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

The core ideology of our Ruling Class, which citizens contradict at peril of losing their livelihood, is Race Denialism. Statistical differences in outcome by race cannot possibly be biological in origin. The only reasons for those differences you may discuss in public are social: poverty, oppression, lack of self-esteem. And in fact all of those reasons have a single root cause: “systemic racism” on the part of whites towards other races.

Of course, there are at least two problems with this Race Denialism.

You might therefore think that the evidence against Race Denialism is now so glaringly obvious as to force Denialists to some reconsideration—some doubts as to the soundness of their theory.

That, however, would be to underestimate the fanaticism of the Race Denialists. Once a big idea has a real grip on believers, mere logic has no power to dislodge it.

Think of those religious cults that proclaim the Second Coming on a certain date. The faithful assemble on a mountain-top the day before to await the blessed event. Nothing happens. Do they realize the folly of their belief? Not at all. The cult leader just revises his calculations and announces a new date. When the new date arrives, there are the faithful, waiting on the mountain-top again.

There are two social zones in which differences in outcome by race are most plain and have proven most intractable: 1) law enforcement; and 2) academic achievement. Decade after decade, social program after social program, administration after administration, black Americans end up in jail at rates stupendously higher than whites and Asians, and black Americans perform academically at rates dismally lower than whites and Asians.

Nothing works, nothing changes; the statistics stay stubbornly the same. What’s a race denialist to do?

Well, he could abandon his faith and become a race realist; but as I’ve already noted, that’s asking the psychologically impossible.

So here’s what the Race Denialists have come up with at last: Stop generating the statistics! Too many blacks getting arrested, tried, convicted, and jailed? Stop arresting them! Blacks’ academic test scores are way lower than whites’ and Asians’? Stop testing!

This is actually the point Race Denialism has arrived at.

  • Law Enforcement

Monday December 7, the city of Los Angeles CA, home to our country’s largest prosecutor’s office and biggest nonfederal jail system, got itself a new District Attorney: 66-year-old Cuban immigrant and ex-cop George Gascón.

At his swearing-in ceremony on Monday, Mr. Gascón [Tweet him] promised a sweeping, top-to-bottom relaxation of law enforcement for the city. No more cash bail; no more prosecutions of most first-time, nonviolent offenders; no more enhanced prison sentences for accused gang members; a review of thousands of old cases to reduce sentences or overturn convictions altogether.

A whole slew of misdemeanors will no longer be prosecuted by DA Gascón’s office at all. They have essentially been de-criminalized.

Driving without a license, or with a suspended license? No prosecution. Public intoxication? No prosecution. Open soliciting for sex? No prosecution. Vagrancy? No prosecution.

You’re a small-business owner and customers can’t get into your store because of bums sleeping in the street outside—or, when not sleeping, shooting up with drugs, picking fights with passers-by, or crapping? Don’t bother calling the cops, they won’t respond.

Most incredibly, DA Gascón will no longer prosecute for resisting arrest. How will that work?

If anyone in authority sincerely wanted to reduce the shooting of suspects by police, there would be no better strategy than to mount a massive long-term publicity campaign to tell people not to resist arrest. Conversely, if some lunatic wanted to increase the shooting of perps by cops, the best way to do that would be to encourage people to resist arrest—by decriminalizing it, for instance.

Apparently, DA Gascón is that lunatic.

As Heather Mac Donald wrote:

The vast majority of police shootings … could be eliminated tomorrow, if all suspects complied with officers’ commands. Resisting arrest is the biggest predictor of officer use of force.

‘No bail’ just part of it: LA’s new DA totally eviscerating basic law, NY Post, December 9, 2020

And I must say, for such a powerful official of the law, DA Gascón’s grasp of Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence seems not very firm. Quote from him at Monday’s swearing-in ceremony

There’s no question that the murder of George Floyd shook the conscience of this country in many corners where people were not concerned about this work before.

[‘A Tsunami of Change’: How Protests Fueled a New Crop of Prosecutors, By Tim Arango, NYT, December 8, 2020]

So the Los Angeles DA pronounces a murder verdict on the Minneapolis police officers three months before their trial is scheduled to open.

Is this really a guy Los Angelenos want supervising their city’s law enforcement?

Apparently, it is. They elected him: In fact he prevailed in a runoff election against Jackie Lacey, who (a) is female, (b) is black, and (c) had the support of every big political player in Southern California, including the Mayor of L.A.

It’s not just Los Angeles, either. The New York Times—which, by the way, in their “news” story about DA Gascón’s swearing-in above, also mentions, quote, “the killing of Mr. Floyd,” although no killing has yet been proved, he may have died of an overdose—that the decriminalization of crime is a nationwide trend. Quote:

The dynamics that propelled Mr. Gascón to victory played out in similar fashion in Austin, Texas, where a candidate vowing to end prosecutions of some drug sales won, and in Orlando, Fla., where voters elected Monique Worrell, whose background includes investigating claims of wrongful convictions.

…followed by approving mentions of similar cases in Georgia, Michigan, Colorado and Ohio.

Those of us with long memories have been here before. My favorite example, which I have pulled out from my own long memory at least once before, features “Turn ’em Loose Bruce.” Longish Quote from self:

Back in the late 1980s, there was a judge in New York City named Bruce Wright, known to all as “Turn ‘Em Loose Bruce” for his lenience towards the criminals who came up before him. This was one of those liberal judges who had an excuse for every felon, even for those too stupid or obstreperous to have prepared an excuse for themselves.

Well, one day Judge Wright [pictured right] got mugged in the street near his home. He was off work for a few days. It was a big story in the tabloid newspapers, and a lot of people were making jokes about it.

ORDER IT NOW

When Judge Wright returned to the bench, he made a point of starting off that day’s session with an announcement: “As I’m sure you all know, I was the victim of a criminal assault the other day. I want to make it clear that this experience will in no way change my sentencing policies on this bench!”

As he paused to let this sink in, someone called out from the back of the courtroom: “Mug him again!”

 

To judge from the results of these DA elections, a substantial part of our country is now infected with what I hereby christen “Turn ‘Em Loose Bruce Syndrome.”

Mug ’em again!

  • Academic Test Scores

Here the Race Denialists have gotten a big assist from the Coronavirus panic. Resistant as I am to conspiracy theories, I’m starting to wonder if perhaps this virus was sent to us by Satan in order to destroy civilization.

Use of the SAT and ACT standardized tests is fading fast. Here’s a typical announcement from the University of California at Los Angles:

UCLA will not consider SAT or ACT scores for admission or scholarship purposes through fall 2024.

Freshman Requirements, UCLA Official Website

It’s like that all over. Here’s the University of Texas:

High school students who apply to The University of Texas at Austin for fall 2021 undergraduate admission will not be required to submit an ACT or SAT test score as part of their application.

Standardized Testing Policy FAQs, UT Austin Official Website

The Ivies, too—Yale University:

Applicants who are unable to complete an exam or who choose not to report exam scores will not be disadvantaged.

Standardized Testing Requirements & Policies, Yale Official Website

The official explanation for all this dropping of SAT/ACT requirements: a lot of the test centers have closed, so that students who want to take the tests, can’t. The InsideHigherEd website claims that more than half of the students who registered to take the SAT on September 26th, couldn’t.[ More Bad News for the SAT, by Scott Jaschik, September 28, 2020]

I don’t see any reason to doubt that official explanation. But it plays right into the hands of the Race Deniers, who’ve been agitating to kill standardized tests since way before the coronavirus showed up. The University of California was being sued in state court last year by activists seeking to get rid of SAT and ACT requirements. (Carol Christ, [Email her] the chancellor of the Berkeley campus naturally sided with the activists.) [Should The SAT Test Be Outlawed?, by Richard Vedder, Forbes, December 16, 2019]

So how should colleges select the most promising students from among their applicant pools? Holistically. The word “holistic” shows up time and again in college statements about their admissions processes.

What does it mean in practice? Nine years ago at the Claremont Review of Books I reviewed Andrew Ferguson’s book titled Crazy U: One Dad’s Crash Course in Getting His Kids Into College. I wrote:

Ferguson closes a long paragraph on “holistic” admissions with the observation: “A more practical and accurate term for holistic admissions is ‘completely subjective.” Which I think we all kind of knew.

  1. If we got rid of all the drug laws, there would be a huge decrease in people arrested for a non violent offense that’s completely made up just to incarcerate people. Some huge portion of the prison population is there on drug offenses and these people are then scarred for life with a felony conviction for a completely made up crime.

    There are already laws against violence and fraud, but laws that say you may not ingest something are plain stupid. It didn’t work for alcohol and hasn’t worked for drugs for 50 years, so shouldn’t we admit failure and rescind stupidity?

    As for testing students, this will graduate more pinheads with a degree to water down degrees to what we think of a high school diploma today. What’s really needed is to get rid of the bullshit degrees in the humanities and social sciences and concentrate on STEM so the rest of the world doesn’t pass up the US in things that actually count. The US doesn’t need more lawyers, politicians, stock brokers, but does need engineers and scientists. Those programs are rigorous enough to weed out those that can’t make it along the way. Testing weeds out those that are likely to be roadkill to provide a place for those smart enough to succeed.

  5. A very realistic assessment here. Denial is a powerful form of fantasy enablement, and it exists in many forms, such as class denial, gender denial, age denial and so on. For every form of discrimination (not necessarily in the pejorative sense, but more so in the sense of detail or classification) there is a form of denial.

    I would argue that humanity has been for many years pulled in the direction of a denial of anything “natural” (including nature itself, evolution and genetics) and further toward the artificial (as in artificial intelligence being superior to human intelligence, etc.).

    We can see that “denial” is clearly associated with a denial of truth, or at least of the reality of natural truths, such as this article attempts to point out with regard to race.

    But more importantly, extreme leftist race denial is merely one observable tactic toward their ultimate goal of race elimination. It is clear that the “open society” concept attempts to blend races and cultures into a single monoculture, similar to that which has been accomplished in modern agriculture with respect to the elimination of biodiversity – oddly ironic, as its proponents hold up the NEW GREEN flag of social justice through their noble sounding patina of “sustainability”. And yet their monoculture farming completely destroys the natural progress and richness of biodiversity, which could put an end to natural sustainability as it is replaced by its artificial archetype.

    Thus, the true problem with race denial (or race elimination) is the elimination of natural, cultural, social and ethnic diversity – and then to go even further against the natural world with transhumanism and the final “denial” – the denial of mortality.

    To this end, we must ask ourselves, can humans live forever? Aging technocrats such as Klaus Schwab are maniacally driven to betting their lives on it. But can we call these aspiring hybrid immortals human? The very definition of terms here determines that we cannot.

    We can blend out race, and eventually blend out humanity, but the richness and diversity of the natural world will be lost forever. We can play God, but will we become real Gods in the natural world, as we reach for immortality? Or do we deny the natural world and reign over an artificial construct of our own making?

    Three minor corrections in an otherwise great article. John you referred to the Black President. He was not black; he was a mixed race person, or a half breed or whatever you want to call him. The fact is his mother was white with a PhD; his black African Muslim father ran off somewhere. To call him black is racist and an insult to his white side.

    Secondly, your term Whites does not break down anything for Jews.; Jews belong in a separate category. One thing about high school test scores today: they seldom break down race anymore., and they never publish stats coming out of Jewish private schools because it would be like a volcano going off. 20 years ago I read an interesting article that discussed the top 25 high schools in my City according to various criteria: one was points for athletic performance. The sole Jewish school on a per capita basis finished last with a score of 0…that is right, 0ut of 100…not even a 1. On academics the Jewish school was 97 with the next closest 64 and then down from there.

    Thirdly , you do not mention Native North Americans or indigenous people: a train wreck despite trillions spent and wasted.

    It is incredible that an entire Country like the US cannot deal with the simple facts of Cognitive Dissonance and the best and the brightest too continue to ostrich like delude themselves out of politics and fear. over race, like what happens in the NFL or track and field. Take one last example from Canada ,where my cousin is a Professor: Justin Trudeau, the current Prime Minister and son of the long serving Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. Justin grew up in Montreal and speaks fluent French and English. 70% of Canadians and 99% of the world thinks that Justin Trudeau is French, because of the name and the Father, and because they often hear him speaking French. And his spin masters in his office use that lie when it is necessary for Politics, like Barrack did by playing both sides of the street. The fact is Justin Trudeau is only 1/4 French…that is right. Check out a simple biography. His father was Pierre Elliot Trudeau with a full English mother and a full French father. Pierres who was 47 married, 21 year old flower child Margret Sinclair who was full English. Justin Trudeau like Barack is racially a total media lie.

    If you’d bother to read arrest reports and follow the cases through the courts ( Florida puts them on line ) you’d know simple drug possession doesn’t get you a prison term. You get probation and or remanded to a drug addiction treatment program. First offenders invariably get an ‘adjudication witheld” to avoid the stigma of a felony conviction even if you were in possession of narcotics like heroin, meth, fentanyl etc.

    What can get you a prison sentence is to continually violate the terms of your probation either by committing a new violation of the law and or repeatedly failing your drug test. At some point the judge will say enough and revoke your probation and order you to serve the sentence the law imposes for the original crime.

    The other route to prison for a drug charge is happening to the guy who stole my car earlier this year. He had a prior conviction for possession of meth ( in 2018) but no other criminal charges in Florida. When he was found in possession of my car he was arrested ans searched. He had 24 grams of meth and 15 grams of cocaine in his cargo pants. That’s more than simple possession. Its trafficking in narcotics. He probably would’ve have only gotten probation for the car theft but the trafficking in narcotics on top of the car theft and prior narcotics conviction is going to get this criminal a prison term.

    Do they do that? I think they just call Trump supporters uneducated, which they largely are.

    “Racist” is a better way to woke-war someone out of their job, anyway. When I was a research assistant, I’d encourage my activist students to videotape, ask for names, google search and then contact their employers. This was pre-Trump (circa the Occupy movement) but the racist accusation worked well back then, too.

    I sympathise to a degree with what you say about non-violent drug offences, but would I be right in saying that the offence is not using the drugs but being found in possession of them? A semantic distinction, perhaps, but important. You are assuming that people are serving long sentences just for being found with drugs, but don’t the police and the courts deal proportionately with these cases in such a way that if somebody is clearly only found in possession of drugs for their own personal use, the prison sentence – if any – is not likely to be very long. I agree that most shouldn’t go to prison at all, but isn’t it likely that most of those serving lengthier sentences are there because they are assumed to be dealers and traffickers, and thus involved in organised crime in some way?

    Pierre Trudeau’s mother was half French Canadian and half English Canadian. So Justin is 3/8 French.

    Justin is not widely perceived as being French Canadian in Quebec. He makes mistakes in French that a native French-speaker would rarely make, like using the wrong gender for a noun.

