Lowe on how the overclass has weaponized wokeism to the detriment of just about everybody else:

Crushing economic progressives under foot is the secret purpose of Wokism. So secret even its strongest adherents don’t realize it, which is good because it means their adherence is sincere.

Wokism is a strategy for power, which has been selected for, because it is the best. It is inculcated in every future elite from an early age, because it is the best.

Gays, trans, blacks, and other misfits make for perfect footsoldiers for elites, because they can never stop being misfits. They are forced to be loyal. They will never stop shouting down progressive bourgeois and worker types who want universal healthcare, good jobs, whatever.

Thinkers of the past conjectured that democracy would fail because voters would vote themselves the money of the rich. Actually, poor demographics and the ideological preeminence of Bioleninism mean voters can’t even vote themselves a $1200 payment! Contrast that with the rich, who have voted themselves infinite money through the central bank.

Wokism as practiced by our managerialist over-class, is not only the Hegelian synthesis of Marxism with capitalism… it is the brute Neitzchean triumph of the white/Jewish/Asian overman over the mass of the people.

Some do realize it. But there is little they can do with that realization. They are arguably even more susceptible to Wokeist attacks than those on the right are. There are only so many Dave Rubins and Michael Rectenwalds who are able to land on their feet after being tossed out by the Wokeists.

Chrisnonymous on the sentiment among a growing number of people that Covid is going to do it’s thing no matter what we do, so we might as well do our thing. Know your risk profile and act accordingly:

“Controlling” the virus would not prevent us from having to deal with it in the future. Only stopping it from ever being able to enter our population in the future would prevent us from having to deal with it, and the only way to do that is by wiping out the virus completely, which was not something in our power at any time since the pandemic started.

You can point to countries like New Zealand or Taiwan, but they are only gambling that no one will introduce it again. If they open their borders again, they will either have to (a) deal with it in the future or (b) suffer continuous recurrent lockdowns forever (which is its own way of learning to deal with it).

People don’t seem to understand that there are qualitative differences between diseases like HIV, which it is entirely possible to stop transmission of and force to die out, and widespread, highly infectious respiratory diseases arising from animal populations, which it is not realistic to stop or eradicate.

If you think eradication was a viable strategy, you have to ask yourself why we haven’t eradicated influenza or the common cold.

The only chance the world had was at the very beginning of the outbreak, but since the virus wasn’t even recognized by the Chinese as a novel pathogen until it had already spread widely, that was probably not a realistic possibility either.

Haruto Rat on how violent crime in America really is wildly disproportionately black-on-black in nature:

As a quick thought experiment, what would the numbers look like if all races were equally violent and chose their victims at random:

It’s black-on-black murder that in reality occurs 21x as often. (Other-on-other is within margin of error, I also dropped ‘unknown’ from the table.)

The boomercon meme about BLM needing to focus on the south side of Chicago first is hard to argue with if black lives really are the movement’s driving concern.

    The new alignment is:
    — GOP — Populist Labor
    — DNC — Woke Corporate

    This points the way out of the trap. Economic progressives can have success if they shift to the Populist GOP.

    This is why the SJW Globalists are so desperate. Hillary as President would have permanently empowered Corporate Elites. Trump’s willingness to fight China’s trade exploitation placed the multinationals on the ropes. He is now landing another pro-Labor body blow with H1B visa reform. (1)

    Advocates for the H-1B visa-worker program are protesting the wage increases required by President Donald Trump’s deputies, saying the raises will sharply reduce hiring of the foreign workers.

    The protests show that “the entire H-1B project has been nothing but cheap [labor for] tech,” said Kevin Lynn, founder of U.S. Tech Workers.

    “The fact that they would say increasing the wages of the H-1B workers will result in an exodus of H-1Bs from the United States and an increase in [job] offshoring, demonstrates that for the entire time since 1990, the purpose of the H-1B program was to bring in cheap labor — and I emphasize cheap labor — to displace Americans college-grads,” said Lynn, who is encouraging Trump’s deputies to tout their reforms of the H-1B program in the 2020 campaign.

    Progressives that want to improve outcomes for U.S. workers can do so by allying with the Populist GOP. However, that means they will have to shed some of their naivety over ideas such as ‘open borders’ and failed ‘green energy’ programs. Improving the position of U.S. Citizens depends on keeping unfair exploitation out and domestic energy prices low.

