People only mind being burgled 'because we've trained people to have these idiotic attitudes!'

Someone should test his theory.

The only thing more useless than a professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies is a rock music critic.

Higher 'education' is the second most corrupt activity in American society.

David

Someone should test his theory.

It would, I think, be interesting to see how our super-woke lawyer reconciles his preening with actual reality, up close, first-hand, and to see how well that smugness stands up to the kind of fear and degradation that he so casually dismisses when it happens to other, poorer people.

Both Mr Stafford Smith and Ms Aitkenhead insist that being burgled has “zero” emotional impact and no real material repercussions - and is therefore trivial and unworthy of serious punishment. Which is much easier to claim if, like Stafford Smith, you’re well-heeled and from a very comfortable background of upscale boarding schools, costing a mere £12,000 a term. Neither of them pauses to consider the impact of burglary, even repeatedly burglary, on someone who is, say, elderly and isolated, and perhaps uninsured, and who has no means of replacing whatever possessions were stolen or destroyed. The victim’s violation, and the subsequent anxiety, and the sense of injustice, are dismissed as trivial. An “idiotic attitude.”

It’s quite a thing, the interview. The self-admiring duo casually insult the victims of crime as if doing so were a credential, proof of piety, and the moral idiocy just gushes out. Mr Stafford Smith also boasts that he dislikes Conservative voters more than muggers and carjackers, presumably on grounds of “social justice.”

He’s so terribly grown-up.

Well, yes, if you compare it to the sun eventually exploding and killing every single living thing on Earth - he's quite right.

An “idiotic attitude.”

Lefties project.

David

Lefties project.

Well, the woke position - the one that apparently isn’t idiotic - is that if your elderly parents are burgled and left fearful and distraught, and if this upsets you, then you, and they, are just bourgeois reactionaries, unschooled in modern theory. You see, the correct, more sophisticated view is that it’s unfair for “poor people” - an eye-widening euphemism for habitual criminals - to “end up in prison” for repeatedly committing crimes that, according to the Guardian, nobody should care about. Say, when returning home and finding the door kicked in and anything of value, however modest, stolen or destroyed by sociopathic predators.

Because, hey, burglars have feelings too.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

This one seems legit.

Like Hawaiian Time (where when the repair guy says he'll be there tomorrow around 0900 it really means sometime this week, maybe) there is a difference between being lazy, disorganized, and/or disinterested and the dreck this young miss is pushing, not that I don't take anything from the "Crunk Feminist Collective" with all the seriousness something so named deserves. However, this statement regarding the criminologists...

...lack of direct contact with subjects, situations, and neighbourhoods—their propensity to abstraction—invites misunderstandings about the reality...

...also applies as I am willing to bet the back 40 that our erstwhile assistant professor has spent nigh zero time (pasts, presents, or futures, real or imagined) with "African-American folks" other than in her circle of "academics", for example, former sharecroppers of the Mississippi delta who actually experienced the troubles she is trying to claim as her own - gotta be an oppressed victim what with spending your entire adult life in the hardscrabble world of universities. Up before dawn, scratching through rows and rows of books in an air conditioned library, backbreaking discussions in the faculty lounge till after sundown, day after day...

will create a space of support and camaraderie for hip hop generation feminists of color, queer and straight, in the academy and without, by building a rhetorical community, in which we can discuss our ideas, express our crunk feminist selves...

If only Muddy Waters were still alive, the song he would write about that.

Mags

You see, the correct, more sophisticated view is that it’s unfair for “poor people” - an eye-widening euphemism for habitual criminals - to “end up in prison”

If more burglars were shot and killed, ending up in prison wouldn't be a problem.

I have to say, the savings in incarceration costs, and the unlikelihood of recidivism, are factors in its favour.

Tim Newman

I've heard people who, erm, aren't so enthusiastic about vibrancy levels use the term CPT - coloured people time - to describe the inability of certain groups to do anything in a timely manner, including turning up. It's rather amusing that the wokest of the woke tend to agree with this concept.

David
The English departments of Cornell and Harvard have dropped the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) requirement for graduate applicants… The professors voted overwhelmingly to drop the two tests involved, the general one (with the mathematical, verbal, and analytic sections) and the subject one (a multiple-choice test of literary-historical knowledge and literary language comprehension). The main reason, the [Cornell English department] says, is... “The uncertain predictive value of the GRE exam is far outweighed by the toll it takes on student diversity.

