The Z-Man Had a Very Interesting Post Yesterday – The Cancer of Fanaticism

The Z-Man posits that the ideologies can differ but the “true believer” is what gives them their strength and their frightening ferocity and consequences.

“The only person I have read, other than myself, who bothered to contemplate the mindset of the typical Nazi, Bolshevik or Progressive was Eric Hoffer. His classic book, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements, is the field guide to understanding the mind of the political zealot. Over the years I have referenced it many times, when posting about the American Left. Hoffer’s book is not the definitive work, more of a skeleton key to unlock a mode of analysis. It is a starting point in thinking about the Left.”

Very interesting read.

On–Line Article Review – TheZMan – The Managerial Clique

http://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=15101

Whether you agree with all, some or none of what TheZMan writes, I don’t think you can doubt his analytical ability.  In this article he paints a pretty convincing case for the current American power structure being basically a bunch of interlocking old boy networks stretching across industry, academia, media and the government bureaucracies.  Now that’s hardly an original concept but what he stresses is that the pettiness and parochial nature of the mindset allows us to understand how for instance, the Swamp’s attack on Trump works.  It’s Frasier at the FBI meeting up on the Vineyard with his old prep school buddy Chad at the New York Times to plant a story about Russian collusion by this gauche upstart Trump.  It’s Everett at the EPA calling up fellow Yalie, Chaz at MIT’s Climate Institute to schedule a symposium announcing the latest “Climate Change Doomsday Milestone” and by the way, “let’s get together for a last weekend in the Hamptons.”  Looking at it in that context, allows us to see how the bureaucracy can thrive whether the President is W or Obama.  As long as you play ball with them and allow them their prerogatives they’ll play ball with you and even work to destroy your enemies, well, as long as they’re the wrong kind of people, of course.

Reading this makes it a little easier to understand how it all works but is the play forcing them to play ball with us while slowly draining the swamp or just nuking the swamp.  I’m not sure what it would be like to have two million unemployed WASPs whose only job skills are manipulating bureaucratic power for fun and profit but I think I’m starting to warm to the idea.  Everyone who works in the cold-blooded world of modern-day mid-level corporate life knows that every day you will be challenged with proving to the company that they actually need your services.  Can you imagine if Muffy or Chad were suddenly looking for work on their own merits?  Of course, their cousins heading up the Fortune 500 companies they’ll be applying to would like to help them out but it’s just that without the clout of their former positions in government there really isn’t a quid pro quo there.  And with so many of these swamp dwellers cut loose all at once there just aren’t enough feather-bedding opportunities to go around.  My gosh they might have to start out in the stock room.  Oh, but wait there is no stock room anymore it’s been outsourced to Amazon and Fedex.  Sorry.

Seriously, none of this stuff is surprising.  It’s as old as the priestly class in Sumer.  People form hierarchies and use them to feather their own nests.  But at a certain point the parasitic load overwhelms the vitality of the host and either a vermifuge is administered or the host dies.  Draining the swamp is another way of saying worming the United States.  It can be done.  But it takes a courageous mean bastard to do it right.  I think Trump could be that.

Z-Man Has a Podcast on the Social Contract

The Z-Man, in addition to possessing the Voice of Saruman, does an excellent job of chronicling the evolution of  political theory.  Even for anyone who considers himself an accomplished student of political science this podcast is worth listening to.  And the ending brings things right up to the present age of identity politics, social justice hysteria and right wing reaction.  Highly recommended.

Z-Man and I Seem to be Hearing the Same Things

In a recent post, Why is the New Right Successful? I ended by saying, “Donald Trump is our Northern Star and we will follow him as long as he can withstand the onslaught.  If he falls then we’ll be waiting for the spark to ignite the powder keg.  Because it’s long been primed.”  It was interesting to read Z-Man’s latest post entitled “Waiting For The Spark.”  I guess it’s getting kind of unanimous that both sides are getting ready for the dust up.  And which side is readiest for the consequences?  Disrupting a relatively comfortable life is not the easiest thing in the world to do.  But either way everyone seems to sense that something’s gotta give.  Hope it’s them and not us.

The ZMan Has Written an Important Post

Everybody talks revolution but ZMan is talking about how you get the population to follow you there.  The 1-2 punch is to delegitimize the current regime to capture the moral high ground  then build your own counter culture to take advantage of the moral vacuum.  That sounds right.  My take is that because allows anti-white racism and openly allows a flood of illegal immigrants to disenfranchise the existing citizenry it is shown to be either imcompetent or traitorous and therefore illegitimate.  And I see the way that the Overton Window has been shifting, especially in the last year or so.  I think this is the way things will happen.  I highly recommend this post.

