Every time I go to General Comments V I want to cheer. For me it is a dream come true.
It is the opposite of the parts of SF we are all so tired of.
On SF one gets the impression that almost nobody has ever been engaged in the toe-to-toe struggle we MUST learn to fight.
When you read those writing in Comments V you can smell the smoke of battle on them. Here are people whose comments have been taken down from site after site. No one needs explain to them how effective our message is, or theorize about how some approach MIGHT be received.
If it’s an approach, they’ve just TRIED it and come back with a REPORT.
As I say, for me this is a dream come true. PLEASE keep it up, gang!
It is a wonderful novelty for me to see others come back from the actual battle to discuss it with their comrades.
Let me repeat that my whole experience was finding ways to bring the enemy down, having others see me do it, and then having those who should have been my comrades immediately go back to talking about how bad things are and what tomes people should read.
I want you to realize how PERSONAL this is with me. For decades, people actually enjoyed me tearing anti-whites to piece and glorying in how fast I did it. But when your race is on the line and, year after year, people just say how great you are but never even THINK about using the tactics you have developed, it becomes a nightmare.
It is like dealing with Pod People. In fact, that is the perfect picture of it. Decade after decade I watched my race being destroyed and all those on my side just wanted to write another piece about how bad things were.
Dealing with a very real case of Pod People is horrible. It is a nightmare in which you are completely alone. And when I say that, after all those nightmare years, Comments V is a dream come true, I am not exaggerating in the slightest.
If you truly empathize with what I am saying here, what I have been through, you will realize that I have this feeling of fear that, like a good dream, it will simply go away, that GCV will morph back into the “Things are awful” theorizing I at first found so unbelievable but long since accepted as the hideous reality.
If I sound a bit nuts, Lord knows that by now I have a RIGHT to.
For me, Lord Nelson is a hero larger than his namesake.
Precisely because he really doesn’t give a damn whether he is anybody’s hero or not. He understands the fight itself and he is not interested in anybody being impressed by his pontifications.
But God, does he every understand how this war is to be waged!
And he WAGES it!
If Bob’s praise means anything to you, please understand how MUCH I encourage those in GCV.
In this case it is really true that in the future, so many will have ever owed so much to so few.
Keep the dream alive!
At the time of the Boston Tea Party in 1773, there was one word that was always used to stop American protests in their tracks.
That word was “independence.”
The minute anybody started getting rambunctious about Britain’s right to tax America, a chorus went up about how they were really being disloyal. Patrick Henry was forced to sit down by cries of “Treason!” when he defied the word.
The simple fact was that the colonies could not complain about the power of Britain over America until they faced the fact that the whole idea of their being loyal to London was discussed.
It was common sense.
So Thomas Pain wrote a Mantra book called “Common Sense.” It sold a quarter million copies to a white population of three million. It declared that the bugaboo word “independence” was, in fact the very thing the whole fight was about.
And that is the problem now. The Tea Party is always silly because the first thing that is thrown at them is the bugaboo word “racism.”
You know, I know, and Sarah Palin knows, and The National Democratic Party not only knows, but puts its money where its mouth is, that the Tea Party is really a last desperate gasp of a reaction against minority rule.
The question WAS independence. The problem IS race.
That’s common sense.
No one would deny more monomaniacally the word “independence” in 1773 than those who became known as our Founding Fathers. They screamed against that word as loudly as Sarah Palin does today.
In 1773 when the lynching party formed against anyone who was suspected of “independence” our Founding Fathers led the mob and provided the noose, just as respectable conservatives do today.
Five years later they were killing people who denied independence.
In all the blood and thunder and pretensions, Thomas Paine is barely noticed. But his importance dwarfs that of Washington.
It was common sense that turned the tide then and common sense that will do it now.
Most of what we need to think about is stuff at is so obvious that it isn’t noticed.
In the 1950s conservatives could have ruled America, but they sold out all principle for two words:
Republican and Democrat.
The conservative majority was forgotten at presidential nominations because they had thrown away their vote. The Solid South would vote for a Communist if he had the Democratic label and conservatives outside the South would vote for a NAMBLA candidate if he had a Republican label.
Only on The House Un-American Activities Committee did you see how America COULD have been governed. Party made no real difference. HUAC was run by Dixiecrats and Ashbrook conservatives.
But the rest of the government was run to appeal to those who actually VOTED, the big states who had no loyalty to either party.
