We should not underestimate the power and logic of globalism. The fact is that, while Western nationalists lament diversity, the West’s wealthiest places are extraordinarily diverse and are growing richer: I am talking about our so-called ‘global cities’. These include such places as New York City, London, Paris, and, beyond the West, Singapore or Dubai. In some sense, we might consider the greater Bay Area in California surrounding Silicon Valley to be a kind of global city. We should try to understand the prosperity of these places and their future prospects.

Western nationalists associate ‘diversity’ with black and brown people with low average IQs and comparatively high welfare use and criminality. Western globalists however – who form a solid 20% of the white population, often the most educated and intelligent portion – associate diversity with the ‘global cities’ they live in, which are perfectly functional from an economic point of view, and that is typically enough for them. For a nationalist, ‘diversity’ might conjure up grisly images of the victims of Islamic terrorism or the treasonous mass sexual abuse by Pakistani gangs against English girls. But for a globalist, ‘diversity’ means the kebab shop down the corner, a kindly Mexican nanny, or the competent Asian guys at the office. And they can only think: Why are you being such a hater?

Global cities are typically ‘majority-minority,’ no ethnic or racial group being a majority on their own. In Paris or London, it is true, the prevalence of European migrants means that whites form a small majority, but the native British or French whites certainly form a minority.

The Île-de-France region of France has a GDP per capita 177% the EU average, for London the figure is 187%. Unemployment in such regions is typically low. Their achievement is all the more remarkable in that these regions typically have seen a growing population over the years. Note: I am not justifying global cities. I am merely observing that their ability to provide jobs and social services for their highly diverse populations is high . . . and getting higher.

Why do global cities work? The explanation I find most persuasive is that of cognitive elitism. Cities are where people get together and connect, then being able to exchange, collaborate, and specialize, thus producing wealth and innovate, in a way which would be quite impossible for individuals isolated across various villages. In a modern economy, this means intelligent people gathering in innovative, wealth-creating, and/or wealth-siphoning institutions, such as the great tech and financial services companies, or really all the multinationals whose products and services we take for granted. I for one do not dismiss the accomplishments of Google, Carrefour, and IKEA.

Within the United States of America, to simplify somewhat, educated people are leaving the often Trump-voting heartlands in favor of the West Coast (especially California), Texas, and the Northeast.[1]This data also indicates that smart people are leaving New York State however. I have no insight into this. Are people leaving to avoid prohibitively high living costs? In Europe, the southern and eastern periphery of the European Union is being strip-mined of its human capital, Portuguese nurses and Romanian doctors preferring to move en masse to secure the better wages and public services of northwestern Europe (they move, it is true, not necessarily to the big cities, but often to more suburban settings).


Tim Ball and Ginger Hervey/POLITICO

A stark fact is that global cities seem to be getting more rather than less viable as they get more diverse. After a sharp rise in criminality in the final Obama years – partly it seems due to a loss of nerve on the part of the president, who preferred to scapegoat law enforcement officers rather than face the reality of black crime – homicide has been steadily declining over the past two years, perhaps not coincidentally, since President Donald Trump has been in office. New York City’s murder rate has been steadily declining, partly thanks to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s stop-and-frisk policies targeting black and Mestizo young men.

A point I want to make: global cities’ diversity challenges can, in large part, be managed through a regular dose of liberal hypocrisy/cognitive dissonance. New Yorkers instituting racial profiling in their police force to keep themselves safe is only one example. Another is the wider phenomenon of gentrification, whereby the more problematic minority groups can simply be priced out of wherever affluent liberals live (typically imposing said problematic minorities onto neighboring white middle or working class towns).

Another solution is racial self-segregation, a very popular practice in all global cities, particularly among white liberals. You can find innumerable maps documenting residential self-segregation: whether in the United States (notably New York and Los Angeles), London (where, interestingly, white European immigrants seem to mostly settle in white British neighborhoods), or Brussels (where European and Muslim immigrants typically settle in separate neighborhoods).

In general, the authoritarian state’s ability to manage diversity has still only been partially implemented. Mass surveillance, gun control, censorship, and welfare can do further wonders in domesticating mankind and making us almost completely docile. European blacks, while not particularly academically or socially successful, are typically much more docile the American blacks, I believe because of lack of guns, ample welfare, and, perhaps, survival of traditional African culture (is there any data comparing crime by Caribbean vs. African blacks?). In another genre, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates, as authoritarian states, can manage their diversity problems very well.

In the global cities, whatever negative economic effects there are to unskilled immigration appear to be more than offset by the benefits of gifted immigration.

Beyond brains, global cities attract money, namely, Third-World money. All the wealthy people in the world – from Latin America through Africa, the former Soviet space, and much of Asia – wish for themselves and their children to enjoy an economic, personal, and legal security which can only be found in the Western world, with our attachment to fair play and the rule of law.[2]Actually, they would be even safer in Japan, but the Japanese have largely restricted immigration up to now, wishing to preserve their national identity. Various nouveaux-riches from China, India, Russia, the Gulf states, and elsewhere are then buying up property, media, and football clubs in the West and sending their children to our universities. This is driving up property prices and, hence, contributing to the poor-minority-removing gentrification mentioned above. The owners of Third-World money are typically not stupid but are often vicious and corrupt.

The process of modernity, an exceptional development in world history, was launched by the Western world. Capitalism and industrial development were perfected by the Protestant countries – the United States, Great Britain, Germany – and then more-or-less successfully copied elsewhere, notably in the rest of Europe and in East Asia. However, innovation and science today, modernity’s ongoing dynamic development, have to some extent transcended Western nations as such. There is a real sense in which New York and California are not America anymore, Paris is not France, London is not England.

In short, Western economic and technological dynamism is no longer an endogenous national process – consolidation of national identity, mass literacy, urbanization, each of which maximized the nation’s developmental potential. Modernity has since truly taken on a life of its own, no longer being executed by Western nations, but happening to Western nations.

The global cities represent a global phenomenon which has, for various historical reasons, nested within Western nations: the convergence of intelligences from across the entire world and the convergence of moneyed interest from the entire world. These are in a process of symbiosis and partial fusion with the West’s own liberal-capitalist elites. Western nations’ elites, their brains, have gone from being patriotic elites with a strong sense of national purpose, to deracinated white liberals with no particular attachment in a coalition with other groups, namely Jews and various minority groups, rich or poor. To get a sense of this new elite, consider the very useful Forbes lists of billionaires for various countries, a diverse lot (disproportionately Jewish, wherever this group is present).

The deracinated white liberal metropolitan is a strange breed, at once privileged and, often, a non-citizen with no say in his adoptive nation’s politics. Cut off from the mentality and rhythm of his nation of residence, he may be possessed by various degrees of incomprehension, fear, and loathing for the wider population, which may vote for pseudo-nationalists, because, being normal human beings, they like the idea of having politicians who at least pretend to be on their side and to preserve their homeland.

The fact that global cities, and the Western nations in general, are continuing to grow economically and attract brains suggests that the logic of the process has not yet finished. There is still more ‘efficiency’ to be wrung out of the system.

This isn’t to say I think this process is sustainable, let alone good. However, I suspect it can go on for a long while still. We should not underestimate this, nor the appeal that ‘high-globalism’ has – the globalism of big business, of science, of technological innovation, of social transformation – on a significant fraction of the most active and dynamic Westerners. If Western societies were under severe strain – a great war, economic collapse, or environmental breakdown – whites may wish they lived among their own kind in the suburbs or the countryside rather than the global cities. The violent race riots which strike American, British, and French cities every decade or so are a testament to this. But, while we may have reason to hope for collapse, we need to patiently work in the knowledge that collapse is unlikely anytime soon.

  2. Svevlad says:

    Eh, it’s classical “great city” scheme. Biggest cities attract all the people, but they’re the most fragile too. If the balance isn’t good (ie affordable housing schemes tend to do this, otherwise blacks in america would probably be forced to scatter and become small farmers, or a European situation where city centre is actually good and the suburbs are shite)

  3. The “global cities” are parasites looting, through the financialization of the economy, the rest of the country.

    It is their access to the unending stream of free money from the central banks that they own that supports their existence.

  6. anonymous[191] • Disclaimer says:

    The fact that New York, London and Paris are “world” cities is not news, they’ve been that way for at least one hundred years, two hundred or more for London or Paris. The quality of life for the majority deteriorates more and more as the cities become darker. As for Singapore being a diverse city, this is nonsense. Singapore is a Chinese city-state with an Indian and Malay minority. The Chinese have most of the money and run almost everything. Bahrain is only important because it has oil. If there was no oil, it would have no importance whatsoever. The Bay area is not rich because it has lots of ethnic diversity, it was well-to-do 100 years ago, when it was 90 percent white. The wealth that built the magnificent mansions of Nob Hill was not created by Indian internet programmers but by the smarts and backbreaking labor of white men. The writer is viewing the world as it is today and seems to believe that “diversity” isn’t a bad thing because a lot of the places that have “diversity” are wealthy at the present time. These places are wealthy at the present time because they either attract money or produce it through various means. Remember Port Royal Jamaica was one of the richest cities in the world around 1650 because it attracted the money of a lot of pirates. Kingston Jamaica today is an economic backwater. Detroit in 1940 was an economic powerhouse and look it it today, a junkyard. The same could happen to any of these places mentioned if certain things take a turn for the worst. Prosperity is a very fickle thing and is very fleeting. One thing’s for sure, diversity doesn’t create wealth, it creates confusion!

