They act like ...
I was pondering why tech-tyrants are so ferociously and lethally aristocratic.
Why do they treate all non-tyrants as Negative Externalities suitable for EXTERMINATION? They act like ....
Oh. Got it.
They act like DOTHEADS.
Or more precisely they act like the type of dotheads I knew at universities. Not the Patel caste who run motels.
And there's the answer. Dotheads have a ferocious and lethal caste system. They carry it wherever they move, and when they take over an industry their caste mind takes over the industry as well.
Dotheads are a fairly recent import, and we've received only two groups. The academic types who are top-caste assholes, and the Patels who are shopkeepers. We haven't imported any of the lower castes.
Does this apply to other immigrant groups? It certainly appies to Jews in my experience. I've known academic Jews and shopkeeper Jews. The shopkeeper Jews are good
people. Warm, humorous, family-oriented, treating customers and employees with respect and love. The academic Jews are top-caste aristocrats. Cold, snobbish, bigoted, exclusive, dismissive. (I think the shopkeepers are mainly from Russia and the academics are mainly from Germany, but that could be a poor correlation.)
Our corporate structure used to include shopkeeper Jews. Now it's all academic Jews. Top-caste cold bigoted dismissive aristocrats.
Earlier immigrant groups were mainly low-caste types in their native lands. Africans at the bottom of the stack were slaves in Africa, and were brought over here as slaves. The main surge of Irish immigrants were failed farmers. Most of the Italians who came here were miners or shopkeepers. We didn't receive native aristocrats, so we didn't have a chance to be ruled by them.
