If there is one thing that still unites Americans across the ever more intellectually suffocating and bitterly polarized political spectrum our imaginations have been crammed into like rush hour commuters on the Tokyo Metro, it’s our undying love of identity politics.

Who doesn’t love identity politics? Liberals love identity politics. Conservatives love identity politics. Political parties love identity politics. Corporations love identity politics. Advertisers, anarchists, white supremacists, Wall Street bankers, Hollywood producers, Twitter celebrities, the media, academia … everybody loves identity politics.

Why do we love identity politics? We love them for many different reasons.

The ruling classes love identity politics because they keep the working classes focused on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and so on, and not on the fact that they (i.e., the working classes) are, essentially, glorified indentured servants, who will spend the majority of their sentient existences laboring to benefit a ruling elite that would gladly butcher their entire families and sell their livers to hepatitic Saudi princes if they could get away with it. Dividing the working classes up into sub-groups according to race, ethnicity, and so on, and then pitting these sub-groups against each other, is extremely important to the ruling classes, who are, let’s remember, a tiny minority of intelligent but physically vulnerable parasites controlling the lives of the vast majority of human beings on the planet Earth, primarily by keeping them ignorant and confused.

The political parties love identity politics because they allow them to conceal the fact that they are bought and paid for by these ruling classes, which, in our day and age, means corporations and a handful of obscenely wealthy oligarchs who would gut you and your kids like trout and sell your organs to the highest bidder if they thought they could possibly get away with it. The political parties employ identity politics to maintain the simulation of democracy that prevents Americans (many of whom are armed) from coming together, forming a mob, dismantling this simulation of democracy, and then attempting to establish an actual democracy, of, by, and for the people, which is, basically, the ruling classes’ worst nightmare. The best way to avoid this scenario is to keep the working classes ignorant and confused, and at each other’s throats over things like pronouns, white privilege, gender appropriate bathrooms, and the complexion and genitalia of the virtually interchangeable puppets the ruling classes allow them to vote for.

The corporate media, academia, Hollywood, and the other components of the culture industry are similarly invested in keeping the vast majority of people ignorant and confused. The folks who populate this culture industry, in addition to predicating their sense of self-worth on their superiority to the unwashed masses, enjoy spending time with the ruling classes, and reaping the many benefits of serving them … and, while most of them wouldn’t personally disembowel your kids and sell their organs to some dope-addled Saudi trillionaire scion, they would look the other way while the ruling classes did, and then invent some sort of convoluted rationalization of why it was necessary, in order to preserve democracy and freedom (or was some sort of innocent but unfortunate “blunder,” which will never, ever, happen again).

The fake Left loves identity politics because they allow them to pretend to be “revolutionary” and spout all manner of “militant” gibberish while posing absolutely zero threat to the ruling classes they claim to be fighting. Publishing fake Left “samizdats” (your donations to which are tax-deductible), sanctimoniously denouncing racism on Twitter, milking whatever identity politics scandal is making headlines that day, and otherwise sounding like a slightly edgier version of National Public Radio, are all popular elements of the fake Left repertoire.

Marching along permitted parade routes, assembling in designated “free speech areas,” and listening to speeches by fake Left celebrities and assorted Democratic Party luminaries, are also well-loved fake Left activities. For those who feel the need to be even more militant, pressuring universities to cancel events where potentially “violent” and “oppressive” speech acts (or physical gestures) might occur, toppling offensive historical monuments, ratting out people to social media censors, or masking up and beating the crap out of “street Nazis” are among the available options. All of these activities, by herding potential troublemakers into fake Left ghettos and wasting their time, both on- and off-line, help to ensure that the ruling classes, their political puppets, the corporate media, Hollywood, and the rest of the culture industry can keep most people ignorant and confused.

Oh, and racists, hardcore white supremacists, anti-Semites, and other far-Right wing nuts … my God, do they love identity politics! Identity politics are their entire worldview (or Weltanschauung, for you Nazi fetishists). Virtually every social, political, economic, and ontological phenomenon can be explained by reducing it to race, ethnicity, religion, or some other simplistic criterion, according to these “alt-Right” geniuses. And to render everything even more simplistic, each and every one of their simplistic theories can be subsumed into a meta-simplistic theory, which amounts to (did you guess it?) a conspiracy of Jews.

According to this meta-theory, this conspiracy of Jews (which is headquartered in Israel, but maintains offices in Los Angeles and New York, from which it controls the corporate media, Hollywood, and the entire financial sector) is responsible for … well, anything they can think of. September 11 attacks? Conspiracy of Jews. Financial crisis? Jews, naturally. Black on Black crime? Jews again! Immigration? Globalization? Gun control laws? Abortion? Drugs? Media bias? Who else could be behind it all but Jews?!

See, the thing is, there is no essential difference between your identity politics-brainwashed liberal and your Swastika-tattooed white supremacist. Both are looking at the world through the lens of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or some other type of “identity.” They are looking through this “identity” lens (whichever one it happens to be) because either they have been conditioned to do so (most likely from the time they were children) or they have made a conscious choice to do so (after recognizing, and affirming or rejecting, whatever conditioning they received as children).

