mircea_popescu asciilifeform because everyone knows the way to make silicon is by the dozen [00:27]
mircea_popescu craftmansheep! [00:27]
mircea_popescu "2. All police assets from Baltimore City and surrounding <<< the point of the king's police is to maintain the king's claims to sovereignity. it is not the police's job to protect you. you don't get to sue either the police generally or individual police officers for having failed to assist - even in places where you can sue ordinary citizens for same. [00:29]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform> and of course ethernet over coax somehow never happened << how not ? it's how i got broadband for a decade. "catv" [00:30]
* BingoBoingo has quit (Remote host closed the connection) [00:33]
decimation mircea_popescu: re: police < yeah I buy that, but it's often the case that the democratic police like to confuse the voters into thinking that they work for them [00:33]
mircea_popescu heh. was example earlier in the log about how "police work for them". was re three strikes ballot in ca. [00:33]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: how i got broadband for a decade << same [00:34]
* asciilifeform was poking phun at the imbecility of the camera thing [00:34]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform heh, so far nobody even compiles glibc. go away with your exotic temptations, fair lady. [00:34]
asciilifeform nobody - to a first approximation - wants to do fucking anything at all... [00:35]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: the point of the king's police is to maintain the king's claims to sovereignity << this was no mystery of any kind to the folks who first witnessed this marvellous invention. [00:35]
decimation asciilifeform: in theory, ip cameras could work as well as dumb analog-over-coax, but in practice the firmware sucks [00:36]
mircea_popescu the problem is that the king has no further good claims on sovereignity, and as such must now surrender the police. [00:36]
decimation yarvin thought that urban police depts. would make good rulers [00:37]
decimation given how they have to deal with reality as-is [00:37]
asciilifeform why not beggars then ? [00:37]
asciilifeform or rats, from sewers. [00:38]
mircea_popescu "7. Over 200 businesses, including at least 13 pharmacies, and up to a third of liquor stores, have been wiped from the face of the earth, many of them minority businesses which are uninsured and will not recover. This places the drug gangs in a position to expand the illegal economy in areas where businesses will not return—as they did not return after the 1968 riots—which offsets losses of territory recently suff [00:38]
mircea_popescu ered at the hands of Johns Hopkins Hospital and University buying up drug territory." [00:38]
decimation how many beggars in the us couldn't have a warm bed and meals - if willin to submit to charity [00:38]
mircea_popescu this guy has a pretty decent understanding of how this shit works. [00:38]
decimation I've been to johns hopkins in baltimore, it's in hell-hole ghetto land [00:39]
asciilifeform surrounded, today, by (discreet) guard booths [00:39]
mircea_popescu but the police shows up. [00:39]
mircea_popescu exactly. [00:39]
asciilifeform mega-posh campus, incidentally [00:39]
decimation johns hopkins is actually the largest employer in maryland [00:40]
asciilifeform makes the lawns of d.c. capitol, etc. look shabby. [00:40]
mircea_popescu "10. All whites I have spoken to have noted that blacks they normally come into contact with have been behaving with increased—or not before present—hostility. This has been noted by the author as well, with hard eye-contact and aggressive posturing evidenced by most black males I now encounter, where before that was a minority expression of about a third of such men." [00:40]
decimation all the other industry is long-gone [00:40]
asciilifeform decimation: last i checked it was nsa [00:40]
mircea_popescu this gonna be a warm summer. [00:40]

