Armchair Socialism

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Abraham Lopez-Carpenter lounged in his deluxe armchair, his eyes blank and shrouded as he looked back over his life as a series of connected incidents leading up to the present state.

He often expressed to the friends the view that he was living in the best timeline. Democracy had beaten back the authoritarians, disease had been conquered, and now, the Replicator enabled world Socialism to thrive. In the corner it hummed, the size of a small refrigerator.

The bad old days from history books told the story of a humanity which lived by subsistence farming, hunting and foraging, constantly beset by disease and attacks from other animals, including other humans. Any great society which arose was quickly bashed down and remained only as ruins. Idiocy won, whether by heartless rulers or fools en masse at ballot boxes.

It reached its lowest level in the twenty-first century when an unstable economy built on value bubbles colliding with an over-expanded populations. Whole continents roiled with conflict, culminating in the “sledge wars” (from Middle English slegge, to hit or slay, cf. German Schläge, impacts) where whole nations rushed at each other armed with only rusty assault rifles, machetes, hammers, bats, and spears. Several cities vanished into ashen toxic wastelands through nuclear terrorism.

But despite these setbacks, the fledgling species had risen above its conditions, inventing germ theory, the printing press, the internal combustion engine and finally, the digital computer. With that it rose to a new level of power: it could model its world accurately, and through that, undertake an understanding of physics and chemistry it had only dreamed of before.

And from that, he thought, came the third great revolution in technology: the Replicator. Named for its inspiration on a science fiction television program back in the blood-soaked twentieth century, this device took in energy and spat out objects. Abraham could summon a steak, perfectly medium rare and steaming, or ask it for a circuit board or even oxygen.

He recalled thinking what a victory that was, when he first heard of the Replicator, at age nineteen.

Now he hobbled into the kitchen on unsteady legs after rising from his sofa. He had not worked for years since, with the Replicators and the zero-point energy used to fuel them, there was no scarcity. Everything was free. He could work for a few months and have enough to buy a Replicator, then print himself a house and any food, tools, books or other goods he needed.

Even more, he could do it anywhere he wanted. What was heat, when you could have a Replicator spit out a hundred-kilogram block of ice every time minutes? You could live in the desert, on a floating barge, in a cave or far from the big cities. In fact, the cities had given way to a sort of worldwide suburb of apartment buildings.

Any work that did need doing mostly involved communicating with robot workers in distant factories, and this required people to be accessible but not solely devoted to a task. It was common for people to pick up the phone while watching video, or have to step aside while out in the world to make a quick adjustment through their mobile devices. But not that common; things mostly ran themselves.

He reached over to the Replicator and hit one of the preset keys. Lunch — an exact replica of the pastrami sandwiches made at Gallatone’s Deli in New York during the latter half of the previous century — appeared, with a glass of beer from a random small brewery in Austria as selected by the computer within the Replicator.

Inside of the unit, he knew, a dense and fan-like structure assembled zero point energy, using nanoscale structures to sample it from the space surrounding us, which scientists learned some time ago is pulsing with energy constant, just waiting to be sampled and used. Free energy meant free materials with the Replicator, which meant the death of scarcity and oddly, property.

But for many years, the Replicator was nothing more than a rumor. The powerful had them, some said, and others said that they were still not quite working right. He imagined that for someone who was super-rich, a Replicator would actually be nothing more than a novelty. And then he looked at his faded jeans, ragged sneakers and bologna sandwich lunch.

The day that Abraham turned thirty-one years of age, World Federalist Socialism had been declared on the basis that, with the end of scarcity, not only capitalism but nations themselves were obsolete. Governments and banks were abolished. Everyone would get a Replicator. The world shuddered with three days of celebration.

At the time, Abraham had been a schoolteacher and he was trying to explain biology to bored tenth-graders who were just marking time until they got jobs and careers took over their lives. “Yeast are small organisms related to fungi,” he told his students. “They produce blooms, or sudden explosions of population followed by die-offs, when confronted with an unlimited food source, like this bucket of sugar. But that is how we get alcohol, which is toxic to yeast as well as us, but we can handle a lot more of it, so we become drunk instead of dying, usually.” Someone fell out of a chair, asleep.

When he went home that night, finding his spacious but expensive apartment empty as usual because his wife left him on his birthday the year before, he wondered what the future would hold. Socialism, taboo after the twentieth century, now seemed possible. The full impact of the Replicator hit him.

His fellow teachers often discussed their own topics, and one of his conversation partners was a history teacher. He frequently opined, and told his students, that socialism was great in theory, but was impossible in reality for two reasons: human nature and scarcity. The latter, he said, was obvious; limited resources forced people to compete for them, but it was the former that really doomed it. Humans just like to own things, and because they compete, they want more than others, he would say with a shrug.

Abraham often returned to that idea. He felt comfortable in the environment of a school where every person had an assigned role and was graded on it but otherwise had no consequences to deal with. It was a welcome break from renting apartments, buying cars on time, filing taxes, figuring out health insurance and planning for retirement, and he thrived in it.

He liked the notion of socialism for that reason: everyone would stop worrying about money and focus on learning. For adults, maybe school was not the model, he thought, and tried to conjure up an image of a hybrid between a church, farm and factory but his mind gave up on the jagged dimensions formed by trying to fuse those extremes. But he wondered if his colleague was actually correct.

For a biology teacher, life seemed to be a tension between the desire to be nice, and natural selection. We could help everyone, but then we might have a lot of people standing around doing nothing. If the vicious got ahead, at least we selected for competence. Abraham tired of this thought as soon as it popped into his head, and it usually left a lingering headache.

The Replicator changed his view of socialism. Suddenly we could have it all, and everyone could have it all. Replicators could even make other Replicators. You could give one to a friend and lift them out of poverty forever. If their house was in the ghetto, they could print a new one. If they found open land, they could build one. No one would ever starve or go without again.

Abraham watched the news segments announcing the change over and over again, using his ability to record video on his television. This could be a new era, he thought. People would have all the time in the world to learn, to improve, and to do the right thing by their families. He felt as if human evolution had finally begun.

The next day, his alarm clock squalled for ten minutes before he could get out of bed. A great pressure had been lifted. When he got to school, it seemed like everyone else was in the same mood; half of the students were not even present. And in the teacher’s lounge, there was a Replicator standing there. He walked up to it and said, “Gimme a beer.”

As a bottle of Pilsner Urquell materialized in the unit, he heard cheers from the other teachers. They got almost nothing done that day, their minds working overtime to grasp the changes that had happened. But the next day it was back to the grind because no one wanted to become one of those people who had no role except sitting at home, huddled by their Replicator with no purpose.

Looking back to those days from his forty-fifth birthday, Abraham managed a wry smile. How naïve they had all been! How little they had understood! Life had changed, indeed, but not in a way that anyone could have predicted.

World socialism made great changes at first. Half of the workforce just went home. The armies disbanded, governments abolished themselves, and people basically lived for their own sense of purpose. It took two weeks for people to understand it, and then they started to live it. Abraham remembered going to work every morning with shaking hands, excited for the future.

What was it like to live in a time where no one needed anything? And more importantly, where owning stuff no longer made you important? If he needed gold, he could print it up by the ton. Since he could do this anywhere, the cities were no longer important, and so land was not particularly valuable either.

But at the two week point, something changed in humanity. At first, there had been a frenzy of activity as people left jobs, abandoned cities and set up homesteads. But then, a new form of scarcity emerged: importance. If you packed up the family, moved to a desolate spot in Texas, and built a great home there, no one would care. This was good, in that the society that Abraham always felt was oppressive no longer had a way of controlling you; on the other hand, it also deprived you of any kind of role and left you alone, watching videos, reading books, and playing games in your own little nation of one.

This left most people without a social group. At first, people made grand plans about what they would do with the time. But hobbies, given infinite room to expand, tended to run into heat-death; there was only so much that the average sculptor, musician, writer or designer could do with their time.

Even more, however, no one knew what to do with the product. You could print yourself up a copy of any classic album or artwork, since the Replicator stored a digital blueprint for every object that existed at the time it was invented. People would hit a few buttons and get any book, game, movie, music, or art from any time in history, so there was no real need for the massive surge of stuff that people created.

In fact, it seemed that the classics and popular works just got more popular, at least with classic rock, which was what Abraham enjoyed, along with some alt-country, sometimes. He thought that having access to all of the music made by humanity would entirely change the canon, but instead, more people would enjoying the classic bands. They were just better.

Really popular music, the stuff on the big radio stations that had millions of dollars in hype behind it, did fade quite a bit, but not as much as he thought. As it turned out, people liked participating in the next big thing, so any musician who rose to be popular found themselves more in demand than ever before. This made them important.

For some, this created a great opportunity. The few artists and musicians who were naturally gifted found themselves able to influence billions of people at the same time by releasing their work to the internet, where the Replicators could download it and reproduce it. Everyone else just faded into the background, and soon their instruments, paints, typewriters and cameras were languishing in disuse.

Even more surprising to Abraham was how competitive jobs became. Society had split into two: the relevant people, and those who dwelled alone in obscurity and were essentially forgotten, relegated to unperson status through a lack of anything to offer. So people became beggars, worse than with jobs, and went out to find places where they were socially important again.

