"What If Your Parents Decided Not to Have Children?"

In a language-warning rant I debunk the argument "What If Your Parents Decided Not to Have Children" which is also the same argument as "What If YOur Mom Decided to Have An Abortion?"


Idiocracy - Another Reason Not to Breed

I love how universities are actually unintentionally lowering IQ's.

The Common Thread Between Elliot Rodger and ISIS

A superficial survey of the masses murdering Elliot Rodger and the mass murdering ISIS may only draw one, maybe two common threads.  They're both murderers and they're both crazy.  After coming to this conclusion most people whilst sipping on their $7 cup of lattes in the unaffected suburbs will then continue on their life, more concerned with whether they should pick up a copy of People magazine to catch up on all the pointless Hollywood gossip. 

However, as my brain is wont to do, it wanders and thinks during my roadtrips, adventures and hikes, coming up with epiphanies that people stuck in cubicles and rush hour never have the opportunity to.  And my latest great western road trip was no different as I discovered the key thing Elliot Rodger and ISIS have in common (heading south bound on 79 out of Rapid City no less).  And if we take the time to identify it, think it through, we can prevent the likes of Rodger's rampage and ISIS's, even radical muslims thirst for blood.

Understand the most powerful force in the universe is not gravity, it's not electromagnetic radiation, and it's not nuclear power.

It's the human male.

Yes, yes, I know physicists will disagree as to the pure mathematical energy that can be measured, but in terms of what has come under control, managed, and been directed towards accomplishing the most amount of good it is not the non-sentient energies that be in the universe, but rather the human male.

It is without a doubt that nearly everything on the planet has been built by men.  Civilization, math, engineering, capitalism, chemistry, literature, surgery, vaccines, nuclear power, electronic, communications, flight, space travel, you name it, men have built it.  Matter of fact men are so energetic they've managed to master and control all the powers of the universe, bending them to our benefit and will, forever increasing the standards of living and life expectancies for all.  This makes men not only the most interesting creature on the planet, but the nucleus and bedrock of society.

Where this limitless energy comes from is very simple - women.  Men are programmed to want, desire and procreate with women.  Many men also want to see their genetics cast out into the future in the form of children.  Ergo a loving, beautiful, and loyal wife along with loving children are the batteries that power these amazing machines of innovation and progress. 

But wives and children also serve a very vital role when it comes to the issue of men and their energy.  One that puts their role in society on par with the importance of men - they channel men's energy.

Channel it to what?

Channel it to productive uses.

Without wives and children, mens energy has no ultimate point or purpose.  And sadly, just because a man does not have a wife or child does not mean that energy goes away.  It's still there, it just now has nowhere to be invested in nor a purpose to be invested wisely.  And it is here where the dangerous side of men lies.

Imagine, if you will, a single man as if he were the plutonium used in the Fat Man atom bomb.  This 6.2 kilograms of plutonium had 21 kilotons of potential energy.  Also know that that energy MUST be expended.  The man is going to burn that energy one way or another over the course of his life.  So what is the best way to expend it?

Well, like nuclear power it can be expended in a very helpful way...

or a VERY destructive way.

The helpful way would be like a nuclear reactor providing nearly limitless energy and power to cities and society.  It can heat homes, power industries, light the night and make life incredibly better for all of us.

Or it can be used to destroy and lay waste to society.  Level cities, kill millions, wage war and end human life on this planet.  

And now you see the importance of having women and family in life, as well as the commonality between Elliot Rodger and ISIS.

Without going into a great and detailed psycho-family analysis of the two, both Elliot and ISIS lacked the guidance, familial structure, and incentive to properly and productively channel their energy.  The guidance coming from fathers who were either effectively absent (in Elliot's case) or dead/brainwashed by Islam (in ISIS members' case), never existed.  Thus, the PRIMARY individual in their lives that would have taught them about how to go about getting a wife and children (their dads) were either not there or so impaired by a religious ideology things like "game" "wooing" and "charm" were never conveyed to their sons.  Without these tools the Rodgers and ISIS's of the world were unable to attract women, denying them wives and families, thus denying purpose and agency to their lives.  Worse still, with no children or loved ones in their lives, they had no incentive to be good stewards of the future, and thus no incentive to channel their energies productively.

Naturally, many of you will point out that just because a man does not have a point or purpose in life, does not mean he will use his excess energy for evil.  Why not channel them for good?  Why do you so pessimistically assume men will default towards destruction and evil? And while that is certainly true and there are many examples of philanthropists and altruists abound, the sad truth is that human psychology will typically default towards ego and laziness.  And this is where the Destruction Principle and Crusaderism come into play. 

