Sentences (#44)

Succinct insight from Lind:

Within the Beltway, the failure of national policies is not important.

The whole (short) article is highly recommended, and not only because it converges on the cybernetics of the NRx Cathedral concept almost perfectly:

… the only thing that really matters is remaining a member of the establishment. This completes the loop in what is a classic closed system, where the outside world does not matter and is not allowed to intrude. Col. John Boyd, America’s greatest military theorist, said that all closed systems collapse. The Washington establishment cannot adjust, it cannot adapt, it cannot learn. It cannot escape serial failure.

The very success of the establishment at perfecting machine politics — i.e. desensitization to performance-based feedback — guarantees concentrated idiocracy and collapse.

    It’s not left-wing and democratic enough to be Alt-Right.

    Hence the virtue signaling all the time.

    It’s always fascinated me how the ostensible rulers of the world have insulated themselves so completely they don’t actually make contact with the world at any point in their daily lives.

    Same dynamic expressed in the “Security” conversation — security is only ever about protecting sovereign powers from the consequences of their actions; keeping the human herd safe is seldom a consideration.

    Especially since if anything really bad happens to them…who else will they turn to for protection?

    Reckon that’s why really savvy leaders skip the waiting period & cut-out middlemen, and inflict terror upon their subjects directly like the Gladio shell games that cemented NATO’s reign.

    Yes. I wonder how many of them even do a google search about policy stuff, to at least see what might be plausible. No matter what the question, the answer is always whatever will uphold the narrative.

    This alienation is true to a lesser degree farther out in the cathedral. Elites have no lived experience of minorities of low IQs, patriarchies that work actual religious people etc. They cant change a tire but are sure anyone who can repair a diesel engine or builds skyscrapers must be pretty dumb.But its even worse many dont even superficially think they look around note that all the successful people say this and that and so they simply parrot it.examining premises seems madness a sign of subversive and malevolent creatures.

    This fits nicely with admin’s post on Cathedralism a few days ago. If the establishment’s modus operandi is continual “managemenf of perceptions,” as admin wrote, then of course the establishment system has to be closed. It’s the only way to maintain and ensure total quality control of the perception management machine. They don’t want the outer darkness creeping in via some un-watched channel.

    Related, but from a slightly different angle: establishment parties as possible “host bodies” for the Outside (though, of course, I don’t think either Trump or Sanders are spectres from the outer darkness, it’s nevertheless an interesting strategy to think about).

    I definitely agree with this. Imagine a castle in a basin, obstinately refusing to maintain the water level outside the basin, and continuing to do so as the basin slowly begins to fill with water. The castle is safe within its own walls until the water, which represents chaos, reaches a certain height and floods over the ramparts. Nevertheless, the internal dynamics of the castle can be correctly described as a ‘system’ and not a lack thereof, hence why I wrote in my recent Social Matter article that we should draw a demarcation between chaos itself and a system which fosters chaos (called a ‘closed system’ here).

    such kind of assumption, can rise a quistions related to optimisation of NRx’s critique. suppose NRx succeded in indocrinating key figures of Cathedral and replaced it’s content. the problem then will be in implementation delay. delays are important, to bring new car on market takes 4-5 years and to bring new technology may take 20-40 years. what is a point in critique of establishment which is already undergoing succesful self-demolishing and will be gone one way or another in 60-70 years (if true). while it will be impossible to change human culture even in 200. I can be wrong, just a optimisation vector to consider.

    also bitcoins blockchain is a too feed forward process only.

  • TheDividualist Says:

    The issue is that the Cathedral is very good at masquerading at anti-establishment and outside-establishment. They can always push some kind of Chomsky type radical-sounding far-left stuff if the current narrative fails. They can just blame it all on corporate capture of the government. And, after all, that is even actually true that it is a PART of the problem, the article has examples of corporations financing politicians. And what is easier than to take a part of the problem and blame all of it on it? Thus, they can in a pinch just double down on anti-capitalism and corporation-hatery. I mean, OWS looked anti-establishment, while it was establishment in the sense that it was students demanding stuff largely in accordance with ideas professors taught them.
