We Reach Peak SJW As Equality Includes Obesity

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Very few realize that the modern “social justice” movement has its roots centuries ago, in the French Revolution or The Enlightenment™ and The Renaissance™ before it. The idea is simple: do not focus on external order (society, God/gods, nature, logic) but instead look at the individual and its desires.

This came to a demi-peak in the “Me Generation,” otherwise known as the [expletive deleted] Baby Boomers, who insisted that only what flattered them as individuals was true, and they would act on that, and ignore the rest of reality. This of course causes isolation and paranoia because most of the world is filtered out, and so random events can occur without being anticipated, at any time.

But the Leftists got their hooks into the West after the 1960s, brought on mainly by how boring and corporate the 1950s were, causing anyone with spirit to revolt against our commercialized, democratized, and simplified mass culture. Unfortunately, as is almost always the case, the Revolution was a case of the cure being worse than the disease, as often happens.

And so for Generation X and others, we grew up in a time where adults insisted on what obviously was not true and denied what obviously was. Even to a child, this signals hopelessness: your civilization has opted to commit suicide, rather than looking deeply enough to see its actual problems, even though those are not that complicated. We were abandoned children.

The generation after us, the Millennials, they grew up believing the lies because they had never seen anything different. They never knew a time when people were honest, had culture, and managed to stay married without divorce or stay in love without a bribe. They had never seen pre-multicultural America, a place of trust and easy normal socialization, and were entirely lost and thus dependent on what their 1960s-style instructors told them.

Eventually, these cordycepted toxoplasma zombies gained enough power to elect a president, and then they assumed Utopia was near; it turned out that all their ideas failed, and so instead, we entered dystopia. But before that became apparent, because most people are incapable of analysis or thought beyond one level deep, we would see “peak Leftism” or “peak SJW” as the long tail whipped around. Witness the genius of obesity as a human right:

Following online backlash, Google is removing a planned feature in Maps that shows you how many calories you’d burn when in walking mode. Google’s attempt to promote a healthy lifestyle caused a number of people to lambast the feature on Twitter, claiming it would “shame” and even “trigger” those with eating disorders. Engadget reports:

Taking note of the negative reaction, Google is now dumping the experiment. It confirmed to Engadget that the update was briefly tested on iOS, and has been abandoned based on user feedback. As The Hill’s Taylor Lorenz noted in her tweets, there was no way to turn off the feature. Lorenz also claimed that using pink cupcakes as the unit of measurement was “lowkey aimed at women.” Others pointed out that Maps wasn’t the appropriate place for the update. After all, there are plenty of fitness and calorie counting apps that keep track of your activity and consumption — again emphasizing how misplaced the feature was.

The point of equality, although egalitarians will not tell you this, is to save the individual from being judged wrong for their opinions. Each of us tries to understand the world, and acts on our mental image of it, and when we screw up, it means that we were too neurotic, delusional, dysfunctional or otherwise less-than-superior to handle that simple task. Sneers and scorn rise like locusts from a field of dead corn.

As a result, egalitarians try a simple formula, which might be said to be “good = bad” or at least that good and bad are arbitrary, relativistic and irrelevant, so we might as well approve of everyone at the same social level. Their great fear is losing social position by being inept, and so they have banished judgment for ineptitude, at least in the public forums where it once kept our leaders competent.

We can extend this to any choice by the individual. No one should lose social status, or be punished, or be made to feel bad, for any choice. Being obese, on drugs, metrosexual, incompetent or anything else is just an arbitrary choice, you see, because everything is relative. It is not that we have a purpose, or a world to which we can objectively derive adaptive strategies, but a question of what the individual wants.

If you wanted greater proof that egalitarianism is individualism, and collectivism is merely a shield for the individual to use others to advance his own agenda, it cannot be found than in this great panic over criticism of obesity. Not even criticism; Google simply wanted to help us all stay fit. Maybe now they are reconsidering the monster they have been supporting.

Ethnography of Civilization Collapse

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Tendentious bashers such as myself have a habit of reminding you that history runs in cycles, and if a civilization does not restart its cycle by restoring traditional society, it goes off into third world style subsistence living because of a lack of social order, and ends up a mixed-race shadow of its former self.

The “mixed-race” part is crucial because, throughout history, bad leaders have used diversity as a means of shoring up their own power. When they need support, they can count on those people who depend on them, namely the various different types of minorities who are allied against the majority, whose interest does not reflect their own.