Ever so abbreviating both, understand the human mind wants to belong to something and have SOME KIND of value.  But if either through society, a recession, or a lack of interest from women, etc., no such opportunities to belong to something good and productive exist (a career, a family, etc.), people will go and create it out of whole cloth.  Thus "crusades" that claim to be "helping" society, that are in reality nothing more than havens for worthless, talentless people to give themselves some kind of "faux" meaning or purpose in life:

Going green/Environmentalism
PETA
Born again Christians
African aid/mission trips
Feminism
Anti-fracking/Keystone pipeline
Etc.,

Where these "crusades" become particularly evil is on two accounts.  One, participants in these crusades do NOT care about society as much as they do themselves.  They don't care about the whales, they don't care about "the poor," they are doing it first and foremost for their ego.  And whether or not their crusades and their demands actually hurt society (by increasing poverty, lowering unemployment, confiscating other people's money, etc) does not matter to them, because making society suffer (either through higher taxes or lower future performance) is less important than making their egos feel good.

Two, in pursuing crusades that are not based in reality, but rather ego-masturbation, they are diametrically put against reality.  This means any success society has had in the past 5,000 years by adhering to reality has to be criminalized and villainized, and ultimately destroyed by these people.  Capitalism, freedom, nuclear families, individualism, success, excellence, men, patriarchy, etc. any pillar of success is one that needs to be torn down.  Thus, the majority of "successes" and "accomplishments" these type of people point to on their resume is NOT one of "building something" or "creation," but rather destroying something, stopping something, or preventing something.

Now, this mental disease of The Destruction Principle and Crusaderism is nothing "too" dangerous on its own.  Wimpy effeminate men will join hairy armpitted women on a whole host of whinny and complaining campaigns, voting for socialism, economic justice and whatnot as they join OWS and protest in cardboard boxes.  The worst outcome is they vote for socialism and slowly destroy the underlying economic infrastructure of society.

However you add The Destruction Principle and Crusaderism to men who still have testosterone and combine it with a lack of purpose and agency, and you now have the most dangerous and volatile cocktail for young men.  And with nowhere else to go, and no productive use for their energies, these men will not lash out in a form of amazing production and charity, but rather death, mayhem, destruction and terror all in a self-aggrandizing way.  Thus your Elliot Rodgers, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, James Holmes, Tsarnaev brothers, etc.

The solution is one that modern day western civilization is not willing to accept today.  We need to put men at the center of society, ensuring they are raised right to ensure their energies are used for good and not evil.  This unfortunately means making fathers head of the household and championing the nuclear family as the bedrock of civilization.  It also means women (if they wish to have a family) will have to actually be wives and mothers first and foremost instead of temporary incubators for human children that are to be outsourced to the state for raising so she can get back to her career as a "non-profit marketing director."

Until that time the most powerful force in the universe will continue to go increasingly unchecked and unhoned to the risk and detriment of the world.

The Clarey Podcast Now on iTunes

Our Eastern European IT Genius in the Field has also managed to get The Clarey Podcast on iTunes for all you communists...errr....ummmm..."Apple users."

Next step will be to get on Stitcher, which I have no clue what it is or why I'm trying to get on it, but the kids nowadays say it's all the rage.

If there are any problems downloading or accessing the podcasts please let me know.

Many thanks,

Cappy

Communism + Super Fastfoward = Capitalism

The thing that stuck out most to me in this video is how the director HAD to fast forward the video to make the city look like it was bustling.  But if you were to play it at normal speed, you'd notice the SEVERE and DRAMATIC lack of human (and therefore) economic activity in the country.

The ONLY thing of economic noteworthiness was the DHL truck which I was amazed to see in operation.  The rest, if you can slow it down to normal real life speed, is actually depressing.

Fun Times Guarding Saudi Princes

I can't think of a more deserving group of people than Saudi princes to get robbed for a quarter million.  However, this story made me realize something.

Most of those Saudi royalty people are grade A, arrogant, aloof, assholes.  They believe you are inferior to them and they have absolutely no appreciation for their wealth, their luck and their fortune.  They also are more than willing to play mind games, using Islam as a means to make your job of protecting them harder just for entertainment:

No men guards can watch over our women
Do not look at our women
No booze on the floor we stay on, even if it's other people that have nothing to do with our party
We need Muslim compliant food, fetch us some.
Etc.