* assbot gives voice to BingoBoingo [00:42]
decimation mircea_popescu: the problem this guy (the blog author) has is that if he is too public about his point of view, the king's police will make an example of him [00:42]
assbot Baltimore's Violence Guy ... ( ) [00:42]
mircea_popescu someone invite him over. [00:42]
* t4nk has quit (Quit: QUIT) [00:45]
asciilifeform 206451 [00:47]
asciilifeform re: police irregularities: i'm still betting on the hypothesis that local police will be pissed on in propagandatron endlessly until finally entirely replaced (as planned) with centralized gendarmerie [00:51]
asciilifeform which will, naturally, follow 'federal equal opportunity employment' etc. [00:52]
decimation I'm not sure about such a coordinated plot, but it certainly is the case that urban police departments are independent power centers upon which usg frowns [00:52]
mircea_popescu yes, because you have this strange fetishistic attractor in your mental prognosticator. [00:52]
decimation we already have 'federal equal opportunity employment' [00:52]
asciilifeform and, the absolutely key soviet part, gendarme will be posted far from his home town [00:52]
mircea_popescu but no. baltimore/maryland is currently under an aliance of the underworld. they WILL drive out any and all statal enforcement, because that is what happens when the underworld decides to . [00:52]
mircea_popescu it's not accidental that my path to breaking 1984 was as i described it at the time. [00:53]
BingoBoingo asciilifeform: Mega-posh campus + medical school seems to thrive on medicaid like kudzu, local entity of that flavor is "BJC healthcare" [00:53]
mircea_popescu and for that matter, baltimore may well be the hole the night crawls through. [00:53]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: what does it mean to 'drive out statal enforcement' in a place that is run 100% on usg largesse ? [00:53]
mircea_popescu if detroit next copies them... [00:54]
asciilifeform and why was l.a. not the hole the night walks in through ? [00:54]
decimation "In the city, the entitlement pressure continues to ramp up, with the Whole Foods grocery store coming under fire for feeding national guardsmen that prevented their store from being looted. The ghettoites claim that the grocer should have been feeding the black students who lost their free school lunch on Tuesday, rather than the guardsmen who were protecting the grocer from these same juvenile delinquents. " [00:54]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform there is no such thing as "government largesse". [00:54]
asciilifeform l.a. had proper street war. [00:54]
mircea_popescu the government is that derpy kid in school. it doesn't give anything, the kids just take. [00:54]
asciilifeform (mega-recommend: watch the extant films from it. good quality shootouts, etc) [00:54]
mircea_popescu because la is too fragmented, apparently. [00:54]
BingoBoingo l.a. had the problem of firstness [00:54]
decimation mircea_popescu: but that approach fails when men with guns are willing to stand [00:54]
mircea_popescu also, perhaps. [00:54]
mircea_popescu decimation what men ? [00:55]
decimation there are few [00:55]
mircea_popescu why would you, or anyone stand for the usg ?! [00:55]
decimation that's the problem the men with guns have, isn't it [00:55]
mircea_popescu dea guys are just in it for the columbian whore parties / stolen goodies from evidence room. [00:55]
mircea_popescu it's not a problem, no. [00:55]
decimation 'the enemy of my enemy is still my enemy' [00:55]
* WolfGoethe has quit (Quit: Textual IRC Client: [00:55]
asciilifeform why would you, or anyone stand for the usg ?! << i can think of one reason - if alternative is surrender to orcs [00:56]
asciilifeform aka south africa [00:56]
mircea_popescu south africa HAS a government. [00:56]
mircea_popescu of usg's hand picking, no less. [00:56]
asciilifeform aha [00:56]
mircea_popescu so no, south africa is not a possible result. [00:56]
decimation yeah, government of & by the orcs [00:56]
asciilifeform usa will also have a government. [00:56]
mircea_popescu in the sense that sec will oversee mpex. [00:56]
asciilifeform or rather, pieces of usa [00:56]
mircea_popescu sure. [00:56]
mircea_popescu they can draw mpex on a piece of paper and oversee it till they fall over. [00:57]
decimation actually I think the mega-trend here is that the us is sorting itself out geographically [00:57]
decimation men who don't want to put up with baltimore's shit, stop [00:57]
decimation can move to portland or whereever [00:57]
mircea_popescu orly. lol. [00:57]
decimation sure, that's what gives the us its black and white checkerboard demographic map [00:58]
mircea_popescu men who don't like the earthquake in kyoto can go have the earthquake in osaka. [00:58]
mircea_popescu provided they move fast enough. [00:58]
decimation earthquakes are unpredictable [00:58]
decimation it's not like noone could have predicted racial freak-out in baltimore [00:58]
asciilifeform orc flare-ups are similarly unpredictable (other than, possibly, to instigators) [00:59]
mircea_popescu decimation why didn't you predict it then! [00:59]
mircea_popescu or for that matter, predict the next one, so you know where not to go o.O [00:59]
asciilifeform in the general case, both - predictable. like the example of orlov's bridge falling into the river. (eventually the whole thing is underwater. but when?) [00:59]
decimation well, I did leave the md/dc area [01:00]
BingoBoingo A contemporary USian problem is that for every DEA Carl Mark Force IV is a freelance Carl Mark Force IV who also robs Drug dealers bu while doing so is younger, darker, and more effective [01:00]
mircea_popescu a, you did ? [01:00]
decimation not many orc flare-ups in dubuque iowa, or bismark nd [01:00]
BingoBoingo decimation: Purely chance [01:00]