    We can see that “denial” is clearly associated with a denial of truth, or at least of the reality of natural truths, such as this article attempts to point out with regard to race.

    So race denialists live in a fantasy world, rather than addressing the reality of the situation, which is, as quoted from the article: “decade after decade… black Americans perform academically at rates dismally lower than whites and Asians.”

    But then you write:

    We can blend out race, and eventually blend out humanity, but the richness and diversity of the natural world will be lost forever. We can play God, but will we become real Gods in the natural world, as we reach for immortality? Or do we deny the natural world and reign over an artificial construct of our own making?

    What “God” do you believe in? Yahweh? I wonder if you’re one of those Jews or Christians that’s in denial about the age of the earth.

    I’m not being flip here. I’m pointing out that every believer in organized religion lives in denial, which is why they are unprepared to deal with reality, including racial reality.

    But I’m not a communist. And I’m not a racist. But I am a nationalist who believes the races can and should be preserved in their nations with strong national borders.

    Jews and Judeo-Christians, however, only want to preserve the Jewish “chosen” race in Israel, and bleed all the other races together around the rest of the globe so they can control them financially and set themselves up as a kind of global “royalty.” They’re called Zionists, and their delusions of grandeur have their basis in religious fantasy.

    I wonder — and I’m asking this sincerely — if we got rid of the Zionists once and for all, would that eliminate the clog that is preventing humanity from taking the next great stride forward? Or are Jews AND Blacks actually the clog?

    Because clearly, we can’t go on like this. Something has got to give, and it’s most likely going to be a nuclear war which means the end of EVERYONE unless we take drastic steps to eliminate the clog. Maybe that’s why irrational Zionists welcome the End Times — so they don’t have to face the reality of what they are.

    I remember someone once went by the prophetic Internet moniker NigsAndJewsBadNews. That stuck with me ever since.

    Chris, I do not see that we are much different in certain ways. For example, from my latest post at the annals:

    But more precisely, I’m a libertarian moderate, leaning toward conservative social values – and a nation-state sovereigntist.

    As for religion, I do not belong an “organized” religion, though I believe in the morality and general teachings of Christianity. As an individual, I believe in certain things, and do not believe in certain others. For example, I do not believe in the concept of a “jealous God”. Nor do I believe that if there is a God, he , she or it demands “faith” or to forbid the logic of “I just don’t know”.

    As for Jews, Blacks or Zionists, I do not see any of these groups as being responsible for “the problem”. I see individuals within these groups as being central to the problem. Individuals such as Schwab, Soros, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Gates, Tedros, Fauci … and probably many others who deem themselves worthy of ruling over countries and their people in a despotic fashion.

    Of these individuals some may be Jews, blacks or Zionists. Some clearly are not. Some may be puppets, and some may be puppet masters. The problem with discrimination (of the pejorative type) is that a group is blamed, rather than individuals.

    I believe that the proper punishment and example set for individuals guilty of crimes against humanity would be an excellent way for humanity to take the next great stride forward. Thank you for your thoughts.

    By humanities, I assume you mean the canon of European and non European literature and philosophy. America like the other English speaking countries has the misfortune that Joe the plumber for example can be turned into a sage. So Joe the plumber or Biden or Trump becomes the country’s heroes and leaders. I categorised Trump there but Trump also has some founding fathers’ native sense. In non English speaking countries, the leaders have to be also fluent in English. Therefore learning another language gives prestige to formal education and develops general cognitive skills. Now if you are a genius, you don’t have to learn another language. The founders of Silicon valley were College drop outs who made their fortunes from tinkering in garages. But Steve Jobs died from an apple eating fad and Bill Gates wants to poison the world with vaccines. That suggests a more literary education would have been good for them. But for the general population a one language culture degenerates into a buffoon culture. Yourself for example I assume are not fluent in any other language except maybe in a slum oral language like Spanish to make such an idiot commnent. But then I could be wrong. I myself have academic qualifications in five languages but can only speak one.

    His children are 1/2 white and 1/2 “East Asian -or, to be more specific, half-English and half-Chinese-
    just as mulattos are half-white and half-negro and mestizos are half-white and half-Amerindian. What’s your point -that the existence of tens of millions of mixed-race humans proves that “race doesn’t exist as a biological reality”?

    In discussing race, it’s imperative to distinguish between groups and individuals. Individual blacks are more intelligent than the average white and “east Asian” and more intelligent than most individual “Asians” and Europeans -but Europeans and “Asians” as groups are far more intelligent than negros in sub-Sahanan Africa, Heiti, and the US.

    The putative average-IQ os “blacks” in the US is profoundly misleading in that millions of so-called “blacks” are partly or half or mostly or almost entirely white. The average !O of Haitians and sub-Saharan Africans is 67-70. So what is the average IQ of “blacks” in the US who are purely negroid, epecially if 1O is 80% genetic.

    To claim that “race doesnt’ exist,” that race “beneth the skin” is an “articial social construct,” is to deny what is true of whites and “Asians” as groups in contrast to negros on average and statistically.

    If blacks are exactly the same as whites and “Asians” apart from skin collor and other superfical anatomical differences, what are the odds that 19 of the poorest nations on earth are ruled and inhabited by negros? The only exception is Afghanistan, which has far less to do with genetics than with the Taliban and decades of war with the USSR and the United States.

    If blacks in the US were twice as violent and criminal as whites, then one could argue that such disparites were purely environmental, a corollary of histtory, culture, and polticss. but since blacks are 10-times more violent and criminal that whites and 20 or 30-times more violent and criminal than “asians,” any realistic and honest person would argue and realize that such disparities are largely and essentially biological in causation: with blacks, predominantty young males in their teens and 20s, low-average inteligient combined with higher levels of testosterone than Europeans and especially “Asians.”

    And to the degree that such disparities are an effect of culture and politics rather than biology, the cause is not “racism” but the lie and canard of negros as victims of “racism” and whites as “raicsts’ and “oppressors,” which incites anti-white violence, and the systemic coddling of violent and/or recidivist black criminals.

    “Half a century of efforts, including massive favoritism towards blacks, expenditures of trillions…”

    Christopher Caldwell, in his latest book, in a chapter on “debt,” asks “What did $20 trillion in debt buy?” He then answers his own question: “Social peace.” I believe that “social peace at any cost” is by now the firmly entrenched philosophy. The Covid era has shown that the Fed’s printing press makes the cost, in effect, zero (at least so far). This will go on and on; spending money to cushion the erosion of meritocracy and decency. The big question is whether the unraveling, although cushioned, will be contagious across occupations, races, geography, and social class. If the unraveling does turn out to be contagious, my Asian-American dentist will be among the last to throw-in the towel, and say “Good enough.”

    Thus, the true problem with race denial (or race elimination) is the elimination of natural, cultural, social and ethnic diversity – and then to go even further against the natural world with transhumanism and the final “denial” – the denial of mortality.

    The true problem with race denial is that the egalitarians haven’t presented us with a working model based on what they say is true.

    They seem to like all the neat things that Whites have invented but act if that “just happens” with any group. Well where is their working model here? They fall back to WHITES DID IT which means Whites may have created vaccines but they also blocked other groups from creating them. As time passes this makes less sense as the countries freed from the evil rule of Whites don’t advance as egalitarians predicted. Instead of accepting some group inequality they direct even more rage against not just Whites but their history (statues, historical figures). They push White guilt even more under the assumption that damn Whitey is still the problem. Children are the ones that absorb this garbage and egalitarians can’t even explain their positions.

    Egalitarians assume their critics are racist but some of us are not White nationalists and simply concerned with the course of a nation when it is navigated by child-like adults. These egalitarians have created a race denial fantasy where we Whites and our children are the devil. Mainstream conservatives offer no defense as they reject genetic group inequality as well in favor of race-denial based libertarian ideals (They just need less government/Democrats/unions/etc).

    “transhumanism and the final denial – the denial of mortality”

    … which is to say … as we re-engineer ourselves, are we immortal or non-human? Even the syntax of ‘transhumanism” implies “beyond human” as in “beyond meat”. Do you now perhaps see the meaning?

    If you’d bother to read arrest reports and follow the cases through the courts ( Florida puts them on line ) you’d know simple drug possession doesn’t get you a prison term.

    That is true for nearly all states.

    Libertarians put out this myth of the prisons being filled with drug offenders and it doesn’t go away.

    SF basically legalized possession over a decade ago and their jails are always filled with junkies. Not for drugs but serious crimes like felony assaults.

    There is the problem of junkies not wanting to work and just collect enough money for drugs. So they end up committing other crimes for money or out of boredom. Libertarians don’t have an answer to this problem because they don’t believe that the government should act in the interest of the majority and do what is needed to get rid of the dealers. Why? Cause Rand says so.

    Why so many made a god out of a bitter and deranged woman is the question. Read about her opinions on William Hickman if you think she isn’t deranged.

    I confess to being an egalitarian, however I feel the problem lies in “equal outcomes”. I welcome equal opportunity in a truly free market for talent, drive, capability, perseverance and character (etc.)

    We do not have that in America. We have a perverted version of egalitarianism that seeks to guarantee equal outcomes on the basis of race (and other factors) regardless of any of the qualities mentioned above.

    As an egalitarian, I offer equal opportunity as the solution. Those who demand equal outcomes are not egalitarians. They are self appointed social engineers who seek to play God. For God, or nature, endows individuals with whatever portion of the above qualities they have. And beyond that, as they themselves work to be better at all things valued in a meritocracy, those equal opportunities offer greater reward in a free and just world.

    To artificially “move the needle” of outcomes is a game of virtue confirmation bias for the self aggrandized. It is artificial … a point I have made which continues to resurface. Let nature choose. Egalitarians are reformed Darwinists perhaps.

    Natural selection is divine. Artificial selection is … artificial.

    As for Jews, Blacks or Zionists, I do not see any of these groups as being responsible for “the problem”. I see individuals within these groups as being central to the problem. Individuals such as Schwab, Soros, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Gates, Tedros, Fauci … and probably many others who deem themselves worthy of ruling over countries and their people in a despotic fashion. Of these individuals some may be Jews, blacks or Zionists. Some clearly are not…

    With Jews/Zionists, the perceived right to “rule over countries and their people in a despotic fashion” is dogmatically and institutionally part of their racial/religious “chosen” entitlement and mandate.

    Playing “God” or being the right hand of “God,” if you will, is their divine historical right and obligation, as they are brainwashed and/or self-indoctrinated to believe.

    So we’re dealing with a population here that by its very essence and doctrine is in opposition to the natural world. Hence the violent and mass murderous social engineering of ((Bolshevism)), ((Open Society)), ((Critical Race Theory)), ((Neoconservatism)), Zionism. Even free enterprise capitalism has been warped by the Jewish Fed into fake-capitalism, rigged capitalism.

    Hence Nazism or “Islamofascism” for example as mirror image responses.

    What came first, the chicken or the egg? How long has unnatural, 6,000-year-old-earth insisting Jewishness been around? How many millions of psychopaths has it produced? How many millions of psychopaths have their psychotic actions produced?

When the new date arrives, there are the faithful, waiting on the mountain-top again…’

    In fact, despite the systemic racism and the pathological hate from his ilk, no other racial and ethnic minority in America (with the possible exception of ashkenazi jews) has been as successful as african-americans: not asians, not hispanics, not native americans, not southern europeans, not eastern europeans, not MENA caucasians.

    “The very vaccine that’s one of the two that has absolutely exquisite levels — 94 to 95% efficacy against clinical disease and almost 100% efficacy against serious disease that are shown to be clearly safe — that vaccine was actually developed in my institute’s vaccine research center by a team of scientists led by Dr. Barney Graham and his close colleague, Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, or Kizzy Corbett,” Fauci said.

    Corbett is the National Institute of Health’s lead scientist for coronavirus vaccine research. She is part of a team that worked with the biotechnology company Moderna on one of the two mRNA vaccines expected to receive emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration this month. Pfizer’s vaccine candidate is the other one.

    Most of those students who couldn’t have done well enough on the SAT et al but now get in anyway will find themselves completely unable to meet the expectations imposed on them. They will have an unpleasant and humiliating experience that will leave them more or less embittered for a greater or lesser length of time.

    The core ideology of the ruling class is indeed race denial.

    I don’t think the ruling class has a core ideology.

    There are certain ideological positions to which most members of the ruling class pay lip service. Some of them actually believe in some of these ideological positions. Many members of the ruling class don’t have any ideology at all – they’re simply motivated by greed, the desire for power and opportunism. “What’s in it for me?” does not qualify as an ideology.

    The ruling class is not in any sense a unified coherent group. It’s a miscellaneous bunch of people who are really only united in being members of the ruling class and wanting to remain members of the ruling class.

    Most of the ruling class couldn’t give a damn about race denial or race anything else, except insofar as they see it as a useful thing to advance their own interests.

    There are members of the ruling class who are ideologically driven but they have varying ideological obsessions. Some are obsessed with environmental issues, some are obsessed with pushing the homosexual agenda and/or the trans agenda. Some are obsessed with globalism but globalism means different things to different members of the ruling class – for some it means world government, for some it means global US hegemony, for members of the Military-Industrial Complex it means more opportunities to enrich themselves (for members of the military and foreign policy establishments it means opportunities for career advancement).

    The idea that the ruling class is a unified coherent group with a core ideology is typical of modern far right thinking, which is obsessed with vast conspiracy theories.

    That Universities are now thoroughly corrupt is not the fault of the humanities themselves — although quite a few of its practitioners ARE to blame….& more than a few STEM people too, I’d imagine….

    The idea that some STEM people have become corrupted by the PC movement is very disquieting to me.

    What can get you a prison sentence is to continually violate the terms of your probation either by committing a new violation of the law and or repeatedly failing your drug test.

    This is how lots of people get into prison, for non violent offenses.

    The whole idea of having a law that says you can’t smoke a joint or take some other drug is the problem. There should be no such laws. These are made up crimes and they have consequences.

    If I were on a jury where a drug distributor was on trial, I would have only one question – did he do anything violent or commit a fraud against his customers? If all he did was provide drugs to people that wanted it in a fair exchange, I’d let him off.

    Why are ‘drugs’ different than cabbages? If I sell you a cabbage, there’s no problem. If I sell you a dried up marijuana plant, I’m a bad guy. Doesn’t make sense to me.

    All the drug laws are what the alcohol prohibition laws were decades ago. They were they stupid then and the drug laws are stupid now.

  79. RE: The meaning of the word RACE

    RASA is a primordial Serbian expression for single-tribeness, single-bloodness and single-kinness. This primordial word is preserved in English language in the expression RACE, meaning absolutely the same as in Serbian. It is preserved in many other languages in very similar form and identical meaning as in Serbian. To reiterate: RASA is single-kinness, single-bloodness, single-tribeness.

