Understanding Yang Gang | 1791


Until Andrew Yang, few, if any, candidates
were talking about the rise of automation, spiraling birth rates, and historic rates
of addiction and mental illness. His first appearances such as those on Sam
Harris’ podcast didn’t generate much buzz. At that point, he was among the unlikeliest
of candidates for the Democratic nomination. Like many obscure figures before him, his
appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience caused a massive boost of public awareness. But it isn’t necessarily the Democratic
base rallying around him, which is far too busy with the politics of intersectionality. That much is to be expected when a huge number
of people who discover you come from Joe’s much more centrist podcast. It’s those who have a vague sense that these
issues are on the horizon, many of whom happen to be on the right. That a great number of those curious in the
candidacy of Andrew Yang aren’t on the left might come as a surprise to casual onlookers. After all, his single-issue mission of a universal
basic income sounds a lot more like socialist redistributionism rather than the blind allegiance
to free markets that overtook the right following the Reagan Revolution. Which more or less brings us to the rise of
the #YangGang meme’s newfound virality, and its connected meme of Potato Trump. Yang is riding a wave similar to that of Tucker
Carlson’s following his debate with Ben Shapiro on these same subjects. As a candidate, Donald Trump captured the
same mood in a roundabout way, through is hardline stances on immigration, his pledges
to restore manufacturing industries, and his efforts to attack the opiate crisis plaguing
those areas of the country. Yang goes a step further with his pledge to
tackle the opiate crisis even to the point of prosecuting pharmaceutical executives responsible. Trump ran on a platform of “only me.” Repeatedly he would famously tell us that
“only he” could fix any host of problems which have plagued the country for decades. Beyond the appointment of judges, he’s arguably
done little toward capturing the nostalgia behind “Making America Great Again.” At this point in Trump’s presidency, especially,
there’s a felt sense that the country is moving away from that vision regardless of
who is elected. As is well understood, Trump relied upon white
American support and frustrations in order to coast his way to narrow success. What makes Yang a unique outlier on the left
is that he’s neededly pointed out that among white Americans deaths now outnumber births
– a clear marker of familial decline. A
widespread notion exists in the brainy establishment ranks of Republicans and libertarians that
so long as we have cheap hamburgers and electronics, American communities can just be replaced
by new immigrants. That core communities of Americans can vanish
in the span of a few decades, an unprecedented development in this country, without vast
social ramifications–such as the ones we’re already witnessing. The reasons these events are unfolding are
incredibly complex and can be traced to no one development, but it can be said that this
isn’t a viable long-term solution. These problems can potentially be addressed
through tailored incentive structures to promote family creation, such as those which have
been promoted by Hungary and Israel. Trump has spent no time devoted to this subject
for some apparent reason, as though it is without dignity to address any subset of Americans
experiencing the evaporation of their communities. For this reason, some of Trump’s previously
most devoted followers are questioning their support of someone who looks a lot more like
George W. Bush than 2015 Donald Trump. This became glaringly obvious after the Trump
administration’s abject failure on his signature issue, as February marked a 12 year high for
illegal immigration. Because of a collective sense of social disintegration
and nihilism among the Trump base, the overall rationale behind the shift to Yang simply
boils down to this: if the country will veer in that direction anyway, we may as well strive
to not spend our days in economic insecurity–especially if your political views lean right, which
can literally cost you your job. But it isn’t just economic concerns that
has drawn support to Yang from the right. In response to a rising tide of technological
censorship, President Donald Trump, who far-leftists have called to be banned on many social media
platforms–including Twitter– is fundamentally uninterested in addressing this issue, only
advising fellow Republicans to “be good.” In stark contrast, Andrew Yang has gone as
far to say that social media conglomerates should be trust-busted for their mass-censorship
campaigns. Where you come down on that debate is besides
the point: it’s obviously more favorable to conservatives who obviously face the brunt
of censorship with no clear solution on the horizon. It’s largely for these reasons that pointing
to any one particular left wing policy listed on Yang’s website is viewed as irrelevant
by his right wing supporters. If even under a firebrand Republican administration
the country moves leftward, spending more than ever before, receiving more illegal immigrants
than under Obama, and seeing more technological censorship, why should a candidate willing
to tackle the issues of censorship and job displacement be written off? To the people running the meme factories that
have spurred the online appeal of Yang, Trump has failed to address these issues in any
serious way, while Yang is openly positioning himself as the one to do it–with the previously
mentioned $1000/mo “Freedom Dividend.” Roughly speaking, our economy is divided into
a few sectors: raw materials, manufacturing, and the service industry. Because America is a highly advanced economy,
it’s the service industry which produces most of our economic output. Obviously, this has been unprecedentedly disruptive
for communities that have historically relied upon the first two sectors. Libertarians cite these developments as being
positive; after all, they say, that signifies that we don’t have to engage in grueling
labor, and can instead focus on enjoying the fruit of that expanding economic pie. Materially, this is true. Regardless of this fact, you still have to
earn those goods by generating economic value. If we’re going to transition away from human
labor at an unprecedented rate, we must find a new way to manage the social and economic
costs that those displaced in a matter of years will inevitably bear the cost of. You could argue, as many do compellingly,
that predictions of massive human replacement by automation are grossly overestimated. After all, they point out, people have been
displaced by all sort of innovations (usually pointed to is the horse and buggy), but that
isn’t an argument against improving the country’s well-being as a whole. After all, people’s sense of purpose and
meaning is in large part derived from jobs and the feeling that they’re providing for
their families, not from how cheaply they can stream a tv show. And as many are quick to eject out of their
