In a previous post, our two options for future civilization were revealed:
Naturally, government and commercial interests hate the latter example. It doesn’t need them like an addict needs heroin, a battered wife in a codependent relationship needs her husband, or Bugs Bunny needs Elmer Fudd.
Cops need robbers to chase, government needs problems to legislate, and commerce needs fears to sell products. An organic society rewards each of these with less in the way of power and future options. In fact, an organic society forces government and commerce to serve the people, not the other way around.
This problem became obvious shortly after the French Revolution in 1789. The solution they saw then is the same as the one seen now: smash, destroy and deconstruct all culture and values and replace them with “social values” of the “we must all get along” variety you remember from kindergarten and pre-school.
In other words, instead of trying to find answers to our problems and a direction for our society, we are forced into increasingly restrictive structures to force us to get along with each other. The totalitarian future will not come under a swastika or hammer and sickle, but a picture of Gandhi and John Lennon.
Globalism arose from this movement. A form of liberalism taken to its logical conclusion, globalism aims to destroy all national cultures and replace them with commerce and the nanny/police state. Through consumerism, and a mass media that teaches us anything but globalism is racist and evil, this new empire will compel us to enforce it through our own self-interest.
In a social values system, you get ahead by convincing people that you are nice and inoffensive. This means approving of everyone, always demanding compromise, always getting along and never having any conflicting opinions. The result is utterly conformity, compliant and easily manipulated people.
However, a backlash has begun:
Prime Minister David Cameron, who said this year that multiculturalism has failed in Britain, is calling on immigrants to learn English fluently, “make a contribution” to the economy and society and avoid being a “burden on the welfare system and the taxpayer.”
Labor Party leader Ed Miliband recently conceded that his party “got some things wrong” on immigration during its 13 years in power. He acknowledged public concern that a rapid influx of Eastern Europeans in the past decade has driven down living standards in Britain.
“This clearly had effects on people right up and down the country, and we’ve clearly got to learn those lessons for the future,” Mr. Miliband told the BBC. – The Washington Times
Our leaders have told us since 1945 that blending ourselves into a uniform shade of tan and doing away with culture, religion and strong moral beliefs is the right way to “get along.” The problem is that getting along sacrifices getting anything done, and destabilizes societies like the UK.
What is clear is that there are presently many more people in Westminster demanding a referendum on EU membership than in the City complaining about capitalism. I have just spoken at a rally of the People’s Pledge, at which more than 2,000 people were present. What’s more, we know that those 2,000 are representative of the country as a whole. They are a fraction of the 100,000 whose signatures triggered Monday’s proposal for an In/Out referendum – a proposal which, as a poll in today’s Daily Express reveals, more than two thirds of voters want their MP to back. A further 80,000 have pledged to vote only for pro-referendum parliamentary candidates.
It will be interesting to compare the amount of coverage generated by the two protests. Will the People’s Pledge get ten times as much attention as the anti-capitalist sit-in, on the basis of the number of people at Westminster? – The Telegraph
The idea behind the EU is the same as the idea behind the “new” United States for which a vast Civil War was fought in 1861-1865: we will unify the entire nation on a uniform standard, create a managerial morality so we all get along, and then use those people as fodder for employment, consumerism and government. Europeans are starting to realize what a dark and soulless path this is.
The proposal, put forward by Herman Van Rompuy, the European Council president, would be the clearest sign yet of a new “United States of Europe” — with Britain left on the sidelines.
The plan comes as European governments desperately trying to save the euro from collapse last night faced a new bombshell, with sources at the International Monetary Fund saying it would not pay for a second Greek bail-out.
It was also disclosed last night that British businesses are turning their back on Brussels regulations to give temporary workers full employment rights, with supermarket chain Tesco leading the charge. – The Telegraph
Magically, the agenda never changes because liberalism is globalism. Liberals have one solution: enforce more equality. Unfortunately, that causes society to deviate from reality by replacing actual goals with a political agenda. The result is further social schism.
