In the post on millennials, I overlooked perhaps the most important data set included in the primary source. It wasn’t fully fleshed out in the report the GenForward released, but the complete results are there in the topline survey (thanks to commenter milan for the heads-up).
Respondents were asked to select their “top three most important” identities from a list of eight. The full results are on page 17 of the topline, but there are three of the eight I find especially remarkable. These are race/ethnicity, ideology, and American nationality.
The following graph shows the percentages of respondents, by race, who included each one among their top three from the list of eight. Keep in mind these are responses from those aged 18-34–millennials and the leading edge of zyklons:
They’re not African-Americans or Asian-Americans, they’re Africans in America and Asians in America.
When the boomers finally combust into oblivion, civic nationalism will flame out with them. The future will be the one the late Lee Kuan Yew described. It will then be able to burn out in the open, in all its babylonic glory:
In multiracial societies, you don’t vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion.
None of this had to happen. Fielding a reader’s question, the Z-Man dropped four words of unadulterated profundity:
Q: If you were to travel through time to visit Madison at the convention and inform him of the result of his experiment, what advice would you offer him?
A: Pick your own cotton.
Through 1965, things were stable enough. One-tenth of the population was as well assimilated to Anglo mores and values as could reasonably be expected, and subsidization from the white supermajority appeared viable into the indefinite future.
The country’s fate was truly sealed over the last five decades. The left chose to bring in foreign ringers to put them in positions of power instead of allowing the natives to pick who their leaders would be. The right decided it’d be better for The Economy to have brown peons pick their crops.
The country is still shambling along, but the internal bleeding is so severe that collapse is a question of “when?” rather than of “if?”.
Though America as a unified political entity will go extinct, heritage Americans need not do the same. Millennials are the nadir. Plenty of indicators suggest Gen Z is going to be an improvement, possibly a drastic one. Yet even among white millennials, 40% are racially conscious. That’s not nothing.
On the other hand, many of those 40% could be conscious in an ethnomasochistic way, but the intention is to wrap up with something positive, so enough dwelling on that!
