Twitter cuts (#60)

Assuming that the Mandate of Heaven is always the real principle of regime legitimation, this looks like an interesting status quo problem. If the present world order is working, it’s doing a conspicuously poor job of advertising the fact — especially to Western populations.

    What would you guess that it looked like in the US in the roaring twenties?

    It would seem like more western media exposure = more pessimism

    Translation: people measure the world in paychecks and are oblivious to history, philosophy and quality except maybe 1% who are mathematically excluded from all statistical measurements.

    A sample for the world of the late Qing Dynasty would have made an interesting comparison.

    NO people dont do that some very few do, if you ask someone in say Idaho what they do they do not understand you want to know their profession because they do not define themselves that way so they will start telling you about their lives family hunting almost anything but how they earn a paycheck and when you say no no whats your job they will launch into a litany of seasonal occupations small business ventures and such. always stipulating they dont work elk season. which is the first thing they tell a prospective employer who always assures them that they always close up shop for elk season. Perhaps they are the 1% but most p[laces were once like this and have been steadily forced into matrix serfdom and resent it.

    The Chinese are starting to complain a lot too. Their clinging to the progress myth is what the Japanese call 空元気, empty displays of being upbeat in order to not have other see that you’re doubting the official message.

    this does not look so convincing to me. regarding China and Indonesia, it is societies in public debates manifesting with “Yes” culture. these people will always answer ‘Yes’ on intentionally confusing question like that. later evening time at home they will tell story how one forigner idiot asked him a stupid question. if I know that, it would easy to predictably fabricate some ‘honest research’ results.

    I’m surprised Sweden is more upbeat than it’s neighbours. Objectively, they would seem to be worse off in the long run, except in the category of mosque building starts. Maybe it’s just that 10% of the population is now non-native?
