Likewise, within the myriad of faux-esoteric tangents, BAP occasionally drops hints of practical wisdom, encouraging supporters to be pragmatic and not mere LARPers, for example. But even behind the superficialities and flair which prompts one to describe Bronze Age Mindset as a work of schizoid nonfiction, there is an aire of artistic, creative, and (depending who you ask) philosophical genius.

Sounds like some "I am very smart" retards trying to use enough buzzwords and psuedo-philosophy to sell a shitty book.

Even the concept wouldn't make any fucking sense. There is no such thing as a "bronze age mindset" to begin with. It's a period in history and human civilization where you had violently different, geographically isolated populations that shared nothing in common.

It sounds like: "Return to Monkey: but with more words"

Daniel Dale: "Even though I'm a communist and a feminist, this fucking slag won't date me no matter how many dick pics I DM her! Better try a fact-check, then I can go out with her and her boyfriend!"

There's actually a mechanism to this and you hit on it.

It's the same reason Exxon is okay with a carbon tax, but not a carbon market.

Taxes can be worked around through their lawyers, but a full blown regulatory system would require them to invest in buying even more bureaucrats and regulators than they already pay for.

Literally just taking their money is more predictable and accountable. Because of that, it's easier to navigate around them.

I've been slowly subverting and red-pilling my boss over the past 2 years of my employment (it helps that he's listening to Jocko Willink and focusing on personal responsibility), and I was able to use this to come to him about the fact that one of the new managers he hired is pre-disposed towards racialism.

You know me, I actually tried to rationalize it as "she has pride towards the accomplishment of being the first person in her family, and community, to go to college, and she's misconstruing her hard work for an inherent or systemic issue". But I was able to use that approach to make him realize: yeah, no, she can't be pushing racialism over merit.

It's a hard conversation to have with minorities without coming across like a lunatic, even if I'm right: "This a black national socialism". But if you're gentle and respectful enough, they'll no the direction they need to push people in. I think we're even getting her to turn around on some issues. There's a heavy push on personal development that I and my manager have been trying to make on the rest of our team, and there's another black woman on staff who had a strong father figure, and also pushes personal responsibility a lot to... so I think it's starting to rub off on her.

...

Hmmm. Maybe I am as bad as I'm labeled.

subvert all the racialists

I haven't seen that in some of my smaller companies. The Software Developers are a bit too protective of the applications they are building, and aren't commenting it enough, but I wouldn't say complete and total incompetency.

Copy pasta:

Seriously, this is screaming all the signs of an imminent collapse of a bubble.

The biggest result of a bubble is malinvestment. Inflation promotes malinvestment.

This is like that scene in The Big Short where "Mark Baum" discovers that no one affiliated with the bank's mortgage sales even knows what they are doing. They aren't doing credit checks, they aren't interested in bank statements, they are just pushing out bad mortgages to people who can't afford them, then the idiots run around with the money blowing it out their ass. "Why are they confessing?"

The whole system is on fire, and nobody gets it. The stupidity is a necessary part of malinvestment. There's so much money being thrown around that it's being weaponized and nobody cares if any work is ever done. The over-financialization of the whole economy is blowing up in everyone's faces, and these DIE initiatives are just the most obviously useless malinvestment, that only exists as a method of controlling competition.

I know, I know, I sound like fucking Sarah Connor all the time, but she's fucking right.

The worst part is that this is the mania phase of the bubble. Everyone's just hysterically lying to themselves that everything is perfect. The longer the correction is delayed, the more violent the correction becomes. The Perennial Gale of Creative Destruction can't be denied.

Yeah, Beethoven is more about passion than intellect.

You can feel free to break down the algorithm's of classical music, and that's a different way to understand Beethoven, but he intended for his music to be listened to, not mathematically analyzed.

I'm not even sure he would have known what Calculus was.

Sounds good to me. I think if you want an example, I can probably download one of the premium tiers as an audio file and email it to you.

Absolutely correct. They are planning on taxing all money transfers over $600 as well. They literally want to tax you for moving money between your saving and checking account.

I've been pulling cash out of my checking account because it's probably a safer bet unless the criminalize cash itself (which isn't impossible).

You are the most useful of all commenters. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Definitely get the Bronze tier and try it for a month to check it out.

The premium subjects are pretty damn good. I'm probably going to upgrade to silver tier to listen to the written articles. I'm also a fan of history, so the long-form discussion about historical subjects with History Bro are my jam as well.

Winning is just the out-come of consistently doing the right thing.

Learn the job of the man above you, teach your job to the man below you . Then, you keep pushing, and you can adapt when you lose people.

