Our government enforces Civil Rights law through the “disparate impact” doctrine: if in a large group, one smaller group is doing poorly while the rest are doing well, it is assumed that the larger group caused the lack of success of the smaller.
This occurs because we are reasoning backward. We start with the precept that all people are equal, which means that they should all have the same result. Therefore, “something else” must have caused the disparate impact.
That idea extends from egalitarianism itself. If the impoverished masses are poor, it must be the fault of those in charge, even if the masses bred themselves into starvation. Therefore, blame the leaders and remove them, putting the masses in their place.
While this logic is fundamentally backward, it appeals to the human psyche because we use a similar logic. We assume that we are right, and when our actions do not work out as we had planned, we blame the world. It is the order of reality that is broken, we think, instead of us. We are equal to the world, at least in how we perceive things in our big brains.
You see, to the Left, the news is The Narrative. The Narrative is designed to advance the interests of the Cathedral. Beheading Donald Trump as a “just kidding” sort of a thing is a great way to subliminally push assassination as more acceptable.
Having a traumatized 11-Year Old freak out and having to explain how hilariously funny the whole thing was to the young man’s mom brings it home on a gut level. Then it doesn’t help The Narrative so much so we can’t have that get any coverage.
This is why the Left excoriates its own for honestly expressing what they sincerely believe would be acceptable and good. What the Left believes to be acceptable and good is sick, immoral and genuinely despicable. It has no place in any civilized society. But then again, no decently civilized society would tolerate what the Left wants to be common accepted practice. The Left just doesn’t want you to figure that out until it’s too late.
SCIENCE SAYS!: Noodle-armed bitch-tittied nü-males are more likely to be shitlibs.
An academic study from researchers at Brunel University London assessed 171 men, looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference, along with their views on redistribution of wealth and income inequality. The study, published in the Evolution and Human Behavior journal, found that weaker men were more likely to favor socialist policies than stronger men.
After the course had finished and the customers had left I went to give the other staff a hand to pack up the gear. One of the divers, who was also an instructor when I wasn’t available, asked me why I had got out of the pool to pee. I remember staring at him with a blank look on my face. He may as well have asked me why I sat down to take a dump. Recognizing my confusion he let me off the hook:
“Just pee in the pool, dude. Everyone else does.”
I grimaced. “No, they don’t”
“Yes, we do,” said every other staff member present.
It was one of those moments when your entire world-view shifts. There was my life when I assumed that everyone else was a responsible non pool-peer like myself, and then there was my life when I knew that there were at least two other guys in the pool with me who were quite happily emptying their bladders for me to swim around in underwater.
There was also an in-between time of sheer horror that lasted about four seconds as I digested this planar shift in my reality.
“The pool is full of chemicals, dude,” said my now quite disgusting colleague. “It’s what the chemicals are there for.”
“The chemicals are there for inconsiderate morons,” I said. “They’re not there for everyone to be inconsiderate morons on purpose.”
Everyone just laughed. They weren’t able to take any offense due to the fact that they all thought that it was absolutely hilarious that not only was I getting out of the pool to pee, but that I actually assumed that everyone else had my same self-control.
It’s an isolated example but it demonstrates the effect that controls and protections have on our lives. Instead of making people behave more responsibly, controls have the opposite effect.
During my early years, the “English system” of measurement annoyed me. What was the sense in knowing that there were three teaspoons to a tablespoon, sixteen ounces to a pound, eight pints to a gallon and four dashes to a teaspoon? It seemed arcane, arbitrary, alien and taxing.
Years later, after having spent many of my most pleasurable hours in the kitchen, it became clear that like many things, the English system only makes sense once one has some experience of the domain of knowledge. A teaspoon is frequently the most useful measurement for spices, oils and vinegars, and the other measurements make sense when one considers the types of amounts that are used in cooking for a normal family.
In contrast, the metric system (spit)* requires that one remember a series of random numbers in amounts that are divisible by ten or fifty for convenience, but somehow never seem to be convenient. Exactly why would one want to put 350 grams of flour into a recipe, when a cup and a third would be easier to remember? The measurement of a “cup” fits the task; the metric does not.
And yet, all of our “educated” and “enlightened” citizens seem to love the metric system. The reason is simple: it is a human projection onto the world.
The more one gets used to these curiously intelligent monkeys, the more it becomes clear that projection — seeing oneself in the world — and transference — finding someone else to take the blame for failure — are the de facto norm of human behavior, which is not deliberate but ad hoc, or in response to what came before it and rationalized afterwards as deliberate.
The metric system represents the darkest part of humanity, which is a desire to assuage our fear of the world by consuming it.
In this sense, a nationalist sense, every nation must find its own path and through that independence, will determine its own future. That becomes difficult when we consider that human impact on the environment concerns resources that are shared worldwide. Then again, when a superpower acts, others will follow, without a treaty being required.
The world is denial of the cause of its environmental problems; “climate change” is a Leftist invention designed to disguise the real problem, which is population growth which is almost exclusively occurring in the third world. The Leftist “solution” is to transfer wealth from the first world to the third, which will then cause a further population boom.
A more sensible policy would be to end immigration, deport those foreign to the founding group in all nations, and then stop giving aid and economic trade to the third world. Let us take care of our own needs, and then world population will not explode on a boom created by Western economies, Western medicine, Western political stability and Western goodwill.
When we take care of ourselves first, each nation realizes that it must solve its own problems, and then has to ask itself what type of life fits its people. For many in the world, subsistence farming and tribal warlord social order provides the best sustainable option. With the withdrawal of Western companies, these societies could define their own future.
“The system is unequal,” you keep hearing. Everybody needs a fair chance. and I agree. Everybody needs the chance to prove themselves. Every person must have access to the basic social, cultural and economic footholds needed to make it in society today. This is a non-debatable issue that all systems agree upon.
Children deserve to live their childhood, get a solid education and be culturally enabled to take on the world by the time they graduate. This is the starting point that exists everywhere, and where all people kick off from zero, from equal standing. So what seems to be the real demand of the equality jihadist?
What the equality jihadist fails to tell you, is that they also want equality of outcomes. What if, by some foul nasty trick, someone again gets ahead of the rest? What if by some cheat code, inequality rears up its ugly head again and be a cause of injustice and misery for humanity?
You hear a lot about equality and fairness but this is all a scrambling tactic hiding the real motive behind the calling for equality: the obliteration of any end results beyond the generic and the mediocre.
