Tribalism Accelerates

Friday, June 17th, 2016

tribalism_accelerates

Let us review what we have learned in sotto voce from the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre:

  1. The cops cannot help. Being a police officer was a calling, when we were a unified nation and had something to work together toward. Now it is just a job, chosen because it comes with good bennies, the ability to retire at 45 and “double-dip” by getting hired in another security-related field, and political respect. The careerists won out. And so, the cops defer to authority in order to make any action. They do not take unnecessary risks. Their job is to do the job as defined, not the job as it should be. They waited for three hours during a mass shooting before going in, allowing the shooter to tag over a hundred people, and to have possibly killed more had he locked exits and kept shooting instead of goofing off on social media.
  2. The government cannot help. Across the Western world, governments turned on rainbow lights at their capital buildings. Every face glowed bright in the promise of the symbol, which allowed us all to feel morally superior for having supported the Correct side! And then, no one did anything else. Stop Islamic radicals? Make police more effective? Build a wall around gay communities? Step up profiling of terrorists? None of these have happened. Government was there to give the symbol that made happy feelings in the voters, and then its job was done, so back to taxing and spending.
  3. There is no unity. Despite the vigils and people painting the names of the victims on their ’91 El Dorados, there was no sense of unity. People are not stepping up to say “we are in it together and we fight together.” Of course, the media implies this, but the groundswell of popular support — beyond the group of committed neurotics who believe what they see on the television — has not occurred. In fact, the general reply seems to be, “Not my tribe, so not my problem.” Blacks, white straights, Hispanics, and Asians are all just biding their time, knowing themselves to be competing with one another and so, de facto, at war.

As reported here a short while ago, the internal paradoxes of diversity have collided and abolished it except as a symbol. This means that practical people everywhere are reverting to tribal identities, which exist as one or more of the following: race, ethnicity, religion, caste, class and realist alignment (Leftists/Communists versus everyone else).

The homosexual tribe stands alone because every tribe stands alone. This means they can expect no unity with the rest of their globalized multicultural nation-state entity, and that they feel no guilt in acting in pure self-interest. Just as women are voting for Hillary Clinton for the sole reason that she also is a woman, homosexual tribalists will now act only for what benefits their tribe above all others. “Is it good for the homosexuals?” is the only question on the agenda. And if other tribes suffer, that is their problem.

Wise observers predicted that this would be the result of diversity. Self-interest is one of those behaviors which every creature must indulge in, or end up dead, and so self-interest may be concealed or transferred somewhat, but it is never removed. When the silly white Leftists announced diversity, the rest of the world said: “The morons have invited us onto the gravy train. Let us go there, drain them dry, and conquer them, these people who are too stupid to live.”

When you look at non-native ethnic groups in the USA — meaning those outside of the founding Western European population — you see two types. There are those who have bought into the symbolic reality offered by Leftism, and those who have recognized it as false. The latter group keep their language, customs and allegiances, even spying for their nation of origin. They know they are biding their time until the takeover can occur, and that their tribe will need them.

Some have noticed this seemingly suicidal side to Leftism, but the Leftist agenda is to avoid tribalism so that the individual can profit enough to escape with the loot. Leftists negate their tribe because their only tribe is the self. It is not surprising that so many of them show the results of generations-ago slight admixture — an Asiatic lift there, a middle Eastern nose there, some Amerind or Lapp around the eyes — because they have never felt allegiance to the group, or anything beyond their own immediate comfort. They are dead souls.

As the results of the plans of these dead souls unfold, it becomes clear that Western Civilization and Western Government — now recognized as egalitarian, and therefore a gradual path to Communism — will separate. The national groups are already breaking into tribes, and they will enforce street justice by always defending their own and fighting for territory above all else. As usually happens, the Leftists who made it at the career of being Leftist will be boarding private jets for Switzerland, and the rest of us will fight it out in the streets, wondering how it got so bad so fast.

SJWs Cannot Afford Their Own Beliefs and Behavior

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

sjws_cannot_afford_their_own_beliefs_and_behavior

I think that the recent protests at The University of Missouri were quite informative. We have learned that their journalism faculty will throw journalists out of the protests if they start filming what the morons are up to. We have learned that their fellow students consider them positively atrocious as human beings and a threat to what honest people are attempting to accomplish in four years of college. Finally, we have learned exactly what we can do to stop SJW Entryism. We simple cease and desist with our support of these institutions.
This has happened with The University of Missouri. Now some other enjoyable things are happening as well.

The fallout from the fake Mizzou protests continues to destablize the University of Missouri. Today the interim chancellor of the university emailed students that the university will enroll 1500 less students than projected and faces a budget shortfall of $32 million this year. While the 1500 fewer students aren’t broken out by year, the vast majority of them will come from the entering freshman class.

The University of Missouri demonstrated its commitment to the Manna of Dollar Sign from legislative heaven. You see about 100 of the legislators who vote on funding for Mizzou have demanded the firing of Journalism Professor Melissa Click. The University has opted to fire her from a cannon as rapidly as they can light the fuse. This Professor Click tells us, cannot stand.

“In their decision to terminate my employment, the curators bowed to conservative voices that seek to tarnish my stellar 12-year record at MU,” Click wrote. “Instead of disciplining me for conduct that does not ‘meet expectations for a university faculty member,’ the curators are punishing me for standing with students who have drawn attention to the issue of overt racism at the University of Missouri.”

