rhymes ya’ know.Chamath Palihapitiya,[https://nypost.com/2022/01/18/virgin-galactic-distances-itself-from-chairman-chamath-palihapitiya-over-uyghur-remarks/]
He will soon learn. Replace ‘nobody’ with “I, Chamath Palihapitiya’. Replace  ‘The rest of us’ with “I, CP”He is beginning to be “chat” [soft ‘c’] upon

“Let’s be honest, nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs,” Palihapitiya said. “You bring it up because you really care, and I think that’s nice that you care. The rest of us don’t care.

“I’m telling you a very hard, ugly truth. Of all the things that I care about, it is below my line.”He is in fact telling us a truth about his own sociopathic self that is true.



Early nominee for “Shitbird Ingrate 2022″Maybe he should return to Sri Lanka and then we can not care about him.I think he’ll get sufficient grief and shunning to change his tune, if not fuck him.

The continuing musical chairs game of incompetents and incompetence in Hawaii

There just aren’t enough skilled, competent, conscientious, honest individuals to do certain things in Hawaii. Rail fail, Super duper ferry, the Alawai and on and on and on.

The universe, even if a mindless process, is not necessarily unfair.

The actual harm done by voluntarily unvaccinated individuals is mostly to other voluntarily unvaccinated individuals.

Those whose worldview is bereft of universally applied principles, and based solely on tribal allegiances, assume everyone else is plagued by this very deficiency.

The golden rule of hunter-gather life is pretty simple:

The golden rule of hunter-gather life is pretty simple: Do everything to bring the band together; do nothing to split it apart. Don’t sow division. Don’t hog up more than your share (of food, sex partners, attention). If you happen to be blessed with muscle, don’t throw it around. If you happen to be a great hunter or a dazzling beauty, don’t flaunt it over others. Be one of the good guys, in other words. Of course, if there’s an instinct in humans to get along with each other in groups, there’s also an instinct to get ahead. We proposed that agonistic structure in stories generally, not just in Victorian novels, reflects the ancient morality of hunter-gatherer life. Living in groups, as humans must, means constantly balancing our selfish impulses with group needs. Protagonists of stories properly balance individual self-interest with the needs of the group. In general, protagonists sacrifice their self-interest for the common good when the two are in conflict. Not antagonists. Pretty much the definition of a bad person among hunter-gatherers is the bad team player who reliably puts his or her own interests above the group’s.

It’s not a government… it’s a totalitarian, racist-Han Chinese Communist Party faux-state.

There may be a tipping point when consumers in the US and the EU and elsewhere become so troubled with how China treats its Uyghur and Tibetan populations (see this and this) or how it is acting against Hong Kong or Taiwan or with its efforts to exert control outside China. These sorts of things are leaking out more of late as the bloom is off the rose and we are hearing more and more from our own clients (American and otherwise) saying that they are having employees refuse to go to China or consumers complaining about their goods being made in China. Take a company like Patagonia which has a stellar reputation for caring about the environment and people and even goes so far as to call itself The Activist Company; how much longer can it maintain its moral high ground while still having some of its products made in China?
