From Newsweek, a semi-existent periodical:

Here’s U. of Toronto press release the Newsweek article was based on:

Perceived loss of social status linked to rising mortality rate among white Americans
November 25, 2019 , University of Toronto

A new study led by University of Toronto public health researchers suggests rising short-term mortality rates among white Americans “seems driven principally by anxiety among whites about losing social status,” even though there is no evidence that they are in fact worse off.

“This is a startling finding,” said Arjumand Siddiqi, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health and lead author of the study.

“For perhaps the first time, we’re suggesting that a widespread population health phenomenon can’t be explained by actual social or economic status disadvantage, but instead is driven by a perceived threat to status.”

Black mortality rates have been higher than white mortality rates in the United States since the beginning of the country’s history. However, since 1999, the mortality fortunes of working-age whites have undergone a reversal while Black mortality rates—like mortality rates of all other groups and all high-income countries of Europe and North America—continue to fall.

The paper, titled “Growing sense of social status threat and concomitant deaths of despair among whites,” is published in the December 2019 edition of Population Health, and examined administrative mortality and social survey data from 2000 to 2016. …

“The anxiety of whites is coming from a misperception that their dominant status in society is being threatened, which is manifesting in multiple forms of psychological and physiological stress,” said Siddiqi, who also holds an academic appointment at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

As we all know, disabled ex-coalminers in Kentucky have White Privilege, unlike Arjumand Siddiqi who has dual appointments at the U. of Toronto and the U. of North Carolina.

These psychological and physiological stressors are resulting in more “deaths of despair”—due to alcohol consumption, opioid use, drug overdose and suicide—and, to a lesser extent, rising chronic disease, including hypertension and obesity, according to the study. This widespread decline in health status is actually consistent with—and may even reinforce—a despair-based explanation for worsening white health, explains Siddiqi.

“Status is a major predictor of health so our team hypothesized that it was a perception among whites that Blacks are economically catching up to them, when, in fact, income inequality and other socioeconomic factors continue to affect Black Americans more unfavorably,” said Siddiqi.

Whatever you do, don’t ask about the status in North America of people with names like Siddiqi. This is a Black and white question, not one with any shades of brown involved, not at all.

Another important finding uncovered by Siddiqi and her research team is the association between rising white mortality and a growing share of Republican voters. From 2000—when white mortality started to rise—to 2016, their country-level calculations suggests there was an increase in the proportion of Republican voters.

Can you imagine the gall of white people who vote for a protest candidate to protest their neighbors dying of despair?

Anyway, like I’ve been saying for years, the White Death of the 21st Century is pretty reminiscent of American Indians and of Russians in the 1990s: defeated peoples.

    One has to admit that the Left was always obsessed with questions of relative (instead of absolute) income – as if real life people did nothing else than compare their own lives with the lives of others (do I live better or worse than others?). Whereas in fact people are much more prone to compare their life today with their life in the past (do I live better or worse than I lived last year?)
    The Left clung to this idea even at the times when they tried to mobilize the white working class for their own political schemes – so it is no wonder that they now use it to debase the white working class.

  8. So, what’s the ‘Treat’ they mention in that tweet?

  9. In spite of all the bellyaching by feminists about how women are discriminated against the reality is that they use 30-40% more health care throughout all stages of their lives and they live 5 years longer then men. Its not just when they are pregnant. Women are basically hogging all the health care resources in this country while men are getting the table scraps. Women have far better outcomes in almost every measurable category. On top of men paying the same amount for their health insurance premiums and they also pay something like 75% of the state and federal income taxes.

    Every time I hear Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, and Amy Klobuchar kvetch about men, I want to puke.

  15. Mr. Blank says:

    Can you imagine the gall of white people who vote for a protest candidate to protest their neighbors dying of despair?

    Precisely. One of the things the elites miss is that the groundswell of support for Trumpism or Trump-style politics isn’t coming from the actual people who are dying “deaths of despair.” Those people don’t vote. The support is coming from the people around them who actually have something on the ball and are having to deal with the fallout.

