does yellow make me look fat?


DOES YELLOW MAKE ME LOOK FAT?
Will we see a Yellow Vest movement here in this country?  I can’t imagine how.  Now, I know what you are thinking.  Gee, Jim, France is full of conservative White dudes and feminists and politically correct douches and OtherColor immigrants.  They have high taxes and the elite take all the money impoverishing the masses, while crooked politicians smile as they lie to your face and stab you in your back.  And voting doesn’t seem to change anything.  Just like in the US.  So why wouldn’t we emulate their mass protests?  Why couldn’t we set aside our differences?
*
I don’t want to say the French are smarter than we, as they too get a state propaganda school indoctrination.  And I don’t think our taxes are much less than theirs.  Ours are merely better hidden.  They have the same kinds of institutions screwing the commoners.  They came from an empire so there is that similarity.  Both countries had to violently clash with the elites in the past to get better Industrial workers pay and safety conditions, and both countries are post-industrial now.  They are Catholic rather than Protestant, but that should matter little now.
*
It has to be a cultural quirk.  In France, there seems to be a general consensus of economic equality.  Everyone is on a broad wage parity.  It isn’t socialism as much as it is stronger nationalism.  In the US, we all act like we are equal, but we are all busy being the most equal pig of all by accumulating the most money.  In France, it is rude to talk about money, but not sex.  In the US, we are too puritan to admit sex takes place, but have no problem rubbing our money in everyone’s faces. 
*
All the ‘Murican centric pundits blather on about how Frenchies are lazy welfare dole scumbags.  I’m sorry, but I kind of still appreciate how France saved our asses from the English, and I admire their stones telling NATO to piss off and for insisting on real gold over those puny Dollars.  And hell, that was back when a dollar still bought stuff.  The French prefer to equalize earnings and ensure social stability.  We have plenty of socialism ourselves, but it is corporate welfare.  But the point is, you can’t judge others by your preferred culture.  The French would prefer to keep the guillotines packed away.
*
The US has absolutely no shared culture and no social stability.  The French might hate each other, but not as much as they hate the elites dismantling their country to benefit the globalists.  In the US, we ALL just love the globalists ( the right want to be them and the left want to profit off them ), but despise each other because we are fighting amongst ourselves for the shrinking pie those globalists graciously leave us.  The French have common cause, the 99% against the 1%.  In the US, we think we can still become a one percenter so fight the other 99%’ers.
*
And in the US, we are much more violent.  The French are great at community violence.  When they get hungry, they are very good at taking back what is theirs.  Injustice doesn’t last long.  Americans are great at individual violence.  Sure, we don’t do so poorly at war, but in a cultural sense we are more individualistic than collective.  This makes us great at decentralized violence, but for now it also divides and conquers us.  The French have been, mostly, homogenizing for a very long time.  We never stayed there unless bribed.
*
And since the bribe money is gone, so is our acting as if we don’t hate everyone else.  Think about our very large early culture group, the Celts.  They don’t play well with others.  Not amongst their own clans and not with outsiders.  They were tribes not well suited to settle for a nation.  Just like the Afghans.  We still are over in their country, but we’ll never defeat them.  They can outlast us.  And our early Scots-Irish were not subdued for centuries. Even then, it is just a question out waiting out the occupiers. 
*
There is also the difference in those types of occupiers.  The French have centuries long culture unifying them, and usurpers and occupiers come and go, but the culture rebounds.  Americans have the same occupiers from centuries before the Revolution, the English aristocracy.  The Revolution was about the crown princes of the colony refusing fealty to the home country.  It was a wealth grab.  It was NEVER about the common people becoming free.  The Civil War was actually a civil war, despite my insistence on labeling it the War Of Northern Aggression.  One royal house fought the other for control of the new wealth.
*
Yes, state’s rights verses federal control was a central issue.  The Industrial Revolution destroying the control of the Agricultural Revolution another.  But never fool yourself into thinking our elites ever lost control over the little people.  It was just a royal food fight.  My point here is that to this day we are peasants under control of the kings, but TRIBAL peasants.  The French really did overthrow their kings.  We did not.  Just because we know that the king uses the tribes against each other for control doesn’t mean we can unify.  We cannot.  We are tribes, for humps sake.
