America is a MYTH

Donald Trump’s Unstoppable Virality

By Emma Roller Dec. 29, 2015 (LINK to article)
 "we need him [Donald Trump], as his hat promises, to make America great again."

The important thing to recognise here is that Donald Trump's "America", like everyone else's, is a MYTH, tailored his own, and every other individual American's, personal world view.

This may seem trivial, but it's not, and it is vitally important that we develop a better, more realistic, understanding of what we mean and understand by "America", or whatever state you are a citizen of, because we are taught to identify with it as our NATION, which taps into our inherent and extremely powerful tribal nature, which the state's ruling elites manipulate and exploit in their own narrow and short-sighted self-interests, which they sell to the rest of us as the "national self-interest", when in reality it is no such thing.

Our tribal affiliations massively influence our perception of social and political reality, including that of academics, whom we look to as authorities, but who are no closer to a realistic view of social and political reality than anyone else.

The only way to get a handle on this is to view ourselves, our society and situation from a human-evolutionary perspective, which, however, in overreaction to the half-baked ideas of "social Darwinism", which the Nazis hijacked, abused and discredited, a previous generation of academics made a taboo of.

See BLOG in which I make a fresh attempt at developing such an evolutionary view of ourselves and our society and situation.

Fate of the West in the Balance

Cracks in the Liberal Order

By Ross Douthat  Dec. 26, 2015 (LINK to article)

I submitted two comments on this article, both of which, after some delay, were approved and published, but I thought that I would publish them here anyway.

First Post:
"late-modern liberalism might have a certain tendency toward suicide"
EVERY civilisation tends towards suicide, because of their perverted Darwinian nature, which, because of the taboo a previous generation of academics placed on viewing our own species from an evolutionary perspective (an OVERREACTION to the Nazis having hijacked and abused the half-baked ideas of social Darwinism for their own evil purposes), there has been a failure to recognise.

And why would they WANT to recognise it, given how well "the current order" works for them?

The human brain surely evolved to want to maintain the environment on which it depends, especially when it has been relatively successful within it, as everyone who is anyone in society invariably has been, and rationalises its view of social, political and economic reality accordingly.

We (especially academics) are bound to see ourselves as a "rational animal", when in fact we are far more a "rationalising animal", which means that unlike in the material sciences, where our models of reality now correlate closely with it, in the social sciences they don't. Thus the author's difficulty in "imagining the basic liberal democratic capitalist order cracking up".

The current order is indeed on course to crack up, and if we want something better, rather than worse, to come of it, we urgently need a much better model of the reality of our situation: http://philosopherkin.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/civilisation-evolutionary-cul-de-sac.html

Second Post:
"it’s been hard to imagine the basic liberal democratic capitalist order cracking up . . "
The Germans have a word for this: Zweckoptimismus (self-serving optimism).
" . . let alone envision what might take its place."
Looking back to premodern times, would Ptolemaic astronomers, alchemists, or Galenic doctors have been able to imagine what would one day replace their "sciences" and their world? I think not.

And because of their lack of a human-evolutionary, i.e. Darwinian, perspective, the present-day social and political sciences are still stuck in a pre-Copernican, i.e. pre-Darwinian, dark age.

Responsible for this is something the NYT's Editorial Board itself warns of in a recent editorial, The Price of Fear:
“In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism comes the risk that society will lose its way."
Western civilisation has indeed lost its way, in overreaction to Nazism, which hijacked and abused the half-baked ideas of social Darwinism for its own evil purposes, making a taboo of the whole idea of viewing ourselves, our civilisation and situation from a human-evolutionary perspective, thus blinding us to its perverted Darwinian nature.

Healthy Darwinian nature serves' a population's survival, while perverted Darwinian nature leads to its demise. What do I mean by "population"? That is something that needs to be discussed, but we can't discuss, or arrive at an understanding of anything, so long as this taboo remains in place.

America is NOT a Nation

The Real Victims of Victimhood

By Arthur C. Brooks Dec. 26, 2015 (LINK to article)
"It is still in our hands to . .  cultivate a nation of strong individuals . . . "
This might make some sense if America were in fact a nation, but it is not, nor any other state I know of, but a mercenary "patron state" deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, to their own personal advantage and that of favoured (especially wealthy and academic) clients, at the expense of society at large.

What the state does is to conflate and confound very different aspects of the original tribal environment in which human nature evolved, long before the first states and civilisation emerged from it. It poses as our nation (intra- and inter-tribal environment), while at the same time facilitating society's self-exploitation (as an extra-tribal environment), which must ultimately lead to its self-destruction.

The academics we look to as authorities in understanding society and the state fail to recognise this profound truth, because they are themselves privileged clients (if not actual employees) of their respective "patron state", with a massive personal self-interest (subconscious more than conscious) in rationalising and defending its role, self-image (as our "nation") and ideologies (social, political, economic and racial, formerly religious), on which the state bases its claim to moral and knowledgeable authority (see BLOG in which I elaborate).

My Response to George Yancy's Dear White America

Dear White America

By George Yancy, Dember 24 2015  (LINK to article)

I love, i.e. identify with, my own, white, race, just as you, George, clearly identify with your own, black, race, which is natural and healthy human nature.

The only people I have ever hated have been other white people, and when I look at history I see far more evidence of racial SELF-hatred (white people doing terrible things to other white people, including WW1, the Holocaust and the blanket bombing of German cities) than I do for white hatred of other races.

For more than half a century we have been taught to equate "racial prejudice", which was wrongly made responsible for the Holocaust, with racial hated. This was an understandable, but misconceived overreaction to the evil of Nazism, which was quickly incorporated into an ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt and ever since has served as an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control (mainly of whites over whites), just as medieval church ideology once did.

It is the age-old strategy of divide and rule, which I elaborate on in this BLOG:

I want racial harmony as much as you do, but it has to be based on truthfulness. And the truth is that race matters; not in the way that racial supremacists believe it does, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity.

Race matters because identity matters, which is what we need to be clear about, instead of allowing the state and capital to keep us in a state of confusion, which they exploit to their own power-political and commercial advantage.


Thoroughly Deceived by Confirmation Bias

The Trap of Confirmation Bias

By Prof. Thomas Gilovich (LINK to article)
"The brain's job is to make sense of the world, and it does so — easily, rapidly and generally accurately . . "  
The brain's job is indeed to make sense of the world, but the author is being wildly overoptimistic about its accuracy, i.e. the extent to which it correlates with objective reality, which is why "We're Doomed", as Roy Scranton writes in a recent op-ed.

The sense our brain is capable of making of the world was good enough for facilitating our survival in the environment in which it evolved, long before the first states and civilisations emerged from it, thereby creating an artificial environment shaped over the centuries by society's ruling elites to their own personal advantage, at the expense of society at large.

The sense we make of this environment is largely determined by the personal self-interests of these ruling elites and the academics they employ to create a "national narrative. It is an environment, social order and narrative which serves them and their favoured (especially wealthy and academic) clients very well, and which they thus want to maintain, despite it being inherently unjust, inhumane and unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable and overpopulated planet, which their own self-interests blinds them to.