I said this was criminal then and I say it was criminal now.
A ticket of Taft and Byrd could have ruled this country and everybody knew it. But all those glorious old Heroic Conservatives wouldn’t support it.
Northern conservatives agreed with Senator Byrd of Virginia on everything, with Tom Dewey on almost nothing. But when the salvation of their people came up against the word Republican, it was screw everything.
Exactly the same was true of conservative Democrats. The only people who thought only of policy were the liberals.
All the professional commentators said this showed “The vote is in the middle of the road.”
But then as today, the people who were really ELECTED to office were NOT middle of the road. The House and Senate, then as now, were solidly left or solidly right, with a very few ELECTED who were in between.
What is and was called “the middle” was a result of the fact that conservative voters would gladly sell their mothers into prostitution for the party label.
What stopped civil rights legislation for so long was that Southern senators filibustered and Northern Republicans would not vote for closure. The media screamed about this, but my brother put it into plain English: “The Eastern media is complaining because the National Will is being blocked by senators from the South, the West and the Middle West.”
In other words, everywhere outside the East, the party labels were allowed to rule over all else. Due to conservative Wordism, the East WAS the National Will.
We lost America to two words.
There are lessons to learn by debating a time or two with people who are just plain in the way.
I can talk to you about this because you have been out there fighting the battle instead of just theorizing.
One of our people learned a great deal debating with a Fair Bianca in the OV section. She has a bug up her pantyhose about the word “genocide.” She says it has to be “done by force.“ One of our folks has thoroughly covered that, citing the actual genocide treaty.
I was asked whether the debate should be continued with Fair Bianca. AND I was asked a separate question, should one spend time with this sort of thing at all.
My point is that these are two separate questions. Such a debate is always worth while for the combat experience. The first question, whether one should have participated in it, is answered YES.
Once you have debated someone who is stuck to a nonsense position, you have been forced to think out in detail what the real situation is and you are not caught off-guard the next time this comes up.
Like so many lessons, this one is complicated by the answer being, “Do it, debate with them, for a time or two. That is the important use we can make of such as Fair Bianca. “
The second lesson is, “Then have done with it.”
These are two separate lessons. As you debate you will see more deeply into what WE are saying. And you will not be caught out the next time such a thing comes up.
Only THEN, when you realize you can repeat their obsession in your sleep, do you decide it is time to abandon this useful experience.
You can then have a line for such instances which says, “Doing away with a race, even the WHITE race, by any means, propaganda or force, is genocide. Please note what is said about the same policy being applied to blacks in the Mantra:”
Then for God’s sake, put in the MANTRA with the part about the blacks in caps.
Another version of the same thing is those who say the white race is guilty so it deserves genocide. I address that as GC5 commenters have learned to address it:
“You are JUSTIFYING genocide.”
Then I copy and paste in the Mantra.
No one has come back at me yet, so this seems to be effective.
I don’t add things like “of the white race” or any of the other things my fury demands. Those four words are just enough to be unarguable, IN MY EXPERIENCE.
Remember, in most cases you’re talking to the LISTENERS, not trying to convert the anti-white.
It is very hard to quit when you’re ahead, but it is also the key to what we are doing.
I was talking to some people I have business with, and the lady I was talking to had four children. I said, “I didn’t know white people were allowed to have that many children.”
She had read BUGS and gave me a lecture on the UN study that said that blondes were dying out and she would prove them wrong. It was a three way conversation and the other party agreed.
I wish I could tell you what the business was but I can’t. The point is that everybody agreed with Mantra thinking. In fact, she lectured ME on it.
It could be too easy for us to imagine. That is because we think in terms of Total Revolution, torchlight parades and the like.
But please realize something. We pro-whites in BUGS are the only people who do not need any apocalyptic language.
We just want our race to survive.
We couldn’t care less if our race survives in a bang or a whisper.
Every day biological technology advances. Already it is reported that the DNA of the lowest form of life has been replicated.
It may be that all that is required for our race to survive is that there be people who declare openly that they WANT our race to survive.
Who else but Mantra thinkers advocate that our race survive, not as part of a World View, but simply because it should?
All the other pro-whites, bless their souls, demand a Revolution or have a complete theory of Conspiracies or Human Existence.
Oddly enough, when the choice is to be made, the only people who can simply make the case quietly for white children are right here.
