Affirmative Action is protection money

An astute article by Robert Weissberg points out the true purpose of affirmative action, while illustrating why it can't survive much longer:
When confronting a sizable, potentially disruptive population unable or unwilling to assimilate, a perfect solution is beyond reach. Choices are only among the lesser of evils and, to repeat, under current conditions, race-driven affirmative action is conceivably the best of the worst. A hard-headed realist would draw a parallel with how big city merchants survive by paying off the police, building and food inspectors, and the Mafia. Racial preferences are just one more item on the cost-of-doing business list–the Danegeld.

In effect, racial preferences in elite higher education (and beneficiaries includes students, professors and the diversity-managing administrators) separates the top 10% measured in cognitive ability from their more violent down market racial compatriots. While this manufactured caste-like arrangement hardly guarantees racial peace (as the black-on-white crime rate, demonstrates) but it pretty much dampens the possibility of more collective, well-organized related upheavals, the types of disturbances that truly terrify the white establishment. Better to have the handsomely paid Cornel West pontificating about white racism at Princeton where he is a full professor than fulminating at some Ghetto street corner. This status driven divide just reflects human nature. Why would a black Yalie on Wall Street socialize with the bro’s left behind in the Hood? This is the strategy of preventing a large-scale, organized rebellion by decapitating its potential leadership. Violence is now just Chicago or Baltimore-style gang-banger intra-racial mayhem or various lone-wolf criminal attacks on whites.

Co-optation is a staple in the political management repertoire. The Soviet Union adsorbed what they called the “leading edge” into the Party (anyone exceptionally accomplished, from chess grandmasters or world-class athletes) to widen the divide the dominant elite, i.e., the Party, and hoi polloi. Election systems can be organized to guarantee a modicum of power to a handful of potential disruptors and with this position comes ample material benefits (think Maxine Waters). Monarchies have similarly managed potential strife by bestowing honors and titles on commoners. It is no accident that many radicals are routinely accused of “selling out” by their former colleagues in arms. In most instances the accusation is true, and this is by design.
As John Derbyshire has noted, the USA is running out of young whites and Asians to sacrifice on the altar of Diversity. Average IQ is declining rapidly, and the value of the fake degrees being used to cut off the black populace from its natural leaders are falling even faster.

But then, this was always going to end one way, as Kipling warned us.

We never pay anyone Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!

“One moves swiftly and imperceptibly from a world in which affirmative action can’t be ended because its beneficiaries are too weak to a world in which it can’t be ended because its beneficiaries are too strong.”

They also did this to the 70s revolutionaries. They all ended up on some government payroll. It also makes them into pure hypocrites (which eventually eats away their zeal) and makes them dependent upon the beneficence of the political establishment.

But, as always, you eventually run out of other people's money.

That's an interesting way to explain the origins of black sin privilege, and makes perfect sense. Of course, it's just a band-aid, and will eventually fall of.

Interesting that school textbooks (Fake History) make it a point to avoid talking about the 60's race riots, and when they do, downplay their terror or the anti-white bloodlust at its heart.

Although the term Dane-geld refers to "taxes" to pay off the Viking invaders, there is something almost Freudian about the word "geld". Those who would rather buy off the invaders and the destroyers of their civilization than to fight them have a special affinity for being "geld"-ed.

Reminded me of the story of Joe Kennedy getting a stock tip from his shoe shine boy. If even the shoe shine boy is giving investment advice, time to SELL.

If college degrees are this trivial now, the end is near for higher ed.

The white left piled on and called him "racist" and he was driven from the race and then Rahm went on to beat the stooge "officially sanctioned minority."

Now Rahm is mayor, a stooge black woman is Cook county board president and blacks are left with anarchy. Another little known fact this type of black political anarchy was what Jim Jones called "Crazy Nigger."

Dane geld is a short-term game. How short depends entirely upon how much geld you have and how patient the Danes will be about receiving it. There are no rules when paying tribute. We would expect that our bullies will continue to only steal our lunch money, but that is by no means a certainty. They will eventually want us to hand over our piggy bank too, and our daughters, and our wives, and our houses. As it turns out, babies are a good place to get candy.