Ms. Fisher’s lawyers filed a petition seeking a Supreme Court review last month, and legal experts say the justices will probably agree to hear it, setting the stage for a decision by June. Such a decision, given changes in the membership of the court since 2003, is likely to cut back on if not eliminate the use of race in admissions decisions at public colleges and universities.
Diversity is the last man standing, the sole remaining legal justification for racial preferences in deciding who can study at public universities. Should the Supreme Court disavow it, the student body at the University of Texas and many other public colleges and universities would almost instantly become whiter and more Asian, and less black and Hispanic
A judicial retreat from diversity would be deeply symbolic, too. The term — a gauzy, unobjectionable way to talk about the combustible topic of race — has had a remarkable run. If the diversity rationale falls apart in university admissions, it could start to test the societal commitment to it in other arenas, notably private hiring and promotion. – The New York Times
Civilization is a zero-sum game. If you do not stand up for your own interests, others will replace you. While human life as a whole is not a zero-sum game — other civilizations exist, one for each culture — the self-destruction of European-Americans shows us that the well-meaning “diversity” programs we so enthusiastically supported since 1945 have become a war on the majority. Slowly, the majority is nibbling at the edges of this vast political establishment.
Upon leaving the conference I hailed the closest taxi and as the driver carried me safely home, I reflected on what was a very long day.
What struck me the most about the day was the tone of the conference and the people there. I admit that my preconceived expectations were probably tethered to an imagination gone wild. It’s not that I was expecting to see people burning crosses or singing Nazi anthems per se, but I anticipated a little more anger, a little more foaming-at-the-mouth hatred of non-whites.
Instead, the attendees were friendly, even a little shy. They seemed happy to be able to speak so freely on topics considered by most of society to be taboo and ideas so extreme they at times resembled science fiction. It felt a little like a failed comic book convention, sparsely populated by introverted patrons shuffling in quietly and clutching an obscure book they want autographed or hoping to see a celebrity known only within their narrow cultural circle. – Media Matters
While it is still taboo to mention that diversity is destructive (regardless of the ethnic groups involved), it has become more popular to speak in private about it. Just to express doubts. Much as in the final days of the Soviet Union, when people finally felt confident enough to speak their discontent, Americans of all races, creeds and backgrounds are speaking up about diversity: it will destroy our culture, and make us a mechanical civilization overseen by an all-powerful moral nanny/police state.
We face a powerful and determined source of corruption in globalism. By disguising itself as government by the people, it makes itself the target of much criticism, none of it directed at the legitimacy of its rule. This makes globalism safe from attacks from within.
Attacks from without are difficult as well. Citizens of globalist states are propagandized to fear anything smacking of communism or extremism, which means the globalism media is incentivized to sell newspapers by finding fascists under every rug.
Awareness within the population is also difficult, since globalism operates more like a social fashion or trend than a culture. It motivates people to push others down for failure to adhere to the dogma; those who display the best obedience are those who are blameless, and thus promoted and socially popular.
It is a perfect reign of control. It pits us against each other, and makes us fear anything but it. Like a domineering parent, it sabotages our self-esteem and then makes us addicted to its comfortingly secure but unsettling domain:
There is an old true story told about financier Jay Gould. When asked what he would do if there were ever a threat of a genuine revolution in America he answered, “I can hire one-half of the working class to kill the other half.” This is not a facetious statement. He was deadly serious because this tactic always works. It has been refined since then to encourage letting off steam rather than letting off gunpowder, yet it is generally the same. – Taki’s Magazine
Despite this near-total control, the backlash has begun the best way possible: by whispered conversations, by general grumbling, by a lack of faith in a system that has failed to produce the Utopian results it promised, but has instead brought us a society laden with crime, corruption, advertising, ugliness and fear.
So far, using the most powerful media establishment in history, the globalist elite have managed to keep this criticism to a minimum. They are counting on the selfishness, lack of attention span and general apathy of the citizens around them. But as the days pass and the misery intensifies, even oblivion loses ground.
