Was it the curse of the "non-hierarchical organisation"?

David

Was it the curse of the “non-hierarchical organisation”?

Well, given there were 200 of them, you’d think someone might have checked. Still, we mustn’t question our new messiahs.

I'm not making the borders and nations connection except that it rhymes.

A worker at the company told the Evening Standard: “They’re protesting against Drax, but they don’t live here anymore. I understand [the protester’s aims] but it helps if they check the facts.

Once can't help but think, if they were actually bothered about the facts, then they wouldn't be eco-loons to begin with

David

I’m not making the borders and nations connection except that it rhymes.

It looks like the usual incoherent patchwork of leftist posturing. For instance, I’m not quite sure how any of their supposed ecological objectives could be met without nations, with borders, to implement them. Do they imagine that some borderless, undifferentiated and continually shifting mass of human beings with no common identity could function at all for any length of time, let alone be motivated in ways they might find agreeable?

Ljh

If there were no power stations I don’t think anyone would be tempted to enter the nation by crossing the border!

MC

No borders, no nations, no gas power stations.

Yay! Let's all live in caves and eat dung as Gaia intended!

One can only hope that the narcissistic clowns obstructing traffic and chaining themselves to things, and boasting “We will shut you down,” were escorted to detention cells that were suitably dark and unheated.

I’m not sure glamour is the word that comes to mind.

Let's see, ten white women who could pass for one's leftie aunt, a Brahmin, and an old-money "Black Royalty" case, by the appearance of it.

I can just feel the oppression.

David

Welcome to London.

WTP

Welcome to London.

Of course people need to be told these things because how else would they possibly know? AIUI, I think you may need additional signs to discourage stabbings and cutting people's heads off. Just a suggestion.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Sorry, forgot the link.

The one who appears from the tiny photo may be of the sub-Continent is apparently African-American (or African/Caribbean/American), the top row second from left one with the glasses has the Hispanic name. They didn't go in order with the names because that would have been cis-hetero patriarchial and oppressive ordering style of dead yte males that might have led one to infer that one had higher rank or status than another or something, I imagine. Putting them in alphabetical order would have been right out.

Regardless, 12 wxmyn mainly wypipo political "scientists", I'd bet the ranch the diversity of thought is nigh palpable.

David

Sorry, forgot the link.

You’ll notice I was much too polite to draw attention to your appalling, shame-inducing error.

David

Meet the diversity!

It reminded me of the Guardian’s 10 trainee journalists who were allegedly “an eclectic mix of voices,” yet sounded eerily similar, both in terms of their backgrounds and their vanities, and all of whom managed to be exactly what you’d expect, only slightly more so.

Darleen

“No borders, no nations, no gas power stations.”

The Los Angeles City Council voted to extend its ban on people living in their vehicles in certain parts of the city (the ban had been city-wide for decades until a federal court struck that down in 2014) ... of course, there were agitators there to shout "shame on you!".

There was one angry female that summed up their side of the argument by shouting "If you want us off the streets, make housing free!"

WTP

If you want us off the streets, make housing free!

Of course no responsible person would say in reply, "If you want to get off the streets, get a job!" Because saying something like that, suggesting that perhaps people need to be responsible for themselves, to take care of themselves, would be irresponsible.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

It reminded me of the Guardian’s 10 trainee journalists...and their vanities...

The biggest issues facing young people today? There's a lot, but I think the over-arching theme would be a feeling of disenfranchisement – a feeling that the systems we have in place don't allow my views, or the views of a lot of young(ish) people, to be properly listened to.

Why?

After university I headed to Afghanistan to produce multimedia for a skateboard charity.

Because.

Adam

They didn’t order the names or photos alphabetically because they are all interchangeably, equally woke. Photographic diversity is supreme.

David
Many of my acquaintances voted to remain, and most cannot conceive of how anybody who was not a xenophobic, warmongering ignoramus could have voted otherwise. Some are proud that they know no one who voted for Brexit (I do not tell them how I voted) and are not in the least embarrassed that they are confessing to know no single member of the 52 percent who voted to leave, like a duchess who knows no one in trade.

