[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

Here’s a peek into Woke Capitalism. I shall tread carefully in this segment. I am working from inside information, and I don’t want anyone to lose his job for being associated with an outlet as hatefully hateful as VDARE.com.

The particular corner of capitalism featured in this story is the fine old financial-services firm of Goldman Sachs. You may recall Goldman Sachs signaling their virtue to the world back in in January when they announced that they’d only do business with firms that had at least one diverse board member, which I think means not a straight white male.

Well, a friend of mine is employed at Goldman Sachs, and he’s been passing stuff on to me: stuff like this, which I reproduce with my friend’s permission, some names redacted

It’s a memo that was prominently featured on the main page of the internal Goldman Sachs web site August 27th, for the edification of all employees. The title of the memo is: Why Language Can Be One of Our Biggest Allies at Goldman Sachs. The main text is over seven hundred words, too long for me to read out in its entirety, so I’ll just cherry-pick a few representative quotes, with links added.

I guess you could say that at least the competitive spirit of capitalism is visible there. Gotta be better than the next guy; gotta stay ahead of the market; hey, look—we did the capital-“B” thing two weeks before AP!

  • In Engineering, our colleagues…[have] collaborated with others in the financial services industry to address racially insensitive terminology in computer security terms. This work included eliminating the use of “blacklist” and “whitelist,” as well as of “master” and “slave,” when describing the relationship between hardware components.

Perhaps the use of those words “master” and “slave” in the computer department just get people thinking a bit too much about the power relation between the Indian project manager and his legacy-American subordinate who’s being kept on for three months to train his replacement, an H-1B also from India—in fact the project manager’s nephew.

  • Another example of a phrase that can have harmful impact is “All Lives Matter.”…The death of George Floyd, and, as recently as this week, the shooting of Jacob Blake multiple times in the back, demonstrate that until the deadly violent acts against unarmed Black people subside, all lives will not matter until Black Lives Matter.

You didn’t think we were going to get through this without a reference to the Holy Blessed Martyr Floyd, did you?

Although I’ll give a smidgen of credit here to Goldman Sachs: They merely wrote “the death of George Floyd.” It’s routine in Mainstream media outlets now to see “the killing of George Floyd,” or even “the murder of George Floyd.” The Economist, for example, has used both in straight reportage. It has of course not yet been established to any good evidentiary standard that Floyd was killed, let alone murdered.

  • It’s … not accurate to refer to someone’s “sexual preference,” which would imply a choice that can be changed, instead we refer to an individual’s “sexual orientation.”

That’s a bit hair-splitty, isn’t it? A bit dubious, actually. An orientation may be voluntary, mayn’t it? I can orient myself to the north, south, east, or west, according to my…preference.

Goldman Sachs doesn’t just rely on memos to keep its workforce up-to-date on the Party line. Conversations!—gotta have conversations. To give employees the right idea, the firm records the kind of conversations it wants them to have and puts them on YouTube so they can watch at home.

I’m not sure what the rule is for watching in office hours, but I’d guess it’s OK…ah, heck, probably compulsory.

Here’s a wee clip of one of those conversations from early June. The speaker here is Frederick Baba, a Managing Director in the Global Markets division of the firm. Mr. Baba is black. In fact he’s an immigrant from Nigeria, dragged here in chains across the Middle Passage as a youngster thirty years ago. Hearken to his pain:

I think for me personally and for a lot of the members of the black community here at Goldman Sachs, these things are just extremely difficult for us to process. And so you’ll be here trying to show up, trying to be your best work self, and then at times you don’t even know if it matters, right? You’re sitting in a Zoom call-in, you’re talking about the thing you’re talking about, you’re trying to service your clients, but then … There’s this backdrop and this, like, cloud hanging over you about all of the other things that are happening in the world, and you just don’t know if you really care about bonds at that moment in time.

A Goldman Executive Has Advice for His White Colleagues

Expressions of solidarity are appreciated—Here’s what I would appreciate more.