Personally, I agree with Dr. Click. Melissa Click represents the true mindset and beliefs of professional academia. If you disagree with them, you are a pseudo-sapient, troglodytic moron. You could even harbor nefarious secret intentions to vote for Donald Trump! Melissa Click is the face of the Post-modern Amerikan pseudo-erudite bullsh!t industry. She is who should represent what our universities have truly become. Let’s have some truth in advertising here.
So put Melissa Click in charge of The University of Missouri. Let her design the entire curriculum. Then, let’s see who in their right mind would actually apply for admission to this institution. If the 20% reduction in admissions for this Fall are any indication, showing the public the real face of Leftism makes them recoil in condign disgust.
But wouldn’t this reward this SJW Gropenfuhrer for being her precious snowflake self? No. It would be revealing her subterfuge. The last thing an SJW Entryist ever wants is to have to run the organizations they feed off of as parasites. It would be the equivalent of making Anita Sarkeesian actually have to crank 50K lines of programming to hit a developmental deadline at a coding shop.
But wouldn’t this destroy Mizzou as a useful institution? Only partially. It would destroy it as a viable institution, but just how useful is Mizzou if they hired Melissa Click to begin with? Plus, there needs to be a clear and undeniable example. We need to make an SJW show the world exactly how useless they are on any practical level.
Let Mizzou be consigned to irrelevance. Let it burn. They hire the likes of Melissa Click. The foundation is already hopelessly rotten. Let what happens to Mizzou be a lesson. I think we need more than just a mere $32M reasons to get rid of our SJW infestation in Amerika.

America is the new Carthage and it must be destroyed

the_few_sane_ones_remaining_are_considered_insane

Friends, Romans and Countrymen lend me your ears.*

We are faced by a city-state so evil, so inimical to our way of life so opposed to our very being that there can only be one alternative. We must burn it. The first brave man over the walls will receive the coveted Corona Muralis. We must level its dwellings, put torch to its crops, tear up its roads and sow its fields in salt so that they never produce sustenance again. Except that we can’t. Cato The Elder’s solution won’t work for us. It’s tough to burn down a metaphor

Carthago is just about every city in the United States of Amerika. When the Carthaginians sought the favor of their evil gods they burned their children. By sacrificing babies to the Baals they believed they could put off the anger of a hateful cosmos one more day. When we irrationally claim everyone and everything is equal, we end up sacrificing our children to that fundamental logical contradiction. When we, the smart ones, are ruled by the Liberal ones are too butt-stupid to recognize A=A≠B, we should not recoil in shock when only one student in five in Detroit, MI graduates high school in a timely fashion.

Carthago lives on in every corrupt, amoral and incompetent political factotum who claims to rule on behalf of the people. The Carthaginians are the detestable cowards in the Alabama State Legislature that knuckled under to the Teachers’ Unions and eliminated a challenging graduation exam. Now Alabama high schools look better on paper than those in Detroit, MI.**

The Carthaginians rule in Flint, MI. We advise you not to drink the water if you prefer that your blood stream not include legionella bacterium. Flint, MI proves that there are even easier ways to propitiate The Evil One than just tossing babies on the bonfire.

The city, in an attempt to save money, planned to stop buying water from Detroit and sign up with a regional water system; in the interim, it was getting its municipal water from the Flint River, which is as much a garbage dump as it is a body of water. Residents complained that the water smells of chemicals, that it isn’t the right color, etc. Children’s lead levels are dangerously high, and an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease may also be linked to city water. The city knew about this, and did approximately nothing in response until the problem was well advanced.

The “adults” in Flint, MI are heavily represented amongst the ranks of Hamilcar Barca’s Carthaginian marauders as well. They’ve voted to drink the same municipal hemlock for the past 84 years. And what did the MI state government do? Jack. And our EPA – the wielders of Gawdallmiddy !SCIENCE!, what did they do? They made like Barack Obama and sought a legal opinion.

In Amerika, you can’t just barge in there and prevent innocent children from being turned into lead poisoned retards until you’ve crossed all the I’s and properly dotted the t’s. There’s a bureaucratic procedure to all these things. The government SJW is always here to save you until there is an actual dragon to fight. This is because they care only about getting the power. Using it to do their jobs and assist the people dipped in viscous, bloody immiseration is a laughable afterthought to them all.

So what is to be done and to who do I sadistically do it? The anger over the world I see before me on today’s Drudge Report blinds me. As the red haze clears and my vision returns I realize the sordid, disarming truth. Hannibal no longer camps outside the gates. His armored personnel carriers might as well be doing donuts on the White House Lawn. We are a lost and fallen people until we cease and desist from supporting and forgiving our destroyers. Sans the sanction of the victim, the Baal worshipers are exposed as malignant.

You cannot look upon the Modern American City and still believe in equality. If all people are equal to the current Mayor of Flint, MI, I’d probably better stay away from the mirror. If all CEOs are equal to the ones running General Motors, say hello to Mr. EBT Card. If we all just shut up and accept equality, we all become the Carthaginians. Somewhere a smug and contemptible Baal stands laughing while wreathed in flames. Somewhere in the wilds that lone last fighter for freedom says the words that terrify us all: “Delenda est Carthago!”.


*-$50 interest free would be nice also…

**-How ironic. I’ll bet half of the people included in the New and Improved Graduation Rates™ can’t even read what’s written on the nicer-looking paper.

