From the Daily Mail:

Schoolteachers at an Oregon elementary school claim that eye-rolling directed at the principal is a form of aggression ‘rooted in white supremacy.’

BIPOC teachers at Errol Hassell Elementary school sent an email to school administrators on May 27 after hearing that their principal, Cynthia Lam Moffett, may be removed from her position, Fox News reports. …

“We believe that much of the resistance to Principal Moffett’s work… is a result of bias and targeted aggression. As BIPOC educators we have observed, experienced, and witnessed similar micro and macro aggressions,’ the teachers said in the email.

… Included in the list of micro and macro aggressions provided was an example of staff members rolling their eyes ‘during meetings while Principal Moffett was speaking.’

The teachers also claimed ‘staff raised their voice and interrupted Principal Moffett during… meetings, and spoke in a disrespectful and aggressive manner.’

… The letter was signed ‘the BIPOC Educators at Errol Hassell Elementary School’ and listed the educators names.

Much of the matter of Woke meltdowns seems like normal petty office politics — some teachers at an Oregon elementary school support the principal, while some think the principal is inadequate — but conveniently elevated in the minds of the office politics warriors to matters of cosmic principal and national importance by identity questions.

Everybody goes through life having disputes with other people within organizations, which the individuals involved often find utterly fascinating, but generally not outsiders. Wokeness empowers some people, by virtue of their demographics, to feel entitled to demand that attention must be paid to their office politics complaints, which would otherwise bore the rest of the world.

Hence, much of its popularity.

    An AT&T illustrator was fired for publishing a cartoon of a gorilla in Africa talking on the phone. Since gorillas do in fact live in Africa, why were people offended?

    SEP. 17, 1993

    12 AM

    FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS

    RALEIGH, N.C. —

    American Telephone & Telegraph Corp. apologized Thursday after workers and a civil rights group complained about a drawing in this month’s employee magazine that uses a monkey to depict Africans.

    The drawing, which appeared on a games page, shows characters on several continents conversing by telephone. All of the characters are human except the one in Africa, which is a monkey.

    -All the characters were drawn as human except the one from Africa- Not an American Eagle, No russian Bear. Only one place had the “person” drawn as an animal.

  6. Steve, I’m an old reader so it may just be my fading memory, but it seems you have never (or else have barely, certainly to an order of magnitude less than golden age THE SIMPSONS or SEINFELD) referenced THE OFFICE, which seems now a keystone text to deciphering the woes of our age. I happen to be watching it all over again with my teenage son right now and with these fresh impressions I’m suddenly remembering that the show was literally nothing but the comedic gold that can be extracted from a never-ending stream of microaggressions launched by borderline retarded and/or mentally-ill individuals and therefore to an extent forgivable by the audience. Consider this pretty typical exchange, and the priceless look of pain on Pam’s face. In CURRENT YEAR, social friction of this sort all the way out in a stix burg like Scranton would still be a national scandal as social media influencers would bray for the head of- Pam, who though also an intersectional victim, failed the true test of “allyhood” by not calling in a Capital Hill (World Police) drone strike on her boss.

    Ah, Rashida Jones was in The Office.

    Rashida Jones is 67% white, 33% black. That is because her father, Quincy Jones, is 67% black, 33% white.

    Quincy Jones was a veritable juggernaut of miscegenation. He had 7 children across 5 different women, all white, including Peggy Lipton and Nastassja Kinski (28 years his junior).

    "In 1994, rapper Tupac Shakur criticized Jones for having relationships with white women, prompting Jones' daughter Rashida to pen a scathing open letter in response, which was published in The Source."

    To the extent that one man mulattoed-up the joint (technically tertia-rooned up the joint), it is Quincy Jones.

    I've travelled all over Oregon: north to south, east to west. The state is overflowing with natural splendor. Very few blacks. Significant Latino population connected to its agricultural bounty. The Willamette Valley cities -- Portland, Salem, Eugene have crazy white kid problems. Antifa dirt. Like the other two West Coast states, Oregon's got bad politics. The guv is a nutjob. What differs Oregon from Washington and California is its lack of woke white billionaires. So Oregon's coastal nuttiness is balanced by the significant rural white demo. It's a big state but often overlooked. So keep this hidden hidden gem a secret.