"says that the very concept of time itself is racially biased"

This has long been used an excuse for "people of color" chronically not showing up for work on time--which is thus evidence that "the white man's time" is oppressing them. I actually had a Native American say that to my face (he also had great difficulty constructing a clear, linear narrative of any event or chain of logical reasoning), but prudently refrained from suggesting that it was merely a lack of self-discipline brought about by faulty upbringing.

pst314

"CPT - coloured people time"

The Woke terminology for "lazy and shiftless but have a great sense of rhythm."
It's simultaneously hilarious and disheartening.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

It's rather amusing that the wokest of the woke tend to agree with this concept.

I try to be an equal opportunity misanthrope, but the perpetual propensity of the wokest of the woke to get out their broad brushes and thin paint to cover entire populations is not only tiresome, but insulting to members of their own [insert group here] who don't buy into their claptrap and psychopathology.

Now, we also see this idea that black people are people either alternately outside the bounds of time or stuck in the past in a scenario where, much as I’m doing right now, a black person stands up and insists that racism still matters...

Yes, racism matters to you because your livelihood depends upon it, to the legions of blacks and people of other tints who get up and go to work every day who you insult by saying they can't function in "white time", not so much.

@fnord
"The only thing more useless than a professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies is a rock music critic."

That's a bit harsh on the rock music critics. I genuinely enjoy their work.

Hal

. . . the way we “position ourselves in relationship to time comes out of histories of European and Western thought”; in other words, “white people own time.”

Awhile back I met a rabbi who had earlier been a Zen monk for a number of years. His comment on his initial encounter with Zen included his having some general idea that the practice of the Buddha Dharma involved just going with some flow, cool, man, time is like whatever, y'know . . . and then when taking up the actual Buddhist practice, he found instead the actuality that while yes, everything does occur in its time, that particular moment of time is always RIGHT NOW.

David

That’s a bit harsh on the rock music critics.

It takes a professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies to make rock critics seem unpretentious.

If this were a sane world people like this would be working in a circus tent, hideously freaksish but ultimately harmless.

To get a sense of the pretension Professor Wax is describing – the laughable perversity of it – try to imagine some of those pretenders – say, tenured academics at Harvard and Yale – aping chav culture in their own comfortable, middle-class homes, with their own comfortable, middle-class children.

Mr Stafford Smith also boasts that he dislikes Conservative voters more than muggers and carjackers, presumably on grounds of “social justice.”

This is a feature of leftist "justice" and has its roots in Leninism and Stalinism. The on-the-ground camps of the Gulag were "supervised" by real criminals (murderers, thieves, rapists, etc.) who made life even more difficult for the "politicals." Mr. Stafford just continues the tradition and would, no doubt, impose a similar hierarchy if he were in charge.

Killer Marmot

Rich people don't need the rule of law. They're quite capable of hiring whatever help they need to protect themselves. And to a lesser degree, so too the middle class. It's poor people who need the rule of law to protect what few resources they have and to give themselves a chance to better their condition.

Could it be that Social Justice Warriors despise the oppressed? So much of what they do seems designed to keep the poor in their place while pretending to work in their interests.

thereby implying that the wellbeing of burglars is more important than the wellbeing of their numerous, often very poor, victims

In a similar vein, when three hoodlums, armed with brass knuckles and knives, broke into a home while the owner was sleeping, and the owner promptly shot them all, there was considerable outrage.

At the homeowner.

The complaint was that it wasn't fair to the poor burglars to be outgunned so badly.

Of course, they were expecting to face an unarmed homeowner, with only knives and brass knuckles. Because apparently, three armed men and one unarmed man is more fair.

Jay Guevara

According to our feminist educator, time “doesn’t feel linear” for black people – all of them, presumably - because, she says, they live with “the residue of past historical trauma.” You see, for “African-American folks,” the present “feels like the past” – specifically, “narratives of race that are rooted in violence and a lack of freedom” – i.e., slavery – “can become our reality again at any moment.”

Sounds like a great argument for giving them longer prison sentences.