When you encounter a failed civilization, you will find shorter and weaker people, generally without much intelligence but weighted toward the verbal and not the spatial, with mystical traditions based on primitive symbols, who are fundamentally comfortable living in a society where corruption takes a third off every deal and nothing ever gets done, or done right.

Third world people are individualists, and to them, the burden of struggling to have social order is too much relative to how they want to enjoy life, which is just not worrying too much. Very carefree individuals in these parts, and they seem very happy, but they never produce anything of greatness. Their society demands little of them, so they spend most of their time on themselves.

We can tell that this is the case by looking at a civilization that faded away long ago:

Researchers from the University of Tuebingen and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, both in Germany, have decoded the genome of ancient Egyptians for the first time, with unexpected results.

Publishing its findings in Nature Communications, the study concluded that preserved remains found in Abusir-el Meleq, Middle Egypt, were closest genetic relatives of Neolithic and Bronze Age populations from the Near East, Anatolia and Eastern Mediterranean Europeans.

Modern Egyptians, by comparison, share much more DNA with sub-Saharan populations.

In other words, ancient remains showed genetic consistency; modern genetics show the influence of diversity. This society became more diverse as it failed, and it does not necessarily matter what the diversity was, only that the genetic consistency of a network of traits was broken up and replaced by a more chaotic, less competent biological compromise.

This applies to ethnic groups as well. Mixed-ethnic states, especially those with hybridization, even trace hybridization, tend to perform less well than homogeneous nations. Most likely, when places like Egypt become diverse, it is through trace admixture; few people will marry and mate with the Other, but someone who is only an eighth other they can accept, until those are the only option and the original ethnic group is long gone.

When people talk about diversity, they often attempt to discuss it through “problems”: how to manage crime, how to indoctrinate the newcomers in our Constitution, how to assimilate them, why to make them equally accepted so they will not riot. But there is only one real problem, which is the replacement of the founding ethnic group and, with it, a loss of whatever traits it had that allowed the society to succeed in the first place.

Marginal Groups Attract Marginal People

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Another high-profile “Nazi” has defected, mainly because this happens every few years, with the Nazi in question discovering that he is gay, Jewish, part-black or some other “contradictory” aspect that fascinates the Left who truly believe that if you oppose something, you must secretly love it. Never mind that this describes their relationship to power, not how the rest of us work.

In this case, the subject in question really won the lottery. He was not only gay, but part-Jewish, and so he has a get-out-of-jail-free card of unprecedented magnitude. In short, by revealing those details, he was able to erase his Nazi past in a minute and make himself a pet of the ruling elites, who are always Leftist unless they are actually good.

The media adore these sorts of stories:

A prominent neo-Nazi and former organiser of the National Front has given up his far-right views as well as revealed he is gay and has Jewish heritage.

Kevin Wilshaw was a high-profile figure of the National Front in the 1980s and was speaking at extreme right events as recently as this year.

Luckily, our journalists-in-chief are too simple-minded to realize that not just is this not unusual, it is the norm, and fits in with a pattern of anti-social and dysfunctional behavior by white nationalists. Extremist philosophies attract those who only feel accepted when they think their aberrant behavior will not be seen as abnormal.

Consider the case of Frank Collin, née Cohen:

Frank Joseph Collin is most often associated in the public mind as the neo-Nazi who threatened in 1977 to march and rally in Skokie, a predominately Jewish suburb of Chicago.

…The infamous Frank Joseph Collin (the half-Jewish, ex-neo-Nazi, and convicted pederast) is now also a witch.

The Illinois Corrections Department released Collin after three years, a “minimum time served,” from his 1980 conviction of sexually molesting young boys. Since 1983 Collin has established himself as a published author, editor, and anti-science proponent.

But the list goes on. There’s Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr., who shot up a Jewish community center, killing three people — none of whom were Jewish — after falling out with his former comrades because he admitted he was a police informer.

An uncomfortable overlap with drugs, police informers, pedophilia and domestic abuse seems to chase the far-Right around because when you recruit from the most disaffected members of society, you also get some seriously unstable people who look at the movement and think, “Well, no one will notice my weirdness there.”

The only way to beat this is to go legit and have a movement that only advocates policy-level changes, such as abolishing diversity and repatriating those who are not Western European, and does not get into extremist symbolism, violence fetishism or other dysfunctional behaviors.

We fear becoming a mainstream party on the farthest reaches of the Right because every mainstream party has quickly shifted Leftward. That happens when you try to recruit a mass audience, but not when you target the sensible few. It is possible to be mainstream without being corrupted, although you will never be as mainstream as the true McCheeseburger parties which spin scapegoat/victimhood fables for fools.