I have been waiting patiently for this country to run out of protection money. Not only will the tribute end, but they will want all the past tribute returned. Yes, it works like that.

Black first, everything else second is what it amounts to.

The key to this stuff, if it could be done, is to go after the blacks, not the SJW's. I believe it could be done if there was enough media control. The key to it would be to be covert. Endlessly display black disfunction and endlessly claim to be trying to fix it.

The danegeld payment came up at church today. My Catholic church bible reading was from Matthew 15:21 through 28.

My parish priest is apparently from India or South America (but he is India descent).

He started the sermon with "Jesus would be charged with libel(?) or arrested and accused of racism and bullying in Canada in this day, for saying what he said to the Canaanite woman".

I was thinking, how is he going to defend Canada with that starting sentence? Should I turn and look for anti-speech police at the door?

Here is part of Matthew 15 to get the context:

24 He [Jesus] answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

The [Canaanite] woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!”, she said.

26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs”.
--------

I think that is a useful argument for not paying a danegeld.

My parish priest ignored his starting sentence and continued with Canada and USA are immigrant nations (implying others are not such and can have different speech rules?) and then, in a mushy way, continued with faith is how everyone is welcomed into the universal (catholic) church, as the bible reading ends with Jesus letting her in by her faith (I guess he extends that, illogically, to the country of Canada welcoming everybody).

27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

28 Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.

(I think blocking the masses into our countries because they are not faith in Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is what I get from today, but my parish priest's sermon cannot say it. I do not know if he thought it.)

Blogger James August 20, 2017 11:51 AM  

Affirmative Action is just a logical step in the money lenders’ plan to enslave the entire world. Why? Because it increases debt. Most reasonable people would ask, “Why would our elected representatives do this to us?” The reason is because this world is on a treadmill and the only way to keep the treadmill running is to borrow more money into circulation. We can argue about the meaning of the term “money”, but when I say money, I mean legal tender. The elected representatives of our great grandfathers accepted a fool’s agreement to turn over the money creation of the United States to a group of private individuals, many of whom weren’t even residents of this country. Once you get on the debt treadmill, you can simulate the appearance of wealth by flooding the country with cheap paper. Well, today it is cheap electrons, but it’s the same difference. Of course, this form of inflation and asset devaluation has consequences, and the economy has to implement a “correction” to keep the treadmill going. Since economic cycles tend to run in a 70 to 80 year cycle (interestingly enough, about the time of the Jubilee in the Bible), there is no instant karma for this, and productive people can go decades without losing their shirts. Since the memory of the masses is ephemeral, most never make the connection and assume that economic boom and bust is the way of the world. And it is. It is the way of debt.

So, when politicians champion a war, a social program, or promote some kind of reform, they are just doing what they need to do to keep the fraudulent system going. If system failure happens on their watch, they will be twisting in the wind. Literally. Affirmative Action fulfills the need to borrow money into circulation. You have the wealth redistribution, the programs to “help” blacks economically, educationally, help them to finance homes, help them to move into White neighborhoods and White schools, etc. The goal is not to help blacks. Nobody in Washington cares about blacks. If we had purchased Pacific Islanders to pick our cotton, they would be the designated losers. The process of obtaining “equality” is an non-ending game that does one thing, Requires the treadmill to keep turning. Now, you can ask what the underlying goal of those that have rigged the game and there will be disagreement. But, the mechanism by which they achieve their goal is simple enough. My personal opinion is that this is just war carried on by other means, our enemies know this, and we have traitors that allow the parasite to live and prosper at the expense of the “Posterity”.

Well he didn't say it can't survive much longer. He said in the end that Asians can be bought off with free scholarships at lesser universities. I doubt that. In one comment at the article, it is also mentioned the white majority was also hurt from this AA policy. I think affirmative action will continue unless the Supreme Court rules it can't, but they're all over the map. Never making a final decision. Regardless, reality will mean the elite schools become less elite. Already happened to our law schools.

Affirmative Action operates much like our debt-(from nowhere)-money economic system. It functions to destroy capital by building vast industries that produce only waste, like establishing an ocean port in Montana.

