mod6: hanbot: yeah, the guide needs to be updated. It's on the to-do list, just had my hands full lately. I can help you get patched up from v0.5.3.1 if you like. We can work on that this week.
mod6: Meanwhile, I can offer you a script that I use to patch up through maxint_locks_corrected from v0.5.3.1 -- it's not a guide, but if you read the steps, it's what needs to happen and in what order. The new (forthcoming) guide will be based on these steps:

mircea_popescu: wilbns i agree with trinque
mircea_popescu: there's really no space, no need and no benefit from "the people" getting involved in managing other people's affairs.

mircea_popescu: thestringpuller lmao what a fucking scam srsly... so he has some pictures, pngs text on it, wants to be paid serious dough for this and runs disqus to boot.
mircea_popescu: why does bitcoin attract the cream of the crop of imbecility ?
shinohai: Because without hundreds of features, how you gonna moon?
wilbns: trinque: i liked paul too. perhaps great change will come through cryptography and decentralization
trinque: people are "free" enough today that they could change anything they like
trinque: they don't. why?
trinque: you can go out into the street right now and start a riot, and the cops wont even kill that many people
mircea_popescu: for as long as it's growing they're not killing anyone.

mircea_popescu: soo, somewhat interesting, maybe. 1984 was actually born at a precise place : "In nationalist thought there are facts which are both true and untrue, known and unknown. A known fact may be so unbearable that it is habitually pushed aside and not allowed to enter into logical processes, or on the other hand it may enter into every calculation and yet never be admitted as a fact, even in one's own mind." appears in a 194
mircea_popescu: 5 piece denouncing "nationalism". which, at the time, simply denoted what socialism (or "liberalism" as it usually self-identifies) denotes today : the ideology of stupid people.
mircea_popescu: meanwhile tyhe next paragraph is actually the valuable bit :
mircea_popescu: "Every nationalist is haunted by the belief that the past can be altered. He spends part of his time in a fantasy world in which things happen as they should–in which, for example, the Spanish Armada was a success or the Russian Revolution was crushed in 1918–and he will transfer fragments of this world to the history books whenever possible. Much of the propagandist writing of our time amounts to plain forgery. Ma
mircea_popescu: terial facts are suppressed, dates altered, quotations removed from their context and doctored so as to change their meaning. Events which it is felt ought not to have happened are left unmentioned and ultimately denied [Note, below]. In 1927 Chiang Kai Shek boiled hundreds of Communists alive, and yet within ten years he had become one of the heroes of the Left. The re-alignment of world politics had brought him into
mircea_popescu: the anti-Fascist camp, and so it was felt that the boiling of the Communists 'didn't count', or perhaps had not happened. The primary aim of propaganda is, of course, to influence contemporary opinion, but those who rewrite history do probably believe with part of their minds that they are actually thrusting facts into the past. When one considers the elaborate forgeries that have been committed in order to show that T
mircea_popescu: rotsky did not play a valuable part in the Russian civil war, it is difficult to feel that the people responsible are merely lying. More probably they feel that their own version was what happened in the sight of God, and that one is justified in rearranging the records accordingly."
mircea_popescu: replace "nationalist" with "socialist" (or, if you prefer to use the self term, "liberal") and note how the ideology of the stupid still behaves today in the manner it behaved then.
mircea_popescu: thus therefore : mozart had a sister ; there existed black people of import in history ; global warming was the consensus during the mini ice age six centuries ago and so on.

asciilifeform: 'ONE way of feeling infallible is not to keep a diary. Looking back through the diary I kept in 1940 and 1941 I find that I was usually wrong when it was possible to be wrong. Yet I was not so wrong as the Military Experts. Experts of various schools were telling us in 1939 that the Maginot Line was impregnable, and that the Russo-German Pact had put an end to Hitler’s eastwards expansion; in early 1940 they were telling us
asciilifeform: that the days of tank warfare were over; in mid 1940 they were telling us that the Germans would invade Britain forthwith; in mid 1941 that the Red army would fold up in six weeks; in December 1941, that Japan would collapse after ninety days; in July 1942, that Egypt was lost and so on, more or less indefinitely. Where now are the men who told us those things? Still on the job, drawing fat salaries. Instead of the unsinkable