  10. “This data also indicates that smart people are leaving New York State however. I have no insight into this. Are people leaving to avoid prohibitively high living costs?”

    The high living costs drive out the smart but not rich group. They can see that the game is rigged if you’re not either working on Wall Street or collecting bucks in “public service,” like our Long Island Railroad overtime workers collecting over 400k with overtime. Some of the people leaving are taking pensions in six figures to go live in Florida where they won’t pay income taxes to support the state, as they willin NY.

    The biggest group getting driven out is maybe 98-110 IQ middle class who simply cannot get ahead due to high taxes and high housing cost. Ominously, the expensive houses in the suburbs are failing to bring in anywhere CLOSE to asking prices. People blame the inability to deductSALT on Federal returns, but it’s more likely the collapse of reliable breadwinner jobs that allow you to take out a mortgage confident in being able to pay it back. This will lead to a bifurcated real estate market.

    When London was really a First World City.

  14. The Île-de-France region of France has a GDP per capita 177% the EU average,

    This is misleading. GDP per capita is hugely inflated because of the corporate headquarter effect. In other words, economic activity is done all over the country, but it is only counted in their headquarters.

    A better measurement is AIC (actual individual consumption). A good example of this is Ireland. Their GDP per capita got hugely inflated because a ton of US corporations set up shop there for their EU-wide headquarters. As a result, Ireland became ‘richer’ than Norway on paper.

    However, Eurostat publishes their 2018 numbers for all AIC figures for every EU country. Ireland comes off as poorer than the EU average.

    Furthermore, rich Parisians have been fleeing the city in recent years. They often say that the rich are the harbringers of fortunes of a nation. Nations such as Australia have been net receivers for a long time now. Ditto Canada. These rich people have been surveyed and when asked why they left they mentioned the usual stuff (taxes etc) but many also talked about “religious tensions” and “social instability”.

    Paris may do better than most of France, but that doesn’t mean it is doing well per se. GDP per capita figures for captial regions is misleading and the rich and well-to-do are fleeing Paris. It would be more accurate to say that it is a region that is sinking slower than the rest of the country. Just as you can live well in the richer parts of Cape Town, South Africa. But ultimately those who are well-off pack their bags for better countries in the end. Same is happening in Paris. It is not ‘thriving’. It is simply doing least bad.

    Obviously, the author of this piece knows very very little about contemporary ‘London’ – that is the old GLC area.

    It is a high unemployment, high welfare use, overcrowded, badly housed, dirty,ill kempt, rotting, expensive slum with Latin American style income inequality and appallingly high crime. And it’s mostly non white.

    To understand modern London, he should reflect on the horrific murders of the French exchange students Bonomo and Ferez by the white trash Irishmen Sonnex and Farmer back in 2019. Read it and weep – that’s the *REALITY* of modern London – hopeless pauper drug adducts living in shitty overcrowded slums murdering Frenchmen for toffees. It’s a real horrible dystopian Hell – overcrowded, poor, hopeless and chock full of wogs – with Dickensian levels of wealth inequality.

    I suspect this is not the case. There are probably other reasons for the crime differences. Here are two suggestions:

    Different Blacks. For example, American Blacks mostly descend from West Africans, but there are many East Africans in Europe.

    Different migration patterns. On average, Blacks who arrive in Europe had to have more initiative to get there than did the descendants of slaves who had no initiative. Therefore, one expects them to be less dysfunctional on average.

    I also wonder what impact Merkel’s migrants will have on these crime trends.

  18. In France and living in a largely African (both Arab and black) suburb, I can attest to at least my general impression of far less menace in the blacks here. Still, I think the governor of Maine and the mayor of Portland should be ridden out on a rail for inviting Somalis and Congolese to come diversify the place. Must every haven be destroyed?

  19. We should try to understand the prosperity of these places and their future prospects.

    You might take a deeper dive into that prosperity: In London, 70% of its residents’ wealth is owned by the top 20%; the bottom 50% of residents altogether have a little more than 5% of the total wealth; the bottom 10% have negative wealth. Income distribution is a bit “fairer,” but the little people have a much larger nut to carry in proportion to their income, particularly because they live in such a “prosperous,” expensive area. I would assert the case of Paris is similar, as is NYC.

    In the global cities, whatever negative economic effects there are to unskilled immigration appear to be more than offset by the benefits of gifted immigration.

    Yep, it’s how I extracted enough dough from The City to buy a chateau in the French countryside, further aided by it being denuded of talent, opportunities, and wealth for its locals, on what is essentially a middle class stash of wealth.

    European blacks, while not particularly academically or socially successful, are typically much more docile the American blacks….

    Maybe in your corner of France, but not in London, and I hear the Nigerian Mafia is giving the Italian Mafia a run for its money in Sicilia.

    All the wealthy people in the world – from Latin America through Africa, the former Soviet space, and much of Asia – wish for themselves and their children to enjoy an economic, personal, and legal security …

    But they haven’t quite nailed down food security, which is why they are working furiously to make global agrabusiness the norm and doing what they can to kill the family farms. One reason I bought a chateau was to have the luxury of being relatively self sufficient if need be.

    … which can only be found in the Western world, with our attachment to fair play and the rule of law.

    Maybe in your corner of France, but everywhere I go in the Western world is subject to the Rule by Law for the benefit of the oligarchs, civil servants, and their protected-class pets.

As late Sam Huntington quoted, if my Alzheimer doesn’t fail me, Roger Scrutton–civilization is a culture writ large(c). So, what is exactly the significance of Dubai.

    Not everything is reducible to oligarchs, albeit this factor is present too. Most about Gulf satrapies, yes, including slave labor, such as the one which builds infrastructure for WC 2022 in yet another Gulfie shithole of Qatar, is related to general stupidity of Western upper-upper-middle class and a complete loss of own culture, which, BTW, scandalous awarding of this very same WC 2022 to Qatar, testifies perfectly to. Most of it is due to an implosion of the intellectual level of Western “elites”, not to mention of them being extremely uncultured as a rule.

So the unz.com analysis can progress in quality, and building blocks can be retained to further a worldview that holds as a parameter to sound the future.

    It is not custom here, or elsewhere, to insist on admitting one’s errors, and the treadmill of linear articles does everything to help fade the fallacies. Be a man Guillaume Durocher and build your reputation for straight-forwardness, the world is a living thing.

    Interesting take, and I agree. But I assume nationalists would rather have ethnic sovereignty over a bit of extra wealth?

    Also keep in mind that global cities function because there are still enough whites in those cities to enforce the kind of liberal order that keeps modernity running (Asian nations use different methods).

    If a minority population gets large enough, you could see a tipping point in which liberal democratic norms are violated, setting off a chain of events that lead to globalism’s downfall. In fact I am quite confident of this, no non-white group is anywhere as dedicated to liberal universalism as whites, not even very assimilated ones.

I’m sure it’s true that, if you take a hair-trigger African-American with more felonies than birthdays behind him off the high-danger streets around MLK Houses in Inner City, MD and drop him into the middle of the River Daze Crafts Fair in White Bread, ND, the chances he will murder someone in the next 24 hours drops. But he is by no means more docile than he was. Only his circumstances have become less risky.

A lot of small businesses, even tech companies are moving also. They can exchange their high value property for much nicer places. The employees move with them for the same reason. Retirees can sell coastal property and move to the Midwest and pocket substantial difference, and for many, a much nicer place to live.

    I found this from the NY State Comptroller:

    Is My Pension Taxable?
    Your pension is subject to federal income tax, but it is not taxed by New York State. If you move out of New York, you may have to pay (other) state taxes on your pension. Visit the Retired Public Employees Association website to see which states tax pensions.

    So we are both wrong: NY doesn’t tax state pensions either in-state or out of state. Which means that income taxes aren’t enough to drive some people away. I guess it’s the property taxes, then: over 11K in my inexpensive town in my very expensive county.

    Of course, NY State DOES tax private pensions and also 401K account withdrawals, and those are likely to be from non-state workers. So its pension rules will tend to keep (or at least not drive away) public sector workers and scatter wealthy private sector ones. Though I have earned thousands of dollars I’ve put into a 401K or 403B account (avoiding NY income tax at a marginal rate of about 9%), I see no need to pay out dollars from those accounts to NY state when I’m ready to collect.

