[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

The only way to get rid of a temptation, said Oscar Wilde, is to yield to it. I shall therefore begin with some ruminations on the year that has gone. Then I shall turn and speculate about the year that is arriving. As Robert Burns told the mouse:

Och! I backward cast my e’e,
On prospects drear!

The year 2021 certainly provided Prospects Drear for us to gaze upon. All too many, in fact. I’ll pick a handful:

  • Covid

As I’ve made abundantly clear, I am in an advanced state of Covid fatigue. I’m sick of hearing about the damn thing. Let’s make proper provision for those most vulnerable—elderly citizens, mainly—and get on with our lives.

There’s a special place in Hell for those who have used Covid to destroy the structure of our children’s lives by shutting down schools. Children need that structure for proper socialization. Parents need it, too, to give them time to do adult things while professionals mind their kids.

(No offense intended to home-schoolers, who I know pay attention to socialization with playgroups, sport teams and such. They have way more free time than the average, though, if they’re doing the job properly. Looking back at my own kids’ childhood, I don’t see how we could have managed it).

And maximum offense intended to the Teachers’ Unions, whose leaders should be tossed into pits of boiling oil for pushing this scam.

  • Afghanistan

What a fiasco! After dithering about futilely for twenty years—twenty years!—and spending north of two trillion dollars, we just dumped all our stuff—tens of billions of dollars’ worth—and left.

I don’t hold any exaggerated opinion of my own geostrategic insight; but even I could see what a monstrous waste of lives and money that always was. I’ve been saying so here at Radio Derb for most of those twenty years.

Who’s to blame for this catastrophe? Our military Chiefs, mostly. Sure, I know, they’re under civilian command. And yes, I know: the George W. Bush administration was full of neocon war hawks who thought they could make the world a nice place by dropping bombs all over.

The Chiefs were fine with it, though. If you’re senior military, war is good for your career prospects. Dubya was too dumb to resist. Then we had Obama and Trump, neither of whom is dumb. The problem was, both of them are sufficiently self-aware to realize that they don’t know diddly about military stuff, so they deferred to the generals.

It’s now plain to all of us, I think, that our most senior military people are all fools and lunatics.

There are two things we could do about this:

  1. we could cashier the lot of them; or
  2. we could wait for our next confrontation with a serious military power, and the disaster that will surely follow.

I’d vote for option one myself. But I feel sure we shall in fact go through Door Two.

  • Critical Race Theory

Yes, this was the year that we all found out about Critical Race Theory, and about how our Ruling Class has been quietly enforcing it on our schools, colleges, corporations, and government departments.

What actually is Critical Race Theory? What it actually is the terminus of the Race Denialism bus.

Race differences in social outcomes are plain to the naked eye. Your local college Computer Science department is full of East Asians; your local jail is full of blacks, and so on. What explains this?

Until about sixty years ago, everyone assumed it was just biology, of the kind that shows up when you breed dogs or farm animals. Then our elites declared biology out of bounds. That meant they had to come up with an alternative explanation for group differences. They came up with Culturism: It was nothing to do with biology, it was Culture. We’re all the same! Just get the Culture right, anyone can be Einstein!

That was halfway plausible for a while; but as decades passed, the plausibility drained away. The statistics were stubborn. Black kids from stable middle-class homes continued to perform less well than white and Asian kids from same. (That even has a name: the Shaker Heights Effect [Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb: A Study of Academic Disengagement, by Jerlando F. L. Jackson, Journal of College Student Development, January 2003] Affluent young blacks went on being incarcerated at higher rates than poor white kids [Data Shows Affluent Black Kids Are More Likely to Be Incarcerated Than Poor White Kids, EJI.org, April 29, 2016].

And while every social reform anyone could think of was failing to shift the differences, news was seeping in from advances in the human sciences, especially genetics, and the news was all race-realist.

So Culturism got a makeover. It got Marx-ified. It wasn’t Culture; it wasn’t that differences in outcome arose from people over here living like this because of history and tradition, while people over there, of equal moral standing, lived like that. It was that one group of people—bad, bad people—were maliciously oppressing another group of good, good people. Moral inferiors were oppressing their moral superiors!

Good old 1980s Culturism will get you canceled nowadays; you could ask Professor Larry Mead about that.

  • Politicized justice

2021 was a great year for show trials—a pretty clear milestone in the politicization of our justice system. Verdicts in our criminal courts nowadays arise less from what you did, more from who you are, who you did it to, and whether you have bad thoughts. We are well on the way to Leninist jurisprudence: Who? Whom?

ORDER IT NOW

So Derek Chauvin, who restrained a juiced-up career criminal twice his size while waiting for medical assistance, got decades in prison after guys with thick necks from the state Attorney General’s office called on the county Medical Examiner and told him he had a nice little career there, be a shame if anything happened to it [The controversial autopsy at the heart of the Chauvin trial, explained, by Rachel Ramirez and Fabiola Cineas, Vox.com, April 9, 2021]

Later in the year we got the show trial in Georgia, where an attempted citizens’ arrest of a highly suspicious lowlife turned fatal when the arrestee tried to wrestle one citizen’s gun away.

Then at year’s end came the show trial and conviction of that lady cop in Minnesota who pulled her pistol thinking it was her taser.

All this on top of the apparently indefinite detention without trial of the January 6th protestors—and the new turn-’em-loose rules for shoplifters and muggers.

I don’t know that America’s justice system was ever the envy of the world. But today it’s just a political instrument. We could save on salaries by firing all the District Attorneys, prosecutors and judges and replacing them with guest workers from North Korea.

An’ forward tho’ I canna see, I guess an’ fear! What are my guesses for 2022, and what do I fear?

