The best take yet on the Tucker Carlson interview with Putin 🔗 1708100573  

The real reason for the migrant flood 🔗 1708091771  

It's not to create a huge Rent-A-Mob for the DNC, though I'm sure that's a nice side-effect come this winter. It's really about allowing DIE quotas in corporate to be adhered to. Replace the retiring boomers with immigrants and chop off the rungs of the ladder for young Americans. Corporate prefers having people they hold the sword of damocles over, keeps them from questioning the braindead decisions from management.

Erik Prince: Ackshually, colonialism is good 🔗 1708085439  

While he is correct that the Bantus probably will never govern themselves correctly, thinking that means we need to take back up the "white man's burden" is just as stupid as being woke. Who cares if the residents of some shithole country try to flood into this country? Just don't give the bums handouts and arrest them if they have neck tats or other signs of criminality. Seemed to work in Hell Salvador for Bukele. Problem solved without needing some dumbass foreign adventure to waste money on. Am Con is being retarded here by running this kind of pap, though the byline suggests the author is a britbong, so I can't be surprised by this.

Oh noes, the men are becoming more conservative 🔗

Look, it's real simple. Women are the recipients of huge subsidy by men both through taxes and the resultant transfer payments and voluntary contribution. Gals naturally want more of this, and vote for it in droves. Men increasingly see this as a bad deal. Liberal men would prefer a more egalitarian arrangement where women in fact walk their talk of being independent and equal. But the vast majority of men are suckered in by the false argument by conservatives that this deal used to work (hint: it has not within living memory. Conserve what?) The liberals are right here. The traditional family is dead and buried and not coming back. Single motherhood will be the norm, and men ought not be held liable and forced to parentally invest. Men will all be raised as defective women and everyone feels instead of thinks. Society regresses to the mean, and we all live like Indians. The end.

BONUS: Articles like this sum up why the right wins the hearts and minds of men in this case. Can you imagine anything even remotely this entertaining from the limp-wrists on the left? Maybe if they grew a sense of humor they'd have a chance.

Meanwhile in Japan: State-Run dating Apps 🔗 1707860375  

Surely the government wouldn't use knowledge of the people I hook up with against me right??? I find it fascinating that the commentary from Japanese themselves on it weren't along those lines; their propaganda really is great.

Bank Panopticon update 🔗 1707496419  

The "Turn-Key totalitarian" machine slowly comes online. People will be truly shocked when it absolutely roars to life and no one, no where is safe.

On Wang Huning 🔗 1707494954  

Wang elaborated on these ideas in a 1988 essay, “The Structure of China’s Changing Political Culture,” which would become one of his most cited works. In it, he argued that the CCP must urgently consider how society’s “software” (culture, values, attitudes) shapes political destiny as much as its “hardware” (economics, systems, institutions). While seemingly a straightforward idea, this was notably a daring break from the materialism of orthodox Marxism.
Of course, it's all about mental models, and always has been. When people install defective ones, bad outcomes happen. Orthodoxy (right-thinking) is the only way to lead to Orthopraxy (right-doing). Ironic that the CCP got political tutelage pilled; no wonder the KMT sorta kissed and made up in the latter day.
Meanwhile, he believed that the modernization of “Socialism with Chinese characteristics” was effectively leaving China without any real cultural direction at all. “There are no core values in China’s most recent structure,” he warned. This could serve only to dissolve societal and political cohesion.
Of course this is bad, the default mode of humanity is to do as little work as possible to maximize the time you can devote to being totally awful to one another.
“The real cell of society in the United States is the individual,” he finds. This is so because the cell most foundational (per Aristotle) to society, “the family, has disintegrated.” Meanwhile, in the American system, “everything has a dual nature, and the glamour of high commodification abounds. Human flesh, sex, knowledge, politics, power, and law can all become the target of commodification.” This “commodification, in many ways, corrupts society and leads to a number of serious social problems.” In the end, “the American economic system has created human loneliness” as its foremost product, along with spectacular inequality. As a result, “nihilism has become the American way, which is a fatal shock to cultural development and the American spirit.”
This is basically how Jhayant Bhandari describes India; every man for himself.

In any case, Wang's Self-Strengthening movement 2.0 will likely fail for the same reason it did during the late Qing period. Like the Indians, they too are mired in the exact problem he sees in the USA, but worse and for many more generations.
Despite all his and Xi’s success in draconian suppression of political liberalism, many of the same problems Wang observed in America have nonetheless emerged to ravage China over the last decade as the country progressively embraced a more neoliberal capitalist economic model.
Rapid social mobility as enabled by extreme economic growth will necessarily upend the sexual marketplace, which is the ultimate driver here: "What's the script I as Joe Blow have to follow for good happy success and reproduction???" There is no such script, and can be no such script so long as there is such rapid change. Things have to work themselves into a new equilibrium of functional mental models before the situation improves.