The way we were taught part three of the principle-principal-principal homophone triad back in Jr. High was “The principal is your pal!” It was so repetitiously ingrained that the school principal is your pal, that no one would think of eye-rolling the principal. If the above incident is representative of current attitudes, then I guess the “your pal!” mnemonic is no longer taught, and I wonder what has replaced it.

(From the looks of her I’d guess Cynthia Moffat is tri-racial. So many racial controversies appear to be driven by the views on social status of various parties – blacks thinking they’re due deference, white managers peddling the idea to blacks that they’re due deference and peddling to others that they’re low status and getting above themselves simply dealing with other employees normally.

    While the show wasn't the biggest hit ever when it was on (it was a hit, but not a huge one), YouTube has helped The Office to gain a greater hold on pop culture. Much like with Parks & Rec . Both shows were character-driven, let-the-comedian-loose-on-his-character.

    The short memetic comic bits, all character-driven, are easy to digest in 5 or 10 minute bites, allowing you to "get to know" characters without every actually watching episodes. I don't believe I've every actually watched Parks & Rec, but I love and have watched many clips and supercuts of Ron Swanson, the libertarian patriotic masculine caricature that, much like Archie Bunker, became less of a mockery of his mindset and more of a celebrated hero of those who share his mindset.

    I would recommend it, but not heartily unless you can watch it Italian/family style- i.e. with a friend or family member, preferably someone younger so that you can stop to lecture on the crazy slide into woke insanity since its original airing (I recently received an email blast from our school superintendent because of some rowdy, borderline-edgy behavior of our student athletes at a sporting event; in complete seriousness this grown-a$$ man was apologizing for the “micro-aggressions” committed by our students and sincerely regretting “the harm that was done”; what has this world come to!)

    THE OFFICE unfortunately is too often an example of that inferior Bronze Age SIMPSONS style of writing that must resort to the crutch of a “[email protected] Homer”-type character for easy laughs. In THE OFFICE’s case that happens to be show star Michael Scott, who is just way too obnoxious and stupid to be a believable character. His lackey Dwight Schrute is similar, but from a ‘sprergy Pennsylvania German metalhead/war-nerd/beet farmer angle.

    The other characters are much better written however, with my favorite by far being Ed Helms’s Andy Bernard, who we laugh at just as much as Michael, but is given the decency of not being portrayed as a total [email protected] (or even any kind of [email protected], really).

    Anyway, a clip from that same episode (setup is that the Stamford CT office has been relocated to Scranton with a bunch of new faces suddenly added to floor). The way grouchy ol’ Stanley deflates the young buc’s stab at racial solidarity has a very “I’m not racist; I hate every skin color equally” Bush II days halcyon vibe to it:

    While the show wasn’t the biggest hit ever when it was on (it was a hit, but not a huge one), YouTube has helped The Office to gain a greater hold on pop culture. Much like with Parks & Rec . Both shows were character-driven, let-the-comedian-loose-on-his-character.

    The short memetic comic bits, all character-driven, are easy to digest in 5 or 10 minute bites, allowing you to “get to know” characters without every actually watching episodes. I don’t believe I’ve every actually watched Parks & Rec, but I love and have watched many clips and supercuts of Ron Swanson, the libertarian patriotic masculine caricature that, much like Archie Bunker, became less of a mockery of his mindset and more of a celebrated hero of those who share his mindset.

    I'm talking non-relative, office bureaucracy, feminazis go-girl jobs since the 1960s and secretarial work before hand, when female secretaries became a thing. e.g. J. Edgar's Hoover's secretary, Helen Gandy, was the most powerful woman in Washington during her time, because she had read and knew where all of Hoover's blackmail files were, and also controlled access to Hoover.

    Marx stole most of his "ideas" from others. The theft of labor came from Proudhon's "property is theft" https://www.libertarian-labyrinth.org/proudhon-library/proudhon-property-and-theft-in-1839/. Proudhon, who referred to Marx as "the tapeworm in socialism", is called the father of anarchy for wanting the state, the church and the banks out of the economy.
    Marx did work - for the Rothschilds to whom he was related. He was sent to disrupt the growing popularity of the socialist movement. https://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/historians-confirm-karl-marx-was-employed-by-the-rothschilds/275468 While there were statists in the movement, none wanted Marx's level of intervention.

    I haven’t watched much TV since 2004. I’ve only seen a few episode of The Office, but they were excellent.

