... If we would all just sit down and shut up...

The president addressed the nation’s jobs crisis by touring the rust belt in a caravan of foreign-made buses. Jobs are so important to him that he’s going on vacation.

Taking a page from European royalty of old (Please continue reading this with a high British accent), His Highness hopes that pictures of him and his family splashing in the sun will gladden the hearts of his poor downtrodden subjects. Not to worry you poor grubby blighters, blistering away in the teeming inner cities! He’s giving a jobs speech in September!  Chin up!

Global Flash Mob

This globalization/I.T. revolution is also “super-empowering” individuals, enabling them to challenge hierarchies and traditional authority figures — from business to science to government. It is also enabling the creation of powerful minorities and making governing harder and minority rule easier than ever. See dictionary for: “Tea Party.” (Tom Fried man – A Theory of Everything)
Every now and then I actually agree with limousine liberal and Chinese Politburo fanboy Tom Friedman. He has a good point about how the democratization of technology is turning the tables, but then he went and blew it.

What’s the danger to America, according to the New York Times Davos men? 

Not Philadelphia flash mobs, or people getting beat up at the Wisconsin state fair. Not an out of control government that has literally destroyed trillions of dollars of wealth… No. The Tea parties and, horror of horrors, that Texas gunslinger Rick Perry. They are the problem.

The European-North America Connection

I see a healthy young man standing in the Safeway parking lot with a cardboard sign announcing he's lost his job, his wife is pregnant and they are hungry. “Yeah right,” I think. Millions sneak across our southern border and easily find a job despite illegal status and limited ability to speak English.” The guys I see doing this appear to be in their early 20’s, in good shape, and white. And shameless? Or willfully useless?

Not so much different than England’s youth being aced out of employment by harder working higher skilled Eastern Europeans.

Our angry mobs and swarms of criminals are not so different than those of Europe.  And we haven’t seen the worst of it yet, writes Walter Russell Mead in his article, Urban Warming and Racial Climate Change. He concludes that whether we like it or not, we will have to have a national dialog on race. Unfortunately, Obama and his “Justice” Department Poobah Eric Holder, have proved themselves incapable of dialog with us cowards.

Class Warfare isn't just for England

There have been numerous outbreaks of street violence across Europe, including in France and Greece. One can expect more in countries like Italy, Spain and Portugal, which will now have to impose the same sort of austerity measures applied by the Cameron government in London.
And how about the United States? Many of the same forces are at play here.  The prospects for a widening class conflict are clear even in China, where social inequality is now among the world’s worse.  (Joel Kotkin - Global Class War)
My Objectivist libertarian friends will hate his conclusion:  Ayn Rand individualism will not get us out of this.  Uneducated unskilled looters running off with sneakers and big screen TVs are acting in their rational self-interest.

The truth is society needs a combination of the morality championed by social conservatives and the individual liberty championed by libertarians. Freedom does not work without morality, and morality can not exist without freedom.

The Constitutional Insurgent said...

@Tretsin - Probably a salient point, except that morality is inherently subjective. My ideal of morality is secular based, while others are religious based.

I respect everybody's right to a personal faith in whichever deity they choose, but my opinion of religion in general is that is an act of adhering to a dogma that is counter to freedom of thought and action.

The compromise is one of the dynamics frustrating civilization since the beginning of time.

Thersites said...

Constitional Insurgent.

Bullsh*t. Pascal's "Pensees" proves you wrong. Secular morality is an ever flowing river in a current of free thinking. It can justify anything. Don't believe me though, believe the so-called anti-religious "progressives".

Even the secular Constitution is merely a sea-anchor barely restraining them... pointing them into the storm. The Christian religion is an oil poured upon and calming those waters.

That must make perfect sense to someone who abides the dogma. Not so much to has more allegiance to reason and logic, than to what could arguably be termed a fairy tale.

Note again, I have no issue with religion....I have enormous beef with what many people do with it.

lol! And what do you think "reason" and "logic" are... G_d's a priori Word? lol! Talk about "dogma"...