Can a Recognizable America Survive a Majority-Minority Future? – Part 2

In the first part of this post I was looking at the contention that a majority-minority United States would devolve into a Lebanon style multi-ethnic state where one of the tribes would dominate the other groups by threat of force.  I don’t see this as necessarily inevitable.  Switzerland is an example of a multi-ethnic state that doesn’t involve coercive means.  I said I would discuss what things would need to be done to avoid the erasure of the America we know.

I think the biggest problem currently plaguing modern-day America is that a divisive ideology has been allowed to infest schools, colleges and other institutions.  This ideology is leftism and it is inherently anti-American propaganda.  It attacks all facets of traditional life.  And piece by piece it has been allowed to assume the role of normalcy.  And always by some twisted logic, justice and kindness are used as the excuse for injustice and oppression.  So, to improve the lot of minorities and women, white men must be discriminated against by means of affirmative action.  And to make sexually confused people not feel uncomfortable a wedding baker has to either be coerced into pretending he believes in same sex marriage or bankrupted and driven out of business.  Confronting these things is the obvious and effective way to put a stop to the primary effects of this poisonous ideology.  But it’s just as important to oppose the propaganda and proselytizing efforts that are taking place in schools and corporations.  And that will require national, local and individual action.  President Trump has taken the first action by appointing conservative judges to the federal courts and specifically the Supreme Court.  Once these judges begin removing constitutional protection behind some of these programs like “same sex marriage” the States can make laws to eliminate some of these egregious court overreaches.  And once those laws are in place local groups like PTAs and school districts can start eliminating the impact these programs have on children.  At the college level it will be necessary to concentrate on the State and local colleges.  The Ivy League and lesser private colleges are very heavily infested with leftists and will probably have to be avoided until they either change or go broke.

It goes without saying that some States like East and West Coast blue states will resist any reversal of these policies.  It would be unrealistic to believe that just a few years will be needed to change this situation.  I assume the only way for blue state residents to avoid the leftist regimes they live under would be to move to red states.

As for the demographic shift to a majority minority population, I would say that many local areas with overwhelming minority populations will go the same route as Boston did with the Irish and New York did with Eastern European Jews.  People will vote in their own kind.  But if this fails to bring the American Dream, they will vote for someone else who will.  People coming to America are looking for the peace and prosperity they’ve heard about.  If a Chinese immigrant living in the Research Triangle in North Carolina has a choice to vote for a white pro-business republican or a Chinese Occupy Wall Street socialist I think the republican has a pretty good chance of winning the vote.  And if it’s a choice between a white republican and a black democrat from the inner city then I don’t think the black democrat has a chance.  As for the impoverished third world refugees currently flooding the country and clogging up the welfare rolls, they need to be ejected.  The simplest way to do that is cut off the social services and enforce the laws targeting employers of illegal immigrants.  And in general, social benefits need to be eliminated even for legal immigrants.  And finally, even legal immigration needs to be curtailed down to a trickle.

If all these ideas were pursued, it would go a long way to stabilizing this country and give us enough time to acculturate the current flood of immigrants.  Will it happen?  Hard to say.  But it will only happen if people demand it.  If we just sit back or vote in the same tired hacks, the Bushes and the Romneys, then the America we know will be replaced by a leftist nightmare where everything we believed in has been destroyed.  Trump has made a good start.  It’s up to all of us to keep the momentum going.

Can a Recognizable America Survive a Majority-Minority Future? – Part 1

The ZMan wrote a very interesting post called, “No Easy Answers.”  It’s an analysis of the consequences of large scale non-European immigration into the United States, its consequences and an opinion on the useful response that white Americans should have.  I’ll critique the essential portions of the essay to show what I think is the situation.  Note that I’ve cut and pasted several of his sentences together to save some space.  His text is in bold face font.

 

“Given current immigration and fertility numbers, America will be a majority-minority country within a generation. The crisis of our age is not just how we respond to this reality, but how we come to accept it.  The civic nationalists will move heaven and earth in order to avoid facing demographic reality.  For the recently red-pilled, all of their efforts were based on the belief that the solution was simple. Just red-pill everyone and the problem is solved.”

I agree with this analysis and the characterization of the reactions of the civic nationalists and the newly woke dissident right.

 

“The possibility that liberal democracy inevitably leads to cultural suicide is unpleasant, so even the red-pilled look the other way.  The fact is, another bit of that dreaded demographic reality is that what comes next cannot include the current system of governance. In a multicultural society, everyone’s primary loyalty is to their group. Liberal democracy assumes people are loyal to their narrow economic interests. In a majority-minority society, this cannot possibly work.  What comes next for us is what we see in the Middle East. In every country, one group dominates the rest, imposing their idea of order on the society. Saddam controlled Iraq for his people. The Persians run Iran. The Muslims run Lebanon, where every hill and valley may as well be its own country. The rule in multi-cultural, multi-tribal societies, is that one tribe rules the rest. That’s our future. The question is which groups will come to dominate the rest and what sort of system will they impose in order to remain in charge.”

