State of the Ukraine war.

The ISW (State Department) position is that if America sticks its head up its ass hard enough, the problem will go away. And on past performance, that is what America is going to do.

The ISW, which is the voice of the State Department, complains that

A Ukraine strong enough to deter and defeat any future Russian aggression with an economy strong enough to prosper without large amounts of foreign aid is the only outcome of Russia’s war that the United States and the West should accept

And if an unacceptable outcome happens, like the Ukrainian economy being levelled to the ground, the Ukraine’s army collapsing in attritive warfare, and the Russians installing a Marshall Petain in Kiev?

This is like someone jumping off a cliff and half way to the jagged rocks at the bottom, declaring that the only acceptable outcome is that he lands like a feather.

The last of the Greatest Ukrainian Offensive seems to have ended today, or is ending, with the Ukrainians throwing in the towel at Krynky. Our rulers have been showing internal division, with some of them deciding that the Greatest Ukrainian Offensive ended a long while ago, with the result that Krinky became strangely invisible to them, some of them hailing Krinky as a mighty Ukrainian victory which was about to cause the collapse of Russia and the fall of Putin, and some of them noticing the facts on the ground – that it was a killing field for the Ukrainian army, with life expectancy for troops of a day or so, and highly unlikely to get much further than it had gotten, but producing clever rationalisations that the Russian were hurting even worse.

For some months the Russians have been increasingly on the offensive. And those offensives have been costly. The gains in turf have been absolutely insignificant, something in the ballpark of a square kilometre a day, but the gains in positional advantage for a war of attrition have been significant. When a local Russian offensive succeeds (and it frequently fails) they grab a strong point where the lie of the land and/or human built defences make it strong. And they then have a strong salient poking into weak Ukrainian territory, which becomes a killing field for Ukrainians. And then they cheerfully let the Ukrainians hang out in the killing fields until the Ukrainians decide to leave, whereupon it is time to grab another salient.

So far the Ukrainians have shown absolutely no sign of getting wise to this strategy, though giving up on Krinky may mean it is finally starting to sink in. They tend to hang on to unfavourable turf, and the Russians let them keep it.

The Ukrainian offensive was predicated on the reverse strategy – they would charge through at the weakest point, which was generally between strong points on either side, and then charge forth all the way to the Azov sea, whereupon those strong points, now cut off, would fall like ripe fruit. This was Kagan’s plan. I thought it moronic when he told us, and even more moronic to tell the plan on Youtube months in advance of attempting to carry it out, so the Russians would have lots of time to get ready for it. What predictably happened of course was that the Ukrainans found themselves in trapped in weak point salients surrounded by strong points, and the weak point salients became killing fields.

The Ukrainians seem to have become increasing reluctant to provide Krinky with the fresh cannon fodder it endlessly needs, or are just having some difficulty rounding up fresh cannon fodder.

The reason Krinky has been so bad for the Ukrainians is not because it is a natural weak point – it is just a random point on the delta much the same as everything around it. The problem is that everything has to be supplied in small unarmored boats that have to cross a broad river in plain sight from a long distance away, and these boats cannot carry heavy weapons. And the journey back is even more dangerous, because by the time the small unarmoured boat reaches a drop off points and drops off the latest cannon fodder, it has likely been spotted. Except during heavy rain or snow, it is a one way trip. Also the surface of the river is now turning to icy slush, too strong to drive a boat through, too weak to walk over. The boats creep slowly through the thickening slush. Maybe they have not stopped sending boats to cross the river, the boats may have stopped reaching their destinations.

The Russians have been fighting a war of attrition. The Ukrainians have been stubbornly and unusccesfully attempting to fight a war of movement, on the the instructions of deluded people from Washington. But now the tune is changing to war of attrition, to be followed by negotiations once the Russians are exhausted. Except that it is the Ukrainians that are becoming exhausted.

The killing and dying could continue for years, but the writing is on the wall. It has been on the wall for some time. The armies of the Ukraine might be able to hold the line for years, and then collapse, or months, and then collapse.

This war resembles world war I, a static war of immovable front lines, until one side collapses from attrition, though advancing drone technology and production might change that to drone on drone air warfare, and drone on drone operator air to ground warfare.

The question that remains to be revealed, is how long this goes for before the Ukrainians collapse. Signs of strain are showing. We are seeing the ruling elite, here and in the Ukraine, develop increasing amnesia and blindness, which is how they handle defeats. They unhappen them.

Their current plan, insofar as they have a plan rather than an amnesia attack, is that static warfare should continue, leading somehow to negotiations. But static warfare only leads to negotiations when the losing side realises that their negotiating position is very bad and is only going to change for the worse. And, during war, information channels that could lead to that realisation tend to get shut down.

War is a test of will and capability. Maximum will is akin to madness, but is not madness at all. What, however, we tend to observe in practice, is madness substituted for will. Rational conduct would be, once will and capability was revealed, to negotiate a peace based on what was revealed. This seldom happens in practice, and with the kind of reality blind elite we have now, even less likely to happen. Collective sanity is harder than individual sanity, because collective action is harder than individual action, and wars tend to happen because on or both sides are incapable of acting as a single cohesive unitary rational individual.

World War I started because Serbia was incapable of deciding between war and peace, incapable of choosing peace while unwilling to choose war. It became a two front war because the German generals ignored the Kaiser and invaded neutral Belgium. When you are up to your neck in alligators, bad idea to invade anyone, let alone a neutral. Likely it would have become a two front war anyway, but if it became a two front war through France invading Germany, rather than Germany invading Belgium, Germany would have had fewer enemies, and France fewer allies. If you invade a neutral unprovoked, everyone is going to figure you need to be taken out, lest you invade them next. The Kaiser understood this, while the Generals merely understood war. There is plenty of blame to go around on both sides for starting the war. No one should have supported Serbia, since the regime was incapable of rational action or decision making, but if the Germans had not invaded Belgium, the blame for starting the war would have been entirely on Russia, and on France if France attacked, which was far from certain. Germany attacked France through Belgium because France might attack Germany. Which might have been sane had Germany not already been at war with Russia.

The Serbians complained that Austria’s demands were an insult to their sovereignty, which they were, but the reason for the demands was that Serbia was incapable of exercising sovereignty over itself, incapable of restraining its minority war faction from making war. If we think of Serbia as an individual, it was an individual with a bad case of schizophrenia, and a schizophrenic’s neighbours have little choice but to interfere with his sovereignty.

Germany lost the war, because it kept stubbornly trying to regain war of movement in France, to knock France out of the war in a quick blow, as the ISW has been stubbornly trying to knock Russia out the war with a quick blow. This was more generals trying to prove that invading Belgium had been a good idea, than it was a rational military strategy. And trying to take Russia out with a quick blow is the ISW trying to prove that endlessly provoking Russia with ever escalating provocations and threats has been a good idea.

Rational behaviour would be to cut a deal on the basis of the cards that are now lying face up on the table. What is likely to happen instead is ever deeper and ever stronger delusion.

    I forgot to mention here but I wrote a short novella a couple months ago about women and dating. Sort of in the milieu of Delicious Tacos if you’re familiar. Obviously speaks to many of the themes discussed here and I figured some commenters who don’t have Twitter would like to be aware. Be warned it doesn’t pull any punches and some have said it’s depressing if not brutal on the spirit to read. Link expires in about a week and a half.

      >some have said it’s depressing if not brutal on the spirit to read

      Well, I can say it’s certainly art. @Alf, check this out and learn a bit from it. Not exactly my cup of tea though. There were some humorous moments, but yeah, I can see how it’s depressing.

      And you know with the surety of sunrise that Kathy will never love you and will never be yours despite how close you have come

      Have a millennial generation friend who was a natural chad. He went through a lot of cherries growing up and many women in his college 20s. Eventually he burnt out over this type of thing. He’s the one I learned the phrase, ‘she’s never yours, just your turn’ from. When commenters like TC and I say, chads are saturated, it’s because at the end of the day they’re still want marriage, can’t find it, and get psychologically saturated. My friend is not living like a monk, but he’s not exactly going around popping cherries left and right anymore.

      Millennials were the last generation that produced chads on a maybe 1/20(?) rate. Gen Z and Gen alpha have extremely large male populations who gave up before even trying, and their rare chad types are henpecked. They’re maybe 1/40(?). It’s hard to tell, but it just seems like many Gen Z women are going unsatisfied and Gen A is quickly turning into NEETs slicking to a growing list of male V-Tuber. Inconceivable when I was growing up. Weeb shit used to be completely isolated to the less chad male population.

      you are not expelled but given fifty hours of community service for the crime of calling Kristen a bitch which you could not deny and this is not a joke or an exaggeration.

      I was once reported to one of the college deans, a lithe blond woman, she had a certain regality to her. I had a rather foolishly in-depth conversation with some guys on the most efficient method to exterminate a million people. Absolutely terrifying moment. First time I really thought I might get purged, but got off scott free when talking to her.

      She started smiling a lot during the conversation and I managed to turn it from an interrogation about what I said to a conversation about her her family and personal life. She told me I was free to come in anytime to talk. I took that to mean, ‘thank fuck, I’m never stepping foot in admin again’. Thank God I wasn’t directed to the obese bitch dean right next door.

      Anyways, I managed to quickly deduce who had reported me based on the dean letting it slip a young woman felt uncomfortable (telling me was against regulation)… which considering there was only one woman in the room at the time of the conversation made it rather obvious. The good news was none of the guys betrayed me, and “coincidentally” the woman who reported me was fat, short, and ugly. I had never seen her talking with any of the other guys. She just hung around. Things got sort of awkward after that, and the social group kinda fell apart.

        Heh I know I did him dirty in hindsight, a lot of the internal state in the book was dredged up intact from memory

    • alf says:

      My wife is reading it and although she enjoys it, has one complaint, namely that you supposedly do not accurately portray the female orgasm. Which is to say, in your book all the women cum because of penis-in-vagina. But, she says, only a minority of women come this way; most women need other forms (usually clitorally) of stimulation.

      • Aidan says:

        Once you exclude women on SSRIs, women overstimulated by excessive masturbation, and obligatory sex with beta boyfriends, the vast majority do orgasm from natural sex the way god intended

        • alf says:

          Lived experience is that no SSRIs, no excessive masturbation (she in fact threw away her vibrator because of this exact reason) and no obligatory sex with beta boyfriends, unless you want to throw an accusation (-:

          She can be wet as a swimming pool, and I can either pump her for half an hour and ~maybe~ have her orgasm or as much as look at her clit and she’ll come like that.

          the vast majority do orgasm from natural sex the way god intended

          If the vast majority of women ought to orgasm from penis in pussy, they would not have the vast majority of their pleasure nerves on their clit.

          • Aidan says:

            Not to get too much into the dirty details, but when you are balls deep in a woman in missionary, your abdomen should be pressing into her clit with every thrust.

            • alf says:

              lmao, that’s quite a roundabout way of saying I’m right.

