Breech Born Boy

God awoke mid-dream
Thus I was born
An aborted scheme
This man you scorn

Purring Satan let slip
In sleeping God's ear:
"Make his breast a crypt
For a heart of pure fear

"Let the cold inside chill him
When ambition will arise
Let dread always fill him
At any shock or surprise

"Let his ardor be frigid
And his passions be dull
Let his habits be rigid
His disgust always full!"

God tossed in his slumber
Frighted Devil withdrew
Now cursing the blunder
Of a plot not seen through

"The blueprint's unfinished
And I had such a plan!
Now he's all the cold fish
And no part the man!"

He carried me away
His evidence to hide
When I brayed he panicked
And cast me aside

"If I had only the power
To give and take life
I'd pluck this weed-flower
And leave it to die

"But it's for Mother Nature
To do her full worst
She'll grind this dull creature
Back down into Earth"

But then I was found
By a mother's good grace
She bore me away sound
To this safe place

And I endure, down here on Earth
Poorly adapted, forever unsure
Not without hope, not without mirth
But turning in circles, a creature impure!

Frame Games on JournoYid

Contextual Whiteness

Having assembled its unruly horde of increasingly ill-allied resentments, the Narrative doesn't know whether to shit or go blind:
Harvard University had only just announced its next president before he came under attack — not for anything he did, but for who he is. That is, in the eyes of his critics, at least, a “white male.” The New York Times greeted the selection with a news article reporting in its second paragraph that, in selecting Lawrence Bacow earlier this month, the search committee had missed “an opportunity for Harvard to choose a leader who would reflect the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements.”
Get that? The most prestigious newspaper in America told the most prestigious university in America it just blew the opportunity to hire its president based on one hoax and one hysteria.

But this is Harvard, and can't be run by a token hire, no matter how much the institution pushes the practice on others.

No longer did Wall Street or Pierce and Pierce mean Protestant Good Family. There were plenty of Irishmen, Greeks and Slavs. The fact that not one of the eighty members of the bond department was black or female didn't bother him. Why should it? It didn't bother Lipowitz, who took the position that the bond trading floor at Pierce and Pierce was no place for symbolic gestures.
--Bonfire of the Vanities

Money is at stake after all.
But there's a narrative wrinkle. Problematic intersectionality. The new president, predictably, is Jewish. The former editor of the Harvard Crimson goes on:
Such intense reaction tells two newsworthy stories: a negative tale about the politics of race and gender on campus and a positive one about America and its Jews.
I know this Ivy grad is my better, but the naivete is adorable. Somebody owns "the politics of race and gender on campus"--a thoroughly negative development of decades now--and it isn't "white people". Quotation marks, not parentheses.

American Jewry is faced with a choice whether to emphasize its identity as non-white and cast its lot in finally with the furious fringe or continue to absorb some of its wrath as white people. Either way, antisemitism is sure to increase.
Had those critics bothered to look beyond appearances, they might see someone who introduced himself to the university in a YouTube video as the son of two Jewish refugees. His mother was an Auschwitz survivor and his father was an immigrant from Minsk. As the grandson of a Jewish immigrant from Minsk myself, I’ve got experience with this issue. Personally, when the racial record-keepers ask me to check a box, I don’t go with “white,” but put “other” and write in “Jew.”
Other with a capital O? Critical race theory holds white privilege to be perpetuated by white skin and appearance--"bodies". A consistent reading of it would hold that Jews do in fact benefit from white privilege and are white in every meaningful way. Critical race theory is largely Jewish, of course.
So it shouldn't be that Jews individually or as a group get to opt out of responsibility for their "whiteness", after having benefited more than anyone else thereby (applying disparate impact logic to their remarkable wealth and success).

So the only way for a Jew or Jews to slip out from under the boot they've created with anti-white theory is to invoke the Holocaust, yet again, like a junkie seeking out a vein.