I elaborate on these ideas, which have the potential to provide the understanding that might yet save us from ourselves, in this and appended BLOGS.

Time to Take Human Tribalism Seriously

For Many, Faith Comes at a High Price

By Nicholas Kristof, Dec. 19,2015 (LINK to article)


All these problems - which is an understatement, I know - relate to human tribal nature (tribalism) which it can be no coincidence we are taught to trivialise, ridicule or demonise, instead of giving it the attention and study it deserves.

The reason for this is simple: the state deceitfully poses as our tribe or nation itself and doesn't want too much light cast on how it manipulates and exploits our tribal nature by so doing.

Our tribal nature is clearly something that can only be understood from a human-evolutionary, i.e. Darwinian, perspective, which a previous generation of academics made a taboo of, in overreaction to initial attempts which (as first attempts at anything new and difficult often do) went horribly wrong, especially when the Nazis hijacked the half-baked ideas of social Darwinism to justify their insane racial ideology, eugenics and euthanasia programmes, and wars of aggression.

This was part of a much broader overreaction to Nazism which we urgently need to recognise, develop an understanding of, and correct: http://unapprovedcomments.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/the-wests-overreaction-to-nazism.html

Resolving Middle East Conflict via Better Understanding of the State

The Assassination in Israel That Worked

By Roger Cohen, Dec. 17 2015 (LINK to article)

It makes a nice change to find myself agreeing with Mr Cohen on an issue, as I do on this one.

What would help resolve the conflict between Jews and Arabs is a better understanding of the nature of the state itself, which academics, for reasons of self-interest, have not been entirely honest with us, or themselves, about.

I've developed a far more realistic understanding of the state, based on a human-evolutionary, i.e. Darwinian, perspective, which a previous generation of academics made a taboo of doing.

What such a perspective reveals is that contrary to what is widely believed, there is no such thing as a "nation state", just mercenary "patron states" deceitfully posing as nations, in order to legitimise themselves, their ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse.

At first I thought that Israel was perhaps an exception, but have since come to realise that it is not, which gives me added confidence in my theory, which I elaborate on in this and appended BLOGS.

Humans are Inherently Prejudiced - so Why Demonise it?

The ‘Benefits’ of Black Physics Students

By Jedidah C. Isler, Dec. 17, 2015 (LINK to article)

Why can't we simply accept human nature for what it is, i.e. inherently prejudiced about everyone and everything, especially race, which relates to our natural inclination to identify with and thus favour our own tribe or ethnic group, and learn to deal with it in as rational and civilised fashion as possible?

The answer is simple: society has always been dominated by an elite of "moral supremacists" (formally the priesthood, now academia), who demonise different aspects of human nature, which it is then able to use, by exploiting our natural propensity for guilt, as an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control.

Post-racial multicultural ideology, with its demand for DIVERSITY, is, in effect, a secular replacement for the power-political role of medieval church ideology, whereby "original sin" (disobedience of divine, i.e. priestly/state authority) is replaced by "racial prejudice" (the natural human inclination - like original sin - to identity with members of one's own tribe, race or ethnic group, which was mistakenly made responsible for the Holocaust and equated with the evils of Nazi racism), and which only submission to priestly/academic/state ideology and authority can save us from eternal damnation for, not as heathens and heretics, as in the past, but as "bigots" and "racists".

I elaborate further on these ideas in this BLOG.

What Began as Overreaction to Nazism

Teacher Evaluations Could Be Hurting Faculty Diversity at Universities

By Carla D. Pratt (LINK to article)

It is inherent to human nature to be biased in favour of one's own tribe, race or ethnic group, but the American state, i.e. its academic elite (in collaboration with their European colleagues), whose example other elites are bound to follow, has embraced an ideology which demonises such prejudice as "racist", equating it with the evils of Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism.

What began as an understandable overreaction* to the madness and horrors of especially Nazi racial ideology, was quickly transformed into an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, a secular replacement, effectively, for the power-political role of medieval church ideology, with racial prejudice taking the place of original sin.

* The Editorial Board itself warns of the dangers of such overreaction in a recent editorial, The Price of Fear: "In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism comes the risk that society will lose its way."

The state's claim to moral authority on the basis of this grotesque overreaction to Nazism has indeed caused society to lose its way - very badly indeed.

If we are to deal with our social, political, economic and environmental problems in a rational and civilised fashion, we need to understand and work WITH evolved human nature, rather than demonising and suppressing certain aspects of it for the purpose of state control (see BLOG in which I elaborate).

Liberals have brought Donald Trump on Themselves

What Donald Trump Has Built

By Andrew Rosenthal, December 15 2015 (LINK to article)  

The liberal left has screwed white America with it ideology of white racial self-denial, self-contempt and yes, self-hatred - a grotesque overreaction to European imperialism, Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism.

It was the kind of overreaction which the Editorial Board itself warns about in a recent editorial, The Price of Fear": “In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism comes the risk that society will lose its way."

Western society has indeed lost its way, led by the "progressive" liberal left, and Donald Trump is a natural response to that, which the liberal left seeks to demonise.

I'm not a fan of Donald Trump, but I'm even less a fan of the liberal left's ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt, which it urgently needs to recognise for what it is: part of the age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", (white) elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind, (still predominantly white) masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".

See BLOG in which I elaborate further on these ideas.

Why the Obsession with Promoting DIVERSITY?

What Israel Tells Us About Affirmative Action and Race

By

It strikes me as paradoxical that while government is obsessed with increasing ethnic diversity on university campuses and elsewhere (necessarily at the expense of the still dominant white majority), everyone with any sense of their own ethnic identity wants to see their own ethnic group increase in size and influence.

This is madness, and the sooner we recognise it as such and develop an understanding of it the better.

The method to this madness, which is based on an ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt (an extreme and totally inappropriate, but politically highly exploitable, overreaction to European imperialism, Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism), serves the age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", (white) elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind (still predominantly white), masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".

Original sin (disobedience of divine, i.e. priestly/state authority) of medieval church ideology has been replaced by "racial prejudice" (the natural human inclination - like original sin - to identity with members of one's own tribe, race or ethnic group, which was made responsible for the Holocaust and equated with the evils of Nazi racism) of secular, post-racial multicultural ideology, which only submission to priestly/academic/state ideology and authority can save us from eternal damnation for, not as heathens and heretics, as in the past, but as "bigots" and "racists".

Left Loves to Portray Opponents as "Far Right" Haters

The Rise of Hate Search

By Evan Soltas and Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, Dec. 12, 2015  (LINK to article)

I don't feel any hatred towards Muslims, but I feel very angry at those, especially on the liberal left, who have facilitated the mass migration of millions of Muslims, and other poor-world people, into the West for economic and ideological reasons by demonising those who, for very good reasons, have warned against it, as xenophobes and racists.

