    It doesn’t seem outrageous to me that the price of a consumer electronics item like a flat-screen television goes down every year relative to the price of, say, nursery care – in fact, it would be odd if that were not the case. Also, I’m surprised they’re using the cost of cellphone service – which is wildly overpriced in the US compared to in the EU (where it’s more regulated) – as an example of the nimbleness of the free market.

    {AK}: No, everything is wildly overpriced in the EU, or the UK at least, compared to the USA. Your government (USA) subsidises everything. You are effectively a socialist state, which is what makes the American All-Trite, and Right, in general, so laughable. Neoreaction, is just another peasant revolt.

    Mobile in Iceland has been practically free for years. You have to pay ca 5$ like every couple of months.

    It’s because of a market disruptor called «Nova».

    Internet (xDSL or fiber optic) is ca 40$ per month for 50MBit connection w/ unlimited download, that’s because of another market disruptor (Hringdu).

    Back in the 90’s when I was a kid only the state could provide telecommunication or at least phone and (snail) mail services. They opened up the market in I guess the late 90s to early naughties.

    The privatisation of the state telecommunications corp (Síminn) was bungled imo, the buyers inherited such an infrastructure that they still abuse it. Yet disruptors came and went, and have now (the most successful one), as I said above, really pulled (pierced) through and put the whole thing on another level.

    The rise in university education makes no sense in light of improved telecommunications. It also doesn’t make sense if you look at the number of professors and their salaries.

    Healthcare makes some sense, you need more bodies as demographics (age) change. The people competent enough to do the jobs is falling thanks to feminism, since women have many more options outside of nursing.

    Local education is similar to university education. There’s some effect from rising health benefits, but if you dig into local school budgets (outside of places hit by illegal aliens and mass immigration) you will usually see costs and number of employees rising, but number of teachers fairly constant. Education costs should be falling in non-urban areas, but it is rising along with places inundated with illegals.

    Vehicle maintenance and food and beverage are consistent with inability to outsource labor. And government mostly ignores those sectors.

    Nothing an application of economic subjectivism can’t fix:

    “It is an idea sponsored especially by Dr. Thorstein Veblen and copied by others, that there is some distinction between “pecuniary” and “industrial” employments and that society ought to take the control of industry out of the hands of “financiers” and put it into the hands of “technicians.” This notion rests on the same obvious fallacy, the idea that society has a choice between producing more goods and producing more value, and that it is the part of wisdom to prefer the former. It is difficult to take either part of the proposition seriously. The quantity of goods, if there is more than one kind, must so obviously be measured in value units. The proposal of leaving it to technicians in the respective fields to say how much social productive power shall be expended in each is merely grotesque; military experts would use it all for the army and navy, the medical men could usefully employ it all, and more, for health, and so on. There is no more important function of a first course in economics than to make the student see that the whole problem of social management is a value problem; that mechanical or technical efficiency is a meaningless combination of words.”

    {AK}: SVErshov, is that a ‘hidden hand of the market’ mysticism, or just a more general mysticism? Zen marketing, lol!
    (Anticipated objection, concerning any claimed disjunction between government and market): without falling into crass economic reductiveness, it really does seem, especially in the prevalent capitalist systems, that economic distribution is a strong, central logic of invariable appeal. I don’t think that can be denied by Neoreaction.
    Not that I would necessarily engage in such a privileging, but I’m not going to ignore the fact that others do. In addition, one has to consider how all flows of information and resources, almost without exception, have been commodified as the inhabitants of various economic (oikos) circulations, under the rubric of capital.

    it is much more simple, if thier best consciouse efforts delivers so poor results, they can be better in unconscious mode.

    if seriously then it is ‘eleminate the problem’ mind set. problem is abstract analitical assumption, you never can get what you like, by working on eleminating what you dont like. (probaility not on your side) in most cases result is just opppsite, as shown on those diagram. more examplese, we have too much of alcoholism – eliminate alcohol, resulted in more alcohol plus organised crime. and so on, drugs, terror ect.

