    As everyone doubtless knows, President Trump gave the pot a hefty stirring in Warsaw, Poland prior to attending the G20 summit. His message was well-received by immediate listeners but aroused a Sturm und Drang and a half from the usual Western media suspects who couldn’t be more predictable if they tried. First of all, the...

    If there is a clash of civilizations, why Muslims are not invading Mexico? Mexicans hate Mohammed and Coran, they are Christians and Muslims supposedly hate Christians. Do they love each others?

    In more detail: Because the Mexicans are so fervently Catholic (thus, Christian), the concept of family is very important to them. While the elites succeeded in disintegrating the American family, they have failed miserably in regards to the Mexican family, which remains alive and kicking, immune to indoctrination so far.

    For instance, the Mexican females don’t buy any of the feminist bullshit (which is a Jewish concoction anyway, of course), so they keep busy making more and more babies and making sure that the family remains as raucous and united as ever. As the Jewish plotters know, if the family is strong, the society stays strong.

    Also, in Mexico, you are a politician at your peril, because if you don’t deliver, the people will take it on you very directly. Suffice to say, politicos and police live very afraid of incurring the public’s wrath, and it’s not uncommon to hear of “public servants” who suddenly appear dead, one single bullet in the head. The Mexicans can easily take justice in their own hands, and it’s not always the cartels who do it.

    Talking about the cartels… a brilliant (recent) move by the Mexican people was to infiltrate the drug cartels (which were another Jewish/CIA invention), and so now some of the cartels act as kinda Robin Hoods on crack… delivering the goods in the little towns that the politicians promised but failed to deliver. And some of the drug lords are now local idols, because they not only sell drugs, they also help the poor… They give back to the community, so to speak.

    Moreover, when the Mexicans perceive a foreign threat, they stick together, and together they confront the common enemy, they’re not shy of taking it to the streets en masse, and can resort to violence more or less easily when provoked. And thanks to the elites, who were hoping to arm the cartels only, the Mexicans now have plenty of guns and even AK-47′s and enough ammunition to defend themselves.

    They don’t generally interbreed with foreigners, not inside Mexico anyway, so they haven’t been infiltrated by other races… And because of the local fervent Catholic belief, Muslims are… not welcome. African slaves arrived in the port of Veracruz in droves, many, many years ago, brought by the Spaniards… They ceased to exist, after some time, because the Mexican females were not very keen on having black babies. A population of mulatos survives in the area, the result of interbreeding of those blacks with Mexican women, but they are a minority, and their offspring comes whiter and whiter, as time passes by…

    You get the picture. The Mexicans remain stubbornly Mexican. They have big problems, but they remain in one piece. Unbreakable.

    Maybe the whites can learn a trick or two from those pesky brownies ;)

    By the way… About 45 % of the Mexican population is now kinda white, of European ancestry. But that happened in the past, they don’t mix with Europeans much anymore. But, the thing is that, roughly, almost half the Mexican population is white now.

    … And back to the USA and Europe: The problem is the white Caucasian females, who appear to be the unwitting traitors here… They were easily seduced by all the feminist crap that the Jewish plotters threw at her. And that alone has brought a lot of trouble and disruption, socially.

    As for the Mexicans, in spite of financial subjugation (the Bank of Mexico is of course owned and controlled by the Soros/Rothschild ilk), somehow, the master plan went wrong in Mexico, and my guess is that the globalists haven’t figured out what to do with the Mexicans, and aren’t happy with them. It’s hard to tame such a stubborn, resourceful, unruly bunch.

    “If there is a clash of civilizations, why Muslims are not invading Mexico? Mexicans hate Mohammed and Coran, they are Christians and Muslims supposedly hate Christians. Do they love each others?”

    Good question. The muslims can’t speak Spanish. Contrary to USA or Europe, Mexico is very cohesively religious: 96 % of the country is fiercely Catholic. Also, generally the Mexican society is an integrated one, where fervent nationalism is alive and kicking. That’s why.

    For the elites, those pesky Mexicans are a tough nut to crack :D

    An excellent take on the madness.

    In the end, all explanations fail. This is no criticism of you. It is simply to say that the madness is such that it is purely satanic. A malevolence is at work that is beyond human comprehension.

    “In the end, all explanations fail. This is no criticism of you. It is simply to say that the madness is such that it is purely satanic. A malevolence is at work that is beyond human comprehension.”

    And most people are not even aware, because they don’t (want to) believe in such things.

    What is happening is that the EU is quite busy to destroy nation states and nation cultures.
    Nationalism is fascism and racism, the foundation of genocide by gas chambers.
    Even Macron denies the existence of a French culture, at the same time his objective is to 'modernise' France, in other words, change the culture.

    Mr. Dykstra, I misread your comment. Please accept my apologies for my stupid reply.

    Gregory Hood wrote a very good article on Western elites and specifically Emmanuel Macron.

    I personally believe that Macron is ``our guy''.

    Emmanuel Macron and the Crisis of the Elite
    https://www.amren.com/features/2017/07/emmanuel-macron-crisis-elite/

    Did we back the wrong candidate in France? Is Emmanuel Macron—dare I say it—“our guy”?
    [...]
    It is a strange “conservatism” that welcomes reckless procreation and dismisses an awareness of limits as “liberal.” And yet Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Macron’s other critics are reacting to something real. The French president’s suggestion that African women are breeding like animals and must be restrained by an enlightened elite awakens primordial terrors in the hearts of the mainstream Left and Right.
    [...]
    If Europeans are replaced with Africans, Western Civilization will disappear. The choices are simple: The West, yes or no? The white race, yes or no? Our rulers have exhausted all other options. Mr. Macron, and his fellow Western elites, can no longer avoid the question. And we, as whites, must not let them destroy us by making the wrong choices.

    The following applies to Emmanuel Macron as well, in my opinion:

    This is how I see Mr. Unz; he is one of the few elites/institutional guardians who thinks for himself:

    The key to throwing off these chains of mental immaturity is reason. There is hope that the entire public could become a force of free thinking individuals if they are free to do so. Why? There will always be a few people, even among the institutional “guardians,” who think for themselves. They will help the rest of us to “cultivate our minds.” Kant shows himself a man of his times when he observes that “a revolution may well put an end to autocratic despotism . . . or power-seeking oppression, but it will never produce a true reform in ways of thinking.” The recently completed American Revolution had made a great impression in Europe; Kant cautions that new prejudice will replace the old and become a new leash to control the “great unthinking masses.”

    I think that individuals are more empowered and have more liberty in a more global world, but that is a much longer discussion.

    It’s a fairly short one but since you’re using “empowered” un-ironically I can see how it could become complicated for you. Citizens can only vote for their national leaders. That’s the only democratic lever they have and the only way to protect their empowerment and liberty.

    That’s a problem for the globalists so they’ll directly interfere through NGOs, Soros and the CIA but even if a god leader gets elected his hands are supposed to be tied by the supranational trade agreements, WTO or the EU. And let’s not even mention global banks and global markets.

    Meanwhile, the Internet’s globalist lords are aggressively monitoring everything and shaping the information flow. Anti-globalist voices are getting de-funded, slandered, shilled and pushed away from high traffic nodes. This process has greatly accelerated since MAGA and brexit.

    So, the only new globalist freedom is given to a Guatemalan citizen to leave his sunk ship (Guatemala – destroyed by globalist forces for the most part), and enter a sinking one (like the US – getting destroyed now). I don’t think it’s worth it TBH – certainly not for the NWO vision in which the goyim are flattened into a brown paste of misery, dis-empowerment and un-liberty.

    "The situation there is a firm ethnic Polish majority with integrated minorities having a first loyalty to Poland – language and culture."

    Exactly! On a day to day basis everybody's Polish though a minority also have genetic ties to other groups.

    That's also the case with the sort-of-indigenous Tatar muslim population which is historically known for very strong Polish patriotism (they often dont' get along with later muslim immigrants).

    There are limits to how far this can work in Europe but in most places they're not even trying to create (or maintain!) national identities based on language and culture (except to a limited extent with Eastern European immigrants).

    Instead they're trying to create a common European identity based on 'common European' values which are either never spelled out or which immigrants (especially africans and muslims) don't share at all and want no part of. It's won't work because... it can't work.

    You Sir are making some seriously outlandish claims about Polish genetic ancestry. Is this wishful thinking or are you just being dishonest?

    Please educate yourself.

  • The author and I are may not agree on the preferred role of the nation-state in the world. I think that individuals are more empowered and have more liberty in a more global world, but that is a much longer discussion.

    But maybe he will still understand my concern.

