The Struggle Continues

In the business world, a regular topic of conversation is the cost-benefit analysis to solving business problems. It is easy to see that you don’t solve a fifty dollar problem with a million dollar solution, but most problems are not so simple. Figuring out the real cost of the problem is not so easy and then imagining the solution adds a whole new layer of complexity. One of the ironies of problem solving is figuring out the cause of the problem can cost more than the problem itself.

Watching the election shenanigans roll on, it seems that the ruling class may have created an expensive problem while trying to solve the Trump problem. The wholesale election fraud has created a very expensive problem for them. They cannot sit back and let Trump’s lawyers find examples of fraud or use those examples to overturn one of the disputed states, as that creates a big problem for them. Joe Biden becomes the Pretender Biden for most of the country.

On the other hand, the only way to prevent any of this is to double down on the shenanigans in all of these states. That means threatening judges, lawyers and election officials. It means more midnight capers to alter the rules and results. In other words, the way to prevent Trump from establishing his claims is to prove another set of claims. They will convince a large number of people that the whole system is rigged and controlled by thugs and crooks.

This is a managerial class feature. A group of experts identify a problem, real or imagined, then set about solving it. In the process, they create a whole new set of problems that require a new set of experts to solve. That new set of experts are conveniently the proteges of the first set of experts. This cycle has rolled through the culture since the middle of the last century. It now appears to be consuming the system that makes the managerial class possible.

It is remarkable, when you think back over the last five years. They could have easily co-opted Trump, by cutting some deals with him. He would have put the MAGA stamp of approval on things like DACA, higher immigration levels and big new administrative initiatives, in exchange for some trinkets like the wall project. Instead, they cut off their nose to spite their face. It is insane and suggests that maybe they are the victims of the same process that has consumed the Trump movement.

Myth’s aside Australia was always the closes thing on earth to a space colony in that it was never really self sufficient and did not organically develop. Instead, from the beginning it was a colony entirely dependent on the mother country. It started as literal prison for christ sake.

That general dependency continued even as it became economically viable. It’s always been an urbanized colonial enclave in a foreign land.

I ask what’s worse, slavery in 1800 or prison in 2020

and prison is a form of slavery

I can only surmise that because blacks like going to prison so much and welfare dependency they never lost the slave mentality. Probably why they are always angry, the knowledge of their true selves at war with what they want the world to believe about them only wanting freedom

Hah!

And makes sense that people in a former penal colony never gave up their slave mentality

Have never visited. I’m sure it’s a fascinating country. I recall a pictoral article about a small factory (mining?) town way out in the middle of the desert, nothing else visible in all directions to the horizon, save by the coming and going of the rail line, its sole connection to the outside world. You’d be hard pressed to find something as isolated even in America’s desert west.

One of my daughters has a friend down in Australia. The girl seems to be mostly dependent on the state and nobody seems to think it is unusual. She lives like a child — no particular responsibilities, needs met through no effort of her own, enough money from somewhere to go out and have some fun occasionally. I think that’s the way they want us.

Kicking out the cheap labor certainly will open up jobs and ought to be done. However the numbers might not be as great in some countries.

Second, higher wages don’t pencil out for some things like restaraunts unless that society is willing to let wages go up across the board. This is something that needs to happen, wages exceeding inflation by a hefty margin if we ever want to see above replacement fertility but there are a lot of reasons it can’t happen.

The most dramatic change occurred after the Port Arthur shooting was used as a pretext for door-to-door gun confiscation. It got quite nasty at times and the propaganda outlets there had a total blackout on what was going on although word got out.

Gun ownership was quite common prior to the mid-Nineties. After those confiscations, it is near zero outside of places here and there. The people became utterly cowed and submission in short order. It is among the reasons the Covid compliance here has bothered me so much.

I know some Kiwis. It’s literally a country of Karens and woke White guys. It’s bizarre.

At the moment, the whole country is the equivalent of a gated community, which, of course, is why the silliness can flourish. But they seem intent on following the rest of Western world down the toilet by opening the immigrant fire hose, though they likely will import an over class (Chinese and Indians) than an underclass, so there’s that.

Some years back, a Danish back-bencher was sent on some cross-planet junket where she visited a New Zealand naval base. As she arrived, she was treated to a “traditional New Zealand Welcome” – her native guide admonishing her in advance not to laugh. When she came back, she wrote a humorous little fluff piece about how she’d experience the “uncivilized and grotesque” spectacle of half-naked navy personnel jumping around, screaming at her and sticking their tongues out. The story got back to NZ and the Kiwi internet exploded in offense-taking. It was troll heaven. The amazing part was that so… Read more »

To think, some colleagues of mine think that they will ‘escape’ to Australia. Quite frankly, these days you may have a better chance of a new life if you had been a transported convict on the First Fleet back in 1788.

