World Doomed by Demographic Decline and Economic Collapse?

World Doomed by Demographic Decline and Economic Collapse?

Bulgaria’s population shrank by 7 percent over the past decade while the number of people over 65 grew, census results showed on Thursday, a trend that will put pressure on its already outdated pension and health systems.

Population decline is a problem across former-communist central and eastern Europe, particularly in Russia, where a demographic crisis could slow growth and hurt its bid to compete with China and India. _Reuters

What is true for central and eastern Europe is also true for southern Europe, and increasingly for Europe as a whole.

Is Southern Europe a preview of coming attractions for the rest of the developed world? Can the modern world survive in the face of its ongoing demographic collapse? The problem is unprecedented in modern times. We do not know if modern technology will present a solution to the “perfect storm of dissolution” of the modern world. Russia is one of the nations most threatened by demographic collapse, and is beginning to require health warnings on all advertisements for abortions.

Russia understands that its very future as a nation is threatened by the inability of its core population to reproduce itself. And slowly but surely, the rest of Europe is beginning to comprehend that it is in the same demographic (and consequently, economic) boat as Russia.

The opportunism of political correctness prevents the Union from tackling the problem of demographic collapse head-on, since the current concept of human rights advocates behaviour oriented in the opposite direction. _presseurop

The US first recognised a modern baby bust and some of its economic consequences back in the 1980s. The “global baby bust” was recognised in the early 2000s by Phillip Longman. Awareness of the concentration of the baby bust within university educated, leftist oriented populations has grown recently, leading to a sense of urgency within leftist political circles to encourage the immigration (both legal and illegal) of larger numbers of fertile, uneducated, government-dependent populations from southern nations.

In Europe, such leftist-instigated attempts to transform the core populations of European nations via immigration is being met by a nativist backlash of sorts. Most native Europeans prefer Europe the way it is, and do not want to see it tranformed into a third-world hellhole. Unfortunately, their leaders — for the most part — are thinking only about political power, and not about the future of Europe.

As advanced nations see their core populations shrink only to be replaced by immigrant populations with less aptitude, on average, to deal with a high technology infrastructure, their economies will go the way of Greece’s. Crime rates will explode, opportunities for advancement and growth will evaporate. This is the destiny that the demographic collapse of a high achieving civilisation leads to.

It will not happen all at once, across the modern world. There will be time for surviving regions to react to conserve their core civilisation. But will political correctness allow this to occur? Sweden is as good as lost, but what about Finland?

The answer will be different for various countries and regions of countries. What will you do?

Sending a message to the elites

Breivik: Sending a message to the elites

Is this the very first time that a gathering of leftists in a Western Nation, post 1960, has been made to pay the ultimate price for their anti democratic multicultural impositions?

If so, then I suspect that the pictures of dead young adults will have a rather powerful deterrent effect on parents who might otherwise encourage their kids to be leftists.

It is hard to imagine a more powerful and socially compelling deterrent than to inject the sort of horrific risk that these pictures implant into the minds of multiculturally inclined parents .

Viewed without emotion, this incident implies a multi-layered level of calculation that I find quite remarkable –  an example not to be emulated to be sure – but remarkable nonetheless.

Thus far, Islamic terrorism has been confined to subway commuters in Spain, Street car commuters in Britain, and primarily, office workers in Manhattan – all nobodies that the elites could, quite frankly, care less about losing.

All that the Islamic terror attacks carried out on average working stiffs accomplished was to generate broad popular support for the war on terror and the vast increase in budgets for the security state. In short, their targeting was terrible as they never terrorized the elites responsible for their grievances.

This attack was entirely different, as it appears designed to inject an element of extreme risk into volunteering to join the ranks of the multicultural political elite.

Further, the soft sort of totalitarianism of the Frankfurt School variety that is spreading throughout the West is carefully designed to avoid pushing its victims over the edge to the kind of violent reaction that occurred in Norway.

Multiculturalism was supposed to be something you could impose on the proles without any cost!

This attack seems to be a rather remarkable demonstration that the velvet glove totalitarianism that we all live under has failed in its primary mission to keep the elites safe from harm. What are they going to do? Have platoons of guards armed with automatic rifles patrolling the campus of Harvard to protect the future elites from the townies?

Wouldn’t that be a bit obvious?

After Norway hasn’t the task of obliterating the White race become a bit more “messy”?

The analogies of others to the killings commanded by Bush and Western butchers are apt, but miss the point. This job had the kind of purposefulness that one would expect from a state planned attack, not an attack prompted by the rage of some lone nutter. And the fact that these same Norwegian multi-culturalists were about to recognize the Palestinian state and that the attack occurred on the anniversary of the bombing of the King David Hotel does nothing to allay those suspicions.

As James Bond would say; “Do you want a clean kill, or do you want me to send a message?”

It hit the aspiring elites were it hurts, in their training camp for future leaders, and it hit the proud, self righteous multi-culti parents where it hurts as well.

It revealed the soft underbelly of the multicultural regime for all to see.

On a personal level, I feel sad for the parents and relatives of these dead young adults. After all most were lured into a wildly risky scheme of Quisling oppression of their fellow countrymen thinking that the enterprise was riskless and profitable.

But putting on the cap of an intelligence analyst, I see a picture of profound significance and meaning, one sure to be a major turning point.

Breivik’s “The great Satan, his cult and the Jews”

Breivik’s “The great Satan, his cult and the Jews”

Kevin MacDonald

The section of Anders Breivik’s 2083: A European Declaration of Independence titled “The great Satan, his cult and the Jews” focuses on Jewish issues. He is unsparing in his criticism of Hitler (the “great Satan”) and the National Socialists, blaming their defeat in WWII  for the rise of multiculturalism and European self-immolation. He makes a strong distinction between conservative Jewish nationalists and liberal Jews, arguing that only the former are opposed to the interests of Europeans. Like several other important European rightists, he expresses strong support for Jewish nationalism, arguing that Hitler should have cooperated in creating a Jewish homeland in the Middle East and deporting the German Jews there. “The deportation of the Jews from Germany wouldn’t be popular but eventually, the Jewish people would regard Hitler as a hero because he returned the Holy land to them.”

When the tides turned for the Nazis and the Russian campaign failed, they decided to massacre the Jews and thus further condemning the Germanic tribes and the conservative/nationalist ideology to hell… They knew perfectly well what the consequences would be for their tribes if they lost, yet they went ahead and completed the job. After WW2, the greatest anti-nationalist and anti-European propaganda campaign the world has ever seen was launched. And people like myself, and other cultural conservative leaders of today, are still suffering under this propaganda campaign because of that one man.

Breivik acknowledges that most German Jews were disloyal in Hitler’s time and estimates that 75% of European and American Jews favor “nation-wrecking” multiculturalism. He concludes that “we must embrace the remaining loyal Jews as brothers rather than repeating the mistake of the NSDAP,” and claims that Jews are not the problem in Europe “with the exception of the UK and France” where 800,000 of Europe’s 1,000,000 Jews live. And he acknowledges that the US with its 6,000,000  ”actually has a considerable Jewish problem.”