*
Tribes don’t surrender their independence.  It doesn’t matter if at the present day that is beneficial or harmful.  In the long run tribes prevail.  It is a Long Game success, just as it has been for hundreds of thousands of years.  France can unify because they are a French Tribe, and they are merely kicking out the latest usurper, the globalists.  I’m heartened by the Yellow Vest movement, not because Americans will follow, but because it is the first defeat of the globalists ( and the Muslims will be casualty, just as other religions were bloodily expelled in the past ).
*
I also like the Yellow Vests just because the French have always been the cool kids on the block, the rebels.  They do it their way.  You have to admire that.  But over here we do things differently.  We aren’t the cool gang, we are just a gang.  We have little class, just being violent thugs.  And we like it that way.  The rest of the world admires that because for the most part ( in the more civilized areas, outside sub-Saharan Africa ) they are domesticated farmers and we are far more wild variants.
*
The world didn’t admire our capitalistic Coca-Cola and McDonald’s, they liked our violence.  Up to the point it stopped being directed at other people’s oppressors, of course.  Hollywood was globally relevant until the message stopped being about violence for its own sake and more communist party rhetoric.  They don’t need a reminder of communism overseas, duh!  Way before Star Wars rebooted Pretty Princess, our movies went full retard when they stopped sending the message that sold.  You guys want to make big bucks again?  There you go.  Please send consulting fees via my PayPal address listed below.
*
I’ll touch more on us rather than the French, tomorrow.  More on guerrilla war and the elites divide and conquer and why it isn’t as harmful as it seems to hate our potential allies.

socialism as bailout


SOCIALISM AS BAILOUT
Okay, so I’m reading The Burning Platform and there is once again the obligatory thrice daily screed against evil socialism.  Not that I care for the practice.  Fascism works much better as it injects capitalist discipline into the tax and spend paradigm.  Oh, and if you thought fascism is evil because Hitler, your school teachers lied like rugs to you there, Little Johnny.  What is the military industrial complex if not fascism?  All you cheese dinguses that got overpaid for your house in California and then moved your rancid carcass out of state to pollute better states?  Thank fascism. 
*
Hey, I like national socialism.  Of all the big daddy government schemes it works the best.  If we actually did go to the moon, you can thank national socialists for that.  And, as a bonus, the system usually doesn’t invite in private central bankers ( usually ).  So, I am agreeing with everyone that socialism sucks.  But here is my problem.  Just as communism was used to enslave, kill and control Americans by our own government who ended up being much scarier and deadly than the Soviets, now our own handlers are using the threat of socialism to control us.
*
I mean, sure, this is nothing new.  Since China opened for business and globalism took over from communism as a control mechanism, twenty-five years or so ago, ultra uber-capitalism was used as an excuse to shrink wages and eliminate industries.  Oh, free market banking.  Translation, no regulations to stop banks from taking over the world.  Oh, glory, no socialist Unions increasing costs.  Translation, we are only going to pay you half of what you just got.  Our god, competition.  Translation, all your jobs are going over to China.  Globalism sold as capitalism, under threat of socialism.
*
So that is nothing new.  But now we have the bestest and brightest new idea to come down the pike to enrich our bankster owners.  REAL socialism.  Not for the sake of socialism as used in all the scare tactic articles.  You know, all those free crap army masses get free college and free health care and-BOOM-before you know it we are eating zoo animals and each other like Venezuela.  News flash there chief, that country didn’t go tits up from socialism.  It did so because all their fuel is NOT real oil, conventional crude.
*
It is Fake Fuel on par with our fracking oil fuel, and the world needs that kind of fuel least of all.  As economic activity globally heads down the crapper, less fuel is needed to support activity and the least useful fuels are not wanted or needed.  No need for your only export and there goes your economy.  NOT because of the dysfunctional type of government it has.  ALL the governments in this hemisphere are dysfunctional.  If stupid ass welfare states are guaranteed to implode, why is Canada doing okay?  California?  Venezuela refused our PetroDollar.  We tried a coup but that failed.
*
We then priced them out of the fake fuel market by flooding it with our fake fuel supported not by taxes but by printing PetroDollars.  It’s good to be king, yes?  Anyway, the proposed socialism isn’t your South American socialism ( although we are a banana republic ).  That silly little Latino slut that just got (s)elected in one of the AmComParty blue states, it is her brand of socialism.  Which is not about jobs or affordable housing or anything useful, it is about two things.  Health care and free college are what is being pushed.  Now, pop quiz here.