The NYT has been prominent in promoting this madness, which it seems to view as a moral crusade (misguidedly believing that it is good for society), yet when things go pear-shaped, as they most certainly have in regard to home-grown Islamic terrorism, instead of admitting their mistake and seeking to understand it, they blame the islamophobia, xenophobia or racism of OTHERS instead, especially on the "far right", i.e. as far removed from THEMSELVES, on the left, as possible.

The whole notion of "celebrating DIVERSITY" is madness, Orwellian newspeak, no less, for America's white majority to celebrate its own ethnic displacement (white flight), replacement (soon whites will be an ethnic minority) and ultimate demise.

How to explain this madness?

The NYT's Editorial Board itself provides the answer in a recent editorial, The Price of Fear, in which it says, very wisely, “In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism comes the risk that society will lose its way."

Society has indeed lost its way, in overreaction to Nazism and its insane racial ideology, going to the opposite but equally insane extreme of denying the importance of racial and ethnic identity altogether. See BLOG in which I elaborate.

Liberal America, please wake up!

America's Gun Lobby, Symptom of a Non-Nation

Gunmakers’ War Profiteering on the Home Front

By The Editorial Board, Dec. 11 2015 (LINK to editorial)
"The nation needs restoration of a federal assault weapons ban . . "
If America (or any other state) were a genuine nation it wouldn't have lobbies which put the commercial self-interests of particular industries before the interests of society at large.

And it's not just the gun lobby, but those of ALL major industries, some less, some more harmful, especially when one thinks of the fossil fuel industries, who put their short-sighted commercial self-interests before the very habitability of our planet.

It is no good wagging our fingers at the gun industry, when effectively ALL industries do the same. It's just that the unscrupulousness of other industries is not so blatantly obvious or harmful.

So, if America is not a nation, what is it? it's a mercenary "patron state" deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, to their own personal advantage and that of favoured (especially wealthy and academic, formerly priestly) clients, at the expense and ultimate self-destruction of society at large.

Why has this not been recognised by the academics we look to as authorities in understanding society and the state? Because, like their medieval predecessors and counterparts, they are themselves privileged clients and employees of our "patron state", with a massive personal self-interest (subconscious more than conscious) in rationalising and defending its role, self-image (as our "nation") and ideologies (social, political, economic and racial, formerly religious), on which the state bases its claim to moral and knowledgeable authority.

The gun lobby is just a symptom of a much deeper malady which threatens the very survival of our civilisation and which I elaborate on in this BLOG.

The NYT's Narrative of White Racial Self-Contempt

Empowering the Ugliness

By Paul Krugman, Dec. 11 2015 (LINK to article)
"angry whites who make up a large fraction . .  of the G.O.P. "
It seems to me that white people, both in Europe and in America, have every reason to be "angry", not least at the liberal left, which, in overreaction to Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism, has embraced an ideology white racial self-denial and self-contempt.

Is Paul Krugman, like the majority of those who work and write for the NYT, not white himself? Yet he generalises about "angry, xenophobic and racist whites" as if they were a different and despised race, effectively equating them with Nazis.

This is what virtually everyone on the liberal left does, of course, because it is rooted in the ideology they share, so its extremism goes unnoticed. It is, I think, something the Editorial Board itself warns against in a recent editorial, The Price of Fear:
“In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism comes the risk that society will lose its way."
Western society, led by the liberal left, has already lost its way, in comprehensive overreaction to Nazism and its insane racial ideology, which it has gone to the exact but equally extreme opposite of, denying the importance of race altogether, so that now conservative concerns about immigration and the changing racial composition of America that comes with it (from majority white to majority non-white), are demonised and dismissed as racist and xenophobic on a par with Nazism.

I elaborate further in this BLOG.

ISIS Manipulates and Exploits Human Nature

How ISIS Makes Radicals

By David Brooks, Dec. 8 2015 (LINK to article)
"The purpose of an organization like ISIS is to get people to negate themselves for a larger cause."
It is not about "negating" oneself, but realising oneself in a larger cause, which is deeply rooted in our inherently and intensely tribal nature, which, not coincidentally, I think, we are subliminally taught to trivialise, ridicule or demonise, rather than to take seriously and develop a proper understanding of.

The state conflates and confounds VERY different aspects of the original tribal environment in which human nature evolved, long before the first states and civilisations emerged from it, with the modern "nation state" now deceitfully posing as our tribe or nation (our intra- and inter-tribal environment) itself, while at the same time facilitating society’s SELF-exploitation (as an extra-tribal environment) to the personal advantage of its ruling elites and favoured (especially wealthy and academic - previously, priestly) clients, at the expense and ultimate self-destruction of society at large. Which is why all past civilisations have declined and disappeared. It is why our own civilisation is on course to self-destruct in the decades ahead, and Islam may well replace it.

ISIS is manipulating and exploiting people's tribal nature, just as the Nazis did, and as all states do. We need to understand this, so that we can take charge of the manipulation ourselves, consciously, and direct it in a way that is beneficial both to the individual and to society at large.

Anti-Fascists & Fascists = Goodies & Baddies

Is Donald Trump a Fascist?

By Ross Douthat, Dec. 2 2015 (LINK to article)


Let's face it, calling someone a "fascist" is just a way of dismissing and condemning them as a "baddy", by associating them with all the evils and horrors of Nazism. Those doing the accusing are usually primarily concerned with asserting their own moral superiority as a "goody".

I'm not an expert on fascism, but it seems to me that it can't have been all bad, as it is now portrayed, anymore than communism was. Both movements had 10s of millions of supporters, many of them very passionate in the belief that they were fighting for a good cause.

In the aftermath of WW2, fascism was equated with Nazism and dismissed as evil, while many in academia continued to view communism with sympathy. Clearly, with Stalin, things had gone badly wrong, but the ideas behind communism and socialism were not all bad. Far from it. But no such sympathy is ever shown towards fascism, not least, because there is a strictly enforced taboo against doing so. Anyone who does is immediately accused of being a fascist sympathiser themselves.

I think this was - and continues to be - a huge mistake. We (especially academics from whom others take their lead) massively overreacted to the horrors of Nazism, and as the Editorial Board wrote in a recent editorial, The Price of Fear, "In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism comes the risk that society will lose its way".

This, I believe, is what has happened in respect to fascism, which I elaborate on in this BLOG on The West's Overreaction to Nazism.

P.S. There is a very good biography, it seemed to my lay eye, of the British fascist leader, Oswald Mosley, which is long out of print and whose author, Robert Skidelsky, and publisher seem to have no interest in seeing back in print, presumably because it portrays Mosley in too objective and sympathetic a light. Certainly, he was no British Hitler. According to this biography, the violence which often accompanied his rallies was usually initiated by the Left, which doesn't fit the established narrative of it always being the fascists who were responsible for the violence.

Dominated as it is by the Left, academia  only seems interested in demonising fascism, by equating it with the obvious evils of Nazism, rather than in understanding it in its historical context, as they do with communism and socialism.

