The reaction by social media and big media alike to the Hunter Biden sex and bribes scandal — mainly refusing to allow it on their platforms — has prompted a greater reaction than the scandal itself.
Suddenly, all those warnings about winning this election or the country gets taken over by a cadre of diehard Communist useful idiots seem very real. They are pathological, they do not care about factual accuracy, and they want power at any cost.
If given that power, they will ensure that they keep it. Forever.
That is, forever until they go down the path of France, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela, Cambodia, and California, namely becoming third world kleptocracies who never rise to any significance again.
Few want to say it, because it is ugly, but when dealing with unions or Leftists, you are dealing with a thin interface to organized crime. These are the people who demand kickbacks, protection money, and that you buy adulterated concrete or face a labor walkoff.
People are slowly seeing that not just the Bidens, but the Clintons, Obamas, Big Tech, the FBI, Big Media, Chinese Communist Party, and the Democratic Party are all pieces of this organized crime conspiracy.
Democracies tend to go out this way, as you remember from both history and philosophy classes. The problem with democracy is not so much at the macro level, where it rules badly, but at the micro level, where it turns people into narcissists who obsessively pursue pleasures in order to distract themselves from the yawning emptiness within. Democracy replaces people with zombies.
At the point where a democracy reaches its final stages, the tyrants are ready to act. These people tend to be megalomaniacs, or narcissists so advanced that they use everyone and everything around them as a means to their own glorification. They will preach altruism while robbing the country blind, knowing that they can fool the left half of the Bell Curve by promising free stuff, peace, love, compassion, tolerance, inclusion… whatever.
What they do not realize is that they have run out of time.
Starting in 1945, we entered a new world. Fascism and nationalism were defeated, so the theory went, we could live in a new world of pluralism, or tolerating those unlike ourselves for the mutual purpose of having a peaceful, prosperous society.
The Leftists promised us a Utopia where the problems of the past, from monarchism onward, would not afflict us. They said that our crisis began because some had more than others, so they would equally distribute power and wealth, ensuring that no one had cause for conflict. They said that racism and hierarchy were problems, so they would make everyone equal, even between races. They believed that women needed equalizing too, and soon everyone would be liberated to pursue their interests as best they could.
Spoiler: it all failed.
It turns out that the more equality you have, the more you work to support it while others do nothing. Equality between the sexes means conflict between the sexes for power. Similarly, equality between races and ethnic groups means that each group competes with the others to conquer and rule our civilization. And pluralism, instead of bringing peace, made us have to constantly fight others to maintain the standards that we want. As George Orwell, that canny old socialist, inverse-projected in his book 1984, “War is Peace” which means pacifism makes war.
By the 1970s, things had gotten pretty ugly in the West, since the 1960s reforms had rocketed us halfway to Communism. We had entitlements, diversity, sexual liberation, and total control through an ideological central committee and the journalists, academics, writers, artists, and entertainers who echoed its talking points as if commanded. It seemed as if Communism would win and then, thanks to a conservative revolution with Ronald Reagan, who basically softened the Goldwater-Nixon approach with diplomacy, the West came surging back. Facing this onslaught of new hope and confidence, the Soviets self-destructed and collapsed.
After that, however, the Left realized that they had no limits. The upper boundary of Communism no longer existed, so they could endorse Communism not just to resist Reaganism as was popular in the 1980s, but as a way of solidifying a new audience. They found this audience in the Hart-Celler “nü-Americans” who came in to the country in massive numbers under the Clinton administration. Even though Clinton was a cautious Leftist, he still made enough changes that by the time his term was over, the country was healthy on the surface but deeply sick underneath that layer in terms of economics, social strife, and bureaucratic overload.
The voters, at this point panicked, raced back to the Right with George W. Bush. In his first term, he served ably as a conservative; his second term went off the rails, with him favoring not just an occupation war but leaning increasingly Left on social issues. Tired of endless conflict, Americans returned to the Clinton plan with the Clinton candidate, Barack Obama, who almost certainly received Chinese money just as Bill Clinton had.
At the end of the Obama administration, it was clear that a foreign occupying power had taken over America. Jobs were scarce, no one had much money, taxes were high, regulations were eating up industries, SJWs rampaged across the internet, cancel culture destroyed lives, race riots burned cities, and yet the media downplayed all of this and claimed the economy was good and we were moving with inexorable progress — the “arc of history” — toward some sort of Utopian state. At that point, the public narrative entirely disconnected from what we knew in private, prompting a Silent Majority revolt in Britain (Farage), the US (Trump), Hungary (Orban), Poland (Law and Justice), and France (Le Pen).
These acknowledge the simple truth: Leftism had not achieved what it promised despite having almost a century to do so. In fact, it had created the opposite: a society draining itself to fund socialist-style entitlements, much as the Soviets had self-destructed, ruled by civil rights and racial conflict, in which sexual liberation and diversity had destroyed social trust and in fact, culture itself, leaving a consumerist wasteland in which we were all economic units working at doing nothing of importance just to keep the taxes flowing.
Even more, we saw that when Obama and Clinton talked about “fundamental transformation” of America, they meant turning everyone into a zombie, without family, culture, heritage, social class, or religious faith. They intended to replace the founding ethnic group of Americans, the WASPs, with third world foreigners who would vote Leftist forever. They were very close to their goal, needing only another ten or twenty million immigrants to close the gap.