No philo-Semite would claim that deportation of Jews from Germany (and implicitly other European countries) is legitimate and would eventually be appreciated by the Jews. Fundamental to Judaism throughout history has been the legitimacy of the Diaspora as an unassimilated group living as a minority. His statements that 75% of Western Jews are “nation-wreckers” and that most Jews during Hitler’s time were disloyal are compatible with the general view that Jews in the West have taken a hostile stance toward the people and cultures they have lived among—the central theme of The Culture of Critique; again, they do not suggest a philo-Semitic point of view.

There are a number of inadequacies with Breivik’s analysis.

  • It is a mistake to consider conservative Jews in the West as allies of European/White nationalism. Thus, the vast majority of “conservative Jews” in America are neocons who have been strong supporters of Jewish  nationalism in Israel while enthusiastically cooperating with the dismantling of the pre-1965 American nation. Neocons—the only significant movement of Jewish “conservatives”— are typically very soft on immigration (see here, p. 26 and passim), including Muslim immigration, favoring a “house-broken” non-militant Islam in the West that tacitly cooperates in the dispossession of the Palestinians.
  • Neocons have been strong supporters of the proposition nation concept in which the nations of the West have no ethnic core while simultaneously being strong supporters of Jewish ethnic nationalism in Israel. Jews who oppose massive non-White immigration into Western countries are vanishingly rare. In America, the only ones who come to mind are Stephen Steinlight and Lawrence Auster, both of whom seem motivated more by saving Jews from immigration of hostile Muslims than a concern about the traditional peoples and culture of the West and neither of whom has any power or influence in the organized Jewish community. Paul Gottfried is likely a real exception but, like the others, he has no influence on the organized Jewish community.
  • In the U.S., Jews have been a critical force in moving the Republican Party away from its traditional conservatism. Sam Francis described “the “catalog of neoconservative efforts not merely to debate, criticize, and refute the ideas of traditional conservatism but to denounce,vilify, and harm the careers of those Old Right figures and institutions they have targeted” (see here, p. 26). As noted repeatedly in TOO (e.g., “Abe Foxman is a hypocrite“), Diaspora Jews in the West commonly have a double standard when it comes to issues related to immigration and multiculturalism in Israel versus the West.
  • Far less than the 25% of European Jews labeled by Breivik as conservative support European nationalism. Not only has Wilders been condemned by the major European and American Jewish organizations (and even by Muslim critic Daniel Pipes whom Breivik admires), only 2%  of Dutch Jews voted for Geert Wilders despite his strong support for Israel and his well-advertised philo-Semitism. “Jews obviously like Wilders’s message even less than a party devoted to Christian morality. Wilders can depend on support from radical Jewish colonists on the West bank or some renegade Israeli generals, but if Wilders campaign against the Muslims succeeds, it will be without the help of Dutch Jews” (see also “Geert Wilders’ Unrequited Love“). The notion that, in Breivik’s words, European rightists should “embrace the loyal Jews as brothers” is a non-starter from the Jewish side. (Nevertheless, as noted here, this rhetoric may well be an effective tactic in getting middle-class non-Jews to vote for nationalist parties because the parties cannot be painted as “racist” or anti-Jewish.)
  • The anti-nationalist tsunami that engulfed the West following WWII did not simply arise out of thin air. Internationalism has been a hallmark of the left throughout the 20th century into the 21st, and there is no question that Jews were the backbone of the left throughout the West before and after WWII and formed a hostile elite in the USSR at least until the end of WWII. The victory over National Socialism was fundamentally a victory of the internationalist left. Jews were critical to that victory and they have been its major beneficiaries in the decades following WWII.
  • Breivik focuses only on the number of Jews rather than on the sources of Jewish power: the organized Jewish community (e.g., in the U.S., the ADL and the SPLC/$PLC as propagandists and enforcers of the multicultural left) and Jewish influence on elite institutions of the West, particularly the media, the academic world, and the political process (AIPAC for starters). Nevertheless, his acknowledgment that Jews are “a problem” in the U.S., Britain, and France is an important concession given that the U.S. is the unquestioned leader of the West and that Britain and France are the leading European cultural powers since Germany has been rendered supine and is therefore powerless to do anything about the current malaise.
  • For example, the academic world as producer and disseminator of knowledge and culture is a critical arena for creating the elite culture of the West. Importantly, academic culture is international rather than national. That is, all of the important academic societies are international in scope, so that a dissident academic culture in, say, Norway, is unthinkable. Once the academic world had become irredeemably liberal in the major cultural centers of the West—most importantly, the U.S. since WWII, it was inevitable that it would cast a huge influence on lesser centers of academic power. Indeed, it is critical for an academic in a small country such as Norway to develop a reputation beyond national borders—or effectively have no reputation at all. Similarly, as discussed in the previous link, in the U.S., academic culture is top-down, with the highest levels rigorously policed to prevent any deviations from multicultural orthodoxy and virtue; hence the outrage over E. O. Wilson’s Sociobiology and the recent uproar over Mearsheimer and Walt on the  Israel Lobby. These academics are difficult to ignore since they are associated with prestigious institutions and they have  outstanding research and publication records apart from their controversial work.

A good example of how this works is Thomas Hylland Eriksen, the “career multiculturalist and intellectual celebrity” who is discussed several times in Breivik’s work. Eriksen, as (correctly) quoted by Breivik, believes that the “most important task ahead is to deconstruct the majority, and we must deconstruct them so thoroughly that they will never be able to call themselves the majority again” (see original here).

Eriksen contributed to an email discussion on the University of Oslo website where the topic was the Rector’s program for combating anti-Semitism and promoting diversity. Here we have the usual stuffed-shirt academic administrator appealing to a community consensus on these issues—the sort of discussion that I am continually forced to endure and which could take place at any university throughout the West. Notice the Rector’s suggestion for mandatory reading of a book on anti-Semitism—a typical example of how the university  uses its power over the curriculum to propagandize its young charges.

Eriksen’s contribution to the discussion is to note that “the Jewish population in Europe (and increasingly in North America)” has been “a key contributor — some would say the heart blood — of intellectual life.” Eriksen has internalized the anti-nationalist, anti-European thrust of the Jewish movements that have dominated intellectual discourse in the West, especially since WWII. In doing so, he is entirely within the mainstream, a respected member of the academic community at his university; I am sure he is also a well-respected member of international associations in his discipline, cultural anthropology—captured for the left by the Boasians by the mid-1920s.

Notice also that Eriksen identifies anti-Semitism as directed against “free inquiry and free thinking in an environment where [academics] are evaluated based on their contributions and not from their cultural or religious identity.” This is ironic to say the least. The pall of political correctness hovering over universities has meant that racial/ethnic and gender identity are now key factors in evaluating academic personnel and there are intense mobbing campaigns against any dissenters from leftist orthodoxy. Recently social psychologist Jonathan Haidt (see here and here) has called attention to “tribal moral communities” in the academic world that function to stifle debate, define research questions, determine standards of publication (much more rigorous for material that challenges multicultural dogmas) and ostracize and punish dissenters.

