Many have already noticed: The U.S. really, really doesn’t feel like the world leader, or even as a ‘first world country’. Of course, I write that sarcastically, as I detest expressions like ‘first world’, and the ‘third world’. But readers know what I mean.

Bridges, subways, inner cities, everything is crumbling, falling apart. When I used to live in New York City, more than two decades ago, returning from Japan was shocking: the US felt like a poor, deprived country, full of problems, misery, of confused and depressed people, homeless individuals; in short – desperados. Now, I feel the same when I land in the US after spending some time in China.

And it gets much worse. What the West used to accuse the Soviet Union of, is now actually clearly detectable in the United States and the United Kingdom themselves: surveillance is at every step, these days; in New York, London, Sydney, and even in the countryside. Every move a person makes, every purchase, every computer click, is registered; somewhere, somehow. And this monitoring is, mostly, not even illegal.

Speech is controlled by political correctness. Someone behind the scenes decides what is acceptable and what is not, what is desirable or not, and even what is permissible. You make one ‘mistake’ and you are out; from the teaching positions at the universities, or from the media outlets.

In such conditions, humor cannot thrive, and satire dies. It is not unlike religious fundamentalism: you get destroyed if you ‘offend’. In such circumstances, writers cannot write ground-breaking novels, because true novels offend by definition, and always push the boundaries. As a result, almost nobody reads novels, anymore.

Only toothless, ‘controlled humor’ is permitted. No punches can be administered intuitively. Everything has to be calculated in advance. No ‘outrageous’ political fiction can pass the ‘invisible censorship’ in the West (and so, novels as a form have almost died). Those who read in Russian or Chinese languages know perfectly well, that the fiction in Russia and China, is much more provocative and avant-garde.

In the West, poetry has died, too. And so has philosophy, which has been reduced to a boring, stale and indigestible academic discipline.

While Hollywood and the mass media keep producing, relentlessly, all sorts of highly insulting and stereotypical racist junk (mainly against the Chinese, Russians, Arabs, Latinos and others), great writers and filmmakers who want to ridicule the Western regime and its structure, have already been silenced. You can only humiliate non-Westerners in a way that is approved (again: somewhere, somehow), but God forbid, you dare to criticize the pro-Western elites who are ruining their countries on behalf of London and Washington, in the Gulf, Southeast Asia or Africa – that would be ‘patronizing’ and ‘racist’. A great arrangement for the Empire and its servants, isn’t it?

We all know what has happened to Julian Assange, and to Edward Snowden. In the West, people are disappearing, getting arrested, censored. Millions are losing jobs: in the media, publishing houses, and in the film studios. The Cold War era appears to be relatively ‘tolerant’, compared to what is taking place now.

Social media constantly represses ‘uncomfortable’ individuals, ‘unacceptable’ media outlets, and too ‘unorthodox’ thoughts.

Travel has become a boot camp. This is where they break you. Move through the Western airports and you will encounter the vulgar, insulting ‘securistan’. Now, you are not just expected to pull down your pants if ordered, or take off your shoes, or throw away all your bottles containing liquids: you are expected to smile, to grin brightly, like an idiot. You are supposed to show how eager, how cooperative you are: to answer loudly, looking straight into the eyes of your tormentors. If you get humiliated, still, be polite. If you want to fly, show that you are enjoying this stupid and useless humiliation, administered for one and only reason: to break you, to make you pathetic and submissive. To teach you where you really belong. Or else. Or else! We all know what will happen if you refuse to ‘cooperate’.

 

Now, ‘they’ will use double-speak to let you know that all this is for your own good. It will not be pronounced, but you would be made to sense it: ‘you are being protected from those horrible Third World monsters, madmen, perverts.’ And of course, from Putin, from the Chinese Communists, from the butcher Maduro, from Assad, or from the Iranian Shi’a fanatics.

The regime is fighting for you, it cares for you, it is protecting you.

Sure, if you live in the UK or the US, the chances are that you are deep in debt, depressed and with no prospects for the future. Maybe your children are hungry, maybe, in the US, you cannot afford the medical care. Most likely, you cannot afford housing in your own city. Perhaps you are forced to have two or three jobs.

But at least, you know that your ‘wise leaders’ in the White House, Congress, Pentagon and security agencies, are working day and night, protecting you from countless conspiracies, from vicious attacks from abroad, and from those evil Chinese and Russians, who are busy building progressive and egalitarian societies.

Lucky you!

 

Except: something does not add up here.

For years and decades, you were told how free you were. And how oppressed, unfree, those against whom you are being protected, are.

You were told how rich you are, and how miserable “the others” were.

ORDER IT NOW

To stop those deprived and deranged hordes, some serious measures had to be applied. A right-wing death-squad in some Central American or Southeast Asian country had to be trained in US military camps; a thoroughly absolutist and corrupt monarch had to be supported and pampered; a military fascist coup had to be arranged. Millions raped, tens of thousands of corpses. Not pretty at all, but you know… necessary. For your own good, North American or European citizens; for your own good…. Even for the good of the country that we designated for our ‘liberation’.

