A World Without Consequences

When I was a kid, serendipity landed me in a very nice prep school for boys. The student body was mostly drawn from the upper middle class. There were a few genuinely middle class kids and a few kids from very wealthy homes. The handful of poor kids, who got there on their wits and dumb luck, naturally stood out from the crowd. At that age, kids are keenly aware of differences in class. That’s because the awareness of group status is strongest at that age. As a result it was rough going for the poor kids initially.

My first taste of it was in the locker-room for gym class. A snotty little rich kid started giving me the business. He was smaller and weaker than me and it was obvious, at least to me, that he would not fare well in a fight with me or with anyone probably. He was not tough. He persisted and when he put his finger in my chest, I put his face into a locker a few times. The one thing poor guys know is that soft men do not react well to the sight of their own blood. My nemesis started to cry and then ran for a teacher.

His friends volunteered to tell the head master that I was the villain, so I was hauled away for interrogation. That was when I discovered that there was such a thing as bourgeois values. Poor kids never rat and they never run to the authorities. In the upper middle class, it is exactly the opposite. The winner is the guy who runs to the authorities with the most convincing tale of woe. It’s just assumed that some authority with the power to pass judgement will adjudicate matters, based on a set of unwritten rules I’d never unriddle.

Lucky for me, the school was not unfamiliar with this phenomenon. My adviser was a man who had come up from the lower classes, so he understood what it was like for us. This was why, most likely, he was assigned the poor kids. This was not obvious to me at the time. He just seemed to know what was in our heads, like he was magic. That made him extremely effective at convincing all of us that we had to adapt and learn how to outwit our enemies. By resorting to violence, I had given the others a reason to dismiss me.

The lesson we were supposed to learn is that in a civilized society, verbal and cognitive skill counts for more than physical skill. The lesson I learned is that the people populating the ruling classes of American society had decided violence was no longer a concern for them. They were never going to face a physical challenge. Instead, theirs would be a life of verbal jousting, while someone else guarded the walls. Later, I came to understand that they did not even think much about the walls or the people guarding them.

This is what I suspect is at the core of the problems vexing America. The Progressive ruling class lives in a world in which real risk, physical risk, is so alien that it may as well not exist. In fact, for them, it does not exist. The worst thing they can face is ostracism, which is why they obsess about the prevailing morality. That’s not a real concern, as long as they are aware of the boundaries. For most of the people in the elite, they have plenty of money, so losing a job is not a threat in the same way it is for the Dirt People.

Nicholas Taleb would say they lack skin in the game, but I don’t think that’s right. These people are not playing a meaningless game. It is very serious to them and they are ruthless in their execution.Those status points they hope to cash in at Davos or Jackson Hole mean everything to them. When Tim Cook walks into the bathhouse in Davos, he wants everyone to know that he is the guy leading the charge to purge dissidents from the internet. It’s important to him that he be seen as the most pious of the pious.

In a world where physical violence is a real possibility, the hierarchy of concern starts at the most personal and works outward to things like financial and reputation risk. In a prior age, the King had to worry about being killed or having his heirs killed. That was a sobering thought that led to a natural conservatism. In the current age, the rulers have no fear of physical violence and little fear of losing their stuff. That leaves them playing a game of school yard politics, in which status is set by words and signalling.

This seems to be the issue with the rising tide of censorship. They keep following a pattern. One platform bans a heretic and then it is a race for all of the others to do the same. Despite the overwhelming support for gun ownership, for example, the ruling class is racing to de-platform anything gun related. It’s monkey see, monkey do, as the Judeo-Puritan ruling class signals to one another their piety and then reacts to those signals with their own acts of piety. They are like lightning bugs on a summer evening.

What never crosses their mind is what could happen if they terrorize the wrong person and he decides to take action. They never think about what could happen if the public begins to turn on them in large numbers. No one in the ruling class thinks about the mob showing up with torches and rope. They don’t even think the mob will show up at the voting booth and cast a protest vote. Instead, they assume bad election results are the doings of gremlins and magic fairies with sinister names like Boris and Natasha.

