While I wouldn’t consider myself an ecofascist (yet), at the very least we need to start worrying about population control – instead of trying to breed more and more consumers to ingest more and more plastic and become more and more cancerous each year so doctors can keep playing golf and our health care system can start to bankrupt us instead of the other way around…
Pentti Linkola calls himself an ecofascist and believes Western democracies have overindustrialized their natural land due to individualism and obsession with consumer products. He advocates mass genocide, war, famine and a strong dictatorship to keep the population under control.
Upon reading this article, a few ideas sprung to mind. Popular consensus leading a population made up mostly of morons leads to only one end: a society where our best resource (people with an IQ of over 120) feel alienated among a politically-correct, lowest-common-denominator environment.
Does anyone feel this isn’t true, with all the shallow crap on TV, on the news, without any real discussion by our own presidential candidates of the really important issues of the day and the really important effects of man-made causes? Is any one of our presidential candidates even willing to engage someone in the following issues?
- Israel, as a political ally, needs to go. We bail them out time and time again because England the US force-fed zionists to the Arabs, and they’ve needed our protection ever since we allowed the systematic disenfranchisement of the Palestinians.
- Our over-population and lack of a sense of social responsibility will ultimately lead to the death of most of us when water and other resource-related wars begin.
- As a society, we’re getting dumber. Period. Something needs to be done. This is inter-related with lots of fun issues that will never be discussed in politics again, the way our system is currently constructed: our lack of cultural identity, our increasingly politically-correct environment, our ignorance of our country’s own foreign policy, etc.
- Illegal immigration has as much to do with Mexican politics as it does with US politics. Mexico has a beautiful piece of land between two beautiful shores, with lots of natural resources, but they’d rather leach off the US than get their act together and get rid of their druglords. If the US took a hard line with illegal immigration, maybe Mexico would be more apt to clean up their act.
We support the school shooter Pekka-Eric Auvinen because he shattered the illusion in which most people live. The illusion is that our society is moral, progressive and moving toward a positive goal. The reality is that we are living in delusion, we are doing it for our own selfish sense of status, and that the end result will be to breed ourselves into stupidity, to pollute the planet and kill its beautiful wildlife, and in the meantime, to bore ourselves to death with categorical rules and mirthless function.
In our view, doom awaits us all anyway, so those who are killed now die as symbols of the discontent. This discontent is not widely spread because most people have the attention spans of gnats. However, we have chosen to build our society on the idea of the individual as king over truth, which allows the idiots and parasites among us to run our society into the ground, because if only 1% of people see why something is necessary, and it’s not popular or profitable, it gets ignored — even if it is reality. We commend you to the philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche, Arthur Schopenhauer, Theodore Kaczynski, Pentti Linkola, Rene Guenon, Vijay Prozak and Julius Evola for more information.
When people ask why I, personally, support the Jokela shooter my answer is the same as when I am asked why I think the September 11 attacks were awesome. Our world is structured so that we are controlled through our own selfishness, and what our oligarchs want is that we keep distracting ourselves with television, new purchases, fast food, sex, drugs/drink and job titles so that we do not notice the direction in which our species is heading. Essentially, we are cannibalizing ourselves — a few thoughtless and callous rich will rule over the masses of stupid, and will proclaim themselves Socially Darwinistically fit because of their economic success, all while squeezing out genius, great art, great literature and so on.
I encourage all who read this to look critically at our society. Are we producing better people, or less good people who know how to repeat the neo-Stalinist party line about equality, anti-terrorism, “freedom” and support for special interest groups? Are we producing great art, or did artists find a way to make Britney Spears-level junk art look profound? Are we producing culture, or an endless series of disingenuous hipsters who lack ideas because they’re afraid of reality? Are we taking on the moral challenge to grow better like the ancient Greeks and Romans, or are we becoming fat, lazy and incompetent like the remains of third-world dictatorships? Are we using our technology to become better, or are we simply growing more (7 billion) people with barely enough intelligence to watch TV and perform menial jobs, while we consume planet earth?
