Reclaiming our dignity among corporate culture.
Reclaiming our dignity among corporate culture.
“Whilst poor, unskilled men have certainly lost out in the income stakes, many have received a bonus that matches that of any banker: it is a bonus paid in sex rather than money, and it’s not only women who are footing the bill, it is also hard working men paying their taxes – taxes which are being used to clear up the mess left by men who are not, like themselves, taking responsibility.”
Any ‘man’ calling for the Patriarchy needs to man up and wife up his last slut and settle down to a life of bland domesticity immediately and if he complains, he is just as entitled as the feminists. You can’t Have It All. You have to choose.
No such thing as a social liberal, economic conservative (man). There are parasites off the State (welfare for their bastard spawn, free STD clinics) who want to keep all their own money from paying into it. They have no conscience.
Or, as TRS refers to the likes of them;
PUSSYNERDPUAs (*Pick-Up Artists*), men who keenly-recognize the decay of modern human relationships, yet choose to contribute to the problem.
We never used to have a SMP in the first place. That’s the first problem in a long list. Whatever your opinions of evobio and the ‘natural’ functions of men and women, humans were never meant to be a functionally sterile species.
Enjoying the decline doesn’t screw over other people, yet these sociopaths would have you think otherwise.
You can be certain anyone bragging about how they’re gonna be poolside, isn’t.
About as clear as mud. Thank you.
Where do we go from here, eh? A splintering is probable.
The anarchists/chaotics who said No and want it to burn, the ennui #enjoythedecliners for Maybe where the boulder has rolled too far down and the idealists who think they have the solution, solve for Yes.
Interesting times ahead. Cheers for being honest.
…Cash reserves in the National Insurance Fund have plunged in the past few years and could come up short as soon as next year, forcing the Government to dip into money coming in from general taxation, according to the research.
The Centre for Policy Studies report warns under-45 they face tax hikes and a later retirement age, and under-35s they can expect the state pension to be scrapped altogether….
From the wonderfully titled “The End Should be Nigh“;
Timing aside, with the Fund gone, there would be no justification for HMRC to continue to collect the insurance premium that is NICs.
There is a little good news. A little.
Allow me to draw your attention, dear Reader, to Section 5.4 Fund Exhaustion
…Fund exhaustion, whenever it arises, would be of considerable symbolic significance. It would confirm that even with all the recent cost saving measures (such as sending the SPA into rapid retreat) the forthcoming single-tier State Pension is unsustainable. Either benefits are further watered-down, or Generation Y,  in particular, will face rising taxes. This is unreasonable; Generation Y is already faced with unaffordable housing, college debts to repay, fragmented careers and earnings stagnation, and far thinner occupational pensions (DC, not DB, bar the public sector) than their baby boomer parents. It is perhaps no surprise then that the 25-34 years old age group (i.e. core Generation Y) are the least likely to live in households in the top total wealth band. Conversely, only 4% of individuals aged 55-64 years (i.e. baby boomers), and 4% aged 65 or older, live in households in the lowest total wealth band.
 = Under-35s.
It gets better.
..In extremis, perhaps we should gradually put an end Corporation Tax altogether, replacing it with consumer taxes?…
Let’s see The Guardian Media Group and its readers evade those, with their lifestyle of conspicuous consumption.
In short, fuck Baby Boomers. I cannot stress this enough.
If you’re new and think that’s too far or unfair, see Best Post. In short, I refuse to work my arse off until I drop dead so they can spend half their extended lifespan fucking around and spreading STDs on every continent.
They can’t pull the wool over our eyes for much longer.
They’ll starve anyway, idiots failed to
not abort have enough children, expecting they could sponge off other people’s – creating a ‘tragedy of the commons’ because everyone had the same ‘bright’ idea and children ARE the original pension plan, after all. They work for you when you cannot. We’ll vote to drop their “entitlements” when we realise en masse how they screwed us on every conceivable front.
One of the main roles that the modern state performs is that it at least theoretically backstops all contracts, which makes it easier to do business with strangers and near-strangers. As that critical role becomes more theory and less practice, direct, unmediated trust becomes more critical for getting anything done. This means that it becomes more important to defect your primary loyalty to some combination of your family, ethnic group, religious affiliation, and quite probably gang or local business affiliation. This process is common within all collapsing states and need not be cause for all that much mourning, although it is cause for alarm.
Trust is a scarce resource, probably the scarcest resource in a society becoming increasingly chaotic, and it’s also crucial for constructing anything of consequence. Rather than having that resource provided to you for ‘free’ as an entitlement that comes with your birth certificate, you have to build it for yourself or pay in to an alternative network to gain access to it.
What we should expect to see is a contraction in the above-ground, official society, and a growth in the underground, unofficial society in which the work of actual survival can take place. Attempting to extract resources from the official network will become harder and less consistent, while extracting resources from the occluded networks will become easier and more profitable.
This guy writes from the heart, it’s touching.
It is here we may have some disagreement. whereas I personally think all is lost and that we should “enjoy the decline,” others still hold out hope, thinking Western Civilization can be turned around. But whichever camp you fall into (or hybrid thereof), neither does anything to address or identify the true, singular psychological cause of Real Americans’ grief. Therefore, if we can at least identify the primary cause of our malaise we can at least address it, deal with it, and lift this depression that plagues us. And that problem is:
That you’ll never be able to reach your full potential.
No matter how you look at it, be it psychological, secular, religious, darwinistic, or genetic, humans have always wanted to take this one life they have and make the absolute best of it. They not only want what’s best for them, but they want to achieve some kind of greatness. The problem is that while everybody wants greatness in their lives, not everybody is willing to work for it. And with the replacing of republics with democracies we have put an end to forcing meritocratic behavior on the population, and instead given the power to the masses to legally steal other people’s wealth…..
“The US position as the world’s most indebted nation makes it vulnerable to stock market collapse, currency runs and economic crisis, as well as global currency manipulation.”
“A major pandemic may be the instrument that causes a reverse in the process of globalization as national responses to contain infection will involve significant restrictions on personal mobility and interaction over a lengthy period. Some states may even be destabilized by the effort and resources required to address the situation”
“The declining size of working populations and rising social, health and pension costs in developed countries, financed through taxation, will increase the financial burden on the younger elements of society. Further exacerbation by unaffordable house prices, student debt and unemployment, contrasted with the wealth locked up in older generations, may lead to protests on a wide scale, resulting in instability and social unrest.”
“A large city in a developing region (or a number of large cities in more than one region) may fail before 2035. The effects will be equivalent in character, if not in scale, to state failure, which city failure may, in turn, precipitate.”
“It is likely that unregulated urbanization will result in future adversaries who have highly-developed urban survival and combat skills. They may consequently choose to pursue their objectives and conduct operations in sprawling towns and cities which will already have experienced endemic lawlessness and high levels of violence.”
“Conflict and crises will continue to trigger the displacement of large numbers of people, mainly into proximate regions, which may themselves be at risk of instability. Recent conflicts have also demonstrated the potential for sudden movements of people over longer distances, with the potential for related shocks and knock-on effects. This instability is likely to fuel extremist politics in some societies, possibly based on a beleaguered middle class, which may result in resurgent nationalism and authoritarianism.”
Basically, almost everything I’ve been saying for years is in this paper, more or less.
There’s also a 2010 edition I haven’t read yet.
Have fun with it.
