Information overload as harmful? Argument in favour of authoritarianism. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

You sound like you're onto something Broski.

What most of the peasants don't seem to understand is that Democracy was an experiment. America almost went forward with a monarchy but our proposed Monarch George Washington backed out at the last moment. Democracy is an inherent pessimism that government can't produce effective monarchs.
America's efforts to extend Democracy simply stem from a false interpretation of Monroe Doctrine. Prior to this unfortunate event America was more opportunist (read: practical) about allying with monarchs if the monarchs were astute rulers or were simply friendly to America. The Democracy building business would have seemed absurd at the time, though it's now reached blanket acceptance. Team America, world police?

But if the dam has to be rebuilt, one bank makes money financing the reconstruction and some rich guy's construction company makes money as well.

And that I don't know. I can say that in terms of office politics, one of the best ways to help management see their mistakes is to attempt to very publicly, very enthusiastically attempt to implement the worse of their policies. When the results are inevitably poor, there comes a moment of eye contact between me and them, when I start to pout as if to say, "Why aren't your ideas, working, Master? Is it me?"

But if you try to argue with them instead of showing them the results of their poor decisions, they can blame you for your failures not only personally, but also publicly. Are you aware of a better way of doing things?

Isn't this the way it's supposed to be? Humans enjoy forming tribes and then fighting over land.

The Negro, may God protect and keep them, do not care to expend the effort to police inter-tribal conflict so the result is bush wars. The way to prevent bush wars are to react with public genocide against the most belligerent tribes, in order to keep the rest in line.

Which is time consuming. So where is the problem? This will be the fate of central Africa until their people adapt to firearms and trucks, which are upsetting the previous balance. AIDS existed in Africa for decades but didn't spread around until we gave them trucks.

Agreed. My suggestion is that those of us who are in a position to hire people (e.g., if you work as a manager at a business) don't hire people with university degrees. Kids from blue collar backgrounds are easier to train IMHO anyway even at white collar tasks, and don't have the same set of bad habits that college kids have.

On top of that, why not send your kids to one of the Christian universities? Or send them to college in Poland or someplace.

I think that the best angle of all that I've considered would be to help your kids set up businesses and achieve true independence rather than to train them to be dependent upon the neoliberal system.

...but damn it. Where's the soapbox.

At any rate, I'd like to encourage any of you lads to get on welfare if you can. I physically walked two of my (somewhat impoverished white) friends into a welfare office, and when they saw the quality and the type of people who were collecting welfare, they immediately didn't feel bad at all signing up for welfare.

Certainly if you qualify for welfare you should get it.

The only reason I'm against the vaccine is because 96% of us cannot benefit from it according to the best science that is available for me, and getting it rewards the overreach Karen types.

I will admit that I take a perverse pleasure in thwarting the Karens, and threatening to cough on them. Filthy rabble!

Nice catch. I wanted to write an article about this today but told myself that I wouldn't. What do we know so far?

A friend of mine got really sick almost exactly two years ago. The government eventually fessed up that it had been in the country since December 2019. We know it's a bioweapon because AIDS/Corona hybrids don't occur in nature. I'm not saying China did it, but if they didn't unleash it they certainly failed to close their borders or notify anyone responsibly.

The media is saying that they are making confirmed detections of about 60k cases per day. Every day. Can someone please check that number? Because we also know that most people will be largely asymptomatic, in fact many people will be completely asymptomatic.

I certainly had something in late March 2020 that matched all of the symptoms. It was the flu. Old people had it around here and said it was nothing. Back during the beginning of what they're calling the outbreak, they weren't testing people because they're claiming the hospitals were full.

What percentage of people are getting it, but not getting tested at all? I want to say 90%. But I'll admit that I'm just making that up.

That means we've had...two hundred million cases in the US. Which would be impossible wouldn't it, because children don't get it? If people are still catching it that means people are catching it twice. Which isn't how other viruses work according to my doctor. So the birding is unique in that way.

And we need booster shots. Like every few months or so we need a booster shot.

And these variants come out of nowhere. With other germs if they mutate, the germ becomes less virulent over time. But because 'reasons' the birding has a magic ability to become more dangerous.

And people just believe this. But let's not leave the variant idea alone yet. Because as noted the new deadlier variants come out of nowhere, and instead of spreading in some little pocket of society the people who catch these superbugs are inexplicably jumping on an airplane and running around infecting like five other towns? Heh. Which is not the way that pandemics usually work.

Anyway the reason why I'm ranting about this is because I used to have like three or four rocker friends. And these mohawk wearing, Metalicca venerating, spikey-jacket wearing type anti-establishment dudes are like pro-vaxers. They're all about the vaccine. Dudes whom I've never known to do something healthy in their life are all about proselytizing the vaccine. They have no idea what tools they sound like. College educated people are unable to see that the whole thing is fake.

Americans are that addicted to media. There's 100 things to do in the world, and that's the particular form of inanity that is catching on, screen addiction. We're that unhappy with planning our own day.

This is kind of a bummer. Arizona is a conservative area. They should be banning the woke kids from protesting at all. By counterprotesting we're sinking to their level.

The whole Rittenhouse legal victory is overblown. In fact, it isn't even a victory. We're applauding the judicial system for simply doing their job for once. The kid shouldn't have even been arrested. He probably should have stayed in bed that day.

Sony Music is funny. Their senior management actively hates piracy rather than viewing it as a barnyard variety problem of the copyright industry.

They refuse to protect their prerelease material, when it would be trivial to do so.

Periodically the Japs fire their American management staff and just rehire cheaper people. Those crazy Japs!

Yup.

It's really up to the host to do this. I love hanging out on this website but I don't have the energy to police people. I almost didn't join because I view Wonderwoman's posts as a sign that management is asleep here.

Is Wonderwoman friends with management? Great. OK. Then the site admin should admit that so that we can all just block him (Wonderwoman?) and then life can move on.

But if no one here likes Wonderwoman, then he should get the boot.

If one country is willing to mint and defend a currency, then people will simply use and circulate that currency. To defeat physical currency they'd have to convince every country to go along with it.

Even North Korea, a country that the authorities can't convince not to build a horrible and illogical missile arsenal.

Honestly I blame neoliberals. They think that there is something shiny and special about Democracy. If a pack of idiots elect Trump, they think the education system is broken and not the system of government. If a pack of idiots elect Biden, they think that there is something shiny and special about Biden.
Democracy is mob rule. The fact that sometimes the mob gets it right doesn't change the fact that Democracy is mobocracy. Trying to export our values systems is a form of the very colonialism that neoliberals claim that they are trying to correct.

My take on it was that the Israeli lobby plus the energy lobby plus the law enforcement lobby outmaneuvered the combination of the China lobby plus the education lobby plus the pharma lobby.

People just really refuse to look at it that way.

You don't think that the Chinese influence has grown more substantial than the military's? I'd argue that a free press is antithetical to a free society given how easily the Chinese seem to have taken over. Wouldn't military domination of the press seem justified under those circumstances?
