There is still a ship stuck in the Suez Canal, which is blocking all traffic in a waterway that handles 10% of all global shipping.
The media blamed the wind.
You would really have to be a moron to believe that.
The container ship is the size of the Empire State Building, and it is really lodged in there good.
The ship’s name is the “Ever Given,” though it says “Evergreen” on the side of it. It’s a Japanese ship being leased by a Taiwanese company, but one would think the crew is not yellow.
Certainly, the people trying to get it unstuck are not yellow. Or white.
It’s a party of Egyptians.
For those who may not know, a canal is a manmade waterway connecting two natural bodies of water.
The Suez Canal is the only direct way to get from Asia to Europe by sea. Without it, you’d have to go all the way around Africa.
The canal was of course dug in the 1800s by Arabian sand farmers.
No wait, sorry – I meant the French.
The Suez Canal (Arabic: قناة السويس qanāt as-suwēs) is an artificial sea-level waterway in Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea through the Isthmus of Suez and dividing Africa and Asia. Constructed between 1859 and 1869 by the Suez Canal Company formed by Ferdinand de Lesseps in 1858, it officially opened on 17 November 1869. The canal offers watercraft a more direct route between the North Atlantic and northern Indian oceans via the Mediterranean and Red seas, thus avoiding the South Atlantic and southern Indian oceans and reducing the journey distance from the Arabian Sea to Asia by approximately 8,900 kilometres (5,500 mi), or 8-10 days. It extends from the northern terminus of Port Said to the southern terminus of Port Tewfik at the city of Suez. Its length is 193.30 km (120.11 mi) including its northern and southern access-channels. In 2020, over 18,500 vessels traversed the canal (an average of 51.5 per day).
Ferdinand de Lesseps.
What a guy.
Imagine that there was a time when white men used to do things other than cower in fear as they work to provide for ungrateful women and colored people.
Imagine the days of adventure!
What was much more shocking than the boondoggle itself is that the people at Bloomberg found it surprising (or thought their readers would find it surprising).
Chris Bryant writes of the boondoggle for Bloomberg:
It’s also a reminder that even an advanced civilization like ours has points of acute vulnerability. In the strategy and military realm, such bottlenecks are also known as “choke points.” And we often don’t pay enough attention to them until something goes wrong.
Systems designers strive to avoid these single points of failure, so that transport, energy and communication networks are able to withstand attacks or unexpected calamities. (The twin crashes involving a Boeing 737 Max are one example of a flawed design — a single sensor gave faulty readings to the plane’s automated flight system.) Technological advances and globalization were also supposed to make us less susceptible to this type of problem. The internet, for example, was conceived as a decentralized system that’s pretty difficult to break, as was Bitcoin.
But global infrastructure, defined broadly, still has a surprising number of pinch points. These can be difficult to remedy, as creating back-up options is expensive and counteracts economies of scale. In some cases, the problem is even getting worse: Industries are becoming more concentrated due to corporate takeovers.
Furthermore, big chunks of our lives are now mediated by a just handful of technology companies. Nokia Oyj, Ericsson AB and China’s Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd control about 60% of the telecoms equipment market, for example.
He goes on to explain that the entire global technological infrastructure is all just a series of chokepoints, and that eventually, we’re all going to choke to death on them. This is of course primarily due to the monopoly-based economic system of the Western democracy system, which does not look kindly on any form of competition.
Beyond all of the infrastructure chokepoints that are being choked out and cockblocked by diversity, we also have social chokepoints. Forcing the entire Western world into poverty and then telling them the solution is to get a sex change is a chokehold.
People are going to start breaking down, as they choke on coronavirus restrictions.
They’re now saying three masks only provides 90% protection.
If it’s only 90% effective, that means at any time you have a 10% chance of dying of the deadly coronavirus and especially the new mutant strain that is even more deadly.
Will we hit a chokepoint at four masks?
Maybe five masks is the chokepoint?
Some number of masks is going to choke you.
We’re also about to hit a chokepoint of multiculturalism, a chokepoint of social policy, which is going to lead to some kind of intense civil conflict. Then you could end up hitting a chokepoint as to what exactly the police and military are able to do to control a population that is no longer governable.
The Democrat Party has recently hit a chokepoint at the border, which they thought they could just open up completely and let people pour in unhindered.
Joe Biden recently hit a chokepoint on the stairs.
Affirmative action is going to hit a chokepoint, which is symbolized by these millions of Arabs trying to figure out how to get that boat unstuck from that canal. These people have very limited intelligence and ability to perform actions, and yet companies are talking about replacing their entire boards with African tribespeople.
The media and the tech industry are attempting to put everyone in an informational chokehold by widely restricting not just entire categories of thought but entire categories of information, and we’re likely going to hit a chokepoint where society can’t function with so little access to accurate information.
To summarize the questions posed as to when we choke:
- How much can one man take?
- How much can society take?
- What happens if chaos emerges?
- How diversified can the positions of power get and the technological society still function?
- Can a chairlift be attached to the Air Force One stairs?
- What is the minimal amount of awareness that the general public can have about what is happening in reality without reaching a chokepoint?
No one has any answers to these questions, and it is becoming increasingly clear that our ruling class is so decadent and self-assured that they are not asking these questions at all.
The good news is that hopefully the world will soon be dominated by Chinese merchants, who will deliver value at low, low prices. China’s “One Belt, One Road Initiative” is actually misleadingly titled, as it has more than one belt and more than one road.
Everyone will get everything they need and feel happy, long time. Thank you, please have a happy time of feeling nice kindness and cannot committing an illegal actions.
Of course, the entire leadership of the Western world looks at that map and starts having seizures. The idea of an ordered world based on commerce terrifies people who thrive on a world based on confusion, hatred, war and mental illness.
