It’s hard to believe that leftists are as adamant about race as they seem to be. The primary point of doubt is that so few of them practice what they preach.

A typical leftist use of race as an issue seems to be to silence the opposition, prove his own compassion and altruism, and finally, to ignore it as he drives home to his white-with-a-few-token-well-behaved-others urban loft or suburban row.

Race is a potent weapon. If not applied with a strictly non-judgmental view, the notion of race itself threatens the ideal of modern liberalism, which is that society is composed of sovereign individuals and the highest goal is for the society to be facilitative, or enable them to act as they find fulfilling, independent of consequences.

As the consequences of 200 years of leftist policy slowly gut our country, the leftists are sensing that their conquest is near complete. Their ideas are so pervasive that few dare challenge them, and those are quickly shouted down.

However, the real conquest here will belong to nature and natural law, which over the course of centuries methodically sorts of the response to our acts as a species, and just now is able to show us the consequences of the prior generations of liberalism.

We can sense a little bit of this in the continued failure of liberal programs. The war on poverty produced more impoverished people; the war on racial inequality produced more racism on all sides; the great crusade for universal acceptance has result in greater divisions within our society.

As a result, the ideological brainwashing has reached its peak. It is impossible to make any public advocacy of a plan without re-iterating its commitment to equality (the poor, civil rights, race, gender equality and sexual preference agnosticism). Media and social sources alike seem to emphasize the same ideas as absolutely true.

“Even in Hitler’s Germany the infatuation for medals, titles and uniforms never reached the peak it has in the proletariat’s promised land. On the kolkhozy (collective farms), a visitor is apt to meet a Znatnaya Doyarka (Distinguished Cow Milking Woman). One of the latest additions to the new Soviet aristocracy is Honourable Coal Miner E. P. Baryshnikov.” – Time Magazine

We have reached a stage like the late Soviet Union, in which ideology matters more than reality, and we have taken our ideology to ludicrous lengths to ensure that we drown out any mention of the Emperor’s New Clothes being non-existent.

What is most non-existent is a plan for the future beyond enforcing the ideology. Our entire system rests on the idea that if we achieve our ideological goals, through magic a paradise will result. We have experienced “progress.”

The problem is that in order to achieve our liberal ideological goals, we must first deny reality by insisting that not only are people politically equal, but that they are actually physically equal.

The two are connected. Political equality is a dubious concept because it means the vote of an idiot is equal to that of a genius. Because the bell curve that applies to intelligence distribution through all populations tends to place most people in the middle, we figure that voting cancels out the idiots and geniuses and gives us a good representation of what should be done. The problem is that right in the middle of that bell curve is a cut-off point below which people cannot generally understand the issues they’re voting on, and most of the voters are beneath that line.

As a result, we are forced into manic denial of the physical inequality of voters in order to avoid having to deny the political inequality of voters. And yet:

Brain size and smarts are, to some extent, genetic — and now, a team of more than 200 researchers has uncovered specific genes that are linked to both brain volume and IQ.

Though scientists have suggested bigger brains are “smarter,” this study is the strongest case yet for a genetic connection to brain size and to IQ. Of course, brain size is not 100 percent correlated with a person’s intelligence, and other factors, including connections between brain cells and even a person’s experiences, play roles.

“We found fairly unequivocal proof supporting a genetic link to brain function and intelligence. For the first time, we have watertight evidence of how these genes affect the brain,” said lead researcher Paul Thompson, a neurologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Medicine. – Live Science

It’s immensely unpopular to admit any positive trait is hereditary. That makes the assembled group of voters feel bad, because that means if you don’t have it, you never will. It’s not in the cards. (They have no problem with negative traits being heritable, however, because it allows them to imply that those they dislike are broken at the most basic level.)

The result is a mania that has no stop point. The conquest that liberals want isn’t a conquest at all because it has no goal. It is only an eternal ideological war, against tinier and tinier details that imply differences between individuals or (bite your tongue) groups of any kind.

Like most religious fervors this trend did not originate under a revivalist’s tent but it might as well have because it is just as fanatical, and just as invested with confirmation-bias-style reasoning, in which any new data is crammed into the existing outlook, which itself is never reconsidered:

If you claim that you are not a racist person…then you must believe that people are fundamentally born equal. If that’s true…[race] should have no effect on anyone’s success. Right? And therefore, if you really believe that all people are created equal, then when you see that drastic racial inequalities exist in the real world, the only thing that you could possibly conclude is that some external force is holding certain people back. Like…racism. Right? So congratulations! You believe in racism! Unless you don’t actually think that people are born equal. And if you don’t believe that people are born equal, then you’re a racist. – Jezebel

Liberalism is at the peak of its conquest now, but only because the second act has not yet begun. The first act was liberals promising a paradise if their ideology was followed, and the second act will be a long series of systematic failures of those liberal ideological crusades.

