    This will play very well toward his working-class fans and the bourgeois naysayers will just end up looking like snobby assholes.

    Holy shit. This is like the coming of a Woke Capital singularity.

    Is it? Of course, I'm in favor of more competition and lower barriers to entry, but I'm not convinced that's a solution to Woke Capital. Gilette has plenty of competition. More than ever due to companies like Dollar Shave Club (which is an excellent company for the record, and sponsors anti-SJW content on YouTube). Game companies have a metric shitton of competition and that doesn't stop them from being absolutely infested with progressivism, perhaps worse than any other industry. Competition doesn't seem to create conservative or even just non-progressive cultural companies.

    I'm glad this was posted on RPF because the forum can now be introduced to a concept that is going to be very prominent in the coming years; Woke Capital. Major corporations are among the biggest pushers of progressive social attitudes. Everyone from movie studios to game developers to car companies to now fucking shaving firms push SJW leftist propaganda. There's a Woke Capital twitter page and the guy who runs it claims that there is exactly one multinational corporation who hasn't started pushing these narratives. The question of corporate power both politically and culturally is going to be the most important question of the early 21st Century and boilerplate libertarianism has no remotely interesting or helpful answers to what's actually going on. BTW for those interested https://twitter.com/WokeCapital

    Meh... so what? Those people will load up on to another platform, which will go bad, and so on and so forth. What is needed is a true P2P messenger sort of deal such that nobody is able to delete or censor other users, save in those channels over which they have control such as their personal pages and groups they've established. We have the technology. We could make it happen. Perhaps I should start this.... call it... I dunno... facenode.com? No... facenode.org. That's the ticket!

    That is a fairly important bit of information. I'd think the author would have placed that directly in his work rather than abstracted by a layer. At best this is sloppy work.

    My mind must be gone because I almost cannot imagine working for $90K, having long ago done 5x that. It is a weird thing to be around large sums such as the hundreds of millions of other people's dollars I have managed on client projects. You become inured to the enormity of such sums such that a $100K salary seems not quite meager, but definitely nothing about which to write home. The mind is a very strange place.

    You could be correct, but so far as my scan indicates, there appears to be insufficient data in the article to draw a reliable conclusion. The article is written in typically poor form, whether intentionally or otherwise, leaving readers to draw tacit inferences and even conclusions based on very fuzzy innuendo.

    Once again Juan shows he is either intellectually deficient, this time to a frightening depth, or is just being a dick. The question of whether Kolfage is a scammer is irrelevant to the issue at hand, which is that FB shut him off with no due process. FB are assholes... really big, sore-riddled, unwashed, abominably stinky sphincters not to be trusted for anything save that they will stick something large and unpleasant in your bootus-hole, given half a chance. Now, perhaps you like that kind of thing, which would go a long way toward explaining why you appear to be defending those douchebags.

    Depends on what the relevant agreements say. FB could be in breach, in which case disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids may take them to the cleaners. Other possibility is that disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids failed to read the agreements carefully where some fine print clearly provided for FB's authority to do as they did, in which case disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids is probably SOL. Just because he is a disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids, he doesn't get a pass on the latter, unless he is brain-damaged, in which case we have a real problem. What I don't understand is why anyone would do business with FB. Firstly, they are scummy, lowlife trash so far as I am concerned. I'd not give them a penny. Secondly, they are not to be trusted to the end of one's nose. What possesses people... oh, yeah... ignorance and greed. Never mind.

    Except for the fact that Israel has been a pretty lousy ally. I've nothing againt them, mind you, but to say that a nation that was caught with its pants at its ankles spying on the people who made and continue to make their very existence possible a "good ally" doesn't even merit ridicule. It is a subridiculous assertion. Never mind them firing on American sea vessels. I wish them all the best - theirs is a tough row to hoe. But never tell me the lie that they are good allies.

    (Part III) I COME NOW to a point which is, in my opinion, the mainspring and the secret of domination, the support and foundation of tyranny. Whoever thinks that halberds, sentries, the placing of the watch, serve to protect and shield tyrants is, in my judgment, completely mistaken. These are used, it seems to me, more for ceremony and a show of force than for any reliance placed in them. The archers forbid the entrance to the palace to the poorly dressed who have no weapons, not to the well armed who can carry out some plot. Certainly it is easy to say of the Roman emperors that fewer escaped from danger by aid of their guards than were killed by their own archers.18 It is not the troops on horseback, it is not the companies afoot, it is not arms that defend the tyrant. This does not seem credible on first thought, but it is nevertheless true that there are only four or five who maintain the dictator, four or five who keep the country in bondage to him. Five or six have always had access to his ear, and have either gone to him of their own accord, or else have been summoned by him, to be accomplices in his cruelties, companions in his pleausres, panders to his lusts, and sharers in his plunders. These six manage their chief so successfully that he 18 Almost a third of the Roman Emperors were killed by their own soldiers.---M.N.R.

