*The title is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the ever-growing list of articles arguing The conservative case for something entirely un-Conservative with The conservative case for gay marriage still the ne plus ultra of the genre.

The genesis of woke capital

While the right has focussed on cultural Marxism in explaining the rise of political correctness, America’s hyper-capitalist corporations have been at the vanguard of the social revolution. Richard Hanania, one of the most insightful commentators on America’s ideological absurdity, explains in his article Woke Institutions is Just Civil Rights Law:

“It was civil rights law that revolutionized the American workplace. Corporations started to hire full time staff in order to keep track of government mandates, which were vague and could change at any moment. There was a sense of “keeping up with the Joneses,” in which every company and institution had to be more anti-racist and anti-sexist than the next one, leading to more and more absurd diversity trainings and other programs… The creation of bureaucracy means that it eventually gains its own power base and becomes able to advocate for its own interests.”

The private sector is not simply doing whatever it must to comply with government regulations. Over time, the regulatory environment has created a deeply entrenched permanent HR bureaucracy of true believers. Plenty of the America’s largest companies opposed Ronald Reagan’s attempt to dismantle affirmative action in the 1980s. In 2020 President Trump signed an executive order that banned the federal government, as well as its contractors, from teaching employees that “an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist”. The order had, in the words of USA Today, “sent chills through the private sector”. USA Today further reported that “Behind the scenes, individual companies and industry groups are supporting efforts to mount a legal challenge to the executive order”. Diversity training started as an attempt to ward off lawsuits but the value of such endeavours has long been internalized by corporate America, regardless of the cost (currently, in America alone, eight billion dollars is spent on such training every single year). To understand the ideology of HR bureaucrats, look to Robin DiAngelo, the doyenne of diversity training, who instructs her students to “Try to be less white”. Her client list includes Amazon and Unilever. Her book White Fragility became a canonical text in reading lists prescribed to employees by large companies in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

Few people read political theory but we all want a promotion. Far from a neutral marketplace of ideas, a key to understanding the ideological shift is incentives. HR managers have the power to fire people. For every James Damore or Brendan Eich there are thousand’s of nameless people defenestrated from their livelihood for holding an opinion. For the older generation of white male upper management, now feeling precarious under the drive for a diverse workforce, the easiest way to protect their own career is to jump on board the political program as enthusiastically as possible. At Telefónica, a pale male CEO has a “reverse mentor” half his age — inevitably an overweight black female Muslim — to “school him” on diversity.

Cultural Marxism Capitalism: the revolution will be corporate sponsored

The biggest misperception of the right is that wokeness is exclusively an ideology of the far-left. By focusing on blue-haired lunatics, we’ve lost sight of something terrifying: this ideology isn’t confined to Portland rioters and student radicals — it inescapably permeates every boardroom and institution in the Western world.

In 2019 The Washington Post reported that the Business Roundtable, a group “representing the nation’s most powerful chief executives” had “abandoned the idea that companies must maximize profits for shareholders above all else”. An official statement from the Roundtable set out to redefine the purpose of a corporation, with a new raison d’être that included fostering “diversity and inclusion”.

Paul Polman, former Chief Executive of Unilever writes in the Financial Times that, as a CEO, “staff and customers believe you should embody the company’s values and speak out on big, touchstone issues, from race to fake news.” Describing government’s as “hamstrung”, it is a “morally conscious business elite” that must pick up the slack. “Our democracies are faltering amid a tide of misinformation, while the waves of populism and extremism show no sign of receding”. Thankfully then, writes Polman, more CEO’s are “being moved by the times to get off the sidelines”. He’s describing a top-down anti-democratic movement of neoliberal corporatocracy.

Unilever’s largest shareholder is BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager. BlackRock manages more than \$10 trillion in assets across index funds, pension plans and other investment products. “Capital markets have allowed companies and countries to flourish” says BlackRock CEO Larry Fink. “But access to capital is not a right. It is a privilege.” With the rise of activist asset managers, whom has access to that capital depends on the political agenda of people like Mr Fink. Michael Rectenwald, a scholar who taught at NYU, describes wokeness as “a shibboleth for cartel members to identify and distinguish themselves from their non-woke competitors, who are to be starved of capital investments. Just as non-woke individuals are cancelled from civic life, so too will non-woke companies be cancelled from the economy.”

Jonathan Greenblatt, head of the Anti-Defamation League, gave a TED talk in 2011 in which he advocated for an “impact economy” where woke corporations transform the world:

“The mission is encoded in the DNA of the business. Because it sets out not just to drive margin but to create movements… And what are these businesses? They are representative of the impact economy where supply and demand converge not on the notion of a market clearing price but on the notion of a world changing mission.” Under Greenblatt the ADL has been key to defining and coordinating that mission. PayPal, for example, has an official partnership with the ADL focused on “disrupting the financial pipelines” of the ADL’s ideological enemies.

In 2015 Bernie Sanders famously referred to open borders as “a Koch brothers proposal”. While capitalism isn’t incompatible with sane immigration policies, open borders are often seen as an intrinsic part of neoliberal globalization: the free flow of not just goods, but of people, across the planet. Samuel Huntingdon coined the term Davos Man, named after the home of the World Economic Forum, to describe the denationalized elite for whom all values are “secondary to participating in the global economy, supporting international trade and migration”. Appropriately, it was at Davos that Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon announced that the firm “will only underwrite IPOs in the US and Europe of private companies that have at least one diverse board member”.

Multinational bank HSBC currently has a prominent advertising campaign pushing the message “Opportunity doesn’t do borders”. In 2019 the bank ran what was perceived by many as an anti-Brexit ad with the slogan “We Are Not An Island” in reference to Great Britain, a literal island. The ad was part of the bank’s ‘Global Citizen’ initiative. HSBC’s chief marketing officer said the campaign was intended to “celebrate the rich diversity that makes the UK what it is today”.

Oligarch benefactors of woke revolution

Some of the most radical advocacy is coming from the very top. Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo seemed to welcome the execution of his peers, tweeting in response to Coinbase vowing to stay out of contentious political issues like Black Lives Matter: “Me-first capitalists who think you can separate society from business are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution. I’ll happily provide video commentary.” Meanwhile the CEO of Chick-fil-A debased himself by shining the shoes of a black rapper live on stage because he felt “a sense of shame” about racism.

Whole books have been written about the world-changing “philanthropy” of George Soros. While he’s rightfully the world’s most notorious politicised plutocrat, he’s far from alone — there are plenty of other deep-pocketed investors bankrolling radical social justice movements to the tune of billions of dollars. Sheryl Sandberg, CEO of Facebook, donated \$2.5 million to the ADL. Jack Dorsey donated ten million dollars to Ibram Kendi and the Center for Antiracist Research. Jeff Bezos donated \$100 million to Van Jones. His company, Amazon, donated 550 copies of Ibram X. Kendi’s book Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You to Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. His ex-wife has donated billions to a variety of groups including the Communities Transforming Policing Fund, the Black-led Movement Fund, the Emerging LGBTQ Leaders of Color Fund and BOLD, a group “focused on strengthening Black social justice infrastructure in the U.S”. Jewish billionaire Susan Sandler bestowed \$200 million to “racial justice” groups including the New Virginia Majority and the New Florida Majority. The New York Times reports:

“Her efforts will support organizations trying to build political power in states that are undergoing rapid demographic change…In traditionally Republican states such as Arizona, Georgia and Texas, the prospect of a changing electorate has enthralled political observers for years.” In a blog post on Medium, Sandler explained her ambitions: “As the composition of the electorate in those states comes to reflect the full racial diversity of the population of those states, the social contract in these states can be rewritten…This reality is one of the reasons why we are excited to support efforts that are focused on changing power relationships in this region.”

