Facts and Logic


RPG wrote,

On mother’s day, my mom, my girls, and my aunt and uncle went to dinner. As usual, my mom started w the feminist talking points:

“Don’t even think about getting married until you are at least 30,” she says mostly to my oldest.”

“I countered, “Actually, that’s really bad advice.”

“Why’s that?” My mom asks.

“Because just like in musical chairs it’s not good to wait until all the best chairs are taken and everyone is fighting over the last few.”

She pondered it, then agreed.

I said, “A lot of advice aimed at young women today just gets repeated without much thought to if it actually works.”

It led to a good discussion, not one my girls had not heard before, but a teachable moment nonetheless.

In years past elder women guided young women and gave them good advice. For the past few decades the advice has been more like, “hey let’s all run full speed toward this cliff, it will be great!”

When one is young, they might assume that facts and logic will win the day with respect to discussions with others, but one is dissuaded from this notion soon enough.  But sometimes it happens.  The above appears to be a case.

How did it happen?  It starts with the fact that the propaganda that they were filled with is just that — propaganda.  When exposed to the light of day, some can see the silliness of it all.  Another factor is that the kool-aid has apparently not be imbibed in too much.  Probably these Feminist beliefs had not become core to defining themselves.  In the case of girls, I would hope not, but these days the propaganda often starts young.

What is the lesson?  When the beliefs are not too set in stone, they can be modified with facts and logic.  Look for opportunities.   Do people a favor.  Explain the red pill truths  to them.

    Not to suggest that I directly disagree with RPG but I’ve been experimenting with a different idea. Many of the phenomena we have seen between the sexes over the last 50 years could be related to over population. I wonder if there isn’t some system lurking in our genes that turns off conventional sexual relations when there are too many people. This might express itself in different behaviors and different sorts of attraction, or the lack of it, in different people. In addition I’ve been wondering if, specifically, there hasn’t been a unconscious/genetic reaction to an overabundance of men. I suspect that mankind was designed for the number of men in the population to be considerably lower but we have removed the sort of violence and work related danger that typically thins the herd.

    Alan – You are right to think that there might be some explanation. There has been some solid research on the effects of crowding on rats. Crowding leads to slutty behavior, aberant sexual behavior, and ultimately a fall-off in new rats being born and an overall breakdown in the social structure. Some of the rats were allowed to escape the crowding and form their own societies. They seemed to congregate in groups of 12 or 13 if I remember right. It has been a while since I read the actual study results. This Wikipedia aritical highlights some of the findings.

    And, as always, it is useful to remember that what is true for rats may not translate directly to being true for humans. But some of us have grown up in the less crowded environments of farming communities. And then later in live have lived in big cities where crowding is pervasive. We may not be rats, that rat studies should apply directly to us. But there is an observable difference in the socialization, the mating strategies, and the success of establishing and raising families between the less crowded farming communities (of 50 years ago) and the more crowded cities.

    Adam – some other thoughts that tie into the line of thinking you are developing:

    In the 1950s and 1960s they were doing studies on factors that influence job satisfaction. Turns out that the biggest predictor of job satisfaction was “lack of alternatives” to the job in hand. “Do you have the skills to get a better job, and do those better jobs exist at the moment?” If the answer to either question was “no”, job satisfaction was rated higher than for those who could answer “yes” to either question.

    So Adam – something to consider: the presence or absence of alternatives. I think that plays a larger role in social structure than many folks account for.

    ** I mention from time to time how Adam and Eve, in spite of the horror of Eve forcing Adam to choose between her and God, and them both getting kicked out of the Garden, they managed to build a pretty good life for themselves outside of the Garden. What I haven’t mentioned so far is the issue of lack of alternatives. So far as we know, Adam did not have an alternative to Eve, and Eve did not have an alternative to Adam. They had to make do with what they had. They had to make the best they could with what they had. Choice was not a problem for them.

    ** Before the creation of planes, trains, and automobiles, most folks got about on foot or on horse. That meant that most folks did not travel much more than a day’s traveling distance from home for their entire lives (so says some statistic). Villages were small, and young men and women would seek a spouse from the villages within a day’s travel or so (to vary the gene pool as much as possible). More choices than Adam and Eve had in terms of alternatives for spouses. But, still – choosing from a relatively small pool of candidates. You picked one and stuck with them – because lack of alternatives.