Quantum physicists, Sufi fakirs, and certain other esoterics understand what most of us don’t, namely, that there is no such thing as “the Truth,” or “Reality,” apart from our perception of it. The world, or “reality,” or whatever you want to call it, is more than happy to transform itself into any imaginable shape and form, based on the lens you are looking at it through. It’s like a trickster in that regard. Look at “reality” through a racist lens, and everything will make sense according to that logic. Look at it through a social justice lens, or a Judeo-Christian lens, or a Muslim lens, or a scientific or a Scientologist lens, or a historical materialist or capitalist lens (it really makes no difference at all) … and abracadabra! A new world is born!

Sadly, most of us never reach the stage in our personal (spiritual?) development where we are able to make a conscious choice about which lens we want to view the world through. Mostly, we stick with the lens we were originally issued by our families and societies. Then we spend the rest of our fleeting lives desperately insisting that our perspective is “the Truth,” and that other perspectives are either “lies” or “errors.” The fact that we do this is unsurprising, as the ruling classes (of whatever society we happened to be born and socialized into) are intensely invested in issuing everyone a “Weltanschauung lens” that corresponds to whatever narrative they are telling themselves about why they deserve to be the ruling classes and we deserve to exist to serve them, fight their wars, pay interest on their loans, not to mention rent to live on the Earth, which they have claimed as their own and divided up amongst themselves to exploit and ruin, which they justify with “laws” they invented, which they enforce with armies, police, and prisons, which they teach us as children to believe is “just the way life is” … but I digress.

So, who doesn’t love identity politics? Well, I don’t love identity politics. But then I tend to view political events in the context of enormous, complex systems operating beyond the level of the individuals and other entities such systems comprise. Thus I’ve kind of been keeping an eye on the restructuring of the planet by global capitalism that started in the early 1990s, following the collapse of the U.S.S.R., when global capitalism (not the U.S.A.) became the first globally hegemonic system in the history of aspiring hegemonic systems.

Now, this system (i.e., capitalism, not the U.S.A), being globally hegemonic, has no external enemies, so what it’s been doing since it became hegemonic is aggressively destabilizing and restructuring the planet according to its systemic needs (most notably in the Middle East, but also throughout the rest of the world), both militarily and ideologically. Along the way, it has encountered some internal resistance, first, from the Islamic “terrorists,” more recently, from the so-called “nationalists” and “populists,” none of whom seem terribly thrilled about being destabilized, restructured, privatized, and debt-enslaved by global capitalism, not to mention relinquishing what remains of their national sovereignty, and their cultures, and so on.

I’ve been writing about this for over two years, so I am not going to rehash it all in detail here (this essay is already rather long). The short version is, what we are currently experiencing (i.e., Brexit, Trump, Italy, Hungary, et cetera, the whole “populist” or “nationalist” phenomenon) is resistance (an insurgency, if you will) to hegemonic global capitalism, which is, essentially, a values-decoding machine, which eliminates “traditional” (i.e., despotic) values (e.g., religious, cultural, familial, societal, aesthetic, and other such non-market values) and replaces them with a single value, exchange value, rendering everything a commodity.

The fact that I happen to be opposed to some of those “traditional” values (i.e., racism, anti-Semitism, oppression of women, homosexuals, and so on) does not change my perception of the historical moment, or the sociopolitical, sociocultural, and economic forces shaping that moment. God help me, I believe it might be more useful to attempt to understand those forces than to go around pointing and shrieking at anyone who doesn’t conform to my personal views like the pod people in Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

But that’s the lens I choose to look through. Maybe I’ve got it all assbackwards. Maybe what is really going on is that Russia “influenced” everyone into voting for Brexit and Donald Trump, and hypnotized them all with those Facebook ads into hating women, people of color, transsexuals, and the Jews, of course, and all that other “populist” stuff, because the Russians hate us for our freedom, and are hell-bent on destroying democracy and establishing some kind of neo-fascist, misogynist, pseudo-Atwoodian dystopia. Or, I don’t know, maybe the other side is right, and it really is all a conspiracy of Jews … transsexual, immigrant Jews of color, who want to force us all to have late-term abortions and circumcise our kids, or something.

I wish I could help you sort all that out, but I’m just a lowly political satirist, and not an expert on identity politics or anything. I’m afraid you’ll have to pick a lens through which to interpret “reality” yourself. But then, you already have, haven’t you … or are you still looking through the one that was issued to you?

    Yes because the divisive act isn’t flooding our nations with tens of millions of racially alien immigrants who steal from us in various ways, rape our women and murder is in hugely disproportionate numbers and in any case are being used as the tool to effect a total genocide of my own people who were virtually the entire population of my country just 50 years ago but projected to end–at best–a tiny, despised, persecuted tax-slave servile minority in our own lands by the end of the century, if not extinct altogether from a confluence of factors socially engineered on purpose against us, not the least of which is the violent racial hatred being whipped up against us constantly even though we are the ones most victimized by “The System.”

    That’s not divisive at all and as these people slit my throat and stuff me into the cannibal’s cookpot, I must remember that hey maaaaan, we’re all, like, humans, maaaaaan. We all, like, bleed red, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.

    I’m against any of this and my descendants being murdered, enslaved, or forced to miscegenate their bloodline out of existence then I am just a doo-doo-head, swastika-tattooed neo-nazi THUG and ugh, what’s the deal with identity politics!