By Frederick Baba, Bloomberg News, June 4, 2020

That’s just a snippet. The thing drones on for half an hour. And yes, there’s another participant in the conversation; but he’s white, so of course he defers to Mr. Baba.

So there’s a glimpse into the heart of Woke Capitalism. It makes the point that this poisonous gibberish is now universal among our ruling elites. I mean, it makes the point because if a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs doesn’t belong to the ruling elite, nobody does.

It’s like this throughout the Establishment: Wall Street, Big Tech, Hollywood, the universities…this is the reigning ideology. White Supremacy and Systemic Racism are in the air we breathe, tormenting the soul even of a Wall Street MD on a high six-figure salary and a seven-figure annual bonus.

And no, I didn’t make those numbers up. In the matter of executive compensation, there is nothing niggardly (so to speak) about Goldman Sachs.

This is the reigning ideology. Yes, it’s crazy and stupid and bears no relation to any actual facts in the world. You’d better pretend to believe it, though. Bend the knee and bow the head, or you’ll get nowhere in life.

Certainly not at Goldman Sachs.

John Derbyshire [email him] writes an incredible amount on all sorts of subjects for all kinds of outlets. (This no longer includes National Review, whose editors had some kind of tantrum and fired him.) He is the author of We Are Doomed: Reclaiming Conservative Pessimism and several other books. He has had two books published by VDARE.com com: FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT (also available in Kindle) and FROM THE DISSIDENT RIGHT II: ESSAYS 2013.

    As opportunities for qualified Anglos are reduced, and they are systematically excluded from top colleges and executive positions in line with their position as social undesirables – there’s the question of what they’ll do.

    If Anglos were a non-integrating minority in the US (never held power), they would probably rub along rather like Blacks in the South or Jews in medieval Europe. They would do what they could with their socially inferior position. However this isn’t the case. Anglos built a country that was at one time the world leader in industry, technology, exports, with a society that was an inspiration for people around the world with its visible economic success and personal freedom.

    Taking something away is greatly different from never having had it in the first place, and would account for the present toxic environment. The driving force is an activist Jewish minority within America’s already small Jewish minority (i.e. very few people) with their paid collaborators. It’s not Blacks, Asians, Latinos who are organizing the media/academia blitz on Anglos and forcing society to comply.

    IOW it’s a Jewish activist coup, seeking absolute power, with the result that 2020 will likely be a very troubled election – maybe the one that finally terminates US democracy on some pretext or other.

  20. “There’s this backdrop and this, like, cloud hanging over you about all of the other things that are happening in the world, and you just don’t know if you really care about bonds at that moment in time.”

    According to Harvard theologian Paul Tillich, ontological anxiety of meaninglessness is part and parcel of the human condition. Unable to face and cope with the bottomless nature of anxiety, we convert it into doubt, which, unlike anxiety, has as its object something tangible; in this case, doubt of the worthiness and meaningfulness of one’s daily means of earning a living.

    Uneducated, and unable to process the underlying issue which elicits his anxiety, this ignorant man places the blame for his dis-ease upon a socially acceptable scapegoat–“white” whatever. The folks at Goldman, being equally uneducated–or uneducable–buy into and endorse this crap.

    Well, Angles were Germanic, and Saxons were so thoroughly Germanic in the sense of being un-Latinized, being anti-Hellenistic culture, that their tribal name became the moniker of all Germanic peoples on the Continent who remained pagan and/or who were violently against being civilized.

    While the problem is, obviously, at its worst in every way with the English (with the WASP), it is a larger problem of Germanic. Germanic culture run amok creates Dark Ages. Germanic culture tamed by historic Latin Christianity shines brightly and achieves great things worth achieving.

    These guys aren’t capitalists. They are thieves looting the nation. How much hard work and innovation is involved in importing H1-B labor? Banning the terms master and slave doesn’t change the reality that managers appropriating an ever greater share of profits for themselves reduces labor to a status even lower than a slave. A master at least had to make sure his slave could eat. Not so a modern CEO. He can just make an employee redundant and let that worker figure out where his next meal will come from.

