This is a coaching session from Dave.
I left out his final comment on marijuana because I think commenters would obsess on that one paragraph. I hope this is an undeserved insult, but I hope it is useful cautionary one:
TV is an irrelevant thing because of the Internet. The real minds on the Internet show through like a cop’s 500-lumen flashlight. It has been fascinating to watch the Internet’s influence on the markets. The whole market commentariat evolves together with lightening speed based upon the highest IQs. I can trace the influencers with complete transparency and immediately detect those who have failed their homework or whose intellectual horsepower isn’t up to snuff.
This is a new world with its speed and access for those with IQ horsepower. The blocking intermediary has been flushed out and passes to elite clubs have been made much easier to obtain.
This process is in early stages. Take a look at Facebook.com. Facebook.com is yet another incipient engine of conspiracy, a fabulous tool in intelligent hands for loyalty coupled with a conspiracy is a badge of social class.
For example, I remember as a kid the Patty Hearst saga: These “revolutionaries” calling themselves the “Symbionese Revolutionary Army” sold each other out in the less than 5 seconds flat. Revolutionaries indeed! They were double-digit IQ mutt niggers pretending to be revolutionaries.
Pretending is something we do profusely as kids and we don’t usually drop the habit in adulthood. The kid who put together Facebook.com is a revolutionary. He is not a pretender. He puts to shame all Wordists.
Responsibility is there for those willing to shoulder it and pretending comes to an end when you realize our world is far more deterministic than our “rising expectations” culture dares to acknowledge. Fear takes the driver’s seat, ebbing and flowing over great secular eras. It has been so long since America has known the flow, the mass of Americans have forgotten it exists, yet the competitive struggle deepens and the consequences for delusion become ever more onerous.
“The Tough Guy approach is to learn “both sides,” to aggressively Question. But he is already into step two. His big concern is LOOKING doubtful, not in analyzing reality.”
I always thought that meant he knew who was wrong and was protecting him. So when he puts on the tough image, I’m thinking “What a wuss,” and he can tell he’s not fooling me, so he gets pissed.
You got it!
All my life the people who chickened out did so by sayng they were just being “realistic” and “experienced.” No member of the Masturbatin Generation said, “I’m not going to go out there and get my butt beat with you,” they said, “I was IN World War II, and I MADE my REAL sacrifices.”
The Masturbation Generation never said, “I had my butt kicked into line and was taught to obey without question.” They said, “I learned out in the REAL world that you just have to settle for things as they REALLY are.
I keep asking you to consider WHY any information is PRODUCED.
This is very different from asking you to DOUBT. It goes deeper, and should take MORE time. The Tough Guy approach is to learn “both sides,” to aggressively Question. But he is already into step two. His big concern is LOOKING doubtful, not in analyzing reality. If you “study the question,” that means YOU know all about it.
And for the Tough Guy, everybody seeing that you know it all is where the process stops. What good does any Wisdom do if it doesn’t show how wise YOU are?
Please note that I began here by analyzing WHY the Tough Guy says what he says, not by casting doubt on it from my endless fund of information about all aspects of the question. Why do ***I*** use this approach? Because the Tough Guy is aiming to look tough. I, on the other hand, am interested solely in power in the real world.
Look at that word “real.” Do you think it is accidental that whenever we hear the word “reality” it means something awful? But you could do this for YOURSELF: WHY does the word “reality” always mean something awful? It is because the person using that word is saying,
1) ***I*** really know what reality is, because of my virtues.
2) ***I*** have “been there.”
3) ***I*** am tough and experienced.
In other words, the person who defines “reality” is talking entirely about HIMSELF, which is precisely what reality is NOT about.
The most Tough Guy things I have ever done were a COVER. If you have papers to show you are working with a sewing machine company and someone figures out that you are actually a combat merc, they stop looking. To look any further would be like finding someone is covering up an armed robbery and then saying, “Well, this must be a cover for something SERIOUS.”