*
What are the two industries that are monopolies and that enrich only the elite?  Health care and college.  Little Latino Slut might very well be retarded, but that misses the point.  She wants to advance her feminist agenda ( only girls in college hence in jobs, OtherColors overwhelmingly holding health care employment positions ), and hence she really believes she is on a mission from her FemiNazi god ( and speaking of fake religions, that New Testament touchy feely weepy crap they push is just disguised feminism.  Old Testament was too toxic masculinity ).  But her minor deity serves the God Of Gods, Mammon.
*
College debt-JUST the debt and not even factoring all the other money channels like the Harvard investment funds or state and fed taxes-is a bigger industry than credit cards.  Health care is something like 20% of the economy.  Making those two industries MORE of a cash cow would be a huge coup.  So what do you do?  Make it look like all those evil democrats and socialists are muscling their agenda into a cash giveaway to the Black and illegals.  So our anger is directed at all the wrong targets.  Just like Food Stamps.
*
The Rush Limbaugh Brigade screeches at the top of their girly lungs about how the Great Depression was the good old days when lazy non-workers were actually allowed to starve, or as a special bonus made to suffer for some time with malnutrition instead ( hey, it was just Toxic Southerner Deplorables and darkies who were suffering.  Serves them right for standing in the way of industrial and banking progress.  Or at least their grandfathers ).  The welfare recipients are blamed, as billionaires are revered and celebrated because ONLY the rich work hard and deserve their wealth. 
*
I maintain that Food Stamps, while serving social engineering purposes, are primarily about enriching the rich, the big ag corporations and the electronic card transaction banks, with a bonus thrown in to some grocery chains.  Least you forget, Wal-Mart was all in on Obammy’s push to double Food Stamps ( I refuse to call it SNAP-just like I’m not calling Blacks African-Americans ), AND ObammyCare.  And before I have to hear some bullcrap about how I’m envious of the rich, here is a preemptive Hump You.  You are a globalist toady, so just Hump You, and even your dog.
*
These same people made you subservient to females and OtherColors, after taking all the jobs and moving them overseas, and you want me to celebrate the oligarchy by pretending they are capitalists?  You want me to celebrate the bankers taking over the economy by mindlessly worshiping the philosophy of a long dead proponent of mercantilism?  You want me to excuse my tribe banishing me so as to enrich themselves with MORE hookers and blow?  See the above as to the sexual adventures of your canine companion.  The bankers are getting another bailout, and it is called socialism.  And I refuse to blame the wrong group for it.

most honorable rice 2


MOST HONORABLE RICE 2
Just as Napoleon derided the English as “a bunch of shopkeepers”, impugning their martial powers, today you see a lot of the “Chinese have a long tradition of being merchants, where cheating customers is seen as normal and expected”.  This implies that ‘Murican’s are special and wonderful and will program drones to shoot all those cheating lying commie bastards.  Of course, Russian Jews over in Israel are probably programming the computers now, but you don’t let facts get in the way of good state propaganda, now do you?  Trash talking Others makes your dysfunctional empire look better.
*
Let us not overlook WHY the Chinese are such good little merchants.  The Chinese go back almost before anyone else with big daddy government, paper currency and taxes paid in said currency.  How else are you going to keep your head? You need money, you engage in the consumer economy on the supply side.  The system has obviously been successful, enabling large armies and an overseas network of commerce and trade that both sends money back home, is a safety valve for domestic overpopulation, and doubles as a military spy network.  Those wily Chinese outlasted the French and the Americans.
*
So, you could say that government greed and built in corruption and ineptitude built a long lasting economic empire, and it has proven far more durable than any military one.  By crafting this culture, any governmental shortcomings can be overcome and compensated for.  Recovery to a functioning society is quicker and more assured.  I’m sure all the Libertarian folk will be dropping deuces in their drawers at any suggestion that any government intrusion has any positive effect.  I simply see a cultural adaptation to constant overpopulation and resource overexploitation.  It seems to work well for them, long term.
*
As the NSA makes the Statsi look like a bunch of chin drooling imbecilic slackers, and as we all look up startled with bovine glazed over inattention at the very mention that an ‘Murican citizen can be detained indefinitely without charges, I’m sure that the suggestion that any culture is freer than ours simply confuses you.  But in a lot of ways those countries with functional intact cultures are superior to ours with a supposed freedom granted by an overreaching federal government.  What I’m hinting at is that we are indeed our own rice culture, rather than a Yeoman European one.