    [MORE]

    The essence is in the term of number ONE. The for RAS for number 1 is preserved in Russian language in newer form ODIN. In fundamental separation of reality into being and non-being, light and darkness, the term of number one represent: being – light – existence. That is why out of the word RAS (1) evolved the word RAST (growth) as the prime property of being versus non-being. Based on the term of number one the term singularity – uniqueness was built in the sense of originality. The same term viewed from another perspective is the word RAZ-LIKA (difference) built out of word RAS (1 – ONE) and word LIK (image). Because, original and unique is the one who is different from others and RACE is the most obvious and visible difference among people.

    Significant number of scholars consider that RASA originates out of Sanskrit word RASYA which means BLOOD. However, Sanskrit word RASYA originates out of pra-Serbian, pra-European word RASA. Argument for this is that no word BLOOD in German, Romance or Slavic languages is connected to Sanskrit word RASYA. All Slavic words for blood sound similar and have direct connection with word CRVEN (red). While English, German and Scandinavian words representing blood are: BLOOD, BLOD, and BLUT. In Romance languages the forms are SANG or SANGE. Therefore, there is no transfer of word RASYA for blood from India to Europe. Sanskrit is much younger language than the pra-language of Serbian Danubian region and so it is logical that subsequently derived meaning of word RASA meaning BLOOD is rarely found today in India.

    The connection of names Rasani – Raseni (how Etruscans called themselves) with the name of the capital RAS and the name of Serbian medieval state: Raska, must be of direct character and not as intermediate via India.

    The term SRB (Serb) in primordial times was used similarly as the term RASA. SRB represents a connection as family so the parallelism of terms Serbia=Raska is not surprising. Serbs=Rasi=Rasani. All these terms represent people related in blood. The names SRB, which means: cousin, or RASA, which means: my image, my blood, my tribe, could have been used by people of same origin to name themselves. Out of this same root emerged the name of Russia and Russian people who pronounce the name of their country: RAS-SEE-YA. (similarly for Prussia, considering that Prussians are germanised Serbs).

    In sum, the meaning of the word – RACE (i.e. RASA) is the same as the meaning of the word – SERBS.

    Trudeau, I heard, is half Cuban. There are at least some interesting photographs that suggest that this is possible. Momma was cute and very friendly.

    Decades ago, a collegue moved to Texas and was assigned some “introductory” course teaching. He was appalled, as someone who enjoyed teaching, that he must grade on the curve and must fail (as I recall) one third of his students. Texas Universities accepted any graduate of an accredited state high school and then culled the herd during the first two years. I suppose that would not be allowed these days, but decades ago, everyone had a chance. Many went home to a decent job without a degree.

    The argument misses the socialist view of Lamark. A few of our elected worthies think that moving the Ghettocrats to the suburbs in government subsidized housing will allow the species to improve. You don’t need a high IQ to hold a job. The municipality that starts on the next block has been Black-majority since before Illinois Abe took that job in Washington. Decades ago, the architecture included tar-paper wraps although with more insulation than used in that design much further south. With a job, to say nothing of a business or profession, there were places to rent or buy. “Affordable housing” is supposed to cure the problem oif crime and under-performance. The municipalities where those representatives don’t live are the ones expected to provide the “inspiration” to those from the Ghetto. Those neighborhoods are better because they have money. It is inconceivable to our worthies that those people were orderly, cooperative, and had jobs so that they had money. Honkey Privledge or something.

    I helped some “White” friends do a gut rehab of an ancient home in a mixed neighborhood at the opposite edge of that community decades ago. They use the “N”-words alot; Neighbor and Normal. Good schools, good policing (damn parking ticket!), and peaceful back yards. No one wants an influx of Ghettocrats supported by the tax money that could have gone to the schools or to street repair.

    I would agree genetics (races being prominent evidence for genetic speciation within humans), affects physiology, and mentality. East Asians win on IQ, blacks win on some aspects of physiology.

    Are there any studies that discuss race or genetics, with respect to psychology?

    That there are few chess grandmasters who are black, is a question of mentality. Certainly important.

    If we followed your plan, which I agree with entirely , the numbers of illegal immigrants would greatly reduce, and crime would drop dramatically.

    The Horatio Alger myth of the long suffering Mexican and Central American immigrant, washing dishes and eating ramen, needs to die.

    Everyone who does drugs or represents people who do drugs, as I actually do for a living, knows if you want heroin, find a Mexican or Central American. If they don’t sell it, they know someone who does. This is in addition to their drywall job, their $1300 a month in EBT/SNAP cards and their side hustle setting tables and lights up for quinceañeras.

    When you read about shockingly callous and violent crimes that aren’t committed by blacks (who commit a disproportionate number of violence no matter where they land on the globe) they are crimes committed by these same immigrants over drug disputes; don’t sell heroin to my clients, on my street, near my area.

    And contrary to what a poster named Unit wrote, you will most likely go to prison for a first time possession of certain drugs because of the near impossibility of completing felony probation without violating.

    I don’t know if I could do it. Imagine someone with the temperament of Adam Schiff/Mitch McConnel or a Michael Eric Dyson- a busy body scold sadist with control issues- – having the power to drop in at your home and sniff around and see what they can find to violate you. Add in fines, random drug pops, stupid classes and curfews- you are going to violate unless you have a lawyer who will beat them back and can intimidate the Judge.

It was the federal government and federal courts (they had to – if they didn’t, “integration” would have been still-born because blacks couldn’t measure up in anything they attempted, across the board – actually, segregation was a protection of black people because it insolated them against their overall failure you see today) who interfered with the internal workings of the Trades and the occupations at large who are responsible for what you see today. I agree with what you say about the teachers as well (yes, they’re dumb but that’s what the government wants – dummies), but again, it’s not the teachers fault.

    Thanks for the profound comment, Roacheforque. I’d taken Derb’s neat essay for just another common-sense putdown of an illogical, doubtless politically driven, cult of “race denial”. But you suddenly provide an appropriately larger philosophical framework for what at first seemed to be a pretty simple matter:

    Thus, the true problem with race denial (or race elimination) is the elimination of natural, cultural, social and ethnic diversity – and then to go even further against the natural world with transhumanism and the final “denial” – the denial of mortality.

    This now rings a bell. About ten years ago a friend asked me to critique a book by someone named Ray Kurzweil, an AI computer geek predicting an eventual marriage of humans and cyber machinery in our future. I thought he was sampling too many mushrooms. Or maybe he had mistaken the heroic, almost-human computer of Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress for non-fiction.

    My take on AI and computers, smart or dumb, remains “garbage in, garbage out”. But just to be sure I wasn’t missing something, I tried reading Transhumanism: a grimoire of alchemical agendas by J.P. Farrell and Dr. Scott D. de Hart. This failed to impress me with post-modern transhumanism notions but it did succeed in pigeonholing this cultish fad into the age-old class of paranormal traditionss from Paracelsus back to the Mayan Popol Vul legend and Rig Vedas.

    I’m sure you are onto something when you call the reappearance of such weird stuff today an attempt to peel back natural, cultural, social and ethnic diversity and ultimately to repeal nature’s dictate of mortality — an appealing goal for many. In cosmology, a big distinction between inanimate matter and living things is that life seems to come with an explosion of complexity. Maybe we are really just witnessing here a quixotic revolt against our own complexity. And paradoxically it is now being promoted not as religion but under the banner of “science”.

    The humanities exist in a sad state, yes. Take the Classics faculty at Holy Cross (https://www.holycross.edu/academics/programs/classics/faculty-staff): older professors list bland things like “Greek and Roman history” as their fields. The younger write “human landscapes of ancient Italy; gender in antiquity and its reception; constructions of memory in Roman culture”. Whatever that means!

    But I’ve lost track of the times I’ve tried to have a conversation with a pure science person who I thought was a complete idiot. They’re missing something, a lot of these people. I mean, how many of them really get to the edge of knowledge of some field, and then start thinking on their own? A dumb science grad is just as bad as a dumb liberal arts grad. It’s how you get arguments like, “Because SCIENCE.”

    But take the piano, for instance. Where do the seven white keys in the octave come from? It’s a question every five-year-old asks, the answer to which involves 2500 years of history! Learning that history involves multiple languages and multiple successive mathematical theories (you’d never guess what “superbipartiens tertias” means: the proportion 5 to 3, or the major sixth, which sounds fine on the piano, but AWFUL on an organ diapason stop). And then consider the task of teaching that to a child, who has, for perhaps the only time in his life, genuine curiosity about a purely musical matter! I mean, I don’t argue that most teachers just punt on this entirely, but when you get a great teacher of the humanities, you also get an Oscar Wilde, or Clara Schumann, or Jeremy Bentham!

    The idea that the ruling class is a unified coherent group with a core ideology is typical of modern far right thinking, which is obsessed with vast conspiracy theories.

    There are some differences among the top 1%, but much less than among the rest of us. The main factor seems to be knowledge of English. Among those who read mostly in English, and who are just above-average in intelligence, the political thinking is very homogeneous.

    That’s a reflection of mainstream reading material. Go to any regular bookstore. Do you see a diversity of political opinions? Pick up a newspaper. Almost any newspaper. Do you see a diversity of opinions?

    I see some ideological diversity among elites who have a superficial knowledge of English. I also see some among the highly intelligent and/or semi-autistic — the sort of people who by nature tend to form eccentric opinions. But such people are few in number.

    On the issue of “race,” the elites throughout the English-speaking world are overwhelmingly antiracist — because that’s the ideological norm. Here and there, a few elite individuals think differently, but they’re not the norm.

    As for Derb, I don’t think he’s “obsessed with race.” In another age, he would have been considered a rootless cosmopolitan. Why not just say he has opinions you disagree with? Or is that a level of intellectual maturity you’re incapable of? Why do you want to personalize this argument?

    “Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
    Who never to himself hath said,
    This is my own, my native land.”
    – Walter Scott

    One.

    Some time in the second half of the 1990s, a terminological change occurred in the racially conscious community.

    Many who previously identified themselves as White Power advocates, segregationists, separatists, supremacists, survivalists, neo-Confederates, biological realists, etc. started calling themselves “white nationalists.”

    At the time (and I didn’t know much about these things then), I thought this reflected a changing political consciousness.

    For what began after 1945 as a “movement” to maintain the integrity of America’s racial character and prevent alien races from intruding into its various “life worlds” had, by the 1990s, ceased to be a realistic project — 30 years of Third-World immigration, “civil rights” legislation, and various measures imposed by the federal government to subordinate white interests to those of nonwhites had irrevocably transformed the American people so that it was increasingly difficult to characterize them as even a majority-white population.

    As a consequence, “white advocates” in the late 1990s started making traditional nationalist claims for secession and self-determination because the United States, in their eyes, had become a threat to their people.

    Two.

    This interpretation was not at all unreasonable. But, alas, it didn’t quite accord with the facts.

    I’ve since learned that those calling themselves “white nationalists” are not necessarily nationalists in the sense of wanting to secede from the United States in order to form an independent ethnostate. Most, I think it’s fair to say, are racially conscious conservatives who want to work through the existing institutions to regain control of the country their ancestors made — in order, ultimately, to dismantle the present anti-white system of preferences and restore something of the white man’s former hegemony.

    By contrast, white nationalists in the strict sense (i.e., those favoring secession) have no interest in restoring the old ways, let alone regaining control of the central state, whose authority is already slipping and whose rule is increasingly dysfunctional. Indeed, the American state system, as its more astute supporters acknowledge, is now beyond reform.

    Instead, white nationalists aspire to create a counter-elite to lead disaffected white youth in a movement to found a whites-only nation-state somewhere in North America, once the poorly managed enterprise known as the United States collapses in a centrifugal dispersion of its decaying and perverted powers.

    Without an organizational presence in the real world and with a “public” largely of computer hobbyists, white nationalists at present have no hope of actually mobilizing the white populace in opposition to the existing anti-white regime. Rather, their immediate goal is to prepare the way for the development of a revolutionary nationalist vanguard to lead the struggle for white liberation. They aspire thus not to recapture the rotting corpse of the US government, but to free themselves from it — in order to be themselves, in their own land, in their own way.

    White nationalists, as such, politically define themselves in wanting to create a sovereign state in North America. They endeavor, therefore, not to “put things back the way they were,” as conservatives wish, but to rid themselves of them completely.

    A National Revolution, they hold, will alone restore “the white man to his rightful place in the world.”

    Inspired by the birthright handed down by the blood and sacrifice of ancestors, their project, relatedly, is not about restoring the Third Reich, the Confederacy, or Jim Crow, as leftists imagine, but about creating a future white homeland in which their kind will be able “to pursue their destiny without interference from other races.”

    Three.

    White nationalism is a variant of historic ethnonationalism, what Walker Connor calls nationalism “in its pristine sense.”

    All three — racial, ethno, and pristine nationalism — define the nation in terms of blood.

    The creedal or civic nationalism of the present regime, which makes loyalty to the state, not the nation, primary, is “nationalist” only in a narrow ideological sense, confusing as it does patriotism (loyalty to the state or affection for the land) with loyalty to the people (nationalism). It thus defines the nation in terms of certain abstract democratic principles, seeing it as a collection of individuals, each more important than the whole.

    Though ethnonationalists privilege the nation’s spirit above all else, they nevertheless define it organically, in terms of blood, as an extended family, an endogamous kin group, or a genetic commonwealth.

    Unlike European nations, formed around long-established ethnic cores (which had developed in the Middle Ages, as Germanic and other tribal confederations evolved into larger political, regional, and cultural identities), American national identity was, historically, defined in explicitly racial terms.

    As Sir Arthur Keith characterized it: “In Europe the stock has been broken up into local national breeds; in America the local breeds have been reunited.”

    In both cases, a national identity grew out of a real or imagined blood relationship linking the nation’s members to inherited customs and institutions.

    Because the American form of racial nationhood lacks the ethnic dimension distinct to European nationalism, it is a source of some misunderstanding, especially in its purely negative expression as anti-Semitism or Negrophobia.

    For example, even Euronationalists who struggle for a continental nation-state tend to reject white nationalism — because it seems to imply the typical American leveling of cultural and other identities by subsuming them under a homogenizing biological concept that negates the particularisms of European nationhood and subjects them to Anglo-American hegemony.

    In this, however, our European cousins misunderstand the aim of white nationalism, though some white nationalists in their one-sided reaction to nonwhites may, admittedly, have given cause to their misunderstanding.

    White nationalism is a distinctly American (or, better said, New World) nationalism, not a European one, and the two are analogous only at the highest level, where the national community, defined ethnically or racially, affirms it right to control its own destiny.

    This is not to say that American racial nationalism — which makes white European racial ascriptions the basis of American identity — has no ethnic or historic component.

    The country’s original settlers were largely of Anglo-Protestant descent and this had a formative effect on American institutions and folkways.

