    So when he dares question the assumed premise—when he dares say sexism is not the cause of this imbalance—the people who depend on this premise being assumed jump into action. They must protect the premise of sexism=cause of imbalance, otherwise their jobs will dry up.

    Hence the outrage.

    The horrendous evil doers who wrote the Civil Rights Act and Title IX into law made sure you never needed to prove sexism/racism/etc. caused the imbalance; it is assumed in those laws. Devious.

    Brooks writes:

    What we have is a legitimate tension. Damore is describing a truth on one level; his sensible critics are describing a different truth, one that exists on another level. He is championing scientific research; they are championing gender equality. It takes a little subtlety to harmonize these strands, but it’s doable.
     
    No, it's not. If men and women are different in abilities, interests or a combination of the two, you will have unequal outcomes for various tasks. Damore's truth and gender equality cannot coexist.

    Perhaps Brooks believes that those who champion gender equality define equality as equal access and acceptance. If so, he is wrong. They define equality as numeric equality.

    Brooks is an old-school liberal, the type who deep down know that there are genetic differences between men and women and among the various races/ethnicities but who also believe that women and NAMs weren't and aren't getting a fair shake from white men (non-Jewish, of course). As a result, they backed policies to promote women and minorities and to bring white men down a notch but always with a quiet understanding that we shouldn't let these policies go too far or to take the rhetoric too seriously.

    What his type didn't anticipate was that the next generation would, in fact, believe the rhetoric, to hold it as the truth since every pillar of society - teachers, government leaders, business leaders, the media, academia, the military - told them that this was the truth. What's more, society severely punishes those challenge the rhetoric so it must be true.

    And once you accept the rhetoric as the Truth, you very quickly start to wonder why the old guard liberals - Brooks, academia, etc. - are letting all this racism and discrimination continue. The policies that they enacted to rectify the situation have failed, yet the old guard does nothing. (The old guard, of course, understands why the policies have failed.)

    Naturally, you get angry, as seen by all the screaming on college campuses and the screeching of countless diversity seminars. You also start to demand more strenous policies to stop the senseless racism of white males. If they won't give up their racism voluntarily, we'll force them to stop - or just push them out of positions of power.

    Brooks and other older liberals are being passed by and pushed aside. And they're not too happy about it. (They might also be a tad worried about what this Red Guard might do to society as a whole.) They're trying to rein back in this new generation. This column is Brooks pulling them aside and saying, "Hey, look, we might not have told you the complete truth about white racism and genetic differences."

    But it's too late. Brooks will just be seen as a coward and closet bigot. Look at the most popular comments for the column. They're all against Brooks. The Red Guard doesn't tolerate people who challenge the Truth.

    As the old guard falls by the wayside - either through age or being pushed out - they will be replaced by the true believers. And the true believers will push much harder for on-the-ground results. No more waiting decades for policies to get blacks on par with whites. We want results now, and we will ratchet up the pressure and punishment of any and all until that happens.

    “It takes a little subtlety to harmonize these strands”

    Brooks will never wow us with the requisite subtlety, because it’s undoable. You cannot reconcile the scientific fact of gender inequality with the goal of gender equality. Not even through the rhetorical legerdemain that’s Brooks’ bread and butter. He can’t square this circle.

    The old “equality of opportunity, not equality of outcomes” won’t fly with the harpies. Mild and temporary (how many generations has it been, again?) affirmative action won’t, either. The best you can do is hope the diversicrats pass you over, as they did Silicon Valley for a long time. Or you rely upon “there is much ruin in a company” and hope it won’t hurt your bottom line.

    Or you get enlightened, start Noticing, and tell the jackals to face reality or hit the road.

    I'm so sick of conservatives hurling themselves under this bandwagon. Sure, they stayed silent - at best - when people like Derbyshire, Richwine and Murray were targeted. Sure, they're cowardly little pissants when it comes to racial differences. But when it comes to noticing that women - who couldn't beat up even them - are different, they are ON it.

    Derbyshire was cut from the masthead of a publication after he’d had serial incidents of sticking his thumb in the eye of other employees there. He wasn’t on salary there. He received a per diem. You’re forgetting his function there, which was to write somewhat comic articles of a sort Florence King, Meghan Cox Gurdon, and Cathy Seipp used to write. Only he wasn’t funny anymore.

