The Left Needs Rage to Keep the Progressive Con Job Going

About that Google memo that is this week’s Rage Fetish for the Progressive Left. The left is claiming that it is “anti-diversity” and that it makes claims that women are unsuitable for jobs in the tech industry because they are too emotional and inferior to men. The actual memo says none of those things. What it actually says is that inclusiveness and diversity should be extended to thoughts and ideas instead of being limited to race, gender, symbolism and feelings.

I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes. When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem.

Why is the left lying about this fairly anodyne memo? They are lying because they need to stoke outrage. Why do they need to stoke outrage? Because constant rage is absolutely necessary for the progressive left to achieve its goals.

Socialism — properly understood — is a scheme by which wealth is acquired through political power rather than economic success. Fidel Castro, Robert Mugabe, and Hugo Chavez are typical of socialist ‘heroes of the people’ who impoverished their people but died (or on Mugabe’s case, will die) with billions of dollars in foreign bank accounts. Bill and Hillary Clinton … with a net worth of well over $100 million… have done well on their modest salaries as ‘public servants.’

Misdirection is essential to keep the marks at the bottom from noticing that the politicians spouting the rhetoric of equality are getting very, very wealthy while their own economic circumstances are stagnant or declining. The oligarchs have to keep them in a perpetual state of outrage about ‘racism,’ or ‘sexism’ or ‘homophobia’ or ‘Islamophobia’ or whatever. They even came up with a term, ‘intersectionalities’ to make it possible for *everything* to be racist, sexist… et cetera. And because it’s a seven syllable word, the marks feel like they’re reall smart when they say it and don’t realize they’re being conned.

And the fact of the matter is there really isn’t a lot of racism or sexism or homophobia left in society. So, the left has to make stuff up. It has to make up that a Google employee wrote an ‘anti-diversity screed’ that attacked women as having no business in the tech industry, or that Michael Brown was an innocent young school boy shot to death by a racist cop as he pleaded for mercy. (“Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”) They know that their base is too lazy to look up the facts and too cowardly to dissent even if they have doubts about the Narrative.

The left’s social, economic, and political ideas cannot stand up to scrutiny (which is why diversity of ideas is so threatening to them). Therefore, it is essential to keep its people in a state of rage, lest they calm down and start thinking about leftism objectively.

  1. Peacocks.

    One minute they are spreading their feathers and attracting attention to the ridiculous load of ornaments they are dragging around …. and the next minute you hear them screaming like the whole place is under attack from kamikazes.

    They preen, they strut, they make a display of themselves, they scream and they are forever looking to see if you are admiring them.

  2. pitting people against each other is what liberals do
    the rich against the poor
    the whites against the blacks
    the young against the old
    the men against the women
    it’s the divide and conquer strategy

  3. Excellent post.

    You put in your own words the same logical conclusion as Bastiat came to almost 2 centuries ago: the left’s mentors only use (to enrich themselves) the same old scam that has been the plight of mankind’s real progress for thousands of years — plunder fueled by enforced antagonism and warfare.

    Their real innovation since circa 1789, though, is to do it with lip service to “compassion”, “fraternity”, “tolerance”, “social progress”, you name it.

    All this comes from people who can only thrive by and for the lie (eventually, to themselves, included — insanity)

  4. Today’s ongoing rage (resistance) puts to mind the name of a James Dean movie – “Rebel Without a Cause.” If the pawns in this Soros-fueled game ever woke up and thought a bit, they’d realize they really have no cause.

  5. Another thing Progressives have in common with radical Islamist.

    “The perpetually angry Muslim Man” and “The perpetually angry Progressive”

  6. It’s almost exhausting trying to keep up with all of it. I just get more anxious and upset about the left every time I read or hear something. Is their lack of ideology that equals the socio-communist utopia becoming so entrenched in our society that we are losing?

  7. #6 Yes. It helps that the huge global corporate operators are pushing it forward, despite knowing it’s BS. But that BS is what will keep them huge and global and operating.

    Entertaining is the Left’s intense focus on the mechanics of legalism regarding Google’s right to hire & fire based on its free will as a private concern. Private business decision-making is suddenly now the rationale of the Left. And perhaps it is completely correct that Google can on & offload anyone they like for whatever reason, as a private entity.

    Too bad this guy and others will have to be sacrificed for his opinions. The bigger picture is that the bourgeois bohemians are finally warmed up to Corporate America and Globalism. It will get more interesting as time goes on. They want to take over the entire operation world-wide. We just might go back to living in huts if that happens… y’know, exactly where we’d be if progress had been up to them to begin with.

  8. @6 I think that despite the exponential acceleration potential in knowledge and sharing of our time (thank real hard sciences and applications in technology), we as humans are still bound to the contingencies of our imperfect, not all evil, not all good, human nature:

    it took man centuries to progress a little bit past the Greeks and Romans, and trust spirituality vs superstition a little bit more — on to the Middle Ages;

    it took man centuries to progress past the Middle Ages and trust the individual a little bit more — on to the Renaissance;

    it took man centuries to progress past the Renaissance and trust the abstract ideas a little bit more — on to our Modern Age;

    maybe it will just take man centuries to progress past our Modern Age and trust humility a little bit more — on to an age without as much pride and arrogance against the limits of our human nature that we have come to pretend is irrelevant — thank socialism, communism, post modernism.

    My .02 philosophical cents.
