Bullshit

Just a giant coincidence.

Somebody is sending a message to somebody else. “Somebody” apparently thinks they are ready for a rumble.

“Technology will always let you down. Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is an enemy action.”

    Game is the practice of enhancing individual sexual success. If genius is the favouring of group selection over individual selection, then game is anti-genius. Game will not fix any of society’s problems. Instead we should plant stimoceivers in women to make their desires subject to rational central planning.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      You are wrong on two counts:

      1) Genius may confer group fitness, but that is not what it is by definition.
      2) Game, as we understand it, fixes one particular societal problem: the information asymmetry favoring natural players over brainy nerds.

      You may be correct about stimoceivers because anything, even that kind of lunacy, would be better than the current sort of lunacy.

      • Heaviside says:

        It’s not lunacy; it’s Progress.

        You may not like the idea of electronic behaviour modification, but you are already attempting to subordinate your own brain to rational planning and control through a technical description of personality. So is Koanic. So is everyone who attempts to engage in “self-improvement,” especially the “quantified” kind.’

        Eventually, everyone will be able to reprogram their personalities through a USB port at the base of their skull. FedGov already does it in limited trial programs. Soon, people will complain that their health insurance only partially covers the cost of mind control chips. Why be a loser when you could be a winner? Why be lazy when you could choose to be productive? Why be depressed when you could be happy, all the time? Why be an autist when social facility is just a click away?

        You may work out to increase levels of seratonin and dopamine, but why do that when you can just inject them instead?

        If your objection is that drugs cause you to build up a tolerance, that’s just an engineering problem.

        There is no non-engineering objection you can raise to mind control if you already consider all problems to be engineering ones anyways.

        I am only thinking just the slightest bit further ahead those who endorse smoking kratom because it “improves your confidence bro” or those who endorse Christianity because it “produces functional societies”.

        That’s why I call it Progress.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          I have no moral hangups about electronic behavioral modifications, although I have serious doubts about our effective use of them. Although we use computer language to talk about biohacking, bio systems are much trickier beasts than computers.

          It’s the centralized planning part that I disagree with. And that too, is mostly a pragmatic disagreement. Socialism sounds great but it just plain doesn’t work.

      • Heaviside says:

        >Genius may confer group fitness, but that is not what it is by definition.

        “Fitness” I think it would be too digressive to discuss now, but “group”? Genius must be group-oriented because a historically significant contribution to thought cannot be something mired in the slumber of particularity. Thought is the universal.

        “The waking have one common world, but the sleeping turn aside each into a world of his own.”

        Weininger has a lot to say about this.

        >Game, as we understand it, fixes one particular societal problem: the information asymmetry favoring natural players over brainy nerds.

        But it doesn’t change the reproductive success of people who won’t invest a lot of effort in getting sex.

          I don’t, because unfortunately I have no idea what you’re talking about.

          >But it doesn’t change the reproductive success of people who won’t invest a lot of effort in getting sex.

          It’s just an economic thing. Guys who would have thrown $50,000 at a vagina yesterday now know they can throw 500 hours of effort at it instead, and make rational decisions based on what they really want.

      • Heaviside says:

        >I don’t, because unfortunately I have no idea what you’re talking about.

        Weininger should give you a beachhead.

        >Socialism sounds great but it just plain doesn’t work.

        The important political distinction isn’t between socialism and capitalism, but those who are successful at mercantilism and those who aren’t.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          A quick review of “mercantilism” suggests that it was the downfall of the British empire. It appears to be like slavery that way, except that instead of ending in racial absolution (when the slave class breeds out the aristocratic class) it ends in cultural dissolution, kind of like what we’re seeing right now with American culture. Now that the entire world is America, and everybody’s an American, we have an entire country of people who are nothing but cosmopolitans.

          I wonder whether you may be blind to the moral component of human action. Consider, for instance, the attitudes of Americans toward the abstract concept of Christian “charity”. It is undoubtedly the case that people *feel* they have a moral obligation to the poor, but this vague force gets suppressed and twisted into weird shapes by ideological redirections. It is a lot like the sexual drive that way, and probably even more extensively perverted in America.

      • Heaviside says:

        >I have no moral hangups about electronic behavioral modifications,

        Really?

        >Socialism sounds great but it just plain doesn’t work.