Few dissidents in the West have been protesting, for decades. No one has been paying much attention to them. Most of them became ‘unemployable’, and were silenced through misery and the inability to pay their basic bills.

But suddenly…

What happened, suddenly? Because something really happened…

 

The Empire got tired of plundering the non-Western parts of the world, exclusively.

Well-conditioned, brainwashed and scared, the Western public began to get treated with the same spite, as people in the plundered and miserable parts of the world. Well, not yet, not exactly. There are still some essential differences, but the trend is definitely there.

The Western public cannot do too much to protect itself, really. The regime knows everything about everybody: it spies on every citizen: where he or she walks, what he or she eats, drives, flies, watches, consumes, reads. There are no secrets, anymore.

You are an atheist? No need to ‘confess’. You are confessing every minute, with each and every computer click, by pressing the remote control button, or by shopping on Amazon.

Is Big Brother watching? Oh no; now there is much more detailed surveillance. Big Brother is watching, recording and analyzing.

General Pinochet of Chile used to brag that without his knowledge, no leaf could ever move. The old, fascist scumbag was bragging; exaggerating. On the other hand, Western rulers say nothing, but they clearly know what they are doing. Without their knowledge, nothing moves and nobody moves.

Arriving from China, from Russia or Cuba, the first thing that strikes me is how disciplined, obedient and scared, the Europeans and North Americans really are. They subconsciously know that they are being controlled and cannot do anything about it.

When trains get delayed or cancelled, they sheepishly murmur half-audible curses. Their medical benefits get reduced; they accept, or quietly commit suicide. Their public infrastructure crumbles; they say nothing, remembering the ‘good old days’.

Why is it that I feel hope, I laugh with the people, in Mexico City, Johannesburg or Beijing? Why is there so much warmth in the geographically cold cities of Vladivostok or Petropavlovsk in Kamchatka? Why are the people of London, Paris, Long Angeles looking so concerned, so depressed?

Some historically poor countries are on the rise. And the people there show appreciation for every tiny improvement. Nothing is more beautiful than optimism.

The West has fought the so-called “third world” for many, long decades; oppressing it, tormenting it, looting it, violating its people. It prevented them from choosing their own governments. Now it has gone overboard: it is attempting to control and to oppress the entire world, including its own citizens.

As various countries all over the world are getting back onto their feet, resisting pressure from Washington, London, Paris and Berlin, people in the West are increasingly getting treated by their governments with the spite that used to be reserved exclusively for the “under-developed nations” (yes, another disgusting expression).

Clearly, the West has “learnt from itself”.

While countries like Russia, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Iran and others are surging forward, many previously rich colonialist and neo-colonialist empires are now beginning to resemble the “Third World”.

These days, it is very sad being a writer in New York City or in London. Just as it is frightening to be poor. Or being different. All over the world, the roles are being reversed.

  1. And YOU ..ANDRE VITCHEK … and People of Your HYPOCRITICAL CULTURAL MARXIST ( in reality Jewish subversive ) Calibre ..have been Major Contributors to that development ! …………….. Are You proud ?

  2. All it means is that nothing of importance will happen domestically. The US kleptocracy is being dismantled, not by the subject population but by the outside world. The kleptocracy responds by controlling what it can – its proles. The only way Americans can contribute to the end of their regime is with solidarity. Ignore your fake democracy and go over the government’s head to the outside world.

  3. The Third Worlders obviously haven’t heard the news as they’re still crowding to get into the West.

  4. The good Mr Vitchek has previously complained he can’t publish in the West.

    Well of course – when it comes to viciously anti-European ‘others’ who want to play savior to all the darkies, we’re all full up.

    Perhaps he needs to give up that US citizenship (which of course he just to happens to have) and go back to Russia where he can spew out his anti-west vitriol to his heart’s content, and in good faith.

    But his people like to move between cultures and double deal, don’t they.

In the meantime, nuclear weapons are in the water, on the the land, in space, will be coming to every school yard and block . No problem. Trump and Netannazi threatening to nuke adversaries. No problem. Anyone heard of Hiroshima and Nagasaki before? No problem.
    The race warriors will be happy to see blacks going “back” to Africa, Indians to India, Chinese to China Ok you get the picture. But “whites’ will stay in the Americas , right?
    Question: What bout dem red injuns? what bout dem ‘mixed’ races? What bout black music , are they allowed to take it with them? Are non blacks allowed to listen to black music and vice versa? Are health practitioners allowed to treat anyone but their kith and kin?

    Apparently he wants to look proud, smug is the best he can do? His hypocrisy in making civilization’s main contributors oppressors and those who’ve contributed least but benefitted anyway look “oppressed” indicates this, no? The West has given too much and demanded too little in exchange – is now reaping the “rewards” – the hordes on its doorsteps and the world’s chief swindlers running the show. The gentile West has forgotten how to say no it has accepted so many lies. Forgot charity begins at home and most of it belongs there.