mouths, the rise of automation does mean cheaper products and services, but what’s missed
is the compromise that is made. The clear compromise is a country where new
jobs that are created are, not only less cognitively accessible, but more isolated and temporary. Today, one in five jobs are held by a person
under contract and within a decade, contractors and freelancers could make up half of the
American workforce. As a matter of practical reality, the formation
of local bonds, community, and camaraderie will always be put on the back burner in favor
of market efficiency – the next temporary gig. Being that the market itself is morally neutral,
and instead merely a means of meeting consumer demand as efficiently as possible, the disintegration
we are seeing manifested is a result of human choices as libertarians rush to point out. While it’s not the role of the state to
block this, shaping the incentive structure in a way where it makes sense for average
people to make choices that foster family and community would result in a healthier
country. How that is addressed or implemented is a
question that runs as deep as any. What’s as difficult to address is the reality
that jobs are becoming much, much more complex. One possible solution put forward to minimize
these effects is that we can begin a massive job retraining program. But these already exist, and the results aren’t
promising to say the least. This is a fact Andrew Yang addresses headlong,
correctly citing that the TAA, a federal jobs retraining program, found that only 37% of
program members were working in the field for which they were trained. That doesn’t paint an optimistic picture
if libertarian predictions about the state of the economy in 15 years don’t pan out
and it should certainly concern conservatives who allegedly prioritize the formation of
families above all else. More hardlined figures in this debate like
Tucker Carlson suggest we halt automation entirely, which some could potentially view
as far too heavy handed. Alternatively we can seek out a sophisticated
answer to the most complex issues any society has had to rise to meet. If we’re to be freed from human labor through
automation to make cheaper products, the consumers of those free markets have to have a means
by which to pay for them. In other words, in an economy of humanless
hyperproductivity, one can’t simply compete with machines. A good thought experiment in favor of various
disruptive and, on paper, terrible technological innovations is highlighted by the example
a professor gave to his class. Asking, “if an invention were offered that
would transform the economy and revolutionize economic efficiency, but in exchange we had
to sacrifice 40,000 lives a year, would politicians permit it?” The resounding response of the class was “definitely
not.” The professor then informed them that we do,
and it is, of course, the automobile. If you are someone who is inclined to reject
the forward trajectory of industry, what you might take from this is a criticism of cars. What that presents is the classic observation
by French economist Frederic Bastiat from his essay “That Which is Seen, and That
Which is Not Seen.” What we see are the 40,000 deaths directly
taken in consequence of automobiles; what are not seen and cannot be calculated are
the untold number of lives saved from the safe and quick transportation of services
such as medicine, emergency medical responses, and essential goods more broadly. Knowing where and how to draw this line will
be an eternal problem for humanity, but in the coming decades it will be like no time
before in human history as the rate of technological change goes parabolic. Even if flawed, it’s a conversation that
no candidate is having, and Andrew Yang is a positive inclusion in the culture and Democratic
debates if not for any other reason than this. Even further, as a strong advocate for vocational
schools, Yang may serve as a voice of reason in a party that wants to drive every American
through college to receive useless degrees. Unfortunately, far too many in the establishmentarian
and libertarian wings of the GOP look at any non-conventional solution to the issue of
cognitive stratification with shock and dismay. Andrew Yang frequently and correctly cites
Chicago School Economist and libertarian sweetheart Milton Friedman as a proponent of a UBI, as
well as numerous founding fathers in their advocacy of a form of it. Self-identified libertarian scholar, Charles
Murray is a vocal supporter of it, dedicating an entire book on the subject, titled “In
Our Hands: A Plan to Replace the Welfare State.” That subtitle, “A Plan to Replace the Welfare
State”, is where some of its support from the right comes. It’s for this reason that the reflexive
libertarian gesticulation that this is an example of “socialism!” doesn’t hold
water and is simply inadequate. In theory, people like Friedman and Murray
endorse the UBI or its related proposal, a negative income tax, as a means of shifting
entitlements that leave vulnerable people dependent on the state to a form of independence. There are a variety of problems associated
with this argument. Even if the numbers added up (a contested
subject), it misses the fact that conservatives rightly recognize: people derive their primary
source of meaning from gainful and rewarding employment. The counterargument to this reality is that
at $1k/mo you’d still be beneath the poverty line, which wouldn’t remove the incentive
to work. It’s a fascinating thought experiment, at
a minimum, and that’s why so many on the right on the wide plane of social media have
become Yang-curious. Even assuming the math worked out, the appeal
of Yang transcends his policy prescriptions. At least $1000 is an entertaining thought
experiment; what would ensue if people were totally freed from scarcity–the problem economics
is trying to answer in the first place? It could solve a number of social issues such
as exploitative relationships or ease the transition from an unsatisfying job to another
one. But it doesn’t answer many, many more, such
as the spiritual malaise this country is undergoing that Yang understands. He identifies the pervasive depression and
disillusionment of the youth. That harkening to a brighter, more optimistic
past is what offered a lot of young people a reprieve in Make America Great Again, whatever
it is that you believe it signifies. At a minimum it is a rebuke of the factual
reality of social suicide we’re seeing spike rapidly. In the last few decades, there has been a
lot of concern over the societal “Death of the West” as Patrick Buchanan’s book
and Jonah Goldberg’s “Suicide of the West” label it respectively. In some cases you can judge a book by its
cover. Though Trump and Yang stand in stark contrast
to each other philosophically, to their supporters they read the writing on the wall, even as
figures and outlets like Human Progress, Steven Pinker, and Ben Shapiro insist upon impotently
reminding us of how optimistic we should be as our countrymen sink deeper and deeper into
a spiritual and, increasingly literal, suicide.