Like acting the Dumb Southerner in DC, this analysis of reality has a very, VERY practical side. That is WHY it is REALITY. That someone may be using being a merc as a cover simply doesn’t occur to people. Why?
Because the information people are used to from Tough Guys is aimed at making Tough Guys look TOUGH. Merc is the toughest so merc is the end of the chain.
In other words, “reality” begins and ends with his being a Tough Guy.
I just saw it for the first time.
A fighitng bug is a wonderful idea, but check and be sure we’re not using one we can be sued for.
“Ironically, the safe, comfortable past is an elegant trap…”
Thinking ahead and thinking things through does NOT mean central planning.
Populist leadership can be as simple as recognizing worth and expertise and drumming up support for those that have them, while at the same time recognizing what is insane and harmful and sweeping such people out of the way. But somebody, a generalist, needs to have an idea of what is going on, or there will be no change, no revolution, no politics.
Another example I gave in the past is how the West was won. There was no central planning. There was a little politics and there were guide books. The guide books described the trails heading West, how to survive in the wilderness, and how to scratch out a living wherever you were. This was revolutionary. This was planning. But it was NOT central planning.
There was a kind of bureaucracy involved in printing and selling the books, in the manufacture of the wagons, and in holding a group together while tracking months through the Great American Desert and keeping scalps away from bloodthirsty Injuns. There was planning, but no CENTRAL planning.
It is not that anyone thinks you are trying to create a mass movement, it’s that you still have more practical knowledge to share with those who could help you use it. I know you are tired, so if that’s it, then we will focus on organizing what you have already written, which is a job well done. Organizing always brings out new insights and general conclusions and this is what Dave is doing at National Salvation.
1) The white race is DOOMED, because it is due to decline from seven hundred million (guess) to (guess) three hundred million in this century.
2) Jews rule the world and are going to KEEP ruling it, though their population is about one in five hundred of the people on earth and is dropping like a rock.
Those who talk about Change cannot deal with real, honest-to-God change, just as the last people who know love are those who shout Love incessantly. No one is a better hater than a person who insists he is fighting Hate.
Marxism believed it was obvious that the best economy would be a PLANNED one. Instead of all that inefficient competition everyone would just pull together in an organized fashion. The term Social Progress has been laughed out of existence. Now they call it Change, though I haven’t even heard that term in a while.
But Social Progress or Change, it means that Political Correctness knows exactly where society is going, that it is going in his direction, so Change is on his side. Which is the exact set of assumptions that got Social Progress laughed off the map.
Wordists all claim to know exactly where the world is headed. Every Wordist also knows that if he could consistently predict the stock market that way, he could BUY the world in a few years. When peabrains like that actually take over an economy, anybody who should be trusted with sharp objects should know what will happen. But the experts and intellectuals declared it a success until it literally collapsed before their eyes.
The fatal weakness of Change is that it cannot deal with the slightest bit of real change. Marx assumed that what he thought were the trends of his day would continue unchanged. The proletariat would get poorer and more desperate. Even as he wrote, the first we of the city proletariat was becoming management and beginning to buy property and workers were being given the vote.
None of this concerned Marx in the least. A good Wordist never lets reality slow him down.
Everything here RELATES. To an extent a present reader finds it impossible to conceive, the Middle East was the absolute basis of ALL thinking that thought itself civilized In Marx’s day. There was no real change. Every Great Civilization progressed through rigid phases. The High Culture was the pyramid-building and scribe phase Egypt had reached and we had fallen from.
You don’t need a free market to tell you how to build a pyramid. In fact you don’t need a market economy to do ANYTHING that twentieth century history says High Cultures did. All you need is scribes to plan and organize it.
Meanwhile out in the real world slamming an Egypt-style planned economy into the modern world was like taking the Wright Brothers’ plane up against a modern jet fighter.
And that is why what I say sounds so confusing. After a lifetime of being given exact plans and specifications for building an endless number of Wordist pyramids, I am trying to get you back to a system that visibly takes Wordism apart when it goes for a test flight. I do not NEED a mass movement. I need to push certain basics to keep the movement in a rational direction.