The old-style contemptuous attitude towards 'natives' has been much weakened in England, and various pseudo-scientific theories emphasising the superiority of the white race have been abandoned.[Note, below] Among the intelligentsia, colour feeling only occurs in the transposed form, that is, as a belief in the innate superiority of the coloured races. This is now increasingly common among Englis

mircea_popescu: ha!
mircea_popescu: i guess i restated orwell.
asciilifeform: hey whatcanyado, man had eyes, saw.
mats: i found out today my former verizon wireless grandfathered unlimited plan is worth 1k on ebay
mircea_popescu: moreover, the purely sexual drive of the entire "black superiority" notion held strictly by pencilnecked white guys is glaring.
mats: craziness
mircea_popescu: mats get used to it. this is how socialism goes.
asciilifeform: mats: prolly not really transferable
mircea_popescu: grandfathered everything were worth insane amounts. like you know, "being served by the old style dumpsters rather than the new ones"
asciilifeform: prolly most famous example in the world is nyc flats

BingoBoingo: Oh, apparently reddit admins just straight up changed the moderators of /r/PunchableFaces
asciilifeform: much of what we know of the man's mind comes from letters to his sister, srsly
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform did you see the film ?
asciilifeform: no film
asciilifeform: just the letters
mircea_popescu: is what i was speaking towards.
asciilifeform: what film
mircea_popescu: libertards made a film about "mozart as a woman", but not actually insane enough to just do it, so it came out a sort of pancake.
asciilifeform: l0l!
mircea_popescu: it cost me some stuff i won't disclose,
mircea_popescu: i had a long standing bet that the "nationalists" will make a "shakespeare was a woman. rly. " attempt at rewriting history to fit the agenda
mircea_popescu: or you know, what they perceive is right in god's eye.
asciilifeform: they also have a long-standing idiocy re: einstein, on same pattern
asciilifeform: he is also in the queue for a film, i imagie.
mircea_popescu: "Nationalistic attachment to the coloured races is usually mixed up with the belief that their sex lives are superior, and there is a large underground mythology about the sexual prowess of Negroes."

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is his female name noether ?
asciilifeform: nah that would make some semblance of sense
mircea_popescu: this is perhaps the most objectionable part of these fried chicken niggers, clogging government with their unwelcome corpses.
asciilifeform: the liberast version is instead that 'he stole from his ex-wife'
mircea_popescu: instead of learning the world as it is, they dream up an infinitely boring-er, stolid-er, like them-er one.
asciilifeform: naturally
asciilifeform: who wants to wake up to being garbage
mircea_popescu: i'd be curious to see what'd happen to one of these scumcanoes should they get somehow magically stuck into seeing themselves with the eyes of a sane person.
mircea_popescu: that'd make one great film.
asciilifeform: no doubt this film will be made. one day.
mircea_popescu: 3 hours of this, julia roberts going slowly insane while seeking the help of an entire array of "experts" to make reality CEASE!11
asciilifeform: but will likely have the flavour of 'donald duck in nazi-land'
mircea_popescu: maybe she could blow her brains out at the premiere, right on the red carpet.
asciilifeform: failing this, theatre will have to pass out tabs of lsd with tickets
BingoBoingo: OH, /r/punchablefaces was turned over to SJW's and Libertards supporting Bernie Sanders revolted
mircea_popescu: or even make the tickets be the tabs

asciilifeform: win
asciilifeform: it is difficult to make convincing films about insane folks
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo lmao
asciilifeform: but technology can help!!11
mircea_popescu: yeah, one of the best to date (good will hunting) was drastically unconvincing
mircea_popescu: points for "best effort", but still.