This is why I support the Jokela shooter: he doesn’t let you assume everything is alright. He doesn’t let you think that if you just buy the right brand of shoes, things will work out. He doesn’t let you believe the lies of politicians, activists, television personalities and religious leaders. He is a giant flaming fist that says IT IS NOT OKAY and that our direction is wrong, the design of our society is wrong, and that we’re basically a dying culture of people prejudiced toward negativity, depression and callow materialism — and that this state will continue until we fix it. It doesn’t end until we fix it, and if we let it go on, it destroys all beautiful things and replaces them with a fat, stupid grey race of humans who believe in nothing but eating and defecating. Do you understand now?
Yet another teenager today tried to awaken a numb world with the sacrifice of himself and several other students, this time in southern Finland for that country’s first school shooting1. He opened fire at his high school, killing eight people and wounding ten, before police surrounded the building and presumably took him out.
You are expected to stand there open-mouthed and wonder aloud, “But how could anybody do this? Why would they do this?” but this feeble cover is really no longer anything but transparent. We know why they do it: teenagers are the people who have not yet inherited an adult world that is totally dysfunctional, and so they often reject it through suicide and/or removal of a few of the most troublesome obstructions they encounter.
When Pekka-Eric Auvinen shot up his high school, he was sending a message with his self-sacrifice. It’s a message that adults should heed, since ignoring problems has gotten us global pollution, climate change, political instability, ghettoes, a culture dominated by moronic television and music, constant ethnic strife, and so on. The list goes on. It’s no wonder teenagers don’t want to join your world that by virtue of its insistence on obliviousness produces completely retarded results consistently.
The teenager had warned that he was discontent with an adult world, and was recommended anti-depressants by a disinterested YouTube moderator2, despite the lack of conclusive proof that anti-depressants stop the cause of depression, which has been increasing in the modern time and is the leading cause of disability in industrialized nations3. While most sources look for treatment, few ask the obvious question: is it possible that depression has an external cause, like our society being ugly and/or heading into Rome-esque failure.
We know from our mass media that he was misanthropic, disliked the direction society was headed, and felt himself drawn to extremes to break through the fog of delusion in which most people move. For example, he admired extreme leftist and extreme rightist leaders alike4 and called himself a “social darwinist” and admired “natural selection.” (He may have confused “social darwinism,” or the theory that linear competitive systems like capitalism and academia produce humanity’s best, with Darwinism applied to society.)
Let’s do what no one else will do, and read his manifesto and his own words, so we can see what this individual really believed and what drove him to do what he did, which we will view as a political statement instead of an insane act, because to do otherwise would be to deny his individuality and that for which his victims died:
I am prepared to fight and die for my cause. I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human race and failures of natural selection.
You might ask yourselves, why did I do this and what do I want. Well, most of you are too arrogant and closed-minded to understand… You will probably say that I am “insane”, “crazy”, “psychopath”, “criminal” or crap like that. No, the truth is that I am just an animal, a human, an individual, a dissident.5
He makes it clear that he takes an aesthetic viewpoint on humanity, dividing us into the beautiful and ugly, and sees no point to the ugly, stupid, deformed, parasitic, etc. While this reeks of national socialism in addition to the natural selection he so admires, let’s look at it from an environmental perspective. The reason for our environmental decline is too many people, and too many stupid people, because even if we each use the minimum amount of resources and land possible, we will still overrun earth, and if the current generation doesn’t the next will. Who breeds the most? The lowest-IQ people in the first and third worlds.
Pentti Linkola elaborates on this:
A fundamental, devastating error is to set up a political system based on desire. Society and life are been organized on basis of what an individual wants, not on what is good for him or her…Just as only one out of 100,000 has the talent to be an engineer or an acrobat, only a few are those truly capable of managing the matters of a nation or mankind as a whole…In this time and this part of the World we are headlessly hanging on democracy and parliamentary system, even though these are the most mindless and desperate experiments of the mankind…In democratic countries the destruction of nature and sum of ecological disasters has accumulated most…Our only hope lies in strong central government and uncompromizing control of the individual citizen…We still have a chance to be cruel. But if we are not cruel today, all is lost.
Our helpful mass media tells us that the school shooter read history and philosophy6, which are known for having a perspective than transcends individuality. It is the type of discipline that tells us whatever we think we want as individuals, the progress of history and the rules of the natural world remain immutable. It reminds us that worrying too much about what we want, who we are, what our social status is, and so on, is delusional karmic drama that keeps us from seeing the reality of life itself: it is a struggle to perfect ourselves, and create societies and people of beauty, or we become entrenched in a socialized depression and “tolerance” of mediocrity that ultimately kills us.