Personal narratives of the South African collapse

Monday, March 14th, 2016

Diversity cannot work. It replaces a single culture, no matter how nascent, with a compromise culture in which no standards can exist except on a permissive level. That in turn encourages resentment and parasitism and a host of other things entirely unrelated to getting necessary things done.

South Africa went down the path of collapse in the 1980s. Its government, tired of international pressure and apparently too lazy to hide its Social Darwinism behind libertarian pretense, opted for a political system that enfranchised one numerous ethnic group over the ruling caste of Europeans. That in itself leads to disaster, but this newly-enfranchised group is also not biologically ready for the complexities of civilization beyond the tribal/village level which has been their way of life for thousands of years.

As a result, the new conquerors have opted for an illogical program of extracting as much wealth as they can from the ruling caste as possible, forgetting that in doing so, they will dry up that well and be left with a real wasteland. They do not care. Their goal, like that of the elites in the West, is to be In Power. Whether that is over a sprawling wasteland of villages or a modern society, matters not to them… they will have all the conveniences they want for their personal lives, either way. The king always lives well.

A South African writer has contributed the following story of the experiences of a friend of his. He wishes to remain anonymous, of course, because internet retaliation is worse in countries without rule of law. But here is what happened and how it reflects on the “New South Africa”:

A South African commercial farmer (traditionally known as a “Boer”) owns four relatively large farms but also manages three other farms for the South African Government.

The managed farms are the subject of this story. These “other” farms are located in a State-owned tribal trust area. There are several of these trusts across the country, each of which is “allocated” to a specific tribe and in this case, the “Venda” tribe. According to the farmer the Government “took” the same land in the ‘70s from white farmers in order to consolidate an area that, having been inhabited by the Venda tribe and acknowledged as their “homeland,” serve as a form of demi-state for the Venda.

These farms were taken over by the Venda people in the form of the tribal Chief or King who would have allocated these areas/farms to specific members of his tribe, to cultivate as it were. However, despite enormous resources at the disposal of the Chief in all disciplines, all of these farms came to a standstill. The Boer farmer was tasked by the current black government with getting these farms “going” again.

The farmer installed water pumps and provided farming tools to the Venda on the managed farm. To his amazement the pumps and tools he provided were removed within a week and re-sold for money. He promptly installed a new set of pumps as they were vital to the running of the forage. As he installed these pumps, a caravan of local people drove a half-mile behind him in order to remove the same. Needless to say he did not contemplate a third installation.

At the same time, on his own farms, he had a very good relationship with his own black workforce. But three months ago something changed for the worse. His fruit trees were routinely stripped with some trees literally chopped down. When he confronted his own workers on this behavior they told him straight to his face that the farm does not belong to him anymore and that he must share it. When he shows them which trees they can use for fire wood, they ignore him and cut protected species down.

This type of intimidation has gotten worse over these three months to the extent that he closed his small businesses in town. Currently he is assessing the possibilities to also sell the farms, which is a difficult thing for a real farmer to do. His wife has been attacked at home and dragged into the bushes, which was stopped after he had arrived on the scene. On his own he is not afraid to engage these criminals, but he is afraid for his wife.

Now the farmer faces a quandary that many higher-income South Africans face: how to escape. His farming turnover exceeds $4m and the proceeds from the sale will allow him to find a “safer” place to stay, if he can find a way out of the larcenous, corrupt, third-world style society South Africa has become.

This story will be familiar to Americans from the Southern half of that country, because the large number of third world immigrants in that area has changed almost every election into a contest where the minority candidate always wins. It is the same everywhere: groups vote in self-interest, except the guilt-ridden and now degenerate ruling caste, who promptly obliterate themselves in a disgusting miasma of weeping, self-congratulatory pretense, and perversity.

The Potemkin economy

Thursday, December 31st, 2015
asbestos_fake_snow

You are living in an illusion. It was crafted by your fellow citizens for their benefit at the expense of yours. You can safely ignore it, except that then all you do will be wasted, and you will continue living in Hell.

Yes: I said Hell. You are living in a thinly-disguised, well-compensated hell. It is crafted so that only the sane can detect it, and since the sane have always been a minority, that means that it is never noticed. The point is simple: to eradicate the sane using the mechanism of Darwinism. Reward the insane, and this occurs, regular like clockwork.

This is why our society is based around democracy, equality and tolerance. Most of our people want to hide the fact of our decline, and profit from the wealth of the past, while driving away anyone who might notice what a farce it all is. To hide our decline, they have created false versions of everything, and a Potemkin economy to conceal its lack of value.

A Potemkin economy — named after the quaint and cute “Potemkin villages” used to convince people that Russian proles lived well instead of the third-world scatty poverty that was normal — is one in which every price tag is fake but everyone supports these fake prices to avoid the personal economic consequences of letting the cat out of the bag and pointing out that everything is near-worthless.

Take a look at these twelve ways your economy is fake and how that indicates that your society is cratering.

