The Elite "Have No Idea" - Society Is Near The Breaking Point

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by 'Chindit13',

What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface.  Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded. They do not look at the calendar, which, if one really looks, says "1788" on it.  Something is close.  Very close.  Society is near the breaking point.

My own experience is that Hillary’s so-called Deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are more informed, more self-reliant, and among other things, better armed.  Regarding their arms, they are incredibly responsible, and not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed.  The Deplorables have the longest fuse.  It is, however, a fuse.

Alt Left, on the other hand, are the Neo Fascists and Neo Neocons.  It is Alt Left that thinks Free Speech means THEIR speech only.  It is Alt Left that needs 'safe spaces' and wants to enforce thought crime.

It is Alt Left, and its media lapdog sites, that is heavily into censorship of ideas that diverge from their approved ideology.  It is Alt Left that champions regime change and ratcheting up the rhetoric against Russia. It is Alt Left that believes it has an inherent right, even an obligation, to lie and obfuscate if it serves their greater purpose.

Perhaps most significant is that it is Alt Left who so quickly resorts to violence and vandalism when confronted with people and ideas with which it takes exception.  Never has that been as clear as in this election cycle.

The Deplorables, however, are not possessed of infinite patience. Like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point it will be released into the circuitry of society.

The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune.  That thought no doubt results from being immersed inside a cocoon where dissonant voices are not allowed.  When the levee breaks, or the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gob smacked.

Precious few of them are anywhere near as immune as they believe themselves to be.  Additionally, what they might think, or hope, is their support, their security, their safe space, doesn't really exist.

Most of society's guardians, whether they are law enforcement or military, are card-carrying members of the Deplorables.

France was similarly constructed in the late 1780s.  The elite were isolated only in thought, not in reality.  Their protection was of a Potemkin Village nature: not actually there, but merely a facade that gave them false comfort.

They paid dearly for their arrogance and ignorance.

History may not repeat, but it does rhyme.  The calendar really does seem to say 1788, so 1789---and 1792--are not as far off as some would like to believe.

This is not a call to arms, but it is a call to reality.  Ignore it at your own peril.

Some may see these words as a threat.  They are not.  They are, however, a warning, and a warning from someone who is a student of history.

Every society eventually reaches a breaking point.  Ours is nearly there.  Some of those who might feel threatened, the so-called elite and insiders, think that they can buy protection as easily as they can buy a Gulfstream.  How naïve!  Who are the private security contractors?  Who are the various SOGs?  Like law enforcement and the rest of the military, they are the Deplorables.  The Deplorables will take your money, but you will not take their lives.  Better said, they won’t give up their lives for you or your family.  The security you believe you have purchased is an illusion.  Make that delusion.  Best to get that out front here and now.

Some who feel threatened, or nervous, might fall back on the tired adage of ‘We gave them (the Deplorables) everything; what do they think they will do without us?’  Well, the use of ‘we’ is arrogant, because those who have actually produced something of value are few and far between.  Industrialists, for lack of a better term, are those who produced for society things of lasting value.  There are few true industrialists today, and many who still remain have shipped their production overseas, jacking up the compensation of bonus-based execs, but contributing to the hollowing out of America.  The true industrialists did produce the cars, trucks, machine tools, generators, servers and even computers.  They produced lifesaving medicines and treatments.  They made steel plants and built railroads.

They produced jobs.  They even produced the guns that the Deplorables have by the hundreds of millions. The Deplorables recognize that entire contribution.

Mark Zuckerberg, however, is not Henry Ford.  Jack Dorsey is not Andrew Carnegie.  Mark Benioff is not John Rockefeller.  Lloyd Blankfein is not John Pierpont Morgan.  (Elon Musk might turn out to be someone of significance, if he is allowed to fail and is forgiven for it.  Time will tell.)  The old Robber Barons, despite their faults, did produce things of lasting value.

What did these new ‘titans of industry’ give us?  Facebook?  Snapchat?

Twitter?  They gave us banality and pabulum.  Some embraced it, despite its triteness, perhaps because all other meaning had already been lost, like America’s exported jobs.  These new titans, Neo Titans, did little more than help dumb down society.  They made America less productive, less curious, more pedestrian.  Maybe they think they gave us the internet, but credit for that goes to DARPA, which is to say the military, which is to say the Deplorables.  The Neo Titans gave America nothing, at least nothing positive.  Social networking?  Gaming?  Selfies?

The Deplorables can live without the silly oxymoron called social networking, which, as anyone who looks at it objectively knows, is anything but social.  We don’t care what two thousand of our fake friends had for breakfast, or what Andrew Ross Sorkin thinks of the latest Presidential debate.  He probably thinks we do.  After all, he has ‘Twitter Followers’, whom he assumes live and die by his every Tweet.  We can live without that.  I wonder if his ego can?  He, and those of his ilk, are merely Kim Kardashians without knowing it.  They are the talentless dishing out white bread to the emotionally and spiritually starved.