    ** Muslims are so good at tiling because they are not allowed to create any depiction of the human form. So – while the library in the small village out in the country might have a picture of people on the wall, or a book with pictures of people in it, the Muslims had / have no such exposure to what other people look like – outside of the group of folks they can see in their limited travels away from home. So, for Muslims – a limited knowledge of what other folks look like, due to lack of alternatives to the folks close by.

    ——

    What does crowding do – besides the stress of little space to move? Crowding increases your alternatives. You see more of others like you (rats or people). You have more of the opposite sex to see and smell and get attracted to for sexual activity. Remember the study on predictors of job satisfaction: the more alternatives one had, the less likely they were to be satisfied with their job.

    So – think through what affect the presence or absence of alternatives has on stressing folks. More alternatives require more thinking, and more choosing. Some get stressed out over having to make a few choices. Others can handle a large number of choices. But eventually some level of choices will lead to analysis paralysis and render the person (or rat) dysfunctional. The reality of which is discussed in President Jimmy Carter’s book “Why Not The Best?” and is behind the concept of satisficing. If alternatives are numerous enough, we may spend our entire life analyzing, trying to identify the “best” choice. Better to pick “good enough” early on and get on with building a life.

    ——

    Calhoun’s “Behavioral Sink” with rats – linked to above – could well have come about over the stresses of crowding. But maybe the breakdown in social structure was brought about in part due to the increase in choice that everyone was suddenly faced with. And the difference in social structures and success in creating and growing families between farm communities of long ago and croweded cities might come less from the stress of crowding and more from the increase in alternatives. Where few alternative spouses exist, the lack of alternatives encourages the stability of the current family structure. Neither dad nor mom really have much choice about running off with someone else. Where multiple alternative spouses exist, one could be encouraged to bail at the first sign of discomfort and go get a new spouse. Or leave but not reconnect with someone, being so paralyzed by the sheer number of alternative spouses available that choice becomes impossible, cause we gotta get the best that’s available – and vetting/sampling them all takes a long time.

    What role does the development of the ability to percieve alternatives, properly evaluate each alternative, and then choose play in evolution? Or, what role does evolution play in the development of the ability to perceive, evaluate, and choose? Are social structures kept healthier when choices are more limited? Seems like we could make an argument for that. But at some point we have to address the historical reality of cuckoldry. Satisfaction with what is in hand rises when there is a lack of alternatives – meets “where there is a will there is a way”. If no new spouse for you, just borrow someone else’s for a while. But it is easier to keep that impulse in check in a small community where everyone knows everyone else’s business than in a large, crowded city where everyone can be anonymous.

    “The Best” is a deadly idea. It’s made worse when there is an affordable but incomprehensible selection just below the very expensive “Best.”

    “Someday” is equally deadly as opposed to Soon. We’ve all seen too many people give in to the temptation of having something Now. However, there is always a group who thinks they are being smart and delaying gratification for a big pay off who delay too long.

    I’ve seen this endlessly in people planning stuff related to retirement. They hold out of that Best that will come Someday and they end up with Never or moving into their dream house the year before they can no longer manage the stairs. I don’t ever plan to retire but, in general. I’ll take Pretty Good and I’ll take it Soon and hope I can lean back and enjoy it for a long time.

    Fair, I think, and accurate

    Delingpole at Breitbart

    “The best perspective I’ve had on this, funnily enough, comes from a black American former leftist from Baltimore who calls himself Carbon Mike. His analysis of the state of play is so percipient I’m going to share some of it with you:

    I just listened to the interview you did with Gerard Batten (well done), and I like him at least as much as you do. But I’ve also been following Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party, and I have to say: they seem like the best chance you all have of forcing your government to deliver Brexit.
    Batten, in my opinion, is Cincinnatus just in from the fields. He’s the quintessential plain-spoken, patriotic, take-me-as-you-see-me politician, and no decent person can help but respect and admire him for this. He’s also a good organizer.
    Nigel Farage, on the other hand, is Machiavelli at chess. Getting Ann Widdecombe, Claire Fox, and Annunziata Rees-Mogg (!) into his political party was a PR masterstroke, and it’s emblematic of how Farage is approaching this fight. The old allegiances may be shifting and dissolving, but they aren’t entirely gone, and a smart operator will use this to his advantage.
    Oddly enough, I think you have a much better chance at a Brexit worth the name now that both the Brexit Party and UKIP are in play, and here’s why. The smears and lies from what Martin Durkin calls “the new class” are not going to stop any time soon (if ever). One Leave-oriented party on the board means one target for them to attack. But two of them — especially when one of them has high-profile people with baggage — means that one can draw the enemy’s fire and soak up the negative publicity, and the other can say, “we’re the respectable Brexiteers”.
    Farage, as far as I can tell, hasn’t said anything really controversial — and he can barely get an Andrew Marr to leave off practicing offense archaeology and talk about the upcoming elections.
    [UKIP candidate] Carl Benjamin, on the other hand, made a gibe with the word “rape” in it. It was well done, and at the expense of someone I can’t stand, but every second he has to spend batting away stupid questions about it is a second he’s not talking about liberty, sovereignty, and getting the hell out of the EU.
    This doesn’t make him wrong. It may, however, make him — and, by extension, the party of which he is a member — the wrong instrument to achieve the political objective.
    I think Nigel Farage is acutely aware of this, and I think that when he says things to distance himself from UKIP, he does so on tactical, rather than ideological, grounds.
    It’s not pretty. A man like Batten deserves better. I actually admire Tommy Robinson, who is a real man in an age where real men are thin on the ground. I think Carl is quite sound on free speech, and I’m guessing Dankula would be great fun to hang out with, as you all say, down the local.
    But you’re playing against as ruthless an international(ist) cartel as ever opened a Swiss bank account. Being earnest alone will not cut it. I think the best-case scenario is what you have now, where the colorful and earnest men stand up, the adversary shoots his bolt — and the sappers dig.”

    Chiu writes that “having her breakout movie be associated with antiabortion messaging is a regret that has troubled [Diablo Cody] for years.”

    And who could blame her? You try sleeping at night with all those live babies haunting your conscience.

    “In a way I feel like I had a responsibility to maybe be more explicitly pro-choice, and I wasn’t,” Cody said during a Planned Parenthood benefit event in 2017 marking the film’s 10th anniversary, Vanity Fair reported. “I think I took the right to choose for granted at the time.”

    “I didn’t think it was ever going to get made,” she said. “I wasn’t thinking as an activist. I wasn’t thinking politically at all.”

    And if we take no other lesson from this sad story, let it be that — a good progressive is always an activist. She thinks politically 100% of the time and is always on guard against incursions of normal human feeling and thought.

    According to Chiu, Cody quickly saw the error of her ways when she got “A letter from her Catholic high school thanking her for “writing a pro-life movie,” she said, describing it as the “most horrifying thing.” The piece added:

    “I was like, I … hate all of you, and I’m as pro-choice as a person can possibly be,” she said.

    “I … hate all of you.” Clearly, Cody’s once again a progressive in good standing.

Roosevelt’s New Deal and the command economy he established during the Second World War.

And like the planners of the Roosevelt years, their intentions are clear and grandiose: They want the power to regiment a society of nearly 330 million people in pursuit of a pipe dream they liken to a war for survival

    (CNN)Thirty-four black women are expected to graduate from West Point next week.
    That will be the largest class of African-American women to graduate together in the military academy’s lengthy history, West Point spokesman Frank Demaro said.
    “Last year’s graduating class had 27,” said Demaro. “And the expectation is next year’s class will be even larger than this year’s.”
    Last year, the school appointed Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams as its first black superintendent.
    In 2017, the academy for the first time selected an African-American woman, Simone Askew, to serve at the top of the chain of command for cadets.
    “It makes me feel prideful that the academy is acknowledging diversity,” 2012 West Point alum Shalela Dowdy said.
    Dowdy, who said she makes an effort to stay in touch with female African-American cadets to “offer support,” believes the outreach the minority admissions office at West Point is doing is the reason why more minorities are coming to the school.

    DALLAS, TX—Local man Eric Spolar attempted to voice his opinion on abortion to a coworker Thursday.

    Unfortunately, he was informed that since he is a man, he does not get to have an opinion on killing babies.

    So, Spolar came up with a brilliant solution: he identified as a woman just long enough to voice his opinion on abortion, then reverted his gender identity back to male after he had said his piece.