    {AK}: The first problem is the ideological stand-off between opposed political tendencies preventing full and coherent implementation of ‘conscious’ policies. Too much ideological blocking, of even neutral policy decisions, eventuates in half-baked chaos. Given this factor of politically compromised implementation, it would be a misattribution to correlate failure of implementation with ‘conscious policy’.
    The possibility of characterising this political practice of mutual sabotage as ‘conscious’; or ‘unconscious’; or somewhere between the two; is a better beginning to any analysis of what is at stake.
    In one sense, this political practice already constitutes a ‘patchworked fragmentation’; the singular indexical, ‘a’, being the possibility of nominal unification enabling the characterisation of ‘patchworked fragmentation’.
    Whether this ‘patchworked fragmentation’ is located in a central institution of national, yet territorialised, policies; or geographically instituted as ‘patchworked states’; similar problems of coordination necessarily arise.
    Abandoning these problems from the sphere of conscious considerations; in favour of the self-emergent efficiencies of market-magic hope; and simply on the basis of a limited but proven productivity; doesn’t really address the scope of problems that are actually faced. Those problems are not going to go away. Simply taking refuge in the nostalgic modalities of profit and production, and excluding larger issues often created by those modalities, is not taking responsibility for cumulatively global actions. Which ‘patchworked state’, or what coordination of such, is going to address these global impacts?
    At the end of the day, there are jobs to be done. It doesn’t really matter what political systems people choose to coordinate themselves, as far as getting those jobs done. It really doesn’t look like the current systems, and any of those proposed by Neoreaction, how that any traction at all, as far as addressing these necessary tasks.

    SVErshov Reply:

    nothing conscious can be implemented politically. framing world view as a set of problems got you no where. it is like changing TV channel , if you have TV with 100 channels, each time you click on remote probability to get channel you want is the same 0.01. each time you solve some problem, probability to get what you want did not change.

    best way to get some systematically organised world view would be to study theory of chaos and statistical method used in physics to analize it. very fascinating discoveries can be made on the way.

    Virtually all of the red items are imports. And these imports are responsible for the loss of real income among working class Americans over the last 30 to 40 years. Free trade moves all wages towards the global mean, which is about $10,000 per year, the level generally found in the old Warsaw Pact countries.

    american health care needs to be rebooted as two separate systems on free universal care to all all citizens at a bare bones level similar to say costa rica. it needs no bookkeeping regarding billing and can not be sued, employees are volunteers working off student loans and civil servants goes without saying civil servants may not unionize. There is no incentive to defraude this system drs are salaried facilities are state owned.They are exempt from all regulation that generates costly record keeping, all they do is treat the sick. its mostly done through the internet and ocal clinics and urgent care it has its own hospitals.

    The other system is completely private and completely unregulated

    Most people still cannot accept the theory behind Neoreaction: all things are self-interested, including government, which acts as a multi-national corporation which aims to achieve monopoly.

    They must believe in the fantasy of the benevolent Big Brother who nurtures them from cradle to grave, because otherwise they are struck with terror in the world of uncertainty that prole-rule has rendered.

    They will never blame the people really at fault, who are the voters.

    collen ryan Reply:

    Brett if “most people cannot accept…” maybe this isnt true. because youre saying most people either think they are the only self interested person or are in denial they and everyone they know are self interested. I mean youre claiming all these contradictions. the state is an avaricious self interested monopoly yet its nurturing from cradle to grave. Proles are self interested yet are ruling a state that is nurturing.And it all supposes interests are only economic.

    Im certainly in favor as free a capitalist system as possible but its fairly obvious people have interests that sometimes outweigh economics, that people sometimes can not figure out what choice is in their interest, that capitalists regularly sell ropes marked capitalist noose.

    even giving socialism a fair hearing, theres a few things going on. Many who vote for it actually think they have fully paid for the services. And many others are willing to overpay a bit for insurance managed by others. In short your self interested people want social safety nets.I for instance buy health insurance it costs 26k a year its great insurance but of course its padded with niggers riding free, however when i hear these suggestions of health saving accounts i think stupid stupid GOP wonks dont understand the appeal of insurance.