Theodore Dalrymple, here.

Sam Duncan

“No borders, no nations ...”

I hope there weren't any Scottish Greenists there. They advocate an international border at Gretna and are propping up the minority nationalist administration in Edinburgh, and I'm sure they wouldn't take kindly to accusations of rank hypocrisy.

“a feeling that the systems we have in place don't allow my views, or the views of a lot of young(ish) people, to be properly listened to.”

Thirty years ago, this argument might have carried some weight. (And let's be honest: it's exactly the same complaint youthful “activists” have been making since time immemorial.) But in the age of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram? It's becoming difficult to avoid earnest spotty herberts pontificating on things they've no experience of and don't understand. Christ, we've just had the heads of major governments genuflecting at the feet of a mentally-disturbed 16-year-old as if she were some kind of Old Testament prophet.

The problem these days is too much listening to dumb kids, not too little. Now get off my lawn.

pst314

I'm not making the borders and nations connection except that it rhymes.

They want a single, global government: socialist, totalitarian, and ever-increasing in power.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...genuflecting at the feet of a mentally-disturbed 16-year-old as if she were some kind of Old Testament prophet.

Not unlike our own US&A leftists and the Harvard bound scholar who couldn't get into Florida state schools, and speaking of open borders, I don't think he is quite making the point intended...

@davidhogg111

It’s so ironic how many politicians’ ancestors came here through open borders, stole land, and killed indigenous people, and now call people that come to the United States the same way illegal.

Hmmm...

...and stay off.

Flubber

How did David Hogg get into Harvard - the boy is thick as mince.

Sporkatus

came here... stole...killed

We shouldn't be so quick to condemn stealing and killing as illegal, let me tell you.
...wait.

Even setting aside the lie that borders were open then and open now, pace Hank Hill "The boy ain't right".

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...the boy is thick as mince.

Yes, as sharp as a velvet bag of styrofoam peanuts, but his politics are both correct and reliable, and that is more important than being able to read, write, or reason like some average Harvard dweeb with a 1520 SAT and straight As.

Darleen

How did David Hogg get into Harvard

Virtue-signally and celebrity-bragging.

You don't think the Malia Obama got there on her SATS & grades? Or Chelsea Clinton at Stanford?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Good lord ! According to the Guardian you hosers up there in Qumbec and Montraal have evidently lost all control of fracking or global climate hysteria and completely flooded North and South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming !

The Great Lakes are now only the Meh Lakes.

It is in The Guardian, it must be true.

If Chelsea inherited half her dad's brains she'd have cruised in. He was a Rhodes Scholar.

And Obama went to Harvard and was President of the Law Review. I don't like him either, but it's undeniable he has some smarts.

Ryan

Do they imagine that some borderless, undifferentiated and continually shifting mass of human beings with no common identity or common bond could function at all for any length of time, let alone in ways that they, and we, might find congenial?

They joined a cult and put bike locks round their necks.

David

They joined a cult and put bike locks round their necks.

Well, yes. There is that.

Still, you have to wonder what it is they imagine holds a society together – culturally, socially, economically. If you disdain even the idea of a shared national identity, and dissolve geographical boundaries, such that anyone from anywhere can enter at will - in any numbers, indefinitely - and then immediately exploit the local infrastructure and support systems, how long will those systems survive? Why would anyone contribute to a supposedly mutual arrangement if there’s no mutuality or reciprocity, no common values, just exploitation by an avalanche of strangers from halfway across the planet? What happens to trust, even basic civility?

They talk about “fuel poverty,” but strive to make energy scarcer and more expensive; they blather about “social justice” and caring for the “vulnerable,” and about opposing the “unsustainable,” but in almost every conceivably way, their ambitions are a blueprint for dystopia, conflict and rapid collapse.

It’s so inverted and perverse, it’s almost funny.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

He was a Rhodes Scholar.

A mystery in of itself lacking, as he did, the usual qualifications of the typical US Rhodes Scholar, not that he actually finished his degree at Oxford.

I don't like him either, but it's undeniable he has some smarts.