America is Suffering from Gunoholism

On Guns, We’re Not Even Trying

By Nicholas Kristof, Dec. 2 2015 (LINK to aryticle)

To a European like myself, it is tempting to dismiss America's gun problem as just weak will, but I have come to realise that America is in fact, metaphorically speaking, a "gunoholic", the reasons for which, as with alcoholism, lie deep in the history and very nature of American society itself.

Europe has its own, equally serious, problems, of course, the causes of which also lie deep in the roots of our civilisation, which are also the roots of American civilisation.

As in the case of individual alcoholism, the first obstacle to overcoming it is to recognise and admit to oneself that one actually has a serious problem that one needs help with. America reminds me of a successful businessman, or woman, who is also an alcoholic, but refuses to face up to it, not least, because it hasn't prevented them from being successful at making a lot of money, notwithstanding the difficulties it makes in their relationships with others and the damage it is doing to their liver, which is leading them to an early death.

If America is to help and cure itself, before it suffers organ failure, it (especially its academics) must seek help from a human-evolutionary perspective on the origins and nature of western civilisation, which will take them to the root cause of the problem, which is about more than just "gunoholism". It will be a difficult, painful and frightening journey, but it's the only way to effect a cure and avoid the premature demise of western civilisation.

See BLOG in which I elaborate on this issue.

White Guilt in the Service of Political Power

What We Fear When We Fear Terrorism

By Ross Douthat, Nov. 30 2015 (LINK to article)
"American xenophobia: We fear attacks from a nebulous or specifically-Islamic “Other” more than we fear violence by angry white men . . . , because Americans still identify with whiteness/maleness/Christianity too closely to fully imagine “white Christian terrorism” as something to be feared . . . This is a mostly left-wing argument . . "
Indeed it is a mostly left-wing argument, behind which lies an ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt, which began as an understandable overreaction to Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism, with their ideology of racial supremacism, before being transformed into an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, just as medieval church ideology once served.

What makes this ideology so powerful and pernicious is that is serves the age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind, masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".

It plays the same power-political role that medieval church ideology once did, whereby "original sin" (disobedience of divine, i.e. priestly/state authority) is replaced by "racial prejudice" (the natural human inclination - like original sin - to identity with members of one's own tribe, race or ethnic group, which was wrongly made responsible for the Holocaust and equated with the evils of Nazi racism), which only submission to priestly/academic/state ideology and authority can save us from eternal damnation for, not as heathens and heretics, as in the past, but as "bigots" and "racists".

As in the past, we are being bullied by an elite of "moral supremacists" who demonise different aspects of human nature to their own, personal, advantage, and which academics don't recognise, because they themselves are some of the biggest bullies.

My Race-Related Story


This was my response to the following invitation to 
Share Your Story. As part of our ​Op-Docs ​series​ Conversation​s​ ​on Race​,​​ we ​want to hear your​​ ​​experiences ​confronting issues of race in your life. We invite you to share your stories, some of which we will feature on a page of readers’ contributions. 

Mine is probably not the kind of race-related story you want to hear, but I’ll tell it anyway.

I was born in the London suburb of Wembley in 1949, when everyone was white. Not that I noticed this at the time. It was just the way things were and one took it for granted. If there had been any non-white kids or teachers at my primary school, I’m sure I would have noticed, but I didn’t. All the faces in all my class photos are white. And it was the same at secondary school. I remember as a child noticing the first non-white people I saw on the street, a black person or someone in Indian dress striking me as most unusual and exotic.

As I grew older I couldn’t help but notice the increasing number of non-white people there were. At first a small minority, but ever increasing, until suddenly they seemed to have become the majority, and indeed they had.

I went back to my old primary school a few years ago and as I looked into the playground I found myself trying to pick out the odd white face amongst all the non-white ones. The combination of the familiar (all the building and roads are still much the same) with the unfamiliar (a different race of people) caused me to come over dizzy. What on Earth had happened?

When I put this question to my MP he dismissed my concerns with distain. To him I was a  “bigot” and “racist” who had failed to move into and “celebrate” the new era of DIVERSITY. 

But what is "Celebrating Diversity" other than Orwellian newspeak for native Britons like myself (and white people everywhere) to celebrate our own ethnic displacement (white flight), replacement (we have now been reduced to an ethnic minority in large swathes of our major cities) and ultimate demise . . ??

Xenophobia is one side of a single coin, on the other side of which is love of one’s own and the familiar. I don’t hate the immigrants (some I have got to know and like very much), most are nice people, but they are not my people.

I don’t blame the immigrants for coming here (who wouldn’t choose Britain over a poor-world country?), but feel betrayed by the British state itself, which I and my fellow countrymen made the fatal mistake of identifying with, as our nation, and trusting.



I didn't hear back, so I guess I was right about it not being the kind of race-related story they wanted to hear about.

The West's Overreaction to Nazism

Western civilisation, especially in America, is to a large extent defined and shackled by its OVERREACTION to Nazism and the Holocaust, something which, without realising it, the NYT itself warns about in an editorial response, The Price of Fear, to the Islamic terror attacks in Paris last November (LINK to article)):
“In the reaction and overreaction to terrorism [evil] comes the risk that society will lose its way.”
By far the most important example of this was the overreaction to Nazism, which has gone virtually unrecognised for decades, not least, because of its very profoundness, magnitude and all-pervasiveness, and because of the personal, professional and power-political self-interests that quickly became bound up with it.

The Nazis took the natural ethnic/racial basis of national identity and nationhood to criminally insane extremes in their efforts to exploit it for their own evil, power-political purposes. In overreaction to this we, i.e. our parents' and grandparents’, went to the opposite extreme of denying the natural ethnic basis of national identity and nationhood altogether, along with the very existence of race itself, which we are now obliged to believe, is just a “social construct”, only of importance to bigots and racists.

Only race is not a "social construct" (except when you try dividing closely related peoples from the same subcontinent into different races, as the Nazis insanely did), but real and important. Not in the way that racial supremacists, like the Nazis or supporters of Jim Crow or Apartheid, believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group, i.e. genuine national, identity.

The Nazis also hijacked the half-baked ideas of social Darwinism, which they abused to rationalise and justify their insane racial ideology, eugenics and euthanasia programmes, and wars of aggression, which also resulted in a massive overreaction on the part of a previous generation of academics, who made a taboo of the whole subject of applying Darwinian logic to the human situation, society and civilisation.

This was a tragedy we are still suffering under, because how else are we understand ourselves, our society, civilisation and situation if not from a human-evolutionary, i.e. Darwinian, perspective? Are we not, like other animals, a product of Darwinian evolution? Such a perspective reveals profound insights into the nature of society and the state, which academics have been unable to view objectively or dispassionately, because of their own dependency on it, and which are crying out for our urgent attention.

There will be understandable fears that to remove the taboos would once again lead to the abuse of Darwin’s ideas, which, of course, can’t be ruled out, but we can guard against it by being proactive in developing a rational and humane Darwinian ethics of our own, which is what we urgently need anyway.

Extricating ourselves from these overreactions and taboos is going to be difficult, because over more than half a century they have become deeply imbedded in the very fabric of academia, which is looked upon as a moral and knowledgeable authority, just as the church once was, whose values and attitudes are hugely influential and difficult even to challenge, let alone change.