BingoBoingo decimation: Not yet, Ferguson shit didn't even make it to clayton, but did annoy StL city proper [01:01]
decimation even in the wash dc area, people pay really good money to be physically separated from orcs [01:02]
asciilifeform they pay up to 100% of income, yes. [01:02]
asciilifeform it mostly works. [01:03]
asciilifeform in fact, the baltimore thing etc. is a kind of 'floor demo' [01:03]
BingoBoingo I'm just glad stl avoided its inevitable orc vs. high-orc flare up for some time [01:03]
asciilifeform 'here is why you were smart not to move to where house exactly like yours costs 1/7th what you paid' [01:03]
decimation even though rich jews live less than a few miles from the hell-hole, they might as well be a world away [01:03]
BingoBoingo And the Black vs. Bosnia conflict was silenced by the old bosnians [01:03]
mircea_popescu you know, this is so bizarre to me. [01:03]
asciilifeform this is one reason why the uprisings are permitted (hell, organized) by usg [01:04]
decimation (north baltimore is famously highly jewish) [01:04]
mircea_popescu my main complaint here in argentina is that well... there's no "orcs" as you call them, in sight. [01:04]
mircea_popescu i have no idea how you people can even live in a 100% pencilneck atmosphere. [01:04]
asciilifeform if not this, there'd be pinkertons, machine-gunning at foot level [01:04]
mircea_popescu doesn't it get depressing like the fucking sahara ? [01:04]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform the reports were exagerated. [01:10]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: ... there hasn't been one in decades << all dead ? [01:11]
mircea_popescu no, all stupid. [01:11]
mircea_popescu here's a deep dark secret : the us would produce fine young men too, even white ones, if their IDIOTIC MOTHERS were beaten more often, [01:11]
mircea_popescu and the grandmothers kept in the outhouse. [01:11]
mircea_popescu argentina, much more than the us, is an old-woman-oriented society. [01:11]
mircea_popescu it's disgusting. [01:12]
asciilifeform the (not argentinian but pertinent) garcia marquez painted a very frightening picture of this, in his tales [01:12]
mircea_popescu it's the case. the jews have it ridiculously bad but not this bad. the arabs have it almost as bad, but not nearly. [01:13]
mircea_popescu this country is maybe the casebook study on "what happens if you don't beat the women". [01:13]

mircea_popescu i don't care. but the women preferably. [01:15]
mircea_popescu This kind of elevation of young men normally only occurs on battlefields or on sports teams—not in sissy, civilized, shop keeping society. The leaders and academics of our sick corrupt society have labored for nearly two centuries to emasculate our young men from the cradle to the grave. [01:15]
mircea_popescu I now observe, through what of my primal man’s eye I have been able to salvage from this systematic assault on my humanity, that all it takes is a few urban savages to rip the mask away from the slave mistress that owns us to expose her for the impotent squabbling bitch that she is, and open the door for men to be men once again, as the lie that encases our souls crumbles to dust with every fumbling falsehood that fa [01:15]
mircea_popescu lls flat beneath the reality of naked force. The hooting black heathens that have hunted me in the streets of Baltimore for over 30 years might be my enemies, but they at least acknowledge my manhood as they probe for my every weakness, and have struck a resounding blow against the slave mistress society that seeks with its every apparatus to render me weak to the point of meek. [01:15]
mircea_popescu speaking of which! [01:15]
mircea_popescu check this out, this dude gets shit. [01:15]
asciilifeform eh reads like 'mansphere' sop. [01:15]

mircea_popescu well he's a mfa/boxer coach, whadda ya want. [01:16]

mircea_popescu asciilifeform why ? [01:27]
BingoBoingo decimation: Capenter bees here in the past decade went the miraculous transformation from pest to desirable [01:27]
asciilifeform mircea_popescu: why ? << same reason flew in pogotrons - local supplies did not cut it [01:28]
* asciilifeform conjectured. [01:28]
mircea_popescu asciilifeform nono, i mean, why do you not see ua etc. [01:28]
mircea_popescu as to fly in, i have better shit to do with my girls than lift argentina from the shithole. maybe if i cared more, or maybe if it pissed me off more. but as it is... whatever. [01:29]
asciilifeform because was under the impression that mircea_popescu lacked for desperadoes, good shootouts, etc. in b-a rather than gurlz [01:29]

mircea_popescu "The Baltimore riots were fueled by cohesive large scale mobs exiting their criminal training ground, where they are prepared for a lifetime of illiteracy and incarceration: Baltimore City Schools.

