From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

No Continent for Young Men
by Steve Sailer

September 11, 2019

The death last Friday of Robert Mugabe, the big man of Zimbabwe from 1980 to 2017, is a reminder of the paradox that Africa, the most youthful continent, tends to be ruled by the old.

When Mugabe was finally overthrown two years ago at age 93, he was 75 years older than the median Zimbabwean, who is 18.

Grotesque as he was, Mugabe was not an anomaly: Broadly speaking, sub-Saharan Africa tends toward gerontocratic cultures in which men are deemed to deserve to accumulate power, money, and wives by outliving their rivals.

It’s no continent for young men. …

Increasingly, the young men of Africa are leaving for Europe and North America.

And, as professor Stephen Smith of Duke’s African Studies department notes in his important book The Scramble for Europe: Young Africa on Its Way to the Old Continent, now available in English after causing a sensation in France, there are vastly more who will depart for the First World in the future as the African masses modernize enough to contemplate immigrating.

Read the whole thing there.

    This is karma for slavery and colonialism

    This is nothing to worry about. It just means better food and more diversity and more equality

  2. Andy says:

    One has to consider that Mugabe and people of his age (probably down to those who would be around 75 now) were educated under a colonial educational system which was certainly far better than the current sytem run by Africans. Europeans at the time were quite impressed by some of these colonially educated Africans (Nyerere, Kenyatta, Kaunda).

    White women will, always and I do mean always, back the non-White mass immigration over their own men.

    One need only look at the results from the NC district, where a Democrat came close to taking the district that Republicans have held since 1963. All because suburban White women loathe Trump and Republicans for wanting even a bit of a hold on mass Third World Immigration.

    Darwinian incentives make White men and White women eternal and forever enemies. White men want generally equal access to women roughly equal to themselves, or at least they will mostly gladly settle for this, over a Thunderdome fight for one night with a woman they’ll share with others. White women … they want the Thunderdome fight. Its not THEM against Humungous. Lets you and him fight is the eternal playbook for White women, to a degree Asian women, even Latino women to some degree. Not so African women, who remain unique.

    You could argue Hitler got it all wrong — The Master Race is African. Naturally low IQ and aggressiveness. Poor male cooperation, lots of fighting. Low paternal certainty and low paternal investment. All of that means high male sexiness. You can chart male sexiness inversely to the characteristics that make up a stable and prosperous society in isolation: higher male IQ, low inter-personal violence, delayed gratification, greater male cooperation, greater paternal investment. All the latter are innately repulsive to women, all the former male traits innately attractive.

    When technology is just a commodity, who cares if your cooperative men can make ME 109s or Spitfires if Africans can get a boat Taxi service direct to Europe and get free stuff. They’ll see your ME 109s and Spitfires and raise you 7 kids with local women. Plus all their cousins. And siblings. And other kids by other women. And so on.

    Africans figure it might as well be them laying about, impregnating local European women, while the European men work themselves to death to support said Africans and their new women. European establishments being almost entirely feminized (just look at the FT correspondent staff) its a done deal they support Mass Eat-Pray-Love Africans right at home. All the better to crush their natural and eternal enemy, the beta White male.

    The question is if White men will convert to Islam and use that to crush their enemies (I think not, local Muslims feel themselves the new rulers and don’t want sheep turning into fellow wolves). Or will Vlad Putin figure, might as well be him as a bunch of Africans running and ruling Europe. He’d probably have 90% of European men on board with that — if Putin wants to play conqueror/liberator like Charlemagne.

    I am sure nothing, nothing could go wrong at all with smart, but nerdy White guys being frozen out of everything especially including women.

    Its not as if they could generate WMDs out of stuff like fertilizer. Or could organize to call in a foreign savior like some dude in Russia. Oh no — its always a good bet to figure that the top dog will see “the little men off” ala the British in Malaya in 1941.

    I figure if dweebs and nerds (today’s incels are basically yesterday’s normal dudes) are headed for extinction they’ll gladly see everyone else out with them.

    What other group of people willingly without great violence handed over most of their women to foreigners? And if there is one thing White men are very, very good at it is killing lots of people.

    But hey, women gotta feelz. And feelz uber alles.

  7. I don’t believe the “heroic adventure” stuff. We already know that globalist NGOs are the ones ferrying the Africans across the Mediterranean. Are we to believe that this is the only leg of the journey in which they’ve had their hand? Would similar organizations not be enticing and funding the invaders within the continent itself?

    To some small degree perhaps. More importantly, they will be stealing the tax dollars of working Europeans, especially men, who will be forced to pay enormous amounts to subsidize the Africans’ large numbers of children, the vast majority of whom will have African mothers.

    And to make matters worse, their growing presence will make it ever more difficult for European natives to find affordable homes in neighborhoods that don’t feel like Lagos.

    The immigration policy of our so-called leaders is all so incredibly insane.

    Incidentally my theory is that mass immigration to the West has been enabled, at least in part, by the vast government budget deficits being run by most Western countries. If we actually had to pay the bill for all of this welfare, instead of sticking it to the next generation, then we might have a better appreciation of how much it’s all costing us.

    I meant to add that if the level of government providing the service had greater control over who received the service, there would be even less illegal immigration. If states and municipalities had the option of denying public education and a lot of other benefits to the children of illegal immigrants (since states pay most of the cost of public education), then states and municipalities would be able to compete against each other. You could live in a state with lower taxes that refused public education to the kids of illegal immigrants, or you could live in a higher tax state that pays for their education.