    In Trump’s speech in Poland, the word “democracy” was not used once.

    In a visit to a country where there have been widespread concerns about the collapse of political liberty, the President of the United States did not make even an oblique reference to free speech or any of the other components of liberty.

    By defining freedom in only nationalist terms, Trump implicitly defined it as only the right to be ruled by your own kind. That type of ethnic freedom has been important in history–it was very important to the 1848 central European revolts against the Hapsburgs and other dynasties. But is a very narrow component of overall liberty, and not a very American one. In the 20th century, ethnic based concepts of liberty unleased many horrors on the world.

    "If there is a clash of civilizations, why Muslims are not invading Mexico? Mexicans hate Mohammed and Coran, they are Christians and Muslims supposedly hate Christians. Do they love each others?"

    Good question. The muslims can't speak Spanish. Contrary to USA or Europe, Mexico is very cohesively religious: 96 % of the country is fiercely Catholic. Also, generally the Mexican society is an integrated one, where fervent nationalism is alive and kicking. That's why.

    For the elites, those pesky Mexicans are a tough nut to crack :D
    , @White Noise
    In more detail: Because the Mexicans are so fervently Catholic (thus, Christian), the concept of family is very important to them. While the elites succeeded in disintegrating the American family, they have failed miserably in regards to the Mexican family, which remains alive and kicking, immune to indoctrination so far.

    For instance, the Mexican females don't buy any of the feminist bullshit (which is a Jewish concoction anyway, of course), so they keep busy making more and more babies and making sure that the family remains as raucous and united as ever. As the Jewish plotters know, if the family is strong, the society stays strong.

    Also, in Mexico, you are a politician at your peril, because if you don't deliver, the people will take it on you very directly. Suffice to say, politicos and police live very afraid of incurring the public's wrath, and it's not uncommon to hear of "public servants" who suddenly appear dead, one single bullet in the head. The Mexicans can easily take justice in their own hands, and it's not always the cartels who do it.

    Talking about the cartels... a brilliant (recent) move by the Mexican people was to infiltrate the drug cartels (which were another Jewish/CIA invention), and so now some of the cartels act as kinda Robin Hoods on crack... delivering the goods in the little towns that the politicians promised but failed to deliver. And some of the drug lords are now local idols, because they not only sell drugs, they also help the poor... They give back to the community, so to speak.

    Moreover, when the Mexicans perceive a foreign threat, they stick together, and together they confront the common enemy, they're not shy of taking it to the streets en masse, and can resort to violence more or less easily when provoked. And thanks to the elites, who were hoping to arm the cartels only, the Mexicans now have plenty of guns and even AK-47's and enough ammunition to defend themselves.

    They don't generally interbreed with foreigners, not inside Mexico anyway, so they haven't been infiltrated by other races... And because of the local fervent Catholic belief, Muslims are... not welcome. African slaves arrived in the port of Veracruz in droves, many, many years ago, brought by the Spaniards... They ceased to exist, after some time, because the Mexican females were not very keen on having black babies. A population of mulatos survives in the area, the result of interbreeding of those blacks with Mexican women, but they are a minority, and their offspring comes whiter and whiter, as time passes by...

    You get the picture. The Mexicans remain stubbornly Mexican. They have big problems, but they remain in one piece. Unbreakable.

    Maybe the whites can learn a trick or two from those pesky brownies ;)

    By the way... About 45 % of the Mexican population is now kinda white, of European ancestry. But that happened in the past, they don't mix with Europeans much anymore. But, the thing is that, roughly, almost half the Mexican population is white now.

    ... And back to the USA and Europe: The problem is the white Caucasian females, who appear to be the unwitting traitors here... They were easily seduced by all the feminist crap that the Jewish plotters threw at her. And that alone has brought a lot of trouble and disruption, socially.

    As for the Mexicans, in spite of financial subjugation (the Bank of Mexico is of course owned and controlled by the Soros/Rothschild ilk), somehow, the master plan went wrong in Mexico, and my guess is that the globalists haven't figured out what to do with the Mexicans, and aren't happy with them. It's hard to tame such a stubborn, resourceful, unruly bunch.

    Gregory Hood wrote a very good article on Western elites and specifically Emmanuel Macron.

    I personally believe that Macron is ``our guy''.

    Emmanuel Macron and the Crisis of the Elite

    Did we back the wrong candidate in France? Is Emmanuel Macron—dare I say it—“our guy”?
    [...]
    It is a strange “conservatism” that welcomes reckless procreation and dismisses an awareness of limits as “liberal.” And yet Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Macron’s other critics are reacting to something real. The French president’s suggestion that African women are breeding like animals and must be restrained by an enlightened elite awakens primordial terrors in the hearts of the mainstream Left and Right.
    [...]
    If Europeans are replaced with Africans, Western Civilization will disappear. The choices are simple: The West, yes or no? The white race, yes or no? Our rulers have exhausted all other options. Mr. Macron, and his fellow Western elites, can no longer avoid the question. And we, as whites, must not let them destroy us by making the wrong choices.

    They've got the millions to spare, Anon. I appreciate the idea, I'd love to see some efforts other than this kind of site. Not just counter the spread, but actually slow down the production of the BS. But I think trying to sue the European Commission - or the CIA or Soros - would be difficult to say the least.

    For scale only, I sued a 'major' arts organization in my city over a flagrant violation of employment law (even my lawyer -who took the case for free - said it was one of the most foul things he had seen). Once the donors lined up to protect the organizations image and their pro bono goons got in on the action to boost their prestige, best I could do was settle for far less than the eventual lost income.

    On the propaganda side, Jeff Bezos buys WaPo for $300M, gets a CIA contract for $600M, changes the masthead to 'Democracy dies in Darkness', and proceeds to unscrew lightbulbs, blow out candles, and sling huge sacks of doo-doo far and wide every day. That's just one example.

    I would like to be wrong on this, but maybe that's why we don't see the suits you ask for. Maybe too difficult to go after somebody for what would be their 'opinion'. The best we have for now is keep trying to point out (maybe yell a little?) just how much propaganda is being delivered, by whom, and why. Give people who don't believe you a few sites to check out.

    You're wrong. The US (and the EU) is fully controlled by the supranational globalists. At least it was until Trump but that battle is still to be decided. The EU was not created to make the member nations stronger - it was designed to remove the sovereignty from the populace while they're being genocided. Open your eyes.

    As for 'muh welfare handouts'. Poland was really in the gutter after endless neoliberalism. People didn't even have basic employment security. PiS has changed that. All the neoliberals screamed that raising the minimum wage would increase unemployment(because that's what the neoliberal propaganda tells you). What happened? It's lowest as its been for over 26 years.

    A lot of other social protections came in, and nothing happened except life got better. The one reason why I'm optimistic about Poland is that unlike in a lot of countries, you don't have to choose between a pro-working class party (on economics) or pro-working class on refugees/third worlders. So in the UK, you have UKIP which is good on immigration. But their economic programme is tailor-made for rich bankers.

    This will be a permanent reason why they will never breach 10-15%, and why their support collapsed so fast. The anti-Polish neoliberals, who live in the big cities and don't care about the Polish nation, are seeing their parties in retreat.

    Of course nothing is permanent in politics, and I'd want the *whole* political spectrum to be pro-Poland in immigration terms, but having a political party which is pro-working poor and pro-lower middle class while at the same time rejecting third worlders is very important. Frankly, you sound like a lot of these neoliberals except on immigration.

    “No offence, but you’re full of shit. Worse, you sound like a hysterical neoliberal. Trying to bring back communist Poland? ”

    Do you live in Poland or speak Polish? Kaczyński doesn’t want to return communism but the general system in the communist period (with top down rule, patronage, promotion by loyalty rather than competence etc).

    Their official story is that he was a communist spy (throughout the Solidarity period) and that he facilitated a soft transition into capitalism so that the communists could still retain power.

    Don't have time at the moment, but the short story is that the party leader's (Kaczyński's) insitutional vision is essentially a recreation of communist Poland without the communism. Most of what they've done is welfare handouts and trying to reform insitutions back into their communist era forms.

    He's waged war against the court system since his party won the election with mostly nonsensical complaints so this is part of that.

    The one good idea the government has is refusing to settle "refugees" (the Merkeljugend).

    As for ‘muh welfare handouts’. Poland was really in the gutter after endless neoliberalism. People didn’t even have basic employment security. PiS has changed that.

    The situation there is a firm ethnic Polish majority with integrated minorities having a first loyalty to Poland - language and culture.