Moreover, and critically, the fact is that  much of the credibility of Jewish intellectual contributions has been achieved by masking the role of Jewish identification and pursuit of specifically Jewish interests—e.g., the fact that Franz Boas was motivated by his perceptions of anti-Semitism and his loathing for Prussians and Prussian culture. Jewish ethnic identity has been absolutely central to Jewish contributions to the social sciences and humanities, and Eriksen’s field of cultural anthropology is certainly no exception:

As [Gelya] Frank (1997, 731) points out, “The preponderance of Jewish intellectuals in the early years of Boasian anthropology and the Jewish identities of anthropologists in subsequent generations has been downplayed in standard histories of the discipline.” Jewish identifications and the pursuit of perceived Jewish interests, particularly in advocating an ideology of cultural pluralism as a model for Western societies, has been the “invisible subject” of American anthropology—invisible because the ethnic identifications and ethnic interests of its advocates have been masked by a language of science in which such identifications and interests were publicly illegitimate. [see here, p. 23]

Eriksen is a willing and seemingly self-conscious soldier on behalf of the Jewish-led revolution in the culture wars—an exemplar of the disastrous victory of the multicultural left in the elite institutions of the world. If nothing else, Breivik has certainly pointed his finger at some of the most egregious enemies of the legitimate interests of European peoples and their cultures.

Anders Breivik: The great Satan, his cult and the Jews

Whenever someone asks if I am a national socialist I am deeply offended. If there is one historical figure and past Germanic leader I hate it is Adolf Hitler. If I could travel in a time-machine to Berlin in 1933, I would be the first person to go – with the purpose of killing him. Why? No person has ever committed a more horrible crime against his tribe than Hitler. Because of him, the Germanic tribes are dying and MAY be completely wiped out unless we manage to win within 20-70 years. Thanks to his insane campaign and the subsequent genocide of the 6 million Jews, multiculturalism, the anti-European hate ideology was created. Multiculturalism would have never been implemented in Europe if it hadn’t been for NSDAPs reckless and unforgivable actions. Eastern Europe would have remained free, the US and Russia would never have risen up as super-powers. The balance of power would have remained in Europe. And it would be a beautiful Europe with beautiful cultural conservative policies – very similar to the ones you now find in Japan and South Korea. Hitler almost destroyed everything with his reckless and unforgivable actions and he will forever be known as a traitor to the Nordic-Germanic tribes.

So, I am really speechless when I see the cult calling themselves national socialists today. If you truly love our tribe, the Nordic tribes or any other European tribe, you must learn and acknowledge that Hitler is a traitor to the Germanic and all European tribes, NOT a hero. Hitler had the military capabilities necessary to liberate Jerusalem and the nearby provinces from Islamic occupation. He could have easily worked out an agreement with the UK and France to liberate the ancient Jewish Christian lands with the purpose of giving the Jews back their ancestral lands. The UK and France would perhaps even contribute to such a campaign in an effort to support European reconciliation. The deportation of the Jews from Germany wouldn’t be popular but eventually, the Jewish people would regard Hitler as a hero because he returned the Holy land to them.

But what did the great Satan do? He invaded Poland, France Russia and several other countries in his crazed effort for world domination. It was completely reckless and unforgivable as the consequences of such acts aren’t very hard to predict. And when the tides turned for the Nazis and the Russian campaign failed, they decided to massacre the Jews and thus further condemning the Germanic tribes and the conservative/nationalist ideology to hell… They knew perfectly well what the consequences would be for their tribes if they lost, yet they went ahead and completed the job. After WW2, the greatest anti-nationalist and anti-European propaganda campaign the world has ever seen was launched. And people like myself, and other cultural conservative leaders of today, are still suffering under this propaganda campaign because of that one man.

Were the majority of the German and European Jews disloyal? Yes, at least the so called liberal Jews, similar to the liberal Jews today that opposes nationalism/Zionism and supports multiculturalism. Jews that support multiculturalism today are as much of a threat to Israel and Zionism (Israeli nationalism) as they are to us. So let us fight together with Israel, with our Zionist brothers against all anti-Zionists, against all cultural Marxists/multiculturalists. Conservative Jews were loyal to Europe and should have been rewarded. Instead, he just targeted them all… So, are the current Jews in Europe and US disloyal? The multiculturalist (nation-wrecking) Jews ARE while the conservative Jews ARE NOT. Aprox. 75% of European/US Jews support multiculturalism while aprox. 50% of Israeli Jews does the same. This shows very clearly that we must embrace the remaining loyal Jews as brothers rather than repeating the mistake of the NSDAP. Whenever I discuss the Middle East issue with a national socialist he presents the anti-Israeli and pro-Palestine argument. He always seem unaware of the fact that his propaganda is hurting Israeli nationalists (who want to deport the Muslims from Israel) and that he is in fact helping the Israeli cultural Marxists/multiculturalists with his argumentation. In all five discussions they have moderated or fully changed their views after the discussion as they realize what they have done. But I was unable to discuss this issue further after I was banned and kicked out by Stormfront and another national socialist forum.

In any case; educate yourself and learn the difference. Today’s conservatives and want-to-be Nazis are ignorant when they obsess so much over the Jews. There is no Jewish problem in Western Europe (with the exception of the UK and France) as we only have 1 million in Western Europe, whereas 800 000 out of these 1 million live in France and the UK. The US on the other hand, with more than 6 million Jews (600% more than Europe) actually has a considerable Jewish problem. But please learn the difference between a nation-wrecking multiculturalist Jew and a conservative Jew. Don’t make the same mistake that NSDAP did. Never target a Jew because he is a Jew, but rather because he is a category A or B traitor. And don’t forget that the bulk of the category A and B traitors are Christian Europeans. 90% of the category A and B traitors in my own country, Norway, are Nordic, Christian category A and B traitors.

Imposing Costs on Multicultural Elites

Breivik: Imposing Costs on Multicultural Elites

The following is from an article in Al-Jazeera by Robert L. Lambert, the co-director of the European Muslim Research Centre (EMRC) at the University of Exeter (“Nationalists pose a bigger threat than Al-Qaeda“). Judging by his editorials in The Guardian, Lambert is pro-Muslim.

Breivik may have to explain to outsiders why he did not choose to bomb a mosque instead. Surely, for the violent nationalist confluence he represents, that would have been a direct hit on the enemy. Instead, by choosing to attack a government building and a Labour Party summer school, Breivik is drawing attention to what many fringe nationalists see as the political failure of mainstream and left-wing politicians to confront the Muslim threat. So-called appeasers of the “Islamification of Europe” have become as hated as Muslim activists and therefore face the same kind of attacks.

Terrorism is propaganda, not just violence

In addition, Breivik can claim to have followed a long tradition of terrorism target selection that is intended to send a strong message to politicians in an attempt to persuade them to change policy. As leading terrorism scholar Alex Schmid reminds us, terrorism is a form of communication that “cannot be understood only in terms of violence”. Rather, he suggests, “it has to be understood primarily in terms of propaganda” in order to penetrate the terrorist’s strategic purpose.

