Civilizational Failure Via The Metaphysical Connection Between Hubris And Nemesis

by Johann Theron on April 21, 2018

Peering into the Fall of the Roman Empire allows us to identify a sequence of events and see the same pattern present in the recent history of Western Civilization. We can confirm this through an entirely different method if we look at Western Civilization as an organization and analyze its structure.

Humans are gregarious by nature and therefore, just like dogs, need to socialize. If socialization becomes our organizing principles, however, it replaces our goal of having a functional civilizational order. For example extraversion as policy allows our language to be redefined, with consequences for trade and diplomacy.

But human characteristics rub off on the tools they use. Different cultures appear to have designed different organizations, which contrasts the innate tendency of organizations desire to permanence based on the secret human desire to live forever.

While we cannot fault the design of a spade, we can detect a structural design defect when we see the collapse sequence in organizations. The first stage of organizational failure is called hubris, which is a typical human failure too. The last stage is capitulation which can be compared to Dark Organizations both of which also relate to human tendencies such as being defensive, deviant, apathetic and toxic.

Although most would argue that civilizations develop unintentionally, such as those who suggest that European monks effectively started Europe, whether it was designed as one or becomes one, every civilization is an organization. Therefore applying typical organizational theory to the study of civilization will make sense of discussions of societal decline.

One terrible example of societal decline is genocide, where perpetrator hubris obviates responsibility to acknowledge what they are openly doing, while their victims have capitulated, refusing to run away despite the obvious, visible and “hubristically taunting” threat.

From an organizational perspective, academics have seen the problems of hubris as well. Professor Eugene Sadler-Smith also engages an African initiative for African leaders on this topic, called the “Conversation” which includes contributions from South African Universities as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Even though conceptually hubris is a fairly robust concept, the reader must be made aware that different organizational examples of human groups suffering hubris emerge from both sides of the pond.

For example, in his attempt to influence African leaders, Sadler-Smith describes both Bush and Trump as “hubrists” (and therefore bad). A different opinion suggests that if Bush hates Trump, they cannot be “the same,” can they? However, referencing Tony Blair as hubristic was confirmed by the author Tom Bower, and it is known that Bush and Blair hubristically entered the Iraq war under false pretenses. To date, Trump appears to have a different, perhaps more business oriented approach, namely a profit and loss strategy.

For this argument, a liberal perspective on hubris provides a good starting point for this argument because liberals generally think that Utopian civilizations cannot decline and that decline itself can be “fixed.” The University therefore started The Hubris Project to help business leaders avoid the perils and pitfalls of hubris.

From above the subtext is concerning though. For example, saying that Bush and Trump are bad, indicates that America will see its nemesis soon, which appears to be eerily true. Nemesis arises from hubris as follows:

The Ancient Greeks recognised its hazards and counselled against hubris in their myths and tragedies, often tying it to a reckoning meted out by the goddess of retribution and vengeance, Nemesis.

A Grecian example where hubris and nemesis meet is as follows:

But perhaps the most well known of the Greek myths to warn against hubris is that of Daedalus and Icarus.

The myth recounts how, in order to escape from incarceration on the island of Crete, the master craftsman Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings made from feathers and wax. The wings gave Daedalus and his son Icarus the godlike power of flight. However, the young, ebullient and overconfident Icarus ignored Daedalus’ warnings not to fly too high; the sun’s heat melted the wax holding the wings together and Icarus plunged to his death.

The question that Sadler-Smith then asks is:

If hubris is an occupational hazard for leaders, is nemesis its unavoidable outcome?

This is an important question for him because his own income depends on solutions to avoid it. For the rest of us, the important logical fact is that nemesis will indeed appear unless hubris is stopped. Collins described this as well. You cannot stop nemesis once it appears, but you can stop hubris.

To solve the riddle of organizational hubris, we must first solve the riddle of human hubris. This points to incorrect socialization as a causal factor. But socialization only addresses something that is there; it cannot prevent it, meaning that this something is a standard occupational risk requiring management, for individuals, but also for organizations and indeed, for civilizations.

There is no doubt that America and indeed Western Civilization will be facing its nemesis soon. In one interpretation there are still seven years left to fix the reigning hubris of “striking” or “droning” towards utopian glory, before nemesis irreversibly strikes back.