    The organic basis of the American nation, however, was less English ethnicity than “whiteness.”

    Even before the War of Independence (the first American war of secession), more than a quarter of the population was of non-English, mainly North European stock: Scots-Irish, German, Dutch, French Huguenots, etc. By about the mid-eighteenth century, the “American English” were increasingly referred to as “Americans,” a people “selected by a whole series of ordeals which [had] killed off the weak and worthless” and conferred a distinct vitality on their laws, attitudes, and local institutions

    The bitterness of the War of Independence and the War of 1812, US-British acrimony and rivalry, which lasted late into the 19th century, in addition to the nationalist compulsion to celebrate an American identity independent of the English — all tended to minimize the significance of the colonists’ original national origins, as they were reborn as pure Americans. In fact, American nationalism arose on the basis of a certain popular revulsion against the English.

    Nevertheless, English-Americans were the original native Americans, and all the rest of us have since become American by assimilating something of the ethos derived from their unique genos.

    Though Anglo-Protestant ethnicity continues to animate the inner reaches of American culture, it wasn’t, however, the genotypical basis of American identity. Rather, it was the racial experience of transplanted Englishmen in seventeenth-century Virginia, then the “exotic far western periphery . . . of the metropolitan European cultural system.”

    In the New World part of this system, the ever-looming presence of African slaves, considered “by nature vicious and morally inferior,” and “savage” red Indians, who posed an ongoing threat, could not but foster an acute racial consciousness.

    Given that economic opportunities, vast expanses of virgin land, and new fortunes prevented the old European social hierarchies from forming, these racial bearings acted as the one fixed hierarchy ordering colonial life.

    Forged, thus, in conflict with nonwhites, the colonists’ early racial consciousness served to mark the boundaries of the emerging American identity. The historian Winthrop Jordan claims that “Anglo-Americans” were already identifying themselves as “whites” rather than “Englishmen” as early as 1680.

    National or ethnic differences in this racially mixed environment were simply less meaningful than differences between Europeans and non-Europeans.

    These differences were institutionalized when the American colonists declared their independence, for they declared in effect their intent to become a self-determined people in the evolutionary sense, by becoming a nation, an organic body with its own sovereign state and its own laws of growth.

    Then, following the revolution, as republican principles were gradually extended to all white males, the country’s Herrenvolk democracy posed an insurmountable obstacle to the extension of these principles to nonwhites — for the new, explicitly white nation was based not on the liberal fiction of “humanity,” but on the assumption that human nature is a product of blood and race.

    Indeed, the white egalitarianism of the early republic, shaped largely in opposition to the Toryism of anglophile Federalists (who represented the bourgeois interests of liberal market society and its connection to British commerce) was premised on the Negro’s otherness and the primacy of white racial ascriptions, all of which further contributed to the nation’s self-consciousness, coherence, and communality, as British and European Americans, largely under the leadership of Indian-fighting, pro-slavery, and expansionist Southerners, came to share not just the same horizontal sense of right and identity, but the same vertical qualities and dignities of their stock.

    Different in ways from ethnicity, race formed the psychological bonds that joined American whites and differentiated them from nonwhites, just as the language, customs, and early institutions of the original Anglo-Protestant settlers established the cultural-linguistic framework in which white Americans became a self-conscious nation.

    Four.

    The ethnogenic process that gradually imposed a common culture and identity on the former colonists, as they became Virginians and New Englanders, and more generally, Americans, was interrupted in the 1840s by the mass influx of Irish and German Catholics — the former seen almost as an alien race. Then, in the late 19th century, this was followed by a second great immigrant wave, from Southern and Eastern Europe.

    Today the Third World invasion is taking the ethnogenic process to a new extreme, as the state, with its inorganic definition of the nation, endeavors to “transcend” the perennially white, Christian character of the American people for the sake of its oxymoronic “universal nation.”

    At each nodal point in this demographic transformation, except the most recent, native Americans, however resistant to the newcomers, succeeded in assimilating them on the basis of their racial ascriptions, as the Anglo-Protestant character of American identity became progressively more “ecumenical.”

    Indeed, it’s increasingly difficult today to talk of “hyphenated-Americans,” given that the different European ethnic strains making up the white population have so extensively intermarried that many now no longer know their ethnic origins. As one historian writes: “Ellis Island whiteness” has come to replace “Plymouth Rock whiteness.”

    But there were obvious limits to assimilation. As Woodrow Wilson put it: “We cannot make a homogeneous population of a people who do not blend with the Caucasian race.” Against this view, many “new,” especially Jewish immigrants, advanced the cause for greater ethnic diversity, as if America’s vocation was to become a boardinghouse to all the world’s peoples. The Old America, though, would have none of this, and, in Stoddard’s words, dismissed such claims with the insistence “that America is basically ‘made’ — and that it shall not be unmade.”

    When the post-1945 National Security State, armed with its newly acquired “mandate of heaven,” endeavored to turn Roosevelt’s liberal-managerial state system into a world empire, premised on the belief that it was based on an idea, not a people, it launched what amounted to an assault on America’s historic identity — an assault whose overarching aim has been to undermine the population’s racial consciousness and promote ethnocidal practices facilitating its “demographic” reconstitution. The state’s “anti-racism” came thus to serve as an instrument of its social engineers, who sought to turn whites into herds of “tamed sheep [who] care not in which flock [they] are driven.”

    It was only natural, then, that once the shearing got under way the most racially conscious whites began to see themselves as an oppressed nation in need of their own sovereign state.

    Five.

    Racial conservatives have offered numerous criticisms of nationalists advocating secession from the United States. The most common of these — made in a period which has witnessed successful secessionist movements (in the former SU, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, etc.), as well as other popular movements resisting a despotic, leveling centralization in the name of regionalism, devolution, and the defense of historic identities — is that the prospect of creating a white ethnostate in North America free of the United States is totally unrealizable . . . a fantasy . . . pure and utter folly.

    But this, they fail to realize, is hardly criticism at all.

    For those with the courage of their convictions, it’s never a matter of calculating the odds and going with the winning side, but of doing what needs to be done — like that Roman soldier of Pompeii cited by Spengler in Man and Technics, whose Aryan sense of duty kept him at his post, as Vesuvius exploded in fire.

    Six.

    Viewed “objectively,” neither secession nor a white conservative reconquest has a chance, not one in a universe of infinite possibilities. Both are figments of a few white minds troubled by the prospect of their people’s imminent demise.

    But that’s the way all great movements begin.

    If a presently unattainable ideal is not first articulated as a mythic possibility, it remains unrealized, for its idealization is part of the process that quickens its realization.

    In 1774, only a few believed in American independence. After 1776 it was a critical mass.

    Secession, as such, cannot be submitted to the usual criticism, for it’s not a fact or even an idea so much as it is a way of being — or a wanting to be.

    Central to its realization, therefore, is not the objective forces opposing it, but the subjective will seeking its triumph.

    Many things, of course, would have to change before either secession or reconquest become remotely realizable (though our postmodern age, the Kali Yuga of the Traditionalists, is an age in which time and events have greatly accelerated, as all things hurtle toward the inevitable crackup, the Ragnarok, which precedes every rebirth).

    The thought, nevertheless, of whites breaking free of the United States, in this period when the multi-cult empire has experienced the first of its death agonies, seems, from a secessionist perspective, somewhat less of a fantasy than trying to reform it, which sixty years of experience suggest is unreformable.

    Seven.

    Almost every criticisms that can be made of secession is to be found in Sam Francis’s “Prospects for Racial and Cultural Survival” (1995).
    Sam, who I have paid high tribute to in the pages of this journal, was an important transitional figure in the development of a white nationalist outlook.

    Though one of his feet was solidly planted in the white nationalist camp, the other, however, was never quite freed from his former “new right” and paleocon beliefs. Divided, his critique of secession reflected an old-fashioned patriotism unwilling to break from the US — though, perhaps, if he had lived, he might feel differently, now that the dusky helmsman has begun steering the ship of state perilously close to the shoals of what promises to be an even more horrendous fate.

    As an anti-secessionist, Sam considered separation from the United States tantamount to surrender — surrender of the country our ancestors created, surrender of its history, traditions, interests.

    But Sam was wrong.

    Secessionists surrender nothing but the slow death of their people. For among other things, secession is about survival — and the prospect of being able to fight another day.

    To do that, one must live. But where, how?

    For all practical purposes whites have lost the United States. Though still a near majority, we are surrounded by armed forces seeking our destruction; we are running out of ammunition, and the ground troops are being ordered in to clean up the remaining pockets of resistance. It looks as if we’re doomed.

    Secession is a way of avoiding the deadly pincers closing in on white life.

    In the last sixty years, absolutely NOTHING — not one little thing — has been accomplished to interrupt the programmed destruction of European America.

    Nevertheless, the critics of secession drone on: “Why give up the country when you can take it back?”

    These two-fisted patriots who think this is the most powerful argument against secession are likely to be singing the same song in the not too distanced future, when colored novelists start writing about “The Last of the Europeans.”

    But even if feasible, what self-respecting white man would want to take back the United States, this monstrous, bureaucratic Leviathan whose Jewish, race-mixing, homophile, feminist, fraudulent, anti-Christian, and degenerate practices stand as an affront to everything his ancestors stood for.

    The hard truth is that it’s gotten to the point where the US can no longer be defended as “my mother, drunk or sober,” only repulsed as an alien body-snatcher.

    To this end, secessionists emulate the proud Danes, who said after the loss of Schleswig-Holstein in 1865, that “What has been lost externally will be gained internally.”

    But more than refusing to abide the state responsible for their dispossession, secessionists see this “abomination of desolation” as their principal enemy. Only by freeing themselves from it and acquiring their own land under their own sovereignty do they see a future for their kind.

    One might call this “surrendering large parts of the country to nonwhites” — though these aliens already occupy large parts of it and will continue to do so until whites are completely replaced.

    The secessionists’ ultimate consideration, then, is not what will be lost, but what gives whites the best chance to survive.

    “Any proposal for separation,” Sam argued, “would simply alienate the most patriotic and nationalist loyalties of American whites and lead them to see separatists as un-American.” Most whites would also “refuse to abandon their allegiance to the US or forsake its territory.”

    Here Sam confused loyalty to the state with loyalty to the nation, paying tribute, in effect, to Caesar in his own coin. Given the logic of his argument, one might question what his position would have been in 1774, when secession from the Mother Country was originally proposed? Or what his position would be if the United States should start following in the footsteps of the former Soviet Union? And, finally, one wonders how patriotic most Americans are going to be once they discover that their grandchildren will be paying off the debts of the present US government — at a time when American citizenship will probably be little more than a form of Chinese peonage.

    Secessionists don’t care if most whites would refuse to abandon “their” country. “Most” whites, de-Ayranized as they are, allowed a Negro to become president.

    Only those who care for their kind and are willing to fight for them can possibly found a new nation.

    The flag-waving, Constitution-worshipping types — who know nothing outside the ideology of liberal democracy, old (“conservative”) or new (“progressive”), and who believe that there is something sacred about the unholy United States — will never be mobilized for the sake of “racial preservation”; that ship has sailed.

    In secessionist eyes, it’s better to lose a bit of territory and shed the race’s detritus than to lose whatever remains of the white nation — especially in view of the coming age, which is certain to be filled with cascading catastrophes, set off by the imploding contradictions of liberalism’s dystopian regime.

    In the context of such a possible secession, Sam wondered how the races could possibly be separated and what would prevent them from “unseparating.” Here again he didn’t see what was coming. Since the end of the Second World War there have been numerous population transfers by partitioned states (the most important of which were sanctioned by the US). These transfers occurred in the recent past, will undoubtedly occur again, and already occur in little ways every day in the US, as the relocation of nonwhites forces whites out of their neighborhoods.

    Secession implies both population transfers and territorial partition — historically justifiable measures, sanctioned by US precedent, and executable with a minimum of force, unlike the pipe dreams of anti-secessionists, whose imagined “reconquest” would be of a state with a hundred million nonwhite citizens, all with their hands out.

    In its desire for cheap labor, Sam thought a separate white nation, would simply repeat the process that got whites into the present mess — as if the struggle for secession (and all it will entail) wouldn’t lead to an explicitly racial definition of nationality, to an inversion of the market’s primacy, and to a spiritual triumph over the materialism that has corrupted so many whites.

    As a conservative, he couldn’t see that white secession (unlike the secession of the Confederacy) is a revolutionary project premised on a rejection not just of the illegal alienations of the federal government, but of the entire social, economic, and moral order sustaining its ethnocidal rule.

    A white breakaway state, Sam also claimed, would be surrounded by hostile powers, vulnerable to invasion, and unable to defend itself against the rising demographic tide outside its borders. Again, these are non-criticisms. Any region seceded from the United States would have all the resources necessary for its survival. More crucially, the racially homogenous populace of a seceded white republic would be imbued with the nationalist fervor and irrepressible convictions that are the inevitable offshoots of newly forged nations.

    To think that a mutilated United States, with its warring racial factions, welfare politics, and rubber-spine army would be able to crush an armed, autonomous white republic is to abandon the realm of logic. Even at the height of its expansionist powers, National Socialist Germany never thought of invading tiny, mountainous Switzerland, where every citizen was armed and ready to defend his nation. The US Army, need it be said, is no Wehrmacht.

    Eight.

    European Americans will not survive many more generations under the present regime.

    Racially-conscious conservatives are counting on a future white backlash to mobilize in defense of white interests. Through such a mobilization, and a much talked about, though little practiced, “march through the institutions,” they hope to raise white racial consciousness, counter the demographic threat posed by nonwhites, and introduce political and legal reforms to curtail nonwhite power — all of which, of course, are totally desirable.

    But they expect to arrive at this Utopia without explaining how they would counter a population half of which will be nonwhite in 33 years (2042); without explaining how they would challenge a government that criminalizes white dissent; without explaining how a system can be fundamentally changed without fundamentally changing the institutions and powers that govern it and make it what it is; without any of these things, racial conservatives mock the notion of secession, as if their own not particularly successful project is the sole conceivable alternative.

    Nine.

    Unlike their critics, secessionists have a plan, a simple, straightforward one, that offers whites an alternative to an unreformable system and an inescapable death.

    This plan has the advantage of being (a) eminently political, (b) based on proven historical precedents, and (c) imbued with the power to generate a will to nationhood.

    Given the increasingly totalitarian nature of the existing system, where the mere mention of “race” can be taken as an incitement to crimes against humanity, this aspect of secession, ought, perhaps, to be discussed in historical rather than explicitly programmatic terms.

    Much of the history of European nationalism speaks to the American situation today, especially (in my admittedly partisan view) Irish nationalism.