    If self interested people want insurance sell them insurance, insurance for medical care retirement , unemployment whatever give the consumer what they want.cradle to grave assurance is not the problem, the problem is the dishonesty about how many free riders and how much they cost. and that is not caused by proles thats caused by elites

    proles want insurance elites want more votes than there are people who can afford insurance. elites lie about the math. separate the welfare from the insurance and the proles will start acting in the more clearly defined self interest you want to see.

    but of course this would expose a racial difference and a dilemma, white proles as i pointed out have interests that are not economic and would like to be able to pay a lttle extra to cover the white deserving poor, but elites will blur the differences between the white deserving poor and the undeserving poor mostly not white and it starts to get ugly and people cant stand to look. need to get rid of the niggers.

    Ryan you have a point about elites. You’ll hate to hear this but I think Moldbug was shooting for something similar. The 21st century has inherited the anti-nazi, crypto-pro-commie mythos; MM’s point was nah they’re both idiotic, nazis and commies. You and I are more on the nazi side than most so I’m playing devil’s advocate saying this but, the nazis weren’t perfect. More perfect than the commies, but not perfect. What we need is something new, a new synthesis. Jack Land’s pozzed blog will go down in history as a defection to communism out of sheer intellectual weakness, that conviction I will take to the grave. But do you really want to be the mere antithesis of this communist, Mike, or whatever your real name is? There’s admin, there’s trolls, then there’s Light. Idk what that light is but it’s there and I synæsthesically sense it, I smell it, it’s coming.

    “proles want insurance elites want more votes than there are people who can afford insurance.”

    This is a rumor and a myth of the Right. It has some truth to it but I don’t buy it. Do you have evidence to bolster it? Or is it just a convenient meme to circulate in order to perpetuate your cause?

    As far as Nazis being imperfect I delegate to the venerable Philip K. Dick:

    ‘He thought, It is something [Nazis] do, something they are. It is -their unconsciousness. Their lack of knowledge about others. Their not being aware of what they do to others, the destruction they have caused and are causing. No, he thought. That isn’t it, I don’t know; I sense it, intuit it. But — they are purposely cruel … is that it? No. God, he thought. I can’t find it, make it clear. Do they ignore parts of reality? Yes. But it is more. It is their plans. Yes, their plans. The conquering of the planets. Something frenzied and demented, as was their conquering of Africa, and before that, Europe and Asia.

    Their view; it is cosmic. Not of a man here, a child there, but air abstraction: race, land. Volk. Land. Blut. Ehre. Not of honorable men but of Ehre itself, honor; the abstract is real, the actual is invisible to them. Die Güte, but not good, this good man. It is their sense of space and time. They see through the here, the now, into the vast black deep beyond, the unchanging. And that is fatal to life. Because eventually there will be no life; there was once only the dust particles in space, the hot hydrogen gases, nothing more, and it will come again. This is an interval, ein Augenblick. The cosmic process is hurrying on, crushing life back into the granite and methane; the wheel turns for all life. It is all temporary. And they — these madmen — respond to the granite, the dust, the longing of the inanimate; they want to aid Natur.

    And, he thought, I know why. They want to be the agents, not the victims, of history. They identify with God’s power and believe they are godlike. That is their basic madness. They are overcome by some archetype; their egos have expanded psychotically so that they cannot tell where they begin and the godhead leaves off. It is not hubris, not pride; it is inflation of the ego to its ultimate — confusion between him who worships and that which is worshiped. Man has not eaten God; God has eaten man.

    What they do not comprehend is man’s helplessness. I am weak, small, of no consequence to the universe. It does not notice me; I live on unseen. But why is that bad? Isn’t it better that way? Whom the gods notice they destroy. Be small … and you will escape the jealousy of the great.”

    I feel forced by blogs like this to play devils advocate I have been a natural reactionary race/ gender realist capitalist science buff since my teens.Im probably 95% in agreement with nrx.But from an engineering standpoint the 5% is very important.

