Quote note (#330)

Fighting-talk from Jim:

The rise in education costs is runaway rule by priests. Most education is useless, and gets more useless at the higher levels. If you ask why we are giving more stupid people more useless education even though it costs much more than it used to, then you also have the answer to why it costs more. If you have priests in charge, they will make everyone go to church all the time. Our education system is the state church making everyone go to church and attend religious festivals. It is time for the Dissolution of the Monasteries. We need degree deflation. […] Our education system is state church making everyone go to church and attend religious festivals. In other words, degree inflation To deal with this, needs a full on attack on priestly power. We need a revolutionary transfer of power analogous to the dissolution of the monasteries.

ADDED: The SSC post, which at least partially set Jim’s trigger, provides critical context —

So, to summarize: in the past fifty years, education costs have doubled, college costs have dectupled, health insurance costs have dectupled, subway costs have at least dectupled, and housing costs have increased by about fifty percent. US health care costs about four times as much as equivalent health care in other First World countries; US subways cost about eight times as much as equivalent subways in other First World countries. …

    Let’s not deflate words,

    that’s Cathedralite.

    Actually, how words are confusing to all but the highest verbal IQs is probably one of the reasons for Land thinking humans are too stupid to live.

    I certainly know that experience. I’d probably be writing exclusively in an hiero-math-language synthesised with the best of ancient languages if it wasn’t for most people and how few there are of those akin to me.

    But I get what you’re saying, ‘revolution’ sounds leftie.

    This is why the Church standardised dogmatic language, because like people’s verbal IQs were much lower than in antiquity. You could say in just 3 Latin words what it takes two sentences to say in modern English.

    We could say then » We need a transfer of power analogous to the dissolution of the monasteries. » He just wanted to add some jazz to it, probably.

    Yes. « Restoration: Greater than Renaissance or Reformation, because it includes them »

    Cassiodorus rebuilt Rome. He did it through education, because “the subtle rules the dense”. The Left understands this, which is why Marcuse wanted a “long march (like Sherman to the sea) through the institutions”. Along with clever men of resentment like Fanon, this was accomplished, and the Left took control of the “media” of the age, a mass media designed almost deliberately to facilitate a move to the “lowest common denominator” for the new men of the technical age. The logical obscenities which followed the Left subversion of entertainment, communications, and education will be lived through, personally, by all those privileged to be alive at this moment.

    How could Christians have forgotten?

    We, of all people, should know that “if the Truth sets you free”, a “lie will imprison your mind, and later, your spirit”.

    Now we must recapture lost ground, for the Truth is murdered, imprisoned, and violated every day, on a constant and regular basis. We must recapture the citadel.

    Some would have you believe that merely going to Christian worldview training is sufficient for the task.

    I am sad to inform you that this is an impossibility.

    Because antique Europe, the antique Europe that worshiped and exalted Christ, and whose love of beauty & truth & goodness gave a luster even to the very vices and sins of their time, is dead forever. At least physically.

    But because the Spirit rules matter, this death is reversible.

    It is possible, provided the reader makes an interior effort to purge his spirit of the dross of the Modern Times he lives in, and whose atmosphere has come to color and taint and subvert his judgement without even consciousness of this fact.

    Capitalism, the Free Market, small government, property rights, and the Constitution are not enough.

    Man has to be reborn.

    “Do you want to know your superiority over nature? See how much you extend or strengthen the faculties of the animals as you wish. You perfect, if you want, all substances; you are a king, you are an angel of light, or at least you should be. Do you know why the more elevated are the objects of your studies, the easier it is for you to make discoveries in them? It is because, like your spirit, they are closest to the truth. Hesitate no more. The sciences of the spirit are much more certain than those of matter. That is why all the sacred authors say the same thing; whereas the scientists of the lower order are all fighting amongst each other. Look even around yourself and at the simplest laws of the physical world. The astronomers predict the eclipses and revolutions of the heavens several centuries in advance; and they could hardly predict whether the weather tomorrow will be clear or cloudy. Man, be filled with trust in your nature and in the one who gave you thought. Let that faith not be a vague and sterile belief in vain doctrines. It is necessary for it to be active and swift like a torrent; but it is necessary that that torrent be inflamed, so that it can illuminate itself in your heart. The reason man carries his head in the skies is because he does not find here anywhere to rest his head. And why would he look here to rest his head? Doesn’t he cling to unity? And can unity find its rest in the order of mixed things? Soul of man, know the repose that is made for you. It is that which is characteristic of unity itself: it is to feel that you are separated from that which is disorder and corruption; it is to feel that you swim in freedom in the imperishable ocean of the light of order and life.”
    The passages are taken from L’homme de désir (The Man of Desire) by Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin.