The biological revolution is not just coming, it is here.
Ask yourself, who is there who can simply make the case that our race should survive, that white people should simply choose their own?
It sounds obvious. But in the real world all the forces are against anything but a Multiculture race. Anybody who says otherwise is anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
Think about it. There is simply no one else who does not need a World Conspiracy or a World Theory to say white children should be born.
God bless those who are willing to fight for white survival. But what if it is not a matter of a fight but simply an unapologetic demand?
Whether it is a bang or a whisper, the point is white survival.
I had a conversation with one of my kin that made an impression on me. I had made the point to him many, many times that for all the talk about how civilizations rise and fall, the fact is that no civilization falls unless it becomes brown-skinned.
A lot of people will say that they are pro-white but some of their families disagree. That is not true in MY family. All of them get the Mantra.
But when I brought this up he said, “I have been thinking about WHY whites become brown.” He knows a lot about India, and he pointed out that White India, from which China got its rice and we got our numbers, began to become non-white when it had the coloreds the Aryans had conquered under absolute control.
They stopped fighting as allies against the coloreds they had conquered and began to consider their only real enemies to be each other.
I have played around that realization a lot but no one had put in out as a naked truth the way he did.
It made me think of the way we have destroyed ourselves.
All of us ask ourselves how in God’s name Europeans massacred each other by the millions in the trenches of World War I when they together controlled the world. The simple fact is that by 1914 whites had such complete rule of the colored world that they felt that their only competitors were other Europeans.
Today, when coloreds are conquering Europe, this looks as insane as it was. But back then, if you told a Brit that he had any real enemy but “the Hun,” that his colonials would rule his descendants, he would have had you committed.
White India had been white since the Aryan takeover a thousand years before. But Buddha and the like condemned the caste system. Asoka spread Buddhism all the way to Iraq and beyond.
The top two castes switched place. Tshatriya, the warrior class, ceased to be the top group. The Brahma, the priestly class, took their place. My guess, from THINKING about what my young kin said, was that White India forgot the conquest and began to war with each other.
Buddha condemned the caste, which in Sanskrit is the “color,” system.
Flash forward to today. Our ancestors fought the Indians and the English and the French in a common cause: They wanted America for 1) whites and 2) AMERICAN whites. New England brought in black slaves and sold them to Southerners.
Then we became absolutely dominant and we began to fight each other.
Now we insist that whatever the issue is, it is NOT racial.
There are Big Spenders and their headline opposition is the Tea Party. They compete with each other in insisting that the third world and immigration and assimilation is NOT the problem
They all take it for granted that the problem is what OTHER white people think.
They, like White India, take white supremacy as a given. It is impossible for them to realize that what they take for granted is in fact white supremacy.
They think what the Founding Fathers fought for was a philosophy.
THINK is a misnomer.
The Tea Party is the last headline rebellion that insists that none of our real problems are racial.
The Tea Party is the last gasp of the assumption of white supremacy.
If you are in Intelligence, you have to simply forget privacy. You don’t have any. You are interrogating people and prying into everything, so there are simply no questions about yourself that you have any right to hold back.
I keep telling you about interrogation techniques. The whole basis of interrogation is that you don’t tell the person what you are after or why you ask a particular question.
Which means that you have no right to ask why someone you are responsible to wants to have a piece of information about YOU. If you are going to have a license to question people without saying why, you cannot turn around and ask why some random bit of information is asked of you.
It’s bit like the IRS. Every IRS agent’s tax return is ruthlessly audited every year.
It sounds ironic that when I was put on disability, a lot of the data used to prove my disability came from the files about why I was called in for intelligence work in the first place. My qualification became my disqualifications.
This seeming contradiction is in fact just the opposite.
One of the major reasons they gritted their teeth and called on me was because I had a conscience. You are aware that the real traitors who do the damage are psychopaths.
One of the reasons for my disability, a minor one but a good example of what I am talking about here, was called “excessive offensive concerns.” In plain language this means that I am too worried about hurting others.
A psychopath is one who has no concern at all about hurting others.
But if you spend years under pressure a virtue can become an liability, an obsession. If you are the opposite of a psychopath, you can get to the point where you are obsessed with the idea that you have hurt others.
Excessive offensive concern is a bit like low blood pressure. My doctor brother was asked what he would say to someone with low blood pressure. His ironic humor made him respond, “Well, these days the first thing I would think of saying is ‘Congratulations.’”
