Monetary reparations is a stupid move imo. Granting land to freed slaves would have been much better if we'd done it when Lincoln proposed it (real shame that guy got killed), but… if we could figure out ways to do it now, that would unironically be better than payouts.

Hot Take: This is actually a rebellion against the Fed's myopic austerity and is a deft move.
California's economy is so large it's practically it's own country. The Fed's foolish attempt at bringing inflation back down to 2% is pushing their shit in. There's not reason for it other than to protect the rent seeking New Your financial industry which California's economy does not rely on.

In general you look at the class character of a proposed wealth redistribution, if wealth goes from the bourgeoisie to the proletariat, you support it, if it goes the other way around you oppose it.

Inflated as in there's more of it than there needs to be. IE unemployment is kept artificially high, which means that some people (a lot actually, but not technically a majority) cannot realistically expect gainful full-time employment, and those people end up being the so-called "lumpenproles" usually out of their personal necessity more than anything else.

Fun fact: every human alive today is ultimately the product of rape. The sheer numbers of generations and population bottlenecks ensures that this is true: everyone has an ancestor who was conceived when their mother was raped, and wouldn't exist today had that rape not happened. How are we to obtain justice for this great historic crime that affects all of us? Or perhaps we should admit that the idea of justice for victims who have been removed from this world for generations is one of the greatest spooks.

You are behind the times, did you not read the OP. A major metro just announced DETAILED plans distribute reparations. Yeah, it may still fall flat on it's face, but the fact that it even got this far is a major coup.
I'm under no illusion that this is being done out of altruism.
What's happening is that capitalism is dismantling the settler colonist class (aka white people). It's not needed anymore, not in the information age.
All the world's greatest wealth is generated from knowledge work, not extracting raw goods from colonies.
Having a settler class is just an extraneous expense now. It's really stupid for a capitalist to pay six figures to a software dev, doctor, lawyer, etc who's labor is only scarce because blacks and other minorities do not have access to the type of education needed to fill these jobs.
Fucking IBM was complaining about the fact that white middle class workers weren't hiring blacks, and therefore keeping wages for themselves inflated, as far back as the 1950's.
White workers for some reason think what they're doing isn't obvious but it is.
And white workers think that it isn't obvious that blacks are being kept as a under caste by not allowing them to build any equity. That's why their enslavement have just gone from one permutation to another, from chattel slaver, to prisoner leasing, to Jim Crow, back to prisoners for drug offenses. Because blacks cannot defend themselves because they have no money. And it's easy to keep them that way.
The only way to actually break the cycle is to bring blacks to parity to white in terms of equity. Then they can defend themselves against any attempts to bring them back into the underclass.
You can't say, start treating West Virginians like black in LA because middle class whites have solidarity with them and will see their own interests threatened absorb genuine risk to defend other whites. Capitalist know this, this is why there's never been any genuine attempt to make enslavement more equal in the current year so to speak.
This move by San Francisco shows a real commitment to finally disposing of the settler colonist class once and for all. White people intuitively know this, this is why you see so much seething in this thread.
This is none the less progressive and will actually make white workers more revolutionary once they realize they are not guaranteed a place in master's house as a house negro.

>Should everyone with a single drop of melanin in their ancestry get the free shit? What if they descend mostly from slave owners but also have some Sally Hemings in their lineage?
Again, these types of specifics are unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Maybe you're right, maybe say wealthy blacks shouldn't get anything. Regardless you have millions of blacks trapped in a cycle of poverty that is a direct result of chattel slavery which the US has declared beyond abhorrent.

Actually it's quite important, if you ever want to convince people that your dumb idea is feasible. Workers outside of insulated professional-managerial/academic circles don't decide to fight for things based on feelings, they operate on base self-interest. You need to convince them that your proposal which may do nothing to improve their own living conditions is at least implementable in a consistent and fair manner.

From my own experiences, I've been Lumpen-adjacent due to desperation, and the geneal rule is that genuinely desperate, good people, only rub sholders in that part of society for a few months of best, before they find themselves back on their feet somewhat.
Most Lumpens I've met were genuinely bad people with extremely toxic, mentally unstable, manipualtive personalities. If they had their shit together, they would be scamming car salesmen or MLM or Wall Street types. But they don't, so they end up as Criminals.

If you got out, you were selected to live. If you're selected to die, you don't get out. That's the great rule to decide whether you can have anything in this world, and no amount of scheming can save you. By definition, those selected to die, who are subjected to the cycle from an early age, are not allowed out. That's the entire point of this moral enterprise, and what we have been made to produce for.