Long lines formed outside workplaces. The salaries remained at zero because anyone could print up a hunk of gold or a Mercedes-Benz if they needed one. But to have a title and a position of power made people feel less like they were pushing up against the cold inexorable nothingness of the void, and so people ran screaming toward jobs with wild terror in their eyes.

Worse, jobs shifted entirely toward popularity. It used to be that a teacher strove to make sure the students, at least those who could, would learn the material. Now, the emphasis changed to whichever teacher was more entertaining, personable, quirky, and interesting. No one taught straight history or biology anymore; they invented an obscure theory, like that mitochondria were self-aware or that all of history was a quest for foodie-level cuisine, and re-interpreted everything through that. People thronged for whatever was the new latest thing, and inconsistency expanded.

Abraham could no longer count on his students knowing much about basic biology that they could connect to other ideas because their heads were full of these clashing novelties of different theories, and many had participated in school mostly as a social event anyway. Education became a competition for attention, just like jobs, and the actual goal of it was forgotten.

Fearing that this would consume humanity, the inventor of the Replicator made a tweak: he removed the inability to clone humans. Now, he reasoned, people would stop being so manic about popularity, which he interpreted as a search for suitable mates; they could just clone themselves an Elizabeth Taylor, Nicole Kidman, Lauren Bacall, or Taylor Swift.

Apparently other motivations were behind the work expansion. People no longer bothered with the family, nor even really with long-term relationships. What mattered was being in a relationship with someone important. Children sort of happened, but they were easy because parents could print up a robot nanny, send the kids to school, and then set them up with their own Replicator and push them out into the world. Parents were viewed as friends more than anything else.

There was no point making laws about the Replicators, either. The cops were busy doing what made them socially important, and that meant publicity stunts and rescuing cats from trees, not chasing down the people who would follow their ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends, hoping to snag some DNA so that they could clone the person and then use or abuse the clone. People had been motivated by money for so long that there was no way to motivate people except to help fill that existential void with friendship, attention, and name recognition.

People became less inclined to be helpful, more narcissistic, and more bloated with excess than ever before. The species reproduced rapidly, taking up essentially every square inch of natural ground, and then taking to the oceans by printing themselves giant floating barges upon which shipping-container apartments were piled. Litter, once limited by purchasing power, exploded as people Replicated themselves objects, tired of them, and flung them out of their dwellings.

Frenetic activity gripped the world as people tried to become important. Abraham waited it out, then took retirement, which paid him zero in benefits. It was better to be alone and forgotten than part of this raging madness.

He found a patch of ground and printed himself an average-sized house, then spent his days puttering around in the garden. He took up knitting, for something to do as he watched the endless stream of movies that humanity was generating, and stopped reading books entirely. There was no more wisdom, only moments of attention or endless silence.

At some point he read that the last natural species had gone extinct. Humanity could print its own air, meat, pets, and clothing, so it had no use for nature. There were no longer forests, just a world covered in apartments, between which were vast piles of what looked like garbage, but which were really simply discarded objects that the previous generation would have fought over.

New cities cropped up, based on being important. The capital of them was Las Vegas, where people went for the bragging rights at having gambled for no money and Replicated themselves free cocktails far into the night. No one showed up for the icky jobs, like housemaid or sewage engineer. But bartenders and directors of urban planning, each of whom got to demonstrate how fascinating their personalities and ideas were, were hard-fought positions, sometimes literally as fistfights broke out in employment lines.

The billionaires faded away, replaced by a celebrity culture in which anyone could become famous, and everyone wanted to. To be famous, however, you could not be functional, because that was boring; you had to invent new ideas, and they needed to be not obvious, so most of them consistent of subtle ironies, or objects which did not fulfill their actual role in order to take on an aesthetic one.

It was as if the fashion industry took over the world. The bartender at his favorite watering hole became famous for a line of drinks that used cruciferous vegetables and sap from an obscure Japanese maple, and the director of urban planning became a household name for designing cities around the concept of the housing shaped like Egyptian spiral patterns. The plans were free on the net and anyone could Replicate them.

He began to see this process as an inverted “tragedy of the commons.” As everyone competed for attention, any sense of unity of task or even participation in the same reality went away. The world began to look like an explosion of art projects and design portfolios, each more bizarre than the next, and inevitably clashing. Abraham felt relief in shutting the door on the multicolored chaotic mess that his neighborhood had become.

Now in his late 60s, he felt that he lived in the best timeline, but that it had some of the worst results. No one needed anything, but they craved attention even more than the objects of their former needs, and the result was a chaotic mob of people covered in flamboyant tattoos, wearing deliberately nonsensical clothing, talking about irrelevant ideas, and chasing whatever trend was having its fifteen minutes of fame.

Abraham instructed the Replicator to make him a Cohiba cigar, pre-cut, and lit it with a gold lighter he had just laying around with the other junk in his place, none of which he gave half a tinker’s damn about. Someone had said that somewhere out there, people were inventing the ability to replicate yourself organs and other body parts, so that you could live forever. “Screw that,” he said sourly.

Standing before the Replicator in a cloud of blue smoke, Abraham felt something more intense than anything he had experienced out in the world for some time: regret. He regretted teaching biology so that students could go on to lucrative careers, and wished he had taught literature instead. Fiction focused on meaning, and that was the responsibility of each individual, and could not be achieved with popularity or relevance to a conveyor-belt culture of incessant distraction.

Ironically, he thought, evolution had backfired with the Replicators, and maybe digital computers or the internal combustion engine. No one knew what to do with themselves, and for most, it revealed that they never really had anything going on inside anyway. Abraham sighed. Somewhere out there he had a daughter, covered in tattoos and probably the semen of a dozen men, lost to her own soul.

He walked over to the Replicator, resisting the urge to smash it as that would pointlessly result in his starvation. Instead, he began programming it to reach back to the point before the stepping-off moment that led to the Now. When he was satisfied, he fired up another cigar and shuffled over to his favorite chair.

Cool air swept over him in darkness. He had not been aware of awakening, which means that he must have dozed off in his chair — one of the hazards of being fortunate enough to become old, he reflected — and come back to consciousness through the same easy path. The door to the next room was shut, and he did not remember shutting it.

Standing up, he went to the door and listened. No sound. He twisted the knob, and the door swung open silently. In the darkness, he saw the gleam of a dozen eyes, with the open window showing him more in the backyard. He backed away slowly, then picked up the stack of books from his end table.

“This is for you,” he said, handing a book to the first, then the next. He went back several times, giving away a hundred books to the results of his Replicator program, which had resurrected the DNA code of a distant ancestor, the Northmen who had raged over Europe with a fierce hatred for those they saw as weak.

Sitting back down in his chair with another cigar, he became aware of the eyes around him in the close darkness. “The people out there,” he said, drawing in smoke, “are weak. They do not have souls. They cannot understand these books, which tell you how to have a soul, and why you must fight for it. All the gold in the world cannot buy us honor, clarity of purpose, or self-respect.”

He felt his creations nod although he could not see them. “I want you to go out there, into this world, and do what you see as right,” he said. The air moved slightly as they departed through the open window, leaping down onto the hard packed earth and spreading into the night.

At an apartment down the street, the first of his Vikings stopped. The structure, made of cubes of different colors of orange arranged in a yin-yang, housed several tan-hued people covered in tattoos who were wearing charade ball costumes, complete with exaggerated plastic phalluses and breasts, decorated with feathers of many colors.

Next to his creation, the first of these products of the end of time simply looked puny and ordinary, with none of the composure of the barbarian.

“Hey man, we got a party going, and the latest mixtape, with the most extreme orgy you have ever seen,” the product said. “You’ll fit right in, it’ll be great — ”

He trailed off in a gargling of blood. The Viking turned back to Abraham, holding a glistening object, which he raised to the light so all could see. It was a human spine. Abraham nodded. The Viking threw back his head, emitted a bloodcurling howl from a time before language, and with his compatriots, rushed into the night. The revolution had begun.

Neo-Nazism Is Whites-Only Socialism

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Socialists, like all Leftists, worship equality. They believe the State is a family. They believe you absolutely cannot have society without socialism. Anyone who disagrees is nothing but a stoned Libertardian who doesn’t realize flush toilets would be impossible without common infrastructure to dispose of the wastes. People who live in society’s family, on the other hand, can lead the Life of Julia.

But wait. This was Barack Obama. This was socialism that catered to minorities and brought in more minorities. It subsidized the importation of inferior people and therefore got inferior outcomes. Heck, if stocked with moron, affirmative-action pozzoids, Wall Street could even blow up the housing market or something. Put them in charge and major energy companies will immediately steal their employee pension funds and lie about their earnings to boost the CEO’s compensation package. Get too many of those people in charge of the government, and they’ll start pointless, unwinnable wars in countries that have virtually nothing to do with America’s national security intrests. And you don’t really even want them in Congress either. They’ll keep asking NASA scientists where on Mars the US astronauts put up the flag.

Now if you’ve read this paragraph and followed the links, you may well notice that it subtly inverts a common meme you’ll read on one of these websites. Two of the villains in the paragraph above were pozzoid poachers of the worst order. But what of the other three examples? Ken Lay, Ken Lewis, Jamie Dimon and The Bush Cuck Dynasty are all nasty in a common way. They also share a common nastiness with Barack Obama and Sheila Jackson Lee. All five sets of malefactors share the common malady despite the politcally correct !DIVERSITY! of their skin pigmentations. All five examples I’ve cited are at least somewhat incentivized by ideologies that feature large government intervention in markets to improve outcomes. In other words, it’s the introduction of the negative incentivization implicit to socialism that leads every person I’ve mentioned above to do or say remarkably evil things.