    Considering Brooks is a neocon, actually he, or rather his kind, were passed over long ago. Back in the 60s by the New Left, which busted open the Ruling Consensus and broke the back of the Old Liberal Order. PC was the creation of Boomers, or at least they instituted, sometime after the Long March Through the Institutions. That was long after the Brooksies of the world already pushed conservatives to the side to make room for themselves on the right.

    This next generation, the ones raised under PC, they don’t even speak the same language as Brooks. Now the Brookses of the world could just ignore them and continue to speak the old words to the only people who buy newspapers anymore,which is old people like him. But his job is being threatened as much by the shift on the right as the sea change that already took place on the left. Which shift was provoked by the excesses of the New New Left, admittedly.

    Not to get too bogged down, but basically even if Brooks’ constituency in the middle disappears he could still make a living as a token (barely) rightist who liberals can stand listening to. But not if he doesn’t understand the right anymore. Even leftists will notice that at some point. And, of course, he can’t understand the right anymore because the right is reacting to the left that he doesn’t understand either.

    I guess what I’m saying is that Brooks types have been passed and pushed aside more than once. They can’t reposition themselves this time, because the Overton Window has shifted and for the first time in a long time some actual rightist positions have been allowed in the national discussion. Token rightists are losing their homes and heading for the hills.

    Brooks retains his paycheck, but intellectually he’s already in the hills, with the neoconservative, neverTrump refugees. And they ain’t forming up any Wolverines.

Fair enough. But they kept them all together parked right next to each other so when one caught fire due to a heater malfunction, the whole fleet went up.

    The thing is, really competent people don't make it to the top in business because they aren't politicians or sociopaths. The system simply weeds them out.

    That's why companies are managed by PHB from top to bottom. It's not a bug it's a feature.

    It's like that in the military. The best officers never make it past colonel or Lt. Colonel because they are troop pushers and are not ass kissers and politicians like Colin Powell, Patreus, Abazaid or a host of others. This how we get senseless wars like Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The brass told us we'd welcomed by the locals and be it out in six months. Instead it was one failure after another.

    This is why our system is doomed to failure. No one competent is in charge anywhere. Just morons wit power as you say.

    Real leaders have unnatural confidence and freedom from doubt once they have made up their mind that they are on the right course. Real leaders also have true human empathy so that they consider what is the best course not just for themselves but for others. Humans are evolved to respond to leadership because all the leaderless bands of monkey got eaten by the ones with leaders.

    Sociopaths have no human empathy at all, but they have the ability to project that same unnatural confidence and freedom from doubt so we mistake them for true leaders. They are (to borrow from the Nazis) like the poisonous mushrooms that mimic the appearance of tasty ones.

    Funny the brave new world is being reference to here. I just finished reading it this week for the first time. Both 1984 and brave New World, Zemyatin's We, A lot of HG Wells, all have characters who serve as the all-knowing, all-powerful puppetmaster character Who explains "the way things is" to the main character. I think that literary trope all goes back to dostoevsky's grand inquisitor and obviously has been a powerful character influence on literature but also conspiracy theory. But the sad truth is a sailor makes it out to be: the puppet master is a moron who thinks he's a genius but also has real power, hence doubly dangerous.

    That being said, the issue is that so much money and so many people and so many organizations are invested in the notion that the only thing holding women down is men. It is taken as a truism in federal and state law that any gender imbalance against women must be sexism. Therefore, these people and organizations exist to make money off "fixing" the already proven problem.

    So when he dares question the assumed premise---when he dares say sexism is not the cause of this imbalance---the people who depend on this premise being assumed jump into action. They must protect the premise of sexism=cause of imbalance, otherwise their jobs will dry up.

    Hence the outrage.

    The horrendous evil doers who wrote the Civil Rights Act and Title IX into law made sure you never needed to prove sexism/racism/etc. caused the imbalance; it is assumed in those laws. Devious.

    It was that paragon of Republican virtue, George Bush (the father, not the son), who signed the bill that gave us disparate impact. He also gave us, as Derb has endlessly pointed out, H1-b visas, the visa lottery, etc.

    And he would have been a two-term president if not for Ross Perot who got 19 million votes from people who were pissed off even then. But every R just whistled past the graveyard and now they’ve got DJT (PBUH). And they still don’t get the message.

    Whether the wars are 'senseless' or not, the job of the generals is to organize troops to fight them. The decision to go to war is that of the civilian officialdom.