Impeached Cat Lady Blames Brazil’s Problems on White People

Roy Batty

Daily Stormer
April 22, 2018

You would think that Brazil would serve as a cautionary tale. But no, liberal lack of self-awareness leads to them always finding a way to blame Whitey.

RT:

Elitism and how the very rich people look down on the poor are a major problem for Brazil, the country’s former President Dilma Rousseff told Ex-Ecuador President Rafael Correa during an interview on RT.

A protégé and political successor to President Lula da Silva, Dilma Rousseff continued his policies, aimed at eradicating poverty in Brazil. Under successive governments of the left-leaning Workers’ Party, the Latin American country saw a significant improvement in living conditions for millions of people. In 2014, Brazil for the first time was cross off the UN’s World Hunger Map, after reducing the number of undernourished people by 80 percent in 10 years.

Discussing her government’s policies with Correa, Rousseff agreed that elitism is a serious problem in Brazil, causing a lot of grief and suffering for common folk. Some members of the elite see all poor people as their enemy, she said.

“In Brazil, the poor and the dark-skinned were the enemy… They were tortured, they were arrested, they were turned into a lower class, stripped of all rights. We began to change this situation,” she said. “There is still a lot to be done: we need to distribute the wealth in the country, implement tax reform [and] end the oligopoly of the media and banks that control different aspects of the country’s life.”

Rousseff’s second presidential term, however, was cut short by an impeachment over breaches of budget rules. She was replaced by Michel Temer, who has since been accused of taking bribes, has dropped to a single-digit approval rating and used heavy-handed tactics to crack down on protests against his government. Rousseff says her downfall amounted to a parliamentary coup, backed by a smear campaign in the media owned by a handful of oligarchs.

I’m pretty sure that Rousseff was corrupt as well. And a crypto-Jew.

She’s even rocking the ((((((Trotsky)))))) hairdo in a not-so-subtle dog-whistle.

Also, as a rule, all politics in multicultural, brown countries are corrupt.

Taking an even wider view of the issue, no one becomes a politician for noble reasons – they do it to enrich themselves, get political immunity, to collect bribes from companies, to feed their ego too perhaps.

It’s not that different in the US nowadays.

Politicians are terrible people, but in a healthy society, they have their uses. Usually, a grass-roots effort to change something or fight back against change appoints a slick, good-looking and totally immoral representative to send to the capital. There he shmoozes with the bugmen bureaucrats and mandarins making inroads to achieve what he was sent there by his grassroots base to do. More often than not, he cuts a deal that makes both sides happy, and perhaps enriches himself in the process a bit too.

Everyone walks away from it with something, and the Republic chugs along none the worse for wear.

Things get drastically worse when diversity is brought into the picture though.

And frankly, it was Brazil’s corrupt White elites that allowed all of this to pass. Just like in South Africa and in the US. Helped along by Jewish subversion, our White politicians cut deal after deal that condemned us to becoming the next Brazil.

I feel no solidarity with them – even if a cat lady crypto-Jew takes shots at them for being White.

Besides, we’re rapidly entering an era where people will feel the need to do away with politicians. White people will want leaders and generals instead.

Every Time Starbucks Cucks, Another White Person Grows a Spine

 From: http://stuffblackpeopledontlike.blogspot.com/

Previously on SBDPL: The Business Model of Starbucks Explained: The Reason 86% Black Jackson, MS Doesn’t Have a Starbucks

What percent of Starbucks customer do you think are white people? I’d wager the number is near 80 percent.

We can all pretend to #RaceTogether, but in the end we know it’s all a lie. [Fake Starbucks coupon aimed at blacks uses the N-word, USA Today, 4-18-18]:

Fake Starbucks coupons purporting to offer free coffee to African Americans are making the rounds on social media.

