Everyone dies

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.

Nah.

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.

Gif is completely, totally relevant.

Remember:

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.

#whitestrike?

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?

Boys’ hedonism ruins them as men

I’ve been looking for this.

Yes, there’s even a GDP difference between Christians. They don’t dare mention other religions or the GDP connection to IQ (Protestants socially select the smartest workers to breed with, a “helpmate”, Catholics do not). That’s why there was a British Empire but the Vatican just sits there, pouting. Catholicism killed the Romans.

I think daytime alcohol consumption might factor in though.

Since there’s no such thing as a teenager, why don’t we hold teens responsible for their hobby choices? This is the time of greatest potency in learning and you can cherrypick me all the studies about response time you want, those exist in a vacuum. As in, when compared with any other use of time, including SLEEP, it’s the leisure equivalent of brain rot.

Imagine a little kid trying to convince you that because one sweet won’t kill you, they can live off sweets (this is also what vegans do).

And all around the internet, grown men with the same vices complain.

Why can’t we do anything?

Well, it’s a little like sawing off your feet at the shins then entering a marathon.
It isn’t that the other guy or girl has an advantage, you spoiled yourself.

In a healthy society, the words Spoil Yourself would garner the reaction of Kill Yourself.

You can’t blame adults or society for compulsive addictions like picking up the game controller to escape reality the fifth time that week.

Why not exercise? I don’t mean lifting weights, that’s bad for you. Human joints can’t take it, they’ll be the old geezers in wheelchairs while the rest can still walk. The price of vanity.

I mean gentle, everyday exercise our forefathers got by running errands.

You have every right to be lazy. However, if your brain learns nothing else, one day you won’t be able to turn it off and whose fault is that?

You gonna blame Ubisoft?

Don’t get me started on the damage of porn.

It’s worse than the pop music. And you think that’s repetitive.

If I forced you to watch some independent French film involving a tunnel for hours every week, you’d want to shoot me.

Involve a pair of tits, on the other hand…

and this is without going into the illegality of minors viewing such material, the grooming aspect.

Grooming for what? Well, that’s the wrong question. Grooming what out?

Ambition.

Ask any man who doesn’t really use porn or never did rely on it (the toxic 3D video kind), and men who broke the severe psychological addiction to its release (everything bad for men is scientifically referred to as self soothing) and you’ll find they have more energy. Freud knew this, which begs the question why was free porn allowed?

In an age of nuclear war, the world doesn’t need men. It doesn’t need soldiers. Men who are meek – capable of aggression but also capable of self control – so it beats it out of them. Or it ingeniously makes them beat it out of themselves.

Anything heavy on the endorphins is not good for you.

The scourge has a name but it goes disused – hypofrontality.

Vices do not just get a mention because everyone is a wet blanket. They destroy an individual’s life and that’s fine, they chose it and nobody cares. You wanted to ruin your own life, okay. However, they tend to spread like diseases. The wages of sin we see in modernity – bad fathers  > bad families > bad children > bad economy > bad marriages > bad children > bad fathers.

If men want to lead society, they must first reject vice. The cycle of Empires is clear about this. There is no way around it. That’s the fee, anyone can buy power if they suffer for it first. It’s just that men have the best natural advantage to grab for it – if they don’t androgynise themselves with destructive hobbies first.

The destructive hobby is a 20th century invention.

Think about that.

Prior to that hobbies were either useful, fruitful (including money) or self-creative.

(Exception: the original feminists maintained little girls were wasting themselves on pointless occupations, busywork.)

Hobbies used to be lifestyle choices. There is no such thing as a suicidal lifestyle choice.

The men did well out of that. By keeping teenage men out of the workplace too, it is great for the old men who couldn’t keep up but wastes their time when at least apprenticeships or some part-time work are vital to retain brain functions.

One of the biggest false takeaways from this: let’s make learning fun! – lazy teachers everywhere

You can’t throw ipads at this problem until it goes away.

Learning is not fun. It is a job. It is hard. It is work. That is its value.

LEARNING IS WORK.

Don’t fear work. Don’t lie to them. Don’t make it seem easy. Have faith in them. Stop infantilizing everything.