  15. This article seemed like it was going to touch upon something important, but then it went off the rails early and often.The mindless repetition of trite anarchist catchphrases is both tiresome and disappointing at this stage of the game. The status quo needs good criticism, but this isn’t it. Of particularly noteworthy awfulness was this bit:

    In such circumstances, writers cannot write ground-breaking novels, because true novels offend by definition, and always push the boundaries.

    Baloney. A true novel does not offend by definition. A true novel, like all true art, uplifts. It confirms the verities of the eternal world when the vagaries of the sublunary world are starting to get you down and coarsen your thinking. The whole “art as revolution” thing is pure modernist materialist horseshit, as was the rest of this essay.

    Neither Malcolm X nor Charles Manson managed to get the blacks to storm Beverly Hills and give the residents there slaughter. The blacks did take Detroit but not with a fight, more like through white flight, and what good did that do them? The whites are no better; the extremes of the more woke ones are fighting it out on the streets against each other. There doesn’t appear to be any struggle on the horizon in the US requiring any solidarity, most are just trying to survive and into whatever for themselves.

    I remember reading some left wing US website a while back that announced a particular date as the start of a nationwide revolution and called up people to turn up in each city at a specific time and place to the start mass protests and the revolution. The appeal was bombastic, serious, well worded, and convincing, well perhaps to the more naive. I followed the news and nothing happened. Absolutely nothing. I doubt anybody turned up and if they did it couldn’t have been more than a handful. Really funny. Sort of like Andre here calling for international revolution but who’s following, or even reading? Not many, and definitely not enough to make it happen.

  19. Great. Another anti-white, blame-the-victim, “you are destroying yourself” article. Fortunately, these “Why is the West Suiciding?” articles are less effective than before, now that we realize who the leaders of global plunder are. We know who is erecting the gay disco casino gulag — and they aren’t Western.

  20. The West is still oppressing the third world. Pres. Obama called Ugandans “odious” for no good reason. Peter Tatchell sends his agents to Jamaica to investigate car burnings. Robert Mugabe was excoriated for his “pigs and dogs” remark.

    White nurses whine about “FGM”, not just in their own countries but abroad as well. We’re supposed to take in women who are “refugees” from their traditional cultures. Photos of a Somali adulterer who was half-buried and stoned to death made the rounds on the Internet, with nasty comments from Europe, North America, and Oceania.

    That “people of color” might just look at these things differently never seems to occur to the white progressive.

    Fiction is a lie that tells the truth.

    A general suggestion to Ron Unz would be to include captions for images such as the one at the top of this article.

    As for the substance of this article: the decline in American living standards isn’t from oppressing the third world as much as it is from importing the third world.

    The decline in infrastructure is partly due to our highly litigious society, powered by a surfeit of lawyers, which dramatically increases the cost and construction time for new infrastructure. It’s also partly due to public sector unions, which consume so much in resources that little is left to maintain infrastructure. When a Port Authority of NY and NJ patrolman is making $400k for standing on a bridge, there is less money available to renovate the bridge.

    They’ll be coached by their handlers to game the system and still be better off than where they came from. At the expense of the already beleaguered taxpayers, natch.

    During Obama’s farewell speech he caused chuckles all over when he described the US as “the envy of the world” but as long as they can count on the Knights of Columbus, the Hebrew Immigration Society and however many more, it will continue.

    But it’s a sign of failure, not success, when non-oppressed foreigners help our plutocrats plunder the truly oppresseed, actual American taxpayers with no voice and few options. Short of a solar fireball taking out this whole hemisphere, I see no solution.

    Vltchek’s bias is that he thinks in nations, instead of corporations. Sure, the west is bad, but that does not automatically imply that the East is good. For example, That the West lost the war in Syria, is good for Assad, Putin, Xi maybe and others who exploit the Iranian Gas fields in the Persian Gulf, or are happy that gas flows from Russia to the EU, instead of from Qatar to the EU. But for the Syrian population it will hardly make a difference if the exploits are shared by Gazprom or Exxon. One can rejoice that the bombing stopped in Syria. But the bombing was not meant for the Syrian people, it was meant for making it possible to let some corporations interests prevail over other corporations, and the population was only useful to let one corporation win over the other: either as cannon fodder, or (when they were lucky enough to flee to the EU) as cheap labor. Vltchek does not see this, even though John Perkins ‘Economic hitmen’ are known even in the mainstream https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37Dvt2EqXF4

    It’s clearly the other way ’round – the West is becoming the 3rd World because it was too liberal, it never really oppressed (it wasn’t Jewish enough to do that, no real religious conviction – read Maurice Samuel), too playful and liberal.

    Instead of following Joseph Conrad’s advice to “exterminate all the brutes.” we gave them medicine. THAT was the cardinal mistake, one that evolution will not forgive – but I’m sure Jews and Muslims will make up for that with their sort of dystopian, full mind control ways.

