nigger fuck right off.

With regards to the above image, yeh there are probably jews in the media. So what, there are also large amounts of whites in the media, more so than blacks.

What you are pulling is SJW shit "why is x group more/less represented in x industry" well nigger, the answer is capitalism.

In the case of jews, it is specifically their position in history as the sneaky ones who got kicked out that put them in this position.

muh good christian kings wanted ways around the fact they wanted to be usurers but the bible wouldnt let them, so they had jews do the dirty work for them, jews being in banking a lot is the result.

However, there are also chinese, japense, krygytani, mestizo and lots and lots of white bankers.

The problem is banks, which exist independently of race, the problem is the media, which exists independently of race.

You have to be a special kind of autistic retard to think the connection is anything but a historical left over.

are whites banned from being in media? No. Have they ever been? No.

Genuine question I think everyone should ask themselves.

honestly western leftists are too sperged out and individualized to ever coalesce as a relevant political force, everyone is focused on cultivating their very own very special political identity and discussing retarded ideological bullshit with each other to even fight back against the right.

Even here and in the other board most of you faggots are nothing but quasi-reformed /pol/yps who can't spend 5 minutes without arguing about whether or not you should kill all trannies/blacks/browns because for some retarded reason or another you cannot fathom existing at the same time or place than someone who is vaguely different than you. Hell there's even a chunk of you who won't believe anything about climate change until you're dying from heatstroke, freezing to death, starving or drowned within a decade or two.

Out there everyone is mostly just backwards liberals and traditionalists who have most definitely lost their minds, normies who literally can't see shit beyond what's in front of them and are unable to think about anything but basic normie shit and fringe bullshit like anti vaxxers.

Is society just too far gone to ever recover? even if we somehow magically manage not to get sent back to the stone age by climate catastrophe in the next few decades and we actually manage to get a revolution off the ground, is there anything still worth saving?

Yes I can elaborate on that. The early Roman empire (pre 200) took the spoils of the places it conquered and used it for their own sake. They adopted knowledge from Greeks and appropriated a lot of culture into their dominant structure.

I believe the religious conflicts that took place within cities such as for example Alexandria (Christians and Jews) in late antiquity give a good idea when a certain religion can't take over another. The plus side of culture is that it's very flexible and open to appropriate or change for better (or worse). But religion doesn't have this bend, I think mistakes of past will be repeated when culture started mattering less and religion more in society.

The reason I said life is quite good right now is that I was comparing it to 19th century. Which was a very patriarchal society, women needed to marry to even stand a chance if they didn't they were screwed. Their only chance at upward mobility was somehow marrying upward. That's ignoring the order in society which was ruled by nobility in early modernity (pre 1800's) and later by powerful merchants. The common pleb was working an agricultural shitjob, certainly they weren't artisans. The living conditions usually meant clamping multiple families into a single house. Sometimes they were housed under the roof of a boss they worked for.

If you compare modern standards to 19th century or even early 20th century I feel like we're much further as a society. Though it's mostly attributable due to increased efficiency of agricultural production (-> high urbanization in west), increased efficiency of processes and construction, improved transportation of products and increased efficiency in gathering resources.

Our technological ability will keep improving especially in the data age where journals and knowledge is so accessible compared to the past. Sure the capitalist system is sick, but almost any sick system can survive when there has been a constant stream of improvements to life from the technological side. It's certainly keeping people comfortable.

>“We will no longer grant exemptions,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in announcing that current sanctions waivers to the five nations would expire on May 2, clearing the way for American economic penalties against all companies or financial institutions that continue to take part in transactions linked to buying Iranian oil.

>By withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, and phasing in sanctions, the Trump administration has sought to cripple the Iranian government and weaken the power of its ruling clerics. Mr. Pompeo said Iran has earned about $50 billion annually from oil sales, accounting for as much as 40 percent of government revenues.