    PEACE 😇

  5. That’s a lovely little bit of useful work by Haruto Rat – which shows that at the current overall murder rate in the US, whites are under-represented among victims of black murder.

    This goes to what I’ve babbled about for ages: blacks are not an inordinate risk for run-of-the-mill whites.

    The 566 white victims of white-on-black killings will not all be Methodist spinsters accosted on their way home from church, or cubicle-schlubs accosted outside their local bar. A majority of the victims will be white trash who crossed black trash and came off second-best – maybe not a ‘veto-proof’ majority, but a majority nonetheless.

    Like most murder, black-on-black murder is also largely an internecine problem in a criminal underclass. The bulk of the victims are not ‘innocent bystanders’, but other ‘playas‘ in the doings of that criminal underclass.

    Of course there are brutal killings of genuinely innocent victims (e.g., convenience store clerks, and others killed for piffling amounts of money), but they are shocking precisely because they are so exceptional. (In the same way, Scott Petersen is not representative of a white murderer).

    Black ‘civilians’ are at higher risk of being inadvertently involved, solely because of proximity to a criminal underclass within their community.

    This is why there is a low clearance rate for murders in high-crime areas: public resources are rationally not-wasted on clearing ‘bad guy on bad guy‘ murders. If a drug dealer kills another drug dealer, that’s a ‘wash’ – and rightly so. (Leave aside that drug prohibition is a fucking stupid idea, which creates a violent criminal subculture as a deliberate side-effect).

    The same approach holds regarding pretty much all criminal classes – white cracker meth dealers vs white biker meth dealers, for example. Law enforcement should – and largely does – take the view that if they’re killing each other, best not to get in the way of a good thing.

    Anyway… point is that it’s really very interesting that if US blacks reduced their killing of other blacks so that it was in-line with black-on-white murder, the US murder rate would be reduced by 60%.

    As it is, all races preferentially target their own – whites included (90% of murders perpetrated by whites, are white-on-white, while ‘only’ 81% of black murders are black-on-black).

    It still shows – really really clearly – that people who clutch their pearls and worry about about their risk of being killed by a rampaging negro, are straight-up idiots. By all means take sensible precautions, but the risk of being murdered at random by a black person is lower than the risk of a US college student dying from COVID19.

    I think what this take is missing is the organic nature of the evolution of wokeism. Wokeism didn’t pop out of thin air. It is part of a long tradition in western societies of protecting the downtrodden and the oppressed. Before it came Communism, and before that Christianity.

    The organizing principle behind these ideologies is a desire to protect the weak and oppressed from the powerful and the strong. In the case of Christianity, it was to protect the poor and the meek from the oppression and tyranny of the ruling class. In the case of Communism, it was to protect the working class from the exploitative rich. Wokeism is simply the newest, most fashionable manifestation of that strain of ideology. Except this time the weak are the blacks, and the perceived oppressors are the whites.

    A key driving force behind these ideologies is the desire of the do-gooding segment of the upper and middle class to project (or ‘signal’, in modern parlance) a morally righteous image of themselves towards the world (and more specifically, their peers). This desire never leaves, it is part of human nature. So these ideologies develop as an outlet for status signaling and righteousness. This can often times advance into a dangerous excess of self-righteousness, where a congruent impulse to suppress any dissent develops, on the pretext of morality.

    “Of course there are brutal killings of genuinely innocent victims (e.g., convenience store clerks, and others killed for piffling amounts of money), but they are shocking precisely because they are so exceptional.”

    They appear to be happening with greater frequency than you let on. And shocking? When do you even hear about them? If a white guy were to throw a black kid off a balcony, it would be headline news and half the cities in America would be burned to the ground, but when a black guy throws a white kid off a balcony, it’s barely even mentioned. Yeah, yeah, the guy had mental problems.

    As Larry Elder said, “Whose life is in greater danger: a black man walking through a white neighborhood, or a white man walking through a black neighborhood?”

    That’s the difference. Blacks can freely walk around white areas, but whites cannot freely walk around black areas.

  10. @Kratoklastes

    whites are under-represented among victims of black murder.