Our grandchildren will learn about this image, a powerful reminder Black-Run America held white people and their civilization hostage for decades as we refused to concede our ancestors knew better when it came to interracial relations…
The voucher, believed to be a hate-filled prank crafted by the white-supremacy movement, features a QR code that, when scanned, reveals the N-word.
The bogus certificate surfaced Wednesday amid legitimate calls for a boycott over Starbucks’ decision to phone 911 to have police arrest two black men at a downtown Philadelphia location because they hadn’t bought anything last Thursday. They were denied use of a restroom even though they explained they were waiting for a friend. The furor arose over what is viewed as a double standard compared to how white customers are treated. 
As for the phony coupons, “This is completely false and in no way associated with Starbucks,” Jaime Riley, a spokeswoman for the coffee chain, said in an e-mail. “They cannot be redeemed in our stores.”
Several different versions of the same coupon are circulating.
The so-called “Let’s Talk Coupon” reads, “We’re sorry. We know we can do better. Starbucks values all people of color and we are working on employee sensitivity training. The best dialogue starts over a cup of coffee and we’d like to buy you one.”
The apology and the reference to having open conversations about racism are references to real actions Starbucks has taken. CEO Kevin Johnson has apologized for last week’s incident. On Tuesday, the company announced plans to close all company-owned stores in the U.S. for the afternoon on May 29 for racial-bias training.
The voucher says the offer for a free beverage of any size and any variety is valid from April 18 until May 18. One version of the coupon adds that it’s for “People of Color only”, while another says, “Limited to persons of African American heritage and/or identity at time of exchange.”
In addition to the faux legalese, the coupon features the Starbucks logo, the company’s iconic shade of green and photos of the chain’s drinks.
To use the coupon, baristas are told to use the discount code 1488, which is an allusion to two numbers white supremacists have embraced.
The so-called “14 Words” is a white-power slogan and 88 is a reference to “Heil Hitler,” words that both begin with the eighth letter of the alphabet.
NAACP spokesman Malik Russell called the coupon “an unfortunate response” to steps civil rights organizations are taking to improve how the country deals with racism.
“Individuals are seeking to take advantage of these discussions to create more dissension,” he said. “That’s not the direction we need to be going in.”

The only direction black people believe we should be going is one where the destination ensures Africans in America get free coffee for life and the right to confiscate white owned-property/retirement savings as reparations.

That’s always what #RaceTogether meant, a one-way monologue instead of a dialogue on race, for whites have no legitimate voice when presented with a list of racial grievances from blacks.

Colonization By Indian Leftists—the Downside of “Merit-Based Immigration”

By

“Merit-based immigration” is seen as the gold standard of immigration reform by many Republicans and conservative policy wonks. But it could lead to their political ruin.

We already have a clear window into what a merit-based policy could bring to the political landscape: look at the Indian colonization of Seattle’s Eastside—the area across Lake Washington from Seattle which stretches from Sammamish in the south to Bothell in the north. It has been transformed, in roughly 25 years, from a region that leaned Republican into a cesspool of socialism.

It all started with the rise of Bill Gates’ Microsoft in Redmond, followed by likeminded corporate titans who gorged themselves on the delights of Indian staffing agencies that exploit the H1-B visa program. Once a foreign worker’s H1B status expires in six years, them it’s time for an employment-based green card. These green cards have for years been handed out like popcorn with curry on top to almost any Indian techie who agrees to work for, on average, one-third lower pay than American tech workers. [Wages Falling But Congress Wants MORE Guest Workers, by Leo Hohmann, WND.com, March 16, 2016]

In 1969 the first Indian-migrant family arrived in Redmond [What It Was Like To Be Redmond’s First Indian Family, by Liz Jones, Kuow.org, November 18, 2014]

By 2014 Redmond had 7,921 Indians and Microsoft had transformed the city’s demographics [Redmond, WA Population and Races, USA.com, 2010-2014 statistics]

In the words of a retired academic who resides on Washington’s Willapa Bay coastline and blogs at darkgalaxies.org:

Microsoft was an American-led company for many years until its upper leadership became Indian, beginning with the head of personnel some 20 or so years ago. Although the data released by the company is hard to interpret, employees note that the firm is a plurality Indian company in employees, as well as in leadership.

(Pretty clever of the Indians to colonize Microsoft. Pretty foolish to let the Indians colonize Microsoft.)

[Microsoft Diversity Policy, by Admin 777, February 25, 2018]

While Microsoft was turning Redmond into an Indian colony, similar transformations were taking place all over the Eastside. In King County (which also includes Seattle, although most Indians live on the Eastside) the population was 4,000 by 1990. But, as Kuow.org’s Jones wrote:

Then the Microsoft ‘Boom’ happened. And since 1990, the Asian Indian population in King County has tripled every decade. Census estimates from 2013 show 58,465 Indians living in King County.

But I wonder if the quoted numbers are too low. Indians occupy hundreds of apartment complexes and you can drive for miles through new developments of single-family homes where you see Indian women walking on the sidewalks wearing traditional Indian dress. I hear of classrooms in which virtually every student is Indian. You can go into a big-box store in Redmond and the large crowd of shoppers is overwhelmingly Indian—only two or three whites are visible at any given time.

