The most revealing part of Bret Stephens’s article The Secrets of Jewish Genius carried by The New York Times on December 27, 2019 is a list of outstanding Jews who have “contributed (to the world) so seminally to so many of its most path breaking ideas and innovations”.

Here they are: “Sarah Bernhardt and Franz Kafka; Albert Einstein and Rosalind Franklin; Benjamin Disraeli and (sigh) Karl Marx”. I am not about to dispute any of them, nor Stephens’ right of choice. Granted, this rather short list of Jewish over-achievers in different fields for a hundred years can be easily augmented. Such world-famous Jews as Sigmund Freud and Leo Trotsky (1879-1940)[1]Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein, 1879 –1940) was a Soviet revolutionary, whose particular strain of Marxism is known as Trotskyism. Initially supporting the Mensheviks within the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, he joined the Bolsheviks just before the 1917 October Revolution, immediately becoming a member of the Politburo to manage the Bolshevik Revolution.

During the early days of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) and the Soviet Union, he was People’s Commissar for Foreign Affairs and later commander of the Red Army, with the title of People’s Commissar of Military and Naval Affairs. He was a major figure in the Bolshevik victory in the Civil War (1918–1922).

Defeated in a struggle against Stalin in the 1920s, he was removed as Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs (January 1925), from the Politburo (October 1926), the Central Committee (October 1927), and expelled from the Communist Party (November 1927). Exiled to Alma–Ata (January 1928) and then from the USSR (February 1929). As the head of the Fourth International, Trotsky continued to oppose the Stalinist rule in the USSR from exile.

Trotsky was assassinated in Mexico City by Ramón Mercader, a Spanish-born NKVD agent. On 20 August 1940, Mercader attacked Trotsky with an ice axe and Trotsky died the next day in a hospital.

are very conspicuous by their absence.

And then that parenthetical “(sigh)” which Stephens emitted before placing it in front of Karl Marx! Does it not cancel the major part of Stephens’ argument about the exclusively beneficial influence of Jews on world affairs?

According to a standard dictionary to sigh is to “emit a long, deep audible breath expressing sadness, relief, tiredness, or similar”. In relation to Karl Marx (1818 – 1883),[2]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Marx one may not just sigh but weep for the millions of victims of the bloody violence his teaching of the necessity of class struggle and world revolution had unleashed world-wide. One certainly feels immense sadness at the millions of lives lost in the USSR (GULAG and more), Eastern Europe, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and wherever else Communists were allowed to take the reins.

As to “relief and tiredness,” both are apparent in respect to Marx’s misguided condemnation of free enterprise as taught by Adam Smith (1723 – 1790)[3]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Smith among others. Certainly, the neoliberal economists, now in charge of the economy of the US and its allies, feel “relief” not to have to look back to Marx. Even Russia’s economy, tormented by the oligarchs (mostly Jewish) as it is, seems to be doing much better than in the USSR.

And yet, isn’t Bret Stephens making a major mistake by reducing the ongoing Marxist influence in the world to merely a “sigh”? When one reads that in 2018 China’s government donated $200 million to have a monument to Marx erected in his birth city of Trier,[4]Karl Marx statue from China adds to German angst. 5 May 2018 https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44009621 one is forced to emit not just “sigh”, but “awe”. The PRC government still regards Marxism-Leninism as its official ideology.[5]CONSTITUTION OF THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA/ Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China and the guidance of Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thought of Three Represents, the Scientific Outlook on Development, and the Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the Chinese people of all ethnicities will continue to adhere to democratic dictatorship and the socialist road, persevere in reform and opening to the outside world, steadily improve socialist institutions, develop the socialist market economy… https://npcobserver.files.wordpress.com/2018/12/PRC-...18.pdf The PRC rulers may no longer follow the precepts of Marxist economics, but they never renounced Marx’ justification and glorification of violence. Moreover, Stephens is hardly unaware of the ongoing influence of “Cultural Marxism” world-wide, especially, in the West.[6]About Cultural Marxism controversy read The Guardian 2015 report:

It begins in the 1910s and 1920s. When the socialist revolution failed to materialise beyond the Soviet Union, Marxist thinkers like Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs tried to explain why. Their answer was that culture and religion blunted the proletariat’s desire to revolt, and the solution was that Marxists should carry out a “long march through the institutions” – universities and schools, government bureaucracies and the media – so that cultural values could be progressively changed from above. The conspiracy theorists claim that these “cultural Marxists” began to use insidious forms of psychological manipulation to upend the west. Then Nazism forced the (mostly Jewish) members of the Frankfurt School to move to America and got a chance to undermine the culture and values that had sustained the world’s most powerful capitalist nation.

It’s no secret that the first Bolshevik government under Lenin was heavily Jewish. In his 1994 article “The Jewish Role in the Bolshevik Revolution and Russia’s Early Soviet Regime. Assessing the Grim Legacy of Soviet Communism”, Mark Weber argued that “most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in 1917-20 were Jews.”[7]The Jewish Role in the Bolshevik Revolution and Russia’s Early Soviet Regime. Assessing the Grim Legacy of Soviet Communism. MARK WEBER • JAN/FEB 1994 ISSUE •

With the notable exception of Lenin, most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in 1917-20 were Jews. Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) headed the Red Army and then, was chief of Soviet foreign affairs. Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon) was both the Bolshevik party’s executive secretary and — as chairman of the Central Executive Committee — head of the Soviet government. Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky) headed the Communist International (Comintern), the central agency for spreading revolution in foreign countries. Other prominent Jews included press commissar Karl Radek (Sobelsohn), foreign affairs commissar Maxim Litvinov (Wallach), Lev Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Moisei Uritsky. Lenin himself was of mostly Russian ancestry, but he was also one-quarter Jewish. His maternal grandfather, Israel Blank, was a Ukrainian Jew who was later baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church.

Ron Unz, a Jewish Internet entrepreneur, who runs The Unz Review, a popular interactive site, published the above article, and added more “forgotten” information on the role of the Jews in the Bolshevik government. See his article American Pravda: the Bolshevik Revolution and Its Aftermath.[8]American Pravda: the Bolshevik Revolution and Its Aftermath. RON UNZ • JULY 23, 2018. 925 COMMENTS

Although most of the books hardly emphasized the point, anyone with a careful eye for the occasional sentence or paragraph would surely know that Jews were enormously over-represented among the top revolutionaries, with three of Lenin’s five potential successors— Trotsky, Zinoviev, and Kamenev—all coming from that background, along with many, many others within the top Communist leadership. Obviously, this was wildly disproportionate in a country having a Jewish population of perhaps 4%, and surely helped explain the large spike in worldwide hostility towards Jews soon afterward, which sometimes took the most deranged and irrational forms, such as the popularity of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and Henry Ford’s notorious publication of The International Jew. https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-the-bolshev...rmath/

The attraction of so many Jews world-wide to Marxism seems odd because Marx was no admirer of Jews as a people. He was, by all accounts a Jew-hating Jew. Read the latest discussion of the topic on the Internet:

Marx’s essay, On the Jewish Question, originally published in 1844, contains the following:

What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money… Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities…. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange…. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.

Marx argues that, “In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.[9]MICHAEL EZRA. 23 MARCH 2015/ Karl Marx’s Radical Antisemitism

Michael Ezra argues that Karl Marx’s anti-Semitism is clear and unambiguous.

https://www.philosophersmag.com/opinion/30-karl-marx...mitism

Marx’s own words may sound as prejudicial toward Jews as anything that had been written about Jews from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Yet, I would not want to be unfair to the young Marx by calling him outright “anti-Semitic”, a term I avoid as a malicious misnomer designed to implicate all non-Jews in irrational hatred of racial or physical features common for the Jews and the Arabs. But Marx’s attitude toward the Jewish preoccupation with money-lending and other financial machinations, negative as it was, deserves attention. (At this point I would expect Stephens to fill the brackets with a word much stronger than “sigh”).

The young Marx’s aversion to a common Jewish preoccupation with money was an important factor of his hostility to Capitalism in general. Nay, it was more than hostility: it was an obsessive desire to get rid of it, once and for all, preferably by violent revolutionary means. Strange as it may seem, it was precisely this psychological need to free oneself from any association with “the Golden Calf” of Capitalism in a single stroke that attracted the young Karl Marx — and then thousands of young, idealistic and impatient Jews– to Communism, especially in Russia and Eastern Europe.

It seems like they badly wanted to get rid of their Jewishness, at least, of its “bad traits”, by joining The Communist International (Comintern)[10]The Communist International (Comintern), known as the Third International (1919–1943), was an international organization that advocated world communism. The Comintern resolved at its Second Congress to “struggle by all available means, including armed force, for the overthrow of the international bourgeoisie and the creation of an international Soviet republic.” whose members were not expected to notice, much less remark on, any physical or cultural traits of their comrades. Everybody was expected to concentrate instead on preparing for “the last and decisive battle” to free the world from Capitalism” and, by implication, from dependence on money.

There is more to Marx’s personality, and I suspect that Stephens will use the brackets again when he hears that. In my 1978 essay “Karl Marx as Dr. Frankenstein: Toward Genealogy of Communism,”[11]Karl Marx as Dr. Frankenstein: Toward Genealogy of Communism https://www.academia.edu/28227073/Karl_Marx_as_Frank...Q.dpuf based on the novel of Mary Shelley, I tried to show how the young Karl was strongly drawn to Luceferian poetry[12]Due to a condition referred to as a “weak chest”, Marx was excused from military duty when he turned 18. While at the University at Bonn, Marx joined the Poets’ Club, a group containing political radicals that were monitored by the police. He also joined the Trier Tavern Club drinking society, at one point serving as club co-president. He was also involved in serious disputes: in August 1836 he took part in a duel with a member of the university’s Borussian Korps. Although his grades in the first term were good, they soon deteriorated, leading his father to force a transfer to University of Berlin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Marx and dreamt of becoming a famous Devil-worshipping rebel-poet, rather than an economic scientist.

In a high-school the young Karl loved to write papers testifying to his Christian devotion (his parents, both of rabbinical families, had converted from Judaism to Lutheranism). However, as soon as he entered the University of Bonn as a student, he started carousing with his buddies and, when alone, wrote poetry full of the rebellious spirit. His favorite theme was a demonic rebellion against God. One of his poems was titled “Oulanem”, a sacrilegious distortion of Emanuel.[13]Emanuel m (biblical) Immanuel whose birth is prophesied in the Book of Isaiah. A male given name from Hebrew, equivalent to English Immanuel. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Emanuel

See also https://www.amazon.com/Oulanem-Fictional-Conspiracy-...959938 and “Was Marx a Satanist?” by Richard Wurmbrand.
In his letters, Marx’s father expressed concerns about his son’s obsession with “demons.”

His buddies, on the other hand, saw him as a modern Prometheus rebelling against all religions as “the opium of the people” to keep the proletariat dazed under Capitalism. However, when you analyze Karl’s poems, it becomes clear that his favorite Prometheus was not the one who wanted to bestow on the people the gift of domesticated fire, but rather the Prometheus who was the avenger of gods, filled with hatred of the world and ready to set it aflame with revolution.

Just like Shelley’s fictional Dr.Frankenstein, the young Karl is bright, knowledgeable, and full of a benevolent desire to free people from all the foibles of today by creating a New Mankind. But as Frankenstein was flabbergasted with the Monster produced in his Lab designed to produce a New Man, so Karl Marx would have been horrified seeing what his “offspring”, Marxism-Leninism, was in reality.

It was in Marx’s name that an attempt was made to create a new mankind. However, in reality the 73-years long heroic effort in Russia produced not only the horrors of Civil War, destruction of churches, mosques and synagogues, forced collectivization, followed by Holodomor (not just in Ukraine!), the Show Trials, enormous losses in World War II, the GULAG, suppression of all dissent, but also – new waves of Jewish emigration. Fatefully, just like Mary Shelley let Dr. Frankenstein drop his Monster in “the wilderness of Russia” where he had more space for mischiefs, so the adepts of Marx unleashed his monster on the landmass of the Russian Empire.

The three Russian writers – Varlam Shalamov, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Osip Mandelshtam – were among the millions victims of the GULAG

Would it not be natural in analyzing Marx’s personality to turn to the services of yet another great Jewish figure, Sigmund Freud (1856 -1939)[14]Sigmund Freud (1856 -1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst. Freud was born to Galician Jewish parents in the Moravian town of Freiberg. He qualified as a doctor of medicine in 1881 at the University of Vienna. Upon completing his habilitation in 1885, he was appointed a docent in neuropathology and became an affiliated professor in 1902. He set up his clinical practice in Vienna in 1886. In 1938, he left Austria to escape the Nazis and died in the UK in 1939. Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference. Freud’s redefinition of sexuality led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as the central tenet of psychoanalytical theory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmund_Freud who somehow failed to make Stephens’ list? Freud’s absence from the list of famous Jews seems even more intriguing than Bret’s “sigh” in front of Marx. After all, Freud’s popularity outlived that of Marx.[15]If we want a different politics, we need another revolutionary: Freud. By Suzanne Moore

Marx is all very well, but to effect real change Sigmund Freud’s modern tools of self-examination hold the answers

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/dec/2...y-marx
A younger contemporary of Marx, living in Austria and speaking the German language, Freud must have heard of Marx or read his works. What is known for sure, Freud did not invite Marx on his psycho-analytical couch.[16]https://newhumanist.org.uk/articles/5246/why-does-ps...-couch He should have! After all, Marx was tormented by a number of psychological problems, and one of them was self-aggrandizement.

The problem of self-aggrandizement was probably rooted in his problems with his father who much preferred a quiet bourgeois life to his son’s obsession with changing the world. It seems, his father bothered Karl mostly as a tangible projection of the Universal God figure that all exploitative (Karl’s language) societies like to extoll. Karl was determined to overthrow that God by reducing the amount of religion – “the opiate of the people” that the proletariat consumed, because it diverted them from joining his intellectual comrades in world revolution.

One might say that, as in his Oedipus complex poetic dreams, Marx wanted to slay not just his biological father, but also the Christian God Father of his youth, as well as Yahweh, the God of the Jews whom his ancestors had worshipped for centuries. In any case, his Bolshevik followers in Russia desecrated and destroyed untold numbers of houses of worship and religious relics, be they Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or whatever.

The persecution of the Russian Christians was especially vicious as Soviet leaders realized that the traditional Russian value system was a major obstacle to Marxist-Leninist ideology. One way or another, for all 73 years of Communist experiment in Russia, the ideological trinity of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Lenin not just overshadowed but virtually displaced the Christian Trinity of God Father, God Son and the Holy Spirit that had spiritually sustained Russia for a thousand years.

It is hardly accidental that in 1943, under the pressure of Hitler’s armies, Stalin nominally restored the Russian Orthodox Patriarchy in quest for national consolidation. To keep Soviet soldiers fighting, Stalin had to counter the rumors that in the occupied territories Germans were not as harsh on Russian Christians as the Bolsheviks were.

Soviet propagandist always presented Marxist ideas not as ideological speculations but as an immutable science. The laws of surplus value, of ever increasing exploitation of the proletariat, and the concept of the inevitability of revolution as formulated by Marx, were presented as “science” on par with Newton’s or Einstein’s laws in physics. A student was called “stupid” is he disagreed. Marxism was presented as the greatest achievement of Western civilization. It was superior to the “utopian socialist dreams” of such philosophers as Henri de Saint-Simon.[17]Henri de Saint-Simon (1760 – 1825), was a French social theorist and the founder of French socialism. In the wake of the French Revolution, Saint-Simon proposed a new and positive reorganization of society, controlled by the chiefs of industry, with scientists in the role of priests. Saint-Simon’s call for a “science of society” influenced the development of sociology and economics. Saint-Simon’s vision influenced French and European society throughout the nineteenth century. https://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Henri_de_...-Simon After a number of breakthroughs in science, with the ongoing industrial revolution in England, it was only a matter of time when science would displace religion.

As I have already shown, the young Mary Shelley (1797 – 1851)[18]Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1797 –1851) was an English novelist who wrote the Gothic novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). She also edited and promoted the works of her husband, the Romantic poet and philosopher Percy Bysshe Shelley. Her father was the political philosopher William Godwin and her mother was the philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Shelley has noticed early on that the abolition of God and replacement of religion with science was fraught with the risk of undermining the ethical foundation of society leading to its collapse.

Marx’s followers certainly over-reached when they proclaimed Marxism-Leninism in Russia, China and elsewhere as a SCIENCE. They claimed it was founded on the most advanced developments of the most advanced countries of the time: German philosophy, French socialist theories, and the experience of the British labor movement. They predicted that a victory of the world revolution was scientifically ordained and would end with the establishment of a world order that would guarantee everybody’s happiness.

While writing about Shelley’s Frankenstein in 1978, that is about fourteen years after my defection from the USSR in October 1962, I was constantly reminded of the fate of my fellow dissidents in the USSR, as well as of the ever-increasing flow of Jewish immigrants to the USA. Around 1973 an agreement was made with Soviet leaders that would allow a legal emigration of Soviet Jews[19]Signed into law by U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1975 , the Jackson-Vanik Amendment to the Trade Act of 1974 eliminated barriers to the emigration of Soviet Jewry. Officially known as the Vanik Bill in the House and the Jackson Amendment in the Senate, this amendment required that nonmarket economy countries comply with specific free emigration criteria as a prerequisite for receiving economic benefits in trade relations with the USA. These benefits included Most Favored Nation (MFN) status—now known as Normal Trade Relations—and access to U.S. government financial facilities. https://yivoencyclopedia.org/article.aspx/Jackson-Va...ndment for such humanitarian reasons as joining their families in Israel. (It later became adopted as Jackson-Vanik Amendment.) However, as soon as the applicants arrived to Vienna, Austria, for sorting out their next destination, the majority claimed they had no relatives in Israel and would rather go to the United States. I had already met a number of them who came to live in Dallas, Texas, where I taught at the Southern Methodist University.

Now I wondered what would have happened to Karl Marx had he indeed settled in the country of his “scientific” dream where “there was no difference in either income or treatment due to one’s nationality or origin”. Would he have joined clandestine courses where Soviet Jews learned Hebrew before going to Israel? Or would he have joined my Russian friends Lev Krasnopevtsev, Anatoly Ivanov, Vladimir Osipov or Andrei Amalrik[20]Andrei Amalrik (1938, Moscow –1980, Guadalajara, Castile-La Mancha, Spain), was a Russian writer and dissident best known in the Western world for his essay, Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?

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

Information about other people on my list is available in the Russian version of Wikipedia.
—to name just my fellow history students from Moscow State University—all of whom landed in the GULAG or the lunatic asylum? Or would Karl Marx have preferred to immigrate to the USA and join me on the faculty of SMU where he could teach not pol sci or economics—God Forbid, IMO—but “Life in the USSR” that I was teaching?

Given the young Karl’s rebellious character, he would have tried to get out of the USSR where not all his works were allowed to be read, especially, not his article “On the Jewish Question”. I am sure he would have tried to escape from the trap he had set up for the future mankind by inspiring Lenin and his Bolshevik comrades to capture my native Russia.

Well, the world proletarian revolution did not start in the most advanced industrial countries of Europe, as Marx predicted, but in a relatively backward Russia. It would be a mistake to think that the Bolsheviks had any substantial support from either Russians or Jews in the Russian Empire when they seized power.