Nietzsche, "Gay Science"


Origin of the Logical. Where has logic originated in men's heads? Undoubtedly out of the illogical, the domain of which must originally have been immense. But numberless beings who reasoned otherwise than we do at present, perished; albeit that they may have come nearer to truth than we! Whoever, for example, could not discern the "like" often enough with regard to food, and with regard to animals dangerous to him, whoever, therefore, deduced too slowly, or was too circumspect in his deductions, had smaller probability of survival than he who in all similar cases immediately divined the equality. The preponderating inclination, however, to deal with the similar as the equal - an illogical inclination, for there is no thing equal in itself - first created the whole basis of logic. It was just so (in order that the conception of substance should originate, this being indispensable to logic, although in the strictest sense nothing actual corresponds to it) that for a long period the changing process in things had to be overlooked, and remain unperceived; the beings not seeing correctly had an advantage over those who saw everything "in flux." In itself every high degree of circumspection in conclusions, every skeptical inclination, is a great danger to life. No living being might have been preserved unless the contrary inclination - to affirm rather than suspend judgment, to mistake and fabricate rather than wait, to assent rather than deny, to decide rather than be in the right - had been cultivated with extra ordinary assiduity. The course of logical thought and reasoning in our modern brain corresponds to a process and struggle of impulses, which singly and in themselves are all very illogical and unjust; we experience usually only the result of the struggle so rapidly and secretly does this primitive mechanism now operate in us.

Again, Jersey, you completely blow off the main point and go straight to the inane liberal talking points. At least you're consistent.

Thersites said...

The diaper p*ssers embrace reason... and elevate her into their elegiac pantheon of "equalities".

Nietzsche , "Will to Power" 471 (1885-1886)

The presupposition that things are, at bottom, ordered so morally that human reason must be justified--is an ingenuous presupposition and a piece of naivete, the after-effect of belief in God's veracity--God understood as the creator of things.--These concepts an inheritance from a former existence in a beyond

The dog of dogma bites the "reasonable" man on the ass.

Thersites said...

Nietzsche, WtP, 512 (1885) Logic is bound to the condition: assume there are identical cases. In fact, to make possible logical thinking and inferences, this condition must first be treated fictitously as fulfilled. That is: the will to logical truth can be carried through only after a fundamental falsification of all events is assumed. From which it follows that a drive rules here that is capable of employing both means, firstly falsification, then the implementation of its own point of view: logic does not spring from will to truth.

Thersites said...

Nonsense. I'm sure one of Farmer's multiple personalities will be glad to acquaint you with Marcus Aurelius.

The Constitutional Insurgent said...

Wow, Diaper pisser. Sounds very Christian to me. If you're so convinced of your belief, why the vitriol? Is it because some of us don't wish to be governed by the tenets of your invisible friend?

I suppose things are much easier to understand when you have a book that you don't question.

Thersites said...

You think I'm a Christian?


Thersites said...

No. I know the hell the Christians will make on earth with their "will to power" of "equality". They know that theirs is only a "faith". You, on the other hand, think you actually KNOW something... when the TRUTH is that you "know" NOTHING!

The Christians know that they do NOT know. That makes them 100x smarter than you, who THINKS he knows.

Thomas Friedman:

”Alas, for the 50 years after World War II, to be a president, mayor, governor or university president meant, more often than not, giving things away to people. Today, it means taking things away from people.”

FT: Yes, sir! That’s what Socialism does -- it robs the productive sector, and bleeds it till pernicious anemia sets in.

“While these social protests — and their flash-mob, criminal mutations like those in London — are not caused by new technologies per se, they are fueled by them.”

FT: Technology is responsible on one level. We used to all it “automation.” Automation reduced the number of jobs available to unskilled workers. Result? A huge number of unemployed -- and unemployable -- people cluttering up the welfare roles, and dragging down the economy. The REAL culprit, however, has been the Labor Movement (Communist-inspired, of course). The machinations of Laborites have forced captains of Industry first to increased automation , then to outsourcing.

”We are increasingly taking easy credit, routine work and government jobs and entitlements away from the middle class — at a time when it takes more skill to get and hold a decent job, at a time when citizens have more access to media to organize, protest and challenge authority and at a time when this same merger of globalization and I.T. is creating huge wages for people with global skills ...”