    In the 1870s and ’80s, a generation after the An Gorta Mor (the Great Hunger), revolutionary and conservative nationalists agreed to be allies in the common struggle for Irish nationhood. The revolutionary Fenians, preeminently in the form of Michael Davitt’s Land League, which led the rebellion in the countryside, gave the constitutionalists in Parnell’s Irish Parliamentary Party the social leverage to force concessions from the English at Westminster — concessions that eventually won back many Irish lands. Then, once the constitutionalists had gone as far as they could, by about 1912 or 1914, the revolutionary, physical-force wing of Irish nationalism took over, completing the nationalist project.

    We American secessionists want whatever works best for the future of our people. If our “constitutionalists,” perhaps in the form of a third party, can create dissension and vulnerability among the “English” in a way that promotes American interests, they are to be supported. But if they should fail, others are likely to turn, as did the Irish, to the methods of Connelly and Pearse.

    Those who know Hibernian — or any other European — nationalist history also know the immeasurable power of the nation, especially the nation rising to nationhood.

    This is the spirit we secessionists hope to stir in white Americans.

    The situation today may be totally grim, but politically there is no more feasible or marketable of strategies to awaken our people, especially as they become aware of their approaching minority status and all it implies.

    Imagine, then, for a moment, a white homeland in North America, free of the alien-dominated US government, with its colored multitudes and parasitic institutions: In my mind, this one image says everything, explains everything, promises everything.

    The powerful imagery of an autonomous white nation also possesses the mythic potential that the General Strike has in the thought of Georges Sorel.

    All great movements, Sorel saw, are driven not by rational arguments or party programs, but by their myths (which “are not descriptions of things, but expressions of a determination to act”).

    For it is myth — and the memories and hopes animating it — that shape a nation, that turn a “motley horde” into a people with a shared sense of purpose and identity, that mobilize them against the state of things, and prepare them for self-sacrifice and self-rule.

    A Sovereign Independent State, as the Irish called it in 1916 — the White Republic, as I call it — is the secessionist myth, symbolizing the determination of white men to assert themselves as a free people somewhere in an all-white America.

    But more importantly, extreme leftist race denial is merely one observable tactic toward their ultimate goal of race elimination. It is clear that the “open society” concept attempts to blend races and cultures into a single monoculture . . . .

    No. This is wrong. They are shooting for the opposite: billions of disconnected atoms.

    You are right. One should be able to go into the convenience store and buy the dope of your choice. If a person care not a whit that they are ingesting a drug made with battery acid or kerosene or such then go for it.

    I remember when the “war” on drugs started I would see headlines like this:
    -March- 5 tons of cocaine seized, cops say major dent in cartel operations
    -May- 10 toms of cocaine seized , cops say major dent in cartel operations
    -June 50 tons of cocaine seized, cops say drug lords severely damaged

    These days the law is intercepting whole ships, submersibles and air craft with hundreds of tons and these seizures represent a fraction of the product getting through. We no longer read these dramatic headlines about dents in the cartel operations.

    The problem is that America has the largest population of dopers in the world from the most elite individuals to the skid row denizens. As well, everyone in every country, directly and indirectly benefit from the drug trade. Even the forces of law and order world wide, here in the US too, are getting a cut of the action.

    Where that much money is concerned this “war” is a forever one. Also, as I told one friend who is a bit naive about the whole thing if every cartel and criminal drug gang were all wiped out at 6 am on a particular day, at 6.01 am they would all be replaced and it would be business as usual.

    Too many people here in the US benefit and a whole lot benefit in Latin America from repatriated drug dollars and the businesses and related employment they finance. Cut all that out and what we consider a flood of refugees now would seem like a trickle compared to the hordes that would storm the US/ MEX border.

    The drug war is Frankenstein’s monster but with a twist. It busted a cap in Frank and reproduces itself…..endlessly.

    Finally Pharma dope, cigarettes and alcohol (all legal to acquire) kill more people than the tokers, lokers and snorters with the habit. What is good for the goose should be good for the gander.

    So, you’re saying that studying the humanities is not relevant to higher education? That universities would be richer learning environments if only we limited coursework to STEM subjects?

    What kind of clod are you?

    We already have colleges which deal (relatively) exclusively with STEM subjects. They’re called Technical Schools.

    I don’t know what to say to someone who is so goofy as to think that studying history, psychology and philosophy is somehow a waste of time, or worthless.

    Either you get it or you don’t.

    And don’t bother refuting me by calling me math disabled. I enjoyed my engineering classes as much as I did Classical history, philosophy, science and drama. They were equally enlightening.

    Having said that, I agree with you that the American education system does a poor job of educating citizens about science. Pathetic in fact. But the solution isn’t to rid the schools of the humanities. Most citizens know no more about them than they do science ,so it’s not as though study of the humanities is what detracts from expertise in science.

    Modern secular progressivism requires the triumph of theory over reality. Whenever one of the cherished theories or nostrums of the progressives runs into conflict with reality, reality must lose. Racial matters are but one of the theoretical areas, but this strong preference for theory over reality exists in all cases (for example, the insistence that genitalia have no bearing on gender).

    This is totally disarming, because how does one combat this or seek to correct it? What can be done? You cannot argue from empirical evidence, from history or experience, from logic, religion or philosophy. It will all be ignored.

    This is a dangerous situation because progressives, having severed the healthy and necessary “feedback loops” with reality, are untethered to reality and drift ever more into the fog. There’s no pulling them back. They will keep denying reality until their madcap balloon adventure ends in tragedy.

    God started it, and only God can end it. But here’s a red pill for you: while Jews are opposed to all men and opposed to God’s will, engaged in political and social subversion, they do God’s will, because it’s God’s will to subvert and destroy human nations, even morally-centered human nations.

    If you’re wondering why Jews are so overly zealous about their perceived right to rule over others, so firmly entrenched in their doctrine of racial superiority, it is indeed because the direct experience of God in the early days of Hebrew society in their political, social, and cultural life left an indelible mark on their psyche. While they are no longer “God’s chosen people” and have in fact been cut off from God, the sense of entitlement will not cease to percolate from one generation to the next. The “Judaism project,” as it were, was conceived by God and built to last. Having fulfilled its purpose in Christ, it no longer has the mandate of God but still retains the legacy of God’s influence, as manifested in Jewish in-group preference, high verbal ability, and other abilities demonstrated by Jews. This is simply a function of the fact that when the Supreme Intelligence of the universe puts his mind to something (in this case, the establishment of a nation), the result is guaranteed to be of the highest quality. A nation that is fallen from God yet continues to exercise worldly power is just one among many of the manifestation of Satan’s power, the others being Islam, atheistic China, animistic cults in thirld-world nations, and many more. (when Satan tempted Christ in the wilderness, he offered Christ all the kingdoms of the world, implying that he ruled over all the nations of the world. While Christ did not bow down to Satan, he didn’t deny the fact that Satan is the temporary ruler of this world (Israel, USA, China, and yes, Russia too). But even Satan is God’s lapdog, just as Jewish activities, as subversive and destabilizing they may seem from the perspective of religious and even upright non-religious people, ultimately are the will of God – yup, I hate to tell you this, it’s kind of a red pill – God uses Jews as subversive agents to undermine the pride and ego of nations and ethnic groups so that they don’t become so full of themselves as to think they don’t need God. It is God who brings destruction, tragedy, and evil to this world.

    Some Jews (probably a minority) may still believe that they are God’s chosen people in a religious sense, others may pretend to not believe in “chosenness” in a religious sense while secretly believing it on some level, and still many other Jews will dismiss such religious notions while still believing in their innate genetic supremacy (as opposed to religious supremacy), thereby substituting the Jewish ethnos for God, thereby making themselves unto God. And even those who don’t consciously believe in any kind of supremacy whatsoever will still continue to struggle with the mindset of entitlement.

    [MORE]

    I’ll try to put it in more secular terms, using the same arguments that Nietzsche used for Christianity. While it may be the case that “God is dead” as far as Jewish spirituality goes, the entire God-centered Judaic religious framework remains in place in the Jewish psyche. Likewise, as much as many former Westerners might fancy themselves enlightened atheists and rationalists, on some level, their understanding of and interaction with the world continues to be mediated through the Christian worldview and a distinctly Christian spirituality.

    But don’t despair. Because God is going to end this madness. Just as Judaism reaches its peak power in this world, just as it reaches the height of its blasphemy against God, then the One whom they crucified will return. It will be the perfect ending to the drama of human history. Christian Zionists are not wrong in their end times zeal, except they’ve ended up bowing to the Anti-Christ, which is identified with the City of Seven Hills (i.e. Jerusalem –> World Jewry). This is what Scripture predicted – even among the “elect,” there would be many who would fall away. Just as it predicted that one could not buy and sell (i.e. engage in commerce, become successful in worldly terms, etc.) unless one was spiritually compromised by embracing the Judaic order (i.e. the “Mark of the Beast,” not a computer chip embedded in your skin, but a spiritual submission to the Anti-Christ). As far as pro-China people are concerned, the majority of Han Chinese (just like secular Westerners) are going to hell – pure and simple. Fortunately, there are many among them who have faith and are struggling to teach their compatriots the word of God.

    I am impressed with how many dissidents and nationalists, such as Nazis, despite not being Christians, are able to correctly identify the Anti-Christ while many Christians sadly are not. These Nazis and atheists are also going to hell, but at least they understand who the Anti-Christ is. The end is nigh! In the meantime, you have responsibility to watch over your own soul and repent, looking forward to the world that is to come. It is not enough to simply complain and moan about Jewish dominance in the world. Christians and non-Muslims moan about their condition under Islamic rule.
    Tibetan Buddhists and Christians moan and groan about their condition under atheistic Chinese rule. Westerns moan and groan about their condition under perverse Judaic authority. Moaning and groaning, however, does not help your soul. It does not give you righteousness and make you a good person. Complaining about evil and wickedness does not make you good. You have to put your life in order and repent.

    As far as Jews go, the way is open for them to seek repentance as well. They are not condemned by virtue of being Jewish. Neither are Chinese, Muslims, etc. No one can choose what kind of spiritual and metaphysical system they are born into in this world – but everyone can choose to repent and turn to God.

    No. I lived in Haiti. People there are quick-witted, and renowned to be so among the other West-Indies. Speaking of IQ there are popular games like Crick-Crack that resemble IQ testing a lot by their types of question, like finding the odd guy in a series of people or things, like finding out analogies. Games of military strategy, both home-made or on computers, are popular even among the down-trodden, as ever self-respecting male fancies himself as a potential president. The problem with IQ assessment among Blacks has more to do with the medium than with the message : if you force them to pass written tests you may end up with such low scores as 72 because in reality most people just don’t have the patience to sit down and ponder on anything written longer than 140 characters, like Trump, which doesn’t mean the latter is not cunning and clever, though one may object he is only when it comes to steal money or commit some other like misdeed or mischief. But if you submit the very same questions to the examinees orally as a kind of game like Crick-Crack, the mean result is the same as for most anglo-saxon or French whites and sometimes even better. The problem, like with Trump, is that all those IQ points can contribute only to misdeeds, mischief or practical jokes, or beautiful books that will never have any positive impact on economic growth. It has more to do with contents of character. The problem is that this quick-wittedness in Haiti is acquired not so much through study than first through contact with occult forces (and then only through more conventional study) we perfectly know not to be conducive to any chance of development.

    Thank you sir for seeing where I was going with this. Kurzweil and Heinlein are favorites. I would bet you were a reader of Omni in those years as well.

    Interestingly, science “fiction” of the past (including Huxley and Orwell) does intersect with the present day degeneracy of what I see as a movement to both redefine and obscure “slavery”. Think about it, a monoculture, raceless, genderless class that “owns nothing and is happy”. This we may see realized in the coming generations. Our colleges have done the conditioning for decades.

    And it will be left to us to determine the comparative quality of a life of state monitored obedience, compliance and “selflessness” with immediate reward for “correct thoughts and actions”, but suspension of privileges for “incorrect thought and action”.

    Google, through Microsoft, has patented the technology to connect nonoparticle equipped transhumans to the Cloud through 5G. Such nanobiometrics as Novovax describes in quite detail at its website. WO2020 060606 A1 is the patent. Do Google it. And yes, occultists do use Revelation references in modern day theatrics. But this is actual 15 million merits stuff, of the Black Mirror kind.

    Christians have fallen from God too and followed the Jews as applauders of the killing of Christ, to the point of overtaking the Jews in perversion and taking the lead : that has been predicted by so many seers of long ago. In the US the most evil aspect of Zionism stems from Evangelism, not the Jews proper. Had it been only for the latter there would not have been any Reagan phenomenon, the New Deal values would still be the order of the day, with more gays and hippies. You are right though in condemning Christians who bemoan about their riches being taken by Jews : had they been real Christians, they would have been too poor for Jews to rob them (Jews don’t attack Amish), actually they first got prosperous by submitting to some form of Judaism and fell into economic disgrace by not even conforming to elementary Jewish values, like fighting for a better world in workers’ unions or elsewhere.

    I wonder what kind of policeman Gascon was, and if he harbored these ideas about crime-fighting while riding in a squad car.

  115. The way that black and Latino people raise their children also has to be examined. When a black man is killed by police, his mother always says “he was a good boy” even though he has a long rap sheet. Didn’t George Floyd’s mother say he was good even though he held a gun on a pregnant woman in her own home? I’m not sure how much this has to do with race as much as it does with culture and the Protestant work ethic which is NOT imparted to certain groups.

    “the decriminalization of crime is a nationwide trend. ”

    To the extent we’re talking ‘crime’ which harms no person or property other than the ‘criminal’ himself, I say good. We do lock up way too many people in this country for victimless crimes. Do we believe in freedom or not? I do.

    “The only reasons for those differences you may discuss in public are social: poverty, oppression, lack of self-esteem. And in fact all of those reasons have a single root cause: “systemic racism” on the part of whites towards other races.”

    I would say that the Left’s excuses for black crime are pathetic, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the answer is genetics. I would say it is much more likely to be a cultural thing. The black community in general has a bad culture. It lionizes the wrong people. It encourages men to treat women poorly and not get married. It encourages young men to pursue a career in sports (which is unlikely for most) rather than worrying about studying and putting themselves on a much likelier path of success. It encourages all blacks to blame their problems on nonexistent white oppression.

    But whether the issue is nature or nurture, for any honest person, there is no denying the stats. Black men commit much more violent crime than any other racial demographic.

    The idea that the ruling class is a unified coherent group with a core ideology is typical of modern far right thinking, which is obsessed with vast conspiracy theories.

    The ruling class isn’t a unified group but they share a common core built upon race denial. That race denial is the foundation for the ruling class belief in globalism which then differs by right and left outlooks.

    Those right and left globalist outlooks completely fall apart in the context of race because they share the same fraudulent foundation.

    Take any ruling class leader and put them in front of an Unz crowd for questions related to how the people should be ruled. It would be absolutely terrifying for them because their race denial based ideologies don’t work here. Basic questions about globalism and development of the third world would send them running. They would have nothing to stand on. What would be left? Belief in rapacious greed?