If you wonder why not just the Right, but moderates, are taking this election so seriously, the answer can be found in avoiding that fundamental transformation. With fundamental transformation, we will have no future choices; without it, we can enjoy the remnants of 1980s America — the last really good time that we remember — and opt to choose our future, rather than be sucked into the vortex of ever-accelerating Leftism which now suspiciously resembles multiracial Communism.
Had the Left run a decent campaign, and not engaged in constant rioting, vote fraud, intimidation, deception, and censorship of news stories like the Hunter Biden laptop of horrors, they might have had a chance. Instead they fought dirty like a wounded animal that knows it will ultimately lose, since they recognize that the organized crime scam that they have been running on America for decades — with help from China — has finally been let out into the light, and people are defecting from having belief, hope, and faith in anything that the Left does, and consequently, in Leftism itself.
The laptop of horrors reveals other things that we can understand through inference, none of them good.
First, Leftists are acting with impunity because the IRS, FBI, and DOJ seem to have been giving them a complete pass for years. The failure of the government to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her 30k missing emails, the death of Seth Rich, and other scandals now makes sense; Obamagate, which was the spying on candidate Trump by the Obama administration, was guaranteed not to raise eyebrows because the entrenched Leftist bureaucracy (“deep state”) was actively involved. Similarly, people in Washington giving the time of day to the dubious Steele dossier and impeaching Trump on the basis of that and other manufactured accusations about Russia makes sense. They were not acting as agents of government, but as agents of the Left. Hunter Biden behaves like the son of a mayor in a small town, confident that no matter what he does, he will not be caught. If he is caught, assistants and lawyers will sweep in and clean up.
Second, Leftists are entirely OK with entirely dubious behavior by those in their inner circle, including smoking crack and potentially, pedophilia. This was not the first time that someone caught Hunter smoking crack. Nor does it seems like the Leftist Washington power brokers, who seemed entirely comfortable with Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton, had an aversion to sex with underage temporary partners. This reminds us of the dying days of Rome, when privileged but doomed elites engaged in depravity simply to feel the thrill of their power, which tells us that they did not believe that power was that secure. They were projecting, as people tend to do, trying to convince themselves with external means of what they should have known internally but could not. Any leader who has to demonstrate his power is not certain of it; he is trying to convince himself, and possibly others, but he knows his rule is tenuous. Add in some “Spirit Cooking” and other celebrations of darkness, fatalism, and amorality, and you can see how these people were on a massive power trip.
Third, Joe Biden is a narcissist. You do not end up with kids like Hunter Biden — “brats” — unless you both spoil your children and micromanage them, essentially telling them that they are not individuals, but extensions of you, and will never have a life apart from you. Narcissism occurs when the individual views the world as extensions of himself, not a reality that encloses him with rules according to which he must behave. Joe Biden demonstrates the classic megalomania of a narcissist through his pursuit of personal wealth at the expense of his family, treating them like props or accessories to serve his career. Like Nancy Pelosi and others, he remains in government because he depends on government and has no other cause to exist besides the pursuit of power and wealth. If that was your father, you might smoke crack too.
Perhaps these things spell bad portents for the Biden campaign. They indicate negative things for Biden supporters more than anything else, since these people have finally identified themselves as ideological fanatics who pursue a symbolic or social goal with a high cost real-world negative consequences and collateral damage. Socialization uses the same framework that our own minds do, and lets us treat others as extensions of ourselves, thus can quickly become narcissistic. Those who view social power as more important than good results in reality are using all of us and our futures as means to their own ends, which makes them sociopaths or tyrants, depending on which vocabulary you prefer.
The most recent debate showed the Joe Biden story in full: Biden debated like a high school sophomore, focusing on appearance and emotion more than tracking to the core of the issue, while America’s Dad in the form of Donald Trump patiently explained the complexity of issues and how they were being addressed. Trump was not debating, but Biden was debating badly; if you flow chart his responses, he ducked major issues and deflected into generalized talking points, leading to insubstantial answers. This further alienated middle America from him, since they were seeing a picture form in which the ideologues prized him for his loyalty to a Utopian symbolic vision, and no one on their side seemed to care about whether it would work or not, which is consistent with both the Soviet experience and the past century of Leftism in America.
We have a chance for something better coming our way. Things are changing very rapidly as people lose faith in modernity, including its core, which is the ideal of egalitarianism. We are tired of chasing symbols and now want function, but most of all we want normal lives. The 1980s were better because the people around us were like us, and we could easily have careers without working too many hours to pay taxes that went to other groups in the diversitocracy. We might even dial it back to the 1950s, before there were any of those 1960s obligations, and let society be heritage America living well and focused on normal, humble life instead of living in order to work, pay taxes, support the “correct” ideology, and buy endless products to fill the widening void in our souls.
In our way we see a “new old” order and its narrative, wanting to control us by limiting the methods of living that we use, and seeking to use us in order to achieve its unrealistic and quite frankly juvenile ends. You do not get peace through equality, pacifism, compromise, and socialism; you get peace through stable, healthy, and sane people living normal, humble, productive, and functional lives. That the Establishment seeks to suppress us, and both Big Tech and Big Media censor us, just confirms how desperate they are. The arc of history bends, but not in the way they think it does.
That’s probably enough for tonight. Vote Republican, knowing that if we win, we are going to have to get just as harsh as we are on the Left today on the Right, purging the neocons and cucks just as we filter out the insane wehraboos and religious fanatics. We need a reality-focused future, and populism offers that through its combination of nationalism, traditionalism, and Austrian economics. That in turn gives us a platform to escape modernity and get back to real life and a connection to nature and the divine. God(s) bless you all, and good luck.
