Meaning is personal to each of us. However, a new study published June 15 in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science suggests that some people might be better at finding that meaning than others — and the difference may come down to politics.
According to the study, which compiled survey results from more than 50,000 participants in 16 countries, people who identified as political conservatives were more likely to find meaning and satisfaction in their lives than liberals were.
“Political conservatives tend to be happier than liberals, a finding that has been labeled the ‘happiness gap’ in media reporting,” a team of psychologists from the University of Southern California (USC) wrote in the new paper. “One conservative commentator even described it as ‘niftily self-reinforcing; it depresses liberals.'”
but how many lived?
Every productive person I know is going or has gone Galt. They’ve all reduced their work hours to the minimum, every woman and every man and even kids are half-arsing “homework” that doesn’t count on their grade.
Homework is one of the first lines of this brainwashing.
People who get it can come from all walks of life.
Rows of desks and a manager who pretends to be your friend or replace your parent, it all fits.
Every person who could express their reason is essentially rebelling.
“I’m sick of my work going to people who hate me”.
Who can argue with that?
One example stuck with me, a guy intimated:
Why get that raise if you’ll make less money post-tax to pay for the mosque down the road popping out dependents YOU will be held financially responsible for?
That’s where England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales are right now.
Socialists can’t spend revenue the producers refuse to earn.
They want Cloward-Piven but it also relies on a dragged-out timescale.
This is key.
Communists rely on a smooth transition period of gullible chickens laying eggs to replace themselves.
As predicted in Best Post, strike strike strike strike! The worker’s revolution the Left always claimed to want?
You want to spend on PC bullshit like diversity hiring in a company? We leave and let it fail because the top workers aren’t from Asia. The visa Asians are corporate locusts and when the bonuses and special treatment stop, they go too!*
You can make a lot of money off that one, actually. I won’t explain how.
[search calculation average + national IQ of highest % of workforce…. etc.]
Suddenly, there’s a dearth of creativity in various key industries.
Oh noes, what a pity. The Left seems to be stalling for some reason, as the bottom of the pyramid is increasingly hot air!
Why aren’t the Indian IT workers superior replacements to the evil white man?
Hollywood wouldn’t lie to us, they tell us Asians are always smarter than Europeans.
The fact they still live in their own shit is immaterial.
Betrayal? Well, who betrayed whom first?
Who owns the West? Who founded the West? Who developed the West?
Who is owed by the West? Whose birth right is the Western culture?
Answer these then speak to me of traitors.
*Asians also rely on gossip heavily for career decisions, particularly from HR, gossip central. Buy HR something sugary. Suggest to accounting that remittance might be illegal according to national tax law. Have fun.
They require our co-operation.
They also rely on our information. They’re hardly about to do the grunt work of getting off their fat arses in person.
Countless examples of passive resistance, across the country. Freedom of association is a natural right, whether or not the current Parliament recognises it in statute.
I guess we can take our white privilege elsewhere.
It isn’t like I’ve been planning and building toward this very state for literally years.
But if I had….
Ideally, you want every dunce holding a hot potato by the next stock crash.
Call it, if you will, Operation Wipeout.
Encourage every immigrant to buy as much property, way above any earning potential, as humanly possible.
“You have to get on the property market, look at the gains! You don’t wanna miss out!”
Every bachelor must buy a family home! No! Two! Three! Many! “Just rent them out, lol.”
Property is the world’s largest casino. People won’t bet 500k on black but they’ll buy a shithole in a crappy neighborhood for it. Consider it a wealth transfer back to the rightful owners.
Investing in the future of a foreign country is hilariously stupid.
Ideally, get in on the transaction somehow. Offer them halal, interest-free loans, if you have to!
A spoonful of sugar helps. We need debt addicts who act like crack addicts.
Keep that amygdala nice and weak.
The housing “crash” was actually a blip of the coming one, government was about to cease supporting post-war housing for immigrants. The markets told them no, can’t do that, keep supporting them. They’ll do that now…. until they cannot.
What do indebted immigrants do to avoid consequences? Leave.
What do IQ morons who lucked into a high IQ economy do, when their one gamble fails? Leave.
Who do they sell to, at rock bottom prices? The only people who wanna remain, the natives.
The collective effort of their kind selling off desperately at once to all move home drives prices even lower.
They won’t question your help because they expect white guilt and gibs.