    This is why it is the foundation of their outlook. Nothing is left but greed when you take it away. All of their non-profits and government programs require race denial.

    Derb is obsessed with race so he assumes that the ruling class is equally obsessed by that issue

    It’s not that the ruling class is obsessed with race but it provides them a shared foundation. I think it is better described as globalism but it is really one in the same. Globalism requires race denial as it crumbles when race is openly studied. Massive economic questions result when you accept development and culture are inextricably tied to group genetics. It really flips everything the establishment believes upside down. Massive, ideology shaking questions result that the ruling class would be unable to answer. Such questions are only allowed to be asked on the dark corners of the internet like this one.

    Sure it lionizes the wrong people but couldn’t that have a genetic connection?

    Blacks are under pressure from liberals and conservatives to be White people. Well what if they aren’t?

    It seems that no one is considering this.

    If race exists then we are telling a group of people to be something they are not. I don’t see why anyone would expect a positive culture to develop in that environment. Blacks are told by conservatives that they need to improve their morals and then they are also expected to meet liberal expectations of race not existing. I don’t see why it would be a surprise that a negative subculture would develop.

    Egalitarians and cultural conservatives refuse to consider this possibly and insist that God or nature made everyone equal. Liberals especially see this as a net free belief meaning no harm can come if we are lying. But this is not the case. I have known teachers and I have seen the destructive side of egalitarianism. The academic gap that exists is itself a lie in that it would be much larger if not for meddling egalitarians. In other words with the current gap they are cheating through unethical means. They also intentionally hold back White kids and have shut down a lot of gifted programs. It just doesn’t’ work and makes us less competitive.

    I have also seen the destructive side of affirmative action. Everyone assumes that AA candidates are qualified but given a boost over White candidates. No the reality is that underqualified candidates are given positions that are over their heads. We will never know how many government or corporate disasters were caused by this problem.

    There are some differences among the top 1%, but much less than among the rest of us. The main factor seems to be knowledge of English. Among those who read mostly in English, and who are just above-average in intelligence, the political thinking is very homogeneous.

    There are certain beliefs to which you have to at least pay lip service if you’re a member of the ruling class. Denial of racial differences is one but there are others – feminism, the belief that homosexuality is normal and natural, climate change. It’s also pretty much essential to profess to believe in democracy.

    If you don’t pay lip service to those beliefs you’ll pay a price. I’m just not sure that one of those beliefs can be described as the core ideology of the ruling class. To a large extent I think they’re class markers.

    In Canada the native/aboriginal canadians, who are about the same racial mix as Derbyshire’s children, have twice the incarceration rate of blacks in the US. So Derbyshire, do you recommend that all Canadians should have “The Talk” with their children warning them from associating with people who look like your kids? Why not?

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/22/one-third-canada-prisoners-indigenous-report

    More than 30% of inmates in Canadian prisons are Indigenous – even though aboriginal people make up just 5% of the country’s population, according to new figures released by a federal watchdog.

    Numerous factors – including poverty rates and racism in policing – contribute to the imbalance in convictions.

    And once in detention, Indigenous people face another set of systemic inequities: Indigenous offenders are more likely to be sent of maximum-security facilities and are disproportionately the recipients of harm, both self-induced and in incidents involving “use of force”. They are also much more likely to be placed in solitary confinement.
    And although there are far few female prisoners, the statistics for Indigenous women are even bleaker: they currently represent 42% of the female prison population.

    Indigenous inmates also serve more of their sentence before being granted parole – and reoffend at much higher levels than non-indigenous inmates.

    The black incarceration rate in America is less than half of that and declining faster than the rates for whites and hispanics:

    https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/05/06/share-of-black-white-hispanic-americans-in-prison-2018-vs-2006/

    In 2018, black Americans represented 33% of the sentenced prison population, nearly triple their 12% share of the U.S. adult population.

    The nation’s imprisonment rate is at its lowest level in more than two decades. The greatest decline has come among black Americans, whose imprisonment rate has decreased 34% since 2006.

    The drug laws invent a crime where none exists. Same with money laundering and many other crimes that can’t identify a victim. The lessons of prohibition should have convinced people to ignore drugs and the people who take them, as long as there is no violence or fraud associated with that use.

    There are already numerous laws that prohibit harming others. They should be enforced to get rid of the real criminals in the society and leave those that want to poison themselves alone. Just like drunk driving, anyone that inflicts harm while drug intoxicated should be dealt with severely. But simply purchasing drugs and poisoning oneself should be ignored under law.

    “The problem with discrimination (of the pejorative type) is that a group is blamed, rather than individuals.”

    I completely agree. The mind naturally makes generalizations, and so readily makes over-generalizations. At one time everybody knew the earth was flat because it was “obvious” just by looking around at the world. People could see inheritance over generations, and applied the inheritance theory widely. Today we see correlations between race and IQ test scores and readily apply the inheritance theory. But there is now SO MUCH evidence on INDIVIDUAL VARIATION within racial groups, and on ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS, that sticking with a very simple inheritance theory is only explained by ignorance. I hope you don’t mind my using your comment as a jumping off point to review some of this evidence.

    Interpreting Correlations

    “There is a correlation of 0.44 (Lynn, 2006a, p 214) between human brain size and intelligence for individuals, as measured by IQ.”
    “Erectus Walks Amongst Us” in Chapter 14 on Intelligence
    https://www.unz.com/text/ErectusWalks/Chap14.html

    A correlation of 0.44 between brain sizes and IQ test scores means there is a lot of the variation in test scores that is not attributable to brain size. A standard measure of variability for a single variable (e.g. brain size) is the “variance”. This is the average squared deviation from the mean. We can think of this as the average of the deviations, with each deviation weighted by itself. This gives larger deviations more weight. With two variables (e.g. brain size and IQ score), the analogous measure of variability is the “covariance”. Methematically, if we square the correlation coefficient we get the proportion of the covariance attributable to this correlation relationship. This squared correlation coefficient is therefore called the “coefficient of determination”. Thus, 0.44 squared is 0.1936, or approximately 0.2. Therefore, 20 percent of the variance in IQ scores can be attributed to (predicted by) brain size. Similarly, 20 percent of the variance in brain size can be predicted by IQ score.

    Therefore, this data does indicate a relationship between brain size and IQ score. And it indicates that there is also a lot more going on in the IQ score besides brain size, since eighty percent remains unaccounted for. Some of this will inevitably be random noise in the measurements. But some may reflect other important factors, such as the history of the person’s nutrition and the richness of their cognitive environment over time. The only way to identify these other factors is to specifically look for them.

    When we look at the correlation of two known variables, we must keep in mind the possibility of hidden variables that are also co-varying with the two we are monitoring. For example, when we look at the IQ scores of identical twins, there will be shared environmental factors that also covary. Fraternal twins provide some degree of control for this, since they have the same prenatal environment, but somewhat different genetics. However, fraternal twins may be treated quite differently after being born, especially if they are different sexes. Also, in the case of identical twins raised apart, adoption agencies try to place twins in comparable families, providing similar environments.

    [MORE]

    In practice, it’s very difficult to control for all the possible non-genetic factors in a correlation study. For this reason, non-genetic factors are best examined in controlled experiments, where the non-genetic factors can be directly manipulated. And those studies show definite effects of non-genetic factors.

    Direct Evidence of Non-Genetic Factors

    There is evidence that early environmental factors can make a 15 point difference in IQ test scores. Thus, such factors could potentially explain the group difference between Euro and Afro Americans. The following two paragraphs are from “Education and its effect on IQ”
    https://www.iqtestexperts.com/iq-education.php

    “The Head Start program in the United States is a federally funded preschool program for children from low income families. Head Start provides children with activities that might enhance cognitive development, including reading books, learning the alphabet and numbers, learning the names of colors, drawing, and other activities. These programs often have large initial effects on IQ test results and children who participate gain as much as 15 IQ points compared to control groups of similar children not in the program. The educational correlation for IQ test results continues into adulthood, with college graduates typically scoring higher than non college graduates.

    “A substantial body of research establishes that preschool education can improve the learning and development of young children. Multiple meta-analyses conducted over the past 25 years have found preschool education to produce an average immediate effect of about half (0.50) a standard deviation on cognitive development. This is the equivalent of 7 or 8 points on an IQ test, or a ascent from the 30th to the 50th percentile on test scores.”

    The Head Start pre-school effect on IQ scores, which has been solidly demonstrated, has also been observed to “fade out” after several years. Even so, many of the preschool programs were found to have residual longer lasting effects on other indicators, including graduation rates. The explanation for this is that when the kids lose the environmental enrichment of Head Start’s pre-school program, they hit a “use it or lose it” situation. It’s roughly similar to when a person builds up their body by a training regimen, and then drops that regimen. Eventually they also drop most of its gains. Here are a couple of articles on this.
    “Does Head Start Fade Out?”
    https://www.edweek.org/ew/articles/1993/05/19/34barn.h12.html
    “The ‘Fade-Out Effect’”
    https://notpoliticallycorrect.me/2019/09/13/the-fade-out-effect/

    In addition to the evidence given above there is the well-known birth order effect. On average, the first born in a family scores slightly higher on the IQ test than the second born, who scores slightly higher than the third born, etc. If the test scores were determined solely by genes, then by random genetic combinations the second born would be equally likely to score highest. Similarly, the fifth born would be equally likely to score highest. But that is decisively not the case. A plausible explanation is that the parents give somewhat more enriching time to the first born than to the others. This could include reading to the child, explaining things to the child, and coaching the child on language and vocabulary. With each successive child, its siblings play a bigger role in keeping the child occupied. And young siblings will not have an adult capacity to provide enriching interactions with the child.

    Genes are certainly a factor in IQ test scores. At a minimum, genes determine that a newborn human will have a human brain rather than a cat brain. But the theory that genetics is the only significant factor that influences a person’s IQ test score has been conclusively disproved.

    Brain Plasticity

    Modern research has shown that the human brain is extremely plastic. For example, if a person goes blind early in life then parts of the brain that would normally be used for visual processing will adapt and be used for some other type of processing. Thus, whatever the degree of genetic determination for those parts’ functioning, it does not prevent those parts from being used for an entirely different purpose.

    Further, without damage, the normal brain continues adding new neurons and synapses throughout life, as long as a person is mentally active. That is why we are seeing the advent of cognitive training programs to keep people mentally sharp.

    These findings suggest that plasticity itself is a primary property of the brain. Strategically, it is not unreasonable that the brain, our internal structure that guides our adapting to our external environment, can itself adapt to its changing situations more than our surface inspections would reveal.

    Types of Intelligence

    Sometimes something that seems simple at first glance turns out to be more complex upon closer inspection. Intelligence may be such a case. There are three people I know, all adult males, who illustrate this. Person one is very good at practical tasks. He’s an expert at designing and building electrical devices, including computer controlled devices. His clients tell him what they need, and he builds it. But he’s not so good at coming up with brand new innovations. He has tried to come up with such, but with little success. Person two has a facility for coming up with innovative ideas, and has received that feedback repeatedly. Person three has a facility for emotional awareness and artistry, especially in language, but also in music and photography. He had a great struggle with algebra. Person two found algebra to be “common sense”, but lacks the deep awareness of emotion and artistry of the person three. Person one is especially weak at artistry in his designs and writing. It seems ot me these three men have distinct “natural talents”, and different tests would be needed to measure them. I suspect the more we look into human abilities, the more such differences we will find.

    The Motivation Factor

    In the following article, commenter Thomasina makes the following point (comment #10).
    “The Best High School in the Country May be Sacrificed to Diversity”
    https://www.unz.com/ghood/the-best-high-school-in-the-country-may-be-sacrificed-to-diversity/

    “My children’s school classes were approximately 80% Chinese. I knew most of the students and many of the parents personally. Highly competitive parents, especially against other Chinese. The children were seldom at the park or involved in free play, but they did take lots of lessons. If one Chinese parent said their child was at, say, Level 5 in ‘whatever’, the other parent would say, ‘Oh, I must get extra lessons for my child. They must work harder!’ Always comparing notes.

    They are better at math and science, but that is not because they are more intelligent. They just study more, and they take tons and tons of Kumon math lessons and use tutors extensively. IOW, they excelled at the subjects they devoted their time to, but they were no better at the other subjects.

    “So pushed very hard in order to get into medicine, finance, etc. – where the money is. But I didn’t see a lot of creativity or humor, just competent regurgitation of material.”

    The motivation factor is also mentioned in “Erectus Walks Amongst Us” in Chapter 14 on Intelligence
    https://www.unz.com/text/ErectusWalks/Chap14.html

    “Today, even though more intelligent people have the means to be more reproductively successful, they lack the motivation to do it, so their fitness, and the average intelligence of the population has declined.”

    Motivation may also play a part in taking IQ tests. For example, the Raven’s Matrices test is a timed test, so there is a definite benefit to working quickly. But not all children may feel a similar sense of urgency when taking such a test. There may be significant differences between what parents have taught their children regarding urgency. There may even be cultural differences affecting a person’s sense of urgency in such a situation.

    Finally, since motivation is a major factor in our achievements, we can’t overlook the possibility that “determination” has a survival benefit, and hence may have a genetic component. If so, identical twins may have similar levels of determination in their approach to various tasks, including taking pencil and paper tests.

    The Search For Specific Genes

    New technologies for examining specific genes has provided a more direct way of finding correlations between genes and IQ test scores.
    An excellent review of the search for intelligence genes, and the complexity of intelligence, is in this article from Scientific American.
    “The Search for Intelligence”
    https://web.archive.org/web/20140716005633/http://carlzimmer.com/articles/index.php?subaction=showfull&id=1221839513&archive=&start_from=&ucat=11&

    The following are key paragraphs from that article.

    “It was with great delight that Plomin got his hands on microarrays that could detect 500,000 genetic markers – hundreds of times more than he had previously used. He and his colleagues got cheek swabs from 7,000 children, isolated their DNA, and ran it through the microarrays. And once more the results were disappointing.”

    “‘I’m not willing to say that we have found genes for intelligence,’ Plomin declares, ‘because there have been so many false positives. They’re such small effects that you’re going to have to replicate them in many studies to feel very confident about them.’”

    “Failing to find genes for intelligence has, in itself, been very instructive for Plomin. Twin studies continue to persuade him that the genes exist. ‘There is ultimately DNA variation responsible for it,’ he says. But each of the variations detected so far only makes a tiny contribution to differences in intelligence. ‘I think nobody thought that the biggest effects would account for less than 1 percent,’ Plomin points out.”

    “That means that there must be hundreds–perhaps thousands–of genes that together produce the full range of gene-based variation in intelligence.”