Friday was as hot as any day of the riots other than [05:41]

When another weekend rolled around [05:41]
mircea_popescu there was no longer an ability to marshal large ghetto forces, absent their high school breeding grounds. The media coverage was a complete lie and a hoax, the rioters have been excused, and the race-purging strike teams in outlying areas ignored or covered up.

mircea_popescu and this is also a fine entry point for explaining to management noobs the meta point of why exactly a theoretical approach doesn't ever work. yes, you could read the tcp/ip spec and look for holes. those are the holes in the tcp/ip spec, not the holes in tcp/ip. [14:27]
mircea_popescu it's horrible not so much for what it wants to be on paper, [14:27]
mircea_popescu but for what its aspirations cause on the ground. [14:27]
ascii_field and then the holes in the implementations... [14:27]
ascii_field and the emergent crud from interplay of layers, etc [14:28]
nubbins` wait now, who's hanging wind chimes from my what? [14:28]
mircea_popescu so ima link this into the cfo/accountant discussion with Pierre_Rochard from yest. [14:28]
mircea_popescu nubbins` apparently the word is out. you and your bizarre kink. [14:29]
nubbins` matter of time, i guess [14:29]
nubbins` incidentally i used to keep a blog on this fetlife-esque website years and years ago [14:29]
mircea_popescu any good ? [14:29]
nubbins` memories have been coming back [14:29]
nubbins` yeah. lotta skin. [14:29]
nubbins` privacy on actual lockdown [14:30]
mircea_popescu (btw... fetlife scraping still ongoing. they "fixed" so many things meanwhile...) [14:30]
nubbins` saw! [14:30]
mircea_popescu nubbins` you know there's nothing shameful about being a slut. [14:30]
* nubbins` nods sagely [14:30]
nubbins` no need to tell me [14:30]
nubbins` this site, (still alive in a frankenstein-esque parody of its former self), was actually way ahead of its time [14:30]
nubbins` you could set your profile as public or private [14:31]
nubbins` then later they added a "tracker" feature that, when enabled, would give you a list of the usernames that have visited your page [14:31]
mircea_popescu the way bmezine worked is that a large group of brown shit (random idiots mostly looking into an intersting path to killing themselves, a service boxing did for most of the 1900s, up to about the 90s) got some yellow shit interspersed. these are people who they themselves saw a little further than most. [14:32]
nubbins` THEN they let you block people who used trackers on their own pages, etc etc [14:32]
mircea_popescu to their reminescence, bmezine, ie, what they saw there then, was way ahead of its time. so would have anything else been, wherever they happened to look. [14:32]

mircea_popescu heh. powerball is a language now ? no wonder there's so many coders out there. [14:33]

nubbins` you could set your account so that users who hadn't made a blog post in __ months/weeks couldn't view your page [14:36]

ben_vulpes bizpartner's glider club is getting scammed with SEO [14:42]

ben_vulpes someone's making and selling gift certificates on their behalf [14:42]
ben_vulpes dudes at the field don't know the diff [14:43]
mircea_popescu heh. this is also a lot more common than commonly known. [14:43]
mircea_popescu "gift certificates" has been the primary way to move value from business to scammer since the 90s. [14:43]
mircea_popescu not credit card fraud. this. [14:43]
nubbins` i have maybe $300 in unspent gift cards in this house [14:43]
mircea_popescu whether groupon (usg mafia) gets it or ru or cn mafia gets it... still gotten. [14:43]

