Privilege & Responsibility

What ethical responsibility do we have to consider problems that are not our own?

I love this story so much I’ve told it a thousand times 😀 but I was sitting at a bar in a restaurant in midtown Manhattan, NYC, USA, with my excellent homegirl, sipping drinks that cost a gazillion dollars, and explaining to her something about how I was trying to understand how it feels to be an assembly line worker whose only skill as far as earning potential was putting a door on a car.

Obviously I wasn’t trying at that very second! 😀 but I meant that mentally, philosophically, emotionally, I was attempting to access the same set of feelings I might have had in a circumstance like that.

I originally started thinking about this mainly from seeing the documentary Roger & Me:

Where Did Your Values Come From?

If you eat squirrels, I think you’re a primitive savage.

I hold the door for people. I hold the door for old people. I hold the door for young people.

… No, I’m not a doorman… 😀

I thank people for holding the door for me. I like to reward their generosity by offering them obvious appreciation.

For the sake of discussion, let’s call these “values”.

Where did I get these values? o_O Continue reading “Where Did Your Values Come From?”

You Live In A Basement, B. [Loser Society]

Life is a Meritocracy. Get some Merit.

I’m really really really tired of losers talking about other people being losers. 😀

I don’t want to hear about your mediocre IQ when you live in a ******* basement and have no earning potential. Continue reading “You Live In A Basement, B. [Loser Society]”

Complaining Versus Acting [Loser Society]

For certain people, complaining is better than acting because they can still pretend they could have won if they had acted.

Over the past 3 weeks, I needed background chatter while I was doing some IRL work, so I ended up listening to a lot of people give a lot of opinions about the same topic.

Some people were smart. Some were dumb. Some were educated (which is different from smart). Some were uneducated. Some had jobs. Some didn’t. Some had women. Some didn’t.

After a while of this, I realized that as I considered all the information these disparate people had presented me, all I personally had was a bunch of complaints and no feasible action plan.

I found this odd, and then started specifically searching for content where someone, ANYONE had offered a viable plan to cure their desperation.

Nobody has one. Not one.

They’re all these far-fetched, fantasy-laden ideas that if if if if and IF this and that, THEN we can win.

This has to do more to drive these people deeper into their depression than to offer them a life preserver out of it. Continue reading “Complaining Versus Acting [Loser Society]”

Laboring Under The Illusion Of A Binary Society [Loser Society]

Unfortunately, this fraudulent concept has now been unveiled by Globalism, and people are currently losing their minds.

I was watching a documentary the other day that had been filmed in Germany or Poland or somewhere and the native dude tells the cameraman (according to the subtitles I was reading) “Look at those black guys over there.”

They were at a fish market or something and the next camera angle showed fish on display to be sold and a few Chinese dudes. (Maybe the documentary was in Russia and those were Mongols. Dunno.)

As a documentary editor, I was waiting for the camera to pan from the Chinese dudes to show the black dudes.

It never happened and then it went back to the native dude who was speaking so I was like “what an error.”

Next, I backed the video up to see if I had read the subtitle incorrectly. I hadn’t.

Letting the video play, I realized that the Chinese dudes that had been used as the b-roll cutaway ***WERE*** the so-called black dudes that the native dude was talking about.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The immediate lesson being that if you don’t have any actual black people where you live, ***SOMEBODY*** has to be black.
