If the Left is ever going to come together to save the world from Donald Trump and his legions of fascistic Putin-Nazis, we’re going to need to confront our primary enemy … the international working classes. Yes, my comrades, I’m afraid it’s time to face the facts, depressing as they are. The working classes are not our friends. Just look at how they’ve been betraying us … and after all we’ve done for them all these years! This cannot be allowed to continue, not if we are going to rescue democracy from Trump, Putin, Assad, the Iranians, and Palestinian kids with terrorist kites, and eventually stem the blood-dimmed tide of neo-fascist anti-Globalism!

Now, OK, I know you’re probably asking, “how can the international working classes possibly be the enemy of the Left?” and “wouldn’t that render the whole concept of the Left completely absurd and essentially meaningless?” and other pertinent questions like that. And that’s totally fine, you’re allowed to ask that. Questioning aspects of the official narrative the ruling classes are forcing everyone to conform to like members of a worldwide cult doesn’t make you a Nazi or anything. It’s perfectly OK to ask such questions, as long as you don’t continue to ask them, over and over, and over again, after the facts have been explained to you. Here are those facts, one more time.

The international working classes are racists. They are misogynists. Xenophobic transphobes. They do not think the way we want them to. Some of them actually still believe in God. They are white supremacists. Anti-Semites. Gun-toting, Confederate-flag-flying rednecks. Most of them have never even heard of terms like “intersectionality,” “TERF,” and so on. They do not respect the corporate media. They think that news sources like the Washington Post, The New York Times, The Guardian, CNN, MSNBC, BBC, and so on, are basically propaganda outlets for the global corporations and oligarchs who own them, and thus are essentially no different from FOX, whose pundits they believe every word of. Their minds are so twisted by racism and xenophobia that they can’t understand how global capitalism, the graduated phase-out of national sovereignty, the privatization of virtually everything, the debt-enslavement of nearly everyone, and the replacement of their so-called “cultures” with an ubiquitous, smiley-faced, gender-neutral, non-oppressive, corporate-friendly, Disney simulation of culture are actually wonderfully progressive steps forward on the road to a more peaceful, less offensive world.

Now this has been proved in numerous studies with all kinds of charts and graphs and so on. And not only by the corporate statisticians, and the corporate media, and liberal think tanks. Why, just this week, Mehdi Hasan, in an exasperated jeremiad in the pages of The Intercept, that bastion of fearless, adversarial journalism owned by billionaire Pierre Omidyar, proved, once again, that Donald Trump was elected because PEOPLE ARE GODDAMN RACISTS!

Apparently, Hasan has just about had it with these Putin-loving Trump-apologists proposing that general dissatisfaction with global capitalism, neoliberalism, and identity politics could have had anything to do with Americans electing a bombastic ass clown with absolutely no political experience to the highest office in the land. Hasan cites a number of expert studies, among them one by the Democracy Fund, which just happens to be another Omidyar outfit. But let’s not get all paranoid or anything. There are literally hundreds of such studies at this point, each and every one of which has been cited by the mainstream media, the alternative media, the far-alternative media, and virtually every Trump-obsessed loon with a blog or a Facebook or Twitter account.

Look, I realize the truth is painful, but the science of statistics leaves no room for doubt. As much as some of us may want to deny it, the fact is, the country that elected Barack Obama (who is Black) president, twice, has been transformed by Putin’s brainwashing agents into a cesspool of xenophobia and racism, and it is up to us lefties to set things right!

Now, to do this, we need to unite the Left, and get everyone marching in lockstep, and so on. Which means that we need to identify and weed out all the fake leftists among us. Then, and only then (i.e., after we’ve tracked down, sanctimoniously denounced, and exiled any and all neo-Stasserist “alt-Right” infiltrators, Sputnik leftists, and Assad-apologists), can we turn our attention to meeting face-to-face with the international working classes and sanctimoniously denouncing them as a bunch of filthy racists.

OK, that sounds a little harsh, and possibly totally idiotic, but what other choice do we really have? If we’re going to defeat these Putin-Nazis, a few eggs are going to have to get broken. This is not the time to abandon our commitment to imposing our identity-based ideology on every last person on the planet Earth, or to indulge in that ugly kind of old-fashioned leftism that is based on what the working classes want. Who gives a damn what the working classes want? What’s important is what we want them to want. This isn’t the 1990s, after all. All that nonsense about globalization, and supranational entities like the WTO, and the World Bank, not to mention “American jobs” … only fascists talk like that these days!

But, seriously … if you’ve made it this far in my essay, and you consider yourself a leftist of some sort, you’re probably extremely frustrated with what passes for the Left these days, and with how the working classes are flocking to the Right, both in the United States and all over the world. If I’ve got that right, you might want to read this essay by Diana Johnstone (which we lefties are technically not allowed to read, because it’s posted in The Unz Review, where a lot of “alt-Right” pieces are also posted … and you don’t want to get any of that stuff on you!)

What she is writing about is the ongoing “populist” insurgency against globalized capitalism, which is what I’ve also been writing about for the better part of the last two years. This is the historical moment we are experiencing, a clumsy, sloppy, partly fascistic, partly non-fascistic democratic uprising against the continuing spread of global capitalism, the erosion of what is left of national sovereignty, and … yes, people’s cultures and values.

The international working classes understand this. The neo-nationalist Right understands this. The majority of the Left does not understand this, and is refusing to admit that it’s happening, and so is standing around on the sidelines calling everybody “racists” and “fascists” while the global capitalist ruling classes and the neo-nationalists sort things out.

Which is exactly what the ruling classes want, and what the official Putin-Nazi narrative was designed to achieve from the very beginning. The “Overton Window” (i.e., the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse) works best when divided into two clean halves. During the so-called “War on Terror,” it was Democracy versus the Islamic Terrorists. Now, it’s Democracy versus the Putin-Nazis. Both of which narratives are fairy tales, of course, the reality, as ever, being rather more messy.

