Maxims, rules of thumb and other observations on human cognition and sociocultural affectations

This will be added to on an irregular basis...
  • What is said to humans directly is received with skepticism and considered with dubiousness while that which is heard in passing, especially that which most conforms to their mentality or prejudices, is readily believed.
  • Humans have a certain cognitive latency between exposure to new information or experiences and the ability to think dispassionately and intellectually about it.
  • Humans have a certain cognitive spectrum starting with the moment of exposure to new information or experiences and ending with some point at which the thing is effectively "in the past" for them.
  • This cognitive spectrum is linked to the emotional process often referred to as shock, anger, denial and acceptance.
  • The more and faster information or experiences are presented to people and the closer the quarters and the lesser the distance between people, the more their early reactions in the passionate emotional stage are reflected back to them in the manner of responses to those reactions from others in light of those responses.
  • The more outrages which are suffered without sufficient time to allow emotional bleed-off, the farther the bar for subsequent reaction and outrage are pushed, and the more further events must progress before reaction and outrage.
  • It is possible for serious detriments to eventually sit below this threshold for long enough for their damaging effects to build and multiply until their entire society undergoes some reactive convulsion.

Did Suitepotato vote for Obama?

Yes, damn fucking right I did.

Gasp.

Why?

Because this nation needs its face shoved into its own shit, and rapped on the nose with the rolled up newspaper of the consequences of its actions, and told in no uncertain terms NO by its own awakening conscience.

Granted that’s a lot to expect from a people who think reality television is reality or television, but it nevertheless necessary.

First off, the racialist atmosphere of this nation was finally decaying, but still thanks to the idiot left still perniciously and tenaciously clinging around the edges, poisoning the subconscious of America’s black youths with the worst sort of mental contagion: victimhood. It’s always some white peoples’ fault. Taking total and complete responsibility for yourself at any given moment in all the ways that matter is the greatest individualism, the greatest personal freedom, and the greatest pleasure, and this all great men know. It is an unpardonable offense that American liberalism has sold defeatism to African-Americans with the help of stooges like Jesse Jackson. Whenever blacks have tried to say “yes we can” white liberals were there to insist “no you can’t” right up until their chosen scion Obama. WHY NO ONE BUT OBAMA? Who decides that? Turns out, white liberals do and black people have been letting them do it for years.

Obama was not like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or any of the other talking heads the liberal white establishment put out on a rhinestone leash before. He’s light skinned. He smiles more than anyone not in television should. He’s a snappy dresser. He has practically NO history. It’s like he popped out of the fabric of reality custom made.

He was given the most affirmative action anyone could. He was allowed to run not against his competitor but the outgoing and not up for re-election president’s image as concocted by the antagonistic and openly hostile press. That Holocaust denial bishop could have been put forth by the Democrats and gotten elected against George Bush’s media made image. As these allegedly irreligious louts would have it, GWB was Satanbilly. Yuck, yuck, yer damned.

Granted, that’s basically how the media always operates, but don’t you think the press criticism of Obama’s elements was more muted than it ever has been before in any presidential campaign for a Democrat? Compared to Obama, Clinton was bent over and ass raped.

The only thing it could be would be the liberal knee-jerk tendency to softball everything for black people in their continuing condescension, that blacks cannot take a pounding politically like whites, and have to be helped, belying their claims to believing in equality. Obviously they don’t.

Obama was the perfect thing to illustrate liberalism’s racial failings. The condescension, the pandering, the race baiting, the hate mongering, the encouragement of despair and hopelessness, their dogged refusal to back black parents and families and instead back every one of the worst role models they possibly could and then cut every excuse under the sun for them, when they’d never, I guarantee you never ever allow their prissy little white world to be done over the same way. You don’t see them championing bad white role models, do you?

Other than the more subjective ones like reality television contestants and Jerry Springer guests, I mean.

If this socialistic egomaniac could hit the White House, roundly figured to be the single most powerful position in the USA, and have every advantage from a fawning press ready to bow down and blow him at every juncture no matter what, and a celebrity world and entertainment media that acted like they were in heat for the man, and his entire party ready to commit seppuku for him on a whim, he could be the ultimate proof of liberalism not working. There you go, the most suave debonair and intellectually gifted black man to sit in Washington has been handed all the power on a silver platter and championed liberalism to the hilt with all the fervor of a community activist… and failed at it.

He will fail. Not because he’s black although that is very important to black people that he fail and be black. Not because he’s supported by a sycophantic media and political world although it is very important to every normal sane person to see that world take it up the backside, but because he’s wrong. His politics are wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

If the new messiah can’t make liberalism work after it’s been tried by two southern crackers, then what is the fucking problem? Maybe we were wrong in this country that if only a disadvantaged class member got the power, they could make it work where white people who just couldn’t understand the nuances of underprivileged life failed. Maybe liberalism is wrong.

Now then, why is his failure important to black people? Because I will tell you what I would tell my own son, what I have told my wife, what my father told me, with all the love that I have in my heart. Failure and acceptance of that, is as important as success. You cannot fix what you do not know is wrong and what you refuse to accept even could be wrong. Black people in the USA have been sold a bill of fucking goods that everything that goes wrong for them from cradle to grave is some white person’s fault. It’s white people causing everything to go wrong.

Well, if nothing is black peoples’ fault, then they have NO POWER TO FIX IT. Is the problem with your car in your car or is some strange radiation making it not work? It’s your spark plugs? Replace them. End of story. Power in your hands, you fix it, you’re on your way. Power in someone else’s hands, you wait for someone else to fix it, and you let me know when Elvis returns from the grave.

That is why failure is as important as success. It is a bloody nose that lets you know your limitations, that lets you know something is not working right, that lets you know to make a change. If you don’t think you failed, and that someone else failed you, you can sit there and spin waiting for someone else to make a change. Or you can say you failed somewhere, and you can change whatever you figure that was.

I have made many mistakes in my life, but they were mine, and I never hurt so bad as when I could not see where I was wrong, and thus waited for a fix from outside that was never coming.

I’m not saying there’s no such thing as racism, but look around you. Does this look like Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream? Does constant, obsessive racial consciousness sound like the color blind society he was working towards? Don’t look at what he was working for, look at who took power in his absence and what they did. Do the sell-outs handing crumbs to the masses while they dine on table scraps at the feet of white liberals look like MLK? DO THEY?

Failure on this level is badly needed to help break once and for all the liberal white racialist machine. Break its connection to black Americans. Break its workings. Break the illusion and show the reality to people. The truth that poor rip-off for the Matrix really wants hidden: the ultimate power is when you decide you are in control, not someone else and definitely not nebulous ill-defined someone elses.

Fail once in a while I was once told. Black Americans being humans fail all the time, but white liberals have been selling a paint job to cover it called white racism. A fun house mirror distortion hiding the real white racism that has been in the majority for fifty years, that of liberals. As I said, it was slowly going away but hanging on like crud. This fall by Obama, and he will definitely fall unless he changes course, will be the final nail in the coffin of the white liberal racialist system.

I hate to reference it, but remember the movie Willow where the old wizard played by Billy Barty asks Willow which finger the magic is in and he fails to answer correctly but later when asked says he was going to answer his own finger? Why do you think that is? Because the magic is in your finger. Your magic is in you. That’s why failure, and accepting it, is a tremendously important part of human advancement.
