Shots of Wisdom, Part 5

A cry in the wilderness. The era of degeneracy is over — Trump showed us that we don’t have to live like this. I took this photo at a New York City hipster bar late last summer. And the words of the prophets are written on bathroom walls:

trmpb6

“Être.” Whites are the Apollonian race that launches rockets into space, explores the depths of the oceans, creates the most magnificent art, and in general, consistently advances humanity out of its chthonic origins, as a reader once put it. Yes, we are a race of dreamers who work to realize our loftiest visions. I wonder, though, if in valorizing progress we blunder into the place that Suburban_elk warns us about: are we defined by our suburbs, malls, by our traffic fumes? Are space travel and engineering triumphs as such only different in degree from securing comfortable shopping for princess? The answer to who are we — and why we must continue to be — is elusive beyond the tautological 14 Words. Do we exist to create and produce things and is defiance of nature the meaning of life? Not if you put it that way, is the smart answer.

There is a scene in Kieślowski’s “Red,” in which Irene Jacob’s character tells her confidante, a cynical retired judge, that her younger brother is a heroin addict and she wants to help. His advice to her: Être. Just be. She’s confused by his answer, so he repeats: être.

This conversation is not over.

Glut. Let’s mow our own fucking lawns. I didn’t see any Salvadoran landscapers in 1983. A friend’s dad talked to the homeowners’ association and signed a contract to mow the community property on his riding mower for a nice wads of cash, of which my friend got a cut for helping. The lie that we don’t have enough low skill laborers… we have plenty. If there aren’t enough restaurant workers, then we need fewer but better restaurants. What we do have is a pumping-in of glut workers to sustain a glut of shit-factories, all in neoliberalism’s race to the ugly bottom.

Police. They make anarcho-tyranny work. Remember those riots in which Swedish police cracked down on native neighborhood watch patrols. The effective purpose of police is to protect them from us. And the globalists keep turning up the heat and pressing down on the lid.

Rebirth. Or, nationalism’s renaissance men. Be your best self. The Red Pill blogs — manosphere, pick-up, White nationalism, neoreaction — converged on a wholesale rejection of neoliberal virtues: tolerance, supplication, political correctness (lies), nihilism, ignorance. Do you even lift? The Alt-Right’s discussions had set us on our quests for individual masculine excellence, on up to making America great again.

Who are you? This commercial for New Zealand’s Steinlager beer is at least a decade old but it dramatizes the culminating events. Make sure you view it to its very last frame. This video shows… a lot of the thing that we believe in.

  3. The living environment that we White Americans created for ourselves is not aesthetic and it is not challenging and it is not inspiring and it is not pleasing.

    That statement can be disregarded as black-pill depressive, but give me a break.

    The cityscape, the suburban landscape, is not community orientated. And as it was built by white people, it might be reasoned that white people were not community oriented when it was built.

    The cities and suburbs were built under the aegis of a capitalist economy, the values of which are no longer shining and motivating and challenging and inspirational.

    There is no Shining City on the Hill, and there never was.

    ******************

    The view from the sidewalk, or the street — which is to say the view from anywhere that is not behind a windshield and within a vehicle on its way to somewhere else — is bleak. If the geographic area of the inhabited landscape in America is broke down into zones that are appealing to attractive people to spend time in, versus those which push a person to stay inside close the drapes and plug into the computer screen or watch tv? — 99.99 per cent of the geographic landscape is a wasteland of concrete cement and cars, and box stores and ugly buildings, and less than .01 per cent is a fun sidewalk cafe or a pleasant park.

    That is the legacy of 20th-century America. That is what White Americans built. Are the jews to blame for that, by somehow tightening the screws on the economy?

    The Predicament of Development seems to be part of the human condition, and beyond the political struggle which itself has now been enmeshed into the biological struggle of race.

    But perhaps it is worth considering. What happened to our aesthetics?

  4. @PA

    The bit about black and white responses to music was actually really interesting. Although I’d argue that gangsta rap has a K element to it.

  5. Yes.

    Apollonian > Faustian

    Mowed our own lawns, raked our own leaves, shoveled our own driveways. WTF happened?!

  6. PA, when did you change your stance on the police?

    I have never seen such a comment from you. White cops and white soldiers are the ones primarily protecting the system. If not for them, the US would be helpless. WN shall have to go through both them and the jews.

