Two Worlds

I had no intention of watching the debate as I’ve seen enough of them to know they will always be “two-on-one moonbat fun.” The moderator will gang up with the Democrat to attack the Republican. Even mild nothing-burgers like Mitt Romney got the business from that fat woman on CNN. But, friends told me Trump was beating the old bag up, so I tuned in just in time to see him put the saddle on the fat cow and ride her around the debate stage. I did not watch a lot of it, but it was fun seeing the good guys win.

The thing that crept into my mind was how weird it all felt. As a normie, I know that the two airheads installed as moderators are way out there where-the-buses-don’t-run. In all probability they have been working with the Clinton campaign to try and setup Trump. Similarly, the audience questions would be hand picked and designed to help Clinton. I knew all that and I’m sure everyone watching knew it too. Yet, I got the distinct impression that the two moonbats really thought they were fooling us.

The same was true in the after debate programs. I ran through the cable channels and I saw chattering skulls swearing that Clinton had a great night. I saw others grudgingly saying that Trump did some things well. What everyone in America saw was a complete and total beat down. Even the squirrely guy with the bad wig, Frank Luntz, could not get his phony-baloney focus group to pretend it was close. I was left wondering if these people are insane and really believe this stuff, or they are just paid to lie so they lie.

Having had my fill of that nonsense, I flipped over to the sportball games and I saw an ad from the fat cow featuring a person claiming to be a Republican voting for the fat cow. The claim in the ad is Trump has autism so she is not going to vote for him. Think about that for a second. The man has been in the public eye for over three decades. He has been doing business deals all over the world. By now someone would have noticed that he has autism. Yet, they run the ad hoping that someone will believe it.

Steve Sailer has a post up about how everything the media tells us with regards to Hispanics and their voting habits is largely nonsense. If you went solely by what is broadcast by the media, you would think America is about to tilt majority Hispanic and their vote is critical. In reality, Hispanics are about two-thirds the black population and their votes don’t matter very much because they tend not to vote. As Sailer says, the media does not seem to know much about Hispanics. Alternatively, they are lying.

I think there is a third option. The media reports on the America they imagine, not the actual country. They stuff the news events into their model of reality. It’s why the British press runs laps around the US media when reporting on America. The people immersed in the American media eventually come to believe the model of the world and can’t imagine any other. The result is the people screaming at us through the megaphones often sound like crazy people, ranting about imaginary things that either don’t exist or can’t exist.

It’s not just the media. That’s the window through which we glimpse the managerial class. I’ve recently had reason to spend time among the Cloud People and I had the same feeling I get when traveling abroad. I was in a strange land with strange people,so  I was much more restrained in my speech and movement. Even though I speak the language, I really can’t read what’s behind the eyes anymore. They look like me and they make the same sorts of noises, but there’s a barrier between myself and these people.

Within living memory, professionals regularly interacted with the working and lower classes. Poor people got to see how middle and upper middle people lived. I grew up poor and had many examples of middle class people I could emulate to get out of poverty. Today, the Cloud People are increasingly insulated from the Dirt People. To the typical managerial class type, the great bulk of America is outside their field of view. In the case of the media, it is to the extreme as they live and work in the media centers.

When the “experts” pondered the Brexit result, they sounded like primatologists puzzling over why the monkeys they were observing suddenly acted in a new way. In the current US election, I’m often struck by the feeling that the people in the media are puzzled as to why Clinton is not up by fifty points. Because the answer is outside the set of things that sit inside their model of the world, they are left to either pretend she is up by fifty points or assign dark motives to the deplorable Dirt People outside the perimeter.

We are a nation of two worlds now. The Cloud People are in their world, which is just about divorced from our world. Increasing they speak in their own argot that uses English words, but with alien meanings. They don’t live where we live or live as we live. We have been colonized by pod people, who are only vaguely aware of the rest of us. Unlike the British Colonial officers of old, our rulers don’t have much interest in us. We’re just a bad smell to them, something they tolerate while dreaming of the day when will be rid of us.

This is similar to the Brazilian model, except that in Brazil, the ruling elite is at least a full standard deviation more intelligent than the lower classes. In the American model, the world of the Cloud People is something similar to the Marching Morons, except that the extraction system on which it is based insulates them from the consequences of their own actions. Hillary Clinton is a dangerously incompetent boob, but she may be elevated to the top job simply because the system protects her and repels even well-heeled challengers.

One of the lessons of Africa in the mid-20th century is that people prefer to be ruled poorly by their own, rather than expertly by strangers. The Managerial class spends all of its time debating how to expertly manage the economy and how to replace the Dirt People they find inconvenient with imported Dirt People they believe are more compliant. Meanwhile, the Dirt People slowly begin to realize that they are ruled by strangers. When the Africans were barred from taking command of the machinery of rule, they smashed it. That’s another lesson to remember.