To describe things further, the problem with any sort of system where the government takes resources from some people and uses them to benefit the tribe, the order, the race, the umma or whatever, is one of moral hazard. Moral hazard occurs when people recognize that they are able to mine the system, tribe, corporation, nation or whatever we are discussing for benefits without putting any skin in the game. They get membership in the collective without having to pay for it and then start receiving “Lebensraum,” entitlements, artificially inflated stock options or any other collective benefit paid for with the taxes, property or blood of other individuals in the group. This invariably gets abused. This ability to parasite off the system invariably allows the worms to multiply and to eat the beautiful and complex higher-order organism.

The problem here is that many people, even those supposedly on the Alt-Right, believe that socialism involves nothing more than publicly governed, owned or financed property. This is not accurate. Socialism is an ideology that argues that people are entitled to use and enjoy this property regardless of whether they are required to do anything to earn that right. There is some inherent characteristic that allows them a special right to inflict The Tragedy of The Commons on others without concern for the societal outcome. The typical Communist version of this is that a member of The Proletariat gets to do this as redress for past slights or depredations. They even have a potemkin Theory of Surplus Value to accuse anyone who expects them to get a job and support themselves of being an exploiter.

Civic Nationalists subscribe to The Magic Dirt Theory. Get plopped out in the right country and you get all the benefits of that country. You can even directly and deliberately insult that nation like Lt Rapone or Colin Kaepernick and still get all the rights, benefits and privileges of a heroic Combat Rifleman who got an arm and leg shot off back in The Tet Offensive.

Credentialists argue that getting the piece of paper from the right University and knowing all the right people allows you to take over a corporation and run it like Ken Lay, or more recently, Heather Bresch. Again, neither of these individuals has to contribute, they have the right papers so they get to be CEO and rape it for what the futhermucker is worth.

In case of White National Socialists, the entitlement mentality is no different. They are !WHITE! Maybe even genetically white enough to pass as Shuan King. Therefore, they actually expect to receive that Platinum White Privilege Visa Card in the mail that Mr. King hypocritically and dishonestly accuses them of walking around with and using to get unfair benefits. National Socialism, as practiced under the auspices the White Nationalist Movement; is simply dishonest socialist entitlement based on racial characteristics. It’s still a one-way ticket to hell. Hitler’s Berlin ended up just like Democratic Party Detroit. Both were governed by Socialists. Both wound up in ruins. The means vary. The result doesn’t. Socialism leads to death.

And I get the case for preferring white cultures to others. I get that not just because of the fact that I’m corusucatingly white like the undershirts in a Tide commercial. White culture gave us this:

Euclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information theory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-p hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Roads. Buildings. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera.

Let #BLM go off in the woods and live without that stuff for a month because #CulturalAppropriation. White culture is why you use a functional toilet instead of a cat box or a hole in the ground. White Pride, without a pestilential background of hatred towards the other, is understandable, logical and should be cultivated in all of our children.

Staving off White Genocide, promoting White Pride, celebrating various white cultures and keeping the successful and positive traditions of all of these societies alive should be an unquestioned good that people of good will should actively pursue. You can protect yourself, respect yourself, continue your kind and elevate them yeah, verily to the stars without any sense of entitlement. The sense of entitlement is not what made the White Race great. We didn’t take over and redefine the planet as a Great Society Program. Socialism is not the key to accomplishing this goal. Whitewashing the tragedy of the commons will not somehow make it less tragic. Socialism can only lead to death in the end.

We Know Better

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Long ago, we had a system called hierarchy where we took the people who were smartest and most prone to do the right thing in every circumstance, and put them on the top. They ruled over the rest of us, which by the very nature of humanity, involved telling us that what we “felt” or desired was not going to lead to a good outcome, so we could not do it.

That never sits well with a man, being treated like a child, reasoned the herd. Given that humanity is 90% people who need to be told what to do, and only 9% who can be delegated tasks to, most people need to be restrained from their own impulse to self-destruction most of the time. But the herd knew better.

“Those kings, it’s just an accident of birth,” the shopkeeper said, because he always says what flatters his customers. Say something nice, sell an extra pound of cheese, and the wife of the peasant or artisan who buys it will never tell and her husband will never ask. So the shopkeepers grew wealthy on the pretense of the unpunished herd.

Then the masses were formed, of the shopkeepers and the peasants, and they decided that the kings really were worthless. They worked with the rich merchants of the cities to overthrow the kings. Those who had read and understood the classics of history, who knew things about human nature, said this was a bad idea, and that we needed hierarchy.

“Oh, no,” said the proles. They brought out their own writings which used complex but irrelevant theory to suggest otherwise. “The kings are merely a social construct. When the people rule, we will end the abuses that were perpetrated upon us because we, who are obviously equal because we are people too, were obviously innocent.”

The elders thought that one over. The notion of “equality” slipped into the concept that they knew as “fairness,” which was that you listened to people and tried to do what was right before them. But they were baffled, because people were obviously not equal on the inside, where some showed more intelligence, moral character, determination and honor than others. The elders rejected the new idea.

We Know Better, said the crowd.

So the great experiment began! After all, all of the great works from the past suggested that this was a bad idea, based in no small amount on the graves of Rome and Athens signaling the end of the civilizations which were widely acknowledged as our superiors, except in technology, of course. But onward bravely we sailed.

The first thing that happened was that people were reduced to their dollar value. In the past, the kings and aristocrats were considered divine, or of the bloodlines closest to the divine, at least, and so they owned the land and laid out the social structure. No more! Now every person was free to join the lottery of salaries. They might earn more, but more likely, they earned less.

“Obviously, we can fix that, too,” said the sages of the new age of ideology. They got to work and busily wrote reams of law to make sure that hiring and firing were fair. They instituted taxes to pay for those who were “poor,” a nebulous category which included anyone who was not of the middle class, that is, with a stable salary, home and high tax rate.

Proud at having fixed that one, the sages turned to the next problem, which was that economies blew up every now and then because the masses, having no structure, moved in waves of panic at what had just failed and greed toward what seemed to be the Next Big Thing. The old sages suggested social order, where investment was limited to those who knew something about it.

We Know Better.

The new sages appointed leaders, created banks, expanded government and busily wrote more reams of laws. These seemed to just intensify social competition, so they raised taxes more to pay for those who were not succeeding. This made jobs nearly unbearable, with people giving most of their time just to live, and to pay the taxes, of course. The old sages pointed out that they warned people.

“You have removed social order,” they said. They pointed out that, in the hands of the merchants, civilization had become crass, a race to the lowest common denominator so that one could capture the widest audience, since the 90% were known for their low standards and fascination with the crass, sexual, excremental, cloyingly sentimental and mindlessly violent.

In the meantime, the herd was rioting again. It turned out that the new rules just made it easier for those with money to make more money, but even worse, the burden of red tape and legal barriers made it harder for smaller businesses to compete. And so the rich got richer, the middle class got poorer, and the poor got government benefits.

The new sages produced their final idea: since everyone was equal, everyone deserved the same money and power, so they would take from the wealthy and give to the poor. Refulgent in its simplicity, the theory seemed to defeat all. Unfortunately, it then collapsed, so they patched it up by saying that now they would not take from business, only individuals.

That made the richer citizens smile. They could keep their wealth in their businesses, and raise taxes on income, which would hit the middle class and then those suckers could pay for the poor. The laughter echoed through the halls of commerce and exclusive clubs in the center of the big cities.

By now marginalized to the outside of scholarship and literature, the old sages warned: you will merely replace social order with a commercial order, and by limiting that order, replace it in turn with government, which serves only itself. It seems like power to the people, but in fact it is slavery, thinly-disguised behind an economy and “good intentions.”

We Know Better.

The new sages of the herd came up with their next brilliant idea. In order to make everyone happy, the solution was for all of us to live the same way. We each got an apartment, a car and a job; we went to the job, and got taxed; the taxes paid for others, and then everyone would live in peace because no one had less than anyone else. We could be identical as equals.

At this revelation, a new energy infused the population. Finally, we were all equal, and all we had to do was obediently go through education, attend our jobs, do everything on the checklists for each task, and then we had up to four hours a night to amuse ourselves with television, alcohol, sex, drugs and motorcars.

For the new sages, this was a boon, because now they had most of the population on their side. Every person wanted their equal share, and was bigoted and paranoidly suspicious of anyone who proposed any other idea. Like ants, they swarmed over anyone who suggested otherwise, or merely failed to agree, and tore them to pieces, carting off the remains for themselves.

“The problem with this society is that you cannot tell the truth,” said the old sages. So they expressed themselves through literature, warning that the city and its businesses, if unleashed, became self-serving like everything else in this life, and would simply consume everything good and replace it with assembly line style interchangeable parts, rote process and divided roles.

Like the Romantics before them, they warned that the greatest risk to us was not some shadowy group, but ourselves. In a mob, we express ideas that are more emotion and personal attention-seeking than reality, and by chasing this phantom of the unreal, we lead ourselves over a cliff just like those ancient societies did.