We've witnessed the largest build-up of functionally make-work industry, and the largest creation of a vast open-air zoo for pet humans (who sit, watch Oprah, smoke weed, play video games and get on SSDI--which includes access to Medicare--and otherwise behave like animals in enclosures, dependent upon their LINK and subsidized everything, delivered by zoo keepers)...ever created by Man.

@ James, this is not a stable system. Debt has to grow, but eventually it simply can't.

Even if there's no limit to lending, borrowers reach saturation. This is part of the urge to import 3rd worlders; they're a new borrowing market, or else their political surrogates will borrow on their behalf.

The higher the debt climb, it doesn't change the level to which they'll fall when trust finally evaporates.

Trump's election is a big signal that the evaporation has already begun.

It all hangs together.

All of this exists b/c some people figured out that charging a commission for each act of robbery, as A robs B robs C robs D robs A ad infinitum, was THE path to unimaginable wealth & power.

It is not a stable system since the foundation is sand. But, the masses do not have the vision to see the evil that it is. When you look at the Roman Republic, you see the same pattern. Rome had to keep on conquering other countries to get the interest to pay of their debt. It became an Empire and continued the process. This process in the West lasted a millennium and even longer in the East. The foundation of the Bank of England was in 1694. For about 250 years, Britain was the most powerful nation in the world. Sure, it was bankrupt, but it was able to create the largest Empire the world had ever seen. And Great Britain still exists to this day although in a lesser form. It is still the center of the financial world because of its position at Greenwich Mean Time. The market in London is open before the Oriental markets close and is open when the American markets start the day. So, yeah, there are terrible economic climates throughout history. Countries go bankrupt and reform, always as a continuing debt entity. As long as the same people benefit and the host doesn't recognize their existence, the process goes on for centuries. Maybe we are at a cusp, like the Fall of Rome or the collapse of the Soviet Union. But, the process will continue until enough people realize what is happening. This is another reason for the social unrest we see. It keeps eyes off the man behind the curtain and fragments society into identity units.

There is a rhetorically powerful synonym for nationalism that really hasn't been used by the alternative right (or Trump for that matter): patriotism. Not only does it appeal to middle America, it triggers leftists and causes paroxysms of rage among Democrats because everyone (including them) knows that they have none. Libtardians hate it as well, but no one cares what they think. The Left will pretend to adopt it and the American flag with it, but it has never worked for them and they can't hold the Stars and Stripes for more than a few minutes before their badfeelz take over and they get all flammable with it. Some on the right have avoided it because cuckservatives like to use it, but it is a powerful tool to outgroup cuckservatives and cluckservatives alike.

This shouldn't surprise anyone, twin forces, a global labor glut and a shortage of jobs are in play

The former can be at least partially dealt with by closing the border and repatriating people but the later is a product of technology and its getting worse by the year

Hell there is a reason the Kellogg company had a 30 hour work week in the 1930's, it was efficient enough that there wasn't a need for a longer one. Human greed of course nixed that

Still the predictions of the future needing a lower work week were correct but political concerns overrid that and so all the make work

Affirmative Action is a jobs and promotion program for Democrat voters. Companies doing business with the government must have quotas both in ownership and staff. It is a money laundering scheme that gives tax payer money to companies controlled by Democrats. This allows these connected Democrats to take that money and give some of it back to the Democrat party. AA also causes all organizations to be come Democrat in culture. Universities, large and small companies, the general culture all become Democrat in culture. Does America still have the wealth to payoff the Democrat voter with this preferred job placement program?

Blogger dc.sunsets August 20, 2017 5:26 PM  

@47 It is impossible to have a shortage of work. There's ALWAYS something worthwhile to do.

A mismatch between work and people is always an artifact of intervention in the market. We have no idea what a future marketplace looks like, just as our ancestors had no clue what would happen when they were no longer needed to til the land.

For all we know, a future of robotics and automation sees most blacks really AS rap stars. We could all be largely "employed" entertaining each other.

This is what enrages me about those who throw opinions out like candy at a parade. No one knows. The only way to find out is to let the process play out and see what organically develops, while shooting anyone dead who attempts to coerce outcomes.