My last visit to Bay Area was in 2015–I swore I never visit it again. I can barely tolerate Moscow for two weeks, St.Petersburg–about the same, and these are world-class truly cultured cities. The scale and the sheer size of humanity are not only mind-boggling, they are also tiresome. Baby Boomers and their dot com econo-cultural derivatives are the most damaging phenomenon visited upon the United States since the times of Great Depression. But I digress, I agree–there is nothing attractive in SF or LA anymore. Portland and Seattle are also getting there–they become unlivable.

    Laborers migrate to Dubai for wages that are more than double their wages at home.

    Dubai also offers laborers other advantages:
    – Safe drinking water
    – Very little crime
    – Different ethnicities, religions, and castes coexist peacefully

    Dubai is a small kingdom of 3.1 million people.
    85% of Dubai’s population are foreign guest workers, known as “expats”.

    For a small kingdom with almost no oil, Dubai has created a colossal number of job opportunities for millions of the world’s poorest people.

    Why have Dubai’s citizens tolerated becoming a small minority in their own nation in just a few decades?

    Taxes and fees on expats pay for generous benefits that are reserved only for Dubai’s citizens:
    – Government jobs with good pay, benefits and pensions
    – Free education
    – Free healthcare
    – Subsidized housing

    Dubai has created a revolutionary new approach to immigration:

    Dubai sells the right to live in Dubai for a profit, and uses the profit to pay for generous benefits for Dubai’s citizens.

    Note:
    – Expats have no access to government benefits.
    – Unemployed expats are deported.
    – Expats are never allowed to become citizens.

    That’s interesting. How long has that arrangement been in place?

    I suspect that the only way to make that work is to ensure that any given expat can only stay in Dubai for so long. Otherwise, the expats will eventually stop being appreciative of the increased standard of living, and instead become resentful of the two-tier system, and start making demands for equality.

    I’d wager that this system is unstable. Even moreso than a liberal democracy.

    True, but Britain’s murder rate IIRC is about five times less than America’s. ergo Britain’s blacks are about five times less murderous, even if they are equally disproportionatelly responsible for murders..

    Blacks are not 13% of the population in Britain, as they are in the US, so your comparison does not hold. For example, a county in the US that is just 5% black will always have a vastly lower murder rate than a county that is 50% black.

    But the better comparison is the white murder rate in the US vs. the white murder rate in the UK. That will tell us something, and should be readily available data.

    Well, I would expect a population sub-group of only 3% (UK blacks) to have less effect on the overall murder rate than one of 13% (USA). The murder-rate difference is 1.2 per 100k in the UK versus 5.3 per 100k in the US. Further adding to the disparity is a large block of Hispanics (17%) in the US versus a neglible number in the UK. Central and South America have the highest overall murder rates in the world, followed closely by Africa, while Asia on the whole has the lowest overall murder rates … guess where most of our future global citizens are coming from.

    You summarized very clearly what I call “the Dubaï model”. I think it works fantastically well, and will continue to do so as long as :
    * expats are not allowed to become citizens. Note that being borned or raised as a Dubai expat does NOT grant you an irrevocable right to live in Dubai as an adult, you are still an expat subject to expat conditions. Retirees are allowed to stay (without much welfare), but retirees do not have many kids
    * advocacy of foreigner rights get you deported, and possibly stripped of your citizenship if emirati. Political lobbying is not allowed there
    * the emirati population stays stable or at least increases moderately. This is key, as the pillar of the system, which is selling the right to live in Dubai for a profit, is that “living in Dubai while paying the expat taxes” is a good deal. Thanks to the high taxes in Western World, the corruption of the Second World and the economic morass in the 3rd World, it is.

    It is worth mentionning, especially everytime some libertardian mentions Dubai as a “high immigration country” with “open borders”.

    Back on the (excellent) main article, I would like to point that one of the key sources of economic efficiency of these citites is demography. More precisely, having not many kids (except for elites) and importing talent from other areas. Hence a huge appreciation of “low-kid” lifestyles, such as “carrer focused single”, divorcee, gay, “Tinder addict”, …
    This is sustainable as long as the global cities can drain young brains from low economic opportunities zones.

    That’s backwards. Britain has had a low crime rate for centuries, even when their laws were more liberal than America’s. Gun ownership thus atrophied over the years.

    “When Jamaica gained independence in 1962, the murder rate was 3.9 per 100,000 inhabitants, one of the lowest in the world. In 2005, Jamaica had 1,674 murders for a murder rate of 58 per 100,000 people. That year, Jamaica had the highest murder rate in the world.”

    Perhaps those who hold solely to the racial theory of crime could do well to note this and maybe research the topic in more detail. I’m not asking you to discard your prejudices and run to areas populated by those prone to crime, but there could be more to it than just race. Or was it that those dastardly colonial Brits knew how to deal with the natives and keep them on their best behaviour?

  76. The low wage immigrants (internal and external) aren’t a bug in the cities, they’re a feature. It is these immigrants that provide the political dominance that gives the “global cities” and non-global national capitals their income. The previous model was of transportation hubs that needed low wage immigrants to assemble useful goods from components made elsewhere. That ended c.a. AD 1960 with the advent of the interstate, electronic communications, computers, and containerization. Now the immigrants simply provide a population base that “can’t be ignored” and “must be given enough to keep them from rioting” — see Democratic debates of late 2019/06. As of AD 1970, the major cities became unproductive, which led to our present impoverishment.

    This. Catastrophism is a form of optimism. There isn’t going to be a crisis, a civil war, or anything of that kind. The most plausible future is less spectacular, but much grimmer: a long, slow decline that it seems to me can continue indefinitely. Things will gradually get worse and worse, society will become less and less safe, less and less free, culture will become more and more degraded, governments will become more and more totalitarian, etc. But there will no single cataclysm that will spark a mass racial awakening of Whites or jolt them out of their death-slumber–that is sheer wishful thinking. Nationalists and others who try to avert or even draw attention to this gentle train-wreck will be more and more thoroughly and harshly suppressed, both through state-corporate censorship and leftist violent intimidation and thuggery, and most people will just keep their heads down and try to live their lives as best as they can, which is what people always do. Turns out the ‘cliff’ is a smooth, gradual slope, so gradual you don’t even realise you’re going downhill. But it goes all the way to the bottom.

    This is Nationalism. The historic people of Dubai keep their identity and don’t subscribe to multiethnic, multicultural Brazilianization. Foreign residents earn money, send it back to their home countries, and then go back themselves, with no blah about “refugee status”, “human rights”, “building bridges”, “frontiers are racist” etc.

    In contrast, mass immigration in the West looks more like the subversion of citizenship. Democracy is gamed to ensure elite control over divided and weakened societies (with the bonus of cheap labour).

    So it seems that global cities are either multi-ethnic on the Dubai model (NO access to citizenship), or multi-ethnic on the Western European model (access to citizenship and eventual minoritization of the historic population).

    But, while we may have reason to hope for collapse, we need to patiently work in the knowledge that collapse is unlikely anytime soon.

    The collapse has been going on for some time now in the form of biological degeneration, which has been pretty much normalized. One of the largest, fastest growing industries (if not the very largest) is the medical treatment business. I wouldn’t call it “health care”, though – that’s a euphemism for pasting together with wax and string the wasted and terminally diseased. Not by a long shot is this just the crop of rotting old folks: there are more and stranger diseases showing up in newborns and children, as well as the third worlders who think life here is going to be shit hot forever. Of course, most white, native born Amerikans think the same way.

    Even organ transplants are now routinely accepted to the point where your corpse will be stripped down to provide the transplant industry with more fodder. “Presumed consent” will be the law for everyone, no opting-out permitted, except maybe for some extra special sacred cow groups whose cadavers are somehow holy and worthy of protection. Not mentioning anyone in particular, mind you. That would not be gracious.

    However, it’s just a matter of time before there is no one left with enough energy to inflict these palliatives. Even the hyenas, vultures and parasites will starve.

    You are correct. The statistics are flawed in this analogy and does not include “net” profit. These are a bunch of meaningless numbers. For example, you could make the point that California has a great economy and then say it’s because of the immigrants. Once you look at the data…it would be in spite of the immigrants. What would the economy be like if the government wasn’t paying tons of welfare to illegals and others to buy stuff? How much more money would there be if it the social services weren’t overloaded?

    Basically, these cities steal from the middle class to pay for global parasites who now haunt the neighborhoods.

    Compare Durocher’s article with the excerpt below from an article published in 1898 in the United States entitled ‘ The United States of Europe’.

    [To the writer’s credit he does decry this.]

    ‘The social formula of the future will be bitter protection of money interests, and local patriotism replaced by a ferocious individualism.’