  28. Whites are still the majority in this country. All they have to do is unite and fight back — if they have the will. But the question is Do they even know as a race they are being systematically persecuted? Is there such an awareness among them as a race? Is there a collective awareness, a force that might unite them? Do they even care? I am afraid that their ethnic privileges have so blinded them that they don’t even know that they belong to a distinct race called “white” and now they are attacked just for the color of their skin, but thanks to CRT and the relentless reeducation campaigns now they do. And that’s a good start: becoming racially conscious. Being white is not normal anymore, it has become a very heavy burden. Like the cross.

    Last year Alphabet Inc. (Google’s parent company) made $34 billion after provision for incomes taxes from revenues of $161 billion. As of December 31, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities amounted to $119 billion. During the same period figures for Facebook were $18, $70, and $54 (billions), respectively.

    A major study out of Rutgers refutes the FBI director’s claims that Antifa is not organized and points to the publicly available evidence that shows Antifa is an organized group/network:

    https://www.voanews.com/extremism-watch/anarchist-groups-tied-riots-4-us-cities?utm_source=iterable&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1532181_

    The NCRI researchers also identified several far-left militia groups and uncovered signs of coordination with rioters in several cities.

    They noted that on July 25, anarchist networks, using the hashtag #J25, “prepared, executed and propagandized” simultaneous rallies in more than 20 cities, leading to riots in four — Portland and Eugene, Oregon; Richmond, Virginia, and Seattle, Washington.

    Among the organizing networks was “Anonymous,” a digital hacker collective; the Youth Liberation Front, which describes itself as a “decentralized network of autonomous youth collectives dedicated to direct action toward total liberation;” and “It’s Going Down,” one of the largest online sources of anarchist news, according to the report.

    In Portland, the Youth Liberation Front’s Twitter feeds, cited in the report, directed “mob preparations” and provided tactical information.

    In Seattle, local anarchist Twitter feeds called for the sacking of a local police precinct, leading rioters to throw explosives and rocks at officers and laying siege to the station.

    “Courthouses and police precincts were targeted by agitators in each case,” the report said.

    It looks like DNC/Soros are throwing Antifa under the bus in preparation for the rapidly approaching election. My bet is that FBI will quickly adapt to the new party line.

    “As a firm, we made the decision to capitalize the “B” in Black consistently in all communications…on June 5, weeks before the Associated Press officially changed its writing style on June 19.”

    What can one infer from Goldman being ahead of AP?

    Derbyshire suggests:

    “I guess you could say that at least the competitive spirit of capitalism is visible there. Gotta be better than the next guy; gotta stay ahead of the market; hey, look—we did the capital-“B” thing two weeks before AP!”

    Well I guess that is one way to interpreting Goldman’s “B” before AP.

    When you use the term “US” you must be referring to the organization that is suppose to govern America and the Americans would occupy America, in accord to the powers, restrictions and bounded limits on the governor authorities found in the Bill of Rights (BoRs) upon which the validity of the constitution depends. There is a massive difference between America and the Americans that occupy America and the government that has allowed a few Oligarchs, to use the USA, to colonize America..

    I don’t think the Chinese care about eating your lunch, to them it is stale corrupt of purpose organization which has no values at all. It is you, it seems, who insist the Chinese could be forced to eat your lunch, when it fact the fat men behind the USA have already eating your breakfast, lunch and dinner. Blaming the Chinese for your governments own faults serves no useful purpose.