              Look, I’ll be sure to bang her hard enough so that my abdomen slams into her clit. Orrrrr…..

              • Aidan says:

                That is *if* she has that problem. And it’s not like I describe every woman in the book getting off, plenty of them don’t. I even mention that sex is cathartic for women and they’re primally compelled to engage in it even when they’re not “enjoying” it but my prose blows by at hurricane speed and readers miss a lot of stuff.

                Jim has an even more extreme position: he has said that most women hide their orgasms so that you fuck them harder and for longer. But I don’t think that’s true.

                • Handi says:

                  I would buy that. One time when I was deciding whether to switch positions, I asked the girl if she was getting close, and she replied that she had already done it dozens of times. It’s very easy for them to downplay the noises and movements, and so much the better if you ask me because I can’t retain it at all if she’s having a loud one.

                • alf says:

                  That is *if* she has that problem.

                  Which is the majority of women.

                  Not disputing the claim that women don’t necessarily need to orgasm, not disputing the claim that women hide their orgasm. The only thing I’m disputing is:

                  the vast majority do orgasm from natural sex the way god intended

                  Where natural is implied to be dick in pussy.

                  If god intended women to orgasm that way, would not have put most of the pleasure nerves in the clit.

                • alf says:

                  And it’s not like I describe every woman in the book getting off, plenty of them don’t.

                  But you also describe Kathy as being an anomaly for not getting off on count of her meds, implying that the remainder of women do get off.

                • Aidan says:

                  Kathy could not get off if I played with her clit either. Believe me, I tried plenty. Most women who can get off with the clit would also get off when I pounded them, and I liked pounding them more than fiddling with their clits.

                  The clit has pleasure nerves because it is derived from the same fetal structure as the penis. And natural selection did not take this away because it is convenient for women to have an easy orgasm button. Women need to orgasm to breed, need to orgasm for their cervix to open up enough to admit seed. So if otherwise lacking, good to have a backup. I assume lacking the ability to have either a cervical or “g-spot” orgasm is rare in the state of nature. With women who are otherwise undamaged, I think it is rare but not unheard of. Which explains your wife.

                  Maybe I am preternaturally good in bed, I’ve been told so, but this is probably only compared to modern man, who pumps away mechanistically instead of allowing himself to be consumed by feral passion. I think our ancestors probably fucked with wild passion, mostly disregarding the clit, and my female ancestors probably had an equally wild eros, would explode as soon as their cervixes were rammed. Well, my wife is on the plain side, but she more than makes up for it in this regard in the sack.

                • alf says:

                  By all means, you do you. I am simply of the cheerful opinion that women indeed have an easy orgasm button, and that I in no way consider it cheating to press it.

      • Handi says:

        What are those feminist statistics again?

        -80% of women report that they cannot have a vaginal orgasm.

        -1 in 5 women have been raped or sexually assaulted.

        “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”

        • alf says:

          -1 in 5 women have been raped or sexually assaulted.

          1 in 5 women report having been raped or sexually assaulted, which is in fact under-reportation because an even larger minority, if not every woman, will at one time feel sexually assaulted by the attention of a beta male. So that is totally true. Why would the first one be a lie?

              He was eventually removed from power, but for a long time after he was removed from power, the judiciary continued to treat immigration as the third rail, with even completely legitimate complaints by migrants suffering a mysterious inability to get any court hearing all. Then after a very long time, they slowly started to creep back, but they are still traumatised. Kind of like the left has never forgiven George the fourth, and still have trauma over that incident.

              In the highly unlikely event that Greg Abbot does a Jackson on immigration as Tony Abbot did, I predict the same outcome as for Tony Abbot. The Judiciary will flee like starled rabbits and hastily bury the issue deep and dark, fearing that if they make a deal out of it, Greg Abbot would not wind up in jail, they would.

They even stopped a charter flight from India to Nicaragua when it landed in France to refuel!

              If the nigger-lovers try to push niggers into Amerikaner communities, those niggers will go back to the nigger-loving cities or disappear without a trace.

Moldbug cleaned of unending wordiness and wandering forever around in a circuitous journey towards the point. Plus he concisely summarises anti democracy thinker of ages past.

          I am fairly young , probably vastly younger than jim, progs/left world view has so completely taking the world it like out of 1984 , you can’t think new thoughts because old words has been purge from the language, and new words like “human rights”, “equality” , “women right” , “racism” etc have been introduced resulting in “egalitarian way of thinking ” taking hold and became “natural way of thinking” for people.
          When i read Carlyle or any pre 1920 writer i thought the reason i need to reread the text multiple times to get the meaning is because these writers used cryptic and ambiguous language but the fact that thier books was wildly read and best sellers tell that most people understood what they saids at the time, it just that in our time their thinking is closed off to us. So their language seem aliens.

      • Aidan says:

        Nick Land is a right wing marxist philosopher. By right wing Marxist, I mean he believes the Marxist interpretation of history, but denies that some worker’s paradise is the end state. He believes that complex systems, economies and memeplexes, are artificial intelligences that influence their participants more than the participants can influence the system, and this power imbalance is growing, ultimately creating a “machine god” which is not necessarily a robot master but an emergent intelligence out of systems humans originally created.

        He is a terminal wordcel, obviously very smart but not very wise, and unlike Moldbug he huffs his own farts, using needlessly complex diction and syntax and far far too many words to get his ideas across. If he were more laconic in language, it would be clearer that his ideas are kind of dumb and silly. And like many bloodless men he does not understand violence. I once dismissed his work with “the gods of war eat Land’s god of capital for breakfast”. And obviously, communists have proven themselves able to cripple the self-evolving mecha-Darwinist god of prediction markets. They said a loan to a jobless paperless drunk wetback was as solid as a loan to a white engineer with a wife and kids, and the market acted as though that were true until nature caught up with it. Turns out the priestly power of humans has quite a lot more power over history, and nature still more power.

            To call the belief in substantial human equality a superstition is to insult superstition. It might be unwarranted to believe in leprechauns, but at least the person who holds to such a belief isn’t watching them not exist, for every waking hour of the day. Human inequality, in contrast, and in all of its abundant multiplicity, is constantly on display, as people exhibit their variations in gender, ethnicity, physical attractiveness, size and shape, strength, health, agility, charm, humor, wit, industriousness, and sociability, among countless other features, traits, abilities, and aspects of their personality, some immediately and conspicuously, some only slowly, over time. To absorb even the slightest fraction of all this and to conclude, in the only way possible, that it is either nothing at all, or a ‘social construct’ and index of oppression, is sheer Gnostic delirium


            He was among the first to do real academic work on, what at the time was, a disparate series of writers and recognize they’re not at all disparate. That a cohesive definable group was forming. He more or less laid out the initial intellectual framework to recognize the group, a rough outlining, and thus cohesion was fostered under a number of umbrella terms he helped popularized. You could say he accelerated NRx.

            Yes, he does have his flaws, but I think overall his impact was largely good.

                He appears to have mellowed out considerably since escaping to China. I remember hearing rumors he started a family which had an effect as well.

                I do enjoy much of his earlier work, though less for their ideas and more as “art”. Meltdown turned into video audio format is what modern art could’ve been if it wasn’t a CIA front.

            Maybe a few hundred thousand drones, ah… but America doesn’t have the manufacturing capacity.

            No matter, just gotta dust off those old B-52s in storage and drop dumb old gravity bombs on them. What? There’s only ~50 operational and we don’t have enough bombs? Just supplement with C-130s and throw concrete blocks out the back.

              They have anti air capability that makes the empire reluctant to fly above Houthi territory – there would be losses. So have to drone them. Yemeni water is wells. A lot of wells, and it is hard to do costly damage to wells. A bomb hits a well, you have destroyed a pump, and caused some dirt to fall into the well. How much does a pump cost?

              The only bombable assets that matter in Yemen are military assets, water assets, housing assets, and transport assets. Not going to get far bombing them. The only way to coerce them is to efficiently kill a lot of people – ground war.

              • Pax Imperialis says:

                >it is hard to do costly damage to wells

                It is easy with chemical weapons… oh wait, we’re destroying them.

                This isn’t a problem of not being able to win by air power alone, it is feasible. It’s an issue of will, which is also the same reason why boots on the ground is also unlikely.

                • jim says:

                  > It is easy with chemical weapons

                  No it is not easy with chemical weapons. They are all long term unstable in air and water. You want the enemy population to breath them in or absorb them through the skin. By they time they soak down to the ground water, they decompose. If you are under attack from bioweapons and chemical warfare, you should drink well water. If you are attacking with chemical and bioweapons, you spread a mist over the densest population centres you can find.

                  Even stable poisons like arsenic, which do not decompose, are removed by ion exchange as the poisoned water percolates through earth and rock.

                  You can poison the people, you can poison the air and surface water, but if you want to poison a well, you have to drop a solid lump of soluble poison down that particular well. Blasting it over the general vicinity of the well just will have no effect.

                • jim says:

                  America cannot starve Yemen, because then they would have to block, and open fire, on shipping, which is going to escalate the war wider, and the Empire is already falling under the impact of too many battle fronts. And America cannot do anything about their water supply, because all very deep underground. And America is not having much success knocking out their military assets. The only way America can apply substantial pressure is by directly killing enough people. Which approach is not working out well for Israel because they are going about genocide in a half assed and indecisive fashion.

                  In a situation like this, you have to either say “surrender or we kill everyone”, and be believed, and be able to believe them when they say they have surrendered, or else just straight up kill everyone. And since neither America nor Yemen is likely to be believed, the only way the American Empire can win is to just straight up kill everyone the old fashioned way.

                • Pax Imperialis says:

                  >Blasting it over the general vicinity of the well just will have no effect

                  Area denial does the job well enough.

                  Stability issues don’t matter so much when just shutting down water supply for a week in Yemen’s urban south would create major pain. They are already having water problems and it wouldn’t take much to push them over the edge. The half-assed Saudi intervention in 2015 greatly disrupted water supplies, and the wells need to pump water from such a depth that they require fuel powered motors to do so, fuel which they have to import. Oh hey, another avenue for attack.

                  It’s precisely because of stability issues that chemical weapons can work as a negotiating tool. Having to be reapplied on a consistent basis creates a framwork for saying, ‘hey, this could all end in a week so long as you concede, else we’ll keep doing area denial around critical infrastructure’.

                  They have maybe a couple dozen waste water treatment plants. Hitting those and all of a sudden the surrounding environment fouls up considerably. Adding anything chemical is just a short term bonus. They use variously levels of processed waste water extensively for agriculture. Biological weapons don’t even need to be employed as nature would take care of the rest, but if the US really wanted to get nasty, dropping anthrax infested dead cows into their stabilizing pools would create massive contamination or shutter much of their remaining agriculture.

                  Look, these are all details, and the last couple posts I made on the Yemen issue were clearly being facetious, or maybe not, text alone sometimes fails to convey tone.

