Is the War on Drugs Racist?

There are two main forms this claim can take: that the war on drugs is racist in intent, e.g. that the war on drugs was created to be racist (whether it is or not); and that the war on drugs is racist in effect, e.g. that the war on drugs targets blacks and Hispanics over whites to a greater extent than blacks and Hispanics are more likely to use drugs (if they are at all). There is a veritable cottage industry of books built upon propping up these narratives. Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age …

“Bizarro Salon” Awkwardly Reveals RealNews

Those merry memesters at 4chan’s /pol/ forum are at it again, busting narratives and realtalking their way into the history books. An especially precocious mischief-maker created a Chrome (Spoogle) extension that changes “White” to “black” on various shitlib websites like PuffedHo, Feedbuzz, and Shalom. An anon got the idea to start flooding Twitter with screenshots of the extension in action under the hashtag #WhiteToBlack Perfect. Let’s see what happens. As a wag chortled, finally Shalom’s headlines make sense!

And the Mask Is Officially Off

Traditional European culture has many enemies, some of whom instinctively act for the destruction of European societies and institutions. Until recently men like (((Bill Kristol))) have been judicious enough to maintain public silence about their true feelings, but the rebellion of the working class Trump voter has loosened the tongues of bitter, irrelevant pundits like never before:

Hope Not Hate Deserve To Be Hated

Hope Not Hate are absolutely despised by the white working class British, and they’ve earned every drop of that hatred many times over, they deserve to be hated, they deserve be treat like pariahs, they deserve humiliation and defeat, they deserve to be humiliated in their defeats. Not so long ago Hope Not Hate’s primary concern was hunting down members of the EDL and BNP, people who committed minor infractions of forcibly implemented multicultural dogma. Somebody had to keep the uppity working class whites in check as they were being demographically replaced and phased out by vibrant immigrants, and the unemployable …

THE DEMISE OF FAKE NEWS

Almost a century ago, Hilaire Belloc wrote two books about 21st century American politics.1 At the time Belloc did not know he was writing about Donald Trump and the alt-right, but his prescient observations perfectly fit this amazing year because our current pre-revolutionary state mimics what has been periodically recurring for millennia. Belloc’s first book, The Free Press: An Essay on the Manipulation of News and Opinion, and how to Counter It, should be studied by everyone combating the pervasive influence of The Cathedral. The Free Press describes early 20th century media hegemony and the few free papers that were …

Trump Dreams vs Trump Reality – Hopes Still Permitted!

For a lot of Trump supporters the past week has been a painful one. Whether we chose to react with abject panic or pretended like nothing happened, something did happen and it was something big: the Three Letter Agencies pulled-off a de facto coup against Donald Trump by forcing him to fire his most important foreign policy advisor and the man who had dared to declare that he wanted to reform the bloated and largely ineffective US intelligence community.

General Flynn Dindu Nuffin Wrong

Here we are, barely a month into the Trump presidency, and the war party in D.C. is in full dander over those pesky Russians. If the globalists had souls or even a smidgen of humanity, one could almost feel sorry for them. After all, we were supposed to be in the opening rounds of WWIII by now. “Madame President” was ready to extend the previous administration’s policy of escalation and provocation, deploying troops and missiles along Russia’s border and engineering color revolutions in her former territories. Pussy Riot was all but booked to play the Clinton Inaugural, and the great …

The Lie of Human Empathy

When questioned about what sort of morality or what overarching concerns should guide humanity, the credulous liberal will often boldly pronounce “Empathy” as the solution with the sort of glib breathlessness common to plebeians regurgitating some nugget of stupidity they feel is especially compelling. By appealing to a vague combination of sympathy and pity, the leftist has now dazzled you with his severance of the Gordian Knot in a single stroke of Kumbaya and compassion. Still unconvinced? Then you need to research mirror neurons or *seriously contemplate the possibility that you are in fact a psychopath, which is an obsolete …

Origins of Northwest European Guilt Culture. Part II

Reconstructed Mesolithic roundhouse near Northumberland, Great Britain (source: Andrew Curtis) At different times and in different regions, humans have entered larger social environments that are no longer limited to close kin. Because there is less interaction with any one person and more interaction with non-kin, correct behavior can no longer be enforced by the to and fro of family relationships. A moral code develops, with rules enforced by ostracism and shaming. In Northwest Europe, the moral code is also enforced by guilt—a form of self-shaming where the wrongdoer inflicts self-punishment even when he or she is the sole witness to …