Personnel is policy

It’s commonly believed that corporations as purely profit-seeking, their actions wholly determined by the financial incentives of the free market. This was always a delusion. When a Christian baker refused to to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding nobody questioned the bakers sincerity. Materialism is not the only driver of human behaviour — even in business. Companies are formed by people, and people are political. Robert Gibbs went from being a spokesman for Barack Obama to being a spokesman for McDonald’s. Nick Clegg went from being Deputy Prime Minister of the UK to being president for global affairs at Meta (previously Facebook). Facebook’s communications director Andy Stone previously worked for Democratic Senators Barbara Boxer and John Kerry. Political operatives with ideological agenda’s occupy the top level of the corporate world.

While activist CEO’s are a part of the problem, leaders that have remained business-focused are often pushed into adopting radical positions by their own staff. When the CEO of cryptocurrency platform Coinbase said the company would not advocate for any political causes, five percent of employees left the company.

Corporations of the world, unite!

Wells Fargo, the financial services colossus, sponsored a discussion titled “From Black Panthers to Black Lives Matter, the Movement Continues”. One of the panelists was DeRay Mckesson, a high-profile Black Lives Matter activist. Nikole Hannah-Jones, cheerleader for the riots of 2020 and author of the 1619 project, conducted a lecture proudly sponsored by Shell.

For some businesses, social justice becomes a key part of their brand. Ben and Jerry’s, owned by Unilever, employs a full-time “Head of US Activism”. The company released a “Pecan Resist” ice-cream that, they claimed, delivered “a powerful message about resisting the Trump administration’s regressive and discriminatory policies” and raised funds for “organizations that are working on the front lines of the resistance”. A portion of proceeds from their “Change Is Brewing” flavor went to the campaign to defund the police. They provided free ice cream to anarchists at the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Ben & Jerry’s may be an extreme case, but the aftermath of George Floyd’s death was clarifying. It made plain the full extent of the ideological capture of big business — corporate America spoke with one monotonous voice.

The far-left publication Jacobin acknowledges that “business elites’ structural power” has been “harnessed to movement goals — when activists imposed high enough costs.” Those cost’s included billions of dollars in property damage from the riots of 2020. Ashley Rae Goldenberg compiled a list of 269 large companies that had expressed support for Black Lives Matter in the midst of the violent revolt of that year. (Reiterating the hold corporations have over the narrative, Ashley was promptly deplatformed from Medium.com, where she had published the list. It has since been republished on VDare). “Go woke go broke” is conservative cope. If you were to vote with your feet and boycott these companies you would be reduced to the lifestyle of Ted Kaczynski — you wouldn’t be able to get on a plane or open a bank account or drive a car or buy groceries. American Express, Barclays, Bank of America, Citigroup, Mastercard — every node of the capitalist system expressed fealty to BLM.

Kimberlé Crenshaw, perhaps the most well-known “scholar” of intersectionality and critical race theory, marveled at the corporate rhetoric: “You basically have a moment where every corporation worth its salt is saying something about structural racism and anti-blackness, and that stuff is even outdistancing what candidates in the Democratic Party were actually saying.” The support for “racial justice” was more than just rhetorical — companies collectively pledged billions of dollars in 2020. NIKE, to take just one example, pledged \$40 million to invest in organizations “that put social justice, education and addressing racial inequality in America at the center of their work”.

The corporate coup

Advertising revenue is the lifeblood of news media. That money is tied to toeing the correct political line. In 2019 Twitter users tagged companies that advertised on Tucker Carlson’s massively popular Fox News show with the hashtag #BoycottTuckerCarlson. In the aftermath of the George Floyd overdose, his show was again targeted. T-Mobile, Disney, Papa John’s and AstraZeneca were among some of the companies to pull their ads. T-Mobile chief executive Mike Sievert announced the decision via Twitter: “Bye-bye Tucker Carlson! #BlackLivesMatter”. This is an example of the symbiosis of Davos man and extremely-online social justice warriors, where pressure from below is answered by a corporate HQ that is happy to oblige. Other Fox News anchors have been targeted by boycott campaigns. In Britain, the Co-op announced via Twitter that they would stop advertising in The Spectator due to their coverage of gender dysphoria, before backtracking.

When North Carolina banned men from using women’s bathrooms in 2016, a group of over 180 major companies that included Apple, Airbnb, Bank of America, and Starbucks, urged North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory to repeal the law. Corporations didn’t just publicly oppose the law, they used their financial heft to economically punish North Carolina. PayPal and Deutsche Bank were among the many businesses that backed out of plans to invest in the state over the law. An analysis by the Associated Press estimated that the corporate backlash would cost the state more than \$3.76 billion in lost business.

Companies are willing to interfere in the political process in way’s we’ve not seen in previous decades. CEO of the Walt Disney Company, Bob Chapek, publicly apologized because the company “didn’t quite get the job done” when opposing the misnomered ‘don’t say gay’ bill. “I know that many are upset that we did not speak out against the bill”, he said at the 2022 annual shareholder meeting. “We were opposed to the bill from the outset, but we chose not to take a public position on it because we thought we could be more effective working behind the scenes, engaging directly with lawmakers.” Chapek told shareholders he would be meeting with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis about the issue.

In early 2021 when Georgia passed a voting law to prevent election fraud more than 100 of America’s top corporate leaders took time out of their busy schedules to attend a Zoom call to discuss ways to oppose similar electoral reform across the country. Attendees included the CEO of Walmart; the CEO of United Airlines; the CEO of American Airlines; the chairman of Levi Strauss Company; and the co-founder of LinkedIn. “These CEOs said, ‘Enough of that, we’re going to come together and reinforce our fellow CEOs.’ It was a statement of affirmation that the voice of business in the political world is worthwhile,” said Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the organizer of the online meeting. The combined power of the corporate elite supersedes the democratic will of the people.

A neologism for our age: Globohomo

“If we broke up the big banks tomorrow,” Hillary Clinton asked in 2016, “would that end racism?” It was, perhaps, the ultimate expression of the globohomo tendency. A neologism of the online right, globohomo is a portmanteau of global and homogenized. Homo, of course, has a dual meaning. International corporations have homogenized culture, displacing or commodifying what was once authentic and inherited. The ideology of Hayek and Friedman has symbiotically entwined itself with the ideology of the New Left. In a world in which the mainstream right has abandoned conservative social values and the left has abandoned class politics, all that remains is an incredibly gay version of capitalism.

