Everyone is looking for a saviour.
No one can save you. There is no calvary about to come over the hill. Everyone of all political bents seeks a saviour. Unless you’re a cynical anarcho-captialist. Only then have you freed yourself of the notion that you can be saved. Oddly enough it is accepting there is no saviour that is your saviour. Upon letting go of the waiting for someone else to solve your problems and give you all thing things you think you deserve you can enjoy the decline. You can show up for work late because you were podcasting. You can approach college girls. You can go trail running and listen to podcasts while the normies are sitting in their cubicles.
Everyone is looking for a saviour. The alt-right thought the Trumpenfuhrer would be their saviour. Now that he has revealed himself to be the Cuckenfuhrer I notice a number of alt-righters are (much like 30 year old single mothers who want to find a man to be their saviour) turning to God and Jesus.
But that’s not what I want to talk about today. I’m saving that for a podcast episode.
The saviour of stupid people, both right and left, is democracy. Being as the stupid people are stupid their stupidity prevents them from figuring out democracy is how we got here. The stupid people will actually spew forth the meme/quote “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” and then surge forward in a wave of Hope/Change or MAGA attempting to solve the problems of democracy with voting.
To toss out yet another meme/quote “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Critics of democracy usually focus on its ineptitude and the bad results that it achieves in policy, but fewer look at the effect that it has on its people, not just in the forebrain activity of ideology but in the genetics and intuition.
Democracy appears out of the constellation of egalitarian beliefs, or those which think that the problem with human life is that it is unequal, the solution is equality, and therefore you are either working toward equality or you are the enemy.
Here at the CLS we damn sure do look at the effects of democracy on genetics. I’ve been screaming at the interwebz about natural selection for years. I was saying this before all you National Socialists showed up.
Under no circumstances is equality the solution. When I selected ≠ as the new logo of the CLS I did this very deliberately. There is no equality. If you are seeking equality you have already lost.
In Ancapadise the inferior people could seek equality all they like and not only would their quest not affect the superior, their quest would result in the inferior mostly being removed from the gene pool. In Ancapadise you can be an activist all day long. No one is going to pay you for that. Your non-profit will not get government/taxpayer funding. You will not have Section 8 housing, food stamps and Obamacare.
Seeking equality does not create value for anyone who can compensate you for the value. In Ancapadise the seekers of equality would starve or die of exposure.
Thanks to democracy people can make a profit seeking something that does not exist.
However, “equality” serves as a useful concept because it is both open-ended and absolute. In any world that is not a simple grid composed of equal-sized cubes, equality will never be achieved, but at the same time, it is such a simple and mathematical idea that it seizes the human mind.
The human mind likes things that are simple. Simpleness is the foundation of the argument against Ancapadise. It goes something like this (I’m simplifying the argument, see what I’ve done here?):
1. I don’t know how to build a road.
2. Because I can’t figure out how to make a flat place on the ground no one else can figure out how to make a flat place on the ground.
3. Only the government can figure out how to make a flat place on the ground.
4. I want flat places on the ground therefore we (the royal we) must have government.
5. Because without the government who would build the flat places on the ground?
The alt-right has a similar loop of stupidity. It looks a bit like this:
1. The government is bringing invaders to my country and giving them welfare while calling them immigrants.
2. The government that is importing these invaders is a direct result of democracy.
3. So if we (the royal we) have a national socialist government instead we (the royal we) can get rid of all the invaders.
Now this almost might make some sense but (and we know what using “but” in a sentence means) here is where I need my Nazi listeners to explain this to me. This is a serious question. Zero sarcasim.
In your national socialist country will there be voting? Are the members of the national socialist government selected by voting? If so . . .
Is anyone who has metabolized oxygen into carbon dioxide for 18 years allowed to vote?
Are women allowed to vote?
If the answer to either of those questions is yes then you have already failed. Your national socialist government will continue to import invaders.
Equality can not save you.
Democracy can not save you.
Equality can not save you.
National socialism can not save you.
Only turning off the welfare and taking political power away from women can save you. But that will never happen. Thus you can not be saved. Thus you can only enjoy the decline.
Equality reduces nature from chaos and terror to a human-only world, with structures that fit human mental convenience as well as physical, in which the individual is protected from the chaos, unpredictability, predators, diseases, wilderness, and infinite potential of the natural world.
For this reason, equality provides one of the most addictive ideas known to humanity. People are either seized by it and fascinated, or repulsed by it and go down a path of misanthropy and alienation (don’t knock it till you try it).
The obsessive pathology of egalitarianism swallows people up and leads to them to commit acts of symbolic importance that, by the necessity of rejecting natural inequality, work against common sense, logic, biology, genetics, and natural selection.
