YouTube Recording of a Recent Standup Set by Louis CK: Dec 31, 2018

December 31, 2018 1 comment

Here is the long version of Louis CK’s new standup comedy set.. you know, the one in which he said something about the scammers who use the untimely death of their schoolmates to enhance their careers. Two warnings: first, the full recording is almost 50 minutes. Second, download it because I am not sure how long it will stay up on YouTube.

The allegedly ‘controversial’ part starts at around 23:00 minutes into the set.

Life Expectancy in USA has Always Been about Class: Dec 29, 2018

December 29, 2018 3 comments

About a year ago, I wrote a post which used public health data from CDC to show that differences in average life-expectancy between whites and blacks in USA were due to intentional public policy rather than any intrinsic genetic differences. In case you are wondering, I wrote the original post to expose the deliberate sophistry of so-called “public intellectuals” in USA who have long claimed that the differences in average life-expectancy between the two groups are based in “genetics” rather than intentional racist public policy. To quickly summarize it, the average life-expectancy for blacks in many affluent coastal states are higher than those of whites who live in poorer (and racist) southern states. In it, I also mentioned that the differences in life-expectancy by race in affluent and mostly coastal states was much smaller than those in the south or midwest.

Well.. it looks there is now a further piece of proof for this theory. According to the latest public-health statistics from Massachusetts, the average life-expectancy of black women and men now exceeds that of their white counterparts. And let us be clear about something else, Massachusetts is already at, or near the top, as far as average life-expectancy among states is concerned. Of course, there is not shortage of racist idiots and certain “public intellectuals” who will spend a lot of time trying to argue that blacks in that state are somehow “genetically different” from those in other states. As some of you might know, the average life-expectancy for blacks in UK (mostly Caribbean descent) crossed their income-matched white counterparts about two decades ago.

The statistics from Massachusetts does however show a very strong and unmistakable correlation between life expectancy and social class. In fact, it is far stronger than what you see in most european countries. Note that death rate for people from the lower social classes is many times higher than those from the upper classes. While part of the difference is due to deaths by Opioid overdose (itself a form of death by despair), it is clear that there are many other factors at work- from higher risk of alcoholism, accidents and delayed treatment of medical conditions. I cannot resist pointing out that for many decades, most whites in USA firmly believed that they would never end up in the same social class as blacks because they were somehow magically “superior” yada yada. Well.. turns out that was not the case- to put it mildly.

Why Escorts are Always a Better Deal than Relationships or Marriage: 5

December 27, 2018 23 comments

In the previous post of this series, I wrote about how the combination of magical thinking and racism prevalent among women (especially in North America) makes it essentially pointless for someone like me to even consider pursuing anything approaching a “normal” relationship with them. After a certain point, I simply stopped seeing them as human beings because there is no point in treating somebody better than how you are treated by them. In my opinion, only suckers keep treating others better than they themselves are treated. And let me be clear.. this applies regardless of whether the other party is family, friends, roommates, co-workers, boss, employer or government. You have no obligation to be the ‘better’ person as it will lead to exploitation.

Some of you might see this position as inhumane, and there is some truth to that view since too many people still feel a need to be a ‘better’ person or whatever. A frequent commentator on this blog, stonerwithaboner, has wondered on numerous occasions whether I care about what escorts think about me. While I have sorta answered that, let me repeat- once you stop seeing them as human beings, their opinion about you carries as much weight as that of a neighbors dog or cat. You know that it exists, but you do not dwell on it or care about improving it. I should, however, point out that my opinion about escorts is significantly better than so-called “real” women and have written many posts about why the former are a better deal than the later.

And why not.. you know what you are getting, terms of service are clear, racism is functionally non-existent, there is not much bait-and-switch and you can purchase the service of your choice from the server of your choice. More importantly, you can switch service providers according to your needs and desires and there are no hidden fees and ‘gotcha’ clauses in the exchange. If all this sounds a bit too cold-blooded, let me ask you a short series of questions starting with- how exactly is a relationship or marriage in west different from using the services of escorts? Think about it a bit, would your girlfriend or wife stay if you were chronically unemployed or became poor? And in the off-chance that she did, would the quality of the relationshit remain the same?

My point is that all of these so-called “relationships” are completely subservient to the financial viability of the arrangement. Some of you might say that this is not completely true since guys with charisma, charm, looks, fame can get tons of free pussy even if they have little money. In fact, I have written a post about how the low-level drug dealer or guy in local music group will get far more pussy than a doctor or lawyer. Here is a newsflash.. I (and majority of you) do not have oodles of charisma, charm, looks and fame. Nor should it necessary to be the proverbial rockstar to get laid with non-ugly women. Moreover, it has been quite easy for the average guy to get laid with the average girl for the vast majority of human history. That is also why most human beings tend to look.. well.. average and mediocre.

