Blinded by lies

 AC points out that the US "meritocracy" was always a lie:

It is amazing how a conglomeration of these little lies, slipped in below your awareness, almost subconsciously, blinded us completely. We would see pedophile rings, and idiots in power, and public graft, and organized riots, and rumors of a vast surveillance state, and the richest people who were all new billionaires that all got their money off a chance clever idea while no multi-generational old-money family starting with billions, ever stole their idea and their fortune before they ever made it, creating multi-generational dynasties with so much wealth they were undefeatable. We even see an eerie exact rerun of pre-WWII Germany. And we saw all of that, pointing to a shadow dictatorship just out of sight which was lying to us, and rerunning a global plan for world war. But what we believed was we lived in the freest country in the world with privacy, and the people in control of the government, and elections, and it could never really be taken from us. And in reality, we never had it to begin with.

But it is all falling apart now. The truth always breaks through eventually.

I left the USA in part because at the age of 20 I was given the opportunity to see, up close and personal, what sort of people were at the very heart of power in the USA. And they were not only mediocrities, they were corrupt to the bone, without an atom of truth or honesty or integrity in them. 

Perhaps the most accurate way to describe the present system of US government is wickedocracy, or if you prefer, iniquitocracy. Advancement within the system depends upon one's willingness to take the ticket, to sell one's soul, to render oneself a hostage to the rulers of the darkness of this world. This is why the establishment hates President Trump and Qanon with such a virulent passion. The President and the movement represent the first genuine threat to the wickedocracy in generations.

The solution to Iniquitocracy is for President Trump to dissolve the Senate, name whomever he wants to the Supreme Court, and Send I’m the Tanks!

Kakistocracy? Given the level of ratcheting nonsense I am hearing from people in my life, there is something to the idea of wickedness running scared. The narratives are running full blast into their heads.

Well, that's why many Bulgarians left and still leave Bulgaria. Though I guess most are economic migrants. In the USA you still have some democratic reflexes and democratic traditions left. You have hard times but you still have chances to overcome the anarchists.

I am afraid for the European Union. I feel like democracy is cancelled here with no chance to be recovered.

There are several lies many children are told.
Work hard, be competent, and you will be rewarded. Follow the rules to success. The people in authority actually abide by the rules of the organization (be it government, church, school, or business).

Basically, be nice because most people are nice.
That isn't Biblical. Even though most churches teach it.
Reality is different. The hardest moments I had as a young man were when I hit the wall of reality. When organizations I believed in turned out to not believe in their own goals. When I see the girl who sleeps around and can suck the chrome off a trailer hitch get the promotion while delegating the actual work to those who report to her. When a manager said "You are to good at your job, and therefore a threat to me. Find some place else to work".

All were rather world view shattering.

I was fortunate though that reality hit me early on, and I was able to adjust enough to learn the game. For it is a game.

If you're not part of the "elite", you will probably never be.
All the bad behavior you were told won't work to get ahead, does work. Just at the cost of your soul.
Most people in management are not leaders.
Integrity is viewed as a defect. But lack of it will damn your soul.
The game is what we all have to play, but your aims do not have to be what everyone else's is.
People that climb the ladder are typically very careful to destroy the rungs they used.

You will never be disappointed if you expect the worst in people.

If I had once piece of advice to anyone who is starting out, it is to read two small pieces. The first is the Prince by Machiavelli, for that is how the world typically works. The second is the piece "Innering" by CS Lewis, for that is the price of the first.

The meritocracy is real to a point. A person who works hard and becomes an expert in their craft is rewarded for it... the part-time drug-addled gas station clark does not advance as fast as the journeyman millwright, or the region's top Toyota salesman. But in America today, the ride pretty much ends where you're making someone else money. After that, its who(m) you know and playing dirty. But isn't that how its always been?

Democracy is a principle and goal of The Communist Manifesto. the Manifesto is a short book, you should read it.

Democracy is a political system which the Founders of the USA were four square ( because Masons ) against. in the same way that our Constitution was written in direct exclusion of International Free Trade ... which is also another principle and goal of the Manifesto.

you have not yet even begun to pluck at the tissue of Lies in which you were inculcated when you were young.

6. Hristomir Ivanov September 19, 2020 1:58 PM
And democracy as one of the pillars of the USA.


the US Constitution guarantees a REPUBLIC.
Article IV, Section 4
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

and the same teachers who tell you that a Republic is just another word for Democracy are the same ones who tell you that National Socialism is "Right Wing".

Who cares about democracy? Democracy is part of the problem.

The SSH helps explain this - the single most defining characteristic of an Alpha/Sigma is the willingness to make a decision and live with the results. Everyone else, to one degree or another, would prefer not to be responsible for the decision, and at most would just like their opinion considered by whoever makes the decision. Democracy makes it look like the non-Alpha/Sigmas are just voicing their opinion, but they're really making decisions they are ill-equipped to make. Then everybody gets to stand around the smoking ruin of society pretending it was someone else's fault. It's a system for divorcing accountability from authority, which opens the door to the wicked and the corrupt, as they're the ones capable of seizing authority and dodging accountability.

"I always thought meritocracy as the kernel for democracy."

The two are antithetical. Meritocracy says you get to decide based on what you have done. Democracy says you get to decide because you consume air. The USA has never been based on democracy, that's just the (((swill))) sold to the vulnerable children.

"It was a free market system up to a point."

Free just means that either the master hasn't been decided yet, or you haven't been told who it is.

"People matter."

People are matter. Beyond that whether they matter or not is directly proportional to their resemblance to their Creator, in image, in deed, and in spirit. Some "people" don't matter.

"The second is the piece "Innering" by CS Lewis, for that is the price of the first."