    I was reminded of this on Thanksgiving when I spoke to some of my relatives — they are responsible and self-sufficient, but are having to clean up the messes left by other relatives who are lost in a fog of drug addiction and sexual license. I know the relatives they are talking about: Those folks (the ones lost in the fog) are only capable of talking in a jumbled mess of left-wing cultural cliches about “living their best life” and whatnot.

    Anyway: The relatives I was talking to — the ones who have something on the ball — are all fervent Trump supporters. They are way more pro-Trump than I am.

    It reminds me of how the black people who are the most loyal Democrat voters are the conservative, elderly black ladies who live modest, proper lives and regularly attend church. That used to puzzle me, but as American politics shifts, it’s starting to make more sense: Those black ladies ignore everything else and just want someone who forthrightly backs “their people,” full stop.

    In a country where whites are just another minority, is it any surprise that conservative, responsible whites are going down the same path?

    …the White Death of the 21st Century is pretty reminiscent of American Indians and of Russians in the 1990s: defeated peoples.

    This global(ist) War on White America(ns) needs a Saileresque protologism , as in the way Mr Sailer coined ‘Merkel’s millions’ (and variants thereof) to pithily reify an ongoing phenomenon which the elite governing/intelligencia globalist class(es) doesn’t want easily grasped and catchily expressible in the minds and mouths of ‘defeated’ white Americans, fearful of it sparking resistence, and revolt.

  17. So, I’ve had a quick look through the article, the full text of which is available here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S235282731830291X

    It appears that these researchers did not relate measures of anxiety to mortality data at all. Rather, they discuss other people’s work which showed significant links between survey measures of anxiety and the Republican vote share. In their own analyses, they then show significant links between the Republican vote share and mortality data.

    I would call that pretty indirect.

    No:

    Reflecting a demographic shift, 109 U.S. counties have become majority nonwhite since 2000

    From 2000 to 2018, 109 counties in 22 states, from California to Kansas to North Carolina, went from majority white to majority nonwhite – that is, counties where non-Hispanic whites are no longer the majority, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data.

    https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2019/08/21/u-s-counties-majority-nonwhite/

    By 2055, the U.S. will not have a single racial or ethnic majority. Much of this change has been (and will be) driven by immigration. Nearly 59 million immigrants have arrived in the U.S. in the past 50 years, mostly from Latin America and Asia. Today, a near-record 14% of the country’s population is foreign born compared with just 5% in 1965.

    Less than half of US children under 15 are white, census shows

    For the first time, non-Hispanic white residents now make up less than half (49.9%) of the nation’s under age 15 population, newly released 2018 U.S. Census Bureau estimates show. The new data highlight the increasing racial diversity of the nation’s overall population, for which non-Hispanic whites now comprise only slightly more than three-fifths (60.4%) of all residents. But the fact that white children under 15 have already become a minority in their age group puts an exclamation point on the fact that the nation’s diversity is percolating from the “bottom up” as the white population ages.

    The US white majority will soon disappear forever

    Since the settlement of Jamestown in 1607 and the start of the Colonial period, the U.S. has been predominantly white.

    But the white share of the U.S. population has been dropping, from a little under 90% in 1950 to 60% in 2018. It will likely drop below 50% in another 25 years.

    White nationalists want America to be white again. But this will never happen. America is on its way to becoming predominantly nonwhite.

  19. The perception that you’re losing status to other whites is a bit more important. For decades now, middle class whites have been told they’re going extinct. Couple that with “we had to destroy your livelihoods to save ours”, a general media assault on the working class, and on anywhere not Cloud World, we get the rising death rate for whites.
    That this is caused by blacks is an example of Derb’s “blackity-blackity, black-black-black”.

    And it won’t stop until they’re all gone, or at least enslaved.

    Completely right. I remember studies about the demographics of American Indian peoples where they’re still a majority or significant minority, Peru and Bolivia. Their birth rate & all statistical variables good for a collective plummeted until early 20th C, where due to a confluence of factors, hope appeared among them. Optimism resulted in higher birth rates & most desirable demographic data.

