Brett Stevens on Hairy Harvey Weinstein By Charles Taylor
After his jail sentence being delivered by the court, old Harvey was admitted to hospital with chest pains, maybe a heart attack coming. Who would not get chest pains from all that Me-tooism! On this Brett Stevens sums it up in his admirably brutal, concise style:
“Egalitarian systems favor victims because they, at the left side of the bell curve, are those to whom benefits flow from those on the right side. As a result, we have elevated victims to special status because they are the new elite. In my view, Harvey Weinstein did not have any victims; he had dupes, or mooks who played the game to get ahead in Hollywood and then lost. They knew that Hollywood, which makes its money by attention … has long had a tradition of producers and investors treating its women like prostitutes. They took the gamble: offer sex in exchange for getting ahead in the industry. For some, this did not work out, since they did not have whatever mix of talent, charisma, dedication, and luck is required to become a big name. They faced an ugly choice between admitting failure and scapegoating someone else, and now they get their fifteen minutes in the sun. I doubt anyone cares that Harvey Weinstein is off the streets, since he has already made money for the people who matter, or that any of his remaining wealth will be siphoned off to these … victims. However, the trend toward victimhood shows us a dying civilization where no one believes in its future and everyone is trying to scrabble for enough money to escape.”
The creepy old guy must have upset someone higher up the elite food chain, since his treatment of women is standard by the elites, and no doubt mild compared to what they get up to as the now forgotten Epstein paedo saga showed.