    I actually enjoy MM, he agrees with me that elites gaming the system is the problem [some elites will co opt proles (minorities really) to game the system, other use other means.MM tries to design a system elites cant game.I think MM has overlooked things but he is so fetishized people cant hear it and respond with GOP 2.0 talking points as if Im a socialist, or sometime sjw talking points as if Im a redneck. I am not questioning GNON I am reminding how insidious the wrath of gnon can be to hubrists.

    I start from this point, its probably not even possible to design a sustainable civilization because our DNA did not evolve for that, or at least is several thousand years lagging and old traits dont drop off but can be repurposed, but repurposed in many different ways.and of course nothing stays the same in complex systems,Lorenz. from this I favor the tried and true, the most homogenous, and self adjusting.

    Most of my life I have been a let them eat cake Randian capitalist,ironically its probably nrx and the past decades denouement) that has made me question it a little bit. We have seen capitalists do not always act in their own [let alone the nations that nurture and protects capitalism’s] long term interest.social science has confirmed consumers do not alway act in their own interest, because they do not understand how to discern it, they have sub optimal time frames, they preferance non economic interests etc.

    We have also the problem of property rights which MM himself raises and on which reaction has spent a lot of time, I think its clear nothing changes in a complex civilization, the greatest force still ultimately owns the property, but to avoid wasted resources determining this, alliances, contracts, politics etc become proxies for the fluidity of ownership by force.

    This is one of the reasons I seem sympathetic to proles, its hardly SJW sympathy,more ceasarian realpolitic. Games can be played high low against middle, large middle, high middle against low etc to cut various segments out of their due. Not because of divine right or some morality, but because ability to apply force I simply think these games are unsustainable and a waste, it is cheaper to give everyone their due.

    To be clear at this point we have many who are worth less than zero these should be expelled, NAMS, It seems nrx is just as squeemish about this as the GOP, I get it but there simply is no other way so figure out how to do it without triggering yourself. My guess is have a blue red civil war which will signal most NAMS to self deport guessing what might come next. Dont make it explicitly a race war to keep the fighting to a minimim,Much of the warfare can be non traditional warfare, but it must be made clear its for control of the state and the loser will have no say.

    I think without multculturalism we could easily bring the left tail of whites into positive productivity over time I think it is the responsibility of rulers to continue to raise the productivity of the entire population by whatever means are required yes eugenics. A large underclass while i could care less morally is an open invitation to elites wishing to resort to leftism to gain power, or simply the underclass exercising their violent ability to extract their ration of salt. No I do not believe proles spontaneously rise up and demand more than their fair value, i think all such uprising were because they were actually not being paid fairly for their value or some elite manipulated the situation. I think proles are pragmatic and understand their low worth and will even allow themselves to be cheated to quite a large extent before deciding risking life is better. I think well managed and cultivated proles can be a pleasant asset to a nation, a cultural repository, a genetic ballast and myriad other values, I think they make good pastry,fight well, ground me, and are pretty funny and wise in their own way

    As I have written I think a nations infrastructure from real estate, military, courts, communication, transportation, labor markets, education, natural resources, and consumer markets are assets held by the citizens in common to be negotiated for use by corporations. They are owned in common because they were actually bult and passed down over generations of citizens and ultimately because right of might.I do not think a colony of elon musk clones could actually sustain itself, I do not think if elon musk did not move to the united states we would know who he was. He certainly did what he has done and deserves his paper millions but I hate to say this obama is correct in a certain way he didn’t build that entirely by himself. I dont think a single utterance from a politician ever made me angrier, but to be honest the anger is not because its wholly untrue but because of how he meant it and the implications and premises that we all understood to be untrue.

    If this seems hard to swallow, imagine one of MM patches was owned by halliburton and what they might charge any of the corporations that operate in the north american Halliburton patch, say elon musks corporation wanted to partner with hallinburton, do you think Halliburton would throw in for free the electric grid the court the mit labor pool ? Of course the idaho farm boy on the aircraft carrier guarding the shipping lanes has fewer shares than elon musk but shares he has. As I have pointed out proles produce more than half of the new cog elites every year, that has value. A well run nation of whites should have no problem paying its citizens fairly or cultivating their citizens to remain productive.Frankly I think we could make white a super race in a few generations without the white mans burden.