The 90th anniversary of the massacre of the Romanovs in Yekaterinburg has been raised to a new level thanks to the city of Perm.

Not many Jews were voting for the Bolsheviks as they were happy with the abolition of the Pale of Settlement and other liberal reforms of the Provisional government. Besides, the Bolshevik “triumph” in shoving away the popularly elected Constituent Assembly was almost at once marred– at first symbolically and eventually fatefully–by the Balfour Declaration that was made virtually at the same time.[22]Please read The Balfour Declaration at 100: Remembering Its Prophetic Jewish Critics. By ALLAN C. BROWNFELD. Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, November/December 2017, pp. 42-43

Israel and Judaism. 2017 NOVEMBER-DECEMBER. https://www.wrmea.org/017-november-december/the-balf...s.html I found this article so important, that I translated it into Russian.
Thus, now for more than 100 years the Jews of Russia—and of the world–have been drawn in opposite directions and forced to make a fateful decision: Communism or Zionism. I believe the majority of Jews would prefer never to have to make such decision between these two diametrically opposed extremist and violent positions.

Even though Jews became dominant in Lenin’s government, it does not mean they were pacified. As a matter of fact, the two most audacious terrorist acts against the Bolsheviks were carried out by Jews. Fanny Kaplan,[23]Fanny Kaplan (real name Feiga Haimovna Roytblat, 1890 – 1918) was a member of the Socialist Revolutionary Party who allegedly tried to assassinate Vladimir Lenin. As a member of the Socialist Revolutionaries (SRs), Kaplan viewed Lenin as a “traitor to the revolution” when the Bolsheviks banned her party. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fanny_Kaplan a Jewish revolutionary, attempted to kill Lenin, and Leonid Kannegisser[24]Leonid Kannegisser (1896 –1918) was a Russian poet and military cadet, known for assassinating Moisei Uritsky, chief of the Cheka in Petrograd, on 17 August 1918. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonid_Kannegisser succeeded in assassinating the most hated killer Moisei Uritsky, a Jew and the head of the feared CHEKA in Petrograd.[25]Moisei Uritsky (1873–August 17, 1918) was a Bolshevik revolutionary leader in Russia. After the October Revolution, he was Chief of Cheka of Petrograd City. Uritsky was assassinated by Leonid Kannegisser, a military cadet, who was executed shortly afterwards. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moisei_Uritsky

Maxim Gorky, the most famous Russian writer who was friends with Lenin and a judeophile, condemned the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly and suppression of popular protest on the streets of Petrograd with gun-fire in January 1918. One might say that this was the end of whatever popular appeal Lenin’s Marxist revolution may have had for the Russian masses, Jews and Gentiles alike. The Civil War ensued (1918-1922) in which Russia lost more people than in World War I.

It became apparent that the Communist revolution in Russia was made not for the benefit of the working masses but to serve as an ego trip for a cohort of intellectuals aspiring to lead the whole world into the Utopia of world communism. Nobody expressed the disillusionment with Communism better than the Russian writer Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884 – 1937)[26]Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884 – 10 March 1937), was a Russian author of science fiction and political satire. He is most famous for his 1921 novel We, a story set in a dystopian future police state. Despite having been a prominent Old Bolshevik, Zamyatin was deeply disturbed by the policies pursued by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union following the October Revolution. In 1921, WE became the first work banned by the Soviet censorship. Ultimately, Zamyatin arranged for WE to be smuggled to the West for publication. The subsequent outrage this sparked within the Party and the Union of Soviet Writers led to Zamyatin’s successful bid for exile from his homeland. Due to his use of literature to criticize Soviet society, Zamyatin has been referred to as one of the first Soviet dissidents. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Zamyatin who as early as 1921 published the first anti-Utopian novel, symbolically titled “WE”, in which he foretold the emergence of a totalitarian state as a consequence of Bolshevik rule. The book had to be published abroad.

It took quite a while before the West woke up to the threat if Communism. In 1945 George Orwell published “Animal farm” and in 1949 “Nineteen-Eighty-four.” He wrote these dystopian classics in the wake of Zamyatin, but he did not have to go to the USSR: as a British Communist he joined the civil war in Spain and witnessed bloody infighting among his comrades, an experience which gave him perspective into what Communist future would likely look like. Even before Orwell, Arthur Koestler, a former Jewish Communist, described his ultimate rejection of Communism in his anti-totalitarian novel “Darkness at Noon”.

Of course, the essence of Communist rule was in plain sight since 1917. And yet, after initial assistance to the so-called “White Russian Armies” of insurgents against Bolshevik rule during the Russian Civil War (1918-1922), the United States and the rest of the Free World did little to resist the virus of Communism until the USSR fell under its own weight at the end of 1991. This was in spite of some early warnings from British journalists and even Winston Churchill himself who in as early as 1920 warned of a “worldwide (Bolshevik) conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization.” Churchill pointed out that even in the UK “In every city there are small bands of eager men and women, watching with hungry eyes any chance to make a general overturn in the hopes of profiting themselves in the confusion, and these miscreants are fed by Bolshevist money. [Cheers.] They are ceaselessly endeavoring by propagating the doctrines of communism, by preaching violent revolution, by inflaming discontent, to infect us with their disease.[27]Bolshevism and Imperial Sedition, November 4, 1920/A speech at United Wards Club Luncheon, Cannon Street Hotel in London. https://www.nationalchurchillmuseum.org/bolshevism-a...n.html

To begin with, Imperial Germany helped smuggle Lenin and dozens of his comrades across German territory and Sweden to the rebellious Petrograd in April 1917, and supplied them with money. America was not far behind. In his comprehensive article “American Pravda: the Bolshevik Revolution and Its Aftermath” Ron Unz quotes Henry Wickham Steed, editor of The Times of London that “(Jacob) Schiff, Warburg and the other top Jewish international bankers were among the leading backers of the Jewish Bolsheviks, through whom they hoped to gain an opportunity for the Jewish exploitation of Russia, and he describes their lobbying efforts on behalf of their Bolshevik allies at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference following the end of the First World War”.[28]“American Pravda: the Bolshevik Revolution and Its Aftermath”. By Ron Unz.. JULY 23, 2018

According to Unz, “Even the very recent and highly skeptical 2016 analysis in Kenneth D. Ackerman’s 2016 book Trotsky in New York, 1917 notes that U.S. Military Intelligence reports (were) pointing to Trotsky as the conduit for the heavy financial backing of Schiff and numerous other Jewish financiers” and that Schiff “gave a refuge to Trotsky and other revolutionaries and gave them funds to foment revolution in Russia”.

Armand Hammer (1898 – 1990), also a US Jewish businessman, had provided funds for the Soviets longer than anybody else. But he did not do it just for an idea. Read about him in “The Bolshevik Billionaire” by Steve Sailer.[29] The Bolshevik Billionaire. By Steve Sailer. July 15, 2015

Both the Communist Party and the Trotsky adherents operated freely in the States when I arrived here in 1966. I witnessed how the country was being torn apart by the Vietnam antiwar movement. Still, I enjoyed the year at the University of Chicago where I was free to go where I wanted, to meet people I liked, and read books unavailable in the USSR. One day I bought Hitler’s book “Main Kampf” (in English translation) at the university bookstore; then went to a lecture by Hanna Arendt (1906 – 1975), who pointed out the similarity of both the Nazi and Soviet regimes in their totalitarian essence; then approached a stand that peddled Trotsky’s books and engaged his young adherents who were glad I defected from the USSR; then visited a former White Army officer who still wore the Tsarist military cap in his tiny apartment, and we had a drink to Communism’s defeat in Russia and elsewhere; then I spoke before a Lithuanian club whose members listened to me eagerly as they not had a Lithuanian defector for a while. Finally, I celebrated Christmas at a Ukrainian church and saw no difference with Russian churches in the USSR, except that it was full. It was a year of liberty to discover. I felt like a Columbus.

Sometime during the 1980s when I moved to California to teach Russian language and Soviet studies at the Monterey Institute of International Studies I came across the book Destructive Generation: Second Thoughts About the Sixties by Peter Collier and David Horowitz. As in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I witnessed insurgent activities, including bombing attacks, on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle, and I was curious how the two would describe those events.

One chapter attracted my attention. It was about David’s family life in a provincial American town. Both his father and mother, Jewish to be sure, were members of the CPUSA. And so were virtually all of their friends. All their endless meetings were about how to defeat “American imperialism” and to advance the cause of the Communist Party. Even though for the public they projected themselves as “The New Left,” writes Horowitz, in reality they were the same “old Stalinists”. He describes his upbringing as a self-imposed ideological ghetto because his parents shunned the newspapers and did not talk to non-Communist neighbors.

As to “Second Thoughts” in the title, I remember David’s decisive rejection of the subversive Communist ideology that indeed produced the “destructive generation” in the USA. I cannot help noticing, however, that after abandoning one extreme, Communism, David has joined the other, Zionism.[30]Right-wing bomb thrower David Horowitz behind anti-SJP posters

It took a while for the best minds of the West to recognize that Zamyatin was right in describing the Soviet regime as totalitarian and issuing a warning as early as 1921. The West simply ignored several attempt to advance the Bolshevik Revolution in Hungary (the leader was Bela Kun) and Germany (Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg), and the emergence of fascism in Italy and National-Socialism in Germany, both trying to build a right-wing totalitarian regimes as a wall against the spread of left-wing Communist totalitarianism. Apparently, nobody paid much attention to the book The Origin of Totalitarian Democracy by Jacob Leib Talmon (1916 –1980), Professor of Modern History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Reviewing genealogy of totalitarianism, Talmon argued that Communist political Messianism stemmed from the French Revolution, and stressed the similarities between Jacobinism and Stalinism.

Even though Germany’s and Italy’s economies were more free-market oriented that that of the USSR, Western governments chose to side with the Left-Totalitarian Soviet Communism. The common denominator of the two kinds of totalitarianism was reliance on violence in domestic and foreign affairs. Not for nothing the Soviet writer Vasily Grossman (1905 – 1964)[31]Vasily Grossman (1905 –1964) was a Soviet writer of Jewish origin. He trained as a chemical engineer at Moscow State University. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was engaged as a war correspondent by the Red Army newspaper and wrote first-hand accounts of the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin. Grossman’s eyewitness reports of a Nazi extermination camp near Treblinka were among the first accounts of a Nazi death camp. While Grossman was never arrested, his two major literary works (Life and Fate and Forever Flowing) were deemed anti-Soviet, and Grossman became a nonperson. The KGB raided Grossman’s flat after he had completed Life and Fate, seizing manuscripts. He was told by the Communist Party’s chief ideologist Mikhail Suslov that the book could not be published for two or three hundred years. At the time of Grossman’s death in 1964 these books remained unreleased. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasily_Grossman summed up his World War II experience in his novel “Life and Fate,” including description of German extermination camps, by wondering about “Why is the class warfare we unleashed morally superior to the race war of the Nazis?”

Here I must interject the name of Benjamin H Freedman, who has shed a lot of new light on the most obscure dealings between the Communists and Capitalists, who are usually thought to be mortal enemies. According to Wikipedia,

Benjamin Harrison Freedman (1890 –1984) was an American businessman, Holocaust denier, and vocal anti-Zionist. Born in a Jewish family, he converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism. Outside of political activism, Freedman was a partner in a dermatological institute and investor for small businesses.”[32]Benjamin Harrison Freedman (1890 – 1984) was an American businessman, Holocaust denier, and vocal anti-Zionist. Born in a Jewish family, he converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism. Outside of political activism, Freedman was a partner in a dermatological institute and investor for small businesses. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_H._Freedman

I first heard about Freedman some years ago, but then there were no accusations of him being a Holocaust denier. What attracted my attention was his introduction as “a Jewish Defector (who) Warns America.” Being a defector myself, and actually the author of Soviet Defectors: The KGB Wanted List[33]Soviet Defectors: The KGB Wanted List (Hoover Institution Press Publication) by Vladislav Krasnov https://www.amazon.com/Soviet-Defectors-Wanted-Insti...982329 (though I defected in 1962 not from Judaism, but the Communist USSR), I could not help admiring that a few months before my defection, in 1961 Freedman gave a speech before a patriotic audience at the Willard Hotel, Washington, D.C.,[34]https://www.biblebelievers.org.au/benjamin.htm on behalf of Conde McGinley‘s patriotic newspaper, “Common Sense”. Here’s what Freedman said: “Here in the United States, the Zionists and their co-religionists have complete control of our government. For many reasons, too many and too complex to go into here at this time, the Zionists and their co-religionists rule these United States as though they were the absolute monarchs of this country. Now you may say that is a very broad statement, but let me show you what happened while we were all asleep.

Is it not surprising, even baffling, to realize that the Jews as a people whom we, the Gentiles, often associate with the jewelry business, – that is, dealing with gold, silver, pearls and diamonds,- nonetheless seem not to strive for the Golden Mean as the goal of their own individual or national existence?

In any case, Lenin (partly Jewish) and his Jewish Bolsheviks abhorred the very word of “compromise” (компромис in Russian) as a “bourgeois trick” designed to emasculate revolutionary fervor. Methinks, this kind of ideological rigidness prevented Mikhail Gorbachev and his perestroika comrades from even seeking in the late 1980s a compromise between the then exiting socialist planned economy and collective farming, on the one hand, and the remnants of individual free enterprise which were not yet fully eradicated in the USSR, on the other. As I had lived in Sweden, I imagined that the Swedish national experience of merging free enterprise with a welfare state could serve as a model for post-Communist Russia.

Instead, after the dissolution of the USSR, Russia under Boris Yeltsin plunged, on the advice of a Harvard team of Jewish economists, into “privatization, that is whole-sale dissolution of state enterprises and transferring them into the hands of oligarchs, almost all Jewish, whose main “skill” was having accounts overseas.[35]Would Harvard Ever Help Russia? By W. George Krasnow http://www.russialist.org/archives/2006-62-24.php

Read also Did Shock Therapy Help Russia? About Anders Aslund’s Capitalist Revolution
http://www.russialist.org/archives/2008-88-39.php

Just before the dissolution, I finished my book Russia Beyond Communism: A Chronicle of National Rebirth.[36]Russia Beyond Communism: A Chronicle Of National Rebirth (C C R S SERIES ON CHANGE IN CONTEMPORARY SOVIET SOCIETY) by Vladislav Krasnov, Bolder, CO. 1991 https://www.amazon.com/Russia-Beyond-Communism-Chron...383617 In it I took the issue with Western sovietologists who were so enthused with Gorbachev’s perestroika that saw no other but a Communist future. Certainly they abhorred the idea that a new Russia would identify with its Christian roots. In fact, my book was dedicated to the thousand year anniversary of Russia’s baptism in the year 988. The book came out just in time for me to give a copy to Boris Yeltsin following his victory speech after dispersing an abortive coup by Communist hardliners on August 22, 1991. It was a symbolic gift because during the speech Yeltsin announced that the Russian Federation would replace the Red flag of Communism with Russia’s national tricolor.

The book was a review of the “polyphonic choir” consisting of the voices of glasnost, that is, Soviet authors of different political persuasions searching for possible sources of national renewal. The main focus was on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s “Letter to the Soviet Leaders”(1973) and “Rebuilding Russia”(1990).

In both works Solzhenitsyn proposed a peaceful, gradual, and Non-Violent evolution of the country away from its Marxist-Leninist fetters. In Chapter Four I included a discussion of the role of Jews in the revolution and Jewish –Russian relations in general.

As it turned out, near the end of his career, Solzhenitsyn turned to the same topic in his two-volume book “Two Hundred Years Together” in which he put the role of Jews in the Communist revolution into a deeper historical context. Strangely, the English translation is not readily available for American readers. For the lack of it, I recommend an essay by Vladimir Moss titled “Russia and the Jews: 1856-1917.” It’s available for downloading on Academia.edu. Dr. Moss is actually a British scholar and converted Russian Orthodox Christian. He frankly admits that his book is “based largely on (Solzhenitsyn’s) research – which is derived to a great extent from Jewish sources. For it is only on the basis of such balanced and truthful historiography that real peace can be established between the nations”. I agree with Dr. Moss that the truth about the greatest tragedy of the 20th century should be sought via a dialogue between, first and foremost, Jews and Russians, for the sake of peace on earth.

Now back to “The Secrets of Jewish Genius”. I may not have written this rebuttal to Bret Stephens had I not checked my email on January 3, 2020. There was a letter from Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) of which I have been a happy (non-Jewish) member for a number of years. The letter said:

Tallie Ben Daniel <[email protected]>

TO: W George Krasnow <[email protected]>

DATE: January 3, 2020

Dear W George (my common American appellation),

I was appalled when I saw the latest column from New York Times writer Bret Stephens. He claims that white Ashkenazi Jews have genetically superior intellects, and backs up this claim with a bogus study from a white supremacist eugenics “expert.”

This is race science – the same ideology that has inspired violence and genocide against Jewish people – and we can’t let it stand. Sign our petition to demand The New York Times fire Bret Stephens for this gross abuse of his platform.

Frankly, I was a bit baffled, for I did not see in the article any reference to <<a white supremacist eugenics “expert.”>> Methinks the version I read omitted that reference.

Then I re-read Editors’ Note which indeed says (here abbreviated) that Stephens quoted “a 2005 paper that advanced a genetic hypothesis for the basis of intelligence among Ashkenazi Jews. Mr. Stephens was not endorsing the study or its authors’ views, but it was a mistake to cite it uncritically. The effect was…an impression with many readers that Mr. Stephens was arguing that Jews are genetically superior. That was not his intent. He went on instead to argue that culture and history are crucial factors in Jewish achievements…“What makes Jews special is that they aren’t. They are representational.”[37]https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/27/opinion/jewish-cu...q.html

After reading the above I decided not to honor JVP’s request, even though, as a JVP member, I have signed many of it appeals, including those on behalf of Palestinians. In fact, I would recommend JVP to anyone as an organization that is both high-minded and effective. But in this case, I felt it was a mistake to punish Stephens for his free speech and for being proud of his people. I also felt he was already punished by the Editors who nearly emasculated his article.

I say so in spite of strongly objecting to Stephens’ contention that any disagreement with or critique of either Zionism or the state of Israel amounts to Jew-hatred or, as he says, “anti-Semitism”. In this respect, I am in full agreement with Jewish Voice for Peace created to promote peace between Israel and Palestine. In effect, it also promotes peace between the USA and Russia. As president of the Russia & America Goodwill Association (www.raga.org) which I have run since 1992, I have primarily focused on the improvement of US-Russia relations after the collapse of the USSR. However, it soon became clear that the US foreign policy was high-jacked by the Neocons (several of whom were former Trotskyists)[38]Neoconservatism – where Trotsky meets Stalin and Hitler.

whose goal is world domination for which Israel’s supremacy in the Middle East is the main linchpin.

and several others.

Some of their articles I have posted or quoted in RAGA and even translated into Russian. Not all of the above are concerned with Israel or Zionism. But those who are concerned are not working in a vacuum. As early as 2001 the research of two great scholars, John Mearshimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen Walt of Harvard resulted in the book The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy in which the linkage of the two was made uncontestable.