    Hopkins, you are running out of material. You were really fresh first three or four times. It is about time to stop being a clown and getting serious. Perhaps some commitment to what you really want. Or some refinement and more precision in your generalities. Perhaps you could start with how come this global capitalism went on rampage “most notably in the Middle East.” Have you heard of country of Israel, tho so-called Jewish state, Zionists, Jewish lobby and yes, the Jews? You rather don’t touch this stuff, right?

    An what about your great diagnosis “The ruling classes love identity politics…sub-groups according to race, ethnicity, and so on, and then pitting these sub-groups against each other… primarily by keeping them ignorant and confused?” It is right on. But didn’t it occur to you that the mono ethnic societies are more immune to such games splayed by the ruling class? And did you draw any conclusion from it? Would you sager it with us? You live in Berlin. How the quality of life is improving there with more and more immigrants? How the ethnic identity warfare is progressing there? How do you like it so far? But your opinion in this matter doesn’t really count because you are a foreigner there and you do no share interests and sensitive of the ethnic Germans. If you had balls you would write about immigration and which side you are really on? But you prefer to be Hopkins über alles as if you did not belong to this world. Coward.

    This is why Civic Nationalism is a dead end. Actually, it’s useful as a mental stepping stone to the correct answer, which is, of course, Ethnic Nationalism.

    The fact that Peterson acknowledges that genetics deeply impact every facet of who we are as human beings and that different races/ethnicities/population groups vary genetically but then doesn’t seem to understand that different races will never magically act like one another shows that he’s either disingenuous or so deeply wed to a specific ideology that he can fool himself.

    Either way, no person with an IQ over 100 and any knowledge of genetics should fail to see that Civic Nationalism will fail. Now, in my opinion, some people – such as Steve Sailer – use the guise of Civic Nationalism to implement Ethnic Nationalism. “Cut off immigration so we can assimilate people or because its good for current citizens,” they say, when what they really mean is that cutting off immigration will maintain the current demographic make-up of the country, i.e. keeping whites in control.

  18. Saxon says:
    @Dutch Boy

    The real problem here is that people have injected nonsense into ideas of morality, framing their own group interests as a moral good and anyone against it/enemy group’s interests as immoral and bad.

    The only truth to moral relativism is a lot more nuanced than this. It’s that “morality” is largely just feelings in terms of “what’s worked” (in the past) and that it’s impossible to fully universalize to create a perfectly consistent moral system, because it will never be enforced equally–only selectively by those who hold power, which is precisely what you see right now in western countries with ostensibly neutrally-worded law and policy, that the outgroup gets the book thrown at them and the preferred client groups of the state/those who hold power get a free pass. It’s fully third worldist, anarcho-tyranny in practice.

    To go further into depth here; a moral system that tells you to not eat certain things as people have gotten sick and died existed before we knew of things like the Germ theory of disease is an example. You can universalize this, for sure, but not other things.

    Trying to create a universal moral system fails because different groups have competing, conflicting, and often antagonistic interests. What’s good and works for one group will not be good or work for another, especially in multiracial areas.

    One example: Arab/Pakistani moslems might say it is just and good that they be able to rape your women and take them as sex slaves. Has worked well for them in the past and hey, their religious book says it’s ok too. Not so good for you.

    Another example: Groups that don’t perform as well as others might start using sophistry related to the term “equality” to argue for redistribution and tax slavery/debt peonage of other groups. The term “equality” has become this loaded term that has begun to resemble Orwell’s Animal Farm at this point, and the people who use it usually just mean equality of outcome or actually just the “more equal than others” Orwellian bent.

    No one has any way to solve for group differences and conflicts in a multiracial country, which is why multiracial countries should not exist. These problems don’t even really exist in monoracial, monoethnic countries. In a multiracial country, even if you had a completely neutral arbiter in the form of some machine making decisions rather than a person who belongs to a group and would have group loyalty/interests, you would still have the sophists argue that the machine is somehow biased because of who programmed it or some other nonsense where they can’t actually put forth any argument with merit against it.

    This has actually already taken place in for example a machine doing simulations of college application acceptance stripped of all personally identifying data for the purpose of the machine’s algorithm–because the machine being fed data stripped of all personally identifying data accepted white males at a much higher rate than currently accepted by real humans in control, many of the “researchers” and the pundit class came to the conclusion that because white males were being accepted at a much higher rate than they currently are, the algorithm must be biased. Yet they could not explain HOW the algorithm could possibly be biased when the data it’s fed is stripped of all race/sex identifying data (in essence making it a pure meritocracy) or entertain the possibility that it is they who are biased.

    Another example of where this took place is a machine judging beauty based on ratios and just objective measurements. Since virtually all of the winners it chose were European and east Asians, again the same pundit class made the same claim that the people who programmed it were just biased.

    People have been pointing things like this out for decades, screaming into the wilderness but the brainwashed NPCs have been lapping up the mass media propaganda and believing the kumbaya around the campfire nonsense anyway. It’s kind of sad because it’s almost certainly going to lead to an unprecendeted bloodbath at some point if this is allowed to continue for too much longer.

  30. U. Ranus says:

    Regarding anti-racism, have some Chomsky:

    Capitalism basically wants people to be interchangeable cogs, and differences among them, such as on the basis of race, usually are not functional. I mean, they may be functional for a period, like if you want a super exploited workforce or something, but those situations are kind of anomalous. Over the long term, you can expect capitalism to be anti-racist—just because it’s anti-human. And race is in fact a human characteristic—there’s no reason why it should be a negative characteristic, but it is a human characteristic. So therefore identifications based on race interfere with the basic ideal that people should be available just as consumers and producers, interchangeable cogs who will purchase all the junk that’s produced—that’s their ultimate function, and any other properties they might have are kind of irrelevant, and usually a nuisance.”

