The Managerial Man

Every era produces men, who come to symbolize the age or at least some important aspect of the age. Otto von Bismarck, for example, is the embodiment of 19th century European empire building and national conservatism. Ronald Reagan was the full expression of the New Deal ideal that launched the American empire and reordered America in the 20th century. It was not an accident that he was the president to close the Cold War era and start the age of cosmopolitan globalism.

Similarly, a person can come to symbolize some movement or feature of a particular historical epoch. Ernest Hemingway, for example, is the face of the Lost Generation, the cohort of writers and artists who lived through the Great War as young people. Jean-Paul Sartre is what people think of when they hear about existentialism. Whether or not the person is the full embodiment of that movement is not important. They simply possess the important qualities associated with it.

What we may be seeing in the Democratic primary is the pushing aside of the old ideal that still rattles on in the form of Sanders and Biden. Both men are artifacts of the late New Deal period that came to a close in the 1980’s. Sanders still talks about politics as if most men work in factories and coal mines. Joe Biden is running like the friend of the working class, even though his party now hates the working class. These are men of the bygone era, not men of today.

They are being pushed aside by what may be the fullest expression managerial capitalism that accelerated into dominance forty years ago. Pete Buttigieg is both symbolic of his generation and of the class he inhabits. At 38, he is the quintessential millennial, having come of age at the turn of the century. He was 18 years old when everyone was wondering if the Y2K people were right. Of course, he is also a product of the managerial system that now runs society,

Like all managerial types, Buttigieg is a box ticker. He is not a man who actually does things in the world. Rather, he participates in things, gains a credential for having participated in them and uses the credential to advance his career. He was valedictorian of his high school and “won first prize in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum’s Profiles in Courage essay contest.” Then it was off to Harvard and then Oxford for a Rhodes scholarship in Philosophy.

After accumulating all of the credentials he could from his college experience, he went off to work entry level positions in politics and the media, in order to build his resume and network of contacts. Then it was off to McKinsey & Company, one of the major training centers for managerial class strivers. In anticipation of a political career, he joined the Navy reserve for an uneventful turn as an intelligence officer. He finally landed as the mayor of South Bend Indiana.

Buttigieg has the nearly perfect managerial man resume. The only thing that tarnishes it is he may have accidentally done something useful while in the service, like empty a trash barrel or remember to turn off the coffee pot. Otherwise, his is a resume littered with participation medals. From youth to middle age, Pete Buttigieg has avoided doing anything that involves risk or sacrifice. Instead, his life has been like ascending a gentle slope to a position he has always known is waiting for him.

He exists because a system that has evolved over the last half century now selects for men like him. That system’s only purpose is to perpetuate itself, so it selects for people who will never challenge it or even question it. Instead, it populates itself with people, who have internalized the logic of the system to the point where it is habit. The hive mind of the managerial class is the sum of these automatons incapable of existing outside the managerial system.

He is also symbolic of his generation. The generation of Americans, who grew up in the Clinton years and reached adulthood at the turn of the century, are probably the most entitled and effete cohort ever produced. They grew up in the easy years after the Cold War and never faced anything resembling hard times. They came into the world expecting things to turn out well for them. They were also raised by women in a highly feminized educational system and took on those qualities.

The fact that Pete Buttigieg is a genetic dead end is probably the most symbolic aspect of his character. The oriental empires of the ancient age liked to employ eunuchs in sensitive roles. These were men without ambition, as it were, so they were never going to be a threat to the people at the top. The promotion of and popularity of homosexuals in the managerial empire adds a touch of Orientalism and irony to a system that is otherwise sterile and pointless.

It is easy for normal people to dismiss Buttigieg, but he is both a symbol of his age and the system that produced him. He is the full expression of the managerial class that has come to dominate the American empire. His rise is the polls at the expense of the yesterday men like Biden and Sanders is an important moment. The fact that he is every bit as sterile and pointless as the system that produced him could perhaps make him the fullest expression of the Managerial Man.

Real estate bubbles from the 1980-2008 indirectly created the millennial manager muppet. “Good school district” was a popular meme for snobby whites who considered racism to be beneath them, so they used their children as human shields in protecting their neighborhoods from the diversity. “Tiger mom” schooling associated well with expensive housing that kept the wrong people out. But a generation later, the study robot drones are coming into power, and the housing bubble linked to school reputation is fading away.

This doesn’t work because it rubs out genuinely good schools that aren’t proxies for real estate speculation.

Millennials were the first generation drugged and beaten for bad school performance. Boomers were spoiled brats, and largely reacting badly against their own upbringing. Somehow they made things even worse. The key takeaway is that the high pressure prep schooling was never for the economic benefit of millennials hoping to secure a career based on high value skills. It was for boomers hoping to prop up their housing values during the bubble. Skills are for politically incorrect nations without red tape, not the West. Now we have a generation, at least among the middle class, that didn’t have happy childhoods,… Read more »

Not just propping up the housing bubble, but their own status. Which is also a bubble.

