Letters To Z Man

With what will be an extended weekend ahead of me, I decided to post the podcast early this week. That way, if you are stuck in traffic or waiting in an airport, you can pass the time listening to my soothing voice. Given that tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I will be slipping out early today for the long weekend, I figured I should close up shop for the week and get this up on Wednesday. I’m not sure if I will be posting anything over the weekend, but I often say that and end up posting things anyway. Still, the plan is to take a break.

I’ve also been feeling a bit guilty about letting the e-mail pile up. I’m getting more mail as the audience grows. Much of it actually comes from the podcast now. I think most readers will post a question on the site, but many listeners get the show through iTunes, Spotify and other platforms that now syndicate the podcast. The result is I’m getting more e-mail related to the podcast. I try to read all of it and respond, but I am woefully behind and often don’t get to it until weeks later. I have a very busy schedule these days.

What I decided to do a few months back is organize them into similar topics and then do a post answering the most common questions. Then it occurred to me that it could be a podcast, for a week when I want to do something light. There’s no better time for that than before a holiday. The topics are the common ones, but also ones I wanted to address for one reason or another. I get some interesting questions from time to time. A little artistic license has been employed to avoid outing anyone or offending anyone.

You’ll note that there is no table of contents. That’s because it is just one sixty minute segment this week. That means no explosions, for those who have complained about that in the past. Never let be said that I am not generous to my critics. I actually recorded this whole thing straight through with very little editing. I did have to take a break to get a drink or clear my throat, but otherwise it is one straight hour of me talking. That was a lot harder than I expected. Talking to yourself for an hour is not as easy as it sounds.

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. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below. I’m now on Spotify, so the millennials can tune in when not sobbing over white privilege and toxic masculinity.

as the father of three recent college graduates , I would like to put my $.02 in on the college major business. many community colleges offer Criminal justice and fire science associates that are loosely affiliated with the local community departments. They are a good way to get a leg up on getting into those fields. also if you child wants to do stem but is not able to do the calculus and diff.

Seconded. I taught college, all levels, for many years. Imagine being sent to Siberia for reeducation, except you pay the equivalent of a mortgage (in a nice neighborhood!) for it — **that’s** college. Community colleges are just as bad in nontechnical subjects, and even there you get the poz. If you’re not studying for a gotta-have-it-for-the-job certificate in a technical field, DO NOT GO TO COLLEGE. Don’t let your kids go to college. Don’t let your friends’ kids go to college. Commute to JuCo, pick up a cert in HVAC repair/installation or welding, and make $80/hr in a job that’s… Read more »

I agree with Severian (GW fan?). As far as dealing with overcoming the Calc hurdle…there are ways around that. The major problems: Precalc skills are iffy. (#1 problem) Most instructors are incompetent. Most HS Calc courses are the equivalent of reading the Cliff Notes version of Shakespeare. Solutions: Make sure you can do All precalc level problems without searching the text for example solutions. Do problems. Do problems. Do problems There are great online resources to supplement lousy instructors: Khan Academy Mathtutor DVDs (As an Intro the best) YouTube Calc courses (MIT, etc.) Use more than 1 Textbook (I recommend… Read more »

Agree wholeheartedly that most instructors suck. Badly.

I struggled mightily with it until I had an instructor teach the derivative as merely the equation for the slope of the line, and the integral merely the area under the curve. Light turned on and I was fine.

Just returned from Thanksgiving dinner with relatives. A friend of one came in. Drop dead gorgeous girl. We chatted for a few minutes. Ten minutes later, her black boyfriend came in. I quickly ate and left without a word and nary a glance at the coal burner. No, I didn’t have a good Thanksgiving. I still cherish freedom of association, even if many don’t.

You are so right that this is a glorious time for young men. Young men want adventure, activity and excitement and they are willing to risk their lives for it. Think about the Conquistadors or the Early Texas Rangers or the Comanches. None of these people wanted to settle into the safety and security of farming. This is a great time for young men they should be thankful

Speaking of letters: My comments about “restriction to using printed newsletters and postal money orders” may already have been exceeded. I am surprised at this, one would expect that the bureaucracy would just take the money and look the other way. A left wing court could easily uphold the same under the “obscenity laws” even without the passing of new legislation.