As the Alt Right rises, it is making the decision to avoid the mistakes of white nationalism, including its over-reliance on the alienated which resulted in it becoming a warm and welcoming host for the mentally unstable. Our future lies in having real ideas, working toward them, and ignoring the human chaos that blights every underground movement.

Do We Really Want To Live Like This?

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

One of the worst Cuck Jobs you’ll ever hear from the pulpit happens when your contemporary Reverend Iwanna SWPLToo opens The Good Book to Acts 10:9-18. After sitting through purge-and-vomit instead fire-and-brimstone, I wanted to log into to my training program at work and see if could claim that homily as my annual diworsity brainwashing session and skip the pablum from HR.

About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.” “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.” The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.” This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven. While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius found out where Simon’s house was and stopped at the gate. They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there.

You see, Reverand Iwanna SWPLToo seems to believe we just need to take anyone into the church who claims to want in the door. That excluding them on any grounds makes you a sinner that fails to understand Christianity. Putting a high-pass filter in place would lead us straight down the broad thoroughfare of damnation that AC/DC sings about so nicely. He then informed us if we didn’t all agree with this message he would take his act back home to Arlington, Texas. I figured it was nice he favored open borders and free movement and hoped to someday soon bid him a fond farewell while the church looked for a minister who could read The New Testament and not imbue it with Progressive, New-Fangled Amorality.

So what’s wrong with the SWPL interpretation of this old tale from the scriptures? According to Der Spiegel, nothing the old East German Stasi couldn’t stitch right up. I mean once you’ve decided everyone, literally everyone, regardless of their standards of personal conduct are welcome, you get pretty much what you tolerate. It’s just plain common sense to ask if God would call sepsis clean. Maybe God would call intestinal rotifers and cancer tumors clean as well. It was pretty harsh of Old Jesus to discriminate against Legion for having an excremental résumé. He did ask Christ nicely not to render him homeless.

How would the secret police get involved in a theological discussion with Communism now consigned to corrupt, declining institutions like The United States Military Academy at West Point, New York? It gets involved once Reverend Iwanna SWPLToo’s vision completely dominates a society. You see Germany deigns to assume anything that crap and take a walk has been called clean by whatever they believe in since Nietzsche signed Gnon’s death certificate. So as the old game show trope goes, “Show ’em what they win, Dom Pardo!”

The assassin from Breitscheidplatz, Anis Amri, murdered twelve people and injured almost 100 more. Many of them are traumatized to the present day, some still in the hospital, some will remain nursing care for their whole lives. Could the attack have been prevented? In his report, former Federal Prosecutor Jost assumes at least that Amri could have been arrested in the summer or autumn of 2016 with “high probability” – if the police and the public prosecutors had done their work properly.

Pretty typical conclusion. Better police work would prevent criminals from doing crime. How does this even implicitly indict our true Cuck-Christian duty to !CELEBRATE! diversity? Umm, let’s discuss what proper police work has to entail in order to run the managerial state that can manage diversity.

The LKA observed Amri only for a few weeks. And even though the Berlin police in the meantime considered him to be the most urgent case in the capital, she observed the Islamists only sporadically during this period. Jost is sober: “All observations are limited to the weekdays Monday to Friday, even during the weeks in which Amri ranks first among the” Berliners “. On weekends and holidays, no observers take place.” The ex-federal prosecutor concludes that the findings of Amris’s Islamist activities alone would not have sufficed to put him under investigation. However, from his point of view, it would have given him a great opportunity to get him out of circulation because of drug trafficking.

So my questions are not whether the German neo-Stazis should have received better direction from Zee Merkel’s totally non-Communist politburo. My question is why do we allow elements into Western Society that require us to emulate the failures of the CCCP to avoid having them deliberately and maliciously blow us up or run us over at a Christmas Market? Who in their right mind wants to live like that? Acts 10 aside, we were told by a higher authority than Saint Luke that you can judge a tree by its fruits and that those who don’t bear the desired fruit for the Kingdom of Heaven are tossed into the fire and burned.

We have a theological duty to to read our scripture properly. The injunction is against rejecting that which God made clean. Where does Acts or any other book of the New Testament claim everything is de facto clean? It doesn’t. Reverend Iwanna SWPLToo is deliberately implying valid philosophical induction without an effective base case. Accepting Cornelius the highly decent and squared away Roman Centurian is several standard deviations away from accepting anything that walks out of Left Point with a commission as a 2LT. Peter knew it. Rev. SWPLToo and Angela Merkel know it well. Acts 10:9-18 is being used as a normative bait and switch. Buy not the used mechanical conveyance using an internal combustion engine from any preacher quoting Chapter 10 of Acts.