With that in mind, we can see this school shooter and extreme right/left wing dictators as what they really are, which is a force of natural renewal much like the forest fire that kills off the weak trees and lets the others divide up the resources so they can create a stronger, better, more uniformly healthy forest. What we call tolerance is too often an excuse to tolerate the parasitic, criminal, stupid and ugly, and guys like Stalin, Hitler, Linkola and this school shooter show us that reality.
Society will strike back with passive aggression, because that is the only option left to people shocked out how rudely they are yanked out of denial7. To be passive aggressive, blithely assume that you are right while forcing other people to conform to your needs, all without directly striking them. Go ahead, set up that anal pornography shop across from the church. It’s your right. They don’t have a right to not see you or interact with you. Force them to tolerate you. If they object, call them insane and put them in jail. That’s what this society does to any dissident with a chance of making change, which is why some kids get frustrated and shoot up their schools (others are insane, but not all).
Our modern society of shared denial fears the truth and so we suppress it, which is why school shootings get responses of outrage and disbelief. Don’t let the propaganda fool you. We are all disconnected from any context but our own selves, and so focused on our wealth and status that we’re oblivious to the world, or the intangible values of life which our materialistic society denies. The only disbelief here is the shock of being caught in a daydream that we pretended was reality, and this is why we have such outrage against this school shooter, who in a healthier time might be known as a hero for his extermination of false authoritarians, weak people and other stooges of human delusion.
1) Using the CT data from scanning done in January, a “rapid prototype model” of the skull was made and provided to French forensic anthropologist Jean-Noel Vignal, of the Centre Technique de la Gendarmerie Nationale. Vignal, who works daily with police officials to reconstruct deceased crime victims, determined from the skull that the person had been male, 18 to 20 years old, with Caucasoid features. “Caucasoid” describes a major group of peoples of Europe, North Africa, the Near East and India.
2) From the CT data, Vignal and his team determined basic measurements and features of Tut’s face. For example, the size of the narrow nasal opening, considered a Caucasoid trait, allowed them to fix the size range of Tut’s nose. Other data guided them on the position of the king’s mouth and his receding chin. Vignal also used the data to calculate the correct thickness of skin on Tut’s face.
5) To further validate the French specialists’ work, National Geographic decided to provide the CT data to a second team — but without telling them who they were recreating. Working “blind,” Susan Antón, associate professor of anthropology at New York University, in consultation with Bradley Adams of the chief Medical Examiner’s office, studied the CT data. She quickly described the mystery person as male, age 18 to 19 years, and of African ancestry with several Caucasian affinities, possibly of north African origin — all uncannily accurate. Using this information artist Michael Anderson of the Yale Peabody Museum then created his own likeness of the mystery figure and cast it in plaster.
Curses, he resembles modern North Africans, and not dusky Africans or fair-eyed Nordics. Even more disturbing is that people can recreate races from physical traits, since we all know race is a construct of language and has nothing to do with reality. Only symbols and language are reality. We can deny reality. Except when some asshole like this King Tut (certainly from a Red State) comes in to piss on our parade. History is racist, sexist, IQist, and heightist. Damn history to hell from whence it came.
Ordinary people. I hate them. An ordinary person spends his life avoiding tense situations. A repo man spends his life getting into tense situations. Let’s go get a drink. – Bud
When you get rich without thinking, and powerful without trying, the tendency is to pull back from the things you once fought against. You’re sick of doing the laundry; pay someone. You’re bored of cleaning house; pay someone. You don’t want to make up your own mind, or even question others, so you delegate that, too.
Our time is one of riches we didn’t directly earn, and a lack of combat for anything of meaning. A war in the modern context wouldn’t even give us the challenge we need. We can have hobbies, and try to climb mountains others have long ago conquered, or invent new sports like snowboarding to try ourselves against nature, but… is that really a challenge, or an endurance and skills test? We need something to challenge our souls.
Lack of engagement with reality is what keeps us puny. Like all modern popular music, which seems to cloak the same chord progressions and scales and structures in a new image, and new type of sound with the same values as older sounds. Like modern art, which makes freakish combinations of the same six subjects (death, inequality, sexuality, unequal death, sexual inequality, being an artist) but has no new content. It’s like we connected all of humanity with telephones and computers, and found out we had nothing to say.