                  My point was that there is much the US could do well within its capability to bring Yemen to its knees begging for forgiveness without so much as a single boot on the ground, but it won’t and therefore it will very likely lose.

                  >under the impact of too many battle fronts

                  If the US were willing to immediately and brutally escalate, it could de-escalate the situation, but again, that’s not something the US would do.

                  > Area denial does the job well enough

                  Both sides in the Ukraine are vigorous engaging in area denial against each other. Neither side can deny a very large area for very long, except they have artillery on a hill overlooking the area.

                  They just cannot deny critical areas thirty kilometers away, even a small area. A whole lot of very costly struggles are under way right now as the Russians try to stop the Ukrainians from using some road intersection a short distance from turf they control. In order to deny one well, the US would have to do what the Russians do to deny one intersection.

                  And there are enormously more wells in Yemen than there are logistically critical intersections near the front lines in the Ukraine.

                  No there is not. If there was, someone would have used it in some previous war against someone.

                  There is only one example of a group being forced to concede in the face of total air supremacy by the other side, and that was a handful of not very highly motivated lightly armed farmers with a few single shot rifles, facing most of the might of the British airforce. It has always needed boots on the ground, total air supremacy has never forced any significant opponent to concede over anything.

                  And the US does not have total air supremacy over Yemen.

                  > they have maybe a couple dozen waste water treatment plants

                  Who gives a shit about waste water treatment plants?

                  Dubai is a beautiful and clean city, and what they do with their poop is just dump it in a quite small patch of desert. Yemen is not short of desert.

                  To turn sewage into water that is safe to drink, all that is needed is that it has to percolate through a few meters of dirt before it gets anywhere. It is only a problem if it has the potential for running over the surface. Which is not a problem in Yemen.

                  I am affluent first world, my waste water does not go to a waste water treatment plant, everything is very nice. Waste water treatment plants are just government meddling for the sake meddling and creating dependency. Waste water treatment plants are not some vital facility, they are just an excuse for government interference. I am in an exurb, but I have seen plenty of pleasant affluent very attractive suburbs without sewers or a waste water treatment plant either. You really only need sewers if the climate is wet and the ground flat so that poop could go everywhere, so you have have a system that contains it. If your water table is always well below any ground that anyone cares about, sewers are silly.

                  Once in a blue moon I have to get a shovel and get covered in filth but it does not happen very often. It takes me very little time or effort to keep everything related to waste water clean, healthy, attractive and nice. Centralised waste water facilities are a solution looking for a problem, unless your water table is sometimes near the surface. If your water table is always well below the surface, because you are elevated, or because of the climate, they are pointless.

                  When I flush the toilet, it goes into a septic tank, which just a big hole with a big concrete lid, and the shower, the sinks, the washing machine, and so on and so forth drain into a small pit covered by a rock, which drains into a small concrete settling tank with a concrete lid, which drains into another pit covered by another rock.

                  I sometimes have to shovel the stuff out of the settling tank, but it is not that bad and I just dump it on the flowers. Once in several years I have to pump the stuff out of the septic, and what I am supposed to do is hire someone to pump the septic tank out and take the stuff away, and I usually do that because it is less trouble, and because a little bit of the feces in it is fresh, but if I just pump it into the bottom of the garden which I have sometimes done, ninety nine point nine percent of it is thoroughly decomposed, and any fresh feces in there gets buried in stuff that has long since decomposed to become innocuous. The rather smelly anaerobically decomposed liquid from the septic tank turns into odourless aerobically decomposed solid dirt in remarkably short time, a couple of days, and the worms enjoy it. The smell is only noticeable when I am pumping it and near the dump point, and in the morning, smells no longer. It is not dirt the morning after, that takes two or three days, for a few days it is stuff you don’t want to touch, but it is not a big stink even when being pumped, and does not stink at all the morning after.

                  I suppose that dirt contains human diseases, but once it has been through the worms, it will no longer.

                  Sewers only have value if you need to take measures to ensure that the water table stays below the surface. They are pointless in Yemen, except in areas so densely populated that there are no natural areas of unused dirt on on which to dump it. In which case you do what Dubai does, truck it out to somewhere where there is some unused dirt.

                  Yemen is considerably lighter armed than Ukraine and is 85 IQ Arab. Arab armies are well known for having problems functioning compared to European armies.

                  >They just cannot deny critical areas thirty kilometers away, even a small area

                  Neither side can achieve air superiority in Ukraine because both sides have good AA. It’s possible to do so over Yemen which has no where close to the same capability.

                  >There is only one example of a group being forced to concede in the face of total air supremacy by the other side

                  1945 Japan doesn’t count? Sure, Soviets massing in the far east changed their calculus, but likewise Saudi coalition can serve the same purpose and they’d like to break the quagmire they’ve been in for 8 years now.

                  >And there are enormously more wells in Yemen

                  Much of which are in the rural north which is not a problem. Water infrastructure in the urban south is a lot more concentrated in the Sanaa basin, and the basin geography works against them. Wells tend to be in the lower elevation parts of basins. VX would stay in the basin for days if not a week. VX is low volatility and heavier than air.

                  Something like 1/3 to 1/2 of all of Yemen’s wells are located in that basin, and although on paper there are 20,000 wells, the location of all of them are already known including their status, 30% (of 13,000) were known to be non-producing in 2004 and the problem has only gotten much worse since hence the additional 7,000 wells, likely created because 7,000 wells of the 9,000 functional wells failed. I would not be surprised if today there were only a few hundred that provides a plurality of the city’s water.

                  Again, I point out that these wells are using motor powered pumps. Pumps which were installed by foreign aid and powered by electrical plants, again built by foreign aid. They can’t replace them. Knocking them offline is trivial, so trivial the Saudis have knocked off most power plants already years ago and they’ve never been repaired. There’s only one left in Sanaa city, and most of its power generation appears to go to the pumps and other critical infrastructure. I can only speculate it’s fear of creating a “humanitarian crisis” that has prevented the Saudis from knocking out the last power plant.

                  >Who gives a shit about waste water treatment plants? . I am affluent first world, my waste water does not go to a waste water treatment plant, everything is very nice, and it seems to me that waste water treatment plants are just government meddling for the sake meddling and creating dependency.

                  It’s not a problem for you if city sewage system stops working. You don’t live in a city. Imagine NYC is today all toilets stopped flushing. It would be a literal shit show. The only way big modern cities work is by big centralized utility services, which I suppose says a lot negative about modern cities in general.

                  The Houthi are in a bunch of dependent urban dweller cities. Without waste water treatment plants, they would be shitting in the streets and dying of cholera, half the city already is. Why not make it the entire city? They don’t grow much of their own food either. Again, dependent on aid, which largely stopped in Dec 2023. The only reason why the Houthi haven’t collapsed is because of past international aid had built much infrastructure.

                  This is on top of Houthi controlled cities being geographically similar to Sarajevo. If the coalition wanted to win, it could, which points to them not wanting to win.

                  That doesn’t contradict what I was saying about them being in “areas so densely populated that there are no natural areas of unused dirt on on which to dump it”

                  The capital has greater population density than many American cities. Houthi controlled lands are around 500+ per sq km outside of the capital. This is typical American desert middle class suburb population density. This is uncomfortably crammed for a desert environment. It is similar to Arizona’s population distribution if all that empty desert was ceded to California. Houthi Arizona would be equivalent of Phoenix and surrounding suburbs. For a desert, this is very densely populated.

                  >Their powerbase is the countryside, the farmers, and from the rural areas, they took the hostile capital.

                  There is barely any farmland. ~80% of the daily calories are imported. Less than 3% of land is arable and less than half of that is farmed. Their power base has always been the idle whose population exploded due to being subsidized by foreign aid.

                  >What the Saudis have through their puppet government is empty desert with a big port city in it, plus a bunch of Khat plantations that run on irrigation.

                  And the oil fields.

                  What the Houthis control is not able to feed itself, on the verge of dying of thirst, doesn’t produce any oil to run the generators and pumps that barely extract enough water to survive on, and is densely packed enough that if sewage stops working millions will be having the cholera experience… a second time, they had a million plus person outbreak in 2016-2020. No other Arab nation has ever had a cholera outbreak as large as the Houthis.

                  Which brings us right back to the “natural areas of unused dirt on on which to dump it”. Arabs are stupid, but not so stupid that they would normally shit where they eat. Based on pop densities, they likely can’t help it, and those waste processing plants are pretty nice. Would be a shame if anything happened to them.

                  The capital does not matter and Houthis don’t care about it. What they care about is the heartland that enabled them to take the capital. It is a parasitic city that was a pain up their butts, and they conquered it to stop it from being a pain. If someone nuked the capital this would not distress them unduly.

                  Imagine there was been a civil war in America, and the Amerikaners conquered New York and Washington. but the civil war kept going because of external support for the previous government, now exiled to a rump area and on life support by foreign intervention. You think threats to harm what was left of New York and Washington would trouble the Amerikaner faction?

                  If what is left of the capital got nuked, it would a weight off the Houthi’s shoulders, for all the reasons that you list as Houthi vulnerabilities.

                  The foreigners who are still supporting the capital are still supporting it for the same reasons as they supported it before the Houthi’s took it. They care more about the capital than the Houthis do. All their agents of influence are still there.

                  I just saw a gigantic million man march in Yemen chanting “We don’t care” meaning that they will not be intimidated. Take a look at the background they are marching through. A few tall buildings, a lot of land with dead grass, a few trees here and there. The area that the million man march assembled in has absolutely no need of sewers and water treatment. I don’t need a water treatment facility, and the people who live near the assembly point need it even less than I do. I conjecture that the poop and gray water is delivered to the trees. Which is what I, an affluent first worlder, do with grey water, and have sometimes done with poop. (I have an electric pump for my septic tank, but I usually don’t use it. I usually pay someone to empty it and take the muck away, but I don’t have do that, and do not always do that. After poop has been sitting in a septic tank for a long time, it is no longer so obnoxious. Still fairly obnoxious, but not nearly as bad. If you dump aged septic tank muck on dirt, the worms like it but the flies do not like it. It turns solid quickly as the water is absorbed into the ground, and then turns into regular dirt after a few days. The plants like it.)

                • jim says:

                  It is not waste water facilities that prevent the spread of cholera, but fresh water facilities.

                  If contaminated surface runoff water gets directly into the well, rather than percolating through a hundred meters of dirt, then you get the spread of cholera. Or if you take water directly from the river, and sewage gets into the river. And the coalition cannot do much about Houthi fresh water facilities. All the capital’s water has been slowly percolating through hundreds of miles of ground. A third world cholera outbreak is usually caused by contaminated drinking water as a result of morons running the drinking water delivery service, or getting water directly from a contaminated river.

                  Cholera can also spread through food contamination, or dirty hands contaminating food. So if the sewers overflow, could contaminate the people, and thus the food. But the sewers in Yemen are not going to overflow. The ground is bone dry, as is obvious from the photo of the million man march. When they had a cholera outbreak, it was unlikely to be sewage to person to food, it was most likely sewage to drinking water delivery business, which is every cholera epidemic in recent centuries. The Yemenis are not going to be drinking from puddles, for lack of puddles.