There are an estimated 13,500 illegal Indians in Washington State. And, according to an Indian advocacy group, there are 300,000 Indians waiting to obtain employment-based green cards in the US and 30,000 in Washington State. [Birds In A Cage: The Indian Green Card Backlog, by Melissa Hellmann, Seattle Times, February 21, 2018]

The huge influx of Indians may seem harmless—other than to the displaced American workers, but who cares about them?—but the political fallout impacts everyone in Washington State.

The 45th Legislative District—which stretches along much of the Eastside (including the suburbs of Redmond)—had a Republican representing it in the Washington State Senate. But when Republican Sen. Andy Hill died it became a foregone conclusion that, given Indian leftist propensities (a National Asian-American survey found 77 percent of Indian voters voted for Hillary against Trump), Indian Democrat Manka Dhingra would win.

Alexander Burns and Kirk Johnson reported for the New York Times:

Dow Constantine, the King County executive and a Democrat, said that the once very real political divisions of the region—Democratic-leaning Seattle on the West Side of Lake Washington, Republican-leaning enclaves to the east—have been shattered by demographic change, too, especially as the immigrants who came to work in tech jobs encouraged others in the countries they left to follow them.

[Poised for West Coast Dominance, Democrats Eye Grand Agenda, by Alexander Burns and Kirk Johnson, New York Times, November 4, 2017]

The significance of this: the election of Dhingra gave the Democrats control of the Washington State Senate—they already had the House and the governor’s mansion. That virtually guarantees Washington residents will be subjected to the full Democrat wish list—a carbon tax, an income tax, a capital-gains tax, a tax per-mile driven, and wholesale gun-control laws.

It also means more resistance to President Trump’s efforts to enforce immigration laws. Sujeet Rajan wrote in News India:

…Dhingra’s win will also be an endorsement of many of the liberal, anti-Trump positions she has taken, including supporting the now nationally-recognized state Attorney General Bob Ferguson in his numerous lawsuits to overturn Trump’s travel ban on some Muslim countries, and help illegal immigrants from deportation…

[Why Manka Dhingra Is Important For Democrats, by Sujeet Rajan, New India Times, October 13, 2017]

Unfortunately, the election of aggressive, Leftist, pro-immigration, anti-enforcement Indian politicians is not confined to Washington State. All over the country there are Indian and Asian enclaves created by the tech industry’s desire for a cheap imported workforce. And all over the country there are an increasing number of Indians seeking political power. Ronak D. Desai in Forbes reported a statement by Deepak Raj and Raj Goyle:

At a time when so many of our values are under attack, Indian Americans are stepping up to run, win, and lead. Last Tuesday, 25 of them won their elections in New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington State. We already know of 50 candidates on the ballot next November—so it is critical that we lay the groundwork now to elect the most viable candidates who reflect our community’s values. Our community is on the rise.

[Why Indian Americans Were Among The Biggest Winners in U.S. State & Local Election, by Ronak Desai, Forbes, November 19, 2017]

Forbes’ Desai noted that five Indians were elected to Congress—all Democrats.

Why do Indians vote this way? In an interesting analysis, Jayant Bhandari writes that “India is an extremely irrational, superstitious, and tribal country…India was long associated with Britain and has imported western institutions, ways of living, technology, etc., over the last 200-300 years, but has failed to import the concept of reason.”

Bhandari goes on:

[Indians] can only think in terms of might is right, street-smartness and political connections. Such a society cannot have any understanding of the principles of the Ten Commandments, or have respect for the individual and liberty.”

Bhandari writes of India’s Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Modi:

Under Modi’s reign, as the institutions which the British left continue to get destroyed, liberties are falling, taxes are going up without any improvements in public service, and the regulatory burden has increased significantly. The country is getting increasingly centralized as well, and brought under Modi’s command. He believes he has to do more of all these things to ensure India remains on a path to growth. This is a recipe for disaster.

[India: The World’s Fastest Growing Large Economy, by Jayant Bhandari, Acting Man, February 2, 2017]

Is it any wonder Indians in America overwhelmingly vote for the same kind of government? Ironically, because of short-term greed, corporate elites are bringing in future voters who will impose a high-tax, centralized, and over-regulated anti-business regime here—a regime which would certainly not have given corporations the recent historic tax cut and ongoing deregulation?