nubbins` [14:48]
assbot ... ( ) [14:48]
nubbins` ^ publicly viewable, no acct reqd [14:48]
mircea_popescu but anyway, moral being : forget about putting your time and effort into "compliance". for one thing it's stupid. for the other thing, who the fuck are they ?! and finally it's deliberately made to not be a satisfiable requirement. just there to soak up your time and resources. [14:48]
mircea_popescu outright ignore "compliance", spend the time and resources on the harem instead. [14:49]
mircea_popescu winning strat. [14:49]
mircea_popescu (and no, i am not aware you can be a successful king without a harem. your gender is not particularly relevant, your sexual preferences are not particularly relevant either. but you will have a lot of intimate relationships with a lot of other people, who are comitted to you personally.) [14:50]
nubbins` "One of the things I discovered is that if someone else has more money than you and are willing to spend it on lawyers, "right and wrong" are not very important!" [14:50]
mircea_popescu doh. [14:50]
mircea_popescu fetlife bitterly discovered same recently. was kinda fun to watch. [14:51]
nubbins` ah, here we go. [14:51]
ben_vulpes guns by any other name kill as well. [14:51]
nubbins` "BME was hugely profitable. That said, because I trusted others to manage my finances, I was under the impression that BME was barely breaking even though it really was a license to print money. I was much more interested in BME on a creative level than a business level." [14:51]
nubbins` that's the elevator version right there [14:51]
mircea_popescu yeah, the funny thing about the human condition, in its fractally-deliberate misdesign, is that the slaves are altogether more likely to be creative than the masters. [14:52]
ben_vulpes i wonder to what degree that describes burning man's finances. [14:52]
ben_vulpes harem and slave are similar concepts in this model of "leadership"? [14:52]
mircea_popescu which is a fine entry point for explaining to the naive why exactly a properly explicit master-slave relationship is the best intimate arrangement available. [14:52]
mircea_popescu ben_vulpes similar but not identical, and the difference is way out of scope here. [14:53]
ben_vulpes (harem member i suppose that i mean) [14:53]
mircea_popescu (as the above explanation, consider moldbug's very valid discussion of the guy with the ring that could kill. he who is secure in his authority makes excellent leadership. he who is not - horribru) [14:53]

assbot Rachel Larratt (@rachellarratt) • Instagram photos and videos ... ( ) [14:54]
mircea_popescu and to do a meta point here, to go with the meta point above : this entire discussion is a fine point to explain to the managerially challenged why you can't "control the evaporation". where intelligent people lay, nubbins' lateral discussion of "bullshot nobody cares about" sparked stuff people do seem to care about. [14:55]
mircea_popescu lotta win in laterality. [14:55]
nubbins` "All I need is , , and maybe a little adventure now and then." [14:55]
nubbins` suspiciously absent from list of things she needs: her daughter o.O [14:55]
mircea_popescu nubbins` is her nose big enough to qualify as a rachel ? [14:55]
nubbins` no [14:55]
mircea_popescu scam. [14:56]
mircea_popescu ascii_field yeah him. and incidentally, this is the secular driver of the collapse in quality of life and everything else seen since the 1700s (it is a horrid collapse once you do inflation-adjustments) : back then leadership was secure, and therefore either good or motivated to improve, ever so marginally. [14:57]
mircea_popescu today most models have insecure leadership, and so "corruption", which is NEVER a problem, ends up misrepresented as one. [14:57]
ascii_field mircea_popescu: this was 98% of mr mold's theme [14:57]
mircea_popescu it's valid. [14:58]
ascii_field aha. [14:58]
mircea_popescu for that matter, the problem with yarvin was not the broad strokes, but all the empty mcdonalds wrappers he glued to them everywhere. [14:58]
ascii_field it is obvious as daylight, to anyone who gives a damn [14:58]
ascii_field what he found in the junkyard where he grew up - he glued, yes. [14:58]
mircea_popescu i guess it's possible he's just a bodysnatcher victim, rather than outright ill intended. [14:59]
mircea_popescu but this distinction without a difference /me can scarcely be interested in. [14:59]
mircea_popescu maybe if he had nice tits and i was fucking her. maybe. [14:59]

mircea_popescu ascii_field let's play a game. i quote and you guess. [15:01]

mircea_popescu Yes, that's very pretty. I heard a story once. In fact, I've heard a lot of stories in my time. They went along with the sound [15:03]