    It might occur to you that Andrew Bacevich, who was cashiered from the military as a Lt Col after perpetrating an industrial accident, slams Gen. Petreus out of professional jealousy, and nothing more elevated than that.

    Bacevich took the fall for the Doha explosion but who knows whether he was really responsible.

    These things always seem incredibly stupid in retrospect. They kept a whole bunch of trucks fully loaded with munitions so that they would be ready to go into combat on a moment’s notice. Fair enough. But they kept them all together parked right next to each other so when one caught fire due to a heater malfunction, the whole fleet went up.

    The contention was that Bacevich had instructed his subordinates to disable an alarm system because the false alarms were annoying. The contention was not that he was the superior to someone who'd done something foolish, but that he'd told people to do something foolish. That may be true or untrue, of course.

    I wouldn't bother about it (people make mistakes and it's graceless to rub their noses in it), bar that Bacevich makes a career of trashing the military, including Gen. Petraeus, who is quite accomplished.

    Freakin' awesome clip there. I guess I could watch a little TV, if I knew this would come on (Also, if I could full-mute the commericals - sound AND sight).

    Assistant-groundskeeper (or assistant to the groundskeeper, ya PUKE!) Skinner:

    "I don't have any opinions anymore. All I know is that no one is better than everyone else, and everyone is the best at everything."

    That's the way to keep your job for the average employee. Things would be quite a bit better if men wouldn't spend their whole lives in hock. Imagine if you had a year or two savings and/or coupla rental houses, what they call "fuck you money". That's still fairly easy to get to for a single guy.

    Imagine owning a business with no boss. Hard work, yes, but no boss other than snooping government agencies. That's why the elites HATE, HATE, HATE (TM - Whiskey) small business!

    Freakin’ awesome clip there.

    The reason is, Anonym, that almost all your employees in this situation are a) in the financial mode described here but ALSO b) are not absolutely sure they will be fired. They figure there may be a way out, whether it involves apologies or grovelling or what-have-you. Anyone who had gotten the word that this employment stint is OVER would go out in style, right? I know damn well I would! Raising hell can be a blast sometimes.

    * Probably orthogonal to my point, but speaking of Skinners, it's harder to get fired if you're a mule skinner, an entirely PIC job. How about the "Mule Skinner Blues".

    I introduce a note of nostalgia here realizing that Palo Alto was once a mule-skinning community, and many of your mothers and fathers were undoubtedly mule skinners.

    Google is anti-White and it must be destroyed. Coward scum like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are implicity collaborating with Google in their plans to replace White Core Americans in the United States. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell push mass legal immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders.

    Only the Alt-Right has the bravery and courage to stand up against anti-White Google. Google and YouTube are run by a few dozen anti-white rats. The Republican Party, if it wanted to, could targetize and destroy the few dozen anti-White rats running Google.

    Code2040 is a declaration of war against White Core Americans. Now is the time for all White Core Americans to declare war on Google.

    Code2040 will soon get a response from White Core Americans.

    Exactly. Small business is freedom. I wonder why Republicans don't punish their enemies as Democrats do. When GM went into bankruptcy, Obama used it as an excuse to close down GM car dealerships in small towns across the country. Car dealers are conservative because they have to meet a payroll and control costs. Yet with control of all three branches the Repubs do nothing to hobble academia, state bureaucracy, legacy media.

    Maybe the tax plan will end Federal deduction of State income taxes - that would hit me in the bank account but stop states like NY FLA and CA from spending the money of more sensible Americans in the heartland.

    It’s not easy to say how it should all be counted, but so much wealth is concentrated on the coasts with their financial and hi tech industries and so much Fed gov spending is concentrated in rural states where there are big army bases, etc. that it appears as if (even with the deduction for state income taxes (FLA has no state income tax BTW) that NY and CA send more to DC than they get back.

    @Citizen of a Silly Country
    Brooks writes:

    What we have is a legitimate tension. Damore is describing a truth on one level; his sensible critics are describing a different truth, one that exists on another level. He is championing scientific research; they are championing gender equality. It takes a little subtlety to harmonize these strands, but it’s doable.
     
    No, it's not. If men and women are different in abilities, interests or a combination of the two, you will have unequal outcomes for various tasks. Damore's truth and gender equality cannot coexist.