If what is left of the Left expects to play any meaningful part in our historical moment (other than sanctimoniously cheerleading for the global capitalist ruling classes), it is going need to get its hand a littler dirtier, mingle a bit more with all those working class “populists,” talk to them, and, I don’t know, maybe even listen to them.

Or maybe I’m completely out of my mind … I mean, actually listening to the working classes? Some of them are sure to say racist things, and anti-Semitic and transphobic things, which we cannot ignore for even one second, or rationally discuss and disagree with, because that would mean giving their racism a platform. Yeah, screw it, I don’t know what I was thinking … forget all that stuff I just made you read. Down with the fascist working classes!

  1. I can’t say that the working classes are without fault, but our problems stem from the upper classes. Neolibreral policies turn over important decisions to the market.

    The US doesn’t need an industrial policy the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need an immigration policy the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need an energy policy the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need an ecological policy the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need an infrastructure policy the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need an internet policy the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need to regulate Wall Street the market will take care of that.

    The US doesn’t need to break up monopolies will take care of that.

    And so on.

    Markets über alles.

    The left has experienced this “historical moment” before: around 1930, when global capitalism 1.0 collapsed. Now global capitalism 2.0 is collapsing, and the left is scared sh*tless. After all, last time around, in countries like Italy and Germany, the fascists and national socialists beat the communists handily, and then proceeded to quickly eliminate unemployment. The working classes loved Hitler and Mussolini–and the leftists never forgave them for that. Hatred of the working class from the left was a trademark of the so-called Frankfurt School Marxists; this has marked the left in the West ever since.

  5. The far left (not the Hillary “left”) isn’t entirely dead. Bernie could have won if he had a sensible America-first position on immigration (which he used to have). Amazing that the left has allowed the right to plunder that issue from them. Now they just mouth Koch Brothers platitudes. If they get right with immigration the rest of their platform (antiwar, single payer, free state college) is quite palatable to most.

    This excellent point is another reason the left ‘on the street’ is exploding their own heads at the mention of Trump; with his stance against globalism, he’s grossly defiled the internal purity test they used to have. He stole their own precious issue and ran with it to the cheers of the great deplorables.

    Markets above all?

    Since ‘the market’ is a concept summarizing people’s long-term free choices while respecting the property of others, and especially their taking personal action in ending far-left (and -right) totalitarian coercive regulations, especially when catalyzed by the modern libertarians, then–hell yeah.

    Consider:

    The US doesn’t need an industrial policy the market will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 has created a worldwide stock and invention boom.

    The US doesn’t need an immigration policy the market will take care of that.
    >>Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 brought down the great immigration barrier of the Iron Curtain and calls for spread of the US Bill of Rights to stabilize all nations.

    The US doesn’t need an energy policy the market will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 has circumvented predicted energy shortages and is giving us cheaper eco-energy than ever.

    The US doesn’t need an ecological policy the market will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 brought attention to governments as the main polluters, reduced socialist spoilage of the ecology, and raised Green awareness.

    The US doesn’t need an infrastructure policy the market will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 removed the major blocks to forming the key infrastructure changes of today: the internet and private space colonization.

    The US doesn’t need an internet policy the market will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 removed the legal blocks and made the internet possible. We should return power to the far-left monopolist clowns?

    The US doesn’t need to regulate Wall Street the market will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 has raised the Dow 26 times and brought freer market democracy to every country.

    The US doesn’t need to break up monopolies will take care of that.
    >Growing Libertarian deregulation since 1969 has removed the far-left monopolies on transport, mail, books, etc. and more reducing costs while improving choices by a factor of 9X or more.We should return power to the far-left monopolist clowns ?

    Monopoly/oligopolies are the result of government regulations imposed generally by the ‘socialist’ far-left. Time to get rid of these strangleholds in academia, K-12 schooling, etc.–not give them more power.

    ” Bernie could have won if he had a sensible America-first position on immigration (which he used to have)”

    My understanding is immigration control was Sanders’ position throughout and still is. He specifically derides any attempt to loosen immigration as driven by Koch Brother insanity.

    The left is for immigration control, not a sensible libertarian open policy. They equate open borders with invasion– and the right is stupid enough to fall for it, just taking the other side.

    Had Bernie been nominated, Gary Johnson would have made his campaign about Sanders’ deodorant socialist fascism. Bernie wouldn’t have one, and Johnson may have done even better than he did.

  11. One of the problems is the divide between the bourgeois middle-class (like myself, middle-class and suburban) and the white working class lumpenprole.

    We see some of this on the blog. The state college-educated white-collar small-time Bourgeois like myself who have traveled and lived overseas cannot help but hold the lumpen “son of the soil” personified these days by the out-of-his mind meth head Oxy-addict in the sticks who has a GED and three kids by the age of 25 and is a whigger in complete and total contempt.

    Whereas blacks will display solidarity and even Hispanics as disparate as Cuban whites and pure Aztec Mexicans will also show solidarity the white rural/urban, prole/Bourgeois, Southern/Northern ethnic divide is Grand Canyon-wide.

    Posters can sense that when they read my responses to the townies, rubes, hicks etc. on this blog commentary.

    There is even a sub-ethnic bigotry at work because Sanders is a Jew and most of the Bourgeois are Northern ethnic whites while the real lumpen are derived from Old Colonial rural Southern or Podunk interior Anglo-Celtic stock.

    In actual fact, we’re less than four months to the real founding of the current regime. As is some twisted genius had a game plan that only took a few centuries to kick in.

    The deplorables never had a chance.