Jay  Guevara

Theodore Dalrymple's book "Our Culture, What's Left of It" is a must-read regarding crime, criminology, and leftist rubbish pertaining thereto.

skidancer

If one were to read Daniel J Boorstin's excellent "The Discoverers" one would learn that the western concept of time is. perhaps, not what humankind used to understand as time. The entire first part of the book explores that concept. For those who aren't aware, Boorstin was a Librarian of Congress, a scholar of no mean repute, and a prolific author.

Here is a nice read that is online: http://www.exactlywhatistime.com/other-aspects-of-time/time-in-different-cultures/ which deals with societies' relationship to the concept of time.

So, while the interview with the professor is absurd for the most part, she is correct (although most certainly wrong about the definitions that she uses) regarding the perception of time in re: linear vs non-linear.

TimT

There have been numerous lame-o progressive attempts to reorganise time itself, going back as far as the embarrassing French revolutionary calendar. (One of my favourite stories of revolting peasants deals with the time when the authorities shifted to using the modern 365/366 day calendar, which meant taking a few days off the current calendar to align it with the rest of Europe - an angry mob took to the streets, shouting 'give us back our 11 days!')

I think we can all agree, though, that daylight savings is an utter abomination, and anyone who doesn't agree with me is a communist. ;)

Assistant Village Idiot

The idea of linear versus circular or seasonal time is a Western concept. Most cultures think in terms of weeks, seasons, years, repeated festivals, etc. It is Judeo-Christian, not even Greek, Roman, Nordic, Persian, to think of the world in terms of beginning, middle, and end. She sorta got that right. But she missed the part where this has resulted in enormous gains in feeding the poor, rights for women, medical advances, etc.

My straight white cisgendered male attitude confines me to the belief that doing good for the suffering and distraught is actually a good thing.

Stephen J.

I understand the aggravation factor of the daylight savings time change, but honestly, the chance for a free extra hour of sleep once a year is worth it for me. :)

I was the victim of a Burglary last year- walking into my home while they were there stealing. Very dangerous and my whole family is still dealing with stress related issues from that. The burglar got away and was eventually caught- we spent a long summer dealing with the legal system in California. Just awful experience all around.

DA's office didn't want to prosecute to fullest extent of the law. A Public Defender that didn't think the crime was "that big of a deal". A judge who eventually let him off with probation. despite this crime requiring 2 4 or 6 years in state prison as a mandatory sentence.

They let him go on probation. He lasted less than a week. just 4 days later the burglar went to another town, committed 3 Armed Robberies, then kidnapped and raped 2 women from one of the businesses.

Rockin Redwing

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hopi_time_controversy

Whorf argued that Hopi has "no words, grammatical forms, construction or expressions that refer directly to what we call 'time'", and concluded that the Hopi had "no general notion or intuition of time as a smooth flowing continuum in which everything in the universe proceeds at equal rate, out of a future, through the present, into a past"

I read Whorf when I was a teenager, and my mind was blown by the possibility that learning this exotic language could free one from the square, oppressive Western notions of time and space. Knuckling down to the Hopi grammar books would be like taking LSD without all the squidgy biochemistry.

But if you take Whorfian thinking literally, Hopi native speakers are going to have trouble understanding a wall calendar, so what chance would they have of graduating high school or mastering any modern technology. For parents to want to pass on such a language to their children would be like a cognitive equivalent of foot binding or genital mutilation.

pst314

A Public Defender that didn't think the crime was "that big of a deal".

The people who choose to become Public Defenders tend to have that attitude. (Which reminds us that "Public Defender" is often a euphemism for "protector of criminals".)

TimT

SF story idea: a person teaches themselves a language without any notion of time while at the same, er, time, going to great pains to lose their own language in order to become a time traveller. Of course, once they cease to regard time as in any sense meaningful their newfound powers become nugatory!

...yeah, maybe it needs work.

I do find these theories fascinating, though on a practical level of course they seem somewhat self-defeating. And it seems highly unlikely that Whorf's interpretation of Hopi is entirely correct: I mean, out of all the world languages you've got to go to a relatively obscure language to justify your theories? Cool story, bro.

Chester Draws

I mean, out of all the world languages you've got to go to a relatively obscure language to justify your theories? Cool story, bro.

Actual LOL.