We Know Better.

The new sages realized that their power might wane, so they introduced a series of distractions. First we had to all fight for sexual equality, which meant the ability to have sex with anyone and not be seen as less important for it. Next, we had to bring in other ethnic groups in order to be truly equal. Finally, we need more payments for the poor to keep everything fair.

“It’s just distraction,” said the old sages. They realized that the herd was deflecting from its own bad choices, and rationalizing decay instead of acting against it. But the masses were fully mobilized now. They were educated! They were empowered! They had money, too. And so they tore down any idea but going further along the existing path.

This forced civilization into a quandary: the few who seemed sensible opposed the new way, but everyone else wanted it, and they were more numerous. Now there was no way out but a breakup, with the Know-Betters on one side, and those who were skeptical after centuries of problems on the other.

Ironically, this brought us back to where we had been before the whole Know-Better crusade started. The kings, aristocrats, caste, culture and customs of the past — including a faith that this life is good, and therefore the end of the body is not The End — served a role, but only a few people could understand them.

And as history had shown, once again, those were the people who knew better, not the crowd.

Eurasia Does Not Hold Answers For The West

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

It is often said on the Right that places like Poland, Russia and Hungary offer the Alt Right an example of how to resist Cultural Marxism. There is truth to this, but the truth is only partial.

Although these countries are safer places to live because of their defiance of globalist interests, specifically its mania for multiculturalism, they also show us that the way to resist Cultural Marxism is clear to them in ways it cannot be clear to us. We have gone down a different path, and the solution we need is different from what Eurasia needs.

Eastern Europe has not experienced the caste revolt that makes our problem in the West so intractable. Eurasian nations are not in a revolutionary state. They are in a disordered state, but their proles do not have the privilege and financial backing that they do here. Nor do the financial interests benefit as much from riling them up as they would in the West. Their plebs are not weaponized and driven by the possibility of success as ours are. In this sense, they are not so much Right-wing as not infected with the Leftism that comes with wealth and the inevitably ensuing caste revolt.

We suffer from the intersection of low caste, high wealth, and influence. Our plebs have deceived us into giving them the crumbs from underneath our tables, and we have deceived ourselves into believing that they can be just as wise and capable as our naturally higher caste people. They have proclaimed: “Liberté, égalité, fraternité” and they have cut off our heads for buying it. With our success came new challenges, the most radical of which is the caste revolt sponsored by Leftism, individualism and solipsism.

Eurasia has never really ever been first world, and thus has not grown wary of success. They have not suffered the tragedy of the commons, caused by too few leaders of distinction or too many followers of indistinction. The comforts of a thriving civilization have not brought them too much zeal and too much distraction. Eurasia, just like Asia, has only become wealthy because they had close alliance with European nations, which even though they are in decline, are still living off of the advancements of their technological inventions, which is why most people do not realize that we are in decline. When it comes to technological advancement of civilization Eurasians contributed almost nothing compared to Europeans. Particularly German- and English-speaking Europeans created all of this stuff, but then it came to rule them.

Eurasia has not been plagued by diversity hysteria the way Europe has. We have grown comfortable with our powers, but we have transferred that comfort to those who cannot control their appetites for greater comforts or luxuries. We gave our people equal rights and they spent those rights on porn, cigarettes, beer and donuts, so to speak. These are the problems encountered only by successful civilizations, and since we are more successful than Eurasia, we encounter problems that are baffling to them.

The West suffers because they have peaked and allowed themselves to grow soft. They have also forgotten how they became successful. It suffers under the dual burden of being wealthy, and therefore attracting parasites, and the intense labor required to keep a complex society functioning. We have exhausted ourselves by making a paradise that ultimately our proles and foreigners will get to enjoy, and this sickens the Western soul and makes people despairing, since there is no future that they can believe in. The good news is that the West can save itself because it has only itself to blame for its predicament.

To reverse our corruption by success, we can fix ourselves by mentally ejecting the notion of equality from our lives. This requires noticing that all people have a degree of ability; this includes both responsibility and comforts. Some can have many comforts available, but not give into them, and still perform their responsibilities. Recognizing what one can and should have is necessary for proper order to be achieved and maintained. Each of us has a nature, and we should endeavor to know our nature in order to know our place in the order. This is the essence of natural law: there is a hierarchy which is not inherent in the sense of being forced upon us like gravity, but innate in that if we can perceive it, we can gain efficiency and quality by adhering to it, much like noticing any opportunity or threat that is not immediately visible.

We also must know the nature of those less able to make wise long term decisions. This is why libertarianism is not a solution: when we give liberty to those who will make poor decisions, their resentment only grows when their decisions impact them. Libertarianism would only make sense if genetics were a myth. Libertarians are natural liberals who deny genetics, and deny Darwinism. We should instead have authority over those who are incapable of making wise decisions, and place them in positions where their decisions have less of an impact on society. Without hierarchy, the lower echelons dominate the others, but these levels of society are the least aware, insightful and competent, and so our fortunes fall, where the meaner social climate of Eurasia allows the stronger to dominate the weak.

The West will restore itself by cleansing the bad and restoring good people into positions of absolute authority. To do this democracy needs to be abolished and Leftists need to be exiled to the failing civilizations that are the ultimate end results of their ideas. Groups with recognizable distinctions need to be peaceably separated. We need to seek out leadership types who have minds open to these ideas, and to convince them that these ideas are the best way forward.

This requires us facing full-on what it means to do away with equality. Different groups create different types of order, and different castes within those groups have different degrees of understanding to those ends as well. We must have Monarchs, Dukes, Marqueses, Earls, Viscounts, and Barons composed of our wisest and most competent people. Distinctions where they exist, must be recognized and people sorted according to them, because this is the only way that we can restore beauty, truth and goodness to complement the nature that surrounds us.

Civilization is an order within the greater order that is nature, thus it should also include Darwinism and other important aspects of the natural world. This means we also need to end socialism, which only serves to dumb us down, and make us less capable of providing for our own needs. All people will be placed in positions in society, if there is no position for them, they get to be with nature, or another place that might accept them.

Right now, many on the Right look to Eastern Europe and see that it does not share our problems, and figure that the West should emulate it, or that disaffected Westerners should flee to Eurasia. In reality, this is comparing apples to oranges, and will lead only to failure. The path to our success is clear, and awaits only the time where we summon enough intestinal fortitude to own our problems and make the changes that banish them.

Socialism Must Burn

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

It was gratifying to see that at the recent American Renaissance conference, presenters were looking beyond race alone at all of the failings of modernity, including its dysgenic tendencies.

As Professor Helmuth Nyborg noted, our problem is not just diversity, but government systems that punish the productive in order to reward the unproductive, reversing Darwin:

Prof. Nyborg also noted that unlike the north/south gradient in IQ there is no East/West gradient, virtually proving that it is the challenges of a cold climate that have forced northern peoples to evolve higher intelligence and a greater capacity for cooperation. He pointed out that Arabs have lower-than-expected IQs relative to the latitudes in which they evolved, probably due to the dysgenic effects of frequent cousin marriages.

Two forces could destroy Western Civilization. One is a social system that taxes the competent to subsidize the proliferation of the incompetent. As Prof. Nyborg noted, “The welfare-state debases what created high civilization in the first place. This is the first time in history that the less fit are reproducing more than the more fit.”

At the same time, lower-IQ non-Europeans are pouring into the continent, bringing with them alien practices and religions. Prof. Nyborg concluded with a warning: Unless Europeans are able to reverse these two trends, “the result could be the undoing of the Enlightenment. We may be on the precipice of a new Dark Age.”

Socialism is not just dysfunctional economically; it also destroys people by crushing their hopes by ensuring that all rewards go to those who are not thriving, at the expense of the thriving, in the name of “equality.” If you wonder why Europeans and Americans are not breeding at replacement rates, this is it: socialist-infused societies make life infuriating, unjust and futile.

Nyborg gets some things right, and others seem off-base to me. The Enlightenment™? Why would we want to preserve the movement that legitimized individualism in public discourse, like a bunch of hippies with LEGALIZE HUBRIS as bumper stickers on their Volkswagen buses? Our society is much older than that, and its older values were purer.

In addition, his North-South binary seems off-base. Let us try another binary: there are very few humans who are dedicated to truth and realism, and whatever they do reflects who they are, which is thoughtful and intelligent people. Many if not most of these are the founders of Western Civilization, and they persist today, trying to hold the crowd back from its folly.

Instead of this North-South paradigm, let us be honest: most of humanity is screwing up most of the time because they cannot escape their individual needs, desires and feelings. The few that do, and instead make themselves accept reality as it is, are more effective and end up more prosperous while the rest starve and die in endless revolutions and social chaos.

However, he points out something that the Alt Right denies: we cannot fix existing systems to work in our favor. Anytime there is a socialist program, like any kind of government benefits, people will become domesticated and docile. This is what government as an institution likes; it thrives when it has oblivious sheep to herd around, and fails when it is criticized by people alert enough to do something about it.

Welfare states are entirely derived from the idea of equality, which is a type of utilitarianism that takes only one form: since some are naturally successful and others naturally not successful, it takes something — money, power, status — from those who are succeeding and gives it to those who are failing.