1. It’s all the same.

I was in a bookstore the other day, surrounded by grazing sheep looking for Christmas gifts. I started opening up biographies, novels, and science books, and found one comment denominator: they’re all the same. The writing could have been produced by a machine; the approach is similar too. Each one has a “secret” which it promises to reveal, but spends most of its time hiding the obvious so the secret seems important. All of the writing uses lots of vivid language to reveal simple things, and simplifies complex things to the point of offering no information. All of the characters are the same gray personality-less equal person who spends all of his/her time in introspection as a means of glorifying the self at the expense of the world. Every book ran at least a hundred pages longer than content provided, which means that after the first five chapters, it’s the same song and dance to distract from its emptiness before turning up the volume for a conclusion. Just like blogs, which standardized writing into an NPR-inspired format of heavily emotional, breathy and adjective-heavy quirkiness which ends up being the opposite of distinctive, writing now is as regimented as end of year reports from corporations or threat assessments in the military. This creates writing that is both random and repetitive. At first, it seems interesting, until you realize that it’s just technique and the content is very, very thin. What’s the value in this? People take a few generations to catch up with reality, so they’re still buying novels that “look interesting” (and reading four chapters before leaving them on the bus), giving gift books of “fascinating” science that turns out to be the obvious plus broad conclusions which will be disproven thoroughly in five years, and surrounding themselves with genre-books (from genres invented in the 1980s) to display an identity and life-purpose to others that is just as fake as the Potemkin economy itself.

2. It’s controlled just like Pravda.

Back in the Soviet Union, the official newspaper Pravda could be counted on to spin partial truths into statements that seemed to support the narrative that Communism was taking over the world. You read Pravda to find out what wasn’t true and what the government wanted you to believe so you knew the right answers to tell other people so they wouldn’t inform on you and send you to the gulag. The Soviet Union operated by a negative standard, while the modern West operates on a positive standard. You listen to controlled media so you have the right opinions and get promoted by people who like those opinions, otherwise you remain at “merely equal,” which because it is not subsidized by a Communist/Socialist state, means boring entry level jobs until you’re 65 and then a heart attack from frustration a decade later. Our media here are staffed by people who made it through liberal arts courses in university, in which success came from finding new ways to parrot the same old ideas based in egalitarianism and its associated “theory,” and they keep doing that in media. They then become popular because there is a large enough audience that wants to feel smart for having absorbed liberal theory at public schools and private universities alike, and they recognize only that which parrots this chatter back to them. For this reason, our “diverse” media represents a single opinion in many forms, and successfully spams your brain as it would take decades to entangle all of the deceptions. Its favorite trick, like that of Pravda, is to take a partial truth and spin it into a broad conclusion. A famous comedian said, “Reality has a liberal bias,” but what he means is that a controlled media and science publishing establishment can find facts to support the liberal narrative and present those as the whole truth when they are far from it.

3. Its value has fallen 40% during the 0bama years.

Barack 0bama is not a Muslim, the antichrist or a Communist. What he is, if analyzed correctly, is a standard 1968 liberal: the name of the game is wealth transfer from the useful people to the proles so that liberals remain in power forever. As the old joke goes, the difference between a Socialist, Communist and moderate liberal is the spelling. These ideologies differ only by degree, which is a function of time because once liberalism takes control it inevitably and necessarily continues a drift leftward until total anarchy or true Communism is achieved, either of which reduces a population to a third-world vassal state under the thumb of cynical tyrants. The consequence of wealth transfer are striking: it places economic decisions in the hands of those least competent to make those decisions well. As a result, your economy is suddenly geared around end-stage consumer products, not stuff like what the successful people buy, which tends to generate more income: land, homes, businesses, stocks, etc. Each dollar we take from the upper half of the middle class and above goes into lottery tickets, cell phones, cheap liquor and entertainment, and that money goes nowhere else. The result is that your money purchases less, and the quality has declined. American construction is at an all-time mediocre low, our food has never been more adulterated, and even our entertainment products are going full dunce. None of this crap is actually worth much but that’s the point; in order to keep you from seeing that your currency is now worthless, you must see a steady stream of stuff in formats you recognize so you think everything is normal. The media will not report on this. Just as we look back to 1980s dollars fondly, now 2006 money seems like it would be a really nice thing to have now. Forget it; your dollars are based on your drunken debt in order to fund liberal social programs like welfare, subsidies, benefits, food stamps and diversity programs. All of these are merely disguised wealth transfer.

4. Your technology is not advancing.

Tell us again about the great advances in technology. Your computing is based on a 1990s networking format using 1970s operating systems. Our self-driving cars are built around the same ideas that enabled cruise missiles in the early 1980s. Those handy digital assistants are basically Eliza programs maintained by hordes of workers pre-programming them with answers. None of this represents an actual leap in technology; if anything, it is a declaration that none are coming, so we have to reshuffle the deck to give ourselves new products. What actually does an iPad do? How does it add income? Similarly, what about Facebook and Amazon — how are they different from internet forums and Wal-mart? These non-innovations are designed to hide the lack of invention. Even Google is hovering near the abyss, since after a nice ten-year run of good advertising revenues, it is now finding that the internet is covered in ads that people ignore. Apple had a few big sellers, but those are now gone. What next? The phones get bigger screens and the iPads get better wi-fi. Fantastic.

