Death to Me!

Another Soviet comparison by David Mikics at Tablet:

Stalin’s most celebrated victims were themselves used to humiliation and self-abasement. As Robert Conquest writes in his indispensable book The Great Terror, “Their surrender was not a single and exceptional act in their careers, but the culmination of a whole series of submissions to the Party that they knew to be ‘objectively’ false.” Conquest tells of a former member of the Soviet Supreme Court who was informed by an interrogator, “Well, the Party demands that you, as a Bolshevik, confess that you are an English spy.” The man responded: “If the Party demands it, I confess.”

It is hard to imagine that the authors of the present confessions know anything to be ‘objectively’ false.

“Our harassment training makes clear that what matters is how an act makes the victims feel,” wrote the Times staffers. Even if McNeil “didn’t act maliciously or with hateful intent,” they added, that doesn’t matter, since “intent is irrelevant.”

Another difference. In the good old days intent mattered, it was the star of the show both as sincere sacrifice to the party and as the falsity to confess to. In the Zombie version without brains intent can play no role.

The Trojan Horse

James Lindsay, in particular, has become an authority on the academic foundation of Zombie brain consumption (New Discourses).

J Scott Turner even uses the true name: The Brainworms Come For Big Science.

The ACLU has suffered a significant loss of cortex: The ACLU must fight for liberty, not social justice, The Disintegration of the ACLU.

Lama Abu Odeh uses such words as minoritarianism and progressoriat.

The Doublethinkers

Dmitry Orlov suggests something similar to the collapse of the USSR is imminent but it seems that thought patterns are still becoming more those of the USSR itself, witnessed by Scott Aaronson and now Natan Sharansky: The Doublethinkers.

The Kolmogorov option

In the wake of the Jame Damore kerfuffle Scott Aaronson speaks about speaking out, without speaking out:

The Kolmogorov option

And then thinks better of the latter:

Reflections

Curtis Yarvin reflects on the state of things soon after the ballot wizardry.

Ultimately, I am glad Trump lost, because Trump was more than just a liar—he was a lie. As soon as he accepted the fraud that he was actually in charge of the government, he became complicit in a fraud against his own supporters. They could never understand why he didn’t “do something” about this, that, or the other thing.

He could have told them why; he could have even worked to change that. He was given the choice between looking and feeling important, and realizing and revealing that he wasn’t important. He chose as he did. Given that he did, his defeat at the hands of the ballot wizards of the Midwest may have been legal injustice—but it was divine justice.

Asserting Dominance?

Time publishes an article that seems to be someone letting us know that they know that we know, and that they don’t care that we know. Or perhaps to let others that don’t know know just what they want them to know rather than have information lead them to know what they don’t want them to know.

Collapse

Dmitry Orlov on a coming collapse: “Watch this!”

The collapse of the USA will make the collapse of the USSR look like a stroll through a leafy park and a boat ride on a placid pond. I’ve been saying this for 15 years now. My message is still there, for all those who wish to understand what’s been happening and to keep their sanity.

 

Srdja Trifkovic has a less extreme take: A Silver Lining in the Election Debacle , stressing mainly decline in international standing. 

In the eyes of much of the world the United States is now reduced to the status of a banana republic.

The file distributed by the Senator included a law school faculty report, dated Dec. 1, 1965, that concluded that Mr. Biden had ”used five pages from a published law review article without quotation or attribution” and that he ought to be failed in the legal methods course for which he had submitted the 15-page paper.