We are very fortunate to have on our side the authority of Jimmy Carter, the US president and the Nobel Peace Prize winner, the first to pay attention to human rights in the USSR and the one who brought Israel and Palestine closest to a peaceful agreement. To his great credit, after the deal failed, Carter did not fall silent but wrote a book to leave Israel with the choice, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid.[44]https://www.amazon.com/Palestine-Peace-Apartheid-Jim...285034 Don’t hold your breath, but I see Bernie Sanders, a Jew, as a credible choice to play a similar presidential role in pushing for Israel-Palestine peace.

I believe that the strongest defense against prejudice toward Jews around the world comes not from Israel’s armed forces (IDF), nor from its nuclear weapons,[46]Did Israel Blow Up the Vanunu Nuclear Whistleblower Affair to Boost Its Deterrence? Thirty years after the espionage case exposed Israel’s nuclear secrets, the questions remain. By Adam Raz/ March 30, 2018. https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium.MAGAZIN...961997 and certainly not from the US Department of Defense, but from the righteous Jews like those listed above. Because when the non-Jews meet, read or hear the people like those listed above, they know that in the search for truth and justice what counts most is not the difference in IQs between Jews and Gentiles but their commitment to decency.

While I do not wish to dispute the importance of high IQ scores for Jewish provenance in business, arts and science, I doubt that higher IQs are automatically to higher ethical standards or wisdom. Quite to the contrary: a person of higher intelligence is more likely to succumb to excessive pride and egotism leading to the foibles of hubris and self-destruction as has been known since antiquity. On a mundane level Bernie Madoff[47]10 years after Madoff ripped off the Jewish world, many groups have managed to find their feet again.

Nor did his cleverness prevent him from causing a tragedy for himself and his family. And Kosher Mafia, alas, is not an “anti-Semitic” trope. I heard about it way back, from my Jewish friends in 1966 when I lived in Chicago. Now I learn more about Jewish mafia in America from the Israeli newspaper “Haaretz”, not “The New York Times”.

However, I am amenable to Stephens’s correction, suggested by his editors, that “The Secrets of Jewish Genius” must be sought not so much in racial characteristics, but rather in the idea that “culture and history are crucial factors in Jewish achievements”. But I would add “religion” and recommend he reads The Jewish Century[48]The Jewish Century by Yuri Slezkine. https://press.princeton.edu/books/paperback/97806911...entury by Yuri Slezkine, my former Soviet countryman and now American professor. Below is the publisher’s teaser: “

This masterwork of interpretative history begins with a bold declaration: The Modern Age is the Jewish Age — and we are all, to varying degrees, Jews. The assertion is, of course, metaphorical. But it underscores Yuri Slezkine’s provocative thesis. Not only have Jews adapted better than many other groups to living in the modern world, they have become the premiere symbol and standard of modern life everywhere.”

Also to be recommended is Max Weber’s (1864-1920)[49]Maximilian Weber (1864 –1920) was a German sociologist, philosopher, jurist, and political economist. He is one of the most important theorists on the development of modern Western society. His ideas profoundly influenced social theory. Weber is often cited, with Émile Durkheim and Karl Marx, as among the three founders of sociology. classic The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.[50]The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, a book by Max Weber, a German sociologist, economist, and politician. The original German text was composed in 1904 and 1905, and was translated into English for the first time by American sociologist Talcott Parsons in 1930. It is considered a founding text in economic sociology.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Protestant_Ethic_a...talism
Weber was a German economist who wrote a number of essays in the early 1900s in which he linked levels of economic development to the prevailing religious beliefs and ethical standards of various nations. His observation was that the countries of Northern Europe (Germany, Scandinavia, and the UK) and North America – were doing much better in economic development because people there were guided by Protestant values such as individualism, entrepreneurship, and thrift to a greater extent than the countries of Southern Europe, where Catholicism did not emphasize such values. Of course, Weber’s was a challenge to Marx’s class struggle theory that discounted the connection. For the sake of argument I would also add the book “Esau’s Tears: Modern Anti-Semitism And The Rise Of The Jews.”[51]Esau’s Tears: Modern Anti-semitism And The Rise Of The Jews. By Albert Lindeman. https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=98...-_-bdp

If Stephens assumes that the interaction of Jews and non-Jews has involved just one guilty party, Lindeman, reviewing outbreaks of modern “Anti-Semitism”, allows that sometimes it was a reaction to certain patterns of Jewish behavior about which even Karl Marx complained. Metaphorically, Lindeman links it with the cultural habits derived from the Jewish Bible, such as the story of Jacob cheating his tween brother Esau of his first-born right by conspiring with his mother Rebecca to deceive her husband Isaac in order “to get her way.[52]When Esau learns of his brother’s thievery, he begs his father to undo the blessing. Isaac responds to his eldest son’s plea by saying that he could not reverse the sacred blessing. Esau vows to kill Jacob (Genesis 27:41). Rebecca intervenes to save her younger son from being murdered by his elder twin brother, Esau. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esau

Where I do agree with Bret Stephens is his statement quoting Einstein: “There is a moral belief, “incarnate in the Jewish people” according to Einstein, that “the life of the individual only has value [insofar] as it aids in making the life of every living thing nobler and more beautiful.” Einstein is indeed so important for modern thinking that when I was recently writing the essay Mahatma Gandhi and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the Two Giants Who Blessed the 20th Century, suggesting the need to replace Professor Huntington’s “Clash of Civilizations” with a Saving the Planet paradigm, I was tempted to add Albert Einstein to the duo.

Einstein cherished his friendship with Gandhi. Indeed, all three—Gandhi, Solzhenitsyn and Einstein—lifted themselves above one’s ethnicity, country and religion to show the ways for Saving the Planet. I also added Martin Luther King Jr., who reproached America for ignoring the Christian commandment “to turn the other cheek,” but instead rushing into unprovoked wars.

It was not accidental that Einstein befriended Gandhi: both were ardent critics of the violent roots of the Israeli state. Einstein was among those outstanding Jewish American thinkers who on December 4, 1948 signed a letter to The New York Times condemning Menahem Begin’s visit to the USA, “Lest America be fooled by post-Independence rhetoric, the Herut party Begin led was ‘closely akin to the Nazi and Fascist parties,” they wrote.[53]This Day in Jewish History. 1948: N.Y. Times Publishes Letter by Einstein, Other Jews Accusing Menachem Begin of Fascism. https://www.haaretz.com/jewish/.premium-1948-n-y-tim...340057

Alas, the 20th century showed that, very tragically, the most dynamic young Jews of the world were attracted to two opposite extremes: either exclusive race-based Zionist nationalism or all-embracing abstract Communist internationalism. Both extremes rely on violence. Both pretend to have a strong popular mandate. It does not help that lately Zionism got a tremendous boost from the American Neocons trying to turn it into Zionist globalism.

If Israel is to continue to exist, it is only on the terms of Martin Buber, perhaps the greatest Jewish philosopher: “The task of Israel as a distinct nation (is) inexorably linked to the task of humanity in general“. For starters, we all should follow the Golden Rule: “Do not do onto the other what you don’t want to be done to you”. It is expected from the Jews no less. As Hillel the Elder (c. 110 BC – 10 AD) advised someone who wanted to convert to Judaism, “What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow: this is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn“.

Notes

[1] Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein, 1879 –1940) was a Soviet revolutionary, whose particular strain of Marxism is known as Trotskyism. Initially supporting the Mensheviks within the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, he joined the Bolsheviks just before the 1917 October Revolution, immediately becoming a member of the Politburo to manage the Bolshevik Revolution.

During the early days of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) and the Soviet Union, he was People’s Commissar for Foreign Affairs and later commander of the Red Army, with the title of People’s Commissar of Military and Naval Affairs. He was a major figure in the Bolshevik victory in the Civil War (1918–1922).

Defeated in a struggle against Stalin in the 1920s, he was removed as Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs (January 1925), from the Politburo (October 1926), the Central Committee (October 1927), and expelled from the Communist Party (November 1927). Exiled to Alma–Ata (January 1928) and then from the USSR (February 1929). As the head of the Fourth International, Trotsky continued to oppose the Stalinist rule in the USSR from exile.

Trotsky was assassinated in Mexico City by Ramón Mercader, a Spanish-born NKVD agent. On 20 August 1940, Mercader attacked Trotsky with an ice axe and Trotsky died the next day in a hospital.

[6] About Cultural Marxism controversy read The Guardian 2015 report:

It begins in the 1910s and 1920s. When the socialist revolution failed to materialise beyond the Soviet Union, Marxist thinkers like Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukacs tried to explain why. Their answer was that culture and religion blunted the proletariat’s desire to revolt, and the solution was that Marxists should carry out a “long march through the institutions” – universities and schools, government bureaucracies and the media – so that cultural values could be progressively changed from above. The conspiracy theorists claim that these “cultural Marxists” began to use insidious forms of psychological manipulation to upend the west. Then Nazism forced the (mostly Jewish) members of the Frankfurt School to move to America and got a chance to undermine the culture and values that had sustained the world’s most powerful capitalist nation.

With the notable exception of Lenin, most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in 1917-20 were Jews. Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) headed the Red Army and then, was chief of Soviet foreign affairs. Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon) was both the Bolshevik party’s executive secretary and — as chairman of the Central Executive Committee — head of the Soviet government. Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky) headed the Communist International (Comintern), the central agency for spreading revolution in foreign countries. Other prominent Jews included press commissar Karl Radek (Sobelsohn), foreign affairs commissar Maxim Litvinov (Wallach), Lev Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Moisei Uritsky. Lenin himself was of mostly Russian ancestry, but he was also one-quarter Jewish. His maternal grandfather, Israel Blank, was a Ukrainian Jew who was later baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church.

Although most of the books hardly emphasized the point, anyone with a careful eye for the occasional sentence or paragraph would surely know that Jews were enormously over-represented among the top revolutionaries, with three of Lenin’s five potential successors— Trotsky, Zinoviev, and Kamenev—all coming from that background, along with many, many others within the top Communist leadership. Obviously, this was wildly disproportionate in a country having a Jewish population of perhaps 4%, and surely helped explain the large spike in worldwide hostility towards Jews soon afterward, which sometimes took the most deranged and irrational forms, such as the popularity of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and Henry Ford’s notorious publication of The International Jew. https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-the-bolshevik-revolution-and-its-aftermath/

While at the University at Bonn, Marx joined the Poets’ Club, a group containing political radicals that were monitored by the police. He also joined the Trier Tavern Club drinking society, at one point serving as club co-president. He was also involved in serious disputes: in August 1836 he took part in a duel with a member of the university’s Borussian Korps.

Freud was born to Galician Jewish parents in the Moravian town of Freiberg. He qualified as a doctor of medicine in 1881 at the University of Vienna. Upon completing his habilitation in 1885, he was appointed a docent in neuropathology and became an affiliated professor in 1902. He set up his clinical practice in Vienna in 1886. In 1938, he left Austria to escape the Nazis and died in the UK in 1939. Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference. Freud’s redefinition of sexuality led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as the central tenet of psychoanalytical theory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmund_Freud

The 90th anniversary of the massacre of the Romanovs in Yekaterinburg has been raised to a new level thanks to the city of Perm. Since 1991, a growing number of Russians have argued that the last legitimate ruler of Russia was not Nicholas II, but his younger brother Michael. Their cause got a mighty boost — from Britain: Donald Crawford, The Last Tsar: Emperor Michael II. http://www.themoscowtimes.com/opinion/article/the-last-tsar-was-michael-not-nicholas/369032.html#ixzz2TuIdx5nE

[26] Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884 – 10 March 1937), was a Russian author of science fiction and political satire. He is most famous for his 1921 novel We, a story set in a dystopian future police state. Despite having been a prominent Old Bolshevik, Zamyatin was deeply disturbed by the policies pursued by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union following the October Revolution. In 1921, WE became the first work banned by the Soviet censorship. Ultimately, Zamyatin arranged for WE to be smuggled to the West for publication. The subsequent outrage this sparked within the Party and the Union of Soviet Writers led to Zamyatin’s successful bid for exile from his homeland. Due to his use of literature to criticize Soviet society, Zamyatin has been referred to as one of the first Soviet dissidents. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Zamyatin

[31] Vasily Grossman (1905 –1964) was a Soviet writer of Jewish origin. He trained as a chemical engineer at Moscow State University. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was engaged as a war correspondent by the Red Army newspaper and wrote first-hand accounts of the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk and Berlin. Grossman’s eyewitness reports of a Nazi extermination camp near Treblinka were among the first accounts of a Nazi death camp. While Grossman was never arrested, his two major literary works (Life and Fate and Forever Flowing) were deemed anti-Soviet, and Grossman became a nonperson. The KGB raided Grossman’s flat after he had completed Life and Fate, seizing manuscripts. He was told by the Communist Party’s chief ideologist Mikhail Suslov that the book could not be published for two or three hundred years. At the time of Grossman’s death in 1964 these books remained unreleased. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasily_Grossman

  1. Extracted from the essay by Vladimir Moss titled “Russia and the Jews: 1856-1917”, mentioned above, and based largely on Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s “Two Hundred Years Together”.

    http://www.orthodoxchristianbooks.com/articles/886/russia-jews,-1856-1917/

    “A member of the Union of [Jewish] Complete Equality, A. Kulisher, drew the truthful conclusion – but late, looking back at the past in the émigré Jewish Tribune in 1923: ‘In Russian-Jewish society before the revolution there really were people and whole groups whose activity can be characterized precisely as… the absence of a feeling of responsibility for the turmoil in the minds of Russian Jewry… the spreading of an indefinite and light-minded ‘revolutionism’… The whole essence of their politics consisted in being more leftist than anyone else. Always remaining in the role of irresponsible critics, never going to the end, they saw their purpose in saying: ‘Not enough!’… These people were ‘democrats’… But there were also democrats who called themselves ‘The Jewish Democratic Group’ who attached this adjective to every unsuitable noun, composing an intolerable Talmud of democratism… They created around themselves an irresponsible mood of groundless maximalism, with no precise limit to their demands. This mood manifested itself with destructive consequences in the revolution.’ The destructiveness proceeding from this press was indeed one of the weakest, most vulnerable points in the Russian State by 1914 and 1917…”

    It is hard not to notice the similarities with the present-day West. There is no limit to the demands of revolutionaries, even though now they are played out in the arena of identity politics, with demands ranging from reparations for slavery, to the right of men in drag to use the women’s locker room. Perhaps Marx was right that history repeats itself, first as tragedy and then as farce.

    Marx was a crazy whose theories nobody understood. State owned industries might be called Marxist but they are just dictatorships with a Marxist facade. Xi owns most of china’s industries, the rest are owned by American corporations. He calls it Marxism with Chinese characteristics. China is slowly becoming capitalistic with Chinese characteristics.

    If we enumerate the total number of lives saved by the twenty-six Jewish individuals listed below using a pro rata scheme according to which each of the individuals associated with a given development is credited with an equal share of the total lives saved by that development (see computations below), then the resulting number comes to about 2.8 billion lives, which is 50% of the estimated total of about 5.6 billion lives saved by all 105 individuals listed. If, on the other hand, we simply enumerate the total number of lives saved by advances for which at least 50% of the principal developers were Jewish, the number comes to about 4.3 billion lives, or roughly 77% of the total number of lives saved.2

  9. A very interesting piece. There’s a lot to chew over here. Some of it I agree with, and some of it I don’t; but one way or another, it was worth the time I spent reading it. This is why Unz is now one of my favorite websites.

    I don’t have time to re-litigate the entire article, so for now, just a few remarks:

    … Hanna Arendt (1906 – 1975) … pointed out the similarity of both the Nazi and Soviet regimes in their totalitarian essence … The common denominator of the two kinds of totalitarianism was reliance on violence in domestic and foreign affairs.

    Calling the Third Reich ‘totalitarian’, as opposed to merely authoritarian, is a stretch. The government allowed Germans (and many foreigners) to come and go more or less at will, and Germans–even NSDAP members–were allowed to be religiously observant if they wished. Only later, once Germany was enmeshed in a two-front war (1942-45), did the government become something more like totalitarian, of necessity.

    Alas, the greatest electoral support for an unthinking pro-Israel US foreign policy under Donald Trump comes not from US Jews but from the evangelical wing of Protestantism, the so called Christian Zionists.

    Sheldon Adelson, Bernard Marcus, Paul Singer, Jared Kushner … good Christians all! But seriously, while I don’t mean to defend or excuse Trump’s shameless Zio-pandering, I hope you don’t fall for that classic gate-keeper story about those oh-so-powerful Christians ‘forcing’ the US government to do the bidding of Israel. After all, if those Christians had so much control over the US government, why is it that they still can’t get Roe overturned, or have the ban on prayer in school lifted, prevent gay marriage, or even tranny story-hour? Politically speaking, the Christians in America are just the captive constituency of one political party. In other words, Christian conservatives are to the Republican Party what Blacks are to the Democratic Party. Obviously, real political (and economic, and social) power in this country emanates from some other source.

    Weber was a German economist who wrote a number of essays in the early 1900s in which he linked levels of economic development to the prevailing religious beliefs and ethical standards of various nations. His observation was that the countries of Northern Europe (Germany, Scandinavia, and the UK) and North America – were doing much better in economic development because people there were guided by Protestant values such as individualism, entrepreneurship, and thrift to a greater extent than the countries of Southern Europe, where Catholicism did not emphasize such values.

    Weber’s ‘Protestant work-ethic’ idea was demolished long ago–and Weber himself, coming from Germany, should have known better from the start. After all, if you compare the Protestant regions of the Rhineland with the Catholic ones, you can easily see that there are no appreciable difference in productivity or median incomes, once other variables have been controlled for–and that was true even before modern Germany was united into one state in 1871.

    Alas, the 20th century showed that, very tragically, the most dynamic young Jews of the world were attracted to two opposite extremes: either exclusive race-based Zionist nationalism or all-embracing abstract Communist internationalism. Both extremes rely on violence. Both pretend to have a strong popular mandate. It does not help that lately Zionism got a tremendous boost from the American Neocons trying to turn it into Zionist globalism.

    All true. But now the conflict in the West is between ‘Greater Israel’ Zionists on the one hand, and Neo-liberal Capitalist globalism on the other. So far, just like the 20th century, the 21st one looks to be yet another ‘Jewish century’.

    Care to make a list?

    I recently had an exchange on the internet with a black man about IQ. This was on Youtube and the video featured Charles Murray. He had all of the typical excuses why blacks could not succeed in school, etc. Finally, after multiple exchanges I asked him to name ten inventions Blacks made that Blacks used every day. He proudly answered with about thirty things that Blacks had invented, most before 1950 and very few were things that people would use daily. Among the inventions he listed were: the ironing board, the golf tee, and the public mail box. He listed several inventions that were minor accessories to cars and trains. He mentioned that a black man had co-invented the filament for the electric light bulb with Edison.

    When I read his response, I decided to look around my room and look at all the things that white people had “invented.” If you looked at things on a parts basis in my room it had to be many hundreds. Virtually everything in my room.

    Then I wondered about Jews since they have the highest IQ of all people. What in my room did they make? I really could not come up with anything that Jews had obviously invented. Reflecting on this further, I really had never seen Jews building much. Mostly they had white Christians building things for them. Reflecting on this further, I realized nearly all of these inventions were made by white men of Christian background.

