Our Way of Life

"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done." - Ronald Reagan

Political Correctness — The Revenge of Marxism

Fjordman has an excellent essay here about PC, which I strongly recommend everyone read. Here is a comment I added at the bottom, but which is stand-alone, so I thought I would just post it here as well. Pessimistic? Yes, but I guess I am just in that mood.

Political correctness has both an exoteric and esoteric level to it. For the masses, there is the exoteric teaching of tolerance, equality, anti-racism, etc. At the esoteric level however, which no doubt includes a great deal of former/current communists and leftists, there is a great deal more realization of who the "bad" guys are, with no need for the propaganda-values. It never ceases to amaze me when people act perplexed by, or shout "hypocrite!" at, instances of PC discriminating against certain (or a certain) group(s). The talk of equality et al is just sugar to make the medicine go down easier; but real PC is discriminative and designed to persecute some over others.

At this time, PC is coercive, but only at the individual level. If you violate it, say at work, you will face consequences roughly proportional to your violation. There is nothing anything an individual can do about it, besides being a martyr. Any effective resistance must come in the collective, not at the individual level.

Can we wait out PC? I don't think we can, though I realize some people are hoping that we can.

PC doesn't have to convert us, it just has to keep us inert and paralyzed until the reinforcements arrive.

Right now, in the US where the situation is perhaps among the most progressed in the Western World, among recent births about 45% are from minority mothers (i.e. other than non-Hispanic white). When factoring in births to non-Hispanic white with a minority father, the figure is probably around ~47%. Also, if I am correct Arabs and a few others who we would normally consider "minorities" are counted as non-Hispanic white. Nor do these figures factor in people currently born in third world countries that will immigrate to the US in the next 20 years. In any case, this is what I mean by reinforcements. (Source: Link, US Department of Health and Human Services, 2004 preliminary data)

Once more for emphasis: PC doesn't have to convert us, it just has to keep us inert and paralyzed until the reinforcements arrive.

This is a very very depressing situation; frankly I don't know if all of the West is going to survive. Most Americans don't want violence--and I count myself first among that group. But in 20 years, what options are we going to have that we will want to pick from? My guess is that barring rather rapid change here, by the mid 2020's we are going to see emigration from the US into Canada, Alaska, Oz, and a few other places, by large numbers of Americans. America as we know it is going to become Brazil, North, I fear.

I think that Europe still has a chance; it at least has something to hold onto, namely a sense of history and identify, not to mention much better numbers.

Bad Eagle

Dr Yeagley at Bad Eagle has been writing some superb material lately. I recommend giving it a read and passing it along to anyone you know who has not yet "seen the light". In the latest post, he discusses the growing trend of African "migration", Third World idiocy, and Kipling's view of the ultimately doomed fate of the "white man's burden".

Yet, such "migrations" are the most powerful testimony there is to the failure of the Third World, where people multiply mindlessly, carelessly, foolishly, and can't seem to reason from cause to effect. The concept of self-control does not exist, apparently. Having children is mistakenly associated with living, with advancing, with prosperity, or some such idiotic notion. They suffer daily and constantly from overpopulation and its attendant horrors, yet, no one seems to be able to communicate to them that a change of live values is obviously in order.

Liberals have incessantly tried to dignify the Mexican desperados and bandidos as "immigrants" or "migrants." Trespassing is a natural, evolutionary process. Demographic change is unavoidable. So now the Left must call the African suicidals "immigrants" and "migrants" too. The heart-breaking prospect of shoving your friends and relatives in a leaky boat, setting out to sea without chart or compass, is a noble, natural acti of migration.

Leftists must be murderers at heart. To encourage such suicide, to romanticize such destitution, for the sole purpose--not to help the lost--but to gain political power, is surely complicite to mass murder. These hordes of the lost are used by the lying liberals, plain and simply. These most misfortunate are so helpless they are literally casting themselves out to sea, in the hopes of being found and cared for. They care nothing for their lives. Life has not cared for them.

The problem is, many of them care nothing for anyone else's live, either. Cruelty is malignant. That's part of what's wrong with Wrong. It's spreads.

But the Third World is not some Frankenstein creation of the Christian west, bound about the neck like a haunting guilt piece. Rudyard Kipling already explained that in "The White Man's Burden" (1899). He made it clear that the white Christian duty was to bring light to the dark side, to redeem ignorant, to sacrifice all to uplift the fallen. But he also recognized that it was hopeless. It was merely the duty of the white Christian to work for the betterment of the darkies. It wasn't something that was to be expected to turn out well.

The Perfect Storm?

It is quite surprising to watch the force of the current popular immigration opposition when one considers the state of the US economy. Obviously, the average American is no where near as aware of the problem of immigration and majority-inversion as he should be. None the less, the giant is waking in the American Street, and all this with little appreciable component of the message concerning employment or loss of jobs to immigrants. It is a tribute to the strength of the economy that Bush and Co can even speak of jobs "Americans are not willing to do".

What makes this so very interesting though is just what a perfect storm is awaiting us when the economy takes its next cyclic downturn. Consider the two forces that will be at work: First, there will be the millions of unemployed Americans feeling the effect of a borderless nation as they try to compete with the locust of the Third World. Secondly however, there will be the 20 million plus illegal, as well as countless "legal" Hispanics also running out of work. How will they react? Will they go home? Try to squeeze Americans out of jobs by intimidation? Will they form mass "protests" for government intervention, welfare, make-work projects? And what will happen if the millions of "family oriented", "freedom loving", immigrants take to the streets to do more than just peacefully protest?