Except Harvard did away with selecting Law Review Editors based on grades shortly before his stint there and for which review he wrote nothing, so any evidence of his "smarts" is apparently as sealed as his grades somewhere in the 57 states.

However, back to the climate, I haven't been following events in the recent European slightly warm wave you have been having but good news everyone, according to the Guardian of 2004 relief is just around the corner !

A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020.

Just get your dog sleds and mukluks out. Speaking of frozen people, I was wondering if the Qumbecians are going to be sore about being reduced from a province to a city.

I don't know about the rest of your people but when I want answers to questions like that I consult a lifelong thinker and philosopher - with a notable perspective on history, culture, and humanity - like Conan O'Brien. Comedians are special and because of it, importantly opine on how laughably irrational ordinary people like you are. Just saying.

But if you think of it in terms of ostentatiously signalling caste status, of would-be overlords mouthing pieties from which they themselves clearly expect to be exempt, then it makes a kind of sense.

The John Lennon song. It has replaced the Bible as the goto Book of Common Wisdom for western civilization. Imagine the damage that song could have done if they had bothered to engineer it properly.

Still, you have to wonder what it is they imagine holds a society together – culturally, socially, economically. If you disdain even the idea of a shared national identity, and dissolve geographical boundaries, such that anyone from anywhere can enter at will - in any numbers, indefinitely - and then immediately exploit the local infrastructure and support systems, how long will those systems survive?

They don't imagine (except per the JL song I reference above), because...

They joined a cult

A cargo cult. Stuff just is. It magically shows up. My belief is that once a society becomes wealthy enough to form a critical mass of people who simply have had things given to them, either by richy-rich mommy and daddy or Uncle Sugar, unless the reins of that society are pulled severely, it is doomed. And no society in the history of man has acquired the degree of wealth, a wealth growth that has accelerated over such a short period of time, as this one has. It's the meme of Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times. In human historical terms we are well into some dangerously uncharted waters.

Ten

no society in the history of man has acquired the degree of wealth, a wealth growth that has accelerated over such a short period of time, as this one has.

The associated myth being that it earned it. It didn't. It printed and leveraged it and today it faces a negative sum that's as unpayable as it is incalculable. And, ironically, as denied as it is ignored. So it kicks the can.

In many terms we are well into some dangerously uncharted waters.

WTP

The associated myth being that it earned it. It didn't.

I get your point in general but as specifically stated here, strongly disagree. I'm talking about wealth here, not money nor prestige. The wealth most definitely was earned by the aggregate civilization, otherwise it would not exist to be stolen. The wealth is right here in our discussion. It is in the tremendous advances made in medicine, technology, science, agriculture, and even dare I say in airy-fairy intangibles such social cohesion, as much as that is beginning to slide, and even in things that show up on corporate balance sheets as "good will", as much as I may have trepidation about the usage of that language. It printed and leveraged , most definitely. But it does exist. The print/leverage only concerns who can claim ownership of it. Though again somewhat to your point, the relative value attached to some of it is iffy. But that itself is quite marginal relative to the entirety and depends on unknown future demands relative to current (by all practical meanings static) supply.

Daniel Ream

In many terms we are well into some dangerously uncharted waters.

At this point I'm assuming we'll see Cormac MacCarthy's The Road levels of societal collapse in my lifetime.

Darleen

Obama went to Harvard and was President of the Law Review.

Who during his tenure of the Law Review, was rarely seen and produced no writing of his own.

But geez, how nice for everyone else to carry him so he the Law Review could claim "See? We aren't racist!"

Ten

I get your point in general but as specifically stated here, strongly disagree. I'm talking about wealth here, not money nor prestige.

Etc.

We can couch it as we wish but ultimately we face the inevitable implosion of the real machinery of our national existence. How our notions of our civil superiority comport with our survival skills then is therefore all that matters in our rhetoric today.

The rest is typical American civil religiosity and terribly short sighted at that. No? We're so dim-witted and up our own rears about who we think we are that we make 50 year old moon landings, national football anthems, and militarism the ne plus ultra of proper civil identity and discourse. Meanwhile, as this blog well catalogs, we're fighting an eternal culture and political war badly and that's before we face the real music, which has been my point.

