The Gathering Darkness

Way back when I had a real job, I was part of the hiring process for certain positions in the local branches. One of my tasks was to sort the resumes that came in through various recruiting programs. Once a week I would spend a few hours opening mail, reading the resumes, and sorting them into buckets. After a while they would start looking the same. My job was not to evaluate them at that point. I was just sorting them and then sending them on for further processing.

It was a boring task, but once in a while a wacky one would come through to make the few hours’ worth it. One time I got a resume from someone who had worked in local politics her whole life. It was very well done and had a nice cover letter. The letter explained that she had been in local politics for twenty years but wanted to transition into a private sector position. The thing that struck me about the letter is she indicated she was best qualified for a management position, given her experience.

Her experience, however, was entirely useless in the private sector. Her life had been spent working on committees, campaigns, and staffs for local pols. The titles she listed were meaningless gibberish to me. Imagine someone claiming to have been the “The Deputy Assistant Centurion of the Alpha Quadrant” in charge of “nebulizing the remulac” and you get the idea. I read the job descriptions carefully trying to figure out what the woman actually did in the listed positions. No luck.

At the time, I just thought it was a strange resume, but over the years I have come to realize that the world of politics and our world disconnected at some point. There has always been a separation of politics and regular life, but with enough movement back and forth to keep both sides tethered to one another. There was also the practical reality of politics depending on popular support. If things got bad for the people, they may try to hang the king, so the king had to keep an eye on them.

Today they are completely different worlds. I have a segment on Liz Cheney. Her life may as well have been lived in another solar system. Technically, she is supposed to be representing the interests of Wyoming in the people’s house. In reality, she is the Cloud People’s representative to the Dirt People of Wyoming. She may as well correspond with them via video link, like the alien overlords in sci-fi movies. “People of Wyoming, this is your humanoid representative. Obey and listen to instructions.”

Again, all societies, regardless of the form of government, have a ruling elite that is often at odds with and out of touch with the people. That is why there are subsystems that provide feedback to the decision makers. That is the problem that parliaments are supposed to solve. How best to keep the rulers and the ruled in communication so both sides understand the other enough to avoid conflict. Today, those feedback loops no longer exist. The political system operates in isolation from us.

The result is we have the Dirt People thinking they live in a representative democracy where their votes dictate public policy. The Cloud People think they live in a novel form of dictatorship where their decisions are applauded by the masses. It is why so many of the Cloud People are convinced there is an evil conspiracy afoot to rile up the masses against the system. Why else would they not be clapping? From their perspective, the system is running as expected, so the opposition is illogical.

The Dirt People, having been trained their whole lives to think the humanoids they choose between in elections care about their votes, are baffled by why those humanoids never following instructions. Unable to question the logic of the system itself, they come up with novel theories about why the Cloud People are doing the things they are doing. At some point, the right answer is “they are not us”. That is always the answer when the Cloud People float too far away from the Dirt People.

Thinking About Stuff

I said after the last election that there are a dwindling number of ways for disaffected whites to participate in conventional politics. All of them are disruptive. For example, whites can boycott elections, especially targeting Republicans. Elections are about legitimacy and boycotts attack the legitimacy of the election. In a world of outlandish election fraud, the boycott is a useful tool. Even the most craven despots want to believe they have the support of the people.

We may be seeing something like this evolve with Biden. His big speech, which was hyped by both sides of the uniparty, drew 11 million viewers. The YouTube livestream was mostly people taking the time to down vote the feed. YouTube started deleting the down votes, but the ratio was still awful. This was supposed to be The Pretender’s big moment and people either tuned out or mocked it. In the technological age, that is the equivalent of a boycott. It was a virtual boycott.

Of course, apathy is also an explanation. Joe Biden has always been a stupid gasbag, the kind of guy who people avoid at parties. Now he is a doddering old fool with scrambled eggs for brains. Most people are embarrassed to see this ridiculous man performing even more ridiculous spectacles. White people tend not to enjoy seeing someone humiliate themselves. Fremdschamen is a real thing. It is possible the lack of interest is driven by a sense of shame.

Even so, the total lack of interest in Biden must be worrisome. There are two clear pillars of the current regime. One is they are defending democracy from insurrectionist white supremacists. This myth is so important to them they even made Biden compare January 6 to the Civil War. The other is that Biden is the great unifier of the people, a modern day Lincoln. Not all of the people. Like Lincoln, Biden would like to murder half the white people, but he is still wildly popular.

