The REAL Computer Revolution


In the fourteenth century a really wealthy College at Oxford might have twenty books, each of them chained to the wall, and a full-time Librarian to watch over them. If you wanted a book, you had to get permission to copy it by hand.

In that age, someone who had READ books was in a class by himself. A surgeon who had learned his trade on a battle field was a common laborer. He was scum compared to a University Doctor who could quote Galen from having read that Roman book HIMSELF.

In other words, back when the few books were chained to the wall, you wowed ‘em with your KNOWLEDGE.

I spent my first year in college in pre-Med. One day an old WWI vet called up my mother and said, “My boy hurt his leg. Is Bobby fur along enough in his books that he could help out?”

He had no idea that pre-med has nothing to do with medicine. His question was an echo of our history: a book is a book, and Bobby was reading books.

Medicine was dead in its tracks so long as those who could READ the ancient texts were so far above people who actually CURED things.

In fact, this ancient prejudice was very much alive in my youth. This is the age when Mommy Professor took over. Information was still very much restricted to people who had time to search it out, people who did it for a living.

The invention of movable type was a biggy. It made the literate middle class feel itself able to face the guys who had the chained books. But that revolution was not complete until the Google Age.

You can’t wow anybody with your knowledge now. And every year it becomes harder to do so. Revolutions like this take a LONG time to filter down to the point where everybody realizes it.

You are the first people to even HEAR the essence of this revolution in a historical context. But BUGS is also the first place where we have realized that what has generated the dominance of anti-whites is not a Genius Conspiracy, but the simple and natural prejudices of a group that has become a major power and a concentration of wealth known as college professors.

You did not experience first-hand the sheer power of a PhD in the 1960s. The people who were “fur along enough in their books” were still there.

The basis of Mommy Professor’s hold is collapsing with every increase in the speed of computers.