Breivik appears to understand Schmid’s analysis that terrorism is a combination of violence and propaganda. “By using violence against one victim,” a terrorist “seeks to coerce and persuade others”, Schmid explains. “The immediate victim is merely instrumental, the skin on a drum beaten to achieve a calculated impact on a wider audience.” This is certainly the kind of rationalisation that perpetrators of political violence have adopted in many contexts in pursuit of diverse political causes for decades.

Many extremist nationalists in Norway, the rest of Europe, and North America will be appalled by Breivik’s resort to terrorism and in particular his target selection. However, Breivik is likely to argue that he has sent a powerful and coercive message to all politicians in the West that will help put the campaign against the “Islamification of Europe” at the top of their agenda.

The fact is that Breivik very carefully chose his target. The victory of the left has meant that there is nothing but personal upside for Whites who administer the slow death of their own people. These are the Whites who are the public face of the entire mainstream political spectrum, from far left to neoconservative right. They have wonderful careers as university presidents, politicians, government bureaucrats, heads of major corporations, talking heads in the media.

At the same time, the infrastructure of the multicultural left has imposed huge costs on its opposition. In America, the SPLC and the ADL are the most important organizations policing multicultural orthodoxy, but their power depends on their ability to get compliance. People who publicly oppose multiculturalism have no hope of rising to elite status in any area. A careless comment can result in job loss and social oppobrium.

Breivik’s actions are a wake-up call for these elites–an attempt to impose costs that will ultimately result in changing elite culture in the West. However, unless Breivik is emulated by others, his actions will ultimately not have any effect on elite attitudes. Indeed, they may be seen as warranting extreme forms of political repression that would speed up the process of Stalinization that we are already witnessing throughout the West.

Moreover, Breivik’s strategy assumes that peaceful means cannot work. The fact is that nationalist parties have already made significant headway in Europe, and they definitely have a bright future. As these parties become more powerful, they will be able to impose more costs on the current multicultural elites and more benefits for nationalist patriots. Indeed, the modest successes of the Sweden Democrats has meant that state funds are provided for nationalist media, meaning in turn that nationalist careers are becoming more viable.

Breivik envisions a 70-year struggle, but if so, why resort to extreme violence so early in the game?  His actions may well be a setback for his cause.

The Breivik Action: The First Archeofuturist Victory

The Breivik Action: The First Archeofuturist Victory

Posted: July 27, 2011
Sebastian Ernst Ronin | Hammer & Anvil

In a war there are many moments for compassion and tender action. There are many moments for ruthless action, what is often called ruthless, but may in many circumstances only be clarity, seeing clearly what there is to be done and doing it, directly, quickly, awake, looking at it. – Kurtz

As of this date, July 27, 2011, the military action carried out by Anders Behring Breivik in Norway has altered and shifted drastically the socio-political and cultural struggle of Occidental White Europids (WE™) to retake their ancestral territories, heritage and future history from Globalist-sponsored incursion, colonization and possible genocide. There will be serious setbacks. There will be serious blowback. There will also be considerable and, what was unimaginable opportunity prior to July 22, 2011, to exploit, at a sophisticated and dangerous level, for those White Ethno Nationalists with the political imagination, courage and resolve to do so.

As of this date, the initial burst of media coverage and all related conspiracy theories, second-guessing, conjecture, projection, etc. circulating in cyberspace are superfluous and, all things considered, useless. WE™ are left with an event that is now part of the political and historical fabric and discourse. The event exists only because of the action which birthed the event. Nationalists are left with fielding and dealing with the action itself, a host of both negative and positive consequences, and a flock of political Black Swans that are busy hatching as this is being read.

Knights Templar 2083 by Anders Behring Breivik (12:23)

As was brought into public discourse by Rahm Emanuel when he was the White House Chief of Staff, the political maxim of “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” cuts both ways. For the cut to benefit the struggle of WE™ activists, this will require a certain degree of political sophistication and a clear perception of what can be done…and what cannot be done, and should not be done. The political leadership of global nationalist organizations and parties will be challenged to blunt an onslaught of institutional, media and political demonization, while at the same time probing for and implementing the opportunities that simply did not exist prior to July 22, 2011.

Much of the global nationalist political leadership, especially in NAmerika, will be severely challenged to make the shift to this next plateau. Some will not be challenged. This essay is addressed to the latter, those prepared to take the struggle of White liberation to the next level as forced by the Breivik action while simultaneously putting the goose-stepping and reactionary imposters out to pasture once and for all.

One of the first positive consequences (as opposed to the many negative consequences) that Breivik’s action will generate is that it will flush out the neo-con and Bible-thumping political illiterates and light-weights in the NAmerikan Nationalist community. This is already happening; it is to be welcomed. As pointed out by my Russian colleague, Alexander Mezentsev, “The Oslo ‘massacre’ is a harsh blow against all these malicious Trojan Horses, all these Geert Wilders.” Via their own statements to distance themselves from Breivik, this self-induced purge is already underway.

Much as with the stunted NAmerikan interpretation of European National Socialism, the NAmerikan interpretation of European New Right is a philosophical abortion. The Breivik action opens the door for all Occidental Whites to fully explore and begin to implement the political map as has been laid out by Guillaume Faye with his identification of Archeofuturism.[1]

In simplest terms, Faye believes that the future of White Europids requires a transcendence of the division between those who wish for a restoration of the traditions of the past, and those who are calling for new political, social and technological forms, creating a synthesis which will amplify the strengths and restrain the excesses of both. (Observant readers will readily recognize the notion of philosophical and political Vesica Piscis, as identified by the Renaissance Vanguard International.)

Inherent in the metapolitical and general blueprint of Archeofuturism, is the specific need to uncover/re-discover/re-identify our own archaic spiritual and psychic motivators to fight, with both mind and fist (if and when called upon to do so). As Faye states, this is of extreme importance because all of the foot soldiers of our Globalist enemies, i.e. Muslim, African, Mexican, already fight with such clarity and desperation; by never having shed these types of motivations, the Globalist foot soldiers already inhabit the Archeofuturist world! Unless Whites discover and adopt same motivators, we are at their mercy.

Within the European context, Faye states:

The problem for us Europeans is not having these values imposed upon us, on account of our cowardliness, by Islam – as is already happening – but rather of being capable of asserting these values ourselves by drawing them from our historical memory.[2]

Anders Breivik: ‘Labour Party Government failed the country’ (00:32)

For this reason is Breivik’s action the first Archeofuturist military engagement and victory. If one agrees or not with his identification of “Templar Knight” is beside the point. There are other pre-liberal/modernist, pagan-heathen identities to choose from. What matters is that Breivik has laid claim to an Archeofuturist identity and has attached a courageous political decision and action onto this identity. WE™ have been jolted and pulled into this Archeofuturist world and its political struggle. There is now no turning back. Breivik’s action has, kicking and screaming, pushed us across our own political Rubicon. Intended or not, this is the genius of Breivik’s action. The action is either isolated from motive or it is related to motive, this much is self-evident. But even minus a pure and honourable motive, the action itself stands. If the action was engineered by a lone wolf Breivik or by conspiratorial black operatives is secondary to the fact that it is now in the world; that is the opportunity.