This summer the regime will try to stage some fake patriotic protests in Washington to keep the insurrectionist pillar standing. Those Trump rallies this summer will be cast as Nazi party rallies or perhaps the new Klan rally. That will be enough to keep the regime thinking they are in a great struggle with evil. It is remarkable how guys like Trump, despite the rhetoric, end up being tools of the system. The regime needs Trump and right on cue he is going to be there for them.

They cannot fake the lack of interest in Mumbly Joe. They clearly asked YouTube to rig their system to make Biden look popular. The media will keep telling us that Biden is the most admired man on earth. It is really hard to fake popularity and efforts to do usually backfire on the regime. There is always the risk of a Ceaușescu moment. Given the problems in the economy and the ongoing unrest, it is hard to see how they maintain this pillar of the regime. People just do not like Biden very much.

The Mob Rules

Every once in a while, you cannot help but notice that the people who rule over us are operating like primitives from another age. A great example is this video in which Susan Wojcicki, the head of YouTube, gives herself an award. The award in this case is for her support of free speech. While accepting the award, she brags about the efforts of YouTube to stifle the speech of anyone with whom she disagrees. You see, slavery is freedom, war is peace, and she is a hero of free speech.

The amazing bit is where she mentions that her family was chased out of Poland because they kept saying and doing things the Poles did not like. She says this experience that she did not actually experience, is what drives her now to drive people off the internet who say and do things she does not like. You see, back then it was bad, but now it is good because she is doing it. More important, she is justified in doing it because Hitler, which makes everything right.

This is, of course, a primitive mindset. When one band of savages sacked the village of another band of savages, they would erect their totem. The presence of their god in the form of that totem made it all good. Everything was seen in terms of the blood feud, so everything was justified. The people being savaged had it coming because somewhere in the past their ancestors did something to deserve it. Today the claim is the bad people are white, so they deserve whatever they get.

What makes the video amusing is she found a shiksa who is literally blind to present the award to her. First of all, a blind video maker is something from a bad script writer or a hacky comic. Putting that aside, the only person unable to see the absurdity of Wojcicki giving herself an award is a blind woman. This is Kim Jung-un giving himself “Humanitarian of the Year” or Nancy Pelosi, after a few jugs of wine, proclaiming herself the most sober person in Washington.

John Derbyshire used to say there is hope in the comments. This is where you see that people are not falling for the lies. This is why most sites have banished their comment sections now. YouTube is about to banish their down vote button for what you see in that video. There are 116 upvotes from YouTube lackeys and thirty thousand down votes from normal people. The comments tell the story. Primitive dirt-bags like Wojcicki can give herself awards, but she is not fooling anyone.

Feelin’ Groovy

Maybe it is the rush of spring, but this felt like a good week. Here in Lagos, the trees are starting to bloom and the weather is just about perfect. For me, anything above 75 is uncomfortable, so temps in the mid-60’s are pretty nice. There is also the fact that the day job has been hassle free lately. Since the onset of the plague, my schedule has been packed with people demanding my immediate attention. The last few weeks it has settled into something of a comfortable pattern for a change.

In the political realm, the absurdity of it all is too much to ignore. I was talking with a friend who was never fond of Trump. He voted for him, at least that is what he said, but he thought Trump was a clown. He said to me, “You’re my age. Did you ever think Joe Biden would be President?” It was one of those moments when the ridiculousness of the age jumps out at you. Normal white people are walking around with the same thought in their head. We live in clown world.

At lunch the other day, the economy was the topic. One person would mention the bad news, like the rising cost of most things. Someone would counter with the stock market or the supposed hiring spike. This went back and forth until someone finally said, “You know, none of this could be true at all. No one knows what’s going on because we can’t trust anything we’re being told.” Again, I detected that detached bemusement that comes when you stop pretending it matters.

I think the thing that did it for me was when I checked out some clips from the Chauvin trial the other day. The state had called a doctor who was supposed to be an expert on cardiovascular issues. The guy was such a ridiculous ham, that it felt like satire. He clearly went to the William Shatner School of Acting. He did a dramatic performance of lifesaving doctor for the jury, but then the defense lawyer asked, “So what you are saying is George Floyd would be alive if just got in the police car?”

I think if I were on that jury, I would have bust out laughing. Everything about that trial feels like a joke on us by the people running this simulation. In fact, that is true about most everything these days. Joe Biden as President would have been a punch line to a joke not so long ago. Men in dresses playing girls’ sports? You just have to step back and admire the absurdity of it all. We cannot know what African scholars will call this time, but it will most likely focus on the silliness of the age.

