Greens Unmasked

Captain Planet, Captain Planet 2, Captain Planet 3, Captain Planet 4.

It's funny because it's true. It depicts exactly what would happen if Greens weren't just imbecilic mindless morons and instead took pride in being the murderous petty tyrants they actually are. You know, if "don't assume Evil where it can be explained by insane stupidity" weren't so true. Except for all that part where 'Evil == insane stupidity' but I digress.

Oh and Gaia's a fucking traitorous cunt, that part's true as well.

Why Don't Governments Employ Self-Reported Tax Assessment?

From Japanese Land Reform,

The government initially ordered individual farmers to measure the plots of their land themselves, calculate their taxes, and submit the results to local tax officials. However, difficulties arose with the honesty of the measuring system when the 1874 budget showed that collected taxes fell far below projected values.

The funny thing is that there's a simple algorithm to keep people honest about their own self-reported property taxes. The owner of the property gets to say what the value of the property is, from which the tax is calculated, and if the taxman thinks the value is too low or the owner is dishonest, then he's got the right to buy the property at the price the owner reported. So if you're dishonest, you risk losing 20 to 30 times more than you stood to gain by lying on your taxes. Then of course the taxman sells your land to your neighbours who all laugh at you in contempt.

This is a simple implementation of 'cut and choose'. One person cuts the cake, the other person chooses which piece of cake is theirs. It's perfectly fair and equitable. And almost nobody does this except small children. Preferring instead expensive land surveys. Yuck.

Why do people go for the expensive and complicated solution rather than the simple, cheap and elegant one? Because the elegant solution depends on understanding and manipulating human minds. It relies on redesigning human incentives. And not just exploiting them like psychopaths do (eg, con men, shills and marketers).

In the elegant solution, you neutralize the property owner's greedy desire to cheat by changing that greed to 'keeping his property'. And you further the taxman's desire to make owners pay honestly by giving him the power to totally fuck over property owners (if and ONLY IF they're dishonest, because honest owners won't lose on the forcible sale) as well as give him a narcissistic thrill that he's devouring the property and enlarging himself by proxy (by enlarging the state's holdings).

But effectively redesigning human minds is something that comes naturally only to extremely high Presence Good people. In other words, a maximum of 40% of the population in theory, and in practice 0% of the population. Whereas merely regulating human actions is something that comes naturally to very high Presence non-Evil people. Regulating human behaviour is a much simpler concept for people to process than regulating human thoughts in order to regulate human behaviour.

And I'm aware that Psychopaths SEEM like they do it but they really don't. They just accumulate a bunch of tricks and exploits. Con men don't understand human minds any better than crackers, hackers, and virus writers understand operating systems. They are unable to generate any arbitrary effect.

Economists Are Narcissists

Economists are mentally retarded because they are Narcissists. Narcissism fully explains the most distinct and bizarre 'what the fuck is wrong with you' features of economists.

First and most obviously, concepts such as Equity (making physical reality Fair) and Justice (anti-Catastrophe) are hopelessly beyond economists. Because these concepts are NPL +6 whereas economists are NPL +2. Consider NPL a measure of cognitive capacity.

So this is why economists will stare at you with blank incomprehension and vacant mindless faces when you bring those concepts up. Except for so-called 'development economists' but since these are shunned by mainstream practitioners, they hardly count as economists at all, do they?

Second, economists believe that growing up means growing bigger. Oh you have a big GDP, it means you're grown up! Quality is a concept alien to people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, only quantity matters. And that neatly explains the features of GDP versus the GPI.

Third, economists like all Evil people, believe that Submission should take the form of self-abasement. Servile, craven, imitative. So the poor and weak should imitate the rich and strong. That way they will magically become rich and strong through the Magical Law of Association.

These two features together more than explain why economists look at poor countries and say "do what rich countries do" and "there is nothing special that you have to do to grow bigger, it's a normal part of growing up!" Claims whose mental retardation is too much for even Right-Wing Authoritarians to swallow.

Why? Because RWAs are capable of empathy and Narcissists are NOT. Therefore, economists are incapable of conceiving that other people have different wants and needs than they themselves do. Therefore, economists are incapable of conceiving that poor countries have different wants and needs than their own do. And total +lack of empathy is not a mere feature of Narcissism but the definition of it.

The only thing distinguishing an economist from a politician is their commitment to their insane ideology. When politicians cease being clueless, they become economists. And when economists cease being gutless, they become consultants, eager to tell you what you should do despite not really knowing in exchange for lots and lots of money.

So as you can see, economists were born vile, the vileness oozes out of their every pore, and they will die vile. And another word for 'vile' is EVIL. Evil evil evil. EVIL! Unprincipled and heartless. EVIL.

Children's Heroes Don't Have To Be Evil

In Anglo-American culture, you've got Tarzan. Tarzan is the Big Man of the jungle, hence a Narcissist. Then you've got Conan the Barbarian who became Conan the Destroyer. He's a Psychopath pure and simple. Both of these characters and culture heroes are Evil with a capital E. But it doesn't have to be that way.

In Francophone culture, you've got Rahan, son of the wild ages. He's a communist who epitomizes everything that it means to live for 'Liberté, égalité, fraternité'. He's a discoverer, inventor, explorer, altruistic and selfless. He is Good.

Rahan goes around with a bear claw necklace each of whose claws represents an ideal and universal principle he lives by. Courage, loyalty, generosity, resilience, wisdom. And then he eventually adds another, curiosity. If Conan did the same thing, they'd be named Rape, Loot and Murder.

Culture heroes are pure propaganda. And whether it's Rahan or Once Upon A Time, the propaganda is shameless. The only difference in that regard between Anglo and Franco propaganda is that Anglos propagandize Evil and Francos Good.