*
Look out your window, and what do you see?  Asphalt.  Power lines.  Your proud sheet metal chariot.  All using imported oil.  Are you going to try to tell me that these are any different than centralized government built rice paddies?  You can act as macho as you wish and posture as much as you’d like, but you are individually completely impotent and completely dependent on Big Daddy Gov.  Your individual power was broken by New England merchants building factories to replace your muscles, your local government and now your gender.  Your guns are at the mercy of their factories.
*
And before you go all half cocked over how you are free and independent, consider your neighbors.  They are not, so neither are you.  They will see to that.  You as a prepper are independent and capable of SHORT term disruptions, but the systems and institutions surrounding you are centralist and collectivist and you are a mere island in a sea.  You may not be dependent on that overseas oil, but the millions around you are.  Their enslavement becomes your defacto one.  You must abide by the system or be crushed by it.  So yes, you share the system.
*
By everyone being dependent on the system, everyone complies.  There has been no rebellion for freedom against a very unfree government because everyone is dependent of that rice paddy providing food.  If you bribe the government you get to eat.  Now, don’t take that as a criticism.  THAT is just reality.  Humans are collectivists.  From your fellow tribes members up to the Chinese super state.  You ALWAYS bribe the collective to eat.  In a tribe, you pledge unthinking loyalty with your body as collateral.  In a mega  collective you pledge your earnings and partial health.
*
Yes, we’ve talked about this.  Belonging to a tribe sees you as a member and an equal partner whereas a government sees little value in preserving your life.  Tribe is a much better organization, and the eating is usually better ( BBQ verses rice gruel ).  BUT.  You are still never free.  Males must be willing to die in combat and females must be willing to subvert reproduction choices to the group.  It is a preferable sacrifice, but you NEVER get to be a group of free will individuals.  That is simply unicorn dreams.  You want group strength you defer to the group.
*
We all bitch and moan like little girls about our freedom, then happily auction it off in exchange for luxuries like food security.  We complain a few pieces of paper or a philosophy aren’t allowed to provide us our freedom, then refuse to fight for those rights.  You don’t get to pretend you are more noble and righteous than I, when neither of us fight for our rights.  I’m just more aware why I’ll never get that freedom.  I like my rice gruel, or I’d be in the mountains eating tree bark and stealing government convoy supplies.
*
Fables and legends are necessary to form the narrative we wish to follow.  There is nothing wrong with having the impossible to follow stories of noble Minutemen or ghosts of Confederate guerrillas.  But how you use them is important.  If they are motivators and teachers, or if they are just fantasies covering inaction.  I’m not claiming we can survive without bribing the builders of the rice paddies.  I’m just saying you are a bitch in prison yet somehow think you are a guard, the warden or even the governor. Free your mind first, grasshopper.

most honorable rice


MOST HONORABLE RICE
Now, understand that I surely do welcome our Sino Overlords; all hail, yo!  But until that time, I like to make fun of Ornamentals.  They are funny.  So are Bush Bitches, but they get all bent out of shape when you make fun of them.  And they have all the time in the world to take it personally.  Asians are too busy taking over the world, and they simply don’t care what us round eyes think.  But I can tell you.  You also know how I feel about rice.  That crap be all kinds of nasty.  White maggots.
*
What can you do with rice?  Boiled.  What can you do with wheat?  Bread, tortillas, flat bread, gruel, biscuits, waffles, muffins, sprouted, pancakes, pretzels, donuts, bagels.  How can you store wheat?  Nutritious whole grain.  How can you store rice?  ONLY by separating the hull, making it empty calories ( if you store brown rice, unless it is on a very strict FIFO rotation, you are storing rancid oil ).  How much does flour or whole kernel wheat cost?  Half the cost of rice.  What kind of prepper stores rice?  I shan’t even begin to point fingers or name names.  Got FLIR scopes with that rice?
*
Sorry, I had to say it.  I’ll leave the confused and irrational dietary choice alone for now.  Today’s topic is “rice culture”.  Not as in eating but as in food production, and how that determines gender roles in society.  This is a theory from anthropology, and like all theories from that field that provided the shock troops of the FemiNazi movement ( for whatever reason, pink hat wearing Cat Lady carpet lickers took over the study in the rather early twentieth century, and gayed the crap out of it with communist filters ), it must be taken with salt.
