Announcing a new link, The Economic Hardship Project

The Economic Hardship Project is a useful bit of research and writing being done by Barbara Ehrenreich, an anti-white leftist YKW. No one else has the money to do this sort of research and reporting.

It is worth reading because we make decisions and plans and come up with ideas based on what we know about the world. This sort of knowledge is very important, because it is in a certain sense, self knowledge. Few if any Mindweapons readers, and certainly not the Mindweapon himself, is economically secure. I don’t even think rich people are truly economically secure, because civilziation is not secure.

What happens to the poor teaches us what can and will happen to us, but it also gives us ideas for averting it.

Ehrenreich, like all Leftists, are limited to either appealing to the plutocrats, or talking about overthrowing them and seizing their wealth.

I have a more optimistic idea. When I have told it to Leftists, they said I was delusional. So be it.

My idea is that the plutocracy is not about the wealthy sitting their on top of a pile of gold; it’s about a certain design of wealth creation and distribution that goes to the plutocrats. The plutocrats need to be constantly refreshed, like vampires that always need more blood.

It is within the realm of possibility that the plutocrats can lose fresh sources of wealth, and lose their power. Leftists don’t believe in this, or don’t want to believe in this, because if it happens, the people who do it will not be leftists or sympathetic to leftists.

The autarky and local economy movement can only be done by the better sort of White people — exactly the people that Barbara Ehrenreich hates and fears. It’s Werewolves versus Vampires again. Barbara is trying to make Vampire society sustainable; Mindweapons are an Emergent Werewolf Race.

So Ehrenreich is interesting because its on-the-ground reporting on the death of Vampire society, the death of anti-civilization.

Your vampire society is going down hard, Barbara. The Werewolf is at the door.

    Bob Whitaker said this the best: the communist proposal was “the farmers will farm, the workers will work, and the communist intellectuals will manage everything.” Well, who are those communist intellectuals? So, translating from the original Yiddish, it means “they will work, they will plow, we will sit like an effendi and eat.”

    Usury, and rent-seeking (in the economic sense of the term). Instead of wealth creation, it’s wealth extraction.

    Schiff is another YKW promoting doomer porn, just from the Ayn Rand/libertarian side, instead of from the Ehrenreich/communist side. Other than predicting the 2008 crash (which everyone had been predicting for a few years) every single one of Schiff’s predictions turned out to be wrong. He predicted massive inflation, missing that the inflation happened in the Bush years, now we’re in full on deflation and the Fed can’t print money fast enough to stop it (just like in the GD). Ehrenreich and Schiff are a perfect example of how the YKWs take both sides of every economic issue.

    Our problems are not technical, and not really even economic, they are social coordination problems, especially, due to mass media (there’s a reason corporations spend billions on advertising.) MWs who can see through it are rare, and we’re competing with ad-men for the role of leading the masses. Not an easy problem, but it’s a mind weapon problem, not any other kind of problem.

    btw, Ehrenreich’s Nickle-and-Dimed book is probably worth reading, but nothing the average joe working for a living doesn’t already know from hard experience. The audience was the NPR crowd wanting to feel sympathy for their baristas. I call it the “What’s the Matter with Kansas” talking point – why are those Kansas rednecks always voting Republican – against their own “economic interests” – instead of voting for us NPR Democrats, who will give them free health care and a higher mininum wage, if they just give up their racism/Christianity/culture/guns? The reality being the NPR liberals didn’t deliver anything good economically to the White working classes but black and brown competition on the low end, Chinese and Indian competition on the high end, and globalized cheap labor competition for everyone.

    Put me in a debate with any one of these psuedo-pro-working class lefty YKWs and I’d wipe the floor with them.

      As always, excellent summation of the problem. I especially like this:

      “Instead of wealth creation, it’s wealth extraction.”

      Spot on. That’s the modern economy in a nutshell, with a certain Semitic tribe sitting at the apex.

    • Yes, Hipster is as always brilliant…except for his Normalcy Bias. I hope he at least invests in a good pair of running shoes.

    I understand that part of Golden Dawn’s organizing in Greece, is delivery of food gratis to poor folks. Of course, again, “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him once. Teach him to fish and you have enabled him to feed himself.”

    Deliver us from the censorship against whites talking about what is good for whites and then we are talking real progress. MWs gone exponential

    I read some of her books in the past and found them interesting. In retrospect, I think her books are probably a mindweapon against us.

    • mindweapon says:

      Ehrenreich is certainly hostile to us. However, her writing is useful in that it is solid research and journalism on what is actually happening. I know lots of poor people, but I don’t ask them how they live, and most of them don’t want to tell me. My auto mechanic friend tells me, but that’s because we do work projects together such as the potato patch, the little garden at his residence, and I gave him a bread machine for his wife to make bread with.

      Americans who are still middle class, or who are debt-fueling their delusions of still being middle class, still think they are “too cool” to do car sharing, to work in a garden, to do homesteading or sharing projects. they keep hitting the snooze button, again and again. eventually Reality is going to dump them out of their bed of delusion.

      • Rita Rabbit says:

        Hitting the snooze button…perfect.

        Indeed, it often comes down to pure laziness. A friend of mine works for a guy who has a business set up with the proven ability to make scads of money. (I’m guess he inherited it) He’s so busy pursuing his and his son’s rockstar hobby though (they play in rock bands) that he lets his business languish and this week couldn’t afford to pay my friend her measly 10 dollars an hour for the last two weeks she worked for him. I’m disgusted. We are in for a rude awakening and many of ours truly deserve it.

  5. barb says:

    “We are in for a rude awakening and many of ours truly deserve it.”

    Yeah, but those folks may end up being our side’s greatest warriors, when they do wake up.

    It’s like alcoholism, you don’t stop til you hit rock bottom, and then you Get Religion. And oh, boy, oh, boy, do you get it.

    The most zealous evangelizers and Defenders of the Faith are the newly converted, former worst sinners.

  6. Skeeter says:

    I wasn’t sure, but I figured Babs was a Hebress. Still, I highly recommend “Bright-sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America,” which pokes holes in all the New Age foolishness (e.g. the Law of Attraction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_attraction) that has permeated corporate America and pop culture in recent decades. She concludes with a chapter about the case for “defensive pessimism” that made a lot of sense to me. Optimism can be a good thing, but there’s a point at which it crosses over into flat-out stupidity.

  7. oscar the grinch says:

    “Of course, again, “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him once. Teach him to fish and you have enabled him to feed himself.”

    Actually, this wisdom is situational and relativistic. In reality, “Teach a brown to fish, and within about 15 minutes he’s tripled the brown population and overfished all the brown fishing waters, and now he’s come with his 30 million shit-colored cousins to overfish YOUR fishing hole, too.”

    They’re like f#ckin Tribbles. The stupidest, worst thing whites ever did was share their learning with the mudfilth. It will be the end of us.