Why the dishonesty from people we should otherwise be able to rely upon and trust? Maybe I asked the wrong question when I asked who in their right minds would want to live in a society that requires a Stasi? The real question here is who benefits from deracinating a society and culture until it requires a Stasi. Importing fear imports the need for control. The need for control empowers the tyrant. The society that accepts literally everything can only be preserved in the end by a despotism. It can only exist under the baleful, watching glare of The Lidless Eye.

Sharia Law Courts In The UK Show Us The Internal Balkanization Which Happens With Diversity

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Diversity makes no sense. Different groups act differently because they come from different origins, therefore different traits were rewarded, therefore they are wired differently. Even more, every group has an interest in being itself, because no one has your back like someone who is genetically bonded to you, like an extended family.

When fools — driven by the siren song of power and wealth that equality promises — decide to mix these groups, they unleash the stored tensions there. Each group realizes that its winning strategy is to appear the victim while secretly acting against other groups, so that it can assume power and either drive them out or genetically absorb them, a strategy which only works for third world groups.

These truths were well-known to those who came before us. In fact, most of what is written on this blog would appear common sense to them, but after years of assault with propaganda and the bad breeding that comes with egalitarianism, most of our people are stupefied and unable to see the plain reality of any situation.

No one is surprised when they sleep through something momentous like the adoption of sharia law in the UK:

An estimated 30 sharia councils exist in the UK, giving Islamic divorce certificates and advice on other aspects of religious law. They have garnered fierce criticism, particularly for their treatment of women seeking religious divorces, who make up the core clientele.

Sharia is the Islamic legal system, derived from the Koran and the rulings of Islamic scholars, known as fatwas. As well as providing a code for living – including prayers, fasting and donations to the poor – sharia in some countries such as Saudi Arabia also lays down punishments as extreme as cutting off a hand or death by stoning for adultery.

Diversity places the host nation into a paradox: it either demands that its newcomers “assimilate,” which destroys their culture and identity, or it hosts them in Chinatowns, where they can have their culture and practices, but still interact with the mainstream. The Chinatown model has won out, and so the UK has sharia courts.

Naturally this bodes for conflict much as diversity itself does. Sharia law is distinct from English law, or there would be no need for sharia courts; this difference means that clashes are inevitable. And when they happen, loyalty will be divided, because much as with the paradox of diversity, migrants must either reject who they are or accept being second-class citizens living in their own ghetto.

Future generations will look back on this stuff and laugh. They will see that because we chose equality, we rejected the distinction between right or wrong and good or bad, and as a result, mired ourselves in the “grey areas” and failed to see where incompatibility clearly existed. As a result, we stockpiled causes for future conflict while obediently denying that any paradox existed.

We Predicted It: The New Generation Of Nationalists Support Israel

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

PJ Media reports that the new generation of European Nationalists are proud supporters of Israel:

The resurgent nationalists who made the Alternative fuer Deutschland into Germany’s third-largest party and the Austrian Freedom Party into that country’s second-largest (and a likely member of a new governing coalition) have an extreme-right reputation, but they are now the most pro-Israel parties in Europe.

…There are European nationalists who support Israel out of conviction rather than expediency. They admire the accomplishments of the Jewish State, moral as well as military or commercial. They observe that Israeli women bear on average 3 children compared to just 1.3 in Germany. They wish that Europeans could show the same love of country and culture that the Jews evince in Israel, and the same willingness to defend themselves.

Nationalists have realized that Zionism is a form of nationalism, and that all nationalists share a quest, which is to beat back Leftism and establish traditional societies. We may not be the same group, but we are fighting for the same thing.

As written about in the past here, Israel has been in the news demonstrating the necessity of nationalism, partially vindicating Hitler, showing us how to end diversity, repelling globalism, validating race science, restoring nationalism, innovating tactics for the New Right, and revealing the Leftist intent to use diversity as a weapon.

In addition, it has been pointed out here that internationalism is exterminating world Jewry and that the “Jewish Question” is the wrong question, because Western Civilization has been laid to waste by lower caste revolt, and the cause and solution are therefore both in our hands. If we assign agency for our fate to another group by scapegoating them, we remove from ourselves the ability to change our future, and thus commit suicide; if we admit that no matter what contributing forces may have been, the core and root of our problem was entirely within our society and caused by the revolt of peasants and their mercantile enablers in our Vaisya caste, then we have a chance of fixing it.