    This is the way the US used to work up to the 1950's and is probably the only basis for a successful society. It needs to be 100% clear that the US is an Anglo society with an Anglo tradition and ethnic minorities have to integrate and have a first loyalty to US language and culture.

    This is my understanding of "America First" and why it is such a threat to the whole ZioGlob frontier less, stateless, tradition free, PC multicultural corporate/financial project.

    There's nothing for the ZioGlob in "America First". The Jewish MSM, Jewish controlled Congress ("Israel First") , corporate low wage outsourcers, Jewish FED/Wall St and Neo-cons spending tax payer $ trillions on Israel's wars and every kind of corporate special interest don't want it.

    “The situation there is a firm ethnic Polish majority with integrated minorities having a first loyalty to Poland – language and culture.”

    Exactly! On a day to day basis everybody’s Polish though a minority also have genetic ties to other groups.

    That’s also the case with the sort-of-indigenous Tatar muslim population which is historically known for very strong Polish patriotism (they often dont’ get along with later muslim immigrants).

    There are limits to how far this can work in Europe but in most places they’re not even trying to create (or maintain!) national identities based on language and culture (except to a limited extent with Eastern European immigrants).

    Instead they’re trying to create a common European identity based on ‘common European’ values which are either never spelled out or which immigrants (especially africans and muslims) don’t share at all and want no part of. It’s won’t work because… it can’t work.

    You seem to think that inserting 'communist' in front of anything, like 'communist institutions', is a bona fide explanation. It is not, it is basically a shallow nonsense. Institutions in Poland have ancient roots, evolved over time, but there is no particular 'communist' tint to them, or would be - the processes, terminology, power relationships are very old and quite stable. The ideology has changed, but the underlying institutional structure much less so. So for example a cross on the wall appears and reappears (or a communist slogan, or a German monarch's picture, or a tsar), but the way things are done, the processes and the decision making have been very stable. This is Central Europe after all - the home of the office byrocracy.

    What Kaczynski is doing is trying to put his own cadres in charge of the key institutions like media and courts. That's all. He won the election and now he wants to actually have power to change things. You can't do it if the opposition keeps control of all the key institutions. The same happens everywhere - the policy is at its heart not much more than personnel policy. The liberals who lost - and are unlikely to win again for a long time due to the Merkeljugend issue - want to keep running Poland as before by their total control of key institutions. They after all dominate Warsaw and all the jobs there (not dissimilar to Washington or London).

    Kacsynski really has no other option - he can try to place his people in positions of influence (they won the elections after all), or he can just pack it in and do nothing. But that's not why he was elected. The liberal belly-aching is silly and hypocritical, why does a TV chief have to be an 'enlightened liberal from Warsaw'? Or all judges? People don't like them, it is time to figure out why instead of desperately holding on to their sinecures.

    Kaczyński didn’t win the election. Beata Szydło did. Kaczyński was kept out of sight during the campaign which made many people think he was leaving public life and that the party would turn into a more conventional Christian Democrat affair (which would be a natural in Poland).

    “The only son of Robert Mount and Lady Julia Pakenham, youngest daughter of the 5th Earl of Longford, KP, Ferdinand inherited the baronetcy from his uncle Lt-Col. Sir William Mount, Bt, TD, DL, who died in 1993, having had issue three daughters, including Mrs Mary Cameron, JP (b. 1934), mother of David Cameron, former Prime Minister (and Conservative Party leader).”

    My equally shorthand view would be weighted to the need to retain a level of growing prosperity that makes a not too rancorous democracy workable and in the short term certainly and, for more complicated reasons the mid to long term I think Austraia’s immigration policies and practices are a big plus.

    I would guess our average immigrant’s IQ is well above 100 as they come either as students or for skilled jobs though I confess to not knowing how much family reunion there still is for our 1970s undesirables and early millenial African tefugees (not many but an insulating dose I trust).

    It took till about 1966 for the Australian democracy to civilise itself and its people (with a bit of help from WW2 refugees and upwardly mobile Italians and Greeks while we were building manufacturing behind tariff barriers) so the White Australia Policy could be safely abandoned. There have been some hiccups on our way to where we are now with I guess 30 per cent with at least one foreign born parent, and some of the less educated working and lower middle class people have shown some susceptibilty to populist complaints about “Asian” (and now again of course Muslim) immigrants. But the reality is, in Oz as well as America, breeding by the productive (let’s call them net taxpayers without considering Deans of Science or inventors) is relatively low and late so the native IQ is undoubtedly declining while native welfare dependence on a positive or negative net taxpaying basis goes up.

    Too late for your sorts of dreams. Just encourage your children to marry successful Chinese and Indian Ametican professionals, academics and businesspeople. Australia’s most famous old club once famous (actually not really true) for absolutely excluding Jews and Catholics now has Mao’s Lsst Dancer as a member…. And so it goes, quite comfortably. And my closest relations’ children go to an elementary school where its flash new swimming pool has been paid for mostly by the small minority of Chinese parents.

    I would hate to think of what the hospital I was in recently would be like without the medical staff, including my Taiwanese born specialist, of whom nurses I remember came (or their parents came) from Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka, China and Kenya (gorgeous actually: though she said she was Bantu I suspected a bit of the Nilotic like Obama’s father and the Tutsi, and smart).

    So, even if one’s ambition is to make and keep a country beneficent fot Trump’s lower middle class and downwardly mobile supporters I think the Australian model is probably the only reliable way to go till we have a Brave New World where Eugenics is benign and accepted. (Yes Joey, Grandma’s right, you can have lots of fun with it every day but not make babies. That’s what we promised Grandma after your Mum overdosed and she brought you to us when you were 18.

    A secondary objective was to seize the property of the church and Catholics because by 1530 Henry was almost bankrupt because of his invasions of France and Scotland and his incredibly extravagant building projects and lifestyle. One of his palaces was the largest palace in Europe at the time even though England was only average in terms of wealth and population.

    The Pope was under palace arrest at castle St Angelo. In 1537 Charles 5 of the Holy Roman Emperor also King Charles1 of Spain invaded and sacked Rome. Thousands were nurdered, buildings were destroyed, so many women were raped by the German Lutheran and Spanish Catholic soldiers that the city was burdened with the massive costs of the resulting orphans for years.

    Every time the Pope made motions toward granting the divorce Charles 5&1 just threatened another sack of Rome over which the Pope was the secular ruler and protector.

    As important as a male heir for Henry was the property of the church and Catholics.

    What a farce, 6 wives, several mistresses and what did Henry get? 2 sickly constantly ailing boys who both died before they were 18 and 2 sickly girls who couldn't have children. ER 1 lived to an old age but she was the only one.

    He was the joke of Europe.

    Thank you.

    Reading the Wikipedia treatment if those events just now I see Henry opposing the church but only in the context of ensuring royal supremacy. He demand money to forget the church’s crime of favoring Rome. No mention of anything presaging wholesale dispossession.

    I believe stealing the property of the abbeys was a separate issue. Other rulers in Europe were also finding that maintaining modern armies was expensive.

    Belloc argued that Henry was too generous in letting the nobility do the dirty work of dispossession (and cutting them in) and that he weakened the monarchy thereby. But that’s another story.

    Demographic Imperialism under the cover of Globalism is the GREATEST threat against civilizations, cultures, and races. Globalism calls for domination of ALL THE WORLD by globalist supremacists.

    Since Jewish finance is most dominant, it wants to take over all banks in all nations.
    Since US military is most powerful, it wants to encircle and control all the world.
    Since Hollywood is most formulaic, it wants to take over all cinemas.
    Since blacks are fastest and toughest, they want to take over all sports teams of all nations. (Look what happened to the French soccer team). And since black men are most sexually aggressive, they feel it's their right to colonize all wombs around the world.
    Since white beauty is most prized, it is what all the world aspires to through artificiality or race-mixing.
    Since West is richest, all the poor sods want to move there.

    The West colonizes the Rest through military, finance, and media... and the Rest colonizes the West with sheer numbers.. mostly Africans, Muslims, and Hindus.

    This was the Old Empire.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtHV0iiAwS8

    It was imperialism from above or uber-imperialism. The great powers descended all over the world and laid claim. Empire that spread light.

    Now, we have imperialism from below or unter-imperialism. Third-rate Third World mobs, marauders, parasites, leeches, and squatters come to the West to feed on it like it's a beached whale. Empire that spreads darkness.

    Green parties say "Save the Whale", but the whale that needs saving is the West.

    Well-fed Western elites talk of Hope, but the Third World mobs are driven by Hunger.

    Hunger is a more powerful force. If left unchecked, Hunger will devour Hope.

