Don't call it a spade
Schadenfraude and Reflection
You might remember that I called leftists “psychopathic status maximizers”. Look at these people. Look carefully. Do you think they “believe” in some set of values?
No. It’s all crap. We know since David Hume. We humans don’t really know anything. You can’t. You only get to be quite certain after a lot of trial and error about a very narrow area that you are good at. Everything else is signaling. And signaling is done to gain social status. Everything is crap that people say to get at you, to gain some advantage and fuck over others.
Moldbug said it well too: journalists love power. Journalists in Elizabethan England didn’t care about human rights, they cared about the Great Virgin Queen. Who was widely hated, by the way. But you’d never know because those psychopathic status maximizers just did what they had to. And all these upset leftists who are uploading their narcissist signaling to Youtube will come around if the state religion ever changes. If Trump stays in power; they will adapt. And soon enough you’d be seeing the very same people, often the same individuals saying the complete opposite things, but in the same tone of voice and with the same insufferable attitude.