The word is more expansive than simply referring to corporations that fly the rainbow flag. Homo here stands for a whole constellation of values – open borders, radical feminism, intersectionality, diversity, equity and inclusion, and the more recently adopted cause of gender dysphoria. Globohomo is a cash machine telling you “representation matters”.

Globohomo is a skyline-dominating Nasdaq billboard in Times Square displaying the words “BLACK LIVES MATTER” in all caps above an image of raised black fists. Far-left Jacobin magazine, “even the iconography of dissent and inclusion is seamlessly slid in right next to the logo of your favorite carbonated beverage, ecommerce app, hookup service, or laser-guided munitions manufacturer.” This is not dissent, it’s radical conformity. Globohomo is the governing ideology of our age , the elite consensus.

They’re not selling soap

Joe Biden, always given to off the cuff remarks, pointed out something it’s impossible to miss, and yet almost never mentioned — the massive overrepresentation of mixed race couples in advertising: “When you turn on the stations — sit on one station for two hours. And I don’t know how many commercials you’ll see — eight to five — two to three out of five have mixed-race couples in them. That’s not by accident. They’re selling soap, man.” Three out of five may well be an underestimation — much contemporary advertising is indistinguishable from blacked.com. London’s newspaper of record The Times also commented on the phenomenon, running the headline Big brands shun straight, white Britain in their adverts:

“Advertisers are so worried about being accused of racism or homophobia they are shying away from using images of white people and straight couples. Marketing departments are even putting diversity above relevance to their target audience to avoid accusations of bigotry, a survey of 500 companies has found.”

We’ve seen the Stonetoss comic strip play out repeatedly:

Burgers?

(Yes — that really was the official McDonald’s Twitter account.)

Sandwiches?

Creme eggs?

The advertising industry can’t even sell candy to kids without featuring highly suggestive gay miscegenation.

Online dating site OkCupid pushed the envelope with their ‘Every Single Person’ campaign, which included “every single non-monogamist” messaging. The company had previously brought the world a campaign centred around the acronym DTF (Down to Fuck).

“Black women will lead this nation to a better place” and “we’re taking control” says Tamika Mallory, in a lavishly produced video from Cadillac as part of their Audacity of Blackness campaign. Mallory has been criticized by the New York Times for her vocal support of Louis Farrakhan and black nationalist cop killer Assata Shakur.

At a time when advertising is omnipresent both online and IRL, the onslaught of lavishly funded corporate propaganda matters. The advertising industry is a more sophisticated propaganda apparatus than that of any totalitarian state. Its ability to shape narratives, to alter perceptions and to construct desire is historically unprecedented. As Rod Dreher notes in his book Live Not By Lies, capitalism “harnesses the unmatched propaganda resources of the advertising industry to send the message” and “mans the biggest guns in the culture war”. Campaigners are only too keen to make use of this asset. Cliff Albright, executive director of the political action group Black Voters Matter, told CBS News “the same way they try to convince people to have a Coke and a smile, they need to persuade people to fight voter suppression”.

After years of celebrating gay weddings, advertisers are now at the vanguard of trans lobbying. “Today, on #JUNETEENTH2020”, Calvin Klein model Jari Jones tweeted, “a Fat Black Trans Woman Looks over NEW YORK!!! #BlackTransLivesMatter #ProudinMyCalvins”. The morbidly obese African American transsexual standing triumphantly before a hoarding of her own colossal visage is perhaps the defining image of late capitalism.

An African American female-to-male transsexual looks into a bathroom mirror as his father teaches him to shave. “It’s not just myself transitioning. It’s everybody around me transitioning,” he tells the camera before the words “Gillette The best a man can get” appear on screen. Not to be outdone, Pantene released what was ostensibly a shampoo commercial. A lesbian couple emotionally reveal their adopted child “has always been super gender creative” and “hair has been a big part of her transition” as a pre-teen brushes their shoulder-length hair. Meanwhile Sprite released a video that didn’t feature a single shot of their own product. We’re instead shown a young woman having her breasts bound a physically damaging practice that female-to-male transsexuals use to hide their cleavage, before we’re told that pride is “what you feel when someone you love chooses to be free”. The end reveal of the Sprite logo is the only indication of what is allegedly being sold. Touting the prelude to elective double-mastectomy doesn’t actually generate revenue. What’s really being sold isn’t shampoo or razors or soft drinks: it’s a new identity, a new morality, a new politics.

Terms of service: A free-market Social Credit System

Critiques of woke capitalism often focus on the inconsequential. Whether it’s a barista in Starbucks scribbling the words “Race Together” on your cup of coffee, cereal brand Kellogg’s proclaiming “Black History EVERY Month” or the Oreo account tweeting “Trans people exist”, it’s tempting to simply roll ones eyes. It’s all cringeworthy but also largely insignificant. There is far more at stake here than hashtags.

Writing in Tablet magazine, Michael Lind poses a clarifying thought experiment:

“The only newspaper in the county refuses to take ads for your business. The only bank in the county announces that it is closing your account and calling in your mortgage. Your car breaks down and the only garage and service shop in the county refuses to repair it. The only general store in the county refuses your patronage and the few restaurants in the county turn you away at the door. After you lose your business to the newspaper advertising boycott, you try to get a job, but discover that you have been blacklisted by all of the employers in the county. Nobody will hire you. Are you free, in this scenario, just because there is no official interference with your voting rights and your civil rights? Private power is power, no less than government power. You can be immobilized, impoverished, humiliated, tormented, and perhaps driven to suicide by hostile businesses and banks in an otherwise functioning liberal democracy, just as surely as by the police or military in a dictatorship.”

We’ve been reading about deplatforming from social media for years. It’s difficult to quantify just how many people have been banned from the digital public square over their political opinions but it’s safe to assume it’s at least tens of thousands. People can survive without Twitter, but there’s a new frontier in progressive neoliberalism’s quest for total control: basic necessities of everyday life are now contingent on appeasing the ideological demands of the private sector.

HSBC realise the life-changing implications of being excluded from the financial system: they recently started granting bank accounts to people with no fixed address. Maxine Pritchard, head of financial inclusion and vulnerability at HSBC UK, told The Big Issue: “Without a bank account, people can’t receive benefits which means they can become trapped in their current situation. That just simply isn’t fair.” Working any job other than cash-in-hand labouring is also rendered impossible. If you’re lucky enough to get a hold of any money, spending it could also be a problem. Post-COVID, many businesses won’t accept physical cash. Banks have only ever frozen bank accounts over illegal activity such as money laundering or terrorist financing — until now.

The UK’s Patriotic Alternative is an entirely peaceful and legal organization. It’s leaders have no history of financial impropriety and yet they have had their personal accounts shut down by Monzo, Santander and HSBC. These banks are able to mete out extra-legal punishment for violating their own opaque terms of service, switching off an indispensable facility with no day in court and no right of appeal — they can turn off people’s lives in an instant.

In this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear. Neoliberalism is immunocompromised. Capitalism has terminal GRIDS.