  25. @syonredux

    Without war, this is a possible outcome. Just, with 15% in Mexico & less than 40% in Brazil- whites rule these countries.

  26. What caught my eye from the article is the phrase “rising short-term mortality rates.”

    Is there a new kind of mortality that is only “short-term”?

    So, in the long term, you become undead? Kinda like zombies?

    (Yes, I know that in medical studies you have “short-term” mortality, deaths soon after the treatment, vs. “long-term” mortality, those who die much later. That sort of medical study is not what the article is about.)

    The “Irrepressible Conflict:” Slavery, the Civil War and America’s Second Revolution

    The Confederate government sought to provide for the army by stealing from the poor through a process called “impressment,” depicted skillfully in the film Free State of Jones, based on the book by Bynum. Indeed, thousands of poor Southern whites opposed attempts by the Confederacy to steal their property. Industrial accidents were also extremely common as Southern industrialists cut costs to feed the war machine. Factory explosions killed hundreds in places like Jackson, Mississippi. In Virginia, a cartridge-manufacturing plant exploded, “scattering workers like confetti.” Child labor was especially common. Wrote one mother to Jefferson Davis in 1862:

    “It is folly for a poor mother to call on the rich people about here. There [sic] hearts are of steel. They would sooner throw what they have to spare to their dogs than give it to a starving child.”

    For Steve,

    Watching a couple of NFL games with the family on television yesterday, I saw a recurring Nissan commercial featuring 3 couples. One black couple, and two others with black men and dream-girl beautiful white women. One cannot believe that this is not some form of psy-op meant to instill a sort of psychological resignation in young white men. One could see why some of the loner types bereft of friends and family support might get an inaccurate impression about being unwanted and discarded by society if all images are drumbeat-negative toward his social prospects like that commercial. It aired several times. The lovely white girls had ecstatic looks on their faces in the commercials.

    Who makes these commercials?

  38. Defeated people? White middle-class as a whole seem to be thriving. Marriages abound. Infants are often seen. White lower-class in the city where I live, Austin – about as many as Hispanics and blacks – live in mixed neighborhoods outside the city core and take the bus to work in droves. Local Hispanics and blacks and low-class whites work. Homeless in Austin total about 2500 in a population of over a million, but are very visible, seem to be made up of ~30% lower-class whites, >40% blacks young and old and fewer Hispanics than one would expect.

You will not be aware of the same type deaths and rates in the Highlands after the imposition of laws meant to exterminate virtually all expression of Scottish culture.

    America’s great spaces have meant that when WASPs clamped down in that way on one area, non-WASP whites could move top another area and make a life without dealing with despair every day, despair from knowing what the Elites mean for you and yours.

If they’d just become alcoholics, like their grandparents used to do, they’d have been fine. The older guys eating shotguns aren’t “defeated” either, most have terminal health conditions that in the old days would’ve killed them, but through the advances in medical science are keeping them alive too long. White men, real White men, don’t want to be sitting around in a dirty diaper waiting for some foreigner to wipe their butt.

    Hi PhysicistDave. I too wondered what a “short-term mortality rate” is. Mortality rate is defined as “the number of deaths per given unit of population over a given period of time”. So “short-term” must mean that the “period of time” over which the deaths are counted is short. For example, over the past year 9 whites per 1000 whites have died, while 10 years ago only 8 whites per 1000 whites died over a one-year time span.

    The US white majority will soon disappear forever

    Forever is a long time. No one knows what the future holds. History is not linear and things can and do change in ways in which we cannot predict.

    Certainly in the near term what they write is true. And chances are if things turn in the other direction, we on this blog won’t be around to see them. But our lifetimes are pretty short in comparison to how history unveils itself.

    Who knows what will happen. Will this nation fragment into smaller nations based upon ethnic lines? Will there be war, economic devastation or something else that either kills or encourages non European peoples to leave? Will Europe have a bad outcome for Europeans causing millions of them to flee to North America?

    I’m sure the muslims at some point told the Spanish that they would always rule Spain. I’m sure there were Spaniards who told their fellow countrymen to just accept it because local rule has disappeared forever.