    Lol, Trump failed to stem illegal immigration. That's mildly simplified. That's like saying Native Americans/First Nations failed to avoid new world colonialism. Has any executive ever faced a more concerted effort to be stymied at every turn? Even the RINOs fought him with both houses in the red. You can watch hours of speeches over multiple decades encouraging, praising and demanding border and immigration enforcement GIVEN by the very same people today directly impeding immigration enforcement. Honk much?

    The Mafiosi at the top sucking society dry are happy to collude with the globalists in the destruction of this country. It lines their pockets while weakening their serf adversaries. And the OneWorlders love the financial support. In many cases it's two sides of the same coin. We have the Estates General all over again. All this crap is orchestrated and Trump came along and screwed it all up being a loud buffoon. The last hiccup of a dying once truly mighty empire succumbing to the Gibbme Brigades and the Handout Hoard.

    The true currency of a stable republic is morality: that agreements be sacred, that we do what we say. Very few at the helm have any integrity any longer, and half the country at large has all but lost the meaning of the word. Remember that "by any means necessary" is the death knell of integrity and subsequently liberty… Yang thinks it's necessary to pay people $12,000/year.

    I think a good solution to slowing automation down, is reducing or removing the minimum wage laws. That way companies are less incentivised to automate since the cheap labour, would be cheap. However, this of course has to come along with reducing the inflation somehow… in any case, it's a very, very complex issue.

    UBI is the future, robotics takes most jobs. Humans can now focus on advancement and saving the planet. With all the smartest people not doing pointless jobs, humanity will advance much faster. Then we become cyborg and uplink our conscious selves and become immortal. We then start to evolve and shed our human bodies which is limited. We now can travel in space power by fusion and robotic body. That is how humans will survive, we have to shed our bodies and evolve as robots.