  7. I have family in the hotel business (which seems to create a lot of mini-Trump personality types) and I have a close friend who owns a major agricultural operation in Pennsylvania. They are white, practically all of their non-public-face employees are (legal) Central American immigrants, earning above minimum wage.

    They feel bad – perhaps ‘conflicted’ or ‘ambivalent’ is more apt – about not hiring more natives, and I think, ceteris paribus they would even absorb reasonable extra costs to do. But these are honest men, and their testimony is that, alas, there is no contest, because the local pool of potential low skill laborers is ruined for hard work.

    Not just the white ones, but that to them seems to be saddest. since avoidable in some saner counterfactual nation. But the native born and raised men of all ethnicities on the left side of the bell curve are, by and large, more trouble than they’re worth in the current cultural and economic environment. High turnover, untimeliness, impertinence, and absentee rates. Drug and alcohol abuse. Endless personal and ‘family’ drama, including run ins with the law, endless bogus ‘medical’ or ‘disability’ issues. And endless bogus claims for workman’s comp, harassment, discrimination, etc. Theft, vandalism, even sabotage as vengeance for ordinary disciplinary or management actions.

    E.g. agriculture guy tried hiring local white guys but stopped when he had to install x-rays and magnets to detect when some of these bastards started throwing hard to see staples and small nails into what would end up being your food. Apparently that is a common enough hazard these days that there is a whole industry specialized in providing the machine systems that do this and camouflaging their appearance so the employees don’t know they are there. But since he switched to Guatemalan Indios or whatever they are, the thing has never triggered once.

    These are men who, in that other world where we don’t have to live like this, could have been worthy of something decent, but now experience an entirely degraded and hopeless kind of life and character.

    Meanwhile, the Indios never complain, stay clean, show up on time, and ask for extra hours.

    To say that the kind of changes necessary to achieve the re-uplift of this vast, currently lost white male population are daunting is the understatement of the century.

  8. @RYU: yes, the police and military rank and file are on our side. They would love nothing more than to arrest troublemakers. But they are ordered to stand down and protect leftist street thugs. That ends January 20th.

  9. Kek))) — The bit about black and white responses to music was actually really interesting.

    Yeah, it probably deserves its own post. I broke my “sleep on it” rule with posting this yesterday afternoon. Evening is when I get the ideas and morning is quality-control. Completely different mindframes that work for me if I give each its due.

    Ryu — when did you change your stance on the police?

    Back on GLPiggy, a commenter convincingly explained how police devotes as many if not more resources to keeping an eye on a raped woman’s husband (to avert his retaliation) than they do in trying to track down the dindu. No idea if that’s true or not, but it sounded plausible. In Europe, pigs arrest you for saying “nigger” or “maybe we should increase immigration but at slightly slower rates” on Twitter. They arrested two Rotherdam fathers who tried to remove their underage daughters from a Paki whorehouse.

    That said, American cops are tribal in their own way, with their own loyalty beyond the stereotype of craven clinging to salary/pension. Tribe = other cops, family, friends. I have two police officers in my extended social circle. Good/normal guys, more cynical about the system than an outsider would suspect. And for all the talk of careerism/obedience, we are probably seeing a coup in FBI’s middle ranks — in collaboration with NYPD — actual acts of conscience and revulsion with the Clintons and with Comey’s apparent cowardice.

    I don’t write the cops off on an individual basis but I have no illusions of how uniformed people under orders can act when satisfied with the larger state of affairs.

    Handle — To say that the kind of changes necessary to achieve the re-uplift of this vast, currently lost white male population are daunting is the understatement of the century.

    Unfortunately, I’ve read about similar such business owners’ problems with low-skill White labor despite their best-faith efforts to hire Americans. To say that the problem is systemic is an understatement. Change has to come top-down — from a new noblesse oblige elite — and from the bottom-up as well. Diagnosis is easy: neoliberalism, open borders, glut economics, all under active policies of noblesse malice from the top. The cure: it has to be radical. One person noted in the previous thread that a major shake-up is undesirable. I disagree: I am comfortable personally, but I see where things are going at the present trajectory and it is not good.