The world they have created for themselves is one  that is surrounded by high walls and armed men that are invisible to the people inside. It is just assumed that the walls will hold and the guards will never turn their guns on the people inside. It’s never considered because they never think about it. It’s why the silly airheads on Progressive media sites can viciously attack people they claim are Nazis. They never think about the possibility of the person they ruined showing up outside their door looking settle things old school.

This is why they will keep pushing with the censorship. In fact, it is accelerating, as they furiously try to out signal one another in what has become a piety festival among our ruling classes. Some of the girls at Progressive sites, with heads full of rape fantasies, dream of provoking a response, but most simply don’t think a response is possible. They no longer see any humanity in the Dirt People. We’re just here as props in their endless morality plays they stage for one another in the land of the Cloud People.

The term I’ve used with several of the Progressive bent is “getting Jacksonian”. It puzzles them. Before his mother died, she is supposed to have told young Andy to always be willing to settle and square his own disputes because no one else was going to look out him like he would for himself.

I have been surprised that no one thats been ruined by these people has shown up at their house or place of business yet.

Apparently that someone just might do that really hasn’t occurred to them, either.

The piety spiral re censorship prevents them from seeing the totally expected backlash that’s barely gotten started. They also assume there will be no reaction if they manage to steal the election, and then impeach the people’s choice. It’s amazing the country hasn’t risen up against them with extreme violence. Imagine the reaction to losing such a productive President to the machinations of such corrupt vermin.

One small observation. Several months ago “Identity Europa” put up a few stickers and left some leaflets around a community college campus around here. The local Proggie cat ladies went absolutely batshit nuts. Seems there is a lot of room to discretely and harmlessly keep pulling their chains but at the same time playing on their well founded paranoia that there are a lot more of us out there than they think. But since they are the ones triple crowning themselves in public on Facebook every day but we’re not—the info asymmetry is to our advantage.

Carlsdad, what you describe happens because the conservatives you refer to have more in common with the lefties than they do with you and the rest of us. They like them more and they fear them more.

(I used to put scare quotes around “conservatives” to distinguish fake. scare-quote conservatives from real ones. I’ve decided that’s a pointless exercise.)

Some conservatives can be red-pilled, and that’s a very worthwhile effort, I think. Since, as you say, lefties are not going to change, I wonder if trolling them is accomplishes much.

When you can make lefties lose their shit at parties right in front of a crowd of normies it does have an effect. I usually start out with debating as if I’m going to change their mind. Typical lefties don’t know their subjects very well – so they get sucked in to a point where I can then start screwing with their logic and pissing them off.

Theres another point worth mentioning. Trolling requires a voice, and some publicity for the over-the-top response to it. How will this be achieved once you are deplatformed, debanked and unable to transact or earn a living, when no one covers anything you do except falsely? Those measures can be seen forming now and being implemented.

An excellent article about mass, nonviolent resistance:
https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/libya/2014-06-16/drop-your-weapons

Excerpt: Civil resistance does not succeed because it melts the hearts of dictators and secret police. It succeeds because it is more likely than armed struggle to attract a larger and more diverse base of participants and impose unsustainable costs on a regime. No single civil resistance campaign is the same, but the ones that work all have three things in common:
1. they enjoy mass participation
2. they produce regime defections
3. they employ flexible tactics.

All the prepper / gathering guns for the Revolution types are usually totally unaware of the fact that the “rebels” had been screwing with the British for YEARS if not decades before the shooting started at Lexington.

The history of the Revolution did not start on April 19, 1775 – it started many years before. The revolutionaries were “trolling” the British for quite a while before they started shooting them.

hi Paul! That’s not surprising unfortunately. Many women are ‘programmed’ to act/function in that manner..even when they or their children are obviously in direct peril. This goes even without the longstanding indoctrination/programming by both academia/media/”entertainment” to put themselves in a frame where they don’t even identify or love their own race and culture anymore.