    But the federal government, for no really good reason, and without any real justification in Constitutional law, forces states to educate the children of illegals, and in any case government passes the bill onto the future.

    The end result is that we take in vast numbers of poorly educated immigrants whose welfare we don’t really pay for, since we just put it on the national credit card.

    Steve,

    How do you deal with this stuff day in, day out without becoming angry? You obviously can see what is happening to our civilization, yet you remain somewhat clinically detached. Are you ever tempted to become more politically active like a Pat Buchanan?

  11. @Wilkey

    The immigration policy of our so-called leaders is all so incredibly insane.

    In one sense: of course. Because it’s not sane to welcome one’s own destruction. But in another sense–that of consistently connecting means with ends–it’s entirely sane. Because our ‘ruling class’ has the express intention of wrecking our society and remaking it in its own image, with just that tiny ruling class presiding over the warring masses of the world.

    And the only real obstacle to this would be ‘white awareness’ because no other group has anywhere near the critical mass to oppose them. So the other express goal is to destroy any possibility of that awareness, which their control of the institutions and the media accomplish quite thoroughly.

    Incidentally my theory is that mass immigration to the West has been enabled, at least in part, by the vast government budget deficits being run by most Western countries. If we actually had to pay the bill for all of this welfare, instead of sticking it to the next generation, then we might have a better appreciation of how much it’s all costing us.

    Small consolation at least that the generations which will have to deal with the bill (note I don’t say pay the bill) are the ones most rabidly on-board with the program. “We Hate White People” bleat the Goodwhites. Well, they’re gonna learn something about hate before it’s all over.

    In another thread we’ve had a discussion about just how responsible the brainwashed are for their own brainwashing. I consider it an open question. On the one hand, people have been fed the propaganda since birth. On the other, some of us seem to have surmounted it.

    Smith emphasizes that African immigrants aren’t motivated solely by dire need—most of the migrants are from the upper-income ranges and can set aside thousands of dollars to finance a trip.

    A Somali colleague instructed me never to accept a sob story from an African traveler. If he could fly to North America, he was by definition well-off by the standards of his homeland.

  40. A great article on Rhodesia / Zimbabwe, and all of post-colonial Africa is this by Theodore Dalrymple: https://www.city-journal.org/html/after-empire-12420.html

    It makes this point about the huge social obligations that Africans have. If one member of the family rises to professional prominence, he would still be penniless because his family would start draining money from him. The white doctor and black doctor could live in the same colonial style house, but the African-owned house would rapidly turn into a slum filled with his extended family.

    I would say IQ has a big influence too, since some high IQ Asian countries have high levels of social obligation, and still do well. But those people do even better in more individualistic white countries. You can see social obligation making a difference in more ‘backward’ European countries, with lower economic development and more corruption in the Southern and Eastern parts of Europe… Some in Western Europe idealise the greater family warmth and traditionalism in these countries, but it might come at a cost.

    It has been conjectured that the cold, unforgiving winters of Europe – and even more so in the Ice Age – moulded the European character in terms of genetic selection for the personality traits of cooperativeness, amiability, conscientiousness etc – all psychologically necessary for survival in that harsh environment

    By contrast, sub Saharan Africa never had a climate in which it was necessary to strive for the right to eat and the right to shelter. Hence, the evolutionary pressures were markedly different. Rather than cooperation a certain ruthlessness and aggressivity, belligerence etc were traits which led to reproductive success – rivals had to be destroyed and defeated in order allow kin selection to thrive. Likely this set up its own positive feed back loop. This explains the cult of the old ‘big man’ in Africa – the most ruthless and despotic of the ruthless, the most merciless and bloodthirsty. The Oedipus Complex on steroids as far as young rivals are concerned.
    Likely, also, these selected for character traits explain Afro American social pathologies – from a white point of view – as witnessed in contemporary America.

  47. What about an article on the 9/11 memorializing that “extends and evolves”? A few years of incessant rudeness, blatant disregard for law and morality out of New Yorkers and now we’re to have a day of sacred meditations on how 3k New Yorkers lost their lives nearly 20 years ago. I’m not suggesting those people don’t matter but rather protesting the complete lack of perspective. Countries such as France, England, Spain and Germany have endured numerous terrorist attacks, so many they couldn’t memorialize them all nor select some to remember while ignoring others. Then there’s the issue of the passage of time. Kids who were born in 2001 have graduated high school. Furthermore, I don’t believe Pearl Harbor was being focused on to this extent as late as the early 60s. Eighteen years of repetition of strategies and fear mongering propaganda keep the US trapped in an infinite loop. And all we have to show for it is trillion dollar debt, a rising body count and a surveillance state that probably isn’t going away ever. 9/11 should be a speck of the distant past in our collective rearview mirror not an anchoring point and a rallying cry. Why are we stuck in that moment?

    Take, for instance, the official story that Japan’s national debt represents a world-beating 226 percent of gross domestic product, higher even than that of long-time leader Zimbabwe. Is this figure real? We have no way of independently checking it. All we have the Finance Ministry’s say-so.The Finance Ministry, moreover, has a long-term record of special disingenuousness in misleading the West. Frankly if you believe Japan’s government finances are in this sort of shape, there is a bridge in Brooklyn you might want to buy. In reality, as the French economist Thomas Piketty has pointed out, the official figure has to have been absurdly pumped up by accounting trickery. (If Japan really had incurred anything like Zimbabwe-style debt, it would long ago have suffered Zimbabwe-like inflation. Instead Japan, in a pattern very similar to Switzerland, has enjoyed rock-solid price stability for generations.)