Challenges to church authority were often condemned, not because they were considered unjustified, but because of fears of the consequences, not just for the church, but for society at large, which, it was feared could descend into anarchy; however, if those fears had been heeded by everyone the Reformation might never have happened and the Catholic Church would have kept its iron grip on western society, much as Islam has kept its grip on the Muslim world.

States Posing as Nations Can't Save Us

What the Paris Climate Meeting Must Do

By the Editorial Board, Nov. 28 2015 (LINK to editorial)

The "nations" the Editorial Board makes multiple references to and clearly sees as the primary problem solvers are not genuine nations at all, but mercenary "patron states" deceitfully posing as nations, in order to legitimise themselves, their ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, to their own personal advantage and that of favoured (especially wealthy and academic) clients, at the expense of society at large.

These "patron states" are institutionally incapable of doing what only genuine nations would be capable of, but which the Editorial Board vainly demands of them. We were warned about the inherent non-sustainability of consumer capitalism more than 40 years ago, but instead of slowing down in preparation for a radical change of course, world leaders, complying with the demands of their "patron states", put their foot on the gas and consumer capitalism into turbo mode.

If we are to save ourselves from the self-destructive forces which threaten our survival, we must recognise and develop an understanding their source in the perverted Darwinian nature of the state itself - and not be too slow about it. See BLOG in which elaborate.

West's Fatal Addiction to Compulsive Work Ethic

Addicted to Distraction

By Tony Schwartz, Nov. 28 2015 (LINK to article)

This is an excellent and important piece, many of the negative aspects of which I recognise in myself and others.

Why are we driven to distraction? And isn't reading also often just a distraction?

Distinguishing between what is compulsive and what isn't can be difficult, and compulsive isn't always bad. Charles Darwin was a compulsive collector of things, without which he would not have become the renowned scientist he did.

I'm reminded of the hilarious film, The Gods Must Be Mad, in which the compulsive activity of white South Africans is contrasted with the much healthier activity of indigenous Bushmen.

On the other hand, is it not this very compulsiveness which drove Europeans to create western civilisation?

The Germans are particularly compulsive when it comes to work (I know, because I lived in Germany for many years), but it has played no small role in making them so wealthy and "successful". Sometimes I felt like tapping them on the shoulder and pointing out that they had succeeded in rebuilding their country after the war and could now relax a little, but it would have had no effect. Their work ethic is compulsive, distracting them from, what exactly? Themselves? Reality?

Trouble is, we have made a virtue of a compulsive work ethic, seeing the material wealth  it results in as some absolute good.

We tend to admire East Asians, because they can be even more compulsive and driven than "successful" white people are, but perhaps we should question

National Unity Based on Lies and Deceit

Europe the Unready

By Paul Krugman, Nov. 27 2015 (LINK to article)
"I’m just thankful that America has the kind of unity Europe can only dream"
Most Europeans wouldn't want America's unity, thank you very much, because it would have to be based on even more lies and deceit than America's is.

This aside, even the unity of Europe's individual "nation states" is being undermined by mass immigration and DIVERSITY, which are destroying the natural ethnic foundations of genuine nationhood on which Europe's welfare states were originally based.

There is and can be no such thing as "multi-ethnic nationhood", which is an oxymoronic absurdity on a par with Orwell's Ministries of Peace and Truth.

What is "Celebrating Diversity" other than Orwellian newspeak for white people everywhere to celebrate our own ethnic displacement (white flight), replacement (we have already been reduced to an ethnic minority in large swathes of our major cities) and ultimate demise . . ??

In overreaction to Nazism's criminally insane abuse and exploitation of the natural ethnic foundations of national identity, the West - led by America, as usual - went to the opposite but equally insane extreme of denying them altogether, which was quickly incorporated into the ideology of post-racial multiculturalism to serve the age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind, masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".

We urgently need to recognise this madness, while there is still time for us to deal with it in a rational and civilised fashion. Persisting with DIVERSITY and "reverse Nazism", with its inherent racial self-denial and self-contempt, will otherwise result in an even bigger catastrophe than Nazism itself did.

Understanding America’s Obsession with Race

I sent a shorter version of this post to the opinion section of the NYT on Nov. 10 2015 in the vain hope that they might publish it.


America’s obsession with race - as reflected in the media, including the NYT - is a consequence, I suggest, of suppression of its importance. The same phenomenon in regard to sex has a much longer history. 

Fearful of the consequences of not doing so, social/state authority seeks to suppress awareness and discussion to them both, which results in our unhealthy obsession with them.

The situation is very confused, because the suppression is far from complete or uniform, varying from individual to individual. And what we suppress we don’t like talking about. If we could freely talk about them, they wouldn’t be suppressed.

The suppression of sex has been greatly relaxed in recent decades and, not withstanding some negative effects (promiscuity, VD, teenage pregnancies, etc.), most would agree that, on the whole, this is a good thing. Sex is an extremely important matter, and it is better to acknowledge this, so that we can deal with it at a personal level consciously (and conscientiously), rather than suppressing it and submitting (or not) to the commands of external authority.

Suppression of the importance of race, on the other hand, is still very much mainstream, especially amongst those who consider themselves “progressives”, with many even denying the existence of race altogether, dismissing it as a “social construct” only of importance to “bigots” and “racists”, much as women admitting to having sexual desires would once have been demonised as “wanton whores” or the like.

Why are the same “progressives” who are for sexual liberation, so fervently opposed to “racial liberation”, i.e. ending our denial and suppression of its importance?

Obviously, fear of the consequences (e.g. racial supremacism) is one major reason. But another, more powerful reason, I suggest, is the sense of moral superiority and authority which goes with it, and is not just a personal matter, but also has huge social, professional and political implications.

Denial and suppression of the importance of race (not in the way that racial supremacists believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity) has been fashioned, mainly by academics, into an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, with "racism" i.e. the natural human inclination towards racial prejudice, playing the same role that "original sin" once did, thereby serving the age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind, masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".

Woodrow Wilson, Racist or White Nationalist?

The Case Against Woodrow Wilson at Princeton

"[Woodrow Wilson] was an unapologetic racist"
Is it really racist, i.e. evil, to identify with one's own race - even when it is white?

We don't think that Native Americans or Aboriginal Australians are being racist when they seek to defend and preserve their own ethnic and racial identity and interests, although we perhaps would if they were in a position of power and likely to severely disadvantage other races or ethnic groups, as America's dominant white majority clearly is.

I'm not defending Woodrow Wilson's actions, which clearly disadvantaged blacks, but to call it racist, i.e. evil, is going too far, I suggest, showing a lack of understanding of human nature and our natural tendency to identify with our own tribe, race or ethnic group.

Woodrow Wilson is guilty of identifying with and seeking to promote the interests of his own race, for which he can be justly criticised, but shouldn't, I think, be demonised.