asciilifeform: i expected things from that film.
mircea_popescu: never a good idea
asciilifeform: aha.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Apparently much of reddit was upvoating multiple posts of the #Blacklivesmatter Hamplanet who got a bernie sanders speech canceled as an /r/punchableface this was followed by Reddit censorship in the name of Cliter. Now there's a fuckton of wholes becasue no one on reddit uses
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: i have no idea who bernie sanders is, or why black lives'd matter.
mircea_popescu: fill me in ?
mircea_popescu: (do they mean "the lives of blacks" matter ?)
BingoBoingo: And yet, Black owned businesses are still being looted in Fergeson by niggers to the point Black people hate niggers
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> (do they mean "the lives of blacks" matter ?) << Yes
mircea_popescu: this was in dispute ?
mircea_popescu: why do they say "black lives" when they mean "the lives of blacks" ?
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> i have no idea who bernie sanders is, or why black lives'd matter. << The democrat running against Cliter in the presidential primary who admits to being a socialist

mircea_popescu: what's a sister in brd ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Both are Black supremacists.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The complication and number of steps you have to understand are "essential propaganda noise"
mircea_popescu: so wait. the black people that have no pro-grammar make the lives of blacks matter by opposing the campaign appearances of a white guy that runs against a white woman for the nomination to presidency of the democratic party ?
BingoBoingo: The hamplanet was black and Bernie Sanders is this cycle's prime food stamp candidate
BingoBoingo: Yes
mircea_popescu: so they have 0 to do with the lives of black people, being just another outsourced astroturf effort ?
mircea_popescu: and the only place where this matters is reddit, much in the way the only place you find bilge is down in the keel ?
BingoBoingo: "I'm not so prepared to dismiss this protest as "poorly researched" or "poorly executed." I feel like this protest follows a pattern that's so common in feminist and queer circles that we should recognize and expect it now: we critique each other to make our movement inclusive and intersectional, so that our spaces might reject all oppressive forms. When a queer bar isn't entirely inclusive to people that aren't cis-white-rich-gay
BingoBoingo: men, it's much easier to critique and change that bar into one that is inclusive than to petition the nearest straight bar. When Taylor Swift fucks up as a feminist, we call her out (yet we don't call out men or women who do not identify as feminist with nearly such vigor). Why? Because we hope that these people are much more inclined to listen and to uplift further marginalized people and movements.
BingoBoingo: When no candidate is in full support of your movement, it's going to be easiest to convince the one that is somewhat supportive to do a better job than to convince your greatest enemy to do a slightly less shitty job."
mircea_popescu: "We here at /r/ShitRedditSays are taking the firm policy"
mircea_popescu: who's "we here" ?
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> so they have 0 to do with the lives of black people, being just another outsourced astroturf effort ? << up, see above
mircea_popescu: "feminist and queer circles" ?
mircea_popescu: isn't this insulting to the actual shape involved ?
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: The collective farm we. The gulag's vote as reported in Washington
mircea_popescu: which is more like a donut
BingoBoingo: It's insulting to literacy in general
mircea_popescu: well that's a given
BingoBoingo: No language should have to suffer this attempt at persuasive prose.
mircea_popescu: anyway, the faux-soviet terminology is endearing. such wannabes.
BingoBoingo: C++ is embarrassed right now that an English speaker birthed it
mircea_popescu: "When Taylor Swift fucks up as a feminist"
mircea_popescu: who's taylor swift ?
mircea_popescu: i thought it was this season's britney spears
pete_dushenski: she is, but $200 mn 'dollars' worth
mircea_popescu: hardly.
pete_dushenski: i didn't make this up
mircea_popescu: so how is a plastic bimbo that exists to keep these idiots chugging along in the muck "a feminist" ?
BingoBoingo: Taylor Swift could actually get the dick though. Britney Chain always had the crazy.
funkenstein_: we need dave chapelle back to straighten all this out for us
mircea_popescu: is that the black pothead ?
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> so how is a plastic bimbo that exists to keep these idiots chugging along in the muck "a feminist" ? << Swift like Beyonce used the word feminist thinking it would "expand their market"