    In 1619 a brilliant strategy was implemented by what was then sparsely-populated shoreline colonies in both parts of North America and (most massively) in South America. African slaves would, in due course, flummox any chance of the sort of worker’s movements that dominated the early and mid Industrial Age elsewhere, as in parts of Europe and Britain.

    Bisecting the working classes by slave/free (each category subject to wild misinterpretation) guarenteed the American working class would be more likely to antagonize each other than get together and compare notes as to what the Bosses were up to.

    And when slavery ended chaos began. American unions, totally mocked by homogenous Europeans who had blood ties behind their union cards, were boycotted by blacks who knew Northern Unions were totally segregated and skewed to favor family members of European stock. Never mentioned in the histories of the 60s riots, it was the main driver of the conflicts.

    But it’s the 21st Century and that’s just old news. Disagree, anyone? Consider:

    Five to seven percent of Americans owned slaves back when it was legal. Right now, five to seven percent of Americans live on the portfolios of outsourced-to-third-world labor.

    That’s another thing that’s so weird about antifa: twenty years ago, when they still called themselves the ‘Black Bloc’, they were the ones out protesting globalization. Does anybody else remember the ‘Battle of Seattle’ in 1999, when they were protesting the WTO? I do. Back then, they were actually fighting the system; now they just fight there fellow citizens for the system. Don’t they realize what tools they are? Have they forgotten their own damn history?

    It’s no surprise to me that the system can make us all forget what happened, say, a hundred years ago. After all, very few of us were even alive back then. But the fact that they seem able to make so many forget what happened just ten or twenty years ago–in our own lifetimes!–is truly astounding. It’s just like Orwell’s ‘memory-holing’. Amazing …

    It’s not so much that the left allowed the issue to be plundered, the Establishment right was pushing for more and more illegal immigration and amnesty as well. The traditional American population was sold out by both sides.

    On the right it was the big money donors pushing for cheap foreign labor. On the left they know that demographic transformation will make the federal government a single-party state. They don’t know it will only last for a generation or two before the left fractures into the little balkanized grievance mongering cliques that make up its constituent parts.

    The left is for immigration control?? Do you have evidence of this? They talk amnesty incessantly but perhaps the fact they never get anything done is proof of your claim. They could have done it in BO’s first two years but they were too busy crafting a horrible health care bill. But no, the left is not for immigration control.

    I don’t see how the right is stupidly falling for anything. Parts of this statement are incoherent.

    Again, I shout to the highest heavens: Nobel Prize for CJ Hopkins.

    Of course, none of this is new. We are in one of the peak eras, one of the more absurdist eras of the pattern, but the nature of Leftism is to wage culture war because of abiding hatred – defining hatred – for peoples the Left sees as backward because they remain conservative in Christian and/or moral and/or cultural terms. The True Believing Leftist knows with every fiber of his/her/its/their/zes being that if not for the uneducated white working class racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic trash, the world would flower into paradise. And it is the height of GOOD to destroy everything that allows the retrograde white trash working class to oppose Leftism, which selflessly is working to give us egalitarian paradise in which all cultures are tolerated, respected, and people do not bow to Mammon

    So what if to reach the Leftist egalitarian paradise you have to make deals with countless multi-billionaires that seem to keep making them richer every quarter of every year? You are acting to exterminate the pure evil of the memories of Robert E. Lee and medieval Catholic knights and the hate-filled, low IQ, racist, poor white trash that worships them and in their names would enslave the entire world.

  20. Jake says:
    @Franz

    You almost have it nailed. But what you have wrong is the heart of the matter. Slave owning meant nothing. Most slave owners had 3 or 4 up to 7 or 8 slaves, perhaps half of them at any given time children. The slave owner often lived a life that was, in our terms, far closer to poor farmer working 12 or more hours per day, 7 days per week, than to upper middle class comfort.

    In any economic endeavor, it is the shippers who get the richest. In the food world world, it is not the farmers and not the grocery store employees to who get filthy rich. It is the shippers who get filthy rich and become millionaires and then even richer. The shippers come to own almost the entire process.

    The people who got rich from slavery in the US were the slave shippers, who moved cheap labor around the globe to make themselves the richest of the rich for the time.

    Take that obvious thought to today: Globalists today move entire populations around the world not for the good of the peoples moved, an not for the good of the working classes of the lands where the other peoples are moved, but to add to their already perverse wealth and power.

    Today’s globalists are not equivalent to some Virginia slave owning farmer in 1800 or 1860 but to the filthy rich, and genocidally self-righteous, Yankee Wall Street banker/investor whose family wealth was built at least significantly upon cross-Atlantic slave shipping. And in 1860 and after, he claimed to love the poor innocent Negro, which love required him to despoil ‘bad whites’ to help the beloved Negro.

    So in the West they use bioleninism instead of bolshevik leninism.

    From

    https://bloodyshovel.wordpress.com/2018/01/21/leninism-and-bioleninism/

    “The point about Leninism is that after absolute power is achieved, the leftist ratchet stops. The country stops moving left. No new ideas. No new catering to low-status people and using them to topple the government. No, none of that. The ever advancing leftist movement was just a means to an end. The end was power. Once power is achieved, leftism dissolves. It doesn’t disappear; it leaves some residue, in that states always try to have ideological consistency with what they said during their founding. Chinese dynasties framed that as filial piety of emperors following the ideas of grandpa the founder; but it’s mostly just inertia.

    This is not how things turned out in Western Europe and North America. No leftist party as such ever achieved absolute power in the West. It just didn’t happen. And not for lack of trying. But it didn’t pan out. As for why, well there’s my theory back then. Countries which developed capitalism slowly tended to produce less resentful losers than agrarian empires who were thrown suddenly into modernity. That’s not quite my original theory, I’ve read it somewhere else, maybe someone can remind me who first said it. At any rate the success of Leninism in Russia and China has plenty of chance in it. Lenin could very easily not have taken power, he could have lost the civil war, he could have not had that precious Wall Street Jewish money to keep him afloat. No Soviet Russia, no Communist China either. But anyway, it did happen, and socialism was very strong in those places with or without actual takeover.

