Naivete About The System

Image
I confess something right here and now. It isn't new, but it is just more pronounced these days.
I am extraordinarily naive.
I am thoroughly impressed by the way those working so dutifully in the World System so imaginatively, so industriously, and so diabolically do their noble work in the service Cain's legacy. I mean it is truly stunning when you think about it. That they can convince so many people in the most powerfully hypnotic ways to adopt principles originating in the deepest reaches of Hell is indeed an awesome thing.
The racialist and coronavirus hysteria seems to be reaching newer heights every day. And that isn't even the genius of the Ops. It is in distracting everyone from the more significant things happening that simply have to be seasoning the planet for Christ's return. Remember the kings of the east? China has got to be slavering over the way Americans are eating their own with their harrowing Stepford bleats that their neighbors must be racists deserv…

The Cancel Culture's Pathodicy

Image
The recent thread of these blog posts has included an introduction to the concept pathodicy, the firm consideration that I must have my negative feelings about another's suffering addressed by employing government force to fix that suffering just so I can feel better. It is the main reason the leftist social agenda is marauding through our country right now, the reason it has ever eviscerated the lives and livelihoods of so many.

Those pathodicies have fully metastasized in large part because the Trump resistance movement has found some semblance of a way to derail his re-election chances by destroying the economy through a mass media cyberbullying campaign of incessantly pounding coronavirus and racialist hysteria.

Recently I'd been posting some thoughts about this "cancel culture" and how it has become virtually intolerable with the news that a top editor at The New York Times resigned because of its effects.

But I have to add a post to emphasize something that is…

What To Do With the Stupid Ideas of the Cancel Culture

Image
I can't neglect to put in a follow-up post to my last one from just yesterday about how many hifalutin public figures put out a whiny letter in a major magazine issue telling us all that bad ideas need to be talked down, and how pointless that strategy is in confronting certain ideas.

A very good friend shared with me the video below and it is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. What makes it so wonderful is that every single one of the ideas he ridicules is not just a bad idea, but a stupid idea. Some of them are just flat-out monumentally stupid. (Oops, probably shouldn't have used the word "monumentally" there because that may trigger someone who dislikes monuments that may have been erected with some racist motivations...)


So yeah, what do we do with stupid ideas? Yes, it might actually be quite justified to allow them to float about only so we may all heap the requisite amount of ribald mockery upon them. Really, makes life worthwhile, it r…

Cancel Culture Eats Another of Its Own

Image
Bari Weiss, top opinion editor at The New York Times, resigned today.

Why is this story so major? It is because apparently Weiss was striving to be a mitigating force against the marauding leftist spiritual violence that has devastated this country. It seems she too was on the side of many of those hifalutin people who were on board with this widely publicized letter in Harper's all about dialing back the vitriol against anyone not at the farthest left flank of the ideological spectrum.

These Harper's letter people were essentially saying "We must fight bad ideas with talking them out, and the cancel culture is keeping people from exercising their freedom of speech even if their ideas are repulsive."

That was the idea anyway. It is a claim made by those on the right, also, this idea that "Let's just respect freedom of speech OKAY?!"

There is a very pronounced problem with that, one that those on the left at least understand as misguided as they may be.…

Another Slavery Beyond Juneteenth, One of the Most Crushing (and Necessary)

Image
An item showed up in a Facebook post about someone who fears. When you read this brief part of a longer passage, you'll see why the witch hunt is so frightening. It is obvious that a key element of the racialist crusade is to ferociously perpetuate the greatest anxiety in the hearts of whites as a punishment for all the racist crimes the crusaders have been spotlighting for optimum virtue-signaling.

Anyway, here it is, the conclusion to a piece about the insane things that make up the roiling racialist and coronavirus hysteria:

"If you are silent you are part of the problem. If you speak, you are part of the problem. If you have to ask, you don’t understand. If you don’t ask, you don’t care. It’s all so predictable, tedious, and exhausting. Nothing adds up. It’s one gigantic math life problem, with ever changing denominators that I’m sure the media and politicians are eagerly ready to solve for us... until the next 'crisis.'"
What a terrific explanation of the con…

A Tale of Two NASCAR Drivers

Image
I love NASCAR racing. I actually like all auto racing. I love fast cars and fast car drivers duking it out on the speedway. When you have a favorite driver, even if you're picking a couple of them to win a ten-lap race at the local race track, it is a blast. Sometimes you're sadly disappointed, other times it is wonderfully exhilarating when your guy or gal wins.

NASCAR is probably the most popular circuit out there right now, but I'd bet it's popularity will dwindle because of the racialist attacks against its most faithful fans. The sport has already seen a noticeable drop in attendance and viewership much because it has become too tied to identity politics. I mean, really, some people can only be called a bunch of racist rednecks so much.

If you saw what happened this past Sunday, it wouldn't be surprising to see the stands remain empty even after the coronavirus hysteria has eased up a bit more and a few more fans are welcomed back to the tracks to watch races …

The Slavery Beyond Juneteenth

Image
June 19th, or "Juneteenth," has come and gone, along with another splendid opportunity for devout leftist SJWs to bully anyone they think was, is, or will always be a part of the particular brand of slavery they revile. Recently Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation wrote an excellent piece about the slavery these people refuse to see, and it made me think.

It made me think about the rampant slavery out there going full bore today, and how much the sniveling obsession with the racist slavery of the antebellum period is severely constricting the ability to see what should be addressed. The claim what happened 150 years ago is a sort-of slavery still existing today in the form of white privilege and systemic racism is mostly a fantasy used to rationalize the worst socialist policy, one that is indeed rocketing forward at warp speed on the strength of institutionalized shaming on steroids.
Here are a few of the slaveries still around today, yet rarely get broadcast, much le…
