Pedro's Corner

Postby Pedro I Rengel » Tue Mar 19, 2019 12:15 am

So we can all agree, I get a little too easily worked up about slight disagreements I have with people, like there are no superior races and freedom is more important than fairness. It on the whole doesn't bother me, but when I deal with persons that break the "bag of rocks" barrier of intelligence then it really grinds my gears, and I don't handle it well.

So I will post here, thoughts and things. Haters welcome, friends welcome. Probably I will end up talking alone like iambiguous.

Welcome... To Pedro's Corner.

So reality seems to be catching up to what I've been saying about socialists. White supremacy is an intrinsically socialist concept, it is an attempt to ground the need for an authoritarian school teacher order on a fact. For straight commies it is Hegel's dialectic a la Marx, the unstoppable course of history which I guess nonetheless has to be helped along? Anyway, some people find Hegel a little too in-the-air, and like all phenomenologists he is in fact all air, so they look for things they can see and touch. The shift from the worker to the white man highlights also two essencial ingredients: hate, there must always be a group to hate (the parasitic capitalists for the marxists, the enemy of the white man for the supremacists), and there must always be a group which is relatively homogenous in contrast to the hated group for whom life will be made easy, and of which obviously the proponent is a part. They understand, like Nietzscheans, that life is conflict but, unlike nietzscheans, they feel it as a burden. There is always a utopia in which conflict is eliminated. In stark contrast, of course, to capitalism, which is based on conflict, requires it to function.

Anyway, I did call it before it started becoming explicit. Socialists and islamists are aligning. The truth is Islam today is not a straight continuation of Islam proper, which is bullshit in its own way, but a combination of it with Nazism, which is where true islamist militancy was born. Before that, islam was used to justify ruling classes, like we still see in Saudi Arabia. But when they got a load of those Nazis, and leaning on the heavy handedness of how important the ruling classes had said Islam was, they created Ilhan Omar.

by the way, did some research on Rohm, and it is lovely to confirm even further that Naazism didn't at all USE socialism or communism as a way to decieve people into the straight opposite, but is itself socialism and communism. The reason marxists and fascists are so violent against eachother is the same reason slightly different Christian orthodoxies were: they are essencially fighting over fine details. You would think those would matter little, but when you are fighting for righteusness itself, Good as goodyness gets, any slightest deviation is blasphemy. It is worse than apostacy.

Fucking Nazis.

I also ran into the Charlottesville thing that a poster here brought up recently. It made me laugh cause I realized I remembered it but had made little note of it, funny how the socialist propaganda psychology works. It was when there was a thing in Charlottesville, where some red neck neo-nazis were present, which is mostly just a sign of discontent among the rednecks, pretty harmless, and Trump basically said "look, I get it. I obviously don't support the nazis though, but I know they got friends who aren't nazis and also feel slighted and I support THOSE guys.' Basically trump was and is erasing the idea that it's ok to brand people white trash. They'se people man. Fuck. The real nazis, the real danger, is ezzelsewhere.

another thing driving socialism is the finished product. They want a finished product, something handed down from God all perfect and done. Like a socialist person I went to a Picasso exhibition with, she's a pretty smart damn person. We would talk about the subtleties of Picasso and she would be right up there. But added to the exhibition (this socialist mindset we live in) was some pictures of like black people with like, I dunno, it felt like trying to fit in. Like we can be artists too. It was very forced and annoying. She loved it. Obviously not because she liked the aesthetics REALLY, I mean she was making subtle points about Picasso a second earlier, but because she couldn't stand the tension of the historical development of black Americans (the continent). She wanted us all to already be integrated, boom, injustices solved and integrated, finished product. I was like no. That's not real. Rap is real. She couldn't stand it, the dirtyness, black people actually listening to themselves and making art out of what they feel like. Not, VERY much not trying to fit in. She couldn't stand the idea that such a violent thing cannot just have happened. And shit, if all people from all genealogies (and I don't just mean DNA) suddenly had no conflicts, that would SUCK. We need conflict, it is the one and only point of life.

Or, like Picasso said, he never in his life finished a painting.

A question people don't think about: Who will take the reigns of the capitalism?

It used to be boring old racist men, but they have been all but wiped out by the hippies. We have all heard the socialist alternative. But from the capitalist side, who will take over this personality-less beast?

This is the main political question Ive been asking from around 2011 to 2016.

Since November of that year the question became a different one.
Slightly more hopeful of having an answer.

