The real price of education

Love of learning.

https://www.class-central.com/report/moocs-started-completely-free-now/

“The fact that MOOCs were free sparked widespread interest in them. Students got excited because they were getting to learn from the best in the world for free (and that’s why I built Class Central to help me keep track of them.) The media got excited because they got to write clickbait titles about the death of universities.”

They are gone, at this point they’re pretty tax havens.
When you kick out the people who build/can run a place, its rep suffers. Who knew?

“But once the hype died down and MOOC providers tried to monetize, they found it difficult to do so without charging for content. Matt Walton, chief product officer at FutureLearn, said this about their recent pricing change: “Research we carried out showed that a certificate on its own doesn’t offer enough value for money and that some people don’t want or need a certificate.”

The good intentions disappeared once they realized how many people want to learn. So being liberal, they hid the data behind paywalls for rich kids. We need a pirate bay for MOOC data, kinda like the academic paper pirate bay.
Now doing a master’s online actually costs far more than an IRL one here.
This is bubble pricing. I oppose this.
It’s funny people knew they were getting ripped off once they saw the information though. So the response was to hide the information. Wikipedia flashbacks, ew.
Once this bubble pops, academia will be reviled. Lifelong debt! Ruin!

I’d still like to see PDF uploads from current students of all ongoing courses. Come on, rebel! Help a brother out with your powerpoints. They could make a new category on piratebay…. Call it “Fuck the system, end tuition?” DARE I DREAM.

China and Russia: Digging the US Dollar’s Grave

That’s… that’s pretty much it.

China, the only country with enough weight to challenge U.S. financial hegemony, has just announced through its People’s Bank a payment versus payment, PVP, system for transactions in Russian rubles and Chinese yuans so as to reduce the influence of the U.S. dollar on international transactions.

The grand design behind the One Belt, One Road Initiative, ICR, has an integral gold-based currency component that could change the balance of global power in favor of the Eurasian nations, from Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union, EAEU, countries to China and all of Asia.

But I’m imagining things, right, gaslighters?
Could ya Google it? Would it kill ya to Google it first?

The Asians are our friends because they smile at us.

This is how China and Russia have financed the U.S. military budget in recent years, by purchasing bonds and bills that allow the U.S. Treasury to finance this deficit without raising interest rates.

They’re so polite!

“It soon dawned on me that the real question to ask is: “Why are the Chinese rude?”

Yong Chen, tourism researcher and post-doctoral fellow at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, said most “bad” tourists don’t intend to be “bad” or “tourists”, they are just being themselves – they are being Chinese.”

Ahem.

The U.S. military budget is aimed at controlling China and Russia and the Eurasian bloc, and destroying their economies, while those countries need to hold dollar reserves against possible future U.S. currency wars.

With friends like that.

This is why you don’t develop foreign nations. Eventually they’ll screw you.

“The Chinese have always been a cruel people – not only to animals or to neighbors but to each other as well. It’s in their arts, their literature, their philosophy…”

China, Russia, allied countries of Eurasia, the rest of the BRICS countries, countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, SCO, and possible members such as Iran and Turkey, are preparing to reduce their vulnerability to a bankrupt world banking system.

Notice everyone hates Iran lately?

In 2016, China joined the International Monetary Fund as one of the five main currencies in the currency basket by which the IMF calculates the value of its Special Drawing Rights. That step gave the yuan a big boost in international acceptance. Before 2004 it was not permitted as an instrument of international trade outside of China, but since then its monetary authorities have laid a careful foundation for the internationalization of the yuan, which already exceeds expectations, to become a global anchor, a reserve currency that will overtake the Euro in the next few years.

Putin doesn’t like Trump, he’s playing Trump to buy time.
His eggs are already in a Chinese basket.

In a 2016 report, the HSBC bank reported that since 2012, the Yuan (or renminbi, RMB) has become the fifth most used currency in the world. Elvira Nabiullina, governor of the Central Bank of Russia said: “We have finished working on our own payments system, and if something happens, all operations in SWIFT format (World Society for Interbank Financial Telecommunication) will also work within our system. We have created an alternative,” something which alarms the U.S. Treasury, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street banks.”

Wait, it gets worse.

