Sustainable Ingroup Formation

Positivity always wins because it’s based on creation and not reaction. The positive creator can make negative comments, but the negative commenter can’t create positive change.

Binary Society

Groups have to be formed based on positive concepts or else they’re doomed to fail.

This is because there are two types of people.. Content Creators and Readers. Continue reading “Sustainable Ingroup Formation”

Restructuring My Career

Once I worked for a video editing house, my plan was to become a freelance video editor… Or maybe it wasn’t. o_O

Everyone who has been reading along knows I’ve seen every episode of The Profit.

I like the style Marcus Lemonis uses to involve himself with companies.

In an early episode, he told the wine people something to the effect of he isn’t a consultant and that he doesn’t help companies he has no ownership in.

That may even have been in the first season. I immediately thought about what it is that I do and what makes it different from what he does.

As a freelance video editor, I *am* a consultant or a mercenary or however you’d like to consider it.

People have a need they can’t fulfill via the staff they currently have, so they contact a freelancer to do the work and then disappear.

This is great for everyone involved, because the freelancer doesn’t have to go to work at somebody’s office every day, and the client doesn’t have to pay for days when the freelancer isn’t working. Continue reading “Restructuring My Career”

Politics Without Personality

Your time will be better spent making yourself the person you claim to be instead of claiming to be the person you will never be.

As you’re aware, I was studying losers last year -> BillCammack.com/tag/loser-society/.

That’s over now, but I wanted to discuss a situation where I feel that people are damaging themselves under the guise of affirming their beliefs. Continue reading “Politics Without Personality”

“King’s War” Commentary

A highly-fictionalized account of the fall of the Qin dynasty and the founding of the Han dynasty.

ok.. I just watched this insanely-long television series called “King’s War” or “Legend of Chu and Han”.

netflix.com/title/80160391

I’m sure it’s **EXTREMELY** fictionalized, 😀 but it explains the fall of the Qin dynasty and the founding of the Han dynasty.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chu–Han_Contention

The budget for this thing had to be a gazillion dollars because there are 80 episodes that are 45 minutes each, which makes sense for a television show because that’s an hour minus commercials.

Basically, the point they were making is that people can’t get along. 😀 Continue reading ““King’s War” Commentary”

Mediocracy / The Overarching Psychological Failure Of Separatism

If you remove losers from your society, guess what, *YOU* become the new losers.

According to Wikipedia, this is the definition of Separatism: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separatism

A common definition of separatism is that it is the advocacy of a state of cultural, ethnic, tribal, religious, racial, governmental or gender separation from the larger group. While it often refers to full political secession,[1] separatist groups may seek nothing more than greater autonomy.[2] While some critics[who?] may equate separatism with religious segregation, racist segregation, or sexist segregation, most separatists[who?] argue that separation by choice is not the same as government-enforced segregation and may serve useful purposes. There is some academic debate about this definition, and in particular how it relates to secessionism, as has been discussed online.[3]

Separatist groups practice a form of identity politics, “political activity and theorizing founded in the shared experiences of injustice of members of certain social groups”. Such groups believe attempts at integration with dominant groups compromise their identity and ability to pursue greater self-determination.[4] However, economic and political factors usually are critical in creating strong separatist movements as opposed to less ambitious identity movements.[5]

In short, separatists of any brand, white, black, lesbianic, whatever, are seeking an environment where only they exist, like Williamsburg.

Here’s the problem…

If you live in a society when you would rather live in a different society, you are a loser. Continue reading “Mediocracy / The Overarching Psychological Failure Of Separatism”

Bullying

My experience with bullying is that it merely points out to me who needs to get got.

A friend of mine asked a question on social media about bullying yesterday.

The day before, I had had a conversation with a different friend where I was trying to understand a concept I don’t believe in that he wholeheartedly believes in.

Because of the previous conversation, I approached the bullying question with “Do I understand what bullying is?” Continue reading “Bullying”

Smacking Vultures [Loser Society]

If there’s no cooler, there’s no community. The only thing that can constrain evil is a greater evil.

