You think there must be something else; but no, this is all there is. And this ugliness, too, is aped. Somewhere, right now, in a school or office near you, someone is being humiliated and destroyed, by small, cruel, thirsty souls, for the benefit of the people. Do you have a tear for them? Of course you don't. You can't feel anything but power.
PHD secrets to elite thinking right here. This is why ideology is irrelevant other than who gets run over by the machine.
The disadvantage is that, once this financial system can no longer hide systemic losses, it can no longer hide the reality that America loses half its GDP in red ink every year. Is it any wonder that if you drive across the country, you see a country bleeding to death; even before 2020? Well, that's exactly what you're looking at. Financially, anyway.
Why we can't actually go back to capitalism in a nutshell
Oh, so the gowned clowns wanna make it to where your programming language API/spec is copyrighted? Good luck having anyone ever use java after that, lol. Quite possibly the plaxico of the century even if short term it wins them shittons of money, as it would put the final nail in the coffin of non open-source software.
It is lulzy to think he is advocating somehow voting out these gangsters. Nevertheless, it's nice to see more people come close to the truth. It's worth noting how well he still is embodying these machiavellian ideals.
It's interesting to consider the possibility that the Mithric cult and Christianity both grew out of grifting exiles currying favor in the imperial bureaucracy. I'm starting to realize how much of our culture and beliefs on so many levels are actually cast-offs from simple self-interested clout chasing. Then, like now, the clerisy and what they believe is what actually matters in the end.
There never was one. The only proper way to deal with haters is to laugh and not take them seriously...which implies there was never any conversation to be had. Pete doesn't seem to get this yet.
That's essentially why this site has no comments. What's the point? If you actually care you'd reach out to me directly instead of leaving public clout chasing.
If you want to chase clout and beef, do it on Twitter where people care about that shit.
Nominal free trade, but still have to comply with the worst of their regs to sell goods; essentially the same predicament US firms have regarding California. Still better than the alternative, as you can sell "good enough" goods worldwide now.
Yarvin makes a point which summarizes his take on why the USA is incapable of dealing with a pandemic:
Whole worlds can be fake, yet carry on. Our world will carry on. Maybe we will forget, probably we will forget, the level of fakeness it showed us here. Probably we will even become completely inured to it. This is the way things work in the Third World, where no one but a stone cold fool takes the world seriously.
USA has always had a 3rd world government, because it is preferrable to the alternative -- e.g. Killer Government of the European variety that makes gulags and murders millions. 250k dead who already were on schedule to croak within the year is irrelevant. But Yarvin nevertheless prefers lockdown due to being a hypochondriac himself.
Nevertheless, the advice to not take shit seriously is a good takeaway. As always this is the answer thanks to the way emotional investment by elites work; they are only elite because you care.
Ultimately, the next twenty years should be devoted to plundering the country, especially its hydrocarbons, while the Lebanese will continue to blame scapegoats and ignore their real enemies. Already, the Israeli port of Haifa has partially replaced that of Beirut. Eventually, the country itself should be divided and the part south of the Litani River attached to Israel.
Deprived of its colonies, Phoenicia really can't work.