    Well forever turned out to be 700 years. Less of course for many regions of Iberia which were liberated centuries earlier. But 700 years is quite a long time. As a comparison, it has just been 412 years since Jamestown Colony!

    How do you think the islamic world felt in 1919? The Christians were now again occupying their lands. Those Christian Europeans had burgeoning populations, industrialized societies and war making capability unknown in the muslim world. They had even conquered the air with aircraft capable of dropping bombs.

    Yet less than a century later and the islamic world is on the cusp of actually establishing the foothold to conquer all of Europe that they have been attempting since their original invasion of Spain.

    History is not linear and things can and do change.

    On a related note, as a commenter stated on another thread regarding the drug use deaths of American whites…”I looked back at the previous White Death tagged posts, and the graph shows that this isn’t happening in the other Anglosphere countries and Western Europe. As this appears to be directly linked to opiates, is the system of having state-run healthcare the key differential? Without the profit motive to push more pills.”

    Wow, imagine that. Something to ponder. I mean, Mr. Sailer, you endorse government subsidies for family formation, so why not national health care? Do it to save White People!

    Source –> http://socialismtoday.org/archive/55/drugs.html

    “Drug dependency and addiction affects all classes in society but heroin addiction, in particular, is primarily devastating working-class communities. The main contributory factor for substance abuse is the poverty, alienation and abusive nature of capitalism. Until this is eradicated there always will be people trying to escape the misery that capitalism causes. It is no accident that the communities worst affected by legal and illegal drugs are the most deprived working-class areas plagued by poverty, unemployment, a lack of facilities, overcrowded schools, crime, etc. However, we do have a responsibility to fight for more immediate measures that can alleviate the problems in working-class communities. The approach of successive governments has been to deal with illicit drug taking as a law enforcement issue. This has failed miserably. Drug abuse will remain a fact of life until we successfully change society into one where the economy can be planned and run in the interests of people not profit, where young people can enjoy a future free from poverty, with access to free education, good jobs and wages, and decent, affordable accommodation. Therefore, we have to link the campaign for socialist change to a fight for more harm-reduction measures. The only way of achieving this is to tackle drug abuse as a health issue.”

    “Anyway, like I’ve been saying for years, the White Death of the 21st Century is pretty reminiscent of American Indians and of Russians in the 1990s: defeated peoples.”

    Another false premise, Mr. Sailer. American whites are not “defeated peoples”, as evident by their high IQ’s and high time preferences. And, of course, you offer an apples to oranges comparison–American Indians back then were systematically exterminated by Europeans for their land and resources. American whites today are not experiencing that specific course of action.

    Neither short-term nor long-term economic factors can themselves account for rising white mortality, because parallel trends (and more adverse levels) of these factors were being experienced by blacks, whose mortality rates are not rising.

    Um, perhaps poor black people were already suffering in dysfunctional communities, and the new even in the US is that white working folks are now being subject to the same economic stresses?

  77. First of all, white death rates will be rising regardless of the opioid crisis, because the Boomer generation is starting to die off, and they outnumbers other whites.

    Second thought: I really still don’t have much sympathy for whites who are moping around about life, strung out on drugs. Just because your life is hard, doesn’t mean turning to opioids is a good idea. Say no to drugs. “Clean up” your community from drug dealers. I think the opioid crisis stems from a lack of religion, and strong father figures. Drug users disgust me and the faster they die, the better.

    Why do parents accept drug use among their children? Why do whites think it’s normal to get sloshed on booze every weekend (this leads to alcoholism).

    Articles like these should motivate whites who are feeling down and out. Look, the ptb want you genocided and dead. And by overdosing on drugs, you are helping them win! Man up and stand up to globohomo. Just because you’re poor doesn’t mean you have to dress like trash, act like trash, and take drugs.

    Not if you’re waiting for the Magic Ballot Box to do it for you.

    Remember back when – assuming you’re old enough – you read your American history as a schoolboy? Was this country forged by snarky editorials from condescending orcs and hottentots – or by meek and compliant submission to the star-chamber rulings of a hostile kritarchy set into place by a far-off king?