    (Part II) DOCTORS ARE NO DOUBT CORRECT in warning us not to touch incurable wounds; and I am presumably taking chances in preaching as I do to a people which has long lost all sensitivity and, no longer conscious of its infirmity, is plainly suffering from mortal illness. Let us therefore understand by logic, if we can, how it happens that this obstinate willingness to submit has become so deeply rooted in a nation that the very love of liberty now seems no longer natural. In the first place, all would agree that, if we led our lives according to the ways intended by nature and the lessons taught by her, we should be intuitively obedient to our parents; later we should adopt reason as our guide and become slaves to nobody. Concerning the obedience given instinctively to one's father and mother, we are in agreement, each one admitting himself to be a model. As to whether reason is born with us or not, that is a question loudly discussed by academicians and treated by all schools of philosophers. For the present I think I do not err in stating that there is in our souls some native seed of reason, which, if nourished by good counsel and training, flowers into

    If you read nothing else for the rest of your life, read this if within you even the least shred of love for freedom exists. Here, in one short discourse, a man of great intellect sets forth that which I have been espousing for the past forty years in a manner that puts my efforts to dust. This treatise leaves me feeling as if my entire philosophical life has amounted to nothing. Boétie expressed his observations with a masterful grace I will never attain, no matter how I may endeavor. Please read this in its entirety, I ask this and nothing more of any of you, save to disseminate the work to all you know, whether open to the ideas or otherwise. There is grand poetry in his style and deeply incisive vision. The double spaces indicate page breaks in the original format from the book, which is available from https://mises.org/library/politics-obedience-discourse-voluntary-servitude THE DISCOURSE OF VOLUNTARY SERVITUDE

    Tucker is interesting and right about much, but he's incorrect about the teleology of technology. Nick Land is far closer to the truth of technology, the market and the macro-intelligence of both than Tucker Carlson is. Luddites are paper tigers.

    No, they wouldn't since you have to replace the elites with someone or some group of people. A society without elites is a leftist utopian pipe dream. There is simply no one on the dissident right who is capable. The mantra of "become worthy, then lead" is a good one, but I see very little of that happening. The leader figures who have emerged are totally ineffectual fools.

    Will Trump actually deliver? Reasons To Believe In Trump’s Syria Withdrawal Are Vanishing “Ignore The Words Of US Presidents. Watch Their Actions Instead.” … top government figures … understand that power has nothing to do with truth and everything to do with narrative control … Everyone completely lost their shit last month when the president once again made the claim that US troops will be brought home from Syria. Establishment loyalists of the political/media class went into full meltdown, Mattis handed in his resignation … “I never said we’d be doing it that quickly,” press were told on Sunday by the president, who has indeed previously used the words “now” and “quickly” to describe the pace of troop withdrawal. “We won’t be finally pulled out, until ISIS is gone,” Trump added. National Security Advisor John Bolton has also announced additional conditions … before … withdrawal … including the seemingly indefinite need to counter Iranian activity … and the need for an agreement to be reached between the US and Turkey to protect Kurdish militias …

    NYT: Scientist confirm Recording of alleged "sonic attacks" are lovelorn crickets On Friday, two scientists presented evidence that those sounds were not so mysterious after all. They were made by crickets, the researchers concluded. … the recording is not of a sonic weapon, as had been suggested. Alexander Stubbs of the University of California, Berkeley, and Fernando Montealegre-Z of the University of Lincoln in England studied a recording of the sounds made by diplomats and published by The Associated Press. … Mr. Stubbs presented the results of the analysis at the annual meeting of the Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology. … The song of the Indies short-tailed cricket “matches, in nuanced detail, the A.P. recording in duration, pulse repetition rate, power spectrum, pulse rate stability, and oscillations per pulse,” the scientists wrote in their analysis.

    They closed the thread before I was able to respond to you, so I just wanted to say, I agree with all of your concerns about Rand Paul. I still think he's better than the other options, but he isn't my ideal. I'm most likely going to vote for him, but I don't blame people who won't. And if I was still going to live in NYS in 2016 (I'm moving to Virginia for college, which as we know is a swingy state) I would be less likely to vote for him. Even still, if the LP candidate is too good to pass up (Someone more like Harry Browne than Gary Johnson... the latter of which was more of a lesser of five evils) I would consider voting for them.