This inverts Darwin. Instead of the most competent succeeding, the incompetent do just as well as the competent, which both drives society to a base level of mediocrity and ensures that future generations will have the genetics of the incompetent. Where nature promotes the good, humanity promotes the weak and penalizes the strong.

All egalitarian systems, including democracy, consumerism, globalism, feminism, socialism and any decisions made on the basis of popularity will enact this anti-Darwinian effect. It is wonderful that people recognize the need for nationalism, but there are other areas where we must remove threats to our people as well.

The Alt Right Needs To Create A Comprehensive Platform For The Future

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017


by Everitt Foster and Brett Stevens

One of the simplest observations that can be made about the AltRight in mid-2017 is that it has to develop more depth to avoid the fate of the libertarians. As I write this there is a bit of a crisis going on regarding the next step for the movement. Simply put, outrage culture isn’t really enough to keep anything in motion for long. The AltRight has since its inception been about explicitly white identity. In terms of policy this has translated into opposition to immigration, legal or illegal, that threatens historically white countries, including the United States.

In the last twelve months we’ve seen success in helping to get Trump elected, but we’ve also failed on the European continent three times. Over the past year we’ve lost Hofer in Austria, Wilders in the Netherlands, and most recently Le Pen in France. What these three loses have in common with our greatest victory is important. Trump was successful primarily because he tied immigration, the most important issue of our time, to jobs and the economy. In all three cases where the right was defeated at the polls we can see that all three candidates favored by the real right were defined as almost cartoon characters. Every time I heard Le Pen speak it was about immigration or her father’s comments and stances from the 1980s. Similar criticism can be and should be understood to be a reason behind the losses of Hofer and Wilders as well.

We are right now running the risk of being defined as a single issue movement, not unlike those who vote based exclusively on a candidate’s position on abortion. In an upcoming article I will address the importance of learning from the American “Know Nothing” party of the 1850s that was defined by opposition to German immigration. Short story version is that they eventually broke as slavery came to the forefront of American consciousness on the eve of the Civil War and were eventually absorbed into the Republican and Democratic parties. To avoid a similar conclusion to the AltRight we must develop a more comprehensive platform that includes tangible, winnable, short term political strategies. In other words, like Trump, the AltRight in America and the Identitarians in Europe must become three dimensional.

***

The opposite of single-issue groups are those with a complete plan for the future, meaning that they tie economy and jobs to more transcendent issues like identity and purpose. In addition, they are able to articulate a vision of the future they desire, the changes necessary to achieve it, and both tangible and intangible benefits for the functional and productive members of society.

Focusing on those functional and productive members of society is essential. These are the people that everyone else tries to emulate because these functional people, by virtue of being functional, tend to be productive and successful. They may not be rich, mainly because most of them want normal jobs and homes so that they can have normal lives, and they value this more than giving their souls to a quest to become wealthy. This is an existential and practical choice; those who do not become entrepreneurs or go into the professions have more time to spend with their families, and this is what most people indicate as more important than excessive financial success. This group of normal but realistic people is the target audience for anyone hoping to achieve political change in the West because this group has always been the backbone of our society, providing the competence that allows our engineering and social feats to be accomplished.

This group is most concerned about having the ability to be prosperous with the least amount of time required. If they want to spend time with their families, they need to have that time free of not just excessive hours at the job, but time spent on red tape or running around looking for new jobs as the economy implodes. This group is sensitive to transcendent issues like “I wish our society had more of an identity and a culture,” but only when these are necessary to and paired with a plan for an efficient economy that will give them more time. If your only plan is to “save the white race,” they are going to look at you cross-eyed unless there is something else in there about making us prosperous and strong.

American and European voters are skeptical of single-issue parties because these tend to be fanatics like the greens, communists or neo-Nazis. To the average voter, this fanaticism means that the person elected will follow the Napoleonic pattern, starting ideological wars and bankrupting the nation. If Hitler or Stalin came back today, they would start by talking about healthcare, jobs, growth and retirement funds.

***

People are frustrated and angered by the immigration crisis in Europe. I don’t have the strength to be outraged anymore. I’ve been outraged by it for years. Reading about the population problems of Europe, and the white race in general, are depressing but I just can’t bring myself to feel anything, anything at all, when I hear of the latest terror attack in Europe. I’m not saying I support “migration” from third world shit-holes to Europe, but rather that I don’t have the energy to feel anger towards the story anymore. I’ve been desensitized.

The salvation of Europe was looking rather impossible. After all, you must participate in your own rescue. The first world must begin to reevaluate their positions on Enlightenment era thinking. We must begin to reevaluate what we believe about democracy, “western values” such as liberalism, universal suffrage, teleological historiography and other ideological factors contributing to the desire of Europeans to not have children.

Then a light bulb went off as I was researching my latest book. Europe from 1300-1350 saw an absolute population decline from the Black Death, and all we got was the Renaissance. I began looking into medieval demographics with a sharper eye. Case in point, Italy in 1300 had a population of around ten million people, by 1350 the population had dipped to its lowest point in over two hundred years with just over seven million inhabitants of the peninsula. By the end of the Renaissance the population of Italy had bounced back to nearly eleven million, and despite the dysgenic effect of brother wars in the modern era, the country has seen a steady increase in population, though with a birth rate of 1.5 this will not be the case much longer. Indeed even with Italy taking in approximately 100,000 “migrants” (Can we just call them invaders now? Please?) the population will continue to shrink.

The gambit that bringing in non-whites to support the collapsing social safety nets established by western European nations in the twentieth century has failed. The incredible lack of productivity on the part of the low IQ Africans arriving daily indicates that they are simply in it for the gibs and not only will they not contribute to the retirement of the baby boomers, but they cannot do it, even if they wanted to.

Thus we can conclude that reduction in the absolute number of individuals in a society is not in and of itself harmful. It only becomes harmful when there is a deliberate attempt to replace the population of Europe through migration. The notion that the boomers will be able to retire in their sixties and live comfortably for thirty years is a farce. There is no salvation for the social welfare systems inspired by the teleological Whig and Marxist historiographies. There will be no “end of history” culminating in a society where each may have according to his need. Socialism is a failed ideology just as was mercantilism.

Immigration is a concern, but it really cannot be our only position. We must learn that the population decline can lead to great things if we are ready to scrap the failed and bloody ideologies of modernity. The AltRight has so much potential to lead the way it is really a white pill. However, this will not come unless we develop depth to our movement. We cannot afford to surround ourselves in the failed “western values” of Voltaire and Madame Guillotine. My greatest concern for us right now is that we will lose momentum, the young kids energized by the AltRight will feel jaded if we do nothing but complain. That’s all I did as a libertarian because that’s what libertarians do. Thirty five years of complaining and acting morally superior to the horseshoe theory of politics got them exactly nowhere, much like White Nationalism 1.0. What I’m saying is that we must become three dimensional if we are to retain these kids before they laps into cuckservatism or liberalism out of frustration with the AltRight.

***

One other thing to keep in mind is that most functional people hate modern society and want an alternative, but they have no idea what “modernity” is. They are accustomed to primitivists who conclude that our problem comes from technology. Your average normal functional person does not want to give up warm showers, modern medicine, or high-efficiency food and goods distribution platforms like large farms and Wal-marts. They may complain about these things, but these things also give them a higher standard of living, so they would never do anything to remove them. The functional people want technology without the disadvantages of the modern time.

What might these disadvantages be? Our first clue is the white people are not reproducing, with many choosing not to have children. This implies both that dealing with society is taking up too much of their time, and that they are existentially depressed. A cynical look at our cities reveals why this is so: the architecture is ugly, every open surface is covered by advertising, and people trudge to jobs with no hope of really being recognized for what they do well. Too much time is spent waiting in lines, filling out forms, shopping around for options to the inept and corrupt, working extra hours to show that you are obedient so you don’t get replaced by an H-1B visa candidate, and paying off the debt for the house that is really too big for you but it’s in a nicer neighborhood and you don’t want your kids to get raped or murdered. We have made a society that punishes its best people in order to pay for its worst, and the functional people are feeling the strain of being slaves to a tax base. Modern society has removed the joy from life.

This leads us to wonder what modern society actually is. If we take technology out of the equation, since technology seems to develop over time in the presence of intelligent people and did so even before the modern era, we see that modernity is a political construct. Relying on The Enlightenment,™ we redesigned our society around the human individual through the doctrine of “equality,” which says that every individual must be part of the group no matter how little they contribute. If you read that critically, it means that everyone shares in the wealth despite having done nothing to increase it, and that the functional people cannot eject the non-functional or assign them a lower social rank so that the bad judgment of these non-functional people does not infect society and make mediocrity and incompetence into “normal” events. When we make people equal and remove social hierarchy, there is nothing left but money to distinguish the sheep from the goats, and so people become money-crazed. This puts normal functional people into the position of defending themselves against the constant onslaught of other people who want what they have, and society works against them by taxing them and redistributing this money to those who are incapable or unwilling to contribute. If we all contribute, we have more time for our families, friends and the important things in life; if only some contribute, they get worked to death to pay for the rest, and stop having many kids because they realize these kids will have the same terrible life that their parents currently do.

