Sunday


(Rachel Dolezel isn't black.)
 
Yesterday, the Dragon Lady served beef for dinner.  The meal was quite bland.  But I didn't complain.  I just smiled and ate my vittles like a good little automaton.  I'm wonderful that way.  The sun's always shining in my neck of the woods.  I washed the meat down with several glasses of generic cola.  I'm a huge fan of sugary soft-drinks.

I watched Aquarius.  David Duchovny plays a Los Angeles detective named Sam.  Sam's trying to rescue a young attractive female from the evil clutches of Charles Manson.  In the latest episode, Sam comes close to beating Manson to death.  His young partner pulls him away just before the final fatal blow is delivered.

I paid homage to the Christ God.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees.  No big surprise.  I'm not some filthy atheist.  I asked Jesus to save my son from technology.  The kid's addicted to all the modern gadgets.  He has an Ipod, an Ipad, a smartphone, a computer, a laptop, etc.  My boy shakes like a junkie when he doesn't get his daily fix.

I went to bed at 11 p.m.  I didn't dream.  I woke up at 6 a.m. and turned on Fox News.  Rachel Dolezel works in Washington state for the NAACP.  In fact, she's the leader of that particular chapter.  Rachel's been passing as black for decades.  Her skin color garnered her a full four-year ride to Howard University.  It turns out that Ms. Dolezel is whiter than freshly fallen snow.  Go figure.

I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break.  Peacekeeping troops from the United Nations have been caught exchanging food for sex with the locals.  These crimes are taking place in some of the poorest countries in the world--such as Haiti and Liberia.  It doesn't get any lower than that.  We truly live in a world consumed by sin.

Anyway, it's time for the song du jour.  Here's Keeping Up With the Jonesin' by Jamie Johnson.  God bless.

  1. U.N. peacekeepers have been scum for a long time, especially when it comes to sex. There was a movie made about how they ran a child prostitution ring in Eastern Europe (with a lot of looking the other way by American officials, too.) It's what happens when you put poorly paid men with guns in areas where they don't speak the local language, there's no government authority to rein them in, and they have the power to do what they want. It's like FIFA with weapons. I like the idea of the United Nations, but it's turned out to be run by corrupt bastards -- remember Kurt Waldheim, who had been a Nazi, and he was head of the organisation in the 1970s? Scum at the top oozes down to the bottom, like in the U.S. government. I attribute it more to psychiatric problems, specifically sociopathy -- a brain defect causing lack of empathy for other human beings -- than I do to spiritual sources such as "sin." Science is the frame through which I view the world.

    1. How does science explain Nazi Germany? An entire nation suddenly becomes sociopathic? It's a mystery.

    2. No mystery to me, Mr. Smith. Science, history and psychology explain Nazi Germany perfectly, IMHO.

      First, the history. Germanic tribes had been fierce for 2,000 years before World War II. I've been slowly reading through "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" since 2007 (it's two volumes long, about 3,500 pages of small print in the 1938 edition I got from my dad's library when he died, and the complex 1700s prose style that Edward Gibbon used does not make for light reading.) A persistent theme is how barbarians from the north constantly plagued the civilised people of the Mediterranean. Alemanni, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Vandals, Franks, Lombards, Saxons -- they are just a few of the packs of wolves in human form that ripped into the edges of the soft people who had indoor plumbing. (The Asiatic Huns from the East and the Persians from what's now Iran were also formidable. Finally the Muslims knocked off the piss-weak Byzantine Empire, which was all the was left around Constantinople after Rome collapsed.)

      Point is, Germans have always been arse-kickers. My belief, which is racist and evolutionist, is that the proto-Germns who survived all those centuries of strife were the ones predisposed to be strong warriors. The effete pussies would not get to fuck the frauleins and pass on their effete genes. Only manly men got to breed! For the most part. This is a simplistic explanation. It also doesn't take into account the various German sub-cultures such as the martial Prussian culture in the north, the hickish Suebian farmers in the southwest near France, the industrially oriented Bavarians, etc. German was not a united nation for much of its history, but a bunch of competing kingdoms and shit, same as Italy post-Rome. Only in the 1800s did Germany unite and become dangerous again.

      BTW, one of the reasons Germans are so good at building cars is that their tribes had long been mobile cattle herders, moving stuff around in wagons. Transport was a cultural specialty. Wagons to cars, then to Panzers and Messerschmitts.

