Here’s the easy key to understanding what the left does and says these days: it’s all, 100% an expression of the will-to-power. Only the rank and file useful idiots actually make an attempt to “believe” the impossible-to-believe ideological silliness. All of that is purely for the troops. The less they really know about the big war plans, the better. After all, if they knew the end goal, would they so willingly lemming themselves off the cliff for the benefit of the owners?
For example, take the recent news from Google. No doubt the leadership believe they are doing good with their diversity policy, no doubt they are utterly brainwashed themselves. Thing is, the will-to-power is an instinct, so it requires no awareness, and no conscious cognition to function. The conscious mind can chatter away with its blithe excuses while the real work happens down below. It’s true of all of us. So, in a way, Progressives aren’t hypocrites. They have totally veiled their own selfish interests from themselves, and there’s simply no facet of the ideology that attempts to teach self-awareness. Being a doctrine of Materialism, Progressivism simply hasn’t got any spiritual point of view that could fuel a look within.
But that policy also happens to have the effect of potentially knocking down the very highly paid white male programmers that they are totally dependent on. Well, what a shock.
Let’s not be children about this. I’ve been in IT for 20+ years, I know my world like the back of my hand. Here’s the truth: the world’s digital infrastructure is utterly dependent on white male programmers, mostly Americans. It works like this: the top tier of programmers is 90% white, the remainder is Asian and Indian. The middle and lower tiers are dominated by Indians mostly (there aren’t nearly as many Asians here), who take direction from the whites. They are very diligent, solid workers but they are simply not capable of the independence of mind and “Let’s go do it!” ethos of the whites. They are trained by their culture to be submissive, to take orders well, not to rock the boat, to cover their asses at every turn because someone is sure to kick them in it otherwise. White American guys give not two fucks about any of that. We will never get the innovation and quality from Asians and Indians that we need without the leadership of whites.
As for women, I’ve worked with four (4) female programmers in 20 years. One was first rate, of the others one was Chinese and forced into it by her parents, the other two are no longer doing it. I asked the good one: has she ever faced discrimination in her career? No hesitation: “Nope.”
Take a deep breath: women by and large detest computers, much less programming. Indeed anything at all that has the air of geekiness about it is a total turn off to them, by and large. Think prog rock.
There are also very, very few African American or Hispanic programmers, but I don’t know why that would be.
This means white male workers such as myself command the highest salaries. The whole IT industry would just love for this to change. They are using “diversity” as a fig leaf to control and cow their arrogant white male programmer workforce — what a shocking thing from a huge corporation! And what better way to put some heft into it than to fire one of them for calling them out, as I have, with simple plain TRUTH.
So, please, red-pillers, and opponents of Progressivism and its poisonous effects, let’s have no more engagement with Progressives on their silly and transparent “arguments”. They themselves are utterly incapable of defending them. They can only say “NAZI!!!!” to truth tellers because they have no real belief or understanding of what they themselves think. It means nothing more than “We’re totally out of ammo”. It’s far better to drive them to apoplexy so they have to hang up the phone, run away, and await new orders from The Times.