    It is important to understand that 84% of the assets on major stock exchanges are intangible, meaning they could only exist if some government (in this case USA), were to make a law that made hot air an intangible asset. Owning someone’s invention, art or writing can only happened if an armed nation state makes a law that says you can own what I invent, write or draw. The problem affecting Americans negatively is the USA, not China. If it were not for intangible assets (intangible properties are monopolies, they give the monopolist exclusive rights in someone’s invention, writing or drawing. <= which means the USA will prosecute anyone (any competitor user) who tries to use the invention, writing or drawing that has by rule of law been made into a monopoly), none of Americans great industrial and technical complex would ever have been removed from America and placed in China. The search for lower wages and the search for non union labor attached domestic America's businesses to remove them to foreign lands, and the USA by its laws and subsidies and grants made it very easy and highly profitable. At least blame the guilty party.
    Monopoly power did two big things: it allowed a few to become grossly more wealthy than the rest of the people and 2) it made it possible for the same few to use the USA to extract from America its industry, its technical and industrial know-how, and to take its bread and butter to a foreign land.

    The Chinese want to make money, expand their presence, and they want to evangelize their humanist philosophy to the world; the CCP (their government) is helping the adventurous Chinese to achieve that.. basic intention.. but I don't see any Chinese interest in eating anyone's lunch but there own.

    You my friend have tagged the wrong party, The Chinese are not hungry for breakfast, lunch or dinner, your lunch has already been consumed by the bandits who dictate to the USA and the USA has assisted the Oligarch bandits. .instead of facilitating the growth and prosperity to which all Americans aspire.

    The extreme political correctness we see noted in this article in workplaces like Goldman Sachs and many others makes it obvious to me that the enemy are getting desperate. Previously, they were able to enforce their diversity, affirmative action and anti-white bias in a very subtle way and with more effect. The election of Trump was a major blow to them and hundreds of smaller events have cascaded to make them start to panic as we can see with their all-or-nothing last-ditch efforts to throw off the inevitable. Like a dictator that’s still barely clinging to power and in his desperation is using all the powers at his disposal in the most extreme way to hang on. This is the behavior of the enemy in retreat. The workers from Goldman Sachs will wear their masks of obedience at work, but when they go to the bar after hours and get a little lubricated, they’ll use forbidden words, have forbidden thoughts and when they go home, the same. The death of Ginsburg is just another blow to their power and if Trump gets elected again, the ball will roll with more momentum. Trump may kiss the butt of Israel and may not be perfect, but if there’s one good thing about him, he doesn’t follow conventional rules and this inspires a confidence in millions of whites to do the same.

    It is not just whites, its everyone. America is a melting pot, discrimination is a problem, race is not a problem unless and until the USA makes race one. The USA is not a democracy; America is a democracy. Americans are the governed, the USA is the dictator. The oligarchs, including those corporations named above, are interested, with their propaganda of racial and political correctness, only to divide and fractionate Americans so the collective power of the masses cannot be directed at one person, one objective, or one goal vs< 51% against; leaves no one with the power to fix anything.

    The problem is a constitutional problem in need of a fix but those who are in power today will not fix it.. none of them including Trump would think for a moment of fixing what to them ain’t broke. =>

    Voting outcomes are determined, according to the constitution, in isolation. There are 425 house cells, each house cell entitles those voters who live in that house cell to one vote<=to elect one person, and only one person to the 425 member house of representatives. Hence the majority vote within your house cell (cell of your residence, called voting districts), as allowed, provided you are qualified by their rules to vote. The major votes from just that one house cell determines one, just one, member of the house of representatives. <=whatever the majority vote outcome in the house cell; only one person will be elected by that house cell majority; and only that house cell majority elected person will be that 1 member of the house of Representatives to represent the people in that voting district(house cell).
    Divide and Conquer Problem: There are 425 voting districts (house cells) so 425 separate house cell majorities exist, each elects one member to the house of Representatives.. meaning the house represents the local voting district, not the nation as a whole. In fact the people of USA governed America never get to vote for anyone in the house but the one from their home district house cell.