*
It makes sense, this theory, but of course I reserve the right to change my opinion of it if I discover it is yet another Trojan Horse sent in to castrate culture.  What it says is that whatever your crop cultivation method is has a direct bearing on the gender roles in your society.  Hence, if only brute strength will plow wet clay in Northern Europe, then males are more highly valued and will dominate over females.  But if either a male or female can equally stoop over and plant/pull up a rice stalk in a paddy, both are equally valued.
*
Obviously this isn’t a straight line correlation, as females must still breed and males must still fight.  It isn’t JUST gender roles, as government plays a very strong role.  But in general, cultivation  influences gender equality as much as it bespeaks of the government you will have.  This isn’t rocket science, either.  You can trace female liberation in this country by the means of production.  When brute strength was needed to build the Industrial Revolution, males kept the traditional roles of breadwinner and protector.  Once that was done, males were replaced by robots.
*
Once males were required only for sperm donors, once their economic utility was close to zero, they lost all power.  You had better hope the Fracking fields dry up before they elect a female president and it actually becomes a criminal offence to pack a penis ( unless that penis is grafted on over a slit, or covered in fecal material, in which case you may be an honorary female ).  One imagines sperm will be flown over on dry ice from China.  Don’t worry, we have plenty of planes left over from the Toxic Masculinity Era.  No need to worry about the Diversity Hire Mechanics performance.
*
Honestly, if there is an afterlife, I greatly look forward to laughing my ass off as I observe an entire continent wiped out in genocide after females take over completely, then are invaded and put to the torch. Any invader worth his salt knows to wipe out the whole bunch, least any Bitch Power Advocates survive and go over and contaminate the Home Countries population.  Like an invasive species the agriculture inspectors are searching for as you cross the border.  But it is far from about sexism alone. Big Daddy Gov is a bigger factor.
*
What food you produce also determines your government.  China was not the longest civilization ( read, oppressive centralized government ) because Ornamentals are intrinsically “hive mind” as so many speculate.  They are that way because of… ( drum roll, please ) that nasty crap rice.  That is right, capitalists with globalist sympathies, the only reason your civilization was free rather than full of centralized serfs ( you know, like in Roman times ) was because of the DE-centralization of the crops that could grow in northern Europe. 
*
In climates that required centralized works to grow crops ( it is the climate more so than the crop ), you got centralized government.  And yes, I realize it is NOT that simplistic.  Sometimes, you got centralized government just on military terms alone.  The Slavs and the threat of the Mongols comes to mind, in climate similar to other Northern Europeans who had decentralized crops also.  Again, a general rule.  In general, high mountains equate to free tribes.  An exception was the Inca’s.  There are always exceptions.  Deal with a world not so Black and White.  The general rules underscore trends.
*
Why aren’t females more equal in Ornamental traditional families?  After all, centralized government raises mass armies and conducts public works projects, and both sexes always seem to be draft animals for the government. Why didn’t Chinese females abort all the male fetuses during the One Child Policy?  I can only guess, as Asian studies are certainly NOT my area of interest.  But here goes.  Culture is biological law.  When government enforces that natural law you have a smooth running civilization.  When you defy those biological norms you get a dysfunctional society.  Run a civilization long enough, you learn a thing or two.
*
And you can imagine that all this feminist crap was tried.  It always is.  Just as males would prefer to spread their seed far and wide and not stick around for paternal duties, females are just like ALL humans and are lazy and greedy ( it is a survival mechanism after all ). If you allow them, culturally, to be stupid and slothful, they will be.  So you just know some dumb ass Ornamental despot somewhere somewhen had a ball busting concubine that pushed that FemiNazi crap and he made it the law of the land.  And then, promptly, they were invaded and the loyal couple lost their heads.
*
Humans are far too stupid individually to stop making the same mistake time and again.  General Darwin always steps in and on behalf of the good of the species, straightens that stupid crap right on out.  That is our future, by the way.  I see no Hitlerian strong man forcing our culture back from the progressives.  The Hippies and their junk science ( crystal healing, Gore Warming, soy ) have chemically neutered far too many penis carriers.  Hitler had an entire generation of war vets who had combat experience both in the field and in the city streets against the communists.  They rallied to his side to take back the culture.