    Note that the median of the nine boxes of Haruto Rat‘s race-vs.-race killings spreadsheet is 39%, and that because the calculation is zero-sum (each addition black-offender killing lowers the rest of the chart), the 90% black-on-white killing still represents a very elevated risk for whites from blacks, more than double the median 39% value. Given that whites more than any other big US race take extraordinary measures to avoid blacks (living rural/exurbs, commuting long distances, etc.), yet still suffer at the hands of blacks at more than double the standard murder rate, suggests that blacks really do make special effort to hunt and kill whites.

    That the major media (of which blacks are the biggest consumers per capita) all encourage black anger against whites may not be unrelated.

    An incredibly rich post.

    I strongly disagree that wokeism is either intentional or a great plan for elite power.

    1 – Social trust is central to high GDP countries. Wokeism ruins that. Civic Nationalism, often derided in places like this blog, is actually sensible if social trust and GDP maximization is your goal. Wokeism is taking a dump in the civnat pool.

    2 – The woke activists have repeatedly set up a guillotine outside of Jeff Bezos’ house in DC. 4D chess, amirite?

    Elon Musk, who is basically the smart set’s only viable hope for a green future and a space future, has been at the edge of cancellation this year and he had to dare California to arrest him simply for keeping Tesla operating.

    The thinking that all this chaos is part of an elite plan is not unlike the QAnon belief that Trump would suddenly arrest 10,000 evil deep staters any day now.

    Sometimes chaos is just chaos.

    3 – A depressed population, ground down by leftist ideology, doesn’t make good soil for prosperity. The 20th century was a continuous proof of that.

    I think the real situation is that elites narrowly protected things in a certain economic domain, and the leftist onslaught was less contested in the social sphere because it was indirect. But low birthrates, low social trust, demonization of white men and loss of the social capital once provided by churches will drag down the world of the elites in the end.

    The risk of being murdered at random by a black person while taking the precautions outlined in John Derbyshire’s non-black version of “The Talk” are low. If you are suggesting that these are “sensible precautions”, I can only agree.

    I think a word on Bill Gates is order because if wokeism is a secret elite plan for power then surely Bill Gates is in on it.

    But let’s not build Gates up to be some kind of god. He started a company that makes operating systems and they became the monopoly standard. If you own the only port in the world, it is impossible not to be rich. Given that most computers in the world run Windows, maybe he would even be a trillionaire if he were a better businessman. Gates stepped down as CEO 14 years ago. He hasn’t been in charge in ages.

    Look at John McAfee. Software tycoon and crazy kook.

    We think this all must be part of Bill Gates’ plan because he is so rich that he must have it all figured out. But a gigantic share of Gates’ success is simple luck and the fact that the world needs one computer operating system and Windows became it.

    My sense is that Gates is an aspergery genius who doesn’t understand the social connections most people rely on. He also has a messiah complex because he got so incredibly lucky in life. But he pushed world lockdown that crushed social structures (something he doesn’t understand as an aspergery guy) and did NOT stop the virus.

    It fact I think Bill Gates’ aspergery nature makes him insensitive to the damage of the left because it is in the social sphere where he is a dunce.

    So no, I don’t think all of what we are seeing is an elite plan. In chaos people look hard for patterns that may not be real.

    Thanks for the good news. Like squelching the academic mafia by shoving his “we are systemically racist” words down the throat of Princeton President Eisgruber, these are the sorts of actions that most people will support. I haven’t heard Trump talk at all about the President of Princeton. I’d put that forward at a debate and let people know that SOMEone is holding people accountable. There’s an argument to be made for H-1B, and it’s made all the time: these are critical workers who add to our economy, taking jobs that would otherwise go undone. Making people pay H-1B workers a lot more forces them to put up or shut up. I don’t really mind getting the top world talent to work here; but undercutting American wages for code slingers, no.

  15. Arclight says:

    The woke moment is a rejection of the reality that a) we removed nearly all barriers that previously could be attributed to racial animus several generations ago, and b) substantially equal opportunity cannot produce equal outcomes because of differences in ability, effort, and culture. Both the left and the right have to confront the fact that there are human qualities that are beyond the reach of government intervention or a bootstrap mentality, and that we reached the limit of what those approaches can achieve long ago. The left are in a bigger straitjacket on this than the right, since the group in the US with the lowest level of human capital is also a core political constituency, and they are not going to tell their most loyal voters that they ought to get used to their spot on the cultural and economic ladder being more or less permanent.