Let the lazy kids drop out and ruin themselves pre-emptively (13/14 should do it) than hold back the rest. Head Start failed. You can’t make everyone college material.

Asia is pounding us in league tables because they still learn by rote, the Victorian method that worked. It isn’t some patronizing fun task. You take it seriously, it’s a job. Stop measuring little kids like Nordic countries do or they’ll give up too soon. Pay students, a meagre amount, maybe means-tested. Take education seriously or standards seriously fall.

This includes: fire all teachers below a certain IQ. They make terrible role models. There used to be morality requirements of a teacher, to prove character. Bring those back.

No mixed schools. Lower performance, optimize for performance.

Oh, and PE classes are ridiculous. Why should little girls be doing army drills, no wonder they become mannish? It releases testosterone.

Bonus observation:

The American economy will never recover until the video game industry dies. Gamergate happens, a lot of men opt out of new releases and a short time later the economy is doing better. Coincidence, friends?

Stupid “men” learn to consider success in a fake world as real. It’s kinda like status Communism, they get all the shots of adrenaline and endorphins pumping, so why try? So why seek that the hard, real way? The biochemistry makes it feel real already.

Video: Resisting improvement addiction

It’s another excuse to sell you shit you don’t need.

If you’ve seen Fight Club, you’ve got no excuse.

The fact dick supplements still sell, shows men are the dumber sex. I’m sorry, but women don’t buy Viagra, okay? You don’t get to complain about female spending habits because at the end of the day, clothing and shoes have practical value.

Honour and character oppose the flighty, narcissistic temperament fed by constant you can do it! change your life! marketing. The former people do not pay out for life coaches and the like. It’s lifestyle spending,  consumer cult-ure. Most modern people can’t commit to a New Year’s Resolution, let alone another human. One of the biggest reasons given for divorce? They changed. You’re meant to change! Together! In the same direction! I want to bash their heads together.

Have it All is not feminist. It’s Baby Boomer, the beginning of teen propaganda, where the world is and always will be your oyster and your current age 40+ is the new 30. If you don’t have unlimited potential, you might not be cool, and therefore worthless. Think about that. It produces a culture of easily led idiots, who make no permanent changes to your system. They’re too busy thinking about their killer abs or which colour to dye their hair this week.

Vapid people, dying society.

Other times, employers use it to force that little piece of soul you had left, out into their profit margins, beyond your compensation.

You don’t self-improve for other people, it’s right there in the name.

That’s called servitude. If we swallow all the propaganda, we are equal and self-responsible, meaning nobody should be pushing you to change anything, unless you have an arrangement (classically known as employment).

Improvement is used as an excuse, a distraction, GAINS instead of rifle training and making yourself a good husband (material), hair styles and make-up tutorials instead of being beautiful on the inside. The Beautiful Ones were all still rats. What’s worse than a dumb, vain rat?

At its most pathological, it’s an addiction. I’m deadly serious. The hollow, signalling value of gamifying aspects of your life dissociates from living it, being present and active. It starts with a silly thing like bed notches and ends with collecting jars of your own urine like Howard Hughes. Plenty of right-wing people go loopy this way, they won’t like me saying this.

You shouldn’t feel a need to brag about being yourself. #redflag

I guess don’t care, if you really don’t care. I happen to.

The wages of sin hit the middle-aged

There is an old phrase for this.
“The wages of sin”
as in, you pay for your lifestyle.

Nobody else lives with the full consequences.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-38402655

This isn’t It.

Eight in every 10 people aged 40 to 60 in England are overweight, drink too much or get too little exercise, the government body warns.

The shock will be when their healthcare becomes expensive because people like them pushed up the prices (parts of the NHS here now charge) and finally, their kids won’t look after them because they were raised on Independence Dogma and Don’t Trust Anyone Over 30 and not Honour thy parents, which is outdated. One of those abusive care homes pour vous, I see in your future.

Health officials say the “sandwich generation” of people caring for children and ageing parents do not take enough time to look after themselves.

Boomer karma is a-coming.
You fucked the system. The system is fucked and fucking you.
And the cycle is complete.

evil grin lol smile happy

You wanted to change society. No safety net for you. That’s a conservative thing to do.

