Equality Means No Idea Can Be Better Than Others

What they found especially egregious was Wax and Alexander’s observation that “All cultures are not equal.” That hissing noise you hear is the sharp intake of breath at the utterance of such a sentiment. The tort was compounded by Wax’s later statements in an interview that “Everyone wants to go to countries ruled by white Europeans” because “Anglo-Protestant cultural norms are superior.”

…As William Henry argued back in the 1990s in his undeservedly neglected book In Defense of Elitism, “the simple fact [is] that some people are better than others—smarter, harder working, more learned, more productive, harder to replace.” Moreover, Henry continued, “Some ideas are better than others, some values more enduring, some works of art more universal.” And it follows, he concluded, that “Some cultures, though we dare not say it, are more accomplished than others and therefore more worthy of study. Every corner of the human race may have something to contribute. That does not mean that all contributions are equal. . . . It is scarcely the same thing to put a man on the moon as to put a bone in your nose.”

Fahrenheit 451 updated,” The New Criterion, April 1, 2018

Apparently, no one bothered to think about what “equality” means. On the surface, it means that you treat everyone as if they were equal, but in reality, since they are not equal, that form of equality would still end in inequality, so instead it means that you subsidize the weaker. You deny their failings. You give them an extra boost. You champion their cause.

In the future, people will realize that equality is a destructive human virus that causes pathological self-destructive behavior. Like pacifism, it promises a life without struggle, which creates a uniform mediocrity because struggle is how improvement occurs. It also banishes the possibility of every finding better methods, since all must be equal so no culture is shamed by its failing methods.

How Does The Media Lie? By Confusing Definitions With Reality.

It’s hard to overlook this moronic tidbit:

Trump added that Amazon’s lobbying staff does not “include the Fake Washington Post” and that the newspaper, which is owned by billionaire and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, is a “lobbyist” and should register accordingly.

…The president has often conflated Bezos’ dual roles as Post owner and Amazon CEO. The two entities are separate.

“Trump escalates attack on Amazon, demands Washington Post register as ‘lobbyist’,” by Brent D. Griffiths, Politico, March 31, 2018

Technically… Eckshually… the two roles are separate, by definition. He owns the Post, and he serves as CEO at Amazon. In reality, he is in power at least through indirect influence in both places. The media uses a technicality to lie when they truth threatens them, and this is how the coasts have been manipulating the center of America for decades.

Making “Racism” Illegal Always Punishes The Majority

You would think people would learn. You would be wrong. People engage in the same old patterns, get the same bad results, and then rationalize the failure. Such is the case with the ongoing diversity experiment in South Africa, in which we are learning that when “racism” becomes illegal, it is only enforced against the population perceived to be highest.

Estate agent Vicki Momberg was sentenced on Wednesday to an effective two years in prison, following a racist rant towards police and emergency service workers which was caught on camera in February 2016 and which occurred after Momberg had experienced a smash-and-grab. The sentence was applauded by many for its strong anti-racism message, but also raises important questions about justice and society.

…One of the few bodies to voice criticism about the sentence was lobby group AfriForum, which said the ruling “confirms double standards in South Africa regarding race”.

Afriforum said that Momberg’s racist comments needed to be condemned, but questioned why the same approach was not taken towards black people who insulted white South Africans.

“Analysis: Why the Vicki Momberg racism sentence deserves scrutiny,” by Rebecca Davis, Daily Maverick, March 29, 2018

This double standard is not anomalous. Equality does not exist in nature, or we would not need to strive for it (as Leftists suggest we do). This means we are imposing it, and since we cannot make the lower more competent, it means penalizing the competent — the weak eating the strong — so that they can subsidize the less competent. This is the root of wealth transfer, socialism, diversity, and all other equality-based policy.

The Paris Statement: Europe Must Discover A Reason To Live.

Some 13 European thinkers issued an intellectual protest late last year against the assault on the Western heritage that has been raging on the Continent and in Britain for years. They called their 11-page document “The Paris Statement” and gave it a title: “A Europe We Can Believe In.” The Europe they believe in, write the 13 signatories (well-known in Europe, less so in America), is under threat of destruction from the forces of globalization, multiculturalism, and the EU managerial class, as well as growing anti-Christian prejudice.

…But we are witnessing the emergence of some powerful political currents within the general European population, manifest in increasingly populist voting patterns in France, Germany, Austria, and elsewhere. Hence the Paris Statement could become a significant intellectual underpinning for Europeans who are increasingly concerned about the direction of things in their homeland.