    I agreed with most of this article, but ‘the west’ isn’t a country. Which countries specifically is the writer talking about?

    Also, from a lot of writers there is assumption and projection about what they think the situation is like in the U.K that doesn’t always seem to reflect reality.

    E.g

    “While countries like Russia, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Iran and others are surging forward, many previously rich colonialist and neo-colonialist empires are now beginning to resemble the “Third World””.

    From what I can tell, the only time the living standard was possibly better in the U.K than it is today was a brief period in the earlier 21st century before the financial crisis in 2008 and following recession, and a lot of the ridiculous political ‘correctness’ is about contrived, and what seems to me, unnecessary nonsense like fake ‘feminism’ and disingenuous ‘outrage’…

    And Russia and China also used to be empires, which is why they have such a large amount of territory, but writers like this would have us not think about that…

    I left my PhD program in Anthropology when on a “field trip” , my advisor and his idiotic tie-dyed moron of a wife (former student of his) crawled into my tent on the first night of a 2 week research project in black leather bondage harnesses and informed me it was time for me to join them in a “night of pure pleasure”.
    Fast forward…I got up, got into my car, drove through the night back to campus, parked outside of the Dean’s office, stormed in with wide-blood-shot-eyes when he arrived in his 700-Series turbo-charged Special Edition BMW and told him I wanted to file a complaint against Professor “Bondo” and when he (Dean Bozo) did not respond to my request in over a week, I withdrew from my program (ABD also) before the “Drop Deadline” so I could get full refund of my hard-earned TENS OF THOUSANDS of tuition dollars and used the money to secure an attorney (who I later learned was on-the-take for the University’s own legal counsel office of “Equity & Fairness”) until I ran out of money and then left town to take a position in Scotland on a research team studying Celtic migrations to the Northern Coast of the Iberian Peninsula, known for centuries unofficially as the “Celtic Coast”. I loved my work and worked with some amazing and HONEST and RESPECTFUL colleagues.
    I learned a big lesson from this EFFIN nightmare…be verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry careful of whose hands you find your career in…there are a lot of filthy, abusive, corrupt “faculty” and even more dishonest and disingenuous and despicable “administrators” in the contemporary academy and many have brass name-plates on their doors and hold do-nothing-but-damage-to-the-lives-of those who are often powerless against their callous and deliberate abuses.
    Even today, on my sleepless nights I can still hear Mr. Chips rustling in his grave…
    I went on to hold positions of academic renown in Europe and Latin America and eventually returned to the US when I knew I would be able to secure adjunct positions in the US and Canada and Puerto Rico to support myself and my family, whose lives I was able to maintain in a stable trajectory throughout this horror!
    Revenge is sweet however…today when I receive requests from my former “institution of higher learning” I respond in the SASE…
    “NEVER WILL I EVER GIVE YOU ONE CENT FOR NOT HAVING PROTECTED ME FROM ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF DR. “BONDO” YEARS AGO!” Even today, he is part of campus lore and is whispered about in hushed tones.
    What happened to the “prof”…he died of very painful brain cancer (poetic justice) and his idiot wife went full-tilt into drugs and is sitting in a pool of her own pee in a very dismal geriatric ward. And the “Dean”? He is likewise awaiting his last days in his luxury condo in Santa Barbara, CA surrounded by like-minded Lutheran do-gooders holding prayer circles and burning incense and rubbing crystals for each of their pathetic selves…

    Although I did agree with a lot of Andre Vitchek’s article, people like him seem to want people to believe that the ‘pervert’ and harsh treatment of women thing in certain countries is just propaganda, as if a lot of people haven’t ever met people from some of these countries or been to some of these countries themselves…

Consider the resources and the work that went into manufacturing those paper notes and into growing and picking the bananas? Which is more valuable? Hmm… At least you can eat the bananas but not the paper money. Shows how ridiculous the whole economy is. Anywhere and everywhere for that matter. And now it’s just electronic money. And if it becomes inflationary you’ll just have to keep adding zeros on your keyboard when making payments and have enough zeros after whatever number in your account. But those bankers in charge of the economy just add the zeros to their own accounts as they please inventing money out of thin air, whether paper or electronic.

    Joann, do you think Conrad was himself recommending “exterminate all the brutes” or was he damning the predictable outcome of the leftist mind? If Conrad were alive today he’d heartily agree with Dietrich Doerner, who writes in his Logic of Failure (1997), “It is far from clear whether ‘good intentions plus stupidity’ or ‘evil intentions plus intelligence’ have wrought more harm in the world.” Nothing has inflicted more damage to the people of this planet than Leftism, which we should never forget mass murdered over 60 million Russians for the unpardonable sin of being white Christians with a country of their own.

    Have a look at Burton’s Wanderings in West Africa. Burton was one of the great travelers and polymaths of the 19th century and had no use for either the Africans or the Europeans he found interacting along Africa’s west coast. Africans may have been technologically backward, but they were more racist than the Europeans and twice as cunning when it came to exploiting the other.