    You’re damn straight it wasn’t. You rise on and under your own power, not by timorously awaiting official permission to stand on your own two feet. When Americans discover, or better yet, remember, that power is not carefully apportioned, but seized……maybe then we can start to flip this script before it’s too late.

    And don’t worry overmuch about twenty or thirty million uninvited outlanders…. whether imperious Siddiqis here to sign the orders to open the gulags for us, or face-tattooed cholos here to enforce those directives. They all have homelands of their own and the sooner they’re repatriated to them, the sooner reason and civility can preside once more….of course, the most stubborn and deeply-burrowed pests are the most destructive termites of all. Happily, they all enjoy dual citizenship – going home would at least free them from the constant fear of rising anti-Semitism among their subjects. Besides, China presents them with an even-juicier plum than the US – a fresh host body just waiting to be infiltrated and sucked dry. That, too, would prompt a rapid American renaissance.

She was ordered to teach inmates Chinese.“It was forbidden to speak with the prisoners, forbidden to laugh, forbidden to cry and forbidden to answer questions from anyone,” she said. “There were almost 20 people in a room of 16 square meters. “There were cameras in their rooms, too, and also in the corridor. Each room had a plastic bucket for a toilet. Every prisoner was given two minutes a day to use the toilet, and the bucket was emptied only once a day.” “While they were raping her they checked to see how we were reacting. People who turned their head or closed their eyes, and those who looked angry or shocked, were taken away and we never saw them again. The inmates were forced to recite slogans such as: “I love China,” “Thank you to the Communist Party,” “I am Chinese” and “I love Xi Jinping”.

Non whites and even white females have the edge. No one disputes that or even thinks it is somehow unfair. Tough shit white boy.

    Also, now a dangerous political crusade by collectivist leftists. Trump was elected by middle class and working class whites and others who identify with populism and his anti elite rhetoric. So what happened? Instantly, and now well known publicly due to Deep State document exposures, the elite leftists and Soros globalists immediately began a coup attempt. Stealth secret police spying outsourced globally and promoted by endless lying and dissembling. Hillary openly claiming that she “won” the election. After Russiagate flopped, we have the Ukrainian clown circus impeachment. Not to mention the steady drumbeat of open propaganda attacks and nonsensical justifications for thwarting everything Trump has tried to do to fulfill his campaign promises. Much of it run by the FBI, CIA and other nomenklatura outfits.

    So like working class Brits who voted for Brexit but haven’t (somehow) gotten it yet, after years, we have elected presidents who if supported by working class whites are denied their ability to carry out policies they campaigned on. By “any means necessary” as Lenin & Co. used to say.

    All money printing is not the same.

    Kyle Bass is either ignorant or being misleading here. Remember, Bass is the one who bet big in the early 2010s that Japan was facing imminent bankruptcy because it was borrowing too much money like Greece, unaware of the basic fact that Greece did not have a sovereign currency and was effectively borrowing foreign currency in the Euro, while Japan had a domestic sovereign currency. How a professional fund manager could be ignorant of basic monetary operations such as this is quite puzzling, but bluster and a few lucky bets can take you far in the hedge fund world, until you run out of luck and all you have left is bluster, which is good for a media career as a commentator.

    China has a state run monetary system, which prints interest free currency to finance infrastructure and production.

    The US has a privatized monetary system overseen by a semi-privatized, quasi-governmental central authority called the Fed. Money production is privatized. Banks have legal charters – licenses from the government to be monopoly producers of money, which allows them to produce i.e. print money and charge interest and other fees on the money. Under this system, the privatized monopoly prints money, at the local and central Fed Reserve level, according to the interests of the financial system i.e. what generates interest and other returns and maintains and inflates asset prices on the financial system’s balance sheet.

    “Printing money” has very different meanings in these 2 different contexts. For a financier like Bass, “printing money” only makes sense to generate financial returns via interest income, speculative gains, asset price inflation. “Printing money” to distribute interest free or low cost money on infrastructure and production makes no sense from the finance centric view.

    Also when it comes to heart disease, women actually have higher mortality rates. It’s just that men are more likely to have it to begin with.