*
What do we have?  A system that can only be freed after a cleansing.  Continued tomorrow.

nice while it lasted 2


NICE WHILE IT LASTED 2
Hunger, true hunger such as Victorian England offered all the lower class scumbags who had refused to move over to America, thus freeing up the nobility from dealing with their social inferiors as they simply wanted to go about their day unmolested as they gazed in awe at their human-less machines ( the upper class everywhere want more machines and less Deplorables-I can’t believe the idiots who think robotics are about giving their poor ass leisure time ), can be a powerful motivator for excellent writing.  Dicken’s A Christmas Carol was about the true spirit of feeding the author during Christmas time.
*
The Great Depression was a breeding ground for some of the best writers to come ( L Ron Hubbard the exception, and perhaps the best proof that selling your soul to Beelzebub was actually possible ).  Poverty and hunger do light a fire under the best of us.  Of course, both societies took it too far, actually condoning real malnutrition as the penalty for failure.  Lack of funds, leading to lack of a wife which was a rather stiff Reproduction Tax, that should have been enough punishment.
*
At the moment there is a bit of yearning for those on Food Stamps to be cut off during the government shut down.  I’ll of course remind you that while in session the politicians are in Washington DC.  Which is a couple of nice streets around monuments surrounded by war torn ghettos full of said recipients.  Do you REALLY think the fedgov is going to allow that tinderbox to catch?  You cannot decide to starve out those you hate, and expect to live in a functioning society.  Britain lost its nobility and we turned socialist when that happened.
*
Hunger is a great motivation, but starvation is not a good motivator for positive change.  And that is the way I see the general direction of things moving, with the Internet Alternate Income Streams and the wave of censorship.  Follow me here.  Females, OtherColors and Diversity Hires all push older White Males out of the workforce.  A lot of these men with an ounce of motivation and talent went into Internet businesses.  Most hang on by bringing advertisers from TV to the Internet ( marginal content, but well supported by consumerism ).  But a lot of talent is also supported that way.
*
But then two opposing forces collided.  The mainstream companies desperately trying to remain profitable embrace PC so as to pull on the purse strings of the remaining job holders, which means they cannot support anything non-Politically Correct.  And there goes the ad model to support those Casper’s working on the Internet.  Suddenly, quality starts to matter again.  Everyone wants your Patreon support, but you can only spend X amount on entertainment each month, so only the better content wins. And that is how it should be, but only up to a certain percent.
*
So prevalent is the capitalism or nothing system which is actually globalism, most people applaud their own destruction.  No Free Riders, No Welfare, No Free Crap Army, Produce Or Starve, all are well and good under a truly free market system.  But NOT under a fixed manipulated mercantilism system where the cheaters get socialized loses and private gains.  And the masses starve willing to work.  Every time that someone starts to get back ahead in this fixed system, the rules are changed on them.  You’re not allowed to work until you are 22-26 now, as opposed to the old 16-18.
*
Then they stopped allowing you to work until retirement.  Since all the management jobs are now OtherColors and Diversity Hires, you can’t work your way up into management.  Which effectively ends your manual labor career about twenty years too early.  So, you are a hard worker and smart, you start an Internet business to finish out your working years.  But now THAT is being taken away.  Censorship is killing a lot of businesses that could have endured.  They weren’t great, but they were Yeoman performers.  But we can’t have any but the highest performers now, can we?
*
By refusing to subsidize any jobs except all those held by women and  OtherColors, by refusing to allow marginal workers to stay employed, you are increasing social discord and fomenting rebellion.  It is all well and good for the elites to keep everyone in poverty.  But when you remove hope or advancement, and just keep increasing the suffering, you can guarantee blowback.  There wasn’t THAT many prepping writers or merchandise purveyors, or YouTube channels that it employed any fraction of displaced White workers.  The point was it was a beacon of hope for the entire number of disenfranchised.
*
We didn’t care that we had to give up suburbia.  We never wanted it in the first place.  Better to go live in a trailer park and socialize face to face.  There are plenty of poor working class out there and no shame in joining them.  But that was even too much to ask for.  Rich people who couldn’t possibly need more money all colluded to take away that safety net of niche micro-businesses.  It wasn’t that they were removing the only venue to publish.  It was that they were taking away the Low Cost way to do so.