ZMan’s thesis is that in a majority-minority society the form of government will devolve into a rule by the strongest tribe.  The implied condition is that the rule is enforced by the threat of military or street violence.  His examples are middle-eastern dictatorships.  I’m not convinced of this for a couple of reasons.  One reason is the existence of places like Switzerland and Singapore where a multi-ethnic state exists in a reasonably peaceful coexistence.  And secondly a case could be made that the immigration of the Irish and the Eastern and Southern Europeans during the late 19th and early 20th century was an analogous if not equivalent example of a majority-minority situation that while disrupting and modifying the United states, did not destroy the country.  The American culture was attractive and strong enough to subsume the new immigrant populations and produce a changed but recognizable United States.  The real difference this time is the degree to which there is a significant portion of the American people who are actively working to destroy the existing culture through anti-American and specifically anti-white activities and propaganda.  It seems to me the focus of white Americans should be identifying the people and institutions actively working to destroy our people and work to destroy them instead.  And the reason I think this will work is that recently there have been some successes.  The Supreme Court case where the wedding baker was exonerated based on freedom of religion.  The other recent Supreme Court decision that bears on this is the Ohio state law that allowed clearing the voting rolls of ineligible voters.  These affirmations of the clear intent of constitutional safeguards will allow the United States to continue to function as the rational and enlightened sort of country it’s always been.  And these rulings occurred even before Anthony Kennedy is replaced.  Once he has been, I could see a conservative Supreme Court ending affirmative action.  Now, the argument against this is that something like ending affirmative action will never be allowed to happen.

But that will be the test.  If the ZMan is right then even if the whole white population is “woke,” nothing will be done to alleviate the anti-white activity.  But if I’m right then with someone like Trump, a republican who’s actually on our side, we should make some headway and see some victories won.  In the next part of this post I’ll try to think of concrete actions that need to be taken.

More ZMan – A Very Long Interview on Luke Ford’s Podcast

ZMan was on a podcast with a guy named Luke Ford (link below).  It was almost three hours long!  But there was some very good information if you are looking for ZMan’s take on the way the future of a multi-racial America should be addressed.  A participant named Ecce got into a dispute with Z about what could be done about the changes taking place in America.  Ecce talked about running for elected office and some other ideas for turning around the demographic changes.  ZMan basically said that the only important action was to get the white population “woke” to the fact that they needed to vote their interests as white people in order to thrive.   The other take-away I heard from him was that he did not believe that republican democracy was going to be a workable political system in a minority-majority America.  So that was the gist of it.  He had a funny idea for helping wake people up.  He said we should leave little slips of paper in bookstore books that said “It’ alright to be white.”  Interesting idea.

So, it’s a very long podcast and I’ve given you the main ideas but it is an interesting discussion.  And the ZMan can get testy when he thinks someone isn’t saying something constructive.  My one thought is that what Trump is doing on immigration and the fight to get non-liberal judges can actually do a lot to help people on our side change conditions in America to something less unfair to the white population.  So I see the Trumpocalypse to be an outcome of white backlash against the Leftist attack.

The ZMan Has a Post “The Haunting” About the Disruption of Sex Roles in Western Society

http://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=14329

ZMan talks about the present disruption that afflicts young men and women and how it has led to all the aberrant behavior we see today.  His conclusion is that the society we’ve allowed to evolve no longer functions to bring men and women together to form normal functioning families.  Well, that seems accurate. But it doesn’t go into what needs to be done.  I think it goes without saying that leaving things the way they are will only make the problem worse.  What needs to happen is for the society at large to incentivize young people to get married and raise families.  Lobby for government policies that make families affordable; school vouchers, tax deductions for dependents and a subsidy for married stay at home moms, tax benefits for companies that provide family benefits to their employees.  And on the individual front it’s necessary for all of us to start recreating traditional social organizations to provide a place for young people to meet.  If the churches and the old line fraternal organizations have been converged and destroyed it’s necessary to form new ones.  With the Supreme Court finally out of liberal hands perhaps it’s possible that the right of free association may resurface and we can again organize our personal lives to exclude the mentally ill and the disruptively abnormal.  I think we’re in a bad place but I think it will improve when we have more control over the anti-traditional forces that are continuously attacking the normal roles of men and women in a functional society.  Anyway, that’s my thought.