5. The value of your society is based on its reputation, which is fading.

Once upon a time, people bought American products because they were the best. Then they bought American media, because it was seen as the best. Finally, they followed what Americans were doing, because Americans seemed cutting edge. Guess what — those trivial advances have now been equaled. The rest of the world has its own Hollywoods, search engines, social media and trends. The value of the USA and Europe is based on an old standard which is now obsolete. Add to that the obvious failings of American social policy, which has gone full Socialist and thus sabotaged its value to match the European subsidy states, and the plummeting value of the American brand as a wimpy president and crazy voters pursue illusory foreign policy, and you see why America and Europe are no longer the world’s leaders. Sure, the West — America, the antipodeans and Europe — can support each other and keep the farce going, but that only has so long on it. The Baby Boomers just want to enjoy another decade of retirement before the cancers from industrial pollution kill them off, and after that, who cares.

6. Your leaders are bad because your people are bad.

Most people are cool with the idea that they choose their leaders. They are less accepting of the complementary proposition, which is that they are responsible for who they choose. The last two generations have increasingly picked candidates with illogical platforms, no experience and little competence merely because those leaders have promised free things. Free college and free medical care are two of the more compelling policies for voters in this group. The problem, in addition to the fact that these are wealth transfer (see above), is that the money to pay for these things comes from a dwindling group. Most people now work relatively entry-level jobs and to them, a few thousand gone in taxes in exchange for tens of thousands of freebies sounds like a good idea. But then who pays? And what is sacrificed to pay for it? Our rotting infrastructure tells the story: we stopped building quality roads, bridges, subways, electrical lines and public buildings, and instead, have shifted that money into payments to people at the bottom of the social hierarchy. When we kept the money at the top, it went to things we can all enjoy and benefit from; now that we distribute the money at the bottom, it vanishes into a black hole of seedy businesses and entertainment products, and the things we share are neglected.

7. Your people are bad because your economy sustains idiots.

Every society dies by thriving. This enables it to support people who could not exist without it, generally because they are foolish — or in other words, have unrealistic judgment ability — and require jobs, stores and education to guide them because otherwise their witless minds would ramble on like a gossip column. Strong people want to exile the useless idiots; weak people want to “make peace” with the idiots by giving them benefits, subsidies and jobs. The result is that voting, which was always a bad situation because every human group approximates a mean not a peak, becomes worse as you have many millions of helpless people dependent on government and the liberalism that sustains it. These parasites bleed the society dry. They also lower social standards wherever they go because any standard higher than mediocre is personally offensive to them. This means that soon you have an angry mob of fools who become “useful idiots” for any totalitarian, left-leaning or otherwise control-oriented power.

8. Tolerance is our sacred value in order to prevent “noticing.”

“Noticing” is what happens when someone looks at society with clear, realistic eyes. They see a population that is miserable, with the worst being the most intelligent and productive. They see cities which are covered in advertising, awkward to use and designed around avoiding the rioting lower classes. They see a total lack of unity in anything, including national identity. They observe the incompetence of our leaders, products and public institutions. They intuit that this society is a form of hell, and that unless it deviates course radically, it is heading toward becoming Brazil — a vast third-world horde enslaved by a few cynical wealthy people and their private armies. They also realize that “tolerance” means accepting the mediocre as fact and as a result, our voters have comfortably opted for oblivion and policy after policy that is delusional and self-destructive. They notice the man behind the curtain and that the Potemkin village hides a far uglier reality. They also see how those who feel they have succeeded in this society fight kicking and screaming against noticing because those people are addicted on a brain chemical level to the artificial sense of self-esteem provided by “success.” This is why of all of our taboos, “tolerance” is the strongest. Tolerance means the lower is raised to be equal to the higher, so no one can say anything definitively because someone somewhere disagrees. This keeps decisions mired in obscurity — doubtless at the same time organizations publish lengthy lists of “facts” in the name of “transparency” — so that nothing will ever change our course, even if the smartest among us recognize that it is time-wasting, soul-wasting, depression-inducing suicide.

9. The world operates on Darwinian principles plus pretense.

Almost no one will face this: your tribal identity is formed by any set of traits you share with others. This includes (in overlapping conditions frequently) race, religion, ethnic group, class or caste, sexual preference and intelligence. Every other group looks at your group; if you are above them in any way, their goal is to tear you down and subjugate you, taking your women and impregnating them. This is one half of Darwinism. The first part is that the best rise above the rest, and the second part is that if the best degenerate, or lose their ability or will to rise above, the rest assimilates them. This is why over time eagles become sparrows and grey squirrels drive out red squirrels. We do not like to think about being subject to Darwinism, as humans, because that thought belongs to a category alongside death, defecation and our insignificance in the universe of thoughts that not only disturb us personally but create threatening instability in social groups when mentioned. So we file them away, along with the instructions for our 1040 forms and grandma’s recipe for hemorrhoid cream, hoping that they just Go Away like the bad thoughts which plague us late at night when we cannot sleep.

10. The agenda never changes: other groups hate you.

As a corollary to point #9, the grim truth is that no matter how much pleasant talk about altruism and equality goes on, other groups still hate you and want to conquer you, much like other people want to advance themselves above you whether rightfully so (by competence) or not. Life is war, even in the air-conditioned tea-sipping suburbs. Other groups want to conquer you because until they have control, they are unstable, and if someone is above them, they run the risk of being subjugated by that group. These are not conscious thoughts. They are pure instinct, and they cannot be changed. Any human group that thinks it has ended this in others by giving them equality, welfare or affirmative action has missed the point: parity is a fiction of those on top, and everyone else knows it is a lie, and is using it against you.