    Then I thought about Asians. And in spite of the fact that much of the stuff I have is now made in China or some other Asian country, I know the Asians didn’t invent it either. They are just building white male Christian inventions now.

    These are the inventions that make our civilization what it is. Ordinary stuff, that somebody had to think needed making and made it. It damn sure looks like to me that European men of Christian background did damn near all of it. And they have not horded it. All over the world their inventions dominate. They did not keep these inventions to themselves.

    So I am going to ask you the same question that I asked the Black guy. Name ten things that Jews invented that Jews use every day. Let’s see what Jews have done to make things a bit easier for humanity.

    But there is a real problem.

    If you cannot criticize anyone of a particular group, then that group not only gets off free for past crimes, but they do worse and worse as time goes by.

    Criticism of guilty perpetrators of any sort… War Criminals, Theives, Liars. Whatever. Needs to be stepped up, not covered up.

    If Jews are protected from any criticism (truth telling about their misdeeds) then they will continue to get worse, until the blowback is epic.

    If I were a Jew (I’m not), I’d be horrified by what the Tribe does, and what it might mean one day for the Tribe’s descendents.

    Righteous Jews like Ron Unz, Gilad Atzmon, Stephen Lendman, and others (Saul of Tarsus!) saw the Truth, and made their decisions accordingly. I applaud them.

Politically speaking, the Christians in America are just the captive constituency of one political party. In other words, Christian conservatives are to the Republican Party what Blacks are to the Democratic Party.

    Hillel was author of Prozbul clause, which overturned jubilee injunction. In other words, Hillel is responsible for much of the usury mechanism that Jews operate. Hillel codified Creditor over Debtor as a relationship for man, rather than a balanced relation.

    From Wikipedia:

    The most famous of his enactments was the Prozbul, an institution that, in spite of the law concerning cancellation of debts in the Sabbatical year[12] ensured the repayment of loans. The motive for this institution was the “repair of the world”

It was fun to see as Khrushchev was being disposed, these Russian Civ gurus had little idea why. I was at the mentioned Hannah Arendt lecture & remember resenting her linking Communism & Fascism as I felt this was a libel against the Communism I believed I supported. Well, live & learn! I spent much time at the great Communist book store in downtown Chicago, Cross World Books & Periodicals, which had dubious looking people manning a lithograph in the back room, just like real Commie book stores were supposed to have. I bought my 47 volume “Complete Works of V.I. Lenin” there & lugged it around for several years thereafter. The Lenin is now long gone, but still on my shelf is the paperback edition of Mein Kampf, which I, like you, purchased at the time from the University of Chicago bookstore.

  24. ” . . . Einstein—lifted (himself) above one’s ethnicity, country and religion to show the ways for Saving the Planet.”

    Not quite correct. I have a copy of a letter from Einstein to Roosevelt, in which he almost frantically recommends that the US quickly begin constructing atomic bombs. Not only that, he informs Roosevelt that he has friends who offer to provide the entire financing for the development of these weapons (if he, Einstein) would be entrusted with management of the project.

    He wrote, “… extremely powerful bombs of a new type may thus be constructed. A single bomb of this type, carried by boat and exploded in a port, might very well destroy the whole port together with some of the surrounding territory. I am convinced as to the wisdom and the urgency of creating the conditions under which that and related work can be carried out with greater speed and on a larger scale than hitherto”. He states that, as project manager, one of his tasks would be: “providing funds … through his contacts with private persons who are willing to make contributions for this cause.”

    Below is an extract from one of my as-yet unpublished manuscripts:

    One of the greatest mythical frauds in history is that of Albert Einstein, the famous physicist who invented the Theory of Relativity, E=mc² and so many other esoteric things. But this is all fabrication. The claims about Einstein inventing any theory of relativity, or light and photons, or time, are false. Almost every claim – almost everything – attributed to Einstein is simply a lie. Einstein was an inept who contributed nothing original to the field of quantum mechanics, nor any other science. Far from being a competent physicist, he once even flatly denied that the atom could be split and, much later, admitted that the idea of a chain reaction in fissile material “had never occurred to me”. (2) (3)

    In the accepted historical account, Einstein is credited with having written the correct field equations for general relativity, an enormous falsehood. It is an undisputed fact that David Hilbert sent Einstein a draft of his work (which had already been submitted for publication), containing precisely these equations, evidenced by the existence of a letter from Einstein to Hilbert thanking him for doing so. Yet a few weeks later, Einstein delivered a public speech of Hilbert’s work, claiming full credit for the derivation of Hilbert’s equations. Similarly, E=mc², the famous equation relating mass, energy, and the speed of light, had been published several times by Italian physicist Olinto De Pretto, long before Einstein was suddenly given credit for it. In multiple thorough reviews of scientific literature, prominent scientists have unanimously stated that there is “absolutely nothing to connect Einstein to the derivation of this formula.” (5)

    Perhaps the most damning evidence was when in 1953 Sir Edmund Whittaker published a very detailed account of the origin and development of all these theories and equations of physics, with extensive reference to the primary sources, documenting beyond doubt that Einstein had no priority in any of it, and clearly stating so. Einstein was alive and well when Whittaker published his book, yet he offered no dispute to the conclusions, no refutation of Whittaker’s claim that he (Einstein) had been irrelevant to the entire process. Einstein made no attempts in his own defense but simply hid in the bushes and refused to make any public comment whatever. (6)

    Einstein was Jewish and had the support of the Jewish-controlled media who conspired to create yet another historical myth. His fame and popularity today, his status as a hero of the scientific world, are due only to decades of a well-planned force-feeding of the Einstein myth to the masses by the media. The propaganda machine simply airbrushed out of the history books all the physicists who formulated these theories, and credited everything to Einstein. Without the extravagant generations-long PR and propaganda campaign, Einstein would have remained in the dustbin of obscurity where he belongs.

    There are many Einstein apologists who produce reams of heavily-documented irrelevancies masquerading as proof, items such as a schoolmate who claimed “the flight of his mathematical genius was so high that I could no longer follow.” Many scientists and scientific historians know the truth of all this, and the accurate historical record is readily available, but many appear afraid to speak out for fear of damaging their careers. I have put the question to several prominent physicists in different countries, eliciting similar responses, namely that “it will not further one’s career to open a debate which will inevitably produce a tsunami of invective and slander, to say nothing of accusations of anti-Semitism.”

    History of Chinese Inventions. The Present and the Future. Recent Chinese State of the Art Innovation

    https://www.globalresearch.ca/history-of-chinese-inventions-the-present-and-the-future-recent-chinese-state-of-the-art-innovations/5692922

    Here is a brief quote:

    China as a nation has the longest and by far the most vast record of inventions in the history of the world. It is now reliably estimated that more than 60% of all the knowledge existing in the world today originated in China, a fact swept under the carpet by the West.

    Joseph Needham, a British biochemist, scientific historian, and professor at Cambridge University, is widely rated as one of the most outstanding intellectuals of the 20th century. Chinese students visiting at Cambridge repeatedly informed him that Western scientific methods and discoveries discussed in his classes originated in China centuries before. Needham was so intrigued that he became fully fluent in Chinese, then travelled to China to investigate. He discovered voluminous evidence of the truth of those claims and decided to remain in China to write a book to document what he deemed a discovery of great importance to the world. Needham never completed his task of cataloguing the history of Chinese invention. His one book became 26 books and he died in 1995, with his work still continued today by his students. One good introduction to this topic is Robert Temple’s summary of Needham’s work. (1)

    We were all taught in school that the printing press with movable type was invented in Germany by Johannes Gutenberg in about the year 1550. Not so. China not only invented paper but also the printing press with movable set type, which was in common use in China 1,000 years before Gutenberg was born. Similarly, we were taught that Englishman James Watt invented the steam engine. He did not. Steam engines were in widespread use in China 600 years before Watt was born. There are dated ancient texts and drawings to illustrate and prove the Chinese discovered and documented “Pascal’s Triangle” 600 years before Pascal copied it, and the Chinese enunciated Newton’s First Law of Motion 2,000 years before Newton.

    The same is true for thousands of inventions that the West now claim as theirs but where conclusive documentation exists to prove that they originated in China hundreds and sometimes thousands of years before the West copied them. It was not for nothing that Marco Polo is described in China as “Europe’s great thief”.

    As for the Jews, they invented the Holocaust, Zionism, Hasbara, the British and Dutch East India Companies, the South Seas Bubble, the Tulipmania bubble, privately-owned central banking, slavery, illegal organ trafficking, war marketing (Lippman and Bernays), the psychological and psychiatric foundations for advertising, the Consumer Society, revolutions and, most importantly, multi-party democracy – which served to end their expulsions from European countries after the destruction of all the monarchies. I am unaware of any products, and of few philosophies worthy of distinction which originated from this group.

    And yes, Unz, Atzmon, Lendman, Chomsky, Zinn, and many similar do indeed deserve applause and medals for courage. And no, Jews do not have the highest IQ of all national groups. That distinction is reserved for the Chinese – the world’s greatest slant-eyed threats who eat your dogs and carry infectious viruses while making all the cheap crap at Wal-Mart.

    Most White nationalist types secretly acknowledge that Jews are biologically superior to European Gentiles, but since their ideology hinges on a racial hierarchy, many will flip out in the same manner an SJW would if you mentioned Black-White differences.

    You will for example find that many try to prove that Einstein was a fraud and copied everything from White Gentiles, this is like Blacks claiming how Whites stole all their ideas and didn’t give them credit.

    I personally don’t see how White Gentiles are not capable of conspiring together. The White nationalist claim of Nordic superiority seems a little shady when they also say that a group whose size is 40 times smaller than their own is oppressing them all.

    Jews are particularly scary to White nationalists because of how smart they are, not just in ‘soft’ subjects like humanities where it can be argued that they simply have the gift of the gab and are indeed only good for huckstering, but they also seem to dominate the ‘hard’ sciences. I certainly know from my studies in computer science that Jews have made great contributions to that particular field, but I also believe the invention of the atomic bomb was a very Jewish affair.

    It also seems odd that Jews, despite being a distinct group, were allowed into Western society so easily. The moan conspiracy seems to be a joint one with certain Jews and Masonic lodges, both of whom are the epitome of ‘elite’

    Overall, the IQ HBD debate is not very useful from a WN point of view because

    1. It’s implications are at minimum, that all immigrants should be IQ tested and the ones who score high should be let in, many of these will be non-White

    2. It also implies Jews are much smarter than Whites, in fact the difference between White Gentiles and Jews is around the same as the difference between White Gentiles and African-American Blacks.

  29. from the JVP solicitation to Sign the Petition:

    I was appalled when I saw the latest column from New York Times writer Bret Stephens. He claims that white Ashkenazi Jews have genetically superior intellects, and backs up this claim with a bogus study from a white supremacist eugenics “expert.”

    This is race science – the same ideology that has inspired violence and genocide against Jewish people – and we can’t let it stand. Sign our petition to demand The New York Times fire Bret Stephens for this gross abuse of his platform.

    Virtue-signalling JVP is somehow ignorant (or in denial) of the fact that eugenics is baked into the foundation of zionism, and that “Jewish genius” is present in “Indo-Germanic” Jews but not in Semitic Jews, whose contribution to Jewishness is “avarice”:

    [I]n all his writings Ruppin explicitly stressed the superiority of the Ashkenazi Jews over the Sephardic-Oriental Jews in intelligence, creativity, mathematical ability, agility, imagination and hygiene (Ruppin 1931b, 59-60), morality,153 and, above all, in their “life force” or in their Lebenszähigkeit the “powerful struggle for life” – this bio-mystic force – which enables the Volk and the individual to survive in the struggle for existence (Daseinskampf). He claimed that this force, which immunized the Ashkenazi Jews, did not exist in the Sephardic- Oriental Jews. Such distinctions and speculations led Ruppin to conclude that the Semitic element in the Jewish Volk was declining, and that the superior Jewish elements were related to the Indo-Germanic family rather than to that of the Semites (Ruppin 1913a, 214; 1933, 29). [emphasis added]

    Ruppin’s theory, which defined Judaism in terms of race and saw the Ashkenazim as its Ur (original) and vital element in the modern era, enabled him to distance the Jews from the Semitic race and hence to accept European race theories concerning the inferiority of that race. It was not the Jews who were avaricious, it was the Semites. For him, the healthy original Jews, who were responsible for the good qualities of Jewish culture, belonged to the Ashkenazi Indo-Germanic race. Though some Ashkenazi Jews preserved some Semitic elements (responsible for example for their uncontrollable greed), “modern race research” proved that the Semitic element in the Jewish Volk was slowly diminishing. In the same manner, the Ashkenazi Zionist national revival demonstrated how the natural eugenic process of Mother Nature herself gradually weeded out the racial and cultural Semitic elements. This explanation preserved Ruppin’s model of self-differentiation. He could accept the premise of his reference group and legitimize his belonging to it but he had, at the same time, to project the qualities of the ‘bad Jews’ onto the ‘other Jews’ – the Semites with their “orientalische” and “ostische” Keimplasma, and to free himself in that way from the threat they posed to his cultural identity and biological fantasy.

    . . .Ruppin’s racial theory concerning the Sephardic-Oriental Jews was the pretext and rationale for establishing their position in the new Jewish Volk as dysgenic factors, and, as such, marking them out as an immanent threat to the regeneration of the “new [Ashkenazi] Jew.”

    In my mind, the White races were able to achieve this intellectual freedom due to th subjugation of the Colored races. While the Colored races toiled away on the fields, Whites were free to think, and a small percentage of the Whites freed from physical labour were able to do great things.

    Likewise, Jews do not really bother with things like bricklaying or joinery, they require White people to do it, or in the case of Israel, Palestinian and Chinese guest workers.

    However this allows them to achieve more high-minded things. One of the list profound Jewish inventions is the atomic bomb, look at the names of the people on the Manhattan Project and you will notice something about their ethnic background. Jews now hold the key to the ability to destroy a good part of humanity. This is just in addition to the the various things Jews have invented that the commenter you are replying to mentioned.

    Despite only being 0.2% of the world population, Jews have received 20% of the Nobel prizes.

    Of course Jews are not just one big group of loveable people who believe in equality and human rights, and their malign influence must be countered without fear, but it is delusional to think they have contributed nothing positive

    You should read this book for more information regarding Jewish achievement, written by Richard Lynn who did the heavy lifting in determining national IQ scores.

  32. Of course, Ashkenazi Jews are genetically superior, at least as far as intelligence, creativity, business and organizational skill are concerned. Or do you deny the role of genetics in intelligence?

    Thus, unless Jews are expressly verboten, they will have a disproportionate influence on any movement—be it intellectual, political, commercial or artistic. Anything but cooking or playing sports. Thus, it is not Jews’ strong influence in human affairs that should raise questions, but rather, their presence in a society, without them having such influence. For instance, one does not wonder that the Germans, Japanese, or Chinese are disproportionately influential in world affairs. That is to be expected.

    You wrote:

    Weber’s ‘Protestant work-ethic’ idea was demolished long ago–and Weber himself, coming from Germany, should have known better from the start. After all, if you compare the Protestant regions of the Rhineland with the Catholic ones, you can easily see that there are no appreciable difference in productivity or median incomes, once other variables have been controlled for–and that was true even before modern Germany was united into one state in 1871.

    During my working years (now long behind me) I have taught about Weber over a long period and your claim about the demise of his famous thesis about the Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism was news to me. Happily it is fake news.

    The debate about the thesis was often based on a misconception. Weber didn’t claim that protestantism was a causative factor for capitalism. He didn’t even claim that the protestant ethic provided the basis for the “spirit of capitalism”. He merely pointed to the “elective affinity” (“Wahlverwandtschaft”) between one and the other.

    So all those who. like Braudel, pointed to capitalist activity in the pre-protestant medieval Italian cities or , like Sombart , pointed to the role of the Jews in capitalist development and believed that these matters provided a refutation of “the Weber thesis” were targetting a straw man.

    The same holds for your observation about the protestant and catholic regions of the Rhineland. Weber’s thesis didn’t imply that catholic regions would necessarily show lower productivity and median incomes than protestant ones.

    Incidentally, I found your patronising remark about what Weber “should have known better from the start”rather offensive. Weber was a superb economic historian (his first full professorship was in economics at a time that that discipline still had largely a historical character in Germany)

    However since you chose median incomes as one criterion to judge Weber’s thesis, however mistakenly, I will refer you to an article in which that has also been done, for a more relevant period.:

    Blum, Ulrich; Dudley, Leonard (February 2001), “Religion and Economic Growth: Was Weber Right?” (PDF), Journal of Evolutionary Economics, 11 (2): 207–230,

    These authors come to the following result:

    Evidence of falling wages in Catholic cities and rising wages in Protestant cities between 1500 and 1750, during the spread of literacy in the vernacular, is inconsistent with most theoretical models of economic growth. In The Protestant Ethic, Weber suggested an alternative explanation based on culture. Here, a theoretical model confirms that a small change in the subjective cost of cooperating with strangers can generate a profound transformation in trading networks. In explaining urban growth in early-modern Europe, specifications compatible with human-capital versions of the neoclassical model and endogenous-growth theory are rejected in favor of a “small-world” formulation based on the Weber thesis.

  41. Here’s another in the long list of Jewish geniuses: Bernie Madoff.

    Apparently, Bernie is seeking ‘compassionate early release’ from his 150 year sentence for defrauding billions from his clients. He has been incarcerated for just eleven years of that sentence, and has been in the ‘palliative care’ section of the prison since last summer (i.e., no more forced labor work details for Bernie.)

    He claims he has ‘terminal kidney disease’ (yet refuses dialysis treatment), cardiovascular disease and hypertension (which most Americans at his age do.)

    He claims he has no assets (as he apparently never hid a single solitary dime in any Swiss accounts for either himself or his family/friends) and would support himself through Social Security and Medicare, and will live with “a friend”. No mention who this friend is, but we can surmise the friend will likewise be in dire poverty and they will both live like paupers, with Bernie working at Walmart in his 70’s, or worse, begging for handouts like so many Americans do today.

    He claims he has less than 18 months to live (give or take another 20 years), and seeks compassionate release in his final days.

    He says, “I’ve served eleven years already, and quite frankly, I’ve suffered through it.” Apparently believes he has atoned fully for his crimes, because unlike any other convict in America today, he has suffered in prison (which is not what punishment should ever be about.)

    Here is the article where all these facts are gleaned: https://sputniknews.com/us/202002061078241297-ponzi-schemer-bernie-madoff-dying-asks-judge-early-release/

    Why do I get the feeling that if he gets the early release, he will (despite his horrible, terrible ill health) somehow find the strength (and funds) to travel to Israel, undergo a miraculous recovery (due solely to Jewish medical genius in finding cures for all of his ailments, like dialysis combined with a good diet with exercise), and live his ‘final days’ with his new (wealthy) friends on the beach in Tel-Aviv…… for another 20+ years.

    Many of the smartest and most dynamic Jews most definitely did *not* see themselves forced to choose between two extremisms. Such as Albert Einstein. There really are better things to do with one’s life.

