Maps and Territory

Maps and Territory

"The map is not the territory." It's both simple, and difficult to unpack. It's also related to the old saw about "the difference between theory and practice." The short version is that the "map", the model we hold in our heads, the very language that we use, has a relationship to objective and underlying reality, but it isn't actually the reality. It's an abstraction. A roadmap you look at on paper or on a screen isn't the road itself, and may not even be accurate if anyone made mistakes in the surveying or transcription, or if construction has been done…

Counting Ballots

Counting Ballots

First of all - Razor has a video up on bitchute regarding the election, and the fact that, if the Democrats get away with it, they will have effectively removed both the soap box via "hate speech" bannings in social media and the public square, and teh ballot box as ways to peacefully change the system. People can bitch about "no evidence" - meaning until the MSM and a legal system that has already joyfully allowed steps that dilute the real vote acknowledge it, and not actual evidence that something was fishy - all they like. I only need to…

Reconciliation? Hah.

Reconciliation? Hah.

Reconciliation? Don't make me Laugh I listened to the supposed victory speech by the presumptive Democratic president and vice-president elect (Kamal-Joe?), and I have one thing to say about the message about working together going forward. Bullshit. I'll ignore the peans to glass ceilings and implied feminist / patriarchy / systemic racism myths about how the only thing keeping Kamala out of office and other minorities out of success was eebil straight white men (but I repeat myself). I'll also ignore the arrogant, congratulatory, and utterly condescending attitudes of many of Biden's supporters. Furthermore, for now, I'll ignore the explicit callouts for…

Roundup

Roundup

It's been a while, and I've accumilated a few odds and ends that don't call for a full post. Hate is bad. So we are told. Of course, the same people will gladly tell us that "White Lives Don't Matter". I know, I know, they'll tell you that it's not "white lives" as in "the lives of white people," but instead "white lives" as in "lives lived as if you were white" - she even somewhat clarified it.  Leaving aside you'd think that a college professor would be aware of the implications of her choice of words, AND that if…

Lies and Consequences - Game Theory and Decision Trees

Lies and Consequences - Game Theory and Decision Trees

One thing that's clear in a lot of cases involving violence is that a lot of people are ust idiots. This isn't even about the willingness to believe the narrative of "peaceful" protesters even as buildings burn down and businesses are looted, or the willingness to buy the manufactured set-up because the picture of the cop striking (back at) the (totally peaceful, man) protester is not a set-up at all. There are a lot of people who think stupid shit; take "why do they have to aim for the chest," or "can't they just wound him?" as common examples. Take…

Lies and Consequences - (Only the) Black Lives (Who's Death We Can Blame on Racism) Matter (When We Can Cynically Wave the Bloody Shirt to Advance Communism).

Lies and Consequences - (Only the) Black Lives (Who's Death We Can Blame on Racism) Matter (When We Can Cynically Wave the Bloody Shirt to Advance Communism).

Three things you'll have troubles convincing normies, especially anyone who still thinks Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown are innocent victims of racism, because that was the media narrative from all the "balanced" news outlets like CNN: Antifa exists and isn't just a fringe bunch of protestors but chronically uses personal and property violence. Yes, even after they took over Soymalia, built a wall, gunned up, and want ID/paperwork. BLM is a commie front that isn't about the black men who's deaths they wave like a bloody shirt. Their founding myth and purpose are lies. The name itself is morally…

Lies and Consequences - Privilege

Lies and Consequences - Privilege

As I started pointing out in my last post, we already know the Left doesn't care about truth. As good little post-modernists, they only believe that power exists. One consequence of that is that pointing out the hypocrisy of the left is usually a waste of time, except as leverage to point out what their true motives are, or that they are lying through their teeth. "But you believe in principles, right?" Yup. And I believe in reciprocity. The unpacked Christian Golden Rule, or what Taleb would call the silver rule.  If someone shows me he has no intention of…

Lies and Consequences - Setups

Lies and Consequences - Setups

One of the things that should be plain to see, yet isn't, is the degree to which the left sets things up so that heads, they win, tails, you lose. Take "Black Lives Matter." Any pushback to the group for the fact that only black lives matter to them, and worse, that only the ones they can cynically blame on racism to beat whites over the head with moral superiority matter, is replied to with accusations that you don't care about black people - an accusation that can lose you your job, and worse. They won't let you…