*
When you are a micro-business, you can only do that by having close to zero expenses.  You could start a YouTube channel with a discarded cell phone ( from someone Status Symbol-ing up ), get a dedicated camera for $75 at Wal-Mart, and even improve the sound with a specialized microphone for not much more than that.  But you could start with zero additional cost.  If you were a writer, without a computer, at most a new machine could cost $130 for a ChromeBook.  That was writing, editing and publishing along with revenue collection.  Just broke White Boys needed that low cost start.
*
Now, anyone can still start for free.  And then, they see all that blood and sweat and tears de-monetized.  Anyone can start.  Anyone can succeed.  They have to jump through hoops now, but if you figure out how to get readers or viewers, you can still do it.  My question is, do most people still want to try it?  By crushing the dreams ( and even if we KNOW it is a fantasy, we still would pursue the dream ), by turning this into a rigged game, you get a lot fewer players.  Throwing in the towel happens quicker.
*
Remember those video stores out there at one time?  You had a LOT of movies being made for $100k to under a mil.  There were terrible movies, but if you wanted to watch a movie every single weekend, or especially all weekend long, you watched them gladly, accepting them for what they were.  Second tier was okay as long as it was entertaining.  Like today’s “Sharknado”.  Or those giant gators in a New York lake movies.  I know there are still a lot being made for the same price, cable movies or for streaming, but they aren’t as good as video movies.
*
Cable or streaming, you’ve already paid prior to watching.  Video companies would lose customers in the form of a store buying LOTS of tapes if they didn’t offer some level of quality, and they had to meet high expenses.  It was a form of editing for quality.  And when I say quality, I don’t mean acting or plot or special effects being all that great.  It just had to be entertaining.  Most of today’s movies don’t have that, regardless of budget.  Video stores allowed amateurs to enter, as long as they were talented.
*
Today, the Internet is going from a video store era to a Hollywood monopoly where only the golden few are allowed a voice.  Sure, the viewers are hurt, but more importantly for our discussion here, the talented but broke are not being allowed to participate in that economy.  In Hollywood, controlling the distribution keeps out the poor.  On the Internet, the threat is from distribution also.  The monopolists are denying distribution AND banking to the small and scrappy.  But worse, denying you that access AFTER you become successful, rather than just denying access to begin. 
*
You might be thinking that ONLY reading the best and successful is better.  But it isn’t.  Everyone is trying to stay safe and inoffensive.  It is BORING!  You get a few weeks of stress and panic which increases content enjoyment, and then it goes back to safe and dull.  They almost lost their minds, panicking about the stock market, but realized they need to go back to safely plodding along.  Now it is back to boring in the Survivalist Sector.  I know, I know, you can’t always be “on”.  There are slow days.  But every day?  I miss the Xerox and mail ‘zine days.  Full on non-stop passion. 
*
That did carry over to the Internet, and lasted a good long while.  And then the Puritan Police moved in and started raiding the Speakeasies.

nice while it lasted


NICE WHILE IT LASTED
Well, that sure was nice while it lasted.  For nearly three weeks, the Doom-O-Sphere was chockablock full of really good interesting analysis.  It was a time of plenty.  Annnnddd, it’s gone.  To be clear, I’m speaking of original ideas, true fear porn as opposed to the manufactured, and something besides the regular treading of water that accompanies most of our journey’s in between paydays.  What, you think prepper writers don’t get burned out and are just desperately trying to keep revenue flowing by pulling stuff out of their ass?  You don’t think Stephen King ever published a piece of crap?
*
You don’t think Rawles had a single good fiction book after his initial one, did you?  Of course, NO one is as bad as James Patterson at Paypay Padding, just throwing out any old crap for a paycheck.  Sure, he is no worse than 90% of the New York publishers pablum pushed to the lowest common denominator, but his weak ass lame excuses for his behavior ( “TV shows have multiple authors”.  Sure dude, and they push out TV quality ) upset me along with the fact that he gives Jim’s the world over a sullied name. 
*
I don’t know why I get so upset that 90% of all survivalist writers out there are not only NOT writers, they are only in it for the pay.  I shouldn’t be surprised, nor should I assume our industry should be any different.  Actually, I think it is far worse.  Far too many are hacks merely copying others works, and mucking that up badly.  Hell, Kurt Saxon was mostly media whore and not much for writing.  But at least he was sincere and did offer value.  No one else had Po Boys covered like he did.