    Is it all bad? Hardscrabble Farmer, who commented here a few times, once wrote that he hires younger Millennials frequently and they are excellent, eager workers. I’m sure geographic differences are a big factor. There is a vignette I remember from 3 or so years ago. We’re home-rental vacationing in a 100% White, non-glamorous small town in the South. I call a local restaurant about carryout and arrive before it’s ready. Sitting nearby was the restaurant’s manager in what looked like his late-20s and a young hiree at at a nearby booth. The manager was having something of a mentor-protegee talk with him about work ethic and such. Not patronizing or disciplinary from the tone as far as I could tell (more like an orientation speech), but rather from a common-sense perspective, almost like an older brother. The young new employee was there for a dishwashing job. I’ve done that gig myself, perhaps longer than I should have.

    My macroeconomic solution has to be part of the plan: “If there aren’t enough restaurant workers, then we need fewer but better restaurants.”

    PS: curious about Elk’s and Thordaddy’s thoughts on the video. The video is pretty straightforward but it has transcendent elements (and curious if it passes TD’s purity test!)

  10. Police in the West are doing the exact same job and function that they have for 500+ years. Active, heavy-handed law enforcement is one of the things that has kept unmanageable, useless people out of the gene pool in civilized places like Japan or NW Europe – take a look at Africans and their wild, useless, shiftless demeanor for a glimpse into the kind of people you get when law and order do not prevail.

    Police in Europe and the USA don’t make policy or legislate their own views into their work in the field, they just follow orders.

    It is truly foolish for anyone to think they can form a WN movement of any real power while opposing police and military. You won’t even accomplish your most initial objectives. It’s a complete non-starter.

  11. RE:“The bit about black and white responses to music was actually really interesting.”

    sorry, if i’m overlooking something readily apparent, but I don’t know what the above bit was referring to??

  12. “They arrested two Rotherdam fathers who tried to remove their underage daughters from a Paki whorehouse.”

    Is that literally true? Really? See, i can believe that in theory, but not in any kind of practically imaginable way, BECAUSE it seems so impractical theoretically.

    That’s why i came up with white ennui theory, and how it would logically emanate more fully in Europe as that was the source of the whiteness and the eventual ennui worldwide. Point being that the ‘ennui theory’ isn’t borne of practical logic but more a sense of ‘what-the-fuk-else-could-account-for-something-so-ass-backward?”

    The scariest thought of all would be that there’s some kind of divine direction that led to white ennui, because by my lights that would be one and the same with a endgame for civilization writ large.

  13. As I’ve been saying for a while, the Alt-Right has a lot of allies in the FBI.

    Yes, and as I’ve been saying for 2 years, the Obama coalition came to early and they tipped their anti-white hands too early. Whites still have an electoral majority and a stranglehold on government apparatus within law enforcement, military and local government.

  14. “They arrested two Rotherdam fathers who tried to remove their underage daughters from a Paki whorehouse.”

    Is that literally true?

    I don’t have a link handy but it is a well known story and it is very likely literally true. I will search for a link in a minutes.

    In the meantime, Mark Steyn has an article from October 24, Descent Into Evil,

    http://www.steynonline.com/7567/descent-into-evil

    In which he describes an Arab in Austria who anally raped a 10-year old white boy in the showers of a public pool, causing “severe anal injuries”, but which rape conviction was overturned,

    The Supreme Court yesterday overturned the conviction, accepting the defence lawyer’s claim that the original court had not done enough to ascertain whether or not the rapist realised the child was saying no…

  15. According to The Star,

    http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/rotherham-dads-were-arrested-after-tracking-down-abusers-1-6807187

    Two fathers whose daughters were victims of child sex exploitation tracked down their abusers – only to be arrested by police themselves.

    The dads had attempted to remove their daughters from houses where abuse was taking place, but they were the ones who were then arrested by police. Prof Jay’s inquiry said police often treated victims with ‘contempt’, frequently arresting them while taking no action against those committing offences.

    Her report said: “In two of the cases, fathers tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused, only to be arrested themselves when police were called to the scene. “In a small number of cases, the victims themselves were arrested for offences such as breach of the peace or being drunk and disorderly, with no action taken against the perpetrators of rape and sexual assault against children.” The report revealed there has been only a ‘small number’ of successful prosecutions for offences against children.