    In the end, it will come down to Hate vs Hate.

    White Patriots will Hate the Western Elites who peddle Hope and Hate the Third World mobs that come with Hunger.

    And Western elites will Hate White Patriots because they must have their narco-fix of Hope to feel self-righteous and holier-than-thou.
    And Third World unter-imperialists will Hate White Patriots for saying NO to Third World Hunger for White Meat. Also, Hope convinced the Hunger that Hunger has moral claim on the West, i.e. the West belong as much to Africans and Arabs as to Europeans. (Some Hopers believe non-whites have MORE CLAIM because their Hunger justifies them.)
    So, the Third World Hunger feels it has a RIGHT to invade the West and take over.

    White Patriots must turn Hunter against the Hunger. And it must deny more Hope drugs to decadent well-fed Westerners who've grown lax and apathetic(and only passionate in their own demise as some delusional redemptive act).

    An excellent take on the madness.

    Thank you for not shaming me. The "of course" is not so much 1800 and it is the Kingdom of Naples v. the French which provides the setting. But it was of course Puccini's opera.

    A secondary objective was to seize the property of the church and Catholics because by 1530 Henry was almost bankrupt because of his invasions of France and Scotland and his incredibly extravagant building projects and lifestyle. One of his palaces was the largest palace in Europe at the time even though England was only average in terms of wealth and population.

    The Pope was under palace arrest at castle St Angelo. In 1537 Charles 5 of the Holy Roman Emperor also King Charles1 of Spain invaded and sacked Rome. Thousands were nurdered, buildings were destroyed, so many women were raped by the German Lutheran and Spanish Catholic soldiers that the city was burdened with the massive costs of the resulting orphans for years.

    Every time the Pope made motions toward granting the divorce Charles 5&1 just threatened another sack of Rome over which the Pope was the secular ruler and protector.

    As important as a male heir for Henry was the property of the church and Catholics.

    What a farce, 6 wives, several mistresses and what did Henry get? 2 sickly constantly ailing boys who both died before they were 18 and 2 sickly girls who couldn't have children. ER 1 lived to an old age but she was the only one.

  • Demographic Imperialism under the cover of Globalism is the GREATEST threat against civilizations, cultures, and races. Globalism calls for domination of ALL THE WORLD by globalist supremacists.

    Since Jewish finance is most dominant, it wants to take over all banks in all nations.
    Since US military is most powerful, it wants to encircle and control all the world.
    Since Hollywood is most formulaic, it wants to take over all cinemas.
    Since blacks are fastest and toughest, they want to take over all sports teams of all nations. (Look what happened to the French soccer team). And since black men are most sexually aggressive, they feel it’s their right to colonize all wombs around the world.
    Since white beauty is most prized, it is what all the world aspires to through artificiality or race-mixing.
    Since West is richest, all the poor sods want to move there.

    The West colonizes the Rest through military, finance, and media… and the Rest colonizes the West with sheer numbers.. mostly Africans, Muslims, and Hindus.

    This was the Old Empire.

    It was imperialism from above or uber-imperialism. The great powers descended all over the world and laid claim. Empire that spread light.

    Now, we have imperialism from below or unter-imperialism. Third-rate Third World mobs, marauders, parasites, leeches, and squatters come to the West to feed on it like it’s a beached whale. Empire that spreads darkness.

    Green parties say “Save the Whale”, but the whale that needs saving is the West.

    Well-fed Western elites talk of Hope, but the Third World mobs are driven by Hunger.

    Hunger is a more powerful force. If left unchecked, Hunger will devour Hope.

    In the end, it will come down to Hate vs Hate.

    White Patriots will Hate the Western Elites who peddle Hope and Hate the Third World mobs that come with Hunger.

    And Western elites will Hate White Patriots because they must have their narco-fix of Hope to feel self-righteous and holier-than-thou.
    And Third World unter-imperialists will Hate White Patriots for saying NO to Third World Hunger for White Meat. Also, Hope convinced the Hunger that Hunger has moral claim on the West, i.e. the West belong as much to Africans and Arabs as to Europeans. (Some Hopers believe non-whites have MORE CLAIM because their Hunger justifies them.)
    So, the Third World Hunger feels it has a RIGHT to invade the West and take over.

    White Patriots must turn Hunter against the Hunger. And it must deny more Hope drugs to decadent well-fed Westerners who’ve grown lax and apathetic(and only passionate in their own demise as some delusional redemptive act).

    Thank you.

    Reading the Wikipedia treatment if those events just now I see Henry opposing the church but only in the context of ensuring royal supremacy. He demand money to forget the church's crime of favoring Rome. No mention of anything presaging wholesale dispossession.

    I believe stealing the property of the abbeys was a separate issue. Other rulers in Europe were also finding that maintaining modern armies was expensive.

    Belloc argued that Henry was too generous in letting the nobility do the dirty work of dispossession (and cutting them in) and that he weakened the monarchy thereby. But that's another story.

But taking a sociobiological view of the issues, it seems to me what is failing is not so much the idea of globalism or the EU, but rather multiculturalism. Even in the utopian globalist model, it is unlikely that W.D. Hamilton’s rule of inclusive fitness and ethnic genetic interests are going to disappear. I see lots of trouble ahead for Europe and the US.

    Through four decades of communist rule, Poland and other captive nations of Europe endured a brutal campaign to demolish freedom, your faith, your laws, your history, your identity — indeed, the very essence of your culture and your humanity. Yet, though it all, you never lost that spirit.
     
    Ironically, one reason why Poland today is still very Polish is the historic fact of their post-war domination by the Soviets. It was Stalin who, after the war, ordered all the ethnic Germans to move to the DDR, all the ethnic Czechs to move to Czechoslovakia, all the ethnic Lithuanians to move to Lithuania, etc. So thanks to Stalin, Poland is now even more Polish than ever before. This, by the way, is true of nearly all the former Warsaw Pact countries in E. Europe.

    The situation there is a firm ethnic Polish majority with integrated minorities having a first loyalty to Poland - language and culture.

    This is the way the US used to work up to the 1950's and is probably the only basis for a successful society. It needs to be 100% clear that the US is an Anglo society with an Anglo tradition and ethnic minorities have to integrate and have a first loyalty to US language and culture.

    This is my understanding of "America First" and why it is such a threat to the whole ZioGlob frontier less, stateless, tradition free, PC multicultural corporate/financial project.

    There's nothing for the ZioGlob in "America First". The Jewish MSM, Jewish controlled Congress ("Israel First") , corporate low wage outsourcers, Jewish FED/Wall St and Neo-cons spending tax payer $ trillions on Israel's wars and every kind of corporate special interest don't want it.

    Don’t have time at the moment, but the short story is that the party leader’s (Kaczyński’s) insitutional vision is essentially a recreation of communist Poland without the communism. Most of what they’ve done is welfare handouts and trying to reform insitutions back into their communist era forms.

    He’s waged war against the court system since his party won the election with mostly nonsensical complaints so this is part of that.

    The one good idea the government has is refusing to settle “refugees” (the Merkeljugend).

    You seem to think that inserting 'communist' in front of anything, like 'communist institutions', is a bona fide explanation. It is not, it is basically a shallow nonsense. Institutions in Poland have ancient roots, evolved over time, but there is no particular 'communist' tint to them, or would be - the processes, terminology, power relationships are very old and quite stable. The ideology has changed, but the underlying institutional structure much less so. So for example a cross on the wall appears and reappears (or a communist slogan, or a German monarch's picture, or a tsar), but the way things are done, the processes and the decision making have been very stable. This is Central Europe after all - the home of the office byrocracy.

    What Kaczynski is doing is trying to put his own cadres in charge of the key institutions like media and courts. That's all. He won the election and now he wants to actually have power to change things. You can't do it if the opposition keeps control of all the key institutions. The same happens everywhere - the policy is at its heart not much more than personnel policy. The liberals who lost - and are unlikely to win again for a long time due to the Merkeljugend issue - want to keep running Poland as before by their total control of key institutions. They after all dominate Warsaw and all the jobs there (not dissimilar to Washington or London).

    Kacsynski really has no other option - he can try to place his people in positions of influence (they won the elections after all), or he can just pack it in and do nothing. But that's not why he was elected. The liberal belly-aching is silly and hypocritical, why does a TV chief have to be an 'enlightened liberal from Warsaw'? Or all judges? People don't like them, it is time to figure out why instead of desperately holding on to their sinecures.

    No offence, but you're full of shit. Worse, you sound like a hysterical neoliberal. Trying to bring back communist Poland? Get the fuck out.