    The United States of Europe (1898)

    “…you may be sure that the financiers will step forward and arrange among themselves an international understanding. The money centres once working in union, the governments will follow, then the people.

    Was it not the “capitalists” of our country that instigated the insurrection in Cuba?

    We will see a United States of Europe, united in finance, and many political questions which today appear without possible solution (because we insist on arguing on abstract ideas – patriotism, republicanism, “jingoism”) will be straightened out by financial necessities, as surely as the mountain snow melted by the sun runs by nature’s laws in the streams and rivers to the sea.

    This new “union of states” will have all the attributes of our own. Where there is an even greater mixing of peoples, Asia and Europe having each contributed its contingent, they will develop the same financial ferocity and their politics will be the politics of money. Battles will be fought out at the Stock Exchange.

    When Cleveland’s warlike message made American securities drop on the London markets, how we became suddenly pacific as by enchantment!

    The social formula of the future will be bitter protection of money interests, and local patriotism replaced by a ferocious individualism.”

    I am talking about our so-called ‘global cities’. These include such places as New York City, London, Paris, and, beyond the West, Singapore or Dubai. In some sense, we might consider the greater Bay Area in California surrounding Silicon Valley to be a kind of global city.

    That these cities are prosperous and multi-cultural, multi-racial is simple to understand, once the economics behind it are understood.

    1) Bank credit comes into being from nothing
    2) Bank credit must swim home to its twin, the debt instrument
    3) Debt instruments are attached to people, and then said debt is on-sold into markets.
    4) Markets became international.
    5) Banks networked their reserve loops e.g. Federal Reserve Act

    International money is already here in the form of interconnected banking corporations, where said corporations have figured out ways to allow their credit to find debts.

    Because there is little to no isolation in worldwide currency flows, then world zionist debt spreading system wants everything to be fungible. That means free movement of people and “capital.” Capital means plant and equipment as well as their form of bank credit as money.

    Capital then finds the lowest labor centers wherever it may be, including China, or Vietnam, or Mexico. Offshore labor then makes goods and services as prices, and then exports these goods back to the finance centers.

    Note that the finance centers don’t move. They are “international.” The finance centers instead, import workers from its international diaspora. This is the crux of Yellow vest movement in France, where finance cities (Paris) morph into something other than French, while French hinterlands are hollowed out as hinterland labor is displaced.

    Silicon valley is the recipient of international capital, and this capital then attracts people from around the world. Supposedly these people are the best and brightest.

    Anybody who is familiar with statistics knows that populations fit within a Gaussian distribution curve.

    There are enough talented American’s, so this notion of having to import people for their supposed skills does not meet the smell test.

    Also, this idea that money has to be international bank credit fails the smell test.

    Sovereign money circulates within a nations borders and is not “international” and hence the mechanism described above falls apart. The money begins to work for the nation’s people instead of Oligarchy and financial interests.

    The (((international))) scheme is toxic. Why? Because it causes national insecurity which leads to war or civilization collapse. Borders, Economic, and Cultural insecurity drive people to insanity, as the original population becomes deracinated and dispossessed in the lands of their forefathers.

    Meanwhile, the owned press and those who benefit from the (((international))) system emit hypnosis so our eyes won’t focus on the real source of disease.

    The only thing keeping London as populated as it is are most of the 250k to 300k of immigrants flowing into the UK each year.

    London being an instance of immigration being bought entirely to keep the existing elite in power after it has been rejected by the native base population. That really is what’s going on, and why immigrants are always favored by the national elite that imported them. Swing voting blocks are _always_ given higher per capita rewards from the ruling elite that they support, largely because swing voters are by definition not loyal and could switch sides, causing immense losses for the group they deserted.
    Immigrants are loyal, and so not swing voters? The Democrats are finding out that immigrants are not loyal. Right now, the immigrants in the US are (to switch to the language of “The Fisherman’s Wife”) asking to be Lord of the Sun and Moon, and the Democrats (unlike the fish in the fable) are promising to give that Lordship to the immigrants (Democratic debates, late 2019/06).

    Gun control, welfare, & surveillance, I tend to think.

    I think you are correct here.

    In the rural south of America, where Negros were forced to conform to rigid behaviors, said Negros did not step out too often.

    Due to low impulse control and lower forward time presence of this race, then EXTERNAL factors become important.

    These external factors are an omnipresent punishment regime, where if said negro(s) steps out of line, then retribution is quick and harsh. There also has to be on-going examples of retribution, like public stockades or hangings, to then create omnipresent fear, where said fear overcomes negro lack of self awareness and inability to project oneself into the future.

    Negros need to be segregated from whites and other “ice people” as they did not evolve along the same pathways.

    There is no data anywhere that supports immigration of negros being a net benefit, resulting in a high trust civilization.

    As I keep relentlessly pointing out, it is CAPITAL that wants to import labor, to then get the lowest price.

    For example, all of the slave ships were funded into being with (((international capital))) out of London and Wall Street. This then created an international business model, whereby negros were resourced in Africa, then transported to America. Slave ships then returned to Africa or Europe with a FULL cargo of hemp and timber and rum.

    It is all about that USURY, which I define as a power relation – the taking of something for nothing.

    In this case, our (((friends))) stole negro lives, then sold said negros for a profit to white farmers, and in the process screwed America’s future with a race of people that are too divergent to create a high trust civilization.

    That was tiny profits vectoring to a small group of the worst people in the past, which had large negative effects to the future, effects which are still redounding.

    New York city has reasonable racial relations because 1) A VERY heavy and aggressive police presence 2) most people are busy with work 3) no one group clearly dominates

    One thing I have noticed about the diverse global cities is just how many of the politicians and upper class fops who promote those cities are unwilling to actually live with diversity.

    Going by my own nation, their approach to immigration is to place the migration camps as far away from their homes as possible to limit any kind of negative impact on their lives. Its why you will find migrants dumped on the poorest sections in cities as those places are already beneath their contempt.

    Next its about the kind of immigration/diversity that they allow into their areas. A simple google maps search will reveal that every single upper class/elite tribal area is teaming with migrant type restaurants and specialty shops, but ghettos and Islamic sections are no-no as all of those places are located miles/kilometers away. Every section also have a fully functional police and army presence that is less than five minutes away and patrol cars going in circles 24/7 – 365 days a year.

    The next part is one rarely talked about and its the tendency of blatant hypocrisy when its comes to diverse learning environments. How many times have we seen talking elitist heads promote the downright shitty and utterly useless crap education in highly diverse school environments while ensuring that their kids attend insanely expensive private schools that comes with fully armed staff members, fences and highly selected contact with diverse population groups.

    The final part is the overriding contempt for non whites of any kind. Consider the paradox of Muslims who the elites treats like a holy tribe of innocents while funding and directing what is an ongoing holocaust in seven different nations across the world. Its takes a real mental case to state that starving children to death and launching hell fire missiles at weddings are humane acts of compassion.

    Honestly, I think the political right and conservatives in particular can learn something from communism. Namely that as long as you allow your political enemy to exist, he or she will be a problem to your agenda.

    Regarding the phenomena of ‘mass immigration’ and the ‘migrant’ that the article alludes to, it helps to look at 19th century chattel slavery and it’s trade as having been monetized rather than ‘abolished’.

    The ‘immigrant’, whether ‘skilled’ or more likely ‘unskilled’, is the slave for whatever period of time he or she is paid substantially below whatever the prevailing real time local rate of labor was without the immigration or the migrant being present. [In California circa 1875, regarding the Chinese being imported in, it was found by the state legislature that they were often being paid upwards of seventy percent, ie two thirds below, the local rate of labor.]

    This systematic theft of their labor is most efficiently and profitably taken directly from their ‘pay’, ie their wages, hence the term wage slavery as opposed to chattel slavery, which entails the burden of physically owning a person as property (ie chattel).

    With wage slavery (aka so called ‘cheap labor’) both the former would be slave dealer and slave purchaser/owner have outsourced just about every last negative (financial and physical) they had formerly had to bear regarding chattel slavery upon the general non-slavery participating public, a win-win situation for them. It’s lose-lose for the latter.

    The smug, self-satisfied, and self proclaimed ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive’ globalist, whether he or she is the owner of a large agri-business with their thousands of ‘migrants’ imported in to work the fields, or your next door neighbor ‘paying’ eight dollars an hour to a migrant (legal or illegal) to do a job that normally pays twenty, or a person which pushes the ‘mass immigration’ which they personally profit from in some way, are the very same types and sorts as those of the 19th century who owned the chattel slave worked plantations, or as a small house holder owned a few individual slaves, and, or, was a slave dealer.

    When slave owners/dealers monetized chattel slavery and it’s trade in the 19th century, they first (at best) had to lie to themselves that they had ‘abolished’ it, then they had to lie to you, the general non-slave holding/dealing public.