So what has changed in the past few decades, especially the last two? This is where I have to go into an area which, at first sight, might not appear to have a connection with sex or relationships. Have you ever considered that the behavior of women, especially over the past 50 years, can be modeled quite well by capitalism- or more precisely, belief in that ideology. Think about it.. women (especially in western countries) are always looking for the bigger better deal, using laws to get large payouts and generally looking at relationships in the same way a careerist looks at jobs. More importantly, a lot of the relationshit stuff is almost exclusively for public display and monetization. Did I mention the part about how they gauge relationshits by proxy measures not unlike how dumbfuck MBAs look at management.

There is one more important reason to believe that this change has much to with internalization of a capitalist belief system. Look at the patterns of fertility, changes in age of giving birth and how women increasingly look at the children (if they have any) as assets which need to optimized for the highest possible returns on investment. Long story short, they have internalized the belief system of capitalism to the point where they are all behaving like little capitalist who are trying to maximize their profit according to proxy measurements which have little to no connection with reality. And here is the thing.. pointing out this fact is unlikely to have any effect on their behavior or thought process. Your best option, then, is to treat them like you are being treated

Are you now starting to see why my reasons for preferring escorts over “real” women sound a lot like somebody trying to get best package deal for some service rather than anything with any emotional connection? In case you did not, let me restate the obvious- there is no real emotional connection in the vast majority of relationshits and marriages. Note that this is not the same as relationships having their ups and downs. We are talking about the complete lack of something as opposed to temporal changes in the magnitude of that thing. What you think is “real” is just the facade of emotion, connection, loyalty etc. And this is also why you will often hear on blogs that women from other parts of the world (even reasonably rich countries) are not as screwed up as those in the anglosphere. The key words in that sentence is “not as screwed up as”.

In the next part of this series, I will (belatedly) go through specific experiences during the 2005-2009 timespan which finally made me decide to choose the escort-only path.

Trump Presidency Has Made Hollywood Scriptwriters Look Uncreative

December 24, 2018 8 comments

In a previous post, I wrote about my theories on the reasons why Trump is publicly despised by entertainment “celebrities” after he ran for the presidency and won in 2016. And this got me thinking.. how does Trump compare to some of the more “colorful” and unconventional political characters depicted in movies and on TV. As some of you may know, there have been more than a few unflattering depictions of political figures in film and TV over the years. For example, the persona of the titular character in Bob Roberts (1992) has noticeable similarities to Trump. Then again, the main character in that movie was running for a senate seat and not the presidency.

Bulworth (1998) is another movie in which the central character has some resemble to the Trump persona– though most policies advocated by him in it are closer to those of Bernie Sanders. In case you are interested, here is another list of movie which have a main character with some sort of resemblance to the Trump persona– though only 3-4 of them are close enough. My point is that even the normally outrageous imagination of Hollywood scriptwriters could not come up with anything close to the reality of Trump. If you do not believe me, just read a small selection of his official Tweets from the past eight days. Here is part one of the screenshots..

Still not satisfied.. here is part two.

Explanation for the Intense Hatred of Trump by ‘Hollywood’ Celebrities

December 23, 2018 13 comments

The election of Trump on November 8, 2016 has had many interesting and peculiar effects on the state of public and private discourse in this country. For example, we have recently seen multiple prominent democrats and their surrogates loudly proclaim that Bush43 was not as big a disaster as Trumpdespite the incredibly bad track record of the former. As some of you might be aware, there is an ongoing effort to rehabilitate the public image and legacy of Bush43 and his recently deceased father (Bush41). In case you require help remembering how incredibly disastrous the Bush43 presidency really was, let me remind you it began with a stolen presidential election, went through 9/11 and its aftermath, a failed invasion and occupation of Iraq, the incredibly poor response to aftermath of hurricane Katrina and ended with the Global Financial Crisis of 2008.

And this brings me to an interesting observation about the difference in reaction of Hollywood and entertainment “celebrities” to the presidencies of Bush43 and Trump45. Why did a president as disastrous such as Bush43 never get anywhere near level of hate as that ineffectual orange-haired buffoon is getting right now? Think about it.. Bush43 presided over many monumental fuckups which were unusually expensive in terms of human lives and money, not to mention the other irreversible representational hits to this country. In my opinion, he makes Trump45 look positively benign by comparison. Yet, we never saw anything close to the continual attempts by entertainment “celebrities” to ‘take down’, ‘destroy’, trash-talk or fixate on Trump45 during the two terms of Bush43. My question is.. why not?