Either we're into uncharted waters or we are not. How you elect to parse that matters when the Big One just happens to be the one virtually everybody denies. The print/leverage absolutely does not 'only concern who can claim ownership of it'. It owns us.

'If it didn't exist it couldn't be stolen' is sophistry. Wall St "owns" a quarter quadrillion in derivatives.

pst314

Spelling is hard. Also cartography.

Hence the origin of the mocking name "the Grauniad".

Farnsworth M Muldoon

In today's exciting episode of "Everything is Racist", stay tuned for, "Robots !"

This result should be troubling for people working in social robotics given the profound lack of diversity in the robots available and under development today [40]. As Riek and Howard [28] have pointed out a Google image search result for “humanoid robots” shows predominantly robots with gleaming white surfaces or that have a metallic appearance (see Figure 3). There are currently very few humanoid robots that might plausibly be identified as anything other than White or Asian. Most of the main research platforms for social robotics, including Nao, Pepper, and PR2, are stylized with white materials and are presumably White.

I am going to go out on a limb and guess our plucky researchers have never heard of sex robots that come in all flavors, but I digress...

More generally, we believe our findings also make a case for more diversity in the design of social robots so that the impact of this promising technology is not blighted by a racial bias. The development of an Arabic looking robot...

The jokes, they write themselves. The whole paper is at the link if you want to see how this groundbreaking study was conducted. I am not responsible for any concussions suffered from banging your heads on tables.

Quebec City is actually already a city, though. It's where that Wolfe and Montcalm thing happened.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

I think, giving the accuracy of the rest of the thing, you may be giving the map makers way too much credit for knowing the distinction. Maybe it is a tourist bureau thing - "Canada is so nice y'all will Qumbec soon, eh !"

It looks like the usual incoherent patchwork of leftist posturing. For instance, I’m not quite sure how any of their supposed ecological objectives could be met without nations, with borders, to implement them.

I've often noticed the Compulsively Woke are horrified at nations but absolutely adore their little cities; they're still patriotic, only incredibly more parochial in their patriotism. Presumably their model for the ideal society is as a series of city states. Indeed, there could be something in that - national politics, being performed on a larger scale, and not on the humble and personal level of local governance, tends to have much more associated corruption.

But then, go back a few centuries to when city states were common, one notices - they were *always* at war with one another.

Chester Draws

It's a very bad idea to assume people you don't like are stupid. A lot of Democrats don't seem to realise that with Trump. But it's no more edifying in reverse.

Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude. Even with a melanin edge, that isn't something to be sniffed at. It's kind of funny people who couldn't produce an academic record half as good as his insisting he's clearly not clever. It comes across as jealousy to me. "I don't like him, he must be stupid".

Of course he didn't do much at the Law Review. The man's a politician, and always has been one. Hes absolutely brilliant at politics too. I regard him doing it for personal benefit largely, but there'd be few that isn't true of.

He didn't produce his scripts for the same reason Trump didn't produce his tax records. He doesn't want opponents sniping at it for years.

TimT

“He didn't produce his scripts for the same reason Trump didn't produce his tax records. He doesn't want opponents sniping at it for years.”

All correct, Chester, and it is interesting to compare him with Boris Johnson, with a similar high level of education at an esteemed institution. Johnson’s journalism, however, is copious and has been effectively trolling lefties for years.

It’s also only fair to note that Obama left some big opportunities for his critics in his two published books, especially his record of drug taking. “I inhaled - that was the point.”

And yet I don’t believe they were either of them always so calculating about their political ambitions.

the Compulsively Woke are horrified at nations but absolutely adore their little cities

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/01/opinion/peter-thiel-google.html

That same year, Google decided to open an A.I. lab in Beijing. According to Fei-Fei Li, the executive who opened it, the lab is “focused on basic A.I. research” because Google is “an A.I.-first company” in a world where “A.I. and its benefits have no borders.” All this is part of a “huge transformation” in “humanity” itself. Back in the United States, a rebellion among rank and file employees led Google last June to announce the abandonment of its “Project Maven” A.I. contract with the Pentagon. Perhaps the most charitable word for these twin decisions would be to call them naïve.