But, as with the economy, the apparent winner is the equivalent of planning, the torchlight parade approach. Just as a Great Civilization was based on building pyramids, a great movement is based on getting millions of people out on the street. That is why someone like me spends WEEKS arranging that “spontaneous” crowd when The Candidate shows up. That’s the way Harry Truman did it and, by gum, that’s the way it’s done NOW!
Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, mass meetings are strictly for show. The real campaign is one-on-one or the despised “campaign slogan,” which is really an attempt to express the public mood, however crude. It is not “good” in the sense Marx would define a “good” economy. A campaign slogan is as hit-or-miss, when judged on its “goodness” as the latest trend in consumer spending. But have you ever LISTENED to the total, changeless crap that is shouted at mass meetings. They are mobs, with the IQ of mobs.
The age of TV moved from the mass meeting to the slogan. Has anybody noticed that we are no longer in the age where television is the Latest Thing? In our age, an idea very rapidly becomes either outdated or a challenge that must be met. This is the first time in history when the ordinary person has the POWER to DEMAND an answer. It is very, VERY hard to do so, but one of my favorite things is watching the old “professional journalists” get together and moan about this modern age when “professionals” no longer control every outlet.
Thirty years ago everyone knew who the Anchor Man on CBS was. I don’t. IS there one?
People always want me to present a more “solid” set of ANSWERS. Everyone you know can present you with a solid list of what constitutes Change. Everyone but me. I deal in a world that changes from year to year. Rule One: No kind of Change can deal with real changes.
The most “progressive” economies on earth proved that.
Pain asked two questions.
I’ll deal with the second one first:
(2) Only you seem to have the experience in a bureaucracy to know how to make it work, or how to do without it. If populists won control of the government, how could they make sure that the bureaucracy did not work against them?
Pain, I spend most of my time dealing with questions like your first one: Why hasn’t the revolution taken place yet? That does no GOOD at all, but that is what people challenge me about.
Meantime, there is REAL world out there, where the revolution HASN’T taken place yet, and a bunch of amateurs quoting amateurs. I ran into that during the Reagan Administration.
I am trying to explain how to THINK abut real power in the real world. For every minute readers spend thinking abut what I am trying to tell them, nine minutes go to the standard stuff.
I keep repeating, “You can have the money, you can have the fame, you can have the t\titles. All I want to do is rule the world.” I realize that readers are going to think that’s cute and then go back to preaching and capitalizing RACE and stuff the way AFKAN does.
I keep repeating that the important things I have worked out seem so obvious they are humorous. Most readers think that’s cute and go back to routine thinking.
Then you ask me how a group taking power will recognize and get expertise. That is why I work so hard here to debunk present “expertise!”
It’s right HERE, Pain!
It I true that other animals have learned to avoid snakes that have brightly-colored skin. Bright color is the snake’s way of telling you that he is poisonous. The reason e wants other animals it is poisonous is by its brightness of color. In fact, there is a frog in Brazil that is poisonous and it, too, has bright-colored skin.
The reason these poisonous beings have that skin color is to show that they ARE poisonous. Granted that an animal which attacked and killed them would EVENTUALLY die for it, but in the meantime the poisonous animal could be dead from the attack, so the death of its attacker would do it little good.
So most animals avoid bright-colored snakes just for the color of their skin.
WE, who have been trained by Mommy Professor, know this is a pointless prejudice. There are bright-colored snakes that not only have no poison, they have no TEETH. So it is RIDICULOUS to avoid a reptile because of its skin color.
Up to half of the young men with black skin are in the prison and parole system. But, as Mommy Professor points out, at least half of them are NOT. So if woman gets on an elevator alone at night with a man, his skin color should make no difference. This is an official statement from CBS in its guide as to how to avoid violence.
