The Eloi State

Note: The weekly Taki post is up. It ties in with the post this week. Sunday Thoughts, the weekly podcast for the elect, is up behind the green door. If for some reason you did not notice it, I was on with RamZPaul Saturday and you can listen that here.


A truth learned from the study of economics is that competition between suppliers tends to create better products and services. Better in the economic context does not always mean more innovative or better quality. Sometimes the better product is simply more cost effective than the alternatives. The Wintel computer was never the technologically superior option, but it was the most cost effective. Competition often arrives at the solution that is merely good enough.

On the other hand, when companies or industries are able to shield themselves from competition they tend to decline in quality. The prices creep up as the quality and selection declines. The domestic car makers in America experienced this in the middle of the last century. By the 1970’s, their cars were silly and unreliable. Competition from overseas forced them to compete and that made for better cars. Competition is the economic equivalent of accountability.

The time traveler in the H. G. Wells novel The Time Machine observed that “It is a law of nature we overlook, that intellectual versatility is the compensation for change, danger, and trouble.” A corollary is that responsibility and a sense of duty is the compensation for accountability. A natural consequence of accountability is a duty and obligation to the rules under which you operate. When you are held accountable for your actions, you act in private as if the world is watching.

We see this in the whole “go woke, go broke” meme. The fact that none of these woke firms go broke is the important piece. That is the reason corporate America is rushing to embrace the most absurd things. They know they will never be held accountable for their actions, so they have no duty to the rest of us. The people who made the perverted Twix commercial did it because it costs them nothing. Mars is a massive global enterprise immune from the marketplace.

The tech sector is the most obvious example. They have spent decades colluding with one another to suppress wages and deny people their civil rights because they never have to worry about consequences. They may compete with one another at the fringes, but in essence they are a cartel with monopoly power. It is not as if you are going to build your own internet. The market forces we think should exits to hold these firms accountable no longer exists, so they do as they please.

This has been true of politics for a long time. The CIA put out a report in the late 1980’s claiming that the Soviet Union is getting stronger due to the massive success of the Gorbachev reforms. A few months later the Soviet empire collapsed. No one was ever held accountable. In fact, it is fair to say that the power of the Soviets had been overstated for generations. No one was ever held to account, so this was pushed aside with the other lies and blunders.

More recently, many of the same characters were involved in selling the world on the great Muslim threat. The West was turned into a police state because the Muslims wanted to impose Islam-o-fascisms on us. Trillions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives were spent on a problem that never existed. Since no one would ever be held accountable for the result, not one felt a duty to be right. They just made up whatever would benefit them at the moment.

Even closer to home, there was a local election last week that got national attention as a referendum on the parties. The Virginia governor race was a big success for the Republicans, who immediately used their new political capital to fink on their voters and support the other side. They did it because they know they will never be held accountable for it. Politics is now entirely immune from the marketplace of ideas, so there is no accountability and therefore no responsibility.

We see the same thing in the media. For half a decade they sold the Russian conspiracy hoax to the public. The recent indictments shows that they knew it was a lie when they were selling it. Everyone involved knew it was fake. No one will resign in disgrace or offer a tearful apology. They simply laugh and move onto the next hoax they are told to peddle. There is no shame because there is no accountability. What are you going to do, build your own mass media?

The lack of shame is perhaps the final stage. A reckless disregard for duty can still elicit shame, even if the person knows they will never be held accountable. Once this lack of accountability is normalized, morality collapses. Without morality, there can be no shame, which is what we see with the media. They are shameless because the people in the media no longer possess the normal moral coding. If they have a moral code at all, it is based in a disdain for the rest of us.

The central question posed by The Time Machine is whether life can go on without struggle and if so, should it? The two halves of future humanity, the Elois and Morlocks were scarcely human. They had reached a point where they had conquered the necessary conditions of human civilization. Once struggle had been eliminated, the skills to win the struggle atrophied. What the time traveler observed was not the apex of humanity, but the end of it.

A similar question can be asked about the collapse of accountability. Can a society survive when the people in charge of it are no longer responsible for it? The climax of the Enlightenment project appears to be a world in which the people at the top have finally been insulated from all accountabilities. Oddly, they are the Eloi ruling over the Morlocks, feckless children oppressing what they view as the lesser beasts. Is this the apex of Western civilization or the end of it?

There is some truth in those statements but I think its reductive. Most ADA’s want the benefits or have a righteousness that drove them to law school. They tend to adopt the states morality as their own, even when they have misgivings, which is the scary part. Movies about high profile prosecutions while dramatized do tend to get this often correct. It can be the same in private practice, its the nature of the beast, but it seems less pronounced.

Doesn’t matter. I think I’ve mentioned before that I used to have a job that involved reading a lot of criminal court transcripts. No American prosecution is even remotely competent. I’ve never seen a case proven—not even close. Often I couldn’t even deduce from the testimony what the criminal act was supposed to be. All guilty. 100%. Not-guilty verdicts are very, very rare. The truly guilty plead out, and the rest get railroaded. Every jury wants to convict, and if the defense’s “narrative of the case” doesn’t *force* them not to do it, they do it. If Kyle’s judge doesn’t… Read more »

This is a crucial yet undiscussed point. I expect that juries are crucially different in this new age of social media, not because they have been made stupider, which they have, but because those who have not been made stupid can be easily identified on the cheap without an extensive investigation. Even a poor prosecutor in a show trial is never going to let me or anyone like me on a jury. You only need one and it is clear we are getting none.

I’m not following the trial, but by inference I’m guessing the witness admitted pointing (and firing?) at defendant. Apparently this individual did not receive very good counsel about the consequences of admitting to committing serious crimes while under oath. May it work to his detriment. 🙂

True. The Chevrolet Vega and the Ford Pinto were “built to a price point” and they showed. The story goes that a simple tank shield, longer fuel filler neck, and better sealing gas cap added to the Pinto would’ve solved the fire issue that plagued the car but Lee Iacocca was adamant the car rollout the door at $1,995. So in the calculus of manufacturing they were left off.