WE™ find ourselves now entered onto Sun Tzu’s “Death Ground”; the cultural and political battle has been brought to us and WE™ have now only two options: succeed or perish. Rest assured, our enemies know full well what the Breivik action implies, and a nationalist political elite is about to discover the knowing of it. WE™ have been injected into a Gramscian universe of uncharted territory, remembering that the map is never the territory, not even the Archeofuturist map supplied by Faye. Rightly or wrongly, regardless of intent or non-intent, patsy or not, Mason-Zionist or not, regardless of possible hidden agendas and shady political affiliations, the Breivik action has now framed the discourse and political trajectory of the White Ethno Nationalist movement for years to come. Until proven otherwise via independent research and/or the proceedings/discoveries via his trial, the only evidence at hand are Breivik’s own manifesto, “2083 – A European Declaration of Independence” (PDF) and the accompanying video “Knights Templar 2083”, both released just prior to the action.[3]

If our enemies have placed “the Breivik action” into the world, then they have made a mistake and the haunting diktat of Talleyrand rings true: “It was worse than a crime; it was a mistake.”

All nationalist armchair and keyboard revolutionaries, myself included, have been put on notice and in proper place. The performance bar has been raised. The gauntlet that has been dropped is simple: either rise to the challenge upon this Archeofuturist Death Ground, or cut bait towards reformist and feel-good twaddle that will not so much as warrant a footnote upon the writing of White Europid history.

WE™ are confronted with a swirling kaleidoscope of opinions, guesses and analyses. It is the fog of war. However, at the center of this swirling kaleidoscope, regardless of who has created it, is the bloody and archaic event itself and the published manuscript of motives and rationale for. The center of any storm is calm, still; it does not revolve in a blur of confusion.

The route from perceived catastrophic setback to actual opportunity is merely one of perception. Direct positives that the Breivik action delivers within this new political universe are as follows:

  1. the mass positioning of the Islamization/colonization of “Eurabia” in the public psyche; if these notions are immediately understood and/or comprehended or not is beside the point; what matters is that, relative to the public psyche, they have now been positioned (NAmerikan legal and illegal immigration is analogous)
  2. the mass positioning of multiculturalism and so-called “Cultural Marxism” as state-sponsored adjuncts to the latter colonization of the Occident by non-Occidentals in the public psyche; if these notions are immediately understood and/or comprehended or not is beside the point; what matters is that, relative to the public psyche, they have now been positioned (NAmerikan situation is analogous)
  3. via the conscious target selection of “innocent” young Whites (and also the future generation of the Norwegian ruling Labour Party) by the Breivik action, the mass positioning of “betrayal from the top” in the public psyche, i.e. non-Occidental immigration and multiculturalism are tools of the Globalist economic and political elites; if this notion is immediately understood and/or comprehended or not (it will not be) is beside the point; what matters is that, relative to the public psyche, it has now been positioned (NAmerikan situation is analogous)

Anders Breivik: One cannot allow one’s country to be colonised by Muslims (01:09)

If the Breivik action was carried out solely by Breivik, then the action speaks for itself. If the Breivik action was some sort of false flag or black op orchestrated by forces far beyond Breivik, then the action and its benefits are maintained minus the mention of who may have engineered it. Either way, the psychological memes of the action remain the same. Either way, WE™ have been handed on a silver platter a tactical Knight Fork of opportunity to be scrutinized, analyzed and acted upon.

Over the short term, possibly for as long as several years, there will most likely be serious blowback and sacrifice for nationalist organizations and political parties. At the most these setbacks can be successfully countered, and at the least, neutralized, by a mature marshalling and coordination of the latter benefits on the new political and propaganda terrain. That there will be a media onslaught against the White Ethno Nationalist movement goes without saying. Some dominant individuals and organizations will no doubt fall; others will survive. If the movement can regroup within two to three years, it will be doing well. It may be prudent to remember that tactical and necessary concessions, sacrifices and retreat do not equal surrender.

It is anticipated that the demonization of Whites and the playing on White guilt will morph into nauseous overtures, spearheaded by all forms of corporate print and electronic media. As such campaigns proceed innocent Whites on the receiving ends may well question their cognitive dissonance to the best of their abilities and relative to the “Breivikian” memes that have been lodged in their psyches. What is this Islamization? What is this Eurabia? What is this colonization of our homelands? What is this hidden and ulterior motive/agenda of multiculturalism? Who benefits from having these strangers in our homes? Are we really at war? Nationalist political organizations and parties need be prepared to field these questions.

Lastly, and in passing, the descent towards a Post-Peak Oil world must be addressed for two reasons.

Firstly, save for a seven-word, toss-away comment on p. 1,222 of the Breivik Manifesto, there is no mention made of Peak Oil, yet this descent will run in parallel to an awakening global Ethno Nationalism and related consequences of political devolution and nation-state fracture/secession. Energy devolution, ecological tipping point, and Ethno Nationalism will be the three major socio-political drivers of the 21st Century. The economic maxim of “competition for scarce resources” is part of the racial strife that lays latent in the Occident.

Secondly, it is imperative that Peak Oilers, 95 percent of whom are White, question and preferably distance themselves from their predominantly liberal underpinnings. This is no more evident than with the false path they are being lead down by Michael C. Ruppert. Courageous street cop and brilliant investigative journalist do not necessarily translate into political wisdom for this age. Agree with it or not, like it or not, the world as identified and outlined by the Breivik action is real; it cannot be downplayed; it cannot be swept under the carpet in exchange for roasting weenies over campfires in the false nirvana of Post-Peak Oil humanitarianism and redundant equalities. This world must be accepted. A CollapseNet cash flow of $50,000 per month, no matter how many weenies it can buy, can not and will not deflect the racial/ethnic conflict (to what exact degree will be a challenge of political statesmanship) that is part-and-parcel of a Post-Peak Oil world.

In conclusion, the Breivik action has punched a hole into the public’s wall of limited perception, i.e. denial/fractured political cognitive dissonance. The White Beast may not yet be fully awake, but at the very least it finally stirs in its sleep that has been pushed from deep and unconscious to restless. There is now a breach in the wall, and even though it is as limited as it is, for White activists it signals a shift from cultural RaHoWa to the opening skirmish of actual RaHoWa. WE™ now embark on claiming our own archaic sensibilities, an asset that up to July 22, 2011 had been the sole possession of our enemies. The accompanying political cultural landscape has experienced a significant tremor, a rip in its fabric, much to the advantage of these opening skirmishes and latent propaganda.

