A note on growth

The growth of the 19th century was possible because of machines.
The growth of the 20th century was possible thanks to child enslavement (mostly in the Third World). Yes, we went backwards. To this day, most spices, fabrics and other staples are made by slaves. Children make ideal slaves because they have no rights and nobody listens in the legal system, free time and no breeding obligations and they are easy to threaten and punish if they make mistakes. Foreign aid is really about encouraging the breeding of future slaves. If they couldn’t enslave these people, they wouldn’t be interested. It’s a perfect working caste – no power, can’t riot. If you really want to help the Third World, end child labour.
Yes, you’ll pay more for a t-shirt.
However, they won’t be so poor moving to our country is attractive. It’s a win-win.

However, the feminists need someone to make their t-shirts.

So you won’t hear this from them.

But foreign aid is important

“My children, who have gone from me up to the local secondary school, have grey skin, poor teeth, poor hair, poor nails. They are smaller, they are thinner,” she said.

“At sporting events, you see your children in the year group compared to other children in an affluent area and you think: our kids are really small. When you see them with children of the same age who are from an affluent area, they just look tiny.”

What white privilege?

Population, r-selection, food supply and famine

I wanted to throw you some further data that doesn’t quite fit in the UK-specific economic post I’ve planned. It does, however, affect our economy, especially our local (European) food supply and costs. It squeezes our own development by virtue of a see-saw, either they command these resources (our landmass and its fruits) or we do.

Premise: R-selection, to breed beyond the resources of your land, is suicidal in the long-run but also reduces standard of living in the short.

https://population.org.au/articles/2011-09-16/population-growth-damages-standard-living

“Those states with the highest rates of population growth suffered the largest reduction in standard of living”, said Dr John Coulter, Vice President of Sustainable Population Australia commenting on the latest ABS population data released yesterday.”

This could easily be predicted because, as resources are constant and finite, by increasing the demand, there will be less per head, or a lower standard of living. We can also see this in food prices, with extra-European over-population, beyond locally sustainable levels, basic costs go up, primarily the most fundamental cost being foodstuffs themselves.

If you complain about data volume, here is some going back to 1264.
https://ourworldindata.org/food-prices/

Why would food be important in discussions of population? /sarc
You’re sustainable or you’re dead. The system, ecosystem, is efficient and supportive of its lifeforms, or else it fails. There is no wiggle room for error or data concealment.

http://www.worldwatch.org/global-food-prices-continue-rise-0

“As both climate change and population growth continue to increase, there is reason to believe that food commodity prices will be both higher and more volatile in the decades to come.”

We in Britain currently eat from food banks so some Chinese parvenu can eat a roast chicken and feel successful and vote Hammer & Sickle. Where is the social justice outrage? [proof at end]
Petrol has gone down in the same time so no, you can’t blame oil.
To go from this century’s statistics.

In a report from 2012: “Food prices have risen 12% in real terms over the last five years taking us back to 1997 in terms of cost of food relative to other goods.” “In May 2012 the main food issue of concern to respondents was food prices at 63%, an increase from 60% in November 2011.”
Sounds vaguely like hyperinflation. I’m sure that has no political consequences whatsoever.

Caring is not a choice. We’re producing more food than before, but it’s going out, away to greedy nations like China. [see end]

Yes, it affects me.

It affects my people.
“The survey found that 28% of adults skimped on their own food in the last year so that others in their households could eat”
Back to the rest of the world:

“Between 2000 and 2012, the World Bank global food price index increased 104.5 percent, at an average annual rate of 6.5 percent.”

“Food prices will also likely be driven up by population growth, increasing global affluence, stronger linkages between agriculture and energy markets, and natural resource constraints. According to the FAO, although high food prices tend to aggravate poverty, food insecurity, and malnutrition, they also represent an opportunity to catalyze long-term investment in agriculture, which could boost resilience to climate change and augment global food security.”

That is one loud canary, isn’t it?

That growth is not possible, the planet is not infinite, infinite growth is impossible. Soil erosion, for instance, is making it so there is LESS arable land in the world over time and this change appears permanent, caused by over-farming….
Britain figured out its business with an Agricultural Revolution, places like China try to outsource their inability to feed their population (Commies) instead of farming responsibly and denying its population the luxuries they purchase on credit and continue to demand.

Here’s a good article that goes into erosion.
https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2015/nov/26/why-seed-banks-arent-the-only-answer-to-food-security

The technology they need won’t exist, it’s magical what they’d expect of it.

http://www.fao.org/docrep/U3550t/u3550t02.htm

Consider that China is actually land-poor, this fits like a glove.