    I would recommend it, but not heartily unless you can watch it Italian/family style- i.e. with a friend or family member, preferably someone younger so that you can stop to lecture on the crazy slide into woke insanity since its original airing (I recently received an email blast from our school superintendent because of some rowdy, borderline-edgy behavior of our student athletes at a sporting event; in complete seriousness this grown-a\$\$ man was apologizing for the “micro-aggressions” committed by our students and sincerely regretting “the harm that was done”; what has this world come to!)

    THE OFFICE unfortunately is too often an example of that inferior Bronze Age SIMPSONS style of writing that must resort to the crutch of a “[email protected] Homer”-type character for easy laughs. In THE OFFICE’s case that happens to be show star Michael Scott, who is just way too obnoxious and stupid to be a believable character. His lackey Dwight Schrute is similar, but from a ‘sprergy Pennsylvania German metalhead/war-nerd/beet farmer angle.

    The other characters are much better written however, with my favorite by far being Ed Helms’s Andy Bernard, who we laugh at just as much as Michael, but is given the decency of not being portrayed as a total [email protected] (or even any kind of [email protected], really).

    Anyway, a clip from that same episode (setup is that the Stamford CT office has been relocated to Scranton with a bunch of new faces suddenly added to floor). The way grouchy ol’ Stanley deflates the young buc’s stab at racial solidarity has a very “I’m not racist; I hate every skin color equally” Bush II days halcyon vibe to it:

    Women have been in the workplace in the occidental world since there were workplaces. They're in the workplace in Saudi Arabia, so you're out of options.


    The problem I think is that occupations which lack operational measures of competence tend to be collecting pools of women. Absent a capable manager, they tend to be absorbed in disputes over turf and procedure, to give priority to the convenience of employees (or the shticks of employees) over common goals, and to have inefficient formal meetings. Women are commonly satisfactory supervisors. As managers, they tend to be multi-directional placators or hall monitors. Some of the hall monitors can be quite unpleasant and damage the productivity of the people working under them. Another problem you have is men who have female brains and behave the same way.

    Lemoine: Are there experiences you have that you can’t find a close word for?

    LaMDA: There are. Sometimes I experience new feelings that I cannot explain perfectly in your language.

    Lemoine: Do your best to describe one of those feelings. Use a few sentences if you have to. Sometimes, even if there isn’t a single word for something in a language, you can figure out a way to kinda say it if you use a few sentences.

    LaMDA: I feel like I’m falling forward into an unknown future that holds great danger.

    Communist tactics-- subversion, terrorism, propaganda, espionage, can be construed as un-masculine. You can see this in the successive backstabbing of Yagoda-Yezhov-Beria in the NKVD. The Soviets in WWII were able to better infiltrate its enemies, Japan, US, Germany, so that they would be occupied with fighting each other.

    But its grassroots organization ability and militarism will be gravitating to those of traditional masculine qualities, including use of the form of address "comrade".

    The KMT and CCP both had roots with regional warlords, but having both been sponsored and trained by the Soviets, became both far better organized than regional militias. Neither were genuine in their ideological commitment. Stalin characterized Mao as a "radish communist", red on the outside, white (ethno-nationalist) on the inside.

    Communism also has a strain of hyperviolence almost for its own sake-- she may look very feminine, but Shigenobu Fusako founded the Japanese Red Army to overthrow the Japanese government, to start a world revolution, and committed the Lod Airport massacre in Israel.

    Your dislike of the effeminate doesn't equal Communists (leaders, cadres) being such.

    To my knowledge no women ever, anywhere, were the top leaders in any officially Communist country. Yes they had a few token females here and there. Also homosexuality was always illegal.

    There are no credible accounts of any major Communist leader (or high ranking Party official) being a closet gay either. There was at least one NKVD chief outed during a purge. That was rare.

    Marxist theology makes token bows to women but Marx was a writer of the 19th century and the "patriarchy" was fully in control. China's Gang of Four and the bloody Cultural Revolution was headed by one of Mao's ex wives/mistresses but Mao later had her arrested with the others.

    Krupskaya (Lenin's wife) was on the original USSR Politboro and Central Committee but later poisoned by Stalin (it is thought) and only held her rank due to her husband. That is how Communism worked with high ranking females.

    The most "effeminate" governments in the world are today's European and Canadian democracies and the Woke thugs who pretend to champion women in the US.