  • November Midterms.

Along with everyone else. I’m guessing that the GOP/ GAP will do well in the November 2022 midterms, even in the teeth of all-out Regime Media support for Democrats and their manipulation of voting systems.

And along with all other National Conservatives, I fear that, having done well, the elected Republicans will relax back into their donors’ soft, warm embraces and do nothing much of what so badly needs doing:

  • an Immigration Moratorium;
  • nationwide compulsory E-Verify with serious penalties for offending employers;
  • proper border defenses;
  • an end to Birthright Citizenship;
  • Repatriation of key industries;
  • withdrawal from NATO and the U.N.;
  • Much stricter voting rules for federal elections;
  • an end to federal support for the higher-education racket;
  • no confirmation for communist federal judges;
  • and so on.

What will they do instead? Just what they did the first two years of the Trump presidency: tweaks of the tax system, empty noise about defunding Obamacare, pressure for more foreign wars, and … [snoring sounds].

That’s my fear.

  • Long Covid hysteria

Can the Ruling Class keep up the Covid hysteria for another year?

My guess—and also my fear—is, they can.

Viral infections come with this nifty feature that every few months there’s a new variant. Where human suffering is concerned, it may not amount to much, as we’ve seen with the Omicron thing; but with the Regime Media, the CDC, and Big Pharma all screeching in the public ear, the hysteria has another year of life in it yet, I’m sure. Pushback is building, but too slowly to win the game in 2022.

I spotted an encouraging example this week on Twitter: a letter to parents from a school only identified on the tweet as CCCA. I believe the school is in Alexandria, Virginia. Wherever it is, the school authorities are bucking the hysteria. Money quote from the letter, quote:

Maximalist measures intended to prevent transmission of COVID may or may not have been effective toward their stated end, but they have unquestionably wreaked havoc across our society.

Home run!

  • The Culture Wars

I just said that Critical Race Theory is “the terminus of the Race Denialism bus.” I think that’s true and I hope it’s true. The parent revolts against school boards pushing this poison on kids was one of the most encouraging things to happen in 2021.

My fear is that this may be wrong; that just promoting CRT as the smart and cool ideology may not be the endpoint, that we may advance to legalizing Jim Snow.

This has already happened to a degree. The U.S. justice system is now quite brazenly Antiwhite, as last year’s show trials illustrate, as also does the absence of any kind of trial for Ashli Babbitt’s black killer.

Likewise the Regime Media: they won’t let us forget Emmett Till from 66 years ago, but they have memory-holed the Waukesha massacre from six weeks ago.

Formal Antiwhite discrimination, a.k.a. “Affirmative Action” has been the judge-made law of the land for half a century. Earlier this year Joe Biden’s \$1.9 trillion Covid stimulus bill set aside \$4 billion in debt relief explicitly and exclusively for black farmers. Academic testing is under attack all over because whites and Asians score too well.

So how far away are we from formal, legalized, institutionalized Jim Snow—separate drinking fountains for example?

I guess—and I fear.

    There really cannot be any “Jim Snow” because in order for the negro to exist at any level above the primordial he has to inflict himself on whites. Give Harvard, endowment and all, to negroes and it will lose its cachet and, whatever genuine academics on the faculty remain, would soon be purged or resign.

    In the corporate world the ability to retain economic deadwood in the form of massive HR and diversity and PR departments has been underwritten by Fed QE and Zirp policies that has kept zombie companies alive. In a world of 5-6 or 7% inflation they aren’t going to survive.

    We are already at the outer limit of the indulgences and expenses our society can afford to sustain the negro. Its all downward from here and there is no way to really stop it. As Herb Stein said, that which can’t continue will end.

    True.

    Then again, if they wait til they go hungry they won’t have the time or energy to even organize, let alone fight back. Not that the hostile elite will let them do either.

  5. My concern for the 2022 election is that the whole citizen politician project is going to turn into a dismal project of ineptness, celebrity cult fanfare, and more anti-racism, anti-racism, anti-racism. We want people that will represent us and connect to our communities and work for them.

    I think Jim Snow will be institutionalized and established due to non-whites protesting the “racist” and micro-aggressive white culture and the hegemony of whiteness in America’s institutions, which can never be rid of it until this whole country is burned to the ground.

    After a while the colored people might give us a good enough reason or basis to take back our country or at the least have a homeland of our own in America. Our enemy might serve our purposes without us working against them, so we need to deal with the real issues through the law, handle our business, and try our best to remain among our own.

  6. They want you worrying about race instead of worrying about what you should be worrying about, money. So keep it up. How does it feel to have the full weight of the government, secret services, wall street, the media, all secretly on your side (whether racist or anti-racist, they love it all), all secretly egging you on?

    The practical man, the yeoman, and the poor white all will have the last say. Our elites rationalize too much because they have the luxury for such.

    We need a plan, which the elite help plot out, an objective, something which should contend with issues of the common white masses, and then action which is usually the hardest point because its the break with controlling the situation in our own mind and the reducing of ourselves to brute reality.

    I think America will be worse than South Africa, because the establishment will hold up the view that everything is good, when things are very bad out there, or just a flat refusal of the situation. People know SA is bad but they will never say it is bad in America as we are being swept into labor and detention/reeducation camps or God spare us concentration camps.

    They are the ones setting up the web and making it look like its good sense, but in reality they are really advocating for chaos and the complete unravelling of the goy and getting them to bite into liberalism by making it look more conservative. Its going on right now. Trump basically sold himself out to Israel and allowed them to project themselves upon our politics and ideological core.