Avoiding the wrong minorities is the most important status symbol there is, on top of the more basic benefits like not being mugged every once in a while. Housing costs are the modern “moat” against the diversity. In cynical, urban areas, there is ethnic machine politics used to keep the wrong people out. Chinatowns and barrios have their own methods for segregation that don’t involve fertility destroying real estate schemes.

Exile,

Do not include Xers with Boomers. Totally different mindsets and worlds. There is a big difference between those that came of age in 50’s, 60’s and 70’s v. 80’s and 90’s. Xers also had to climb the hill of student loans, inflated housing markets, affirmative action, etc. . . . while listening to endless Boomer virtue signaling. That is why “cynicism” is associated with Xers.

Member

The X-ers never amounted to much, I’m sad to say. We inherited all the absurdity but always thought it was normal, or our own fault or something.

We were all going home from school to locked houses, experiencing a divorce every couple years, shagging like maniacs. Then we went to work where, literally, my first promotion was given to an H1B _so that_ they could justify his H1B (if they paid him the pittance they were paying me, well, he wouldn’t qualify for the program, see?)

We didn’t rebel against it because we thought we were failing.

Yeah, and I knew classmates who committed suicide over stressful schooling, and others who became drug addicts that I blame on getting forced to take study drugs as children. Even athletes in school risk their fertility and sexual health due to “supplement” abuse they have to do to perform well on the field. For zoomers, this includes girls having to compete with transsexuals.

Boomers never went through this! Their schooling wasn’t necessary for segregation or speculation, so it avoided the degeneracy. They never shot up their schools, either.

Boomers commenting on a blog about HBD and rayciss social policies still ask for special exceptions b/c they know a Boomer who doesn’t fit the stereotype that’s perfectly good for 2/3+ of them.

“Remarkably, however, a powerful trend toward abandoning corporal punishment is already under way. There has been a dramatic reduction in its use over the past two generations—an unprecedented change in a pattern that likely had been fixed for millennia. In the United States, for example, 94 percent of parents endorsed hitting kids in 1968, but only one-half approved by 1999.”

No, I wasn’t, but statistics don’t support widespread use of corporal punishment. It’s illegal in schools for all but 19 states, declining where it’s legal, and may require parental consent. I don’t doubt some parents abuse their children, but it’s not a generational trend.

Given the fact that children are adopted by homosexuals and reared (hurr hurr) to be transsexuals and most people don’t care, maybe it’s a possibility that things really are different now.

Maybe people just don’t care about children anymore. Mass obesity, a modern evolutionary novelty, might explain it, as people instinctively feel well fed and feel like the tribe is also fat and growing, even if the opposite is reality.

One of Taleb’s more robust assertions is that no one has ever proven a link between education and economics – a well-educated population isn’t necessarily prosperous.

Those of us who (unlike Taleb) recognize that IQ is real can easily connect those dots. IQ is correlated to success and prosperity and education is a very approximate proxy for IQ. I’d rather have a nation of 100 IQ autodidacts than a “well-educated” nation averaging 90.

Housing is still in bubble territory. When interest rates rise, RE will go down a lot. Lower interest rates only means cheap borrowing for a short amount of time because people tend to buy a payment and not the price. So you end up with ridiculous prices, prices that can only be sustained either by a general rise in prices including wages, or low interest in perpetuity. I’m old enough to remember my parents purchasing a home in 1981 when the fed’s target rate was North of 20%!

@bilejones, I think you’re right. But I’ve been thinking about the mechanism that might exist to correct that passivity. Obviously, the inclusive and open thinking we’re inculcated to creates this problem, because it creates space for the most clannish and tribal to exploit.

If they win in 5 years the U.S. won’t exist. Go look up a bill in the House called “The Way Forward Act”. If we get a Dem Senate or POTUS that thing will pass and the country will die.

And we whites will be hunted down by the brown horde and whites working for the FedGov.

You can rent lots of different guns at various gun stores that have their own ranges. It’s not too expensive. I’ve tried several AR variants that way as well as an Israeli Tavor bullpup that I couldn’t have afforded to buy. Of course you can always rent pistols. Not all store-based ranges will allow you to try rifles on them though.

And managers are not leaders. No one follows them into battle. Their agency is purely a contrived status that exists only because people need to earn money in order to survive. When money loses value, so will the apparatchiks. Yes-men are societal entropy fueled by affluence and large bureaucracy. Buttigieg is a creation of the Deep State, just like Obama. His only virtue is that he can get us to collapse almost as fast as Bernie.

He’s Gen-X. But other than that, a pretty good description of him. But a major obstacle he has is blacks. It probably remains to be seen how women in general will react to him. Despite all the feminist posturing, women like strong men. It’s hard to imagine he is going to build a lot of excitement outside of the woke core. It’s not just his being gay either. He is as bland and unexciting as the managerial state itself. He isn’t even fun to hate.

“Lifeforms.” That’s great. I’ll remember that.

The men of the disconnected elite of pre-revolutionary France and Russia served in the military.

He was commissioned an officer and planned to serve as a rear-echelon desk jockey in Naval Intelligence but ended up facing a certain amount of danger as a driver. Tulsie Gabbard, a young woman, faced more danger as a military policewoman. Thanks, feminism.