This is an excellent suggestion. The first and most concise description of all the dynamics of ticket taking that I had found, with the sole exception of Satan taking Jesus up into a high place in the Scripture.

ostensibly, Liberalism and Conservatism are reactions to the fake meritocracy, and Libertarianism is the forthright endorsement of meritocracy
there are four types of Libertarians, pedophiles, those who defend pedophiles, those who pretend pedophiles don't exist, and those who think the government is irredeemably corrupt and will never stop protecting pedophiles

At this point you could argue any two things are antithetical and people would believe you. It's the articles anti-, un-, in-, re-, meta-, etc... creating the lack of meaning in our own languages. Communicating with these terms is like having your imagination bound by flies.

"Work hard, be competent, and you will be rewarded. Follow the rules to success. ... [but black pills &c.]"

I think you've got it wrong. High performing people do well, in particular over time. Competence comes in part from devotion to an activity. While there are setbacks for sure and the occasional off chick that rolls through, not quitting and powering through is an often sufficient response. Of course the battle axe woman is much worse to deal with than the looker (unless one gets tangled up with the latter and she's particularly vindictive and scorched earth oriented). These examples you've given sound like what low performers and excuse makers and Hollywood writers would say.

But no matter what, in good times or bad, income taxes for stupid and damaging expenditure will be siphoned off unrelentingly, at gunpoint.

What is a drug addled gas station clerk? It's not a pump jockey cum light mechanic because those don't materially exist anymore in the US due to wage interventions, some bad apples, and horrible fake news, except arguably in NJ or someplace where it's mandated for spillage concerns and "Jobs!" (and they don't offer to check oil or tires as SOP). Is it the guy behind bulletproof plexiglass at a publicly traded company store that is a cashier, inventory keeper, restocker, tea maker, driveway washer, towel reloader, bathroom cleaner, and keeper of the tally and if possible among all other activities license tag number of drive-offs? That drug addled guy? He's fighting above his weight.

The question to keep in mind about any "meritocracy" is, who is judging the merit?

The lie is that merit is some absolute divorced from human error. The truth is, it's whatever furthers the interests of the people passing judgement. Therefore, a meritocracy is only as good as it's elite, and represents a fragilista unstable equilibrium.

To be specific, in the US tech companies hire the diversity, including women, or sometimes the merely connected idiots, because powerful people and the DOJ force them to, and then need to find some place to put them where they won't wreck the place....So they are made low level supervisors over the actual productive workers, and sometimes promoted to being higher level supervisors...eventually, however, they will still wreck the place unless it is a government operation.....Seen it a million times in the last 45 years.

"What is a drug addled gas station clerk?"

Maybe he's thinking of the movie "Clerks." Which despite its alleged provenance and hipness is a lie, but one that served TPTB very successfully.

Other than that, "drug addled gas station clerk" sounds like one of the many anachronistic myths that haunt the easily propagandized minds of Boomers. Similar Boomer faves: "the union worker who can't be fired even though he murdered the foreman in broad daylight" and "the welfare queen who bought a brand-new Cadillac with food stamps." Falsehoods even when they were new in the 1950s-1980s.

That's Finkelthink. Just because they hate Trump that doesn't mean he's on your side. Also a smaller but significant faction of (((Them))) support Trump. He's not anti-establishment, just a different faction of the establishment.

They bring up QAnon because it's useful for discrediting real conspiracies like Pizzagate. They ban QAnon on Twitter because they want to ban Trump followers, but they can't do that outright - so instead they ban groups related to Trump.

In the US Constiatution, democracy is specifically prohibited at the federal and state level. We are a republic composed of republics, and most of those are composed of a republic of counties or parishes, with cities almost always using the republic form of government as well.

Quintus Curtius "Getting Your Mind Right"; listen from the beginning to 4:10. The Prince was a job application that failed. (QC holds Machiavelli's Discourses on Livy in higher regard.)

Evil really is dumb.

Resist the siren song of Hanlon's Razor, perhaps the single most useful deflective false aphorism at Evil's disposal. "We are stupid!" it hisses, tempting you into dropping your guard and smugly patting yourself on the back for being a smartboy. Is it any wonder that incompetence is the media's ubiquitous go-to explanation for all the rampaging mendacity in the world?

Being bound for hell does not preclude hyena cunning, and the "Thirteen Families" have been around for how long?

Useful-idiots are incompetent by definition, but they are replaceable cogs.

A Q-hinted behind-the-scenes covert-ops clean-up of the Deep State's dirty laundry (to include Pizzagate) is about the only logical explanation for its assets' overtly self-defeating behavior since 2017. The Deep State is not stupid (see above reply); what we're seeing today is the result of its fangs having been pulled, and its assets blackmailed into imploding. And it's not just inanities such as Pelosi and similar critters visiting salons and eateries during lockdown either. Thank about it: do you really think a calculating worm like Fauci enjoys being Trump's court-jester? Or that Bill Gates and the Davos crowd are going to blabber aloud the details of their Great Reset agenda?

re: "what is a drug addled gas station clerk"?

It could be many things, but I was thinking specifically of the 35yo anti-social tranny whose marketable skills did not rise above holding the coke I bought up to the barcode scanner and asking me if I want a receipt, who was working the Shell station counter at the corner of US 85 and ND 200 the day before yesterday. There's a whole mountain of meritocratic rungs that can be climbed from that position. Increasingly I find "do-you-want-a-receipt" workers have obvious mental health problems, either as a direct or indirect result of letting copious amounts of drugs into their lives and the resulting poor life decisions. That doesn't mean its every gas station clerk. But there are a lot of them. I had a step brother who was another one.