    All hasn’t been smooth sailing for the promotion of chattel slavery’s monetization and it’s accompanying wage slavery (so called ‘cheap labor’). Slavery, whether chattel or wage, due to the resulting ‘mixing’, is genocidal; it’s latter manifestation is even more so due to the huge numbers exploited.

    When in the mid to latter 19th century, the former would be slave dealer/owner sorts made an attempt to import literally tens of millions of Chinese wage slaves from China into the United States and Australia, people’s natural instinct against their own genocide kicked in and this effort was stopped. In the United States, after much struggle, there was the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, and in Australia the ‘Whites Only’ policy circa 1900.

    In the midst of this early 19th century ‘Great Replacement’ attempt, in 1874, the Pall Mall Gazette of London in an editorial entitled ‘Chinamen Out of China lauds the idea of the Chinese as ‘immigrants’, but laments there are problems, and specifically identifies ‘race’ as the primary impediment this scheme was running into.

    The slave dealers, however, had not willfully given up the lucrative chattel slave trade for the far greater riches they had planned to make from the so called ‘cheap labor’/mass immigration system and it’s wage slavery, only to have the entire thing blow up in their faces.

    They were not going to be denied their profits.

    It would be over a hundred years yet before they would develop the perfect ideological vehicle to make the world safe for ‘cheap labor’, or so they would think. They would give this ideological vehicle the name ‘Multi-Culturalism’.

    A powerful case could be made that the sole purpose of the cult/ideology of multi-culturalism has been to condition the people’s of the world to embrace their own physical, cultural, and economic destruction (simply the expected poisonous results of the ‘cheap labor’/mass immigration wage slavery system) as all somehow being good for them.

    To be sure, though, I think there’s more to it than that.

    San Francisco became a global city in 1849.

    The educated young stopped coming to California by 198o. The combination of high cost of living and affirmative action discrimination against even the most superbly qualified young Whites made it difficult for them to settle.

    I was born in 1942. I knew lots of well educated young American immigrants who made it in California. My middle aged children don’t know any American immigrants to California Our grandchildren don’t either. At least in the Bay Area the White population seems to be shrinking into descendants of the 19th and before 196o settlers.

    Here’s an excellent example of the destruction Durocher’s so called educated high value global elites did to a small area of Los Angeles.

    Developer Wiseman built one of those new buildings . 3/4 block long 4 stories 3 and 4 bedroom apartments It’s near UCLA and almost all tenants are students crowded 3 or 4 to a bedroom. Ok, that’s standard student housing.

    Place started to fill up first of July. Many of the UCLA students were straight from China.

    They brought bedbugs. By the middle of August the bedbugs infested all the buildings on that block, across the alley and across the street. About 3 square blocks including a nursing home

    My tenants didn’t complain at first because just a little bite. I was out of town managers didn’t call me. I got back in September and discovered the problem. I ended up spending about $70,000. I replaced carpets with good quality or what they claimed was good quality Lumber Liquidator. Of course had to put tenants in a hotel for 2 days while getting rid of carpet. Had Terminix madly spraying the old carpets dumpster and their apartments.

    A few tenants whined about pesticide being dangerous and bad for the environment but Thanks be to God no one sued. And every month the entire building, the back patio dumpsters and every apartment gets sprayed with whatever Terminx uses.

    A friend who lives 2 blocks west now has bedbugs. They must have found a way to migrate around. At least she’s a tenant not a landlord. Soon the bedbugs will be in Santa Monica

    This is an old neighborhood lots of 1920s and 30s apartments. I spoke with other landlords and people who lived here all their lives. Plus the health inspectors for the area.

    No bedbugs till Wiseman built that UCLA housing and the students arrived from China.

    Those are the elite Chinese who will contribute so much to America

    All they’ll do is get affirmative action medicine and tech jobs and preform those jobs no better than American DRs accountants engineers programmers researchers etc did before the 1965 immigration act.

    low impulse control and lower forward time presence of this race

    I don’t think it was worth for a slave to plan much ahead than just day to day.

But anyway,

    Negros need to be segregated from whites

    Something that intrigues me is when I read how many US blacks have white genes, and how many US whites have native Indian genes. This racial intermixing surely didn’t come during the more recent enlightened few decades, but during those periods of slavery and segregation. And in South Africa there is an entire race of those “coloureds” that presumably also originated from racial intermixing showing that racism and apartheid didn’t really work as it was supposed to. I agree with much of what the racists say in theory but then in practice these racial solutions don’t seem to have been very effective. I know, people will be people, and it’s hard not to be a hypocrite, and so on, just look at the religious types. Still I don’t know what to make of all this, and it makes me question those who advocate racism as a solution if their predecessors couldn’t do a good job of it. But I know, doing nothing and forcing hostile incompatible races into the same space is no solution either.

NYC is becoming an embarrassment to America. Trillions of dollars need to be spent to upgrade its infrastructure but, as usual, New York is broke. Where is the money going to come from? Moreover, one gets the impression that the city is so dedicated to finance, publishing, real estate, and entertainment that there is no engineering talent left. Do New Yorkers actually know how to DO anything, like the massive engineering projects that America used to be famous for? Manhattan itself is basically a monument to greed, and an ecological disaster waiting to happen. The island was never designed to house so many people.

    But at least in the ‘70s and ‘80s NYC was fun to visit (if you could tolerate piles of garbage). There was nothing like the 42nd Street anywhere else in America, with all the topless places, live intercourse on the stage, etc, plus the sex clubs in Times Square where for small amounts of money you could join an ongoing orgy. True, Sodom and Gomorrah, but I’m being nonjudgmental here. Now New York has become boring, and depressing in many ways with so many bookstores closed and shuttered store windows everywhere (direct proof that people are leaving). One reason I would never want to live in New York is the noise level.

    I don’t think it was worth for a slave to plan much ahead than just day to day. And a sustainable basic lifestyle of low population density in the tropics didn’t require any forward planning until development was introduced by westerners and the native population shot through the roof, so that their forward planning now seems to consist of getting out and not solving their problems and improving their home situation. But anyway,

    Commentator Mike, you are conflating two different things. Slavery and Race.

    Unz.com has a large section on HBD. I suggest that you study and learn. Forward planning, and abstract reasoning lacking in “tropical” races is a subject that gets much attention. In any blog you have to assume people have a basic level of understanding… sometimes there are newbies who are ignorant of certain realities.

    Our negro friends are “getting out and not solving their problems” because they are fleeing themselves and attaching to different kind of people (whites mostly). Chinese and Japanese do not allow themselves to be hoaxed, or are not suffering from delusions.

    Anybody who is honest and looks at data, will notice a pattern. Intelligent people notice patterns. In the modern world EVERYWHERE negroes go, their racial patterns follow. This pattern is independent of slavery or “environment” as the environment is varied.

    Go ahead and call me a racist. HBD aware people prefer the term race realist. That means we don’t lie to ourselves about the nature of reality, and we notice patterns. We notice that there are differences between the races and sexes, as evolution would predict.

    I’m going to say it again, to make it explicit. Capital wants to import low wage peoples, and Negros fit the bill. Or, any hominids from the global south fit the bill, as long as said hominids submit themselves to low wage conditions and can be trained for rudimentary labor. Either capital moves to global south areas, or these people types are moved to the north.

    White women shilling for importation of Muslims or Negros is yet another phenomenon, and is more likely a psycho-sexual mental disease.

    If you are a HBD aware person, then you must also pay attention to the money. Notice the patterns.

    Still I don’t know what to make of all this, and it makes me question those who advocate racism as a solution if their predecessors couldn’t do a good job of it. But I know, doing nothing and forcing hostile incompatible races into the same space is no solution either.

    Abraham Lincoln tried, and he might have been successful had he not been assassinated.

    Robert Morgan, a writer for the Institute for Historical Review, confirmed that, on Aug. 14, 1862, Lincoln invited free Black ministers to the White House to have a conversation. Lincoln did not hesitate to convince them of their inferiority when he candidly said the following: “You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffers very greatly, many of them, by living among us, while ours suffers from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated.”

    Please also note that black ministers REFUSED Lincoln, and wanted to stay in the U.S. even though their presence was obviously causing suffering. The same is true today, blacks will not leave – they know at some fundamental level they cannot live with themselves and require external control.

    Lincoln was issuing debt free GREENBACKS and this made him an enemy of our usurious (((friends))). History is clear on this, any president that goes up against the usurers comes to an untimely demise.

    What you are saying is true, the “racists” in the past failed, because they never realized they had a two front battle, and their main enemy was those who control the money. Any national problem can be solved once there is will and it is funded. Lincoln was one of the few men in history who was in a position to solve the race and money problem. (Hitler was another.)

    Blogs are filled with HBD commentary, or commentary noticing patterns about “global cities” but the root problem is really the money, and it gets little discussion.

    You cannot fix a problem unless you identify it first.