    If you take wealthy men who actually go to the doctor regularly and don’t take many risks, I’m willing to bet their lifespans are almost identical to women’s.

    Maybe you and some of your family should join the Sons and other patriotic societies and be active in them. People often bring up how they’re eligible and then when asked, say they haven’t bothered to apply for membership. Why the hell not?!

    I am a member of several (Sons, Colonial Wars, and others), and encourage all whites to join those, or if you do not have founding stock ancestors then “ethnic” (in the pre POC sense) societies (Germanic or Columbian groups, for example), depending on what you’re eligible to join. Even New York City still has Germanic and Polish parades in addition to the tripe for St. Patricks and the homos. There is nothing like being around other people with a shared sense of identity to rediscover that, contrary to Hollywood and Globohomo’s endless mantra, we are not worthless garbage but in fact built and saved everything worthwhile you see. And remember yours is a background worth fighting for, deserving of dignity, and that others fought for. It gives you a sense of pride and self worth beyond your own life and provides relief from a pop culture that constantly sucks up to the groids.

    I was not old enough to vote in 2008 and had no interest in politics at the time. Honestly can’t say what I would have done.

    Especially in 2008, after Bushism damaged the country so badly, it’s understandable that the GOP brand was a bit radioactive. But after 2012, the Democrats seemed to believe that the demographic strategy had paid off enough-at least on an executive level-that they could ditch any pretenses and do a touchdown celebration. The attitude shift within the Obama Administration pre-and-post 2012 is not noted nearly enough.

    Needless to say, this came back to haunt them in 2016, because in fact, demographics had not proceeded to the point where they could just do as they please, and the result in 2012 had a lot more to do with the GOP’s Establishment’s mental escapism (nominating Mitt Romney in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression?!) than Obama’s appeal. But had Trump not decided to whimsically run and act as the proverbial bull in the GOP china shop beforehand, the Democrats might have continued to believe that they’d won the game, essentially. The GOPe would have nominated Bush and Rubio and would have predictably lost.

    If I’m not mistaken, there may be a neurological basis for opioid addiction. That is, some are much, much more susceptible than others. It may have something to do with innate insensitivity to natural opioids, like dopamine. For these people, permanent methadone treatment is very effective, because it corrects a condition that existed before their first hit.

    For most of us, regular dopamine rushes we get from everyday life (kids, pets, chocolate, etc.) are more than pleasurable enough to make life feel like it’s worth living.

    China has a state run monetary system, which prints interest free currency to finance infrastructure and production. …

    “Printing money” to distribute interest free or low cost money on infrastructure and production makes no sense from the finance centric view.

    It makes perfect sense from every standpoint (both China’s and the Western super rich and their hirelings) if the US allows the Chinese to go on a spending spree in the US while deindustrialising it yet increasingly undervaluing the Chinese currency.

    Rubio probably would have won, but it would have been a closer electoral margin.

    No white who votes for the Democrats is voting for his interests.

    Imho that is a true statement.

    However, most whites who vote for Democrats do not know what their interests are.

    The white Democrats I know (northeast US) have been brainwashed first by the educational establishment and then with ongoing reinforcement by the mass media (including advertising we have discussed here).

    Their views can be changed–but only by a “teaching moment” which they are unlikely to get in their Whitopia enclaves.

    I’d say Chinese productive capacity is doing well on it. The asset price inflation in the West is from the Chinese using the dollars from their trade surplus with the US to buy things in the West.

    Yes, the Chinese state run monetary system is focused on expanding productive capacity. This derives from the Classical economics view, which communism grew out of, that wealth = physical production. In this view, money is less of something unique and special, but more like just another factor of production, like labor, land, hammers. etc. Physical production is the thing; money is just a tool.

    In the finance centered view, money is something special and wealth = asset values. Money denominated financial asset values are the primary object, not physical production per se. The US monetary system is based around this view and designed to support the financial system. Asset price inflation is the point of the game, and the US dollar’s role as reserve currency is aimed at facilitating asset price inflation of the dollar and dollar-denominated assets. Commodities and international trade are priced in dollars for this purpose. China and everyone else have to obtain dollars to be able to buy commodities and engage in trade. To obtain dollars, you have to sell more and buy less from the US.

