Batman vs. Superman, Social Justice and Anti-Semitism

dawn_of_stupidity

Surely the obituary for Western culture will include a footnote for the newish film Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice:

Not only did the subject matter — a fantasy designed for small boys — trigger concerns of an infantilized and out of touch population, but also as many commentators noted, the movie was terrible. Robotic script, wooden acting, surface emotional content and brain-degrading dialogue. And yet, audiences seemed not to care, and attended it happily in large groups, possibly so busy texting and chattering that they were unaware they were watching a movie.

When entertainment for adults becomes cartoons, it says something about the audience. They need to feel like heroes, and they want to watch something with the depth of a Soviet propaganda film that makes them feel good about their society and its direction. This tells us that they are not heroes, and they are not confident in our future.

This takes us to a study of the psychology of projection. People assert what they doubt. They do this fanatically because it is psychologically easier than facing what they are afraid is true. Primitive societies dress their warriors like terrors in the hope that this will protect them. Sophisticated societies create mythologies of morality to rationalize failure by explaining that, while all is destroyed, it was done in the name of being good sociable creatures who never harmed anyone.

Projection allows us to assign our own choices to external forces. This can make us feel heroic, as in a superhero movie or “Social Justice” where people assume that armchair activism makes them into Martin Luther King, Jr. It can also avoid the elephant in the room, which is our bad choices, by blaming external actors like The Jews™, the Rich, “poverty” or Satan himself for the results of our poor decisions. Scapegoats of this nature are always more popular because they are simpler and psychologically easier than facing the actual problem, which is usually denied because people are afraid of it.

And yet fixing this actual problem is our only hope. We made bad choices and got bad results. Allowing mercantile elements to take over our society from below was stupid, as was pacifying the masses to avoid revolts. Democracy was stupid — especially after the warning from ancient Athens — and now tolerance, social justice, diversity, transgender bathroom rights and other artifacts of democracy are stupid. Just as Communism in Russia was stupid, Liberalism in America and Europe is stupid and heading in the same direction.

What makes history fascinating is that it is a story of people looking in the wrong places because they were afraid of the underlying issues. Then some disobedient individual or non-conforming group takes a new look at the problem, sees the obvious common sense reality and acts on it, and gets ahead. Then everyone else slavishly imitates that group, just as they slavishly imitated one another in avoiding the problem previously. Until we get to that state, our existence will be much like the odious Batman vs. Superman: a simplistic cartoon on the screen, and our feet stuck to the floor where an unknown sticky substance accumulates gradually, eventually pulling us all down into its decay.

Prince Is Felled By The Hollywood Dichotomy

prince_-_darling_nikki

So this is what made Tipper Gore flip her bit back in the day. That, of course, was “Darling Nikki” performed by the artist formerly known as Prince (RIP). That was how I and several of my immature teenage sidekicks used to get back at Mom for making us stop behaving like pseudo-sapient primates.

Yet, as Prince aged, he came to espouse a philosophy more in line with Tipper than Nikki. He once shocked his libertine fandom by stating the following.

“God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out,” he told the magazine. “He was, like, ‘Enough’.”

So that’s what happens if too many people grab a hold of Nikki and go upstairs and grind? Well, Prince didn’t claim to be converted to Christianity. He saw it as more of an enlightenment.

“I don’t see it really as a conversion,” he said. “More, you know, it’s a realization. It’s like Morpheus and Neo in ‘The Matrix’.”

This is not a shocker. Generally this is a logical reaction to the impact of the whole Darling Nikki lifestyle has over time. It’s fun at first and then the hate facts about lifestyle are begrudgingly acknowledged as drag sets in. Thus many people tend to fall into grace as C.S. Lewis put it. This seems particularly garish and jarring when we see it among the wild, hyper-sexualized rock singers and other entertainers who realize the cost of their lifestyles. Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper have both been born again. Cooper even cast it as a rebellion against counterculture.*

“Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that’s a tough call. That’s rebellion.” “Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll is easy. True Christianity … that’s rebellion.”

And this happens throughout the most radical counterculture. Howard Stern and Steven Tyler portray one lifestyle in their public content and then separate their daughters from it rigorously. The lesbian coprophages that Howard Stern interviews as part of his radio freakshow would be shot through the chest if they set foot on his lawn. The Obamas may party with ‘Yonce and JayZ, but their daughters attend Sidwell Friends.

We see the same with Prince. He made his money selling sexual sin like the Whore of Babylon. But he only lasted 57 years because of the extent to which he attempted to avoid the lifestyle he glorified to others in much of his music. Yep, when it came time to grind with Darling Nikki, an older, wiser Prince would only do it with someone else’s mentulla. The dichotomy did him in at last. He received an anti-opiate “save shot” days before he finally met his demise.

I’m firmly convinced he fell victim to the Hollywood Dichotomy. You can profess Christianity,** but can only serve one master in the end. I can only hope that Prince wasn’t claimed at last by the darker master that much of his pop-rock lifestyle ultimately served.

For those who care, take a lesson from this. If a person lives his own life diametrically opposite from how he suggests you live yours; then you probably do not want to heed his advice. People who are doing what they are supposed to do in life properly, do not suffer a dichotomy –- Hollywood or otherwise.

*-Dare I say it? A Neo-Reaction.
**-Or any other form of higher spiritual enlightenment or religious faith.

The Great Homosexual/Transgender Debate Is Not About Sex

the_love_that_dare_not_bleat_its_name
by Bill Waggoner

Following up on my article on mutual tolerance, I feel it due to point out that it founders in some circumstances. A distinction must be made if we are to preserve our sanity relatively intact between a behavior and its symbolic representation in our mental model of civilization and its values.

Even the most cursory familiarity with nature suffices to recognize the archetypal pattern that runs from people all the way down through animals, birds and (to the extent of their limited capacity) some fish and reptiles like alligators. Mommy and daddy make babies and devote their lives to feeding, teaching and defending them until they are able to go it on their own. This abstraction of the real into an idea/ideal it approximates is thus the normative model of human relations involving the procreative organs.