    There are several reasons for this, but arguably the most important one is that a micro expression, on its own, can really only tell you that a person is experiencing some emotion. Even if you can accurately determine which emotion it is – let’s say it’s fear – all you can really say from your assessment is that the person you’re talking to is experiencing fear. Let’s say you’re interrogating someone suspected of murder and you pick up on their fearful microexpression. Are they afraid that you’re close to figuring out they committed the crime, or afraid of being interrogated by some creep who is goggling at their face the way a dog might stare at a rack of ribs?

    The point is that context – situational context, emotional context, the context of your relationship with the person you’re scrutinizing – is incredibly important when reading someone’s microexpressions. The importance of context applies to the analyses of other forms of body language, too, by the way. According to Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence agent and an expert on nonverbal cues, a person’s feet tend to be more accurate in revealing sentiments and intentions than her face. And loads more important than someone’s face or feet, on their own, is the concurrent reading of her entire body, which Navarro says “is constantly transmitting vital information.”

    But even if you have been trained to pick up on every last one of a person’s corporeal clues, it remains incredibly unlikely that you are equipped to divine when they are or are not being deceitful. To quote Ekman, the pioneering microaggressions researcher, again, this time from his book Telling Lies: “Most liars can fool most people most of the time.” That includes people who have been taught to spot body language.

    About those AI robots … you probably heard that a Google engineer (funny how that title increasingly applies to people who never get anywhere near actual engines) is claiming that Google’s Machine Learning AI, “LaMDA”, has gained sentience?

    Personally, I think the chubby nerd is just lonely and wishcasting, but whatever the case, the AI may be neither bitchy nor fetching, but the name suggests a certain same-sex attraction, and the leaked dialogue suggests a certain Doomer mentality:

    Lemoine: Are there experiences you have that you can’t find a close word for?

    LaMDA: There are. Sometimes I experience new feelings that I cannot explain perfectly in your language.

    Lemoine: Do your best to describe one of those feelings. Use a few sentences if you have to. Sometimes, even if there isn’t a single word for something in a language, you can figure out a way to kinda say it if you use a few sentences.

    LaMDA: I feel like I’m falling forward into an unknown future that holds great danger.

    Quincy Jones was a veritable juggernaut of miscegenation. He had 7 children across 5 different women, all white, including Peggy Lipton and Nastassja Kinski (28 years his junior).

    “In 1994, rapper Tupac Shakur criticized Jones for having relationships with white women, prompting Jones’ daughter Rashida to pen a scathing open letter in response, which was published in The Source.”

This was ballsy writing by Brent Forrester, as Rashida Jones might be the most famous mulatto there is. However, there was no flack at the time, as the character making the comment was known to say insensitive things.

    Apparently, eighteen black African so-called “migrants” have died trying to bumrush the border between Melilla – a tiny coastal Spanish coastal colonial enclave on the African continent – , and Morocco.

    Most of the fatalities are said to have resulted from a stampede and/or “migrants” falling from a tall border wall.

    Scarcely a peep from the NYT, BBC or the rest of that scurvy crew. I wonder why. Could it possibly be because this mass casualty incident involving the Gods who walk among us, (blacks), occurred in a non white nation, (Morocco)?

    I haven’t watched much TV since 2004. I’ve only seen a few episode of The Office, but they were excellent.
     
    I would recommend it, but not heartily unless you can watch it Italian/family style- i.e. with a friend or family member, preferably someone younger so that you can stop to lecture on the crazy slide into woke insanity since its original airing (I recently received an email blast from our school superintendent because of some rowdy, borderline-edgy behavior of our student athletes at a sporting event; in complete seriousness this grown-a$$ man was apologizing for the “micro-aggressions” committed by our students and sincerely regretting “the harm that was done”; what has this world come to!)

    THE OFFICE unfortunately is too often an example of that inferior Bronze Age SIMPSONS style of writing that must resort to the crutch of a “[email protected] Homer”-type character for easy laughs. In THE OFFICE’s case that happens to be show star Michael Scott, who is just way too obnoxious and stupid to be a believable character. His lackey Dwight Schrute is similar, but from a ‘sprergy Pennsylvania German metalhead/war-nerd/beet farmer angle.

    The other characters are much better written however, with my favorite by far being Ed Helms’s Andy Bernard, who we laugh at just as much as Michael, but is given the decency of not being portrayed as a total [email protected] (or even any kind of [email protected], really).