I’ve been binge-watching this series that’s basically a remake of “Lord of the Flies“, where one of their themes is how order is created out of chaos.

Someone evil rises up and a lot of the kids start following him because they want to be a a part of the power structure.

The evil kid is kept in check by a collaboration between a smart kid and a cool kid who uses his power for good.. Not meaning superpower, meaning that he assesses what he feels is the right thing to do and then makes strides to make that happen.

When they make these stories, they practically invariably make the good guy a 100% good guy.

This isn’t actually possible because the only thing that can check and constrain evil is a higher level of evil. Continue reading “Smacking Vultures [Loser Society]”

War. Class. Honor. Respect. [Re: The 2016 Al Smith Dinner]

Whenever you hear of Barbarians, they aren’t inside the castle…. They’re at the gates.

I just watched Trump bomb at The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner.

By “bomb”, I mean Trump got booed for quite a while, several times during his speech.

Because of his performance tonight, I’m now positive that Trump will *never* be the President of the United States of America.

Time will tell whether I’m correct or not. I think he’s going to get completely wiped out by Hillary in an embarrassing fashion on November 8th.

Here’s why my belief increased from being 80% sure to being 99% sure: Continue reading “War. Class. Honor. Respect. [Re: The 2016 Al Smith Dinner]”

Institutionalized Personalities

Let’s discuss self-oppressing personalities…

The best way to defeat people is to convince them that they’re worthless.

This is because once they believe this about themselves, they continually exhibit lowlife behavior because they see themselves AS lowlives instead of regular human beings.

Then they turn around and complain that people are treating them LIKE lowlives and descend even further into self-defeating behavior.

Nobody is better at oppressing you than you are.

If you take someone out of the game without breaking their spirit, they can always get back in the game.

There’s a difference between LOSING and BEING A LOSER.

Winners lose all the time, unless they’re playing a game that’s too easy for them or against people that aren’t any competition for them whatsoever.

Losers lose and then reinforce their own belief that they were SUPPOSED to lose because they ARE losers.

If you can get people who should be winners to self-define as losers, your job is done and they’ll wipe themselves out. Continue reading “Institutionalized Personalities”

The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]

Unless you have a ring that turns you invisible, leave dragons alone.

Delusional Peasants

The Game of Thrones season 06 finale was well-written.

The writers spoke to something that I’ve wanted to say for a long time, but didn’t have a concrete way to put it until I saw it play out in this episode.

This episode had instance after instance after instance after instance of people thinking they had power that they never had and finding out that they didn’t have that power.

This is where a lot of people trip themselves up IRL (In Real Life). They believe in the power they don’t have.

Part of this is because of the Loser Society that we’re currently experiencing.

Everybody wants to act like people are equals, when we are not.

Everybody wants to act like winners don’t get or even DESERVE more than losers.

So you have people who attempt to claim the spoils of the winners even though they’re actually losers.

When they see other losers such as themselves get away with this, they figure they can do it too and try their luck walking the tightrope between high-rise buildings.

Halfway across….. A gust of wind pushes them off the rope and they realize that they actually needed *SKILL* to do what they were trying to do without killing themselves.

Skill they don’t have.

Meanwhile, a lot of people are serfs who are allowed free reign over “their” land until their actions run afoul of what THE KING wanted them to do, and then they get wiped out, replaced, and more serfs work that land as if the first set was never there.

That easily-replaced set of serfs perceives themselves as kings because they think that they’re self-governing.

They’re approximately as autonomous as the fish in your fishbowl.

Sure.. All the fish have to do is swim around, eat fish food, play tag with each other, look at the humans on the other side of the glass… But the human is providing their entire world. The human paid for the tank. The human pays for the electricity that runs to the tank. The human buys the food. The human puts the food in the tank.

That same human, if properly provoked, will scoop you out of that bowl and flush you down the toilet. Continue reading “The Power You Don’t Have [Game of Thrones s06 e10 Finale]”