But since everything in the sublunary realm is subject to accident, as with any other model founded on the idealization of imperfect realities, divergences from it occur. The working solution to this, where people are concerned, has long been a policy of benign neglect. By common consent, what goes on behind closed doors is simply ignored: excluded from notice and comment. Like free market capitalism, while as imperfect in practice as any other makeshift compromise, this (at east in theory) nevertheless results in Bentham’s greatest good for the greatest number, with the inevitable abuses it enables written off as unavoidable without violating the compromise itself.

What we have been enduring in recent years is not, at root, inundation with distasteful “sexuality” but a frontal assault on the archetype itself as a normative model and guide. Like Satan, the rabidly “alternate sexual preference” brigade is not content with a place in the scheme of things. They must ascend the throne of “Nature and nature’s God” and rule from it. Not only should their behaviors come out of the closet, they must have their place in — and dominate — the drawing room. And the school system. And the media. And the workplace. And relations between people.

It isn’t really about homosexuality at all. That’s only the tip of the splitting wedge. The objective is the fragmentation of the coherence of Western Civilization that stands in the way of the forces using them as stalking horses — the setting of women against men, children against their parents, immigrants against natives and, in the final analysis, everyman against himself. In military parlance, it’s “softening up” an enemy target before invading and attempting to physically occupy it.

We are under assault, and our assailants are intelligent enough to use as their weapons those we would not attack because of their natural lower status. Homosexuals and transsexuals, by virtue of being rare and their sexual practices appalling to the vast majority of people, are natural targets of bullies and sadists. Our instinct is to protect them. Our enemies are using that goodwill against us to force us into internal conflict and thus, collapse. It’s not about sex at all; the great homosexual/transgender debate of 2016 is about conquest.

A Path Through The Ruins

a_path_through_the_ruins

If this blog has a dominant theory, it is The enemy is us, in recognition of the fact that human groups tend toward entropy. Without intervention by the few among us who possess leadership ability, people follow individual paths that lead nowhere and generate social chaos.

In contrast, history teaches us a binary: true and not-true. Some methods of civilization work; others do not. Civilization is all; the individual without civilization has few options. Not surprisingly, most human fantasies involve being free of the burden of civilizational upkeep.

These fantasies started with the idea of equality, or that we do not need talented leaders, only rules on paper to make the average person into a responsible leader. This inept form of government then approved the next popular desire, which was that society should subsidize every person just for being human.

This leads us to the present. We have combined capitalism ingenuity with Socialist benefits to create the final state of liberal democracy: an egalitarian system in which all are safe, and all are miserable. Existential misery has risen to the level that few people are reproducing and most are miserable and destructive at the family level.

While this shows the function of government — squeezing the few productive ones to pay for the rest, thus keeping itself in power — it reveals a broader decline. Our civilization lost clear purpose about a thousand years ago when it started growing and as a result, tolerating people who could work as labor but had no other abilities.

This growth in robots of the biological type took its time to obliterate us, but managed to crowd out the few smart people by forcing them to manage and subsidize the masses. The masses then overthrew their leaders, established democracy, and our dysfunctional government now is merely acting out their fantasies.

Like all illusions, this one is coming to an end.

  • Life is hell: people are stupid, behavior is bad, jobs are jails, neighborhoods are alienating, products are low quality and culture is idiocy.
  • We’re dying out. Reproduction lags replacement levels.
  • Bad leadership. Our governments are in debt beyond what we could ever repay and bloated, inefficient and destructive in their policies.
  • Moron victory. Most people, industries and bureaucrats are incompetent.
  • Diversity. We are surrounded by those that diversity makes into enemies. We invited them here to pay for our subsidies with their labor, and they hate us as a result.

The situation seems hopeless. The morons have won; all is decline. As a result, most smart people aim for either self-destruction or escape. The thought of retreating somewhere away from the disaster is tempting until one considers that the decay always needs more money and enemies to keep going. Breakaway “exit” is not an option.

This means that we either gain control of the beast, or we let it destroy itself and then some of us rebuild. The problem with rebuilding is that idiots always outnumber the intelligent, and when idiots see something good next door, they will go there and ruin it too (this is the Peet Conundrum).

As with most hard problems, neither option seems particularly rewarding. Gaining control of an out-of-control democracy (but I repeat myself, as Ann Coulter says) is nearly impossible because people always vote for personal benefit at the expense of the whole. The future requires cutting benefits, and voters would rather die.

Thus I propose a hybrid plan: a society which rises up from within the ashes of the old, by destroying the old through parasitism, with a goal toward seizing the power that remains and using it to disenfranchise those who do not understand why this is necessary. In short: a replication of the liberal strategy.

Liberals conquered the West with relatively few people. They did so through a simple formula:

  1. A plausible complaint. Inequality causes internal division.
  2. A simple theory. An inverted form of pacifism: give equality in exchange for comradeship.
  3. A scapegoat. The only reason our policies fail is the more-equal thwarting us.
  4. A bribe. Fight the enemy and you can join our gang, and we’ll help you.

Comparisons to cults, street gangs and cancers are appropriate. This is the same mentality: form a dissident group and take over by working for each other, against the society at large, forcing it to accept you, at which point you can hoodwink the rest with simple promises.

If we can unite even a half-percent of the right people in our society, we can make them the force for revolutionary change. In the late 1990s, I wrote:

Among us, there are 2-5% of people in our society who are leaders in a practical sense. This means that whether they have an official title or not, they lead the community in business, spiritual, community, academic or social settings.

These are the people that your average person trusts. They trust information from these people more than from the government, their televisions, or casual friends. They respect the judgment abilities of these people.

Our goal is to inform these leaders of our values, get them to form consensus that these should be adopted, and then send them forth to implement these values in all that they do and to demand them from politicians.

This group becomes valuable when liberal democracy fails as is inevitable. Like the Soviet Union and post-Revolutionary France, Western liberal democracy is collapsing for the usual reason: it is based on rebellion, and not on having a positive and affirmative life direction.

The collapse of Western liberal democracy is a subordinate event to the collapse of the West itself. The choice of liberal democracy was a symptom of this greater collapse, and when liberal democracy goes, we will still have the broader problem of decline to deal with. But as with most human error, it is relatively easily counteracted.

At that time, a power vacuum will occur, much as happened after the fall of the USSR. Into this state normally come tyrants because strong power is the only force which can unify a distracted, narcissistic, oblivious and robotic population. But into that power vacuum a unified group can project itself and seize power.