You wanted it young? You get it while old too.
This is why you don’t meddle with the OS code for society. It used to work, now it will fail in the strangest ways and most unexpected (if you’re dumb) places.

No country for conservative values. It’s like the childless people I keep pointing out who expect a pension. From whose work, exactly? Why should somebody else’s children, somebody else’s investment of time and a LOT of money, work cuck for you? Is that not slavery?

That’s if the state slave pension isn’t totally abolished, that looks increasingly likely as new recruits with massive aged families claim and leech.

Common Filth is right, they don’t have a lifestyle. They have a deathstyle.
What you sow, you shall reap.
You don’t sow anything? Guess you starve.

There’s a 22-stone guy who supposedly didn’t know he was fat.

glaring glare stare really oh come on you can't be serious no fucks given go away dorian gray

These people also wouldn’t see the beauty of epigenetics e.g. you snub the chub BEFORE you reproduce, or it carries through in the germline. How do the gluttons NOT see it causes their obesity?

It’s a biological fact. It’s a direct causal connection.

He says: “You can become very complacent when you are in your forties. You kind of think you’ve done everything and so you can relax and eat pizzas and Chinese in the week.”

No, that’s the lifestyle of a student. A teenager. When they can’t cook.

After cutting down on alcohol, Ms Henderson said she had more time for things, was less stressed, coped with work better and, that family life was more pleasant.

Shouldn’t they have done this two decades ago?

It’s like the stupidity of a deathbed conversion. The damage is still done and present, it doesn’t count. There is no sin eater in a calorie counter.

The wages of sin, no QE to pass the buck.

Shocker as fathers’ bad habits hurt their future babies

Father’s bad habits directly impact child’s genetic quality
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/12/151204135513.htm

“We did not expect to see such important changes in epigenetic information due to environmental pressure,” says Barrès. “Discovering that lifestyle and environmental factors, such as a person’s nutritional state, can shape the information in our gametes and thereby modify the eating behaviour of the next generation is, to my mind, an important find,” he adds.’

Bad lifestyle too
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/07/130701135550.htm

These results suggest that the parents living conditions before conception may directly impact the health of their children.

“We’ve known for a very long time that preventive care among expectant mothers is critical to the health and well-being of their children,” said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of The FASEB Journal. “Now, we’re learning that fathers don’t get a free pass. How they take care of themselves — even before conception — affects the genetic makeup of their children, for better or worse.”

“These results suggest that even before young men make actual decisions about marriage and children, one can distinguish between individuals who are more fatherhood-oriented and those who are less fatherhood-oriented.”

Do I sense a test for r/K? Dare I dream?

I would like to see sexual history included as a poor lifestyle factor. Cue the howls against biological responsibility from the manwhores. Hey, what are you afraid of? Your germline can’t escape your biology, the way you treat your body. Can’t blame that one on women.

toasting raising glass cheers leonardo da vinci congrats well done demons

Why am I mocking them? There are still males who blame the females for any issue with a baby (including miscarriage) as if it’s all on us. It’s a Henry VIII Complex. They refuse to believe it could be them.

Common sense connectome findings vs lifestyle

There is a myth in circulation that creative or intelligent people do more drugs. Usually the false connection is made on the personality trait of openness (which isn’t predictive, since drug use is a choice). It’s a medium correlation more likely from middle class boredom and rebellion.

http://uk.businessinsider.com/human-brain-connectome-results-2015-9

The researchers found that people with more traits the researchers classified as “positive,” like high IQ, tended to have a greater number of brain connections than people with more traits the researchers classified as “negative,” like high drug use.

Direct observation, and they’re loathe to offend anyone.
Like, the scans are right there. You can point to it.

But some say we should be cautious in how we interpret the findings.

I wonder if those people use…..

Read the damn data if you're so bloody educated

It’s like disputing the Type II diabetes and insulin connection.

The more “positive” traits people had, the more brain connections they found, and vice versa.

Eugenic epigenetics confirmed.