funkenstein_: not sure, depends on your context
pete_dushenski: "name da 5 best rappers of all time : dylan, dylan, dylan, dylan, and dylan"
mircea_popescu: he;'s the dude with the nigger family sketch right ?
funkenstein_: yeah :)
funkenstein_: and the racial draft
BingoBoingo: Related
assbot: ... ( )
funkenstein_: and who was it Clayton Biggles?
pete_dushenski: and the black white supremacist.
funkenstein_: ^
pete_dushenski: bigsby iirc
BingoBoingo: <pete_dushenski> and the black white supremacist. << Old meme. Been done since 1620
mircea_popescu: "However, as this matter might not be fully understood, we would like to open a space for discussion in order to further understanding. The usual rules about circlequeefing and Rule X (to an extent) do not apply in this thread, however we expect discussion to be in good faith and a genuine attempt to understand the white supremacy behind the angry reactions to Black Lives Matter's quite frankly highly successful and ex
mircea_popescu: tremely necessary protesting. Note that this is not a debate. The angry backlash at Black Lives Matter is pure white supremacy and this is not up for compromise, however there are few sources for understanding why this fact is, and we would like to help our sisters in BRD understand them better."
funkenstein_: i'm still a free agent
mircea_popescu: can i have this translated to english ?
mircea_popescu: and wtf are "the sisters in brd" already.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: It doesn't translate to anything
asciilifeform: what next translated to english? the schizo bum ranting on the corner also has material for translation !
asciilifeform: and likely - more interesting
mircea_popescu: "Gynocratic Council
mircea_popescu: High Chancellor of Free Speech"
mircea_popescu: lmao.
mircea_popescu: i'm surprised "at large" isn't in there.
mircea_popescu: perhaps too uncomfortable.
mircea_popescu: "gynocratic councillor at large" sounds pretty apt for plenty of these tho
BingoBoingo: Dude had a campaign rally, dark Hamplanet hijacked the stage because can't afford cameras, supporters of candidate suddenly racist
pete_dushenski: 'and in charge' tailing that
mircea_popescu: Of the top 50 /r/punchablefaces, 42 of them are about the BLM protestors. The top 10 have a combined total of over 47k points, more than 3x the amount of points than what Obama's AMA got, or hell even twice the top post of all time from me_irl.
mircea_popescu: bwhgahaha
mircea_popescu: so wait, i thought the libertards were you know, dominating and shit ?
mircea_popescu: where is it ?
mircea_popescu: who was derping on about how the circle-queef to use its self-given name was in charge of the us ?
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> so wait, i thought the libertards were you know, dominating and shit ? << Actual libertards love Bernie Sanders because he confesses to being socialist. Lizard Libertards want Clitler so... Social media fight
mircea_popescu: o ic.
mircea_popescu: mkay.
BingoBoingo: Basically this is all an intra libertard fight
mircea_popescu: But here’s the thing – what’s powerful about these interruptions from Black women is less how it has changed the tone of the Democratic campaigns and more about what they have exposed in the White left.
mircea_popescu: I see these protests as less about the individual candidates themselves and more about how their White base refuses to center Black lives and Black issues.
mircea_popescu: well doh. who the fuck cares. blacks are what 11% ?
BingoBoingo: But the Handlers never imagined that one sect would go so over the rails in the name of "intersectionality" that the Level 1 socialists could defeat the Lv 65 NPC pan-racial boss by swarming
mircea_popescu: not notable. and in any case already overrepresented and overcatered.
mircea_popescu: not to mention the part where most black people actually would rather be NOT part of the little africa ghetto these fucktards are trying to build.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> I see these protests as less about the individual candidates themselves and more about how their White base refuses to center Black lives and Black issues. << This is the great problem of "the people" as a construct.
mircea_popescu: no but srsly, center black people ? what is this.
mircea_popescu: next we're going to center bitcoin around the power rangers or some equally deranged shit,
mircea_popescu: because a vague affiliation with a crumbly, 1/10 base can be parlayed into interest through speaking really loudly.
BingoBoingo: "the people" as retarded in development as it necessarily is always presents as a unified mass when it is really a bunch of things that don't agree on a single point.