The Breivik action is now part of history. Oppressed, gagged and brutalized Whites worldwide, the victims and their families of the Breivik action, and the races that would challenge Whites for eventual survival during this century of pending technocratic cull and ecological purge have been sent a clear and brutal signal. It is that industrial, Globalist civilization is as fragile and as passing as the paper it is written upon. That all peoples have been carried to this new place by possibly the limited self-goal of a delusional, religious conservative is neither here nor there. History will gaze and make its judgment while his action and its consequences remain unhinged and isolated from such judgment.

The Death Ground of the opening phase of Archeofuturism has been breached; there is no turning back. The boats and the cooking utensils have been smashed. WE™ now spiritually, culturally and politically begin to feed and prosper upon the enemy or eventually perish. These are the only two options. Our genocide is simply not acceptable. RaHoWa has arrived with all the political wisdom and responsibility that come with it. The horrible incentive to see clearly becomes tantamount.

Such is now our world as of July 22, 2011. However one may understand a God(s) of their choosing, may God’s speed be with us all. WE™ shall need it.

In Breivik’s 2083: The European Declaration of Independence (PDF) compilation, it is written:

“More than 90% of the EU and national parliamentarians and more than 95% of journalists are supporters of European multiculturalism and therefore supporters of the ongoing Islamic colonisation of Europe; yet, they DO NOT have the permission of the European peoples to implement these doctrines.”

Two days ago, I submitted some suggestions to Mr. Breivik’s Attorney, Mr. Geir Lippestad. Today I received an invitation (I do not know if the invitation is related to my correspondence to Mr. Lippestad; it could be totally a coincidence from someone who noticed the postings on my facebook wall) to the Facebook Group: In Support of Geir Lippestad, Attorney for Anders Behring Breivik (Til støtte for Geir Lippestad) whose goals are as follows:

Anders Breivik: ‘Labour Party Government failed the country’ (00:32)

First and foremost, I would say that this is a group that certainly does not support the actions, visions or something of the perpetrator stands for.

We are however strongly opposed to rumors that Geir Lippestad has received hate speech. This is no time for hate, it’s time to stand together. Geir Lippestad has just taken on the job as a lawyer, and we demand that he not be identified with the perpetrator or what Breivik stands for.

This group is created to show support for the defense attorney Geir Lippestad, which has undertaken the difficult job it is to have to defend the man who carried out these actions. We give our support to him is because he does an important job to ensure that the law is followed and that there is a fair trial.

So, I joined and sent a bunch of invitations to my Facebook friends to join:

In Support of Geir Lippestad, Attorney for Anders Behring Breivik

Excerpt of Statement by Breivik, via Judge Kim Heger: “The operation was not about killing as many as possible, but to provide a significant signal that simply could not be misunderstood [because] as long as the Labour party maintains their ideological line of politics, whereby they deconstruct Norwegian culture and ‘mass-import’ Muslims, they must be held accountable for treason. One cannot allow one’s country to be colonised by Muslims.”

Anders Breivik: One cannot allow one’s country to be colonised by Muslims (01:09)

I also sent an invitation to my Renaissance Vanguard International Facebook Friend from Pakistan: Arif Hasan Akhundzada, who is one of the Jus Sanguinis Boer Volkstaat Right of Return Petition Expert Witnesses:

Arif Hasan Akhundzada is 43, and the Pakistan executive member of the Renaissance Vanguard International Political Party (RVI). He is unmarried and lives off the income of his inherited tribal lands. His mother was English. He has college level education and is also a trained pilot.

His main activities center around all kinds of reading and writing, and since his (late father’s) family has a high standing in our local Pashtun tribal society in both Pakistan and Afghanistan, he also takes part in local social and political activity.

His ancestor was originally a Turkoman from Central Asia in what is now the Turkmenistan and Southern Russian region, but their clan has been living in ethnic Afghan lands, within present day Pakistan, for the better part of 300 years.

His expertise on behalf of the Jus Sanguinis Petition includes:

    • The Pashtun, A Post-Peak Oil Tribal Beacon for the Occident, by Arif Hasan Akhundzada, RVI Pakistan Representative ©
    • Peak Oil, Ethno-Nationalism, Secession
    • Ethnicity a basis for rather than threat to democracy and freedom, Tartu conference concludes
  • Ethno Nationalist Secession-by-Default: Post-Peak Oil Devolution of the Developing Industrial Nation-State

Within a few minutes he let me know that he had joined the group; and posted a comment:

Arif Hasan Akhundzada posted to Til støtte for Geir Lippestad:
The purity of traditional European culture (not the “postmodern” variety) – which has given so much to the world and its future….should be preserved, and defended from the liberal folly that has now afflicted Europeans…..I say this as a half-English resident of a very nasty Third World country……

Knights Templar: Honesty and Hypocrisy

Posted on July 25, 2011
by William Rome | Occidental Dissent

Todays Templar?

Darzee was a feather-brained little fellow who could never hold more than one idea at a time in his head; and just because he knew that Nagaina’s children were born in eggs like his own, he didn’t think at first that it was fair to kill them. But his wife was a sensible bird, and she knew that cobra’s eggs meant young cobras later on; so she flew off from the nest, and left Darzee to keep the babies warm, and continue his song about the death of Nag. Darzee was very like a man in some ways. -”Rikky Tikky Tavi” exerpt.

Alot of people are going to be infuriated by this post so I might as well get started early: I will not shed a single tear over the dead brats of Norway’s traitorous elite.

For over half a century the Evil Elites of the West have systematically brought tyranny to the people they rule over through non-white immigration, forced integration, forced busing, and Multicultural propaganda which has led to an endless malestrom of rape, robbery, assault, and murder. To top it off these evil elites also institute Hate-Crimes legislation to silence those who speak out against their tyranny.

Are the Evil Elite and their children effected by any of this? Of course not! They’re protected and hidden away in gated commnities and private schools. In other words for half a century the Evil Elites of the West have forced policies that they insulate themselves from.

The hands of this Evil Elite are dripping with the blood of their people from the assaults, rapes, and murders they have unleashed. The lives of countless families have been shattered because of the policies shoved down their people’s throats. Why should I shed one fucking tear when they finally get a taste of what they’ve unleashed? Sorry my tears are reserved for the people whose lives have been shattered by the policies of the Evil Elite not the Evil Elite themselves.

To paraphrase Marie Antionette, “Let them eat lead.”

As Hunter has pointed out Anders Behring Breivik didn’t simply pull off some Columbine-style massacre of teenagers for the hell of it (as much as many are making it out to be) but an attack on the next generation of traitors for Norway’s government. They weren’t attending a Salute Your Shorts Camp Anawanna but the training camp of 16-22 year olds for Norway’s ruling Multicult loving Leftist party. In other worlds he hit them where it hurt most: the training ground for their hand picked successors.

The Praetorian Gaurd killed Caligula’s daughter.