If we are going to appeal to people to support radical change, our change must actually make changes that benefit the healthy and normal. One way to do that is to escape modernity entirely by denying the mental virus of equality. This requires us to really think outside of the box because everything we read, see and hear is designed to support the idea of equality as good. However, if we fail to think differently and reject equality, our philosophy becomes a variant of the status quo, and will inevitably return to the same state we are in now. This is why libertarianism and national socialism do not catch on among the normal and functional people. Despite seeming extreme, these ideologies are too close to what we already have, and so no matter how “racist” they are, they will revert back to the same mental befuddlement in which we find ourselves today.

Right now there are a lot of new participants in the Alt Right who like to think they are “edgy.” To them, the point is to be as extreme as possible, not just to open the Overton Window but to push toward a far-right solution like National Socialism. The problems with this are manifold: first, it embraces a system that has failed; second, this system has some attributes that alienate our people, like cruelty and repression; third, it is too much like contemporary European Socialism or the American hybrid system, just with racial exclusivity added. In addition, it assumes that white people want to unite under the banner of generic white, and not to maintain their own complex social structures which include different white ethnic groups, caste and class. But its real fatal flaw is that in preaching to the choir, it picks a smaller group than the audience of functional people to which it needs to appeal. People get this wrong. Twitter just fumbled this one by choosing to appeal to SJWs by censoring right-wing users as “trolls,” and it resulted in an exodus of normal people from Twitter.

With Twitter, we see the age-old truism that conventional wisdom is usually wrong. Whatever most people think is true is probably mostly a lie. The industry analysts told them that it was more important to avoid fears than it was to achieve positive goals like having interesting content. The same is true of the Alt Right. Our fear is of becoming irrelevant, so we tend to support the audience that we already have instead of the audience that we need to have. We need the normies who are also functional and leaders in their community, the type of people that others follow and imitate. Instead, we are appealing to the single-issue National Socialist types who offer no solutions for anyone experienced with European history or even common sense. Just like Twitter, who limited its audience to SJWs by driving everyone else away, the Alt Right will lose audience as it focuses on one group and ignores the bigger picture.

What the Alt Right offers is a chance to escape the entirety of modernity. Our fear with modernity is that it will never change, just churn on and on, getting slightly worse every year but never really crashing because it appeals to the lowest common denominator in all of us, buying us off with entertainment, sex, gadgets and easy jobs. A system like that seems stable, but really is parasitic. The civilization to which it is attached grows weaker by the day while its false elites grow wealthier and its people grow miserable and eventually fade away by not reproducing, then are replaced by the foreigners imported by their leaders to work, be taxed and pay for all those unaffordable social welfare programs.

***

Other than being based on something other than equality, what would a system that escapes modernity look like? We know that it would involve zero socialized medicine and other government benefits because these destroy our people. As Helmut Nyborg expressed recently, socialism is dysgenic and destroying our people:

Two forces could destroy Western Civilization. One is a social system that taxes the competent to subsidize the proliferation of the incompetent. As Prof. Nyborg noted, “The welfare-state debases what created high civilization in the first place. This is the first time in history that the less fit are reproducing more than the more fit.”

The question begins to make sense when we look at modernity as a deviation from what works into an experimental type of society which, because it is emotionally satisfying to most people, crops up again and again throughout history. All great civilizations die by caste revolt, in which the lower castes overthrow the natural elites above them and replace them with fake elites as we have now, and these caste revolts always take the form of people besotted with the mental virus of equality. Our doom is not atypical but tediously typical, and the solution is getting back to the type of civilization that thrives.

A civilization of this nature is motivated by virtue and is strongly nationalistic, meaning that it defines itself in ethnic terms and excludes all others. It also rejects any institutions which turn its citizens against one another such as democracy and equality. As occurs naturally in all populations, it has a caste system where those who are more intelligent and morally competent are given the money and power, and it beats back its own merchants this way. These societies tend to have strong cultural practices and faith, being naturally reverent toward nature and their own history. Right now, this seems impossible, but that is only because we are accepting modernity as necessary.

We can reach our goal in stages, which follow roughly this pattern:

Step 1: Stop the Bleeding

Western Civilization has already fallen.

We are the people who are going to recreate it.

But the first step is to stop the bleeding, which requires swinging culture and politics to the Right. The Alt Right has already done a fantastic job of this, and if it makes itself appealing to the functional people out there, can go much further. We have to recognize however that we face an enemy in the Leftist who will do everything he can to replace us with foreigners so that Leftists remain in power from that point onward. These foreigners will always vote against us.

This means that our first task, above all else, is to execute a “pincer strategy” on those of foreign blood who are among us: one claw of the pincer involves removing the opportunities they find here, and the other requires raising the cost of them being here. Removing opportunities is as simple as revoking the laws — civil rights, affirmative action, and anti-discrimination types — that protect the foreign among us and ensure that they are forced into our economies. Next, it makes sense to remove all of those free government welfare benefits, healthcare, education, housing and legal help. A fever burns out infection by bringing the body into an artificial state of agitation; removing all of the comforts of modern society will drive away opportunists.

In this way, we can build the Great Wall of Trump without laying a brick. The incentives to come here will be gone, and the costs to do so will also have risen, which will cause repatriation of the largest group of foreigners. In addition, without laws that force us to hire, sell homes to, rent to and work with foreign people, society will naturally re-segregate, which means that life for immigrants here will not be markedly better than what they have back home.

Step 2: Right the Ship

Once we are no longer facing a hostile voting population from afar, our task is to starve the beast: Leftists, and the easy employment that they require.

The first step to this is to attack education and media. Education is easily mastered by removing government money from the equation; end the loans, public education, and any roles created by regulation such as “diversity officers” and watch the number of Leftists decrease. Even before we remove public education entirely, which given its utter failure is an excellent idea, we can implement school vouchers and the group that keeps public schools afloat — middle class white kids — will vanish from those schools, causing them to implode into chaos and low test scores. Media requires a more nuanced approach, but the Trump administration has made a good start: restrict access to information, treat them as a hostile power, and encourage them to face the same boycotts that have wrecked the NFL and CNN.

In addition, it is time to start removing laws. Almost all government employees outside of the military are Leftists. Their jobs are created through regulation and other laws which mandate large bureaucracies. When those bureaucracies are no longer needed, all of those Leftists go elsewhere, mainly to working in retail again. Any law we write creates bureaucrats and lawyers in both public sector, to enforce it, and private sector, to avoid that enforcement. Removing both of these dumps Leftists into the jobs market and removes all the abundant free time they use to cause trouble.

A further step might involve the return of freedom of association. If country clubs are no longer forced to accept Leftists, and the nicer neighborhoods can toss them out, then suddenly being a Leftist will not be a zero-risk proposition, but an impediment. Normal people who go along with Leftism will shy away from it. This type of accelerating cultural wave ends in Leftists being marginalized, as a precursor to relocating them to the third world.

Step 3: Long Term Goals

If we want not just to be men in suits with slightly better ideas, but aspire to the Templars, Vikings, Spartans and maybe the vast cultural and philosophical knowledge of ancient times, it requires that we have a long-term goal that involves getting away from the little-man psychology created by systems of government and rights-based law.

When we achieve a Right-leaning culture and through that, political realm, it can be time for more ambitious action: restoring Western Civilization by abolishing democracy and replacing it with an aristocracy.

Our first step would be a Constitutional Amendment that abolishes every amendment since the Bill of Rights and creates a new branch of pseudo-government, the aristocracy, which will be defined as the genetics of its founding members as appointed by a committee of our wisest people. Those can be selected by our military and other noted and respected thinkers, recognizing that these will not come from the current group of false elites.

After that, it becomes time to abolish most if not all of our written laws such as those based on rights, benefits and other “automatic” procedures. From now on, all decisions are made by hand, with someone of intelligence accountable, not a bureaucrat shrugging and pointing to a line in a rulebook.

With that, we can return to the question of culture, now that it is no longer under assault by government, media and academia. The Alt Right fundamentally desires a Nietzschean warrior culture where people have a sense of honor, integrity and principle and are motivated by a deep inner purpose, if nothing else a striving for those goals that can never be fully achieved but the striving toward which improves everything around us: excellence, greatness, goodness, wisdom, virtue.

This type of change of civilization is the only goal that will motivate our people. Democracy with racism will not, and dictatorship will not; people are done with Communism and National Socialism, and with good cause, considering the wreckage they left. We need a future vision that promises prosperity and greatness, not just ideological greatness followed by wreckage.

Naturally the powers that be fear this more than anything else, which is why they scrupulously avoid ever discussing it. We made a wrong turn in 1789 when the West shifted toward democracy, but even before that, we lost a sense of purpose and substituted mercantile concerns for it. Our future consists of peeling back the mistakes, starting over and then aiming for the stars.

The Real Privilege In Amerika Is Helplessness

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

We are held hostage by idiots. Most people are not particularly useful. Some of these are not useful at all, and they know it, and so they demand that we swear upon the graves of our grandmothers that we will pay for their survival, forever and ever, amen. These people reek of detestable entitlement.

What these people want is life without any responsibility. This is not restricted to lower class minorities. Everyone who can think of a new gimmedat thinks they are entitled. If you ask them what their contributions are, they will point to a successful career of inventing new free stuff from government and claim that they “gave” you what you were “owed.”