But the brain-wiring patterns linked to general intelligence were not the same as those for other kinds of intelligence, such as hand-eye coordination, some researchers noted. [DS: cerebellum, dude] This suggests maybe we should reconsider what IQ tests actually measure, especially since many scientists think it’s not the most useful measure of intelligence. [DS: those many scientists work in another, useless field]

*facepalming in the distance*
IQ is only relevant to an academic context. So very relevant (to practical application).
Gardner’s theories (multiple intelligences) have grounds, yes. Moving on.

Interestingly, people who had recently used marijuana tended to be on the more negative end of the brain connectivity spectrum, the researchers said.

NO SHIT award of the year.
First prize is a Sherlock pipe.

But the jury’s still out on how marijuana affects the brain.

what wut wtf shock surprise slow turn eh littlefinger pause got
No.

…Scientists still debate exactly what this brain circuitry does, but previous research has linked it to several higher-level brain functions…..

And this is only the beginning of human connectome studies……

Hahaha the HBD people will be pleased.

The Human Connectome Project is now looking at genetic data from people in the study, including many pairs of identical and fraternal twins, to see how genetic and environmental influences are related to brain connectivity.

crying laughter lmao

We’re copying Asia and doing a eugenics study, but we aren’t calling it that? As if it makes a difference?

Meanwhile, other groups are studying the brain connections of aging adults and developing babies.

And they’ll find evidence of all the prejudices that withstood the test of time.
All the poor lifestyle choices, all the terrible parenting and the overall genetic load (inferiority) by demo.

I cannot wait.
Redpill study of the century. 

Let’s see them deny it and become anti-science when the harm principle is clearly violated. Vigorously. Repeatedly. Down the generations, who have no choice. 

n.b. Not to denigrate men, but while they have larger brains on average, prior studies have shown women have better connected ones. Make of that what you will.

Men, don’t spread the depression of modernity

http://alphagameplan.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/delta-man-generations.html

Respect the choices and abilities of your fellow man.

You don’t want kids, fine. Don’t tell your friend who does how awful you think they are, unless he asks of course.

You don’t want a wife, fine. Don’t tell your friend thinking of proposing that his future wife will definitely cheat on him and turn into Lucifer in the divorce courts.

The world isn’t full of sociopaths, social media just makes it seem that way (availability heuristic).

Don’t project the worst of modernity onto individuals. We all have a choice. Respect your fellow men and the paths they travel. A pessimist isn’t a realist.

Cracked accidentally explains active K-types to passive r-types

article 

Best bits;

So here’s the secret, the thing that has been plainly obvious all along: Those people out there who are accomplishing great things and seem to get 50 hours’ worth of work done every day? They’re doing it because they have that gun to their head. An imaginary gun, pressed against their temple all day, every day.

All the Ks in the audience be like

lol laughing rdj tony stark heehee haha

Now go go find the most successful person you know. Talk to them about their average week, and listen closely to what they don’t have. They either don’t have friends, or kids, or hobbies, or they don’t keep up with pop culture, or something that you actually consider very valuable to your own life. Their day is only 24 hours long, just like yours. There is no such thing as adding to it — just sacrificing one thing for another.

r-type reader: “Oh noes! You mean I have to choose?! The world should accommodate me!

I don’t know anyone of merit who considers pop culture that valuable. Most of it is mind-rotting trash.
And your hobbies should be your occupation. As in, you make money doing it. Or gain something. I like to say, make your actions pay rent. (Or dividends, if speaking to another K).
Saying: An inch of time can buy an inch of gold, but an inch of gold cannot buy an inch of time.

The friends and spouse/kid thing remind me of two good articles on the subject of time management. Every successful person has mastered that one skill before any others.
1. RR’s Human Energy is Conserved.
2. Captain Capitalism’s The Economics of Caloric Return.

Back to Cracked;

Otherwise, it’s no different from planning a budget that assumes you’ll have twice as much money as you actually make. If you want to become a different person, part of it is deciding which parts of you need to die.

You mean extra hours won’t sprout out the day cos the Government said so?
I’m not a special snowflake? No superpowers? I am shocked! Shocked and appalled!

