    Default INEQUALITY AND OTHER VIRTUE SIGNALLING WORDS

    Inequality = how the underachievers justify the reason they achieved less. Just another way to shift blame...away from themselves and to those who worked harder than they did.

    White Privilege = the privilege afforded to the sucessful in society, not exclusively to whites, to work harder than others, build wealth, and then have it stolen at gunpoint by the government to placate the underachievers crying about inequality.

    What other phrases shall we dissect today?

    "White Privilege" is a myth in today's society. First of all it is a term invented by a female university Sociology professor to promote her own agenda, Second, it no longer exists, and hasn't since at least the middle 1970s if the words of the "Washington Post" journalist is anything to go by. Quoting Christine Emba from 1/16/2016:
    Taking it for granted that when you’re shopping alone, you probably won’t be followed or harassed.

    Knowing that if you ask to speak to “the person in charge,” you’ll almost certainly be facing someone of your own race.

    Being able to think about different social, political or professional options without asking whether someone of your race would be accepted or allowed to do what you want to do.

    Assuming that if you buy a house in a nice neighborhood, your neighbors will be pleasant or neutral toward you.

    Feeling welcomed and “normal” in the usual walks of public life, institutional and social.

    What is white privilege? It’s the level of societal advantage that comes with being seen as the norm in America, automatically conferred irrespective of wealth, gender or other factors. It makes life smoother, but it’s something you would barely notice unless it were suddenly taken away — or unless it had never applied to you in the first place.

    "Stay home save lives" - Translation: Do as you're told.

    Hey strictly speaking it's probably true...less people on the road means less accidents. But we know that's not what they meant...it is psychological conditioning to instill fear, increase peer pressure and remove resistance to tyrannical orders.

    "Tolerate"
    It used to mean put up with something. Now it means embrace or like.

    The real privilege that majority of successful Americans have been the beneficiary of is adequate parenting. Dad loves Mom and vice versa, at least one parent goes to work everyday and they aren't douche-bags. Experience that as a kid and your chances for success in life are enormously higher. Why do you think they are attacking the family with all this sexual anarchy crap?

    All the rest of that leftist drivel is nothing more than agitprop (a word that needs to return to our lexicon).

    This is spot on. Upbringing drives success (yes, there are rare exceptions) and there is no way to legislate or tax for that.

    Well, you can legislatively work to destroy families. Witness the past 60 years.

    Yes...but.

    We love to point to legislation and government programs which have done harm to the family structure, and surely some of them have. But individual choices are ultimately behind the reason that those programs have the power to have proven destructive. And the amount of individual effort required to stay on the good side of things really isn't that great.

    Poverty is not a foregone conclusion when you are of lower IQ or skill. But when you have kids with multiple people (choice), rack up a few convictions for shoplifting/drugs/no-ops (choice), take to drugs/drink (choice), and elect no to secure and maintain steady employment (choice), you have largely consigned yourself, your babymamas/babydaddies, and your children to a life of poverty and dependence on government assistance. Once you have so positioned yourself, you are invariably living in and among people who have made similar life choices, and whose life situations are turbulent and chaotic. Sometimes they are also violent, too. And the longer you are there and the more you assimilate to those ways of life, the harder it will be to get out.

    There is surely a cyclical element to this - if you grow up in this chaos you are likely to replicate it in your own adulthood - but again, the incremental effort required to avoid this is not that great. Finish school, even via a GED. Get a job and hold it. Do not have children with people you aren't married to. If you do this, even the liberal Brookings Institute will tell you you are very unlikely to end up in poverty. And avoiding poverty is distance from disorder as much as anything else is.

    What is missing in all this "privilege" discussion is the flipside of the term as Gabe defines it: familial duty. Nobody wants to talk about this because it is (apparently) mean, judgmental, victim-blaming. By this I mean the obligation the older generation has to help build things to benefit the next generation of the family, to raise the kids/grandkids right, to build wealth, to help the kids/grandkids launch into their lives/careers/businesses. This idea that each generation is supposed to start over from zero is marxist nonsense. Building a family identity and structure that spans generations, socially and economically and whatever else, is what family is supposed to be about, but it requires sacrifice, a long-view time horizon, and a sense of purpose beyond gratifying one's immediate appetites and desires. Each generation is not supposed to start over from zero if the family is doing what it is supposed to be doing.

    But for those people who don't have this background, these "advantages," it is easy to fall into favoring this marxist nonsense. Envy and ignorance, working together, make this siren song particularly appealing. This is surely easier than being the first generation in their recent family tree that works toward a stronger future for their family, especially if they can gripe and threaten their way into the fruits of redistribution in the meantime. Now if they used this redistribution to lay that foundation for the future, that might be somewhat defensible; it would certainly be clever and pragmatic, if nothing else. But how many will do that versus just seeking to satisfy their immediate appetites and desires? I think we know the answer.