    [translated by Cologero Salvo]

    The Left was right about “regeneration” — they just looked for it in the wrong place, and went to hell, which is locked on the inside.

    If you are willing to undertake this, you will rebuild Western Civilization, and will join men like Boethius and Cassiodorus on the last day. It will not be easy, because it demands a personal effort and change, first of all, and because it goes against everything that even “conservatives” embrace, since they are revolutionaries without even knowing it. This is the opposite of a Revolution. This is a Restoration. And it will begin when we embrace the “whole counsel of God”.

    This blog will sketch the outline of that plan in Christian education.

    Personally, I’m fine with whatever stable society as long as it doesn’t have feminism as a ruling trend. I.e. as long as it has patriarchy.

    I don’t need modern artistic & pop culture, I’d be fine with just being a border guard in a pseudo-socialist state like the Soviet Union before it went bad, and after the worst time — (Land can’t really attack that, because China had its horrible periods and is having its excellence-modern period now because it as the Authoritarian Nationalism leftover from its communistic Administration and hasn’t succumbed to liberalism.) — as long as one could raise a family away from negro-feminist culture, and read philosophy & STEM stuff.

The only other way is mock war politics. Which is really just leveraging peoples greater fear of war against a show of hands whos willing to fight.

    Jim nails it, pretty much. If you read John Taylor Gatto, or just look at tests from different eras, you will realize how dumbed down education has become, and that said dumbing down was deliberate. The lack of intelligence of the average teacher is well established by their extremely low scores on the GRE, far lower than any other major. But once teaching became a unionized public works project, with the inmates forced to attend at gunpoint, there was no limit to the idiocy.

    How is the intelligence of the teachers relevant?

    Serious question. Why should I believe that having Newton for a teacher will stop the ghetto kids from fighting in class or make the whiz kid whiz any faster?

    [Reply]

    Orthodox Reply:

    It’s relevant in that ~50% of the workforce has higher IQs and teachers unions create artificial scarcity via credentialism. It’s gotten so bad that now we could swap the workforces of McDonald’s and the local school and probably see a rise in quality at schools, but a decline in quality at McDonald’s.

    As for smart teachers, right now dumb teachers run their lesson plans on a weekly schedule. A lot of whiz kids are throttled. They don’t need smart teachers, but they need teachers smart enough to know a student should be pushed and given more difficult work beyond the regular lesson plan.

    I was a teacher. Its just an observation that a teacher, and his skill, can contribute to the learning of the students. Certainly his intelligence can be a factor in such as well. I mean, we all know that some teachers communicate much better than others. Think of how many of your college professors that you remember – you probably can only recall a few that you thought actually were any good.

    I can only think of two or three.

    But of course, the students are not merely pliable clay who can be brought to any manner of understanding. And yes, I do think that much effort is wasted on students who lack the capability to advance, but that’s part of the issues of modernity that our kind host has identified.

    The shitlib multi-faceted, multi-front anti-Trump strategy is taking shape, and it’s a pretty strong one:

    MSM: Scream at top of lungs that Trump is a Hitler racist facist for every move he makes. Also call him mentally ill/insane (echoes of what was done w/ Goldwater).

    Government: Endless amount of leaks from unelected civil service so Trump can’t get anything done. MSM blows each leak out of proportion, calls Trump Hitler racist facist.

    Courts: Challenge every nationalist/anti-GC court order using shitlib judges on the west coast, which will be affirmed by the 9th circuit.

    Protests: MSM attention on Soros-paid protests in GC cities, vastly overestimating the size and impact of the crowds.

    Congress: Obstruct Trump maximally on everything, regardless of the issue. Push for impeachment.

    Censorship: Use Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc to censor conservatives more and more.

    Attack Trump family/allies: You see their attacks on Ivanka brand now and also on Barron, also on Bannon and now on Flynn. Expect these attacks to expand. Echoes of how Pablo Escobar was taken down (if you can’t get at Pablo, destroy his allies and friends).