  16. Thanks Elk

    — Yes, and as I’ve been saying for 2 years, the Obama coalition came to early and they tipped their anti-white hands too early. Whites still have an electoral majority and a stranglehold on government apparatus within law enforcement, military and local government. (Camlost)

    And European leaders tipped their anti-White hands even more brazenly where Europeans are even more demographically solid and culturally cohesive than Americans. Europeans also have recurring patterns of ruthless bloodletting when pushed too far. Reading Elk’s links above, I say none too soon.

  17. “which rape conviction was overturned,”

    This kind of thing will lead to, and justify, the rise of Nationalist vigilantism. It’s coming, and I, for one, welcome it.

    They could not make it easier for us if they tried.

  18. TFW Matt Prater kicks a Hail Mary field goal tying the game in the last seconds, then this comes on and the bar erupts in another round of cheers

  19. God, if i were a hardcore Trump backer, I’d be pushing stuff like this: i cannot believe the Dem stooping to pop culture; that is one thing i totally give credit to GOPs on: they don’t kowtow to national celebrity…… I mean, Jay Z was an admittted drug dealer, for crissakes; is he really the stuff for politico photo-ops?

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/news-video/video-hes-not-an-evolved-soul-to-me-jay-z-on-trump/article32690865/

    Perhaps Trump doesn’t brown-nose celebs because he knows better: he IS one.

  20. MGE, I am less than enthusiastic about that ad. What fucking reason was there to feature so many colored faces? Yes, eye on the prize. Win the election. White voter enthusiasm is stratospheric, something Romney didn’t have (12 million eligible White voters stayed home) and Trump’s election strategy requires dampening non-White enthusiasm for Hillary. Bad optics in that ad, but I understand the supposed strategy behind them.

  21. Yes lots of brown faces, but I’ll give it a pass because he had the stones to call out Yellen, Soros, and Blankfein.

  22. Perhaps Trump doesn’t brown-nose celebs because he knows better: he IS one.

    He’s a businessman first, whose foray into entertainment was very successful. I don’t doubt what you say about celeb egos – I have my concerns as well. But from everything I’ve heard HRC’s narcissistic rage fueled tantrums are legendary. I’ve never heard of Trump treating his underlings with the type of malice that Hillary is known for.

  23. “What fucking reason was there to feature so many colored faces?”

    Maybe the reason wasn’t as coldly tactical as you assume; i.e., “keep your eyes on the prize,” etc. Maybe his national vision and elected mandate include hope and optimism for ‘minos,’ too. And maybe some of his ‘natural’ constituents are more enthused now having been heartened by that gesture?

    I don’t think Trump is a hard-partisan WN ‘deep down.’

    Or maybe I’m wrong.

  24. “Yes lots of brown faces, but I’ll give it a pass because he had the stones to call out Yellen, Soros, and Blankfein.”

    Just curious, MGE: when you generously say you’ll ‘give it a pass,” I wonder: what precisely do you feel you are excusing?

  25. Just curious, MGE: when you generously say you’ll ‘give it a pass,” I wonder: what precisely do you feel you are excusing?

    To be completely honest, I didn’t really notice the brown faces until PA raised that objection. Then again, I don’t think I am as viscerally effected (affected?) by that sight as PA.

  26. Brown faces, in such frequency and in such prominence are not America. Go look at any street, any movie, any public space prior to 1995 or 1986 or 1970 and you will actually see an America. How about giving some hope, for a change, to the goddamned people who can’t even be represented as they are, but only validated by an over-generous nod and bow to the world’s melange of parasites who’ve been flooding this land, since 1965, as part of the greatest invasion in human history. How about giving a people who have nowhere else to go because this is their home, a recognition of their own identity. What a realm of the living dead this hell-burned land had become. I don’t think some people understand what was done to them. I guess a fish accustomed to sewage thinks it’s water.

  27. The ad was a shot across the bow towards the globalist money changers. What other candidate could get away with that? Certainly not the GOP cucks of yore who were in their pocket. Trump’s roast of HRC was another moment of class treason that affirmed for me that Trump was actually willing to alienate himself from these blood sucking vampires for love of his country.

    There was a great comment I ran across on MPC about Huma that sums up my feeling about these people. Heartiste reposted on his blog later.

    “I lol whenever I see Huma’s Vedic mug; what else can you do? She’s the type of craven creature that can only come to exist in a late-era, openly distressed bureaucracy. Nakedly power hungry, Machiavellian, completely indifferent to the struggles of the Historic American Nation. Just a wicked, black-eyed, soulless political climber who happens to be one of the most powerful advisors in the world. Do you think she has the interests of the farmer in Kansas foremost in her mind? Does she get a patriotic rush when poring over America’s storied history or take pride upon hearing a a perfect pitch rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner? Is there any doubt that every thought that crosses her mind in relation to the American people is overtly hostile?