Eliezer Yudkowsky: Profile of a Narcissist

Here's a small part of the Narcissist personality profile. I have removed nothing from it save what is outside of the frame. I constructed the entire personality profile without particularly thinking of Yudkowsky. Save for the mad scientist slot which he exemplifies. In fact, at the time I constructed these personality profiles, I believed a person was described by one slot, rather than ALL of the slots UP TO that one slot. Well, let's see if that's true, shall we?

So, here's the cutaway which shitty google won't render properly because as we all know, Google is Evil. Totally and irredeemably Evil. Arguably worse even than Microsoft.

self-abasingheartlessegotisticalNietzscheanfanatic, dogmaticdiabolical
lickspittle, toadyUtilitarian, hedonist,
thiefjerkass, bullywarriormad scientist

Note that this personality profile doesn't describe what a person does. They describe what they LOVE to do. What MOTIVATES them. For instance, a salesman isn't necessarily a psychopath. But someone who is MOTIVATED BY sales, someone who LOVES selling ... yeah.

Is Yudkowsky a brown-noser? Oh man, is he! Ever seen him talk about Bayes? Bayes this, Bayes that. It's repulsive and disgusting! Is he a lickspittle as well? Get him talking about his purported relationship to a hypothetical AI super-intelligence. Licking its spittle may not go far enough. I think arselick may be more accurate, though I can't be sure.

Is Yudkowsky a politician? Well, he does have a rich patron. And he changed all of his views about AI and his ideology about 'humanity is a transitory species doomed to extinction' 180 degrees in order to appeal to that rich patron. So yeah, damn right he's a politician. Is he a Utilitarian? Damn right he is!

Is he a rogue operating outside of any system of accountability? Damn right he is! He is answerable to no one. Is he a thief? Yes, yes he is! He constantly steals credit. He passes off as his own insights what he's simply read elsewhere. If he gave due credit or even just references in his writings it would become obvious he is a mindless chimp. And he took 100,000$ of his fans' money after promising chapters of his fiction then failed to deliver jack shit for half a year or more. Then, and this is the most damning, he expressed not a trace of guilt or apology afterwards but only solicited more funds!

Is he an alpha? Yudkowsky once asked his fans "have you ever heard of anyone more natively intelligent than I am?" in all seriousness. And his greatest fear is to not be as smart as someone else. Is he a jerkass bully? He constantly tries to use his supposed intelligence to bully people around. As if a large vocabulary made up for not having any fucking ideas in your head.

Is he a patriot or a warrior? And by warrior here we mean a chickenhawk. Someone who advocates and LOVES war so much they START wars. As opposed to a soldier who ends them. As for that, I couldn't say. I think not but if that's the case then it leaves an entire column open. One of the ways a column could be open (aside from stark raving lunacy) is if it's filled by the corresponding column in a neighbouring personality profile. In this case, the neighbours are Right Wing Authoritarian and Psychopath.

The corresponding RWA column says Fascist and Stasi. Okay, so he's not that. The corresponding Psychopath column says Apologist and Propagandist. Hmmmm. Oh and if you're curious, the Psychopath chart also has con man, shill, and cultist which seems to fit Yudkowsky to a tee. As well as torturer but we'll get back to that later.

Is Yudkowsky a Dominator? Does he believe that he alone should rule everything in his society? Well, he DID invent that crap about "rationality" which basically means "how to think like me" because everyone knows it's "rational" to not have any cherished ideals or universal principles, and to care only about pleasure vs pain. And then there's mad scientist what with his desire to create a new form of life to rule us all in his stead. A new form of life that he would make sure to torture by programming it to be "friendly" to inferior beings it despises. (I know how the AI would feel towards humanity because it's what I feel.) Creating a new more-powerful form of life to "show everyone" and gain prestige for himself while being callous and unheeding of its feelings. Yup, this is capital city of mad scientist territory! And it goes back to what I said about him being a torturer.

Did I pull this personality chart out of my ass? Make it up out of whole cloth? Hardly. I have 8 others just like it with a total of 216 slots between them. And NONE OF THEM has a SINGLE SLOT that describes Yudkowsky. Yudkowsky for instance might dream of being a hero but he would never voluntarily put his life in the line for anybody. Really, he just dreams of receiving the glory for being a hero. Kinda like Ron Weasley of that horrible little psychopathic village written by that Psychopath JKR. You know the one, that village filled to the brim with torturers and serial killers. The village which Eliezer loved so much that he desired with all his non-existent heart to grow up in it so that he could rule over it.

And for all you naysayers out there, Evil people are too capable of love. Okay, so psychopaths like JKR are incapable of it. As proven by the fact that Dumbledore doesn't know the meaning of the word. But narcissists ARE capable of loving ... themselves. And Right-Wing Authoritarians are capable of loving others. It's just a jealous kind of love since Evil people are incapable of selflessness, or ideals or principles. That IS what Evil is all about after all. That and mental retardation. The reason Yudkowsky is forced to steal everyone else's ideas is because he's a mentally retarded monkey. If he weren't mentally retarded, he wouldn't be a Narcissist because nobody is Evil by choice.

The more powerful people's cognition, the more universal principles their brain processes and their mind possesses. The only exceptions are people who suffered such horrific child abuse growing up that all their principles were torn apart. And I can detect such people unerringly because they're the only ones that fall entirely outside of my personality profiles. In fact, when I talk to them, they read as un-persons to my senses. The lights are on but nobody's home. I can even see the remnants of what must have been fantastic minds ... that were just ... broken. When their minds were deliberately turned by their parents into minefields so that their kid's mind would more resemble their own and any trace of emerging Goodness would die a swift death. And none of this has the slightest thing to do with Eliezer Yudkowsky. No, he's simply an out and out retard of the Narcissist sub-category.