Thus, while at the time I thought it was pretty cool to be providing security from one of the Saudi princes, in truth I was just putting myself in danger for a professional hit like this.  No job, no money, and certainly no Saudi royalty is worth being in harm's way. 

So for any young men out there across the world who are approached with the opportunity to play security guard to a Saudi prince, yes the pay might be good, but you're likely putting yourself in a situation where you might have to fire a gun (and suffer the legal consequences) of protecting what amounts to nothing more than one of the biggest douches in the world.

Let the spoiled brat Saudi princes protect themselves.

Celibate Boyfriend = Celebate Husband

It's always fun to watch Christian women date.

Book Review - The Great Deformation

The Great Deformation, by David Stockman of Reagan admin fame, is a detailed and precise account of how (among other things) socialism, central banking, monetary policy, and corruption in the financial service sector has so warped and distorted the pricing mechanism of the financial markets that it has ultimately impaired and crippled the free market from functioning properly.  Lacking this VITAL economic tool, the economy has since mal-invested in many bubbles resulting in a stagnation of our economy and no real economic growth, as well as no real hope for the future.

Ironically, those two lengthy sentences also epitomize the book because it is both lengthy and (unless you're an economist) doesn't make a lot of sense to the average person - thus the tragic and paradoxical nature of this otherwise excellent book.

There is absolutely NO DOUBT as to the quality, precision and workmanship Mr. Stockman put into this book.  His ability to explain precisely what was going on, who was responsible for it (the financial crisis), as well as his masterful use of the English language to explain it, is unrivaled.  The problem is that this brilliant piece of work has no obvious audience.

If you are an average person trying to understand the financial problems of the US and western civilization in general, this IS the book for you to read.  The problem is that it's written at such a high level of "economicness" you won't understand half of it and would have to commit to further educating yourself about economics that it would take a SOLID two months of DEDICATED self-education in the field.

Ironically, if you ARE educated in the field, and managed to be one of the few economists with his head out of his ass and Keynes' dick out of your mouth, you will certainly understand it, but it will be nothing new to you.  Mayhaps some details or observations you didn't know about (there are plenty in the book), but again, if you have the slightest bit of intellectual honesty and a drop of Austrian economic blood in your veins you will be fully aware of Mr. Stockman's points and positions.

Thus the tragedy about Mr. Stockman's book.

I would love to recommend it to beginners in economics as it is the veritable bible and account of what caused our current financial woes.  But it would be speaking in tongues to them.

And I would strongly recommend it to my economic colleagues...it's just they already know what Mr. Stockman wrote.

The true value of this book is sadly what many of us do so on a day to day basis:

Writing for posterity. 

If there is a "primary" reason to own this book it is because it is a brilliant and detailed account and accord of what PRECISELY happened during the build up to, and the consequences of, the financial crisis and future crises that are about to happen.  It is not a novel to be consumed and then discussed at an intellectual light-weight "book club" in the suburbs sipping on $7 cup of Joe's at Starbucks pining when your sugar daddy husband is going to buy you another Range Rover, but rather a reference guide to consult when having serious discussions, and certainly policy issues if saner heads are ever elected into office.  In short, it is as if you took "50 Shades of Grey" and multiplied it by -1.

Not very exciting, but infinitely practical and helpful to society if they ever cared to give it two shits about it.

Thankfully, Mr. Stockman has a very good outline where, though titled eccentrically, chapters are labelled (more or less) categorically allowing you to consult topics specific to your interests/needs.  I would NOT recommend anybody read it cover to cover (which I did effectively while driving to Seattle and back via audio book), but instead purchase it and use it as a reference book for any point in time where discussion or debate requires an authoritative source as to the causes and consequences of the country's current finances.

You can find Mr. Stockman's book here and his other literary works here

The Epitome of Leftist Bias in Journalism

Every once in a while you get a photo or a picture that embodies EVERYTHING wrong with an entity, an ideology, a group, or a movement, etc.

This is one of those pictures which shows the:

ignorance
stupidity
bias
political agenda
crusaderism
and
narcissism

of modern day leftist journalists.

Thank you Ryan J. Reilly, you epitomize everything that's wrong with modern day journalism and ensure us bloggers are the real 4th Branch of Government.

Two 20 Something Western Crusaders Get Their Comeuppance

I love it when "multiculturalism" and "social Marxism" eat their own.