    It’s already started. The 2020 “summer of love” riots and destruction along with the refusal of police to enforce laws and prosecutors who refused to prosecute rioters is a large part of the “plan“. Observe the whites who attempted to defend themselves against rioters who themselves were frivolously charged by prosecutors.
    The marxist revolution is taking place as we speak.
    Of course, the perpetrators “behind the curtain” (we know who you are) who are “calling the shots” have been planning this for decades and are now anticipating the final “push” towards “multiculturalism“, “diversity“, and the government-forced dispossession of whites.

    In terms of social values, capitalism is revealing itself to be much, much worse than communism.

    Perhaps it has to be with transforming everyone into a “consumer” and everything about material excess. No place for any introspection. It’s just the individual consumer, not even the family is contemplated as a unit any longer.

    The Soviet Union, and even Cuba, despite some lip-service feminism, were actually pretty conservative on most social issues. At least they didn’t celebrate homosexuals or criminals, and they didn’t really have propaganda all the time. If you watch Soviet movies if the 1970s, 1980s they had much less overt propaganda than current Hollywood movies or media. It’s become 24/7 race-mixing and homosexual-trangeder stuff. Even I who never watch TV or big media sites can’t escape it.

    General Motors started off by hiring the most giga-gantic HR department to “comply with affirmative action” but in fact to bury their competitors in paperwork. It became a race. Sort of like the Manhattan Project as a PR bomb to rule the world.

    After 50 years the fools got it. All corporations must spend TONS on this diversity crap because their products are imported, shoddy, too expensive. And ask: Any people in any of those adverts up there — would you hire them? Didn’t think so.

  12. Our economy is no longer “capitalist” of we define that term as economy based on private enterprise oriented towards maximizing firm profits.

    The economy has been collectivized, with ownership of major companies and control of key nodes so centralized that we are essentially living under one, huge, vertically integrated corporation.

    The key mechanism enabling this centralization is Big Finance linked to the counterfeiting operation of the Fed. Essentially, a small number of banks and “private equity” companies have been able to take ownership of so many capital assets that they can now coordinate the activities of different industries in a manner that amounts to central planning.

    In his writings on imperialism, Lenin linked the imperialist activities of nation states to the rise of finance capital and it’s ability to collectivize private industry and link it to the interests of national governments.

    Marx’s main criticism of capitalism, as I understand it, was that a system based on private initiative undermined collective objectives.

    The same force that took over the Russian economy in 1917 using the ideology of communism and the grievances of the lower classes to mount violent revolution, has Bolshevised our economy via finance and central bank money printing.

    This writer doesnt have a clie whais the real communism. I was born and raised in most harsh communist place ever seen in the World and that was Albania. That system was fanatical against forigners or race mixing. Enver Hoxha was sendin all those degenerate gays in 25 years hard labor in prison. There were very few gays anyway but those who were were used to open roads and mines until they would die from hard labor. Family union was sacred. You are a man whore or a slut cheating on your partner then it would be years in Prison. The communists invested so much on preserving the traditional cosumes and folklore. We would leard to be educated with morals, nationalism, love for family, friends, neighbors. We had even moral efucation class since in 5 grade middle school. There were no drugs, very few crimes, no abusing and very little corruption. Free health care, schooling, We had state iwned banks. Equal righs for all Albanians.
    Foreigners were firbiden to marry us or have properties and get employeed. kindergarden, universities. Yes they call it dictatirship but i rather would live in that Dictatorship in Albania then in this dirty Fascism of private corporations. Karl Marx himself heavly criticized foreign immigration because it supresses workers wages. Capitalism is all about profit, screwing each other and people are wolfs to each other. We did have 5 year economy plan. THE STUDED THE IMPACTS OF DIFFERENT DEVELOPMENTS IN NATURE AND PEOPLE.

  18. Right, because the big racial problem we’ve had in the last fifty years is rednecks killing blacks and hanging them from trees rather than black thugs robbing, looting, raping, beating up, and murdering countless people of all color and creed.

    This is like making a new law banning scalping. We gotta protect them Indians because the trade in red scalps is bigger than ever.

    The WEF has recently focused on wanting to implement the “Great Reset” in support of its leader’s ideology of trans-humanism. Numerous totalitarian “globohomo” developments that were mentioned in this article are actually being facilitated under the pretext of mandatory gene therapy shots (so-called “vaccinations”) as a precondition for participating in facets of everyday life that used to be taken for granted. I thought it peculiar that this aspect was not even touched upon, even though the field-testing of this scheme, usually in conjunction with smart-phones, has been one of the prevalent themes in over a year.

    Quite the article.

    What is going on? Well, background is massive failure, largely through stupidity, as in 2008, as in massive inflation thanks to Modern Monetary Theory, a foreign policy based on Fukuyama’s _The End of History_. A grand leader who is clearly in the early stages of senility and supported by a staff that with what appears to be an IQ in the 110 range and as strategist (former Pres. Obama) that apparently is in the IQ range of 100-120, with a high ability to improvise linguistically and the usual second generation immigrant idea that politics is a means of getting personal money and power.

    This background suggests one thing: the tendency of governments to fail in the third or fourth generation after their dominance has been established.

    Obvious examples are the various historical Chinese empires, in which dynasties established themselves as vigorous reformers/revolutionaries/conquerors, and then declined. Another is the USSR, which declined from internal causes until it was no longer viable, and the Turkish Ataturk movement, capable of genocide in its early days and then quietly reversed, ending as an effective movement with the failed 2016 coup by the Turkish military (guardians of the Ataturk movement until then).

    Let’s consider the US:
    Basic phenomenon is this: a mass migration to the US from 1840 to 1920 made the US form of government unworkable.
    The form of American urban government changed to the present form, which is a direct descendent of Tammany Hall and similar political organizations in most American cities during the 1800s and the first half of the 1900s (https://www.thoughtco.com/history-of-tammany-hall-1774023). By 1880, the Industrial Revolution gave the recent immigrant inhabitants of cities the money and direct power (of strikes) to make their political organizations serious contenders to the Angl0-Saxon run and rural supported national government. **
    The urban governments were Tammany like organizations, what are now called “political machines”. With the money of industrialization, and the large numbers of second and third generation immigrants, behind them, urban politics was able to provide the cities with stable government.
    Note that “stable” is not necessarily “good” or “bad”. It just means a political form that is not easily overthrown, hence whose dominance is not contested.

    The New Deal campaign overthrew the rural/Anglo-Saxon national government that had preceded it and has since worked to exclude it from US politics.
    Even today (2022-03) the rural US inhabitants are called “hicks” and “deplorables”, and are legally considered to be a suspect group (1964 Civil Rights Act). Rural areas are called “fly-over country” and “red states”, “red” (as in “The Red flag of Revolution”) being the traditional description in English of minority parties contesting an established political order.
    As I recall, the switch in US media color designation for Republicans (formerly blue, color of loyalty to established organizations) to red (with Democrats changed from red to blue) happened in about 2008.

    OK, so much for prolog.