That is why I included the quote from Rikky-Tikky Tavi in the beginning. Anders Behring Breivik (as all intelligent political thinkers once did) knew that eliminating the heirs was just as important as eliminating those currently in power. But many will say, “He killed kids! He’s an insane lunatic!” My question is since when does killing kids for political reasons right away mean lunacy? Roman emperors and Norman dukes killed their rival’s families. The Bolsheviks shot the Romanov children along with the Tsar and Tsarina. We bombed Gadaffi’s children in Libya. Does this mean every Roman emperor, Norman duke, the Bolshevik shooter, and the American pilots that killed children in the name of politics were batshit crazy? And lets not forget the murder of millions of children every year in the form of abortion which Leftist cheer as a “Human Right”. Is every white woman that gets an abortion a batshit crazy lunatic?

Maybe to gain Leftist sympathy he should call himself an extremely late-term abortionist.

I’m not jumping up and down cheering what he did but lets put the womanish sentimentalism aside. Is killing children for political reasons cold, cruel, and calculating? Absolutely. Does it mean mental illness? Absolutely not.

Even worse those knee-jerkingly calling Anders Behring Breivik a lunatic strenghten the old Marxist canard that all violence done against the Left is a sign of mental illness while Leftist violence such as the crimes of Che and Mandela are acceptable as misguided acts of political dedication. Why is it that violent Leftist are never mentally unstable?

While I won’t be toasting his actions tonight I also won’t be shedding tears for the loss of the future traitors who would grow up to continue their parents destruction of Norway. The Evil Elite brought this backlash on themselves with the policies they forced. That’s my honestly.

Now for the hypocrisy.

The reaction by the non-mainstream Right to the events in Norway has been jaw dropping. First off is the spectacle of those who worship Hitler denouncing Anders Behring Breivik for killing fellow whites. They scream, “How could a Nationalist kill his own people?!” This from the people who worship a man who killed millions of white people (Eastern Europeans) because they were Slavs? Such hypocrisy is stunning.

The next hypocrisy is from those who are doing everything imaginable to distance themselves from Anders Behring Breivik, saying he’s not one of us. Such self-survival is understandable and justified (especially those in Europe). But this distancing is coming from the same people who routinely denouncing mainstream conservatives for being too afraid to embrace and identify with the non-mainstream Right. They are doing the exact same thing they lambast mainstream conservatives for: being afraid to embrace their extremist like the Left does.

The third hypocrisy is from those who are saying Anders Behring Breivik should have attacked some Muslim rapists and he would have gained more sympathy. This from the same people who’ve said for years that we shouldn’t attack those the Evil Elite have invited in but the Evil Elite themselves. Anders Behring Breivik did just that and he’s being denounced by some for not doing the’ve always said not to do.

Had no teeth till the peasants violently revolted

My fourth hypocrisy is one of cowardice. On this site and others there is continuous talk about the backlash and collapse of BRA here in America and Eurabia in Europe. How did you think this would play out? Debates on German philosophers? Essays on political theory? As much we may like to see ourselves as contemporary Voltaire’s, Thomas Paine’s, and Martin Luther’s our radical writings (like theirs) will have no teeth to them until they taken up with physical force. Am I calling for this physical force? Hell no! I know when it finally comes it will be violent and unpredictable. I’m not looking foreward to the day it comes but I know it’s coming and I know it won’t take the form of democratic elections or academic debates. Anders Behring Breivik is just the start of the form the backlash and collapse is going to take. Muslims in Eurabia and blacks in BRA are assaulting, raping, and murdering us while they riot, bomb, and burn our cities to the ground: did you not expect a backlash just as violent?

No system falls except in blood. The Roman Republic, Vatican control over Western Europe, British control over the American Colonies and Ireland, and the French and Russian monarchies all collapsed in blood. BRA and Eurabia will be no different. So unless the Armchair Revolutionaries denouncing Anders Behring Breivik while publically wanting the same thing (Muslims out of Europe) are ready to accept this they need to stop reading Harold Covington, listening to IRA rebel songs, admiring the American Revolutionary Fathers, and saying we’ll never vote ourselves out of this mess because they’re no different from the hated mainstream conservatives who say this country needs a revolution while also saying we shouldn’t be too extreme.

Anders Behring Breivik walked the walk you only talk.

How civilizations die

How civilizations die

Think of the diagnostic process. You use this to fix your stove, figure out why your computer has weird pop-ups advertising Viagra, or understand what’s making your six-year-old upchuck so expressively at 4 am.

The process is straightforward: First, you recognize a problem; then, a series of symptoms; then, whatever states keep renewing those symptoms — here you eliminate a lot of false positives; finally, the causes of those symptoms come to light.

When they conduct a postmortem on the West, “they” will probably not be human. With the West will fall the brightest chance for humanity to rise above its own half-chimpanzee nature. Asia and Africa face problems that although farther away, dwarf our own. Those who examine the corpse of this civilization will probably come from far away, and be on some kind of civics field trip. “See, Xllggvxzxzort, this is how a mid-stage species passes on into the hereafter…”

What killed this civilization is not a thing, but an idea. This idea spread like wildfire through the citizens. It was an undoing of the contract which forms society, which is people trading some freedoms for the advantages of collective action.

This idea was the notion that the individual matters more than the process. Like materialism, it’s an insistence that what we have here and now is something more important than the eternal, even if we can feel the material stuff and see how solid, present and undeniable it is.

What built the West was a focus on the eternal. We investigated the natural laws like gravity that define how our world works; we built great empires on the principles of politics, philosophy and religion; we focused on the consequences of our actions, not the methods we had to use.

As a result, we built a great empire. This empire in turn made more people citizens than should have been citizens, and made prosperous even the stupidest among its ranks, and so soon drowned in idiots. They immediately insisted on equality, which is the notion that the vote of a genius is equal to the vote of a retarded person, criminal, idiot or pathological obsessive.

It’s no mystery that the West began its downward spiral as a result! Picking up momentum in 1215 with the Magna Carta, then going hog-wild with the storming of the Bastille in 1789, and finally reaching a passive-aggressive “peaceful” form in 1968, this idea has kept rolling and grinding us into the earth.

As a recent writer puts it adroitly:

Freedom wasn’t perfect here, but unlike the preponderance of world history, freedom abounded. America has seemingly forgotten what made her a beacon to the world. We downplay this bold experiment in favor of overblown tales of oppression. In the revision, America wasn’t unique because of its unprecedented liberty and resultant prosperity. According to cultural elitists, America was singularly vile for exploiting workers, enslaving blacks, robbing Indians and oppressing women.

As previously highlighted on Forbes, this reflects blatant cultural Marxism. Historically, few Americans found class antagonisms convincing. The Left substituted race, sex and other factors for the class conflict of orthodox Marxism. Under the guise of diversity, the Left seeks ideological uniformity uniting assorted grievance bearers in collective resentment against America’s cultural heritage.

Today our children are indoctrinated into perverse revisionism. Schools harp more on the KKK, slavery and Jim Crow than extol the heroism and unrivaled restraint of George Washington, the inventive genius of Thomas Edison or the innovative business acumen of Henry Ford. Our young know plenty about America’s perceived national sins, but little of her astounding achievements.