Some might think this is all Trump’s fault.  Again, that shows a degree of ignorance and naïveté which characterizes the elite.  Trump is a symptom, not a cause.  He might even be a salve, as the changes he could bring might defuse some of the current anger.

On the other hand, Hillary is a lit match in a room of dynamite.  She, like many of the self-important, thinks her very existence is a favor to the rest of us.  She epitomizes the absolute worst of what America has become.  Above the law, wealthy not through accomplishment, but through influence peddling only, and a bull in a china shop in terms of her effect on both the country and the world---and I apologize to bulls for that analogy.  The world is more unstable because of her.

America is less safe because of her.  Russia and the US---the two largest nuclear powers---are more at odds because of her.  With her in power, we will reach the breaking point at home and internationally, perhaps leading to ‘accidental’ nuclear war, as the heightened rhetoric impacts clear thinking.  Society is more stratified because of her.  Race relations have deteriorated because of her (and Obama).

There are few current ills in society and in geopolitics that cannot be laid at her feet, at least to some extent.  The Great Deceiver to many, who exhibits an astonishing aversion to truth telling, is enough to make even an agnostic wonder if the anti-Christ hasn’t finally arrived for its three and a half years of rule.

A recently hacked email of John Podesta finds him saying “she (Hillary) has begun to hate everyday Americans”.  No doubt the same feelings were voiced by Nicolas Ceaucescu.  It turned out the feeling was mutual.

Elect Hillary, and continue with business as usual, and it is likely this warning will become an epitaph for the America we know.  Society may collapse regardless, because the rot is already very great, but she will hasten the day of reckoning.

The Deplorables have already considered what is coming.  They are as prepared as they can be.  Years of decline have enabled many to build their survival skills, to make due with less, to build real communities where one man can trust another, to discover what is truly important and what can and should be salvaged from this society.

Outside of that demographic, however, people are stark naked.  They are vulnerable in ways they simply cannot imagine.  They are unprepared and unskilled for what will matter most.  They are cannon fodder living on borrowed time.

History is full of examples of this sort of collapse.  We humans have always rolled along a sine wave of progress and decline, of civility and social unrest.  We think we have outgrown the sort of mayhem with which the history books are full, but that thought stems from recency bias.  Most of history---the vast majority---is not peaceful.

Societies are not, on average, stable and safe.  Thomas Hobbes knew that quite well, as evidenced in his most famous quote.  Humanity is likely on the verge of returning to the mean, and the mean is exactly that:  mean.  In case some have forgotten their Hobbes:  solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short.

Have a nice day.

Gun license?

What gun license?

Doing a search on my PDF version of the Constitution right now. 

Not coming up with anything about a gun license.

There are 1.3 million concealed carry licenses issued in Florida alone.

I would call concealed carry in city limits an enhancement of your basic 2nd Amendment right. It's a nice touch though.

People think the French Revolution was peasants with pitchforks but it wasn't, things didn't get going until the 1% figured out they were being screwed by the .01%. We're not there yet...getting there, but not yet.

When it really got going they could service 1 new guillotine customer every 30 seconds, literally a river of blood running more than a kilometer into the Seine river.

A little known chunk of History is that King Louis was pushing the farmers to begin planting a newish tuba from the Americas, the Potato.

The French Farmers would have nothing to do with it and were all about a Wheat crop, there was almost zero adoption of the Potato.

By a series of climate changes and crop stress there was a famine, caused if I remember rightly by 4 or 5 years of hard winters and very crappy summers.

No more bread, the primary food of the masses, no cheese burgers or pizza back then, for the likes of them.

The Irish potato famine was caused by a mono culture situation where a singular type of prodigious Potato was planted all over Ireland and there was no genetic diversity in the Potato crop and the primary species was very susceptible to a certain rotting mold that inevitably arrived from the Americas .

In both cases, hundreds of thousands died, most who could possibly emigrate, did. The waves of these two minor looking (to modern us.) Agricultural misfortunes is Epic and blood soaked, millions died in Ireland. Boston has a bit of an Irish accent to this day. Waves of consequences. Montreal speaks French.

When push comes to shove, food supply is the primary trigger of many great social changes.

If Hollowed Out Americas inner city poor have their EBT/Food Stamps removed, for example, watch out.

The fact that millions of Americans absolutely rely on food stamps, escapes many people. There are millions and millions of people in the USA that do not have a Pot to Piss In. That is just way it is, that the world outside does not know about, millions of homeless,(Regardless of Government charts and statistics) there are more people sleeping outside tonight in the USA than when Kevin Costner was dancing with wolves. The EBT button is in the hands of one bank, JP Morgan, if I remember correctly.

That Button has more power than a Nuke button, that system could go down entirely in the event of X-class solar flares hitting the Earth, see the Carrington event that fried Telegraph cables, way back when.

The whole Social order is incredibly fragile, most people have no idea, not a clue.