In order to avoid a steep fall in oil revenue, Suadi Arabia’s King Salman visited Moscow in early October where no doubt the plan for a petroyuan was discussed

China has been pushing for more use of the yuan in oil settlements. As the country has become the largest importer of oil, surpassing the U.S., it can call the shots internationally and provide greater energy security. So Beijing hopes to challenge the dollar by establishing a futures market with its own currency and reports indicate that China is willing to introduce a benchmark index of oil with a price in yuan in the coming months.

Elon Musk, you’re our only hope.

An oil futures market based on the yuan will stimulate demand for its currency that will give China strategic influence.

Watch where the weak ones flock.

Due to sanctions and global intimidation by the U.S. Treasury Department, Iran, in particular, was one of the first to adopt yuan-based oil sales. Now in 2017, Venezuela is following suit. For the same reason, Russia agreed to trade some oil based on the yuan in 2015. Any decline in the status of the dollar severely weakens Washington’s ability to wage its economic war against Russia and destabilize the Eurasian bloc.

China and Russia do not seek to attack the dollar to destroy it, but to create an independent alternative reserve currency for other nations that want to protect themselves from increasingly frequent financial attacks by U.S. Treasury banks, Wall Street and hedge funds. 

In the same way that treating cancer is good for the tumor.

Now, China and Russia’s system of settling bilateral payments is being extended to other Belt and Road Initiative countries in Eurasia, to the BRICS countries and to Venezuela as part of its geopolitical orbit, the Chinese government’s declaration contributes towards creating this alternative monetary system. Moreover, as an alternative backed by gold, independent of the politically explosive and speculative U.S. dollar system, in years to come it could protect China’s allies from economic attacks and financial war

Message is clear: We’re not going down with Uncle Sam.

http://www.scmp.com/news/china/economy/article/2118798/chinas-foreign-exchange-reserves-continue-rise-fresh-boost

The central bank has “a stronger grip” on the yuan exchange rate now thanks to the adoption of a murky counter-cyclical factor in setting the daily price of the yuan, Larry Hu, the chief China economist for Macquarie Securities, wrote in a note.

Corrupt as ever.

China’s current account surplus was US$106.3 billion in the first nine months of this year, or about 1.2 per cent of its gross domestic product.

Meanwhile, it reported a US$60.8 billion surplus in its financial account for the first nine months, a big turnaround from a deficit of US$389 billion in the same period last year.

As in, it hides from you based on where you view it.

United States can get most of what it wanted, including intimidating and bullying anyone in the world, partly because of its almighty U.S. dollar. It’s a known fact that the U.S. is broke. America is the world’s biggest debtor nation – owing more than US$20.37 trillion – and climbing. Whenever they run out of money, they would start the printing machines to print more.

Trump has said this.

It’s the demands for U.S. dollar that keeps the currency note valuable. But a combination of geopolitical pressures could spark the end of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency, according to the head of FX strategy at Saxo Bank. When the faith on the notes disappears, the powerful America could crumble. That day has actually already begun – quietly and slowly but surely.

John Hardy of Saxo Bank said – “The world is turning its back on the almighty dollar.” And thanks to President Donald Trump, the day when business depends lesser on the U.S. dollar than it is today has been leapfrogged. The U.S.-Europe transatlantic relationship is fast loosening its shine as the E.U. realizes it’s time they become more independent.

The EU connection is over-stated. It’s Russia and China.

The E.U. doesn’t need the U.S. to survive. In fact, the European Union’s economy is bigger than the United States. For the second year in a row in 2016, China – not the U.S. – was actually the world’s biggest economy, generating US$21.3 trillion in economic output. That number is enough to wipe out today’s U.S. national debt, with some loose change.

True.

And European Union – not the U.S. – was in second place behind China, churning US$19.2 trillion while third place America produced US$18.6 trillion. Together, China and the EU generated about 33.9% of planet Earth’s economic output of US$119.4 trillion. However, the U.S. could easily send the Middle Kingdom Chinese into financial chaos by wrecking its economy – with Section 301.

“Unless it’s about China.”

The equation is very simple;

High IQ population, accounting for density = Lots of $$$$

But sure, you’ve got a few thousand brains in Silicon Valley. Good for you. And how many will flee to Israel when the Petrodollar is ruined for good? Geniuses per person in America, expected to save the rest? What if they refuse to work? Why do you allow second passports? At least stop cucking for China, your future superiors.