    Dynamic young Jews *chose* to follow their noses unerringly to extremist positions.
    The real question to be answered is: Why were they attracted to extremist ideologies?
    Instead of, say, practicing their (awful) religion, assimilating in other respects, and just getting on with their lives?
    Could it be that, instead, the Jews had/have a “Messiah” complex?

    In a paper he wrote in 1907, in part responding to already-virulent accusations of plagiarism, Einstein declared that plagiarism was perfectly acceptable as a form of ethical research, stating “… the nature [of physics is] that what follows has already been partly solved by other authors. I am [therefore] entitled to leave out a thoroughly pedantic survey of the literature…” In other words, scientists all build on each others’ work, so Einstein could freely compile the work of everyone before him and re-present it as his own, with no obligation to even mention them or their work. His view of ethical science was like building a tower where each person adds one stone and, if I add the last stone, I not only take credit for the entire design and construction of the tower, but I own the building.

    I wouldn’t agree, simply because I’m not very impressed by the entire IQ way of thinking. As I’ve commented before: Jews are, of course, over-represented in many fields, but so were, say, Italians in Florence from 1300-1600 (Dante, Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Machiavelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo,…), or Germans from 1770-1830 (Hamann, Herder, Kant, Hegel, Euler, Goethe, Gauss, Mozart, Beethoven, Clausewitz, Scheele, Grimm brothers, Humboldt brothers,..) & later- which dwarfs all Jewish achievement put together.

    During some historical periods, some groups are high achievers. From ca. 1850-2000 Jews have been super-achievers; from 1750-1945, “Aryan” Germans had been hyper-achievers. What is more interesting about Jews is that they so easily dumped their middle Eastern way of life, which sustained them for 2000 years & so enthusiastically embraced European culture- something we don’t see among Pakistanis in Britain or Moroccans in France.

    And I won’t mention ancient Greeks, those mortal gods.

    “To the extent that you are attempting to state true facts you raise, by implication, interesting questions about the loss or under use of inventions and scientific knowledge. Why did the Chinese not produce an industrial revolution?”

    That’s a fair question. The answer is that just when China was on the cusp of its industrial revolution, Rothschild (who was then in India with his British East India Company) got the bright idea of forcing Indian farmers to grow opium instead of food, and David Sassoon (a Baghdad Jew) got the bright idea of forcing it onto China. Rotschild managed to convince Queen Victoria to use the British military as the Banker’s Private Army to ensure success, and Sassoon managed to convince Queen Victoria to give him the exclusive franchise for selling the opium in China.

    That was why Hong Kong was separated from China. Sassoon needed a port and a distribution center. And that’s why the HSBC was formed – to launder the drug money from Rothschild, Sassoon, Kadoorie, Hartung, Moller, and more. Sassoon was the first Chairman of the Board.

    The West chooses to ignore the fact that the 200-year hiatus in China’s innovation was due almost entirely to their own military invasions, when the West was ravaging and destroying the nation. China’s development, social progress, and invention, ceased only from the invasions by both the Americans and Europeans, and most especially with the Jews’ vast program of trafficking in opium in China.

    Perhaps of more direct interest is that China’s lag in current technology is, more than anything else, an unfortunate accident of fate that occurred during a blip in time. After Mao evicted all the foreigners and China shook off the effects of 200 years of foreign interference and plundering to begin the transition to an industrialised economy, this was precisely when the world of electronics and communication exploded. It was during that brief period of a couple of decades that computers, the Internet, mobile phones and so much more, were conceived and patented by the West. Virtually the entire process passed China by, because during that brief period the nation was entirely enveloped in the fundamentals of its economic and social revolution, and in no position to participate.

    China’s lack of patents and IP in the field of electronics today is due neither to Western superiority nor Chinese lack of innovation, but to Western aggression. The accumulation of American and European patents was in no way due to Western supremacy in innovation but to the absence of the Chinese.

    Indeed, with massive Western support for the Jewish state of Israel, it is time for Jews to make the choice: move to Israel or give up your dual nationality and with it the treasonous tendency to undermine the nation among which you reside, the better to manage events to your own advantage.

    European Gentile philosophers do like to talk a lot and write lots of self-aggrandising essays, but Jewish philosophy is superior as only a superior philosophy can allow a people who are not more than 0.15% of the world population to have such away over the world, Jewish experience and learned knowledge is the pinnacle human philosophy as one needs not only intelligence to get to the top, but also a deep understanding of human nature.

    European philosophy has just been propagandists, I don’t find any of it that impressive and it serves only to reveal the weakness of European ethnic people’s, in that the philosophy they produce is just mental exercise to prove ‘look how smart and sophisticated I am’ rather than anything useful.

    As Adolf Eichmann said

    We would have fulfilled our duty to our blood and our people and to the freedom of the peoples, if we had exterminated the most cunning intellect of all the human intellects alive today.

Was it yesterday or the day before, or a year ago, I don’t know, I heard or read: even before the Romans had their state, before Rome had even been founded, the Jews there were able to write. This is an understatement. They should have said, aeons before the Romans erected their state, aeons before the very founding of Rome itself, they were able to write. Look at the tablets of the Ten Commandments. Look at a race that today has recourse to, may I just say, six thousand years of written history, a race that has been making laws for let us say five thousand years or six thousand years – and I am not wrong, I believe, when I estimate a seventh millennium. The fact that the Christian church today makes use of this lawmaking is very depressing for me. But it tells me that this must be a race of the first order of magnitude, since lawmakers have always been great. And because of these realizations I fought against this enemy.

    At most we can include three Jewish great philosophers, Spinoza, Husserl, Wittgenstein – rest are European.

    Spinoza was ignored and expelled by Amsterdam’s Jews. It was in Amsterdam where about 700 unlicensed Sephardic Jews invented gets/puts, shorting, front running, stocks sold immediately for cash, stocks sold on margin, Monthly and Future settlement dates, and many of the other stock market usury style scams they operate today to steal from the public weal.

    Spinoza’s story is today’s Jewish world. (Also Jews being kicked out of countries for operating the usury mechanism stopped when “democracy” overcame Kingdom’s – yet more kikery and Tikkun on the world.)

    Jewish publishing manipulations were evident in refusal to publish Baruch Spinoza (1632-77). Early on, our Jewish friends were seizing and controlling publishing to then control the narrative. The top money Jews of Amsterdam offered Spinoza 1000 florins a year if he would conform in PUBLIC to Jewish ways of life.

    But, because Spinoza refused to compromise in his rejection of Talmudic dogma, he was formally cursed and expelled. Formally cursed and expelled from the community in 1656.

    Amsterdam’s Christian community accepted him, but he soon died at the age of 35.

    So, this story is a microcosm of the Jewish parasitic method that continues to infect us today. Take usury on a population by sneaky means, using the price system – in this case it was the stock market. Move on to buy up and control the press. Use your illicit gains and in-group method to then buy up and control important sectors of the economy. For example, Amsterdam’s Jews ended up owning 25% of Dutch East India Company.

    From this launching pad, they maneuvered loans and printed bibles (at much expense) to then infect Britain, another sea-faring power. The new usury parasite method was honed in Amsterdam, then jumped to London, and ultimately to the U.S. (another sea power).

    High intelligence and capability of any Jewish individual, is overwhelmed by parasitic method of top Jews and enforced tribal behavior. Would the world be better off if we had high IQ sharks plying the ocean?

    No high trust civilization can evolve to a higher level, when a parasitic in-group is using that trust to take rents and usury.

    For instance:

    Of course, the essence of Communist rule was in plain sight since 1917. And yet, after initial assistance to the so-called “White Russian Armies” of insurgents against Bolshevik rule during the Russian Civil War (1918-1922), the United States and the rest of the Free World did little to resist the virus of Communism until the USSR fell under its own weight at the end of 1991.

    “The Free World did little to resist …” WTF. What does this idiot think the Cold War was, NATO, the Korean war, the Vietnam war, the US Strategic Air Command designed to wipe out the entire population of both Russia and China, the race to the Moon, if not resistance to Communism?

    How much more blood and treasure does this idiot think the Western nations should have spent to “resist the virus of Communism.” And it’s not as if the “virus of Communism” was not understood from the moment of the revolution. Despite the exhaustion of war, Winston Churchill, in 1918 sought to provide support to the anti-Bolshevik Whites in Russia, an effort defeated by Bolshy British dock workers. And even those on the Liberal left were totally anti-Communist, Bertrand Russell, for example, writing:

    Philosopher Jew, Gilad Atzom, has an interesting take on things. He divides the world between Athens and Jerusalem. Gilad’s former tribemates are trying to take him out, the same way they did to Spinoza.

    It is two world views at odds. Jerusalem is dogmatic and my way or the highway, using a Kritarchy and usury funded hypnosis, while Athens is one of divining the truth through debate and searching for the logos. The logos method is to find balance, to find beauty, to find truth.

    It is also old testament vs new testament. Jesus would be Athens while old testament Yaweh God would be Jerusalem.

    In my opinion the latest Talmudic god is Moloch, as the Jewish religion became new (post 73 AD) when verbal tradition of Kaballah (Moloch) became written down into Talmud.

    Who really cares who is the smartest… it is already established that it was the ancient Greeks, probably to never be duplicated again.

    What really matters is that we have a devilishly smart in-group in our midst, whose presence cannot be construed as beneficial.

    A number of names on your list have dubious claims to saving lives.
    Artificial fertilizers have destroyed natural soil balance, and led to the collapse of rice crops in SE Asia.
    Vaccines have been shown to cause as much or more harm than good. There are statistics that suggest the polio vaccine caused as many cases as it prevented. Measles had essentially become so common it was no longer a threat to life as it had been a century earlier. It was a Gentile, Edward Jenner, who discovered the positive effects of vaccinations. At the end of the day, it is the strength of your immune system that really counts, and diet has an enormous impact on that. Factory farming as a cause of poorer quality foods.

    As for things like mammograms, they wouldn’t have existed if not for Crooks and Roentgen. Mammograms themselves have been considered as causing breast cancer. How many lives saved vs how many lives lost due to the radiation “kick-starting” malignant tumours? Other modalities, such as photography with concentrated high intensity light in a darkened room, were suppressed.

    I recognize most of the people on your list have made remarkable discoveries. My objection is to the projection of the number of lives saved, without factoring in the harm done.

    I had measles before there was a vaccine, and so did many others in my elementary school.
    About 25 years ago, I heard a speech regarding the drive for the Human Genome Project, where the speaker claimed it, and vaccinations were all about Big Pharma. The speaker, who was in his late 50s asked the audience to ask themselves the questions: Whom do I know who has died or suffered the debilitating effects of measles, and do you know anyone who knows someone who has died or suffered from the debilitating effects of measles ? His answer was “No”. I did my own survey, and found the same answer. I have friends that had polio, pre vaccine, and all but one has had no residual effects.

    There have been recent measles outbreaks in areas where vaccinations have been given. All that comes back to the speaker’s theory that humans adjust to diseases. Just as the medieval plague and a century ago, “Spanish” flu caused large numbers of deaths, so did measles did 200 years ago, but now it is a childhood minor affliction, for which no vaccine is necessary. It’s all about the Benjamins.

    Jews are the only group that lacks a moral component. Jews are very amoral, think nothing of screwing a “goy” out of money, possessions, or even reputation or life. You see, the jewish talmud elevates the jew above all others, “goyim” being “livestock with souls, created only to serve the jew”.

    This amorality is a critical component in jewish life and is partially responsible for jewish successes. When one does not possess a moral compass that defines and separates “right from wrong” THAT in itself gives the jew greater latitude to “get what he wants” as there are “no limits” on what a jew may do to gain the advantage in just about any situation. The lack of a moral component within jewish life is a major reason for jewish supremacy in civilized societies.

    It’s not “smarts” or “IQ” that gives jews an advantage over gentile whites, but is their rabid insistence on cultural and social cohesiveness, insularity and nepotism (but only for themselves) that gives them an “advantage”.

    This same cultural and social cohesiveness that is prized so highly by jewish interests is denied to gentile whites. Jews, to a man will fight to deny this same cultural and social cohesiveness to gentile whites that they themselves enjoy as it is a major part of the jewish purpose–the destruction of gentile white culture, which IS superior to any jewish cultural or social society. If jews did not possess this power, they would most likely be rag merchants, liquor merchants, or furniture merchants–nothing more.

    As I have previously stated, jewish success is based on cultural and social cohesiveness and insularity–NOT “smarts” or “IQ”. Once enough jews get into a position of power in the work world or education systems, they will hire and promote their own, even bypassing more qualified gentile white candidates.

    Jews have latched on to cultural cohesiveness and nepotism, as it serves their purpose exceedingly well.

    The one reason that makes “jews” so successful is that they formulate and enact laws (civil-rights for some) that deny us whites the right to look after our own self-interest while they flout the laws that are imposed on the rest of us.

    THAT, my friends is another reason for their “success”.

    A good example of jewish flouting of “civil-rights” laws is the jewish community of Kiryas Joel, New York, among others. If you are not jewish, you cannot buy property there, nor can you send your non-jewish children to the (jews-only) “public” schools, despite so-called “civil-rights” laws enacted to prohibit discrimination in housing and education.

    Not only that, but most of the jews who occupy Kiryas Joel and other “jews only” communities also take advantage of “social services” and “welfare” programs out of proportion to their numbers. Almost every jew in these “jews-only” communities is running some kind of “scam” on the American “social welfare system”.

    You see, “multiculturalism and diversity for thee, but not for me” is the jewish mantra and is the primary way that they destroy cultures and civilizations. Their lack of morality figures heavily into their success. Jews think nothing of screwing over a “goy”; it is just “normal business” for them…

    Most White nationalist types secretly acknowledge that Jews are biologically superior to European Gentiles

    @Realist put it well.

    You will for example find that many try to prove that Einstein was a fraud and copied everything from White Gentiles, this is like Blacks claiming how Whites stole all their ideas and didn’t give them credit.

    Not comparable at all. Usually the black claims have very little, if any, merit to them.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relativity_priority_dispute

    The White nationalist claim of Nordic superiority seems a little shady when they also say that a group whose size is 40 times smaller than their own is oppressing them all.

    Not all white nationalists are Nordicists; hard to know how many are. Personally, I think they’re kind of silly, but even Nordicists do not claim Nordics are superior in all ways. Most of them probably wish Nordics were more ethnocentric and intelligent enough to see Jewish lies.

    Jews are particularly scary to White nationalists because of how smart they are, not just in ‘soft’ subjects like humanities where it can be argued that they simply have the gift of the gab and are indeed only good for huckstering, but they also seem to dominate the ‘hard’ sciences.

    Jews are particularly scary to white nationalists because of their role in the ongoing, slow genocide of our peoples. Japanese are also very intelligent, but white nationalists usually view them quite favorably.

    It also seems odd that Jews, despite being a distinct group, were allowed into Western society so easily.

    This is due to Christianity, imo. Some white advocates have theorized that Christianity was a Jewish invention used in ancient times to make it easier to subjugate the goyim.

    the IQ HBD debate is not very useful from a WN point of view

    Agreed, but only because IQ differences are inconsequential to ethnonationalism.

    It’s implications are at minimum, that all immigrants should be IQ tested and the ones who score high should be let in, many of these will be non-White

    I don’t think that necessarily follows. You can point out racial differences in IQ while still not supporting immigration based on IQ.

    It also implies Jews are much smarter than Whites, in fact the difference between White Gentiles and Jews is around the same as the difference between White Gentiles and African-American Blacks.

    I’m sure Jews like to believe that.

    In September 2012, the executive of the Portugees-Israëlietishce Gemeente te Amsterdam asked their rabbinical head, the Haham, Dr Pinchas Toledano to reconsider the cherem after consulting a number of international Spinoza scholars.

    In their appeal to the Haham, they argued that the cherem was “in painful contrast to a key value of the modern world, where we consider ‘freedom of speech’ as a fundamental human right”.

    The academics were divided on overturning the ban. Dr Piet Steenbakkers, of Utrecht University, thought “it would put to rest a vexed issue and… be a homage to an original thinker of whom the Portuguese-Jewish community has reason to be proud.”

    Dutch Sephardi leader Haham Pinchas Toledano says he cannot lift the excommunication order against Baruch Spinoza. Rabbi Toledano – who is former head of London’s Sephardi Beth Din – decided to let the cherem remain.

    “Cherem is the highest ecclesiastical censure in the Jewish community. It is the total exclusion of a person from the Jewish community.

    Read a fascinating article on how the Christian Evangelicals really got going in the U.S. From what I remember (I’ve probably got the link somewhere), there was heavy Jewish influence behind it. I’ll try to find the link. The following article touches on it:

    “…’nine out of ten’ American evangelicals reject end-time prophecies involving Jewish control of the Holy Land. As Daniel G. Hummel documents in his new book, “Covenant Brothers: Evangelicals, Jews, and U.S.-Israeli Relations,” Christian Zionism’s history reveals that the movement is ‘less about apocalyptic theology or evangelism’ than about ‘mutual and covenantal solidarity.’

    Through telling the story of Christian Zionism in intricate, narrative detail and paying attention to the splits and fissures within American Christianity, Hummel dismantles virtually every part of the familiar story. Christian Zionism isn’t age-old; its founders were innovating, largely in response to the Holocaust.

    Christian Zionists do not secretly want to convert Jews; in fact many argue vociferously against missionizing, flirting with the boundaries of Christian orthodoxy in the process. Nor is the movement fundamentally apocalyptic: end-time prophecies motivate some believers, but by no means the majority. Finally, Christian Zionism isn’t even entirely Christian, since it began with interfaith dialogue and was carefully cultivated by the Israeli government.”

    https://forward.com/culture/430251/why-everything-you-think-you-know-about-christian-zionism-is-wrong/

    Like the relations between Jews and Blacks in the U.S. (carefully cultivated, with one side steering the boat), this looks like a repeat. As the article says, “carefully cultivated by the Israeli government”!

    I will try to find the link to that old article. It basically spelled out how the evangelical movement has been hugely fostered by the Jews.

    Of course there is.

    Our Friends have been influencing and subverting Christianity and civilization at every opportunity. Zionist Christianity has a long pedigree. It is the same thing over and over, with different twists.

    Stock Market Capital out of Amsterdam funded Calvin. Calvin’s teachings were taken up by the classes engaged in trade, industry and merchants. He attacked Luther and did away with the priesthood and HIERARCHY. (I am going to continue the theme that any civilization must have a hierarchy that works for said civilization – not an in-group of predators.)

    Calvin preached a doctrine of chosen people – the elect, chosen by: Gods gratuitous mercy totally irrespective of human merit, the remainder consigned to eternal damnation.

    (Sounds pretty Jewey to me…Calvin was a Judaizer.)

    In denying the efficacy of merit, and of human will, in leaving others on the side as useless, all the doctrine and tradition of of holy poverty, Calvin opened the door to the domination of the human mind by money.

    St Thomas Aquinas “that if men abandoned the idea of God as the supreme good, they will replace him with the implicit idea that material wealth is the supreme good.”

    In the mid 1600’s, the Jews tried to get themselves re-admited to England. Again, this was stock market capital funding the movement. Rabbi Menasseh Ben Israel (who funded the printing of Bibles, and emphasized old testament Jews as being god’s elect), tried to Bribe English Parliamentarians. The 1649 petition to the English Council was to revoke the banishment, and 500,000 pounds of gold was offered. Other bribes included to turn St. Pauls Cathedral into a Synagogue.