Perhaps on some level liberals know this, which explains their fanatical desire to “close the gap” and force us all into mental conformity before the cracks in the system become more visible. But that didn’t work for the Soviets, either.

    Expect to seethe leftists become so desperate that they start claiming that the superior intelligence genes belong to africans etc. In short, expect leftists to start making up science to back up, and to be increasingly bolder and bolder about it

  2. A. Realist says:

    Who likes reality? People who do well in nature.

    Who hates reality? Everyone else.

    • I haven’t always done well in nature. But I accept reality because if there’s anything I’ve done well nature-wise, it’s having the proverbial cojones to accept some initial mental discomfort.

      • A. Realist says:

        Doing well in nature means being able to think about reality, adapt to it, move on. It’s not like one night camping where you get diarrhea, can’t start a fire and end up huddled and freezing back in the car munching on power bars. Life is a marathon, not a one night stand.

        • crow says:

          Doing well in nature may be something like that.
          But doing really well in nature is to remove the thinking process from it altogether, and dealing directly with it.
          That’s how animals and birds do it.
          They say crows, for example, are intelligent.
          But that misses a crow’s greatest ability:
          To simply be whatever it engages with, and to respond to it with an immediacy that thinking never can.

    • ferret says:

      As a realist, do you like reality?

      • crow says:

        That’s a seemingly stupid, but very valid question.
        Nice one, Ferret.
        Although you didn’t ask me, specifically:
        One does not have to ‘like’ reality.
        One must be able to detect it, accept it, ad deal with it.
        Liking it is irrelevant.

      • A. Realist says:

        A realist “likes” nothing and doesn’t really care about whether or not he should “like” anything. A realist cares about what is real and how to use it to optimize survival and the pleasure of living. That’s about all. You could say a realist likes success and nothing else.

        • crow says:

          That’s pretty good :)
          How about this:
          A realist likes everything, except needing to be liked.
          In fact, a realist is like everything, in that he does not separate himself from it.
          He doesn’t need to ‘like’, he ‘is like’.

        • ferret says:

          I thought I prepared a man trap, but you are smart.

          “A realist cares about what is real and how to use it to optimize survival and the pleasure of living.”

          I like this, especially this ‘optimizing’. The only question is: in what scale?

          • crow says:

            ‘Use it’ or perhaps ‘make use of it’?
            Or better yet ‘work with it’.

            Using stuff for our own ends is one of those attitudes that brought us to where it has. Read: ‘Fish Stocks’.
            The realist sees there are a finite number of fish, and fishes well within that margin, so the ‘stock’ is not eliminated.
            While the leftist demands his ‘share’, no matter the outcome.

  3. EvilBuzzard says:

    ACT II: Caesarism. Fascism was a reaction to the original failures of Euro-socialism. Remember the original fascist slogans weren’t “Gas the Jews!!”. They originally promised to make the trains run on time.

    • Esotericist says:

      Yep and there were a lot of good things about fascism, the real problem is that it is very hard to make a centralized economy work at all. The American conservative method is probably better which is to tell government to f-k off and to then let cultural imperialism take over, which means people just squeeze out the people they don’t want living there. Much less controlling if you have good people, if you don’t your culture is just going to be s-t like Justin Bieber and Ke$ha.

      • A. Realist says:

        Fascism wasn’t that much more fascist than the modern liberal democratic state. They just can’t hide it very well. In a fascist state, armed men show up and make you do things. In a “free” (TM) state, you either do certain things or you end up broke, poor, homeless, in jail and powerless.

  4. crow says:

    Speaking of the titles leftists give themselves:
    Ever heard of the “Positive Energy Quilters”?
    I hadn’t, either. But yes, such things exist.

    Have a peek at a hardcore leftwing blog.
    It’s so leftwing they don’t even know it is.
    They all seem to see themselves as normal, nice, paragons of virtue.
    The Hydro Pole Art comments are fun, too.

  5. The invective and ostracising logic behind Jezebel is very much how your typical progressive/feminist operates. Construct a false dichotomy so that if people don’t bend to your terms, you’re effectively damning them like a witch in the middle-ages.

    Equality in something like nature is just mathematically impossible. It saddens me the mental gymnastics people will go through.

    • N/A says:

      Mental gymnastics, that’s a good way to put it. The intellectual left are like good lawyers, with convincing arguments filled with sentimental hog-wash. They convince themselves and others by building a good case based purely on circumstance.

      • crow says:

        Leftists have no experience.
        That is how they can be leftists.

        • A. Realist says:

          They’re like perpetual children and they’re always angry at Daddy.

          • crow says:

            You are indeed A Realist :)

            But this is the value of Amerika:
            We get to divide and sub-divide the leftist-problem down to its subatomic components, and really see what is going on down there in the mire.
            And we find it is far simpler than we had imagined.
            These people are simply undeveloped children who have no ability to see what maturity is, and no interest in acquiring it.
            Like pet kittens, catered-to and cosseted, they simply never grow up. They have never experienced (yet) anything that would require them to.
