When SJWs get the run of the place

Apparently these assclowns cater exclusively to the "douchebag" market. That's the only way I can explain why they're all dressed like vaginal cleansing aids.
Does anyone else find it highly ironic that a company that specialises in telling other people what to do, is now telling its own people to not act like jackasses?
Human-resources software company Zenefits had to send an uncomfortable HR email to their own to staff recently following a few incidents within their San Francisco office. 
The startup, which launched less than three years ago but was evaluated last May at $4.5 billion, was forced to ban staff from drinking in the office after some wild parties that involved employees having sex in the stairwell of the building, according to emails obtained by The Wall Street Journal. 
The emails, sent around last summer by Zenefits Director of Real Estate and Workplace Services, Emily Agin, described the situation of employees having sex at work as 'crude behavior'. 
'It has been brought to our attention by building management and Security that the stairwells are being used inappropriately….Cigarettes, plastic cups filled with beer, and several used condoms were found in the stairwell. Yes, you read that right,' the email said. 
'Do not use the stairwells to smoke, drink, eat, or have sex. [People actually have to be told this?!?]
'Please respect building and company policy and use common sense…' [Insert Deadpool reference here...]
The alcohol ban was officially brought in last week by Zenefits's new chief executive, David Sacks. 
Sacks said it is important to cultivate a more mature work atmosphere in a staff memo that was sent around last Wednesday. 
The memo acknowledged how 'it is too difficult to define and parse what is 'appropriate' versus 'inappropriate' drinking in the office'. [Dude. Seriously?!]
Some reports said that sales staff would gather together and do a shot when a new client was signed. 
Indeed the party culture was blamed for the exit of Sacks' predecessor, Parker Conrad, as CEO at the start of the month. 
In announcing Conrad's resignation to staff in a memo, Sacks pointedly said: 'The fact is that many of our internal processes, controls, and actions around compliance have been inadequate, and some decisions have just been plain wrong. As a result, Parker has resigned.' 
In commenting on the alcohol ban on Monday, Zenefits spokesman Kenneth Baer said it was all part of taking the company forward following the introduction of Sacks. 
Baer said in a statement to the WSJ: 'As Zenefits' new CEO has made clear, it is time to turn the page at Zenefits and embrace a new set of corporate values and culture. Zenefits is now focused on developing business practices that will ensure compliance with all regulatory requirements, and making certain that the company operates with integrity as its number-one value.'
Ah, the sweet and delicious taste of schadenfreude. The only thing that could possibly be better would be a nice chilled goblet of SJW blood. As Vox Day likes to say, drinking the stuff does wonders for one's ability to get important shit done in a hurry.

The SJWs who are currently running wild through the halls of Zenefits are now realising that their ridiculous antics come with a bit of a price.

Speaking of His Evilness, I do believe that I am forced to offer up a very minor correction to one of his books.

If you have read his seminal work, SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police, you may remember that about halfway through the book, he wrote:
SJWs don't begin by storming an institution en masse, breaking down the doors and sacrificing the secretary in the lobby to Satan before defecating on the carpets and copulating madly on the table in the meeting room.
Well, with all possible respect to the Supreme Dark Overlord, he may have gotten things just slightly wrong in this one particular case. Evidently, at Zenefits at least, it is standard practice to drive out the CEO, smoke and drink within the stairwells, and screw with abandon- clients, propriety, and simple professional decency be damned.

Of course, he was referring to companies that SJWs are currently infiltrating, not ones that are actually run by SJWs in the first place. So it is perfectly reasonable to give him the benefit of the doubt there.

Based on the evidence provided by companies like Twitter and Zenefits, it becomes very clear that when SJWs take over and start running companies, things very rapidly go to pot. (In the case of Zenefits, I'm guessing that pot is literally, and liberally, in use in the stairwells.)

I don't know how the parents of the people who work at Zenefits were raised. I do know that my parents generally tried very hard to raise me with a certain sense of what is, and is not, appropriate behaviour in a place of business. I think it is fair to say that they (mostly) succeeded. To the best of my knowledge, I have never been told off for, uh, disreputable conduct in the stairwells of any company that I've ever worked for. Nor can I recall ever being drunk on the job- though admittedly, if I ever were drunk, I very probably wouldn't recall it.