If the EBT system goes down (and it will.) the Zombies will come out, the day after tomorrow.

The Truckers stop trucking, the fuel stops moving, the food stops moving ? Fragile hardly describes the reality we are comfortable in.

The finger is on the switch, are you ready ?

I wonder what the post-ebt starvation dieout timetable is?

Oh, they'll rob stores and nearby homes for a bit, but that will run out.

Then what?  March hungry to the rural areas like locusts?

That might not turn out well for them.

The French Takedown aka the French Revolution was funded, instigated, and managed by the Rothschilds.

A century later they did the same thing to the Russians. 

A hundred years have passed, the lies are taught as facts, and it is now our turn.

The King and Queen represented French culture for better or worse. 

It was infinately better than what the Rothschilds had in store. 

Is France more or less French today?

For the most part they have been detached from their own heritage and are on schedule for elimination thanks to the non-French murder spree.

Nevertheless, we have all been conditioned to believe that revolutions are organized by the people for a better life.

Nothing could be further from the truth. 

So the Clinton skank will be the latest NWO concubine.

She will be ruthless as Robespierre.

That is my problem with Chindit's article.  The deplorable's don't have a guiding hand like the Rothschilds, the Illuminati and the Free Masons.  Besides, in all my extended US family, none are even awake, let alone ready to rise up.  Sure, many of them have weapons, but all still believe the narrative.   That terrorists brought down the twin towers, that Assad should stop dropping barrel bombs and gassing his people.  That America truly is "great".   That Israel is a democracy and America's greatest ally.

It was a mere 3% of our population that fought for independence from England.

How did that work out?

3% of the 100 million gun owners would be the largest military on earth.

Half the people I know are ready and eager for the reset so we get things back to normal.

Killdo's picture

everyone I know here is pretending everything is OK, they don't want to hear what is really happening, have no balls, or any menaingful skills, hate their careeers and are quite unhappy and lost.

I can't imagine them fighting for anything - they are pretty much like zombies - half dead, yet somehow manic and cheerleading for kleptocrats at the same time

in other words doing their best to trun another cheek and to love their psychopathic masters/enemies - just as serfs did in 13th century...

That's OK. They will follow us when it is over, and then we will fleece them. 

They have no integrity, no courage, no spine, backbone, and no meaning to their lives. They are walking cotton plants, waiting to be picked. 

In fact, they like it. They just don't like when the plantation owner and his staff tries to pull them up by the roots. 

Fleece them gently, tell them that they are special and that you love them, give them some sports entertainment and throw their own money back at them and they will go to the ends of the Earth for you. 

But you have to also give them a common enemy, a scapegoat to explain the epic failure of their miserable lives. 

For them we shall choose two groups: The Global Elite and the Social Justice Warriors. 

Let the bloodbath begin. LOL

Radio comes on in the bathroom as I'm preparing for work in the morning.  Guys on the radio are scratching their head wondering why NFL viewership is down some crazy number like 10% just from last year. (I could be off by some deviation......it's not really the point)  And they will never get it.  

Football is part of an ICON of what American Culture is.   High School Football is still BY FAR the most popular spectator sport in America.  Nothing else comes close.  But as our culture disintegrates...so do the ICONs of our culture while those who can't visualize the change continue to embrace the remaining vestige, clinging to the fantasy of days gone by never to return.  But it's gone.  

American greatness will never return.  Sure, there are things we can do to slow the acceleration, but the momentum is still in one direction.   My Chinese associates think I'm crazy when I encourage them to make SURE their children become/stay fluent in Mandarin so when the day comes that they curse at you for bringing them to America they will still have a homeland to return to.  They don't believe me.  They still think they have reached the promise land....taking their happy pictures, posting them on wechat to show all those back in China how wonderful their lives are here in their freshly built, stapled together, disposable houses with disposable air conditioning systems and stifling property taxes with their shiny cars in the driveway that depreciate faster than Hillary's health.  Just one big facade.  Wait until the tax man comes to collect on what they're owed (about $200k per/tax payer with fed/state/local combined).  They'll change their tune.

I still miss the America I grew up loving.  It's very sad to me....there is no America in the world left to go to.  Australia? no.  New Zealand? no.  Yah, sure, buy a ranch in Argentina or a hut in Dominica.  get real.  those peddlers are dreamers to.   I'm still young enough that I hope the reset comes fast and is big enough that we can punch through it, and emerge on the other side and try to rebuild what's left when every human fly on the planet isn't trying to get here.

Here's to you guys who'll be there with me on the rebuild.

Before we can rebuild the collectivist left will have to be removed from power. I'm with you on rebuilding. Are you with me on restoring individual freedom?

It's going to take more than removing them from power - because their philosophies are a cancer.  They're going to have to be eliminated - period.  This will have to be done either physically, or, by teaching people proper principles so that people are smart enough to see how toxic those ideas are.

Or are you also entertaining physiological reconditioning also?
