A Quick Run Around the Web--January 20, 2016

  • The video, above, is entitled "Shotgun or Sidearm? (ca. 1970s) | Pasadena Police Dept." (H/t Recoil Magazine).
  • Don't forget to check out this week's Woodpile Report.
  • "Understanding the Caliphate Curve"--Sultan Knish. The difference between "radical" and "moderate" Islam is not the end goal--establishing a world-wide Caliphate--but how rapidly Muslims should act to bring about the goal. "ISIS is at the extreme end of the scale, not because it tortures, kills and rapes, but because it implemented the Caliphate immediately. The atrocities for which ISIS has become known are typical of a functioning Caliphate. The execution of Muslims who do not submit to the Caliph, the ethnic cleansing and sexual slavery of non-Muslims are not aberrations. They are normal behavior for a Caliphate."
    I won’t pretend to have all the answers, but I know two things that must be the case for those of us who are looking ahead:
      First, you must be independent, resilient, and be ready for anything.
        You must be independent of anything that might hold you down. Don’t get trapped in college or some soul-sucking job and don’t put yourself in debt-slavery. Have a savings cushion and try to be as financially secure as possible. Remember: those who are free are those who have options.
          It goes without saying that you should take care of yourself and keep yourself in shape. But if you want to take it to another level, arm yourself as much as you can while you can. Do not rely on the government and keep as much distance away from Big Brother as humanly possible.
            Second, men must mobilize and form groups in real life.
              It’s not enough to take refuge online and engage in bitching sessions about how screwed up the world is; that’s not going to change anything except make you feel validated about your situation. Instead, it is essential now for men to take things beyond the internet to pave the path for practical actions. It’s time to form real-life groups where men can congregate and support one another.
                The importance of male-bonding is severely overlooked today, where all-male groups are systematically being attacked and injected with female presence. Even if the group doesn’t lead to any political movement, I think it’s important for a logistical platform to be created for future actions. ...
                  On Christmas Day I spent time with four of my male cousins, ranging in age from 15 to 24. While I’m not quite their mentor, they are receptive to lessons I give them. With any man I talk to, I try to identify where he is in life and what his unique situation is to give advice that I think will help him reach his next goal. This year, however, I had trouble giving much in the way of advice or motivation.
                    The reason is because most roads today lead to dead ends, and I know this because I’ve pursued most of them. A man eventually gets spit out not that much farther from where he began.
                    • I slept with dozens of girls around the world, but now I’m tired of it.
                    • I traveled to two dozen countries, but now it’s boring because there’s nothing novel left to experience.
                    • I make enough income to live a minimalist lifestyle indefinitely, but I don’t care for the comfort it gives me.
                    • I’ve achieved a high level of fame and influence, with web sites that collectively served 88 million page views last year, but I’ve become accustomed to it. It’s no big deal.
                      Pursuing external experiences, objects, or sex with beautiful women made me joyous but only for a short period of time, and then I returned back to the same emotional level. Was it all a waste? Was it all for vanity? Whatever the answer, I surely can’t advise my young cousins to pursue hedonism, of banging hoes around the world for no other reason than to bang hoes, if it will fail to give them a lasting form of contentment. Instead, I could advise them to search for deeper meaning in life.
                      • Dedicate yourself to God
                      • Find a woman and have a big family with her
                      • Give back to your community and make people’s lives better

                      Those who rule over us don’t need more Americans or European-derived people to cement their power and wealth within nations they control through government institutions and transnational organizations and corporations. How would it benefit them if a baby boom takes place among those from American conservative states that believe in the first and second amendments? If you were king of the land, and you regularly met with those who helped you rule, would you really want the type of people who are most likely to overthrow you to reproduce up to their biological maximum, or would you want to hurt their reproductive potential while pushing every degenerate cause under the sun in an effort to limit their numbers?

                      I wrote Cultural Collapse Theory a year ago, where I detail the specific mechanism that progressivism destroys a host culture, but I could easily re-title it to Population Collapse Theory without having to make many changes to the text. I must admit that I feel a bit foolish for taking so long to realize the agenda all along is depopulation, especially when the elite have openly shared and discussed their plans. All you need to do when watching their interviews is to replace the buzzwords “population control” and “sustainable development” for “depopulation of Western natives.” This is often done under the guise of curing third-world poverty or making the Earth “more livable” for Western children that will never be born.
                      • Related: "Davos Robot Eclipses Davos Man as Gloom Descends on Elite"--Bloomberg. The elites attending the World Economic Forum express concern over the future of robots, that are expected to displace not only low skill workers, but those in white collar positions as well. However, their concern is over the possibility of social unrest. 
                        ... Bank of America estimates manufacturing and healthcare alone will see $9 trillion in cost savings in the next decade, while productivity could jump by almost a third in many industries.
                          The rub is what happens if the losses from the revolution are sufficient to stifle economic demand for the products churned out by machines. One reason to fear this is that the number of people affected could be higher than once thought. McKinsey & Co. researchers estimate that by 2025 robots or automated software will be able to do the jobs of 140 million knowledge workers.
                            U.S. President Barack Obama, who is dispatching the highest-profile American delegation to Davos since he took office, in this month’s State of the Union address warned that “technology doesn’t just replace jobs on the assembly line, but any job where work can be automated.” That could increase economic frustration that’s already running high in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.


                            1. Re: "The End Goal Of Western Progressivism Is Depopulation"

                              Roosh Valizadeh observes that the agenda of the progressives is "depopulation of Western natives," and observes "the elite have openly shared and discussed their plans." He is correct - I have read those statements myself. The only reason nobody has really paid attention is because their goals seemed so preposterous.

                              In a cynical sort of way, I'm OK with that. Once the Western natives are gone, the rest of the world will collapse with starvation and disease. The rest of the world only survives because of Western technology (agricultural, medical) and generosity (innumerable charitable efforts sending food to populations that cannot feed themselves).

                              Re: "Davos Robot Eclipses Davos Man as Gloom Descends on Elite"

                              The article laments "The rub is what happens if the losses from the revolution are sufficient to stifle economic demand for the products churned out by machines." The solution to reduced demand for products produced by robots is to force people to buy those products. The legal precedent for forcing people to buy things already exists: the first Obamacare SCOTUS case which in effect held that forcing people to buy health insurance was constitutional.

                              1. There is another way to force people to buy products; one that Europe is beginning to play with: a combination of eliminating cash and negative interests rates on banking accounts. No longer able to stuff cash in a mattress, and suffering a penalty for storing money in a bank, the only option would be to spend the money.

                              2. Eliminating cash still leaves too much freedom for the subjects - they can still choose what to buy with their money. Our political leadership are control freaks, and would want to force subjects to only buy "approved" products.

                              3. The government forces us to buy things everyday, but not generally by directives aimed at consumers--which number too many--but through producers and manufacturers. For instance, to force Americans to consume more corn, gasoline producers are required to incorporate ethanol into the gasoline. The government doesn't need to require me to buy so many ears of corn per week because it has now been incorporated into another product.

                                However, the issue here is not consumers refusing to purchase items produced by robots, but that unemployment will soar to such an extent that people (generally speaking) will simply not have the money to consume at current levels. My belief is that if that were to occur, the elites will eventually realize that it is better (from their perspective) to eliminate the surplus population rather than keep it around.