In an Orwellian redefinition of virtue, those who love America are smeared as intolerant bigots while those degrading the culture which sustains them pass as caring and compassionate. Most Americans intuitively perceive the hypocrisy of politically correct dogma, but few dare articulate their dismay, cowed into obsequiousness by the ubiquitous thought police. – Forbes

While he talks about free markets and freedom, both of which are somewhat fallacious as notions, his point is well-taken:

When we let nature manage us, and focused on creating, we did well.

When we turned into a moralistic society more concerned with wealth redistribution than creativity, all went to hell.

Nature is not PC. Nature is inherently Social Darwinist; in fact, nature is outright Darwinist. This means that those who adapt, prosper and reproduce offspring who can do the same are those who create the basis of the next generations. Nature recognizes that evolution branches, and some social groups and social classes in every society are more privileged, with higher abilities than others.

Our goal-oriented society, with its focus on the eternal, was entirely compatible with nature. It rewarded the good and smote the bad, and ignored those who did not distinguish themselves. It had a goal. It had a social hierarchy, rules and a value system. We have deposed all of these things in the name of “equality.”

The revolutionaries did not tell us that the price of equality was the destruction of our civilization. However, when you think about it, it makes sense. Equality should be granted in reward for performance, not before performance. Further, we need to reward those who do better at something than the rest. Everyone has a place (except sociopaths, incompetents, perverts, etc.) but in order to make a society that can do that, we need to push the best above the rest.

We have turned our back on the values that made us succeed, and traded them for values that make us “feel good” (if we’re not winning at life on any level):

Countless technological innovations we take for granted today are also result of the US space program and Shuttle research. The Space Shuttle program alone has generated more than 120 technology spinoffs, including miniaturized heart pumps that save lives, thermal protection system materials, bioreactors (help chemists design new drugs and antibodies), compact laboratory instruments, sensitive hand-held infrared cameras, light-emitting diodes for treatment of cancerous tumors, lighter and stronger prosthetic limbs, an extrication tool to remove accident victims from wrecked vehicles, and many more. (NASA has an entire website dedicated to spinoff technology.)

Now the Shuttle is gone and there is nothing to take its place. The US no longer has the ability to put astronauts into orbit. NASA will have to rely on the Russians to hitch a ride to the International Space Station – on the old-fashioned Soyuz spacecraft, at some $50 million per ride.

It wasn’t supposed to end like this. A few years ago George W. Bush announced the return to manned space exploration with the Constellation program. Missions to the Moon (by 2020) were to be followed by a manned flight to Mars and beyond. Then came Barack Obama who, believing in social programs and wealth redistribution rather than science and exploration, promptly cancelled Constellation, the country’s only chance at continuing with human space flight.

In any case the space program no longer seems appropriate for today’s America. Space exploration was a symbol and inspiration for Americans who believed in excellence, courage, self-reliance, achievement, science (hard science, not the politically correct pseudo-science of today). That country no longer exists; its spirit has been broken. The “virtues” America, and the West, worship today – equality, diversity, feminism – are a fast-track to a third world status, not to the stars. – Money Honey Blog

And what caused us to shift this direction?

The oldest problem in humanity: people gaming the system.

Instead of choosing what is best, choose what is best — for you.

The two do not always intersect, and if you place yourself before all else (a condition called individualism), you will sacrifice the interests of the whole.

A death of a thousand cuts results. Society is dismantled, detail by detail, until we have “equality” — a keyword for individuals doing whatever they want and demanding the rest of us pay for it.

Another phrase for this is motivated reasoning, or people letting their self-interest skew their sense of logic:

University of Southern California academics Dan Simon and Nicholas Scurich couldn’t have known months ago that they would be unveiling the results of their “exploratory” study, “Lay Judgments of Judicial Decision-Making,” smack dab in the middle of a furious debate over the nation’s debt and deficit. But it turns out that their timing is impeccable. For here, in one place at one time, we are (again) reminded why government so often seems so broken to so many of us.

It’s human nature, folks. Our founding documents and governing institutions may aspire to Locke, but hundreds of years later we’re still chock full of Hobbes. We respect officials when they do what we want them to do. We disrespect them when they don’t. We are far less objective and justifiable than we think are with the rationales we endorse and employ. And everyone is looking out for themselves. No wonder there is so much cynicism toward law and politics. It’s not just coming from the top down, as angry citizens like to claim — it’s coming from the bottom up, too. – The Atlantic

Our democratic illusion is that if something is going wrong, the big dogs — government, politicians, “the rich,” corporations, religion — are to blame.

The reality is that if something at the top level is dysfunctional, it only is so because so many clueless voters allow themselves to be easily misled. By what? By self-interest while ignoring conventional knowledge and impact on the whole.

What is a criminal or sociopath? An extreme example of someone putting self before society, common sense, science and future consequences.

What is a narcissist? Someone oblivious to everyone around them and the consequences of their actions, because they are focused on themselves.

Together, what do these form? A more extreme version of the idea that undid our society.

Josh Foster (of the University of South Alabama) and I are releasing a study today showing that narcissistic traits are increasing even faster than we previously thought. From 2002 to 2007, college students’ scores on the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI) rose twice as fast as we’d found in an earlier study that covered changes between 1982 and 2006. (The NPI measures narcissistic traits among the normal population, not necessarily rising to the level of a clinical diagnosis).

Then there’s the shocking data recently released by researchers from the National Institutes of Health. They surveyed a nationally representative sample of 35,000 Americans about symptoms that can add up to Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), the more severe, clinical form of the trait. They asked if someone had ever experienced these symptoms in their lifetime, so you’d expect that older people would have a much higher rate than younger people since they’ve lived more years. However, the data go the opposite direction: Only 3% of people over 65 had ever experienced NPD, compared to nearly 10% of people in their twenties. It’s possible that older people forgot some symptoms from earlier in their lives, but that would have to be a large amount of forgetting to account for this big a discrepancy. With almost 1 out of 10 people in their twenties already experiencing NPD, it’s sobering to realize how high that number might go in the coming decades.

So the whole society has become more narcissistic – not just the people, but our entire value system. – Psychology Today

Equality makes individuals narcissistic.

They no longer have anything to prove; they have no reason to better themselves. They find external targets for their rage, like more successful people, instead of improving themselves.

And they breed. Both by influencing others to their worldview, and literally, by producing more legions of angry useless people.

The West has been drowning in these angry useless people for some time. In the old days, we sent them out to the fields and had them do work for hire, because unless told what to do, they did nothing.

Now we have to figure out a way to take away the power they wield — votes and consumer dollars — so we can rebuild the society they and their dogma has ruined.

This diagnosis is not as simple as blaming the rich (the left) or blaming a lack of Jesus in our modern world, but it lets us see what actually did us in: an idea, which produced a herd of militantly useless and selfish people, a.k.a. narcissists.

All of us who love living in a successful society, and not a third-world failure, value things like the space program, the military and other forward-thinking objectives. We are opposed by those who want the entitlement checks to keep coming.

The battle lines are drawn. Finally. We live in exciting times.