All I’ve got are things to say. I am not good at dressing them up in slick new forms that people think are “creative genius” for the two weeks before they forget and go on to the next new incomparable creation hashing out the same old refrains. These refrains aren’t even unique to our time. They’re the neurotic expression of people in any time who have lost the thread of pursuing meaning, the intangible, in their lives and so they focus on the tangible.
What fascinates me are the design choices that can be outwardly similar but radically different. Beethoven, through the careful placement of a few notes outside of what a more mundane intelligence would do, created beauty, and then let his technical skill fulfill it. The right combination of words can make a poem and not a cliche. You can throw all the energy, money, and time in the world at a problem, but without this inner dimension of the intangible, the dimension of design, you do not accomplish what you could have.
In your lives, if you want to live well and rise out of the internal combustion quagmire of this time, you will challenge yourselves — internally, in intangible ways. Do not accept easy answers or excuses from yourself. If you can dream it you can do it, with some work and some thought. There is no reason to step back from the world, say “well I coulda done that if The Man let me,” and then sulk in failure. Life is joyful war. Go for it.
The old tale, attributed to African-Americans but probably invented by a Mongolian copyriter in New York, describes the tar baby left out as a lure for angry people. A tar baby is symbolic because it looks human and because it won’t answer you, it can make you angry. When you then start hitting the thing, all it does is stick to you in increasing degrees, like a trap.
In the lore of ancient religions, a distinction was made between transcendental goals (honor, beauty, glory, balance) and karmic ones, or those things important only to people obsessed with material success and status. Most people are caught up in the karmic whirlwind, and so they agonize over the objects they own, their job status, who wore what at what party, etc. People ensnared in such karmic bullshit constitute parasites and obstructions to those with any higher goal, not in the least because a karmically-minded person “cannot see” the value in a higher goal.
If you ever feel your time is being wasted in this world, it is almost surely because some witless person in the grasp of karmic obsession has created a tar baby for you. You can beat on them, but they refuse to understand (or are too stupid) and so they portray you as the aggressor. They will in fact use this defensive strategy as an offense to get you out of the way, because they fear any goal they don’t understand, and while karmic goals are easy to quantify, any transcendental one is a mystery to such nodding empty heads.
When a society is ruled by transcendental people, it may encounter great tragedy through war because in its zeal for struggle, it has been brought to earth by its physical failings. It may go through hard times. However, it will not experience the slow decay brought on by the karmically obsessed, who take a good thing and by their personal fixation on the trivial, slowly erode it to the point where all people are parasitizing each other in their desire to fight fervently for a few meaningless tokens of comfort or self-importance.
Karma brings ego, because without a transcendental goal, we have nothing but ourselves to relapse into, with increasing neurotic fury. When civilizations are ready to die, they become karmic tar babies, where all but a few of their citizens are caught up in a whirlwind of paranoiac obsession with the trivial, and these people will destroy anyone who rises above that state because having any one person not addicted to pointless misery disturbs the karma-minds.
When you see how much people throw their time into jobs which achieve nothing important of substance, but shuffle paper around fervently, and into jockeying for social status which will be forgotten in years not decades, and actually devote large chunks of their free time into thinking about what objects they must buy (without a clear need for such objects, like a fetish), you know the end isn’t far away. We live in such a transparent plastic time and as the tar smears across us, only a few are poking up heads to point out that our karmic addictions are not real, at least not as real as the intangible but vital transcendental experience that might lift us from such a dung-browed treacle.
We were talking about the news last night, and about Dr. James Watson and how his recent statements were ill-received by the press. I don’t want to comment on the content of his statements, as I’m sure others are busy making that utterly boring and fallacious by creative redefinition of the terms involved, but I want to comment on the phenomenon:
Respected scientist offers theory, and theory is rejected on the grounds that it cannot even be considered because it’s offensive.
This is a variation on marketing: we cannot offer X product, because Y people will be upset and won’t buy our other products (this is about the only thing that keeps industry from offering anal dildos to four-year-olds, really). We cannot mention X social event, because Y person will have a panic attack and ruin the social engagement. That’s all well and good for social engagements and grocery stores, but what about science?
Science is the basis of how we make our future decisions; while we all know how arrogant and linear (materialist categorical) science now is, we know that rationality needs to guide us in some form. We need science. We need to be able to consider every option, even if it offends people, whoever those people are. We should not stop for elites or masses if either group or both are offended.