This stems from the fundamental goal of Marxism. Karl Marx’s bumpersticker quote is “From each according to their abilities. To each according to their needs.” This is getting played out in the West via demotism. It doesn’t take the individual long to figure out what gets rewarded and what gets taxed. Soon these individuals form the crowd and press their needs upon the producers in synonymy. This overwhelms the ability of the state to function in a rational and strategic manner. We can thus get the following surreal results.

Venezuelan resident and Twitter user @KalebPrime first made the discovery July 14 and tweeted at the time that on the Venezuela’s black market — now the most-used method of currency exchange within Venezuela according to NPR — you can get $1 for 8493.97 bolivars. Meanwhile, a “WoW” token, which can be bought for $20 from the in-game auction house, is worth 8385 gold per dollar.

This is what socialism gets you in the end. It only leads to death. President Maduro has all but admitted Venezuelan Socialism has miserably failed. He has held a sham referendum to claim a democratic mandate to rewrite his country’s constitution. Technically, it still exists, but Maduro’s party picks all the members of the body set up to rewrite the document. Constitution Fetishists take note: whether the document is a Magna Carta or a Masta Charga, it only just says what the strong people with guns tells it to. The biggest gang with the guns in Venezuela are the people demanding gimmedats that Venezuela will never be able to deliver.

But this is just Venezuela. Any good Alt Righter will disparage the genetic stock in question and therefore doubt that it’s really socialism at work here. To which I ask them, how about the genetic stock of Connecticut? Here’s what 24/7 Wall Street tells us about Connecticut.

A typical Connecticut household earns $71,346 in a year, considerably higher than the national median income of $55,775. With such high incomes, residents are better able to afford more expensive homes. Connecticut’s median home value of $270,900 is among the highest nationwide. A portion of every state’s population is extremely wealthy, and the share of such high earners is especially large in Connecticut. More than one in 10 households earn $200,000 or more a year. Connecticut’s relatively high education attainment rate partially accounts for the high incomes in the area. More than 38.3% of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree compared to 30.6% nationally.

So how is this working out for them?

Connecticut, the richest state in the nation, has racked up $74 billion in debt. Its finances have more in common with Puerto Rico than Massachusetts, as the home of America’s financial wizards struggles to pay off its massive obligations big as the bills come due on decades of mismanagement.

While ballooning payments for public employees’ guaranteed pension and health benefits for public employees and teachers are the main cause of Connecticut’s fiscal misery, the state continued borrowing with the abandon of a teenager let loose in a Forever 21 with her parent’s credit card. Jobs lost during the recession have not returned. Its youth and future tax base is fleeing for New York and Boston. Fortune 500 companies are following them out of town.

A belief in Marxism’s fundamental tenet will kill any economy. You cannot tax productive innovation and hard work at the expense of privileged helplessness. People learn how to become more and more helpless. People with higher g-loading will just figure this scam out faster. The shaved monkeys are depraved when it comes to doing whatever gets them more bananas and an occasional gold star on the tips of their noses.

It doesn’t matter what people start out as. You can tell me that Connecticutters are way smarter, better and whiter than Venezuelans all day. None of it matters; none of it will make Marxism work. In the end, we are all going where Connecticut and Illinois already are. Connecticut and Illinois will probably go where Venezuela currently is. The real privilege in Amerika is helplessness. This leads to socialism. Socialism leads to death. We all know where it will take us after we are gone.

Utilitarianism Is A Repugnant Conclusion

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Utilitarianism forms the basis of our current society, which is that we do whatever achieves the greatest happiness for the greatest number as they judge it and report. This runs into collision with an ethical argument first put forth in 1984 by Derek Parfit which became (deservedly) known as the repugnant conclusion.

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy explains the failure of utilitarianism in terms of population:

In Derek Parfit’s original formulation the Repugnant Conclusion is stated as follows: “For any possible population of at least ten billion people, all with a very high quality of life, there must be some much larger imaginable population whose existence, if other things are equal, would be better even though its members have lives that are barely worth living” (Parfit 1984). The Repugnant Conclusion highlights a problem in an area of ethics which has become known as population ethics. The last three decades have witnessed an increasing philosophical interest in questions such as “Is it possible to make the world a better place by creating additional happy people?” and “Is there a moral obligation to have children?”

We might view population as the metaphor, and the real question as, “which is better, excellence for a few or mediocrity for many?” In other words, are we aiming for quality or quantity, and if so, are we willing to sacrifice quantity for quality. The idea of utilitarianism is itself entirely quantitative, so we can see where this leads for the utilitarian idea

Parfit’s first and fatal error in attacking this question was to go full-metal Jeremy Bentham. In the proud tradition of scientific socialism, Bentham attempts to put a value metric on happiness. Parfit compounds this wrong further by partaking of the math-nerd version of Spirit Cooking. He uses the Benthamic concept of measuring happiness at the highest population number where H >= 0 for the individual person.

It gets to his choice of ethical systems. Parfit executes a moral decision-making model by using utilitarian ethics: do the greatest good for the greatest number and you will be less wrong. This misses the point entirely. No matter how sophisticated you make it, no matter how many silver-dollar words you describe it with, utilitarian ethics define morality on a basis of what makes the individual person “happy.” Therein lies the rub.

What makes an individual happy depends heavily on what sort individual you’re talking about. In world full of individuals like Trick Daddy, this reduces the epitome of morality to what fills a man’s stomach and stimulates his sex organs.

When I approach this problem, I’m thinking deontologically. As Omar put in on an episode of The Wire, “A man’s gotta have a code.” Rather than cribbing Jeremy Bentham, I would use Isaac Asimov’s methodology instead. Getting the toolbox out and tinkering with Psychohistory from The Foundation series, I came up with a different standard by which we can optimize human population.

Asimov worked as a chemist before his sci-fi blew up and he could earn a living writing articles for Playboy instead. A lynchpin concept in the study of physical chemistry involves a mathematical application of probability theory called statistical mechanics. Statistical mechanics estimates physical (or chemical) behaviors of a substance based upon a distribution of characteristics of individual molecules, atoms or particles contained in the substance. Asimov modified this intellectual framework to plant the theoretical axiom that a historian could start predicting the future history of a civilization based upon characteristics of that entity’s human population.

This leads me not to work towards an optimal population size at all. You don’t reproduce to fill up a cubicle farm. You also don’t cut people off of God’s psychopathic rugby football club just because you run out of jumpers. It’s not the size of the population in question that determines the good. It is the quality. Are these people intelligent? Are they industrious? Do they love their God and love their neighbor? Do they produce or do they mooch? Do they contribute or do they steal? Are they shiny, happy people? Who gives a rat’s rear-end unless they can honestly provide the correct answers to the first five questions?

So how many people do I order the good people to go forth and breed? He doesn’t. The correct question involves how good of a job can you do at g-loading them for war against powers and principalities and then how effectively and diligently are you working at optimizing that potential. Half of being good at mathematics is to know when to stop estimating based on knowledge you cannot yet possess. Sometimes Old-Fashioned Kentucky Windage gets you closer to hitting the target than obsessing over dialing that sight on your weapon with a nail.

So let’s talk reproductive strategy, not numbers. You’ve got two choices: r-strategy or K-strategy. So if you want to flood the zone, and hope that one or two them don’t wind up as casualties, you, like the rabbit or salmonella, choose r-strategy:

Those organisms described as r-strategists typically live in unstable, unpredictable environments. Here the ability to reproduce rapidly (exponentially) is important. Such organisms have high fecundity (glossary) and relatively little investment in any one progeny individual, they are typically weak and subject to predation and the vicissitudes of their environment. The “strategic intent” is to flood the habitat with progeny so that, regardless of predation or mortality, at least some of the progeny will survive to reproduce.

If you want your children to run with the big dogs and not once have to back down from life’s pissed-off grizzly… then breed fewer, breed better, breed K-strategy:

K-strategists, on the other hand occupy more stable environments. They are larger in size and have longer life expectancies. They are stronger or are better protected and generally are more energy efficient. They produce, during their life spans, fewer progeny, but place a greater investment in each. Their reproductive strategy is to grow slowly, live close to the carrying capacity of their habitat and produce a few progeny each with a high probability of survival.

Thus the repugnant conclusion ultimately pollutes the environment rather than solving the problem of how best to populate it. Earth’s K is not purely a function of how many? Ask “How abusive?”, “How needy?”, “How resilient?” and “How anti-fragile?” Essentially, reproduction should be informed more by the Deep Ecology of Arne Naess and not the shallow, mathematically sloppy socialism of Jeremy Bentham. That to me is a conclusion that is far less likely to make the man of intelligence and honor toss his cookies.

The Noise from Illinois Is The Approach of Amerika’s Socialist Death Train

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Amerika may well be approaching that day when it finally boards the Proggy Night Train to the Big Effing Adios. The noise from Illinois over its impending Proggy bankruptcy has the true makings of an unforced Anthropogenic SHTF Event. The typically Keynesian Fiscal Times tells why we should all start rubbing the KY Jelly to grease up the nether eye.

Last week, the state marked the second full year in which Gov. Bruce Rauner and a combative Democratic legislature were unable to agree on a new operating budget. The state Senate the week before rejected a House-passed budget measure premised on a $7 billion revenue shortfall after Rauner threatened to veto it. Unlike city and county governments, states cannot legally declare bankruptcy as a means of shedding debt by forcing creditors, bondholders, and government retirees to absorb some of the loss. The last time a state declared bankruptcy was in 1933, in the throes of the Great Depression, when Arkansas defaulted on its debts. But some legal scholars and government experts have argued in recent years that a well-orchestrated bankruptcy might be a far better solution than a federal or taxpayer bailout, and it would likely protect pension programs and health insurance from draconian cuts.