Ethnic minorities are not demonised for expressing their own, distinct sense of ethnic identity, so why are members of America's white ethnic minority demonised for doing the same? Is it just because whites are the ones in positions of power which they are likely to abuse, or is there more to it? I think there is more to it: see BLOG in which I elaborate.

Britain's Responsibility for First World War

A Century Ago, Einstein’s Theory of Relativity Changed Everything

By Dennis Overbye, Nov. 24, 2015 (LINK to article)
"Cheered on, to his disgust, by most of his Berlin colleagues, Germany had started a ruinous world war." 
Wrong! Germany got involved in a European war, for which it was no more -  or less - to blame than its main adversaries, Russia and France.

It was Britain, my own country, which decided to turn this European war, which probably would have been over by Christmas 1914, into the First World War, and to stick with it for 4 long bloody years (costing millions of lives), until, with America's help, "victory" was achieved, Germany defeated and humiliated, and the way paved for the rise of Nazism, WW2 and the Holocaust.

I know this isn't the subject of this piece, which commemorates Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, but it is no less important. In human terms it is probably more important, because it is our refusal to recognise our own dire political failings, piling all the blame on the Germans instead, that has got us into the sorry political state we are in, and which we won't succeed in getting out of until we do recognise our own failings.

We need a Copernican or Einsteinian revolution and change of paradigm in the social and political sciences, as we have had a number of in the physical sciences. Otherwise, our civilisation will not survive this century.

I'm Angry at Western Elites

Body Bags in Paris

By Roger Cohen, Nov. 19 2015 *(LINK to article)

I abhor what IS stands for and its barbarism, but I'm not angry at it, I guess because I don't relate to it or its ideology which is totally alien to me, as is the religion of Islam on which it is based. Mohamed, with his 7th century mindset, would probably approve of their militancy and ruthlessness.

I'm angry with the West's political, media and academic elites who are responsible for the madness of allowing millions of Muslims, and other poor-world immigrants, to settle in an already, natively, overpopulated Europe over the past several decades, by demonising all opposition to it as "racist".

Clearly, I am not the only one who is angry; millions of us are. But the moment we express our angry, we are condemned by our own elites as being "far right nationalists", fascists, "bigots" or "racists", made easy by many making the mistake of directing their anger at the immigrants, which is misplaced and wrong, of course. One can hardly blame them for moving from their poor countries of origin to western Europe, with its wealth, welfare, freedoms and opportunities.

I direct my anger where it belongs, which is at Europe's ruling elites, who, as in America, exploit post-racial multicultural society and ideology to their own economic and/or power-political advantage.

However, most of my anger I have sublimated into developing an understanding this madness, which, of course, there is method to: LINK.

It's not just Culture, but also Race

Europe’s Refugee Problem, and Ours

By Ross Douthat, Nov. 18 2015 (LINK to article)
 "[The solution is not] assimilating them all, through some wholly imaginary means, into a Europe that’s roiled by completely-understandable fears about its own near-term security and long-term political and cultural fate."  
Editorial Board, please take note of these wise words.

Also, this European is not only concerned about Europe's "long-term political and cultural fate", but also about something which is clearly a taboo for the NYT, namely the fate of Europe as the ancestral homeland of white people.

I do not accept that it is "racist" to identify with my own white race of ethnic Europeans and to want to preserve it, anymore that it is for Native Americans or Aboriginal Australians to want the same for their indigenous races. I do not want my race reduced to an ethnic minority on their own continent by the forces of globalisation, as Native Americans have been.

I understand where this taboo comes from. It was an understandable overreaction to the Holocaust, which was blamed on "racial prejudice" against Jews, notwithstanding that European Jews are racially indistinguishable form other Europeans, which,  in my view, makes Nazi anti-Semitism an expression of racial SELF-hatred.

Post-racial multicultural ideology, which denies the importance of race, is the exact but equally extreme and insane opposite of Nazi racial ideology, and will have similarly catastrophic consequences if we persist with it, instead of facing up to the reality and importance of race.

America's Catastrophic Military Interventions

Intervention in the Middle East Has Produced Instability, Not Stability

By Prof. Andrew J. Bacevich, Nov. 17, 2015 (LINK to article)

I agree with the author's analysis, which is strongly critical of recent American military interventions in the Middle East, but it is not just recent interventions America has embarked upon which have had catastrophic consequences, the most important of which are not even recognised, because it would be too painful, undermining America's "national" narrative and pride.

I'm thinking, not just, but primarily of WW1, which, until the British government decided to intervene, was a local European war, which more likely than not would have been over by Christmas 1914. It was Britain's (my own country's) intervention that turned it into a world war which dragged on, at Allied insistence, for four long bloody years, until "victory" was finally achieved, Germany defeated and humiliated, and the way paved for the rise of Nazism, WW2 and the Holocaust.

I'm not suggesting that Germany was blameless - far from it; but the Allies, with whom America threw in its lot (for less than purely noble reasons), share far more of the blame for that catastrophic war and the even more catastrophic consequences of "victory", than most historians are prepared to admit - for fear, I suspect, of upsetting "national sensitivities" and their state employer.

We need to be far more self-critical; not in the largely negative way that many so-called "progressives" are, in seeking to demonstrate their own personal moral superiority, but in a positive way, which doesn't point the finger of blame and responsibility at others, but at our collective selves, which requires much better understanding of the nature of the modern state and how it deceitfully poses as our nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse (see BLOG in which I elaborate further).

Black Identity Fine, White Identity Racist!

Race, College and Safe Space

By Charles Blow, Nov. 15 2015 (LINK to article)
  ". . safe spaces, for racial sanctuart, . . not by black design, but as a byproduct of white racism. .  [Black] schools, born of hate, [i.e.] white people’s deep desire to resist racial commingling."  
Here we have it: white people's desire to preserve their own racial identity by avoiding "commingling" is assumed to be an expression of racial hatred.

What is so terrible about white people wanting to preserve their own racial identity? Just because America's "progressive" white elites have embraced an ideology of racial self-denial and self-contempt, doesn't mean that all white Americans must do the same.

Race is NOT the "social construct", these political and academic elites would have us - and themselves - believe (except when you try dividing closely related peoples from the same subcontinent into different races, as the Nazis insanely did), but real and important. Not in the way that racial supremacists believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity, which the state clearly doesn't want its citizens to have, least they challenge its claim to "multi-ethnic nationhood".

We are an inherently and intensely tribal animal, which state and capital seek to define, control and exploit for their own power-political and commercial purposes, just as the state once sought to define and control our sexuality.

We urgently need to become aware what is going on, and why. See BLOG in which I elaborate.

How "Progressives" Demonise they Opponents

What Will Come After Paris

By the Editorial Board, Nov. 15 2015 (LINK to editorial)
"in Europe each [atrocity] intensifies the raucous xenophobia of far-right nationalists ever ready to demonize Muslim citizens . . "  
Believe me - a Native Briton who has experienced what it is like being reduced to an ethnic minority in his ancestral homeland (the suburb of London where I was born) - it is not just "far-right nationalists" who are opposed to any more immigration.