    “Sorry: men don’t get a say,” his coworker, Tina, had informed him, shutting down his statement that maybe killing a baby doesn’t solve anything. “Only women get to have their voices heard on this issue.”

    “I’m sorry: did you just assume my gender?” Spolar replied, looking offended. “I actually identify as a 23-year-old woman named Veronica. Now do you have to listen to my opinion?”

    Tina reluctantly admitted that the man identifying as a woman now could say his piece, since gender is merely a social construct and not an inherent part of a person’s biological makeup. “That’s a really interesting take,” she said after he told her abortion is actually the taking of a human life, scientifically speaking. “Thank you for making your valuable transgender voice heard on this issue.”

One got into my trash a while back. I scared him off twice. Third time I asked our son to go out there with his pellet gun. As soon as he stepped outside you could hear the things all cawing to each other in the woods. They recognized the gun and hightailed it out of there.

    Meanwhile, the DOE has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on consultants to coach supervisors on how to “disrupt the power structure and dismantle institutional racism,” a supervisor said.

    “There’s been a lot of discussion of white supremacy and how it manifests in the workplace, conversations about race, and looking at how the white culture behaves,” said a white executive who received the training.

    “White supremacy is characterized by perfectionism, a belief in meritocracy, and the Protestant work ethic,” the exec said, adding that whites who object when accused of deep-rooted bias are called “fragile” and “defensive.”

    “Can you imagine if we scrutinized blackness or brownness? We’re being trained in anti-bias not to stereotype blacks, but they’re fostering a stereotyping of whites.”

    LeanIn.org and SurveyMonkey just released the results of a survey on the state of men and women interacting in the workplace in the age of #MeToo. The results are frustrating. The data reveals that 60% of male managers say they are uncomfortable performing common workplace activities such as mentoring, working one on one, or socializing with a woman. That’s a 32% increase over last year.

    To add insult to insult, senior-level men who were surveyed are now far more hesitant to spend time with junior female colleagues than junior male ones, across a range of basic work activities. The men were 12 times more likely to hesitate to have one-on-one meetings, nine times more likely to hesitate to travel with a junior woman for work, and six times more likely to hesitate to have a work dinner with a junior woman.

    Never underestimate the ability of a group of folks to take someone else’s ideas and bastardize them.

    Marx was a scholar who looked at evidence and came up with some theories. He wrote at a time when the worker was moving from home to the factory, from making products with a sense of pride and craftsmanship to being just a cog in a machine – doing work that he was not emotionally connected to. The assembly line was the example of this, where a person was only one of many who did them same motion over and over again. Marx was studying the alienation that was developing between the assembly-line workers and the owners of the means of production.

    It was not Marx who failed, for he never did anything other than study evidence and come up with theories. Those who failed were the ones who took his theories, bastardized them, and tried to implement them. Which led Marx to declare, about a group trying to implement their version of his ideas in France, if this is Marxism, I am not a Marxist

    Marx was not incorrect in his notice of the alientation that was developing between the workers and the owners of the means of production. That was an observable fact. Where folks went wrong, and still do go wrong, is in the solutions they propose to eliminate that alienation. There is a foundational fact that is stronger and more pervasive than Marx’s theory of alienation: we don’t get to keep what we can’t defend. Because of the disparity over large groups of people between their knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs), a small group will always get control over the means of production, and keep them out of the hands of everybody else.

    The solution is not Communism (a small subset of the ideas that Marx discussed), because that form of social organization does not get rid of the problem that Marx identified – the alienation of the worker from the satisfaction of being a craftsman, in charge of his own work product (the deciding what to create, the collecting of the things necessary for the production, and the actual production of the product). One could argue that the only solution is to put all of the factory workers back out into the country, on the land, and let them become their of boss of creating things. But that is not a practical idea for many reasons – chief among them being the fact that the skills of craftsmanship that folks used to have are pretty much lost. Folks have become too accustomed to the owners of the means of production telling them what they must do. The ability for one to figure that out for themselves does not much exist anymore.

    The following is an interesting read on long winter nights. It is a pretty good exploration of the development of Economic Thought The Table of Contents starts on Page 9. From there, you can find the Chapter that discusses the ideas of Karl Marx if you are interested.

    The Development of Economic Thought

    I like this part from the beginning of the book. It should be required reading for the pink hats. In part, to show them that they probably cannot understand what is written below. And, if they cannot understand it, that suggests their protests are not based on the reality of what it takes to eat by wrestling a harvest from the ground.