"The natural Man is peaceful and just, and it is society and civilization who corrupts him", I very quickly came to the conclusion of "Oh no, he's retarded"

I could see the argument at the time, but it's just provably false now.

Then they started talking about him and had some of his quotes on Lotus Eaters

I think that's a premium segment I haven't listened to yet.

Is China really the end boss? I don't believe that.

China's not the end-boss. There is no real "end-boss" because all of the biggest bosses have their own separate agendas. The Fabians and the CCP are tied together, but (like all Leftists) they are not perfect allies. They still want to screw each other over. China is just a major player in Australia's affairs. Thier global strategic initiative in the Pacific and Africa are also something to keep an eye on.

The problem with the idea of it being Chinese domination is that if the whole world's governments were really led by the Chinese, why are we still all talking about Taiwan?

I'm not saying that, it's not that simple. China is one major player. They have limits on what they can do. The Fabians are another major player, and they have limits on what they can do.

It's also extremely weird that both Taiwan and Ukraine were completely silent and uneventful for the three weeks that the NDAA included a draft for women.

Huh? Taiwan and Ukraine are both in a bit of a shitstorm right now due to a lack of American interest. They are scrambling to find allies. Taiwan is finding them in Japan, SK, and Vietnam. Ukraine... well, they might not exist here in a few months. They're not finding allies generally.

That's one of the reasons I've had to explain to people that these vaccines can't prevent infection. The Media is intentionally confusing infection with noticeable illness and even hospitalization.

Believe it or not NPR actually broke my brain because I genuinely opposed Trump in 2016. However, there were so many overt lies that they were spewing it was blowing my fucking mind.

  • "On The Media", a media watchdog program, had their producer come on and explicitly state that objective journalism could not be tolerated any longer because Trump was a despot. This was in October of 2016. ... ... I started yelling at my car radio in the Taco Bell drive through.

  • "It's Been A Minute" did a story about a border town that was basically entirely Mexican. They interviewed an old white woman who lived there her whole life, and said that she had no choice but to move because all her friends and family had either moved or died. She also cited that no one spoke English, no one wrote in English (so she couldn't even communicate with people to do shopping), and crime was rampant. The lady said several of her remaining friends had been mugged. The interviewer talked to a college professor that said she was just re-iterating racist stereotypes, and that she basically had to learn Spanish and be uncomfortable. The narrator said that there hadn't been any evidence that crime had increased, but other people they interviewed had reported muggings and someone crashed a car into a bank and robbed it. ... ... I started yelling at my car radio in the Burger King drive through.

  • I think it was "Weekend Edition" that had a panel to discuss the Hollywood Access tapes that had been released. It was the one where Trump talked about pussy grabbing. Now, having listened to the damn thing, I know he said, "When you're rich, they LET you grab them by the pussy." Keyword let, indicating consent. They accused Trump of admitting to rape. ... ... I started yelling at my car radio on a side-street.

  • Another news show came on and spoke about a recent mass shooting. They mentioned that the NRA said that more efforts needed to be taken in regards to the US's broken mental healthcare system to reduce these types of incidents. In response, NPR put on a political activist for an Autism Awareness organization who claimed that the NRA was trying to blame Autistic people for mass shootings. ... ... I started yelling at my car radio in the farmer's market.

  • On one of their evening news shows, they had a panel that mentioned that Betsy DeVoss (the Trump cabinet member I've had a perfect 180 turn around on) had entirely rescinded the "Dear Colleague" memo which had effectively ordered schools to construct Title IX Tribunals which were explicitly unconstitutional. I'd actually had to defend someone who was alleged to have sexually harassed me in their tribunal. I was not originally called upon to give any statements, despite being the alleged victim. I was ecstatic to learn that at the very least the impetus for these Cardiassian-style tribunals was finally gone. The panel claimed that DeVoss had legalized rape on campus. ... ... I started yelling at my car radio in a parking lot.

Correlation doesn't equal causation, but for some strange reason I haven't yelled at my car radio since I stopped listening to NPR.

This doesn't even mention the time when years ago, Left-wing liberals were calling into a call-in show during the Bundy Ranch stand-off and were advocating for drone-striking the entire protest and killing everyone there. I remember that at the time, I was writing an argument in my philosophy class on why drone strikes might be necessary against specific terrorists, and how much resistance I had been getting from other Left-wingers. Now, it was weird because the show was like, Science Friday, so that guy had no reason to vent to them about that issue, and they quietly walked him off the air, but they didn't condemn him or anything. Nowadays, I'd expect that attitude to be far more commonplace.

Honestly, I oughta do the same thing with the "What do we want, dead cops, when do we want it, now" chats or "Every city every town, burn the precinct to the ground." and put it overtop of the the "January 6th Memorials".