Buttigieg also serves other purposes. Buttigieg represents the culmination of progressive Puritan Christianity seperated from the New Testament doctrines of that Christianity.
Progressivism with the zeal of the Apostle Paul only changing what the Apostle Paul taught is the new religion.
Buttigieg confidently declares the Apostle Paul wrong when he wrote in the book of Romans about homosexuality.
And any Christian believing the Apostle Paul over Buttigieg he declares them a heretic.
The Millenial generation.
They sure are a confident lot.
Buttigieg knows better than Paul.

Buttigieg strikes me as a strong challenger to Trump, for a eunuch anyhow. His only weakness is among black and hispanic males. The crazy cat ladies love him.

Reading this reminds me of the Roman cursus honorium.

This is a really good explanation of why our elites are such rubbish. It isn’t exactly that the elites attempt to perpetuate themselves, it’s that perpetuating themselves is a pointless exercise. Having no vitality or virtue or purpose, they’ve chosen a more or less random set of abilities to reward. It’s working about as well as you’d expect.

The fact that Pete Buttigieg is a genetic dead end is probably the most symbolic aspect of his character….These were men without ambition, as it were, so they were never going to be a threat to the people at the top.

Also, the globalists prefer front men with no offspring, because they don’t mind selling out future generations.

Wasn’t it the case a couple years ago that most of the European heads of state had no children?

Still is – or at least an amazing number of them haven’t, especially if you look inside Brussels, where the real power is wielded.

Theodore Dalrymple on Richard II: The book about him suggested that there was much criticism of Richard at the time, but that it never got to the root of the problem, which was the very nature of the medieval political system. His critics thought only that he failed as an individual, not that corruption and misrule were inherent in the very feudal system of which he was at the summit. This was a system in which the only remedy for incompetence or worse was overthrow, usually accompanied by murder. Can someone point out a political system for which the remedy… Read more »

Too late, but I’ll bring it up tomorrow.

“men, who come to symbolize the age”

Example A:

This must be the fakest, gayest oppo ever.
Right on cue, of course- are they even trying anymore?

And the “replies”! So much bot AI, my phone is about to achieve sentience.

Update: now I get it. They’re giving themselves something to talk about. Told ya I was slow.

Faker than Mrs. Krull’s orgasms and gayer than Liberace singing “It’s Raining Men” with a chorus line of naked boy scouts doing high kicks.

Identical flags, masks and caps, straight from Central Casting. How much do you want to bet not a single one of these gentlemen will be doxxed?

I guess I’m dumb. I find Patriot Front inspiring. Their leader Tom is an impressive guy.

The argument against this kind of activism is that it allows the members to be doxxed and have their young lives ruined. I get it. That’s why I wouldn’t join them.

Yet the young, disaffected white men I know instinctively want a mannerbund and to reclaim public space. Someone has to be the vanguard.

It’s probably a bad idea but I still smile.

The USG has spent and inordinate amount if time trying to infiltrate and destroy organizations like this which has left all of us a little paranoid that all of them are fronts for the Feds There are a lot of reasons for that effort by those same Feds they are in fact a threat to that order but mostly because its easy. Its far easier to infiltrate a social club than a genuine mafia and if someone gets outed even if you can’t roll them up. nothing will come of it. Think of the elation n the face of the… Read more »

What difference does it make? We’ll just send them an extra helping of gibs to ensure their demographic edge.

Don’t help? I’m sure we have some spare locusts around here that we could send over.

Huh? Oh. Never mind.

Plan B. Send Chinese advisors, a few CONEX loads of woks and cooking oil, and the locust problem AND the eternal famine problem are solved. Locusts are very nutritious.

Plan C. Send Chinese advisors with coronavirus. Enact absolute travel ban. Overpopulation problem solved in a few months.

A few random observations. First, Bloomberg is going nowhere. The FT printed what had to be the ugliest picture of any candidate anywhere. Shot from below looking up, Bloomberg looked like a freak with a face transplant. Page 2 of the Weekend Edition. Its all gay, all Buttgig. Second, not only is Buttgig the odds on favorite for the nomination but the Presidency. The Deep/Derp state road tested rigging elections in Iowa (Bernie really won decisively and likely Buttgig was not even second or third) and will likely simply put him in November the same way. They likely won’t even… Read more »

Whiskey, nice to see you man but you Black Pill far too much. Americans cannot be made to pay super high taxes, you can’t get above 20% GDP no matter what they’ll quit working/slow down or cheat as they;always have .Door to door gun seizures would provoke succession if not a civil war. Virginia is nearly ready right now for that or bugaloo and the desire would spread far faster than any actions the Left could take. Also to do something that radical would require a huge crazy Democratic majority which isn’t going to happen. Now as to the Bernie… Read more »

I’m waiting for Biden to assault a voter who dares question him… google “lying, dog faced pony soldier.”

I can only surmise the origin of that quote is 1950s TV Westerns.

The feminization of Yankee society keeps advancing. It involves immasculating those bothersome men as, indeed it was once done in other times and places like here: https://nailheadtom.blogspot.com/2019/02/an-answer-to-me-too-crisis.html