    At the same time, the former military that have gone into the MIC are very aware of what’s happening. Some are nervous, but most are seizing the opportunity to sell wunderwaffen to the staff of the brass. the incompetence of the staffs are so total, that a sexy demonstration video and oodles of jargon can convince them to turn on the money spigots. So they ignore their lying eyes and swear that ramjet projectiles will defeat the Chinese on the ground before they even take off. They swear that bigger ships with more personnel and expensive weapons systems will cut the Gordian Knot of declining skill and questionable loyalty.

    This fire of declining empire is self-sustaining, and bad news or reality is filtered out of the process completely, so every possible wake up call is muted or snoozed.

    On January 9th there was a relatively large hybrid battle in the Bab el-Mandeb. British and US Navy managed to interdict a substantial bombardment from Yemen including drones, shore>ship missiles, and ballistic missiles. The GAE navies had to coordinate over UHF & satellite phones because leadership neglected to put RSOs/Comms officers on the bridges of the civilian ships they were escorting. current doctrine of aerial defense requires two shots for every one incoming. That is a recipe for dry magazines in a very short period of time. apparently Eisenhower circumvented the obvious conclusion by deploying air assets to assist in the interdiction. The USN/USM is not going to collapse tomorrow, but every time a flawed doctrine appears to work, the inevitable consequences become magnified bigly.

      • jim says:

        If you believe that all the underperformance is the result of evil thought waves projected by white males, the only solution to create true social justice is to get rid of all white males. Which, as we are now seeing in the Ukraine, rapidly becomes getting rid of all whites.

        Social justice demands genocide, and the holiness spiral is inexorably and rapidly heading to this result. White people need a Thermidor before it reaches this result, but in the French Revolution, Thermidor only worked because of the white terror. It was the white terror, not just the execution of Robespierre, that put an end to the french red terror.

        And when the Thermidoreans cracked down on reactionaries, they found the white terror was not working any more, and they had to go to full on military dictatorship.

        Thermidor is a “moderate”, less holiness spiraled, version of the official faith, one full of unprincipled exceptions. But it has to defend itself against those holier than it. Which it is unable to do, because Thermidoreans feel in their bones they are insufficiently holy.

        The Thermidoreans could not effectually man the white terror because they felt in their bones that the red terrorists were holier than they were, so it was manned by reactionaries, and with the reactionaries crushed, the white terror lost its balls.

        For similar reasons, Stalin had to hire and empower Beria, Cromwell had to hire and empower Monck, and Zou had to rehire and re-empower Deng. You just cannot do a white terror without people like that. Thermidor is helpless without reaction to give it steel. People who held to “moderate” versions of the official faith had to hire people who just did not believe in the official faith, if they wanted to keep the holier than thou in line.

        To conduct a terror against an opposing faith that has paladins of its faith, you need paladins of a hostile faith, and Thermidor is too compromised and wish washy to produce paladins.

        In the unlikely event that Vivek is elected, and is serious about what he says he plans, or the likely event that Trump is elected, the president will find himself powerless unless he hires people like us, as Trump found himself powerless last time around. Cromwell had to hire and empower Monck, and Trump will fail again unless he hires the people he refused to hire last time around.

        This is another comment that I need to promote into a post.

          Yeah you cant have a Thermidor without minecrafting at least all the extreme leftist with any institutional power. Certainly if they did it Biden and anyone in his top staff would have to go and most of the people involved in lawfare against Trump or J6ers would have to go.

          • Pax Imperialis says:

            It appears Cromwell and Monck didn’t do much minecrafting, hence why we in the Anglosphere have the exact same problems today. They introduced a bunch of laws targeting their left with the death penalty, but strangely a bunch were released from prison alive.

            Likewise Deng didn’t do much minecrafting either, and China is slipping back into Communist spiraling.

            The only success was the Thermidors… until they got rid of the reactionaries, and Stalin.

            A rough statistical guess suggests moderates halting leftist spiraling is uncommon.

    They are trying to find ways to send the migrants to red suburbs and rural towns, but they don’t seem to be having much success due to the fact that the migrants themselves WANT to be in the big blue cities where they can get shelter and government handout money, and there are a lot of people and houses to rob or beg from.

    Does the Left understand that they are only hurting their own voters? Those of us opposed to the Left are either holed up in the countryside with fences, guns and dogs, or we’re at least in quiet suburbs where we don’t have to see a junkie taking a shit on the subway car floor for the third time that week. Maybe the Left HAVE to torment themselves – worshipping the devil doesn’t bring you happiness, you end up getting mouthraped by demons with barbed cocks and dipped in boiling shit anyway.

    Do they even care about pleasing voters anymore because elections are now all “fortified?” Are they trying to make Dem voters so miserable that they flee to other states and turn them blue? If all the productive people flee, what is their plan then? Assume that all the blacks and latinos then explode out into Red areas as a huge swarm to destroy THOSE areas? It seems a bit counter-productive to first destroy your own territory in the hopes that the destroyers then move on to your enemy’s territory.

                Yarvin points out there’s a lot on Google Books. In the last 3 or 4 years (rough estimate, I haven’t been counting) it has quietly been made more and more difficult to search, and much of what used to be wide open is now only previews. The search engine no longer works well when looking for phrases within books. Difficulties aside, Google Books has remained somewhat available. Curiously, I’ve found phrases which will currently result in almost zero normal Google search results will ping several Google Book search results. I remember just a few years ago getting 1,000s of regular search results for those same phrases, meaning much of the focus on censorship is on the front end of the platform, which shouldn’t be surprising.

                In more recent years, when trying to view the books the search brought up, many are strangely lacking any previews when I remember they used to have them. You can preview Pinochet’s Geopolítica. There are many books that no longer have previews at all, or if they do the snippet is a mere sentence or two, not the couple pages it used to be.

                I’ve used Google Books on and off, at times extensively, since it was made available.

Now we use a somewhat different terminology, which will have to change again when blockchains based on recursive snarks take over.

                  He keeps talking about time stamps, when today we say block height, and do not care about the exact time of the block. The purpose of the time stamp service was to prevent the past from being rewritten.

                  We now rely on data in electronic form, which can be easily changed, and is being changed with startling rapidity. So you need to get all past data into a merkle dag so that it cannot be changed, and the merkle dag needs to contain a merkle patricia tree (sql index) of the public keys of individuals who asserted data to be valid at a certain time. (I am now using forward looking terminology, the terminology that we will need to use in an age of crypto currencies based on recursive snarks)

              I also had an absurdly hard time finding jim recommended book “English society 1688-1832” not the “English society 1660-1832” which is available.

              • jim says:

                The conflicts, the power struggle, from 1688 to 1832 was an explicitly and overtly a religion based struggle, not a class struggle. When the post Christians (then Socinians, now outright demon worshippers) won decisively, history got rewritten as class struggle. “English society 1688-1832” says “Hey, that is not what those people were on about”. “English society 1660-1832” changes course to be less confrontational about official doctrine.

                From Henry the Eighth to 1660, it was explicitly and overtly religious conflict, with cold war frequently getting hot, and frequent outright civil war from 1640 to 1650. In 1660, decisively settled till 1688, whereupon it was on again till the decisive victory of the post Christians in 1832. So if you start in 1660, you can impose a non religious frame, though it takes some fairly brutal stretching of the facts. In the 1660 to 1832 version, Clarke gets a bit more delicate about noticing that the emperor has no clothes.

                It is been a religious conflict for centuries, just that when one side has the decisive upper hand, this becomes less noticeable, because it is just the way things are, like a fish does not notice water.

                It has become noticeable again, with Trump, Tucker, and Vivek calling it out, because post Christians have gone full demonic.

                Gonna be honest: I got my hands on a 1688 copy, but have not gotten beyond the first chapter. I felt like I lacked about 15 IQ points to understand its content. Although the assumed familiarity with dozens of historical intellectuals didn’t help either.

                  Spartacus Educational is an ok cliff notes for obscure historical Anglo figures, and the Southern Poverty Law Center hates the website. It won’t explain in depth exactly who’s who, or exactly what they were doing back then, but it at least helps lay out a bare bone map who was around and about at the time, from which it gets easier to find off site information.

                  Check out the page on Abiezer Coppe. You can clearly see the English Civil War left is the same left as today, and it’s pretty obvious that Cromwell’s purge of those left to him, wasn’t sufficient and likely why the Anglo left is still around. Coppe was allowed to live and eventually set free and later ended up practicing medicine.

The only problem is the evil republicans, who are bussing migrants from Texas faster than blue cities can ship them to section 8 housing in red counties, causing them all this awful suffering out of the pure desire to hurt and oppress them, and secret racists in the police force and legal system who ensure that some black people still end up in jail (the horror).

        • Pax Imperialis says:

          America has always been an empire, has traditionally been growth oriented. The continuous conquest and colonization westward was empire in its finest. It’s when the empire went overseas under the guidance of Wilson that things went completely haywire and concepts inversed. i.e. the Empire pays tribute to its client states rather than the client states paying tribute to the Empire, looting the core rather than the extremities, persecuting the core demographic instead of rebellious non-core subjects.

          I don’t think it’s possible to divorce American identity from empire, but global progressive crusader state can definitely be cut off without anything of value being lost. Could you imagine divorcing the concept of Rome from Empire?! They had trouble just reforming to less costly boarders.

          Personally, I dream of a North American Empire (a NAE to a GAE), minus Quebec and Mexico, with only one major overseas colony of Australia. It was a good dumping ground in 1800, and so it can be again. Maybe Greenland too. Heck, might as well add Iceland as well.

    Off topic question: Is anyone currently working on genetically engineering humans to have higher IQs? Or is that far off technologically and possibly politically incorrect?

    • jim says:

      Yes, and no. We are learning a lot of information that would likely make it possible to engineer humans for higher IQ in the not very distant future. But in our present state of knowledge, any attempt to do so, other than proofreading the genome, would be disastrous.

      But we would likely gain large benefits in health, strength, IQ, and reaction time by proofreading the genome, and as we speak, experiments are under way on proofreading genomes of small fast breeding easily clonable animals. (Which experiments have so far had disastrous outcomes, but like Musk’s rockets blowing up, looks doable.)

      • TheFeebleClone says:

        I think WM Briggs has some interesting perspectives on IQ. It is not necessarily distinct attribute but a measure. Even if you construct a “g” that is some sort of linear average of subtests, it’s not necessarily a distinct attribute, albeit it may be proxy for several. [This is one of his several articles on the subject. His other writing on the topic may also be of interest ]

        I think Chris Langan said that conventional IQ is a measure of something like processing speed, rapid solutions to comparatively simple problems. He says quite a few high IQ individuals lack a sort of aperture which is involved in the solution of more difficult problems. He explained that’s why the UHIQ tests do not have the same sort of time limit, and test takers actually bring home the problems to solve.
        Now, I’m not so sure that latter sort of intelligence is bred very easily. Although it has to be said, from 1/4 of Langan’s family tree, he is the direct descendent of something like 200 kings.