Gang Weed Conservatism update 🔗 1707494336  

While I still don't agree that this brand of "right wing authoritarian" potentially represented by Thiel, et. al is in any way shape or form "good for you," it is interesting to see both that Trump may have been successfully compromised by this faction via Ramaswamy (and that some other high profile tech billionaires seem to be joining this faction now).

Kingpilled still hasn't quite put all the pieces together yet however. Tesla's role in this isn't about semiconductors, but about the lithium batteries, and is an excellent cover for a covert fusion bomb program, which doevetails nicely with the launch vehicle and satellite network operated by Musk. A take over by this faction won't look like the kind of RW autoritarianism that they want, but more like the oligarchy of the La Le Leu Le Lo, brave new world style.

Axis of Resistance forces dunking US forces 🔗

Fancy CIWS installations that can shoot down two objects before requiring a complicated multiple minute reload are basically useless versus drone swarms or even large rocket salvos. This is also assuming that the readiness reports weren't fully falsified and the CIWS were broken or unloaded, as the outpost in Jordan hit likely did not expect any action. Both the Army's extreme level of corrupt practices and braindead doctrine will get a lot of boys killed if this nonsense escalates into a full blown war with Iran.

On the true origin of the Jews 🔗 1706637742  

The "Hannibal's Revenge" argument seems the most convincing. The Phonecians/Carthaginians dumping Molech for Yaweh makes a lot of sense, especially given where the big Jewish revolts in the Roman Empire happened (mostly north africa).

Navy now trolling for dropouts 🔗 1706637572  

MacNamara's Morons part II. Just go straight to child soldiers and admit the DC ghouls are no better than african warlords.

War college morons think the not war is an abyssinian war analogue 🔗 1706637390  

In reality it was the US invasion of Libya, Iraq et al that made a mockery of the bogus organization that is the UN. Similarly, the big steaming dump DC just took on the ICJ just underlines and bolds this.

Poland also going ham on totalitarian neoliberalism 🔗 1706547240  

The dog on Brussels' leash bites.

Taibbi: going to be a bad election 🔗 1706287223  

Given this chicanery is all the admitted plan of the DNC, there's basically 0 chance the outcome will be considered legitimate. The clear messaging that they're willing to go all the way to "color revolution" tells you all you need to know. All I can say is I wish they did this with Clinton, "Slicktatorship" has a better ring to it.

More foundational advances in the understanding of life 🔗 1706209870  

The stuff coming out of these labs is great. It's wonderful to see people finally realize that any system's data is as important as the system itself; the cross-pollination of the programming field with others is why I keep telling people it's so much more useful as a superpower in other jobs.

B asks "Why do this when your very reply suggests it is not logical" 🔗

The answer to "why" is the same as ever. As for the president, his primary concern is "not looking weak" and avoiding accusations of doing nothing in response to the Houthi attacks. Whether or not the actions are militarily useful or merely killing people for little, if any, gain is of no concern (as is the cost to the taxpayer of doing so). So long as campaign money keeps flowing in from those the president seeks to curry favor with, it is "money well spent" as far as a president is concerned. As to why the US armed forces and Navy go along with this, it is also the same as ever -- the mission of the army, navy and air force is to justify their budget. Wasting money like this aligns perfectly with these goals.

People like to over-complicate it, as that's at least not as depressing to contemplate. I did like the simplicity of the commenter who suggested they needed more sacrifices to satan, however. "They are just evil" corresponds well to the "Grug -> Midwit -> Wizard" meme template.

Peaceful Korean reunification officially dead 🔗 1705518849  

"Mission Accomplished" as far as the tidewater creeps are concerned. I guess we get to see a bunch of Koreans turn each other into hamburger with tube artillery soon too.

SCOTUS to hear case on vagrant immunity 🔗 1705357585  

If anything, it will be but temporary relief. Remember, the current circuit courts are but the next generation to be SCOTUS after all.

Elite crime tolerance and the bum explosion 🔗 1705263754  

When gangsters run your country, of course they'll legalize their activities and promulgate ideology to justify it to the victims. The "If I'm victimized, it's my fault for being a schmuck" attitude is quite common now, and far inferior to the very simple "you loot, I shoot".

The mitochondrial role in aging 🔗 1705093647  

Germline cells in the gametes are what sends (or fails to send) the signal for to cells to repair without growing uncontrollably; similarly to allow the lifeform to die when it has lost reproductive viability.