Besides, the “JQ” is entirely off-base when it comes to actual causes and solutions, nationalists should stick together, “Jews” is often a proxy for “Leftist Jews” aka regular insane Leftists who are of Jewish origin, a perfect Holocaust™ 2.0 would not solve our problems, the Left hates Jews, Jews have a historical home in Israel, separation benefits both parties, Jews did not create Western Liberalism since it pre-dates Judaism, Jewish Leftists are attempting to exterminate Jews, and that anti-Semitism makes us into monsters and leads us away from our actual objectives toward symbolic ones.

We can say, forthrightly, that no two civilizations can co-exist in the same space, and most Jews will agree with us. When we start looking for an external force to blame for our downfall, we have surrendered agency and ignored the internal factors that caused it, and as a result, we have blinded ourselves to what we need to fix, namely our sudden lack of desire to be virtuous. Anti-Semitism is emotionally satisfying but it misses the point of nationalism which is that each group must go its own way. Yes, we are different groups but joining a hate cult just removes responsibility for results and replaces them with symbolism, namely crushing of the antithesis as a means of removing the Other and fixing all of our problems, which is much vaster than ethnic cruelty and racial scapegoating can provide. Our problems are of our own cause and are our own to solve.

As the world turns away from the Age of Ideology, people are increasingly looking toward organic and naturalistic ways of life such as traditionalism, nationalism, localism, aristocracy and religious customs. Israel is leading the way away from modernity and toward this new future, so are natural allies for the new nationalists in Europe who are doing the same, after we have been told for two centuries that our impulses are wrong and the Leftists know better. It turns out that the Leftists were 100% wrong all along, and so now we are clearing away the dead, cleaning up the mess, and getting ready to restore Western Civilization so we can move on toward a new future.

Asians Will Take Over Your World While You Sleep Like The New York Times

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Trigger Warning: JPW is about say something RAAAYYYCIST! Truly racist. Racist like no racist has ever raceturbated before. Here goes. Man, those Asians are a pain. They’re crapping all over my Platinum Edition Whitebread Privilege Visa Card. They’re killing us! It’s Yellow Peril, Man. YELLOW.FRIKKEN.PERIL.

At least, The New York Times says so.

THIS is an awkward question, but here goes: Why are Asian-Americans so successful in America? It’s no secret that Asian-Americans are disproportionately stars in American schools, and even in American society as a whole. Census data show that Americans of Asian heritage earn more than other groups, including whites. Asian-Americans also have higher educational attainment than any other group.

Now, I’ll have to fess up. That whole opening paragraph was not just a hook, but also a pathetic cry for attention. (Or at least readership). I don’t find their success awkward. I find the economic and social rise of Asian-Americans no more awkward than say the success of Donald Trump or Kobe Bryant. Asian-American success is not being used as an excuse to justify to further taxation of my paycheck to pay for another welfare program, and that is the only reason that Nicholas Kristoff and the rest of the NYT zombies find that the success of Asian-Americans is “problematic.”

If you’re a Progressive SJW, then the last thing you want to see is somebody demonstrating how decent people make actual progress. If someone is succeeding, then the deck is not stacked after all, and the programs that Progressives insist are necessary are in fact simply wealth transfer. That is why Nicholas Kristof finds this awkward. Finding that nobody needs you could really prove ackward to most ego-maniacal, Progressive SWPLs and the RINOs who imitate them.

Watch Kristof as he totally botches the age-old chicken and egg problem.

A new scholarly book, “The Asian American Achievement Paradox,” by Jennifer Lee and Min Zhou, notes that Asian-American immigrants in recent decades have started with one advantage: They are highly educated, more so even than the average American. These immigrants are disproportionately doctors, research scientists and other highly educated professionals.

It’s not a paradox, dumbasses. Asians were not born as doctors, lawyers and CEOs. They made their way by succeeding in our education system. It is a well-known whisper secret that much of this is through cheating, but just the same, the Asian-American youth are not distracted by mass culture, progressivism, neurotic parents, football, consumerism or any of the other American blights. They just put their heads down and achieve, at least in the education system, and the way our society is set up, this guarantees them a decent income.

The plus side of this is that they are hard-working, but the downside is that they are only as good as academia can make them, and as we have seen before, “hard work” by itself is idolatry, because all good things are measured by results. Do we want to replace ourselves with obedient but unquestioning people? That will surely remove the last bit of “Western” from “Western Civilization.” Speaking of results, Kristof lights up and joint and tries to explain away Asian-American success with a chaotic rant about IQ:

Richard Nisbett, a professor of psychology who has written an excellent book about intelligence, cites a study that followed a pool of Chinese-American children and a pool of white children into adulthood. The two groups started out with the same scores on I.Q. tests, but in the end 55 percent of the Asian-Americans entered high-status occupations, compared with one-third of the whites. To succeed as a manager, whites needed an I.Q. of 100, while Chinese-Americans needed an I.Q. of only 93.

