Capitalists and ropes

How does this square with accelerationism? The forces of capitalism and the market feeding themselves into a self-catalytic process by which humans and their talents are consumed to form… Genderqueer Maoism?

A lot of people are completely focused in economics, like Marxists, libertarians or accelerationists. And yes, the economy is very important. Marx was an improvement over the religion-centered theories of history which preceded him. And the short-lived race-centered theories were worse. Yes, the economy is hugely important. It’s one great pole of human society. How people organize to make stuff and exchange it can explain a great deal of what society is and does.

But there’s another one pole. Violence. Or in other words, politics. How people organize to break stuff and kill people. That is also hugely important, and it explains a great deal of what society is and does. And it’s always there. Violence is always there. You may not be interested in war, but Trotsky is, so you better be too.

Politics and the economy are obviously related. You need to make weapons before using them. And the other way around: what you are allowed to make and how to exchange it depends on those guys with guns. Yin-yang, folks.

Politics and Economics are bound together. They cannot live separately, as much as they’d like to. Politics can’t do as it please, if people won’t make stuff for it. The communists realized that the hard way. But economics can’t do as it please either. The guys with guns won’t let them. Capitalism won’t consume everything for its own purposes. It has no purpose. It can only work in the small range that Politics allows it to. Right now, capitalism can consume everything, as long as it’s for the benefit of advancing the holy cause of Marriage Equality, Transexual Toilet Rights *and* Protecting Muslim Feelings.

What’s scary is that capitalism can work with that. And make money. Oh well. Skynet is going to be very queer.

Asian Public PR

The last video by the Chinese state news agency Xinhua wasn’t widely appreciated by my Western audience. The common reaction is that Asians just are awfully bad at propaganda.

Yes, they are pretty bad. And that’s an Asian thing; it’s not a communist thing. Look at this video by the Japanese Foreign Ministry. This also ties with my other recent post on Japanese decline.

WYB? 2

I gotta say I’m impressed. Chinese propaganda in English is improving a lot. The chick is cute, she’s dressing in traditional clothing, her English is ok, but has a clumsy enough accent to sound cute, and the content is both strong and funny. Well done, guys.

Graphics are fairly low-quality, but that’s easy to improve. But making fun of the latest US Navy mishaps is pretty good, given that the odds are the Chinese military has been involved in some way. I can imagine the grin in the Chinese high command. Still, the emphasis on “American lives being lost”, “American taxpayer being wasted” is a bit try-hard. Just focus on Asia being Asia and Americans being incompetent bullies who have no business there, and you might even convince some baizuo over there.

Here’s welcoming some competent soft power here. Soon we will have cute Chinese waifus to complement Putin’s alpha allure to the Western masses.

Bucolic Japan

I’m guessing that Mr. Derbyshire’s Chinese in-laws have been extremely mean to him; else I don’t quite get his hostility towards his children’s motherland. He should be happy that they’ll get to choose to live in the world hegemon no matter what happens during this century. But no, he keeps criticizing the empire.

To his credit, he criticizes the other, as of now foremost empire, the USA. I guess it’s this small-town conservatism thing. This dream of ethnically homogeneous, small countries, tied by very strict but widely shared cultural norms, and ruled through direct citizenship participation. Yes, it’s kinda nice. There’s this bucolic flavor to it; and if we look at revealed preferences, people all over the world pay big bucks to visit those kind of places (Switzerland, northern Italy) every year. To the point, tourists visiting Japan is a booming industry, with over 20 million visitors last year.

But as nice as homogeneous, peaceful towns/countries are; the logic of history doesn’t care. Northern Italy was this collection of small sovereign city states. Then they consolidated into a few states ruled by the biggest cities, Milan, Venice. Then Napoleon came with his steamroller and it all went to hell. The fact that Switzerland still exists has all to do with it being a bunch of (back then) unproductive real estate freezing up in the Alps, and not due to its superior government.

Anyway, to the point, Japan. I know Japan. Very well. There’s no fucking way in this universe or in any of the infinite universes out there that the 21st century is the Japanese century. Yes, Japan is a fairly pleasant place to live. No crime, by our standards. Very clean; awesome infrastructure. Amazing service by workers so polite they put Victorian butlers to shame.

