Politics Under Diversity

Friday, May 19th, 2017

America had several early diversity experiences, but most of them such as Amerinds and Africans were kept under wrap by both de facto and legally mandated segregation. The 1960s took care of the latter, and affirmative action shattered the former.

A more fundamental American diversity experience occurred when Southern/Eastern Europeans joined the previously wholly Western European population. This manifested in a number of changes, including the rise of diversity politics where these groups settled in large numbers.

In particular, cities like Chicago, which had high Irish and Polish populations, showed how groups from outside the West tended toward different systems of self-governance, specifically the strongman model that is common in the third world.

Generally, Southern and Eastern European countries do better with strong leaders and less rule of law or insistence on the lack of corruption that Western Europeans prefer. Consider Italy, Russia and Ireland as contrasted to England during the same time period.

In Chicago and New York, these new immigrant populations created the rise of machine politics:

City government experts point to a political culture that’s been in place for more than 100 years. This culture dates back to the late 19th century, when a gambling-house owner named Michael Cassius McDonald created the city’s first political machine. Under machine-style rule, those in power would hand out contracts, jobs, and social services in exchange for political support.

Chicago’s large immigrant population made it easier for political machines to grow in power. Poor ethnic communities could be played off against one another and manipulated with petty gifts. In exchange for political support, ethnicities would be given virtual fiefdoms within city government; the Irish, for example, were given police work, and the Italians jobs at the transit authority.

Of course, none of this was unique to Chicago. New York City had large immigrant populations and the notorious political machine at Tammany Hall. But machine politics faded away in New York, due in part to external pressure from former New Yorker Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was elected president in 1932.

Did machine politics fade away, or were they simply transformed into the Leftist agenda upon which FDR embarked?

It definitely appears that the Left has assimilated the lessons from machine politics:

Chicago moved towards a one-party system that made it even more vulnerable to corruption: The city’s last Republican mayor left office in 1931. Today, not even the Democratic primaries are competitive—for the most part, once you’re in office, you stay there. The weak campaign finance laws in Illinois probably helped to stave off competition in recent years.

Diversity means that no social standards in common exist, and each ethnic group becomes a special interest group, which means they can be bought off like other special interest groups (minorities, religions, unions, LGBT+, industries, mothers against drunk driving, environmentalists) by giving them monopolies on certain roles.

At that point, the only sin is to violate the rules of the machine itself, which exists solely to further control, a system of power based on uniformity and power as a means-to-an-end of itself. Control necessarily arises from democracy as Plato detailed 2400 years ago.

Notice how similar that is to both the contemporary Leftists in the West and the Soviet Communists.

Apparently, the practice of machine politics is alive and well in Chicago today:

The Chicago Machine relies on unwritten rules to recruit new members and control existing ones. The machine’s unwritten rules are very similar to those of organized crime families and street gangs. Machine recruiters don’t hand new members a manual containing the rules. New machine members learn the organization’s customs and norms through their elders or by trial and error.

The machine relies on peer and social pressure to enforce its rules. The machine does not physically beat or murder those who violate the rules. Nonetheless, the machine metes out punishment including excommunication, loss of jobs, loss of contracts, public humiliation, or inspections that lead to hefty fines and loss of income. People who live in Chicago know why you “don’t fight City Hall.” If you dare challenge City Hall, the machine will apply its unlimited city resources to make you pay.

Machine members will tell you the machine doesn’t exist. It’s in the best interest of the machine to make you believe there is no such thing as a political machine. The machine doesn’t want voters like you to know there is a political organization manipulating your vote. The machine relies on votes from the unsuspecting public to manufacture patronage jobs, political power, campaign contributions, and income for members who make the machine’s candidates invincible at the polls.

When people join the Chicago political machine, they aren’t photographed and issued an identification card. The machine doesn’t require its members to periodically receive an updated identification card that says, “Chicago Machine Member since 2003.” The machine has no official dues, no official articles of incorporation, and no official meetings. The closest the machine gets to anything official is the Cook County and State of Illinois Democratic Party. The machine camouflages itself under the false pretense of a political party that exists to serve the public good.

The machine is strictly business. The machine doesn’t sell drugs or weapons. Its stock and trade is political influence and power. The machine has control of city, county, and state taxes and often uses the money it collects as its own. At the very least, the machine’s elected officials trade government services for campaign contributions, which is why Jay Stone has sought a ban on political contributions from companies and people who do business with the city.