11. The crowd is always wrong, just like most people mildly insane.

You do not know it, but you are a slave. You are not enslaved by a central authority, but by the Crowd. Their opinions determine what you can say; their product-buying choices determine what’s on the market; their government preferences create a “window” of acceptable ideas and anything else is excluded. This is tyranny by the Crowd, and it is how our society keeps order, because the Crowd can be counted on to cheer for free things and boo at anything which requires individual responsibility, obligation to reality or admitting that the self is not the end-all-be-all of judgment, wisdom and direction. A quick look around you will tell you that most people do not have their act together. They can make it through school and to a job, but that’s about it. Their homes are often disasters, their families neurotic nightmares, and their personal choices — from sexual partner to products they buy to their opinions — utter wastelands. It has always been this way, but in the past we used social standards to encourage people to perform above mentally lazy and morally sloppy behavior. No longer; they are liberated now! But their liberation is enslavement of anyone above them in ability. The group does not understand any decisions above its own level and rejects them as nonsense, which means that thought which requires an IQ of above about 110 is entirely incomprehensible to them — and they hate it for making them feel that. In our society, only those who can be victims or show victimhood are fortunate, because in an egalitarian society, only those who need more equality gifted to them will thrive, and only victims can demand that. “Education” cannot help them; they will merely misinterpret what finer minds would understand. Rules do not shape them, because to them every rule is a mystery unless it tells them what they want to hear. Why are products bad? Because it’s easier to sell morons junk than make something actually good. Why is government bad? Because the votes have it, which means the small proportion of smart people — the 13% on the far right of the Bell Curve — are vastly outnumbered. When it comes to the decisions that regulate our future, one in a hundred people can make a sensible choice, and the rest will not understand or fall prey to personal failings. That is the source of your slavery.

12. Your media is fifty years behind.

While the media reports on current events, it does so through a filter based on what has succeeded in the past. Because large groups of people take several generations to get accustomed to any new idea, the media bangs on tropes from fifty years ago. The constant reporting on diversity, class and “gender issues” is part of this, but even political articles fit this narrative from older times. Movies recount events from twenty years ago as if they occurred twice that long in the past, and present this as shocking and revolutionary, but the point is that the audience shapes the message. People do not know what is new; they only know what they recognize as having been cutting-edge when they were children. As a result, the tropes linger far behind the reality, which enables media to keep pushing a simplistic agenda for their own profit.

and so, what does this tell us for the brand new year?

The crazies run the funhouse. Our economy reflects our society: fake, oversold and based in (crazy) illusion. The opposition is divided not because it notices what is wrong, but because it cannot agree on a plan because its members are too busy with self expression to look at realistic solutions. We have 6,000 years of human history and the solutions are obvious but the illusion is more popular. This suggests a first course of action: find unity of purpose, and seize power. The methods do not matter because failure to do this ensures self-destruction. We either evolve and adapt, and take over from the human insanity, or we fail and pass into the graveyard of history.

The fruit of equality

Most people identity George Orwell’s 1984 with a warning about the dangers of totalitarianism. Read more closely, the book serves as a warning about political instability brought on by popular sentiment.

The political authority in the book is IngSoc, short for English Socialism. Citizens are herded into activities like Two Minutes Hate that remind us of corporate team-bonding activities today. Telescreens watch for dissidents. The root of the problem here is not the control itself, but that it is needed.

In the same way, we live in the ruins of equality now. Equality as a concept is like a virus, using altruism as its approach and reductionism as its weapon. Once allowed into a society, it spreads like a cancer, demanding the “democratization” of all things. First we engage in class warfare to make ability levels equal, then equalize the sexes, and finally bring in the third-world labor as equals.

Equality swallows up all other ideas. If you are an environmentalist, you must work equality into your platform; to make the two work together, environmentalism must not tell anyone what to do — unless they are at the levels above equal, at which point they must be punished to benefit others. If you are an architect, your buildings must emphasize equality; scientists must consider all people to be identical molds that serve as interchangeable parts with no biological differences.

Since equality is a fantasy, and if people were actually equal society would quickly disintegrate, equality serves as the perfect control virus. You either obey and go insane, or resist and are marginalized and eventually destroyed. Since the price of success is accepting nonsense as reality, actual competence becomes secondary. This creates a society, headless and out of control, careening toward oblivion…

Returning to 1984, we can read Orwell’s pugnacious analysis of liberalism:

But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

In his view, it is a pure power trip. The joy of subjugating others with ideology and having the ability to abuse them drives these people. He creates this in parallel to the hate rallies that keep people bonded to government:

The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp.

This is what drives the egalitarians. From SJWs gangrushing employers to coerce them into firing employees with controversial opinions, to the mainstream media attacking Donald Trump for even mentioning immigration, all of leftism is an addiction to the power of harming others. It is the rise of those who cannot do much against those who can, and their desire to humiliate, subvert, sabotage and enslave the can-doers. It is human envy, resentment and fear enshrined into a false “goodness” that gives its members license to destroy whatever they want for the brief thrill of power and feeling of superiority.

Even 1984 is infected with this crowd madness. The only conclusion one can come away with from the book is that the crowd is mad, but they can be controlled through “freedom” instead of power-lust. What Brave New World points out, but 1984 missed, is that the root of power-lust is the drive to freedom and individualism. People seek power with their freedom because they lack actual purpose, and because through egalitarianism and assuming that everyone is the same, we have empowered mob rule instead of leadership by the wise and capable.

