As we sit here, waiting for the other shoe to drop, almost weekly, if not daily, I field the question “Why isn’t anyone doing anything yet?” This is usually followed by wails that we’ll do nothing that we’ll just sit here and take it.
There are two things to take into account. The first is that most people aren’t us. Most people aren’t political junkies who know every stupid, unjust and just plain suicidal executive order coming from on high, from the office of the vice-roi of the middle kingdom installed over us.
The second is the shock part of shocked disbelief. Which tends to delay reactions quite a bit.
On the first one “but how can they not know?” Well, because most of our media is and has been devoted to lying to the people. They are the propaganda arm of international socialism, drumming madly for their billionaire owners, who somehow have failed to read a single word of history and think they’ll end up on top.
No, forgive me. It’s not that. It’s that they don’t think at all. They want to be accepted with the “best” people, who at their level are the old aristocratic families of Europe, who of course are all on the spectrum of socialism/communism.
What our idiot noveau riche have failed to absorb is that these more inbred and pedigreed mental midgets might not know why they support the bullshit anymore, but it all started in the early 20th century with their being convinced communism was inevitable and putting on wolf suits before they were eaten by the wolves.
So we get back to the idiot millionaires and billionaires (hi Bernie!) are stupid and have never read history. After all they made lots of money in various ways that have nothing to do with learning history, so why should they bother.
And below them are the scrambling multitudes of the upper middle class who ape what they view as the beliefs of their betters and — when they attended college — the “smart people” who in turn were taught by the fossils of the 20th century that communism was inevitable and that all smart people are communist.
All of which amounts to: most of the people have not yet found out what Zhou Bai den has been signing at warp speed, or what it saddles us with. Fear not. These people are very very stupid, bordering on mentally slow, and they will make sure everyone knows, soon enough. Why, they’re proud of it.
People are already finding out retail, anyway. Very retail. As in, they are finding out every price is going up, and what was their very nice lifestyle is now evaporating before their eyes, as is any hope of getting better.
While we’re trying to effect our escape to Free America, we find that houses are getting sold from under us at speed. Now, part of this is simply that now that we can work from anywhere, most of us are trying to escape the metropolises that we were forced to live in. Though in my case, I’ll confess I wanted to live in Denver, and wouldn’t leave except for mentally retarded Polis having made it a hell on Earth with his own Middle-Kingdom inspired (Yes, I’m sure. You don’t get that retarded without help) Executive Orders that are making our city a mini-San-Francisco. And more on that later, because the Middle Kingdom itself is mentally handicapped as are all totalitarian regimes and is riding for a bruising fall they don’t see coming.
Anyway, I suspect the other reason for the scramble to small towns and hamlets is that you can buy a house outright for the profit in one of the houses we own, and all of us are seeing the belt tightening heading for us at speed. The problem being of course with those who can’t escape (and more on that later) because their jobs can’t be done remote. Many of them have already been raped by 2020 and 2021, and it will only get worse.
So, people haven’t really seen the damage yet. except for those who have: us and people slightly more aware than the rest. And we’re all sitting here with clenched fists, partly paralyzed by shock.
One of the things I read while I’m very depressed (thankfully I haven’t got that low in this last year. It’s more of a slow-burn depression) is true crime.
There is a technique to kidnapping someone or inflicting violence on them. You have to hit them very fast with the absolutely unthinkable, because it paralyzes them. You know, kidnap that heiress and rape her right off the bat, or starve her, or lock her in a closet. Or worse, that heir.
There is a reason those of us who have found ourselves in violent situations tell you that you have to vividly imagine it. If you can get a VR set, practice punching people in the face.
Oh, I don’t remember much of an hesitation — though after 35 years of peace I wonder if it would be easy — but I grew up in a rough and tumble time and place where 14 year old farm hands wouldn’t hesitate to try to corner a 6 year old girl in a back alley (Well, I did learn why that alley was forbidden, even if it was a short cut. And no, I have no idea what he wanted, and it might have been as “innocent” as wanting to beat me, because he could.) I learned to fight like a cornered cat before I ever heard of that as a fighting technique. (And surprise worked for me too. He never expected a carefully watched middle class little girl to scratch, bite, hit, and start pounding on him with a rock as soon as she could grab one. So he was distracted long enough for me to run out of the alley.)