        I like the fact that I’m sub average IQ on this forum, but that’s why I read this blog, not ones that flatter me with “Ah, just what I was thinking.”

But this still probably falls under the rubric of “proof reading”.

        On the non-human front, the extinction of the mosquito is being planned, using gene drive and other technologies, followed soon thereafter by the tsetse fly, screw worm fly, bot fly, mango worm fly, … This could make Africa a garden of Eden as far as the White man is concerned. See Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness” for the present.

        Although the powers that be may want to preserve some mosquitoes to use as vaccine drones.

        They’ve allegedly already fixed the American Chestnut by splicing in a gene, from another plant, that kills the blight fungus. Government regulatory problems are stalling its reintroduction into the wild.

        Probably the worst case of regulatory interference in my opinion is the so called “golden rice”. This is rice with the beta-carotene gene spliced in. Heaven forbid you make rice more nutritious. But splicing BT-Toxin, as a pesticide, into corn is just A-OK!

    • Ryan says:

      ‘Engineering’ implies CRISPR or altering DNA. CRISPR has been used on humans in china. They may be covertly experimenting with intelligence or other ‘super-soldier’ attributes. It’s very possible currently, but it’s a risky endeavour even if it ‘works’. In theory, just swapping genes for other common variants found in humans shouldn’t cause issues other than the possible loss of genetic diversity.

      Here and now, embryo selection is already used to boost IQ. You make 10 or so embryos, look at their DNA, exclude any with genetic diseases or significant ‘bad’ genes, then maximise some function of polygenic scores from genome-wide association studies which partially predict IQ, health etc. This may have unseen costs in that it uses IVF, which doesn’t perfectly mimic the fitness race of natural insemination.

        This is exactly what has happened, and often the men who can do that task do still exist, or could be called into being at a reasonable cost. However, this is only if Shaniqua etc. can be removed or bypassed. Increasingly, she cannot be. So this theoretical ability to do what cannot be done becomes more and more theoretical each year.

        What they government is finding, is that government contracting cannot do things, because government contracting is Shaniqua ground zero, and even non-Shaniquas who survive there are people who make their peace with being non-productive, playing out the script, even though it’s going nowhere.

                Mike Yeadon’s argument on the injection being intentional murder/maiming is that all 5 companies chose the same antigen (which is also possibly the worst possible choice), which shows coordination at a higher level.

                Since it was a military operation, manufacturing done to a large extent by military contractors, with the Pfizer label used to trick the normies into thinking it was medicine, and legally classed as EUA “countermeasures”, not investigational, not experimental, it looks as though it wasn’t big pharma calling the shots, but the DoD or whoever gave them the order.

              Yes it is just the flu. But there are a lot of flues, and many of them are truly distinct species, in so far as viruses have species, in that they cannot successfully do genetic exchange with each other Albeit if you take the genetic exchange criterion, it is very hard to sort viruses into distinct species, because they have a remarkable capacity for cross breeding.

              So, yet another different kind of flu. But there seems to be substantial cross immunity between the different flues, so the difference does not matter much.

      I think, since testing is prohibited, and the military industrial complex loves any excuse to avoid, postpone, or game testing, his assessments are wildly optimistic. Without testing, any large organisation is just always going to go completely off the rails. You just cannot do tech development without continuous testing of every component, and every sub assembly of components, and deadlines for testing of the complete assembly.

      All these systems require maintenance, and they are being maintained by people who do not understand them and have no incentive to get it right. Which problem becomes worse the larger the organisation, because there are multiple layers to attenuate any signal that something is wrong.

            Models can be valuable if used to interpolate data between tests. Without tests, models are just an academic exercise.

    Let us discuss the plan at the top of the Democratic party and US government to commit the largest mass murder in history, ie for the mass murder of legacy Americans (even if hare brained and unlikely to succeed). It is increasingly my belief and I think Jim agrees that they plan to exterminate legacy Americans (this is especially white Protestant old stock Americans outside major cities who aren’t hardcore shitlibs).

    They do not need the mass immigration of military age males to vote for them, they evolved past that… I think we all agree. Now lets try to discuss HOW they would try to do it.

    It would be almost impossible to do without an internet and power blackout and they would want as many people as possible to go to mass killing centers voluntarily as the amount of people they plan to kill is over 100 million. So step one DO NOT EVACUATE ANYWHERE WITH THE US GOVERNMENT DURING A BLACKOUT. Anyone who shows up and is the wrong type of person is going to suffer the fate of those who showed up for Khmer Rogue evacuations and was the wrong type of person. Maybe they don’t die that day but they’ll be dead in six weeks.

Anyone who doesn’t like it and shoots back, gets treated to the FBI and national guard, and gets massive completely unbiased news coverage showing just how evil they are senslessly killing innocent musical scholars.

      From the urban centers to the rural places just requires busses. They had no problem bussing in people to places that were not quite diverse enough in 2020.

            If you can prevent the people to be genocided from organising, a quite incoherent, poorly equipped, and poorly organised force can exterminate us – Rwanda being the clear example.

            If and when genocide unfolds, to stop it we need a Caesar, and, since it is going to be a holy war, a prophet and a high priest. Without that, nothing can be done. As the Tutsis inside Rwanda could do nothing.

            • Kunning Drueger says:

              The Tutsi had a substantially better military, but they were out of position and held at bay but international diplomacy and forces. Once the scope of the genocide became clear, Kagame’s militia did move in, and on short order halted the genocide then forced a mass migration of Hutu.

              Slow burn, letting Thrall Whites genocide themselves through consumption and atomization, is the optimal strategy, but the Radicals are impatient and incompetent. They may try to do Project Rwanda, but even that isn’t so simple. Interhamwe was the principal organizer of the massacre, and they took a couple years to equip the killers in both body and mind (Machetes + Message). When we assess America through that lens, we see that many pieces are in place, but wherewithal and will are a challenge.They need to foment multiple Rwanda scale events across the US, and almost necessarily require some sort of cataclysm as a catalyst. TC is correct, their job becomes much easier if evacuations are occurring, getting the target population centralized and isolated. But they also need a casus belli to activate official forces to go after the non-compliers. So a flat info blackout is not going to work, it has to be distributed and selective. The same mechanism they need to give orders & guidance is also what their Opposition (us) will use to coordinate & counter.

              In the past few years, we have seen the time between Official Message Goes Out and Counter Narrative Goes Out shrink by magnitudes, arguably there’s no longer a gap at all. if we compare Corona to Coronahoax and Maui Fire to Maui Massacre, the counter narrative actually got out ahead of the official narrative. Add to this the unparalleled expansion of gun ownership and nascent balkanization, and it is pretty clear that no one remotely intelligent would even try it. It will look more like Operation Incarcerate Trump, with dimwit radicals going off half-cocked with no coordination, causing a cascade as other agents decide when and how to follow up, deviate, or jump on the bandwagon. In their favor is the demonstrated incapacity to coordinate or even recognize the need to coordinate of conservative/white/normal Americans. But the number of Aware Americans is growing every day, even if the majority are misguided or deluded; they may not know what to do or how to do it, but they are getting primed to do something.

              I do think they will try to foment a genocide, but it will be sloppy and illogical, and I reiterate that a natural disaster, or massive industrial accident, or distributed chaos scenario, is absolutely a prerequisite.

It is paramount for their aims that anyone or anything that could prevent them from pushing towards their desired conclusion be out of place and out of communication. So Taiwan or some other flare-up might serve as the catalyst that I have posited would need to be a natural disaster. It may require both.

                  Currently developing doctrine looks more like starving on Pacific Islands because no logistic support. *Magic American Paper Money will be used to buy food and other supplies from the locals*. Somehow they overlooked the fact those Islands are net calorie importers by a significant margin. Unless its shopping at gun point, I don’t see it working out.

                  But I’m not personally worried because guess what? The very same doctrine which assumes no logistic support by extension presumes an inability to ship troops in mass over in the first place. Top leadership can’t be that stupid right? Perhaps they just don’t want to pursue insane wars in the first place and are purposely creating plans that will fail with minimum loss of life.

                But without a Caesar, what can they do?

                Assume Antifa BLM on steroids, which was what Interhamwe was. The Tutsi in Rwanda were unable to organise. They organised in Uganda, and invaded. Where are American whites going to organise?

I’m not saying that’s a victory, but I am saying that if they tried to do the same thing in an even larger area, they’d have even bigger problems.

                  We should remember that the hope for a Caesar is basically a hope for the country being saved. warlords can perform the same thing Caesar does for the country at a much smaller scale. And I do think that is more likely, that there will be general chaos and breakdown with localized pockets of order established by cartel types, or sheriffs, or anyone who dispenses with modernity and embraces action. Of course, I hope a national leader arises. But I am just as capable of following a local leader, and my own star might rise even further in that situation, and I know for a fact that I am not the only one.

      Simply based on how GAE work. And how genocide work, it require a lot of work.
      First you need a paramilitary force, and not a bunch of guys you payed them to fight ,some of them will be , and some will be followers to get the war booty.
      The core, however, are committed leftist, true believers.
      Second their weapons will be light, riding on pickups /technical, moving like packs
      (See cartel south of the border)
      They are very fast and attacks in thousands at a time. like hyenas never individually, and in waves until wearing the target out, they exhibit no care for their life or the life of their comrades.
      This force will not be controlled like blm or protests. , as i said it require a lot of work to conduct a genocide.
      It will be fully self controlled hence “true believers”, self funding; looting whomever they want while the state turn blind eye.
      They will be armed not by AR-15s but cheap AK-47,
      Technical usually a pickup with GPMG on top.
      Fighting them become impossible not because they are effective at war but because they are numerous, like antes or flies. So people generally flee
      Genoside is fundamentally “forcefully displacement ” then let the ensuing anarchy; looting , fighting over basic food and supply, starvation, diseases … Etc
      Take the rest, by the end of it the targeted group will not have a functioning social structure even if they are numerous in number.

        The plan (which is probably not the plan of the dominant faction of the deep state, there are always far more plans than get carried out) is that the core of BLM and Antifa will be augmented by all the young black Muslim males that they are flying in from black Africa.

          Which why the changed tone in army recruiting commercial. They are here to live on crime, welfare and voting democrats (when voting did matter). Also they are low ig useless, good for soaking up bullets in a fight.
          My model is that the core will be white leftist like in blm and antifa like you said , however, the fighting force will be from south of the border. Old Mexican demon worshipers marriage with prog demon worshiper from north. Imagine Antifa with cartel fighting force under them (how that gonna happen, i don’t know)
          The big red flag I am waiting for is when GAE allow cartel to operate

                  Re women and obsessive chad chasing and beta rejecting

                  Women of course have a strong preference for mr one and 30 and if you fill them with brainwashing and propaganda since they are 5 and also push down the status of men and then pay them to be cat ladies and single mothers they will chad chase and spurn all lesser men but given the way that women act in non cathedral countries (unowned women in such countries are in fact generally known for extreme promiscuity) I’m not sure how innate it is that they show no interest in the non chads if chad isn’t available. I do remember that even as late as 2010-2012 women were in general far far more approachable and friendlier in public.