Physics provides a metaphor here. As written about by Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLilo, modernity consists of chaos: a pretense of order, with people in states of zombie-like panic acting out their individual desires at the expense of the rest. With equality comes chaos, or a lack of cooperation between people, which results in infinite activities of a perverse, distracting, pointless or destructive nature. The concept of entropy comes into play here because it states that, over time, options proliferate.

As more options become available, it becomes less likely that any particular one will be selected; entropy increases. Eventually a state is reached called heat-death where all options are equally the same in value and likelihood of being selected, at which point selection itself shuts down. There is no point doing anything. And so the system drains energy and becomes dead, much like the senescent Soviet Union and now, the modern US-EU axis. Equality creates individualism which creates chaos and ends in a state of paralysis.

If I could leave you with one image, it will be this: that boot smashing into the human face — since not all humans are equal, and most are unable to control themselves, most faces should be smashed by the boot so they do not do the same to the rest of us and doom all of society. Most people are doomed to disappointment by their own inability to control their desires and impulses, but not all of us should go down together, although it appears that “unity” is the goal of liberalism.

Incompetence

the_path_below_degeneration_and_incompetence

Like the force of gravity, the temptation is to accept the narrative and change our thinking so that everything seems like it will turn out okay. Stop resisting, stop questioning, and stop noticing; simply put your faith in the System, which is not the old mean system where Progress meant tearing down trees for factories, but the new happy System in which Progress means that everyone gets to be important as long as they keep going to work for ten hours a day.

Stop and consider instead the plague of our time: incompetence. On the surface, we live in a wonderland of products, services and institutions. Underneath, very little of this works except for the simplest possible cases, generally because it is staffed by incompetent and inattentive people. This occurs because in the postmodern West, “the job is no longer the job”; what matters most is political obedience and the nebulous but important ability to be socially acceptable to others. Those who succeed are sometimes those who exceed the norm, but more likely those who are personable, have memorable mini-biographies in their CV, and avoid stepping in any of the many pitfalls. If you cannot choose the best person, choose someone who causes no problems. The result of this regime appears in the form of people who are very good at avoiding visible mistakes but are actually not all that alert. They get ahead on their confidence that every task fits within the framework they have memorized that serves 80% of tasks but does not apply to the rest. And with society in a state of constant growth, 20% losses are insignificant so long as a new, more credulous audience keeps coming in the door. Why spend time and money on an oddball when there is easy money on a mechanical process of more of the same?

Even at the political level this manifests. Our highest echelons of leaders treat every problem as either a lack of jobs, a need to bomb, or an opportunity to create another institution of bureaucrats. None of these work very well, but the product is not the end result; it is the appearance. The voters are seemingly too perpetually clueless to notice this, but the goods paid for are delivered at the press conference and in the warm feelings that spread through the hive, and influence its buying patterns thus make it more profitable. In the same way, the goal of a product in a big-box store is to make a good presentation in the commercial, seem appealing on the shelf, and then avoid manifesting any of its more blatant problems during the warranty period. Academia and science follow a similar template, inventing “studies” and “theories” that allow people to turn to their neighbor, point at it and execute the classic see-I-told-you-so, then forget about six months later when it comes out that the data was cherry-picked. This dysfunction is universal yet is never noticed. That is: you never see mention of it in print, on the radio, on television or even among a social group. Everyone accepts it as some form of background hum that must be endured but has no particular relevance.

How did we rise to this level of incompetence? One answer is provided above: people who can tell the difference are rare, and it is easier to simply find more clueless people than to take the time and effort to address those with solid needs. In America, we began this process with the importation of non-Western Europeans and extended it through the democratization of education and “success.” This promoted people of incompetent judgment skills who were competent at another sham process, which is education, or the memorization of many “facts” and then reciting them on demand in a slightly different order. With the rise of the educated dummies, a new consumer class had been found; its members lacked the intelligence to separate a good-looking bad deal from a good deal, so they got the former and the latter, being obsolete in market terms, vanished from the earth. If you wonder why the refrigerator breaks after exactly twelve months and one day, or why most movies are pitched at the intelligence level of a retarded sloth, here is your answer. Idiots with degrees and specializations constituted a replacement middle class, and they could be counted on to buy moron products like Porsche SUVs and fridges that could tweet when you need more milk. The division between these two is illustrated in a classic work by Albert Jay Nock, in which he discusses the division between mass culture and The Remnant, or those with the capacity to create civilization and discern good from stupid:

Why, if all that were so — if the enterprise were to be a failure from the start — was there any sense in starting it? “Ah,” the Lord said, “you do not get the point. There is a Remnant there that you know nothing about. They are obscure, unorganized, inarticulate, each one rubbing along as best he can. They need to be encouraged and braced up because when everything has gone completely to the dogs, they are the ones who will come back and build up a new society; and meanwhile, your preaching will reassure them and keep them hanging on. Your job is to take care of the Remnant, so be off now and set about it.”

…As the word “masses” is commonly used, it suggests agglomerations of poor and underprivileged people, laboring people, proletarians, and it means nothing like that; it means simply the majority. The mass man is one who has neither the force of intellect to apprehend the principles issuing in what we know as the humane life, nor the force of character to adhere to those principles steadily and strictly as laws of conduct; and because such people make up the great and overwhelming majority of mankind, they are called collectively the masses. The line of differentiation between the masses and the Remnant is set invariably by quality, not by circumstance. The Remnant are those who by force of intellect are able to apprehend these principles, and by force of character are able, at least measurably, to cleave to them. The masses are those who are unable to do either.