Reality does not like to be mocked, so you can be sure a corrective, and a very large one, is lying out there in the distance. Maybe the fantasy economy will suddenly slam into mathematical realty. Maybe Russia and China will figure out that our military is a wreck and the leadership is a joke. Maybe Mother Nature decides to send a real plague to teach those mask wearing idiots a lesson. Who knows? For now though, it is spring, the flowers are blooming and clown world is in peak form.

Various Stuff

Another week is in the books and we are a little closer to what is shaping up to a summer of madness. If you have been paying attention to the Chauvin trial, you will see that we are headed to a very bad place. The state’s case so far boils down to “He may have not paid careful attention in a safety class years ago, so he is guilty.” They have not even tried to address the key questions of the case. In a first world country, this trial would not exist. The court would not allow it.

If you read the summaries of the trial, you cannot help but wonder if both sides are trying to throw the case. The state called one witnesses that was so bad for their case, the defense added her to their witness list. Another witness had to admit that the cops probably should have been rougher with Saint George. Unless you are there every day, it is hard to get a read on these things, but it looks as if the state is not even trying to give the jury a reason to convict this guy of anything.

The defense has not been stellar either. At this stage they are limited to cross examination, so we will see when it is their turn to put on a show. So far, they seem to be happy to let the state’s witnesses do their best to undermine the state’s case. Given the levels of corruption in modern America, you have to wonder if the defense has not been told to throw the case. In a banana republic like America, in the halls of justice, the only justice is in the halls. The fix is always in.

Again, it is hard to judge these things from a distance. The O. J. Simpson trial is the obvious parallel. A blind man could see that Simpson was guilty, but the defense was allowed to turn the trial into a racial circus. For the jury, it stopped being about facts and law and became a weird sort of beauty pageant. They picked a winner based on how it made them feel at the moment. This jury could have made up its mind in advance and they not paying any attention to any of this.

The thing that may save Chauvin is the jury does not have many whites on it and has quite a few black women. For starters, this is Minnesota, so the white people there are thoroughly and completed cucked. If this were an all-white jury, they would be arriving to court with shirts reading “we’re so sorry.” The black women know all about guys like Saint George Floyd. If the state cannot make him look like their son, instead of their son’s ne’er-do-well father, the state has a problem.

Like people, societies make their own luck. This is a terrible case to use for a remake of To Kill A Mockingbird. Floyd is not a sympathetic character. The world is better place without him. On the other hand, Chauvin is not a good guy either. The cops everywhere are out of control and people are increasingly sick of it. The prosecutors are incompetent, and the defense thus far is not much better. The way to bet here is the jury will turn out to be just as bad as everything else with this case.

Sermon On The Net

This being Good Friday, I thought a show about Christianity and the dissident right would be a good topic. I was torn on how I wanted to do it, so it did not come out as well as I hoped. I had a few ideas on how to approach the subject, but I could not settle on one, so I ended up coming at it from a few different angles. In retrospect, I should have mulled it over a bit longer to get my thoughts in order. On the other hand, it means I can revisit the topic at some point in the future.

One of the odd things about dissident politics is that our side of the great divide has different tribes that probably would not find common cause if not for having been driven off the public stage. Thirty years ago, the “secular right” was not all that fond of the religious right. They even setup a site for themselves as a refuge from those Bible-wielding conservatives. It looks like they ran out of steam a couple of years ago, which is fitting given the circumstances of the moment.

It seems like there is an opportunity for the two main wings of the dissident right to find common cause again. If you look at the main players in the new free speech movement, for example, they tend to be men of faith. The American First crowd is very proudly Christian, even though they do not get into the details of what that means. On the other hand, the authority of the secular wing is rooted in biological reality. The quantifiable differences in people are the starting point for many dissidents.

In the before times, the secular wing always chaffed at the rhetoric of Christian conservatives, mostly out of ignorance. People drawn to secular politics tend not to be comfortable with the topics in religion. Today, Christians tend to be uncomfortable with the langue of most dissidents. Talk of evolution is alienating to them, because they have been conditioned to view it as an enemy of their faith. Our side of the great divide is an uneasy alliance of people who do not entirely trust one another.