The fall of liberal democracy in the West will occur because the government has created too many benefits it cannot sustain, and it will need to drop those to avoid both external and internal threats. Unable to do that, it has become dependent on the flow of money and thus corrupted by business and special interest groups.

As its options narrow, liberal democracy will be unable to avoid the financial collapse of its governments, internal unrest and the threats from outside forces — notably Russia, India, China and South American states — who will attempt to overthrow it. In bankruptcy, riots and war it will exit this world.

That brings a condition where power will be handed to those who are able to instill order so people can earn a living. Your average person makes poor decisions and will settle for those alone, figuring he’ll fix the rest later. Humans never change. This is how tyrants gain power.

If, on the other hand, the one group that was not agitating for some variety of liberal democracy steps up and proclaims a new plan, it can then gain enough support from the 60% of people in the West who are not totally lost and use that to seize power.

It goal must then be to learn from the past, and realize that there are many among us who do not fit. All Other must go gently back to their homelands, but so must all who do not fit the Western European model of tall, thin-faced, slender and intelligent people. We need a general purge through deportation to restore eugenic health.

Another essential task is to disenfranchise the 99 out of 100 people who have no capacity for leadership decisions. If they are allowed to continue voting, they will screw it up the exact same way as last time because their historical consciousness lasts for six months. They cannot be educated or instructed to make right choices.

At this point, the new regime can begin to focus on restoring genetic, moral and spiritual health. This cannot be done from outside, but by choosing those who exhibit more of these traits than others and advancing them. A process of many centuries leads us back to health.

Of late, I have grown more optimistic because the fall of liberal democracy is not only clear and imminent, but also looks to be extreme enough to give us momentum toward an entirely different system, which I formulate as:

  • Nationalism. Only those of the founding ethnic group constitute the nation. These must uphold the ideals of the group in appearance, ability and inclinations.
  • Capitalism. No managed economies. Allow people to buy and sell from each other, as limited by cultural values and where abusive, the strong hands of kings and lords.
  • Aristocracy. Put the best people by leadership ability into power and give them the authority to fix problems without reference to precedent.
  • Transcendentals. Instead of looking backward to threats and fears, society must set itself toward affirmative goals involving excellence.

Right now, this seems like a LARP dream list. That will change as liberal democracy crashes and its obvious fiscal irresponsibility, statecraft incompetence, and inner corruption is revealed. At that point, this entirely different system will resemble what it is, which is the true to liberal democracy’s not-true.

For now, people want a task, and this is it: help destroy the governments of your nations. Do whatever you can to make everyday life for the average person miserable and to cause government to screw up and self-destruct. Push it toward bankruptcy, warfare, and failure. Show no mercy, as it will show you none.

By nature, we are conservatives who wish to destroy nothing. But when the disease has taken over most of the tree, or at least blocked the roots from the leaves, it is time to savagely hack until it falls, and then set it ablaze so its infection does not spread. Thus shall be the end of liberal democracy and the rebirth of humanity.

The Digital Branch of Government

into_cyberspace_high_on_octagons

It may well be time to update some of the stale linguistics that describe the ongoing political efforts to game democratic governance. Perhaps the terms Google Nudge, Google Auction or even worse; Google Veto need to be added to the lexicon. This new anti-democratic influence on political decision-making is emerging because of a confluence of technology, ideology and material means to effect said dominance. The technology is the internet search engine, the ideology is Progressive Liberaltarianism* and the material means is the obvious wellspring of vast wealth that has been accumulated in Silicon Valley.

The internet search engine works as a technological conduit by which information can be gathered, sorted and delivered for consumption via the personal computer or other digital platforms. When you control a utility; you also control a bottle neck. Google currently dominates the search engine industry. This means they also have the option to control or auction what bit of information makes it through the search engine queue first. Given the Modern high time preference, this is an awesome power to control what people think. Robert Epstein explains the limiting power of this conduit.

That ordered list is so good, in fact, that about 50 per cent of our clicks go to the top two items, and more than 90 per cent of our clicks go to the 10 items listed on the first page of results; few people look at other results pages…

So given the limited queue time to get your information read and the awesome power of the internet search engine, who shows up where in a search priority is a huge monetary event for the people publishing the information.

Because people are far more likely to read and click on higher-ranked items, companies now spend billions of dollars every year trying to trick Google’s search algorithm – the computer program that does the selecting and ranking – into boosting them another notch or two. Moving up a notch can mean the difference between success and failure for a business, and moving into the top slots can be the key to fat profits.

So how does this translate into political power? Through the Search Engine Manipulation Effect. What internet users get shown, influences what they see of the truth and how they view the world around them.

We present evidence from five experiments in two countries suggesting the power and robustness of the search engine manipulation effect (SEME). Specifically, we show that (i) biased search rankings can shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20% or more, (ii) the shift can be much higher in some demographic groups, and (iii) such rankings can be masked so that people show no awareness of the manipulation. Knowing the proportion of undecided voters in a population who have Internet access, along with the proportion of those voters who can be influenced using SEME, allows one to calculate the win margin below which SEME might be able to determine an election outcome.

Corporations and workers who make a living controlling power internet sites gain a measure of political power by their proximity to the data conduits. Here is an example of how this may occur in future elections.

To test the hypothesis that political behavior can spread through an online social network, we conducted a randomized controlled trial with all users of at least 18 years of age in the United States who accessed the Facebook website on 2 November 2010, the day of the US congressional elections. Users were randomly assigned to a ‘social message’ group, an ‘informational message’ group or a control group. The social message group (n= 60,055,176) was shown a statement at the top of their ‘News Feed’. This message encouraged the user to vote, provided a link to find local polling places, showed a clickable button reading ‘I Voted’, showed a counter indicating how many other Facebook users had previously reported voting, and displayed up to six small randomly selected ‘profile pictures’ of the user’s Facebook friends who had already clicked the I Voted button (Fig. 1). The informational message group (n=611,044) was shown the message, poll information, counter and button, but they were not shown any faces of friends. The control group (n=613,096) did not receive any message at the top of their News Feed.