    Perhaps Brooks believes that those who champion gender equality define equality as equal access and acceptance. If so, he is wrong. They define equality as numeric equality.

    Brooks is an old-school liberal, the type who deep down know that there are genetic differences between men and women and among the various races/ethnicities but who also believe that women and NAMs weren't and aren't getting a fair shake from white men (non-Jewish, of course). As a result, they backed policies to promote women and minorities and to bring white men down a notch but always with a quiet understanding that we shouldn't let these policies go too far or to take the rhetoric too seriously.

    What his type didn't anticipate was that the next generation would, in fact, believe the rhetoric, to hold it as the truth since every pillar of society - teachers, government leaders, business leaders, the media, academia, the military - told them that this was the truth. What's more, society severely punishes those challenge the rhetoric so it must be true.

    And once you accept the rhetoric as the Truth, you very quickly start to wonder why the old guard liberals - Brooks, academia, etc. - are letting all this racism and discrimination continue. The policies that they enacted to rectify the situation have failed, yet the old guard does nothing. (The old guard, of course, understands why the policies have failed.)

    Naturally, you get angry, as seen by all the screaming on college campuses and the screeching of countless diversity seminars. You also start to demand more strenous policies to stop the senseless racism of white males. If they won't give up their racism voluntarily, we'll force them to stop - or just push them out of positions of power.

    Brooks and other older liberals are being passed by and pushed aside. And they're not too happy about it. (They might also be a tad worried about what this Red Guard might do to society as a whole.) They're trying to rein back in this new generation. This column is Brooks pulling them aside and saying, "Hey, look, we might not have told you the complete truth about white racism and genetic differences."

    But it's too late. Brooks will just be seen as a coward and closet bigot. Look at the most popular comments for the column. They're all against Brooks. The Red Guard doesn't tolerate people who challenge the Truth.

    As the old guard falls by the wayside - either through age or being pushed out - they will be replaced by the true believers. And the true believers will push much harder for on-the-ground results. No more waiting decades for policies to get blacks on par with whites. We want results now, and we will ratchet up the pressure and punishment of any and all until that happens.

    What we have is a tension. Damore is describing reality; his critics are describing a vision, one that exists in their imagination. He is championing scientific understanding; they are championing Utopian fantasy. It takes a little weed to harmonize these strands; a big dooby.

    Fixed.

    Google and Amazon and Netflix and Facebook are four corporations responsible for much of the stock market tech bubble. Cheap money from the Federal Reserve Bank inflated the tech bubble. The tech bubble is now popping.

    Google is run by a few dozen people. Historians will look back, and some perceptive people, at this very moment, can look ahead to see that Google's attacks on White Core Americans has occurred at the precise moment when the tech bubble is collapsing. This is great news.

    White Core Americans must make the connection between central banking and anti-White corporate activities. That is the key to understanding the hidden layers to this historical moment. White Core Americans are under attack by Google and other technology corporations and the tech bubble is collapsing.

    Goolag’s price/earnings ratio is a healthy and defensible 30.

    Facebook is similar at 31.

    Netflix stands at 100 — but its growth is strong, so this high P/E may be investor anticipation of stronger future earnings.

    Amazon has a hair-raising P/E of 275, but is also growing gangbusters.

    Obviously none of these are value stocks, but their valuations are reasonable.

    I worked with a full USMC colonel who told me that a buddy of his was a camp commandant. Some moron drill instructor took his boys for a long walk in the desert and one of them died. That was the end of the commandant’s career, just like the guy whose ship got T-boned by a freighter recently. It may be unfair sometimes, but it keeps peoples’ attention.

    Freakin’ awesome clip there.

    I was going to post that. Great clip.

    The key is to avoid the apology. Double down. The thing is, even a principal Skinner ends up getting fired, so why go out like a whipped dog?

    The thing is, even a principal Skinner* ends up getting fired, so why go out like a whipped dog?

    The reason is, Anonym, that almost all your employees in this situation are a) in the financial mode described here but ALSO b) are not absolutely sure they will be fired. They figure there may be a way out, whether it involves apologies or grovelling or what-have-you. Anyone who had gotten the word that this employment stint is OVER would go out in style, right? I know damn well I would! Raising hell can be a blast sometimes.

    * Probably orthogonal to my point, but speaking of Skinners, it’s harder to get fired if you’re a mule skinner, an entirely PIC job. How about the “Mule Skinner Blues”.