A country’s ability to feed itself very much depends on three factors: availability of arable land, accessible water and population pressures. The more people there are, especially in poor countries with limited amounts of land and water, the fewer resources there are to meet basic needs. If basic needs cannot be met, development stalls and economies begin to unravel. In some poor countries, attempts to increase food production and consumption are undermined by rapid population growth; migration from rural to urban areas; unequal land distribution; shrinking landholdings; deepening rural poverty; and widespread land degradation. Lower birth rates, along with better management of land and water resources, are necessary to avert chronic food shortages.”

Famine. This dude.

All these natural disasters are written up as Acts of God.

This is what happens when men run everything, it fails from bureaucracy. You need a blend of influences in society to thrive. They’re too busy competing with one another to provide for the future, nurturing is the female ability.

“By formally recognizing women’s pivotal role, governments will be taking a big step toward safeguarding food production”

They won’t do that, they’re dumb enough to think women are only baby machines and the brain is a coincidence.

At current levels, to support these parasites, the world must somehow pull an additional 70% out of its backside.

China is literally taking British food out of the hands of British people.

I’m not making this up. It’s on the official websites. e.g.

“China will become the world’s largest market for imported foods by 2018, predicts the country’s National Bureau of Statistics of China. China is already the largest grocery market in the world with an estimated value of £1 trillion, according to grocery industry researchers IGD. In 2016 UK food and drink exports to China increased by 49% with particularly strong growth in pork, beer and seafood. As a result China entered the UK’s top 10 food and drink export markets for the first time.”

Let’s grow by preferentially selling the food our own people need to foreigners with more cash!

Great plan!


Not more valuable cash, more pieces of paper.

Why didn’t this happen to Japan? It’s an island.

Selling to outsiders only from the surplus would be anti-libertarian, anti-globalist.
Wanting to feed our children is racist.

Update:

Just let the white babies starve in the name of Marx. /s

Here’s what is actually going on:

Britain wants to strengthen its industry but needs foreign buyers in the mean time.

The Russians are simply using China to take down America, then pull a Littlefinger and doublecross them. Go to war against them. What are they gonna do? They have no food and no oil to import it with, it would be the easiest victory in military history. Why do you think the EU is helping China? To lessen their dependence on Russia. Russia is post-Communist and sees all the stupid shit China does, yet encourages it? Please. Communist countries like China always need to be rescued by the capitalist ones… who would rescue them? The people who would be calling in debts nobody could afford to pay? And they have well above a billion people, rescue yourself with your superior IQ.

Relevant fact: Soldiers would need even more food. China is doomed.

You can’t talk about welfare unless

you talk about the welfare or benefits ‘cliff’. It’s also known as the ‘trap’.

https://fee.org/articles/if-you-accept-this-raise-you-fall-off-the-welfare-cliff/

There are plenty of dry economic agreements (how rare!) that this oppresses the poor.
Nobody mentions it. The right want cheap maids they call nannies to feel morally superior and the left, same, but keeping reliable voters on tap and away from economic freedom.

http://aauw-pa.aauw.net/files/2014/09/Poverty-Minimum-Wage-and-the-Cliff-Effect-Op-Ed.doc

It also affects women more, but feminists don’t discuss it because they’re middle-class bitches. They’ll happily hire the foreign nanny than support the one who needs the job and can’t afford to go anywhere else. Immigrants are by default, privileged, because they can be global and professionally mobile. It’s like when working class people see a middle-class woman say how she chose to work after giving birth, expecting a pat on the back. Oh, a choice? Freedom? Must be nice.

That’s why women refuse raises, not Imposter Syndrome!
https://www.wfco.org/pages/content/the-cliff-effect

It’s nothing to do with Britain, it happens in any welfare system not structured to allow the transition back out again.

It operates like a Venus flytrap or Chinese fingertrap.

This has nothing to do with flogging the corpse of Maggy Thatcher (sick and sexist) but nothing to do with the 80s either, it’s a new structural issue.

Nobody wants to address it.

Greens and Lib Dems will talk about the rights of terrorists and bondage classes for kids, but not this.

Video: The Economic Hitmen

Party politics is laughably small-minded.

Remember when I fingered the NGOs as corrupt? Well all that infrastructure they’re building…. it’s basically colonialism.
The ‘cucks’ are working for the NGOs, not their own government, let alone the people paying for it. They are above government but operate like companies… but tax exempt as charities.
If they couldn’t exploit these people or places, they wouldn’t want to do anything there.