But instead we’re driving blind, because before we can consider an option we prejudice our minds against it. Consider how many screwups you’ve made when driving and trying to find a new location. “Well, it said it would be a left, so I didn’t consider any right turns” you say, and then the directions turn out to be wrong, and there — how could you have missed it the first time? — plain as day is the street down which you wanted to turn. But it was a right, so you ignored it.
We drive blind because in this universe there is a mathematical bias toward the destructive, parasitic, pointless, immaculately useless and parasitic. Why is this, you might ask? Early mathematical developments in the universe revealed that if you don’t exert an equal and opposite reaction, if not more, against any rising force, you allow it to too quickly take over, which leads to a form of entropy known as heat death.
What this means is that 99% of your species exist to hold you back. Their function is to destroy anything good they are given and then to demand more; to sodomize children and hide their bodies in ditches; to steal, like, cheat, loaf, vandalize, ruin and molest. They are mud, they are feces, they are the eternal moron. But they serve a mathematical function in ensuring that few powerful forces rise, which exerts stability which for the long-term growth of a species is more important than greatness.
However, with humans, we’re in control of our destiny, and we need greatness or we’re basically glorified apes. As glorified apes, we lose everything that made us capable of self-direction, and there’s no chance of us growing to do more interesting things. We need more than stability a sense of purpose, beauty and meaning. 99% of all people will say they are doing the opposite, but in their deeds will do everything they can to destroy purpose, beauty and meaning.
We call these people punjis, after punji stakes or punji sticks, which means a shit-covered shard of bamboo designed to infect and slow down others. Most people act like punji stakes, don’t they? Most human insults involve feces, because it’s what you step in when you were trying to do something inspired instead. Punjis are human feces, but they have brains and hands, and they’ll destroy whatever they can.
When we look at what happened to Dr. Watson, a respected scientist rising above the idiots around him, we can see that he is being dragged down by the punjis for their own gratification. Those of us who are from the 1% who can think and do owe it to our own survival to beat back these punjis, even if we don’t agree with the issue in question, because otherwise, the punjis are coming for us — next.
Nihilism can be expressed by a simple formula: considering the whole of the visible and invisible world, It is what it is. This tautology reflects the nature of life itself. As something interconnected from the farthest reaches of the universe to the simplest details of mundane life, it is mathematically linked by causal relationships that are not immediately visible, as in the butterfly effect.
Humans try to make “visible-style” causal relationships, such as materialistic science or dualistic religion, to eliminate this uncertainty. Nihilism is a removal of these illogical influences. You cannot stave off death; it is real. You cannot deny aging; it is real. You cannot deny the failure of badly-designed civilizations; that, too, is real.
Why nihilism? When you strip away all the human fears and pretensions, reality is often much easier to handle because it is entirely a causal relationship cascade, and it makes sense in a way that human interjections do not. These human interjections are like oversimplifications, or witty statements, standing in for detailed explanations of how a nuclear submarine works.
“And after the reactor, the power just goes through the puckered anus and suddenly the ship is a goatse!” — you wouldn’t put up with that kind of stupidity on a tour, but if someone tells you that because most people who eat peanuts also like lemon pie, eating peanuts makes you like lemon pie, you wolf down the explanation. You can screw up on either side of the scale, with science-materialism which is linear explanations for complex situations that inevitably confuse correlation with causation and do not understand complex (contributive) causation, or on the religious side, where some weird symbol like a dead dusky carpenter on a cross makes you think that all reality is crap compared to the purity of the new, visible symbol you’ve discovered.
Nihilism, like Zen, starts with a slap in the face and progresses to moments of satori, at which point the way you’ve lived life up until then seems like the stumblings of a drunken low-caste midget. You will need to work for it, and do it yourself, by thinking on these concepts as you walk through life and gradually focusing more exactly on what they mean. Awakened people tend to be thoughtful, but not limited to human-centric thoughts, and they are aware of larger chains of causal consequence than those around them. If a society ever learns to master nihilism in even 1% of its population it will produce Nietzschean overmen.
This mess of a post is in shorthand, is hard to comprehend, and is about as graceful as a turd on a rail gun. However, it’s enough of a slap in the face that maybe your Romantic soul will see the beauty of the other side it’s offering to you.