But if Indians aren’t the right choice for merit-based immigration, then who—Chinese? A Chinese friend of mine who recently visited Taiwan told me that Taiwanese are increasingly siding with Mainland China because they want to be on the side of a country growing in wealth and power. This person said trying to talk to them about human rights, freedom, and democracy was like trying to upload a new brain to a robot.

This friend agreed that the combination of an ancient culture and new wealth tends to give both Indians and Chinese an arrogant feeling of superiority—that they have nothing to learn from Americans about individual freedom and democracy. They are here to make money. They don’t want to assimilate and become real Americans.

The only chance of saving the freedom created by our Founding Fathers: a moratorium on all immigration.

Ethnic Civil War in California is Unavoidable, Prepare Accordingly

In 2014, Latinos will surpass whites as largest racial/ethnic group in California. … In 2000, California’s 33.9 million residents were 46.6% white non-Hispanic, 32.3% Latino, 11.1% Asian American or Pacific Islander, 6.4% black non-Hispanic and about 1% Native American.Jan 24, 2014

The demographers agreed: At some point in 2014, Latinos would pass whites as the largest ethnic group in California.

Determining when exactly that milestone would occur was more of a tricky question. Counting people isn’t like counting movie ticket receipts.

The official confirmation had to wait until new population figures were released by the Census Bureau this summer. The new tally, released in late June, shows that as of July 1, 2014, about 14.99 million Latinos live in California, edging out the 14.92 million whites in the state.

The shift shouldn’t come as a surprise. State demographers had previously expected the change to occur sometime in 2013, but slow population growth pushed back projections. In January 2014, the state Department of Finance estimated the shift would take place at some point in March.

Ethnic Civil War in California is Unavoidable

From the Chicago Tribune:

The past has never been the past. We are a country that has been at war with itself for most of its existence.

But it isn’t just a case of white versus black or dysfunctional party politics. Conflict never stands apart from systemic failure, but peaks at a time of convergence. And that is where we are.

Of course, President Donald Trump is the poison in the water, but he came along at a time when black churches, once front and center of the civil rights movement, haven’t really shown any sign of an organized effort to publicly call out bigotry.

And Trump is not responsible for the NAACP becoming as outdated as its acronym, relegating itself to a booking company that issues travel warnings.

It is not Trump’s fault that for eight years of the Obama administration, Democrats rested on self-righteousness at having elected the first black president — blind to the fact that one victory, no matter the magnitude, doesn’t guarantee the health of the party or the nation.

Being anti-Trump is not policy, but with serious issues like global warming cast aside, opposing Trump is the only way for Democrats to stand for something, anything.

And even though only second-string Republicans show up for interviews in defense of Trump, not enough Republicans have had the courage to act in favor of saving the democracy.

Indeed, for many in Trump’s administration, this moment in history is more than they were ever due, and they’ll hold on to it with both hands.

Meanwhile, progressive whites have for the most part retired to the suburbs, satisfied that being friendly and accepting was enough to outweigh bigotry.

And the generations that sprang from this unintentional complacency took their own path forward.

Regarding Hispanic and Latino Americans, now the largest ethnic minority in the U.S., Trump has done a good job intimidating this population to the extent that even legal immigrants would rather be silent than risk becoming a target of bigots.

Having witnessed the mob mentality at Trump rallies, and the skirmishes that have already taken place in some communities, is it really too far a stretch to imagine chaos in our neighborhoods?

That common purpose cannot reside comfortably with individual rights is proof of our lack of courage in the face of adversity.

In this moment we are nothing like our Founding Fathers.

America is dying, and diversity and multiculturalism advanced by jewish interests to control, manipulate, ethnically cleanse and eventually genocide the founding white majority of America is why America is dying. This process CANNOT BE UNDONE. The only remaining option is trial by fire, whites must prepare themselves, physically, economically, and materially for the collapse of their nations, for only then do we have a chance at taking back what is ours by birthright, and removing the threats to our people. Collapse is without a doubt coming.

We have the ONLY argument that is undeniable in our moral right to fight and remove any and all threats to our people:

From http://thosewhocansee.blogspot.ae/

They’re not us: In-group preference

‘Birds of a feather flock together.’  With the glaring exception of ethno-masochistic modern NW Euros, preferring to be with one’s own kind is the norm in all times and places. Even today, does anyone raise an eyebrow at Chinatown, Greektown, or Little Havana?