    This strategy appears to be working, at least so far. Trump has been very quiet and hasn’t done anything over the past week (except get Sessions and DeVos confirmed).

    The mechanism for making it more expensive is student loans.

    This one is, for once, not Cathedral conspiracy. Scholars want everyone to be scholars like them: to go to school. Hence loans for anyone who can’t afford it. However, this effectively increases the demand for schooling…except supply is state-mandated, so supply cannot increase. Okay class, what happens when demand exceeds supply…?

    Further, because the loans are pegged to how expensive the tuition is, there’s a positive feedback loop. Colleges are essentially seeing infinite dollars chasing their degrees. Tuition did not increase quickly; it is instead surprising that it’s not orders of magnitude more expensive already.

    (Student loans aren’t forgivable because they’re actually special levies on students on behalf of universities. Special taxes in their favour is one way to know universities are in charge.)

    IQ tests probably aren’t banned because they’re racist. They’re probably banned because they compete with universities as signals of employability. The proximate cause of communist education isn’t because priests are in charge. The ultimate cause isn’t that either: it’s because someone can coerce. The State can pressure everyone to go, and shut down all competition, so there’s no reason to have good quality or low prices, indeed there’s reason to have the reverse. If scholars hadn’t seized the State, then the coercion would have been applied to some other market, that’s all.

    The priestly metaphors are illuminating in some contexts but not in this one. As Alexander notes in the OP, the problems with American tuition costs are 1) administrative bloat, 2) runaway student-life spending, 3) lawsuit-avoidance spending, and 4) runaway sports spending.

    Jim, unlike Alexander, should have simply noted that each of these problems involves diversity related initiatives (specifically Title IX related initiatives). A typical research university (even smaller regional ones) will employ dozens of people in diversity-type jobs, from Title IX specialists to student mental health counselors to the girls’ teams that have to be funded like the boys’ teams. This represents millions of dollars in annual liabilities that didn’t exist in earlier generations.

    In terms of general sport spending, however, those costs have gone up 50% in the last decade alone, and you can’t just blame that on the girl teams. With a few rare exceptions, most college sports programs are not self-funding. Plenty of football and baseball teams are driving up tuition costs as badly as, if not worse than, the Title IX and AA offices. These programs are housed by the sorts of right-leaning jocks that aren’t “priests” in any meaningful sense of the metaphor.

    And thus, He planted a novel depravation within the acre of God,
    Marked by the shape of the female, who serves as its gateway:
    Heresy of the maleficae, so I speak.

    would however in the current state of theory development transmit the following cognosations : Jews and Christians cross-fertilised each other. Originally Christians were “Jews,” « Jewish Christians, also Hebrew Christians or Judeo-Christians, were the original members of the Jewish movement that later became Christianity. The split of early Christianity and Judaism took place during the first centuries of the Common Era ». Jews qua Judaism (aside from alchemists-mystics-occultists) however kept conservative until Protestants (Puritans, etc) fertililsed Cathedralisation/Modernisation in them : e.g. « Reform Judaism, also known as Liberal or Progressive Judaism. Originally formed in Germany as a reaction to modernity ». Cathedralised/Modernised Jews, along with Protestants or, perhaps rather post-Protestants, experimented further, thus aitiologising Communisim.

    All are etiologiesed by feminist trends in the Catholic Church, such as the sentimentalisation cogenetic with the cult of Courtly Love in the 12th century, which itself is derived from the Semitic strain known as Islam : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courtly_love#Andalusian_and_Islamic_influence

    This goes further back, to matriarchal cults of Isis and beyond, Astarte, the Semitic motha-goddesses ; the intra-Catholic feminist cults are the blooming, the reaching through the walls, of those ancient fertile goddesses, which in their bloom have now in their hordelike “r”-selection come to infest the previous body of now rotting Christendom

    (Gibson said:) There are no maps for these territories.

    (Eiríksson said:) There are maps for these territories, you liberal. Just check out lectures by J.B. Peterson where he does his best to explain them, those eternal maps passed down millennia still valid to day as they are biostructural.

    Marx is a classic example of self-hating Jew. A Jew who tries to outgoy the goyim in self-hatred. However, I don’t think it’s purely Jewish phenomenon. I think every group/tribe/nation has some outcasts/traitors that are so vigorous in their assimilation that they would sell their own mothers if their new masters would tell them to.