So stupid state fiscal commitments are like student loans and careless bastard children. They are an unwanted gift that keeps on giving and that you can’t pass on stupid, old Uncle Hank. And just how in the fornication would this well-orchestrated bankruptcy differ from a bailout? I think it would not. Here’s my reasoning.

1) The state has promised a future stream of payments that will become obligations in every fiscal year from now until the horizon promised in The Revelation of St. John. Depict that on any competent MBA student’s cash flow diagram, and you get a nice long line of bars extending below $0.00. To obtain fiscal stability (i.e. afford issuing free shit to the Free Shit Army) you need offsetting revenues that create upward-oriented bars that are as long or longer than the ones going down.* This is a doomed prospect. You ultimately encounter Margaret Thatcher’s Iron Law of Socialism. You eventually run out of other people’s money.

2) The reason we have this constant and inexorable downward suckage on Illinois’ fiscal prospects is that everybody voted themselves free beer. Nobody wants to be stuck doing the brewing, everyone is crowding the bar. The people with money and resources are checking out and hoping it’s not The Hotel California.** The Northwest Herald explains the current moronic socialist death spiral in The Land of Lincoln.

“On the surface, Illinois and Puerto Rico would seem to have next to nothing in common. But in fact there’s quite a lot, especially when you look at the recent dire economic, fiscal and population trends for both,” the June 2 column opens. “Both the Midwestern state and the U.S. island commonwealth are hemorrhaging citizens, with thousands leaving. Perhaps not surprisingly, both also have troubled economies, are deeply in debt and have few prospects for fixing their self-inflicted fiscal problems.”

3) You could make sure The Peoples get all the gimmedats. Declare yourself Governor Santy Claws. How so? Lube up the bondholders and screw ’em all up the pooper. To borrow from the movie Johnny Dangerously, most fiscal entities get to do that once. Just once! And boy would that be a pounding. Jihadis are more gentle with sex when they rape the unbelievers. As Frank Zappa once remarked about prison rape: “Make way for da irawn sawsitch!”

Illinois has $15 billion in unpaid bills, which is over 40 percent what the state collects in revenue annually. It has over $100 billion in unfunded public worker pension obligations. Its bonds have the lowest rating of any state ever. It is one of only a few states, and the only one in the Midwest, that is losing population.

4) You could be Governor No. You could say Illinois Pension Liabilities are only valid up to 25% of the State’s revenues in a given fiscal year.*** What’s that you see outside? A million people yelling “Black Lives Matter!” and trebuchets shooting Greek Fire onto the roof of the Capitol Building? Bummer, Dude!

5) So that leads Illinois to do what it does now. It eats the seed corn and milks the foamy dregs from the empty kegs to continue the Visigoth Holiday in hopes the “Congress will take action!” Until Congress horks someone else’s stash to donate to these bums, here’s what you win if you live in Illinois. So long and thanks for all the asphalt!

Due to the General Assembly’s refusal to pass a balanced budget, the Illinois Department of Transportation loses its ability to pay contractors starting July 1. While we are hopeful the situation is resolved before then, the department is notifying contractors that all construction work is to shut down on June 30. Contractors will be advised to secure work zones to ensure their safety during any potential shutdown. As always, the safety of the traveling public will be the top priority as the department works through this process.

And since that wasn’t an effective enough threat to make Speaker CuckRyan pay for all the socialist bums, they really went looking for ways to get the mobs out on the streets. Drop the Lottery, and you totally engage the man on the street.

The association that runs the popular Powerball lottery and Mega Millions games will drop Illinois at the end of June without a budget agreement. Concern over the state of Illinois’ fiscal condition prompted that decision by the Multi-State Lottery Association, according to internal Illinois Lottery communications.

So Venezuela upon The Great Lakes implodes in spectacular fashion 1 July 2017. But tragically, that won’t happen. Congress will massively intervene. Monies from somewhere (unidentified) will be appropriated. Revenues from somebody (unnamed) will be required. It will be the politics of who-versus-whom. If you are not one of the whos — malignant bums milking a ridiculous pension system — then you are the whom. Ever since Vladimir Lenin introduced that particular concept, the whos were to Stalin what the whoms were to Trotsky. It really sucks being one of the whoms.

This is how human groups die. There are a few who start it out. Then come all the others who want to take a share of the pie. Leaders have no idea what to do with all these people, and they get overwhelmed and overthrown. This is democracy; we always blame the tyrant, but the real fascist-Nazi-communist here is this herd of people. They demand gimmedats from the whoms, who shrink in number each generation, and when the whoms revolt, they replace them with a nu-population of people from low-IQ third world countries where corruption, rape, theft, assault and lying are bred into their DNA.

Eventually the whos and their controllers milk the whoms dry, and then like a bad soufflé the middle of the country falls apart, and you wake up and you are living in Brazil, Iraq, Mexico, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Russia, Argentina, Thailand or any other third world country. That is how third world countries get there: the whos outgrew the whoms and replaced them, so now you have nothing but parasites all the way down.

Eventually the whoms get a wee tad sick of it all. They tire rapidly of taking crap off the Eloi in order to feed the cretinous Morlocks. The patience is growing thinner. The quality of mercy will become quite strained. This will become more prevalent when eleven other states subsequently go the tragic way of Illinois and Puerto Rico. Every last one of the gimmedats adds to the labor burden the taxpayer pays to continue lawful participation in Amerikan Democracy.

Eventually, as the number of gimmedats grows and the allocation base of bill payers shrinks, the math becomes impossible. When the math becomes impossible, so does the continued function of the economy. It crashes. Democracy then becomes, at best, a shooting star with an unmanageable burn rate as it suffers the friction of its encounter with reality.

True Minimum Wage

Friday, May 19th, 2017

It is the considered editorial opinion* at Amerika that work, yea verily, doth suck. It kills the soul and sucks the marrow out its bones. It keeps you in your shaved monkey pen, off the streets and out of trouble for eight to ten hours of the day. It kills time. In the words of The Great Henry David Thoreau; this wounds eternity. Please be friendly and don’t wound eternity.

Another aspect of work is that it is both randomly and deterministically unfair. It is randomly unfair because you can prepare all day long for the interview, the sales pitch or the bigshot briefing and then get railed by the nefarious forces with which Murphy rides to war. The game never ends when your whole world depends on the turn of a friendly card.

Work also sucks because the deck can be deterministically stacked against you. Ask the Asian American High School Valedictorian applying to Harvard what I mean by that. It doesn’t matter how good you are, how hard you work how badly you want it. If you are not the Government’s kind, then you succeeding, you getting ahead, you affording that dream home, or you bringing home the bacon to momma has a disparate impact and must be prevented.

Afterall, no matter how hard you bust that @$$, ¡YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT! The pathetic, envying socialist grubs will never let you enjoy the just rewards of your efforts or achievements. They hate your guts for having that will to power and that drive to succeed.

Do well at work and the ankle-biters will tax you, defame you, steal your ideas and work products and then drive that shiv hard between your vertabrae. The Post-Modern workplace is the vile, hive-infested anus of Amerikan social interaction. Work is where they tell you to do your d@mn job and then secretly fear and detest you if you are better at it than them.

And finally, after all of that, the economic world we live in is governed by unpitying, unbreakable laws that care as much for your existence as gravitation or the natural environment of The Great Plains. You are nothing in the economic world, just as you would be quickly obliterated if you were dumb enough to hike the surface of the moon in your Bermuda Shorts. And if you make like a weedy Dungeons and Dragons nerd and roll to disbelieve it gets worse. Way worse.

In an industry notorious for its “tight margins,” restaurants in San Francisco are closing their doors in record numbers thanks to the minimum wage hike. The minimum wage in San Francisco now stands at $13 per hour for low-skilled workers. Compare that to the $7.25 per hour federal minimum wage, or even the rest of California, which is at a $10.50 per hour minimum wage, and you can already start to see the problem.

There is a simple economic law here. You set your own minimum wage. It is based on your own skills and abilities. If you can’t get it done, they aren’t paying you for nothing. Senator Lieawatha approached it as a social problem and even wasted the time and electrons of the US Senate to ponder why the US Minimum Wage wasn’t $30/hour yet.

She needed to approach it as a sort of statistical mechanics problem instead. Within any given population, different members will have different personal characteristics. These characteristics will determine their suitability to the world of work. This will drive each individual to some minimum wage they are worthy of being hired at.

Artificially setting the minimum wage above the level of any percentage of this population will eventually tend to exclude them from the opportunity to consistently work. The businesses that would have previously hired them will either go under or replace human capital with robots or more efficient processing. At that juncture, the minimum wage for anyone in the working population below that artificial cut line will equal $0.00.

So we should hate the workplace. You are not just a slacker or a Leftard for feeling that way. You should hate war too. Particularly when they use live ammo. Your feelings are totally rational. On to question two: So what?

Let that question marinate in your minds and work towards developing the post-work society. We are going to get there eventually. I recommend we travel a different path to that destination than the one being undertaken in Venezuela or North Korea.