It used to be boring old racist men, but they have been all but wiped out by the hippies. We have all heard the socialist alternative. But from the capitalist side, who will take over this personality-less beast?

Not just one person. Some magnanimous initiative.

Imagine how embarrassing it would be if someone put up your art together with Picasso because of your skin colour.

So Rengel, where in Montreal you profiled yourself as being white, and now you seem to profile as that particular category that white supremacists and white inferioralists use in their discourse; the nonwhite.

I don't think this category exists. I refuse it. I could never identify a Han Chinese with a Venezuelan or a Nigerian. Nor would the Han Chinese. So Im just asking, do you really find a kind of home in this non-white category?

Im asking because I do not have the association of being White. Maybe thats because Ive been outcast about three hundred times in my life and always there were whites involved. I don't feel White People behave as if I am part of their club or something. And I do have the impression this goes for more white people.

And I also think this goes for a lot of black people.

I just don't believe in race.

I believe in subtler, nicer things, like tribes. Maybe thats just because Im rooted in two very nice tribes. Maybe White-ism is a marker for people who have no properties other than a light skin. I don't know. I fucking hate the categorization of mankind by skin colour. I think whichever way you look at it, this is a problem.

Another thing to point that out. Do you think a black dude from California is much alike to someone from Nigeria? I don't think so. I think that person is more likely, in all respects, to resemble a white dude from California.

Values define an entity. An entity is truly defined by how this entity responds to things, by what he responds to and how, and maybe why. Not so much by how others respond to him, even though that does go a long way in defining his own responses. But least of all a person is defined by how much light his skin reflects or absorbs. Not a priori.

Im not with promethean in believing in iq differences between races. At most in terms of being conditioned to certain types of puzzles, maybe. I believe rather in an IQ difference between Capitalists and Socialists. Id put any amount of money on that difference being very vastly to the advantage of Capitalist, by maybe 20 points. Whereas between white and black Americans... I just don't see it.

Of course nazis think Im not white simply because I am Jewish. Then, the other type of antisemite thinks Im double-white because Im Jewish.

I hope this illustrates a bit of the beginning of the problem I am having with the use of this terminology. Its just ugly and dumb.

I think we pretty much agree.

Maybe what you are alluding to by saying I have identified as white, which is slightly more funny than it is disgusting, is that I do believe, within that awesome description of identity rooted in value you gave, that genetics tell stories, stories of development of value conflict or value expansion or whatnot. This includes DNA, but also a vast other things. But even in terms of DNA, Nazis are retards. There is more DNA difference between some African lineages than there is between European ones and Asian ones. But DNA very much does not exist in isolation, it is just one facet of the great river of genealogy.

This also ties in with the finished product thing. Whenever I have ventured into discussing genetics, it has always been in a sexual way. A celebration of conflicts between lines, how every line is itself a battle between lines. Like a painting being ever painted. Nazis don't actually like sex, they just want the finished product White Man.

In so far as I ever use the term white people, it is to make fun of a mentality. Fucking white people.

So on the whole, I agree. I don't think DNA is silly to consider, like I for example fantacize about adding some color to my progeny. But there is nothing here to do with identity, lol, or anything other than I think dark skin looks nice.

And even further, I have come to realize that capitalism renders the whole topic sort of moot. Whoever can pull of cool and rich is win. Nothing is given.

That was also my question regarding the reigns of capitalism. I'm not wondering about a specific person or persons or group or groups. I wonder rather about the identity of cool. Cool IS personality, the only thing people identify with in terms of personality is what they can concieve of being cool, everything else is discard.

Thanks to hippies, of course, since cool had for a long time been replaced by pius, though thanks to the stealth Roman worship in Christianity through Catholicism there was always some latent cool, which is why we now ask the question what will be the cool that overtakes the head of Capitalism. We are still sort of in the vacuum space after the death of pius, and socialism is a kind of vapor left behind. We will either be poisoned by this vapor and die, or find cool. I, with Capable, believe the latter.

Lol, winning.

My favourite line:

"'Diplomatically, Mr. Grenell is a complete failure. This entire thing seems like the behavior of a naughty schoolboy,' added Carsten Schneider, parliamentary manager for the Social Democrat party."

Why does reality INSIST on verifying my points?

Shit, I'm more African in thought process and outlook than most black gringos. No fault of their own, just the Spanish attitude towards the culture of the African slave workers was a little less genocidal than the English one, so a lot of it survived and it just permeated everybody that has been born there.

Yes, this seems very true to me.