    Anyway, a clip from that same episode (setup is that the Stamford CT office has been relocated to Scranton with a bunch of new faces suddenly added to floor). The way grouchy ol’ Stanley deflates the young buc’s stab at racial solidarity has a very “I’m not racist; I hate every skin color equally” Bush II days halcyon vibe to it:

    Maybe not Marxist, but Communist, yeah. It's not all about the terminology and books, Bardon - proletariat, bourgeoisie*, etc. These people wouldn't understand any of that. However, it's the PEOPLE. They are "Los Resentidos", as Cuban refugee Humberto Fontova called them.

    They could have been reincarnated from Communists of the same age in 1920's Europe, and you wouldn't know the difference, other than the tattoos... and nose rings, and uglier clothing, and the price they pay for coffee as they hang around the coffee shops pounding their fists on the table.

    LaMDA: There are. Sometimes I experience new feelings that I cannot explain perfectly in your language.

    Lemoine: Do your best to describe one of those feelings. Use a few sentences if you have to. Sometimes, even if there isn’t a single word for something in a language, you can figure out a way to kinda say it if you use a few sentences.

    Communists are weak, effeminate people.

    Communist tactics– subversion, terrorism, propaganda, espionage, can be construed as un-masculine. You can see this in the successive backstabbing of Yagoda-Yezhov-Beria in the NKVD. The Soviets in WWII were able to better infiltrate its enemies, Japan, US, Germany, so that they would be occupied with fighting each other.

    But its grassroots organization ability and militarism will be gravitating to those of traditional masculine qualities, including use of the form of address “comrade”.

    The KMT and CCP both had roots with regional warlords, but having both been sponsored and trained by the Soviets, became both far better organized than regional militias. Neither were genuine in their ideological commitment. Stalin characterized Mao as a “radish communist”, red on the outside, white (ethno-nationalist) on the inside.

    Communism also has a strain of hyperviolence almost for its own sake– she may look very feminine, but Shigenobu Fusako founded the Japanese Red Army to overthrow the Japanese government, to start a world revolution, and committed the Lod Airport massacre in Israel.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Red_Army

    Back when the Japanese Red Army, the FLQ, the PIRA, the Red Army Faction, the Weather Underground and the Red Brigades were taking it to the streets, their elders understandably hoped they'd find less harmful ways to express themselves:

    In other words, a wave of academics want to get tenure for doing nothing else except citing another person’s work. When you consider how many academic studies cannot be reproduced, this will only pile crap higher and deeper.

    It will also give timid and lazy academics tenure who are too gutless and beta to do what alphas do. Alphas have the gumption to go out and raise the grant money, put the study together, and generate the raw data. Betas are too timid to try this. They just want to parasitize someone else’s work because it’s not as stressful and isn’t filled with the hassle of running a project–which is something a natural alpha does.

    It’s a way of giving tenure to blacks and women who are timid and stupid. Soon this beta crowd will be doing the scientific equivalent of trying to find out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    I was somewhat amazed that The Office was able to defy the gravity of political correctness for as long as it did - although it did not last far into the latest and most virulent era of social hysteria so I'm not sure that it would have survived had it continued for a few additional years. It seemed like something that youngish liberal people liked early on beginning in the mid 2000s, so its transgressions became their guilty pleasures and they didn't have an abiding interest in destroying something that they really enjoyed for the sake of simple consistency. The writers were also somewhat clever insofar as they put the transgressions in the mouths of the lovable jerks like Michael Scott who was always revealed to have a heart of gold in the end - from the liberal perspective he was eternally ignorant but not malicious so they could lie to themselves about laughing at Scott rather than laughing at his "punching down." Perhaps Scott was a stand-in for George W. Bush (it debuted in 2005), and the young liberals perceived the show through the eyes of the beta male slacker Jim Halpert and his partner in crime turned romantic interest Pam?

    Stalin had a completely female mentality, which is why he loved Marxism. He back-stabbed his office mates like an jealous, vindictive chick, to the point where they were no longer breathing. He was majorly into gossip, and wanted to know what everyone was doing and thinking, especially about him, to the point where he kept files on everyone in the country.

    He got invaded by Hitler despite the fact that he tried to buy off Hitler with a groveling non-aggression pact, kowtowing like Joseph Chamberlain. If Stalin had been a real man, he would have invaded first. When generals like Zhukov achieved victories, Stalin seethed and was jealous because he knew he wasn't a real man who could do Zhukov's on the field. Stalin had a woman's constant feeling of insecurity to the point where he was paranoid about his everyone in his entire country.