Everything the machine does is designed to get its members reelected so the machine can hold on to its political power and control government jobs and the taxes it collects. The machine is easy to get along with provided you play the machine’s game. If you ask members of the machine for help with problems concerning city, county, or state government, you can have it provided you help enough influential political machine members get what they want.

In other words, independent of the groups involved, the practice of diversity itself leads to thirdworlding, or the transfer of first world states to third world levels of order.

Diversity causes a wide range of negative impacts, but most fundamentally it destroys the identity and shared culture of a society leading to loss of social order and vanishing social trust, leading to civilization collapse.

Our future under diversity is more of the same, except that thanks to FDR, the Chicago/Tammany Hall model has gone nationwide through the proto-Communist Left wing of the United States.

Richard Spencer Broaches “The IQ”

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Most people talking about immigration concern themselves with “assimilation,” or whether new group can be absorbed. Consequentialists ask what the results of doing so will be, since the process of assimilating others means altering the genetics of the original group. Since traits are heritable, this means an elimination of what made the society what it was in the first place.

Recently Richard Spencer, who is both subtle in trolling and insightful at leading with hearts and minds, brought up “The IQ”: the question of whether different European groups can combine into the same nation, given the fact that Europeans split into three general groups — Western, Southern/Irish, and Eastern — which are remarkably different.

Some, including those on Amerika, have pointed out that combining different groups with different clinal trace admixture can result in an increase in extraneous DNA within the combined group, effectively destroying what it is to be “European” by mixing it with traces from Southern (Middle Eastern admixture) and Eastern (Asiatic admixture) which then pile up and drown out the original group.

The Irish, for example, were a favorite target of groups such as American Nativists and the Ku Klux Klan, who pointed out that not only were they Catholic, but they were different, betraying past migrations of middle eastern people through Iberia into Ireland where they mixed with the Neolithic remnants. Different is a matter of degree, but different enough means loss of our founding group.

As America separates into different ethnic groups in the wake of the failure of diversity, the Irish Question raises itself time and again, and implicates other questions of ethnic confusion. The Old Inheritance has more with a warning of how “white diversity” may have caused the liberalization of America:

Clinton Stoddard Burr wrote a book, published in 1922, which is very pertinent today. In the foreword, he indicates just how important he believed the subject he wrote on would be in the near, and more distant future. It seems he was prescient:

[…]In fact it is high time that we should comprehend the primary cause of the loathsome plague of anarchy and Bolshevism. It is time that we should be alive to the fact that most of the hordes of immigrants who have been pouring into the United States from countries of Southern and Eastern Europe, from lands inhabited by races impregnated with radicalism, Bolshevism and anarchy, belong for the most part to the lower strata of humanity from those regions, who prove to be most susceptible to the wiles of the radical agitator. Surely this view, in itself, is a logical plea in advocating restriction of a certain class of immigration.

[…] All thinking people are awakened to the realization that we must choose our future entrants to this country from such as show assimilable qualities of mind as well as favorable physical attributes. The callous exploiters of cheap labor and the incurable sentimentalists stand alone in their misplaced loyalty to our fatuous boast in the past that America was the haven of the down-and-out, the dependent, the oppressed, the pauper, the foreign agitator, the unassimilable and what not.

Western Europeans cluster together because they are genetically similar and thus share the traits that make them aware of certain needs and challenges presented by existence; this is what makes them the reflective people who form the basis of Western Civilization. Introducing other groups will merely destroy the Western Europeans through outbreeding, and lose those shared traits for Western Civilization.

In addition, the white diversity causes new groups to feel alienated from the majority, and thus to partake in the ironist and anti-majority sentiments of Leftism. That, coupled with the resulting loss of social standards, destabilizes the nation and thrusts it into a spiral of infighting over the new agenda.

Personal experience tells me that the vast majority of Irish, Italian, Greek, Slavic and Jewish people in America lean Leftward. There are notable exceptions who are praiseworthy, but they are a relatively small minority. This is likely a consequence of these groups finding themselves in a nation where they almost fit, but not quite fit, and therefore, feel anti-majority sentiments.

A sensible response is to realize that the American Nativists were probably right. Only one ethnic group can exist in a nation; Western Europeans, who cluster together, make up that group in America. When we deviate from that, we go down the path of internal division that ends in our current diversity nightmare and screaming descent into Leftism.