  31. Indeed, the capitalist system, truly unchained after the fall of “real existing socialism,” is a terrible curse and the root of much evil plaguing humanity today. Not that humanity should not be able in and out of itself, to screw up its life (history is a splendid illustration of how people have done their best to make life miserable for themselves and others), but capitalism speeds up the process of self-destruction. Part of the current problem is that literally everything now has a monetary value. When everything is expressed in money, everything loses its value and nothing is worth anything. This phenomenon has been lucidly analyzed by Umberto Galimberti, I vizi capitali e i nuovi vizi (Milan, 2003). Unfortunately, there is no English translation available. Probably not commercially interesting enough, which would be yet more proof of the destructiveness of the capitalist system: it leads to people becoming monolingual.

  32. I understand the dangers of an excessive emphasis on identity politics, but what’s wrong with identity itself? Naturally, you can’t eat identity, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t important. Identity means a shared culture, heritage and value system. Ultimately, it’s what makes functional communities and countries possible. To use CJ’s metaphor, identity is like a shared lens conferring upon us a common moral/esthetic framework. Without it, civilization gradually–or rapidly–ceases to function … and you end up with what we’ve got now.

    So three cheer for shared identity!

    You’re right. The conservatives who hang at this website are arguably the best example of what the author Hopkins is talking about. They are so fixated on being angry white conservative males that they can never, ever relate to the rest of the world in any other way. Liberals, women, blacks, hispanics, Jews, foreigners etc are all hated and despised: despite the fact there are numerous things they actually have in common with all these other identity groups, every effort is made to NOT have anything in common with them. “He must be a fucking Jew” (because he sees things differently on an issue than me).

    A good example of how damaging identity politics is, is the recent appointment of Kavanaugh to SCOTUS. Despite Kavanaugh’s egregious record of anti-civil liberties, anti-worker, pro-war on terror, pro Citizens United, etc the angry white conservative male cohort of Unz.com loves Kavanaugh only because he a white male conservative–despite the fact that Kavanaugh will invariably vote against their best interests, i.e. instead serve the corporate-government plutocracy at their expense (legislate in favor of corporations at worker expense; roll back civil liberties which adversely affect ALL identity groups, legislate for elimination of habeas corpus, etc).

    They will never get it. Ever.

    CJ, battery is about to go. The TYO metro is not the examplar of crowding, OK, one or two lines that have direct switching to private lines.

    The crowding arises from the private lines in dormitory suburbs (bed-towns in Japanese).

    I am old enough to recall when people were still being employed part-time to cram (push) people into the carriages, but that was on the private lines.

    Once calculated the numbers on the Seibu Ikebukuro line. The carriages had a clear sign that each was rated for 118 people. I did an estimate by head count and extrapolation, the nunber per carriage was over 320. The main feeder subway line for that is still one to avoid, depending on a.m. or p.m., and direction.

    Several of the J.R. surface lines are still worth avoiding, my least fave is the Saikyo line, it is fine if you are going in the opposite direction to the commutors.

    what ever happened dopamine.. and its impact on morality.. Capitalism in theory is about greed based competition.. the more greed one invests in competition to achieve king of the mountain power and to accumulate in reserve, that power( called money) the more prior success allows to invests (in feedback feed forward fashion) to achieve yet more power and to save it (money) to be used when opportunity or challenge calls on the stored power, ( money).

    @Saxon states The real problem is that people have injected nonsense into ideas of morality, framing their own group interests as a moral good and anyone against it/enemy group’s interests as immoral and bad.
    yes, but that is not the real problem, its a result of the real problem. the real problem is an unfair distribution of power and wealth, the unfairness is created by an intention of the rule of law. As follows:

    What messed the whole idea of capitalism up was private ownership of public use objects and private
    ownership over products produced by the minds of strangers.. Why, b/c/e products were bough, sold and
    horded by generation to generation bequeath. Patents, Copyrights and Private land Ownership are
    examples of how Jewish networks abused the political process to established control over who can
    make a profit in a capitalist environment; they made a mockery of free and fair competition.
    Capitalism would work well and solve many problems including identity politics if it were not for these
    laws which capture, save and distribute the bits of wealth created by he many, into the banks of the few.