Sadly, this won't be how it plays out. We'll be "treated" to one (un)brilliant idea after another, just as was the case during the bloodiest decades of the 20th century.

Entertaining each other, producing nothing but rap?

I can see a future of "employment" taxes on robots, to replace the tax revenue lost.  They would still be cheaper than humans, not just as cheap as today.  Would this be sufficient to provide a livable Guaranteed Minimum Income?  I suspect not for a while.  And why would the producers produce for the benefit of an increasing fraction of total freeloaders?

The only way to find out is to let the process play out and see what organically develops, while shooting anyone dead who attempts to coerce outcomes.
We're going to have a lot of interventions along the way because allowing people to starve while things shake out is not one of the viable routes (unless you just intend to shoot people in lieu of laying them off).

Blogger dc.sunsets August 20, 2017 7:11 PM  

Question:
TO where does a Guaranteed Minimum Income lead? It's not difficult to imagine, given 1) experience with the dole and 2) a basic grasp of human nature.

Answer: The capable few extend their lead over everyone else via assortive mating. Those on the dole become dumber and dumber, but reproduce like rabbits. The Dole-Crowd is courted by the most cunning parasites of the Elite, to agitate for ever-rising Guaranteed Minimums, but this is simply part of the war between factions of the elite.

Within 10 generations those on the dole are exterminated by those who tire of carrying them. Once a large enough gulf exists between the classes, extermination becomes inevitable.

So, good luck with your robots and your GMI. But count me out.

Here's a thought: Sequences of Affirmative Action as "tolerance stacking" in engineering.

The "smarter" black kid excels in his HS because his peers are high or aspiring rap artists. This gets him a spot in a college for which he's ill prepared, if not simply outclassed. But the school nurses him through (no matter what.) He graduates. The next step in AA sees him hired to do a job even marginal graduates will fail at, and he was not even a marginal graduate. But the employer is a police force with a burning political need to field a black, and he looks GREAT on paper.

A few short years later, a blonde woman in her pajamas spooks him when she raps on the back of the patrol car, so he spends the next 8 seconds working his pistol out of the holster, hangs it in front of his partner's face and pulls the trigger without once assessing the reality of the threat to which he's drastically overreacting.

Welcome to AA as tolerance-stacking.

The conservative
and liberal views on what a racist is differ.

conservatives usually put low figures,
and liberals higher figures.


liberals like to accuse others of racism when you point out racial differences (racialism).

however, affirmative action (supported by libs) basically acknowledges that there are racial differences.

        Not protection money.  Imperialism.

        “Divide and Rule” said the Romans.  Incorporate the potential leaders of those you intend to rule into your hereditary upper class, and the vast majority will stay inert at the least.  And many will actively support you.  See this post by a black woman: Black Americans: The Organized Left's Expendable Shock Troops.

        People like Cornel West are not only NOT rabble-rousing in the ’hood, they’re telling blacks to support the people who actively keep them poor.  “Affirmative Action” is designed to sabotage its alleged goals.  Almost all who ‘benefit’ from it end up among people whose performance is clearly superior to their own, thus fostering feelings of inferiority, subtly communicating that it doesn't matter what the ‘beneficiary’ of AA does, they’ll always fail.  This is no accident.

        Without AA, there might still be separation, but the separate groups would have to be treated with some respect.  Really, viewed amorally, it's a marvelous system for oppressing both whites and minorities.

Re the costs and benefits of affirmative action: Lagriffedulion used to (probably still has) an article showing calculations concluding that AA costs whites close to 2 grand a year per white, and benefits blacks 6 grand per year per black. It's not a new study, so I suspect that the cost to whites has gone up per capita.

        It just hit me why ‘Antifa’ is calling Trump and the Republicans Nazis.  They're trying to relive the 1920s and early 1930s, when Stalin put Hitler in power!  The German Communists did this deliberately, because the important thing was to cripple the Social Democrats, who wouldn’t blindly obey Moscow.