Rude and acerbic commentary aside, Zenefits is one rather good example of what happens when you let the SocJus types run rampant. Eventually, they will take over. Eventually, anyone with even a shred of sense and decency will be forced to confront the fact that he works in a place that might charitably be described as a circus.

And eventually, the adults will have to step in to restore order and sanity.

When SJWs take over a company, venture, or group, what you will inevitably see:

  • A rapid deterioration in the quality and efficiency of what used to be produced;
  • Politicisation of every possible aspect of daily existence;
  • Directives, policies, and ideas that become exponentially more absurd and idiotic by the day;
  • Bizarre shifts away from focusing on tangible and realistic measures of success- such as profits, cash flow, user base, satisfaction surveys, and so on- to completely intangible measures that no one can possibly understand

We are seeing a classic example of this unfolding before our eyes right now. The Twatter fiasco continues to get more absurd by the day, as Twitter's Committee for Public Safety Trust and Safety Council appears to be doing... well, exactly what loony leftists do. Twitter's current management appears to have no problem whatsoever with using their version of the banhammer to get rid of conservatives, insufficiently leftist liberals, and pretty much anyone else that isn't in the "cool crowd".

Now, here's the thing: both Zenefits and Twitter are private companies. They have every right to do whatever the hell they want in order to abuse and mistreat their customers, their employees, and their investors.

They absolutely DO NOT have the right to be absolved of all of the consequences for their actions.

Companies like Twitter and Zenefits continue to be absurdly overvalued relative to their true value. In the case of Zenefits, I have a rather hard time believing that an HR software company that came into being just three years ago could possibly be selling products so amazing, so different, so far ahead of the competition, as to be worth $4.5 billion. And in the case of Twatter... well, I don't use social media, other than LinkedIn (and that too only very sparsely), so I honestly have absolutely no idea what people see in it.

In both cases, and in the case of every company that eventually undergoes SJW convergence, the great news for us is that inevitably, someone will come along with a better set of ideas and a better way of doing things.

Remember a company called Yahoo!? They got themselves a rather fetching lady CEO a few years ago... and look what happened to them. They stopped focusing on the boring but important things like profits and revenues, and instead chased crazy ideas that didn't have a snowflake's chance in Hell of succeeding.

And now look at them. According to data from Statista, as of October 2015, they were surpassed by Microsoft's Bing engine in terms of search engine usage.

Just how horrible does a big search engine have to be in order to be considered worse than BING?!

And in Yahoo!'s case, competitors are catching up in a very great hurry. DuckDuckGo is probably a search engine that you have never heard of. If you haven't, I would highly recommend giving it a test-drive. I use it as my default search engine both at home and at work. It does not track your results; most ads are scrubbed beforehand (and can be scrubbed completely when using a simple free ad-blocker in your browser); it's extremely fast; and the results are presented in a nice, easy format.

The same will happen to Twitter. Someone else will come along and create a far better microblogging, advertising, and no-holds-barred conversation platform that doesn't adopt cowardly shadowbanning tactics to silence those that management doesn't agree with. It's already happening.

Ultimately, no company is immune to O'Sullivan's Law: "Any organisation or enterprise that is not expressly right-wing will become left-wing over time". But we right-wing nut-jobs are learning. It's taking a clue-bat and quite a few nut-shots to make us understand it, but right-wingers are rapidly coming to understand that the only way to handle a progressive seeking entry into our organisations is to offer a swift boot up the arse.

Eventually, I believe that we will build stable, free, open-source, and exceptionally richly-featured alternatives to many of these left-wing pet projects- but in such a way as to make it very difficult, if not impossible, for them to infiltrate and take over. And when that happens- progressives had better watch out, because they are suddenly going to realise that the old conservative tactics of rolling over and playing dead in order to avoid being called racist, sexist, homophobic, or whatever, aren't working anymore.