    Critical race theory is where I go to school for engineering, then to get a degree in business management, study the oldest industry in the US (forest products) for improvements in high value products, use the schools Purdue NDFCU Corporation for Science and Technology, partner with a heavy machine builder, build and debug the prototype (a \$100k machine)……and then find a unified wall of banks and VC that won’t touch any traditional industry improvement.

    I’m the person who should be building tomorrows advanced industry….but the US money system is totally aligned against real entrepreneurs….capital formation is a joke if not outright lies.

    Only a few computer products get funding because the money people don’t want new business to form (instead they want more bankruptcy where they can strip the assets).

    The US is in deep trouble. No entrepreneur could have prepared better than I did. I’ve spent 35 years and conclude…..not only I failed but the US is failing it’s next generations, handing them huge debt and yet, no new job formation in most traditional industry. It’s not for lack of trying….but the entire financial system is against us.

    Who Won in Afghanistan? Private Contractors
    The U.S. military spent \$14 trillion during two decades of war; those who benefited range from major manufacturers to entrepreneurs

    By Dion Nissenbaum, Jessica Donati and Alan Cullison

    …A California businessman [Doug Edelman] running a bar in Kyrgyzstan started a fuel business that brought in billions in revenue. A young Afghan translator transformed a deal to provide forces with bed sheets into a business empire including a TV station and a domestic airline.

    Two Army National Guardsmen from Ohio started a small business providing the military with Afghan interpreters that grew to become one of the Army’s top contractors. It collected nearly \$4 billion in federal contracts, according to publicly available records.

    … Mission Essential got its start in 2003 after two Army National Guardsmen, Chad Monnin and Greg Miller, commiserated in an Arabic language class over what they considered the poor quality of interpreters used by the military, and wanted to do better.

    In 2007 it won a five-year, \$300 million contract to provide the Army with interpreters and cultural advisers in Afghanistan…

    By the end of 2010, Mission Essential said it employed nearly 7,000 linguists working with the U.S. military in Afghanistan. It made more than \$860 million in revenue from the Defense Department in 2012…

    Imagine reading this article if you’re one of those many 20-something “war fighters” who was emasculated by an IED? And the only thing dissuading you from eating a bullet is that generous VA disability check and that defense contractor sinecure job. Thank you for your service! 🇺🇸

  16. John Derbyshire forgot about the show trial in Charlottesville over Unite the Right, in which the most powerful law firm in NYC (backed by Soros money) set about taking out a group of folks a couple of whom could not afford legal representation and so were forced to represent themselves.

    This was more about powerful leftist lawfare against indigent “right-wing extremists” than race as such, though it was easy for Regime Media to label the latter “white supremacists” as well. The defendants in Sines v Kessler clearly weren’t “supreme” over anything.

  17. Exile says:

    Children need that structure for proper socialization. Parents need it, too, to give them time to do adult things while professionals mind their kids.

    “Experts must raise your children” is one of the most short-sighted, anti-conservative and anti-family things I’ve heard from a professed paleo-conservative in a long time.

    What is more “adult” than spending time to raise your own children?

    The Amish disagree with Derb’s too-busy-to-parent bugman lifestyle.

    They retain over 80% of their children in a lifestyle/culture that requires a good deal of social courage and some tradeoffs that are difficult to imagine for average Joes steeped in modern bug-culture. They also have unusually happy, large and stable families.

    The principal objection the Amish have always had to public schooling is that it removes the child from their family’s supervision and care too often for too long.

    White people in general used to know this in their hearts and tried to live by it. Families were stronger then and our nations were stronger for it.

    While guys like Derb are busy doing “adult” things, (((experts))) are teaching their children to hate their parents, themselves, their race and their history and culture.

  19. Affluent young blacks went on being incarcerated at higher rates than poor white kids [Data Shows Affluent Black Kids Are More Likely to Be Incarcerated Than Poor White Kids, EJI.org, April 29, 2016].

    This could be (emphasis on could) evidence of systemic racism. Kids of all races get into scrapes which might land them in jail; Lord knows my stepsons (white and Asian) did. If police and judges were racist, they might throw the book at the black kids while letting the non-blacks off with warnings or suspended sentences.

    Certainly this isn’t happening in today’s climate, but the data used by the study Derb cited goes back as far as 1979.

    JD, your statement “Let’s make proper provision for those most vulnerable—elderly citizens, mainly—and get on with our lives.” brands you as one of those operatives of the covid propaganda seeking to shut down debate and obliterate fact gathering on the Alternative media about covid..
    everywhere in the Alternative media I see the same narrative<=i am tried of it propaganda <=is appearing.
    Such is obviously coming from the same central directorate? Those who are either too stupid to track the data, or those who don't care about the data, because they are already vaccinated want the narrative shut down and those who know the narrative will lead to discovery the covid people don't want exposed.

    \Which ever is the case, no way should alternative media stop the fact gathering and reporting of victim impact resulting from vaccination, gathering documenting and confirming this data is the first step in regaining our lost democracy.

    What alternative media needs to do is to require that the adverse event being reported on Alternative media be identified to the batch of vaccine being discussed in the narratives. and in the case of reporting about contents of the vaccine itself, alternative media needs to make sure test results are identified to vaccine batch that was used in the test.

    I say no such a thing as shutting down the anti covid narrative. this is just another way of saying the real data and the real problems in the vaccine and treatment of covid victims is off limits to you the governed. Well the governed are no longer willing to listen to that kind of crap.

    Until the vaccines are the only answer propaganda producers and their government partners, are forced to prove to the world with real data, and all of its details, ( the truth about vaccine, its content, its makers, and the make up and variations in the different batches, as well as present all of the data about each patient, expressing an adverse response, so that the batch of vaccine which produced an adverse response is accurately identified to the person expressing the adverse response and the batch or batches of vaccines which caused those responses are accurately identified to the patient in question)..

