Captain Marvel Once Again


We last visited Captain Marvel here.  A long list of possible reasons as to why she is so unappealing were listed, basically boiling down to the fact that she is so perfect, without struggle and that she really seems to be selfish.  The former makes for little story to be had and the latter makes for generally unlikable character.  

But I am thinking that there is something more.  I have noticed that many lefty types are not so enamored with Captain Marvel.  They might profess allegiance, because the is what they are supposed to do, but often there are doubts.  There is a level of discomfort.  Where might it be coming from?

I am wondering it is just as simple as the idea that the role that she takes just makes people uncomfortable.  Women just are not supposed to be like that; to be uber-powerful, totally dictating the agenda.  Perhaps both sexes are deep-down uncomfortable with this situation.  Something says that this is just not how things should be.  

It might take something like this to overcome the typical lefties programming.  And it often does seem to.  Probably they would say that this is a response to some learned false consciousness thing, but rather it does seem that the lefty promotion of ideas such a Captain Marvel is the real false consciousness.  

Exit question — What makes for a false conscious?

    Nobody likes her because she’s Karen as Kal-El.
    Christopher Reeves’ Superman was wildly popular because he was, of all things, humble. Also, he still espoused “Truth, Justice and The American Way” completely unironically. Bree Larsen could never pull that off. Reeves was a good enough actor that he could actually portray empathy; the audience could see an alien with immense power still caring about individual humans around him. Larsen looks like she hates everyone around her; her pre-Endgame interviews with other cast members tend to back that up.

    False consciousness is a Marxist term which more or less means believing things contrary to Marx’s teachings to your own detriment. Since I hold that Marx was a simpering lunatic filled with mindless envy while being economically illiterate I am sure that Marxists would accuse me of having a false consciousness. I would merely respond that I enjoy exercising the benefits of my privilege in enlightened self interest, including investing in a number of nifty anti-Marxist devices, which unfortunately I lost in the bottom of a lake in a canoeing accident if anyone comes looking for them.

    Firstly, Gal looks better. Second, Wonder Woman at times appears to be feminine. Third, Wonder Woman likes guys. Fourth, Wonder Woman has a dose of humility. Fifth, Wonder Woman acts selflessly to save the World. Sixth, Wonder Woman doesn’t have a chip on her shoulder that has nothing to do with respect to saving the World.

    Cill,
    I’ve been into it with my older family members over this. My view from the ground? The Boomers would rather see their descendants slaughtered and/or sold into slavery rather than be called “racist.” Since the group tearing down statues has named themselves “Black Lives Matter” the Boomers will not oppose them. They are genuinely more afraid of being called “racist” for opposing BLM’s goals than they are of seeing their own grandchildren slaughtered. Obviously not universal as we see in the video, but a vast majority.

    The thing a lot of people don’t get about this BLM thing is that the name is really deceptive. But it’s that way for a reason because if you oppose it then you’re racist but if you support it, then you are supporting the lawlessness and the rioting and all the rest. I think people are starting to see now that it’s more than meets the eye. I hope so because this group is actually very radical and their beliefs are very much not main stream.

    So, your sort of sideways point that nobody is willing to finger the protests for the spike in cases is probably correct. I did some work on this about a week ago, but am not willing to write about it myself, being a corporate tool. Math: Median time from exposure to symptoms (if you get them) is 5-6 days. Median time from symptoms to hospitalization is 7 days. Point is, hospitalizations should start to increase ~12 days from a super spreader event. Well, that is exactly when cases started to spike here in Austin. I graphed the “Texas reopening” orders against the Austin MSA hospitalization graph. No effect, until exactly 12 days after the first big demonstration. Here you go.

Since April 24, the daily case count started declining, then began rising again after around June 9. What virtually every fear-mongering story on America’s allegedly precarious situation leaves out, however, is the steadily dropping daily death numbers — from a high of 2,693 on April 21 to 808 on June 24. That April high was driven by New York City and its environs; those New York death numbers have declined, but they have not been replaced by deaths in the rest of the country.

    It is a form of racism where you don’t need specific examples.

    Google on the term, or type it into WIkipedia.

    There are very specific examples given of what is meant by the term.

    Example: (one out of many examples)

    1. Person A is poor and so must buy a house in a poor neighborhood.

    2. Schools are funded through property taxes. House prices are low, so few property tax dollars are collected. Therefore, schools have little money to spend on education.

    3. Few property tax dollars means that the schools are populated by the cheapest teachers, which implies the least effective teachers.