    The US New Deal had effective short term dominance by 1942, but did not gain unchallenged dominance until about 1960, which made it possible for the New Deal Democrats to destroy the Internationalist Democrats (remnants of the once powerful US Irish politicians) led by JFK and later RFK. The unchallenged dominance permitted passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, and a reform of immigration laws. Together, these laws were intended to break the domination of the countryside by its largely Anglo-Saxon (and definitely non-urban) population. This domination lasted until the election of President Trump, which (from the “swamp’s” point of view) was a recrudescence of the Anglo-Saxon countryside, which they had though had been dead and buried some 6 decades earlier.

    What happened?

    Well, there is an obvious but much overlooked thing about conquerors. The Mongols, for example, whose armies could ride from one end of the steppes to another, conquering China and the Middle East but rejecting Western Europe as having bad grazing grounds — their grandchildren couldn’t do that. Their grandchildren hadn’t been raised as nomads with harsh and brutal social forms that were followed only because the alternative was societal defeat and death. Their grandchildren and subsequent generations were a pampered class of functionaries and hangers-on.
    And that’s what happened to the Irish and Italians and the Jews. They became rent-collectors, incapable of the creativity that their grandparent’s had exercised. They, like the Anglo-Saxons before them, simply repeated old forms that had succeeded for their grandparents.
    In practice, they were never able to extend their political organization to the countryside, and became a rentier class, regressing towards the minimum ability required to collect rent and hold down government jobs. They never did extend their control and political machines to the countryside.
    (I should add that the “population explosion” did much the same thing worldwide, making megacities as countrysides rejected young people for whom they had no jobs).

    The New Deal’s dominance had a bit of bad luck, also. Ironically, the cities that birthed the New Deal were economically obsolete by 1960, the hour of the New Deal’s triumph. By 1970 many cities (including New York City) had lost their docks and their light manufacturing economies, which containerization and the advent of large corporations had moved to the countryside. None would lend them more money (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/mac.asp) and they had grossly inadequate tax base.
    The urban based New Deal tried to replace commercial viability with government funds (Federalization of Welfare under LBJ’s Great Society), but as is apparently in 2022, this attempt proved inadequate. Similarly, attempts to maintain political viability by increasing urban welfare populations had changed. The old New Deal coalition immigrants moved out when their jobs vanished, and were replaced by new groups whose qualification was their inability to get income except as a vote form or as government officials. The historic Jewish ability to be “servants of the Crown” in Europe kept most Jews in cities also, so now New York City is about 1/4 Jewish and the rest of its population effectively BIPOCS.
    The present push for foreign immigration is essentially an attempt of the grandchildren of the original New Dealer’s to retain enough urban population to continue Federal subsidies of urban areas, as is the attempt to retain power through foreign wars.

    These hopes are doomed. The New Deal is at the decadent end of its life cycle, as was the USSR after about 70 years of dominance. This happens to political organizations. If the countryside is still culturally Anglo-Saxon, then it will reproduce some historical form previously used by the Anglo-Saxon — perhaps the Seven Kingdoms (https://www.historyhit.com/the-great-kingdoms-of-the-anglo-saxons/), complete with high art and vicious bloodshed. Minerva’s owl flies at dusk. We can see the old system because it is ending. Like Minerva’s owl, we can see the remnants of yesterday, but not the dawn that is to come.
    —————————————- Notes ————————————–
    ** Note that during the 1800s, Jewish groups were not dominant in Tammany Hall. Irish were, the Irish being the primary immigrants due to the potato crop failure in Europe and the Great Starvation. Note that the potato failure was not restricted to Ireland, and affected all of Western Europe. Irish were not the only immigrants during the 1800s, but they did dominate urban politics, and apparently thought that the Anglo-Saxon in American were simply another form of English overlord. This led to difficulties in integrating the Irish population, and to the development of Progressivism as an aid to integration.
    The present dominance/influence of APIC and similar groups dates to the early 1900s, when massive Jewish immigration to the US increased Jewish influence, and introduced serious attempts at the Left revolution; these attempts were coupled with those of Italian immigrants, who favored Anarchism. Assassination attempts on US elected officials, the Boston Police Strike, and dynamite bombs eventually led to closing of immigration in the 1920s.
    Those who blame Jewish groups for all political troubles are far from correct. Jewish groups dominated in 1960s through about the present, taking advantage of a traditional Jewish role as “servant’s to the Crown”, but have now been classified by the US Federal Governments as “white”, hence a suspect group, and are gradually being forced out of their “servant to the Crown” jobs by other groups, most notably the “BIPOCs”. As an example, consider the current Jewish loss of Hollywood, which produced much of the New Deal’s propaganda.

Should they organise AND bring along significant numbers of other groups the Elites would be in big trouble. Therefore they (whites) must be weakened.

Thus, people have become blind to the class war, so successfully turbo charged in the 80’s & on. Declining living standards ? Unemployed? Inflation of every vital thing or service? (homes to health, education etc) All, the result of Elite policy & plans.
    The masses know something is wrong but can’t quite put it together. ( after all, neoliberalism & neoconservatism are the biggest of the BIG lies).
    Don’t forget – the Elites know that they are evil — tho not personally: me? I’m just doing what’s “right” — but those other ones? Definitely some bad sorts.

    In 2019 The Washington Post reported that the Business Roundtable, a group “representing the nation’s most powerful chief executives” had “abandoned the idea that companies must maximize profits for shareholders above all else”. An official statement from the Roundtable set out to redefine the purpose of a corporation, with a new raison d’être that included fostering “diversity and inclusion”.


    Propaganda is only truly effective when it isn’t recognized as such.

    And this statement provides evidence to that effect.

    The largest Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks have continued to gobble-up the largest “competing” corporations, in most every single industry, across most every continent.
    Effectively creating massive but largely-covert monopolies.

    Example:
    The largest shareholders/owners of EACH Amazon, Google. Apple, Microsoft, et al. include:
    Vanguard, BlackRock, State Street, Invesco, T Rowe Price, the Capital Group, et al.
    (source = SEC 13 d/f/g share ownership filings).

    And rather than existing as mere passive investors, this CARTEL of largest Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks actively manage the Executives and Boards of these corporate assets they own.
    Most often even demanding (buying) Board seats as condition of their massive share purchases.
    And in the world of investments, one share equals one vote, thus those with the largest numbers of shares have the largest influence, via more votes.

    Phrases and concepts like “diversity”, “inclusion”, even “justice” and such have been reduced to mere marketing slogans.

    And, whereas this article states that:
    Corporations started to hire full time staff in order to keep track of government mandates…
    This is only a partial truth.
    Those corporations are first Lobbying to create those government mandates, creating more massive regulations that small businesses cannot afford to keep up with.

    I used to work in Politics, and was surprised to see how many Big Corporate Lobbyists were pushing for more special-interest legislation.
    I had formerly been led to believe that Big Corporate opposed greater regulation, but after talking to a good number of Lobbyists discovered that greater regulations were actually a form of Big Corporate protectionism.