        The ‘Antifa’ faction is determined to prevent the Democratic Party from moving towards the center, and away from explicit socialism.  Better the Republican branch of the Uniparty keep control forever.

        Suddenly, it all makes sense, in a weird and stupid way.

Pretty much. To them, anything that's not communism is fascism. So Trump is a fascist, but then so is everyone but them. I've seen antifa posters saying liberals die too. There's a video of a white antifa girl demanding that a white liberal man declare his hate for all whites, and when he doesn't do it quickly enough they attack him.

I'm reading that BLM gave them a beatdown in Dallas today; not sure what that was about. They're having a rough week.

Co-optation is a staple in the political management repertoire. The Soviet Union adsorbed what they called the “leading edge” into the Party (anyone exceptionally accomplished, from chess grandmasters or world-class athletes) to widen the divide the dominant elite, i.e., the Party, and hoi polloi.

Ironically enough, this is common in Africa. Blacks doing it to other blacks. Mobutu liked to do it. I also saw one case of Blacks doing it to Whites. Teodoro Obiang is corrupt, but definitely smart.

@ Elizabeth, I figure that under a GMI dysgenic system it would require no more than 4 generations to produce as full a realization of Idiocracy as today is a full realization of Nineteen Eighty-Four.

@64 Mr. Rational, Maybe, but I figure as long as the proletariat sends a large chunk of its most beautiful (Caucasian) young women to NYC, LA, London, etc. (all looking for The Big Time), the 0.01% will keep the proletariat chugging along to provide them their brothel workers.

Unfortunately, H.G. Wells was 100% wrong, however. As Idiocracy grows, so do the waistlines of its female members. Contrary to some men's viewpoints, a woman can be so stupid that no amount of beauty can compensate. (In point of fact, a discerning man laughs at the notion that beauty alone makes a woman desirable. Men who can't see beyond the shell will undoubtedly be swarming the sexbots when they hit the market.)

It seems to me that the only reason we began to pay the danegeld is because we were robbed of our moral legitimacy (demoralized) by equalitarian pseudoscience. Acceptance of equalitarianism was the necessary precondition and the one that still lies at the root of the impasse, which is why HBD is the most dangerous idea to the status quo.

And yup, HBD threatens to overturn the entire regime and turn its moral imperative into total illegitimacy.  Can't happen fast enough.

A mismatch between work and people is always an artifact of intervention in the market. We have no idea what a future marketplace looks like, just as our ancestors had no clue what would happen when they were no longer needed to til the land.

For all we know, a future of robotics and automation sees most blacks really AS rap stars. We could all be largely "employed" entertaining each other.

This is what enrages me about those who throw opinions out like candy at a parade. No one knows. The only way to find out is to let the process play out and see what organically develops, while shooting anyone dead who attempts to coerce outcomes.

Sadly, this won't be how it plays out. We'll be "treated" to one (un)brilliant idea after another, just as was the case during the bloodiest decades of the 20th century.


The market can be as stupid as the state and its own interventions create dangerous oscillations.

As far as work, yes true but the level of renumeration counts. If a person can't afford the basics of life (food, housing, clothes, etc) freeman's work is worse paid than slavery. This kind of arrangement is very common and is so exploitative Communism is a better options

There is a reason that nearly every society was some kind of welfare , regulations and most of them had wage and price controls at every level also. They had too in order for society to work in a stable fashion.

You can't do anything about the vicissitudes of nature but you can do something about people.

The industrial revolution seemed to give us a way out of that trap but its failing on some levels and between automation and rigged market, 1% of people got all the gains.

This isn't to change and is going to get worse and worse as computers get smarter

In the end, my guess is this will lead nowhere good but in the end, a welfare state is one of the nicer options when the value of labor drops too low.

And before anyone brings up private welfare, historically it was a failure when it was most needed. If it had been a smashing success, there would have been no Roosevelt or no need for The Great Society.

What have we accomplished, again, by subsidizing the riotous reproduction of IQ-55 Shaneequa and giving lifetime free rides and lifetimes of free shit to her seventeen IQ-55 crackbabies by fourteen different IQ-55 babydaddies, plus condemning two generations of working-class White men to second-class citizenship?