Im not sure about the occasion where you said to me in so many words that you are whiter than white. I'm willing to think i misunderstood.

"We are still sort of in the vacuum space after the death of pius, and socialism is a kind of vapor left behind. We will either be poisoned by this vapor and die, or find cool. I, with Capable, believe the latter."

Well said.
Of couse I find myself too be that cool.
Whether I will be found is not entirely up to me. But still mostly it is.

Praise Odin.

Next order of business: The Central Bank Conundrum

From Seeking Alpha's Wall street Breakfast:

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note is ticking lower, down 2 bps to 2.59%, as investors await a policy decision by the Federal Reserve. The U.S. central bank is widely expected to keep rates steady and lower its "dot plot," boosting U.S. stock index futures overnight by 0.2%. Jerome Powell has also signaled an announcement on when the Fed will end the runoff of its $4T portfolio later this year, as well as disclosing the right combination of Treasurys to hold.



The problem with central bank rates is that there is no one in particular that is directly affected by whether they make a profit or not. We are obviously all affected in terms of the inmense amount of money this involves, how it alters the dynamics of markets, but there are no direct stakeholders in them turning a profit. Or, put another way, private capital is not invested in them making a profit. So you understand, it's not that investors don't understand the benefits for the economy as a whole of the Fed raising rates, it's just that there is no way for them to capitalize on it. Higher rates only means less money, so their stocks go down and other stocks go down and it is a big problem for everybody.

This is really why it's so hard for the fed to raise rates without sending the whole thing spiraling. Even though many studies suggest these rates feed all the wrong kind of company, what they call "zombie" companies that basically produce nothing and make money on the rate differential, nobody can afford for all prices to suddenly raise. Unless perhaps people could themselves make money off of higher Fed rates directly.

It's obviously tricky, because without central banks we have no recourse in the case of market crashes, but this situation is a little crazy. There ain't no free money, no free lunches, and we all pay for these low rates. Sayn'?

More from the Wall Street Breakfast:

Two indicators for how trade-sensitive sectors are faring in Europe reported quarterly results today. German carmaker BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY) warned of significant profit falls in 2019, while announcing a sweeping €12B cost savings plan to help offset higher tech investment and currency costs. However, French luxury goods house Hermes said it had not observed any change in sales trends so far this year after posting a 15% rise in net profit for 2018 to €1.4B.

I like what this says about the state of things.

And finally, when socialism strikes:

Attempting to soften the blow from a damaging political crisis, Canada's government has presented a pre-election budget that offers over $10B in new, short-term spending, spread across a range of constituencies. It also plans to increase federal bond issuance by almost 20% next fiscal year to C$119B ($89.1B). After leading the G7 in 2017 with growth of 3%, Canada’s economic expansion slowed to 1.8% in 2018 and is expected to remain below 2% over the next two years.

Dutch Senate elections today. A new party, Forum voor Democratie, an intellectual antiglobalist party, got 10 out of 75 seats, making it the second largest just after governing VVD. I was one of the votes they got.
This is quite unusual.
The coalition government is now short a few seats in the senate.
And it wasnt as if Rutte was entirely useless even. He sustained a quite crafty international politics attracting much of the Brexit fallout, now apparently 90 percent of European transactions run through this country. He also subtly pointed out to Trump that that nice tower in San Fransisco belongs to a Dutch insurance company.

That renewable energy / organic whateverthefuck hippie shit is more dangerous than you might think. As I say this, I am actually a fan of both, lol, but as science and fun shit, not policy or much less ideology. As those two, it is a vast, vast danger to our markets and our freedom. The referendum thing is also sketchy, but might be better than the oligarchy that crops up from Europe style party coalitions.

But the pluses far outweight that. Smart motherfuckers if judged by the wikipedia. I'm for it.

Though really, I have to see where they stand on geopolitics, and no amount of "we stand here or here" will do. Actual posturing and participation will determine. I actually think geopolitics is about 90% of what governments are accountable for and what direct my vote.

Actually I don't vote. Fuck the bastards. But you get the point. They get my moral support.

Try to understand where I come from. In terms of direct democracy and relying on votes on specific issues, Chavez was one of the most democratic motherfuckers ever. They didn't need to start cheating until way after he died. Well they cheated in terms of like utilization of state resources, but not directly.

It's sketchy. But you know what? It's like Bannon says. I can drop the noise for the signal. Let's just see what the signal is.

Good luck, I hope it goes well. We could use a new ally. The way you have described Holland to me, the political atmosphere, it would be. Well, great. Just great.