IQ is only useful when applied to “prove” a point a Leftist wants to make; otherwise it is pseudo-science and a good sign that you are a racist. Kristof then hits the joint much harder and gets fully-baked to explain the IQ-success differential between Whites and Chinese.

Another factor in Asian scholastic success may be the interaction of social stereotypes and self-confidence. Scholars like Claude Steele have found that blacks sometimes suffer from “stereotype threat”: Anxiety from negative stereotypes impairs performance. Lee and Zhou argue that Asian-Americans sometimes ride on the opposite of “stereotype threat,” a “stereotype promise” that they will be smart and hard-working.

It’s easier than that. Much easier than that. If you call an Asian kid a bastard, there’s a pretty strong chance that you can only mean it figuratively. They tend to marry prior to reproduction and then stay married. 80% of Asian kids live with both of their parents. 68% of Whites, 52% of Hispanics and 29% of Blacks do the same. Your start determines your finish. Two parents raise better children than one. Stable environments produce better outcomes than family chaos.

If you treat your kids the way Boomer parents typically treated Generation X, then you can expect a bunch of sperged-out losers on drugs who will spend their adult lives trying to figure out what went wrong in their childhood lives. Parents get a return commensurate to their investment in their offspring. Asians dollar cost average. They put time, money and effort into their kids year-upon-year. It’s a team effort. The children look like geniuses, but the parents are like the second row of a rugby scrum, driving the front row on to success.

That’s the problem with those darn Asians: they do the opposite of what Harvard, Yale and the other Progressives tell us to do. Their kids then end up on scholarship to Harvard or Yale, and soon they will own America. And no one will blame them, because they did what worked while Caucasians had their heads in the air, stoned on Progressive dogma that turned out to be totally unrealistic.

America Cannot Control Its Leftists, So Declares A State Of Emergency Over Possibly Upsetting Words

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

For the Left, success is easy because it uses the methods of a cult or criminal gang. You must declare an enemy who is obstructing the achievement of the only way to succeed, then show how that enemy is holding back the share of the loot that goes to each person, and then you must portray this future golden land in such a way that it makes your audience feel like it will solve all of their problems.

Modern Leftism has succeeded for the last seventy years by using race as a dog whistle. Racists are bad, so anything which is called racist is an impediment to progress, peace, justice, equality, happiness, legal marijuana, or whatever else they can make it stick to. Hillary Clinton attempted to do this when she mentioned the Alt Right in her speech, but really, she merely emboldened an already inevitable revolution.

People are tired of the age of ideology. It promised a golden land and delivered a Soviet wasteland covered in paste-on brick finish. It hoodwinked us by appealing to our lowest urges, basically for anarchy and unearned wealth, and then befuddled us with lust through sexual liberation, drugs through the culture war, and an endless array of theories which are basically irrelevant to anything but themselves.

As the Alt Right surge sweeps the land, the Left is reacting badly because they realize that, unlike the Right, the Left has only one wall around its citadel. If the theory dies, so dies the Leftist movement, and so they are doubling down on anything that can be used to defend egalitarianism, with diversity at the forefront.

Not surprisingly, panicked Leftists who are seeing their justification for their lifestyles about to go up in smoke are enraged and rioting. The Alt Right, betrayed by police at several events, has capitalized on this by essentially telling local communities that they either protect free speech, or the Alt Right will show up with Antifa in tow, and Antifa will then as usual burn, vandalize, loot and destroy.

Florida is trying to get out of this by declaring a state of emergency, which gives them expanded police powers:

Spencer is scheduled to speak at the University of Florida campus in Gainesville on Thursday.

Scott declared the state of emergency in Alachua County, noting that Spencer’s speeches in other states have in the past “sparked protests and counter-protests resulting in episodes of violence, civil unrest and multiple arrests,” according to the Tampa Bay Times.

…”The left wing establishment is built around anti-white policies,” Spencer told the group.

This is typical democratic thinking: instead of fixing the problem, stop whatever makes the problem visible. The Alt Right is a whistleblower telling America that not only is our multicultural nation-state dead in the water, but that our principles are all garbage, and we are living through the Fall of Rome 2.0 with only our social media presence to keep us from going insane.