…The threat to Europe, says the Statement, comes from “a false understanding” of what Europe is and represents. This “false Europe” is the product of people who are “orphans by choice,” glorifying their vision “as the forerunner of a universal community that is neither universal nor a community.”

…The true Europe, on the other hand, encompasses a number of fundamental elements—a body of law that applies to all yet is limited in its demands; a shared understanding of political and cultural traditions and a fealty to those traditions; an appreciation of the nation state as “the political form that joins peoplehood with sovereignty”; a shared regard for the role of the Classical tradition in shaping the Western mind; and an understanding of Christianity as the religious bulwark of the civilization.

“The West Cannibalizes Itself,” by Robert W. Merry, The American Conservative, March 30, 2018

While this is a good start, they have not identified the problem. Since The Renaissance,™ the West has adored egalitarianism, or the idea that everyone can be an individualist together and things will turn out just fine. Instead, this brings about a mob mentality, which in turn weakens us morally and then, makes us hate ourselves for being whores.

Until people are willing to confront that, they are wasting their time as far as trying to save a civilization. They call for a renewed nationalism of “the political form that joins peoplehood with sovereignty” and a cultural revival, and these are great things, but without removing equality — including democracy, consumerism, diversity, feminism, and the other individualist “me first” ideas — it will go nowhere.

Genocide Report (March 27, 2018)

  • Mitt Romney: I’m ‘more of a hawk on immigration’ than Trump

    Want to see the free market at work in politics? Trump cut out ahead of the team by daring to talk about immigration and demographic replacement, so now former cucks are realizing that in order to compete and not get cut out like recent failed Republican candidates for local elections, they will have to take the lead back from Trump. Mitt may someday realize that his “47% comment” was his chance for the presidency and when he backed down off of that, he did irreparable damage to his brand. Maybe he can revitalize it however.

  • Zinke tells employees diversity isn’t important
  • You can tell that an idea is a walking corpse when people start viewing it as optional. In this life, what is not necessary is dead, and diversity has proven useless for finding high quality staffers, so it is being discarded. As this spreads, there will be a challenge to affirmative action, and if that falls, what makes this country so attractive to immigration will be effectively reduced. If the welfare state also falls, relatively few will want to come here.

  • Israeli chief rabbi calls black people ‘monkeys’
  • Across the globe, nationalist and xenophobic sentiment is rising. Why? Diversity is genocide, and people do not want to be genocided. Sometimes it takes the unfortunate form of rancor or scorn for other groups, but this will quickly be seized by saner minds who realize that all they have to do is say that diversity does not work.

Possible Reason For Bipedalism

Early ancestors of humankind may have taken to bipedalism for any number of reasons, but a gorilla at the Philadelphia Zoo recently found a new one: cleaner food:

When Louis has his hands full of tomatoes or other snacks, he walks upright like a human to keep food and hands clean, rather than the typical gorilla stance of leaning forward on his knuckles.

This suggests a possible interesting path in evolution. Early ancestors of humanity may have chosen bipedalism for the ability to carry food and other objects, marking a transition to the tool-making era of our forebears.

How To Convince An Ethnic Group To Kill Itself

I am told that killing a human individual is more difficult than people anticipate, at least. It takes more effort than expected, the sounds and smells are worse, and the cleanup is far more involved, at least according to local officers who track down first-time murderers. But killing off a whole ethnic group might be even easier.

It seems like something that should be done in some old-fashioned manner, like the British with their Boer concentration camps, the open pit executions in Eastern Europe, or the Communists starving whole regions into submission. In reality, it is more like hacking a computer: you just have to hack minds and lead them, in pursuit of some illusion, over a cliff and to their deaths.

We can be hacked through mental viruses, or even just deceptive language, because humans have programmable minds that respond more intensely to symbolic data than to direction perception of their surroundings, mainly because the latter requires much effort:

Book One, first verse, of the Book of John in the New Testament says cryptically: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” This has baffled Biblical scholars, but I interpret it as follows: Until there was speech, the human beast could have no religion, and consequently no God. In the beginning was the Word. Speech gave the beast its first ability to ask questions, and undoubtedly one of the first expressed his sudden but insatiable anxiety as to how he got here and what this agonizing struggle called life is all about. To this day, the beast needs, can’t live without, some explanation as the basis of whatever status he may think he possesses. For that reason, extraordinary individuals have been able to change history with their words alone, without the assistance of followers, money, or politicians.