So you are thinking of escaping to a slightly freer state?

My son is graduating High School next spring. I’ll be readying myself for a serious job search that will involve an escape from New Jersey. I’ve had enough of this place. Pennsylvania and New Hampshire are my top two destination states although the job search could take us to a different red state.

Well, a very happy Thanksgiving to Z and his commenters and readers. Despite all the lunacy that besets us, there’s still plenty of things to be thankful for, and lots of ways we can consider ourselves blessed.

Maybe there’s still a sane, peaceful, rational way to unravel this mess and avoid mayhem. Here’s hoping somebody finds it.

I know you are unplugged – have you seen this commercial for Truvada? A product made specifically for perverts and degenerates. It runs a lot on some channels. I laughed the first time I saw it.

A drug that is about $90 per pill that you have to take everyday and can cause serious liver and kidney damage. A condom is more effective.

Amazing. One could avoid the $90 outlay by just avoiding putting ones pecker where it doesn’t belong. But then, I’m so old fashioned.

On the subject of the JQ, it’s important to acknowledge that the Jews require no special magical powers to infect and take over Western civilization. All that is required is weakness and corruption on the part of the White ruling elite. In order for us to purge the infection and de-Judaize our nation, we must understand the weapons which the Jews used to subvert us and exploit our weaknesses: usury, pornography, post-Modernism (all the cultural Marxism stuff), feminism, cultural warfare against traditional Christian morality, etc. We can only win if we understand the battlefield.

Regarding your despair for the future of democracy due to the idiocy and drunkeness of our elected representatives, I spent a few state legislative sessions as a lobbyist for my union (FOP) watching the third rate lawyers, used car salesmen, professional grievance mongers from the black districts, and other assorted jagoffs and thieves that passed for legislators in my state embarrassing themselves while away from home. Since those days I’ve often thought that the best way to achieve true political change in this country would be to require every registered voter to go watch how their elected officials comport themselves… Read more »

The lesson from Athens was that democracy kind of works okay for a big town (ancient Athens had maybe 40,000 citizens). As soon as they tried to scale it up over that into a nation or empire, it collapsed badly. The Founders were well educated and knew it. Most Americans are poorly educated and were only taught “Ancient Athens – Yea Democracy!” I grew up in a New England town were most decisions were made or at least approved in a town meeting. Stupid wasteful ideas get shot down fast and hard when they directly affect your property, your taxes,… Read more »

Almost nobody thinks they will suffer in any way if they approve of things that “sound nice”. I am to the point of making them suffer, even if it makes me suffer. I want immigrant families camping in every middle class and upper class front yard, defecating on their doorsteps and begging for stuff every time the people walk outside. It has become time for this sort of thing to start happening. I want hit-and-run accidents to become the norm, when people who don’t belong here run red lights and turn left from the right lane. I want lettuce borne… Read more »

The game now is to settle immigrant “refugees” in working class communities. The way to end this business? Trump should pick out the top five percent of zip codes in terms of income and decree that all refugees be settled there. Attitudes would change right smartly.

Jay Severin used to be conservative talk radio host on one of the local stations in the Boston area. Used to catch him occasionally on the drive home from work. One afternoon he was talking about politicians – and he gave examples of men he helped get elected to office. His way of illustrating the corruption in government – was to detail how an overweight used car salesman with a bad comb-over who wouldn’t get the time of day prior to the election – was suddenly divorcing his wife and shacking up with a young nubile chickie half his age… Read more »

>> I see an awful lot of talk among the alt-right and the dissident right about things like destiny being based on biology – well to me destiny is also based as surely on acceptance of big government – as it is on biology.

Acceptance of big government is also based on biology. Or perhaps stated more accurately, rejection of big government is based on biology. Acceptance of big government is the norm outside of a very limited slice of human biology.

Big government is very much a recent innovation
120 years ago and certainly prior to Lincolns war, the only interaction the average American had with the Federal Government was the Post Office.

Calsdad says our deepest problem is big government not our blindness to the tribalism of other races.