mircea_popescu (it's from casablanca, bogart says it to the stupid priss w/e her name is) [15:06]
ascii_field hm how's this plug in [15:07]
mircea_popescu she was a "famine victim" too. [15:08]
ascii_field famine victims do the stupidest imaginable shit, like eating dirt and sand, drinking sea water [15:08]
ascii_field sometimes - nutritious insects in the dirt [15:08]
mircea_popescu not all of them. [15:08]
ascii_field not all of them << the remaining - starve quietly, with honour ? [15:11]
mircea_popescu the remaining never gave a shit in the first place. [15:11]
ascii_field wai wat [15:12]
mircea_popescu there's a reason nubbins` finds the mentally insane so fascinating. that reason is that he has the deep intuition that the only people worth the mention are the ones that don't actually care. [15:12]
ascii_field paging herr limonov! [15:12]
ascii_field 'nuts are the only sane folks' - oldest meme in the book - not wrong, really, either [15:12]
mircea_popescu myeah. [15:13]
mircea_popescu ascii_field anyway, if it's not obvious, the tinny piano in the parlor downstairs explicitly says the woman's a whore. [15:13]
ascii_field well yes [15:14]
mircea_popescu she never actually confronts this, which is why To Have and Have Not is a much better movie than casablanca. [15:14]
mircea_popescu it's also why it had to be made (it's quite obviously a remake of casablanca, without the "girl next door" slime befouling it). that point has to be addressed. [15:15]

nubbins` haw [16:26]
pete_dushenski also, article updated with... yet another personal connection to ndp. [16:27]
pete_dushenski i wouldn't say i'm ashamed, but my goodness does socialism run deep in my veins. [16:27]
mircea_popescu kinda what being a jew is. [16:27]
pete_dushenski the lulz then ? this is on the ukrainian orthodox side. [16:28]
pete_dushenski i'm getting hit both ways. [16:28]
pete_dushenski no way out ! [16:28]
mircea_popescu basically, jews came up with the first social security system. this, cca 2000 ad. [16:28]
mircea_popescu bc* [16:28]
mircea_popescu christians then imported it [16:28]
pete_dushenski sure, taking the sabbath [16:28]
mircea_popescu nah, not just that. having kids eat at different houses each day so they could stay in school ? [16:29]
mircea_popescu have debts periodically reset ? [16:29]
mircea_popescu etc. [16:29]
pete_dushenski ah yes, jubilee [16:29]
mircea_popescu (note incidentally that the ancient superset of family life - each kid eats with his mother - is harem life - each kid eats with all the mothers) [16:29]
pete_dushenski what's the story on the kids eating around ? first i've heard of it. [16:29]
mircea_popescu this is how the jews thought best to prepare elites. [16:29]
mircea_popescu pete_dushenski what do you think yeshiva was originally ? [16:30]
mircea_popescu this arrangement. [16:30]
pete_dushenski so seven different households, weekly rotation ? [16:30]
mircea_popescu more like 30 or w/e [16:30]
mircea_popescu that's how student = vagabond even became a hting. [16:31]
pete_dushenski aha. and this yeshivic arrangement is part of social security as well ? [16:31]
mircea_popescu well isn't it ? [16:32]
mircea_popescu "govt" gives you a meal ticket. [16:32]
mircea_popescu the boys aren't expected to SEDUCE those married women and OVERPOWER their husbands, are they ? [16:32]
pete_dushenski aha or "community" feeds [16:32]
pete_dushenski surely not. [16:32]
pete_dushenski but if they do, a man is he ! [16:33]
mircea_popescu hardly. more like an inhuman force of nature that has the potential to be massively disruptive and interfacing him to the village may well cost more than it's worth. [16:33]
pete_dushenski so a rotating set of meals as a test, a benchmark, to ensure cohesion and the integrity of the social fabric. [16:35]
mircea_popescu no, just, to make taxation bearable and spending of public funds effectual. [16:35]
pete_dushenski and if boy is not worth it ? well what of him ? [16:36]
mircea_popescu this is how boy becomes the castrated sort of cvasi-intellectual jewish world always produced. the women love the style because it flatters their inferiority complex, the men tolerate it because they don't like fighting (or think they don't, because they grew up the same way) [16:38]
pete_dushenski and what of the boys who don't stay or won't be castrated ? the ones who seduce and overpower ? [16:39]
mircea_popescu like... who ? [16:40]
mircea_popescu im sure they have excellent personal histories. but, much like in the case of the messiah you hadn't heard of, the "culture" or w/e it is fails to meaningfully represent them. [16:41]
mircea_popescu (this is ITS failure, try it as it might to misrepresent it as theirs) [16:41]
pete_dushenski so spinoza, einstein, maimonides, freud, bohr aren't meaningfully represented ? [16:44]