    The next line of attack was that Jews should be re-admitted to England to allow “the coming of the Messiah.”

    Then the next play was to see if Oliver Cromwell was the Messiah, using Sephardic Jews led by Rabbi Ben Ayabel.

    And so it goes… the parasite wanted to be let back into England, to then take rents and usury – the tribes main source of sustenance. The original expulsion by King Edward in 1290 was because Jews had been putting “house to house” using usury techniques, and abusing the English population.

    It is not due to “the subjugation of the colored races”, but due to an advanced economy which allows for the emergence of a leissure class, that progress in civilization is made, but that is true for all races. Plus there should of course be some talent present. Ancient Greece and Rome had not “subjugated the coloured races”, but they had a vast slave class. Renaissance Italy had neither a slave class, nor “subjugated the coloured races”. Leissure plus talent is the explanation, not slavery.

    In your mind the use of subjugated races allowed white people the time to invent and build things? Then your mind is pretty damned empty. So white people never toiled in their own fields?

    In the South before the Civil war less than 5% of white people owned slaves. And in the North it was 1%. It is absolutely ludicrous to think that the vast majority of white people didn’t till their own farms. My grandfather was a farmer and he had no help from other races. Three of my uncles are farmers and the same goes for them. Maybe you ought to get out of your urban cocoon and see what happens in rural America. Trump won 84.3% of the counties in 2016. Most of those were rural. If they were filled with subjugated people, I seriously doubt Trump would have won that many counties. And actually, being a farmer takes some serious smarts in applied science.

    And granted that the Jews invented the atomic bomb, but it wasn’t them that actually built them. If they couldn’t lay brick, they probably couldn’t figure out how to put a bomb together either. There is a huge difference between theoretical science and applied science. Jews don’t strike me as having proven they have much aptitude for applied science. The Jewish ghettos of early 20th Century Europe would seem to be good evidence of that.

    Thomas Edison once said genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Jews don’t seem to break much of a sweat when it comes to making things that actually make progress.

    Yes, another anon cites Ernst Chain for penicillin. He fled from Germany in 1933 and headed to Britain, ending up at Oxford. You know, one of those Jewish-built universities. A benevolent British scientist helped him get a job.

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

    Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1929, but it was Florey and Chain who received the Nobel Prize along with Fleming in 1945. One fellow got left out, Norman Heatley:

    “Heatley was part of Florey’s team. Florey had set out to create the first antibiotics. Heatley’s task was to produce enough penicillin for the group to study. Not an easy job! Penicillin is terribly unstable and hard to make.

    But Heatley had just the right abilities. He knew how to improvise. He knew how to use his hands. He wasn’t just a scientist. He had the inventive sense of an engineer. First he created means for growing penicillin and measuring its output. Then he figured out how to reuse the special fungus it grows in.

    But that wasn’t enough. We have to separate penicillin from the fungus. That’d stymied everyone for 10 years. Heatley invented a new extraction process to get the penicillin without destroying it. Finally, he used hospital bedpans as mass-production growth chambers.”

    https://www.uh.edu/engines/epi601.htm

    Oxford finally gave Heatley an honorary doctorate in 1990 (lucky he was still alive 45 years later), something which they’d never done before in their 800-year history.

  127. To go to one of the larger supermarket I have to pass by several blocks of a Hasidic neighborhood where one can observe the community in full action, be it children going to or coming from the local cheder or yeshiva (boys and girls separately of course, unlike the gaggles of coed that come out boisterously from a nearby public high school), be it pairs of women with strollers shopping or men of all ages going about their business.

    On my way there today, I saw a Hasid dressed to the hilt in his hallmark trouser (funny), hat (funnier) and haircut (funniest) which in itself is nothing remarkable but for the color of his eyes and hair and I guessed the portly man to be in his late twenties. Now I have seen plenty of truly blonde haired and blue eyed creatures among the community but this one had a most remarkable nose: it was small and well proportioned but it was turned up at the end.

    And I had just finished reading this article before heading to the market and it amused me to remember the line by the author stating something about Arabs and Jews being racially and physically from being the same pool upon seeing that man, who must have had ancestors nearer the arctic than nearer the equator.

    What did that man have in common with the large nosed Bedouin on a camel back sporting a scimitar? Nothing! Nada! Zilch! Nyet! Doodley sqat! Not a damed thing!

    Of course, he wasn’t searching for a homeland … he had already found his in his own tightknit community of Brooklyn but perhaps he was thinking about Golda and Tevye in the Pale of Settlement where his forebears are buried and not some godforsaken desert!

If Alexander the great’s men had met the Chinese, of that time, they would have been toast (the Greeks that is). In that period, in China, battles were the size of first and second world war battles.

    Even the Catholic Church was poisoned by jewish and protestant influences with the creation of the Vatican II Ecumenical Council.

    Both jews and (judified) protestants were given a say in to the direction that this Ecumenical Council would take. Decisions were made by both jews and (judified} protestants contrary to Catholic doctrine and practices.

    The greatest error of the Council was the absolution of the jews of responsibility for the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ.

    To this day, the jewish talmud reinforces the visceral, rabid hatred that jews have for Jesus Christ and his mother Mary. How could those Catholic leaders allow jews to infect and poison the Catholic Church in this way?

    Even Islam has a much greater respect for Jesus Christ and Mary, regarding Jesus Christ as a great prophet while specifically mentioning and giving Mary a place of high honor in the Q’uran.

    Another major error was the abolition of the use of Latin in the Mass, even prohibiting the celebration of the Latin Mass without ecclesiastical “permission” (which, for the longest time was rarely given).

    It took “pushback” by a brave Bishop Lefebre and his “Society of St. Pius X” to restore the celebration of the Latin Mass as well as restoring traditional Catholic practices within the Church.

    Hundreds of Jewish owned businesses are active in China, transferring tech know-how to Chinese companies, providing important jobs and training to Chinese employees, and eventually being squeezed by arbitrary increases in land, water, and electricity rates or exclusion from the Chinese market in favor of local companies. Banking and finance is the key for Jews, and although Trump is making it the centerpiece of his future steps in negotiations with the Chinese, there will never be true access. The Chinese are too smart for that. They will make a deal with Trump, give the big finance Jews a woody for the big market in financial services, and then find an endless wall of problems with implementation, followed by the Chinese explaining “No, that’s not what the agreement said.”. Rinse and repeat, endless waffling, endless lawsuits, endless WTO action, followed by no access. The Chinese weren’t born yesterday as a civilization.

    This was the common situation in the nineteen fifties.
    These childhood diseases reared their heads in a school, everyone got it, the afflicted kids got to stay home from school for a week, we in our family got to have ginger ale (otherwise no soft drinks were allowed in our house).

    Why the drive to eradicate these childhood diseases, well known to fortify the immune system against not only that specific disease, but others as well. By providing a workout.

    When I was in my twenties, in Germany, I knew a guy who was very upset because he had just contracted mumps. In men post-puberty, mumps can have very serious consequences for fertility. It would have been much better for this guy to have caught mumps as a child. I have no idea why he did not, since I don’t know anything about patterns of childhood diseases in Germany in the forties and fifties. Perhaps mumps were more common in North America?

    “Communist political Messianism stemmed from the French Revolution, and stressed the similarities between Jacobinism and Stalinism.”

    Anyone with even a passing knowledge of the events of 1789 and 1917 can see the similarities.

    Quite true.

    Just one of the ‘details of history’ that the pwb would rather people not pay too much attention to, and is therefore not emphasized

    It is in the same manner that they’d rather people not notice that the first flag of the United States (ie the ‘Grand Union’ flag) was identical to the multi-national corporation British East India Company flag, and that Anglo-Saxon ‘Founding Fathers’ of the US, such as Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, apparently Benjamin Franklin as well, people that were amongst the heaviest hitters for the 1776 America Capitalist revolution and right up there in importance with George Washington, were also heavily involved in the creation of the 1789 Communist French revolution as well.

    Historically, behind these men, and behind Capitalism and Communism since their respective inceptions in 1776 and 1789, one can only suspect that one will find London.

    Yes, indeed, it was the French Revolution which introduced to the world the ‘political commisar’, ‘counter-revolution’, ‘Whites’, the ‘Commune’, ‘red republicanism’, and the ‘great terror’, all of which Soviet Communism evolved from.

    It helps to explain why even now Paris has a city square named ‘Stalingrad’.

    Funny. Ridicule with humor. The Jews are smart but this goes beyond intelligence and is not about “cleverness”. The Jews (not all of them) are DECEPTIVE. The name of the patriarch Jacob means deceiver or trickster. His whole life he deceived and was in turn himself tricked. You are obviously a Jew and yet you refuse to acknowledge these things. No matter – the nation like their forefather Jacob will be wrestled to halt and crippled.

    This was an excellent article because it goes to the heart of the deception. I constantly warn about it. They have presented a binary choice:

    Alas, the 20th century showed that, very tragically, the most dynamic young Jews of the world were attracted to two opposite extremes: either exclusive race-based Zionist nationalism or all-embracing abstract Communist internationalism. Both extremes rely on violence. Both pretend to have a strong popular mandate. It does not help that lately Zionism got a tremendous boost from the American Neocons trying to turn it into Zionist globalism.

    It is called the Hegelian Dialectic. They are both “bad guys” and “bad choices” and sensible people will reject both. We will not be fooled again (into killing each other) enough of the lies and propaganda. There are no good guys people need to WAKE UP.

The Chinese Communist Party is the best placed to root out their own corruption, something that they have become more and more effective at in recent years, although they would be the first to admit that it’s still a problem, perhaps THE biggest problem.

The best characteristic of the great Chinese firewall is its total ban on pornography. It’s seen as protection for young minds and young people, not oppression. I agree.

    “Beijing will become the worlds leading whore house.”

    Believe me, there is no shortage of prostitution in China. The Chinese are a practical people, and they realize that prostitution is a facilitator of business.

    China was well behind the west in technology. I agree. It is not important how many years they were behind, just as it is not important where the technology originated or who invented it. The fact is that in today’s world, technology cannot be protected and kept away from certain competitors the way it once was.

    As for the Stone Age, you should examine the situation in the year that Adam Smith wrote The Wealth of Nations. The Chinese had distribution systems in their cities that were far more advanced than anything in Europe or the new world. The range of products available to Chinese city dwellers far exceeded that in the west. China needs to be studied and understood as a civilizational society that went through dynastic changes, some of which resulted in progress, some of which resulted in the regression.

    Lost comments: The Times pinned a positive comment about Stephens’ op-ed at the top of its comment section, but most “Reader Picks” comments were critical, notes Business Insider. The Times then shut down the entire comment section the day the piece was posted.”

    Take notice people how this has been spun…..the complaints publicly published all claimed it was anti semitic because it said Ashkenazim Jews , instead of ALL Jews were were geniuses and that it was race eugenics like the Nazis employed against the Jews.
    What was not condemned was the anti gentileism and Jewish supreme-ism of the article as in giving Jews a…”advantage over their gentile peers in thinking better”.

  163. Dear Mr. Krasnov,

    You write: “forced to make a fateful decision: Communism or Zionism. I believe the majority of Jews would prefer never to have to make such a decision between these two diametrically opposed extremist and violent positions.”

    I wonder, if these choices are “diametrically opposed”, how did both became so extremist and violent? I mean, what unifies them? Brother Nathaniel makes no real distinction between the Talmud, Zionism or communism. For some reason, when in Jewish hands, these belief systems have a record of causing great harm to others but leave the perpetrators with little remorse. Nathaniel, by converting to Christianity, demonstrates it is cultural, and indeed spiritual, but thus a conscious choice.

    In any case, towards the end of your essay you make this explosive comment:

    “However, it soon became clear that the US foreign policy was high-jacked by the Neocons (several of whom were former Trotskyists)[38] whose goal is world domination for which Israel’s supremacy in the Middle East is the main linchpin.”

    You seem to be telling readers that Jewish communists readily morph into Zionists. You also help substantiate how in modern times the alleged main purpose of The Plantation Owner’s Handbook* is still in motion. Coming from an eminent scholar, that is dreadful news.

    Your most redeeming point is about ending humanity’s war on nature. As you put it: “the need to replace Professor Huntington’s ‘Clash of Civilizations’ with a Saving the Planet paradigm.” Alas, I do not think answering any Jewish question will automatically deliver us from that meta-dilemma. But we should never forget, we are in this together. So thank you for that reminder.

    Finally, if Jewish “genius” is true at all, it almost certainly stems from centuries of eugenics. This raises the possibility of some inherited “bad attitude”, mental diseases or, dare I say, malevolence. As you yourself point out, high IQ is not synonymous with goodness.

    Or, to tone it down some and end with a little ha ha, I suggest some of the more ugly behavioral patterns in Jews might stem from, a) infection, like how mice harboring toxoplasmosis run towards the smell of cat urine, or b) an overactive left brain leading to a high level of narcissism.

    p.s. Of course the short answer is unscrupulous nepotism, or ethnic networking, but after reading half a dozen books on “antisemitism”, the best answer I located to explain the asymmetry in Jewish success was from Bernard Lazare:

    “Some Jews are in the habit of ascribing their economic supremacy to their intellectual superiority. This boast of superiority is not altogether untrue, or, at least, it requires an explanation. In the present bourgeoisie society which is founded upon the exploitation of capital and upon exploitation of capital, where the power of wealth is supreme, where stock jobbing and speculation are all powerful, the Jew is certainly better equipped for success…
    “In the midst of a disunited middle class, whose members are engaged in a perpetual struggle against one another, the Jews stand united as one. This is the secret of their success. Their solidarity is all the stronger in that it goes so far back. Its very existence is denied and yet it is undeniable.”

  164. I am always intrigued by the class of commenters attracted to various websites, whether ‘alternative information’ sites like this one, or the major newspapers that permit reader comments on articles. Some sites attract primarily well-thought-out comments from intelligent readers while others seem to attract primarily bigoted flakes who need a life.

    I don’t know what sins Ron Unz has committed in his prior lives, but if the class of half the commenters here are because of Karma, those crimes must have been doozies. With the exception of the Wall Street Journal and the Economist, I doubt we could find such a collection of rubbish and uniformed bigotry anywhere, all in one place. And, like money, the bad drives out the good.

    142.Thomasina (142.) says: “China was back in the Stone Age not that long ago, before the West paid them a visit.”

    No. China was in the stone age BECAUSE the West paid them a visit. China’s development (and not only China’s) was derailed entirely by Western imperialism and Jewish opium.

    Ricardo Duchesne (119.) says: “Chinese had zero modern science before Europeans taught it to them.”

    Joseph Needham documented thousands of years of Chinese science and invention, in a series of 26 books, proven with texts and drawings from ancient books. And you deny this based on what? How dare you publish such bigoted and uninformed rubbish? How dare you?

    In support of my position:

    “Ricardo Duchesne is a Puerto Rico-born French Canadian pseudo-intellectual white supremacist known for his “academic” works extolling the “uniqueness” of western civilisation and his maligning of non-western civilisations despite having absolutely no academic qualifications whatsoever.”

    “Ricardo Duchesne, who teaches at UNB’s Saint John campus, has “racist positions on multiculturalism and immigration”, says the letter, which was signed by 35 of Prof. Duchesne’s colleagues.”

    “He also penned anti-immigrant articles and invested much of his time engaging in edit wars on Wikipedia and forum flame wars. Making no effort to hide his racist views in public . . .”

    “Duchesne maintains a prolific activity on Wikipedia and history related forums. Known for being easily identified and being smacked down by amateurs in debates due to him making elementary mistakes given his lack of academic qualifications. His primary activity is attacking non-western, non-white civilizations as [being] militarily weak, less advanced, and [more] primitive than the west.”

  165. For this website’s undiseased readers, let me tell you something you don’t know (about Chinese invention).

    Much of China’s total sum of knowledge and history of invention is lost to the world forever. A large part of the recorded knowledge of China’s history was destroyed in one of the greatest acts of cultural genocide in the history of the world – the looting and burning of China’s Summer Palace, the Yuanmingyuan, which contained more than ten million of the finest and most valuable historical treasures and scholarly works from 5,000 years of Chinese history. What could not be looted was destroyed, and the entire massive palace burned to the ground. This wanton theft and utter destruction of one of the world’s greatest collections of historical knowledge was engineered by the Rothschilds and Sassoons in retaliation for Chinese resistance to their opium. (1) (2)

    The destruction of the Yuanmingyuan was done for the same reason that the Allies bombed Dresden to rubble during the Second World War. Dresden had no military value but it was the spiritual and cultural heart of Germany, its destruction meant “to open a wound in the German soul that would never heal”. For precisely the same reason, the American ‘deep state’ was savagely determined to drop the first atomic bomb on Kyoto, also the heart and soul of Japanese culture. Kyoto was protected by Providence, with heavy overcasts of clouds that preventing the bombers from locating it with sufficient accuracy, forcing them to their alternates of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    But in terms of the destruction of a literary recording of culture and invention, there was perhaps an even greater crime against the history of Chinese knowledge – the destruction of the library and the Yongle Dadian at the Hanlin Academy. (3) That encyclopedia of 22,000 volumes written by more than 2,000 scholars over many years, contained much of the total of 5,000 years of Chinese knowledge, invention and thought. On the orders of Rothschild and Sassoon, the British military carried all those books outdoors, poured fuel on them, and burnt the entire collection to ashes. Only God knows what was lost in this tragic destruction, ordered by the same drug dealers as punishment for refusing opium, meant to break China’s will by striking at the very heart of the nation’s culture in the wanton destruction of something of such inestimable value as to leave an open wound that would never heal. Only about 150 volumes survived the incineration, 40 those residing today in the US Library of Congress, which has no intention of returning them to China.

    Popper didn’t identify as a Jew and Bergson only did so, conspicuously, at the end of his life in the first years of the occupation – to show solidarity.

    Popper was in my humble opinion a great philosopher. He is of course not responsible for Soros claiming to be a disciple. Bryan Magee, who had a good overview of the field, wrote this about him:”

    .. because he spent so much of his time attacking and severely damaging the ideas of people he disagreed with he was never popular.

    The greatest European Gentile philosopher was Adolf Hitler, and even then the European Gentiles didn’t deserve his gift, they preferred highly propagandised philosophers like Plato and Aristotle, whom I don’t find very impressive at all. The European gentile obsession with trivialities like architecture and paintings is quite telling, like a simple minded Negro, the European Gentile is easily impressed by decadence, albeit slightly more sophisticated decadence. The Jewish race is concerned with Natural Law, the law of Mother Nature.

    Once again to quote Adolf Eichmann:

    We would have fulfilled our duty to our blood and our people and to the freedom of the peoples, if we had exterminated the most cunning intellect of all the human intellects alive today. For that is what I said to Streicher, what I have always preached: we are fighting an enemy who, through many many thousands of years of schooling, is intellectually superior to us. Was it yesterday or the day before, or a year ago, I don’t know, I heard or read: even before the Romans had their state, before Rome had even been founded, the Jews there were able to write. This is an understatement. They should have said, aeons before the Romans erected their state, aeons before the very founding of Rome itself, they were able to write. Look at the tablets of the Ten Commandments. Look at a race that today has recourse to, may I just say, six thousand years of written history, a race that has been making laws for let us say five thousand years or six thousand years – and I am not wrong, I believe, when I estimate a seventh millennium. The fact that the Christian church today makes use of this lawmaking is very depressing for me. But it tells me that this must be a race of the first order of magnitude, since lawmakers have always been great. And because of these realizations I fought against this enemy.