    first came the enclosure acts.. where the landed-gentry (benefactors of feudal-systems pledged to
    | keep armies trained and ready to protect the royalty in exchange for power and wealth
    | large masses of land within the kingdom)
    | —– this first developed into real estate deeds.
    2nd came the copyright -1st used to prevent news/truth or writings against the king from reach of e?masses.
    | Martin Luther, to present day Copyright law
    | ——with a mass market in the 18th century much like stocks and bonds are traded today in the
    | coffee houses of England, France and Switzerland (Ben Franklin)
    |——Ben Franklin’s insertion Art. 1, sec. 8 [8] in the U. S. Constitution ” To promote the Progress of
    Science and useful Arts, by securing [privatizing] for limited Times, to Authors, exclusive Rights
    [profit making monopolies] to their respective Writings..
    Which privatized ( made it possible for wealth to acquire and monopolies every industry);
    more importantly increased the total profit that could otherwise be made from a market place where
    all products were produced under the strongest of competitive circumstances and where all
    sales were made under conditions of the greatest competition. In short private profit making
    ownership of the products of someone else’s mind was made possible by this provision of the
    U.S. Constitution. |–in my opinion this is where capitalism went wrong.
    3rd came the patent
    |——Ben Franklin’s insertion Art. 1, sec. 8 [8] in the U. S. Constitution ” To promote the Progress
    of Science and useful Arts, by securing [privatizing] for limited Times, to Inventors,
    exclusive right [profit making monopolies] to their respective Inventions (discoveries).
    meaning ownership of monopoly powers sufficient to deny all competitors from infringing on the
    profit making from a product created by someone else’s mind is limited to whoever owns the
    product (patent) ]

    (Meaning monopolies were
    created over the subject area of inventions, and capitalist could buy sell swap or trade
    profit-making monopoly powers (patents) deny competition from all others, including even
    the guy that invented the subject that became a patent.
    Inventions of a strangers mind because the object of profit form the Jewish Syndicates.
    privatization [ made whole industries competition free to patent owners ( no one could
    legally compete against a group of capitalist who pooled their resources (Wall Street)
    (corporations and partnerships) to deal in private monopolistic ownership of products of
    a strangers mind.

    all of this hogwash about identity politics is the warfare of propaganda, but its not the underlying cause of the
    massive singularities in wealth and power, and its no mistake that that wealth and power is mostly in Jewish hands.

    It would appear that many commenting here fail to grasp the primary point of Mr. Hopkin’s essay. That is that we all have a “lens” – a portal through which we see and interpret the world, and that “lens” filters out certain information (that doesn’t fit our value system and way of seeing) and includes other information (that is consistent with our value system and way of seeing). This seems to me a rather important “starting point” for any adult conversation about the world, yet it would appear that many simply write off anyone (in this case CJ) who doesn’t share their “lens.” Too bad, because this is exactly the way “identity politics” works to keep us all divided and at each other’s throats.

    Once we do the necessary self-examination to clarify our own value system, and identify the “lens” through which we are seeing and interpreting the world, we actually have a chance to grown, mature and even develop something which is in very short supply across the political spectrum these days – wisdom. So much easier to simply dismiss or attack those who don’t share our values or “lens.” That Mr. Hopkins thinks for himself is clear, since he pleases almost no one on the so called “left” or the so called “right” of the spectrum. I much appreciate his thoughtful work, and his ability to write satire at a time in world history when the daily MSM news appears itself to be simply a form of slap-stick comedy.

But CJ, do you think the crazy anti-Maduro looking blacks with their communist red colored bandanas attacked him him for accidentally driving near their mob or did they attack him, repeatedly, for being a white man? If that guy was black no way they would have attacked him. It looked to me like a race war brewing. Blacks are simply just as racists as any other group of people.

Dividing the working classes up into sub-groups according to race, ethnicity, and so on, and then pitting these sub-groups against each other, is extremely important to the ruling classes, who are, let’s remember, a tiny minority of intelligent but physically vulnerable parasites controlling the lives of the vast majority of human beings on the planet Earth, primarily by keeping them ignorant and confused.

    Bullshit. The Jewish ruling class loves non-white ID politics but hates Hates HATES White identity politics, and as soon as White ID politics break through the current encirclement and become the White norm, the JRC will do an immediate volte face and start condemning ALL ID politics as bad (except Zionism, which will be protected with a cloud of horseshit Jew semantics as “not ID politics”), just to stop the new 800 lb gorilla of ID politics, White Identity, despite loving ID politics 5 minutes ago when it was empowering Jews and their Janissaries and not Whites, their main enemy.

    For all the things that seem to make sense here, there is so much nonsense as to render this article almost incomprehensible. “Identity politics” is kind of ridiculous to mock merely as a tool of the evil elite, as ALL people have an identity, and it is even ingrained in our DNA (see Times title “Is Your Baby Racist”). To some extent identity is socially constructed, as it may center around a football team or some other nonsensical (to me) thing. However, race is fundamental to anyone’s identity, although whites certainly try to deny that.

    I do agree that the “elites” use identity politics to their own ends. However, this is not applied equally. Whites (particularly white hetero men) are encouraged to have no identity as whites, save for shame, while all other groups’ identities are encouraged as a means to unite against the white majority, at least in the West. This is how the “culture of critique” works. There is NO way to erase racial identity, as even where extreme amalgamation has occurred, there still emerges a natural “pigmentocracy.” I won’t get into that.

    Let’s take a simple metaphor. Say a luxury cruise liner has hundreds or thousands of workers it wants to exploit with poor work conditions for little pay. These workers, united in their grievances, should theoretically want to band together (union?) to rectify these conditions. However, if the “elites” are certain to hire all different races and nationalities for each type of worker, they are more likely to fight one another than to unite against the evil “elites.”