Florida may declare a state of emergency, but they cannot stop the decentralized nature of riots. Now it is the Left, who usually uses riots as a weapon, who must face their own tactics used against them as the Alt Right instigates these riots by… speaking words that cause some people to question their existential value and path in life. Nothing more.

If we were looking for a sign that Rome has truly fallen, no better one could be presented than this ridiculous response to an innocent request to be heard.

Outsiders Forever: The Plight Of Near-Whites In White Society

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Disgraced and disheveled starlet groper Harvey Weinstein made them news when someone forgot to pay image protection money and the casting couch, which everyone has known about for almost a century, was thrust into the public light. Weinstein was not the bad guy he was made out to be, but a businessman offering to use his position of power to give exposure to starlets in exchange for, er, exposure of a different kind.

On a broader level, his predictable but unexpected downfall reveals to us the struggle of near-whites in a white society that they can never enter because genetically, they belong to a different society. As Tablet Magazine reveals, Weinstein’s desires echo a familiar theme for outsiders who can never quite be white:

Roth captured the particular anxiety of the Jewish American man in the twentieth century, finally coming into power but, having not grown up with it, unsure of what he’s supposed to do now. All those years craving unattainable Gentiles, but never before the means to entice them. The result is Alexander Portnoy of Portnoy’s Complaint, a grown man whose emotional and sexual life is still all one big performance piece, just as it had been when he was a teenager and pleasured himself with a piece of liver.

Roth is crap; for whatever reason, Jews cannot do literature or classical music, at least at any level that matches the upper echelon of the Western canon. But he hits on the outsider nature of being a near-white, which is to have many of the same abilities as the WASP elite, but never to be able to join. Whether Jewish, Irish, Italian, Greek, Polish or half-Syrian like Steve Jobs, the boundary is always there.

Through this condition we can see how diversity fails those that it claims to raise: they may be granted access to a society, but they can never become part of its founding group or do what that group did, so they are thrust into the role of actors, playing out a script in which they emulate but can never join the core of that society.

This makes me think of friends who, half-Jewish and half-WASP, found themselves with a foothold in both groups, but an identity in neither. They ended up alienated from two communities instead of one, except for a very few who chose an identity early and then buried the other half of their heritage. The ones who chose to be Jewish turned out happier.

Diversity conveys social acceptance, but that is different than membership in a group, which since it is genetic, excludes all but the lucky hybrids who are both able to pass, visually, for a member of that group, and able to act like members of that group through an unconscious tendency. Otherwise, they live in constant fear of being found out and revealed as frauds.

This is why Weinstein used a vast network of allies cultivated through quid-pro-quo arrangements in order to conceal his perversity, much like many other Hollywood power brokers are doing so today:

After intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for Lombardo and unknown discussions well above my head at the Times, the story was gutted.

I was told at the time that Weinstein had visited the newsroom in person to make his displeasure known. I knew he was a major advertiser in the Times, and that he was a powerful person overall.

One of the factors that drives outsider success is that by definition they cannot join that society, so they have to fake it, which requires attaining power and wealth to feel good about themselves at a minimum, where natives have the “privilege” of feeling at home in their skin in a country created by people like them, for people like them, exhibiting the preferences and aesthetics of people like them.

This means that, like Jay Gatsby (née Gatz) in The Great Gatsby, they are forever outsiders. They can imitate, but not fully join, and this is as much a consequence of their inner knowledge as external constraints. Diversity does not work. It makes alienated imitators of us all.

Lessons for Socialization

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

The recent emergence of the BBC international news service in pidgin English reminds us that our mode of communication determines what we can successfully express. If we render ourselves in simplistic language, we will make incomplete and misleading points.

This spurs the large question of how to talk to one another, which must consider a few vital challenges:

  1. The emergence of “populism” effectively ruptured media communications in the entire Western hemisphere. The old language is dead, and the two sides are polarizing and withdrawing.
  2. Introspection revealed that a different mindset is required because our biggest risk is in fact not Iran, but our social organization.
  3. In the feverish attempt to do good, people on the right refer to “not punching right” or even debating “differently.”

Talking while using the wrong words can cause serious reputational and financial losses, which means that we should establish a new framework for discourse, starting with standard language, instead of emulating the Left and applying “community standards” as a means of making language simplistic in ways that exclude certain “problematic” viewpoints.