    Since he came down from the trees, man has faced the problem of survival, not as an individual but as a member of a social group. His continued existence is testimony to the fact that he has succeeded in solving the problem; but the continued existence of want and misery, even in the richest of nations, is evidence that his solution has been, at best, a partial one.

    Yet man is not to be too severely censured for his failure to achieve a paradise on earth. It is hard to wring a livelihood from the surface of this planet. It staggers the imagination to think of the endless efforts that must have been expended in the first domestication of animals, in the discovery of planting seed, in the first working of surface ores. It is only because man is a socially cooperative creature that he has succeeded in perpetuating himself at all.

    But the very fact that he has had to depend on his fellow man has made the problem of survival extraordinarily difficult. Man is not an ant, conveniently equipped with an inborn pattern of social instincts. On the contrary, he seems to be strongly endowed with a self-centered nature. If his relatively weak physique forces him to seek cooperation, his inner drives constantly threaten to disrupt his social working partnerships.

    In primitive society, the struggle between self-centeredness and cooperation is taken care of by the environment; when the specter of starvation can look a community in the face—as with the Eskimos—the pure need to secure its own existence pushes society to the cooperative completion of its daily labors. Under less stringent conditions, anthropologists tell us, men and women perform their regular tasks under the powerful guidance of universally accepted norms of kinship and reciprocity: In her marvelous book on the African Bushmen, Elizabeth Marshall Thomas describes how a gemsbok is divided among relatives and relatives’ relatives, until in the end “no person eats more than any other.” But in an advanced community this tangible pressure of the environment, or this web of social obligations, is lacking. When men and women no longer work shoulder to shoulder in tasks directly related to survival—indeed when two-thirds of the population never touches the earth, enters the mines, builds with its hands, or even enters a factory—or when the claims of kinship have all but disappeared, the perpetuation of the human animal becomes a remarkable social feat.

    So remarkable, in fact, that society’s existence hangs by a hair. A modern community is at the mercy of a thousand dangers: if its farmers should fail to plant enough crops; if its railroad men should take it into their heads to become bookkeepers or its bookkeepers should decide to become railroad men; if too few should offer their services as miners, puddlers of steel, candidates for engineering degrees—in a word, if any of a thousand intertwined tasks of society should fail to get done—industrial life would soon become hopelessly disorganized. Every day the community faces the possibility of breakdown—not from the forces of nature, but from sheer human unpredictability.

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg does not think there should be *any* restrictions on abortions, this means he supports abortion up until the moment of birth

    “You get the feeling that if the NYT cut out the ‘Women bitching about something’ articles they’d lose 25% of the newspaper.”

    Cathy Wilcox, a newspaper cartoonist, tweeted: “It seems unfair that the morons outnumber the thinking people at election time.” Broadcaster Meshel Laurie concluded that “Australians are dumb, mean-spirited, and greedy. Accept it.” Some were ready to write off the whole country. Brigid Delaney, a columnist for the Guardian, wrote, “It’s the country that’s rotten.” She reported from the Labor party’s Election Night event. People there had to face “the fact that their vision for Australia’s future was not affirmed,” she wrote. That “made them feel estranged and alienated from their own country.”

    Anyway, I’ve been surprised how few people know Justified.

    I dimly recall comparing Raylan to The Ton a couple of years back. Because badass southern boy.

    That was before I knew The Ton was a degenerate law breaker, of course.

    Luv you, Nii-san. 😀

    CdO: This is actually useful for anyone writing anything: Elmore’s 10 Rules for Writing. (“If it sounds like writing, rewrite it.”)

    He cut his teeth on westerns, like “3:10 to Yuma” (novel, movie) which we’ve discussed here previously, and is majorly red pill.

    DNR has counted 25 mountain lions in Iowa this year. One was wandering around Des Moines last week. I reckon wolves return next.

    Coyotes are all the way east to the WashDC burbs, where they feast on cats.

    Hell yes. Lemon, butter and garlic are like the Holy Trinity for fish.

    Chef bidness is busy. Restaurant was closed yesterday and today because of a Canadian holiday (and coincidentally, my first days off in…..wait, what month is it again?), and tomorrow the new menu drops for summer.