    One last note. Imagine back in the day when virtually all nations were comprised of a homogeneous group united by common language, customs, religion, race (obviously), etc. Imagine in this climate there is one foreign group who finds its way in and seeks to profit and consolidate its power over these various populations, and this group is united enough to coordinate its efforts internationally regardless of which nation it inhabits. It might be in this group’s interest to push the majority population to become ever more “tolerant” of difference to the point in which its own identity is virtually banned, meaning one is not allowed to choose one’s own side for fear of reprisal (in the advanced stages). If the majority population became aware of this scenario, it may erupt in violence or driving of these foreigners from their lands. I cannot be sure, but there may just be a group that has been kicked out of virtually every place they have inhabited for over 2,000 years, yet this group takes 0% of the responsibility for this “anti-their group” sentiment. They’ve even built a religion around this “persecution” and are the ultimate victims, although religion is certainly not necessary for this group to maintain its own identity.

    If you want to know who really has power, then look to who you cannot publicly attack. White men rule the world? Bullshit. If I were famous and called out white men for any dirty deed, I might be thrown a parade. Name the chosenites, however, and in many Western nations one will find himself in prison. Fortunately, the US has the 1st amendment, so we only have to lose our livelihoods for such deeds.

    “Relate” how? We certainly participate in trade with them. What else do you want? They don’t have anything else of value for us. Though, the Japs are interesting and are like us in some ways. Believe me, we’ve looked and had first hand experience more than anyone else, and more than most of the groups that you cite. Your Jew example is nonsensical, as Jews have devised a culture that enables them to have as little cultural integration as possible with anyone that they live around. Moreover, they inarguably have a religion that drives toward Jewish world dominance and slave status for everyone else. Try learning about it at some point.

    Liberals, women, blacks, hispanics, Jews, foreigners etc are all hated and despised:

    You will not be successful in cleaving White women from our group, in spite of any future efforts and in spite of your current expressed frustration at that fact. You have all that you will currently get, and that number will shrink in the future. Cat lady spinster-hood, or towing little niglets behind, has not proven to be an attractive option for them.

    Even suggesting that we are against our own people and our better half, here, outs you as someone who is not arguing in good faith but instead arguing out of nonsensical and offensive political strategy. Our women hate niggers as much as any other civilized person does, and they certainly aren’t on the same platform with non-Whites. Moreover, one day we will likely take revenge for the damage that you have wrought in your decades long effort to destroy our unified group.

    “Liberal” Whites, who truly are White, have been brainwashed. They don’t know what they do. One day, we will take them back. Or you will assure that they come back when your NAM violence starts hunting every White person and they realize what has occurred. Other liberals, in general, deserve every ounce of hate. They are nothing but Talmudic robots. No thought nor tolerance needs to be afforded to them.

    despite the fact there are numerous things they actually have in common with all these other identity groups, every effort is made to NOT have anything in common with them.

    All groups look to dominate. Therefore, trying to find commonality with them, only to allow them to gain power toward destroying us (as we see today) is laughably stupid. They can domiante in their own territories, but not ours. Jews, however, have an overt plan to dominate everyone, everywhere, and thus cannot be trusted no matter where they reside.

    “He must be a fucking Jew” (because he sees things differently on an issue than me).

    He doesn;t :see things different than me”. He adheres to a master-slave religion that has the rest of the world on the wrong end of that proposed relationship. Your apologetics for the Jew only work toward making his goal a reality. Congratulations.

    A good example of how damaging identity politics is, is the recent appointment of Kavanaugh to SCOTUS.

    If the Left cared about eliminating identity politics, then they wouldn’t wholeheartedly embrace them whenever and wherever possible. That it is blowing up in their faces, with an equal and eventually greater backlash, is not our problem. It was your bad gamble and you will pay the price. Frankly, for minority groups to go whole-hog with the anti-majority aggression before they were truly in power might go down as one of the dumbest political moves in recorded history after all of this plays out. Idiots.

    Despite Kavanaugh’s egregious record of anti-civil liberties,

    You didn’t hear? We have the liberals on “mute” at this point. What you say literally couldn’t matter less. You have outed yourselves as homicidal, genocidal communists who need to be stopped cold and eliminated. Not listened to. Period.

    the angry white conservative male cohort of Unz.com loves Kavanaugh only because he a white male conservative–despite the fact that Kavanaugh will invariably vote against their best interests,

  77. Quantum physicists, Sufi fakirs, and certain other esoterics understand what most of us don’t, namely, that there is no such thing as “the Truth,” or “Reality,” apart from our perception of it.

    As usual, Mr. Hopkins has written an excellent piece. And, although I’m anything but a “leftist” and am certainly not going to go all Karl Marx, it’s clear to me that class is an important analytical tool to use in understanding what’s going on around us today.

    One thing, though: while I have no idea what Sufi fakirs (or fakers, for that matter) or certain other esoterics may have to say about whether or not there’s any such thing as truth or reality, I’m quite sure that physics, quantum or otherwise, says very little about such questions. Popularizers and liberal-arts types often seem to play the “quantum physics” card in an effort to lend a covering of spurious philosophical profundity to whatever claim they want to make. However, what quantum physics really tells us is that it is in principle impossible to quantify certain pairs of physical quantities about an object with arbitrary precision, and that this theoretically-irreducible uncertainty is important when dealing with very small things, and negligible in dealing with things on a macroscopic scale. And this isn’t because nature is agnostic about truth or reality; it’s because the process of measuring these physical quantities necessarily involves physically interacting with them. (You can’t see something unless light quanta are bouncing off it.)