When average Joe American starts to look around the ideological and political landscape for answers as to what went so terribly wrong, will we be ready? Will we have a concise, easy to understand message? The neo-cons had to their advantage the meme that "lack of freedom causes terrorism"--granted, it was false, but it was viral in pandemic proportions. Can we distil our message down to something that simple, while still keeping it as "non-offensive" as possible so as to not retard transmission? What might such a meme or set of memes be?

If we fail to create a virally transmittable message, chances are that this popular uprising will fall yet again into the hands of the same old gang. And this may be the last chance we get to set things straight here in the US.

Zach is Back

I apologize for the lack of resent blogging as of late. Partly a product of a hectic schedule, but also a result of the inability to set in front of a computer for long during this spring weather--the lake is just so much more enticing.

Still, it is obvious that the pace of history is quickening. Things are now spinning at quite a rate: Bush's speech, illegal alien rallies, bills in congress for and against illegal immigration. Even more, suddenly everyone seems to be aware of the Hispanic problem. Everyone is talking about it, either explicitly or cryptically: men, women, the rich, the poor and the professional class. To a degree unimaginable even a year ago, people seem to be talking about the problem with surprising freeness.

How much optimism does this deserve? I am not quite sure. Saying there is a problem with illegal immigration or even mass immigration generally is a start, but it is a far step from fully admitting the vulnerability and importance of our shared core identity as Americans as being a fundamentally Northern European, particularly British, offshoot nation. Nor is there really any attempt to address the problem of why our society seems to have lost the will to exist, or what to do with our elite that are trying to constantly derail us. Nor is there much in the way of an attempt to express a positive identity and vision for our nation beyond just reacting to the latest outrages (illegal immigration, terrorism, etc). Nor is there the realization by most that one of the reasons for the illegal alien problem is the lack of Whites being organized politically the same way as blacks or Latinos or Jews.

In other words, we are making some progress at addressing the symptoms, but we still have a long, long way to go for a cure. Let us all hope for the best.

Most Britons Support BNP Policies

An interesting article, from the Guardian, which reports on a poll showing that the majority of th e British now support the basic policies of the BNP.

A majority of people back the British National Party's policies, according to a new poll.

But the YouGov survey found that many people disown the policies once they are associated with the BNP.

The poll, commissioned by Sky News, comes ahead of local elections next week when there are fears the BNP could make an electoral breakthrough.

It found that 59% of people supported a halt to all further immigration to the UK - one of the BNP's main pledges - when they were not told of the far-right group's association with the policy.

Among those who were told that it was a BNP commitment, support for the policy was only 48%.

The BNP obviously has its share of issues, of which I don't have to mention. However, to the extent that they are essentially the sole supporters of common-sense action for the preservation of one of the most important of any Western countries, they must be applauded.

An Early Ray of Dawn?

This article from the Telegraph has some very encouraging news regarding a growing popularity of the BNP with white British families. Perhaps it is more of a protest vote, but as long as the BNP can produce practical, realistic people to take office, and not one-issue candidates, I'm not sure why the move would not be permanent.

White working-class families feel so neglected by the Government and angered by immigration that they are deserting Labour and flocking to the British National Party, a minister admitted yesterday.

In a sensational claim, Margaret Hodge, one of Tony Blair's closest allies, said that eight out of 10 white people in her east London constituency of Barking are threatening to vote for the far-Right party in next month's local elections. Once traditional Labour supporters are angry at a lack of affordable housing - and blame immigration, and Labour, for the changes.

"They can't get a home for their children, they see black and ethnic minority communities moving in and they are angry," said Mrs Hodge, the employment minister. "When I knock on doors I say to people, 'are you tempted to vote BNP?' and many, many, many - eight out of 10 of the white families - say 'yes'. That's something we have never seen before, in all my years. Even when people voted BNP, they used to be ashamed to vote BNP. Now they are not." Mrs Hodge said the pace of ethnic change in her area had frightened people. "What has happened in Barking and Dagenham is the most rapid transformation of a community we have ever witnessed.

Now This is Getting Juicy

Drudge is reporting major new "pro-illegal" marches across the country soon.

Lawrence Auster reports:

...guess who will be addressing the illegal aliens’ rally in Dallas? The president’s nephew, George P. Bush. America’s “royal” family isn’t subtle, is it?
Also worth reading is this article, via Auster, by James Pinkerton:

The immigration issue is turning. As Congress debates the issue—especially the bipartisan plan for a half-million new "guest workers" to enter America each year—a peaceful revolution is taking place in politics.

For perspective on the situation, we might turn to a past student of revolutionary change, Karl Marx. Marx was wrong about communism, but he understood the dynamics of political upheaval. So let's pull out The Communist Manifesto, written in 1848, and follow along:

When the struggle "nears the decisive hour," the ruling class suffers from "dissolution." After this breakup, "a small section of the ruling class cuts itself adrift, and joins the revolutionary class." This was Marx's key insight into change: Yes, the revolution would come from below, but it would need help from those who understood the ruling class and its ways. Only the ruling-class breakaways, Marx suggested, would have the capacity for "comprehending the historical movement as a whole."


...finally, the ruling class is suffering dissolution; some members are even switching sides, joining the one-nation-building, border-securing revolution. Writing in the Post, centrist columnist Robert Samuelson declared that the guest-worker program, jointly championed by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), was a "bad bargain" that would have the United States "importing poverty."

Either Americans are going to cower in fear from these mobs, or we are going to be forced more and more outside the box, politically, in redefining what is discussable in American (and Western) politics. Let's hope for the best.