It's like all those "pacificist" tribes, that on fuller examination have higher murder rates than Detroit. I suspect that if you live as a Hopi you have a very good understanding of time, at least as it pertains to the year. They were croppers, so the chance they had no understanding of a necessary time to plant,a time to water, and a necessary time to harvest -- and each specific to different plants -- is zero.

The Wikipedia article is good for a laugh. In one paragraph we get "The Hopi and the Navajo did not have a conception of land being bounded and divided." and then two paragrahhs down we get "The Hopi and the Navajo fought over land,". An interesting conjunction of ideas to believe. (What they might not have had is a concept of individual ownership, but they sure as hell knew the boundaries of their lands.)

DA's office didn't want to prosecute to fullest extent of the law.

You may have no idea the pressure from Sacramento (and ever changing rules from them) about NOT convicting criminals.

Indeed, if it was this guy's first offense, I'm surprised he was convicted, or pled guilty, to a felony that exposed him to 2/4/6 years state prison.

That reminds me: Farmers work by the sun and the seasons and the needs of their crops and animals: At certain times they work extremely hard long days while at other times they work relatively little each day. When rural Britons began moving to the cities to take factory jobs the managers had great difficulty training them to work to the clock. It took a long time to train people to new habits, one solution to which was the factory whistle which workers could hear from their homes.

Darleen

Clocks were expensive. One of the reasons town churches sounded the bell tower on the hour.

IIRC, one of the major pushes for standardized time was train travel. If each town, city, region kept it's own time, it made a shambles of any effort to schedule trains' arrivals and departures.

I was the victim of a Burglary last year- walking into my home while they were there stealing.

Ah, but according to our betters at the Guardian, the consequences are negligible and the emotional impact is “zero.”

I’ve mentioned before that, back in the Nineties, I worked at a large recording studio, often through the night. The studio was in a converted factory in a rough part of town. From time to time, a local gang would try to break in after dark, when the offices in the building had closed, presumably unaware that we were still working. Their attempts to break in weren’t successful, but I can’t say that it’s pleasant to hear the hammering of half a dozen youths armed with crowbars. We once saw the same gang from an office window. The younger members – aged maybe 10 or 11 – rode bikes and scouted the area for potential witnesses before giving the all clear, at which point, the older members would attempt a spot of wealth redistribution, tools at the ready.

Presumably, Mr Stafford Smith would have us believe that these creatures were merely the victims of some ill-defined injustice and tragic circumstance, and therefore deserving of our sympathies. They were in fact very organised predators and actively, even gleefully, making choices.

David

A Public Defender that didn’t think the crime was “that big of a deal”.

Presumably on grounds that it’s being done to someone else, and not their own family. The desire to excuse malevolence and spare its perpetrators from consequences is, I think, a defining vice of the age.

Sorry, Professor, but time is universally recognized as an objective reality. It may be measured differently at different times and places, but is is not an invention of white people to oppress the “othered”. Blame the Sumerians.

Watcher In The Dark

We are surrounded by self-professed 'experts' who know -- despite not actually living in the everyday world -- just how our society works (and equally who is to blame for a less-than-perfect lot) and with it are absolutely convinced society can be 'improved' (usually with unlikely outcomes attached, inevitably leading to unforeseen events) with little effort. But whenever I hear these 'experts' squeak I am always reminded of the saying:

"You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality."

Regarding time and the Hopi. When I was at school I was reliably informed by teachers that the Eskimos had 80 words for snow. Having learned later that this was nonsense, I called bullshit and I note the Wiki article's 1st para ends "...whether the Hopi "had a concept of time", despite it now being well established that they do".

I worked in Africa for 5 years and found that promises of "it will be done ready for tomorrow" were frequently unfulfilled. I could have escaped into fantasies of "this Western concept of time" but I soon recognised that requests from such people's manager (regardless of race) were fulfilled on time. Problem: I was lower in the pecking order. Solution: make the request to the manager who would delegate it to the same person. Much more effective.

The knife thing is laughably stupid. While it's not easy to make a working gun, a piece of scrap steel and 10 minutes at a grinder will make a new knife. Turning them in won't change things.

I don't think young people believe me when I tell them it was common to carry pocket knives (myself included), even to school. No secret, the teachers knew and just kept an eye out for dangerous play. My wife's dad didn't want her to carry on (it's not ladylike) but her brothers did. Neither did we have ID cards or locked security doors on the school. Different world.