Some of you might believe that this has something to do with social media and the internet being far more ubiquitous in 2018 that in 2001, 2003, 2005 or 2008. Well.. that is a small part of the story. But a much larger part concerns how the inadequacies of each president were presented by the corporate media and seen by the deep state. Bush43, for all of his horrendously expensive failings, was seen as a borderline brain-damaged guy who could be reliably counted on to rubber-stamp whatever the elite and deep state types wanted. Oddly enough, though Trump45 has also been largely beholden to the wishes of elites and deep state types- he somehow elicits multiple magnitudes more hate and contempt from entertainment types than Bush43. What makes this even more peculiar is that Trump was quite popular with them before running for the presidency.

So.. how did Trump go from being somebody who was very acceptable to socialize with prior to 2016 to the literal embodiment of everything wrong about this country? Let us be honest.. his basic personality has not changed over the past few decades. He has always been a narcissistic blowhard and pussygrabber who loved the media spotlight, in addition to being moderately racist. To put it another way, he did not suddenly transform into what these “celebrities” claim to hate after he announced his presidential campaign in 2016. His lack of business acumen has been common knowledge for years and his odd interest in his eldest daughter (Ivanka) is an open secret. Just google ‘ivanka donald trump sitting lap‘ and see for yourself, or not.

My point is that all these entertainment “celebrities” who now claim to denounce and hate Trump with every breath had zero issues hanging out with him and (in some cases) even having sex with him before mid-2015. And they had far more knowledge about his numerous oddities and shortcomings than the general public. So what explains their sudden change in behavior towards Trump. How did he go from just another billionaire they hung out with (often, a lot) to a hated and detested pariah- in their eyes. And let us get real, the entertainment sector is filled with some of the most mentally screwed up and depraved people alive today. Have you heard these allegedly moral “celebrities” condemn the misadventures of Henry Kissinger in Cambodia or Bush43 in Iraq to anywhere near the level they rail against every single brain-fart.. I mean Tweet.. posted by Trump. Have they ever questioned HRC about the disastrous effects of her policies (as secretary of state) in countries such as Libya or Syria?

Anyway.. let us get back to the main focus of this post and talk about my explanation(S) for the newfound and peculiar hatred of Trump by entertainment “celebrities”.

1] A significant part of the public hate displayed by entertainment “celebrities” towards Trump after he became president comes down to virtue signalling. See.. in a place like Hollywood (used to describe the film, TV, music and related sectors), there is far more talent than there are opportunities. Consequently, everyone and their dog is trying to make sure that they maximize their chances of getting that first break or next assignment which will either make them famous or maintain their position. Since most of the hiring and casting in that sector is based on highly subjective criteria, everyone who cares about their next big paycheck (or simply a paycheck) has to make sure not to disqualify themselves. That is why everyone (who has not hit the big time yet) appears to have an unusually sunny and optimistic mindset. Face it.. that is also why there so are so many gurus, cults and other new-agey bullshit in that sector.

2] What is the common factor which unites the most vocal anti-Trump “celebrities”? Think about it.. what is common to Debra Messing, Alyssa Milano, Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Kimmel, Meryl Streep, Chelsea Handler, J.K. Rowling, Robert De Niro, Madonna and Ben Stiller. Let me give you a hint.. think of the last time they were successful in their field. In most cases, their last big hits were over ten years ago. Sure.. those were big hits, but nothing they have done since then have been significant. Perhaps they want to feel culturally relevant again? Another class of minor “celebrities” such as John Oliver, Lena Dunham, Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer etc are leveraging their public displays to further improve their visibility. And let us not kid ourselves, the anti-Trump bandwagon has proven to be quite profitable for some people such as Stephen Colbert, Alec Balwin in addition to subscriptions for NYT and WP.

3] It is well-known that the entertainment sector tends to attract people with unusually high levels of narcissism. That is why, for example, cults which promise enhanced personal development to their followers can recruit so easily in that sector. Such levels of narcissism also translate into believing that they are somehow special, enlightened or chosen to guide others. To be fair, a lot of the elite class in this country suffer from that affliction. Just look at how CEOs in Silly Valley want to “make the world a better place”, ivy-league dipshits who are certain of their superior mental capabilities or neo-liberal politicians who never had a real job in their lives talk about hard work and meritocracy. Long story short, some of Trump’s haters are getting high on their own drug supply- which is darkly comic.

In conclusion, Trump is an incompetent and ineffectual orange-haired buffoon. However, all the “celebrities” who go to considerable lengths to demonstrate their dislike and hatred of him are dishonest and cynical narcissists. In my opinion, they truly deserve each other.

Propaganda Provides an Excuse, Rather than Manufacturing Consent: 1

December 18, 2018 6 comments

Some years ago, I was watching (or rewatching) a YouTube video which was trying to tout the efficacy of government and corporate propaganda. Maybe it was something by Adam Curtis or a derivative work which used excerpts from The Century of Self. In any case, the precise identity of that clip has virtually no relevance to the topic of this series- for reasons which will soon become obvious. While I usually find such bullshit quite entertaining, if only for the apparent conviction of belief displayed by those who are into such stuff- this was different. Perhaps I was just feeling extra misanthropic that particular evening, or maybe it was the alcohol (likely both).. but an interesting idea came to my mind. What if propaganda provides an official-sounding excuse for people to act out their most depraved beliefs, rather than put it in their mind in the first place.