    Thus rather than truly living up to the propagandist narrative that Customers and Employees come first, the true goal is greater profits for these largest shareholders.
    This CARTEL is effectively eliminating true market competition, by setting conditions that favor their corporate assets.

    Perhaps one of the most ironic facts & consequences here is that whilst so many “Conservatives” and “Republicans” have spent decades rallying for & defending the rights of Big Corporate and Big Money, that CARTEL of Big Corporate and Big Money entities is now emerging as the defacto creators of the corporato-socialist neo-feudal order.

    And where many on the “Left” have spent decades rallying for more Big Government to curb the abuses of that Big Corporate & Big Money, they have now all been combined & integrated with each other.
    The neo-feudal Lords that control the corporations, also now effectively control politics and the government, hence similarly the public policy machine.

    Most all forms of “socialism” require central ownership & planning to actually work.
    And this CARTEL of Big Asset Management firms & Big Banks have become those central Owners & planners.
    The Big Bank ownership of the FED, the largest central planning entity on the planet, is evidence.
    (those Big Banks themselves are largely owned by this CARTEL).
    As is the increasingly concentrated ownership of the largest “competing” corporations, in most every single industry, across most all continents, by this CARTEL.

    Hello there, Mr. AlboEagle.

    I believe you when you talk about your experience in “Communist” Albania. But what you’re describing is not orthodox Communism. The Mensheviks believed that the world-wide spread of Communism was inevitable because of the “dialectic” that is automatically moving in that direction.

    The Bolsheviks wanted to speed up the process. They didn’t have time to wait for the “dialectic” to work. They seized power in Russia and tried to impose their will upon the rest of Europe (and Asia) after WWII.

    The National Bolsheviks believed they could build Communism in one country by sheer force of will. I guess the shorthand way of describing the NazBols is to call them “Stalinists”. Your vision of a racist, nationalistic, traditional “Communism” is simply fascism without the private ownership of companies.

    And I’ll also admit that your vision of things sounds pretty good, right about now. I guess Hoxha would have flipped his lid if anybody tried making a tv commercial of an Albanian girl fornicating with an African man.

    Good for him.

    Actually, fascism is where the government forces corporations to work for the benefit of the people.. communism is where the government is the corporations.. what we have in the west is jewish capitalism (aka oligarchy) where capitalists (aka oligarchs who have all the capital) run the show.

    America was built on Aryan free Enterprise.. which is more akin to voluntary fascism… Where companies invested in their workers and community not because of the law but because they were also their own people. If you look through history, all the companies that treated their workers bad enough to require the creation of unions were run by the usual suspects.

    Always remember.. everything the communists say about capitalism is true.. and everything the capitalists say about communism is also true.

    Communism is the economic system created by Bolshevik Jews to seize control of a people’s labor output.

    Capitalism is the economic system created by Zionist Jews to seize control of a people’s labor output.

    OK, so why the “social justice”? theme.

    The elite is, as previously mentioned, a hold-over. Membership in the elite is largely social — have the right manners, have the right history, have the right enemies, have the right ancestors — rather than having the right abilities. The organizations thus formed have very limited capabilities, limited to what they have done before.

    Given an organization of deadwood, the use of power within the organization becomes difficult. People have a “zone of indifference”, a set of orders that they will execute without question (example: “We will be meeting tomorrow right after lunch, 1:00 PM”). Orders outside that zone are not obeyed (example: “Wear a blue dress tomorrow.”
    “Do this, which violates Union rules.”). In a deadwood organization, “zones of indifference” shrink. You get an organization of Wally’s, to use the Dilbert analogy. Nobody will do anything, anybody who tries is attacked and destroyed, and there is nothing that can be done to change the situation.

    Critical Race Theory (CRT) permits the exercise of power within a deadwood organization. The power cannot be exercised productively — it cannot make product, for example — but it can be exercised politically. Political exercise of this power can gain the subsidies and political favor that an organization of deadwood needs if it is to continue existing.

    This explains the growth of “social justice” within urban areas after about 1970. Social Justice has no content, except insofar as it legitimizes government provided resources. These resources include money, positioning of location independent government / corporate facilities in urban areas, limited immunity to Federal law in the form of tolerating the “sanctuary cities”, the “open borders” programs that provides foreigners to keep up the urban population base, favorable press treatment, and so on.

    Essentially, corporations that have become zombies (are all deadwood), hence dependent on government resources, have quite sensibly devoted most of their efforts to political projects that will harvest these government resources. Anything else would have led to their dissolution.

    That these corporate efforts should impinge on the general public and other organizations is no surprise. The government itself is failing (as noted in my previous message) and itself needs all the help it can get. The entire composite is dysfunctional, and exists only through the application of political power.

    Since corporate and government is staffed and led by deadwood, incapable of productive effort, power must be exercised in ways that (a) have no relation to reality and (b) can be understood and possibly believed by anybody with an IQ in the approximate range 70-140. Exercise of power becomes the art of building slogans that will gather followers. Historical precedents include the first phase of the French Revolution, which involved using orators to gather Parisian mobs that were then used to assault one’s enemies.

    BIPOCs**, and any other group that cannot or does not want to participate in a cognitively demanding society (Antifa, for example), are good sources for mobs, and tend to take the casualties of mob action without garnering the rewards.

    It’s really as simple as that. The “ruling elite” is in its final generation, this elite is staffing both government and corporate organizations, it cannot do anything economically productive in an industrial society, and is therefore relying on raw power to keep itself “in power”. Its political rhetoric make no sense because they cannot make sense and still gather the mobs needed. The abandonment of sense is made acceptable to most by Postmodernism (https://www.jordanbpeterson.com/philosophy/postmodernism-definition-and-critique-with-a-few-comments-on-its-relationship-with-marxism/). Postmodernism makes productive action impossible for the ruling elite, but remember that the ruling elite is in the 3rd or 4th generation descended from the original conquerors, hence composed of rentiers who are incapable of productive action anyway, so the impossibility make no practical difference.

    Brief summary: There is a cycle to government. We are living under a governmental and social elite that is in an irreversible process of dissolution. All that the elite does or says is part of that dissolution. Standard of living is dropping and will remain low. We are starting to see propaganda that justifies this drop. The process of elite dissolution ends with replacement of the current elite by another elite that does not terminally interfere with the feeding, housing, clothing, etc. of the country’s base population, and the dissolution of the failing corporations that the elite populated and supported. Historical example: USSR, 1980-1995.

    ** BIPOC:: Black, indigenous, and people of color. Apparently Blacks are not “people of color”.

    Right you are. White European descended people invented industrial society, they like it, it is built for them, and only they are able to maintain it (albeit only by intense effort). If you don’t believe me on this, then ask any of the protest groups in the US what they think of “whiteness”, what “whiteness” is, and ask yourself whether and industrial society could continue without whiteness.

    This is the basic problem for the elites. No “whiteness”, no industrial society, and world population drops back from about 7 billion people to to one or two billion people. The elites would not survive even the early stages of that drop.