        That’s a cliche. If we say that the Soviet Union failed because “socialism doesn’t work” we have not really answered the question. Economics is never the whole answer to any question of political importance. Most of humanity has always lived in desperate poverty, why didn’t the principle of “feudalism doesn’t work” save them? The Soviet Union collapsed for a number of reasons, some of them directly connected to Marxism and others only indirectly so. It was not the failure of a generic “socialism,” and to say that “socialism just plain doesn’t work” is a very loaded statement, because it assumes the goal of an economic system is to “work.” What does that even mean? It means, though this is usually not explicitly stated, to maximize a certain generic potency, and through rhetorical sleight of hand, this is taken to mean the ability of individuals to gratify arbitrary whims; to “invent happiness.”

        “In the main, the fruits of all economic, social, and political endeavors of the present will benefit not living but future generations. If our work can and will have meaning, it can only attempt to provide for the future, that is, for our successors. However, no economic policy is possible on the basis of optimistic hopes for happiness. Lasciate ogni speranza stands written over the door to the unknown future of human history. It is not a dream of peace and human happiness. The question is not how men in the future will feel, but rather who they will be. That is the question which concerns us when we think beyond the graves of our own generation. And in truth, this question lies at the root of every economic and political work. We do not strive for man’s future well-being; we are eager to breed in them those traits with which we link the feeling that they constitute what is humanly great and noble in our nature. . . In the last analysis, the processes of economic development are struggles for power. Our ultimate yardstick of values is ‘reasons of state,’ and this is also the yardstick for our economic reflections.” — Max Weber

        If you were going to put a label on what I really believe I guess the closest thing would be neo-chartalism + neo-mercantilsm.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          >Really?

          Yup. I don’t think we should be making decisions for other people, and I have serious practical hangups, but I don’t have moral hangups about using electronic behavioral modification on myself, or someone else using it on himself.

          >That’s a cliche.

          So is “bitches be crazy”.

          >If we say that the Soviet Union failed because “socialism doesn’t work” we have not really answered the question.

          Yeah, I’m aware of that. My position is that people will be (at least) as stupid as their environment will conveniently and comfortably allow. So we only acknowledge economic truths when we absolutely have to for achieving some other goal (barring some ideological fixation that makes an economic policy its own reward).

          A pricing system is a necessary but not sufficient condition for a functional economy. But non-centralized pricing is contradictory to socialism. This is why socialism just plain doesn’t work. That will remain true as long as people don’t have shared economic goals via pathological altruism, and even then it might not work depending on other necessary factors.

          >It means, though this is usually not explicitly stated, to maximize a certain generic potency, and through rhetorical sleight of hand, this is taken to mean the ability of individuals to gratify arbitrary whims; to “invent happiness.”

          I expressed myself on this topic here: https://aeolipera.wordpress.com/2015/02/26/who-deals/

          “We capitalists will have our own Gulag, and it will be the most bloodthirsty in all of history, merely because the pricing mechanisms are more efficient. It will also be the slowest, because the money changers have greater patience than the proletariat hordes; we may not even notice the great game of Solitaire being played out until we are caught up in the shuffle ourselves. It is our fate to starve under the care of hospital orderlies who have neither time nor food enough to feed us, oblivious and unable to resist because we are sedated by doctors who review our cases for five seconds every six months. Pain? Vicodin. The morphine will flow long after the water runs dry.”

          What do you mean “we”, white man?

  2. Heaviside says:

    Our politicians have failed us. Our youth are over a trillion dollars in debt because of useless liberal arts degrees. We need real education for real jobs. Our young people need vocational instruction in how to smuggle cocaine across national boarders on behalf of the CIA. They need to be taught how survive interrogation by Latin American internal security forces. They need to learn the timeless conservative values of hard work, hustlin’, and acquired immunity to bamboo slivers inserted under the fingernails.

    Many say that one should go into the trades to secure a living these days, but there is no way that everyone can become a plumber or an electrician unless there is another unsustainable housing boom. Yes, the labour of most Americans is becoming increasing worthless, but why is it worthless? Capital investment in industry is a lever that multiplies what the individual worker can accomplish. We need to stop thinking purely in terms of “human resources”(the resources harnessed by the “service economy” which is in reality no economy at all) and start thinking in terms of worker+industrial infrastructure as a combined system, but that would make it all too clear where America’s problems actually lie and allow people to stop blaming themselves. “Senior citizens need to retrain” is just code for “we are shipping all your jobs overseas but actually that’s YOUR fault stupid old people”.

      This problem arises when we try to matriculate “everyone” into the same four jobs according to whimsical 5-year plans. Then the next year we realize there’s no food, so “everyone” needs to become farmers and truckers and convenience store clerks and restaurant owners. The problem here is central planning combined with weaponized propaganda.

      >Yes, the labour of most Americans is becoming increasing worthless, but why is it worthless? Capital investment in industry is a lever that multiplies what the individual worker can accomplish.