This means that if you find a way to put into people’s heads that their demise is the right thing to do, or provides the best life possible for them, they will follow their doom as if it were their salvation. This reminds us of a great metaphor but also great hoax, the parable of the lemming, in which we were programmed to think ill of a species of small rodents purely by media manipulation:

So why is the myth of mass lemming suicide so widely believed? For one, it provides an irresistible metaphor for human behavior. Someone who blindly follows a crowd—maybe even toward catastrophe—is called a lemming. Over the past century, the myth has been invoked to express modern anxieties about how individuality could be submerged and destroyed by mass phenomena, such as political movements or consumer culture.

But the biggest reason the myth endures? Deliberate fraud. For the 1958 Disney nature film White Wilderness, filmmakers eager for dramatic footage staged a lemming death plunge, pushing dozens of lemmings off a cliff while cameras were rolling. The images—shocking at the time for what they seemed to show about the cruelty of nature and shocking now for what they actually show about the cruelty of humans—convinced several generations of moviegoers that these little rodents do, in fact, possess a bizarre instinct to destroy themselves.

When you think about the news media or entertainment, most of what it shows us is people who are engaging in self-destructive behavior and having fun or at least seeming important for doing so. And there is no mention of the cliff, as if it did not exist at all.

Does Diversity Cause Anti-Semitism?

Looking for articles about George F. Will and Zionism, I stumbled across the words of the words of a Holocaust revisionist about anti-Semitism from an interview with the neoconservative columnist:

At one point, and suddenly changing the subject, Will asked me why I think that anti-Semitism exists. I said that this is a complex issue, and that a better way to put it might be to ask why hostility toward Jews has persisted over so many centuries, and in so many different cultures.

I went on to say that I largely agreed with what Theodor Herzl, the founder of the modern Zionist movement, had written (in The Jewish State) on this issue. I mentioned that Herzl, along with many others, often referred to the relationship between Jews and non-Jews in society as “the Jewish question.”

Having approached this situation from the opposite direction, namely “what data patterns can we infer that might prevent genocide?,” I found this interesting, and not only because Herzl is one of my heroes. Herzl articulated one of those rare arguments that is not against another race, but against the concept of diversity itself, following in the footsteps of Plato and Aristotle.

In Herzl’s view, the cause of anti-Semitism was diversity itself, or the fact that a foreign population within an ethnically-consistent population would stand out and become a scapegoat. He wrote about this after witnessing The Dreyfuss Affair and analyzing the psychology of the crowds, and his ideas led to the formation of modern (post-diaspora) Israel:

Herzl first encountered the anti-Semitism that would shape his life and the fate of the Jews in the twentieth century while studying at the University of Vienna (1882). Later, during his stay in Paris as a journalist, he was brought face-to-face with the problem. At the time, he regarded the Jewish problem as a social issue and wrote a drama, The Ghetto (1894), in which assimilation and conversion are rejected as solutions.

In 1894, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish officer in the French army, was unjustly accused of treason, mainly because of the prevailing anti-Semitic atmosphere. Herzl witnessed mobs shouting “Death to the Jews” in France, the home of the French Revolution, and resolved that there was only one solution: the mass immigration of Jews to a land that they could call their own. Thus, the Dreyfus Case became one of the determinants in the genesis of Political Zionism.

Herzl concluded that anti-Semitism was a stable and immutable factor in human society, which assimilation did not solve. He mulled over the idea of Jewish sovereignty, and, despite ridicule from Jewish leaders, published Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State, 1896). Herzl argued that the essence of the Jewish problem was not individual but national. He declared that the Jews could gain acceptance in the world only if they ceased being a national anomaly. The Jews are one people, he said, and their plight could be transformed into a positive force by the establishment of a Jewish state with the consent of the great powers. He saw the Jewish question as an international political question to be dealt with in the arena of international politics.

…Although at the time no one could have imagined it, Zionism led, only fifty years later, to the establishment of the independent State of Israel.

In his book The Jewish State, Herzl expanded on his earliest ideas: conversion and assimilation do not work, so Jews must either exist as (1) an isolated ethnic minority within host states — the condition of the diaspora — or (2) an ethnic group with its own state, a philosophy known as nationalism.

This leads back to the fundamental question: what is the cause of anti-Semitism? Some say that it is ethnic cruelty, others claim it is a legitimate response to the ethnic cruelty of Jews, but as Herzl found out and common sense dictates, people recognize that having a group of Other among them — whoever it is — is a form of slow genocide by outbreeding and therefore eventually lash out, leading to situations where whole villages unite to burn Jews alive in barns.

Diversity causes negative consequences for both host and minority populations and is unpopular with those who experience it while knowing of the alternative. It will lead to the eradication of indigenous peoples, and this makes them withdraw from society entirely, a condition known as atomization.

