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.

    A big part of the Jewish learning that I do is basically just the idea that we don’t know much of anything, but that that’s okay, because there’s an infinite force that wants what’s best for us. They loophole it a bit, but it beats everyone brazenly delaying that they know everything.

    It does seem as though there’s a certain hardening of a person’s status framework that occurs with extreme wealth (by which I mean on a societal level). They need a bridge to bring them along, which is a big part of religion. Kek as an emissary to the great nameless infinite one allows those who worship Moloch to ultimately come along.

    Also, I should probably thank you more often, since your analysis has made me a much better person.

    Damn Spandy, I just read “psychopathic status maximizers”. You need to hop on Netflix and watch Season 3 Episode 1 of “Black Mirror.” Then consider filing a copyright infringement suit.

    You’re right that they’re psychopathic status maximisers, but I don’t think this sentence is true. The discourse isn’t gonna change fast enough for it to be ‘soon’, it’ll take more than a Trump term or two. It might even get more entrenched into leftist status signaling, as a reaction to the ‘outrageous’ president.

    Socialists must just admit where they stand: Envy justifies all. ‘What’s mine is mine. What’s yours is ‘ours’ (ie: mine too)’
    Envy is one of the seven deadly sins. And it is still with us today. Socialism justifies it, excuses it, hides it, enables it.

    ‘Racism’ really means ‘I hate White people’. ‘RAcism’ just means you’re anti-White.

    Freedom now from this enforced, coercive, parasitic, anti-white, genocidal diversity. Its a crime, not a ‘policy option’

    The civilized, highly intelligent, moderate, nice, reasonable left, for example Scott Aaronson and Scott Alexander, cut off all communication with the right, perhaps because they could not endure the cognitive dissonance caused by exposure to crime think, and since then they have been getting ever more crazy, ever more evil, and ever more full of hatred, drifting towards the Khmer Rouge autogenocidal position.

    They don’t see that they are being swept ever leftwards, they merely see that those people that they never meet and never talk to are more and more obviously absolute evil and more and more obviously deserving of death.

    They do not notice that they are drifting left. Rather, they see everyone outside their bubble, the people that they never meet and refuse to communicate with, everyone who is drifting left a little bit slower than they are, as drifting evil.