    There are 50 cells called States. In each of the State cells, voters are allowed to elect two Senators,, so for each state cell, 2 senators are elected state wide. but no person has any influence on the election of the 98 other senators from different senate cells, since there are in total 100 seats in the Senate that means you get to vote for who will be just 2% of the Senate. Explains why Senators not liked by a majority of Americans can stay in office.
    States are isolated cells<=there are 50 of them.. voters in any one state cell can vote two senators into or out of a seat in the 100 person Senate; but the voters can only vote in the state cell that contains the population of their home state. Hence no single group of voters, and for that matter, no single voter, has any say in the election of 98 senators. because 98 Senators get elected by majorities in a senate cell to which the voter does not belong (voters in one of the other 49 states elect all of the other 98 senators).
    The election for the President and VP is a false flag. No one can vote to elect either candidate running to be President or VP into or out of their highest level office in the land. These two executive level persons are elected by the electoral college; meaning the constitution does not allow (or trust) state or house cell voters to determine by election who is to be the president or the vice president.
    If the voters vote against imperfect Trump then is Trump not a dictator if he is appointed by the electoral college?

    Ah, pomposity!

    You got two fairly critical things wrong. There are 435 members of the House of Representatives, not 425 as you repeatedly said. Contrary to your big finish, the Constitution most certainly does provide for the selection of the President and/or Vice President by Congress, as happened in 1800, 1824, and 1836.

    Also you do not understand the Federal construction of the original Republic. Before the Constitution was amended, Senators were chosen by the States, not the Voters of the States. Now Senators are just super-Representatives with overly long terms.

    A few of us spoke up and I mentioned that it’s basically wrong to hold entire races/ethnic groups accountable for past crimes, as it amounts to Collective Punishment and brought up some historic examples of Collective Punishment: the Palestinians. I also decided I better say something to buffer any condemnation so I quickly added the Jews being collectively punished.

    Who knows, maybe I will be fired for not standing in front of my cam hitting myself for being such a racist and evil white person.

    At the end, the manager said “well this is was just about inclusion/diversity”, but it was NOT. Debby Irving talked about White men raping black women, the Black Wall Street massacre in Tulsa in 1921, and several other terrible things. So, it was NOT “just about diversity and inclusion” at work.

Africans, who’ve succeeded by being smart and working hard, know how to win and don’t accept advice from losers. It shouldn’t stop them from taking advantage of their privilege and lying about it.

    They aren’t the only ones who cry victim. Just think of Kamala Harris with her university professor mother and ancestry of half Hindu Indian, 3/8 slaver white and 1/8 black African. The reference to slaver white isn’t a dig at Whites; she’s genuinely descended from white slave owners.

    Is it even necessary to refer to the white woman politician who lied to get Cherokee privilege?

Like a dictator that’s still barely clinging to power and in his desperation is using all the powers at his disposal in the most extreme way to hang on. This is the behavior of the enemy in retreat.

    Agree that the election of Trump was a major shock and that there’s a look of desperation.

    The Jewish activist left used every means they had short of assassination to stop him – and they still failed. In fact the sheer volume of hate turned off the public and the MSM lost its credibility. There was also the factor the Trump was talking about the taboo subjects of immigration and American nationalism, and he could get his message across in a live debate against a weak opponent (Hillary Clinton).

    Their BLM/Antifa project is also failing. They no doubt had the idea that massive pre-election anti-Trump, Social Justice street demonstrations (hailed by the MSM as a struggle against white nationalists and their symbols) would sweep Biden/Harris into power. However, in reality it has backfired. The public can see BLM/Antifa violence everywhere, the MSM demonizing the police, and Democratic leftist mayors doing nothing – in other words a multitude of reasons not to vote Democratic.

    Then there’s the now the obvious fact that the US billionaire elite (no friends of the public) are funding the anarchy with 10’s millions of dollars in their usual pathetic financialized belief that money can get them anything. Here’s a few of the fleet of new buses they bought for the BLM anarchists:

    There’s also that rising awareness of deep state fakery. On 9/11, and for years afterwards, the acceptance of the official 9/11 Arab terrorist story was unquestioned with its justification for ME wars of aggression. However, a lot of conclusive technical evidence now shows that it was a false flag demolition with the complicity of their own government – which is highly dangerous for the neo-cons involved – since a majority of the public now no longer believe the government/NIST account.

