The Snowglobe

Way back before the 2016 election really got started, I recall watching National Review’s David French learn on twitter what the word “cuckservative” meant. It was an amusing thing to watch as he went back and forth with some alt-right types. I could tell he was feeling like a cool kid picking up slang from the in-crowd on the playground. Then he realized that the “cuck” they were referring to was him. He then set off blocking half the internet. It was an amusing example of just how isolated these people are from us.

The chattering classes are supposed to be the interface between the Cloud People and the Dirt People. Before the explosion of mass media, the chattering skulls would go on the three Sunday chat shows to tell us what to think, while pretending to tell us what our rulers were thinking. Usually, these people had a column in one of the big city broadsheets or they were a “reporter” in Washington. This worked as the Dirt People had nothing against which to compare it and we never got to see these people outside of their roles.

Mass media has some unexpected consequences. For example, we get to learn much more about the commentariat. A super cuck like David French has put his whole life out on the internet, so he’s not fooling anyone. They say familiarity breeds contempt and the general hatred of the media is most likely due to the exposure that comes in the mass media age. That and their lies are much more easily exposed. When some popinjay goes on a rant about something, we can easily find where he said the opposite in the past.

Another result is the strange isolation of the media from the rest of us. Read biographies of old newspaper guys and one of the things that stands out is their working class lives. It was not just that they were the sons of toil, they remained in that world. In 1934, it was not weird for a big city newspaper reporter to live in the same building as a plumber or bus driver. Carl Bernstein never went to college but worked his way up from the copy boy at the Washington Star. Today, no newspaper in America would hire a guy like him.

This isolation has a another facet to it. The volume of media means the number of people thinking of themselves in that world is massive as well. Then there is the overlap between the academy, government and the media. When Obama took office, over 100 media members quit and went to work for the new administration. As the managerial state has grown and matured, it has absorbed the mass media with it. Look at the major chat shows and you often see people who have been in government, media and the academy.

These blurred lines mean the sense of community has grown. The people covering the Imperial Capital no longer see themselves as natural adversaries of the people they cover, unless those people are seen as a threat. The fawning over Obama by the press corp even embarrassed Obama. Contrast that with Trump, who is viewed as an outsider. The conspiracy to rig the last election by the CIA/FBI/DOJ has largely been ignored by the media, because they see the principles as their neighbors, allies and friends.

A more amusing reminder of this great divide between them and us was the heavy breathing last week about the so-called “intellectual dark web.” Someone from alt-right central casting, name Bari Weiss, wrote a piece declaring a group of old warhorses the new radicals of the internet. Like all women writers of her age, Mx Weis employs the autoethnographic style, popular with the womyn in gender studies. It’s mostly a feeble attempt to cast herself as edgy, because she knows people who think they are edgy.

That was the point though. This was not written for the broader audience, if it even exists for publications like the New York Times. It was written for people in the media. It was the sort of self-adulation you see on award shows. From the perspective of someone like Mx. Weis, Ben Shapiro is super-edgy. Anyone inside the managerial class, offering the slightest resistance to the prevailing orthodoxy, is a rebel. It’s not a lot different from the guys at prep school who cut class to smoke weed. To their peers, they are bad boys.

The old paleos were able to see the managerial state forming up. They were surprisingly prescient about what would happen to the politics of both liberalism and conservatism, as practiced thirty years ago. What they did not anticipate is the merging of corporate culture, multiculturalism and the mass media into the managerial state. They can’t be faulted for it, as no one could really anticipate how new technology would accelerate the growth and evolution of the American ruling class. In the 90’s, the smart people predicted the opposite.

The managerial class has achieved class consciousness. If you are working at the New York Times, the American Enterprise Institute or a government agency, you see the people in these roles as your colleagues. They are the people with whom you socialize and gossip. Their kids go to school with your kids. You live in the same exclusive neighborhoods. Not only are the people outside that world strangers, they vaguely feel like a threat, with their inability to vote correctly and complaints about diversity.

Unlike ruling classes of prior ages, this one is not entirely endogamous or closed off to outsiders. Like the Chinese imperial exam system, Dirt People with something on the ball can test into this world. But also like the exam system, the American managerial class is becoming immune from new ideas and innovation. What passes for creativity is simply neologism filled recitations of the one true faith. If Jordan Peterson is your idea of a radical thinker, you’re living in an intellectual waste land. A world where Bari Weiss makes sense.

Ben Shapiro, edgy? It is to laugh. Dark Web? He’s had his mug all over conventional media. Nothing mysterious about him. For a true shock, let Mx Weiss read John Q. Publius at Anatomically Correct Banana… if she can find a handy fainting couch.