Sticking with our own kind in NYC

As it is a sentiment so universally indulged in by all ethnic groups, one can hardly fault our forebears for sharing it.

Benjamin Franklin

Founding father and polyglot Benjamin Franklin, for example, in his 1755 Observations concerning the increase of mankind, &c:

‘Which leads me to add one remark: That the number  of purely white people in the world is proportionally very small. …  I could wish their numbers  were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, scouring our  planet, by clearing America of woods, …,  ‘Why should we in the sight of superior beings, darken its  people? Why increase the sons of Africa, by planting them in America, where we have so fair an opportunity, by excluding all blacks and tawneys, of increasing the lovely white and red?’

Why indeed? And even he admitted his bias:

‘But perhaps  I am partial to the complexion of my Country, for such kind of partiality is natural to Mankind.’

Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson, quoted above, expounds further on these differences:
Dancing slaves in Brazil

‘[Blacks] are at least as brave, and more adventuresome. But this may perhaps proceed from a want of forethought, which prevents their seeing a danger till it be present. When present, they do not go through it with more coolness or steadiness than the whites. They are more ardent after their female: but love seems with them to be more an eager desire, than a tender delicate mixture of sentiment and sensation. Their griefs are transient.  … In general, their existence appears to participate more of sensation than reflection. . . .’

Diversity Has Failed, Only question remains is how long do we have before this nation begins to break along racial lines. With the way things are accelerating, not much time is left.

If you doubt the jewish Influence in the collapse of our nation your deny reality in your stupidity.

Winston Churchill  on the jew said:

The Bolshevik movement was widely seen as being fomented by powerful Jews. Winston Churchill, in a 1920 editorial, Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People:

‘There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creating of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistic Jews. It is certainly the very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. 

‘Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders . . . In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astounding. And the prominent if not the principal part in the system of terrorism applied by the extraordinary Commissions for combating Counter Revolution has been take by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses.’

Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm, in a 1922 editorial in the Chicago Tribune, shared the same view:

A Jew cannot be a true patriot. He is something different, like a bad insect. He must be kept apart, out of a place where he can do mischief – even by pogroms, if necessary. The Jews are responsible for Bolshevism in Russia, and Germany too. I was far too indulgent with them during my reign, and I bitterly regret the favors I showed the prominent Jewish bankers.’

Richard Nixon on the Jew

Nixon, quoted earlier, said this in a 1973 phone call with ((((((Henry Kissinger)))))) on an upcoming US-Soviet summit:

An old trope still hanging on (‘((((((AIPAC))))))’ = American Jewish Lobby)

‘Let me say, Henry, it’s gonna be the worst thing that happened to Jews in American history,’ Nixon said. ‘If they torpedo this summit — and it might go down for other reasons — I’m gonna put the blame on them, and I’m going to do it publicly at 9 o’clock at night before 80 million people,’ he vowed. ‘I won’t mind one goddamn but to have a little anti-Semitism if it’s on that issue,’ adding: ‘They put the Jewish interest above America’s interest and it’s about goddamn time that the Jew in America realizes he’s an American first and a Jew second.’

Harry Truman

Truman too resented them pushing their own group interests. Henry Wallace, Sec. of Commerce, in his memoirs on 1946 negotiations over the new Jewish state:

May 16, 1948 headline

Truman was ‘exasperated’ over Jewish pressure that he support Zionist rule over Palestine. Wallace added ‘Pres. Truman expressed himself as being very much ‘put out’ with the Jews. He said that “Jesus Christ couldn’t please them when he was here on Earth, so how could anyone expect that I would have any luck?” Pres. Truman said he had no use for them and didn’t care what happened to them.’

H.G. Wells 

Author H.G. Wells pointed out the same:

‘Zionism is an expression of Jewish refusal to assimilate. If the Jews have suffered, it is because they have regarded themselves as a chosen people.
‘A careful study of anti-Semitism prejudice and accusations might be of great value to many Jews, who do not adequately realize the irritations they inflict.’

Some of our favorite novelists were ethnic realtalkers

Roald Dahl

Beloved writer Roald Dahl (of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fame) said in a New Statesman interview:

‘There is a trait in the Jewish character that does provoke animosity, maybe it’s a kind of lack of generosity towards non-Jews. I mean, there’s always a reason why anti-anything crops up anywhere; even a stinker like Hitler didn’t just pick on them for no reason.’