That is the main point of the show this week. Secular people need to get more comfortable talking about religion, but dissident Christians need to reexamine their hostility to certain dissident topics. The fact is a large majority of white people consider themselves Christians. On the other hand, a large majority of dissidents long for a return to tradition. There is no reason why religion should not be an integral part of dissident politics, even if many dissidents are not religious.

The Carny Train

I am torn on whether this age should be called the Carny Age, the Crazy Age, or the Age of Hysteria. I like all three and there are probably others that work, but the last one really gets to the heart of the matter. America is like an aging woman, suddenly realizing that her biological clock is running out of ticks. All of that phony confidence she learned from modern feminism is quickly turning into anger and bitterness. Much of the lunacy is driven by early and middle middle-aged women.

Here is a perfect example. This story is written by a middle-aged Indian woman attacking one of the schools in the big basketball tournament. The whole point of the story is so the aging mediocrity can get some attention. Look at her resume and you see that her “I am woman here me roar” life choices did not work out as the lesbians in the woman’s studies department promised. Mx. Jhaveri has never reached higher than an entry level position at small media outfits.

Time after time, what has been termed cancel culture, turns out to be projectile hysteria by early middle aged women. The Huffington Post is nothing but a coven of homely women in terror over hitting the wall. It is why they foment so much of the doxing and cancel culture nonsense. Popular culture is one long night of premium ice cream, Lifetime channel marathons and late night texting. Our women have gone insane and taken the rest of the country with them.

That is why Age of Hysteria seems to work the best. It also implies that the solution is something like this. On the other hand, the underlying cause of this is the carny morality that has taken over the ruling classes. None of our betters has anything resembling dignity now, not even the British royals. That current batch looks like extras from one of those game shows where contestants agree to do humiliating things in order to win some cash prizes. The prize today is an Oprah interview.

Everywhere you look in the ruling classes, the people who should be secure in their position are desperately shouting, “Look at me! look at me!” Despite their wealth and power, they carry on like they need affirmation. That is the carny culture. The engine that drives that sort of society is the willingness to do anything for some applause, some attention, or some laughs. Whatever it takes to get the crowd to perk up and take notice of you is acceptable. There is no bad publicity.

As I said in the show, people living in a period rarely know how it will be viewed from the distance of time. Given the current trajectory, the Zoomers could look back on this time in a generation and call it the Golden Age. How this time is viewed will depend a lot upon how the current crisis concludes. People in the 1970’s thought they were doomed, but then things turned around for a couple of decades. Maybe that is what awaits us in the coming years. A period of relative calm and good fortune.

Rambling Man Vol 3

Note: I will be on with Patrick Casey tonight at 7:00 PM. The topics will be 1) the importance of the kids staying off my lawn, b) why my generation’s music is better than the current crap and iii) why we used to wear an onion on our belt. You can click this link to listen, but you need an account to ask questions in the chat.


The last segment of the show this week is mostly about this clip featuring Andrew Sullivan and Christopher Caldwell. Someone on Gab sent it to me, suggesting they are starting to stumble into the Cloud people – Dirt People thing. Listening to the two of them, I felt like I was eavesdropping on a conversation among aliens. I was struck by their solipsism and lack of imagination. They both know there are people and societies outside their world, but they do not think too hard about them.

What really got me was how the two of them agreed that they are part of the global economy, while the rubes out in flyover country are not. It is fair to say that neither of them is part of the economy at all. Writing essays for one another is economic activity of a sort, but only at the furthest edge of the leisure end. The guy riding a leaf blower around an office park is involved in the global economy. He is from another country and his tools are sourced from around the world.

This gets to the heart of the current troubles. The ruling class is stuffed to the gills with provincial mediocrities who think they are worldly sophisticates. When our betters go abroad, they go to places that are filled with the exact same people they experience in Washington, New York, or any of the elite enclaves. Look around at where these people live and work and it is always the same. Their world is an extended version of the college campus, a shelter from the reality of the rest of us.

I think this is one aspect of the managerial class that gets missed. One reason these people assume all people are the same is that in their world it is true. For the most part, race, sex, ethnicity, even class, are superficial attributes. That nice African from the sociology department has a funny accent, but otherwise he is not all that different from the Jewish guy in the anthropology department or the white woman from the psychology department with the dream catcher on her door.

There also seems to be a sense of randomness to their outlook. Hollywood stars are far Left mostly because they know they got lucky. For them, life is a lottery, and they got a winning ticket, so they assume this is how the world works in general. The mediocrities in the managerial class seem to have adopted the same view. They look around at the sameness around them, the utter lack of utility, and they think they are the beneficiaries of good fortune, which they call privilege.