    She is the portrait of a globalized, hostile elite, the modern arch-cosmopolitan. Unelected, unaccountable, and completely alien to the people of the nation she “represents”. A doll-eyed technocrat married to a human penis who peddles influence at the expense of the American people. The ultimate betrayal of the white man’s trusting nature by scheming middle managerial minorities distilled into a single HUMAn being. The fact she exists is enough to make a man believe in pure evil.

    Say what you will about old Bill, but at least he had the decency to pursue his infidelities with a chubby-cheeked rat-faced member of a historically degenerate race. That Hillary’s muse of choice is a horse-faced Saudi Muslim striver one generation removed from the s**tting streets should tell you all you need to know about her judgement.”

  28. How about giving some hope, for a change, to the goddamned people who can’t even be represented as they are, but only validated by an over-generous nod and bow to the world’s melange of parasites who’ve been flooding this land, since 1965, as part of the greatest invasion in human history. How about giving a people who have nowhere else to go because this is their home, a recognition of their own identity.

    PA I agree with that sentiment. I have more to say but don’t have the time to flesh it out right now.

  29. “That Hillary’s muse of choice is a horse-faced Saudi Muslim striver one generation removed from the s**tting streets should tell you all you need to know about her judgement.”

    Exactly. The email leaks have revealed the level of incompetence of Hillary and her gang, and that traitor political class in general.

    Not just that they couldn’t set up a clandestine communications network, but then also, the tone of their conversation is contemporary internet-speak and gossip. I can’t describe the tone with any eloquence here, but you know what i mean. It is all crappy people and petty lives, and there is no dignity.

    ************

    And on all the Satanic ritual, it has to be considered damning even if it is only an imitation of the real thing, because who in their right mind is drawn to that stuff?

    In my opinion it IS absolutely Satanic behind the closed doors, the stuff that has not been leaked and may not get leaked. Real bloodletting, real live sacrifice, all the rest of it. The worst of the worst: child snuff films, for instance. Vox Day characterized it as the return of the religion of Babylon, and i think that is right.

    Engaging in that evil is how one buys into the power structure.

    Among the normies, i don’t think that they can believe that that stuff is really going on. It is too much like a conspiracy weird made-up tv show.

  30. What I like about PA’s site is that he understands the power of images. Imagery, or graphic violence done to the mind, takes a few salient signposts and converts them into myths, art, symbols and even religion. In a recent article, PA showed us a Europe “divided in two” — the free and nascent East, versus the Immigrant-Friendly and Losing West. This image would have been powerful had it been broadcast on network TV. Earlier still, in a comic strip format, the host of this website showed us a MAGA series of cartoon boxes, leading up to the 2016 election. Imagine a newspaper with all 16 of its cartoons playing variations on the theme.

    it is startling to imagine how easy it would be to turn the ship of culture if images like these were part and parcel of the daily mass media, rather than the current lineup we have.

  31. What I like about PA’s site is that he understands the power of images. Imagery, or graphic violence done to the mind,

    Yes, understanding of imagery is sorely lacking on some other alt-right sites. CH and Sailer can get especially tedious to read due to the excess verbiage and lack or organization on the page.

    In some cases images should be used to speak a story, in lieu of words.

  32. A doll-eyed technocrat married to a human penis who peddles influence at the expense of the American people.

    Thanks for this amazing comment on Huma, that’s a great piece of writing.

    But I vehemently disagree with the alt righters who keep talking about how physically attractive she is, that makes me want to hurl. She has a very “equestrian” look, in my estimation.

  33. LOL, one of my Berniebro SWPL friends on facebook is going unhinged on the whole “world financial meltdown” thing about a Trump Presidency. He didn’t take too kindly to me referring to him as a Berniebro.

  34. “Prop Hate”

    The media tells
    By omission
    Doubled the black vote
    So we must commission
    A check and balance
    On something so abnormal
    It caused suspicion
    A Trumpslide
    Was “black man’s” decision
    Five hundreds years of brainwash
    “White supremacy” is precision
    Now envision
    How it all goes left
    To spite our vision…

  35. Between you gentlemen and the commenters at CH and VD, I feel the high morale the day before our showdown with Sauron’s armies.

