The Singularity is here

The leftist singularity has arrived. Maybe not the political singularity, the bloodbath that Jim predicts for when leftists lose any status-whoring objects to compete around. But the sociological singularity has just arrived.
See Steve Sailer’s insane find of Microaggressions. Power, privilege and daily life. Whatever people say, social science has advanced a lot in the last decades. And leftist indoctrination has also proceed apace. What you get from that are a generation of very sophisticated leftists. They were taught inequality is bad, and should be protested. Well now they have developed a very fine sense for inequality, and they can find it in every small detail of their life. Oh yeah. Power and privilege pervades the world. It’s not about social justice anymore. Any single deviation from inequality at any dimension, on any scale, is to be detected and analyzed.
But how can you live like that? Your focus is 24/7 on how to detect the smallest slight against your equality of status. Which also means that you have to be totally self-conscious, all of the time. Say, this one:
“You can do [x]. It’s not that hard.”
I have an invisible physical disability. I hear this from teachers, friends, and parents when I try to tell them about my ability level
Well if it’s fucking invisible how is anyone supposed to know? Oh, but that level of thinking would require empathy. And you can’t have that if you’re constantly searching for power imbalances. Singularity-level leftism means you don’t have mental resources available for that. Analyzing your and everyone’s status, and how every social interaction assumes some status or another. That must be really tiring.
Can it get worse than that? I don’t think so. This is the endpoint. This people will grow, and once a critical mass of un-empathic status leveler drones is achieved, society will collapse for lack of cooperation. Or they’ll die off of depression from not having their albino-transexual-deaf-mulatto uniqueness recognized. It’s the end.