People receiving the “social message” were 0.39% more likely to vote than those who did not. Out of approximately 610,000 voters, this makes turnout increase by a notch under 2,500. When so-called social-contagion is taken into account, this increase in turnout becomes 0.60% or something on the order 3,800 to 4,000 out of 610,000. Out of an electorate of 240 Million (approximate US eligible voters); this would be almost 1.5 million votes. If these votes were to be effectively controlled and aimed, this could “nudge” a close election such as Bush v. Gore in a desired direction. Hence we have our possible Google Nudge.

What happens when an election (or a primary contest) is projected to go down to the wire? Any good OR analyst working for a politician then has to consider the Google Nudge a mathematically significant variable. Politicians pay their mathematicians to perform two functions: identify these variables and manipulate them to favor the politician or not impact the election.

The people who run Google are brilliant engineers and better-than-passable business professionals. They have a good they can use to trade/leverage the politician running in a close election. It becomes time to either hold an auction or determine the outcome of the election. If Google is indifferent to which side wins, they can call up both campaigns and ask them “What’cha gonna’ do me?” The candidates then change their platforms/proposals to adopt a more Google-Compliant agenda. This allows Google to choose between which political candidate will be a more profitable/reliable Sugar Daddy for regulatory capture.

The Google Veto is more pernicious. Google could decide that Candidate A is a flaming rectal orifice who is completely iniquitous to the corporate interest. At this point, they will slant the results, flood the meme-zone with anti-A SEME and use their abilities to drive all 1.5 million voters to the polls to vote for B. Google would only have to hack one election to prove its point and permanently accrue a measure of power over national governance. This gives Google, Apple, Facebook and all the rest the ability to hack and rewire democracy to their tastes at any juncture where electoral politics are competitive.

This makes potential Google Nudges, Google Auctions and Google Vetoes stochastically unpredictable and chaotic anti-democratic features of the current system. It would lead to greater chaos, enhanced social entropy, stilted economic growth and eroded social cohesion. An unpredictable life is rarely pleasant, productive or beneficial. Silicon Valley thereby becomes a Liberaltarian engine of destruction that further accelerates the unraveling of America into Amerika. This digital branch of government could become yet another force that works to lay basic decency to nines.

*-Social Liberalism combined with crony capitalism. Think regulatory capture with open borders, anti-religious agitation and complete undermining of all non-governmental social support structures.

The Dual Nature of The Jewish People: Excellence And Self-Destruction

by Bill Waggoner

Let me share with you one of my favorite passages from Benjamin Disraeli’s Coningsby (1844):

Eschew political sentimentalism. What I contend is, that if you permit men to accumulate property, and they use that permission to a great extent, power is inseparable from that property, and it is in the last degree impolitic to make it the interest of any powerful class to oppose the institutions under which they live. The Jews, for example, independently of the capital qualities for citizenship which they possess in their industry, temperance, and energy and vivacity of mind, are a race essentially monarchical, deeply religious, and shrinking themselves from converts as from a calamity, are ever anxious to see the religious systems of the countries in which they live flourish; yet, since your society has become agitated in England, and powerful combinations menace your institutions, you find the once loyal Hebrew invariably arrayed in the same ranks as the leveller, and the latitudinarian, and prepared to support the policy which may even endanger his life and property, rather than tamely continue under a system which seeks to degrade him. The Tories lose an important election at a critical moment; ’tis the Jews come forward to vote against them. The Church is alarmed at the scheme of a latitudinarian university, and learns with relief that funds are not forthcoming for its establishment; a Jew immediately advances and endows it. Yet the Jews, Coningsby, are essentially Tories. Toryism, indeed, is but copied from the mighty prototype which has fashioned Europe. And every generation they must become more powerful and more dangerous to the society which is hostile to them. Do you think that the quiet humdrum persecution of a decorous representative of an English university can crush those who have successively baffled the Pharaohs, Nebuchadnezzar, Rome, and the Feudal ages? The fact is, you cannot destroy a pure race of the Caucasian organisation. It is a physiological fact; a simple law of nature, which has baffled Egyptian and Assyrian Kings, Roman Emperors, and Christian Inquisitors. No penal laws, no physical tortures, can effect that a superior race should be absorbed in an inferior, or be destroyed by it. The mixed persecuting races disappear; the pure persecuted race remains. And at this moment, in spite of centuries, of tens of centuries, of degradation, the Jewish mind exercises a vast influence on the affairs of Europe. I speak not of their laws, which you still obey; of their literature, with which your minds are saturated; but of the living Hebrew intellect.

‘You never observe a great intellectual movement in Europe in which the Jews do not greatly participate. The first Jesuits were Jews; that mysterious Russian Diplomacy which so alarms Western Europe is organised and principally carried on by Jews; that mighty revolution which is at this moment preparing in Germany, and which will be, in fact, a second and greater Reformation, and of which so little is as yet known in England, is entirely developing under the auspices of Jews, who almost monopolise the professorial chairs of Germany. Neander, the founder of Spiritual Christianity, and who is Regius Professor of Divinity in the University of Berlin, is a Jew. Benary, equally famous, and in the same University, is a Jew. Wehl, the Arabic Professor of Heidelberg, is a Jew. Years ago, when I was In Palestine, I met a German student who was accumulating materials for the History of Christianity, and studying the genius of the place; a modest and learned man. It was Wehl; then unknown, since become the first Arabic scholar of the day, and the author of the life of Mahomet. But for the German professors of this race, their name is Legion. I think there are more than ten at Berlin alone.

‘I told you just now that I was going up to town tomorrow, because I always made it a rule to interpose when affairs of State were on the carpet. Otherwise, I never interfere. I hear of peace and war in newspapers, but I am never alarmed, except when I am informed that the Sovereigns want treasure; then I know that monarchs are serious.

‘A few years back we were applied, to by Russia. Now, there has been no friendship between the Court of St. Petersburg and my family. It has Dutch connections, which have generally supplied it; and our representations in favour of the Polish Hebrews, a numerous race, but the most suffering and degraded of all the tribes, have not been very agreeable to the Czar. However, circumstances drew to an approximation between the Romanoffs and the Sidonias. I resolved to go myself to St. Petersburg. I had, on my arrival, an interview with the Russian Minister of Finance, Count Cancrin; I beheld the son of a Lithuanian Jew. The loan was connected with the affairs of Spain; I resolved on repairing to Spain from Russia. I travelled without intermission. I had an audience immediately on my arrival with the Spanish Minister, Senor Mendizabel; I beheld one like myself, the son of a Nuevo Christiano, a Jew of Arragon. In consequence of what transpired at Madrid, I went straight to Paris to consult the President of the French Council; I beheld the son of a French Jew, a hero, an imperial marshal, and very properly so, for who should be military heroes if not those who worship the Lord of Hosts?’