    “You will forever have an eighth grade brain that casts everything in binary terms.”

    Actually, my responses are routinely nuanced on this fine blog. Now, if you “settle for whites not adopting anti-white policies”, at least have the courtesy here to define specifically what is “anti-white”, considering whites have differences of opinion as what constitutes that concept.

    “The Democrat party is largely anti-White in a grand plan of giving away stuff to POC and other favored groups in some long term plan to make everyone happy, and equal, at some future point, at which time we can all settle down in a happy, multi-cultural port/trading center type of existence.”

    You mean BOTH political parties have been viewed by some whites as being “anti-white”. But without a clear, concise explanation on your part as to what it means to be “anti-white”, all that remains is posturing on your part.

    “However, most whites who vote for Democrats do not know what their interests are.”

    Actually, they decidedly comprehend what are and what are not their interests. How are you able to know unequivocally that whites are confused in this regard?

    “The white Democrats I know (northeast US) have been brainwashed first by the educational establishment and then with ongoing reinforcement by the mass media (including advertising we have discussed here).”

    That is really more an opinion on your part. Do you enjoy being a slave to your confirmation bias?

    “Their views can be changed–but only by a “teaching moment” which they are unlikely to get in their Whitopia enclaves.”

    So you propose your own brand of brainwashing. Great to know.

    Anti-white means anything that is detrimental to the prospects of long-term White survival, and yes, both parties are anti-White.

    “Non-blacks lost the right of freedom of association in the private and public/private spheres.”

    That is patently false. Non-blacks still have their right of freedom of association, just not the type that they had enjoyed under Jim Crow, which was a clear violation of the Constitution. Had Southrons simply adhered to the Plessy decision of “separate but equal”, rather than deny blacks their fundamental liberties, and punish white Southerners who sought to ensure those freedoms, then there would not have been a need for federal intervention.

    “All Americans lost power to the federal bureaucracy, an effective loss of rights.”

    Not all, just those who thought segregation was was protected under the 10th Amendment.

    “Civil disobedience gained legitimacy, which has turned out to be a signficiant loss for the right to freedom of speech.”

    Civil disobedience has been a feature, rather than a bug, in our nation’s history. Refer to the colonists fight against the British Empire, who thought that colonial boycotts, colonial assemblies, and colonial protests were illegal acts. The right to freedom of speech remains steadfast in our nation.

    “America was set on a course of institionalized race identification and race tribal conflict. This undermines all rights of the individual.”

    That is simply other than true. We have always had this “conflict”, whether it be racially based or social class based.

    Not sure who would have won a 2016 Bush vs Clinton race, but I’m highly confident there would have been a record low turnout. Honest pundits would have called it “The Nausea Election”.

    “How do you know who is white…”

    Based on skin pigmentation, based on racial traits, and based on the comments on this fine blog.

    “or what the majority of them do, or what their interests are? What is your evidence?”

    Whites join special interest groups and political parties. Do you need a primer?

    “Why is this likely? What proof do you have that I have demanded anything from anyone?”

    It’s a human trait for us to make demands from people, whether it be to demand our wives be faithful or for our children to do their chores or for some whites to demand that their fellow whites adhere to “pro white” policies.

    “What proof do you have that I have religious beliefs of any kind?”

    I used your term, “dogma”, which means “a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true.” So you are the one wrongly asserting that I made specific reference to your religious beliefs, or lack thereof. Nice try at bait and switch.

    “Why is this implied? Doesn’t seem an implication to me at all.”

    You have to ask why some white people here feel that way.

    “When have you seen me angry? Examples?”

    We’ve all been angry in our lives when certain demands are not met, right?

    “I never used the term anti-white and have no need to define it.”

    But others have here on this fine blog. Why do think they have made reference to “anti-white”? Feel free to speculate.

    “I discussed people voting in their own interests.”

    Must whites always vote for their own interests according to race? Yes or no.