    Getting back to HBD and real politic and cherry picking. Its odd nrx can imagine something as esoteric as virtue signalling, but doesn’t notice the recurring democracy in white races and only white races nor notice the correlation of those periods with the golden ages. Im about where Churchill was on democracy, Not a huge fan but dont see an alternative. it may be ingrained in white DNA Ill spare you the theory. In any case as I keep saying demotism is not demonstrably the problem . Elites gaming, gaming they do no matter the system is the problem. They arbitrage their power. I dont see any form of authoritarianism solving this, kings had ministers and violent barrons, in china today local administrators are way more corrupt than in the USAs nigger civil service. Democracy is meritocratic,like evolution and capitalism a self adjusting market fix the parts that are not working, aristocracies are dysgenic.follow the money

    Probably 90% of our objection to democracy is socialism. Socialism only exists in fiat economies, Because fiat economies allow lies to be told and feedback loops to be circumvented. The farthest leftwing swpl is never going to vote for the latest left wing idea if he actually has to give up something he actually needs. people are generous with other money not their own. Limit the state to a budget of last year tax receipts and things get real. Obviously non net taxpayers should not be able to vote in any given year. government should not be allowed debt. if you cant spend other peoples or generations money leftism dies on the vine.

    Like democracy I think whites may have a bit of a socialist gene, altruism virtue? I think we have a low tolerance for suffering. If true, denying this is pointless better to find a work around.
    First work around get rid of the negative producers, out of sight out of mind off the public books-NAMs.And continuously improve the genetic health of the nation.

    But theres the suffering of the unlucky, maybe its altruism maybe its fear, but we seem to like insurance plans. I have all sorts of insurance plans I like them, my insurance companies like me being a customer. I get I must be paying more than my actual risk or they couldn’t stay in business, their competitors keep me from paying too much. I dont want a health saving account, what if i have a 2 million dollar illness before I have saved that, I want black swan insurance and Ill pay for it gladly.

    Insurance needn’t be socialism at all, but if we have socialist genetics insurance is insurance against leftist tendencies.This is why I harp on it. we need to leftist proof ourselves and our state.

    Can government provide an insurance plan that is not a redistribution scheme at a better price through larger pools, syncretic bookkeeping and and no profit? and if so why not the private sector? I would say yes to both. But I think like a real insurance co should they also offer discounts and overcharges. Why not the private system? I would say if the risk to the individual could cause the public to wish for socialist intervention then the insurance should be mandatory and as streamlined as possible for maximum anti leftist protection. It seems very clear to me euroman will simply not stand for people dying untreated in the streets, the elderly and orphans left on mountainsides, the insane roaming around, any more than they will put up with fires left to burn, trash uncollected,or roadways left to chance. Somewhere there is a level of care below which we are unwilling to countenance, somewhere there’s an actuarial of that cost. Some things we may have as only private insurance some a mixture of both for instance I have several private unemployment insurance plans in addition to the required state plan even though have a lot of savings I like knowing if I was unemployed nothing changes in fact I can still save money on schedule when unemployed. Now I hated the dea of obama care as much as I hated his saying “you didnt build that” I like the idea of total absolute freedom, even freedom to not insure-EXIT appeals to euroman. but As I keep saying until we get our space exploration orders of magnitude farther along there is no EXIT. When some millenial decides to forgo insurance and by a motorcycle instead someone’s going to pay for his care.We dont allow him to drive the motorbike without insurance to pay for him crashing into me.Yeah the implication is we are all fucking rats on treadmill and I really hate that, I went into the mountains and built a sustainable homestead i hated it so much, but I found exit in this day and age is illusory. NRX is all about authority and is sort of against freedom so they ought to not fight this so hard but they do. And I fight their ideas of kings from the same emotional place. Personal liberty is a much trickier problem than economics because euroman has leveraged freedom and imagination with cognition unlike any other race, and euroman is competing with other races more intelligent but less inventive in an atmosphere were first mover advantage is extremely difficult to maintain. But that another problem