    So what happened in the West, anyway? There’s one guy who thought about it very deeply. For a long, long time. Mostly because he was in jail so he had plenty of time to study the problem. I’m talking about Antonio Gramsci. He was a communist agitator in Italy who got caught by Mussolini, and was sentenced to rot in prison. ”

    …snip….

    “His idea, which was hugely influential, and for good reason, was that the power structure wanted to keep being the power structure and you couldn’t just throw it away and replace it with your boys. You can try your chance in electoral politics, but there’s only so many resentful fucks who are willing to vote for the abolition of the very foundation of social life (property), at least in moderately prosperous Western countries. In these kind of places, if you want to take absolute power, you have to colonize the power structure very slowly. You have to influence their minds. You have to change the culture. This sounds very esoteric and spiritual but it’s not. Basically Gramsci argues that you gotta grab the press and the education system, and slowly but steadily do in every institution with some power what you do in a political party. Political parties work by hiring loyal people by preying on their low-status. Well, find a way into HR of every school, every newspaper, every government department, every judicial board. And to the very same thing. Run a distributed covert Leninist party. Until you run everything.”

    …snip….

    “Because there’s always biology. Some people are tall, some people are short. Some look good, some are pretty ugly. Some are thin and some are fat. Some are pleasant some are annoying. Some are cool and some are awkward. Some are smart and some are dumb. Some make good choices some make bad choices. Some are law-abiding and some are criminally inclined. The latter of each pair is going to be low status anywhere on earth. Even in Soviet Communism under commander Trotsky. Some people just suck. That’s the way genes work.

    And so thankfully for Leftism, even after achieving affluence, even after the working class disappeared as a thing, there was still plenty of material to work with to advance the cause of complete control. And so Leftist groups started agitating status for people of African descent. For Jews. For single women. For drug junkies. For sluts. For fat people. For homos. For lesbians. For aggressive Muslims. For the disabled. For the retarded. For the mentally insane. For the trannies. All people who are were low status in Western society. And who would be low status in any society. Because they suck. They just aren’t very productive. For no fault of their own. Some people are born tall, some short. Some smart, some dumb. Some empathic, some psychopathic. Some content with their lot, some greedy with powerlust. That’s how it is.

    And so the Long March through the Institutions that Gramsci first envisioned as a way of having the Italian Communist Party do what Lenin had done, ended up producing a different kind of Leninist system, one distributed and informal, instead of Lenin’s unified and formal, and one which morphed into promotion of the dregs of society qua dregs of society, instead of promotion of Marx’s idea of the wrongly oppressed proletariat. Marx was not a good man, but at least he tried to dress his ideas in a way that made sense. Das Kapital took some real work to write. But that was just some contingent accident of his time. Leftism doesn’t need to make sense. It just needs to get the job done.”

    “What did Lenin do? Exterminate the natural aristocracy of Russia, and build a ruling class with a bunch of low-status people. Workers, peasants, Jews, Latvians, Ukrainians. Lenin went out of his way to recruit everyone who had a grudge against Imperial Russian society. And it worked, brilliantly. The Bolsheviks, a small party with little popular support, won the civil war, and became the awesome Soviet Union. The early Soviet Union promoted minorities, women, sexual deviants, atheists, cultists and every kind of weirdo. Everybody but intelligent, conservative Russians of good families. The same happened in China, where e.g. the 5 provinces which formed the southern Mongolian steppe were joined up into “Inner Mongolia autonomous region”, what Sailer calls “consolidate and surrender”.

    In Communist countries pedigree was very important. You couldn’t get far in the party if you had any little kulak, noble or landowner ancestry. Only peasants and workers were trusted. Why? Because only peasants and workers could be trusted to be loyal. Rich people, or people with the inborn traits which lead to being rich, will always have status in any natural society. They will always do alright. That’s why they can’t be trusted; the stakes are never high for them. If anything they’d rather have more freedom to realize their talents. People of peasant stock though, they came from the dregs of society. They know very well that all they have was given to them by the party. And so they will be loyal to the death, because they know it, if the Communist regime falls, their status will fall as fast as a hammer in a well. And the same goes for everyone else, especially those ethnic minorities.”

    …snip…

    “So you could run a Leninist party just on class resentments. “Never forget class-struggle”, Mao liked to say. “Never forget you used to be a serf and you’re not one now thanks to me”, he meant.”

    …snip….

    “To get to the point: in 1960 we had a white men patriarchy. That was perfectly natural. Every society with a substantial proportion of white men will end up being ruled by a cabal of white men. Much of its biology; part of it is also social capital, good cultural practices accumulated since the 15th century. White men just run stuff better. They are natural high-status. But again, nature makes for messy politics. There is no social value on acknowledging truth: everybody can see that. The signaling value is in lies. In the unnatural. As Moldbug put it:

    in many ways nonsense is a more effective organizing tool than the truth. Anyone can believe in the truth. To believe in nonsense is an unforgeable demonstration of loyalty. It serves as a political uniform. And if you have a uniform, you have an army.

    Or as the Chinese put it, point deer, make horse.

    The point again is, that you can’t run a tight, cohesive ruling class with white men. They don’t need to be loyal. They’ll do ok anyway. A much easier way to run an obedient, loyal party is to recruit everyone else. Women. Blacks. Gays. Muslims. Transexuals. Pedophiles. Those people may be very high performers individually, but in a natural society ruled by its core of high performers, i.e. a white patriarchy, they wouldn’t have very high status. So if you promise them high status for being loyal to you; you bet they’re gonna join your team. They have much to gain, little to lose. The Coalition of the Fringes, Sailer calls it. It’s worse than that really. It’s the coalition of everyone who would lose status the better society were run. It’s the coalition of the bad. Literal Kakistocracy.”