    Looks like a general movement of the covid propaganda crews to prevent alternative media from being able to prove some really important lies put forth by covid propaganda..and to deny alternative media ways to present in public<= data which might upset the profit making that have made so few so rich.

    BTW I am all for vaccination, but first I want to know if it works, how it works, how it is manufactured, and stored and delivered, and is it safe, does it have no short term or long term adverse expectation or probability which might kill me or ruin my health for the rest of my life.

    Yet another Unz article in which the author basically does nothing more than complain about government “services”, in this case mostly the government run “education” (read indoctrination), system, and the government run criminal “justice” ( read: injustice) system.

    As per usual, no recognition by the author of the plain as day fact that these systems, no differently from anything else government controls, all fail simply _because_ they’re all government run.

    And so therefore, there is not even a hint from the author that perhaps both education and justice systems would actually function far better in a free market environment, completely outside of government interference, as would literally 1000’s of other currently government run scams.

    Presumably, after reading this kind of milquetoast garbage, we’re all supposed to go back to sleep and dream/fantasize over “reform” within any/all of these Government run, er, “services”, with never a thought in our tiny minds that all of these alleged “public services” need to be completely eliminated, so that natural market processes have a fair chance to operate once more.

    This just in: it’s all one giant scam- Government “solutions” never work. There are _no_ government solutions to _any_ problem, never have been, never will be.

    For me, I can remember that it was in the year 1995 after the GOP-controlled Congress and the Newt, Gingrich reneged on their “Contract with America” legislation that I first noticed this. Besides tiny steps back to enable more tightening of the ratchet, things ALWAYS got worse, in the direction of bigger Gov’t and more Totalitarianism from there.

  24. @Exile

    You make a great point, Exile, as the author shows this BIG contradiction in this writing. To me, the shutting down of schools was a silver lining of this PanicFest (that I and others, BTW, were deriding in March ’20 already, not just now!). Even though the kids have been back for a year, what happened gave parents all over the country a chance to THINK about homeschooling, if nothing else. (“Hey, it’s not just for religious wackos and those preppers.”)

    Sure, it takes time away from working for a Mom to set up the kids on a HS curriculum* and for the parents to with them. So what? Mom’s staying home IS Conservatism. Big Biz wants the cheaper labor, Big Gov wants the taxes, and everyone of the Establishment wants to overpower the nuclear family by preventing a man from being able to raise one himself, AND they want the kids earlier for better indoctrination. Pre-K, anyone? No thanks!

    The reason that this did not a seem a contradiction to Mr. Derbyshire is that he doesn’t seem to really believe in the concept of small government.**

    No, we just need to stop CRT and the like, but yeah, we need the government schools. Are our voices about it working? Has anyone else read Michelle Malkin’s columns about how these “local” school boards have a big connection to national politics? Until we slash the Feral Beast, none of this will stop.

    You have great knowledge of China and the Chinese, Mr. Derbyshire. Aren’t your thoughts a bit too close to the Chinese way over those 3,500 years in which it’s always been “Stop the corruption. Get NEW PEOPLE in power.” rather than “Kill most of the government, so their can’t be so much government corruption.”?

    PS: I do appreciate the plug for homeschooling you included here, though. Thanks.

    If White people had to suffer the “great humiliation” of separate water fountains and the like today, so they could stay apart from the “ghetto” environment, I’m pretty sure 99% of them would find this a great trade-off (with only 50% of those ADMITTING it, but the rest enjoying it while advocating for CHANGE!)

    And a blunt political instrument at that being wielded by the radical left to punish anyone on the right or perceived to be on the political right. As pretty much all of us suspected the push to release violent blacks and browns from prison for “equity” and to atone for “systemic racism” is just to make room for white political criminals and wrongthinkers in state and federal prisons.

    When the Jew led left says end mass incarceration it just means changing the demographics of the prison population from majority black and brown to majority white.

    Just like the long term goal of the “civil rights” movement wasn’t racial equality and race blindness but the trading of places of blacks and whites so that whites are the new niggers and untouchables of U.S. society. Anti-white racial hatred is now the guiding principle of the Jewish occupied U.S. government and major institutions.

    What will they (GOP) do instead?

    Israel Uber Alles, tax cuts and loopholes for Wall St. and race pandering on steroids to non-whites. They are incapable of learning and think just because they achieved marginal gains among blacks and browns in the 2020 general election that a breakthrough is possible if they just pander and prostrate themselves harder.

    Of course, not all revolts are positive or constructive.

    Correct. For example, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) held up thirty of Brandon’s nominations to federal positions because they were Soros-sponsored ultra-Leftist radicals.

    Last week, Sen. Cruz voted to approve those thirty radicals because Democrats agreed to at least discuss imposing new sanctions on Russia regarding the Nordstream II pipeline to Germany.

    Oil and gas companies ordered Sen. Cruz to do this in the hope they could profit by punishing Russia.

    If Democrats do not declare martial law, and do not cancel the Nov 2022 elections, and if Republicans somehow take control of Congress, then Republicans will do what they always do: push for more war, more sanctions on Iran / China / Russia / Venezuela / Syria / etc, and more money for Israel.

    A few Republicans will propose bills to reign in things like CRT. Republicans know that Brandon will veto such bills. Proposing such bills will allow Republicans to do nothing while they claim “moral victories.”