The NYT should stop demonising Native European, like myself, for not wanting to suffer the same fate that European Americans inflicted on Native Americans.

I know, there is some way to go before we are reduced to the tiny percentage of the population that Native Americans now are, but we are well on the way, nevertheless. Only, long before it becomes a reality, there will be civil war. A civil war that the NYT and other "progressives" with your absurd demands for endless immigration and globalisation will be primarily responsible for.

You are always going on about race and the need to have a conversation about it. It is time you started to listen to the concerns of your OWN race (most of you are white, I know), who do not share your ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt, nor the power-political purpose it serves.

Our Arrogant Academic Priesthood

Men’s Lib!

By Richard V. Reeves and Isabel V. Sawhill, Nov. 14, 2015 (LINK to article)

This article made my skin crawl, but I left it too late to submit a comment.

What I dislike so much about this article is how its authors presume to tell others - specifically men - how they should and shouldn't behave. It seems to me to typify a certain academic attitude towards society and the people who comprise it, which is purely self-serving. They assume and assert an authority that they in no way deserve, reminding me of some clerics.

Here are some quotes from the article:

We have not pushed hard enough to put men in traditionally female roles — that is where our priority should lie now. This is not just about gender equality. The stakes are even higher. The jobs that many men used to do are gone or going fast, and families need two engaged parents to share the task of raising children.  
As painful as it may be, men need to adapt to what a modern economy and family life demand. There has been progress in recent years, but it hasn’t been equal to the depth and urgency of the transformation we’re undergoing.  
Will this transformation be good for men? In the long run, we think so. But in any case they don’t really have a choice. Recent changes in women’s status and in the economy aren’t going to be reversed. Men must either adapt or be left behind.  
These disturbing trends have led many observers to call on boys and men to regain their competitive edge over women, so they can once again be successful breadwinners and leaders. But that’s the wrong message. Rather than trying to recreate a patriarchal past, men have to embrace a more feminine future.  
Until men seize opportunities in these “pink collar” sectors, they will continue to lose out in this dynamic area of the labor market.



Rome Didn't Fall in a Day

‘Trust’ in the News Media Has Come to Mean Affirmation

By Brooke Gladstone, Nov. 12 2015 (LINK to article)

It is a well-know truism: united we stand, divided we fall, so can anyone seriously doubt that our civilisation (not just America, but the West in general) is falling?

Rome didn't fall in a day, and it wasn't clear until after the event, which took centuries, that it had actually happened. Our civilisation is falling a lot faster, but still too slowly for most individuals to notice, especially when the system is still working for them and they are preoccupied with daily life.

It is inconceivable to most people that our civilisation could be over before this present century is, but that, I believe, is the course we are on.

And no, I'm not a "doom monger", but a realist, who can see where we are heading. I'm not the only one, of course. Others see it too, but tend to assume that nothing can be done about it. I disagree. I think that we could do a lot about it, if only we understood the nature of our situation, which, unfortunately, we don't, or rather, the academics we look to as authorities on such matters don't. And that's what counts.

If you will forgive my presumptuousness, I believe that I have a much better understanding of our situation, which I elaborate on in this BLOG.

White Americans: A Dying Race

Despair, American Style

By Paul Krugman, Nov. 9 2015 (LINK to article)

The "style" of this despair may be American, but the cause is as ancient as civilisation itself, because inherently associated with it.

Academics give us a rosy-eyed view of civilisation, because, unlike the majority of people, they belong to one of its privileged elites and have a massive personal self-interest in rationalising and defending it.

The truth, which academics are loath to admit - even to themselves - is that the state, as the basic unit of any civilisation is a social, i.e. economic and power-political, construct, with the primary purpose of facilitating society's SELF-exploitation, to the personal advantage of its ruling elites and favoured (especially wealthy and academic) clients, at the expense, and ultimate self-destruction, of society at large.

Even if they admit this about the past, which with hindsight it is difficult to deny, most academics still expect us to believe that with the advent of the American Revolution, Democracy and universal suffrage everything changed, but it didn't.

How are we (especially academics) to see what we have a narrow and short-sighted personal self-interest in not seeing? By viewing ourselves and our situation from a human-evolutionary perspective: LINK to blog in which I elaborate.

Multi-Ethnic Nationhood an Oxymoronic Absurdity

Why Would I [an Asian American] Join a Party That Doesn’t Really Like Me?

By Marie Tessier, Nov. 5, 2015 (LINK to article)

One needs to remind oneself that the American constitution was written by and for European Americans, who, belonging to the same race of closely related European peoples (including European Jews), had the makings of genuine nationhood.

But there is no such thing as "multi-ethnic nationhood", which is an oxymoronic absurdity on a par with Orwell's Ministries of Peace and Truth.

America is not a nation, but a mercenary "patron state" deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, to their own personal advantage and that of favoured (especially wealthy and academic) clients, at the expense of society at large.

This is a difficult, painful and frightening truth to recognise and face up to (especially for said elites and favoured clients, who control all the levers of power and influence), but the truth it is and the sooner it is faced up to the better.

Because of their own dependency on it, academics have not been honest with us, or themselves, about the true nature of the state, which I elaborate on in this BLOG.

Correction: This comment has, in the meantime, been approved and published by the NYT (LINK). The few inconsistencies are a result of MY editing.

Our Fatal Attachment to the State

Suicide of a Dishonest Officer

By Charles Blow, Nov. 4 2015 (LINK to article)

The eulogizing words of Officer Gliniewicz’s widow remind me of most people's attitude towards the state, which deceitfully poses as our nation and servant, while at the same time taking us all for a ride.

It's an attitude greatly promoted by the state itself, of course, and by those the ride gives favour and advantage to.

No one would criticise Mrs. Gliniewicz in her grief. It would be inhumane to attempt to disillusion her, and we can afford not to. But in respect to our illusions about the nature of the state it is different. We cannot afford to go on deluding ourselves, because if we do, the ride it is taking us on will destroy us all - even those who are currently enjoying it.

The state conflates and confounds very different aspects of the original tribal environment in which human nature evolved, long before the first ones emerged from it. Now it deceitfully poses as our tribe or nation (our intra- and inter-tribal environment) itself, while at the same time facilitating society’s SELF-exploitation (as an extra-tribal environment) to the personal advantage of its ruling elites and favoured (esp. wealthy and academic) clients, at the expense of society at large.

Just as it would be for Mrs. Gliniewicz, this is a very difficult and painful truth for every citizen to recognise and face up to, but it is what we urgently need to do, if this ride isn't to end in disaster, a kind of collective suicide.

Such Madness Beggars Belief

Let Refugees Settle Italy’s Empty Spaces

By Beppe Severgnini, Nov. 4 2015 (LINK to article)
"Italy is aging. It needs new people . . . "So why don’t we [welcome refugees and migrants]?"  
Because Italy, like Europe (especially western Europe) as a whole, is already overpopulated, and for sustainability's sakes needs a smaller rather than a larger population.