    Yes. Perhaps because the media ignored this story, surprising few seem aware that all of Iraq’s antiquities and historical relics were looted. Some photos were posted attesting to the claim that all – all – of Iraq’s museums were literally empty, and that a great many private homes were looted at gunpoint of treasured artifacts as well.

    Further to my above comment, several years ago someone in a high position in the museum world stated that probably a good 80% of everything in major US museums was there illegally, usually knowingly purchased from the thieves.

    I believe the museums in the UK are not much better. I don’t know about France.

    As one example, also several years ago, two Americans stole the world’s largest aquamarine from Brazil, the original stone weighing many kilograms and of such exceptional purity and clarity that it was deemed almost invaluable, beyond price. It was discovered in |Brazil in 1980 and on display in a museum. It was stolen and delivered to a US military base from where it was flown to Germany for cutting, then returned to the US.

    The website of the Smithsonian says, “The Dom Pedro Aquamarine will take pride of place at the National Museum of Natural History, part of the Smithsonian Institution. The quality of the original crystal and its size, exquisite blue-green color and distinctive cut make it an exceptionally rare gem.”

    There is no longer any mention anywhere of the method by which the Smithsonian acquired the stone, but in fact at the time, the Smithsonian bragged about the clever cloak-and-dagger skullduggery that got the stone out of Brazil. The Brazilian government of course wants the stone returned, but their pleas fall on deaf ears.

    It’s all such a crime, but nothing to be done when predators have all the power.

    But all we ever hear about is how the Nazis in Germany looted art treasures. I don’t know if they did or didn’t, but they surely weren’t the first, nor the biggest, such thieves.

    You make a good point here, but as we saw in the old Soviet Union, and as many of us have known for decades, the Jews control our shabbos goy leaders with threats of blackmail, compromise them with money, or cater to the shabbos goy white traitor trash’s vice of choice whether it be prostitutes, pedophilia, drugs, etc. “Anti-Semitism” was punishable by death in the old Soviet Union and it looks like “our” shabbos goy leaders intend to eventually do the same thing in the so-called, “home of the brave and land of the free.” And then you have the endless propaganda about the holohoax and the paid off whores who claim to be Christians but who do the bidding of the anti-Christ, preachers like John Hagee who tell his gullible congregation that basically there are two sets of people who will go to Heaven, the Jews and those Gentiles who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I don’t know the Bible very well but even with the little that I do know, God broke his old covenant with the Jews and the new “chosen” are those who accept Jesus Christ as the Son Of God, whether they be Jew or Gentile. Whites are more intelligent than the Jew, but they are sick from being subjected to around the clock lies, propaganda and anti-White racism. While the Jew may be even sicker in his own way, and suffers from extreme paranoia, sociopathic behavior, narcissism that is so beyond the pale it is psychopathic. Whites are a trusting lot for the most part and like all inherently good and altruistic people they make the mistake that everyone thinks and acts like them, that everyone is inherently good and decent. Well, the Jew and other nonwhites will often exploit these traits through guile and deception, we definitely see how the Jew has brainwashed so many Whites to feel guilty because of perceived past injustices against the Jew and or other other nonwhites. Meanwhile the Arab feels no guilt for enslaving Black and White alike, even castrating the negro male slaves and probably raping millions of White females. The Jew feels no guilt for his SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE AFRICAN SLAVE TRADE,AND THE JEW CERTAINLY FEELS NO GUILT FOR THE DEATH OF MILLIONS OF UKRAINIANS AND ENSLAVEMENT OF THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE IN HELLISH GULAGS. I wouldn’t say that Whites are less intelligent, in fact I would say they have PROVEN to be the most intelligent race by far, HOWEVER, they are too good for their own good, and are very easily taken because of their innocence and gullibility and their obedience to conform to societal laws put in place.

    Eichmann didn’t know history. How old one estimates Jewish civilization to be depends on what one takes seriously from the Old Testament, much of which is legend anyway. If we reckon the undivided kingdom of David and Solomon as the beginning of Jewish civilization (ca. 1000 BC), then Jewish civilization is 3000 years old. That is not much older than the founding of Rome (753 BC), and far younger than the Minoan civilization of Crete (flourished 2700 – 1450 BC). Compared to the high civilizations of the Middle East, Jewish civilization was also rather young. Egyptian civilization began in 3000 BC, Mesopotamian civilization in 3100 BC, and those civilizations were both literate. Eichmann’s fascination with the age of Jewish civilization was based on ignorance.

    My comment was bigoted? Really? Or is it that you feel you have lost face?

    Kissinger and Nixon went to China and met with the Chinese elite. Western and Chinese elite decided to collaborate, knowing they would become filthy rich by the deal. Soon after jobs started leaving the West for China, followed by western science and technology. In order to do business in China, as I understand it, the western multinational corporations had to take on a Chinese partner and share their technology. Fair enough; part of the bargain to get in the door. No environmental controls and very low wages was the draw.

    China started to modernize, built huge cities, universities, etc. China has greatly benefited from western technology. Without it, had they had to invent everything all on their own, it would have taken China a very, very long time.

    Of course China has had great periods in the past. I wasn’t talking about their distant past. I was talking about their recent past, just before the West knocked on their door.

    Many people take great offence when you point out that China was greatly assisted in her march towards modernizing. It’s like they lose face even contemplating that they didn’t do it all on their own.

    The Chinese invented processes thousands of years ago that have never again been duplicated nor completely understood. For example, the process of making ancient Chinese bronzes.

    Westerners define technology narrowly and narcissistically according to their own types of accomplishments. Western civilization never figured out how to make beautiful ceramics (all processes copied from Chinese); how to produce silk from the cocoons of silk worms, cultivated on mulberry leaves (copied from the Chinese); invention of paper (copied from the C); invention of gunpowder; invention of functioning administration and bureaucracy needed to manage a large empire; invention of the idea of a civil service based on meritocracy; development of complicated irrigation systems needed to produce enough food to feed dense populations; etc. etc. etc.

    The American/Western inability to respect another culture, to acknowledge the accomplishments of societies and civilizations with very different belief systems and aims, is a consistent marker of the most adolescent features of the Western mind.

    China was not “on the cusp of its industrial revolution” at any time in its history, pretty much ceased to innovate after the Sung Dynasty. Chinese had zero modern science before Europeans taught it to them. Check my book, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization.

    Well, I’ll admit I haven’t your WN book, but I have read quite a lot about China, and I’m rather skeptical of your analysis…

    Back a century ago during America’s “Racialist Era,” our academics were very un-PC and pretty candid about such things, and yet they freely admitted that China had been responsible for the 3 or 4 most important human inventions of the last 1000 years or so. You might want to take a look at a couple of my own related articles from the last few years:

    Actually, as the Jew philosopher Hannah Arendt argued in “Eichmann in Jerusalem”, Eichmann was a zionist and would likely overestimate Jewish civilization.

    I am not going to get into how beautiful Chinese ceramics were, or how great was their produce of silk from the cocoons of silk worms, but will say that we have every reason to question any notion that the Chinese developed modern gunpowder technology and a proper printing press, by first observing that the question that calls for answers is why China did not have a Scientific Revolution. I think James McClellan and Harold Dorn’s Science and Technology in World History(1999) offers a number of reasonable arguments in response to this question.

    Drawing on such important works as Derk Bodde’s Chinese Thought, Society, and Science: The Intellectual and Social Background of Science and Technology in Pre-Modern China(1991), Toby Huff’s Rise of Early Modern Science, Islam, China, and the West (1993), and G. E.R. Lloyd’s Adversaries and Authorities: Investigations into Ancient Greek and Chinese Science(1996),

    ———– McClellan and Dorn make the following points. First, in Chinese society “no separate occupation or distinct profession of science existed.” While there were numerous schools, none offered instruction in the sciences and, unlike European universities, they lacked legal autonomy over educational matters. Their whole focus “was careerist and directed to preparing students to take the state civil service exams.”

    Second, there were many sciences but these were practical and there was no “notion of pure science pursued for its own sake.” Chinese mathematicians “never developed a formal geometry, logical proofs, or deductive mathematical systems such as those found in Euclid.”

    The Chinese style of thinking was correlative or associative, and strove to find analogies and relations between diverse things, rather than looking at nature as a separate entity working according to universal laws that could be understood in terms of cause-effect relations, self-evident definitions, and logical inferences.

    Needham was aware that the Chinese scientific principles of recurring cycles, the Yin and the Yang, and the Five Elements were incommensurable with the Greek legacy of natural laws, and the closely related science of Renaissance Europe. In the Christian tradition there was a concept of natural law in the sense that a supreme God had given laws that nature obeys. In Europe, by the seventeenth century, “two distinct conceptions of natural law [had] come to be differentiated: law as valid for all human beings and laws obeyed by everything in nature that is not human.”

    When Needham examined Chinese philosophies, none of them contained concepts that came close to this idea of laws of nature, without which there can be no science, and not modern technology.

    This may explain why Needham felt comfortable concluding that **“Western science…developed on the whole without the benefit of either Indian or Chinese contributions.”**

    In my view the growth exhibited by China in the modern era was based on the extension of the same epistemic bases of technology already present in the Sung era (A.D. 960–1279).

    How can one compare Chinese firecrackers with the military revolution(s) Europe experienced continuously from the middle ages on right into gunpowder, cannon manufacture, and large oceangoing ship to conquer the world? Actually, Europeans were responsible for most innovations in warfare starting with ancient Greeks, the Hoplite infantry revolution, upgraded by the Macedonian phalanx and Roman legions, which allowed them to conquer the East. The Roman Empire was created in the most contested area of the world, the Mediterranean, Europeans were never conquered by anyone, whereas the Chinese were many times.

    China’s never had a printing revolution in the way that Eisenstein explains it, https://www.amazon.ca/Printing-Press-Agent-Change/dp/0521299551

    In a long review I refuted Pomeranz’s The Great Divergence, https://www.researchgate.net/publication/247758850_On_the_Rise_of_the_West_Researching_Kenneth_Pomeranz’s_Great_Divergence

    Pomeranz’s book was a good effort but deeply flawed in pretending that as late as 1750 Europe/Asia, England/China were following the same Malthusian path, and in his unwillingness to acknowledge that China was no less an imperial power that benefited from extraction of resources from newly conquered lands (with Manchuria as their America) no less than England, and certainly more than most European nations – Germany, Switzerland, Nordic countries – that went on to industrialize. China even benefited from America’s in having a positive balance of trade with Europe, with American silver finding its way into Chinese coffers; not to mention that Europeans gave them the potato and other American goodies. Pomeranz commits major error in delinking industrial revolution from rise of Galilean-Newtonian science, which cannot be done in the case of steam technology, and makes zero sense in the Second Industrial Revolution — to mention a few flaws.

    But the biggest weakness of current participants in this debate is their assumption that Great Divergence was about Industrial Revolution. The West has been in a state of divergence since ancient times, far more creative in all human endeavors, https://escholarship.org/uc/item/82g096mc

    Even Murray underestimates Western accomplishments by focusing only on intellectual pursuits, https://fortnightlyreview.co.uk/2012/06/explore-duchesne/

    We can’t separate this debate from politics. The entire university establishment in the West has been forcing through a multicultural world history to meet immigration-diversity program, and it does not matter if Pomeranz is refuted, he will still be promoted to president of AHA, etc, and so will every reasonably good proponent of this anti-Western ideology. The idea that Whites achieved far more than all the civilizations combined terrifies the academic establishment more so, I would say, than any other dissenting argument, more than JQ. I payed a big price for advocating this idea, a hysterical academic mobbing, which forced me into early retirement.

    I will take a closer look at the essays you sent, but will say for now that they are about China’s recent rise. It is well known that past Europeans (in the 1700s) recognized the advances of China, but the more they studied this civilization the more they realized it was quite backward intellectually. As I argue in a recent article on the Axial Age, only Europe progressed intellectually beyond this age, whereas this was the peak of intellectual development in other axial civilizations, https://www.researchgate.net/publication/337793013_THE_EUROPEAN_IDEA_OF_PROGRESS_SUPERSEDES_THE_AXIAL_AGE_AN_EXTENDED_ANALYSIS_OF_ROBERT_N_BELLAH’S_RELIGION_IN_HUMAN_EVOLUTION_FROM_THE_PALEOLITHIC_TO_THE_AXIAL_AGE

    The psychology of Whites is fundamentally different; the Chinese mind has always been embedded to its surrounding, devoid of an awareness of the mind as the agent of knowledge, of the difference between the I and the not-I. I know no one will read these essays, but here they are:

    https://www.counter-currents.com/2019/02/the-transcendental-mind-of-europeans-stands-above-the-embedded-mind-of-asians/

    @Lot

    Well, regarding Japan consider that their middle ages were on par with ours, then they had 250 years of civil war in the Sengôku-Jidai period which covers our crucial time of the Renaissance and right after it more than two centuries of total isolation (and stagnant peace) under the Tokugawa Shogunate which made industrialization all but impossible.

    Certainly the European mindset plaid a key role, beginning from the influence of Christianity which regarded truth as its highest virtue and its linear time frame leaning towards progress/Fort-Schritt and maybe the protestant work ethic, combined with the classical mindset which put man at the center of its world view and considered the material world as something to be molded for him, his interests and needs – “the better world”. Thus, personally I don’t know a Japanese equivalent of a universal genius like Leonardo da Vinci, in which these elements came together.

    However, when it comes to modernity, through which Japan went with all afterburners blasting and which contributed highly to its militaristic imperial expansionism, their performance in terms of patents and scientific output is per capita at about the same level as my country, Germany, which regularly gets highest grades in innovation. And if Japan had the population of China, it could have easily overtaken the USA as world’s largest economy by now, which itself has a planetary advantage in terms of geo-strategic position and natural resources.

    And considering the revolutionary paradigm shift since the quantum revolution, which mainstream biology has so far all but ignored, and from Aristotle to Plato, the Asian immanent world view seems more in harmony with objective reality. At least many quantum physicists believe so. Like Anton Zeilinger. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U43pXuGhEg8 Also the European “faustian spirit” which puts a border between itself, the Ego, and the objective world, may be useful for progress, but the self-sacrificing and self-destructive quest for objective truth at all costs, could also be seen as highly harmful when we look at both nuclear weapons and a universal will to power which has replaced universal truth and thus fueled our global quest for world control. Take the case of Edward Teller for example who built the hydrogen bomb to be sure about his theories. At least that was his official reasoning.
    What’s more: this fundamental separation between the self and the world is actually Abrahamic in origin and completely missing in European native religions and not all dominating in the classical world. It’s an enormous factor for the alienation in our post-metaphysical, mechanistic world order – the isolated I in a dead and meaningless world – which is actually outdated, if we consider the ever creative and spontaneous cosmology of quantum physics.

    I have only the deepest respect for and long experience with the East Asian cultures of Japan and China and there is also tremendous influence between our cultures from Schopenhauer to Karlfried Graf Dürckheim (who worked for Joachim von Ribbentrop I may add). How alive they are today in Marxist China and how much it now suffers from the same (historical) materialism is of course another question.
    Concerning the age of discovery Professor Gunnar Heinsohn has made a good case for his thesis that the European population explosion was fueled by the ban on abortion by the catholic church up to the execution of midwives. As a reaction to the culling of Europe, which had lost a third of its people to the Black Death. And thus Europe could and had to export its surplus population, especially the young sons who could not find vacant jobs, to New Worlds. A factor which also plays a significant role in deeply conservative Christian and Islamic Africa. If not for the massive disparity between the populations in terms of IQ, technology and economy, we would truly live in an age of African colonialism and not just the migration period Europe currently has to endure. And naturally nations with ocean access like Portugal, Spain and the UK would seek further shores while more land-locked nations like mine would have to look inward, to Eastern Europe and Russia with only limited colonies overseas. And then WW 1 happened.

    What cannot be overstated is the tragic loss for all of humanity when Jerusalem had replaced German idealism as the world’s dominant spiritual and intellectual influence since at least WW 2. Most people don’t even have a sense for this planetary tragedy…

    The Qing Dynasty was not created by the Han people, it is, as I recall, the second longest lasting dynasty and the final one in China, lasting from 1644 to 1912.

    You are right that “numerous” is an inflated word; still, the nomads played a central role in Chinese history in multiple ways, not just in the making of great wall, also in trade and transmission of ideas starting with Indo-Europeans along the Silk Road. The Chinese avoided war as much as possible with the nomads; during the Han era, the Xiongnu posed a huge threat forcing the Chinese to pay them tribute.

I especially appreciate your stress on the relevance of Solzhenitsyn’s 2001 book “Two Hundred Years Together” for the politics of today: <>

    Of course, it was an insanely brutal farce even of the so called Russian revolution of 1917. The farcical nature of the Marxist “world revolution” in a wrong place at a wrong time only augmented its tragedy–and concealed it from foreign eyes. That’s why Solzhenitsyn’s book should be read and discussed, if we are to avert another re-enactment of the same tragedy elsewhere, even in the USA. It’s purpose is not to put all blame on the radical militant Jews. Solzhenitsyn actually let them speak in the book and challenged for a dialog thereafter. He did not try to exonerate from the blame ethnic Russians or any of the minorities (Latvians, Ukrainians, Tatars, etc) that participated in the free for-all rampage of the Civil War that took more lives than World War One. In that four-year rampage more Jews lost their lives than in all the pogroms in the previous hundred of years. As to ethnic Russians, Solzhenitsyn had a message for then too, “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations“, e.g.

    Perhaps, I am too hopeful, but I am looking forward to building a Jews & Gentiles alliance, “The International of Good Men” (and Women, we would now add) of which the Old Jew Gedali, one of Isaak Babel’s heroes, was dreaming.

    First, I like your appellation, Digital Samizdat. You are right: it could originate only in a totalitarian state, the USSR. It meant self-publishing in Russian. Lenin and his Bolsheviks had no problem to have their revolutionary ideas, including MARXISM, expressed as they published and distributed their propaganda in printing books and newspapers, often financed from abroad. Soviet dissidents had no other way to express themselves except by hand-writing or typing. If you were lucky, the typewriter could make four carbon copies. Then you passed your product surreptitiously among the people you trusted. Such was the situation until about the advent of glasnost in 1985. Btw, in the USA I list myself W. George Krasnow, Russian-American Samizdat,
    http://fgfbooks.com/Krasnow-W.George/Krasnow-bio.html

    Such is the irony of history, that alternative authors in the West have to rely on digital self-publishing to counter the Media Moguls Monopoly. As to your comparisons of the USSR and Fascist Italy and National-Socialist Germany, I concede your point as my knowledge of the last two is limited.

