Idiocy?

Well, sort of. Idiots do what they do. But someone has empowered them.

That didn't happen from idiocy but denial of reality. "If I do this, what will the consequences be? Well, who cares? It's all about whether it makes me seem generous and kind to other people."

And then everyone else, not wanting to get left behind, "competes" and does the same.

Follow the lead follower... straight to doom.

Here's the real villain here:

Quote
A customer service representative with the SAQ told the commission that he had seen hostile letters from customers before, but nothing like this one.

He consulted with legal services and was advised to contact the police. Montreal police said they couldn't take the complaint from a third party and that it had to come from the victim herself.

The SAQ then made the decision to share the letter with the woman, who was advised by the police to file a complaint with the commission.

They got the offensive letter, but in order to manufacture a victim, they showed it to someone who would ordinarily have never seen it.

Like you said, it's game-over at that point. Truth is optional and "human rights" trumps everything else.

It would be Mad Max.

One way to avoid this would be strong kinship, culture, and values. That works better as an enforcement mechanism than government, which can only show up after an event and put a band-aid on it anyway.

Interzone / The hard question

Comparison is easy; creativity is hard.

We know many things don't work well.

Are there things that work better?

We may have to invent them.

Or they may already exist. But probably not in the form we need.

What would society look like, if you were in charge?

The day may come when they need defending.
Endangered species, facing extinction, and all that.

Sadly, they seem to be breeding. Children are a new trend-object. Hipsters view them as art projects.

I trust putting the best people in charge, and then breeding more of them. I don't trust the popularity contest.

I don't see the point in harassing Varg now. He's contributing useful things to society in addition to his radical screeds, which seem to have a small audience that don't do anything.

Let him be the intellectual leader he clearly wants to be, and is qualified to be... if people choose to follow, that's not his fault. He didn't force them to.

As another data point, there are a great deal of esoteric Christian paths to explore. Meister Eckhart springs immediately to mind. William Blake espoused a pseudo-Xtianity. On the modern lighter side you have "almost-not-Christian" Emerson, and a more hard line in C.S. Lewis.

And Huxley and the Perennialists, who are like a Vedic-Pagan-Christianity. This fits in with the hermetic principles of the only interesting Satanic group:

Unfortunately, their documentation is... scattered.

The women who promote it use a smart tactic of mixing real, serious problems like misoginy, sexual harassment in offices, hospitals, etc., women beating at home, rape, etc... with trivial bullshit like: Strange homophobia laws, abortion, forbidding psychologists to treat gays out of homosexuality (if they so wish), giving benefits to the blacks, emasculating men, destroying the difference between the sexes (and creating new sexes), etc...

This is pretty common in the USA too.

It's the nature of politics. You have to trot out the orphans, poor, minorities, disabled, women, etc. to show that a law is "good."

Unless it helps the pity-objects, it's not good... it's greed!

And then you'd be an evil Republican.

Using a metaphor for nature works.

A tree only becomes a tree when a seed forms a sapling that merges its own interests with those of the world.

Some might call that "unitive love." (This is not hippie love: for the snake, its passion is to kill and eat. For the soldier, it is to wage war and rape.)

I see it more as a question of individual souls coming to maturity.

It doesn't happen for everyone -- in fact, I think it happens to a minority.

And there are many pitfalls that can lead you astray, and damage or destroy your soul...

Sounds like they panicked. Maybe in another world, their deaths grant meaning. Or maybe not. Hard to tell, so we wonder.

But, what of "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"? That strikes me as something worth keeping around, as a sense of community and indeed a sort of justice arises when each has their own role, performs it, and takes only what they require.

That requires a central determination. That determination will either favor the stronger, or the weaker; there's no middle ground. Then you have yourself micro-managed in a way the kings would never tolerate.

Further, as others have pointed out, this becomes a social concern. Thus it always favors the weaker, instead of letting the stronger build up wealth they don't need right now, and do things with it that are more productive (in the future).

I trust nature's way. That is, there's a tribe, and there's a cultural mandate to help members of the tribe who are acting in good faith toward the values of the community. But no one is forced through management.

That way, by the way, means less time at work and more pay :)

Who decides what it feels like, for all?

It's set by a standard that allows us the maximum possible excuses. Done by a computer, probably some old Macintosh (AIDS) hooked up to a Cisco router in the basement.

This whole "liberal cultural marxist PC stooges are repressing freedom" whining really reminds me of the usual liberal cultural marxist PC "The Man wants us silenced and obedient". Stop being myopic and just accept the fact that you might just be a routine security check.

That's what is most terrifying about it. They don't like dissent; liberalism isn't dissent... it's not from an ideological basis, but more like a profit and loss sheet. If you run a cafe, you don't want people disturbing the peace there. You want nothing but unmitigated sales of goods and services and thus ??? $$$.