While I was raised in a liberal household and knew nothing about firearms, my husband was an army brat with a lifelong interest in wars and weaponry. His initial single firearm has multiplied exponentially, and our older son taught me to shoot. Put a few hundred rounds downrange yesterday and didn’t do too badly. Our “preps” are limited by financial and other concerns, and I certainly expect to rely on stronger, smarter, and tougher men for my long-term defense, but I plan on taking as many bad guys as possible with me, by my own efforts, when the time comes.… Read more »

Yet Viking history is chock-a-block with Viking women going out onto the battlefield bellowing that their men are all cowards and shaming them into fighting. For example, the first disastrous settlement in Newfoundland, when the Indians nearly overwhelmed the stockade and the wife of the rather colorless leader strode out and did exactly that.

But then, Viking women had one investment genetic and otherwise. They could not hedge their options and so went all in.

So basically they need to see a little of their own blood. Metaphorically speaking, how would that happen? Make them experience the same ruination or loss of professional income like the ones they deplatform?

Or real blood like a few antifa protestors saw recently. More than likely this and much worse the way things are going. How it ends?

It’s not necessarily limited to ‘blood.’ A taste of the bankruptcies, or a 50-60% cut in their incomes, like what happened to the industrial middle class in the Great Recession, would also be useful.

The cultural connection is emphasis on Old Testament militancy, rather than New Testament cooperation.

The economic connection is the slave shipping trade between Cuba and Boston.

A cultural corollary would be early Islam.
Arabs mistook a mediator, NT Jesus, for a bloody general, OT Joshua. That’s why they see Issa’s Crucifixion as either a fraud or a defeat.

Jesus himself was trying to mediate the quiet civil war between Hebrew speakers who advocated Arafat-style violent revolt, and Greek-speaking urban Jews who preferred Roman stability.

I think everybody was just waiting for someone else to take the lead. The Right needs to always remember that the Left doesn’t require open collusion or direct communication in order to organize collective action. That may happen sometimes, because the Left is also lazy and careless, but most of the time it’s just individuals and institutions acting with a common goal. The best way to defeat them is to make… Read more »

Absolutely right, that’s it exactly.
That’s exactly how it works.

I DO NOT want us to be herded into a justifiable, target-rich pen. A turkey shoot.

The 2A isn’t going to unmix our country or bring the Rapture. We’d best be satisfied with making them back off the pressure, to get some breathing room in a wicked world.
Then it’s time to knock the struts from out of their bridges.

I think when they impeach trump, they will be surprised by the hundreds of thousands of armed men who show up in Washington. They will encourage violence by the police, and then when the police flee in panic from actual violence. They will beg trump for protection from the mob. They will not do to trump what they did to Nixon .

A badly rigged election would probably have an even worse backlash since it would install a Democrat.

“What never crosses their mind is what could happen if they terrorize the wrong person and he decides to take action. They never think about what could happen if the public begins to turn on them in large numbers. No one in the ruling class thinks about the mob showing up with torches and rope.”

I suspect they think they have neutralized any means we have to organize, by demonizing militias, infiltrating any “resistance” with their men, and providing enough talking heads that tell us to not resist, just vote.

Cynical take: a lot of the techno-oligarch shitlibs would love to live in a dangerous Brazil-like America.

I mean, shit, CA is already more than halfway there.

It would be virtue signalling and old-fashioned status signalling all at once. So many dark people to help (virtue!), estate walls as thick as the Vatican’s with 24-7 armed guards (status!).

Of course, this doesn’t really contradict Z’s thesis about their “world without consequences,” really reinforces it: the technogarchs FLOAT ABOVE the motley shithole, pretending not to revel in white people being caught up in the maelstrom.