    Yesterday on Rod Dreher’s blog, Caldwell Explains Orban.

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in 2015:

    I think that the phenomenon I’ve just described is no more or less than identity crisis. This seems to be bad news, but it is the first good identity crisis I’ve ever seen. Earlier we have talked about identity crises among ourselves: the Christian identity crisis, or the national identity crisis. But now, Ladies and Gentlemen, we are witnessing the liberal identity crisis. Viewed from the right perspective, the whole issue of asylum and mass migration, the whole problem of economic migration is nothing more than the identity crisis of liberalism. I’ll try to broadly summarize what it consists of. People in general – not only Europeans, but definitely Europeans – want to see themselves as good; but people can define “good” in a wide variety of ways. Liberals also want to see themselves as good. They also have an idea of ​​what it means to be a good person. And liberals can only live with themselves if they see themselves as good people. However, the liberal notion of what is “good”, as I described earlier, only exists at the level of phenomena: freedom of movement, universal human rights, and so on. Now this is producing disastrous consequences. But the particular quality of liberals is that while they want to be good people, they do not want to see their levels of welfare spending and standards of living falling; and so a crisis develops. This is the truly great challenge facing liberalism today: how to see themselves as good people according to their own principles, and at the same time how to protect the standard of living which they have achieved so far.

    I am convinced that it is no longer possible in Europe to both see ourselves as good in the liberal sense and to live in prosperity. I might say that the most dangerous combination known in history is to be both rich and weak. There is no combination more dangerous than this. It is only a matter of time before someone comes along, notices your weakness, and takes what you have. This will definitely happen if you are unable to defend yourself. The liberal philosophy is a result of a Europe which is weak and which also wants to protect its wealth; but if Europe is weak, it cannot protect this wealth.

    [MORE]

    [snip]

    Finally, the fourth thing, which I think follows on from all this. Do not misunderstand me when I put it like this: everyday patriotism. This is not something of an intellectual nature, but a vital instinct, a daily routine: going into a shop and buying Hungarian products; when I want to employ someone, employing a Hungarian. It will not work if we cannot make this an everyday instinct, and if it simply remains a spiritual need for our national-minded intellectuals on the right. It will not work without you, of course, because for something to become everyday, it must be formulated to a high degree, something which can be expressed, and which will give us, its representatives, dignity, strength and self-confidence. But then it must be implemented on a daily basis, as I said: in workplaces, in shops, in conversations, and so on. I do not know in how many areas we have retreated; I do not know where, instead of healthy patriotism, some unrestrained, liberal, confused babble has taken over, and where we ourselves are unable to say why we make the decisions we do, rather than right, patriotic, national everyday ones.

    The bad news is that when we do this, it must be characterized by the following words: modern, cool, trendy, sexy, upmarket. If we also try to cultivate everyday patriotism in language to the same level as that we use when talking to each other here, then the correct etiquette would be for us to all make the sign of the cross and simply look forward to the afterlife. But this is about the young generation. Our generation is fine the way we are, thank you very much, we have survived; but the situation is different for those coming along after us. If we cannot bridge the communication, cultural and other gaps, and if we cannot make everyday nationalism attractive to young people, rather than something chaotic, smelling of bad breath and the radical right, which sends shivers down people’s spines and puts them in a bad mood, if we cannot make it different from this with fresh and youthful language, then this is a battle we will not win. This is the biggest task. I cannot say exactly who are able to do this, because if I could, we would have already done it over the past few years; but the truth is that in this regard we have achieved the least success. We do not speak this language, this culture as we should, and those coming after us are somehow not strong enough or – heaven knows why – not effective enough. In this world, patriotic, nation-based, everyday life instincts, life advice and thoughts – together with the public opinions based on them – are not present in the debate. But we cannot avoid this battlefield, and if we do not rally to the call, it will be decided on the battlefield anyway.

    I’m going to go Intelligent Dasein on this population prediction.

    Although the changing demographics in Japan are real, I’ve recently started hearing that I should “escape” back to the USA while I can from an educated acquaintance. This is a qualitative shift.

    If you want to change opinion in Japan, you start from the top. So I see this dystopianism as the possible vanguard of a change in the way people approach population questions.
    As represented by Abe’s push to increase foreign workers, you can see that the “common knowledge” of “population crash=more immigrants needed” has existed at the top. It is circulating down.

    Japan has been bringing in SE Asians and islanders to fill in population gaps for a long time. Alex Kerr talks about Filipinos brides being imported for bachelor farmers in the Iya Valley in his book Dogs and Demons. And places in the countryside already have bilingual street signs in Japanese and Portuguese because of the Brazilian factory workers. These are case studies. Did they solve the problems they were supposed to or did they just create populations of low-contribution ethnic minorities? You know the answer.

    The point is that some of the same trends pushing elites to import immigrants in the US apply to Japan. AI and robotics could be powerful tools to help deal with labor shortages and would have the added benefit of not being net drains on health and pension systems, not to mention food and fuel scarcity issues. In the country that fetishizes robots and has had high speed trains for 50 years, where is the “man on the moon” program to deal with labor through technology? Is this a failure of confidence? Of vision? Or is it a failure of interest born of the same growth and consumption addiction as the USA?