Vox Pox

Vox is laying off:
“Layoff talk started a month ago. Company is worried about future growth patterns — which is just jargon for the fact they over-hired in video even when they claimed they weren’t doing that exact thing during the big pivot of ’15-16,” the [anonymous Vox] staffer said.
Up until recently I watched few videos online, and few from such as Vox. The few I've seen haven't impressed me. I recall one vox-plaining "scientific racism". You haven't been affronted until a millennial girl explains to you who Blumenbach was in up-talk.

Mainstream outlets continue to struggle to capture a share of the increasing interest in online video that may or not be there, at least in the way they imagine--seeing the soy boy editor deliver the platitudes in person maybe isn't so compelling after all. The kind of eyeball herding they seek requires the viral or visceral
Overall, we are cautious about the long-term dynamics for video news in particular. Although there has been a significant growth in online video, much of this has been in social networks and around softer news and lifestyle content (or premium drama and sports on demand), not news. 
Video that adds drama and immediacy is now valued and expected by consumers on news websites, but only up to a point and in certain circumstances, with both young and old still valuing the control and flexibility of text. Although we are likely to see considerable innovation in both formats and production over the next few years, it is hard to see video replacing text in terms of the range of stories and the depth of comment and analysis traditionally generated by publishers. The high commercial returns currently available around video are unlikely to last if, as expected, more investment and more automated systems lead to a substantial increase in the supply of content, thus driving down advertising rates.
The smaller but more dynamic market for commentary and analysis feels like it belongs to the alt right naturally as a semi-Samizdat. Unfortunately for the alt right, what's driving video are digital formats, as offered by Google and Facebook. It seems only a matter of time before they Shut It Down.

Follow the Money

The revolution will have to be monetized.

Diversity is monetized because corporate America sees the growing non-white population as the future. Once the demographic shift in the US was set in motion, business had no choice but to pursue the new non-white consumer dollar. Its long-term planning necessarily became modeled on that population shift. It became invested. And advertising became propaganda for diversity.

Leaving aside the cultural and political forces that brought us here, American business is invested in the diverse future because that's where the consumers will be.

It gladly cooperates with government social engineering, which is itself massively monetized, and its advertising, in appealing directly to minorities over declining and taken-for-granted whites, over-represents them wildly. This poz propaganda (pozprop?) thus reinforces the confidence of the non-white consumers and further demoralizes whites.

Corporate America is invested in diversity because of demographics. But all profit really needs is demographic increase, not replacement. All of this came to mind while watching this from Frame Game Radio:

Regardless of how it got there, Disney remains invested in the diverse new order because that's where the money is. It won't be detached from it unless there's money elsewhere. White identity and reproduction need to be monetized at some point soon for white Americans to rehabilitate themselves as a people.

Recently Team Diversity was alarmed by new projections deferring that Glorious Moment when white America loses majority status by five whole years. A demographic shift accomplished overnight by historical standards--and they're angry and alarmed at this speed bump. Trump is deliberately trying to raise the percentage of the white population!

It wasn't good for morale. On the other hand, it's good (if not huge) for the morale of beleaguered whites. Ten years would be even better.  Right now, most whites remain conditioned against explicit racial awareness, and prohibited from speaking in favor of it. But that's changing along with the increasing intensity of anti-white culture that's found a focus point in the "Resistance",  itself aroused by the stirrings of white identity that is Trump, which, following the hate spiral back in time, was really produced by long years of anti-white propaganda culminating in the disaster for whites and racial comity in general that was Barack Obama.

Team Diversity points out correctly it matters little because whites aren’t having babies and non-whites are. Right now white Americans who aren't utterly de-sensitized see the projected future before them--as represented by film, television and advertising--as non-white. It's made to seem inevitable. But white cultural identity is taking shape, and it's only a matter of time before someone realizes there's a dollar to be made there.

Implicitly white artists are emerging (against their own wishes), and at least one recent project, Justin Timberlake's "Man of the Woods", appears as, at least, an unashamed celebration of rural white origins.

"Man of the Woods" was panned by critics and called out as problematic by the usual sources, but is proving popular. There's a cultural market out there business is afraid to go after. Diversity remains monetized, but all of a sudden there's...this. Money that has to be left on the table. Whatever the case, Justin Timberlake and any like him need to be encouraged in this direction.