‘And is Soult a Hebrew?’

‘Yes, and others of the French marshals, and the most famous; Massena, for example; his real name was Manasseh: but to my anecdote. The consequence of our consultations was, that some Northern power should be applied to in a friendly and mediative capacity. We fixed on Prussia; and the President of the Council made an application to the Prussian Minister, who attended a few days after our conference. Count Arnim entered the cabinet, and I beheld a Prussian Jew. So you see, my dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.’

‘You startle, and deeply interest me.’

‘You must study physiology, my dear child. Pure races of Caucasus may be persecuted, but they cannot be despised, except by the brutal ignorance of some mongrel breed, that brandishes fagots and howls extermination, but is itself exterminated without persecution, by that irresistible law of Nature which is fatal to curs.’

‘But I come also from Caucasus,’ said Coningsby.

‘Verily; and thank your Creator for such a destiny: and your race is sufficiently pure. You come from the shores of the Northern Sea, land of the blue eye, and the golden hair, and the frank brow: ’tis a famous breed, with whom we Arabs have contended long; from whom we have suffered much: but these Goths, and Saxons, and Normans were doubtless great men.’

‘But so favoured by Nature, why has not your race produced great poets, great orators, great writers?’

‘Favoured by Nature and by Nature’s God, we produced the lyre of David; we gave you Isaiah and Ezekiel; they are our Olynthians, our Philippics. Favoured by Nature we still remain: but in exact proportion as we have been favoured by Nature we have been persecuted by Man. After a thousand struggles; after acts of heroic courage that Rome has never equalled; deeds of divine patriotism that Athens, and Sparta, and Carthage have never excelled; we have endured fifteen hundred years of supernatural slavery, during which, every device that can degrade or destroy man has been the destiny that we have sustained and baffled. The Hebrew child has entered adolescence only to learn that he was the Pariah of that ungrateful Europe that owes to him the best part of its laws, a fine portion of its literature, all its religion. Great poets require a public; we have been content with the immortal melodies that we sung more than two thousand years ago by the waters of Babylon and wept. They record our triumphs; they solace our affliction. Great orators are the creatures of popular assemblies; we were permitted only by stealth to meet even in our temples. And as for great writers, the catalogue is not blank. What are all the schoolmen, Aquinas himself, to Maimonides? And as for modern philosophy, all springs from Spinoza.

‘But the passionate and creative genius, that is the nearest link to Divinity, and which no human tyranny can destroy, though it can divert it; that should have stirred the hearts of nations by its inspired sympathy, or governed senates by its burning eloquence; has found a medium for its expression, to which, in spite of your prejudices and your evil passions, you have been obliged to bow. The ear, the voice, the fancy teeming with combinations, the imagination fervent with picture and emotion, that came from Caucasus, and which we have preserved unpolluted, have endowed us with almost the exclusive privilege of Music; that science of harmonious sounds, which the ancients recognised as most divine, and deified in the person of their most beautiful creation. I speak not of the past; though, were I to enter into the history of the lords of melody, you would find it the annals of Hebrew genius. But at this moment even, musical Europe is ours. There is not a company of singers, not an orchestra in a single capital, that is not crowded with our children under the feigned names which they adopt to conciliate the dark aversion which your posterity will some day disclaim with shame and disgust. Almost every great composer, skilled musician, almost every voice that ravishes you with its transporting strains, springs from our tribes. The catalogue is too vast to enumerate; too illustrious to dwell for a moment on secondary names, however eminent. Enough for us that the three great creative minds to whose exquisite inventions all nations at this moment yield, Rossini, Meyerbeer, Mendelssohn, are of Hebrew race; and little do your men of fashion, your muscadins of Paris, and your dandies of London, as they thrill into raptures at the notes of a Pasta or a Grisi, little do they suspect that they are offering their homage to “the sweet singers of Israel!”‘

Brett’s commentary: The above shows us why to appreciate literature more than polemic. It shows a depth of idea which is not one-dimensional, but introduces the complexity and seeming contradictions within each part.

Like many thriving societies, Indo-Europeans tend to became overwhelmed by their own momentum, and lose sight of the goal. At that point, they look outside of themselves for inspiration — and also for scapegoats.

Those who are scapegoated, in the meantime, are both aware of a path that is clearer to them than it is to their hosts, but also, are themselves in the grip of decline and fighting hard to avoid being scapegoated.

This pits each group against itself, and against each other, when in fact the Jewish approach is correct and should simply be adopted by the Indo-Europeans, much as they adopted Christianity, despite much of that originating in Greek and Hindu sources before Hebrew ones.

The Most Depressing Song Ever

John-Lennon-442302

When I talk to suicidal people that I care about, I get angry. I recognize that we can’t really save these people, that a will to live must come from within, and though we might help others regain this, we ultimately can’t do it for them. This painful frustration combines with a deep revulsion for listless, dejected, and lifeless modes of thought.

I end up in a similar rage when listening to John Lennon’s Imagine. Read through the lyrics with me and I’ll show you why.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Lennon is doing more than criticizing religion here; he is affirming plain, boring, hopeless materialism. Lennon preaches that this earth, this dirt, is all there is. All is merely meaningless atoms, occasionally being bound in a solid, but usually just wandering randomly and bouncing off other atoms. Nothing has any value or purpose beyond, we presume, human desires like fame, money, popularity and other palliative distractions.

It’s certainly easy for modern people, who have had no contact with traditional religion, who have no real understanding of what heaven is, to imagine it doesn’t exist. They don’t even have to try; they were born into this belief and follow it unquestioningly. This belief is the official view of science, government and most artists, just as it was the official policy of the French Revolution and Bolshevik rebels.

Despite this, the wife batterer presents this materialism the same way a teenage atheist smugly announces that he’s noticed that there wouldn’t be room for all the animals in the Arc, and so there is no God, and aren’t you amazed at how smart he is for figuring this out?