    As for 'muh welfare handouts'. Poland was really in the gutter after endless neoliberalism. People didn't even have basic employment security. PiS has changed that. All the neoliberals screamed that raising the minimum wage would increase unemployment(because that's what the neoliberal propaganda tells you). What happened? It's lowest as its been for over 26 years.

    A lot of other social protections came in, and nothing happened except life got better. The one reason why I'm optimistic about Poland is that unlike in a lot of countries, you don't have to choose between a pro-working class party (on economics) or pro-working class on refugees/third worlders. So in the UK, you have UKIP which is good on immigration. But their economic programme is tailor-made for rich bankers.

    This will be a permanent reason why they will never breach 10-15%, and why their support collapsed so fast. The anti-Polish neoliberals, who live in the big cities and don't care about the Polish nation, are seeing their parties in retreat.

    Of course nothing is permanent in politics, and I'd want the *whole* political spectrum to be pro-Poland in immigration terms, but having a political party which is pro-working poor and pro-lower middle class while at the same time rejecting third worlders is very important. Frankly, you sound like a lot of these neoliberals except on immigration.

    By a long shot, globalist ideology is driven by western nations, especially America.

    The west needs moral and philosophical reformations, new ways of thinking that respect identity without the paranoid screeching about bigotry. The alt-right, with its pure focus on whiteness, is not going to be able to do this. It takes a broader vision to create and propagate new ideologies that can be applied to society in general.

    Every minority pressure group out there is a reliable source of virulent anti-white hatred.

    Diversity did not have to be but those who brought it about were unwise. The idea that America should be anything other than a white majority nation is absurd. Hosannas issue when hostile minorities and unassimilable foreigners talk about ethnic and racial interests but whites are just supposed to fade gracefully to khaki. And shut up about it. Reassert ourselves? The horror.

    " The real ‘clash of civilizations’ is thus between incompatible visions of the future of civilization: between that of globalists and those I will call localists. "

    This clash now is quite visible over new Polish legislation.
    A new law creates democratic control over the nomination of judges, something the USA has for high court judges since the USA exists.
    But Brussels opposes this, threatens with taking away Poland's voting right in EU decisions, stopping EU subsidies to Poland.

    A similar clash is over Hungary, the country has enough of Soros' propaganda university.
    But Soros visited Juncker and Tusk, Hungary was put under pressure, and now I'm not sure if Soros' institutions will be expelled or not.

    Then there is the clash over immigration, the orthodox catholic E European countries refuse Muslim migrants.

    And of course we see this clash over Brexit, the EU is of the opinion that the European High Court after Brexit still has jurisdiction in GB.
    Brussels does not see that the Anglican Church was created to stop the pope interfering in British affairs.

    What a farce, 6 wives, several mistresses and what did Henry get? 2 sickly constantly ailing boys who both died before they were 18 and 2 sickly girls who couldn't have children. ER 1 lived to an old age but she was the only one.

    He was the joke of Europe.

    The idea of globalism is much older. The ottoman empire was an example of globalism. The mongol empire before that, was globalism. Heck even the roman empire was globalistic in a way. Globalistic forces have always existed alongside localistic forces. And it was a form of globalism (colonialisation) that also helped make the west wealthy. It is also globalism that helped make the united states a super-power by helping its dollar become the global reserve currency.

    Thats globalism right there.

    But localism is also important because sometimes leaders of countries know whats best for their people better than some foreign person. Even if the foreign-persons have good intentions, they may not ‘get it right’ as native born leaders do. A lot of people in the world might not have achieved the living standards they have now…..if it was not for the development of ‘nation-states’ in the first place.

    So i think a ‘balance’ of globalism and localism is better over one or the other.

One quibble is that the author’s disdain for the alt-right seems odd given that he has no difficulty with the idea of unassimilable foreign enemies but seems to look down his nose at people who recognize there are unassimilable domestic enemies.

    The big question is what exactly is “globalism” and Mr Yates says that “globalism is not the same thing as globalization”. I have long regarded “anti-globalism” as a branch of the US hegemonist ideology designed essentially to break up the European Union so as to force its Member States back under tight US control, as in cold war days. Mr Yates confirms me in that belief. He designates four “anti-globalizers”: Trump and three far-right politicians from … the EU! It could hardly be more obvious! No other “anti-globalizers” are mentioned, certainly none from outside the EU, and it would thus appear that “globalism” is an evil which affects only the EU! That doesn’t sound terribly “global” to me! There’s a brickbat for Merkel, a “globalist” and a believer in something called “open borders”. I’ve seen the latter term used, essentially, by US alt-right authors, but I’m not sure what it means. It certainly doesn’t correspond to anything that exists in the EU. Russia is briefly mentioned, essentially to deny Russiagate, and is listed as a “villain of the moment” but not a word, needless to say, about Ukraine. Putin, of course, was originally intended to be both a battering ram to break up the EU and a bogeyman to frighten the defenceless little of countries of Europe back under US control, as “payment” for which he was to be allowed to re-annex all or part of the former Soviet Union. In other words, Putin isn’t an “anti-globalist”, he’s just an American stooge. That is just one part of the general “coming unstuck” of the whole scheme.
    The problem lies in that very contradiction: US hegemonists are trying to “sell” national sovereignty in Europe, or perhaps more accurately, ram it down out throats, but what they call “national sovereignty” is only such sovereignty as the US hegemonists vouchsafe to grant us, and that applies to Putin as much as to anyone else in Europe. He gets Ukraine not because he's entitled to it but because the US says he's to get it. That contradicts the very nature of state sovereignty. The nation-state is the basis of European political culture and we are all very attached to our sovereign nation-states. But since so many European nation-states are small, including possible future candidates like Scotland or Catalonia, the only way we can survive as nation-states is by coming together and building a sort of “giant Switzerland”. The only way we can maintain our differences is by being different together! The US “anti-globalists” deny us that right. That’s why I classify them as US global hegemonists and I think Mr Yates’ article confirms my view.

    You’re wrong. The US (and the EU) is fully controlled by the supranational globalists. At least it was until Trump but that battle is still to be decided. The EU was not created to make the member nations stronger – it was designed to remove the sovereignty from the populace while they’re being genocided. Open your eyes.

    Just a note, 'Michael Kenny' seems to have a reputation as a pro-EU troll on other sites. Most people familiar with his diatribes assume he is paid to put this stuff out as he is consistent, consistently wrong, and consistently does not answer refutation of his 'points'. He may well be part of that EU-funded staff that is tasked with monitoring sites such as this to "correct" anti-EU attitudes. Maybe a holdover from this: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/9845442/EU-to-set-up-euro-election-troll-patrol-to-tackle-Eurosceptic-surge.html

    Example: Assuming it is the same 'Michael Kenny', a few days ago he was faulting Trump for assuming there was a thing such as "the West" with certain characteristics or goals, and then immediately referred to "us Europeans" and"We Europeans" and assigned to them a "will to survive". I was not the only person to point out this obvious lack of consistency (to be polite), but as usual there is no response.

    Don't have time at the moment, but the short story is that the party leader's (Kaczyński's) insitutional vision is essentially a recreation of communist Poland without the communism.

    He's waged war against the court system since his party won the election with mostly nonsensical complaints so this is part of that.

  • Wandering Jews have long been labeled “rootless cosmopolitans”. Their culture is an adaption to their lifestyle, is this lifestyle. (Largely Jewish) Globalists take a model that works in the particular case of the Jewish people and try to generalize it to apply to the whole world. But what works as an exception is made possible by the existence of the base upon which it rests. The rule that governs the exception cannot in and of itself build or sustain the foundation upon which the exception rests.

    Humans are personal animals who need an intimate connection with their environs and other people. A mathematic model based on the economic principles of banking cannot be the base upon which human societies are created.

    As Socrates observed, many people who claimed to know about some particular thing erred–committed “original sin” in the Greek, not Old Testament sense–when they generalized, on the basis of their limited knowledge, and thinking that they knew a lot about a lot, talked authoritatively about that with which they were not familiar.

    Bankers are ill equipped to construct the Ideal Society.

    On the Anglican Church, Henry was desperate for an heir, no unimportant matter given the inherited monarchy then in place. Civil wars could result when orderly succession was not an option.

    Henry's request for an annulment was nothing out of the ordinary but the Pope's dilemma was that at the time he was under the de facto control of Charles, the Holy Roman Emperor, who was Catherine of Aragon's uncle.

    The local representatives of Rome could be some arrogant swine but for Henry the one thing on his mind was succession. The destruction of the monasteries was made possible by the break with Rome but it was not Henry's objective at the outset.