  36. “We come now to the very brink, where hope and despair are akin. To waver is to fall.”

    — Lord Aragorn

    Win or lose, Trump has accomplished many things through sheer force of will and conviction. He has torn the mask off the idol and pushed liberalism to its last throw. Now it’s time for those who follow to their part and extend the groundwork and focus on winning hearts and minds.

    Friends and allies – we may disagree on a few minor points but from this day forward let us not shirk our most basic duty. Never let any of your friends or loved ones remained trapped in the old deluded cuckservative morass of thinking that this is still our country. Let’s make a pact to correct and win them over at every opportunity, in public or private.

  37. “the answer to who are we — and why we must continue to be — is elusive beyond the tautological 14 Words. Do we exist to create and produce things and is defiance of nature the meaning of life? Not if you put it that way, is the smart answer.”

    No, I don’t think defiance of nature is the meaning of life —– but merely by dint of its power, originality and gains in innovation, the spiritual aspect that’s been honed from the white man’s history of achievement is a quest to overcome or ‘beat’ or ‘cheat’ mortality; immortality is the technological compliment to religious hereafter grace in western mythos.

    FWIW, I think that is indisputable and unassailable with western history, philosophy and religion comprising a multidisciplinary attest to my claim. And from there, I think it explains a lot of what we discuss here; for many, it is seen as cold and misguided for man to try to bridge the natural abyss between man and machine, at which an embrace of the primitive ‘other’ is seen as life force and something vital yet missing from western man’s mission; the quest for immortality is a source of the western ennui we speak of. It explains why the stronger and more powerful west puts up with the more primitive and leftist assaults that it does.

    It’s lonely at the top.

  38. edit: ‘compliment’ in above quote should have been ‘technological complement,’ as in the materialistic ‘complement’ to spiritual quest for hereafter existence, etc.

  39. My fiancee lives in Charlotte and I had to back off pressuring her to vote for Trump. It was getting uncomfortable. If he loses NC by one vote I will take the blame. She just won’t vote for him, but would vote for any other Republican, though. She despises Hillary, so no worry there.

  40. “In my opinion it IS absolutely Satanic behind the closed doors, the stuff that has not been leaked and may not get leaked. Real bloodletting, real live sacrifice, all the rest of it. The worst of the worst: child snuff films, for instance. Vox Day characterized it as the return of the religion of Babylon, and i think that is right.”

    well, if that’s so, it’s been so, for a long, long time —– on both ‘sides.’

    I think some of the specifics in the above quote are ridiculous. But even if that bit of wickednessfantasia was word-for-word true, you’d have to eventually deal with the sober reality that Trump, at some point, was in whsat could be interpreted as cahoots, whether through campaign donations, common finanancial allies or whatever.

    Along those lines, I do agree with what elk, cam and other non-outliers have noted in more sober moments: to play at that level, you’ve got to be dirty—– dirty as hell.

  41. It’s lonely at the top.

    Not at all. We’ve got each other. And we get into all sorts of trouble when we forget that there is Someone above us.

  42. I’d be interested to see some sort of secret revolt —- secret in plain view, a la reagan’s win over carter in 80s, a complete weekend-turnaround surprise —— but it just doesn’t look that way. Trump went out and pissed off the decisive demos very solidly and completely: women and Hispanics; he’s now looking at recently unprecedented GOP losses in Arizona and other states that were GOP strongholds. Rotely depressing configurings, but there it is.

  43. Trump will win Arizona, i would bet.

    I think he may turn Minnesota as well.

    In the thousands of yards i pass by and look at, in this prominent suburb, i have seen literally no more presidential yard signs than i have fingers. And yet there are hundreds and thousands of signs for local candidates, state legislators especially.

    On one prominent roadside some faggot put up a Lincoln –> Kennedy –> Hillary sign (or however that sign goes), and then the next house put up a Trump sign, and then a few days later the house after that put up a Trump sign.

    And that has been about the extent of it, and i think it is a good representative of how people feel and are going to vote, in this place that almost always goes democrat. No one is putting up yard signs for president, but Trump is more popular by a margin (i am guessing).

