Andrew Wilkow has a theory that the only reason why the left is opposed to capitalism and rich people is because they can’t stand knowing that ordinary people have access to luxuries that only the important people should have. After all, what’s the point of being a VIP if anyone with money could do it? He calls this theory his “Everyman a King” theory. So what’s an elitist to do?

Advocate for laws that restrict the poor from having things while leaving yourself exempt. Check out Taylor Swift, a gun control supporter.

Now check out her $3 million a year worth of armed security, including hiring off duty armed cops. Even in Australia, she is accompanied by armed guards. Guns are only illegal in Oz if you are poor, I guess.

She is so paranoid about security that she admits to carrying what she calls “Army grade QuikClot bandage dressings” for gunshot or stab wounds. She uses facial recognition at her concerts to help weed out security threats.

So she hates guns- unless they are to protect her. Even then, this airheaded, paranoid moron fires her security guards for doing their jobs. It may be a well paid gig, but I wouldn’t be interested.

He calls this theory his “Everyman a King” theory.

I’ve read that before and, as a theory, it does tend to explain a lot of observed behavior from the so-called elite. It at least lends some understandable logic to illogical behavior.

For most of them, I tend to believe it never actually rises to the level of conscious thought. There’s just too much cognitive dissonance in there for most of them (I do believe those at the top do actively think this, but Taylor Swift? – Hard no). Like female hypergamy, it’s more instinct rather than deliberate action. Most women have no idea why they always end up with a bad boy, or respond so hard to a proper neg, or have a string of failed relationships. And most elite have no idea what we think or why we don’t like them.

This seems to be the “luxury beliefs” theory taken to the logical next step.

Because everyone, even though literally without a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of, can have some of the very highest and most sophisticated technology anywhere, the upper echelon isolate themselves through their belief system, and this is a system from whose consequences they are completely insulated.

They are free to believe the dumbest and most ridiculous things against all available evidence and never pay a price for these beliefs, socializing them.

Wilkow is great. “You can’t bring there to here, without here becoming there”

I think it was El Rushbo that said they want to make it so no one can ever have a good life again in FUSA and any other place they can take over with socialism/communism.
China the UN and ESFT shouldn’t get too cocky as the 100 million replacements incoming isn’t possible without the fossils running traitorgov.

Envy is a thing. Human instinct says, being at the bottom of the pecking order is a life-threateningly dangerous place to be. “Justifies” stepping on the faces of anyone to climb up from that position. “Liberty and justice for all” implies no pecking order, where everyone starts off with equal status in the judgment of whatever enforces the law. But this situation is intolerable in the opinion of genetically-coded human instinct.

Speaking of…this morning a friend asked me if I planned to watch the Taylor Swift Show next Sunday.