But Japan is dying. Japan was the first country to stop breeding (and refuse to mask it with foreign workers), so right now it has a 25% old-age population. One in four Japanese are over 65 year old geezers. Who get pensions and consume untold amounts of free healthcare. Who pays for that? Well young people; who haven’t seen their salaries raise, even nominally, for decades, mostly due to raising payroll taxes. The money-printing hasn’t produced any inflation, but it has produced a bubble in the stock market and prime real estate.

Young people aren’t stupid, they see the writing in the wall. If Western populations have been losing testosterone due to getting their balls busted by feminism since the 1970s; modern Japanese have lost the will to live, period. 40% of Japanese are virgins by age 30, men and women. You’d think it’s all the lying Western press, fake news. Oh no, I know the place. It’s true, people. National decline is a scary thing. Japan is in steep decline.

Oh, but the don’t have immigrants! Bullshit they don’t have. Try to buy any groceries in central Tokyo and not see a Vietnamese or Bangladeshi kid in a 7/11 uniform. There’s 2 million immigrants. There’s foreigners everywhere. 2 million in total. Yes, of course, compared to what’s going on in the West, that’s nothing. Japan has a rational policy. It doesn’t take “refugees”. It takes workers, on their terms. Pretty harsh terms. Japan pays low salaries and makes people work really, really hard. Plenty of foreigners just won’t take it. Japan is very far away, it’s expensive, the language is crazy hard, there’s little fun to do out there. And the sort of Japanese boss who takes foreign workers (agriculture, low-margin manufacturing and the like) are often nasty, nasty people. The conditions some workers are made to accept would make many Dubai employers blush.

Of course, that’s the only way to run an immigration policy that pays for the accepting country. Japan doesn’t have an immigration industry. There are no foreign foundations paying for the colonization of the country by hostile foreigners. The government doesn’t fund QUANGOs to bring them. It doesn’t give welfare quotas to their cities to advantage foreigners over natives. The Japanese have their country, and want to keep it. Yes, they’ll take any foreigner who is willing to work for them, without making any accommodation. Japan is their country and they like it as it is. Good for them.

But… Japan is not going anywhere. Don’t believe the hype over the recent GDP growth figures. It’s all bullshit. Japan is losing 1 million workers every year. The electronics industry is dead. Sharp was bought by the Chinese, Toshiba is bankrupt. The videogame industry is dying, completely outdone by America’s. Japan tried to start an aeronautic industry, with the much hyped Mitsubishi MRJ, but the plane sucks and Mitsubishi Aircraft is bankrupt. Japan today can only afford to eat meat because Americans like to drive Toyotas and Hondas. Japan’s future is closely tied to America’s. As the USA declines, so will Japan. But the USA has the best real estate in the world. You can fill the USA with Mexicans and Africans and they’ll still have plenty to eat, if only. Japan though, is a bunch of volcanoes on the path of the Asian monsoon. They can barely feed 30 million people by themselves. Their economic boom only happened because they happened to be an American vassal in a strategic zone. But America will soon run out of money to feed their vassals.

What then? The Japanese century? Hah. In all likelihood they’ll be China’s bitch in 2 or 3 decades. And China will not be kind to them. The Chinese empire used to be kind to its vassals, giving them vast amounts of money in exchange for pathetic shows of allegiance. But China doesn’t have an empire now. It has a micro-managed, internet-connected demotic regime, with hundreds of thousands of people engaging in government PR. Japan better practice their kowtows very well if they want the Chinese people to show them clemency.

So again, let us not lose sight of how the modern world works. Hell, how the world has always worked. Good government is nice. But nations don’t live in a vacuum. Foreign policy is as important as internal policy. It doesn’t matter how well governed a nation is, if the international situation isn’t good. Venice was very nice, nicer than France; Napoleon crushed it. Same for all those nice bucolic principalities across Germany. If your neighbor is big he is going to crush you, sooner or later. This is a fundamental principle of history. To that, add globalized economies today. Hardly any country is self-sufficient today, even potentially. Every single developed country today is an American satrapy. How long will the US be able to afford them? What then? Certainly not the Japanese century. Nor the Swiss century. Gentlemen, there is no Patchwork, and there will never be. The logic of Empire always applies.