You might be able to scrape together a life in the lumpen world, but once you're cast out of gainful employment, they don't let you back in, and even if you somehow found a position where you're not under constant attack, the past will always be used against you. When you encounter that, as I have, you do ask why you should even bother trying to conform to a society that screams "die die die die die" to your face. At best you wind up being a Frank Grimes. Meanwhile, if you're lumpen, your bad behavior is rewarded and expected. We're conditioned to be as rotten and venal as possible, kicking down to be for a short time king of a trash heap. That's the way we set for ourselves, and it goes all the way up into polite society. Once the lumpen becomes a vector for perpetuating the rot, the cycle has done its job, and the prophecy of failure is confirmed. That's been the whole point of this project, and so the lumpen are only allowed the most degrading images of themselves in the public imagination. The idea that we can be anything other than insane and retarded is dismissed and vigorously attacked, and this is an absolute that is the moral basis for the present society. Absent a belief in God or some idea that can transcend the muck of the world, this would be the most effective governing idea - to produce misery in every way possible and allow a selected minority to never have to debase themselves by being associated with defeat and failure. The lumpen are to be transformed into living abortions and can never be anything else. Their suffering must be absolute, their pleasures turned into a grotesque parody of humanity, and that is all that will be permitted. Anything else will be no longer admissible as a valid idea, and can only be described as a vagary before it is wiped out and replaced with the new programming.

Even if you understand the method through and through, you cannot change it, and cannot exist in spite of this ruling idea for long. The only constraint is that institutions can only reach so far, and it is impossible to impose this vision of the world as thoroughly as a ruler would like. Almost inexorably, the concentration of wealth and machinery into an elite means that the technology of the rulers invades every niche of space, including our own bodies. No countervailing force is allowed to exist for long.

In any event, the criminal element and the ruling class have maintained a long relationship. There wouldn't be narcolords if the narcotics business weren't essential for the Empire and its governing idea. It is unsurprising that much of what we take for granted today comes out of the Opium War.

To give you an idea - there are people who spend their whole lives on disability, and they ask when they're 40 or 50 if they can finally have a job like a normal person. I've heard of old men who reach retirement age even asking for the dignity of being exploited. That's how miserable our lives are - we're not allowed to be anything but this, to be humiliated day after day. The reasoning is clear when you see that the entire purpose of this social enterprise has been to sort the population and weed us out. Everything we would produce is directed towards this goal, in one way or another. Some would use a eugenic argument and use the taboo and selective breeding, others a moral argument about institutions possessing greater legitimacy than mere mortals, others appealing to a simple and crude Satanist morality. Christianity itself is no exception, and what we live through now is presaged by the characteristics of Christian civilization, going back to its philosophical origins and the contest and great game of that time. There had always been an understanding that this is unsatisfactory, but anyone suggesting something new finds it nearly impossible to work against that which has been established for so long. Only sporadically does an idea inimical to this ruling creed exist, and it is usually dismissed as a fantasy. Should it be pursued, it would run into the inertia of the ruling force and that which has perpetuated for generations, which itself morphs and adapts to all that would challenge it.

Usually, though, we die before we can be anything else, and those who perpetuate the rot are rewarded. You see this play out in schools, where the retarded kids are induced to attack each other like jackals and trained in maximal humiliation. We see the results of that in online echo chambers, as these souls cralwed onto the internet in search of answers and, very quickly, the cycle asserted itself to purge any of us who had an idea that it could be anything else. This is what I have seen for the past 20+ years. The saddest thing for me is that the people who are degraded the most and suffer the most are often the people who are most passionate about the idea to perpetuate the rot. The present situation would not be sustainable without legions of enablers whose sole function is to keep the lumpens killing each other, so that nothing can grow. Influencers and rich men can feed a few ghetto-ass piggas some drugs or promises of a rap career and watch as the rot continues, and they laugh at how easy it is. Without the continuation of this cycle, the drug lords and the bourgeoisie, who are all managerial and above the grubbiness of work, would be forced into full retreat, and the damned of the Earth would given sufficient organization storm every single hiding place of those who encouraged this and tear to shreds the whole ruling system.