  51. There cannot be Jim Snow laws because the Jim Crow laws however nasty excluded from most productive employment only a minority of Americans and not the most productive for critical jobs : their only superiority was in music (including classical) and all musicians no matter white or black were then excluded from the good society : it was a bohemian occupation. The Jim Crow laws applied to people who have been small farmers, land workers and restaurant helpers anyway even if Muammar Qaddhafi had treated them with utmost dignity and advantages. Jim Snow laws applying by default to all legacy white Americans would result into a catastrophic loss of productivity placing the US below most South American countries. The problem with anti-white racism of any kind is that it fatally applies also to anybody who can be easily accused of playing white, in particular anybody who performs his job in a dedicated and idealist way. At present time there has been for nearly a century a strong anti-white spirit in India, schizophrenically coupled with servile adoration of everything English : it has resulted in the country remaining more underdeveloped than ever, bar a few privileged cities and regions, despite its remarkable achievements in specific scientific fields that have failed to produce a developed economic tissue, because there is no middle ground between near-illiterate peasants and high-class economic predators living mostly though fraud, graft and make-believe. Another useful example is Haiti : there has been Jim Snow laws since the revolution of 1791-1804. But even though the former white planters have been massacred the other more modest white workers and tradesmen finally decided to remain and form a modest but rather prosperous community on the backdrop of the absolute ruin of the rest : the Jim Snow laws and general mentality just deprive them of functions in a government that provides no service to anybody and no job that pays enough to make anybody survive. In a Jim Snow America no job gotten through affirmative action would help one survive and most probably there would be no such jobs from the government as it would be a mere criminal organisation geared onto very short-term predatory gains. Not all negro communities are criminal far from it but any community claiming of negro promotion goes both criminal and broke by its very symbolic, generally not at the advantage of Afros but of Levantine-like middlemen.

    The Whites that have remained in Haiti are actually less anti-Black and better Haitian patriots on the average than people of various colours such as non-European off-Whites and even Blacks themselves, a great number of which hate their own people and treat it as slaves while being part of a Evangelical Zionist cults encouraging them in that direction. The worse against the Blacks traditionally as well as against the no so rich Whites are the near-White mulattoes. Being employed by a White is a generally a relative boon for a very Black person with the result that this community hasn’t been the objects of any attack since long except very theoretically : the big divide is between fancy, sophisticated clear Black Mulattoes and brutish, animalistic dark Blacks, and also the Levantine commercial elites as well as the criminal Latinos from nearby Dominican Republic that exploit the land as their colony. The Whites just don’t relate to the national state of Haiti except as with a criminal organization like any other (and not even the most urgent to satisfy) but to their states of origin or to private institutions. But Haiti won’t be the future of America since the country survives through remittances from America and France as well as through international charities, half of the population has managed to be on American welfare of some sort. In the case America would fall down to such a state there would be no other America nearby to care for it and it would rather turn into a kind of Irak or Syria who survive by waging wars for external contending empires, in which case as I say the mean economic level would be at the bottommost 10% of the world. America would most probably be a zone of conflict between Chinese, Muslim and Mexican armies. In such a situation Whites would regain natural status as natural-born warriors most trustworthy to be hired to ensure that the Wells Fargo convoys still pass that very ravaged country.

    But whoever studies the general evolution of marxist and marxist-inspired organizations will conclude to another story end : they all serve Zionist interests as false oppositions to the kind of absolute white supremacist capitalism Zionism essentially consists of while they last, and their final destiny is to be concede their defeat to such right-wing Zionism, like Russian communism finally did, like British labourism finally did. Classical Zionism considers that true Jews are whiter than white and were originally the only White people on Earth and that non-Jewish Whites are White thanks to have been sired by Jewish males for generations. By the way the most prevalent White supremacism of yore was Anglo-Israelism which considered that true Anglo-Saxons consisted in lost tribes of Israel : if the Jews in America go on manifesting such a degree of supremacism towards the goys, this will fatally result in the apparition of cults formed by Whites and fancying themselves as Jewer than Jew and claiming to be the true possessors of Israel itself, like the early Mayflower pilgrims. Jewish anti-capitalism lasted only as long as there remained disobedient capitalists to the Jew World Order : workers were used as a class to ruin them by all kinds of excessive demands. But as soon as the whole of the American capitalist class had understood the lesson and turned all pro-Zionist, workers were all jettisoned and sent back to their original Dickensian misery, which happened mostly under R. Reagan. Now the same process has been deployed against White Middle Classes : as long as they seem disobedient to the will of the Zionist state in some way or the other, they were deployed against anti-white ethnic groups and militant groups such as the BLM. But whenever the zionist state judges that all surviving whites are perfectly obedient and group-thinking, more so than even oriental people, Blacks will be jettisoned all of a sudden and considered the pariah race on the instinctive rejection of which by all the rest of the New World Order shall be built.

    This time is coming sooner than you imagine, but the White race that will be promoted again will have no toleration for any whiff of heterodox thought. The destruction of non-Zionist capitalists resulted in all idealism being condemned as something dirty and peasant-like both among the capitalists that survived the cull and among their employees, likewise the destruction of non-Zionist White middle classes will result in all sensual pleasures being condemned as something dirty and negro-like. Don’t expect Greta Thunberg to be really fond of Blacks : she will never go for darker than would-be Jewish Emirati Arabs on the strict condition they are billionaires.

    They tried that in Haiti and it resulted in the Clear Mulatto class reserving all the fancy water-fountains for themselves while the other poorer Blacks had to go to the river and the Whites building their own water-fountains open to everybody (but especially tourists) while the water-fountains monopolized by the richer Mulattoes broke down for lack of good repairmen among both the light and dark Blacks : the lighter ones considered themselves too intelligent and too good poets to do any repair work while the darker Blacks could not learn the trade for lack of plumbing in their own districts and sheer genetic incapacity for any careful handiwork (they can be good forgers though as long as it is artistic but when it comes to standards they have no tolerance), while the Whites despite their relative higher status having remained nevertheless (no Jim Snow system of law can do anything about it : remember that whenever children are shown Barbie dolls anywhere in the world they invariably tell that the kinder one is the white one, and the wicked the darker one) don’t feel devalued doing plumbing work.