    Still, you may have missed my mention of “the book The Origin of Totalitarian Democracy by Jacob Leib Talmon (1916 –1980), Professor of Modern History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Reviewing genealogy of totalitarianism, Talmon argued that Communist political Messianism stemmed from the French Revolution, and stressed the similarities between Jacobinism and Stalinism”. It must be added that Lenin approvingly cited Marx in blaming the Jacobins for their defeat on their “petty-bourgeois soft-hardheartedness” and promised that the Bolsheviks would not yield to such sentimentality. The annihilation of Tsar Nicholas II, his family and children showed that Lenin kept his promise to Marx.

    As to Christian Zionist, I think you did not notice my qualification of “electoral support”. Simply there are not as many Jewish voters in the USA, as there are Christian Zionist voters who may not even think about Israel but tend, under the influence of mass media, to support the Neocon dictated US policy in the Middle East.

    Based on my experience of living in several countries, plus some reading, I disagree that “Weber’s ‘Protestant work-ethic’ idea was demolished long ago”. It is not necessarily “Protestant work-ethic”. Weber noticed, e.g., that such minorities as the Russian Old Believers and Polish communities deep in the Russian Empire were doing economically much better than their unoppressed majorities. Ironically, a certain amount of “oppression” is good for an individual and community as it teaches self-reliance. It is certainly better than revolting for revenge or for the hell of it. Yes, we all can learn from each other. Yes, I would recommend Professor Yuri Slezkine’s The Jewish Century for understanding what worked and what did not work in the 20th century so we could avoid devastating wars and advance peace and harmony on the Planet.

    Diphtheria was regularly vaccinated for in the fifties in the USA.
    In fact, it was so “generic” that “vaccination” meant vaccination against diphtheria.
    A very dangerous childhood disease, in a completely different ball park from the ” standard” childhood diseases, measles/mumps/chicken pox.
    E.g.:

    “Diphtheria once was a major cause of illness and death among children. The United States recorded a high of 206,000 cases of diphtheria in 1921, resulting in 15,520 deaths (a case-fatality ratio of 7.5%). Diphtheria case fatality rates range from about 20% for those under age five and over age 40, to 5-10% for those aged 5-40 years. Diphtheria was the third leading cause of death in children in England and Wales in the 1930s. Diphtheria is extremely rare in the United States today; between 2004 and 2011, no cases of diphtheria were reported to public health officials. One case was provisionally reported in 2012.
    . . .
    Since the introduction of effective immunization, starting in the 1920s, diphtheria rates have dropped dramatically in the United States and other countries that vaccinate widely.”

    I still have a coin-size mark on my thigh where needle pricks were made and a scab formed. This round vaccination scar was visible on the arms of most adults at that time. I was vaccinated well before the age of five. I don’t know whether whooping cough was included in that vaccination.

    Measles had practically died a natural death by the mid-sixties.
    You can read some details here
    https://academic.oup.com/jid/article/189/Supplement_1/S1/820569

    and muse on how the huge cost of vaccines (profits going to Big Pharma, of course) balances out against the goal of 100% elimination. IMO the cost in $$ would not be justified if we had health care for all, because the cost of medical care for those cases who end up needing it would look different.

    I don’t know the history of why suddenly the standard childhood diseases were seen a needing to be totally eradicated. What concerns me is infants getting hit with multiple vaccinations before their own immune systems have had a chance to develop. Furthermore, arguments of . . .a doctor whose name I can’t recall about the fallacies of “herd immunity” makes sense to me. He has been totally vilified for expressing these views, based on his analyses of measles data.

    “Ironically, a certain amount of “oppression” is good for an individual and community as it teaches self-reliance.”

    I believe the ethic or practice or necessity for self-reliance is key in economic development, whether stemming from oppression or environmental circumstances.
    It has often been noted that the area of fastest economic development in Colonial and post-Revolution North America took place in the “poorest” region, the one that had the *least* natural resources—no rich agricultural soils, no mineral wealth to speak of, harsh climate, etc.. Namely, southern New England. What these people did have was a few rivers and streams to power mills, and access to the sea. Plus they were relatively highly literate. That region justifies the term “Yankee ingenuity.” People had to figure out how to solve their own problems. Often they invented some kind of tool for their own use, then started to manufacture it for sale. They invented machines and processes to build them. Connecticut and Rhode Island became centers for precision manufactures such as clocks, guns, later typewriters, etc. They brought raw materials into New England and processed them into textiles, shoes, and other stuff in mill towns such as Lowell and Lawrence and Fall River, Mass., Providence, RI, and Hartford, Conn. And they traded and weren’t afraid to go to sea, or to invest in ships that put to sea, out of Salem, Boston, Gloucester, and Marblehead, Mass., and Newport, RI. For both far-flung trading and deep-ocean fishing ventures.

    “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
    Not sure how this relates to the situ in Russia, since I don’t know much about that.

    What you state is true. But there is something else at work here. If Hitler would have won the world would be a much better place. But the Allies would claim that if they would have won the world would be just as good accept everyone would be equal and different races would all be happy living side by side etc. In other words the liberal leftists dream of a perfect world . But the Allies won and we have their rotten, decaying world. Hitler had to lose for us to know how right he was.

    If Germany had won WW1 the world would be a much, much, much better place, no WW2, Adolf spending his life on his artistic achievements, everyone friends, the war to end all wars would have, no nukes anywhere, Americans with free health care for all and no standing army, no CIA, no Jewish state, the Jews not hated for their hating, Europe a group of friendly, historic monarchies and one republic, an extra holiday season when we would all fly to Iran to roam the hills, looking back on a century of peace and bliss.

    If Europeans had done what China did, they would not have discovered the world, mapped the earth, and allow humans to become conscious of the earth as a whole.

    I wouldn’t say that Whites are less intelligent, in fact I would say they have PROVEN to be the most intelligent race by far, HOWEVER, they are too good for their own good, and are very easily taken because of their innocence and gullibility and their obedience to conform to societal laws put in place.

    As I said innocence, gullibility and insouciance are signs of lower intelligence. There are many very intelligent White people…but they are outnumbered by idiots.

    Thank you, my friend SND, for sharing your recollections of the U of Chicago. Yes, I have fond memories of my stay at the U of Chicago for the calendar year of 1966 when I was a Foreign Visiting Fellow from the University of Lund, Sweden. I was attached to the Slavic Areas Studies and my duty was sharing with students the realia of the USSR. But my personal challenge–and a pleasure–was learning English. Which I did, at least, enough for me to decide to stay in the US. My chief sponsor was the late Professor Jeremy Azrael whom I had met in 1959 when he and his wife Gabriela stayed at the U of Moscow as part of the first student exchange between the USSR and the USA.
    I lived at the International Student House opposite to the stature of the Knight of Blanik dedicated to Thomas Masaryk. I was often invited for supper in the hope of Jeremy, his wife Gabriela and their three cute small daughters. I was also a frequent guest at the hospitable home of fellow students Steve and Bobbie Rosenstein who loved to play for me records with Fiddler on the Roof. I enjoyed their company because they did not speak Russian and I was forced to handle English. During the Summer they even took me to the home of their parents in New York City.
    The names of Thomas Riha and Richard Wortman ring the bell only dimly. I only heard of the latter’s scholarly reputation, but wonder why you call him Riha’s sidekick? But I well remember lectures on the subjects more familiar to me, Russian Lit and linguistics, taught by Professors Edward Wasiolek and Aronson, as well as my Russian conversations with students of Professor Gottschalk. As to the “subversive” books you and I used to buy in the book store, thank God there was no “politkorrektnost” yet.
    At the end of the year I felt well prepared to head for a Ph.D. program at the U of Washington in Seattle!

    If you want a little peek into the “jewish genius”, take a gander at American sports. Jews have completely transformed and ruined them.

    Look at the first “Super Bowl”, how it was conducted and the respect for the game itself, the overall character of the participants etc…

    Now look at the sordid spectacle it has become.

    I won’t even get into Jew Hollyweird, that would require volumes.

    Jews are mostly garbage, just like niggers.

    @Just passing through

    In my mind, the White races were able to achieve this intellectual freedom due to th subjugation of the Colored races.

    Obviously you then leave out or dismiss the entirety of European history, since Europe had no black people toiling in their fields. The specific subjugation of so-called “Coloured Races” started with the drive to empire, a late development and competitive. And this led (I am now making casual linkages) to the weaponised idea of ‘races’ to justify predatory behaviour….and now you, and most of the United States, are left with a fossilised racialism and a tradition of absurd claims to racial superiorities.

    All of this looks very strange to European eyes, where – incidentally – we have already 70 years ago, paid a high price for this ‘race’ nonsense – see Hitler’s ‘race purity’ etc. In truth, in Europe, the distinction between nations and groups is cultural rather than racial, based on language, religion, geography, history, philosophy, world view…right down to trivia. Moreover, while every group and nation has its welcome place in the mosaic, higher value is accorded to the contributions to civilisation made by specific groups.

    It is perverse and dangerous to evaluate individuals, groups and nations in terms of biology: I’m surprised you can’t see that. But perhaps you approve of the biologically based “minorities” wreaking havoc on the little that remains of European civilisation in the USA. Or – you have truly created & stew in your own “culture” (as in yoghourt).

    @Ricardo Duchesne

    I know no one will read these essays, but here they are:

    Thanks for sharing these very informative essays, Prof. Duchesne.

    Of the two, I preferred the second.

    Here are my favourite quotes from both.

    1. Excerpts from The Transcendental Mind Of Europeans Stands Above The Embedded Mind Of Asians:

    It was ancient Greece that produced the allegory of the cave, of a thinking being who walks out of any prior determination, any context, in order to find universally truthful ideas, rather than merely trying to elucidate what are the roles and rituals the self must follow in order to fit in properly within the established ideals of what constitutes proper behavior…

    Could it be that the words “masculinity,” “agonistic,” “logic,” and “dialectic” are inseparable from the word “truth”?

    Karl Jaspers’ theory of the “Axial Age”:

    Jaspers proposed this theory in reaction to the divisions of the Second World War, in the hope that humans would overcome national and cultural particularisms by realizing that the major civilizations had a common spiritual origin, “one single origin” and “one goal” for enlightenment and universalism. The aim was to strip the West of its uniqueness, and downplay and hide away the multiple intellectual revolutions the West experienced after the Axial Age. If only Europeans would see themselves as members of a common world with very similar origins and common transcendental goals, Jaspers reasoned, there would be no more wars, and all the peoples would finally realize they are part of a universal historical narrative…

    Roetz acknowledges in passing that “a great number of cultures [did] not take part” in the Axial Age. In truth, the only real intellectual competitor the West has witnessed is China, and this competitor is no match.

    2. Excerpts from On The “Unreflected Substantiality” Of The Chinese Mind:

    All in all, the ancient Greeks lacked a fully articulated concept of moral self-determination. Socrates represented defiance against the gods, but he did not argue that humans have a “natural right” to disagree and oppose the consensus of the city-state, the common will of the polis. It was only in the modern era, during the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, that Hegel saw the stage of Moralität, or, in Kohlberg’s language, the post-conventional stage…

    Nature reached its highest goal of becoming an object of knowledge and learning what it is through the reflections of Europeans.

    I noticed that Ron hasn’t bothered responding to your excellent comment. Most peculiar, as he’s normally up to the challenge of a worthy opponent.

    That’s dumb. If Christians Zionists didn’t care about abortion, or gay marriage, or all the other things you claim they think are pointless to fight about cuz Jesus is coming Any Day Now, why would they bother making a fuss about it? Which, they do make such a fuss, to the extent that the folks wanting their vote pander to them by making campaign promises to ban all this iniquity. (But, strangely, said candidates never enact these bans when they get in.)

    The simple fact that candidates *promise* to ban abortion, etc., and then never do it when they’re in is prima facie evidence that they are controlled by some OTHER group.

    Bob Dylan, a Jew, won a Nobel Prize for his “music?” I know that Dylan had fans but how anyone could like this guy’s “music” is beyond the belief. He talked rather than sing and lets be real, the guy talked like his mouth was full of marbles.

    Well, yeah, that’s kinda why they call it the Nobel Prize in Literature, in his case for poetry and songwriting, and not the Grammy Award for Vocal Harmonization.

    I hardly could understand what the guy said half the time.

    I hardly could believe they have liner notes for that nowadays.

    Many thanks to Dr. Krasnov for this brilliant piece. It covers a lot of ground. My comments will focus on just one aspect.

    Dr. Krasnov lays responsibility on Marx for all the totalitarian horrors of the Soviet State. He deserves his share, I suppose, but let’s not forget that he was in his grave for over a quarter century before the October Revolution.

    I think we must consider Marx in at least two different ideological contexts. One is his historical analysis. The other is his theories of governance.

    A properly understood Class Analysis is essential to understanding democracy itself. Marx articulated a ‘vision’ of History that broke considerable new ideological ground in helping working people understand their predicament.

    In the context of his Class Analysis of History, I have always regarded him as one of History’s great geniuses. ( I first read his ‘Manifesto’ around ’69 or so).

    His theories about governance were all no more than fanciful ‘castles in the air’, rooted in theories of human nature that just do not comply with human reality.

    He assumed that given the opportunity, the ‘better angels of our nature’, (as Lincoln called them), would prevail. The ‘state’ would “wither away” because sheer human goodness would make laws, and law enforcement, unnecessary.

    How poetically noble … if stupid … But noble indeed … He put too much foolish faith in the goodness of Humankind.

    Even History’s great geniuses walk on feet of clay.

    “From each according to her or his ability, to each according to her or his need”, could only work among a population of saints. Once our most basic human needs are met, (shelter, clothing, food, etc), we are then strongly motivated by Desire, not by need.

    And the strongest lads are always keen to win the hearts of the prettiest girls. Don’t tell them what they need, when their hearts beat fast and strong for what they WANT! Which girl’s heart does not beat fast with her desire when a strong handsome swain comes nigh?

    Tell people what they need? When their hearts burn with human desire?

    Totalitarianism is the inevitable result. Only extreme authoritarian measures can have any success in restraining human Desire, and in the end, even totalitarianism will be no match against our Desire.

    There is no force on earth stronger than the desire in human hearts to mate favorably, have children, and continue their own families’ legacies of love.

    Egalitarianism? Gee … Ain’t it funny how under egalitarian ‘socialism’, the strongest still end up with the nicest views of the mountain, or the shore, to attract comely maidens to the lair?

  239. @Vladislav Krasnov

    As to Christian Zionist, I think you did not notice my qualification of “electoral support”. Simply there are not as many Jewish voters in the USA, as there are Christian Zionist voters who may not even think about Israel but tend, under the influence of mass media, to support the Neocon dictated US policy in the Middle East.

    It is doubtful that the “electoral support” of the Zio-Christians changes very much. In the first case, pretty much all important decisions regarding foreign policy in the US are made by politically-connected insiders in Washington; rarely, if ever, are they actually debated in public elections. Consider, for example, how Zionists were easily able to influence the policies of Truman, Johnson and Nixon even before the Zio-Christian movement emerged as a political force in the late 70s.

    Secondly: most of those Zio-Christians, being White conservatives opposed to abortion and crime, and in favor of the family and the Second Amendment, would still have to vote Republican anyway, even if they weren’t also pro-Israeli.

    For those two reasons, I maintain that the only invaluable service the Zio-Christians really do for the Zionists is to give the latter a great big collective ‘shabbas goy frontman’ onto whom the Jewish Zionists can deflect all blame for their own actions. That way, when the gatekeeper lefty ‘anti-Zionist’ Jews come along, they spend all their time dumping on the Christian Zionists rather than having to talk about the Jewish Zionists. See how that works?

  240. RE:
    In relation to Karl Marx (1818 – 1883),[2] one may not just sigh but weep for the millions of victims of the bloody violence his teaching of the necessity of class struggle and world revolution had unleashed world-wide. One certainly feels immense sadness at the millions of lives lost in the USSR (GULAG and more), Eastern Europe, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and wherever else Communists were allowed to take the reins.

    Do all the ghastly crimes committed in the name of Karl Marx for the last 100+ years or so come even close in number and horror to those committed in the name of Jesus of Nazareth for nearly 2,000 years, i.e., since not long after He was crucified?

    Jewish Exceptionalism, such as that celebrated by Bret Stephens, is a fundamental tenet of the ultra-Orthodox version of that “religion”.

    “The difference between a Jewish soul and souls of non-Jews—all of them in all different levels—is greater and deeper than the difference between a human soul and the souls of cattle.”
    — Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook (aka Rabbi Kook the Elder)

    “One of the basic tenets of the Lurianic Cabbala is the absolute superiority of the Jewish soul and body over the non-Jewish soul and body. According to the Lurianic Cabbala, the world was created solely for the sake of Jews; the existence of non-Jews was subsidiary.”

    Why is the US Honoring a Racist Rabbi?
    by Alison Weir, Counterpunch, April 7, 2014
    https://www.counterpunch.org/2014/04/07/why-is-the-us-honoring-a-racist-rabbi/

    The very idea of Jewish genetic superiority and/or ethnic exceptionalism is an ancient part of the Jewish religion and not just the Talmudic perversion of Judaism that is the topic of Shahak and Mezvinsky’s book:

    The “Chosen People”
    In Judaism, “chosenness” is the belief that the Jewish people were singularly chosen to enter into a covenant with G-d. This idea has been a central one throughout the history of Jewish thought, is deeply rooted in biblical concepts and has been developed in talmudic, philosophic, mystical and contemporary Judaism.
    Encyclopedia Judaica
    https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-quot-chosen-people-quot

    Zionists got hold of this idea and ran with it. Many of the Zionist founding fathers are quiet about their views on this topic, but one of them put it right out there for all to see. Are you aware of the wit and wisdom of Zionist Founding Father, Arthur Ruppin?

    The only thing to change, if anything, in recent times is the pseudo-science that can be extracted by bigots from modern molecular cell biology and presented as legitimate:

    Rabbinate DNA tests seek Jewishness in the blood, become a bone of contention
    Controversial method began in Moscow, spread to Jerusalem and Sydney, as a private bid to confirm ex-Soviets as Jews. Now it faces a High Court challenge and a thunderous outcry. The testing has been pilloried by activists representing immigrants, by scientists, and by politicians as a chilling, pseudo-scientific development more suited to eugenics-crazy Nazi Germany than the Jewish state, and that dangerously risks turning Jewishness into a racial, rather than religious or national, identity.

    Recently, that perverse notion — that Judaism is genetically determined and therefore Jews are somehow separate from the rest of us homo sapiens — has been incarnated in an executive order from POTUS Trump (according to Bibi Netanyahu, the best U.S. President Israel has ever had):

    An Ominousness Act: Jewish Nationality
    Last week, President Trump signed an executive order that implicitly defines Jewishness as a racial or national category and not as just a religious category. This is ominous. The order reinforces the Department of Education’s power to punish colleges that receive federal tax dollars if they allow Palestinian solidarity activities that offend pro-Israel Jewish students who dubiously equate any criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism.

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/12/16/an-ominousness-act-jewish-nationality/

    Is there some kind of contagious virus that is infecting peoples’ brains and forcing them to propose and defend such utter bullshit?

    Exceptionalism of every kind is one of the pillars of our unsustainable relationship with our beautiful planet. It also is a fundamental principle of almost every human religion. Unless it is replaced with Egalitarianism, it will destroy us all.