Imagine all the people
Living for today

This we don’t have to imagine! We already live in a sea of myopic hedonists with no attention span, and we’ll be seeing even more of them if current trends of low fertility of the highly intelligent and mass immigration from high time preference populations continue. Might as well tell a fish to imagine water.

Even more, in this statement we see Lennon’s real solution to humanity: stop aspiring, stop dreaming, just hang out and be cool with each other like good little hippies. That sounds groovy until you realize that someone will have to grow the food and fix the roads, so there’s going to be some kind of Soviet society to enforce that so all you hep cats can keep the love-in alive.

Is this as bleak as the USSR? You bet. It shows what happens when, like Lennon, your belief system is based in the idea that your own troubles are the fault of civilization, and the correct answer is to dismantle civilization and reduce it to a hipster party. Then when morning comes, the good feelings are gone and you must find some way to force the beautiful people to start the cleanup.

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do

The underlying assumption is that wars happen because there are countries, that conflict is merely the by-product of arbitrary lines in the ground. Conflict is in fact present in every ecosystem, and is a necessary result of very basic factors like resource finiteness. Borders, well defended borders, actually shield against this conflict.

Pacifism is another negative emotion. Where a sensible view would be that struggle creates evolution, the pacifist vision — a lot like heat-death — is to eliminate all conflict and just go with the flow. Endless compromise, settling, rationalization and justification, but no forward action.

Nothing to kill or die for

Here is the most depressing line in the song. It’s so blatantly chilling and bleak that we should question the sanity of those who enjoy the song. Do they not notice? Is this actually appealing to them?

Nothing to kill or die for means that there is nothing worth killing or dying for. All that exists is mundane, petty, worthless. It’s not clear how Lennon imagines children fitting into this picture — does he wish people didn’t love their children enough to kill and die for them, or does he wish no one had children? Does he imagine a loveless world or a suicidal population? Either way, this fantasy of his is fundamentally horrible and miserable.

And no religion too

Well, except Islam. We can’t ever oppose or offend Islam in any way. Our minds are so overthrown by political correctness that we can’t even imagine doing so.

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

Lennon really double-downstrokes that pacifism chord. Here we have the belief that the best thing to do in a knife fight is put down the knife and hug the opponent. A pattern emerges: this entire song is comprised of Leftist ideas that only work, only play out in the intended manner, in the imagination of a leftist.

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

When a leftist says “we hope you’ll join us”, consider it a threat.

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can

He means communism, and that’s sad enough, but consider the words at face value and it sounds like poverty — no one has anything. It’s no coincidence that that’s the reality that communism has historically moved towards. It is also not coincidental that those who preach “no possessions” tend to be, like John Lennon or Hugo Chavez, immensely wealthy.

No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

Yeah, we get it, international communism. It’s not a good idea, and it’s always accompanied by loads of greed and hunger. When does he stop to think that if it were this simple, it would have been solved already. Or that long-haired drop-outs have been preaching this kind of philosophy since the dawn of time, and every time it has been tried, it has failed.

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

You are a dreamer, John, and your dream is a miserable lie. So then why is this so popular? How can such an evil, depressing song be so popular?

The music itself is highly simplified and dull. If I play the tune in my head and allow an image to form (try it) what I see is padded walls and drooling patients being soothed by bland melodies as they’re beckoned to take their medications, sup their mush, and have their backsides wiped. This is not so far off from its intended purpose.

The song promises extreme comfort, complete shielding from nature and all its dangers, like hunger and death. It promises a sterile freedom from consequences and ultimate safety, showing us a world where nothing bad ever happens. This will all happen, if we only just imagine it. Ironically, it’s very similar to the popular notion of heaven conceived as a kind of Earth II, where things are pretty much like they are here, but without the meanies and bad stuff, and with comfy clouds and smooth jazz.

Now, no healthy person wants to die, or wants their loved ones to die, but retreating from danger into a psychology that denies its inherent value, a psychology that refuses to accept that death and pain are not just unavoidable, but vital to life results in a mind that has disengaged from life. Someone who adheres to this utopian pablum has abdicated from life, from actively participating in this world. This means they are also cut off from everything good. Blindfolded and groping, they will still experience pain and death, but won’t see why, won’t understand, and can only find solace in delusion.

These people, those who are moved to tears by this song, want to sleep, sleep forever in death. Freedom from conflict is impossible in this world, and can only be achieved by slipping into death.

Next time you see this song played in the wake of a terrorist attack, consider the audience as members of a death cult. They’ve just witness a terrible tragedy, an attack on them and their people, and they steadfastly refuse to address the cause, or retaliate in any way. They remain committed to the demise of their people.

It’s depressing observing a single suicidal person, and far more so observing a suicidal people. That’s why this is the most depressing song ever: it’s the song of a suicidal people.

Trump 2016: Make America Go Away

trump_2016

When the patient has no hope, we enter palliative care. Sedatives and painkillers abound. Food and water are withdrawn, to allow the body to exit with grace. When that moves too slowly, ever-increasing doses of morphine are administered. At some point, the soul flies away and the gasping corpse returns to the earth.

We are at that point with America (and come to think of it, Europe, too).

These were groups of people, but they were replaced by governments — by their own hands, I might add. The politicians offered benefits like merchants offer discounts, and We The People leapt for the freebie. Then they found out that the cost was the creation of a USSR-style permanent bureaucracy that determined who would succeed and who would fail on the basis of ideology.

America was designed around the idea that democracy could be constrained by rules on paper. If we cannot have the best leading us, we can plan for an average equal robot-citizen to take the role, and put enough rules in there to keep him from doing damage. Or could we? The history of America shows that this approach has failed.

It is time to put the dying beast out of its misery. Its purpose long ago destroyed, it survives from lack of anything else to do. But having no direction, it merely lingers in boredom and complaint to the point that it does not even fear death. This is not life; it is living death. Release it!

Government is not the nation. The nation is the nation: the people, their genetics, their culture and values. In saner times, we avoided government and had kings instead, people drawn from the nation who showed the best of its traits, and could lead it to excellence. But that hurt snowflake feelings: not everyone can be excellent.

It took them almost two centuries, but in 1968 the destroyers won. They did not want a nation. They wanted a jobs program with some kind of talking competition in which unexceptional people could become important just for destroying things and justifying it in creative ways.