    NYC is becoming an embarrassment to America. Trillions of dollars need to be spent to upgrade its infrastructure but, as usual, New York is broke. Where is the money going to come from? Moreover, one gets the impression that the city is so dedicated to finance, publishing, real estate, and entertainment that there is no engineering talent left.

    Where do you think China got the money to build their infrastructure? They have state banks, and they simply conjured up the money from nothing.

    As long as you have labor and material, then money can be conjured to co-ordinate the conjoining of said labor and material.

    In the case of NYC to improve rail or infrastructure, you would issue zero interest loans, ideally from treasury or a state bank (U.S. doesn’t have state banks except for N. Dakota.)

    Then you would tax the improvement of said infrastructure. For example, those landowners who benefit by site value increase would be taxed to remove unearned income. The new money pumped into infrastructure would be be sucked out by georgist style taxes. The zero interest loan, would also be paid down by removing money from supply as it pays down loan principle. Payment of principle is captured in the from of user fees attached to new improved infrastructure.

    Where the money comes from is no problem. The real problem is that people and congress critters are monetarily illiterate, as they have been hoaxed and hypnotized into bad thinking. And yes, there is a vector for this purposeful hoaxing, and (((they))) have a name.

    Finance publishing and real estate is close to the truth, FIRE (finance, insurance, and real estate) sector works together to issue bank credit (which is about 97% of the money supply).

    Think of it like this, the money is issued improperly, and is of the wrong type. Further, the money cycles improperly, something like blood flow benefiting a tumor and not healthy tissue.

    The tumor is finance Oligarchy.

    FYI

    The Irish Catholics moved to the suburbs in the 40s and 50s. At one time Castro did have a fair number of Irish Catholics as did the rest of the town like 1880 to 1940

    I believe you mean the Mission district Irish who lived in that neighborhood until the 1930s when they moved to the Richmond

    You make these totally erroneous statements about towns and people you’ve never been in and except people who live in those towns and are the people you’re writing about to believe it.

    The first blatant gay presence in SF was north of the 1930s mission and Castro Irish neighborhoods . The gays settled along Ellis Hyde etc a few blocks west of downtown They settled there because the neighborhood consisted of studio and small one bedroom apartments with lots of bars where they could hook up for sex. Also north beach because it was an Italian neighborhood clots of bars and restaurants plus the famous Finicchio drag show

    Mission and Castro still don’t have that many bars. So it didn’t appeal to gays Ellis Hyde that neighborhood has a bar on every block and no single family homes just 6,7,8 story apartment buildings with small apartments. Castro didn’t have apartment buildings when the gays arrived late 1960s. single homes. When the families left in the 40s and 50s, the houses were rented to groups of students or young couples with younger than school age kids

    Never heard anyone in San Francisco refer to the Irish as micks

    I don’t know much about the White slums of Detroit in which you grew up. I don’t know much about the Detroit high school full of White prostitutes and drug addicts you claim to have attended but I sure know about San Francisco and Los Angels.

    I did know a hetero married man who raised his kids in the Castro. He talked about his neighborhood bar becoming a gay bar. He didn’t seem to care one way or the other.

    The main reason families left the Castro for the suburbs is that the neighborhood public high school also served Fillmore and the Haight. The blacks who arrived to work in the shipyards during the war settled in Fillmore and the Haight and caused problems in Polytechnic High school which was also the Castro district public high school.

But they’re being replaced because of the cost of housing. Have been replaced I should say. Thousands died in the AIDS epidemic. AIDS is a disease they created by their filthy sex practices.

    By 200o gays were on their way out to be replaced by even more insane politicians and interest groups.

    In a nutshell, yes. MILK is depicted as one of many gays who drifted aimlessly out San Francisco around 1970. Dan White in the film (And in real) was VERY Irish and VERY Catholic; we first meet him at Mass.

    Oddly enough, Sean Penn uses the word mick once when Dan White calls him a homo saying “I’m sure you would rather not be referred to as Micks”. Which is odd because half-Irish Sean Penn made his name playing rough hewn Irish louts in films like BAD BOYS and MYSTIC RIVER and COLORS.

    In all fairness to the accuracy of the film, MILK is depicted as a double-dealing liar who befriends White and then stabs him in the back. The crime is not depicted an act of homophobia but simply politics gone awry.

    RE: the larger article intent: The article attributes alleged characteristics of the globalized “big cities” to personal traits, when it is really the cumulative effect of decades of (neoliberal) central bank money printing.

    Central Banks don’t print money. If they did, it would be a good thing.

    Central Banks, like the FED are private corporations. These corporations operate with double entry mechanisms.

    For a double entry to emit bank credit it needs an offset. Usually a TBill or some other finance “asset” is attached to the ledger, so said ledger can emit bank credit.

    Mortgage Backed Securities were attached to the ledger with one of the rounds of QE, and this is euphemistically called, expanding the ledger.

    Central banks expand their ledgers, they do not print. New TBills come from Treasury. So, a debt instrument (TBill) is monetized by FED to expand the monetary base. Usually the FED acquires TBills through its member banks via their reserve loops.

    All of the FED QE spending was a SWAP operation, whereby new FED keyboard dollars were swapped for debts. The FED ledger expanded and private bank ledgers changed composition.

    Private bank ledgers had no difference in their reserves, only a composition change of less TBills and more Cash. Think of it like you shifting money from savings to checking account, your net position did not change.

    Virtually ALLLLLL BANK CREDIT comes into being when YOU got down to your local bank and hypothecate yourself. That means when YOU take out a loan.

    The FED and central banks are guarantors of reserves at the last moment, as private banks can find reserves at the discount window if they cannot find them from other private banks.

    The FED and central banks are the tail, not the dog. It is the overall private banking “networked” system which was purposefully brought into being by fraud, which is where your eyes should gaze.

    That’s right. The Jew has always used money power as an evolutionary construct benefiting the tribe. Going all the way back into time the Haibaru (Apiru) had donkey caravans where they moved goods about. This merchant class was always jealous of the city states, and wanted to tear down said civilizations.

    The Haibaru for thousands of years took rents on the exchange difference between silver and gold. They drained silver from the west, and drained gold from the east.

    Even Mecca and Islam cannot be divorced from Jewish bad behavior, as Mecca was an entrepot city on the trade routes. Our Jewish friends had locked down the trade, and Mohammed was a jealous merchant.

    Consider also that entrepot cities were lawless, and in those days psychopaths and the violent were expelled from city states as punishment. These psychopaths would merge with the “tribe.”

    Why do you think cabalistic satanic rituals find so much currency with the tribe, as they are “crime inc. and always have been.”

    In Greek mythology the God Hermes is the god of merchants. This god of merchants is also a sneaky bastard, working for his own good at the detriment of others.

    A sovereign money system, and a constitutional kingdom has the civilizational gonads to stand up to the Jew and his wicked evolutionary methods.

    A democracy is weak, and is easily subverted.

    I have never denied racial differences and it doesn’t bother me one bit if someone is a racist, racial realist or not, but in that comment I was pointing at other factors which can be as influential as genetics on behaviour, such as environment and external effects. I already mentioned in #73

    “When Jamaica gained independence in 1962, the murder rate was 3.9 per 100,000 inhabitants, one of the lowest in the world. In 2005, Jamaica had 1,674 murders for a murder rate of 58 per 100,000 people. That year, Jamaica had the highest murder rate in the world.”

    So those were the very same blacks yet in 40 years they went from being the least murderous to the most murderous people on earth. Now how does genetics explain that? And even the most civilised and peaceful of whites when they get thrown into a war situation can behave as the most vicious, brutal, and violent torturers and murderers yet their genetics does not change. There’s more to it than some of those HBD theorists bother to explain.

    The question is, to what extent does US wealth (such as it is) derive from having the reserve currency? The US is a continental great power, and has the material resources and human capital of a continent to work with. It seems to me that any depression in America has more to do with how the internal wealth is distributed, than any change in how much the country earns through trade. But I am ready to learn from anyone who has actual numbers.

    Also, I would point out a recent article by Pepe Escobar, on what happens if Iran shuts down oil exports throughout the Gulf. Escobar makes an outlandish-sounding claim that this would destroy the American economy, because there is a tower of financial-derivative funny money that relies on the price of oil not soaring to $300 or $1000 per barrel.

    I don’t believe that the collapse of the world of derivatives needs to produce a depression, again for the reason that the underlying material wealth would still be there – it might just change ownership, and there might need to be centralized steps (like the much-maligned trillion-dollar cheque that the US government wrote itself in 2008) in order to maintain cashflow to actually productive businesses. My principle is that if a financial collapse produces a depression, it’s because the people who were living like kings back when times were good, insist on continuing to live like kings (e.g. having their investments grow in value, at the rate to which they are accustomed) even when times are bad, and use that their political leverage to ensure that all remaining profit still gets directed to them. Indeed, I suspect that something like that is what actually happened after 2008…

    Instead I want to focus on the other aspect of Escobar’s scenario, a serious and prolonged interruption to the flow of oil in the world, for two reasons. First, this is a problem at the material level and not just the financial level. Second, US wealth and power is often said to rest upon the “petrodollar”; in the era of floating currencies, the US dollar is said to be backed by oil (‘black gold’) rather than by gold; and so on.