    If anything, the vast majority of Americans, across the board, are outraged and disgusted by all the lies we were told, and the fake bill of goods we were sold.

    It was Donald Trump, more than any other candidate, including Bernie, who called them out. It was Donald Trump who pilloried the “lying media” and “Washington elites” for deceiving us out of tens of trillions of dollars to engage in these stupid, useless, endless wars .

    BOURGEOIS vs LUMPEN

    The bourgeois leaves a bad environment. He is the kid who is gone after graduation. He vanishes, if the immediate environment is not productive for him.

    The Lumpen is a son of the soil. He is trapped or chooses to remain in an unproductive environment. He is the one who hangs after the bourgeois leave for college.

    The bourgeois has less ties to his birthplace. If it goes bad, he can clear off.

    The Lumpen lacks initiative. When the Lumpen complains that blacks or Mestizos have more or less turned him into the equivalent of the Transylvania peasant, the average person wonders why the hell the Lumpen does not simply leave.

    But fundamentally, the Lumpen cannot adapt. He is effectively a townie.

    This is the fundamental split with globalists. The bourgeois can adapt; the lumpen is a son of a soil who cannot adapt outside his environment.

    The Bourgeois does not have a family young. He might be promiscuous, but marries later.

    The Lumpen has children young and marries young-these days the child is often out-of-wedlock.

    The Bourgeois does not get addicted to debilitating drugs. The lumpen does. He starts smoking pot young and gets into hard drugs as early as high school. His mind is too adrift as a young man to attend college because he is on drugs.

    The Lumpen is uneducated. Eventually, through self-education, he realizes what a raw deal he as gotten. But by then it is too late. He is 30 and has two kids and no money and no earning power and an arrest record.

    The Bourgeois can simply flit around the world. He travels frequently. The Lumpen has not interacted outside his birthplace so he has no comprehension of the rest of the world and no ability to hold his own in a global world.

    Thus, the lumpen ends up screwed.

    There is nothing a Bourgeois can do about it. When the Lumpen is 18 he believes he is invincible and only time and misfortune can chasten him. Over time he accrues wisdom but this wisdom cannot benefit him.

    The Lumpen female is attracted by physical attributes and not qualifications or prospects. This is why so often she is a single mother and less likely to meet a man who provides for her as successfully as the bourgeois.

    The Lumpen raises their children in an environment that hypersexualizes them which leads to early promiscuity and early pregnancy. The Bourgeois is not sexually active as early.

    The Lumpen tends to mature earlier. The film CLOCKWORK ORANGE or LOLITA demonstrate this tendency among the Lumpen. The Bourgeois matures older and is able to make more mature decision.

    The Lumpen is uneducated and entertained by more lowbrow stimuli. The Bourgeois is less influenced by dint of education.

    The Lumpen cannot understand money.

    I could go one and on but these are the reasons white proles are screwed and why the Bourgeois just get sick of them. Poor and working poor whites have discovered a new destructive drug? Why do they continue to be so stupid? Poor whites act out in sexually inappropriate fashions? Typical of the unstable home life and slutty mothers and absentee fathers? Lumpens are victimized by blacks? Why didn’t they sell their house 20 years earlier like the white middle-class who long fled to the suburbs?

    So you see the Bourgeois and especially in a raw capitalist system like the United States holds the Lumpen in contempt.

    See what I mean.

    The Bourgeois just want to get away form the Lumpen. He disdains the poverty, the bad decisions, the drug addiction…

    The Lumpen is also unappealing. They are often violent or settle arguments with violence. They are oversexed much of the time. They are often drunk or drugged. If female they are often promiscuous.

    So it is really hard for middle-class Bourgeois to really identify with them. They just want to get away from them.

    The Bourgeois sees the 19 year old girl with the 6 month old baby abandoned by the feckless young man who impregnated them they feel contempt for the Lumpen. The Bourgeois read that Oxy has ravaged poor Lumpen they wonder why they try every new drug. The Bourgeois hears the lumpen complain about globalism when the Bourgeois travels frequently and often does business abroad.

    So you see how it is. Middle-class whites are contemptuous.

    “Absent yourself”

    The petty bourgeois is the penultimate “fair weather friend”. They leave their neighborhood for college and are willing to move anywhere to obtain work.

    They travel frequently and enjoy living in different countries.

    They have little interest in remaining in their childhood or youthful environment beginning with college-more than happy to leave the region or state.

    They often enjoy living overseas and have no longing for their birthplace.

    Globalization is a logical extension of this. Those that are educated and able to live anywhere take their business wherever profits are biggest.

    They can do that because they have the money and the mobility.

    So essentially they abandon the Lumpen.

    Not exactly. The choice is real, and made on a basis of claims and definitions by the party line selected. The politicos say things they do not believe, and promise changes they have absolutely no intention of making. The voter places a vote based on what is said, and what is promised. However, all political entities do the same thing, and pursue the same goals, which are, essentially, to acquire wealth and power for the political class, regardless of the label on the door.

    Computerization and automation has assisted ‘Tonio Gramsci’s march through the institutions. These processes have ensured that more and more jobs resemble mid-level management positions in government, i.e. essentially unneeded or even counterproductive sinecures whose only real purpose is to reward the holders with money, status, and a simulacrum of modest power in return for the job holder’s loyalty to the establishment. Real, constructive, and rewarding jobs are becoming fewer and fewer and are restricted to the most elite.

