When Fukushima comes up I find it useful to point out that the Tsunami/Earthquake moved Japan's main island 8 feet closer to the US -- that is the level of power/destruction involved.

Did anyone notice that the Super Bowl Patriots refusing to visit the white house are not white. It really will be the whitest NFL team when it shows up.

The Japanese were given a choice a nuclear meltdown after a Tsunami or 100 moslem refusegees.

NaNoWriMo? Wow.

Even constantly keeping Conquest's 2nd Law of Politics in mind ("Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.") and having read SJWs Always Lie, I'm impressed at the utterly random institutions they manage to converge!

It's not all that surprising, they've done a *lot* on converging and engineering things to their favor -- the US judicial system is an excellent example, just look at how they selectively apply the law.

Speaking of fake news, did anybody read Curtis Yarvin's quoted comments to Rosie Gray in The Atlantic today? Yarvin claims Bronze Age Pervert is the leader of the alt-right ... I had to wipe the tears from my eyes from laughing.

Excellent Periscope today, your longest ever.

I have more free time than I did a few months ago, so it also convinced me to sign up as an editor for Infogalactic.

Not random HR departments practically have to be stuffed with SJWS. "We have to hire more squatlings and cat ladies" because we are too efficient. They even made a rule that the NFL has to consider at least one black for each coaching job, while the patriots picked up high quality white players at a discount. Remember Brady got picked at one less round of drafts than Mike Sam.

Stated that diversity is wonderful, with the slogan "stories know no borders", and encouraged folks to write about it.

All explained very well by executive director Grant Faulkner at this link;

OT... I've been thinking about when the left decided "verbal assault" equated to violent assault and used it to justify their actions of violence. I was reminded of the Geraldo Show with the Aryan Brother hood as guests, in which one of the racists calls one Roy Innis an "uncle Tom" he then goes on to choke the person with two hands and the powder keg erupts.
After the white supremacists leave the studio, Roy offers this justification " Hoolum types who believe they have the Constitutional right to VERBALLY ASSAULT... That's the word! VERBALLY ASSAULT people. I stand here today as a message to all hoodlums, I will not stand idly by and have them abuse me verbally. Assault me verbally."

Audience Applauds...

This was minutes after he had stood up and choked a person because he was hurt by what the person said (as legitimately racist as it was). This is how it starts, and I don't know if there can ever be any eventual outcome to free exchange of ALL ideas other than violence.

A judge(s)on 9th Circuit, separate from the 3 judge panel that ruled yesterday, this evening filed a sua sponte requesting the 9th Circuit reconsider the TravelBan en banc. Fancy way of saying that a judge or judges did not like the ruling and want it reconsidered before an 11 judge panel.

The Left/Globalists constantly pay for various controlled opposition such as Paul Ryan and John McCain to merely appear to be on the other side, but are really controlled by them. It's a major part of the playbook for the Left.

Blogger Shaman42 February 10, 2017 11:24 PM  

For those who commented about Jordan Peterson, his most relevant work is buried in his massive book Maps of Meaning. Basically, the parts of our culture that we are consciously aware of are the tip of the iceberg, and it's built on subconscious foundations dating far back into pre-history. When cultures mix, the subconscious parts undermine each other, resulting in serious anxiety and destabilized personalities:

Every society – every culture – provides protection from the unknown. The unknown itself is a dangerous thing, full of unpredictability and threat. Chaotic social relationships (destructured dominance hierarchies) create severe anxiety and dramatically heighten the potential for interpersonal conflict. Furthermore, the dissolution of culturally-determined goals renders individual life, identified with those goals, meaningless and unrewarding in instrinsic essence. It is neither reasonable nor possible to simply abandon a particular culture, which is a pattern of general adaptation, just because someone else comes along, who does things a different way, whose actions are predicated on different assumptions. It is no simple matter to rebuild social relationships in the wake of the introduction of new ideas. It is no straightforward process, furthermore, to give up a goal, a central unifying and motivating idea. Identification of an individual with a group means that individual psychological stability is staked on maintenance of group welfare. If the group founders suddenly, as a consequence of external circumstance or internal strife, the individual is laid bare to the world, his social context disappears, his reason for being vanishes, he is swallowed up by the unbearable unknown, and he cannot easily survive. Nietzsche states:
“In an age of disintegration that mixes races indiscriminately, human beings have in their bodies the heritage of multiple origins, that is, opposite, and often not merely opposite, drives and value standards that fight each other and rarely permit each other any rest. Such human beings of late cultures and refracted lights will on the average be weaker human beings: their most profound desire is that the war they are should come to an end.”

