asciilifeform imagine such a thing in anglo world [00:01]
asciilifeform last was what, bbc circa 1950s ? [00:01]

mircea_popescu "White female managers usually end up with nervous breakdowns and are not as effective as men, but are 100% loyal and never steal, ever. This is the backbone of any retail food staff, white chicks. Work her until she breaks and get another." [00:03]
mircea_popescu this is a PARTICULARLY insightful piece from lafond guy huh. [00:03]
mircea_popescu might be the most competent thing i read all week on the open wwwbs. [00:03]
mircea_popescu "Black female managers are rarely effective and steal at 50%—fully half of the ones I have worked with being confirmed thieves." << lioness hunting for the clan as opposed to the ball busting harpy gioving herself and everyone else aneurisms. makes sense, huh. [00:05]
mircea_popescu "Women, white and black, who do not qualify for management, are usually not worth anything on the staff, and generally steal at about 20%, with lower paid working black girls less than half as likely to steal as their management counterparts, and white girls on staff infinitely more larcenous than the white girls in management. I won’t even try and explain this, as it boggles my mind." it doesn't boggle my mind any. [00:07]
mircea_popescu seems pretty obvious. [00:07]

mircea_popescu i guess it boggles his mind because it makes a point he doesn't wish to hear. anyway, race has exactrly nothing to do with it : woman can either be my slave, out to carve your empire into the dust, or one of the empire's own aspirationally-vacuous wastes of flesh, brigading social media so that maybe it has some effect on reality.

mircea_popescu in this paradigm, it is not so important that there's mass theft or rape, just that there's no organized power behind it. [10:33]
mircea_popescu obviouisly if there WERE such a power, the actual damage actual working people suffered would be minimal, but this is at no point a consideration. [10:33]
mircea_popescu the same exact process used in "policing" the ghetto, at the taxpayer's expense but in the usg's own private benefit is also what the us military does abroad. the point isn't for iraq to functyion or not, the point is for there to not exist any gaddafi's. let the euros deal with the fallout, what, that's what the castrated suckers are there for anyway. [10:34]
mircea_popescu between mob-run ny, which functions smoothly and is culturally relevant and ghetto-choked baltimore, which does not function and is culturally irrelevant, the usg will pick the second every time. [10:35]

mircea_popescu the difference being that businesses happen at the tip of a large pushing force, such as the airbnb scam pushed by paul graham-madoff, or such as "green energy" scam pushed by president bahamas-madoff. to be a start-up is exactly opposite to this, you're alone. [12:18]

Birdman There is a difference between courtesy and respect, though. It might have been drilled into their heads that they deserve it, for some reason, and senses of entitlement are rampant. [12:59]

Birdman Yes, as far as America goes this is common. The fat slob brainwashee's who arent worth a damn would like to be held in high regards. [13:00]

mircea_popescu honestly, i've yet to meet a woman (not mayo-gendered abominations, i've really not met any nor do i intend to) that actually hated men. there's a very mean streak in women generally, but visible with the naked eye in just some, where they truly and irationally haet beta boys, for some definition of beta that may be at first confounding. [13:33]
mircea_popescu but that unicorn, the woman that actually hates men, i've not encountered myself. [13:34]
mircea_popescu (the counter doth actually exist - men that genuinely hate women. i suspect the driver is that men are, for some inexplicable reason, actually petrified of cunt. it seems innate.) [13:35]
Birdman I guess the man hating isn't there, but you know, the crazy feminists who think a guy eyeing a hot girl is somehow violent and un just. They just know all too well that their sexuality is empowering, so those who lack it are intimidated. Sort of like the beta male crying for fairness with socialism or communism, but really just knows his weaknesses and cant compete in the true fair system. [13:35]
