Radish defends slavery

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

As usual, good reactionary stuff.

You favor abolishing welfare: What do propose to do with all the able bodied people that are too lazy or too violent or have too short a time preferance to hold down a job?

Once upon a time, such people were put on the chain gang. Progressives did not like private individuals owning slaves, but they just love governments owning slaves. Look how they loved communist china, and look how bitterly outraged and indignant they became when the Chinese government realized that most people do better work as employees, rather than slaves.

The Men’s Rights Activist program is real equality for men and women, wherein women make their own decisions and take the consequences of their own decisions.  It is a logically consistent and libertarian position, but can never be an emotionally consistent position because it is a cold, callous, nasty, hateful position that no one believes in, no one supports, a position that can never be popular.

The only logically and emotionally consistent position.that can ever be popular, is Pauline male supremacism, male supremacism in accordance with the doctrines of Saint Paul the Apostle, a position that condescends to women gently and affectionately..

Don’t be a Men’s Rights Activist.  Be a Male Supremacist.  It is more likely to be politically successful, and you are more likely to get laid. (more…)

Fed has no gold

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Supposedly, the Federal Reserve has mountain of gold, seven thousand tonnes stashed in various places in the US.  By an astonishing coincidence, it owes banks in other nations seven thousand tonnes of gold.

The Fed owes the German government fifteen hundred tonnes of gold.  Germany asked for its gold back.  The  Fed did not want to give it.  So Germany asked for three hundred tonnes of gold back.  The fed agreed, in principle, to return three hundred tonnes of Germany’s gold – over seven years.

Why so long?

This only makes sense is the fed has considerably less than three hundred tonnes left and they hope to quietly purchase three hundred tonnes over the next  seven years using freshly printed money.  Stalling is going to create fear.  If the fed is stalling, it can only be because it has absolutely no alternative but to stall.

Recall the bank run scene in “It’s a wonderful life”.  Imagine if the bankers had said, “No problem, we have your money, but, alas, due to postal delays and that our clerks a bit slow counting it is going to take seven years.”

Courage and Nerdliness

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

The Audacious Epigone reminds us of the courage of John Derbyshire who told us:

To the dissident, the only thing worth pondering about the proposition is, is it true? If it is, then no king’s command can falsify it; and if it is not, then not even the assent of a hundred million will make it true.

Predictably, one year after he said this, he was persecuted for speaking truth to power.

The dissident, therefore, has disturbing characteristics in common with the nerd, in fearlessly pursuing obscure knowledge that is of little personal use to him, or likely to be actively harmful to him.  Who could be nerdlier than Stephen McIntyre of Climate Audit?

But, on the other hand, Steve McIntyre defeated the united forces of the state, academia, and the scientific establishment by exposing the hockey stick fraud.  After seven years of struggle, in 2012 October, the scientific establishment quietly decided that no further hockey sticks shall be published or publishable, and quietly conceded that the medieval climatic optimum happened.   He won, the entire marshaled and united forces of official science lost.  He is now pursuing mopping up operations to get the worst offenders punished.  They are unlikely to be punished, but that they are discredited (and thus all of official science discredited) is implicitly admitted by the retreat.  There is something not very nerdly about such a victory.

Students against a democratic society

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Excerpts from Carlyle, predicting social decay, in the context of today’s headlines showing social decay.

But, as Carlyle observed, in 1848, most of the Kings ran away at the first whiff of gunpowder. He hoped that they might be replaced by a sterner breed of Kings. They are not showing up yet. But, if enough people reject democracy, equality, and all that, perhaps they will.

But I don’t think so. I am with Froude, who longed for the return of pirates, rather than Kings, who recollected the good old days when Britain failed to notice that its colonialists were bandits, and continued to fail to notice their transition from mobile bandits to stationary bandits.

Law of conservation of pussy

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

Reading the manosphere blogs, I notice a lot of husbands complaining that their wife has sex with them once a month, and, of course, no end of nice guys getting no sex at all.

A fertile age woman generally has sex at least once a week. As Saint Paul observed, few people have the capacity for continence, whether male or female. So if husband is not getting any, chances are that someone else is getting a piece of his wife. It is not in a woman’s nature to be content with sex once a month.

The law of conservation of pussy is that if some men are not getting some, other men must be getting a lot. (more…)

Guns, murder, and race

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Stolen from the comment section of Steve Sailer’s excellent blog.

Someone who wishes to remain anonymous has assembled data showing that American whites murder at about the same rate as whites in countries with strict gun control, American “Hispanics” murder at about the same rate as they do in their native countries, which generally have strict gun control, and that American blacks murder at about the same rate as blacks do world wide, mostly in countries with strict gun control.

The main factor by far in homicide rates is race. (more…)

Puritanism, progressivism, and entertainment

Saturday, January 5th, 2013

I have been watching the English dubbed Japanese anime “Speed Grapher”, which is pretty good except for the horrendously heavy handed propaganda.

In the anime, money is revolting, immoral and disgusting, sex is revolting, immoral and disgusting, and male sexual pleasure obtained at the expense of females (there being no such thing as male sexual pleasure obtained with female pleasure) is the most utterly disgusting, revolting, and abhorrent of them all.  There is no such thing as entrepreneurship or capital formation.  Rich people get rich by stealing it, and/or prostituting women against their will.  Rich people do not save, invest, or create.  They somehow profit by creating financial crises.  And, did I mention, all sex in the anime is disgusting, especially heterosex (with the exception of one chick that has a good time killing and raping) (more…)
