Types of political idealogies
NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian has issued a warning not to travel to Victoria because Victoria, you see, is rotting from the inside, infested with Corona-virus, up to 49 whole cases a day now, which is about 4 times as much as the daily caseload in NSW !
The question now is, how could this happen? How could Victoria drop the ball so badly, when it had the harshest lockdown restrictions in the nation , where even single family members could not visit each other for nearly three months, where people were fined for driving in the wrong suburb, golfing, fishing or sitting by themselves on a park bench?
It might be, because our government, run by delusional fools led by a communist style dictator Dan Andrews, really believed the virus could be kept to minimal numbers by enforcing said draconian lockdown, not realizing that they were simply kicking the can down the road and once things opened up, the virus would spread again.
Now even 49 cases a day is not very much when we compare with the numbers from the rest of the world, but they are sure to rise exponentially in the next weeks.
One reason for the “outbreak” were non-compliance with the rules by – wouldn’t you know it, Muslim families celebrating Eid. Of course it took a full 3 days for this little juicy bit of knowledge to emerge, until then they were simply “families” that flouted the rules. Families? How about a bunch of religious lunatics who are simply unable to exist without their rostered seasonal observances.
But speaking of lunatics, the ‘Black Lives Matter Most’ movement and their phony grievances – run by the far far-out left -who want to see everything burn, could not wait to go their ideologically driven ritual marches and that in a city where the Footy is still the number one religion but banned until further notice. Of course they had the blessing of the government to go ahead unfined , mainly because there were simply too many of them and it could have turned into an ugly bloodbath with police, or possibly the army.
Of course other states had those protests too and have not yet seen a rise in cases. To that I can only say : Just you wait, it will take another week to reach two infection cycles and I will bet my hat that cases in other states will rise too. Like Italy in Europe and New York in the States, Victoria is simply the first to succumb.
The truth is, respiratory viruses are designed to be transmitted and we are designed to get them. Lockdowns don’t work for several reasons and they destroy economies, but mainly , unless you practically threaten people with being welded into apartments, people will always find a way to circumvent the restrictions, maybe because they are young and not at risk, maybe because they don’t believe in the existence of the virus or maybe because they understand the risks and still don’t care. You will never ever get 100% compliance and because of that , there will be outbreaks once the lockdown is lifted. And the stricter the lockdown, the more people will rebel against the restrictions.
There is no doubt that the virus is real and deadly to a vast number of old/sick people, but it’s gonna do it’s thing, despite our best efforts. Even countries (or states) that have had few cases and brought their numbers down to zero will eventually have to open their borders to ward off economic ruin. And then what ??
Coronavirus cannot be controlled. We have to learn to live with it. It’s just a shame the economy had to be ruined for that lesson to be learnt.
This retard clearly does not realize the hypocrisy of opening a carbonated drink to protest against the claimed CO2 based global warming. Does he realize the satisfying hiss the drink makes as he opens it is pure CO2 being released into the atmosphere? Does he realize the CO2 burned to generate the electricity required to make that aluminum can he will use just once and then throw away?
Nope, just a useful idiot like the Communists who are trying to take over Extinction Rebellion (XR). So what’s it really about and why now? Well the global warming alarmist rhetoric comes from the UN IPCC, and the UN is almost bankrupt. So the UN needs to get about 1 Billion dollars in the next 2 weeks or cease operations. The UN’s plan is to unleash its hordes of brainwashed global warming activists to create disruption in western countries to coerce more money out of those governments. So really XR is international economic terrorism, disguised as environmental activism.
So face it XR you have been played and this is your poster-boy, an attention seeking hipster uni drop out with wealthy parents and no clue about how the climate or environment works. You all look stupid and are just wasting everyone’s time and achieving nothing. Global warming is fake and so are your reasons for existence.
Here Stefan Molyneux is the most outrage I have ever seen him, but with good reason.
Why not cap it off with some more Stefan…

The chaser has spoken, they are definitely on the money for this one.
One of the weird consequences of the 2008 financial meltdown and the measures taken to counteract it (enormous sums of money to help banks) was the revival of the work of Ayn Rand, the closest one can get to an ideologist of the “greed is good” radical capitalism. The sales of her opus Atlas Shrugged exploded. According to some reports, there are already signs that the scenario described in Atlas Shrugged – the creative capitalists themselves going on strike – is coming to pass in the form of a populist right. However, this misreads the situation: what is effectively taking place today is almost the exact opposite. Most of the bailout money is going precisely to the Randian “titans”, the bankers who failed in their “creative” schemes and thereby brought about the financial meltdown. It is not the “creative geniuses” who are now helping ordinary people, it is the ordinary people who are helping the failed “creative geniuses”.
John Galt, the central character in Atlas Shrugged, is not named until near the end of the novel. Before his identity is revealed, the question is repeatedly asked, “Who is John Galt”. Now we know precisely who he is: John Galt is the idiot responsible for the 2008 financial meltdown, and for the ongoing federal government shutdown in the US.