Do you deny that the socialist Scandinavian countries were great places to live before the immigrant invasion? How about Japan? Whites and Asians can often handle socialism just fine.

How far does your revulsion of redistribution go? Are you willing to watch old people die in the streets because they lost their savings or didn’t adequately prepare for retirement? Unless you answer “yes” you support redistribution.

Here’s an interesting take on how happy Scandinavians really were/are:

Brain dead? If so, maybe all the rapists they’ve let in will wake them up, like a jolt of electricity to the cerebral cortex. Or maybe they’ll lay down and be Islamic in 50 years. Then they can really stop thinking and enjoy their slave status.

All that stuff in the article could be applied to the U.S. Whites here are brain dead, passive to the point of being suicidal. About 1/3rd of Americans are on psychotropics of kind or another. Depression across the rust belt is leading to massive addiction and suicide problems. We have big pharma deliberately pumping massive quantities of Oxycontin into small towns across the U.S. Our middle class is dying off. We have no real safety net for whites unless you can fake a injury and get on SSDI. Our cities look like shit Full of modern architecture and strip malls… Read more »

I was a lobbyist for two years in CA. What you learn quickly in states with term limits is that the lobbyists and the more senior staff members run the show. In meetings, you address the pol but you pitch the message to the chief of staff. The pol watches uncomprehending as you horse trade amendments with staff. The committee hearings and floor votes are kabuki theater for the sheeple, where the pol acts out the preordained script. I concluded that war was a more honest means of politics (ala von Clausewitz) than legislative democracy.

You guys have a good Thanksgiving. If you’re giving the dinner prayer, especially in mixed company, do try and freshen the ending, such as, “And in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, please kill all liberals. Even the ones at this table. Amen.”

Member

You could add a little excitement to the meal with “and may the Liberals at the table enjoy the poisoned dishes that those of the true faith know to avoid.”

Then start off yourself with a simple small plate of something vile like the green bean casserole.

When I first started listening to the podcast the “explosion” seemed ridiculous. I thought, “I heard this was a serious guy, what’s with the action-thriller sound effect?” I thought he might be some far-right conspiracy goof. But it soon became obvious that he was in fact a heavyweight. So the juxtaposition of the over-the-top sound effect makes it funny ridiculous (or “high camp”, in prig-speak). It shows that he’s secure enough to be melodramatic. You think the BBC would risk the explosion segue? Would be great if NPR tried it. “We thank you for your time Professor Chomsky, KAABOOOOOSH.” I’ve… Read more »

On this Thanksgiving day, let us be thankful that our ships to safety are burning, that more of us may resolve to help the destruction of this grand experiment we call America along, until the day comes when we can finally kick it all into a ditch. Let us all remember that America is centrally responsible for this mixture of capitalism, democracy, cultural marxism, individualism, egalitarianism, consumerism, feminism, hedonism, universalism, selfishness, bourgeois values, and lumpenprole values that has destroyed the West, and will likely lead it to extermination. Let us remember that this System seeks to transform the entire world… Read more »

I posted this at Unz.

The front page of today’s Grauniad illustrates perfectly just how much the elites fear (and how slow they were to recognize ) “Popularism”.

The idea that the population should have opinions and influence on how their country is run is obviously anathema.

Good podcast. One item to note and that is that I believe that STEM is quickly, if not already, hitting its saturation point. I am a hiring manager for a big business and we get dozens of applications for entry level engineering positions. As late as five years ago, it was maybe a few. 5:1 odds versus 50:1 odds of getting hired like I’m seeing today. The market is doing well so it is probably absorbing most of them but there is a glut of STEM majors out there. Of course, my HR department gets angry if I pick a… Read more »

ZMan answered a question from a conservative who asked what Z’s principles are. Z dismissed him saying that the victors define the principles

To the conservatives that ask about principles: Generally speaking, only white people enquire into principles to guide/justify their actions. The majority of non-whites see the world in terms of racial spoils and principles never occur to them. Even high IQ Asians do not fret about principles, they just want their group to prevail.

This is the truth you must face. (Most) Non-whites want to overthrow you because you are white and that is non-negotiable.