    However, I do think the woke moment will fade over time as a shrinking white population (the most black-friendly group overall) is replaced by Asians and Latinos that don’t feel particularly obligated to maintain blacks’ privileged position in the culture and politics. There will be opportunities to exploit for the right, provided they are not so stupid as to basically be the puppets of the Chamber of Commerce like they have been for the last 20 years.

    Blacks are an inordinate risk for any Whites who encounter them, by choice or by chance.  Your run-of-the-mill White has low risk BECAUSE of avoiding blacks.

    The 566 white victims of white-on-black killings will not all be Methodist spinsters accosted on their way home from church, or cubicle-schlubs accosted outside their local bar. A majority of the victims will be white trash who crossed black trash and came off second-best

    Jessica Chambers is an example of a fatality from making poor choices, but it’s impossible to accuse Antonio Angel Santiago (murdered in his stroller, age 13 months) or even Autumn Pasquale of making the bed they are dirt-napping in.  Their parents either made poor choices or had no choice at all.

    Tamping down black violence, especially inter-racial violence, is why collective punishment of “tha community” is imperative.

    I tend to agree. The upper middle class has gone along with it because they think they won’t be affected. They see themselves as distinct from the racist BadWhites, shown through their “hate has no home here” lawn signs.

    But really it’s just a matter of being eaten later than others (ie. The white formerly-working class). They will be crushed too. Even the rich will eventually be crushed. Only the ultra wealthy 0.01% would last.

    People say that Brazil is the future of North America, but in reality it’s much worse. Brazil has religious homogeneity (evangelical and catholic). Brazil has language homogeneity. Brazil has civic nationalism that its population believes in. Brazil has a long history of a racial caste system allowing the whites to live relatively freely from the coloured underclass. Brazil has no anti-white affirmative action.

    The USA and Canada have none of these. The future is likely even worse than we can imagine. Wokeism has destroyed us.

    I go back and forth between the “malice” and “incompetence” explanation for the current situation.

    When you look at most corporations, they are run by insane, incompetent, and emotional white women idiots. The only reason they still function is on the legacy systems some smarter white guys put into place 50 years ago. If you apply this to our managerial ruling class too, the incompetence explanation makes sense.

    The new alignment is:
    — GOP — Populist Labor
    — DNC — Woke Corporate

    Not if the GOP establishment has anything to say about it.

    The GOPe has squelched every nationalist or populist instinct within their party, which includes purging people like Steve King and actively running corporate neocons over populists. Martha McSally was the GOPe-sponsored candidate that lost her senate race only to be gifted with the other Arizona senate as compensation for losing. Now she very well may lose that seat too as the GOP base is unenthusiastic about republican politicians who are not completely beholden to corporate interests and push neocon Israel-first foreign policy, but are usually woke-lite in pushing antiwhite narratives and completely rolling over as soon as the antiwhite media calls them racists or white supremacists.

    If Trump loses in November, the GOP will learn all the wrong lessons and decide he lost because he was an evil racist nazi and not because he came up short on campaign promises while pandering to everybody except his White base. Nikki Haley will be the face of the new party, the same woman who tore down the Rebel flag in South Carolina based on her belief in blood libel against whites, the same woman who put Israel first while ambassador to the UN, the same woman who would be the first to purge any Republican that actually stands up for the interests of White Americans. The conspiracy theory pushed by Chris Wallace and the media that white supremacists are behind the riots received no pushback from Republicans. In fact, they went into damage control to satisfy the same leftists that actively want them and their supporters dead. The realignment you’ve postulated will be nothing more than a dream if McConnell and Co get their way.

Since whites don’t expect normal conversation at the gas station to lead to death (“could you close your door so that I can exit?”), avoiding them isn’t as easy as you think.

    You are wrong. I am pretty sure that the chances of a young person being killed by a black dude (in the US) are much, much higher than Covid. In fact, Covid is not a significant risk except for 80-year olds or fat, unhealthy people.