    So, please, Mr. Hopkins, either do the work required to actually come to grips with the physics, or stick with the fakirs and other esoterics. I love your work and would like to continue to enjoy it, without any groans and eye-rolls interrupting it.

    I hope that C.J. Hopkins isn’t over 25 years old, because that’s the obvious maturity of his political thought and writing style. Well, maybe of a perpetually stoned 25 year old. I would not want to insult the many mature young readers here as they would not deserve it.

    Hopkin’s article seems out of place on Unz.com, even ignoring his dissenting opinion.

    In total, Hopkins’s article lacks any hint of deeper analysis. It reads like a Lew Rockwell article from 2003.

    Any number of serious-thinking commenters here could have written a better article when merely playing the part of a libertarian. The mark of someone who understands an issue is that they can dissect both sides of it and argue both sides. Hopkins reads like he either doesn’t understand politics or is willfully omitting and ignoring the actual perspective and politics of his target: the Right.

    His article comes across as a lecture from an author that is too disrespectful of his audience to assume adulthood, political knowledge, and thus that rejects the requirement to speak to them accordingly.

    Instead, he relies on shallow, propaganda-style content that is framed in tones of ridicule and condescension. Authors like him, who seemingly don’t have a deeper analysis to fall back on, need to rely on stern warnings and shallow ridicule, sans any discussion that reflects the real world, as Hopkins does here.

    However, the truth is that the national conversation is well past the discussion that Hopkins wishes to have. By at least one decade.

    In the future, I will hope that in a bid for balance, Ron can source better written material. Or else be satisfied that there really isn’t a true rebuttal to the modern Right. Either option would do a lot toward saving his reader’s time, effort, and Unz’s gold-standard publishing reputation. Any actual rebuttal could be disagreed with, but would command more respect.

    Dividing the working classes up into sub-groups according to race, ethnicity, and so on, and then pitting these sub-groups against each other, is extremely important to the ruling classes, who are, let’s remember, a tiny minority of intelligent but physically vulnerable parasites controlling the lives of the vast majority of human beings on the planet Earth, primarily by keeping them ignorant and confused.

    Like I said: Lew Rockwell 2003, or maybe Alex Jones at any point in time. Hopkin’s statements are shallow frames that do not reflect political reality.

    One example: Arab/Pakistani moslems might say it is just and good that they be able to rape your women and take them as sex slaves. Has worked well for them in the past and hey, their religious book says it’s ok too. Not so good for you.

    In Semitic Languages it says, “Though Shall Not Commit Fornication”. It is translated in English as, “Though Shall Not Commit Adultery”.

    Forty years later a 15 years old drunk girl claims that a 17 years old drunk boy tried raping her, being so drunk he was not even able to remove her clothes. And, the whole world is still up in arms.

    Palestine belongs to Jews, hey it says in the Jewish and Christians religious book, so it is OK.

    Actually, @obwandiyag is wrong. The notion that there is a “left” and “right” is cognitive dissonance.
    What has been happening, is that people are waking up to what has been going on, and are beginning to see globalism/internationalism as a threat to their nation. Therefore, the wakening is a return to nationalism in varying degrees.
    The premise that white people whose ancestors created the United States, should stand by silently while the globalists flood the nation with people the founding fathers would never have accepted, see activist judges creating law, and governments at all levels ignoring existing laws, whether on immigration or aid to Israel, is ridiculous.
    It is as illogical as Hopkins’ assertion that White people hate women and therefore, voted for Trump.

    Trump is the messenger of the real people in the US who are fed up with being ignored by their elected representatives. Trump, with all his warts and imperfections, is a warning signal to the globalist scum that have wreaked havoc on the US and virtually every other country on the planet. Ignore it at your own peril.

    So a deconstructed (destroyed) US society is a place where SJW’s explain that destruction = freedom, when in fact, it’s rather the completion of the Cultural Marxist (CM) cycle.

    CM first destroys traditional society, then grabs absolute power in a Neo-Bolshevik coup (Zionist/Globalist/SJW alliance) led by the types found in US MSM boardrooms, and then there’s no freedom at all.

    Same thing happened to Jared Taylor:

    “I stumbled onto the truth and I resisted the truth for many years. And, as I say, I would prefer to remain a liberal in all these respects. But, I don’t think you could build a successful society based on illusion. Adlai Steveson once said that: given a choice between disagreeable fact and agreeable fantasy, Americans will go for the phantasy every time. The idea that we’re going to build this successful, happy society which race could be made not to matter is a beautiful fantasy. Just as the communists tried to build a society on a fantasy. They thought they could build a society in which selfishness was going to be eliminated: from each according to his ability, to each according to his need. Doesn’t that sound lovely? And it inspired many, many people. And look at the millions of cadavers that were left behind in that attempt. I believe that the United States and practically every western European country is trying to build a society on an illusion that is equally mistaken as that of the communists. And, finally, more and more white people are waking up to this illusion. And, that is why you have Donald Trump’s success in the United States, why what is called, I think mistakenly, the “extreme right” is rising in Europe, and it is why we had Brexit. White people are finally waking up to find that what they’ve been told all of these years is wrong. There is something about race that is part of identity and that it’s genetic. And that we must, while we have the chance, seize the opportunity to pursue our own destiny and not be submerged by people who are unlike ourselves.”