    With the woke elites in power there will be no single water-fountain unbroken and no running water wherever they gather because that class hates with a special kind of hatred all workers, not only White workers, as collaborators of the White world they want to destroy, and know that they are paid by corporations to humiliate the whole working class : they already condemn mathematics and any menial work requiring them like carpentry. It is actually a plan to make America without running water again. The only running water systems remaining will be the same few that existed before America became industrial : in a tiny few white communities only where the interest in detailed work was prevalent. The woke elites are now ten times as bad towards ordinary blacks (they cannot tolerate religious Blacks) and Jim Crow Whites used to be (every single time a Black elite forms it is the same story) and long before they have their water-fountains forbidden to Whites they will have cut off running water to most hoods they are in charge of : actually that’s their part in the global elite plans, depriving people of modern comfort and getting them back to pre-industrial levels, starting with their own. Actually judging from past history Jim Snow will not take place according to colour but according to religion and ideology for fear of bad vibes. There will be water-fountains for elite wokes only, water-fountains for Evangelicals, and so on, except that the first one will be broken all the time as they won’t allow any white worker to repair them (don’t underestimate their Jim Jones like taste for kool aid) nor any Black so looser as to be proud to be a good plumber. They will rather pay Whites do deliver them scientifically distilled water in luxury containers.

Most Russians even the not so Stalinist did dream of killing a bourgeois or a cosmopolitan intellectual. There was a revolt against the awful living conditions, but against the Whites, against the West, and for Stalin and under Stalin’s demonic surefire guidance. Now “only” 2/5 of Russians still dearly miss Stalin and the times when even the USA trembled hearing of them.

    As for the Great Leap Forward there was a huge military revolt and a near civil war that nearly missed purging Mao (who was replaced by Lui Shao Qi) : Mao admitted he had lost the great Leap Forward like a general having lost a battle, though everyone agreed that the battle had had to be fought and had to be fought again soon this time to be won : it was to be called the cultural revolution : 2/3 of the Chinese people enthused about it while it lasted and enabled them tormenting the other third, and many more than you think wept and committed suicide when it was announced by hua Guo Feng and Deng Xiao Ping it was over for good.

    The ideal recipe for a revolution to happen is a keen lack of bread and meat but an over-powering glut of wine or stronger liquor (or ego-inflating drug). It was done on purpose onto France by Britain in 1789 : France had just signed a free trade act with Britain, Britain bought all the grain but would import wine only from Portugal and textiles only from Naples. All subsequent revolutions in France happened due to the same kind of arranged conditions by the City of London : 1830, 1848, 1871, 1936 and … 1968 : food was over-priced once more (10% per year) but media (records, TVs, films..) and related consumption goods had suddenly grown so dirt-cheap, and once more it turned out to have been organized from Britain. The Russian revolution was triggered according to the same principle : just before the coup of October the Bolsheviks pillaged the countryside of all gain and cattle but flooded the country with cheaper than water vodka.

    The 1776 American revolution was not a revolution but a financial take-over by the wealthy (who wanted to become what America had never known up to then : aristocrats endowed with bound serfs or slaves, castles, horse-carriages…) at most middle and poor people’s expense (the bourgeois wouldn’t pay for the pensions of the numerous disabled veterans the seven Years War had made, hence the time old tradition in the US for veterans to end up as hobos) and also the signature of a collective satanic pact with the Jews (who were then concentrated in the South) acting as celebrants : the new country thus created was promised to be the richest in the world but only in exchange for its intelligence which would go ever downwards to the day it would reach zero and the country lose all sovereignty and money, 250 years later.

    I had to look up Dispensationalism. Having looked it up, though, I was no wiser, as my eyes glazed over before I’d finished the first paragraph of explanation. I am very, very, deeply uninterested in theology.

    You are correct that we should be looking at Gentile pathologies enabling and supporting Jews.

    However, we’re not going to get that from a man who fails to understand Dispensationalism and can’t be bothered with theology.

    Mr. Derbyshire is of limited use when it comes to understanding Jewish power because he fails to understand Evangelical consent. All because his brain hurts when he bumps up against something he doesn’t understand.

    Sarah,I have often wondered why in the “greatest democracy on earth”, there are ONLY,two political parties on election Day?Republicats and Democrans! Americans then complain it’s,six on one side and half a dozen,on the next-its the “same difference”.What are you all doing to smash this duopoly and when?Yours is the only first world country with ONLY two parties-really! You all have known this for decades and done nothing but gripe,belly ache!Here is a suggestion start a DONT NOT VOTE campaign.You are tired and sick to your stomach of this two horse scam.Or demand that there is a spot on the ballot paper to vote NONE OF THE ABOVE.Finally get like minded to start a few political parties and get them on the ballot paper,with credible audits,for the voting process. Peace.

    A little discomfort and hardship isn’t the end of the world. It can make you stronger. The kids and young adults today are little wimps. Thanks to the internet, education is more accessible and cheap than it ever was. You can buy e-books on Kindle and Apple’s Books app covering literature, history, math, etc., and they are very affordable. There are websites and YouTube channels that will teach you just about any subject for free. Being off the grid is not an automatic ticket to ignorance.

    we need railroads and truck beds on trains, ships and barges, with roll offs and lift offs, but not trucks on long distance highways.