It is not surprising that as diversity thrashes a society to death, there will be outbursts which as mis-directed at the foreign population instead of diversity itself. Those who find themselves irked by diversity should heed this lesson, and instead of attack the Other, attack the policy of Othering the majority, namely diversity.

Abraham Lincoln Used Immigration As A Method Of War And Democide

Back in 1864, as he was looking for ways to finish off the rebellious South that wanted to stay with the original interpretation of the American Constitution, President Abraham Lincoln signed an act to encourage immigration:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the President of the United States is hereby authorized, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to appoint a Commissioner of Immigration, who shall be subject to the direction of the Department of State, shall hold his office for four years, and shall receive a salary at the rate of $2,500 a year. The said Commissioner may employ not more than three clerks, of such grade as the Secretary of State shall designate, to be appointed by him, with the approval of the Secretary of State, and to hold their offices at his pleasure.

And what is the purpose of this act?

And be it further enacted; That no emigrant to the United States who shall arrive after the passage of this act shall be compulsively enrolled for military service during the existing insurrection, unless such emigrant shall voluntarily renounce under oath his allegiance to the country of his birth, and declare his intention to become a citizen of the United States.

Declare your intention to become a citizen and you can join the military. That is relevant because:

And be it further enacted, That all contracts that shall be made by emigrants to the United States in foreign countries, in conformity to regulations that may be established by the said Commissioner, whereby emigrants shall pledge the wages of their labor for a term not exceeding twelve months to repay the expenses of their emigration, shall be held to be valid in law

In your homeland, you can sign up for a one-year stint in the American military and have Uncle Sam pay to bring you over. Aha.

And be it further enacted, That there shall be established in the City of New-York an office to be known as the United States Emigrant Office; and there shall be appointed, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, an officer for said City, to be known as Superintendent of Immigration, at an annual salary of two thousand dollars; and the said Superintendent may employ a clerk of the first class; and such Superintendent shall, under the direction of the Commissioner of Immigration, make contracts with the different railroads and transportation companies of the United States for transportation tickets, to be furnished to such immigrants, and to be paid for by them, and shall, under such rules as may be prescribed by the Commissioner of Immigration, protect such immigrants from imposition and fraud, and shall furnish them such information and facilities as will enable them to proceed in the cheapest and most expeditious manner to the place of their destination.

Government will help relocate them…

APPROVED, July 4,1864.

…and it goes into law on a symbolic date.

Lincoln was fighting a long war against the South, and he wanted to crush them permanently, and could think of no better method than importing an army, then settling it in the conquered lands, so that he could break up the ethnic populations there. As Plato predicted, importing foreigners was a method of staying in power and also, crushing the population and making them subservient.

Jedwabne: Genocide Often Occurs By Popular Action

We tend to think of violent genocide as occurring at the hands of jackbooted thugs from one extremist political movement or another. The reality is often more prosaic: goaded by the pains of diversity, locals take it upon themselves to remove the Other, as happened in the formerly Russian-occupied Polish village of Jedwabne:

After being controlled by Russia for two years, Jedwabne, a small town in northeastern Poland, was captured by Germany on June 22, 1941. One of the first questions the Poles asked the Nazis, their new rulers, was if it was permitted to kill the Jews.

According to Jan Gross’s book, Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, the Nazis tried to persuade the Poles to keep at least one Jewish family from each profession, but the Poles responded, “We have enough of our own craftsmen, we have to destroy all the Jews, none should stay alive.”

Gross writes that Jedwabne’s mayor agreed to help facilitate a massacre and that Poles from local villages came in to watch and celebrate the event as a holiday. About half the men of Jedwabne’s 1,600 Catholic community participated in torturing Jedwabne’s 1,600 member Jewish community, corralling them into a barn, which was then set ablaze.

In future times, people may see genocide and democide as the complex monsters that they are: driven not so much by political reality but by day-to-day frustrations and the tendency of different groups to behave in different ways, causing resentment. In many Russian-occupied areas, the natives identified Jews with the Communist party, in part because so many Jews were Communists:

While in 1934 38.5% of the top officials in the NKVD were Jews, this number was decreased to 31.9% in July 1937, 3.9% in September 1938 and 3.5% in January 1940.

This may simply reflect cultural differences: for most of the world, Communism is a tempting ideology, although traditional European cultures have resisted it, and so members of foreign groups would be more prone to join those parties. In addition, as minority groups, they cannot identify with the majority and so are drawn to anti-majoritarian politics such as socialism and its parent, egalitarianism.