    IMO when it’s clear that they’re going to lose the 2020 election – I can see them turning to violence to save their necks. They still have the MSM to spin for them + CIA/FBI Homeland Security armed groups to deploy after they declare a National Emergency. Also they have to preempt their many forced collaborators who will disappear/ try to abandon ship. These collaborators don’t have the option of climbing aboard a private jet and heading for a comfortable new life in New Zealand.

    Always the weapon our enemy: “feel about” anything, in united power with: “emotional reasoning”, desires, outcry, being emotional (“How dare you!” – power of that school skipper girl), tolerant, compessionate, sorry about, etc…
    Weapons what critical race theory use, BLM use, feminist use, liberals/ human right activist use, animal protectors/ climate alarmist use, and other enemies.

    While the proper question is:
    What do you think (about that matter)?

    [MORE]

    “maybe I will be fired for not standing in front of my cam hitting myself for being such a racist and evil white person.”

    When indoctrination which based on desires/ emotions face logic, logic lose always.
    So who uses logic to fight emotions lose, who wish to stay on the ground on political correctness lose, and who mildly oppose something lose/ overwhelmed.

    Our enemies lost reality and lost ground; used to “endure”/ face soft opposition, mild defenses.
    Nowdays the doctrine is: who not oppose racism is a racist, who denies to be racist is a racist. They face opposition which softened for such soft degree: “ooo I`m not.. Did`t wish to… Yes, but… I am not but wish to say… “I am tolerant, but this goes beyond…”

    Our enemies in growing cases can cite only newfound nonsenses, what they feel to be racist, misogynist, transphobia.
    So that determines: they get shocked and most likely lose when face the real ones.

    A short story:
    Once I did listen a very softcore national song, were nothing offensive in it – a girl sent me that.
    Some antifa or whatever scum started to barking in “how dare you” style, and their usual phrases. Said that song is nazi, and me too.
    “This song is not. But did you ever heard about xy band?”
    And started to cite one of my kind of song: an NSHC from the definitelly stronger tone subcategory.
    After the first stanza the guy became pale, shocked and paralized.
    After two paragraphs run.
    They not used to it.

    When the rioting – looting – arson mob cry about how tear gas such big police brutality:
    Just look after how BOPE does PACIFICATION in unrest/ crime infected areas/ districts.
    (If you wish to see action videos: off course do not use google/ youtube – but if prefer the softened version there is the film: Tropa de elite even that show more than yt videos.)
    And BOPE actually incredibly popular both in Brasil and worldwide. Off course not with liberal filth groups, but with residents.
    Portland for them should not fit for breakfast appetizer.

    People too used to be “civilised”.
    Rome was civilised, they claim, with so called culture, legalization, safety, comfort. etc… Became soft, weak, decadent.
    As a joke:
    What does a Roman Citizen do if offended?
    Think about call the cohortes urbanae/ prefect or hire a lawyer.
    What does a Saxon tribe member do if offended?
    Decide axe or sword in a second.

    So their dictionary are swearwords for me, like:
    “modern, developed, civilised, progressive, democratic, reform, peaceful” etc…

    That’s the one remaining scenario that hasn’t been discussed in any detail. It’s also the most likely scenario.

    The plan is supposedly to continue riots in major Democratic Cities, while using media disinformation to claim victory in the actual election until DoD steps in. Interesting plan.

    Precis: Urban areas cannot rule their hinterlands by force (including urban riots), and cannot use riots as a pretext to involve DoD because that would bankrupt the US, and DoD would be unable to deploy effectively. Further, hinterlands have a leader (Trump) and the cities do not (consider Portland mayor being threatened by Antifa).