And it’s not only the Anointed Commentariat who live in a parallel universe — they are just more numerous than the Cucktarians. The media’s licensed cucks have their own shared script, one which projects a vague tone of rebellion against the leftist status quo without challenging its premises. Cucktarians can be identified by their own brand of virtue signaling: “Democrats are the real racists”; “African Americans inhabit a dysfunctional culture because the welfare state plantation keeps them down”; “I don’t care whether immigrants are white, brown, purple, or polka dotted as long as they enter legally,” etc. With a few… Read more »

(((Ms. Weis))) I think her name alone says most of what needed to be said.
Regarding testing into that sphere, most of the actually intelligent and perceptive Dirt People really want nothing to do with those in the “intellectual” classes. They see right through them.

“Like the Chinese imperial exam system, Dirt People with something on the ball can test into this world.” The whole point of affirmative action its descendants is to entrench vagueness and subjectivity into selection systems. This is how you end up with the current wave of nepotism and favoritism going on in professional and post graduate schools.

Not sure what you’re looking for, but it’s pretty obvious that unofficial AA is taking place, despite what laws states pass. Universities consider themselves above the law, and AA basically serves as cover for underground nepotism, and exchanges of favors.

I have not seen any conversations take place, if that’s what you’re asking. However, certain patterns indicate what must be going on.

Diseases are diagnosed by the behavior that you can see. They don’t announce themselves like arrivals at a ball.

I buy into the theory that Bari Weiss was trying to funnel young white men away from the alt right and to these low-middlebrow bloggers and personalities. If they tried to make Ben Shapiro edgy, then that might work in getting them away from actual dissident right writers. The positive is that the overton window is shifting enough to where even they have to admit that the NRO or The Weekly Standard is no longer the avant garde of right wing discussion.

Well then who is a radical enough thinker, Z Man? Sailer? Jared Taylor? The Derb? Mike Enoch? Ted “Vox Day” Beale? Yourself? It seems to me that many alt-righters have their own form of political correctness and those who don’t meet it are to be dismissed as cucks. You could call them gateway drugs but people like Dave Rubin and Jordan Peterson are helping many people question the assumptions of our “Cathedral”, or “Synagogue” for the Jew-obsessed. But for those who insist on ideological purity it’s not good enough.

Say what you will about Trump but ultimately he is buying us 4-8 years of time. Whoever will take his place, Republican or Democrat, is going to pick up right where Obama left off. The decline is going to accelerate and when the government can’t afford to fund social programs for the coalition of the ascendant, that is where things are going to get very interesting.

Stumbled into an early 2016 piece about the impoverishment process of Venezuela, then well underway, authored by Joel Hirst. Fascinating to me was the series of comments, repeated by the dozens, “there goes us in a few years”. No thought of how to fight back, or of any alternative ending. Trump, mostly singlehandly, has offered up some time, and also some sort of vague template, for fighting back.

It is an interesting point though. Why not address it? First, we don’t need ‘radicals’. Vox Day is a radical and he alienates the hell out 75% of the people he interacts with. Of the remaining 25% – they laugh at him. Ditto for the other grandstanding performance artists and hucksters that are out to sell their books or themselves.

Not only are they incapable of performing their basic functions. They are threatened by those of us who can perform ours. They will push things over the side to protect themselves from us.

I’d be surprised if a global depression of 1930s magnitude isn’t in the offing in the intermediate future. But even if that doesn’t happen, greedy Western elites have handed so much economic and potential geopolitical power to the Chinese that it’s hard to imagine that the Chinese won’t soon be cracking the whip. Our elites may escape with their booty relatively unscathed, but, then again, they may not.

The common denominator of the media, academia, and bureaucratic elite is a parasitic dependence on a productive host for sustenance and survival. These people simply could not have survived in the environment of our ancestral evolution, in which basic fitness was a life or death matter. These people are, at best, dead-weight and, at worse, a degenerative disease that is killing our robustness.

Looking like either the FBI or CIA – or both – started a “whisper campaign” against Papadapolous and Page by getting these two British professors to whisper in their ears about the Russians and the emails. A few months later, those two guys mention Russia/emails to other people, and those later meetings are used as evidence justifying wire taps and spying on the Trump campaign.

Maybe Halper’s approach to Carter Page — at an event in Cambridge a couple of days after Page’s Moscow speeches, and almost 3 weeks before the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane operation was authorized — was him trying to earn future payments on spec, but it seems more likely that the CIA sicced one of their Cambridge assets on Page.
