China Implements Social Credit System

From Zerohedge:

“The owners of China’s largest social networks have partnered with the government to create something akin to the U.S. credit score — but, instead of measuring how regularly you pay your bills, it measures how obediently you follow the party line.”

This is to become compulsory in 2020. Scary stuff. And it’s easy to see how America’s “War on Terror” could take a similar turn, eventually leading to abuse of political dissidents, for example those speaking against corruption.

While this “statism” is frightening, I always find it ironic how Libertarians portray individualism as the antithesis.

If seeking truly anti-statist societies, one would venture to the divided Middle East or to Africa, places where man continues to be organised by tribe and faith.

A roadmap to “statism” would look like the following: tribalism –> individualism –> socialism. The individualism phase serves to break down group bonds, allowing for individuals to then be absorbed by the state.

Most of us would not view tribal chaos as utopian, but resistance to statism would seem to involve a degree of return to a more-tribal or more peasant-like existence, perhaps something like the Catholic ideal of subsidiarity. And were the state to collapse, society would naturally return to a tribal existence in the absence of the security provided by a state.

Since Marx is still the bogeyman of the Libertarians, I call attention to Marx’s “Theory of History“, which I can just pull up from wikipedia (though I have the relevant book if demanded of me).

Marx argues that capitalism is the predecessor to socialism. Capitalism breaks man down into a proletariat mass that owns little capital, depends on wages. And it is dominated by a small capitalist elite. Modern society looks somewhat different, but the point is that capitalism is seen by Marx/Engels as a natural predecessor of socialism. And it is this breaking down of traditions (creative destruction) and the wealth gap that creates the environment ripe for socialist revolution.

So, if truly wanting to oppose socialism, it would seem desireable to encourage a larger middle class, wider distribution of capital, perhaps a larger domestic (things made domestically as opposed to purchased) economy as well. (Note: a large middle class is not the same as opposing hierarchy. A hierarchy of wealth is not the only form of hierarchy possible in a society.)

And yet, we see so many on the Right defending wealth gaps, promoting individualism, declaring even that “greed is good”, working for the environment most fertile for the very socialist revolution they claim to oppose.

And individuals and nuclear families cannot hope to both work and master finance (investments), politics, culture (for raising their children), and charities. As individuals, we’re inevitably reliant upon either individual strangers or the state. A society broken into individuals is a society of patsies just begging to be manipulated and exploited. If we aren’t captured by an Orwellian nightmare, we’ll suffer some other doom. And no superior IQ, no Nietzschean will, no Social Darwinism should be relied upon to naturally make some individuals superior to others. In modern society, groups triumph, which is largely why Jews are so dominant and why individualistic whites are so weak.

Thus, what are needed to resist “statism” are group ties and a questioning of classical liberalism, the opposite of what most Libertarians call for.

With Defenders of Freedom like this, who needs “Statists”? To cure our societal ailment, we should go to the root of the problem: classical liberalism and the Enlightenment.

“Deep State” Video Game

Because there was previous interest in video games as culture war, I’d like to highlight the following game: Deep State.

Description:

Deep State is an incremental/idle game in which you are appointed director of the new National Security Bureau in the troubled Central Iverian Republic. Your job is to pacify the civilian populace and abolish democratic rule in favour of your own.

Purchase ENFORCEMENT to raise PACIFICATION and generate INCOME.
Purchase LEGISLATIONS with FEAR and MONEY to unlock more ENFORCEMENT and OPERATIONS.
Run OPERATIONS to generate FEAR and INCOME.
FEAR reduces PACIFICATION.

So, it’s a good parody of the police state. 9/11 attack –> Patriot Act.

I doubt anyone here wishes to play the actual game, but the concept is positive.

Ain’t That America?

Here’s a headline and a news story you could only see in a corrupt and degenerate empire in its dying throes:

Two TSA officers fired for scheme to grope hot men at Denver Airport

Two Transportation Security Administration employees have been fired and two others reassigned after they allegedly set up a system to allow a male screener to pat down attractive men going through security at Denver International Airport, authorities said.

The employees were not identified, and there will be no criminal charges because no victims have come forward, according to a police report.

Denver Police got involved in March, after a tipster brought it to the attention of the TSA in November, which conducted an investigation and contacted police.

The male screener would give a signal to a female employee when a male passenger arrived that he thought was attractive, and she would falsely enter the sex of the passenger as female, so the machine would report an anomaly that triggered a pat down of a passenger’s groin, police said in a report.

She told the TSA investigators she did this for the other officer at least 10 times in the past, according to the report.

That pretty much says it all, doesn’t it? You’ve got a police state that ignores the 4th amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure. You have an all-powerful Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — heck, the name alone should give you the creeps. Government power is ALWAYS abused, so it’s no surprise that power is placed at the service of a sicko who gets his kicks kneading the genitals of helpless, unsuspecting victims.

Pardon me while I throw up. And pardon me if I do not pledge allegiance to such a sick regime.

Don’t insult me by objecting that these are just two bad apples. The TSA — which used to stand for Totalitarian Search Administration, but could now stand for Total Sex Abuse — is an agency of the federal government created by that great conservative George W. Bush. The agency’s purpose is to violate the privacy rights of Americans. And there’s no escape from it, as this official gloated:

“TSA teams are increasingly conducting searches and screenings at train stations, subways, ferry terminals and other mass-transit locations around the country,” the Los Angeles Times reported. Ray Dineen, the air marshal in charge of the TSA office in Charlotte, N.C., told the paper, “We are not the Airport Security Administration. We take that transportation part seriously.”

And the peculiar sexual tastes that screener indulged now have the official stamp of approval of the same federal government, whether the people of the once-sovereign States like it or not. The only reason the Denver Deviant got in trouble is because he didn’t get informed consent from the hot men he fondled.

So take it away, John Cougar Mellencamp:

Ain’t that America for you and me
Ain’t that America hey somethin’ to see baby
Ain’t that America oh home of the free
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Gray State Director, Wife and Child Found Dead

I don’t want to be the guy who cries conspiracy theory every time something happens. It is entirely possible that this was a murder-suicide. Oddly, the article does not say who the alleged murderer was, the husband or the wife. But given that this guy was making a movie about FEMA camps, it does make you go hmmm…

According to the article, they may have been dead since before Christmas. If so, it’s odd that it would have taken so long to discover the bodies and suggests that the family might have been isolated/estranged from friends and family.