    I introduce a note of nostalgia here realizing that Palo Alto was once a mule-skinning community, and many of your mothers and fathers were undoubtedly mule skinners.

    You truly believe we’re on the verge of a nuclear war with North Korea (and China too!), yet you have the effrontery to characterize other people as “morons?” Is there a picture of you in the dictionary, next to the entry for irony? Because there should be.

  119. Professor Jeffrey Miller nails it on the central contradiction of the diversity doctrine:

    The human sexes and races have exactly the same minds, with precisely identical distributions of traits, aptitudes, interests, and motivations; therefore, any inequalities of outcome in hiring and promotion must be due to systemic sexism and racism;
    The human sexes and races have such radically different minds, backgrounds, perspectives, and insights, that companies must increase their demographic diversity in order to be competitive; any lack of demographic diversity must be due to short-sighted management that favors groupthink.

    Derbyshire was cut from the masthead of a publication after he'd had serial incidents of sticking his thumb in the eye of other employees there. He wasn't on salary there. He received a per diem. You're forgetting his function there, which was to write somewhat comic articles of a sort Florence King, Meghan Cox Gurdon, and Cathy Seipp used to write. Only he wasn't funny anymore.

    There were a mess of complaints about Murray's berth at AEI, but he was retained.

    Only Jason Richwine is a good fit for your complaint. (He retained his contributor's slot at NR, btw).

    “Derbyshire was cut from the masthead of a publication after he’d had serial incidents of sticking his thumb in the eye of other employees there.”

    A healthy bunch of independent minded people will always be feuding. That kind of thing at NR went back to the beginning. After all, a bunch of them were ex-Communists.

    The best officers never make it past colonel or Lt. Colonel because they are troop pushers and are not ass kissers and politicians like Colin Powell, Patreus, Abazaid or a host of others. This how we get senseless wars like Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Whether the wars are 'senseless' or not, the job of the generals is to organize troops to fight them. The decision to go to war is that of the civilian officialdom.

    It might occur to you that Andrew Bacevich, who was cashiered from the military as a Lt Col after perpetrating an industrial accident, slams Gen. Petreus out of professional jealousy, and nothing more elevated than that.

    “Whether the wars are ‘senseless’ or not, the job of the generals is to organize troops to fight them. The decision to go to war is that of the civilian officialdom.”

    Hopefully civilian officialdom listens to professional military advice, if they want to avoid a quagmire. When they don’t, we all suffer.

    I know we have plenty to be angry about but just keep in mind that there are Jews on our side who I do not believe are controlled opposition. Ron Unz provides this forum, for instance. Stephen Miller. David Cole. Finkelstein. Those who voted for Trump. There are others. It's good to be critical enough to cause introspection but we don't want to unite and get smashed, we want to divide and conquer. Hold out the olive branch and the arrows like the bald eagle does. Avoid epithets for this reason.

    This is true, especially right now in this moment in US politics. Different Jews are taking different sides and calling each other out on bad behaviour in a way we didn’t see as recently as the Bush Jr years.

    I once heard it said that in the military, never trust anyone above lieutenant colonel. The pure officer-warriors who seek primarily to defend our country don't rise higher.

    It was and is “never trust anyone about sergeant”. And there are caveats to that.

    That being said I’ve known SPCs I wouldn’t turn my back on and COLs I’d give my last magazine to. Experiences vary.

    Imagine owning a business with no boss. Hard work, yes, but no boss other than snooping government agencies. That’s why the elites HATE, HATE, HATE (TM – Whiskey) small business!
     
    Exactly. Small business is freedom. I wonder why Republicans don't punish their enemies as Democrats do. When GM went into bankruptcy, Obama used it as an excuse to close down GM car dealerships in small towns across the country. Car dealers are conservative because they have to meet a payroll and control costs. Yet with control of all three branches the Repubs do nothing to hobble academia, state bureaucracy, legacy media.

    Maybe the tax plan will end Federal deduction of State income taxes - that would hit me in the bank account but stop states like NY FLA and CA from spending the money of more sensible Americans in the heartland.

    You know car dealerships only exist because of state regulation, right?

    There is no Inner Party. There is only intersectional dogma, grinding against the gears of reality, emitting shrieks of rage and cognitive dissonance. Haven Monahan hovers just outside the edge of one's field of vision, problematizing the discourse.

