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.”

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.