FT: Public Education has become a system of mass indoctrination that imparts resentment and rebellious attitudes with constant lass warfare rhetoric, and propaganda about the virtues of sexual aberrations of every sort. Our children are not learning anything practical. They’re being trained to think of themselves as victims. As our citizens become more and ore conditioned to being useless, the productive sector shrinks. The net COULD be a great teaching tool -- and is for many who know how to use it -- but when our young people are given no positive role models and no vision worth aspiring towards dangerously dismal results are inevitable. Pop culture is rotten and accelerates the process of decay and disintegration every day.

Authority without accountability is tyranny.

Only when authority and accountability are combined can liberty exist.

I don't really think the looters are acting in their rational self-interest, though. I believe that they think they are, but it's a very short-sighted self-interest. At the very least, they don't take into consideration the deep and lasting damage done to their characters by such behavior.

Walter Russell Mead:

”A story that involved Scott Walker getting his just deserts, even if it didn’t quite work out that way, was infinitely more interesting to our national press than a deeply disturbing gaze into the fragile nature of our social peace.”

FT: Hardly news there. It’s been painfully obvious for nearly half a century that the media has been cooperating with some sort of hidden agenda designed to bring us down, so that we may be refashioned in a new mold that will best serve the interests of the Movers and Shakers.

”... the poor urban Black community is in a deepening crisis of social dislocation and economic marginalization and that while the national conversation has moved past the issues of the inner city, those problems are becoming more dangerous.”

FT: This is the natural inheritance that comes from the Tragic Error of ever having brought African Negroes and other people generally regarded as markedly inferior and, therefore, worthy of exploitation to the West. As the not-so-funny Southern Redneck bumper sticker says: “If I’d a know how it was all gonna turn out, I would picked my OWN cotton.” Now, that Negroes and other formerly-exploited groups are no longer useful to us whites, they have become a millstone around our necks. And it’s no one’s fault but our ancestors.’ The sins of the fathers will be visited upon the sons for countless generations to come.

”Former State Department head of policy planning Anne-Marie Slaughter links to a blog citing an academic paper arguing that fiscal austerity promotes riots.”

FT: But of course! When government deliberately creates a large and ever-expanding population of helpless, hopeless dependents and when Government cripples Industry so severely that Industry is literally forced to go to automation and outsourcing in order to survive, you get the moral equivalent of TNT. Society is primed to explode by a series of bad decisions all along the line. It’s just cause and Effect. There’s no mystery about it.

”Youths with serious economic and social grievances ... are dismissed and insulted by officials on both sides of the Atlantic.  The result is unjustifiable but all too predictable violence.”

FT: It’s the SOCIALISM, stupid. It’s the God-damned SOCIALISM.

”The Civil War transformed the slavery question into the modern race question: What would be the relationship of the two races once slavery disappeared?”

FT: I guess we know the answer to that one, don’t we? What a stupid question! The truth is that population groups completely anomalous and incompatible with Western Culture should NEVER have been introduced into our Civilization. That thy were brought here to be ILL-TREATED makes it a sin as well as generally bad idea. Sooner or later sin brings about its own punishment. The suffering it causes is universal and exponential.

Exactly. As soon as you lose "the faith", the whole thing crumbles like some old moldy bleu cheese. Civilization yields to her "oh so logical and rational" discontents, and Rome falls again to her degenerate former slaves.

How's faith in the old secular Constitution holding up there, Constitutional Insurgent? You're only one Obama SCOTUS appointment away from total Constitutional rejection and Obamacare.

”The growing chasm between the classes has its roots in globalization, which has taken jobs from blue-collar and now even white-collar employees; technology, which has allowed the fleetest and richest companies and individuals to shift operations at rapid speed to any locale; and the secularization of society, which has undermined the traditional values about work and family that have underpinned grassroots capitalism from its very origins.”

FT: Again it isn’t the fact of globalization and increasing automation that’s at fault, but rather the conditions imposed by Socialism that caused these new and distressing phenomena to become vital to the survival of Industry, itself. Also, the well-documented phenomenon of FUTURE SHOCK has had everyone in a tizzy since the Sick-sties. Science and technology have been progressing at such rapid rates people can’t begin to keep up. Some of this “progress” has occurred as a defense against the strictures of Socialism, but also the list to conquer new fields takes on a life of its own. Scientists rarely stop to consider the moral and social ramifications of their discoveries. The Frankenstein Model is not so far from the truth after all.