    The modern world is fundamentally unsustainable. There are only three solutions: (1) fall backwards into agrarianism with lower standard of living, (2) move forward into a future of more advanced technologies with arguably less low standard of living, (3) kick the can down the road via migration and consumption.

    Japan has weathered several population booms and busts in its history, but it has recovered because of human capital and culture. If it comes out on the other side of this bust with permanently altered ethnicity, it is finished.

    Kansai International airport (KIX) hasn’t lost a bag in like 25 years and the high speed train system has run for decades without a catastrophic accident. These are systems run by workers from the lower strata of Japan’s society. They could be run by robots and AI, but they couldn’t be run by ethnic minorities. You can’t run a society on 80 year olds, but you can’t run Japan on non-Japanese either.

    One has to consider that Mugabe and people of his age (probably down to those who would be around 75 now) were educated under a colonial educational system which was certainly far better than the current sytem run by Africans. Europeans at the time were quite impressed by some of these colonially educated Africans (Nyerere, Kenyatta, Kaunda).

    About 10% of the population over 15 in Tanganyika was literate in 1960. The European powers began to put boots on the ground in Tropical Africa around about 1895; most places were declared formally sovereign in 1960. So, the midpoint of their time as dependencies of Europe was around 1927, give or take. I’ve seen some data on school enrollments in Tanganyika in that era. Fewer than 10% of the youngsters of primary school age were enrolled around that time.

    Tropical Africa’s had many failures since 1960. One of their successes has been establishing basic literacy as the mode. Another has been improvements in life expectancy. Life expectancy at birth in Tropical Africa is now about 60 years.

    There’s no doubt that Japan is a prosperous society but it’s also an old society. The example that the author gives that the Japanese increasingly drive Lexuses and not Toyota subcompacts as in the past and travel abroad more is very telling. Old people drive luxury cars and have $ for foreign vacations.

    Japan is not a basket case but it has lost of lot of its edge in many fields. Why is Japan an also ran in the cell phone market? The TV market? The laptop market? Miniature electronics used to be their thing. How did they let the S. Koreans get ahead of them? Sony used to be the king of clever personal electronics. They had no foreign competitors for the Walkman. How did Apple outflank them? How did the Taiwanese (Foxconn) outflank them in laptops? Japan should have been running the huge electronics assembly plants in China, not the Taiwanese. How did the Chinese end up buying out the Japanese LCD manufacturers? Japan was making transistor radios when the Koreans were still getting around in ox carts. This would be like the Mexicans getting ahead of the US in space technology or a Brazilian car company buying Ford.

    Western Europe will do nothing whatsoever but roll over and die in the face of the African invasion. They have been suitably brainwashed into self-loathing, and any populist resistance is crushed — see the Yellow Vests in France. 100 years ago, the army and police probably would have joined with them to take down the government. Now, the soldiers loyal to the power structure smash their own people with nary the blink of an eye. And so it shall go.

    Meanwhile, the Jews who created this mess are very quickly forming alliances with Asians. At some point in the future, the Jews will totally abandon Europe having, at last, destroyed their hated white Goy foes. Probably the financial center of London will be the last to go, though before that it will be a well-armed police state with machine-gun toting Muslim Bobbies keeping the streets of The City safe for the Jewish financiers. Everywhere else will be a third-world slum.

    In America, the Jewish-Chinese-Indian alliance will be the new power structure. What is now a very large Mandarin class of white goyishe kops who help run the Jewish machine and enforce the Jewish political narrative (and who are willingly anti-white against their own kind) is VERY quickly being populated with aspiring Asians who flood out of the Ivies and lesser schools and are filling in the starter slots in media, finance, law, academia, politics, etc. All the Jewish power strongholds.

    It’s still twenty years or so out, but by that timeframe, the power elite in America will clearly be Jewish-Asian, though a lot of Cory Booker and AOC types will still be around as Obama-style figureheads to keep the riff-raff placated. AOC was a total creation of her Indian handler. So yeah, it’s already started.

    And through all this, Jews will increasingly move to Asia and start the cycle all over again.

    Life expectancy at birth in Tropical Africa is now about 60 years.

    But they still have birth rates that would be needed to maintain a population with a life expectancy of 40. This leads to the World’s Most Important Graph. It’s very easy and natural for a woman to produce 4, 5, 6 or more children in a lifetime. Their bodies are programmed for this. Getting fertility down to 2 or fewer children is a big effort and has to be maintained for decades. No one seems to be making a serious effort at doing so in Africa because it would be racist to do this to black bodies or something.

    I was watching a TV show last night about a school that some foreign do-gooder had set up in Rwanda. They showed a bunch of little boys at the school. The boys were cute and well groomed and appeared to be eager to learn. It made you hopeful that development was possible. Then the camera zoomed out and you saw some more boys. And they they zoomed out some more and there were even more. Wall to wall boys as far as the eye could see. Herds of them, swarms of them. Educating all these people is only going to make them even more unhappy because there’s no way that the economy of their country is ever going to provide jobs for all of them. Whatever measures are taken to develop these countries are going to be undone by the massive population increase. Maybe foreign do-gooders can build them 1 school or 10 but their not going to be able to keep up when they need 100 or 1,000 more.

