Indeed. People do the same, but even people will turn to cannibalism when in desperate straits.

That is the nature of social animals. You assert this as if I have said otherwise. I'm simply saying that some of this is hard wired into people.
Tainari88 wrote:Oh Senor Blackjack, I think trying to compare different species is a mistake.
Why? I'm not saying the species are equals by any stretch of the imagination. I'm just saying that species have innate tendencies. Social animals learn social behavior.

You'll get no argument from me. That's why I think our own establishment is nearing its end. It's why I find it comical to watch AOC blast Nancy Pelosi. I like Trump for the same reason.

Chernobyl is more dangerous in the long run than a nuclear weapon. I think countries seeking nukes are just plain stupid. The weapons were only meant to deliver a knockout blow to war making industry, which was centralized during WWII. If you nuked NYC today, you would do absolutely nothing to the ability of the United States to produce weapons. You'd just kill a lot of New Yorkers and piss off a very powerful country.
Tainari88 wrote:You should read "Ghost in your Brain" it is about how malleable human minds are especially with learning and 're-programming' we are living cells and they are made for adaptation and change. Because that is what this type of system requires. People don't have to accept that their behavior and their thoughts are beyond their ability to adapt or change. They can change their behavior and they can change their attitudes and their thought patterns even in their very old age.
Behavior can indeed change, but it can be difficult to change--especially around addictive substances. Even down to processed food, people will manipulate combinations of fat, sugar, salt and unami (in the form of monosodium glutamate) to get people to eat more of the product and thus buy more of it. Cheez-its anyone? That's pretty much the crack cocaine of food. You know what works well with addiction? Religion.
Tainari88 wrote:A problem with conservative thought in politics is thinking that change is something that can't happen because it is destructive.
Conservative thought isn't about resisting change for its own sake. It is about conserving useful institutions. In America, conservative means preserving freedom. That's why conservatives typically oppose big government.
Tainari88 wrote:We are changing every single day Blackjack. But why not change dealing with improving life for the group.
I'm high IQ Tainari88. I have no problem with change. I deal with it constantly. I work on the leading edge of technology. It's low IQ people who resist change. This is well established in social studies.
Tainari88 wrote:If it comes down to your life or mine and you are the one threatening do you really think an IQ that is higher is going to save you from a low IQ person with their finger on the trigger and in pain because you are part of the fucked system that thinks their low IQ is useless and needs to be relegated to shit and nothing status in the society in which he shares his air and space? You either learn to get along with many people in this world or you wind up losing your life because you failed to realize they also can pull some triggers and use terror on you. You don't need to be a genius to kill somebody Blackjack. You just need to either be desperate enough, angry enough or in enough internal pain to not care about what is going on anymore. Is that the kind of society you are shooting for Blackjack?
It is precisely what I'm warning the establishment about. I did not say that 60M Americans were deplorable. That was Hillary Clinton. Do you understand the meme "Learn to Code" and why it was funny for conservatives to say that to journalists who had been laid off? Journalists had been saying that to coal miners, steel workers, auto workers, and factory workers of many stripes for decades. Not everybody is good at abstraction.
Tainari88 wrote:How is that establishing healthy relationships Blackjack? Where the other isn't your equal? You tell me what happens when someone knows that you think they are not your equal and you treat them as 'inferiors' in some subtle and not so subtle ways? How does that manifest in your life? You tell me...
Tell me Tainari88, did you change your own diapers as an infant? Were you that competent? I'm guessing you weren't and someone with superior skills and greater development had to do that for you. People are not equal. Just because everyone is unique doesn't mean that you have to treat people badly. When people speak of identity politics, my response to a "first woman president" is that we need to have a first midget president. Take this making the rounds on the news today:
The dude is like five feet tall. If the left is serious about identity politics, let's have a midget for president. That would be even better than Trump.
Tainari88 wrote:How do you think the other reacts to knowing that you opine they are not your equal? You tell me (I am all ears?).
I'm pretty sure they think that I am saying they are inferior. Why? Because that is what modern egalitarian propaganda teaches. They are making an inference based largely on Marxist or anti-aristocratic politics. In integer math, not equal implies a greater than or less than relationship. In more abstract math, that's not necessarily the case. In computer science, you could say at an abstract level that two objects instantiated by the same class are equal at one level of abstraction. At the level of identity, they are most certainly not. If we bank at the same bank, the computer logic that computes my account is identical to the logic that computes yours. The database structure for your checking account is the same data structure for my checking account. Yet, we have different amounts of money in our accounts, and our accounts are numbered differently to identify them uniquely. That is, all accounts are the same at one level of abstraction, but at an absolute level they are all absolutely different and none of them are the equal of the other. That's reality. That's fact. That's not, however, how a person inculcated with Western or Marxist propaganda would interpret a statement on inequality, because they are typically not trained in math and logic, but national and cultural myths are a secular religion in the West and propagated constantly.

Who authored OP thread opposing the destruction of a mural of George Washington painted by a communist and funded by Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal? That was me. Do you think the left destroying murals and taking down statues and preventing children from reading anti-racist Mark Twain books because they might contain the N-word in them is a good idea? The globalists do. Haven't you noticed that I oppose the globalists?

Of course not.

So is abortion.
Tainari88 wrote:Do you think the Mesoamerican civilizations thought differently about their sun god Blackjack?
I imagine they had their own dogma, but they were not unique in worshiping the sun. The Romans did. Sunday is named for Sol Invictus, the invincible Sun.
Tainari88 wrote:I suggest you try to live and think and be like another ethnic group for a long long time and then say and believe you are superior to them...you won't.
Tainari88, I think you are wasting your time with me, because you do not understand what I am saying. I am talking about individuals and you are talking about groups. I am not a Marxist. So I do not subscribe to ideas like white supremacy and other such nonsense. I do not find myself in unlike ethnicities and feel myself superior to them.
On the contrary, I work with other ethnicities across the globe on a daily basis. I'm pointing out the fact that people like me and high IQ people in other societies can and do work together on a global basis daily. Lower IQ people generally do not. I am not the person calling 60M Americans deplorable. That's coming from the Democratic party. Donald Trump is not saying "all Mexicans are rapists" and other lies that the media tells. He is saying that a lot of illegal immigrants have criminal backgrounds and are not wanted in their societies, and they come to the US illegally where they commit crimes. A lawful immigration system would allow us to keep those people out of our society. Similarly, Trump wants a skills-based immigration system that furthers American business by matching people with available jobs when there aren't any qualified Americans willing to do them at market rates. By contrast, the globalists want to drive down wage rates and use illegal immigration to that end. By accusing people of being racist, etc., the globalists/capitalists have tricked you into furthering their agenda. I am capitalist, but nationalist too.
Tainari88 wrote:But empathy is not something class snobs excel at Blackjack. They lack that ability.
Right. That's why Trump won. He's not a snob. He will shake a coal miner's dirty hand. Hillary Clinton will not. People like Elizabeth Warren patronize people with statements like, "I'm gonna get me a beer," and then drink the beer out of the bottle as if it is the first time she drank a beer in her life. People see right through that. That's why Trump is likely to win again.
Tainari88 wrote:I have hope for you Blackjack.
You're wasting your time there too. I don't treat people snobbishly. In California, it's rich liberals who are the snobs.

Right. That's also true in Dubai. There are poor people, but no beggars or homeless or drug addicts lying around. Everyone who can work does work. The welfare state zaps people's souls.

Compare a US county hospital to a private hospital. It doesn't take much to understand why Americans don't want to have the health care offered at county hospitals. Heck, I just had an outpatient surgery and it was like going to the Ritz Carlton.