China knew it but has no choice but to play ball, for now. And the Chinese also knew the only way to fight back eventually is to rely lesser on the U.S. dollar, without which Washington would not be able to tell anyone in the world what to do and what not to do. Just like the EU, it doesn’t make sense for China to trade with other countries based on U.S. dollar.

As the world’s biggest economy, the Chinese has long realized how dumb it is to do business using the dollar, instead of their own currency – Yuan or Renminbi. The U.S.-North Korea conflict is a classic example how China can be arm-twisted to fix a problem started by the U.S. But soon, that could change and the U.S. domination may be a thing of the past.

Not only China is the world’s biggest economy today, they are also the world’s largest consumer of crude oil. As the Republicans and Democrats are doing a fabulous job destroying their own nation, China is working on a plan to “force”Saudi Arabia to trade oil in Yuan, instead of the traditional U.S. dollar.

kek

Carl Weinberg, chief economist and managing director at High Frequency Economics, said Beijing stands to become the most dominant global player in oil demand since China usurped the U.S. as the “biggest oil importer on the planet.” He said – “I believe that Yuan pricing of oil is coming and as soon as the Saudis move to accept it, then the rest of the oil market will move along with them.”

Is this a wishful thinking, considering 80% of world trades are being conducted using U.S. dollar? Not at all, if one can see how many enemies the U.S., and Donald Trump for that matter, has made over the decades. In April, China and Russia has started the ball-rolling in killing the U.S. dollar when both powerful nations agreed to trade oil in a non-dollar environment.

With trade volume of US$59.5 billion in 2016, China’s ICBC (Industrial and Commercial Bank of China) has opened a clearing bank in Russia for trade settlements on business involvement – including electricity, mining, chemical, oil and gas, telecommunication, retail, machinery and metallurgy sector in Russia.

But Trump got a phone call.

With more countries, such as Iran and Venezuela, being added to the list of America’s foreign enemies, those nations who have been suffering at the hands of U.S. financial and trade sanctions will be happy participants in the Chinese scheme and could provide critical mass. Now, China is targeting Saudi Arabia, the leader of OPEC cartel.

Since a 1974 agreement between U.S. President Richard Nixon and Saudi King Faisal, Saudi Arabia has accepted payments for nearly all of its oil exports in dollars. And King Salman uses this excuse in order not to offend the U.S. when trades with the Chinese. Beijing, however, isn’t impressed that they need to pay using their rival’s currency.

To pressure Saudi, China has been purchasing less and less oil from the Middle Eastern kingdom. It doesn’t help Saudi’s bargaining chips that crude oil prices remain stubbornly low. Mr. Weinberg said – “Saudi Arabia has to pay attention to this because even as much as one or two years from now, Chinese demand will dwarf U.S. demand.

America should be worried about China’s plan to crown their own currency – “de-dollarization” – because the demand for the U.S. dollar would be between US$600-US$800 billion less, when oil trade is moved out of dollars to Yuan. Not comfortable with the not-so-glorious Yuan / Renminbi currency? No problem, because the Chinese has another currency on the offering – “GOLD.”

It was a clever plan because not only China is openly challenging the U.S. imperialism, the latest move by the Chinese will allow oil exporting countries such as Iran and Russia to bypass U.S. sanctions by trading in Yuan instead of U.S. dollars. To make the Yuan denominated contracts more appealing, China is making the Yuan fully convertible to gold on the Shanghai and Hong Kong exchanges.

Fully.

I bet that gold isn’t faked.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/chinas-latest-export-boom-fake-gold-coins/
This is what they’ve been planning with the real ones.

Yuan-backed oil and gold futures, when fully implemented, mean that users can be paid in physical glittering gold. Already, Russia’s biggest bank Sberbank has announced in July that its Swiss subsidiary had begun trading physical gold on the Shanghai Gold Exchange. While “petro-yuan” isn’t as attractive as “petro-dollar”, the “petro-yuan with gold” could definitely be a game changer.

Ya think?

Chinese character: “You cannot reason with these kinds of people,” Wang said. “They think they can do anything with their money.”

“Living in China, where the rule-of-law doesn’t exist, means everyone has to look out for their own interest. It also means people have little or no respect for laws.”

Yes, have fun trading with them!

“Consistent with our views, the broad rebound in global growth in 2017 left the dollar weaker against much of the G10,” Waldman says.