I think we all know which path The Great One has taken.
Keep the phrase symbolic importance in mind. We’ve got a great example of that coming up.
Genetically, this means that both the moron pump and genetic averaging work against the democracy. Over time, its citizens go from attractive, intelligent, and distinctive to ugly, dumb, and average.
With each generation, the average drops. In year one, the average may be at one level, but the next year, some will drop below that, and so to include them, the new average drops even lower. Degradation, degeneration, and decay result.
Perhaps Karl Marx was partially correct when he hypothesized that socialism grows inevitably out of capitalism. Successful civilizations allow too many to survive who otherwise would be kicked out for being incompatible with that civilization, or allowed to die in nature.
Mixed race children are the ugliest people alive. Stop pretending otherwise.
Yes. Successful civilizations lead to weak populations. Weak populations know they are inferior. They know this instinctively. They have no purpose for existing. They don’t articulate this directly. They act it out indirectly by throwing themselves into acts of symbolic importance because they are not capable of acts of importance.
And now for something completely different.
An act of symbolic importance.
SCOTT SIMON, HOST:
In 1838, Georgetown University sold 272 enslaved people to pay off a debt. Over the last several years, there has been a reckoning on campus as the school wrestles with its ties to slavery. It renamed several buildings that had honored people involved in the slave trade. Some descendants of that original group of enslaved people are now enrolled at the university.
This week, Georgetown undergraduate students voted to set up a fund that would pay reparations to descendants of slaves the school owned. Hannah Michael helped write that resolution. She is a sophomore, who joins us now from campus. Ms. Michael, thanks so much for being with us.
HANNAH MICHAEL: Thank you for having me.
SIMON: And how would the money in this fund be used?
MICHAEL: So the referendum proposes a $27.20 fee added to the cost of attendance semesterly at Georgetown University. It’s designated by five students and five descendants, who would be democratically elected. And they would utilize the funds to work on projects or initiatives meant to empower and support descendant communities – things like eyeglass exams, things like Internet access, paving roads.
So we included things like that as recommendations so that they’re nonbinding in order to allow the descendants and students on the board to really sit down and to analyze the needs of descendant communities and to collaboratively come up with the best way to address those needs.
SIMON: You’re a student at Georgetown in 2019. Why was this important to you?
MICHAEL: It’s important to me because this university’s modern existence is possible because of that 1838 sale. It’s important to me because as an American citizen, I know that this country was founded upon the labor of enslaved African-American people. So to me, this is really my way of using the resources that I have to empower others – resources that I have because of the ancestors of descendants.
SIMON: Let me ask you a question I gather some of your fellow students have asked. Why should today’s students, including African-American students, whose families already have to pay tens of thousands of dollars in tuition, have to pay to support a fund to try to compensate for sins that were committed 180 years ago?
MICHAEL: I think that what’s been helpful is recognizing that while the university committed moral sins and should go through the process of morally rectifying that history, that slaveholding legacy, Georgetown students, as beneficiaries and members of the Georgetown University community, also have a similar obligation.
SIMON: This week’s vote, as I don’t have to tell you, was nonbinding. The board of trustees would have to implement it. I wonder if you’ve spoken with anyone on that board, have any idea how they’re inclined.
MICHAEL: I think that there’s a lot of uncertainty about what will happen next. I think that this is a really great opportunity for the board of trustees to move from dialogue to action because all they have to do is empower and validate the work that has already been done by students by allowing for this resource, this board, to exist.
SIMON: About a third of the students voted the other way. What would you say to them?
MICHAEL: I would encourage them to develop a personal connection with Georgetown University’s slaveholding legacy. This isn’t about punishment. This is not a punitive measure. This is about using resources, giving back resources. I think that once students really make that connection, it’s actually really beautiful to see how empathetic and to see how compassionate a lot of Georgetown students are on this issue.
SIMON: Hannah Michael, who is a sophomore and activist at Georgetown University, thanks so much for being with us.
MICHAEL: Thank you so much.
These descendants of slaves have it better than almost anyone on the entire continent of Africa.
As a slave descendant in the United States you have roads, electricity, indoor plumbing, flush toilets, affirmative action, student loans, welfare, food stamps, Obamacare, democracy, white liberals kissing you ass and begging for your forgiveness, iPhones, air conditioning, credit cards, internet, voting and any time all that isn’t enough you can play the race card.
Yes. How about we seek equality by giving money to people based on their race while pretending that race is a social construct.
Wonder what Michael looks like? I know you do. And you know that appearance is ideology.
Wonder no more.