                  One reason my stripper exploit works so well is strippers actually apparently tend to get very self conscious and sad if they approach a potential customer and he turns them down no matter whether he is attractive (which they won’t find you initially at 1st) or not, they let you keep pushing ahead if you give them validation because they apparently REALLY hate doing all they can to looksmax and appear seductive and then being rejected. When strippers say the work is often psychologically damaging its not that they have to be touched or even fucked by random betas that bothers them so much its that they looksmax and act sexy and then (given that they have to actually approach men) they still get rejected sometimes. This is also probably why negging works for other people more socially adept than me (I’ve never been able to do it without pissing girls off too much).

                  I tend to think an attractive women rejected by chad without all the feminist brainwashing and conditioning would probably run right to a beta orbiter guy she knows and hop on his dick. They didn’t seem to be too unhappy to marry betabucks before the 1990s (though the divorce shit started in the 70s).

                  The solution applied by the authorities at Port Jackson after women arrived and there was a bunch of big sex parties on the beach is the correct solution. They made the women get married and supported the authority of the husband by disturbingly drastic means.

                  Jim I agree with you normally and the gigachad gets to bang a new woman whenever he wants but that he gets to bang a new woman every night is hyperbole since most women lose their virginity below the age of consent, there are a few gigachad high school guys who pop the women in high school and perhaps a few tyrones and drug dealing violent criminals who don’t give a fuck about the law who pop the rest of the teenage virgins before they actually generally tend to go to jail.

                  But with the post virgin 18+ girl market most chads (Mr 1 in 30) have a harem of 3 or 4 regular stacies they greatly prefer and a couple of less valued uggo backups they parade in their faces when they want to make their more valued stacies nervous because they are starting to nag, shit test, and playing stupid woman games like acting flaky and deliberately ignoring comms (and when that is accomplished the lower valued girls are kicked to the curb). So Chad really is only fucking 10-15% of women regularly the rest are de facto femcels with very strong delusions they maintain by swiping on chads and avoiding going out in public spaces or talking to guys so they might avoid any reckoning with what their real SMV is until they hit the wall… things would be greatly helped by popping the delusional dating app value.

                  That is the problem. There should not be a post virgin market, because every woman gets stuck with the first man she bangs, or, failing that, whoever will have her whether she likes it or not. Consensual marriage should only be for virgins.

                  Any attempt to fix the post virgin market is accepting the problem as a given and insoluble, but we have to solve this problem or our race and culture perishes.

                  Although this is true the quantitative change is so large that it’s almost a qualitative change. In the past, chad had to spend a few hours finding, approaching, and getting yes/no (usually yes) from a woman; as such, it wasn’t worth his while to approach hundreds or thousands of women. On tinder, chad can get hundreds of matches in one day and proposition them in a few lines. So if in the past 7/10 were available to sub-chads, now only 4/10. And back then a 4/10 was a woman with a funny looking nose or something, whereas today it is an obese woman. Apparently 5/10 and below men do not get matches on swipe apps at all.

                  You say this because you do not remember the old days. I do. The qualitative change is not all that large if you go back far enough. Things have been rapidly getting worse for a very long time.

                  If we abolish tinder and the rest, significantly more men will be in the running, and more men will get their dicks wet – substantially more. But it would not bring us back to above replacement reproduction. Would not even bring us back to the pre-tinder environment, because things were rapidly getting worse before social media.

                  Generally speaking it’s too much work to be worth it, and that’s the deal breaker. Most people will never put enough work into being careful enough, conversely they will put immense work into being the opposite of careful. Like they will document every nitty gritty detail.

                  Cracking a joke about her dog being an emergency ration has worked for me irl… Tinder, not so much. Telling her that the state she’s from, lets say California, should be destroyed for being a degenerate cesspool of communist bastards, has worked for me irl… Tinder, not so much. Going on a political econ rant at parties has gotten me lewdly hugged by women, their boyfriends giving me death glares. I wasn’t even trying to get women, just prove communism is shit.

                  Personality is a meat space analogue quality. It doesn’t quite get communicated well in quantitative digital platforms.

That means the person needs to either disappear and never be found or you need to do it somewhere with a lot of murders and he or she is just a statistic.

                  Despite the incompetence of small town and suburban cops killing someone in a suburb where no one gets murdered is going to lead to pressure for there to be a real investigation.

                  If you’re really going to fuck jailbait you need to make sure its a fatherless girl and mommy isn’t a Karen, and even then she could have some girlfriend she tells who could then tell a Karen. If one Karen finds out about it… you might be in trouble. American society nowadays has a lot of Karens. If Jim actually hits jailbait as opposed to assuming nobody cares in practice (and other than Karens and the girls father I agree they don’t) how does he sidestep the problem of Karens screaming to the authorities and everyone else.

                  The reason for all the coercive mandatory reporting is that no one cares, no one reports.

                  And should they manage to get the cops on you, the cops are looking for a reason to do nothing. When Karen tries to make trouble, she runs into a strange lethargy from top to bottom.

                  Yes you can get in trouble, but the Cathedral would have you believe that everyone is going to recoil screaming in horror and run to the authorities, and the authorities are going to leap into action energetically and effectively. There is a whole lot of it going on, and yet when someone gets in trouble for it, it makes the news. You can get in trouble, but it is just is not that common for trouble to ensue. Look. It is hard to find a virgin even among underage, so many millions of men are guilty and yet we do not see millions of men getting busted.

            AF, I just pointed out I managed to “earn” a Masters from a top 50 program in a “hard” technical field while being an alcoholic zombie not attending classes, forgetting to attend some exams, and only cramming the night before hand for the occasion I did not forget I needed to actually show up.

            The piece of paper was enough to get me hired and on a fast track to a low 6 figure civilian DOD job, benefits were another 40k to 70k or something. Nothing about this is meritocracy. >

            >back then
            >future senators and diplomats and military officers

            Back when my father barely graduated from the same school (in the same degree program no less) and worked the same DOD job decades ago, nothing about that was meritocracy either. Back when my grandfather attended a top Military academy, which he nearly failed out of, and ended up as a LTC, very little of that was meritocracy. Back when my great grandfather went to the same top Military academy, he too nearly failed out of, and ended up as a LTC, very little of that was meritocracy. Nobody fucking cares about academics.

            America has never been a meritocracy in regards to its positions of power. The only thing that has changed is the preferred group. Hell, when I went on the board for officer selection (I wanted a more powerful job than civilian work) they looked more at my grandfather’s military record than my transcripts to assess me. Why? Because nobody fucking cares about academics.

            But all I just said was purely anecdotal… right? It can’t possibly be proof of anything… right? Except my anecdotes rings true with verified events.

            Gay at Harvard plagiarized and so did MLK. Grade inflation has been happening for a century*, while all evidence points to students getting less and less smart**. Nobody fucking cares because nobody fucking cares about academics.

        Pretty clear that having just a bachelor’s degree in a non-technical field is the new working class, but I would wager those with masters/PhDs/doctorates still have higher average IQs than the population at large.

          Not very long ago, your wager would have been correct. And it still true for people who got their PhD quite a while ago. But I am pretty sure your wager is wrong for freshly minted PhDs.

            >wager those with masters/PhDs/doctorates still have higher average IQs than the population at large.

            >still true for people who got their PhD quite a while ago

            Have you seen what Jennifer Hochschild, Harvard Professor of Government and African American Studies, has been saying in reaction to Gay’s removal? The Ivy League, the focus of AF’s claim, is clearly hiring stupid people be they young, middle aged, or old, and have been doing so for decades. Chances are, anyone who has a PhD and works for the “elite” universities in a non-technical field is likely stupid no matter if they got their degree today or 40+ years ago. Hochschild predates Gay by 20 years!

            As for third rate state universities… the type I went to was full of Gay-Hochschild types. Many looked like leftover 1960s-1980s refuse. Maybe they do have a higher average IQ than the population at large, but they’ve trained and exercised their brains to be mush. I’m being hyperbolic of course. The “third rate” college I attended was still in the top 50 for engineering graduate programs in the nation… so I can only imagine how much worse the thousands of other colleges must be.

            The graduate program I went to wasn’t even that impressive either. It was clearly pay to win graduate. I had lost a close family member right before starting my Masters, and was more or less an alcoholic zombie for the next 3 years. I drank every day and every night, at times didn’t attend >90% of my classes, the only “study” was all nighter crams right before exams, and sometimes even didn’t show up for exams. I still got an adequate GPA for the degree and received the official regime stamp of approval. If I could get the degree… well degree paper isn’t exactly a good indicator for quality.

            I burnt out and didn’t proceed to the PhD program, but the Masters is the pipeline to PhD, and if the pipeline is rotted out, so is the end result. That said, the Masters program had maybe a couple hundred men in it with a few women. The university at large was in the tens of thousands and 60% female. Many of the other PhD programs are practically female only and in subjects like “education” and gender studies. Those departments completely outnumber the technical ones. Women are quite average on average… small standard deviation does that. So one only needs see that half of all PhDs are awarded to women to know half of all PhDs are tightly clumped around average.

            • MuskFan says:

              Anecdotally, the women I meet with PhDs/Graduate degrees are smarter and more stable than women with just bachelor’s degrees or no degree. They smoke weed less, vape less, drink less, less mental illness, and generally just seem healthier.

              Of course you have your blue haired lesbian freaks but they seem to be the outlier not the norm for graduate degree women, given women are over educated in general.

            • double eagle says:

              I have a phd in hard science and have worked at a low ranked/no name university that was leading in the sub-sub-field in which I worked, and a brand name US university.

              The quality of staff, especially management and administration, but even scientific staff, was significantly higher at the former. There was also a very obvious fear of expressing any contrary opinion at the famous US university, whereas at the other place discussion was more open.

              My bachelor in science is from the UK, and at that time it appeared to me that university admissions and grades were meritocratic, though of course nobody believed that getting the top pass in your degree was more useful for your career than getting a top internship at a firm. That may have since changed.

              • Pax Imperialis says:

                >The quality of staff […]

                Hard science programs are somewhat insular from the rest of the university, and I was largely looking at the non-technical fields which by far outnumber you.

                Have you talked to African/Women/Gender/etc professors and their students? Trying to create distinctions of higher or lower quality is sort of moot when they are absolute trash no matter where you go, and they hold university administrations by the balls.

                >That may have since changed.

                They have, at least in academia jobs. There was a guy in the Electrical Engineering PhD program I knew who didn’t understand magnets on a practical level. Like being surprised at a magnet sticking to a refrigerator door level of didn’t understand. He was Black. Eventually he got hired by the university.

