asciilifeform: it is even rumoured that usg is pouring printolade into fischer-tropsch , a la the ~prev~ reich
mircea_popescu: this distinguishes reich from any one thing ?
asciilifeform: assumption is 'terrorists want to move objects FROM orcistan TO reich'
asciilifeform: well, speaking generally, 'microscopes' move ~from~ the collapsing industrial reich that they fall out of.
asciilifeform: building sumthing like today's motor , in the last reich, would be 'clockmaker' job ( hand-polish the parts to tolerance ? ), and defo nonstarter at scale, yea

a111: Logged on 2019-01-07 20:31 asciilifeform: but to the extent the props of the reich are working physical artifacts, and they haven't yet descended to shaking pointed sticks and 'ook ook' sounds, they're made by somebody. and that's largely who, folx given -- yes -- some sorta berth.
a111: Logged on 2019-01-07 20:23 asciilifeform: this was the thrust of asciilifeform's arg in the orig thread -- yes there are still people-who-are-people. even inside reich. and no they havent yet all hoisted the republic banner ( each for own reasons, whether ignorance, or 'gotta pay bills NOW', or whatnot.) but they do make things worth having. and sell ( i suspect largely to one another.. )

a111: Logged on 2019-01-07 19:16 mircea_popescu: as a factual matter, there is not the object contemplated in the reich : a thinker so valuable in his thinking, usgistic socialism gives him a berth.

asciilifeform: in the sense that all of reich is subject to whatever 'labour law' etc. ? sure
asciilifeform: before long, http://btcbase.org/log/2019-01-06#1885108 will be the only permitted domestic animal in reich. ☝︎
asciilifeform: ( the very moment, really, when all remaining pretense of 'this aint a reich, and fdr aint fuhrer' was dropped )
asciilifeform: likbez for outside-reich folx : in reich, when folx pay with e.g. 'visa', vendors lose ~5% (they pay for privilege of eating it) and konsoomer wins ~5% ('reward point', exact qty varies by flavour-of-the-day)
asciilifeform: for all i know , somewhere in the reich there's still an old amish d00d remaining, plowing field with horse, eschewing ipnoje, etc. or maybe usg already found him and put into психушка and took land for unpaid tribute.
asciilifeform: last 'independent farmer' in the reich lands, i suspect, died during reign of carter. if not earlier.
asciilifeform: the notion pushed by reich where 'it is cheaper to only work against jackass' is fallacious, your cpu can bear the load.
asciilifeform: stratum: given that the most active criminal is the nato reich itself, what exactly is the worth of pkiistic 'sekoority' where they have master key ?
asciilifeform: (for instance, not only 'buy in china, sell to france, while using reich bank' counts as 'export', but usg subjects physically getting up off arse and moving to wherever and working on 'controlled tech' also counts, etc)

asciilifeform: it's 1 thing if yer stierlitz and sign whatever 'seekrecy agreements' with the reich so as to then have what to radio back to stalin, laughing all the way. it's quite another if yer actually infected and start taking the 'promises' to reich seriously.
asciilifeform: 'cyber threats' is, a la prb, smoke grenade to obscure the actual ur-'cyberthreat' to reich, i.e. comp stack sans usg
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: it's a test bed for the rest of reich
asciilifeform: au is a kinda beta test lab for cutting-edge nato reich retardations
asciilifeform: re: petrowank : asciilifeform also not expert, but last i recall arabs were 'peaked' while ru ramping for 50+y and onwards; hence the pantsuit's perennial interest in picking up last reich's torch and 'spreading demoocracy' there
mircea_popescu: who's left in the reich that can write ?
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-12-01#1877611 << what's the current state of the art re pokerism, anyway ? has it moved to 100% btc yet , or are idiots still being gassed when they cash out in paypalade and travel to reich 'vacation resorts' for no apparent reason ? ☝︎
asciilifeform: here in northern reich we have 'lemme wash yer car' bums but for the most part they dun dare to molest parked vehicle
asciilifeform: i'm here cuz i'ma pauper. why are you in the reich danielpbarron ?
danielpbarron: church is in reich
asciilifeform: incidentally, danielpbarron , iirc yer a money man, wtf are you still doing parked in the reich ??
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: they dun bother going to foreign rack, normally, if it suffices to pick up 'evil mastermind' who conveniently sits in the reich
asciilifeform: while in usg reich, effectively life sentence for ~errything, at least if yer white , is ~standard
asciilifeform: ( 100% iron reich logic )
asciilifeform: reich is set up to ensure that this happens with clockwork regularity to ~erry worker bee.
asciilifeform: Mocky: to a 1st approximation, 'saving' in the reich dun actually work, see e.g. http://btcbase.org/log/2018-08-23#1843888 , http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-05#1666161 , http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-29#1574483 , elsewhere. ☝︎☝︎☝︎
asciilifeform: traditionally, folx who show symptoms of being able to survive outside of the reich, disqualified.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i can only speak what of what i personally witnessed , but presently in the 'software' arm of reich you gotta march in half a regiment or moar, to hire 1 platoon of folx who can 'hello world'
asciilifeform: my (admittedly nonexpert, i dun have a stable of mata haris to actually infiltrate the fuhrerbunker) model , is that reich has exactly 3 ways of getting hands on coin : 1 ) to mine ( not working so well, on acct of http://btcbase.org/log/2018-11-16#1872801 ) ; 2) to whack somebody over the head an' take their keyz. also not doing so hot, e.g. http://qntra.net/2018/11/usms-lists-approximately-660-bitcoins-for-sale/ ; 3 ) to con idjits ☝︎
asciilifeform: i.e. 'their' coinz are 'theirs' while 'they agree' to further reich interest
asciilifeform: pretty much the only lure the reich has remaining to offer idjits
asciilifeform: also i dunget what is the point of 'seekrit charges' etc. already pretty clear that if d00d ever ends up in reich he'll be rolled in bear cage to the national square where drawn and quartered, what 'charges'
asciilifeform: lol war of whom vs whom -- reich vs miamistan ?
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's q wasn't 'whether 4th reich is ripe for the visigoths', seems pretty clear that it is. but whether the entire cycle, where manchu horsemen , 'free and manly' , invade, then turn into fat and idjit empress cixi, is escapable or not
mircea_popescu: but yes, having reich "bank accounts" for imaginary, computer-brained "persons" is certainly part of the overal design.