    I haven’t read Linquist’s Exterminate All the Brutes, but I have read leftist crap ironically blaming Western Civilization for imposing on African countries—not the art, architecture, music, philosophy, morals, ethics, science, education, technology, medicine, and other achievements of the West—but the lethal cultural degeneracy almost entirely attributable to the ongoing ascendency of the racially supremacist Jewish Left, destroying the West far more than anywhere in Africa and due mainly to International Jewry’s ownership of the public forum and so the formation of men’s minds throughout much of the world.

    Yes, but it is not necessary to go over the heads of nation state leaders.

    Human rights are superior to nation state rights.. all humanity has to do is to assert, in common, its inalienable rights.

    . The only defenders able to coup with leader-driven nation-state power are inalienable maker-given human rights {but assertion of rights humanity demands undivided concentration of action<=which suggest anti-divide strategy might be successful}..no government, no leader of government, no agent of government, no user of government has the authority, though they may possess the power, to infringe on, or to invade or destroy human rights. All such infringements by leaders of nation states and its agents have occurred because humanity has given such leaders passive permission. Humanity has allowed itself to become so divided, to be so programmed and controlled in such a restrictive manner that is has rendered itself defenseless against a leader use of the awesome nation state power to infringe human rights.

    Humanity is united by human rights.

    Humanity, when united, can be a force more powerful than the most powerful most corrupt nation states that leaders can use to impose on, or against, a population. Nearly all humans agree<= the right to life, the right to liberty, the right to engage and to pursue happiness, the right to self determination, the right to travel, live and be safe anywhere in the world is a human right to which every leader of every nation state is obligated to, and responsible to defend, protect and secure to humanity. Every leader, every official, every service provider, every user and agent of, or every element attached to, every nation must come to understand basic human rights Trump nation state rights..

    500,000 greedy persons have stuffed 8 billion humans into one of 206 (re: wikepedia) human containers (nation states ) and applied or used spy feedback tools, crowd control tools and mind control tools<= to control the behaviors of those trapped therein.

    GPPD is one set of mind control tools. GPPD involves (gating of access and opportunity to the container trapped person, bathing the container trapped person in 24/7 lies and misleading broadcast and distributed propaganda, controlling with false, limited or corrupt study materials, education made available to the container trapped person, and programming (from birth to death) the container trapped person with institutional rules and reward systems that control behaviors and punish unacceptable deviations, and by dividing the container trapped persons(CTPs) into even more refined groups and subgroups, wherein GPPD is again applied to each person in such groups, resulting in polarizing the group members to express hate, despise, or avoid behaviors against, or for, this or that. Those in group b are taught to hate those in group a, and those in a are taught to hate, despise or to avoid those in group b. ).

    The title of the article makes no sense, but its sounds good. The west became the third world because large parts of the west are now inhabited by third world “immigrants” and “refugees”. Europe, the USA and Canada’s populations have been transformed from ethnically European countries to multicultural countries with most of their new countrymen coming from the third world. The author may not like the expression “third world” but it accurately describes the poorer countries of the world.

    As to why the USA and Europe are becoming more like the USSR with less freedom and being watched over by big brother, I have several thoughts. According to more “race conscious” thinkers, the saying “diversity is our strength” is not accurate and in fact the truth is just the opposite. They say diversity breeds distrust within a country’s population and they say this has been shown over and over throughout history and the failure of diverse or multi-ethnic populations. Off the top of my head, I can think of Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and the Malaysia-Singapore merger failure. I think I see truth in their arguments and how it can be much more difficult to govern multi-ethnic countries. I think how different the different ethnic groups are within a country makes a difference, so when you have a country like the US where blacks relatively small part of the US population commits such a large percentage of crime in the US, it illustrates the problem with multiculturalism very well. In many countries in Europe gun control laws were minimal. That’s because Europeans are generally law abiding people. They don’t stick up cashiers at gun point or blow their neighbors heads off. Americans do. So gun control was never needed in European countries at peace. Swiss and others could own guns, go hunting, etc. In the US the media would have you believe “white supremacists” commit most gun violence. In fact gun violence by blacks is much, much higher than among whites. Also, in multiethnic countries its much harder to pass laws and make things work. When one part of the population sees another part as not pulling their weight, as living off the sweat of others it becomes harder to pass laws on healthcare and many things. I can see how socialism might work well in countries that are not multicultural, while being a failure in multicultural countries.

    As for the censorship now spreading like wildfire in the US and elsewhere, the surveillance of people, etc. The media is fully supportive and in fact probably largely responsible for these laws. Maybe if we examined the Jewish dominated USSR and the now Jewish dominated US, that might give us a hint. If a small Jewish population is going to run such a big country as the US, they may need gun control, censorship and mass surveillance. Jewish groups claim that some whites are a danger to the country. They call these people “white supremacists”. Maybe that is just a way to keep themselves in power and whites down.

    Their takeover of the legal system (Lawyers and judges) allows them to suck wealth from the people on a monumental scale.