As regular readers of this blog know, my opinions about human beings as a species have never been especially high– to put it mildly. You can, therefore, see this series as an extension of my opinions on that subject. Anyway.. let us get back to the topic of this series by asking ourselves a simple question. What is the one central but unspoken assumption which has to be true for any propaganda to “work”? And remember that this unspoken assumption underlies every single explanation for the efficacy of propaganda- from Noam Chomsky and his ‘Manufacturing Consent’ to the pseudoscience.. I mean psychology crap spouted by any random loser slaving way at a marketing firm. Could it about linguistics, ‘neuroscience’ or some other clever sounding bullshit?
Think harder.. because once I reveal it many of you might say that it was obvious.

Are you ready.. here it goes.. All conventional explanations for the efficacy of propaganda are based around the assumption that human beings as a species are naturally good, kind, decent, altruistic, humane etc. Even the class of explanations which assume that humans are imperfect creatures make the implicit and unspoken assumption that they are basically good. As I will explain you later, there is a reason why even the most fucked-up human being firmly believes that he or she is a ‘good’ person. At this point, some might wonder whether I see human beings as ‘risen apes’ or ‘fallen angels’. Surprise.. I don’t see them as either. In my opinion, comparing human beings to apes is rather insulting to the later. So how do I see human beings as a species?

To be quite blunt.. human beings as a species are incapable of anything approaching objective thought, let alone reason. They are also fundamentally incapable of being kind, decent, altruistic or anything else which they want to believe about themselves. Instead.. they are an incredibly greedy, short-sighted, narcissistic and delusional species with an obsession for trying to dominate others and an all-consuming fear of their inevitable mortality. Human beings as a species not only lack a ‘moral compass’ of any kind, but are actually incapable of creating anything along those lines. Perhaps more importantly, this is the case irrespective of their “culture”, ethnicity, race, “IQ” or sex. And they also have a predilection for self-destruction. The fact that humans beings have not made themselves extinct after invention of nuclear weapons is a minor miracle.

While this assessment might sound unpleasant, it is based in reality. Read enough about history and you will be hard pressed to identify who was the lesser fuckup and delusional asshole in any interaction. If that is too much work, just look at the world around you with critical eyes. Think about all the people you have worked for, worked with, had sex with or are related to and then as yourself.. “Is this what passes for average humans?”. I am not saying that every single person is a delusional sadistic fuckup. Indeed we can all think of a few people (based on our personal experience) who are clearly not, but most of them are.. well.. sad fuckups. And that is why I use the expression ‘human beings as a species’ as opposed to ‘all humans’. In other words, not everyone- just the majority. But the majority, nonetheless.

Now you know why it was so easy to find tons of people willing to burn alleged witches in 16th-17th century Europe or why persecuting and lynching Jews was a popular pastime during the Great Plague epidemic of 1347-1351. That is also why mass human sacrifice was an important part of Aztec Culture or why the very ‘christian’ Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors went about killing and enslaving millions of people in south and central america. This is also how tens of millions died due to famine during British Rule of India or how many tens of millions of white men killed each other during WW1 and WW2. Did I mention the ethnic genocides which occurred in the last century such as the Armenian Genocide, the Ukrainian Famine of the 1930s, the Holocaust, all the millions who died in China between 1959-1961. Oh and that is separate from the millions killed during Japanese occupation of (parts of) China during the 1937-1945 timespan.

And this is just a tiny sliver of what you can find when you read enough history. Now tell me something.. do you think that human beings as a species have to be “brainwashed” to do evil and stupid things? Do you still think human beings really require a bunch of manipulators to get them to kill each other for no good reason? Or perhaps ‘propaganda’ just gives people a public excuse to act out their most depraved desires and pretend that it was not their idea. The far more straightforward (if unpleasant) explanation is that ‘propaganda’ simply provides most people a way to externalize responsibility for their shitty and stupid behavior. That way, they can do horrendous stuff but then also be able to pretend that they are good persons. It is all about enjoying the morbid deed but externalizing the responsibility of said deed.

In the next part, I will use a series of examples to show you that ‘propaganda’ is really about telling people that is OK be pathetic, depraved and murderous assholes. And remember that old white people who watch Fox News did not become sad racist losers after starting to watch that channel. Newsflash.. they were always racist losers. Fox News simply provided external validation for the beliefs which they always held but were too cowardly to display in public until some fuckface or bimbo on Fox News told them that it was OK to do so.