But you guys are– Well, most of you grew up in cushioned and carefully protected conditions, particularly the women. So you aren’t conditioned to hit back. Your reaction to violence, particularly massive violence is usually to freeze. You can’t visualize hitting back. In the times that are coming I enjoin you, please, to visualize it. And as I said, if you can get VR and something where you have to fight.
America in a way, as nations go, is the pampered 21st century young lady, who’s never been treated with anything but respect. As the rough hand-servants of the evil Winnie the Xi hit her on the face and tear her clothes off, she’s standing, paralyzed, incapable of movement.
And I bet you money the ass monkeys of Emperor Xi think that it will stay that way, if not progress to Stockholm syndrome. They’re already started hitting her for daring to talk back, blowing it up as if an act of evil.
But the thing is, this America is not about to join the Symbionese Liberation Army. Look, let’s be real. Patty Hearst, as the daughter of “good families” had already been primed with the idea that she was guilty of inominable sins, for being born white and rich. Her family probably already displayed that sentiment for public consumption. That you know, they were on the side of the downtrodden, or some crap. Like all the rich families. Sorry, rich and stupid families. The two don’t always go together, but they tend to after a few generations.
America is not like that. Sure, the America that the Turtle Boys of Xi know is. They go to college, and learn that America is a terrible place and guilty of everything, and learn to hate their own homeland and their own people. Sure, if America in general were composed of them, we would be pucked.
America isn’t. Even the children of the middle class who learned this bullshit in college usually outgrow it within a few years. And are outgrowing it very fast, as the Wokeness and the gospel of New Marx are a) completely insane b) pushing everywhere and giving us no break.
America in general, though, takes her liberties for granted. And having an election stolen as blatantly as this one was is shocking. Kind of like being raped. She doesn’t believe it’s happened. She might not believe it till it happens again. Maybe. I mean, look, 2 years is a long time, and my gut still says by summer. And my guess is by summer these arrant fools are going to be stomping around trying to force us to obey.
Obey what? Well, there was Fauci claiming that if we don’t behave we can’t have a 4th of July celebration. My reaction to this is to say Fauci has just surrendered his citizenship with that claim and should be put on a plane post haste to Cuba, Venezuela or North Korea.
So they’ll try to make us obey. The year that was not only got us in shock over how far they’ll go to abuse us — and as more people wake up to the fact this was all a bullshit not particularly bad flu virus, the more anger builds — but it also got them addicted to the high of abusing us. And that means they need to keep amping it.
They are already sending us our own money and demanding we be grateful in advance of raising our taxes. Student loans are not to be forgiven and, oh, yeah, your eviction that has been suspended will be allowed to happen — they say June — as well as the foreclosure. And they’re throwing their weight around and saying we have to stay locked up because of “climate change.”
And the teachers don’t want to go back to teaching, and apparently some retail unions think their members should be able to abuse customers who don’t obey them. And the airlines… Don’t get me started.
Look, it’s like this: they think that by shocking us, we’ll be still forever, and perhaps try to be on their side.
But you have to remember they’re stupid Marxists. Marxism doesn’t deal with people or reality. It deals with “classes” of people, whom they believe will all react in prescribed ways. And the Gramscian rewrite making the classes into “races” is no better. For instance, it piously preaches that the darker your skin, the more Marxist, and then they’re completely shocked that Latin immigrants aren’t internationalists, that black people don’t embrace the brotherhood of the dark skinned, that–
On top of that, they don’t understand economics. And that includes the non-divine Winnie the Xi, Red emperor of the middle kingdom. He has a vague idea money comes from somewhere, but not where, and it’s probably just “redistributed.” At least in his head. And it’s not like anyone will tell the head of a fascist, genocidal empire that he’s full of shit.
This partly explains the shit show that is Chinese economy.
What it doesn’t explain is why our millionaires and billionaires (ah!) are equally Marxism-demented and don’t see where this is going. They are so dazzled with the idea of “sales to China” and of reselling here goods made with Chinese labor, they have failed to see things through. Mostly they’ve failed to see that Chinese economics is mostly make believe and mirrors; that they don’t have a middle class to buy anything; that our own middle class is getting slaughtered in this, metaphorically, at least for now.
I mean, look, how can they tax people who just lost their businesses, their jobs, will soon lose the value in their urban residences, and in general have nothing to give? You can’t take blood from a turnip.
Worse, in the US, a lot of us will buy a place outright and hunker down, doing the minimum needed to keep body and soul together, because why work more for the taxman?