    Blacks can kill anyone, any age, and not only in black neighbourhoods.

    Hey, I tend to avoid black males as much as I can, and I NEVER go to black neighbourhoods, yet I was once (many years ago) punched by a random drug-addict or insane black man downtown (kind of like Rick Moranis, but not that bad in my case). If he had a gun, he might have shot me.

    If “sensible precautions” include crossing the street every time you see a black person, then maybe I can agree…

    Now, this in the US, in Europe (and maybe in Canada) it’s still different, as not so many blacks have guns (and are for now less involved with crime, well, maybe not in the UK).

    @Marty

    There are countless cases where white people have been killed for reasons that seem completely absurd (to white people), like for some stupid argument about traffic or cutting in the line. What with white people it might lead, at most, to a heated argument, with black males of the ghetto persuasion, it can easily lead to death.

    Also a black man might feel “dissed” because of reasons that are not understandable to non-blacks. Yeah, maybe with some white trash or latino gangbangers it’s the same thing, but… I don’t know… I think in those cases your risk assessment is clearer, with blacks it’s more a lottery… You never really know… I remember a case where someone discussed with a black woman, zero risk, right? But she felt insulted and called her “baby daddy” who came back with a gun and killed the guy.

    Yes, maybe risks are not as high as we tend to think they are, but… I wouldn’t take them.

    Dude, read this from earlier in the current year.
    Then tell me all about risk assessment around American blacks and so forth.
    The following incident was caught on security cam, and the dead man never knew what hit him.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/flint-family-dollar-security-guard-killed-after-turning-away-customer-without-mask/ar-BB13ALXu

    Officials said Sharmel Teague and her daughter went to the Family Dollar on East 5th Avenue about 1:40 p.m. on Friday. Security footage showed Munerlyn and Teague got into a verbal altercation after he told the woman that her daughter needed a face mask to enter the store. Teague began to yell and spit at Munerlyn, who asked her to leave the store and instructed a cashier not to serve her.

    Seems simple, yes? Security guard has his orders at the Dollar Store: no mask, no entry. Strong, independent black woman gets offended, starts yelling and spitting on the security guard. Gets told to leave. Goes away. No possible risk or threat, right? I mean, that’s what you’d say in Oz.

    The security footage shows the two driving off in a red GMC Envoy.

    The same vehicle returned about 20 minutes later at 2:15 p.m. Two suspects, Larry Teague, Sharmel Teague’s husband, and Ramonyea Bishop, her son, entered the store. Larry Teague confronted the security guard about disrespecting his wife and Bishop fatally shot him in the back of the head, Leyton said. The two men then left the store.

    Wow, who saw that coming? Since this is black men murdering a black man it barely made the news, and was in no way cause for any riots and looting peaceful protests. It could just as easily have been a hispanic or white security guard. Just as easily.

    Wokies have nothing to say about stuff like this. Seems like they just don’t care. Guess it doesn’t matter to them.

    Normal people know to stay alert and aware of everything – everything – around them when black people are in the area.

    But maybe you can share with the rest of us your own experiences with US Dollar Store clientele in majority black areas like Flint, Michigan ?

    There are a lot of Hispanic gang members shooting Hispanic gang members in my city and it’s the whites who are hysterical about it. When I point out that they are only killing each other I always get the innocent bystander rebuttal. Yet an innocent person getting shot by accident(in a crime situation) happens a lot less than most people think. When it does it’s often someone loosely affilated with the gang banger. For example someone shot through the window of an opposing gang members house and the bullet hit a family member not in a gang. What never happens, at least in the large sample of shootings I have read about here, is a Hispanic gang member shooting a random white person for no reason.

    While black on black murder is a lot more common than black on white I still think whites have more reason to be cautious of black criminality in general. I base that on the fact that I have had random blacks show hostility towards me for no reason, most recently during the time of the George Floyd riots. If I would have made the wrong move or reacted to their aggression I could have become their victim.

    The GOP change to Populism is a process, not an instantaneous flip. There have been huge successes pushing out:

    — NeoCons — Bill Kristol and his #NeverTrump hang have left the GOP burning their bridges behind them. Bolton’s book was an audition piece to be part of Biden’s State Department.
    — MegaCorporations — Confronting China’s Globalist trade exploitation openly threatened them with the need to hire U.S. Citizens and pay them fairly.