After all, give them what they want, wouldn’t wanna be racist, would we?
So desperate for approval, the Guardianistas. Perfect situation if you sit down and think about. For years.
Do not plug into the poison system, as much as possible. Encourage every Marxist teacher (they have forums) to buy into the stock market, because Soros is our ally. Those silly Brexit racists don’t believe in the EU, invest, rub it in their faces when the Eurozone recovers! Brag to your students that you’re putting your money where your mouth is! Then everyone clapped.
When stocks go, that includes construction companies, hotels, every place that has a vast need for buildings. Like Amazon. Totally scorched earth, business-wise, to develop properly.
Minimise your own dependence while financially skewering your enemies like a kebab shop going out of business.
Age of Economics: Castamere Edition.
Invest in your culture, stop buying Chinese crap especially. Shrink the economy.
Traditionally, insecure investors with money to burn go to housing and stocks. Perfect.
Workers have rights again. If you’re unemployed, you’re still a consumer.
We can do it all now the EU is retreating its corrupt business from our shores and domestic workers are seeing a shift of power, subtle but beginning to grow.
Even I’ve gone quiet, moving things around, helping others IRL to minimise themselves is taking time.
People who want to look in the enemy’s faces and say:
I said, years ago, stop engaging with the Left. Ignore them. This has paid dividends.
Tactical retreat of eyeballs, energy, attention, money. They become more milquetoast the more irrelevant they feel, scrambling for the centrist position, which shifts right.
Now we have the EU’s prime defenders arguing for shades of Brexit.
Every Leftist prediction has failed. Never forget this. Every single one.
The idiots are running out of supply, even fiat. Crunch, crunch, crunch.
Grinding gears slowing to a halt. Excellent. Starve the leeches on our civilization.
As the weather gets colder, literally and fiscally, you can always fuck off home?
Would be a shame if protein supplies became more expensive, forcing gang-supporting ‘shops’ out of business, wouldn’t it?
Would be a shame if all the Welfare Harems buying widescreen TVs found they couldn’t eat them.
White people have the Ice Age genes, we just need the practical reminders of how to prepare for hard times.
Or you can buy another iPhone like the boat people. Your choice.
It’s quiet. Too quiet.
It’s a very old British sense of humour for the situation. Like the Russians starving out…. everyone.
Smart people don’t fear a leveling based on the intelligence of self-reliance.
Workers want a recession. The goods are cheaper than labour wages can drop.
The boss has to sell his yacht, boo sodding hoo.
Also, the West has purchasing power to continue the supply of goods, outcompeting third world buyers e.g. for food, which we largely produce, still.
Now, some (wet blankets) have suggested this may be, kinda, financial sorta ‘terrorism’ but we’ve looked it up in depth and humouring idiots with delusions of grandeur is just business, it isn’t personal. They want status, they’re free and have full agency as intelligent human beings not to stake their entire future, and that of their extended family nest, in the white homelands on unicorns, rainbows and fluffy clouds of truly ironic anti-white supremacy.
Nobody is forcing them, it’s completely kosher. According to hypothetical lawyers.
And we’re all LARPing anyway here, aren’t we?
The inequality thing isn’t wrong.
The causes attributed are.
Class is a major HBD factor.
TALK ABOUT IT.
For example, show me a rich Silicon Valley douchebag who didn’t have a rich parent. Who didn’t go to a good school and various special camps. Is it really merit and American spirit if they moved up just one class from the middle? Based on investments and decisions their parents made?
And imagine peaking in life before you’re thirty. That’s going to be painful.
Four or five (!) decades of anti-climax.
We need an update.
Take the data, Trump. Publish it. Far and wide.
The State already controls how you reproduce. It takes money from the barren to pay for another’s child.
Taking child support from a non-parent is illegal….?
The biggest Dem weapon is the welfare cliff.
Compare his analysis of Harry Potter to Peterson’s and tell me Peterson is a genius.
Well then, this man is a polymath. Did Peterson compose an opera?
a repost, but a worthy one
The nerd’s sense of measuring everything here is a big handicap when it comes to assessing life meaningfulness. Our instincts for impact evolved in a world where only a few dozen people had real agency in your world; you were part of what we’d perceive as a small ingroup by default, and it wouldn’t be too crazy to think you could be one of the most respected and influential people in the known world…
It’s difficult to believe in the sanctity of your own life without a soul.
I am so surprised, guys.