Blogger Shaman42 February 10, 2017 11:25 PM  

And a hint at what the globalists may be up to:

Of course, the unstated conclusion to Nietzsche’s observation is that the war typifying the person of “mixed-race” (mixed-culture, in more modern terminology) is the affectively-unpleasant precursor to the more thoroughly integrated individual, who has “won” the war. This “victor” – who has organized the currently warring diverse cultural standpoints into a hierarchy, integrated once more – will be stronger than his “uni-cultural” predecessor, as his behavior and values will be the consequence of the more diverse and broader ranging union of heretofore separate cultures. It is reasonable to presuppose that it was the “unconscious” consideration of the potentially positive outcome of such mixing that led Nietzsche to the revelation of the dawning future “superman.”

Finally:

It is not the mere existence of various previously-separated presuppositions in a single psyche that constitutes the post-contact victory, however. This means that the simplistic promotion of “cultural diversity” as panacea is likely to produce anomie, nihilism and conservative backlash. It is the moulding of these diverse beliefs into a single hierarchy, that is precondition for the peaceful admixture of all. This moulding can only be accomplished by war conducted between paradoxical elements, within the “post-contact” individual psyche. Such a war is so difficult – so emotionally upsetting and cognitively challenging – that the murder of the anomalous “other” in the morally-acceptable guise of war frequently seems a comforting alternative.

Fundamental threats can be posed very easily, between groups of people. Most concretely, foreign behaviors are threatening, unpredictable in particular, terrifying in general – because essential beliefs, challenging beliefs, are most convincingly expressed through actions:
He became to us a reproof of our thoughts; the very sight of him is a burden to us, because his manner of life is unlike that of others, and his ways are strange. (Wisdom 2:14-15 RSV)


This was written nearly 20 years ago. I don't know what he thinks now, and given his position I doubt he will speak on the subject.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft February 11, 2017 1:25 AM  

@24. Shaman42, I will address both your posts here.

There are myriad false axioms at play here.

#1: Evolution. Neitzsche straight up says that the results of multicultural mixture will be weaker human beings on average. The presupposition here is that the resulting war, by mixing people/ideas, will result in stronger people/ideas. This is retarded for several reasons:
A: Wars do not mix and combine different types of people, they separate and divide them.
B: That a stronger result could be produced even if mixture occured is based on the
supposition that the cultures are on approximately equal levels of quality. The cultures
ARE NOT on approximately equal levels, and in fact it is effectively impossible for them
to be so.
C: Like biological evolution, it is assumed that new useful information is magically coming
from somewhere, magically. In reality, in genetics there is no "new" information
whatsoever, and in ideology there are no new ideas either, only apparently different
expressions of old ones.
D: Even if wars mixed peoples, and the peoples were magically equal, and they magically had
truly new ideas, different ideologies have different foundations, different methods due to
those foundations, and different conclusions due to those foundations and methods. In
terms of combining organisms in an attempt to produce hybrid vigor, this is the equivalent
of trying to mix a penguin and a iguana into one animal, rather than trying to mix two
different types of wheat together. Scales will not freeze a penguin in its cold
environment, and feathers will cripple an iguana's capacity to even attempt a mating
display.

#2: Battle-tendency. Any magical merging of iguana and penguin with all the benefits and none of the downsides of both creatures will still result in a creature totally unrecognizable to both iguanas and penguins. Both iguanas and penguins will seek to exterminate the monstrous and
disturbing hybrid from the face of the Earth. In similar fashion, while the successful amalgam ideology might not see a reason to wage war against either of its component ideologies, both of its components will see it as an abomination that it is their viscera-given duty to destroy.