    Their control of Media and Hollywood allows brainwashing and false narratives on a stupendous scale.

    Their control of Government through their essentially owning or being every single Congressperson or Senator means that they control the taxation and spending that cripples workers and enriches the Jews and their minions.

    This article is typically one-sided: the upper-middle and upper classes in the USA are doing very, very well, with booming wealth and incomes, and the areas where they live have the best facilities and infrastructure. Their economic situation is very different from that of most of the population.
    Those upper and upper-middle classes have simple decided to let the USA middle and working classes sink. The USA middle and working classes have been made redundant by offshoring all the industries infected with worker unions or replacing their workers with illegal immigrants; mexican servants and chinese workers never disobey, never strike.
    Part of this strategy has been to separate geographically, by means of property prices, lower and middle income people and upper-middle and upper income people, by building residential estates that unlike old mixed cities are targeted explicitly at a specific income bracket.

    The model chosen by the USA elites is the brasilian/”Elysium” one: favelas for the many, splendid gated communities for the few. That model is not new: it is the 19th century dickensian London model.

    Before I cancelled my New Yorker subscription, they published 2 (two) of her short stories. I read them, and thought I was having a mild stoke. Non linear. No plot. What was her “talent?”

    Now, when I want to read a short story, I always go back to:

    To Build a Fire, by Jack London.

    This section still grabs me by the throat, every time I read it.

    Following at the man’s heels was a big native dog. It was a wolf dog, gray-coated and not noticeably different from its brother, the wild wolf. The animal was worried by the great cold. It knew that this was no time for traveling. Its own feeling was closer to the truth than the man’s judgment. In reality, it was not merely colder than 50 below zero; it was colder than 60 below, than 70 below. It was 75 below zero. Because the freezing point is 32 above zero, it meant that there were 107 degrees of frost.
    The dog did not know anything about temperatures. Possibly in its brain there was no understanding of a condition of very cold, such as was in the man’s brain. But the animal sensed the danger. Its fear made it question eagerly every movement of the man as if expecting him to go into camp or to seek shelter somewhere and build a fire. The dog had learned about fire, and it wanted fire. Otherwise, it would dig itself into the snow and find shelter from the cold air.

    Now compare this to the man:

    But all this—the distant trail, no sun in the sky, the great cold, and the strangeness of it all—had no effect on the man. It was not because he was long familiar with it. He was a newcomer in the land, and this was his first winter.
    The trouble with him was that he was not able to imagine. He was quick and ready in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in their meanings. Fifty degrees below zero meant 80 degrees of frost. Such facts told him that it was cold and uncomfortable, and that was all. It did not lead him to consider his weaknesses as a creature affected by temperature. Nor did he think about man’s general weakness, able to live only within narrow limits of heat and cold. From there, it did not lead him to thoughts of heaven and the meaning of a man’s life. 50 degrees below zero meant a bite of frost that hurt and that must be guarded against by the use of mittens, ear coverings, warm moccasins, and thick socks. 50 degrees below zero was to him nothing more than 50 degrees below zero. That it should be more important than that was a thought that never entered his head.
    As he turned to go, he forced some water from his mouth as an experiment. There was a sudden noise that surprised him. He tried it again. And again, in the air, before they could fall to the snow, the drops of water became ice that broke with a noise. He knew that at 50 below zero water from the mouth made a noise when it hit the snow. But this had done that in the air. Undoubtedly it was colder than 50 below. But exactly how much colder he did not know. But the tem- perature did not matter.

    Great comment.

    But I remain convinced that what we are witnessing, what we are living through is nothing short of

    The Pyrrhic Victory of Jewish Supremacy Inc.

    As one of the Tribe once told me many years ago, “We’re the smartest and the dumbest people at the same time.”

    I think all of their smarts moves in one direction – total destruction. Which, of course, eventually includes them as well.

    Their single-mindedness of purpose has been their strength (if that’s what you want to call it). But it’s also their weakness.

    As with all parasitic predators, they’re good at infiltration, subversion, betrayal, disintegration, and destruction.

    But they’re no damned good at social-management. And it shows. Everywhere.

    Just look around. It couldn’t be more obvious.

    All of the social-institutions under their control are in free fall.

    Teaching-Learning institutions, Economic institutions, Government institutions.

    All of them.

    With the tunnel vision of a psychotic Dracula, they’re so focused on killing their victims while they sleep and sucking all of their blood, that they can’t feel the tickling of the poisonous spider crawling up their leg.

    Nor do they realize that they’ve already poisoned the blood of their victims.

    Why can’t they see this? Because they’re pathologically self-engrossed.

    Hang tight. Because things are moving so fast we might just live to see the day when their global Ponzi scheme collapses and the cat comes out of the bag for all to see (not just us).

    When that day comes people will no more fear the accusation of antisemitism than a person caught outside during a hurricane will fear being called a burglar for taking cover in the first house they see.

