Following her second year, she gained a job as a summer associate with the prominent New York law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.[59] By her own later evaluation, her performance there was lacking.[60] She did not receive an offer for a full-time position, an experience that she later described as a "kick in the teeth" and one that would bother her for years.[59][60] In her third year, she filed a formal complaint against the established Washington, D.C., law firm of Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge for suggesting during a recruiting dinner that she was at Yale only via affirmative action.[30][42] Sotomayor refused to be interviewed by the firm further and filed her complaint with a facultyĖstudent tribunal, which ruled in her favor.[42][44] Her action triggered a campus-wide debate,[57] and news of the firm's subsequent December 1978 apology made the Washington Post.[54]

>> The point again is, that you canít run a tight, cohesive ruling class with white men. They donít need to be loyal. Theyíll do ok anyway. A much easier way to run an obedient, loyal party is to recruit everyone else. Women. Blacks. Gays. Muslims. Transexuals. Pedophiles. Those people may be very high performers individually, but in a natural society ruled by its core of high performers, i.e. a white patriarchy, they wouldnít have very high status. So if you promise them high status for being loyal to you; you bet theyíre gonna join your team. They have much to gain, little to lose. The Coalition of the Fringes, Sailer calls it. Itís worse than that really. Itís the coalition of everyone who would lose status the better society were run. Itís the coalition of the bad. Literal Kakistocracy.

Thereís a reason why thereís so many evil fat women in government. Where else would they be if government didnít want them? They have nothing going on for them, except their membership in the Democratic party machine. The party gives them all they have, the same way the Communist party had given everything to that average peasant kid who became a middling bureaucrat in Moscow. And donít even get me started with hostile Muslims or Transexuals. Those people used to be expelled or taken into asylums, pre-1960. Which is why American Progressivism likes them so much. The little these people have depends completely on the Leftís patronage. Thereís a devilís bargain there: the more naturally repulsive someone else, the more valuable it is as a party member, as its loyalty will be all the stronger. This is of course whatís behind Larry Austerís First Law of minority relations: the worse a group behaves, the more the Left likes it. <<

spandrell apes yarvin here; i really don't like all these alt-right people taking terms like marxism and leninism and putting "biological" in front of them and pretending that they mean something new---biological progressivism is one thing, right? like it or not, the progressive belief system---the levelling, the dissenting, "my brother before me", whatever---is inimical to the White (Northern Euro, really) experience. i'm okay with that terminology, as long as it's used sparsely. it actually does describe some kind of empathy-gone-wrong freak biochemical (probably) reaction. but you couldn't convince me that "biological marxism" is anything but the alt-right equivalent of leftist science-ism.

spandrell has good points there, but this sort of thing is on the rise and it IRKS me every time i see it. in an odd sense, suggesting that marxism-leninism could have anything but artificial origins is almost a compliment to it---it needs to stop, there's nothing organic about the doctrine

i think his hypothesis is reasonable and i agree with it. human civilization is an eternal struggle of the good/productive people versus the bad/non-productive people. the latter category of people tend to band together in order to extract wealth from the former

i think he's trying to separate "biological marxism" from the on-paper philosophy of marxism because marxism as a philosophy holds that bad/unproductive people are bad/unproductive because of environmental factors, while the author's point is that they are bad/unproductive because they were born bad and unproductive, and that their behavior reflects this

so you'd agree that it should be considered a separate concept then? we agree otherwise

basically what i'm whining about is a semantic issue, not a huge deal---but if we're going for Absolute Correctness then it should have a separate term that isn't evocative of science-ism

also:

"because marxism as a philosophy holds that bad/unproductive people are bad/unproductive because of environmental factors, while the author's point is that they are bad/unproductive because they were born bad and unproductive, and that their behavior reflects this"

TBF "born bad and unproductive" would be considered an environmental factor as well (ofc, the marxists wouldn't announce this belief publicly until AFTER they take power :p ), but yeah

i don't consider his "biological leninism" to be a separate concept from regular marxism. but i can see how a marxist True Believer would consider them separate. to a marxist believer, someone being socioeconomically marginalized is a separate thing from someone just being an undesirable by nature, even though a reasonable person like myself correctly IDs those people as being one and the same

i suspect that the author of the above article harbors some "leftist" beliefs and values himself, like most white westerners, and that's why he tries to create a separate category for his "biological leninism" to differentiate between the Good Undesirables and Bad Undesirables (in his mind)

good points in your second paragraph.

i'll think about how to restate my complaint, it's not super clear looking back

re: "someone being socioeconomically marginalized is a separate thing from someone just being an undesirable by nature, even though a reasonable person like myself correctly IDs those people as being one and the same"

there are exceptions---it's hard to look the US Scots-Irish for example and really blame them for their poverty---those communities really are just wracked by misfortune after (((misfortune))). i think big tent white nationalism has a few ideological flaws, but while we're still "there" we need to remember to have sympathy for our White brethren who 1. share enough of our culture to not impact our QoL negatively and 2. provide a valuable resource in the form of reserves of human capital.

the marxist starts off with " to a marxist believer, someone being socioeconomically marginalized is a separate thing from someone just being an undesirable by nature," by default, and stays true to his doctrine regardless of the circumstances, even when all objective data available points to something otherwise (except, again, until they're in power---then it all goes out the window). for dialectical purposes, if nothing else, we should take the opposite you describe by default, right? but at the same time radical, unnatural empathy is a critical part of the Western soul---we should be more than ready to make exceptions for our brethren when we're economically able. it's one of the things that set us apart from the savages, and so many beautiful western traditions are steeped in it