Make America WASP Again

Back in the 1980s, the heavy metal band Slayer wrote perhaps some of the most profound lyrics about the feeling of the time with “Hardening Of The Arteries” from Hell Awaits (1985):

Fear runs wild in the veins of the world
The hate turns the skies jet black
Death is assured in future plans
Why live if there’s nothing there

Spectors of doom await the moment
The mallet is sure and precise
Cover the crypts of all mankind
With cloven hoove begone

[Chorus]
Sadistic minds
Delay the death
Of twisted life
Malicious world

The crippled youth try in dismay
To sabotage the carcass Earth
All new life must perish below
Existence now is futile

Decrepit breath, vile in its stench
A world in decay
Transgressor is as one

[Chorus]

[Lead – King, Hanneman]

Convulsions take the world in hand
Paralysis destroys
Nobody’s out there to save us
Brutal seizure now we die

The point of posting this is not simply that Slayer rules (they do) but that this band nailed a metaphor that most could not express: there was no hope for the future because civilization was obviously moribund.

In 1968, the hippies took over, but in 1965, our immigration laws were changed to favor people from non-European countries. Then again, in the 1930s we had creeping socialism in government, and in the 1920s, an explosion of jazz-fueled flapper vapidity.

The roots of this problem then go very deep, showing us that shortly after the turn of the century, things started to go very wrong down America way. The old America was becoming Amerika, or the new third-world style state.

To find out why, we have to look at the end result: in 1968, the hippies ousted the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) ruling class and replaced it with a new, egalitarian, Leftist one. It took a century for this to happen, and it was most likely the result of the most profound demographic change ever: the 1820s-1880s immigrant wave of non-WASP new citizens.

America was founded by WASPs — WASP is a shorthand for Western Europeans, as they are German-descended for the most part and tend to be Protestant or at least fake it — of the types Scandinavian, Dutch, English, German and Scots. A smattering of others were present but most looked Western European and behaved like them.

Starting with the Irish, new citizens came in droves. They were a cheaper variety of labor for the existing citizens, and as soon as one group got established, it brought over another group to work cheaply for it. The new citizens were of Irish, Slavic, Italian, Greek, and Jewish heritage.

These new citizens experienced the first diversity clash: having left their home countries and come to a new one, they felt like failures, because they had to leave home for a reason and they were now of lower rank. They channeled this feeling into a scapegoating of the majority, who they saw as discriminating against them, and couched this revenge sentiment as class warfare when in fact it was a diversity conflict.

As soon as they gained political power, they began re-making society in the image of their origin nations because they had to keep up the fiction that asserted the opposite of reality: it was not that the old countries failed them, but that the old countries were better, and this new country needed enlightenment.

This is the same formula that non-white populations use today, because psychologically, it is the only game they can play. They either have to repudiate their origins, or must find a reason that the new country is bad. If you wonder why diversity is fatal no matter how nice or smart the groups are, here is the reason.

The governments and institutions created by these new groups were overwhelmingly Leftist because that was the type of order familiar to them from their home countries: strong warlords, class warfare, individualist philosophy and anarchic social order.

In the race for civilization attainment that is history, these Eastern/Southern/Mediterranean Europeans came from the loser states and not the winners, as in the West. The lower a population is, the more Leftist it votes, because Leftism is the philosophy of decay and compensatory behavior that amounts to neurosis and altruism.

It took these groups several generations to gain power, but when they finally did — after the interruptions of the World Wars — they offed the WASP establishment in the 1960s.

For those who want to fix America, a good place to start is to separate the population. Your ancestors were either Western European, or you belong elsewhere. This is not because you are bad — it would be hard to argue that Italians, for example, are bad — but that diversity does not work.

The only way to save America, and Europe, is to undo diversity and send those who do not fit the founding population profile back to their homelands. While this is taboo today, it is losing that edge, because as diversity falls, and class warfare/Leftism implodes, it becomes clear that white diversity will fall as well.

Much as it makes sense to repatriate Africans, Asians and mixed-race people to their homelands, it makes sense to repatriate whites who are of these non-Western European populations. This will revitalize their home countries with new talent and knowledge, as well as fix the flagging populations in those countries.

In turn, America and Europe can achieve homogeneity of population and therefore restore culture, doing away with the need for government and endless increasing police power. Everyone wins. But we must first overcome our pretense of caste, class and ethnic equality, starting among white people.