If you have no sense of humor or proportion, you can be offended by this. But obviously what he meant was that today high blood pressure is the cause of so much death and so many strokes that low blood pressure is close to a virtue.
In an age where psychopaths rule, they will naturally look for someone who has the opposite of psychopathy, which is called “excessive offensive concerns.”
But if a person has consistently low blood pressure he may die if it becomes too low. In his case the opposite of high blood pressure, which is what nine in ten patients actually die of, must be watched for.
In my case, as I became exhausted and pressured, the opposite of psychopathy, which was a reason they needed me, went too far. If you THINK about it, this is logical. Pressure and exhaustion will cause person with low blood pressure to become more so, and a person is who is the opposite of a psychopath will not become disqualified because his psychopath tendencies increase, but because the symptoms of being the opposite of a psychopath will increase to an unhealthy level.
It is perfectly logical that an excess of the things that qualified me would be the result of too many years and too much pressure.
To put it in less sophisticated terminology, everybody goes nuts in his own way.
Anti-whites are psychopaths or sociopaths. Once I introduced this topic, commenters started talking about how having no empathy and no feeling for of loyalty were characteristics of our society.
Once I talked about it, you got a real grasp of what you had felt was wrong:
Regarding hatred of your own people as a virtue is SICK.
A person with low blood pressure understands the importance of blood pressure. I know a lot about psychopaths because what was my problem came from its opposite.
The beginning of wisdom is irony.
The whole question of when life begins revolves around baptism. Originally the Church accepted I think Aristotle’s idea that a fetus was a plant, and that during pregnancy it evolved through each level of being until the end, when it was human.
Yes, fetal evolution!
I even remember a horror movie in the 50s that talked about this theory and the story line was about a duke who had been born a frog.
Later the Church adopted a Middle Ages philosopher’s idea that the embryo is as human as the baby.
This was critical, because the official dogma of the Catholic Church was then and is now that an unbaptized baby carries Original Sin to Judgment. The doctrine of Limbo was created to blunt the brutality of this, but few people know that official Church doctrine says that after the Day of Judgment there are only two destinations for the human soul, Heaven and Hell.
And, with apologies to Dante, Hell is not fair.
In the Middle Ages there was a device that looked like a grease can, with a long snout, which was used to baptize babies who were dying in the womb. It is still true that the Church considers babies who die in the womb to be damned, but it is beneath the dignity of a modern priest to do that and the law wouldn’t let them if they wanted to.
In Mexico many babies die unbaptized because they can’t pay the fee to the priest. They think their babies are damned. Actually, a parent or anybody else, male or female, Catholic or atheist, can baptize a child.
According to Church doctrine, every aborted fetus goes to Hell eventually.
In Calvinist doctrine the chosen few live a life that shows they are among the Chosen. All babies, regardless of baptism, go to Hell.
Today’s Pro-Life Movement takes none of this into account. For all its shrieks about religion, it is entirely secular. Catholic pro-Life forces, and they are by no means the entire movement, never mention baptism, because it would be beneath their dignity to admit they believe in things Mommy Professor would laugh at.
In Screwtape, CS Lewis did say the Devil was a liar. But the examples Screwtape gave, of a man who avoided evil company because he liked to eat rotting fish and went to Heaven, sound like the purely serendipitous way Judgment is decided.
There is simply no way for a person to say that he believes in Heaven and Hell and impress his suburban neighbor that he is logical, reasonable and beyond all respectable.
If you believe, there is no place for Pride, which is now called Respectability. It is a deadly sin, to the baby and to you, if you believe in the doctrine of the Church.
I do not believe the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Satan cannot build with something he does not have. But he has plenty of Pride.
When you go to the doctor, you probably pay more to feed lawyers than you do to feed MDs. And on its way to the lawyers there is huge amount of money lost in between.
No society on earth, past or present, has ever before had one in hundred of its entire population, men women and babes in arms, as lawyers. For every doctor there are several lawyers.
A lawyer can only get paid as part of a process. He must have secretaries, legal aides, the entire court system, policemen with their guns on, sitting and making out paperwork for the legal system for as much time as they are outside protecting the pubic and controlling the doughnut population.
Each lawyer makes work for other lawyers.