But you know, never listen to that stale, old, boring Euro-centric wisdom that managed to create everything good in this world.  No, no, go on your crusade so you feel good about yourself and how open-minded you are.

New Sponsor - Personal Comfort Bed

Howdy All,

The Cappy Cap empire keeps growing as we have a new sponsor - Personal Comfort Bed.

The Personal Comfort Bed is one of those high end, sleep number type beds that adjust for your personal sleeping preferences.  However, it's cheaper than most of those high-end air-adjusted mattresses.  It also has components that can be replaced which means it can last forever.

Me personally, I've slept on couches and futons for so long that the current bed I have right now seems like a luxury, but for those of you who perhaps have trouble sleeping or just want to pamper yourself for THE FULL THIRD of your life you sleep away, yes, absolutely, buy one of these things.



You can go here to look at what they have or call them at 888-694-4088. 

Tell them "The Captain Sent You."  You don't get anything off or a special, they just know I sent you.

Rural Revoltion

"Declaring a worthless major is simply shouting out to the world, 'I’m a parasite and have no intentions of working for a living. I want to do what I want to do and I want the rest of you to pay for it. I ultimately want to produce nothing society wants, but in return I demand other people slave away to make me MP3 players, computers, video games, as well as engineer hybrid cars and whatever else I want. I also want society to create some make-work job for me so my ego isn’t bruised and I can make-believe I’m a real-world-live adult too. And if you dare point out what I’m doing in the real world is nothing more than parasiting off of others, I’ll cowardly hide myself behind some altruistic crusade and accuse you of being a racist, a misogynist, or a hater of children.'"

Tasing Fat People at the Minnesota State Fair Episode

In this episode of The Clarey Podcast Aaron is in Seattle where he and his friend discuss;

Cappy's aggressive driving
Idiots who stand in line for 2 hours to get coffee at the original Starbucks
Ruining his reputation by helping a kid
Trying to remember the lyrics (and meaning) to the Frasier theme song while in Seattle

and

Cappy's dream of being airdropped into the Minnesota State fair armed with tasers where he goes on a tasing rampage

(You'll also note we've switched from Box.com to Podomatic.  The download button IS THERE on their online player, but it is not obvious.  I apologize in advance.  Swear to Christ these programmers do not think of user friendliness when laying out their web sites.  HOwever, this will allow for RSS feeds, iTunes and Stitcher radio in the near future)

When Robots Replaced Liberal Arts Majors

If you really want to be on the cutting edge of economic thought, the concept of robots making human labor obsolete is the place to be.

This does not really threaten people who are willing to expend the calories of energy to learn skills and trades that either cannot be replaced by robots or that are in the fields of developing, building, maintaining and programming said robots.

But if you're a talentless "liberal arts" major working as a barrista

or

An idiotic customer service worker in Seattle who thought the minimum wage of $15 was a great idea

you may want to rethink you're grand strategy of just "forcing" employers to pay you more when your lack of genuine skills can be automated at a fraction of the cost.

But, you know, hey, you go and "major in what your heart tells you" and see how well that poppycock strategy developed in the 50's works for you.  The rest of us will be preparing for the 2020's.

Why Most People Just Can't "Go Galt"

I was listening to The Black Brigade's latest podcast whilst hiking Trapper Peak.  And among their topics de jour was the recurring theme of "going Galt."  This particular instance however, was prompted by local radio show host Jason Lewis walking off the job claiming he had had enough and was no longer going to serve as a host to what is nothing more than the parasites of society.

They applauded his decision, as do I, but they then went onto ask the question, "Why don't more talk radio hosts" or "leaders" in the conservative/libertarian movement provide a how to, or actually go Galt themselves?  Matter of fact, why don't just 10% of conservatives, libertarians or as I like to call them "Real Americans" go Galt, crashing this entire corrupt system?

Well, lieutenants and economists, I already had the answer before I made it back to the trail head.

Understand that the number one thing preventing conservatives and libertarians from going Galt and "starving the beast" is that they are saddled with debt.  This may at first sound odd that conservatives and libertarians would have such finances, but consider the fact that most people incur debt when they are younger

which consequently means

made those decisions to incur debt when they were statistically likely to be more liberal

and you can see why even "savvy" conservative/libertarian types just can't "go Galt."

If you look at the decisions that result in life's major debts, they are typically made during their "dumbass 20 something leftists phase" ie - before one turns 30.