Gentility

http://ummutility.umm.maine.edu/necastro/chaucer/translation/ct/07wbt.html

…”But when you speak of such gentility as is descended from ancient wealth–so that you knights should therefore would be gentlemen of breeding–such arrogance is not worth a hen. Look who is always most virtuous, openly and secretly, and most inclines to do what gentle deeds he can; take him for the gentlest man….

For though all their heritage of our ancestors, by reason of which we claim high rank, may descend to us, yet they cannot at all bequeath to any of us their virtuous living, which made them to be called gentle men and to bid us follow to them and do in like manner….

Here you may well see how nobility hangs not from ancient possessions, since people do not always perform its works, as does the fire, according to its nature. For, God knows, one may often see a lord’s son do vicious and shameful deeds; and he who wishes to be esteemed for his gentility because he was born of a noble house and had virtuous and noble ancestors, and yet himselfwill not perform the deeds of gentility nor follow after his gentle ancestor who is dead, he is not gentle, even if he is a duke or an earl; for base and sinful deeds make a commoner. For gentility then would be nothing but renown of your ancestors for their high worthiness, which is something that has nothing to do with you….

“Think how noble was that Tullius Hostilius, as Valerius tells, who rose out of poverty to high nobility. Read Seneca, and Boethius as well; there you shall see expressly that he who does noble deeds is noble. And therefore, dear husband, I conclude in this way: albeit my ancestors were untutored, yet may the high God–and so I hope–grant me grace to live virtuously. Then I am noble, when I begin to live virtuously and to abandon evil….

romans 12:9

Whoever keeps himself content with his poverty, I count as rich, even if he does not have not a shirt! He who covets is a poor creature, for he wishes to have that which is not within his power. But he who has nothing, nor covets things, is rich, albeit you count him as only a serving-lad…

Now you say I am old and foul: then have no fear that you will be a cuckold. For ugliness and age, upon my life, are great wardens over chastity. But nevertheless, since I know your delight, I shall fulfill your appetite….

“Choose,” she said, “one of these two things: to have me foul and old until I die, and to you a true, humble wife, never in all my days displeasing you; or else to have me young and beautiful, and take your chance on how many visits there will be to your house–or perhaps to some other place–which will be for my sake. Now choose yourself which one you will have.”….

Superb.

amused smoking lol haha watching with anticipation

Love. Or, don’t.

Guardian suddenly treats battered working class like people

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/15/brexit-working-class-sick-racist-eu-referendum

Minimizes the immigration thing.

From my research I would argue that the referendum debate within working-class communities is not about immigration, despite the rhetoric.

what wtf wut confused shocked are you seeing this omfg how

We just told you.
Condescending bitch.

When people tell you they have a certain issue, you don’t get to pick a different one.
That’s gaslighting. You don’t really think what you think, you think what I want you to think instead.

The WWC has a lot in common with a battered wife at this point including the financial abuse.

The women worry for their children and their elderly parents

sexism and false, more commonly a male concern as the providers

talking about immigration and being afraid of immigration is about the precarity of being working class

poverty

the correct word is poverty

Where’s the money going to?

Who did you choose over us every time and expected us to be good little voters like an obedient old dog?

Oh, but send record amounts of foreign aid to Africa. That helps.

You people had been treating us like yobs for decades, we know you’re full of it 2 weeks before a vote when the polls show the proles aren’t voting like you told us to. Last week they were calling us all football rioting chavs. We went to private school but we are not stupid.

guardianreadersgrinds

Why would the WWC continue to vote in anything other than their self-interest? Their people bought into the tolerance of Blair and look what happened. Recently, Labour betrayed them with Rotherham, refuse to admit it let alone make amends and Miliband promised that he’d make offending Muslims illegal. Gee, I wonder why we voted against that. Who else wants to go to prison for drawing a cartoon, lads?

Marshmallow Test and middle class assumptions

http://indy100.independent.co.uk/article/theres-a-big-problem-with-one-of-the-most-popular-assumptions-about-the-poor–Z1ggN4SRZNb

Poor people believe all money is like water. See lottery winners who refused to save.

The present reward is guaranteed. Tomorrow the rules might change or someone else might take it.

Common sense is distrustful of rules and authorities like scientists.

Poor children are stressed, measured by vagal tone. I wish there’d been amygdala measures, like size.

Middle class children aren’t normal, they are naive.