    While countries like Russia, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Iran and others are surging forward, many previously rich colonialist and neo-colonialist empires are now beginning to resemble the “Third World”.

    Russia didn’t have colonies?

    Now if you wanted to argue that those colonies only benefited a tiny handful of ((Russians)) and international elites, at the direct expense of the Russian people, (exactly like the ZUSA today), then I’d agree.

    But it seems to me that what you’re tying to do is blame the average white middle and working class American (and Brits and French and others..) for all the injustices of the world, and so as they’re crushed by the burgeoning Orwellian police state and treated as second class citizens in favor of all immigrants and non-whites, that they’re getting what they deserve, huh?

    Just as it is frightening to be poor. Or being different. All over the world, the roles are being reversed.

    ahh, being poor and different’. (white people have never known what it’s like to be poor, huh?)

    So it sounds to me like you’re celebrating the undercurrents of what’s roiling in South Africa.

    I only wish you could be there, on some remote farm outside of your lovely Johannesburg, as those who’re reversing the roles come in to exact their justice, and listen as you howl, ‘No No!, I’m a good white! Do what you want to the farmer and his family, but I’m on your side, and celebrate (with gloating snide) the roles being reversed!’.

In any case, White South Africa was a much better place than the current version. As is usual, almost all the murders there are black-on-black

    South Africa was way safer and more civilized under white rule. Just ask farmer Hans Bergmann who grows food that feeds the very blacks trying to kill him.

    As for the current backwardness, the American economist Michael Todaro has documented the challenges these countries face in his book Economic Development. Todaro, however, doesn’t factor IQ into the equation and instead uses coded language like ‘lack of competent manpower’ (paraphrasing).

    When I was young in Southeast Michigan, a few Irish and English and Germans still immigrated.

    Odd reminiscence crops up.

    Not sure if you’ve heard of Ayn Rand, but she once did a fairly detailed article about the “brain drain” the British Isles were going through, from maybe the late 50s till sometime in the 70s when the writing was on the wall about US industry.

    Evidently if an industrial engineer, say, wanted to make enough to pay off his schooling and have a shot at the top, the USA was the place to be. Milton Friedman sank that dream even before Reagan won in 1980.

    Once the American elite decided their own workers were the real enemy, the game was up. Right now the Chinese, Russians and the rest have a chance, for a good reason. Putin (etc) don’t want to end up like California. The see the future that don’t work.

    Poor Ayn Rand. Her “answer” — unfetter the plutocrats — turned out to be the same disease Milton Friedman was peddling. It led to the same dead end.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Withering_away_of_the_state

    “Withering away of the state” is a Marxist concept coined by Friedrich Engels referring to the idea that with realization of the ideals of socialism the social institution of a state will eventually become obsolete and disappear as the society will be able to govern itself without the state and its coercive enforcement of the law.

    The interference of the state power in social relations becomes superfluous in one sphere after another, and then ceases of itself. The government of persons is replaced by the administration of things and the direction of the processes of production. The state is not “abolished”, it withers away.

    Another related quote from Engels comes from Origins of the Family, Private Property, and the State: The society which organizes production anew on the basis of free and equal association of the producers will put the whole state machinery where it will then belong—into the museum of antiquities, next to the spinning wheel and the bronze ax.

    Although Engels first introduced the idea of the withering away of the state, he attributed the underlying concept to Karl Marx, and other Marxist theorists—including Vladimir Lenin—would later expand on it. According to this concept of the withering away of the state, eventually a communist society will no longer require coercion to induce individuals to behave in a way that benefits the entire society. Such a society would occur after a temporary period of the
    dictatorship of the proletariat.

    It proceeds from the concept of the transformation of the state in the previous stage of society called socialism. Engels posits that—similar to the arguments made by Henri de Saint-Simon before him—in a socialist society public organization would become primarily concerned with technical issues such as the optimal allocation of resources and determination of production as opposed to drafting and enforcing laws and thus the traditional state functions would gradually become irrelevant and unnecessary for the functioning of society. Engels argued that the state transforms itself from a “government of people, but the administration of things” and thus would not be a state in the traditional sense of the term.

    This scenario depended on Marx’s view of coercive power as a tool of those who own the means of production, i.e. certain social classes (the bourgeoisie) and the capitalist state. In a communist society, the social classes would disappear and the means of production would have no single owner, hence such a stateless society will no longer require law and stateless communist society will develop.

    The concept of the withering away of the state differentiates traditional Marxism from state socialism (which accepted the retention of the institution of the state) and anti-statist anarchism (which demanded the immediate abolition of the state with no perceived need for any “temporary” post-revolutionary institution of the state).

    In the Soviet Marxism of the Soviet Union, Lenin supported the idea of the withering away of the state as seen in his The State and Revolution (1917). Joseph Stalin’s government mentioned it occasionally, but did not believe the world was yet in the advanced stage of development where the state could wither away. He believed that at least in the short term the state had to have enough power to strike back against those elements seeking to derail the ultimate victory of communism. Thus, the Stalin-era Soviet Union marginalized the notion of the withering of the state.