    “The [top-down anti-democratic movement of neoliberal corporatocracy] mission ,, sets out not just to drive margin [but it also seeks ] to create [and impose] movements… where supply and demand converge .. on the notion of a world changing mission.” "access to capital depends on political agenda [of the capital seeker]".
    access to media depends on the political agenda [of the content provider]; access to jobs depends on one's political agenda; access to housing depends on one's political agenda.

    The Marxist revolution in the west has long since replaced bottom up self-determined democracy and open access competitive capitalism with various forms of rich man's republics and copyright, franchise, government private partnership and patent powered monopolisms.

    Western nations are already Markist, but those they govern are still capitalist. Unfortunately the vote of the American in USA conducted elections, counts for nothing the masses really want; the [divide and conquer] two party trap and the MSM controlled narrative and politically correctness gated access to media have allowed Markism to be the only option. This single option idea explains failure of the West to negotiate with Russia over Ukraine.. .Russia and China have by their recent treaty become a singularity in markets and political direction. As one, they each regulate access to monopoly powers and they each carefully gate project access to capital so that competitive forces and capital supports society taken as a whole without much regard for the gain or loss of the contractor needs.

    It is not anti-asian propaganda to acknowledge you’re getting your ass kicked in balance of trade and attempt to do something about it.
    It is not anti-asian propaganda to demand that manufacturing be brought back to the US.
    Peasants in other countries have a right to demand that their governments and corporations protect their borders and stop offshoring employment to asian countries. Yet, every time they do they’re “anti-asian” bigots. Whatever Whites attempt to do, to better their circumstance, always some scumbag calls them anti this or that, bigot,racist, blah blah blah.

    An ICE officer who received an alert told The Washington Times that agency employees usually handling enforcement within the country could be deployed to the southern border to help with Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

    ‘We are on a massive crash trajectory for the system,’ the officer said.

    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials confirmed Tuesday that they are prepared for migrant flows to reach a ‘very high’ contingency of 18,000 people per day. This would equate to more than 500,000 each month.

  53. Oliver Williams: “If you were to vote with your feet and boycott these companies you would be reduced to the lifestyle of Ted Kaczynski …”

    And this is the heart of the matter, which the author dances all around but won’t squarely face. If everyone lived like Ted Kaczynski, and did so by withdrawing from the modern world, then none of this would be a problem. Reading the article, one is left with the impression (irresistible to the conspiracy theorist mentality that abounds here) that all of this modernity and decadence is, somehow, being imposed upon people against their will, when nothing could be further from the truth. The current system could not exist, and in fact would never have come into existence at all without their enthusiastic participation.

    It must be admitted, most people aren’t strong enough. They aren’t philosophers and have no taste for an ascetic life. It may or may not be a good thing, but it turns out not everyone can be a Kaczynski, a Diogenes or a Thoreau. If they were, technological civilization would collapse, and all of these problems would vanish. Note well that none of those guys had a job or wanted one. They didn’t have or need a Paypal or Gofundme account, or even a blog. Consequently, they didn’t worry about being fired, deplatformed, or whether they might be “cancelled”. Those are modern worries for the over-socialized cuckolds who want the so-called benefits of technological civilization but don’t want to pay the price, like an alcoholic who loves the high but hates the cirrhosis that’s killing him. Yet the price will be exacted from you, whether you want to pay or not, because the world is a merciless place.

    Of course, the perpetrators “behind the curtain” (we know who you are) who are “calling the shots” have been planning this for decades and are now anticipating the final “push” towards “multiculturalism“, “diversity“, and the government-forced dispossession of whites.

    Of course you’re right. But it will fail. In fact, it is failing. And it would fail even if everyone went along willingly. Because even in that case the interests of everyone involved are simply too divergent.

    This is what Steve Sailer was getting at in his comment about the coalition of the fringes and how antiwhite hatred is the crazy glue holding that coalition together.

    Now that they have achieved their goal of crushing whites they’re going to have to make good on their claims to everyone involved. But there are too many interested parties involved. So they’ll never really be able to make good on their claims. Not that they ever really intended to. Anyway, you get the idea. They simply promised too much.

    And that’s just one aspect of their scam. But the #1 reason their scam will fail is because the real mark in this scame is Reality itself. And Reality always wins!

    So, we have virtue-signalling for SES (social-economic status) competition at the corporate level-class of social organisms. This then amounts to a liberal bias in the leadership of many corporations, even a majority thereof. By liberal here I mean simply the basic personality trait of being a person/social organism with a general tendency to seek change, as opposed to a conservative’s tendency to maintain a status quo. Both can be seen as strategies for maintaining or increasing one’s power.

    What we have in the USA’s democracy is a duality/a choice for voters between two parties, one a liberal type and one conservative. Both of these parties have long been sold-out to big money power elite control, and so what we do not have is a democracy that gives voters a choice between the other, more fundamental, duality: lower SES and elite. This is of course the basic division that was analyzed by Marx, but also, very interestingly, by Jefferson and many others before Marx. It is a true distinction and true dynamic internal to any society/social organism at all levels and in all arenas of human life from family to workplace to nation.

    The USA’s elites are now carrying out a liberal-vs-conservative war, each seeking to maintain/increase its power, in the realm of ideologies-values and effectively distracting us from the basic need to level-out (reduce power-wealth gap) the SES landscape in order to maintain social harmony and discourage corruption. What’s desperately needed is a third party that represents the sub-elites as a opposition to the elite power duopoly. Then we would have a more complete democracy, a truer democracy, more like Jefferson would have envisioned. If this party does not form soon enough, then we will have a revolutionary party. The distraction of the war over wokism will not last forever, and as the economy gets tighter and the wealth-power gap gets wider, and opiates and propaganda get weaker…

    There is a way out of the two party trap — write-in None of the Above in every election. If anyone asks why, simply say you are removing your consent to be governed. It doesn’t mean much when one person does it, but millions would call into question the government’s legitimacy…

    Corporates need not make any profits anymore – FED will lend them InfiniteMoney®©; they now take up their next level of evolution – propaganda and perversion. And they are not accountable to people or their little contrivances like police, law, justice. They have a mission – to turn the whole humanity into a feudal mass of serfs.

    I disagree. In this Era of Capitalist Imperialism, that of the hyper-dominance of Finance Capital, the interests of corporations lies not in ignoring profits, but in achieving them through a cosmopolitan perspective in which nations and their people who adhere to their nations are a hindrance. The latter cannot survive without “conservative” points of reference, norms – not least sexual norms, but also racial (at least in some controlled measure). That’s why they try to subvert all of them. Jews, the archetypal cosmopolitans fit into the centre of this subversion through the economic position of their elites as well as the disdain historically felt by ordinary Jews for Christian nations. But the fundamental driving force is not “Jews”, but the abstract character of evolved capitalism, the sine qua non of all our troubles.

    @Mario Partisan

    Our economy is no longer “capitalist” of we define that term as economy based on private enterprise oriented towards maximizing firm profits.

    The economy has been collectivized, with ownership of major companies and control of key nodes so centralized that we are essentially living under one, huge, vertically integrated corporation.