This is not wrong, but it does not work as they imagine. For them, life was simply a matter of following the clearly written instructions. Almost all of these people have the same sort of background. Professional parents, private schools, elite colleges, self-actualizing career choices. All around them are people who have the same story, so why is it they get to live relatively easy lives? It must be their privilege, which they now project onto the world outside their walls.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show.

Starter Books

In a private conversation, there was a lively back and forth about the books that new people to our politics should read. One of the hidden truths about this side of the great divide is it is a highly literate movement. People drawn to this type of politics tend to enjoy reading. Then there is the fact that our politics is not cut off from the Western intellectual tradition, which is the case for most conventional politics. As a result, we have a vast library of writing on our topics of interest.

That vastness is a problem. This side of the great divide has a lot of diversity of interests and thought. If you are drawn over by the human science, there are dozens of great books to get you started. If you are into right-wing intellectual history, you have more books and writers than you can read in a lifetime. Everyone on our side has their favorites. Many have a book or a writer they credit with their awakening. The new person can find it intimidating at first.

With that in mind, the show this week is about the books to get someone started on understanding dissident politics. These are not foundation texts or anything like that, just doorways to the sorts of topics that get discussed here. When you are a kid learning to write, you start with the big pencil and wide-ruled paper. You do not use that for the rest of your life. It is just how you get started. The books for the new person to our politics should work the same way.

The thing about the books covered in the show is they challenge the reader’s conditioning on various topics. That really is the essence of dissident politics when you stop and think about it. Because liberal democracy and the technological state cannot comport with the reality of the human condition, you are left with two choices. You can deny the reality of the human condition or question the morality and legitimacy of the prevailing orthodoxy. That is the great divide in a nutshell.

Of course, this is the sort of topic that generates endless disputes, because no two people have the same list. There is no doubt that many people will be outraged at the selection of titles in the taboo book section. Well, outraged by one of the books and what I have to say about it. At some point in the future, that will be the topic of a full show and maybe a series of posts. Again, the point here is a gentle introduction to the taboo subjects that can only be discussed on this side.

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.

White Fragility

One of the strange things about living through a particular time is that things that define that age in the moment just seem to pop up from nothing. For example, one day two men getting married is a punchline to a joke. The next day you are in human resources signing your termination papers for mocking homosexual marriage. One day men in drag are something you recall your parents laughing at and the next day your kid’s teacher is in a frock demanding you call him “they” for some reason.

The reason these things feel like they have sprung from nowhere is most people are normal, living normal lives. They are too busy living those normal lives to look into who is plotting what over in the shadows of the managerial class. Most of us live outside the world of elite opinion, so we cannot see it evolving and embracing the latest boutique opinions to wear around like amulets. By the time we notice, the finished product has been imposed onto the culture.

That is what’s useful about looking into the people profiting from the new moral panic of whiteness and its related items, like white supremacy. Russ Travers is Mumbly Joe’s new antiwhite crusader. Before he was an antiwhite crusader, he was an anti-Muslim crusader in the now largely defunct War on Terror™. He got canned last spring as the Trump administration tried to purge these people from the system. He claims it was due to his demand to go after whites, instead of Muslims.

Of course, what was really going on is this guy was getting off the anti-Muslim bus and jumping on the anti-white bus. He saw that the former was a dying racket, but the former offered an ambitious career man like him many new opportunities. Rather than try his luck in the dreaded private sector, which is worse than death, he quickly became an evangelist against white supremacist terror. Again, yesterday the great threat was Islam and today the great threat is you. Just like that.

In reality, this antiwhite pogrom was in the works for years. You see that in the resume of Robin DiAngelo, the authoress of the book White Fragility. She started out trying to grift on the feminism stuff, but that was an overserved market, so she tried getting into the diversity rackets, but then she stumbled into the gold mine. She could be a life coach to guilty white liberals, in major corporations and government, helping them confront their white privilege and implicit racism.

Does Mx DiAngelo believe the nonsense she promotes? Probably not. Conmen believe in one thing. “You can’t cheat an honest man; never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump.” What she believes does not matter. It is what the chumps she is fleecing believe that matters. The managerial class, which has the money and power, believes white people are the problem, so grifters like Robin DiAngelo are there to tell them they are right. Russ Travers will protect them.