The same people who bitch all the time about how “justice is for sale” are always for Medicare but never mention the possibility of Judicare. And no one will ever mention it TO them if that person wants to make a living in public debate.
This idea has an interesting twist, since with Judicare the government would be paying for the problems only the government creates. There is no law without legislation, and legislation is entirely the product of the State.
No one can claim that there would be no disease without doctors. Yet the same people who insist that the State should provide all medical care never even breathe the possibility that the State, which IS responsible for all law, should make lawyers part of the civil service as they demand that doctors be.
This duality will never be mentioned by respectable conservatives. But there can certainly be no equal justice as long as one person is allowed to pay more for his lawyers than the other side.
The good thing about this from the point of view of professional liberals and professional conservatives is that it hits the right economic group. The rich are OK, which makes it OK in respectable conservative eyes, because they can afford legal help without great strain. Liberals are happy that the underclass and especially minorities can get free legal care.
I spent years trying to get conservatives to go after our real middle class, people who work for a living, and I can testify that no one can overstate how respectable conservatives, especially those from working families, are desperate to distance themselves from the “bourgeoisie” group.
Liberals HATE the bourgeoisie. Mommy Professor’s arch villain is a working man who DARES watch TV and have six pack when he comes home from work.
“If you cannot AFFORD a lawyer…”
Those are the most anti-middle class words in the English language. If you have worked and earned a house and some property, you must spend every penny of it before you can get aid from the State dealing with problems the State put in place.
a) They are asking us why we have such a political split in America. They talk about consensus, getting along like one people.
b) Then they tell us that we should not be one people, they say that the whole aim of America is that we not be one people.
a) They tell us that a healthy country is multicultural.
b) Then they tell us that all the people must have the same outlook, Political Correctness.
a) They tell us that there should be a great variety of races in America.
b) Then they tell us the goal is for all the races in white countries to mix into one.
Every respectable conservative makes his living by not mentioning any above in connection with its b.
Freedom of speech today means that you should be able to say anything you OUGHT to say.
Or, to put that more accurately, you should be allowed to say anything Mommy Professor decides you OUGHT to say.
It cripples your opponent when you add these few words: “what you consider to be…”
No respectable conservative ever does. That’s how he makes his living. He NEVER mentions that someone who denounces “racism” is denouncing WHAT HE JUDGES as racism.
Those three words are the difference between freedom and slavery. All any dictator needs is to be able to say that he outlaws things that are useless, heretical, pornographic, racist, or otherwise detrimental to the common good.
Most people would have no problem with some restrictions on freedom. The entire difference between freedom and slavery is those five words:
WHAT I CONSIDER TO BE
Free speech is the only salvation for free speech.
Use it or lose it.
Respectable conservatives are paid to lose it.
Military history has a lot of detail about why someone failed or won a battle. But the most important and consistent theme in battle history is dismissed as “The Thirteen Division wasn’t there.”
If you don’t talk about WHY it wasn’t there, you are ignoring one of the most important phenomena in the whole panorama of history.
And, not surprisingly, the officers who are raised on this kind of history end up saying that they lost a battle because “They didn’t show up.”
In the Greatest Generation, many soldiers didn’t fire a single shot in a battle. Many of the Heroes of D-Day lost their weapons and didn’t even realize it.
One fairly realistic estimate was that a fifth of the troops did eighty percent of the fighting.
Their training, after all, had been tough, but it had been tough to show how Macho the sergeant was. Then a group of men who had been trained to be meek poured out onto Omaha Beach.
But no military textbook is going to even MENTION the guys who lost their rifles and didn’t notice, much less the ones who simply didn’t join in the shooting others were doing in the general direction of the enemy.
And when you beat a man down until he is motivated only by his fear of the sergeant, what do you expect him to do when the sergeant, like most bullies, is busy protecting his own ass and the guy on the other side won’t just make him do laps, but will KILL him?
Just as he did what the sergeant said, he will do what the guy with a gun and a will to kill him wants him to do. That is human nature. That is why our modern US Army is better trained than any American soldiers were in the first half of the last century, when training meant macho sergeants, not macho soldiers.
We learn little from major disasters because no one is interested in the causes. They are interested in blame, either placing it or avoiding it. The verdict will always be, “human error,” but precious little attention is paid to the exact nature of that “human error.”
Either the pro-white cause is hopeless or its leaders have failed. This is one reason AIL is so popular with our present leaders: It’s not their fault.
