I’d just like to quote something AC said, while commenting on my r-type thought experiment, that reminds me of the warning in Best Post.
The time will come when the left will die all by itself, if only we let it. We’ll have the option of extending a hand to help them. Being honestly empathetic, we will be tempted to, given what they will endure. It is up to us to remember what they are, and that they have no place among us.
When the reaper comes for the rabbits, let him have his harvest and don’t interfere.
They are evil, and should reap what they have sown.
It bears repeating because we have been brainwashed by r-propaganda into being the Good Guys aka saving the clueless dolts from the mess of their own creation. Not all who play victim deserve rescue, not all that glitters is gold.
Pathological altruism is their frame. Blameless victimhood, time after time, crime after crime. It’s been decades like this.
Note how it rarely actually impacts their own fitness? It rarely touches their neighbourhoods, their kids? We’re generally smart people, is there any fitting excuse for the actions of people like Merkel?
See: Why mockery? For a discussion on how they’ll try to ingroup with us as times toughen up, taking advantage of our loyalty blindspot.
Play a game we can call Stress Tolerance. If the authority figure of your choice were bearing down on them, would they snitch (going as far as to make things up) or remain loyal to you?
9/10, it’s a snitch.
So 9/10, if you see them asking for help, pleading exceptional circumstances what should your reaction be?
Don’t go riding in to save them. You don’t stand only for yourself, but also those who are loyal to you. If you take a chance, you hurt your ingroup, your thede.
As the Polish proverb says: Not my circus, not my monkeys.
Don’t be the ditzy woman who nursed the snake back to health.
“You knew I was a snake when you let me in.”
They made their bed, they’re already dead.
From experience, it gets easier after the first time.
Enjoy the show.