“Going forward, as the global recovery explores its “room to grow”, the dollar should continue to depreciate,” the strategist adds, before citing a number of factors that lend additional support to his bearish Dollar view.

“This has led to the biggest deterioration in the US net international asset position vis a vis where it should be based on the accumulation of current account deficits,” says Waldman.

Another factor, less directly connected to Waldman’s topic but still relevant to the greenback’s trajectory, is global central bank buying of US Dollars.

It is disproportionately represented in central bank currency holdings, particularly as America’s share of the global economy is in long-term decline, given the rise of the emerging world.

‘You should consider our feelings’: for Chinese students the state is an extension of family

Collectivists. Worse than SJWs.

The recently released Chinese student’s recording of the argument he has with his teacher about using the word “Taiwan” illustrates how issues of sovereignty and territoriality can be very emotional for Chinese students.

Censorship, they crave it.

In the video, the Chinese student says, in a calm voice: “You have to consider all the students … Chinese students are one third of this classroom. You make us feel uncomfortable.” He goes on to argue, “You have to show your respect.” The discussion becomes somewhat unclear, but it sounds like the student then says, “It really makes us feel terrible.”

Aaaand then the threats. Naturally the alt right is too chickenshit to call out the Chinese when they pull this BS.

The mantra of “hurting the feelings of the Chinese people” is not new. This emotionally charged phrase is used regularly in the Chinese press, with varying degrees of vitriol

Why are terrorist attacks so shocking to Westerners?

From the immigrants, specifically.

http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Guest_right

I had to pick something you’ d actually read.

IRL section

It has been argued that in the Book of Genesis, the violation of hospitality is what truly made Sodom and Gomorrah considered to be wicked, resulting in God condemning everyone in the cities to die. In the narrative, God decides to destroy the cities but Abraham implores him to have mercy and spare the cities if even ten righteous people could be found there. God therefore sent two angels disguised as men to Sodom, who were refused hospitality by all until they encounter Abraham’s nephew Lot, who had recently moved to Sodom with his family. Lot welcomes the two as guests into his home, and eats with them at his table. A crowd of men from the city later gathers outside of Lot’s home and demands that he send the two strangers out of his house, “so that we might know them” (have sex with them). Lot is so horrified at their intentions that he even offers to let the crowd of men voluntarily have sex with his own virgin daughters rather than allow the two men who are his guests to be harmed.

That’s how serious it was.

The crowd refuses but the angels then reveal their true forms, strike the crowd blind, and warn Lot that he and his family must leave the city at once. Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed at dawn by God raining down fire and brimstone from the heavens.

Refugees welcome?

SJWs do not protect them maternally, but based on hospitality.
Cut that bond and obligation, the defense is severed.

Going back to the last time this happened, why were we kind to the Jews before the end of WW2? Same reason. It’s the exact same reason.

Why are the Greeks such pushovers?

Many subsequent generations interpreted the story of Sodom and Gomorrah to be a condemnation of homosexual sex acts (to the point that “sodomy” became a common term for homosexual sex acts), but modern biblical scholars have pointed out that the inhabitants of Sodom are never explicitly condemned for engaging in homosexual sex. Rather, the crowd of men gathered outside Lot’s house did not horrify him simply because they wanted to engage in homosexual sex, but because they wanted to rape and harm guests within his own home, whom he had formally extended his protection over as part of guest right.

While other books of the bible (i.e. Leviticus) condemn homosexuality, the violation of the laws of hospitality is considered to be an infinitely worse transgression. The Midrash contains numerous commentaries and stories about the villainies of the Sodomites, not particularly focusing on homosexual sex but on their overall cruelty, including accounts of them horribly killing those who showed mercy to the poor.

This also explains the Celtic hesitance here to punish the violators.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospitality#Celtic_cultures

Celtic societies also valued the concept of hospitality, especially in terms of protection. A host who granted a person’s request for refuge was expected not only to provide food and shelter for his/her guest, but to make sure they did not come to harm while under their care.

Except we granted them nothing, other immigrants in the system decided, and refuge is temporary.

reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/2g87dd/was_there_an_equivalent_in_medieval_times_to/

Likewise, guests were to not abuse a host’s hospitality, but to behave honorably and appreciatively. There are many ancient Greek stories that hinge on violations of xenia. That is, in western culture today, it’s considered bad manners to treat your guest or host rudely, but it was a much more significant violation of the social code to behave in such a way in Ancient Greece. Actually, the same can be said in the Old Testament. 