    Also on the act of voting. I have often thought it would be a good (and difficult) statistics problem, to determine the chances that one vote would determine the election. And this is not to blackpill, but i am not looking forward to standing in line tomorrow and it has crossed my mind to do something else — HOWEVER i will do so in spite of the inconsequential odds, because that time and energy is buying into the outcome and making it personal.

    And so that if there appears to be fraud, i can speak against it. Obviously everyone else please vote, and i will be doing so no matter what.

  44. I don’t mean to suggest for a second that i wasn’t going to bother standing in line for a vote.

    This is great to actually care enough to do so.

    Any recommends for a live feed to follow the results tomorrow?

  45. I’d be interested to see some sort of secret revolt —- secret in plain view, a la reagan’s win over carter in 80s, a complete weekend-turnaround surprise —— but it just doesn’t look that way.

    “That’s just, like, your opinion, man.”

    Informed people who are pro Trump are putting it at a coin toss, and that seems about right.

    I think Trump is going to win 55 or 60 per cent of the popular vote, and that the Electoral College is going to be to the wire; and that should it go to the basilisk, accusations of fraud will never die.

    And fraud includes a lot of activity that is not even illegal, but is against the Spirit of Democracy: things like bussing people to the poles, and filling out their forms for them.

    And with the absentee ballots and the machines … there are so many ways to slant the count.

    I heard one interesting anecdote about the voting machines that they can be set up so that the choices are not framed equally, so that for instance a vote for Trump might require clicking through two screens instead of one. Just an anecdote, but even something like that is significant, and anyone voting on a machine might film their experience for the record and to make a case, should it come to that.

  46. Trump went out and pissed off the decisive demos very solidly and completely: women and Hispanics;

    Hispanics have yet to be a decisive demo anywhere, ever. Sailer has illustrated this many times to contrast with the always-predicted “Hispanic electoral tidal wave” that the MSM is fond of gushing about. It’s not 2055 yet.

  47. How about giving some hope, for a change, to the goddamned people who can’t even be represented as they are, but only validated by an over-generous nod and bow to the world’s melange of parasites who’ve been flooding this land, since 1965, as part of the greatest invasion in human history. How about giving a people who have nowhere else to go because this is their home, a recognition of their own identity.

    Yes I agree with all the above though I would add that I believe it is possible to realize that vision while at the same time being mindful of the fact that America has been a polyglot nation since it’s inception. This is by no means to promote a hackneyed romanticized vision of diversity. It means we have a rightful claim to assert our identity and interests and stand up to slanderous attacks on our people within the less than ideal environment for us to thrive. We don’t have to end up like South Africa.

  48. And from there, I think it explains a lot of what we discuss here; for many, it is seen as cold and misguided for man to try to bridge the natural abyss between man and machine, at which an embrace of the primitive ‘other’ is seen as life force and something vital yet missing from western man’s mission; the quest for immortality is a source of the western ennui we speak of. It explains why the stronger and more powerful west puts up with the more primitive and leftist assaults that it does.

    I disagree with your interpretation of Christianity. According to Christian doctrine, each human possesses a soul that is divine and sacrosanct. It furthermore teaches generosity towards the downtrodden (the Beatitudes are not an ancillary doctrine to Christianity). Therein lies the more parsimonious explanation of western man’s tolerance towards all forms of human life, from industrial to primitive. It is not because we are bored or lonely.

    On a personal note it seems as though you are arguing that your personal hybrid form represents the ideal corporeal human phenotype – if so that seems like a bit of hubris, but I suppose none of us are above self-mythologizing here.

  49. “On a personal note it seems as though you are arguing that your personal hybrid form represents the ideal corporeal human phenotype – if so that seems like a bit of hubris,”

    well, i don’t think so. but who am i to say i’m above some vainglorious hubris. My gut response says my ‘personal hybrid form’ may (or may not) provide some outlier perspective that just might be a bit more objective and detached, as my loyalty verities are somewhat coralled into being detached, but that’s about it in terms of any hubris that i feel, at least.

    I guess I probably do at times feel remiss at not being able to get swept up in the larger Team- ?-vs-Team-? that straight down-the-line ethnic interest voting provides. But hey, what’s a halfrican to do?…….

    Again, perhaps if you’re black or if you’re white, tomorrow determines if it’s “The End of the World.” But for those of us relegated to the absurdist margins, it’s just another episode of “As The World Turns.”