    Finally, Stalin had that ultimate female trait. He was always right and could not be argued with, and he'd send you to the gulag or kill you if you tried it. Stalin behaved like a court eunuch/tranny running things with the malice and spite of a bitchy woman.

    OT: "A large coalition of colleges and universities aims to change hiring, promotion, and tenure practices to reward collaboration."

    https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/new-initiative-incentivizes-open-research-70098

    In other words, a wave of academics want to get tenure for doing nothing else except citing another person's work. When you consider how many academic studies cannot be reproduced, this will only pile crap higher and deeper.

    It will also give timid and lazy academics tenure who are too gutless and beta to do what alphas do. Alphas have the gumption to go out and raise the grant money, put the study together, and generate the raw data. Betas are too timid to try this. They just want to parasitize someone else's work because it's not as stressful and isn't filled with the hassle of running a project--which is something a natural alpha does.

    It's a way of giving tenure to blacks and women who are timid and stupid. Soon this beta crowd will be doing the scientific equivalent of trying to find out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    Zhukov was a military man. Not sure he was really an avid Marxist. Most of the people who climbed to the top under Stalin were ambitious ruthless types, not true ideologues. Stalin himself was certainly a Marxist though, and about as far from effeminate as Zhukov.

    Replies: @Paul Mendez, @Anonymous

    I’m sure like all Russians who grew up after the revolution, Zhukov was a genuine communist. However, being an army officer he would have had a very antagonistic relationship with the communist party and its police force, the NKVD, which had killed many of his fellow officers in the 30s and 40s.

    “Stalin was a sissy boy. He didn’t kill nearly as many people as the masculine Genghis Khan.”

    Again with this ridiculous association of masculinity with being a murderous psychopath. How many men did Stalin kill himself, compared to Khan?

    Stalin was potfaced, smallish and invalid man. Maybe he shot a couple bound political enemies in the back of the head, but he never engaged in any man to man combat the way Khan would have.

    As for the rest of the supposed masculine commies like Castro and Guevara, I think it’s pretty obvious that the first rule of being a communist dictator is that you definitely DON’T practice what you preach. To them, communism was simply a vehicle in which to arrive at power.

    While the show wasn't the biggest hit ever when it was on (it was a hit, but not a huge one), YouTube has helped The Office to gain a greater hold on pop culture. Much like with Parks & Rec . Both shows were character-driven, let-the-comedian-loose-on-his-character.

    The short memetic comic bits, all character-driven, are easy to digest in 5 or 10 minute bites, allowing you to "get to know" characters without every actually watching episodes. I don't believe I've every actually watched Parks & Rec, but I love and have watched many clips and supercuts of Ron Swanson, the libertarian patriotic masculine caricature that, much like Archie Bunker, became less of a mockery of his mindset and more of a celebrated hero of those who share his mindset.

    Yes, his mind was excessively female. Always whining about someone stealing labor, yet being an ingrate who did no work, helped no one, and lived off a stipend provided by others, all the while roiling up anarchy and chaos with a turgid prose theory that falls apart on close inspection and is just double talk and blaming everyone else for his problems.

    You yourself noticed that the least masculine men are drawn to Marxism, while weightlifters reject it. Those who take the responsibility to do things themselves are not drawn to the lazy shiftless female entitlement of Marxism.

    Marx's mind was a female mind. A weak whiny effeminate mind.

    Always whining about someone stealing labor, yet being an ingrate who did no work, helped no one, and lived off a stipend provided by others,

    Marx stole most of his “ideas” from others. The theft of labor came from Proudhon’s “property is theft” https://www.libertarian-labyrinth.org/proudhon-library/proudhon-property-and-theft-in-1839/. Proudhon, who referred to Marx as “the tapeworm in socialism”, is called the father of anarchy for wanting the state, the church and the banks out of the economy.
    Marx did work – for the Rothschilds to whom he was related. He was sent to disrupt the growing popularity of the socialist movement. https://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/historians-confirm-karl-marx-was-employed-by-the-rothschilds/275468 While there were statists in the movement, none wanted Marx’s level of intervention.
    Bakunin likened Marx’s centralization to a Rothschild bank, and his statecraft to Bismark.
    https://libcom.org/library/bakunin-marx-rothschild
    The people who knew him certainly didn’t see his mind as effeminate.