The first thing you need to know about Zizek is that he is a Marxist who grew up in a communist country Yugoslavia, which disintegrated into a bitter and protracted civil war after the fall of the Soviet Union. Both of his parents were the privileged elites in Yugoslav society, his father an economist and his mother an accountant both of whom worked for the massive state apparatus. Zizek fails to see that Marxism-communism was to blame for the failures that ultimately destroyed his homeland and simply continued to promote Marxism in other places. While its fair to say that Zizek has some interesting thoughts about people’s perceptions of the world they are in, and different ways of looking at things, this alone does not put him any closer to the truth. Zizek fails to offer an alternative to the current system and even fails to define what will trigger the revolution from it. So Zizek is still failing in to provide anything useful. His criticism of the current system are more like attacks on possible solutions. Zizek is a Marxist and that fact alone is enough to discredit him, but I will show his flawed thinking process with what he wrote above.
Zizek is attacking Ayn Rand, a free market capitalism proponent. So as they have wildly divergent world views as criticism is not going to be fair, especially considering Ayn Rand had been dead for decades before Zizek makes his criticism.
The ‘greed is good’ style capitalism is still predicated (like almost every other economic system ) on laws existing and being enforced. The bank bailout we an example of the opposite of Randian titans, the banks failed, and in a Randian world they would not be considered titans, they were fraudsters whose Ponzi scheme had collapsed. They were the exact opposite of titans, they were charlatans. In the Randian world there would not be a government with enough resources to bailout titanic business failures and no government would feel any political motivation to do so. Ina Randian world the banksters would have been bankrupted, many of the parties involved would have been charged with crimes of fraud, tax evasion and money laundering and for a few, treason and supporting terrorism. What of the depositors and mortgage holders? In a bankruptcy of a bank, a new bank, (not made up of the previous criminals) buys up the assets and liabilities of the previous bank and everyone is a little wiser and more wary for the experience. This process is how a Randian system self corrects and reduces tyranny. The rules must be enforced, or ultimately there are no rules, just privilege. Privilege in it’s truest sense meaning Privi (private) Legis (law), private law, special hidden rules for some people. This privilege is what we saw in the bank bailouts. Even the word privilege is under attack now in the USA with its meaning being perverted into an anti white and male agenda, while simultaneously reducing those groups rights in law. The bankster crisis of 2008-present was forged through two separate processes. Firstly the relaxation of banking regulation and freedom from the government with banksters claiming Randian ideals because it suited their agenda. Secondly was the switch to demanding privilege and government protection just like corrupt communist organs of the state. All of this shows not a Randian idealogy, but ‘bait and switch’ opportunism and utter disrespect for any ideology or concept of law.
But this is the world we inherit once we have abandoned logic and reason. So welcome to the world of the absurd, you may have noticed we have a certain focus on the absurd here.
While Zizek is correct in pointing out the obvious that the ordinary person is now being forced to support the banksters fraud and folly. Zizek fails to recognize that the state is enforcing the that wealth transfer, just like how in Marxist-communist nations the state routinely propped up inefficient industries (and their corrupt leadership) and the ordinary people’s expense. So ultimately what Zizek has done is construct a strawman and then knock it down.
Zizek lastly mentioned the federal shut down which was really a show of state power, some privately owned and operated nature parks were shut down by the government. Why would the government shut down a private business because the government was unable to control its spending? A show of tyranny, bow down to us and give us more money or else. Logic and reason had gone out the window. Zizek absolutely fails to recognize the tyranny of the state in the bank bailouts, even thought its the most significant factor in continuing the debacle. Another strawman attack while avoiding criticizing state tyranny.
While many left wing commentators cite Zizek ( the latest Marxist doyen) they fail to critically analyze the obvious holes in his logic.
Of course Marxist commentators will always fail to mention the role of central banking to Marxism, and this was the exact cause of the 2008 sub prime crisis, the creation of money that does not have real value. Central banking is the same as the idiom ” (don’t) count your chickens before they have hatched” central banking back systems take this to the next level and “sell your chickens before they have hatched”. This then made a market for hypothetical chicken certificates which ran ‘red hot’, until one man said can I have 3 actual chickens, it was soon discovered that no chickens had hatched and all the certificates were worthless.
This brings us back to Zizek himself, because the premises of Marxism-communism are flawed, anything that comes out of it is equally worthless and dangerous if relied upon.
the Marxist-communist political-economic system does not work, anywhere it is implemented it is doomed to a brutal oppressive failure. Marxists throw all of those failures into a memory hole and simply pretend they don’t exist. I have even had radical communist try to tell me that the Soviet Union wasn’t communist and communism had never been tried before. Other communists will give the magical cure promise whereby they claim once the whole world is ( marxist/islamic/feminist/insert ideology here) all problems will be solved and utopia will exist. Clearly this ‘give me the whole world and ill fix it’ approach is wildly narcissistic, delusional, akin to magical thinking and contradicted by looking at the given ideology already operating at a smaller scale.
So in the end Zizek has a Yugoslavia size memory hole, and its almost big enough to hide all the other inconvenient facts which ruin his arguments. It’s all mental masturbation a distraction and a waste of time.
Reality ruining your argument? Zizek says just claim reality doesn’t exist!
And so on..