    Meanwhile, the establishment can, without any adverse consequences, restrict access to other, meaningless jobs. These are allotted to those who are willing to become effective slaves of the establishment, loyal eunuchs who will adopt to any nonsense that is required of them if they are to retain their ersatz status in society. One can see the process at work in so-called institutions of “higher education”.

    Marx, the sociologist, may have been right about the ultimate consequence, even if he was wrong about the timing and the causal mechanism. Increasing concentration of real social resources in the hands of an ever smaller elite may lead to levels of misery that will ultimately destabilize and destroy the system which is concentrating the fruits of automation and computerization within an ever smaller ruling establishment.

    It is inaccurate to characterize everyone in the hinterland as “lumpen”. When I visit these poorer communities I find a mixture. There are some rich, some educated, most in the middle and a population of low lifes. There are just as many lowlifes, by percentage, in coastal cities, probably a good deal more. Visit New York, Philadelphia or Baltimore if you want to gloat over social breakdown and drug use. The bourgeois live with bars on windows and guards.

    The world has changed. 100 years ago the rural or remote citizen had limited horizons out on the steppes or in the back woods. Today they all have internet connections and cable or satellite TV. Believe it or not many people prefer a geographically isolated existence. In those communities one knows everyone. Traffic is nonexistent. In the cities one might never talk with residents in the next door apartment. Who are more provincial?

    There is a natural tendency to stay in your own community. Advantages include extended family members who might help with babysitting, introducing friends, recommending jobs. Uprooting may be necessary but it is a desperate act. People who move from one city to another, or one country to another, become rootless. If there is significant social unrest these well-travelled folks will be regarded as disposable. Consider the history of the Jews. The citizen of the world is a lost soul without a country and ultimately a shallow human being.

    Yes. Trade, immigration, education, trades training, banking, transport infrastructure, and monopoly regulation are important areas where Anglo countries need more, not less government intervention.

    Giving every young person a student loan and letting chose whatever they want to do (without even providing informed, impartial advice) is a bad idea. Leaving trades training to the market results in a shortage of tradesmen. Allowing the banks total freedom to manage mortgage lending results in grossly inflated house prices. Extreme free trade results in more unemployed third worlders wanting to come to the West. Giving big business too much say over immigration policy results in mass unwanted immigration and an MSM shutdown on immigration debate. Economic neoliberalism leads to a society where the right is reduced to debating economic issues like tax rates and the left has total control over culture.

    Most states had statewide lending libraries before broadcast radio was established. People were informed — at least, the capability was there. Being truly informed is something of a personal choice, as witness the local Unz clientele.

    I know that Marx used the words petit bourgeois. He meant the barely bourgeois slightly above the proletarians always in danger of sinking to proletarian

    His point was that the struggling bourgeois should accept that they too were exploited by the capitalists and not be so snobbish about the proletariat

    19th century saw the rise of a very new middle class or jumped up as the English called it. The old middle class resented the migratory farm laborers son who learned to fix farm machinery and wagons and rented a home and workshop.

    The former household servant who married the mechanic and quit work would be proud that they had a matched set of dishes and a table cloth although they still ate in the kitchen. She’d make sure to dress upscale compared to the servants and farm workers She’d get a 10 year old from the local orphanage as a maid paid in room and board.
    Marx’ point was that instead of trying to rise to middle class everyone should join his revolution.

    This is my last effort to educate you numbskulls on this issue. “Petty”, in English, does not mean what “petit” means in French.

    Marx referred to the “petit bourgeois”. The phrase does not translate to “petty bourgeois”. This is because “petty” has connotations that “petit” does not. If you wish to translate the phrase, rather than the first word, by all means, do so. I must point out that every educated person in America knows the phrase as “petit bourgeois”, and, much as I do, regards any idiots who translate that as “petty bourgeois” to be boorish, besotted dunderheads.

    Oh, certainly, very much so. It’s unfortunate, and unfortunate for us that we’re caught in the prop-wash, but I’ve become a bit blase about it. The US of A is a corrupt and decaying empire, moving steadily into the “Weimar” phase of its eventual collapse. This cannot be stopped, much less reversed. What we once were, we are no longer. Sic transit and all that.

    On the other hand, it is a normal and predictable part of any imperial cycle. The empire slowly collapses and falls apart. There is a violent period of social and economic upheaval (typically called an “interregnum”), until a new, dynamic power structure is achieved. And the cycle begins again.

    “Petty-bourgeois–

    1) The class of small proprietors (for example, owners of small stores), and general handicrafts people of various types.

    This group has been disappearing since the industrial revolution, as large factories or retail outlets can produce and distribute commodities faster, better, and for a cheaper price than the small proprietors. While this class is most abundant in the least industrialized regions of the world, only dwindling remnants remain in more industrialized areas.

    These people are the foundation of the capitalist dream (aka “the American dream”): to start a small buisness and expand it into an empire. Much of capitalist growth and development comes from these people, while at the same time capitalism stamps out these people more and more with bigger and better industries that no small proprieter can compete against. Thus for the past few decades in the U.S., petty-bourgeois are given an enourmous variety of incentives, tax breaks, grants, loans, and ways to escape unscathed from a failed business.

    2) Also refers to the growing group of workers whose function is management of the bourgeois apparatus. These workers do not produce commodities, but instead manage the production, distribution, and/or exchange of commodities and/or services owned by their bourgeois employers.

    While these workers are a part of the working class because they receive a wage and their livelihood is dependent on that wage, they are seperated from working class consciousness because they have day-to-day control, but not ownership, over the means of production, distribution, and exchange.

    If Mexicans made cities like Phoenix safe, we would not have an issue with illegal aliens.

    Few whites are stupid enough to get involved with Mexicans selling drugs and most of the time a whites path crosses that of Mexicans randomly on the street and the Mexicans decide to go after the white to pass their time.