So anyone who would not pick up a snake because it is bright colored is a racist and anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
I said before that no one would check out the Black Sea bottom because no one had an INTEREST on checking the Black Sea bottom. From Bible thumpers to social scientists to Political Correctness to Marxism, everybody likes history just the way it is, rooted in the Middle East.
BUT the guy who made millions locating the Titanic found this to be a great project. HE now has a vested interest in pushing the IMPORTANCE of history up around Mount Ararat which, in historical terms, is about as Middle Eastern as Mongolia today.
This is how things REALLY work, and it is impossible to explain to someoe who WANTS not to understand. Most people have a vested interest in seeing the world as they see it now.
But in the real world research is not done by abstract entities, it is done by PEOPLE. A PERSON has no incentive to go after truth. As I said, Futurology has nothing to do with the future. It has to do with trends in Futurology, getting grants and publicity in the field, TODAY.
I was just looking at a Time Magazine from November 21, 1932. In the International section, discussion of German politics was under Belgium. Belgium was up in arms over what the experts said was the certainty of the restoration of the Kaiser in Germany. Belgium, which had been invaded in 1914 and occupied by the Kaiser’s Germany for four years, had parades in the streets against the restoration of the Kaiser.
In its report on the Munich Putsch in 1923, Time referred to Hitler as a “monarchist.” World War I dominated their memory, and the Kaiser was NEWS in 1932, whereas Hitler was a nobody.
One talking head was quoted as saying,” It is not a question of reestablishing the monarchy, the question is how it will be reestablished,” in other words, would it be the still-living Kaiser Wilhelm II or his successor?
Kaiser Wilhelm II lived in exile in the Netherlands. When Hitler occupied that country in 1940, the former Kaiser was guarded from all contact by German troops. He died in 1941 under the Third Reich.
For someone making a living as a writer for Time, the readers had to be given something they recognized and loved or hated. That meant the Kaiser in 1932.
U.S. explorers said on Wednesday they have found signs of human habitation hundreds of feet below the Black Sea where a catastrophic flood occurred about 7,500 years ago, which some scientists say is linked to the biblical story of Noah.
Explorer Robert Ballard, famous for discovering the wreck of the Titanic, said his National Geographic expedition found a ”rectangular structure,” possibly that of a building, about 310 feet below the sea’s surface, indicating people lived there before a massive flood inundated the area.
“It’s architecture and artifacts were of the Neolithic bronze age, which is from about 7,000 years ago,” said Ballard. The team’s chief archeologist, Fredrik Hiebert, described the finding as the “Pompeii of landscapes” and said it was typical of the wattle and daub homes seen on land.
“This is a major discovery that will begin to rewrite the history of cultures in this key area between Europe, Asia and the ancient Middle East,” said Hiebert, an archeologist from the University of Pennsylvania.
“***But please help us focus here. I think there are very many people who read this blog, but don’t post comments because they are unsure what you want.”

Peter, don’t fret; Bob’s just pissed because I wouldn’t apologize to Hardric for his unwillingness to condemn the welfare crowd. If Bob can’t get his way he’s gonna’ stomp his cane and shake his finger until the neighbors all know his milk’s curdled. It has nothing to do with anything other than ego and old age irritabiliy. On the positive side it shows he still has spark. On the negative side it makes him look like an old coot. Either way, we’re gonna’ hear about it.
Needless to say, Mark’s wrong. I’m Practically Perfect in Every Way.
But Mark is saying more or less what I said below. This is a rough and tumble crowd. The person you must be satisfied with is YOU.
I just want Mark to get off this and on to something else, but the point we have here is CRITICAL: You should realize that, if you stick your finger in here it can get bit, just as I bit Mark’s and he bit mine.
If you can’t deal with that UNDER A CHANGEABLE PSEUODONYM, you won’t do us much good out in the real world anyway.
What the instructor is trying to tell us is actually quite simple. Ideologies that don’t work, just don’t work. They never can work because they are flawed and the laws of the universe can and will never let them work.