    Japan doesn’t need Vietnamese workers. A racially homogeneous society can overcome almost any obstacle – except permanent invasion (and, yes, immigration is invasion) of another people. First off, Japan’s per capita GDP growth is just fine, not that we should worship at the alter of the great god Economy, but it’s a point that people should understand.

    Second, if some older Japanese don’t get as much care as we in the West would like, too bad. Grandpa not getting a personal nurse isn’t worth destroying your society by bringing in foreigners. Also, maybe it’ll show young Japanese the value of having family around you.

    Speaking of family, yes, Japan has a very low birthrate. So what? Everything is fixable – if you don’t bring in foreigners to destroy your society. (Israel gets this, Jack, as you are well aware.) Let nature take its course. People who don’t want children will slowly leave the gene pool. Those that do want children will have children who by their nature will be more inclined to have children. In addition, those children will have less competition for housing and job and thus will be able to afford . . . more children. The birthrate will rebound.

    Unless, of course, you follow the Jack D recommendation – interestingly, rejected by Israel and not recommended by Israel by Jack D – of inviting foreigner workers into your country. But, but, but, Jack says, I only mean as temporary workers, just like the Turks in Germany or Mexicans working the fields in California. Oh wait, he says, nevermind.

    The power behind Mugabe’s throne (until her Marie Antoinette excesses caused him to be overthrown) was his much younger ex-secretary turned 2nd wife. She only reinforced his dictatorial tendencies and transformed the household of the formerly ascetic socialist leader into a world class consumer of luxury goods (as his country grew poorer and poorer).

    The idea that adding women to the political equation somehow makes things better has not been borne out anywhere on earth. Usually the opposite is true. When women reach positions of power, they seem especially prone to the idea that they and their families and entourages “deserve” special treatment and wealth unavailable to ordinary mortals which leads to corruption. When men steal, at least they know that they are stealing but women always seem to think that they are merely getting what is owed to them (and whatever they are getting is still not enough – the debt can never be repaid in full). Hillary Clinton was a prime example of this. Somehow, “white privilege” is a thing but “powerful woman’s privilege” is not.

    No, it doesn’t take a big effort. People produce fewer children when more of the ones they produce survive, when land tenure arrangements limit bequests subdividing agricultural land, and when they have distractions other than copulating. Every part of the globe outside of Tropical Africa and a half dozen other impoverished loci has experienced a fertility transition during the post-war period, and generally a fairly thorough one. Even Tropical Africa has seen a 30% drop in total fertility rates in the last 40-odd years. Outside of Tropical Africa, there are three countries on the planet where the tfr exceeds 3.9 and about sixteen where it exceeds 2.9; nine of these 19 countries are harmless insular states with small populations overall.

    “It’s no continent for young men. Why Africa is so biased against the young is uncertain. One theory is that in a region besieged by diseases such as malaria, the sexiest attribute in a husband is a strong immune system, which is most convincingly demonstrated by not dying.”

    You mean currently the continent is not for young men to be in the top position of power, Mr. Sailer. Indeed, the majority of African heads of state are between the ages of 55 and 75, which represents a significant gap between policy makers and policy followers.

    About 14 percent are under 40 years of age when it comes to representatives in their parliaments, which actually is on par with the rest of the world. So perhaps it’s no world for young men…

    However, 70 percent of sub-Saharan Africa’s population is under the age of 30. Significant efforts are underway to ensure that the youth will have a seat at the table when it comes to making decisions for their continent. But don’t let the narrative stand in the way of progress.

    “African governments are not terribly careful about collecting vital statistics and even if they were, politics would get in the way of publishing objective censuses.”

    According to Who/Whom?

    “During the first two decades of Mugabe’s rule, Zimbabwe’s highly productive white farmers were largely left unmolested.“

    I wonder why. Does our intrepid author put his pattern recognition skills to the test? Not me, says Bil Keane. Per usual, there must be the proper context how these farmers were highly productive and why they were left unmolested before and during Mo Fo Mugabe’s reign of terror.

    Prior to 1980, Zimbabe’s white minority dominated the landscape—politically, economically, socially. How did they arrive to this magical (dirt) place? Immigration. From 1891 to 1955, the population went from 1500 to 150,000, with black farmland seized and redistributed to white agriculturists. Fortunately, there were (anti-) whites who opposed such harsh, but required measures. In 1947, Harry Meade unsuccessfully opposed the eviction of his black neighbor, but it was to no avail. Another influx of whites arrived from the 1940’s to the 1970’s, ranging from communist refugees to former military personnel in India. This place was a haven white people, who received generous education and healthcare benefits from the government (can we say socialism). Then, that crooked Mugabe pulled the rug from underneath whitey—who had happily established a separate society—and (poof), their privileges disappeared.

    Of course, the white farmers should not be booted off their property; then again, was it their land in the first place? Remember, colonial-era land grabs meant that the nation’s most productive areas was reserved for white people, with black farmers forced onto marginal areas. Tit for tat? Land reform was focused on redistributing white-owned land to black farmers, to correct colonial wrongs, after Muggin’ Mugabe assured citizens that this process would be slow. But by 2000, amid growing discontent, the colorful Mugabe supported forcible land grabs, which received international condemnation.

    Sometimes it really helps to provide a fuller picture rather than a snapshot.