Ancient etiquette, national honour.

Given the outcome of Sodom, am I concerned about mass immigration?

Not particularly, although I probably should move.

Examples: if you’ve read The Odyssey, you’ll see a huge component of the story is the Suitors living in Odysseus’s house, and taking advantage of his hospitality.

Tick tock.

about Lot

 (This passage is, in my opinion, meant humorously, but that element has been lost in time and in the desire of some to take the Bible literally).

Take my daughters!

Nothing is sacred.

 Ultimately, despite my love of GRRM and his work, it’s almost a sign of laziness to identify this as #basedonhistory. It’s not. It’s pirated from history and redressed as Ren’Fayre-bleak. The world relies so heavily on the audiences expectations how a ‘feudal society’ operates that it gets away with never having to explain anything at all.

Exactly, he doesn’t get the mind. He only writes bland, vacant nihilism – the angsty teen edition and the pomo Boomer who fucks and drinks and is really funny to himself/happy only when bitter and drunk.

Guest rights and rituals of hospitality existed across not only medieval Europe but across recorded time in history. Whether this is greeting an incomer by extending a hand in ‘friendship’ (or simply to show you’re not holding a weapon) to offering tea and biscuits to demonstrate to your daughter-in-law that you’re not going to bite her head off for daring to cross the threshold.

This could be considered our cardinal value as a race, the broader umbrella, white kind.

Essentially, the rapefugees claim sanctuary then desecrate any form of right we gave them.
The term sexual terrorism applies, they violate beyond the physical to mock our culture.

This seminar places Anglo-Saxon (c.600-1100) legal treatments of refuge in the context of a broader web of ideas, looking at the problems that hospitality could raise by giving potentially threatening outsiders protection without simultaneously integrating them into local legal networks, and the various ways we find laws trying to address these problems without denying people’s right to protect their guests in principle.

Politeness is the pleasant parent of PC.

First, political correctness is a stern, fierce movement which is completely sane and sets out deliberately to stop us from saying – and thinking – various things. It is not a joke, nor is it out of control. It is deliberate, purposeful and serious. Those who enforce it plan to change the world and they will succeed for as long as we treat PC as a laugh, or as some sort of batty bureaucratic mix-up which will go away in the end.

Cultural Marxism would intersect here.

…We also need to realise that it has one very powerful weapon. It poses as the friend of good manners. It claims that it is the only force that can stop people being rude, dismissive or unpleasant to racial minorities or homosexuals. It pretends that it is the only movement that is interested in improving the lives of women

They want to disinherit us from our culture by handing it over to guests who want to water it down. We can’t move away but we try.

http://charltonteaching.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/why-is-totalitarianism-demanded-by.html

Totalitarianism is the natural end-point for modern, mainstream secular Leftism; and now that ‘everybody’ in The West is on the Left and primarily secular (including self-identified ‘right wingers’ and ‘Christians’) – ‘everybody’ is united in demanding totalitarian thought control.

In suppressing dissenting voices, it is their own thoughts that crave to be controlled. When life is understood as nothing but subjective feelings, then the idea is for our-selves to be manipulated into having the best feelings: we want to be convinced by soothing propaganda, we want a pleasing alternative reality…

Hence my contempt for the signalling right, the fakers.
They are blue pill as the rest. Cowards scurrying to hide badfeels.

Any time someone gives me shit for valuing freedom and being gobby about it As A Woman, I can’t help but wonder how fundamentally illiterate they are.

We only need defend ourselves when our men fail us.

Or is the fairer sex supposed to sit on our arses and pretend to agree with the rapists and their defenders? Isn’t that then a betrayal? A morally strong woman is not a threat to a man with strength to match. Our job is virtue and keeping virtues clear in the public mind (to chastise, from the verb chaste) and defend virtue (child-rearing).

http://thebackbencher.co.uk/political-correctness-is-the-death-knell-of-free-speech/

If only we had a word.

Yes, attacking our children, state, monarchs and way of life are affronts.
It flies in the face of Nurture dogma.
It suggests the better we treat them, the more they hate us.
Irrespective, it is most repugnant to the high trust groups, that survived the Ice Age with tribal bonds (read A Troublesome Inheritance). You want civic nationalism? You ‘integrate’ and ‘assimilate.’ This doesn’t appear possible. It never was. We’re noticing too early.
The pathologically altruistic Whites are still reeling from disbelief, mind boggled, and writing these off as random madness, strange coincidence, than deliberate treason and violation of our sacred, tolerant hospitality.