    English woman who wrote a book in which part of it described Pakis taking advantage of some ~14-15 year old Irish girl who ran away from Ireland to London in a way that’s very similar to how the gangs have been more recently caught targeting lower class English girls.

    Well said, some shitty Pakis and not Islam. I hinted to you that the Jews have not only destroyed your counties, but destroyed Christianity too. Where as it says in Hebrew Bible, “Thou Shall Not Commit Fornication”, has been translated into English Bible as, “Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery”. Due to unchecked Fornication, 12 years old or younger girls are getting pregnant and having abortions. Alcohol is available abundantly to everyone, where all morals are set aside after being drunk.

    Now the Jews are doing same thing with Islam, trying to destroy it as they have destroyed Christianity and White race, by bringing low life Muslims to Western Countries.

    The nation state is the only organisation capable of protecting its citizens materially.

    Tell that to the former citizens of Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and Syria.

    More like the Ctl-Left.

  137. So it’s true that there’s no such thing as truth, C.J?
    “Truth is one’s perception of things.” So too wrote Holbrook Jackson in the time of G.K. Chesterton. Chesterton’s response? “The Big Blunder. All thought is an attempt to discover whether one’s perceptions are true or not.”
    Thought led Chesterton to a defence of the workman against the oligarchs, criticism of the Jews’ key role in undermining the health of the body politic and, finally, to the doors of the Catholic Church. All of this had a price: suffering for the truth’s sake.
    Like the man in the coloseum taking in the spectacle of Christians fed to lions set upon them, Hopkins is a friend of the people too; but he’s not a fanatic about it.

    I’ve been commenting at iSteve for well over 10 years. Everyone with a history here knows I don’t just accuse everyone who disagrees with me of being a Jew.

    You (((echo))). Try putting some daylight between your style, and a Jew’s.

    Even your handle (((echoes))) (annoyingmaus, look at my chutzpah, mah).

    So when we overthrow the conquerors, those divided from us will give up affirmative action benefits, stop their disproportionately criminal behavior, surrender redistributed wealth in the interest of fairness and the commonweal, and commit to rebuilding European societies all over the World?

    Much thought and many words used by the author to describe our problem of identity politics. However, appears little effort employed to identify its cause. Therefore, must question if this article is another exercise in promoting ignorance and confusion? If one is truly concerned about the infection of identity politics one may use their rational lens to seek its origin, the cultural marxists and their critical theory. Also, from where did the diseases of neoliberalism (Friedman?) and neoconservatism (Strauss?) spring? Understanding the origins of these three contagions will remove deluded personal bias and distracting confusion and allow for constructive action to treat the sickness.

    The writer is creating a false equivalency between “left-wing” and “right-wing” identity politics.

    Identity politics are a strictly leftist phenomenon, and are a discourse of oppression that exists in an oppositional relationship with mainstream or majority culture. As such, they are warmed-over Marxism, trading class for race and gender.

    Nationalism and populism, along with other traditional communities, are not forms of “identity politics.” Identity politics are ultimately their enemy, insofar as they seek to break the latter apart.

    Actually, they act like dummies a lot.

    If Mr. Hopkins doesn’t love identity politics he should seek to live in a ethnically homogeneous society, one with which he is ethnically compatible. Identity-free politics is a luxury forever beyond the budget of the multi-racial, multi-ethnic state.

    To be fair, he does say this:

    what we are currently experiencing (i.e., Brexit, Trump, Italy, Hungary, et cetera, the whole “populist” or “nationalist” phenomenon) is resistance (an insurgency, if you will) to hegemonic global capitalism, which is, essentially, a values-decoding machine, which eliminates “traditional” (i.e., despotic) values (e.g., religious, cultural, familial, societal, aesthetic, and other such non-market values) and replaces them with a single value, exchange value, rendering everything a commodity.

    Better than a lot of what we normally get to hear from approved pundits.

    But he has already devoted three entire paragraphs to attacking the ‘right’ (and trashing the idea of the JQ) as if it were a massively powerful force, comparable with the liberal/left. The liberal/left who have the full spectrum support the MSM, the press, academia, Faceberg, Twitter, Joogle and all the rest. It’s a totally false equivalence.

    Then he cucks out all over again:

    Look at “reality” through a racist lens, and everything will make sense according to that logic. Look at it through a social justice lens, or a Judeo-Christian lens, or a Muslim lens, or a scientific or a Scientologist lens, or a historical materialist or capitalist lens (it really makes no difference at all) … and abracadabra! A new world is born!

    See what he did there. We had one false equivalence and now – no equivalence at all! No jewish lens was mentioned, merely vaguely implied through the ultimately meaningless ‘judeo-Christian’.

    Definition of strawman:
    an intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent’s real argument.

    I’m not going to accuse you of that. I’m just saying that one doesn’t need to be a racist, hardcore white supremacist or anti-Semite in order to simply want a decent future for his/her children. He/she can do so without resorting to identity politics. This is more or less what the author here is talking about.

    Josep—I’m just saying that one doesn’t need to be a racist, hardcore white supremacist or anti-Semite in order to simply want a decent future for his/her children. He/she can do so without resorting to identity politics

    A decent future for your children would involve, for example, low levels of crime and a fair education system. Noticing that crime is high because of certain communities, or noticing that another community is skewing education in its favour, engages you in identity politics. If your concern for your children is so great that you speak out, CJ Hopkins will call you a racist and an anti-Semite.