The catch in that is that, if things are hopeless, what is the point of the movement and of its leaders?
Lord Nelson explained how I almost emptied to the Opposing Views section of SF by using the Mantra. To my amazement, he said he had not been “criticizing” me! No way, Jose! That was giant compliment, and could be nothing else.
But a lot of other people watched the anti-watched left flat when the Mantra wheel went over them, but no leader would ever mention it.
I have done that sort of thing for decades and no leadership has ever noted that my approach worked. I finally figured out one of the simplest and most basic rules of human behavior, so simple that you never THINK about it.
No leaders of ANYTHING like any change of direction. This is not an attack on our leadership because you will NEVER elect a leadership of ANYTHING that does not automatically react negatively to a change in direction.
The lesson is worth bringing up, but it must also be fitted into reality. As long as human beings are our leadership, they will always end up opposing, or in most cases totally ignoring, a new direction
With over half a century of active battle behind me, I have a lot of practical cynicism.
Please note that I said PRACTICAL cynicism. There is also that very childish phenomenon I call Macho Cynicism.
Macho Cynicism is like the Mommy Professor Syndrome. The MPS is where a real rube or suburban kid, who is more a rube than any rube, comes to college with traditional values and finds a True Intellectual in the form of a professor who is The Only True Light and the True Source of Sophistication.
We used to say, “All freshmen are socialists and atheists,” not because all of them were, but because this Mommy Professor Hypnosis is so childish and laughable.
When a person keeps the Mommy Professor Syndrome on into his adult life, it is REALLY pathetic.
So Macho Cynicism is when someone decides that since all the tough old guys keep being negative about their sillier hopes. If they don’t THINK about it, they get the idea that Cynicism is a sign that one is tough and Realistic.
No one will succeed with the Mantra if he is a Macho Cynic.
But there are elements of PRACTICAL cynicism in what I have learned. One of them is that it always makes me VERY uneasy when someone says “Someone should…” or “We ought to…”
Stormfront is FULL of “Someone should” and “We ought to…”
Certainly there is nothing wrong with suggestions. But I have learned that a suggestion is a bad diversion if it is not succeeded by some word of what the writer has DONE. Most of our suggestions in BUGS are accompanied by a bit about that the suggester HAS done.
Most of the wisdom we get in GC5 comes straight out of battle experience.
You will notice a pattern in SF that I noticed long before. A person comes to Stormfront demanding that “we” Do something and expecting an imminent Revolution. Then they settle down into Macho Cynicism, The All Is Lost mode.
Every one of those ALL Is Lost types thinks he is just being mature, hard- nosed and, above all, Practical.
And the AIL crowd also has the barely concealed attitude that anyone who disagrees with them is being childish and is not Macho.
AIL is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Nobody would advise a propaganda unit in the middle of a war to declare that anybody who thinks they have a chance is an effeminate wimp. But that is what Macho Cynicism does, in fact, demand.
My form of “cynicism” is to discourage anybody from holding back on action until “we” organize to do something or until “they” do something.
In football, if the huddle to plan the next play lasts so long it delays the game, the team is penalized. In war, if you spend all your time planning, you get penalized Big Time. Many a battle has been lost while a crucial division hesitated or just didn’t show up.
BUGS is not only a refuge of sanity on race.
For every word we exchange on the practical causes and sources of warped thinking in our society, there are literally a million words out there about the Pure Evil and the Evil Geniuses who put society in wrong directions.
This is true in our movement but it is even more massive out of it. The left is one gigantic Conspiracy Theory about how the Military and the Rich and the Religious Fanatics conspire to dominate the minds of people and keep the intellectuals, Mommy Professors, from guiding things as they should go.
“Christians” and Social Progressives are united in their battle against Mad Scientists. Mad Scientists want to use embryos that should properly be thrown away to find out how to make the crippled walk and the blind see. The Prince of Wales is waging a battle to prevent nanotechnology from being developed being it could be put to bad uses.
The environmentalist left is desperately fighting to end the advance of Fusion energy, just as they ended the advance of nuclear power.
I observe this, but I don’t see a Giant Conspiracy. The simple fact is that the Prince of Wales can OPPOSE science without knowing any of it. For every real technical degree given out there are a score of social science or education or religious “experts” credentialed.