    Now I think that the value of a floating currency really depends on all national assets, so for the US that means much more than oil, or the fact that most oil sales globally are denominated in USD, or even the fact that the US is the military hegemon in the main oil-producing region of the world. But in any case, let me reflect a little on the consequences of a shutdown in Middle Eastern oil exports.

    It’s said that this would touch the US less than the naive might think. First, I don’t think the US ever got most of its oil from the Middle East. First it came from within America, then maybe from closer countries like Venezuela, and now the US has “energy independence” again thanks to fracking (though I wonder how long that can be sustained). The significance of US hegemony in the Middle East, was that it had the upper hand in the world capitalist economy, and also (through its navy) became the guarantor of security for Middle East oil as it was shipped to industrializing East Asia.

    So maybe the real question is, what would be the loss to America if it lost its role in the economy of the eastern hemisphere? But that role has already been changing and slipping away. Other navies (Japan, India) are now also providing security for the Indo-Pacific sea lanes. The economic role of the eastern hemisphere now seems to be, China makes cheap stuff for American consumers, which is paid for by US government IOUs (“Treasuries”), and, American companies take advantage of global supply chains.

    I guess my feeling is that if the petrodollar ceased to be, and even if the Middle East became part of the “Eurasian” bloc, the US would still be an economic powerhouse. The terms of trade with China would change, the supply chains would have to alter, the preferred energy suppliers might hardly change at all. Indeed, I feel like I am describing the present, and what’s happening under Trump.

    The remaining question in this “analysis” (really amateur guesswork) is still, what would America lose (and gain!) by shedding its empire. Does it actually extract that much economic value by being the oil hegemon? I suppose again we can look at history. The Carter doctrine of ensuring that the oil keeps flowing, came about precisely because of the 1970s stagflation produced by the Arab oil boycott. By working with OPEC, controlling the oil price became instead another economic tool, akin to central bank interest rates, used to manage the world economy. If the US sheds that part of its empire, it would hand over that economic lever to some other force. On the other side, potentially the plus side of the ledger, it might be able to reduce its military budget, if it’s not sending expeditionary forces and maintaining garrisons on the other side of the world… I’m not at all sure how the numbers would stack up.

    The remaining question in this “analysis” (really amateur guesswork) is still, what would America lose (and gain!) by shedding its empire.

    Think of economy as something like your body. By shedding empire, the U.S. reroutes its energy and capability internally. Since the U.S. is a continental country capable of autarky, it does not need empire.

    Empire is a function of “growth” inherent in the money system. Debt instruments make claims on the earth and people, and these claims have an exponential function at their base. People run around converting the earth to satisfy debts. Forests are trees to become board feet of wood, to become prices, to fetch money, to pay debts. The money is bank credit fetched to pay its counter debt.

    Does it actually extract that much economic value by being the oil hegemon?

    The economic value channels to the finance sector and its hirelings. Main Street U.S. A does not benefit, and instead suffers.

    Example: Industry left the shores of U.S. and went to China. Why? Wall Street in many cases coerced captains of industry to leave U.S., this to get wage arbitrage. Green mail was a technique used, whereby new bank credit was hypothecated into existence to then fund take over of companies if they didn’t leave.

    Think on it carefully, “how is it that losing your industry is good for a country?”

    The other problem with reserve currency is Triffin’s dilemma. A sovereign country that is reserve is not really sovereign, it is beholden to the international banks. Any stimulation of U.S. economy with deficit spending, soon leaks purchasing power internationally. The sovereign has no way of targeting purchasing power to get an output.

    Public debt in the U.S. is related to Triffin’s dillema and the need to supply the world with reserve dollars.

    It actually is stupid to be a reserve currency. International trade can be done with gold flows, or with a bancor system, or even a basket of currencies where everybody shares the burden.

    Why do you think Zionist Jews like Dexter White hoaxed america into being reserve currency rather than going with Keynes bancor?

    When it comes to money especially, never let a Jew have control or make decisions. The history on this is more than clear….

    What makes you think the truckers would stop deliveries of food???

    If the military attacks civilians or tries mass gun confiscation.

    What makes you think the national guard would fail to keep the freeways and roads open?

    The same National Guard reduced to handing out water bottles and changing diapers for invading armies?

    And what makes you think the sturdy Anglo Saxon yoemen would travel to the cities and block the trucks?

    No need to block trucks that aren’t delivering.

    Large cities are vulnerable in dozens of ways, and large populations of non-White, non-Asians will make chaos there that much worse.

    The 1962 black murder rate in the US was a lot lower too. You can pick and choose a country here and there but the overall picture is usually the same. Internationally black countries are near the top of the list, surpassed only by Latin American countries. In the US where we have people from all over the world living under the same laws, blacks are the undisputed kings of homicide.

    That was a confluence of the crack epidemic, the complete open-air corruption of the mafia and the days before Three Strikes Laws.

    In the film BAD BOYS, which I keep bringing up because it represented the days before teens were tried as adults, the Jewish arsonist who shares the room with the Irish-American stickup kid played by Penn has already killed three people and rigs a radio to kill a fourth while in the youth prison. He’ll be out by the time he is 21. The most the warden can do is tell him that he will spend the remainder of his time in the program in solitary confinement. These days Horowitz and O’Brien and Lafgren and Paco Moreno would all be sixteen and doing life in the state pen.

    Also, as you say, the police became far more militarized.

    There is a reason why the US has the largest number of prisoners in the world. Criminals are locked up and stay locked up for decades.

    There are other supposed factors. The scruffy white ethnics all moved to the suburbs from places like Bensonhurst. These days, Italian or Jewish kids who might have been troublemakers in 1989 are all suburban kids glued to their cellphones.

    It should be stated that the killers of that era with the highest number of victims were generally not African-American. They were Jewish-American (Joel Rifkin) or Irish-American (Whitey Bulger) or German-American (Dahmer) or Polish-American (John Wayne Gacy). And these days it is much harder to be a serial killer or mobster. You’ll be caught. Cameras, cell phones, social media “Hi, please help, Jeffrey is trying to eat me” while RICO and the FBI have more or less destroyed the mafia.

    Even drug dealing has changed. People’s doctors are their drug dealers today. Why drive into Alphabet City to score heroin when you can get your pills from your doctor? Gone are the crack houses of yesteryear.

    Crack and AIDS actually wiped out many criminals in the nineties.

    It would seem the more religious people are, the more backward and prone to violence they are.

    Muslim extremism in France to violence and squalor in the Bible Belt US to Catholic countries like Italy and South America.

    The odd thing about India was that the people who benefited the most from the caste system-Brahmin-were more or less agnostic and it was the poor low-caste Hindus who were more likely to be Hindutvas.

    Countries in Northwest Europe like Finland or Northeast Asia like Japan are the least religious places on earth and yet violence and crime is low there.

    Why would y0u listen to a jewess? Are you nuts?

    Ayn Rand’s philosophy, and libertarianism, has gross contradictions at its core.

    Free movement of people and capital is at the core of today’s problems. I expound on it earlier in this thread, go back and read.

    There is no such thing as free markets, and further money’s true nature is law, not metal. It took man thousands of years to figure that one out, and lolbertarians would have us go backwards. Why? They want to control the emission of money, to hold the money power.

    Why? Because the original Austrians were all Jews. When they moved to America they found succor with credit emitting banking elites, such as Rockefeller. Rockefeller in turn was an agent for Rothschild.

    Rand and libertarian philosophy is especially dangerous, because it ensnares young idealists in cul-de-sacs of bad thought.

    It takes much more effort to de-program somebody than to initially program them.

    I get that libertarians don’t want government, especially if it is over-bearing, but here is the deal: THERE IS ALWAYS HIERARCHY!

    Do you want a Jew run hierarchy where social media companies can infringe on your freedom because of muh free market? Or, do you want a Jew run hierarchy where government is communist.

    Behind randian hypnosis is that markets are god and things will self regulate, and law of the jungle will work out just fine. Only our friendly ((in-group)), will work collectively and screw over white individualism.

    True. Libertarian philosophy was heavily promoted to the goyim in order to make them politically powerless (“all governments are bad – and not worth fighting for”) slaves to the corporations (“all businesses are good – and not worth policing”).