1. The IRA, the Red Brigades, and the SDS attacked public spaces and facilties. They bombed the Dirt people. They were both the spoiled children and the tools of the elite. High and Low against the Middle. I must stress the ‘public spaces’. This is the same mindset of French farmers piling sheep carcasses on train tracks to protest, of Muslim bombs on Spanish trains and London’s Tube. They are trying to provoke a reaction by the public authorities, the Cloud, by attacking the Dirt. This is playing by the rules of the Left. It’s like nerds running to HR… Read more »

I was, ahem, speculating about targeted sabotage. I noticed how vulnerable key pieces of Cloud infrastucture were. Their electrical and comms hardware nodes are accessible from the outside of the building.

I say targeted- specifically targeted- because I DO NOT want a shooting war: the Balkans. They are are trying to herd us into their Balkan trap- because they can’t imagine THEIR lights turned off.

They think that means everybody’s lights will be off. Why should we play by their rules?

3. I also hoped to copy one of their strengths: they all know what needs to happen, nobody needs to issue an order. Swarm attacks, like Silent Sam or polar bear hunts, seem spontaneous. They start with a few texts, and groundswell from there. The Left’s rule would demand shutting down ALL texting. That ‘the authorities do something about disaffected youths’. How about the radical professor’s class curricula be broadcast? Some anonymous VPN doxxed the corrupt judge? Someone’s nightime proclivities get mentioned? How about the repair crew being late when some ‘accident’ happens to a dedicated wireless repeater? The agency… Read more »

“…Despite the overwhelming support for gun ownership, for example, the ruling class is racing to de-platform anything gun related. It’s monkey see, monkey do, as the Judeo-Puritan ruling class signals to one another their piety and then reacts to those signals with their own acts of piety…” Thats good, as sublime as when you coined the whole dirt people verses the cloud people Mr. Zman.

I like the “Judeo-Puritan” term because it acknowledges that our enemies are actually two separate cooperating teams. The Judeo team is motivated by ethnocentrism and an historical hatred of whites while the Puritan team is low in ethnocentrism, high in naive universalism that is unique to whites, eager to amass wealth by any means, and fanatically enforces the cultural ethics generated by the Judeo team. To fight each team effectively, we must keep these differences in mind.

I think the leftist ‘elite media’ were sincerely surprised at how widespread the agreement was with Trump’s calling fake news media the enemy of the people. They simply can’t believe that 60%+ of the country see the globalist elite in those terms. They are the enemy. Censorship is deeply offensive to a democratic people. Trump will act to reverse it within a couple weeks. Let’s not forget how the authoritarian cloud vermin tried to steal the 2018 midterms.

Zman, you did the snotty prep school brat a great favor when you smashed his face into a locker. For probably the first time in his life, he got reality based feedback and (hopefully) learned a valuable life lesson. Parents that raise their children in a sheltered environment absent this kind of reality training are actually guilty of child abuse. Otherwise, this arrogant young snot may later in life encounter someone less lenient and experience a terminal lesson.

One thing not mentioned here is that a lot of those doing the most furious signalling are not old money holier-than-thou types. As Z has mentioned in the past, the newcomers are the ones who feel the need to prove that they are part of the cult. Causing the most trouble are working-class people who have been taught to be ashamed of where they come from and adopt phoney bourgeois posturing and parrot the lines of those they wish to be like. The church used to provide the working-class with a feeling of wealth and sophistication one day a week.… Read more »

Funny you say that. I red-pilled my plumber starting about 2 years ago when he began grizzling about his bitchy fat wife who he suspected was cheating. Dropped a few hate-truths on him and his jaw dropped. He paid her off, she moved in with the boyfriend (who then kicked her out), started seeing a younger babe and business has never been better.

Further, justice must be meted out to the traitors who have raped and betrayed this country, otherwise they will lay low awhile and come roaring back at the first opportunity.

A very effective technique to bring bloviating bureaucrats, elected and otherwise, back down to reality, would be the administration of a vigorously applied “pink belly”, reminiscent of middle school days. I would gladly volunteer, with a few other 60 somethings, to hold down John Brennan for example, in public, and paddle the old blowhard’s blubbery belly. No real bodily harm, just a good dose of embarassment and helplessness.