    These rails and marine ports should allow loading docks for many commercial operations.

    Centralized distribution is subject to all kinds of unavoidable problems, while local distribution allows storage to be like the internet..none of the nodes are dependent on the performance of the other. knock a few of them out of service for snow, hurricane, or tornado etc.. and no giant problem in the supply chain.. if cities were smart, they would build and keep ownership of warehouses in the public domain at sites that can accommodate port and rail transport cargoes .. and keep local goods in stock.. immunize themselves, and their local suppliers, from private party blackmail..

    They are not “midterms”. Congressional elections in World Cup years have exactly the same status as those in Summer Olympic years.

    House terms are two years, Senate terms six. Midterm elections would have to take place in odd-numbered years. That’s basic arithmetic.

    History does indeed support your claim. Unfortunately, it also refutes it.

    You’re certainly right that not all revolts are positive and constructive. And whatever revolt against the hostile elite some are hoping for, or are even predicting, won’t be either positive or constructive if it isn’t well-organized around some unifying goal.

    But does anyone really see that happening?

    Derb also left out the Kyle Rittenhouse dog and pony show from his list of bread and circus’s show trials.

    Well yeah, because it turned out not to be a show trial. Rittenhouse got the verdict he deserved.

    Someone else mentioned that he left out the Charlottesville trial. I’m guessing he did so because that took place before the time period he was focused on.

    Hunger causes biological changes in the brain. When the body is well fed and out of immediate danger, threat detection shuts down. We need more than “discomfort” we need to recognize an existential threat, but that won’t happen while the bread and circuses are plentiful.

    Pay them a decent wage, train them, then watch the magic happen. The zoom crowd has been processing tremendous amounts of data every day of their lives.

Growing up on a farm (or the 1960s) will not allow your brain to reach its full potential simply due to lack of stimulation (Flynn Effect).

    It was a show trial. Because there should have been NO trial at all. And the fact that the kid got off is nothing short of a miracle!
    The verdict doesn’t change the intent of the prosecutors, govt, and MSM defamation of Rittenhouse.
    Rittenhouse was to be a warning to the right, “average Joe white Americans.” that you had better not even dare try to defend yourself, your community, or property from the machinations of the left.

    They’ve lost (or never had) lots of analog thinking that the older crowd you deride has. I’ve had a young lady teaching a class who got the Bernoulli principal backwards. She was great at saying how “if this happens and this is set, this other thing would happen.”, but didn’t actually UNDERSTAND, Jack Squat!

I was able to move to another country over 10 years ago and can live a much more comfortable life. While \$3800 a month might seem like chump change in the overexpensive states I have been able to afford multiple cars, motorcycles, a 5 bedroom house that I had built from scratch, multiple kids in private Catholic school with no crt garbage and no political correctness. sure I know I am not the Avg disabled vet but there is a real possibility to live a rich and wonderful life with no worries about a stupid job.

    The problem was that the CPC did so well after 1949 in raising living standards and life expectancy that the population grew by ten million plus, per year, through the 50s. Agriculture did not keep pace, so when the natural weather disasters hit, and millions of peasants were off making pig iron, the situation grew grim.
    Luckily the Government, being competent, distributed what food there was and bought more overseas, but the country only having recovered for ten years after two centuries of invasion, colonisation, civil wars and Japanese genocide, many starved or died from preventable nutrition related disease. Your figure of forty million is pure hate propaganda from a racist baboon (with apologies to baboons).

    Pehhaps apathy, not worship, is more prevalent among the goyim. I can understand the slobbering of the Evangelicals and Cradle Catholics, who fear that their religious sites would be given the Palmyra Treatment under a Salafist regime (most unlikely). However, in matters of state, there DOES seem to be a codependent relationship–or sick symbiosis if you will–between Washington and Jerusalem. Here at home, undiscerning voters cast their ballots for those candidates who prop up the Schumers, Hoyers, Raskins, Schiffs, Cohens, et. al., who are totally in hock to their (((donors)) and perhaps in fear of the BLM/Antifa crazies that (((said donors))) have unleashed. Even in his respectful A History of the Jews, Paul Johnson couldn’t help but refer to an iconoclastic and subversive subculture among The Chosen that has had a strained with with the rabbinate and the professionals–not to mention the larger society.

    After the first couple years, yes, rapid population growth occurred. If we take Judith Banister’s construction of Chinese population figures from page 352 of China’s Changing Population we get:

    1949: 559,545,000
    1950: 563,253,000 (increase of 3,708,000)
    1951: 567,659,000 (4,406,000)
    1952: 574,991,000 (7,332,000)
    1953: 584,191,000 (9,200,000)
    1954: 594,725,000 (10,534,000)
    1955: 606,730,000 (12,005,000)
    1956: 619,136,000 (12,406,000)
    1957: 633,215,000 (14,079,000)
    1958: 646,703,000 (13,498,000)
    1959: 654,349,000 (7,646,000)
    1960: 650,661,000 (decrease of -3,688,000)
    1961: 644,670,000 (-5,991,000)
    1962: 653,302,000 (increase of 8,632,000)
    1963: 674,249,000 (20,947,000)

    I have some doubts about the speed at which Banister shows the population growth ramping up right after 1961. If the birth rates were a bit lower in 1963 than Banister claims, then this would imply that her estimated death rate for 1960 of 44.6 per thousand might be a bit too high. But there’s no point in quibbling too much.