    A "cuck" is a spineless man. It is the short version of the word cuckold.

    So sad that you left the West. But this is what happens when a man leaves his race/religion behind. I will assume that your Bolivian wife was more Amerindian than high-caste Euromestizo or white. This is shown in describing Evo Morales as our president. Your atheism is not a problem because you do respect Christianity. Unfortunately, you have decided to cast your lot with an inferior third world, pagan nation. Also, chewing cocoa leaves is not helping you.

    I don't blame you for not wanting to return to the mother church. Like I said, I left the RCC because I don't accept black/Asian priests-popes. A new church will need to be created. Christianity is the best religion for the Western mind, soul. I am still a Christian but with no church.

    IQ determines everything. Only people with IQs of 90+ can create functioning, civil societies. You are lucky that you live in a country with a drugged population too listless from the drugs to cause you any physical harm.

    This is not the case in countries with blacks/Muslims or other types of Asians.

    I can not over-emphasize the irrelevancy of IQ test score psychometrics to the Alt Right political-policy agenda which is a revolt against post-1965 genocidal race-replacement immigration policy.

    All Jared Taylor managed to do with his obssession with IQ test score psychometrics is to completely sidetrack a long overdue laser-beam like focus on Asian "Americans" participation in the economic and racial genocide of The Historic Native Born White Working Class Majority.

    The only reason to talk about IQ at all is to illustrate that racial differences do indeed exist contra to the blank slate ideologists and their indoctrinees.

    Whether we are better or worse than any other group is not the relevant sticking point that a genocide is occurring and that we are a distinct population and not some fungible cog you can replace with whoever you want. Even the fact that the society obviously won’t be or operate the same if we’re gone is irrelevant to the argument which itself has moral characteristics.

    Ultimately though the enemy doesn’t care about morals or arguments or anything other than getting what they want, which is why certain tactics are employed and why the end goal is spreading the ideas and getting people awakened and acutely aware as to what is going on while making them prepared at least mentally for certain eventualities i.e. the possibility this ends in actual wars, which it probably will seeing the inertia of these disastrous policies.

    Hello Attilathehen,

    I checked the IQ website you referred to (https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country) and it mentions a Bolivian IQ of 87 indeed. This convinced me that you did not necessarily mean to insult Bolivians, so I’ll take you follow up seriously (long enough to be taken seriously anyway).
    First I’d like to comment on the Bolivian IQ issue. I don’t know how those IQ numbers of all countries in the world have been determined, but I feel highly suspicious about them. As far as I know, the IQ (Intelligence Quotient) of a person is defined as the quotient of the intelligence of this person and the average intelligence of human beings. The difficulty, of course, is how to measure this intelligence. Many kinds of tests have been developed and the amount of tests already indicates how highly contested this issue is. Just to mention a few issues (though I’m no expert at all on this subject, I happen to have learned a few things about it, out of personal curiosity):
    • How to distinguish between acquired knowledge and intelligence? An IQ-test should be designed in such a way that it wouldn’t matter to test an illiterate or a Harvard professor. After all, one might be extremely bright in spite of never having had the chance to study (a common circumstance in poor countries and Bolivia has always been the poorest country of South-America). Talking about a diversity of people ranging from the last nomadic tribes in the last remaining tropical forests and arctic tundras, all the way to the Harvard professor I already mentioned, this is obviously a very tall (if not impossible) order.
    • Developers of IQ-tests have come across the most unexpected biases, based on cultural, linguistic, etc. differences. A well-known example is that people familiar with a hieroglyphic script (like China and Japan) are much better at solving IQ-questions based on geometry. Another one is that various African tribes don’t fall into the trap of visual deceptions based on the 2D perspective of 3D rectangular shapes (the kind of geometric images with the question: “Which line is longer?”), because they live in the wild and in round huts so their eyes have never been conditioned to the effects of perspective of rectangular shapes.
    These few examples should serve to realize how unreliable IQ-tests can be. They may be fairly accurate to compare western people to a western average, but they can fail miserably under non-western circumstances. So I remain highly sceptical about the data of the website you mentioned.
    To determine the IQ of a person, his/her (somehow measured) intelligence is divided by the average intelligence (the denominator of the quotient on which the IQ is based). That’s why I could state with absolute certainty, that the average IQ of Bolivians (or Christians, or any large group of people) is exactly 100: the average Bolivian IQ, divided by the average Bolivian IQ, (equals 1) multiplied by 100.
    I presume that there is no difference of IQ between the many peoples and nations of our world, until proven otherwise. There might be differences (who knows?), but to calibrate IQ-tests for cultural, etc. differences is very complicated.
    The IQ of persons (estimating me at “well over 115”) and peoples (estimating Bolivians at just 87) seems to be very important to you, but to me, for various reasons, not that much. Poor and illiterate people may be smart and may have a rich and fulfilling social life (people that I have often met in Bolivia and who have impressed me more than most western intellectuals), while rich and highly educated people may be lonely robots dragging themselves from one day to the next with antidepressants.

    As for myself, I was married to a Bolivian woman. But we divorced recently and now I live on my own in this peasant community in the Amazonian foothills of the Bolivian Andes.
    Bolivians, as a remnant of the Spanish colonial era, are mostly catholic. However, strong pre-Colombian pagan beliefs and rituals still remain (which I appreciate highly!): the reverence of the traditional life-giving goddess Pachamama (many people still bring her fire offerings every first Friday of the month and every Friday of August, August being the month of Pachamama).
    When my President Evo Morales got inaugurated, those rituals and offerings to Pachamama were performed just as well. Without them, he would have been just another gringo president; after them he became OUR OWN President (by the way, I don’t always agree with what he does and sometimes he does [in my eyes] plain stupid things, but Evo is OUR President and he’s a whole lot better than just about any previous Bolivian president and any contemporary candidate).
    Surely Evo promotes the coca leaf (for traditional uses and non-cocaine alternatives): before he became President, he was the leader of the coca growers’ union (so what do you expect?)! Evo doesn’t promote cocaine, but he doesn’t criminalize coca-growing peasants either. Evo is looking for non-cocaine alternatives.
    Those peasants don’t have anything to do with the drug trade at all. They just sell their coca crop to the highest bidder and (due to the tremendous prices of cocaine in western contries) coca simply became the most profitable crop to grow (who’s to blame: the Bolivian peasant, barely able to feed and clothe his family?)
    I chew coca leaves myself: daily, practically all day (as is my habit for over a decade now)! I chew about half a pound (a quarter of a kilo) of coca leaves each week. Do you know how much coca leave it takes to produce one gram of cocaine? About 5 kg (10 lb)! This means that me chewing coca leaves (at a rate of half a pound per week), it would take me (10 lb / 0.5 lb/week =) 20 weeks to consume the equivalent of one gram of cocaine. This goes to make clear that chewing coca leaves (a South-American tradition for at least 3,000 years, according to archaeological finds) has about as much to do with snorting cocaine, as drinking a pint of beer instead of a pint of pure (96%) alcohol.
    Finally, I don’t know exactly what you mean with a “cuck Caucasian Christian male”. First, I couldn’t find the adjective “cuck” in any dictionary. And second, I’m not a Christian at all, but a convinced atheist However, rubbing two of my brain cells together, yes, I can see and I agree with Steven’s point that any secular legislation is a poor anchor for universal human rights and moral standards (nowadays, corporations like Monsanto, Shell and Microsoft, can just buy and sell those rights [by buying the necessary politicians, which is common practice already], so we’ve lost our main anchor!).
    On a personal level, I don’t see myself returning to the holy mother church ever again (though I highly appreciated Steven’s points of view!). However, on a societal level I do understand that religion still has an important part to play (as our last bulwark against naked, all devouring, capitalist greed). Maybe, someday, hopefully, we may free ourselves from the shackles of the way we measure our economic progress: the pathetically one-dimensional ruler of GDP, which forces all of us to believe that money is the only thing that matters. Until then (and I say this as a convinced atheist!), religion (any kind of religion for any corner of the world) might still save humanity from utter self-destruction. With that I don’t convert myself again to any kind of religion. I just repeat Seneca’s statement in my initial comment to Steven’s essay (while thinking as a politician) that “god is useful”.

    A “cuck” is a spineless man. It is the short version of the word cuckold.

    So sad that you left the West. But this is what happens when a man leaves his race/religion behind. I will assume that your Bolivian wife was more Amerindian than high-caste Euromestizo or white.

    First, tens of millions of Americans do not view themselves as "The West" or "Westerners"; they refer to themselves as Americans or citizens of the United States. Likewise, Europeans tend to reference themselves as "English", or "French", or "Italian".