Even worse, most of the people who can will go underground. I think it was in 2000 the last time I was offered half the price for a cash job. Of course I took it. Look, I don’t know why the workman was doing it, okay? Maybe he just needed cash in hand soonest. And besides, it’s none of my business. But I also know it used to be a standard offer for a while, particularly in the seventies. I read novels and bios from that time.
Why has no one bothered the last twenty years? At a guess because taxes haven’t been confiscatory. Yet. You wait. Half price for cash will become a thing. As will “yard sales” which might or might not contain crafts and items that are being resold at a big discount.
I’ve seen this before. I once lived in a country where practically everyone worked under the table.
The idiots don’t see this coming. This is unthinkable. To them taxes are the minimal due of the government. You’re lucky they let you keep anything.
But it’s about to make the American economy very, very strange. And practically invisible.
Now remember that America produces most of the food for the world. Sure, sure. His serene representative of Emperor Xi, Zhou Bai Den, is already sending our food by the kiloton to China at bargain prices. Don’t believe me? Search the price of corn flour and rice. Oh, and if you need either, stock up. Soy too.
But how long till you can buy ‘x amount’ cash, no questions at farms? Heck, I bet you anything you already can, we’re just not in that sort of area. And there’s co-ops where you buy the stuff in advance of planting and–
And high taxes for no reason but to punish us will take the economy completely underground. The food for exports? Oops? I guess it was a bad agricultural year.
As for the lock downs and willful destruction of big cities? Well, you know, Chinese were already buying real estate in our big cities by the block. Why? Well, it was better than ghost cities in China, right?
And by having Turtle Boy Polis, say, destroy Denver, it just means the subjects of his serene red emperor Xi can buy that real estate at bargain prices. Buy the whole city! And then when people come back–
And there hangs the sting on the back of the scorpion.
You see, people adapt very slowly to change. They can’t visualize change. There is a thing called “the bias of normalcy”. Which in a way is what is keeping the people ripping the country apart from the inside on this side of the grass.
But that same bias of normalcy is keeping them making plans that can’t come true, because things don’t stay as they are, once you destroy their underpinnings. Of course, Marxists are people of the system, who talk a lot about change but actually can’t process that anything changes, beyond the first step, and the way they want it to change.
So, Turtle Emperor Xi can’t imagine that once he gets his vice-roi to destroy the American economy, he won’t be king of the world. Surely, he can rule us, and steal from us and–
And the prosperity they’ve eked out by selling to America will be gone, if America doesn’t have the money for cheap Chinese crap. My guess is the gravy train is already slowing, but he wont’ see it till it stops. Till the other shoe drops.
And our serene traitor idiots, also don’t get it. They don’t get that people aren’t going to dutifully continue giving them money. The fates of all the Woke and Broke company should have awakened them, except they all lie to each other.
And the teachers fail to realize that not only can’t they keep their cushy work-from-home where it should be “work” arrangement, but the old ones are unlikely to come back. Because each week this goes on, another person says “f*ck it” and heads for the hills of homeschooling.
And the retail unions fail to realize that if their members harass the public, the public will go elswhere.
And the governors and mayors merrilly destroying their own cities, in the service of their foreign masters and cronies don’t realize that people can now work anywhere, thanks to the covidiocy, and they aren’t getting us back once we escape. Even retail and medical and others who can’t work remote are starting to eye small and still sane cities and towns.
As for the so called “tech lords” what kind of idiots, having made their fortune on the crest of rapid change, think that tech will stay the same long enough for them to control it? Or that their attitudes haven’t already started a million competitors working through the process? It will take time, but they are seriously going to regret they’re stupidity. Supposing they live to see it, of course. And I’d place no bets on that, since they’ve been financing Antifa, which is inevitably going to get shafted, because it has to be, either from the top, or because pissed citizens end them. And then Antifa, being communists will of course turn on the rich.
The future is distributed. And secretive. And not theirs to control.
Their continuous insistence that the future will be the same as the past does them no favors, either. It accelerates the whole mess.
Oh, yeah, and those kidnappers that shock the victim with unthinkable attacks? For that to work, you have to have a compliant victim, full control of the victim, and the ability to end him/her before he/she ends you.
In America? They have none of that. And they should get it through their heads that failing that, the delayed reaction is three times as strong.
When the other shoe falls, it will be an Earth shattering Kaboom. Do try to position yourself so you’re not squished.
We’re going to need you for the rebuild.
