@MentORPHEUS @SeasonedRP and @destraht's point is that the elites went along with a narrative because it was convenient for them to take more control over people long before there was enough evidence that their models were right. It's very much like covid19 and the vaccines. Instead of waiting to see what really is going on they pretend to react immediately but they had plans to control people anyway and are using this as an excuse. So you are trying to argue whether climate change is happening but that's not what @SeasonedRP and @destraht are talking about exactly, they are saying that the political debates surrounding it are dishonest.
I think that the environment is being fucked up one way or the other. I'm not denying the climate is changing. More importantly to me than temperatures is the amount of cancer causing pollution and the pollution that kills manhood. Literally because of plastics.
At some point you have to trace the problems back to some basic origins. Don't look at just one politician at a time. The whole system is broken to begin with. Come on, stupid people choosing leaders? Who do you think the children are going to choose? It's going to be a clown, someone who can dance and sing and entertain them. If you can't get smart and good people in power it won't work no matter what. It's worked before with a philosophy test. Why not now?
Another stupid thing is the West since the Enlightenment, which is the greatest branding of all time. So many bad ideas came back from their Roman imperial graves. Who the fuck cares what those pederasts thought? And not to mention the best of the Greeks knew democracy was a bad idea. They killed the commons and privatized everything. What's good about the Enlightenment? The scientific advancement? The same thing that lead to our over dependence on oil? Carcinogens everywhere since the 19th century? Liberals and conservatives both like the Enlightenment for different reasons but they're all wrong. The science was unnecessary for living a happy life and the political stuff is the same thinking that leads eventually to the family breaking down and women being the way they are today. Once you go down the retarded equality route, you can't deny it to be people, including women, no matter how unequal they really are.Read More
@Antelope I think that it's possible that there could be some great opportunities to go into Japan at some point. It's just a matter of when, and what you race and nationality is, and what your skills are. It also depends on which groups that Japan is willing to let in easily. It could be that they are systematically against Chinese and Pacific Muslims moving in and so will just throw an easy residency at any cool white guys that want to come over. Black Westerners seem to be able to find plenty of women who really want to try that out for at least a moment, but it's difficult to know now if that is going to be appealing to the Japanese authorities. It's difficult to make a policy of racism on paper though by other means because they need to find a proxy for something else. Nationality is ten times easier. They just won't make the agreements with the other state and it's simple.
It's something that I've been keeping an eye on for a long time. I'm fine with a tiny apartment and safe streets as long as it's not the only that I'll get for most of my life. For example, if I have my Transnistria place with $15/year property taxes and $1/month garbage bill, and no bank debt then I could afford to have another place on another continent. A collapsed Japan might be pretty cool for that.
To have kids though you'd have to be fine with them being seen as not Japanese for their entire lives. If you weren't carefully watching their schooling then they could find themselves in some depressing situations during the cruelest years. One time a Japanese guy was telling me about how a white chick was always being picked on for not being Japanese, but then when she developed every Japanese guy was drooling over her and trying to knock on her door. It's rather unknown to me though how a Japanese guy would expect her to behave or if he'd be cruel to her from being mocked by thirsty jealous dudes.
Probably if you raised your kids in Japan it would be best to treat it like how many Jews do where they're one foot in the place and one foot somewhere else, and a bit into the enclave and ghetto thing. That way the kids could be insulated from fucked up stuff that Japanese peers could do to them during the formative years. Also there is the possibility that the elites there could pull a move like what the Chinese are doing by literally blaming every single failing on foreigners, and effectively pushing you out. It's no fun to have 85 IQ losers amped up on government propaganda and wanting to hurt you, or reporting you for anything. Due to how bad this can be I'm occasionally asking everyone here in Transnistria if they're hearing government nasty stuff about foreigners or certain types of them. So far nothing.
Blaming foreigners is a tricky business. As an immigrant your job isn't to sneak over to the door, kill the guards and to open up the gate at night for all foreign hoards to enter. Unfortunately that is how it has become with many pussy ass Democrat immigrants in America. Too many of them think that saying that a group (and a low tier one at that) shouldn't be able to illegally swarm the country, or even that there are simply enough of that type is a Nazi affront to their personal safety as an immigrant. I had a Sikh friend like that, and along with him being a married bitch ass Indian he was taking the Trump is a Nazi stance because he felt vulnerable the same as during a period when Sikhs were openly hunted in India. Sorry for your trauma bro, but fuck off. That is how you get a good little beta Indian with all of his papers in order opposing basic things like border security, which almost every other national large, small, poor or rich gets to have.
That brings me onto a point about the secret sauce of American immigration. The true victim celebration began with the specific people who were allowed into America. "Bring us your tired huddled masses..." and all of that shit. The immigration office has greatly favored anyone who can claim persecution in their home country, or more specifically just a general aura of victimhood and being less likely of having duel allegiances later once they become fully invested. So you get failed communists, minority religion, race, language and ethnicity people, family survivors of genocides, and then most of them who kind of just understand the vibe and so embellish the sobbery of it all. There are exceptions (sort of) such as being Jewish and Israeli, which has a built in best-of-all victimhood rating regardless of life experiences.
So America gets soft power by having all of these people who could become translators, and can read other newspapers while reducing the likelihood of being spies and traitors (minus Israelis of whom it's expected). So you get all of the crybabies, the ones crazy as a fox, the rich kids, and then the hoards of Latinos whom can't be bothered to be counted.Read More
What are you studying in college/university that you lack the time to explore other topics of interest?
Whereas in the west increasing wages against inflation is a divisive thought experiment, Japanese expect low wages as a suppression against passing off rising costs onto the consumer.
At least the status quo is preserved. For the short term at least.
@slutmagazine The other articles I posted cover a bit of that nuance, but Japan is uniquely conservative. Whereas in the west increasing wages against inflation is a divisive thought experiment, Japanese expect low wages as a suppression against passing off rising costs onto the consumer.
In the US and Europe, companies usually respond to a rise in raw material and commodity prices by transferring those costs to consumers. In Japan, however, businesses fear a public backlash if they raise prices, while workers — beaten down by decades of stagnant pay — do not demand the higher wages that would let them afford higher prices in the shops.
The BoJ subsequently has, and demonstrates as such, the most spending power in the domestic market. That’s like a shopkeeper saying business is going well because he’s sold his entire stock to himself.
How then would they unravel that mess? Who does the BoJ see themselves offloading their assets to? The Japanese? Not likely, otherwise they wouldn’t have started. Foreign interests? Doubtful, the yen is weak, and these foreign interests have their own domestic economic issues.
Hilariously, the FT article still referred to this as free market capitalism.
I predict a post-collapse Japanese fire sale.Read More
