They go straight into HR and PR and Diversity Training. Then they make the Policy, and tell the executives their political extremist policies are the new normal and expected to be followed.

Just like Academia. The Chemists and the Physicists do all the work, the Crit Lit people make all the rules.

In Any case, this already happened. From Google to the Linux Foundation.

There are two flavors of regret-hire, the Grievance Artist and the Non-Player Character.

You will accidentally hire many NPCs. Some will remain dormant forever, some will occasionally reveal their true masters with virtue signaling t-shirts or tut-tutting the latest news with mainstream media talking points, but they generally lack the independent thought to make any trouble.

If you hire one Grievance Artist, you will know. They will activate the sleeper cell of NPCs in the organization. They will sow discontent and manufacture crises. They will try to train up NPCs into being deputy Grievance Artists using the the playbook: first, Nihilism Lite; then on to concepts in Postmodernism; then Cultural Marxism as the cure; finally, Intersectional Victimology as the religion.

Try as you might to screen, you're gonna get some NPCs. You just have to make damn sure you never hire the Grievance Artist. Some warning signs: has a Twitter presence, has given or promoted talks on "equity", went to a SJW diploma mill like Evergreen or Oberlin, job history shows lots of sub-2-year stints, has the "dip a pet" bad faded dye job in wacky colors, has the nose "bull ring", has resting bitch face (RBF) or Soy Face, wants to introduce "codes of conduct" to an organization, ever casually uses any of the following words or phrases in an interview: "let's unpack that", "privilege", "hate speech", "marginalized", "underrepresented", "problematic", "diversity", "equity" (not "equality", and not equity in the financial sense).

That is absolutely accurate.

The main question for me is how to most effectively deal with it. The Grievance Artist is operating from her high horse of moral infallibility. Any objection to, say, diversity for its own sake (instead of competition based purely on individual merit) will be met with shrieks of moral outrage from the Grievance Artist and her NPC "sleeper cell" (excellent analogy).

IHLs used to be useful as enforcers to ride herd on the bitchy, manipulative females of the workplace. As unhappy dominant sadists, they were naturals. However, they never questioned the hierarchy. Now, they think they should run the place with the observed disastrous consequences.

Be a Capitalist. Start your own business. Move to pretty much anywhere other than San Francisco.


I'd rather say: take San Francisco back. Neither Grievance Artists nor NPCs are a majority in SF, contrary to popular opinion. There are still a silent majority of moderates, Classical Liberals, and Libertarians here. The problem is that they're cowed and afraid to speak their true thoughts when confronted with this nonsense. I'm not afraid, I'll tell the truth. I don't care if I lose my job. We should hire people who aren't afraid to express themselves, especially in the face of the NPC frown chorus. Spread the word.

Art and Music make Science, Technology, Engineering and Math ‘utterly pointless’ how do you figure?

Why the need for an acronym? It’s school for Christ Sakes, what is the point of taking all the subjects and creating an acronym to promote some sort of silly exclusiveness?

That’s some coastal elite nonsense right there.


It’s not just Arts and Music that they want to add in, its liberal arts in general art is a pretty vague thing. What is the point in making something to focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math if it’s just going to be diluted back down to nothing by including everything else? The whole point was to try to kick start creating more engineers and scientists because we have a shortage and a massive over abundance of liberal arts majors with pointless degrees.

STEM is the shittiest acronym on the face of the planet. Why try to group the disciplines?

Biologists suck at Chemistry
Chemists suck at Biology
Physicists suck at Biology
Biologists suck at Physics
Engineers suck at Chemistry
Mathematicians suck at Biology
Artists suck at everything other than art

We have some people that can crossover. For example, I am a Physical Chemist. There are also biochemists and biophysicists. But for the most part, my experience in academia is that people aren't even that proficient at their own discipline, let alone another. This acronym has become a source of frustration with me personally because the high schools are now hiring "STEM supervisors" which is usually double speak for "I suck at all sciences so I just tell people I'm STEM".

As far as SJW go, they've been at it for a good 20 years already. When I was in graduate school, nearly every fellowship was designed for a women or a minority. Whites and asian males were excluded from such awards. They were forced to slave away while the less qualified people were handed fellowships and pushed through the program. Moreover, if you are a female, and have a 3.5, you can get into any grad school you want for Physics, Chemistry, or Engineering. Harvard, MIT, no problem. You are automatically accepted. Guys...the odds probably go down 95%.

How quickly we forget. Actually, the equal opportunity hall pass for minorities and women has been going on since 1970 or so. Wait, you mean 48 years of this shit isn't long enough for them to 'catch up'?

This means it has been going on for 20 percent of the time our country has been in existence.

Active discrimination against high achieving white males and Asians is nearly 50 years old, and SJWs act like it just started yesterday. They are calling for even MORE discrimination.

"Regents of University of California v. Bakke (1978)

In Regents of University of California v. Bakke (1978), the Supreme Court ruled that a university's use of racial "quotas" in its admissions process was unconstitutional, but a school's use of "affirmative action" to accept more minority applicants was constitutional in some circumstances."

In other words, the first time it was litigated all the way to SCOTUS was 1978. Racial quotas were deemed "unconstitutional", and yet, they are ubiquitous to this day.

Yeah, Donald Knuth — PhD in Mathematics — sure did suck at computers!

You've practically answered the question right there. Those with a STEM background specializing in one area won't be experts in other areas, but at least they have some general background in the other areas and a general background needed to understand and be easily trained in other areas at a basic level. Plus, those with STEM degrees probably at least did something in their life that was intellectually difficult.

Perhaps you missed the part where I said there a few who can bridge the gap. For the most part, those that specialize in a subject like Chemistry are not even required to take biology. Degrees with the acronym stem in it end up taking watered down versions of every class and end up being proficient at nothing.

Why do you say that?

Are you denying that we are currently engaged in an Economic war with Communist China?

Or that our American Veterans fought in wars exclusively against Asians?


We are in a trade was with China. And I am all for policies against China the country. As an Asian American born here, your comments would be considered offensive. Not that I care...most Asians don't. That's why we are discriminated against in the first place. But it doesn't matter because Asians in general just keep working to get ahead. You seem to be equating Asians Americans with China.
