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.