”The great British notion of idea of working hard and succeeding through sheer pluck — an idea also embedded in the U.K.’s former colonies, such as the U.S. — has been largely devalued.”

FT: REALLY? Gee! I might never have noticed that if you hadn’t told us, Mr. Klotkin.

”... the left’s favorite panacea, a revival of the welfare state, fails to address the central problem of shrinking opportunities for social advancement. ...”

FT: And isn’t that exactly what I -- and the entire Conservative-Libertarian Movement have been nattering on about for the past two decades, sir? Please tell us something we haven’t already know for ages.

” ... modern society cannot run according to the individualist credo of Ayn Rand; economic systems, to be credible and socially sustainable, must deliver results to the vast majority of citizens. If capitalism cannot do that expect more outbreaks of violence and greater levels of political alienation ...

FT: Wanna bet Klotkin is a leftist? That sounds remarkably like a threat to me. Sounds like he thinks we ought to keep ponying up from the empty till in order to stave of Insurrection. Well, there won’t be any winners in that struggle. The “little folk” will have won their ultimate victory. The entire planet will become one gigantic gulag -- or worse -- a nuclear desert. How can you hold us up at gunpoint and expect to get anything out of pockets that were emptied long ago by “Progressive” policies? We’re fast approaching the pace where there just AIN’T anything more to give.

Damn, I'm just one lucky SOB! Thanks for clarifying the fact that I had nothing to do with.

" she was closer to Marx than you imagine ..."

You mean because her real name was Rosenbaum, Ducky?

The Fountainhead was hardly inspired by Marxism. It's a paean to The Individual. The Individual as Hero, because he remains true to his artistic vision and professional integrity, despite the pressures of GroupThink and the promise of riches, fame and glory in exchange for conformity. Architect Howard Roark pays a heavy price for staying true to himself -- but he gets the girl in the end.

So Rand was anti-Bourgeois taste and middle-class morality, she despised Philistinism, and like most Jews she hated Jesus Christ because He stood for humility and meekness as the ultimate source of strength. Rand of course, made a fetish of displaying her arrogance and contempt for the masses.

So, yes she was something like the Marxists, because of her hostility, hyper-critical attitude and boundless selfishness, but how you could claim she was a "Communist," I cannot imagine.

Rand's Objectivism, I think, is Capitalism unfettered by Christian morality. Bad shit, as the kids would say today.

FYI: Here's an opposing view on electronic advances in communication. Apparently, the IT phenomenon facilitates Orwellian-style Despotism even better than it does personal rebellion against The System:

"The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."

Over the distance brightly, brightly?
Only the sun on their weapons, dear,
As they step lightly.

What are they doing this morning, morning?
Only their usual manoeuvres, dear,
Or perhaps a warning.

O why have they left the road down there,
Why are they suddenly wheeling, wheeling?
Perhaps a change in their orders, dear,
Why are you kneeling?

O haven't they stopped for the doctor's care,
Haven't they reined their horses, horses?
Why, they are none of them wounded, dear,

It must be the farmer so cunning, so cunning?
They have passed the farmyard already, dear,
And now they are running.

O where are you going? Stay with me here!
Were the vows you swore deceiving, deceiving?
No, I promised to love you, dear,
But I must be leaving.

And their eyes are burning.

>morality can not exist without freedom

Exactly right. Without agency (freedom), there is no ability to choose between right, wrong, or anything else. Regardless of the specific system, morality implies that there is also immorality, and vice versa. One requires the opposing other. Otherwise, it would merely be one big clump that is neither morality nor immorality.

For example, if I'm forced to give my property to poor people, I haven't done a good, moral thing. I have merely been acted upon, like a part of a machine that is driven by other parts of the machine. On the other hand, if I have the choice to give or refrain from giving, and I determine that it is wise to give to a certain individual, and I choose to give, then I have made a moral choice.

If I have no choice, my actions are neither good nor evil, neither moral nor immoral. They may be beneficial or damaging for somebody, but those actions do not make me moral or immoral.