    “Plomin also surmises that his results offer some hints as to how genes influence intelligence in the brain. ‘If there are many genes of small effect, it’s highly unlikely that they are all going to focus in one area of the brain,’ he argues. Instead the genes may be influencing a large network of brain regions. And each of those intelligence-associated genes may produce many different effects in different parts of the brain.”

    Consistent with this hypotheses, more recent brain imaging studies have found that development in different areas of the brain correlates with IQ test scores.

    “Researchers have found that people with high intelligence scores tend to have certain regions of the cortex that are larger than average. Shaw expects that some of those patterns will turn out to be the result of the environment. But these regions of the cortex tend to be the same size in twins, indicating that genes are responsible for some of the difference as well.”

    “Recently Haier and Rex Eugene Jung of the University of New Mexico surveyed 37 studies examining regional brain size or activity to look for an overall pattern to their results. As Plomin would have predicted, Haier and Jung found no one ‘intelligence spot’ in the brain. Instead they identified a number of significant regions scattered around the cortex. Other studies have implicated each of these regions in different kinds of cognition. ‘It looks like intelligence is built on these fundamental cognitive processes, like attention and memory, and maybe language ability,’ Haier says.”

    “Along with describing the gray matter tissue that makes up the cortex, these studies also find the signature of intelligence in the white matter that links distant parts of the cortex to one another. People with high intelligence tend to have tracts of white matter that are more organized than other people. ‘The white matter is like the wiring,’ Haier says. ‘If you think about it, you know, intelligence really requires processing power and speed; the white matter would give it the speed; the gray matter would give it the processing power.’”

    All these different parts of the brain that are involved in intelligence are likely to exhibit brain plasticity, with its “use it or lose it” characteristic. In that sense, brain function may be more like muscle function than formerly thought. For example, a researcher might find a correlation between how high a person can jump and the size of certain leg muscles. But it would be a mistake to jump to the conclusion that high jumping ability is strictly a function of genes, even though the muscles are created from the genetic blueprint. Because we know from easy observations that muscle size is developed to a great extent by use. The same is turning out to be true, to some significant extent, with our brains.

    Social Conditions

    Andrew Joyces tells a revealing story about a white North Carolina family with the three sons. Two of the sons went to a school with a social environment of disadvantaged blacks, and became like the people in that environment.
    https://www.unz.com/article/portland-memories/

    The book Crime and human nature by Q. Wilson and Richard Herrnstein present a mountain of evidence that crime results from environmental factors, not genetic factors. The book was well-reviewed by the respected writer James Fallows. Fallows puts the inheritable factors into perspective clearly. He quotes the book authors:
    “There is no ‘crime gene,’ the authors write, ‘but some traits that are to a degree heritable, such as intelligence and temperament, affect to some extent the likelihood that individuals will engage in criminal activities.’” And further, “The most important ‘genetic’ factor is gender: not all men are violent criminals, but almost all violent criminals are men, especially young men.”
    https://www.thefreelibrary.com/Crime+and+human+nature.-a04041831

    Rigorous research has found that what happened to the white kids in Joyce’s above happens to both black and white people, whether the disadvantaged environment is black or white.
    “Toward a Theory of Race, Crime, and Urban Inequality”
    http://faculty.washington.edu/matsueda/courses/517/Readings/Sampson%20Wilson.pdf

    These findings tell us that a major reason blacks in that environment are that way is because they are in that environment, the same as for whites. The primary relevant characteristics of this social environment involve social disintegration, and are described in the research paper linked above.

    The extreme effects of bad social conditions on white people were described in 1903 by Jack London in “The People of the Abyss”/ This book is based on his explorations in the very poor East End of London, England. It’s available free online here.
    https://freeditorial.com/en/books/the-people-of-the-abyss

    He documents in vivid detail the destructive effects of poverty on the people of England who found themselves in its deadly trap, typically through no fault of their own, but by chance and events outside their control. Here is a passage from his book.

    “One day there came along a labourer and his wife, his son and two daughters. Their family had lived for a long time on an estate in the country, and managed, with the help of the common-land and their labour, to get on. But the time came when the common was encroached upon, and their labour was not needed on the estate, and they were quietly turned out of their cottage. Where should they go? Of course to London, where work was thought to be plentiful. They had a little savings, and they thought they could get two decent rooms to live in. But the inexorable land question met them in London. They tried the decent courts for lodgings,and found that two rooms would cost ten shillings a week. Food was dear and bad, water was bad, and in a short time their health suffered. Work was hard to get, and its wage was so low that they were soon in debt. They became more ill and more despairing with the poisonous surroundings, the darkness, and the long hours of work; and they were driven forth to seek a cheaper lodging. They found it in a court I knew well — a hotbed of crime and nameless horrors. In this they got a single room at a cruel rent, and work was more difficult for them to get now, as they came from a place of such bad repute, and they fell into the hands of those who sweat the last drop out of man and woman and child, for wages which are the food only of despair. And the darkness and the dirt, the bad food and the sickness, and the want of water was worse than before; and the crowd and the companionship of the court robbed them of the last shreds of self-respect. The drink demon seized upon them. Of course there was a public-house at both ends of the court. There they fled, one and all, for shelter, and warmth, and society, and forgetfulness. And they came out in deeper debt, with inflamed senses and burning brains, and an unsatisfied craving for drink they would do anything to satiate. And in a few months the father was in prison, the wife dying, the son a criminal, and the daughters on the street. Multiply this by half a million, and you will be beneath the truth.”

    The Mythical White Person

    We find the following statement in chapter 36 on Morality of “Erectus Walks Amongst Us”
    https://www.unz.com/text/ErectusWalks/Chap36.html
    Morality

    “It is hardly a coincidence that Caucasians, who have a strong urge to cooperate with and help others, embraced Christianity, a religion that requires them to do exactly that.”

    In this statement the adaptive benefits of cooperation are not ascribed to other races, even though people of all races have exhibited cooperation for thousands of years.

    We may want to claim that all races exhibit tribalism, and cooperation within their tribe, but that Caucasians are more likely to cooperate with people outside the Caucasian tribe. This claim runs aground on the treatment of non-Caucasians by Caucasian empires. The non-Caucasians were generally regarded as sub-human, disposable entities, and freely butchered and robbed. Even within Europe, history shows us Caucasians butchering and robbing other Caucasians.

    The plain facts of history shows us that this idea that Caucasians have an inherent moral superiority is a myth. Everyone wants to believe they are on the side of God and right. Both armies in every war have their military priests.

    Public Policies

    How do we want to use this knowledge for public policy decisions? It is not rational to assume a group of people who have been relentlessly socially suppressed are performing poorer on tests solely because of “bad genes”, which will limit them and their children indefinitely into the future. On the other hand, it is not rational to undertake remedies for suppressed people that are known to be ineffective. Realism requires us to accept the limitations of our interventions.

    Ideally we would help each person cultivate their abilities toward their maximum potential, and simultaneously help each individual find a suitable, productive niche in society.

  153. Anon[589] • Disclaimer says:

    If you read the entire document, it is full of exceptions that almost entirely eat the rules. For example, most of the “we will not prosecute” things are only for first offenders or sole offenses within a two-year period. This sort of policy, whatever you think of it, has been common in both right and left local governments for a while, given budget restraints.

    So things have really not changed that much. The problems are that:

    1. For publicity purposes the D.A. is giving those (like even Derbyshire, but more dangerously young black thugs, assuming they read the news) the impression that they can commit crimes without consequences, and …

    2. There is still consideration wiggle room for prosecutorial discretion, allowing, for example, white perps to be prosecuted and BIPOCs to be let go. I suspect that if you wanted to participate in a publicity stunt as a tough-on-crime white person to shoplift and post it on YouTube, you’d be prosecuted.

  154. In mid-70’s at a UK university when I was attending my finals there was an anti-testing movement among the students. About a third of the students in the examination hall left a note stating “Don’t grade me, I’m not an egg” on the desk and walked out. Since they were boycotting exams I was surprised why they bothered even turning up but I guess they just wanted to make their point with their protest note. These people spent three years at university, having fun, studying, even taking their part one second year examinations and other tests and graded assignments, and then just threw it all away walking out of university without a degree they could have easily earned. I guess they just didn’t care and at the time not having a degree wasn’t much of a handicap when trying to get on in life. I never came across anything like this later on at any other university and don’t know how widespread this was at other universities during that year; in fact just a year later at another university I saw students crying and very upset when being kicked out of examinations for cheating. Very odd indeed.

    Agree all, Gotmit. I wasn’t shitting on unions of the trades. Trade unions produce and build. Teachers now tear down and indoctrinate. Their union is shit. They take the union dues and pump them into Democrat candidates, exclusively. The whole thing is a Feminist Disney World now, run to the detriment of the children while the teachers sit on their ever-fattening asses at home at full pay and benefits. They protest and undermine home and parochial schooling and NOW, they’re destroying the STEM magnet schools such as Thomas Jefferson in McLean Virginia over race, that is, blacks are too fucking stupid to pass/quality their way into those schools, but the Blacks must be there to disrupt and ruin yet another bastion of White merit and accomplishment. There is the same in NYC, same at The Latin School in Boston. They’re destroying merit. Academia today is destroying merit, feminism destroys merit. They can’t measure up and so they must tear down.

    And THAT children, is WHY we’re in decline. Take on the customs and methods of the Third World and you become, well, the Third World.

    I was an electrician and phone guy, never a union guy, except for 1 year when I was with CWA at NORTEL, they drove the branch I was in out of business with a strike that made things too expensive. Unions did nothing for me, but surely I’d have loved to have shared in the bounty of a union career. I was too far South in Northern Virginia. Tough for unions to have sway in right-to-work states. But teachers’ unions, they are a foul and corrupt and sleazy lot. And responsible for much destruction. No one makes teachers out to be noble in my sphere. It isn’t possible. I’ll put the lie to it ever time. They suck.

    Chinese and Amerindians are completely different and separated by tens of thousands of years of evolution despite having similar features. They do have similar cognitive profiles in terms of verbal/spatial skew because of their shared ancestry. That said, Amerindians basically test like very dull Chinese (90-95 IQ v 100-105 IQ). That’s over half a standard deviation. Also of note is that East Asians have had alcohol about as long as Europeans, and thus have evolved protections against alcoholism. Most Amerindians – particularly up north – were hunter-gatherers until the White man came. So even those groups that do somewhat OK on IQ tests (eg Eskimos) have worse outcomes for their IQ due to alcoholism.

    There’s no population of Blacks anywhere on the planet that functions well in a modern society. There are some highly selected African immigrants in the UK that do OK – but still not as well as the Chinese and some South Asians or native Whites (some of these selected Blacks do out score native Whites on the low end but not the high end). And there are populations like the Igbo that seem to be smarter. But once you get a large population of Blacks the law of averages takes over. Even in the UK. Blacks in North America, South America, Europe, Australia etc all look pretty similar. A history of slavery makes little difference. Race differences are consistent over time and space. And speaking of the Chinese, everywhere they go (South America, Australia, Europe etc) they succeed and exhibit the same basic personality profile (agreeable but low trust, materialistic but thrifty, smart and industrious).

    Problems 1 and 2 will never go away, because of the special historical relationship between whites and blacks in the Democratic party. The Democrat morality play requires strict roles: blacks achieve redemption by playing victims who can never be made whole, and whites achieve redemption through humility and self-flagellation. It really is a closed system; I assume that Asians who vote Democrat are drawn in by labels like liberal, progressive, Left or whatever.

    Problem One: Half a century of efforts, including massive favoritism towards blacks, expenditures of trillions, and the election of a black President, have made only a slight dent in the differences of outcome.
    Answer: Your role is determined by color; blacks wear chains and whites wear hair shirts and buy indulgences. Nothing will alter this, except the dissolution of the Democrat party.

    Problem Two: East and South Asians, who are now richer and more successful on average than whites.
    Answer: Asians who shrug off the hair shirt are not real Democrats, and as the Dems veer toward extreme Leftism and communism, the Asians will desert them. Unsuccessful Asians I assume will happily wear chains in the Democrat morality play.

In most places Spanish is the default language of choice and the whites still living there are either financially strapped or they’re living a brainwashed lie, believing a change is coming as Black Lives Matter and sanctuary cities overtake whitey.

    A racist and bigoted Jew has responded to a Christian-themed comment in a hateful, satirical way using every manner of straw man and sophistry imaginable. Imagine my surprise.

    It’s so rare that Jews like yourself unmask yourself and emerge from the comfort of behind-the-scenes anonymity to openly mock and attack the Gentiles. But for Christianity you obviously make an exception. I’m flattered.

    Christians have fallen from God too and followed the Jews as applauders of the killing of Christ, to the point of overtaking the Jews in perversion and taking the lead :

    [MORE]

    No one has overtaken the Jews in perversion, let alone “taken the lead.” Sorry to burst your bubble, but the likes of Epstein and Weinstein still hold the trophy for most perverted. If the Jewish community came out and condemned such perversion, then you might have a case. Unfortunately, Jews still identify AS JEWS despite their perversion. Or is this perversion acceptable to you because it’s directed towards Gentiles and intended to benefit humiliate and degrade them? Jews do not renounce other Jews because they are “perverted.” That has been the case with Anthony Weiner, Roman Polanski, Woodie Allen, etc. We see this happening now with Jeffrey Toobin, who, despite masturbating on a live zoom call, is still defended by fellow Jews. I guess it’s not as bad as masturbating in a potted plant and then hiring Mossad to harass some poor shiksa starlet. Can you give me an example of a Jew excommunicating, condemning to hell, or totally renouncing another Jew because of their immoral behavior? Has a prominent Rabbi come out and condemned Jeffrey Epstein to hell for his sex trafficking? Or have they maybe distanced themselves from him only because he’s not a good look for Jews?

    There’s no such thing as a Christian who identifies as Christian and engages in the kind of perversity as Epstein – the only reason you’d think this is that you just view Christianity in the same way that Jews view Judaism – that is, you view Christianity as some kind of ethnic identifier, not as a belief system. For you, all Gentiles are basically Christians. So any Gentile involved in immorality from your point of view constitutes “Christian” immorality. That is why you bring up all this political nonsense about Reagan and the New Deal, because there is no spiritual reality for you, only the sordid mud-slinging of politics. You are a worldly person, and all spirituality amounts to worldly matters of this world. This says more about your own spiritual barrenness than of the Christians whom you are attempting to vilify. If a pastor does indeed commit sin and falls from grace, if they are indeed a real pastor and not some psyop or false teacher (e.g. John Hagee, Ted Haggart, Jeremy Falwell, Pat Robertson, etc.), it’s to that person’s shame and results in that person losing status and being ostracized from the community.

    that has been predicted by so many seers of long ago

    What “seers”? What does that even mean? That is hardly evidence of anything. You’re now attempting, by way of analogy, to underhandedly reduce Biblical authority to the level of some sideshow superstition that has no authority. For Christians, the Bible is authoritative. If you don’t view it as authoritative, then why not just say so. If you are not Christian and are offended by the post, how about just not respond to it? And if you are going to respond to it, how about just say that the message of the post is not valid for you because you, as a Jew and a non-Christian, don’t accept the premises of the argument? But instead, you have to be snide and mocking and mention something bogus like “seers” as if that’s even worth taking seriously. The fact that you respond at all to the post and respond the way you do shows the level of vitriol Jews have for Christians.