                Then I noticed many of the Post Docs were Brown or Black, but almost all of the graduate PhD students doing the actual work were Chinese or some other type of Asian with a few Whites. You’d think the PhD students doing the work would be the ones eventually doing post Doc work…

                Then again, getting hired in academia has never been meritocratic. How well and how much the professors like you, and more importantly how well and how much university admin likes you is how you get hired.

    At the height of the Cold War, sympathy for Russia and an understanding of the Russian point of view were common among our governing class; this was “sophisticated,” and only backward powerless rubes considered it disloyalty. Now they have the crudest, most cartoonish and propagandistic image of Russia imaginable, and they call the backward powerless rubes traitors when we don’t share it.

    This road goes directly to full and formal NATO involvement, and the next stop after that is nuclear exchange.

          That’s already happening right now. Democratic cities are getting crushed, and the flow of migrants shows no signs of slowing down. Why do Democrats still think open borders is a good idea? I suppose because the party was long ago taken over by the welfare-industrial complex, which sees each cold, hungry immigrant as a claim on federal welfare dollars.

          Now Democratic mayors are desperately pleading for more federal help, and Biden isn’t returning their phone calls. They’re less vocal in criticizing Greg Abbott because he clearly doesn’t care; he’s just giving immigrants what they want, and giving Democrats what they say they want.

        I’m sort of of the mind that you condemn someone when you can overtake them.

        Many pseudo leftist movements like 1920s Singhs Sabha or 1970s/80s Khalistan,
        increased religious observance, and encouraged Sikhs to arm themselves.
        We still respect the Shaheeds (martyrs) of those movements.
        The worst excesses of those eras like post-modernism or marxism were still avoided.
        However, Sikhs did overall shift left – small victory or smaller defeat? Idk.

        Book mentions the cutting of beards among young men.
        Cutting of hair among kids & waning of initiation.
        The Kirpan being mostly worn in miniature.

        History of the size of the Kirpan here:

        The Singh Sabha did increase the size of the Kirpan commonly worn.
        Not sure if the Khalistanis did, although it’s increasing since 2010.

        The sword is correct basically.
        War is fervor first and foremost in the hearts and minds of men.

        Patriarchy, and the maintenance of Hair/Weapons is what matters to me.
        That alone is difficult.
        My only interests right now are military training/fitness.

        We respect all men who fall in battle.
        My belief is that war/natural selection will basically solve most ‘small’ issues.
        For example, 1750s Nihangs wore large turbans – 50 years later they did not (war).

        The only large issue is the size of a whore’s hole.
        Even a black hole shrinks with time, but never a woman……


        • Sher Singh says:

          I guess the question comes down to would Sikhi survive?
          Obviously, those movements will say they did what they did for the survival of the quom (community).

          That propaganda or rhetoric makes people overlook their leftist excesses and paradigms.

          Will discuss that with my congregation.

          The other question is if war is an inherent good?
          Does the quom remain alive with a cool temper or with hot blood? Is a war every generation or so even small inherently beneifical?

          Are you looking to seize victory or just avoid the worst excesses (defeat). Is that mindset of aspiring for the largest heights, and not settling for small things what ultimately seperates the Khalsa of Maharaja Ranjit Singh from the modern versioN??

          The problem that governments and private organisations face with carry is that there are some people, quite a lot of people, who should not be allowed to carry. The solution that is applied, which somewhat works, is carry permit. Surprisingly, it turns out that very minimal process suffices to eliminate all the bad apples, because the necessary forethought and capability for literacy means that any process at all excludes all the bad apples, just the effort of making an application and filling out some forms seems to eliminate everyone who should not be allowed to carry. However a better outcome would be recognised religious institutions issuing carry permits to members that they view as in in good standing.

  25. Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

    Maneuver is most valuable on an operational level in environments of limited information. In 1942, a whole division of gun carriages could drive through picket lines and take up blocking positions behind enemy formations before a response could be organized. Limitations of importation technology for most of the history of war meant that if you gained operational momentum you could keep rolling the enemy back as far as you could maintain the tempo, as all his forces would effectively be isolated pockets in disarray, rather than a single army acting as a whole.

    In environments of ‘battlefield transparency’, mobility in general is also essential, but in a more strategic sense; anything that can’t move is a – literally – sitting duck for a precision strike that can come one day or another.

    • Epimetheus says:

      Operational surprise is impossible in an environment saturated with satellite and drone coverage, even if you weren’t talking about your secret operational plan on international television. Without being able to conceal your massed strength and axis of main effort, you’re just driving closely-packed assets towards guys who are ready and prepared for you.

      Putin is not the ruler of a white nation building an alliance against whites and against his own people. He is the white Christian ruler of a multi ethnic empire building a coalition against a rival empire, an empire that has long since ceased to be ruled by white people or Christians.

      Your payload is “these guys hate other races, hate other religions, and hate women, so let use that to derail the movement for independence from the Global American Empire.”

      No, we do not hate any of those, except the demon worshipper woke. We hate malign evil. Which is a fine basis for coalition against the Global American Empire.

        This looks to me like a war against white people (and against all sorts of Yakuts and others by the way, but that worries me a little less). The importation of low-grade migrants with low intelligence and the distribution of citizenship to them makes sense only as a hostile act. If Putin imported talented Chinese, and not people who go to live off benefits and crime, I would accept your argument.

        I also want blacks, Hindus and Jews to eat LGBT, feminism and so on. This is in my interests, although I don’t like sodomites, I will somehow survive that Niger or another African country has legalized this. Putin has the opposite vision, which is why patriarchy is not suppressed only among Caucasian Muslims

          He is importing elites and the children of elites from countries in conflict with the Global American Empire to build cohesion between his elites and theirs. Thus for example, he is not importing vast numbers of dot Indian H1Bs, because India is playing both sides against the middle. He is importing from countries that are seriously in conflict with the Global American Empire. Thus his target is obviously the Global American Empire, not his white population, while the target of the Global American Empire is obviously their white population.

            That said, his shill material is quite strong because it is true. Putin and the men he represents are essentially the least “based” faction in the Russian government. He is a direct descendent of the Soviet bureaucracy, albeit one of the most fight-y parts, and his personal outlook appears to be materialist globalism.

  27. The Cominator says:

    In the 1st world war Germany only tried to regain a war of movement in the great 1917 offensive and this was a desperation move to try to knock out France before American troops could arrive.

    Its plausible to argue that maybe they should have dug in (with Russia out of the war… they didn’t have that till very late in 1917) and hoped that American causalties trying to fight on the offensive would have compelled them to make peace (Ataturk defeated a more half hearted allied effort this way which probably had more of a role than anyone talks about in creating the stab in the back legend) but its hard to say how it would have worked out.

  28. Kunning Druegger says:

    “Germany lost the war, because it kept stubbornly trying to regain war of movement in France, to knock France out of the war in a quick blow, as the ISW has been stubbornly trying to knock Russia out the war with a quick blow. This was more generals trying to prove that invading Belgium had been a good idea, than it was a rational military strategy. And trying to take Russia out with a quick blow is the ISW trying to prove that endlessly provoking Russia with ever escalating provocations and threats has been a good idea.”

    This is a thesis that could launch a storied and intimidating career, and you just kind of shove it into your ongoing string of blog posts. There are very few in the Academe with eyes to so this, but I can see a series of essays, a book, and a lecture series all based on the idea that the Imperial German general staff operated under the rubric that they could do nothing that might be construed as an admission, tacit or otherwise, that the feint through Belgium was a mistake. You’ve tied it to the Russo Ukraine War, but I see it in every modern war. It’s not ego, not completely, but there is some strange groupthink component that seems to be unavoidable in war by committee… this is what I mean, it is a near endlessly extendable topic, indeed it is, in my opinion, a new lens to view warfare. Maybe someone’s already said it, I can’t say. For my part, I am fascinated.

        The entire globohomo system is like this. The system needs to be based on success in aptitude test and wargames (or for the non military some kind of skill simulator tests).

Clannishness in business is a good thing. people who are smart but don’t have any capacity for human interaction shouldn’t be promoted.

            For one thing because things are bad now, too many suckup midwits are embedded in the system now and it needs to be flushed. Private small businesses can hire and do whatever they want.

            And of course they should be promoted, thank God Newton was promoted despite being notoriously anti-social. And no the 1970s was not like this that is when they started doing away with the aptitude system… the Army system that won WWII was FAR more like my system. You didn’t even get to be an officer without having an IQ of at least 120 ever due to the rare battlefield commission for an act of suicidal heroism and bravery.

            • @The Cominator @Kunning Druegger

              Gentlemen, you are both right. Newtons need to be promoted – to the right kinds of jobs for them. And not to the wrong kinds of jobs for them. The kinds of jobs where they figure *things* out. Not the kinds of jobs that revolve around making/inspiring *men* do extraordinary efforts.

              So I side with DK more while admitting TC has a point, too. When we are talking about promotions *in general leadership positions*, Newton is not a good candidate. Newton is an excellent candidate to specific *specialist* positions, those that are in their very nature a supporting role to general leaders. But a very important supporting role!

              I do not have Newtons genius, but I do have his asocial nature. I have given up on becoming a corporate manager. Rather I am the free-floating expert who does not really have a fixed position in the hierarchy. Sigma, so to speak. Not much being bossed around but also not much bossing others around.

                So, in your opinion, a sigma male is a thing? In the sense that Vox describes them and their characteristics?

          • The Cominator says:

            It also guarantees that even if you did a theoretically all merit system with no racism or even “sexism” it would be all white, asian and some jewish males will always monopolize all high positions. You will never have high ranking women, niggers, spics or poos with my system ever.

              Why would I trust a system that allows muds and jews in it in the first place?

              • The Cominator says:

                My shill sense is tingling, why did you leave out women who absolutely do not belong in any institutional management? The only mud group worse than women are poos.

                • Zorost says:

                  If you kicked women out of a society the society would not last long. Reproduction, and all that. It seems artificial methods are being researched, so perhaps there is hope for a woman-free society at some point in the future. Not saying that would be desirable, simply that it is currently not possible to kick women out of a society if you want that society to survive.

                  We’re not talking about kicking women out of all life, we’re talking about kicking them out of managing anything (unless they own it anyway).

            You need both. You need the popular alpha male chieftain type, but also the half-mad shaman who can think outside the box and see unseen threats. The system needs to recognize mavericks and innovators who will often be socially unpleasant and even disorganized and dysfunctional and somehow quarantine or protect them until it can figure out whether they’re really useful or not.

            Otherwise all you get is yes men thinking they can drive all the way to Crimea in six weeks, because the guy who would’ve challenged the doomed groupthink paradigm got purged by Karen and Shaniqua before he ever made it close to the map room.

            • The Cominator says:

              Yeah small businesses fine make the boss responsible for all promotion and position the owner is a freeholder with absolute power over his property, but in the army and large state institutions bureaucrats and officers should be subject to some kind of aptitude and merit system and not merely the subjective rating of their boss. They are not absolute rulers they are agents of the king and not freeholders.