There are a few hundred thousand doctors and three million lawyers. So every scientific advance, or for that matter every medical procedure, will have twenty professionals trying to stop or criticizing it for every person who is DOING it.
More important, there is only one tiny publication which will state this fact.
The book and movie How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying would not have been funny if everybody didn’t realize that a lot of going up the corporate ladder has nothing to do with ability. The following line is getting awfully familiar to you:
People KNOW that, but they don’t THINK about it.
If you watch Back From the Future, you will note that the man expected to own a business in the 1980s was Japanese. Japan had rocketed from Oriental poverty to a per capita income on a par with the US since its destruction in WWII.
Then How to Succeed caught up with Japan. To succeed in the New Japan you had to fit in. As a result a very cozy relationship developed in which loans and financial dealings got totally out of hand.
It got to the point where the only thing that would break the silence was economic catastrophe. The catastrophe hit. Japan suddenly ceased to be the Way of the Future. People stopped marveling at the Japanese corporate culture.
To put it simply, Japan had been counting on the phenomenal growth it had had for a generation to allow it time and elasticity shake out any inconveniences. In the midst of rapid change there are inevitable problems. Like the pollution in Tokyo, things that would have been serious elsewhere were taken for granted.
But Japan should have read BUGS. When they reached what, in terms of money exchange, was an American per capita income, their ability to copy from the Aryans had been reached.
In the 1980s Japan had been expected to go right into orbit, continuing its phenomenal growth which was actually a copy of the West.
Sometimes it is enormously costly when people can’t tell each other the truth.
There is a great similarity to what happened to Japan in the 1980s and what is occurring in the American corporate — and mortgage — culture right now. Those who were paid enormous salaries for suiting up, showing up and doing things right in terms of the corporate culture turn out to be almost unbelievably poor when it comes to actual paperwork.
The more one rises by fitting in, the more requirements develop about what You Should Say and What You Shouldn’t Say, Who You Know Not What You Know, the less able your executives are going to be.
The more veterans’ preferences you have, the more ethnic quotas you have, the less basic competence matters.
This eventually, here as in Japan and everywhere else, can only be exposed by a catastrophe no one can keep under cover.
And that is what we are facing today.
Irony is funny because it is true. It is also cruel because it is true. But as Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, a name only BBG will probably recognize, once said, “Man is the only animal who laughs. Man is also the only animal who knows he will die.”
One of the strains of writing for BUGS is that I will start on one subject, then realize that where I am going is somewhere else. A change of direction means a complete rethought and a complete rewrite. This actually involves several rewrites.
In other words, most of the WORK here comes from a change of direction. When I put this in plain English to myself the simple answer as to why BUGS is harder than writing for money becomes a piece of irony:
“When I wrote for money I wasn’t GOING anywhere.”
When I wrote for money the route was laid out. I was writing in terms a certain public would understand and in the language of the person who had hired me. In short, I already knew what to say, and I knew exactly what the style would be.
I got paid because, as with the Populist Forum, all I wanted to do was truly represent the person I was writing for and put it in terms the people I as writing to would understand.
Another irony is that it was easy because what people would understand was so limited. So my books, even the ones in my own name, were dedicated to getting across just enough new ideas, which were very old ideas to me, so my particular public would understand and to give examples they would recognize.
To be perfectly frank, when you were limited to those subjects there was little danger of me.
BUGS readers are an entirely different matter. I can talk about Wordism and a dozen other concepts that would require full explanation to others. I do not have to devote my writing to explaining these basics.
I can GO somewhere. I can be writing here and suddenly remember that I don’t have to go through the old explanations and deal with the “DUHH!!” bit.
Within the old bounds, it was easy for me to do what seemed near superhuman to some.
When the heat was on and a congressman needed a speech fast, he would bypass his own staff and call me on the Committee. I had explained the same things, with a little twist to spice up the speech so many times I could do it on an entirely new subject at, literally, record speed.
In fact, I could do that on entirely new subjects. It was a technique.
I wasn’t GOING anywhere. The tracks were easy to see. If I got off the track nobody would understand what I was talking about.
But talking about something that is new to ME is a whole different ball game. I am not just explaining something I have had years to think over. But when I connect different concepts together for the first time here and come to conclusions I hadn’t considered before, it’s a different thing altogether.
I do more mental WORK for you than I did for anybody who paid me.
It is new kind of freedom. And like any new kind of freedom it has elements of strain.