    In the US the most evil aspect of Zionism stems from Evangelism,

    This is a lot of nonsense. Zionism is inherently evil. There is no aspect of it that is good or wholesome. And I’m sorry, but no, the evil of Zionism is the result of Jews and no one else. Don’t shift blame for Zionism to Christians. It’s Jews who have been carrying out ethnic cleansing and murdering innocent Palestinian children and unarmed teenagers. It’s Jews who provide the bulk of the financing for Zionism. It’s Jews who control the media environment that protects Zionism from criticism and suppresses any negative press coverage. It’s Jews who are actively lobbying to pass anti-BDS laws that suppress free speech. It’s Jews who lobby for wars in the Middle East on behalf of Israel, resulting in hundreds of thousands of innocent lives dead. Zionism is the mission of the Jewish people, and Zionism has nothing to do with Christianity, and to the extent that it does, it’s only because there exist phony pastors, like John Hagee and Jerry Falwell, who have been paid and financed by Zionists like Sheldon Adelson. Menachem Begin even bought a private jet for Jerry Falwell. Of course, as a Jew, you neglect to mention that.

    But if you actually spent time among real Christians and went to real churches, instead of watching caricatured news media depictions of Christian Zionists, you’d realize that Jews are irrelevant to the cultural and social life of Christians. The idea of Christians being responsible for Zionism is just another disingenuous Jewish meme that you like to propagate to distract from flagrant abuses of human rights committed by Jews because of Zionism. The fact that you even feel the need to distract from Zionism by blaming Christians for it ironically is further tacit admission on your part of just how sordid, low, and disgusting Zionism is.

    And what, pray tell, becomes of the Christians who actually denounce Zionism and criticize the role of Jews in the entertainment industry? Their voices are immediately silenced and suppressed, and they are called “fundamentalists,” even “Nazis,” probably by the likes of people like you. So for Christians who appear in the media, you’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t: if you’re favorable to Zionism, then you’re a “Christian Zionist” and responsible for the Jewish ethnic cleansing of Zionism. If you are critical of Zionism, then you are an anti-Semitic Nazi. For Jews, there’s will always be a way to demonize and stigmatize Christians, because Jews, like yourself, have a deep-seated loathing for Christianity.

    You are right though in condemning Christians who bemoan about their riches being taken by Jews

    It’s truly incredible how you use straw-men and twist words here. The post was not “condemning” Christians, nor was the post critical of Christians for bemoaning their “riches being taken.” The original post was critical of Christians bemoaning the fact of living in a society whose morality has been corrupted by Jews.

    had they been real Christians, they would have been too poor for Jews to rob them (Jews don’t attack Amish),

    You don’t know what a “real” Christian is, you only know your Jewish-made stereotypes of Christians. The Jewish meme of the Bible-thumping fundamentalist and hypocrite is how you would like to portray them, not on how they actually are. Your understanding of Christianity is also super simplistic and childish, as if it were about totally renouncing wealth, probably based on a verse from Christ’s sermons that you heard out of context. Your superficial understanding of Christianity is on the level of a high school student whose knowledge of Christianity is based on watching the “Ten Commandments” and “It’s a Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart.

    There’s an embedded assumption in your argument that having wealth is inherently immoral. This is obviously some kind of Jewish projection on your part because people like you can’t imagine a world in which money is earned through honesty and hard work. Hence, you assume the rest of the world is like you, and that people who become even modestly wealthy must have done so via the same underhanded and subversive tactics employed by Jews.

    Had they been real Christians, they would’ve outlawed usury in the United States, outlawed pornography, and enacted strict censorship laws against Hollywood media products from Hollywood’s inception, which would’ve prevented Jews from acquiring wealth as they did. It’s good that you admit that Jews “rob” though.

    Jews don’t attack Amish? Jews regularly mock the Amish and make movies mocking them all the time.

    elementary Jewish values, like fighting for a better world in workers’ unions or elsewhere.

    Yeah, that’s it. Jewish values are all about “fighting for a better world.” Was Epstein’s whole sex-trafficking ring all about “fighting for a better world”? Are Israeli settlements all about “fighting for a better world”? Was the Irgun about fighting for a “better world”? I suppose in your mind that Bolshevik terrorism resulting in the mass destruction of churches and the mass execution of priests is also in the category of “fighting for a better world.” I’ll let the rest of the Unz commenters have a laugh about that. And Jews, like yourself, have nothing but loathing for the working class, which is mostly ethnocentric, Christian, and family-oriented.

    Honestly, it’s rare that Jews post comments on Unz like this. It’s very telling that this would be one of the few times that you come out of the woodwork to engage in such sophistry-laden and semi-satirical hate spiels. I’m flattered to be honest.

    Repent and turn to God. Put away your hatred, your sense of ethnic supremacy as a Jew, and believe in Jesus Christ. You still have time.

    Denying to accept we have race differences is what got us into this mess in the first place. In a sane world, Derbyshire’s essay ‘The Talk’, would be mandatory reading for every non black child until it was memorized. The reason they downplay black violence is for one simple reason, non blacks would turn on blacks in every part of society. You can only push the “Magic Negro” “Wakanda” b.s. so far until it backfires, and that is what’s now taking place. When 13% of the population commit 60% of all crime, while media, Hollywood, technopolies, monopolies and big bank use blacks as representatives of American culture through commercials, advertisements and entertainment, is not only a joke, it’s embarrassing to watch the blatant pandering to a thankless, violent class of humanoids that would be better off returned to African savanna’s, mastering mud hut architecture and public street sewage engineering.

    Good points.

    However, nothing large can be done one one’s own… it requires a level of organization whether in business, academia or otherwise. Imagine a gathering of “elites” for social purposes. If these are producing folks (in industry, academia, etc), conversation will at some point turn to business. “What’s in it for me?” becomes “What’s in it for us?”. There is nothing nefarious in the preceding. Technically however it can still be called a conspiracy, even though the name has negative connotations.

    “Cui bono” is a good method to probe such conspiracies.

    A point I neglected to mention.

    The ideological drivers of some of the ruling class you mention… they appear to have certain intersections. Like certain wars. Like support for certain groups. Like the monopoly on the money supply and setting of interest rates. Like aspects of our culture that have broken the family, apparently in an irreversible way for the majority.

    Other issues appear to still be discussed to an extent, such as immigration or qualifications thereto. But even those appear to be the last gasps of an issue that is settled, for various reasons, good or not.

    So whether you want to call it intentional conspiracy, or just various agendas driven by disparate groups coming together for their own purposes – multiple marriages of convenience, it may not matter. The fact that some members of those elites appear to have more foresight than others – and talk about it – gives it the look of a conspiracy, but the mechanics of it, are probably more like you describe – driven by self-interest.

    If there’s conformity in belief that’s an indication that there’s not much actual political thinking going on.

    It’s partly conformity and partly shared self-interest. If your income is from investments, you’ve been gaining from globalization. If it’s from a wage, you’ve been losing.

    Globalism is indeed the core ideology of our elites.

    Admittedly, it’s not entirely conscious self-interest. Or even mainly. Once a particular ideological environment has been created, it will become the Truth, and most people will accept it as the Truth, even those who remember when the Truth was different.

    Are you familiar with the Milgram experiment? People want to believe the Voice of Authority. And a lot of time and energy has been invested in monopolizing the Voice of Authority. Think tanks, university chairs, business journals, the mainstream media, politicians … Gandhi was right. Freedom of the press is the freedom to buy up the press and push your agenda.

    Yeah, any group (not necessarily of elites) with common interests will to some extent work together to advance those common interests. Doctors do it. Lawyers do it. Every industry group does it. Irish-Americans were accused of doing it a century ago. People in the media will act to advance the interests of the media. Farmers will do it to advance their common interests (which is why farmers will fight tooth and nail to get a large supply of Third World immigrants to whom they can pay starvation wages). Gun-owners do it. Is the NRA a conspiracy? Well yes, in a way. The tech giants certainly do it.

    These might be technically conspiracies but they make sense and they’re believable. Satanist elites working together for the cause of Satan makes no sense and is not believable. A vast conspiracy to cover up faked moon landings makes no sense and is not believable.

    In any such case you have to ask yourself a few questions. Does the conspiracy make any sense? Is there any evidence for it? Would such a conspiracy have any chance of working?

    Whether it’s conformity or shared self-interest it’s not an actual ideological position. It’s an ideological Flag of Convenience.

    The key point is that people whose political position is based on conformity or shared self-interest will change their political position in a heartbeat, if it’s in their interests to do so. People whose political position is based on genuine ideological commitment will maintain that position even it becomes inconvenient to do so.

    It’s vital to distinguish between the two types of political opinions. I suspect that most of today’s globalists would become nationalists overnight if it served their interests.

    It would however be useful to know how many of the ruling class are ideological True Believers and how many are just following an ideological Flag of Convenience.

    Drunk driving hurts no one. It’s hitting someone or some thing while drunk that causes injury or property damage.

    Why not make being drunk an issue when a real offense is made such as a car accident? I’ll tell you why – there’s not enough money in it. Ticketing brings in too much revenue for a crime without a victim to let that every happen.

    Candidly, I’d make causing property damage or injury while intoxicated regardless of if by drugs or alcohol, an offense that lands a person on a chain gang for a period of time while he works off the costs of the damages at minimum wage. A death caused by an accident while under the influence should get he death penalty.

    Think about the doctors, lawyers, stock brokers that would stop using if they knew that one accident would ruin their careers by being on a chain gang for a year or three or seven.

    Repeat offender, I’d shoot.

    Well, I think you are mostly correct.

    I would add that the absurdity of one alleged “conspiracy” does not invalidate others. Just because some people claim that “the elites” (of course not a homogeneous block) are satanic, which you could find absurd, doesn’t mean that other conspiracies are equally absurd, and they are often not advanced by the same people. Each piece needs to be considered on its own merits I think, and this site is useful in that regard, IMO.

    There are other dimensions to interpreting the data we get to try to get to the truth. What some folks call “controlled opposition” is one – you may be familiar with this. What I call “self disqualification” is another, which I believe is practiced by some to distract or divert censure. Another one I’ll call “info false flags”: Let’s say I’m an “insider” who knows that what happened on 9/11 is different from the official story (or pick your favorite conspiracy instead). One tactic would be to cater to the official-story-skeptics by claiming that the official 9/11 story is baloney and offering an absurd alternative theory – not too absurd, just absurd enough. Most people don’t have time to read the details of anything. Bingo, in the public’s mind you associated a plausible objection to the official story with some loony theory, and that is often all you need. Distracted folks will disseminate the association, and the enduring skeptics will be marginalized.

    Propaganda also works wonders. In the first 10′-15′ of the documentary “the century of the self” you can see how relatively simple it can be to demolish certain social taboos, essentially by lying and manipulating the public perception. It’s awesome, and concerning, at the same time.

    Whether it’s conformity or shared self-interest it’s not an actual ideological position. It’s an ideological Flag of Convenience.

    The dominant class tends to create ideologies that further its interests. This process is not fully conscious — the most convincing people are those who genuinely believe that what they want is good for everyone. If you’re in a position of power, you can construct morality, and that morality will justify your self-interest.

    We’re not even in the realm of speculation. For the past half-century, elites throughout the Western World have been promoting globalism. Yes, they will argue it’s in everybody’s interest. But that’s a standard line — “What’s good for me is good for you …” Win-win, and all that.

    There may be arbitrariness in other positions that enjoy elite support, like support for LGBT. I have no strong opinion either way. From a standpoint of globalist ideology, it’s more efficient to bring in migrants to fill labor needs than to support family formation and reproduction. The latter option requires too much long-term investment.

    Yes, I agree. So the most accurate way to describe things would be to say that the core ideology of the ruling class is “whatever happens to serve the self-interests of that class”.

    That’s a very different kind of ideology compared to that of, let’s say, communists in the West in the 1930s through to the 1950s. That was ideology based on actual sincere unselfish belief (however misguided it may have been) and it was an ideological commitment people were prepared to make even if it conflicted with their own self-interests (which it often did).

    So there’s a fundamental difference between the ideologies of ruling classes (which always take their own self-interest as their starting point) and the ideologies of oppositional groups or classes (which can often be altruistic).

    Conservatives want to blame culture but they need to consider if that culture is from expecting them to be White people with tans. Which circles back to genetics.

    Only if you’re determined to circle it back to genetics.

    I don’t think we should discount the possibility of genetic causes but I also don’t think we should discount the possibility of cultural causes.

    One side wants to blame genetics and the other side wants to blame culture.

    There is no side in Western politics that wants to blame genetics. That position is not allowed. If you suggest even 20% genetics in behavior you can become a pariah.

    Both sides favor race denial. Liberals blame White people and conservatives blame culture.

    No one is arguing that genetics are a 100% explanation for racial inequalities.

    Over a trillion has been spent on programs that assume everything is 100% nurture. What is the result? Of course there is going to be a circling back to genetics. Or is a trillion not enough for you?

    The sad thing is that most liberals at the top know they are lying. They don’t believe in the debate itself. They don’t think x% type arguments should even exist. The real debate is between two sides that want to push their own version of race denial. Liberal race denial vs conservative race denial. That is the only debate that is allowed.

    He’s mulatto. He intentionally downplays his whiteness. He identifies as black to claim all the advantages of victimhood and the real systemic racism the govt has created to offset the indisputable inherited financial advantages of whites. Harvard is a good example. Affirmative Action is exemplary of the systemic racism that he successfully advanced during his term. For instance, based on Critical Race Theory, to which he subscribes, he implemented a program of Mandatory Diversity Training across federal agencies, circa 2012.

    BTW, while many claim that his foreign birth claims were debunked, they were not. The birth certificate he finally provided was a fake. According to his half-brother, he was born in Kenya where his parents were both college students at the time of his birth. I haven’t seen any refutation of that claim. Like all Demonrats, he’s phony as a three dollar bill.

    There’s no actual proof that any specific race is superior to the others.

    In the end it’s all about number and discipline, if the niggers or the indians manage to get a good leader, all the east asians, whites will not hold a candle.

    But especially the muslims (not a race, but arabs, north africans, turk/turkic, central asian and south asian and south east asian), if the muslim can synthensize their religion with Marxism/socialism, then they will emerge as the strongest since they are spiritually strongest but with a sizeable number.