The consequences for misjudging intent would be too severe, because we would violate it ourselves.

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/category/pathological-altruism-among-whites/

There isn’t something wrong with us. We didn’t evolve for this situation. We evolved for ingroup preference. Multiculturalism was deliberately planned to exterminate us. To ‘kill us with (our own) kindness’.

Look at the slogans. Hope, not Hate?

Hope for what? Love, not hate? Where is the love indeed, Black Eyed Peas?

The bleached 20th Century American vision of Christianity, do nothing.

Push this button.

Keep pushing.

…They’ll have nothing.

Kindness of the Whites based on sanctuary is the glue of the anti-West, the anti-white.
Ah, but paleface, they’ll say, sanctuary can only be extended to those within the same religion.
They will claim they were never our guest, never accepted hospitality, but soldiers, and can therefore kill us with impunity. Do whatever they want, they even have a religious instruction manual.

We’re pagans, racially. They can kill pagans.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sword_Verse

http://www.answering-islam.org/Silas/pagansources.htm

Ironically, they are pagans worshiping the Kaba stone.

We gave these people life itself, through foreign aid, charities keeping their governments afloat, a home here… and they do this. The Saxon is beginning to hate – the ungrateful guest.

Consider how prosperous we’d be, if we’d left them all alone and never imposed our charity.

The scientific term is compassion fatigue, Stefan.

Amygdala and the fractured ego of the left

http://www.socialmatter.net/2016/04/25/the-left-the-collapsing-star/

My prediction: you’re going to see a much more blatant anti-white/male/straight propaganda as time goes on. This must take place, in order to keep the left from collapsing.

I think we chalk that one up as confirmed.

One way to stop the left is to divert attention away from an ambiguous threat from abroad and instead shift the focus to the left’s different faction of activists. The narrative to fragment the left could work as such: the power that you want to fix your oppression is finite, and not only is it finite but all the other activists are vying for a bigger slice of that power. If you don’t take it, they will take it from you. If you want to end your oppression, then you need to secure it from the others, who, if they had it, wouldn’t even throw you a bone. They’re privileged after all. They can’t see your oppression.

So Anonymous Conservative’s fine work on the amygdala.

You remind them they are still in natural, biological competition with one another, their survival goals are opposed and the stack screws them over, personally. The priors were temporarily ignored – i.e. when this is over, who will run things, black men or white lesbians?

They have NOTHING.

Each writes their own personal utopia.

You just gotta prod in the right direction, remember most of these people are unstable – on meds. Still unstable.

Rentseeking eventually runs out of a rich daddy figure.

It isn’t one homogeneous blob. It’s going to tumble eventually.
Stop giving it an external target to shoot at and pool its resources. They adored that Charlottesville march, it was the first thing they had to talk about in decades and it galvanized them post-Trump. You made them stronger.
This is why many of us agreed to stop engaging with them, even online – shortly before they went stir-crazy from lack of input. Their own anger short-circuits and blows on the nearest enemy.

They already hate each other, they just hated us more. We disappear from the picture, at least partially from their view and temporarily, they must start getting their outrage relief at one another’s expense.

Holier than Thou tosspots.

Change your hat, get a new coat and concern troll. How hard is that?
Remind them of the danger different factions pose. Hey, who do you think made TERFs a thing?

Start with the biggest demographic ally, usually the vapid white women, because obviously they have privilege and must pay a special fee to the Church. Being too happy and secure is a sin. Begin introducing the fellow whites to alternate explanations. Small fry. Allow to simmer.

In one: Block off the low IQ from the high IQ and wait.

These are not smart people. Stop letting them win.
They don’t even believe in IQ so this is a cinch.

You wanna feel oppressed? You already are, so shhh. Patience is required.
The goal is to allow the neutrals in their life, to see what’s in store for them. You don’t want them to have a private meltdown at an internet “Nazi” – you want them to call their boss a Nazi.

We want to pump up the rookie numbers of Pride. Normal people have a negative reaction to pride as an emotion.

May I humbly suggest anti-white pride?