At that point, America the organism died, and was replaced by Amerika the zombie-robot-ideology. Ever since that time, it has been miserable to live here. Jobs have replaced purpose, politics has replaced thinking, and a string of foreigners have replaced the people.

Mr. Trump, please do the right thing. Put this terminal patient to rest. Shoot it in the head. Declare a world war for transgender rights and ensure that the governments of USA and the EU perish in flames so that we do not have to watch the long slow decay to Brazil 2.0. Ruin government, so we can rebuild.

The remnant is out here. But they are paralyzed until the power falls. Burn it down, tear it down. Make America Go Away (MAGA). Send the EU to the fires of Hades. Smash all that is rotten and dead, and cover the earth in ash so something new can grow.

Anything is better than this.

Jody And The Carpetbaggers

the_scarlet_pimpernel

How can truth be invisible?

Answer: time. Nothing that is, is what is. What will be is what is. Cause leads to effect over the bridge of time. Very few can handle this, and prefer to treat what they see right now as if it were immutable.

This is projection of the Ego, of course. It must be in control at all times. If it is not in control, it rationalizes itself as being so. For its purposes, feeling in control is the same as being in control. The Ego is binary: it either feels totally powerful, or totally submissive, but either way it is in control of that choice.

One does not feel in control by admitting that for any attribute of life we see manifested in the world around us, its cause may be far away in space, time and appearance. Finding the cause of that effect is a research project that involves a great amount of risk of guessing wrongly, like trying to discover the culprit in an English locked-room mystery novel. Most of us will simply fail at it.

For this reason, the truth remains invisible. We look at effects as if they were their own causes, and assume that nothing that we see will ever change. And yet the one constant to life is that it will change, and it will do so through these invisible truths.

The tendency to rationalize explains how human societies die. Things start going badly, and people adjust their expectations to fit what is, instead of what was and in anticipation of what will be, because every action is just one point on a curve. This creates a static image that clashes with the shifting foundation around it, by parallax motion placed in momentum against reality, and increases entropy by its insistence on repetition of these bad approximations.

Our society is dying. It is a slow death: one starts as the ruler of the world, then becomes slowly more degenerate, and finally ends up being just like every other third world level society on earth. The people are chaotic and illogical in their actions, driven by emotional impulses and bodily desires. Government is kleptocracy. Everyone is an idiot, like a tin-pot dictator with his custom suit and rows of imaginary medals. Nothing works right and everything must be fudged into place, usually with bribes and gratuities.

Our people sleepwalk toward disaster. They are their own worst enemy: they rationalize instead of acting, and spend most of their energy finding new distractions to pursue in lieu of fixing the real problem. These distractions require us to struggle against them, along with the occasional real problem, and allow those who will carry out the final execution to move in amongst us.

American military men have a saying about “Jody.” Jody, or “Joe D. Guy” (“Joe the Guy”) is the man who stays back when other men go to war, and instead sneaks in the back door and steals their wives and girlfriends. Loving a man at war is hard; having a fling with Jody is the easiest thing on earth, and so when self-pity strikes, the WAGs go hog wild for the Jodies of the world. Jody is the collapse of civilization in a microcosm: avoiding the real task for the pleasurable distraction.

Jody lines up with another American icon, the carpetbagger. After the Civil War, the defeated South was subject to many regulations by victorious Union forces. These benefited anyone willing to sign the right papers, put down a little money, and begin working for the new regulatory regime. The people who showed up were swarthy people — not Western European — from the cities who haphazardly filled out the forms and began their role in the theft of the wealth of the South, and its women. They were called carpetbaggers because of their tendency to show up with a cheap suitcase and nothing else, but to leave in entirely more opulent style.

The problem of good people is that they are always subverted by Jody and the carpetbaggers. When Ronald Reagan went to (cold) war against the Soviet Union, perhaps the most vile and demeaning empire on earth, he had to put all his resources into that fight, and he compromised on everything else. This let Jody and the carpetbaggers in through the back door. Affirmative action, immigration amnesty, political correctness… the seeds of America’s most recent plateau collapse were sewn during the first heroic time she had experienced since the Leftist disaster of 1968.

It is the same way always. Busy fighting Mongols, our aristocrats were subverted from within by merchants. Busy fighting Nazis, the British became compromised by Communists at their universities. While fighting a civil war, the Americans let in the devil of the strong state and its neo-Communist ideology. Always, whenever the good are fighting far away, Jody and his carpetbaggers appear, and they always bring the same promise: easy pleasure now, if you just go to sleep and forget the long-term consequences… no more tears. It will soon be over.

Human civilization is like a man who draws his sidearm to defend himself, then finds that his hand has raised it to his head and is preparing to pull the trigger. He cannot stop himself, because he cannot control his limbs, and while one arm was fighting off the enemy, the other was readying itself for suicide. Bang! Splat!

Now we fight phantoms instead of Soviets. The great war for political correctness is a smoke screen. While it advances the Leftist narrative, what it really does is distract from the center falling out of the world we have come to know. Generation X saw this happen: they started growing up in the post-1970s restoration of American sanity, a Western European society, and ended their maturation in the diverse, corrupt and Leftist 1990s. It happens that quickly. A society looks one way, and when it looks back, Jody and the carpetbaggers have stolen the show.

Our conservatives are perhaps the worst because they base their philosophy in the idea of the rugged individual. “Just do what is right, and work hard, and you will come out on top,” they advise, sagely aware that they will be four-up and buried by the time cause becomes effect and the disaster is visible. Their idea is that while the enemy — Jody, carpetbaggers, thieves, liars, creeps — walks among us, we can “succeed” individually and everything will be fine. But when your society is hijacked and falls apart, nothing is fine. You just marginalize yourself through rationalization, which is what conservatives do every time, which is why they have done nothing to arrest the decay for the past three centuries.

The goal of the carpetbagger is simple: he comes to take money and power through the mystical hand of Government. He will leave with papers that say you owe him your time, and he will take your wives and daughters too when they see this exotic, prosperous powerful man compared to how weak you have become. It would not be hard to beat back the carpetbagger, although it would not be easy either, but when he has the flaming sword of Government and Law — and good, moral and upstanding conservatives take those seriously — he is unbeatable. And so it goes: society vanishes, and so do its people.

