The 420 To Boston

Even though spring is not in the air here in Lagos, the hints of it are, so I am feeling a bit more optimistic about things this week. I like winter, but I like spring and summer too. It is this weird in-between season that I don’t like very much. It’s not winter, but it is not spring either. As I type this I see frost on the car. Yesterday it was windy, cold and I saw some snow flurries. That said, Old Man Winter is on his way out, I can just feel it.

Even if you like winter, there is something about the change of seasons that brightens the mood. There’s a sense of anticipation about it. You have to wonder how this changed people over a thousand generations. Those who evolved in tropical climates never experienced the extremes of weather Eurasians experienced, nor the anticipation of the change of seasons. It has to have had some impact on our cognition.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. Of course, the Hitler Phones are so slow now, you may never finish. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.

Adaptation to a short growing season is the reason Europeans have had such success historically. Because it demands planning, organization, postponed gratification, discipline and many other behavioral traits to ensure survival, it confers a tremendous advantage over those from the long growing season. Yes, the Europeans do have a natural advantage. And it cannot be eliminated by political, legal or social pressure. It’s deep inside us, naturally.

I’d extrapolate that out to not just short growing season – but rather “living in an environment with crappy weather”. Living in a climate where there is a real winter (by that I mean things freeze up and there is snow on the ground for months at a time) – means you’ve got have discipline around a number of things. Most people who work in an office environment – have absolutely no clue as to how much the weather rules the day to day life of people who work outside. Even now in an age of dirt working equipment with… Read more »

Funny you mentioned girls of the Alt Right. They all fiddle with their hair and check their look in the camera constantly.

Roosh calls the alt-right girls “Tradthots.” (“Thot” is apparently slang for “Those hoes over there” or “That hoe over there.”) I’ve watched some Tara McCarthy and Laura Southern and half-expected them to say something like, “If you want to fight Cultural Marxism and watch me shower on my webcam, send payments to …” The only conservative woman I pay any attention to is Anne Coulter.

I like your analogy of deleting comment sections and the ruling class becoming more detached from the people they supposedly represent.

I don’t think anything will stop these cloud people, but it does occasionally backfire spectacularly. Watching Hillary barnstorm the Midwest and deep South in the 2016 primary season bragging about her gun control ideas had me bewildered. It was obvious she was trading general election votes for primary wins.

I would like to register a complaint with the management. I often have some tedious database stuff I have to fool with on Friday mornings and I have gotten into the habit of listening to the podcast while I do it to make the time much more pleasant. I couldn’t get anything done earlier this AM because the the later posting time.

Please send some Chik-Fil-A gift cards to make it up to me. $50 worth should do the trick.

Brilliant insight on the impact of social media on young women. I believe it to be directly tied to all kinds of problems, particularly the climbing suicide rate.

Haven’t listened yet, but Heartiste states that social media is porn for women. It stimulates their dopamine receptors in the same way visual porn stimulates men’s receptors.

Agree with the main theme Zman presents about comments sections. Totally get it. I just wish he’d tossed in at least a sentence of criticism about commenters themselves. Since there’s definitely two sides to the Site vs. Commenters conflict. It seems to me that even MSM/Liberal sites will tolerate all kinds of opinions as long as the comment is stated in a civilised manner. After all, we ARE on THEIR platform. Or in their “house” so to speak (especially if it’s a guy’s personal blog). I wouldn’t come on here disrespecting Zman in a foul way and expect him to… Read more »

I agree with manners, but I think conservatives tried that with the ‘reasonable debate’ position.

Nice try, but It doesn’t work.
Nothing works. They are right no matter what.

It’s like arguing with a drug warrior, their starting position is to flatly deny any negative results and double down. Their reflexive response is always to defend their authorities, their side. Like drug warriors they’ll invert or destroy the principles of capitalism, morality, law, and Constitutional government in a fantasy of the Final Triumph that never comes.

In other words, it’s an excuse, not a goal.

Assuming that your brother holds you in good esteem, how does he explain your heretical beliefs? (I guess that my family believes that I am a good man who nevertheless has a problem with selfishness that prevents me from surrendering my white male privilege.)

This became obvious to me when National Review dumped Disqus in favor of Facebook commenting. They dried up overnight, and those that stayed offered nothing worth reading.

Fakebook is gone. Now you have to subscribe to comment. Hardly anyone does.

Or you can go to the National Review channel on qwiket using Disqus. That’s free.

I didn’t realize how many sites have shut down their comments sections. It seems MSM doesn’t allow “all kinds of opinions”. Man I’m clueless.

This site provides a list of sites that shut down their comments section, and it’s from 2016. Already there were a lot back then. I’d like to see a current list. Bet it’s really long.