There is also the fact that non-European immigrants are either of very different culture and history than native Europeans (especially Muslims), and/or of different RACE. Thus, allowing large numbers of them to resettle in Europe is a recipe for ethnic conflict, which we have had enough of in the past, and could rather do without in the future.

Is Opposition to Immigration & DIVERSITY Really Racist?

Is Eastern Europe Really More Racist Than the West?

By Kenan Malik, Nov. 3 2015 (LINK to article)

Western Europe has had mass poor-world immigration and DIVERSITY imposed on it by its ruling elites, who have suppressed all objections (no matter how valid) as "bigoted" or "racist".

In Britain, my own country, this has resulted in native (white) Britons being reduced to an ethnic minority in large swathes of our major cities, with the prospect of us becoming an ethnic minority in the country as a whole before today's teenagers reach retirement age.

And THIS, our ruling elites expect us to embrace and celebrate!

I have come to realise that "celebrating DIVERSITY" is nothing less than Orwellian newspeak for native Britons (and white people everywhere) to celebrate our own ethnic displacement (white flight), replacement, and ultimate demise . . .

I know, it's happening in America too, where whites are not the native, but the founding population, who have largely shaped the country.

It seems to me that the West, following American leadership, has fallen prey to a self-destructive ideology of white racial self-denial, self-contempt and self-hatred, a pathological overreaction, I suggest, to the shame many whites feel (myself included) for western imperialism, slavery, Jim Crow, Apartheid and Nazism, which now serves our elites as an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, just as medieval church ideology once did: LINK to blog in which I elaborate.

NYT's Denial of Reality and Importance of Race

Excluding Blacks From Juries

By Editorial Board, Nov. 2, 2015 (LINK to editorial)

What the Editorial Board will, or cannot admit is that people - ALL people, of ALL races - tend to be racially prejudiced. Some more than others, of course, but prejudiced, nevertheless.

Race is NOT the "social construct" we are taught it is (except when you try dividing closely related peoples from the same subcontinent into different races, as the Nazis insanely did), but  REAL and important. Not in the way that racial supremacists believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity.

Why this determination to deny the reality and importance of race?

It began as an understandable overreaction to the racial supremacism of Jim Crow, Apartheid and, of course, Nazism, before being transformed into an equally extreme ideology of its own, which now serves as an instrument of socio-political intimidation, rewards, punishments, manipulation and control, just as medieval church ideology once did.

It is the STATE itself, which is the real social, i.e. economic and power-political, construct, deceitfully posing as our nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, and thus seek to deny and suppress the natural ethnic foundations of genuine nationhood.

This is a difficult, painful and frightening truth to face up to, but it is the only way we can learn how to deal with this existential problem (see BLOG)

Time to Acknowledge Reality and Importance of Race

How America Tolerates Racism in Jury Selection

By Larry D. Thompson, Oct. 30, 2015 (LINK to article)

It is time we recognised the reality and importance of RACE, instead of claiming the moral high ground for oneself by denying them.

What we are dealing with here is "reverse-Nazism". Because the Nazis, as the embodiment of evil, made a big and nasty issue of race, as well as seeing racial differences where they did not exist (i.e. between different groups of Europeans) there was an overreaction which denied the importance, even the very existence, of race altogether, even when the differences are manifest, as for example between Europeans and Africans.

Race is NOT the "social construct" we are taught it is (except when you try dividing closely related peoples from the same subcontinent into different races, as the Nazis insanely did), but  REAL and important. Not in the way that racial supremacists believe it is, but because central to any deep and meaningful sense of both personal and group identity.

It is the STATE itself, which is the real social, i.e. economic and power-political, construct, deceitfully posing as our nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse, and thus seeks to suppress the natural ethnic foundations of genuine nationhood.

The West is its Own Worst Enemy

Tunisia Is the Exception, Not the Model

By Kamel Daoud,  Oct. 27, 2015 (LINK to article)

In the 7th and 8th centuries, Islam was able to conquer so much territory, because the civilisations which ruled them were weakened by the internal divisions of their self-exploitation.

The same is true of the West today. Although economically and militarily still extremely powerful, we are also self-exploiting and extremely divided amongst ourselves. As the struggle for limited resources and to avoid the impact of climate change, environmental degradation, overpopulation and mass migration intensifies in the decades ahead, our civilisation will tear itself apart.

And it may well be that Islam takes advantage of this and that by the end of this century the green star and crescent flag will be flying over Washington, London, Paris and Berlin.

I'm not being cynical, but realistic. If we were to recognise and develop an understanding of what is wrong with western civilisation, we might yet save it, but time is quickly running out: http://philosopherkin.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/civilisation-evolutionary-cul-de-sac.html

Opposition to Immigration Equated with Hate Mongering

Britain's ‘Brexit’ Folly

". . the hordes of desperate refugees intent on disrupting the British way of life (whatever they imagine that to be) [and] the anti-immigrant hatemongers of the U.K. Independence Party." 

Blinded by your own self-righteous, Roger, but you are the one, it seems to me, doing the "hatemongering".

Many of us - including many UKIP members, I'm sure, although I'm not one of them - are old enough to REMEMBER (we don't have to imagine) what the British way of life was like, before we were reduced to an ethnic minority in large swathes of our major cities my mass immigration, which you think we should have even more of, and "celebrate" as some kind of "enrichment", when in reality is is Orwellian newspeak for native Britons (and white people everywhere) to celebrate our own ethnic displacement (white flight), replacement, and ultimate demise . .

You don't just want to see European Americans (your OWN race, for heaven's sake!) reduced to an ethnic minority in the country they founded and very largely shaped, but also their descendants who chose to remain in Europe reduced to an ethnic minority in their ancestral homeland.

Why? What kind of racial self-hatefulness motivates you. And not just you, of course, all so-called "progressives", it seems. Where does it come from, this racial self-hatred?

I believe that it is, in large part, ideological: http://philosopherkin.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/method-to-madness-of-post-racial.html

Lawyers, Modern Counterparts of Medieval Clergy

The Law School Debt Crisis

By The Editorial Board, Oct. 24 2015 (LINK to editorial)

Lawyers are modern heirs and counterparts of the medieval clergy, who cooperated with members of a warrior class in creating the first European states from a tribal society. They provided the brains and power of the Word, i.e. moral and knowledgeable authority, while the King and his nobles provided the muscle and power of the sword.

Between them they organised society to their own personal advantage, at the expense of the vast majority, whom they subjugated.

It is not just lawyers who are modern heirs and counterparts of the medieval clergy, but social science academia in general, whose members have the same self-interest in rationalising and defending the state and status quo, which continue to massively advantage them, along with other (especially wealthy) clients of the state, at the expense of society at large.

And because these same academics are the ones we all look to as authorities in understanding society and the state, it is easy for them to maintain the status quo, by lying to us - and themselves, no doubt - about the true nature of the state, especially in respect to it representing our nation, which it certainly does not. It is a mercenary "patron state" deceitfully posing as a nation, in order to legitimise itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse.

See BLOG in which I elaborate on these ideas.