This was the fear that was felt in the 1920s and 1930s. It is forgotten now how much the typical American of any race wanted above all to tear the rich from limb to limb, because their experience with the monied aristocracy and the educated elite is that they were an irreconcilable enemy that desired nothing more than the total, abject torture of anyone not selected to live. This was the end result of British liberalism, which became fully eugenic and genocidal. There is no peace with that - but to prevent this, any idea inimical to eugenics would be suppressed, and inchoate sops would be offered in place of any criticism which suggested something other than the eugenic idea as the ruling idea. There would not be permitted a serious attack of the eugenic creed, because such an attack would necessarily call for the full liquidation of the existing eugenic interest, and it would call for something no politician ever wants to grant - the return to the people of their land, for free, with no obligation to society or any other entity. Only after this would it be possible to reform society on grounds that might be more amenable to the rest of us, if we so chose this. Since the eugenic interest would never, ever reconcile with us, it is unlikely socialism would have been possible beyond a small scale, and with it, imperial civilization would likely decay and collapse. This would have led to the potential of an external threat overthrowing a society that was decent, unless the common pleb somehow could form a machine that would defeat the bureaucratic, technocratic regimes that did arise. It was not impossible, but it was a thing that was consciously destroyed by all parties interested in revolution or the imposition of a fascist "end of history". It would have entailed a much different world than anything that was allowed to exist, and ultimately it would question the very nature of the human project and how we would live at all. A stubborn pride in humanism was the undoing of the human project, and its replacement with this shit we live in today. We were not allowed to be anything else, and it was through the lowest class that this would be imposed.

I'll also add, the people who post this shit, these memes and intimidation tactics, are enablers of this exact rot. They don't want anything else to exist and attach themselves to an immense preponderance of terror to push their agenda. They cannot do anything else. They do not allow anything else to exist. They only want the maximal thrill of torture. That is their god, and in a different world people starting this shit would be dragged out and shot, rather than be allowed to post their shit. We live in the world where the only permissible ideas are eugenic ones, and for that, we are condemned. We could attempt to ignore it, but the rot has gone on for too long and insinuated itself so thoroughly that the moment someone does claw back a thing for themselves, it is immediately destroyed by exposure to the rot. Nothing good will be permitted to enter the public discourse without being attacked ad nauseum, until the new concept is destroyed. In this way, history is arrested. The only way to stop it is a counterforce that is willing to hate as much as they hate, and that's the way they want the world to persist. If there is a new Satan, they will attach themselves to it like the venal animals they are. They do not know anything else or the possibility that there can be anything else. They are natural slaves.

You're not the Illumnati, you're just an ordinary fag.
That said the original Illumanti weren't anything special. It was just this Kraut guy who was like any other pissant teenager. That I believe was one of the codewords they used when they wanted to throw common understanding into disarray. For a long time there has been an anti-Masonic movement in America, and the Masons were not so super secretive that they were above criticism. It was generally known who was or wasn't a Mason, and a lot of Masons aren't anything special. By invoking "the Illumanti", which were really just some 18th century edgelords, they're conflating something shady and mysterious with every other thing coded as "conspiracy", and disallowing any analysis of what these conspiracies are. If you get into the weeds of conspiracism though, you will see names and patterns of behavior that are definite. The dominant way people understood politics was the conspiracy, rather than these narratives about the pretenses of the state. This used to be common knowledge, and it became necessary to mystify it when politics was moved behind a curtain and republican institutions were to be replaced with technocratic ones.

Reparations are something you demand after a war, not as a sop given decades after the fact. Everything I read about serious reparations proposals suggested a transfer of wealth from those who were financial beneficiaries of slavery to the ex-slaves; that is, the slave interest that used to be tied to finance in America. It was the language of people who were contesting the commanding heights of finance, rather than a "gimme" to the slaves.

If we wanted to set a situation right, or make it as good as we could, we would recognize what was done with slavery; but if we did that, we would see immediately the continuation of the slave power up to the present day, and it would be a question that went beyond the racist slavery and racism today. It would attack things which still rule to this day, and that was a bridge too far.

Of course, all of this talk elides what is obvious to us - the republic, or what's left of it, is a grotesque failure, and we have made the concept of either political or social equality impossible in the present society. If you don't have that, any talk about "racial justice" is nonsensical. The oppressor of the ghetto today isn't something in the distant past or some inchoate force that says you're a failure if you look a certain way. If you go to the street and see what daily life is like, and the political machinations at work, people in the ghetto can tell you sources of their woes, the forces supplying drugs and so on. It's not a great secret that crack was seeded in the cities by certain interests - and it came out during Iran-Contra, and subsequently memory holed by the power of Reagan's contagious Alzheimer's.