Remember Democrats stole the social security money to fund their Vietnam war! There are plenty of unfunded liabilities . Without starting a free bee give away for those that didn't earn it! Maybe yang should try it in Venezuela! After all it was free that put them in the spot they are in now! Yang is an idiot! LOOKING FOR SUCKERS!

Politics aside, Yang is a farking GENIUS for having the perspicacity to expand the broader philosophical context of the prevailing political, economic, sociological, and ideological patterns in order to not just SEE these terrifying trends, but he's also brilliant for figuring out how to develop a new UBI to address it.

    He's heroic for embarking on his quixotic attempt to get the nomination, but he knows that it is the only way to get the message out there to folks who might be willing to listen, and able to help.

    Who knew that this group was no LONGER the democratic party…

    Yang really seems to just miss the mark for me on so many points. Suicide in men 50-54 is about unemployment, in an economy that has the most employees in American history…? Somehow, I don't think that's it, but I'm not running for president. Perhaps we might look at divorce. 9 of 10 divorce related suicides are committed by men. I can't imagine why men don't want to get married these days… Getting married in America today is signing up for a lifetime of financial hardship, or suicide, for the majority of men today who get married. Marriage can, and did have positive social impacts in our communities, but not as it's practiced today legally in America.

    ANYONE who suddenly doesn't want to work simply because of the freedom dividend was never that serious about work ANYWAY, and is unlikely to find themselves in some existential crisis of meaning and purpose. That's a garbage argument.

    UBI is proposed because we are being transitioned away from a human labor economy. So the disillusionment of unemployment and underemployment (Or well-paid employment in an extremely stressful and demanding job) STILL EXISTS, for SO many people. And even IF someone WERE to drop out because they lost their motivation, it only opens up more opportunities for other people. The whole problem EXISTS precisely BECAUSE we are losing both MEANINGFUL jobs as WELL as shitty jobs.

    People who WANT to work, and have always had opportunities TO work, in jobs that were decent, paid alright, and have them a sense of pride are disappearing, through automation and globalization. Yet, we're a wealthy country. UBI is a way to help ensure a minimum level of shared prosperity among everyone, by tapping the sources of income (mostly) that have the highest margins. Back in the day, GE, Ford, GM, P&G, made fortunes smaller than Silicon Valley giants, yet employed more people by orders of magnitude that were previously unheard of. It will not hurt them at all.

    I just don't see this "work gives meaning, so UBI is bad" as a compelling argument against UBI

    Since this he said he would give free healthcare and the vote to illegals, and called Trump a white supremacist. His math is wrong.

    This did not age well.

    Andrew Yang is just a new flavour of Communism. He will have to use force to redistribute all that money, and he's using fearmongering tactics to get his will.

    If the Left's top objective is to stop Trump, they need to get behind this guy.
    The fact that he's running on giving $1000 a month to every American, a widely socialist idea, but is being propped up by the center and Trump voters…..not because of the handout but because of his ideas and plan.
    Yang would wipe the floor with Trump and turn red states blue.
    He understands the vital issues our country faces and he has a plan.

    A UBI is $3.8 Trillion / year. That's the entire federal budget plus $500 Billion. The math just flat out does not work. Yang has barely any support. He's sitting at 2%-3% in the democratic polls and going nowhere. A UBI could never get through Congress, since you would have to essentially eliminate all the entitlement programs (i.e. the Third Rail of politics) to fund it (plus a massive tax hike). That would be immediate career suicide for any politician who supported it.

    My god. Transferring money does not transfer wealth. Why is it so hard for people to understand this. If everyone is given $1000 nothing changes as prices must adjust as scarcity was never adjusted. Job loss is only possible at lower costs of goods, there is no point selling goods that no one can afford, and there is no point replacing useless jobs. My god people, you are being sold snake oil through smoke and mirrors, it's all a sham.

    Depression, anxiety, suicide is up, Americans are stemming back to drugs again. Divorce is up. The agreement of marriage and having children are down. Life expectancy has went down in the US for the first time since 1800s. Entering the fourth industrial revolution, the last thing we need is American job being outsourced and automated without a foundation to help these people. We need something big to happen in this 4th industrial revolution and I think that is a universal basic income.

    focus on saying as much as you are saying now but with less words and/or slower pacing. Put your focus on the viewers reception of your messages. You never stop talking to allow a moment of mental digestion. See nerdwriter for what I consider decent pacing. Even Andrew Yang's pacing is a great thing to emulate. Your videos are fantasticly high quality keep it up please. I can't get this kind of content from very many creators.
