Ethnomasochism

Welcome to the Other Side. Most human activity involves denial of reality, which like a vast negative void obstructs our view of life as a good thing. Our denials do not work and so the chasm is always with us, tormenting us with its certainty and our helplessness to do anything but deny it in the short term. Most people never cross the void.

Those who cross the abyss however reach the Other Side, where all that the yawning chasm does stands revealed as not only logical, but aimed toward producing an ultimately positive outcome. Death, defecation, race, class, injustice, murder and hangnails all have a purpose, but it is invisible from the near side of the abyss. Our human fear and individualism (egoism plus the ability to defeat it through symbols and socializing) obstructs us.

A man appears at your elbow, wearing a tan uniform. This is Charon in his day job role as a delivery driver. He waits in spectral silence for you to notice him, and hands you a small printed ticket without disturbing the air. It reads: CROSSING PASS (ABYSS), 1 ADULT OR CHILD. You look up to thank him — being a polite sort — and he is gone, having left behind a scent of oil and fire.

Now that you have been granted a day permit across the abyss, take a peek at what it is like to see the logic behind life itself. It does not resemble the human form at all, which tells you that the human form is only appearance without structure behind it. This means that you are now moving from illusion to something more like realism. Here, all that baffles ordinary humans will be made obvious.

With our minds liberated from the pretense of a human order, we can see humanity for what it is: half-monkeys with brains who want to justify their own actions. Most of them are unable to formulate a purpose of their own, and so they fall back on behaviors that satisfy the self, usually the ones that require license, such as lusts, desires, appetites and self-importance. These things make them feel immortal and as if they are living the best possible life, which is why the average American office is full of bragging about objects purchased, alcohol consumed and sex experienced.

As a consequence of this approach, they are equal parts self-placating and self-deprecating. They are aware on some level that their approach is less than optimal, and this leads to both self-hatred and envy plus resentment of those who have escaped this Human Condition of perpetual mediocrity. Very few can articulate this however and so they act impulsively, justify those acts as having positive intent, and then retreat behind the pretense that they were good all along.

This leads us to Ethnomasochism. A paler and more gifted population finds itself always drawn to the Other, especially the darkest and seemingly least gifted, as an alternative to itself. Its self-hatred makes it long for the greener grass on the other side, and the inability of the Other to deliver the dream makes it loathe the Other. This creates a society which insists upon the Other among it, and specializes in “gift-giving” to that Other so that the Other is dependent on it. That in turn makes both parties hate the other.

The human mind loves a torture toy, which requires that it have a justification for torturing that object. Every bad parent thinks that his misery comes from his children, and every abuser has to invent reason to “punish” his victim. This allows the psychology of the abusive individual to both portray itself as good, by inversion of its victimhood status, and also to continue abusing.

Every person secretly desires dehumanized objects to revenge themselves upon: infinite Indians without souls to shoot like in cowboy movies, Nazis who are pure evil to beat on like in Hollywood fantasies, alien invaders, zombies or deranged cultists to blow up en masse like on TV shows. We all want a victim that is also to blame so we can feel good about our lust for blood. Having the Other allows for this because that Other can then be used as a political tool for advancement of the individual and destruction of those above it.

European-descended people keep diversity around so that they can be victims and yet also have someone to be better than, which explains the pathological hatred of most white people for Africans, especially the kind that disguises itself behind a fanatical anti-racism.

He’s a fanatic. And the fanatic is always concealing a secret doubt. – George Smiley on Karla, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011)

Even your most SJW hipster will at times make fun of black culture as one might ridicule the notions of a child, both obsessed by its Otherness and delighted to savagely mock it. Their anti-racism serves as a shield, but these people are often the most virulent racists imaginable in their inner thoughts, enjoying the ability to manipulate black people as public “friends” while still treating them like disabled, incapable people. This is the psychology of the ethnomasochist.

For them, the presence of the Other affirms their own importance and position above it. Naturally this appeals only to those who doubt their own worth, status and power. They have found another way of having power: keep around someone who will always be lower than them, as a reminder of their own superiority, while using their ostentatious “kindness” to that group as proof of their superiority to those who need no such crutch. Their tolerance masks a sneering, defensive pretense of higher status.

This is the reason that every liberal power seizure, starting with the French Revolution, has insisted on what was once called “internationalism” but is now disguised as multiculturalism and diversity. They demand equality of all the workers of the world, regardless of origin, so they may always have the Other among them. And secretly, in jokes and laughter at behavior of that Other, they affirm their own nasty sense of self-worth relative to the Other.

White people cannot get rid of diversity despite its ongoing 200 years of failure because their ideology requires they maintain it, and the root of their ideology is in those who feel naturally inferior (and are usually right) and are tormented by that fact. Like third world refugees, they refuse to do the obvious — work on raising their own status, starting with self-discipline and higher proficiency at something — and instead target those who have already risen. This is the tendency of entropy in humanity to drag down its best for the mental comfort of the Rest.

The same is true of white liberal loathing for rednecks and “white trash,” which also gives them someone to feel superior to, and in their minds hides their own similar behaviors from criticism. But it is all for naught, as with most illusion, because their fantasies when acted out through politics produce the third-world conditions that their mentality deserves, which in turn makes the superior stand out further. And so the quest for revenge goes on, until the society pulls itself apart and only a low IQ, mixed-race, disorganized and criminal third-world ruin remains.

    This is an unedited portion of a comment for a previous article a few days ago that I decided not to submit for whatever reason. Perhaps the first sentence foreshadows this article a little bit:

    Wanton multiculturalism has culminated in this most surreal sadomasochistic racial dichotomy grinding us into undiversified dust. It should go without saying that those with heads screwed on tight and keen on preservation of ethnic purity are the ultimate champions of diversity. We truly are the “good guys” since we’re the only ones with ample passion to suggest that all races are entitled to self reliance and cultivation. Adherence to natural law is the key to said goodness, and if one or more autonomous races end up unable to care for themselves, we end up with twice the tragedy when knee-jerk altruism blows up into globalism and all races are ultimately destroyed.

    Nice Brett! The allegory is a good one.

    I do wonder if the self hating is even conscious. I’m unsure it is a known self hating. Behavior that leads to a destructive end can at times take years of rationalizing a good from it. I would imagine many people are on various parts of the spectrum. Culture condones most of the behavior. Markets, politics, peers and media all seem to partake and it becomes even more difficult to understand the good or bad mathematics of a choice. “If everyone is doing it..”

    Further, when the majority of people accept poor choices it can cast a trance over the whole, making it harder to see other pathways.

    The pre-abyss stage is the unease, depression or anxiety that comes with calculating that something may be wrong, and the choices must be dealt with, but that doesn’t mean the person knowingly hates himself or understands what he is doing. There is a long dance of rationalization.

    It’s a great point though. Perhaps the self hating is the knowing something is an error, even if unconscious of it or not, the compulsions, anxieties, depressions and other maladies that accompany bullheaded rationalization.

    The abyss can be the best medicine, and if they can survive the chasm, what did they grab onto? I tend to think there may be several islands of thought to grab onto to avoid entirely crossing.

    This is an amazingly good analysis, Brett. You’ve cut through the surface and exposed the deeper psychological currents churning through the minds of the mad (ie. most people). If Nietzsche was still around, this is the type of diagnosis he would be making.