    There are safe white areas in every major city but they are fairly expensive. And if you are a cop then you know that blacks and Mexicans tend to commit crimes in public spaces, not gated communities.

    As for Southeastern whites being useless, what about the Florida Hispanics? They are not even as functional as an everglades cracker.

    Ann Arbor has a median income of $50,000 a year. You’d have to be living UNDER a trailer park to think this was “wealthy”. Bloomfield Hills is the only wealthy city in Michigan, really.

    But in the end, they are outnumbered by the Germans willing to go quietly into subjugation by hostile and less advanced alien peoples. The Germans are still too slow to wake up, given the harms visited on a great number of Germans by the nonEuropean invaders.

    I’ve never sold (Nor used) hard drugs in my life. At college I did smoke pot.

    If you were an urban white you would know that even mere white addicts who get involved with blacks or Mexicans often suffer abominably.

    Let me tell you the story of Kathleen-

    Kathleen was an Ann Arbor girl from a respectable family and her father was a businessman. But she became unhappy when her parents divorced and fell in with the company of stoners in the 7th grade.

    This was the 1980′s and cocaine use was prevalent. Soon she was 14 and hooked on cocaine. She bounced from each one of her parents as she stole to get money for the drug, which was prohibitively expense.

    At 15, she fell in with older black teenagers whom she learned were a source for the drug. Worse yet, she was introduced to crack cocaine.

    One occasion, still 15, she was out with a carload of black teenagers and smoked so much crack that she went out of her mind.

    The black teenagers dumped her in the middle of the road writhing on the pavement half-naked, as they had already had their way with her.

    Her step-brother was my friend and some of this horrific tale was told to me.

    Blacks began coming to her mother’s house though she lived deep in the suburbs. On one occasion, they broke into the garage of Kathleen’s mother and stole some things.

    Kathleen was 17 when she moved out of her house. She moved in with a 21 year old cocaine dealer named Carl, I heard.

    Carl was from a good family and he and Kathleen were finally arrested robbing a country club restaurant.

    They both went to jail.

    Kathleen finally became sober in the early 90′s. Her step-brother would tell me that her brain was damaged.

    It is impossible for a white to be selling drugs in Detroit and “competing with blacks”. It is impossible to distribute pornography in Muslim countries.

    You are simply embarrassing yourself and I don’t believe you are a police officer (Which I think you claimed to be) but merely a Gen Y type small-town white who is 18 or 20.

  128. @Anon

    I don’t actually believe you are or were a police officer.

    I think you are a Gen Y kid who still lives at home and is 18 or 20. I’m not convinced you were a street cop for 20 years or something. You just come off as too young and naive.

    I was 24 at the time. Not a teenager with a welfare-dependent mother or anything of the sort, but a college graduate with little money.

    Why is it that crazy liberals always earn more money?

    Why is it that conservative whites who place an emphasis on hard work, temperance and faith cannot seem to earn as much money as hippies?

    Why are rural areas and whites from rural areas generally poorer than liberal whites from urban environments?

    For that matter, why are Evangelical Protestants poorer than Catholics or Jews, on average?

    Why is it that the towns that are falling apart and look rundown are not full of crazy liberals but generally more conservative whites?

    I’m not a particularly liberal myself.

    I don’t believe you as a season police officer. You come as a Gen Y-early twenties, maybe-who lives at home with his parents and blames his frustrations on Jews even though he is a white kid from the sticks.

    There is no way in the JEW-dicial system a cop could last who harbored your degree of dislike for Jews. Too many of them are public defenders, internal affairs and so on.

    So let me say this about Gen Y, to which I think you are a member and not some retired Boomer cop born in 1950 or something.

    Gen Y is remarkably immature. So much so that a college graduate moving to another city to accept an entry-level job seems unbelievable to you. Because you are 20 or 25 and live at home with your parents.

    Even the self-proclaimed leaders of your movements like Milo and Roosh all live at home with their mothers even though they are “Alpha Males”.

    I don’t believe you were born in 1950 and served on a police force.

    In 1999. This was a chance thing. A friend of mine had a job in Dubai and offered me a position. I took it. I was unhappy in Phoenix.

    When you go overseas it is really hard to return. I never did.

    Also, having spent my professional life (And salary) overseas I have nothing in the US anyhow. I don’t own a house, moved overseas in 1999 before I had dependents or a spouse, never invested anything in the US anyhow.

    Maybe this is a good thing, considering how little the 99% seems to have and the degree to which Jews apparently are trashing the rest of North America.

    These things were more muted (If true) in the 1990′s.

    well I brought up the word itself in the original comment…

    As a former bourgeois I must myself admit being shocked when I entered early adulthood and met the modern-day lumpen white.

    I always associated rednecks growing up with Leatherface’s father/gas station owner shouting “look what your brother did to the door” in Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    Or maybe Burt Reynolds. A tough, likable good-old-boy down South who drank beer while he drove a Pontiac.

    When I moved to Phoenix I first met poor white proles up close in the “efficiency” apartment complex and realized how totally screwed they were.

    Young middle-class whites sometimes go astray-get into drugs, become promiscuous, drink too much…whatever.

    But by the time college-educated whites have children they are 30 years old these days. They got the drug experimentation and the hook-ups and the recklessness out of their system during college.

    But with white proles, they have kids when they are in their early 20′s. The exception would be the real derelict guys and ex-cons so lowdown they cannot find a partner to reproduce with.

    I also met ex-cons. When one thinks of ex-cons they think of the character in ROADHOUSE who told Swayze…”I used to f*ck guys like you in prison”…and these kind of ex-cons exist in efficiency apartments. Not jailbirds who do two months here or there but the real ex-cons who have done serious time.

