Gerontocracy

Posted by Bob on December 22nd, 2007 under History


Dave says, below:

“McCain and Kennedy are very old men to be emblematic of the world circa 2008 and their careers since 1981 could not be more ironic.”

ME:

This just now hit me:

In our age, every big change has been preceded by a gerontocracy. The USSR, just before it died, appointed leaders who were on the respirator weeks after taking “power.”

In China, the new “leaders” died off as fast as they were elected. To get this out of Communism, the Vatican kept electing popes who died as fast as they were elected just before John Paul.

You don’t have to be old to be a gerontocrat. The establishment just gave us a Bush after a Bush. Now it offers us a Clinton to replace a Clinton. I don’t think there is a precedent for this in American history.

They’re running out of SOMETHING.

AGAIN.

Share it now. Like it while you're at it.

    All levels of our society are so riddled with incompetence, it is amazing the whole edifice doesn’t fall flat in a cloud of dust. I have noticed that those in charge seem to spend much of their job time keeping the competent people out just so they aren’t shown up.

    The silver lining is that there are tens of thousands of brilliant, honest people that would leap into action over night when our own Berlin Wall falls.

    Tainter, writing in “The Collapse of Complex Societies,” noted that overly rigid, archaic internal structures were the hallmark of a system that was about to be replaced by something newer, younger, faster and stronger.

    In the example of the Mormon Church, going into Y2K, many people began using a new phrase to describe what is, essentially, an archaic governing system that Brigham Young would have been the first to restructure along the lines of effectiveness, writ large.

    That phrase was, “The Wasatch Gerontocracy.”

    At what for the mossbacks was lightning speed, the Church leadership has moved to replace the ranks of the Gerontocracy with younger, more vigorous men aimed at a more desirable demographic – the future Leadership of the Church.

    A LOT of effort in organizations goes to masking the fact that much of middle management hasn’t earned its paycheck in far too long, being mere carriers of the flame that created the positions they hold. Externally, the organization seems strong – they are still being paid, and drawing good benefits.

    The organization resembles the tree that seems strong, until the lightning bolt reveals the rotted core.

    The Mormon Church Leadership senses this, on some level, and still has too much of the Gerontocracy in place to deal with the Reality the Church faces.

    The same is true in the American automotive industry. Chrysler employees – not just the UAW members – had their boss use the work “bankruptcy” on Friday.

    All of the reorganization games are simply moving around boxes on a organizational chart that resembles nothing so much as an autopsy…

    I suspect this is more true for the current form of American governance than we would dare admit; the clear winner in the polling seems to be “None Of The Above.”

    The person who embodies the Solution will do very well, indeed, but it will be with an America that will be very different from the one we find ourselves living in.

    Incidentally, I suspect a fundamental principle of the societal/organizational reordering will be Race, if only because it will be – MUST be – extraordinarily meritocratic.

    This was true in Russia, it will be true in the Mormon Church, it will be no less true in the American auto industry, such as it is becoming.

    I read that the greatest generation is dying at a rate of 1000 per day now! That, along with the sheer numbers of non-whites in EVERY white country and ONLY white countries tells us that something will happen VERY soon. How could it not?

    I love it when you guys talk positive. It cheers me up!

    Yes Shari!

    The brilliant and virtuous would be eager to spring to life because they have been kept down for so long. Those who know they have special talent are always ready to use it, and the longer you hold them down, the more they want to spring up.

    It’s like holding back a Pit Bull on a heavy chain while a large animal walks by. When the chain breaks…

    I was over at a peak oil doom site going thru it’s forum comments when I came across something that would have been written by Bob about the GG in relation to the police state forming about the easy use of the Taser. What it means to skip thru a bunch of rhetoric is that if what constitutes conservatism would shift a few degrees it would absolutely skewer the jew centric path of death thru wordism. Bob now I understand the hell you endure, but please know that regardless of the immediate future that the white race shall prosper.