They’ve gone nuts. One can only hope the ‘bogan’ settlements in the interior don’t get infected with the poz. We ought not to be surprised: most people in the cities love the poz with all their hearts. Rural community, Urban evacuation is a must for those sane folk who can.

Somewhere else in this comment section, a link to a Zero Hedge article was included that discussed “The Great Reset”, which, I suppose, is a euphemism for “White replacement”. This is all over the Western world. So, I have to wonder, how does China play into all of this? I understand that our Rulers are actively destroying Western civilization via mass immigration, but where does China fit in to all of this? Will war with China be inevitable, or is China already part of the cabal?

Exactly. I’ve heard multiple interviews over the months wrt COVID-19 deaths within families. Always they end with, “If only others wore ‘the mask’…”. Never any mention of the “victims” behavior—not that I’m blaming the the unfortunate soul who perished—only that it seems odd. Every COVID case I directly had contact with, or direct knowledge of, has had a vector that they’ve welcomed into the victim’s presence. For example, the last one a couple weeks ago was a grandson visiting grandma (90 y/o) in grandma’s home—when he was running a fever!

“If only others had worn the mask.” Right. 99.6% of the population has been wearing these idiotic Karen Kloths, not to mention social distancing and sanitizing their skins off, 24/7 since March, and the fault lies with the .4% who exhibit common sense.

The repressed Danish study has finally been released—as if all here have not heard. Long and short—no statistical difference between contraction wearing mask and not wearing mask (1.8% vs 2.1%).

However, we seem to be our own worse enemy wrt over-stating the results. The study does not address the effect of an “infected” person transmitting the disease while wearing the mask—and that really is the objection we all have here.

No disagreement here. I’ve always stated that death wrt oldsters should be evaluated in “lost years” of remaining anticipated life. So that infections and death may be put into proper societal perspective. A human life is *not* of infinite value, and *all* human life is not equal. (And like I’m really old here, so I have skin in this game. 😉 ) This is not unlike wrongful death torts where a dead father of a young family is worth significantly more $$$ in compensation than a young child or an old retiree.

Exactly. Vizz. Their shame quickly converts to anger. They did everything right but “some people!” refuse to follow the rules, wear a mask, etc. they are, after all, the goodwhites. Its all too convenient that the kkkovid kompliance delineation tracks the goodwhite-deplorable divide. Thus more rules, more punishments for the deplorables. Their suffering is worth it if it means we suffer more. They are noble, selfless victims, we are ignorant, selfish oppressors. Their leftist world is still ordered accordingly.

Communist mindset is different. All ills are caused from people resisting communism. So those suicides are caused not by lockdowns but by people resisting lockdowns. Without resistance , the transforming phase would be passed already and we would live in the Orwellian Gulag paradise, where everybody is happy and nobody commits suicide. Communism is always good and all bad things are caused by people who do not let communists do what they want.

[insert currently fashionable adjective] racism is, in my opinion, just the Egalitarians tip-toeing around the elephant in the room, the we-dare-not-speak-of-it fact, that yes racism exists, it’s a fundamental aspect of human nature, and (worst of all for them!) race is real, racial differences are real, and ultimately, inequality at the outset makes the goal of equality impossible.

In the US racism exists alright. Almost all of it is directed at whites. But, Leftist intellectuals, going at least as far back as Marx, have made a habit of generating new theory to explain the failure of people or discrete groups of people to behave in the manner they predict or prescribe. The notion of “false consciousness” (and systemic racism) are prime examples. Leftists hate it when people are happy and content when they “should” be miserable and outraged.

I think that Z has missed a paradigm shift. Covering up the fraud to maintain the respectability of the system was the old paradigm – which required a lot of leg work, created unintended consequences and risked exposure. The new paradigm is just denying reality. It requires tight coordination of media and a high degree of gullibility for a large percentage of the general public. Both of which exist in America today. So the Dems flat out steal the election in a ham handed way and then their media jesters waiver their hands and say there’s nothing to see here,… Read more »

My guess is, based on talking to some normies I know, that people know politics is kind of dirty.

They could have easily co-opted Trump, by cutting some deals with him.  As you may have seen here in my comments and in pieces I have written elsewhere, this is what perplexes me most. Why didn’t they co-opt Trump? It would have made the movement he spawned so much less potent. He could have been easily manipulated but, nah bro, they made a really bad enemy in him. Perhaps they were afraid Trump would discover things he apparently never found out or revealed. Maybe it wasn’t a rational reason at all.

I think the reason they didn’t co-opt Trump is part of the reason the Never Trump issue of National Review was written. They truly hate both him and us. They think he is vulgar and doesn’t share their tastes. It was also embarrassing to them the way we rejected the establishment choices in 2016 and they were angry at the way Rubio and Jeb got humiliated. They want to crush us so it never happens again. They aren’t forward thinking enough to see what problems will develop from these choices.