  • G. Eiríksson Says:

    » We have read a few chapters of ‘The Jewish Strategy’, and the bold hypotheses it contains may indeed be called “refreshing”. Our attention was drawn to one particular chapter, called ‘Conspiracy or instinct ?’, since, as you may remember, this question arises in the third part of ‘Three Aspects of The Jewish Problem’’ – whose second edition will be published as soon as the preface and the postface, in which it is discussed, is proofread. Both author reach the conclusion that the thesis of a plot of worldwide domination should be discarded, without, it should be stressed, presenting many arguments in support of their own thesis, that of the ‘blind instinct’.

    In any case, these two theses should not be seen as mutually exclusive, in so far as three aspects, or elements, can be distinguished in the Jewish substance : “firstly, the more or less modernised or bourgeoisified Jew of a faceless middle-class; in the second place, there is the Jew as cultural agent, the Jew as writer, artist, ideologist, sociologist, scientist and so forth; in the third place, there is the Jew as creature of the Jewish law, and as conscious instrument of the Jewish law.” (…) Indeed, nothing prevents one from thinking that what is purely instinctive in the first and second strata may be conscious in the third stratum. This is glimpsed by the American author, when he points out that “the great mass of Jews seem to be, almost without exception, under the tight control and discipline of their fairly numerous leaders [if this sounds incredible, just observe the Soviet Union, a body under tight control and discipline], who could, in turn, be equally subject to the orders of a supreme and secret directorate, which plans and directs a conscious strategy as set forth in the famous “Protocols.” [Who couldn’t, as a Cathedral, easily declare some document fake? Jews have been involved in mafias, forgeries, assassinations, extortions, threats, for a long time — how could they not hire experts, bribe judges, control media to declare the Protocols false? Obviously they could and would.] These considerations should have been explored. And so should have been the accurate observation that ”It is a pernicious and perhaps fatal error, characteristic of our race, to assume that other races have approximately the same nature as ours”, and, for the sake of consistency, the necessary conclusions on the issue at hand drawn from this observation.

    Concerning the Protocols, and, more particularly, Protocol n°14, and its rabid attack on Christianity, it is usually produced as evidence that the aims of those behind this propaganda work are intrinsically opposed to the teachings of this religion, and to its followers, and, by implication, that, being the enemy of our enemy, this religion, at least as Catholicism, would be our friend, and, so to speak, some sort of bulwark against a threat that would be external. This evidence — accredited by the fact that the so-called ‘dechristianisation’ and the concomitant ‘Judaisation of the Church’ started just a few decades after the publication of A. Weishaupt’s apparently anti-religious (and not specifically anti-Christian) agenda, a great admirer of Jesus, who, like his followers, approvingly claimed that Jesus’ real aim had been “to introduce general freedom and equality among men without any violent revolution” (Anrede, 170-2) — proves, however, to be wrong, when looked at more closely. In fact, a de-Christianisation did occur, but only one of facade : Church lands were confiscated, statues, and other iconography were removed from places of worship, crosses, bells and other external signs of worship destroyed, religious festivals, private as well as public worship prohibited, priests deported or murdered, on the initiative of those who were behind the so-called French Revolution, with their radical brand of Christianity: hyper-Judaism: it can be said that the Church has not been Judaised, but re-Judaised, given the Jewish character of early Christianity. Mirabeau let the cat out of the bag, when, in his final hours, he had the lucidity to make the following statement: “Vous n’arriverez à rien si vous ne déchristianisez la Révolution.” (“You won’t get things done if you do not de-Christianise the Revolution”; “If you do no dechristianise the Revolution”, and not “if you do not dechristianise France”: there is a subtle difference). Thus, the so-called French revolution can be considered, as paradoxical as it might seem, as a Christian revolution, as an umpteenth Christian revolution, in a sense that, like Solon’s reform in the Antiquity, it was conducted in the name of the Goddess cult of which Christianity is a (respectable) manifestation. Thus, Boissel, a forerunner of ‘feminism’, shouted, at the tribune of the Jacobins: “The rights of citizens consist in the enjoyment and the usufruct of the goods of the earth, our common mother.” In more concrete terms, the revolutionary spirit incubated in the high clergy, as showed by the French writer Chamfort (see, at archive.org, ‘Chamfort, étude sur sa vie, son caractère et ses écrits’, a study which, despite its literary character, reveals the inner workings of the late Ancient Régime as few others do).