But every obese person imagines themselves a decade from now having become thin, every coward imagines they’ll be brave, you get the idea. There’s never a defined plan for how to get from Point A to Point Z, and never an acknowledgment of the unbearable truth…

No mention of opportunity cost. Of course (sign it’s an r-type writer plagiarizing).

Stop. Don’t make be backtrack. If you had the gun to your head, you’d goddamned well find the time. If you can’t make yourself start in the next 24 hours, you wouldn’t do it even if you had 24 lifetimes.

He even mentions their high time preference, without using the verbose name;

Any great long-term project that seems impossible to most people — from building a house to writing a book to becoming an actual ninja — is possible to the people who do them only because they don’t just focus on the end goal. There’s only what they have to do today. Don’t misunderstand me — it’s not that they ignore the goal, it’s that they don’t regard what they do today and what they want to have 10 years from now as separate things. The future isn’t a fanciful wish, it’s just the logical end of a long chain of todays. What they do today and what they want to be long-term are the same thing.

How hard are the K types laughing to realize the r types literally don’t get this?
It’s like they’re fucking five. This r guy thinks no one else has discovered this.

This, right here, is at the heart of every unfulfilled ambition in your life. We use the same word — “want” — to mean two completely different things, and the constant confusion between those definitions is why so many people are disappointed in how their lives turned out.

Wrong. Want refers to intangible desire. Will refers to planned action.
Americans use ‘want’ when they mean ‘will’ because the casual culture punishes the active.

Here’s the ending, icing on Mr. Cupcake;

Now look around you — look at all of the minimum-wage people who “want” to be rich and/or famous, with some vague notion of, I don’t know, being on a reality show some day or getting “discovered” for some talent they didn’t know they had. Now look at all of the MBAs working 100-hour weeks on the trading floor because they “want” to be rich. The difference in the two is night and day, but in many cases the former group doesn’t realize it. They just stay poor while the other group starts shopping for vacation homes.

Or they blow their lottery winnings because they don’t know being rich involves more staying rich than becoming.

And I’m starting to think that the world really is divided between those who have a clear idea of what it means to want something — including the total cost and sacrifices it will take to get it — and those who are just content to leave it as an airy “wouldn’t it be nice” fantasy. The former group hones in on what they want and goes zooming after it like a shark. The latter looks at them, shakes their head and says, “How do they do it?” As if they have a cheat code, or a secret technique.

“What, you’re saying we should all be douchebag stockbrokers working hundred-hour weeks?” No.I’m saying that while some of you are sitting around the coffee shop talking about how you “want” the system to change, that douchebag is accumulating money so he can actually run for congress. Because when he “wants” something, he doesn’t sing a song about it. He prices that shit and makes a down payment. And when that relentless BMW-driving douche has kids, he’ll teach them, too, what it really means to “want” something — to be single-minded, and voracious, and to pursue it to the ends of the Earth. Instilling that lesson goes just as far toward preserving wealth and power in a group as the actual inheritance they’ll leave behind.

That is the paragraph which tells you he, himself is an r-type.
He assumes people who are better than them, must be bad people. Because they couldn’t possibly deserve it, could they? If he can’t win himself, there must be no way to do it fairly, legally, honestly. ~ bunny hamstering.

Are you scared of those people? Are you imagining them as cold-blooded stock brokers and lobbyists and swindlers, the Wolf of Wall Street types who are eating away at the world like a cancer? Well, they scare you because it’s a glimpse at what accomplishing great things actuallycosts. You know Steve Jobs was a fucking psychopath, right? So the next time somebody asks you if you want to be rich, really stop and think about it. Think about what it will take. Think about what kind of person you’ll need to become.

Money doesn’t make you evil. Quit believing in cartoons, you’re a grown man. This is why pop culture is rot.

Here’s the close (he doesn’t know his ABCs);

And that’s the point of all this — I’ve found, as time goes on, that everybody gets what they want. Not what they say they want in order to make themselves look good to others, or what they tell themselves they want so they feel better about the current state of their life. No, I’m talking about what they really want. And to find out what they really want, you don’t need to ask them. You just need to look at what they did today. You want to change, start there.

You mean…. what they deserve???