    I will make some noise with real live shrieks and squeals
    Didn’t think I would drown, it’s not neat to sink
    And when I do, how great a trip on this rink a dink-dink”

    “On the Bad Ship, No Bread Crumbs
    It’s a rough trip on the Mare Nostrum
    No boom-boom guns?
    Just sink the damn ships, you Europuns”

    Steve can do the most good by doing what he’s doing now: writing daily columns. It would be a bad move for him to go into politics at a time when his audience is larger than ever.

    I can see Ron going into politics. He’s intelligent and well spoken, and he has enough money. Unfortunately he lacks political acumen. He tends to alienate potential friends, often in the vain hope of winning over potential enemies.

    In any case, the big question is not what Steve is doing. It’s what each and everyone of us is doing. Before you brush your teeth in the morning, recite this question three times: “What am I doing?”

    Yeah, yeah. I’m familiar with the reasons for doing nothing: fear of losing your job, fear of what friends might think, fear of physical attack by Antifa … But there are little things you can do, while keeping a low profile:

    – Don’t subscribe to a newspaper if you dislike its ideological content.

    – Don’t subscribe to cable TV. Yes, many companies will bundle cable TV with Internet and phone services, but there are ways to unbundle.

    – Don’t go to a church that supports causes you don’t believe in. If you’re afraid of standing up in church and denouncing those causes, then just leave.

    – Don’t nod your head in agreement when “friends” say things you disagree with. If you don’t want to disagree, say nothing. Don’t be a passive accomplice.

    – Don’t vote for mainstream conservatives (unless your local candidate is solid on the issues you support). In Canada, DON’T VOTE FOR ANDREW SCHEER. He’s a nice guy, but that’s his big problem. He will be a lame-duck prime minister from his first day of office. VOTE FOR MAXIME BERNIER.

    If one member of the family rises to professional prominence, he would still be penniless because his family would start draining money from him.

    This extends to the village as well. It is _very_ dangerous to be seen as prosperous in Africa. The children learn at a young age–everything of value must be hidden.

    I don’t make any recommendations to the Japanese, nor are they asking me.

    Israel, BTW, has lots of guest workers. Every elderly Holocaust survivor lady has a Filipino caretaker paid for by her rich children who don’t want her living with them. Not to mention Chinese agricultural workers and Africans who snuck in before they beefed up the fences, etc. The idea that American Jews are hypocritical because they don’t support the same policies for America that they support for Israel is idiotic. First of all, Liberal American Jews don’t set Israel’s immigration policies. Yes,if it was up to them, the politics of Israel would exactly match the politics of the Upper West Side, but it’s not up to them. It’s hard to say whether they hate Trump or Netanyahu more (and the feeling is mutual).

    2nd, Israel is not at all the ethnic monostate straw horse that people are beating here. Israel is WILDLY diverse, not just among Jewish groups (who themselves range from bearded Hasidim to tatooed hipsters to Ethiopian tribesmen to blond Russians who aren’t really Jewish at all) but because it has large non-Jewish minorities of Arabs and Druze, not to mention all the immigrant workers.

    If you are looking for an ethnic monostate, you have to look at somewhere like Poland, where, thanks to the highly thorough Germans, Poland is now ethnically pure beyond the wildest dreams of the pre-war Polish nationalists. Although even that is starting to fray around the edges – the last time I was in Warsaw I passed a Nigerian restaurant and had lunch at a restaurant run by a Korean woman whose family ended up in the Soviet Union (to this day N. Korea sends guest workers for cash). The restaurant was smack in the middle of what used to be the former Warsaw Ghetto.

    2nd this has more to do with the dangers of a polygamous society to young men than a recommendation for rule by females as Rosie makes. The article doesn’t mention that the women of these sects are unhappy with the arrangement. In fact I think many women would prefer to have a share of a rich and powerful older man’s time rather than an exclusive arrangement with a young and poor loser.

    That is not how statistical polling works. You do not ask all 30 million people individually to find out how they feel and then take an average! The pollster gathers a random representative sample and computes the average of the large sample. The law of large numbers is used to claim that the poll average is very close statistically to the true average. Similarly, when you claim “this room is 72 degree Fahrenheit” you have not measured all five hundred trillion air molecules in the room — you used the law of large numbers and a thermometer to approximate the true population value!

    It’s the exact opposite.

    The positive feedback centralization of social policy is an expansion of the feminine principle. It is driven first by feminized men, such as kings who are shielded by “champions” such as “The King’s Champion” from single combat and, ultimately, by the police. Then, these feminized men use their high social status as faux “alphas” to sexually appeal to the baser instincts of women. They give women power over the men in their lives — men who are powerless to challenge the high status men to single combat. All that the baser instincts of women see are cowardly betas putting up with abuse from everyone, including the women, who then treat them as children at best. This expands the feminine principle of hearth and home to the public square, with the result that social policy is increasingly centralized and feminized.

    For a woman a small interest in a high wattage alpha male to finance and fertilize her makes sense but the reverse certainly is not true. So for society at large, it sucks, since males and females exist in roughly equal ratios. It’s also generally a bad arrangement for the kids.

    Ghetto black females are financed by the state and fertilized by random pseudo alpha males. Detroit and St. Louis are the result. I think a previous commenter got it right: when we collapse whoever takes us over will simply round up and dispatch the ten or twenty percent of underclass black males that cause the trouble (most underclass blacks are too fat and lazy, they just cash welfare and eat). The remainder will be offered more gibs to be sterilized or leave the country.