How can Google use the rhetoric of “borderless” benefits to justify working with the country whose “Great Firewall” has imposed a border on the internet itself? This way of thinking works only inside Google’s cosseted Northern California campus, quite distinct from the world outside. The Silicon Valley attitude sometimes called “cosmopolitanism” is probably better understood as an extreme strain of parochialism, that of fortunate enclaves isolated from the problems of other places — and incurious about them.

... The difference between our post-1971 era of globalization and the post-1945 midcentury boom is a breakdown in the relationship between the parts and the whole: An archipelago of inward-looking, parochial places like Wall Street and Silicon Valley have done exceedingly well for themselves while their fellow citizens have been left behind in a stagnant economy.

By now we should understand that the real point of talking about what’s good for the world is to evade responsibility for the good of the country.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

It's kind of funny people who couldn't produce an academic record half as good as his insisting he's clearly not clever.

Except no one actually knows what that academic record really is because he had all of it sealed.

He didn't produce his scripts for the same reason Trump didn't produce his tax records. He doesn't want opponents sniping at it for years.

Yeah, except anyone actually graduating magna cum laude would have nothing to be sniped at ("Oh look, straight 'As', what a dweeb"), and his legion of sycophants would have had them carved onto Mt. Rushmore, and recited every 4th of July by the Marine Band Chorus.

pst314

Don't forget the most important part:
With themselves in charge.

And we must also not forget that the reason Democrat cities are such failures, are such cesspits of poverty and crime, bad schools and filth, is that this benefits the left: the key to their winning elections is in having a populace which is uneducated and unemployable and which therefore can be counted on to vote for those who promise lots of free stuff.

It's kind of funny people who couldn't produce an academic record half as good as his insisting he's clearly not clever.

Clever or intelligent? He's not intelligent enough to avoid Marx. Or the attendant dysfunction. Or the most prolific spate of institutional corruption in American history. So, clever or intelligent?

And to what aim, which is kinda the salient upshot.

It comes across as jealousy to me. "I don't like him, he must be stupid".

Too bad because it's actually that normals don't like Marxists. Because they're unavoidably stupid although, to your point, they're frequently clever.

Boatswain's Mate

And we must also not forget that the reason Democrat cities are such failures, are such cesspits of poverty and crime, bad schools and filth, is that this benefits the left: the key to their winning elections is in having a populace which is uneducated and unemployable and which therefore can be counted on to vote for those who promise lots of free stuff.

Rush Limbaugh used to (and may does still, I don't know, I quit listening to talk radio ages ago, about the time I quit watching cable news) say that Democrats aren't interested in solving any problems because they'd rather have the issues to campaign on.

Thus, they want, they need, racism to continue to exist (despite the demand far outstripping the supply), as opposed to ending it, so their candidates can continue to run on, "Elect me! Because racism!"

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Obama or Vogon, you decide...

Under water grottos, caverns
Filled with apes
That eat figs.
Stepping on the figs
That the apes
Eat, they crunch.
The apes howl, bare
Their fangs, dance,
Tumble in the
Rushing water,
Musty, wet pelts
Glistening in the blue.

WTP

Hey, hey, hey...I'm sure you are aware that when it comes to Vogon poetry, and especially as September soon is rapidly approaching...like soon...no one can top the eminent Algore:

One thin September soon
A floating continent disappears
In midnight sun
Vapors rise as
Fever settles on an acid sea
Neptune's bones dissolve
Snow glides from the mountain
Ice fathers floods for a season
A hard rain comes quickly
Then dirt is parched
Kindling is placed in the forest
For the lightning's celebration
Unknown creatures
Take their leave, unmourned
Horsemen ready their stirrups
Passion seeks heroes and friends
The bell of the city
On the hill is rung
The shepherd cries
The hour of choosing has arrived
Here are your tools

Chester Draws

I would argue Obama is clever. But not wise.