    The strange thing about the white female proles was that they were oversexed. The few I got to know, like Michelle, all spoke of sexual molestation. In the suburbs where I grew up, such a thing would have been unheard of.

    But molestation, using hard drugs by the age of 14 and prison time is part of the white trash experience.

  135. Free market imbeciles are the worst. I mean I can see a rich guy mouthing lies about the “free market” in order to snow the rubes. But a real self-respecting person who can read pretending that this so-called “free market” exists? Or works the way they say it does? My god how plain stupid. Don’t you realize that rich guys don’t believe in it? It’s just a convenient lie to sucker you, rubes. Zum Beispiel: I knew a phd in finance from Chicago School of Economics. He said, “Free market? There is no such thing as a free market. It is all crooked.” Grow up tiny little kiddies with your little brains.

    Why thank you kindly for your approval of my ideas. “Are you a citizen” (of Germany) : Nope I am still a proud and patriotic US citizen, and plan to stay as such.
    Regarding Germany : don’t get me wrong as there are many, many positive aspects of German culture to be considered, however at the present time the leftist political crazyness has reached new levels of intensity, for example what really infuriates me is the constant railing in the German media regarding US gun laws and their demand that the US alter it’s constitution so as to make private gun ownership next to impossible such as in Germany.
    It seems as if the Germans think somehow that they rule the world and that they are called upon to determine internal US policy, which is in fact none their fucking business.
    Aside from this they have, since the election, been also demanding that the US alter it’s voting laws so as to eliminate the “electoral college”, which was cause of their “Liebling” HC losing to DT.
    I am sure that you are familiar with Winston Churchill and his “Boot or throat” axiom, which seems to be today sadly as pertinent as eighty years years past.
    A country with such hideous big-brother laws on the books such as the so-call “Meldepflicht”, the ghastly code which Germans support and agree with, requiring that each resident report their address upon moving to the local police registry office : “Meldeamt”, such a country in which it’s citizens do not even consider the philosophical implications of such a tyrannical law, such a country is not qualified to be consistantly pointing its finger at other nations.

    Ann Arbor households had a median income of $65,600 two years ago, in 2016, according to http://www.deptofnumbers.com.

    “Why thank YOU kindly” for your detailed response.

    I’ll agree that your love of jazz and its practitioners is inexplicable.

    After someone says that he has lived in a country for decades, it’s natural to ask if he has become a citizen there.
    Thus, I’m not sure why you put my question “are you a citizen” in quotation marks as if it was unusual or annoying.

    I’ll be sure never to compliment you or express agreement with your views. I didn’t imply that you needed my approval, just trying to be friendly.

    Only partly self imposed. The educational system, the media, and corporate interests sure do work overtime to make it very hard to see past the blinders. They are very good at convincing a lot of people that being an expendable cog is living the good life. If you haven’t been shown the outside of the box (repeatedly and over time), it’s almost impossible for people to connect the dots on there own. The Matrix is strong.

    A lot of people are mad as hell, but don’t direct their anger to the source causes. All this acrimonious partisan divide is very useful to the ruling classes. It’s all the fault of the Dems, or the Repubs, or the Russians, or the Blacks, or Whites, or whoever as long as the anger can be successfully redirected at keeping us at each others throats.

    The real enemy is the fusion of government and corporate power under the neo-liberal world order.

    I’m German-American and the odd school shooting in the United States is nothing compared to the sheer violence and rape that refugees bring though if they themselves could lay hands on firearms as easily as minorities in the United States, Germany would already be a Caliphate.

    I’ve spent enough time in Germany with relatives as a child to know that even the Turks, who are made to look like Boy Scouts by refugee invaders, laughed at the Germans and their laws.

    As the most famous German-American in Milwaukee Jeffrey Dahmer proved, one does not need a firearm to commit ghastly horrendous crimes.

    You’ll still be complaining about how easy it is to buy a firearm when the refugees drive some truck through the front of Der Spiegler newsroom.

    I’m not sure we are disagreeing. I am an active supporting self-defense and “gun rights” and will be teaching our kids to use firearms defensively when they’re old enough.

    I don’t want any Muslims here or any other hostile or hard-to-assimilate people. The Germans will be subjugated and most of them will deserve it, because they are self hating cowards.

    Of course you’re right about what Muslims would do if they could get many firearms in Germany. So why let them in? Better to exclude and deport them instead of depriving Germans the right to own firearms for self-defense.

    How are mostly middle-aged to elderly Germans going to fare against physical assault by much younger non-European men, without guns in the hands of those older people?

    “How will they fare?”

    Not well. It could get to the point that Muslims will try to turn Germany into a base of operates for a Holy War and there will be a Third World War with Germany because of the liberals who tried to punish Germans for Nazism.

    Especially since the number of Germans able to pay into the system to support Muslim men who reproduce like rabbits on Spanish fly is going to make the fiscal fund run out and a bunch of them will be poor.

    ” Probably because it is more pleasant than being a white prole in the US”

    It would never dawn upon me to view myself as a “white prole”, just why would someone assume such a role if if they do not fit into such a category, and how others view myself has no importance.

    I do not view my brother, even though he is a hard-core liberal, who currently lives in Ann Arbor, or my wonderful (conservative) sister in Plymouth as “White proles”

    “Why is it that crazy liberals always earn more money?”

    Because liberals tend to have few or no children, while conservatives reproduce like rabbits. Raising children, by government policy I suspect, is a severe impediment to earning a living.

    Michelle was the picture of a white prole-she had yellow teeth, think dishwasher blonde hair and a small pursed mouth. She once told me that her brother had “sucked more dick in jail than I have”.

    What’s the point of living in a country (especially a white-majority one) if you view the majority of its inhabitants so lowly?