    Red Dawn is fanatically anti-Russian, portraying them as evil, devious, ruthless. Complete garbage movie.

    Unfortunately, it’s the type of nonsense that Americans love.

    In a communist society, the social classes would disappear and the means of production would have no single owner, hence such a stateless society will no longer require law and stateless communist society will develop.

    This is not only impractical, it is bait to hook people.

    It is anti-communist. There are other anti-Russian movie like Rambo in Afghanistan,
    A nation like the USA which was at war with the USSR, you would have expected their movie industry to make more communist movies, but Hollywood itself is pro-Communist.

    Unfortunately, it’s the type of nonsense that Americans love.

    You are superior than all Americans. Why is it that Commies who speak of the working classes are mostly arrogant snobs?

    There is no indication in Independence Day that the whites are Jewish. None of the lead actors were Jewish.

    The characters in Red Dawn are all supposed to be card-carrying Anglo-Saxons.

    At the bottom of it, the horrible reality is that small towns in the US are so irrelevant that even Russians would not have wanted to invade them. Nobody cares a whit about them. They are the equivalent of Bihar. They simply matter not a whit.

  141. American prosperity 2019:

    – median salary: $2000/mo (post-tax)
    – median rent: $1450/mo

    you do the math…

    Most of Michigan is quite nice. Excepting the dangerous, heavily African cities (Detroit, Flint, and others, mostly in eastern MI), it’s a wonderful State with wonderful people. West Michigan and Northern Michigan some of the best folks I’ve ever met.

    There are more American Indians now than when there was before the white man came here. If whites were so damn bad then why is that the case.

    …Unless you need to get a job. Northern Michigan is particularly economically depressed.

    You won’t meet many Scandinavians immigrating to the UP today or Dutch to GR.

    Nobody has any money in Michigan. The jobs are non-existent and the wages low.

    Well, I’m only expressing my own opinion as someone that left as soon as he graduated. Because fundamentally, there are two kinds of people. Those who care about community and roots and those who care about living standard and money.

    People who are completely tied to their communities will never leave and those like me who are not will rush out.

    Africans are only part of the problem.

    This article is hilarious in retrospect (MERE DAYS) considering what’s going on in Johannesburg right now.

    Maybe the kind and loving Johannesburgians gave Andre the “nigerian smile” instead of normal smiles.

    ….populations grow over time? What?

    I hear Bihar is statistically one of the most financially inequal states in India, if not the most.

  148. @Jeff Stryker

    The Traverse City / Leelanau County is certainly not depressed any longer, as the proliferation of new housing and good medical care for retirees and the growth of tourism, restaurants, wineries, shops, etc. there shows. Much of the rest of northern Michigan, of course, is suffering, especially the eastern side of the State up there, Alpena on down to Bay City and Flint etc,

    Grand Rapids also is doing pretty well.

    The people in northern and western MI are some of the best I’ve ever met. I’d love to import a million of them — or their kids if they still had enough — to the Capital of Needlessly Nasty Fucks, Los Angeles.

  149. @Jeff Stryker

    ps Naturally there are almost no Scandinavians or Dutch immigrating to Michigan, as there are fewer and fewer such people in existence with each passing year, especially younger people who would typically be more likely to emigrate. The demoralized, self-hating, utterly confused people in those countries bear little resemblance to their ancestors who settled the place. We need them.

    You are projecting your own securities onto this group while simultaneously making a sweeping generalization. I will admit that is your forte.

    Your suggestion about bananas being made currency in Zimbabwe reeks of racism and ignorance. Gold and silver are true currencies. Bananas ripen and rot and your store of wealth will perish just like the dollar will do soon.
    Two weeks in Zimbabwe and whites will find that smart black men will strip them of all assets. Same in America, if you cannot retain an expensive lawyers from the start.
    One of the many reasons Zimbabwe became a basket case was vendetta by the west. Mugabe was was an idiot but not a a total dunce.
    Western (Zio) policies are akin to those of spiders. Inject the venom (Liquidity at usurious rates for projects that will fail) and then keep sucking.

    This Zio project is coming to a head with war in the middle east near future. Let’s see what the future brings if we survive.

    Rev.,

    LOL. So any mention of bananas is now racism. And watermelons too? I was reminded of photos from a Zimbabwe market showing a huge bundle of notes being used to buy a bunch of bananas. Yes, the world has gone totally bananas and not just in banana republics. But I agree with you otherwise about the Western Zio policies. Let’s see.

    Inject the venom can have a geopolitical angle as well as economic. Inject the venom as is Western Zio bankers injected Lenin and his Bolshevik gang, Mao, Castro, Khomeini etc… into nations.
    Maybe Gandhi was an injected venom too, his connections to the weird and dubious Theosophical society.

    Thought provoking title. Vague and meandering article. Please include more statistics and analysis next time. This article could have been good, but it came off as preachy and bitter.