    As I’ve had occasion to observe before, the phony “40 million” number is doctored up by cross-matching the numbers originally given in the Statistical Yearbook of China 1986 with Banister’s revised numbers in selective ways. The Statistical Yearbook for 1986 claims that China had a per thousand death rate of 20 in 1949 which then declined to 10.8. Banister revises this as 38 and 18.12. Both the Yearbook and Banister show incremental rises in death rates from 1957 to 1959, with a big rise in 1960 (the year of catastrophic natural disaster). But Banister’s numbers are necessarily larger all around. If one uses the lower estimate of 10.8 which the Yearbook gives for 1957, but then cross-pollinate this with the higher estimates of death rates which Banister gives for later years, one can create the impression that 40 million died in 1958-61 that would not have had the death rate remained at its 1957 level. But this simply uses a falsely deflated estimate of what the 1957 death rate was, while ignoring the reality that death rates were well below the pre-revolutionary era in all years but 1960 (when the typhoons and drought hit on a massive scale).

    Before there will be an original negro government there will be an original negro computer. Those who have told be that are negroes, and not self-hating ones. They are now painstakingly trying to devise a better and more user-friendly toy than those of Apple, it might take a century but they will do it, and then only they will invent a better operating system for humans. Up to that date there won’t be a negro government but at most a Jewish government with a lot of negro porn actors but even then when Jews have made the US into an officially Jewish state it will be mostly thanks to the Christian Zionist churches that will ask for it as the American pioneers’ original dream for the future, and then Jews will no longer need negroes to intimidate such self-enslaved Whites, and relegate them back into their traditional role of “slaves of the (White) slaves” (Gen.) themselves as clearly prescribed by both Talmud and Torah.

    I have personally worked with people of various ethnic backgrounds in the course of my time in the military and in jobs in civilian life. Not everyone is quite as smart a they like to think they are, and being one skin color or the other guarantees or predict nothing. One thing IS true, when you go to select or promote management you want to try to find your best candidates on account they will be called upon to give directions, conduct job training evaluation and go to those meetings and try to keep the company you work for on track. So, to be good at it, not only do you need to be pretty mart, you also need to be a good problem solver, communicator, probably have some school, and be mentally and physically able to put in the extra effort and hours that managers tend to do.

    MLK talked about content of a person’s character, true then, true today. Work ethic is something that is maybe learned and your social environment you grew up in will inform that to some degree but not exclusively. ‘Woke ethic’ is supposedly our newfound wisdom that if you import more P.C.B.S into the jobsite that it will heal all social ills and we’ll all sing kumbayah and get along magically and there will be no grumbling or jobsite shootings over long-held grudges, disappointments or mental and emotional brakdowns when people finally hit their performance limits on account we’re all human.

    Moral of the story, respect others, bring your good manner and your “A” game, don’t pre-judge, try to be your best, don’t bad-mouth. Be a pro. Be and do your best, which is all anyone would ask of you. Pitch the victim chalk and don’t judge a person on skin color. You ill find in your own experience that your milieage may vary and the people that look jut like you can be just as imperfect and fallible and manifest all those negative traits you used to only attribute to those other people. 🙂

    Excellent and informative article. In your linked article (also good) about our woke Navy’s at sea pregnancies, et al., you there referenced its four recent USN ship collisions. I was surprised that you did not there include the below quote from Conrad’s Heart of Darkness:

    “Going up that river was like traveling back to the earliest beginnings of the world, when vegetation rioted on the earth and the big trees were kings. An empty stream, a great silence, an impenetrable forest. The air was warm, thick, heavy, sluggish. There was no joy in the brilliance of sunshine. The long stretches of the waterway ran on, deserted, into the gloom of overshadowed distances. On silvery sand-banks hippos and alligators sunned themselves side by side. The broadening waters flowed through a mob of wooded islands; you lost your way on that river as you would in a desert, and butted all day long against shoals, trying to find the channel, till you thought yourself bewitched and cut off for ever from everything you had known once—somewhere—far away—in another existence perhaps. There were moments when one’s past came back to one, as it will sometimes when you have not a moment to spare for yourself; but it came in the shape of an unrestful and noisy dream, remembered with wonder amongst the overwhelming realities of this strange world of plants, and water, and silence. And this stillness of life did not in the least resemble a peace. It was the stillness of an implacable force brooding over an inscrutable intention. It looked at you with a vengeful aspect. I got used to it afterwards; I did not see it any more; I had no time. I had to keep guessing at the channel; I had to discern, mostly by inspiration, the signs of hidden banks; I watched for sunken stones; I was learning to clap my teeth smartly before my heart flew out, when I shaved by a fluke some infernal sly old snag that would have ripped the life out of the tin-pot steamboat and drowned all the pilgrims; I had to keep a lookout for the signs of dead wood we could cut up in the night for next day’s steaming. When you have to attend to things of that sort, to the mere incidents of the surface, the reality—the reality, I tell you—fades. The inner truth is hidden—luckily, luckily. But I felt it all the same; I felt often its mysterious stillness watching me at my monkey tricks, just as it watches you fellows performing on your respective tight-ropes for—what is it? half-a-crown a tumble—”
    “Try to be civil, Marlow,” growled a voice, and I knew there was at least one listener awake besides myself.
    “I beg your pardon. I forgot the heartache which makes up the rest of the price. And indeed what does the price matter, if the trick be well done? You do your tricks very well. And I didn’t do badly either, since I managed not to sink that steamboat on my first trip. It’s a wonder to me yet. Imagine a blindfolded man set to drive a van over a bad road. I sweated and shivered over that business considerably, I can tell you. After all, for a seaman, to scrape the bottom of the thing that’s supposed to float all the time under his care is the unpardonable sin. No one may know of it, but you never forget the thump—eh? A blow on the very heart. You remember it, you dream of it, you wake up at night and think of it—years after—and go hot and cold all over..

    Thanks. Excellent reads.