    The smarter and harder working blacks in America could be a big asset for the Chinese as they take Africa over, since they are far smarter than average SSA’s and could make a manageable oversubclass. They still have greater resistance to African diseases then Chinese or whites.

    Unfortunately, conservatives have displayed a remarkable inability to do even that. They are poorly organized and, from what I’m seeing, resistant to organizing any kind of significant push back even in their own personal lives; several Unz commenters have remarked, in shock, at this state of affairs. I think, perhaps, conservatives are trying to preserve a system that has lost legitimacy in the modern world as circumstances have changed – individual liberty. You can’t preserve a philosophy of liberty and personal space against an relentless, fanatical enemy determined to deny you both because they think you are a bad person deserving of punishment merely for existing.

    Conservatives also consider themselves good people. As such, they are desperate to be considered “good people” by others, including the radical left. That’s a mistake. Many leftists are dangerous, hate-filled authoritarians, the kinds of people who gleefully shot princess Anastasia and thought it “thrilling”. Normie: How could they do that? It was so wrong. Well, bad people deserve punishment, so nothing is immoral when punishing “bad people”. Right?

    Although, maybe I’m misreading the situation. Gillette suffered an $8 billion dollar loss after their offensive anti-male ads. That’s promising. With hope, it will continue. But I suspect not. Conservatives are hampered by morality and blind patriotism. Fundamentally, they are desperate to be considered good people by their enemies. But they shouldn’t care. Their enemies view them as bad people, so conservatives / normies should be willing to return the favor in kind.

    Conservatives also aren’t so good at thinking outside the box, either. Even some of the former alt-right types I’ve read recently have adopted a policy of sitting back and doing nothing. That’s foolish. Sure, street demonstrations won’t accomplish anything and the establishment will try co-opting your efforts, but doing nothing assures defeat. Historically, when systems collapse, the party that sowed the seeds of a new order best beforehand came out on top in the aftermath. Lenin and other communists laid the foundations for the Russian Revolution before the disaster of WWI; same with Germany’s National Socialists before the Great Depression; etc. Probably your best bet is to promote a well-articulated and plausible alternative to the reigning order; discrediting gatekeepers on the right will also help. Once that order loses legitimacy – maybe during a currency crisis, debt crisis, or a major war – you can seize power and impose a new order.

    I also think running for office under the current paradigm is probably a lost cause. Doing so implicitly requires participants to adhere to established rules that won’t rock the boat in the end, regardless of who gets elected. If, in contrast, Unz ran on a platform in California of 1) breaking up north California from south California OR 2) getting rid of California’s white patriarchy of Gavin Newsom and the Bay Area* by stoking lower-class white, Hispanic, and black resentments (an anti-Bolsonaro but with similar tactics), maybe some fireworks happen.

    *Subsidized housing in rich white, left-wing areas; abolishing upperclass, non-religious, private schools and integrating public schools with white liberals through forced busing; increased minimum wage; higher taxes on corporations that are in no danger of leaving California (Hollywood) with the explicit aim of providing lower cost college education; maybe a jobs program for the poor/middle-class through expanding the California National Guard; forced public transportation systems in upper-class areas, justified with their own rhetoric on climate change; etc. Until conservatives are willing to abandon philosophical principle for the opportunity to ruin their white rivals and rub it in their faces, nothing will change. You should be raising their taxes, not cutting them.

    The idea that adding women to the political equation somehow makes things better has not been borne out anywhere on earth. Usually the opposite is true. When women reach positions of power, they seem especially prone to the idea that they and their families and entourages “deserve” special treatment and wealth unavailable to ordinary mortals which leads to corruption. When men steal, at least they know that they are stealing but women always seem to think that they are merely getting what is owed to them (and whatever they are getting is still not enough – the debt can never be repaid in full). Hillary Clinton was a prime example of this. Somehow, “white privilege” is a thing but “powerful woman’s privilege” is not.

    The annals of Chinese history, having been written by dead yellow men, are replete with the dangers to the throne posed by grasping empresses and concubines and the associated train of in-laws. While it’s unclear how much of this was real, given the homily-driven narrative of Chinese historical accounts, it was a recurrent theme.

    Fingleton is an idiot, an economic illiterate who can’t read or speak Japanese despite living there for 40 years.

    Japan’s debt is in yen, a currency it controls, and the debt is financed heavily by domestic savings. It has high levels of production hence trade surpluses.

    A lot of Zim’s debt is denominated in foreign currency, which it does not control. Meanwhile, production has declined, leaving lower domestic savings to finance debt, and it has trade deficits. Production has declined, money supply has increased, and Zim currency has flowed out from trade deficits and declined relative to foreign currency, thus there’s been inflation. This is nothing like Japan’s case.

    Btw, Israel is possibly the one country that I’d bet could actually make a guest worker program work because, you know, it’s official policy and what’s promoted by its schools and leaders is that Israel is the Jewish states so you can come and work but then you have to get fuc* out!

    The idea that American Jews are hypocritical because they don’t support the same policies for America that they support for Israel is idiotic.

    Seriously, you can dislike me, but at least show me the respect of not pissing on my head and tell me it’s raining.

    First of all, Liberal American Jews don’t set Israel’s immigration policies. Yes,if it was up to them, the politics of Israel would exactly match the politics of the Upper West Side, but it’s not up to them.

