THE VERMIN IS DYING Stormtrooper 09/16/2020 (Wed) 17:08:46 No.3574
https://archive.md/pICww 91% YOY, from $5.4 billion to $460 million
>thinking pedophile kikes will allow one of their biggest propaganda makers to fail
>>3575 The internet and Netflix is proving more worthwhile in that area anyway. Only way Yidsney can survive this trainwreck now is if the retarded cunts in Congress decide to bail them out... However because of the whole China controversy, it could go either way.
>>3576 > IF the retarded cunts in Congress decide to bail them out... However because of the whole China controversy, it could go either way. Do you really expect congress to do the right thing? Disney will not only be bailed out by tax payers they will get nice bonuses, absorb more media, get more government favors and continue to make low grade propaganda until this society collapses.
>>3576 Couldn't disney just sell something like Fox (which they only bought to get the X-men movie rights) or the Jim Henson Company to try and recoup some of their losses? Obviously they'll never give up their cash cows Marvel and Lucasfilms, but they own enough shit that they could just have a yard sale and be back above board.
Who else thinks it was yidsney+?
>>3598 Is Disney+ really that unpopular? I thought it was the only part of disney that was doing well until Mulan came along
>>3599 As far as I've heard a lot of people used the free trait subscription to watch the cuckdalorian and then canceled their sub.
>>3583 I still can't get over how utterly retarded TLJ was. I don't think I've ever seen a movie that made me go >uhh, ok.....? as many times as TLJ.
>>3633 Sounds like you just didn't like having your expectation subverted, bigot.

>>3654 >28,000 being laid off because Corona's fucking their resorts into the dirt >18,760 are part time, that means 9,240 were full time employees >during the 1st 3 months of corona Yidsney's profit dropped 91% >disney reports that they lost billions of dollars during the first weeks of corona I'm actually starting to like the Chinese now. Thanks for eating bats
>>3656 This is the second biggest layoff this year. At this rate management of the parks will fall into even further decay.
>>3655 >>3656 thank you.
Calling it now: An unusually high proportion of the layoffs were blacks (b/c, well, blacks ofc). There will be yuge class-action + burnlootmurder riots at Disney corporate.

So pic related is finally a reality?
>>3659 >There will be yuge class-action + burnlootmurder riots at Disney corporate We can only hope.
>>3671 Considering all they layoffs, being cutoff from foreign tourists, and the massive spending for FOX, its not looking good.
>>3659 >An unusually high proportion of the layoffs were blacks I'm gonna spread this rumor as far and wide as I can. If it turns out to be true, Disney gets burned down. If it's false, all the idiots going on about "hwite privilege" get discredited. It's win-win.
>>3575 It's a vast communist, Jewish, capitalist, fascist, liberal, conservative, white, satanic, catholic conspiracy, I tell ya.