It’s a brutal thing to say but – anything taken over by women goes to complete shit.

Whenever you hear an “expert” predicting that 6 gorillion people are going to die in your town of 10,000 next month chances are it’s a young chick who’s sorta-kinda good at math but is really good at making scary looking graphs on the computer.

I would just add that the situation is greatly agitated by the Usual Suspects who will whip up this racial animosity at each and every chance. If it weren’t for this 5th Column constantly telling blacks (and others!) how aggrieved and oppressed they are, then things would be much better.

We need to tell the blacks and browns how Israel is severely oppressing their brothers in Palestine and other Muslim countries … and has been doing it for years!. Try to use this as a wedge issue inside the Left. Demand that Israel make concessions!

Just wanted to double-down on my last comment concerning racial animosity.

This is exactly the reaction that the Jews are looking for … they want to foment this racial disharmony so that they can use it as fuel for more animosity. I caution people about falling into this trap of doing their bidding for them.

White America fought a civil war to release Blacks from slavery. Everyone knows that things are perfect, but since the Jews started meddling in our society, it’s steadily gotten worse. Know where the problem comes from.

It is quite the experience listening to a guy like Sam Harris lay this out in very explict terms. His argument basically starts from a premise where we are pre-existing people that through nothing but pure luck just happened to be born in America or England or wherever.
He has to be knowingly lying. He knows he is deceiving people. He is too smart to not know.
It is such a ridiculously bad argument. It’s hard to believe anyone falls for it, even if it’s what they want to hear.

Is anyone else finding themselves more or less indifferent to all this election stuff? Like, I haven’t been paying attention to it at all. I’m just numb to it. It all reeks of 4D chess, Qtards and other trust-the-plan types. The Four Seasons Landscaping debacle was cringe-inducing. I’m not holding my breath for a second. Downvote away, but I’m just being honest. Tucker apparently called out Powell for a crumb of evidence the other night and was rebuked. I’m beginning to understand why normies just want to chill and grill. It’s exhausting. Perhaps that’s the intent.

Here in FL, I am in an all-electric home with an ageing heat pump. Like you, I rarely heat in the winter. Cooling is virtually the only system use, costing about 40% of total electric. Recently I considered replacing the system. I checked prices etc. I discovered two things: the higher cost for the higher efficiency SEER systems is not worth it (30 year payback time, for a system with a life expectancy of 10-15 years!); if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I’ll keep my current fossil system, minor repairs as needed, until it dies a horrible death 🙂

Of course, if they were at all forward-thinking, there would have been studies of the MTBF of those cables and plans for replacing them well before that, plus emergency plans for quick replacement if a cable broke ahead of schedule, because that sort of planning ahead is, obviously, less expensive than the utter destruction of one of the world’s largest radio telescopes.

The seven-part track is based on a story by Peart, the band’s primary lyricist, who credits “the genius of Ayn Rand” in the album’s liner notes.

It may also refer to Samuel Delaney’s Nova where it’s a performing instrument, sort of a cross between a musical synthesizer and the Enterprise’s Holodeck.

I too think Camp of the Saints is a disgusting book. It’s a book every thinking person should read, to be sure, but I could not finish it. It’s gross and uncomfortably black-pilling, but it’s also prophetic. It was written in 1973, and it is happening today. The oddest thing about this otherwise spot-on book is that in it the obtruders are (dot) Indians, whereas in real life they are African, Latinos, Muslims and East Asians–everyone except Indians!

They’ve been told to hate us in accordance with the tenets of Cultural Marxism, which replaces ecomonic class distinctions with majority & minority distinctions. Classical Marxism teaches that the upper class exploits the lower class. Cultural Marxism teaches that the majority oppresses the minority, and so there is a social injustice in this arrangement. So, in so many words, Whites are the oppressors, and by definition, are evil in the exercise of said oppression. Of course, this dogma relies on people believing that Whites are basically evil and have been taking advantage of their majority status for hundreds of years.

Karma is not, as commonly believed, merely getting what you deserve. That’s an over-simplification. Instead, karma accululates from deeds (good or bad) in a prior life, now affect you in the present life (for good or bad). In other words, right now you could be a thoroughly evil person yet still be blessed in all ways (because of postive karma from a prior existence), or vice versa. Buddhism, of course, advocates good… Read more »

I used to bomb comments at Reason until the great exodus 4 years ago. I don’t even bother peeking in there any more. About that time, they lost a lot of their contributors and sold out to the Koch’s.

Some updated advice from Howard: I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s worth; banks small business are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks antifa and BLM are running wild in the street, and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the covid air is unfit to breathe and our genetically modified food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching… Read more »

Speaking of cost benefit analysis, how deep are we in the red on “solving” our negro problem, the gift that keeps on taking? Abe Lincoln’s repatriation plan seems very fiscally prudent in retrospect.
