Link: How likely is a hard landing?

Rather.
“Those who watch closely will notice that even small changes in the laws and rules can have a big impact on how things unfold. A lot of strange almost bizarre theories are floating around concerning our economic future. This means that on occasion it is wise to step back, take a deep breath, then try to sort out what is really happening in the economy.”
Hm.
“Central banks can stack the deck but when it gets too high and begins to fall they may not be able to control the direction or who it will crush. Many of the investments people make are predicated on the idea that if the economy fails we will have a soft-landing, or if it does crash the result will not be fatal.”

If you’re stupid, yeah. We have socialist schools so we hate the markets and know they’re always doomed to crash. It’s the one useful thing we’re taught. We had to discuss hyperinflation and the crash of ’29 at length.

“The idea the economy will simply be able to adjust and grow its way out of many problems we have tried so hard to ignore and not just muddle along but to thrive defies what history has taught us. It is based on a view of history that often overlooks the many who have “lost it all” in prior periods of economic chaos.”

He speaks like they don’t deserve to burn.
You play with fire.
Worst, you play with someone else’s fire.
Someone’s retirement fire.
A nation’s fire.
I’m sure there’s a myth about this somewhere. The punishment was eternal.

“Is the typical Apple user so self-centered that they just don’t care, or do they lust for the product so much that they bury and ignore their social conscience? These consumers are even willing to pay higher prices to lock themselves into a closed system tightly controlled by Apple.”
I know a man who uses an iPhone and has done public work against child slavery. You might have seen him on TV at some point. I mention this because trust me, that doesn’t narrow it down. Whatsoever.
It is impossible to hold a conversation on this topic. Otherwise an intelligent fellow, he mumbles and points the finger.
What dystopian relief films like Fight Club miss is how most of the people in the system and in the Matrix are complicit, knowingly and willingly so. They are objectively terrible.
When they complain about losing their ill-gotten savings, remember it’s the honest people who really paid for it in the first place. You can’t consume things you don’t produce, it’s a law of nature. If you are consuming beyond your real production (easy jobs don’t count) then someone else has been slaving away for your luxuries and if you lose them, that is justice, not an injustice. These people remind me of the entitlement of a baby who throws away its rattle (iPhone models) expecting it will always be replaced by a caretaker.

Those who surrender to the idea America is too small to lead based on population numbers do not understand that quality beats quantity hands down. Sadly the spirit of, “I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today” is alive and well in many of those advocating free trade and the expansion of globalism. Whether driven by greed or suffering from being short-sighted, buyers of the many products we import each year should resist giving up their futures so that we can buy the latest fancy flat screen television or set of patio furniture made in China for far less than one made in America. Countries that export goods at slightly below cost in exchange for manufacturing jobs are not stupid – they are predatory and we in America are their prey.”
Globalization isn’t free, it’s treasonous. If you want to develop another country, move there.

They don’t think it’s their future. They, the middles, aren’t the working class. They don’t care. Nobody has to care about them, then? Excellent.

Very good blog.
“civilizations share a sharp curve of decline. Remember this is totally entwined with the economy and everyday life. Indeed, a society’s demise may begin only a decade or two after it reaches its peak population, wealth, and power.”

You had to import the Chinese, didn’t you? The Muslims are nothing to the Red Dragon. Muslims aren’t taking the University places on your prestigious national STEM courses and taking all that knowledge back home with them, to compete against you.

America used to be smarter.

“Uncle Sam introduces Eastern Barbarism to Western civilization.” You don’t see many white women making kitten-crushing videos.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Exclusion_Act
“It was repealed by the Magnuson Act on December 17, 1943.”
“While the Magnuson Act overturned the discriminatory Chinese Exclusion Act, it only allowed a national quota of 105 Chinese immigrants per year, and did not repeal the restrictions on immigration from the other Asian countries. Large scale Chinese immigration did not occur until the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.
I hate it when I know American history better than Americans.
Sure, blame Africa. Like all the abortions of AAs have given them powerful numbers to swarm you.

“They were charged with living together “in a state of adultery or fornication” and both sentenced to two years imprisonment in the state penitentiary in 1882.”
Those were the days.
Would SJWs really be a problem if being a massive slag (male/female) were illegal again?
You want to go back America? Want to be conservative? Are you sure you want these laws back?

Gee, why were marriages so secure, back in the days you could literally throw cheating spouses in prison?
Asians counted under miscegenation law until 1948. Pick your poison.
Even today, although all its constituent sections have long been repealed, Chapter 7 of Title 8 of the United States Code is headed “Exclusion of Chinese.”[36] It is the only chapter of the 15 chapters in Title 8 (Aliens and Nationality) that is completely focused on a specific nationality or ethnic group.”
There’s a reason for that. The first isolated communities that refused to integrate were called Chinatown.
All the much ado about Muslim bigotry has precedent in the American law for the Chinese so yes, they are right in that you can’t allow the Chinese to do something then complain when other Asians pull the same con job.
The Chinese had gangs long before the Muslims too.

“One common thread and sign the end is near is a massive growth in crony capitalism and corruption. Even when the signs of decline may be everywhere that does not guarantee the end is near. As the foundation crumbles away it is not uncommon for those in power to extend their rule by many tricks and changing the rules in order to gain a new lease on life.”

The Hispanic measures will be smaller than predicted given Trump got in.
All current data shows the flood from China is the biggest factor.

“In 2013 the numbers of both Chinese and Indian migrants overtook Mexicans for the first time.”

Don’t import people who breed faster than you (r-selection) because at minimum it depresses wages from labour supply. The politicians prefer to because N bred exactly = voters available.

As it is, the immigration of civic nationalism is specious in reasoning. Why don’t their homeland want them and why don’t they want their homeland? Do we expect undying loyalty their homeland somehow didn’t command? It’s ludicrous.

We end up with a line of Good Time Charlies, instead of brains and soldiers.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.

Here’s hoping.

While I’m going pure NRx mood

A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.

And on the rotting fish head of degeneracy

Nothing is quite so wretchedly corrupt as an aristocracy which has lost its power but kept its wealth and which still has endless leisure to devote to nothing but banal enjoyments. All its great thoughts and passionate energy are things of the past, and nothing but a host of petty, gnawing vices now cling to it like worms to a corpse

Why are terrorist attacks so shocking to Westerners?

From the immigrants, specifically.

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.

 (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).

 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.

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

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.

They want a class war.

They know IQ is real, they’re importing shock troops. Bankers don’t fight their own wars.

Because they aren’t actually natives to the countries they’re controlling.

Supranationalism is the 20th century’s answer to nationalism.

By reducing living standard, there are less expectations on the slave drivers.
Sorry, corporations.

Governments don’t run your country, NGOs do.

Ask yourself – where do all these profits go? Which countries?

Are you allowed to ask?

Mass immigration doesn’t even exist. It’s a neologism.

It meets the criteria for invasion.

Kipling’s The Stranger

THE STRANGER within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk—
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
 But not the soul behind.

The men of my own stock
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wonted to,
They are used to the lies I tell.
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy and sell.

The Stranger within my gates,
 He may be evil or good,
But I cannot tell what powers control—
What reasons sway his mood;
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
Shall repossess his blood.

The men of my own stock,
 Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.

This was my father’s belief
 And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf—
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.