The subversives always target the people first, and then hide behind a camouflage net of intermediate targets. Yes, they want to control institutions and dominate business, but only as a means to an end. That end is destroying you, the genetic and cultural — the two are linked — group that rules the nation. In the mindset of the parasite, there is no tomorrow. He wages perpetual war against those more successful than himself, and has no thought in his head about what to do when he wins. This is why parasites tend to exterminate themselves after destroying the host, as happens in plagues and diseases.

While this will seem shocking to most people, there is no real distinction between immigration, takeover, carpet-bagging and genocide. They are different steps in the same process, and different degrees of the same intent. In nature, as in human life, any prosperous thing becomes a target. It will not be conquered outright, but seduced: by the easy words of salesmen, by the comforting tones of political speeches, and finally by the promise of “a better way” (hope! change!) from charlatan-clowns like Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama.

Another big secret is that it is easier to fight this than take any other approach. Dropping out, retreating to the countryside, “exit,” in situ secession and working hard/getting ahead are all variations of the same idea: maybe I can do what I want to, and the rest will leave me alone. But it will not. If you prosper, you are a target. If you are different, you are a target. What you think of as your life is not a cause, but an effect, the result of your civilization, the learning that came before, and the ability to be a sovereign nation with people like you.

All of that has been dispossessed from Western Europeans now. We no longer rule our own nations. Even if we did, most of our people are delusional and could never have figured this out in the first place, which was always the point behind democracy (the “palliative anaesthesia of nations”). The Other walks among us, and is the case when two populations co-exist, wants to take over and genocide us. The carpetbaggers rule industry and Jody has taken over the family.

In the face of this disaster, the most popular response will be denial and an attempt to find an easy solution that does not involve tackling the problem. We can always retreat into our minds, feelings and rationalizations. But the easiest method is the one that avoids suicide: depose the system that makes carpetbaggers powerful (democracy). Deport the Other and all of our homegrown parasites, preferably to different places. Restore our society by putting the best people, not the most cynical manipulators, in charge.

It is not as complex as 99.99% of your species want you to believe it is. Jody and the carpetbaggers will tell you it is impossible because they want you to lie down, go back to sleep, and wake up never again. The average white person just wants to get his retirement fund and a boat to go fishing on, something nice for himself for a change since he works just too hard. Women, college students and Bernie want to chase New Age hopes and hope for a painless death.

It’s up to the few of us who are not delusional, who see the end rushing toward us, and can understand cause-effect reasoning to come together, and not compromise or forgive our differences, but to beat them down. We need to be unified. We need to know what we want, and demand it in simplified form. Until then, Jody and his creepy friends will rule us, take over women, and continue erasing us from the map of history.

Caesar Comes To Fill A Vacuum

hail_caesar_yip_roc_heresy

So guess what life is like once !THE PEOPLE! Are put in charge. We’ll make this easy for you. Bloomberg News is covering the Venezuelan Lifestyle for us.

The tap in her apartment yields water only every two weeks. It comes out yellow. Her 8-month-old granddaughter is ill. And as Yajaira Espinoza, a 55-year-old hairdresser, made her way down the halls of Caracas university hospital on Friday, Zika cases evident in the rooms around her, a dense ash-filled smog enveloped the city.

Verily the Venezuelan Lifestyle is downstream from the Venezuelan Government. The Venezuelan Government is as malignant and petty as the sort of mean thing that high school bullies like to do to the Special Education kids. But that’s unfair! Not all socialists are like that (((NASALT))). I mean the North Korean and Brazilian ones are such nicer human beings. Oh, wait

Brazil’s leftist President Dilma Rousseff suffered a humiliating loss in a crucial impeachment vote in the lower house of Congress on Sunday and is almost certain to be forced from office months before the nation hosts the Olympics. Fireworks lit up the night sky in Brazil’s megacities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro after the opposition comfortably surpassed the two-thirds majority needed to send Rousseff for trial in the Senate on charges of manipulating budget accounts.

But the impeachment of a dishonest Socialist (sorry for the repetitive syntax) is relatively minor. It doesn’t mar all the wonderful things Brazil has accomplished as an emerging economy. Well, except for one tiny, little problem. President Dilma Rousseff is the rule instead of the exception. She only got in trouble when the entire culture of corruption and Mokita went stale and drowned in the high-crime drainage ditch that is Brazilian politics.

You see, this is the 28th effort that has been made to impeach President Rousseff. The other 27 were all put to bed by the “opposition” lead parliamentarian. The charges simply didn’t rise to the level of such a difficult proceeding. They didn’t until said parliamentarian was put under indictment himself by someone in Rousseff’s nefarious alliance. And these two aren’t the only ones corrupted. An estimated 60% of Brazil’s political leadership is potentially indictable under a variety of scandals and ethical lapses. What The Economist Magazine euphemistically dubs “The Petrobras Affair” offers a typical example of what happens when ethical diversity is your strength.

The key things to note here are that The Petrobras Affair sucks in myriad levels of Brazilian Government and thereby effects regulatory capture across a wide swath of governing and regulatory functions. No institution remains completely uncompromised. Another key thing to note is that all the major parties are involved. Nobody can run on clean government next election because they all have blood and dirt under their fingernails. If one guy squeals, he gets hammered. By his own as well as the opposition.

Well, one idiot didn’t get the Mutually Assured Destruction Memorandum. The Brazilian Federal Police have launched Operation Car Wash. President Rousseff should give it up. She isn’t ever going to come clean. The dirt is out there. Rousseff is going down. Her partisans will take down the opposition leads along with her. Nothing will be left in Brazil except !THE PEOPLE! who were dumb enough to hire this disreputable lot of tossers in the first place.

Then what comes along other than The Zika Virus and environmental collapse? Then we get the Restitutor Orbis. El Guapo. The Big, Shwingin’ Dick. People lose faith in the leadership. They fail to admit that the leadership reflects them. They hang or burn the leaders. They pledge their fealty to any Caesar who will clean up the drinking water, kill the mosquitoes and effectively make the trains run on time.

Napoleon rightfully claims that he found the crown of France lying in the gutter so he bent over and picked it up. The gutter is where the crown winds up if a Democratic Republic is overrun by demotism. The Caesar is the first guy willing to clean up the resulting mess. He is coming in Brazil and Venezuela both. He may not be too far away from our border either. Forget Whig History. Winter is coming.