    The Pall Mall Gazette of London editorial entitled ‘Chinamen Out of China’ from Spring, 1874, is excepted and linked below. Something they don’t tell people on that old 1970’s TV series Kung Fu is from the mid to latter 19th century they were attempting to literally import a hoped for tens of millions of Chinese as wage slaves (ie so called ‘cheap labor’) into both the United States and Australia.

    The editorial was all for this ‘mass immigration’ but noted they were running into a serious problem involving race when attempting to implement this plan globally…ie people were resisting being genocided by being ‘mixed’ out of existance.

    The historic slave dealers of the Anglosphere countries, ie powerful elements of the elites of the Anglo-Saxon and Jewish people’s and their respective hangers on, were not happy about this.

    This pure greed is the profound ‘morality’ actually driving the ‘anti-race’ campaign, aka ‘anti-racism’, whether spouted by ‘left’ or ‘right’, or within the dialectic forming multi-culturalism by a senior Capitalism and or by its junior partner Communism.

    These plans ultimately fell through in the 19th century but not for lack of trying on the part of those pushing it.

    ‘A dread of what might happen if capitalists could command and control these vast hordes of workmen as against men of their own race has made the labouring class, at any rate, blind to their good qualities.’

    And even the most ignorant of those who among they come have a hazy notion that there are 400,000,000 or more similar strange looking people tightly packed at home and ready enough to seek their fortune elsewhere. The storehouse of labour seems practically inexhaustible. A dread of what might happen if capitalists could command and control these vast hordes of workmen as against men of their own race has made the labouring class, at any rate, blind to their good qualities. The Americans, for instance, were fain to admit that the Chinese came out grandly in the construction of the Pacific Railway. But this has no wise abated the sullen hostility with which they are regarded in California, and it needs but little to stir up this enimity to take a much more active shape than that of mere petitions to Congress.

    Black violent criminality is hideously disproportionate to the devastation of blacks and those in their vicinity. Anybody who denies this is either Jew or some other type of hater of whites, i.e., shabby goy, golem mentally enslaved to Jews.

    To preserve civilization before it’s too late, effective measures must be instituted very soon.

  191. @MEFOBILLS

    Only TRUTH can take civilization forward.

    We must disregard those who hate truth, the children of the father of lies (John 8:44) and their golem who serve them as shabby-goyim, so we can benefit mankind including blacks.

    These are truths:

    There are no successful black run manufacturing economies.

    There is a straw-man in your argument. Whites are violent if pushed to extremes. Ergo, black hair- trigger violence is sanctioned because er… whites can be violent under dissimilar circumstances.

    Don’t be that dupe who is in denial of basic facts of reality. The fact that you are even on this site indicates you have some curiosity. It is brave to commit crime-think, especially when you have been programmed with false narrative.

    We can not…

    …turn a blind eye to the rapes and murders and general mayhem their (BLACKS) presence causes; not to mention the low trust police state that inevitably must be created as a consequence of mayhem.

  192. @MEFOBILLS

    Jews have duped blacks so severely that blacks fail to recognize that whites have been the most beneficial outsiders to their black ethnic group. (Note the complete absence of Jews and Muslims from the abolitionist movement.)

    Kevin MacDonald is right on the money as always with his recent tweet on the topic of whites as best helpers of blacks:

    Here’s a well meaning challenge to blacks born of good intentions toward blacks:

    The same is true today, blacks will not leave – they know at some fundamental level they cannot live with themselves and require external control.

    This must be recognized for the truth it is:

    What you are saying is true, the “racists” in the past failed, because they never realized they had a two front battle, and their main enemy was those who control the money. Any national problem can be solved once there is will and it is funded.

  193. @MEFOBILLS

    Truth Jews have vilified to the devastation of blacks and those around them:

    In the rural south of America, where Negros were forced to conform to rigid behaviors, said Negros did not step out too often.

    Due to low impulse control and lower forward time presence of this race, then EXTERNAL factors become important.

    These external factors are an omnipresent punishment regime, where if said negro(s) steps out of line, then retribution is quick and harsh. There also has to be on-going examples of retribution, like public stockades or hangings, to then create omnipresent fear, where said fear overcomes negro lack of self awareness and inability to project oneself into the future.

    There is a segment of the economy/society which is an exception to this, but it is because the rules are embraced by blacks, enforced by authorities, and white training, mentoring has been sought by blacks rather than rebelled against by blacks:

    There is no data anywhere that supports immigration of negros being a net benefit, resulting in a high trust civilization.

    Important emphasis: whites don’t generally exploit blacks; Jews and their shabby goyim exploit blacks as their golem warriors against whites while whites treat blacks better than any outside ethnic group does.

    As I keep relentlessly pointing out, it is CAPITAL that wants to import labor, to then get the lowest price.

    For example, all of the slave ships were funded into being with (((international capital))) out of London and Wall Street. This then created an international business model, whereby negros were resourced in Africa, then transported to America. Slave ships then returned to Africa or Europe with a FULL cargo of hemp and timber and rum.

    It is all about that USURY, which I define as a power relation – the taking of something for nothing.

    In this case, our (((friends))) stole negro lives, then sold said negros for a profit to white farmers, and in the process screwed America’s future with a race of people that are too divergent to create a high trust civilization.

    That was tiny profits vectoring to a small group of the worst people in the past, which had large negative effects to the future, effects which are still redounding.

    Look at it this way for the Zio elites, the incoming immigrants mean that no NS Germany type revolt is ever possible now. If the native proles revolt then just set the immigrants lowlifes on them. Both parties will batter each other while the Zio elites watch and laugh at the mayhem from their expensive condos heavily guarded by police. Thus these low IQ barbaric brown black migrants are guards of the Zio elites and not surprisingly it is the Zio elite center like London and Paris is where most of the migrants are brought and housed. The Jews remember with fear those European peasant armies armed with pitch folk and torches, who tired of Jewish bloodsucking would march to the Jewish quarters, to take revenge. Or some angry Cossack army. “If only our medieval ancestors had blacks and brown low IQ thug guards surrounding the Jewish quarters to protect us from the White goyim peasant armies”, shouts the Jews.
    You can see this ‘European peasant army’ theme in Hollywood movies like Hotel Transylvania. The Jews of Hollywood are just expressing some of their most dark fears of the past in the experience of the Dracula family of that movie.
    The parasitic Zio elites (as well as the migrants) have no emotional bonds with places like England, Netherlands, Sweden or France. For them they are fiefdoms with goyim cows to be milked. They move from host to host, destroying places as they go. Why do you see so many civilization ruins in the Middle East & North Africa. All this has been done before, in Babylon, Persia, Egypt etc…. Greece and Rome and Byzantium fell too but fortunately the Northern barbarians took up the continuation of those civilizations further, to the ire of the Jews.
    Sometimes I wonder if the high number of blacks in Washington DC are there for a purpose, they are there to guard the elites should some White peasant army comes there to revolt.

    Except that a lot of the Muslims are violently anti-semitic. In the general, Muslims would rather attack Jews than White gentiles. It’s Gentile soldiers, cops, and govt who protect Euro Jews from Muslim migrants. If not for Gentile muscle, Euro Jews would be so screwed.

    Jews may think they can keept European Gentiles and Muslims at each other’s throats, but that strategy may not work forever. Especially once Muslims become a large enough percentage of the population, they may decide to go on the war path against Jews.

    And that is good for the Jew too. The Muslim hordes will never get their hands on top Jews like Rothschilds and Goldsmiths. Trust me, that would bring the entire State power against them. The muslim hordes will get the little Jews which will mean more little Jews will make Aliya to israel. Just see what happened after the false flag attacks in France, number of Jews running to Israel has increased. israel wants all the Jews it can get it her war against the Palestinians.
    Besides, many israelis are tired of living in a shitty Israel with low pay and expensive real estate and becoming more Talmudic by the day as Rabbis gain more and more political power. Most Israeli youth are still very liberal and many want to move away to Germany of all places. The Jew elites do not want that. Once Europe becomes an Islamic hellhole no small Jew would want to leave Israel and go there. And Israel will continue to become more Rabbanical and Talmudic with time as more right winged parties become stronger and the population of right wingers grow as they are more fecund.
    So muslim horde infiltration into Europe would lead to these facts
    1] Destruction of Europe via miscegenation and civil War. Europeans too busy an dfull of hate to care about the Middle East.
    2] Possible further depopulation of the Middle East as more of them could be pushed into Europe

    This is how they think. And because it’s superficially sophisticated the gullible have been impressed. In spite of the fact that, though superficially sophisticated, it is profoundly twisted and perverse.

    That’s why the intelligence they claim to possess and constantly brag about is, as far as one can tell, limited almost entirely to infiltration, subversion and destruction.

    For the most part, historically speaking, they’ve been good at hiding and we haven’t been all that good at looking – or doing enough about it when we were looking.

    But nobody anticipated the Internet. Least of all them. Hence the hysteria added to their already world famous persecution mania, which itself is another aspect of their magical thinking.