In other words, incompetence arises from mass taste. The Remnant are those who could create our civilization anew and who can tell the difference between quality and junk, but that makes them bad consumers, where the masses — those with no particular ability except obedience — are excellent consumers and useless at restoring civilization. Spengler would observe that most civilizations extinguish themselves by forming an internal preference for masses over Remnant, which explains why third-world nations consist of the remains of once-great empires, now staffed by people who cannot understand much less replicate what their ancestors — and higher-caste employers — once did with ease.

Charles Darwin described this progress as degeneration, which occurs when evolutionary pressures are altered to select for more generalized traits, as happens when industry needs consumers and elects to cram as many fools in the door as possible. That method of control, or of manipulating others as means to an end and not as part of the organic whole that is society, appears frequently when civilizations lose contact with their original genetic unity and become participation- or politics-based. As Darwin writes:

With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination. We build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.

The aid which we feel impelled to give to the helpless is mainly an incidental result of the instinct of sympathy, which was originally acquired as part of the social instincts, but subsequently rendered, in the manner previously indicated, more tender and more widely diffused. Nor could we check our sympathy, even at the urging of hard reason, without deterioration in the noblest part of our nature. The surgeon may harden himself whilst performing an operation, for he knows that he is acting for the good of his patient; but if we were intentionally to neglect the weak and helpless, it could only be for a contingent benefit, with an overwhelming present evil. Hence we must bear without complaining the undoubtedly bad effects of the weak surviving and propagating their kind; but there appears to be at least one check in steady action, namely the weaker and inferior members of society not marrying so freely as the sound; and this check might be indefinitely increased, though this is more to be hoped for than expected. – Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, pgs. 168 -169

In this passage, he carefully targets pity as a source of social decline. We see others struggling, and in them, see a social property for ourselves: we can feel good, and look good to others, for the simple cost of helping an incompetent. The same impulse that causes people to give money to beggars when out for a walk with the girlfriend, or to insist that everyone must get along in a class of kindergartners of uneven abilities, propels our desire for altruism or the helping of those who cannot or will not help themselves. Altruism, which is self-interest masked behind manipulating the social feelings of others, is the basis of equality (“egalitarianism” is apparently too big of a word for the internet audience). Equality in turn is the basis of accepting incompetence as equal to competence so long as the incompetence is obedient, personable, etc.

We have reached a tipping point in the West where the masses have overwhelmed the Remnant, and are now pushing hard to exterminate it. Typical masses M.O. here is to either stage a revolution and directly punish those with wealth and intelligence (but not wealth alone) or to create a completely unworkable situation politically and then expect the Remnant to rise up, volunteer to fight, and go die defending liberty for people who cannot use and will not risk themselves to achieve it. Witness the massive debacle that was the OPM hack, referred to by many as a “Cyber Pearl Harbor,” and the surprising origin for its success despite our advance warning of its inevitability through the Hollywood hack and credit card hacks of major retailers. A post-mortem reveals that its cause was mass-culture incompetence before anything else:

A consultant who did some work with a company contracted by OPM to manage personnel records for a number of agencies told Ars that he found the Unix systems administrator for the project “was in Argentina and his co-worker was physically located in the [People’s Republic of China]. Both had direct access to every row of data in every database: they were root. Another team that worked with these databases had at its head two team members with PRC passports. I know that because I challenged them personally and revoked their privileges. From my perspective, OPM compromised this information more than three years ago and my take on the current breach is ‘so what’s new?'”

Obedient mass culture people lack the skill of judgment, which is what separates the idea of what we can do from what will achieve sensible results. That is, your average mass culture nitwit knows how to do things, and he applies those without regard to circumstance, which is why he can solve only 80% of problems and the remainder baffle him (and he screws them up). The inoffensive, personable and interesting manager simply outsources to China. Well, of course the admin passwords go too — what do you think, that he is a racist? And so insanity passes for intelligence, of all things, because the Americans are so hamstrung by social obligations to be nice, interesting and inoffensive that they ignore the actual task. Someone from the Remnant would not have screwed this up; people from the mass culture get it wrong every time.

When people like myself talk about reclaiming the West, our goal can be expressed simply: changing our society so it again rewards the Remnant over mass culture, and deposing the incompetents and the mass culture vote, consumerism and social forces that propel such people into power every time over the Remnant. This also recognizes the tendency of mass culture toward ressentiment against the Remnant, and explains its ongoing desire to pervert, corrupt, dumb down and otherwise adulterate every aspect of modern life. This also shows why, as I have been writing about for years, the real Rubicon we must cross is the idea of equality itself, and that all other problems stem from that. The point of class warfare is to overthrow the competent so the incompetent mass culture can reign; the point of immigration and diversity is to destroy the Remnant genetically. All of these things are linked to a singular tendency of incompetents, which is to be apologists for decline who “explain it away” by demanding attention to unrelated and less important issues instead. Incompetents are in a perpetual state of compensation where they cannot address the actual problems, so invent other ways to stay employed, and end up re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic until they are surprised by a sudden influx of water which, also shockingly, is deathly cold in a way their minds could never conceptualize until that moment.