    That’s utter BS. Outside of the very rare exceptions (I’m talking about Asians in the NBA rare), American Jews are massively and overtly supportive of Israel. It’s their homeland, after all. They may not like Netanyahu, but they sure as shit love Israel. And they never bring up Israel’s immigration policy, ever.

    Upper West Jews have enormous influence in politics, media, finance and academia. Upper West Jews have enormous interest in Israel. It would follow that they’d be making a huge stink (because they are extremely good at making huge stinks) about Israel’s policy of being an ethno-state if they disapproved. Yet crickets.

    You always mess with my head, Jack. You’re obviously bright, well-read, well-traveled and often thoughtful. But you have a blind spot that absolutely terrifies me. I could see you rationalizing the end of my people. I guess I know how many Jews feel about gentile whites.

    In business, having a decent product is not enough. You have to have sales, marketing, customer support, etc. If you want to sell you product in a foreign market you have to do all of those things in a foreign language and tailor your way of doing them (as well as the product itself) to the foreigner’s cultural expectations. The Japanese seemed to have grasped this instinctively and the Germans too. Russians for some reason can never seem to learn how to do this, nor do they seem particularly interested in learning how either. Russians are not dumb people but their mind does not run in a salesman’s groove. Sometimes it appears as if they are completely indifferent to making a sale and sure as hell are not going to change their way of doing things to please you. If you beg them enough they may take your money but that’s as far as they will go.

    The colonizers built railroads for the purpose of extracting raw materials. It was not an extensive and expansive system. Constructing paved two and four lane roads to link urban areas with the rural environs was a general after thought, considering that African ownership of vehicles was virtually non-existent. Had you done some NOTICING, you would have discovered four major phases of road provision and transport services development in colonial Africa can be identified:

    1. A colonial phase, where the emphasis was on accessing major export producing areas.

    2. A post-Independence phase (1960s to 1980s) when newly independent governments began to shape their own road and transport policies.

    3. A structural adjustment phase from the mid 1980s, with the IMF and the World Bank using their influence to bear on local policy and conditions.

    4. A new phase of (mostly) more positive change in the 21st century, with developments attracting new donors and investors, with impact on both road infrastructure investment and the transport services sector.

    Fingleton is arguing that the Japanese are treacherous liars. You seem to think they are just in the grip of an unclear language and difficult writing system. You probably believe that story about the attack on Pearl Harbour (not their first sneak attack on a European power) being made before declaration of war because they were slow getting it typed up in the Embassy.

    Piketty is a clever fellow, if you read French you should get his latest book.

    https://boingboing.net/2019/09/12/brahmin-left.html

    This part of the book looks empirically at the reasons that left-wing, or social democratic parties have gradually transformed themselves from being the parties of the less-educated and poorer classes to become the parties of the educated and affluent middle and upper-middle classes. To a large extent, traditionally left parties have changed because their original social-democratic agenda was so successful in opening up education and high-income possibilities to the people who in the 1950s and 1960s came from modest backgrounds. These people, the “winners” of social democracy, continued voting for left-wing parties but their interests and worldview were no longer the same as that of their (less-educated) parents. […]

    To simplify, the elite became divided between the educated “Brahmins” and the more commercially-minded “investors,” or capitalists. This development, however, left the people who failed to experience upward educational and income mobility unrepresented, and those people are the ones that feed the current “populist” wave. Quite extraordinarily, Piketty shows the education and income shifts of left-wing parties’ voters using very similar long-term data from all major developed democracies (and India)

    Incidentally my theory is that mass immigration to the West has been enabled, at least in part, by the vast government budget deficits being run by most Western countries. If we actually had to pay the bill for all of this welfare, instead of sticking it to the next generation, then we might have a better appreciation of how much it’s all costing us.

    True. George Soros even advocated that the EU use its (hitherto unused) AAA credit rating to pay for mass Third-World immigration!

    Nobody wants to do a cost-benefit analysis, because of course the benefits (lower wages, higher return on investment) are privatized while the costs are socialized.

    The EU wanted to fine member countries who did not take their “share” of migrants. The proposed sum was €250,000 per migrant not taken. Either this was intended as a fine (which indicates a lack of respect for member countries) or it was a calculation of the net value of a Third-World migrant as a negative quarter of a million Euros!

    Instead, let’s have an evidence-based discussion of immigration, Jewish power, the Deep State, and the parts of our history that have been shoved down the memory hole. Ask why things are the way they are. Never stop questioning. As the readership of this site grows, the ideas discussed here will enter the mainstream.

    The Stormer is a joke site, and the people who freak out over it don’t understand that they are the joke.

    . All that will happen ia she will take things personally (and in a roundabout way prove the idea that women are less rational than men).

    Yes, when you denigrate a person’s group, they usually take it personally. There is, of course, nothing whatsoever that is irrational about this. White men take it personally when they are held responsible for anything and everything that is wrong with the world, and they are right to do so.

    Good god no. Women prefer the big man system: it is actually the result of their power. Same with polygamy.

    You know nothing about what women prefer, troll.

    For example, why are the Swiss working on robotic construction rather than the Japanese? All those temporary Chinese construction workers? Not needed. And if they don’t come to Japan, they can’t hook up with a Japanese gal and then stay.

    Ah, so sense can be made of Piketty, all that is required is that one read French, which is to say, give up on life. No thanks.

    What could federal agents and ADL natterers possibly know about “strategy”?