*
This is an age old argument, so I shouldn’t even be rehashing it.  The artist being offended others ideals are not as pure.  The well fed artist at that, because it is only easy to say “only do what you love” when you won’t go hungry.  But can we really say that any of these hacks are in danger of starvation?  They just want Mo Money.  So, if none of us really need the money, doesn’t artistic authenticity matter even more than ever?  The guys I love and respect ( even if their advice blows ) are those in it for the right reasons.
*
Woodpile Report’s ‘Ol Remus and Commander Zero of Notes From The Bunker, they aren’t in it for the money.  I am, but I also wrote for free for many years before I semi-retired to make this my only paycheck.  And you get added value for that.  The YouTube silver guy Truth Never Told, he harps on and on about the same old thing, but ALWAYS adds something extra that is new and unique.  He talks about the coming global cash and such, every episode, but then gives you bonus material such as, we are down to ONE raw silver ore processor domestically.
*
Or, did you know that the entire number of drug SWAT raids in the country was just 3,300 last year?  Of course, that was JUST drugs.  There were others, such as the Mayberry Police raiding over unreturned library books, but that was only because they have to run the armored car a couple of times a year or all the fluids starts breaking down.  His point was that if the huge payback ( and drugs pay the gov huge ) of drugs only saw that many SWAT raids, what are the odds SWAT will actually go after precious metals ( he was talking of another gov PM confiscation )?
*
In Turd World crapholes, if you want something done such as letting your innocent fellow travelers out of jail, or to get the doctor to see you, or the phone hooked up, you need to bribe someone.  Here in the US where we have rule of law, everyone is paid too well to risk being bribed.  So no one does anything, either.  Unless there is extra LEGAL money involved.  Like asset forfeiture or revenue enhancement fees and fines.  You wonder which system is more efficient.
*
Anyway, the reason I like this guy is that he is passionate.  He really thinks silver is the best asset.  Not as in “bribe the bandits to spare you”, which is the stupidest survival strategy of all time, but as in a wealth preserver to hand down to your heirs true money.  He understands the difference between economic and civilization collapse, so he isn’t a one trick pony.  But he is a man On A Mission From God.  So how can you fault him if he happens to make a bit of coin on the side, right?  A brother has to eat. 
*
I don’t think the Internet has ruined it for publishers.  It isn’t that everyone wants something for free.  No, I think the big difference is that now we can actually demand quality.  Sure, you are going to get the Free Riders problem.  They will never go away.  There was always someone too miserly to crack open the McScrooge Duck vault and reward a good writer, and who only ever went to the library.  But they are rare.  You don’t punish all readers for those few.  Authors always had to give material away to alert new readers they existed.
*
Being able to ONLY spend money on the best, or best liked, makes it even harder to be a writer ( or YouTube Dude ).  Your customers have limited funds and now they don’t have to make an upfront purchase of a book or a periodical subscription.  They can reduce spending to only proven publications.  In a shrinking economy, how else could it work?  Folks have little choice in the matter.  The Internet might shrink publishing costs, but all your customer’s bills are jacked up.  In the end, you still get less because there is less to spend.
*
I wonder how much of the angst over censorship is really about free speech, and how much is about this new model of publication being threatened.  Most people are NOT readers.  In times past, when New York published real writers ( pre-Patterson ), the percentage of the population that read as a hobby was 5%.  New York tried to increase that number by dumbing down content to appeal to a broader audience.  Like Hollywood does.  Now, as all the purchasing power has shifted to females ( who are taking all the jobs ), they have gone full retard Pink Hat Cat Lady.
*
It wasn’t bad enough we had crap to pick from in books, as far as quality, now we get propaganda shoved down our throats as well.  I mean, come on!  Science Fiction?  Who knew gals liked that?  Well, throw in enough PC and anti-biology, and I guess they will get to enjoy it.  The only problem is, you’ll never get another Phillip K. Dick that way.  Females ONLY empowered by Bitches Power aren’t writing because they love to write but because they want Justice Now, End The Phallic Oppression, Now! 
*
I don’t know if this is to most of your liking.  Perhaps I babble to no purpose.  But I’m going to continue this tomorrow, anyway.  You know what they say about randy dogs on your leg or about me on a inspired rant-just let him keep going until he’s done.