Jews have long been criticized for their perceived dishonesty towards out-groups.

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Dostoevsky, cited above in Diary of a Writer (1877), also says:

The Abolition of Serfdom in Russia, Alphonse Mucha, 1914

‘And, in truth, the whole activity of the Jews in these border regions of ours consisted of rendering the native population as much as possible inescapably dependent on them, taking advantage of the local laws.  ….  ‘In this respect the Jew preserves all his originality as compared with other Russian aliens, and of course, the reason therefore is that status of his, that spirit of which specifically breathes pitilessness for everything that is not Jew, with disrespect for any people and tribe, for every human creature who is not a Jew.’

Mark Twain

Twain, whom we cited earlier, mounted a spirited defense of the Jew as a fine upstanding citizen and good businessman, yet still conceded (1899) that:

He has a reputation for various small forms of cheating, and for practising oppressive usury, and for burning himself out to get the insurance, and for arranging cunning contracts which leave him an exit but lock the other man in, and for smart evasions which find him safe and comfortable just within the strict letter of the law, when court and jury know very well that he has violated the spirit of it.’

Napoleon

No less than Napoleon accused them of exploiting outsiders. From an 1806 speech before the Council of State:

‘The Jews have practiced usury since the time of Moses, and oppressed the other peoples. Meanwhile, the Christians were only rarely usurers, falling into disgrace when they did so. We ought to ban the Jews from commerce because they abuse it . . . The evils of the Jews do not stem from individuals but from the fundamental nature of this people.’

((((((Emmanuel)))))) Kant

Philosopher ((((((Emmanuel)))))) Kant, from an anthropology lecture he gave throughout the latter 1700s:

1910 postcard satirizing Jews’ exploitation of out-groups

The Palestinians [Jews] living among us have, for the most part, earned a not unfounded reputation for being cheaters, because of their spirit of usury since their exile. Certainly, it seems strange to conceive of a nation of cheaters; but it is just as odd to think of a nation of merchants, the great majority of whom, bound by an ancient superstition that is recognized by the State they live in, seek no civil dignity and try to make up for this loss by the advantage of duping the people among whom they find refuge, and even one another.

Voltaire

French Enlightenment hero Voltaire made similar observations, worded somewhat more harshly:

‘We find in them only an ignorant and barbarous people, who have long united the most sordid avarice with the most detestable superstition and the most invincible hatred for every people by whom they are tolerated and enriched.’

H.L. Mencken

Writer H.L. Mencken characterized them as vain and lacking in courage:

‘The Jews could be put down very plausibly as the most unpleasant race ever heard of. As commonly encountered they lack any of the qualities that mark the civilized man: courage, dignity, incorruptibility, ease, confidence. They have vanity without pride, voluptuousness without taste, and learning without wisdom.  Their fortitude, such as it is, is wasted upon puerile objects, and their charity is mainly a form of display.’

T.S. Eliot

Poet T.S. Eliot, in a 1925 personal letter, found them envious:

The poet whose work spawned ‘Cats’

I am always inclined to suspect the racial envy and jealousy which makes that people [Jews] inclined to bolshevism in some form (not always political).’ Later, in a 1933 lecture, he talked about the importance of ‘unity of religious background…. Reasons of race and religion combine to make any large number of free-thinking Jews undesirable.’

((((((Karl Marx))))))

((((((Karl Marx)))))), himself of Jewish descent, accused his own group of being money-hungry:

What is the object of the Jew’s worship in this world? Usury.What is his worldly god? Money. . . . What is the foundation of the Jew in this world? Practical necessity, private advantage. . . . The bill of exchange is the Jew’s real God. His God is the illusory bill of exchange.’

Some of the most intelligent, pragmatic, driven and ruthless Men in History Understood the Jewish question. It is undeniable their role in the destruction of the west and its white nations.

Differences in character– in future orientation, in out-group attitude, in patriotism– tend to kill multiculturalist dreams in the egg. Ethnic groups with vastly different characters simply do not live comfortably side-by-side. Our forebears, we now see, were not so squeamish about these prickly truths as we are.

Time is here for whites to cast of their white guilt, and start think whats good for our race and people, WE COME FIRST.

Willful Ignorance: Why We Stay Oblivious to Facts that Threaten Our Health and the Planet

Renegade Editor’s Note: Although this article is specifically dealing with willful ignorance regarding our health and the environment, it could be applied to many of the subjects with which we deal.