Student loans
Credit card/consumer spending
Car loans, and of course the biggest ball and chain of them all
Mortgages

This results in an irony, if not a fiscal tragedy, where future and theoretical "Galtists" who would love nothing more than to go Galt, can't, simply because they are saddled with too much debt FORCING them to remain in the work force till their debts are paid and their mortgage gone.  You add in marriage and children, and your average male "Galtist" can only wistfully pine about going Galt just as much as he can "buying a motorcycle and heading to Sturgis without permission."

The result is a phenomenon the Manosphere calls the "Wage Mule" or "Debt Slave."  Stupid decisions made in the past condemn the rest of your life to severely limited choices and potential, effectively ruining your life, and certainly making lofty, idealistic political maneuvers such as "going Galt" an impossibility.

There is however, good news.

While Gen X may have been the last generation to partially swallow the

"House
College
Wife
Kids"

propaganda, Gen Y/the Millenials didn't.  Additionally, a good percentage of Gen X also postponed marriage, or avoided it all together.  In other words, Americans, despite their horrendous stupidity, are actually starting to learn from their predecessors, and with the breaking of the social contract between men and women and default and unconscious "going Galt" is already occurring. 

Men just aren't proposing as much as they used to and if they do, they wait till they're well into their 30's to do so.  Also, unless you're an illegal immigrant or are too stupid to do basic division and understand the concept of income per capita, people are having less kids.  Thirdly, the economy is so poor, an entire generation has had the forced lesson of minimalism forced on them.  And finally, if you look at labor force participation rates, people are wising up (even feminist-fed women) and realizing that yes, work indeed sucks. In other words, society is slowly "going Galt" as they respond to the perverse and country-destroying policies socialists have enacted upon society.  This may not be the "rapid" "starve the beast TODAY" sort of strategy idealistic Galtists want, but it is to show them that what they wish for is already happening naturally.  Perhaps not at the pace they wanted, but it is happening and it cannot be stopped. 

The real issue, however, is one of hope.  Galtists (theoretical or not) deep down inside want to starve the beast TODAY with the hopes that a new society would emerge from the ashes so quickly that they would be able to participate and enjoy said new society during their lifetime.  The problem is that society is too glacial, America too entrenched economically and globally, and our citizenry too fat, stupid and endebted that this will never happen.  Most people alive today will die watching a declining America, not a phoenix from the ashes.  It will be future generations that will witness a reality-forced destruction of socialist America, and a resurrection, if there ever is one.

"Tampon Journalism" of The Guardian

The REAL story here is not the click bait of a hopeless dependent and childish feminist who demands tampons be made free for all women.

It's that The Guardian would even consider publishing such pointless trash, which belies just how obsolete the MSM has become.

Second Homes, A Stupid Mistake

Like cars, you can only use one home at a time.

But you know, don't let facts and logic get in the way of your ego and desire to fake status.

Dog Days of Summer

Not exactly a book babe, but I am pro-dog:




















Which reminds me, though the offer for "Book Babe Models" still stands (free books for any conservative/libertarian babes that want to pose with them) I think if you have a cool dog I might mail you out a free copy or two of my books.  But we're talking really totally cool dogs like Dudley up there.

Seattle to Billings

Howdy Lieutenants!

Made a rocket run from Seattle to Billings, Montana, and after sleeping in, I shall head out and hunt down some moss agates as well as fossils in SE Montana.

In the meantime wanted to share a couple pictures with you all.  One is a picture of a bridge in Washington.  I thought the state of Washington was all trees and mountains, but instead it's truthfully mostly prairie and desert, interrupted with the occasional Columbia river or random lake.  Also included is a picture of Lake Coeure d' Alene (which I only drove past during night and never had time during the day to swim in, which I did) and the bar in Kellogg, Idaho where my "Staph Infected Hippie Chick" story was from, that is now closed.

An Economist Explains Russia's Sanctions

Jerry Robinson is an economist who I reference frequently because he is one of the economists I keep learning from AND he's younger than me.  Saw this while loading up the ole podcast in anticipation of my road trip and thought many of you would enjoy it as well.

My apologies for the fewer amounts of posts during the summer, but I am trying to enjoy summer while it's here and avail myself of the excellent weather.  Normal blogging will return to a more normal level in late August.  In the meantime I strongly suggest you also enjoy the summer and not read up too much on economics, politics, etc., during these waning days of summer.

Oh, the Irony

And just 5 years ago Kirchner and Obama were best of buds.