Have I mentioned there’s a growing community of Japanese converts to Islam? Of course it’s still tiny, but it’s really funny. And given the sexual market in Japan these days (40% incels, remember), there’s plenty of incentives for it to grow.

WYB?

With a gag over her mouth, yeah, why not. And a sock inside her mouth too. Whatever makes her shut up for good. Sheesh. If Civilization is this mechanism to produce humans; man, our machine is broken.

I am increasingly of the opinion that any man who wants to engage leftists in real life should only do it with 4 big, muscular friends, two on each side. Ideally naked, Bronze Age style. I’m completely serious.

Babies watch

Chinese media celebrate the success of the 2 Child Policy: 18.46 million births in 2016. 2 million more than 2015. Hurray. Long live the party and its core leader Xi Jinping. 萬歲萬歲萬萬歲.

Why the Chinese would want even more people escapes me. But given how modern economics (either through this Landian catallactic capitalist logic or whatever) hates demographics vacuums and tends to fill every empty spot with whatever human-like DNA it finds; well I don’t blame them for wanting to take care of that. And who knows; the whole First World is depopulating, maybe there is a grand plan of colonizing the whole world once the Great Famine happens and all those “refugees” die of their own ineptitude.

At any rate, let’s review the Baby production statistics worldwide:

China: 18.46 million Chinese babies (source)

Japan: 0.98 million babies (source)

US: 2 million white babies (source)

EU: 3 million white babies (source)

Greater Russia: 2 million white babies (source)

India: 27 freaking million babies (source)
Maybe some commenters can illustrate the breakdown between Hindu et al.
I’m guessing caste-based dysgenics must be quite serious.

Subsaharan Africa: 37 damn million black babies (source)

When Power wants something

So there’s been another Islamic terrorist attack, this time in Spain. A dozen dead. This time though, funnily, the terrorists didn’t kill themselves. They’re still on the loose. Apparently the main actor is a 17 year old Moroccan. Even if they catch him, as a minor he’ll probably get a slap in the wrist and some community service.

After Charlottesville, people should have noticed that when Power wants something, it gets it. It will take any means necessary, put any resources needed to achieve it. If the Power in the West wanted to get rid of Islamic terrorism, it could do it.

As an example, China wants to get rid of Islamic terrorism. Pretty damn strongly. So what do they do?

Xinjiang Authorities Convert Uyghur Mosques Into Propaganda Centers

 

I just love this picture. The huge banner on the mosque says: Love the Party, Love the Country. On a mosque. In rural Kashgar. Which is 100% Uyghur. Look at it again. “Love the party”. They don’t say that back in China proper. In Beijing you would get laughed at for being so in your face. But the Uyghurs must take it.

This of course is enforced by a huge security apparatus, killing suspects on sight, and a police state that would’ve scared the shit out of Orwell. You haven’t seen Internet control like China’s. Although I hear Germany’s is getting close.

So anyway, it isn’t hard. Xinjiang is 50% Muslim, and increasingly so. But China will take care of it. It can be done. When there’s a will. In Europe there obviously isn’t.

Being a Conservative

This Tweet encapsulates perfectly the cuckservative mindset. Cucks are, by any account, more pleasant people than leftists. Usually smarter, or at least with way more common sense. I’d guess most of us have conservatives in our family. Many I guess have married one.

What makes them contemptible, though? What makes them cucks? Their cowardice. It’s one thing to ignore the truth. To just not notice what’s in front of you. It’s another thing to be an evil liar and just spread falsehoods for your own benefit, as leftists do.

It’s a yet completely different thing to be able to notice the truth, admit most of it, and just stop our brain working just when it starts to get interested. To be just that close, to be on reach of the truth, but then… crimestop engaged. That’s what makes the cuck a cuck.

Don’t be a cuck.

Oh, and incidentally, don’t be alt-right either. Why? They are getting purged utterly from the Internet. So let this be a lesson of functional semantics. The only valuable labels are those that work.

All politics are identity politics

Said Matt Yglesias. Who, while being a disgusting piece of grease, is more candid than most other apparatchiks. Which is useful in understanding what leftists, or a particular set of leftists from a particular ethnic group, are thinking about. See this other recent example:

Mmm why would he say that?