By Anna Hunt

How many times have you read or heard that refined sugar and processed meats are bad for you? Or how many pictures have you seen that show plastic pollution pervading the oceans? But yet, many of us remain willfully blind to these fundamental facts. We make very little changes in our lifestyle even though our habits may be destroying our bodies and planet. Why does this happen?

In her book Willful Blindness, Margaret Hefferman argues that it is our human nature to willingly ignore the facts, even if they are destructive.

Failing to see – or admit to ourselves or our colleagues – the issues and problems in plain sight can ruin private lives and bring down corporations. ~ Margaret Hefferman

Willful Ignorance is Just Easy

Each one of us has constructed our own specific set of beliefs. We base them on our past experiences, ideas and relationships with others.

Your beliefs are hard-wired into your brain. Thus, instead of taking the time to assess contradictions and form doubts, you willfully rationalize your beliefs.

Let’s be honest. It’s easy to block out uncomfortable realities (like prevalence of the herbicide glyphosate in food products marketed to children…or the fact that seven million tons of plastic end up in the oceans each year.) These facts can be scary and difficult to digest. Truly accepting them would require thought and action, and who has time for that!

No one wants to be called dramatic, or Debbie-downer, or conspiracy theorist. Frankly, we just want to be accepted by our peers. Conformity often trumps rationale. Take a moment and think: how often do you use your culture, social norms or identity to justify your point of view or action? I’m definitely guilty of it.

Cognitive psychologist, Albert Bandura, states:

…people transform harmful practices into worthy ones, coming up with social justification, distancing themselves with euphemisms and numbers, ignoring the long-term consequences of their actions.

I would guess we’re all guilty of rejecting contradictions to our beliefs about what lifestyle is acceptable, especially if they make us uncomfortable.

Researchers Daniel T. Gilbert et al. from The University of Texas at Austin examined why this happens. They suggest that “belief is first, easy, and inexorable and that doubt is retroactive, difficult, and only occasionally successful.”

What Gilbert et. al. found is that when an idea or fact supports a belief, then we accept it passively without much efforts. Yet, when an idea or fact create doubt, we need the cognitive ability and motivation logically evaluate it.

Basically, we have to make ourselves disbelieve our initial belief. That, my friends, takes effort. Many of us are not willing to put in that effort. Hence, we’re back to willful ignorance.

Hefferman states:

People are about twice as likely to seek information that supports their own point of view as they are to consider an opposing idea.

The Influencers of our Beliefs

What’s concerning is that many of our beliefs are shaped by corporations and media. We do not give this much thought, because very few people are willing to talk about subliminal programming. (This is a perfect example of willful ignorance!)

Yet, most generations living today grew up in front of the TV. Newscasters, Hollywood producers, and advertisers have been feeding ideas of what is right, what is acceptable and what should be ridiculed.

The problem is surmounted with the influence of religions, educators and governments. Most of these have their own agendas, unbeknownst to us during our childhood and young adulthood.

It’s OK to Change Your Mind

What’s exciting is that we now live is a completely different world than even 20 years ago. We have access to massive amounts of information. It is all at our fingertips.

Social psychologists, activists, and thought leaders, such as Hefferman, are able to share their knowledge, experience and wisdom with the masses.

Where the challenge lies is in our willingness to give thought to contradictions. It’s ok to consider information that oppose the official story you were fed in school or the marketing pitch of massive corporations. It’s ok to change your mind.

Perhaps milk “Does not do A Body Good.” When you’re drinking a Coke, you don’t “Catch the Wave”…instead you pollute the wave. Maybe, just maybe, it’s not weird but smart to homeschool, opt out of politics, and stop reading/watching the news.

Ms. Hefferman writes in the book:

Whether individual or collective, willful blindness doesn’t have a single driver, but many. It is a human phenomenon to which we all succumb in matters little and large. We can’t notice and know everything: the cognitive limits of our brain simply won’t let us. That means we have to filter or edit what we take in. So what we choose to let through and to leave out is crucial. We mostly admit the information that makes us feel great about ourselves, while conveniently filtering whatever unsettles our fragile egos and most vital beliefs.

It may be beneficial to reflect on what you’re filtering out because it intimidates your ego. Next time something contradicts one of your beliefs, it may be a noteworthy practice to give these new ideas some thought.