    [MORE]

    Advantages:
    * Recently demonstrated ability to initiate riots in 48 of 50 largest US cities.
    * Urban populations will believe even the most unlikely propaganda if it supports the 1964 Civil Rights Act (CRA) and its narrative of evil white aggressors.
    * Media is already under control. No need to post troops in media offices.
    * About 200 senior DoD officers (Generals of various sorts) are Obama Era political promotions and might act in support of the plan.

    Disadvantages:
    * Trump election is fundamentally a revolt of the hinterlands (which have been squeezed dry by the CRA) against the large cities (which have received much of their income from the CRA and its supporting legislation and judicial interpretation). It is unlikely that the hinterlands would care about prolonged riots in the cities, nor would they be physically affected.
    * The desperation mentioned in the above posts by anon and Miro23 is real. However, it was not started by the revolt of the hinterlands, which could have been contained by merely ignoring Trump’s initiatives, putting him in a powerless bubble, and saying nothing about his supporters. The desperation was started by looming bankruptcy, and was apparent before Trump’s election. If the Fed cannot sell securities at a very low interest rate, the US Federal Government cannot meet payroll and similar short term obligations. It would be discredited, literally, as was the USSR’s government around 1990. The threat of bankruptcy has worsened during Trump’s Presidency, and IMHO is now a possibility if the US appears unstable.
    * A discredited Federal Government and rioting in the cities would call for a leader chosen by the hinterland, which would be relatively unaffected (no riots). The hinterlands have chosen Trump. Moreover, the hinterlands can enforce their preferences through their Governors. Worst case, the Governors could call a Constitutional Convention and then do what they pleased.
    * DoD would be unable to function given US bankruptcy, as it could not pay for goods and services. Local forces could switch to MREs, emergency generators, and the like, but large forces could not be moved around the US, as civil transport is required for such moves. Further DoD has, at the moment, no charismatic leader capable of serving as s symbol of national unity.
    * The Democrats have no charismatic leader capable observing as a symbol of national unity. Their charismatic leaders are all urban and strongly opposed to US national unity.
    * From the above, it appears likely that the Democrats would lose a serious attempt at a forced coup, and would quite possibly lose all political legitimacy.

    My preferred alternative is that the Democrats give up: let Trump rule, let the cities vanish, try to put something that supports itself from its own civil economy. Such events will happen no matter what anybody wants, me included. However, the Democrats are probably incapable of giving up, so we have a zombie party, just like in the architype of pulp fiction, staggering around, shedding body parts and hideously moaning, trying to eat brains, until sheer physical deterioration or a Zombie hunter brings it down.

    No, not if a majority of the cells chose Electors to vote for Trump.

    Well, I say an emphatic “No!” to that question. Why?
    Because EVERY fucking time blacks back then TRIED to BETTER themselves within their communities, SOME THING out of their CONTROL happens….

    Exhibit A: Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma

    Here we have a thriving enterprise that was created by blacks for blacks. But after the white World War 1 Vets came back home with unemployment running high, they see this thriving black community, get jealous, and well you know how that turns out when King Cold gets upstaged in his own country back in those perilous days (for black folk), right?

He is a cash and carry writer, a pamphleteer who has nothing worthy or memorable to write about. In a few decades, l give it two, no one will remember him or his works.

  92. It is hard to believe that Goldman Sachs will do anything that harms their bottom line – for example, firing a successful fund manager because of his unconscious racism.

    Until that happens, their wokeness is just a way to humiliate their junior employees and present a fashionable image to the outside world.

    Except, in real life, that’s not how it works. The “minority” rises not because of his competence, but despite his incompetence. They are, at least in every case I’m familiar with, promoted above their skill levels and abilities in order to satisfy some government or company mandate. I have never worked with a Negro who wasn’t in over his head, promoted only because of his skin color. That’s bad enough, but then companies believe it’s their responsibility to police the thoughts and private actions of their employees. It’s bizarro world out there, a new corporate ‘1984’ that can’t last. Between nepotism and affirmative action there’s too much dead weight at the top of these organizations and they will eventually fail. And it’s just plain wrong to discriminate against someone because they have Pale skin.