The Origins of Northwest European Guilt Culture

Ruth Benedict first made the distinction between “shame cultures” and “guilt cultures” (source). Pervasive feelings of guilt are part of a behavioral package that enabled Northwest Europeans to adapt to complex social environments where kinship is less important and where rules of correct behavior must be obeyed with a minimum of surveillance. Is this pervasive guilt relatively recent, going back only half a millennium? Or is it much older? As societies grew larger and more complex, it became necessary to interact with people who were less closely related. This new social environment was made to work by extending to non-kin …

Immigrant Crime Rates in Germany

One of the problems critics of mass immigration face is that there aren’t that many concrete statistics on their crime rates (substantially thanks to European institutions being in the habit of forbidding the gathering of said race/ethnicity data). But things do leak through every now and then and more often than not they tend to confirm the hateful stereotypes.

The Co-option of the Left: Its Fatal Misunderstanding of Marx

It’s obvious to anyone with eyes to see that the contemporary Left is spectacularly alienating its own natural constituency with its increasingly unfocused and incoherent forms of protest. Certainly, they are vocal in denouncing Trump as a fascist, and Brexit as some sort of ur-nationalism, but what are they actually seeking to offer as an alternative? Anyone who considers this question soon comes up against the realization that they don’t really offer serious answers. Their childish adherence to every form of identity fluidity is an intellectual embarrassment that degrades and hampers the very programs that they wish to progress. But …

No Country for White Men?

At the end of the nineteenth century a fatuous humanitarianism prevailed and immigrants of all kinds were welcomed to “The Refuge of the Oppressed,” regardless of whether they were needed in our industrial development or whether they tended to debase our racial unity. The “Myth of the Melting Pot” was, at that time, deemed by the unthinking to be a part of our national creed. – Madison Grant, Conquest of a Continent

The Money Masters Question

“A change of a fundamental kind has taken place in the economic structure of Europe whereby the old basis had ceased to be wealth and had become debt. In the old Europe wealth had been measured in lands, crops, herds and minerals; but a new standard had now been introduced, namely, a form of money to which the title ‘credit’ had been given.” (Napoleon Bonaparte)

A Fruitful Encounter

  Did the Christian doctrine of original sin create the guilt cultures of Northwest Europe? Or did the arrow of causality run the other way? By definition, gene-culture co-evolution is reciprocal. Genes and culture are both in the driver’s seat. This point is crucial because there is a tendency to overreact to cultural determinism and to forget that culture does matter, even to the point of influencing the makeup of our gene pool. Through culture, humans have directed their own evolution.

The Double Standard of Reproductive Rights

For a long time, the place where the double standards of feminism – and even, to some extent, those of mainstream society — were most clearly visible with regard to men has been on the subject of reproductive rights. The double standards are clearest here because, unlike other topics that require extensive research, this particular one is a built-in part of almost everyone’s everyday experience. Anyone who has ever had sex, been in a relationship, or contemplated having children will have experienced this double standard to some degree. When a man has sex with a woman, he is under the …

Feeling the Other’s Pain

We like to think that all people feel empathy to the same degree. In reality, it varies a lot from one person to the next, like most mental traits. We are half-aware of this when we distinguish between “normal people” and “psychopaths,” the latter having an abnormally low capacity for empathy. The distinction is arbitrary, like the one between “tall” and “short.” As with stature, empathy varies continuously among the individuals of a population, with psychopaths being the ones we find beyond an arbitrary cut-off point and who probably have many other things wrong with them. By focusing on the …

In Defense of “Anthropomorphism”

“I think you’re anthropomorphizing,” said the vet. I had brought the cat in for a routine checkup and was describing something cute she had done. I don’t remember what it was (this was some years ago). But it wasn’t the first time he had said this to me, and I had heard the same tiresome charge from others. The context was usually when I was speaking about what I took to be emotional displays on the cat’s part, as well as displays of affection. And I carried on “anthropomorphizing” after the cat died and I lived for a couple of …

The Tsar is Far

No sort of philosophy of history, whether Slavophil or Westerniser, has yet solved the enigma,  why a most unstatelike people has created such an immense and mighty state,  why so anarchistic a people is so submissive to bureaucracy,  why a people free in spirit as it were does not desire a free life?  –Nikolai Berdyaev, 1915 The sky is high; the tsar is far.  –Russian proverb Two things have mystified the Francis Fukuyamas of the world about non-Western peoples and their way of ‘adopting democracy.’  One is these peoples’ annoying propensity to produce rulers who stuff urns, crack heads, and …