The Soviet system was broken from the beginning. Even if all the “experts” (Who happen to be crypto-soviets) said it was an efficient system, in the end, it fell to pieces.
Multicultural Democracies don’t work. Just like communism, it has no base within the laws of the universe.
Despite the systems’ own torch light parades, which may feature the “model” multicultural school or the “very loving” interracial relationship, it only appears to work because of the effort put into these parades. In fact, the best comparison we can use was the BIG BAD May Day parades through Red Square we used to see. Today’s equivalent is the above mentioned “model” multicultural school.
But just as the missiles we saw were fakes, made just for the Parades, what we don’t see at the “model” school is the racial achievement gap test scores packed tightly away in the Principal’s desk.
The victories that the instructor speaks of are not recognized by the average expert. When the power structure gets its soon to be “North American Union” it will open the flood gates for non-whites. Many a “torch light searching racialists” will fall into despair as they figure the struggle is lost. However, this is only because the “torch light lookers” don’t know about the diversity price curve which states, as the number of non-whites goes up, the amount of tolerance from Whites goes down.
You see, the more multicultural a multicultural democracy gets, the closer it gets to its collapse. Just as the Soviet system was supposed to be highly efficient, when it actually had its efficiency tested, it fell into a pile of its own contradictions.
The “strengths” of the old USSR were its “organization”, “efficiency”, and “production possibilities.” Just as the Strengths of the New USSA are its “diversity”, “tolerance”, and “freedoms.”
But, remember when its greatest “strengths” were tested, it ended up collapsing in a pile of it own contradictions.
Today’s version of the SDI or “Wallace Democrats” (who are now named “Regan Democrats” by Conservative pundits) is the great unknown. I may see the mass migration of non-whits as today’s SDI. Just as the SDI forced the USSR’s collapse by exposing its greatest myth, the mass migration of non-whites (And all it’s derivatives) will expose this systems’ greatest myth. Historians may look back to find Ted Kennedy as our very own science fiction writer?
But its important to remember, while the SDI may have helped bring it down, its main reason for collapse was its own contradictions. The current system has no shortage of these.
BoardAd is just going ahead and upgrading the system. He probably consulted with others, but he didn’t consult with me, which is exactly the way I like it. That was a LOT of work and he ruined his computer doing it.
But, contrary to the Masturbation Generation, I am not as impressed by his sacrifices as I am by his INITIATIVE.
A manager who does not hire people who are better at things than he is is a FAILURE. But if they are better, how does he JUDGE them? That seems tome to be what good management is about. The top guy succeeds if he RECOGNIZES good work and people who have initiative.
What they do WORKS,
Our whole world view interrelated. BoardAd’s work relates directly back to Wordism. A good Wordist wants Control. I just want it DONE. This is true of technical work like BoardAd’s and it is true of seminar participation.
A person who has it all in His Book has aborted his whole thought process. In Wordism, nothing is allowed to WORK. Everything is justification. That is why Communism was doomed. The market tends to weed out failure. Planning cements it into the system.
Once again, pleas NOTICE the IMPORTANCE of what I told Pain: “I don’t KNOW” what you should come up with, any more than I know what BoardAd should do to the system.
What I DO know what I am LOOKING FOR.
This makes things a lot harder on YOU than any form of Wordism would be. Our whole world view is very confusing in our Wordist society. I am looking for SOMETHING good and I don’t KNOW what it is YET. It would be one hell of a lot easier for you to search Bob’s Holy Writ and repeat what I want I want you to repeat, especially since that has been your entire training in this society.
But in the end, what would you have? Someone who comes up under ANY form of Wordism suffers the same disadvantage in dealing with US that Communism had dealing with market economies. That system produced people who were simply not capable of competing in a REAL economy.
Z describes this beautifully in the article above.
You must go out of here with that key asset: an ability to deal in REALITY, in things that WORK.
The power of a small group of people like THAT is incalculable. In fact, they are the ONLY people who have actual POWER.