    Must whites always vote for “white interests”, lest they be vilified by other whites for being “cucks” and “race traitors”? Yes or no.

    “As to what the “white” race is, the writers at the NYTs seem to have a definition of it as they villify and blame those they call white for all the world’s ills.”

    You mean how some posters here vilify and blame those they call Jews for all the world’s ills, too, friend? Regardless, your statement appears to be making an implication as to what constitutes “anti-white” conduct.

    “You never received a college education, and it shows.”

    So how you able to make that deduction merely from my statements on a blog? What is your proof?

    “White Americans are not a defeated people, we are a betrayed people.”

    Should not individual white people make that determination for themselves if they have been “betrayed”, rather than you assuming?

    “Flood the market with readily available opioids? “Its not murder, its mitzvah!” Create cultural conditions that drive an entire people towards despair and suicide? “Its not murder, its mitzvah!”

    What are you even babbling about?

    Well here is another disappointment for you. The Deep State doesn’t care about the unimportant internecine squabbles of the ‘two parties’ as long as their important issues are maintained. As a matter of fact it strengthens the false perception that there is a choice when voting. So the electoral system is not the way for change.

    Cheap money, or free money does not have to be used for productive investment it is even better for speculation, which I think everyone knew since the days of John Law. At the height of the Cold War the US was spending 2% of its GDP on research and development. Now there is no incentive to do that. Commercial companies won’t do it.

    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/basic-science-can-t-survive-without-government-funding/

    Even in applied fields, such as materials science and computer science, companies now understand that basic research is a form of charity—so they avoid it. Scientists at Bell Labs created the transistor, but that invention earned billions for Intel (and Microsoft). Engineers at Xerox PARC invented the modern graphical user interface, although Apple (and Microsoft) profited the most. IBM researchers pioneered the use of giant magnetoresistance to boost hard-disk capacity but soon lost the disk-drive business to Seagate and Western Digital.

    Like the most successful manufacturers of the American free market, China does not pay for its own lunch. What R&D America does do, China can with impunity pinch (no firm that complains ever gets into the immensely promising China again) or acquire with forced technology transfers. The only problem is if China floats its currency to a natural (very low) level concomitant with it being sold for dollars because then other countries will complain about China forcing its goods on the world by their cheapness.

    “Team White’s national majority is finished.”

    There is observably no such thing as “Team White”. The Alt Right assumes that the creation of the United States was undeniably monolithic. “Europeans” came to North America, conquered and settled. But they were other than united in the beginning by common ideologies. Europeans had their own “redoubts”, ethnically and/or culturally, in the Thirteen States. Remember, the Germans, the Irish, the Italians, the Slavs, the Poles–ALL had been considered at various points in time of unworthy of assimilation and citizenship. HOWEVER, they gradually blended into a new group–Americans–as they immersed themselves into building their political and economic institutions. And, accordingly, the Founding Fathers left open the door for future generations of Americans to weave other groups of people into the American fabric–European and non-European.

    The notion of “whites” or “European-whites” being bound together came about as a result of Social Darwinism and imperialism in the late 1800’s–the distinction that separated “us” from “them”. In this manner, the “lowest-rung” whites were deemed superior in social standing than their darkie counterparts, while at the same time knew full well their “pecking order” within the European hierarchy. The following source offers extensive evidence to prove this point.

    http://science.jrank.org/pages/10962/Race-Racism-in-Europe-French-Revolution-Nation.html

    “Light skin and gracile features are potent attractants, and K-selection is a powerful strategy; it civilized a whole brutal, r-selected world.”

    R-K selection theory is pseudo-science.

    “The whites left standing will be a lot more fierce than the current breed.”

    Where the “hedge funds´´, catering to the billionaires shift their digital numbers, so they appear on the right side of history and drown the future, that is where the action is. Today that is China. The US will in less then a decade be an empty shell, or something must give in the head of the elites. They are stowing their stash inside a leaking hull, the smarter, less scrupulous ones(Buffet) are helping themselves by walking over the dead body. If you see a psychopath, that`s what he is. Late to the thread, elDato lead me to it.