    Third, you are correct in that increasing numbers of people like yourself, through social media, are virtue signaling the "changes" in the world you and your ilk consider to be frightening. Feel free to initiate your own brand of reforms, and face a lightening rod of criticism and revulsion.

    Your desire to install by force a Christian monarchy and/or aristocracy, with patriarchal and social hierarchal underpinnings, is something that most Americans, regardless of race, creed, or religion, would violently oppose.

    You sell your wares from a philosophical point of view. But you rarely emphasis the practicality of NRx.

Why should "We The People" submit to your brand of religion, to what amounts to orthodoxy?

    More questions than there are answers to this deranged proposal, which strips away at the liberty that it reportedly protects and inherently creates the same problems that it supposedly solves.

    Fascinating. Are you married or involved with a Bolivian woman (i.e., Indian)?

    Are you familiar with the book about the IQ of nations? You can google this info. Bolivia does not rank very high.

    I have not been to Bolivia, but I have traveled or met people from several Latin American countries. Black Latin countries, i.e, Brazil, Cuba, Panama, Venezuela are a mess. You can google their average IQs. I speak Spanish (and German) so I can read and understand everything.

    The Indian (mestizo) countries like Bolivia, Guatemala, El Salvador are also in horrific conditions.

    Christianity in Bolivia is not doing too well. Evo Morales, the indigenous Indian president, follows pagan Indian practices. He believes in Cuchi-Cuchi (nothing to do with Charo).

    Hello Attilathehen,

    I checked the IQ website you referred to (https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country) and it mentions a Bolivian IQ of 87 indeed. This convinced me that you did not necessarily mean to insult Bolivians, so I’ll take you follow up seriously (long enough to be taken seriously anyway).
    First I’d like to comment on the Bolivian IQ issue. I don’t know how those IQ numbers of all countries in the world have been determined, but I feel highly suspicious about them. As far as I know, the IQ (Intelligence Quotient) of a person is defined as the quotient of the intelligence of this person and the average intelligence of human beings. The difficulty, of course, is how to measure this intelligence. Many kinds of tests have been developed and the amount of tests already indicates how highly contested this issue is. Just to mention a few issues (though I’m no expert at all on this subject, I happen to have learned a few things about it, out of personal curiosity):
    • How to distinguish between acquired knowledge and intelligence? An IQ-test should be designed in such a way that it wouldn’t matter to test an illiterate or a Harvard professor. After all, one might be extremely bright in spite of never having had the chance to study (a common circumstance in poor countries and Bolivia has always been the poorest country of South-America). Talking about a diversity of people ranging from the last nomadic tribes in the last remaining tropical forests and arctic tundras, all the way to the Harvard professor I already mentioned, this is obviously a very tall (if not impossible) order.
    • Developers of IQ-tests have come across the most unexpected biases, based on cultural, linguistic, etc. differences. A well-known example is that people familiar with a hieroglyphic script (like China and Japan) are much better at solving IQ-questions based on geometry. Another one is that various African tribes don’t fall into the trap of visual deceptions based on the 2D perspective of 3D rectangular shapes (the kind of geometric images with the question: “Which line is longer?”), because they live in the wild and in round huts so their eyes have never been conditioned to the effects of perspective of rectangular shapes.
    These few examples should serve to realize how unreliable IQ-tests can be. They may be fairly accurate to compare western people to a western average, but they can fail miserably under non-western circumstances. So I remain highly sceptical about the data of the website you mentioned.
    To determine the IQ of a person, his/her (somehow measured) intelligence is divided by the average intelligence (the denominator of the quotient on which the IQ is based). That’s why I could state with absolute certainty, that the average IQ of Bolivians (or Christians, or any large group of people) is exactly 100: the average Bolivian IQ, divided by the average Bolivian IQ, (equals 1) multiplied by 100.
    I presume that there is no difference of IQ between the many peoples and nations of our world, until proven otherwise. There might be differences (who knows?), but to calibrate IQ-tests for cultural, etc. differences is very complicated.
    The IQ of persons (estimating me at “well over 115”) and peoples (estimating Bolivians at just 87) seems to be very important to you, but to me, for various reasons, not that much. Poor and illiterate people may be smart and may have a rich and fulfilling social life (people that I have often met in Bolivia and who have impressed me more than most western intellectuals), while rich and highly educated people may be lonely robots dragging themselves from one day to the next with antidepressants.

    As for myself, I was married to a Bolivian woman. But we divorced recently and now I live on my own in this peasant community in the Amazonian foothills of the Bolivian Andes.
    Bolivians, as a remnant of the Spanish colonial era, are mostly catholic. However, strong pre-Colombian pagan beliefs and rituals still remain (which I appreciate highly!): the reverence of the traditional life-giving goddess Pachamama (many people still bring her fire offerings every first Friday of the month and every Friday of August, August being the month of Pachamama).
    When my President Evo Morales got inaugurated, those rituals and offerings to Pachamama were performed just as well. Without them, he would have been just another gringo president; after them he became OUR OWN President (by the way, I don’t always agree with what he does and sometimes he does [in my eyes] plain stupid things, but Evo is OUR President and he’s a whole lot better than just about any previous Bolivian president and any contemporary candidate).
    Surely Evo promotes the coca leaf (for traditional uses and non-cocaine alternatives): before he became President, he was the leader of the coca growers’ union (so what do you expect?)! Evo doesn’t promote cocaine, but he doesn’t criminalize coca-growing peasants either. Evo is looking for non-cocaine alternatives.
    Those peasants don’t have anything to do with the drug trade at all. They just sell their coca crop to the highest bidder and (due to the tremendous prices of cocaine in western contries) coca simply became the most profitable crop to grow (who’s to blame: the Bolivian peasant, barely able to feed and clothe his family?)
    I chew coca leaves myself: daily, practically all day (as is my habit for over a decade now)! I chew about half a pound (a quarter of a kilo) of coca leaves each week. Do you know how much coca leave it takes to produce one gram of cocaine? About 5 kg (10 lb)! This means that me chewing coca leaves (at a rate of half a pound per week), it would take me (10 lb / 0.5 lb/week =) 20 weeks to consume the equivalent of one gram of cocaine. This goes to make clear that chewing coca leaves (a South-American tradition for at least 3,000 years, according to archaeological finds) has about as much to do with snorting cocaine, as drinking a pint of beer instead of a pint of pure (96%) alcohol.
    Finally, I don’t know exactly what you mean with a “cuck Caucasian Christian male”. First, I couldn’t find the adjective “cuck” in any dictionary. And second, I’m not a Christian at all, but a convinced atheist However, rubbing two of my brain cells together, yes, I can see and I agree with Steven’s point that any secular legislation is a poor anchor for universal human rights and moral standards (nowadays, corporations like Monsanto, Shell and Microsoft, can just buy and sell those rights [by buying the necessary politicians, which is common practice already], so we’ve lost our main anchor!).
    On a personal level, I don’t see myself returning to the holy mother church ever again (though I highly appreciated Steven’s points of view!). However, on a societal level I do understand that religion still has an important part to play (as our last bulwark against naked, all devouring, capitalist greed). Maybe, someday, hopefully, we may free ourselves from the shackles of the way we measure our economic progress: the pathetically one-dimensional ruler of GDP, which forces all of us to believe that money is the only thing that matters. Until then (and I say this as a convinced atheist!), religion (any kind of religion for any corner of the world) might still save humanity from utter self-destruction. With that I don’t convert myself again to any kind of religion. I just repeat Seneca’s statement in my initial comment to Steven’s essay (while thinking as a politician) that “god is useful”.

    A "cuck" is a spineless man. It is the short version of the word cuckold.

    So sad that you left the West. But this is what happens when a man leaves his race/religion behind. I will assume that your Bolivian wife was more Amerindian than high-caste Euromestizo or white. This is shown in describing Evo Morales as our president. Your atheism is not a problem because you do respect Christianity. Unfortunately, you have decided to cast your lot with an inferior third world, pagan nation. Also, chewing cocoa leaves is not helping you.

    I don't blame you for not wanting to return to the mother church. Like I said, I left the RCC because I don't accept black/Asian priests-popes. A new church will need to be created. Christianity is the best religion for the Western mind, soul. I am still a Christian but with no church.

    IQ determines everything. Only people with IQs of 90+ can create functioning, civil societies. You are lucky that you live in a country with a drugged population too listless from the drugs to cause you any physical harm.

    This is not the case in countries with blacks/Muslims or other types of Asians.