I think it was in the book “I-Disorder” that I read millenials and those who “grew up” with the internet while their brains were still forming actually have thinner myelin sheaths around their brains. Biofeedback tests showed that the nervous systems of young people would react to a “dislike” or a negative comment online the same way you would register being burnt by a hot cup of coffee. Kevin MacDonald and Lasha Darkmoon also did some interesting research into the effects of watching internet porn and the fact that it may actually cause a form of brain damage (changes in… Read more »

Off topic, but if you’re enjoying the James Comey Circus, then today he gave you a HUGE present: redacted memos about his meetings with Trump. Why are they a gift? 1) They’re totally illegal, and Comey inadvertently admits this. Why? Because he redacted them! The FBI/DOJ did not redact them. James Comey did 2) They’re Official Government Property. Comey was required, by law, to surrender these to the FBI on his last day. They are notes by the FBI Director dealing specifically with his official government duties. That means, in addition to theft of Government Property, he is also illegally… Read more »

“…and also for destroying government property (her email servers).”

What makes you think her email servers were government property?

Time for peaceful separation of blacks and whites. That is a very strong position. I am pretty sure that many whites fantasize about it. I just can’t see it happening, however. We’re too intertwined to make that sort of clean break. What I can see is disaggregation of the United States. That would provide an opportunity to give black nationalists what they want: A polity of their own. It would also give whites who prefer to not live among blacks the opportunity to choose the least black successor nations.

The only way that happens if we eradicate or cripple the cloud people. Things are the way they are because of the cloud people. They want and like the status quo, because they are isolated from it. The Muzzies aren’t blowing up the private schools for their spawn, they don’t have to live next to some Section 8 family of Orks, etc. If they did. We wouldn’t be in the situation we are in. Nothing but the modern equivalent of degenerate Roman nobility that had it’s head up it’s collective ass even as the Goths were at the gates of… Read more »

Like I said we either eradicate the cloud people or cripple them. There are no other options because they detest us and want us dead and gone. Look the cloud people are insane and evil. You can’t bargain with them or reach some middle-ground. For the last 40 years it’s been take, take, take from us. Jonathan Peterson has several youtube videos on these people and the way they think.These people are mortal enemies of Western Civ and the people who support it And he comes out and labels them predators and we cannot show weakness with them because it… Read more »

We might be able to goad blacks into separation using a psychological technique ironically put out there by a black man (Ralph Ellison) in “Invisible Man.” When blacks talk about separation, about having their own Wakanda, all their Hotep and afrocentrist claptrap about escaping us and returning to the Motherland, we need to vigorously agree (they’ll read it as fear) and make them think they’re maneuvering us into a position we wanted them in anyway. Let them think they have the ability to farm in former white colonies in Sub-Saharan Africa (after the white Afrikaners are safely somewhere like Australia).… Read more »

Aus is only looking at offering 10,000 visas per annum, which would still mean 10 years to evacuate all farmers and their families. And there will be continuous interference from leftist “human rights” organizations to get Indians/Coloureds/Non-ANC supporting blacks admitted under that quota. The average SA white (4 million) is still in the boiling pot. Ensconced in a middle class suburb, they still employ cheap underclass blacks as domestic workers. Most don’t want to lower their living standards, which is why there is only one Orania with a population of 1,500 instead of an Afrikaner volkstaat with a population of… Read more »

The chances of any significant number of them returning to Africa are vanishingly small. But there are a number of schemes for a black homeland in what is now the US (the Republic of New Afrika, for example). There are a number of possibilities and more than one could be tried. I have no idea how many of them would actually take the opportunity if it presented itself, but we could make a great effort to encourage them (perhaps playing down the fact that it would be a one-way trip).

In terms of speed of technological advancement, probably nothing matches the development of aircraft during the four years of WWI. Look at what they went in with, and what they came out with. Astonishing.

The intersection of two of this episode’s themes: The streaming service Twitch has had to implement a dress code for streamers. The early streamers were all either very good at competitive games or provided funny commentary. Eventually women started noticing the opportunity for attention and figured out they didn’t even need to be good or funny – they just needed low-cut shirts: https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/5540746/twitch-bikini-streamers-banned-dress-code/ There’s a similar dynamic with “unboxing” videos on youtube. Chicks shake their tits around while they open nerd memorabilia and sweaty spergs send them free stuff. The long-term influence of social media on young women is going… Read more »

I really enjoyed the segment on the Red Baron. It reminded me of the stories I’ve read about British and German tankers in Africa during WWII. When they disabled an enemy tank, they’d allow the crew to escape instead of machine gunning them. It was based on mutual respect, and no similar consideration was given on the Eastern Front.

You ever think about doing a regular history segment?