Combining a cultural shift with sensible policies that at least do not subsidize non-white birthrates, would at the very least push that day of demographic reckoning wherein whites slip into a despised plurality farther still into the future. It's worth it just to see the look on their faces.

Who knows, before long, with rehabilitated white birthrates and depressed non-white birthrates, we might even be talking about a demographic shift back. If you will it, it is not a dream, as the man said.

Let the demographic bomb pass through the nation like a pig through a python. You may say I’m a dreamer...

Google-Eye of Soros

George Soros wants to break up the social media giants:
The companies claim that they are merely distributing information. But the fact that they are near-monopoly distributors makes them public utilities and should subject them to more stringent regulation, aimed at preserving competition, innovation, and fair and open access.
I'd like to see that happen too, without George's no doubt nuanced idea of "fair and open access".

On one hand I want to say what's needed isn't regulation of social media, but complete deregulation. But the fact is I think if we're ever to rehabilitate ourselves as a nation, we have to ban pornography, for one, with our own sort of Chinese firewall. As he notes
Chinese IT companies in particular are fully equal to the US platforms. They also enjoy the full support and protection of President Xi Jinping’s regime. China’s government is strong enough to protect its national champions, at least within its borders.
Must be nice!

George doesn't want the US to have national champions, protected within her borders.

The real problem Soros has is with the connections people are making online--with the amped-up expansion of freedom of association that led to the grassroots phenomenon of Donald Trump's election.
Social media companies deceive their users by manipulating their attention, directing it towards their own commercial purposes, and deliberately engineering addiction to the services they provide. This can be very harmful, particularly for adolescents.
All very true. But this doesn't explain Trump, which Soros takes for granted to be a catastrophe. Everyone is swimming in the same internet waters, after all.
There is a similarity between internet platforms and gambling companies. Casinos have developed techniques to hook customers to the point that they gamble away all of their money, even money they don’t have.
Something similar – and potentially irreversible – is happening to human attention in our digital age. This is not a matter of mere distraction or addiction; social media companies are actually inducing people to surrender their autonomy. 
George has been reading recent criticisms of social media. I like the casino analogy, that we're basically spending time we don't have and the most vulnerable--the young, women, the unsophisticated--are most at risk.
And this power to shape people’s attention is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few companies.
Very true. And George doesn't like that, because it still allowed for the election of Donald Trump, who he equates with Kim Jong Un at one point. But it's curious--those few companies pitched in to elect a president, and a very divisive one in Obama, and have opposed Trump not only with their money and political actions but with ideological censorship, and have only helped Trump's cause to the extent they've offered a free and fair--an "open"--environment for people to associate, just as it did for Soros' well-funded efforts there.
 It takes significant effort to assert and defend what John Stuart Mill called the freedom of mind. 
As Sargon would say "have you read your Locke, sir? Even?"
Once lost, those who grow up in the digital age may have difficulty regaining it. This would have far-reaching political consequences. People without the freedom of mind can be easily manipulated. This danger does not loom only in the future; it played an important role in the 2016 US presidential election.
The freedom of mind of the mass is the last thing George wants. It's the last thing any of us wants, really. Though I want the mass to be rehabilitated and weaned off porn and the poz, while George wants them weaned off of nationalism, religion and identity.
Moreover, US law has adopted a strange doctrine that measures harm as an increase in the price paid by customers for services received. But that is almost impossible to prove, given that most giant Internet platforms provide a majority of their services for free. Moreover, the doctrine leaves out of consideration the valuable data that platform companies collect from their users.
Indeed. Information monopolies aren't a problem because they overcharge for their services, but because they give them away. They're like the guy in the old joke who thinks he'll charge zero for his product and make up for the loss on volume, and they kind of do.

 No, we pay in other ways and I don't mean the loss of privacy when they sell our data, but in the loss of spirit, when we indulge their delights, such as they are.
We pay mightily.