    Lenin rejected this possibility, not conceptually, but as being overtaken by revolution. How wrong this was. It has happened to a considerable degree (all in the hands of “a global cartel”), but with production vastly more outsourced than he could have dreamed of and in many ways, superseding “world revolution”, not replacing it as suggested by the top German Marxist, Kautsky.

    The key mechanism enabling this centralization is Big Finance linked to the counterfeiting operation of the Fed. Essentially, a small number of banks and “private equity” companies have been able to take ownership of so many capital assets that they can now coordinate the activities of different industries in a manner that amounts to central planning.

    This is true and the same phenomenon was apparent when Lenin wrote on this (1916) as well as in the decades before. Instead of capitalism being family based, expansion required an increasing role for finance. This has evolved in the C20th and C21st to caricature that earlier phase.

    Marx’s main criticism of capitalism, as I understand it, was that a system based on private initiative undermined collective objectives.

    Marx’s main “criticism” lay in what he thought were the fundamental contradictions within it’s economic set-up that would lead to its inevitable demise. He would regard consideration like you mention as secondary and utopian.

    The same force that took over the Russian economy in 1917 using the ideology of communism and the grievances of the lower classes to mount violent revolution, has Bolshevised our economy via finance and central bank money printing.

    I disagree. The strange goings on in capitalist imperialism today (at base caused by the need for extreme cosmopolitanising and thus the subversion of nation states) are entirely endogenous to the system, result from its internal development. “Communism” as a peculiar economic system and thus as a serious force, died three decades ago.

    Publius 2’s comment, TINVOWOOT, that we won’t get out of this by voting, is accurate. Think of None of the Above as a political trigger, similar to the Boston Tea Party… The Boston Tea Party, by itself, was inconsequential and did not “win” the American Revolution.

    The united States of America was largely successful due to the (lack of) ethics of most builders of industry, raking in millions in profits for themselves while ignoring the basic needs of those who made their success possible by their hard work.
    It was common to see these “captains of industry” do their damnedest to pay their employees as little as possible while raking in massive profits benefiting only themselves.
    These “captains of industry” attempted to redeem themselves by establishing “foundations” (which guarded their wealth, making it tax exempt) and indirectly countering their own beliefs that it was not necessary to pay their employees a “decent wage”.
    They always pleaded poverty to their employees while living grand lives themselves.
    One must not forget the “company town” with the “company store” which was a more advanced form of “slavery”, putting people in bondage by charging artificially inflated prices for goods while their employees wages were “not quite enough” to escape the cycle. Those who attempted to escape the “company town” were threatened with lawsuits and more for “moneys owed” to the company…
    These injustices contributed to the rise of labor unions, which at first, were brutally suppressed.
    There were exceptions, such as Henry Ford, who almost single-handedly created the middle class by paying his employees well above “market wages” of the day. Ford’s \$5.00 per day wage was not entirely altruistic as it was also instituted to stem “turnover” as assembly line work was monotonous, but his writings have stated that one of his objectives along with the institution of the 8-hour workday was to make it possible for workers to “enjoy the fruits of their labor”.
    The “robber baron” label is actually a valid description of “free-market capitalism”. Today’s proponents of “capitalism” and “free markets” have it wrong. We have never had truly “free markets”…

    Can you still access the OKCupid stat geek analyst page where the worse prospects are short men and black women with all the embarrassing numbers?

    OKCupid, like many other dating sites, was taken over by match.com. Its blog now carries predictable globohomo articles.

    The old blog is much more interesting, and is available in archive.org. It was written by OKCupid co-founder Christian Rudder, and looked at what we can learn by analyzing the trove of data provided by OKCupid users. It was one of the first popular works on the power of “Big Data” and “data mining”. Some of its insights are amazing.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20160819121200/http://blog.okcupid.com/

    Rudder expanded the blog output into a book, “Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No One’s Looking)”:

    I pity the poor guy who put that together who wishes he was anonymous now.

    IIRC he was quite meticulous about reporting what OKCupid users do, rather than asserting his own opinions. Wokesters would probably prefer to ignore Rudder’s work than to draw attention to the unpalatable truths that he “discovered”.

  78. Corporate America has another motivation for being woke. It was spooked by the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011, and wanted to redirect radicals into causes that would not harm the bottom line. So much the better if those causes also humiliated the majority of their employees, and made them feel that their jobs were insecure and could be terminated in the name of “social justice”.

    This is the theme of the book “Woke, Inc.” by Vivek Ramaswamy, reviewed here:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9905339/How-companies-profiting-woke-ism.html

    From the main article:

    In 2019 The Washington Post reported that the Business Roundtable, a group “representing the nation’s most powerful chief executives” had “abandoned the idea that companies must maximize profits for shareholders above all else”. An official statement from the Roundtable set out to redefine the purpose of a corporation, with a new raison d’être that included fostering “diversity and inclusion”.

    Ramaswamy accuses corporations such as Coca-Cola, Delta, and Amazon of pretending to care about social justice to boost profits: “Here’s how it works: pretend like you care about something other than profit and power, precisely to gain more of each.”

    And who is better to report the Business Roundtable’s revolting lie than a newspaper owned by the world’s richest man!

    It would be a winning move for some bright young go-getter to start such an organization.

    Not until:
    a) There is a food shortage, unemployment is high, and it is apparent that government and business on all levels can’t do much more than try to justify these conditions. That’s what got Pres. Hoover and the Anglo-Saxons, and that’s visibly on the way.

    b) The government’s regime protection forces have lost effectiveness. For example, in the East Germany revolution, about 1/3 of the population was employed by the regime protection domestic intelligence organization (STASI). When came the revolution, the immense amount of effort required to understand that many reports gave a 3 day lag to intelligence summaries, making them useless. In the USSR, the late 1990 insurgents were the hard line Communists, and the intel people didn’t report to the hard line Communists; moreover, the Army wasn’t loyal to them. In the US today, there is enough domestic spying to quash any attempt (legitimate or not, considering Pres. Trump) in the kind of organization you might mean. Things have to deteriorate enough that the sheer mass of people opposed to the current organizational form overwhelms the intelligence agencies and military units. The fraction of parents who don’t want their kids to be castrated by the Trans movement (a single horror in a house of horrors) is close to the fraction required to be overwhelming **, were it a fraction of the entire population. Keeping a lid on things will be quite the problem for the elite establishment in 2022.

    Blacks are not ” natural conservatives”. They have high rates of sociopathy. And they frequently engage in “down low” homosexuality (studies of prisoners have found that prisoners often engage an homosexuality before they ever were incarcerated, in other words sociopaths are literally gay). Black homophobia is more derived from primal “pick on the weakest of the pack” thinking than anything else (such thinking also leads to more contempt shown towards those on the receiving end of gayness, as opposed to wholesome norms dictating equal opposition against those on either end of the act)

    And blacks have gotten more enthusiastically Democrat as the party has become increasingly degenerate. But let’s not forget: blacks are more degenerate than other groups to begin with. They fit right in.

    Hispanic men are trending more conservative due to their disgust at Democrats becoming the party of blacks and perverted, decadent whites.
