The Two Tier Future

This was a very good post from thuletide on Gab.


This ties in nicely with my post What Would It Look Like?, pondering life under a neo-Bolshevik victory. The picture is especially powerful, an incredibly posh home surrounded by slums. This is their future, an elite few living in opulence while the rest of us languish in poverty and deprivation. It is similar to life in the former Soviet Union where party elites lived like royalty and the noble workers stood in line all day for a stale loaf of bread. 

This is applicable to the silly "Get woke, go broke" Boomer nonsense. Hollywood has been far more concerned with propaganda and The Message for decades than it has been with making lots of money. They can always roll out some awful Marvel movie and rake in a few hundred million from White guys to subsidize making leftist agitprop films. 

However it looks in practice, the goal is what I have been talking about: a dominant, small minority ruling over the rest of humanity with a slightly larger mandarin class acting as administrators. 

If you are reading this your fate under the new regime looks more like the favela slums in the picture above. Those are the stakes we face.

  1. That is wildly optimistic, more like 1920s-1930s Ukraine for the Great Reset Leap Forward.
    The utopia builders would never live that close to deplorable kulak untermenschen scum.

    1. Wealth feels a lot wealthier if you have poor people to sneer at on a regular basis though. If everyone you know is wealthy, you are just a normal guy.

    2. I wrote something like that before, what makes being rich great is not what you can buy but how it makes you feel better than other people. The bigger the gap, the better you feel.

  2. I think it's important in this day and age to own your own home free and clear and have some percentage of food independence, a garden, fruit trees, maybe egg laying hens, and say a year's supply of non perishable food. Some kind of wood burning heat source could also be advisable. You can do this even in the suburbs. Yeah men with guns could drive you out or kill you, but that's always a risk, wherever you are. The important thing is not to be too beholden to others for basic survival.

    My place is all of the above except for the hens

  3. The equivalent of the above photo is what those who remain in the cities will get - and deserve. I'm referring to the slums not the country club, which is reserved for your 'betters'.
    Don't worry, you'll still have your voting and constitusheeon.

  4. This is the goal - a ruling elite, their familiars, and the rest.

    1. That has been the goal for the better part of a century, probably longer