      4-hour workweeks for everybody! Oh wait, that’s right, we’re talking about white people…60-hour workweeks and diversity goodfeelz and white flight and relentless status whoring for everybody! I’ve only got one child and I am sending Johnny to Harvard if I have to cut off his dick to do it.

      Some problems are just from being human.

      >“Senior citizens need to retrain” is just code for “we are shipping all your jobs overseas but actually that’s YOUR fault stupid old people”.

      This is way off in another topic, although broken bones in different parts of the body can be caused by the same osteoporosis.

      Hey, I’m just management. All that nerdy science stuff is your job. I’ve been building up a network of people by organizing malcontents in the red pill subreddit and Sluthate. I figure we’ll go with a Ponzi scheme, what with most of these kids can’t afford a tacnuke…yet.

    Praying for The Happening Vs. Forcibly Implanting Stimoceivers follows from your attitude towards personal property and God as a father figure.

    Communists think that possessions, bodies, brains, emotions and ideas are State property that can be changed in a mechanical fashion. The miniscule point of a individual existence called the Reasoning Spirit is only allowed to exist if it agrees with all the other Reasoning Spirits, i.e. The Party. The Communist conception of God is a cookie-cutter for making new Party members. The Communist conception of God is not compatible God as a Father (Yahweh) to be loved, depended on, obeyed etc.

    Since the only function of the Reasoning Spirit is to change State property according to the needs of The Party, and since everything other than the Reasoning Spirit is State property to be manipulated, Progress in Communism means manipulating increasingly private possessions, like emotions. Hence, Masculinist Communists extract sex and love for The Party using stimoceivers. No need of Yahweh, no personal boundaries and an incorrigible thirst to secure more and more sex for The Party (Progress).

    Yahwehists like Texas Arcane and yourself pray for the Happening, The Grand Minimum, The Apocalypse etc., because it’s the only answer to Homosexual Communism (Liberalism, Judaism, Feminism) that doesn’t involve becoming a hardline reactionary Masculinist Communist. Because you take ownership and responsibility for your mind, ideas, emotions, body and possessions, you hope Yahweh will safeguard them from the oppressors (“God gave them over to a reprobate mind…”). As opposed to Communists, who think their personality flaws (Laziness) do not belong to them, as they are but a tiny point of perfect Reasoning Spirit and the rest is a ‘communal’ problem (The Party needs more Adderall).

    Yahwehists are capable of honouring The Lord by owning their problems and seeking His guidance. Communists don’t have a personal relationship with Yahweh because they don’t have any personal problems.

    This isn’t to mean that God was invented by people despairing over their problems. But that the continual process of glorifying Yahweh by catching up to his superior wisdom and reconciling yourself with His Law can be manifest as nothing other than solving personal problems without tyrannizing others.

      >Praying for The Happening Vs. Forcibly Implanting Stimoceivers follows from your attitude towards personal property and God as a father figure.

      I had to think about it, but that makes sense.

      >Communists think that possessions, bodies, brains, emotions and ideas are State property that can be changed in a mechanical fashion.

      That must be why it’s been such a successful secular religion-substitute. As far as I can tell, it’s just a weaponized ideological system for white people: a fire-and-forget WMD like the original cro magnon.

      >Yahwehists like Texas Arcane and yourself pray for the Happening, The Grand Minimum, The Apocalypse etc., because it’s the only answer to Homosexual Communism (Liberalism, Judaism, Feminism) that doesn’t involve becoming a hardline reactionary Masculinist Communist.

      That is, it’s the only Christian answer. I’m not allowed to give away my little Reasoning Spirit because it’s not mine.

      >Because you take ownership and responsibility for your mind, ideas, emotions, body and possessions, you hope Yahweh will safeguard them from the oppressors (“God gave them over to a reprobate mind…”).

      Hope is right. On the other hand, I *know* he’ll save my soul (if not body, emotions, et al.) because his son died for it, so for whatever reason he seems to value it.

      >Yahwehists are capable of honouring The Lord by owning their problems and seeking His guidance. Communists don’t have a personal relationship with Yahweh because they don’t have any personal problems.

      It seems pretty clear to me that some people aren’t human with a mind like mine, but I sometimes wonder what is the proportion and the variety.

      >This isn’t to mean that God was invented by people despairing over their problems. But that the continual process of glorifying Yahweh by catching up to his superior wisdom and reconciling yourself with His Law can be manifest as nothing other than solving personal problems without tyrannizing others.

      Unnecessarily exclusive here, I think. We can do all sorts of stuff that glorifies God that couldn’t be described as “solving personal problems”. Even though that’s a good thing that we should be doing.