    "The West has destroyed itself by the focus on the individual, and that is changing."

    First, tens of millions of Americans do not view themselves as "The West" or "Westerners"; they refer to themselves as Americans or citizens of the United States. Likewise, Europeans tend to reference themselves as "English", or "French", or "Italian".

    Second, the focus of the individual has been the linchpin in the development of humanity; it has led to inventions, intellectual achievements, and philosophies.

    Third, you are correct in that increasing numbers of people like yourself, through social media, are virtue signaling the "changes" in the world you and your ilk consider to be frightening. Feel free to initiate your own brand of reforms, and face a lightening rod of criticism and revulsion.

    "Yes, the cucks love “muh freedom” and “muh equality” but they do that because this is the historical trend in politics, toward the Left."

    First, the term "cuck" is devoid of any meaning. It is for the intellectual sterile. Are you that impotent?

    Your desire to install by force a Christian monarchy and/or aristocracy, with patriarchal and social hierarchal underpinnings, is something that most Americans, regardless of race, creed, or religion, would violently oppose.

    What are the inherent problems with creating and implementing this new system? Who would consist of this monarchy and/or aristocracy? Who decides what sect of Christianity (e.g. fundamentalist, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Methodist) would be “required”? How would atheists be dealt with? How would citizens be able to redress their grievances? How would dissent be dealt with by this new "elite"?

    Furthermore, how does one recognize “mental defectives”? What are the metrics involved? Who are deemed to be the “kings” and “lords”? Where is this location of exiles? What would be the response of “leaders” to the exiles if they opposed their designation?

    And, finally, are you an aristocrat? Is your partner in crime Mark Citadel? Why ought "We The People" be coerced to kow tow to your whims?

    More questions than there are answers to this deranged proposal, which strips away at the liberty that it reportedly protects and inherently creates the same problems that it supposedly solves.

    Hello Attilathehen,

    I checked the IQ website you referred to (https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country) and it mentions a Bolivian IQ of 87 indeed. This convinced me that you did not necessarily mean to insult Bolivians, so I’ll take you follow up seriously (long enough to be taken seriously anyway).
    First I’d like to comment on the Bolivian IQ issue. I don’t know how those IQ numbers of all countries in the world have been determined, but I feel highly suspicious about them. As far as I know, the IQ (Intelligence Quotient) of a person is defined as the quotient of the intelligence of this person and the average intelligence of human beings. The difficulty, of course, is how to measure this intelligence. Many kinds of tests have been developed and the amount of tests already indicates how highly contested this issue is. Just to mention a few issues (though I’m no expert at all on this subject, I happen to have learned a few things about it, out of personal curiosity):
    • How to distinguish between acquired knowledge and intelligence? An IQ-test should be designed in such a way that it wouldn’t matter to test an illiterate or a Harvard professor. After all, one might be extremely bright in spite of never having had the chance to study (a common circumstance in poor countries and Bolivia has always been the poorest country of South-America). Talking about a diversity of people ranging from the last nomadic tribes in the last remaining tropical forests and arctic tundras, all the way to the Harvard professor I already mentioned, this is obviously a very tall (if not impossible) order.
    • Developers of IQ-tests have come across the most unexpected biases, based on cultural, linguistic, etc. differences. A well-known example is that people familiar with a hieroglyphic script (like China and Japan) are much better at solving IQ-questions based on geometry. Another one is that various African tribes don’t fall into the trap of visual deceptions based on the 2D perspective of 3D rectangular shapes (the kind of geometric images with the question: “Which line is longer?”), because they live in the wild and in round huts so their eyes have never been conditioned to the effects of perspective of rectangular shapes.
    These few examples should serve to realize how unreliable IQ-tests can be. They may be fairly accurate to compare western people to a western average, but they can fail miserably under non-western circumstances. So I remain highly sceptical about the data of the website you mentioned.
    To determine the IQ of a person, his/her (somehow measured) intelligence is divided by the average intelligence (the denominator of the quotient on which the IQ is based). That’s why I could state with absolute certainty, that the average IQ of Bolivians (or Christians, or any large group of people) is exactly 100: the average Bolivian IQ, divided by the average Bolivian IQ, (equals 1) multiplied by 100.
    I presume that there is no difference of IQ between the many peoples and nations of our world, until proven otherwise. There might be differences (who knows?), but to calibrate IQ-tests for cultural, etc. differences is very complicated.
    The IQ of persons (estimating me at “well over 115”) and peoples (estimating Bolivians at just 87) seems to be very important to you, but to me, for various reasons, not that much. Poor and illiterate people may be smart and may have a rich and fulfilling social life (people that I have often met in Bolivia and who have impressed me more than most western intellectuals), while rich and highly educated people may be lonely robots dragging themselves from one day to the next with antidepressants.

    As for myself, I was married to a Bolivian woman. But we divorced recently and now I live on my own in this peasant community in the Amazonian foothills of the Bolivian Andes.
    Bolivians, as a remnant of the Spanish colonial era, are mostly catholic. However, strong pre-Colombian pagan beliefs and rituals still remain (which I appreciate highly!): the reverence of the traditional life-giving goddess Pachamama (many people still bring her fire offerings every first Friday of the month and every Friday of August, August being the month of Pachamama).
    When my President Evo Morales got inaugurated, those rituals and offerings to Pachamama were performed just as well. Without them, he would have been just another gringo president; after them he became OUR OWN President (by the way, I don’t always agree with what he does and sometimes he does [in my eyes] plain stupid things, but Evo is OUR President and he’s a whole lot better than just about any previous Bolivian president and any contemporary candidate).
    Surely Evo promotes the coca leaf (for traditional uses and non-cocaine alternatives): before he became President, he was the leader of the coca growers’ union (so what do you expect?)! Evo doesn’t promote cocaine, but he doesn’t criminalize coca-growing peasants either. Evo is looking for non-cocaine alternatives.
    Those peasants don’t have anything to do with the drug trade at all. They just sell their coca crop to the highest bidder and (due to the tremendous prices of cocaine in western contries) coca simply became the most profitable crop to grow (who’s to blame: the Bolivian peasant, barely able to feed and clothe his family?)
    I chew coca leaves myself: daily, practically all day (as is my habit for over a decade now)! I chew about half a pound (a quarter of a kilo) of coca leaves each week. Do you know how much coca leave it takes to produce one gram of cocaine? About 5 kg (10 lb)! This means that me chewing coca leaves (at a rate of half a pound per week), it would take me (10 lb / 0.5 lb/week =) 20 weeks to consume the equivalent of one gram of cocaine. This goes to make clear that chewing coca leaves (a South-American tradition for at least 3,000 years, according to archaeological finds) has about as much to do with snorting cocaine, as drinking a pint of beer instead of a pint of pure (96%) alcohol.
    Finally, I don’t know exactly what you mean with a “cuck Caucasian Christian male”. First, I couldn’t find the adjective “cuck” in any dictionary. And second, I’m not a Christian at all, but a convinced atheist However, rubbing two of my brain cells together, yes, I can see and I agree with Steven’s point that any secular legislation is a poor anchor for universal human rights and moral standards (nowadays, corporations like Monsanto, Shell and Microsoft, can just buy and sell those rights [by buying the necessary politicians, which is common practice already], so we’ve lost our main anchor!).
    On a personal level, I don’t see myself returning to the holy mother church ever again (though I highly appreciated Steven’s points of view!). However, on a societal level I do understand that religion still has an important part to play (as our last bulwark against naked, all devouring, capitalist greed). Maybe, someday, hopefully, we may free ourselves from the shackles of the way we measure our economic progress: the pathetically one-dimensional ruler of GDP, which forces all of us to believe that money is the only thing that matters. Until then (and I say this as a convinced atheist!), religion (any kind of religion for any corner of the world) might still save humanity from utter self-destruction. With that I don’t convert myself again to any kind of religion. I just repeat Seneca’s statement in my initial comment to Steven’s essay (while thinking as a politician) that “god is useful”.

    iffen, you can accompany Mr. Chieh in his passage back to China. You can help to make China great again.

    And you can go back to the Caucasus mountains, since you’re Caucasian. Or since you’re Christian, go back to the Middle East, which is where your savior and religion come from.

    So saith the "1/2 ethnically Jewish Anonymous." I recall a comment you made to be me concerning Derbyshire. It was about an article Derb wrote about Macron's older wife. I said that at least his wife was white and not Asian like Derbyshire's China woman. You told me to layoff Derb and his Chinese import. Jewish Sinophilia is well known. Marc Zuckerberg and Prissy Chan are the primary example.