South-East Asian and African countries saw the lowest levels of inward migration, with China, Vietnam and Cuba having the lowest numbers. These had rates of lower than 15 immigrants per 10,000 people.

It’s like a plague of locusts at this point. Show me a rich place the Chinese haven’t tried to push in for gibs.

It’s right there, under your nose.

According to the map, we can see that:

  • The population of China is equivalent to the population of North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and all of Western Europe — combined.
  • The population of China is equivalent to the combined population of the former Soviet Union, plus Pakistan, Afghanistan, Finland, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, and Hungary. Oh, and all of Southeast Asia, Japan, and both Koreas.
  • The population of China is equivalent to the population of Africa, the Balkans, and the Middle East put together. 
  • The population of China is equivalent to that of the world’s second most populous country, India, plus that of Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh.

The Indigenous People’s Front

Thank you, as an Indigenous Person in my native homeland.

It’s nice to see you dropped the racist falsehood of Magic Dirt.
And the lie of warmongering ethnicity, to embrace righteous nationalism.

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/indigenous

The right-wing after all, has always striven to represent the voices of the the indigenous and native over the colonialist and oppressive.

One question remains

The Indigenous People’s Front

OR

The Front of Indigenous Peoples.

This is important.

But Milo wanted to be an e-celeb

https://www.buzzfeed.com/josephbernstein/heres-how-breitbart-and-milo-smuggled-white-nationalism

And he infiltrated the Alt Right to go on and claim he was its spokesman.

He claimed to speak for it after initially claiming only to cover it.

Why? He could smell some coin to be made, obviously. Same with Peterson, but in his case it’s mostly harmless. That guy wants to profit off the scientism bro crowd who don’t understand his patronizing, facile explanations and retire.

The people fueling it weren’t actually Alt Right for the most part, otherwise they wouldn’t try and rebrand and pull it in a gazillion different directions, including the KKK wannabes. I knew he’d get ‘leaked’ accidentally on purpose at some point, you trusted him goys. Most of you aren’t even on your own side, you don’t even know what that is, you’re too busy trying to shout down the original people who got shit done and noped out a while ago.

You’ve accomplished diddly squat for over a year. Feel shame.

I predicted he was the tip (pun intended) of a longer, harder, colder iceberg. Berg. Berg.

Anyone who hates Mozart…. mustn’t think highly of white people who aren’t Mozarts.

Asian brothels in white countries

Little Thailands, like the Muslims, they replicate the exact ‘culture’ they run from and it’s allowed? I don’t see the Alt Right rampaging against these forms of immigration, and not all of them are willing (well, none of them are willing without cash, so technically they’re not consenting to sex, and they work there under threat with a pimp). At least some are slaves. So much for whites being morally better in their own land.

http://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/lifestyle/sex-workers-speak-out-about-the-crackdown-on-illegal-or-noncompliant-brothels/news-story/19d5f564d8768a11de539f98d54c6c1b

Clearly, white men always have moral authority by the magic powers of whiteness?

I guess we should all turn a blind eye to it.

And obviously, Asian women make such superior wives, they never do the dirty things white women do, for example.

Nobody wants to point out slavery is the original immigration.

It sounds weird typing it like that.

Trigger warning: anti-hypocrite, anti-degenerate, PUA scam revealing.

http://unqualified-reservations.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/civil-liberties-and-single-reactionary.html

First of all, a reactionary is a gentleman (or a lady).  A gentleman (or a lady) doesn’t whine.  If he finds himself whining, it will be because his leg has been crushed by a truck and he’s in enormous fucking pain.  It won’t be because some meanie is denying him his universal human right to rule the country, or his 1/10^8 share in that right, or whatever.

For the benefit of new or simple readers: We iz not libertardians.
They’re still statist because they believe the State gives them rights.
Sweet, summer child…

The worst PUA scum types are basically going “those pesky meddling bigot conservatives wanna take away our right to rape drunk chicks!”
Yeah. Except… that was never a right.

Hedonism was never a right. The ancient hedons were never this bad.
It’s barbaric, a stable society cannot encourage it. The PC term is antisocial.

There’s no such thing as a right to sex, you degenerate leftist.
You know it’s bad when you’re more entitled than Big Red.

The Sexual Revolution was the beginning of the end. If you can’t finger that as the source of degeneracy, you are not a conservative.

Last one should be Crusaderism, but they aren’t religious.