    Meanwile, “the ignorant barbarians of our race” who had accepted Christianity, outwardly dechristianised as they were, still remained inwardly Christian ; God was dead, but ”the pure Christian morality of love, submission, humility, and mystical humanism” (‘Men among the Ruins’), and, in general, all the lower psychic and psychological elements that make up what may be called the Christian forma mentis, far from disintegrating, galvanised into an even more corrosive precipitate, on contact, a few decades later, with positivism, a renewed form of the cult of (the goddess) Reason, renamed “science”. The cult of (the goddess) Reason, as we have seen, was originally imported to ancient Greece by Semitic thinkers.

    To be sure, positivism undermined the Christian belief. Time had come for it to be ruined. It had carried out its task: the Christianisation to the core in psychic and psychological terms of what was left of the White man. There was no use for it anymore. Its very foundations — the Goddess cult — became more apparent, that is, to those who are not fooled by the theological hodgepodge of this essentially subversive movement. Besides, had the Christian doctrine and Christian morals not been erased from most Whites’ minds, atheists would have, if not fully realised, at least sensed that the ‘post-modern’ world is — the belief in the equality of men and women, the tyranny of self-righteousness, self-victimisation, the exaltation of everything which is shapeless, weak, inferior, the abolition of property (except theirs : the Church’s), etc. — fully Christian, and that, in following the democratic credo, they are actually Christians — in spirit., while those who fight against the modern world in the name of ‘Christian values’ show similar symptoms.

    But most of these cost increases and employment increases in education and health are just a kind of banal homeostasis – as the system redistributes employment from the old, now globally exported industries to the service sector. I mean IQ 90-120 folks need something to do and somewhere to be in the daytime and some reason not to be pushed into revolt. They might as well be helping old folks navigate hospital corridors or directing students to minority scholarships, or whatever entropic or mildly negentropic activities they are assigned. Jim hyper politicizes something that is internal to the logic of a globalized economy and therefore over estimates the likelihood of any of it changing other than through collapse from gradual accumulating inefficiencies (and I wouldn’t count on that as whatever inefficiencies accumulate in say, US higher education will for a while at least be counter balanced by extreme efficiencies in third world sweat shops, etc).

    The market should route around education by focusing on more hands on private degrees, like the old Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (renamed a while ago). I clearly remember managers talking in terms like we need to hire two more MCSE’s or telling a customer we will send an MCSE to visit you. It was assumed that the MCSE has some kind of IT or electric engineering college degree for having a theoretical base as well but never talked about, just assumed.

    Why is this not happening? To a certain extent it is, but I think the root lesson is that almost only technical skills matter today. When we hire people for the marketing department we want one PhotoShop guy, one MailChimp guy etc.

    Daniel Chieh Reply:

    The MCSE is actually a really good example of how certificates become more “paper”, though. It was originally significantly harder but that prevented as many people for acquiring it. Microsoft then edited it so that it could become an easier program, thus increasing their profits and benefitting from the prior reputation of MCSEs.

    @Admin I am sorry for bringing your family into this, please apologize to your wife for me (or not).

I’d rather a rightist get me than a leftist, the latter would be dishonorable, but I guess there’s no difference between the two to you.

    If you eradicate me and/or michael from the comments who are the schoolchildren of the future going to mock and spit on as the archetypes of populist resentment?

    This is pathological. It’s an absurdist essentialism on Hitler’s part. Jews were able to live alone before they were conquered and made into slaves.

    When the Europeans realize that, they’ll all become simultaneously aware of the solidarity that binds them together.

    This is thinking similar to the para-Marxist belief that once the revolutionaries free the proletariat from the influence of the bourgeoisie and nobility, the proletariat will become “become aware” of the “solidarity that binds them together.”

    » Research by Rodney Hilton in the 1970s showed that the English Peasant Revolt of 1381 (or Great Rising) was led not by peasants, but by those who would be the most affected by increased taxation: the merchants who were neither wealthy, but not poor either. Indeed, these revolts were often accompanied by landless knights, excommunicated clerics and other members of society who might find gain or have reason to rebel. Although these were popular revolts, they were often organized and led by people who would not have considered themselves peasants. »