    Leavened with huge dollops of intersectional guilt--money and power are after all forms of Privilege(TM), which puts the holders of money and power "on the wrong side of history" from their intersectional critics. Fortunately one can expiate (some) of that guilt by speaking Power to Truth spoken by those on the "wrong side of history."

    That’s because the policy outcomes come first and the arguments get made up later. There is an Inner Party on the important stuff: war, cheap labor, internal population movement, etc. The ideology is disposable trash. There’s no reason for it to make sense.

    Bacevich took the fall for the Doha explosion but who knows whether he was really responsible.

    These things always seem incredibly stupid in retrospect. They kept a whole bunch of trucks fully loaded with munitions so that they would be ready to go into combat on a moment's notice. Fair enough. But they kept them all together parked right next to each other so when one caught fire due to a heater malfunction, the whole fleet went up. To me it seems pretty basic that you keep explosives spread out over a large area instead of in one massive pile but what do I know?

    Bacevich took the fall for the Doha explosion but who knows whether he was really responsible.

    The contention was that Bacevich had instructed his subordinates to disable an alarm system because the false alarms were annoying. The contention was not that he was the superior to someone who’d done something foolish, but that he’d told people to do something foolish. That may be true or untrue, of course.

    I wouldn’t bother about it (people make mistakes and it’s graceless to rub their noses in it), bar that Bacevich makes a career of trashing the military, including Gen. Petraeus, who is quite accomplished.

    Petraeus is probably a great guy, but he's basically famous for winning over some Sunni Arabs by bribing them. When the bribes stopped under the Iraqi government, ISIS was the result. Petraeus wasn't some great general in the mold of MacArthur or Patton - he was just a guy with unlimited bribe money courtesy of the American taxpayer.

    No, it's not. If men and women are different in abilities, interests or a combination of the two, you will have unequal outcomes for various tasks. Damore's truth and gender equality cannot coexist.

    Perhaps Brooks believes that those who champion gender equality define equality as equal access and acceptance. If so, he is wrong. They define equality as numeric equality.

    Brooks is an old-school liberal, the type who deep down know that there are genetic differences between men and women and among the various races/ethnicities but who also believe that women and NAMs weren't and aren't getting a fair shake from white men (non-Jewish, of course). As a result, they backed policies to promote women and minorities and to bring white men down a notch but always with a quiet understanding that we shouldn't let these policies go too far or to take the rhetoric too seriously.

    What his type didn't anticipate was that the next generation would, in fact, believe the rhetoric, to hold it as the truth since every pillar of society - teachers, government leaders, business leaders, the media, academia, the military - told them that this was the truth. What's more, society severely punishes those challenge the rhetoric so it must be true.

    And once you accept the rhetoric as the Truth, you very quickly start to wonder why the old guard liberals - Brooks, academia, etc. - are letting all this racism and discrimination continue. The policies that they enacted to rectify the situation have failed, yet the old guard does nothing. (The old guard, of course, understands why the policies have failed.)

    Naturally, you get angry, as seen by all the screaming on college campuses and the screeching of countless diversity seminars. You also start to demand more strenous policies to stop the senseless racism of white males. If they won't give up their racism voluntarily, we'll force them to stop - or just push them out of positions of power.

    Brooks and other older liberals are being passed by and pushed aside. And they're not too happy about it. (They might also be a tad worried about what this Red Guard might do to society as a whole.) They're trying to rein back in this new generation. This column is Brooks pulling them aside and saying, "Hey, look, we might not have told you the complete truth about white racism and genetic differences."

    But it's too late. Brooks will just be seen as a coward and closet bigot. Look at the most popular comments for the column. They're all against Brooks. The Red Guard doesn't tolerate people who challenge the Truth.

    As the old guard falls by the wayside - either through age or being pushed out - they will be replaced by the true believers. And the true believers will push much harder for on-the-ground results. No more waiting decades for policies to get blacks on par with whites. We want results now, and we will ratchet up the pressure and punishment of any and all until that happens.

    You assume a lot about Brooks’ secret inner thoughts and motivations, all of them exculpatory.

    What if he is an Entryist for the Red Guard?

    Man does x. X inevitably leads to y. Man tsks and disappears. What would Occam’s analysis be?

    Since we actually * don’t know * Brooks’ secret inner thoughts and motivations.