asciilifeform: all i got is a map , on which serbia not coloured reich black yet, but possibly simple omission.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: phunphakt -- in ye olde su, radio 'hooliganism' (as it was called) was rampant, almost rite of passage for electronics experimenters, and penalty was pretty soft by current-day reich's standards (generally limited to confiscation of the gear. which was made from junkyardwars at any rate, so not particularly big deal)
asciilifeform: ( i was speaking of the lul where they give you a subscription that opens the no-customs door on the way back ~into~ reich )
mircea_popescu: incidentally -- there's a very strong link between http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-25#1865962 (ie, the naive expectation that money buys you good in reich) and the question of... why doesn't alf have elemental fluorine in his house ? "well, he doesn't want it" "suppose he did ?" "then he'd have to get authorization, like the plants do" "you mean... buy toyota ?" "eeexactly". ☝︎
asciilifeform: orig su version of zek fence was the simplistic 'may not go to foreign devil lands'; modern-day reich's is the moar 'advanced', 'looksy but no touchsy' variant.
asciilifeform: phf: funnily enuff, just about erry year i briefly contemplate baking a sane disk crypter, but always run against same wall -- sata interface is ~unobtainable outside of reich-asics
mircea_popescu: 4th reich specifically being the next/current socialist state
a111: Logged on 2018-10-19 01:05 asciilifeform: i have nfi what is the psychology , is it like the nazi gold, 'we'll build a 4th reich and will need it' or how.
amberglint: what's '4th reich' even supposed to be?
asciilifeform: amberglint: think -- bolix bankrupt (for 2nd, and final time) ~20 yrs ago now. still no '4th reich'...

a111: Logged on 2018-09-19 21:53 asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i've nfi whether i have months , or years, but pretty sure that not likely decade. the only thing i presently know re the reich reaper, is that idjit reddit 'activism' substantially shortens life expectancy. hence 'stars' like wilson et al.

asciilifeform: ( genuine, imho, if dimwitted, enemy of the reich )
asciilifeform: nobody in nato reich owns worth shit.
asciilifeform: fwiw both '20s su and '30s reich followed this model.
asciilifeform: speaking of which, there was a 'designated' hobo who for 30 yrs sat on the pavement there, unmolested, with picket signs 'end nuke reich' or to that effect
asciilifeform: the moar militantly retarded inca reich becomes , the moar tcells will produce.
BingoBoingo: My own corner of the reich nuevo was a coarse meat sausage kinda corner
asciilifeform: hence 'nato reich'
asciilifeform: ( btw the m. rust wankage has deep undercurrent of scamola, word is the gorby personally ordered 'not shoot', didn't want his fellating of nato reich disrupted by 'incident', then flunkies took the blame )
asciilifeform: ( relatedly, iirc there's a vintage ro trilema re how reich-style policing increases street theft , by making fertile fields for smalltime crime , but can't seem to unearth it )