This is some serious shit. In 2017, trade between the EU and Iran was about 21 billion Euros. Iran is a huge trading partner with the EU. If the US is serious about this, this could have severe ramifications for US-EU relations. Not to mention the affects this could have on the global economy, as well as the horrific consequences that this will have for the Iranian people.

What’s the landlord crisis.


 No.2872151

>>2872125

when the mortgage on the value of the house (or as it's london, the flats) is greater than the market value of the house, the lending bank doesn't have adequate security for their loan. Raising systemic risk.

If this happens on a large scale it could cause a price shock as lenders don't want to lend now on an asset that is likely to fall in value, so no-one'll buy the house at a value high enough for the landlord to pay off the mortgage without the landlord having to find money from elsewhere.

No only this; >>2872151 but in short back in like 2013 landlords got load of mortgage deductions on their taxes which were lifted in 2016 but wasn't clocked by the industry. So now their incomes are drastically dropping and they will want to sell-off en-masse.

>The rate of interest reaches its peak during crises, when money is borrowed at any cost to meet payments. Since a rise in interest implies a fall in the price of securities, this simultaneously offers a fine opportunity to people with available money-capital, to acquire at ridiculously low prices such interest-bearing securities as must, in the course of things, at least regain their average price as soon as the rate of interest falls again.[5]

Because they are literally not thicc enough. You need big massive fuck-off trees that were either natural ones that had stood for 100s of years, or were grown in specific forests for the purposes of large architecture and later ship building. The reason they don't exist anymore is that the need for them in architecture faded in the renaissance (as architecture moved towards geometrical support as opposed to pure mechanical support) and ship-making was moved to the Americas (the forrests beyond the King George line were in-part kept Native American because they wanted to stop settled farming the land because the wood was used for ship masts).

Why has there not been a successful proto-communist state?

It seems there have been a lot of thinkers and movements in the past that could be somewhat considered leftist by today's standards throughout all of history. You had people like Pythagoras, Mazdak, Epictetus and Jesus back in ancient times. In feudal days peasant wars were quite common and strong, like the ones in England and Germany. Russian empire faced many of such rebellions (Pugachev's being the best remembered) up until serfdom was abolished. And of course you had pirates with their incredibly anarchistic way of life. Yet there never was a successful state out of any of this. Why? The humanistic core values of socialism and communism seem pretty compatible with any time period, so why is only after the industrial that we saw them go mainstream (well, more mainstream than before at least)?

I think socialism is a consequence of technologies developed in the early modern era.

As a child, you are taught that the middle ages were ruled by kings and queens. The fact of the matter is the centralised state had very little control over its territory. Local warlords (aka knights) had more influence than kings and queens.

It was only with the development of communication and navigation technologies in the early modern era could the centralised state emerge with control over its territories. So rulers from far away could subjugate others. Prior to then, the only way your family could be subjugated is by your local warlord.

When early socialists like the Levellers and Diggers emerged, distant rulers had subjugated them. So in their mind, the structure of the state could be:

1. Subjugation to a distant ruler

Distant rulers had pushed their limits with the masses, so they were unpopular.

2. Subjugation to a local warlord

Unlike the middle ages, there were no local warlords. Distant rulers, using new technologies, had eliminated local warlords.

3. Subjugation to no ruler

…and thus socialism was born.

In the middle ages, the options were 2 and 3. So why did 3 never happen in the middle ages?

It comes back to the distant ruler eliminating all local warlords. Let's say you kill your local warlord. The neighbouring warlord then fills the power vacuum. The first time there are no warlords, or neighbouring warlords to fill the power vacuum, was when the centralised state developed the technologies to eliminate them.

You can't fathom how a word means something different than what it literally says? Better get checked for autism. Could help explain why you never get laid. Don't worry, there's therapy for it. Things will get better!

>are only physiologically capable of being aroused by alpha chads

Interesting take but it isn't that bad. Women aren't physiologically incapable of being aroused by femboys, they just prefer chads. Also they end up hooking up with them because they're more assertive.

They do hate themselves for getting involved with shitbags though. 100% true.