Agreed. I slag on the Pinto and Vega since they were Ford and GM’s attempt to “Push ’em back into the ocean!” with foreign car makers.

But lots of the “Bread and Butter” cars The Big Three made (Midsize, Fullsize, Sporty cars, etc.) were wretchedly built.

(This is a comment on the Taki post). Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical “Hamilton” will make sure everyone remembers the Maria Reynolds affair for years to come. Will anyone actually glean the significance of a politician confessing to a sex scandal because of his morals? Probably not. The show has some spectacular music in it, but it’s absolute propaganda trying to justify immigration, just like Miranda’s previous musical “In the Heights.”

A prime example of the (literally) ill effects of stifled competion by government monopoly is are most, if not all, of the current medical products authorized against COVID-19. To obtain approval for an emergency use authorization (EUA), there must be no other approved treatment available. For the manufacturer, getting the EUA has two benefits: in the first place, is that once approved, it is a de-facto monopoly market as long as the EUA holds; second is the extra, near total indemnity against any legal liability whatsoever for its product. Perhaps the regulations as originally written were done with high purpose… Read more »

As Zman notes, these multinational companies are theoretically competing with one another, but how does Coke or Pepsi’s marketing or target market differ from one another? They both aim at the younger cohort which is over 50% non-White. Many of people’s taste preferences are set early (Mexicans put soda in baby bottles) so for whom are they ‘competing’?… Read more »

In both cases reforms weakened key fail safe points in the name of speed and innovation and created a culture of risk taking.

I believe this to be true based on personal experience . No civilization could possibly survive this level of basic dis-functional madness.
” 29% of younger Millennials (ages 18-25) are counted as having some type of mental disorder. Overall, 54% of those surveyed acknowledged some degree of emotional fragility or even mental illness.
24 out of every 25 Millennials (96%) lack a biblical worldview.
75% say they lack meaning and purpose in life.

According to Ed Dutton, intelligence has declined about 15 points since 1870. The Industrial Revolution starting c. 1800 made life much easier. Infant mortality dropped from 40-50% to 1%. Smart people were more likely to use contraception. Religion, which gives people hope for the future of their children and themselves, declined. Around 2200 average IQ in the West will be about 85. Society will collapse into smaller, more religious, warring units. The robots and AI won’t save us because there won’t be enough smart people to tend to them. See his “At Wits’ End.”

i wonder if the other big companies buying houses indiscriminately are in a similar situation as Willow; i.e. under water on a big chunk of their portfolio. seems like all these companies were kind of circle jerking each other into buying properties at higher and higher “valuations”.

We are being replaced – and not just by non-white immigrants. Amish and other sects are growing very rapidly. Evangelicals and conservative Catholics have quite a few kids too. It’s hard to extrapolate into the future because we don’t know what retention rates will look like, etc. Amish and others are small but when the general population has a low fertility rate and they have a high one, the difference can appear pretty fast, ie. a century. I suspect Evangelical communities that keep out the poz might have increasing influence on large portions of whites. As the secular world becomes… Read more »

The thing about Amish is that the 350,000 today almost all descent from an initial group of 200. Which means they are much more inbred than the average white.

I’m not sure if it’s possible for them to not be tribal. That amount of cousin marriage usually leads to more clannishness, and they’re pretty much bred that way.

100 years is a long time. At some point they might just genocide them because they’re white.

B125: The issue with such smaller, concentrated groups (whether based on religion or whatever) is inbreeding. I know the Amish move people around when certain genetic diseases start cropping up, but when you’re starting with a limited number of people and a certain % is constantly boiling off, it’s a constant problem. The hasidic Juice are heavily inbred – just because they test for genetic diseases and prevent marriages that would result in afflicted children doesn’t change the overall inbreeding (there are more individual carriers of these diseases with one gene, not two, and they’re still horse faced).

Curious. Nietzsche said a lot, but (indirectly) might confirm Dutton. He was down on European (German) culture and liberal democracy. He thought it bred a tame, domesticated man. His famous dictum “God is dead” was not so much to spread atheism, although he was one and detested Christianity. Rather, he meant it in the sense that by the late 19th century, Europe was modern and religion’s role had waned, largely supplanted by democracy. The West’s high valuation of honesty, reflected in rigorous science and philosophical inquiry would, he thought, finally lead to the dissolution even of institutions — decadence and… Read more »

“On the other hand, when companies or industries are able to shield themselves from competition they tend to decline in quality. The prices creep up as the quality and selection declines. The domestic car makers in America experienced this in the middle of the last century. By the 1970’s, their cars were silly and unreliable. Competition from overseas forced them to compete and that made for better cars. Competition is the economic equivalent of accountability.”

These are meaningless surveys conducted for a “news” blurb to fill empty print space or air time or perhaps simply to demoralize an intended audience. Not really science or nascent truth revealed.

> If they have a moral code at all, it is based in a disdain for the rest of us.

several of H G Wells’ stories are apropos for today’s bizarre world: Time Machine, War of The Worlds (progs are the bacteria that brings down the Martians/Western civ), and of course, Island of Dr Moureau (coof, Fauci, etc).

Lovecraft’s, “Nyarlathotep,” and Chamber’s, “The Restorer of Reputations,” are two more pieces with some interesting forward-looking elements.

After reading this, C.S. Lewis’ The Abolition of Man seems more pertinent.

I originally didn’t like “That Hideous Strength” because I thought it was too ham-fisted. Ends up being it was right on the nose with regards to our medical-tyranny.