Both of my grandfathers started out working in machine shops and eventually ended up in management. One of them actually worked for Lincoln Electric Company – which used to be a business school case study subject because they made all management new hires work on the production floor for a year before letting them act like managers. When I was in college, I worked on the production line of a GM plant every summer – good money and a glimpse at how stuff gets done (not done well at GM in the 80’s).

It is generally agreed that Officers in the Heer were of superb quality and were responsible for the cohesion of the German Army which fought admirably until the end. What is not publicized is that prior to the beginning of the war the budding German officers actually spent a year as an actual Soldat (Offizieranwärter).

My Dad started out as a truck driver for the Milwaukee Journal and worked his way up to circulation manager in other newspapers. Probably helped him in dealing with the teamsters… The first computer company I worked for, Floating Point Systems, required every design engineer hired to first spend time on the test floor bringing up machines. I’m pretty sure that was a very cheap way to reduce poor designs, as well as making connections between them and test floor technicians.

One thing about Fleet Street is that the British broadsheets make no mystery of their editorial slant. American media outlets, particularly the dinosaur newspapers, have the nerve to make pretenses of objectivity. For a long time Americans believed them, too. Every single one of them had a Leftist slant, of course, so Americans consumed what was essentially Left wing propaganda while thinking it was the sober and dispassionate assessment of the facts by unbiased reporters. In other words, it was and is a particularly insidious combination. Sometimes I wonder if the power they wield over the American perception of reality… Read more »

You were doing well, right up until you said that Africans overthrew their colonial governments. This is hilariously untrue. In reality, that “overthrow” was the power shift of Harvard taking over the former colonial possessions, Harvard which today still rules the continent, through the arming, organizing, and funding of rebels, similarly to what what we see in the U.S.’s present-day meddling in the Middle East.

At least now – finally! – I understand Liberals’ obsession with magic, magic words. They’re financially able to create this little bubble-reality for themselves, which they then invent words to describe…. and since those words can only describe that particular reality, consigning all else to outer darkness, they really come to believe that words shape reality. Thus they can say, and apparently believe, that Trump is winning because “patriarchy,” because that word means something on campus — no “male” they know would ever be so crude as to vote in his own interests!

Too many people act as if they can get to the truth by listening to liars. Maybe it’s a “big ego”/ overeducated thing? Myself I think someone who tries to scam me will likely succeed sooner or later, and I’m not inclined to spend much effort sorting through bullshit to get truth. To me, it looks like the MSM are eagerly cutting their own throats by destroying their credibility – but I guess too many people prefer the delusions the media are selling, the excuses for looting the normal citizens and masturbating their egos about being “nicer and smarter”

Living in the UK for a while back in the mid-’80s, I was struck how many of the people lived in a dream world where Margaret Thatcher was absolutely evil, and how everything would be brilliant if the likes of her would take a hike. Similarly, I recall how so many people in this country have believed over time that things would be so much better if Nixon/Reagan/George W Bush would just go away.

Imperial Rome? They still went through the motions of a Republic even though everyone knew it was over. The Patriarchs were their Cloud People and were exempt from the taxes and rules they imposed on the Dirt People. The Middle Class was effectively extinguished through crushing taxes and imported (slave) labor.

Even the worst of the Emperors made some pretense of leading campaigns against the barbarians and performing the duties of pontiff and censor.

I get a deja vu of 18th century Britain aristocratic attitudes. The ruling class simply could not understand why the Americans were so disgruntled and rebellious with their rule. I don’t think most of them ever even really figured out why the Revolutionary War was fought. People in America weren’t starving. People in America weren’t evicted from their homes, so what was their beef? The elites this go ’round don’t understand either.

Rose, in my experience, the Control Freaks have a lot of personal issues. For whatever reason, they are incapable of a “live and let live” attitude. It seems like they need to work out their personal issues by taking it out on others. Obama certainly meets that description, and Hillary appears to do so as well. It would be very nice to be able to choose between candidates who have policy prescriptions backed by a coherent philosophy of the role of government, rather than dealing with people who are playing out their mommy and daddy issues on all of us.

You’re right, they do. They seek to control because they cannot cope with an unpredictable life.

I’m really hoping that the polling here is just as flawed as it was for Brexit. I think there are a lot of us normal people who will tell a pollster on the other end of a phone call or their wife’s 300 facebag “friends” that they are undecided or pro-hag but will pull that lever in the voting booth. I think there is a critical mass of people who are sick of being barked at and pushed around by a small minority of circus freaks and rap video wannabee gangstas. I hoe I’m right.

What if Trump pulls a majority out of disaffected GOP and DEM ex-voters? It really look like he has the makings of a new party. Not a 3rd party because I think the GOP is dead now.

You can vote for whomever you want in the future; if Hillary Clinton wins your vote will no longer matter.