              • jim says:

                If you are in a position to hire and fire people for your own benefit, your judgement is probably more accurate than an IQ test. If someone else is in a position to hire and fire for you, you should not altogether trust his judgement.

                Should be gutted and what minimum required to function mostly privatized. State Church and High Inquisitor, and the President for Life are the necessary structures. The rest quickly becomes a large batch of, as Jim likes to call them, overmighty servants.

                You sound like AF a bit, not quite so insane but inclining in that direction, when you advocate for Bureaucracy Done Right this time with Meritocracy.

              • The Cominator says:

                I agree on gutting the administrative state and i said i dont like it, but you wont be able to get rid of all of it and certainly not the military. And the administrative state will have to expand a bit in war… what parts we do have should go back to the iq requirement system.

                • jim says:

                  The sovereign’s business is war and large scale internal conflict. Thus his business is diplomacy, the military, and taxation to support the military. Any time he meddles in something else, he is not empowering himself, he is empowering his dangerously overmighty servants. He is losing control, which was the death of King Louis XVI, and the fall of so many Chinese empires.

                  When the Sovereign says “war with the outgroup” all his subjects must be at war, and anyone that makes private peace should hang. When the sovereign says “Peace with the outgroup” all his subjects must be at peace, and honour the arrangement agreed to, and if anyone does not, the Sovereign should hand the offender, or the offender’s head, over to the outgroup, even if the offender is popular and the outgroup unpopular.

                  The Sovereign also needs to regulate status competition to direct it into prosocial channels — but the root of status competition is group violence. Thus, when then Charles the second gave the invisible college the status of the Royal society, the Puritans did not like it, feeling that theology rather public experiment should be the root of truth, and organised a mob, which mob Charles put down. Conversely, when mobs attacked Puritans, he was strangely ineffectual in putting them down.

                • The Cominator says:

                  Yes I know all this but not sure if it agrees or disagrees with me.

                  But earlier you seemed to agree that the monarch really can’t trust his agents entirely to do his hiring (thus implying you thought giving superiors absolute control over rating subordinates was perhaps not ideal in any system like the army or where the sovereign would have to rely on bureaucrats to some degree). You never quite weighed in on my proposal to start gatekeeping ranks again with rigid IQ requirements* (and I mean where we need to have military ranks or an administrative state, btw I’ll also add that idiot inquisitors/secret policemen will be an absolute disaster). I just don’t see much downside to doing so. We’re not talking about forcibly tying the hands of freeholders with IQ requirements in their own businesses (though I expect many will enthusiastically bring back the system when its legal and furthermore practiced in the military) we’re talking about tying the hands of agents of the state from promoting suckups, midwits, schemers and sycophants over smarter more honest men.

                  * which was at its height at the 1940s and 1950s in the United States, and which despite the fact that we reactionaries never much like the administrative system of the New Deal much… that system won WWII a two front war at half the population we have now, and most reactionaries will if pressed will reluctantly admit that no the system especially when the socialism aspect of it was dismantled in the late 40s worked fairly well

          • skippy says:

            “If you are so smart and good, why do your superiors hate you?”

            Doesn’t work like that. Of course smart people can play the game but then their skills will be used to damage the organization. The point is that the middle managers are not the ‘principal’ but ‘agents’ and their interests diverge from those of the organization.

            I worked in a GAE organization for a while and everything about promotion was arranged around your immediate superiors’ opinion of you. And to be clear, this is not about being socially competent or a “chad”; if you oppose too many people (even if they are wrong) you would be taken out regardless how well liked you are socially, similarly if you come across as too competent or too much of a leader that is a way to provoke jealousy and make enemies.

            This kind of system is a machine for selecting for mediocrity and institutionalising groupthink. It does not pluck out charismatic jocks and promote them above perhaps more competent retiring nerd types – that is not the problem at all.

        • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

          ‘Removing superiors opinion for promotion’ is exactly what the Human resources Paradigm is; and not only did it not get rid of lickspittle hacks, it entrenched them in an environment that was more favorable than ever before.

          >The system needs to be based on success in aptitude test

          The number two aptitude test in the world is the favor of the mentor.

          (The number one is The Thing Itself.)

          • The Cominator says:

            No human resources is a government comissarate which screens all applicants for ideological conformity it may have that effect but it hardly removes suck up marathons.

            Corporations these days strangely rarely promote anyone at all internally… I cannot tell you what the cause of this is I do not claim to know every aspect of the globohomo system especially as it intertwines with fake private institutions. What I propose would block any Shaniquas darkies or women from being promoted anywhere forever. It would only be for large institutions in the government or those entangled very close too.

            Nothing would stop a midwit from running his own business but no midwit or dumb should ever run the top university, state backed research lab, or command an army.

            • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

              >No human resources is a government comissarate which screens all applicants for ideological conformity

              Exactly. When you ‘depersonalize’ things and make ‘the test’ the ultimate object of power, then it becomes the schelling point for convergence; and then selection for kakistocracy becomes not just an accident, but enshrined into law. How do you stop The Tests from being debased? Well, beings whose opinions are superior to The Tests of course; otherwise they could not even be generated in the first place, you know?

              Bureaucratization of personnel decision didn’t remove fiat from the equation; it simply changed who exactly would be wielding the fiat; with attendant consequences in what exactly is selected for by the system.

              • The Cominator says:

                Except the left after the FDR era HATED HATED HATED IQ tests in large institutions when they existed and used the civil rights laws to get rid of them. They were a huge barrier to idiocracy and while they were perhaps initially imposed in the early progressive era I would say the evidence supports them being one of the two good things the early progressives actually did (like eugenics).

                Not having to suckup to your superiors too much reduces the amount of mindless ideological conformity in the system since the intelligent subordinate though of course required to obey lawful superior orders is free to criticize them, call them stupid even to mock them with it only effecting the small part of his merit score that is his superior rating if he can crush the enemy in his wargames and show higher intelligence in his IQ tests and crush his other aptitude tests he still gets promoted. Yes some conformity is good so give his superior a small part of his rating fine I agree, but give most of it to performance and aptitude tests.

                No Shaniquas, no idiot suckups.

                • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

                  They hated IQ tests and the argument against them was that being anointed by their seminaries was a better test of virtue, or by arguing that judging virtue was unvirtuous, or that virtue didn’t even exist anyways, and sometimes all three at once; they did not argue against them by saying that the racist foremen or property owners were better judges of virtue, because they knew that would also work against the bioleninism they wanted to impose (and if the property owner has leave to make such judgements, then they have leave to streamline things for themselves with tools of their choice as well; like cognitive tests).

                • The Cominator says:

                  The IQ tests were only ever in
                  1) large institutions
                  2) businesses that actually wanted to use them
                  then they became illegal you couldnt use them as an employer even if you wanted to.

                  Another thing a rigid IQ requirement would have prevented, John McCain. Not even his old man the admiral could have gotten his idiot son a commission if the rigid IQ minimum was in place.

                • Pseudo-Chrysostom says:

                  The whole matter here is the fact that no good tests prevail without men who have the authority to make them prevail. There is no dichotomy between rule of law and rule of man; both are rule of man, one furtively, one openly.

                  New Dealers didn’t string up red tape over in-house testing by organizations by arguing against the idea of depersonalized selection, they struck it down by arguing against that form depersonalization in favor of their own form of depersonalization, because they were also pushing depersonalization for their purposes. The anti-apprenticeship frame was maintained in any case.

                • Kunning Drueger says:

                  Precisely. All forms of Constitutionalism are selling the same thing, all that varies is the wrapping paper. Rule of men should be rule by Men. The boss gets to play favorites and pick who roses because he’s the boss. If he picks retards, the venture should collapse. People should be rewarded for their successes and punished for their failings. No magical test is going to prevent an evil system of cretins rewarding simpletons from developing, that must be done by hand by Man.

                  Asserting that blind IQ tests will fix things is no different than arguing that the Constitution will fix things, it just needs to be used properly.

                • The Cominator says:

                  The monarch can of course do that (though it should mean he has an “accident” in short order if he picks retards) but other than by dispensation of the monarch himself “institutions” intertwined with the state should not have that ability. Short of a royal/imperial decree your rank needs to be capped by IQ mostly as IQ was understood in the old days when the system seemed to work very well.

                • The Cominator says:

                  Ill also add in the age of rigid IQ tests the institutions of the administrative state as much as i generally hate them performed incredibly well compared to how they started performing almost immediately after they were abolished.

                • C4ssidy says:

                  IQ tests for army rank sound a lot like previous blog posts talking about the mandarin system producing poor quality officers compared to the semi-merit based (mostly aristocracy/heritable) British ones. Regarding simulations, look at any high end game playing, speedrunning communities for example, trannies everywhere. The mandarins sound like the military equivalent of speed-runner trannies. Every system we know gets gamed. To get the Elons you need some kind of market mechanism that doesn’t get gamed, probably by having a lot of mercenary bands and buccaneers and granting royal commissions to the ones which prove themselves on the market. Then once you do get your Elon/Werner/Wellington give them command of the whole army and let them pick on intuition. Do you think Elon would pick a hiring system based automatically on test scores? I think spacex would end up filled with trannies. There is plenty of smart evil around

                • The Cominator says:

                  The Mandarins had gay shit like writing tests whatever it was testing for it wasn’t an IQ test, Patton and Terry Allen de La Mesa had no trouble making it under the IQ requirement system. Unfortunately the faggot Omar Bradley did too, I’m not claiming perfection. But certainly the military and the institutions of the administrative state performed far far better then as compared to now.

                  Also I’m pretty sure the “scholar-officials” were distinct from (and looked down) on army officers.

          Guys.. really? You’re talking about feminization here. Do I really have to point out the obvious?

          The basic building block of male organization is the team. The basic form of female organization is the clique.

          The male team self sorts into a hierarchy based on merit, i.e., proficiency toward the team’s goals, whatever they are.

          The female clique self sorts into a hierarchy based on propriety, i.e., adherence to the clique’s moral standards, whatever they are.

          As society gets more and more feminized, merit is out and propriety is in.

          You’re complaining that the military high brass is selected based on asskissery not merit. Well yes, of course. How could it possibly be otherwise in a feminized society?

          This is why feminism is cancer. Society’s organs get increasingly infested by incompetence until they start failing, slowly, then suddenly. Exactly like cancer.

            Allowing this through, because saying that men and women are different, in ways that render women incapable of large scale social organisation – that large scale social organisation is as male as making life is female, is probably a thought crime. Shills are allowed to notice differences, but not differences that imply women and men should have separate spheres of activity.

              Why are you suspicious this one is a shill… I see nothing in his post that I disagree with really except that
              1) Males in the absence of a group activity can have cliques too albeit far more internally stable and loyal than female ones
              2) Not sure that female cliques are about “moral standards” its just kind of random shifting alliances with perhaps occasional pairs of women who are more loyal to each other (like the sith always two there are) than clique politics.