    4. Person A’ children are taught by these deficient teachers. So Person A’s children grow up to not be very wise. They can only get poor-paying jobs. So they can only buy houses in poor neighborhoods.

    5. Go to Point 2. Do not pass GO. Do not ever escape this cycle.

    This cycle exists, and is observable. My problem is with the folks who think that only black people experience this cycle.

    This picture jumped out at me in one of those “aha” moments.

    This woman has pleasured a man with her body.
    This woman has gotten pregnant.
    This woman has born children.
    This woman has nurtured children.
    This woman has educated children.

    This woman has nurtured a man.
    This woman has helped a man with his mission.
    This woman has enabled a man to do more with her than he could do alone.

    Now – imagine the women lining the wall behind her have done none of these things. Imagine that this truth explains the expressions on their faces.

    Sharkly is racist, not because of anything he has said or done, but because he is part of “the racist system”.

    Systemic racism is genetic or absolute racism. All racists are white and all whites are racist. Sharkly is racist because he’s the wrong race.

    The woman in the green dress and Duchess Kate are beautiful. The woman in purple has something wrong with her, just an instinct that I wouldn’t want her. The other two are just outside my culture and race, but are otherwise attractive and wholesome.

    I wish I could find women like that. I think I have known maybe three or four in a decade. The rest of them have had screaming red flags. I had hoped Gen Zed was going to be better off than Millenials, but if anything it looks worse. All the good girls get locked down in high school and by the time they get to my social circles they have taken a turn for the worse. Just the decay of a few years as I make my way through school is shocking.

    “This cycle exists, and is observable. My problem is with the folks who think that only black people experience this cycle.”

    So, if the cycle happens to all, independent of a person’s race, then perhaps that systemic feature is just being mislabeled as “racism”, when in fact it is a fairly normal part of how this world functions. Jesus said:

    Mark 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.

    Apparently this problem (the ill effects of poverty) preceded Jesus arrival and existed beyond His ministry, and as He commented will last for “always”. Karl Marx didn’t stamp poverty out, he just spread it to everybody, instead of just a small percentage. It seems that those who are currently fighting this “systemic racism” are actually pushing Marxist ideas as if they were solutions, and are pushing for a Marxist revolution. What if the children of alcoholics tend to become alcoholics, and the children of those mired in poverty tend to stay mired in poverty. What if that was just normal, and how life generally works, not the result of some conspiracy against the children of alcoholics and those impoverished?

    My parents were missionaries. They were not rich, but poor. But I was smart and ambitious and quickly pulled myself out of poverty, joining the ranks of the wealthy. Then shit happened and I’m suddenly back down in the middle class, workin’ for the man. Although now I have learned to be content with that condition. It was quite easy for me to move from class to class in our society, despite no affirmative action to help my kind. What if it was low IQ, lack of ambition, poor work ethic, or foolishness holding most back? What if they lack what keeps the rich ahead? Do we penalize the rich to give the poor unearned wealth? Will those welfare babies grow up to honor the generous Capitalist society which paid for their every meal? Or will they grow up envious of those who have attained more, and still prone to foolishness like Marxism?
    While not all wealth or poverty is earned, some win(luck) and some are robbed. Those are exceptions! Don’t legislate as though the exceptions are the rule. Trying to create equality among people who are inherently unequal, will only penalize those who excel and reward those who are deficient or negligent, creating a perverse incentive to mire all men in mediocrity. God would not want that disincentive to be there for all men to squander the gifts He has unequally given to men. If more is expected by God from those whom He gave greater gifts to, then it is sinful to try to keep them back from greater achievement, by taking away all their incentive in this world. William Bradford’s Godfearing pilgrims tried Communism here in America, long before Karl Marx invented it, and after it horribly failed, and was then replaced successfully with private property and Capitalism, William Bradford then wisely concluded that communism was a vain conceit against God:
    The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst godly and sober men, may well evince the vanity of that conceit of Plato’s & other ancients, applauded by some of later times;—that the taking away of property, and bringing in community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser then God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed much confusion & discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. … Let none object this is men’s corruption, and nothing to the course itself. I answer, seeing all men have this corruption in them, God in His wisdom saw another course fitter for them.

    Trust and agency are central pillars of the RvG system, so it is not surprising that trust has been thrown in the trash. The shame of this has not been perceived because it has been displaced by a new standard of honor – namely “oppression” and intersectional stack.