In short, if you mix steel and copper, you don't get a stronger steel, you get a weaker, more malleable one. Even steel is not as hard as iron, the only reason steel is more useful is because it is less brittle, not because it is stronger.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft February 11, 2017 1:25 AM  

So, now that we can say that your supposition of the globalist goal is almost certainly wrong, allow me to posit a new one:
A: Globalists openly say they want a population on earth of 500 million or (often much)
less.
B: Many leading globalists are confirmed power-addicts. Money and power are more or less
interchangeable here, to be sure.
C: Power structures become brittle the more "links" or "points-of-failure" they encompass.
The more people someone has power over, the more difficult it becomes to exert absolute
control over their slaves.
D: War, especially all-out genocidal war, is pretty much the most rapid method to get
populations down, although they have been pushing myriad other programs to reduce
population (abortion/pornography/birth control/fear-mongering/etc.), they grow impatient.
E: One of the best methods of producing war is by never-ending aggravation of the most
war-capable populations, who also tend to be the smartest and most principled, and thus
must be ultimately either destroyed or adulterated into a dumber, less principled, more
malleable metal.

The best part is the steps they themselves fail to realize!

F: Once they have their tiny population of adulterated slave-races firmly and permanently
under their control, they plan to live forever. Like all (psychopathic) utopians, they
believe that physical immortality is an eventual possibility. Little do they know that,
even barring accidental death or nihilistic suicide, they will inevitably either
"crystallize" or "degenerate" until they cease to be human (or really even, by the
scientific definition, "alive").
G: Satan wins! His ever-envied "little brother" the human race has been successfully
strangled to death in its crib! Surely God will bow to Satan once Satan shows that he's
more powerful by undoing what God has done! (Sarcasm)

In shorter terms, I don't feel or see any "severe anxiety" among the Alt-Right, quite the opposite.

And, Globalism is merely insanely addicted to old narratives and patterns that achieved power, and is just hoping it keeps working.

It's all just simply using victim status for various former "outsider groups" or Identity Politics to hold it all together, so there is nothing deep or profound, except it's end game is profoundly stupid.

Blogger Benjamin Kraft February 11, 2017 1:43 AM  

@33. tuberman, to be fair, the control-of-money-as-source-of-power thing has worked for them for something like 2,500 years or more, ever since the Persian empire. However, as they gradually keep developing sicker and more perverse ways to utilize that power, eventually it will destroy them utterly and erase them from history, in much the same way it's already eaten their souls from the inside out and is walking about partying while it wears their skin.

The shirt rocks and we can't forget Milo Swag too.

Never ever ref our family, kids or (pregnancies) even if they are young adults like 18 to 21, forget that, protect them; explain to them that social media, status seeking, attention seeking, people pleasing to endless compulsive communication is a drain from their growth and innocence.

Social media with our youth is not safe. Ages 0 to 20 something should never ever be mentioned or featured because the internet is too much exposure, too dangerous, too much stress on parents and harmful to the youth.

The 'superman' is not going to happen anyway so not worth further discussion. Peterson points out that removing the outsiders by real war is a simpler and more common solution.

The anxiety is with the SJWs.

Blogger Shaman42 February 11, 2017 3:08 AM  

@33 tuberman, it may seem illogical that SJWs are anxious about the invasion and support it too, but they aren't rational people. Desire for annihilation is a part of the human psyche that emerges in people who lack a stable personality. It's part the invasion, part 50 years of postmodernist education, and part the undermining of the Christian foundations of Western civilization in favor of an absolute materialist view. It takes courage to face up to reality and deal with it. They lack courage and seek their own destruction and ours.

Imho, the degeneration of the US is more akin to the mid to late republic than to the East Roman Empire.

In the republic the patricians had more say on when to declare war. Gained more from the spoils of war. While the Plebejans had to fight the wars and pay the cost of the wars. This created a trend of the Patricians owning more and more of the land. And the plebejans becoming propertyless. And the former lands of the plebs being worked by slaves captured in the wars rather than free citizens. This made an army of free citizen farmer soldiers fighting to protect what they had untenable. So the army instead turned into propertyless men fighting for plunder. This in turn made the political system of the Republic impossible.