      Anyway, it's not like German suddenly got stroppy in 1939, or even World War I. They kicked France's arse in 1870, and a lot of Germans fought for and against Napoleon when he was dominating Europe and attempting to conquer Russia in the early 1800s. Don't forget the Hessian mercenaries that the Brits used against the Colonials during the American Revolution. Fighting was what those bastards DID!

    3. Part 2:

      Along comes World War I. Germany loses, narrowly. They had licked Russia, thanks to it falling apart and the Bolsheviks wanting peace so they could kill off the capitalists in their own turf. France wanted to get even for 1870, and Britain wanted to squelch the Germans, because the Krauts were trying to build their own overseas empire. So they put the screws to Germany. A people full of pride was humbled. Their noses were rubbed in shit. You read ZeroHedge, so you know about the hyperinflation. Imagine being in a country where you were patting yourself on the back because you had great philosophers, musicians and "kultur" (as they spelled it.) Then you get stomped in a war, everybody's calling you "Huns" (if you read history, the Huns, Genghis Khan and Tamerlane were so savage they should barely be considered human.) The Germans had 15 years of economic misery, most people wondering how they were going to keep from starving. So they were primed for a Hitler who could say "You're GREAT! We are superior to those other fuckers! We've been stomping them flat since Hermann the German obliterated three Roman legions in the battle of Teutoberger Wald in the Year 9!" (That was a favourite thing our Swiss banker in Zurich liked to talk about. He's the reason I got inspired to read "Decline and Fall.")

      So, humiliated culture of people who have a tradition of fighting wars. Guy comes along to tap into their anger (the psychology part of my point) and gives these speeches about "Germany, fuck yeah!" (Reference to "Team America, World Police" in case you didn't catch it.)

      Mob psychology is a strange, scary thing. When you have huge rallies, people lose their individuality and form a kind of hive mind. This also resonates with ZeroHedge, about the mob mentality of market movements. Joseph Goebbels learned from Edward Bernays, the American advertising man/propagandist, so he could whip the Germans into a frenzy. People were more naive then, not as savvy that they were being manipulated by the media. That helped them fall into sociopathy.

    4. Part 3:

      Then here's the part where you Christians come in. The anti-Semitism. Hating on Jews was hella popular for thousands of years. Even before Jesus, in about 475 BC a guy named Haman was a servant of King Xerxes, the Persian who tried to fry ancient Greece, the Spartans, etc. Haman had gathered all the Jews into Persia and he was going to genocide them at the time, but he got tricked out of it and was hanged himself. Jews get free again, woo-hoo! My Jewish ex-wife used to buy these pastries called "hamantaschen" (for "Haman's ears") that we'd eat at the Festival of Purim, which celebrates that deliverance. She wasn't Jewy religious; she just liked the pastry.

      When Constantine the Roman Emperor converted to Christianity, he and his successors went about wiping out the pagans. Jews got the chop too, because they denied Christ. Jews in Arabia shafted Mohammed because they would not agree with him when he said "I am the Messiah!" so the Muzzies have hated on 'em. During the Crusades, slaughtering Jews was almost as popular as massacring Mahometans. You're Protestant, right Mr. Smith? Martin Luther HATED him some Jews. And he was German.

      Anyway, I've beaten this topic into the ground enough. I see the arc of history and culture in many events. Science, psychology and economics play a part. The sadism of Nazi Germany does not puzzle me. It's all part of a pattern. Lots of other nations/civilisations did similar things. The Germans were more scientific about, left more records because of the modern mass media, and they happened closer to when you and I are living, so they stand out in our mind.

      I see a strong possibility that the United States will go the same way, when the Peak Oil/Climate Change/Debt Ponzi causes a collapse. If a vicious, charismatic leader appeals to American's wounded pride, after they've had a decade or more of eating dung, they could be persuaded to turn on blacks, Mexicans, Muslims, gays, maybe "useless eaters" such as Social Security moochers, who knows whom? That's one of the reasons I'll never return there.

      We're a sick species of brain-eating apes, Mr. Smith. Some try to rise above it, as you and the followers of Rabbi Joshua the kindly Hebrew philosopher do. Good onya! But a pox on everyone else. The sooner we wipe ourselves out, the better it will be for the animals we haven't extincted. They're savage too, but at least they don't know any better.

    5. We're a sick species because of sin. But that doesn't make us all psychopaths. Killing isn't completely genetic. It can also be learned.

    6. BTW, I read every word. You have a nice style. You should start a blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Smith.