>>5691 gay af
>>5691 The entire experience is scheduled for you as well - you don't even get to choose how you spend your own time there. I can't imagine paying five thousand north american dollar menu coupons for this shit.
>>3724 The rich and powerful would NEVER hurt children :^)
>>5691 Disney Reveals “Captain Keevan” Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Character https://archive.md/EpO0H Its a gift that gives on giving.
>>5778 >>5780 This looks more like a shitcanned Dr Who episode than anything you'd see in Star Wars
>>3574 Does not matter. It's not business anymore. It's zombie business, and for zombies losing money is not a problem. See the primer on zombie economics from Unca Moldbug: www.unqualified-reservations.org/2009/04/america-zombie-nation/
>>6057 This was an amazing read. I'd heard of Moldbug before, and when I read a summary of his views, I found myself agreeing with pretty much all points. But this particular write-up really nails it. I've long had the vague feeling that something was drastically wrong with our economy and society as we know it, and this captures the whole mess with perfect clarity. It also perfectly explains the SJW takeover of entire industries, which is zombie business to a T. Definitely need to delve further in.
>>6057 >>6066 >In true charity, affection is always matched by obedience. If B surrenders himself to the care of A, he becomes a ward of A. A, his sponsor, assumes the obligation to support him, and also takes responsibility for any misdeeds B may commit while under his sponsorship. In return, B gives up his freedom, or at least his freedom to disregard the wishes of A. This is complete bullshit. There's never been any degree of control implied in charity, and without entirely denying art as a concept and all cultural achievement you can't presume that patrons are seeking to limit those patronized to their own capacities. >So, for example, Steve Sailer asks: where was capitalism? Why wasn’t anyone betting against these loans, and driving them down to their true value? The housing bubble was created literally by the government forcing loans to be issued, and those unnatural loans were tied up in the genuine value of the companies issuing them (under duress). Those companies value did decrease, insofar as they weren't bailed out (which they were).
>>6067 I'm still absorbing this, but >This is complete bullshit. There's never been any degree of control implied in charity, and without entirely denying art as a concept and all cultural achievement you can't presume that patrons are seeking to limit those patronized to their own capacities. The meaning I took is that proper patronage enforces high standards on the recipient. Patronage is not zombified in itself, but it can become that way. For example, patronage of the arts in Early Modern Europe created some of the greatest artistic achievements, because guys like Mozart and Michelangelo were patronized by the nobility and clergy, who demanded a high standard. SJW media, on the other hand, can fuck around and churn out trash while still being funded. The difference is in discipline, I think.
>>6068 >because guys like Mozart and Michelangelo were patronized by the nobility and clergy, who demanded a high standard. You can't demand a high standard; you can't actually enforce standards of quality on an artist in the sense that you'll get something meeting that standard. The same reason you don't pay someone to make you a non-ornate table and then risk getting a pile of splinters, but you do risk getting a pile of splinters if you commission a table without being involved in it's design applies in almost every case of artistic innovation or genius; there is no second (or third) party to comment on the functionality of the design before it's completed because it's breaking new ground nor are there fungible tables to serve as replacements or to buy outright. I guess the equivalent of buying a pre-existing table would be the church continuing to use the same hymns as it had for hundreds of years for many cases. >SJW media, on the other hand, can fuck around and churn out trash while still being funded. The difference is in discipline, I think. But the SJW media can easily be serving the purpose for which it is being funded. There's both agenda driven trash (trash to outsiders, I guess) and incidental trash. I agree with your analysis of moldbug's point: >The meaning I took is that proper patronage enforces high standards on the recipient. But that point is wrong. Patronage should be practiced with discipline, but the discipline is on the part of the patron who must make judgements about the character and earnestness of the artist. The artist is never actually restrained and for good reason: the entire point of funding them is that they are acting outside of the domain of competence of the patron.
>>6069 You make good points. I guess the "zombie economy" is really an issue of the wrong creators/producers being patronized? Anyway, I'm reading the introductory texts on there, and I'm seeing a solid analysis of neo-colonialism and the fictions we live under.
>>6067 >>6068 First, it's not a true charity either, since the patron does receive value from it: a status boost. Second, it's still a patronage relationship, so the principle applies. Let's conduct a little mental experiment: Michelangelo starts consuming funny shrooms recently imported by sea, and abruptly switches his genre to crustacean porn (look up "lobsta girl" sometimes, with brain bleach within easy reach, of course). Since it's not early XXI century USA at all, this gonna cause trouble. Including loss of face for the Patron of Arts, through no fault of his. If the patron noticed this before too late, what we could expect in this situation? Assuming we have a good idea of the era (via books like The Machiavellians by James Burnham or History of Florence by Niccolo Machiavelli himself). Most likely, the patron's men would gently abduct Michelangelo and quietly move him to some village far from foreign hallucinogenic substances and painting supplies for a while. The unfinished "innovative" work would accidentally catch fire, fortunately put out before anything else is damaged.
>>6067 >>6069 >>6156 If Isaac Baruch is anything to base things on, I suspect patron and artist would more likely be sharing drugs than anything.