    That being said, there have been compromises. The Senate has to confirm appointments. To keep that moving, GOPe stalwarts like Romney managed to extract some picks that were not aligned with Trump’s vision.

    Trump’s re-election is inevitable, however he will reach term limits in 2024. There is huge succession risk. Nikki Haley is an obvious non-starter. The next Populist leader should have an easier time based on job creation success from ending exploitation masquerading as ‘free trade’. However, Trump gelds the Fake Stream Media, using tweets to control the narrative. There is no obvious candidate with that skill set as heir apparent.

    Whoever takes up the role of Populist leader does have a huge ‘Trump Card’ available from the criminal Obamagate investigation. The GOPe has historical attachments to corrupt officials in the FBI. The threat of being jailed for life will encourage a large chunk of Deep State operatives to take ‘early retirement’, slithering out of the line of fire.

    PEACE 😇

    I am concerned about Nikki Haley. A lot of the lower IQ Trump supporters like her it seems. I know some. They have no concept of establishment vs populism. They are attracted to personalities and Haley captures their imagination. I would hope there are enough populist-nationalists to block her in the primaries. Another one I am worried about is Marco Rubio. Pence is probably as bad of a neocon as any of them but I admire how loyal he has been to Trump.

    This is the mistake of living in a world of contextless statistics.

    Murder happens in places, by people, for reasons.

    People murder people who are around them. People in the US also self-segregate. If you could restrict the data for Whites murdered to a subset of “Whites who live in the midst of areas that are heavily lower class black” I would wager the black-on-white rate would be quite a bit higher.

    I don’t mean “Well, I live in Chicago and it’s 32% black.” No, you live in Rosemont, which is 1.8% black, not the South Side, which is 93% Black. Neighborhood level.

    No, you live in Rosemont

    Which is also a closed off gated-community as of the 90’s. The entire residential part of the city is fenced off.

    Peace.

    The thinking that all this chaos is part of an elite plan is not unlike the QAnon belief that Trump would suddenly arrest 10,000 evil deep staters any day now.

    Yes, to some extent it’s just more conspiracy theory thinking.

    The most absurd conspiracy theory of all is that COVID-19 is a globalist plot.

    Gates has not said that, but he is obsessed with being Vaccine Man, which is ok in a sense but doesn’t inspire trust when it comes from the man who dumped insecure Windows products on the populace.

    Also, nanotechnology does not exist and probably never will. Or if it does it will be indistinguishable from usual life processes, maybe with different molecules, but for that a lot more universities and quantum computing are needed.

  36. The proportions in Haruto Rat’s tables are plausible, but in the interest of thoroughness, I just want to point out that the FBI reported 15,020 murders in 2019, so 6,294 is less than half of 2019’s murders. Presumably the difference is cases where there is no conviction or even a suspect.

    This has several implications:

    1) Terrible clearance rates. A year later, most of the most serious crimes are unsolved. If you’ve committed murder lately, chances are you got away with it. “Yeah but they’ll catch you later,” some may retort. Maybe, but even then not every suspect gets convicted. So it looks like most murders go unsolved forever. Which means all lesser crimes probably have much lower conviction rates.

    2) Inter-racial stats may be worse they appear. Inter-racial crime is more likely to be between strangers. Crimes between strangers are less like to be solved. Therefore the unsolved portion of murders (i.e., most of them) are very probably more inter-racial than the solved portion. Maybe much more.*

    3) The Tuskeegee Institute publicizes—and the media love to cite—a historical figure of 3,445 lynched blacks, which is supposed to be a monument of the sinful racism against blacks. Yet it may be that blacks kill more non-blacks every year than the number of blacks who were unjustly lynched in the Tuskeegee Institute’s entire 86 year history of lynching. This is not even to mention that the lynchings happened a century or so ago, while the the black-on-everyone-else murders are happening right now.

    ——

    * To probe the unsolved portion, maybe there are some data from when formerly unsolved crimes become solved in an objective, uniform way. For example, recent DNA testing of old, cold case evidence kits has identified a bunch of murderers who would otherwise have passed into history unknown. I haven’t seen any stats for who they are, but the data are out there somewhere.
