We are reaching the apogee of r in the world of our politics.
Here is a post on Free Republic with some pictures from men’s fashion today, demonstrating the reversal in sexual dimorphism. This is obviously related to our political scene, with all of its Liberal girly-men. Interestingly, the Luddites, anti-industrialists who were themselves a byproduct of the success of the Industrial Revolution, also dressed up as women during protests, telling people they were the wives of their ficticious namesake, Nedd Ludd.. These things are timeless.
At the same time, the tremors from K’s approach are beginning, and Conservatism is rising.
Vox talks about Britain possibly leasing what appears to be over 1300 tons of gold to try to quell some volatility issues overseas in the gold market. It is hard to believe that other nations didn’t contribute to that pot as well. This is K-selection in politics peeking out of its hole, and panicked r-strategists are doing all they can to tamp it back down. It will be a losing battle.
JP Morgan goes around, hat in hand, looking for gold to borrow, and doesn’t even try to hide it. Supposedly, they have been holding short positions on Gold for a while. Some analysis I have seen has indicated that when the banks fail, it will happen in Europe first. As foreign governments print foreign currency so the banks will have something to give depositors, the thinking is it will trigger a flood into dollars, from Europeans trying to get their wealth out of their increasingly worthless currencies. The increase in demand for dollars will drive down gold’s worth in dollars. I’m not sure what is more interesting – that the governments seem to view everything as so tenuous that they will move that much gold on a moment’s notice, or that the banks are risking their life on a bet that the collapse will begin momentarily.
Yet another article on pension woes in the US. Cities are going bankrupt, states are going bankrupt, and the nations will as well, eventually. That is what will snap Conservatism back into power, and crush Liberalism. It is coming, and I expect revenge on Liberals will be harsh. Anders Brevik may eventually be cursed by the political right as too much of a moderate.
The Treasury is now not even trying to hide that they are lying. That is a bad sign.
As the r’s trigger our return back into K-selection, in-grouping begins, and Conservatism rises. When the adaptable psychologies in populations shift towards K, the successes will increasingly seek to shrug off the leaches and be free. Tolerated when times were good, and there was no real cost to their bloodsucking, Leftist leaches become a perceptible burden when times get tough. Conservative K’s love nothing more than violently rejecting the demands of entitled and selfish r’s, who themselves expect to be coddled by groveling Conservative K’s. As times get worse, expect this to increase to its apex, in the form of outright war on Liberal r’s, and maybe even widespread culling on a global scale. History would indicate that killing is a stress on the amygdala the first few pulls of the trigger, but after that there are few amygdala relaxants as potent as just killing the bastards who were trying to screw you. If that psychological threshold is crossed, watch out. I am getting emails from Liberals now, asking if I should really be making the case I do here. They feel it makes Liberals out to be so different, bordering on enemies, that it could lead to this type of violence. I am horrified, but what can I do, if this is the truth?
Italians want out of the Euro so they can begin competing with other nations, instead of being trapped in a big Kumbaya party with them. Capitalism rises with aggression towards outsiders.
The Swiss are segregating asylum seekers. Swiss Conservatism emerges, and not a moment too late.
Norway is making a rightward turn, embracing Conservatism. Vox was right. Anders Brevik was the tip of a spear which will pass right through the continent.
French nationalists are growing, and becoming increasingly anti-left and anti immigrant, and this is spreading to Germany and Austria. Golden Dawn was the moderate beginning of a rightward movement that will spread throughout Europe as the financial ecosystem collapses. Be grateful you are not a Liberal today.
Republicans in America are getting pissed, and want a fight to begin with the traitors among us, ie. Liberals. That will reach orbital velocity as time goes on, and the economy whithers.
K’s rigorously police the ranks of their in-group. Here a pedophile is just filled full of lead and left by the side of the road, by a community-minded shooter who apparently wishes to remain anonymous despite the accolades Freepers feel should be bestowed upon him. There is a rumor that this may be a Charles Bronson-esque, “Deathwish” type vigilante bent on taking out the trash, based on two other such killings where the victims had police histories. As K returns, this type of thing will increase, and if it increases enough, it could produce a smoldering civil war, where Dexter-like Conservative revolutionaries stalk registered Democrats and Liberal political contributors in their homes, for being traitors to the nation. I say that coldly and clinically, mind you, without the faintest hint of bemusement or approval.
And in other news, Liberal media types are still batshit crazy. Seriously, imagine resources are scarce enough that somebody is going to die. How long will this guy last?