S.C. Hickman reminds us that societies have always struggled with this, and to address it, have created not safe spaces from expression, but spaces where expression can safely tackle difficult and normally contentious issues:

Remember invective and satiric wit or jibes came out of the traditions of Athenian aristocrats rather than commoners. Athenian prohibitions on slander were curtailed by the licensed freedom of speech (parrhesia) of a religious festival. So that both Comedy and Satyr plays arose and emerged out of traditional religious festivals where political invective and humor could be assayed whereas in real life it was deemed anathema and would entail slander and ultimately banishment or worse, death against any and all who used it.

…Those like Ann Coulter are effective and best sellers: biting humor and scathing farce triumph, where serious candor of political intelligence are at best filtered through academic spinsters.

Freedom of speech in the purest form entails a shouting contest or competition for the wittiest put-down, so many societies curtail it. To avoid losing what might be said, they instead raise the bar, and force it to be inserted into a political oration, theatrical production or lengthy treatise.

This was in fact the original idea behind American freedom of speech, which was designed to protect political, social and philosophical critiques written in newspapers or declaimed from street corners. Only recently has it come to mean the ability to publish pornography, nearly libelous insinuations of the media, rants filled with obscenities and cretinous modern art.

But what is acceptable depends on the nature of the society. Nick Land made a few observations of this nature:

  • High-trust societies are even more repulsive than low-trust societies
  • Which disgusts you more, Somalia or Sweden? The scorpion or the scorpion-licker?
  • Better to dwell among cannibals than Cathedral-zombies
  • When science collides with sacred values, it’s howled down (and if possible) suppressed.

For a society to work, it must have both wealth/production and some form of cooperation. Different structures can provide this in varying degrees. We can see this process unfolding in Africa today.

Liberal democracies of a diverse nature require that the local population, in order for cooperation to work, forfeit some of its traditions including its standards of safety. As seen in South Africa under Nelson Mandela, or in Zimbabwe with Robert Mugabe, this model prioritizes cooperation of all groups which sacrifices the standard of whatever group has higher or more complex traditions.

In contrast, the China colonization of Africa promotes “normalization” which instead of focusing on diversity, looks to whatever tribe is dominant in a region and channels wealth and power to them. This tends to strengthen local safety and stability instead of prioritizing defense of the rights of minority tribes.

The former model is failing in part because of its high cost of administration, but mostly because it forces normalization to a minimum instead of emphasizing striving for a maximum as exhibited by the most successful group in the region. An old African proverb holds that when fish and crabs are caught in a net, the crabs pull the fish down, because if the crabs are trapped and doomed, they feel that no one should escape that same fate.

Looking into these two examples, we see an axis between acceptance and intrusion. Acceptance is a sense of belonging to an environment; we know that in order to develop potential among children, each child must feel innately and irrevocably accepted, something only made possible through a friendly, tolerant and somewhat mandatory environment.

In contrast, adulthood shows us intrusion. The child must graduate school and enter the less-than-friendly job market where extroverted people have a better chance of survival because they crave and seek a way of finding personal — not universal — acceptance in the previously unknown territory of the workplace.

Introverted people, because they are self-guided, seek acceptance when they are young because they know that if left alone, they will learn what they need to and grow at their own pace. Extroverts, on the other hand, perceive a sense of harm and injustice if they are not allowed to participate, which when they are young and socially inept is a possibility, so they want a system which cannot demote them for being wrong or selfish.

Extroverts constantly seek social acceptance on an individual level into adulthood. If there is a workplace problem, the extrovert will seek out the parties involved to negotiate a resolution, where the introvert will engage in avoidance or confrontation of a legalistic nature, as we see with whistle-blowers who choose to detonate a situation rather than attempt to impose a solution internal to the organization.

In traditional society, this was addressed by having different roles for introverts and extroverts. Introverts handle analysis and principles well; extroverts handle other people well. Talented introverts drifted toward the top because they were less likely to compromise, work around, patch up or ignore systemic problems.

Globalism requires different social skills than traditional society. When the entire world becomes a combination of workplace and shopping mall, then extroverts benefit from this acceptance-type society because they inherently do not take it at face value, but work around its little glitches and exploit it for their own gain. Since they are granted acceptance, they do not worry about whether their acts will have good or bad results, because they are accepted just the same.

In this way we see how socialization, or the process of having social factors dominate over others, can be destructive and leads to the type of civilization that globalism creates: individuals entirely isolated, lowest common denominator prevailing over more complex ideas, unpopular truths ignored, weak eating the strong, and corruption at every level.

We all want a friendly discussion. However, if we make that the goal, we compromise everything else in order to be friendly. For that reason, we need to assist ourselves in order to understand how intrusion, not feelings and acceptance, forms the basis of a logical interaction between the individual and the organization, a category which includes not just corporations but civilizations as well.
